He pulled the reins back, stopping his horse in the palace courtyard. Dressed in mostly dark colors but wearing a white shirt that is popped open, exposing part of his chest, and red sunglasses that hide his blue eyes, his name is Jordan Maron, one of the top generals in Etora who he has been gone for the past three months with the explanation from the king that stated that he was on some much needed 'vacation time.'. But the citizens and the soldiers have been worried about the general and his disappearing and yet were put at ease seeing his return.

The general gets off of his horse. A stable boy taking his horse's reins and to the stables, he goes inside the palace, his hand resting on the hilt of his sword as he went towards the infirmary, but stopped when he saw Prince Zachary, the Prince looked at Jordan, smiling.

"Nice to see you aren't dead, Jordan." The Prince said walking towards Jordan. Jordan smiled a bit at the Prince.

"Nice to see you too, your highness. By the way, was it you leading my cavalry unit into Hazia?" Jordan asked. The Prince shook his head.

"Not this time, Ty did that. Is this just a visit?" The Prince asked. Jordan shakes his head.

"Nope. I got a message from your father about what happened. I need to go, but since I'm back, that means that I'm back in charge of on-ground forces, but thanks for taking care of them for the three months I was gone. I've heard of everything you have been doing and I'm impressed. You would make a great general if you weren't already a Prince." Jordan said before walking past the Prince.

"Haven't you been a General for us for sixteen years, don't you think it is time to retire?" Prince Zachary asked. Jordan turned to him, shaking his head.

"What else could I possibly do with my life after spending most of it in the military? I know you want full command of the on-ground forces, but you are the heir to the throne, you can't be King and a General. So leave the Genera job to me and you focus on being a king when your time comes for the throne. And I do hope I get to that. I need to go, bye your highness." Jordan said walking away. Jordan walked into the infirmary, seeing the King beside a bed in the back. Jordan walked over to them, any soldiers that he pass saluted at him.

"Your Majesty, I'm sorry I am late," Jordan said. The King smiled, turning around.

"Don't be, what only matters is that you are here." The King said. Jordan went beside the King, looking at Sky, and then at the king.

"So this is him," Jordan said. The King nodded, looking at Jordan, meeting his eyes.

"You know what your job is then?" He asked. Jordan nodded, his eyes glancing back at the unconscious man in the bed.

"Protect him, I know," Jordan said.

"Let's talk in private, General." The King said turning away, Jordan followed him out. They talked as they walked down the halls of the palace, almost in hushed tones at times. "And don't call him by his real name, call him Sky for now. That's what Ian said his name is. And I'm sorry to interrupt your temporary leave, but you, Derick, and Miss Linda are the only ones who are knowledgeable of this that I can trust right now. I would say Azdel but it is important to involve him as little as possible with the investigation." Jordan nods.
