|Chapter Seven: The Battle of Al' Habeen
Back in Kahibi's Palace, Baxter is about to fight Al' Habeen....
Baxter pulls out his Scabbard, Al ' Habeen has his staff tighly gripped in his claws. "You wont be going any further." Al' Habeen promises.
"That's what you think." Baxter draws out a Cyclops, and knocks Al' Habeen out of focus.
In return, Al' Habeen takes out a Hydra and catches Baxter off guard. He steps back and re-paces himself. Baxter uses a quick pixie spell, recuperates, and does a fire dragon. Al' Habeen falls to the ground, stricken and paralyzed.
"You'll..... never...." Al' Habeen stammers. "Ugh......" He falls down, turning into ashes as death consumes him. Baxter falls back with relief.
'I need to be more attentive.' Baxter says in his mind while taking a big sigh and continuing his journey up a spiral staircase.
He reached a small room. With scrolls and shelves lined up on every wall. There were no doors or stairs, just scrolls and walls. He scratched his head.
A noise coming from one of the shelves of scrolls. The shelf opened, and a little purple Mander popped out.
It was Kirshen, and he had the command that Kahibi had given him. He looked up, but before he could even gasp, Baxter took a rather large scroll and wrapped it around Kirshen. Muffles came from inside the wide parchment that was engulfing his Mander face.
"Wh..o.... are......you...?" Is all he managed to get out of it, then fell to the ground.
A free hand popped out as he fell and dropped Kahibi's command. Baxter picked it up and read it. It sounded important, thought, so he stuck it inside one of his pouches for safekeeping.
The secret scroll door was still cracked open, and Baxter scurried through, hoping that it wouldn't slam on him. The door led to another spiral staircase, which seemed to last forever.
Finally he reached the top of the staircase. Out of breath and exhausted from the fight, Baxter sat down to take a break.
Until he looked up. As he thought, he realized that he a stumbled into Kahibi's Throne Room. It was large of course, and lined with gold anf torches.
As soon as he noticed the room, he noticed Kahibi's wand smack him and knock him out. All went black, and Baxter was soon to be in grave danger.....
