Chapter 4Red began gaining conciousness and he slowly opened up his eyes and saw a pair of crystal blue eyes gazing into his. He jumped back in surprise and fell off of the table onto the cold hard floor. He got up and took in his surroundings, he seemed to be in a room, with a candle and a women was standing over the table from which he fell off of.
"Hello, how are you feeling?", asked the strange women.
"Ok, I guess", replied Red, as he was getting up off the floor. "Where am I?"
"You are at the Kingdom of Elmoth, ruled by my father, Th00p. I am Desy, the princess of Elmoth."
"Wait, where is my friend, Dark?"
"Don't worry, he is down in the kitchens, eating all of the food he can find, Rufen is down there now, trying to contain him."
"Well, thank you so much Desy, for you kindness and hospitality, but I must be on my way, I am trying to stop Jonathan, and this war we are all in."
"That is very noble of you, but please, stay for a little longer, I wish to be in your presence a little longer. Come, let us go to the kitchens to join your friend to something to eat, you must be famished."
As they got down to the kitchens, they heard pots and pans clanging around, and Dark came running out of the room, with Rufen in his wake, flailing a pot at Dark and yelling to get out of his kitchen.
"Red, your awake finally, come and try some of the food here, it's amazing!", said Dark.
"Rufen, that's enough. Could you make some Eggs and Bacon for our guests here?", asked Desy.
"Chure ting m'lady.", said Rufen, and he turned and into the kitchen he went.
Red, Desy, and Dark went over to the tables and sat down to talk while their food was being made. They began small chat, and then a big man, someone who looked familiar to Red, came and sat down beside him,and slapped him on the back.
"Feeling better I see, eh young one?", said the man.
"Oh, this is Sir Leon, the man who brought you here.", said Desy, "He is my fathers best fighter."
"Yes, sorry about the bullet, you were in our firing range, and one of my shooters, Edyit, thought you were the dummy, and took a shot. Good thing he's not that good eh? Haha."
"Yeah.", replied Red, "Good thing. By the way, who was that girl lying in the woods?"
"A girl.... Oh, you mean the dummy, yes, that was one of our dummies you must have seen."
Rufen then entered with a big plate of Eggs and Canadian Bacon. Red and Dark started drooling at the sight of it, and as they began to eat, they were jolted up and out of their hypnotized hunger, as a horn began sounding.
"Up, lets go princess to your chambers, you two, come along! Now!", boomed Sir Leon as he pulled them out of their seats.
"Whats happening?", asked Dark.
"That horn means someones in the kingdom thats not supposed to be in here."
As they got to the princess' chamber, Sir Leon put them in there, checked the room, and closed the door and ran off.
Red saw his sword in the corner of the room and went over and grabbed it.
"I'm going out to help them, Dark, you stay here and look after the princess."
"Ok", said Desy, "But be careful, I don't want you to get hurt."
"I won't.", replied Red, and out he went.
Red went down the long hallway, and found Sir Leon.
"I'm helping you find this thing.", He said to Sir Leon.
"Ok, stay close with me, I don't want you getting hur...", said Sir Leon, but he droned off and fell to the ground.
Red looked down at him and saw a dart in the side of his neck. He heard laughing and looked down the hall and saw a man leaning against the wall, laughing at what he had done.
"Who are you?", asked Red.
"I am Scytale, part of the Memonites."
"What did you do to him?", asked Red, while looking around for help.
"Oh him? I just knocked him out for a few hours, hahaha, who are you?"
"I am Red, Son of Blue, and you and all your Memonites are going to fall under my sword."
"Hahaha, is that so young man, well, lets see how good you are then."
He took out a Tulwar, and got ready to fight. Red took out his Katana and got in his fighting stance. Scytale started running towards Red, and Red began to run at his opponent, and their swords clashed in the middle, they began dualing, swords flying at eachother.
Red tripped on a stone, and slipped for a second, and Scytale, seeing his chance, went in close to Red to get a good stab in. Red, regaining his balance quickly saw scytale coming in close, and saw his chance. He side-stepped quickl and dodged the stab, and with that Scytale exposed his shoulder to Red's sword, and Red, with all his might, thrust his mighty weapon, deep into the flesh of Scytales shoulder.
Scytale stood still for a moment, shocked by this sudden blow, and then his eye's glazed over, and he slowly fell to the ground.
