part 1: Exile to Jurai
Far from mercury, in the outer recesses of the universe, Jurian Imperial Military ships arrived on their home planet Jurai,landing safeley on it's soil after peircing and flying through the planets atmosphere. Captives were being steadily marched from the ship's hold, closely observed by their captors. Two among these captives were Jerren and Ami, who were roughly forced back into the single file line of their peers with the butts of their guards' weapons.
“Keep it moving, kid. You're dragging the line down.” a guard yelled sharply, thrusting the butt of his weapon again into his back.
“It's not my fault these cuffs weigh a ton!, they make it a hassle to move, much less do it quickly...” he replied under his breath.
Jerren ryo gregory, was a black skined boy,age 19 weighing in at 5 foot 5 and was wearing a black tank top and jeans. he was somewhat of a complainerbut nice when you get to know him.
The guard caught a vague hint of what he'd said and shoved him yet again, harder this time. Not far off, Ami could be heard attempting to calm the guards' strikes.
“You can't treat us like this! Captive or no, we're still people!” she cried.
Now ami mizuno anderson was a small but intellegent woman with a height of 5 foot 2 ,being also 20 years old
she had blue hair and eyes ,a white butoned shirt with a blue vest,a middle waist skirt that was brown,and brown boots.
“Both of you, shut your mouths!” another guard called “Or would you rather I make you shut them?” he said, thumbing the hilt of his sabre.
“No, no, we're moving. No need for hostility.” she mumbled, shuffling forward with the rest. It wasn't long before they managed to reach the end of the line, forced into what they hoped was a temporary holding area.
“These guards must be insane!” Jerren screamed, looking over his shoulder to make sure there weren't any guards waiting to strike him again; he didn't need another bruise on his back. Or worse.
“Not to mention incredibly rude. They can't just treat us like animals because we're imprisoned here.” she sighed, looking down the length of the line, admiring how long it really was. Jeremy took notice and looked as well.
“Jeez... this line is worse than the ones you find at a newly opened amusement park!” he said, eyes open wide in awe from the sheer volume of people. Ami sighed, turning his attention to her again.
“Yeah, I know. And just a quick estimate puts us waiting here for at least 4 hours, probably more. by the time we get done here I'll be well into my 90's!” she ran her fingers across her face, feeling the wrinkles that didn't yet exist. Jerren sighed this time, exasperated. Ami smiled at him “Don't be such a downer, Jerren. We could both use the exercise. Not to mention this fresh air actually feels lovely.”
“Man, Ami. Seems like no matter how bad the situation is, you always manage to find the bright side.” Jerren told her.
“Well, someone has to do it. How else would we keep our spirits up?” She replied, smiling in earnest.
“Yeah, you've got a point there. Especially not knowing just where we're headed.” he said. His head tilted up as he caught sight of what looked like a bird passing by. Ami took notice as well, her head tracking its flight. It was only then that the two truly looked at the planet on which they'd landed, and they were unable to stop staring.
Enormous rolling hills, completely green without even a trace of brown; monolithic trees, stretching into the sky and almost touching the clouds; an immeasurable array of flora dotting its entirety, splashing color everywhere; seemingly endless rivers, clear enough to see the fish swimming in all met their eyes. It was truly stunning.
“This might not be an ideal situation, Ami. But this place is just... it's...” he was unable to find a proper word to describe what he was seeing.
“I know, Jerren. Breathtaking.” she replied.
The line began moving again, and faster than Ami had predicted. Soon enough, the pair saw their destination, whatever it may be, on the horizon.
“Well, it looks like you were wrong about how long this would take, eh?” Jerren asked, smiling and gazing around at the pure beauty of the place they'd been taken.
“It would seem that I was, Jeremy. And I'm almost sad to see it go.”
