"WE'RE ALMOST THERE GUYS!" Fire yelled as we ran up the stairs. At the top of the stairs stood a large wooden door, one with the words [Enter the lair of Fox and Driphytr. Turn back now, or suffer!] carved into it. "What should we do, Eb?" Riae asked me, "I KNOW!" Fire yelled as he rammed into the door, knocking it over. "OH COME ON! Did you have to destroy the door? I mean, we built that ourselves! A'ight! Now I'm angry, Get ready to pay with your lives, here comes your beatin!" Yelled an orange fox from across the room. He had a black stripe on his right eye, a black ring on his tail, and a puff of unkempt white fur on the end of it, He held a large ham Driphytr mer in his right hand, and a mace in the other. Right behind him was a blonde tiger; who was wearing a hat with a black D on it. He wore a giant shield and a long sword, it seemed hopeless to try to run past these guys, but Snow had an idea, she elbowed me in the gut, and then whispered in Fire's ear. "AWESOME! LET'S DO IT!" Fire yelled as he ran toward the enemy. He jumped in the air, and then brought down his scythe of fire on the fox, who lifted his mace to block the strike. Then Snow gave Len a quick kiss on the cheek "Go save the prince" she whispered to him, then ran forward, holding her pistols upside-down and firing with her pinkies. She unleashed a wave of ice bullets, which the tiger deflected with his shield. Snow jumped in the air, and the tiger raised his shield, until it was right above him. Snow landed on the shield and yelled "NOW!" I nodded, grabbed everybody, and jumped over the tiger and wolf, who were too distracted with Fire and Snow to worry about us. "Their gettin away brother!" The fox yelled, the tiger nodded, and tried to attack us, but couldn't move, since snow was onto of his shield, and firing. "Damn it!" Fox yelled and he pushed fire away, "I'm not lettin them escape!" Fox tried to jump over his brother, but couldn't, because Fire was getting ready to strike with his scythe, "Meh! I WON'T LOSE TO YOU!" Fire yelled and he brought down his scythe which was deflected again, this time Fox smashed his hammer into Fire's ribs, which made a loud cracking sound. "FIRE!" Snow yelled as she kept firing into Driphytr's shield, which wasn't doing much. Len stopped and looked back from the bottom of the stairs when he heard her yell, he watched, clenching his dagger, ready to help. Fox walked up to Fire, and smacked him in the head with his mace, Snows staring in horror, rage slowly filling her body. Fox lifted Fire by the arm, Fire barely breathing now, on the verge of dying, and then threw him against the wall. "Keep watchin girly! Your next!" Fox yelled as Driphytr threw Snow off of his shield, knocking her against the opposite wall. Snow dropped her guns, eyes full of tears, she yelled her dying brother's name one last time, and then created blades of ice that covered her hands. She stood up, her eyes now completely white, fur standing on end, with bits of frost coming off it. She walked over to where her brother was, Fox tried to attack, but Snow was too fast, but before the attack could hit Driphytr jumped in the way, taking the hit. Fox ran over to his brother, who was wounded badly. Snow sat down by her dead brother, placed his head in her lap, and whispered "It's ok, it's all over now." "NO! SNOW! PLEASE!" Len yelled from the stairs, but before he could run to her, she froze the entire room in a flash. Everything was covered in ice, the brothers were ice sculptures, and Snow was still sitting in the middle of the room, holding her dead brother, tears of ice rolling down her cheek. Len stood there, tears racing like bullets down his cheeks. "No.....please no..." "Len, we must go now" I said as I put my hand on his shoulder, pulling him away "We'll come back, after we save the prince, I know how we can save her, but for now, let's give her some space, and time." Len nodded and started running up the stairs, pouring tears. "Come on, I REALLY wana fight someone!" Tilyer said as we all ran up the stairs, "Me first, big boy!" Dark said, as she poked his cheek. Tilyer nodded, and we continued up the stairs, unaware of what was in the next room, Unaware of the daring fights about to happen, but one thing we knew; it was them, or us.
