Oh no. I should have seen it coming and just ran! Oh, I was so foolish to ignore the "gecko guard's" hologram glitches! Was it even a hologram? You know I don't even care right now what it was. Illusions, phantom magic... what's done is done! What matters now is that I'm TRAPPED! I'm now prisoner to these–
I'll just start from the beginning.
So, while I was not able to write in my journal, the gecko guards were beginning to act weirder than ever. And I don't mean regular gecko-weird, I mean REALLY weird. At first they were only all shifty-eyed and suspicious, but then the things they started talking about when they thought I was asleep were just... I don't know. I couldn't understand them because they were speaking in lion. Of course, half asleep myself I just dismissed it as being a strange hobby of their's... oh, doubt was my downfall.
I also saw through my half lidded eyes on many nights two lions instead of geckos. Was I afraid? Of course, but I mistook it for a nightmare. First day suspicions, second day doubts... and then here I am; Rainy the gullible crocodile who was probably the first in Jamaa history to fall for an illusion!
If anyone is still confused: Long story short, the gecko guards were actually lions and now they've taken me prisoner.
It was NEVER a serious quest, they were just taking me as prisoner!
Or was it? The gecko guards seemed pretty genuine up until a few days pass. Maybe they were... Oh, do I dare say REPLACED?
Maybe that's how phantom magic works, if they indeed used it. I wish I could just write to Berry! I should have let them come along. I can't fight these lions on my own... I thought I would have an army waiting for me but at this point I don't even know! Are we even going in the write direction? These lions don't even have a map– Oh wait. They do, but they're reading it upside down.
I'M DOOMED. I'M DOOMED I'M DOOMED I'M DOOMED I'M DOOMED!
Wait... I have an idea. At some point Berry will probably come looking for me! Yeah, that's it. Or Happy! Maybe they'll both come looking for something else, and stumble upon this journal! Yeah! Hope is never lost!
Okay, if Berry, Happy, ANYONE is reading this, my name is Rainbow the crocodile prince and I've been captured by the lion kingdom! I... have NO idea where they're taking me, but if they were masquerading as the gecko guards from the start, they are taking me to the crocodile kingdom! If they interrupted the REAL gecko guards' mission... they're probably trying to get me away from the kingdom somehow.
If that's the case, then you can just throw this journal away because I'm surely doomed! But please find a way to the crocodile kingdom ASAP... Please I'm counting on yo–
"Hey, what the heck are you writing it, you slime lizard thing?"
"Hey, give that back!"
"Ha, lemme read that! Uhhh... that says, mmm.... uhhhh...."
"YOU KNOW WHAT, LITERACY IS FOR NERDS! I'm throwing this away."
My plan is somewhat worki– oh no.
"I can't believe you ate that whole journal."
"I can't believe it either, haha. *burp*"
no no no no no no no no no no no.
*TO BE CONTINUED IN SEPTEMBER!*
