Mitchel paced around the castle garden in obbsesive thought. Every step bounced his red locks as he continued to move up and down along the lines of princess rose bushes.
the ceremony the night before had not gone over well. Every other knight gundam had been born except for his. but why? the questioned pounded his mind over and over again, he held his chin in deep thought. Maybe the old sorcerer was right. Perhaps, maybe, it was cursed. was it his fualt? Did his Laziness and unwillingness to except his duty curse the poor creature? But maybe it was actually prince Luther who was correct, that maybe instead of cursed, it was blessed? He grunted. all these thoughts made the poor squire's head hurt. finally coming to a stop, he proceeded to pull something out of the carrier bag at his side. In his palm he revealed a Shining Blue orb, glowing brilliantly against the nightly darkness, a gem rivaling that of the very stars themselves. With another grunt, the teenager sat with blue orb in hand againsta Princess rose bush, and looking hopeless, he sighed.
"A gundam knight..." he mused "coming out of this little thing?" He glazed over the spirit egg in his palm, the blue brilliance shining off of his freckled cheeks. "why won't you hatch little one? I need you to hatch! If you don't hatch..." he paused. "... Then I won't become I myself will be denied the title of a knight..." He toyed with the orb in his hand.
'if you dont have this gundam hatched by sunset, then you have proven yourself worthless as a squire!' the words of head magician repeated itself in his mind. Sunset had already passed, and the twin moons now hung gracefully above the locroa landscape, but all this beauty just meant failure to Mitchel. He had snuck away from the royal garuds that were after him, but he knew that his location would sooner or later be found out.
once again, his gaze averted him and he looked once more at the egg.
He killed it.
It was dead.
It was all his fault.
He killed a knight.
not just any knight, but a gundam knight.
a reincarnation of one the seven heroes that saved the Locroa of old.
He killed it.
He had just killed a hero....
He sighed even more sorrowfully than before, then, he rested his forehead against it, anguish overcoming him, he closed his eyes, and let his thoughts overtake him....
'Live, please dont die...'
he secretly prayed. ' I want you to live, Im sorry,Im sorry, I dont want you to die, Im sorry, Im so so sorry, just please, be born, breath, come into life, dont die, just please dont die...'
the words echoed through his mind, but one sentance stood out the most...
'live little one, live.'
A bright flash shocked his eyes open, and surprised, the teen jumped and ended up a few feet from the exspolsion of light. "What the!!?" Mitchel looked at to the spot where he was previously sitting, and was shocked to find that the spirit egg was now hovering above the ground! with a slight suspense the orb rose higher into the sky, untill it reached in direct light of the moons, completely illuminatted by the pure light. now in full light, you could clearly see the beautifull transparency, the colour bathing Mitchel and the area around him in a ocean like blue. The nucleus of the orb, a slightly pale grey, was clearly visible. Mitchel's jaw felt like it would detatch from his skull from all his gaping. His eyes almost quivered at the brightness, but still he did not look away.
Another flash made the boy wince, but this time two rings cricled aorund the orb. It took a moment before the boy realized that the rings were actually made up of Locroan spells! four orbs detatched from the original egg and soon transformed into feathers, softly dancing around their host as if in ritual. The greyish center of the egg seemed to get brighter and brighter, and seemed like...it was moving? what? it was moving! the center pushed and pulled as it molded into a shape. intoa paticular shape actually. Mitchell squinted his eyes in the light, but what it seemed to be was...a gunbabe. the faint sillouheit of a gundam child. The figure, crouched into a fetal postion, was pale, deprived of all colour, which just seemed to add to the mystery of it. In another burst of light, the orb seemed to expand, then just dissapate, leaving the small gundam child all alone with the two rings of spells. at last, the two spells morphed together, creating one giant ring wihch absorbed itself into the figure of the gunbabe, and with that, the final flash of light came and gone. But the form was now different. no longer a sillhouette, you could see the finest detials of the premature armour of the gunchild. The white under armour, the blue colour of the outer armour, and a pure gold v-fin shaped like two wings conjoined by a sparkelling emerald.
The teen remianed speechless. of all magic he had seen, none was like this. the four feathers from before had now formed a ring, seemingly carrying the curled child down softly and elegently as possible. With a timidness, Mitchell inched foreward, almost afraid that the wrong step would somehow destroy this wonderous act. with a overwhelming breathlessness overcoming him, he let the tiny figure fall into his cupped palms.
Breathless. Wonderfull. Beautifull. Mitchell examined the tiny form. It was so small! even smaller than a human newborn, he could probably hold this little gundam in one hand! amazing! it was almost like a sprite, or even a fairy! To his amzement, the little creature began to move. Like a newly hatched swan, the baby began to uncurl itself. first the legs stretched out. then the arms. finally their little head rose up. with a few blinks,he opened his eyes. They looked into the world, Teal light blue, untainted, eyes, and they were looking at Mitchel.
Mitchel became even more breathless by the minute. A geniune smile spread across his face, and with joyfull enthuisiasm He said "welcome to the world little one..."
looking upon the child once more, a name came to his mind, maybe delivered by a spiritual force, but nonetheless delivered.He smirked.
"Welcome to the world, little Zero."
yeah yeah, I know, bad punctiation, grammar, etc. etc. but I'm gonna fix it later all right.
'sides, I'll probably move this too scraps later.
