"Where is Maybelle?"Alicia asked.
"I don't-"I was cut off
"Help!Help me!I need help!Please!!"A familiar voice begged.
"MAYBELLE!"we all berkata in unison.
We followed the voice into a huge hut.
"Maybelle!Where are you?"I asked.
I ran as fast as I could.I couldn't wait for them to catch up.I saw a door with a small window.I looked in and saw Ariana.When she turned back,I ran back.
"Help!Help me!Help m-MM!MUHH!MMMMMHHH!"Maybelle yelled.
I ran to the door Maybelle and Ariana were in.I knocked on the door,got out my sword,and waited for Ariana to come out.
"You said,you'd leave my friends alone!"I said.
"People say things!"She protested.
"That's no excuse.Let her go!"I shouted,moving my finger to the door.
"Never!I might as well kill you,too!"She said.
"I won't let you!"I grabbed my sword and swung it against her head,she ducked.Then she did the same thing.When I ducked,I swung at her leg.
"OW!Ooh!You did not just do that!"She yelled.
I swung again.she fell on the ground.
I ran in the room.I saw Maybelle's taped mouth,taped feet,and taped hands.
"Maybelle.Okay."I ripped the tap off her mouth.
"Ow!"She yelled in pain.
"Sorry!I'm trying not to hurt you!"I said.
I ripped the tape off her hands and feet.
"Come on!"I said.We ran down the hall.We finally got Henry and Alicia to catch up.
Then,we heard loud foot steps.
"Guys we don't have much time.You need to defeat Ariana before she takes over forever!If she does,it'll effect your land,too!You have to find the Golden Key in the Castle!And unlock her office,then open the-RUN!NOW!"She directed.They all ran a different way.Us three went right,Maybelle went left.
We heard her screaming.
"Guys,we gotta find the key!"I said.
"I think Ariana has something to do with that blood puddle." Alicia said.
We ran to the door.We followed the blood,carefully.
Alicia was ahead of us.
I heard her gasp.
We saw a woman lay in blood.
"The...Key...The...Castle...Ma-May-Maybelle.Please help me."She stumbled.
"Guys.Go get help.I'll stay with her!"I said.
They ran fast!
"Ma'am!Please stay with me.You're gonna be okay.It's okay.Please stay with me.I'll stop Ariana!"I comforted.And I know,from what I said,It had to come true.
"Where is Maybelle?"She asked.
"I-I-I don't know.But we'll help her.We need anda to be safe!"I took off my jaket off and put it on her.
"Who did this?"
