Chapter_14: Return of the Swanmay

There was definitely something different there over the Bermuda Island, and they could see it as they were getting closer to there.

They were flying towards the North detection, Dr.Robert Niles was watching and comparing the round sextant and the compass to locate the crystal, General Kay kept his eyes observing outside of the aircraft, he saw the ground covered with endless ice and snows, showing a slightly yellow in the sunlight, but it was strange to disperse into a linear shape, also disclosed the bribe micro-red and purple.

Continue north over the mountains, they saw a green valley, a small stream valley had left scattered on the slopes of dense forest. The light was very strange because it did not see the sun.

When the ground tended to be more flat, they found that as many buildings and constructions exist, seem to have strange aircraft in the air buoyancy.

Then the aircraft's engine stopped running, slight vibration in the aircraft landed safely, as if by an invisible lift support.

Phenice came to whisper:" Turn off the sextant, they find us. We don't want them to know that we were tracing your lost crystal to be here."

The aircraft was headed and landed itself into a splendid city. City seemed to be built with the black crystal formed.

James Maurlias stepped out to the ground, he seemed to be familiar to the buildings and  the entry. Hermit Sun holding the baby in his arms followed next, Amy Sun and Phenice stayed close to him and the baby.

Dr.Robert Niles And Debra Niles followed, General Kay asked his staff stay in the craft, stepped out to be the final person out of the craft.

"Welcome to New Ravenloft, Kingdom of Dark Queen Siebenburgen." Werewolf Ambrose Maurlias and his Musketeer team greeted in front of castle.

"Where is Olivia?" James Maurlias walked into the castle leading ahead:" We come to pick her up."

The castle was built in modern material, still very similar to the old time frame and specifications.

"Well well well," Ambrose Maurlias stepped to walk with him:" Back to the good old time, aren't we?"

"Where? is Olivia?" James Maurlias asked again.

"Back to where she belong." Ambrose pointed to James's back of hand and arm:" Same way as you are."

James looked at his arm, he was surprised to find the long wolf hair was growing over the back of his hand and arm, and increasingly the more dense:" You put Olivia in the old water?! You do know that she was a Swanmay, but upon entering Ravenloft, she would gain the ability to shape into a mermaid.  When she becomes submerged in water, or drenching wet through any other means, she becomes a mermaid. So, what happened to her now?!"

"That, would depend on which boat she choose for herself." Ambrose answered.

"Where is that boat?!" Phenice asked.

"Along the Swanlake," Ambrose smiled to her:" If you are looking for the boat to regain your true self back, you shall chose one for flying bird, not swimming."

"What make you think I come here for more a boat, than to rescue my friend!"

"Because you asked for the boat, and I see you are some big bird out from the burning flames." Ambrose answered:" Olivia is more of my fiancée, than of your friend, you don't need to rescue her."

"She is not your fiancee anymore," James stepped toward to the Swanlake:" We escaped from Ravenloft long time ago!"

Ambrose pointed to James's wolf hairs growing on his long' pointed ears:" As soon as you are back to Ravenloft, you grow back to what you used to be."

They stopped at a beautiful lake, and there were so many biremes  moored at the shore of lake. The Brigantine had two masts with two sails rigged to each mast. The Schooner had a narrow hull and two masts. The Frigate had three masts, a raised forecastle, and a quarterdeck.  The Carrack had three masts sticking up from the deck.

All the sails were bulging by wind, ready to go. James was emotional impulses, it was the same winds and waters, they escaped by a boat in last manasarovar, now he returned to visit, and there were already lots of boats along the lake.

Phenice seemed more anxious to chose a boat to take, General Kay paused her:" I don't think it's for earthlings." then he saw Vampire Zsolt stood aside with some more Vampires and Vampyrias in front of them.

Zsolt nodded and smiled to him: "This is a 5th dimension zone, I don't think you immortals are able to get aboard on these boats in your 3 dimension flesh and body."

He smiled to everybody:" Step forward, come to our 5th dimensions world."

General Kay' Dr.Robert and Debra Niles stepped backward, but Phenice didn't move, Zsolt said:" Aren't you getting tire of your limited 3 dimensions already?! You can not even see your own face! You see only your hands and legs. Don't you always want to see a complete picture of yourself fit in this world?"

Phenice asked:" What's in 4th dimension?"

"Time zone, you get to see your past' current and future. You will be moving in a globe, not a linear one way street anymore"

"Then what's in 5th dimension?"

"A bigger globe, you see everybody's past' current and future."

General Kay interrupted:" Meaning, we died as a ghost? or a living zombie like you?!"

Zsolt opened his arms:" We are not zombie."

Green Knight Avalon flew in and showed his sword to Zsolt:" Don't let him vampirize your blood."

Vampire Avalon flew in and stood himself behind the vampires and vampyrias.

Green Knight Avalon pointed his sword to Vampire Avalon:" This is what happened after he got your blood!"

All the vampires and Werewolf Musketeers took out their weapons and aimed for a battle about to start.

James Maurlias raised hand to stop the battle, his hands were growing full of wolf hairs, he gave in to Werewolf Ambrose Maurlias:" I don't come here to fight, you tell me which boat is for Olivia's island and I'll be on it."

Werewolf Ambrose pointed to a huge Frigate with wolf's flag and sign.

There came Empress Tyra's voice to interrupt him:" But it's the ship to the Island of mermaid, not Swanlake. Could you tell me, where is my little girl Katrina?"

Empress Tyra appeared riding on Repas Elephant, with all the football player ghosts were embraced and followed around, riding on all kind of animal mounts: gorillas, boars, lions, bears, gazelles, zebras, giraffes, and Hippopotamus, carrying all kinds of gun and weapons.

Werewolf Ambrose pointed to the wolf Frigate :" We arranged a party over there, come to join us."

Hermit Sun shook his palm:" They won't keep all the hostages in one place, don't fall for it."

James Maurlias hold up his palm:" It's the party for Olivia and me only, please don't follow me!" He jumped into the carrack.

Phenice jumped in with no hesitate. Amy Sun followed.

Hermit Sun signed, he tied up the baby in his arm, didn't want the people seeing that she can flew without her Iron-Fan , so he jumped in a little bit lame way.

Knowing that they were dealing with a enemy can hear their thoughts, Hermit Sun did not reveal out any thoughts.

So Dark Queen and Vampire Zsolt are winning all the way, they hold the hostages to get everybody jump into their trap. They should know that Shin Sun never have a twin brother named Hermit Sun, do they know that if they hold this baby they can actually get more than everything ?

General Kay signed, he turned to Robert and Debra Niles to  quickly make a glance, then he jumped into the wolf Frigate, very quickly, during the jump he pressed his watch and his watch blink once, nobody ever noticed the blink except Robert and Debra, they jumped into wolf Frigate too, also pressed quickly on their own wrist watches.

"Show me my Katrina," Africa Empress Tyra ordered:" or else I will turn your island stirred!"

Werewolf Ambrose gave order to the Frigate: "Set sail!" It's huge sails were bulging immediately without wind and quickly navigated away.

All the Werewolf Musketeers had also boarded the Schooner, another giant ship. While it set sail to follow the Frigate, Werewolf Ambrose bowed and tributed to the Africa Empress Tyra: "Her Excellency, Make yourself home. This is not an island, it's night Kingdom under the jurisdiction of the Night Queen."

Over the Frigate which was sailing to the west, Vampire Zsolt flew to the deck and greeted to everybody:" Welcome aboard. My friends."

"What do you want?!" James Maurlias asked.

"Maurlias," Zsolt grinned to him:" Don't fight! You shall get back to your good old Musketeer team already. I want nothing from you, but, I need two things from the ladies," He reached his palm to Amy Sun: "Ms.Sun, please hand over the crystal in your heart pocket."

Amy Sun didn't move at all, pretend that she doesn't have any pocket beneath her clothing:" Don't you have too much crystals in your castle walls and roofs already."

 

"You shall know, those gems grow on each other. Also, everybody is looking for the HEART crystal of the Veluriyam  Lantern, come on, let's see if you are the lucky girl who own the piece of the Lantern heart!"

"Whatever if I get any," Amy Sun answered:" You won't see it!"

Zsolt turned to Hermit Sun with a smile:" Princess Iron-Fan , please hand your baby girl to me. We all know that your are the only one can fight here. I need to warn you first, DON'T FIGHT! or you may hurt your baby daughter! Remember what happened to her brother when the monkey was stupid enough to fight with a baby in his arms?!"

Hermit Sun was mad and shaking in anguish, immediately he changed into Princess Iron-Fan still holding the baby, stared with mad eyes.

"You have changed back to your original shape, So you can have full magic capacity to deal with me? Let me remind you once again, Remember what happened to her brother when the monkey was stupid enough to fight with a baby in his arms?!"

Princess Iron-Fan raised her empty hand to drag a thunder in the far sky, she made the lightings sparkling and flash, but she made the thunder far and deep, because she didn't want to wake her baby:" Get any step closer, then you will be a scorched bat!"

Vampire Zsolt could not care less: "Hey, look, the sky got a good round moon."

It's full moon in the sky, and all the bats' Vampires and Vampyrias were flying to the deck.

Then there was the Schooner sailed in to clutch the Frigate, it's full ship of werewolves in the Schooner.

Zsolt proposed:" What you'd say if we collect the Tài-Yǐ crystals and rebuild the Veluriyam lantern, then we rule the earth from here?"

"I don't call blood-sucking 'rule the earth'." Iron-Fan Princess answered:" Just let go our Olivia and Katrina, we'll leave peaceful."

"They belong here," Zsolt said:" You all need to stay too."

Phenice pulled out a pistol pointed at him: ” I think you are wrong assessed the situation. Her effort is only to protect her daughter as long as like. Each of us can deal with you."


Vampire Zsolt was surprised to see that every individual pulling out a pistol aimed at him, Amy' Debra' Robert' James.

And the pistols in their hands are all of exactly the same type with General Kay's.

Princess Iron-Fan raised her empty hand dragged more and more thunders roaring in the far sky, also she made more lightings flash, but she made the thunder far and deep, because she didn't want to wake her baby:" Listen to the angry mother roar!"

"It's 9 and half dimensions here, all the fantasy islands are only inches away from our thoughts, do you see your Flame Mountain there?! The red land aside the brown Volcano!" Zsolt pointed to the red and brown lands along the cape horizon:" I think Ox-King hear you now, one more flash lighting then he will come to join you."

There was a foggy hurricane rolling up out of thin air, surging and growing, instantly cover up the half sky. Zsolt gazed at the sky and smiled: "Mother Nature strike back, look what your thunder attracted!" he flew out of the deck, jumped out of the Frigate, the Vampires followed him.

The surging hurricane wasn't no storm or winds, it's actually billions of bees colony flying and laden with thunderous buzz, scrolling up and waving like influx of tsunami.

All the Vampires and Vampyrias flew to the Werewolf Schooner and sailed away in speed.

The frigate was going nowhere to avoid the attacks of the bees tsunami, it's bulging sails kept the frigate going in it's own mind, there was no winds blowing over the sea.

Everybody looked at Iron-Fan Princess since she was the only one with super power to move the frigate. Iron-Fan Princess kept on trying with only one hand available in vain, she couldn't move the frigate since she and her baby girl were in the boat, she could not even prevent some bees kept flying up to her baby's hair and face:" I can't do much thing, not without my Iron-Fan!..."

Ever since 20th century, there were already over 35 per cent or more of the United States' population of the Western honey bee (Apis mellifera) - billions of individual bees - simply flew from their hive homes and disappeared.

 

Dinosaurs were moved into some certain and half dimensions so the human beings got the whole earth for their living space, but those bees disappeared with their trivial body size.

 

Where had all the flowers and fruits gone since our bees were disappearing? The farmers and gardeners lost billions of agricultural products to make living, to support the earthlings.

 

Now they were all here, the Apis mellifera bees, all over the sky and ocean.

"Stay calm and let them go, don't let any bee sting, or else you will get more aculeus from their groups." Iron-Fan Princess said it very calmly, covered up her baby's face with her palm.

The millions of bees flying up and over, and all the bees stayed when they hit the sails or anybody. For the first time is his live, James Maurlias was glad that he had wolf hairs grown over his body, but he still need to close his eyes and covered his face.

The bee colony dropped like rains to the sails and masts, they scurried everywhere on the frigate, when there were tons of buzz and wings flying all over from the sky. The frigate was tilting and about to sink.

 

Phenice could hardly has her eyes open, all of sudden she felt a strong wind blowing over, blew away layers of bees from her face and hairs. She was so released, and the winds blew again.

"Hold on and be still!" Shin Sun yelled in the mid-air, he seemed didn't learn how to use the palm-leaf fan, the big winds he fan out of Iron-Fan made himself unable to float stable, he was spilled out and flipped flop a few somersaults until he found himself back the direction.

Iron-Fan Princess studied the magic mantras, remotely changed the Iron-Fan in Shin Sun's hand become large enough to distracte half of the frigate:" Fan it again! It's OK to be flipping somersault," she smiled:" It's actually the advance skill, glad you can learn it as a beginner."

Shin Sun took a deep breath then struck the fan, immediately the fan created a hurricane and the winds sweep across the sky, he heard Princess Iron-Fan was talking into his mind: Aim it to the bee colony, don't blow to the frigate.

He fanned again, he was very well-learn now, he sweep away a huge load of bee colony then he flipped himself into a somersault in the mid-air, then he threw another fan, most of the bee colony were gone.

Everybody in the frigate were cheerful waving, Princess Iron-Fan spoke to his mind: Now aim it to our ship and blow us away from  those bees.

As soon as the bee colony was left behind, the frigate stuck and paused, he could not fan to blow it moving any further.

 

General Kay Came to the deck and watched the waters below.

Debra and Robert Niles yelled to mid-air:" Shin, we are sailing into the fish pool!"

Below the ship, there were full of fishes in the water. There were more fishes than the water, some fishes were jumping out the water. The traffic of fishes was flowing, but the frigate was stuck.

Ever since 21st century, there were one river after another has been closed to fishing because significant numbers of fish failed to return to spawn. Fishermen used to get between $5 million and $10 million from the fishery. Now they made less than $1.1 million.

Where were those fishes go?

Now there were all here!

Shin Sun heard Princess Iron-Fan was talking directly to his mind: Fan harder, aim it to the frigate this time, see if you can make a hurricane much smaller only to lift the frigate into the sky and get us out of those fishes jam.

Shin Sun shook his head: Including your baby girl, they are all human mortals in the ship, nobody can survive this kind of shaking and dropping.

He asked: And which way shall we go?! How do we know these bees are not coming back?

Then they heard a beautiful voice singing, from the other side of sky and the boundless sea. Bringing the moonlight, the tide rose from the fluctuation, that was a wonderful song in the air. As if from the horizon, as if from the sea, also seemed to have come from heart. Seemed strange, it seemed familiar, as if it has blurred.

They saw a mermaid to ride in porpoise's carrying on the back, her singing sound was such persuasiveness and graceful, it calmed down the wild angry sea. Several stars jumped out their track crazily, to listen to this sea immortal singing.

James Maurlias run to the cutwater on the fore, hold on to the figurehead and yelled:" Olivia! "

Shin Sun tried to fly forward, Amy Sun stopped him:" You can't rescue her by yourself alone, fan us all to her."

The mermaid didn't turn her head to the frigate at all. Her long hairs were flowing over her shoulders, her slim stature in the air to draw a bright arc, sparkling tail fin to shoot little broken bits of water sparkle, her porpoise jumped a light leap, somersaulted in the sea from the soft white fragrant.
 

General Kay pressed the transmitter button in his wrist watch.

"Princess," James begged:" Please get her come to us, so we can take her leave here."

"She knew both of you are here!" Princess Iron-Fan answered:" Can't you see what she is doing right now?!"

"No!" Both Shin and James said.

"That she is happy, that she has totally forgotten about you!"

The mermaid gently leaped into the water, her blue fins pulled out some white flower transparent waves. The corals and the algaes were swaying  her waist dissolutely from side to side. The sharks shuttled back and forth in the near-by.

"She was never happy there," James Maurlias said:"  Ambrose Maurlias took her out of the sea obscurity so her lamella wouldn't be lacerated. Siebenburgen transformed her into the Swanmay so she could stand on the ground. Then I helped her to escape from the werewolves. "

"Siebenburgen?" Phenice asked.

"The Dark Queen, " James said:" I think she still keeps her form in Black Swan."

Phenice frowned:" She can't leave here unless Siebenburgen transformed her into Swanmay again."

"Princess," Shin Sun flew in and handed in the Iron-Fan:" Please use your fan to get Olivia here so we can leave here."

 

Princess holding her baby girl and shook head:" My hands are tied, and she won't leave with us anyway."

 

Shin Sun flew up and struck the Fan really hard, a lots of fishes were bombed out but the frigate wasn't moving, shaking in stead.

Shin struck the Fan again and again, the fishes below the water were bombed out and the frigate was convulsive shaking to almost sink, Princess crossed her arm on her baby and said:" I will get my Fan back if you dare to shake this boat again!"

All of sudden, a giant white dragon dropped into the ocean from the sky. Monkey King and Ghost Argus landed on the deck of the frigate.

The giant dragon rolled out it's body and billowed the enormous whirls, bombed away a staggering amount of fish. Then he propped up the whole hull of the frigate carried and moved forward.

The frigate was tilted shaking, almost capsized, but Monkey King elongated his Golden Cudgel and keep the hull stable.

The fishes were bombed away in bulk, the frigate was moving forward until there was no more fish but water.

Monkey King brought James together to fly away in his Tumble Cloud, Shin Sun flew to follow in Iron-Fan.

As soon as the frigate moved ashore on an island, Robert and Debra's wrist watches were flashing, they pressed the buttons. Robert Niles took out his pistol:" Guard it for them, our aircraft is coming!"

White Dragon smiled and jumped out, he decided to search for Mermaid Olivia in the ocean.

Vampire Avalon dropped behind him out of blue and grabbed his pistol away:" Freeze!" He pushed Robert forward and grabbed Debra and aimed Robert's pistol to her head.

General Kay' Amy Sun and Phenice stepped backward with their arms opened and surrendered.

Robert looked up and hoped that the aircraft should be coming in time, but there were lots of vampires and vampyrias flew in from the full moon sky.

Zsolt smiled:" Good job! Avalon."

Green Knight Avalon dropped in and yelled in anguish:" Avalon, take this!" He thrust his sword to Vampire Avalon.

Princess Iron-Fan flew herself holding her baby girl away from the pistol and sword, she also dragged in a lots of flash lightings.

The lightings lighten up the night sky, also cut everyone's sights into panic and disorder.

Monkey King looked back to the frigate left behind, he was amazed that so many of lightings lighten up the sky, he saw no trace of Mermaid Olivia, but they saw the Schooner moored at the shore.

They dropped into the Schooner, Werewolf Ambrose Maurlias stood in the center of the deck, surrounded by all of his Musketeers. Each musketeer was equipped with the muskete holding in arm, long sword and short rapier in belt.

Mermaid Olivia was sitting in a big bench with a tub full of waters.

Nobody moved, Everybody were waiting and expecting them to drop in.

James and Shin Sun tried to reach Olivia, but the werewolf Musketeers stopped them.

Ambrose Maurlias smiled:" Welcome back, Vespasien  Maurlias."

 

James Maurlias shook head:" My name is James. I'm not coming back. I'm here to take Olivia home."

"Olivia? You mean 'Angelina'!" Ambrose Maurlias showed his hand to Mermaid Olivia:" You need to ask her if she want to leave here with you!"

"Olivia," James said loudly to Mermaid Olivia:" Let's go home, we have some super-spirits friends, they can transform you to get rid of your mermaid tail and fins right away."

Mermaid Olivia shook her head:" I'm not leaving. I will stay here forever."

Shin Sun tried very hard to get her attention, but she always lower her eyes, no expressions, never got contact with anybody's eyes.

James pointed to Ambrose Maurlias's weapons:" Last year we left in a hurry, I owed you a duel to settle our disagreement.  Let's fight two duels in one today, if I win, me and Olivia are leaving, you win. you do anything you want to me."

Werewolf Ambrose hinted the vice-chief to disrobe his belt with the sword and rapier to James Maurlias:" I win, you need to stay with your original name and position in the musketeers. If you win, you can leave, I don't think Olivia is going to leave anywhere."

 

James was thrusting the sword and slid it into air, it's been a long time since he gave up the swordplay. When he pulled out the rapier and checked out it's ring and the metal guards of elaborate crosses perpendicular to the blade, he started to realize that Ambrose should be surely win already, these weapons were exactly the same blades he used, and Ambrose, used to supervise and train them for the swordplay!

Then he heard Shin Sun was talking inside of his eardrum: Use the long Sword as a short Rapier!

He looked at Shin, who's  mouth was closed, but he could see that he was teleporting his thoughts to him: You won't have much odds to win anyway, but it will confuse Ambrose, he won't be able to beat you soon as usual, and you will be able get more chance to find his flaw and beat him.

Shin was staring at him very firmly: Don't distract yourself on Olivia's, I will surely rescue her whenever I see the chance.

Werewolf Ambrose raised his sword:" Do you know why Angelina decide to stay here this time?! Because I showed her our kid, so she promised that she won't abandon her child anymore."

Their sword tips were clicked, the duel was supposed to be started, but Ambrose still talking detestably:" She was carrying my child, so I begged Dark Queen to transform her into Swanmay, and you?! you got her eloped from the Shadow-Rift!"

James was in shock:" But you told her that the child die!"

"Dark Queen wanted me not to tell until the transform go through well!" Ambrose thrust his sword, James was still startled that he forgot which arms to use.

"The sword, right hand!" Monkey King yelled... ...

 

The gunshots rang, everybody pulled out their pistols to fight the Vampires, but General Kay and Princess Iron-Fan were losing their battle.

The Vampires and Vampyrias were everywhere to attack, they were hiding and battling behind the rocks and big trees.

And it's all due to Vampire Avalon, he was agile shuttling and haunting, like a flying eagle.

Green Knight Avalon was following him all the time, he always jump in and cut down his sword, and Vampire Avalon always jump out of the flashing blade.

Next moment he attacked Amy Sun and Debra Niles, grabbed over their pistols, they had to run to Princess Iron-Fan and hide behind her flash lightings.

With two pistols in his hands, Vampire Avalon became more fatal and offensive, anybody could be his next victim.

Phenice had sense that a Vampire was around, she shoot a shaking a brush and caught Vampire Avalon behind the tree.

While Vampire Avalon tried to over-power with his two pistols to continuing shooting against Phenice's one pistol, Green Knight Avalon jumped in very silently and chop down his sword.

Vampire Avalon dropped died, and Green Knight Avalon was fallen down at the same moment. They both fainted and unable to breath or open their eyes.

Vampire Zsolt flew in to pick up Vampire Avalon, he teleported his zombie power to cure Vampire Avalon's bloody wounds, when Vampire Avalon opened his eyes, Zsolt grinded his teeth to Green Knight:" You two are sharing the spirits' soul and mind! You kill him, you kill yourself!"

Phenice aimed her pistol to nothing, didn't know if she shall shoot any bullet.

Then they heard the propeller sounds, the aircraft was coming... ...

 

James thrust his sword in right hand and slid the rapier in left hand, Werewolf Ambrose blocked off the sword and cut by the rapier.

Some Werewolf musketeers forwarded to  Ambrose, Shin Sun flew above to reach Mermaid Olivia and grabbed her up to his flying Iron-Fan, then he found out that he really didn't have much physical strength to carry a flesh mermaid body. 

He yelled for help:" Monkey King..." but lots of musketeers had already  crowded over Mermaid Olivia.

White Dragon jumped in and grabbed Mermaid Olivia, he also knock out and kick down all the musketeers around him.

Monkey King picked up James on his Tumble Cloud and flew to carry Mermaid Olivia and White Dragon:" Let's go! Shin!"

 

Both the Tumbler Cloud and Iron-Fan flew up and away.

When they landed on the island, they was an aircraft over there, Princess Iron-Fan' General Kay and everybody were fighting the Vampires and Vampyrias for who shall in charge of the aircraft.

Everybody was fighting, except Green Knight Avalon and Vampire Avalon, they were just staring to each other.

It was such a pleasure fight to do, Monkey King and White Dragon refused to give away this opportunity to each other, they were vying for knocking down every vampires and Vampyrias in their sights. They kicked and fisted each Vampire like dry wood or punk, immediately all Vampires were sitting on the ground and wining, and they were still looking around, hope to see if there will be any more Vampire stand up to fight them.

"Let's go home if there is no more game here." Monkey King didn't feel satisfied, it was such a trivial fight, he didn't even move his thumb.

"Wait." Vampire Zsolt was upset seeing all of his people knocked down, but he tried to be polite in anguish:" You can't leave Shadow-Rift without call on Dark Queen. This is her Kingdom."

"Why not?!" Monkey King raised his eyebrows:" Does she need a fight too?!"

Immediately they heard a beautiful voice said:" YES."

Monkey King was amazed:" Where are you? Show yourself."

There was elegant swanmay music, there were beautiful swanmay dancers performance, then Dark Queen Siebenburgen appeared, dressed in grace and luxury.

Her long gown featured a crushed velvet texture in pure black. A silky middle that extended to the floor. The angled waist featured a band of stylized silver under the form fitted bodice in black. She wore a black headband with a whimsical veil in midnight black.

Among her headband, also the neckline and attached scarf, there were lots of twinkling little star glitters blinking all over her.

"Stay, Shin Sun." She smiled:" This is not an end of the day. This is the beginning of your new day. New life, for you, and Angelina."

"Save it, Dark Queen," Shin Sun said:" I'm taking Olivia home, and we are going to use crystal to help her get the transform she want."

Princess Iron-Fan said:" There is one very important issue I need to clear up now! I have his The Primary Crystal ever since the beginning, since the Earthquake. And this Crystal, is not the Heart Crystal of the Veluriyam Lantern as you all wish, but it's another bigger Igniter Veluriyam than the one he used to build the Unihorn."

"Meaning..." She smiled to Dark Queen:" I got most of thunders and lightings from the sky, don't fight me! We just want to take Olivia home, peacefully."

"You are very welcome to join my Dark Land, "Dark Queen showed off and made her starry ornaments twinkle and blinking around her neckline and gown:"

You shall able to be help us find the Heart sooner."

"Friar Sand can do it the best, it's him broke the Veliriyam Lantern," Princess Iron-Fan watched Dark Queen's twinkle stars in appreciations:" But how do you make him willing to help you?!"

"I'm here!" Friar Sand appeared under the moon:" Where do you keep my little niece Katrina?!"

"Welcome, to my land." Dark Queen reached high to touch  up the moon, then everybody could see the moonlights were dimmed, all the outlines behind her were faded out. She turned off all the lights, and left the light only on her.

 

Right away, they heard Katrina appeared riding on Donkey Demos:" Uncle Wugene!"

Then Africa Empress appeared riding on Elephant Repas:" Katrina, come to mom."

Werewolf schooner moored to the shore, Werewolf Ambrose and his musketeers came and surrounded James and Shin Sun.

General Kay' Debra and Robert's wrist watches were flashing all the time. General Kay waited, until their aircraft landed and the craft door was opened:" Olivia's ride is here, so, let's go!" Shin Sun and James watched very closely to see that Mermaid Olivia was loaded into aircraft safely.

Seeing that Dark Queen still waiting, Friar Sand thanked her in appreciated tone:" Thanks, Your Majesty. It's been a pleasure."

Monkey King said:" Now we need to leave, I have a baby son to rescue in Hades! Thanks for getting everybody ready to be together for me!" He need White Dragon to ride him into 10th dimension, and they were already at 9 and half dimension. He need Ghost Argus to show him the entry path for the ghost so he can keep on tracking. He need Friar Sand to guide that he used to work in Hades and familiar with the terrain. And, everybody were all here!!

Dark Queen announced:" Let's the game start now!" She was happy to see that everybody mixed in such non-battle matter:" We are not in any battle at all. The game is that you get to leave when you win, but if anybody get to push your head to kiss the ground, your soul belong to my dark land from now on!"

The stars lighting was not blinking anymore, she raised her hand to turn off the moon, the moon was turning into all black all of sudden.

And everything was turning into dark! The billowing thick black clouds burst out of sky, silently and swiftly fallen all over.

The whole world was as black as pitch, even there was a little bit of star twinkle, the star lights disappeared one by one.

 

The sudden darkness enveloped them by shacking surprise off-guarded, they stared their eyes wide open but seeing nothing, they all instantly went blind and helpless.

But the vampires were able to fly and fight like bats. The Werewolves were able to jump and bite like wolves in the dark.

Africa Empress Tyra was holding Katrina to protect her in arms. The dark and terrors took them breathless, they held each other lower and quiet, didn't sure any direction is the safe place, and they still heard some tragedies and disasters happened around.

They heard the vampires attacked some donkeys, then the donkey started to groan like some bats, and it happened at near-by. They also heard the Werewolves attacked some elephants then the elephant started to wail like wolves. Because it's all dark, you don't know which way to hide from it.

Shin Sun flew himself up in the mid-air, he figured that Iron-Fan can keep him high away from the werewolves, low away to avoid the vampires. When he encountered some battle, he always hit the voice of wolf or bat.

Then he heard Princes Iron-Fan teleported in his brain: On my next flash, see where is she. On second flash, fly to her and make sure that your attack won't hurt our mortal team. On my third lighting, hit her with your best shot!

Shin Sun flew up immediately to get the best view. The first flash was so dim that he could only sense that Dark Queen was so close to Princess Iron-Fan and try to over-power her Igniter Veluriyam crystal. But he saw that White Dragon jumped out. West Sea Dragon should get a very good eyesight than the regular super spirits! He flew up his Iron-Fan to follow the Dragon.

The second flash made a yellow lights. He could see Dark Queen's black gown wafted away, and Monkey King aimed his Golden Cudgel to the direction. He also saw Friar Sand did a tricky action? Friar Sand aimed his weapon, the wander stick with Crescent Shovel to the opposite direction.

Instantly the third flash was a earthshaking lightings, lit up the whole dark outlines. Dark Queen was surrounded by Shin Sun' Princess Iron-Fan' White Dragon' Friar Sand' and Monkey King in the end of a corner. Spare no pains, everybody struggling to blow their best shot.

 

Dark Queen was almost burn by Princess Iron-Fan's thunder, her face was beaten into totally pale by White Dragon and Monkey King, Shin Sun fanned her back to the corner.

"Now," Monkey King asked anxiously:" Please turn on the moon, I need to go to hell to rescue my son."

Dark Queen reached her hand up to the sky, the full moonlights were back to the Shadow-Rift:" Not until you meet the New King."

"We beat you!" Friar Sand said:" The game is over! Don't waste our time no more!"

"He is your last game!" Dark Queen disappeared with a resentment smile:" Only him, can show you the way out of my Dark Kingdom!"

Monkey King was mad:" Just ignore her, such a sour loser! Let's just go to Hades to rescue my son now, finally I see all the helps are together now."

"She won some souls, some of us were fallen and touched her ground, I don't think they can leave here on their free will." Friar Sand pointed some faces of the Donkeys and Elephants team, their faces were getting darker and darker in dull expressions.

There was an announcement coming from the mid-air: "Meet his Majesty the King, New King of the night." The laughers in the voices sounded familiar to all the West Journey team? Monkey King' White Dragon and Friar Sand were looked at each other and in all ears.

The beaming moon climbed higher in the sky, rays pouring down, moonlight sparkled. There were some noises roared from nowhere, star's lights shimmering and blinking then the noise turned out to be some loud music.

So the King was more stress than the Queen of ostentation and momentum. He made his appearing a huge deal.

Monkey King holding up his Golden Cudgel, Friar Sand waved his Wonder Stick with Crescent Shovel, they all got ready to meet this King.

Monkey King was astounded when he saw the Night King appeared to be a very great looking male, he dressed like a Greek God, handsome with a muscular build in a suit of armor, dressed in a wide flowing cloak, winged sandals.

He was humming and dancing with the loud music:" What's up?! Brothers."

Friar Sand was relief:" That's it for the night, His Majesty, show us your weapon then we all can go."

Nobody know how to deal with Night King, except Ghost Argus, he was very excited:" So you are the King of the night!"

Monkey King put on a grim face of vicious monkey:" Your Queen had captivated some of my friends, we like to leave here all clean! Don't run away from the battle!"

"No battle." I don't come here for  No fight." Night King said:" Let's face the music, and dance the night. Make the best of it!"

"This! Can't be happening!" Monkey King couldn't believe his own eyes:" Why?!"

"Because I'm the King, I rule, tonight. You dance better than me? You win! you get to leave with anything you want!" He gave order in the respect of the King: "Turn up your own music, dance to your own music."

Werewolves and Vampires love to bogie, they dragged in the amplifiers and music mixer, played the music really loud. Everybody danced.

New King danced and praised it loud: "The King is here!"

Ghost Argus did the rock and roll, twisted and shouted: "Argus is here!"

White Dragon loved the party:" West Sea Dragon 3rd Prince is here!"

Phenice jumped to White Dragon:" Fly me to the moon, don't take me back until we see what kind of animal I'm."

It's Katrina happiest day. She had a nice ball game in Green Hill, now she had a dance party with everyone. The Donkeys, the Elephants, the Bears, the Oxes, plus the Vmpires and Werewolves.

It's so easy to mix Africa and New York together. Africa Empress Tyra was happy: "We are all at the edge of Archaian volcanoes.  The volcano eruptions split the earth into pieces, the melted icecap moved everything, how do you feel dancing over New York and Africa of two such different lands?!"

It's New King's order! Everybody dance in their dream! Shin Sun told James: Let's get Olivia and Dance!

So it's a dance for everybody, for their mind, and everybody use their music in their own mind.

Monkey King was never in such kind of situation before:" Sandy, how do we get out of nonsense?! I really need you to help me rescue my son, now."

Friar Sand waving his weapon, it's Wonder Stick with Crescent Shovel in one end:" As I told you in the beginning, just use the weapons then this Night King is done, he knew that he can never fight you, he is only want to have fun. It's him!"

"It's who?!"

Friar Sand didn't answer, jumped in and thrust his Crescent Shovel to New King.

New King turned around and escape the attack:" No fight!"

"I'm not fighting. " Friar Sand thrust again:" I'm dancing!"

New King started to fight back in empty hand. Monkey King swiped in his Golden Cudgel:" I'm dancing too! BROTHER!"

Under two sides attacked of Crescent Shovel and Golden Cudgel, New King was cornered nowhere to dodge, finally, he showed his weapon and countered to fight back.

He was using a wonder stick with nine-tooth Nail Palladium in one end, it's a weapon bestowed by Jade Emperor since he was Marshal Coverage of Water God in the Milky Way.

"Pigsy!" Monkey King recognized Nail Palladium right away.

"It took you too long to see it's me!" Pigsy withdrawn his Nail Palladium:" Monkey brother! Save me, get me out of this Dark land too!"

Friar Sand hit him with his Crescent Shovel:" When did she coronate you to be her King?! Did she push you to her ground?"

"No," Pigsy said:" I went to her bed in Las Vegas."

"Ok! New King of the Night!" Monkey King waved his Golden Cudgel:" Show us the exit! I have a son to rescue!"

"But she never show me anyway out of anything." Pigsy said:" So, I don't know."

"Of course not," Friar Sand said:" She would just want us to kill each other."

"Do you know, there was a way to get out of Dark Land," Iron-Fan Princess looked at James, then looked at Pigsy:" actually everybody knew it, only you never figure it out?!"

"How?" Pigsy said:" Which way?"

"Including anybody who had just fall to the ground and lost their soul," Friar Sand smiled:" You shall just go to send Olivia and James out of Shadow-Rift, learn and repeat how they lose the Dark feature, you will get rid of your Dark soul too. Do not come back again when you are out."

"Oh! Simple!" Pigsy shook hand with James.

"Now, could you tell me which way to go to hell for my son?"

"We shall be dancing on the way out!" Pigsy was excited, he turn up the music in his mind, shaking and moving with his hands and legs: "This is how I feel now! We are not in her curse anymore! In the instant you see me."

"Nobody wants to dance! Pigsy! Tell me where is the exit of the dark." Monkey King was annoyed.

"There is never any exit for the Dark, but if you are asking about the entry to the Hades to rescue your son, we are at 9 and half dimensions, Dragon can ride you to the 10th dimension by a blink, Sandy knew this all the time, he has to stay here because he need to rescue Katrina and Donkey Demos." Pigsy still had his own music in his mind, fingers and head still dancing.

Friar Sand nodded:" Yes, you shall bring Katrina to Queen Tyra back home, and we are on our way to Hades!"

Pigsy nodded: "The Hell shall be only one instant away when you die, but since you are still alive with this flesh body of 3 dimensions, Dragon can ride you through this half dimension in how soon?"

"One instant!" White Dragon jumped high to flew into the sky :" We are already there, half dimension is the distant between the mind and soul, everybody get on aboard!" he started to transform himself into a flying dragon. A great silver and white dragon flying through the raging clouds, flew low to land and flew through everybody.

Princess Iron-Fan jumped to ride on dragon neck.

Monkey King and Friar Sand jumped to the dragon wrist, then they dragged Shin Sun up with the Iron-Fan .

Ghost Argus reached his arm high:" Get me on!"

Pigsy laughed:" What for? you don't have a flesh body anymore, just focus your thought with them and you will be there before them."

"No, I still want the ride." Argus yelled:" Come on, my death wish."

Dragon flew through his transparent image, he could not really catch and hold on anything, but he was flying with everybody already, Princess Iron-Fan gave him the seat with dragon head view... ...
