Femslash 22: Castle
Bemmin first scene
//this is my first write a story. forgive me if my english is not good//
On the dry and cracked ground, he stepped his foots without question is it safe or not. He began to walk forward on the un-living ground, Leaving his vehicle behind. The sky is dark, its grumble like a storm cloud when its rain but only this sky doesn’t have any cloud. Soon, it released its thunder and hit the big stone beside him. The stone crashed into pieces, yet he walked still like nothing happened. Like he already used to the thunder. He doesn’t even bother the dark sky that block his vision.
The second thunder then released from above, then came another one. The ground start shaking whenever the storm fall to the ground. The more thunder attack, the bigger quake it’s made. Yet his pose is still the same, walking forward. As if it’s his daily experience to see storms coming from above trying to kill him.
He stopped, he sighed for a moment and looked up. In front of him, there is a big door with ancient carve as decoration. the door is made of stone but different with the on he saw on the way. The stone is dark gray color, it is dark because of the cloudy weather. He felt that he reached his destination. He began to pushed the door with his two hands. That door looks like it couldn’t be opened with just mere hand. Surprisingly, he can lift the door easily. Don’t know if the door was already broken or his hand is just strong.
He came in through the door. Only a few steps from the door before he stopped and look around. Everything inside has destroyed and unused. A disappointment sigh run from his helmet. He started walking forward again before he noticed a grumble sound from the door. The big door was closed slowly. Normal guy might hurry to walk out of the door and get out before they trapped in there, but not to him. He just stood there, watching the door slowly shut down it self and left him trapped inside. He whistled to the scene. He shrugged his elbow before he took of his helmet.
“Ahh… finally I can breathe…” he exhaled relieve
He turned around and began to walk forward. Crossing every damage in that building. That place was dark and desolated. There was no sound there but his footsteps. He turned his light so he won’t blinded by the dark. As he stepped his foot on the cold damaged floor, the sound of his footsteps echoing the room. He smirked by the echo and try to scream.
As the scream come out from his mouth, the big echo run from the room he walked to the next room. He laughed by it. doesn’t think about the consequences next. He jumped from broken pillar to another, then he starts singing.
“you’re way too…BEAUTIFUL GIRL!!~ that’s why it’ll never work~”
He is dancing and jumping around the pillar to make a good rhyme for his voice. His sing echoing the whole building. Being in the desolated place makes him bored and he’s trying to make it fun.
He grabbed one of the building’s ornament before he slides on the broken floor. he arrived at the big empty hall. He filled it with his singing voice. As he cannot remember the lyrics, he began mumbling the tone, and only sing the ref.
In front of the big empty hall, there’s a giant wrecked door. Not as big as the entrance, but still three times bigger than him. There are many carves on the door. Almost like the entrance but with different carves. It described a man with a big crown above. He might be known as the ruler of this place. Under him, there were queen, generation, knight, servants, and soldier. But the only face that is easily recognized is the king. The other is torn by cracks. The other side of the door there’s a big hole. It is as big as a grown man. It is made from the cracks. It makes him easily to go through without pushing it. he stopped his singing. The whole room becomes quiet. He gazed at the big door with smirk on his face. He slipped through the hole and went to the other side.
It’s an empty and dark corridor. The corridor is half sized the big hall. But there are no decoration on the wall or carves on the floor, yet cracks and plants filled the whole wall and some of them get to the floor. he grunted and bowed his shoulders. As if things couldn’t get any difficult. He continued his walk through the dark and long corridor.
He looked at his right arm. There is a holographic GPS map coming from his watch. The blue point in the map represent him, the little green road represented the corridor he walked on. He dragged the map while walking in the dark. The corridor will lead him to the room he wants. But along the way, the map sensed another point on the side of the corridor. He put his serious face, there are enemies waiting for him to block his way. He shut his map and fasten his walk. He prepared the weapons he needs to kill.
He turned on the light from his palm. The light is wide enough to brighten the front. He walked on the cracked floor. he payed attention to the walls. He felt no fear, but rather cautious. He’d done this so many times. he already prepared what’s coming.
The corridor was twisted, but there is no dead end. this is not a labyrinth, so he relieved. He would be more confused and annoyed if it were a labyrinth. But what makes him confused, is the corridor getting smaller and then it got bigger whenever he turned left or right. Its like the construction of this place is a retarded alien, like that there’s such a thing.
Suddenly the wall’s grunting. He turned back and point with his light wherever the grunt coming from. But there’s nothing. All he saw Is a cracked wall that slightly began to open, that’s what worries him. He did not dare to turned back again. He kept starring to the cracked wall, as if something would appear afterwards. But he was wrong.
A loud bang coming from behind. It broke the wall into pieces. Then, the one who broke the wall stood in the dark, it whimpered. He jumped, and then looked back. It was a dog with a silver iron helmet stuck in its head. Wait, how come there is a dog in space? And what’s with a helmet?
The dog wasn’t and ordinary dog. It is twice bigger than a hunt dog. Its skin is not cover in fur, but it covered with blue colored flesh. There are some pale gray skins attached to it. as if its real skin is slowly peeling and began to show the flesh. It steps forward to him as he walked backward. He realized that the dog was wearing a silver armor and there is a scabbard hanged around on his robe. He surprised and said “are you the guardians?”
Without hesitation, the dog jumped in front of him and took a bite of his right arm. He quickly shoved it but the dog wouldn’t let go. It dug it claws to his ankle, hope to break his right arm from his body. It tried to pull it away but it didn’t work, the arm stays still. Rather his body followed it. The dog became furious, it did it twice but it wouldn’t work. He took this chance to hit the dog’s head with a rock. The dog let go, his sleeve was torn.
The dog raised again and attacked him by jumped into him, it intended to bite his face. He pulled out his arms and dropped its aim. He fell down to the ground. The dog was beneath him, with his right arm inside its mouth. The dog growled against the bite. It tried to get closer to his face but his arm holding it back. His other arm was holding the dog’s shoulder to hamper its movement. The blood from its head dripped to his face. He couldn’t hold it, the dog’s breath and the unusual dripping blood disgusted him. Not to mention its breath like a dead body with feces and mint combined.
He took a chance to move his legs, adjust his leg’s position for the attack combo. When its done, he pushed his arm and legs then kicked the dog away from him. He’s expecting the dog would thrown off far, but he’s wrong. The dog may be thrown off, but it was not far from him. As the dog began to raise again, he took out his gun from the pocket and shoot the dog in the face.
The dog fell down, he relieved. He put his gun back to his pocket and turned around. Smiling happily while leaving the dead dog behind.
“You kidding me”
after several walks, he said. He heard a howl from behind. Turned around and found the dog is still alive. but not in a good way. The dog almost died; the howl was a will it has to do before it died. He ignored it and walked away.
A big door stood in front of him. Not like the other door he has seen. This door was perfectly still. No cracks, no hole, no plants, only a big door made of steel with a crystal drawn on it. he’s thinking how to open it. he realized this door need a key, but he doesn’t have it. this situation is getting worse, he hated it. he fiddled around his jacket’s pocket but he found nothing. Same goes from his trousers pocket. He has so many pockets in his suit but why he never found something that he needs in the moment? He should be more organized. he gave up, maybe it was left in the ship. He just needs to find another way. He looked closer to the door. he touched it and he noticed the door has low quality steel. He felt so lucky. He got an idea how to open it.
And by open it, he meant break it.
He took a step back and let out his right arm again. The right arm with the sleeve torn by an alien dog. There’s scratch on the right arm. the scratch should be in a lot of blood and colored red or brownish skin. But this right arm is colored silver. The scratch left out a blue sparkling flesh and white line. Some other scratch left a dark colored metal, like an aluminum that had been clawed. It isn’t an ordinary arm. it is a robotic arm.
He took out the glove and adjusted the place. He pointed the arm in front of the door. the arm changed into something cool. It wasn’t an arm anymore; it became a canon. The canon is very heavy like holding a big stone. That’s why he needs to hold it with his other hand. As he adjusted the right place to shoot, the cannon began to shine a light. The light is getting bigger. Then it left the canon and fly towards the door. it hit the door instantly. The light is hot as a sun, it made the door melted. The door broke and fell to the ground. It can’t stand if it’s melt. He blew the smoke in the canon and made it back into an arm again.
He walked toward the room. By this moment, he felt really glad. He saw a shiny orb up on the tower. It was being contained in a cage of glass. Glass? That looks pretty easy he though. That’s the thing he was looking for, the reason he come in this place. It looks like it was an important orb. The room for the orb was very decorative. There are so many paintings and carving on the wall. The floor is made of obsidian. And the roof was shape like a dome, it reflects the shiny orb. The tower is tall and has stairs, like we can climb the stairs and see the orb or take it. but to his knowledge about this abandoned place, a person who has a high position must sit or sleep in a higher place than the other. He knows it from the carving gate from before. But what is this orb actually? Is it their god?
He doesn’t care actually; he cares how much many he could have when he sells it.
As he began to walk toward the stairs, a loud grumble was heard from behind. He became cautious. He took his gun out and turn on the beam on his palm. From the dark corridor, he could see a bunch of animals with four legs running towards the room. Even id they’re so many, they didn’t step on each other. When they got closer to the entrance, he shocked. Those animals are the alien dog’s troops. They were sent by the leader to kill the intruder.
They enter the room and began to surround it. making him lose chance to run away. He climbed through the tower’s stairs. The dogs started to take the stairs and follow him. He turned back and took a shot from behind. Twice first shot wasn’t in luck, but the third shot hit the dog in the front. The fourth shot hit the dog behind it. he started to run fast and made it to the top, the dogs were lost behind him. He approached the glass and broke it with his robotic arm, as he suspected it was easy. Taking the orb was easy too, he though there will be more trap just to get the orb.
The dogs run fast; he was still on top. The floor under him had surrounded by many dogs, don’t forget the dogs that were catching after him. he was confused and panicked. He looked above the dome roof. He put out his robotic arm and scan the roof. What a coincidence, he didn’t realize he’s already on the ground. He took this golden chance to escape by calling his ship to come. It took only 3 or 5 minutes for the ship to come over. Yet the dogs were already on the top with him.
He pulled out his gun and start shooting all the alien dog’s troops. He put the orb in his jacket pocket and continue with the fight. All the dogs were furious as hell. They even attacked at many directions. He had to focus on the dogs in front of him and the dog attacks from behind him. he used his beam and slayed the dog above him. he attacked the dogs while stepping back and climbed on the orb’s place. The dogs already surround him in a circle. he had no escape now. He just had to wait. He put o his helmet again to prevent breathless air from the ground.
The roof dome had collapsed. It shocks him and the dogs. They were looking up and saw a big medium sized spaceship above them. The under door opened. He’s really relieved. The spaceship lending a rope for him to cling on. He clinged to the robe and it’s being pulled by the ship. Say good bye to the dogs before go up to his ship. Every alien dog in there were afraid. They were afraid they will be attacked by the giant spaceship. But one dog wouldn’t give up. It bit his jacket and pulled him down. He got pulled to back to the orb’s room. As he looking down the one who bite him, he realized that was the dog that he killed the first time. How come he still alive? He tried to shove the dog’s bite from his jacket.
“Holy shit, you can talk”
“Do you know how much important that orb to us??”
“It’s your source of life?”
“IT IS OUR GIFT FROM GOD!!! IT KEEPS US ALIVE”
“I knew it” he answered with casual face
“I swear, I will remember your face. I will remember your name. I will find you dead or alive. you don’t want to mess with the guardian of —–”
He had enough with wisdom chit chat. He finally shoved his jacket from the dog. Then he flew to the spaceship. The dog barked and climbed as high as it can to reach him. but it would never work, he’s already far from the ground. all the dogs were barking and climbed on top of the tower. It’s like they beg him to give them back the orb
“If you wanna remember me, The name’s Bemmin. Try to find me after your death.” Then he got in to his spaceship. The dog leader who was talking froze to death. The other dog troops running around try to climb on to the top. They were still chasing after Bemmin who stole their orb. But the leader knows their death will come and there is no chance that could safe them. That’s why it just stood there with a pale face.
Bemmin relieved and took off his jacket as he arrived at his ship. He took of his helmet and shoes. He did not forget to take of his guns and other weapon. He scanned the orb on his computer. He changed his adventure shirt into casual shirt then put the old one to the ship laundry. Bemmin’s casual clothes are only a thin t-shirt and shorts with Nike logo on it. he sat on the chair while waiting the scan to be complete.
The Lyrisa Orb. Owned by Lyricia planet. The orb belongs to their king or as they called it ‘god’, Pento. He treasured the orb and told his citizen to worshipped the orb for him. saying that the orb keeps them alive. however, chaos happened 30 years ago. A war declaration from Edbo…… (*shutting video)
Bemmin sigh at the story of the orb. He checked the prize of the orb in many places. He’s looking for the place that offer the highest money for that orb. Such a collector from any place would buy things like this and hang it as collection. He found one place in planet Boldembi, a collector wanted to buy it for the prize of 5000 Korhel. Korhel is a money currency that used in many planets, like a dollar. Bemmin felt lucky. He set a direction to Boldembi immediately.
As the ship on the way to Boldembi, Bemmin looked out of his window. The view of space that often dark. But if he passed by a planet or a galaxy, it become the most beautiful scene he had ever scene. It’s been 5 years since he starts traveling the whole galaxy. What more adventure will he got?
You Are Too Old For This. Too Young For That!
Age is often an issue in our society. It is not uncommon to be judged just by age alone with the verdict coming in the form of statements such as “Sorry you are too young, come back in a few years’ time when you have gained more experience” or “Sorry you are too old, we cannot take the risk of taking on board someone of your age.” Age should not matter. Being young or being old should not…
This Yellow Rose of Texas is Still Blooming
Look at my little yellow rose bush that decided to bloom in the freezing cold of winter. It spoke of hope and “Spring is on its way!” But it was teasing me. I took this photo just before the Arctic blast swept through. All my excitement of a “change” never looked like last week’s days right when I was moving to Austin. The movers were scheduled to move me on the 15th, but the snow, ice, freezing…
Funny how the most competent of adventurers can’t do even the most basic of tasks.
David Tennant i feel we need to talk about my ongoing affair with adventurer Simon Reeve,You’ll like him,he’s friends with michael palin who you have met in staged so in a way your already friends as he’s part of your friend circle now.So where still okay? Good!!! p.s i’m sleeping with Simon tonight be a babe and sleep on the sofa.👍
It sounds like someone sitting you down and telling you a story. A story about a heroic adventurer venturing through snow covered pine forests, frozen lakes and quiet streets lined with stone houses. In the music you can almost hear the proud yet graceful strides of a heroic adventurer. It sounds very warm and triumphant as if to represent the character’s love for his people and his passion for going on a journey. The orchestral tutti is so grandiose, kind of like a castle being surrounded with fireworks upon the hero’s return and this has to be one of my favourite Violin Concertos.

Okay we’d be lying if we didn’t admit there’s a fair few things were missing right now. Sunshine and farther flung adventures are almost top of the list! There’s something about reaching the top, and rummaging through your pack to find whatever snacks you took with you and just sitting there taking in the view! 📸 - @joshosmondfilm .— 🌿🌲 Sustainable Adventure Products + FREE UK Shipping 🇬🇧🌎 JOIN THE CLUB.
Another #fellfriday from ourselves, another throwback and showing the majesty of the south!
This time is Cheddar gorge, again another hugely touristy destination, but caught at the right time in the right conditions it’s insanely peaceful with a few goats for company!
“Cheddar Gorge is a limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills, near the village of Cheddar, Somerset, England. The gorge is the site of the Cheddar show caves, where Britain’s oldest complete human skeleton, Cheddar Man, estimated to be 9,000 years old, was found in 1903.
The maximum depth of the gorge is 137 m (449 ft),with a near-vertical cliff-face to the south”

Where has that awesome sunshine come from? (I mean we obviously know the source…)
Surely it’s not long until spring now! Winters fun and all but the sun makes everything better right?
