"So I understand this correctly now? Ranbu was in your sword, has taken up residence in your body, turned inside out your hair and your personality, something has to be cleared in a moment of compassion again the most part and is then up to the moment when your whole clan one about a bunch of Stone statues were massacred by the sword again remained since then to have a huge presence? "asked Surasshus Broke father once told his son of the straight combined.
He nodded and then told also of his training with Ranbu. Broke to wonder just nodded proudly, while the mother looked Surasshus two erfreutem with a face. They had the body shape itself, Ranbu was about a foot taller than Surasshu and also had the long hair like he did, but otherwise resembled the two fairly.
"Wanted it's almost like you have finally the brother whom you have all these years Surasshu." She said jokingly. At present, the two red, which brought Surasshus father laugh. "You have you right again, Diana has finally .. our son, a brother," agreed Broke her. The two boys looked at each other, began to smile and then burst into loud laughter.
"Oh, just forget. We wanted to Aussa", it was Surasshu again. "Well then you should go both times, finally allowed to wait for a lady." Said Broke. The two nodded and went on their way.
The path to the gun shop of Aussas Ranbu father saw for the first time the home of Surasshu. "It's so ... quiet and peaceful here." He said. "Yes, this city is near the top. In addition, it is quite cold here,. So I want to say that to give up most of bandits, poachers and hostile armies there about half way because it's become so cold that, "replied Surasshu.
"Obvious. Then I wonder why you and other people in this area is not cold? "Asked again Ranbu. "People have been born in this area. In addition, some of us were baptized in the cold water. "Said Surasshu slightly trembling. "You were baptized cold, right?" Asked him Ranbu crooked grin. "Oh, let me alone." Said Surasshu played angry.
The two then went on and reached the shop of Aussas father. They entered it and looked like her friend Aussa. Although it took a bit, but then they found they read on the second floor on an old chair a book. She was so engrossed in this book that they both did not even notice when they were half a meter in front of her.
Surasshu cleared his throat, after which the two Aussa then looked startled. "Oh, I'm sorry you two, I was completely absorbed in this book." She apologized and put the book down. Surasshu brief look at the book and asked what it was for a book. "May I say." She answered shortly. "Why is that?" Asked Ranbu.
"Maybe because this is my diary?" She asked. The two nodded naturally and not hooked to continue. The two inquired about the conversation between statements and their father, because she was at that time went along without his permission with Surasshu. "Well, he has snapped at me but in the end he just said" as long as you are well everything is fine ".," She said, sighing slightly.
"Glad to have the two of you stand." Said Surasshu pleased. "Thank you. Come, let us go train. "Said Aussa.
Trained about two hundred yards in front of the three Ilé in the vicinity of a nearly frozen river, and the Surasshu Ranbu but mostly departed to continue their training in the freezing water. Although Surasshu frierte than the cold water flowed around his legs, but the hard training with Ranbu the heat quickly brought back. Aussa saw the two and sighed occasionally.
Since she was home again, and here there was almost no earth, she could not use their spells and therefore very little training. As Ranbu noticed this at some point he stopped the practice and asked what was going on. "I can hardly use a spell up here. I was so used to the green that I had forgotten the very deep snow. "She said sadly.
"Can you spell the no snow?" Ranbu asked what Aussa answered with a shake of the head. "I am Earth Mage: my entire magic refers to the earth and nothing else." She added. "Earth do you say? Then I ask you once, what do you know of the four elements fire, water, earth and air. "Said Ranbu. "They are the four basic forces of the world." Aussa answered shortly.
"You're right, but do you know how the four elements are divided among themselves and how they're all connected as one unit?" "Divided yet united with each other?" Asked Surasshu Ranbu. "Each element has an important role, let's say that would be four and a body, well then the earth would be the body, water his blood that fires his soul, and the wind is its voice."
"And what exactly does that?" Asked Aussa easily confused. "This one even if you can control only one element of birth, the others can also check, but only if you are willing to follow this path to go the way of the shaman." "The Way of the Shaman," asked him Aussa . "I can imagine that you have not heard of it, after all, this is a dying form of magic over time.
As far as I know there are only four shamans, each of which prefers to live in exile. "Said Ranbu. "And why are you telling me then that?" Aussa asked again. "Because you just like Hiita, Wynn and Eria have the talent to become a shaman." Ranbu answered immediately. The two looked at him surprised. Aussa would like Hiita, Wynn and Eria to be the talent to be a shaman?
Especially when Hiita they could hardly imagine it, but then called Ranbu the reason: "Each of you is connected to an element that also means that you could perceive the other elements, if you wanted. Do not think that it is limited to one element since, in fact it is so that you can access the four elements and each of its other forms, if you are ready to cope with since that ability. "
"So you think I could control the water if I wanted?" Asked Aussa him. He nodded. "I can show you the way, you have to leave him but even that is a prerequisite for the power of the shaman.", He said, handing Aussa hand. At first she hesitated, but then she took his hand. Ranbu laughed and shook her hand. "Well then let's start it right with your training, shaman!"
While watching Surasshu Ranbu Aussas began to train. "Remember, I can show you just the way you have to go it yourself," he repeated once more. "I know, I know. Let's get started. "Said Aussa and clasped fists. "Well then, let's start with the fact that you're turning the snow into a raging storm." Said Ranbu.
"Equal difficult so what?" Surasshu asked, startled. "Compared to what a fully trained shaman can be something just a little shindig!" Said Ranbu. Surasshus eyes widened at this answer. Aussa stood in the snow, his eyes closed. She tried to concentrate, but in this moment, hundreds if not thousands of buzzing around in her mind of thoughts.
She had taken quite a rush and without thinking of a way where they did not know how long and difficult it becomes. Then again there were other thoughts, other voices said that it was a good idea to take this course. She began to tremble, while Ranbu Surasshu and could only watch her.
Suddenly, she collapsed and fell to the ground. Surasshu ran to her, but Ranbu stopped him. "You must get through this alone, we can not stand it here. This is their test. "He said. Surasshu grudgingly read from his purpose and sat down on the floor, his eyes fixed on Aussa.
Aussa opened her eyes. Before her was a dark path from which they could see only a few meters, which was in the end. "I can not see the end." She said softly. "If you saw the end, then you would go the way?" She asked a male voice. She looked around and saw a person in the dark, her face barely visible.
"You look young, too young if you ask me." Said another voice, much deeper than the other. "A little girl that wants to go the path of the shaman? Do not you think that this will be too great a burden for you? "Asked a new voice, a little younger than the previous one. "Gentlemen, now is a good one!" Said another female voice in the round.
"This girl does not look as if they would give up their right to be a problem in your way. Moreover, it is connected with an element of the earth. So she has a strong backbone and a big heart. " Who are you may I ask? "Aussa asked the dark. "We are the last four shamans." Replied the first voice again.
"I see, and what are you doing here in my head?" She asked again. "You go look at your path. Of course, we remain silent and say nothing here, unless you want it. "Replied the woman. "I would have liked when I hear my own voice in my head, thank you." Aussa said, nodding. "Agreed." Replied the woman. "We wish you much success on your path, Aussa."
"Thank you.", Thanking Aussa themselves. She did her first step down before her befinde be traveled and woke up again.
She stood up, stretched his arms high into the air, then down again. You just shut your left arm as she turned in the right always at a constant speed. In the end, the snow began to move in ever larger quantities. Then the snow grew higher and higher until it becomes an ever more rapidly rotating hurricane changed.
She put her hands together, exhaled slowly and read the snow falling again slowly. "You did it." Surasshu said quietly. Aussa smiled, turned to them and shouted: "My path as a shaman has just begun!"
In the evening after the sumptuous dinner and went Surasshu Ranbu back in Surasshus room. "I'll go bathe first.", Surasshu said suddenly, and left the room. Ranbu said nothing and remained in the room. "Surasshu, you're really one." He said, and laughed shortly. Although some time had passed since he had come from the sword, yet he still felt that connection, which emanated from Surasshu his weapon.
He still felt the warmth of his hands on his arms, his determination to flow through them directly into him. With this reminder he escaped another short laugh. Then he sniffed and said he could tolerate even a small bathroom. He got up, went to the bathroom and opened the door. "What ... what are you doing here Ranbu??" Asked Surasshu startled.
Lying in the bathtub, it was visibly uncomfortable that Ranbu saw him so. He in turn tried to calm him in which he said: ". Reg from you, I love you often enough seen naked," with a red face and with the idea that Ranbu could have watched him in Coral port the shower, he screamed again so loud that Ranbu ran from the bathroom.
"What did he do?" Ranbu asked in amazement, shrugged his shoulders and went back into the room. Immersed in water up to the eyes Surasshu grumbled: "He has not put much all intrude here just like that! Besides, what does he mean by "I have you often been seen enough naked"? "
A little later after this incident Surasshu came with a towel around his hip back into the room. He looked at Ranbu angry, went to the closet and took out of there a new boxer shorts. This, he moved so quickly, that could throw Ranbu not even looking at his naked body. Then he sat down on the bed and asked, "And now, again: you've seen me naked?"
Ranbu nodded and answered. "When I was in your sword, I am occasionally times you followed a shower when you were" "And you found quite normal," said Surasshu again?. "Well ..... sort of. Why, how do you find it? "Replied Ranbu innocent sounding. "It sounds a little kinky you know I mean, you watched me when showering and bathing." Surasshu replied angrily.
"Well then I'm sorry that I did not." Ranbu excused himself from him. "Ranbu, I like you. You're like a brother to become for me. "Said Surasshu suddenly. "A brother?" Asked Ranbu. "Yes, brother. And the one to whom I could entrust my life if need be. "Said Surasshu. "After all, you were not only my sword, Ranbu.
You were and are now also part of my soul. "Ranbu blushed when he heard these words. "But now let us sleep." Said Surasshu and lay down. Ranbu also lay down and fell asleep.
Aussa sat on her bed and looked into the room. Her head was still a huge mess caused by its decision today to become a shaman. To which they thought about what she said about Ranbu, Hiita, Eria and Wynn for: that they all had the most talent to become a shaman. But what worried them more was the fact that some things would change in their lives.
"How am I supposed to do just?" She asked, trembling. "Where they grow beyond the.," Someone answered. Although she did not know who it was, but the voice was right: they had to surpass himself. "And I can not when I'm sitting here just manipulates and do nothing," she said, took her things and left. She stomped into the snow, breathing deeply in and out, clenching his fists and focused firmly on their surroundings.
"If I want to learn how the elements are united and divided among themselves but then I have to-" she said, her arms stretched out to the left and right. "Become one with them!" She started to scream, while the snow is compacted around them. Slowly she crossed her arms, was completely covered by snow, as they then all at once cried out, struck the snow from her body and struck the ground a huge ice crystal.
Her breath caught as the crystal was illuminated by the light of the moon. Her hair still stuck a little snow, her glasses were broken and her body was completely exhausted. . "The ice is the body of water," she said, and struck against the crystal, did nothing at first, but then broke up into smaller these millions of pieces that slowly trickle down from the sky.
. "The snow is the voice of water" She shook her body, be sure the cold snow falling from her body and said, "And the soul is cold water!"
When they threatened to fall into the snow, she was suddenly caught by someone. She looked up and saw Ranbu, they just caught. "Ranbu doing what you doing here?" She asked. "You watch the understanding of the water." He replied. He helped her up when she asked what he meant. "By that I mean that you have just learned, what is the water." He replied.
"I can tell you is that your adventure has just begun, Aussa." She wanted to ask you something, but then realized how tired she was asleep and then on the way to their home. He carried on his back home, then went back to Surasshus house and went to sleep.
The next morning, when they had just arrived at the breakfast Aussa ran into the house and said excitedly: "There were soldiers saw about twenty kilometers away from Ilé" The two were sitting quietly for a moment, then stood up before them. They took their weapons, Diana thanked for the meal and went out into the streets with Aussa, where there was already a frenzy.
"Surasshu has, how many soldiers this town?" Asked Ranbu him. "Not many, only a small militia nothing else." Surasshu replied anxiously. Ranbu laughed out. "What's so funny? They outnumber us! "Aussa said angrily. "Numbers mean nothing if you do not know who is fighting at his side. You have the majority, we have unity.
You have more soldiers, we have the environment, our home as our weapon. "The two looked at him in amazement. In those instances when they had a slight fear that he had taken from them with his words again. "Then let them come on, but we are waiting for them and give them an icy reception!"
