When Maraqua met Faerieland
Queen Fyora was sitting on her throne in the Faerie Castle and she was talking with Illusen that she should tale more care if her royal garden. But suddenly an earthquake shook everything, Fyora's throne slid to the left Fyora and Illusen had nowhere to hide from the cruelty of the earthquake. A huge crack began to open the ground, starting from Jhudora's Bluff and moving towards the Faerie City. The crack was widening all the time until the crater opened and Faerieland began to sink in the water.
Miles away in Maraqua, Talek the Swordmaster swam fast to the throne room of King Kelpbeard's castle.
"My King something terrible is happening. Faerieland is sinking" Talek reported.
"We should build a fortress around Maraqua to protect us all, of the currents that will be caused by the tidal waves" King replied
"It's too late to do that. The currents are approaching us really fast"
"I know Talek. Tell the town crier to warn everyone to stay in their homes, for their own safety"
"Yes, your majesty" said Talek and left to announce the will of King Kelpbeard to the town crier.
After some minutes Faerieland had completely sunk in the depths of the Neopian Ocean. The tidal waves and strong currents moved a rocky object to the Ruins of Maraqua, the object bumped The Darkest Faerie statue causing a red orb, Jerdana's orb, to fall upon the object. The object was like a statue of a xweetok. A very familiar xweetok to all the residents of Faerieland and all Neopia. It was Xandra ! Cracks were forming on the stone covering Xandra, there was a red light, similar to the colour of the orb, coming out of the cracks. Eventually Xandra was freed of the stone formation.
"Gaaah" she shouted as bubbles were coming out of her mouth. She stood up, looked around and finally she realized she was in Maraqua. She held her breath and swam towards the Fishing Vortex. She took a deep breath, swam out of the Vortex and moved to the surface.
"Ahh" she breathed heavily
In the distance, she could see Mystery Island, and she decided to swim towards it and later go to the mainland.
After a couple of hours she made it to Mystery Island, and fainted of exhaustion on the shore. Meanwhile Rorru was taking his daily walk by the beach, where he found her and took her with him to let her rest. After hours Xandra has regained her powers and her magic got strong again. She left before Rorru returned, she went to the harbour, took a boat and left for Neopia Central.
At the same time a Darigan eyrie was meditating in a small hut in Shenkuu, and a glowing nimmo approached him.
"How do you feel Sakk ? Less angry and more calm I hope"
The eyrie was keeping his eyes shut. Suddenly he started opening his eyes slowly and steadily.
"I feel good" Sakk said in a plain way "But revenge will be mine" he said passionately
"I hope you don't mean it" the glowing nimmo said
"Well, master...I'd love to get revenge, but I'm afraid that if I appear the rest of the pets will be awfully terrified. But I hope that soon the time that everyone will be dropping their jaws in awe and surprise to me...I'll take revenge master ; the right way this time !"
Master Xing was shocked to hear that.
The eyrie began meditating again.
Xandra's boat had dissembarged the passengers at the Harbour of Neopia Central. Xandra hired a uni and she was off to Shenkuu. A couple of days later she was there and she went to the hut of Master Xing. Master Xing was an acquaintance with Xandra. Xandra knocked on the door of his hut. Master Xing opened the door and to his surprise it was Xandra !
"How...Why...What are you doing here ?" said Master Xing surprised
Sakk was curious about what was happening, it was the first time he saw Master Xing getting surprised. Xandra walked in and dropped her jaw in awe.
"It can't be !" Xandra said
The Darigan eyrie in the black armour stared at Xandra
"What happened ?" asked Master Xing
"It's Lord Kass...he is alive !" Xandra said
"Who are you ?" asked Kass
"I'm Xandra, the Destroyer of Faerieland" she said proudly, Kass grinned proudly too.
"I'm a sorceress. A lot better than Morguss" Kass grinned again.
"I wish I knew you back then, you'd help me conquer Meridell" Kass smirked
"You were supposed to be dead" Xandra said and continued "How did you survived ?"
"Ah ! That's a story I don't want to remember; I exchanged my spirit for my body, and now I'm a soulless eyrie" he said in a sad tone almost painful.
Meanwhile in Krawk Island, on the Revenge. Benny walked to his Captain's room.
"Captain Scarblade !" he said
"What is it ?" replied a voice
"Faerieland has sunk !"
Captain Scarblade turned to him and quit looking out of the scuttle with a smirk on his face
"Let's go raid them" said Scarblade
At the same time in Maraqua. Fyora was talking with Nereid, the water faerie and King Kelpbeard
"So will you help us ?" Fyora asked Nereid
"Yes, of course. I'll make the waters turn around and not flood the castle" Nereid said
"And I'll order my troops to build a dam around your city" King added
"Nice ! Without water Illusen and Iyana will be able to rise Faerieland to ground level" Fyora said happily.
Back in Shenkuu, Lord Kass and Xandra were packaging their things to go to the Haunted Woods to get Lord Kass' soul back. Master Xing waved at them and wished them luck. Xandra and Kass were walking down Shenkuu's footing
"I'm tired" Xandra complained to Kass
"And what do you want me to do about that ?" Kass replied cynically
"Well, the Battle Faerie was riding an eyrie" she said
Kass turned suddenly to face her ; his eyes were piercing hers. Xandra was scared.
"How dare you offend me ! You pathetic xweetok !" and he continued "What do you think I am ? A uni ?" he asked outraged
"I...I'm sorry" she replied
Lord Kass looked down on her and kept on walking
"I said I'm sorry" she shouted angrily at him
Lord Kass turned around and stared at her for a while
"Fine" he said and kept walking
A few meters away it was an abandoned cart, Lord Kass approached it, there were a couple of Alabriss attached to the cart. Lord Kass jumped on it and Xandra followed suit. Then the Alabriss started galloping. A zafara ran out of a nearby shop shouting at them "Hey ! My cart ! Get it back !" angrily
Meanwhile in Meridell, in the throne room of King Skarl ; Skarl, Kayla, Lisha and Jeran were looking on the floor, where Kayla had spread some magical powder to watch Zafara Double Agent's moves, because there was a rumour that Darigan had sent her to spy on them
"It can't be !" Jeran whispered and continued and said "Did you see what I just saw ?"
"Yes, I did. The Zafara Double Agent is having a normal life and she is not spying on us. And someone stole her cart !" King Skarl roared with laughter
"It's not that" Jeran said "I think I saw Kass" he continued
"I also caught a glimpse of a Darigan eyrie, but he could be anyone" said Kayla
"But he was wearing an armour" Jeran said
"But he is supposed to be dead" Lisha said
"And Xandra is supposed to be trapped in a stone form, but she was there too" Jeran said
"But she could be any speckled xweetok" Kayla argued
"Maybe..." Jeran said unconvinced.
A little later in Lost Desert, Lord Kass and Xandra were in a room on separate beds. Kass was about to lay on his bed until Xandra asked "Is that armour multi-functional ?" and laughed lightly
Kass turned his head lightly to see her with the edge of his eye and piercing her with his fixed look. He then laid on hid bed facing the ceiling and staring at the ceiling all the time. After an uneventful moment, Lord Kass began scratching his back on his bed
"Are you OK ?" asked Xandra worried
Kass didn't answer. After a short while he opened the window and flew to the top of the tree, he yawned, twinkled his eyes twice in a sleepy way and then tucked his head into his wings, just like how all birds do. When Xandra was sure that Kass had made himself comfortable, she turned on her side and fell asleep. A minute later she heard a couple of wings flapping and she woke up
"Are you sure that you are OK ?" she asked worried
"The armour..., isn't comfortable" he answered and grabbed the pyjamas, which were put on top of the vanity desk by the owner of the house. Xandra was wearing a huge smile on her face
"I'm gonna change in the bathroom" he declared and walked to it
Xandra turned on the other side of her bed
"Night" she said
"Night" he replied
Meanwhile in the middle of the Neopian Ocean, Revenge, Captain Scarblade's ship was dangerously approaching Faerieland, but they were all asleep. On the ship Scarblade was giving instructions to his men
"Be silent. We don't want to wake them up !"
A rather silly skeith asked "How come they breath underwater ?"
"Charlie, would you like to explain him ? I don't have time for stupid questions" Scarblade said annoyed
Charlie, a red kyrii answered to the silly question
"They used a magical potion that lets them breath underwater"
Revenge was only a kilometre away from the Faerie City. After not mcuh time they were there.
"Charlie, Goty and Ihian. You stay here. The rest follow me" he ordered
Scarblade and his men dived and swam to the Hidden Tower, he pointed a window to his men to get in through it. His men swam through it. Endless treasures were awaiting for them there Darigan paint brushes, Royal paint brushes, Baby paint brushes, Faerie paint brushes, Maractite paint brushes
"Upon Pirate's Ghost" Scarblade said in awe
"All there will be ours very soon Capt'n" said Benny
"These stuff will get us trillions" said Scarblade, then he put his finger upon his mouth, so that they would get silent
"Pick 'em up !" Scarblade ordered
"Get some of these weapons with you, we'll need them !" he added with a smirk
He was thinking how easy would be to take over both Faerieland and Maraqua. Scarblade got Pirate Captain's Hat and Pirate Captain's Cutlass and Benny took Kelpbeard's Trident, now he would fight Kelpbeard and he'd defeat him with his very own weapon. The rest got some great random items, in few words they literally emptied the Hidden Tower.
"Hurry ! It will dawn in a couple of hours and we need to hide all the evidence we left behind" Scarblade ordered and immediately his pirates tided up everything. After they finished Scarblade closed the window and they swam to Revenge, in time before the action of potion was gone.
"Full steam reverse !" Scarblade ordered
The ship went backwards, turned and went to the Krawk Island.
Later that day, in dawn, Fyora woke up and headed to her now sunken hidden tower, she said a spell that opened the doors of the tower, she walked in, climbed up the stairs and...
"For Coltzan's sake ! What in Neopia is going on in here ?" she said shocked.
It was the first time the Hidden Tower was absolutely empty even the NPs of the till was empty. She thought it was the Pant Devil and ignored what happened, she just equipped her tower with plenty of Pant Devil attractors and just restocked as she always does, but not from the warehouse, no, it was also empty.
Miles away, in Lost Desert, Kass had woken up and was staring out of the window, it was a cloudy, miserable day, but he was happy, it reminded him of his home in Darigan Citadel or as he was always calling it Kass Citadel. He smiled to himself by that thought. Xandra woke up, she was cold and a large shadow was upon her eyes
"Hmph...who turned off the light, I'm afraid sleeping in the dark !" she said in a sleepy way. Then she opened her eyes and noticed that Kass was blocking the few sunlight from getting in the room. Xandra got up and walked closer to him.
"That reminds me of Xandraland, when the faerie were still petrified. The clouds were the same dark !" she smirked
Kass thought to himself "Kass Citadel, Xandraland. We are 2 failed conquerors" he thought
"I gotta go get my soul" he announced severely
"You are going alone ?" asked Xandra in shock
Kass didn't answer, opened the door and walked away. Xandra ran behind him
"Where do you think you are going ?" she asked him
"I'm going to get my soul" he replied seriously
"Alone ?" she asked sarcastically
"Yeah ! Why ?" he was curious ; did she have that tone in her voice
"Well, let's just say that Hubrid Nox's ghost is haunting the graveyard and Edna with Sophie, will definitely not let you in...besides I convince them" said Xandra while she was picking up her Alabriss Staff
"Great !" said Kass with an evil smile on his face. He looked as evil as during the Great War of Meridell.
