PostSubject: Destruction Of The Nalbina Settlement (Reserved for Min)   Tue Nov 13, 2012 7:22 am

The Nalbina settlement had once been rather large and prosperous, it sat on the outskirts of the large great plains in the grasslands. Surrounded by tall grass it was mostly protected from any outsiders as it was difficult to even notice. The settlers had furnished their own homes using that of what the land provided them, wood for structures, branches for roof material and then the most abundant resource the grass; which they used for waterproofing their roofs, making beds and pillows and all sorts of different things. People that had come across them nicknames them the grass people, due to where they lived and how they used the grass for mostly everything in their day to day lives. Eventually the settlers expanded and made a few more settlements in the grasslands far apart from each other and with different names.

Current Day

The Nalbina settlement was in ruins, great clouds of black smoke filled the air as the settlement burned with a great mass of flames caused by the red hot liquid that coated some of the buildings and the ground, setting alight any source of 'fuel' it could. The settlers were all but gone, their burning bodies laying scattered about the floor if not already turned to ash from the great heat of the flames, some had even melted in the red hot liquid known as magma. The great many buildings and homes the settlers had made were now destroyed, falling apart sending a great many sparks into the air almost like fireworks in a way. Along with the magma large spikes of obsidian jutted out from the collapsed buildings and the ground; it was obvious they were projectiles purposely created with the intent to harm.

On a rather large mound that over looked the settlement stood a figure, his leather jackets hood shadowed his face and allowed none to see it. His white tie fluttered lightly in the wind, visible due to the great clashing it had with his black shirt. Resting against his against his leather pants were too holsters that were attached to his belt. It was easy to make out the handle of a sword in one but no blade seemed to protrude from the handle and in the other a handgun, the shape of the holster made it clearly so. As the figure watched the settlement burn, he did nothing to try put out the fires or check to see if anyone had survived; which was highly doubtful. Instead he pivoted on his heel and turned around beginning to walk away from the now destroyed settlement.

Min was walking through the forest and started to hear the sound of fire. Quickly, she ran out with Luna, her grey wolf friend following close behind nearing the edge, Min came out to see a village or town. Or rather had been. The remains of burnt houses were scattered everywhere while lava slowly oozed through. Quickly rushing into the remains, Min looked for some people but quickly turned back. Holding up her hand, she signalled to Luna to stay put as Min took off the basket on her back and lay it on the ground. Then, holding her arm over her mouth, she ran off into the flames. A little while later, she ran back out with nothing. The smoke had blackened her blue vest and skirt into a dark blue with slightly black spots. Her fair skin was also blackened and the smoke was making her cough madly. After calming down a bit, she sat down next to Luna looking sad and glum. Staring at the floor, Min held back tears and had a moment of silence for those that had died.

He made his way down the mound casually and calmly, his hands deeply entrenched in the large pockets of his leather jacket as he did so. He needed to backtrack into the tall grass and past the now burning village. Luckily from where he had walked through it before, he had left himself a pathway from where his boots had trodden down the grass. As he walked down the path he looked to his left at the burning village, the tall grass that had once surrounded it and kept it hidden was all but burnt and now the burning village was open for all to see. He relied on looking through his left eye as upon his right eye socket was a telescopic device that allowed him to view great distances; it was hard to tell if the device replaced his eye or not but it certainly looked permanent. As his sharp left eye scanned over the remnants of a village it came into contact with the young girl and her wolf. His eyebrow raised a bit as he noticed the sadness upon her face, she seemed to be one of those types that cared for anyone, the mere thought made him grit his teeth a little in discomfort. He moved his focus back to the path he had made and decided to move on before he was noticed, of course it didn't help that some of the grass he had trodden on hadn't broken at the spine, so it had moved back up into it's upright position, causing a rustling to sound throughout the air as his boots crushed the grass once more.

As Min stood, she heard the sound of grass and quickly turned to the direction she heard it. Not sure about the exact direction, Min turned to Luna.

"Luna, go forward and locate that sound please."

Luna quickly ran ahead and Min followed as close as she could. Min then lost sight of Luna when she ran around a corner into a path made in the forest, her nose sniffing quietly continuously.

He had made it into the forest and it seemed as though he had escaped an interaction with the young girl he had spotted with her wolf, he preferred not to get into confrontations with anyone that he didn't know and trust, which was most people to him. His hands were deeply entrenched in his pockets and his hood was right up over his head as usual, stopping the falling dead leaves from the trees getting into his hair. He was intent on getting to his next destination and so he was walking at a rather quick pace. He wasn't aware of the followers he had suddenly gained, he was a little too focused on his next goal and how he would be putting it into action, he focused a little too much on it, almost completely leaving his guard down.

As Min turned the corner, Luna had almost reached a man in dark colours. Attempting to stop her, Min ran forward scooping Luna in her hands. However, she lost her balance and fell face first into the ground to the left of the man. Luna then released herself from Min's grip and sniffed her face, wondering whether she was ok.

He heard the sound of a soft thud on the ground just behind him to the left, his rather quick walking came to a halt the second he heard the sound. It seemed as though he was being followed or tracked, whatever one it was he wasn't too keen on it. Slowly he pivoted on the heel of his boot to the left, to see who exactly was following him. As he completely pivoted, his eyes came into view of the girl and her wolf. He raised his eyebrow a little in confusion, it was the same girl he saw sitting next to the burning village, he couldn't quite make out why exactly she was following him.

Usually he was a rather cold young man and didn't delve into the happenings of others, but he had grown a slightly more softer side from being with his love; at least he had towards that of the female variety. Slowly he walked over to the girl on the floor, extending his hand down to her as he bent down low enough for her to grab his hand.

"Are you alright Miss?" He said with a rather cool and calm tone of voice, his pronunciation proper and of high class.

Min gladly took the hand and stood up. The way this person talked seemed of high class. Perhaps if Min spoke the same way, he would not think badly of her. Curtsying, Min said,

"Thank you sir. I apologise for disturbing your walk but may I please ask you something? It's about a village some time back that has been burned down."

Min finished, hoping she did it right and that the man would not reject and just walk away.

Once she had taken his hand, he pulled her up with ease and almost instantly let go of her hand for her to straight herself out if need be. His hand returned to his jacket pocket, delving back inside deeply entrenching itself. He looked down at her, deciding not to just walk away as she intrigued him a little, he was more than anything interested in why she had been following him.

"You're welcome miss, I am rather interested in why you were following me , but it seems it was because your curiosity had gotten the better of you." He raised his eyebrow a little at the mention of the village and then went on speaking. "What about said village miss?"

"I was simply wondering whether you knew of what had occurred there."

Min said, realising that there was still blackness on her pale face from the smoke. Deciding to ignore it, Min just hoped the man would not notice it. Luna, who had been sitting down patiently while her friend and the stranger talked, was now roaming close by and always in view with Min, exploring the space around the group. As Min waited for the man's reply to her question, she slowly moved her fingers through her blue hair which were made into 2 ponytails with hair bands that seemed to float in the air around the hair. Then, checking her hand,she realised her hair had been darkened too.

His left eye had kept a track of the companion that the girl seemed to have, before he had returned his gaze back to her, he was slightly intrigued by her rather odd but interesting hair bands; he had seen anything quite like them and wondered how they operated before he brought his thoughts back to the question she had posed him with.

"What had occurred there? Well indeed I do know what happened to the village now aflame. You see the settlement was gaining power rather quickly in this region, with only a few other settlements scattered about the grasslands and all of them being rather reduced in size compared to the Nalbina settlement. It gave the Nalbinan's a rather large advantage, which they used in their favour to begin branching out to claim more land and grow stronger. If allowed to continue they would have eventually claimed the entire region of the grasslands, which would have led to conflicts and the rise to a new power. So to put it simply, I do know what happened to the settlement, because it was I that eradicated it." He said with a rather calm and cool tone, awaiting her response, he wasn't sure if she'd suddenly attack out of anger or perhaps back away, this certain individual he had known for but a few seconds.
