Chapter 4 arrives! Your character post will come soon! As well as the guest star form! Vultraz’s Journey ReturnsDume’s Request, Part 1Chapter 4 – Of Jobs and ScapegoatsiBrow Comedy Productions The Coliseum.... Vultraz sighed as he stepped out of the chute right outside the coliseum, with Zaktan and Bitil behind him.“Remind why we’re here again, boss.” Bitil said, glancing from side to side nervously.“We’re here because Dume mentioned a job for me.” Vultraz replied. “We’re here because my diner, Ta-Metru, and Dine-Metru will all belong to him within the week if I don’t do what he asks. We’re here because Jaller, whom you used as a scapegoat, is missing.” “We’re here... because of Jaller.” Bitil responded, clearly disappointed.“Yes.” Vultraz nodded. “I’m not mad at you; Jaller’s the perfect scapegoat. It’s fun to make him cry. However, if he dies, I need to replace him. And finding someone as fun to make fun of as Jaller would be very hard.”“I gotta agree with that one, boss.” Bitil agreed. Zaktan nudged the two of them silently, nodding towards the entrance to the coliseum, where a Ko-Matoran was walking towards them, smiling.“Oh dear lord....” Vultraz muttered.“It’s Mazeka.” Bitil finished.Zaktan nodded in agreement as he shifted into his cloud form, until only his face could be seen. “Hello once again, Vultraz.” Mazeka smirked as he arrived. “Balta, Gorast, and I will be your escorts today. I hope you don’t mind.”“No... not at all.” Vultraz replied through gritted teeth. “Absolutely not.”“Great!” Mazeka clapped his hands together. “Let’s all go inside.” Inside the Coliseum Meeting Room: Vultraz took a seat at the end of the table; Bitil sat down on his left, while Zaktan decided to hover behind him. The still smirking Mazeka sat on Turaga Dume’s right, putting his feet up onto the table and leaning back. Balta was on Dume’s left; from there Gorast, Toa Hewkii, Toa Hahli, Toa Nuparu, and Tridax sat, leaving the seat on Vultraz’s right empty. To Mazeka’s right, Jaller was sitting chained to the chair gagged; beside Jaller a Le-Matoran was in the same situation. From there Atakus and Sarda sat. “You have... quite the company.” Vultraz spoke to Turaga Dume.The Turaga smiled sadly. “It is unfortunate that the Mazekas must join this conference-”Mazeka scowled.“-but I knew you would not cooperate with me unless there was a threat.” Turaga Dume continued. “Should you accept this job offer, these will be your travel companions.”“And others as well.” Mazeka put in pointedly. “What job offer?” Vultraz questioned. “What job requires you to kidnap one of my employees?”Turaga Dume smiled. “I wish you to go on a voyage for me, to the island of Voya-Nui.”Vultraz glanced at Bitil; the Makuta shrugged. “No.” Vultraz responded. “Brutaka lives there. The entirety of Mount Valmai is his fortress.”“Precisely.” Turaga Dume told him. “And that is what I require.”“His fortress? Why?!”“No, not his fortress.” Turaga Dume shook his head. “His mask.” Vultraz was speechless. Glancing over to see Mazeka calmly inspecting his fingernails told him that he’d be doing the dirty work.“If I don’t go?” he challenged.“You, Bitil, Jaller, Kongu, and Zaktan all die.” Mazeka responded. “And the diner- along with every employee in it- will be destroyed. Dine-Metru and Ta-Metru will belong to Turaga Dume.” “Well, boss?” Bitil whispered. “We gonna do it?”Vultraz remained silent, contemplating the consequences.“Zaktan?” he whispered, turning around. “Could you...?”The Skakdi shook his head. Vultraz cursed under his breath. “Fine. I’ll join your stupid voyage.” He told Dume. “I want two days. I need to decide who’s coming with me.”Turaga Dume smiled kindly, as if they were the best of friends.“I knew I could count on you, Vultraz.” He said, standing. “Mazeka, please release the prisoners.” Mazeka sighed before yanking on Jaller’s chains. The Ta-Matoran spun out of his chair, crashing down onto the table.“Ow.”Kongu was freed next, far more gracefully than Jaller.“Dude, that was not cool!” he complained. “I’m like, one hundred percent ouch right now man. Not cool. Not cool at all.” Mazeka kicked the two of them into the waiting Bitil. Vultraz stood, beckoned to his side, and strode out the door. When they were gone, Mazeka turned to Turaga Dume.“Things go as planned?”“Absolutely.” Turaga Dume nodded. “Gather the rest of you best members. On the third day of the voyage I want you to be in control of the ship.”“And the captain?”“Allow him to choose his side when you strike. I am sure he will make the right choice. And if he doesn’t... that’s why I have selected Atakus to join you.” Turaga Dume replied. Mazeka nodded, signalling to his gang members.“Come on crew. Zone out to Po-Metru. We need to have our own meeting.”Once Mazeka’s gang had left themselves, Turaga Dume spoke to Balta and Atakus.“I wish for you two to remain in contact with me throughout the voyage.” He informed them. “Once you have the mask, use these to summon me.” He handed two purple jewels to them; one to Balta, one to Atakus. The one given to Balta was significantly larger than the other.“Why do we need two?” Atakus asked. “There’s only of one of you.”“Yours will summon me.” Turaga Dume told him. “Balta’s jewel will summon someone far more important and powerful then me. Just as you serve me, I serve him. As should we all.”“What’s his name?” Balta asked curiously.“You will learn it in time.” Turaga Dume replied. “He is the almighty, however. And once, his name was Gamma.” To Be Continued.... How was it? Also, check out the link to information on Gamma in the post above this! You may discover something important!
