THE SANDY DESERT OF STYX
The portal reappeared and thrusted the two boys out, they both fell hard on the ground with a dull thud. then the portal immediately disappeared after discarding the boys.
“ ahh ” the two boys lying on the ground groaned and winced in pain the force at which they had hit the ground was too severe. looking at Derick Jimi asked softly
“ are you okay ”
“ yes I am ”
Derick muttered. they slowly stood up from the dusty ground and dusted themselves. as they continued to dust themselves they observe that they where in a new environment. it was a whole new world, the sky was brightened by the ray’s from a pinkish moonlike structure. the rays of the structure gave a vivid pinkish color to the clouds studded in the sky.
the weather was a bit gloomy. but everywhere was as bright as early in the morning.
the two boys backing each other, continuously turned around, and scanned the whole area with there nervous eyes and mouth wide open. they discovered that they where both in a desert where they could not even see it’s beginning nor end. A gust wind was blowing fiercely in the desert. thus diffusing the brown desert sand on the boys. the wind was so strong that atmosphere was filled with dust.
“ oh my… where the fuck is this ”
Jimi asked being totally flagabasted and panicked.
Derick shrugged his shoulders.
“ hmm, I don’t know buddy. I guess we are in another planet ”
“ in another planet ?”
Jimi exclaimed with a grim face, he stared at Derick for some seconds as if he was expecting Derick to revise his statements and say that he was just kidding and never meant what he just said.
“ what? why are you staring at me like that?”
“ tell me, you were just kidding me”
“ of course I am not ”
Derick replied and stretch out his right hand with his forefinger pointing at the moonlike structure in the sky. he drew Jimi closer to himself, then rested his left arm on his shoulder.
“ look you see that satellite ?”
“ yeah I see it, what happened to it ?” Derick looked wearily at Jimi, then shooked his head to show that he was disappointed at jimi’s ignorance.
he took a deep sigh then continued
“ are you so dumb that you can’t observe that the moon like structure in the sky is pink in color but earths moon is kinda white in color when it shines ”
“ wait, are you trying to insinuate that we are in another planet ? ”
scratching the back of his head Derick replied
“ hmm, yup that’s what I’m trying to insinuate ”
all of a sudden jimi became perturbed, what the heck was going on. his mind quickly drifted back, he could vividly remember that he and Derick where both running for there lives, and out of the blues everywhere was darkened and the next place they could them self is in this unknown desert. oh no, at the drop of a hat Jimi grabbed Derick firmly and tightly by the collar with both hands. which made it difficult for Derick to find his breath.
“ oh come on tell me you are just kidding me,”
“ I don’t know pal, c’mon calm down it must have been that ass hole, he must have been the one that brought us here ”
jimi knew that Derick was right. it must have been been the guy in the armour, it can’t be anyone else but him.
“ the guy in the black armour ? ”
“ sure you are right ” the armoured guy’s voice resounded from nowhere in particular. “ I was the one that brought you here ”
jimi loosened his grip on Derick’s collar and wondered where the voice had resounded from. slowly the portal appeared like a small circle which gradually formulated into the big scary stygian circle. the guy in the armour made his way out of the
Jimi could not believe his eyes his body suddenly felt limp and exhausted.
“ oh no not again ” he mumbled
“ how dare you do this to me. why did you bring me here ”
he roared at the top of his voice, his eyes blazing with fury.
the armoured guy gave a light chuckle, before speaking.
“ you agreed to follow me right ? ”
“ I didn’t mean what I said earlier I was just kidding ” Jimi replied sternly.
“ then you made a big mistake to kid with me. your kidding has landed you in the beautiful land of Styx. you should even be grateful to me for bringing you here. ”
“ oh God of megazon what the hell have I done to deserve this crap. huh ? ”
“ sorry for my manners, ”
the armoured guy cleared his throat then continued
“my name is zuro ”
“ to hell with your Gat damn name asshole. enough of this drama take me home right now ” Jimi roared boisterously without any atom of fear in his voice. Derick who was quiet the whole time drew closer to jimi and whispered feebly into his ear.
“ dude relax you know this guy is capable of killing us ”
“ I don’t care what he is capable of doing he has ruined everything ” Jimi blurted out.
“ I am sorry I ruined your plans. the truth is I can’t take you back after I have succeeded in bringing you here ”
Zuro pleaded sheepishly with a very calm voice.
“ if you can’t take me home fine, I will find my way back home ”
Jimi clenched his teeth and kicked the dusty ground. Zuro shooked his head and chuckled before speaking in a husky voice “ oh I see….. It looks like we will part ways here ” he chuckled evilly again with a wry smile that show only his upper set of snow white teeth.
“ you can go sooth yourselves but remember don’t venture into the Badlands or else you will be eaten up by beasts ”
“ I’ll be fine as long as you won’t bother me anymore with your bullshit ” Jimi retorted. Zuro took a long look at the boys then slowly turned around and trodded his own way. while Derick and Jimi stood still like a statue. with only there eyes swiftly moving to and fro surveying and examining the isolated desert.
“ bull shit ” Jimi muttered. the two boys slowly turned there heads until there eyes met. they gulped there spit noisely down there throat.
“ are you thinking what am thinking ” Jimi asked peering into Derick eyes.
“ yup ” Derick replied and nodded vehemently
“ you don’t need to tell me I know exactly what you thinking. you want us to turn around and follow the old puss who calls himself Zuro right ? ”
“ yeah, I think we’ve got no choice but to follow that asshole ”
the two boys having no other option decided to follow Zuro. they couldn’t risk there lives in an unknown world worst of all in a desert where there is no food or water. Derick gave a loud sigh then continued
“ let’s follow the asshole, I still gat some chicks to smash I am too young to die from starvation ”
derick blurted out and they both turned around and yelled at Zuro.
“ wait!!! ”
Zuro grinned evilly when he heard the boys yelling his name. but he pretended as if he didn’t hear them and continued moving.
“ wait !!! ” they yelled again. but this time he abruptly stopped moving and turned around. the two boys heaved a deep sigh of relief, then scurried up to meet him.
“ I knew you would come back ” Zuro Sayed to the boys and smirked.
“ I don’t care what you were thinking. just take me to your pa let’s get this thing done.”
Zuro looked at the sky then heave a sigh of relief at least he has succeeded in completing one part of his mission. as he continued to look at the sky he spoke up.
“ it’s going to be morning very soon ”
the two boys looked at each other and wondered.
“ what do you mean ? ” they asked curiously
“ it will soon be morning ” Zuro replied them.
“ but it’s morning already ”
“ it’s not its night fall ”
“ what the….” the two boys where bemused. every where was bright as 8:am in the morning.
“tell me you don’t mean this crap you just….said ” Jimi asked with keen curiosity.
“ I do ”
“ but everywhere is bright I thought it’s morning already ” Derick added
“ no it’s not, daylight in Styx is more brighter than this ”
“ really then I can’t wait to see daylight ” Derick said in a fuss.
“ what’s the fuss all about huh? ” jimi asked and glared at Derick.
“ and one more thing my portal does not work during the blue moon and yellow moon ”
“ what the hell” the two boys exclaimed
”well, that’s not gonna be a problem there’s no blue or yellow moon in the sky anyway ”
Derick said and gave a witty chuckle. but Zuro replied him.
“ the blue moon will appear anytime from now. after the blue moon comes the yellow moon after the yellow moon comes the pink moon.
the blue moon shines during the morning the yellow moon shines during the afternoon the pink during the evening and through out the night. the color of the pink moon will gradually change to blue an when it does I won’t be able to activate my portal.”
“ what about the sun when does it shine ” Jimi asked eagerly
“ there is no sun ”
“ what !!! ? ” the two boys exclaimed. but Zuro replied them.
“the yellow moon is the brightest and greatest light, it shines in the afternoon.
during the day. ”
“ so that means there will be no need for the sun ?” asked Derick.
“ yes ”
Zuro stopped speaking and there was silence for some couple of seconds. he walked closer to Jimi then spoke up.
“ am sorry kid, I know I really ruined your plans. but I promise to make it up to you ”
Zuro sayed to Jimi and Pat him on the shoulder.
“ well what are we doing in a desert? is this desert the crap you call stick?”
Jimi asked with a Sterning look on his face
“ it’s not stick it’s Styx ” Zuro corrected him.
“ stinks, stick or Styx whatever ”
“ why did you bring us to this desert ” asked Derick.
“ just wanna take a ride it’s been long I took one ”
“ so where’s the ride ? ”
“ just watch and see ”
