Abandoned Military Outpost

Post by Destinykil on Sun Jan 16, 2011 2:37 am

The abandoned military outpost once prospered during the old times until the war turned it into rubble. People usually wander in and out of it even though the signs around it say 'Keep OUT!' What was left of it provided shelter for those without homes but was constantly being cleaned out by military personnel.

Des' is seen walking towards the outpost and stops at the large fence. He notices since the last time he was here, they put a lock on the gates so the homeless didn't get in. His eyes shifted around to make sure no one was insight. Quickly he pulled out his small pistol and blew the lock off. Des pushed open the gates and walked inside the building.

A few minutes down some of the halls and he began to feel some nostalgia hit him like a ton of bricks. He remembers when he was kid visiting this place. Des stopped and entered a room. The floor was half gone revealing a large mound of dirt and debris. He squatted down and placed the book on the floor and flipped it open. After a few minutes of reading the table of contents his shifted a few pages further until he saw the title of the chapter, 'Beginner Earth Alchemy.' This is where he began really reading.

Des could only hope no one would enter this place.

She flexed her left arm as she walked down the sidewalk toward the abandoned military outpost. She had been tied up with work lately, so her trips down here had been few and far between of late. Feeling everything to be working properly, she shoved her hand in her trench coat pocket.

Arriving, she was surprised to find that the lock had been blown off the from gate. She knew some people used this place other than just her, so she shrugged, accepting it as an easier method of access than usual. As she made her way deeper into the area, she heard someone muttering ahead of her. She paused mid-step, then hurried to the side of the building, using rubble to give her access to a window. Peering inside, she saw a military man hunched over a book on the ground. She watched, curious as to what he was doing.

Des continued to read the book intently. Soon after, he drew a crude alchemy circle on the floor and read some more. After a few minutes he clapped his hands together smacked them on the circle. A small light radiated off the circle and dirt started to rise but quickly fell. Des slammed his fist on the floor and hunched his head.

"What am I doing wrong? This is exhausting, just once i'd like this damn alchemy to work!"

Des tossed the book at the wall and rose to his feet gripping his hair.

"Throwing books at walls doesn't do a whole lot of good," the woman called from high above him. She sat comfortably in the window, one leg dangling, and arm propped on the knee of her other.

"And I don't understand the fascination people have with clapping their hands to perform transmutations, either. It was those kids from a hundred years ago that started that and everyone followed suit, even though it does nothing to help."

She swung both legs over the edge and rested her forearms on her knees. "Care for a lesson?"

Des lifted his head up and gazed at her.

"You! How did you get in here? What are you doing here? This place is off limits. What did you just see? None of that matter,....yes I would indeed care for a lesson. This whole alchemy thing has me in a bind. My commander told me to learn some sort of alchemy otherwise i'd be booted from the unit."

He motioned with his hand for her to come closer. He walked over to the book and picked it back up bowing off the debris and dirt that fell on it.

The woman watched in silent amusement, then leaped from the window. She grabbed an old chain that hung from the ceiling and slid to the ground. She cracked the knuckles in her right hand and stood in front of the man, staring him in the face.

"First things first; I'm going to need to know your name, Mr. Military Man. Mine's Rei." She turned away from him without waiting for a response and inspected his transmutation circle. "Second, this one's a bit to advanced for a beginner. That is an older book so it may be behind in techniques."

She quickly drew a simple circle in the dirt and pointed at it. "This is what you need to start out with before moving into something specific like earth transmutation."

He eyed the circle she drew with ease and then grunted. "My name is Des. Lieutenant of the 34th regimen in the Military. Why would you sell me an old book? It doesn't matter, teach me."

"Why do you ask questions and then say that the answer doesn't matter, Lieutenant Des?" she said, eying him with minor annoyance. "And for your information, my store sells older books. Older books don't include the absolute basics of alchemy. I assumed you at least had those down when I sold you the book."

Rei crouched beside her transmutation circle and pointed again. "This is your starting point. The material is here; use the ground to create something. Imagine something simple in your mind and touch the circle."

Des grunted at Rei and squatted down next to her near the circle. He closed his eyes and breathed in deeply. When he opened his eyes he touched the circle and the dirt began to shift around.

The dirt started to form and by the time it was down, a small statue in armor stood before them both.

"Ha! Take that, look at that perfection. A Little statue man. I am a genius. Nah just playing. What else should I need to know Rei? You are now my teacher no if's and's or but's about it!"

He rose from his squatted position and crossed his arms over his chest laughing.

Rei watched in amusement as Des created his toy, but as he continued, her eyebrows drew closer together. She stood slowly and began pulling at the fingers on her left hand.

"Perfection? You think that's perfection? That simple toy armor?" she asked calmly, her fingers extending unnaturally in her hand. Before long her left hand appeared to be an empty glove of skin. "Perfection takes a long time to achieve, Lieutenant."

In a flash, Rei extended her left arm, her hand beside Des' head. A loud crash sounded and the wall on the far end of the room behind Des exploded into rubble. Rei withdrew her arm revealing an automail left hand, electricity crackling brightly around it.

"A long time to achieve."

Des ducked down and covered his head.

"What the hell are you trying to do kill me? Come on, that was pretty good for my first time. I'm like picasso with this stuff..."

Before he got to finish his sentence he began gazing at her automail. He rose up and eyes it ever so carefully.

"Automail huh? That is rare to see these days. Well for me at least. Pray tell, how did this happen?"

"It doesn't matter," she said, a smirk tugging at the corner of her lips as she stepped over the circles in the dirt. She turned to face him and crossed her arms. "As for your first time, it had very little to do with you. That circle is nearly perfect. Compare your attempts and my circle and you'll see quite a bit of difference."

She knelt and drew a plain circle in the ground and motioned for him to do the same. "Perfection takes a long time to achieve." She watched him a moment then added, "Unless you're really really good at drawing circles."

Des looked at her perplexed and knelt down beside the circle.

"I better not fail this time. Who needs circles anyways?"

With that being sad he took a few deep breaths and placed his hands on the circle. He concentrated but realized nothing was really happening.

"What gives? Does the circle have to be perfect or something? Throw me a bone here."

Des fell back onto his butt and sighed heavily knowing learning alchemy would be an near-impossible task.

Will had been wondering around town. Because of his curiosity, and his tendency not to think before acting, he decided to explore the Warehouse. He walked in and looked around

Rei rolled her eyes. "It's a plain circle, muscles-for-brains. Those aren't going to do you much good. Just practice drawing circles for now. The better your circles, the easier to perform alchemy."

She walked away, inspecting the ceiling as she waited for Des to begin drawing his circles. "This place needs to be fixed up. Too many practice sessions are gonna make it cave in at some point."
