Downtown Fairy Tale (DTFT)
Prologue: What do you want? Wealth? Power? Glory? Beauty? Fame? or vengeance... You will find it in the Millennium if you dare.

Chapter 1: The goblin who dared to return to Middville
It was 9.00pm in the suburb area of New York, the street cats and stray dogs patrolled the seedy alley under the dim street lamps, the rats scurried pass the sleeping hobo as an april wind blew down the alley. It started as an easy breeze as passed, soon it was changing into an strong wind which began to settle at a spot, the night sky began to turn cloudy and flashes of lightning sparked as the stars were nowhere to be found, it looked as if an heavy rain was coming but no it was something worse than that. The wind grew stronger as it blew violently in the alley and all creature that was living scampered of the place,a circulation of wind on sky above the alley began to form into a strong vortex sparking out lights, papers, trash and all other light matters flew to the center vortex in the sky as it blew faster and violently. Suddenly it exploded in the loud bang of a shotgun, like rain debris began to fall. In a loud thud a body also fell from the sky, he stood up slowly as he groaned from the impact from the fall, he noticed that he was naked though covered in smoke and ash, coughed and stretched his body which produced cracking sound all over... then he flexed his tail.
Though he was naked he set to duty for he was in the human realm, his end was a 7 metre long scorpion tail with which he used it sting to cut himself on the harm, his blood was like that of humans as which he used to paint a circled chain around himself, then he inscribed a runic symbol with the same blood within the circle. When he finished knelt down inside the circle, his body illuminated under full moon as he was revealed to have the form of a young man with a scorpion tail, he raised his chest which bore a large tattoo a black chain formed in circle, same as he had drawn on the ground. The freedom ritual began.
He recited runes, as he did the texts glowed, every word he said illuminated in bright gold light, he said these unknown words in runic a language extinct from the human race, from afar you could see lights glowing from circle. At the final stage of the ritual, he took a long sharp shard of broken glass a stabbed himself at the centre of circled chain tattoo which was his heart... he screamed in great pain as his eyes gleamed, this pain was beyond the stab it was worse than an hot dagger in the heart, it was the price of freedom. The wind blew violently and the lightnings flashed again, his voice began to turn hollow from the effect of the spell and as it ended... the pain stopped and everywhere began calm, breathing heavily and tired from ritual, he examined his chest and tattoo was gone so was everything he had inscribed on the ground, then he vomited a black chain which slithered like a snake and he began to cough out smoke
He stood up not minding his naked body, as he overlooked the city from afar and smiled... Karlz the goblin was free and he back in Midville the land of humanity.

Chapter 2: Snow white with a purple hair
Charlene entered the Daily Smiles convenience store around 8.am carefully, she had practiced these scene several times to perfection , she walked passed the unsuspicious guard who was sipping his coffee and headed to the fat cashier who was having a chat on the desktop computer, the man hadn't noticed Charlene's presence nor what was to befall him. "Um...excuse me" she said in her clear alluring voice, the cashier abruptly interrupted, though his eye still on system answered"yeah? just a sec" he clicked his mouse and lifted his eyes to see the costumer with such a sweet voice,Charlene did not look like what the man had expected; she had a short purple dye hair which looked similar to that of Katy perry , she was dressed in a black punk themed Jacket and provocative mini skirt which brought out the shape of her nice hips and revealed her attractive long legs in which she covered in a transparent fishnet, her skin was pale and flawless ( that bore her the moniker "snow white"wink her nicely shaped lips were painted with a dark purple lipstick and she wore a pair loop earrings, she resembled the walt disney snow white with her beautiful blue eyes but the cashier wondered if she was some harlot then he said "if you want to buy some cigarette or alcohol go to another store, we don't sell those here". That was a rude and quick judgment. "Not that silly, I'm just sixteen" charlene giggled revealing her white teeth, then she lower lowered down the table close to the man revealing her ample breast and whispered "I just need a credit card... please" her eyes became so innocent. This request was so silly for the man laugh"whose credit card?" he asked questionably, "Elvis Coleman" charlene answered back, "huh, did you just call me? where did you get my..." Charlene giggled and said pointing at his uniform ID " that's on your ID silly" infuriated on how this lady had got him he removed his glasses" look young lady, use your credit card if not use your money to buy what you want here, if you don't have any of these we have a 24 hour active exit door for leaving because I won't give you my credit card" he put on his specs again, faced his computer and continued what he was doing "please if you excuse me, customers are waiting and I have a report to finish".
Charlene had her chance, she prepared herself, in a flash of light she poked her purple nail gently to his forehead,the man was amazed the suddenly he felt frozen... Charlene,s eyes widened and her iris glowed brighter, this was her power. <Scan> she said in the thought, suddenly she had entered the mind of Elvis Coleman, the cashier of Daily Smiles . She searched his thought, his memory, his imagination as they all flashed, then she came across his last memory... before she entered the store, Elvis was viewing a porn on computer staring his fantasy Jesse Jugs while pretending to be working. "Jesse jugs" Charlene thought.<Manipulate>
Elvis free from his trance found himself in room, well furnished and scented with vanilla perfume, candles were decorated everywhere and a sensuous romantic music took the back ground. "Elvis you're awake" a sexy feminine voice called, a attractive lady in a lingerie came to him, her hair was blonde and wavy as they moved as if they were blown by the wind, she was gorgeous enough to make a man fall on his knees but the best part of her was her 4DD big breast, bigger than that of the purple haired brat he though he had met at work, this lady was the woman of his dreams Jesse jugs. "This must be a dream, how did I get here? How did you even know my name?" Elvis asked sweating,Jesse came closer, her perfume became stronger" what Elvis? i always knew you liked me, every morning at work you pretended to file reports, meanwhile you watched me" then she kissed him with a red stained lip, that kiss was like an electric shock on Elvis "I love fat brave men who wear uniforms and wear glasses, they are sooo soft and fluffy to touch" said the porn star as she unbuttoned his shirt and caressed his big belly" " this can't be happening, you can't be real I was at work minutes ago... Elvis wanted to stand up, "oh my gosh Elvis are calling me fake, you're gonna make me cry" Jesse voice became teary "please don't cry I know you are real and I always liked you" Elvis begged "bbbuttt I..." Jesse snapped in, "but what big boy? if you love me give me your credit card first" and Elvis did. Jesse noticed his erection rising, and she removed her lingerie smiling seductively, and revealing her bouncy tits, "you big bad boy, now I'm gonna eat you" she said unzipping his trouser which revealed his straight strong thing, opening her mouth she began...
Back in the real world...
Charlene used the credit card to purchase every cake and candy in Daily Smiles she had a notoriously sweet tooth at least, she came back to the cashier's table of whom she had put under an illusion. Everyone gathered at cashier who was now wearing only a boxer with manhood poking out was caressing his body as he moaned like someone enjoying oral $ex from an invisible porn star , suddenly the manager came out to see the cause of the commotion, he tapped and woke Elvis(someone had even offered to call a phychriatic hospital or an exorcist) but to no avail, his mind was somewhere else. The manager checked his computer and saw that Elvis had been logged to an adult site online, Charlene was amazed by her handiwork dropped his credit card which was now empty, everyone was watching the cashier embarrass himself, some filmed it and posted it online while mothers covered the child's eyes.
Charlene humming with a lollipop in her mouth carrying four heavy bags of cakes and candies walked pass the unsuspicious guard as he sipped his sixth coffee, when she got to the middle of the street she closed her eyes and snapped her fingers<release>. Elvis the cashier was brought back to reality to face trouble.
Unknown a scorpion tailed fellow entered Daily Smile convenience store to steal some clothes...

Chapter 3: Valykries
In the ancient time of fetishism, people communicated with the gods with the help of a special order of priestess known as Valykries, these women had the power to read the thoughts and memories of people and erase them if necessary, in the era of the gods they were the link to the nine celestial worlds, they acted as judges, spiritual leaders, healers,exorcists. They were also known as witches, shamans, sorcerers of the old world.
Charlene Nicket was one of them, she had an had time accepting her identity from a lineage of Valykries. When other little girls were told fairy tales of pretty princesses and handsome princes in white horses her granny told her stories of old gods and their deeds, elves, giants, nine dimensional worlds etc as her bedtime story,at the age when girls had romantic feelings,she had witnessed pigeons arguing amongst themselves, when other girls got their first kiss Charlene had mastered her powers.
Like every Valykrie before her, she could enter peoples minds and read their thoughts, their imaginations, their memories, their fears, she manipulate peoples memories and create illusions out of their minds via touch just like the case of Elvis, but unlike her ancestors she loved to create mischief with her powers and abuse them. Charlene got home and dropped her bag. Her house as usual smelt of strong perfumed incense every were was decorated with antique furnitures and weird flowers her grand mother grew, everywhere was illuminated by a multi colored disco ball . "welcome dearest" her grandmother greeted from the small kitchen "how was your day?" she continued, "fine granny" Charlene answered as she bumped tiredly on the cushion. Unlike most grandmothers who were old,fat and wrinkled, Mrs La Toya Nicket was the opposite, though she was in her late sixties, she looked thirty years younger her young look and strength made people doubt her real age she was the older version of her grand- daughter, donning an hair style of the 80's which was dyed blue, she applied a thick set of make up on her face which were all blue colored together with her blue eyes and pale skin, her body was slender for her age and small breast sagged a little, her stylish blue gown helped to conceal that, just like Charlene she was beautiful and eccentric at the same time.
"I was baking some lemon pie in the kitchen minutes ago. Well young lady did you learn anything in school today?did you make new friends today? I bet was fun" La-Toya said as she sat close to Charlene sipping a strange herbal tea and holding a cigarette in the other hand, Charlene rolled her eyes and responded "yeah, not too fun granny" "I see" La-Toya looked at her grand-daughter "maybe casting illusion on people during their work time is more fun" "huh?" Charlene made a surprised looked to her grand mother who puffed some out some smoke and showed her a newspaper with which the headlines read: POSSESSED SEX OFFENDER MASTURBATES AT WORK TODAY",
"Awww...how cute" Charlene giggled, "not cute" LaToya retorted back and continued "you put that man under an illusion this morning and used his credit card, now your action has caused him his job and reputation, news like this spread..." Charlene cut in " hey hey I didn't cast a spell on that man, he was gent enough to borrow me his credit card" "don't lie to me, I can read lies and truth as far your memories from miles away" Her grandmother's iris glowed. Charlene knew she had lost, sometimes she failed to remember that her granny had an higher level of power, while she had to be in physical contact with a person use her power, LaToya just merely glanced at a person to enter their mind." Okay I did... it is his fault for being such a pervert in the beginning, he may look like some harmless worker but he had tons of pornographic images in his head like a love-vendor". LaToya shaked her head in disapproval "but still that does not give you enough reason to abuse your power on a human", Charlene giggled and said" hey hey hey, why are you blaming me? If he wasn't so bleeped up I would have used a better illusion... you know we are what we think", " dearest I have warned you more than countless stars not to abuse your powers, it is a gift from the gods" LaToya retorted again , Charlene stood up in anger " what gods? they don't exist ! why do we put our faith on groundless facts , goblins, giants, elves, monsters... they are not real! She paused"the only thing close to your magical tales are our powers"
As she stormed to her room which was as usual messy, this was a topic she hated mostly, if gods existed maybe she wouldn't have been a loner, her parent would have been alive. LaToya knocked at her door not for invitation but for attention, "I know we've had some rough times but listen to me, yesterday night I felt a strange sensation it was like as if the gate of hell was forced open in a whim, I just want to tell you to be careful" no response came
Charlene put on her purple headphones listening to punk rock music, she remembered a story her granny once told her it was about the mighty tower of heaven or modernized as the millennium tower were the gods always gathered together to decide the fate of the nine worlds, legend says that anyone who climbs the top of the tower shall have his all his wishes come true. Sometimes Charlene dreamt of flying to the millennium tower on a giant pigeon... if only the supernatural existed. The young valykrie slept off.

Chapter 4: A New Student.
School was boring for Charlene, though she was not academically inclined she was one of the best smartest students in her class all thanks to her powers. When it was time for exams she scanned the memories of what the class aces had studied and used it get her A's , once her classmate had annoyed her when it was a day to the promotional exam she erased all what the person had suffered to study from the memory. Charlene knew everyone's dark secret, nothing could be hidden from her she the principal cheated on his wife with a parent, she knew that the captain of the male basketball squad was gay, she knew that the pretty queen bee of the class was once an obese child, she knew the principal's sexy secretary was a transexual, she knew the chemistry teacher was a drug addict... all these many ugly secrets yet people loved to act perfect and hypocritical.
Today was going to be different nobody to her and she didn't know. The homeroom teacher mr Howl walked inside with him was a thin boy who was quite short for his age, he wore a grey wolf hooded fur jacket which seemed too big for him, his hair was honey-brown and his eyes were green and dull,Mr Howl started " Attention students, we have a transfer student here, with me is Bob Orion from Alaska" everyone giggled at his name except Charlene who was lazily chewing a purple bubble gum, mr Howl continued " now Orion will be here for sometime with us, so be nice to him" he turned to Orion who had not made any sound or movement since. Orion was shown his seat which was at the back of the 5th role, he just sat down.
Something seemed funny about Orion, it was strange for a transfer student to be admitted at the middle of the term and from no other place than Alaska which was journeys away from New York , during the first three days of his stay he neither talked nor smiled at any one, he had a plain cute face which were always emotionless, the only distinguishing feature about him was his wolf hooded fur coat which reminded one of a viking. It was Charlene's culture to scan the mind of new students and know more about them even their ugliest secret. It was during break Orion was eating alone in the class since he didn't make use of the cafeteria services in the school,in her gay cheerful manner she went to meet Orion. "Hi" she greeted, Orion looked up not expecting anyone to disturb him especially a purple haired female punk with a radiant smile "my name's Charlene Nicket , I'm your classmate and what's your name?" Orion looked at her for moment and said" I know your name is Charlene Nicket, that you are my classmate and the teacher mentioned my name last time" he concluded and continued eating what turned out to be cucumber sandwich " how rude" charlene thought and she began her process. she touched Orion on the forehead as her iris glowed <scan> suddenly she felt a n electric shock on her brain followed by a loud screeching sound in her head,it was so loud that she had to cover her ears, Orion looked at her with his emotionless eyes and continued to eat not minding her plight, after school she tried to scan him again but she hindered by sound anytime she did it, at the end she had an head ache . It was now evident to her that Orion Bob was the first person who was immune to her powers, she now feared the new student who came Peachtown high school .

Chapter 5: Essence of Darkness
Doug Dalings the official thief of the school had a custom for stealing from new students and Orion was going to be his new target. He unzipped Orion's backpack, to his dismay it was the usual items;books and books, suddenly strange object rolled out. It was like a tennis ball with lots of spikes all over it, he looked at it for a while" maybe its some kinda toy" Doug thought, then he pressed it not minding the spikes it was made of a rubber like material suddenly one of the spikes emitted a strange fume on him. Doug began stink that he coughed, the odor was so bad that he almost vomited, he smelt worse than a rotten copse "aww shit! come on! " Doug cried and then he removed his jacket to cover his nose " man I smell worse than pig shit!!" he looked at the ball and threw it on the wall with much impact but all the remaining spikes on the tennis ball oozed out more bad smelling fumes which then filled the school hall, between the he and hall doug didn't know who smelt worse. On the wall a portal dimension of another world began to open and a creature emerged out of it. It was a giant three headed praying mantis , it was 15 foot tall and it had a forest green color, each head had a pair of brooding yellow eyes and long piercing fangs , its claws were long and sharp ready to tap blood. The monster stared at Doug ready for a kill, knowing that he was bigger trouble than bad smell he ran for his life but the monster had a lean body which made it fast in movement, Doug reached his death before he knew it, in a flash of light the monster reached its prey plunged its claw into his heart... Doug had his last breath in eighteen years while the three headed monster had its first human meal in six hundred years.
Meanwhile the stench emitting from the essence of darkness had spread through out the school, Orion perceived the smell of darkness and he knew something needed to be done.

Chapter 6 : Orion;A god amongst men
The whole school began to smell like dumpsite, students could not learn under this condition as some began to vomit especially girls "eww Bleep! what's this!" some exclaimed, this alerted the attention of the principal who ordered the janitors to trace the source of the smell.
For the first time in her life Charlene had never had such a feeling in a long time, something was odd with that boy. Anytime he was around she always seems to feel his presence, not only that... she could not enter his head, Charlene was in the female restroom when she perceive the strong rotten odor, instead of disgust she showed fear for she could feel something bad was lurking around.
Mr Tobias, the head janitor limped to the basement in order to trace the smell , had it been a corpse, he wondered . Alas he was right there was a corpse, a body which once belonged to a student layed there soaked in blood. To his greatest horror the killer had chopped of its arm,head and the entire intestine other parts of the body had massive bite marks all over, he exclaimed " good Jesus!!!" The odor which extended to the basement made him not to think well as he staggered whether to call the principal or the police or even an ambulance. Lurking behind him was his would be killer as it walked silently to its second prey, a late intuition alerted him to turn back, as he did he lost his voice to horror for it was the first and last time he would ever see such a creature.
As Charlene walked out of the rest room she heard a scream. She traced the voice to the chemistry lab, no one was alive, a whole class was massacred in an ugly manner body parts scattered everywhere, half eaten bodies. The classroom was painted in a new color. Blood. Thegirl who had screamed fainted, charlene wanted to join her but she summed up courage and vomited in nearby waste bin, whether it was the purgent odor of the severed corpses that made her vomit it was not clear. She knelt down to girl who had fainted and touched her forehead as and her eyes glowed <scan> she entered the girl's memory and charlene saw what the girl had seen; class 6B were conducting a test on chemical diffusion when a strange creature, a large praying mantis taller than a normal human jumped into the class, it had three heads. Everyone screamed as it went for the teacher who was the tallest person around and eating him up. The scene was to gory to continue that she had to stop, in a second thought charlene the touched the girl's forehead <erase> she had erased the girl's memory of witnessing some of her friends and classmate killed by a monster.
The girl woke up suddenly, feeling confused she looked around and collection of corpse in the chemistry lab were she came to learn, she screamed and let go her grip from Charlene whom she thought was the killer, a message soon came out of the school sound system from the hallway telling all students to evacuate the school. The girl ran through the hallway as Charlene tried to tell her to stop and listen, as if fate had planned it insect monster jumped from the ceiling where it had hiding and chased the girl. She was fat so her predator caught her in no time, it sliced of her head with one swing from its claw and its three head faced her fat body to devour it. This was the first death charlene had witnessed in her life, she wanted to scream but a spine chilling terror had seized her voice as she saw the girl's lifeless head roll on the school's tile.
A gunshot interrupted the creature from enjoying its meal one of its head turned to see were the sound came from. Jachary Dale the old bus driver loaded his shotgun ready for another shot he positioned his arm and said " you ain't touchin' nobody you demon" like regular a praying mantis the creature sprinted to the ceiling running upside down, Dale aimed his gun up and started shooting, the bullets only made holes on the ceiling. The monster was fast and flexible dodging every bullet. Suddenly it jumped down using its long sharp claw to pin Dale to the wall with his heart. That was the second death Charlene witnessed.. now it was her turn.
In action movies if a person with super powers was being threatened he used his power to defend himself, but not her type of powers. As the giant insect raced towards her she grabbed a fire extinguisher strapped by the wall a released it on the creature,it shrieked and fell, in a burst of excitement charlene scampered away to the backyard exit. The monster got up on its insect feets and chased after her, now they were in the open space outside the school building, she could run or maybe try to create an illusion if possible. " Do not worry yourself fair lady I will take it from here" a voice called out . It was the new kid Orion he was sprinkling a sparkling light blue powdery substance in the air as he walked, she noticed the pungent odor was dissolving into sweet scented atmosphere with him was a golden colored baseball bat he did not show worry, fear or anything, is he crazy or what? Charlene wondered
"Stand back" Orion said again as he set his bat like someone ready swing a ball. "What are you doing? You're gonna die!" She warned but the boy did not respond back. The monster shifted its attention towards Orion as it was prepared to kill him.
As the mantis raced to meet him Orion still stood there preparing his bat to aim. He said these words:
I am stronger than I look
I am faster than I think
I am wiser than I imagine
In a speed light Orion rushed towards the monster also, getting close to mantis he swung his bat with such superhuman force. It sent the monster flying towards the endless sky like a catapult. The creature that terrorized the school had been defeated. To charlene everything turned black... This was her first experience with the supernatural

Chapter 7: Life Insurance Ain't For Fools
In a bar down town
he street Elvis Coleman drank himself to despair, he had lost his job, his reputation,his pride and his manliness. Unfortunately he was not an heavy drinker hence he was able to get drunk with just three bottles of beer. Too bad for him again he credit card was empty, his attention was suddenly drawn to a news flash,it was a breaking news about a massacre that claimed the lives of students and staffs of an highschool and the case of purple haired girl called Charlene. This news did not concern him, his problem was worse than theirs.
As he was about to pay for his drink a gentleman called the bartender " mister I will pay for the gentleman's drink, bills and broken bottles are on me" Elvis looked at the person who had offered the to reduce his bills " thanks" he managed to talked though his breath now stenched alcohol, the gentleman smiled and said"no problem my good man" the gentleman had a pure British accent a refined and educated one, he was dressed in a corporate black suit buttoned, he looked neat businesslike and someone who had cash. His person did not fit this kind of sleazy place, the gentleman offered his hand for a shake and said" hello mr Coleman
Elvis it is nice meeting you" Elvis looked at the man, he looked young and handsome and well fed with a pleasant smile on his face, the he looked at the man's hand which revealed his gold wristwatch and he too released his arm for a shake, the young man's hands were cold. "Do I know you?" Elvis asked questionably then the man laughed heartedly and said " my clients call me the Manager" " why ?" Elvis asked again. " You don't need to know my name but what I can do for you" the manager gave him a business card which read " DISWORLD INSURANCE" only no name no address, no other information just the firm's name, " I ain't buying insurance" Elvis concluded, the manager laughed again" mr coleman, I'm not selling insurance to you, I'm offering insurance to you" he sighed and continued "look around you mr coleman, mockery everywhere what is right about this reality we are in? But at DisWorld Insurance we are here to set things right for our clients" Elvis looked at him suspiciously " but I can't pay pension I'm out of a job" the manager smiled and exclaimed" exactly! We are no ordinary insurance firm, we set out for the jobless, the sick, the wronged ones..." With his refined british accent and soothing voice the manager knew he was going to get a new client. " Hey I guess you were not listening to me I can't pay for your special insurance" Elvis said, "and I guess you've not been listening to me too, I'm offering you insurance not selling".
Throughout the discussion the manager never took a sip from a beer " look, at DisWorld, our customers are the pension and the profit. Just imagine a world without pain, hunger,poverty,disease, a life the gods could not offer... We at DisWorld are trying to create that" the manager extended his ballpoint pen, his voice became serious" I will ask you again, are you with us to create a better life for you mr coleman" "yes, I'm in" elvis agreed . The Manager brought out document it contained every information about elvis or rather his life's history till this minute, he gave elvis the document before he could sign , the manager asked" mr coleman, what do you want in life,money? Love?,happiness?" Elvis looked around and said" fame. I always wanted to be famous" the manager adjusted his tie and smiled " you will have it...soon. Elvis signed the document without giving it a second thought. Thank you for choosing DisWorld "They shook hands . The deal was done. In a space of seconds, the movement of the nine worlds along the millennium tree paused and moved again as if nothing happened. The gods approved.
Elvis began to feel strange, his chest began to itch, he began loose weight and potbelly disappeared, he lost 100 pounds and he became slender. His facial hairs disappeared and so did his manly body hairs, his hair began to grow longer and blonde. His itching chest grew into a pair of large female breasts, seeing this he screamed... to his horror his voice became feminine and high pitched and hips grew feminine. He looked at his hands, they had grown smaller and smoother like that of a woman(his nails grew longer and were painted pink) his lips became fuller and were painted with red lipstick. His legs became hairless, slim and shapely. He felt his greatest toy, his manhood shrink into a vagina. He became terrified.
His cloth changed from a dirty tee shirt and jean to a skimpy gown which revealed his large breast, his leather sandals changed into a pair red stiletto and his wristwatch was replaced by a bangle. This is another nightmare he thought as he was transforming into a woman, he turned to the manager for help but instead of seeing a handsome british man in suit, there stood a skeleton in suit polishing its gold watch. Elvis wallet transformed into a white handbag and he brought out a mirror he stared at his face; it was now an oval beautiful face painted in cheap heavy makeup. It was the face of jesse jugs.
Elvis stared at the bar tender who did not notice the changes nor the skeleton, the customers acted as if nothing had ever happened. The manager who was now a skeleton handed him the document which contained his life information now read: JESSE COLEMAN, OCCUPATION: STRIPPER, PORN-STAR, HARLOT. A new history was replaced the old one.
It was hard to know the manager's emotion since he was now a skeleton, he stood up and said in his refined british accent" well miss coleman I can see you love your new reality, now you have the fame you wanted. Well time is never my friend and I have one thousand five hundred and fifty clients in Midworld and Alfworld alone. One again thank you for choosing DisWorld, enjoy your new life miss coleman" the suit clad skeleton stood up and left the bar, no one noticed the odd creature leave.
Jesse coleman still feeling strange with her new body noticed the customers picking lustful glances on her, a bearded muscular man approached her and spanked her ass, she felt sensual ready for sex since her hormones had also been changed to suit her body. Jesse left with the man to a motel to have some fun forgetting that she was once a miserable man called elvis.
A skeleton in a corporate suit entered a limousine, and it left for its next client. Be careful people, the spirit that changes fate and reality is around. His name is the Manager.

Chapter 8: Hangover
Those who say Midworld the human realm is also normal are lying to themselves. There are places amongst us that we have seen but never noticed, a trip there could drive us to insanity.
Charlene woke still feeling uneasy about the massacre, her mind still flashed scenes from the killing, but something else still disturbed her... Where was she?. She found herself in a room, a messy room, a boy's room like one that hadn't been cleaned in decades there were piles of junk food, canned food and half eaten pizzas everywhere, there were tons and super hero comics and video games. The room was fairly big enough and on the walls were posters of superheroes like batman, hulk, spiderman, flash,green lantern, captain america etc. This person must be a nerd, charlene thought. The room was so cold for charlene because she wore a transparent black top which revealed her purple bra, her jacket was nowhere to be found.
Her host she believed sat on a large armchair watching an anime, she couldn't see the person's face, she called out to the person several times but no answer. When she left the room and came out to an hall way, all the doors at hallway were all the same and she a door which was. boldly written "EXIT" at the other end. She got to the exit door hoping to get out of the mysterious place, as she opened the door, she was back to the same room.
It must be kind of joke, she thought. Closing the exit door she move backward were she saw another door with the word EXIT, as the opened the new exit door...she was back to the room, she looked around and she discovered every door at both sides of the hallway had EXIT on them( even the one she first came out of) and each lead her straight to same room. "F*uck", the only thing she could say. When she returned to the room using any door, she saw a new visitor. Not a human, but a giant red squirrel, it was 4ft taller than her and it had a cute face so was hard to know how dangerous it was, the squirrel just stared at her while gnawing a baseball bat.
When the anime ended, her host put off the flat screen TV and the armchair mechanically rotated to her position. Her host was the fattest man she had ever seen, he must over 800lb, he was huger than a sumo wrestler, he had fat cheeks and a large double chin, everywhere on his body jiggled at every movement. He was morbidly obese. The wore a white tee-shirt which wrote" THE ONLY WOMAN, I TRULY LOVED WAS MARRIED AND SHE'S MY MOTHER" with the man was a bird, it looked like a tropical bird, black in color but the most beautiful feature of the bird was its large rainbow colored beak. The man took an handful bite from the potato chips he was holding and said" who the heck are you? Some kinda slut or orion's girlfriend" the man's accent was pure Irish, Charlene then responded "sorry mr big I will be on my way" she saw a door, she opened it... if her second leg had gone outside she would have fallen from the end of a very tall cliff. A voice she recognized called and said " don't mind my uncle Gil fair lady, his body can longer satisfy the need of midworld women" it was Orion standing at the doorway, how did he get in? Charlene thought, Orion introduced his uncle " meet my uncle Gil or rather Gilgamesh the old god of hunting " Charlene was startled, a god?. He then introduced the giant squirrel " this is my pet sneakers, he is a bushy tail not a squirrel" then he snatched his baseball bat from sneakers,then he said to charlene"this is a supernatural realm, welcome to my uncle's quarters the Hangover". He turned to his uncle and said " please uncle do not be vexed, this lady here is Charlene Nicket she is my classmate and a new generation valykrie" " as far she can cook I don't mind" Gil said.
This was all too much for Charlene. A crazy room that has no exit but many doors and connects to a mountain cliff, an obese god, a demi-god and giant squirrel as for a pet. This was truly a supernatural realm, called the Hangover.

Chapter 9: The Gatekeeper
There are two worlds, the spirit world known as Alphworld and the material world Midworld. Alphworld was the home of the gods, the land of the spirits both good and evil, in was also the land of the dead and the dimensional prison known as the Abyssium. The Midworld, the world were we live, was inhabited by all mortal creatures; humans, elves, giants, gnomes, centuars, goblins, and many more( including dragons), the midworld had minor realms occupied by different creatures, eg: land of ice and mist, land of giants, land of scorch and heat, land of elves etc. These two world were held by Millennium tree and were connected by a rainbow bridge for easy crossing. The rainbow bridge was guarded by Hermidall the gatekeeper, a god who was in charge of the entering and exit within the worlds and realms. But urbanization had changed things, with certain laws by the gods it was illegal to enter any realm via dimensions known as wormholes,only through the rainbow bridge was warping( traveling through worlds) allowed.
"Due to your careless a lot of students were killed by a killermoth,is that how a god operates" Gil thundered like a sergeant ordering a recruit, Orion in his calm manner answered" it wasn't my fault uncle, the Essence of Darkness you gave me was diffused by a student cursed with the spirit of greed. Its a sad thing he died but he deserves it" he chewed an apple " besides I annihilated the creature and I took my time to purify the school with fairy-dust". His uncle shaked his large head " I'm not talking about what you did to the monster,but how were you thinking of capturing a goblin with such a bait?" Orion kept quiet, Charlene broke the silence by asking" what's an essence of darkness? Gil explained as he brought out green tennis ball that had spikes all over" this spiky ball is what we call an essence of darkness, it is used as bait to capture monsters and evil spirits. It oozes out a darkness in physical forms like smell. That is why it comes in form of a bad smell, because darkness is evil and it attracts those who are born into it.., I used it to hunt" charlene remembered the bad odor the engulfed the school, that was darkness and that attracted the monster from its realm into her school.
Charlene remembered that she had to go home, " um, look thanks for all the hospitality, how can get out this crazy room I should be going to my grannie's now", "don't worry your grandmother knows you are here... infact she said you should even stay" orion said revealing her already packed luggage all purple. Charlene could not believe her eyes, why would her granny sell her away to these weird people? " hey look I don't understand why am I gonna be staying here, I'm still underage" Orion explained again "she said there certain out-of- normal experience you need for spiritual growth as a valykrie and you need to be able to control you gift, plus with those full lemons on your chest you can't lie that you are underage" charlene became embarrassed when she discovered that Orion, his uncle and the large squirrel were staring at her overly exposed cleavage a sign that her bra had become to small for her enlarging breast. She quickly covered it with her jacket. Gil yawned and said" its more than centuries since i was offered a good sacrifice by a pretty valykrie, so you pretty girl offer me a sacrifice" she looked at orion for an interpretation "he's hungry, just go to fridge and get him some grub"
The fridge was very large, inside it were assortments of things that could make anybody obese for good. Cakes, fries, pizzas, candies, chocolates, soda, different flavors of juice and ice cream, hamburgers, donuts etc, charlene was tempted, but as a girl she was conscious of her weight. Gil ordered 50 pizzas, 20 potato chips and coke which was the size of mini freezer. Orion had 10 burgers and two pineapple juice, the sneakers took a bucket of ice-cream of different flavors combined. These people gorged their meal except orion who maintained his manners and ate calmly. Charlene was vexed at her grandmother for making her servant to two perverted gods, their appetite amazed her especially orion who had a thin stature all the food he ate did not show in his body and she too joined them, besides they were not ordinary people.
The name of Gil's rainbow beaked bird was Otto it was a phoenix, a legendary bird that was always reborn through fire, it perched at leftovers of the food, gil's belch was powerful enough to break a super mario figurine. After the meal Gil said" boy the only way I can help you to become a real god is to get you a job" Orion raised hi brow and said " a job?" "yeah, from the financial district in order to catch that goblin" charlene who was listening thoughtfully asked "what goblin?". Gil grunted and explained five hundred years ago an infamous goblin known as karlz robbed the gnome bank... the greatest attempt known till now he sent to the Abssyium, just recently we heard that he broke out, orion here is trying to track him down so that he will earn a favour from the other gods" he finished. " Because of the incident at the school he may have to pay heavily, we'll meet the gatekeeper to take us to the financial district to get a job" noticing gloom in the faces of the adolescents he thundered" if you want anything to work well for you get ready to bleed for it, time for you next generations to show some responsibility... Do you understand!!!" everywhere vibration like an earthquake warning Orion and Charlene shuddered and responded" yes sir!!!".

Chapter 10: King of America
Somewhere far away in Nevada, Karlz was sipping a beer at an abandoned club were a gang always gathered, well today plans had changed... every member of the gang was dead on karlz hand. He sat on one of the corpse humming merrily and licking his blood stained tail, he saw a cigarette but, sniffed at it and chewed it.
Suddenly his shadow shook, he knew his visitor had arrived. The shadow said" you just got out of prison and you've started causing trouble" karlz chucked and answered" it not my fault, they confronted me because I'm a goblin. They wanted hurt my feelings" he broke the bottle on the corpse's head "but unfortunately I've got none". Goblin as we all know are mischievous creatures, they resembled humans except that they had long scorpion tails. " Hey looked because you were released from jail and wailers can't track you down, doesn't mean you are off the water. This place is crawling with gods and some really strong people" the shadow warned " like who?" Karlz asked, another shadow slithered like a snake from the darkness and answered "like a kid called Orion, he is an half-god half-human breed, he's looking for you" Karlz rubbed his spiky hair and asked again "how strong?" "Incredibly strong, he clobbered a killermoth that attacked his school"the second shadow answered again. The goblin only laughed and said "let him be god or a giant, no torment is as worse as a wailer's cry". Wailer's were some of the spirits of the innocent were murdered, dishonored, raped before their death, these spirit did not find rest and justice after death, so they cried and wailed. They are put in the Abyssium to torture the prisoners with their cries, which were very demoralizing.
Business began, "so your boss wants me to work for him" karlz asked "yes he was responsible for your breakout and removal of the abyss seal from you. He is the one true king of America" the shadows said as they changed form and continued "our boss wants to wage a great war. He has heard of your exploits, he wants to gather an army, you can help to create a spell that will release every prisoner from the Abyssium". " For free moving spirits like you both to support this king must be worth it,but in order to release billions from such a place and make them your army you need finance" karlz said. "Our leader is mighty rich he rules many countries in Midworld..." "No no no my shadow friends, I meant real cash the type all gnome banks put together cannot give you. Look to conscript a very large army, your king wants to build a seal that will break free everyone trapped in the Abyssium and let them into his army, that's expensive, he needs money from the financial district to do that, do you know what I will do? I will team up with the best resources to get me the money and eureka! we go!" Karlz explained. The shadows were silent and he continued "don't worry tell your king that I going all over to get the best team for the mission, he broke me out of hell and he will triumph"
The meeting was over. Karlz had not agreed to support this infamous king because he was grateful, it was because of an incoming war and he wanted to be part of it. This was a good way begin chaos after five hundred years in prison. This king of America was an interesting bastard, he thought.

Chapter 11: The Gatekeeper part 2
Gil was a very large man, he was as wide as he was tall. He wore a batman tee-shirt a baggy jean and a face cap decorated with a pair of elk horns, charlene was surprised that clothes could fit him. He thundered towards the door and said "get ready kids we are warping outta here" "how are getting out of these crazy room" charlene asked then Orion said in a voice which meant he was bothered"observe more, ask less".
As he got to the door, he said "HGBRASSR!!" a word character appeared on the door, it glowed in a red color and it was not written in any language known to humans. The hunter god finished as he opened the door and they stepped outside, they were not in an hallway full of the same doors but rather the alley of Stevenson street, the neighboring street to were charlene lived. " How did you do it!!" she was amazed, Gil explained "I live in a secured mini dimension, people must know a where I'm staying. From outside this door in the human realm is a door to a little storehouse down the alley" he closed the door and opened it again it was an old and tiny storehouse were old cleaning equipment were kept not a room anymore. "You see but in another way round it is also the domain of I Gilgamesh" he closed the door and said"HGNORDRIL!!" a word written in the same language as before appeared on the door. When he opened the door again the Hangover, the room were they left was there again. "In order to access the Hangover you need a password kind of entry,'Hgbrassr' is the word used to go out there into the outside world while 'Hgnordril' is used to enter my domain. This does not affect the normal people who come to this door for their normal business as far as they don't know these words". "What of those strange chinese letters that appear on the door anytime you say the pass?" Charlene asked, Gil laughed or rather roared and said" oi lady that's Runic, a tongue not spoken often amongst humans. It was the first language used for communication before people began to create their own, still spoken in Alphworld till now. I hope you learn it as a valykrie" he paused and continued "now young ones we must hurry, the gatekeeper hates lateness"
It was 10.clock evening when they left, people who passed the street stared at strange trio. Charlene knew these streets well, who would have known that powerful gods like Gilgamesh the god of hunting and Hermidall the gatekeeper lived in this part of the world, let alone an half-god who was her classmate. They got a place well known by everyone in Applelawn town; Hearmis Bar. Unlike regular night bars, this one was known to keep the law regarding alcohol consumption, the owner and at the same time bartender mr Hearmis never sold alcohol to anyone below eighteen, he could tell anyone's age by merely looking at them even if you sprouted beards or looked older than thirty he could know if you are underage, again Hearmis never allowed people to get drunk in his bar, if you would were a married man he won't let you buy more than three bottles and he wouldn't let you stay as long as three hours, he would chase you out to meet your family, he never allowed whores into his bar and finally he sold the best of the best: whiskey, gin, vodka, champaign, wine, mead... he had the best quality of alcohol any man in the suburb of New-York could find. Everyone thought that his honesty to his trade would lead to its downfall but rather it attracted more customers,he had good business management skills, decent costumers who wanted to drink without any tout or drunk disturbing them, Hearmis Bar was far the most peaceful bar in Applelawn that even the mayor had a drink with the senator there even the wives were at peace learning their husbands were at Hearmis Bar. Unknown to everyone who knew the cheerful and friendly bartender known as Mr Hearmis, he was Hermidall the gate keeper, guardian of the rainbow bridge, master of keys.
Charlene could feel a strange energy passing through as they neared the bar. Could the gatekeeper be in there? she thought. As they passed a street light they saw a couple kissing passionately under it, suddenly their shadows came alive and left them. " what was that?!" charlene sounded surprised, " don't mind them, those shadows are shadowlings, free moving spirits of bound to Midworld, they have no place nor form so they pose as people's shadows and follow them about"Orion answered
As they got to the bar, they opened the door, the bell at door rang to alert the bartender that there was a visitor. The gatekeeper stood there
"Hermidall" said Gil
"Gilgamesh" said Hearmis.
