Previously: Arsem has made Azhir his new general, and is now marching towards the Vixen Capitol.
About this creation
Music for this chapter:
The forces of the Grand Alliance gathered in front of the palace.
Irrek emerged from the armory in new armor.
Serdok, Tailen, and Ache followed behind him.
They walked up the steps of the palace and faced the crowd.
Irrek: Fellow citizens of the Grand Alliance! Much has happened in these past days. Not long ago, we stood divided, and at war with eachother.
We have come so far as to reunite against a common enemy, Arsem, son of Leod of the Grimalkin.
He has fallen to the shadow, and now wreaks havoc upon this land. Demons raid our villages. Undead rise from the graves. Our numbers are growing smaller.
That is why we now need to face our enemy! They march upon our lands as we speak, thirsty for blood. I say we quench their thirst with their own blood!
The crowd began to cheer...
Suddenly, a bright light began to shine in the street.
Two figures appeared in the light.
Leod and Mirus began to walk forward.
The crowd split, full of amazement and confusion.
They stood before Irrek, who dropped his sword and sheild and began to walk forward.
Irrek: How... how is this possible? I thought you were dead.
Ache: Leod? But, I saw you die. Arsem killed you.
Leod: My dear boy, why do you only focus on the earthly things? Mirus and I have been granted second life. We were killed, protecting the light and fighting the shadow. We were given the oppurtunity to become gaurdians.
Mirus: Yes, my son. Gaurdians watch over those they died to protect. We have been given wondrous powers. I have been watching the Grimalkin, until they fell. I then began watching you, my son. When your life was in peril at the southern pass, Leod and I saved you, to continue your fight. I am so proud of you.
Irrek: Thank you father. Are you here to aid us now?
Mirus: That is why I have come.
Soldiers! The time has come to put an end to the demons! To war!
The crowd began to scream and cheer.
They marched to meet Arsem and Azhir.
Quick FYI: Ache will have different armor in the next chapter due to a mix up. I decided to change it after I took the pictures.
A popular movie maker said once in an interview: "If people of today see an old man falling from a cliff, everybody thinks about Gandalf but nobody knows that this image was originally taken from an old greek tale."
There're nowhere more stereotypes than in classic fantasy stories. LOTR was not the first and not the last one.
