Daydream

by DarkJade

“My Mother’s Garden…”

“Beams of Sunlight Part the Clouds, and strike my Face as I, Eyes Closed, Gaze towards the Heavens…”

“Purple Flowers…”

“The Taste of Salt on my Lips, From this warm Spring Day…”

“A Cool Breeze Carrying The Promising Pollen From Her Deep Purple Blooms Across The Air…”

The Year 2153

Aboard The Star Craft Excelon

A Young Girl, maybe 22, stands in front of a great window, of a very luxurious Star Craft Cabin.

Her hair is short, spiky and black…

Her body, petite, but strong.

The Cabin Lights are shut down, but you can still make out her grey, silver and faded blue Excelon Star Craft Uniform…

Her eyes are dark brown, but closed, when they should be open…

In her hands is a silver, ornate serving tray…

Upon it are three perfect glass science flasks…

Each one holding a different colored liquid.

The First is a murky brown… Almost as if someone mixed oil and water.

The Second, a “Pumpkin” colored orange.

And the Third… A Vibrant Blue, the likes of the Oceans of the Ancient Islands of Earth…

DAY DREAMING!!” suddenly the unnaturally bright Cabin Lights come on, and a partially robotic, partially synthetic voice speaks at the girl accusingly…

Her eyes, now heavy and saddened, open to the truth…

Across the room from her is the Owner of the Room…

The One she was meant to do deliver these 3 Colored Flasks to…

A SynthBot Named “Thompson Elias The Fourth“…

She turns to face these accusations…

“No… Please… I Wasn’t” she says apathetically. Almost, mockingly.

The lights on, a scar can be seen across her beautiful, almost otherwise porcelain face.

A 4 inch jagged reminder, of who is truly in control of this Space Bound World…

LIAR!!” Thomas says with a Robotic Sneer.

GUARDS!!!” he yells.

With this, two other Humans, these two both men, and also baring similar scars on their faces, enter the room.

These two are in All Black Uniforms, with Helmets which have Visors that cover their eyes.

And they each carry a long “Zapping” Stick.

“Yes My Liege” they both speak in unity.

Thomas holds up his Sparkling Partially Synthetic, Partially High End Robotics, Arm and points at the Dark Haired Girl…

SHE WAS DAYDREAMING!!” he proclaims.

TAKE HER AWAY!!” he demands.

With this she apathetically Gazes in Thomas’s Direction… Rage building inside her.

“The Name is Tara you Over Powered Food Dispenser” she plainly states, and the Rage subsides.

Quickly, the Two Human Guards grab her arms, and drag her out of the room.

She smiles knowingly at Thomas as she goes… He is not amused.

When they reach the hallway, she stands upright, and they escort her down the large Star Craft Hallway.

“Tara… For God Sake… Stop It!” one of the Guards suggests urgingly to her.

“Do you wish to be “Dismantled”??” he states more than asks.

“If you think I fear them for a minute… Then you are Greatly Mistaken” she says cockily.

“This is your Fourth Assignment in a row that you’ve rashly discarded…” the Guard explains.

“Just how long do you think it will be before they finally decide to “Deactivate” you?!” he exclaims.

With this Tara comes to a sudden halt, and looks at the Guard “Dismantle… Deactivate… Do you have any idea how “Wrong” that sounds when talking about a Human Being” the other Guard who doesn’t seem to care either way, grabs her arm and forces her forward.

“As The Second Guard Continues to Drag Me… I Hear The Subtle Sounds of Mozart Drifting Into The HallwayBefore Me…”

“All Sound and Movement seems to slow as we pass by an open door where some twenty or so of the SynthBots sit at School Like Desks, and are Forced to Listen to The Famous Composer Mozart, in hopes to Evoke some sort of a “Soul”… Something they definitely don’t have…”

“Something We Have, but They Don’t… And it Drives Them Mad… And in Their Madness, they’ve nearly Driven The Humans to Extinction… There’s only some Tens of Thousands of us left… Most of which are in Service aboard these Star Crafts, the SynthBots Call “Their Temples”… As they have as of yet, not found a place to Build Cities of their own… Being they took out Earth, whilst Taking out us…”

The door to the room closes, and we have passed it by…

“If they admire us so much, why do you think it is that they have decimated us to the remote Thousands in numbers… Down from Millions…” Tara says loudly.

“You mustn’t say these things Tara… Your Life is in Paramount Jeopardy!!” the Friendlier Guard exclaims to her, trying to quiet her.

“Paramount Jeopardy” she replies as she tries to shake off the other Guard from dragging her…

“Listen to yourself Tara… They’re doing their best to be “More Human”…” the friendly Guard implores.

“Where as you are doing your best to be “Robotic”” she replies.

With this the other Guard tosses Tara to the ground, and strikes her with the Electric Stick.

ZAPP!!

“AHH!!” she screams.

“Don’t you know only SynthBots are allowed to strike Humans…” the friendly Guard says to the other.

Tara wipes some blood from her lip.

“This one had it coming… She’s going to get us all killed” exclaims the Second Guard.

“That’s more like it” Tara says under her breath as she comes to her feet.

And with a sudden single blow, strikes the Second Guard in the jugular, causing him to crumple to the ground unconscious.

“TARA!! NO!!!” the friendlier Guard yells, as she takes off down the hallway.

Chess With Agatha…

And The Dark Fortress of Doom

A Novel by DarkJade

CHAPTER XIX – The Stand In King

THE PLANES OF BOLON

OUTSIDE THE ENTRANCE OF THE CAVERN OF MOSKK

Jodan, Hemmingbyrd and Agatha stand outside the Entrance of The Cavern of Moskk discussing their “Two Dragon” predicament.

Meanwhile, Morr puts The Queen Sorceress Olamna on a horse, and The Seven Remaining Dark Fortress of Doom Knights prepare the horses for travel.

And Iliad somersaults around Morr and the Knights Singing Songs of Doom…

“Ohhh, The Dragons They Came…

And Ate The Men…

Nothing They Could Do…

It Happened Twice As Fast…

As One Might Think…

As The Dragons Numbered…

Two…”

“QUIET FOOL!!” Hemmingbyrd suddenly yelled over to Iliad, breaking away from the conversation with Agatha and Jodan.

“Sorry about that… Continue” Hemmingbyrd spoke to Jodan and Agatha.

“Well, this is a real problem, as Moskk was to be our “Final Piece”…” spoke Jodan in a discouraged tone.

“Hmm… Yes, and we don’t want to offend Tu Masa, nor do we want to offend Moskk in asking her to step aside” spoke Hemmingbyrd.

“Yess… One Dragon is bad enough” Iliad suddenly appeared, and interjected.

“Shoosh!!” demanded Hemmingbyrd once more.

“And we also lost one of our Eight Dark Fortress of Doom Knights…” continues Jodan.

“Which seems to have shaken up the rest of them” replies Agatha, who gestures over to the rather nervous looking remaining seven, who have tied their comrades helmet and gear to his horse, after burying him.

“Yes… Well… He shouldn’t have touched Moskk’s Gold… That was a Grave Error…” interjected Hemmingbyrd who truly understands the workings of this world.

“Let Tu Masa take my spot…” proclaims Sir Elm of Tardenwhal who has just come out of the Entrance of Moskk’s Cavern.

“I’ll take the place of King Elias until we free him… After all… We need someone in that position per “War Game” Regulations, right??” Sir Elm employees.

“War Game Regulations… Those Silly Rules put in place to Regulate the amount of deaths that occur during War Time between different Peoples… So that we don’t Completely Massacre one another’s total Population before calling out a Winner… Uncanny” thinks Hemmingbyrd to himself.

“War Game Regulations?? But more like a Chess Game… Right?? Replies Agatha within Hemmingbyrd’s Mind.

With this Hemmingbyrd jumps, not having had anyone penetrate his mind before.

And gestures a wave of his hand at Agatha, as if telling her to get out of his head.

“Yes Agatha…” Iliad suddenly replies to Agatha’s thoughts, as he is well versed in speaking to her telepathically, from the many months of beconing her to come back to this world to save her father King Elias.

“Do yourself a favor, and don’t listen to Hemmingbyrd’s thoughts Agatha, they won’t always make sense, and may in some way disturb your mind… After all… He is a Wizard” Iliad continues with a smile, and places a hand on one of her shoulders.

“He does have a point… Your Father is rather “Tied Up” right now… And Certainly won’t be joining us in battle” Hemmingbryd says to Agatha.

“That way you can bring both of the Dragons…” Sir Elm says with a reassuring smile.

“Oh Joy…” Iliad says, but quickly scampers off before Hemmingbyrd can whack him with the end of his Staff.

“We don’t even know this Tu Masa…” Morr suddenly appears, and interjects.

“Moskk is renowned for his Honor in such matters as “War Time”, but he hardly even knows her himself…” Morr finishes.

Suddenly Tu Masa in her Human Form appears from the Entrance to the Cavern “Thank you for your Vote of Confidence… Vampire” hisses Tu Masa in Morr’s general direction, without actually looking at him… No her eyes never leave Agatha as she approaches.

Agatha takes note of this, but isn’t sure if she should smile at her, but does slightly anyway…

“Sterran Ogb Eden Moskk Parom” Dragon Words from Tu Masa suddenly enter Agatha’s mind, and then she walks away.

Without thinking, Agatha repeats the words out loud to the others “Sterran Ogb Eden Moskk Parom” and all of them look at her.

“Ha Ha” Sir Elm starts to laugh to the others surprise “She’s telling you to stay away from Moskk” he continues to laugh a bit.

Yet the others seem not amused… Especially Agatha who locates Tu Masa off in the distance, still staring at her.

“You do realize Sir Elm… Taking The King’s Position in Battle would put you in the Gravest of Risk…” implores Hemmingbyrd to Sir Elm.

“I understand” replies Sir Elm with the utmost confidence.

“Also, If they take you down… We shall be forced to yield to them” interjects Jodan.

“Not on my watch…” Agatha also interjects, her voice changed slightly, and her hair black as it often turns in battle…

“Hmm… Well then… Oindo Bloggen” replies Hemmingbyrd, with one of his strange words, which all take as “It’s Settled Then”.

“And Then There’s The Matter of “The Curse”…

That no one seems to want to talk about” sings Iliad in the background.

All save Agatha don’t really pay Iliad the Fool any mind… Agatha looks over at Iliad

“The Curse… Agamemnom… My Father has spoken of this to me” she thinks to Iliad, who merely smiles and continues to hum his somber melody.

As they begin to separate and go to their horses, Agatha makes a point to step over to Sir Elm.

“Thank you Sir Elm… You Place yourself in Great Danger by doing this…” she explains.

“We are all in Danger my sweet” with this he takes one of her hands and kisses it “Tis My Honor”.

Morr takes note of this, and feels an unfamiliar “Twinge” in his stomach, but pays it no mind.

“ARE WE READY THEN!!” Mosk suddenly steps out of the Cavern and walks into the nearby field… And that’s when he begins his change…

“Good Lord” Iliad proclaims out loud without thinking, as Moskk transforms into his Great Black Dragon Form, with Eyes of Silver… But he is some five times larger than any suspected he’d be.

“THERE WILL BE NO NEED FOR THE HORSES!!” he proclaims, indicating that half shall ride him, and the other half shall ride Tu Masa.

With this, Tu Masa also steps into the field, and transform into her Great Grey and Silver Dragon Form… She is perhaps 40% smaller, but can still carry many men.

All seem a feared, save Agatha whose Black Hair continues to Blare, and her Brilliant Eyes Radiate in Deep Glowing Blue…

Agatha steps towards Tu Masa “The Seven Dark Fortress of Doom Knights and I shall ride atop Tu Masa” with this the Knights look at one another, and with great apprehension, follow Agatha, who has now mounted Tu Masa.

“Well played girl…” says Hemmingbyrd under his breath, knowing Agatha has done this to build trust with Tu Masa.

“I shall make my own way!” Proclaims Morr, who places the Queen Sorceress Olamna upon Moskk’s back, and then disappears in a flash.

Tu Masa then hits the sky like a Lightning Bolt “HOLD ON BACK THERE!!” she yells.

And Jodan, Sir Elm, Iliad and The Blue Wizard Hemmingbyrd are now ready “WHEN YOU’RE READY MOSKK!!” Hemmingbyrd calls out as he raises his Staff to the Sky…

“AND OFF WE GO!!” Moskk calls out, and Swoops Up into the sky, disappearing into the Clouds.
