The toa were tracking a squad of rahi through the jungle of Le-Wahi one day. They had been terrorizing Le-Koro, and Turaga Matau had asked them to keep them under control.
"Did we huntfind them yet?" asked Lewa. He was tired. He wasn't used to walking. "Why must we groundwalk, when I can windfly?"
"Because," Tahu interrupted, "We don't want you running into the rahkshi alone." As normal, he had a short fuse.
"But it will be much hurryfaster," Lewa answered.
"Calm brother," replied Gali. "Tahu is right. Isn't he Kopaka?" The Toa of Ice merely gave her a cold glare.
"You know," Pohatu interjected, "You could answer your sister once in a while Kopaka. It helps us know that you're still alive in there." He and Onua pounded fists at his joke. Kopaka flicked his wrist, causing a patch of ground to ice over, which led to Pohatu falling face-first into a pile of mud.
Kopaka started chuckling. "Now, that is funny," he said in his icy tone. Takanuva started snickering too.
Suddenly, a bioquake broke out. Onua bent down and placed a palm on the ground. "Something's not right," he said. "I can feel it. There's a disturbance, much bigger than the rest, over that way." He pointed, and all the Toa ran to the point.
Tahu, reaching it first, skidded to a stop. He was at the edge of a giant, starry chasm. He wondered how far down it went. He didn't have to wonder long. Gali, quickly followed by all the others, barreled into him, causing all of them to topple into the chasm, where they would end up Mata Nui knows where.
I was sitting on the couch in our basement. I was watching "The Doomsday Machine", which had to be my favorite episode of Star Trek ever. Due to the fact that I was watching it on a 50 inch plasma screen, it looked awesome. Suddenly, I heard a rumble, and a crash from the laundry room. "Oh crap," I said to myself. "My parents are gonna kill me." See, I'd been left home alone for a weekend. My parents were doing this to show they trusted me, and if I blew this, they'd never trust me again. I bolted to the door of the laundry, and skidded to a stop, my eyes widening in shock.
There was a tangle of bodies on the floor, all yelling and kicking at each other.
"Kopaka, my legs are going numb! Get off!"
"Pohatu, get off my head!"
"I'm not on your head!"
Hearing these names, and being able to catch glimpses of them amongst the ruckus, I deduced who they were. They were none other than the Toa Nuva! I'd been a Bionicle fan since the age of seven, and actually meeting the Toa Nuva, well, this was too much! My mouth opened and closed like a fish.
By the time I'd gotten out of my stupor, they'd managed to straighten themselves out. They were all standing up with their backs to me. I still couldn't believe it. I pinched myself to assure this wasn't a dream. The pain assured me it wasn't. This was real! "Oh my God!" I said without meaning to.
The toa heard me, and spun around, finding themselves face to face with me.
