The portal

Chapter 1: The portal

It was a lovely day on Iron Earth. The Silver X were training for the basket game in the Local Championship. Everyone were doing there best, especially Gold Heart and Top Joy, because after the basket, they had baseball then ice hockey and the final game is soccer. "For God's sake, Mach! Stop keeping the ball for yourself!", Gold Heart shouted angrily at the blonde soccer leaguer, Mach Windy, who was holding the ball all the time without passing again -Yup, they've been practicing for hours and Windy always forgets to "Sorry, Heart. I won't do it again.", said Windy to the angry female leaguer. (well, she wasn't as high as the other leaguers. Her size was like humans and she had long blonde hair that reached to her waist, sea-blue eyes and light-blue armor on her body). "Calm down, Heart. Windy is trying his best.", the generous voice of the tender white karate leaguer, Kiai Ryuken, made her calm down and say: "Alright. But don't forget to pass this time. We're a team, Mach. We need to do this together, or else we'll never win.", the ten leaguers all nodded in agreement. "Okay then. Silver X, let's go!" "Yeah!"

Then, they all went back to practice. The coach, Edmond Ginjo, was watching them with his niece Ruri and they were both happy to see everyone working hard:

Coach Edmond: Everyone are doing their best.

Ruri: Right. Uncle, I think we have a good chance to win, right?

Coach Edmond(after thinking for a while): Well, I...

Ruri: Uncle. Don't start this again.

Coach Edmond: To be honest, Ruri, I'm not pretty sure.

Ruri(falls down then stands up again): Uncle, please. You are the coach, try to act seriously about things.

Coach Edmond: Ok, ok, I will. Don't worry about anything, Ruri. As long as everyone are doing their best and play fair and square, everything will be just fine.

Ruri: You're right. I wish if my father was here to see this.

Slade(appears from behind them): You know that he doesn't stay in one place.

Ruri: M-Mr. Slade.

Slade: But if he was here, he would say how proud he is of everyone's effort. As I'm proud of my sweet little pearl.

They look at the team's direction to see how they're doing. Gold Arm had the ball in his hand and he kept moving with it until Top Joy cut the way. Right then, Arm passed the ball to Gold Mask then Mask passed it to Windy. The blonde leaguer kept going pass Ryuken then Bull Armor and GZ. But when Jyuurouta appeared in front of him and tried to take the ball, he passed it to Magnum Ace then Magnum passed to Gold Foot and he scored. "Yeah! That's cool!", the scar-face indigo leaguer said excitingly. "Oh my God. You guys have improved in this. Happy.", Top Joy said. The pink funky basket leaguer was the most excited for the game. "That's because of working hard and putting our best efforts in playing", the indigo kendo leaguer said. Jyuurouta was looking at Gold Heart while talking with them. "Also because of the spirit Heart gave us", said GZ and everyone agreed with him and looked at Gold Heart. "Guys, I have nothing to do with it.", she said and turned around to them. "With or without me, your spirits would always shine and show you the way of your lives", everyone nodded in agreement and looked at the sunset.

Suddenly, a dimensional portal opened and started pulling everything in it. The leaguers stood still but the portal's pulling strength was too powerful. Heart was almost caught in the portal but Arm got her in the right time. Unfortunately for Magnum Ace, he couldn't hold on much longer and the portal pulled him. "Magnum!", everyone yelled as Magnum was pulled into the portal. After that, the portal was closed. Gold Heart didn't believe what just happened before her eyes. "No. Frontier!", she shouted loudly then started crying. Slade ran to the collapsed girl and tried to comfort her. 'I don't know who opened that portal, but I'm sure he's up to no good. Magnum Ace. Be careful out there.', he thought as he was embracing his daughter.

Meanwhile, Magnum was going down like what seemed to be forever. But then, he fell hard on a river bank and lost consciousness. At that time, Raymond and Gabriel were riding their horses near the river, "Commander, look!", Gabriel pointed at the fainted leaguer and Raymond looked surprised and said: "Is that...?" They both went closer to him and Raymond checked him, "His damages are not dangerous but we must take him with us.", he said. And without any other word, the two soldiers tied his feet with the horses and pulled him until they reached the Count's villa in Boulogne. "Excuse us for bothering you, Excellency. But we have found an Iron Leaguer on the river while patrolling.", Gabriel said. The Count stood up and looked at the blonde lieutenant. "Well, that's interesting. Where is he?", the mismatched-eyed aristocrat asked. Then, Raymond and Gabriel took him to Haydee's room where he saw the leaguer's face. And surprising to everyone, the Count recognized the red and white leaguer, "Magnum Ace?", he said barely whispering.

Then, Magnum opened his eyes and turned his vision to them. The Count smiled to him and said: "I'm glad to see you again, Magnum.", the red baseball leaguer looked at them for two minutes. "I beg your pardon, do I know you?", everyone were shocked when he asked this question. Right then, the Count realized one thing. "Oh, my God."
