I should have just walked away, yet here I am being pursued by Dumb 1 & Dumb 2. Really this is my fault, if I had just acted like nothing happened I would be home, playing video games with my brother and a coke but no I just had to laugh didn't I.now My heart beating more and more I feel enclosed I take a sharp turn and find myself cornered by the dumbs, I can’t take this. I storm through them running while my heart acts as a stampede of bulls and it’s not just my heart, it’s also Dumb 1 & Dumb 2. I think I would have just stayed in the corner and gotten the beating of my life instead of having a beating for eternity. And yet again my mind brings me back to when me and my father pretended to be ants and of course he would make it educational since he was an anthologist, but that was all taken away from me and my family. but now back to the real world where I dropped a milk on the classic school bullies. I keep running and I look behind me and I see them tripping. I make it just in time back to my home escaping the bullies and putting on my headphones, then I hear my brother calling me and I know why. My brother needs me to do his science homework again, it involves ants and I am the guy to go to for ants I mean people hate them but they’re amazing and real troopers in the insect world. Later that night I heard a loud buzzing sound I go to investigate, as I creep down the stairs and as I creep closer and closer the noise becomes greater and greater until they're on my mom’s favorite carpet lays a [[portal]] to who knows where, as I creep closer in astonishment I see some sort of large bent pole and to my amazement it wiggles ever so slightly as I come up closer I tug on the pole, which by the way never do in a million year because this small harmless action got me in big trouble. So as I pull the pole, it swings with a mighty swing and I spontaneously fall in the portal.I find myself in a foreign land that resembles a medieval video game I used to enjoy with my father. Me and my father were like twins we resembled one another almost exactly I have dirty blonde hair as well did he, I have green eyes too, the only thing is I’m skinny and I have a birthmark on my belly in the shape of a sword and shield but like my dad I’m average height I am 5.1, my dad was around 6.2. Although I and my brother look like opposites I guess he got mom’s genes. He has black hair he’s paler than sour cream and has giant blue eyes that would make him look like a wise old man, he’s also is fitted with glasses as well as a [[scar]] on his hand. As I take a look around I heard wind roaring like a lion that has not eaten in a week, and the trees which stand out due to the fact they are a bright shade of violet and the mountains are taller than the sky itself and upon the hill of one stands a castle but I must be imagining things and also to my surprise all around me lay thousands of leaves which are turquoise and the river which can bring peace from anyone as I look up I notice a flying insect. Quite a pleasant place as I go to grab my phone I notice I resemble an ant, as I scream bloody murder I notice I’m wearing no clothes either, I almost faint then I realize I’m of the Formica rufa species and that’s when I feel lucky because I’m in a forest and My diet consists of wood and other insects. And that’s when my mind begins to conjure the fact that if I’m an ant then what stops other primitive ants from being here. As dusk falls over the mysterious land I find myself scurrying for shelter as I become discouraged feeling as if I’ll be trapped in this [[land of mystery]] I see light as I run on all fours I call out “anyone there.” I see the home of this light it is a village of sorts as I open the gate and wander through I see a clock tower a bakery painted brown a town square with an enormous amount of yellow hay which has hay around and a fortress as I wander through the square I call out for help as I turn around to my disbelief a group of mysteriously sinister-looking [[ants]] creeps up on me.
A few of the ants covered in armor approach me and say, “ Who are you, traveler, I am the knight of these lands, protector of the wizard Gantolf’’ said the knight in a raspy tone as I stare in confusion the ant says “ well are you going to respond traveler,’’ the knight is older than the rest for he has a large white mustache on his lip, and he has a mighty sword which says on the handle welded by the protector of [[Gandolf]].As I respond “excuse me.” Where are my manners I am Finnick If I could speak to you that would be great, thank you, and to my surprise, he responds with “ you can speak to my marvelous sword if you’d like strange traveler Finnick.” As he begins to charge he freezes as if he died on the spot. then from the shadows of the haystack rises a slender figure with a dark blue pointy hat and robe with little stars, he is chanting a rhythmic tune when he stops the knight falls into some feces resembling the shape of a cucumber as he begins to stroke his ancient beard he has a loud laugh ‘’haha! come young one we must discuss in private of your arrival if choose to join me.¨
[[choose "yes" and join Gantolf on his quest]]
[[choose "no" and venture into the mysterious forest]] As he leads me through the coble clock tower I can feel the light breeze rushing through the stares as they fall onto my rough yet bold exoskeleton. Once we are up the hall I see a room with a window showing the beauty of the small village and the far left a bench and a mirror to the right and underneath the mirror is a desk with a hairbrush, as I say in confusion, extraordinary one? For what do you mean sir? I mean I’m talking to an ant wizard “ please my name is Gantolf and do you not know It is your destiny to arrive here in these lands from afar from the town of SanDiego. Young Finnick you are to free us of the oppression of the evil king but do not fear I have gained troops through my journey and with your help we will defeat him and you will fulfill the prophecy and become [[king]] of these majestic lands.”he fear of all that is happening finally takes control of me as I turn opposite from Gantolf I come to he decided to turn down the offer and take on this mysterious world on my own. I come to find myself in the wondrous and magical woods that lay just outside of the small humble village as I look back, I can see the light of the place slowly fade into the [[dark]] frontier that awaits me. at this point I am in astonishment I don’t believe it but yet again I’m talking to an ant so I’m not sure what to think but me? They clearly have the wrong guy, I’m just a kid from California who does normal kid stuff and gets good grades. I tell Gantolf that there’s a mistake and as I open my mouth the crazy ant Gantolf beats me to it, no wonder they call them crazy ants Gantolf is eccentric after all Gantolf reaches into his pocket and reveals a Moleskine, “boy if you do not believe me look in this book of tales and you shall see the writing” Said Gantolf in a raspy tone, as I open the leather Moleskine. On the first page, a group of weird symbols is shown as I flip through page after page I finally spot the writing on what seems to be the two-hundredth page the writing states, “the boy with the birthmark in the shape of a sword and shield will defeat the [[evil king]] and take his place as king”. And to my astonishment, I can clearly see the birthmark on my rough Formica rufa Exoskeleton. As I begin to open my mouth and ask for clothes Gantolf says “You need clothes I shall grab what you need young Finnick”. As he returns after a number of minutes I see him coming through the dark cobblestone staircase with a pair of trousers, a tunic and to top it off a belt, but as he drops the clothes on my cold lap I see a slender wooden box with entwined gold strips in the hands of Ganatolf he sits the box on the bunch of clothes as I move my slender fingers ever so slightly the box seems to vibrate violently as a plane would during a scene of turbulence. The box comes to a stop and a mighty light shines out of it and the box opens revealing a mighty [[silver claymore]] with a blue handle and small ants rolling up the side of the claymore.
I Take the sword out and take a shallow swing with enthusiasm as I ask Gantolf what the sword is for he says “Finnick this claymore was made for the ant warrior of our age, the sword was given to our kind by the great goddess with this sword you will defeat all evil.” As I hold the sword in my hand I feel a rush of exhilaration and at that moment I hear “Knock, knock, knock.” As Gantolf goes to investigate the sound the door bursts open with a loud thump and a team of ant wizards come through knocking Gantolf to the ground cold while [[casting a spell]].No doubt their thief ants there all wearing dark robes and each of them has a grin on their face quite the annoying ants they must have come through the staircase but how so silently I ran the thing cause its so creepy. I have two plans one is where I fight and come out victories, the next one is where is Gantolf flees and I flee or perhaps fight if needed. I have to decide what to do fast.
[[choose to "fight side by side with Gantolf"]]
[[choose to "save Gantolf by telling him to flee"]] As I get deeper into the dark forest I begin to see the luminosity of the place. I can hear the birds chirping and the small glowing insects buzzing all over the place but still, I feel the crush of companionship as I have not one ant, and nor human around me for miles or so I thought, but still with all the colors flourishing still there's an uneasy feeling that's slowly taking me over. As I creep through the bright [[magical forest]] I see smoke just beyond the bundle of pines in front of me.As I chase for it like it’s my pray it is a cozy cabin made from the native pine surrounding the cabin. I take a long look at the cabin and see the door is open. I creep towards it now in caution I hear a slow creek come from the stairs I peek through the door and see two large figures or at least that’s as many as I can see at the peak of the small stairs in the [[pine cabin]].I pick up a rock as if it will do anything when all it is doing is blocking my monstrous fear of the fate that lies above the stairs. As I bring myself together I grasp the rock firmly and charge with a force I have never felt before. As my speed grows I can hear the surprise of the my entrence as they mumble then there’s a loud thud and I fall to the ground. [[continue->fighting]]As hatred runs through me I think about his trial as I know I can’t say no,but I lie and say what prophecy in an anxious voice then he responds saying “lets not lie to one and other ok”the fear of his words runs through me like a bullet I say ok then he says in a displeased tone “good,” And as my thoughts run through my mind I ask what happens if I fail your trial “ then you will spend the rest of your days as a servant to me or maybe you could forfeit and live happily ever after.”
[[choose to particapate in his trial->kingdom]]
[[go out to fight a beast you heard of->decline and go out and learn more of a rumor you heard of a beast.]] I Take the sword out and take a shallow swing with enthusiasm as I ask Gantolf what the sword is for he says “Finnick this claymore was made for the ant warrior of our age, the sword was given to our kind by the great goddess with this sword you will defeat all evil.” As I hold the sword in my hand I feel a rush of exhilaration and at that moment I hear “Knock, knock, knock.” As Gantolf goes to investigate the sound the door bursts open with a loud thump and a team of ant wizards come through knocking Gantolf to the ground [[cold]] and casting a spell.My mind comes to an abrupt stop and I yell at Gantolf to run, he does as I ask without further notice as he begins to head out the door into the dark dank staircase he turns around and sends a strong blast temporarily disorientated. I use that time to reach for my sword now glowing brighter than ever as they begin to stand that’s when I fall into a trance and I find myself in a dark [[endless]] marble Room. can just barely make out a figure in the distance of the endless void I call out to it but all the figure does is glance at me and disappear, then I begin to hear a voice calling to me as I find myself running forward the sound grows and grows until it comes to an [[abrupt]] stop. I turn around and see the figure but it seems like someone you would find in a lucid dream. The figure seems like a shadow It begins to speak again “use the sword.” Then I’m back where I am with the sword in one hand. The first Ant charges at me with a wand in hand I doge his mighty blasts and he the [[blast]] takes out his other companion.. I charge with the sword at the remaining two ready to attack but instead of the sword coming in contact an orange beam of light nocks them both out, I run down the dark stone stairs only to find Gantolf captured by a large brute his face covered by a helmet but with a [[sword and shield in hand]].I charge at him but he deflects the attack with grace and knocked me to the ground as I lift myself while trembling I take another swing and It pierces his exoskeleton through his silver armor, the red flows through the reflection of the armor the brute picks up his mighty shield and takes a swift swing at my head I’m knocked cold and the flow of blood pouring from my head can’t be stopped.
[[YOU DIED!->casting a spell]] No doubt their thief ants there all wearing dark robes and each of them has a grin on their face quite the annoying ants they must have come through the staircase but how so silently I ran the thing cause its so creepy, As I swing my sword and take out one wizard out of blind luck I grasp Gandalf with my claws that's when I notice strange images portrayed on his exoskeleton some sort of mighty ant [[fighting]] of other ants that's when I blackout.
When I wake up I am sitting on a luxurious couch fitted with gold pillows and A ceiling with a large mural on the sides of the rooms are windows with gold frames as I go to the door I open it and find myself in an Identical room but there on the couch is sitting a human, yes a human who is masked. The figure where's a dark black cape over his dark set of armor which in some way resembles dragon scales. as he rises slowly the masked figure says “I know who you are, do you know who I am?” where’s Gantolf? I say “I am the king and he’s dead, I want to challenge you to a [[trial,->destiny]] and yes only one if you win I will allow you to follow your destiny or whatnot.”
As I begin to think I chose to agree to his terms and be a player in his challenge and hopefully save this kingdom.the King places a blindfold over my head so I don't know where we are going. After a long bumpy carriage ride or that’s what I think it is. He takes my blindfold off as I look around I see little trees and a large patch of bumpy meadow in which seems like I can smell from miles as I look around I see a large marble stadium, one of the guards dressed in black pushes me forward into the stadium as I walk I notice the torches lit through the anterior of the large stadium as the guard pushes a door forward there sits the masked King on a throne of gold and granite he stands up and says “have you guessed what this challenge will be” he asks I reply with a polite no “we will have a joust’’ as I have no jousting background I know I'm [[doomed]].I came to the decision to end my hunger for the rumor I heard of in the little town where my journey began. The king allowed me to leave for 1 month and later come back. I leave the castle and find my self in the woods separating me and the village as I cautiously pull out my sword I take my first step in this so-called enchanted forest. Its been around a half-day journey and it’s getting dark so I look for shelter. After an hour I believe I will never come to find the warmth of protection I look up at the dancing stars then I see it there off I the distance is smoke from a fire I chase the smell of burning wood till I see an Ant wrinkled by age sitting by the fire I creep closer and when I’m 10 yards away I ask if he would mind sharing his fire he responds [[vigorously]] “no I wouldn’t mind.” I set my self on the spruce log and set my hand a yard away from the flames of the burning fire. After a few minutes of silence, I ask “have you heard of the beast by chance.” he looks at me with a monstrous grin and points to the cave at the top of a hill not far from where we stand. “ I wouldn’t go there if I were you, ha, people tend to go missen in them parts.” I chuckle awkwardly and explain why I hear to him he says “I’ll take you there but nothing further than the bottom of the [[hill]].” he said in his country accent, we agree to head out in the morning. It’s the morning and the sun out in a blaze the old man puts the water out and we start our journey. We begin to head into a darker forest that’s when the rustling in the wind begins to pick up and the bushed begin to shake then a large spider approaches from the trees and lands a few feet from my face the old man explains how they are one of the [[spiders]] who inhabit these parts of the forest. The spider screeches and I pull out the sword without hesitation and take one critical swing and the spider slices right open and we begin on our trail again. I reach the top of the hill after long after the old man left me to fulfill my quest alone but I can’t stop the feeling that im bieng followed, must be my imagination acting up, but the darkness of the forest is crippling my emotions. Im at the entrance to the dank cave I use all my power to take the first step in a second prior a rower rages from the dark cave I take one other step until i'm [[freely walking]]. One at the end I hear a scream I rush, sword in hand through the dank cave until I come upon the old man alone lying on the floor. I hear a sudden chuckle and a large horned beast with red scales emerge from the excess of skin from the old man who perhaps was the beast all along. “Your no ain't your humans aren't you!” the demon said in a deep and dark tone. I whip out my now inflamed with swirls of yellow and red sword in the blink of an eye and some part of my body takes me over, ive never felt this confidence but I wonder what will I do to stop this terrorising menace.
[[take a swing with all your might at the denting his scales]]
[[cast all your power to send a beam of ornange light through your flaming sword]]I look around for any clues to defeating him. The large inflamed demon charges at me, fire in raging from his horns I swiftly move away from the beasts path. He runs into the dark stone wall and gives me just [[enough]] time to look for a way to beat him.You send a beam of light, his scales transform into a shield and it deflects the attack and It hits you even though the pain is unbearable you stand up and use all your might and your new beam takes out the beast and knocks him to his [[knees]]. You ask him about portals and he says “end me know and i’ll reward you with a portal, please it’s too much pain. You end him with a swift attack from your sword and a portal appears behind the carcass you enter It.
[[ENTER]]You wake up in your room and your mother yells at you to eat your food.
[[restart->Story]] I finally see a large pointed stone on the peak over the eerie fog which surrounds the dank cave I look back at the beast to find one horn unlatched from the clutches of the crippled wall. I take out my sword and without thinking a large lazing beam emits from the silver tip knocking the stone and impaling the helpless beast I walk up to the dying creature and ask about the portals “never.” the beast responds then he takes his final breath and a large glowing portal appears behind the carcass I begin to contemplate whether I am to stay and become king or go home.
[[ stay and become king]]
[[leave to see my family->family]] I lift myself from the grassy floor and find myself just outside the village where my journey began.
I choose to stay and rule this kingdom the way It should be ruled. I take out the sword with my four legs and I somehow appear in the king's room there are diamonds and endless jewels in every corner I creep closer and closer inch by inch until I reach the foot of the bed I take my sword out and decide whether or not this is the best thing to do. It’s two years later and I sit on the throne. No one can know the king perished so I wear his mask that's when I heard the news that a boy arrives and is said to be the new king.
[[Restart->Story]] A guard dressed in dark grey and black armor who is growing with age due to the white strands going down his thick beard leads me into the golden corridor as we walk in silence I ask what horse will we use he stares at me in confusion as I try to explain it to him, now that I realize it there world is completely different from mine they have turquoise leaves and violet trees and not to mention magical ants so I give up trying to explain. Finally we arrive at the wooden gate which leads to the arena as I can imagine the king must be in a luxurious room but here I am separated from the number of soldiers in the seats around the arena as the gate opens dramatically a loud crank I get sick to my stomach as I realize I will die and there's nothing I can do, he obviously knows how to joust and I don't the odds are [[stacked]] up on me. As I shuffle my feet through the sand in the pit I see the King there completely suited with armor as I stand parallel from a couple of hundred yards away wearing what Gantolf gave me. I feel a pulse of fear ran through me as I get in my position. Then I hear a gong and an announcer say “one, two…, THREE!.” and we charge as the exhilaration rushes through me I bolt my eyes [[shut]] and then I hear a “thump!" I unlock my eyes and see the King on the hard sandy ground with his dark scaly mask as I hold my jousting pole ready to destroy. I see his face and then my heart shatters like glass and I realize he's my father then I feel the drops of salty tears drip down my chin onto the yellow sand and I hear the clank of the pole dropping as I look back at him I see the flow of tears go down his face as well and as we both sit there sobbing I hear him say “I’m sorry I got greedy and felt jealousy towards my own son just because he was part of a [[prophecy”.]] As I look back speechless I truly forgive him even after everything I still do I remember all the nights we spent playing and having fun “It started when I was walking down a narrow path in the ally on marina boulevard and I fell into something and ended up here, I’m sorry [[son]].”
I forgive you, Dad, I love you no matter what. As we stand up we look at each other in our matching eyes deeply I and then we smile.
Its three hours later and I find myself in a luxurious room filled with little ruby and gold trinkets of all different sorts there’s a large window showing the pure fragile beauty of the snowy mountains ahead and a large comfy bed all to myself. After my Dad leaves the room and I doze off to sleep I begin to conjure my adventure in my mind and how I will have to leave and then the door opens with a light ominous creek and my father is standing there with a chest, as he hands it to me I open the lock and see a gold pin with a blue center as I hug him he looks at me and says “I've done dreadful things Finnick I can’t be the leader of these [[fine]] people you have to.” I look at him and say did you expect me to be king, no way I don’t know the first thing about it, you need to be king and fix your wrongs ok “ok” he says back then he says “I didn't know it was you till you started crying the I knew it had to be my son” I know dad I reply as he slowly leaves the room I tuck myself in and sleep on a good note, unlike many other hours of [[darkness.]] I wake up to find myself in a completely different room there's a door a TV hooked up to a dark black video game console and even a dark spruce desk with a luminous lamp on the right corner yet somehow It rings a bell as I look around I realize I’m at home in my soft bed then it hits me that whole adventure was all a dream and my father really isn't coming back as a few drops of tears run down my eyes I wipe them off and I move towards my dresser a little more cheerfully as I dress myself I brush my teeth thoroughly and head to the table to have breakfast, I see my brother and mother and I race towards them with glee and squeeze them and tell them how much I’ve missed them even though there they seem [[baffled]]. I eat my breakfast quickly and head out through the front door as I’m walking through to school Dumb 1 & Dumb 2 jump out surprisingly I’m not frightened and I look at them and frown I push past them and continue strolling gleefully as I look back I see a car some plants and there standing perplexed is Dumb 1 & Dumb 2 I continue on my way to school one I am at the front of the school where you can see the flag and the two large pillars something pokes me in my pocket as I reach down I feel a cold hard object touch the tips of my fingers as I pull the object out and I see the gold shine almost in an instant prior to me pulling it out and then I see the blue glare in the center.
