Chapters 5 and 6 of Gonsalves’ Legacy. Unlike parts 1 and 2, fans can be invited in here.
We began our long, vigorous training. I learned how to keep control of myself and to revert any damage I made. I learned more ways to bend the illusions as well. And all throughout the training, she would keep telling me... “There is no true way to stop your powers from going out of control. The best thing we can do is to just take a deep, deep breath and let your emotions settle down, which will let your powers settle down as well, since you won’t be putting stress on them.” And she kept testing my nerves as well. She still had the spark of familiarity, although the thing was I did not know how (or when) to ask her about it. We trained for a month. Then, one day, when we were supposed to continue training, we almost fell into a gaping hole in the ground. Xermesate had found out about our training area, and he was back as a big threat. “Well,” she started, “young man, it looks like the time has come for you to face Xermesate. He is putting ALL of Gonsal City and it’s surrounding illusion-affected dwellings in danger. It took up to a century or two to make them, thousands of people live in them, and they are all supported by illusions.” “But wait!” I said. “I’m only nine! Why are you entrusting such a big task to me? Why are you putting the fate of thousands on my shoulders?” She looked at me and gave me a somewhat weak smile that could have said as much as a thousand original paintings by Gonsalves. “Because I know you can do this. I just do.” I took a deep, deep breath and looked at her. “Alright. I’ll do this. Time to stop that Xermesate!” I said. Then I took off.
I bended the illusions, which threw me straight towards my house. There, I saw my friends Thomas and Samantha. “Christopher! You’re back!” they said excitedly. As happy as I was to see them, I was also worried. For whatever reason it was, I could feel that Xermesate was coming for me, trying to do something really bad. Then I heard a big rumbling noise. “Uh-oh. Quick! Hide!” I told my friends. They hid away and I rumbled across the ground to Thomas’ swing. I quickly clambered onto it and swung myself across the sky. It kind of reminded me of back then, when I first went flying across the sky, except this time I wasn’t afraid, not at all. I had a job to do, and that was protecting Gonsal City. I landed right down behind Xermesate in his towering, well, whatever it was. It looked like some sort of mech or something, although I couldn’t tell. He was busy spraying his illusion-disabling liquid all over the place like a maniac. I decided to sneak up to him before bending up the illusions, suddenly creating a big crater in the ground with the city looping around it. He went crashing down, landing smack in the middle of the hole. He screamed at me with a howl of fury. I rearranged the illusions so a piece of ground covered him. It wasn’t for long, though, and he burst out mad. Then he went on a rampage, causing collapses here and there and basically everywhere. I just knew I HAD to stop him! But how? Then I knew it. There just had to be a way to cut of his fluid supply and reverse its effects to do the opposite. I spotted a big transparent tank and leaped toward it. Then, I saw Xermesate’s mech’s arm looming towards me. He snarled.
Then everything went dark.
