Chapter VII

January 3, 2009

The next morning they awoke to the rumble of thunder. The sea was choppy, and gray. The sky was a dark gray, the rain clouds were pitched black. The rain looked like dark arrows. The water puddles froze under the insulation of the snow, creating a very slippery island. The whole of it was depressing. “Let’s just stay inside the cave today. We have enough food.” said Dexx. “In Russia it is like this every day.” said Reznov. “I wouldn’t get used to living like that, ever.” Announced Jon. They sealed the cave entrance with a large boulder, and started a meager fire. It wasn’t warm at all, but it was better than being stuck out there. Half way through the day, they rolled the boulder aside and peered down onto the first step of the island, Flooded. It wasn’t going to get any higher, which was lucky. The pattering of the rain was maddening, so they talked the day away. They talked about many things. Like the war they just figured out was real. It was terrifying learning about a war in your home country. You worry about the ones you know, your home, and your life. At dusk they rolled the boulder aside once more. It wasn’t as bad but still flooded. Jon was staring at something; he quickly drew the boulder back in place. “It will be clear by tomorrow.” said Jon. Reznov was fiddling with something he had recently drawn out of his pack. “What’s that?” inquired Dexx. “It’s an old Russian game. We do it when we are bored. It’s a maze that you can rearrange into a new one each time.” said Reznov. To respond to Dexx’s look of confusion he beckoned Dexx towards him. “See? Just push the sides and they rearrange the little walls inside. That there is the ball you’re trying to get through the maze. Go ahead try.” said Reznov. Dexx fiddled with the sides then started shaking the small game around. It took awhile for him to get it through, but he did it. “It’s a fairly good sized one, good job Dexx.” said Reznov. “Thanks, but I think that was luck. I’m still confused.” It was a strange game, a random maze each time to work a small ball through. It’s a wonder to most people but it’s fairly simple engineering. It doesn’t use electricity or battery power. It’s hard to explain but I’ll try. The maze is configured of 10,000 tiny manual shards of metal. From the sides you push down a small lever, one of many, and it randomly chooses a shard of metal from its inner body. There is a screen in the middle covered in glass. A small ball bearing pops out of a pocket at the beginning of the maze. Then you just turn the maze around until it reaches the end. “Here. I have many, take one.” Reznov said to Dexx while he handed him a rougher smaller version of his. “Thanks Reznov.” Dexx said with a confused smile. “Dexx I need to talk to Reznov privately.” Jon announced. “Ok dad, I’ll be in my sleeping bag.” said Dexx. “I didn’t want to startle Dexx, but when we moved aside the rock I saw a pack of rail wolves near us.” said Jon. “They are very dangerous creatures, Good meat though. Perfect food I think.” said Reznov with obvious excitement in his voice. “Dexx we are going hunting. We will be back in a few hours.” said Jon. “It’s almost night dad.” said Dexx. “What we are hunting will sustain us for awhile. They will be gone soon.” said Jon. Rail wolves are the strongest and smartest of their kind. They are not to be messed with. Hunting them is often a horrible idea. But their meat is filled with minerals and vitamins and great taste. It’s a loose everything or gain food for a week. I know what I would pick, but they are low on food. I still wouldn’t pick it. Their chance of survival is slim. But they have no choice, I hope they live, I highly doubt it though.

They drug the Russian into their cave and lay him down on their makeshift bed. They gave him some water and let him rest. “Why is a Russian in Japanese water space? It’s illegal.” said Jon. “Maybe he just looks Russian.” said Dexx. “Look at his armor. Belted leather with metal disks covered with horse hide, Russian.” said Jon.  Russians really liked light armor with mobility. The disks allowed parts of their torso to bend. The belts were on the top half of the torso and on the a...

December 30, 2008

When the morning came it was dark and dreary.the trees were plentiful on this step compared to the first one, but it still was pretty low. They didn’t make a fire so they were cold and grumpy. Jon found a patch of Morsain plants. Morsain was founded in Japan, it’s used for curing obscure poisons, such as Drak or Felmere. It also tastes pretty good. Jon gathered a few sprigs and Dexx found a patch of fire thistle. Fire thistle grows in desolate cold places but gives off a sharp sting of he...

Chapter IV

December 29, 2008

It was a somewhat gray morning. They took in the mountain’s height and realized that it was stepped, like a huge staircase. There was a step about 30 feet above them. They covered all the ground on the coastal shelf and on the first step so they decided to get on the next one. When the boat went down the edge of it scraped the edge of a sharp coral and ripped a little bit of metal off of it. So they gathered that and hammered them into stakes with a rock. They could use the stakes to punctu...

The next morning, they emerged from their musty limestone shelter. “dad I miss Japan.” Sniffed Dexx. “Me to son. There isn’t much left for us there though. The Hirosaki wouldn’t want us anymore. That boat cost millions.” Said Jon. Dexx stiffly drew his leather cloak tightly around his torso. Jon shivered and rubbed his chest. They both were fit so they ran this time to cover more ground. They found a few more trees. Jon chopped them this time. Dexx spotted some purple plants and d...

“How? Why? Wha-  hu- what?” cried Dexx. Receiving no answer from his father he turned to see, his father was obviously very shocked. Perhaps even more shocked than Dexx. Speechlessly Jon analyzed the chance of their survival. Quickly he stopped thinking about that for the answer was obvious. They wordlessly went to where the rope ladder was and peered into the deep murky ocean. They saw a distant black shape far far under them. Luckily they both always carried backpacks. Dexx’s containe...

Chapter I

December 28, 2008

the silent Japanese vessel was riding along the south pacific ocean. Approximately 874 miles due-south of Yokohama. Jon and Dexx ,father and son, were aboard that lone vessel. They were somewhat explorers if you will. This was their 76th mission. An ominous number for some odd reason. They were nearing a small island. The magma energy level was slowly decreasing, which indicated past volcanic activity. The two men weren’t expecting an island there. It was strange, the sonar radar was readin...
