Nephla walked slowly into the woods as she needed to clear her head, being the queen of Onyx wasn’t something regular for her and she felt anxious on how her leadership was going to be. She knew that Stylx was going to really need her services and there was no room for any mistake as that will spell issue not just for her and Stylx but the whole of Onyx, something that was sure to have huge consequences. She felt tired of walking and decided to rest on a rock, there was no aid as she had stopped her escorts from following her as she walked into the woods. Just then she was lost in thoughts and unknowingly slept off.Caglx was threading in the woods, he had a heated argument with his wife and decided to walk out so as to avoid making it physical, he murmured as he kept kicking stuffs on his path. He knew he was at fault but couldn’t bring himself to apologize to his wife. He knew he was in the urge for intimacy and the way he could rightfully get it w
“Why would he carry out such barbaric act against we the councilmen even if he got orders from the king, you should have said no. Have his men strip us and whip our backs to sore is simply unforgiveable? Walyx complained bitterly to Caglx as they walked towards their first council meeting after King Stlyx recalled them from suspension. “True but we had it coming, the king had always expressed his displeasure about lack of decorum in the court house, he practically had to beg us last time on it but yet we disregarded his pleas and made mockery of his warnings so we kind of had it coming” Caglx replied as he tried to defend the king’s actions knowing fully well how Walyx had always shown his displeasure towards King Stylx. Walyx gave Caglx the wicked look, hissed and walked away. “Hope you will be coming over to my place later tonight with your family, my wife is making a special meal tonight?”, Caglx shouted at him as he hurried into the courtroom.
The panting councilman panted heavily as he made through the dungeons of the river that flowed out of Onyx to other kingdoms in the Sunero. He knew that by now, his absconding would have already been noticed by the knights and a search for him would have already begun so any delay could enhance his recapturing. He felt really bad about the action he was taking and wished he could just turn himself in to the King but knowing fully well about the consequences of such act made him shrug off the thoughts and hastened up his weakening pace. He had to get to the outside of the walls before its mouth is cordoned off by the guards of Onyx.King Stylx was shocked when he got the news of the absconding councilman, of all the people he suspected, he was the last person to come to his mind. Why would he arrange a hit man to go after his army general daughter on her wedding day, why kill the innocent child for a grudge with the father based on an action he instructed the man to carr
“I know a lot of you may be wondering why I used such extremes measures on you last time, disrespecting and disregarding your public status and honors. Well, I must admit that it wasn’t easy subjecting you all to such treatment but I wanted to use that medium to make everyone of us understand that no one is bigger than the integrity and glory of this unique kingdom so any attempt to tread upon the glory of this kingdom with scorn will be greeted with measures as strict as the one that was meted out last time. So be it in any gathering be it small, great, insignificant or not, not minding who or what that are gathered, as far as it has something to do with Onyx then there must be utter orderliness and respect of proceedings in it. Nothing less than total respect for the city of lights” King Stylx said as he walked across the courtroom before gradually taking his seat on the throne of fire. All the council men remained standing as he spoke and only took their seats after voicing in af
Stylx couldn’t believe what has just happened to him in the cave, there were still a lot of unanswered questions in his heart. Weoss didn’t offer him the opportunity to clear those burning doubts in his mind, Coming down from the lofty mountain where the Eagles dropped him off, he felt somehow disappointed that his meeting with Weoss didn’t take that burden of curiosity off his mind. “ Gosh” he exclaimed as he missed his footing and painfully slid down some part of the mountain. ‘But come to think of it, He left assurances of ways to get Him and clear difficulties and doubts in his ruling, maybe he didn’t give him outright answers because He wanted him to be in close communication always and see the need to always have him around’’ he thought to himself as he sighed deeply and made his way into the woods Nephla heard sounds emanating from the royal room as she made her way si
Stylx moved gradually into the cave as his name kept resounding on the walls due to the persistent calling of it by Weoss. He was scared because he knew that no one had seen Weoss and live, it was eithed the mystic lion was in its floating form or He speaks through intermediaries in order to pass His message across. As he approached the place where the name calling was coming from, he began to feel the heating effect of Weoss presence as he made to continue, he heard a voice that order him to stop, remove his sandals and proceed carefully in as Weoss hated the sound of footwears when in His presence as He felt the sounds were like impurities to His hearing. Stylx walked in carefully as he could hear the little rumbling sound of Weoss breathings. Then for the first time in his life, Stylx saw the figure of the Mystic Lion through the shadow it casted on the wall with its image, he knew best not to pry further in order to discover the full viee of Weoss as he knelt down, bowed his hea
Leaning by the doors he just slammed shut, King Stylx slid down the doors and crashed to the ground. He had always wanted to be king but this task before him was undauntly fearful and scary. How can he face off with creatures of time and entities that once had Weoss wounded. He had no Gogla or fairies to help him with this, this wasn't about armies or manpower like the librarian said earlier, this was a battle of the supernatural and ancient powers. He still doesn't know the full picture of the whole story jugding from what the librarian said about uncovering the full story when they were to converge later on. He could still remember what Weoss had told him the night after which he was crowned king, he didn't read much meaning to it but now it all made sense, every single word the Mystic Lion said were now fitting togetherAfter the whole burdensome crowning event, King Stylx had retired to the royal chambers. Smiling at the sculptor of him in the centre of the pathway to the
Stylx watched Nephla as she slept soundly beside him, he smiled as he gave her a kiss on her forehead. He could remember their first mistake in those days when the starlights were chased out of Onyx, their bout in the training camp of the starlights as they were building an army. He could still remember vividly how he made Nephla tap out when he locked her arms in his legs and even the sound of her arm breaking was still loud in his eyes. He pulled her close and cuddled her tightly, Nephla made low sounds as she awoke gently, staring into the eyes of her beloved, she noticed that his eyes were getting watery. "What's wrong my king?" She asked as she tried to wipe off some of the drops that were now crawling down his cheeks. "Please forgive me for hurting you badly in the past" Stylx said as he held her tighter, with his eyes firmly shut. Nephla smiled, sat up and kissed his shut eyes gentle which made them open gently. "It's alright my love, all are now in the past, if the story had
