The Many Adventures of Natius and Friends Season I: Final Mix

By Sdaa_1993

Adventure / Fantasy

Prologue: Legend of the Shrine of the Firebird


As the clouds were rolling a young woman's voice was heard, "Everything always starts with a beginning and there are some that have wonders on how they were built or came into existence such as the Pyramids of Egypt. This all began in 1955 when Disneyland was opened the first time, a person discovered within the Redwood Forest a structure that was said to have a creature stored within its halls."

1955, Redwood Forest

An old man was hiking in the forest with his dog enjoying the beauty of nature, the dog was sniffing for something and it started barking and howling and dragged the man to what the dog was barking at. The man looked in astonishment he saw what appeared to be a structure that looked as if it was made of stone, it was a temple of some sort, and the man out of curiosity decided to look and see what was beyond the wooden door. He opened one of the doors, and he saw that the place looked as if it was a church and he saw a statue of a bird like creature that looked as if it was made of fire and lava. Just as he was about to proceed to look further he stepped on a switch and saw a pendulum about ready to cut him down. The man avoided it and he left the shrine with his dog and he reported it to the police, but they started to laugh at him thinking of it as a joke. The young woman narrated, "Even though it was considered a joke amongst realists, there are some things that can occur in unforeseen ways. Fifty years later, a young boy who was unconscious from injuries was found when a boy was hiking with his father no one knows how he came to the forest. Overtime the shrine became a dangerous place so parents forbade the place."

2005, Enchanted Forest

It was a dark cold night a forest that had a quiet glade of grass. A man garbed in a light blue cloak kept his hood on and placed what appeared to be a boy of nine years old with spiky jet black hair that went downwards in various directions halfway down his back, his eyes were a color of a light brown with highlights of gold that was fading away as death was nearing him garbed in a crimson long sleeved shirt, black pants and boot like shoes. The man set the boy gently and smiled, "It's for your own good demon boy. We can't have you interfere with our plans to revive our master, Chernabog."

In a metaphysical world

Moments later the young boy was now garbed in a crimson long sleeved shirt, black pants, and brown boot like shoes, he landed on a platform that had the image and he opened

his intense hazel eyes and heard a voice emanating, "Hello." The boy responded, "Who are you? Why are you here?" The voice explained, "My identity is of no importance, I saw a small spark of fire, and it had lead me to you." "That was my fire," said the young boy placing his hand on his chest, "now that fire is slowly fading with my life." The voice offered, "Young man, I can offer you a chance to live, if you become my avatar. However be warned, my fire can cause both destruction and salvation and there is a price to be paid you won't be able remember your past. Do you accept this chance?" The boy answered, "I accept your offer."

Enchanted Forest 2005

Meanwhile in the physical world, the boy extended his left hand and without warning, a double edged long sword appeared the blade was a dark red and the hilt was black had a head of an eagle-like bird with flame orange eyes and a fire started to emanate from the sword and it shot in the sky, the young boy opened his eyes that were now a bright orange as if a fire was glowing within them. The man too frightened ran away from sight, and after a flash of light the boy vanished.

Redwood Forest, 2005

The sun was shining brightly as a boy of ten years old was walking his dog with his dad to see the richness of the forest and he saw a young boy who looked no older than nine years old with jet black hair lying face down wearing a crimson short sleeved shirt, black pants, and black boot-like sneakers and the boy said, "Dad!" and the boy's father saw the young child and he checked for a pulse and he took the other boy for medical attention.
