Ch2 A message in the dark
(2nd chapter and like what many of you have said I have many grammatical errors and I will be fixing them soon.)
(2 days after the celebration in the candy kingdom.)
Fin wakes in the morning; he sees Jake is still asleep. He puts on his clothes and makes his way to the attic. Once there he checks if the area is clear and pulls out the package the ice king had given him. He checks the dimensions of the box, trying to find any indication of what its origins may be.
"All right, into Pandora's lair I go" he says before opening it.
Once it was completely open he pointed the light at it to get a clearer view of the contents. He sees a hollow message cartridge.
"Where is that player?" he looks for the hollow message player he had gotten from his father.
He plugs in the cartridge and press' play. The bright light shines and the figure of the ice king appears. He seemed stressed and worried. He was holding his crown, revealing his bald head. Then he begins to speak.
"Finn if you are listening to this, which means either I am now dead. There is so much I wish to share with you but so little time." he begins walking back and forth preparing his next words carefully.
"There is a great evil coming to Ooo, and it will not stop till everything and everyone is dead. I have to say that I am at fault. You see long ago before the mushroom war I was a scientist. In my department we researched old world artifacts and there application into weapons." he then places his crown on his head.
"We had recovered 7 artifacts, one of which was my crown here. But the others were put to use in weapons for the military. We developed these weapons to fight a war between governments. But in the end we all pushed each other to the edge and our weapons were launched. But there was a problem. One weapon code named Pontifex Mortis. We placed within it the heart of fire. The strongest of the seven artifacts. Once we had launched it, it took on a mind of its own. It ultimately absorbed the other artifacts, but by then me and the crown had hid in safety."
"Well after the creature destroyed the world, dormant; and all the artifacts spill themselves into the world, hidden from life. And In time the world grew from the ashes. Life is what you see now. But the beast will return. And the only way to destroy it is to collect all the artifacts again and become the ruler of their power."
"But why me" Finn asks expecting an answer, but is given nothing.
"Only a human, can hold the power of the artifacts." The ice king continues
"I only know the location of 2 of the artifact. One being my crown and the other a sword forged from demons blood. I believe the last known owner was your step father, Joshua. Good luck Finn. Oh and tell the princess I am sorry, I knew the only way to lure you here was to kidnap her. And I truly meant her no harm. And one last thing, it's about your past."
Finn comes closer to the screen anticipating good news. But the message was interrupted by a crash.
"Quickly before there is no more time. Finn... your family...parents... Still..." and with that the message died. Leaving Finn disappointed wanting to know his last words, the answers.
"God damn it! I was so close..." Finn sat there crying in frustration.
After an hour of being in the attic Finn goes back down to find Jake already cooking breakfast.
"Dude were where you this morning, you almost missed this awesome everything burrito." Jake said while pointing at the immense roll of dough and meats.
"I've been doing some studying. And I'm not hungry"
"Well if you say so" then Jake grew and swallowed the entire burrito whole.
After they had finished breakfast they headed out to go on their usual adventures. But the only thing on Finns mind was the cryptic message of the wizard, of Simon.
(Thank you for reading. Hope you enjoyed it. Review, rate, and comment! Oh and I will begin to introduce OC's by the next chapter. And as some of you wanted I have decided to not make it FxPB, it's just become to cliché. So I have no idea where the relationships in the story will lead, but ill cross that bridge when I get there.)
