Chained

Part 1: Herself


Through a glimpse of a window, she saw a girl chained heavily in midair, with the ends of the dark purple chains planted in the many cracks of time.

Who she was looking at, was herself. How did she know that? The blond hair and the way she was chained told her everything. That was without a doubt, herself. All her fingers and toes were chained, totaling to twenty chains. She is a powerful person herself and she knew that she wasn't to be taken lightly. But still, she could have been dead, like her friends. 

The window she looked through was no ordinary window. It was a window she had created by breaking off a tiny shard of a chain that was planted in one of the cracks of time she was jailed in. 

She reminded herself everyday that her name is Cynthia White, one of the members of the Six Sorcery Squad. She told herself that she will survive no matter what and fight as hard as she can to escape her jail.

However, things are not as simple as she thought things are. That is because she has found out that she has been jailed in cracks of time because she does not recognize the place at all nor has she ever read of a place like the one she is in. Cynthia closed the magical window.

The city she is in is way too fancy. Everything is smooth in that world and the civilians are extremely powerful wizards and witches. She hasn't faced any of them yet, but she is scheduled to face one in an hour. In front of her in the distance in the center of the city is a giant chain ever so thick hanging from the sky. The ends of the chain is an arrow tip embedded into the ground looking wickedly sharp. They are the same chains as the ones that chained her up. There is no doubt that the giant chain is the same one that chained her physical body. 

Suddenly, Cynthia heard someone knock on the door of her room. Cynthia quickly went to the door and opened it. It was one of the wizard officials who would be watching the battle.

"Miss Cynthia, are you ready to go?" the wizard official asked.

Cynthia nodded.


"Ladies and gentlemen, may we present the legendary witch Ruby Merio!" the announcer shouted.

Cynthia watched as a girl walked out of a stadium opening and walked into the round barren stadium field. 

"And our newest contestant, Cynthia White!" the announcer shouted, "The witch that fell out of the sky!"

Behind Cynthia was the wizard official.

"Good luck!" he whispered. Cynthia gave him a small smile.

"Thanks! I really need it!" Cynthia answered.

Cynthia walked out smiling. For some reason, the tension in the stadium scared her. There were no kind eyes in store for her everywhere she looked in the stadium.

Ruby Merio had a kind look in her eyes.

"Cynthia White, right?" Ruby asked, "For some reason, I remember reading that name in a mythology book. She disappeared from Planet Elemente when she was a kid. But of course, you can't be the Cynthia White in history books. If Cynthia White was alive right now, she would be in her fifties right now."

"It is funny, because I had weird things going on after I fought Darkness." Cynthia told Ruby, "I find myself falling from the sky right afterwards in this world. I also find that the wizards and witches here are extremely powerful. I want to experience this opportunity I am given here. Please don't go easy on me."

Ruby smiled.

"You certainly have manners." Ruby told Cynthia, "I was born without the love of my parents sadly. They died from Darkness."

Cynthia realized who Ruby was. She is the daughter of Dicup Treah and Mary Merio. 

"Your father and mother, I don't suppose they are Dicup Treah and Mary Merio, can they?" Cynthia asked. 

"How did you know?" Ruby demanded.

"Ah." Cynthia muttered, "I am in the future. It must be. I am Cynthia White, of the Six Sorcery Squad. I will show you my prowess and show you my knowledge from Cadence!"

"The Magicist who protects time?" Ruby asked in horror, "I'm ramped up!"

Cynthia gave Ruby a small smile. Ruby released a lightning bolt from her pinky. Cynthia deflected it with her mind. The crowd gasped.

"That was my fastest lightning bolt!" Ruby shouted, "You must be Cynthia White then."

"I thought your generation is extremely strong!" Cynthia told Ruby.

"Of course our generation is strong! We know way more than the wizards and witches back then." Ruby told Cynthia.

"Your fundamental in Electromancy is weak!" Cynthia criticized Ruby, "As strong as your lightning bolt may be listed theoretically, sure, you can take down opponents easily, but your fundamental in Electromancy is so weak that I can easily deflect that move of yours. Let me show you my version of what I learnt from just reading a book! This is based on in depth practicing of Electromancy!"

Cynthia aimed her pinky at Ruby and fired a high speed electric arrow that exploded on contact with Ruby who was clearly cooked. Her face was smoke black with her hair no longer possessing attractive forces to each other. She certainly did not look as pretty as she did before the battle.

Cynthia pointed to the purple chain far away from them.

"That chain belongs to Darkness." Cynthia told Ruby loudly, "And it leads to my physical body! She used twenty chains to imprison my physical being! I cannot let your world hold me down! With all my power, I will remove that purple chain someday and the rest of the nineteen chains that imprison me!"

With that, Cynthia spat mist out of her mouth and obliterated the field, leaving Ruby defeated. She patted her hands clean and walked out of the stadium like she would do for any other ordinary battle.
