"I don't remember what I happened but all I remeber is this massive blue wave hitting me. And now, I'm in this strange new place with with followers that once followed my mother....mother." A young girl no more than 15 years of age spoke aloud to herself as she was in a deep cave, along with several others that were not hers.
The girl, Princess Kyra. walked to down the carven to address her fellow subterrian reptillians; the Locust Horde.
Or what's left of the mighty race.
She didn't know much about what happened so long ago, all she could remember about her past was that her mother, the former Queen Myrrah, told her at a young age that the humans or "ground walkers" as how her mother described them, being nothing more than monsters and how they forced her children underground while they stayed up in the surface.
But part of her wondered if those stories were true, though the youjng girl didn't know much about the surface, other than how the humans were known only for war and fighting with each other.
But now, all she needs is to carryout her mother's wish and that would be to conquer the surface, by any means necessary. She went through a opening and found herself standing on top of a ledge, the cave was fairly lit as below her were her mother's children.
There was approximatly 50 of them. 10 of them were Boomers, 38 of them Drones, one Kantus Priest and one Berserker. Kyra watched them as they were injured, though she kept an eye out for the Berserker female as even though she's blind, she has tremendous strengh and will kill and will kill anyone in her path. Luckily, this one seems to know who is the enemy and who are friendlies.
These Locusts were injured from the massive wave and the princess feared that many will die from the effects of the wave. The long pale haired blonde adjusted her royal Locust dress, adjusted her crown piece on her head, took a deep breath and spoke.
"Attention my mother's children." The princess spoke with a high voice as it echoed throughout the cave.
The Drones and Boomers looked upward and gazed at the heir of their former Queen. Kyra watched as they grunted and spoke in their native tongue, which was basically a low fom of English.
"The Queen." One of them spoke in a low rough voice.
"Where Queen?" Another said
The youjng princess spoke. "I am not your Queen, I am your princess." She told them. "Queen Myrrah, your Queen and my mother, has perished." Kyra bit her lip at the thought of her late mother.
The Locust began an uproar with snarls and grunts. "NOOO." One of them gripped his rifle tightly.
"Queen dead, no rule." There was a hysteria forming among them as things were getting out of hand.
Kyra watched as her mother's children began fighting each other. She wasn't a leader, the princess only watched and observed how her mother ordered her subjects on whta to do. How can she be able to be like her mother if she can't address them as their new ruler.
It was then that gunfire erupted and the Drones were shooting each other. Krya watched as how many were struck by bullets, some tackled each other to the ground and pummel them. The Boomers fired their Boomshots at them and each other, a couple of them exploded on contact.
"Everyone calm down." Shouted the princess but to no avail.
Suddenly, the Berserk went on a rampage and crushed the other Drones with ease. If this doesn't stop the Locust race will be extinct and her mother's dream will vanish.
What seemed like a hopeless effort to stop them, Kyra didn't notice the Kantus standing by herside as it began chanting. The princess turned and watched It as it was chanting in a deep tone, waving it's hands as it's body glowed. The Drones and Boomers stopped their fighting and looked up at the Kantus priest, their bodies were too glowing. The Berserker too, stopped her rampage after crushng a Drone under her foot.
The princess watched as how the priest kept chanting until finally stopping. "The Queen is dead." It spoke in a disorted voice. Her heir, Princess Kyra, soon be the new Queen." It raised it's hands in the air. "Our new Queen!" It spoke aloud.
The others soon followed suit. The princess felt a little relieved that the fighting stopped but being crowned a Queen, its just not sitting right for her yet. "Kantus." She told spoke to the priest.
The tall being looked at her. "I don't know your name but I'll call you Roga." Kyra told it.
The Kantus Priest took a moment nodded. "Yes, Roga." It spoke in the same manner.
The princess nodded. "Okay and since you seem to know what to do since you managed to calm them down, I'll make you my personal assistant."
Roga nodded in agreement.
"Good, now then, we need to talk about my current status as queen later but first, we need to expand this cave for now." She looked at her late mother's subjects.
"Attention my subjects." Her voice silenced the remaining Locust. "Before we move to the surface, we must expand our home." She spoke aloud.
The Drones and Boomers shouted and grunted with acceptance.
"If we are to survive in the surface, we must scout the surface and gather food." Her followers grunted.
"Now, Boomers will begin expanding by excavating this cave. 25 of you Drones will burrow deeper underground, 10 of you will restrain the Berserker to prevent her from causing anymore damage. And the rest of you, venture forth into the outside for food and survey the area." The princess addressed her orders.
The small Horde did as what they were told and thus began the journey to become a mighty race once more.
One Week Later
The cavern that once was large as been turned into a massive tunnel. The enterance was gaurded by two Drones as they scanned the area. Further deep in there was an undergorund city being built, about two hundred feet underground. Despite having only being a few the subterreanean creatures knew how to build dig deep into the rock and with eyesight adjusted to the dark, along with endurance, are able to push themselves beyond their limits.
Though once the massive cavern had been escavated it was time to build structures like hubbles, a pen of somesort but most of all, a tower for their queen. The princess stayed at the top, overlooking the area, while the Drones and Boomers worked. After learning what gender her subjects are, she learned that the Drones are male and the females, which makes her wonder how they'd reproduce if the Berserker cannot be tamed.
Also, she learned that Kantus's are male, which makes her wonder if there are any females of that type; the same could be said for the Boomers.
Roga walked up next to her, a concern look on the priest's face. "Princess." He spoke in his disorted voice.
"Yes?" The pale blonde turned to face him.
"Ground Walkers, sighted near the cave."
"Ground Walkers?" Kyra said confusly. "You mean humans."
"Yes." He said in a low tone of voice.
The princess was on full alert. "Have the guards stand guard and do not engage."
"But highness, they are human." The Kantus showed concern. "We kill humans on sight, that's what old queen says.
The young princess inhaled sharply about her late mother. "I know, but she's gone and I'm soon-to-be queen. Now my orders are as such, do not engage the humans but if they enter the cave and if they go in any deeper, capture them but don't kill them, bring them to my chamber." She ordered.
Roga wasn't sure if this was the best course of action, giving to the fact that they are humans. The previous queen would have ordered to kill them but she's gone and now her daughter is the new ruler.
The Kantus nodded and went off to tell the guards what to do.
The princess watched him leave as she looked back at the construction site. Humans, just the thought made her wonder if they are gonna be like the ones her mother told her when she was younger. Though part of her hopes that it wasn't the case, her plan would be to establish a peaceful connection, something that her mother didn't do.
However, there is a chance it could go wrong and become hostile. What if they'd attack and try to wipe them out. There are many possibilites that could go wrong but there are possibilities that could go right.
She knows the risks but only time will tell if she made the right choice.
