Tales of an Alternate Reality 1 The Long Hard Road Within a land filled with demons, humans fight hard to perceiver. Deep within the forest lies a training facility to train humans to live on. This place is called TAR. Thousands are trained here so those humans may continue to live to protect their fellow man. Though the academy has thousands of students enrolled, not many know of its existence. From the smallest of duties to the largest of wars, TAR has assisted in anything that can help its fellow man. In 712, A powerful dictator ruled a large majority of the land, and had threatened the rest. Tyrone, the head of the TAR military had began an assault upon this person's castle. On the head attack team, he placed the one he trusted most, Daniel. Daniel also entrusted the title of Lieutenant to whom he trusted most, Zach. Zach had only joined the academy one-year beforehand, but he made much progress and Daniel had faith in him. Both Daniel and Zach were able to sneak into the castle, however Zach's life would change greatly after what happened that day. Something that cannot ever be forgotten. However this was all in the past. Now Zach is doing a quest he finds to be rather dull. He is traveling with his only two real friends, Kelly and Kirsten. Zach is now one of the academy's highest rank students though he puts down any offers to become an officer of any higher rank. He has mastered the art of Fire and continues to improve his technique with his large blade. Kelly prefers to use her bow as a weapon to strike down enemies from a distance. She is also is beginning to master the art of wind. Kirsten is more or less the bookworm. She studies nearly all the time, unless out on a mission, and has the highest grades in the academy. She is very adept at using mind techniques and types of hypnosis to confuse her enemy. Against mindless demons however, her powers over the mind have little use. "Why are you walking so far ahead?" Kirsten yelled to Zach, as he was about six feet ahead of both her and Kelly. "Why?" Zach yelled without even turning back to look, "have a problem with me walking ahead of you two?" "It's not very sociable of you," she exclaimed back. Zach continued to look up, putting his arms behind his head as if he were bored. "How big is this forest anyway?" Zach asked, still looking upward. "It should be a little while before we get there still", answered Kirsten. Zach sighed, but continued to look up. "What's the matter?" Kelly asked. She could see the corner of his eye and could tell that he was very deep in thought, despite his bored appearance. He didn't reply. She took a few quick steps to catch up with him and put her hand on his shoulder. She began to speak but before she could Zach grabbed her hand and took it off of his shoulder. "Don't worry about it," Zach answered, though his eyes still shown signs of deep thought. Kelly slowed her pace and returned to walk beside Kirsten. She knew in fact exactly what he was thinking about. "He's thinking about that one day," she thought to herself. That day two years ago when Daniel had left. He was the most important person in the world to Zach at the time, and the only person he ever looked up to. Zach then suddenly stopped and looked decisively to his right. Before they could ask what he had seen, Zach had grabbed the hilt of his blade and literally vanished from sight. Moments later he reappeared in front of them. "There was a demon watching us," he said, answering the question that they hadn't even had time to ask, "it wasn't strong though. Let's keep moving." He resumed to his position with his arms behind his head and continued on ahead of them. "Zach why don't you ever accept a higher position?
