Once there were three knights in a castle tutored by king Notch. The three knights were Antonio H, Blast the explosive at the age of 11, Tiger E, White who is the most mysterious of them who's age is unknown, and last but certainly not least Alexander J, Tech who has trained to be an engineer in the far east which at the present time is 12. There came a day where king Notch sent them off to build their own empire. “Thou shall need to remember to build your defenses strong for the Dragon is around these parts of the land.”said Notch. They went off expecting to build one castle for all of them. They were walking down the path to the designated spot for the castle and had a chat about how they would build it.
“Antonio do you have some of the Black powder from Far East?” Asked Tiger. “Yes, do you need some?” Replied Antonio. A nod of Tigers head had made the answer clear. “I’d like it if you can tweak my armor Alex, it produces to much sound and doesn’t give me the mobility I need?” Tiger asked after a while further down the path. “Of course I built you that armor.” Alex answered. “Oh that time when I met you two while I was training under a blacksmith in the Far East.” Alex reminded. “O it was a good day indeed.” Replied Antonio. “It is so funny how I am the only person in the land who can make armor that will fit you!” Alex exclaimed. Tiger, who was in remembrance of the time he met Alex and Antonio, let free a grin. They walked a little further along the path. “So how should we build the castle?” Alex wondered. “It should be strong with ten cannons at each side!” Antonio suggested. “It should be built with the nature around every corner hiding it from sight in the forest.” Tiger reasoned. “Made of cobblestone with an iron gate?” Alex asked, and Tiger answered with a snarl. “Obviously we have a disagreement.” Antonio announced. “Well how about we all build are own castle?” Alex suggested and so they separated to build their own castle.
They all went to get materials to build their castles at nearby town. Alex bought cobblestone and iron plates with some wood planks and string. Antonio bought iron, wood and Black powder. Tiger on the other hand didn’t buy anything but food. He went to the Forest and started building his Castle in the trees with the help of the native wild life. Antonio went to the site of where he would build his castle and started digging it out literally. Alex started slowly and carefully building his Castle making sure every part of it was sturdy and strong. Antonio’s was done in a day his Castle had been built of dirt and clay defended by cannons literally. Two days after that Tiger’s castle was complete, hiding in the forest defended by the wild life. In a month after that, Alex’s castle was finished sturdy and strong with iron gates, the walls made of cobblestone defended by the squad of crossbow archers who are sharpest shots in the land. Alex’s was truly the strongest of them all. During the wait for Alex, Tiger and Antonio were spending their time wasting away. When they have finished he suggested improving their castles, but they refused. “When the Dragon comes you will regret not improving your Castle.” Alex warned.
A day came when the fiery red dragon Ender heard news of the three new castles and wanted to see how well the defenses were. “I shall destroy these new castles I’ve heard so much about, trying to build empires in my land!” Ender growled then he started flying to the castles. When he arrived he Saw Antonio’s castle and thought. “I’ll start with that one.” Antonio spotted Ender and ordered the few man he hired to shoot Ender out of the sky. But the shots were but target practice to the mighty Dragon. “Thank you for the target practice.” Antonio heard the remark of the Dragon and was enraged. “You think you can destroy my castle easily!” Antonio yelled back to Ender and ran to a cannon and shot it at the Dragon but failed to land a hit. “Is that how you treat your guests. I’ll make short work of you and your castle of dirt” Ender replied and drew in a deep breath. Antonio knowing what was going to happen made a run for tiger’s castle. The Dragon burnt his castle to a crisp with an explosion soon after that. Ender saw Antonio running to Tiger’s Castle and followed him to the almost invisible castle. “I shall destroy your friend’s castle too.” Ender growled. When they both arrived at Tiger’s Castle, Tiger let Antonio in and told the guardians of his castle to use their projectiles. But the Dragon was to Swift for the critters to land hit with their acorns, and cannibals launched by catapults. Again Ender drew in a deep breath. Now both Tiger and Antonio knew what was going to happen and fled to Alex’s castle. He burned down Tigers castle and the forest. Ender followed Antonio and Tiger to Alex’s castle. “This castle might take a while.” Ender thought. Antonio and Tiger entered Alex’s castle. Ender drew a deep breath and let out his fire breath upon Alex’s castle but it withstood the attack. Crossbow archers shot at the Dragon and wounded it to the point he can barely fly. The Ender tried again but failed to scorch the castle nonetheless destroy it and again a wave of arrows flew towards him making his wings evermore weaker. He tried again with his fiery breath but all it did was set the new wave of arrows on fire adding to the pain that inflicted on him. Ender defeated and in pain let Alexander J tech build his empire in peace for a time.
Three years later
Chapter 1 a unnormal normal day
The Kingdom was peaceful as Alexander J. Tech, the King himself, strolled through the streets, talking with the citizens on the way to the wall. He looked at the damage from the night before and instructed a builder how to repair it. “Do you see where a creeper exploded? Fill it in with alternating obsidian and cobblestone,” he said. Then he -seeing it was midday- went to the Castle in the center of his vastly growing kingdom. Passing the second wall, he could see the dragon keep.
He had come to understand the creatures and made a haven for them and, in return, the dragons defend his Kingdom. He was glad they were on his side. He had battled a dragon and won, but he didn’t want to slay any of the intelligent creatures. In fact his best friend was one, a dragon with the elemental power of lightning. His name was Jiro; his electric blue dense scaly skin and bright blue under-wing made him invisible in the sky.
The keep was more like a mansion made for dragons with a section for each element; there was a tower for the ice dragons, an indoor pool for the water dragons, a lava lighting system for the fire dragon quarters, an underground cave system for the stone dragons living area, a second tower for air dragons, and a third tower that touched the clouds for the lightning dragons.
Now back to Alexander J. Tech.
I knew that Jiro was waiting for me by the dining hall doors as I walked up the steps that went into the castle. And as I walked up the last few steps, I stepped on a pressure plate (on purpose) and the front doors -3 meters wide and 2 meters high- opened for me. I was not spooked as most would be of the wallish doors disappearing in front of me, because I was the one who built it. Redstone-piston doors like these are efficient and the fastest opening, plus the system does not require manual labor. As I strolled into the main hall, I saw Jiro there by the dining hall just like I knew he would be. He was sitting there impatiently. I started running so it might seem as if I was running the whole way there. As I got to the dinning hall doors, he gave me the “What have you been up to this time?” look with his lightning-blue eyes that seemed to glow in the night.
As we entered the dining hall, I responded with, “Oh don’t worry. I haven’t been doing anything but my duties as a King.”
I sat at the head of the table with Jiro by my side. I ate a simple lunch of steak, bread and some cake. Jiro, on the other hand, had 5 pieces of steak and a whole cake. After lunch Jiro and I decided to have some fun, which was a flight to the North and I was going to try a flight spell.
-Flying isn’t that difficult because at that point, I’ve experienced flight before, and you cannot cast a spell for something if you haven’t experienced it or know what it feels like and looks like. –
So we went to a balcony and I got on Jiro’s scaly back. Then after a few take off flaps of his wings, we were off rocketing to the north at speeds immeasurable. The forest below us speeding by, and the warm air rushing over my face were the two things to remind me of the incredible speed we were moving at.
The experience gave me the feeling of freedom, and that’s when I decided to try my luck. Jiro, understanding my intentions, slowed his wings, and I jumped off of him. I fell for 30 seconds, and then I focused on the feeling of freedom; the freedom of flight. In that moment I gained control and was able to actually fly! Jiro gave a sigh of relief. He was scared for my sake and he had a reason to be worried. If it would have taken me a minute longer I would have crashed straight into a tree!
-In hindsight I was scared stiff. The thing that kept me doing it was only my trust, that Jiro would catch me if I could not cast the spell. And man! It was awesome! –
We were up there for about two hours, just flying and all in all having fun. I thought it would never end but we had to get back to the castle. Heading home I saw a few extra mobs gathered under the trees. I was still flying by myself when we raced to the castle. When we got there, it was sunset and the mobs where preparing to attack. A strange purple glow was coming from the ground near them. At the time I thought nothing of it.
Settling down in the courtyard, we then rushed to the wall. I was still hovering over the ground by mistake but I didn’t care. I wanted to get to the wall and help defend the kingdom. When I noticed that I was hovering above the ground, I stopped immediately and disengage the spell, simply by letting go of the feeling of flight. Now not hovering I ran to the wall and, as always, the captain of the guard met me on the way. He said, “Go back to the castle and get some rest. You shouldn’t be rushing out here every night. I have it under control; it’s just the usual monsters.” “Well then, when you don’t have them under control, I’ll be here if I keep coming out here like this.” I said. He rolled his eyes at my comment.
-I guess he was annoyed with me and honestly he had a right to. Every night I’d run to the wall and help with the battle. I never could just sit back and watch it. –
I continued up the wall. When I got up there, I noticed the purple tent out of the corner of my eye. I never saw anything like it before. The only thing comparable to it is the horizon during a forest fire. I was now aware of it. I thought one of the local mages had cast a spell or something. So I went to the castle, down the hall and into my bedroom. I was tired from the day and would be even more tired if I stuck to my routine. I noticed Jiro was out on the balcony, probably thinking to himself about the day. I was too; the flight give me a lot to think about. I got in my bed and went to sleep.
The Kingdom was peaceful as Alexander J. Tech the King himself strolled through the streets, talking with the citizens on the way to the wall and he looked at the damage from the night before and instructed a builder how to repair it.
“Do you see where a creeper exploded? Fill it with alternating obsidian and cobblestone” he said.

Now back to Alexander J. Tech.
I knew that Jiro was waiting for me by the dining hall doors as I walked up the steps that went into the castle. And as I walked up the last few steps, I stepped on a pressure plate (on purpose) and the front doors -3m wide and 2m high- opened for me.

I started running trying to make it seem like I was running the whole way there, as I got to the dinning hall doors he gave me the “What have you been up to this time?” look.
I woke up to Jiro still in his bed asleep. Half asleep, I got out of bed and put on the usual clothing; a blue short sleeve hoodie, Blue fingerless gloves, and jean shorts. It was the beginning of summer. -Many of my citizens criticize me for having such a simple outfit, which does not include purple for some reason that I do not know. Maybe because purple is rare die… -oh back to that morning. - Now dressed for the day, I went and opened up the curtains so that the morning sun would shine in the room. With a moan Jiro woke up it was easy to tell that he stayed up till midnight, which isn’t unusual for him but is unusual for a dragon. While he got to his feet I cleaned up the room. –Why are you looking at me like that, is it un-normal for a king to clean his own room? - With the room spiffed up, both Jiro and me raced to the dining hall for breakfast. “Bet you can’t beat me into the dining hall” I said Jiro replied with “that’s not fair we are inside and I have four legs you have two. I’m not built for running, I’m built for flying.” I arrived first, Jiro right behind me. Catching my breath I laughed and said, “yeah you would’ve won if we were outside!” Catching his breath Jiro opened the dining hall door and he entered then I followed him in. “you know you really should work on your corners that’s the only spots you usually slow down” I said as we ate breakfast, Jiro became a bit more self-confident visually as I said the latter. After breakfast I was to set up priorities for the kingdoms resources, which is personally a tedious task. After doing so, I went to meet Jiro in the castle gardens, which was where I found him practicing turning corners sharply and cutting corners at high speeds.
