Four Times the Hero - part 1The darkness was unsettling, and it felt like it was closing in on Red. He'd woken only moments ago with a very sore head. What happened? He thought as he sat up and wiped dirt from his cheek with the back of his hand. He looked around but there wasn't much to see without any light filtering into the room. "Green? Blue? Vio ?" His chest tightened; no one was answering him. Panic started to set in. He stood up and walked forward, arms in front of him so he wouldn't run into anything. His fingers touched cold, rusted steel and Red realized he was in some sort of jail cell. His eyes watered, lower lip quivered. "Green! Blue! Vio! Where are you?!"Four Times the Hero - part 14 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Ah, shut up!" Blue's voice came from the far left of Red. Ecstatic that Blue was within earshot, Red ran towards his voice, but ended up smacking his face into unforgiving steel bars and falling backwards square on his bottom. Blue was sitting in the middle of his own cell, arms and legs crossed, very grumpy. "If you weren't so damn
Four Times the Hero - part 2"Where are we going?" Blue didn't waste time questioning Green's plan. The four had taken several turns and discovered that they were in a maze of hallways. Some were lit and others were dark they'd avoided the dark ones so far due to Red's squeamishness.

"Wherever the exit is!" Green quipped right back.
"Let's stop," Vio called the group to a halt. They were all panting from the time and speed of their run. Vio stared at the wall closest to them and then down the length of the hallway, taking in all the details as if a clue to their way out would appear if he stared long enough. Taking a torch down from its holder on the wall, he looked to Red and said, "We're gonna have to go down one of the dark hallways."
Red began to protest, "But "
"These lit ones are leading us nowhere," Blue agreed. "Those shadowy guys took us right?"
"So their exit would be through the shadows," Green finished, catching on to Vio and Blue's tr
Four Times the Hero - part 6"Here we are!" Navi was the first on the beach. No one could deny that the sun coming up over the waves was a sight they loved to see after a dark night of wandering through the fields. Even the sounds of the ocean were a pleasant change from Navi and Red's chatter. As much as they all wanted a break, and a few hours of sleep, they wanted to keep moving more.Four Times the Hero - part 63 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Thanks for your help, Navi," Green smiled; there was only the smallest hint of exhaustion in his eyes. Without the fairy's help, the four heroes would probably still be going the wrong way. And even though Blue was starting to plan several ways to get Navi to permanently shut up, Green was still glad she was there.
"Yeah, thanks, bye," Blue tried to shoo Navi away. If he had to hear her say "hey" or "listen" again, he'd take Red's fire-rod and put it to good use.
"Hey!" Navi snapped. She, as much as everyone else, could tell Blue didn't like her but he could at least try to hide it better. She liked all the boys just so. "You tol
