    A World of Misfit's. . .

    Post  Shadowstep21 on Fri May 18, 2012 8:01 am

    Shadowstep was a long way from Italy. She didn't care though, she wasn't going back to her father. She stopped long enough to gather that it was two days ago she left, where she was, and enough food for at least two days. She started walking off once more.

    "So Russia, huh?" THe bag over her shoulder's felt heavy. How had she travelled so far in just two days? Probably becuase she was a shadow walker. . .She went off into another shadow and came out farther into Russia. "Greaaat, I am lost." There was a russle in the snow behind her, cuaseing her to turn and look. A Snow Rabbit hopped out from behind. She looked closer at it. It wasn't normal, it was what was called a Jackalope, but it continued. It wasn't furry. It was more like metal threads. She picked it up, "Your a cute little guy huh? I'll call you Jack"
    In response it thumped her hand three times. "Yoe like that don't you little guy?" She scrathed his head, Put him in her Coat pocket and started off again. Hoping that he would run into somebody soon. . .

    She didn't have to wait long. . .

    Shadowstep had only been traveling about an hour when she started feeling something. . .Familiar. . .
    A sense quite like a fellow Shadow-Walker's, but it wasn't.

    It was more humanoid aura, more controled.
    Shadowstep retreated farther back into the comfort of darkness to wait, not expecting to be met with a voice.

    "My my, little spy. Quite interesting, are not thy?" An accented voice chidded.
    She whipped around in the darkness to meet another female, shadowy form. The other shadow offered a thin smile before turning into a more human state.
    "Privejt. Who might you be?"

    Shadowstep felt like she knew her. . .then it hit her. Turns out she did know her.
    "Aya?" The figure looked taken aback
    "How do you know, me?"
    "It's me Shadowstep! The king's daughter. . "
    "Shadow? What are you doing in a place like this?"
    "Getting away from my father. . ." Shadowstep turned away, Even if she was familar with her father, she didn't know what he had done. . . A hand placed on her shoulder. "Is he doing it again?"
    "Not to me. . .to my brother. . ."
    "Where's your brother?"
    "I. . .I told him I would contact him once I was in a safe spot. . .Where we could live. . ."

    The Circus Master said nothing for a moment, just stared up at the darkening sky.

    "Come," she turned and motioned for Shadowstep to follow. "I know just the place for you. . ."

    ~{*}~

    Traveling by shadow, the two quickly arrived at a large campus. On the large, snow covered land stood many a circus tent and few military structures.
    The Circus Master stopped and waved to a guard before leading Shadowstep through the gates.

    Shadowstep quickly followed her, not knowing who anyone was besides the person leading her around. "Circus Master! Hello!" Was something people kept shouting to her, Shadowstep leaned forward and whispered
    "Why do they keep calling you 'The Circus Master'?"
    "I'll tell you later, right now we have to get your brother. . ."
    "Are you sure your willing to take us in?" She smiled, and motioned to the tents.
    "We are like you, Misfit's outcast. All of us, we have made a retreat for those whom are. . .different then those who already are. . ." Shadowstep looked around, she saw Shadow-Walker's like her that her father had outcast because they didn't look like Shadows those who had broken a "law". They glared at her.
    "I think I am going to have to break my father's reputation with them. . ."
    The Master laughed, "They think it's like father like daughter. Your father cast them out, so they will cast you out. It logical. . ."
    Shadowstep shrugged, "I am not him. I have my own life and I will make my own reputation!"

    Aya nodded, opening a canvas to a tent and ushering Shadowstep in.

    "They will understand in time, my friend. . . Ah, here we are."
    The two stopped infront of a dark haired girl with headphones She looked normal enough, human enough, for Shadowstep.
    But she knew better than to judge by looks.

    The girl looked up and saluted. "'Evening, Circus Master."
    "Pleasent evening, Mirage. Our newest member and I came to ask a favor of you. . ."

    Mirage instantly got to her feet, nodding. "Casting, glinting, or contacting?"

    "Contacting"

    "Understood."

    Mirage reached into a leather bag strapped to her and drew out an Obsidian mirror.
    "Here."

    They both looked at her. "What?"
    "You said you need your brother here right?"
    "Yes. . .You mean now?!?"
    Aya nodded and handed her the mirror.
    "Umm, How does it work?"
    "Your father never taught you how to use one?"
    "No. . .he thought i would try to escape. . ."

    The Circus Master laughed softly but nodded her understanding.

    "It is rather simple, just focus your energy into this obsidian mirror. It will connect with your ability to Shadow travel and return him here. . .Understand?"

    Shadowstep nodded and closed her eyes, forcing her energy to the mirror.
    For a painfully long moment, nothing happened.
    Very suddenly though she felt a sharp metalic taste in her mouth and opened her eyes, the surface of the mirror was changing,
    opening to reveal a form.

    She looked closer at the form, "Cresent!" The figure look around, "Shadow?" Shadowstep felt an over coming joy, then she felt sick to her stomach. She closed and opened her eyes. Cresent was standing beside her. Aya and the other one looked stunned.
    "Did she just?"
    "Yes. . .Yes she did. . ."
    "What?"
    "You just let a Non-Shadow being, Shadow travel, only extremely EXTREMELY talented Shadow-Walker's can do that. . ."

    The Circus Master lay her hand on Shadow's shoulder.
    "I am most impressed."

    She turned her green eyes on the young boy that now stood, dazed and confused.
    "Privejt, My friend. . ."

    "Now that the family is here! Welcome! Welcome!"
    "Where am i Shadow?"
    "I don't know"

    He blinked. "We are at the circus?"

    Aya laughed softly, "Not just a Circus. . You have been welcomed into the exclusive family of the Underground Circus."
    A movement from the front of the tent caught the Circus Master's eye.

    "Ah, the two of you must be so weary from your ordeal. Come, I shall get you both a meal."
    With that, she turned on her heals a strode off.

    THey followed her, having no idea what may lay instore. They went out of the tent and almost walked across the entire "Circus" Grounds. People walked up and said hello others turned the other wing and completely ignored them. Shadowstep even heard some kids mutter under their breath. "Where's her eyes?", "What is she?", "Did you hear? They said she got that guy with her here by magic!"
    Shadowstep was becomeing really mad. Lucky they got to a tent right before she hurt one of the kids.

    Within the tent a few abnormal, scattered beings sat eating at glass tables. The Circus Master led them to one where a pretty girl withwhite hair and gold eyes sat. She smiled brightly when they joined her, greeting the Circus Master first.
    "Privejt, Master!"
    "Da, Privejt Celestial. . We have some famished travelers here for a meal."
    Celestial got to her feet quickly. "Oh! Just one moment!!"
    She scampered off quickly, but had spoken enough for Shadow to pick up on her Russian accent.

    Shadow narrowed her eyes a bit. "This. . Celestial? She seems normal."
    The Circus Master smiled. "Seems. . "

    The white hair girl returned quickly and set bowls of hot soup and hot chocolate in fron of Shadow and her brother, then reclaimed her seat.
    "I hope this will be alright," she rushed. "I am Celestial, as you heard, who are the two of you?"

    Shadow motioned to herself. "I am ShadowStep, I prefer that over my real name or just 'Shadow' and this," she said motioning to her brother, "This is my Half-Brother Cresent."
    "I prefer Ches, as in a Chess game."
    "If you two are related, Why don;t you look like each other?"
    "Well, I am the daugther of The Shadow King and an Italian."
    "I am the son of the same Italian but my father was a fairy."
    "Pleased to meet you both!" She said then skipped off to help someone else. The Circus Master turned toward Shadowstep.
    "I want you to train with me."

    Shadow seemed slightly taken aback.
    "Train, now?"

    The Circus Master smiled. "Da, Let us see how you have improved." She tilted her head towards Ches, "I am guessing you have your own skills to share, Da?"

    "Eh, I don't really have a talent and if i do I have no idea what it is. . ."
    "That's fine, we have plenty of classes for you to try."
    "Cool! I think i will go and try some alchemy. . .sounds fun!"
    "YOu do that Ches, you do that. . ." The Circus master and Shadowstep watched as he walked off. When he had left the tent Shadowstep turned back to her bowl to eat, Then she noticed the Circus Master staring at her.
    "Umm. . .Yes?"
    "Shadow, I know you just got here and that your hungry but after you eat we really need to get training. That ability you have. . .it's unheard of. Even the Elder Shadow-walker here was stunned, he said that someone with that ability hasn't shown up in Centuries."
    "I like Metal and Alchemy! I am a talented Alchmist and I really really really enjoy Steampunk!" she slapped her hand over her mouth. "Sorry. . ."
    Aya smiled, "It's fine." They hear a rustleing in her pocket.
    "Oh My Gosh! I'm so sorry Jack!" She removed the rabbit from her pocket ad stroked his fur.

    The Circus Master cocked her head, smiling in amusement. "You brought a rabbit?"

    "I found it on the way here."

    "I see."
    She reached down and stroked the rabbits fur. "Interesting."

    "He is made of Metal, Isn't that cool!" In repsonse, Jack thumped his foot three times.
    "Oh yea, he understands us. I think He could be used as a Spy! I would need to upgrade him though. . ."

    "Jack is his name?"

    "Yea! He is a Jackalope, and it sounded cool."

    The Circus master layed her head on the table, "What do ya say Jack? Let Shadow here upgrade you and you could become my little spy. Would you like that?"

    Jack thumped six times. "He really likes that idea!" Shadow stroked his fur. Your funny Jack.

    The Circus Master and ShadowStep now stood in the deserted Performance tent.
    "Let us try one more time. . ." The Circus Master coaxed, holding the Obsidian mirror.

    "I. . .I'm sorry I don't think i can. . .I almost fainted last time. . ." Shadowstep was hesitant.

    The Circus Master's hand rested on her shoulder, "It's ok, I know you can do it, I Believe in you." Shadowstep's head perked up.

    "No. . .Nobody has ever believe in me before. . . I have always let them down. . ."

    "Well, that was your father Shadow. . .this is me."

    "But he said. . ."

    "I don't care what he said! You have a new family now. Da?"

    "Ve. . .but they hate me. . ."

    "What happened to 'I'm going to make my own life'?"

    "I just can't!" The Shadow's around her shifted, The Circus Master could have sworn that she saw Shadowstep Human form, A tall elegant women wth flowing hair and Deep purple eyes.

    "Shadow, I swear they do not hate you. They just do not know you yet. Tell me, you have been abused and broken through out your life?"

    The Shadow-Walker nodded, shifting from foot to foot.

    "Da, so has everyone else here. They just take time to trust. . ."

    Shadow nodded slowly, shrugging as she did so.

    "But that is not the point, the point is. . . I know you can do it. I know."

    "Fine, but I'm not promiseing anything. . ." Shadow picked up the mirror and looked deep within, she was aiming for a prized item she had left in The Shadow City. She concentrated her energy and took a deep breath. She felt happy she could see it again, now if only she could bring it to her. Suddenly the sicking feeling returned and she fell to her knees. Once she opened her eyes she looked for it. It was on the table.

    "Wow, that's beautiful. . ." The Circus master was stunned, Shadow had teleported 2 outfit's and her personal favorite, A necklace with Every gem known to mutants aranged in a pattern, A rainbow.

    "Yay!!!" She placed the necklace around her neck, "I'm so happy i got it back!"

    "May I ask, why a rainbow?"

    "Well, It's because I am a Shadow-Walker I have no color, this," she motioned to the necklace. "Was something i forged by hand for 2 years, My father took it away because he thought it gave me hope."

    The Circus Master nodded her understanding.
    "It is certainly an expertly made creation." she replied with a smile.

    "And you clearly do have the power to Shadow-Travel great distances. I am sure you will grow stronger with time."

    Shadowstep sighed, "I know I am going to get better, it's just. . ."

    The Circus Master tilted her head, "Just What?"

    Shadowstep pulled her shirt down to reveal her shoulder, A white line that looked like lightning was going down her shoulder to her chest. SHe looked extremely worried, "I don't know what's happening and it's getting worse. . ."
