Theron had followed the rest of the group with steady footsteps. He was well aware that he had lead the group into a somewhat "foolish" rush into the castle, but if they had tried to search for other entrances it would have taken even longer and the chance of them being caught would have grown bigger with each minute. Jack lead them by a safe passage through the castle until they reached the throne room itself, but instead of going straight into the room they moved up a level and positioned themselves above it. It didn't take long until Evin and Crystal jumped down along with Jake who was invisible. Gloria, Allison and Theron stayed behind, for now.

"Something is definitely off here." Allison whispered, probably to herself. Theron kept his mouth shut but he agreed with her. The king seemed different than the last time he had meet the man. The conversation that followed proved Theron to be right when the "king" began to talk about his goal of gaining true power. Theron decided that this had gone on for far too long. This was not the king, but someone else and he had to make his friends realize this as well. And with that, he slipped down from the ceiling, straight into the shadows of the room. No one noticed him, well except Crystal who had been trained to "see" everything around here.
The conversation led to a end and Theron could already feel a massive source of power close to the man who claimed to be the king of Newhaven. Let this charade begin.


"It's been far too long hasn't it, my lord?" Theron said as he stepped out of the shadows. He was walking towards the man at the throne with slow footsteps. He wasn't going to make any sudden movements in a tense situation like this. "How long has it been? Three, four years?" Theron continued as he kept on walking forward, past Crystal and Evin. He wanted to see the "kings" reaction to his approach and it was a success. The man showed signs of doubt in the way his body moved. His face was shrouded by darkness but these signs was enough to show the rest of the people in this room that he was not familiar with Theron.

"But what now? You don't remember me, my lord?" Theron said, teasing the man. "Maybe because you're not actually the king? Yes, think that's it. I think--" He continued but was interrupted by the girl he had seen earlier scream from the stairs below.

"Watch out!" She cried out and at that very moment the man launched himself at Theron. However, the instructor threw himself backwards, down the stairs just in time to avoid the attack. He pulled the unknown and fragile girl with him. The man had made a Hugh mistake. Not only did he attacked Theron but he also revealed his face and identity to both Evin and Allison. Evin would look at him as his old child friend Perry while Allison would see him as the Shadow, their target.

"Told you I was good." Theron whispered to Crystal with a smile as he turned his back to Perry and lead the girl towards the corner of the room. While doing so he motioned for Jack, wherever he might be to keep her safe. He had no idea what went on behind him, but he would soon see it for himself.
