A Dark Day

A DARK DAY

 Once upon a time there was a distant world where there was only peace and tranquility, the lands were governed by a great magician with his pet: a mouse who possessed special skills that its master had taught it. The magician also had his apprentice's support, Howard, whom he considered as his son. Howard used a special sword to defend himself and learn to fight.

 As everything used to be normal the young apprentice went out to his training, suddenly he saw that something moved inside the forest, so he decided to deviate from his way and look around. By surprise, Howard found a nice fast horse, he was completely in love with it, thus, every day after finishing his training he fed it. One day he decided to ride it, and take it to the magician to ask him if he could keep it. The magician did not hesitate to say yes when he saw the great speed of this horse.

 Everything was as usual, people were happy with their lands and families, but nobody knew that everything was about to change. It was a normal day; all of a sudden began to get dark. Immediately the magician ordered his apprentice to ask all citizens to get into their homes and not to go out. Howard got on his horse and informed everyone quickly.

 It was noon and everything was in darkness. The wizard's lands had been invaded by a dark energy led by a man with the appearance of an evil crocodile who visited the wizard and told him: '' Give me your land if you don't want to suffer and see the blood of all the people in your town spilled'' The magician answered: “No way! If you want them, you must defeat me along with my troops''. The crocodile told thim: ''It will be like that, I wanted to do it right but now you will suffer'', and he left.

 The magician ordered to form his troops and sent his apprentice to take all the people who lived there, to a safe place. Howard went on his horse with the mouse and took all these people to a cave, built for cases like these. There, they left the horse in charge of people and they went where the magician was.

 The troops were ready; the battle hour was getting close; it would be the next afternoon. The moment arrived... The magician had all his army trained and ordered to move to the alley of the entrance of the village; it got dark again. When crocodile’s troops arrived, the magician waited for the attack with his army because they knew the other ones were too strong. Shortly after, the wizard's team was being defeated. Therefore, the mouse made a move and destroyed a huge rock that fell over the opponents; unfortunately, the rock also reached it and the mouse was almost dead. The crocodile attacked the magician who tried to defend himself but was being defeated, so it was Howard’s time to help.

He fought with the crocodile who gave him a fist bump and sent him away, when Howard got up and saw that the magician was crying, this gave him courage again. The crocodile attacked him and injured his head, as he could, he got up and did a trick, kicking the crocodile’s head that left the crocodile in the ground, Howard made a wave and dropped a statue over the crocodile, the impact was such hard that he cut his head. Thereby, Howard took the crocodile’s head, climbed a tower and showed the head to the evil man’s troop. Thus, all of them went away afraid to never return.

Howard looked for the magician and the mouse to take them to heal, while the horse brought people back. Everything went perfect. Later, the magician decided to hand the lands and his throne over Howard, who was crowned as the emperor, and the horse and mouse as the troops leaders. The magician went to rest and so, they never saw a dark day again and lived happily for the rest of their lives.

THE END
