Iryn, a human girl,her troid father Alar, and her human friend Amaya, decided to go on a quest to look for the legendary Dark Sword. This is the story of their adventure.


8. Chapter 6

After buying some supplies from Janford town, they headed to the port and boarded the ship that goes to Orwyn, the Moon elves land.

Alar sat on a chair, crossing his hands and closing his eyes.

Amaya stood next to Iryn and whispered to her”It seems that he didn’t get any sleep last night”

Iryn turned to look at Alar “Yeah, he seems tired”

“Your father is strict, but I think he really loves you and trusts you”

“You think so? If he trusts me, he would let me go on this quest without him following us”

Amaya smiled “He did that because he loves you, doesn’t mean he’s not trusting you”

“I love him too, he’s always there for me. Well now, tell me more about our destination, Orwyn”

Amaya cleared her throat”Well, Orwyn is the Moon elves land, It’s rules by Duke Nieven Aeson”

“Fancy name, is he an elf?”

“Of course, Orwyn is an elf land ruled by elves, It used to be independent land with it’s own monarch way back before the Norski time. That time Moon elves and sun elves lived together and were called simply elves. Now Orwyn is a part of Orton”

Iryn cupped her chin ”I see, so how about the Moon elves? How they look like, never met one before”

“Me neither, but according to the books I read, they have slender body, slightly taller than humans, their skin is a little blueish… umm… they have dark long silky hair varies from blue to black, pointy ears, sharp sky-blue eyes.”

“What? blue skin and pointy ears? wow that’s …. ugly”

“Well I don’t know about that, but will see. Besides, what is the importance of their appearance? We just want to find more information”

Iryn said with a grin “But it will be better to get help from a handsome man right?”

Amaya rolled her eyes “Anyways, in Orwyn, there is a huge library, it said that is the biggest library in all Orton and we can find any kind of books we want there, so I’m sure we will find something”

“I hope so”


They arrived at Orwyn’s port. Iryn almost jumped from the ship with excitement.

“I take it back, they are gorgeous, these moon elves! Oh Udis help me!”

Amaya looked at her friend ”Never knew you’re the religious type Iryn, asking a god for help.” she smirked “But I really understand, never thought they are this beautiful!”

Alar sighed “Stop drooling you two, let’s go find this library” he started walking, Amaya and Iryn followed.

Orwyn is a big city, with elegant buildings and nice designed gardens. Iryn and Amaya were walking with wide eyes trying to look at everything. They noticed that all the Moon elves are wearing dark clothes made with fine and expensive fabrics. While they were walking around, Iryn said “Maybe we should ask someone, Orwyn is so big we could get lost so easily”  she went to an elf passing by “Excuse me, can you tell me where can we find the library?” The elf turned and looked at them from head to toes, then walked away.

“Wait! What the ...”

Amaya spotted an elf kid and went to talk to him “Hello, um… Do you know where is the library?”

“Mama says I shouldn’t talk to the likes of you!” then he ran away.

“The likes of … me?” Amaya repeated in shock.

Alar put his hand on Amaya’s shoulder “I guess those elves don’t like visitors”

Iryn said, her hand on her hip “I think they hate visitors, it’s kinda weird! No elf wants to talk to us or show us the way!” Suddenly she saw a human young man reading a book in the nearby garden. She ran towards him “Hello, excuse me, can you tell me where can I find the library?”

“You’re new here?” The man asked

“Yeah, just arrived, but no one wanted to show me the way”

“As expected, don’t worry, they are like that. Well, just walk till the end of that road, then turn left, It’s big, you can't miss it”

“Thanks a lot!” She ran back to her companions.

They followed the directions given by that human man and they found themselves in front of a very beautiful garden with blooming trees and flowers with different colors and scents. In the middle of the garden was a big fountain made of white jade and has golden floral designs.

“Wait, is this gold?” Iryn asked in surprise.

“I don’t know, but maybe, Orwyn is really weird, I can’t say if they are rich, or if this things are cheap in this land!” Said Amaya while inspecting the golden designs in the fountain.

“Those flowers are also very rare” Said Alar in a low voice almost a whisper.

“That must be the library” Iryn walked towards a big white elegant building.

“Whaa.. Look at those pillars, and these stairs! Really, a small town girl like me, I feel like I was behind times looking at those buildings”

They went through the library gate, the reception room was very big, with red carpeted floor, high decorated ceilings and walls, a big chandelier, sofas and tables and a black reception desk where a very pretty elegant elf girl is standing, next to her was the entrance to the library rooms.

They went to talk to her, she greeted them “Welcome to Orwyn Library, please show me your student cards”

“Umm.. We are .. not students” Said Iryn

“Well, I’m afraid you can’t access the library”

“Why?” Asked Amaya in surprise

“Only the native citizens of Orwyn and the students of our academies and schools are allowed to access the library. Those are the rules.”

Iryn slammed the desk with her hands “That can’t be true! What’s wrong with you people? Do you hate visitors that much?” Every elf sitting in the lobby started looking at her direction.

“Please leave the library at once, or else I will call the guards” Said the girl without a hint of any emotion.

“This is bad! Our quest ended before it even started!” Said Amaya while walking out the library.

Iryn looked at her and said “Don’t worry, I will find a way”

“And how are planning to do that” Alar asked

“I don’t know, but I will! This is not the end, now let’s go find an inn”
