Coming Home

Aikka had just reunited with his friend Molly when he noticed that Jordan was not with her

"Molly I am so glad that you are safe, Jordan is he…"

"Jordan's fine." said molly "Better than ever."

The surviving racers and companions arrived at the new module each saying their goodbyes. 2 racers in particular parted ways with a promise to see each other again. As the Bright yellow light inside Aikka's module faded so did his vision and consciousness, many questions arose in his mind as he collapsed, Did he let down his people by not winning the ultimate prize? Did the Crogs withdraw from Nourasia? More to the point was his family still alive? With the tall lion-mane inhabitants of Oban droning in the fields in honor of the new avatar the modules closed an one by one the others departed. Standing in the main module a pair of golden orbs watch sadly as his two friends departed back from wince they came, not knowing if he would ever see them again.

(On Nourasia after the last race and Canaletto demise)

"Your Majesties, the Crogs are pulling back." said a Knight as he entered the throne room sinking onto one knee

" What, are you certain? " said the King

"Yes milord, their forces are retreating from all over Nourasia. there is talk that Kross was defeated by a pilot from earth and her partner became the avatar."

The King was stunned to hear such news "What news do you have of my son?"

"None as of yet my King."

"Oh my dear boy, may the spirits protect and bring you and Canaan back to us safely." said his mother

(3 Hours Later)

"Your majesty, it appears that the new avatar has brought our heir back to us."

"Ready our mounts we will meet them where we saw them off."

And with that a legion of beetles set off from the royal stables towards the fields where they saw prince Aikka and Canaan off.

As they reached the fields the module was hovering in the air opening the bottom revealing a giant blue beetle with two occupants, one and older man with a beard and in front a younger rider both looking very weary but happy to be home.

"Welcome home Prince Aikka and you as well Canaan ." said one of the younger knights.

"Thank you, it is good to be home." said Canaan

"Yes, even G'Dar missed home." said Aikka

Both dismounted and sunk into bows in front of the king and Queen who was standing in the middle of the crowd.

"Arise heroes of Nourasia." said the king

They both stood, Aikka with some difficulty rose to see his mother embrace him in a loving hug as she longed to do for many nights over the last month.

"My bravest knight and brightest son I prayed to Sekai and Sera for many nights for your safe return."

"To be in your arms once more brings me great joy mother."

She released him as the king stepped forward. Aikka once again bowed but was taken back as his father embraced him with tears in his eyes.

"Even in the darkest hour, you stayed true to your code and have come home safe I am very proud of you my son. I've missed you so."

"I have missed you as well father ."

Aikka embraced his father and a tear slid down his face. He had let go of his father and headed towards his mount but the fatigue from the final race, trying to find molly in the desert, the battle with Canaletto and the trip back had finally caught with him. His vision blurred as he fell, Canaan caught him before he hit the ground.

"Prince Aikka" everyone gasped

"There's not time to waste let's get him to the medical wing at the palace." said the king

Canaan mounted G'Dar with the unconscious prince and everyone headed back to the palace.

At the palace medical wing Aikka was being carefully examined by the healers as the King, Queen and Canaan waited anxiously for the healer to come from behind the curtain.

An hour later the healer had emerged pulling back the curtain to reveal a sleeping prince.

"How is he?" asked the king

"He will be fine, he has a suffered few bruised ribs and fatigue no doubt from his races."

"How long will he be in here?" asked his mother

"It will be a few days before he would have the strength to be up and about."

"Very well." said the king as he and the queen walked up to their sons sleeping form and wished him a quiet good night and left the room. Canaan stayed behind to keep an eye on him as he normally did when ever the prince was ill or injured.

"Prince Aikka, you have made our planet safe with the accession of a new avatar and judging by the actions of this Molly and Jordan the galaxy is in good hands . Thank you for showing us the way."

Ok so that ends the first chapter let me know what you think I'm gonna try to get ch.2 and 3 up before I leave for San Francisco for advance training.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel.

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.
