A Letter addressed to queen Hada IV the ruler of Atriabnna and all who inhabit it, from man to the high Elves and to the Fairies, and chancellor of the Royal city Canta-

“The Earth, the skies, and the kingdoms I don’t care for them, what is the use of such things to me, my heart right now does what it wants and what I want right now is to protect those dearest to me, you can keep the kingdoms”- ???????

The two men dressed in red cloaks strolled through what use to be a village but was now reduced to an endless fireball blaze entrapped in black smog, from afar it resembled the aftermath of a gruesome war. “Sheesh, it’s pretty hot around here don’t you think” said one of the men as he smirked and nudged his counterpart “is this really the time for that” responded the other man who intently scanned around the incinerated area, “well it looks like there’s no sign of survivors human or non-human, but wow this is incredible to think Eros could close the gate and only occur this amount of damage” the other man suddenly looked at his partner in disbelief, “you call all this a petty amount? You’re sick outlook on things never fails to scare me Lance……Wait did you hear that” he said, as the two men held their tongues in silence they could hear feint sounds of cries coming from one of the houses that was reduced to rubble, the two men slowly approached the smoking rubble and the sound grew louder. “Lance your up “ the man said , the man he was referring to as lance lifted his two hands and spoke” gravitas urna” a gust of air suddenly came forth from the man’s palms and ripped into the rubble sending the rocks scattering aside, the man quickly rushed into the rubble, “Tobi….Tobi what’s in there…” Lance asked nervously. lance approached the hole that his partner ventured into and as he looked down inside he saw his partner carrying a baby in his arms, the toddler clutched on to the clothes of Tobi, blood was drenched all over the toddlers naked body but the baby didn’t cry, his blue eyes just gazed in wonder at the men around him, “Tobi look….his...his-arm,” I know lance, I know……it looks like the arm of a demon spoke Tobi, as the two men gazed at one another in shock. The two men stood dumbfounded as they stared at the toddlers cursed arm, the arm had a disfigured appearance and bore a reddish dark colour to it like glaciered blood. Meanwhile the inferno surrounding them begun to slowly close in, “Tobi it’s time we left this place we’ve already found the Key so let’s head back to the City” but Tobi didn’t move a muscle he simply stood like a statue and gazed at the infant. “TOBI!  Wake up” Lance screamed which woke Tobi up from his Trance “yeah your right let’s move out” he replied, the two hooded men scurried out of the burning village and stood upon the hill afar and watched as the flames engulfed the village leaving no shred of existence remaining. The two men strolled into the night on horseback with the child in their company, they rode for about 4 hours before coming across a certain farm. “Phew, we finally made it Lance “Tobi Said in relief, the two men then rode down from atop the hillsides path to the farm grounds. “ Tobi are you sure this is the place “asked Lance with concern, “err yup this is the place, the farm west from the wasteland is what I was told and this is it….. I think”. The two of them looked for the entrance but could only find wooden barn doors and open stables, “wait, what’s that little building over there” said Lance who spotted a nearby cottage, the two of them then went to investigate. When they finally stood outside the small cottage they noticed a red rusty old looking tractor parked out the front, “seriously someone actually lives here” Lance exclaimed, “Ha-ha that sort of reaction is something I’d expect from someone whose use to the lavishness of living in royalty their whole life” Tobi replied, “well whatever you call me It doesn’t change the fact this place looks dreadful I mean look at that vehicle the doors are barely staying on and most of the back is missing” whilst Lance continued to prod at the presentation of the cottage the lights from the inside suddenly came on , “ oh shoot now you’ve done it  you see what happens when you start yapping on “ Tobi quickly jumped off his stead , he ripped a piece of his cloak apart and wrapped the naked infant in it, he then placed the boy at the front of the door and quickly mounted his horse. The red cottage door slowly creaked open and an old man in his night gown and hat came shooting out the door holding a hunting rifle, “WHO GOES THERE” he shouted “BEST MAKE YOURSELVES KNOWN IM ARMED” he added, then shooting right behind him was a small old lady fidgeting with her glasses, “oh keep it down will ya, your gunna wake up all the neighbors” she said to the man “NEIGHBOURSSS? What in heavens are you on about women, look around ya there’s not a single house within miles of here, talking to me about neighbors, madness must not be too far away by the looks of it ….talking about madness, by the way when’s it your birthday again” as the old man continued his loud the old lady peered outside and spotted the little infant sitting on the floor. “Oh heavens Johnathan look at that…. It’s a little baby boy” she quickly approached the boy and held him up into the air, “look at his eyes he’s such a pretty thing isn’t he” she said “WAIT WHAT... what do you think you’re doing women that child might be a trap, thee ole cattle rustlers might be tryna lure as in …. Quickly chuck him into the bushes” the old man yelped, “Are you out of your senile mind …..Cattle rustlers? And I’m the crazy one am I, but look there doesn’t seem to be any sign from anyone, I think he was purposely left here john”. The old man lowered his rifle and proceeded back into his home, “oh heavens do what you gotta do women I’m off to bed” he said, he then walked off scratching his backside. The old lady continued to stare at the blue eyed child who gazed back into her eyes , “ the gods have answered my prayers and favored me in my later years” she said to the boy “ and I’m guessing you don’t have a name do ya…..mmmm that’s alright though , starting from today your name shall be ...” the old lady paused for a few moments and gazed above into the moonlight sky, she saw a shooting star shining across the sky and said “Jyro, Jyro Thomas”. The red cottage door closed and little Jyro was carried inside, meanwhile the two men riding their horses stood from afar and watched on,“ do you think he’ll be ok Tobi… I mean he has that arm and”, “shhh try not to worry so much Lance these people were chosen for a reason so I’m sure he’ll be fine, anyhow will be seeing him soon I hope…. I mean 10 years isn’t a long time is it now”, the two men then left the farm and rode away into the darkened valley.
