Escaping to Ga'hoole
by: Terrell James
Chapter 1: Abuse by Evil
A year and a half has passed by since the events that occured after Metalbeak was killed by Soren and Kludd has become ruler at St. Aegolius Canyons, where some evil owls plan to be either Tytos or 'pickers'. Kludd looks down on all the pickers to see that they'll be commanded to evey whim. He chuckled sinisterly and makes fun of their pain and suffering. Then, suddenly Nyra comes in to see how are things going and she asked, "So, what are those pickers doing?"
Kludd repsonded, "Just going in their daily duties."
"Excellent. Time for the lessons with your Tyto students."
"I'll be there."
After she fled off, Kludd notices one of the other owls there to see if he can be one of the 'Pure Ones'. He called out, "TRAVIS!"
Suddenly, a young owl-barn owl, green-brown eyes, white-tanned fur, has multiple scars on his face, a little taller-flew up to where Kludd is and nervously asked, "Y-Yes, master?"
Kludd chuckled sinisterly and asked, "Have you ever considered being one of the Pure Ones?"
"I'm actually not up for that." he responded.
"Oh, but you must. Besides, you would not last a minute without me around."
Travis could see in his eyes that he was serious about it after being tortured and abused by since his training began, because of his resisting to be evil and dark. He sighed heavily and asked, "Why am I doing this again?"
Kludd groaned heavily and became irritated about those questions and said, "We have to have this conversation a hundred times, because I'm your master and you will do as I say!"
Hearing him answer like that made Travis flinch and was extremely scared towards Kludd and Kludd stares at him and said, "Always the weak ones."
"It's just that...I've been here for a year and a half and it seems as though you're trying to make me turn evil...when I know that I should be with the Guardians of Ga'hoole. At least they're good people, cause that's what my dad tells me in his stories."
Kludd scoffs and said, "There IS no such thing. You're starting to sound like my miserable weak brother, Soren."
"Well, he is kinda...amazing."
Kludd immediately kicks him in the face with his feet and exclaimed, "I don't want to hear anymore about Soren! JUST DO AS I SAY!"
Travis groaned softly and said, "All right, all right, all right. Anything you say."
Kludd chuckled sinisterly and said, "That's what I thought."
With that, Travis followed Kludd to Metalbeak's camp where some heavy training began. Travis was reluctant to do these things, but he wouldn't receive a beating from Kludd again, so he started to flap his wings as commanded and then do some hunting training where he has to catch a bluebird. Travis was completely forced to catch it and hunt it wherever he escapes. As the bluebird flew away, Travis flew across the sky to chase that little birdbird. The faster it got away, the more faster Travis went to catch it and when he almost got it, he lifted his feet to catch it and caught it between his toes.
He then flew back to Kludd and see that he actually caught it. He was impressed to see that he's useful for his training. He chuckled and said, "Excellent work, Travis. A few more training practice runs and you'll be guaranteed to be the 'Pure Ones'."
"Can I let it go now?" asked Travis.
He lets go of the bluebird as it flies away from there. Travis sighed heavily and flies away and then, Kludd said, "Where do you think you're going?"
Travis groaned and flew back to his presence and answered, "Back to the nest."
"No, you will not. Like it or not, this is home, whether you like it or not."
"I'd perfer not."
Kludd got into Travis' face and asked, "Wanna say that again?"
"Not?" Travis asked, nervously.
Enraged, Kludd grabs Travis between his wings and takes him to the other side of St. Aggie's and scratches him in the face, strangled his heck, punched him and slammed his head down hard on the ground. Travis tries to get up and leave, but Kludd caught him by the legs ans dragged him to where he is. He tries resisting, but Kludd's force was too strong to even escape. He then beats him up and bashes his head with a branch from off a tree and then, he calls out some bats to do some harm to him.
Travis became very frightened to see the bats again as they flew over him and scratch him and bite him, claw him and all Kludd could do is just watch as he Travis receives excruciating pain.
Travis starts screaming in pain as the bats attack him and within two minutes, Kludd told him, "Unless you don't want to be dead, you might as well do as I say!"
"I'd rather be with the Guardians than being here!" Travis exclaimed.
"They're just stupid stories! They do not exist! I'm sensing a weakling here!"
The bats continue to harm Travis and some blood came out of his face and he keeps groaning in pain. He was fed up with it and said, "Okay, okay. I'll do whatever you say. Just get them off me!"
Kludd chuckled sinisterly and ordered the bats out of the way and they flew away. Travis became injured and harmed by and Kludd told him, "You did a good thing. Maybe you're not as useless as I thought you were."
"Why is it that whenever you say you won't hurt me, you eventually do?" asked Travis.
"It's just my way to tell you 'don't be weak'. I've put up with you for a year and already you still have some training to do to rule the world."
Nyra comes in and said, "You might as well listen to Kludd. You're lucky that you have a family here, so if you ever plan to escape, that will never happen."
Travis panted heavily and fears both Nyra and Kludd for their plans to change Travis into the 'Pure Ones' for evil purposes. He knew that if leaves, he'll be receiving more torments from Kludd for the rest of his life and Kludd knows that. But also, if he stays, no harm will come to him and he'll grant more training.
Nyra stares at him and said, "Might as well get some rest. Because you will receive more."
Kludd took Travis into the other side where the moon is shining, knowing that he'll get 'moon-blinked' again. He chuckled sinisterly and said, "Good night."
Fearing that he might fell asleep, he wanted to keep awake to avoid getting moon-blinked again. As the hours went by, Travis was fed up with living this way and deserves something better. So, he quietly walked out of the moon and went into the darkness of the night and wandered into Grimble's library. Somehow, he seems to find out that he needs to escape from St. Aggie's as soon as possible.
All of a sudden, a white light has shown above Travis' head and sees that a spirit of Grimble became present. He turns around and sees that it is Grimble's spirit. Grimble looked at Travis and said, "You remind me of Soren. I see that you've avoided being moon-blinked several times."
"Yeah, I have. How'd you know?" asked Travis.
"Same thing happened before Nyra killed me. Soren and his friend, Gylfie, wanted to escape from St. Aggie's and headed to the Great Tree."
Travis froze and asked, "The Great Tree?"
"I see you want to leave behind this place to see the Guardians of Ga'hoole."
"Yes, I do."
"Can you fly?"
"Let me see what you can do."
Travis flapped his wings and went higher and higher as ever before and went around the library, which impressed Grimble a lot. It's like he's training to fly without being abused by, even if it's late at night.
"How'd I do?"
"Good job. You still have to leave behind this place and head to the Great Tree and you'll find yourself at home there."
Travis sighed heavily and said, "I would if I could, but I can't."
"And why not?"
"Because Kludd and Nyra will literally kill me if I ever left there and I don't want to end up...dead."
"Soren and Gylfie made an escape through that place and they made it there. If they made it Ga'hoole, you can too."
For a long time, Travis has been living in fear of Kludd's every whim and his constant abuse. And hearing it from someone who's been doing their dirty work for Metalbeak and sacrificed his life to get Soren and Gylfie out of St. Aggie's became powerful for him. He soon realized that he's not where he should be, so he knows that if he leaves, there's no turning back.
He turned to Grimble's spirit and said, "I think I'll take your word for it. I know the Guardians of Ga'hoole really does exist."
"Yes, it does."
"I'm getting out of here and find this place."
"That's the spirit! Now go!"
Suddenly, Grimble's spirit faded away and Travis knew that he has spent his last day at St. Aggie's and he's gonna fly away and escape and never come back.
Hope this is an interesting one! Please read and review!
