The Four Powers. A Skyrim Tale
Silence was all that could be heard, with very little sound to disturb it. The breeze, gently blowing through the snow topped trees, the birds, singing away, with the occasional deer running through the long, snow covered grass. However, this peaceful silence was soon interrupted, by the arrival of four mysterious strangers.
Jordan opened his eyes slowly, the sunlight glaring into his face. He felt sore all over, like he’d just been hit by a 16-ton bus. He slowly got up, trying to ignore the pain in his arm. “Ugh, that defiantly wasn’t a smooth ride” he said. “Ha, ya tellin me” said a familiar voice. Jordan looked over to see in brother, Isaac slowly getting up on his feet. “I mean, I never knew that traveling through portals could be so ruff.” “Me neither” said Jordan. Isaac slowly walked over to his sibling and helped him onto his feet. “Thanks” said Jordan. “Have you seen Bethany and Cierra?” “No, nothing” said Isaac. However, as soon as he said this, two familiar voices could be heard not far off, shouting. “Isaac, Jordan, where are you? Isaac, JORDAN!!!” “We’re over here” shouted Jordan. To their relief, Bethany and Cierra came into view, slowly walking towards them. However, what looked worrying was that Bethany was limping. “Isaac, Jordan” said Bethany and Cierra, hugging their brothers. “We thought we’d lost you” said Cierra. “Well, even if we did lose each other, we’d find you” said Isaac, smiling. “Hey, Bethany” said Jordan, “What’s wrong with your leg?” “I, I don’t know” said Bethany. “When I woke up, I felt a terrible pain in my left leg. When Cierra helped me up I couldn’t put any presser on it.” “And I couldn’t heal it either” said Cierra. “I think that we’ve lost some of our powers.” “Well, that’s just great” said Isaac. “We’re all covered in bruises and cuts, one of us has a broken leg, we’ve lost some of our powers and we’re stranded the middle of god knows where!” “Calm down Isaac” said Jordan, “At least we’re all alive.” The others nodded, agreeing strongly. “Come to think of it…, where are we?” asked Bethany. The others thought for a moment, well all but Isaac that is. “Do you REALLY think we know!” “I think I do” said Jordan. “This place, it seems, it seems familiar, like I’ve been here before.” “Well, it doesn’t seem familiar to us” said Cierra. “No, no, you lot weren’t here” continued Jordan. “It, it was a game.” “Oh, great, we’re in another game world” said Bethany. “I was here, here with a friend……” He trailed off at the last word, clearly on to something. “So, tell us then, the suspense is killing me!” said Isaac. “We’re in the land of land of snow topped mountains and cold climates” said Jordan. “The land of mighty heroes. The land of Nordic Legends.” The others starred wide eyed at Jordan, waiting for the answer. “We…are…in…SKYRIM!” The other siblings looked at each other in confusion and surprise. After a long pause, Isaac said, “You really had to say that a very roundabout way, didn’t you?” Jordan quickly glared at his brother. “It’s called making something sound, sound awesome!” “Heh, more like Over-reacting” said Isaac. “Oh, shut up” said Jordan. “Still, we’ve arrived here, so we might as well go and find civilisation.” “Well then, which way do we go?” asked Cierra. Jordan stepped forward, then stood there, looking around him from side to side. As he did this, Isaac whispered to Bethany, “He probably has no clue which way to go.” Bethany quietly nodded. Jordan continued to look around. The others got tired of waiting for him, and started to yawn. However, suddenly Jordan shouted. “WE’LL GO THIS WAY!” Isaac and Cierra jumped in surprise, while Bethany laughed. Jordan began to walk through the trees. He then looked back at his siblings. “Well, are you coming?” “Hang on, Hang on” said Cierra, helping Bethany up so she could lean on Cierra’s shoulder. Isaac followed behind the two sisters. “We’re defiantly going to get lost” said Isaac. “Ahh, don’t be silly Isaac” said Jordan, smiling, “I know this land like the back of my head. We won’t get lost. Now onward, my siblings, through Skyrim we go!” “Oh god, here he goes again” said Isaac.
