Chapter 1 Mark of Venus They said "destiny awaits", that I am the only one who can do it due to my markings, "Mark of Venus" they called it. Yet here I am, locked up in a holding cell before I could find a teacher to master my so called " power". It all started a few weeks ago, I was just like the other teenagers. Sarcastic, rebellious, still sneaking about looking for adventures. I would have never guessed that I would actually be a part of one... and now that I finally know what its like, I regret wishing for an adventure. In a way, Although I am a prisoner of the kings Navy.. I finally feel free. You see, I was not raised as normal as I said I was. I was born into a monks life. Although this monk sanctuary is not that large, we are very close to the village which surrounds us, bringing many visitors that wish to be "renewed" from their sins against nature. Being raised by monks, I am cut off from many things that other teenagers might do. Such as, eating meats.... or milk.... or eggs. Learning in the public schools is also against tradition... and as a male, I have to shave off my hair to show my respect for nature and the spirits. You are probably wondering " Is'nt a monestary supposed to be in solitude? Why is it so close to a village?" this is where my part comes in. My name is Nius, short for Sophronius. Our monestary's lands has been harboring villagers for the past 100 years due to the tyrant we call a "king". The past villages that these people have lived in were destroyed and burned down by the soldiers leaving many without land, and the only thought of hope is the monestary. Monks are known not to interfere with the way of life, so we do not concern ourselves with the affairs of civilians, but as Monks... lovers of nature, we also can not deny our hearts of helping the needs of those who come to our door hoping for healers. Legend has it that one day a hero will come and defeat the Lord. Although the lord is protected by many curses and sorcerers who have used their magic to the point of giving him immortality, the Mark of Venus has extrodinary powers that can peirce his flesh once more. I have been blessed by this mark.. at least they call it a blessing, I see nothing but a curse. You are probably wondering "How do they know that you are the Mark of Venus?". At birth my flesh was etched by the spirit diety Venus, she herself marked me with ink on my skin that can never be erased. As the monks tried to hide my markings from the soldiers, I had to get many tattoos . Our tradition lies that at the age of 16 we get our personality tattoos that we have been showing through our childhood. Navigation, Wisdom, Love , Guidence. Many more are ahead of my list. Seeing how they were desperate to hide my markings, they gave me the largest tattoo personality there is at the age of 12, the Beholder. Now here I am, 17 years old. Being told my destiny of how I have the mark and the world depends on me, they told me that I can find a teacher to help me master the mark at the south pole, but being stupid as I am out of all the ships I asked a pirate to help me get there... How am I supposed to know they were pirates? I thought they had peg legs and eye patches... what ever happened to that? apparently they were educated anough to see my mark, they handed me over the the kings Navy for a high bounty... now I am just waiting for what would happen next. ~End of chapter 1 Afrodiddle
