Red1263 Posted August 6, 2020 Report Share Posted August 6, 2020 The beginning... Where we last left Red1263, he was attempting to touch his toes while unknowingly being used to become a conduit for Nadia... "That's it! You're doing great!" Nadia exclaims as Red1263 reached over and was able to touch his toes! What he didn't notice was that as he held each pose, Nadia was also following suit and their bodies began to glow brighter as Red1263 finally touched the ground. "OK I'm starting to hear someone, it's... Wait... that's not... right." Nadia's tone suddenly changed from happy to grave. Red1263 was standing there looking concerned but suddenly, a bright light shone upon him, and a deep voice boomed. Loud and deafening like thunder, it spoke "IT BEGINS." Suddenly Red1263 floated in the air for a moment and then disappeared in a flash of light. When he could see again, He finds himself in a dark room but underneath a spot light. Red1263 can tell that there's someone or something watching him. For a moment, Red1263 is waiting for whatever it is to say something, since there was no response he decided to break the silence, "So I take it, you didn't summon me here just for conversation." There was a response, "YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO UNDERGO THE TRAILS OF ORTHOS." Upon hearing the voice a second time, Red1263 could tell that whatever it was that was speaking to him, was big, so it was probably best not to fight them until he knew exactly who or what he was dealing with. "OK. Sooo... Who's Orthos and what's this trail about?" "PREPARE FOR THE TRAIL!" "... Errr yeah, right, of course! I figured that was the point, but what is--" Just before he could finish, a rush of wind circled around him and the spotlight expanded above him, revealing that he was standing in a field, by himself. Taking a moment to gather his surroundings, he has discovered that he's somewhere... new. "Gee thanks. I... guess I'll just take a look around." As Red1263 walked for what seemed like days, he finally sees a house in the distance! As he arrived, he saw a man sitting in a chair reading a paper. Just before Red1263 could say anything, the Man yelled at him! "Well you certainly took your sweet time gettin' here, didn't you?!" Red1263 could only open his dry mouth before the Man continued, "Now we don't have time to waste! You're already behind! Let's get moving!" The Man tossed his paper and started walking away from the home, He was ranting about indiscernible things. When Red1263 finally could get a word in, he rebutted, "Wait, Hold on! Who are you? and what am I doing here?" The Man stopped in his tracks, as if insulted, he turned slowly to face Red1263. His glare turned into a smile that made Red1263 uncomfortable. "I am Orthos. And you, are my new Apprentice." This is it, people! Residency starts now! I have decided to take a Research pathway, which means I have to stay focused on what is expected of me by the powers that be (from here on in, will be referred to as NCOPE). Fulfill the requirements: I have to learn what exactly is expected of me during this, because there are several organizations that are watching me! Per hour exercises: Push-ups, Squats, Dips, Plank, Mountain climber (Now that I'm back with the clinic group, we're going to exercise once again! We're aiming for at least 50 reps a day. Sunflower: Prepare for dates, starting with the 21st. So, I'm actively pursuing this girl, who will be named Sunflower from here on in. She's back home and I'm here so there's a bit of a long distance relationship going on, but it's still new, which means that there are still ways for me to ruin this before it begins! I have to prevent that! Location, Location, Location: I am now in a position to move on my own. It's time and I have the resources, so I'm going to start looking at apartments and start planning my move. 6 Quote Level 25 Final Fantasy Rebel My Epic Quest | My Journey | Currently on the Trial of Orthos Str: 60 | Dex: 23 | Sta: 66 | Con: 28 | Wis: 55 | Cha: 14 Goals for 2021: Spoiler Build my brother a Destiny 2 Lamp Learn how to do a Handstand Play 1 song on the acoustic guitar Clean up the Christmas Decorations and finish setting up my apartment (hang things up, plus some other few things that need to be organized) Re-introduce Pull-ups into my routine Build a shelving unit next to my Desk "No matter what, if you can hold your head up high, you've done the right thing."
