Working Title:

The Forgotten Island and Time

Part 1 by Travis Grant

------------------------------------------

Archeological Dig in South Central Australia

------------------------------------------

Pan around a huge pit dug into the ground you see what seem to be a building at the center of the pit Dozens of people are scurrying around hauling dirt and debris away from the building. The building has pieces missing and holes all over it. In places you see white and little gold showing in the ruins. You zoom in on a pair of men standing in front of two huge ornate doors.

"Dr. Malthus are you sure this is the way in? There are three more on each side of the building. With the dome on top the entrance could be any where."

"Look here in their ancient language this left door indicates the beginning of I believe it is called Lodoss. This right door talks about the destruction of this city. Right here it talks about the belief in gods and goddesses. Like gods and goddesses are real and living."

---------------------------------------

A certain temple in Nekomi

--------------------------------------

AHHCHHOO!!! Three certain goddesses sneeze.

-------------------------------------

"Look here on this line and pictures, here is how Lodoss was created. It says 'The Age of the Gods was at a close the armies of light led by Falaris leading a hundred dragons did battle with Falis's armies of darkness after the fighting ended only'… hmm I don't recognize these symbols. Ahhha it says 'only Marfa destroyer of earth and Kardis stopper of madness and destruction lived and each fought….' Baaa this story is nice, but it is just a story. Bring up the equipment we'll pry these open and see the wonders of ancient Valis."

"Doctor are you sure you read this as Falaris not Falis, the character for each is reverse of the other?"

"Yes I'm sure, I taught you to read the language. Call Dr. Pryde of the Tasmanian University and find out how the excavation of the Temple of Falis is going and whom is that person standing on the rim? Hey you girl get away from the edge." The woman just stands there and looks around the area. "Davis run up there and find out why she is there!" Malthus's companion runs up one of the roads to the woman still standing there in a dark blue cloak.

"Hey you this is a closed site. No one, but authorized personnel are allowed this close." As Davis gets closer the woman looks at him like he is a petty annoyance. He sees a strange metal band that covers her forehead.

"This place was hidden ages ago to stop a disaster. Now fools seek it out. The balance now begins to shift again." The man standing there has a perplexed look on his face.

"Excuse me miss what are you talking about and who are you?"

She turns her head and says, "My name is Karla the Grey Witch and now I will stop Lodoss from being destroyed as I always have always done for so many millennia." Karla turns away again to stare down on all the workers down below and starts to chant in a chilling monotone voice. "Ancient power in all things sunder the earth and shatter the bonds of this land. Hide what was hidden and cover what was ripped from you."

The people at the bottom of the pit look on in dread as the woman glows purple and the words spoken at a whisper are heard by all. The ground around them responds to her calls cracking and blowing upwards. The sides flow inward like a wall of water completely burying everything and everyone. No trace of the excavation is left except the hysterical young man on his knees sobbing and holding himself.

Karla stares down with no remorse. "Learn this lesson well child. He who looks for what they are not meant to find will be consumed by it and destroyed." With that Karla fades away leaving the broken man behind to the mercy of the desert.

Tasmania

-------------------------------

In a dark, damp and musty cave stand a group of three men and two women. At the head of this group is a sixty some old man with wire rim glasses. They stand before two stone doors.

"Are we ready to proceed into the final chamber?"

"Yes sir, we are all ready. I know we want a low profile to keep relic hunters from finding this place. Can we at least have told some people know we are here and where is here?"

"Ya I like the idea of finding a lost people, but here in the middle of Tasmania."

"I am work with Dr. Malthus out of Brisbane University. We located some small ruins shunned by the Aborigines; there we found the keys to this place and some ancient books made out of metal. The most important was a map calling this Marmo. This chamber we are about to enter was a religious shrine to a goddess named Kardis the rest of this temple was above ground and dedicated to a god named Falaris. The above ground part was demolished for some reason. Maybe the population was in rebellion or some disaster. These scratch marks along the walls and on the doors in front of us may point to a rebellion, enough. Mark Brett both of you take a side of the doors and open them. Jennie focus the light on the doors. Bridget start filming, with this we step into history."

The two men shove against the huge stone doors slowly moving the ponderous doors inward. The smell of decay and death flow out of the dark interior. Jennie focuses the light into the interior, but the light goes no more than a few feet in. With the final thud the doors stop pushing inward.

"Doc what is that horrendous smell? I'm gonna puke!"

"What is it?"

"How can anything smell so bad!"

"Who ripped in there!"

"QUIET!! Good, now when I was in Egypt a sacrificial altar that was sealed up smelled like this. Now we move forward." The group starts moving forward in to the dark chamber.

"Look over there at all the skeletons Bridget."

"Jennie there are more over there and there and there. They are everywhere."

"Dr. Pryde; every one look here. These ones were burnt to a chrisp."

Dr. Pryde kneels down and examines the charred bones in front of him. "I would say that they died in some sort of explosion. See how the skeletons are not complete here while everywhere else we have seen they are." All over the chamber the stone torches come to life emitting a green-blue flame.

"Doctor what is happening!?"

"I did not sign on to be in some creepy crypt."

"How did those torches come alive?"

"I don't know. Some time delayed mechanism. Fresh air set them off. I DON"T KNOW!!"

"But I do, old man. Because I lit them." The group looks around trying to find the voice. "If you wish to find me I am at the end of the temple." The group gets up and starts inching forward cautiously. Working to the end of a long row of pillars stands a raised dais with a throne sitting on top. Sitting on the throne is a man in blood red robes with a golden dragon headed staff that contains a circular red ruby. The man stands up and run a bony hand threw his slicked-backed black hair. "I must thank you for freeing me, being trapped for so many eons wears on me. Now I must consider a gift to equal what you have done for me."

Mark and Brett step forward with greed shining in their eyes. "You here that we are going to get paid for freeing this poor man from being trapped here."

"Yes a reward to match your greed. I Wvagnard will make sure is appropriate." The red robed man starts to chuckle. The girls start to step back away from him and Jennie focuses on the face of the man. Glowing faintly are two red eyes.

"Bridg get ready to run this guys eyes are glowing red. In every horror movie I've seen the bad guy kill everyone about now."

"The thanks for freeing me is a quick and not so painless death." Mark and Brett just gape and Dr. Pryde stands stock still. While the two girls follow the little known part of animal instinct called self-preservation. "Valous mighty god of fiery destruction become a storm to incinerate my foes! Valous mighty god of fiery destruction become a storm to incinerate my foes!" A surge of white-hot plasma blows from the staff consuming the men in hellish screams. The two girls duck and roll to the sides of the doors catching them and giving them burns from the heat.

"Jen lets run and get help." The blond girl nods in agreement. Both run like the gates of hell had opened for they had.

Nekomi

Belldandy is in the kitchen is in the kitchen cooking dinner. Keiichi walks in to the room.

"Belldandy what are we having dinner?"

"Oh Keiichi-san will be having your favorite, suk…AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"

Bell screams and falls over in a faint to the floor. In runs Urd and Skuld.

"I knew you had it in you Morisato, go for it. The tyke and I will be gone for the night so you love birds have your fun. Oh and Keiichi wear protection." Keiichi's blush is so bad he looks ready to about burst a blood vessel.

"URD and you…you pervert how dare you attack my sister!" Mallet comes out. "KEIICHI" Here's the windup. "NO" and the pitch. "BAKA" We have a home run in to the courtyard of the temple.

"You know Skuld your distance and air time is getting better."

"Thanks Urd all the bug smashing comes in handy some time."

"Let's help Bell on to the couch."

Nerima, Tendo Dojo

---------------------------

"Baka you will eat my cooking and like it. After I spent all afternoon cooking and you complain just because it's glowing and moved once. No one else is complaining about it." Akane is standing over Ranma glowing blue and holding some unknown substance on a steel plate.

"That’s cause every one decided to leave since your cooking. Pops and Mr. Tendo deciding to stop the old perve from his panty run. Kasumi leaving to go see a KISS concert and Nabikis going to a charity ball for orphans." Akane throws the plate on the table and rips out mallet #42 (mallet for insulting your cooking and knowing it is true, but too dense to admit it.)

"RANMA FOR INSULTING AKANE"S COOKING PREPARE TO DIE." Ryouga charges through a wall straight at Ranma and Ranma jumps out of the way and Ryouga gets the mallet to the face with a "RANMA NO BAKA!!!" and flies into the Koi pond. Akane does a back swing and still hits Ranma into the floor.

"HUMP serves you right for insulting me Ranma. Maybe next time you will eat my cooking, perverted freak." SPLASH (water on the table courtesy of Akane) "As for that first comment the first night I'm better built, Ranma." Akane turns to walk out.

"Excuse me B#$*%. The name is Leaf and Ranma is out of it and we need to discuss your miss self centered princess act." Akane turns around with the mallet at ready and swings over head. "Suth sprit of the wind become a barrier to protect me." Little air elementals form a translucent shield around Leaf. The Laws of Physics with have been neglected since Ranma's arrivals returns for revenge enforcing 'Equal and Opposite Reaction Law.' The shield catches the mallet and throws it back into Akane's face. As Akane goes off to the LaLa land she notices that Ranma has two slender ears now.
