His tired, grey eyes teared up as he told her that their kingdom was falling, that there will be no survival if they stayed, even though they were so far away from the sun, they were going to die without it. And the distant ball of fire was going to die.
The king held his daughter and told her to be free, to live, and to find somewhere new to call home.
They were Plutonians; an ancient civilisation, they were cold hearted, blue blooded, and weak from living so far away of the sun. They were very weak and fragile people but proud, he trusted that she could survive, he didn’t care if his kingdom fell and the planet died, he just wanted her to survive.
They spoke in Plutonian. “Are you sure father? Can’t you come with me?” Lapis asked looking up at her father as he got ready to send her off.
“I’m sure, I can’t come with you, I’m too weak and old and I would only slow you, you need to live,” He said as he held his daughter in his arms for the last time.
“B-but, dad, I don’t want to be alone, everyones already left Pluto, we don’t even know where any of them are going, they might not even be going to the planet I’m going.”
“My dear Lapis don’t forget after a year there The Other will come. You won’t be alone for long.” He looked into her grey eyes and whispered his last words to her, “Lapis, you can live, and you can save another world as this world cannot be saved… most of my people have already evacuated, or have accepted their fate, and now it’s your turn,” His voice cracked and then he slowly pulled away. Tears in his old grey eyes, as he gave her a reassuring smile just before planting a tender kiss on her forehead.
Slowly chanting in old Plutonian, her dull, grey eyes started to glow brighter and brighter, her black tattoos glowed white and he said, “goodbye my darling, goodbye Lapis, goodbye my only daughter,” he blew her a kiss and she disappeared. Through space and time, she was being transported many light-years away to another galaxy, far, far away. This sun was dying and she needed to find a new sun to sustain life.
As she travelled through a portal into many unknown galaxies, she saw many peculia things, dragons flying, people living, children laughing, towns growing, knights fighting, kingdoms rising and magic soaring.
And then everything went black.
