Chapter Eighty-Five: The Great War
Battle had broken out through the heart of Aeralin. Houses that had once belonged to the noblest ladies and lords had been knocked down and broken into useless planks. A trail of dead bodies stretched from the castle gates to the border of the capital. Decorating the entirety of Aeralin.
Canons were set alight and catapults were fired, filling the night sky with flames and suffocating fumes which left an unpleasant image of dirtied faces, blackened by burnt ash. Men gagged on the thick black smoke that populated the air and choked on flakes of ashes which could've been mistaken for snow.
The great war resembled the pinnacle of hell with demons ruthlessly raiding each region, jumping from one village to the next, and the witches placing a temporary spell on the kingdom to stop the clock and ensure never-ending darkness until the war was over.
The spell had taken centuries to master which is why the chances of victory for the witches had massively increased compared to the past. Now that the spell worked, the witches hoped it would prevent yet another failed mission at restoring peace. After all, a failure to fulfil the prophecies of the past was the reason why a curse of war was cast on the five kingdoms: Asten, Hellstone, the Shadowlands, Pandora and Lost.
This curse could only be broken by fulfilling the prophecy and thanks to the witches, the sun would not rise until it was done.
Now that the demon and witch army had successfully trespassed onto royal soil and invaded the castle; it was time to lure the vampire-werewolf army out onto the battlefield and fight for the Astenian throne.
"You don't get it, Eve! I don't want it anymore!" I exasperatedly spun around. "I don't want to see any more innocent lives taken!"
"I'm not sure I want to see Zac hurt either," I sighed closing my eyes and pressing my palms against my head in frustration. "This war has escalated and it needs to end."
