PostSubject: Fight or Flight![Closed]   Wed Sep 23, 2009 12:33 pm

Getting his head around the concept of flight was not what anybody would call an easy job. It has been a short time since his release from the prison that had held the serpent demon bound within a small, hidden shrine that had long since been forgotten. The Deep was a vast region, and if he had not freed himself by force of will, he probably would never have been found by any other means. He was still getting use to this human body of his, but as he had seem from other spirits that lingered within the depths, the ability to fly was not as far fetched as one might think.

Of course, doing something like this would greatly improve his ability to get around, as well as provide a sort of edge in combat against those who lacked the skill. Setting himself up on one of the branches of a large tree, he released a deep sigh and let his eyes fall closed momentarily. Come on now. A flying serpent? Doesn't something seem fairly wrong with that concept? The voice within his head never seemed to give it a rest. There always seemed to be a sarcastic remark for just about anything he did. The crimson red eye twitched in agitation, and he tried once more to clear his head. There had to be some way to bring fourth this ability, he just had to figure out how.

Placing a hand on the base of the tree as a balance point, he stood up and looked down to the drop bellow. It was roughly ten meters from the bottom, not exactly a deadly fall. But perhaps the idea of shocking his mind and body into believing it was in danger would be the best way to bring out the hidden talent he desired. Closing his eyes once more, he brought his hands outwards, as if he were going to start flapping his arms and fly like a bird. Releasing the tree, he stepped forward, letting himself leave the safety of the branch to plummet towards the ground...

A loud thud echoed through the forest. A long string of curse words and shouts followed as Maru lay on the ground in a jumbled mess. He had dove, and hit, head first. I told you, not going to happen, idiot. Snakes don't fly unless they are thrown. Lifting himself up from the ground, he brushed off the comment, and then his clothing. He would try once more, but this time from a greater height. Determined to get this done with, he brought himself up the tree even higher, till he was close to the top. The drop was now well over twenty-five meters, and any average human would probably break their neck attempting this. Bringing his hand across his face, he dragged it down slowly as he attempted to compose himself for this.

"This is certainly going to hurt," was the only thing that he said to himself before starting the drop. This time, he did not simply step from the perch, but instead gave it a full forward leap with all his strength. He could feel himself dropping like a rock, his senses told him that the ground was closing in on him.

Twenty meters. Still nothing. Fifteen meters. No, he wasn't flying, but he did feel a sudden rush of adrenaline surging through his body that began to build up a strong energy. Ten meters. He was close to the end of the line, and something had to happen fast. Releasing a loud shout of anger and frustration, he suddenly felt all that energy manifest itself into something that he could use. The stop was sudden, and he was sure he had hit the ground once again.

Well I'll be damned, you actually did it. Good job, dumb ass. He opened one eye, expected it to be close up to a patch of dirt and leaves. Instead, he found himself six meters from the ground, hovering in an awkward sort of state. Behind him, a barely visible pair of wings had formed. They were dark in color, shaped like that of the mythical creature known as a dragon, and not that big. Perhaps they would grow with practice of this ability, or maybe not. Of course, small was not something he would be happy with, but this was progress none the less.

But now came the slightly more difficult part of this quest, getting down. For a few moments, he seemed to be throwing a child's temper tantrum in the air as he tried to bring himself back to earth. Grabbing at the air, it was as if he was trying to swim back to the ground, and yet going nowhere. His eye twitched again, and he once again tried to calm himself down. As his temper eased, he found himself lowering to the ground slowly, to which he finally planted both feet firmly on the solid surface. With a deep sigh of relief, he broke concentration and let the spiritual wings that had grown from his back disappear.

This was going to take a bit of work to perfect... But for now, it would do. The next thing on his to-do list, find out where he was and how to get out.
