Ishida, a young man, unexpectedly meets a girl named Rhina by sheer fate. But before long, a war erupts and they are captured by soldiers led by the malicious Lieutenant Monte. The lieutenant gives them a dreadfully simple choice: leave their homes in search of a legendary "lost city at sea," its immortal king, and bring back a mind-boggling amount of gold, or have their mountain reduced to ashes. Ishida’s father had set out in search of the place, too, but never returned. The journey will take them across oceans, sun-scorched deserts, and over perilous mountains; but most importantly of all: the two will discover their true selves will discover their true selves when they confront what will determine their fate. The questions remain: will they be able to find the lost city at sea and bring its treasures back to the avaricious lieutenant before time runs out? Or, perhaps the place they are searching for is simply non-existent?View More
There once was a saying in the land of Medietus: “What is neither possible nor impossible is neither achievable nor unachievable. All of it simply depends on the individual’s point of view.”That night, Ishida had a dream. It was nothing like any dream he had ever had.Ishida found himself standing on the balcony of a seaside house at dawn. He was staring out at the dark ocean, watching as wave after wave lapped on the shore.Seagulls flew by in the unlighted sky above him. A breeze gently shook the leaves of nearby palm trees. A bright yellow sphere was rising from the mountains, illuminating dark clouds and giving light to everything.Rays of light emerged from the calm waters, lighting up the area an
Something seemed off about the Ajenian king’s appearance. At first, Ishida and Rhina could not identify what it was.The king was in a luxurious robe…did he have a crown? Yes, he did. Was he holding a scepter? Almost— he was holding a staff. What was the problem, then?Ishida was the first to figure it out. When he did, he let out a cry of terror.“What is it, Ishida?” Rhina asked.“The king!” Ishida shrieked. “The king’s an old man!”When Rhina saw the king’s long white beard, wrinkly face, and messy white hair, she, too, let out a terrified cry.“What?” Kin
As the wooden door was slowly opened, a flash of golden light flooded out of the small opening in the door and engulfed the entire mountaintop.Finally, when the door had fully opened, Ishida and Rhina had the opportunity to gaze upon the grandeur and opulence of the reception hall.“Welcome to the Great King’s palace! Welcome to the Great King’s palace!” a multitude of voices chanted. These were the voices of King Rexius’ servants, who were all half-fish and half-beaver.The reception hall was brightly lit by crystal-like chandeliers that hung from the high ceiling and were covered by thick, red carpets with golden edges that extended up the stairs and onto the second and third floors as well.
“Bring it on!” Ishida and Rhina said in unison.The Guardian nodded. “As you wish— let’s get started. The question may sound simple, but it is far more complicated than you can imagine. The question is: what is the purpose of your search for Ajens?’ I repeat: this question is far more complicated than you think.”Ishida turned to Rhina. “I have the answer. You know it too, don’t you? Do you want to say it?”Rhina shook her head. “I know what the answer you’re thinking of is, but I think we should think very carefully before answering.”Ishida ignored Rhina’s advice and said to the giant, “The purpose of our journey was for us to have a talk wit
Lieutenant Monte’s agent was surprised to find his boss in Rexia Castellum shortly before sundown. It was at the least favorable moment that the lieutenant spotted his agent, clad in an all-black suit and relaxing in a cafe.The lieutenant was unsurprisingly furious. He ordered Sarem and Alamein to wait outside and stormed into the cafe. He trashed the place, turning tables over and smashing several chairs to oblivion.The owner of the cafe and the Del Cealans who had nothing to do with the matter took flight and rushed out the door in a stampede. With no one else around, Lieutenant Monte was free to let all of his rage explode onto his indolent agent.“Agent Lazy-Head!” Lieutenant Monte yelled in rage. “I did
Ishida and Rhina were journeying down the steadily declining slope of Mount Siwalai, walking hand in hand. They had journeyed past the meditating sage of Mount Siwalai, making as little sound as possible as they went. The sun was now about halfway between the uppermost part of the sky and the horizon. Below them was a valley in which a vast lake stood in between the feet of Mount Siwalai and Mount Nawarat. The lake’s water was clear blue, enriched by mineral deposits that came flowing down the slopes of the Holy Mountains every spring in the form of melted snow: water. The two travelers said nothing to each other. They simply smiled and continued down the grassy slope of the mountain. “Lake Azure,” as Ishida called it, was soon within an arm’s reach
It mustn’t be forgotten that far beneath the clouds, during the climax of the journey of the two young explorers, one of the largest wars the world had ever seen was raging on the continent of Piletus.When Rhina was trapped underground by the avalanche, an emergency assembly was held in Piletus City, with all the Piletan generals and admirals summoned to the palace of Emperor Khartoum the Seventeenth.There, the leaders of the Piletan military forces began arguing over whose strategy should be put into effect and about whether the Piletan forces should be saved to defend the capital or used to launch a counter-attack on the rapidly-advancing Medietans.General Iskenderson, who was the highest-ranking general in the Imperial Piletan Army, sat at the emperor&rs
Ishida had not regained his consciousness, but he was still breathing and his pulse was not fainting.Rhina went around searching for the “snow raft,” only to find that it had been smashed to pieces by a huge boulder that was brought down the mountain with the avalanche.She then tried to find a log to use as a new “snow raft,” but all of the logs on the mountainside were either splintered, cracked, or much too large to pull.Rhina had been trapped underground for about three hours, and she was now running behind schedule. It would only be a matter of time before the sinks under the horizon and the darkness settles in.Rhina lifted Ishida onto her back, and, with a miraculously renewed and empower
The opening of the cave was less than ten meters away. The avalanche, meanwhile, continued to increase its already inconceivable speed and was just a few hundred meters away from the two travelers.Five meters to go! Rhina continued pushing forward. She was not about to give in to Mother Nature. A few seconds later, her vision was obscured by the huge clouds of snow that rushed ahead of the avalanche.Even though she could not see beyond her own nose, she remained calm. Three meters!Soon, Rhina could feel the opening of the cave with her own hands. She lifted Ishida from the “snow raft” and promptly threw him into the cave. She was about to rush in as well wh
