Bill gave Ben another blank look of his own. Then he turned to face the wizard himself for a answer.
“Why is it us. I don’t think you were looking for us, Mr. Wizard,” said Bill worried.
“I saw your surname Mayer in your doctor’s room. I’ve been looking for that surname and Mr. Walters too,” Wizard answered back looking at Ben.
“Why us, what do we have that you want. What have we done wrong?,” asked Bill.
“ It is not what you have done, it is who you are that makes the difference. I’m on a mission to find members of a ancient group,” explained the wizard.
He kept on drinking his glass of water as he grabbed his dinner and started eating. Bill and Ben regrouped to wonder about the old wizard’s words.
“What does he by, a ancient group?’” Bill quized Ben.
“Don’t know but I wanna find out,” Ben answered.
Ben sat down next to Wizard this time as Bill stood and watched on. The wizard was busy into his meal as Ben asked him questions of his own.
“ What group is this?”
“The group is called the Legomen, a group that started about 200 years ago,” Wizard spoke with half a spoonful in his mouth.
“And does that have to do with us?” asked Bill now abit ticked off at the whole Legomen idea.
The wizard got up with his finished meal and placed it in the sink and turned around.
“The Legomen have everything to do with you. They are your ancients, not just yours but many other people across the world. I believe by finding the ancients of the group then we have the best chance of defeating the evil that is to come to LegoLand.”
Bill tossed his head and sat on the lounge with Ben. He gathered his thoughts about the matter before he shot out another question.
“Ok, we ‘belong’ to this group you talk of. What is this evil that’s coming?” asked Bill.
“200 years ago, not on the dot or anything, about 200 years back. It was when the evil Zare killed off the last of the Legomen that he promised that he would return after we had a bit of a fight in the castle lands. Now I know Zare well and I know he’s returning to fight me and take over LegoLand for his own use. I am starting up the Legomen so we can stop Zare for once and for all.”
“Ok, ok. Either this is true story about a secret evil no one knows of or this is a crazy story made up by you,” thought out Bill.
“It is true, you will believe me when he comes,” answered Wizard.
Bill and Ben didn’t know what to believe now, they either believed it or didn’t. The pair got together again and thought about it.
“Do we believe him or not,” asked Ben.
“ He’s seems to be smart, not stupid. We’ll believe and see what happens next,” spoke Bill.
The pair turned around to Wizard again. The wizard was busy thinking of how to start his elite group of men. He look around the house and thought about something he saw earlier in the day.
“We need funding, and we need the aid of the mayor of the city. I saw his house earlier today. I wonder if we could ask him for some help,” suggested the wizard.
Bill and Ben looked at each other funnily. The mayor nor the Lego City was a bank Ben decided to explain this to Wizard.
“You can’t just go in there and ask for money. We would all like to do this but it’s just not possible,” Ben said in a light manner.
“We have to. It’s the only way to get funding and support for the Legomen. I made a date with him,” told the wizard holding a card.
Bill walked over and snatched it from Wizard. He looked at it shock and turned back to the wizard.
“You idiot, you can’t do this. You’re not even dressed for the date with the mayor.”
“I have suit in the closet,” suggested Ben.
Bill turned to Ben and shook his head, he gave the card back to Wizard and walked off to his bedroom. Ben stood to Wizard thinking.
“Well, I think you can do it,” smiled Ben.
“I hope so. Or we won’t be so lucky for funds in the future,” said a worried Wizard.
The trio were standing next to the mayor’s door and Bill was adjusting Wizard’s tie on his suit.
“Now just follow me and I hope we get though this alive,” instructed Bill.
Wizard just nodded and Ben opened the door as the three walked in. The mayor’s chair turned around to reveal a happy faced man.
“Welcome welcome to my new home!” he cried out.
“New home,” whisper Wizard to Ben.
“This mayor was elected only a week ago,” explained Ben to a nodding Wizard.
“Sit, sit down everybody. What can I do for you?” he asked.
Everyone sat down as Wizard was the first one to start off.
“ Well sir. I am here for the group the Legomen. In the not too near by future, a evil force is coming to the land and I’m preparing a group to stop this person.”
“Ok – what else?’ asked the mayor.
“We are here to ask you for funding for the Legomen. We don’t have the money or power to buy anything, such as a castle,” spoke the white haired wizard.
The mayor froze in his chair thinking and looked at Bill. Giving the look is this guy mad or what?
“He’s right in my books, and I’m a doctor,” said Bill.
The mayor then smiled again and laughed at the Wizard.
“I knew that dear old Wizard. I never thought you were crazy or anything. I thought it was weird to hear about a new danger coming to the Lego City,”
“LegoLand, the whole world is in for the ride,” added the wizard.
“Oh yes ok, the whole world now. Right,” nodded the mayor.
“Are you taking me serious or you think I’m stupid!” cried Wizard.
“No, of course not,” sighed the mayor.
As the two are were talking, Ben heard large heavy footsteps as the mayor’s doors were blasted open. The mayor looked in shock as a pirate with a mate came bolting in with a paper. His hook came crashing down on the desk just centimeters from Wizard and the mayor’s own hands.
“What the hell has happened with my visa,” the pirate snapped.
The mayor picked up the paper and looked at them.
“They have expired” gave a smirked looking mayor.
“Who are you to talk to me like that, I’m Captain Hook to you,” he snapped once more.
“And I’m Mayor Davis,” smiled the mayor.
“Are you going to fix it? The month’s wrong on the form,” he cried.
Wizard just patently stayed in his seat. Bill and Ben hide in the corner worried by the sight of the pirates.
“Sure I can do that. Just get one of hard working members here to fix it up,” smiled the mayor.
“Good, see you later,” cried Captain Hook and he stormed out of the room and shut the doors hard making Bill’s eyes shake.
“What the hell, I’ll let the funding go through. You seem to be a better character than that bloody Hook before.”
“Thank you,” smiled Wizard and he look at Bill.
“Oh my god, he did it,” thought Bill.
