The list of characters mentioned in this story belong to the various authors that created them. This is a fan-fiction story.
Several people gather around Kepiru and Nip on Pern. Jaxom asks the first question.
“Kepiru and Nip, there is something that is bugging my mind right now. Was Fax possessed as well?”
“He was, Jaxom. The demon spirit gave him the grand illusion of being the supreme leader of Pern. I can tell you he had no desire for that before he was possessed. Nip and I can surely tell you none of us wanted to commit murder.”
Everyone look at each other with sadness. They soon realize they are innocent friends who lost their lives because of this demon possession.
Then Jaxom looks at Menolly, “Menolly, I am sure Richard included as much information he could find about demons and angels. Hopefully, there is material on how to defeat them.”
“I hope so too, Jaxom. Richard was able to create ice from the air around him. Perhaps there are teachings to do that.”
“We know the dragons and the fire lizards will be useful with their natural talent to breathe fire and teleport where they want to. We need to include that so all of Pern can be able to defend ourselves and Pern.”
Then Menolly looks at the other Harper Masters. “Come my friends. It is time to take our teaching to another level.”
“We agree with you, Menolly. We must be prepared mentally when this Ultimate Last Battle takes place.”
“Then let’s fly to the AIVAS Hold!!”
The other Master Harpers shout out loud in response, “Yes, Menolly!!!”
The Master Harpers mount the fire lizards and dragons with their dragon riders. They think of where the AIVAS Hold is located. They disappear in a blink of an eye. They appear in front of the cave where the AIVAS computer is located. They walk inside to begin learning about the Creator and how to defeat the demon angels and be able to defend themselves if another demon possession is about to happen.
On Hell World, King Azazel is going over some notes with Appolyn. Then out of the corner of his eye he sees two flames flying toward him. Once he sees Murmur and Thrasher are gagged and collared with flaming ice, he has an evil smile on his face.
“Let me guess what happened, Murmur. You had an encounter with a Richard Moore, didn’t you?”
Thrasher and Murmur nod their heads up and down in shame.
“Who will speak for Murmur?”
Disco speaks up, “Rocker and I will speak for Murmur.”
“What happened on Pern, Disco and Rocker?”
“Everything was going smoothly. We sent all of the Oort cloud rocks toward Rukbat. Then Thrasher and Murmur possessed Kepiru and Nip one more time with the other demons inside them. This was done so that Jaxom would be knifed. Apparently, Richard Moore arrived the day or two before the grand meeting on the Northern Shore. They decided to knife Richard as well. But, Richard was able to block the knives.”
“Grrr . . . Then what happened next, Disco?”
“Then somehow, Richard knew who their names were. He was able to command them to give up your plans to destroy Pern. Then Richard released them when Murmur threatened to put the whole planet to sleep. Murmur flew away quickly to join with Samael who was coming down to them.”
“Then what happened, Rocker?”
“Richard extended his feathered wings and flew up to join us in the air. Murmur gave Samael’s name. He hoped that Richard would use it to command Samael. But, somehow, Richard called him the Angel of Death.”
“Anybody who has seen Samael knows they are facing the Angel of Death.”
“That is probably true, my King. However, Richard said he had no qualms with the Angel of Death. He is just doing his job.”
“Hmm . . . that’s an interesting exchange. What happened next?”
“Then Richard accused Murmur of not being able to carry a tune in a bucket if he wanted to.”
“Richard said that? I haven’t heard that statement in a long time. Heh, heh, heh, . . . That’s funny.”
Then Thrasher and Murmur try to grumble at King Azazel. “Grrrrr ...!!!”
“Oh shut up and stop murmuring, Murmur and Thrasher.” King Azazel turns his head toward Rocker and Disco.
“Then Murmur and Thrasher tried to sing a song. But, Richard immediately iced their necks and mouth. Then that cursed dragon memory that Richard knows, came out of him and lit up the ice collars and gag.”
Then Murmur and Thrasher begin to scream through the ice. “MMMMm m m . . MMMM . . . mmmm . ...”
“Don’t worry you two, I’ll get the ice collars off of you quick enough. But, for now, you will bear the pain a little longer.”
Murmur sighs, “Sigh . . .” Then he nods his head up and down.
“So, what happened with the Oort cloud?”
“We were from a long distance to watch the destruction of Rukbat and Pern. Rukbat exploded violently. We then searched for any dragon and human remains. We couldn’t find any, my King. We assumed they were all incinerated in the explosion.”
“Now go back in your mind, Disco. Tell me every detail before the explosion happened.”
“We looked at Pern intently. I think for one instant, the planet was enveloped in a blue haze.” Disco turns to Rocker. “Isn’t that what you saw, Rocker?”
“It could have been blue, my King. But the sunlight was making it green as well.”
“Hmmm . . . A blue haze around the planet. I don’t ever remember seeing that anywhere I have been to. But then again, don’t assume anything.”
“What are you saying, my King?”
“Oh, it’s an old joke told on Earth. Don’t assume anything. Because, if you did, it would make an “ass” out of “you” and “me”.”
“I think I heard something like when I tried to get the disco music to be the number one trend. But, alas, it only lasted about five to ten years.”
“I know what you mean, Disco. All right you two. Do you want me to get those flaming ice collars off?”
The nod their heads up and down. “Hmm . . .Hmmm!!”
“Okay, clear out and give me some space, demons.”
The demon spirits quickly give room to King Azazel, Thrasher and Murmur. Then Azazel lifts up his hands. A thunder cloud builds up above them. Then he brings down his hands toward Murmur and Thrasher.
A huge thunderbolt is unleashed from the cloud!! “Kaaaa-BOOOOOM!!! “Craaa . . . ck ., . .ckl . . .le!!!!”
Murmur and Thrasher scream in pain as the reverberations from the lightning strike shatters the flaming the ice collars and gag.
They are on the ground on hands and knees. “Pant. . . pant . . .pant. . . .”
Then with a coarse whisper from Murmur, he makes a vow, “GRRRrrr . . . You humiliated me, Richard!!!! I’ll get my revenge on you!!!”
Murmur and Thrasher slowly get back up to their feet. They see King Azazel sitting in his throne. They walk over to him.
“Yeah, I made a similar vow, Murmur. But it will have to wait for the Ultimate Last Battle.”
“Yes, my King. It can wait until then. What do you want us to do now?”
“I want you to go back to Middle-Earth. Check out the orcs and goblins that are still there.”
“The last time I was there, we found them being hunted down. Should we rescue them?”
“Yes, take them from Middle-Earth. Bring them to the refuge worlds where we have the other outcasts. We need to build up our numbers for our grand assault on Earth.”
“Yes, my King. It will be done. What if they want to stay on Middle-Earth.”
“Then they can stay and die there. Tell them they will be able to join Melkor and his forces when Sauron opens the Door of Night at the Ultimate Last Battle.”
“Yes, my King.”
Murmur and his demon legion take off to Middle-Earth. “EEEEeeee. . . .!!!”
Menolly and the Master Harpers walk down the tunnel to the underground building containing AIVAS. One of the Master Harpers pushes a button on the control panel.
“I have been expecting you here, Master Harpers. Come in quickly so I can close the doors. I’ll meet you in the main hallway.”
The door slides open. A rush of air comes through doorway opeing. All twenty of them walk in quickly. The door closes when the last one is inside. In the main hallway they see the Star Smith.
“I have a conference room that you can use. Be prepared to take notes. Follow me, please.”
They follow the Star Smith down the hallways until he comes to a stop at a door. He pushes a button on the panel next to it. The door slides open. “There are plenty of seats available for all of you.”
They walk in quickly. They sit down in chairs placed around a large table. Once they are settled in, the Star Smith begins his little speech.
“It is amazing that Richard Moore was only one who can open the three files that he placed on AIVAS. With the help of the Emissaries he was able to come to our time to open them up. That wormhole tube really did a number on our time line problem. Now, I am going to open the introductory sub-file. AIVAS, open the introductory sub-file that Richard Moore placed in the main file.”
“Opening Introductory File placed by Richard Moore.”
A 3D image appears above the table. It shows Richard Moore speaking to them.
“Greetings, Master Harpers. I hope the time trip didn’t upset your equilibrium too much. The best way to approach this teaching about the Creator, is to do a series of history lessons. There is a full text of the Bible, the Tanach, Buddhism, Hinduism and the Koran available. There are also some native American Indian teachings as well. Also, I will be covering the history of various important nations that are outside of these texts.”
“Now you are probably wondering how I was able to create ice out of thin air when I put the ice collar and gag on Murmur.”
“It looks like he did think of everything, Menolly.”
“He certainly did. I love it.”
They all giggle and chuckle about the coincident.
“Even though each culture and country developed their own style of weapons fighting, it is China that contributed the most to this understanding. My martial art knowledge comes from the Shaolin martial arts. It is the study of animals on how they fight each other. I also provided an excellent selection of videos for you to view. The best way to learn the martial arts is with an actual instructor in your presence.”
“The ultimate title is the Shaolin Dragon Master. It usually takes fifty years to attain that title. Along the way, you also learn the five elements. These are air, water, earth, fire and spirit. We have been blessed by the Creator that we can do these five elements. What you didn’t see as Pern settled into its new orbit is the impact of several Ethereal Space ore rocks splashing into your equatorial ocean. This will help you to do your own magic. The proof of it will happen when you have your sunrises and sunsets. You will get the streams of the colorful lights as they race with sun shadow across the landscape. I have seen it on Twianor. It is very beautiful to behold.”
They all cheer in excitement, “Yes, we can do those five elements!! Yeah!!!”
“When you saw me, I had earned the first black sash of ten that leads to the Shaolin Dragon Master title. Before that, I had earned the seven sashes that lead up to it. That was earned during my time in school up to my eighteenth birthday.”
“Then about twenty years later, I was asked to install my 3D-Server for a new project called AIVAS. Right now, I have earned the sixth black sash. I have learned three of the elements so far. That would be air, water and earth. The videos I put here, will get you through the purple sash. It is recommended that you bring an actual Shaolin Master to teach you the higher degrees. Or, if you want to, you can come to Earth to learn the higher degrees.”
“You will find Shaolin dojo temples in many countries. The best ones are found in North America. Right now, the Shaolin dojo temples in China are slowly being rebuilt. When you read the history of China, you will then understand why they are being rebuilt.”
“Hopefully, in about a year from now, you will have a good understanding about the Creator, the angels and demons. The details will come as you delve into the material each time you study it. I will see you soon on Earth.”
“Your friends in time, Richard and Brianna Moore.”
“PS. You will have some visitors from another world. They will be refugees from another world. Their story is told on my Earth. Saryon and Joram are the two main people to contact. They will arrive on Pern in the year 2970. They will reside on the third continent on the other side of Pern. However, they have a special ability. They can create a stone composition that can absorb magic. You will find their story in another section here. It is listed under “Other Worlds”. The stone composition is used to make the Darksword.”
“What’s this? We are going to have refugees from another world? At least we have twenty years to get ready for them.”
“We might as well read those other stories from the Other Worlds. We’ll probably be meeting them during the Ultimate Last Battle.”
“Yes we will, Menolly.”
“Well, he said it will take about a year to learn the basics. Let’s start with that.”
They open the first chapter that summarizes the Jewish writings. They slowly begin to learn this is where most of the angels and demons are found.
On the Emissaries star ship, we are flying through space.
“Before we go to the next world, Richard. We think you will like watching the events at that auto show weekend when you met Tedford.”
“You have the debut of Jeff Gorton in his first race?”
“Yes we do, Richard.”
They push a button on the panel. Soon, we see go-kart race in progress. Jeff makes his way through the traffic. The other go-karts are getting upset that he is a very good racer. With two laps to go, I see that Jeff was able to take the lead for the first time. The other racers decide to box him in.
Four of the racers make a group effort to gang up on Jeff. Jeff looks to his left and right quickly. He sees they are getting ready to block him out. Just when they are about to box him in, Jeff accelerates quickly between them. He slows down slightly and let’s his rear end slide out from behind him. He makes the turn cleanly and races to the checkered flag. The others try to keep up with Jeff. However, once they enter the turn, they realize they are coming in too fast. All it takes is one go-kart to crash the other twenty go-karts.
They all pile up in the turn. Some are on top of each other. They are all moaning in pain. “Ohhh . . . .that hurt.” Then the race car official makes his way to the pile up.
“You all deserve it. I declare Jeff Gorton the winner of the race. There are no place positions for the rest of you. You will all get the distinction of Did Not Finish in the books. Is that understood!”
They all moan together, “Yes, . . . sir.”
“If I see this again in the next race, you will all be disqualified from the next race. Is that understood!”
They all moan together, “Yes, . . .sir.”
“Now remember, you are supposed to be racing each other! You are not here for a demolition race to see who is the last one moving. If you want to do that, then I suggest you go over to the figure-eight racing track! Is that understood!”
They all moan together, “Yes, . . .sir.”
Then we see the headlines in the newspaper that Jeff Gorton won his first race. He is all smiles with his trophy right next to him. We read the interview. He gives credit to Lightning McQueen for his inspiration and for me for the driving lessons.
We all cheer in excitement.
“We thought you liked that.”
“Thank you for showing it to me. So, where are we going to next?”
“The last world you will visit is where the Darksword is forged.”
“Doesn’t that sword absorb magic?”
“Yes it does, Richard. Your task here is to warn them about the coming alien invasion. The people will need to flee their world before it gets destroyed. You will be tested by them that you can do your martial arts without the use of magic. The Ethereal Space ores in your belt will become neutralized when that happens.”
“That means any magical residue in me will be gone as well.”
“That’s right. Once you prove to them of what you can do, you will be given a gift. It will be a box containing the Darkstone. We will save it for you until the time is right to forge a new sword. There will be some other metals and special gems that will be added to it later.”
“When the new sword is made, you will need a special scabbard made.”
“The new scabbard will block the absorbing energy from being detected. It will be used as a trap for Melkor.”
“Who will provide the catalyst?”
“Don’t worry about it, Richard. Saryon and Joram need to keep the secret of the Darkstone to themselves.”
“We’ll put you down outside Thimhallen.”
Soon we see an earth like image appear on the screen.
“We are now located back in your multi-verse and the year 2100, Richard. This world is located just outside your Local Group. They are located near Brentann’s world, Capella 3 in the Aurigae star system.”
“That’s good to know. Will they be coming to my Earth for the Ultimate Last Battle?”
“Yes, they will, Richard. We have placed a bluestone pillar on their world. Here is a small piece of the bluestone pillar. Keep it in your satchel. Use it as a homing beacon to find the bluestone pillar.”
An Emissary hands me a small bluestone piece. I put it in my clothes satchel. “Yes, sir.”
“Ask Saryon to find the larger bluestone pillar. Make sure they take it with them when they escape to their new world. Even then, they will think they are safe. In time, they will have to seek refuge on another world. This time, tell them about Pern. There is a third continent on the other side of Pern that is unpopulated It will give them plenty of room to live out their lives. They must be told about the people and the dragons already there.”
“Hopefully that won’t be an awkward moment when they meet for the first time. When will they arrive on Pern?”
“They will arrive on Pern in the year 2970.”
“Okay, I’ll need to leave a message on AIVAS for the Master Harpers to read. “
”Yes, that is best way to do that. We’ll keep your guitar here on the star ship.”
“Are you ready, Richard, Brianna and your fairies?”
Brianna and I hold hands together. The fairies pop up their heads from our coat pockets. “We are ready, Emissaries!!”
An Emissary pushes a button on the console. We disappear in a blink of an eye. We appear on the ground, outside Thimhallen. We find ourselves in a small clearing within the forest. We put on our cloaks and put the hoods on our heads. We pick our way to the roadway in front of us. We look both ways and walk out on to the roadway. We see a wooden sign nailed to a tree. “To Thimhallen.”
“Well, lets enjoy this walk my love. Fairies, you will have to be in butterfly mode.”
“We will father, mother, Omega. We’ll take a drink of nectar from the flowers in bloom along the way.”
“That’s fine, my fairies. You can also check with the animals around here and find out what is happening here on this world.”
“Yes, we can do that as well. We won’t be far from you.”
The fairies change into butterflies before they fly out of our pockets. Brianna and I walk hand in hand down the roadway. We get passed by riders on horses galloping toward Thimhallen. They ignore us as we walk toward Thimhallen. Once we walk over the hill rise, we see Thimhallen before us. We see a relatively large town that can hold five thousand people easily. We see smoke coming from homes further away from the town.
My fairies rejoin us as more and more people are encountered on the roadway. They fly into our coat pockets for safety.
We continue to walk down the main roadway into the large town. We see it is a mix of wooden homes and stone carved buildings. We see what appears to be their main building in the center of the town. It is an ornately decorated stone carved building.
I see a man walking toward us. “Sir, is Joram inside?”
“He is stranger.” He continues his journey down the roadway away from us.
We see there are two guards standing on both sides of the large wooden door. We see they are using a stone in their hands. Then they walk inside the building.
We walk up the steps and stop before the guards.
“We have never seen you before. Are you a Technologist or a Mage?”
“I am a bit of both, sirs. However, I was born without magic. However, this armor that I am wearing underneath this robe does contain magic.”
“Hmm . . . that’s interesting. We still need to neutralize that magic before you enter inside.”
“That’s fine, sirs. I can always get it recharged up later.”
“So that means magic is not Life for you.”
“Yes, sir. That is right.”
They put the stones near us. They see a color change on the small crystal mounted on the stone. It changes from red to yellow to green.”
“You are now clean of magic. You can enter inside now.”
“Thank you, sirs.”
We open the doors and walk inside the building.
