“Megan, I need your help. It concerns Sarah” I said urgently
“Alright. What do you need?” she asked
“I need you to fly the bio ship while I look for this so called house of Midas. Apollo warned me it has a huge security system though. I bet you it’s not very secure; I could probably hack it no problem” I mentioned
“Got it. I’ll be right there, just got to grab my cookies I just baked so Wally doesn’t stuff his face” she agreed. I laughed, picturing Wally stuffing his face with cookies. After M’gann grabbed the cookies and gave me one, we got on the ship and took off. I watched out the window for the house. After about two hours, I saw it. I also saw something so unusual that it made me think I was in a dream: an elephant charging the house from the back.
“M’gann, tell me I’m crazy because I swear I see an elephant” I rubbed my eyes
“No, you’re not crazy. It is really there, charging the house. Wait now it’s a giant rhino” she said. I thought she was teasing me until I saw a giant rhino charge the house. Then it changed into a liger and prowled around the front. It broke in the windows and jumped through.
“I think that’s our way in” I said, grabbing a latch from the roof. Suddenly, the roof of the house started to creak and break. A giant green thing flew up and over the house to the nearby river.
“No, I think that’s our way in” Megan said quietly. We flew over the house and I jumped in. M’gann followed, floating down quietly. I looked around and realized the room was solid gold. Literally.
“Robin” I heard M’gann whisper
I turned around to see a gold statue of a young girl with a katana in her hand. Her eyes were full of panic even though her face was calm. I looked at her nails and realized all of them were the same, darker, shade of gold, but the thumbs were a lighter shade of gold. I glanced at the map. It said Sarah was still here. I looked a Megan and realized that her eyes were glowing. She must be trying to get through to the statue. Suddenly, Megan gasped like she was coming out from under water.
“Are you all right?” I asked
“It’s Sarah” she whispered
“What?” I asked
“It’s Sarah!” she exclaimed
“How? Who did this to her?” I demanded
“I did” a voice said from behind us. He turned around to see a man standing beside a throne of gold. “I am King Midas, the first” he announced like it held some significance.
“How do you undo this?” I demanded, getting angry. Before he could answer, an elephant blared and water came raining down. I heard a shimmering sound and realized all the gold was starting to un do itself. I whipped around and saw that Sarah was de-golding. Suddenly, a weird cross between an eagle and a lion landed in the middle of the room. It roared at Midas then turned to us.
“Get on!” it urged in a female voice. I grabbed Sarah and Megan and jumped on the whatever it was.
“Who are you?” I asked
“I am Anima” she said.
Suddenly, a weird cross between an eagle and a lion landed in the middle of the room.
