This will be my first independent, ongoing story. This is based off of NinjaGo and set in Feudal Japan.
Sensei Wu nervously paced the hallways of the Imperial Palace, waiting for the arrival of the Emperor, which was also the Sensei's cousin. He knew for a fact his cousin was very prone to anger, so he pondered the ways to deliver the news in a satisfying way.
“Sir!” the palace guard interrupted him. “His highness is awaiting your report.”
“Very well then,” Sensei Wu replied as he strolled into the grand double doors of the throne room.
“Ah, my courageous cousin, how nice it is too see you!” the Emperor exclaimed with open arms.
“It is a pleasure seeing you, your Highness” Sensei Wu stated. “But not as much in these grim circumstances. “
“So is the news true, then? Is the rickety old shogun going at it again?” The Emperor asked impatiently.
“We think so. My scouts have-”. Sensei Wu was cut off mid-sentence by the Emperor.
“ You think so? I want conformation, not just heresy! I am sick of not getting a straight answer! My empire depends on the truthfulness of this situation!” the Emperor ranted.
“ I am sorry your Highness, I just have to make sure-”
The emperor interrupts again. “Sorry does not help. If you are too old and tired to do it yourself so you can get the truth, then why are you still Sensei? As of now, I command you to start searching for apprentices. You will need at least four, and all in a half-moon's time. Leave now, I have some thinking to do.”
“Yes, your Highness” Sensei Wu replied as he left the throne room.
Shogun Garmadon sat in his throne, watching as his army and people worked. He was startled by the sound of a dragon landing on the pad outside of his fortress. The dragon sounded out of breath, which meant important news was arriving.
“My lord!” Krazi exclaimed. “You will be pleased to know that the Emperor still has no conformation of our threat to him. The Sensei said that he couldn't be certain about anything”
“Has the Emperor no army?” the shogun asked.
“No, my lord. He commanded that the Sensei train four new ninjas within a half-moon's time.”
“That means we have to strike soon. Go to the barracks and rally the troops Krazi. We will reclaim what is ours!” the shogun exclaimed. Krazi then left the room to complete his command. “My brother, you will soon be free, I promise” Garmadon whispered. He cackled as he looked across the ocean, thinking about what is to come.
