“The Kraken is an unstoppable beast larger than fifty grown elephants.”Diary 151
Episode 5: Kraken Castle
Maddie’s legs were made of led, each limb was like a hundred pounds of weight yanking her to the dirt at her feet. Ever since the Kraken left, she felt like a reality star but with concrete injections instead of Botox. After the encounter with the Kraken, where Maddie somehow had tamed the terrifying creature into letting her live. She was having trouble focusing, the memory followed her like an addiction pulling her in against her will towards the thought. How did I do that?
Even though her Grandpa was also probably terrified he was looking for an escape. He had prepared her a fire and a little food as well. She was grateful to have an adult protecting her. She had no idea what she was doing. She had stupidly fell for an easy trap and gotten herself paralyzed. The only reason she survived this long is because she had gotten lucky. She only called for the monster to stop in desperation. She had no idea it would work, in fact she was fairly sure it wouldn’t.
“Maddie take a look at this!” Her grandfather called in excitement from the distance.
Far behind the pile of ships, off to the corner of the cave, a human sized wooden door was somehow on the wall. The odd door was somehow fully opened. It was leading into a beautiful room with a throne covered in candles and beautiful statues everywhere you turned. The biggest statue sat above the throne and depicted the very beast haunting her memories. An incredible kraken carved from stone almost as big as the real thing.
“Dont tell me something owns this thing.” Maddie wispered in horror looking into the throne room with pinpoint focus.
“Looks like it i’m afraid, I think this cavern is for the Kraken to come in and out. Allows it to be pet like but still bring them fresh prisoners.” He muttered this in pure disbelief but the evidence was there.
A throne for a king fond of Krakens with his own personal doorway to his Kraken cave was too much to think about. This must of been some kind of mental breakdown, Maddie had to be going mad on her boat right now. Her instincts told her otherwise.
She knew he was right. The Kraken is here to bring in prisoners. It must of grown too fond of Uma to turn her in. Her grandfather probably got beat up because he offended it. That means, their family and friends must have been turned in. Whatever candle obsessed Kraken worshiping king had her family she had to stop them.
