~O~O~O~Kieran walked back to the entrance. Bloom was still standing on where she was before while Lucian was at the other side, sitting with his hand on his stomach."That was terrible, Ran," Lucian groaned. "You almost killed me on that quake."Kieran just smiled. He stopped beside Bloom and said, "go easy on her."Chloe gave him a lopsided smile. "I can't promise that." Chloe entered the arena, the crowds began to cheer louder than before.The whole field was destroyed. There were big craters all over the area, sparking wires that were beneath the arena. These two sure went overboard."Winner versus Winner. Who will step up to face our Challenger for Two Years!" Teacher Eric announced. Chloe sighed. He is really enjoying this."You may begin," Master Xeinmi's bored voice cut of Teacher Eric's blabbers.Chloe looked at Barbie through her hood. Barbie's inner core was still calm and concentrated. It was untouched even if she had already emitted large amount
CHLOE woke up at the chamber inside the Krystalline Palace where she was forced to stay after the Selection tournament. She stood up and walked out of her room and saw Tara Jōn standing at her door, yawning. Chloe sighed."You could have rested, Tara," she stated.The woman looked at her with sleep-deprived eyes. "I sleep only at day."Chloe began to walk away from the room, Tara following her. "But you should be awake at daytime."The pink-haired woman raised one eyebrow. "Then, I have no time to rest. That's no problem of yours, you know?"Chloe only shakes her head. Tara eased up on her ever since Prince Ciaran assigned her as Chloe's company. He didn't want her to be alone even at her room."Did Drake and Vivien found traces of Marjien?" Chloe asked as they turned in a corner, Tara leading her."Unfortunately, no. They arrived about half an hour ago, saying that Marjien's traces always end up at the foot of the Ahn Mountain Ranges."After the Select
The moment Jared Dale went to find Blaise and Barbie, Jucel decided to set out to the dungeon alone. Lucian was protesting but she insisted. Chloe allowed her to go only if Drake go along with her. Jucel didn't have any choice.A soldier met with them at the foot of the stairs in the dungeon. Seeing the path towards where Jucel was held once made her grimaced. Upon seeing Drake, the soldier bowed his head slightly."How's the interrogation going?" Drake asked in his hoarse tone."We've been trying to pry some information out of them but they're tough and wouldn't yield to any kind of torture we gave them," he told Jared.The soldier excused himself as another soldier called for him. Drake and Jucel moved to the depth of the dungeon and stopped at the door."Do you want me to get the equipments?" Drake asked."I don't need it. I only came talk to them, not gain some information. It's someone else's duty," Jucel replied. Drake noticed that she didn't hold
Tonight was their departure to Markus City. Late afternoon, the six gathered around the living room, in front of the fireplace, and waited for the night to come. The weather dropped as winter started and the walls of their house were icy cold by touch.Zabdiel put down the stick that he used to poke at the woods by the fire and sighed. "It's going to be okay, Zab," Barbie assured her brother.He shook his head and ran a hand through his hair. Jared and Blaise, who turned out to be the copy of Prince Ciaran and the actual Prince Zephrain, were at the palace along with Chloe. There's going to be war. And nobody wanted to lose someone they're closed to.Suddenly, there was a banging on the door and they all jolted in their seats in surprise. They all looked at each other. Zabdiel stood up and went to open the door.Jucel went back to poking the woods in the fire that died down a bit. Her eyebrows scrunched when the fire died down further, the cold atmosphere see
Kieran Lornn stood in front of the smirking Kirsten Zūng. The latter was just staring at him amusingly as he stabbed his spear on the ground, and reached for the cloth in his eyes."Showing off your blindness, huh?" Kirsten taunted.Kieran's voice was firm as he answered her. "The Earth element of the Lornn Tribe has four levels. The fourth being forbidden." He let the cloth around his eyes drop on the ground. "I've reached the fourth and had to sacrifice my sight."Magic energy surged from Kieran's body, making Kirsten step back in wonder. He opened his eyes, the white blind irises began to glow.Kirsten's smirk was replaced with maniacal laughter. She grinned evilly as her eyes gazed at Kieran with bloodlust in it. "You're not going to win, boy."Kieran took hold of his spear. "I know. But as long as my friends get away, Kieran Lornn will fight you," he said.Kirsten cackled as she switched her hold on her staff and attacked. Kieran tilted his head and the ground
He was strolling around for a cool afternoon, not in his usual and typical self. He was known for going out, hanging out with girls, and then going home drunk, dumping the girls along his play boy way when he's not in a guard duty for Prince Ciaran. He's like that, he had to admit it. The playboy, the heartbreaker. But now he went out not to hang out and dump girls.Drake Lornn wanted to clear his mind before their real mission. He might always be having fun but it all always has an end so he could concentrate. There are girls around who wanted to gain his attention now, he knew that. Girls are always readable.The only girls who aren't are Princess Zillah's lady guard, Vivien Li, and Theo's sister and co-guard, Tara Jōn, and though he hated to admit it, the small and petite woman Barbie Lewelyn.He sighed and looked around then smacked his forehead with his palm.Great, Drake... you're now walking towards their residence's backyard. He took a dee
Queen Elisa stood at the first steps outside the palace. She was covered with wool coat to prevent the freezing cold from seeping through her body. Her white hair cascaded on her shoulder and her crown sat atop her head.The soldiers are already positioned, all of them sitting on the Pegasi - another type of horses used for battle. These horses have the wings of eagles they can fly the soldiers towards Markus and pass the Dark Forest. Because of the vulnerability of the Pegasi under the sun, they had to wait under the weather was colder so they can use them for transportation.Chloe was sitting on her own Pegasi, a jet black horse with stronger, wider wings than the others. Her golden eyes looked up at the Queen and found her staring. Chloe just nodded at her which she answered a small smile and a nod. The Blood Star then took hold of the reins and bounded to the front lines.Jucel and Jared went out of the palace. Jared still looked emotionless as before. Ever since Jucel'
The Krysts began to follow Ciaran and Zephrain's instructions. The Travis Tribe and the other tribes from the Markus City vowed to help in the war against the Great Witch. They prepared traps everywhere. It took them a whole day to prepare.Lucian and his friends decided to get over the grief they had over Kieran. With Jucel and Celine's efforts, Zabdiel's consciousness came back.Upon hearing about Kieran's death, Zabdiel didn't know what to say. He started to blame himself, but there's no denying that no one wanted to lose Kieran Lornn."Where's his body?""Chloe said he's at the palace back in Vestia," Lucian murmured.Zabdiel could only nod his head and then he went back to his trance, mourning for his older friend. He clenched his jaws and his fists. Zabdiel vowed that he will seek revenge on Kieran's death.Three days came and no Kirsten Zūng appeared. Celine brought Lucian, Barbie, Zabdiel, and Clive to a storage room."What are we doing here?" Clive aske
