In Complete Darkness

    Chapter 1- In Complete Darkness
            Unaware of my surroundings, I am alone and in complete darkness, I strain to see even the slightest glimmer of light; but alas there is only emptiness. The cavern that shelters me from the outside world also envelops me in fear.  I yearn to hear even the faintest sound, a direction to focus upon, but still nothing; nothing but the beat of my heart pounding inside my chest.  I would scream; but I fear that someone might find me, so I continue to hide.  For now I am safe inside this cave, but I know in time the Morshmen will come.  All men are aware that King Mord’s soldiers the Morshmen, fear complete darkness, for in darkness the Spectra exist.  But in time they will enter the cave, if King Mord so commands them.  So for now, I hide;  knowing that I must eventually leave this place of solitude.

Legend of the Stones

 Legend of the Stones

 The power concealed…

 Long ago there were Three Great Kings and each possessed a single stone; a stone so brilliant that the human eye could not stare directly into their light.  Alone the stones looked rather plain, however when the stones were placed together they contained a power unsurpassed by any other known to man.  These Noble Kings were burdened by the miraculous powers their stones possessed.  They were all too well aware that if the stones had ever fallen into the wrong hands; that same magnificent power could be used for evil.  Evil so unspeakable that it could not be controlled; and so knowing this, the three Kings parted never to see one another again, each taking a single stone with them; thus protecting their secret and guarding their stone…

Guardian of the Stone, the Beginning…

Every story starts at the beginning; so before I release the first chapter, it is only fair that you learn a little bit about history… 

Guardian of the Stone
             The Beginning…
        History begins with the written word, together with verbal accounts handed down from one generation to the next.  Over one hundred thousand years ago, long after the dinosaurs roamed the earth, but before time was recorded; our planet Earth did reveal a civilization much different from our own.
        In an age before modern man was known, a conception of beings emerged.  Some were men, some were beasts, and some possessed both qualities; all coexisting on our planet in a constant struggle to survive.  Did these creatures shape our world and could past transgressions consume future generations?  Who would triumph and what lessons would we learn?  Could time have removed all traces of this lost civilization; leaving our history to simply be forgotten and thus giving way to the world as we now know it?
       Thousands of years have slipped away securing the only account known to modern man.  However, hidden deep inside a cave atop a high mountain, a simple scroll does exist and this is the only record of our past, our civilization and our history….
       This story depicts ancient times, an age when Three Great Kings ruled the earth and three simple stones controlled our destinies.  Only one boy can save the world and restore the balance of good and evil.  This boy must become a man, a Guardian and King.  He is an innocent boy whose heart and mind had not yet been compromised; a boy who was always a King and Guardian of the stone.
