Klonoa's True Destiny
Chapter 1: She Returns, And So Will He
It has been a mere two weeks since Nahatomb was destroyed. The world of Phantomile has become peaceful yet again. Darkness is longer a threat to the world; rather, people have learned to accept it, creating a balance of light and darkness. Almost everyone was happy with the new peace. However, under all of the happiness, there was one soul that was damaged.
The most peaceful place was Breezegale, the Wind Village. It was never a place for panic to start, and the residents were always laid-back. Near a recently rebuilt house were three individuals. One was a fourteen-year-old boy that seemed to be a wolf. He was decked out in a red shirt with fur around the collar, as well as blue jeans. A belt around his waist held a pair of red handguns. Another looked like a dog about a year or two younger that the male. He had a mainly pale yellow body, which had some orange stripes on the arms, legs, and body. His eyes looked like green jewels, and his arms could stretch out. If you didn't know him, you'd think he was a robot. The last was an old man in a rocking chair, with a pipe in his mouth. His fur was mainly a purple color, with some white fur here and there. He had long ears that were as tall as him, and the ends were white and puffy.
"*burp* Thanks for the meal, Grandpa!" The dog chirped said to the old man.
"Heh heh heh, it was no problem, Popka." Grandpa replied. He looked at the wolf. "How did you like it, Gantz?"
The wolf pointed to Popka. "Ditto." They all chuckled.
Soon, they heard what sounded like weak footsteps. The three of them didn't know where they were coming from, but they knew the source was getting closer. Gantz happened to glance to his right, and gasped. Grandpa and Popka looked in that direction, and were shocked as well.
Approaching them was a girl, about thirteen years old, walking slowly and slightly hunched over, head down. Her hair was long and orange. She wore a pink priestess outfit, and had a small tail that dropped down. Despite being at a distance, Gantz, Popka, and Grandpa knew who she was.
"Is that… Lolo?!" Gantz asked.
"It IS her! She's back!" Popka exclaimed. The wolf and dog rushed toward Lolo with smiles on their faces. "Hey, Lolo!" Popka called to her. He was about to clap a hand on her shoulder, but Lolo quickly grabbed Popka's wrist.
"Don't… touch… me…" The priestess said in a weak voice.
"Lolo, what's wrong with you?" Gantz asked, slightly annoyed. Lolo raised her head, and Gantz gasped when he got a good look at her appearance. Her normally bright orange hair was dull, part of it hanging over her face. Her blue eyes lost the sparkle they had once had, and they looked like she had been crying for some time. Her priestess outfit was dirty and slightly tattered. Her hat was adorned with a big black feather.
"Please… leave me alone…" Lolo groaned as she let go of Popka's arm. She started to walk past them, but her two friends stepped in her way.
"You expect us to just leave you alone after what's been happening?" Popka asked. "You've been gone for two weeks, with no calls or letters, and you come back looking like this! There's no way we're backing off!"
"Get out… of my way!" Lolo yelled angrily. This surprised the wolf and dog. Lolo never got angry before. She tried to fight her way through, but Gantz grabbed both of her arms.
"Knock it off, Lolo!" Gantz shouted. "We just want to help, but we can't if you won't calm down and tell us what's wrong!"
"Nothing you do could help me…" Lolo said sadly.
"Huh…?" Popka wondered as Gantz let go of the priestess's arms.
"If you truly want to know…" Lolo began, "then I'll tell you. Find Chipple and Pango. They will know too."
"Somebody say our names?" Two voices asked. The group turned around and saw the two people they were talking about. Pango, a massive armadillo-like person, was dressed in his usual green overalls and black shoes. Chipple, a young kangaroo-type person, wore his usual pink tank top, his boxing gloves, and his helmet that covered his eyes.
"Whoa, what happened to you, Lolo?" Chipple asked, noticing her shoddy appearance.
"I'll tell everything…" Lolo sighed. "Follow me…" Lolo led the group over to Grandpa's newly rebuilt house. Grandpa noticed Lolo's appearance as well.
'This can't be good…' The old man thought.
Meanwhile, a completely different world known as Gigaros had just been returned to peace. An area called the Kingdom of Thought had been saved from a scoundrel intent on erasing all the knowledge there. Said scoundrel was stopped by a young feline boy, about thirteen years old. His body was covered in black fur, with white fur around his muzzle. He had orange eyes and long ears like Grandpa that became white and puffy at the ends. He was wearing a blue shirt with a big zipper on the front, as well as dark blue shorts. On his head was a cap of the same blue as his shorts, with a yellow figure and dot on it. (A/N: To us, that's Pac-Man.) He wore red sneakers and yellowish gloves. In his right hand was a gold ring with a green gem on it. He was from Phantomile, and was trying to find a way back. Currently, the boy, whose name was Klonoa, was in a massive library.
"Man, this place is worthless!" He said to himself. "Not a single book on what I need!"
"Can I help you, our savior?" A voice asked him. Klonoa turned and saw a librarian.
"I hope so." He told her. "I need to find a way to be able to travel to different worlds. I want to return to my home." Surprisingly, the girl pulled a book from a nearby shelf.
"I'm surprised you didn't find it." She said. "I hope it helps." The librarian walked off. Klonoa opened the book he was given, entitled The Many Worlds. Flipping through the pages, he found a section named Dimension Travel.
'I think this is it.' Klonoa thought. Reading the section, he came across a sentence:
"To travel between worlds, one must have an Emerald of Gigaros."
'An Emerald of Gigaros?' Klonoa asked again in his mind. He remembered something, and pulled out a hunter green gem that was given to him by the king of the Kingdom of Thought. 'I think this is one of those.' Klonoa continued to read the section in the book.
"Hold the gem in both hands, say all the reasons you want to go to the designated world, then yell 'Emerald of Gigaros, please take me to the world of (world name)!' If the Emerald feels your reasons are just and truthful, it will create a portal to the designated world."
Klonoa closed the book slowly, then walked out of the library and into a field. 'Let's see if this works.' He thought. He held the emerald in both of his hands, and began to speak.
"I want to be back where I belong. I want to see my friends and family. Most of all, I want to be with Lolo, the only person I ever loved. Emerald of Gigaros, please take me to the world of Phantomile!"
Nothing happened for a few seconds, but then the Emerald began to glow intensely. Then, a portal appeared near Klonoa. A smile appeared on his face.
"It worked!" He shouted. However, he heard a cracking noise. Looking down, he saw that the emerald had shattered into pieces. "One use only, I guess. It doesn't matter now. Lolo, everyone, hang on. I'm on my way!" He jumped through the portal with his famous yell: "Wahoo!"
Worry not, Lolo fans! She'll get better! Don't get confused about the fact that this story said only two weeks had passed, and that Klonoa said a year had passed in Klonoa's Decision. It will be explained later. Stay tuned for more!
