The nation on Enalica had been an ally on Rainos since Unbinding, and it was here I was hunting rumors of a Black Lotus offshoot. But in my hunt, I encountered someone totally unlike anyone I had ever meet.
The Black Panther.
The Black Panther was absolutely notorious. He was an extreemly skilled fighter, and had been one of the Black Lotus' strongest men. But that organization had crumbled. It was rumored, however, that he ran another organization-The Shadow Guild. He was dangerous.
And worse still, he was swinging his sword at me.
Our blades clashed, as I attempted to reason with him.
"We don't have to be on different sides," I told him. He merely growled in anger.
"Whatever your master is paying you, I can likely double it," I told him. With that, he lost his temper.
"I am not taking your money, Jonathan Gideon! I am going to kill you today, as I killed your father before you!"
My heart swelled with anger. "You evidently had a good reason to kill him, I suppose," I replied sarcastically. But inside I knew what he said was true. I felt an avalanche of grief, and sorrow.
"But for him, I would have been King of Mythron," the Black Panther yelled at me. "He ruined everything!"
"You would have made a crummy King," I yelled defiantly.
In my moment of shock, the Black Panther slid his knife into my stomach. I knew searing pain, the likes of which I had never experienced.
"I killed your father, and I just killed you, Jonathan Gideon," the Black Panther hissed.
I lay on the ground, slowly dying. I had to get to Max's estate......had to get to Max's.....had to.......
"Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen."
Builder's notes: Boy, this was a pain to build! Some thanks needs to go to Thomas of Tortuga's Build , it helped a ton with the trees. A usual shout out to my helpful critics, Graeme, Reese, and Joseph.
Author's notes: The Black Panther is back! I must say, revamping season 1 is soooo fun to do. But tell me what you think!
