Hey! This is my entry for the 2012 Game of Riddles Contest!
A long time ago, on Daxia, at the headquarters of The Order of Mata Nui...
Trinuma entered in Toa Helryx’s room.
- Some member, including myself, preceived strange things.
- What kind of strange things? – asked Helryx bored.
- Little... beings. Around the building.
- Oh no!
Then a lot of little beings came in the room, led by their king, a gold-colored Siska. Yes, those little things are the Siskas. Helryx knew this.
The king started the talking:
- I am king Sikas. We are here in the name of the peace! We want just to stay here for a week, and eat enough food, after we leave this place! We won’t kill nobody, I swear for my right hand!
- We will roost you – answered Helryx anxiously.
- Why we won’t kill them all? – whispered Trinuma to the Toa.
- Here are many from them like the Stone Rats. They are here a month ago, at least. They have powers, like us. They can kill all of us… And their names!
Sisika and Sasaki were just “loompas” in the tribe of the Siskas. They are friends, forever. And they were in Helryx’s room with with a lot of another Siskas. Sasaki is the black-colored, he has psionics power, Sisika is the yellow-lime-colored, he has no power. Or he just don’t know about it..
- I want to be one of the king’s bodyguards! Maybe I haven’t got power, but my blades are sharp!
Sasaki looked questioningly on Sisika. He always looked like this, he always gave questions with his eyes.:
- But you are strong!
- Where, where???
- In your soul, you are a hero.
- But I am just a loompa! A title free guy who has no power.
- But I am here with you. I don’t wanted to be a warrior without you. I am a loompa just for you! – and he looked again questioningly.
Then the king came with his bodyguards. Sisika felt that, this is the best time for the promotion. He said that to Sasaki, he needs to say just good things about him to the king. And he jumped in from of the body guards.
- My king! I am just a loompa, but I feel that If I will be one of your bodyguards, I will make a prang!
- Who can prove this statement? – asked king Sikas.
- Me. – said Sasaki – I feel that he is a hero, just he haven’t got odds to convince this. Let him to be a bodyguard!
- Loompa! I let you to be a life guardsman. You are brave, not every loompa would have done it this. Tomorrow check in.
- Thanks, my king!
For the king’s commands, the Siskas have killed a member of the Order of Mata Nui. Without splurge! Sisika then was sad. The king lied! Sisika talked over a plan with Sasaki.
Later he checked in at the bodyguards. There was just fifty, and he was there! For the king’s command, they had to make an oath about that, they will protect the king. A few hours later, they went to Helryx’s room. With the corpse. Helryx frightened. The king said:
- If you won’t hand over this island to us, we kill more and more members!
- You lied!
- Yes, because if I say that I am here in the name of peace, you won’t watch us. You were silly!
Then Sisika jumped behind the king with his blades:
- You too!
- You made an oath, you can’t hurt me!
- Really? You sworn for your right hand. You killed somebody. Now you need to lose your hand.
- No. You are weak! I see!
- Maybe my body it is. But – then he looked on Sasaki – I am strong in my soul.
And he raised his blade, but the bodyguards has arrested him.
- All of bodyguards, arrest him! – shouted the king.
The king remained alone. Then Sisika shouted:
- Building! – this was the code word.
Sisika looked in Sasaki’s eyes. He has not looked questioningly. He was confident. And he dropped his climbing claws, to the king’s right shoulder and it has hit it. The king’s hand has fallen down with a painful screaming.
- You were a good king for a long time. But your heart has been evil. We don’t need this!
- He has right! – said Helryx – Choose a new king! Vote for somebody!
Then Daxia rang with Sisika’s name.
Then the riddle:
The first was strong, though not the way you think:
Sisika was weak, but brave, strong in soul.
The second gave the questions, thought right out of the brink
Sasaki has always questioningly eyes.
They were a small team, some would say.
Yes, they are both.
These little ones were the loompas in there own way.
I know that, the oompa loompas are little beings. But I made this in figurative sense. I named the title free Siskas: loompas, what means: "peasants".
And Final Shot! Do not forget to comment and rate! :)
