The Last Stand: Part Three

by fire_faerie_8080

The Charge

89203 Guild Street 7:30 NST

I woke up yawned stretched and went down for breakfast. I noticed a note on my door.

Hand over the amulet you pesky
Peophin or your family will suffer!

--Dark Faerie

"Oh no what will I do!" I cried and ran to make sure it wasn't just a cruel joke.

It looked as if Air_Faerie_8080 hadn't returned home. I ran to Chloe52589's room and was horrified to find it trashed the window open and the curtain billowing. I ran to fire_faerie_8080's room and saw almost the same scene. I went out to the hall sank to floor and just cried in despair.

"Don't despair young one there is a way find the light and you will triumph once and for all," a voice that seemed to come from out of the air called.

"Wh-who's there," I called.

I decided no one was there and I decided the stuff about the light may have been nonsense but I knew I could not despair. I got up set the rooms in best an order as I could and took my spare waterproof backpack and took supplies and headed for the coast to rescue my family.

Meanwhile-

"Yes, little fool walk right into my trap, Muhahaha!" cackled the Dark Faerie.

"Dark_Fang go intercept her at the coast," the Dark Faerie ordered a Skeith.

"Yes mistress," he replied and went to go his mistresses bidding.

The Lost Desert Beach-

I climbed onto the beach and made the decision to walk to Tyrannia just in case they might decide to wait for me on the shore. I headed toward where the sand met the Haunted Woods and I found a small dune to camp under. I started a fire and made myself a healthy Carrot and Pea Omelette and a Bottle of Water. I unrolled my sleeping bag and stretched out and fell asleep. I woke up very early and packed up camp and set out through the Haunted Woods. I thankfully didn't encounter anything out of the ordinary. I made it to the Brain Tree and took a seat to rest and have some water. I got up and set out again. I found it was getting very cold I knew I was getting ever closer to Happy Valley. I found a ferry to take me to Faerieland and I went to visit the Healing Springs. I was given Lime Elixir and then I decided to swim the rest of the way to avoid freezing my tail off in Happy Valley. I saw the outline of the shore I also noticed a strong storm was brewing. The waves became choppy and the waves began to swell higher than the third story of a NeoHome. It began to thunder the lightning streaked across the horizon. The waves became even larger and the wind was overpowering I felt like I was barely swimming ahead. I couldn't see the coast the rain came down in torrents it was blinding. I was repeatedly hammered by the waves then as a new wave crashed over me a piece of driftwood knocked me senseless. I was at the mercy of the sea.

Hope

I smelled the salt and felt the smooth wet sand on my cheek I coughed up some salt water and opened my eyes at first the sun was almost blinding and my vision swam before my eyes. I laid there waiting for my vision to return to normal after a while it did and noticed that all could see was pink. The I heard a sly mew as two amber eyes opened from the pink. I was startled so I leapt back. I sighed relaxing seeing it was only a Pink Angelpuss. It was unusual to see them in Tyrannia especially a pink one. I went up to it and checked to see if it had a collar or some sort of name tag. It didn't so I decided it was wild and decided to into the forest to find a place to rest and have some food. I looked behind me it was hopping along after me.

"Oh all right... all ready you can come with me but you must be a good little Angelpuss," I turned and said to it. It purred happily and flew up and sat on my backpack.

"I suppose you need a name what should I call you. Hmm... oh, I know! I'll call you Joy because you are a joyful little thing," I exclaimed happily.

I found a nice coconut palm to sit under I had some water and an apple. I found a coconut to give to joy so she could have the coconut milk. All the sudden a Skeith jumped out at me I threw my bottle of water and hit him square in the eyes he bellowed in rage. I scooped up Joy and put on my Battlemask and picked up my Gold Baled of Peophin. At the moment he attacked I was thanking my lucky faeries I had thought to put my battle gear in my waterproof bag and that I hadn't lost the bag at sea.

Meanwhile-

"You won't stand a chance against Dark_Fang," cackled the Dark Faerie.

"Snarl bring the prisoners in to watch their friend's demise," she yelled at the Skeith guard who ran to obey.

"What do you want," growled Air_Faerie_8080.

"To see you suffer as your sister is destroyed right before your eyes!" exclaimed the Dark Faerie.

"You are too optimistic for you own good she is a lot stronger than she appears!" yelled Chloe52589 trying to lunge and attack the Dark Faerie.

"Here's your front row seat," she cackled grinning as she performed a charm to make it look like they were actually there when in reality they hadn't move a centimetre. Tyrannian Jungle time unknown to cherish808 and Dark_Fang who are engaged in a battle.

"Destroying you will be a pleasure," growled the Skeith

"You won't have that pleasure!" I screamed, taking my blade slashing and hacking with my blade and plowing into him and attacking him with the stout metal horn on my battlemask. I parried most of the attacks but was caught off guard for a moment and felt the Skeith bite me but only for a moment until I smacked him with the flat of my Gold Blade of Peophin. I used the ability Heal and recovered almost immediately. The Skeith then charged and knocked me into a tree I saw stars as my head cracked into the tree as the tree whipped into from the impact that had created many cracks in the some what fragile trunk. I felt like I was going to faint but I battled bravely on. He rammed into a much more stout tree and the impact created one very deep crack in the trunk. Little did I know that fire_faerie_8080 was silently weeping in a castle not far away at her poor baby being beaten into a pulp. I felt very unsteady as I struggled to get back up. It was about to attack me again when little Joy did something very stupid but brave she flew in a pink blur and attacked him the eyes giving me time to recover. I was almost at the Skeith's mercy when I remembered something that my sister Air Faerie had told me about. She had told me the story of her first encounter with the Rainbow Scorchstone. I remembered her saying that she had concentrated really hard and somehow used the power of the amulet. I was in a tight spot so I decided to try it. I closed my eyes and concentrated really hard soon I began to get a tingly feeling. I opened my eyes. I attacked with renewed strength and let a mighty blast of energy immediately destroying the Skeith and then the tingly feeling began to recede and I fell to the ground unconscious. Oblivious to the fact that my sisters and mum were all weeping thinking that I had destroyed myself.
