Water in the Desert
Chapter one: Lost in the Desert
"The Deathstinger's reaching critical, we must escape!" a girl's voice came
in the com unit.
"Alright," the pilot said as he worked the controls. "Jump!" the zoid that
he piloted jumped leaving them floating away from danger.
A massive explosion shook the zoid and suddenly it twirled out of control.
"A tear is forming, port side," the voice said.
"Head for it," the man said. He saw through the screen that they have
entered the rift and then was surrounded by endless light.
Their journey into the unknown has begun.
Fiona and Reese sensed it.
Looking at the night's sky they wondered what it was.
"This is strange," Reese said as she continued to gaze in the star lit
night. "It felt like... I don't know."
"Like something good will come?" Fiona asked. Reese nodded and smiled at
"But before that comes great sorrow," she said.
"I hope not," Fiona sighed. "I had my fills of sorrow."
"Me too," Reese smiled. "Change of topic, what do you think lies underneath
the royal palace?"
"Must be something extremely important for King Rudolph to order an
excavation," Fiona said. "He seemed to be infatuated with a story of a
winged unicorn defeating a dragon."
"It sounds familiar," Reese said in thought.
"It does," Fiona sighed. "All we have to do is wait for Moonbay tomorrow
and we're on our way."
Reese smiled but her thoughts were still on their upcoming dig.
Van and Raven were at a standstill as they gazed at each other. Neither was
about to make a mistake.
Van then made his move.
"Full house ten over nines," he smiled triumphantly. Raven had a sneer on
"Four eights," he smiled. Van's jaw dropped.
"Royal straight flush," a set of cards of spades was set down. Van and
Raven looked at the cards incredulously. Then to the person who played
Irvine looked smug as he placed his feet on the table.
"You lose," he said. The three organoids who were with them laughed.
"Laugh it up," Van looked at Zeek, the silver organoid and sighed. "I guess
we deserved that."
"We did," Raven glared at Shadow.
"You cheated," Van glared at Irvine.
"No I didn't," the mercenary said.
"Anyway," Raven stretched. "I'm bored. Let's just get to that site and get
that relic out."
"I agree," Van sighed. "Digging is not my idea of serving the world."
"And this story of a winged unicorn and a dragon?" Raven huffed. "Sounds
like we shouldn't be doing this."
"Hey, if the pay is good," Irvine smiled as he stood. "I'll hit the sack,
see you tomorrow."
Van and Raven nodded and watched the mercenary went of to bed.
"Van," Raven looked serious. "To tell you the truth, I have a bad feeling
"You're not the only one," Van nodded his head in agreement. "So? You asked
her yet?" Raven immediately stiffened. "I'll take that as a no."
"I'm not ready yet," Raven sighed. "Fighting the Deathsaurer was easier."
"I know the feeling," Van smiled.
Moonbay was quietly her two passengers as they tried to fix their zoid.
Even in its battered state the zoid was marvelous. She only knew its name
and its type.
A wolf type zoid by the name of Koenig Wolf.
She found them in the desert asking for the nearest town. But with the
battered state the zoid is in, it would take days before they reached it.
"So Weis, where did you get this zoid?" she asked. The man called Weis
looked at her. He had white hair but with a touch of red, his companion, a
twelve-year-old girl by the name of Eve, who has light blue hair and eyes
smiled at her.
"It's a prototype," she said. "But he's a good friend."
"I'll say," Weis said. "He saved my life more times than I care to count."
"Really?" Moonbay smiled.
"Where are you headed?" Weis asked.
"To the Helic republic," she answered. "Then to Guylos."
"Guylos?" Eve's ears perked up.
"What for?" Weis asked.
"Just an archeological dig," Moonbay sighed.
"Dig?" Eve smiled. "I love archeology."
"Maybe the old man could use the extra help," Moonbay mused.
"And we'll be glad to help," Weis smiled. "So? How are you?" he asked the
Wolf. The Wolf howled and stretched its back. "Good, now rest."
"You should too," Moonbay suggested.
"I'll take first watch," Weis offered. Before she could argue, Eve took her
"Don't argue," she smiled. "We know you need the rest." Trusting them, she
As the girls prepared to sleep, Weis looked at the Koenig Wolf and sighed.
"An archeological dig, huh?" Weis smiled. "Maybe we could find a clue to
The Koenig Wolf howled.
