In the peaceful forest of Kilicka ruled by king Cobra, a threat was forming by a wizard
|King Cobra And The Wizard’s Threat
In the forest of Kilicka lived a respected snake king known as king Cobra. He was feared and loved by many of the creatures in the forest. Legend told of him battling a bear and a tiger and winning the fight after days of fighting and hunting one another. Some of the creatures even make up story of him killing a dragon by strangling him to death with his strong massive body. King Cobra was an honest king, and had set rules that were not to be broken. He would always send his soldiers to aid anyone that needs help, even other creatures that were not part of his kingdom. Therefore he was known far and wide and gain lots of royal friends. The lion king also respected him and also offer his protection to his dominion. Every thing was peaceful until one day news was rushed to King cobra that some Shamans was on their way to Kilicka forest sent by a wizard minotaur, who wanted supremacy power over all the animal kingdoms. They are far away and will be here in about two weeks he was told. “And who gave you this news”, asked king Cobra. “It was given by Swift Beak, the flying messenger sir”. King Cobra was annoyed. He had heard stories of this wizard and how he practices all sort of magic. He was a brute and had no fear or conscience of another life. He would even use his own men to practice his magic on and usually the participant ends up dead. King Cobra asked everyone to leave him so he can think in quietness of a way to stop this wizard. King Cobra paced back and forth thinking of a way he can destroy this wizard once and for all. He had not met him personally but if he wanted supremacy over the animal kingdom then he has to be up to no good. I wonder If Tomi got the news, he thought. Tomi was the lion king who offered him protection. This threat was a big problem to him so of course it would be an even bigger threat to Tomi. King Cobra called for Leo who was one of the officials in charge of his army. “I want you to send news to Tomi and ask him if he heard the news of the wizard, and tell him I would like to speak with him on this matter urgently”. “Yes your majesty, I will send the news right away”. Leo rushed out and called for L-cheetah, who was one of the fastest messengers other than Swift beak. He would have sent swift beak but he was sent to spy on the shamans to see how close they were getting. “I need you to deliver this message to Tomi as soon as possible, tell him the king has gotten a threat from the wizard about wanting supremacy over the animal kingdom and that king Cobra would like to meet with him urgently on this matter”. “Aye, Aye captain, you know you can count on me”, said cheetah, and he was out of sight in a matter of seconds. News about the wizard was beginning to spread quickly and the citizens were beginning to feel frighten. A lot of talk was going around that king Cobra would protect his domain and that the wizard had no idea what he was up against. And others were saying that the wizard is a big threat and even king Cobra may not be able to defeat him with help. So there was a lot of commotion going on in the forest and a lot of the animals felt threatened by it.
El- Cheetah's Journey
el cheetah was sprinting northward toward the mountain where the lion king lives, excited and worried about the wizards threat at the same time. The lion king lived in a cave on top of the mountain on the northern part of the mountain surrounded by three different waterfalls. There were many different animals and various trees that grew on that side of the forest and most of the other animals would take their families there on trips because the scenery there was very beautiful. The trip there was two hours and twenty five minutes and el-cheetah was running top speed, jumping over logs and water streams as he headed northward towards the mountain where Tomi lived. All of a sudden he heard a scream and he stopped. He looked around him the sky was shining bright and there were a lot of birds just flying about in the sky. He heard the scream again coming from behind him, he went back and took a left into some tall grass and up ahead he saw a monkey known as the spider monk laying on the ground and couldn't move. what happened asked cheetah, are you ok? i've had better days said spider monk i was jumping from limb to limb on this tree here and somehow when i went to jump to another branch, its like everything went blank and i couldn't see anything and i completely miss the branch and fell. That's weird said cheetah, has this happened before he asked. No if it hadn't happen to me i would not believe what i experienced. Its almost like some sort of magic trick. Thoughts of the Wizards magic crossed el cheetah's mind and he wondered if it had anything to do with what spider monk experience. "glad your not really hurt, i have got a message to deliver of utmost importance, try not to fall off trees will ya, el cheetah said jokingly. " yes sir, spider monk replied and bowed smiling, he was use to a great sense of humor. El-cheetah sped full speed toward the mountain wondering if the Wizards magic had already reached this part of the forest. As he was pondering and running at the seem time, he went to jump over a log and fell into a hole. El-cheetah landed at the bottom of a dark pit. He looked up where he fell from but there was nothing to see but darkness. He closed his eyes for like ten seconds then re opened them. His eyes was adjusting to the dark a little. He looked around and saw what looked like three different tunnels leading to different places? His heart was beating faster as he began to adjust to the darkness, he looked around and saw skeletal corpses hanging from the walls. El-cheetah trembled as he looked around, was he in the pit of the dead and living bones. This was a story he had heard Leo telling some of the other animals in the kingdom, and always wondered if their was any truth to his stories, and here he was actually living it. El-cheetah shuddered as the thought crossed his mind. He began to take slow steps forward listening attentively to any sound. A mouse scurried by his feet and vanished in the darkness. As he took a few steps toward the tunnel he saw like a wisp ahead of him floating toward the first tunnel like entrance. At the seem time he heard a noise behind. Suddenly the bones on the walls and the skeletal corpses was coming to life before his eyes. El-cheetah's heart started to pound as he ran forward and dodged one of the skeleton from behind that almost grabbed him. He ran towards the light that was coming from the first tunnel where the wisp was floating. He ran into the tunnel without any second thought he just wanted to get out of the cave. As he ran through the cave he heard weird sounds and scattering bones behind him. El-cheetah ran straight ahead breathing heavily as he ran into a wall and fell down. He got up squinted saw the path and dash forward. Behind him he heard voices echoing, and eerie laughter and singing in a scary whisper "run kitty run". El-cheetah kept running forward he saw daylight ahead and moved as fast as he can to get out. He darted what seem like a snowball that was thrown at him. what was that he thought as he raced out the cave opening. He looked back and there was nothing coming out from behind him. Outside it was bright, but the lights was coming from what looks like circle spheres attached all over the trees, el-cheetah stood there heart pounding as he looked around wondering if he was dreaming.
Meanwhile back at the palace king cobra was beginning to get a little worried. It has been over five hours now and cheetah had not returned. This was rare as he always counted on cheetah to deliver messages and he always do it with good speed and always goes beyond what he expects. King cobra called for Leo his commander in charge. "I need ears and some eyes to find out about el-cheetah's whereabouts, its' been hours now and he hasn't returned. And please keep this urgency on the low don't want to alarm everyone with all this commotion going on. "yes sir" replied Leo. Leo walked out just as swift-beak the messenger flew in. "what did you find out", king cobra asked swift-beak looking at him intently. "well for starters ain't i the swiftest and mightiest of all your messengers your highness", swift-beak replied dancing on the table and taking a bow. "swift-beak now is not the time", hissed king cobra annoyed. "I need information now, el-cheetah was sent out after you to deliver a message and haven't returned yet and its beginning to worry me". "Ahh the great el-cheetah, got lost in the wild like a child", swift-beak replied sarcastically, "well what do you know". At this king cobra yelled, "swift-beak I need the information you was sent to get now or u can give it later to eagle eye after i release you from 2 months in the cell below". Swift-beak swiftly came back to his senses. Eagle eye was the infamous eagle of all eagles. Everyone knew who he was and not dare ever want to get in any heated conversation with him. Eagle eye's fur color was the seem color as the lion kings. His skin was a lot tougher than other birds. He was swift and can fly higher than all the other birds and can withstand temperatures normal animals cant. Legends spoke of him traveling to the moon and back. A lot of the creatures didn't believe in this myth but no one would dare say. He had a zero tolerance for anything, but his insight was highly respected as he has a keen way of seeing things. But, at a price for the unfortunate. No one goes to him unless it was a dire situation of life and or death. "your highness sir, lets skip that part should we," swift-beak replied smiling, besides I got some good news sir. "I ventured out in the direction i first saw the group of shamans but upon arriving they were not there, I even landed and looked about where i first saw them sir, and there was nothing. "swift-beak, this does not make sense", king cobra answered. "Are you sure you have seen them while you were flying back from the high elf in Moonvale. Swift-beak quickly replayed when he first spotted them in his head. They were all fierce looking with red scarves around their neck. some of them were carrying daggers in their hands, others were wielding swords and staffs. They were pulling some sort of caravan with wooden wheels that was in the middle of their group, which he assumed was the shaman king. "Yes sir, i saw them in groups pulling the shaman king in a caravan on the path that leads to this forest your highness", swift-beak replied. "And not seeing them anymore is your good news asked king cobra, this is not good news Swift-beak, not if what you said about seeing them is true. We got to stay alert and continue scouting the vicinity of our forest for any signs of them. "Oh and Swiftbeak i need you to go quickly and see if u can get in contact with el cheetah, I sent him to deliver a message to tomi hours ago and he hasn't return yet. Leo probally sent another to go check on him but I need you to go also and see about his whereabouts". "Aye Aye sir", and with this he was out the window and in the air toward the northern mountain.
Jade was one of the soldiers that Leo has a lot of faith in, she was strong discipline and always working to improve herself in everything she do. When leo told her about el-cheetah not returning she was a little concern. El-cheetah and her were good friends and always kept their friendship on the low as to not start rumors or let others into their personal lives. They have always been there for each other during struggling times in the most effective way possible as being friends and letting others see it as just that. As she was pouncing over logs going in the direction towards the mountain where she was told that el-cheetah went, she ran into spider-monk who was sitting on a tree eating a fruit. "well well fancy to see you out and about jade to what do i owe the pleasure", he said bowing with a smirk on his face. " Im out looking for el-cheetah have you seen him by any chance", jade asked. "Is he in some type of trouble.. Jade did not reply, "I saw him earlier he ate a fruit with me said something about delivering a message and left in a hurry. "Thanks monk". Jade turned and left in a hurry towards the path she came. As she was running she wondered why el cheetah may have not return yet. Maybe king Tomi had him stay over night for dinner or something, she thought. She looked up and saw the sun was beginning to make its way slowly behind the mountain. She started to move faster as dawn was making its way into the fullness of the day as to say a new day is coming. She was half way there breathing steadily, staying focus and alert when all of a sudden she heard someone calling for help. She left the path and went to see who it was that needed help. The soft voice called for help again, she looked at where the voice was coming from and there she saw it. At first thought she was skeptical about seeing a cat that was bright red and white. she looked around and slowly walked toward the cat as she got up to it the cat winked and vanished. And all of a sudden she was surrounded by laughing voices, she tried to run but was frozen in place, not by fear but by the grasp of an unknown force. "well what do we have here, a leopard on a stroll?" "let me go! exclaimed Jade trying to break free. "Don't resist you will only make it worse my dear". "who are you, and why are you doing this to me", Jade ask being calm and remembering her training. "To everyone I am known as the Shaman king, my name will not be spoken by anyone who is not worthy of the cause", I am on a mission to take control of a certain domain in a certain forest and nothing can stop me", "you don't happen to know of Kilicka forest do you", and please for your sake speak the truth because i have ways of unveiling truths and....lets just say it hurts". "Please don't", replied jade. "what do you want". "Aww I love it when people say please, such manners goes a long way my dear", "you know what maybe ill make you one of my royal servants". "Never in a million years you horse poop", yelled Jade. "Love the spirit this one has, please take good care of her will you guards". And with this he did a gesture with his hand and a minotaur and shaman took her bound her and place here in the caravan.
