A few hours later, I finally found it. Reaper was right, it was nothing but a giant shadow. This looks like my kind of place.
I land my ship near some trees, grab my light saber, and get out. I walk a few feet and a figure appears before me. I put my light saber in front of me and ask "who are you?"
They say nothing, and continue to come closer.
"Who are you?" I demand.
They stop just a few feet in front of me and a face appears on the figure.
"I am Storm Warden. You need to leave," he says.
"I don't mean any harm. I was just looking."
"Go no further. You need to leave, now." His face grows angry. He's getting annoyed. Maybe I could trick him into staying.
"I tell you what... I'll leave on one condition."
His eyes narrow and he takes a few minutes. "What condition?" he asks.
I smile and say "I'll leave if you tell me why the shadow is here."
He takes a great sigh and says "The shadow is here because the beach calls to it. We are here for a reason. That is all I can tell you. Now you must leave."
I stand there for a moment and give in. "Fine, but I will be back."
I turn around walk back to my ship. I look over my shoulder and I can't see him anymore. When I reach the trees where I parked my ship, I walk past it and go down the other side of the beach. I make sure no one is following me and continue down the beach.
A few miles down I come up on a sand castle. This is not your normal sound castle. It's towers are so high, that you cannot see the tops. The walls are thick and they stretch for a mile. I wonder who lives here. I wonder if anyone else knows about this? I don't see anyone around but I'm still cautious as I walk up to it. I'm thinking that since it is a sand castle, it should be easy to knock over. Wrong! I try to cut into the walls with my light saber and nothing happens. I take my hands and run it along the walls and it's as hard as a rock. How can that be? It's sand! Not cement! I hear a noise and look to my right. The gate is opening, and there are people coming out of the castle. I watch as the last person leaves and I slip inside before the gate closes. Luckily, there was a wall just by the door and I hid behind that. I look around the wall and see a few more people in the middle of the castle. It's amazing. The walls go as high as the sky and the coral, that is everywhere, is all different colors.
I feel like someone is watching me and turn to my left.
"Geez! Dude, you just don't sneak up on someone like that." I say, still trying to get my heart back to normal rhythm.
It's that Shadow dude. "I told you to leave!" he yells.
"Dude, keep your voice down or your going to get us both caught," I say as I look around to make sure no one heard him. I turn back to look at him and he says "I warned you." He throws his hands up in the air and a ball of light forms between them. Everything goes black. I wake up, and I'm back in my ship. What the hell. I bang my fist on the floor in anger. I can't believe that. I look around for the time and my jaw drops. I've been gone for seven hours. Reaper must be worried sick. I jump up and speed off back to Ambrosine.
