Rise of the Paladin

By Alan Rife

Romance / Fantasy

Prologue

I woke with a gasp sitting up in a pile of ashes. My groin was struck by something rock hard pain shot through me. Anger shot through me I tackled the culprit pinning wrists above someone's head.

I came face to face with Victoria of the twilight universe. The charred remains of the ballet studio surrounded us. I looked around pressing my right hand to her collarbone with her wrists in my left. She squirmed under me as I tried to remember what happened.

Julia's death flashed through my mind, "Could you get off of me?" Victoria asked, had a cold heart broken underlying tone.

My emotionless outer shell finally shattered like glass I crumpled crying like a baby. I couldn't stop it as I cried so hard my entire body shook. To my surprise a pair of cold arms embraced me.

A searing pain swept through me but I didn't care as I let myself be held.

"Thank you." I prayed, as I lost consciousness.

Victoria looked at me for a moment I saw Julia again as the Sun came up behind her.

I touched her cheek pulling the back of her head in kissing her. Part of my mind knew it wasn't Julia the rest didn't care.

"If heaven is listening please find someone else as your Paladin. I do not wish to have this burden anymore." I said, a peace fell over me.


I woke on a bed with a gasp, finding a feminine body pressed against me. Panicking I scrambled away only to fall of a bed smacking my head on an end table.

I clutched my head rolling away, "Is something wrong?" Victoria asked.

"I made a vow never to do bedroom couple stuff until after marriage." I said, curled up on the floor clutching my head in pain.

Blonde bangs fell in my face as bright red sideburns fell in my face the rest of my hair was brown.

"So, you are the successor of Entei." Victoria said, "That explains the physical strength."

I saw thick gold bands around my wrists and ankles.

Heat flooded my face, I smiled, "Let's talk to Alice Cullen." I said.

"What for?" She asked.

"Because I am extremely selfish and I want you all to myself." I said, sighing pulling of my dog tags.

I removed the wire gold ring dropping to one knee.

"Buying a ring is easy, I made this ring with own hands. We've both lost the one that we loved most. But it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Just as no one is perfect, I am far from it. I promise to accept you for who you are, all I ask is that you accept me, with all of my...flaws." I said, "Will you..."

"Romanov." She said, covering my mouth, "My name is Anastasia Romanov."

"My name is Alan Rife." I said, "Will you marry me?"

She smiled, "Yes." She said.

I slipped the ring onto her finger, a black aura appeared around the ring. Victoria's hair whipped on fire she caught her hair looking openly embarrassed. Unnoticed by either of us the black aura vanished.

I raised my hand a plume of azure flame appeared in my hand, "There is no need for secrets with me." I said.

She hugged me burying her face in my chest, "I'm the successor of Moltres." Victoria said. A blinding light flashed Victoria was turned to ash before the light. The Overlord of overlords glared at me thrusting a sword at me.

"You have a duty as the Grand Paladin to...."

I took the sword swinging it around impaling myself through the heart an azure blue burning sphere split in half shattering. The person was struck by a shaft of light he was ensnared by shining chains with Overwhelming force. A cloaked figure with a hood concealing his face. I sensed the hood was to protect me not to hide who he was.

He pulled the sword from my chest taking the orb with it. I gasped as I started to fade from existence.

The overlord waved a hand, a bright green Mewtwo and Lugia appeared.

“Take our power before you go.” Lugia said before vanishing into me in a tidal wave of silver energy merging with me my tattoos faded away completely.

I smiled as a burden I had for so long vanished from me. The Overlord of Overlords considered for a moment before then crushed the orb, returning it to the other guy.

“Before you go, Alan...my son, Teresa of the faint smile from my peerage I place her under your command.” He said, Julia and my twin sister, Primula, Isaribi, a blonde haired dark elf, both walked forward. Except my sister handed me the Biggoron sword on her back as there was a blinding flash of the purest white light. A blonde elf woman with a deformed black gauntlet of a right arm collapsing into the other guy’s arms shocking him.

The black gauntlet lashed out on its own swinging at Julia. Julia caught it with a hand as the Triforce of Power shined on the back of her right hand. The gauntlet sweated profusely before the Infinite point seal swept over it.

“The curse all my children share with me.” The other man said.

She slapped him, "No that's just you." She said.

I kissed Julia passing my life force, everything I had into her.

I felt something slip from me, as her hair turned silver. My thread of life snapped, I pulled back coughing up blood, “I know, I gave it mine.” I said, my life slipped from my fingers as I collapsed, my body was heavy, a peace fell over me.

A dark haired woman appeared, "Rest now for thy task is not yet finished.

"Nythelia!" The other man rushed her arms open wide.

She back handed him, a crimson cord tangled him. I drew the last of my strength touching his ankle under with my index finger placing the infinite point seal on his human form. He gasped as he fell backward exploding into a huge black dragon. My life faded away as I made the seal permanent paying with my life.

Julia was gone, I couldn't sense her life force anywhere.
