A week had passed since Oberon reigned in Delux’s steed, he then summoned Helix to the throne room.
“Do you know why I have called you here today?”, Oberon asked Helix.
” No, your highness”, replied Helix.
“Helix you do not have to refer to me like that, I am still your uncle”
” Well the reason I have called you here today is because, when your father died, his enchanted sword, the ruby sabre was conjured back to its original spot”
“And where exactly is this original spot”, asked Helix.
” Well you may not like this but it is located in the Quake Cavern, you kn…”, Oberon did not finish his statement before
” WHAT!” Helix interrupted. ” The Quake Cavern is the deadliest cave known to man, if anyone goes in there and steps on a rock a dozen more falls on him, its a natural booby trap”
“Helix, get your manhood together, your father had to go there to claim the sword and his right to the throne, only the bravest can go in there”, replied Helix.
” So you want me to enter the deadliest cave in the world, claim the most enchanted sword in the whole Xenopolis and return here?”, asked Helix rhetorically.
“Oh did I also mention that you have to cross the Phoenix Desert”, said Oberon
” But the Phoenix Desert is filled with thousands of Barsets, those blood thirsty scorpions would kill on sight”, said Helix
” I know Helix, but time is running short you need to get the ruby sabre before any other person does”, said Oberon.
A guard rushes in
” My Lord we just got word that Demus is hiding in Drakenpolis “, said the guard.
” That is no good news, Demus knows the blueprint of the whole of Orthodox city, he is going to sell us out to our own enemies” said Oberon ” You have to get the ruby sabre quick Helix”
” Okay I would be on my way soon”, replied Helix
” And on your way make sure you go to the Hail Mountains first to talk to your father’s apparition”, said Oberon.
” My father’s what?” asked a perplexed Helix.
” You should have listened more often in your studies, your father now has a place in Ecra as a god, you have to go and seek his counsel first” said Oberon ” Do not worry you are a child of a god no hailstones would hit you on your way up the Hail Mountain”.
” Wow that is a lot to digest, I will go tomorrow on the first light”, replied Helix.
