"Life can be full of surprises, what matters is how you handle them. If you are willing to accept them, whatever it may be, you may either surmount them or adapt to the way it is. However, if you try to escape them, you will have a rough time ahead of the road. Follow your dreams and whatever you imagine you could make a reality. This is the story of how I found my courage and managed to literally live my dreams. This, is my quest."
-Jeff Reynolds (Wolfblade Numbs)
There was a very dull neighborhood. It was very boring from hardly anything interesting happening. This is where a teenager, Jeff Reynolds, lived. He had dark brown hair and hazel eyes. His also had very long sideburns and little bits of facial hair above his lip and on his chin. He wore a black jacket and long, tan pants. He was a hardcore gamer, a hobbyist traditional artist, and had a love for roleplaying. He was one day roleplaying outside with his friends. He loved to play as his character, Wolfblade. It was pretty much just him mixed with a wolf and dragon. Then, the ground started shaking. When he looked over to his friends, they were gone. He was then sucked up into a portal and got knocked out by a giant rock that got sucked in as well. He went unconscious as he swirled around in some kind of vortex.
He then started to slowly wake up, everything was blurry. All he could hear was a faint "Wolfy? Wolfy? Wolfblade are you okay?" He saw a brown blur say that. "Hey, C'mon wake up, what happened to you?" A short anthro hedgehog said to him. Jeff scratched the back of his head when he felt something, wolf ears? "Aaaah! What the heck? Where am I?" He remembered being out in his back yard with his friends but now he was in a plains region, the sun glistened as he got up. Then, he felt something on his back. Was it what he thought it was? He extended his wings and flapped them. "W-what? W-who are you?" The now confused wolf-dragon-man said as he looked behind him. "Oh sorry, I did not properly introduce myself." The hedgehog stood in pride. "I am Quills the hedgehog. I was sent here told that you will come. For so long, we've been overrun by evil. But now that the chosen one has arrived, we can be freed from such a foul beast." He said excitedly. "What? Chosen one...?" Wolfblade then looked at his dragon wings, then his wolf tail. "Heh, this is wierd. Wait a minute... Quills the hedgehog... Where have I heard that name?" The boy pondered for a second. "Wait a m minute... I created you!" Wolfblade then exclaimed. "Yes, you were the creator of all this, and plenty more, come on! Let's head to the city!" The hedgehog then said happily. "Heh, alrighty then, you lead the way." Wolfblade said as he followed the little hedgehog in to the forest.
They walked through the forest, Jeff who was now known as Wolfblade was enjoying all the sights. All this seemed very familiar to him not only because he created it but also because he enjoyed drawing it and imagining the forest in his head. Then, they saw a small village. "Here we are, the village ruled by the queen of the Enchanted Forest." Quills said as they entered. Then, Wolfblade stopped. "Mind if I go see the queen?" He asked as he twitched his wolf ears. "Go right ahead, I bet she's been waiting to see you." The wolf-boy then ran into her castle. There were two guards at the castle. "None shall pass." one of them said. They were both male foxes with armor on. "Woah, hey you would keep me, Wolfblade, from entering huh?" Then, they both looked at him. their eyes widened. "Oh, very well then." One of them said. "Come on in." The other guard said very kindly. Then, the first guard softly said "Welcome, Wolfblade."
He walked around for several minutes, confused by the castle's large size where the Queen may be. He ended up getting some help from along the way and managed to see her. She was an anthro fox wearing a pink dress and also wore a necklace that had a wierd little card on it that hung down to her chest. She then sighed as she said "What do you want?! Village folk are not allowed in my castle!" She looked at him, she seemed very annoyed and not grasping the situation. "Well you see, I'm not village folk. I am Wolfblade. I was somehow sent into this world and I can't get out." He said a little timidly. "Wait a minute, you're Wolfblade, as in the god of this world?" Wolfblade nodded. "I am Courtney Fox. Our village needs your help." The fox concluded. "Follow me."
They headed down to the queen's chamber. It was very massive and had a huge bed on it. It had tons of mirrors as well. "Woah cool." Wolfblade said as they entered. Then, the fox pointed to a picture o a man that looked similar to him. He was a man with bat wings and cat ears and a tail. "This, is Wingclaw, his power is pure dark energy. He's extremely powerful and has killed thousands of us. You are our only hope to stop him." Courtney started showing other pictures of him that other artists have made. They all looked evil. Then, she pulled out a mini pod from under her bed. "My father gave it to me but I don't know what it does. You're the creator of this world, you should know." Then, it all came to Wolfblade. "I got this." He said as he pushed a button on it and threw it into the ground.It opened up into a pod with a pole on it that had a numberpad on i and a slot. Wolfblade started remembering the teleportation device he created.
"What are you doing?" Courtney asked as she looked at him very confused. Wolfblade then asked "Can I have your necklace for a second?" "Uhm... sure, here you go." Courtney gave him her necklace. Wolfblade then stuck the key on the necklace into the slot and twisted it. It started humming as the device turned on. "Now, is there a manual to this?" The kid looked at her. She then nodded and gave him a very thick book. "Where would you like to go?" He asked. "Hmmm, how about the Sacred Lake?" The fox suggested. "Very well then." Wolfblade then looked through the book for a minute, then entered a combination of numbers in the numberpad. Then, it started glowing and they were gone in a flash.
At the lake, the sunlight glistened on the surface of the water and it was fairly cloudy out. There was another flash of light and the two appeared. "Yes! It works!" Wolfblade said in pure joy. "Yeah, sure is beautiful out, huh?" Courtney looked at the pure blue water. "Yeah... I guess so." Wolfblade then looked down, remembering his old home, back when he was completely human. Then, Courtney held his hand. "Huh?" Wolfblade then looked up at her and blushed. Courtney giggled. "What's the matter?" She asked. Then, the boy let go of her hand, he started scratching behind his head, his face a deep red. "L-look, t-this is nice and all but, let's just head back. I kinda need to see someone." He managed to spit out those words like trying to lift a rock. "Uhm, very well then. Let's head back to the village." Courtney then headed back to the device. "Alright." Wolfblade then skimmed through the book and entered a code. The machine then ran out of power. "I got it!" Courtney then said as she zapped it and it started running again. "Cool, I forgot you had that power. The ability to turn any form of energy, kinetic, thermal, nuclear, and much more into electricity." Wolfblade stated. "Yeah, only problem is, I cannot create nor destroy energy." The fox pointed out. "Okay, let's try that again." Wolfblade said as he re-entered the pin and pressed enter. They were sent back to the entrance of the village, where Quills was waiting.
"Did you have fun?" The hedgehog asked. "I see you must have had fun with your new lady friend here." He snickered. Wolfblade and Courtney quickly stepped away from each other. "We're just friends." They both said at the same time. "Hahaha, very well then. I guess we better head inside, it's starting to get dark." Quills said as he looked off at the setting sun. "I can arrange that, you can just sleep with me, Wolfblade. My bed has plenty of room for two." Courtney then batted her eyelashes and made a very cute face at him. "Heh, very well then. I guess that'll work." He headed off with the fox and Quills headed back to his home. Everything was peaceful, for now.
