Story Seven Hundred Eighty Five Ends Friday, September 8th

"WARNING: CRASH IMMINENT"

"WARNING: LOW ON FUEL"

"WARNING: EXTERIOR DAMAGE"

"WARN-"

Ral began slamming down on the computer to make it stop spitting out warning after warning.

"I know, I know! I am here! Now shut up!" You could barely hear his yells over the sirens and warnings. They were blaring in his ears.

The Grundo had no options here. He tried to correct the ship to find a safe place to land, but there was nothing. It was hard enough controlling the ship in a straight line in its current condition.

Then, a sudden crackle and a BOOM shook Ral. His steering system had just shorted out and exploded on him. He had no handle on the ship now.

He looked out at dismay to realize he was hurdling towards...

...Lutari Island. At least, as far as he could tell; the whole island seemed to be covered with a thick fog and Ral could barely make out any of its details, let alone the terrain.

Without any control left on his ship he got back into his seat, buckled himself in and braced himself for the imminent crash landing. His eyes closed tightly shut as he heard the whistle from outside the ship, indicating the increasing speed. Passing seconds felt like hours.

BOOM.

Upon contact Ral was painfully jolted as the craft smashed into the ground and began to skid, taking out a number of trees as it came to its eventual stop. Even after it stopped the Grundo stayed put, still bracing for more.

About thirty seconds ticked by before he took a deep breath and unbuckled his seat belt. He hadn't even seen the whole extent of the damage yet but he knew this was not going to be easy to clean up.

Ral stood up with a painful grunt and made his way to the door to outside. He put in the code to open it, but even that wasn't working. With a struggle and determination he fought to manually open the door, only to see...

...that his ship had stopped just shy of toppling over the edge of a massive cliff face. With quite an audible gulp, Ral staggered away from his broken and battered spaceship, away from the precipice where it had begun teetering dangerously. With a screech of tortured metal and a crumble of Stone, the Grundo pilot watched helplessly as his faithful vehicle finally tipped over the edge, sliding out of sight and through a low hanging cloud.

Knees quite suddenly weak, Ral couldn't stop himself from crumbling to the ground, landing hard on his rump with a thump. Antennae drooping, he put his head into his hands. "...What am I supposed to do now?" He groaned out loud to himself, jumping slightly when he heard a distant crash that meant his ship had finally made it to the bottom of the cliff.

"Wow... I mean, just... WOW!" A squeaky voice suddenly exclaimed from somewhere behind Ral, A set of bushes beginning to shake quite excitedly.

"That was the coolest thing I've ever seen!"The voice continued, growing closer before a small explosion seemed to occur, a small figure sending out a spray of leaves as they leapt towards the astonished Grundo, skidding to a stop only a few inches away, revealing themselves to be a young...

...Blue Lutari all alone, her eyes bright and round with curiosity. “You’re funny looking,” She said.

Ral blinked, astonished. He’d thought Lutari Island was completely deserted. “Who are you?”

Before the Lutari could answer, another white Lutari appeared from the fog, this time her pelt was white, and she seemed much older than the blue Lutari.

“Lily, what happened?” She called. “I heard a crash.”

“I’m fine!” The blue Lutari called. “I’m fine!”

“Who’s that?” Ral asked.

“That’s Pam,” Lily said, turning back to her. “I found a spaceship and a funny looking Neopet!”

The white Lutari leapt up to where Lily was and turned to Ral, her ear flicking. “I don’t know who you are and why you’re here.” Now that up close, Ral could see that her muzzle was tinged with gray hairs. She must be Lily’s guardian, he thought.

“Ma’am,” He said. “I am Ral the Grundo and I crash landed here. My ship is damaged and I was hoping someone could help me...”

"I will help you!" Said Lily. "It will be fun."

"No, you will not be helping anyone Lily," said Pam in a stern voice. "Now run along home before you get into anymore trouble."

Once Lily was out of sight, Pam spoke softly. "I know who you are," she said. "I know why you are here."

Ral was confused but decided to go along with what Pam was saying, just to see what would happen.

"So you will help me then?" Ral asked.

"Of course," Pam replied. "I have what you are looking for."

Pam pulled out a small bag and handed it to Ral. Ral took it and gasped when he looked inside and saw...

a scroll.

"It will help guide you to your destiny." Pam spoke softly.

Ral looked puzzled at her, "Destiny? What destiny? I only want to get back home."

Pam's eyes grew bright, "A long time ago, there was a prophecy that a stranger would crash land here and that I would have to help him follow his true destiny."

"But what is my destiny?" He asked confused.

"The answer is in the scroll," she pointed at it, "open it."

Ral stood silent for a moment wondering whether to open it or not. He finally pushed himself to open it. He slowly started to unroll it and saw...

A scribbled map of Lutari Island with a huge red marker printed on top of the tallest mountain on the island.

Ral screwed his face and continued to turn the map in all directions, as he tried to find his bearings.

Pam laughed. "Here let me help you.

She reached out for the map and gently took it from Ral. She studied the scroll for a few seconds before pointing to where they both stood.

"We are here, we will need to make our way a few miles east and bravely tackle the largest rock face on this island." Pam explained.

Ral contemplated Pam's plan for a while but wasn't sure why he needs to go with her. All he wanted to do was go home.

"My destiny is to go home, back to my family, back to my friends." Ral cried as he sharply turned away from Pam.

The Blue Lutari sighed as she rolled the scroll up, she stepped over to Ral and placed her arm around his shoulder.

"You destiny is to save this island." She paused as she wiped a tear from her eye. "Our species is under extreme danger, danger that we can not fight alone. What ever lies on that mountain, if it could possibly help us, why wouldn't you try?"

Ral Knew Pam was right, how could he live with himself if he didn't at least try.

"Ok, lets go!"

The pair left to site of the space wreckage and began the journey to the tallest mountain know on Lutari Island.

----

As the sun began to set, the pair reached to foot of the mountain. The weather was surprisingly calm although thick fog had started to roll in.

"Are you ready?" Pam asked Ral with excitement.

The Grundo let out an unnerving laugh, although he wasn't totally believing the whole prophecy and destiny promise, He knew that the Lutari's would help him get back home if he helped them.

Together they both took their first steps up the mountain.

"This isn't so bad." Ral loudly said.

By the time an hour had passed, the pair where at least half way up, the weather had took a turn for the worst and large gales blew, sweeping around the mountain.

Battling through the harsh winds the Grundo trekked with determination. Following Pam's lead he finally made it to the top.

"We are standing exactly where the marker said, and nothing to be seen." Ral complained.

In that moment loud scratching and scrapping pierced Ral's ears. He turned around to see Pam digging.

Suddenly she hit a chest.

Together they both pulled the chest from the ground.

"I'll let you open it Ral." Pam said.

Ral knelt down, took a deep breath and opened the chest to reveal his destiny...

Date: Sep 7th
...A puff of musty air emanated from the inside of the chest, causing both Ral and Pam to recoil while coughing as it dissipated. The cause of the odor was apparent upon closer inspection; Ral noticed that a majority of the chest was filled with old netting and rotting, waterlogged wood.

"Just a bunch of junk," the Grundo grumbled as he sifted through the mess, scowling at the bits of ancient, dried seaweed that crumbled beneath his prying fingers. "Hang on... what's this?"

At the very bottom of the chest was a large, round rainbow gem. Given its considerable diameter, the gem was surprisingly light, as though it were hollow. Pam gasped when Ral pulled it from the chest.

"That... that must be the Tiiqan Bead. I thought it was just a myth," the white Lutari said. At Ral's baffled look, she added, "We Lutaris keep Talismans with various beads on them. Most of the beads aren't common, but they aren't super rare either. But every talisman has a slot on the back where the Tiiqan Bead is meant to go. It is said that any Talisman with a Tiiqan Bead will make all of its owner's wishes come true. I thought it was just a story told to children, I had no idea the Bead existed."

Ral didn't have a Talisman, but he rather liked the idea of having all his dreams come true. Before he could say so, however, Pam grabbed his hand. "We need to take this to the Lutari elders."

"I thought it was my destiny," protested Ral.

"It is your destiny!" Pam insisted. "Your destiny is to bring this to the elders so that we can save Lutari Island from..."

...sinking," she admitted. "As the fog and gloom have taken over the Island over the years, the Island itself seems to be giving up. Each year, its altitude above sea level drops. But with this," Pam said, eyes shining bright with hope, "you can save us all."

Ral stared at her, shocked.

"Now, follow me to the elders," urged Pam.

The two scrambled down the mountain, through a patch of thick jungle, and finally came upon a small wooden hut, with smoke rising in tendrils out of a hole in its roof. Pam led them inside.

Within were three very old-looking Lutaris, seated around a fire pit. Pam immediately directed her attention to the one in the middle. "Xelio," she said, talking quickly. "We found the solution to our Island's problem."

The Lutari known as Xelio eyed her cautiously. "Oh? What is this solution?" He turned to Ral. "And who is this?"

"This is Ral, the Grundo from the prophecy," Pam explained. "He is here to save us. With the help of the Tiiqan Bead we found -"

"Did you say 'Tiiqan Bead'?" Xelio gasped, looking at the Lutaris next to him. "Even we thought we'd never see the Bead in our lifetimes. Show it here," he said.

Ral passed over the rainbow gem. Xelio examined it closely, eyes widening. "This is it, this is really it." He looked up at Ral. "I hope you will listen closely to my following instructions, because the act may only be completed by you, young Ral..."

How will the story end?

...You need to take this talisman, it is yours now." Xelio said as he handed a empty talisman to Ral. "Take the Tiiqan Bead and place it on your talisman. As you are placing the bead, make your wish that will save all of Lutari Island. This is your Destiny."

Ral nodded, He couldn't believe he was destined to save Lutari Island.

Ral looked at his talisman, he saw the spot where the Tiiqan Bead belonged. Ral took the bead, and carefully placed it on his talisman. As Ral was setting the Tiiqan Bead in place, he began to speak. "My greatest wish is that Lutari Island will stop sinking, I want Lutari Island to be around forever in all of its glory."

The talisman began to shake in Rals hands. It Began to glow and then a bolt of light emerged from it and filled the entire room and the entire sky. The ground began to tremble and then move. You could feel Lutari Island rising up way above sea level.

"You did it!" Yelled Pam, "Lutari Island has been saved!"

Ral couldn't help but smile.

"Thank you young Grundo," Xelio said. "Lutari Island is forever grateful to you. I would like to do something to show you how thankful we all are."

Xelio waved his arms and a brand new ship appeared. "Now you may come and go as you please." He said.

Ral smiled, this was the best day ever.

The End.
