I am alone, dead, forgotten and adrift looking for answers to many of the questions I have and what I look for the most is "Justice".
My name is Aland I am 16 years old and I am a human being, I live in a medieval fantasy world where magic and magical creatures exist, where strange and incredible events are real. There are countless incredible creatures, fairies, elves, dwarves, elves, dragons, mermaids, ogres, cyclopes and many more incredible living beings that would take me hundreds of pages to name them. I am sure that anyone would think that this world is beautiful, but it is not. From my point of view this is not a friendly or beautiful world, it is horrible cruel and not at all easy to survive.
This world is divided by several kingdoms, the humans, the elves, the angels and the last kingdom are the horrible demonic creatures, these creatures are found all over the world, and in this kingdom they are not all of the same species, there are ogres, minotaurs, goblins, satyrs and many other horrible creatures, they all serve the same king, no one knows what kind of monster or demon he is, many call him the king of monsters or demons and they also call him "The Dark King" " The humans the elves and the angels are allies, with a common goal "to defeat and protect the dark king".
When I was 11 years old I lived with my parents in the main capital of the human kingdom, there lived the king of the Froiland humans, my mother was a Valkyrie, the Valkyries were the elite personal guard of the king, and my father was the leader of the legion of murderers and a member of Valhalla, the legion of murderers were in charge of spying and assassinating military leaders, without the need to make a war or without anyone knowing who it was, everything that made the legion of murderers confidential, the only ones who knew of their existence were the king and the members of the valhalla, the valhalla is a selective group of people who lead humanity along with the king.
One day my father had to go personally to make an espionage to one of the main commanders of the Dark King, his name was "Asmodeus". At first glance, it seemed like a common mission. My father told the Valhalla members and the king that he would investigate Asmodeus, but in reality he went to spy on a human commander named "Brayton", and you are surely wondering why he decided to investigate it. I really do not know, but that cost my parents' lives.
When my father returned from his mission he entered the house full of agitation and with a pale face totally frightened, as if he had seen the Dark King in person, when I saw his face I assumed that something bad was going to happen ...
Immediately my father locked himself with my mother in the room, they closed the door and I went to the door to be able to hear what they were talking about. I could not hear very well what they were talking about but there were a couple of words my father said which left me cold, the words were "They are coming soon and they will kill us, there is no way we can escape", after a long silence, my mother replied "We will stop them while Aland escapes", my father replied "It's fine we have no other choice, I'll tell Aland to go with his grandfather".
My grandfather from my father was the one who created the Legion of assassins, he lived a couple of kilometers outside the city in a dark forest full of traps, every summer since he was 6 years old he went with my father to train and to learn the magic of the shadows along with my grandfather, the only ones who knew how to get to my grandfather's home without dying in the attempt were my father and me.
When my parents left the room they told me to calm down and everything would be all right, my mother went to put on her armor and my father sat in his room to write in his book, once my father finished writing In a bag that I was preparing, when my father gave me the bag he said "Go with Grandpa and give him this book, and do not read it until you are 18 years old, Please do not read it before, go with the grandfather fast , go with my horse, go out the back door and go as fast as you can without stopping, I love you, son, take care of yourself ". I did not understand what was happening, my father and my mother crying and I ... a frightened child who did not understand what was about to happen.
Suddenly it was heard as they beat strongly the front door of my house, and was able to listen as someone shouted, GO OUT NOW, "TRAITORS". Immediately my parents told me to run to the horse and ride without stopping until I arrived with my grandfather. When I opened the back door of my house it was full of Knights of General Brayton, some of the gentlemen told me to go with them and that they would not hurt me, I thought it would be a good idea to go to them, so I headed towards them slowly , until I saw how most of them began to draw their swords, I was instantly scared and assumed they wanted to kill me ...
Suddenly loud noises were heard from inside my house, explosions were heard shouting and swords clashing, I and all the gentlemen who were with me in the back of my house we were quiet and silent, until one of the gentleman approached me with great speed with the intention of killing me, I was left totally frightened, and suddenly ....
My father appeared out of nowhere emerging from the ground, my father was in front of me and he rushed to the gentleman who was coming towards me, the knight was carrying a big sword which he used with both hands, when the two were close enough, the knight threw a blow with his great sword from above and father managed to dodge it easily because my father was very agile and the gentleman was very big and slow, when my father managed to dodge it crossed him in the chest with his two swords.
The knight died, and when I barely touched the floor all the knights rushed at him, my father shouted at me to grab the horse and go with my grandfather, I went as fast as I could to the horse and I started riding towards the entrance of the horse. the capital, the big problem was that my house was almost in the middle of the city and was very far from the entrance. I looked back and saw how my father started using shadow magic against the knights who were trying to grab me, I was throwing balls of shadows at them. I decided to go to the front of my house because loud noises were heard and I was worried about my mother, when I got to the front and saw that there were a lot of gentlemen surrounding my mother, in front of my house there was a big road It was the largest and most important road in the capital. I watched for a couple of seconds, and some of the gentlemen noticed me and shouted, "The boy escapes stop."
My mother started shouting loudly that I was going away, most of the knights started to go to where I was, my mother started running towards me crossing all the knights cutting them with her ax in half. I manage to reach towards me I could see that I was very hurt and I positioned myself in front of me, also my father arrived all bloody and very beaten. All the knights stood still and very frightened, I thought that everything was over, until there was a loud cry from behind the knights, what was heard was "Kill those traitors and your son right now".
From behind Commander Brayton began to approach, Commander Brayton was very scared, he was huge and was carrying a big hammer, my parents told me they would stop him, and Major Brayton shouted, "TRAITORS ARE GOING TO DIE." Brayton started running with all his knights towards us, my mother shouted "GO OUT OF HERE ALAND DO NOT STOP". I started to ride and I looked back to see my parents, I saw how Brayton rushed towards my mother and hit her hard with his hammer, I throw it several meters and when I fell I saw him spit a lot of blood, my father threw him a ball of Brayton shadow, I hit him in the chest and managed to arroro a few meters, when I looked like he had died, but managed to get up without problem, Brayton was used to receiving great impacts, my attempt to throw another ball but I do not succeed.
Out of nowhere, an arrow fell on him, which struck him right in the heart. I stopped, I was paralyzed, instantly my mother got up to stop all the knights who were trying to kill my father, my mother was cutting all the knights in half. And I could see how an archer positioned himself above my house and started pointing to my mother, the archer was Brayton's brother named Everard. The arrow was thrown and hit in the head of my mother, my father was agonizing and screaming, trying to get up but he approached him Brayton kicked my father, the callus and Brayton raised his hammer and I crushed the head to my father. I stayed still crying scared, but suddenly I got a great anger in the body I wanted to kill them but, I was only an 11 year old boy, unfortunately I could not do anything, the only thing I could do was go with my grandfather to survive, and then revenge. I started riding towards the door I was very fast, when I was about to reach the entrance, arrows began to fall from behind and shouted to close the door, began to close the door, luckily I was near and my father's horse was very fast. I managed to get out and those who were chasing me did not manage to escape.
From there I went to where my grandfather was. When I arrived I told my grandfather everything and handed him the book, my grandfather took me to a room and I prepared a bed so he could sleep, my grandfather told me "Rest here son you went through many horrible things, rest easy, I I'll go read the book, Good Night.
