For as long as we have known, man has been able to harvest power.
Even the powers of Mother Nature herself.
However, not all men were born with spectacular powers. Some were born with great minds and the gift of strategy, both of which made up for the lack of power.
For years, they lived in peace trading and bringing prosperity to the lands. And then the war came. Prince Xemeor, son of King Brogan, Lord of the Inferno Nation, disappeared without a trace. King Brogan, who was always very paranoid, blamed the Terrine Nation for the disappearance of his son. The Electron Nation, who was one of the Inferno Nation's greatest trading partners, naturally sided with them, while the Frost Nation, who had always been a little angry at the Inferno Nation, sided with the Terrine. Thus the war started. It has lasted 30 years and yet continues, with the Intel and Wind nations occasionally dragged into the fray.
Thus begins this story.
"Aleor, maybe we shouldn't have come this way, Father always said that we shouldn't leave the walls of our city."
"Come on sis, we need to get out, explore, before I become King and am forced to remain in the walls of that city all the time."
"If you say so."
Suddenly two outlaws, with swords drawn, emerged.
"Hello beautiful," One said.
"Back away from my sister, stay away," I replied quickly.
I prepared for a fight that could very well end in my death.
My sister turned to me, saying, "Peace brother, I shall handle this myself."
"Are you sure, Aura," I replied, "I can do it."
"I'll do it, brother, you can't fight all my battles."
"Go ahead and handle it, girl," said one outlaw.
She ran at one of the guards and jumped, slamming the back of her spear into the torso of one of the outlaws.
The other one, seeing this, ran away in terror.
She then lifted the outlaw and held her hunting knife to his throat.
"I want you to leave us girls alone," she said angrily in his ear, "Or I will find you one day and gut you like a fish."
The outlaw squealed in terror.
"Now go, run, before I change my mind."
He ran, not looking back once.
"Let us go now, brother."
The build, simple but I like it.
