Chess With Agatha…

And The Dark Fortress of Doom

A Novel by DarkJade

CHAPTER IX – The Red and Blue Forest

As The Blue Wizard Hemmingbyrd, Jodan, Morr, Iliad, Agatha and Eight of The Dark Fortress of Doom’s Guard make their way through the Luminous Red and Blue Forest of Doth

Agatha’s Eyes are darting all about in absolute amazement.

Four Guards in front, four in back, Jodan behind the front guards, Morr all the way in back of the back guards… With Agatha, Hemmingbyrd and Iliad ridding in the middle.

“I have never seen anywhere like this Hemmingbyrd… Never… Not even remotely” Agatha explains in a barely audible whisper.

“Good” he simply replies.

“Do not fear My Lady… You are well protected” Iliad says trying to put her at ease, though he himself is shaking in his boots so to speak.

“Okay… Protected from what??” she replies, her eyes even wider and brighter blue than they were before, and still darting all about.

“We should make camp soon Wizard” Jodan looks back and speaks at Hemmingbyrd.

“Very well… Make it so” Hemmingbyrd dismissively replies.

“What? Here??” Agatha interjects, fear in her voice “We’re going to camp in this Forest??”.

“Oh dear” Iliad says quietly under his breath.

“You heard Jodan… Ambazo” Hemmingbyrd replies almost feistily, and then rides to the front to discuss it with Jodan”.

“Ambazo?” Agatha replies.

“Yeah tell me about it” Iliad replies, and then remembers that Agatha doesn’t understand Hemmingbyrd’s “Odd” words.

“Oh… Well… Basically it means–” he starts to explain, but Agatha interrupts.

“I get it… I get it… “Damn it Girl”” she replies as her eyes continue to dart about.

“Well… Yes… Basically” Iliad replies.


Jodan and the Guards have made a fire, and four of them are standing guard while the others get some rest… Planning to rotate shifts in the middle of the night.

Meanwhile, Jodan, Iliad, Hemmingbyrd and Agatha sit by the fire cooking meat on a stick.

Morr is by his mount, rustling around in one of his bags.

“Tell me about this place Hemmingbyrd…” Agatha requests with the utmost of interest in her voice.

Hemmingbyrd takes a stringy, chewy bite of the rodent that the guards had caught them for dinner “Blark!!” then spits it out, and tosses the stick in the fire.

“I’ll stick to Sourdust” he speaks.

He then looks at Agatha who is patiently waiting.

“Icy… Dead… Walkers” is all he says, and then rises and stretches.

“Alright then, I’m off, get some sleep you all” and walks off to his sleeping place.

Meanwhile Agatha’s eyes are as wide as they’ve been.

“Gotta love that Wizard… Get to sleep you two, you’ll need the rest, we’ve a long ride to Yokade Labrynth the next few days” he says, and then goes to talk to one of the guards.

“Yokade Labrynth??” Agatha is hardly able to utter, as Iliad gets under his “not warm enough” blanket.

“Yeah… Sure… If the Icy Dead Walkers don’t kill us first” he mumbles as he falls to sleep almost immediately.

This of course leaves no one to talk to… But Morr.

Just as Morr finishes up whatever he’s doing with his saddle bags, he turns to find Agatha standing there.

“Icy Dead Walkers??” she plainly states.

The Mind Chronicles – Mutant Siege

Mutant Siege



High Senator Richards and Captain Raf Mulian are standing over their Global Mutant Detection Screen.

“How Long until they reach N One…” Senator Richards asks Captain Raf.

“The First Wave of Mutants will begin to reach the Outer Perimeters of N One within the next 12 to 18 hours… And from there it’s only going to get worse” he explains.

“How many Mutants are we talking about?” he questions the Captain.

“Hard to say for sure… The initial Reports look to be around 8 to 12 Thousand 1st Breeders… After that–” he explains, but The Senator cuts him off mid sentence.

“I don’t want to know beyond Wave One… One thing at a time…” he says as he starts to head towards his office.

“Yes Sir… But–” The Captain tries to plea a bit to him, but he wont have it.

“No Captain… Report to me when you have your Defensive Strategy sketched out for dealing with The First Wave” The Senator replies, then goes into his Office and shuts the door.

“Yes Sir…” The Captain says under his breath.


The Mind’s Vehicle makes its way across the fairly charred Yukon Territory, Canada. East of Fairbanks Alaska.

Jarod, and the two Ex Canada Legionnaires Sprig and Nick are playing Cards in the back of the Vehicle.

Meanwhile Farahi sits in the Cockpit Passanger Seat as The Mind Drives.

“Where are we heading Mind…” Farahi asks a grumpy Mind, as he’s been driving for days.

“East” he replies flatly without looking at her.

“Was it worth it?” she asks.

“What losing my Lavish Tower for the chance to kill a hand full of the Mutants…” with this he looks at her.

“You Better Fu@#’n believe it” he replies.

Farahi smiles slightly.

“I am fairly alarmed that N One hasn’t more aggressively begun pursuing me… Or at least, it doesn’t appear as though they have” The Mind discloses.

“Maybe it’s a trap?” Farahi replies.

“Not likely… Trapping me isn’t really a Strategy they’re liable to try and use against this” with this The Mind points at his own head.

“Mmm” she replies.

“Mmm??!” The Mind replies back and hits the breaks, bringing the vehicle to a complete stop.


“GIVE ME A DAMN MOMENT CAPTAIN!!” The Mind replies to Jarod, who shrugs, and continues to play cards.

“I want you to think of a number between 1 and 1000” The Mind says to Farahi.

“Uhhh” she replies.

“6!” he announces.

“AGAIN!” he says robustly.

“Err” she replies.

“17!” with this she looks shocked “Any more doubts, leave a note in my box little lady” he then steps on the gas.

Things are quiet for maybe 20 minutes before The Mind speaks.

“I give you 1 to 1,000, and you choose 6 and 17?” she looks over with a half smile.

“I’m surprised you made it all the way to Alaska with limitations like that” he expresses.

Suddenly she looks a bit sad “Well, 17–“.

“Is your age, yes, I know” he points at his head again.

“And 6…” she starts to tear up.

With this he suddenly puts his hand on hers “Your little brother that you lost… Forgive me… I may be smart, but I’m not always sensitive” with this she smiles again.

“It’s ok Mind… At least you’re kind enough to share your Ride” she replies with a smile.

He looks over at her…. “Kind… Is one thing I’m not” he replies, and they continue driving across the Yukon Territory.
