Shanra: “You two stay here. I’m going in there. Should I bring the entire Shadow Serpent, or just a piece?”
Togataka: “The entire creature, and alive. Oh, and there’s something you should know.”
Shanra: “What is it?”
Togataka: “I was ordered by the Order of Mata Nui to create that chemical. Have you heard of them?”
Shanra: “Yeah, once when I was in Voya Nui, I met a guy named Axonn. He said he was a member.”
Togataka: “Well, good luck.”
Shanra takes a step, crossing the border. In the blink of an eye, it’s so dark around her that she can barely see. She turns around, but there is no sign of Togataka and Tagitiki.
Shanra: “Togataka? Tagitiki? Hello?”
No response. She gulps, and starts walking through the dense forest. All around her, she sees red eyes looking at her from the shadows.
Shanra: “Well, at least that rumor about no plants in here is wrong...”
Someone: “Well, actually, trees are the only plants that grow here.”
Shanra jumps up and turns around in mid-air.
Shanra: “Who’s there?”
Someone: “I’m not there.”
Sharna: “Oh, haha. Very funny.”
Someone: “No, seriously. I’m not there. I’m everywhere...”
Suddenly, trees around Shanra start rotting away.
Shanra: “Are you ‘Him’?”
Someone: “Yes, I am. So, you’ve heard of me, Toa.”
Shanra: “Are all those rumors about you true?”
Him: “Well, I don’t know what strange things people have come up with since the last time someone dared to enter my realm. But I guess some of them are true, yes.”
Shanra: “Well, I guess you’re going to finish me now, huh? And all I needed was a Shadow Serpent.”
A large being appears from the shadows. All Shanra can see is a large silhouette, and a glowing eye high above her.
Him: “Oh? And why do you want one of my Shadow Serpents?”
Shanra: “...A f-friend of mine needs it to create a chemical that d-dissolves Makuta a-armor...”
Him: “Scared, eh? I thought so... Listen, Toa. I just want to be left alone...”
The being reaches into the shadows, and grabs a Shadow Serpent.
Him: “...So take this Shadow Serpent and get out of here. And just tell everyone I nearly killed you, allright? I don’t want more people to come here.”
Shanra: “So... You’re not evil at all?”
Him: “If you don’t get out of here now, I’ll show you how evil I can be.”
Shanra: “O.k., but... How do I get out of here?
Him: “Just turn around and take one step.”
The being slowly disappears into the darkness.
Shanra: “Oh, wait! Please tell me your name!”
Him: “My name... is...”
Disappointed, Shanra turns around. As she takes a step, she manages to hear:
Togataka: “Shanra! You made it back! Tell me, how was it in there?”
Shanra: “It was dark, and very dangerous. I barely managed to escape...”
