It was a dark and stormy night Asher and Andy were trying to write an adventure story for a wealthy man’s child. They were stuck trying to figure out how the story was going to be told. However, they did not give up because they were being paid 1,000 gold coins each, if the wealthy man’s daughter liked it. If she did not they will get executed. Asher and Andy were trying to find out a great story to propose to the wealthy man.
The next day Asher and Andy went down to the river to collect water for drinking throughout the day. Andy saw an old man dressed in the garb of a wizard. The garb was blue as the night sky and there was stars all over the garb. Andy was curious so he asked the man if he was a wizard and the man said he was, but Andy didn’t believe him so Andy insulted the wizard.The wizard was calm and he murmured a spell word and made himself a giant and grabbed Andy and ran off. Asher had good reaction and so he was just quick enough to grab the giant’s heel. The giant realized that Asher was on his heel so he grabbed Asher and threw him up in the air. Because of the blood rushing into their heads Asher and Andy blacked out.
When Asher woke up it was dark, he could barely see his hand in front of his face. Asher felt aorund him , trying to get a picture of where he was. He shouted Andy’s name out loud, hoping that he would find where Andy was. To his surprise he touched something rough. It seemed like human skin he thought, he moved his hand over a little bit and it fell into something that felt a lot like human intestines. Asher screamed.
Andy woke up with a headache he couldn’t remember what had happened to him, he looked around and realized that he was strapped down to a table with all sorts of wires and pointy metal objects around him. This seemed extremely familiar to him. Andy then realised that he was in the tortured chamber was from an earlier story that they had he and Asher had wrote. The torture chamber had a huge steel pad. The pad had two ropes to hold the person who is going to be tortured. Behind the pad held by four giant steel bars. In front of the steel pad was the pointy wires. Each metals was well placed. All of a sudden he heard a sound he looked over and saw that the wizard had entered the room the wizard said a spell and the torture devices spun into life. The last thing he heard was the wizard screaming about how he wanted Andy to write him an adventure story.
With a greater look at the dungeon cell, Asher realized that this dungeon cell is not made for humans. It is made for some kind of monster. Asher heard a sound, he froze in terror, something was crawling around at the back of the cell “ wh whos there” he asked, the crawling stopped.
“Hello puny humansss” something hissed “ Is you a foodssss?”
“N..no” Asher said.
“Well then whatssss issss you?” hissed the thing.
Asher was so scared that he didn’t respond and when he didn’t answer the scuttling started again and the most hideous most repellent creature came out of the corner it was covered in mold and old scabs and part of it’s ear was missing, It had two yellow teeth. It took Asher a few seconds to realized, that the creature was a rat!!
“Hello humanssssss” it said.
The wizard told his minions to make Andy sit at a well made wooden table, with a comfortable chair. The wizard whispered a spell that made a lamp light up on fire. The wizard cast another spell and said “If you try to escape my friend you will be dead before you could make a peep.” Andy swallowed his fear as he took the first paper from the wizard. The paper material was good better than the one he and Asher used. The ink pen was small but wouldn’t break it was most likely a one of it’s kind. Andy started the story with a great mighty dragon with scales the color of midnight who was destroying the world and nobody had ever survived a fire blast from the dragon. It was too powerful to defeat… Andy stopped there thinking of what should be next. He took the inkpen and dipped the pen in the ink and continued writing…
“Will you help me get out of this cell?” Asher finally found the courage to speak to the rat. The rat stared at him for a long time and thought now being a rat he wanted the cell to himself so he thought it over if he helped the human he would have the cage to himself but if he ate the human he would have the cage to himself and a full stomach. Finally the rat asked Asher
“What do I getsss if I help you get out of this cell?”
“100 gold pieces” said Asher.
“I am a ratsss I do not need gold pieces” snorted the rat
“What about food, you need food” said Asher
“ There is plenty here, I could sneakssss in the kitchensss and take everything I neededssss, if I wanted to” spat the rat.
Desperately Asher thought what he could give a rat, he questioned himself.
Finally Asher said “ what about a part in the book I’m writing”
“Considerable” the rat said. “A very interesting trade. What if you do not keep that deal?”
“I suppose that is a risk you will have to take” Asher challenged.
“ Well thensss, I will denied that offersss” the rat counter.
“ No wait, you can’t” Asher said “here I’ll make you the main character and dedicate the book to you”
“Ahh, very well, very well indeedsss” the rat said accepting the offer then he ran to the bar and chewed it. To Asher’s surprise the rat didn’t even need to try the bar was already broken.
“You tricked me” screamed Asher.
“ Not at allsss, I have predicted that you will make that offersss anyway so I nibbled the barsss.” the rat roll on his back and laughed.
Every few moments when Andy tries to move around he got shocked, it was so annoying. So far Andy had written that a great hero had come to fight the dragon and he was just writing about the part when the hero died, when the ground started to tremble and shake the wizard came into the room and demanded to know what was going on that’s when the wizard looked at the paper that Andy was writing on and yelled at the top of his lungs a dirty word (this word is not going to be written) and started trying to erase the words that Andy had written on the paper unfortunately he couldn’t because the ink had already dried. The wizard took another paper for Andy, to change the story. Andy saw sparkles started to come of the paper that he had already written on all of a sudden a huge dragon crashed into the writing room biting and hissing the wizard was frozen with terror Andy couldn’t run because he kept on getting shocked. He realised that the dragons scales were black as the midnight. Uh oh he thought isn’t that what I just wrote in the story, Andy had to find out he was still holding the sheet that he wrote that part on so he reread Once upon a time there was a dragon with scales as black as midnight, Andy read. Andy looked around and saw that the wizard is battling the dragon. The dragon stomped on the wizard and the wizard, but the wizard murmured a spell that turned him into a giant and the giant blocked the stomp from the dragon with great strength. The black dragon was surprised that the wizard had block his deadly blow, with thrill the dragon stomped on him again this time there was a ear splitting crack and Andy knew that the wizards back bone had snapped. Andy turned away he couldn’t watch the wizard lay in agony screaming. The dragon roar at it’s victory and turned to Andy. The dazed dragon makes Andy frightened, Andy tries to run but he got shocked again by the spell of the wizard. The black figure touched Andy’s mind and said, Master.
Asher looked down at the rat with disgust. He despised that foul creature he looked away and stepped through the bar it was time to leave. He saw a staircase at the end of the hallway going up that was the way out. A few moments later Asher heard a shriek what other dirty creatures were down here he kept walking on towards the staircase suddenly a black shadow crossed in front of him he started walking faster and faster he was about to reach the staircase when it collapsed. He heard something slither behind him he heard something hissing slowly he turned around. The creature was white. It had to front claws It’s legs werewolf legs, Asher could imagine the agility of that beast. It’s head was a snake but were scales should have been there was nothing only the skull, however there was still the venom in the teeth. The beast was a killing machine and a great hunter. It reached down grabbed Asher by his head and said any prisoners that try to leave die with that he snapped Asher’s head in two.
A few years later, Andy was a famous writer. One of his most famous book was Darkness then Fire. Andy had given Asher most of the credit, because he had found him dead when he went to search for him. Andy have earned about 1,000,000,000,000 gold for the book. He looked up at the sky and felt guilty why should he escape the wizards tower and Asher didn’t, oh well at least he dedicated the book to Asher. There was a knock at the door who could that be thought Andy he opened the door and there in front of him on the doorstep was a rat “hello humanssss” it hissed.
