-Why are you staring me? - She looked me right in the eyes, almost as if she wanted to pierce through my skull with her gaze, with her cold hazel eyes.

-What? - I said, a bit scared of her sudden realization of my stare. Flustered I tried to deny the fact. –I wasn’t staring, you’re wrong…-

-Don’t try to lie, I know you were watching me…- Her face, slowly showing disgust, started to get me, as I hoped she would keep quiet about it, hoping she wouldn’t make a scene.

-I swear I wasn’t looking at you, I was… I was…- clumsily I tried to complete the sentence, yet she interrupts my doubtful stuttering.

-Cut the bullshit, since I sat down you have been ogling me, didn’t your parents teach you that staring is impolite? – Her skin goes red in anger, mine shares a similar tone, but out of embarrassment.

-I wasn’t ogling you… I just was… eh…- I exhale in frustration as her expression grows sourer by the second. I must think about something fast before is too late, as the people around me is starting to look in our direction.

She is looking at me so hard I think her eyes are chipping away parts of my face, she shuffles on her seat. For a moment I think she is about to slap me and the fear of incoming shame and pain is exactly what my brain needed to kick-start a plan.

Well not exactly a plan plan… more like a course of action, one I don’t usually take
I take a deep breath and reveal the truth -I was staring your beautiful face. - I close my eyes, expecting the slap, yet I don’t receive it. Tentatively I open one eye to see if she is just preparing for a stronger attack and I find her confused.

-What did you say? - She asks, momentarily baffled from my bluntness. I decide that if there ever was a time to capitalize on telling the truth, this was it.

-I said I was staring your beautiful face. - I pause for a second seeing how her expression slowly changes and decide to continue. –There is so little beauty in the world and the duty…no… the privilege of the human beings is to observe it and celebrate it.-
She shyly smiles and I take that moment of emotion for my cue to continue.

-Today I meet with something amazing and beautiful, and I stared, gazed and observed it, as to me to find that is not only a joy but an eternal quest.- Slowly and steadily I speaking louder, to caught in the moment to realize it.

-I don’t desire to inconvenience you, as you gave me a great present, yet I beg of you not to take from me the sight of wonders and allure that I can see beyond your hazel eyes. - I end my, surprisingly archaic, declaration and sit down, with all the people around looking at me.

For a moment, the whole bus remains in silence. Some smiles can be seen and some even are waiting to see if the others clap. But as soon as it began the magic is gone and a bit disappointed the seated audience to my sudden incursion into poetry is gone.

I see the object of said artfulness who watches me with kind eyes and a much softer expression than before for a moment, before turning back to the window.

I consider this a small victory, as I didn’t get slapped at all. But that verdict changes as I hear her whisper, while she hides her blushing face.

-You don’t look half bad yourself.-

I timidly smile, as truth was my friend in this perilous hour.
True Intentions
A short story I wrote after imagining a situation while riding a bus last week. I hope you enjoy it... I must admit romance isnt my strong point when it comes to writing

Arranque con un blog, vean si algo les interesa y compartan si tienen ganas
There are 4 great Continents in this world: Io, the center of this world and the birthplace of the great Krieger Empire; Zhe in the East, from the northern wastes of the Hussark Clans to the Eastern-most lands the Azuma Islands. In the south Harav lies, with its golden deserts and the southern islands were tribes fight in the luxurious jungle. In the West the massive land of Frontera, the “newest” continent spans for thousands of miles and haves the tallest point in the world, the Blanco Mountain’s Okwaho Peak, reaching 31.454 ft (9857 mts).

But these places not only carry a lot of interesting places now, as their history is rich and plentiful. In this document we will explore, in a much abbreviated way, the most important historic events in the 4 Continents. For this purpose and to avoid getting lost between several different calendars, we will use the Krieger Calendar and count in negative upon previous events. The Krieger Calendar starts the year of the foundation of the original Krieger Kingdom and it moves from that point on. Investigators and Academics have found evidence of activities dating at least 2000 years before the foundation of the Kingdom.

???? to -2000 KC (Approximation decided by the Krieger Imperial University)

• First Recorded Texts that survived to the modern times
• The Pre-Jianese Culture, Yuno Kingdom flourishes on Zhe
• First Hussark Tribe builds the first Hussark Tower
• Primitive nomadic tribes move in Harav.
• Small communities form proto-countries in Io
• Natives in Frontera start their first contact with Deus

-2000 to -1500 KC

• Yuno Kingdom falls, anarchy reigns in the pre-Jianese territory
• Yuno nobility that survived the fall escape to the sea and discover the Azuma Islands
• Helios, the first Ionian Kingdom starts an aggressive expansion from the south-east corner of the continent.
• Seismic activity starts destroying the Wand Mountain Range in Io, to create the Rot Tal passage that in 1000 will become wide enough for the first Hussark Horde to attack the neighboring continent
• The Villages in Northern Harav start developing a joint language and culture in base of sharing mercantile ties and similar religious beliefs, all of them worshipping the Sun and the Moon as Sister and Brother.
• Hussark tribes lead by King Ymir Frossin conquered the Northern Regions of the Zhe Continent and started moving to the south

-1500 to -1000 KC

• First Jianese Kingdom, expands and wages battle against the Hussark Horde. The Great Fortifications of Jian are created in the Northern Rim of the growing Jian Kingdom.
• Azuma is founded and starts their traditional ways of combat and honor, the Southern Province creates the Merchants Guild.
• The First Hussark horde attacks Jian and crosses the Brown Sea into Havar, creating a small camp in the northern Rim of the desert Continent.
• Northern Havar is unified under the First Sha that praises a new god, Akhen, and under his guidance the Hussark are kicked out of the continent
• Frontera is divided into the Three Tribes, the Northern Takret Tribe, the Ozuye in the grasslands and in the south the Akweks living in the desert. From this tree tribes descend all the current ones.
• Reaching the -1000 Helios falls thanks to it’s own corruption of the government and Io once again becomes a land of warring factions. Some of the Helios survive and form what can be considered a proto-Krieger society.
• First historical records talking about Steel and Advanced Siege Weaponry.

-1000 to -500 KC

• Io is set ablaze at the end of this period as the Three Empires War starts. The Pre-Krieger Empire of Kurztian owning the north of the continent, the southern hot-blooded Valencients and the Ikotts, master of the Torn Sea in the west. Their fight starts in -512 and would last for centuries as the political landscape shifted.
• The Jian Empire defensive strategy shifts into offensive and counter attacks the Hussark hordes, this would prove to grant short term success as the Hussark, even weakened and without their legendary skills lost in the sands of time, had an enormous advantage in their home territory. This failed attempt at conquest by Jian would start the legend that still reaches our times about the (Factual) impossibility of conquering the Hussark on their domain.
• Azuma flourishes while expanding their influence into a series of island south of Jian and reaching out to the Havar Kingdom with economic and cultural profit to both sides. The cultural exchanges generates some resentment in the populace and the Emperor starts to lose support, the Military Clans start to wrestle over political power and the War of Twelve start, with the 12 governors of the Azuma Mainland Provinces engaged into a series of conflicts extending from -602 to -503. The war ended after almost a century of war, when 5 of the clans joined forces under the banner of Kensei Mitsurugi, that unified the country, took the name of Dai oh’
• Northern Havar becomes the world most powerful economy thanks to their pacifistic tendencies and cultural openness. The current Sha speaks his final words that are still used in Havar and in the world by all the merchants almost religiously “Even in my deathbed I’m ignorant to all but one thing, the world is ruled by wealth”
• Frontera tribes live in harmony with nature and each other, some minor expeditions of Io, Havar or Jian discovers bits of the continent but nobody establishes a proper colony. Havar does only in -415 KC in what is now called Colt Island.
• The Hussark travel through the North Pole thanks to a cold wave that freezes the Polar Sea, allowing them to reach the Northern Coast of Frontera, there the mixture between bloods starts.

-500 to 0 KC

• The War in Io starts to settle down slowly, yet steadily the Kurztian Empire starts to lose order thanks to the corrupted nobility that served no more purpose than a decorative role. The final decline started in -50 and in -1 the General Johann Panzerwald leaded a coup d’ etat deposing the current and weak king, slaughtered the corrupted courtesans and cleaned the nobility leaving only those who served the Kingdom. A lot of territory was lost and the oppressed provinces took the advantage to form new Kingdoms. Three in the south, Two in the west, a myriad in the East that constantly changed and 3 more in the north of Io. Krieger was founded in 0 KC
• The Hussark integration with the Northern Tribes of Frontera is finished. The New Northern Tribe is more aggressive and less cooperative with the others.
• -269 KC the Jian Empire discovers Gunpowder, mostly used in fireworks and not weaponized until -230 KC when a Jian General started using it for signals and when he accidentally killed on of his men after hurrying him to shoot the signal he started using with Cannons.
• -245 KC The Dai’oh still rule with iron hand the Azuma Islands and start a war against the Jian Empire that lasted 5 years. The Military Prowess and Discipline of the Azuma beat over the Jian Empire higher numbers and better equipment. Azuma takes a chunk of territory and creates the fortified city of Inazuma to protect the domains they acquired. This Territory is lost around -42 KC.
• Northern Havar enters a crisis thanks to the lack of rains in the agricultural lands. They plan to colonize Frontera yet a storm destroys most of their fleet, throwing the once rich Kingdom into disarray, with the Southern Tribes getting into the mainland of Havar and pillaging. The drought destroys years of culture and the Kingdom enters into a state of anarchy in -133 KC. From this dreaded times comes the expression coined by a Jianese Merchant “Hungrier than a Havar”
• The Wand Mountains continued the seismic activity finally created a clear passage from Io to Zhen. The Rot Tal Passage is born. The Hussark won’t find it until 170 KC.
0 KC to 416 KC

• The Krieger Empire is founded by King Johann Panzerwald I, also known as Johann the Great. Krieger starts expanding military technology in an explosion, by introducing fire-arms and advanced warfare tactics. Defensive Offensive formations, swift annihilation of enemy positions. This new warfare took Io by surprise and in 10 years most of the Continent was conquered. The Foundation of Panzerwald and the discovery of new materials (Including whatever is Quicksilver composed off) kick started the First Golden Century, from 20 KC to 110 KC, 90 years full of discoveries and advancement in almost every field. This explosive reaction extended to all the Empire and even reached parts of Jian and Northern Havar. Azuma remains closed to foreign influence.
• Fronterian Krieger Colonies start to pop up from 50 KC to 200 KC, covering the whole Continent except for the deep end of the Blanco Mountains, were the Northern Tribes took refugee and the Desert were the Southern Tribes hide. The Center Tribes are the only ones that establish a relation, even as tense as they have, with the Krieger Colonizers
• Jian stumbles upon a time of cultural stagnation, and slowly drifts apart until in 390 KC the Imperial Family is persecuted and killed by a noble house that takes control (This coup is the one that destroys Monkey Girl family forcing here into exile)
• Havar regains part of their former glory thanks to the new wave of spirituality lead with the Prophet of Akhen, some take his words too seriously and small groups called Razmik start to travel to other countries to preach the word of Akhen, sometimes by force.
• Azuma fall into the Gijutsu War as the Dai oh’ regime crashed, the war started in 395 and ended in 401, with victory for the Gijutsu party that started a revolution all over the country. (Batsu was born in 396)
• The Armies of Colonial Krieger start moving out from Frontera upon the 250 KC First Invasion of Hussark to Io, in 260 KC the armies are reduced to the half and for 300 KC the armies are reduced to a fourth
• The Natives and the Colonialist start to feel unrest against the Krieger Domination and in 350 their armies are assembled in secret. In 366 the War of Frontera starts, leading the Frontera joint forces is Frederick Halbark, currently known as Diamond the leader de facto of the Full Deck Gang. The war is waged up until 375 and Krieger domain is reduced to the Northern Eastern Corner of the Continent. Halbark refuses the position as King and allows each city to choose their own government, while keeping the peace in exchange of monetary retribution.
• The Gijutsu Party rules Azuma and the Traditionalist are forced into the North. Tsukimori Trading Colony is funded in 403 and Azumajin officers and merchants take the Fronterian Economy by Assault.
• 410: Kuro-san starts the Mangetsu Plan and Full Moon starts to take shape, only to be revealed in 414.
• 416: This year.
