Ninjago: Parallels

By ebonyumbreon

Fantasy / Adventure

Chapter 1

I groaned as sunlight hit my face. I hate the morning, nothing good about it. I groaned again as the alarm went off and I got out of my bed. True, it was a Saturday but I had some stuff to attend to, involving my friends and maybe Ninjago. I brushed my hair, got changed into my green hoodie and jeans and- then my brother decided to do his annoying routine. "Dom, it's blimmin' 9AM..." I pleaded. Dom ignored me and screamed into his microphone (technically my old toy microphone i got for my 5th birthday) "KIRSTY, GET THE HECK OUT OF HERE! COME ON!" and knocked me to the floor. He smiled his slightly scary grin. "Guess what day it is?"

"s**t." I forgot, mum says I have to babysit him for the day, and no, I'm not letting him stay at home stuffing his face. the friends I'm going to see are girls, so this is going straight to hell. the ones I'm going to see I haven't seen since the end of primary school last year... other than Sophie. We're going to Milly's house.

Anywho, I waited for him to get changed, had my breakfast of pancakes and said bye to mum. It was a half hour's bus journey. everyone looked at us, a bedraggled 11 year old and her hyper little brother, not a strange sight but they sure thought it was.

Finally, we got to Milly's house. well, I say house, more like a mansion in my opinion. It's a small victory that I'm still alive. shortly after ringing the bell Milly poked her head out from behind the door and smiled her smile, her face seemed more accustomed to that then mine... until she saw Dom when her mood darkened. she has *ahem* problems with him, we all do. But still my friend let us in. there were a bunch of mirrors in the hallway, which always felt weird when I looked at them. My reflection blinked back at me, blonde hair, blue eyes and all, tons, reflected on and on for infinity.

I eventually reached the expensively furnished living room where everyone was chatting quite happily. Sophie, Elenna and Arwen, shortly after joined by Milly and me. Conversation paused for a moment as i walked in, leaving space for people to say hi to me. Yeah, so, we chatted a bit catching up on what was happening to eachother now and how much we missed having way less homework."How come he's here?" asked a slightly annoyed Sophie, flicking her brown hair out of her eyes."look Soph, we've all had this conversation before, Kirsty can't really get out of doing things like this... being an older sibling has it's responsibilities." replied Arwen."Like you have experience in that area." Sophie snapped. And so, the conversation continued... Me and Milly just sighed, Elenna and Dom however didn't actually care, to busy bouncing around the room. "Let's just turn on the TV okay? will that shut you two up?""yes.""Probably.""Adventure time!""Ninjago!""Whatever's on!" I yelled. Everybody looked at me, I shrugged. "I ain't picky."

"Any other ideas on how to destroy the ninja?!" Garmadon bellowed across the cave, "Come on, no bad ideas.""lassst time he sssaid that we got thrown overboard!" Chokun muttered to the snake next to him. "True, but we're underground thisss time... he can't do anything here." The other replied.

"Anyone?!" Garmadon yelled again, seeing no one respond. Then a Hypnobrai raised his hand. "You." Garmadon pointed at him with the mega weapon, "your idea.""well," he said sheepishly, "you could wish them out of existence-""FOOL! I can only create with this weapon!" he lowered his voice, "besides, I have to leave loopholes for the ninja... thank you Lego.""Or," The Hypnobrai spoke again, "you could create something that can rival the ninjas..."

Garmadon considered this. "That is actually a good idea... what's your name?""Baz.""what sort of name is that?""short for Bazilisk Sir.""alright then." Garmadon held the mega weapon firmly in his four hands, "hear me Mega weapon," He muttered, "I wish for something that can rival, maybe even better, the power of the ninja!"

The crowd of Serpentine watched, and waited for something to occur. Garmadon himself seemed a little confused. "Work you stupid thing, work!" He bashed it against a nearby rock. Then, it started glowing bright gold. Garmadon smirked. "Good. now, show me what you have created."

Was I scared? Yes, incredibly. Did I wish I had acted completely cool about that? Definitely. So, you might be wondering, what was I so scared of? A giant black hole thing decided to open up in Milly's front room and sucked everything into it.

"WHAT'S HAPPENING!" I yelled, grasping the chandelier desperately. "i DON'T KNOW!" Milly yelled in response from where she was hugging a door tightly.

"WELL, AT LEAST YOUR PARENTS AREN'T HERE!" Elenna joked nervously."IS THIS REALLY A GOOD TIME?!" Sophie yelled."JUST TRYIN' TO LIGHTEN THE MOOD!"

I shook my head. Of all the times - "WHERE THE HELL'S DOM?!" I realised he wasn't here. And then I saw him groping for the carpet, with not much luck... he just got sucked in...

"DOM!" I roared. Nothing, no matter how annoying he gets, is going to suck my little brother into a black hole. ever. It would leave to much explaining to mum how it happened.

At that moment I made a split second decision: Jump. My fingers relaxed their grip around the chandelier and I fell backwards. I heard my friend's yells and protests... but I just...I just did it. no way back. I shut my eyes and waited for whatever came next to happen.

Something wet hit me in the face. I opened an eye. am I dead? In another dimension maybe? I looked around. A dark purple passage. That was all. "Dom?" I called, but no one responded. I felt somewhat different too, like I was... taller, bigger, slightly... Older? No way. I looked at myself and screamed. Lego. I was a mother f****** Lego. "Holy S***!" I screamed.

What now? Ninja- Something hit me in the back, I turned my head and saw another Lego person, no, four Lego people, all staring at each other blankly. "Kirsty?" The one directly behind me with black hair asked... "Arwen?! What the flip happened?!""I Dunno man! I'm really-"

A light appeared in front of me. I turned my head to face it. Next thing I knew, I was laying face first on a stone floor. on the bottom of a pile. great. I struggled to look up, but when I did I got the fright of my life. It was Lord Garmadon.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace.

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.
