“Our princess has finally returned to her rightful place in darkness. She will send an attack on the rebels so we can reclaim the land they stole.” Lewis yelled, in reply in the hall, shouts and cheers grew all around. Galax looked down at the unusual carpet; a strange creature with body parts from a trident, a head as a trident as one. It was in movement position and under the picture was a strange and mysterious word ‘Ssenkrad’, to Miranda it was no sense. Galax noticed the words rearrange themselves in backwards form saying ‘Darkness’. Is this picture just a symbol of darkness, or something more to it? Galax thought and felt weird, she felt like she has seen such creature somewhere. “Bring entertainment to the clearing; remove the sacred carpet of our symbol.” As two soldiers rolled the carpet to the side, underneath were hot pieces of coal that never burned out. Miranda watched Lewis climb down the stairs and she then stood beside Galax in Lewis’ place.
A side door opened on Galax’s side of the hall, two soldiers brought in a young teen boy. He had blonde hair and wore light brown robes with bare feet; he was going to be forced onto the coal. “Joseph Tay is one captured spy before you returned to us.” Lewis pointed towards the teen as he entered the cleared floor, when Joseph looked up to their princess he gasped in terror. No, Galax is the princess of darkness. She was a treat to Tetris after all, she had tricked us.
In daylight; a stone fortress stood far from a gloomy woods, Sparker and Riowner stared from one window towards the woods of danger. Behind them; Tri-line, David, Crento and Kayleigh watched them look outside. David began to get impatient with Sparker and got frustrated on waiting for them to come up with a plan.
“Will you hurry up Sparker, why does it always take you this long to think of a plan?” David yelled but Tri-line held him since he was going to bash Sparker in the back. “With that princess there which is rumoured to have returned, he can’t win a fight against her.” Sparker just looked at him and turned around, he just took a step forward.
“It’s a lie, there isn’t a real princess there, and it’s a setup. For Galax Star,” Sparker spoke quietly, and looked at Riowner. “Rio is scanning the fortress, no sign of a princess anywhere or a king. Some there knows who she is and has told lies to their soldiers that this princess is unbeatable. They are right though about one thing, Galax is unbeatable. It was because of what happened to Sarika on Tetris, she broke his sword and threw it straight into him and out. She is unusual but she had told me that she has strange vision; extra parts come in every time a part fits correctly. I going to go in there and get her to come with us, then she will be safe.” With that Sparker rushed out of the stone room and out towards the gloomy woods for Galax.
“Hot, hot, hot! Get me off this now.” Joseph cried as everyone except Galax and Miranda laughed in excitement, Galax noticed near the back was Tantrum. She didn’t bother laughing at Joseph’s peril on the burning coal. Galax felt upset watching the torture Joseph had to put up with, one soldier stopped laughing and noticed Galax’s face of sadness. At the back Tantrum also noticed and threw her hand over her face and shook her head. Removing her hand she then noticed a soldier stand and point to Galax.
“This punishment used does not please our princess!” He shouted, everyone around him stopped and looked at him then to Galax. Lewis was last to look up and realised that he will lose his trust with Galax. Got to think of something before Galax finds out this nothing but a setup... Lewis thought and had an idea.
“This is the first time our princess has witnessed this kind of punishment,” Lewis began raising his arm into the air for attention. “Leave our prisoner in his cell and he will die without our princess’ eye watching. If it will please you my princess...” He looked Galax above him, but she just shook her head.
“Just leave him in his cell; I’ll deal with him later.” Galax commanded; two soldiers dragged Joseph off the burning coal and out of the hall. The mysterious carpet was unrolled over the coal, showing again the strange trident creature of darkness. At the back, Tantrum sighed in relief until a boy in dark brown clothing like a biscuit. His short, dark brown hair was straight and curved ends; he stared towards Galax in the golden throne. She saw him in the corner of her eye and puzzled, he’s not in on our secret so why is he here? Does someone not trust me now? Tantrum thought as he walked across towards the front where Lewis stood. Tantrum then stared at the Galax’s upset face but then she left the room as Miranda comforted Galax and also left the hall. The boy in his biscuit coloured clothing wasn’t noticed by anyone around him; watching Miranda take Galax into a hidden room behind the two gold thrones, he walked towards the side door Joseph was taken through. As he closed the door behind him and now inside a corridor, he lifted his top up slightly to a black belt holding a stone. This stone contained a carved letter ‘X’, the unusual stone started to glow dimly but as he walked along the straight corridor; it grown brighter. He turned and entered a spiral stairwell; climbing up the stairs with his top over the strange stone, the light from the stone was showing through his jumper. He finally came to a stop in front of a wooden door; he gripped the handle and pulled it open. Inside was Galax’s room, the door was camouflaged with the wall beside the wardrobe. The boy stepped in front of the oak doors and pulled hard on a handle; it was locked, he then became furious.
