Rei was in pain, he didn´t know what to do. The queen wanted to make a deal with Rei. He was not sure if he wanted to accept it or not. If he did accept it then there was a high chance he would die, but if he did not accept it then all the captives would die.
Rei knew that the only way of him going home with Abdyl was if he accepted the deal. Without thinking again Rei agreed to the deal. The queen seemed to be happy about that. She began walking back to the queen´s throne room and gestured for him to follow.
When they went inside, the queen sat on her throne. The harpy seemed to be ready for the fight. She was small, so it might be an easy match, Rei thought. Soon after the queen announced the start of the fight, the harpy charged towards Rei. He took a few steps back trying to grab a rock.
The harpy swung her wings hitting pushing Rei hard onto the floor. He landed with his head hitting a rock. He swiftly grabbed it and threw it towards the harpy, but his aim was bad. The rock hit the button in the queen´s hand. Soon, they would all explode.
The moment, Rei´s rock hit the button in the queen´s hand, the whole place exploded into pieces. It started in the queen´s throne room and extended all the way to Abdyl and the other captives. Everyone in the caves died that night.
At the end of the day, it was raining above the surface. No one on the island knew what happened that day. Rei´s and Abdyl´s story will remain a secret, until the real queen returns from her mission.
