It was lying there, nestled between a pile of sand and a cluster of rocks. The green glare caught my eye in the sunlight, and I spotted it out of the corner of my eye. With the curiosity of any young child, I hurried over to it, eager to see what it was. I brushed off the sand, and held it in my hand. It fit into my palm, and I turned it over, trying to figure out what it was. Suddenly, my parents began calling for me, and so I put the egg ever so carefully back, and rushed back towards them.
It was the fourth day in a row I was visiting the shore, and once again I immediately began searching for the egg. I looked in the usual spot, I had decorated it with grass and sticks so I would always know where it was. This time, it wasn't there, instead in it's spot was cracked egg shell bits and a small dent in the pocket of sand and rocks. Tears sprung in my eyes, I thought someone had broken the egg or the creature had been eaten. I looked out into the sea, and that was when I realized I wasn't alone.
There, swimming just above the surface, was an eel-like creature, although judging from the fangs in it's mouth, I knew at once it wasn't no ordinary eel. This was a serpent, a baby form of the ones talked about in legends, and stories were told about them destroying and wreaking havoc on sailors and boats. Hesitating, I began to slowly move in it's direction, and it continued to stare. I reached into my trousers pockets, and pulled out a half-eaten fruit. The creature slowly moved in my direction, and so I tossed the apple in it's direction. It leaped out of the water, and caught the apple. I thought the serpent looked harmless, and so I began tossing it more bits of apple. The serpent caught all of them, splashing out of the water swiftly and gracefully. I vowed that I would always visit it at least twice a week, and so began my love for the cute creature.
5 Years Later
The bruises adorning my arms were beginning to heal. I trudged along back to the shore, carrying with me a couple fruit and some stale bread. The sea seemed to go on forever, and I began to waddle my way into it. I felt him slither along my ankles, and I jumped. The fruit went flying, but I managed to hold onto my bread. “Vertaw!” I exclaimed, scolding the serpent. In the course of 5 years, it had grown at least 9 feet, yet remained nearly invisible to those who weren't expecting to see a huge serpent brush against their legs. It quickly gobbled up the fruit, and then began circling around my feet once more. I sighed, the beast was no fighter. Despite it's supposed “savage” nature, I had yet to see it attempt to bite me. “I had a hard time getting that food today, so don't get too used to eating fruit.” Originally, I was heading out to get some for the family, but I made sure to get a few more for Vertaw. Unfortunately, the guards also made sure I wouldn't be doing that anytime soon. “Well boy, time for a swim I guess” I grunted, and then dove into the water, followed by my loyal serpent.
2 Months Later, Threat Of The Shadow Realm
The boy hadn't realized he was being followed. The demons had easily stalked him, blending in with the shadows and moving near silently along the forest floor. He was a target, and had something important to their master, and so they would move in and take it from him. Being lesser minded demons, they hadn't even known what they were looking for, but they were sure they would know once they saw it. The siege was underway, and the village would soon be raided and taken over. The boy was walking along the shoreline, and the demons knew now was the time to strike.
It was another long day, and I once again was looking for Vertaw along the shoreline. I saw no movement, no sign of the serpent, and so I decided to, as usual, just head into the sea to look for him. Hearing a rustle behind me, I quickly turned around, and felt my shoulder being pierced. Some small black impish creature had lunged onto me, and was ripping deep into my skin. I grabbed the freak and tossed it aside, and dove under the water. I felt a ripple of water, and looking in the distance, saw Vertaw barging towards me at an unusually fast speed. It rose out of the water, tossing me and the demons clear out of the water. The last thing I saw before everything went black was the oncoming sand, and the wails of demons rung in my ears.
I awoke just as soon as I had been knocked out, and only to see Vertaw ripping apart the demons. They flew around him, clawing at his scales, and I saw that Vertaw was growing annoyed from the petty attempt. He shook them off and finally flattened the last one. I was relieved to see my friend hadn't been hurt, aside from a few claw marks along his face. The serpent suddenly grew still, and I turned around to see why. Behind me, a huge giant lumbered in the distance, holding a tree as though it were a toothpick. Vertaw grunted, and I saw no other option. We were both in no position to a giant, let alone an entire army. I dove into the water, and grabbed onto Vertaw's scales. I knew this would not be the last time I would see the village, or the giant. Swearing revenge on the raiders, me and Vertaw took off into the never ending sea, not knowing our destiny would play a bigger role in the war then ever.
