"Rambato, please! I'm still sleepy," I muttered as Rambato licked my face. I had been trying to get him off me for a while but he still didn't stop.
"Raaaaaamba!" he said happily and I had no choice but to wake up.
"Good morning to you too. You woke up so early. Look, my fellow Keepers are still sleeping well," I grumbled but got up.
Why was I separated from the others? Last night Toffer had thought it would be better to sleep if we had a soft bed, so Janet made beds out of a big cloud.
As I stood up I noticed the large tree in front of me. Gone were the twinkling fireflies. Only bare branches were left. It was sad to see the tree in the sunlight. It seemed like a painful event to watch when the brilliance of the world left you.
"Raaaaaamba!" Rambato said hesitantly, holding my leg.
I bent down and lifted him. I gave him a sweet smile as I placed him on my shoulder.
"I'm okay. You have nothing to worry about," I told him smilin
"Limwell? Jerome?" Words came out of my mouth as the dark smoke that had surrounded us disappeared little by little. What were they doing there? "How did you enter this world?" I wondered as they smiled at me. "Shouldn't we be the ones to ask you that? Why did you come here without even telling us? I thought we were best friends?" said Limwell seriously. "Are you still wondering? Because his new friends is bigger than ours. Eleven is much better than three. Quantity over quality," Jerome said smiling. "What are you talking about? You know you're my best friends. Answer my question. How did you get here?" I couldn't stop myself from shouting. I knew they had no power but I wanted to know how they entered Loowa's Kingdom. "Perhaps your friends have the same power as us," Don said. "There's something wrong with them, Zeke. I don't feel like they're on the same side," Vergel said and I was surprised. "They're not our opponent
"Hey, Lyka! Are you listening?" Toffer said, opening all the drawers he could find. "Huh? What's that?" she asked. "I've been talking to you for a while and you can't even answer me. What are you thinking about?" "Because I can't believe my vision. He suddenly entered my mind even though I wasn't using my powers," she answered anxiously. Lyka just leaned against the wall and sighed. "Didn't you say that your vision isn't wrong? So that might be right. Wait, what did you see?" Toffer asked, rummaging through the things he could see. They were in the kitchen of the Director's kingdom because their shoes brought them there. They were looking for any clue that they could use against the Director. "Blood," she replied. "What? Just blood? If it's just blood, why would you react like that?" Toffer asked. "The message of my vision was not clear because he suddenly came out of my mind. But I saw Zeke wrapped in his blood," Lyka said sta
Since I had woken up I could do nothing but receive blows from my two friends. I could feel the extreme weakness of my body because of the intense blows they were unleashing on me. "What Zeke, aren't you going to fight? Will you just stay there quietly?" Limwell said as he hit me in the face and body repeatedly. "Would he fight if his hand and foot were tied? Think about it," Jerome said just watching what his friend was doing. Jerome was right. Even if I wanted to fight, I couldn't because I was floating and tied up. Some kind of black energy was separating my hands and legs. My limp body was scratched all over. I didn't know how I got here but when I woke up, I looked like this. I was wearing no clothes except for my pants and I was bleeding all over. I felt my face sting when Limwell slapped me. "If you had told me before that your twin was the reason why my sister died, we wouldn'
I felt Kier's hands caressing my cheeks. He wiped away my tears. "Shhhhh. Don't cry. Isn't this what you wanted? To see me and be together again?" he asked, smiling. I was unable to answer him as I felt my legs and hands go numb. He'd untied me. The sensation came back to me slowly and I felt freedom temporarily. I gave Kier a tight hug as I fell into his arms. An embrace full of longing. "We finally met again," I said, uncontrollably in tears. Seeing him again was the happiest moment in the four years I had lost. I felt him caress my hair which surprised me. He did the way I used to do it to him all those years ago. "I'm back so we can be together again," he said letting go of my embrace. "Come with me, Kiel." he smiled. "Where? Can't you come back home to us?" "I will not come home to us. You will come with me. You will love the world I built for our brothers and sisters. There I will no longer kill and thirst for blo
"Take away the energy that binds them," I commanded and it surprised my twin and the Director. "Why? Isn't it easier for you to kill them if they are bound to my power? They have nothing against you because they can no longer use their power," the Director replied, almost shouting at me. "Whether they have power or not, they have nothing against us. Besides, I will not kill a creature that cannot fight back. I would prefer to see them fight until they pity themselves on the fact that they are alive," I said as I smiled and backed away from Ciara. The formerly weak and timid woman I had first met at the Medallions Hub was back. "I can't quite imagine that you would be even more brutal than me, Kiel. What you said made me even more impressed. I didn't make a mistake negotiating with the Director for our lives," my twin said as he smiled and hugged me. "We're twins, aren't we? We were born with a curse. And that curse bound the two of us toge
"Stand back!" said the Director looking seriously at Ronnie's unconscious body. "He's not the real Keeper!" he added, which surprised my twin. "What do you mean?" Kier asked, looking at Ronnie's severed head lying on the side of his body. Suddenly darkness enveloped the Director's eyes which caused Ronnie's body to disappear like a bubble. He then looked at the rest of the Keepers and in a flash, they all dissolved. "Arghh! Blasphemous! You're a traitor!" the Director screamed in anger and was in front of me in a flash. He strangled me so angrily that I smiled. "Where are they?" he asked and it made me smile more. "Was my show okay, Mr. Director?" I asked which intensified his anger even more. With the intensity of it, his aura gradually changed. It was even stronger than his usual power. "You made the mistake of pissing me off!" he said and his form suddenly changed
"What is it, hurry up! We're the only ones who aren't there," Limwell said to his friends."This it is, oh. Wait for me!" Jerome shouted as he chased after his friend.When he chased him, he put his arm around his friend and smiled."Zeke will be happy when he sees us in our graduation gowns," said Jerome who was adjusting his gown that was flying in the wind."That's for sure. The three of us dream to graduate and get our diploma!" Limwell replied as he gripped the stiff folder containing his diploma."I didn't expect us to graduate, we're just copying Zeke. Hahaha.""It only means one thing, the diploma we hold is for him not for us," Limwell laughed too."There they are!" said Jerome and ran towards the Keepers."Sorry, we're late," said Limwell looking at the Keepers wearing their graduation gowns."No worries. We just got here too," Toffer replied, smiling at them."Any last words for the Dark Mind?" Darwin s
