Dateline: Mitchell decided
to go to Olympia’s temple on Flame Mountain so he could bring the desert
people rain. And he succeeds.
Cameron said to me. “Yes, Yes what?” I asked. “Look.” said she. I walked
over to an old wooden signpost. Another missing child poster was up. This
time a little girl with rainbow ponytails was missing. “This is the eighteenth
poster this week.” Cameron said. “I see.” I said. “Think there’s a connection?”
she asked me. “Could be.” I said. Then I came up with yet another idea.
“Let’s go fin these kids.” I said. “But Mitch we don’t know where to look!”
Cameron replied. “We’ll try.” said I to her. “All right.” said she. Then
we went out on our mission.
some witnesses we talked to, the children would disappear around nightfall
but they didn’t know where though. “This is getting us nowhere!” Cameron
wailed. “We’ll keeping looking.” I said serenely.
breakthrough came when we saw an old farmer in his field and asked him.
“Them missin’ children have gone to da dark city.” he answered. Cameron
gasped. “That’s the city of devils! Why would they want to go there?!?”
she asked. “Do ya think I’d know?!?” the farmer shouted. “Sorry.” she said.
“Where is the Dark city?” I asked. “It’s just down this road. But be careful.”
the farmer answered. “Right.” I said. I turned to my companion. “Well,
let’s go!” I said to her. Cameron just nodded and we walked down the road.
walked on, we noticed it was getting darker. “Mitchell, what time is it?”
Cameron asked. I took out Megan’s watch and looked at it. “It’s three o’clock
in the afternoon.” I answered. Then we realized: “We’re almost to the dark
city!” Cameron exclaimed. “Well, let’s go!” I yelled. Then I grabbed her
by the hand and ran to the dark city.
That was all we heard. Pure silence. It was dark and abandoned as well.
“Well,” I said. “This is it Cameron.” She just nodded. We processed on
hours of searching, Cameron and I found the kids in an abandoned bomb shelter.
There must have been thousands of them. They dazed and lost. “Come on.
Your parents are worried sick about you!” I yelled. “No.” they said. “Why?!?”
I asked in shock. They didn’t answer me. Cameron was doing research. “I
found it.” she said. “Found what?” I asked her. “They’re all on the lotus
plant!” Cameron yelled. “Huh?” I asked. Then I saw what she meant. The
children were drugged. No wonder they were so dazed! One of the boys was
eating a piece of the lotus. I ran over to him and tried to take it out
of his hand. He put up a good fight but I won. I crushed the lotus plant
in my hand and dropped it. “What can we do?” I asked Cameron. “We must
destroy the lotus plants.” she said. “Well, where is it?” I asked. “All
around the city.” she answered. “Let’s go!” I yelled in anger. Then we
left to start on our search for the lotus plants.
across a huge section of lotus plants. I pulled my razor gun and fired
at it. For once, my gun failed me. “It’s not working!” I said. Cameron
tried her flower disk. It cut the plants but they grew back bigger and
greener. Cameron shook her head. “Well, let’s use our other weapons.” I
said. “Right said Cameron. We tried everything until our Gold spike shooters
sucked them dry. At last, success! We grinned and began shooting the entire
lotus in the city.
killed the lotus, Cameron and I went back to the bomb shelter. We had to
wait for three days for the kids to snap back into reality. Once they came
back, they were scared, confused, and wanted to go home. Without a single
second to waste, Cameron and I took them home. After our adventure, Cameron
and I hit the road.
