I had a nice time over Christmas break. As stated previously, I was really looking forward to the semester ending. I found out I got nice grades (an A, B, and a C! =) ), but even still, that semester...wasn't really fun, and the break was quite welcome. I went out of town a little bit to take care of some business.
The night was overcast and it was pitch black. It had been a quiet night...and that's exactly how I wanted it to stay. I was almost there. I had infiltrated the castle and was running along the roof intent on reaching the Pirate King's lair. No one had seen me, and those who had stood in my way now marked my path with their unconscious bodies. Scanning the courtyard below, I saw it was completely empty of people for the moment. I jumped down into a tree, then to the ground, and withdrew my kunai. He was just through the door in front of me.
The bright flash of light behind me took me by surprise. Whirling around, I threw darts at the incoming figure, which were merely swatted aside. Floating a foot off the ground was a winged girl adorned in white and pink with a horn sticking out of the side of her head. Within her hand was a small, white box. "Shadow assassin, I know why you're here," she said.
My tanto was immediately unsheathed. "Out of my way, creature of magic," I hissed at her. "I won't let you stop me from smashing the brotherhood."
"Oh hoh, is that so...!" A flame enveloped the object she held, spiraling out, leaving behind an intricate sword in its wake. "You think you can best me at melee combat?"
I knew I likely couldn't, but I knew how to win. I didn't respond with words. I dashed towards her.
Other than that, not much interesting happened. And...hey, this is my first entry for 2007. Time keeps moving on. I remember fretting before about time continuing to progress like this. I mean...geez, this year, I'm going to be a quarter of a century old! >_< Not that I mind (entirely), because I'll always view myself continually as young at heart, and that physical "age" is merely a number of years I've been here, instead of a meaning of status, because...y'know, I don't think I'll ever "grow up." Grown-ups just seem so down and don't seem fun! I don't ever want to be like that! :) So...happy 2007, may this year be a hundred times better than last year, and may the following year be even more awesome!
