THE GUARDIAN OF ELYSIUM'S GARDEN DEMANDS THAT YOU RETURN THAT WHICH WAS STOLEN. The dragon did not speak, yet its words were heard by all.
Mr. Winter responded by standing up, triumphant. In his palms he held a glittering green gem not unlike the ruby that had escaped Dazzle's bag during the explosion. The physics teacher turned towards the dragon with an accusing finger. You are the one who has stolen the Fruits of Ecstasy from the Kingdom of Kruenth! And by calling upon its awesome power, I shall defeat you in battle! With that, Mr. Winter took a huge bite from the gem, and a brilliant flash of green light filled the room.
When the students regained their vision, their teacher had been replaced by a mighty warrior, clad in shining armour composed of interlaced green gems. Holding an enormous warhammer in both hands high above her head, the warrior roared, then charged.
Jody, from where he lay on his side, let his gaze fall on the red gem in Iliana's hands. He licked his lips.
