The Young One & The Lands: Cipher of Ciphers

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

It had been extremely, terribly — inconceivably long that the withering city laboured under the enslavement of a grim, tyrannical winter. Though in despair were its weary, spiritless, nigh-frozen folk, they were not utterly forsaken. For out of nowhere there suddenly came a warm, bright, unexpected dawn and delivered their every child, abode and house. But could this much-welcomed light be their very hope, or their even grimmer, graver — crueler destruction?

A Poem

In the land of lands lived a parentless boy,

In the secret of secrets howled a dustful tomb,

Over the sea of seas,

And wave of waves,

Crouched a great city.

Of where its dwellers indifferent and incurious.

Of where its tavernees imbibing and cavorting.

Oh, why did they not save

The cipher of ciphers?


Woe was the codex of the codices,

Woe was the folk of the old city,

For their destruction drew apace,

Their perishment approaching,

Their torment bone-splitting.

Oh, why did they not save

The cipher of ciphers?


End were their days,

Dead their children,

Ruination their city,

Perishes every little single life

Of the land

And the woods


If they could not

Find

And interpret

The last

Cipher

Of ciphers.

❣︵۵нαɴα۵︵❣: I really enjoy this story so far. It has been uncomfortable to read at times but that's what makes it great! It's not your typical "Twilight" story where all the men are dreamy and out of this world romantic. No, this is about beasts being... Well, beasts! But learning to tap into the more human ...

Helena: Yay, it's such a delight when you finish a chapter, can't wait till you write one more!!
