I arrived back at Morena’s lair when she was also coming.
” Where are you coming from? ” I asked
” You’re not my mother, you’re my younger sister and I think I should be the one asking you that” she retorted.
” Simple question, give a simple answer, I see no big deal in what I said” I replied.
” Well if you really want to know, I went to inform my son about the new update, we need the warriors to be ready when its time ”
” I thought you were supposed to be acting old lady, what are you doing here? ”
” Let’s just say I’ve gotten the crystal ” I answered
” Really!! Where is it? ”
I smirked and stretched my hands, immediately a shining crystal appeared in my palms ..
“Hhhah” She exclaimed and grabbed the crystal from me.
” How did you get it? ” “Wait, I thought the crystal will only shine when it’s in Drex hand? ”
I didn’t answer I just kept smirking.
” Malicia? “. ” Answer me”
” The reason its shining in your hands is because it’s fake” I finally answered.
” What is it going to do for us, why will you bring a fake crystal, how is it going to free Lucas? ”
She bombarded me with questions.
” One question at a time sister ”
” Just answer me”
” Okay okay, we are not going to be using the fake crystal to free Lucas, we’re only going to use it as a cover to get the real crystal ”
“‘ How” she asked
I rolled my eyes, I can’t believe Morena has become so stupid and dull.
“I’m going to exchange the fake one with the real one”
“How are you going to get the real one? ”
“I won’t be the one to get someone else will”
” Let’s just we have an insider working for us”
” You mean someone among them? ”
” What else could an insider mean” I snapped
” You don’t have to snap at me” she bellowed
” When you’re acting like a ninny why won’t I snap” I retorted.
“I dont have time to argue with you, when are we getting the crystal? ”
” Tonight ”
” Malicia you do know that the real crystal can only be with us for a few minutes before it returns to its owner right? ”
” Yes, within those few minutes we’ll free Lucas ”
” Ohh I can’t wait for my love to be free” squealed and twirl herself around.
I felt like slapping her how can she call Lucas her love, Lucas is mine and only mine. Thousands of years ago she stole him from me, Lucas never loved her, he loved only me, but we kept our affair a secret, Morena seduced him and snatched him away from me, then I couldn’t do anything. Lucas later came begging, he said he didn’t love her that she forced him into their relationship. I forgave him and we continued our relationship, the day I found out I have a child that was the day he was destroyed.
Now that he’s coming back, I’ll make sure I have him all to myself.and I’ll bring our son who has chosen not to listen to me, I’ll bring him to his senses, then I’ll think about what to do with my sister……..
The portal reopened and we were back home.
” How did it go? ” Pheonix asked
” What’s the next step? ” my father added
” She said we are to go to the cave of Ziana” I replied
” That’s what I expected” my father said.
” And we have to combine our powers” Nirvia added
” Yes yes I almost forgot about that ”
“You should do that now, first thing tomorrow morning you start your journey ” my father said.
” Father where is the crystal? ” I asked
” It’s hidden safely in my room ” he replied and almost immediately they flooded out of the room leaving only me and Nirvia.
” Let’s start our mating now, it might take all night ” she said after a long while of silence
” Marking not mating ” I corrected
” I don’t want the marking I want us to mate” she replied
“Why” I stupidly asked
” Didn’t you hear what Grandma Eliza said its going to be painful and I don’t want any pain”
I looked at her for any sign that she was joking but her face was stoic.
” Look Nirvia I can’t.. ” I started to say but she cut me off
” Is it because I’m dressed like this, okay don’t worry ” she said and before I could blink twice her warrior clothes was transformed into a short white dress.
What!! She is really serious, I was speechless all I could do was stare at her. To be honest she was really beautiful but I couldn’t think about doing that,, maybe its because I’ve never done something like that, I don’t even no where to start.
“Have you kissed a girl before? ” she asked advancing towards me and moved backwards.
“N… no ” I starmmered
” Why? ”
” Where was I supposed to get a girl to kiss” I drawled
” Is Mandy not a girl? ” she asked
Goddess save me, what kind of a lady is this.
” Mandy is just my friend ”
“Okay don’t worry I’ve kissed a guy before, I’ve got enough experience for both of us”
What 😦, are humans this bold, she got closer to me and held my face.
Goddess.. Oh great goddess save your loyal servant. I can’t believe I’m scared of a woman, is she going to rape me or what.
She leaned closer to me and I closed my eyes, I was expecting her to kiss me or something but she didn’t. Seconds later she I heard her laughing. When I opened my eyes she was sitting on the floor laughing seriously.
” Drex, I’m supposed to be doing what you just did, I’m the girl you’re that man remember? ” she said in between hysterics.
I felt embarrassed, oh goddess why did you give me such a woman. I can’t believe I just messed up.
” Let’s just get on with the marking ” I said lowly.
” Okay” she said walking to stand in front of me.
I’m sure she’s happy about what she did.
” Where do you want me to do it” I asked
She turned around and moved her hair to one side, exposing her smooth skin.
” Here ” she whispered touching a spot behind her neck.
I ran my my fingers around the spot, her skin felt so soft. I transformed only my fingers into and dug into her skin.
She winced in pain as my claw pierced through her skin and started bleeding, I slightly bent my head and licked the blood.
I thought Vampires were the only creatures that drink blood but I felt like drowning myself in her intoxicating blood. I raised my head when I couldn’t taste the blood, the spot had healed and a symbol of fire appeared on the spot.
” Your Grandma said a drop of my blood but you just drank a ton of it” she said walking to the bed.
I suddenly felt heavy and weak, I walked over to the bed and laid next to her, moments later a was whirling away to dreamland…………..
I appeared at the place I and my new partner agreed to meet and he was already there with the crystal.
" Here " he said giving me the crystal.
" Here this is the fake one " I said and gave him the fake crystal.
" You better keep your end of the deal" he said threatening manner.
" Of course my boy I definitely will" I said and disappeared.
Ralph made a terrible mistake by saying where the crystal was when Drex asked him.. I love Nirvia too much to let her go even if it means freeing the horrible beast. Once the beast has been freed I will kill Drex and have Nirvia all to myself………
I’ll give you guys a hint…
Malicia has formed an alliance with one person between Bryan and Evan.
Who among them is it?
Remember Bryan is Aurora’s son and Evan ‘s parents are dead…
Let me leave you to solve the puzzle, if you’ve been following from the beginning you’ll know….

I arrived at the lair a few seconds later, Morena had prepared all we needed, the spell book was already opened.
” Did you get it? ” she asked
” Of course, do you think I’m like you? ” I replied
” Look Malicia, there’s no time to argue, if my love is free then maybe we can argue” she snapped.
Hhmmp Love my foot.
” Have you found the spell? ” I asked
“Alright, let’s get this done and over with ” I said walking to where the book was, she joined me by my side and we both brought out our wands.
I made the crystal hang in the air and we both read out the spell.
” As you go as you come, as you come as you go, break free the life in the space between life and death ” we said waving our wands in the air.
Light spurred out of the wands into the crystal resulting in a brighter light that engulfed the whole lair.
Moments later the whole lair was shaking like an earthquake was about to occur, everything was falling apart.
A little while later the crystal disappeared and in midst of the light a horrible figure emerged.
Is… Is.. This Lucas?……………..
I jerked awake from my sleep to find Nirvia wrapped around me, but that was not what woke me up.
I felt my body on fire, it was as if a fire has been set inside me, I tried getting up but our legs was tangled up.
” What’s happening? ” I asked myself because the heat was increasing.
As if to answer my question, the door flung open and my father came running in.
” Drex!! ” he shouted waking Nirvia up.
Arora, Pheonix, Bryan and Evan followed suite.
” What’s wrong? ” I asked as I struggled to get up.
“Lucas is back” Pheonix answered
” I know isn’t that why you’re all here? ”
” No Drex, he means that Lucas has left Limbo, he is back in the kingdom, he is free” my father half yelled with fear etched in each word.
“What? ” I asked
” I thought only the crystal can free him? ” Nirvia added.
” That’s the point, the crystal freed him” Evan answered.
” How? ”
“Father I thought you said the crystal was hidden in a safe place? ” I asked.
“Yes Drex, I hid it in my room but when I went to check on it I found this” he answered bringing out a crystal that looked exactly like my but it was shining.
” It’s fake” Arora said.
“If this is fake then where is the real one ” Nirvia asked.
And just then a light shone and the crystal appeared falling on the ground.
I quickly walked to where it was and picked it up.
” Where did it come from? ”
” Someone must have stolen it” Bryan said.
“Who would do that? ” I asked
” Maybe someone working for Lucas and his crew” he answered.
” Lucas has people working for him? ” Nirvia asked.
” Well of course someone must be working for him” he answered
“How do you know that? ” I asked
“Well.. Um.. Well.. ss..someone.. Mm… Must.. Be work… Working.. For… Him” he stammered. ” How else would he have gotten the crystal ”
“If someone did steal it that person must be close to us because I shielded this whole area, so anyone going in or out I know ” Pheonix said.
” Who could it be? ” Nirvia said.
“Look… Look guys, we don’t have time to look for who stole it.. Remember that the beast is out of prison ” Evan suddenly spoke out.
“I agree with him” Bryan added.
“We need a plan ” Arora said.
“Correct, Arora” my father said
“Drex, Nirvia you need to be at the cave of Ziana as soon as possible while the rest of us will try to stop Lucas because he most definitely will locate you “.
“And the crystals of harmony must be sealed together before the next seven days else Lucas will become unstoppable ” Arora added.
“Is that not the red moon day? ” I asked
” In this world its the red moon but in the human world its the full moon” Pheonix answered
“And since Lucas is out of Limbo the the barrier between the two worlds will be broken ” Arora added.
“Is that bad? ” Nirvia asked
“Yes and no ” Pheonix answered
“Why? ” I asked
“Its a yes because we will be able to get help and no because Lucas will gain more power”. Arora spoke up.
“Now there’s no time for more questions, you guys need to leave” my father said.
“How are we going to get there? ” I asked.
“That’s the problem ” he answered.
“You’ll have to walk there and I’m afraid its going to take a lot of time, Lucas might have devoured half of the kingdom before you get there ”
“Then what other way can we get there? ” Mandy asked.
“We can help with that” a voice said and we all turned to see…………..
“Aahh finally “I drawled after the light had died down.
I never expected to be free so soon, but I’m very happy that I am.
” Lucas? ” a familiar voice called.
I turned around to see my two puppets at the end of the room or lair rather.
” Malicia… Morena” I called
A second later Morena was hugging me, ohh that was fast.
Malicia just stood in front of us giving me a knowing look, she can’t hug me because our relationship is a secret.
” Welcome back” Morena squeaked when she finally let go of me.
” Thank you for helping get out of that empty trap” I said.
I was still in my beast form and I didn’t feel comfortable, as if Malicia read my mind.
“Morena, why dont you go and get Lucas clothes and food while I try to help him transform back into his real form” Malicia said.
” Oh okay… Um I should ” she said “I’ll be back ” she added and disappeared.
Malicia wordlessly pointed her wand at me and I began to change into my human form.
The moment I was completely back to my real self, she jumped on me and before I knew it her lips were on mine. I was shocked at first but I responded and kissed her back, there’s no way I’m going to miss a chance of using these two.
” Welcome back ” she said as she pulled away.
” I really missed you” she added stroking my cheeks.
” I missed you too” I said sweetly. I’ll try all my best to make sure non of them suspect me.
“Mind helping me with some clothes? ” I asked because I was completely naked.
“Why? ” she asked running her hands up and down my chest.
“Malicia your sister might get here any moment ” I said. I was tempted to take her here but I couldn’t risk it.
“Lucas, is it still going to be like this! ” “we can’t keep our relationship a secret forever you know!”
” Malicia please not now, I just got out of Limbo, please I’m not ready to start with that now. ” I bellowed.
” Okay I’m sorry ” she said and pointed her wand at me immediately I was all dressed up.
“Thanks, once everything is okay I promise to set things right ” I said and planted a kiss on her lips.
“Lucas you need to know something ” she said after a while of silence.
“What is it”
“We have a son ” she blurted out
“A what.!!! “.. ……………
BY: K. R. N
” We should rest now ” I said exasperated.
We’ve been walking for almost a day now, don’t these people get tired. Gosh I’m exhausted.
” I thought we just rested a while ago” Ciara said.
What!! These people do not get tired.
” That was like a day ago” I replied collapsing on a flat rock. The rest of them did the same except for Kane.
” I’ll go check if I get something for us to eat” he said.
” I’ll come with You ” Jane said and followed him.
I have a feeling they are not just going to get food, a while ago I caught them communicating with their eyes.
“I’ll go and see if there’s a stream nearby” Kade said getting up
“I’ll come with you ” Ciara also said and followed him.
And I know their not going to get any water, I saw Kane checking Ciara out and they had been having small talks time to time.
A sly smile formed on my lips as I thought about what they we’re going to do.
“I feel pressed “Elvis said and got up, seconds later he disappeared into the bushes, leaving me with the heartless beauty.
I glanced at her and as usual her face was impassive.
” Do you always look like that? ” I blurted out without thinking.
She stared at me so Iong I started feeling uncomfortable , Gosh this lady is intimidating.
” How do I always look like? ” her voice was still cold.
” You always look serious and ready to fight ” I answered.
” That’s what I was trained for” she said.
“You mean after you gave your heart away? ” I asked but she didn’t reply.
We sat down silently for a while I was beginning to wonder how long it will take the others to finish making out except for Elvis, but how long will it take him to ease himself?.
” Yes” Diana’s cold voice interrupted my thoughts.
“What? ” I asked.
“It was after I gave my heart away ” she answered staring at an empty space.
“Why did you give your heart away? ”
“There was nothing to feel for ” she replied
“How? ” I asked. But she didn’t answer until after a long while.
“My whole family died in front of me” she said
” Ohh ” was the only thing that came out of my mouth.
“They died mysteriously, till this day nobody knows the cause of their death”
” it must have been a painful experience ” I said. I can’t imagine what I’ll do if I lost even on of my parents not to talk of losing them both.
“Yeah, but that was a long time ago” she replied casually.
” That’s why you gave your heart away? ”
” Yep” she answered
“So are you going to remain like this forever? ” I asked.
“What’s the meaning of maybe? ” I asked
But I didn’t get the chance to get an answer as Kane and Jane came stalking back with some fruits followed by Kade and Ciara who were holding a ball of water and Lastly Elvis who came back with more fruits.
We shared the fruits among ourselves and I occasionally caught Diana staring at me. At first I thought maybe she was falling for me but then I remembered she’s emotionless……
What is wrong with me? Ever since I set my eyes on this Rodney guy I’ve started have weird feelings. Like my heart beats faster whenever he looks at me. I don’t even know why I told him about my family’s death.
That was the worst moment of my life, I wanted to kill myself but the priestess stopped me. She gave me the idea of giving out my heart for the crystal, that way I could remember my family’s death without feeling pain and I could help the kingdom by holding the crystal.
Being immortal has been the best for me because I can handle any situation I find myself in but Rod or whatever he call’s himself wants to ruin my lifeless life, I’ll have to stop myself from falling for him else I’ll just be leading myself to complete misery………
We all turned to see the four people I never expected…… my sisters.
“We can help you get there in no time” Lisa said walking into the room.
“How? ” I asked
“We can carry you there” Imelda answered as she also walked in.
“Look kids, this isn’t a child’s play, we’re talking about serious business here” Pheonix said.
“And who said we’re joking “Meg said standing in the doorway.
” And how do you intend to carry them” Arora asked.
None of them answered but what happened next gave the perfect answered.
In a splint second the four of them transformed into tigers and combined together to form the largest tiger I’ve ever seen.
My jaw dropped as I stared at the humongous creature my sisters turned into. Instead of four legs it hand eight legs with large paws. If this did not happen in front of me I would have sworn with my life that this thing is not my sisters.
Everybody looked surprised except for my father who had a smirk plastered on his face.
” Action is better than voice ” Meg’s voice said.
What 😦, did this thing just talk.
” I agree with you sister ” Amaya answered. Each of them could talk from inside the creature, I glanced at my father but he was still smirking.
” So now you see how we intend to carry them ” Imelda said answering Arora’s question.
” Don’t you think its dangerous? ” I asked
” You’re not the only one who was taught how to fight you know ” Lisa answered from somewhere inside the body of the giant tiger.
” My girls have the power to bring down a whole army you know ” I heard my mother’s voice.
We all turned to the direction her voice came from and I almost screamed.
My mother was fully dressed in an armor, like a warrior in a battle ground and she was holding a sword. Okay I think I’m going to faint this moment, how many surprises will I receive in one day?
” I taught them well ” she added as she stepped into the room.
I glanced at my father again and the smirk had grown into a proud smile.
“Ralph, you never told me that your whole family consists of fighters ” Pheonix said.
” Like my daughter said, action is better than the voice ” my father answered
” Indeed it is ” Arora said.
” Now that we’ve got that settled we need a plan” Pheonix said.
” Yes” my father said. ” While Drex and Nirvia go the cave, we need to find a way to slow Lucas down. ”
” I can handle that ” Arora spoke up. ” I know some spells that will stop him from detecting where the crystal is.
” Good, that’s covered, next we need more help like more warriors ”
“I can take care of that” Evan said ” My trainees and other warriors in the human world will be of help, all I need to do is send them a message to get ready”
“And what about warriors in this world? ” a voice said. Again we all turned to see Mandy, Arman her father and Oscar her brother coming out of a portal, they were all dressed in warrior suits. Okay now I’m going to faint.. Mandy is holding a sword, this is serious.
“Arman!! ” my father exclaimed as he hugged his best friend.
“Its been a while Ralph ” Arman said as they unhooked from their hug.
Arman walked forward and shook hands with Pheonix. ” it’s a pleasure to finally meet the king of the great human kingdom ”
” The pleasure is all mine” Pheonix answered.
“So as I was saying” Arman continued ” If you get warriors from the world, I’ll get warriors from this world and I will also send a message to the rest clans. ”
“That would be great ” my father said.
“Its time for you to leave” he said turning to face me and Nirvia.
We wordlessly walked to where the giant tiger was and hopped on it.
“We’ll be behind you ” Mandy and Oscar said at once.
“And me too ” Bryan added.
My mother stepped forward and stretched her hands, round waves of light emerged from her hands and formed a round path.
Almost immediately my sisters (the giant tiger) jumped and entered the path………..
“A what? ” I exclaimed.
“A son” she replied
“What do you mean how, did you forget that we had a relationship? ”
” Yes but why didn’t you tell me you were pregnant? ” I asked
” I discorved I was pregnant the day you were imprisoned ”
“Where is he now? ”
“That’s The problem ” she answered
“He has chosen to follow the path of light ”
“He has joined forces with the Arora and the forces of light ”
“That’s not possible, my son cannot follow light when he is darkness, don’t worry Malicia I’ll make sure I bring him back to his senses” I assured .Hi Oscar on +2348132129841 to be added for more interesting stories.
I never expected such a twist, now it’s going to be hard to dump Malicia, I might not love her but I sure do love my son even though I just found out about him now.
“I’m back” Morena announced as she reappeared with three young men behind her.
“And I brought food ” she added. A smile formed on my lips as I realized what she meant by food.
“Step forward ” she ordered the men a they sluggishly walked to my front.
I touched their heads one after the other and their souls left their body and entered me.
“Aaahh” I groaned as the souls entered me, I felt refreshed and energized. If I continue the like this I might not even need the crystals power.
“Morena where are the warriors? ” I asked.
” They are all waiting for you in the palace ”
“Good, tell them to get ready we are attacking tonight “………

Every step the giant tiger took was like jumping through different worlds. Suddenly we halt and almost fell down.
“What happened? ” I asked.
“We’re here” Meg said.
“What do you mean we’re here? ” I asked
“I don’t see any cave” Nirvia added.
“This is the farthest we can go, you’ll have to use your legs to complete the journey ” Lisa said
“How far is the cave from here? ” I asked climbing down.
“It’s not that far” Imelda answered
“It’s just half a day from here” Amaya added.
“What, half a day and it’s not that far? ” Nirvia asked
“We can’t go further ” Lisa answered.
Nirvia was still on the back of the tiger
“Aren’t you coming down? ” I asked.
” I am ” she answered. She tried hopping down but she missed a step and almost fell, I was fast enough to reach her and I held her by the waist.
For a few seconds I was lost staring at her and I thought.
” Maybe she is right for me because she fit perfectly in my arms”.
I don’t know what came over me but I felt the urge to kiss her. I bent my head and just inches from her lips, I heard someone clear her throat.
Startled I lightly pushed Nirvia aside and turned around. That was when I realized that my sisters were still behind us, but they were now back to their normal form and they were smirking 😏.
“Brother, I thought you were on your way to the cave” Lisa said
“And is this the right place to do what you were about to do? ” Meg asked.
“In front of your sisters? ” Imelda added.
“That’s very bad brother ” Amaya completed teasingly.
I was speechless and I just kept staring at them.
“We should start going now” Nirvia said to me lowly. I glanced at her and she was crimson red.
“Yeah yeah run along now ” Lisa shouted.
Wordlessly we both started walking towards the clear path between the bushes.
“And be careful “Amaya said from behind us.
When I turned to look at them they were gone.
Finally after walking for hours we reached the cave.
“Finally ” I groaned.
“We can’t enter the cave now” Elvis said to Ciara who was at the entrance of the cave.
“Why” she asked
“Because the chosen one is not here yet ” he answered
“If we can’t enter then where are we going to stay before he gets here? ” Jane asked.
“Here” a voice said and the side of the cave opened up. A tall beautiful woman came out of it.
“You’re all welcome ” she said
“You will be staying in here ” she continued and pointed at the side of the cave, immediately four doors appeared.
“Three of these doors lead to a room for only two people ” she said and paused
“This one ” she continued pointing at the last door “Is for one person ”
“You may enter with whoever you wish”
The moment she said that Elvis walked forward to where the door for only one person was.
“I’ll stay here” he announced. I was somewhat disappointed because I wanted that room, I need privacy.
Kane and Jane walked to one of the other doors
“We’ll stay here” Kane said. Wait these people are really serious.
I was not surprised when Ciara and Kade walked to another door.
What bothered me was that I would be left alone with miss emotionless .
“I see you’ve grouped yourselves ” the woman said ” By the way I’m Presley , if you need any just call my name and have a good rest ” she said and disappeared.
They all opened their doors and entered, I sluggishly stalked to the last door and opened it.
“Are you coming? ” I asked Diana
She hesitated for a moment before she marched forward.
“After you ” I said giving her some space so she can enter first.
“Thank You ” she replied and entered.
I looked around one last time before entering, I just hope I’ll be able to keep my hands off this woman till the chosen one gets here……..
“We should rest now” Drex said.We’ve been walking for hours now.
I walked to where a big three was and sat under it, he followed and sat next to me.
I tried to ignore the fact that we were sitting so close, I could feel my heart beat increasing. I can’t say I like him but he sure does affect me.
“Do you think we can defeat Lucas? ” he suddenly asked
“Yes we can ” I answered but I wasn’t sure.
“Give me reasons why we can defeat him ”
“We’re not alone and there’s no way darkness can beat light ” I answered
“I hope so” he whispered mostly to himself.
I turned to look at him but he was looking at me, I suddenly remembered what happened a few hours ago. If his sisters were not there would he have kissed me?
I felt my face flush at the thought and it increased because he was staring intently at me.
“Nirvia ” he whispered
Now I my whole body was heating up, this is the first time I’ve heard him say my name and it sounded like music to my ears.
“Yes” I answered shyly. I can’t believe I’m feeling shy, this must be the first time I’m feeling this way..
“What are you doing are you doing to me? ” he asked but before I could think of a suitable answer, his lips came crashing down on mine.
Shocked is an understatement of what I felt, but I forgot about that with the sudden urgency I felt. His hands were already working their way up and down my body and my hands instinctively drove into his hair. A soft moan escaped my lips as he trailed kisses down my neck. This is the best feeling I’ve ever had.
But my beautiful moment was interrupted by a deep old voice.
” I’m sorry to interrupt your romantic moment but this is not the right time and place to do this” the voice said…..

I growled frustrated as I’ve been trying to find the crystal but I couldn’t, it was as if someone was blocking me.
“Still can’t find it? ” Morena asked
“Yes, it’s as if someone is blocking it”. I replied.
“Let me give it a try” she said and started whispering some words.
“Its Arora ” she said
“Yes, she’s cast a blocking spell, it won’t allow you find the crystal ”
“How I’m I supposed to know where it is then ” I drawled.
Just then Malicia appeared.
“They’re on their way to the cave of Ziana ” she announced walking into the throne room. We were now in the palace.
“What are they going to do there? ” Morena asked.
“They’re going to receive some fresh air” Malicia replied sarcastically
“What else would they go there for? I can’t believe you’re this dumb Morena ”
“Look Malicia, don’t you dare insult me ” Morena snapped
“Well I think insults are the only things that can make that animal brain of yours function ” Malicia retorted.
“Hey hey hey you two “. I called stepping in between them.
“Why do you always argue? ” I asked knowing fully well that I’m the reason.
“She started it” Morena said
” Whatever ” Malicia replied rolling her eyes.
” Malicia, how do you know that they left for the cave? ” I asked
” I have someone amongst them working for me”
” Our son? ” I almost blurted out but then I remembered Morena is here.
” How sure is this person? ”
” Very sure, he’s also on his way there presently ”
” Alright then, there’s no time to waist”
” Morena, tell your son to bring out the army and start attacking ”
“Malicia, send a message to the warriors in the human world ”
“I will leave for the cave now, hopefully I will get there before them”
” Alright ” they both answered simultaneously.
I created a portal and entered.
I pulled away from her immediately I heard a voice.
“What came over me? ” I thought as I looked around for the owner of the voice we heard but I didn’t see anyone. Was I hallucinating or was it my subconscious telling me that I was doing something wrong?
I glanced at Nirvia and I almost regret it, her lips were swollen and her face flushed. I almost lost control again as I considered continuing from where I stopped when the voice brought me back to reality.
“I thought you were on way to the cave? ” the voice asked again, this time it was closer than before.
I quickly regained my stance and drew out my sword , so did Nirvia, her bow and arrow were already in position and she had resumed her serious face. Is this not the same person who was profusely blushing five seconds ago?
“Now come on you too, who said we were fighting? ” the voice said again.
I looked around but still saw no one.
“Over here, behind you” the voice said and we both turned around.
“Goddess ” I gasped and we both took several steps backward as we saw what was talking to us.
It.. It was the tree we were sitting under. It had a face… A face that wasn’t there when we first sat under it.
“Where did you come from? ” Nirvia asked
“I was here when you came to rest ” he answered
“But there was no face” I blurted out
” That was because I was taking a nap but your erotic scene woke me up. ” he replied.
“I’m Olly ” he introduced stretching forward a small branch that looked like a hand. I hesitantly shook it.
“You’re a tree” Nirvia said
“And you’re talking ” I added
“Yeah even trees talk you know ” he answered casually like it was a normal thing for a tree to have a face and talk.
“I should be angry that you disturbed my sleep but who would dare stay angry at his king”. He said and bowed making the whole tree bend.
“My king” he said.
“Um Mr Olly… My name is Drex not king” I replied
“I know your name but I can’t call you that because you’re our leader ”
“Okay” I replied even though I didn’t quite understand what he was saying.
“You were on way to the cave of Ziana weren’t you? ” he asked.
“Yes.. Um we just decided to rest a bit” I answered.
“Yes….. Oh yes you were resting indeed, I must say I admire your way of resting ” he snickered playfully.
“We should be on our way now, nice meeting you “. I said and grabbed hold of Nirvia’s hand.
I was slightly annoyed at myself for kissing her and annoyed at the Olly or whatever he called himself for interrupting. Did he have to wake up at that time?
“No no no my king”. He stopped us
“Since I’m awake now please give me the honour of helping you get there ”
“Let us help you ” he said
“You and who are going to help us? ”
“We the trees of this forest ” he replied and immediately the other trees that were in the forest awoke.
“Your highness” they chorused bending their trunks.
“What’s going on? ” Nirvia whispered to me
“I’m as confused as you are ” I whispered back.
Olly strechted out a branch in front of us gesturing us to climb it.
“Please your highness ” he bellowed.
We slowly climbed the branch and I made sure I held Nirvia tightly. She tensed as I wrapped my hands around her but I don’t care, there’s no way I’m letting go of her, before anything happens to her it must pass through me and besides we have unfinished business to settle.
Wait.. Wait… Wait.. What is wrong with me? I’m I falling for her?
