Prologue

There was once a beautiful kingdom in our world, the biggest ever known. It was built and ruled by the Draco’s for over four thousand years. The kingdom lived in peace until the youngest of the Draco line King Fredrick was thirty-two years old. On that frightful night his Queen died in child birth of twin sons.The evil Duke Maddox of Anglesire, invaded the palace with 3,000 soldiers, leaving what the King knew was the bulk of his force at home. A stupid move knowing the king had at least 4,000 soldiers and knights in and around the palace at all times. Due to the fact that the Duke, had openly threatened the king for the last year, with open war if the King did not abdicate his throne to him. The King summoned his most loyal advisor and trusted Knight, Sir Vincent and his chief healer and sorceress Mattaline into his throne room for a private council. When Sir Vincent entered the throne room he bowed respectfully and said “My Lord, you summoned me.”

“Yes, but we shall wait for Mattie to arrive” replied the King. Sir Vincent was a very attractive and muscular young looking knight, for his 39 years of age, he looked like a teenager, with his long black hair and his child-like face. As he waited for Mattie to arrive, he looked down at the baby princes asleep in the cradles, noticing that they looked identical except each one had a different birth mark on his left hands. One had a shape that resembled a battle axe. In which is the mark of a warrior and his name was Edmund. The other baby had a Star shape mark which is the mark of a sorcerer or sorceress, and that baby’s name is Richard. Edmund was the oldest by two minutes.

Just then Mattie burst through into the throne room, screaming “My Lord, Maddox is coming, he has stormed the castle.”

“Time is running out, now listen both of you. You both are my most loyal subjects and beyond that my best friends. I appreciate that with all my heart” the King cleared his throat before continuing. “Now to the point, Sir Vincent if anything happens to me, I want your word that you will protect my boys until they are old enough to take their rightful place as rulers of Endor.”

“You have my word your majesty,” promised Sir Vincent. “Good and if something happens to Sir Vincent,” the King paused, “Then Mattie, I want you to take the boys and never tell them about this life or their family, do you understand?” asked the King

“Yes Sir,” replied Mattie, sheepishly because she did not understand why he felt this way.

Just then they heard the sound of fighting coming from down the corridor. “Mattie, watch the boys” ordered the King as he and Sir Vincent ran out of the throne room, drawing their swords. Once out into the corridor King Fredrick heard a voice he knew well yelling, “SO, THE COWARD KING HAS FINALLY DECIDED TO FIGHT ME.”

“Prepare to die Maddox” replied the King coolly.

“I don’t think so,” answered Maddox with a devilish laugh. As he and the King advanced on each other. Their swords clashed together. “I’ll kill you and your children and then I will be king” yelled Maddox with an evil chuckle, as two of the Dukes soldiers attacked out of thin air and stabbed the King in the back.

Before the King collapsed he yelled “Vincent, remember your promise my old friend,” Then Sir Vincent, looking pale and shock from seeing his oldest and dearest friend die turned and ran into the throne room and slammed and bolted the doors shut and yelled “MATTY, RUN, FLEE, HIDE.”

“But where’s the King?” exclaimed Mattie in shock from hearing Sir Vincent yell at her because it is something he had never done in the almost forty years that she has known him.

“He is dead” retorted Sir Vincent as the fighting outside the room raged on. Vincent gathered up the two infants in their blankets and briskly walked over to the tapestry of a huge gold dragon behind the Kings throne and moved it aside, to reveal a hidden door to a secret passageway that lead to the lake, where the King always kept horses, food, weapons and supplies waiting in case of an emergency.

With-in minutes, Sir Vincent was riding west, far away from Endor. Meanwhile Duke Maddox, and what was left of his invasion force, was forced to retreat due to the King’s Calvary that was hiding and waiting for the last possible minute for the enemy to lower their guard long enough to rush the castle unseen to reseize it. A little while later, the King awoke in his own bed yelling Sir Vincent’s name.

“My Lord, Sir Vincent is dead,” exclaimed a knight who was standing guard.

“Mattie, where’s Mattie” asked the King.

“We believe her to be dead as well, Sir,” replied the Knight.

“My sons” asked the King sadly.

“Missing, my Lord” replied the knight.

Just then another knight rushed in and bowed to the King and spoke “My Lord, I went down the escape passage and found three horses and all of the supplies and the store of weapons are all gone.”

“My God” exclaimed the King with hope in his voice.

“What is it my Lord?” asked the knight.

“Sir Vincent is fulfilling his promise to me, thank God” replied the King weakly as he slipped back in unconsciousness.

And The War raged on…………
