The Dark World: Part Three

by anela2003

Nobody spoke on their way to the Hidden Tower. What if he failed? What if he didn't bring back the potion? Would his parents die? Would he die? Would the Dark Faerie rule all of Neopia? Thoughts rushed through Dilsen's head, and he did not know what to think. He was confused.

It was strange for Dilsen to rob those that are good, and to give to the bad, but he had to do it. Finally, he and his sister arrived in front of the Hidden Tower. There were many guards, and it seemed very dangerous. However, Dilsen continued walking.

"Where do you think you're going?" he asked his sister.

"With you," she answered.

"How about no?"

"How about yes?"

"Elilah, I'm going by myself. It's dangerous," Dilsen explained.

"But I want to go."

"You can't go, you have a big mouth! You'll get me in trouble!" Dilsen said in a loud tone.

"Ahem!" Somebody behind them was clearing his throat. It was a guard.

"Why are you guys here?" he asked.

"Um, we're here to see the Soup Faerie, we're hungry," Dilsen answered.

"I see, and why can't she go because she has a big mouth?" the guard kept asking.

"Um, well, sir, since there are so many poor and hungry pets, I just don't think it's fair to make somebody with a big mouth eat, she'll steal all their food," Dilsen explained, realising he was not making any sense.

The guard looked at them strangely. "You must be either stupid or new. I hope it's the second option. This is the Hidden Tower, Soup Faeries are somewhere else."

"Oh...." The siblings were playing stupid. "We're sorry. Bye."

They walked away. Both were furious at each other, but they forgot all about it when they saw a crowd of young pets. Dilsen pushed his sister into the crowd.

"Ouch, why are you pushing me?" she asked.

"Can't you see? This is a class on a field trip, pretend like you're part of them," Dilsen explained. They tried to hide their faces, but after they entered the Hidden Tower, the teacher noticed them. "Wait!" she shouted. "These are not our kids!"

"Intruders!" a guard shouted. "After them!" Dilsen and Elilah started running as fast as possible. They ran so fast, they couldn't even feel their feet. They found an old and abandoned building, and went in while the guards passed them. Just when it was safe to go, Elilah said: "Look, stairs. Maybe they lead to the EVERLASTING POTION."

They walked up the stairs and came to a room full of faeries belly dancing to Sakhmetian music. They were watching them from the distance.

"Help! Help! A snake!" Elilah shouted. Dilsen grabbed his sister and both went to a nearby room. Everybody circled around the snake, but there was nobody there.

All of a sudden they heard a knock on their door.

"Murana, Habibah, the king is ready for your performance. If you don't get out in two minutes, you know what will happen. He doesn't like waiting, hurry up, or do you want to go to the dog chambers?" a woman said.

"We're coming," Dilsen said in a woman's voice.

"Here, put this on." His sister was already dressed.

"But I'm a guy," Dilsen answered.

"Not really, you're in between." Elilah smiled.

Dilsen put on a wig and clothes, and both of them went outside. The king was in front of them, waiting for them to dance. They did not know how to dance, but somehow they managed to copy the previous dancers' moves. After the dance was over, he called them to sit next to them.

"What names do you two wonderful ladies possess?" he asked.

"I'm Habibah, and that is Murana," Elilah said.

"And where are you from?" he asked.

"Tyrannia," Elilah answered.

"Tyrannia? That's strange. Nobody from Tyrannia dances here," he said. "We're mixed. We're half Tyrannian and half Sakhmetian," Elilah said.

"Wonderful," the king continued. "And why do you, my precious lady, not speak this wonderful evening?" he faced Dilsen.

"Oh, me... I have a cold. And I'm a little bit shy. And I'm also very honoured to meet the King of Sakhmet." Dilsen was nervous, So nervous, he had to scratch his head. Unfortunately, he soon found out his wig fell off.

"You're not a woman!" the king shouted, and they started running away. "Catch them! Hurry! Intruders!" The king was very furious.

Dilsen and Elilah ran as fast as possible. They came to a dead end. There were walls all around them, and the guards were after them. They were in big trouble.
