The day before Twilight but after Midnight, Chapter 7: Back to the Kingdom

The two sisters sat there staring at the walls, wondering what to do next. Once in a while they would look at each other and turn away, imagining that they were dreaming. But there would always be a small chance of hope that they weren’t. Midnight turned to her sister, who turned to her. This time, she kept her eye contact with Twilights. Tears rolled down her pink cheeks as huge blobs. Her light blue dress was gently torn at a few sides and was wet with tears. Her face and hair were a mess and needed remaking. The only object on Midnight, that was still dry, was her light blue pendant, with a silver crescent moon in the centre. This held her magic very tight so no one could steal it from her. Twilight was looking identical to her, all tears, gown, hair, and pendant were identical to Midnight’s right now. Finally, Midnight reached out her hand to tough Twilight. She gasped and smiled. Twilight looked upbeat for a second, then joyful the other. They both hugged each other for a second, then tore themselves apart.

 ” What did you do with that girl?” Midnight asked nervously.

 ” That was Crystal! She told me about what was happening back in the kingdom.”Twilight replied. 

” So, Dusk is trapped and we need to save him?”

 ” Yes, we need to save him,” Twilight said. Midnight stood up and rummaged around for a bag. She then started to pack items in it. Twilight stared for a minute, then helped Midnight pack.

 ” Let’s go find our friends.” Midnight said confidently. Twilight nodded, then held her sister’s hand. She closed her eyes and unlocked her pendant with the other. She sprinkled a few shimmers of blue and silver dust around Midnight and herself. She opened her eyes and closed them once again. She said three words, then vanished with Midnight into thin air.

 ” Take, us, home.”The two girls arrived and landed in an awkward position of yoga. They stood up, and navigated their way through the thick vines and plants, to the hourglass room. They stopped at the doors and found him. They ran over to the giant hourglass, which was now turned into a cylindrical tube with many shimmers of blue and silver dust. 

” She’s draining all of his power, strength, and magic!” Midnight gasped. She ran over to a corner, which had a male figure, struggling free of a “stampede” of “snake-like” wires which were wrapped all over him. His dark blue robe had rips and tears, along with many stains. His face had cuts and bruises from the past and present. Twilight stood still, frozen like a solid block of ice. She peered into the darkness of the corner her sister ran to and ran after her. 

” Here, these will be easier to cut the wires with,” Twilight said, handing Midnight a pair of wire cutters, with blue and silver lining, she pulled out from the bag. Midnight and Twilight both struggled to free the male figure, but eventually freed him. 

” Uhh…. thank….you…..friend……..Twilight…….Midnight…….saved…….me.” The male figure said. He looked up at the sisters and hugged them.

” Happy to help,” Midnight replied,” Dusk, the God of the Night!” Dusk looked up at her and smiled. She smiled back, but then her smile turned into a frown. Dusk fell to the ground and was groaning more loudly than before. 

” Break…..cylinder…….draining…..power……faster…,” Dusk said under the groans. Midnight looked at the cylindrical tube and realized that Dusk was right. The tube had more power than it had at first. twilight rummaged through the bag and gave Midnight a couple things to use, to break the tube. An apple, wire cutters, potato, sponge, and a pillow. Midnight and Twilight threw as hard as they could but the tube wouldn’t budge. 

“We’ve tried everything in the bag! There’s nothing that can break this tube.” Midnight said sadly. She began to cry once again. Twilight had almost given up but remembered something Dawn and Dusk had told them.

” We give you both these pendants, not for jewellery, but for your power to be locked up and used whenever you want it to be. Using this power, you are able to do anything to defeat the dark side any time you need to. But, there is a disadvantage to your magic. This is very strong magic, so, you must use only a pinch, wisely, only once every day. Use the magic wisely.”  Twilight looked at her pendant, then at Midnights. She used hers to transport them here, and Midnight hasn’t used hers at all.

” Midnight, use your magic. Just a pinch, and throw it at the tube!” Twilight said 

” Huh??!!” Midnight questioned. 

” Remember what Dawn and Dusk said when we got our pendants!? Use a pinch, throw it at the tube, and say, break this tube and store Dusk’s power once again.” Twilight yelled. The room had gotten colder, and the wind had stopped blowing a gentle breeze, into a tornado of heavy wind. Midnight looked at the tube, grabbed a pinch of magic, then said the words. She threw as hard as she can and waited. The tornado had stopped, and the room was back to normal. But where was Dusk??
