Kybernan - 3Chapter Three: Blade
The war for severance lasted nearly a decade. The steersman were the ones to fire the first shot, but they insisted that the humans had been wreaking havoc in Kybernân long before that.
There were actually three armies fighting in the war, the humans, the steersmen, and the knights. The humans wished to maintain some sort of control over Kybernân and the steersmen wanted them banished from their world, but the knights only wished for peace. They were humans and steersmen alike. They did everything in their power to stop the war, but there weren't nearly enough of them to rival the other two armies and they ultimately failed.
It was a beautiful morning when Roni and Peter arrived at the city park. The sun was shining through the many trees surrounding the park, which cast long shadows over the grassy field where they were standing. A strong breeze blew, causing the swings on the other side of the park to sway and a merry-go-round to spin sque
Kybernan - 2Chapter Two: Rocks
The steersman themselves were a varying race of people. Many of them seemed human enough while others hardly even looked humanoid. Some could easily be mistaken for trees and animals, while others appeared to be monsters from fairytales.
In addition to their unique forms, each steersman had a special ability of their own as well. While all their race was gifted with long life, amazing strength, unfathomable speed, and a strange second-sight, they all had ONE ability exclusive to themselves. Sometimes the ability granted additional defense, attack, healing, etc.
Then there were the Conjurors. Their special powers weren't limited so they could bring about almost anything they could see in their mind's eye. While this power seems immense, many conjurors were not satisfied with it. They traded their souls for a darkness that intensified their powers and made them nearly invulnerable. But the darkness was an addictive force that eventually killed almost all the
Kybernan - 1Chapter One: Paper
Kybernân was a dimension parallel to the planet Earth. It was a world filled with amazing powers that could be used to control both worlds. The people of this world call themselves the steersmen. For years and years evil humans would try to gain control of Kybernân and the steersmen would find their world in chaos. Many humans worked with the steersmen and together they saved Kybernân a number of times.
But peace never lasted. The evil that had attack Kybernân had polluted it. Darkness now attacked them from within as well as from outside. The steersmen then decided that it was time to cut all ties with Earth and they sealed all entrances and exits to their world. Kybernân no longer cared about the humans that ruined what was once a utopia. The steersmen were now only concerned with their own problems.
Roni sat in his sixth grade classroom energetically moving his pencil across his note book as his teacher recounted the stories
The Coffee GodThe Coffee God behind the counter shuffles foot to foot, a dance of steam and espresso. Black painted fingernails, inch gauged ears and a gray striped sweatshirt, hood crooked on his back. There's a cigarette tucked behind one ear; it bobs and twitches with each step.
“Non-fat caramel latte,” he calls, just as he always does, part of a spell, part of a mantra, toneless (just a tuck at the end). I reach. He looks up.
The espresso maker hisses.
There's something like a grin, something like a spark, something like a shared secret linked eye to eye. When he passes over the drink (rough cardboard sleeve hot to the touch), he lingers. Our fingers brush, a shiver, a jolt, a ten-watt shock.
The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
