Episode 1: A Villain Has Come!
One clear day, where there were blue skies and the sun arose from its slumber. The sun made the sky light up with bright orange, red, yellow, and pink colors. The distant sound of birds singing their sweet melody can be heard. The streets were quiet not even a mouse was in sight. Suddenly, the beautiful day was erupted by an enormous black and red fireball. Its loud pierce can be heard as it rang thought out the sky as it came crashing down towards earth. The crash awoke people from their deep slumber, the people ventured outside to what is happening. They saw the thing that crashed it looked like a huge asteroid with weird symbols and an odd eerie green color surrounding it.
“Is it an alien? Asked a towns man.
“Is it an asteroid?” asked another.
“Is it an invasion?” asked a little girl.
Slowly crawling out of the strange asteroid was oil like substance out of this world. Then it shaped itself into a half human half alien like thing and started attacking the people that were surrounding the asteroid. It stuck out its tongue which was neither pink nor normal but it looked like an alien head without eyes. It bit into the first person making him scream and faint in fear. The rest that was there tried to run away but the creature formed its oil like body, wrapping around everyone, bringing them closer and it quickly struck at everyone with its tongue. Only a little girl was cleaver enough to hide during the attack behind a giant rock so that it will not attack her.
“Listen up pathetic humans; I came here for one purpose. I, Vemus, am in search of a special item. That is known to increase your strength tenfold and grant any wish the beholder desire. If any of you try to stop me, the consequences are death or becoming a mindless servant. So if you plan to stay alive you better plan to stay inside. It is for that I will use this item to conquer all planets so that I will rule all.” Vemus said staring back at the asteroid. A nearby news vehicle slowly backed away from the scene.
“Arise! My first minion we shall bring fear to those who stand in my way.” Vemus shouted.
A fellow town person wrapped in flames, screaming in the mercy of death stood up. In the next minute he limped to his knees wide eyed, mouth agape and silent. Then a strange oil like substance blasted through his chest. It engulfed the person quickly, making it catch on fire. When it finished engulfing, the person emerged with rock like body and fire surrounding his body.
“Master, I shall serve you till the end of my life in to the next. I am yours to command.” He saluted.
“I see I can sense that your heart is tainted with hate, regret, crime, rage and pure evil. With this dark heart, you now belong to me and these other humans are pure of heart. Therefore, they are dead, interesting. Minion, I shall call you Magmus, since you emerged from flames and you are half rock like. Together we will embark on this mission to find a sacred item to rule all planets.”
“Yes master!” said magmus saluting and the two left the scene.
The little girl that was hiding behind the rock let out her breath. Shaking in horror as she emerged from the rock, she stepped towards the lifeless friends, families, and neighbors.
“Little girl…” said a fellow town girl.
“Y…Y…You are alive?” asked the little girl.
“I do not know if I am alive or not. But listen to me as my last minutes on earth come near. We are not human like Vemus thought we are. We are elemental war heroes from the past that vowed to keep our power a secret. After we defeated a villain who was in search of the similar item, he knew about our power and killed countless lives. You must find help with the one known as Karaka Hakan. Only he knows where this item is. Use the item, wish this creature away.” She said and then died as black, oil like substance blasted through her chest. The little girl stood horror-struck.
“I…I… I will do as you ask.” She said placing a kiss on his head, symbolizing for her to rest in peace.
She looked around the others and they all were dead, she slowly walked away crying.
Meanwhile… in the home of Chi Midori, his family is watching the television.
“We break this special broadcasting for this breaking news. At 7:05 a.m. today an asteroid (showing a picture of the asteroid) struck earth and from this asteroid emerged oil like alien (it showed the picture of Vemus) thing we never have seen before. It attacked thirty civilians in less than a minute; they are all dead and covered with this oil like thing. We are warned to stay inside until this problem is solved. So please, everyone stay inside unless it is necessary to go outside. This is David Anchorman of SLL (Sharatobi (planets name) Latest Local) news and I bring you back this special broadcasting. The show Chi’s family was watching came back on.
Chi stared at his parents, “What are we going to do?” he asked.
“Hide… This house is not safe enough though, we must go over to uncle Chaske.” Chi’s mom said.
“But they just told us to stay inside.” argued Chi.
“Only if it is necessary… and finding a safe place to hide is necessary.” Chi’s dad said.
“Ok… I will go pack up my things.” said Chi, with a sad expression on his face.
“No need son we are leaving immediately.” Mom said.
The family silently but swiftly left the house and packed in the car. They drove out the parkway, drove for a few minutes only to stop abruptly before Vemus.
“You dare try to run me over? Vemus asked, glaring at the car.
Vemus raised a showy arm and slid it under the car. Vemus flexed and the next moment the car was fifty feet in the air, flipping over as gravity pulled it down. It crashed upside down with a thud, knocking out Chi. His parents crawled out of the car. Vemus wrapped his arms around both parents’ necks. He opened his mouth showing his tongue as it slowly came out. Chi’s parents kicked helplessly but it was no point, every time they moved Vemus squeezed harder making them turn red and then purple. Vemus struck his tongue into both parents’ foreheads and they stopped moving completely. Vemus tossed them aside with no sign of remorse.
“Master, what should I do with this one?” Magmus asked dragging out the unconscious Chi outside, holding Chi by the wrists.
“Dispose of him. He seems he is already dead. This is no fun; I didn’t get to kill him. You are lucky.” Vemus said patting Chi’s shoulder.
“Yes master.” Magmus tossed Chi to his parents leaving burn marks around his wrists.
When Chi awoke he looked around to see his lifeless parents.
“Mom…? Dad…? Please don’t leave me.” Chi said tears forming in his eyes.
“Chi, my boy, remember those stories about the Wisdom Star? Well, go find it, wish for it to be gone. So that no more villains from this planet or other planets come and find it.” Mom said dying when a black, oil like substance broke through her chest. Chi stood in shock.
“I will do as you ask mother.” Chi said as tear ran down his cheeks.
Chi looked at his dad, who was already dead with the same substance slowly wrapping his body. Chi walked slowly away wiping his tears.
“I will go find the Wisdom Star. For my family, for revenge, for other lives that will be lost. I will not rest until I find it.” Chi said walking towards the sunset.
