In a world where everything seems safe and everyone lives in harmony, a mysterious boy can tear it all apart. The evils of Neopia will rise. A hero is in need, one who can save not only himself, but also his planet.

Chapter 1: The Arrival

“COME ON!!!!! ARRGGGGG!!!! You know I beat the high score! Stupid machine!!” I punched the Meerca Chase machine. “Come on Shadow were leaving.”

“Awe, just a few more seconds.” complained my blue Gelert, Shadow.

We walked out of the arcade and headed home. We live in Starsville on the eastern side of Neopia, about 2 hours away from the Mystery Island. It was kinda a quiet place to live. Everynight we have stars even if it is cloudy, they overpower the dark puffs and shine on the town.

“Well, well look who it is.”

I turned around to see Matt standing with a Green Lupe. “Nice pet, steal him??”

“As a matter a fact my parents got me him. Looks like you still got the loser of a pet.” He boasted.

“GRRRRRRR!!!” growled Shadow.

“Well, looks like a storm is comin so Im gonna jet, later.” He climbed on top of his Lupe and rode away.

“He makes me so mad.” said Shadow.

“Lets just get home buddy.”

The second we got home I plopped down on the couch and turned the TV on. I flipped around until I got to the NeoNews.

“I am here at the scene of an unusual incident. Cases of what it seems to be “possessed” Neopets around town. If you happen to have any information please report it right away.” said the reporter.

“Hmm, thats weird.” I said. “Heres the remote, Im gonna go take the trash out. I got up and walked to my backyard. As I pulled the trashcans out to the curb, a strange noise came from the bushes. “Wh.ose there?” I walked closer. “Hello?” nobody was there. I turned around to go back in when a man jumped down from a nearby tree. “AHHHHHH!!!” I screamed, jumped back, and put my fists up. “Come on big boy.” I said trying to sound tough.

“I didnt mean to startle you, Chris.” He walked a little closer. “My name is Mitchell, Im a Guardian.”

“Huh, whats going on?”

“Ive been watching you for a while, well actually for about 3 years. Ive also been watching all your friends too. Ive been looking for the right person to be a Protector.”

“Wait, I though Protectors were only in old Neopet legends. Doesnt a Protector have some kind of power to save Neopia?” I asked.

“Correct. You see Protectors are actual still around, but only a few certain people know about them. Ive been searching for the next one for a while now and you have something special. I know this is all kind of fast.” He faced the opposite direction. “How about you come with me and Ill tell you about everything.”

I nodded confused and surprised at the same time. This was kinda fast.

We began to walk down the street. “As I was watching you I noticed something that I didnt see in anything else, you have a very strong spiritual power. You seem to be very strong and intelligent, also you have a talent with handling your Neopet. I actually remember when you first got him. You were so happy and you followed each other everywhere.”

“I cant believe this is happening. This is crazy. I dont know what to think.” We reached his house.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

After about an hour of talking and looking through books I headed home once again.

“Shadow, you got to hear what happened to me.” He didnt answer. “Where are you boy?” I searched every room and he was nowhere in sight. “This isnt good.”

“Hey where are you running to Chris?” said my friend Mandy as she spotted me running down the street.

“ShadowGone…Protector.” I blurted out trying to catch my breath.

“Slow down, what happened?”

“Shadow is gone, everything is crazy. Ill explain later.”

“Well lets go find him.” she said.

We ran down the street passing every obstacle on the way. I had no clue where to check I just had to keep running. We started to go pass a huge cave hidden in the nearest forest of Starsville. I began to hear cries for help. I turned around to notice a gang of Neopets with glowing red eyes staggering closer to us.

“Are those the possessed Neopets?” Asked Mandy.

I grabbed her arm. “Lets not wait and find out. I pulled her into the cave.

“Where should we go from here?” Mandy asked.

“Um, I dont know. I guess we can go this way.” I led the way through the dark, damp cave in sight of safety, but all we found is trouble.

“HAHAHAHA!!!! Ive been expecting you.” I turned around to see a guy around my age standing on the back of an Eyrie. His hand had a purple glowing orb around it.

“Oh great. What now.” I didnt want to deal with this now, until he lit up the room and show not only Shadow, but also a few other Neopets locked in a cage. “Who are you?”

“Ryan, but you can call me Neo.” He jumped of his Neopet. “Let the battle begin.”

He shot a purple orb at me and I jumped away dodging it. I grabbed a sword from on of the statues in the cave and ran at him. He grabbed a sword and we began to fight. He had some kind of psychic energy. I could feel it and it was strong.

“Tired yet.” He shot another orb at me, this time flinging me half was across the cave.

“Chris, the lock!!!” Shadow shouted from the cage. I rose the sword over my head and broke the lock freeing all the Neopets.

“Lets go.” Neo jumped on his Eyrie. “Well finish this later Protector.”

“Whats he talking about?” asked Shadow in confusion.

“Its a long story. Lets go home and Ill tell you guys everything.” I wasnt really sure about everything that was going on, but I know Ill find out soon. – Chris

One response to Legends in the Making #1 – The Beginning of a Legend by Chris

  1. I do a lot of number crunching for these types of games because I think that the past can show us what may happen in the future. As you may or may not know sometimes its hard to figure out the winning team in professional football. This is the main reason why I like using statistics for sports.
