Heroes: Into a New World

By FlyingSnorlax

Fantasy / Adventure

Prolouge Part 1

It wasn't everyday he was called in for a quest by Grendel the Really Old. In fact, it was never, other than looking into the Onyx Dragons. But Evan was grateful to the old man for helping him, so he didn't mind popping by to do what he can to ease the old man's mind. When he entered the large library in Ellinia, the man smiled at him. "Evan! It is good to see you again. How have you been under the tutorship of the rest of the heroes?"

Evan smiled at the old man, patting Mir on the head. "It has been... eventful, sir. The knowledge they possess is really vast. Luminous teaches me how to hone my magic, though under the eye of Phantom in case he loses control. Phantom teaches me about the magic and how it works, well, in theory. Aran takes me and Mercedes for combat training, though Phantom doesn't appreciate his home being destroyed." He replied truthfully. Evan had been living on the Lumiere as of the moment, along with Phantom. Luminous did pop by often, though, only if Evan requested him to do so. And even then, Phantom insisted on being there. Mainly to watch him, but Phantom never passed up a chance to tease Luminous. But never mind that. Why did Grendel call him for?

He looked up at Grendel, puzzled, while the oldan chuckled. "Nothing about Dragons this time, Evan. In fact, I do believe you might enjoy this. After all, your own youth was stolen in order for you to train your abilities."

Evan immediately raised his hands, denying vehemently about losing his youth, that he was happy to do such a thing. If it weren't for this, he would still be a farm boy. Grendel laughed, a deep rich laugh for an old man. He shook his head. "Come now, Evan. I'll transport you there."

The moment he blinked, Evan and Grendel were in a house. Evan rubbed his eyes, recognizing the inside as the interior of a mushroom house in Henesys. He looked around, before noticing an extremely scared young man clad in a sweater and scarf. Grendel sighed deeply, before introducing the both of them. "Evan, this is one of my apprentice, Elwin. He is the Manipulator of Portals. I didn't think he would pull open a portal to an alternate universe. Elwin, please meet Evan, one of the Heroes." Evan smiled, while Mir nudged Elwin, who appeared fascinated at the appearance of the dragon. Evan cleared his throat to capture Elwin's attention, before asking his questions.

"Uh, Mr. Elwin, what happened?"

"Elwin would do, Evan. Well, I... might have opened a portal to an alternate universe, causing this... this person from there to enter, while our dark magic enters their universe. I don't know how, but traces of our world is entering their world. I can't close the portal just yet, not until he goes in. You see that person outside over there? Yeah. I was.. hoping that Grendel would not appear before help came and allowed me to close the portal, but I guess not." Elwin fiddled with his scarf nervously. Evan nodded, before smiling apologetically. Had it been him, Evan would have just trembled in the corner. Mir nuzzled the man, and the door flew open.

"Tch, that's why I'm saying, just toss him in and be done with it! Just because he likes the world doesn't mean he- oh, Evan, what are you doing here?"

In the doorway stood the rest of the Heroes.

Evan blinked again, while Mir tilted his head. "Master, what are they doing here? I thought this was a quest from Grendel?" Evan shrugged. Luminous merely shook his head and opened his mouth to explain when Phantom butted in. As he spoke, a visible vein appeared on Luminous' head. Aran gave him a pat on the back to calm him down. According to Phantom, he and Luminous had been investigating a sudden magic disruption. Well, Luminous had been, while Phantom merely tagged along just in case it was the Black Mage wanting to absorb Luminous ("For the last time, stupid thief, I do not require your protection nor your companionship!"). Mercedes and Aran had came to Henesys to meet Athena Pierce, but was drawn by the magic disruption as well. Shade had been shopping in Henesys, but upon seeing the rest entering the house, followed oit of curiosity. All five of them came in, and was told about the situation by Elwin. Then, they tried to get the person to go back, but to no avail. Force was prohibited because Elwin didn't want to hurt the other person.

They sighed, before Elwin spoke up. "I have an idea, but I'm not sure if it would work. One of you will have to go in as the transfer student."

The Heroes gaped at him, before they started to discuss animatedly. A new world to explore, a break away from the Black Mage. It seemed alright, and even then, they were preventing the Black Mage's influence in the other world. But who would go in?

Phantom spoke first, as always. "Well, a new world might have new jewels to pick up along the way, as well as more beautiful items alongside." Luminous growled at him.

"That's all you can think about, petty thief? Think of others for once, you stealing their jewels, and leaving the magic influence behind? Only you would do such a thing." Mercedes sighed and rolled her eyes.

"Of course it's not only that. Think of the plants and animals there. The influence of the Black Mage is still around, they might corrupt the flora there, leading the monsters appearing."

"It's an entire new world! Plus, you can't possibly deny any of us the chance to explore it! And if we block the Black Mage's plans, that would result in him growing weaker, right?!"

The unspoken demand that they each enter was clear in the air to Evan. He sighed and rubbed his head. "Since all of us have a goal there, w-why don't we all go in?" He spoke up over the noise, which immediately stopped. The five Heroes stared at him, before Phantom cried out. "I have to be stuck with Stuffy Pants in another world again?!" Luminous turned and grabbed Phantom by the collar, his red eye flaring up. Evan quickly pushed the two apart, before sighing. How did the Dragon Master of the past deal with this? Shade sighed and patted Evan on the back. Evan smiled gratefully at him. Shade's real name was Eunwol, but no one called him by that name anymore.

"If that's the case, that's where I come in."

A female voice rang loud and clear. Grendel beckoned in the woman, who stood over all of them. "My name is Lily, and I'm the master of Manipulation. I can get all of you in in one piece. I studied alongside Elwin, who clearly made another blunder. One condition. All of you have to listen to what we say, or the fate of both worlds would be in jeopardy." Another student of Grendel? Oh. Lily.

"Anyway, here, takes these." Elwin hurriedly pushed a couple of devices into their hands. "Handphones. For contacting us. My contact is already in it, as well as Lily's. So go, hurry! School is about to start!"

The Heroes immediately rushed into the closet, squeezing through the hole. Eager to get away from the pressure of the Black Mage, the Heroes escapes into another world, far different from their own.
