Warnings in Prologue for Meeting A Child
"So Caesar, what brings you out at this time of night?" she asked. "You seem like the type who should be getting some sleep.. mostly 'cause you're a kid..."
"I've been travelin' around, lookin' for a friend of mine," I smiled, then chuckled. "I get that often.. I'm about 14 in all honesty, my 15th birthday is comin' up soon."
"Really now," she said, then went to grab a cup, glancing at Shade. "Shade, you wanted to drink a Zombie, right?"'WAIT. WHAT?! D-drinking Z-zombies? How could these humans drink zombies of all things?!'
I mentally panicked, my eyes wide and I can tell that these two noticed that I was panicking in horror.
"No no, a Zombie is a cocktail made from 1 part white rum, 1 part golden rum, 1 part dark rum, 1 part apricot brandy, 1 part pineapple juice, 1 part lime juice, and 1/2 part 151-proof rum," Shade explained.'..Humans sure are weird.. naming specific nutrients after Zombies....'
I pondered. 'Since I'm here, I minus well pick up a few information about the humans.. but I see no point though...'
"So, Caesar is your name, am I correct?" Shade raised an eyebrow, taking a notepad and pencil out as he wrote something down. "Where have you come from?"
"I guess you can say that I came from a fallen kingdom," I said with a thin smile.
I didn't lie, and I didn't exactly tell him everything.. they had no need to get involved after all.
"I didn't know there were kingdoms still around in Minecraftia..." he said, somewhat deep in thought as he continued writing. "So tell me, why did you leave the kingdom?"
"Well I said it earlier, I left so I can find my friend," I said as he wrote a few things down once more, but regardless, I honestly can't read to begin with, the Kingdom of Withers only taught us many things yet writing wasn't important to us.. not that I would tell him such things. "Plus, there wasn't any point in stayin' with the princess missin'.. although we deduced that she was killed which was a tragic loss..." another lie.
"I see..." Shade said, then stared at me. "Is your friend two girls?" he asked.
"Well no, but she is a girl, 'bout my age," I said, a bit interested in the boring conversation.
"Red eyes and long dark brown hair?" he asked as I raised an eyebrow. He took a picture out and showed me a picture of two girls.
I shook my head, feeling disappointed. "No, they may look similar, but the two I'm lookin' fer are older.. one of them looks like she's more.. cold I guess.. and she doesn't particularly smile 'round my friend, my friend looks about 14, a year younger then me, but either way their looks are far from that," I said. "Although the red eyed girl does look similar to one person who I'm lookin' for, she can't possibly be that young."
"I see, well if you want I can help you look for them as long as you give me information about some things," he said.
"Sure, I don' see why not," I smiled.
"Then you got yourself a deal," Shade said, taking a drink of his Zombie Cocktail or whatever.
"So what do ya want to know?" I asked.
"The location of your fallen kingdom," he said as I frowned.
"Only some know it's location, and when I left I found myself in an unfamiliar area that even know I don't remember..." I said. "Meanin', I can't help you find it's location..." I knew it had something to do with the Ender-looking thing outside, but I can't simply bring a human to the Wither Kingdom! It's absurd and unheard of, plus they'd probably all attack him on the spot...
"I see..." Shade said, somewhat disappointed. "So you remember nothing at all about the location?"
"Nope, just that it was originally supposed to be away from the outside world, which it was until people destroyed our materials and allowed it to crumble in pieces.. there weren't no grass, no sun or moon, no ocean an' beaches, our kingdom was very much away from the world it is today.. though I am sad that such a thing happened, I am glad to be far away from that horrid place," I gave a chuckle.
"Was it horrible staying there...? Why?" he questioned.
"Everyone hates each other, they always got into fights and no one could stop us from fightin' each other, the only bein' that could stop us was the princess..." I said, my head going down memory lane...
"Your princess.. what's she like?"
"..Tell me Mr. Shade.. what do you think of the colors green and red?" I asked, not answering his question yet.
"What does that have to do with the conversation?" Shade narrowed his eyes as I stared outside, noticing a skeleton out there.'Run away my Wither Skeleton Prince....'
the skeleton seemed to say to me. 'You must stay away from the humans...'
I stared at it, then I smiled, somewhat humming. 'Don't you worry.. I'll be just fine my friend.. you have no need to worry.. now leave or else your life will be in danger instead...'
as I thought that, he quickly left before those humans could kill him.
"Just answer it Mr. Shade~" I hummed, glancing back at him as if I were a happy child.
"Fine, I like green, it's my favorite color.. but as for red I'm neutral to it I suppose," he sighed. "Now will you answer why it has something to do with your princess?" he asked, somewhat annoyed that I changed subjects.
"Because my own princess can't help but love red that's somewhat against her dreams I think.. although I wouldn't know, since she left before I could question her," I said, getting up from the stool. "Well Mr. Shade, Ms. Minty, I gotta go find a place to stay at."
"You can stay with me," Mr. Shade offered.
"Nah, I prefer the nature," I just shrugged, turning around and walked out.
I wasted too much time around you humans, I must find my comrades, not just any comrades of mine, the comrades I must seek out for the future war. No matter what, we have to win or else....
"..You never did answer me..." you said to me in a quiet voice, you're glare still firm. "What was that about red and green?" you spoke with venom in your voice as I merely laughed with amusement.
Red and green? Wasn't the answer simple my human acquaintance?
Green means to continue forward, the living natural nature of of your world that's full of life.. that you can still move forward.
Red means to stop, that it's just the end, you can't proceed because the danger creeps up to you.. remember my kingdom? What you called the Nether? It's dangerous for you humans.. and it can even stop you from moving along in your path for answers...
Did you know that red also cymbolizes a color of blood?
Now.. back to the story, will you be willing to listen?
To Be Continued...
Okay everyone who's following the story of Meetin' A Traveler~ I decided that in MAT's Prologue stated that Caesar was telling a story, I decided to make the parts close to the ending in the present time since basically you're just reading the past.
Oh, and Caesar is still talking to Shade if you actually read MAT's Prologue [MAC's Part 9]
