Legend of the Magic Crystals

Legend tells of three crystals: blue(teleportation), yellow(knowledge and power) and red(longlivety). However, it was foretold that only one person would be able to reunite the crystals and when that day comes, there would be peace throughout the land.

In one small town, isolated from the rest of the world is where the story begins. Pandonium sets out on a journey to retrieve the red crystal and use its magic to cure Z of his amnesia.

17. Chapter Sixteen - Alfield

Alfield had always been a place where farms take up most of the land space so even before entering Alfield, large farms and fields of plantation could already be seen with different types of creatures and machinery working on them. The sun had only begin to peek out from behind the rows and rows of field when they finally reach it's town square. Surrounding the town square were different buildings for different purposes.

 

"Let's head to the archives first." Eternia says enthusiastically.

 

"Eternia, after that entire night, I think everyone's tired." Pandonium remarks.

 

"All right, all of you shall go and rest while I check out the archive then." Eternia replies.

 

"Eternia, you need your rest too." Pandonium tells her.

 

"I'm good. Who wants to join me?" Eternia ask.

 

"If she insists on going, then I'll accompany her." Rave says. "I require little to no sleep at all and besides, I don't have anything else to do here anyway."

 

It was slightly after noon when Pandonium next woke up. Unable to locate Isengar, he headed straight for the archive thinking Isengar might have gone there.

 

"Nothing. Absolutely nothing." Eternia was speaking as he enters the archives. The room looks smaller from the inside. She had just closed a huge brown book and was looking at Rave. "Ooh, hi Pan. Feeling refresh?" Eternia ask turning towards him as if she knew it was him right from the start.

 

"Yes thanks. What were you talking about earlier?" Pandonium ask curiously.

 

"There is no information or history about any of the crystals in this archive. Why isn't there anything?" Eternia demands throwing the book onto the floor which in turns creates a loud noise causing everyone who was present in there to look at them.

 

"What do you think you're doing? That book doesn't belong to you. It belongs to the archives." a harpy who is in charge of the archives says while she hovers with her wings towards them. She had on her a blue uniform with laces and silver buttons with the word 'Ivy' on it. "Just tell me what you're looking for and I'll get it for you." she smiles pleasantly at them.

 

"Well.. is there a more private space where we can speak?" Eternia ask.

 

"Follow me." she says leading them into an even smaller back room. "So what is this about? If you're here about the machines, then I'm sorry you've wasted your trip. We're not selling them." she tells them.

 

"No, no. We're just wondering about a certain history." Eternia begin. "The one with Zathril within it. Do you have any idea about the crystal which he had on him?"

 

"Crystal? What crystal? I don't know what you're talking about. Get out of here." Ivy shouts.

 

"But... but..." Eternia stammers.

 

"I'll handle it." Rave whispers into Eternia's ear before turning to Ivy. "You know the crystal that we're talking about, don't you?" Rave asks her.

 

"I do." she replies. The way she speak and act was somewhat like how the empress had acted. "A lot of creatures have been asking about the crystal in the past. Unfortunately, our archive contains no information about it." she says unhappily. "I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help. Though I heard that it was destroyed. I hope that helps." she says smiling.

 

"What about Zathril? He was killed after departing from here right? Did you know which direction he was heading towards?" Pandonium ask.

 

"Why would I want to tell you that? And didn't I tell all of you to get out? What are you creatures still doing here?" Ivy questions raising her voice.

 

"I apologize but we need to know what you know about Zathril. If you may." Rave answers calmly.

 

"Of course I'll tell you. Zathril had been an exceedingly talented warrior during his time earning the respect of many. However, it was due to those reasons that gained him many enemies as well. Then one day while he was travelling towards Stratos from Alfield, he was killed, murdered for the crystal. Or at least, that's how the legend goes. After that, the crystal got destroyed to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. No one's ever seen it then."

 

"Thank you." Eternia thank Ivy but she took no notice of it.

 

"Let me know if you need anything else." Ivy says giving Rave a wink before walking away.

 

"She certainly was only interested in you." Eternia tells Rave when they are out of earshot from Ivy.

 

"Well, at least now we know the red crystal is no longer in existence." Pandonium says.

 

"What do you suggest we do?" Rave asks.

 

"How about going back in time to get it? That's the only option left." Eternia answers.

 

"Are you sure that's a good idea? I mean I have only used it to move from one place to another but never in between time. Will it work?" Pandonium ask, unsure.

 

"It will. If we combine it with the yellow crystal. Using the yellow crystal to project its power on the blue one and then using the blue crystal like how you used it for teleporting and we should be able to move through time." Eternia explains. "The only question remains is to go how far back and how would we know?"

 

"We'll know. Let's just get started now." Rave answers.

 

"How can you be so sure?" Eternia ask.

 

"The yellow crystal." Rave says.

 

"Right. Knowledge." Eternia says. "So where do we do this?" she ask.

 

"That farmhouse should suffice, right?" Isengar ask pointing out of a tiny window almost hidden by scrolls towards an old building. "Am I good or am I good? You see Isengar, you should be more like me so that things remain interesting." Isengar says laughing at himself.

 

"God, no. Please don't." Eternia says with a serious look as they exit the archives heading towards the farmhouse.

 

They position themselves such that Pandonium was facing Rave and Eternia facing Isengar after they close off the only door to the house to make sure no one would be able to see what they are doing. As Rave concentrates on the yellow crystal, with his hand outstretch towards Pandonium, the crystal begins to emit a yellow glow before shooting a beam straight into the blue crystal. A blue ball of light begin growing bigger and bigger engulfing them within and once it engulfs all four of them, the blue ball of light disappears along with them in it.
