omg the first ikarishipping fic on these forums!! and my first fic ever!! =D ok anyways this fic is ikarishipping rated (PG13) for mild language soon to come and if there is anymore information needed please tell me =)
The hidden town of Futaba has remained a secret as long anyone could remember. Though it is a mystery if such a place exists, there is a legend that depicts the town as a small happy town with very few villagers and a beautiful castle made of diamonds and pearls near the north end of the town. The castle is said to be filled with riches to no end, and a kind family has shared their riches with the villagers for generations.
People from all over the world have searched in vain for the small town and the riches of its castle. No one has ever found the enigmatic place yet, or even proof of its existence. Yet the town is still under constant attack from all people of the earth.
But one fateful day, an evil soul had found the answer and all Futaba’s secrets had fallen into the wrong hands...
“This is it...” A young pirate thought as he approached the pedestal.
A golden light shone from the treasure chest the pirate had searched for all his life. He pulled out a wrinkled piece of paper from his grayish torn pants. Strange inscriptions had been written on the old piece of paper ages ago.
“I am the first to decipher and even find this old piece of junk..” the pirate thought to himself. “No other scholars could have deciphered it even if they did find it.” A confident smile passed his face for a second.
He stood in front of the chest and hoped he had deciphered right. “Ouvrez-vous dans le nom de Hikari, princesse de Futaba!” He spoke loudly and clearly.
The treasure chest let out a creaking sound and opened slowly, revealing an old scroll with golden handles. A smirk crossed the pirate’s already intimidating face as he walked forward to retrieve the scroll.
The minute he touched the scroll, a huge earthquake began to sound, and the ice cave the young pirate had been in started to cave in. But he was well-prepared. Such intelligence and strength should not have been given to one with such evil intentions. Sharp ice stalagtites started to fall from the ceiling. The pirate lifted his hand towards the ceiling, and a blast of fire shot out of his hand in strange pattern.
The ice cave had completely collapsed as the horrified pirates looked on from their ship in the ocean.
“Our captain was in there!” One of the pirates yelped. “How dare he! He promised us fortunes!” Another yelled.
The pirates on the ship had begun a big fight over their presumed dead captain except for the youngest, who still could not believe his captain was dead. “How could you leave me like this?” He asked staring into the mist of the crumbled ice cave. As his eyes began to water, a dark shadow materialized from the mist, and the small pirate looked on to see his captain walking back to the ship.
“Look! The Captain! He’s alive!” The pirates cheered as their leader made his way back to the ship.
“Of course I’m alive. Did any of you doubt me?” the captain asked glaring boldly at his crew.
“I sure didn’t captain!” The youngest pirate gave the captain a big hug.
“I know you didn’t, Marcel.” The captain smiled fondly. He quickly regained his hard look and ordered the rest of his crew to make dinner.
“I knew you could do it brother!” Marcel cheered. “But how did you get past all those traps in the cave?”
The captain sighed and pulled his little brother on his lap. “Remember that old piece of paper we found at that deserted island?”
“I sure do brother!” Marcel squealed. “You saved Jacques from that huge Sharpedo remember!”
“I remember.” The captain chuckled, “Anyways, the paper said that the treasure could only be given to ‘the one with the Power of the Land.’ I don’t know about land but wouldn’t you think that someone that can do this can get through those caves?”
The Captain pointed to the dark sky, and miles away, wheels of fire began to dance in the sky. Marcel giggled, knowing that his brother was only luring away the people trying to arrest his captain for theft.
“Didn’t I tell everyone I could do it?” The captain smiled.
“You sure did!” Marcel mischievously tugged on the captain’s short purple hair. “You sure did Shinji...”
great so that's it..i know it sucks but reviews and suggestions would be nice =)
2nd half of prologue =) Meeting Hikari
A piercing squeal shook the crystal castle, frightening hundreds of butlers and maids.
“Oh my goodness! Mother, I can’t believe this!” A pretty young girl jumped for joy at the sight of the red box her mother presented to her. “Please Hikari,” the girl’s mother pleaded, “You’ll wake up Ribbons.” But the bluish gray family pet stayed asleep on the coral rug, paying no attention to Hikari or her mom.
“Oh, that old Nyaruma is fine!” Hikari giggled, “Right, sweetheart?”
The old cat just yawned and went back to sleep. Hikari gave Ribbons a snack then swam back to her mother and her new birthday present.
“Wow I wonder what Mother got me this year.” Hikari wondered, “This is my best birthday ever. I can’t imagine life without my mother.” Hikari smiled at took a look at the numerous boxes stacked right behind her. “The villagers are very supportive too.” Hikari thought. “I could buy another cave with all those gifts.”
It was true. Hikari’s family was so popular in the small town of Futaba for being good rulers of their mermaid race. Their precious city was hidden in a huge triangle shaped boulder buried deep under the sands of the ocean. There is only a small hole in the tip of the boulder that peeks above the surface and allows sunlight in, but the interior walls of the boulder are paved with precious metals reflecting and amplifying the small ray of sunlight in many directions, illuminating the entire cave. At night, the great castle of Futaba glows vividly from the servant’s Lanturns lurking in the castle and the town of Futaba sleeps peacefully with a vast aurora circling the town, almost as if it’s protecting the peaceful town from intruders. They also have a secret entrance out of the city, but only Hikari knows about that.
“Well, are you going to open your present?” Her mother reminded her.
Hikari snapped out of her trance, and untied the sparkling white ribbon on her birthday present. She tore away the bright red wrapping paper and opened the white box it concealed.
“Mother.. it’s beautiful...” Hikari sighed enchantedly. “It’s gorgeous! Where did you get it?” She held up the beautiful pearl necklace that was hidden in the box.
“Remember the stories grandma always told you?” her mother giggled.
“Those old fairytales?!?” Hikari scoffed. “They weren’t true! How could somebody have the powers of the oceans or marry the prince of the land? Are there even such things as humans? I’m sure any mermaid down here would rather kiss a Feebas.”
“Oh quiet! They could be true. It is an old legend.” Her mother quieted her. “Anyways, Grandmother had that nice friend with the tank of Clampearls. He took the best he had and made a perfect necklace just for your birthday.”
“Wow that’s so sweet of him.” Hikari dreamed. She held the necklace up to her chest. “Hey it matches my sea shell hair pins and my shirt too!”
Hikari carefully locked on her new necklace and admired herself in the mirror. Her white, sea shell hair pins glittered brilliantly against her dark hair and her pearl necklace matched the sea shells in her hair and the white sea shells holding the sleeves of her white dress which came down to what humans would call her "knees." Her dress also contrasted beautifully against her dark tail and hot pink fins. She was easily the most beautiful mermaid in the ocean.
“Oh my baby is so gorgeous..” Hikari’s mother sighed, “Ok well I’m going go downstairs and make sure all the preparations for your party are ready.”
Hikari’s mother left Hikari in her quiet room staring at herself in the mirror. She kept staring at her reflection deep in thought then snapped her fingers when she got an idea.
“I know just the thing!” Hikari exclaimed.
She twirled around with her arms high above her head, spinning them off to the side. Suddenly, vibrant little bubbles cascaded down from her hands and enhanced her already good looks.
“There! Now it’s perfect!” Hikari giggled.
