Glancing over to where we heard the voice, we saw another young man bounding over. When he got where we were he gave us a wolfish grin. "I'm going to go and be a legend. You don't have to come if you don't want to. I'll be the one that will be known as the greatest weapon of all. I will only be wielded by the best of the best. Heroes all over that world would line up for me." he declared openly. "There's no way! You're just a dinky little dagger. If you could be a great blade, you'd still never do as well as me." Krit spat in disdain. Ace joined in with his own insult. "Don't think you are better than us because you're not! We're the best this village has to offer." he said. There was another vicious fight. This time it was 4 on 1. However, it was the newcomer that was kicking ass and taking names. He actually beat them all. I was impressed at how ferocious he was. He was a small black dagger. I also got see what type of weapons Ace and Deuce were. Ace was a common garden sickle and Deuce was an ink black spiked ball. They tried their best but were still obliterated. I asked the victor his name.
He said that his name was Shank. That was a pretty good name for a dagger. Shank was still in a state of bloodlust as he launched himself at me. I blocked him and said something to calm him down. "Shank! You already won the fight! We already know that you're top dog. Can we stop now?" I strained as he was pushing me back. As soon as I said that he stopped. He blushed with a look of shock on his face. "Say that again." he demanded. "You already won?" I said, not sure what was going on. He shook his head. "No no no!" he snapped. He increased the pressure on me. "What do you want me to say?" I asked. "Call me that again." he said. "Top dog?" I asked. It seemed that it was correct. He nodded furiously. "You're top dog Shank." I told him. He stopped pushing against me and a smile rose to his face. "I'm top dog, huh!?" he stated. "Yeah! Top dog." he said, tasting how it sounded in his own mouth. He seemed to really like it. "You better respect me, then." he said as he took a step back. I could tell that he was just waiting for me to strike at him in order to destroy me. I did not bite.
If he was hoping to continue the fight, he did not let on. He let his dagger disappear and pointed at the portal. "I'm going through. It's time to begin making a great legend for myself." I asked if we could come along. He looked at me and thought about it. He sighed and said "I'm not sharing my glory with anyone, especially not them. You can come along to watch but stay out of my way." I nodded as I got everyone else up. We got ready to follow him into the portal. Once we got through the other side, I could not see the portal anymore. It truly was only one way. That was fine with me. I wanted to see what this human world looked like and how it operated. We were on a grassy hill overlooking several villages in the valleys. There was a nearby mountain range to the north. I saw a couple of settlements in the mountains as well. Because there were 6 settlements, we would have ample choices for human wielders. We just had to chose somewhere to go. I was going to point it out to them when a battle cry went up. Bandits were going into one of the villages in the valley. The villagers were fleeing.
