The Black Vortex: Part One

by snickering_1

KeirothMohaki is a strange pet, who isn't exactly a pet anymore. He's more of two pets. Mohaki is his evil side, and Keiroth is his good side. It's most simply put that way. They use the Lab Ray, and are currently aiming to become Krawks. Magic lets them keep their own true forms. Mohaki takes the appearance of a black, dragonish creature with large wings, and Keiroth looks like a little blue Krawk with Eyrie wings.

     On this particular day, Keiroth was asleep near the moat of Elgnad Castle, while Mohaki was inside, setting booby traps for unsuspecting guild members. He only ducked into the shadows as Kim came down the stairs with one of her pets, Kolence. Snarling quietly at the Kougra, Mohaki slipped past them to the kitchen.

     Shuribo, the Head Chef, was busy making a lovely batch of brownies. He didn't notice Mohaki slip into the storage room and take four entire bags of flour with him.

     Careful not to let Kim or any other guild members see him (but especially Kim, as she ran the guild), Mohaki placed the flour bags above various doors throughout the castle, and binding them there with magic. He also made sure that if someone opened the door, they'd be covered in flour before they could yell mercy.

     Feeling quite satisfied, Mohaki went upstairs to explore the towers. Just as he was about to go up the stairs, he heard a flutter of wings behind him. He spun around, eyes darting. But there was no one. Shrugging, he continued up the stairs, when...

     "Screeeeeeeeeeee!"

     Mohaki had just run into a Korbat, who was now hanging on to his nose by one claw, looking quite angry with him. "You twit! Be more careful!" she hissed, giving his nose a kick.

     Startled, he pulled away, rubbing his nose. "You should cut your claws sometime," he muttered.

     When he focused on her more, Mohaki saw that it was Arytil, his second-cousin, who stood before him.

     "Ary! What in blazes are you doing here?" he asked, squinting down at her.

     Arytil folded her wings. "The only reason I ventured to this hideous place was to get you," she spat. "Fro and I need your help."

     Mohaki sighed. "Not Syn again, is it?"

     Arytil nodded. "We need you to help us find her. She's stolen something of ours."

     "And what might that be?"

     "You ask too many questions!" she hissed. "Will you help us or not?"

     Mohaki went into a thinking pose. "I don't know, I'm pretty busy..."

     That was the last straw. Arytil bit Mohaki hard on the hand, and listened with satisfaction as he howled in pain.

     "Get off o' me, you little vermin!" he yelled as he tried to pry the mutant off of him.

     "You'ff goffa helf!" she said, still latched on to Mohaki's hand.

     "All right! I'll help!"

     Arytil grinned and released. Mohaki drew back instantly, rubbing his wounded hand.

     "Meet me in the forest tonight, by the old Shadow Tree. We'll be waiting." With a glinting smile, Ary disappeared in a puff of smoke.

     "Stupid relatives," muttered Mohaki, leaving the castle. On his way out, he spied Keiroth sleeping and promptly shoved him into the mote. Splashing around in the water, Keiroth suddenly realised how fun it was to go swimming. Now he was having fun, which made Mohaki even angrier.

     That night, back at Mohaki's NeoHome, he was having fun turning Snicker's hot dog into a block of ice. Snicker, his 'owner,' glared at him from across the table.

     "Change it back, Mohaki, NOW," she said sternly.

     Mohaki smiled, and the ice was once again a hot dog. Snicker gave him a sceptical look, and bit into it. Two seconds later, she spit it out.

     "MOHAKI!" she screamed, revealing a rather cold hot dog with a frozen interior.

     Jaziron, a split Kyrii, burst out laughing. Shining_Safyre tried to keep quiet, but it was no use. She and Jaziron had to lean on each other to keep from falling over.

     LyvessAngel started to cough loudly. It was pretty obvious that this was a cover-up for the laugh.

     "This is NOT funny!" Snicker shouted, shaking her fist. "Mohaki, you and Kei-"

     Keiroth was no where to be seen, and this is the moment where it was finally noticed. Snicker was turning bright red, glaring at Mohaki.

     "Where's Keiroth?!" she asked him.

     "I dunno," Mohaki replied simply.

     "Well you'd better find him!"

     "All right, all right, I'll go look for him," Mohaki said, slipping out the door. Perfect excuse to go to the forest to meet Arytil. Great plan.

     Keiroth was conveniently tied up in the forest, scared to death. So that's where Mohaki would go. He was a genius.

     Mohaki took a flying leap, and soared through the air towards the forest.
