My special thanks, to TheGorya, aka Shadow, for helping complete a story that has spanned nearly two years. ❤

CharlotteCarrendar: – The scenery at the highest part of Fjelding mountains was simply spectacular. Few humans or creatures of the underworld, had ventured this far, this high above Nemeaus. The jungle was an array of wildlife, plants of every known species, and some that had never been recorded before. The birdsong that swept down from the tops of the trees, added to the ambiance. The group, which in the beginning on the Trek had been much larger, was now down to a handful, that had set out from Lorewall so long ago, to right the balance. Charlotte’s children were happy, for the first time in a long time. The freedom to be free from the treacherous tunnels and dangerous beasts that lurked within, and now the Jade Emperor Temple was virtually in sight. From high above, they could hear the sounds of the four river dragons, that had protected the body of the boy since he was sent up to the Temple for the final rites. The doorway from Nemaues to the next life, lay within the temple, that the boy’s body lay upon. Charlotte had a bounce in her step as she walked along, feeling so alive, even though what lay ahead, was the greatest test of all. Were they truly ready? <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan traveled with the group seeing that was a lot more life to this jungle than he thought when first showing up here. His mind still racing with the conversation that was between him and Fung Le he was a bit nervous about finding the temple. They had followed the spider monkey that had helped them this far. He looked over to Charlotte as she was excited about being free from the tunnels of the mountain. He still saw she was wearing both the necklace of his friendship as well as the keep sake that was left from Shadow. He smiled a bit seeing that even the twins still wore there’s as well. He walked forward still with the group still unsure what would happen when they got there. Weather there was another test….. he still believed he was ready for anything. As they traveled towards the temple itself.-

-Previously on Trek-

The dizzying heights of the Summit of Fjeliding was the destination of all the trekkers that were now gathering just across the street from the Garden of Lorewall. But we now look up to the temple mount. In amongest the tallest trees, the spire like turrets of this ancient building, which was covered in vines, and moss still stands out against the green of the jungle forest. Within the clearing, there are the four dragon kings of the rivers. The same ones that had brought the body of the boy, from the Garden of Solitude in Fung Le’s household ground. The Heilongjian(Black Dragon), the Huanghe (Yellow Dragon), the Changjiang (Long Dragon), and the Zhujiang (Pearl Dragon). With their wings folded, each stood in a straight line, but the Yellow dragon, Huanghe held in his arms the body of the boy. Cradling him as he crept into the large temple. (Huanghe)”Banana leaves, Zhujaing, bring them so I may place the boy’s body on them.” Huffing, the pearl dragon turned, its large tail swishing out and spraying up leaf litter, as it sort to rip the banana leaves off the very trees, to be used as bedding upon the tomb within the temple. Changiang looked to the sky, and then his look became serious.

(Changiang)”Kohryu and Ximu Lu, they must come soon. The ritual must be preformed or all hope for the humans is lost, Brothers.”- Heilongijan looked instead to the far east and then…he saw them. (Heilongijan)”Brothers. Great ships. Look!”- He growled and then when Zhujaing had taken the banana leaves to the Yellow dragon, and the boy’s body was laid carefully on top of the tomb, they both emerged, the four dragons standing and staring up to the shapes of the great ships of the Imperium of Man in the Far eastern citys. The swarms of drop pods were raining down from the heavens and all of the dragon’s roared in protest, the wings exploding out from their backs, large sharpened claws raking at the sky. Dull explosions could be heard due to the distance, the horizon turning red with the flames of many a fire. The cities on fire. (Changjiang)”They kill the humans? Why?” His head swung round and looked back to the boy’s body in the temple.

The pearl dragon roared. (Zhujiang)”WE MUST BRING THE RAINS…STOP THE FIRES..SAVE THE PEOPLE!” The Black Dragon was conflicted and protested. (Heilongjian)”We are to guard the body of the boy. You know this, Brother.” At this moment, the sound of cackling laughter is heard as dark shapes leap from tree to tree. Small, brown, furry, with long tails and comical faces. Fifty or so of the creatures, chittering and playing, unaware of the anger of the Four Dragon kings. The Yellow Dragon’s eyes spotted one, a light coloured spider monkey, that leapt from a nearby tree and landed on the stone steps of the Temple. (Jazi)”Ooo Ooo Ooo. We care for boy…Dragons save people. Oo Oo Oo”- The monkey all skittered out, leaping and dancing as they hung from many a tree and across the temple. Another loud explosion far in the East and the Dragons all decided there and then. The Pearl dragon picked up Jazi by her tail and she hung upside down, wiggling her fingers merrily at him. (Zhujiang)”You do not harm body…We will return.”- The monkey swang back and forth, her large eyes oogling at the monstrous Pearl Dragon. (Jazi)”Brothers and Sisters care for temple. Ooo Ooo Ooo. But you need to let go of tail. Ooo Oo Ooo.”- Zhujiang simply let go of the monkey and all the other spider monkeys laughed as Jazi landed on her head. Sitting up, the cheeky monkey was crosseyed and obviously seeing stars, before falling back in the leaf litter, that all went ~poof~ into the air.

Each of the dragons roared loudly as they took off one after the other, flying up into the very clouds. This was their domain, and it was then the sound of thunder could be heard, as the dragons swooped in and out, before they flew to the sea, scooped up water in their mouths, and then flew back into the sky, where they sprayed the water out over the clouds. The four dragons flew back and forth, making the sky dark all around. Before long the sea water became rain pouring down from the sky. Back at the temple, the pitter patter of rain, had many a spider monkey wet to the skin and dancing, frolicking in the puddles and Jazi finally got up and slapped her hands together. (Jazi)”Ooo…Ooo. Brothers and Sisters…Great danger comes.”- All the monkeys chorused in their calls, Jazi skittering inside the temple and leapt up onto the tomb, where the body of the boy lay. She then sat on his tummy, and closed her eyes. Meditating. Waiting…. ::

And now….

CharlotteCarrendar : -The Dragons had waited, with the spider monkey as the protectors, while the Dragons showered the world with their rains, in an effort to put out the fires of war. War that continued to rage, as the Balance was out of whack. High above, they could see the glistening columns of the Temple, that stood out against the greenery of the forest canopy. In the distance, the roar of the rour dragons. They knew the great one was coming and at last the prophecy would be fulfilled. But this is not an easy road traveled, for just when you think you have made it, there is a twist that will leave you gasping. Charlotte heard the mighty power of the dragons, as the clouds swirled and changed, from white and fluffy, to dark and stormy. A sign of things to come. <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan heard the four dragons roars. His first that of something much different that what it was until he felt the power coming from them. His shot open wider than normal as his hand clinched. The last time he ever saw a dragon was not something he would say was wondrous. The dragon he saw last was Shadow’s father in this he was not happy to see back then. Now that he was in the forest as he looked up to see the pillars of the temple was something else. He looked to Charlotte as he smirked.- “well it seems we are here. However doesn’t seem like it sight we will get ti enjoy. If we don’t hurry.” -Conan saw the clouds swirl as he thought about it wasn’t good. He really didn’t want to know what was coming but his own idea was he was soon going to find out.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar: – “Are they dragons?” Seven asked his mother, almost incredulous to even imagine that they existed. The funniest part of this was that the Golden dragon, the Master of the Sun, had been with them every step of the way. It was he, who had identified, Charlotte as Zhu. It was he that had saved Atriz from the temple that her father had imprisoned her in. It was he that helped the Shadow wolf hold his form long enough, to keep the promise that they would be together again, when the petals fall. Fung Le was the key, the architect and the one, that summoned all to be part of the Trek, in the very beginning, and now it was coming to its end. The jungle appeared to ease back with the marble steps now coming into view from the never ending sea of green. The Spider monkey chittered excitedly, and danced on a few steps, so close now to home. “Quickly!” the monkey chattered, as a rolling of thunder is heard. <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan heard seven pop out about the Dragons as he didn’t know they existed yet Conan knew that things are not as they seem. To him something wasn’t right as the monkey was trying to get them run. Conan quickly followed the group that was moving with the monkey the sound of thunder was heard even for Conan’s ears that sound was more than just thunder it was a sign as he looked to the sky seeing the different types of dragons as they roared in flight. He noticed something different about them . They were in fact different types, though he had quickly shrugged off the thought of them it was just something that happens to him. He was indeed about to find out what is going on.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar: – “Yes, Seven, they are.” Charlotte replied, having remembered them. How they broke free from the fountain of tears, and had taken the body of the boy to the Temple, on the instruction of Fung Le. Charlotte glanced back at him as they walked along. Did she dare tell her son, of Fung Le, the Master? No, now was not the time. Picking up pace, Charlotte quickened her step, feeling her heart beating faster. They were so close, so close. Finally, the group made it out of the dense jungle to a large clearing. Atriz and Shadow wolf walked out slowly, and you could see the cat looked nervous. The tree. It was an blossom tree, and its leaves so bright, so many, had yet to fall. Then from above, the great dragons started to land, one after the other. The Heilongjian(Black Dragon), the Huanghe (Yellow Dragon), the Changjiang (Long Dragon), and the Zhujiang (Pearl Dragon). The very trees were blown back as each came in, and swooped over all that were assembled, and this did frighten the children, though they were awe struck by their majesty and size. <3>

*

TheGorya: -As hearing Charlotte telling Seven about the dragons he only could think of weather they were friend or foe. The group had made it from the jungle and into a clearing as all the dragons landed as the force of wind was great Conan looked to everyone instantly as he said.- “Are you all ok?” -he turned his attention to the dragons that landed as he placed his hand on the hilt of his blade with his left hand on the sheath pushing the blade out ready to defend if need be. The trees had blown back as he stood his ground not sure if they were going to attack from the ground. He clinched his jaw unsure of what to do.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar:- Fung Le stepped forward, though still in the guise of a human, and the four River dragons all bowed their heads in a ceremonial fashion. Honouring him for finally arriving as he said he would. He could have flown himself, all that time ago, but he knew it was best to walk in the footsteps of his fellows, and through the journey, they would take part in a Trek of self discovery. “Long time we have waited, my Brothers. I know you have all been patient, and you will be rewarded, I promise you this.” Looking back at Conan, Fung Le shook his head. “They are not the ones you should fear…my Friend.” It was a warning, but for what? <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan shot his eyes as Fung Le stepped forward in front of him. He watched him as he spoke to them and one word spoke out in all of them “brothers” Conan quickly started to pick apart of everything that Fung Le spoke about. The knowledge of the labyrinth the knowledge of how to get through everything that they have endured. He clinched his jaw tighter as Fung Le turned to him. He let go of his blade as he stood straight up firm as he looked at Fung Le.- “So when you say that. I guess so that means you are a dragon as well Fung Le……. am I wrong?” -he figured it out with ease of course with the statement he made and the way he spoke it was like he reigned over the other dragons. As if he was the leader in the same way Conan wasn’t mad nore was he happy. He still left in the dark.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar:- “You are not wrong, Conan. How many times have I said, that everything is not what it seems?” Charlotte had decided to stand in front of her children, since she knew that their natural curiousity could do them harm. Large dragons versus spider demon children, was not a good match up. Fung Le tilted his head, and then followed with; “There is so much, I wish I had had the chance to tell you. I do.” But right at that moment, there was terrible dark laughter, and it came from within the temple itself. A tall being brought out the spider monkey, Jazi that had been guarding the boy. The body of the spider monkey was thrown at the feet of Conan, and the being laughed again. “You left the guardian in the hands of a Monkey? You are more foolish than even I had imagined!” Charlotte spun around, and her jaw fell. The Kng…the King with no name. The one spoken of by Taru…the one that held more power in the mountains, than even the young Queen. “I see you got out of my tunnels, and my labryinth. Still pissed off about that.” he pointed at Charlotte. “And I had such high hopes for the like of you, Zhu. Why couldn’t you keep on slaying those Gnolls, instead of turning back into a loving mummy.”: The King was dressed impecably in a black leather suit, his hair dark and slicked back. Fine white skin, and the redness of circles that rimmed his eyes. He had twin katanas, and he was not alone. Suddenly fire erupted on various points around the temple, as he summoned his observers. “Fools….to think I would let you near the boy.” <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan looked down for a moment as Fung Le spoke as he said.- “you are right Fung Le about things not being what they seem…” -his eyes shot up as he looked at Fung Le hearing the other statement. Conan saw in the corner of his eyes Charlotte getting in front of the kids to protect them. He knew something was wasn’t right it had seemed to quiet. Until a being walked out clothed in black speaking to Charlotte. It took Conan moments to see the monkey at his feet then quickly taking his hand back onto his blade as he listened to the man. Then hearing the name he didn’t want to hear again after Fung Le spoke about. Looking over to Charlotte as he didn’t want anything to happen to her. His eyes now drawn back to the clothing being he said to the person.- “Your one to talk. I don’t think you really understand of what your going up against….” -Conan was cocky at this point however he didn’t care his gut was telling him that a battle was about to beginning here. He feared for friends more than anything he was willing to fight for them. -gripping his sword his eyes started to pierce at the black clothed as if he was already planing out his own moves. Which was the truth Conan was in fact planning his own tactics ahead if needed with even adding others as back up. Conan saw the engulfing of flames in several points of the temple his own tactics were changing by the minute.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar:- The King with no name, threw back his head and laughed loudly, as the flames were actually forming into demons, that wore black the same as the King, only they looked more like ninjas. The only parts of their faces that could be seen were their eyes. There was at least fifteen all told. He directed his attention at Conan now and waggled his finger. “And I don’t think YOU know what you are up against. Do you even know why this world is at War…huh? CHAOS of course. Glorious…Fantabulous, Chaos. And that is the way its going to stay. So long as I have the boy, in this temple, and he remains right where he is….then the balance will never be shifted back.” Coming out from behind Charlotte’s children, two of the demons grabbed both Seven and Luna, holding them at knife point, while the dragons all roared in anger. Charlotte screamed when she saw what they had done. “Let them go!” She cried out, as Fung Le looked up at the blossom tree. The very first petals…started to fall. <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan growled listening the vile thing speaking to him his words were absolute poison nothing more than that. Conan noticed the flames were in fact summoning of demons as he looked around seeing so many. He shot his eyes hearing the screams of Charlotte. As the demons held both Seven and Luna at knife point Conan smirked as he saw the pendants around the children neck as Conan spoke.- “Howl of protection…..” -The wolf head on each of the pendants that the children wore began to glow lifting form there chest as beams of bright light shot out. The sounding of the pendants was in fact loud of grand wolf howling. The light was shot out and started form as they touched the demons skin. In seconds the light began to form into something. At first it wasn’t clear of what it was that was forming as it formed into a wolf’s head and bite down on the demons hand as it the two pure white light wolfs growled at the demons holding on the hand that was holding them at knife point. Both of the wolves started to form a body with an illuminating bodies as if they were in fact protectors. The wolfs were no small things standing at last ten feet of the ground. Both of them growled once more as their paws pressed the ground as they both bite down on the entire arm of each of the demons. Conan looked at Fung Le for a moment then back at the children as he smirked. Conan laughed a bit as he turned to the man at in black.- “You wont harm anyone today.” -Conan drew his katana as he pointed straight at the man as he growled. The sounding of the sword seem to make the wolves growled and become more fierce than when they appeared as they started to feast on the demons.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar: – The demons roared in anger as the pendants worn by the children showed their true power. Unde the calling of Conan, the very heads of the pendants that were wolves, came from the powerful glow out of each one. Seven and Luna were bathed in the light, that had Charlotte spinning around, and she was shocked to see that Conan’s protection was actually working. The King with no name growled angrily, but he was not done, not by a long shot. “Very clever….CONAN….but not clever enough. For nothing here is what it seems. You don’t think I forsaw this. Oh but I did!” Swirling up from the ground, more warriors, these made from the very earth, like moulding out of clay. “Chaos is on my side….and its winning!” he roared. Fung Le watched as more petals started to fall from the blossom tree. It was time. “ZHU…THE JADE NECKLACE…USE IT…USE IT NOW!” Charlotte remembered she still wore it around her neck, and reached in her shirt, pulling it out and then placing the simple circle of jade with the hollow in ithe middle in her mouth. “USE IT ZHU…CALL THE EMPEROR!!” Charlotte then closed her eyes, and started to speak, the strange sounds that came through the jade necklace, sounded like she was standing in a wind tunnel, and all the dragons roared in triumph, as the clouds above started to explode with lightning and thunder. “KEEP GOING ZHU!” Charlotte’s hair was whipping around her, as the ground was giving up more of the King’s warriors. <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan could see that his very protection was working as he said to the wolves made of pure and light.- “Keep them safe.” -the demons already torn to spreads howled out to the sound of Conan’s voice. He quickly turned his attention the demons as they started to rise from the clay itself. Conan walked forward stepping in front of Fung Le as he clashed his foot onto the ground as the sound from his foot through a sound wave across the demons in front of him as it would cut through them as they started to rise.- “did you for see that one?” -the wolves were attacking all other demons around Seven and Luna as they stood between anything in front of them. Conan heard Charlotte Chanting as he didn’t like that fact she was called such a name, however this wasn’t the time nore the place too speak up. As Conan started charging through as he swung his blade clashing through a demon. He was heading straight for the king. His thoughts were to end this game he was playing. As he ran towards the no name king Conan was quickly starting to pick up speed slashing through anything in his way.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar;- The skies started to change, from the darkness, to having the very clouds turn a strange shade of green. The light that poured down, hit not Charlotte, and not Conan, but the light reached the two most unlikely. The blossom tree was losing its petals, they were finally failling. The white cat, Atriz and the Shadow wolf, started to lift off the ground, as their bodies were engulfed in a strange aura. The King snarled as the blossoms of white and red were falling to the ground. Part of the prophecy was happening as Conan raced at the King, with his sword slaghing through the earth made warriors that were in his path. Seven cried out. “LOOK!” The children watched on, with wide eyes, as Charlotte continued to chant, and then a burst of light rained down and struck both the shadow demon and the cat, as they both transformed into their human selves, for the first time in over five hundred years. The sword girl of Suzhou. Lin Yueru , and the Demon of Shadows, Li Xiaoyao. Both fell to the ground, but landed on their feet, drawing their swords, just as they had done, before the curse befell them both. The King was shocked, and he roared as he brought out both his swords and spun trying to take on Conan, by blocking his slashing attempts, to enter the temple <3>

TheGorya: -Conan could heard the sounds of Charlotte’s voice only to see that both the shadow wolf and white cat were really people. He grinned as he looked back at the king still charging only to clash with his blade as Conan could only grin. He took his left hand onto his tanto only to grip the hilt and unsheathing it form its holster. He quickly to it in hand thrusting straight at the king’s torso as a attempt to impale him. He knew it was not going to be so easy to kill him with the power the being clutched in his hand. The ringing of the blades were not just anything to be matched the sound waves only gave more of a reason for Conan to fight. He gripped his katana as its own blade started to vibrate with sound the sound that was being pushed through the blade only allowed it to start working like a chainsaw sound waves can cut through metal if focused enough to be able to be projected into a area as the sound would start to move with the blade in an attempt to cut through the kings blade using two attacks at once. Conan’s plan seemed to be flawless.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar: Lin and Li had already started to fight to take on the demon horde, that were made from the flames of Chaos, and the power of Earth. All were controlled by the King, so his power to focus on Conan was limited. Conan’s strength is his blades was simple. The vibration that they gave off, turning into sound waves, that generated more power as he attempted to cut through the King;s blades. But the King started to put up a real fight, clashing his blades with Conan and sneering at him, as their faces became close together. The King snarled at him through gritted teeth. “You can’t save them all!” <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan growled as they fought the clashing of there blades were only making his of sound strong. They seemed to be in a struggle over power with the blades trying to push closer to cut one another. Conan saw as he came closer to his face as he told him he couldn’t save them all. The tanto in Conan’s other hand pierced into the king’s torso it was so easily done as it cut straight into the king’s clothes and into his gut. Conan looked into the king’s eyes as he said.- “I will or die trying..” -the sound from the blade cutting through the clothes sounded as the tanto rang and quickly vibrated cutting deeper as it went into his skin. Only to attempt to shred the mans insides.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar: – The King’s torso was punctured, with the green colour of his blood, pouring out of his shirt. Wounded but now enraged, his eyes turned to silver, the same colour as the very moon, and the sky became black as night. He wielded powers that were unheard of, and he knew if he could stop the light, he might win the fight. In the background, Charlotte and the Sword girl with the Shadow demon were locked in battle with the minions of the King with no name, as Fung Le was walking slowly towards the temple <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan did in fact cut into the no name king as glared as his eyes seemed to change color to silver as Conan looked emotionless as he said.- “It’s pointless you know….. this fighting against us as most would have noticed the more we fight the stronger the sound will create as well whatever you have planned is nothing compared to what will be brought out be the light.” -Conan spoke as if the light was giving him power in a sense Conan was speaking the truth the longer his blade clashed the stronger it would become. In his talking Conan’s own eyes began to change color in the stare down. They turned into the color of green his hair slowly starting to change to white. As before Conan forced this in a faster state which in turn drained him completely. The stronger sound waves will slowly call on this power as they fight. The color the king;s blood was no surprise to Conan as he pushed his blade deeper into his gut as started completely claim showing no emotion.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar:- The King spat in the face of Conan, his spittle the colour of blood. His eyes were the colour of fire, red and lumious. His blood stained teeth showed a malice that was unmatched. “DOG!” he screamed at Conan, trying to get under his skin by calling him something like that. The King’s blade spun and then in an effort to push Conan back, the vibrating blade had truly done him in, the blood loss so great. He staggered back and placed a hand over his puncture mark. “You haven’t seen the last of me!” he roared, his body flaring up in flames, and then melting into the ground, as the temple shook and the foundations were rocked. He was after all the King of the Mountain. Charlotte watched at the other minions followed their master, either charging with fire and then evapporating, or falling into a heap of dirt. Fung Le had now made it into the temple and was walking up tothe boy, whose body lay on the tomb. The boy looked at peace, so was this the end? <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan had blood on his face as he only stood emotionless as he stared pulling out his blade as he swung it away from his body. The blood splattered on the ground in a curve formation as he stood there watching him flare up and melt into the ground. Hearing his words as he sighed.- “sadly one day you will be gone from this world. But that day will come.” -he took his blades and sheathed them as he sighed again whipping the blood from his face in disgust as he watched Fung Le entering the temple as he walked towards the boys body. He looked back to see Charlotte and other still making there way up the stairs. Conan’s white hair had change back to its original color as his eyes stopped to being blue. He watched what the old man would do.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar:- Fung Le watched the boy, and then he smiled, as he ran his hand along his cheek. The King had gone, but the darkness still coated the sky. Why did the moon offer its light, and not that of the Sun….where was the sun? It seemed they were about to find out. Fung Le had brought them all on the Trek, the Emperor had heard Charlotte’s chants, and restored the Shadow wolf and Atriz to their human forms. All was right, except for one thing. One…last..thing. Fung Le looked at them each and said softly…”I do this….beause, I love you all. Children of Nemaues.” The temple started to shake violently, as the Master’s eyes shone the colour of gold. “Leave, the temple….Now!” <3>

“Sunsets”

Sunsets over the beaches from now on
Each day looking for new ways to go on

Maybe I should drop by maybe I should have called
Maybe I should have followed you and beat down your door
Maybe it’s gonna be breaking you every time you fall
But to shower you with pity will do you no good at all

Slow burn watching the world turn from my arms
New way of measuring each day until it’s gone

Sunrise building a reprise in my heart
Regret tight around my chest plays its part

Watching the sunset over the beaches

TheGorya: -Conan watched Fung Le as the sky was still dark as he noticed it. As Fung Le spoke to them he was doing this for everyone. He didnt understand what he meant until he told them to leave as the temple shook. As Conan turned around with the temple shaking it was harder than anyone could think about as he ran outside the temple onto the opening using sound to assist him while he did so. He ran straight towards the kids and Charlotte and the others as he looked back seeing the temple still shaking Fung Le still inside. He had wondered if he was giving his own life for the greater cause. He saw the children oand the wolves that were still standing by them as he asked them.- “you alright?” -he looked back watching to see what would happen to the temple as Fung Le preformed some sort of ritual.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar;- Within theTemple, the Master was now alone. Standing by the tomb, that had stood the test of time. He had kept much of his emotion close to his own heart, leading many on a spiritual journey, that had shown its rewards, but lost many along the way. The words were written in script on the tomb, and it was now that they would be read by the one that was meant to unlock its power. He wiped away his final tear, and then smiled as he said the words….that had he had been waiting a life time to say; “Zuowei límíng shangzhang, xin de taiyáng dai laile xin de shenghuo he huiiu píngheng.” (“As dawn rises, the Sun brings new life and restores the balance.”) There was a blinding light, as the tomb started to shake and the boy’s body was engulfed in flames, as the Master started to morph, turning into his true form, that of the Dragon of the Sun. His body changing rapidly, as the boy’s body turned to ash, right on the tomb. Fung Le looked over his shoulder at Charlotte and then the sun broke over the horizon, and there was a powerful force, a massive solar flare, brought on by the spiritual connection. Fung Le whispered….”Goodbye….” and there was a massive explosion, as the temple was ripped apart, the roof being blown off, as two massive flames roared up into the sky. The prophecy, as the Phoenix rose high into the atmosphere, accompanied by the Sun dragon, that united as one massive ball of fire, that illuminated the entire planet. The Balance….was restored. <3>

*

TheGorya: -Conan watched as Fung Le turned into his true form as in seconds of it happening the temple was blown apart as he stood his ground trying to keep his balance from the blast itself. His had closed eyes for a moment as he heard the whisper in the wind as the sky cleared and the sun brightened making it lighter than before. Conan opened his eyes seeing the temple was now in ruins as he couldn’t believe it the old man he met in the tunnels and even his ways started to grow on him was now gone. He looked to Charlotte as he said.- “I didn’t really think that he would do something like that.” -he looked over the children as the wolves that were still next to both Seven and Luna were now bowing towards the temple in respect of Fung Le they could tell that he was a friend to the one they called Alpha. They stayed bowed for a moment as they then looked up at Conan as if they were waiting for orders from him. Balance was restored but some much had been lost along the way. It seemed that they maybe able to rest for more than just moments.-

*

CharlotteCarrendar:- Charlotte knew that something major would happen, but she had no idea he would sacrifice himself, to restore the balance and take the boy into the next life. The children were both in a state of shock, and Seven actually started to cry while Luna hugged him, rubbing his back. Fung Le meant a lot to Seven in the last few days, and to see him do something so selfless, tore him apart inside. Charlotte started to walk up to the temple ruins, and she dropped to her knees. Overwhelmed with grief and sorrow, for what he ha done….for all of them. Her tears flowed freely, while up the back, Lin and Li were holding on to each other, beneath the blossom tree, that still had its petals falling. They felt sorry for Charlotte, but they knew that Fung Le did what he did, so that they may go on, and prosper in their lives. <3>

TheGorya: -The wolves looked at the children and then to Conan as he nodded back at them. The wolves walked over to the children as they licked both of them after so placing both of there snouts on them as a sign of affection trying to show them that it would be alright. Conan had turned around over to Charlotte he was never one to mourn with tears. He understood what Fung Le did for them, he had walked over to her as he sat down next to her as he placed his hand on her shoulder. He knew the pain that was there but he knew that being there was the best thing as he spoke.- “Such a noble thing for him to do. He did so for everyone. I feel honored to have known him Charlotte. I know it is painful however remember that he will always be in your heart.” -he looked down at the ruins of what was left of the temple. The day of restoration yet it was a day of sadness as well the loss of a man that was in fact someone to be remembered not for his selfless act, but for who he was.-

CharlotteCarrendar:- “I can’t believe he’s gone.” Charlotte said quietly, knowing full well that Conan was beside her. She sniffed loudly and then didn’t know what to do with herself. She felt Conan place a hand on her shoulder, but she didn’t lean into him for comfort, she simply stayed on her knees. She cast her gaze up to the ruins, of what was once a beautiful temple. The boy was now where he should have been, and Fung Le is at his side. Charlotte knew it was for the best, but it still hurt so much. Charlotte gently wept, as the smoke of the ruins rose up into the sky. The Trek was at its end….and soon the remaining travellers would return to their lives, or start anew, like Lin and Li. For Charlotte, she didn’t know where to start. <3>

TheGorya: -Conan knew that Charlotte was in pain all to well the pain she was feeling was more than she could handle. Conan took his hand from her shoulder and started to untie the necklace from the back of his neck. He closed his eyes for a moment then taking it off as he took the pendant in his hands as he got up walking over to one of the rocks that was sticking out and it was large enough to right on. He took the necklace and draped it over the large stone. Conan gave a sigh pulling his tanto from its sheath as he looked at his hand for a moment. He stabbed the blade into the palm of his had as he gave a small whine from his throat. The blade cut his hand but not very deep into it since his skin was dense even though it was his own blade it only enough to leak a little bit of blood. He removed his own blade form his hand as he sheathed it as he dipped his fingers in the pool of blood that had formed in his hand. He started to write in his blood a symbol on the stone. The wound in his hand started to close the symbol he wrote was one that was of his own language. He stood up as he balled his fist up and bring it too his chest as he said.- “IT was an Honor Fung Le. I will see you again one day my brother.” -Conan bowed his head in respects to the old man he gave an offering to him as if he was a warrior of his home world.-

CharlotteCarrendar: – Charlotte finally got up to stand, and wiped away her tears with the back of her hand. Seven and Luna were being comforted by their wolves, part of their protection pendants. Lin and Li wandered over and both bowed before Charlotte. “Please do not be sad, he would not have wanted you to be, Zhu.” Lin said, rubbing Charlotte’s arm. The spider demon glanced over at Conan, who was using his own blood to mark a tribute for the fallen Fung Le. It was a touching gesture and one that she knew he truly meant out of respect. Charlotte then wondered, if the balance was shifted back, or had things gotten out of hand in Lorewall. There was only one way to find out and that was to head back. <3>

TheGorya: -Conan was done with his prayers as he turned around and started walking towards the group as he looked over to Lin and Li as he nodded to them and then walked over to the wolves that were comforting the twins as he said to the wolves.- “In my wildest dreams I never thought that I would see you both again. Yukon and Siri.” -he crossed his arms a crossed his chest as he smiled knowing full well as they both looked at Conan bowing once more as the one that was next to Seven as he looked at Conan.- “We heard the call of the young ones oh great Alpha. We are pleased that you have granted us someone to protect in your honor.” -they both looked back at the twins as Conan saw them still crying. He walked to both of them as he crouched down as he said.- “It’s alright. I know its sad and it hurts but both of you are strong. Remember he will always be with you both no matter what.” -he smiled giving off a happy expression to them to try and make them feel better.-
