Chapter 1: Mitch Erebus

Looking around the room Mitch watched everyone with his sky blue eyes assessing who was to be attending their first year at Beacon Academy like he was. This academy was meant to train future hunters to combat Grimm which were dark creatures that emerged to cause chaos and destruction throughout the world. In order to be accepted you had to have incredible skills and even then it wasn't easy to graduate or to get through the years.

"Long as no one talks to me I'll be fine" he grumbled kicking his feet up as the wind from the open window blew his spiky blonde hair back. A young bright gold haired girl standing with another black one was staring at him as he grunted hoping she wouldn't come and talk to him, it seemed a lot of girls were looking at him because apparently he was what they called dark, mysterious and attractive.

Besides his blonde hair and blue eyes he had a fairly athletic physique from all his years of training and a few scars up his arms from fighting wild Grimm as part of his training. He wore a black tank top with a leather jacket and black jeans with a pair of combat boots, sitting beside him propped against the wall was his weapon Ashura a long slender katana with a black spiky guard and handle covered in flames while a giant red glowing stone was embedded in the middle, the blade even though sheathed glowed a dull orange, yellow and red like a raging fire.

"That guy is pretty attractive in a dark mysterious sort of way" the gold haired girl said as black haired girl rolled her eyes "Yang you're always noticing these type of guys" "What aren't you interested in guys Ruby?" Yang Xiao Long was the older sister of Ruby Rose the girl standing next to her and they both were attending the academy together despite Ruby being 2 years younger.

"I bet you'll go and talk to him now and he'll love you since you're gorgeous" Ruby was right Yang had bright golden hair that hung down to her backside with lilac coloured eyes and a curvaceous figure, she wore a tan vest with puffy sleeves and a black while underneath was a yellow cleavage and midriff baring shirt with a black burning heart on the breast. A thick brown belt was wrapped around her waist with black shorts that stopped on her upper thighs while a white veil hung down the back. On her feet she had brown knee high platform boots with orange socks. On her hands she had black fingerless gloves and a golden sort of metal guard around them. "Ah duh of course I'm going to talk to him" she said and started walking over as the boy opened one of his blue eyes and stared up at her.

"Hey there since we'll be attending the academy together I thought I'd introduce myself I'm Yang" she said holding her hand out as Mitch continued to look her up and down, she was incredibly attractive and reminded him of someone but he pushed that thought aside and decided to be nice "Hey I'm Mitch". Upon hearing him speak to her the girl seemed to become more excited as she leant against the wall next to him "So why are you attending the academy?" "I've been fighting all my life and I kind of get a kick from it so I figured coming here would help me find strong opponents" "Really you didn't graduate or anything?" "Not really I was found slaying Grimm creatures in the forest and apparently the people worked at the academy and sent me along".

"OH MY GOD IS THAT YOU WEAPON" a voice shrieked as Mitch looked across to see the black haired girl staring down at his katana nearly squealing at the sight. "Hey Ruby back off I was busy sis" "Huh they're sisters?" Mitch thought staring at the girl called Ruby.

She looked nothing like her sister, her black hair had streaks of red through it and stopped at her neck while she had silver eyes and wore a black blouse and skirt which had red trimmings. Underneath she had black leggings and black boots with red markings on them, a belt was fashioned around waist and a bright red hood was flowing out behind her.

"Ermm yeah that's my weapon it's called Flaming Wolf or I simply nicknamed it Ashura" he said as Ruby picked it up and unsheathed the blade staring at it in awe as Yang grabbed her sister "HEY YOU DON'T JUST GRAB PEOPLES WEAPONS IT'S RUDE" "Nah it's fine let her have a look, I'm fine Ashura wouldn't mind it" Ruby and Yang stared at him confused as he decided to elaborate "This weapon has been passed down from my family for generations and it's said the spirit of a fire wolf was sealed inside of course that's only if you believe in mythical tales" "THAT'S SO COOL I love seeing unique weapons especially ancient hand held ones".

The plane came to a grinding halt as a voice announced their arrival at the academy "Well looks like we're here I suppose we should head off and meet up for the welcoming ceremony" Ruby said as Yang looked down at Mitch "I guess we'll see you later then" "Yeah perhaps we will" he said smiling as she lingered for a moment longer and then took off after her sister. Sighing Mitch continued to lay in his seat for awhile longer "Here I was hoping people wouldn't try to be friendly with me".

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.
