-Eclipse Strikes! Final Round!-

The little witch was leaving school, desperate; she was alone and could not find any of the boys. The girl could not go beyond the halls of the school children, since the earthquake seemed to get worse every moment.

"I'm alone." She thought, crying. "They left me here ...
A mi me gustaria tener mi hermano mayor junto a mi." This last thought made the girl burst into tears, crying out loud. Their cries reached the ears supersensitive Kimi, who, without hesitation, followed the sound.

“Kimi, where you going?!” Inquired Melchior, following him.

“Altagracia!” Kimi said, quickening their pace to find the girl quickly “She is here!”

The pair managed to climb the stairs, despite the tremors do not facilitate the service, the girl ran to the boys, throwing himself into the arms of Finland's Kimi. The trio immediately left the building that collapsed, rushing to save themselves and the people of Central America.

Hurricanes and typhoons have half the city go through the air, destroying what was left of a fragile country. Many people died in the catastrophe. The few who survived were escorted by Maya Altahuela, who had struggled to not give in to their natural fear of hurricanes.

She felt her legs wobble with each powerful blast of air. The Honduran hid in basements several groups whose structures were greatly strengthened. Then the girl went to the top of a building waiting for a sign ... Waiting for a ray of hope.

Once Maya reached the roof of the tallest building in the city, Melchior and Kimi with Altagracia, came to the rendezvous point marked by Kaiser and Thalas. The quintet was quite apprehensive; there was no sign of Anael anywhere.

“So?” Kim asked, staring at his twin “What's the plan?”

“Basically” Kaiser began, reflective “the idea was to use a weapon that Eclipse eliminated altogether.” Thalas asked Kimi to hand over the Book of Heroes “Well, Thalas and I found that Eclipse has two weaknesses: Anael’s Sapphire Sword, and a lance of silver ... similar to mine and Kimi.”

“And” Melchior continued, following the line of reasoning “if Eclipse is there among the tornadoes, so we'll have to throw these spears like harpoons! Right?”

“Exactly!” Confirmed Kaiser, with an evil smile “Glad you got it in time, Melchior! We'll need his magic to increase the range of our gun toxic Thalas help us build the arbalest, we will use for the ‘target’.”

Suddenly, a blue lightning cut the black sky, and then red and blue sparks fought fiercely. For boys, there was no reasonable doubt for that phenomenon.

“Anael ...”

***

The Elite Dragon had minor injuries and some cracks in his armor; Eclipse seemed even more insane than usual, his eyes were white like the moon, his skin pale as a zombie, her hair was disheveled and her clothes , ragged. Although badly wounded, she was still very powerful, which gave Anael a slight drawback.

She did not cease her attack; she started throwing even more energy strikes against Anael, who evaded some of them, but was seriously hit by five in a row. He started to lose height, and Eclipse started to gain more strength. The flashes on the black stormy sky made the sorceress look even scarier. Her skin was melting, proving that she didn’t have much time of life: she was turning into a zombie, and a quite powerful one. If Anael did not think fast enough, he could lose the war right there.

Then, he decided to call his Sword to battle: the weapon had shrunken in order to fit in the Elite Dragon’s necklace. The boy took the object in his hands and, using the powers of his shaman-stone; he made the sword return to its original size and prepared himself for the final round of that endless fight.

He started soaring at Eclipse, trying to strike her with his sword. Most of his attempts were in vain, for Eclipse had enough dexterity to evade his attacks. Now was her turn and she hit him hard using all the spells she knew.

“I cannot surrender” Anael thought, ignoring the all the pain that he was feeling in that moment “Guatemala needs me. Everybody is counting on me, and I’m not this kind of person who lets other people down!”

Moments before falling on a rooftop, Anael’s wings responded to his will, and he had flown over the buildings, ready to fight Eclipse once more.

Downstairs, Thalas, Kimi and Kaiser had finished building the arbalest. Now, they were focused on the Magic Harpoons, which were Melchior’s responsibility to make. They had to run against time, for Anael’s fight was taking too long, and it could be a bad sign for everyone.

In the south entrance of the city, Altagracia and Maya were working on their plan: Maya knew that Eclipse would start rotting at any time, like it was happening at the moment, and she wanted to use that in their behalf. She called Altagracia and proposed a new spell. A very hardcore one.

“You want to do what?!” Altagracia shouted, surprised “I don’t think that I have such power to do it!”

“Come on, Lothus” Maya said, serious “You have that strength! And so do I: I won’t leave you behind, I’ll be at your side all the times. If we combine our powers, we may be able to stop those hurricanes, just like I said, and then your brother will have more air space. Got it?”

“I think so…” Altagracia sighed, worried “Let’s do it!”

The girls started the ritual that would be their salvation. Maya drew some symbols with her Honduran staff. This was a process that took more time, and they hoped that the boys would buy them more time. The spells was going to worth all the time spent to conjure it.

Above the shattered buildings of Guatemala City, Anael was still fighting, and Eclipse was showing some signs of weakness. Her skin was gray, and missing at most of her body. Now she was truly looking like a zombie, and that was the opportunity they were waiting for.

“I hate you!” Eclipse shouted, throwing power blast on Anael “I hate you since our paths were crossed! You should have all died in the first day you stole me my power sources! I hope that those hurricanes destroy every single thing you love, and I also hope that the fires I had conjured burn you up, Anael Moon’Seeker! Mark my words!”

Even though Anael had more advantage that time, he was also weak because of the injuries he had suffered until them. He used the Sapphire Sword to cast lightning bolts on Eclipse, who was hit by them, but did not die.

Eclipse used her powers to unite the two hurricanes she had conjured before. She was planning to use the wind against the Guatemalan. Anael started to feel his heart failing. His sight was becoming blurred, and he felt breathless.

“Not now, please” He begged to himself, trying to stay awake. “Please, Shaman-stone of mine, give me some time. At least, some more minutes.”

“The harpoons are done!” Melchior shouted, giving the objects to the twins “Now, which one of you has the best aiming skills? We need a shooter quickly! I think that Anael is yielding to his shaman-stone’s life drain…”

“I do” Kaiser answered, taking his position on the arbalest “I only need one harpoon. And I bet my darkened soul that I’ll give you guys a clear shot from here. Sit and watch.”

“Confident enough” Melchior complimented, with a soft smile “Well them give to us your best shot, Kaiser. And do not hit Anael, please.”

Kaiser put the harpoon onto the Arbalest and aimed. Eclipse was almost on the place that Kaiser wanted, but she could not take too long to be there, otherwise Anael would be dead.

“Come on, I need a clear shot!” Muttered Kaiser focused on his target.” Pretty please? Just one...Now!”

The harpoon soared on the skies rapidly, making a rough sound until it had stricken down its target. At the same time, Altagracia and Maya’s spell made the hurricanes vanish away, and cleansed the burning ground. Melchior had used some of their power to rebuild the city. Thalas congratulate the rookie Kaiser for his miracle shot. But what about Anael?

He was not dead, but was not quite alive. He had fallen down due to Eclipse’s final energy beam. Luckily, his armor had absorbed most of the impact, but it had lots of cracks as a result of that deadly battle. His Shaman-stone’s glow was diminishing. He was dying, and his friends didn’t have a clue on where he was lying.

He closed his eyes for a while, and started to feel lighter; he thought he was floating somewhere, because he could not see anything. Was this some kind of a purgatory? Was he already dead?

Suddenly, the black background turned itself into a beautiful rainforest. Enormous varieties of birds were flying, and he could see some animals behind the bushes. His armor disappeared from his body, and he returned to his civilian outfit. At the same time, he stopped floating and his feet touched the ground. It felt so real for him. He was in Paradise, for sure, considering the majesty of the place which surrounded him.

Anael started smiling at the birds that landed near him. They were two big macaws: one was blue, and the other was red. Their eye gaze was very familiar to him, even though that kind of bird was not Guatemalan: they were Brazilians, just like Iracema was…

“It’s time for you to come back to the living, Anael”

The voice came from a very bright spot, which Anael was struggling to see through the white light. His eyes were half closed, and some human shade started to appear in front of his eyes. That voice was extremely familiar to him: there was no doubt in his mind that Iracema was there.

“Iracema!” Anael called, trying avoiding the light to hurt his eyes “Where are we? Am I dead?”

“You are not dead, Anael” Answered Iracema, with a serious face “Not yet, but you are close of dying. This is your own Death Realm. Basically, all the things that you value most are being brought here by your mind; it is a more beautiful way to die. I’m here to prevent it.”

“Why?” Anael asked, confused “Why are you trying to save me? I am the one who was responsible for you death! I… I deserve to die. I really do; I…”

“No!” Iracema replied, with anger in her eyes “You are not responsible for what happened to me! ‘To beat the best’, remember? Handsome, I said it because I knew that death would be unavoidable for the weakest of us. You proved to be stronger than I would ever be, and I am glad that I could meet you. You were always sincere in the battlefield, never hid your true personality: you have a golden heart, and you truly deserve to live! The Blue Moon Knights need you, and it is more than time for you to come right back to them.”

“I am sorry, Iracema, for killing you” Anael replied, sad “There has never been a single day that I have not thought about that day; I wish I could do everything different…” Then, his wet eyes of sorrow turned into hopeful emeralds. “But you are right; I have to come back to them, but how?”

“Since I died” Iracema started, with a smile “I had been watching you, Anael. Instead of being your enemy, I want to be your ally from the other side. I have one artifact that will bring your agonizing body back to life: The Sanctified Knight Necklace, which I used to carry with me. It will be more powerful along with your half-moon necklace.” She approached Anael and put the necklace around his neck “When the necklace starts to shimmer in various tones of red, your soul will be heading home. I was not able to use its full powers, but maybe you can. I want to get it right, for once in my entire life. Now, go back to our planet and kick some evil asses down there, understood?”

Before Anael could give an affirmative answer, Iracema gave him a kiss, which was his first: the one that he would never forget. His brand-new necklace started to glow the way Iracema told it would do. Everything started to disappear in front of his eyes, Iracema included. He closed his eyes once more, feeling heavier than before. Life was calling him back.

“Anael, wake up!”

Hermano mayor, no me dejes sola!”

“Elite Dragon, please come back! They are safe now! All the Guatemalans are safe!”

Altagracia was weeping on her brother’s chest. Anael’s eyes started to show some spark of life again.

“He is waking up!” Kaiser shouted happily “He is back! Back from the underworld!”

Anael tried to sit, feeling some pain on his body. Altagracia started crying of happiness, and hugged her older brother with all the strength she had in her tiny arms. Thalas and Melchior helped him to stand up, and Kimi used some magic to heal him.

That day, the capital city of Guatemala was introduced to their heroes, the Blue Moon Knights, the saviors of Guatemala and Central America. From now on, the descendants on the legendary Mayans and Aztec had revamped their hopes and beliefs. Wherever there was pain and sorrow among the Central Americans, the Blue Moon Knights would vanquish once for all.

End of Season One.
