1. Cloud

In the village of Cloud two boys sat on the edge of River Floss. One boy, who had brown short hair and dark brown eyes, was called Timothy but most likely known as Titch. He was reading a book called ’Creatures of Nectar Plains’. The other boy was called Rupert, he had black hair and purple eyes, not many people liked him because of the way he looked, but Titch had grown a strong friendship with him. Titch and Rupert spend most days together and mainly talk about the mysterious world of Nectar Plains and the Hidden Valley.


Nectar Plains used to be a wonderful land of tall gleaming flowers and luscious green trees.  When in the sunlight the leaves glisten.  Flowing through the middle of the world was a glossy thick syrup river, which supplied the creatures with all the nourishment they needed.  But that was before the ring disappeared from the Cove of Destiny and the war began...  Since then the world has been made into a dark...dark place which no one can survive in.


“Did you know that there is a creature called the Oblivisci Me Primula in Nectar Plains?” exclaimed Titch.

“Yeah, it looks like an ordinary daisy flower at first but if you get too close it sprays you with a mystical potion which makes you forget everything!” Rupert answered.

"That sounds so cool, I really want to go and see it for myself”

"But you can’t, remember! No one is allowed to go down there until they turn fifteen and you have to be out of your mind to even step out of the portal!”Rupert shouted in Titch’s face.

"But Rupert I turn fifteen in two days and you turned fifteen two months ago. So in two days time we can go and find my father and the ring!”


Titch's father was a brave man.  He was one of the few people who went through the portal by choice.  His reason, to find the ring of unity so that the worlds can be at peace again.

The only problem was that no one knew exactly where the ring could be found, but there have been rumours about the ring being in a land that no one has ever ventured in, which we call the Hidden Valley.

Unfortunately, no one has seen or heard of Titch's father since then...


“No, no no no I am NOT going down to Nectar Plains it’s too dangerous down there!”

“Come on Rupert don’t get scared now, we have been dreaming about this moment for the whole of our life!”

“Oh... your right. But we will need to get some stuff ready before we leave” Rupert stood up and walked back to his house. Titch was left staring at the river. From all of the books he has read about Nectar Plains he surely knew everything; however one part of him knew that this knowledge was not enough.

There was only one person who would help him now, the survivor.
