Chapter XI – Elements
As the sun begins to set, we find ourselves entering the shadow of a gigantic fortress. Prior to our journey my companions and I received a very intriguing letter. In this letter, the Lord of this looming fortress spoke highly of our previous accomplishments and asked for our help in developing a strategy for a secret mission. We, Team BonzAI, as people have begun to call us, could not pass up this opportunity. This mission provides us with the perfect change to explore new lands, challenge us in our problem solving abilities, and most importantly to grow as a team!
While we were still a ways out, we could make out an imposing iron gate and what appeared to be monoliths adorning it. However, as we were approaching these monoliths began to move!
“Who goes t’ere?” said the monolith on the left.
“Why you come here?” said the other.
We jump back but quickly regain our whits, since this was by far not the craziest encounter we’ve had.
“Team BonzAI,” I stated, holding out the letter we received from the Lord. “We have come to speak with the Lord.”
“Oh,” said the monolith ignoring the letter. “Lord said som’t’in’ ‘bout this, right?”.
“Yea,” said the other monolith opening the gate, “Go ahead”.
We passed through the gate and low and behold there were more monolith like creatures wandering about.
“Strange,” said my companion, “what’s with all these earth creatures?”
“Not sure,” I replied, “Maybe it has to do with the Lord’s secret mission.
Approaching the largest structure in the fortress, where we assumed the Lord would be, we start noticing that the clouds were moving against the wind?
“Maybe that has to do with this secret mission as well,” I said gesturing to the strange clouds.
“I guess we will find out soon,” said my companion. “We are here.”
As we entered the building, little did we realize that this was the start to our groups 11th largest mission.
