Some of you may have read my ideas on the create your own manga thread, so I figured I'd get my ideas out there.
The first 3 chapters are sort of weird. It throws you right into the powers, and story. But all for a reason. The story is to be told out of order, which I thought was something different.
I have some sketches of characters, but they haven't shown up yet, so I'll get those out there soon-ish.
Colors is a story about gangs, and street fights. The first 3 chapters follow the gang leader, Lucas, who is known as the King of the city.
And lastly, I hope you guys enjoy it, since I love writing, hopefully you guys will like my writing too.
! The streets…
! Our city. We live here.
! Zelfair City.
! My home... our home.
! Chapter 1: Home
! "Yo! Sunny!" shouted a voice.
! The boy was sitting on top of a hill, playing with a butterfly on his finger, in awe at the nature.
! "Oi!" the voice shouted again.
! "Shhh," "Sunny" said. "Don't scare the butterfly. Hey, Neil. Ya' know, this hill is one of the only things this city has left? It's all man-made now a days. What a shame."
! "Sunny" was a short boy, he had shiny blond hair that he spiked up various directions. He had big blue eyes, that seemed to gaze out forever. He wore a school uniform that bore the emblem "Zelfair East". On his leg he wore a black bandana. "Sunny" also wore a necklace with a crown shaped medallion.
! "And Neil, while we're here, don't call me Sunny. I'm just plain ol' Lucas," he said with a smile.
! "Sure thing boss," replied Neil in a quiet tone.
! "No need fo' that boss thing either, silly," Lucas said laughingly.
! "Lucas, do you realize what you've done for this city?" Neil asked in a serious manner.
! "Hehe, it's my job," Lucas replied still smiling.
! " "The one they call King, Lucas "Sunny" Nomura." You'll be a legend Lucas. For years they'll revere you as the kid who ruled the streets," Neil stated.
! "Neil, it's all thanks to my family. My gang. Everyone thinks gangs are bad. But look what we've done Neil. The city is a great place to live because of Soldier," Lucas said. "By the way Neil, why didja come here? It's not ordinary to get news from my second in command."
! "Oh! Right! Here, a letter," as Neil handed Lucas a piece of paper.
! Lucas read the letter aloud.
! "Dear Lucas,
This city is a great place once again. With Soldier roaming the streets, criminals don't dare to strike our town. All crime has been eradicated. Zelfair is truly a paradise. But Lucas, there is one man that worries me. We must meet and discuss how to get rid of this man. He could be the one that turns this paradise into a hell again. Lucas, meet me at the Great Park Building at 10:00 PM tonight. Bring your commanders, and any other's you may feel need to here our plans.
! Thank you,
! Lucas smiled pleasantly, "Hehe. The mayor thinks I need help cleaning up the streets. I guess I should humor him. Neil, send out messages to the rest of the upper tier."
! "Of course, sir," Neil said. As he walked back, he glared at Lucas.
! The scene changed, it was a large building. Grafiti littered the walls, and the windows were barred shut. Outside stood 2 large guards, who stood as still as statues, but you could tell they were watching you. A tall man, who wore a black trenchcoat walked up to them and pushed them aside with ease. The tall man entered the building, and approached Lucas, who was surrounded by 6 men. The Upper Tier had gathered.
! One man was incredibly fat, and had an incredibly long beard. He wore a suit, and seemed to be a teacher at a school. He carried a large binder, and wore tiny spectacles that looked like they wouldn't help his vision, and were more for a fashion statement.
! The next man wore a tight tee shirt, and seemed to be quite muscular. He had dark brown hair, and his eyes were dark as night. His hair almost covered both his eyes, but stopped right at the brim of his eyebrows. In his hand, he held a large stick that was crafted into a cane only at the end, so he wouldn't get splinters while holding it.
! The third was a women. She was short, but she seemed to have filled out. She also wore the East Zelfair High School emblem, and wore it's uniform. She had dark blue hair, which was tied into a ponytail with a red ribbon. The ribbon's loose ends flew everywhere. On her arm she had a tattoo that said "4". She wore a backpack, and a teddy bear stuck out from the back of it.
! A middle man, average height, wore a beanie that covered most of his eyes. He wore a hoodie that looked too big for his body, and his hands never left his pockets. On his knees were two knee coverings, covered in spikes. From his pants hung 2 knives, one branded with the name "Scene" and the other "Thug".
! The fifth was also a women. She wore the West Zelfair High emblem and uniform. She wore long, thick rimmed glasses, that only covered the bottom of her eyes. Her hair covered half of her face, but it was spiked in the back. She wore a short skirt, shorted then the first women, but attatched to her legs were two bandanas which ends flew in the wind. On the back of her uniform appeared to be wings spray painted onto her uniform.
! The last man was african of decent. He wore his hair short, in a buzz cut. On his lips were two piercings that looked like snake bites. He wore a robe like cloak, and hung from his back was a large item, covered in bandages. Branded on the front of his shirt was a cross, and the name Graveyard.
! "SO SO SO, WHAT'S THIS MEETING FOR BOSS?!" yelled the guy who appeared to be late.
! Lucas glared at the late comer and said "sit down Nash."
! Nash was a tall, lanky man, who wore a black trenchcoat that covered him from head to toe. The collar of his trenchcoat seemed to cover almost his entire face, and as he wore a hat, he looked almost entirely covered. But his hair was incredibly long, and flowed down almost the entire length of his back.
! Lucas looked around.
! "Welcome my Upper Tier. To what could be the end of our reign."
! End of a reign?! Was there something on that letter we didn't see?! Next chapter : Soldier
! Chapter 2 : Soldier
! The Upper Tier looked shocked.
! "WHATDYA MEAN LUCAS?!" yelled the girl in the glasses.
! "Simmer down Mina. Neil, who told you to deliver this letter?" said Lucas calmly.
! "An average guy, didn't seem out of the ordinary." said Neil, who was the middle man in the hoody.
! "Exactly. Why would the mayor send me a letter like that? And via a messenger? "That man" would never let a meeting between the two biggest leaders in the city meet so easily. Even if the mayor managed to get a message to me, who's to say the letter wasn't intercepted. This could all be a trap. Wouldn't you say Neil?"
! "…" Neil was silent.
! "So why gather us together?" spoke the man with Graveyard printed on his back.
! "If this is real, then we can finally defeat that man. But if this is a hoax, then there's a trap waiting at the GPB. And when I chose you as the Upper Tier, all of you vowed to act for the good of Zelfair," spoke Lucas. He was completely different from the boy on the hill, a serious tone surged through his voice, almost grim like.
! "Rock," Lucas said as he looked at the man in the tee shirt, "Mr. Carrion," as he looked at the man with the beard, "and Ashelynn," as he looked at the girl from his school, "you three are my front guard. We'll enter the building together. Nash, Neil, Mina, will be the rear guard. Graveyard, will be our lookout. Now, they'll be expecting 8 people if this is a trap, meaning there will be armed men in the building if this is a trap. It's up to the rear guard to take them out."
! The Upper Tier looked at each other, and then nodded at Lucas. They all believed in Lucas, whether it be their last stand, or the road to their enemies destruction.
! Lucas walked down a bright hallway, with the front guard at his side. He pushed open two large doors, and there was a large table, and at the end sat a freakishly fat man, who seemed to be more spherical then humanly shaped. He chowed down on his dinner, as he greeted Lucas.
! "Hrerro Lucrasss," he said as he finished his food.
! "Yo, Don," Lucas said with the same expression he held at the hill.
! "You seem to be missing some men, dontcha' know?"
! "Yeah, yeah. Nash is a lazy bastard, Mina's probably off watching some porn, Graveyard has a family to take care of, and Neil's back at the base," Lucas said with his poker face on.
! "Ah, ah ah," the Don turned on three television screens. Each screen contained Neil, Nash and Mina, being tortured.
! "...Don?! Why?!"
! The Don's face began dissolving, and out came a man Lucas had never seen before. Could this be "that man"?
! "Yeheehehehehehehehe," the weird looking, faceless guy said. He wore a tight suit, that could almost pass for his skin. On his arm was engraved "Versetti" and on his belt was various guns, and ammo.
! "I am, Bruno Versetti, just a minion of the one you call "that man". That messanger? That was me. I'm what they call a master of disguise. Yehehehe."
! "Where's the Don?" Mr. Carrion questioned Bruno.
! "WRONG QUESTION!" as he quickly rose up his gun and shot. But Lucas was fast. With a quick kick, the bullet was deflected. "Yeehehehe. I see why they call you Sun Foot now. Yehehehe. This could be interesting."
! Lucas's kicks were completely refined. His legs were trained to the point of perfection, and granted him the name Sun Foot, as his legs seemed to have power the surpassed the sun. His feet seemed to be on fire from the friction caused when he moved his leg so fast.
! Carrion, Ashelynn and Rock all dissappeared.
! It was Lucas vs Bruno, all by himself.
! The front guard apparently fell into a trap, and fell through a floor trap. They awoke in a large room, with bright lamps that shined, and seemed to destroy their vision. So bright they could not see.
! "Rarururururu. Leol Versetti. I will be your executioners."
! Carrion quickly opened his binder, and out came a Knight.
! "A knight in shining armor, an important icon in fairy tales. They call me Fairy Tale Carrion. Good luck Leol, because in fairy tales, good always triumphs over evil."
! *The fights have begun. The rear guard trapped, the front guard paralyzed by the blinding lights, only the fighter who can fight without his hands stands a chance. Next chapter : Ending"
! Chapter 3: Ending
! Lucas wailed at Bruno the Changer. His kicks seemed to be no effect on this constantly changing man.
! Carrion's creation charged at Leol, but couldn't hit him due to the blinding lights.
! The other two front guards had yet to awaken.
! "RARURRUURURURU. EAT THEM UP, MY FRIENDS!!!"
! The light engulfed Mina and Nash.
! "Yehehehe, it seems Mina and Nash are done for," stated Bruno, as he looked back at the TVs, while Lucas continued to try to pummel him. Bruno grabbed Lucas's leg and threw him across the room.
! "Lucas, do you realize the power of Versetti?! We only lied in the shadows for so long only to grow stronger. A shadow grows larger as the sun sets."
! "…A shadow needs a sun to exist. And I promised, I wouldn't desert this city."
! Carrion's knight disseapeared.
! "RARU?! What happened?!"
! "Shit, my time limit," Carrion thought.
! "RARURRURURURU, THE LIGHT SHALL ENGULF YOU TOO!!!!"
! "Yehe. Lucas, they're all gone now. Both your hidden guard, and the ones in plain site. Your all alone now."
! "..Heh. I guess you can't count, idiot."
! Graveyard smashed through the ceiling and punched Bruno's head right to the ground.
! "GO! YOU MUST LIVE!" Graveyard shouted.
! "...Thank you, Graveyard."
! Lucas left the room, and continued out of the building. But the city lights weren't on, it was eternal darkness. A voice was heard.
! "Heh... heh... heh. There is no escape. You leave behind your companions, what kind of king leaves behind his people. You're nothing but a coward."
! A dark figure struck down Lucas. He was bleeding, and crawling toward the figure.
! "You knew this was a trap, yet you lead us into it Lucas. Well, now the light will be taken without the cities sun. I'm sorry... boss."
! The figure was Neil. Neil shot Lucas in the head, and left his corpse to rot.
! ".. I truly am sorry, Lucas."
! *The ending of our story?! The hero dead?! CAN IT BE TRUE?! DEAD BEFORE THE STORY EVEN BEGINS?! Next chapter : Skylar"
