A World of Warcraft Story~

Chapter 00 - Prologue

Cold...

It was cold in the area of Dragonblight, but instead of the usual cold of the snow, the empty chill from Death and Decay could be felt.

Scourge.

They had left a trail of death. There, where you could once smell the scent of sweet flowers, now crept the smell of blood and rotting flesh into your nostrils. Nothing was saved, not the flowers, nor the plants or any living creature. Not even the snow. It was clear from the muddy path which way they had gone.

"This looks truly horrific", a female Orc spoke. "So it has begun."

"Sadly, yes. It seems like he has started gathering his army of Death" replied a fierce Troll.

The Horde continued to stare at the enormous ravage the Scourge had left. The army that had passed was massive. The Lich King was growing in strength and they had to fight against his powers.

A small Blood Elf woman stood in the front line. Even though she looked tiny and tender, she actually was a proud and courageous warrior, standing firm on her feet. But right now she, too, looked in front of her with visible horror spelled on her face. Then she turned her head to watch the Tauren next to her, who looked more miserable than anyone else.

"Mani?"

The Tauren flinched, then looked at her with big eyes. "Vixen, how… I didn't know… that he had gathered this many… Do you think there is any chance-"

"I don't know, Mani…", Vixen quickly interrupted. She couldn't look him in the eyes, knowing the answer was on her face. Of course nobody on their course would have survived. But she could see from the look on his face that, somehow, he had hope. "Why don't we go to her place?", Vixen suggested.

Without an answer Manitti transformed into a bird and slowly flew away. Vixen quickly discussed his sudden disappearance with the others in the front line and then followed the tauren-druid on her mighty steed. They would be able to get away if there were still some Scourge left.

He was afraid of what he would discover there.Her place was ruined as well. The corpses of drown and killed animals floated in the big lake. The trees were black from the ash. Manitti landed here and called her name. But there was no response. The Frost Nymph was gone, or she was dead like all the others. "Impossible", Manitti whispered. But if she was gone, had she taken the child with her? Was she safe, or was she dead? "She swore an oath with me…"

"And she did keep that oath."Manitti hadn't heard Vixen arrive behind him."Look there, in the middle of the lake."

There, in the middle of the lake, drifted an ice block, glittering from the blood. Inside lay the frozen body of a child.

kwilliams: I am an avid reader, and I do mean AVID and few indie authors capture my attention the way you have. I absolutely fell in love with these characters and their story.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly.

They should have different names a...

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie.
