The hall was long and dark, the only light was a faint blue glow coming from the end of the hall. There were dusty hundred year old paintings hung on the rock walls above torches which had nothing in them but ash.
This was scary but it was not real, it was a dream, the same dream that i have had every day for the last 10 or so years. I have had it for such a long time and yet it still scares me.
Back in the hall, after almost an hour of walking i have reached a huge golden door. I pushed open the door and walked through.
I was standing on a small balcony now that overlooked a huge room that looked like a basketball stadium. From my years of experience with this drea, I knew that this was a courtroom.
I walked along the balcony until I reached steps. The steps were made of gold as was the railing, the walls, the seats, and the ceiling.
I walked down the steps, past hundreds of rows of seats until I reached the first row.In the center there were five seats arranged in a closed circle with another seat in the center.
My dad was sitting in the front row, well my dream dad that is. He looks nothing like my real dad Kevin Wood the somewhat famous author.My dads hair is longer and darker, his eyes are a lighter shade of brown and he is a few inches shorter.
Sitting on the other side of the room was my brother Viktor, in the dream he was the son of my dads rival Darwin Cobra. I just stood there staring at my brother until Dan, my dream dad called me.
“Lance, sit the council will be here in a few minutes”
I sat and watched as ten men in official looking clothing walked in and sat in the front row, thoses were the generals. A few minutes later five more men walked in and occupied the five seats in the front, the Council.
After twenty minutes the prince walked in and took the seat in the very centerm, then everything went quiet as he raised his hand.
“We are gathered here this evening for the final day of the case between Dan Wood and Darwin Cobra” He said. ” Mr. Wood, you know the drill, if you do not have the evidence stating that Mr. Cobra was the one who killed those ten officers you will be put to death on account of fraud.”
At that moment I looke dover at the Cobras, they were smiling. At the sime time I heard my dad mumbling “I need more time… I need more time… Just ten more minutes.”
I could tell that one of the council members looked uneasy, his name was Raun Jacobs, a good friend of mine and my dads, in the dream of course. Then he stood, trembling.
” Mr. Wood, one of the three most powerful men in the world.” He said” Surly you must have gathered enough evidence to put Mr. Cobra behind bars and I know that you do otherwise you would not have been a prince like you had… If not please step foward.”
Dan sttod and took two slow steps towards the center just as the door behind us slammed open and three men came rushing in.
” Hold it!” One of them yelled.” We dont just have enough evidence to have Darwin arrested, we have enough to shoot him on the spot. You see, Dawin Cobra is trying to kill us all!”
” you see” The man said.”He did not just kill those officers. We did some research on Mr. Cobra and we have found some disturbing news.”
“Did you know that he killed a family in New York, He murdered a young boy in Boston and he is responsible for the bombing of the Marcon Terminal a few weeks ago?”
“Its not just them, he plans to wipe all of us off the face of the planet. We were able to hack into his computer and gather info that leads up to this.”
He handed a few sheets of paper to the prince which was quickly read.
“Is this true Mr. Cobra, there is enough info here to put you away forever. Guards bring him to cell 14, Mr. Wood you are free”
Everybody in the room cheered, I stood and clapped along with them.
Dad stood grabbed me by the arm and we began to walk towards the exit,I wish i could of made it to the exit sooner, before the violence.
We heard yelling from behind. I turned and saw all four guards on the floor and Darwin standing above them with a knife in his hands.
One of the guards stood up again but in seconds he was blasted back into the first row of seats by the force of his punches.
Darwin came ruching at my dad but he had to get through me first! He tried to push me out of the way but i was able to grab him by the hair and i flipped him. I have no idea where this strength came from, but my dream self was so much stronger.
Suddenly a chair was smashed on me, I hit the floor and rolled over to see Viktor standing over me. He was holding a sword and was ready to bring it down on me.
Quikly I felt around the broken remains of the chair for something I could use. I grabbed a bent chair leg and brought it up. It contacted with the side of Viktors head and down he went.
I stood up but in seconds I was down again and this time Viktor had two knives in his hands, both were aiming for my heart.
He took on step and launched the blades at me. He was too fast, I would not be able to dodge that but luckily I did not have to.
My dad leaped over me, twisted in the air and grabbed the handle of the knife. When he landed he didnt even have to move and the knife was soaring back towards Viktor.
Viktor was able to get out of the way but his dad was not so lucky, the blade caught him in the shoulder. He fell to his knees but still, he did not go out without a fight.
As a guard grabbed him by the waist and struggled to keep him down, Darwin pulled the knife out of his shoulder and sent it through the guards stomach.
He tried to stand up but could not, he had to give his last words while on his knees.
“You think you may have me beat!” He said.”But you do not, it is true , it was me who has done all those things but it does not matter, all the pieces are in their places. Even with my death I can still cause chaos to this world even a hundred years from now. Even with me gone, I have won.”
The last thing he did was pull something out of his pocket, it was a tiny crystal.
“He has a time crystal, get him!” somebody yelled.
Before anybody could do anything he had dropped the crystal.
A massive explosion shook the building and everything went dark.
