chapter 4 - part 2

chapter 4 (part 2) - triple trouble

And so, after 9 months of eating durians and nothing else... Denise of course, put on a lot of weight as time flew by... It was soon the time for her labor... Denise was very scared of the pain as of course, she was born into a RICH family and never suffered much in her whole life, until now...
It was in the middle of a hot Sunday afternoon, and Denise was goring her face in durians, when she suddenly felt an acute pain in her stomach. The pain was unbearable to Denise, who started shrieking her head off. Arthur rushed into the room immediately, asking, “What’s wrong?”
“The baby... Its coming!” She screamed!
“Fetch the Royal Doctor! Quick! THE QUEEN IS IN LABOR!” Arthur shouted to the servants...
The Royal Doctor rushed to the Queen’s room directly to help with the labor, along with a midwife.
After a long and arduous period of labor, the Queen finally gave birth to three children. Two boys and a girl. Jacob, Edward and Reina.
Arthur was elated with the birth of his children, and spread news of their birth far and wide. Which meant it got into the hands of a small group of rebels who hated the peace in the country.
“Heh heh heh... Looks like the King has some little brats... Its time to kill them off...” The leader of the rebels, Hakeem said. “Who volunteers?”
A single dark shadow walked forward towards Hakeem, and mummered, “I’ll go...”
“Well then, my trusted assassin... Bring me good news of their death... May the darkness be with your swiftness...”
The dark figure left the room and proceeded to make preparations...

who was the dark figure? FIND OUT IN PART 3 of chapter 4!

Chapter 4 - triple trouble (part one)

Chap 4 (part one) - Triple Trouble

And so, Arthur started telling the Royal Doctor, “Get me the BEST herbs! I don’t care how much they cost! Your budget is increased!”
The Royal Doctor’s face lit up like a light bulb when he heard that his money resources was not a problem now. He started ranting off a long list of tonics... “Birds Nest, Deer’s Antlers, 1000-year old Ginseng, etc...”
After a long list of two hundred and sixty-seven tonics, the Royal Doctor wrote a check for the King. It read, “2000000 US dollers.” Arthur’s eyes bulged out at the amount, but for the sake of the Queen, he decided to pay the Royal Doctor.
“Wait...” The Queen’s still weak voice floated out... “I don’t think I can stomach all this weird tonics. Please Arthur, just a few bird nests and some ginseng will do...”
Not wanting to agitate the Queen, the King told the Royal Doctor, “You heard what she said. This should be within the budget I gave you.”
The Royal Doctor’s hopes were dashed as fast as they had came. But because he was in front of the King, he had no choice but to keep a straight face and nodded and smiled cheerfully.
A whole month passed, and the Royal Knights were better, though they were not fully recovered yet. But that is in another part of the story. This chapter is focused on something else.
As I said, a month had passed, and the Queen was getting tired of eating tonics everyday and not being able to keep most of them in, which meant frequent visits to the bathroom. And on top of that, Denise was not eating much, which worried Arthur very much. He went to Denise, after she said that she did not feel up to dinner.
“What’s wrong darling? You look very pale, and you don’t eat anything. You are worrying me, you know.”
“I’m so sorry Arthur, I just wanted to eat something, but then I didn’t want you to go through all that trouble to get it for me...”
“What is it? Name it, and I shall get it for you, I promise...”
“I want... The durians you got for me when we went to another country...”
“WHAT!!! THATS LIKE SO FAR AWAY!!!” Arthur thought in his mind. But for the sake of the Queen, he had to summon his best men and assign them to fetch the durians from the faraway land, and whoever got it first would be rewarded greatly.
Three days passed, five, a week... There was no news yet and Denise was eating lesser and lesser everyday. The Royal Doctor could not make her eat anything. Whatever was eaten was vomited out...
But after 10 days from the day he had dispatched his men, one of his men came back with a small bundle of durians. “huff... puff... King, the rest is on the way. I feared that the Queen could not wait, and so I rushed to the castle first.

chap 3 (part one) - end

Chapter 3 - joy to the world (actually, its just king arthur.)

Chapter 3 - joy to the world (actually, its just king arthur.)
After the trouble was over, another one rose. The Queen had fainted! King Arthur was distraught and yet he could not stay by the Queen’s side as he had to clean up the mess, as well as find his friends who had risked their lives to protect the country. A huge search team with him inside was instantly mobilised to search for the Royal Knights.
“I don’t care what you do, or what you use, find the Royal Knights soon. I fear that the extent of their injuries maybe too severe and may not last much longer...”
Isaac and Ilya were found first. They had their whole skin burnt, and were seriously dehydrated. Next was Mitchel, who was in a much worse state. Then Reuven, both of them had lost a lot of blood. But the worst was Wei Kang, who’s whole body was almost crushed if not for his machine that sheltered him. But hardest to find was Jun Hui, who was trapped under a pile of debris. All were sent to the Royal Hospital to undergo extensive treatment.
“Looks like this is over at last... Some measure of peace...” King Arthur told himself as he went back to the castle. When he went into the Queen’s room, the maid that was on duty was smiling gleefully, as if a wonderful joy had happened, and not a bad one. This puzzled the King very much as he advanced towards her bad, where the Royal Doctor was waiting...
“What’s wrong with her? Tell me, Doctor, what’s wrong?” Arthur asked in a panicked voice.
“The Royal Doctor tried to hide his amusement from the King but the King was not fooled.
“Tell me, or I shall BEHEAD YOU INSTANTLY!” the King roared.
Though he was a Royal Doctor, he really did not fancy getting chopped up into pieces. But before he could answer, Denise’s faint voice floated out... “Arthur..., its not a bad thing... I am,” there was a short pause. “pregnant.”
The anger on Arthur’s face vanished immediately and was replaced with one of extreme jubilance. “WOO HOO (sounds very childish) I AM GOING TO BE A FATHER!!” (Angels’ chorus in the background.

Thus, I conclude chap 3. though it may be short. This is because I do not want to bring extreme distress to some people.

chap 3 - end

Chapter 2 - a savior in times of need.

chap 2 - a savior in times of need
“Is this the end?” Arthur clasped his hand around his neck, and felt something hanging on it. He took the chain out. It was his father amulet.
“This... this is father’s amulet...” Arthur went back to the day of his coronation.
“Son, you’re finally king. Father has one last gift to give you before I leave the kingdom to you...” So Arthur had taken the amulet from his father, and remembered his father’s words...
“This was a gift from the gods as a reward on keeping this country safe. They said to use it in times of great disaster. I hope that you will keep it and not use it, may the gods bless you.”
“This amulet... I can use it...” He told Denise.
They held their hands, clasped around the amulet, and recited:
“At Tara in this fateful hour,
I place heaven with all its power,
And the sun with its brightness,
And the snow with its whiteness,
And the fire with all the strength it hath,
And the lightning with its rapid wrath,
And the winds with their swiftness along their path,
And the sea with its deepness,
And the rocks with their steepness,
And the earth with its starkness,
All this I place,
By the gods almighty help and grace,
Between myself and the powers of darkness!”
(adapted from a swiftly tilting planet by Madeleine L’engle)
There was a huge flash of light, followed by a loud “CRACK!” The King and Queen closed their eyes and hoped that what ever was happening was good.
When the light dimmed, and the smoke cleared, they saw a huge figure rising (dramatic music) to face the monster.
“Who summons me? I am APPOLOW! the god of the sun, and I am here to vanquish the terrible evil!”
He was answered by the monster smashing his fist into Appolow’s face. “BULK DISLIKE GOD!” Appolow just went “ooff!”
“I see, this is the monster that I have been called to conquer. Seriously indeed, why not earlier? This is a servant of Kronos, and mere mortals cannot kill it easily.” Appolow took out his giant sword from his halberd and thrust it towards the monster. The monster caught the blade by it tip and grunted in effort of the god’s strength as he was pushed back. “BULK ANGRY!” It shouted, as it prepared for another energy beam. “Uh oh”
Appolow said, as the monster unleashed its fearsome attack at close range.
God as he was, he was still flung back by the impact of the beam, even if he had escaped unscathed. “Guess I’ll have to use this.” He told himself. Reaching into his armor, he retrieved a large piece of metal, with ancient inscriptions written on it.
“By the power of Zeus,
I command thee to return to thee’s foul lair,
By order of Poseidon,
I order thee to remain locked,
By command of Hades,
I order thee to stay under his power!”
A gap in the sky opened, and it started sucking everything around it up. “NOOOOOO!!!” The monster tried to grab onto something, but the suction was too great. He was sucked into the vortex, which closed with a great big “SLURP!”
Arthur and Denise relaxed. The worst was over. Suddenly, Denise fainted in Arthur’s arms.
Or is it?

Chap 2 - end

all character’s are purely fictional, and this is brought to you by your friendly student writer, jun hui.

Chapter 1

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, there lived a king named Arthur. He was a good king, and the country prospered over his reign. But all that changed in one day.
On that day, ominous clouds brewed over the country, and there was thunder and lightning all over the country. Arthur was fretting on his throne. There had been recent reports of a monster making his way through the country, destroying entire villages and killing people. All efforts to stop it were unsuccessful. The monster was now nearing the castle, and Arthur was mustering all his forces against this terrible evil.
Just then, Queen Denise walked in and saw her husband’s face creased with worry lines. In an effort to comfort him, she asked, “What’s wrong dear?”
Arthur answered in a deflated tone, “The country is doomed, a monster is going to destroy us all. We’re doomed.”
Naturally, Denise was an optimistic person, and did not approve of her husband’s pessimism.
“You are NOT giving up! We still have the Royal Knights! Call for them!”
Arthur lightened up a bit at the thought. “Summon the Royal Knights!”
Soon, the whole group of the Royal Knights was assembled in the throne room. There was Wei Kang the Mechanist, Ilya the Beast Tamer, Reuven the Marksman, Jun Hui the Grand Wizard, Isaac the Behemoth and Mitchel the Gladiator.
“We are facing an impending disaster, and you are our only hope in overcoming this crisis.” Arthur told them solemnly. They nodded their heads, knowing how much rested on their shoulders.
They broke up into two-man groups, Ilya with Isaac, Reuven with Mitchel, and Wei Kang with Jun Hui.
The first group to meet the monster was Isaac and Ilya.
“GOSH! THIS THING IS HUGE!” Ilya exclaimed. Even Isaac had to agree, as big as he was. Unfortunately for them, the monster saw them first, and bellowed. “BULK HUNGRY!” The bellow was so strong that it uprooted the trees around them, and Ilya had to hold on to his dear life on Isaac, and even Isaac was almost blown away.
“I summon thee, the animals of the air! Aid me against this evil” Ilya shouted once he had recovered. Birds, insects and all sort of aerial lifeforms started to gather around the monster, created a huge current of wind, but the monster held its ground.
“Looks like it needs some persuasion.” Isaac muttered. He walked over to the nearest oak tree and uprooted it. Holding it like a javelin, he took aim at the monster, and threw it. Even though the monster was gigantic, he still could not ignore a direct hit from an oak tree in his face. He roared in anger. “BULK ANGRY!” The monster started swatting the animals with his meaty hands. Animals were dropping left right centre, and the ones that survived kept their distance from the monster or escaped. The veil of animals had lifted and the monster could see Ilya and Isaac clearly.
“oh no. run.” Ilya told Isaac in a flat voice as he saw the energy beam that was being created in the monster’s mouth. Isaac saw the beam too, and he did not need to be told twice. He started galloping at full speed across the forest, but the trees in the forest blocked him and seriously hampered his speed. He could not avoid the beam. It tore through the forest like a hedge trimmer, leaving behind a half mile long burn streak in the forest. Ilya and Isaac was in it, both burnt down, and both had sustained heavy injuries. They could neither move nor speak as they lapsed into unconsciousness.
Reuven and Mitchel saw the scene of devastation from Reuven’s giant eagle. “Let’s go quickly to help them!” Mitchel told Reuven. The eagle swooped down to the scene as Reuven unloaded arrow after arrow on the monster. Bomb or electric, they had not much effect on the monster, just irritating it. The moment the eagle was in range, the monster suddenly jumped up and made a grab for the eagle. Reuven and Mitchel, seeing disaster, quickly tried to avoid the grab by commanding the eagle to swoop down drastically to avoid it. “AHHHHH!!!” Reuven shouted as they hurtled straight towards the hard ground.
“PULL UP! PULL UP!” Mitchel yelled in Reuven’s ear. They were racing down the length of the monster now, and its hand was reaching out to grab them. Mitchel knew what he had to do. “Thanks Reuven.” He leapt off the eagle, took out his sword, and lunged towards the monster. The monster had to protect itself, so instead of going after Reuven, it went after Mitchel. The meaty hand slammed into Mitchel at full force and speed. “ooof!” Mitchel heard bones being crushed as he fell down and into unconsciousness......
Reuven saw Mitchel slam into the ground with blood spattering everywhere. “YOU THING! HOW DARE YOU...” Reuven raged, “I AM SO GONNA MURDER YOU!!!”
Reuven took out his best bow and best arrows. “DIE!!!” he screamed, shooting heavy artillery arrows, plasma arrows, grenade arrows, static arrows, arrows that all brought certain doom to people. It seemed to have little effect on the monster, who had a shockingly thick skin, and was really pissing Reuven off. Soon, Reuven was down to his last arrow, a gift from his father. “Use it only at close range, son.” That was what his father had told him. Reuven was driven so mad with grief and rage that he charged with his eagle directly at the monster, not caring what would have had happened. The monster just casually swatted away the eagle before Reuven was able to shoot.
As Reuven hurtled through the air, he thought, “Dad, I failed...” He slammed into a tall tree and spurt blood out of his mouth as he made a dent in the tree. “Sorry...” were the last few words he muttered...
The last group could hear the battle go on as they advanced on land. Wei Kang was in his new rocket launcher ship he made specially for this, while Jun Hui was standing on a current of wind. Both made swift progress through the forest.
“God.” Wei Kang muttered as they entered the battlezone. Fires were raging out of control. “What is this?” Jun Hui said, still in shock as he controlled water to douse out the fires. “BULK HAPPY! BULK SMASH BAD BIRD!” “Bird?” Both of them said. “Oh no! Reuven!!!” Wei Kang realised and started to search for him. “No time. This means that Reuven has lost. We must waste no time trying to stop this monster.” Jun Hui stopped him. “I’m sure Reuven would understand.” Wei Kang could not help but agree. He nodded and they both tried to move through the path of destruction to where the monster was standing.
“Ugh, he smells.” Wei Kang spat as they neared. “Lemme take a shot at him.” He took out his rocket launcher, and before Jun Hui could stop him, he shot a rocket at the monster. The rocket trailed all the way and hit the monster with a loud “BANG!” as it hit its target. The monster bellowed in pain and turned around, looking for the thing that caused it pain. His searching eyes found the duo easily, as Wei Kang unleashed a barrage of rockets at him and Jun Hui hurled chunks of rocks at it.
The monster started to destroy the projectiles one by one with his right hand, while blocking the rocks with his left. It looked as pissed off as much as any monster could get. “oh.” Wei Kang was surprised that his calculations had failed. He pretty much predicted that he could down the monster with that barrage. “RUN!” Jun Hui screamed at him, breaking him out of his thoughts. He saw the monster’s foot reach towards him, and thought that it the end. “Oh well.” Wei Kang let out his sigh as the foot slammed down with a loud “CRUNCH”.
“Darn it, now Wei Kang is down. I presume the others are too.” Jun Hui said to himself as he gathered all the energy he had for a last attack on the monster. “Thats one tough piece of meat to burn. Wonder if fire hurts him.” Mustering all his strength, he created a hugh ball of flames and threw it at the monster, praying that it would do some damage.
Sadly, it did nothing. The monster’s tail just whacked a piece of debris towards him. Jun Hui made no attempt to escape as he was too tired and had no more energy in him. The body flew ten feet in the air before landing with a sickening “THUD!”
Arthur overlooked all this in his flying zeppelin. “Even the Royal Knights failed...” Denise muttered. IS THIS THE END? chap 1 - end
