Eden

There once was a kingdom known as Eden, so vast and beautiful that its majestic forests and gardens rivaled the beauty of even Linphea. But whereas Linphea did not allow any type of technology the people of Eden were free to use it as long as it was beneficial to Eden and in no way harmful to the plants and animals that resided there. With the combination of technology and nature Eden was awash with floating islands of immense gardens and forestry some even had rivers that would flow to the lower islands underneath creating stunning giant waterfalls.

Eden was a peaceful place. Ruled by King Adonis he was a tall broad shouldered man with golden locks that reached just below his chin. His Queen was Lydia a nature fairy fair skinned with long flowing midnight black locks that almost reached her ankle, along with their daughter Princess Calisto who was a water fairy. She was fair skinned as well with pale yellow hair. They were respected by all of their subjects. Unfortunately the happy times would not last for the Ancestral Witches were making their way across the magic dimension destroying everything in a quest to obtain the dragon flame.

They came fast and swift flashes of lightning adorned the sky as dark rain fell to the land below the witches sent their monsters to attack. The warriors and fairies of Eden met the witches head on fighting to defend the kingdom from these evil three. King Adonis and Queen Lydia fought alongside their warriors, but due to the dark magic filled rain it slowly drained Queen Lydia of her power. Since she was a nature fairy she felt everything that happened to the plants and when they were in pain or destroyed in the battle it weakened her.

“Father take mother and help the civilian’s to evacuate.” Calisto said while blasting away a monster.

“I will not leave you here to fight these creatures on your own.” He said.

“Nor will I.” Queen Lydia replied.

“I understand you want to protect me, but I am the guardian fairy of Eden it’s my duty to defend it and I’m not alone there are soldiers here to help me. Besides mother won’t be able to last much longer with the land under siege please get her to safety.”

“I hate to admit it my love but she is right.” The king agreed as he slashed away an enemy with his sword.

“I can fight through this pain I refuse to leave my daughter.” The queen argued while sending vines of ivy to trap monsters so the soldiers could destroy them.

“Mother please be reasonable I can’t fully focus on the battle if I’m worried about you.” Calisto pleaded.

“You are right my sweet Calisto I would only be a burden as the time passed.” She agreed sadly.

“Come my love let us help our subjects escape the witch’s wrath. Calisto please be careful and return to us. “King Adonis said.

“I’ll do my best father.” She said and hugged her parents.

King Adonis returned once he had helped as many of his subjects escape as he could. What awaited him on his return was a horrible sight. The once green lush gardens were now a fiery ash. The beautiful columns that adorned the gardens were now scorched Stoney ruins. The worst of it were the bodies that littered the ground of fallen warriors and fairies who stayed to fight off the witches. He frantically searched the sea of bodies until he found whom he was searching for the body of Calisto. He dropped to his knees and cradled the body of his daughter and screamed out his agony to the heavens until his voice gave out.

When all the emotion seeped out of him and it seemed he had no energy left to go on he picked up the lifeless body of daughter and carried her to burnt up willow tree that lay next to what used to be a stream and now was just an empty crevice. He set her down gently and began digging a hole. This was the same spot where she had earned her charmix by confessing to the fact that she didn’t want an arranged marriage and he admired her courage for telling him so, even though the man he had chosen in his opinion was perfect for her. But he respected her wishes and decided that she could marry someone of her choosing. Coincidently it was also the place where she had gained her enchantix powers. She had sacrificed herself to save her mother from a group of giant water serpents.

A gasp was heard from behind him as he finished digging the hole. He turned and Lydia was there tears swimming in her eyes as she vigorously shook her head in disbelief. Adonis held his wife as she cried. Once she had gotten a better hold on her emotions they went about the task of burying their daughter. Using what was left of her magic Lydia created a purple water lily and laid it on her chest. Water lilies were Calisto’s favorite. They had a moment of silence and said a final goodbye to their beloved daughter and went to join the rest of their subjects in refuge. Taking one last look at his charred kingdom Adonis vowed then and there that he would destroy the witches and return to Eden and restore his garden paradise to its former glory by any means necessary.
