Getting into Mount Keo.

As I thought how to get in I looked down at the small village below. It has about give small huts they were all pitch black with a hint of red. Then a large hut caught my eye it wasn't black or red it was purple while I was looking I thought, "Maybe if I make some dry ice I might be able to get down!" Wow sometimes I'm dumb! It melted right before my eyes, and it wasn't even a refreshing mist! Okay, I was stumped. As I pondered other ways to get into the volcano, I looked down and saw thousands of lava bubbles. But that wasn't all I saw. There was also a red matoran in there. I'm not sure what he was doing, but I decided that maybe he could help me.
"Hey!" I yelled down to him. The matoran looked up, surprised.
"What?" It yelled back.
"How do I get down there?" I asked. The matoran looked at me for a minute then replied.
"Jump!"
"What?!?" I asked in shock. I wasn't gonna jump down there! What did he think I was, nuts? Just then, my foothold gave way. So instead of jumping, I fell. I wondered if I was supposed to die, if that's what the Great Beings had really wanted. I thought that was kinda cruel. Just as I thought I was supposed to hit the ground and smash into a billion little pieces, the matoran caught me.
"I told you to jump, not fall!" He said with a chuckle.
"Thanks," I said sheepishly as he put me down. The matoran was a red one, obviously, and about my height. There was a rock in the shape of a surfboard on the ground next to him.
"No problem. What are you doing here?" The matoran asked.
"I'm looking for a guy with the name Lekana." I replied. The matoran looked dumbfounded.
"Guy? Guy? GUY?!? GUY?!?" I jumped back as the matoran yelled at me. "I'm a girl!!!" Now I was the dumbfounded one. They hadn't told me I was gonna be with a girl.
"Um...I'm...ah..." I mumbled. Man, I felt really stupid. "Sorry..." I finally got out. Lekana sighed.
"Whatever." She huffed. "So, you found me, what do you need?" She asked quickly.
"I need you to help me on my mission to help save Karda-Nui from the Makuta." I answered after a short pause. She thought this over then picked up her rock-board.
"Sorry, I'm busy." Lekana then jumped on her board and pushed off into the lava. I stared at her as she just drifted around for awhile.
"What do you mean?" I asked finally.
"I mean, I have things to do."
"So you're too busy to pass on a mission from the Great Beings?" she stopped moving and I smiled to myself.
"What makes them so great anyway?" She asked to herself more than me. My jaw dropped open. How could she say that?
"Please come with me!" I turned to begging, maybe that would work on her. Suddenly, the volcano began to shake.
"Here's trouble," Lekana murmured. "FIRE IN THE HOLE!" She yelled, then she surfed over and grabbed me onto her board.
"What are you doing?" I asked her as she brought me out to the very middle of the lava.
"Picking daisies! What does it look like I'm doing?" She yelled above the roar of the volcano. "Hold on tight, buddy!" She yelled, so I did. And just then, the volcano erupted with a rumble and a roar. I held onto Lekana for dear life as we shot upward. I squeezed my eyes shut and tried to remember to breathe. Suddenly, I felt us falling. I opened my eyes and looked around. We were plummeting downward...fast! We hit the earth with a thud and I glanced around to see who had let out that girlish scream...then I realized it was me. Lekana chuckled.
"Relax! I don't usually wipe out till the bottom!" She laughed maniacally and I wondered how safe I was...I figured not very. We went over what felt like a thousand bumps and hills, and I thought I might just lose my insides. Finally, I saw the bottom of the volcano insight.
"I usually wipe out after this next hill," Lekana told me calmly. "But today I'm going for a record! See that little guy down there?" She pointed and I wanted to yell at her to be careful. (I'm an ice matoran, remember? Me+lava=REALLY BAD!!!) "He's gonna tell me if I beat the record...or even my record." She smiled and I thought she was insane. We were getting to the nearer to the bottom and I was getting nearer to fainting. Suddenly, we shot out over a cliff.
"I thought you said this was a hill!" I exclaimed as we flew through the air.
"Hill, cliff, same diff." Lekana laughed. "Oh, by the way, this is where I usually wipe out." She called over her shoulder. I clung to her as the ground came closer, and closer, and closer. We hit the ground with a jostling thud, and I was relieved that she hadn't wiped out yet. The lava under the board still freaked me out, but so far, we were okay.
"Wow! I made it!" Lekana said happily. "Now we have a new problem. I've never stopped without falling before." She said. I felt a scream escape my body as we made our was to the very bottom of the volcano. We sped past the little matoran waiting for us and crashed into a hut.
"That was totally awesome!" Lekana yelled as she peeled herself off the outside of the building. She ran over to the little matoran and looked at him eagerly. I, on the other hand, tried to avoid the lava seeping around the base of the volcano. I gingerly stepped over to Lekana, who was now smiling brightly.
"I DID IT!! I BROKE THE RECORD!" She screamed in my ears.
"That's very nice, but now I need you to help me." I said quietly. She stopped doing her little victory dance and stared at me.
"Okay." She said after a pause.
"Really?" I asked in shock.
"Sure! I mean, I can always come back, right?"
"Suuuuure..." I said slowly. "If we survive." I finished in a whisper she didn't hear.
"Okay then, let's get moving!" She exclaimed. And so we were off.
