Two siblings, looking for a profit, break into an abandoned facility for potential treasure. Along the way they accidentally open a portal and get sucked in, and one of them get woken up by young dude with muscle powers in a new world.
“It’s okay, I won’t hurt you,” a female voice said.
“Who said that?” I yelled out of fear.
“Me!” the voice said. Either I was tripping or the wolf just talked.
“Di—did you just talk?” I asked.
“Yeah, just like any other animal in this world.”
“World? Where am I?” I was in a snowy forest with snow falling down all around us.
“Oh lord, you haven’t developed amnesia have you?” the wolf asked.
“Amnesia? I don’t think so.” I replied.
“What’s your name?”
“Well, we’re off to a good start. My name is Clara and you’re in Dendrite forest.”
“You seem to be lost, little girl. Where is your home?”
“Aurora, Colorado? I never heard of that place.”
I’m so confused right now.
“Here’s a better question, do you remember how you got here?” Clara asked.
“I was in a run-down facility and got sucked into a wormhole or portal of some kind,” I replied. There was no way she was going to believe that.
“Portal? … The legend is true?”
“I’ll tell you later, right now we have to get you out of this snow. That torn jacket is not going to be any help.” I had a pink and black sweatshirt with a dragon on it that Caleb got for me for my birthday and it was torn to shreds. So yeah, the jacket was clearly not working.
“There’s a network of caves in tourmaline mountain. There some people that will probably help you.” Clara said. She immediately dove her head below my legs and positioned me on her back.
“Hold on tight,” Clara said. For a wolf her size she was surprisingly strong. She ran towards the tall snowy mountain. I held on like I was riding a mustang. She sprinted nonstop for like 20 minutes before we got to the bottom of the mountain. She stopped at the bottom and looked back at me.
“Before I go up here, I have to warn you. These people don’t take kindly to humans. I’m one of the few who does,” Clara said.
“Are they gonna try to kill me?” I asked.
“No, but they’ll berate you, so I hope you have thick skin.”
“I was the roast queen back at home, I’ll be fine.”
She positions me back on her back, and she runs up the mountain. She jumped up a couple boulder that were sticking out. I didn’t expect this mountain to be like that. We passed a minecart that was broken down and had a broken chest inside of it. I guess there some history on this mountain I don’t know about.
She turns a corner and there’s a hole with two blue mountain lions guarding it. She slows down and approaches them slowly. I lock eye contact with one of them and it gets into a defense mode.
“Halt! Clara, what is this human doing here?” one guard asked.
“Drake, Duncan, I found this little girl passed out and she’s hurt,” Clara said.
“Clearly she’s not smart to be passed out by this mountain. Run along, little girl, before you get killed,” Duncan said. He began to walk towards us growling and looking me dead in the eyes.
“Wait, I’m not from these parts. I was sucked into a portal and crash landed here,” I said. I feel like I fucked up by saying that since it would give them an even better reason to kill me. Duncan walked towards us and stopped in front of my face. I gave him a face of fear as to not kill me so soon hoping that would work. He began sniffing all over me and backed up.
“She checks out, she doesn’t smell like those other putrid humans,” Duncan said. My anxiety dropped a little bit. Only a little bit.
“Our leader Alexander could probably help you,” Drake said.
“Thanks,” I said out of fear.
“Just don’t get comfortable,” Duncan said.
Duncan walked back to his spot and Clara walked in the cave with me still on her back. It was like a network of caves inside one cave. By the entrance it was just a big empty space with all different types on animals hanging out. Ostriches, mice, coyotes, deer, even rainbow colored squirrels running around in a line. There were multiples holes in the walls that each animal would go into like their own room. The only light source were torches hanging from the walls and few hanging fires on the ground. Towards the back of the “lobby” there was an incline with a sign that says “Alexander’s and Griff’s Den” beside it. Clara started walking towards the sign and I could feel the tension I was getting from these animals staring at me. Everything went silent, and I tried my best to not make eye contact with these animals. I could see the looks I was receiving from my peripheral vision. They didn’t even make an effort to try and hide the shit talking.
“What the hell is Clara doing with a human on her back?”
“Maybe she’s going to feed her to her kids.”
“What a stupid looking girl.”
“Dumbass Bitch got captured.”
“Y’all leave that little girl alone!”
“She’s kinda cute, I’m not gonna lie.”
“Griff is going to make mincemeat out of her.”
I was trying not to smile because I’ve heard worse back in Colorado, but I was also nervous because were they right? Is Clara just tricking me so she could feed me to her kids? Is Griff going to make mincemeat out of me? Am I going to die without ever seeing my brother again? Is my brother alive back at home? Did he land here in this world too? Too many questions raced through my mind as we walked up this incline,
“And if you’re wondering, no I’m not going to feed you to my kids, we still have plenty of sheep in our den we can eat,” Clara said. Thank god.
We approached the end of the hallway and there’s an entrance way with a boulder blocking it. This had to be Alex and Griff’s room.
“Get off and knock on it,” Clara said. I got off and knocked on the boulder. Five seconds later a voice answered.
“Who is it this time?” the voice asked. He had a little gruff Australian voice on him. It was basically MK9 and MKX Kano’s voice.
“Clara. I have a hurt human who I found passed out in the snow,” Clara answered.
“Tell that human to get lost we don’t help them and you know that,” the voice replied.
“She said that she came from portal and found herself here.”
Ten seconds go by and the voices replies. “Come again, Clara?”
“I said, this little girl claims she came from a portal and found herself here.”
Five seconds later I hear a button being pressed and the boulder get lowered into the ground. I look back up and see an old wild yak staring at me.
“Is this true, young lady?” the yak asked.
“Yes it is,” I replied. He squinted his eyes and looked at me more intensely.
“All right then, come in. Let’s talk.” I walk into his room and the yak hits the button to put the boulder back up.
“I’ll be back to check on you,” Clara said as the boulder was being lifted back up.
“Come sit.” I turned around and saw the yak sitting on a felt of some kind. I walked towards him and took a look at my surroundings. There were a couple bales of hay and a table with a pen and some writing on a piece of paper. I sat down on the cold hard ground which is stone.
“So let me get this straight young one. You came from a portal?” the yak asked.
“Yes. I was in a run-down facility with my brother and a portal opened and I got sucked in.”
“Did your brother get sucked in too?”
“That’s the million-dollar question. I don’t know if he’s here or still at Colorado.”
“Colorado? That’s the name of your home?”
“What’s your name little girl?”
“Kenzie. McKenzie Rossi.”
“Alexander. Alex for short.”
He got up and started to pace around the room. This is where my anxiety levels began to rise again.
“Consider yourself lucky little girl. We usually don’t associate humans but you’ve piqued my interests,” Alex said.
“How come you guys despise humans so bad?” I asked. I was scared asking that question, not going to lie.
“Most humans are stupid and only care about themselves. Selfish things. Luckily there are a couple we trust you’ve just became one of them, especially with the legend is now true.”
“Legend says that the former leader of this region came from a portal and led our nation to salvation. He’s dead now and his Granddaughter is in charge.”
“So maybe I need to go talk to her?”
“It is a possibility that she may know some things, but before you go to her you’ll want to talk to my apprentice first.”
“Griff. He’s on top of this mountain. Nowhere near the peak though. He’s been trying to find out about the legend himself through research and questioning. That paper you saw earlier are actually his notes and he could be closer with you here now.”
“Cool! Where is he?”
“Climb that ladder over there, he’ll be at the top.”
I got up and walked towards the ladder and started to climb up.
“Better be careful. He’s special,” Alex said. I’d dealt with many thugs and criminals all looking for the same thing me and Caleb were looking for. I was sure I’ll be fine.
I reached the top and climb off the ladder. It was snowing even harder up here. Behind me was a stone wall with holes. What caused the holes? I started to walk slowly, grabbing my torn jacket, which kept trying to fly off of me. I’d walked maybe like 15 steps before seeing a figure in front of me.
“You risk much seeking answers from a person who hates his own people,” the figure said.
“The only thing I have is my life,” I replied.
“Well then, you’ll lost that too!” the person turned around and threw a knife at me at supersonic speed. I quickly ducked and the knife collided with the wall behind me. The one that had the holes on it. So that’s where the holes came from.
“Huh, very few humans are able to dodge that. I might have some fun with you.” The person stepped out of the shadows and revealed his body. He was human! An actual human! He had long black hair reaching down to his shoulders and had a rough beard and moustache. He was shirtless, revealing his six-pack abs and a big chiseled chest. He had I’m guessing tribal tattoos running up his arms and chest. He had shorts that were damn near ripped and revealing almost all of his thighs and Walmart versions of Black timberlands.
“Hold up, you hate humans? Aren’t you human?” I asked.
“Yes I am, but I cannot stand the others. Selfish, weak, pathetic things. But you might be an exception. I’ve heard the conversation you had with Alex and I want to test your might,” the person said.
“So you want to fight me?” I was not ready for this.
“Yes. I, Griff Ludden, will fight you. If you win I’ll answer all of your questions and you’ll have my protection. If I win, you’ll be banished from Tourmaline mountain and Dendrite Forest, never to return again,” Griff yelled. He raised his hand waved it around and it stopped snowing. The knife also returned to his hand in the air.
Okay, I was not prepared for this one bit. I was really about to fight an almost naked muscular dude who has powers while I’m starving. Not even 45 mins into being in this world and I’m already fighting for my life. What the hell have I gotten myself into? Luckily him stopping it from snowing made my jacket not try to fly from me, so that’s one less distraction. Again not even 45 minutes in this world, I’m already annoyed.
I was wondering who was going to make the first move, but that question was answered when he summoned a bow out of nowhere and rapidly shot arrows in my direction. I quickly dodged a couple and dove behind a random stone stocking out of the ground. He kept shooting arrows at the stone as if they would eventually go through. I was able to grab a couple off the ground and come out from the other side and threw them at his direction. He stopped shooting arrows to see my failed attempt at throwing arrows but they all missed. Luckily I had one arrow in my jacket and I ran up to try and stab him. He saw what I was doing and fired a couple arrows in my direction. I dodged them by sliding on the ground, diving sideways and rolling to recover and I stabbed him in the stomach with the arrow.
Or at least I attempted to…
The sharp end of the arrow exploded on impact against his rock-hard abs. I looked at his face to see him laughing. He grabbed my wrist, held me up, and delivered a punch to my guy that sent my flying back. What the actual fuck?
“I think Alex forgot to mention, I’m the protector of this mountain. I’ve trained my body to become damn near indestructible,” Griff said. Well, that explains a lot.
“Then how in the hell am I supposed to win?!” I asked.
“Figure it out! Until then…”
He threw his hand in the air and summoned a sword with a black blade and a white hilt. He spun it around a couple times and came charging at me. I’m so fucked.
One thing Caleb always taught me was to keep my weapons on me in case of emergencies. The only weapon I carried were brass knuckles I bought at a boxing convention, so I quickly took those out and put them on my hands. He swung at my head. I ducked and quickly threw an uppercut to his chin. That caused him to stumble back a couple steps. I didn’t think that would work. He gained composure and swung downwards towards my shoulders. I dove to my right and immediately got back up to run. He began chasing me and I automatically knew he was toying with me because I wasn’t sprinting and he could’ve easily caught up to me. I dove behind a boulder and three seconds later he turned the corner, but I wasn’t there. I climbed to the top of the boulder out of sight and kicked him in the face. He dropped the sword and I quickly kicked away from him. That kick bruised him in his cheek.
“Huh. You’re a smart little girl, most humans would be dead right now,” Griff said. At least he gave credit where it was due.
“I fight for my life almost every day back at home. Too many criminals to deal with,” I replied.
“Okay, you’re not a rookie, but this is where your story will end.”
He threw his arms in front of him so I thought he was going to summon a scythe or like a chainsaw but what he did next was three times more surprising. Remember the tattoos I mentioned earlier? They started to glow a light green. He threw his arms back and his arms grew. Not like grow longer, but his muscles got bigger. He was already a fairly buff guy but now he was getting bigger. His biceps became like a small basketball and his shoulders became bowling balls. I saw his abs pop out more one by one and his pecs jut out like watermelons. His thighs grew thicker and began to rip the shorts he had on and his calves were like veiny footballs. By the time he was done he was sweating and I saw veins everywhere.
“So, what, I’m supposed to be scared that you got all big and swole? You know how many bootleg Banes I’ve fought? I’m not scared!” I said. Well, that was cap. I was a little scared.
“You should be, little one,” Griff said. He walked to one of the boulders and lifted it from the ground. Keep in mind these boulders are literally wedged into the mountain. Not even a construction crane could lift one of those out of the ground. He tossed the boulder towards me and I dove out of the way. Before I could even recover and get back up he kicked me in my side and I rolled over like fifteen feet away from where I was. He walked towards me and I gave him another uppercut but he didn’t even move. That dented my brass knuckles. He grabbed me by my neck and lifted me up and punched my face multiple times. I was screaming in pain but he didn’t tend to care. He then treated me like a football and dropped me and immediately kicked me in my stomach and I flew again. I felt like crying because that shit hurt but I wasn’t going to go down like a bitch. I slowly got up beaten and destroyed. I was slouched over grabbing my right arm with bruises and blood everywhere and breathing heavily.
“What?! You’re still standing?” Griff asked, shocked.
“Y-Yeah, I’ve b-b-been through worse than this,” I replied. Again, that was crap. I mean I’ve been shot, but not nearly beaten to death. This was worse than being shot.
“You truly are a formidable warrior. But I have one more trick up my sleeve.” What else could he have to kill me with? I was expecting like an elemental axe or like an even bigger sword like some final fantasy type shit. Nope. I was completely wrong.
What happened next? In a split second his cock ripped through his shorts and stood at attention. It had to be at least 19 inches with his 6’5” frame (I don’t know, I’m just guessing). It just kept growing longer and thicker till it got to the bottom of his chin. I was beyond confused as to what happening here.
“So what, you got a big penis?” I asked.
“You’ll see,” Griff replied. Without him even touching it his nearly 2 foot cock lowered down and was pointing directly at me. The tattoos on his skin started to glow again and I could see and feel the wind circle around him. What in the Dragonball type shit is going on? That question was answered when I saw a light green ball of energy began to develop on the tip of his cock. The energy grew endlessly as I felt the wind grew stronger around us. My hair kept getting in my face from the wind. Hell even the trees were getting winded.
“I guess there’s no way out of this one, huh?” I asked myself. I looked around for some kind of failsafe. I was backed against a wall so I really didn’t have much room too move around in. But I saw the hole in the ground where I climbed up from. I’m about to fool this man.
“Any last words little girl?” Griff asked.
I responded with a middle finger.
“Last flash!!!” Griff yelled. If he wanted to say “Final Flash” he could’ve. I saw the beam coming towards me. If I don’t do this right I will die. Whoop dee fucking doo. I waited to till it was at least five feet away from me and I quickly dove into the hole, crashing down against the walls and fell on the ground. I’m pretty sure I cracked a few more ribs from that. I heard the explosion from his blast collide with the wall on the way down. I had more blood pour on to the ground. Alexander saw me and we locked eye contact for a split second. I smiled with missing teeth and blood pouring from it. I climbed back onto the ladder and climbed up as fast as I could with one arm. I could see the rubble smoke from the blast so I had time to get back up before the smoke cleared. I got up and was struggling to stand up. The smoke cleared and I saw Griff standing there stunned to see me barely standing.
“Y-you survived that?” Griff asked.
“Hell y-ye-yeah,” I replied. I raised my fist in the air and a sign of victory and I saw my vision go black. I dropped to my knees and then collapsed onto the stone ground and passed out…
