Journal Entry #1 January 16th 1804 6:07p.m
I am Luna E. Clispe, an angel sent to Earth to become a guardian angel to the princess of Avelie, along with my sister Ayna.
I am writing in this journal to show you why I never made it to her...
Ayna and I walked the streets of the oriental city.
The men wore work clothing while the women wore kimonos.
"Luna," Ayna caught my attention through mind talk, a power only angels and vampires have to communicate.
"Yes Ayna?" I answered.
"Why are these people staring at us?"
"We're strangers, Ayna. It's been awhile since you've been down here." I smiled.
She smiled back at me.
Suddenly, there was noise coming from the street in front of us.
Screaming, crashing, wood breaking.
I also smelled fire...
"Run!" A man as he ran inbetween us.
"Why are you running?" I questioned the man when I grabbed him by the shirt collar.
"A giant fox! It's storming through the city like thunder!" the man answered when looked back at the street.
We had a visual...
Not only was it a giant fox, it was also a fire elemental.
"We gotta do something!" Ayna suggested when she summoned her weapon.
She was about to run, but I stopped her.
"We don't know of it's weakness, going in a fight without a plan is a result of failure." I warned.
"Common sense says we kill it with water." Ayna retorted.
She wasn't always an angel who follows the plan nor was the responsible one.
"It's a lot complicated than you think. I've heard of these. They can't keep still for even a minute." I explained.
"Hey strangers!" A young girl's voice called for us as she stood at the door.
"You better get in here, that thing destroys everything in it's path." she explained when we turned around once again.
It was getting closer with every step it took.
"I'll freeze it's paws, you must tie a rope around them so it won't escape. After that, we tip over that water tower over ther." I explained the plan when I summoned my own weapon, a shield with saw blades inside it.
Ayna summoned a rope using her staff.
"Are you two kitsune?" a woman asked.
"No," I replied, "We're the opposite."
We charged at the giant fox.
I only hoped this plan would work.
I threw my weapon near the fox's paw, freezing it in it's place.
I repeated the same thing for the other paws until the fox couldn't.
But I knew fire was resistant to ice, so the fox won't stay there for long.
That's why I needed Ayna to tie the rope around the legs.
"Ayna, the fox won't stay in the ice for long. It's your turn!" I yelled as she nodded.
The ice was breaking as we speak.
Ayna ran around the fox as fast as she could, leaving a trailing of rope behind her.
Soon as Ayna was finished, she tied the rope and pulled on it to make it tighter.
I assisted her.
"Those strangers need help!" a man yelled as he ran towards us and grabbed the rope.
Soon more people helped.
The heat from the fire fox made me sweat, and making me lose my grip, but Ayna didn't sweat, I know that because she controls the element of fire.
"I'll get to the water tower, you just keep pulling." I ordered as I grabbed my shield and ran for the water tower.
I cut each of the stands keeping it up and afterwards the tower slowly fell to the side where thw fox was.
"Go!" Ayna yelled as she and the people let go of the rope and ran out of the way.
The firefox met it's doom.
The tower crashed into the inferno animal, and with the crash tore a hole in where the water was kept and it poured over the animal.
It crashed against a tall worship temple, tipping it over and a building where people lived.
It was nothing more than ash and dust.
Ayna and I used our powers to bring back up the temple and fixed the walls of the buildings due to our battle.
The people cheered for our valiant effort.
But the girl that stood at the door at the beginning of the battle stood up to us, with a warning.
"This battle might not be over," she warned as Ayna looked at me with a shocked expression on her face, "Fire foxes are controlled by kitsune, female fox vampires. If anyone had the wits to kill their pet, they will come after you for revenge."
The people suddenly looked at one another with frightened looks.
"How do you know this?" I asked.
"This was a legend, going back to a thousand years ago..." she began to explain.
"There was a samurai, and there was a fox just like this one, only as swift as the wind.
As we all know, the samurai defeated the fox.
The next day however, the samurai's wife died with mysterious bite marks on her neck.
He swore revenge against whoever killed her.
That was the last time anyone heard from the samurai. Some say he gone mad or disappeared."
"So you're saying that this kitsune will be coming after us?" Ayna question.
"I believe so..." the young girl answered.
I looked to my right at the sunset.
"We came all the way here from where we live, and we have nowhere to take shelter for the night." I explained.
"You can stay at my house for the night." the girl offered when she grabbed my hand, dragging me with her.
