The caverns of Onu-Metru are often found to be crisp and dark, being a habitat for wild rahi and mysterious being alike.
“We should go down into the abandoned archives,” Kapura said to his Onu-Matoran friend.
Aiyetoro rolled his eyes. “Please, I know what danger pose in there. Plus, we’re not supposed to go back into the Great Spirit Robot. You heard what Vakama said.”
“Yes, I know Vakama is wise. He even taught me my teleportation ability. Still, Toa Tahu told me he’d go with us to find this missing mask.”
“Which one is it?”
“The Krana-Kal. Tahu had learned that Ko-Matoran wanted to study some of the Krana, to learn more of their properties. They have a deep interest in the Krana-Kal masks.”
Aiyetoro sighed. “Fine. We’ll go. But I hope we don’t come into any danger.”
Kapura shook his head. “We should be fine.”
The next day, the two Matoran and Tahu, in his golden armor, traveled into the head of Metru Nui. It had been around 100 years since the disappearance of Mata Nui. Tahu and his other Toa friends had parted ways to partake in other missions. The Toa of Fire grunted along with the Matoran as they pushed through much rubble to find the entrance to Metru Nui.
“This is some -urgh- tough work,” Kapura grunted.
Tahu, with ease, picks up heavy rocks and tosses them to the side. Aiyetoro, with a shovel and pickax, digs through the gravel and sediment. After a few hours of hard work, the trio finds an entrance into Metru Nui.
“It’s Ga-Metru, but it should work,” Tahu said.
They peaked into their former island home. It was dark, and many of the glorious buildings were destroyed. Rahi could be found running silently and stealthily over the ruins of the temples and former schools. Tahu grabbed his fellow Matoran.
“And now, down we go!”
Tahu jumps off the ledge they used to get to Ga-Metru. The artificial gravity is still functioning inside the head. The Matoran and Tahu splash into the water, surrounded by a bubble filled with air. Then, Tahu starts to run, allowing the shield to project him forward.
The trio shortly come onto land in Ga-Metru. Tahu looks side to side, and then spots a cracked map of Metru Nui. He walks toward it and picks it up.
“Well, it’s gonna be a long walk, Matoran,” Tahu mentions, “But we’ll get there, in time.”
Just then, Tahu sense something coming from behind. He ignites his flame sword and turns around. Something jumps toward the Toa of Fire, but it misses with it’s mighty leap as Tahu dodges the attack. Then, he ignites the sword and burns the attacker. The attacker turns it’s head around 180 degrees.
“Wha-?” Tahu cried, before being shot by a Kanoka Disk.
Tahu’s body freezes in place. Kapura is shivering.
“What is that thing, Aiyetoro?”
Aiyetoro tries to remember, but he is fearful. Finally, words sputter out. “It’s a Vahki!”
The Vahki turns it’s head back around, and tries to fire a shot at Kapura, but Kapura flashes away. Then, the Ta-Matoran jumps upon the Vakhi, and holds back the head. The Vahki points it’s Staffs of Command up, but it’s arms aren’t flexible enough to reach.
“Aiyetoro! Help!” Kapura exclaims.
Aiyetoro’s feet dash in the rubble, leaving behind a cloud of dirt. He takes his pickax and stabs it’s sharp end into the Vahki’s head. The Vahki turns off, and crumbles to the ground. Kapura and Aiyetoro start to breath hard.
“That was close,” Kapura gasped.
Meanwhile, Tahu’s face poked out of the ice he had been surrounded in. Enraged, he ignites his fire sword and melts the ice.
“What was that?!” Tahu yelled.
“A Vahki,” Aiyetoro stated. “Those robot things Turaga Whenua once told me about. Dunno why this one was still functioning.”
Tahu’s eyes scanned the ruins. “Someone is still here, lurking in the shadows.”
