This fan fiction has been rattling around in my brain since the end of Season 3. I am trying my hardest to make this story as close to an actual episode as possible. It has nothing to do with my Happy Father's Day piece. Please, tell me what you think about this. Thank you. I do not own Chaotic.
Previously on Chaotic . . .
Tom visits Ancient Perim and tells Young Najarin about Dranakis Threshold. Afjak, Najarin's apprentice, overhears and, to show his master that he is a capable muge, goes there. Najarin follows Afjak to stop him, but is too late to stop the time portal from opening and watches Afjak disappear.
Meanwhile other Chaotic players learn about the Threshold's secret and begin going to Ancient Perim. Among those who learn the secret are Klay and Krystella. They find Von Bloot and plot a way to go back in time so Von Bloot can take over Perim.
Tom finds out and tells Najarin. They manage to stop Von Bloot, but Najarin is forced to destroy Dranakis Threshold in order to do it.
Back at Lake Ken-i-po, Najarin reads an old letter. The last line reads, "Your loving son, Afjak."
The UnderWorld renegades gathered at Gothos Tower. Now that Von Bloot was gone, Chaor was going to take his territory. The renegades were there to get whatever they could find and run away.
"And just what do you think you are doing?"
They turned. Von Bloot emerged from the shadows. He was covered in scratches and missing a few feathers, but he was alive.
"Do you think you are going to desert me? Me? The one who gave you refuge when Chaor declared you traitors?" There was a crazed look in Von Bloot's eyes. "No."
"Lord Von Bloot, we are glad to see that you are alive."
"Silence!" Von Bloot shouted. "You left me to die! You ran like cowards!"
A shudder of fear was felt through the group of renegades.
Von Bloot smirked. "Don't worry," he said. "I am giving you a chance to redeem yourselves."
Von Bloot began to pace. "They think they have me beaten. They think that I am dead. Ha-ha, oh, what a surprise it will be when I show up on his doorstep. He'll wish that he never destroyed Dranakis Threshold."
"That fool! Najarin!" roared Von Bloot.
Von Bloot was mad if he thought he could defeat Najarin. It could be argued that Najarin was the most powerful Creature in the OverWorld, possibly all of Perim.
"But, to attack Najarin," a soldier spoke up. "That's suicide!"
"We just need the right bait," said Von Bloot. "The human boy who's always around Chaor, his friend is in league with Najarin. Najarin favors him. He's the perfect bait." Von Bloot laughed maniacally, his laughter echoing throughout his territory.
Kaz and Tom walked through Pouril Forest. Kaz searched each tree they passed for something.
"Ugh. Kaz, remind me again why I'm here," Tom groaned.
"Because I want that scan," Kaz snapped. He reached into a tree and grabbed a fistful of nasty smelling slime. He put it into a plastic zippy bag. "And the only way I'm going to get it is if H'earing tells me where it is."
"And the only way to get H'earing to tell you is if we bring him this," Tom finished.
"Precisely," said Kaz, shaking his hand free of slime. "I think that should be enough to hold H'earing over. Let's go. I want to get that scan and get this stuff off my hand."
There was a bright light, like lightning when it flashes across the sky. It was a clear day without a cloud in the sky. Kaz and Tom looked at each other and started running in the direction of the light.
"What do you think it was?" Tom asked.
"I don't know," replied Kaz. "But I hope it's good."
They didn't have to go far before they came across a Creature laying face down in the dirt. Tom and Kaz ran over to the Creature.
"Are you okay?" Tom asked.
The Creature groaned and rolled over. Tom jumped back.
"Tom, what is it?" asked Kaz.
The Creature was male, humanoid, tall with blue skin and long dark hair. His clothes were coarse and covered with dust. He was young, about their age, maybe a little older.
Tom stared at the Creature.
"Kaz," Tom said with a slightly quivering voice, "it's Afjak."
Weren't expecting that, were you? Like I said, this one's been rattling my brain for sometime now. They really should have made an episode like this.
