So this turned out longer than I expected. I don’t think future posts will be as long, but who knows! I apologize if there are any mistakes. I do use Word, but sometimes it does not like me.
Now remember to look for that random word! If you don’t know about it, tap or click on the random word page to find out what it is!
“Sire!” A guard pushed the thick wooden doors open. Panting, he hunched over and grabbed his knees. The throne room grew quiet, as heads turned to peer at the man.
“What is going on?” A booming voice sounded from the man in the throne chair. Another man ran over to the out of breath guard.
“Are you alright?” He asked. The guard held up a hand, signaling them to wait. After a moment, the man stood up fully and addressed his King.
“Sire, there are demons fighting each other on the boarder! Powerful ones! We have already started evacuating the villages around the boarder!” The King stood up abruptly, his expression grave.
“How long did it take you to get here?” The King started making his way to the guard.
“About half an hour. I had the fastest horse I could get at the time.”
“Good. It will take a while for them to get to here. Caim!” Scraggly, shoulder-length chestnut hair whipped around as the King turned toward a man with short, raven hair and dark stubble dusting his face. Serious midnight black eyes looked at the King, already knowing what was going to be said.
“Let me guess, secure the town and make sure the demons do not get inside?” His deep voice bellowed out. The King gave a knowing smile.
“Exactly. You always know what I’m going to say. That’s why you are the best military general.” Caim gave a small nod back.
“I know. Now stay here, in case they make it into- “He was cut off by the sound of an explosion. All heads turned towards the noise.
“What was that?” The King started to run for the doors, his subjects not far behind.
Outside on a large veranda, they saw several smoking buildings on the outskirts of town. A long patch of trees beyond the buildings seemed to have disappeared.
“What-?” A house disappeared in a puff of smoke or dust. They couldn’t be sure which it was. A small figure appeared in the sky. It looked human, but they knew it wasn’t. Humans didn’t float.
“The demon?!” A well-muscled green-haired man turned toward the guard that had told them of the attack.
“I though you said that they were half an hour behind you?!” He asked.
“Th-They were! They must have flown here! I said they seemed powerful!”
“Well now what?! At this rate, they will level the town!” The King exclaimed. Caim stepped in front of him, a hand on his sword.
“We will have to fight them. I will mobilize the soldiers.” Just as he was about to run away, the green- haired man jumped in front of him.
“Wait! You can’t fight them! It will be suicide!” Caim scowled at the man.
“Then what do you want us to do, Isan?! We must act quickly! People are dying as we speak!”
“We will evacuate the city! That is the only solution! We have barriers for a reason!”
“Isan is right, Caim. The mages have already started to put up the barriers. We must evacuate.” The King spoke up, his voice holding no room for arguments. As the King spoke, spheres of clear blue light decorated the town below. Debris was seen bouncing off of them.
“See? They are working.” Caim clenched his fists at his sides, the knuckles turning white.
“Fine. Then I shall start instructing soldiers to help with the retreat.” As he made to walk away, a hand clapped down on his shoulder, stopping him. He turned to see his King smiling at him.
“If it were any other situation I would have fought them head on. But the people come first. Fighting would only be a waste of lives. You are strong and could take them on, but it’s not worth it. You understand, right?” Caim’s once scowling face seemed to become emotionless again. He nodded.
“Yes. I know. It just hurts to retreat. Now I must go.” The King returned his nod with his own and let go of the other man’s shoulder. Caim ran off through the front gate, already barking orders to the men waiting outside.
Another explosion shook the ground underneath the castle. A dust cloud was seen just below them, where the market was located.
“How are they getting past the barriers?!” The King shouted. The crowd watched as the attacks the demons used went right past the spheres and crashed into the buildings.
“I don’t know. The debris is still bouncing off, but their magic seems to be going right through. I’ve never seen anything like it.” Isan commented.
“We need to move everyone out quicker! I will go and help!” The guard ran off through the gates once more.
“Sire, we must go too! It isn’t safe here!” The lime haired man exclaimed, pulling his liege’s arm, who seemed to be frozen in place. His eyes wide as he saw the destruction of his town.
“They’re destroying everything. And we can’t do anything to stop it.” He whispered to himself. Joyous laughing could be heard as something crashed into a nearby tower. An anguished scream soon followed it.
“We have to leave!” Isan forcibly pulled the King toward the front gates. The King shook his head, snapping out of his shock. He ran with his green-haired general, dodging any wayward rocks.
Thank god Akemi is on a trip. The King thought to himself.
They were almost to the exit, when something crashed in front of them. They were pushed back by the impact and fell to the ground behind them. More laughter could be heard in the sky, as the cloud of dust cleared.
The humans looked up at the female figure floating in the sky. Her bright red hair flowed around her, reaching her hips. Emerald eyes were lit with joy, as she stared at the other demon that had fallen.
“Heh, not very strong today, huh? Getting tired already, Miiiiiiiisa?” The woman’s whole upper body arched backward, as she cackled joyously.
Coughing could be heard coming from the dust cloud, along with sounds of dirt shifting. The humans watched as the dust cleared in an instant.
Standing in the middle of a small crater was another woman, her form slumped over but still standing. Her head was tilted toward the other demon, long black hair seeming to reach to her ankles. A hand clutched at her side, blood flowing through it. Fiery red eyes seemed to glow as they glared at the demon woman still cackling in the air.
Meanwhile, the humans were watching what would happen next. Except the King.
His eyes were locked onto the beautiful woman in the crater. Time seemed to slow down for him, as he looked at her. His eyes were wide and his mouth was dropped open. Heart thumping in his chest, he only had one thought in his mind.
