It all start... with Hoborg - The Bad Ending


Klaymen still held the crown in his hands and looked at it, thoughtfully. So this was his father's crown Willie had told him about. He still didn't really know who Willie actually was, all he knew was that he had helped him all the way up to this point. Now he had to make his first big decision...

He shortly looked at Klogg, then back at the object in his hands. Klogg was bad... he had betrayed his own dad to become ruler... he...

"Nono..." Klogg put his hand a bit closer around Klaymen's shoulder and disturbed him in his thoughts with his weird yet friendly seeming voice. "Noooooo hurry. I can wait here as looooooong as you can."

He didn't seem THAT bad to Klaymen, after all. He didn't treat him to do anything, and he wasn't rude or nasty... anyways.... how should Klaymen know that *Willie* had been telling him the truth...? He looked at his older brother again, and Klogg gave him a wide, open smile. How could THAT guy be bad?

Klogg WAS his brother, and Willie was, according to the Wall in the Hall of Records, his cousin, and not the brightest guy, too.... Klogg seemed really smart, though, and if he'd REALLY be evil, he sure would have gotten rid of Klaymen without any problems, right? And Klogg hadn't put Klaymen in front of SO many riddles and puzzles, instead he simply wanted Klay to rule with him. That sounded nice... who knows what'd happen if he'd give Hoborg the crown...

The continous stare of Klogg and the silence in the room finally made Klaymen make his decision. He set the crown on.

Thunder rolled, and Klogg removed his hand from Klay's shoulder and shouted out triumphantly: "Yes! YES! He fell for it! I win!! AAH HAHHAHHAHHAAAAA!!!"

Suddenly Klaymen saw his mistake. Willie had been such a nice pal......... but it was too late. Willie had taught him so much on his way here, about good and bad and what was important in life... he had come so far, and now a little second under the pressure and influence of Klogg, it had all gone wrong. Up to now, Klaymen's soul had been innocent, but this one selfish thought Klogg had made him think was enough. The crown, that was made for innocent and rightious beings, turned evil.... and a moment later Klaymen wasn't any better than Klogg - evil, witty and corrupt.

Klogg was happy. Hoborg's last chance was now on his side. Together they'd...

Before Klogg realized it, Klaymen spread out his claw and knocked his brother down in a deadly movement. Klaymen grinned. This was better than all those riddles he had to solve before! He had the power to do ANYthing now! Who'd need friends if he could do everything all alone, and much better?? Spreading out his arms victoriously he looked up at Quater and laughed. "*I* am the ruler of this world now! Eeh heeheeheeheehar!!!"

... and Klaymen's evil laughter echoed though all the empty, dead Neverhood.
