Introduction: The Astral Blade
The blade glowed like a pale star, its edge irresistible like an event horizon: a reflection of its origins. At least, that was the word about it. It was been auctioned by its proprietor and there were too many interested in it. From the most skilled bladesmasters to the most discerning collectors, everyone agreed it was unique. The amount of hired security surrounding the initial exhibition was astounding; there were more guns on belts than objects on sale.
“Welcome, Sir.” It was quite the moment when the Lord went in. He was a connoisseur of fine weapons but even him couldn’t resist the spell of the astral blade. He savoured every detail about the proprietor’s encounter with it. “I was simply doing my last round before going to bed. I checked that appliances were disconnected and lights off. Then, when in the kitchen, I noticed something glinting in the garden. I turned off the lights and the glow seemed even stronger, as if defying the outdoor lights. So I went out and found the blade lying on the lawn.” “Remarkable.”
“It’s been my most prized possession but I don’t think I can keep it anymore. It belongs in a museum or somewhere where people can enjoy it.” “I agree, this is a most impressive piece.” “As if fallen from the stars.” “I wouldn’t doubt it.” They obviously didn’t know how accurate they were, and also wrong. Blades like this aren’t anything rare among the stars but in the earthly realm we call home, it remains an object of wonder. At least, until its owner decides to come back for it.
