As the legend says, “The time of evil spirits shall arrive, but as evil
approaches us a group of four young heroes shall be formed. They will
possess the four elements passed on from generation to generation. When
the time comes, they shall use their powers to defeat the evil spirits
and will vanquish them for the last time.”
I am TJ and this is my story. I am eighteen years old and have a wide
sided Mohawk, and I am quite tall. I am very likable and talk too much.
I am at the top of my class and the captain of the soccer team. Let me
start at the beginning of my extraordinary journey to greatness.
It starts in the parking lot where Jack my best friend and I were
waiting for our rides to go home. Jack is a tall muscular boy who is
really good natured and has a normal haircut.
I said to Jack, “Finally, we are out of out of school. And I have an
amazing holiday planned.”
”I know what you mean, but it’s not exactly summer holiday here,”
Jack replied with an upset look.
I gave him a smile and said to him, “I know, but I am going to Japan and
it’s summer there.”
“Great. So when are you leaving?” he asked me with a look of envy on his
“Tomorrow,” I said.
He looked at me with a shocked face and screamed, “Dude! You got to go
pack your bags.”
I replied “I already did, so do not stress over it.” His ride came and
he said goodbye to me. Then my dad came and immediately told me the new
summer holiday plan.
I was disappointed to hear from my father that I would no longer be
going to join the rest of the family at the five stars Lilly Pad Resort.
Instead, I was going to spend my summer with my grandfather at his
jungle shack on the outskirts of Kyoto, Japan. I was actually delighted
because my grandfather is great fun and shows me the good side of
things, even when they are bad.
I went to bed and thought about what I was getting into. When I woke up
the next morning, I decided to embrace the decision my dad had made. I
told him at breakfast that I was happy to visit my grandfather, and he
was filled with joy to hear my positive attitude.
We left for the airport at 7:00 am to catch our plane. On the way to the
airport, my dad kept on saying, “TJ, you are doing the right thing.”
When we got to the airport, my mom and dad rushed to the check-in desk
and checked our bags through to Kyoto, Japan. Once we were settled in
our seats and the plane took off, I fell asleep almost immediately and
had a frightening dream. I was in a hot and humid landscape, and all I
could see for a hundred miles was red hot fire. Before I could even turn
my body, I saw a ferocious red dragon appear out of thin air. It was the
size of the Empire State Building, and it resembled my grandfather. I
had just got into the dream when my dad woke me up to tell me that we
were landing very soon.
Once we got our bags, my dad hired a car and we headed off to my
grandfather’s shack. When we were about to turn off onto the road to my
grandfather’s shack, my dad turned to the other side of the road.
I asked him why. But he said, “ Be quiet, I know what I am doing.”
So I just kept quiet.
He stopped the car and told me to get out the car and start walking with
him. When we got to a dead end that was unfamiliar to me, my dad told me
to stop. He got into a fighting position and thrust his right arm and a
flash of fire came out, and he did the same with his left hand. He then
took a deep breath and when he let the air out a blast of blazing red
fire came out.
As I stood there in shock, I screamed, “What are you?”
He replied with a serious look: “I am the current master of the dragon
flame.” I then knew I was getting into something serious.
After that, a door and a symbol appeared from the earth beneath us. The
symbol was made up of two dragons facing each other. He then told me I
was going to be the next generation leader of the four heroes. I asked
myself if I should accept the responsibility of such a group, as this
was no ordinary group but a special one and I would be the one
responsible for their lives. I was entering a new chapter of my life.
