Chapter 70The Vaults of Dunara: A Dead EndCarter's POV:
"Why don't we split up? We can find the secret vault fast if we split together." suggested Lyzzan.
"Wait, W-what? No! We can't. How can we protect each other if we separate !?" I asked out of confusion.
"Well, I think it's a great Idea to split up. I agree with Lyz." Lylan replied.
"Are you kidding me?! We need each other alive. Don't you get what I'm saying?!" I complained.
"Okay, so you, Krystelle and Amarra should go in this path, while Lyzzan and I will take this path. Deal?" Lylan proposed an Idea.
"What deal?! Are you even guys listening to me?!" My voice went up and because of that the echoes of mine that were bouncing around the room made the ceiling from the cave to shake.
Only a small portion and chunks of ice spikes and calcites to fell down to us so it wouldn't be much enough to hurt us.
And guess what? I finally got their attention out of
Chapter 71PuzzleCarter's POV: Our eyes wandered around and only a large concave wall exposed us. It was rocky and bumpy but still full of sharp rocks. "Come here, I found something ..." Amarra scooped her hands in the air, a gesture call, meaning to come at where she is standing. "So, what have we got here, Amarra?" I asked and I just held on to both my waist. "What do you think about this colorful but weird buttons, switches and dials on the wall? And how about this lever? What does this do? And this hole below the controls? What's this?" Amarra asked one question after another as he pointed out one by one what was built into the wall because he was so curious about them. And it's some sort of like a control swtich. Amarra was about to turn the dials, buttons, knobs, and levers that were made of stone, we immediately stopped him and when maybe one wrong click on one of these buttons, a trap might trigger. "Stop! Yo
Chapter 72The Wrong LeverCarter's POV: What Amarra was supposed to say was interrupted when I contradicted her by requesting "Just say it again. Please." Amarra sighed in frustration. "Fine. We can see the reflection of ourselves through the mirror but we cannot touch our reflection. Through light, reflection can bounce through diverse directions by the use of the mirror and-" "Okay stop!" I suddenly stopped him. I and Krystelle both gasped. We looked at each other, like a sign of unified thought. "Through Light! Reflection can bounce through diverse by the use of the mirror!" We were joyously exclaiming as we spoke together. "That's it! The answer is light! We can clearly see it but we cannot touch it. It can bounce through diverse directions because light can be reflected! And it doesn't make a sound! We answered the riddle! Yay!" Krystelle and I high-fived and I jumped from too much excitement then hugged.<
Chapter 73The Guardian BeastCarter's POV: "No one can hear us here! You haven't thought about it yet?! I want to hit you in the face, seriously!" Amarra let Krystelle remind us that our voices cannot reach the outside of this room and that the rushing flood of water that was already at our waist was even louder when the three of us shouted. I suddenly thought of an Idea that would bring Krystelle in a conscious state. The water overflowed quickly because apart from the stone pillar mermaid, the other three stone carved pillars also spewed water so instead of stepping on the ground below we couldn't do it because the water lifted us up to the ceiling and we started to float and swim like a frog. But we have not yet reached the top of the cave. It was only halfway through before we reached the top of the Cave. "Hey, Krys! Instead of whining like a lunatic brat that seemd like to escape from the assylum, why not use your powers to break this wall
Chapter 74Proving your WorthThird POV: The Giant Stone golem's empty eyes that were filled with darkness suddenly glistering with fire inside. It suddenly unleashed its power. It blazed with intense fire all over his body which made the remaining water boil from the place and evaporate fast, turning into steam. It was a sudden increase in temperature as the Stone Golem roared louder than a lion, and scarier than a dinosaur. The Giant was in great fury knowing that we were about to take the most possessed treasure that the Stone golem's trying to protect - Which is the forbidden book. I was terrified, knowing by the fact us three alone couldn't stand a chance with this stone giant. Krystelle summoned her vines from under the ground to strangle the giant stone golem. It spare Carter some time to steal the forbidden book from where it was placed but the stone giant had its eyes over it protecting it at all cost and had great amount of p
Chapter 75So Close and yet so FarThird POV: Flashback Ricky enthusiastically started summarizing every single detail they went through. After they were swooped by the Griffins, they met Amarra. She wanted to take them back to where they were taken but they found out her hometown was sabotaged by then elven bandits. That is where Ricky and Sandra were kidnapped by Princess Nimue - The shadow princess. Luckily they managed to escape from the hands of the evil princess. Three little identical dwarves went to chase Ricky and Sandra. Unfortunately they failed to catch them. After that, that was where then they got lost into the dark woods and found Lincoln. They were dumbfounded and got confused how did he end up in the realm of Encrest without having any memories of the past. The three of them were clueless about the idea but then agreed to find out the answers and search for Carter if they work together. Later
Chapter 76Siblings ReunionCarter's POV: "You have no idea how we've been through! It was a wild goose chase!" Ricky sighed after ending his story about their journey. "Wow! I can't believe I finally found you, both of you! I was so worried, thinking that maybe you two are gone for good!" "More of like, we found you too!" opposed Sandra. "No! More like we found us!" Ricky exclaimed. The three of us hugged again. It also took a long time before we could see each other again, I could hardly let go of my arms to them. I don't want them to be separated from me again. Never. I will protect them at all cost, even if it cost my life.I love my siblings so much, more than anything. Even though I am not related to them, they mean a lot to me and I value them so much. Especially Mom of course, the only lady in the world who
Chapter 77A Fatal ReliefCarter's POV: "Run ...!" Lylan shouted. We all followed what Lylan told us to do and we ran towards the exit but Lyzzan stopped us. "Why run? But we can escape through this portal?"suggested Lyzzan. Shaking with trepdiation, we did nothing but enter the portal one by one.I was the last to enter. I was waiting for the crystal to hit on my Grimoire. Since it was a crystal I got from Gwendala, no doubt this crytal shard is important and I can't leave it all stuck on the stone golem's forehead.I have a strong feeling I might still use this in the future so I waited for it. "Carter! What are you waiting for?! The place is crumbling! You have to hurry! And I can't keep my portal open for long! I'm almost at my limit!" Lyzzan shouted
Chapter 78The Final Chapter: Everything you see ain't always what it seemsCarter's POV: The stranger slowly walked towards my direction and pointed his index finger with his long sharp nail on my chest while saying "Who are you beings, you mean? Young one. Let me just remind you, we are not from Earth." I just looked at the old man's long nails and at my chest, A little faint of spark suddenly appeared from my chest. I felt a little tingles. Something was forming and activating from my chest.A hollographic crystal was coming out of me. I felt my chest expanding and I felt like my energies are being sucked away. I fell down on my knees, as my strength was slowly decreasing. Because of that, I just fell to the ground. I could no longer stand and get up.Just like I felt when I removed my amulet. "Your body has absorbed the powe
