4. Dantae's Pov (Terms of Battle)

 

     Suddenly I couldn't breath, we had come through the portal underwater. The sandy floor of the bay was covering under the blue waters, I pushed up and found my self right on the coast of an Island. The Palm trees vacated the ground and the sweet smell of coconut water filled the air. But realizing so fast that I couldn't see anyone in sight, it was just me here on the bay, as I made my way to the beach I took in the surroundings. The trees were not as seen as they were in pictures made by map makers. They hung over more and produced a smell of honey. The sky was an awkward color, it wasn't blue anymore it had turned a sort of Grayish - Purple. There were no clouds in the sky either. I hadn't noticed before but the water had also changed. It was a cyan mixture. I pondered on the place a moment, then I decide it was a dream world or something of the sort.

          As I made my way up the shore I also started to notice the similarities of the worlds, The grass was still green, maybe a slight tinge of yellow was added but I couldn't be for certain. There were also animals exactly the same. Suddenly I came to an opening surrounded by trees and I saw something sprouting from the inside, It was growing quite fast. I ran towards it, but as soon as I got into the circular opening the trees blended together and formed a tight thicket. I tried to run out but there was no escape. Then the sprout blossomed, and it opened like a portal. Suddenly a creature with semi-long legs stepped out, His torso was hardened, and looked like it was formed out of some kind of dark crystal formation surrounded by a lighter crystal. As if the darker ones were drawing power from both the other crystals and the life form it self. The face metamorphosed into a slick pale face that stretched up. The eyes were a pure purple there was a scar about the creatures left face. It was flamed. Then his arms then also metamorphosed into the air. Leaving him glazed in a trance. 

        I walked a bit closed until he came out of the sudden trance. Then he spoke words of some other language,  suddenly I could hear the words inside my head. 

       "Hello, Dantae I see that you have finally made it to my fortress. I have waited many years for this day to come, and I will win this final fight and you will lose and take my place here as protector of this entrance until the next victim takes your place"! He spoke in a sharp tone, and a Shroud voice.

      "Then I'll just have to beat you then, but If I beat you what do I get in return?". I thought shakily hoping that he would be able to hear me. 

       "Hmm, Strong boy I'm a noble Elve from the land of Elvsana, I hold up the bargain that if you beat me I will let you pass through these lands till you reach the camp of Illist. So do we have a deal young warrior." I shivered as the voice rang through out my head. I thought long and hard until I knew I could beat him.

        "Yes, I will agree to this terms" I thought. 

        "Let The Battle Begin" rang out a different voice into the area. 

        Suddenly the Elve started to run at me, his arms sprouted out into  shanks. They had spikes barring off of them and he was coming at me full force. Suddenly when his quick body was about to thrust the Shanks in my swords materialized into my hands and I cut one of the shanks in half, not before letting the other one cross my leg. The force of my sword sent him back. The dark crystal glowed and the shank grew back to its original size but now had a black radiation emitting from it. I took upon a new stance, I moved light and  not drastically. Making my moves perfect with every step. The Elve  kept trying to stab in very fast but I cut the stubs down each time. Making it so he couldn't hurt me. But he disappeared into the ground, with out warning and the jumped out and tried to slash me. I kept changing my stances, quickly moving away from where he was trying to stab, but it wasn't working. I needed to change up my battle style. So I jumped at him one sword held in my hand backward so that the shimmering sapphire encrusted blade was behind him in his left hand. Then In his right hand held the other mesmerizing blade in front so that he could attack twice in a short amount of time. 

    He kept on coming at me with his pointed arms. I felt light on my feet inching closer to his heart with every step. I was moving so fast I barley recognized that he had backed me up to a cliff that was over hooking the chasm below it. I found this out before it was too late. I slipped and fell into the dark crevice. 

    But then suddenly I felt a gush of wind fled through my body. Monumentally I was flying above the chasm with both swords tucked behind me. I looked down upon the Elve, and he was trembling with fear I could see it on his face. I gently was rested into the center of the field and the wind that had helped me suddenly vanished and in the corner of my eye I could see the medium sized man that had come with us at the last second standing there with his hands in a cone shape. Suddenly a big gust of wind like a cone surrounded me like a force field and blew the Elve away into the forest.

      The man ran towards me, "Are you okay, Dantae?"

     I stood shakily and Weary, "Yes, but how do you know who I am?" looking him in the face as he dug through his knapsack that he wore. Then he handed me a paper.

     As I read I started shaking and by the time I had gotten down to the bottom of the paper I crumpled it up and through it too the ground. I cleared my throat and said too the man.

    "But how did you know it was me, it would be heck of a guess to just assume it was me, and their is no way it was a lucky guess." I staggered out, and shivered as he stared at me with his dark eyes. 

    Looking at me, he fumbled his words but got out, "I had a certain feeling, like I was supposed to find you. When I got too the circle i just knew it was you." He stared into my face like I had, then we shook hands.

    "Nice to meet you, as you know I'm Dantae, but who are you." as I finished my sentence. When he was about too tell me his name, we heard a terrible amounts of shrieks coming from the forest. When I turned around I suddenly found us surrounded by the Elves and they were closely moving in on us and they said in a sudden, creepy wicked trance. 

    "Dantae this was a test for you and not others, but I have now reset the rules for our duel as you did. I get my team, as you get yours. So do you accept my terms, Dantae and Storm?" They said as the darkest hearted one stepped out in front of them and took his place as top dog. 

    Me and Storm looked at each other and with out even needing too ask him. We said in synchronization, "We accept your terms." The battle was about to begin.
