Anna:Yes, I'm alright.You can come in.
Selenia: *comes in* You look beautiful ^_^
Selenia: Now, Don't be nervous. It's been awhile since there was a princess for the Sun. You still aren't old enough, But! (smiles, then takes out a silver tiara (similiar to Selenia's) and puts it perfectly on Anna's head) This queen can change the rules! ^_^
Anna:Thanks Selenia,I feel a bit better.(Hugs her)I just hope I can live up to being princess.
(With J, Sander and Oliver...)
Oliver:[traning by using his combat techniques against a training dummy]
Sander [looks at the castle from atop of the cliff; with a British accent] So I guess my family was right. Royalty do have their heir to the throne. [sighs] Guess I was retired, and I passed my throne to my bloke, Gabriel.
J:[looking at the castle (where Anna is) as well]
(back at the castle)
Queen Selenia: Well, I'd do anything for the princess of the Sun. ^_^ But a reminder, Im not done with being the Queen around here! >:3
Anna:(Smiles)I know,I'm just gald being who I am right now.
(knocks on the door)
Queen Selenia: Hm?
Anna:Okay Kalis,we'll be out in a few minutes.
(Back with J, Oliver and Sander...)
J:I think we should check it out. [carefully slides down from the cliff as he heads to the castle]
Sander:Yeah. [to Oliver] Oliver, you coming?
(Oliver is still training, not paying attention to Sander)
Sander:...I'll take that as a no then. [slides down the cliff with J]
(Both J and Sander slides all the way down onto the ground and they can see the castle, where Anna is, close by)
J:[hides in a bush to avoid detection fromt he guards]
Sander: [looks at J] Why are you hiding, mate? You can Chaos Control yourself inside.
J:Nothing comes out easy, 'cause there's more people inside, Sander.
Sander:[chuckles] You're just being shy, J. While you just stay here and hide your lot, I'm coming up with a plan.
(At the castle)
Anna:Come on Selenia,our guest are waiting for us.
Queen Selenia: Okay okay! ^_^
(In the throne room with all the guest waiting,the announcer sees Selenia and Anna)
Announcer:Noble guest,make way for Queen Selenia and Princess Anna!
(Everyone bows to them both as they went to their seats)
Queen Selenia: We have two Most honored Visitors! Please welcome two retired Queens that have returned!
Anna:Huh?(Trys to remain calm)
Irehana and Shirenya:Thank you for the warm welcome ^_^
Anna:Your welcome.(Bows to them)
Audience:*gaze a them with surprise, then claps*
Queen Selenia:My mother has finally returned from her long death! Please consider her as the heir as well!

Queen Selenia:And thank you to my Grandmother who taken cared of me when I was young...*sniff*
Iriehana:Thank you, Dear...*bows*
Anna:Its an honor to meet my aunt and grandmother for the first time,
(Back with Snader and J, Sander finishes his plan (or so he calls it))
Sander:J, come with me. [walks off to Anna's castle]
J:Uhhh okay... [follows Sander]
(The two walks inside. In the castle)
Anna:Selenia told me so much about you two.
Shirenya:It's been awhile living again ^_^
Iriehana:My granddaughter told me about you too dear ^_^
Anna:(Smiles and tears up a little)If only my mother and brother had been here to see you two...Selenia..(Hugs her and cries)
(Back with Sander and J inside the castle...)
J:So who are we looking for?
Sander:Let's find out soon enough, mate.
J:[sarcastic] I can hardly wait.
(In the throne room eveyone starts dancing and talking)
Sander:[smirks at J] I told ya, mate.
J:Yeah.There's a lot of people inside. Shame Oliver's missing it out.
Sander:He's a mercenary, wha'd you expect?
Anna:(Anna walks in the crowd,and some boys ask her to dance with them,making her blush,then she hears a violin playing)Huh?
(in the crowd thier was a white hedgehog playing the violin skillfully and having a laugh, his smile was radiant)
Anna:Who's that?(Walks over to see him)Hello,what's your name?.(Smiles)
???:*still playing* Memphis at your service! *grins*
Selenia:Well well! Hi memphis ^_^
Memphis:Hiyyo selenia ^_^
Anna:That's a nice tune your playing.
(J and Sander can be seen walking through the crowds that are dancing and talking before they come upon a buffer. The two grabs some of the foods and eats it and they like it)
Selenia:*Bows* It is. It's really nice to see you again, Memph.
Shirenya:*walks up to J and Sander* How are you boys doing?
Sander:Hello there, mates ^^.
Memphis:You too selenia! And you... thank you very much! Care to dance! *just takes Anna's arms and begins dancing with her while just laughing and having a good time*
Anna:(Blushes and smiles while dancing with Memphis)
Selenia:*sighs* All those years of Caring for her are finally slipping...
Iriehana:You should be very proud, dear ^_^
Selenia:More then you can imagine, Grandmother...
Memphis:Your a pretty good dancer *smiles* but I never caught your name before... what may I call you *smiles*
Anna:(Blush and small smiles)Just call me Anna.
(an Armored General walks in and torward the throne)
???:Good Evening Your Majesty, Queen Selenia (bows deep)
Queen Selenia:*bows in return*
???:You look beautiful tonight (takes off helmet to show that he was Gale) Cousin =)
Queen Selenia:Thank you, Cousin *smiles, giving a big hug* I'm so glad to see you after these moments...
Gale:*hugs her* I told you would return did I not \=)
(While this is happening a load crash came though the wall)
Selenia:*gets hit a bit, unconsious*...
Gale:O_O SELENIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *grabs her before she hits the ground*
(Two ugly figures come out of the smoke)
Figure 1:Sorry for crashing the party...
Figure 2:We'll leave as soon as we come for what we're looking for...
Gale:I fought you creatures for a month and now you come to me...FINE (pulls out his sword Wind Walker) Get ready to meet your General in HELL
Demon 1:We're not here for you...
Demon 2:No,we're here for something worth alot more...
Shirenya and Iriehana:Leave this place at once. *walks up to them*
Demon 1:We'll leave soon...
Demon 2:We still need what we came here for...(Evil smiles)
Sander:[stops eating and looks at the demons] Oi, these lots are gonna regret for ruining the party! I'm going to send you blokes to kingdom come!
J:[facepalms] Too obvious, Sander. Literally. [to Demons 1 & 2] If you're gonna go after Selenia or Anna, then you made a fatal mistake of interrupting the party!
Demon 2:How there's no need for senseless fighting,well just take what we want and...
Demon 1:There she is!(Rushes over to what their looking for...which happens to be Anna!)
(The demon draws closer to Anna as she standing there scared and he was about to grab her when...Memphis stops him.)
Memphis:....How stupid you guys to crash a party full of heros *pulls out a blade from light*....
Demon 1:Out of the why runt!
Demon 2:Just give us the girl and we'll leave!
J:That's never going to happen!
Sander:You give royalty in vain, you pessimists (he means bygones)!
Memphis:*chuckles* Yeah right *snaps his fingers and sends a corrupted wave at them*
Demon 1:Hahahaha!Like you vermin can beat us!(Pulls out a iron club)
Demon 2:We are the best in the Demon Army!(Pulls out a sword)
Memphis:Anna! let's go let these guys deal with them! *grabs her arm*
Anna:(Snaps out of it)But,what if they...
Sander:We'll hold these blokes off!
J:I'm with ya there, Sander! Shame Oliver is going to miss this...
Kalis:(Runs over to Anna)Come on,Anna!
Anna:Ok.(Please be safe)(Runs with Kalis and Memphis)
Luke:Looks like you need some help! (holding scythe with the sun behind him)
Demon 2:Just what we need,another one.I'll get the girl and you fight these 3 vermin,got it?!
Demon 1:Got it!
(Demon 2 runs after Anna and her friends. He is suddenly collided head on by Oliver!)
Oliver:[to Demon 2] Going somewhere?
J and Sander:Oliver!
Luke:How dull. (slices at them with his scythe, running towards the others as he attacks)
Demon 2:(Evil smiles and disappears)
Luke: What the...?) Takes scythe and feels the ground)
Oliver:[angered groans] Another day, [pumps his shotgun (which is poison aligned)] another job. [rushes off and goes with Anna and Kalis]
Demon 1:Hahahaha!You'll never escape my partner!He's the fastest demon there is!(Swings his iron club)
J:COPYCAT! [his Chaos aura from his hands form into the replica of Demon 1's iron club and clashes against it to hold him backk while Oliver joins in with Anna and the others]
Gale:I destroyed your army last month...2 will be EASY *swngs his sword at Demon *1
(In one of the halls)
Anna:What did those demons what with me?
Oliver:Not sure, but J and Sander are fending them off.
Kalis:That was the the wrost experince of my nine lives.I hope they can hold out.
???:Hehehehe...I finally find you...
(Everyone sees Demon 2 appear in front of them)
Oliver:Great. [goes into his fighting stance] Just what I needed for the job; killing evil. [to Anna] No offense, but even though i am a mercenary, I'm one of the good guys.
(Gale comes running down the hall jumps and slashes the demon's head off)
Gale:RUN NOW *holds back the demon as another head forms on his neck*
Demon 2:(Evil smiles)Was that supossed to hurt?
Gale:No >=) *becomes Aurora Spirit Gale* But this is... SUN RAY *blasts a huge cannon of Sun energy to disinagrate him*
(In the throne room)
Demon 1:Hahahaha!Is that the best you pipsqueks got?!(Keeps swinging his club)
J:[sees the opportunity and whacks Demon 1's head with his replica of Demon 1's iron club] HYAH!
(Anna and friends run back to the throne room)
Gale:*grabs the Demon* Sun Ray *disinagrates the demon*
Gale:*goes to Selenia who was unconsious on the floor* (picks her up) <=( We need to help Selenia
Oliver:Great, now it's a rescue mission. [looks around] J and Sander isn't here with us...
(As everyone went to help Selenia,the ash of the dead demon spoke)
Demon:Hahahaha...You may had won this time,but more demons will come to take your Sun Princess away from here and trap her forever in our world....
Gale:Then they will meet the same fate:Disinagration.
Selenia:*makes a moaning sound, as some blood appears from a cut on her forehead* Let.....my....
Gale:*looks at Selenia still in his arms* Huh Selenia you ok? <=(
Selenia:*weak smile* As long as your here...
(Back with J and Sander, they seem to have gotten themselves lost inside the castle)
Sander:Great. We're lost,mate.
J:[anime vein] All because you had to lead the way, Sander.
Sander:I did all I could! I've never been into this castle before, J!
J: Riiight.... let's keep moving so we can regroup with the others and Oliver.
(The two continues to walk around to find their friends)
Oliver:I... guess my job is complete, then. [walks away from the group, in search for Sander and J]
(Meanwhile in the Demon World,someone watches his demons fail)
(A demon with bones sticking out of his skull is sitting there watching what happened through a black orb)
???:Pitiful ... simply pitiful ... That is the last time I send those two to do a job like that
???:No matter, it is only a matter of time before my plan unfolds
(Just then, a robot like demon walks in)
???:Sir, you called?
???:Ah Bneda, good to see you, I have something i need you to do
Bneda: (bows down) It would be a pleasure, Demon lord Selmah
(Back with everyone at the castle)
Gale:*sighs* This place is a mess *facepalm* I'm such an idiot Why did I use Sun Ray... I destroyed the castle
Oliver:Speaking of a mess, wasn't J and Sander supposed to be here with us? Or maybe they got crushed along with it thanks to your dumb actions that nearly costed one our friends' lives. [to Gale] I advise you to let me handle this before you cause collateral damage, thus injuring more innocent people.
Gale I=( *sigh* )=( No .......I have to fix this mess
Kalis:Guys,lets go find J and Sander.
Oliver:Yeah, and hopefully, they'll be alright.
Anna:Some of us should stay here in case they come back.
Gale:I'll stay with Selenia and protect her
Oliver:Oh well. [to Kalis] Let's go find them. [walks off]
Kalis:Right.Anna you stay here with Gale and Mac.Me, Oliver and Luke will look for J and Sander.
Kalis:I will!(Follows Oliver and Mazda)
(The four walks off to find J and Sander. Eventually, they find the two, who are buried underneath the rubble!)
(Memphis is seen flying back from an impact of some sort)
(Back with Gale, Macabre and Selenia)
Gale:*tries to use Healing hands on Selenia* Come on Wake Up <=(
Selenia:*wakes up, in a startle* MEMPHIS!
Anna:It's alright Selenia.
Gale:Selenia, your ok *sigh of relief*
Anna:Those demons are gone.
Selenia:Where is he?! I need to find him! (runs off)
(Back with Kalis, Oliver and Luke, Sander frees himself from the rubble with J, unconsious, onto his arms)
Sander:[is beaten up; pants, carrying J onto his arms]
Kalis:You guys okay?
Sander:Yeah... but not to this bloke... J used Chaos Shield
to protect us, but he was too exhausted, it nearly crushed him...
Kalis:J...(Places her hand on him)Chaos Heal!
(J regains his consiousness and Sander puts him down so he can stand to his feet)
J:[groans (his vision was blurry as he wakes up] Selenia...? Sander...?
Kalis:Its alright J,everyones safe.
Selenia:J! (runs, and finally appears again)
Sander:[helps J take him to Selenia]
Oliver:Glad you're okay, J.
Selenia:The- *starts to have a panic cough attack*
J:!!! [sees her cough, rushes, but crawls over to her] Selenia!!
Kalis:I think they are still in the throne room.
J:[hugs Selenia, trying his best to hold back tears]
Selenia, h-h-hang on!! [voice breaking] I-I-I'm here!
Selenia:Go back...the direction....I came from! *coughs alot more, until the point she cant catch her own breath*
Sander:I didn't give J to Selenia so she could end up dying in his arms!
Oliver:[dashes off to the throne room]
Sander:Wait up! [follows oliver, leaving J behind]
Gale:*runs up* SELENIA!!!!!!!!!!!!! *gives her a vaccine to calm the coughing*
Kalis:She says down that way,where she came.
(Back in the throne room with Anna and the two queens)
Anna:I hope they find them.Oh excuse me aunt,grandma,but I need to go get something from my room.
(Anna reaches in her room looking for something)
Anna:Now where are they...Aha find it!(Hold her gold locket)Good thing you guys are safe.(Opens it to see her family)
(just then, a demon like robot is standing on Anna's window-ledge)
???:Glad you found what you're looking for princess, but i'm afraid you have to come with me now.
Anna:Huh?!Who are you?!
???:(jumps out window and stand infront of Anna) Well i guess it's only polite (bows down to Anna then rises) My name is Bneda, third in command of the demon forces, and I have been told to take you to my leader. So if you don't mind, we can do this the easy way, or the hard way.
Anna:(Backs ups slowly)Why does he want me?
Bneda:(straightens posture) 'He' just wants to ... negotiate ... somethings with you, and he hired me to get you so that it is sure that you come alone.
Anna:That's nice of him,but i'm really busy now,so(finds a lamp)No thanks!(Throws it at him and tries to make a run.)
(just then, another demon like robot stand infornt of the door, blocking Anna's escape)
???:Now now princess. Don't tell me you want to dissapoint our leader do you ... because if you do, it'll be the worse decision you ever made.
???:My apologies princess i didn't introduce myself (bows then rises) My name is Rencia, second in command of the demon forces, and brother of that person over there. Unless you want to meet our older brother, i suggest you come with us now, he doesn't like to talk and ALWAYS, gets the target.
Anna:(Did the only thing she could do)Aaaaaaahhhhh!
Kalis:Anna's in trouble!Come on guys.Choas Heal!(Heals Selenia)
Selenia:Kalis...Please don't....It won't work....
Kalis:That's why I got this!(holds a small bottle)I learned how to combine Chaos Heal with the lake's healing water.
Selenia:*coughs a bit, as she feels pain all around* Please don't....It's time for me to disappear....
Kalis:But Anna needs you!So don't give up!
Selenia:*tears up a bit* Anna's already grown up....*starts loosing her breathe* Tell her to...stay good....
(As time passes by, Selenia finally dies...)
KalisNo!Anna made this trick so you two won't lose each other again.(Pours the water on her hands then on Selenia)Choas Heal!
(Luke hears Kalis' cries)
(Back with Kalis with a lifeless Selenia,seeing her trick failed to help.)
Kalis:(Cries)I'm sorry Anna,I tried,but I couldn't save Selenia.
(Luke finds Kalis crying over Selenia's death)
Selenia's Corpse: *her body now feels cold, as a died tear (or two) lay on her face, without moving*
(back with Oliver and Sander, J has already left)
Oliver:If we were to tell J that Selenia's dead, he'll be devastated.
Guy in a dark suit:*appears from the shadows*....Tell him anyway....
Sander:You're crazy, mate.
Oliver:We do that, and J would be permanently heartborken.
Sander:Since his emotions are mentally unstable, it's all up to him to revive Selenia, no matter the cost.
Guy in dark suit:The Crystaline Emeralds used her energy...If you don't tell him and he uses the emeralds, it could cause chaos. Those emeralds aren't for making wishes, each has a spirit. And if the spirits are used more then 5 times, there will be a huge clide and the spirits would fight each other for territory over the world....Don't make it happen.
Sander:.... [to Oliver; nods] Go.
Oliver:Great... Another day, another daunting job. [rushes off the castle to find J]
(Back with Kalis)
Kalis:(See's Selenia's tears)I pomise Selenia.I'll portect Anna.(goes to find the others)
(Kalis finds J with everyone and the queens in the throneroom)
Kalis:Guys,Anna's need help!
Oliver:[arrives with J; about to say something, but keeps himself quiet] Looks like another job for us to... accomplish again, J.
Shirenya and Iriehana:What's wrong dear?
Kalis:I heard her scream.Where is she?
(A Demon is seen looking around... although he does not act like a normal demon or even seems to be in league with the evil doers)
(Kalis see the demon and charges after it)
Kalis:Hey you,what are you doing here?!
???: *Looks at her with his piercing purple and yellow rimmed eyes,clearly angered* WHERE IS ANNA!!! ARE YOU IN LEAGUE WITH THOSE DEMONS!!!!
Kalis:The only demon I see is you!(Grabs a club)Now where is Anna?!
???: *calms himself down* Good I see you are just... *clicks his lock back into place and reverts back into a white hedgehog*.... My name is Memphis, Memphis the Shining Demonhog and I want to put a beat down to anyone who tries to harm Anna *clenches his fist and a spark of light and dark energy flickers*
Kalis:(Remebers him)I remember you.You dance with Anna at the party
Memphis: *nods* Yes I had the pleasure of dancing with the princess... *gets aggitated* And then I coulnd't even PROTECT HER!!!! *growls*
Kalis:She's in trouble and I don't know where she is.
Memphis: Well then I am at your service *grins* so lead the way and I will follow.
Kalis:Come on,I think I know where she might be.
Memphis: Right! Lead the way.
(Kalis with Memphis goes to Anna's room to find everyone there)
Kalis:She's not here?
Memphis:I don't like this one bit....
Kalis:Hey,look at this.(sees a foot print on the floor)
Memphis: *interested*... Who do you think it belongs to?
Kalis:No idea,and there's another one by that broken lamp on the floor.
Memphis: Well then... If there is a trail it is best that we follow it...
Kalis:Yeah.(See something sparkle)What's that?
Memphis: *walks to it and takes a closer look* I have no clue...
Kalis:(Dig for it and grabs it and pulled it out)This is Anna's necklance!She was here!
Memphis:... By the looks of the place a struggle took place here.... that is the most logical answer to all this. *growls* Whoever did this they are going to wish they hadn't.
Luke: (walks up from behind then whistles) Never a dull day with you guys.
Anya:(runs into the room)The demons has been sited outside and they got the princess!
Luke: (sighs) Let's get this over with.
Memphis: Party time *rips off the lock and turns into Demon Memphis*
(Everyone rushes outside to see two robot demons and Anna passed out in one of them's shoulder)
D Memphis: ANNA!!! *growls* those things are going to get a beating!
Kalis:Put her down you freaks!
(Both demons didn't listen to them and runs off)
D Memphis: Bad move creeps *dashes after them on all fours*
Kalis:Get back here with our friend!(Chases after them)
Luke: Why are they always running? (chases after them)
(The heroes chase the demons at a good pace,but haven't gotten any closer)
D Memphis: *growls* This is getting us nowhere... *cringes in pain* I can't keep this form up much longer.
Kalis:Just how can they not be tried?
(The two demons then do a trick and both disappered)
D Memphis: Son of a.... *growls and brakes himself to a stop*... dang them *panting*
Kalis:They just vanished into thin air.
D Memphis: *stands up* No... they did something to throw us off... but I can still sense Anna... Strange...
Anna:Maybe the demons we where chasing are fakes and the real ones went somewhere else.
D Memphis: That is the most logical thing I can think of right now... *cringes in pain again* dang it...
Kalis:You might want to change back before we go back to the castle.
D Memphis: Yeah... sounds like a plan *slaps back on the lock and reverts back to Memphis*...jeez how annoying to be so powerful and so weak at the same time. *panting*
Kalis:Come on.We need to get back to the castle and think of our next move.
Memphis: *nods* Right! *dashes off towards the castle* Come on keep up *laughs*
Kalis:(Dashes next time him)Yep!(Giggles)
???:*appears in the shadows* Why hello there...
Kalis:Who are you?
???: I am Kanonbai the Porcupine...And I have come to do a little..."Deal"...
Memphis: *Growls* Another threat? -thinking: Anna, just you wait I'll save you... just hold out for me-
Kanonbai: I see your thinking about the lost one's cousin, Eh?
Kalis:Are you working with those demons?
Memphis: *getting aggitated clenches his fist and a spark of light and dark energy is seen flickering around his body* Don't mess with me got it!
Kanonbai: We don't work with demons, We create them! That's why we finally killed the queen, my dear....*snaps his finger, as a group is behind* Now, It's our job to kill everything in sight, I hope you join her!
Kalis:Where is Anna!?
Memphis: *his eyes widen* You... you what! *growling* (-thinking- Not good I have to keep my temper or else I will lose myself to my demon instincts again!) *lock glowing with a purple demonic aura*
Kanonbai: You don't understand, Grey Hedgehog! We killed the one called Selenia....She was our arch enemy for years...And we hold control of her body at the time she was weak....*grins* And now, Anna will be meeting up with her in an hour or 2...And don't worry, My beloved rose is somewhere safe, being treated fairly...
Memphis: shut up... SHUT UP!!!!! *the lock cracks and lets out a rush of demonic aura out, Memphis tranforms into D Memphis and he goes into a feral position, his eyes like darkspine sonic's* I'LL KILL YOU!!!!
Kanonbai: *isn't so much surprised* What the matter? You seem tensed...I guess you do understand....*smiles, then goes back* If you want both your friends back....Then you will have to come with me....Gaurds, fight these two! *goes back in the shadows, then dissapates*
D Memphis: *growling like a beast*
Kalis:Wait!Where is she!?
Kanonbai: Anna? She's safe.....For now of course....
Kalis:Why did they take her in the 1st place?What do you and them want from her?
KanonBai: We already killed the moon-spirit...Now for the sun....
D Memphis: *restraining himself*
Kanonbai: Have a little "gift"....*gives Memphis a note*
Kalis:But that would ruin the balance.
One of the demon:You may had made us,but are leader,has other plans for her.
D Memphis: *Attempts to claw at Kanonbai when the note is passed to him but he misses and grabs the note*... *growls*
Kanonbai: *disappears in his shadows*
Note: *sealed with a broken lock*
(All the demons turn to Kanonbai)
D Memphis: I DON'T GET THIS NOTE!!!!
Random demon:Fear not your prinecess will not be killed.
Shahongai Betrayer: I promise it...Now give me the note, and I shall read it for you...
D Memphis: *growls but hands the not to the betrayer*
Kalis:What's it say?
Shahongai Betrayer: I-Its a note from you Queen...Miss Blisslight?
Kalis:Looks like those guys went back to they're leader.
D Memphis: *growling in pain as more demonic aura leaks out from him, the lock was on the floor next to Kalis*
Shahongai Betrayer: P-Please...T-Tell your friend to calm down! Just let me read the note...
Kalis:Here Memphis.(Hands him the lock)
D Memphis: *takes it and slaps it on he revert back to normal but the seal is leaking a demonic aura since it cracked*...
Kalis:What does the note say?
Shahongai Betrayer: Hmm....Dear Family and Friends...As some of you don't know, I have passed away. There is an oncoming affect...
Kalis:I saw her died.
Anna:(Just woke up)Huh?(See that she's in a unknown room)Where am I?(looks out the window)This doesn't look like my home.But how did I get here?Hmm?Ohh,now I remember.Those two robot demons took me,but the after that I blacked out.(And I thought I heard Selenia's,Kalis' and Memphis voices.)Well,I guess I better see if I can get home.(walks to her door)
(The door knob makes a rattling noice and the door opens)
Anna:(steps out the room)I hope I don't run into any-(Sees a robot demon)...demons.
???:(The black robo-demon bows then rises) My name is Skiltre, Our king wishes to see you.
Anna:(This must be the other brother I heard about.I better play along and see what happens.)Okay,please lead the way.
(Skiltre leads the princess past several rooms, all empty or either contain mysterious crates or barrels. Finally they reach the throne room)
Skiltre:(stops infront of door) Before I go in I must ask, do you wish to enter with me or alone?
Anna:Your brother says he want to speck with me alone.But,answer this question,How strong is he?
(Skiltre remained still with his back still facing Anna, but he slightly turned his head)
Skiltre:Let's put it this way ... not even me and my brothers together can beat our king ... but however (Skiltre turned his face forward again) Only one person has ever faced our king and is still alive today (Opens the throne room doors) You may enter.
Anna:Thank you.(Walks into the throne room)
(At the far end of the room, Selmah rises from his throne to great Anna)
???:Ah, princess Anna, how I have waited to see you (Bows as a king would then rises) My name is Selmah, The Bone Demon King (Sits back down in his throne) So tell me princess, what do you think of my kingdom?
Anna:I guess it matches you just fine.
(Selmah straightens his back and croses his arms)
Selmah:However do you mean, princess?
Anna:(lies)That it shows greatness beyond compare,your majesty.
Selmah:(laughs a heart-drilling laugh) Please princess, do you honestly think I believe you? (Stands up) So we can get along better, I can read peoples thought and most of all have an impacable sense of truth (crosses arms again) And you my dear are not speaking of the truth!
Anna:(Shivers)Okay,I don't like it.(Crosses her arms and turns around)I want to go home.(Stats tearing)
Selmah:(walks away from his throne a few steps) Don't try your crocodile tears here princess. I simply wanted our meeting unknown to your so called 'friends'
Anna:(Uses her arm to wipe her face)Why do you want to talk to me?
Selmah:(makes a book appear out of a flash of darkness) Are you familiar with the hatrid between our two kingdoms?
Anna:No.Selenia never told me that.
Selmah:In that case let me explain ... For about 50 years now our two knigdoms have lived in an adjacent, yin and yang if you will, everytime your kingdom's land gains good fortune, our's gains bad, and vice-versa. This was because of the ancients that once lived. Your 4 times over great grandmother and my 4 times great grandfather had a large family dispute and both had decided to swear war against each other ... This war had lasted for 10 years and many had fallen. But a treaty was made from your great great grandomother and my great great grandfather. That treaty states that the two kingdoms must not interfere with one another, not under any circumstances were this oath to be breaken until two weeks ago. This was when I discovered how to make our lands one, so I have been plotting for the past week. (Opens dark book) It is said on the last page of terms that "If the 6th generation of our kind were to make amends, both lands shall gain equal strife and equal luxury".
Anna:Amends?But what does it have to do with me?And you?
Selmah:(makes the book disappear in another flash of darkness) There are three ways we can make amends ... one is to become friends, and I don't see that happening do you?
Anna:No...And what's the other two?
Selmah:The second is that we make ALL of our citizens forgive each other for what has been done, but then again because of two of my demons interference from before, I doubt they will forgive easy ... am I correct?
Anna:I guess your right.And the 3rd?
Selmah:(made a devilish grin across his face) The thrid is simple ... all you have to do ... is let me be the king of your land and you the queen of mine for a day, so we can truly understand the lives each kingdom has, as if we both see and admit that the life of the other kingdom is worse than the others ... then and only then can the oath be broken.
Anna:(Shocked)That's crazy!Isn't there any other way,then doing any of those?
Selmah:(the grin widens even more) The only other way, is for you to be my bride, and I think option three is better than this option don't you?
Anna:(Step back shocked still)Your bride?!But I'm still young.
Selmah:As am I (uses his dark power to reduce him to his real age) As you can see I am still young, but my parents have lent me the trick of increasing my age at will so other kingdoms wont realise that the great demon king is but a mere child (lifts head high in pride) so I have finally decided, as an act of peace, that I share this information with you if you wish (raises age back to 25 years)
Anna:(Bows down)I'll keep your secret even in death.
Selmah:(has a wierd feeling of gratitude rush over him but he quickly ignores it) I am greatful princess ... BNEDA, RENCIA, SKILTRE! (few seconds later Bneda walks through the throne room doors with his brothers in tandom, They all bow towards their king and Anna)
Bneda:You callled sir?
Selmah:Yes I did, I was wondering if you could take the princess to the training field, I wish to teach her the art of aging ...
Rencia:(coiled) But sir isn't that art strictly for those of your bloodline?
Selmah:(shot Rencia a glance of pure evil)You dare question me?
Rencia:(coils again) Sorry King Selmah.
Bneda:(glances at Skiltre then Selmah) Sir I think Skiltre should take her there ... Rencia and I have matters we wish to talk to you about first.
Selmah:(Walks back to his throne) Fine,Skiltre take Anna to the field (turns to the princess) I shall be with you momentarily princess, forgive me.
Selmah:You wish to learn my ancestor's technique don't you? We'll need a big field because you need to accomplish somethings first.
Skiltre:(turns to Anna) Shall we be on our way, princess?
Anna:I guess so.
(Skiltre leads Anna out of the throne room, and as soon as the doors close, Bneda begins to talk)
Bneda:Sir, we have news to report from Princess Anna's friends from her kingdom
Selmah:(sits in his throne) perfect, so what is the status on them.
Rencia:It has seems that they know that the princess is missing sir ... it is only a matter of time before they come looking for her here.
Selmah:(Gets up from his throne and walks to the door) Do what you deem neccessary to stop them from getting here, even if it means resorting to 'it', it will ony be a matter of time before the princess has already agreed to the third option ...
Bneda:But what if she doesn't
Selmah:(gives Bneda a blank look) We will cross that bridge when we get there.
(Walks out of the thone room)
(Meanwhile with Skiltre and Anna)
(Skiltre takes the princess through another set of halls in the castle, taking her past a group of demons who seem to like the princess walking past as they talk about how nice she is ... But also through another group of demons who seem intent on killing her, but Skiltre shot them a dark and empty look, then they walked away)
Anna:Hey,why does your king want to teach me his trick and why are some your demons looking at me?
Skiltre:(Keeps his head straight and his voice down so only Anna can hear) The demons that are looking at you in admiration believe that you can bring this land to peace and bring it the good fortune it deserves ... As for the demons that look at you in depise think that you are the reason why this land is nothing but a barren wasteland and your kingdom is lush and teeming with life ...
Anna:I see.Sure my kingdom has that,but we also have our problems.But why does the king want to teach me?
Skiltre:His motives for teaching you the ancient skill of age manipulation is unkown, but I assure you ... he does it on his own will, not for the will of others ...
(Shows Anna the large outdoor field. it has many old and creepy trees and alot of the land has crevases and fissures in them)
(Just then, Selmah appears in a flash of darkness as Skiltre left Anna on the field)
Selmah:Sorry for the little wait ... Shall we begin princess?
Anna:Um yes.(Sees a flower)A flower?
Selmah:(Walks over to the flower and kneels down for a closer look) No princess. (touches the 'flower' and it changes into some 5 legged insect creature and scurries of into the hollow tree) That is what we call a Daisect, a type of insect that disguises itself as a flower to inject non-demons with lethal poison (stands up) But don't worry, it won't harm you as long as you touch it's legs and ONLY it's legs.
Anna:Okay.But why do you want to teach me your trick?I never asked to learn it.
Selmah:(straightens his back) Like I said in the throne room, I will teach you this technique as an act of peace, and in return, I simply want to learn an attack from you if it isn't so much to ask?
Anna:Okay.But what do you want me to teach you?
Selmah:(Faces Anna and shows her a face of no emotion what-so-ever) All I want t learn is a simple healing technique that can save people from the brink of death, if you know of such a move, you can teach it to me before or after I teach you my technique (holds out a hand to shake so they can seal the deal)
Anna:I do know Chaos Heal.
Selmah:(gives the princess a digusted look) Please! Don't trifle me with those petty healing techniques! (facial expression is serious now) If you don't know a good technique, healing or not, I refuse to teach you the ways of aging.
Anna:There is one I'm trying to invent,It has to do with Chaos Heal and the magical healing lake water.But I don't know if it works.I hope that it would revive those who are dying so no one would feel sad.
Selmah:Hmmm ... (snaps his fingers) Then it is settled, I will teach you the technique of aging, and once you perfect this technique you are working on you can teach me (holds hand out again to seal the deal) Do we have an agreement, princess?
Anna:Alright,but also after this teaching,will you let me return home?
Selmah:(grins) Of course princess, after we learn what we wish, I will send my three robo-demons with you so you get there safely (moves hand closer to Anna) So do we have a deal?
Anna:(Slowly moves her hand to Selmah)D-Deal.
Selmah:(grin widens) Perfect ... (grabs Anna's hand and Selmah's hand become shrowded in darkness. As this is happening a mark of an X has appeared on the back of Anna's hand, and then it disappears as if it wasn't there)
Anna:(Shivers)What was that just now?
Selmah:(takes hand back) That was nothing but some some reassurance ... The now invisible mark on your hand simply makes sure that you keep to what you agreed on, nothing more, nothing less.
Anna:What happens when the deal isn't kept?
Selmah:Lets cross that bridge when we get there (the same identicle mark appears on Selmah's chest but in the color yellow, then it too disappears) I will know if you broke the promise as you will know if I brake the promise (devishly grins) I may be young little princess ... But I am smart beyond all recognition ...
Anna:(Rubs the back of her hand)I just hope everyone's okay.
Selmah:That is exactly the news that Bneda and Rencia wanted to tell me! They told me that your so called friends are worried for you, but I think it is best if they do not know of your whereabouts.
Anna:I don't even know how I got here.But I know Selenia and Kalis are worried sick about me.
Selmah:(has a confused look on his face) Of all the books and manuscripts I have read over the past three years I have never heard of such a word ... tell me, what does 'worried' mean?
Anna:Your kidding!?It's means to show concern for those you care for.Haven't anyone you know showed you cocerned?
Selmah:(saddened expressionon his face) I am the last child to be born in this kingdom, I have no "friends" or "parents" or "loved ones" all I have are the three robo-demons who have all taught me how to fight and how to care for myself, and they have never been concerned or worried about me.
Anna:How sad.Well,maybe I'll be your friend,if you want.That way you'll learn how it feels.No strings attached.
Selmah:(the sad expression disappears and it is now a face of both gratitude and confusion) You s-sure? The last person who said those exact same words stole my greatest treasure and ran to another kingdom ... I just can't risk that from happening again ...
Anna:Well like you say I can't leave till I teach you my skill and I said I'm still making it,Besides what would I steal from you?
Selmah:(turns to face Anna and he meets her eyes) I wouldn't know, but I still can't risk that same feeling I got from when my ex-friend betrayed me ... (starts crying and turns away from Anna) I don't even have the other demon's trust! They fear me and thats why they obey me ... not because I am a great ruler but because of the curse that my father had bestowed upon me! (gains control of himself and straightens his back) *sniff* But none-the-less, you have a technique you need to perfect, I will have Skiltre watch over you as you complete this and you may ask him to bring you supplies, that is if it is okay with you?
Anna:Yes,that's fine.I would also ask for some free time to clear my head and protection.(Looks at her dress that's coverd in dirt)And perhaps something not dirty to wear?
Selmah:Sure,Skiltre! (Skiltre appeared in a few moments)
Skiltre:(Bows)You called my king?
Selmah:Yes, I would like that you show Anna to her room in which she woke up in, also I would like you to be her personal body guard and guide of the kingdom while she stays, anything she asks, she gets unless I forbid it understood?
Skiltre:Understood my king, will there be anything else?
Selmah:Yes.The princess wishes for some garments, have our tailor bring some clothes for her to her room so she can get dressed. (turns to Anna) I shall be in my throne room or in the castle's library if you wish to see me Anna, is that okay?
Anna:Yes and thank you.(Bows and smiles)
Selmah:No need to bow, you are a princess, but none-the-less I will leave you to what you wanted to do. (disappears in a flash of darkness)
Skiltre:(stand up) Shall I take you to your quarters princess?
Anna:Yes you may,and please just call me Anna.
Skiltre:Yes ... Anna ... (shows the princess through the hallway and stops infront of her room) Here are your quarters Prin- ... I mean Anna ... I shall be standing outside if you need anything, and as for the clothes that the tailor has given you (a small box has been left infront of the door) I guess that would be it ...
Anna:(Picks it up)I guess so.(Yawn)
Skiltre:I see you are tired (walks to the room next to Anna's) Coincidentely my room is here, remember, if there is anything you request, I am here for you Anna.
Anna:Thank you,Skiltre.(opens her door)I'll see you when I'm awake.
Skiltre:Good night princess (enters his room and closes door)
Anna:You too.(Enters her room and closes the door)
(Anna changes into a nightgown to sleep in and looks at a mirror)
Anna:Not a bad gown,for some demons.(Walks to her bed,lays down and pulls up the sheets,and looks at the moon and starts tearing)Everyone...(Then she drifts to sleep)
(Meanwhile at the Anna's castle)
Kalis:(Finds tears in her eyes,puts her fingers on it and looked at them)Anna?
(At Anna's kingdom)
Kalis:(Finds the others)Guys,I just felt Anna!
Memphis:*he is seen trying to fix his lock*.... Grr darn it... *looks at Kalis* I'm sorry Kalis you say something?
Kalis:Anna's crying.(Looks in his eyes)You have them too.
Memphis:Huh Anna's crying? *clearly confused* I have what now?
Shirenya:*comes back* What's going on?
Kalis:For a momet,I felt Anna called out to me.
Memphis:*snaps the crack in the lock back into place* Got it! *gets up* Well then, if she called you wouldn't it be rude not to answer the call? *smiles*
Kalis:True but we should plan ahead first.
Anya:(Walks up to them)That would be wise.(crosses arms)She's already in the demon's kingdom,and going there without a plan means death to the unprepared.
Memphis: Strategy *smiles* I like the way you guys think... If I can get a layout of the place I can help with that!
Kalis:Miss Anya,do you have a map or something about the demon's home.
Anya:Yes,it's in the ancient part of the library,that only the royal family and their bodyguards can enter.Follow me.(Leads them to the library)
(In the library)
Memphis:*he is seen looking at multiple layouts* Hmm... Ok... *he runs and comes back with another layout*... wow how foolish *chuckles*.... Hmm.
Anya:(Pulls a book out and blows it)This is the one.
Kalis:That looks realy old.
Anya:It is.It was made by Anna's 4 time's great grandmother.
Memphis:All this is so amazing *laughs* Oh is that it? May I see it?
Anya:Yes,just be careful,its very fragle.(Hands it to Memphis)
Memphis:*flips through the book and then sits down and begins writing something*.................... Ok, from the info I got there are three hundred weak spots.... but only two are avaible to a small group like us.... *begins drawing a layout* This will take some time so please be patient.
Kalis:(Just hold on Anna.We're coming for you.)
(Meanwhile in the Demon's Castle)
Anna:(Dreaming of her childhood)
Young Anna:Hahaha!Mommy!Big brother!
Young Anna:(Runs to her mom and brother and hugs them)
(Back with Sander...)
Sander: Blast! This hallway is like a maze! [shrugs] J is DEFINATELY not going to like this one bit when I tell him Selenia's a goner. [sighs] I'm thankful that the bloke Oliver is taking care of this. For now...
Anya:The body of her Highness is encased in crystal as the princess asked
(Back in Anna's dream,then everything turns to fire)
Young Anna:Huh?Mommy?Big brother?Where did you go?
(Sees her family on the ground and a stranger staring at her)
Younger Anna:What did you do to them?(Starts crying)
Stranger:Just gave them the royal treatment,but I'll spare you for the time being,the moon child will need the sun child.(Smiles evily)Till then little one.(Disappers into the night)
(The rest of her dream shows her through her life with Selenia and all her friends,then she finds herself in a dark void)
Anna:Where am I?Where is everyone?(Then she see's 3 figures)Selenia,the stranger and Salmah)Selenia!(Tries to hug her,but then she disappears,then Salmah does the same,leaving her alone with the stranger)No...
Stranger:Looks like your all alone princess,(Pulls out a dagger and holds her down)But you'll soon be joining them!
Anna:Nooooo!(Then wakes up with sweat on her face)
(Skiltre barges in, a dark aura around each fist)
Skiltre:PRINCESS, ARE YOU OKAY?
Anna:(Pants)I'm fine Skiltre,I just having a nightmare,no need to be alarmed.
Skiltre:(sigh of relief and the dark aura disappears around his fists) okay then,I wish you a well night for the rest of the night princess (walks away)
(Meanwhile in the library)
(Selmah has fallen asleep in the big book of the ancients after reading for more ancient techniques)
(In his dreams it shows Selmah in his childhood, when he was cared for by all three of the robo-demons)
Young Selmah:Bet you can't catch me! (runs behind twisted tree after twisted tree)
Rencia:Of course we can't little sir, you are to good for me (laughs)
Bneda:(appears behind Selmah and catches him) I guess I win the bet (smiles)
Young Selmah:(starts wriggling) No fair! I can't use chaos control yet NO FAIR! (starts pouting)
(Skiltre walks in through the castle doors with a peice of paper)
Skiltre:It's for you little sir ... Iit's from your father
(Younger Selmah is let go by Bneda, but as he runs towards Skiltre to get the note, the note catches fire and everything slowly disapates in the darkness)
Younger Selmah:Skiltre? Bneda? Rencia? Where are you guys?
(Suddenly a stranger appears in the darkness, holding the cloak that Selmah's father once owned)
Younger Selmah:Who are you and what have you done with my father?
Stranger:*chuckles* All in do time you dark little runt!
(The stranger lunges towards Selmah with his hands out stretched to strangle)
Selmah:AUUUGH! (wakes up and looks around the room alarmingly) I guess it was a dream ..... (Continues on reading the ancient book of techniques)
(In Anna's room)
Anna:(Lays on her bed thinking of her dream)(What was that all about?Could the stranger I saw part of that group mother told me about)(flashback)
Dawn:Anna,there this group that you should always be careful of.
Young Anna:What that mommy?
Selenia:The Sanhongai.They kill those who they see as trouble.So be warned my dear,and you will shine though.(End flashback)
Anna:(Well,I better get some sleep)Yawn.(Closed her eyes and went back to sleep)
Anna:(Sun shines in her face and wipe her eyes)Mmm...Good morning Sun...
(There is a knock at the door)
(A lady demon sticks her head through the door)
Lady Demon:Princess, I have been sent by Selmah to request what you will have for breakfast.
Anna:What's for today?
(The lady demon walks in)
Lady Demon:We have anything and almost everything my dear princess (bows)
Anna:Wow.Umm,lets see,I guess two slices of toast would be fine with a glass of milk,if that's alright?
Lady Demon:(bows) Thanks princess, Skiltre will show you the way to the dining room (Leaves the room and closes the door behind her)
Anna:Now to change into something besides this nightgown.(Goes behind a changing stand and puts on a simple light blue dress)This look nice.(Goes to a mirror to brush her hair)
(There is another knock at the door)
Skiltre:Princess? It is Skiltre ... are you ready to go to the dining room?
Anna:(Opens her door)Yes I'm ready.(Smiles)Please lead the way.
Skiltre:Indeed (takes the princess a few halls down and then they both enter a room where Selmah, a few of his elite commanders, and the other two robo-demons are sittting at a table, waiting for the meals to come ... Skiltre takes his seat between his brothers)
Selmah:(strands) Good of you to join us Princess Anna ... (pulls out the empty chair right next to him) Please, take a seat.
Anna:Thank you.(Sits in the chair)
Selmah:(sits back down, and eyes his elite commanders making sure they don't say anything they would regret) So how was your night at the castle Anna?
Anna:It was pretty good,beside the bad dream I had.
Selmah:(signals for all his commanders andd the robo-demons to leave for the conversation) (after they leave, Selmah speaks) Strange ... i had a bad dream last night as well ... and i am generally used to them but this one was different ...
Selmah: Yes ... This dream had a different feeling to the usual ones (Turns to Anna) Why? What kind of dream did you have last night?
Anna:(looks sad and starts tearing)My childhood.First it was good,then it turned to the night my family was gone,then I seen my whole life before me,then(paused for a bit and hugs herself)The same one that took my mom and brother,was about to take my life,and I was alone.
Selmah: (Surprised look on his face) Really!?! The same thing basically happened to me (face is no longer surprised and Selmah looks serious) I saw the day when i last got a letter from my father ... but as i ran to recieve the note ... evrything just disappeared even though it didn't happen in real life ... then this, strange person who i never saw before (eyes go teary) he ... he had my fathers cloak, and said that he was going to get me next ... the last thing i remember was him lunging towards me ... and then i woke in the library (tear runs down Selmah's face)
Anna:(Hands him her hankercheif)Sounds like we share the same past.(Smiles with tears)
Selmah: (Shakes his head but manages a smile) Thank you princess, but i don't think that we share the same past (gives the hankercheif back to Anna, then wipes his eyes with his wrists)
Anna:I didn't see his face,but I guess he's a member of The Sanhongai my mother told me about.
Selmah: (Shudders and is about to make a comment when)
(doors open and the same lady demon who saw Anna about her breakfast appears with a cart)
Lady Demon: Breakfast is ready!
(Wheels around to Anna and Selmah, handing Anna what she wanted and handing Selmah a bowl of nutri-grain and two slices of toast and jam)
Lady Demon: Enjoy! (leaves with cart)
Anna:Well,we better eat before our breakfest gets cold.
Selmah: (smiles) How can cereal get cold? *laughs* (saddened expression on face as he eats the toast) It's been a long time since i have made a joke and had a good laugh ...
Anna:(bites her toast and shallows)I think you should keep doing it.
Selmah: (finishes toast) i would, but then how would the citizens see me (takes a spoon full of cereal) The people here want a strong leader, not a leader who mkes jokes just too pass the time ... they want a leader ready to fight as soon as there is word of war or conflict (eats the cereal)
(Some vines immediatly come out of the floor, seemingly controlled by somebody or thing)
Anna:What is that?
Selmah: *jumps up* I have no idea.
(The vine moves toward Anna)
Anna:(Get up quickly)I think it after me.
Selmah: *spreads hand and makes a ball of darkness surrounding the vines, stopping them from moving* *drops hands and moves forward to inspect the vines* Strange, i have never seen this kind of vine in demon castle ... and we have an encyclopedia full of them ...
(A figure immediatly comes out of the ground, wrapped inside of the vines) Who are you!?
Anna:(Stands as she wonder whats happening)
???: I said, tell me who you are! NOW!!!
Selmah: *unsurprised, straightens his back and stand without fear* It is rude and unwise to ask for a name without giving your own first, especially since you are talking to the king around here and the sun princess.
Anna:My names Annamaria,but just Anna will do,so please calm down.
???: So your not any of the Pyrokinetics or Umbrakinetics then?
Anna:No,but I am a solarkinetic.
(Meanwhile back at the castle)
Memphis:Whew and we have our entry already.
Kalis:So if we go to this path we'll get there without running into the demons.
Anya:It's a slim chance but it's are only chocie in the matter.
Memphis:Sure is,eveyone get what you need to get to the Demon's Kingdom.We'll leave once you finish.
Kalis:You coming Anya?
Anya:No,I need to stay here and protect the kingdom in case of a attack.
(Back at Demon's Castle after the whole vine incident)
Anna:Hey Selmah,where is the place I'll be practicing my trick?
Selmah: As part of the deal i said you have access to all the resources you need, and skiltre will be your personal body guard, once you have a technique to trade for the ageing technique, then we will exchange these techniques.
Anna:I know,but there's a catch to this trick I'm learning.It could only work when someone dies of unnatual deaths.
Selmah: Many demons here suffer from cancer and from a unknown disease *walks to window* Those with cancer are place in intensive care there where the cancer is slowed but not stopped ... as for the others ... *turns from window* the disease they get causes them to die in three days, no symptoms, but a large circle appears on their eye on the first day ... as far as we know it isn't contageous ... so does that help?
Anna:I don't know.I can't cure evertyhing,I'm not a god.I can only do so much.It's just if someting got killed in battle this trick can work.I died once some time ago.
Selmah: *intigued* Really? Well if you need injured people or close to death people. I have a Demon scout driving a car full of people on the brink of death, taking them to our hospitals to give the support they need ... And if that isn't enough then i am sorry princess, but i can't help any more than that.
Anna:Alright then.I'll do my best to tend to them.Where are the hospitals?
Selmah: Skiltre will show you where the hospitals are, mainly because we have multiple hospitals, each specialising in a specific disease or ailment ... I would show you myself but i have matters to attend to.
Anna:Alright.I need to tell him what I'll need anyway.
Selmah: I bid you good luck princess, i will see you after for lunch *Selmah dissappears in a cloak of darkness*
Anna:(Sits back in her chair and waits for Skiltre)(I hope everyone's alright)(Wipes a tear off her eye)
(Back at the castle)
Memphis:Alright guys,let move out.
KalisWe'll be back with Anna soon Anya.Keep watch of the place till we return.
Anya:Good luck,brave ones and safe journey.
(The heroes set out to the Demon's Kingdom,back at Demon's Castle)
Anna:I feel uneasy sitting here by myself.
Skiltre: *Walks through the doors* Princess Anna?
Anna:Hey Skil,good thing your here.(Smiles)
Skiltre: ??? Who is this Skil?
Anna:(Giggles)Your nickname.Like my name's Annamaria,but everyone calls me Anna.I decide to call you Skil.Is that okay with you?
Skiltre: No one has never had a ... nick name before ... but i guess that will be alright princess.
Anna:Friends always give they're friends nicknames.Anyway,do you feel someone watching us just now?
(Sander and Oliver, who refuses to tell J about Selenia's death, knowing that it'll only make him worse than before, watches Anna and Skiltre whilst avoid being detected)
Sander: [whispers to Oliver] These demons will regret for killing Selenia, and we're gonna have to find a way to revive her.
Oliver: [whispers to Sander] That's why J has his Moon Spirit form to do so. I'll make sure these pathetic demons will be receive a one-way ticket to hell, and they will never return... at all...
Sander: What about the guy who warned us that J shouldn't be reviving Selenia?
Oliver: Forget him. J already lost his adpotive sister once. One dead relative is enough to sever his emotions. Another of his dead relative will only make him worse.
(The two remains hidden, spying on Anna and Skiltre before Oliver can formulate a plan)
(Anna and Skiltre took a ride from a horse drawn carriage to the hospital)
Anna:(I wonder if their hospitals are like ours and I still feel like we're followed.But who is it)(She stares out looking at what passes by)
(Both Oliver and Sander remains perfectly hidden and well undetected. Oliver is still trying to formulate a plan while Sander keeps on a lookout whilst avoiding being seen)
(Back at the Castle)
Anya:Guards!I want this place fixed so that no more demons will walk in and attack the rest royal family!
Gaurds:Yes ,our Lady!(Runs around cleaning up the mess)
Anya:(See's J helping)Thanks for helping us,Sir J.
J: Yeah. No prob.
Shirenya:Oh,my sister,please watch out for your child as I did for mine.(Starts crying)
Iriehana:(Place her hand on her)Now now Shirenya,Anna will be fine.She takes after her mother after all.
J: ... [continues rebuilding the castle]
(Meanwhile kalis group is still traveling)
Memphis:(Looks at the layout)Once we get to this dead tree,we'll find some jagged mountian,which will lead to the demon's kingdom.
Kalis:Alright,come on guys keep up!
(At the demon's hospital Anna gets out the carriage and enters the building)
Doctor:Welcome,you must be the princess that's here to help?
Doctor:Very well,please follow me to needy ones our king told you.
(Anna follows with Skiltre behind to the healing room. Oliver and Sander quietly follows Anna and Skiltre inside, but keeps their distance to avoid being seen by them)
(In the healing room,their are some who are badly hurt to the point of death)
Doctor:Here they are,please do your best to help them.(He leaves the room)
Anna:(comes to the 1st demon wrapped all over his chest)Don't worry.I'm here to help.(Sweet smiles)
Anna:Okay,Skiltre,would you please go bring me some herbs.(Writes them down and gives it to him and he leaves to get them,and she turns to the demon)Now lets change those bandages.
(Outside, Oliver, wielding his sniper rifle with the Silencer attachment as well as hidden behind thich bushes, along with Sander, takes aim at one of the demons)
Sander: [whispers] Are you sure this would work?
Oliver: [whispers] Trust me, no one is immune to poison. [fires his sniper rifle (which lets off hardly a saound) at the demon, with marksmanship accuracy]
Anna:(Holds the hurt demon,as his bed got shot,she remembers the bullet)Please stay here,I'll go check.(looks out the window)(Sander?Oliver?Are you here?)
(The two racers do not respond, knowing that they have been spotted. They keep themselves quiet without making any sound)
Anna:(Sighs and smiles)(It's alright you two,I won't let anyone know your here.)
(Sander and Oliver remains hiding undetected, knowing that Olvier's Sniper with the Silencer attachment didn't go as planned)
(Soon Skiltre come back with the herbs)
Anna:Thank you Skiltre,theses are just what I need.Would you please wait outside for me?
(Skiltre did just that)
Anna:(goes to heal the demons)
(Back with Sander and Oliver, the two are forced to wait until Anna and Skiltre leaves the hospital after healing the demons)
Sander: [whispers to Oliver] Plan B?
Oliver: [whispers to Sander] PLan B. For Selenia. For our legend.
(The two lies in wait)
(Meanwhile with Kalis's group)
Kalis:Here's the died tree!
Memphis:Good,now we have to take this path to avoid the demons.(Points to a ruined path)
(At the hospital Anna and Skiltre got on the carriage and head back to the castle. The two racers watches them leave as Oliver starts "Plan B")
Sander: [watches Anna and Skiltre leave as Oliver starts to use his C4 (poison-aligned)]
Oliver: [finishes setting his his C4s to "armed"] There. Let's move, Sander. For Selenia. For our legend driver.
(The two heads inside the hospital where the demons are while Anna and Skiltre returns to the castle)
Anna:Oh,let's go back.I forgot something.
(They return to the hospital and went back to the room of the hurted demons)
Oliver and Sander: !!! [suddenly spots Anna and hides inside an empty room to avoid detection]
Hurted lady demon:(Giggles)You forgot this,princess.(Holds her necklance)
Small demon:No thank you for helping us,princess.
(The racers watch, undetected in the shadows, as the Lady Demon gives Anna her necklace)
Anna:I was never told how demons were like.But seeing all of you.How can you guys be bad?
Male demon:Don't believe everything princess not all demons are killers.
Lady demon:He's right,some of us have families like you do.
Smal demon:And jobs as well.
Oliver and Sander: [remaining in the shadows, waiting] ....
Anna:(Sigh)You can please stop hiding there.
Male demon:Yeah,your smell gave you away.
(Oliver and Sander, realizing that they have been spotted, split up in different directions (though their speeds are quick, like ninjas, making it hard to see).
Back with J, he has left the castle to avenge Selenia's death, amid his emotions suffering through grief, anger and sadness)
J: [struggles to maintain his emotions under control] These foolish.... killing Selenia.... a costly mistake....! I already lost my adpoted sister, but killing my other sister is FAR ENOUGH!
(His emotional disorder spirals out of control, which is enough to turn him into his darker side; Rai!)
Rai: You demons... will die at my hands... [resumes walking to find the demons and their leaders (ranging from Selmah to Shahongai)]
(While finding the demons and the leaders, Rai can hear voices in his head. He ignores it, however. Back with Anna)
Anna:If you two came to save me please leave me here.
(The two racers have already left. Back with Rai...)
Rai: [looks at the hospital and can sense the demons and Anna inside the facility; smiles malevolently, then turned dmeented before turning himself into darkness as he goes to the facility]
Anna:I'll stay here and protect you guys till this passes over.
(Outside, Rai, who has sensed Anna inside, waits)
Rai: [emerges from the darkness and is forced to wait outside, knowing what is happening inside] .....
(Rai can see Sander bolt out of the hospital, with Oliver remaining inside)
Rai: [thinking] Looks like he wasn't able to get the job done... Ah well, time for me to teach these pathetic fools a lesson the will never forget... [forms into a shadow and emerges inside the hospital]
(Inside the hospital...)
Anna:(If I leave, these demons will get killed,I can't leace even if I'm rescued)(Looks at her hand)(Selmah will know then)
(A dark figure appears before Rai)
???:Stops this foolish rage of yours before you hurt the sun princess as well.
Rai: [still in his shadow form instead of his hedgehog form] ....
(At the third floor of the hospital...)
Oliver: [spots a wounded demon inside the room and goes inside; pulls out his knife] I'm going to teach you a lesson of what it's like to wrongfully kill Selenia...
(Skiltre stands in front of him and knocks the knife out his hand)
(Skiltre picks up the demon and teleports to the room Anna's in)
Anna:Skiltre what's going on?
(Skiltre explains to her whats going on)
Anna:Thank you for not killing them.
(Skiltre teleports Anna and the demons away from the hospital to the castle)
Oliver: [growls] Nobody interferes my job... [walks off from the hospital in search for Skiltre]
(the stanger talks with Rai)
???:Your going to ruin alot of things if you do this Rai.Calm yourself and listen what I have to say.
Rai: [forms back into his original, but different hedgehog form] ...How did you know my name? And what makes you think I would ruin "a lot of things"?
???:All will be explan in due time.But for now leave the demons alone.Your princess is making peace with them as we speak.
Rai: After what they did to Selenia? [scoffs]
???:(Spakes his head)She has no idea that her cousin is gone.She still thinks she is alive and well.
Rai: Let her be then. But J, who is my good entity, is unable to speak right now. He already lost his adoptive sister, but having Selenia, his older sister, killed, is one of the most fatal mistakes these demons have ever committed.
???:I know,but going after weak demons who are already near death will not ease your rage.
Rai: And standing here while Anna and the others are making peace with the others will make thigns worse, seeing as how they could plan on taking over the castle and turning the others into slaves...
???:And has that happen?Last I check the kingdom is still there and the demons are just doing what Selmah ask them,So he never gave them an order to do that yet.
Rai: It's best to be aware of what's about to happen next, seeing as how I can tell that Selmah and the other demons are evil...
???:(Chuckles)That may be true,but have you seen Skiltre behaver when he took Anna and the demons away from here.Your friend Oliver should be thankful he's alive.
Rai: He's a mercenary, what do you expect?
???:Skiltre is the strongest demon of Selmah army.Not even a merce could live when he fights.
(Back at the castle in one of the castle wings)
Skiltre: *expressionless* Princess, who exactly were those people back there?
Anna:My friends,J,Sander and Oliver.And I have no idea how they got here.
Skiltre: I see ... *turns around and head to the door* You do understand that i must inform King Selmah about this?
Anna:Are you going to kill them?Please don't do it.
Skiltre: *turns around to face anna* That is not up to me Anna ... I only obey King Selmah and for the time you are here i obey you aswell ... but the king's word is stronger than yours *turns around and opens the doors* If the king orders it, then i have no choice but to kill your friends ... while i am gone i request you help my brothers, they would appreciate it *walks away*
Anna:(Starts crying and sloups to the floor)Selenia,I'm scared.Where are you?(Continues to cry)
(all of a sudden Selmah and Skiltre teleport into the room)
Selmah: Princess, is what i hear true? Your friends are here in Demon territory? *sees Anna crying* What on earth are you crying for princess?
Anna:It's the fact they'll be killed,and I could never bare that.
Selmah: Who said that they would be killed? *eyes Skiltre*
(Meanwhile at the castle)
Anya:Welcome back dear.How was your mentor?
Wraith: It was fine. I heard Anna's in trouble.
Anya:Yes.A rescue group has already gone to get her.
Wraith: I'll be back soon. *leaves*
Anya:We could really use your help here in case of an invasion.
Wraith: I'm going to find Anna. *kisses Anya* I love you.
Anya:I love you too.But still its not safe to go there alone.
Wraith: I'll be fine.
Anya:I know.I just don't want to lose you.
Wraith: I'll be fine. I promise.
Anya:Just be careful and take your time.
Wraith: Okay. *kisses Anya* I'll be back. *teleports to the demon's castle*
(With the travelers)
Kalis:Where are we now?
Krinkinko: (To kalis)Ummmm miss do you know the way to a kingdom run by someone named Anna?
Memphis:Who are you?
Krinkinko:I'm Krinkinko Cricket hedgehog.
Droget:I'm Droget the frog.
Fa-La-Stu:I'm princesss Falalala-Stu Ruth Echidna but just call me Fa-La-Stu.
Kalis:Nice to meet you.
Memphis:Why are you heading to Anna's kingdom?
Krinkinko:We're here to protect it! It's our mission we're G.U.N. agents!
Fa-La-Stu:GREAT! No ones going to help us now that you told them we're from G.U.N.!
Krinkinko:If you mean why them then it's because I vow to protect anyone who needs help...except Eggman.
Kalis:Down this path yo'ull get to the castle.
Droget:We were sort of hoping you would help us since there are a horde of demons.
Krinkinko:Did any of you guys see J I"m his biggest fan!
Memphis:We left him at the castle.
Krinkinko:NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU SICK MONSTERS WHY?????!!!!!!!!!
Droget:Should we go now?
Krinkinko:(Sniff)Yes we should move on and find J!
(Grinds on some trees to go foward)
Memphis:What a weird group.
Kalis:Let's keep going.
Krinkinko: I have a great sense of smell this castle smell like anything.
Droget the frog:Will any bugs be there.
Krinkinko:AAAAACHOOOO! I think I'm allergic to demons. HEY Y=THE CASTLE! Shhhhh it's gaurded.
Droget:I got this........any of you gaurds have bugs?
(The gaurds look at eachother)
(Krinkinko slashes one guard with his leaf blade)
(At Demons Castle)
Selmah: *facing Skiltre* Explain yourself, why does the princess think that her companions will be killed?
Anna:He said you would order him to kill them.
Selmah: *enraged* Is that true Skiltre? Because if it is you know what happened to your brother ...
Skiltre: *shudders* All i said was that if you ordered me to kill the princess's companions, i would have no choice but to obey you, i swear on your father's spirit that is all i said ...
Selmah: *calms down a bit* Is that true princess?
Selmah: *calms down* Okay then *turns to Skiltre* I want you to take your brothers and yourself over to your quarters and enter the healing chambers ... I will be there after i have spoken with the princess
Skiltre: *Bows then does what he was ordered*
Selmah: *turns to Anna* So is it true, are your friends here in Demon territory?
Anna:(Trys to stop crying)Yes,just three of them.
Wraith: *appears* Make that four.
Selmah: Who are you and what are your purposes for invading my castle?
Wraith: Name's Wraith. I came here to get Anna out of here. Why else would I be here?
Anna:Wraith?Please go back to the castle.
Wraith: What, do you want me to leave you here?
Selmah: You have no choice but to leave her here, I have the princess under an ancient Demon Oath!
Wraith: *pulls out sword* Why is that?
Anna:(Stands between them)I promise to teach him something.
Selmah: *bones on skull sharpen* And until she does, she cannot leave this land until the promise we made has been kept ...
Anna:Please don't do this you two.
Wraith: *growls* What promise?
Anna:I promise to teach him a healing trick.
Wraith: Are you honestly going to lie to me, princess?
Anna:I'm not lying.I'm just trying to make peace here.
Wraith: "Make peace"? How are you supposed to make peace if you got freaking kidnapped by demons?
Anna:I don't know,but killing each other won't help either.
Wraith: At a time like this, maybe it will.
Selmah: i kidnapped the princess because no Demon is allowed on the princess's land unless he has been invited! So i made Robots to take the princess as my way of inviting her to my land! If that's okay with you! *growls*
Anna:Stop it both of you.
Wraith: You must be silenced. *slashes at Selmah*
Selmah: *disappears* You cannot defeat me, and to make sure what you are doing is a bad idea, If you kill me, the promise will not be kept, and that means the princess will die alongside me. *reappears right infront of Wraith* Is that what you want boy?
Wraith: What do you mean, "the princess will die alongside me"?
Selmah: It is all apart of the oath, if it is broken, all people that took part in the oath will die. That is always what a King does if a promise has to be kept.
Wraith: I'm not here to kill you. I'm here to kick your butt and get Anna out of here.
Selmah: Ah but the princess promised not to leave my land until she had taught me her technique, and i had taught her mine.
Wraith: Either way I'm still gonna kick your butt.
Anna:(Holds the hand with the mark)So if my friends took me,I would have died?
Selmah: *not taking his eye off wraith* Yes you would have princess, and so would have i. The oath is one of many sacred promise keepers that my ancestors made. But as for you "Wraith", If you wish to fight me, then we will have to fight elsewhere...
Wraith: *grins* Fine.
Selmah: Sorry Princess, but not even you can stop this fight *Teleports Himself and Wraith to the underground battle field* This better suited than my throne room?
Wraith: Yeah, it's fine.
Selmah: Well then *enters battle ready stance* Whenever you are ready boy ...
Wraith: *gets in battle stance* I'm more then ready.
Selmah: Then stop stalling and make the first move!
Wraith: You make the first move.
Selmah: Please, this would be over to soon if i attacked first *stands normally* I am curious as why you challenge the king of demons, that is why i request you make the first move ... if not, i'll just leave you to my lead trooper, i don't have much time to waste with you ...
Wraith: *yawns* Just make the first freaking move.
Selmah: Fine *teleports away then skiltre appears*
Skiltre: Hunh? Who exactly are you?
Wraith: Name's Wraith.
Skiltre: Aah ... i get it now ... *enters battle stance* the king doesn't seem bothered with you so he sent me to do his work ... by the way ... my name is Skiltre, i am King Selmah's lead trooper and commander of all demon forces in this land.
Wraith: Nice knowing you. *slashes at Skiltre*
Skiltre: *jumps back and then runs in a flash behind Wraith and kicks him in the back of the neck, sending him across the room*
Wraith: *hits the wall* Ow.
Skiltre: *stands in silence in his battle ready stance*
Wraith: *gets up* You're turn.
Skiltre: *still in his stance* When i fight i anticipate the opponents moves, so how can i make a move if you do nothing?
Wraith: Goes without saying you're a nutcase.
Skiltre: *chuckles in his stance* If you are trying to get me angry, it is a waste of time, i have no emotion except fear, happiness, and sadness ... so when do you plan on losing? When you die of age or when you die from fighting me?
Wraith: I won't be dying anytime soon. *teleports behind Skiltre and slashes at him*
Skiltre: *disappears when wraith teleports, and then reappears a few feet infront of him, charging up a blast*
(Back with Anna)
Anna:I can't let anything happen to Wraith.So I'll go look for him.(Leaves the room)
(A mysterious figure appears)
Anna:Who are you?
???:All will be told later,princess.
Anna:Are you one of Selmah's demons?
???:No,I'm my own demon.I see things that none would dare see.
Anna:What do you mean?
???:Do you know that story Selmah told you?
Anna:What about it?
???:(Chuckles)That your ancester and his had feelings for one another,then one day they are at each others throuts?
Anna:They were in love?
???:(Smirks)Yes they were,but they attacked each other one day on their secret meetings.Which started the war.
Anna:Why are you telling me this?
???:Sometimes history has a way to repeat itself,but in different ways.Anyway,you should go to your friend before he loses.
Anna:Right.(Runs past him)
???:(Chuckles and disappears)
(Enters the battle field)
Skiltre: *blasts Wraith with a blast that reaches across the entire field*
(Was about to run in to stop them when Selmah stopped her)
Selmah: Princess! What are you doing here?
Anna:I'm here to stop this fight.
Skiltre: *catches a glimpse of anna* Princess? I-i am deeply so-
Selmah: *Eyes Skiltre and teleports him away* Princess, your friend invaded my land illegally ....
Anna:But he has someone waiting for him back at my kingdom.
Skiltre: I am sorry princess, but if one of my demon's were to invade YOUR land without permission from one person from your land, he would have had to pay his life regardless who is waiting for him *turns around*
Wraith: *reappears* Too bad there isn't a law that anyone that isn't a demon can come to their land.
Anna:But taking their life is not the answer.
Selmah: I can only obey the laws that are betwen our land, no demon or beast can go to the princess's land, and no being of flesh from her land is able to come to my land, regardless if they are a demon or not ... But, as a gift of gratitude towards you, you may stay in my kingdom, but i shall have my spies keep a very close eye on you ... you deem that fair enough?
Wraith: When I'm done with you... I'm gonna condemn this place forever.
???: (Comes out of the ground wrapped within a Vine ball, then the Vine ball shatters) Sorry to scare you, my name is Lyra the Fox. I can't remenber if I revealed my name back in the castle, but if I did I am very sorry I scared you.
Selmah: "as long as the moon rises full, there is but only one demon fit to rule this land", that is what my father told me, and everyday the moon rises full on this land, and i suggest you accept what i offered, otherwise i will just banish you from my land ... i mean after all, a knight that won't accept a fair offer is a knight without no honour at all ... and as for you little fox, i suggest you leave before you are killed under the law of this land
Anna:Please Wraith,no more fighting.(See Lyra)Hello.
Lyra: To Selmah: And why would I be killed?
Selmah: You have invaded my land without permission little fox, unless you are here with the knight, then you can accept the offer that i have offered him ...
Anna:Don't kill her for being here.
Lyra: The only reason I came was because I was searching for some people, and that was the reason I might've scared you, I don't want to go into details but I mistook you for someone else.
Wraith: Why did you even bring Anna here?
Anna:@Lyra:Sorrry.@Wraith:To make peace between our lands.
Lyra: That's okay, most people don't know how desperate I am.
Selmah: ONE AT A TIME! PLEASE! *silence* i shall speak to the knight first, then the little fox, then the princess ... *turns to wraith* I asked the princess over to end the rivalry between our lands and to make new laws for each of our lands regarding the other. *turns to Lyra* Why exactly were you looking for some people? and foir what reason do you come popping out of the ground rather than entering through the gates? *turns to anna* I won't kill the little fox for being here, but if she does come across any shaky grounds in the law i have every right to excercise my political powers.
Anna:Thanks for not hurting my friends.
Wraith: Meh. You're evil. So, first, I'll kill you myself. Then, I'll grab a Pepsi and drink it to your death.
Anna:Wraith!Please just go back to Anya!
Selmah: You aren't a very honourble knight are you? If you want to fight who kidnapped your princess *points to skiltre* my head trooper was the one who lead the group
Skiltre: *steps forward* that is right, if you have any quarrel it is with me, not my king.
Wraith: Okay. I'll kill both of you.
Anna:(Pulls out Solar Flare)Listen to me!
Wraith: *looks at Anna* What?
Anna:(Tears up a bit,still holding Solar Flare)Please Wraith,just go home.
Wraith: I'll take my chances.
Anna:You think Anya will agree with you?
Wraith: Don't bring Anya into this.
Anna:I'm sorry,but thinking about how she feels if she knew she lost you would hurt her deeply.
Wraith: I'll be fine.
Anna:But she won't.She's already lost her parents.
Wraith: I know.
Anna:So why would you make her worry?
Wraith: Just trying to keep you safe.
Anna:I'm fine.Look at me.Do I look hurt?
Wraith: No, but you just got kidnapped by demons.
Anna:I know but ask the demons I met here.They gave me food and clothes.At least I'm not in rags and given stale food.
Wraith: I'm done listening to reason. *pulls out sword*
Wraith: *charges towards Selmah*
Selmah: *raises a wall of bones around Wraith and steps forward* *now face to face with wraith* What kind of knight disobeys their own princess? you disgust me, and if it weren't for what i am trying to do, i would have had you and your precious land destroyed by now.
Selmah: *bones encasing wraith disappears* Listen to your princess!
Wraith: Why should I listen to a demon?
Anna:Please,Sir Wraith,just go home and help Anya and tell everyone I'm alright.
Wraith: You're not alright! YOU ARE BEING HELD HOSTAGE BY DEMONS!!!!
Anna:Selenia knows I can handle things myself.
Wraith: Try to get out of this place, then.
Anna:You know I can't do that.I made the deal and I'll handle things my own way.
Wraith: I'll be back. *teleports to the castle*
Selmah: Why on earth didn't he obey you without question? If it was any of my soldiers they would've been in the dungeon by now ...
(Back at the castle)
Anya:Oh,dear.I wish you wouldn't do this.I warn you the dangers of that land.
Krinkinko:Don't worry we're here to save you princess!
Anya:Huh?(Turns around to see 3 people)Who are you guys?
Droget: Don't worry we're here to save you.
Fa-La-Stu: Unless.. (She raises her left eyebrow)..Your not the princess.
Wraith: *appears and whacks Krinkinko and Droget upside their heads with a chair*
Anya:Wraith!(Hugs him)Your back.
Wraith: *hugs Anya* Not for long, though.
Wraith: If you ask me, Anna's gone nuts.
Anya:How can you say that about our princess?
Wraith: Go visit her yourself.
Droget: (Woozy) we'll leave now. (Leaves)
Krinkinko: (Wakes up) So your not a princess?
Anya:You know I can't dear and no I'm not her.
(At Demon's Castle)
Anna:I'm sorry for him,he's known that way in my kingdom.But he's has a good heart.
Selmah: *sitting down in a chair* I know that princess, but i am bound by the laws in my kingdom as he is as soon as he steps in here.
Anna:Um,excuse,Semah.I have a question,if that's okay?
Selmah: *remains eye contact with Anna* yes Princess?
Anna:Why did our ancesters fight?Haven't they been friends before?
Selmah: *bows his head* *sigh* true, they where related and had a wonderful time together, but that is why i am in the library, and have been for the past three years, i have been learning what i can do to break the feud and how the feud began. All i know is that it was a very large family dispute ... If you want *stands up* i could take you to the library now and you could help me.
Anna:If it's not a bother.
Selmah: *rubs back of his head* the only bother is that i hadn't had the time to tidy up my notes that i have made, if you want, i could get Bneda to walk you there while i clean up.
Anna:I can help you clean it up.
Selmah: I'd rather not, i have quite a few amount of personal family notes lying around.
Anna:Okay then, I'll take a walk till your ready.
Selmah: Sure, as soon as i leave Bneda will be here shortly, see you later princess *teleports*
Bneda: *appears in a dark flash* Hmm? *sees Anna and bows* where to princess?
Anna:Um.I would like to check on Skiltre,please?
Bneda: *raises his head* sorry princes but skiltre and rencia are being upgraded with the latest software i could devise, i already have it uploaded ... so where to princess?
Anna:Umm.How about the courtyard?
Bneda: Of course princess, but before i do, may i ask why?
Anna: I'm not sure.I guess I need some freash air after all the chaos.
Bneda: *nods* of course, it has been quite an eventful day today hasn't it? *takes anna to the courtyard, on which Bneda sits on the ground with his legs crossed*
Anna:(Sits on the ground,grabs a rock and starts drawing)
Bneda: so tell me princess *looks up at the sky* what do you think of this place?
Anna:Hm?Well,it's almost like my home,just alittle lonely and yet your people are living just like mine,they have family and friends to give them hope and confidence.
Bneda: i see ... and of the king?
Anna: Well he acts tough,but deep down he's a good person,but somehow,I sense a trace of sadness like he lost someone important to him like I did long ago.Did he lose someone,Bneda?
Bneda: i am sorry, i am but an android the kings father found along with rencia and skiltre, even after all these years, none of us knows what really troubles the king.
Anna:I see.Is it okay I tell you something I never told others?
Bneda: If you turst me, that is nothing but your choice, i have never been the one to force information out of people unless forced to myself
Anna:Well,it may be hard to take in,but,I lost my life two years ago.You ever heard of that happened?
Bneda: only once when it happened to myself, but it is a different case as i am not living ... how did you come back alive? if you don't mind answering.
Anna:(Taks a deep breatch)My cousin Selenia made a deal with Eggman to bring me back to life,but she couldn't see me for two years,to which he made her forget after she moved me to a safe place.
Bneda: i see ... this selenia, she is very close to you isn't she?
Anna:(Smiles)Yeah,she is.When my mother and brother died,she came and took me in.She raised me like her own child,and I thought of her like my mother.I was her whole world,and she was mine,it hurt her to lose me and I guess it would hurt me too if I losted her as well.
Bneda: ... i see ... *gets up* well, i should show you to the library now, the king already informed me of why he wishes me to send you there.
Anna:(Stands up)Alright.Hey if you could,would you check on Selenia and tell me how she is?
Bneda: *bows slightly* i will inform you of any news that i hear of your kingdom *walks the princess to the start of a long hallway* i must stop here, only royalty can enter the rest of this wy, the library is within the double doors at the end on the left *bows* farewell princess *teleports*
Anna:Thank you.(I hope your alright Selenia.)(Goes down the left halls and reach the doors and knocks)Selmah?It's me.
Selmah: *yells* come in princess! i'm just at the top of the shelves getting the final book we should look at!
Anna:(Enters and looks around)Wow,this is a big libery.
(Meanwhile at Anna's kingdom)
Anya:Please be safe Anna.(Sees Bneda)
Bneda: hello there, do you mind to show me as to who is in charge around here?
Anya:I'm in charge till everythings in order.Why are you back here demon,and what did you do to Anna?If you hurt her,you'll regret it.
Bneda: I am here in regards to the princess, she wishes to know what has changed here while she has been gone
Anya:I'm afraid to tell you this,for she would be hurt greatly.
Bneda: i am sorry, i am only but an android, ordered to cater to what the princess asks of me. If you wish to tell me, that is only of your choice, but i will tell you exactly what she said *a stereo speaker opens up in Bneda's chest with anna's voice saying* "Hey if you could,would you check on Selenia and tell me how she is?" *speakers close up*
Anya:That's what will hurt her.I'll show you where her Highness is.And we need to be careful.Some of the guards are still upset.Follow me.
Bneda: i understand *cloaks himself so that he looks like a male version of anya* how is this?
Anya:Pretty good.Let's go.
(They travel to the bottom of the castle,pass a reached a waterway)
Anya:No one knows about this secret.(Moves a barrel and a passage opens)
Bneda: i will erase my memory of this entrance when i leave ...
(They entered through the passage which show alot of crystal and one big one in the middle)
Bneda: interesting ... in return for not deleting the entrance to here in my mind, i would like to say we have an area just like this under the kings castle, except all the crystals are a shade of purple splotted with black ...
Anya:Neat.I growed these crytals with my Crytalkinsis.(Points to the big crystal)That one is very impotant.
Bneda: i see ... *looks around* but where is this selenia that the princess speaks of?
Anya:Look closer at it.
Bneda; *looks closer into the crystal and sees the body of a female being inside of it* interesting ...
Anya:That's her highness.Those two demons from before gave her great shock,and which in turn made her condition worse,leaving her dead.So I put her in crystal till Anna found the way without Eggman's help to save her if anything happens.
Wraith: *appears* I'M BAAACK!!!!
Bneda: *quickly the male version of anya cloak covers him*
Anya:Hello dear.Please,the queen wishes not to be bothered.
Wraith: Something happen while I was gone?
Anya:No,not really,but this place is fragile.And i don't want anything broken here.
Wraith: ...... I can tell someone other than us is here.
Bneda: sorry, i forgot to introduce myself, i am anya's twin brother ... ayan ...
Wraith: I can tell you're lying... Bneda.
Bneda: *cloak goes down* i see, you are skilled, but i am here for the sake of the princess, not for what you think i am doing
Wraith: You expect me to believe you... why?
Bneda: *opens arms* you see that i am unarmed AND nothing is destroyed
Anya:It's time to talk.
Wraith: About what?
Anya:Listen to this demon.He's friends with Anna,and the royal rule is a friend to the royal family should be treated as a friend.
Bneda: if you don't beleive me *stereo opens up in his chest* then beleive the princess when she told me "Hey if you could,would you check on Selenia and tell me how she is?"
Anya:And that's why he's here.
Wraith: ......... Fine. *leaves*
Bneda: i apologise
Anya:That's alright.Well you saw the queen's condiction.And I fear Anna will surely be heart broken.
Bneda: if you want, i will lie to the princess, i was told to get the info, not actually come here
Anya:It's best that way.this kingdom already is full of sorrow and making Anna would be worse.Also,I have a question for you.
Bneda: if the question is if the princess is safe, don't worry, she is, and me and my two brothers are to see that she is protected
Anya:I know she is.She's not completely helpless.But have you see a figure in a black robe?
Bneda: i can't say, the king says that he sees something lurking, but he can't make it out, if you don't mind me asking, why?
Anya:Well lately something has been watching Anna in the shadows.(Pulls out a photo)someone was able to get this
(Shows a shadowly figure)
Bneda: i see, is there any other informtion known of this figure?
Anya:No,but I looked at her ancester dariy and it talks about the same figure.So please,watch out for Anna.
Bneda: *bows slightly* i shall do my best anya, farewell *teleports*
(Meanwhile back at the demon castle)
Anna:(comes to a old book)Selmah,is this your ancester journal?
Selmah: *looks down* yes, yes it is, i keep it out incase i find anything related to the situation at hand
Anna:(Opens its and sees a shadow)This is like the shadow that follows me.
Selmah: *tries not to act surprised* well, he has been spotted on the brim of this land for sometime now
Anna:Did you ever get a good look at him?It says here that this shadow appeared right before the battle started.
Selmah: not that i know of, i leave all the fighting to the demons i have assigned to bneda, rencia and skiltre, i only fight if the leader or a great weapon is involved
Anna:I see.I hope history doesn't respect itself.
Selmah: i don't think it will *thinks* i hope it won't
Wraith: *walking to Selmah's castle*
Memphis:What are you doing here?
Wraith: Going to save Anna. Don't try to stop me. *continues walking*
Kalis:So are we,
Memphis:(Crosses arms)Why else would we be here.
(The others behind them)
Wraith: Let's go, then.
(They go with Wraith)
Wraith: Okay, Plan A: Rescue Anna and escape as quick as possible.
Memphis:Use your head for once brother.You forgot her deal.
Kalis:We already lost Selenia.We can't lose Anna too.
Wraith: Forget about the deal, Memph. I can't get through the fact we lost Selenia. I can't afford to lose Anna.
Kalis:Hello,you said if she leaves the land she dies.We'll lose her once she steps out.
Memphis:Kalis said we need to get her the right herbs to make her medicine,so the deal will end.
Kalis:I got water from the lake.
Memphis:I got some herbs that might help.We just need someone to send them to her and return back.Brother,can you teleport these to her without going there?
Wraith: I'll try.
(They gave him the lake water and herbs)
Wraith: Alright... here it goes... *teleports to the castle*
Kalis:Just focous of putting them in a place Anna would need them.
(At Demon Castle)
Anna:(Yawns)Is it that late?
Selmah: *keeps looking through books* considering it is nearly midnight, yes, yes it is late
Anna:I better get some sleep and try to work on my rare medicine.I feel like I'm close to making it work.
Selmah: interesting *flips a page* i'm just finding an easier way to use the aging technique, that way we can both learn it at the same time
Anna:Great.Once I done the medicine I'll join you in learning it.We sleep dream Selmah.(Leaves)
Selmah: Goodnight princess *waits till the princess leaves and a secret book comes out of the ceiling* now i can ACTUALLY do some research *reads the dark powered book*
Anna:(Enters her room)Bneda,I know your there.
Bneda: Of course princess, i bring news of what you asked me of
Anna:How is she?
Bneda: she is fine, the lady that showed me her, Anya, says that she misses you very much
Anna:I miss her too.Thank you for telling me.I'm going to sleep now.(Gets in bed and goes to sleep)
Wraith: *appears silently*
Wraith: *goes over to Anna and whispers* Anna...
Wraith: *shakes Anna a bit* Anna, wake up...
Anna:(Opens one eye and whispers)Wraith,what's up?(Sees the herbs and water)Are those for me?
Wraith: Yeah. *hands the herbs and water to Anna*
Anna:Thanks Wraith.Also,could you do something for me.I feel something's going to happen soon.
Wraith: What is it?
Anna:A evil shadow wishes for both sides to fight.You and the others mustn't let that happen,so please,the 1st sign you see it,stop whatever it's plaing before its too late.
(Anna tells Wraith about the upcoming danger,then Wraith leaves with the knowledge)
???: *knock knock knock* princess? are you in there?
Anna:Skiltre?Yes I'm here.Come in.
Skiltre: *opens the door and appears different than he was before, seeming more android than demon* how did you know it was me princess?
Anna:(Smiles)Your voice.What's wrong?
Skiltre: *smiles* glad you noticed, rencia and i got ourselves upgraded whilst bneda was with you, as we speak, bneda is being upgraded himself ... i trust you and the king found what you were looking for in the library?
Anna:(Sigh)All we found was that a shadow was near the start of the war years ago.
Skiltre: *thinks* Damn, if they already found that he was there, then he cannot be far *talks* would you like me to escort you to the breakfast table princess?
Skiltre: *leads anna a different room to the breakfast room, with only two tables with four seats* you will be eating at this table with the king, my brothers and i will eat at this table *sits at the table on the left*
Anna:Alright.(Sits down at the table on the right)
(selmah walks in with an upgraded bneda and rencia following, Bneda and rencia bow to the princess, then sit at their table, and selmah sits across from the table where anna is siting)
Selmah: good morning princess, i trust you slept well?
Anna:Yes I had.Thank you.Pardon my asking,but why are we in this room?
Selmah: *serious* an incident occurred in the old dining room last night, reports say it was a fast green and red blur running through the room in search of something, my general says he is most likely to return ...
Anna:Really?Well,at least no one was hurt.
Selmah: yes, but quite a lot of the rooms cupboards were destroyed, interesting as to what it was looking for ...
Anna:Any idea what it was?
Selmah: i have a fair idea, but it should be impossible, i fought him quite a while back
Rencia, Bneda, Skiltre: *bow their heads and keep silent*
Anna:Who and what?
Selmah: his name ... Flab the Demonhog, an ex-demon and traitor of this land and a great threat as well ... he tried to overthrow me and change my ways, but in the end he payed the ultimate price
Skiltre: *keeps silent*
Rencia, Bneda: *finish their meal and leave in a hurry*
Anna:But I know him,he helped me when me and my friends was in trouble.I haven;t seen him since.
Skiltre: *quickly finishes his meal and leaves*
Selmah: WHAT!? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? I SAW HIM DISAPPATE IN MY OWN HANDS!
Anna:I have no clue.But I meet him 3 times.One when I in a fight with Moonwatch,2 at a cave and 3 I was badly hurt.That was before I came as a princess.
Selmah: *clutches his forehead and makes his way towards the door* i must leave to my quarters, this news is very startling *leaves*
Skiltre: *walks in* are you alright princess?
Anna:Yes i'm fine.Tell me,is Flab this friend who left him?
Skiltre: we must find a more secret place to talk *teleports himself and the princess to the three androids HQ* there, find a seat, and i will explain everything.
Anna:(Finds a seat and sits)I'm listening.
Skiltre: *brings up an old picture of skiltre holding flab on one arm with selmah on the other* to tell you the truth princess, Selmah wasm't meant to be king, selmah and flab were close brothers, but flab was born first ...
Anna:They look so happy.What happened?
Skiltre: *shows another slide of the two brothers at a conference of some sort* there was a big debate on which child should be king, every person within the army voted for selmah to become king, but the public all chose flab and he was king for a time, but they came to an agreement, if flab wishes to withdraw from the position of being king, selmha would become king ... words were said between the two and flab wanted to be king ... however, the selmah was outraged and challenged flab to a kings duel ...
Skiltre: Flab declined and said there were more peaceful ways of handling the situation, but selmah just kept getting angrier and angrier ... eventually they fought ... and flab won ... but when flab back was turned, selmah's hands glowed dark and he grabbed flab, making flab disappate as the king said ... but flab wasn't killed, just teleported slowly, but we made selmah think that flab was dead to stop him from getting furious ...
Anna:I see.I wonder why Flab is here?
Flab: *walks into the HQ* because i am here to rightfully claim my place on the throne
Skiltre: *bows on one knee* king fla-
Flab: i am not your king at the moment dear friend, please, raise yourself ... and it has been a while hasn't it anna, or should i say, princess anna?
Anna:It has my friend.I haven't seen you since that incident a while back.(Smiles)
Flab: yes it has, before we start with the reminising tell me ... my brother promised you some sort of aging technique in return for a special technique?
Anna:Yes,as a why to make peace between our kingdoms.
Flab: *laughs a little* a bunch of *following word cannot be displayed* if you ask me ... he's just doing it so he can live forever ...
Anna:What do you mean?
Flab: Skiltre, could you leave the princess and i alone so that i could explain what is going on ... don't worry, you and your brothers will know soon
Skiltre: I understand *walks past and places a hand on flab's shoulder* good to see you again old friend *walks out of the room*
Flab: Selmah's main goal in life is to control all living beings on mobius ... but to do that it would take a lifetime ... so in order to accomplish what he needs he is finding ways to stay alive forever ... tell me, he showed you how the "aging" technique works right?
Anna:Yeah,he did and he even found a way for us both to do it.
Flab: it is a lie, it is nothing but an illusion technique,he uses it to appear in his llate twenties, but he is actually 14 years of age.
Anna:I know.He 1st showed me hs real age and told me the history of our families.
Flab: that too is a lie ... it is true that our ancestors were great friends ... but it is a lie as to how our two kingdoms became great "enemies" ...
Anna:You mean the shadow?
Flab: yes, it states in my ancestors book that he was my ancestor's brother, and he dispised everything and wants only for demon's to control mobius, sending all other species to be slaves or even worse ... to be fed on.
Anna:(Hugs herslf)And he still out there.
Flab: sadly he is ... and he is going to assassinate selmah, that is why i am here, you have already found my blurring crash into the dining room right?
(They soon hear a voice)
???:Are you two done talking?
Flab: *spins around, jumping infront of Anna with his large guitar axe in hand* who dares approach the princess without warning?
(They sees a figure in a black robe)
???:My name is Kraid the Shadowed One.(Takes the robe to show a black wolf with red eyes)Long time hasn't it,child of the sun?
Flab: Wait a second, your a shadowed one? *stance turns more ready* how did you find this place and how do you know anna?
Kraid:(Chuckles)I have ways to get to places.And as to how I know her.I'm the one who killed her mother and brother those years ago,back when she was a helpless child.
Anna:(Slight fear in her eyes)
Flab: *pulls out the earth living stone and places it in his guitar axe* you shall not come a step closer! my top priority at the moment is to protect the leaders of their respective lands!
Wraith: *appears behind Kraid silently*
Kraid:(Chuckles)You ready think you can stop me.And I know your there Sir Wraith.
Wraith: You know my name... how?
Flab: *takes a more powerful stance, now placing the fire living stone in his guitar axe*
Kraid:(Smirks)I know everyone who hangs around the Child of the Sun.Even you.
Anna:He took my family away.
Flab: *places the water and thunder living stone in the guitar axe as well* i know he did, i mean after all, he killed mine and selmah's father as well, am i right?
Wraith: Pssh... psychotic morons are all the same: they kill someone's family member just because they hate them.
Kraid:Ah,yes,that's where I got this charming robe.You can have it back now.(Throws it to Flab and talks to Wraith)My hatered runs deeper for them more then you know.
Wraith: Want a bet? I can just go ahead and kill you right now.
Anna:What did our families do to you?
Wraith: NOTHING!!!!! *looks at Anna and clears throat* Sorry.
Flab: enough of this! *slams the bottom of the guitar axe on the ground, making an earth tube appear around kraid, keeping him apart from wraith and everyone* what are you here for?
Kraid:What do you think.I'm here to kill both Selmah and Anna.
