Heir of the Ancients **ON HOLD** sorry :/
The light and darkness... a perfect balance, and yet each strives to win a war. They do not understand that one does not exist without the other. If left in darkness, the flower withers and dies. And yet with only light, the flower burns with the flames of desire which caused them to think that they were right all along. No one is ever truly right about anything. The truth is long gone, extinguished by darkness, empowered by light. Long ago the ancient ones ruled the realm. Each with a gift to help their kingdom and people thrive. One controlled light and healing, one the sea and tide, another all the magic of the realm. One could harness the earth and all its creatures, while another could read and control the minds of everything that breathed, the most gentle of them all could control weather and seasons, but the second eldest was cold and harsh.
He controlled the shadows and death itself. Betrayed by the ones he loved the most. He cursed them all.
But seeing what their brother was doing, the ancients came together and used their powers to escape. They would wait in a deep slumber, until one day a being of pure love and light would be born to save them from the eternity of darkness. This being would be the heir, possessing not just one gift, but as many as they could master...or dared to.
And Princess Maria had only wanted to escape an arranged marriage...awkward.
