Kai stood in the Darkness Dimension. The Dark One was hovering in front of him. Kai shuddered as he remembered what happened the last time he and the Dark One encountered. He had been combined with Dranzer and controlled by the Dark One.

He'd even almost killed the BladeBreakers.

The Dark One's voice hissed into his mind.

I am not finished with you yet, Kai. You shall pay. NOW!

Kai flinched back as the Dark One swooped toward the same place he had poisoned him-his arm.

He dove into his arm. A piercing pain jolted his body and he screamed.

Then he woke up.

He was drenched in sweat, breathing heavily. "Just a dream." He thought, shakily.

"Kai.." Ray had noticed Kai's abrupt awakening and was rubbing his eyes sleepily. "What's wrong?"

"Nothing. Just a dream. Go back to sleep."

"Really Kai, that's the-" He yawned. "-second time you've woken up...like that."

"I'm telling you, it's nothing!" Kai snapped at Ray, who flopped back down, out cold.

Kai clenched his teeth. His arm hurt. He kept rubbing it. "Jeez..why's it hurting so much?" He thought, annoyed.

Was it something to do with the dream?

"Nah, just a coincidence." He reassured himself. "Nothing more."

But as he looked at his arm, he took it back.

There was a Black Mark on his arm.

The Dark One's symbol.


"Seven O'clock right now. Hmm, nice day outside, sunny, slight chance of rain, bit windy, pretty good day to stay in bed, huh? Well, probably not, considering this is the FIRST DAY OF THE GREEK TOURNAMENT!!!!" Dizzy shrieked.

Tyson, sleeping on a bottom bunk, sat straight up, banging his head on the top bunk where Max was sleeping, who fell off on top of Ray, who was sleeping on the floor next to him, and he yelled and woke up Kai, who threw his pillow at Kenny, who was asleep on Dizzy's keyboard, waking him up.

"Ahhh, nice trick to waking the BladeBreakers up! Rise and shine!" Dizzy said.

"Did you really have to do that Dizzy? The Tournament's tonight." Kenny mumbled.

Kai's eyes widened. "Wait a minute. If it's seven o'clock, then our plane leaves in."

"AN HOUR!" Tyson yelled.

That woke everybody up all the way.

They got out of bed, got dressed and tore out of the hotel they were staying in.

Mr Dickenson was waiting outside, looking impatient. "Slept in, did we boys?" He asked the BladeBreakers.

"Sorry sir." Max mumbled.

"Let's go then! Our bus is waiting."


NG: Well, that's my beginning! It gets more interesting, don't worry!

Kai: Ooohhh, what's this funky black mark on my arm?

NG: You're just gonna have to find out!
