The Shadow, Chapter 8: Saving Ethan
Lately, on The Shadow Ryan and Herman had to save Ethan from the shadow king. While, in the process, they realize that Ethan had somehow gotten brainwashed or possibly had his memory erased. They knew they had to save him before the brainwash effects were permanent!
Ryan, Herman, and Ethan reached Ryan’s house. Ethan was starting to wake up, but they had to come up with something before he woke up. They put him in a closet with food and water and started to plan how to save him. Then Ryan and Herman decided to show him some old pictures to jog his memory, but that idea didn’t work, it just made him madder. After a while of thinking, Ryan said “ Open the closet.” “ What why!?” Herman replied. “Are you insane!” “Who knows, but I have to save my friend, so open the closet door.” He said firmly. “ Ok, I trust you,” Herman said softly.
Herman opened the door for Ryan, and Ethan came out of the closet. He jumped at Ryan, but before he laid a finger on him, he stopped, he couldn’t bare to hurt his best friend. “Wait, what?” Ethan said. “Ethan you’re back!” Ryan said excitedly. “ What are you talking about, I was here the whole time, wasn’t I?” Ethan said confused. “ I’ve got a lot of explaining to do,” Ryan said thankfully.
After all of them regained all of their brain power they practiced all of their powers. “Ryan and Ethan I need to tell you something, you know how all of this time I’ve told you that I haven’t had any more powers, well I have two extra powers, sorry I didn’t tell you, I do feel bad” Herman said, “ The powers are freeze blast and lightning bolt.”
In unison, both Ryan and Ethan screamed “WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL US THIS” “ Seriously!” Ryan said angrily “ I thought we could trust you!” “ You can, I just didn’t want to overwhelm you with a bunch of powers.” Herman said sadly “ Well you could’ve at least told us about these powers, you didn’t have to give them to us!” Ryan said roughly “ Now that that’s all over with,” “ I CALL LIGHTNING!” Ethan said before anybody else could say anything.
“Thank you for forgiving me,” Herman said happily “ I never said I forgive you, I just want lightning.” Ethan said harshly. “ Ok, fine, But I hope one day you can forgive me.” Herman said sadly, “ I’ll give you lightning,” Smoke started to swirl around Ethan, andhe started to levitate in the air.Lightning was forming around him, like usual, he got a little burning sensation is his chest, but it wasn’t as bad as it was when he got his first power.
Before he knew it, the sensation was gone, he was on the ground, and there was no smoke surrounding him. He shot his hand up in the air, and a little spark came out of it. “ This was much cooler in my head,” Ethan said, “ Well you need training,” Herman said “ Oh yeah, I forgot” he remembered. “ Now it’s my turn,” Ryan said “ I want snow” “ Ok then” Herman replied. A blizzard of snow was swarming Ryan, he started to float off the ground.Once again, he felt burning in his chest.
When it all was over he did the same as Ethan and lifted his hand in the air, but when Ryan did it he blasted a full out snowball that was huge. “How did you do that?” Ethan said. “No clue” Ryan replied, “ Well it’s not fair, I should be super good at it too,” Ethan said very distraught. “ If you want to get better, Ethan you have to train.” Herman told him, “ Uh… not training” Ethan said grumpily, “ Yes training!” Herman said fiercely. “ Don’t you forget, you’re the one who kept this huge secret from us!” Ethan also said fiercely. Herman did not reply.
After all of them stopped arguing they started training. Herman pulled up the training course out of nowhere again. “Also, how do you do that?” Ethan asked. “A lot of practice” Herman replied “Like, a long time of practice”. The training course that he pulled up was of flour bag dummies, he made enemies out of flour bags, that was for Ryan because he has the snow power. But, for Ethan he had steak, he would zap the meat until it was perfectly cooked, it took lots of precision.
“Did you know that you can shoot balls of lightning?” Herman said, “If you get a lot of practice then you can shoot a ball of lightning, you will have to make sure you aim before the enemy is because it is a projectile.” “What does that even mean?” Ethan asked. “It means that when you get very skilled with shooting lightning you can shoot a ball of lightning that does way more damage than your normal lightning zap.” Herman replied,
“Ryan you have a special ability to make an ice block around you for forty-five seconds,” Why do I not have anything cool!” Ryan asked. “Maybe if you let me finish, you have a special ability to make an ice block around you for forty five seconds, but the catch is that it will heal all of your hurt spots on your body while your in the ice block within the forty five seconds” Herman replied. Also, you can throw snowballs that will freeze enemies.
“Ethan!” Ryan said “ Zap me” “Wait, what!, no way!” Ethan said very confused “ Do it!” Ryan said demandily “ Fine, but this is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you” Ethan replied “ Probably not” Ryan said. Ethan zapped Ryan, “ Ahh!” Ryan said in pain. Ryan put up the ice block around him, after, he felt no pain at all. “ Wow, That really does work” Ryan said positively.
Ethan shot a lightning bolt at one of the pieces of meat, it was too raw. He shot a lightning at the next piece of meat, yet it was burnt now. “ This is never going to work!” Ethan said while being very frustrated. “ Try one more time, I believe in you” Herman said, “Fine” Ethan replied. He shot at the last piece of steak, he hit it so perfectly it looked delicious. “ Yum, let’s dig in!” Ethan said. Just as Ethan was going to cut a piece off, the shadow king jumped out from behind a bush and then Ethan started zapping the shadow king, Ryan started throwing snowballs at him to freeze him and Herman started zapping him as well…
