Princess Skralla: Rising Darkness
Chapter 1: The Era of Shadow Begins...
Skralla and her teammates ran for their lives. Behind them were the other Glatorian and Agori that attended the celebration. Behind the fleeing crowd, Atero finally collapsed into the ground as the shadows encased it.
How could this happen, she thought.
Just a few minutes ago, Skralla and her friends were in the midst of a celebration for saving the Skrall from taking over Bara Magna. Now a new threat arises and some unknown forces already took her necklace, leaving her powerless.
It wasn’t easy to evacuate all of the Glatorian and Agori, since many of them panicked, worried that they be trapped beneath the rubble and possibly die.
Everyone scattered in the wastelands and divided up. One team included Skralla, Tuma, Mata Nui, Strakk, Tarix, Gresh and Ackar.
“Just great!” snapped Ackar, “We can’t get peace and prosperity for once!”
“I know. First of all, a planet shatters, then Skrall taking over, now this!” snapped Gresh.
“But you weren’t there to see “The Shattering”, Gresh,” said Tarix.
“I know. But from what you and Strakk told me, I can imagine how bad it was.”
“I don’t know if there’s time left,” said Tuma, pointing at the skies.
The skies were slowly getting darker. The shadows were beginning a countdown to take over Bara Magna. Someone wanted that necklace but none of them could figure out who took it.
“Just how are we going to get that necklace back? Now it’s in the wrong hands and whoever got it is probably taking over Bara Magna,” said Ackar.
Far from Bara Magna, in the heart of a place of darkness, the dark being was laughing sinisterly.
“At last! I knew one day this necklace will be mine!”
Another being appeared and said, “What do you plan on doing with it?”
“What am I doing? Universe domination of course! Better yet, Bara Magna is slowly turning into a planet of darkness! Once I get my sample of this “rumored liquid” I will use the powers of this necklace with the liquid. I will then have a body of my own that I can use! Then we can take over Aqueous Magna and the Red Star! As well as other universes that are existing!”
A Vorox, Zesk, Kiina, Vastus, Stronius, and Gelu were heading towards Roxtus. They believed that the shadows were coming from there.
“Just how are we going to retrieve that necklace?” asked Kiina, “Whoever has it now is probably invincible to defeat.”
“Perhaps it was some legend that none of us knew about,” said the Vorox.
“No, it’s not that,” said Stronius, “That vortex of energy seemed familiar. I remember seeing on Tuma’s Throne one day, that same day when Tuma declared world domination.”
“Should we just go to the throne and see?” asked Gelu.
“We’d better check the village first before entering Tuma’s Fortress,” said Stronius, “Or else someone might be welcoming us.”
Tarduk, Berix, Raanu, Metus and Atakus, flanked by a few Zesk were heading towards Vulcanus with Malum. The exiled Glatorian was rehired by Raanu since he was helping the Glatorian during the war.
“Any sign yet?” asked Raanu.
Malum looked around and said, “No, but the darkness is heading towards Vulcanus!”
“I’m not allowing Vulcanus to be enveloped by the darkness!” shouted Raanu as they ran.
Vulcanus, once the home of the Fire Tribe was becoming a new home for the darkness. When they arrived, the skies were pitched black. Lightning struck a few structures, brining them down.
“This is bad,” said Berix.
“We have to move out or else we’re next!” said Raanu.
“What happened here?” asked Kiina.
They arrived at Tuma’s fortress after a quick search in Roxtus. The Throne was still gold but nearby there was some unknown substance, dripping from one of the pipes.
Stronius took a scoop of the substance but it burned his hand. He yelped and shook it off.
“That substance has returned!” said Stronius, shocked.
“What do you mean?” asked Vastus.
“That same one back over 100,000 years ago…the one that we were fighting about,” answered Kiina.
“What does this mean?” asked Gelu.
“There could be another shattering,” answered Vastus.
