Sorry this chapter took so long. I am in the middle of multi tasking so it took me a while to get back to work. Anyway one more epic chapter to go. Finally I will reveal the mysterious Zirra that our heroes have been talking about and why is she so important to Frederick and his minions. The next chapter will be the longest though. It'll take at least 6000 words to complete so the battle will be epic. OH wait I'm was about to give away a spoiler. I hate those. Anyway on with the story.
Chapter 15 Darkness Will Rise
A few days later the pirate ship is slowly approaching their destination. Val, Cynder, and Spyro still remain in their cells in the under deck of the ship. The reason why they did not try to escape is because they are under the water in the ship. So if they tried to burrow out of the ship then the water would start gushing in and they would be trapped. Val meditates while Cynder lies on the ground and looks at Spyro who was still asleep on the ground of his cell. She can't help but worry that there was something wrong. He was like this for a while and he had not come back since two days ago. Whatever the Chronicler was showing him must be really important. But then she turns her attention back to Val who was meditating with his eyes closed. She looks at him and notices that for once in a long time he actually seems to be at peace. She had never seen her brother so calm before.
"What's going on Val? You seem to be less tense than usual." Cynder says to Val.
"Yes I am little sis. I was just thinking about something." Val says then lies down and looks back at his sister.
"Thinking about what exactly?" Cynder ask.
"To be honest I was thinking about Spyro and how he deals with all of the stress of being a pure purple Dragon and all." Val says.
"Well he and I share the stress. Ever since I met him the first time not when I was the huge monster the terror of the sky. I actually felt like he understood why I was that way." Cynder says having a flashback of when Spyro rescued her from Convexity the first actual time they met.
"I know what you mean Cynder that's why I fell in love with Demetara. She didn't look back at my past. She just looked at me and saw what I really am. I have never met a more selfless person in my life. She would give anything to anyone that needed it. I miss her." Val says with a tear starting to develop at the base of his right which was the side Cynder was looking at.
"Val I'm curious about what you did before we met you. Can you tell me what you did?" Cynder ask.
"There are some things Cynder that should remain secret. I altered the records of me so it says something else." Val says.
"It was that bad. You can tell me Val. After all I am your sister." Cynder says.
"Cynder do you really want to know?" Val asks Cynder looking her in the eye.
"Yes Val I want to know it'll help me and Spyro understand you better." Cynder says.
"Alright then. I have done things many things in my past. Many things I'm not proud of. It was hard since our parents passed away Cynder. They died when I was still a hatchling. That's when Cyrenus found me and took me in. For a while he raised me as a child of his own. For some reason from what I understand he thought that I was his son. Over a long period of time he treated me like any other father would treat their children then he went crazy when I was a teenager. Around that time Spyro had just saved you from the realm of Convexity. Anyway he kept ranting on about some mysterious music box he had found. I saw it. It was a rectangular box that on one side it had the symbol of the Adalisk and on the reverse side it had the symbol of the Devil Dragons. But on the bottom it had a symbol on it that shocks me. It was of a Dragon skull that had a sword stabbed in its right eye." Val says telling his story when Cynder interrupted.
"Where did he get the music box?" Cynder asked.
"I don't know he never said anything about just that the box spoke to him giving him visions of the future and giving him strange and unusual powers and abilities. One day I came into his office and I saw him talking to the box as if it was a friend but then that's when he forced me to do terrible things. Things that I regret now." Val says but is again interrupted by Cynder again.
"What kind of things?" Cynder ask.
"He would force me to rob banks steal children for ransom and worst of all kill his enemies. Because of him I'm a killer and nothing will change that." Val says.
"Val you have to over look that. Those things happened in the past you should be focused on the important things like what happens now." Cynder tells Val.
"Yah guess you're right but I could have had it worse." Val says.
Then the door to the upper deck of the ship slowly creeks open and footsteps are heard coming down the stairs. Cynder and Val watch the entrance to the prison deck when they see George the Baboon coming down with Frank following him with some trays in his hands.
"Well maybe if you hadn't taken a bathroom break when we swung by that Small Island then maybe we would have gotten here a lot sooner." Frank says to George as they ether the prison bay.
"Well sorry if I can't hold in my bodily fluids. After all I was the one that got a Dragon horn shoved up my butt." George says to Frank.
"We all know about you butt problems George you're always reminding us." Frank says.
"Not these two morons." Val mumbles.
Frank and George walk over to Cynder, Val, and Spyro's cells to give them their daily rations. Frank gives Val and Cynder their rations and George walks over to Spyro's cell and puts the tray of food inside the cell though the bar walls. Frank then notices Spyro on the floor.
"What's wrong with him?" Frank asks.
"Nothing he's just sleeping that's all." Val says.
"Good then. The master wants you all to come to the ceremony." Frank says to Val and Cynder.
"What ceremony?" Cynder ask Frank.
"I don't really know. All I know is that we're supposed to pray to some holly shrine or something like that. Then the shrine uses it's magical abilities to bring back our fallen master and the Adalisk." Frank says.
"Really the Wolves are the ones that suggested it not us." George says.
"I see so the wolves want the Apes to come to the Well of Souls which I must add is now under their control just so that they can bring back two Dragons that may or may not harm you." Val says to Frank and George.
"Ha. Like Frederick would hurt his own servants." Frank says to Val.
"I was talking about Zirra. Haven't you heard about her?" Val says.
"No I have not heard of her. Is she pretty?" George says then Frank slaps him in the back of the head.
"Oh I'll tell you what she is. She's the terror of the skies. Her heart's so cold that they say it's made of ice. They say that she once driven a person insane with a single look. I've heard that she's even taken on an entire army and has defeated them all on her own. Oh and you don't even want to know what I heard what she did to an Ape." Val says then grins.
Frank and George are scared and run out of the room like they had seen a ghost. After the two Apes speed out of the room Cynder and Val laugh together.
"You made that up didn't you?" Cynder asks.
"Not all of it. But some of it yes I did make up." Val says to Cynder.
"What part is are fake?" Cynder ask.
"I shouldn't say." Val says.
"Land Ho! Get those crates loaded off and get those Dragons out of the cargo hold so we can get to the Well of Souls." An Ape on the deck can be heard saying.
"We're here. Now what?" Val asks.
"I don't know I expected Spyro to be awake when we got to shore. But he's still asleep." Cynder says looking at Spyro who was still asleep in his cell.
"Let's just hope that whatever it is the Chronicler's telling is important or we're doomed once we get inside." Val says.
"They're just Apes and Wolves. I've never seen a Wolf before but they can't be any harder then Baboons or Orcs or anything else I've seen over the years." Cynder says.
"No Cynder that's the point. Wolves are not going to be that easy to take out like Apes or Grumlins. Unlike them they stick together in large packs and actually know how to fight. They're Dragon Hunters. Meaning they go around killing, skinning, and eating any weakened Dragon that they can find. Of all things I've encountered they are the most vicious. Whatever you do don't let them surround you or you're finished." Val says to Cynder.
"Okay then. I hope Spyro wakes up then." Cynder says but is then interrupted by the sound of the door opening.
Down the stairs comes the Gorilla that captured Val and behind there were the two large Baboons that captured Spyro and Cynder. The Gorilla was a black Gorilla that had a purple kind of color in his eyes and he was large and muscular compared to the two Baboons. He looks at Cynder, Val, and then Spyro and then speaks breaking the silence.
"You're coming with us. It's time to begin the ceremony and you are our special guest." The Gorilla says as the two Baboons go over and put some restraints on Spyro and Cynder then take them to the upper deck.
Then the Gorilla opens up Val's cell and before he could step into it Val dashes out and run in between the Gorillas legs then turns around facing the Gorilla from the back. The Gorilla turns around and charges at Val. Val then rams into the Gorillas stomach. He expects the Gorilla to stop to catch his breath but instead he laughs. The Gorills then grabs Val and restrains him. The Gorilla was tougher then he thought that's the only thought that goes through Val's head as the Gorilla brings him on the upper deck. Val opens his eyes and instead of seeing a beach he sees that the ship had docked at a ship dock that was surrounded by various jagged rocks as you got closer to the land. Cyrenus gets off of the ship first he is then followed by the two large Baboons with Spyro and Cynder on their backs and then the large Gorilla with Val slung over his shoulder with the other pirates following behind him.
Val looks around and sees the gloomy skies above him. It then occurred to him that the Well of Souls was being activated by the Dark Master Malefor and this time something bad was about to happen. He thought that for once he actually wished Spyro was fighting and not unconscious on a large Baboons shoulder at the moment. The tension in the air grows as the group gets closer to the shore. At the end of the docks there were three upright walking Wolfs. One brown one white and one that was black with a robe covering his body. Cyrenus walks up to the Wolves and smiles expecting some kind of welcome. The wolves just stand silent and looking at Cyrenus with their red eyes. Cyrenus's smile fades away as he realizes that they weren't going to do anything.
"Well we have brought what we have promised. Like I said before the Black Dragon the Purple Dragon and even the Dark Dragon just as promised." Cyrenus says pointing to the large Baboons and the Gorilla.
"Silence you. Did you bring the crystals for the ceremony?" The Wolf in the robe says with a rough sounding voice.
"Right we have the crystals and I assume that you carried out my end of the bargain." Cyrenus says to the Wolf.
"Yes you fool the Dark God sends his promise rewards to you." The Wolf in the robe says then out of the fog behind him comes two more wolves that were gray and black and between them they were carrying a large treasure chest.
The two wolves walk over and drop the treasure chest down in front of Cyrenus then walk back into the fog. Once the wolves were gone Cyrenus walks over and opens up the lid and inside the chest there were an assortment of rare Gems and Gold that were worth millions. Cyrenus grins as he closes the lid of the treasure chest and turns around to face the Wolf in the robe.
"So I just take it and go." Cyrenus says.
"Yes take it. To the great Dark God gold and Gems are meaningless." The Wolf says.
"You hear that boys we're going to be filthy rich!" Cyrenus calls out to the group of Apes and Grumlins behind him and the crowd cheers.
"Not so fast money hoarder." The wolf says whiching out a rope from his wrist and pulling the heavy treasure chest back to him. "First you're going to help us with the ceremony then you get your reward that was the deal." The Wolf says propping one leg on top of the treasure chest.
"Alright fine. We'll accompany you to the Well of Souls where I'll get paid for my various difficulties." Cyrenus says to the Wolf.
"Good you see it our way my men will hold the treasure and the rest of it at the Well of Souls so that you can acquire it when the ceremony is complete." The Wolf in the robe says as the two Wolves beside him take the crate back to the Well of Souls which was a couple of miles away.
With a wave of his hand the large group of Baboons, Grumilns, and Pirates all follow the Wolf as he guides them back to the Well of Souls. Val thinks to himself what if Spyro didn't come back in time or if the Wolves killed him before he awakened from his slumber. He turns his head to look at Spyro who was on the shoulder of the Baboon directly in front of the Gorilla. He looks at Spyro who was still in deep slumber then he had one thought that went through his head. For once in a long time Val was afraid. If he tried anything he feared that they would harm Spyro or Cynder and Cynder thought the same thing. They had no choice but to wait until Spyro returned or they had a chance to escape.
Meanwhile in Spyro's mind he follows Ignitus as he guides Spyro through a ruined temple. Spyro looks around at the temple and sees tons of Dragons artifacts that were left behind over the years. He saw things like Armor, Pikes, Spears, Wagons, and things like that. They were heading down what seemed to be a long hallway that led to a bubble shaped dome. Ignitus brings Spyro to the center of the large dome shaped room and Spyro looks around and sees the room is empty. He looks up at Ignitus who was looking up at the ceiling. Spyro looks up at the ceiling and he sees a huge bright light coming from the ceiling. But for some reason he looks right at it but yet his eyes don't hurt. It's like the light was healing him from the outside in just from looking at the bright light.
"What is it?" Spyro ask.
"This is the eternal light Spyro. It has shined like this ever since the Chronicler first came here. It's a source of life and hope for all that gazes upon it." Ignitus tells Spyro.
"But it's just a light. How can it do that?" Spyro asks.
"Easy Spyro. The light itself is alive. It shines because of all the forces of good in the world and its people. It lives because of hope." Ignitus tells Spyro.
"What happens if there is no hope?" Spyro asks.
"The light will go out and the void of evil will fill its place. A presence of pure evil that will never stop this and all other Dragon Realms are consumed by it." Ignitus says bringing his head down and taking a breath.
Spyro looks over at Ignitus and notices that his scars from Cynder's attack years ago had healed and he actually looked younger here. Spyro takes a breath and closes eyes like Ignitus but when he closes his eyes he sees flashes of horrific scenes. He tries to analyze the pictures of the scenes in his head but it was too fast. Practically all he could see was a burning city with a silhouetted figure with a bone arm facing Spyro. The silhouetted figure reaches out to him with the bone arm and the vision suddenly shatters as the hand got closer to him. Spyro opens his eyes after seeing one vision of Cynder being chained up to some kind of torture machine. Spyro opens his eyes and looks around. Thankfully none of it was real. He looks over to Ignitus who was looking down at him like he had seen what Spyro had just seen. Then Spyro suddenly hears whispering voices come in his head. The voices are so loud that he can't even hear his own thoughts then suddenly they vanish when Spyro looks back up at the light.
"What did you see young Dragon?" Ignitus asks.
"Fire, Destruction, Evil, Apocalypse, Death. I don't really know what I just saw but all I could make out was fire and this one creature with a bone arm. He was reaching out to me like he was trying to harm me. What does this mean Ignitus?" Spyro says.
"That was a vision of the future Spyro. The figure in your vision is that of the Dark God." Ignitus says.
"Dark God? I still don't know who this guy is and I'm already seeing him in my visions my dreams and yet you won't tell me anymore." Spyro says to Ignitus looking at him and with a hint of frustration in his voice.
"Enough young Dragon!" Ignitus says to Spyro trying to calm him down. "The future is never set in stone. We just need to figure out how we can prevent this apocalypse from happening or find a way to prepare for it." Ignitus tells Spyro.
"Okay then let's say that this Dark God is somehow released from his prison. So what are we going to need to do to prepare for him?" Spyro asks.
"That I can help you with Spyro you see I've been scanning through the vast collection of books that the Chronicler left behind and some of them detail how it is he defeated the Dark God when he was a Dragon Guardian. Many years ago there was a league of heroes that were untied to defend the Dragon world and all the Dragon realms from the forces of evil. They were assembled from the greatest of warriors from across the realms. Their name was the Skylanders and they were led by the Chronicler when the Dark God rose. The Skylanders were practically an army of heroes that stood off against the Dark God's forces and aloud the Chronicler to defeat the Dark God and banish him to the depths of Convexity." Ignitus tells Spyro.
"Wait so I heard the Dark God and not Malefor's voice when I was in Convexity." Spyro says.
"Correct young Dragon. Malefor was just one of many souls trapped in the realm of Convexity but the Dark God is perhaps the strongest and smartest of all the foes you will ever face. That why I am giving you, Valavadorog, and Cynder abilities that will assist you on your quest and most importantly will help you defeat the Dark God once and for all." Ignitus tells Spyro.
Then the eternal light shines a beam of light that focuses directly on Spyro's forehead. For a brief second Spyro feels invincible like he could stop an entire army on his own. Spyro starts to glow with white energy that seems to emanate from him like a lantern. Then the beam stops and Spyro lifts up in the air and suddenly the entire dome building is lit up with a bright light for a brief second. Then Spyro slowly floats back to the ground and he sees Ignitus looking at him with a smile.
"You now have an element that no Dragon before you ever had. The ability of the light this ability will light your way in the darkest of places and allows you to vaporize the dark demons under the command of the Dark God. It will also allow you to turn virtually invisible when you use it to bend light around your body making you invisible to the naked eye." Ignitus tells Spyro.
"I feel like I can take on an army on my own now Ignitus. Let's get back in action and kick some serious butt." Spyro says.
"Now then Spyro calm yourself. I know you're anxious to use your new powers but they will drain you of your stamina until you learn how to fully control it. I have also given a different power to Cynder and Valavadorog. To Cynder I gave her the power of the undead this power will allow her to summon the fallen heroes of times long past to assist her in her time of need. To Valavadorog I gave him the power of the Shadow leeching. This will give him the ability to absorb power from anything he wishes and use these powers for a brief time. These abilities will help along with you quest. But when times get toughest you three must come together to use the Dragon's ultimate fury. Legends say that only the Dragon guardians have used this move when encountering overwhelming odds. But warning it does great harm to the enemy and the user like all your other abilities it should only be used when absolutely needed." Ignitus tells Spyro.
But then to Spyro the whispering voices come back into his mind and he loses focus. But this time he can clearly hear the voices say to him "Join us." He shakes his head and Ignitus notices this and then knows something is wrong. Spyro looks up at Ignitus and looks curiously at him. For some reason Ignitus looked shocked.
"Tell me something Spyro. Are you hearing voices?" Ignitus suddenly ask.
"Yes. I've been hearing voices in my head since I left Convexity the first time. Why is it serious?" Spyro says to Ignitus.
"Yes it is Spyro. If you are hearing the voices then that means the Dark God is coming for you." Ignitus tells Spyro.
"Well I am the best." Spyro says.
"No Spyro you don't understand." Ignitus says.
"I was just kidding." Spyro says.
"Not that I mean the Dark God will return and you should go before he comes here." Ignitus says.
"Wait I should. But I still want to talk to you Ignitus." Spyro says then looks below him and sees his paws getting covered by a bright mist.
"Goodbye Spyro. May the Ancestors watch over better than I can." Ignitus says as Spyro disappears crying out Ignitus's name.
Then Ignitus turns around as the sound of footsteps come from behind him. He turns around to find three shadow Demons coming towards him.
Suddenly Spyro wakes up on the shoulder of a large Baboon. He looks around and sees that he is in the middle of a marching line of Baboons, Grumilns, and Wolves. He tries to move but his front and back legs are tied with some tough chain. He relaxes and looks behind the Baboon he sees Val getting carried by a large Gorilla. Spyro was releaved to see one of his friends with him but when he turns his head he finds himself at the base of the Well of Souls. The mountain was glowing with a green glow at the top. And the path they were going on led straight into the mountain itself. The Well was active again just like when he fought Gaul years ago. He looks up in the sky and sees a swarm of large bats flying over the mouth of the mountain. On the bat rode Baboons that were checking the skies for any Dragon that happened to come by. The smell of smoke fills the air as the convoy of Baboons, Grumlins, and Wolves enter the Well and close the huge door behind them.
"Come. The ceremony is about to begin." The Wolf in the robe says to Cyrenus.
"I'll tell the men to follow us to the…" Cyrenus says but then is interrupted by the Wolf in the robe.
"No. No Apes. Only you and the Dragons no one else. The Apes will pollute the ceremony." The Wolf in the robe says to Cyrenus.
"But they will escape?" Cyrenus says.
"Bring along the Gorilla then for good measure. But we must hurry. This Ecplise only happens every hundred years." The Wolf syas continuing down the passageway that led deeper into the mountain.
"Alright release them." Cyrenus says.
The two large Baboons set down Spyro and Cynder then untie them the Gorilla also does the same. The Dragons get to their feet but then there was something wrong. For some reason they couldn't control their bodies except their mouths.
"Spyro what's going on I cam't move?" Cynder ask Spyro.
"I think it's the crystal of Zirra. I think it's controlling us. Like how it turned you years ago." Spyro says to Cynder.
"Yah well you probably got use to it Cynder by now. But I would like it better if I was in control of my own body." Val says trying to gain control of his body as he, Spyro, and Cynder follow behind Cyrenus.
"Well Val you better get used to it because until Cyrenus releases the crystal we'll be like puppets only talking." Spyro tells Val.
"Well that's good to know. But it feels good that Zirra's not in my head this time." Cynder says.
"Yah I kept forgetting that you and Zirra shared the same mind for a brief time." Spyro says to Cynder.
"Wait so she was a psychopath at one time. I'm going to keep my distance." Val says.
Cynder then growls as she says "It was not my fault. I don't even remember much of what I did as that monster."
"It's alright Cynder. That's in the past. You wshould only worry about what's going on now and not focus on what happened in the past." Spyro says to Cynder.
"Hay guys look." Val says.
Spyro and Cynder look ahead and find themselves in the part of the mountain where they faced Gaul years ago. But it was different now. Where the cheering crowd of Apes once stood now stood a crowd of cloaked Wolves that were all watching as the group comes to the center of the wide open space in the center of the room. The Eclipse was coming. Spyro knew that if he was going to try something he should do it fast or it would be too late.
That's that. Spyro, Cynder, and Val all have new abilities. But what is it that Ignitus saw. I won't reveal that until the next story though when I release the ultimate enemy the Dark God. Which I thought of while playing the Eternal Night. Oh yah if I don't get started on my next story directly after this one then I'm doing something on DeviantArt. If you want to see what it is then visit my profile there. I can't wait to actually use Zirra. She's going to be epic and I hope you like her. Again she does not belong to me she belongs to Seeraphine on DeviantArt and I got permission to use her.
