- 12th May 2011 What if Alfonso never found the sphere??
One of our exceptional Dormia fans - Amelia Rozear - answered the question of how the original Dormia might have been different if Alfonso never found the sphere in the dark woods of Straszydlo Forest. Read on - you'll love it!!
'Twang!' Alfonso let go of the wooden arrow and watched it soar through the air. It seemed as if it was in slow motion, flying the fifty feet to the cyclops statues' ear. Then, as if someone or something had planned it to happen, he heard rustling behind him and then heard a loud,
“Daaad, daaad...” before the monster could finish, he felt something hit his head and then fell unconscious. A split second before he was knocked out, he saw a black, shadowy hand knock the arrow off course. A few minutes later, Alfonso came to. He had spent about a half hour at the cyclops statue and had to get going if he wanted to-
Wait a minute. Alfonso looked around. This place didn't look familiar at all. His sleeping self must have gotten himself out of the forest in time, because it was, by the looks of it, twilight. But there was one thing that surprised Alfonso. He saw a sobbing Bilblox, kneeling next to the Dormian Bloom. Bilblox looked up and noticed Alfonso standing next to him. He quickly stood up and said in a shaky voice, “Resuza, s-she's gone.”
Bilblox looked as guilty as ever when the Dormian knights cuffed his hands behind his back. “NO!” Alfonso cried. “NO! You can't take Bilblox!” he reached into his pocket and felt around for something to persuade the knights to let Bilblox go. But he was hopeless. He didn't have anything.
Alfonso looked around in the tree and saw a giant Dragoonya soldier lunging towards him with a huge knife, ready to cut him in two. Without a weapon he was defenseless. So the only choice he actually had was to run. He ran like there was no tomorrow. The soldier ran after him. They were both running and chasing each other so much, Alfonso grew tired. Then the strangest thing happened. He fell asleep while running for his life. For a second his shoulders slouched and he slowed down. And just when the Dragoonya soldier was about to chop him in half, Alfonso's sleeping self took over and with a burst of energy, he was running so fast, he couldn't see him anymore. Then he screeched to a stop when he saw Nartam right in front of him. He sneered and struck a match. “NO!” Alfonso cried. “NO!”
The tree was burning quickly and Nartam was drenched from head to toe with sweat and purple ash.
Alfonso knew it was impossible to beat him.
But it was nobody but Nartam and Alfonso. Head to head. Face to face. Life to life.
