It's been 10 days since I left the Woods of Thorns and headed to the Woods of Misdirection.  I'm only a four days' walk to the Woods of Misdirection.  I'll admit I'm running low on supplies.  Hopefully I'd come across a village soon.  Once it got dark, I got out my tent.  I cooked my dinner, grilled salmon, carrots in a mustard glaze, and a fruit tart made of wild fruits.

Once I finished eating and cleaned up, I got out my sewing kit.  From the silk I got when I killed the Hell Phoenix, I made a light pink dress with a darker pink collar that covered my shoulders and opened up at my chest, with pink designs on the front of the collar, a pink skirt section, the same color as the collar, with the same pink designs on the bottom that stopped just below my knees and pink high heels, and a light pink sleeveless top with a sheet of sheer silk that covered up to my shoulders and went up my neck and was held in place with a necklace made of three lines of white pearls, a flower shape in the middle made of jade, an emerald drop, red jade, a pink pearl in the middle, a white ribbon tying it together and a rose quartz dangle, and halfway up the necklace, on both sides was a flower with a jade in the middle and rose quartz petals, on each wrist, a bracelet made of white ribbons and held together by a rose shaped ruby, a long pink skirt that stopped at my knees and white high-heels that had white ribbons all around my legs and held together with rose shaped rubies.  I then put the dresses and my sewing kit away.

Tonight was a full moon and I had seen a creek nearby.  I went into my closet to decide on a dress.  I picked the dress that covered my chest with pink designs at the top, then triangulated down where it had a diamond shape that reached my belly button in the middle with translucent cloth, then had a pink design that had a triangle attachment shape connecting the skirt, the skirt split open at my knees, there were sleeves that started halfway between my shoulder and my elbow, there were long, translucent drapes that started at the start of the sleeve and ended at my elbow, the sleeves were long and stopped at the level of my ankles, and regular sleeves to my wrists. I finished the outfit with plain, sparkling, white high heels.  It was the dress I made out of the silk I got when I killed the Hell Wolf in the Shrine of Frost.

I put on the dress and got out of my tent.  I activated the protection crystal and went to where the creek was.  I closed my eyes and started to dance and sing.  Since my eyes were closed, I didn't notice that the aquamarine and the pearl in my necklace were glowing and that drops of water, as well as golden sparkling trails of light, were being traced from where my hands moved.   The moonlight shone on me.  The moonlight caught on the water droplets, creating small rainbows around me.  I kept dancing and singing for two hours.  When I opened my eyes, the light and the water droplets were gone.  I then went back to my tent.  I then put on my white nightgown with three thin straps at the shoulders, a thin pink bow at the back, frills at the bottom of shirt area, and lacing at the bottom of the skirt, which stopped above my knees.  To add to it, I had a bracelet out of white bands and a thin white hair tie that tied into a bow.  I then got in bed.  True to the broken record, my night then got interesting.

I was standing at the top of a hill, covered in blood and sweat.  Someone then came up to my right and spoke.

“You did it ~~~~~.” the person said.  “You ~~~~~~ the ~~~~ ~~~~~~.”

“No, old friend.” I said.  “I merely ~~~~~~~~ ~~~, I did not ~~~~ ~~~.  ~~ was sent to the ~~~~~.  You know ~~ will ~~~~ ~~~~.”

“Then what do we do ~~~~~?” the person asked.

“Let us meet the ~~~~~~.” I answered.  “~~~ will know how to fix this.”

I then woke up, gasping for breath.

After I had calmed down, I got up and did my morning routine.  I then put on my lavender top with long sleeves and a purple stripe at the wrists, a white ruffle at the collar, purple covers over my shoulders, a small purple scarf-like choker, a short purple skirt that stopped halfway to my knees with a purple ruffle at the bottom, white socks, and strappy, purple high-heels.  I then made my breakfast, fried eggs, toast, and milk.  As I ate my breakfast, I thought about my dream.

'Why was I covered in blood?' I wondered.  'Was it after a battle?  Sigh, I wish I understood all of this.  The dreams all seem like they're important, but I can never figure them out.  Well, I'm not going to try to figure this out.  I suppose it will all make sense eventually.  Maybe the prophet will be able to explain it to me.'

I then finished my breakfast and cleaned up.  I packed up my tent and continued on the path to the Woods of Misdirection.  Around mid-day, I came across a village.  I went in and stocked up on supplies.  I then left the village and continued on my way.  I didn't know then, but I would have to overcome a great challenge to get to the prophet...

I know this is kinda short, but the next chapter will be really long to compensate.

ORAS May Contest Dress by Ayrafeneres
ORAS May Contest Dress
This is May from Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire in the dress she wears for Contests
Loading...
It's been a week since I left Iyashi and headed to the Woods of Thorns.  During which time I made a white dress that went halfway down my thighs, with a turned up bottom hem, a turned down collar that encircled my shoulders, long sleeves that had turned up cuffs, light gray leggings that went all the way to the top of my thighs, light brown high heel boots that went to just above my ankles, a white bow on each and finished with a plain light gray choker that I would wear when I got to the Woods of Thorns.  I woke up, did my morning routine, put on my new dress, made a simple breakfast of milk, cheese and bread, ate, packed up, and headed to the Woods of Thorns.  It only took me 2 hours to get there.  When I got there I saw why it was called the Woods of Thorns.  There was no path that wasn't covered in thorny vines.  I cast a support spell.

“O brilliant light, be as a wall to allay arms!” I chanted.  “Force Field!”

I was then surrounded by a sphere of golden light.  I then walked down the path into the Woods of Thorns.  As I was walking, I was marveling at how all the thorny vines snapped at the barrier sphere.  About 2 hours later, I arrived at a clearing free of the thorny vines.  I then saw the Shrine.  There was a stone pillar and the Shrine was completely covered in thick vines.  I walked up to the stone pillar. When I got there I heard the voice.

'If you are truly Ayren place your hand on this stone.  Ayren's touch shall clear a path to the Power of Healing.'

I put my hand on the stone.  It then shone a prismatic light.  I then heard a weird noise and looked at the Shrine.  I saw that the vines had parted to reveal the entrance into the Shrine.  When I got in, I saw a maze with walls made of thorny vines, what looked like guillotines that fell and retracted, and a few huge fans.

I walked into the maze.  I stepped on a tile and it depressed.  I then jumped back and barely dodged what looked like a huge stamper.  It lifted up and I ran past it right before it fell again.  I took a left and the first tile I stepped on depressed and one of the fans blew an intense wind that slammed me against the thorny wall.  I screamed in pain.  My back was bleeding pretty badly, but I ran to the next passage before the wind blew again.

I continued in this fashion until I reached the corridor that led to the door.  As I walked towards it, the tile depressed and I lunged forward, but my left foot got smashed by the trap.  I screamed and dragged myself to the door.  In the next room was a pool of healing water, braces for the wrists, hands, knees, and feet, ointment, a tub to wash clothes, and bandages.  I took off my clothes, which were covered in blood, and put them in the tub.  I then got into the pool of healing water.  Then, the blood on my clothes vanished and the damage to them was fixed. The same happened with my shoes, which I put into the tub as well.

After about half an hour, I got out of the pool.  The bleeding had stopped and the wounds on my back were healed, but my left foot was so badly damaged that even healing water couldn't fix it.  I used the ointment to clean the wound, bandaged it, and put the foot brace on it.  It still hurt a bit when I walked on it, but it would have to do.  I put my clothes back on and went through the door.

The room I entered had a huge cage-like structure in the middle made of thorny vines, a red tile at each corner of the room, thorny vines that covered all of the walls except for the four red tiles, and the Altar at the back.  I walked down the stairs and felt a gust of wind.  A giant phoenix, with black, glowing wings, a black body, and glowing green eyes, descended.

“I am the Hell Phoenix!” it shouted in Ancient Alternion.  “A Hell General of the Dark Soldiers of the Dark Army!  If you are here, you must be Ayren!”

“That's right!” I yelled in Ancient Alternion.  “I am Ayren, the Warrior of White Light!  I have come to reclaim my Power of Healing and become complete once more!”

“Ha!  If you think this is all you need to be complete again, you are in for a nasty shock!” the Hell Phoenix yelled.  “But you won't live that long!  You will die here Ayren!”

That confused me, but I didn't have time to think about it.  The Hell Phoenix took to the air.  It used its wings to whip up winds so powerful that I was blown into the thorns.  I kept trying to do Lightning artes with my bow, but it would keep interrupting me.  I was bleeding all over, then, time stopped and I heard the voice.

'The red tile on the door's left will squash the Hell Phoenix in the cage!  Use Gravity Well to get it into the cage!  It'll open its mouth when it screams in pain!  The weak point Gem is in its mouth!'

Time returned to normal.  So I knew what to do, but I couldn't channel a spell with the Hell Phoenix constantly blowing me every which-a-way.  It was looking hopeless when time stopped again.  Then, a figure appeared before me.  He was a man with blond hair, sapphire studded armor, a beautiful white bow and quiver, and a white sword.  The man was translucent, but oddly familiar.  He held out his left hand.  I placed my left hand on his and closed my eyes.  Power then rushed through me.  I recalled how to make a shield of light using my Light and support powers, and I recalled how to gather energy with strikes and spells, and how to unleash that power, making me not have to channel spells.  When I opened my eyes, the man smiled, nodded, and, as he was disappearing, he said something.  But all I could make out were the words, '...journey isn't over yet'.  Then he vanished and time went back to normal.  I then decided to unleash the gathered energy to make me go into, Overlimit.

“It's time to take you down!” I yelled as I activated Overlimit.

I was then surrounded by sky blue light and I cast an Earth spell without having to channel.

“Gravity Well!” I yelled.

A sphere of brown energy then surrounded the Hell Phoenix and started to drag it down into the cage.  I then ran over to the tile on the door's left and, once the Hell Phoenix was in the cage, stepped on the tile.  Immediately, a block the size of the cage, that had spikes on the bottom, slammed onto the Hell Phoenix.  It shrieked in agony and I saw the Gem.  I then used my Blast Edge bow arte to pierce the Gem.  The Hell Phoenix then disintegrated and left behind some light pink and pink silk cloth and a pile of gold coins.  Then, all the thorns and vines in the room vanished.  I hobbled over to the silk and gold and put them away.  I then hobbled over to the Altar.  I then heard the voice.

'Take back the Power of Healing that you laid to rest here.

The prismatic sphere then shone a bright light.  When it faded, the sphere had become a diamond.  It floated to my neck and then there was another bright flash of light.  When the light faded, the diamond was in the very middle of my necklace.  I was then surrounded by a prismatic light and I remembered all my Healing spells.  When the light faded, all my injuries, including my left foot, were healed and my clothes were back to normal.  A circle of light then appeared to the right of the Altar.  I stepped into it and, suddenly, I was back outside the Shrine.  I looked back and all the vines had disappeared.

'Now I am the Warrior of White Light again, right?' I thought.  'Something is off, I'm sure of it.  Who was that man who gave me back my power of shield and Overlimit?  Wait, was that Ayren?!  That's impossible but, who else could it have been?  He said my journey isn't over yet.'

I got out my map and looked at it.  There was a light that was changing color in the Woods of Misdirection.

'The prophet lives in the Woods of Misdirection.' I thought.  'Maybe the prophet can tell me what I'm still missing.  Because I am definitely still missing something.'

With that decided, I headed down the path that led to the Woods of Misdirection.  It would take about two weeks to get there.  Hopefully there will be a village where I can restock on supplies.  I didn't know, then, that the prophet wasn't the only one waiting for me in the Woods of Misdirection...
Chapter 29
Phew, that took forever and a day.  I wonder who else is waiting for Ayra in the Woods of Misdirection?

It's been 5 days since I left the Shrine of Purity and reclaimed my Power of Light.  Iyashi, the village close to the Woods of Thorns, was in sight.  Hopefully, they'll have something that I could use to protect myself and my clothes from the thorns.  But, as I got closer, I saw something was VERY wrong.  There were wounded people, craters from spells, lots of blood, and tons of Dark Soldiers.  I ran as fast as I could.  I ran up to a lady who seemed to be in charge of healing the wounded.

“Ma'am, what's happening here?!” I asked.

“We couldn't afford the tribute last week.” the lady said.  “So, this is our punishment.  But that's better than another possible reason.”

“What reason?” I asked.

“I can not be specific, but there is an artifact of the Warrior of White Light here.” the lady said.  “Thankfully, the Dark Soldiers do not know of it, or the attack would be much fiercer.  Still, I do not know how much longer we can hold out.”

“I'll take care of it.” I said.  'If I get rid of the Dark Soldiers, maybe I could get the artifact I left here when I was Ayren.  As usual, I don't remember doing that.'

“How?” the lady asked.  “We couldn't possibly ask that of a child such as you!”

“Just let me take care of it.” I said.  “Have the fighters retreat back into the village.”

“But-” the lady started.

“Just do it!!” I screamed.

The lady nodded and motioned to the fighters to fall back.  I then walked to the front and faced the horde of Dark Soldiers.  I channeled a Light spell.

“Come, o silver light!” I chanted.  “Angel Ring!”

A huge pillar of pearly white light surrounded all the Dark Soldiers.  Then it pushed in and vaporized all the Dark Soldiers.  I turned around and saw the lady staring at me with an odd expression.  She then ran up, grabbed my hand, and dragged me into a large house.

“Okaa-san(mom)!” she called out.  “I have someone you need to meet!”

Then, a woman who looked to be in her late forties came down the stairs and walked up to us.

“Laileia, what happened to the Dark Soldiers?” she asked.  “And who is this young girl?”

“Oh, uh, my name is Ayra.” I said.  “Um, who are you?”

“I am Lithila, the mayor of Iyashi.” she said.  “So, Laileia, what happened to the Dark Soldiers?”

“Ayra-san(miss Ayra) destroyed them all with one Light spell!” Laileia said.  “Are you thinking what I'm thinking, okaa-san?”

'Uh oh.' I thought, sweating badly.  'This does NOT look good.  I need to get away.'

But before I could leave, Laileia cast a Light spell that prevents anyone from eavesdropping.

“Don't worry, Ayra-san, no one can hear us.” Laileia said.  “So, is my hunch right? Are you Ayren-sama(lord Ayren)?”

“Uh, um, er.” I stuttered.

'Great, my cover's blown!' I thought, panicking.

“It is true!” Lithila said, smiling.  “Wait here Ayren-sama.”

Then, Lithila ran back up the stairs.

“Oh what a happy day!” Laileia said, crying.  “Our prayers have finally been answered!”

“Huh?” I asked, confused.

“We have been praying for your return for 500 years Ayren-sama!” she said.

Then, Lithila came back down the stairs.  She was holding something.  When she got to where we were standing, I saw that the thing she was holding was a crest type thing with a green colored dragon surrounding a silver colored shield.  On the shield were the words 'Crest of Sacred Protection' in Ancient Alternion.

“Our family was entrusted with this crest by you, Ayren-sama, 2000 years ago.” Lithila said.  “We have guarded the secret of its existence all this time.  We were told to give it to Ayren's reincarnation, who would prove their power by vanquishing evil.  Although the name of this crest has been lost since no one can read it.  You are most definitely Ayren-sama.  So, I return this to you.”

She put it in my hands and, as I was looking at it, my vision suddenly got dark. When my vision cleared, I was standing in front of a village.  Then someone walked up to me.  I wanted to see who it was, but I couldn't turn around.

“It's finished ~~~~~.” the person said.  “It's made of empowered jade and shining silver.  I also imbued it with my ~~~~~ of ~~~~~~~~~~.”

“Thank you my old friend.” I said.

“Who are you going to entrust it to?” the person asked.

“I shall entrust it to the leader of this village.” I said.  “They shall give it to ~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ when they appear.”

Then, there was a flash of light and I was staring at the crest again.  But neither Laileia or Lithila looked concerned, so I guessed I hadn't passed out or anything. Then, something strange happened.  The Crest of Sacred Protection shone a bright light and vanished.  Then, my hairpin started shining, then changed shape into a butterfly.  I then remembered all my support spells.

“You truly are Ayren-sama.” Laileia said.  “We must tell all the villagers and throw a grand feast!”

“NO!” I shouted.

“Why not Ayren-sama?” Lithila asked.  “It would give everyone hope at last.”

“And how much do you want to bet that the villagers will spread that fact around?” I demanded.  “This journey is hard enough without more expectations and hopes pinned on me.  Besides, the people's behavior will alert the Dark Soldiers and that would alert the Hell Dragon.  He would torture and kill innocent people to find out about me.  My mission is to become the Warrior of White Light once more and protect everyone.  But I can't do that as I am.  I don't want lives to be lost needlessly.”

“I see your point, Ayren-sama.” Laileia said.  “Then, what do you need to buy here? We'll buy it for you.  It's the least we can do.”

“I was hoping to buy some white cloth, some light gray cloth, and some provisions.” I said.  “I wrote a list of what I need.”

I handed Laileia the list.

“Okay, we'll go buy these things.” Lithila said.  “Then you can sneak out of the village before people notice you.”

“Thank you for understanding, Lithila-san, Laileia-san.” I said.

They then left.  About half an hour later, they came back with the things I had asked for.  They then led me out of the village, saying that they would pray that I could once again be the Warrior of White Light and swore on the honor of their family line to not tell anyone who I am.  I then departed in the direction of the Woods of Thorns.  If all goes well, I'll become the Warrior of White Light once more after I regain my Power of Healing, right?  I can't shake the feeling that I'm missing more of myself.  I didn't know, at that time, how much more I would have to do to regain myself...
