the legend of arkadia
| it took a lot of bravery, and a lot of work, but, eventually, the 3 friends managed to escape the worst of the snakes.
" why are these snakes so angry?" asked gemma
" because, " snarled wil, " snakes are not nice creatures. what kind of a question is that?"
" a very good question, actually. ". they spun around to se where the voice was coming from.
" holy hell," cried wil, " a talking snake!".
the snake that had spoken was a massive python. the biggest snake of the lot.
" okay, " said wil. " why is it a good question?. tell us tell us. "
the snake hissed. " we used to be human. well, we wern't humans like you 3, we were... we were woriors. we defended the city and most importantly, we kep myron from interfering with our world. ".
" what's this got to do with why we are here?" amy asked weakly.
" well, you see, between us, we made a home for ourselves. we made a huge city, with huge gates around it. we had everything, from houses, to a school, we even had our own battle field. "
"so life was pretty good then, " said gemma.
" yes, it was. anyway, to cut a long story short, 1 day, laticia, who claimed to be 1 of us, betrayed the city. she placed a horrible curse on the city, which tore down the gates. that was only the start. we believe that laticia and myron are working side by side, to destroy the rest of us. ever since the curse, myron's been acting strange.... not letting anyone near the city, not even letting us have food, hell, not even giving us any light. it's been dark for 500 years. "
"so the snakes?" asked wil. " how'd you become snakes?"
" when the gates fell, that's when it happened. god.... it's such a horrible curse. we've lost everything, everything!. "
"so is latisha human too?" asked wil.
" yes, she's the queen."
" well, what do you want us to do?"
" it's simple, we want you to lift the curse. we believe, that if humans can enter latisha's castle, and kill her, it may prompt myron to leave the city, their for restoring our worior forms, and the city can be rebuilt. "
" that's why myron wouldn't let anyone near the city," will said. " because he knows that only humans can break the curse. "
" got it too," said gemma.
the snake continued. " killing latisha will not be easy. she is resistant to most things."
" so what will kill her?" asked wil
" fire. latisha can't stand fire. if you head out in to the ruins, you'll come across a magic fire blade. we believe myron made the mistake of burying it before he took over the city. find it, enter the castle, kill latisha, and their will be something in it for you, too!. "
" what?" asked wil. " what kind of thing?.
" we'd need help rebuilding the city, and we will need new rulers. go now, i must sleep. "
as if by magic, all the snakes stopped hissing, and the portal to the ruins opened up before them.
