- Come in! Get in! An old man repeated on the other side of the door. The place was a huge hallway with huge columns and hanging lamps that illuminated it in a unique way. The lights were light blue and seemed to be offhook and floating in several places. Hanging on the columns were pictures of famous warriors, as well as statues that watched them as they walked. The floor changed their shades and on the way they observed an army of tiny soldiers. The corridor bordered a courtyard surrounded by torches; in the back there were gigantic curtains of water where the image of a landscape never seen before was reflected. Upon observing the place, with great astonishment, they realized that several of the children were gathered in the courtyard. - There they are! Charlie shouted pointing. Jack turned to see where Charlie indicated and excitedly said: -You're right! Let’s go with them! They ran and, when they arrived, they noticed that there was a tall man in a silver suit, similar to that of a warrior; He was grouping them in the center of the courtyard. When meeting with everyone, the man said: -It's a pleasure to have you here. My name is Leopoldo and I will be the

disappeared

and,

shortly

after,

some Warts ladies dressed in colorful costumes direct them to the water curtains. To everyone's surprise, the moment they approached, the curtains vanished and a large building appeared with an elegant color. Along the way there were several sculptures of unknown animals, which threw fire through their mouths, and several blue torches illuminated the atmosphere; In addition, some hidden valves that threw crystal glitter. Everything seemed wonderful until Charlie heard a deep voice that spoke loudly: -Stop Charlie, if you keep looking for the hidden I will find you and you will end up like everyone else. He heard a malevolent laugh... -Dead! Charlie asked: Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


-Who you are? The laughter was heard again and the voice replied: -You'll know soon. The wonderful place became a battlefield where a group of black fairies ate the remains of dead creatures. Apparently, they had killed them there. He could see a logo of a red scorpion on the ground; after a while, the view became cloudy and everything returned to normal. Charlie was scared. He approached Jack and asked: - Have you seen anything different? - Why do you say this? The truth is that this whole place is weird. All we need to see is Santa Claus and his elves. -I mean something bad. -What do you mean? This place looks more like paradise. Charlie was surprised, since only he had heard the voice and watched the terrifying scene. Shortly after walking, the tour ended in an entrance that had a large sign

that

read: “Lobby

students and

he entered. He was worried about the apparent hallucination and still had questions. Something He didn't understand was why they wanted to hurt him. If this monster is so powerful, why was he afraid of a thirteen-year-old teenager? Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Upon entering, he saw the ceiling of the room very high, as well as the image of the characters that were in it. Several of them smiled when they saw him. Upon entering, the Warts ladies instructed to approach the walls. Charlie followed the instructions and found some messages stuck; some had their name and others simply said something nice, but they were not addressed to anyone in particular. He was very surprised by a thought: "By analyzing the most valuable thing you have, you will realize that your family should always be your priority. Take care of it, appreciate it and always keep it together and you will be very happy." Charlie, when he read it, he felt sad, since his family was very small; He began to think about her mother and how sad it would have been to live in an orphanage, and even more so that her husband had died. She admired her mother's brave and persevering nature, although she often heard her cry in her room. His mother's family had died in a plane crash. They were returning from a trip to Hawaii to celebrate the New Year; the plane they were traveling on had mechanical failures and fell. For some reason the only survivor was his mother. She was five years old, but nobody wanted to be responsible for her; That's why they took her to an orphanage. What Charlie never understood

what

had

to

his

grandfather's


fortune. According to the stories, he was a rich man and Charlie believed that this was the reason why his mother had been taken to an orphanage, because being the only survivor, she was the heiress of all the fortune. His mother never had the initiative to find out; she preferred to leave everything in oblivion. Charlie, however, knew that he had to find out what had really happened and was determined to do whatever was necessary. After being in that place for a while and being able to share with some of the children, a whistle blew and, as in the Hall of Dreams, the tall, long-legged knights reappeared, who looked for the children; one of them said: - Welcome

to

the

meeting

room

for freshmen in

the Greatkings apprentice camp. A creature called Lola will take you to the main headquarters. To enter, you must wear a special badge. Saying this, the man handed a badge to each one and said: -Follow me and I'll take you to where Lola is. The tall man with long legs began to walk and everyone followed him. Walking down a hall, a tiny man approached Charlie and handed him an envelope. He thanked him, opened it with enthusiasm and realized that it contained a map of a place called the Recess Hall. This had a prominent place and at the bottom an annotation that said: Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


"This map indicates the location of " The Portrait Enclosure. " Here you

will

find

people: Federico Dimitri, Tristan and the most evil sorcerer that has ever existed. Go and discover your special power, since you have one

of

them

and

yet. Good luck.� Charlie was excited and, at the same time, scared. He still didn't understand what special power I could have. He took the map, tried to interpret it, but at the time of doing so, a tall man with long legs called him. He put the map in his backpack and followed the children and the man. It was a long corridor, after a good time of walking, they found a wall that had the image of a gigantic fort. In its surroundings there was a large field that bordered a forest. Charlie approached the wall to observe the painting and realized that two meters away were two giant slides, which had the colors of the rainbow. He called all the children to watch. They looked very big, but they were eager to jump. One of the men with big legs said: - Young people, I know that most of you want to jump down the slide, but for that I need you to form in an orderly manner and each one take a pillow to slide. - Pillows?

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


He turned to look at the slides and realized that around the area where they were there were many pillows. He took one and formed in line. The least It had was order. It was a disaster. Everyone was pushing and looking for a way to pass first. After a moment trying to keep the balance within the line, it finally happen. Excited, he placed the pillow on the slide; He sat down and, in a few seconds, one of the tall knights with long legs told him it was time to jump. He launched and took approximately five minutes to reach the end: He fell into a giant pool with orange and green balls. Julie, who had arrived before, was waiting for him. The place where the slides had taken them were extraordinary, but they still had no idea where they were. Charlie stared at Julie and asked: -Do you have any idea where we are? -The truth is that no, but what I do know is that we should leave this pool of balls as soon as possible. -I think you're right. When they left, they saw a signal in the distance, but it was not clear. They approached and finally managed to read; it said: "Welcome to the spectacular Recess Hall ".

Chapter 2

Charlie receives a note indicating that he has a special power. Like Charlie, each of us has a unique and special talent, or even more than one. Find out as soon as possible and make good use of them.

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


-What an amazing place! Charlie exclaimed, as they approached the sign. Luckily, they soon found their training mates, who had slipped before them. They were surrounding a creature that looked like a sphere of hair and, as they approached, the strange creature greeted them with confidence: -Hi, I'm Lola. Who are you? Charlie and Julie greeted her and introduced themselves. Lola couldn´t stop seeing them and said: -Human beings are amazing! Welcome to the Recess Hall. This will be the place where you will rest after your training. Here you will have enough time to relax, have fun and share. As the children were arriving, Lola presented herself with each one and, when they were all together she said: - Youngsters, as many of you already know, my name is Lola and I will take care of you during your stay in this place. This will be your resting place. After showing you the Greatkings training camp I

will

take

you

to

your

cabin. For

now,

we

must

continue. Lola led them to an area where there were many umbrellas spread on the ground. They look very strange; had a kind of propeller on the top and the stick that held them was longer than normal; They also had a kind of rescuer that served for the feet. -What an odd umbrella! Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Julie exclaimed. Meanwhile, Charlie was trying to make sense of the foot rescuer and the propellers. -That’s weird! He repeated while analyzing them carefully; Jack, who was watching them, told him his theory of the propellers and the foot lifesaver. Charlie was making an effort to understand him, but he thought that what he was saying was great nonsense. Lola said: -Patience, you will see that they are much more special than they seem, in a short time you will realize. I need each of you to take one and place it very carefully vertically, keeping it tight, you should stand with your feet together on the foot stool; then pull the rope that hangs on top; do it and you will see. Charlie followed the prompts and, shortly, began to rise from the ground. In the place several groups of butterflies of different colors flew and hundreds of men passing in small airplanes and balloons, who when approaching them, waved their hand and said goodbye. There were also several walls, perhaps fifteen meters high and many pictures of landscapes hanging on the walls. When they approached them, they moved and lit. Charlie was surprised by a painting with crops that looked like corn plants. In one of them he noticed a bright light, as if he were someone walking with a flashlight. He approached and felt a force

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


that attracted him and, when he refocused the painting, he saw a completely different scene. The crops were burned, as if a great fire had occurred. There were several crows that ate the remains of dead creatures, which apparently had been killed. I could see a being wearing a red hood. His face looked like a skull and his eyes of fire. The monster was on a black horse with the eyes of fire. In his hand he carried a black sword with a scorpion badge. The character followed him with his eyes and smiled when he saw him. After a while,

the scene

faded

and the

crop

painting appeared again. Charlie was terrified. Then he remembered the map that was delivered to him in the first-entry room, mentioning that he had a special power. Maybe this helps me find an explanation for what is happening to me, he thought. Something unknown was the scorpion on the sword; Apparently the scorpions represented something important. Because Luk had

the

dream

of

a

three-stinger

scorpion; Why had he visualized one of them with a red badge in his hallucination? What meaning would they have? Finally Lola instructed them to stop in an area with hundreds of statues. When they came down, Lola found them and said: -These statues you observe represent human beings who have attended the famous Greatkings training. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


-Well, apparently you won't be the only ones. Julie exclaimed. -Take time to observe them. You may find a member of your family. While saying that, he pointed to some windows that could be seen in the distance. -I'll wait for you there. When he finished what he was saying, he got on a flying umbrella and left. The children began to separate; Charlie thought it was the right time to find the place mentioned on the map. He stretched it, identified the place where he was currently and realized that he was close to where he should go. Along the way, he observed the statue of a boy who looked like him. The character had clear complexion, blue eyes and brown hair. Charlie was 5 feet 8 inches, unlike; the statue measured approximately three inches less. He approached and realized that he had a name on the plate. This was John White. -It's my father's name He exclaimed surprised and excited. Under the statue was another plaque that said: “Bold, brave and generous child; His mission was to maintain peace in the toy region.� -I cannot believe it! Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


My father was already here. What he didn´t understand is why he never told me. As he walked he realized that there were fewer and fewer statues and now he was in a place that looked like an art museum. At the entrance was a creature dressed in blue, which looked like a mole, approached and asked: - Forgive me; do you know where I can find the Portrait Enclosure? - Walk fifteen meters to where I indicate and you will find it there. -Thank you. Charlie said goodbye and continued on his way. He soon found the place. To enter, he had to open a heavy wooden door; upon entering, the entire enclosure was immediately illuminated. On his way he found several portraits. Some were dusty and it seemed that no one gave maintenance to the place; without wasting time, he started looking for the ones mentioned on the map. The first one he found was King Frederick (the seventh in the Dimitri hierarchy). When he saw it, he felt that a mysterious voice that came from a shadow in the portrait spoke to him and said: -The special power that Federico had is known as telekinesia. He could move objects with his mind; it was interesting to enter his office and see several moving objects alone while he was working. By the way, this power is not what you have. The shadow disappeared and stopped. There were still two more portraits; however, he felt that he had already entered this room before; I inexplicably knew where the portraits were. He went in search of the following: This was from Tristan. As he approached he Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


saw a shadow again and heard the mysterious voice, which told him: - The power that Tristan has is called persuasion. This power allows him to make beings and creatures perform actions outside his will, pronouncing a few words convinces them. However, this is not what you have. Charlie left and looked for the third portrait. His instinct took him to a secluded place where there was only one. Inexplicably, he felt cold. The shadow appeared again and heard the mysterious voice that said: -The power of Darkatraff is known as clairvoyance. He has the ability to perceive events that are happening elsewhere, or that are about to occur, and even feel that he is present in places never seen before by him. Unfortunately for him, it is believed that after a spell he did to increase his power, he and all his warriors were petrified; it is believed that all of them are hidden in a ghost town known as: "The City without Life." Since then, no one has approached that place. The voice stopped for a moment and then said: -This is your power and you must learn to use it correctly. Upon hearing this, all the portraits disappeared and a strong wind blew and dragged him out. Charlie left the place. Surprised by what the shadow related to him with the mysterious voice, he remembers of several occasions when he thought he had been in a place when he never really was; especially when his father died. Charlie could feel the wear of the tires; See how the giant truck Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


threw his father's vehicle, and even his expression at the moment of impact. It was something he had never been able to forget. Now he understood why he had hallucinations. What worried him was that if this was true, something very bad was about to happen. In the distance, he heard several voices calling him and headed towards the direction he thought they were. He soon found Daniel, a Brazilian boy, who told him they were all together and that he was the only one left to complete the group. Daniel directed him to where they all were. The place was a closed area, surrounded by giant windows, which showed a landscape through them. It seemed to be a forest crossed by a river and, in the background; he could see green mountains with waterfalls. Between two windows, there was a large glass door; A few meters away were Lola, reunited with other youngsters. They were restless and several talked and joked. Apparently, they had been waiting for some time. Several of them felt upset. Everyone wanted to go to the fabulous landscape seen through the windows.

Chapter 3

Many times, when things get complicated, it is best to trust people who know more than us. In this chapter, Charlie decides to find his answers with Augustine; which is a very good decision. Let us seek support and advice from more experienced people than us in what we want to resolve.

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


The door was quite heavy and Lola asked several youngsters for support to push it. Fortunately, after several attempts, they opened it and managed to leave. She led them to a path that was lost on

the

horizon. While

she

walked, Julie wondered: -Where does this creature take us now? Desperate to find out, approached Lola and asked: -Are you taking us to Great Kings training Camp? Lola smiled... -You will see; it's a surprise. Tired of surprises and especially from that creature that looked like a ball of hair with legs, Julie insisted on obtaining information, but finally gave up. -What misfortune! Why these desire to leave us with curiosity? Charlie and Jack walked forward; Julie noticed something strange: Charlie suddenly started running into the forest, apparently for no reason. Julie approached Jack and they looked at each other, as if trying to understand and explain how curious the event was. -How weird! -Where will you go so rushed? Without losing another minute, before he left so they couldn't find him, they decided to follow him. The forest was quite dense and the road was full of stones and tree branches that made walking very difficult. Jack was worried about Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


losing sight of him; ran and Julie, complained and made signs of fatigue. Finally ... After a long trip, which for Julie was worse than having run the marathon organized annually at her school, Charlie stopped. -What a relief! Suddenly they observed something surprising. Charlie seemed to be losing his balance and fell to the ground. Julie, terrified, shouted: -Charlie, for God's sake, what happened to you. Desperate and afflicted, they ran to where he was. He lay on the ground and did not move. At first impression, Jack said: -I think he passed out! Afflicted approached; He made sure he had a pulse and shouted happily: -He is alive! Julie, who was extremely distraught, let out a sigh of relief. Soon, Charlie began to move and opened his eyes in fear. -You're OK? -I think so. He responded and made the effort to get up. Jack and Charlie looked at Julie -We have to do something soon! They both wondered why he said it. - We should do something soon why? -Why do you say this? Charlie was silent as if he had no words to explain. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


-Well, I'll tell you. As I walked, I watched the forest and saw a bright light that moved and floated among the trees. I followed her, and when I approached, I realized that she was a fairy; I reached out to touch her and she hit me hard on the head. All I remember is that I had a strange and mysterious vision. -And what was your vision? I entered a dark place; an old man took me by the arm and told me not to come in, terrible things would happen to me. The man took out a mirror and showed me several bloody images. When I saw them, I got scared and asked him where I was. The man laughed cynically and wickedly said: -You won't leave alive. You will suffer what you have never suffered before; once inside, you will want to return and you will realize that it will be impossible. When he told me this, the man's eyes turned red; as he laughed, his skin began to fall and became a skull. I was really scared; I ran as fast as possible; more bloody images came to my mind. It seemed to be a war in which thousands of beings dressed in a red suit attacked others who seemed very weak; they were inferior in number. These evil beings seemed to surround a beautiful city, sacked and destroyed by them. Large numbers of creatures were sacrificed and enslaved. Suddenly, an elderly gentleman appeared and told me that this was approaching. Finally I left that dark and spooky place, woke up and found you. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Julie was surprised and scared of what Charlie had told them.

-And why do you think you had this terrifying vision? Charlie didn't know what to answer. He was confused, because the book was talking about that Tristan was about to declare war on Augustine, but apparently this was a different one. On the other hand, Drufty mentioned a war that was possibly caused by a mysterious being mentioned in caves thousands of years ago. Could it be that this is the warning of a second war? Why do they mention a final battle? Is the World of Dreams coming to an end? Charlie had no answers. -I don't know, but if I have to think of someone who can answer many of our questions, the first person that comes to mind is Augustine. -I think you're right. Jack expressed. -We must look for him -But how will we find him. - I have no idea. After reflecting for a moment, the three believed that the best solution was to look for Lola and ask her how they could find

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


him. They had already made the decision to return, when suddenly, from a tree a voice was heard that told them: - Is anyone looking for Augustine? Astonished and afraid they nodded, but none had the slightest idea where the mysterious voice came from. Trying to solve the mystery, Charlie approached the tree and tried to see if anyone was there; He couldn't see more than branches and leaves. Raising his voice and looking at the tree, he exclaimed: -Who are you? In saying this, a noise from the tree was heard, as if a giant animal were descending. Frightened, the three withdrew. Finally a strange animal came down, it looked like a giant squirrel, it was more than five feet tall. - Will it bite? The giant squirrel species approached them; The three remained petrified. When he was close, Julie threw him a big acorn and hit him in the nose. The squirrel made a gesture of pain and a strange growl; however, he approached peacefully, with one hand he stroked his nose and extended the other to greet them. -Hi, I'm Argos. Do not fear, I have no bad intentions and you, who you are. -I'm Charlie, she's Julie and the one who's hidden is Jack. Charlie didn't want to waste another minute and as the giant squirrel had mentioned Augustine's name, he asked: -Could you take us with Augustine? Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


-Yes, but only if you promise me something. -What? -That you won't tell anyone where I took you. This is a highly secret place. -Don't worry, Argos, we won't tell anyone. It is important that you take us with Augustine as soon as possible. Without wasting a minute, Argos began to walk and told them to follow

him. The

and

Charlie


Chapter 4 Sometimes several complicated events come together and we must remain calm. Do not despair, keeping the calm make us think more clearly.

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


The forest was quite dense; Argos walked at a very hurried pace. To Julie's bad luck, the run was not over yet. Despite the density of the forest, you could see diversity of insects, wild flowers and birds with bright colors. Charlie had the opportunity to find two macaws,

a

raccoon,

an

elf,

three

fairies and

several

rabbits. This experience brought back memories of the night stories that his father told him. Charlie said there was a weird animal that lived somewhere in his room. His father came every night and before bed he told stories invented by him. When they least expected, they reached a part of the forest where the road was completely blocked by an infinity of orange bushes, which were so close together that they looked like soldiers marching in a single row. Argos told them: -Well, if we want to continue, we must ask the bushes to open the way for us. Julie, who thought it was the most absurd thing she had ever heard, replied: -You've gone crazy! How are you going to believe that some bushes are going to obey us? First, they don't listen and second, they can't move. -Yes Argos, it's impossible. Charlie also thought it was impossible, but he was angry because the bushes were blocking his path and yelled at them: Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


- Silly and inconvenient bushes, which block our way, I order you to let us pass. As expected, nothing happened. Suddenly, they realized that a branch came out of the bushes and went straight to where Charlie was, who was paralyzed watching the branch. It stirred and hit him hard. -Ouch! Wretched branch! He shouted loudly. The pain was unquestionable; He jumped several times. Meanwhile, Jack and Julie were choking with laughter. Julie looked at Charlie and said: -Look! Now learn from the master. And approaching the bushes he said: -Beautiful and amazing bushes, you are the most beautiful of all the forests I've seen; Even you would be even more beautiful, if you opened the way. As soon as he said it, the bushes began to move and form a path that seemed perfectly drawn. The three were speechless. Julie was very proud to have succeeded and repeated several times: -I did it, I did it! Charlie tried to ignore her. His butt and pride had been hurt; he could barely walk in pain. There were hundreds of bushes; maybe enough to cover three soccer fields. The most incredible thing was that everyone moved in a Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


synchronized way to open a path, which seemed to have been drawn to perfection. After a long time, the road ended and they found a huge door; as they approached, it dyed in a cobalt blue and opened. With great care they entered and to everyone's surprise, they observed a beautiful garden. Charlie thought it looked like it was taken from a calendar, which his mother had with photographs of Japanese gardens. As they walked, amazed, they observed several trees, from which beautiful lilac flowers fell. In addition great diversity of plants with yellow and orange flowers, this had different shapes. Hundreds of hummingbirds flew over the place where thousands of flowers bloomed. They also observed some giant flowers that spread pollen and aromatized the environment, as well as several small bridges that crossed different parts of a beautiful stream, which cooled several sectors of the garden. In the stream they could see small waterfalls and the walkways they crossed.

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Everything looked beautiful except that some mysterious black shadows were observed among the trees. Charlie didn't care, but suddenly, on the road, three black beings with red eyes appeared. The beings communicated in a strange language and were plotting something. Charlie, Julie, and Jack, with the exception of Argos, jumped into some giant leaves that looked like little canoes, floating in the stream. The squirrel ran out and left them. Charlie was worried that Argos was the only one who knew the way to find Augustine; however, he was grateful to have been able

to

escape

from

those

unknown

beings

of

malefic

appearance. The current flowed from one side where there were many trees, which released leaves that flew everywhere. It gave the impression of an autumn, with the difference that these leaves were colored.

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Charlie saw again the shadows of black beings and more and more appeared. The water color of the stream changed to a deep red and gave the impression of being blood. The three were scared. Jack took out his bow of arrows and started shooting as many as he could; He managed to damage several of them. Julie took out her flute and when she played it, several of these beings were paralyzed. They were also worried that the stream would get bigger and bigger and stronger. Charlie told himself: -How weird! What could be the reason why the river flows more and more? Julie hit a scandalous shout: -Help, cataract in sight! Hearing this, Jack went into a panic attack and shouted heartbrokenly for help. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Charlie distrusted Julie's warning and tried to row with a stick that floated in the current, but it was so intense that it was useless. -We are lost! Shouted Jack. The waterfall was getting closer, fear invaded them; the moment they feared most approached. They shouted desperately for help, but no one heard them. Julie was the first to fall. In the distance, they heard her screams, which were terribly scandalous. Jack was next; He tried to hold on to the blade as hard as possible. Already near the fall, the last thing heard of him was a high-pitched scream. Charlie was next, closed his eyes and began to have a sensation similar to that experienced in the descent on a roller coaster. But this one seemed not to end. He fell into a pool of ice water. -What a relief! What he didn't understand was why he hadn't felt the impact. Julie smiled and was happy. Perhaps the most affected was poor Jack, who was still silent and had a paler face as a dead man. The pool water was greenish; they couldn't see anything through it. Jack feared that an aquatic snake would appear and did everything possible to get out of the pond as soon as possible. He had to learn to control fear.

Chapter 5 Charlie and his friends are presented with evil beings who want to hurt them. They run for their lives. Many times we are exposed to the dangers of people who want to harm us. It is better if we turn away from them and avoid them. Our inner peace is priceless.

The forest of yellow trees shone and hundreds of irregularly shaped leaves fell that covered much of the soil. Charlie, Julie and Jack were soaked, their clothes were dripping. Charlie felt his shoes weigh a ton and with each step he took they heard a sinister noise. -Argus! Charlie shouted , calling the giant squirrel. Apparently there was no trace of the animal. -Where can it be? Julie question. Charlie replied: -I think he abandoned us. -I knew we couldn't trust that animal! Jack annoye asked: -Then what can we do now? Do you think we can go back to the garden? -I don't think so, that place is very high. Have you forgotten about the giant waterfall? After a moment of silence, Julie said: -I have something to tell you. -What? -When we were in the garden, Argos had a bag with a bow tied at the waist, I was very curious to know what it was and I took it off to see what It had. I thought about returning it, but then the thing about the waterfall happened and I couldn't. - Wow, you're a thief. -But, what is the importance of this now. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


-The truth is that much. When I checked what it had, among all things, there was a map folded in four. I stretched it to see what it was, but suddenly the squirrel looked at me and, before I discovered it, I kept it again. -Well done! -Only there is a problem. -What? - I released the bag when we fell into the waterfall. Do you think we can find it? -What bad luck! Anyway, I think it's our only option. Let's go to the pond! What are we waiting for? And saying this, the three of them ran back to the place. Jack looked from the shore, Charlie and Julie returned to the water. After a few minutes, Charlie found it tied to some seaweed; they took it out and swam to the surface with the bag. He carefully opened it, and inside he found several objects: a comb, pliers, five acorns and the map that Julie had mentioned; it was soaked. -Let me see it! -Wait! -Don't touch it! You're going to break it. In saying this, very carefully, he unfolded the map and placed it on a rock where the rays of light struck. The map looked blurry. However, it was easy to locate where they were; It was the only waterfall seen on the map. -Here we are! Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


-Perfect! But where will we find Augustine. Julie responded quickly: -I have something else to tell you. As you watched the garden carefully, I was very curious to know where the squirrel was taking us and asked. She said it was forbidden to reveal the whereabouts of the lighthouse where Augustine was. What she didn't realize is that she gave me more information than she wanted to say. That animal talked more than she needed. Charlie said: -Well done, Julie, I congratulate you! You are the most curious person I know. Thanks to you we have an idea of where we can find Augustine. He looked at the map and soon found a lighthouse. -This must be! -I think so, the problem is how we will get there, if it is in the middle of a lake. Charlie was thoughtful and replied: -The truth is that I have no idea, but it would be better to start moving forward. -You're right. Saying this, they started walking. As they passed a road between the incredible forest of yellow leaves, Charlie again observed the mysterious black creatures with red eyes. They seemed to hide among the trees and wondered if they would live in it, or maybe they had been sent by someone who Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


wanted to harm them. What they did not understand was why there were so many. Jack and Julie had also seen them and were fearful. Charlie thought they should know if they were really dangerous, or if they were creatures of the forest. -Let's get closer. -You've gone mad? These beings could do anything to us. We don't even know if they are dangerous. -That's why I am telling you. The only way to know is if we allow them to approach. What do you think, Jack? He couldn't talk of fear... Charlie gestured to three of these beings to get close; when he called them, they approached. They walked in a strange way; they seemed to jump. -Do you live in this forest? The beings communicated in an unknown vocabulary among themselves and answered -No. His voice was deep and strong. -What brings you here? The beings returned to communicate in a strange language; and one of them asked: -Are you Charlie? -Yes. One of them gave a loud whistle and five more approached.

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


The tallest of all, pointed to Charlie and said in a loud and husky voice: -There he is! Kill him! Charlie paled. Julie sounded her flute and paralyzed them for a while. The three ran as fast as possible and new beings appeared among the trees. Julie sounded its flute, but apparently, with several of them it was losing its effect. They could see that behind them they were five chasing them. -Who do you think sent them? - Do you have any idea how we will lose sight of them? Julie pointed to a hole she was looking at the ground and asked pointing: -Why don't we jump there? Jack responded quickly: - Have you lost your mind, how do you think we're going to throw ourselves in that hole? Have you ever wondered who could have excavated it? Many black beings approached and more and more came. -I think throwing ourselves in the hole is our only chance. We must do it now! Charlie shouted. Julie followed his instructions and launched. Charlie was going to do the same and, at the moment of wanting to jump, Jack stopped him and said: -Didn't you thought about the depth of this hole? We don't even know what could be inside. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Charlie looked back, pointed at the black man with red eyes and replied to Jack: -What I can tell you is that if we don't throw ourselves, these beings will hurt us. Who knows, maybe we even end up dead. Charlie felt that someone bit him, and when he saw his side, he noticed that it had been one of the mysterious beings. Fortunately, he managed to avoid more bites and, without thinking, took Jack by the arm and threw themselves into the hole. It was quite deep; Fortunately, there were cobwebs that stopped them as they fell. Finally, they reached the ground and found Julie. Charlie asked if she was okay; she answered yes. They looked up and, in the distance, could see the unknown beings; but apparently, they were not willing to launch: thus they lost sight of them. -Well, I think they are gone! -It looks like it is. -Where are we? -Do you think this place is dangerous? -I don't know, but the only way to find out is to keep walking.

Chapter 6

In this Chapter, Charlie finds his greatest fear, but confronted him with courage. Let's be like Charlie and face our fears with the same courage.

The place was dark; on its walls were drawings that seemed written in primitive language. Like the parchment, the writings indicated a bloody war; there was a character that looked like a skull with a red hood. The three were scared. -What a terrifying character! -Yes -It seems that this place has more history than we imagined. This looks a lot like the drawings on the parchment. The funny thing is that it is not a single war; there are several and, in each, the same monster appears at the end. -Who? -I have no idea. -Thats weird! Who could it be? Charlie again had a vision. This time the mysterious being of the walls appeared, approached him and said: -Are you the one of the prophecy? -What prophecy? Charlie asked. - It is a great farce that they spread with the hope that someday they can defeat me. I warn you to leave this world or I will have you killed as I did with all the other Charlie's that have appeared. Soon he visualized a young man running with a beautiful princess; the mysterious being reached them; He drew a large, sharp sword and slaughtered it. Charlie surprised asked: -Who do you think you are to kill someone?

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


The mysterious being took a sword and thought to stick it to Charlie in the chest, but before he did, Charlie took out the sprat that had been given to him in the Hall of Dreams and, without hesitation, stuck it in his leg. The mysterious being shouted, grabbed Charlie from his sweatshirt and lifted him a meter from the ground, and said: -Prepare for battle, great loser. Charlie fell to the ground and replied: - The loser will be you. There was a loud growl and the mysterious being disappeared. Charlie returned from his vision and found himself in front of his friends. Apparently, he had been the only one who had witnessed the event. -Who you are? Charlie exclaimed. Letters began to form on the cave wall. These were written in blood and said: -Darkatraff. The three made a great leap and walked away. Charlie found a lamp, which seemed to be embedded in the wall, told them to follow it. They were looking for a way out; each step took them to the deepest part of the cave. They passed through a place where there were hundreds of stalactites and stalagmites; the fluttering of bats was heard, flying from one place to another without a precise direction. In addition, Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


they found hundreds of fireflies in their surroundings; they were lighting the way. Charlie saw the map, but it was impossible, since there was no reference point to locate.

In the distance they observed a creature as a beaver; happy to find him, they approached. Charlie asked: -Hello, do you know where we are? - Hi, I'm Fergus. This is a secret cave. It is believed that here, thousands of years ago, lived a prehistoric creature that disappeared for unknown reasons. The writings on the walls suggest that it was a war, but nobody knows what really happened. It is believed that an evil being killed this species. He disappeared and nobody else knows about him. The three were very scared... Then Charlie asked: -Can you get us out of here? -With pleasure, follow me. As they walked, they passed a bridge where they could see a lot of embedded gems, which shone and illuminated the whole place. The depth was unquestionable; Jack held on to the bridge with great force; he was scared. Julie moved the bridge and Jack trembled as he walked. Julie seemed to be having a lot of fun. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Charlie was watching the road; bright red insects formed figures of different shapes, and images of them as they walked over the bridge. The image reflected Jack, who walked almost dragged and Julie jumping behind him, looking for ways to move the bridge. Fergus directed them to some rock formations where they observed rails and mining cars. He told them that they should get on them, as they would take him out. He said goodbye and left. They got on one and in seconds they began to move. Charlie was controlling the speed with a crank he found. When they advanced they could see many precious stones and several beavers that placed them in containers. After a long trip, they left the mine and finally felt the breeze of a green field, with the view of a beautiful lake surrounded by volcanoes and forested mountains; in the field, a strange species of white horses. The place was beautiful, and perhaps the closest thing to a postcard, which Charlie had seen, from a beautiful lake in Guatemala, called Atitlan. They were surprised and admired the place. Almost at the bottom of the landscape, on the shores of the lake, they saw a gigantic lighthouse; happily smiled. Everything seemed fine, but the only problem was how they would get to the lighthouse? Charlie noticed something different in the horses. They had wings, they looked like beautiful pegasus. Admired, he asked his friends. -Are this animal’s fly? Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Jack looked at them and replied: -I think not. It is impossible for such a large animal to fly. - And what are the wings for? Both were silent. Soon they saw one of the horses fly and rise through the sky. -Look, they can fly! -It is impossible! -After all we've seen here, nothing seems impossible. In saying this Charlie insisted on going where they were. -I have an idea, why don't we use the pegasos to transport us to the lighthouse. -Good idea. Jack looked at Charlie and said: - It is not so easy, how we are going to control the pegasus and direct it towards the lighthouse. For starters, I guess none of us has ridden a horse; I think not even the best rider in the world could do this. When he said that, a voice was heard coming from one of the pegasus. The animal approached them and said: -Where are you going? Charlie replied: -We go to the lighthouse that is seen in the middle of the lake, but we don't know how to get there. -I could take you, if you want. - Please take us. He bent down to get on. The three mounted and began jogging quickly. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Charlie was excited, despite not understanding how these great animals could fly. In his world, it would be impossible. Anyway, he was in the world of dreams and everything was possible.

taken


The pegasus led them to a cliff that bordered the lake and, when they reached the edge, spread their great and beautiful wings, and rose. Charlie, Julie and Jack were amazed. At first they flew over the lake and were able to observe birds that passed very close to them. Then they descended and kept flying almost to the lake level. As they flew, they saw hundreds of thousands of insects of colors similar to those already seen in the mine. Like the previous ones, they were grouped together forming amazing geometric figures. In addition, they saw several islands that were populated by small creatures that had bright wings and lived in a picturesque town of small houses supported by miniature trees. The pegasus began to slow down, until it stopped a few meters from the lighthouse where they believed Augustine was. The lighthouse was quite tall; the steps to climb were very small, snailshaped. When they reached the top, they found nothing but a hat on the floor. Charlie picked up the hat and everything began to change. The ground shone brightly orange; Thousands of butterflies of different colors appeared flying everywhere. The sky cleared and they could see the islands where the small creatures lived and a gigantic volcano in the background. On one of the edges they found Augustine, who was watching the landscape with binoculars, like the ones Charlie had won at the toy store. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Charlie and Jack approached walking cautiously to where he was, but it was impossible, since Julie shouted: -What do you see so much?! Augustine was concentrated; he did not expect visitors; when he saw all three, he was surprised and said: -You, what are you doing here? Feeling sorry, Charlie replied: -We decided to come find you to tell you something very important. -What could be so important to come here? Charlie, agitated and trying to include as many details as he could, told him his vision and everything he had witnessed.

-Thanks, Charlie, you did well to come. The vision you had is known in this world as " sibashi " and it means that there is a probability that what you have witnessed will happen. I don't know how long but it can happen. Tristan, my brother, is being very imprudent; if we let him free, who knows what could happen. His army is extremely powerful; for now we can't defeat him. The only resource we have left is to find King Hurton's book and see if everything they say about him is true. To form an army and train it now will be almost impossible. Tristan has been training and preparing his army in a hidden way for years. My brother, from childhood, had the ambition to form an

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


authoritarian regime with the idea that everyone would work for him. My father never liked his way of thinking; when he died, my brother, because he was the eldest, had to take his place, but the people opposed; This is why they named me king. Since then my brother has held resentment towards people and towards me; He wants to form a new regime. - Do you think this vision is really about your brother or Darkatraff? Augustine was terrified. Apparently, this being had never crossed his mind. -God help us! Charlie, where did you get that name? -In the recess hall I saw him in a painting, and I had several visions of him. Also, in a cave that we passed along the road, it appeared to me and on the wall we could see its name painted with blood. Augustine's hands began to shake and he said: -God, protect us! For thousands of years, Darkatraff has been the most mysterious and evil being that ever existed. It is believed that when a civilization reaches its peak, this being appears and ends with everything. Several say it is petrified in a city known as "The Ghost Town." -And how does it end with everything? -No one has survived to tell. They say he is an evil being and is accompanied by an army so powerful that no reign has resisted. In addition, his power is beyond this world. However, it has been hidden for thousands of years and many think it disappeared

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


completely, but no one can say for sure. Charlie, are you sure you saw him? -Yes. - Then it is possible that the great battle approaches. Several inscribed in caves indicate that the day Darkatraff is going to come back, the biggest battle that has existed will take place and will depend on the decision made by a warrior named Charlie if the World of Dreams will come to an end, or Darkatraff and his army. There are two versions: one indicates that Charlie dies and another indicates that Darkatraff is the one who dies, I believe that everything will depend on the important decision that this warrior named Charlie must make. -Are you talking about me? -It is possible, although they have already contacted several humans named Charlie, who mysteriously have disappeared. However, Darkatraff is such an evil being that I doubt anyone can defeat him. The three were very scared and before asking anything else, Augustine told them: - Calm down, for now our goal should be to find King Hurton's book. The labyrinth that surrounds his palace is an extremely dangerous place that, if you are not sufficiently prepared, you will not be able to leave it alive. Indifferently, if the confrontation is with my brother or Darkatraff and his army, we are not yet ready; we Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


must recover this book; it is our only hope. For now, you already have an idea of this place. What you have witnessed is only the beginning. Prepare that you will return at any time. When he said this, he handed them some necklaces. Charlie received it and realized that he had a pendant made of crystal and diamond shape. Through him he saw the image of Augustine holding a spiral. - How strange, what will these beings have with the spirals? Do these have any meaning? Augustine said goodbye to each one; already mounted on the pegasus, he gave directions in a strange language and the magical animal spread its great and beautiful wings and rose, to cross the sky. In mid-flight, Charlie touched the pocket of his pants and found a letter. At first he thought it was from Princess Valentina, but he realized that it was from Augustine. - By the way, who was Princess Valentina? He opened it and started reading. It was short and said: Dear Charlie: Everything you propose, with effort, you can achieve. Believe in yourself and you will be surprised at what you can achieve. Sincerely,

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Augustine Julie also received a letter that read as follows:

Dear Julie: I know how much you love your pet and I know how well you take care of it and treat it. Do not worry about everything you hear him say, since he speaks in a different code that few understand. In the store where they gave it to you, they had to give you the dictionary to understand what it says. I was careful to put it inside your backpack and you'll see that not everything it says is as unpleasant and as logical as it seems. Affectionately, Augustine Jack also had the opportunity to receive a letter that said: Dear Jack: Overcoming our fears is something that is difficult for all of us, but if you realize, everything is in the mind. Do not be fooled

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


and do not let your fears control you. Trust in you and you will see that there is nothing you should fear. I know you will make it and I have very good expectations of you. Sincerely, Augustine Many thoughts came to Charlie. He had a lot of questions to ask Augustine and had barely had the opportunity to answer some. What he still did not understand was why he appeared a day before his encounter with this amazing world. In addition, he had to tell him that, thanks to his appearance, he had stopped doing his best Freestyle track. Anyway, every moment lived in this spectacular world, he could say that everything was worth it and he did not regret anything. Something that also seemed curious was why all children and creatures could understand everything he said. Don`t they speak other languages? While he felt the breeze from the lake and appreciated the spectacular scenery, he had a very strange feeling. His vision became blurred and he began to feel that everything revolved around him. He felt he was about to pass out. Frightened he grabbed the pegasus trying not to lose his balance. Each time, the vision became more blurred, until it was completely lost. He heard a song that looked like a church choir and was finally able to see again. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Chapter 8 Charlie returns to his world. Many times it happens when we return from a vacation trip. At first we do not want to return to everyday life, but we must understand that life is the sum of many experiences. Some will be pleasant and others less, the important thing is to live in the best way with what life presents us.

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


The beautiful choir had become the raucous and desperate noise of his alarm clock. Disoriented, he realized that he was no longer flying in the pegasus, but lying in his bed. He was dressed and on his shoulder he had the backpack that had been delivered to him at the toy store. This one was empty. -What happened to everything inside? All he found was the book and a blank paper. It was the same one he had already read, only when he opened it did he realize that it was completely blank. The paper was the note he had read at the carnival. -What a strange thing! He looked at his watch and realized that half an hour had passed since he had fallen asleep. What he didn't understand was how such a short time could have passed, He was surprised; he felt he had been three full days or even more in that strange world. He took the necklace that Augustine had given him and saw nothing but his reflection. He got up from the bed; went down to the first floor; near the kitchen he found a letter... Dear Charlie: You have proven that you are a leader. Get ready that the best is yet to come. I will see you very soon. Sincerely, Harry Becker Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


-But he is my physical education teacher. I thought it was... Well, maybe I imagined everything. If so, all this is a fantasy and I will not have to fulfill any mission. I think I have to stop fooling myself and put my feet on the ground. Most likely, this was all a dream. What he regretted most was that all his new friends were imaginary. The wonderful world he had gone to only existed in his imagination. What will become of Tiffany? Had she also imagined everything? While thinking and asking these questions, he heard a noise coming from outside. Missed, went out to see and realized that it was his mother who had returned from work and brought a pizza from his aunt's restaurant. -Hi Mom. He helped her with the package. He opened it and realized that it was his favorite pizza: double cheese and pepperoni. -Thats not all. His mother warned. -I have another surprise -What? -It's in the car. Without wasting a minute, he headed for the vehicle. He opened one of the back doors and found a beautiful puppy, about three months Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


old. It was a Beagle, the dog that Charlie had asked his mother a few years ago, but she didn't have the money to buy it at that time. Grateful, he hugged his mother and sat in the living room with the beautiful animal. While he was holding and playing with her, Julie's name quickly came to mind. This name was very sympathetic, as it reminded him of her friend from the World of Dreams. By the way, if he ever saw her again, he would be very happy to tell her that he had called her new pet like her. The puppy was restless; she kept running and playing. After having a good time playing with her, he sat down in one of the dining room and opened the pizza box;

He tried a piece; her mother was distracted to see the necklace she was wearing; Surprised by the way he was, looking at him he asked: -Mom, why are you looking at me so much? -Where did you get that necklace? Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


Charlie was silent for a moment without knowing what to answer. Finally he said: -I got it from a good friend. His mother made an unusual gesture. - How curious, your dad had one just alike. - What a coincidence, who gave it to him. -The truth is that your dad had an extraordinary imagination. He said a man from another world had given it to him. From a world that exists in our dreams and that is surprising. - Do you think it could be true? -You know, Charlie, the truth is that you don't imagine how much I wish it were true, but when you grow up you will realize that this world does not exist and that, instead, there is a very cruel, unjust and perverse world. If you read the newspaper one day, you will realize what I am talking about. He remained silent, because on the one hand, his mother was right, but on the other, this surprising world of which his father spoke did exist; He had witnessed it. What he did not understand was why his father never said anything about this world. Could it be that when you grow up you forget about it? -I will never forget. He finished eating and said goodbye to his mother thanking her for the pizza and for his puppy. Then he went to his computer. His puppy was playing; Charlie had a hard time holding her, maneuvering practically with one hand. He had a lot to tell Tiffany

Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


and didn't know where to start. Finally, the only thing that came to mind was:

Dear Tiffany: You were right. This world you were talking about is so surprising that I would never have imagined it existed. By the way, I saw you in a statue in the recreation room. I imagine you already know this place and you know how wonderful it is. Do you think this world exists or have we imagined everything? Regards, Charlie White After writing the email to Tiffany; He closed the computer and went to his room with his puppy. He still had doubts that this world existed. What was mysterious to him was to have appeared with the backpack that was delivered to him in the toy store and also that the book and the note were blank. In short, there was a lot I didn't understand. After his father's death, he used to write his important moments in an electronic notebook that his grandmother had given him. Each new file he created formed a drawing. By chance, the drawing that touched him this time was that of a spiral-shaped figure. This was something he still didn't understand. How important would these Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


figures be in the world of dreams? Why are there so many of them? Without wasting a minute, he left his puppy on the bed for a moment and wrote everything that came to mind, related to his fantastic journey. Usually, he used to write half a page, but this time he had so much to report that he had already written three pages and he wasn't done yet. It seemed the longest day of his life, also the strangest and the most surprising. Finally, he finished writing and placed the electronic notebook in one of the drawers of his bedside table. He lay on his bed and thought about the extraordinary adventure and how much he would like it to be true. Suddenly, he realized that bright-colored sparkles were falling from the ceiling; He saw his necklace and realized that the pendant was lit and he managed to visualize the world of dreams reflected in it.

-Great, then this amazing world exist! He took the book; It was the same as when he first found it in the World of Dreams, with the only difference that the pages were not broken and an additional page was written. Charlie settled down and started reading. Hundreds of thousands of years ago, on a planet located in an unknown solar system, there was a race known as Greetnors. The Greetnors were similar to humans, but taller. As on planet Earth, on this planet there was water on its surface, trees, animals and tribes: The Arkos and The Jestemanis. At first, everyone lived in peace and harmony. Each tribe had its territory and was respected. Written by: Alvaro Rodrigo Pellecer Benavides Literary Works Certificate Number: 2019-00020 DAC


After many years of trying to have a son, the chief of the Jestemanis was born his first and only son, he called him: "Argamon". Since childhood he was a child loved by all the members of his tribe. On one occasion, Argamon in a dream saw a great drought in which many died of hunger. He told his father what he had dreamed, but he never took it seriously. Years later, his dream came true. There was a terrible drought and many died. A violent war broke out between the two tribes, to appropriate the few remaining food. As in the dream, many died of hunger and others were massacred. At twelve, Argamon saw how his parents were killed, dismembered and then burned by members of the Arkos tribe. Traumatized, he fled and took refuge in a cave where he met an old man who took pity on him; He gave him food and stayed. He also predicted the drought, collected a lot of water and stored it in hundreds of buckets. This allowed him to irrigate some crops that he planted in the garden hidden in a part of the cave, where there was a large well of light that illuminated the entire area. The old man received him as his son and taught him the skills of combat and weapon handling. Unfortunately for Argamon, the old man got sick; before he died he gave him a ring, which would give him supernatural powers. He told him to be careful when using it, since his power was immense.

Argamon for many years remained alone and all he thought was to take revenge on the tribe of the Arkos, for the cruel death of their parents, but all the members of this tribe had already died. He learned to wear the ring and discovered the great power he gave him, it was really out of the ordinary. With him he was able to connect with other worlds. His desire to take revenge drove him crazy and with the power that the ring gave him, he created a powerful army of evil beings, known as Darkatraff; His sole purpose was to enter new worlds and slaughter complete civilizations, just as the Arkos did with their parents. They say that his army has never been defeated and there are records indicating that he came to the World of Dreams. These records are inscribed on the walls of several caves. At the bottom of the page there was an annotation that said: Get ready, that on your next visit you will live a trip that will require all your skills and abilities. Good luck. Charlie was impressed by what he said in the book. Although he was afraid of the labyrinth of terror, he was most afraid of having to face Darkatraff. He knew that the real battle would be with him and that he had to be defeated before it was too late. He wondered: Is King Hurton's imaginary army really powerful?

Are Darkakatraff and his army invincible? Despite feeling fear, he longed to return and see his friends and find himself in this spectacular world. In his room was a chest that he found in the attic of his house; there was written the name of King Hurton. It was from his father; he had never understood why he had it; now everything seemed to make sense. He took it out and, when he opened it, found a key and a note. The note said: "This key opens a door that will take you to King Hurton's hidden library, be careful of the book you take, since the wrong one will make you suffer."
