Never Say Goodbye Chapter 1It began with a dream.In it, Fabian was alone in a desolate wasteland. No one was around him, yet he felt safe. Happy, even. How that could be so, with such sorrow and despair surrounding him, he couldn't tell, but still he was.Then, there was a scream. He turned around, and a sight broke his heart even though he couldn't do anything about it- a girl, one he didn't recognize, was behind him, her arms outstretched, calling his name. Tears in her eyes, she whispered his name one last time and vanished. Despite the pain in his heart, he managed a smile. She was safe.He awoke, gasping, in a cold sweat, her name on his lips. "Elina
" He whispered.He shook his head. "It was just a nightmare," he told himself. "She's not real."Fabian got up out of bed and started cleaning up, preparing for the day.

On an altar-like object in the "temple," they found a tightly bound scroll. The scroll was written in a strange language, but they could still read it. It said that each of them had an ancient creature trapped inside of them, and they could summon it at will when they l
