The floor shook in the private room. Larra stared out the window, watching as the battle unfolded in the trenches. A knock was heard from the room's entrance. "Come in," Larra said, walking inside from the balcony. Shane opened the door, along with Logan, Mik, Darrel, Skylar, Connor, Wolf and 12 vigilantes.
"Queen Larra, we must get you out of the city immediately," Shane said.
"But the battle is so far off," Larra said.
"Please my Queen, we must follow safety protocol and evacuate you to-"
"I will not cower in the face of this treacherous attack," Larra stated formally. A loud noise came from the roof of the room.Tap Tap Tap
Logan raised an eyebrow.Tap Tap Tap
The vigilantes drew swords and shields.Tap Tap Tap
Larra looked around. "What is that...What is that sound?" She asked. Shane's eyes widened in fear, remembering what the noise meant. "We HAVE to go, NOW!" He yelled. The tapping stopped. Larra gave a smug look. "Hmm. See, it was nothing."
Just as she was speaking, Tyrant jumped down onto the balcony. The force of him leaping down sent Larra to the ground. She looked over her shoulder up at Tyrant.
"How dare you barge into my private residents, who do you think you are?" Larra confronted Tyrant. "My Queen, I don't think-"
"I'll take care of this," Larra interrupted Logan. "I am Queen Larra, the last Dragonaire, and heir to the White Crown. And I will not be bullied by an over-sized freak who just so happens to-" Tyrant kicked Larra across the room, right in front of Logan and Shane. Larra got up and backed away into the hall.
"Take him!" Logan ordered the vigilantes. He closed the doors to the room and locked it. The vigilantes readied their weapons and stood in front of the door, forming a barricade. Tyrant growled in anger as he pulled out two Great-swords, his priced weapons, and instantly killed three vigilantes.
In the hall, Logan fiddled with the door that led to the main corridor to the throne room. All four could hear the fight going on inside the private resident. People screamed, objects broke and snapped, swords and shields clashed...then it went silent. Logan stopped trying to open the door. They stood in the hall completely silent. Bandit frantically jumped on the door nob and frantically tried to turn it while muttering a small prayer.
Tyrant cut through the door and charged down the hall. Bandit screamed and covered his head. The others hugged the walls as Tyrant ran right passed them and tripped over Bandit. Tyrant smashed right through the door and right through the wall to the main corridor.
"Huh? Meesis Alivsies? Hooways for Meesis!" Bandit said, leaping with joy. Logan and the others ran down the main corridor leaving Bandit behind. Bandit soon realized his friends were gone and chased after them. The main corridor had multiple doorways leading to a room with neat antiques, weapons collected over the years, and dorms. One room caught Bandit's eyes, a room full of jewelry from around Larnion, necklaces, rings, gems, it was Bandit's dream come true. But one thing really had his attention, in the very center, on a marble column, was the biggest Diamond the little fox had ever seen.
"Preshies, littles, bigs diamond," Bandit climbed up the column and tried to pick up the Diamond but failed. Tyrant ran down the hall right pass the room of jewels. Bandit rolled the diamond of the column and onto the wooden floor. "Don't worries preshies, I'll save yoosis."
Sunny sat in the throne room, waiting for Star's return. She could hear the battle going on outside and the lightning from the storm that brewed up over the city.
"Let me out!" "Let me out!"
Sunny heard the voice from the dungeon, she sneaked down the stairs and peeked around the corner. Ra'zar stuck his snout out from the cell. "Let me out, you don't understand he's here for me. The fighting will stop if you just let me out!" He yelled. Sunny tried to sneak closer. She accidently kicked a bucket that was laying on the floor.
"Thank the heavens, someone has come to rescue me, quick get the keys and let me out," Ra'zar said.
Sunny remained silent.
"Arkanace was using me, I want him gone just as much as anyone else, I have suffered from him too, you must understand!" Ra'zar pleaded.
"How do I know your not lying," Sunny confronted.
"I know you don't trust me, I don't think anyone else will trust me after all the terrible things I've done. But I can still fix this. The visions, of the Night Dragon fighting Tyrant," Ra'zar said.
"Night Dragon?" Sunny asked.
"He has white feathers, left-handed, wears a marriage necklace with red ruby," Ra'zar described. STAR!
Sunny thought, she immediately grabbed the keys and unlocked the cell.
"Come now, we must break the premonition if we don't want Murtogh to fall."
"Preshies, Preshies, Preshies," Bandit sang as he rolled the diamond into the throne room. He stopped just at the entrance to the palace. "Oh cursies meesis for not havies thumbsies," Bandit complained as he tried to turn the doorknob.
A group of soldiers leaned against the main gates. Lieutenant Pine lowered the wooden barriers to lock the humongous doors.
"We've lost the front, I'm on my way to light the evacuation code beacon," Pine said turning away from the gate. A Night Dragon ran down the street and accidently ran into Pine.
"Orcs! Everywhere, they've breached the palace, they're being lead by some kind of monster!" The Night Dragon screamed with terror.
"You eight with me, towards the palace!" Lieutenant Pine ordered.
Ra'zar grabbed a spear from the armory and met with Sunny who was going up the stairs. She saw Bandit standing on diamond still trying open the door. She went over and opened the door. Bandit tumbled down the stairs with the diamond and stopped right at Lieutenant Pine's talons. he jumped back and rolled the diamond behind his back. "Meesis Preshies, not yoosis!"
Sunny jumped down the stairs and straight to Star. Star dropped his spear and hugged Sunny. Larra, Logan, and Shane came out right before Ra'zar. The soldiers pointed their spears at the Dragonmage. Ra'zar turned around and saw Tyrant, who punched him over the battalion and into a building, knocking Ra'zar unconscious. Star picked up his spear and pulled Sunny behind him. "Stay behind me," he said. Sunny huddled up behind Star who pulled out his spear.
Bandit turned around and laughed at Tyrant "Yoosis' Armi is shutta down Genarel," Bandit taunted, sticking his tongue out and rolling the diamond out of harm's way.
"I suggest you surrender," Pine said. Tyrant laughed. "You can't be serious," He coughed, pulling his two favored greatswords out. Five Night Dragons came forward, circling the general. "Let's see how you do against Dragons," One of them said. Two jabbed their spears into his arms and lifted his body off the ground. He twirled the two greatswords, killing both of the Night Dragons. Another stabbed his helmet. Tyrant grabbed the Dragon using his foot and broke his neck.
The rain came down harder as Tyrant struck down another soldier. Pine took Star's spear from his talons and rushed towards Tyrant. He jumped up in the air and swung the spear into Tyrant's knee, knocking the giant down. The last Dragon managed to break the blade off one of Tyrant's great-swords. Tyrant beheaded the dragon and took his spear.
Pine backed away as Tyrant did a low sweep with his new weapon. Pine chipped off Tyrant's shoulder armor, revealing rotting skin. Tyrant parried an attack and forced Pine's spear to the ground.
Tyrant stomped on the spear, breaking the weapon and leaving Pine exposed to an attack. Tyrant stabbed the lieutenant in the chest pushing the blade of his sword out of Pine's back.
Pine managed to take the spear tip from his broken weapon before he was stabbed.
"How does it feel to die?" Tyrant asked. Pine shook his head.
"Not die...SACRIFICE!" Pine slipped the spear through Tyrant's chest-plate and out the top, creating a rod. Lightning struck the tip of the spear, electrocuting Tyrant. He fell to the ground along with Pine.
Star picked up a spear from one of the dead Dragons. Tyrant lunged up.
"Where's the Dragonmage? Where is he?" Tyrant demanded. He tried to grab Sunny and make her a hostage but Star stabbed Tyrant's stomach.
Tyrant pulled the spear out and choked Star. "Do you really think you can defeat me?"
Star tripped the giant with his tail and went in with his spear for another attack. Tyrant grabbed his sword and swung at Star. The blades of their weapons clashed.
Tyrant tried to force the spear down into the ground but Star was too strong, pushed Tyrant back. Tyrant was surprised that someone was able to push him back. Star leaped in the air, twisting mid-air he kicked Tyrant into the ground, making a two-meter deep crater.
Tyrant got up and punched Star, causing his helmet to fall off. Star rubbed his snout and spit blood. Tyrant was even more surprised. Star went in for a jab at Tyrant's head but the giant was able to disarm the young Night Dragon and pinned him down. Tyrant tossed the spear over his back and aimed his sword straight into Star's throat. Star dodged the fatal blow just in time. He bit into the blade of the sword and snapped the blade apart.
"You think that's going to stop me?"
Tyrant pulled a knife from his boot. "This is the end for you Lion Guard Elite," He said, holding the knife high above his head. Sunny turned away, Ra'zar's words kept repeating in her mind: Break the premonition, break the premonition, break the premonition! That's when she noticed Star's spear laying at her feet.
Tyrant held the knife over his head. A spear came through Tyrant's chest where his heart was, right as he was about to deliver the final blow. He looked over his shoulder and saw Sunny panting with Star's spear in her talons...
