The Dark World: Part Four

by anela2003

THEY COULD HEAR the guards' footsteps. They sounded like an army. Dilsen and Elilah were very scared.

        "Look, Dilsen, a ladder. Hurry up!" Elilah shouted.

        They climbed up the ladder as soon as possible, but the guards arrived immediately. Lucky for them, they did not see them. Dilsen remembered the Dark Faerie told him the EVERLASTING POTION was on the last floor, and they were on the last floor. It seemed very empty, and they walked around looking for the chambers of the Faerie Queen. Suddenly they got to a hallway that was completely purple. Straight ahead was a door saying "Faerie Queen Chambers". Dilsen slowly peeked through the door and walked in alone, and Elilah stood in front of the door as a guard. He closed the door, and heard a voice suddenly.

        "You're here for the EVERLASTING POTION, aren't you?" a woman said.

        He turned around to realise it was the Faerie Queen herself.

        "How did you know?" he asked nervously.

        "I'm the Faerie Queen, I'm watching down on every single pet, and I know the Dark Faerie sent you," she continued.

        "But I don't, it's for my..." Dilsen was still nervous.

        "I know, your parents. I also heard rumours about her starting a war soon. She needs to be destroyed," the Faerie Queen stated.

        "But she's my mother," Dilsen defended the Dark Faerie.

        "You really believe that? She just wants you to get her the potion, and when you do, she will rule the world anyway. Don't be fooled. No faerie ever had a child. It's impossible, it's against the rules!" the Faerie Queen explained.

        "Maybe you're right," Dilsen answered.

        "I am. Here's a potion." She handed him a big, purple bottle.

        "Oh... the EVERLASTING POTION." He admired the bottle.

        "Not really. It's something I call the EVERJARING POTION," the Faerie Queen replied, giggling.

        "I don't understand." Dilsen seemed to be confused.

        "It's a Faerie Queen special. I use this on faeries that disobey, it works all the time. What it does is it puts faeries back into their jar. Use it on the Dark Faerie, and your parents will be free." The Faerie Queen looked at Dilsen once again, and vanished in smoke.

        Dilsen walked out of the room. He and Elilah hurried to exit the Hidden Tower. On their way Dilsen was sceptical. He thought to himself: "What if the Faerie Queen was lying? What if the Dark Faerie is really my mother? If I put her in that jar, I will be taking away the life of my OWN mother."

        "Dilsen, we're here, the Dark Tower. Hello?" Elilah tried to make conversation again.

        Finally, when she got his attention, he left her, and walked up to the big door again. The same creature opened the door, and he immediately walked to the Dark Faerie.

        "Ah... look who's here, my son... have you got my potion?" she smiled.

        "Yes..." he handed the potion to the Dark Faerie, and she drank it.

        "Delicious," she said. Now I have to wait to look younger. "I'm shrinking, help, help!"

        She was shrinking, indeed. Dilsen put her in a jar, and threw her in the river through the window. He rushed to his parents and freed them.

        "Son, thank you. We love you," Emiranda cried and embraced her son.

        "You don't believe she's your mother, do you?" Lenvin asked.

        "Nah... she lied. My real mother is right here," he said in a happy tone.

        They walked out of the Dark Tower. Elilah was surprised to see her parents again. After that Elilah was never mean to Dilsen again, and when they grew up, Dilsen became a guard at the Hidden Tower, and Elilah became a dancer at the same place. Strange...
