Seos: also thanks
Now, my next chapter.
[b][u]Chapter 3[/b][/u] The Forest
Joey came too and looked around him. They were in the middle of some kinda forest. He had never seen these types of plants. The plants were very strange, but he put it in the back of his mind. He looked over to see Sara lying unconscious and stood up. They were no where near civilization.
Man, where did that guy take us?
He only had a pocketknife that he had brought with him in case of emergency. He had been very lucky to bring it with him. But how was he supposed to survive with just a pocketknife? They had to find civilization somewhere, and fast. He saw Sara begin to wake up.
.where are we?
Im not sure, but it seems like were no where near civilization.
Thats just wonderful. We need to start going then. Im not exactly fit for outdoor life.
Joey laughed. A surge of pain flowed through him. He must have broken a rib or two with that fall.
I must have fallen harder than I thought.
Im just glad were still alive. I wonder why Cody didnt kill us then and there; he said he was the most powerful being in both realms, whatever that means.
Sara, I have a strong sense that were not on Earth.
Me too. Joey, can you help me up?
Joey grabbed Saras hand and pulled her up. He noticed that she grabbed her leg as she got up.
Are you hurt Sara?
Well, my leg does hurt quite a bit. I think I might have sprained something.
Can you walk?
Yeah, I think so.
They picked a path and started walking. They had walked for what seemed like hours, and they had traveled quite a few miles.
Sara, you have to learn how to harness that power you shot at Cody. If that can hurt HIM, then it should work wonders for regular people.
Well, the thing is, Im not really sure how I did it. It was kind of like a reaction. I didnt do it because I wanted to. It felt more like a need. I dont know, Joey.
As she turned her head, a wolf-like figure slowly walked out onto the path.
Oh my God, Joey, what is that!?
I dont know, but now would be a good time to figure out how to use that beam!
Im telling you, Joey, I DONT KNOW H-
Before she could finish, the wolf leaped at her, knocking her to the ground.
YOU GET OFF OF HER!
Joey sprinted toward the dog. He grabbed the pocketknife he had taken with him and stabbed it multiple times in the chest. The dog didnt even flinch as Joey wounded it. Sara was struggling to keep the dog from hurting her. The dog finally gave up and tackled Joey. The pocketknife was thrown aside as Joey was knocked down.
Sara, grab the knife!
Sara struggled to get up, but managed to get the pocketknife and ran over to Joey.
Can you hold it down?
Are you kidding? This thing is huge!
Joey wrestled with it for a bit, but finally pinned it down.
She stabbed it in the chest and neck. The dog choked and growled, but finally fell over and died.
I can understand why Cody sent us here to die. Joey dusted his self off and stood up.
Yeah, and thats probably not the worst thing well encounter if we stay here any longer. Weve got to hurry.
They walked through the woods for hours on end until they began to grow exhausted.
When is this forest going to end? Joey began to get angry.
After an hour and a half, Joey stopped.
I cant take all of this stupid WALKING!
Joey found the nearest tree and punched it. He stood in shock as the tree slowly split in half and fell.
Umm, Sara. What did I just do?
I dont know, but your fist was glowing green before you punched that tree.
Wow, thats cool.
They continued following the path until finally they saw light.
Light doesnt exactly mean civilization, Sara. But at least well get out of this forest. They ran out of the woods and into the clearing.
Meanwhile, in The New Orders Headquarters, Krator and Cody were conversing.
Calm down Cody, We have them in our grasp.
Why cant we just kill them now?
Because, Cody, if they change their minds about serving us, they could wipe out The Resistance' themselves; with a little training of course.
But you need to think a bit. They have both already figured out the basics to the emeralds. If they decide NOT to join us, and join The Revolution instead, they could be the end of us.
Since when did they learn the basics? Cody winced at the ignorance of Krator. Why didnt Krator remember how he told him of how Sara learned of the Bondage Beam?
Well, I told you about Saras power. But now Joey has learned how to manipulate the energy to further increase damage of his blows. To learn what theyve learned in a few hours would take 25 years of full training! It seems that the stronger the bond between the two emeralds, the faster you learn the fundamentals of them. Oh, and to tell you how strong they are, before they even knew how to use their powers, they killed the graunt I sent to kill them
.with a pocketknife.
Are you telling me they killed a four foot tall, 350lb graunt with a POCKETKNIFE?
Yes sir. But we shouldnt worry about it too much. Theyre nearing the Myst. The Wavvas should take care of them. Their population is about 3000 in that concentrated area. Cody felt a strange sense of remorse towards letting them die. He wasnt quite sure to what it was, but he felt like it wasnt exactly their time.
The only problem is that the boy is a black belt in karate. He also took Judo for a little while. It will certainly help him, now that he can further power his blows.
You fail to see that there are 3000 wavvas to the two of them. I mean, the wavvas have slaughtered whole cities of people. These two should be a piece of cake.
Well, Im sorry your majesty, but I must depart. I have a few other matters to attend to.
Cody stared at Krator for a little while. Why was he giving him that look? Cody turned and left the throne room, and started to ponder a few things. Why was Krator acting so strange? It seemed as if he was being used. Cody did not deal with being used. He was treating him like a pawn. Why am I starting to feel as if Im going to be useless after the children die?
With a sudden change of heart, Cody ran to the nearest balcony. He looked around to check if anyone was looking. With a final look, he dove off of the balcony.
