At dawn, the townsfolk concluded to resume their path back to the palace, trekking down to the village and encountering different types of dragons who were able to withstand the bloodlust of the late emperor who mandated the manslaughtering. There are other dragons that can shift into human form for a short period, there is some kind of a dragon that lives under the ocean where they eradicate their prey by drowning them under the surf. There are hundreds of dragons with various kinds of species as they trek down the mountain. The night shifts into dawn as the day passes by from their voyage. As they were strolling, Igashu kept his sight on the prince who was acting strange ever since the day they took a break. Igashu's P.O.V I can't help myself but keep my eyes open to spy on the prince of his odd manner. I took a glimpse at him as he slightly peeks a gape at me who was spying on him. "Yes, dear?" He asked while ambling toward me. "N-noting your highness, I was just wondering i
As the Babylonian and the other dragons together with the prince and Igashu who were trekking back to the palace. Prince Artemis P.O.V "As we were trekking back to the palace, I suddenly felt muddled on our way back to the king's empire. I asked the townsfolk to seize a hiatus from our long jaunt, as I was perching next to a giant hedge, dozing right beside the border, from the moment I shut my eyes into the darkness, I woke up to a place where I think Igashu belongs. I tried to room around, wobbling my woolen robe called kaunakes, whirling with my twirls as I seized a notch stride. I took a step forward when a lady creepily chucked from behind as I twisted my back. I saw a weird-looking old lady showing a sinister smile on her face, cracking her knuckles, pulling something in the air as if she was taking someone else's soul. I kept staring at her until I decided to steer away from her and found myself back at the border where the townsfolk were sitting next to a fire, I notice
Igashu's P.O.V The next day, when I woke up. I saw the townsfolk sleeping next to their dragons while crunching their body into their stomach, cold and uncomfortable from the spot where they dropped themselves defenseless. I saw Epala who was sitting next to the stump, deeply thinking for some reason, showing her deadpan look at the sky as she didn't even notice me sitting next to her, staring at her as I tilt my head to hers. I saw sadness in her eyes which made me tear up. I tried to utter a word when I dropped a tear from my face and started wiping it off. Thought about what could be the ending part of my journey with her and with the townsfolk. I noticed that I started to act differently when I came here as if I act like a girl. This weird feeling of being moody and emotional without having a valid reason. I can't help but shed tears from my thoughts. As I minded my own business next to Epala, I didn't even notice her linking in my thoughts as she asked about me being emotional.
In the morning, at the king's palace where all his people were screaming for the introducer's sudden appearance, the king of Subartu has, at last, shown his true intention to the dragons and the royal emperor of the Akkadian empire, who protects the last dragon's existence from the late emperor's bloodlust. King Halton from the Subartu empire hunts and kills every dragon who is seen by this vicious ruler of the Subartu empire. While the Akkadian palace was seen to be very chaotic, King Guanyin secretly sent prince Artemis to the dragon's domicile to announce the evacuation to the dragons. As the prince instantly linked with the king's signal, he instantly leaped up to the sky and secretly soared to the Babylonian domiciles. When the prince arrived, he announced the sudden encroachment at the Akkadian palace. "The dragons need to leave this instant, the king of Subartu occupied the palace with his soldiers…" the prince said in a breathy way."What about the king? How is the king?"
"Epala, can't I bring you to my world? And the whole townsfolk?” “Igashu, if we happen to come along with you, who will protect the king and his people? The king needs us too” “But I want you to come, Epala” “I can't, after we send you back home, I'll join the king and return to him as my former owner” “But what if something bad happened to you, to the whole townsfolk?“ “I can handle myself Igashu” Those calm voices coming from Epala’s words, made him feel a little relief in his chest. Throwback to the time when dragons began to exist. In the legend, dragons were believed to be the first reptile that existed in the year of the Akkadian dynasty, which is the lizards. One time, an emperor of the empire asked one of his disciples to create something that would benefit from their lives, something that a king can only have and his royal blood. The king ordered this beautiful and fears full maiden to experiment on her witchcrafts training and the king would grant her one of her
Chapter 10. The Essence of Life It was fifteen years prior when I was sent to the royal residence to insure the health of the grandson of the fifth emperor of the Akkad realm. King Theoden Guanyin is known for his liberality and kindness toward his people. He was clever, shrewd, and a reliable father to his family and his people. He would send himself and expose his audience as a front liner amid a conflict between Elba and Subartu domain. The clash between these three-nation involves their organization's being against one another. "Amaya they said, am I right young lady?" The king retorted. "Greetings to the glorious father of this nation" I expressed, leaning before the king, expressing my courtesy to the royal highness. "You are sent to this palace to assist my grandson for his future regime and commit your life to our blood." The King mumbled. I caught a glimpse of his gaze glaring down straight to my soul with an intense aura. I then replied, "to be heeded, your royal highness,
Chapter 9 The Judgment of a Mender "Holiness, (A way of addressing courtesy to an Averchinari) Winona was out of the island, perhaps seeking out aid from the Black Ulysses to devour mana from the serpents. She was yet longing for her lover who deserted her" Elion mumbled. Pherhana Elion was a Schevelian Averchinari (A healer of mind and the Instructor of the tribe) Schevelian Averchinari is coated in a green four-leaf clover, in which the fortunate charm clings to their body, embodying what clan they have a place to. Their mint green hair lunges to their tail. Lanky ears and long sharp nails. And a headpiece floral crown gum into their head. A flower accessory can be caught a glimpse of each Schevelians Averchinari's neck, comprehending that the Emovenorioms / ancestor was inside their body. Once their accessory kicks the bucket, the mana they were devouring will vanish, recognizing that the Emovenorioms have cleared out the body. It might be retirement or abandoning the possess
Chapter 8 Awakening of the Dragons Welcoming the old time when the two of us collided. In my silhouette blue, a boy appeared from my sight, driving himself at me as I dropped myself to the ground, "Big sister, are you okay?" A delightful voice I heeded. My eyes were hazy to capture his face as my tears dwell inside my eyes. I shook my head off and exposed my wail to a stranger. I shriek out loud from the pang that corrupted me through the darkness. That was the first time I freed myself from my blue. His warm embrace cured and weakened my suffering, and my condition flickers into an ordinary one. That night, I felt warm for the first time, having somebody who cuddles you out of your blue, a person who never pleaded for a reason for your whimpering, but a person who dwelled to keep you company. The moment he held his hand at me, I felt secure, even for a brief period. I failed to buy his name, even expressing my genuine appreciation to him. He was a kid full of affection, his kin
