Valley of Peace #39
The battle in the Courtyard was over. The Furious Five had defeated the wolf pack. Tigress had defeated Boss Wolf. Akira had defeated Lord Shen. Though the former received some injuries, the statement of his victory gave strength to an army. The Rhino Army had arrived. They began to overtake Tai Lung’s army in the valley below. The tide of the battle was turning. Yet, reality had sunk in. Tai Lung had long since entered the palace. Lord Shen alleged the most dangerous criminal in the Valley of Peace had obtained the inevitable: the treasure of the Jade Palace. He who would be the Dragon Warrior.
Rushed to the palace, Akira made his way up the stairs and to the long stone door. With a hard push, the doors would creak open. The light from the outside would illuminate the poorly lit temple. A long but wide hallway went for dozens of meters, it’s walls high and astounding. A tranquil pool cut the halfway down the middle, stained with blood. Candled lit periodically as the walls went deeper showed the signs of a great struggle. If Akira ran inside and to the other end of the temple, he’d find the basin.
The pool ended in a Great Basin in front of two massive doors, each with a different symbol: one of Takeuchi and one of the other. Yet, before one would reach them, the sounds of a short whimper would echo. In front of the basic, handing to the edge, was a mangled body of a small animal. One whose spiritual pressure was immense, yet defeated. Hanging on to dear life, literally, was Master Oogway’s pupil.
Master Shifu gasped for air.
