13. The Duellist
Previously: The Team reached the Evergreen Forest – Next day we crossed the forest but were separated – A Lion-Eagle appeared and captured us – Nexus came and fought with Liona – Liona gave us a chance to escape and we ran to the Evergreen City – We met Rose and then went to the Palace but Bilbo took us to secret Basement and then we realised his evil plans.
Now: Sky and I were captured by the Bilbo and we realised his conspiracy to overthrow the Animalia King. Bilbo’s forces went to the Palace to capture it. Sky and I released ourselves and ran away. We met Luna and Sophia and told them everything. Sophia and Lucas went to the Western City to stop the forces and I and Luna went to Palace to stop Bilbo from attacking the Animalia King. We were continuously attacked several times and finally we reached the Palace. The Animalia King believes Bilbo more than us and then Bilbo captured us again. As we were captured the Bilbo’s forces took us to the Western Basement. We were thinking how to escape from there. Bilbo arrives and challenged us for a duel in the Central City. The Animalia King punished us because he believed Bilbo and punishment was to fight in the Central Square against Bilbo. The next day, in the Central Square, Sophia had to face Bilbo. We thought that Sophia alone could defeat him but after a while, we realised that she needed help. Sophia being a good Warrior fought well and without using her powers, she weakened him but suddenly Bilbo turned the tides when he suddenly attacked Sophia using his powers. Sky and I went in the duel and then the duel turned out to be a battle. The Animalia King arrived and saw us fighting with each other, he cried, “All of you stop battling”. We thought that King was on our side but he was on the Bilbo’s side. May be due to the fact that he was not aware of the Bilbo’s plans, he wasn’t listening to us. We had to stop Bilbo and then we three attacked Bilbo simultaneously but the Animalia King stopped us and declared Bilbo as the Duellist. Luna entered the battle field and told the truth to everyone and also to the King. She and other victims of Bilbo made the Animalia King to realise the true identity of Bilbo. The Animalia King sentenced him to life imprisoned and took back the Duellist title from him. Due to such a punishment, Bilbo tried to attack the King but Luna using the Mystical powers stopped him and Sophia captured him. We four went to the Palace where the Animalia King welcomed us and expressed his gratitude towards us that we revealed the true identity of Bilbo. He told us about the Duellist who once came to Evergreen City and lived here. We asked him who the Duellist was but he said that the legend says that Duellist was a warrior from the Dragon land and maybe he resides in the Forest of Arden. We asked him where the Forest of Arden was. He told that the Forest is near the Southern Evergreen City and is a vast forest. Sophia said that we should meet this Duellist. Sky said that might be he could teach Sophia. Then we decided that we would go to the Forest of Arden and we’ll meet with this Duellist.
We reached the entrance of the Forest. It was just fearful to enter in a thick forest. Bravely, we entered. After travelling for a long, we successfully reached the main part of Forest of Arden. It was very beautiful place. We saw a shrine. Sky touched the shrine and then it began to glow. We were confused. Suddenly, a boy with a sword appeared before us. We were frightened so I drew my sword. He told us that his name was – Truce; he was the famous Duellist who was captured in this shrine by the Dragon King when Dragon King attacked the Animalia Kingdom. Sky asked him if he could teach Sophia. Truce agreed to help us provided that we had to defeat him in a duel. We battle but unfortunately we all our overthrown but Sophia refused to give up. She attacked Truce again and again and finally she, too, was out. Truce was impressed with the will power of Sophia and thus joined our team. We returned to the City and then rested.
14. The Great Wizard
Previously: Sky and Lucas were captured by Bilbo. Next day, the battle of Lucas and Bilbo took place. Luna and other victims revealed the true identity of Bilbo. The King took back the Duellist title from him. We were welcomed at the Palace. The King told us about the Duellist in the Forest of Arden. We saw a shrine in the forest. Defeated by the Truce who was the Duellist and finally Truce joined us.
Now: Next day when I awoke, I saw Sky bed was empty. I went outside to search him but he wasn’t there and then he was killed by an evil wizard. I shouted and realised that it all was a Nightmare. So I went to sleep but I couldn’t take any risk so I decided to protect Sky. The Sun rose, Sophia and Truce went for their training and I and Sky went to the Palace to tell Allan about our plan of invading the Dragon Land and stopping Dragon King from conquering the Animalia Sultanate. We reached the Palace and met the King. We told him about the Invasion plan but he refused to help saying that Animalia Kingdom would be then vulnerable. We made him realise the golden opportunity of defeating the Dragon King forever. The King accepted the plan and then someone arrived who was wearing a black robe. He was looking very suspicious. He told Allan to mobilise the forces to the Eastern Evergreen City. Some dragon soldiers have attacked there. We asked him if he required our help but he said that situation was in his control and so we moved to find the Earth King. We went to the Southern Evergreen City to inquire about the Earth Temple if someone knew.
Meanwhile, in the Western City, Truce was teaching Sophia some special moves of attack but suddenly, someone attacked them. Sophia tried to defend Truce but that evil magi captured him. She ran to tell it to Sky but she, too, was captured. That evil magus took them somewhere. Back in the Southern City, I and Sky were searching for someone who could tell us about the Earth King. I saw an old man who was looking like a priest. I ran towards him to ask him about the Earth King but he refused to tell us anything. We returned home empty-handed. When we returned home, we were shocked as there was no one. We went to the Western City to see for Sophia and Truce but there, too, was nobody. As we were about to go to the Palace, we were ambushed by someone. We were captured. I was fallen unconscious. When I woke, I saw Sophia and Truce bounded to a pillar by a rope. I asked Sophia where Sky was. But she was unknown of what was going on. Then a man under a black robe came. I recognised him as the same in the Palace. He revealed himself as the Evil Magus – Hiroshi. He said, “I am Hiroshi – The Great Wizard in the world and on the behalf of the Dragon King, I am here to end you permanently and to help Nexus and Seraphim to conquer the Animalia Kingdom forever”. We then understood the plan. Sky said, “So that’s why you mobilised the entire forces to the Eastern City so that Nexus could attack the Evergreen City from the Western Part and that’s why you had captured us”. Suddenly, Nexus appears saying, “Finally, everything is going about our plan and soon we will conquer the Evergreen City and also, Sky – The Dragon Warrior will fall along with the Animalia Sultanate”. As he was about to attack us, an old man appeared there. He was the same whom I asked about the Earth King. He released us and attacked Nexus and Hiroshi. I used Luminous Orb and we ran away. The old man then revealed that he was the magician who helped Earth King to establish balance in the world. He said that he had promised the Earth King that he would not tell anyone about the Earth King but that day, due to the circumstances, he had to do so. He told us about the Earth Temple where resides the Earth King but he could be awakened only by the Red Gem Stone. I asked him where we could find that stone. He replied that somewhere in the path to the temple; Red Gem Stone is located but beware of the Guardian. Suddenly, we heard the voices of explosions which made us to realise that we had no time so we decided to go to the Earth Temple while the old man and Truce decided to help the Animalia King.
15. The Centre of the Earth (Part 1): The Earth Temple
Old man and Truce went to help Allan and me, Sky and Sophia went to Central Evergreen Forest. We crossed the Lake and finally reached the Evergreen Forest. When we were crossing the forest, I found a reddish stone. I put the stone in my pocket. We moved continuously as fast as we could and finally we reached the Central Forest but there was no sign of any temple. As we were losing our hope, an idea struck in the Sky’s mind. He said that we should look something odd nearby. We threw our sight in every corner of the forest but we could see anything. Sophia fell suddenly. We asked her how she fell. She told us that she fell due to the root of the big tree. Sky thought that the Big Tree was the key to their problem. There was a cavity in the tree something oval like. Sophia said that it could be a hole for the Red Gemstone. We searched for the stone but we couldn’t find it anywhere. I gave the stone to Sky saying that probably, it could be the Gemstone. He fixed the stone and suddenly, the stone shone along with the tree. Green and red light emerged out of the Tree. Suddenly, the Guardian of the Earth Temple who called himself – Groudono appeared. The land began to shake and Groudono appeared. He said, “I don’t show any mercy on those who wants to conquer the Earth. For those who want to destroy the world, I have a punishment for such an evil. Now demonstrate your powers and prepare for your end.” We didn’t want to fight him but he forced us and he took us to another dimension. There was land everywhere and he was manipulating the earth. He attacked us continuously and we were too weak to fight him. Sophia and I were out. Sky was fighting but he was too tired and finally we all were defeated. We thought that it was our end and suddenly, Luna appeared. She told Groudono about everything. Groudono was sorry for everything and then he revealed the path to the Earth Temple. He said, “The Earth Temple is in the centre of the earth. Move continuously and soon you will reach a Lava Lake. After crossing the lake, you will reach the Earth Temple.” Then he decided to protect the Temple path from invasion. We four went in the tunnel and then we reached the Lava Cave. Everywhere was only Lava, we were confused and we could not cross it. Would this be the end?
16. The Centre of the Earth (Part 2): The Earth King
Previously: Nexus invaded Evergreen City – Sophia, Sky and I went to the Evergreen City and we found a red gemstone and soon we reached the Great Tree. Sky fixed the Stone in the Tree and the Groudono appeared. We all were defeated and the Luna appeared. Groudono told us about the Earth Temple and then we reached the Lava Cave. Everywhere was only Lava.
Now: We finally reached the Lava Cave. Luna used her water powers but nothing happened. I and Luna then used our powers and then we created the path between the Lava. We crossed the Lava Cave and then we reached the Lava Lake. We crossed the Lava Lake and then we reached the Earth Temple finally. We saw the great gate of the Temple but we could not open it. We tried everything to open it and then we used the Red Gemstone. The Gate began to shake and then opened. We entered the temple. Then we crossed the temple and reached the depth. We were finally in the Earth Chamber’s The Core. A statue was before us which were like that of Earth King. Luna used her lunar powers along with the Red Gemstone and then the temperature began to rise suddenly. It was too hot there. After a while, the statue disappeared, we move here and there to find the statue but it was not there. Then Earth King said, “Those who seeks to overthrow the Earth Kingdom, those who threatens the balance of the world, such villains will face my rage. They shall be punished for their heinous crime.” We tried to convince him about the war and that we were there for help but he didn’t believe on us and soon he defeated all of us all at a once. Luna tried to tell him about Nexus and Seraphim and about the attack on the Evergreen City. He seemed to have believed but then he attacked Luna with his full might and then she was completely injured. Then, Nexus and Seraphim appeared there. We were shocked. Nexus said, “Our plan is going right and soon we will conquer the world. Sky, do you know why we didn’t stop you? Because we wanted you to create an easy path for us to reach the Earth King and you did the same. Lucas, you are defeated here too. Sophia, your dream of becoming the Master Warrior has fade away and now, The Earth King shall be presented before our Dragon King who will use his power.” We could not believe that. Nexus and Seraphim attacked the Earth King. He put a brave defence and a good resistance but that was not enough to save himself and the Earth Kingdom. They captured him and then they disappeared. Seraphim took the Red Gemstone and ran away. The Cave began to collapse along with our last hope of saving the world.
17. The End of the Animalia Sultanate
Previously: The Team reached the Lava Cave and crossed the Lava Lake. Finally we reached the Earth Temple and confronted the Earth King. Nexus and Seraphim appeared and took the Earth King. The cave collapsed.
Now: The Cave collapsed and we fell unconscious. After sometime I woke, I was in the Evergreen Forest. I saw Sky, Sophia unconscious so I wake up them. Then we decided to go to the Palace to inform Allan about the upcoming invasion of Dragon soldiers. As we were about to go, we saw the Guardian ‘Groudono’. He was tired, weak and defeated. He seemed to have drained all his powers. Luna tried to heal him but she failed. I asked him what happened. He told us that Nexus and Seraphim arrived there and stole the powers of Groudono and then they went in the Lava Cave. Groudono was extremely weak and his condition was critical. He said that we should go to the palace to stop them otherwise they might conquer the whole Animalia Sultanate. Suddenly we were attacked. Groudono ordered us to leave. We ran as fast as we could and then we crossed the Forest and finally reached the Central Evergreen City. We saw people running here and there. Sky asked what had happened. An old lady said that the Evergreen City was under attack and anytime, the Dragon soldiers might surged through the city. We were shocked that the invasion had begun. We divided into two groups – Group 1 of Sky and Luna who would go to the Palace to save Allan and Group 2 of I and Sophia who would go to the Western Evergreen City to protect it. Sky and Luna went to the palace but they saw many Dragon soldiers there who were attacking them continuously. They defeated them and entered the palace. They were shocked to see the calmness in the Palace. They saw Allan on his throne who was indicating something but we couldn’t understand. Suddenly, Nexus attacked them from behind. There was the Great Wizard – Hiroshi. We couldn’t fight them both. Luna and Hiroshi battled while Sky and Nexus battled.
Meanwhile, back in the Evergreen City, Seraphim was leading the Dragon army and together they attacked the city. I (Lucas) and Sophia tried to stop the forces; we fought the army but Seraphim came in between our victory and us. I decided to battle with Seraphim while Sophia with other soldiers decided to battle with the army. Soon Truce and the old man came there to help us. I defeated Seraphim but he used his last resort and finally the army invaded the palace.
Back in the palace, Nexus defeated Sky and Luna was defeated by the Evil Magus – Hiroshi. Hiroshi captured Allan and finally, we all were defeated. Seraphim captured Truce and the old man and Nexus killed Sky permanently. Luna took Sky and Allan and using Luminous Orb, she escaped from the palace and we together ran away from the city. The hope was crushed forever and the war ended with the collapse of the Animalia Kingdom.
18. The Fugitives
Previously: Team reached the evergreen city – find the king and captured Bilbo – reached the Lava Lake and find the Earth King – Nexus attacked them – Seraphim captured Evergreen City and the Animalia Kingdom fell.
Now: After 3 months since the downfall of Animalia Kingdom:-
In the Dragon Palace, the Dragon King announced their victory over the Animalia Sultanate. He ordered the Dragon forces to occupy the Evergreen City and capture the fugitives. They took the Earth King and Argon in the Ancient Chamber.
Meanwhile back in the Dawn Forest, the team was sobbing over the death of Sky who was the last hope. Lucas was thinking over the future plans because they were the only one who could defeat the Dragon King. Lucas and Sophia went in the jungle to find some wood for cooking etc. They returned to their camp. Luna was meditating to find out the way to revive Sky. Suddenly, she heard a cry. She stood up. Lucas asked her what the matter was. She said that she heard someone’s cry. The sound become louder and then a young girl came towards them asking for help. Luna asked her then she said that a demon was chasing her. Luna, Lucas and Sophia decided to protect her. The demon which surprised everyone came before them. The demon was actually, Seraphim, who were ordered to capture the fugitives. Luna, who was enraged, attacked Seraphim with all her might. Lucas and Sophia helped her. Luna defeated Seraphim who were determined to take revenge of this defeat. After a while, everyone sat near the fire. Luna asked the young girl about herself. She replied, “I am Flare, daughter of Avian Queen – Angelina. I am an Air Twister as well as a healer.” Luna asked her why Seraphim were chasing her. She replied, “Dragon soldiers attacked a tribal village. I went to help the people. As I am the daughter of Avian Queen, I can control time. So, to execute the plans, Dragon King wants me and that’s why he is onslaught. I have been running for 2 days. I thought that Evergreen City could be the best place to hide so I was going to city but thanks to you, you saved me from that evil monster. So should we go to Evergreen City?” Luna said, “Evergreen City has been captured by Nexus and others. We are going to a safer place. You said that you are a healer, can you please revive Sky?” Flare said, “What happened to Sky?” Sophia said, “Nexus killed him.” Flare said, “I will try.” Then Flare healed Sky but she couldn’t revive him. The wound was cured but Sky was gone forever. Flare apologised that she couldn’t revive Sky. Luna asked if there would be another way to revive him. Flare said that Xing could revive him who lives at the Hill of Ancients. So they decided to find Xing and revive Sky.
In night, suddenly, Seraphim who were seeking revenge attacked Dawn Forest with many Dragon soldiers. Luna and others fought them but they were too many and there was not any place to hide so they ran as fast as they could. They crossed Sunshine Mountains and reached Solar Village but they were shocked when they saw their wanted posters. They were declared as runaways. Now they were forced to live like Fugitives. Finally, they reached the Mystery Jungle and stayed there for the night.
