Atlantis (Hijack)

By animelover

Fantasy / Adventure

Prologue: The Beginning

It started out to be a perfect day for the Atlantians. Skies were blue and the waters were calm. Until a huge vibration along with a burst of light over the horizon, meant that something was coming. Two fishermen looked up from there catch, to the ocean they saw soldiers on flying fish like vehicles and dragons coming towards them. Behind of them was a large tidal wave that was gaining on them.

"We have to warn the people of Atlantis" One of the soldier on one of the shimmer was a Pooka. He shouted to the man on top of the lunar dragon, who nodded his head in response.

Both of them shot through the air, trying to outrun the wave to make it to the city. They swept through the city, shouting warnings of the upcoming danger. The guards on the warning tower got up and looked out. Once seeing the wave one guard ran to the mic and shouted for everyone "to head to the shelter". The others let gongs ring, and scream were heard below as all the Atlantians tried to run and hide.

It was like the sky knew what was happening for it turned grey and cloudy, causing the air to get heavy. The crystal in the sky turned red and beams shot out like it was looking for something or panicking itself.

More screams filled Atlantis as everyone ran towards the palace thinking higher ground can save them. No one had any idea how bad it would get. Three royals were panicking like everyone else. The Queen told her husband to take their son and head to the palace. She prayed that death would come at ease to her people and family, for no one will be able to survive this.

As the King pulled his son, Jack, to safety, he felt Jack tug on his arm and looked back to see Jack reach for his toy warrior. "Jack leave it" The king kneeled in front of his son and grabbed his shoulders. Trying to explain to the small boy of five "We have no time for it. We must…."

A red beam landed on the king and prince. It turned to blue as the King turned to look at the light and stood up. The king looked up at the crystal and his eyes turned a neon blue. Electricity flowed through his body and his body lifting into the air. His grip on his son lightened and the only thing he had in his hand was the bracelet that belonged on his son.

Jack looked around in confusion. It wasn't until he didn't feel his father hand that he looked up to see him be lifted away.

"O-tobo!"

The Queen heard her son shout for his father and saw he dear husband engulfed by the crystal. Knowing what was about to happen, she grabbed his son close her chest and told him "Close your eyes Jack"

The crystal rotated fast that it liked like Saturn, a bright light of blue and electricity shout out and caused a force field surrounded the city. People tried to get run as they could to get beyond the field. Only those who crossed were safe, but those behind were not lucky, for when the wave hit, water overlapped the city. Ripping the stones and people apart. The crystal and city was then engulfed by the ground and water filled it place. When all was settled, it looked like nothing was there.

No one knew for sure if there was a city called Atlantis. Nothing can be showed as proof that it was a real place. Only light remnants of stories and artifacts from different cultures. Until one story of the shepherd's journal. A book filled with experiences in Atlantis. Anyone who found this book, would find the riches of Atlantis and the story of how they lived. But in this story, we are going to take a journey to find the Lost Empire.

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Usagi Kita: This story is emotional from beginning to end. You get to watch the characters struggle and grow, maturing in different ways so that they come to be the people they are meant to be.
