BIONI-LORDS BOOK 3: KAKO PREVIEW 1
“Here you go,” Ackahu said, holding out a bag. “50 Widgets and one Fire Ultima-Orb.”
Tahra took the bag and said, “Once I’m qualified, I’ll come back here and beat you again. Enjoy being Fire-Lord while you can.”
Ackahu smirked and walked off, and Tahra admired her Ultima-Orb and said, “Huh, it does shine a little more when it’s the one you’ve earned…”
She noticed the other children approaching, and Kytan said, “That was quite the battle! You are extremely skilled.”
“Thanks…who’re you?” Tahra replied.
“Oh, my apologies,” Kytan said. “I am Kytan Ikhav. This is my younger brother, Genakex, and our friend, Xyla Pahrop.”
“Ikhav, huh?” Tahra said. “Well, I’m Tahra. Tahra Vakar.”
“Vakar…” Xyla repeated. “Wait, are you Takama’s daughter?”
“Who?” Genakex asked.
“The Third Fire-Lord,” Kytan answered. “He retired not long ago due to illness.”
“Yeah, that’s my dad,” Tahra said. “He’s doing better, so I’m finally starting my quest. Thanks for your concern.”
“Would that make you next in line to be Fire-Lord?” Genakex asked. “Er, wait…Ackahu is the Fourth Fire-Lord…”
“You need to be 17 years old and Level 14 to be an Element-Lord, moron,” Xyla said.
“Yeah…so that loser Ackahu gets to be Fourth Fire-Lord,” Tahra said. “But I’m still going to pursue my birthright. Once I become Level 14, I’m going to train everyday until I turn 17, and then I’m going to beat Ackahu to a bloody pulp and become Fifth Fire-Lord.”
“So…you can do that?” Genakex asked. “I mean, Fire is generally a male Element—“
Genakex was interrupted when Tahra grabbed him by the collar, got in his face, and said, “Do you have a problem with a female Fire-Lord? Because if so, I can give you a special demonstration of just how good I am at burning things.”
“I…uh…no…I didn’t…” Genakex stammered.
“He didn’t mean to offend you, I’m sure,” Kytan said. “Genakex just isn’t good with words sometimes.”
“Y-yeah!” Genakex said. “I-I’m sure you’ll make a great F-Fire-Lord!”
“I think you should burn him anyway,” Xyla whispered to Tahra.
Tahra glared at Genakex a little longer, but then she backed off and said, “I think you still need a little more proof. I’m going to travel with you guys. Seeing me in action should incinerate every last bit of doubt.”
“It will be a pleasure to have you,” Kytan said, bowing.
“It will?” Genakex said with a bewildered look. “I mean, uh, it will! Yeah! Welcome to the group!”
“I think we’ll get along just fine, Tahra,” Xyla said, smiling, “if only for our mutual hatred of Genakex.”
Complete the cycle.
