Weary expressions decorated the faces of our gallant heroes. The source of their fatigue being the long and arduous journey they traveled across Hyrule and into Labrynna; where they would ultimately find no rest, instead facing the most perilous engagement they had seen as of yet.
Previously an entire night they set around a table, adorned with maps and collective missives about Eleazar, who had been sighted entering Labrynna in the direction of Symmetry Village. The garrison's under King Perseus had bestowed this crucial information, and neither the Heroes or Perseus himself dismissed the oppourtunity to right the wrong they made in Castle Town; whats more, is that if he was attacking the city, then citizens of the state would surely be in peril.
Taking no time, Kura along with her retainers and a few other captains in the Heroes took half of a regiment and set out to Symmetry village immediately. The plan was to send two parties, one to arrive and supply help to anyone while safely remaining undercover, and another to come and confront Eleazar and his men as soon as a signal was given, --a flag to signify that it was safe.
This was the plan.
Upon entering the village boundary, the amount of chaos that ensued was frightening, --as homes burned, and people screamed. Almost immediately did their strategy get thrown out the window as Kura's desire to help the residents who cried for it took hold of her heart. Quickly taking into account the low threat of mercenaries in the surrounding area, she had Garrett and Mal take up arms. But what few in number suddenly grew, and not even their whole regiment could hold back the ambush that awaited them.
Despite the struggle, the princess still found herself ensnared, looking up into the piercing eyes of Eleazar's lackey, the twili that went by the title Raven. The weight of the world was pressed onto Kura's shoulders, as her obstinate headstrong actions had landed them all in this situation.
Time passed slowly in the false king's prison, and they grew weaker by the hour. One by one, each member was dragged from behind bars, only to never return. Faint echoes of screams reached their ears, a warning to the men and women that they were all going to die. Promptly their scenario turned them on one another as they begged not to be taken, pushing one another into the searching arms of the guard, even going as far to harm one another in the process.
In the corner she could only hide and cry as Garrett and Mal did their best to provide some amount of succor, but the imminent thought of death still rested in her mind, taunting her as she remained in Eleazar's custody.
Unbeknownst to the young princess in the depths of the mayor's mansion, the fluid motion of ink transferred unto the rough paper, giving specific details to a few awaiting individuals.

[music]http://k003.kiwi6.com/hotlink/9v7glb6bp8/Naruto_Shippuuden_Movie_OST_-_31_-_God_s_will.mp3[/music] To the King And the banished prince,
The Duke of Symmetry City is dead, and so are the many troops you sent who did not desert your cause.
As you may have guessed by the gift I left with this letter, I have captured every figurehead you sent on behalf of your cause.
I killed all but four. You have 24 hours to arrive unarmed or they will die. Only the king, the banished prince, and the baseborn may come.
The fear travelled in Artemis's veins but never made it to his facial muscles or skin. His complexion remained pale and matt, his eyes as steady as if it were any normal day. He let out an understated sigh and turned to leave, showing he wasn't afraid to turn his back.
They were off for Symmetry City.
Flanked to King Perseus's horse, the three leaders - he, Perseus, and Gael all set forth to meet with the Zoran Tyrant. They didn't speak for most of the journey, all dealing with their own anxieties as they drew closer to their destination.
Upon their arrival, their faces would become sheer to the destruction that obliterated most of the city. So many dead, and many more injured. Buildings had been taken out, fires had started--Artemis had never seen anything like it. While civilians cried out for help from their King, they had to press on. Their loved ones depended on their timely arrival. They entered the courtyard of the Duke's Manor only to see bodies strewn across the lawn like decorations.
He couldn't believe his eyes. He didn’t want to anyway. He never saw something like that even in his worst nightmares. But that was only because his brain always woke him up before such a horrific image covered his mind. And now he was seeing something his eyes won't ever be able to erase.
The adrenalin flew over his veins like a carp through the river, but he couldn’t move a single muscle, not even to scream. The absolute horror completely paralyzed him, and the more he thought about run away, or simply moving a bit, the more he felt discouraged and utterly terrified.
He didn’t remember being that scared in his life. And that was just the beginning. That idea only made it worse. If that was even possible.
His eyes scanned over the entire area, praying he wouldn't find Kura's body, and he thought he might vomit from the stench. He turned to King Perseus and Gael, unsure if he would be able to take command.
"...We can't try anything. We need to get them out as fast as possible."

He could barely form words. All he knew was that they had to get there with haste. On their horses, they rode south, testing the limits of their speed. [break][break] And they ran, like the winter breeze colliding into inanimate objects and crashing waves hitting the shore line. Like eagles soaring across indigo skies and a herd of cheetahs racing through verdant meadows. Percy's long, ashen coloured locks whipped back and forth behind him like a fiery tale as he flung the reigns hard, trying to force them to move quicker. [break][break] All he knew was that she was in danger. In the silent grip of panic, he felt as though his brain had been pickled in brine. Despite his static position on the back of his steed, he was out of breath; shaken and stirred from whatever scenarios played out. Eleazar was ruthless--but he'd be damned if he took her. [break][break] With billowing smoke and fires that drained the city of life, he prayed they weren't too late. His own people screamed for his mercy, but his sight was set on the manor. He was no king--not right now. [break][break] The lawn strewn with corpses made Perseus breathe out coarsely. They lie like dolls over the grass, limbs at awkward angles and heads held in such a way that they cannot be sleeping. [break][break] To Artemis's words, Percy nodded before dismounting, looking to the double doors cautiously. "We leave our weapons with our horses. We cannot take the chance. Understood? We follow my lead." [break][break] Hands pressing into the wooden entryway, he shifted his weight forward, allowing himself inside before looking around carefully. Darkness came like the thick velvet curtains of the windows. It was as if the daytime had been one part of a play and the rest was to come after this intermission of night. Perseus let his eyes wander the furniture. [break][break] A huge mahogany table took up most of the vast space the dark, romantic room offered, left without a tablecloth and daring guests to ruin the perfectly varnished shine. Two tall, silver candelabras commanded attention from the center of the table, holding smooth white candles whose wax never dripped. [break][break] The shadow of a man sat at the end of the table, and Perseus immediatley felt a fire within his chest burning. "Show your face."

It was all going horribly wrong. His intention was to give assistance to King Perseus and the Heroes in attempt to subdue his brother. Back home, the council faulted him at every turn, and this mission was to be the end of that, -- the start to his proper reign. However it was a failure, their plan a folly as Eleazar now had them by the throat. A captured princess; not only dear to Zelda and Artemis, but also Perseus. A key element, that seemed to fall so easily into his brothers grasp.
As per instruction, Perseus, Artemis and himself rode for Symmatry village. Stallions carried them across the hills and grassy plains, crossing the distance into Labrynna where they arrived to the unjustly scene. It made him sick, to think that one man could cause so much chaos and pain, and he considered what he would feel if this was his people, --his home. Glances shifted between Perseus and Artemis, realizing that they had been experiencing such tragedy since the beginning of Eleazar's torment.
He needed to be stopped.
Fingers tightened around his blade once more, the desire to carry it being surpassed as he left it strapped to his saddle. He obeyed his King's order, recognizing the desperation and determination in his voice. Just what was this princess to him? Would they really put their own lives on the line for her a a few servants?
Moving behind them, gleaming eyes watched the carnage as they traveled up to the mansion. All he could think of was the idea that he would soon meet a similar fate upon his people, and that scared him. Much more than facing the beast himself as they crossed the threshold.
His soul was steeled; his mind set on doing whatever it would take to prevent this future for his kingdom.
[music]http://k003.kiwi6.com/hotlink/iwva1pnbld/Naruto_Shippuden_OST_1_-_Track_28_-_Shippuu_Kumikyoku_Hurricane_Suite_.mp3[/music] Chair turned from the guests, the young king felt a smile creep upon his face as the King demanded he show himself to the party. "And what gives you the audacity to make orders to me?" Eleazar rose a brow, foot kicking back against the wooden floor before the chair then twirled to face them. Elbows leaning in against the hardwood table, his chin pressed into his palms, balancing on the weight of his arms.
"I'm glad to see you arrived in such a timely manner! I was getting quite bored, and well... when I get bored I tend to..." he narrowed his eyes, gazing upon the knife which had been perfectly centered on the table. "Never mind, let's chat then, shall we?"
He motioned for the three of them to take their seats at the table before looking down upon the parchment that he had piled in front of him. "It's quite messy, changing ownership of land, isn't it? Perhaps you will heed my warnings the next time you attempt to take my life in my own home."
His eyes pierced into Percy's, watching them callously before then turning to Gael. "I'm sure mother will be thrilled to know that her baby boy is coming home. I plan to visit quite soon, really. Once I work out a few kinks with the Zoran Princess..."
A smile was frozen over like a facade, making it hard to read what he was truly thinking. He of course, could see the apprehension washed over the young Hylian's face, and he tilted his head carefully. "What's the matter? You wanted to be included, didn't you? The lone prince, sole heir to the throne--at least, that's how it should have been. Then your sister stole the spotlight with her hair of gold and soul so divine..."
"But things don't have to be that way, do they? She's just an ordinary girl now... that throne rightfully belongs to you once more!" Eleazar chuckled. "I mean... once the isle surrenders itself to me... I'll need to establish new rulers if the originals do not swear fealty. Keep that in mind," he winked, looking to the others to carefully watch their expressions.
"Of course... this isn't why your here, now is it? You didn't come to negotiate land or save your precious civilians... no, you came strictly for the girl. In due time, my friends, I will release her as promised. But first, I'd like to know a little bit more about your intentions."

Already, Artemis was stiffened in apprehension to Eleazar's words upon approach. His face shown into the only fog of light in the shadowy room, but his next remark caused his fists to clench tightly, ready to explode.
He had to stay calm.
As Eleazar motioned to the chairs around the table, Artemis took a seat furthest from the tyrant. His anger was boiling, but he had to remain as collected as possible. The Tyrant talked of his messy actions for taking over the city. So many people suffering for a selfish goal.
The Zora knew what he was doing. Saying anything and everything to attempt for the others to slip up. He prayed the others would show the same restraint. He worried most for Percy - his own kingdom in ruins, and the blood of the beast boiling inside. Any amount of tension could cause him to snap. Perhaps the boy knew that.
He averted his gaze, trying to block out the conversation until it as absolutely necessary for him to be involved, but his aversion didn't go unnoticed. Ears perked, he quickly turned to the amber eyed king, his chest filling with ungodly malice.
He was trying to tempt him - the inner struggle he dealt with from the very beginning - but his vigilince and fealty to his sister overcame his determination to succeed. Already, just in her absence he was overwhelmed with the responsibilities. And now his sister was in danger because of it.
He didn't respond, his gaze hardening over the prince. He took a depe breath, their official meaning of audience coming to light.
"What do you mean by intentions?" Artemis snapped. "We didn't come here to foil your plans. You won. You got what you wanted. We just want Kura so we can leave. You have our word."

[attr="class","jartoxlyr"] I would lose everything just for you
[attr="class","jartoxpost"] Immediately, the king halted in his place as the young Zora rhetorted to his command. Chair spun around and now facing the trio, Perseus was presented with the most convoluted set of emotions he ever recalled feeling. Anger, horror, panic - all twisted together in a knot and thrown into the depth of his chest like a heavyweight. [break][break] He made watchful eyes to Artemis, seeing the tyrant test at his patience, but as they began to take their seats, Perseus hesitated for a moment. He wanted nothing more than to tear this man to shreds - but he knew it was not in the best interest of his beloved. He took a deep breath, pulling a chair cornered to Artemis, farther away from Eleazar. Sitting too close would be too dangerous. [break][break] The man then went on to coax the young king on his attempts of assassination, stating that perhaps this wouldn't have happened should he have backed away from his plans. He closed his eyes, trying his hardest to ignore this. [break][break] Stay calm. Don't let him in. Don't let the beast out. [break][break] He went on to taunt the others, attempting to press at each of their buttons, as though this was a game. Should they pass, they get the princess harm free. Should they fail... [break][break] "Artemis!" Perseus immediately intervened with the Prince's words. He turned back to Eleazar anxiously. "Please, your highness, we do not mean to interfere. We are desperate for Kura's safe return. Please." he choked on the last part, finding it hard to put his thoughts to words. [break][break] Perhaps honesty would be their friend in this moment. He turned to the others, wondering if now was the best time to reveal the truth, but perhaps it would save them all. [break][break] "She is to be my wife," Percy admitted desperately. "I never intended for her to come to harm, and I failed her. You can have whatever you want, please just return her safely to us."

Everything in the room was being manipulated by Eleazar. The ambiance of the darkened room, the knife laying perfectly on the table as if it was yearning to be plunged into the heart of anyone that drew to close, and obviously the large table to which he gestured they sit; this was all delicately planned out to his desire, and he played his song. Following the Prince and the King he took a seat as well, not getting to comfortable in case he needed to escape the boundary of the mad man at a moments notice.
Gael could tell that each syllable that left Eleazar's mouth dug deeper and deeper into the chest of these heroes. Perseus already took a fault on himself for the failed assassination, but to not confirm that the chaos in Symmetry city was because of that left Gael with a pit in his stomach. This man wasn't afraid of revenge, to push beyond how he had been wronged.
'Just what would he be willing to do to MY people..'
And speaking of home, Gael's mouth was left agape at the mention of Eleazar's plan. He could only mean to unite the Zora, but would the Princess and Queen really consider letting this tyrant rule over the seas entirely?! That wasn't possible. HE was still Prince, despite the council's disagreements, surely Mother wouldn't welcome him back home. But before he could protest, Eleazar continued to address each one, poking at their weakness and prodding for a response. This is what Perseus had warned them of.
Lips twitched in a tight grimace as he listened, hands shaking in their firm grip as he waited for it to be over.
Artemis spoke, to the Kings dismay, and what followed was alarming beyond all compare. His voice shook over words, the plead he gave almost equivalent to begging. And then, he spilled. He gave Eleazar quite the juicy piece of information, and that left the Zora Prince dumbfounded. 'That is why he was so emotional about the girl...'
Teeth tightened as he stood from his chair, and eyes flashed a blue aura in his fit of rage, "You mean... that all of this... this charade and game we are suffering is all due to your selfish desires?"
Gael had always respected Perseus, but in this light, he came to realize he was no better than his own father. He was not a megalomaniac like Galadhion was said to be, but he was no King in his eyes any longer.
"Your people are dying out there! You turned a blind eye to all of them to rush here to retrieve your precious inamorata!? What King forsakes his own subjects over his own wishes?!! You are not better than your father! You deserve every ounce of this..." he yelled, his sword hand pulling the carbon steel from it's sheath before turning his attention towards Eleazar.
"You...," his lips leaked poisonous spite, "I am not playing your game any longer," he said kicking the chair he once sat in and opening up the area, "If you think you can take my throne from me, you are mistaken. I'm not going to just sit here while you threaten to oppress my people. I won't sit here and take it like these intimidated children! Now COME!"

[attr="class","jartoxlyr"] I would lose everything just for you
[attr="class","jartoxpost"] Perseus's face went pale as the zoran prince stood from his seat. He knew that the others could react negatively to this light, but what did Gael expect? Kura was also Artemis's sister. Would he give Art the same scorn he was receiving now? [break][break] But he dug in deeper, comparing him to his father, and it was exactly what was needed to be said to trigger a negative reaction from the King. [break][break] "Shut up," he said quietly, trying to supress the malice that clutched onto the back of his throat like bile. Eyes shot open, cerulean eyes shifting to an amber glow. "Should Kura die in this forsaken place, we will lose everything! She is a pillar to the Heroes of Hyrule, and whether we like it or not, we're in a damn war now! Of course I care about my people, but until you are a King you have no right to judge and decide how things are to be done!" [break][break] The sword was pulled from Gael's side and immediately the king's eyes grew small. "I thought we agreed unarmed. I THOUGHT WE AGREED TO LEAVE WEAPONS ASIDE! YOU'LL GET US ALL KILLED!" he screeched, hands clutching the table tightly as he tried to suppress his inner rage. Desperately, he turned to Artemis, eyes pleading as he let out a heavy breath. [break][break] "Stop him. Stop him or everyone will die." [break][break] He immediately jumped from the chair and swirled about to corner himself, trying to keep his emotions from overriding his composure. [break][break] It was no use. It was taking over like a drug. He let out a scream in pain, falling to his knees as the claws protruded from his fingernails, eyes transitioning crimson, and ears pulling back like a canine. [break][break] Except for some reason... he could still control himself. He was on high alert. Looking around carefully, hoping and praying Eleazar had not summoned for anything to go differently. Before Artemis would be able to stop the young prince, the king lunged forward, pressing him against the wall. [break][break] "If you go against our wishes, it will be high treason against Labrynna and Hyrule!" Percy growled at Gaelio. "I suggest you think about what you're doing or I will not hesitate to have you thrown out. Just because she has no importance to you does not mean it is your decision to go against our arrangement!"

Perseus had suddenly relayed the true reason behind his concern for Artemis's sister. He hadn't caught on earlier - and he very well could say he had no idea that this was going on.
Why keep this a secret?
Art turned to Perseus in a sudden gaze of dismay, eyeing that they would surely have to have a conversation about this later on. Before they could turn their attention back to the tyrant though, Gael spoke up.
"You mean... that all of this... this charade and game we are suffering is all due to your selfish desires?"
Artemis nearly choked in fear. Face draining of color, he looked to Eleazar to gauge his reaction. His brow had raised, and he looked intrigued by what his brother was stating, as though this were something he was waiting for, as Gael burst out toward Perseus angrily.
"Gael, he knows. Eleazar was planning for this, don't you see? He wants us to turn against each other!" Artemis said quickly, trying to regain Gael's attention.
A sword he had snuck inside caught his gaze as he let out a cry in desperation. For once he was afraid. Afraid for his life, and his sister's. He thought he might burst into tears knowing that everything had been ruined, but was set back as he noticed Perseus's panic.
They had to stay calm. He breathed quickly, nodding to Percy's plea to calming him down. Perseus didn't have long, and he was going to turn if they weren't careful. They'd surely all be killed.
Then, he made his command out of haste - immediately branding him as treasonous. The damage was done, and surely it would not end here should Gael listen. This is what he wanted.
He turned back to Eleazar, "If this is how it has to be, then so be it. Perhaps, we can offer a trade since he seems to not know what he's thinking?"
He couldn't say that he didn't feel guilty for offering Gael for the safe return of his family... but it seemed there would be no other choice, and the ties Gael held to them both had been tarnished.
Goodness, this was too good to overlook. Surprise had washed over the young King's face as he watched the three argue and beg for it to end. He almost let out a chuckle at the thought, but immediately brought notice to the sword upon Gael's person.
"You disobeyed me," he said, almost with a hint of surprise that he'd do such a thing.
Now Perseus was on a rampage, ready to turn, and he'd surely try to attack Eleazar if he had no control. Artemis, on the other hand, looked as though he was going to piss his pants and cry like a child... at least until he recollected himself and turned to the tyrant with an unwittingly sly remark.
There was almost a hint of delight in his voice when he spoke, and he was suddenly offering his friend in return for his sister, safe and sound.
Now, he had to laugh.
Clapping his hands slowly, the room went to silence as he stood up from his seat without a word. A smile, ear to ear, curled upon his face as he watched his brother without a blink of an eye.
He tried to stifle a laugh behind his lips, before exposing his teeth and chuckling a bit harder and shaking his head. "Well, this was quite a show, you three! However... I'll have no trade for his life. How about we play a little game? One of you must die, and the other two walk away with your sister alive?"
This would be fun to watch from the backseat. Letting them decide who would die, all to save an unimportant princess. Would they do it in cold blood? Or would they struggle the whole way?
Post by Kura Hyrule † on Mar 23, 2018 12:27:55 GMT -5
The room was spinning, his head throbbing and instinct driving him to fight or to flee. Did Eleazar know? Did he know about Perseus and the Princess, and that this would be the reaction? An expression of terror no longer hid behind the mask of bravery as his king retorted, defaming him and branding him a traitor in front of his brother.
'What? Why are they looking at me like I am the villain? He is sitting right there, just see it... What is in my hand?' He questioned himself, puzzled at what drove him to bring in the blade. Did he always mistrust Perseus? Did he always see him as a unworthy King?
Blue eyes gleamed with fear, heart racing as he battled the frenzied man before him, for Artemis just offered to hand him over in exchange. Struck stupid, he had no answer for the betrayal he now faced. 'Am I really worth less?' Despite knowing what his kingdom and people would face if he succumbed to Eleazar, he still only thought about his own stature. "Are you mad?" he stuttered through, but before he could continue, his brother responded, and he was still with fear.
The echo of his hands coming together, the smile that decorated his face. This nightmare was now their reality.
Breath quickened and he pushed Perseus away with a hefty shove, gaining enough distance before raising his blade in hand. He had the advantage, and he would use it to save himself. "I will not think twice before cutting you down where you stand. I will not play into Eleazar game," he declared in the direction of both Perseus and Artemis. He knew now that they would kill him in place of the princess, and to fulfill Eleazar's demand.
He had to run.
Stepping forward he quickly made for the door in an attempt to escape.
Post by Perseus Elein on Mar 23, 2018 12:54:12 GMT -5
You know me all too well
And I can't suppress the memories
You're gone and I can tell
That I've lost more than you'll ever see
He couldn't handle it. It was ripping at his skin, wanting to convulge with his form and every fiber. He took deep breaths, trying to ignore whatever it was that was happening around him, and thankfully it was enough to put the demon at bay.
Eleazar knew about this all along, hadn't he? This was his plan! He felt panic coarse through his veins, but he had to keep himself from turning over. It was then, that the claps Eleazar presented had caught his attention, looking over to the man carefully to hear what he had to say.
This was a game now. A game for their lives. Two would live to see Kura, and for a split second, the answer was obvious - Gael - no, what was he thinking? What kind of king would he be to sacrifice his own people for his selfish desires?
He let out a hoarse breath, looking over at Artemis in defeat, and to Gael with a nod. "Kill me. Both of you go with Kura. You're more important to this cause than I ever was." he admitted defeatedly.
But as he went on to try and explain himself, Gael had interjected, obviously giving no listen to reason or did he seem to care anymore. He was afraid, and he could see it... and now he was running.
"Gael, stop! Just kill me or we're going to circle this tension for a lifetime!" he said quickly. He turned to Eleazar with wide, desperate eyes. "Please. Just let her go. Kill me. Kill me!"
"Mad? Quite the opposite! I'm pleased with how this is unraveling, truly," the king chuckled quietly as he reclined himself back, allowing his feet to fold up upon the table. "You all walked right into my territory and I figured one of you would disobey my rules. And here you are! Exactly as I had imagined it. I am surprised that it was you who drew their weapon first though, Gaelio, I surely assumed Perseus would turn first."
He then turned to Kura's brother, raising a brow. "Or perhaps it was you after all? You were the one who so quickly decided to give up one of your best allies in order to get your precious sister back. Truly foul of you, but for a noble cause, I can see. She's not exactly the shining gem of your people, so her death wouldn't be missed in the longrun. Gael on the other hand..."
He was running away! All while Perseus begged for his life to be taken. Well, this isn't how he wanted it to go one bit. Now he was annoyed. He wanted to see them kill each other! Or turn on each other! But now he was left with no other choice.
"Now... I'm mad." he sighed, raising a hand and snapping his finger loudly in the air. With the whip of a blade through the foyer, a knife met flesh, soft and pudgy, and made a satisfying squish as the tip of the blade sank deep enough to Gael scream. Landing right in the back between the shoulders, it would surely kill slowly and painfully.
"I'll ask again one last time. One of you is already dying, so I made it easier for you. But would you be a dear and put my brother out of his misery? I'll release the girl and her guard dog to you after."

He was almost there, he could see the door and his path to freedom and security. He WOULD live, he would not give these lunatics the satisfaction they desired and he would come back with a regiment of men to wipe out Eleazar's filth. He ignored his king's pleas, the sound of his voice not even sinking into his mind as he could only think about escaping the pressure of his brother's reach. Finger tips brushed against the handle, relief almost filling his heart as the audible snap of fingers echoed in the room and the weight of a projectile met his back.
He screamed, falling to his knees, his hands out in front of him as the stinging sensation of his flesh burned from the wound. He couldn't move, he couldn't reach for it without meeting the pain. He felt the warmth begin to pool and tears began to well up in his eyes. He could still live, if only he could reach the door. Head turned, he glanced to his brother as he suggested they killed him to put him out of his misery and suffering.
Was it really that bad? He began to grow dizzy, muscles shaking from the adrenaline that ran through his body, and as is began to dull, his pain grew more intense. He now faced death regardless, and he was scared. Moments of hesitation, he contemplated on his actions, and where to go from here. In his mind he only came to one conclusion.
With the least amount of movement as possible, he nudged his blade in the direction of Artemis. "Just do it. My sentence has been given either.. way..." he cried, the forethought of death looming over him, and the pain searing from his wound. In the end, he was unworthy as a hero, and as a prince, but at least now --the princess would be given the chance to live. "Surely you are far braver than I am... Make it fast Artemis, I am already in alot of pain."
Thick droplets of tears decorated the ground as he was on his hands and knees, this position optimal for the future action he would soon face.
