Many years ago, there was only one continent on earth, and this continent had a powerful king. King Einar, this King had a strong will, a generous personality, and a compassionate heart. After a long reign, the King called his 5 sons to choose a new heir to his kingdom, giving each of them different duties.
"Whoever completes his mission successfully will be the next king."
The King said.
After the King's words, each brother accepted their duties and left the palace. After a short time, each Brother returns to the palace having completed their duties. But the King tells all the other brothers, except the youngest brother, that they failed the test. The eldest and most powerful brother Yores opposes this situation and asks why he did such a thing. In response, the King says,
"I did not give you your duties to show off your power, being a king is not about only being powerful."
"You can't let your other four sons down so easily!"
"I gave you the test you needed, and it was in your hands whether you could pass it."
After this election of the king, there was great anger in the eyes of Yores.
He said, "You will regret this decision, my king."
Yores left that day, with all his anger.
He knew his father wouldn't change his mind. So he made a deal with the most powerful lineage, the Apocalypse Lineage, to take the throne and by obtaining incredible power, he started a rebellion.
Yores had killed his own father in front of his brothers and thrown each of his brothers into a dungeon. After Yores takes the throne, people in the Kingdom called him with a nickname because of his evil reign, the Ruthless King Yores.
This continued for such a long time, until that day.
A wolf descendant, one of the strongest lineage, challenged Yores.
That person's name was Jiro, Jiro was the most powerful person among his own lineage and other lineages. That's why they called him "Alpha Prime."
Alpha Prime stood in front of him and said: "Enough with your evil ruling, it's time to put an end to the suffering of these people."
"Well, you should have known I'm the most powerful king in these lands. I don't give orders by hiding among others like other cowards."
"Then you can show me that power, can't you?
The Battle of Jiro and Yores continued for three days, their battle being heard all over the continent, it was an epic battle. When the war was over, Yores went to the bottom of the dark waters, Jiro had won, but died on the battlefield from his severe wounds.
Since their war, the entire continent has been divided into five.
The King's children agreed among themselves, and each of them was divided into parts of the continent, and thus five kingdoms were born.
EIGHTEEN YEARS LATER
First Kingdom (Proun village)
"Breath" "Breath" Like other days, today started with a nightmare
"Did you have the same nightmare again, Ryuu?"
"Yes, as always."
Even though I've seen this nightmare every time, I've never understood it, I was being chased over and over again every time, But by what? He didn't look like a monster, but he didn't look like a person. I think it's going to stay in my head for a while.
My uncle approaches me with a glass of water in his hand, and says,
"Here, drink some water."
"Are you feeling better now ?"
"Yeah, I'm better."
"Good, we have to go down to the square with you today, remember, we'll get something for the farm."
"All right, Uncle, I'll get ready"
As I prepared and left the room, my uncle handed me a black cape,
"Don't forget to wear this."
I don't know why he handed me this.,
"Why do I have to wear this?"
"The whole village complains a little about your clumsiness, so it would be better if you didn't show up."
"I don't think I'm that clumsy."
"Last week you almost burned the village, the week before that you let the horses escape, and the week before that....."
"Okay, I understand enough, I'll wear this."
"Good, I'll wait for you at the door."
We managed to reach the square of the village towards noon, the markets were crowded as usual and a lot of festivities were organized.
"Why are there so many festivals today?"
"Today is the 18th anniversary of the Kingdom's founding, they are probably preparing things for that."
I pointed people dancing in the middle of the city with my finger,
"Uncle, what are they doing over there?"
"They dance in the middle of the city to celebrate, It's usually something couples do."
"Well, when you were young, would you come here as a couple with somebody?
My uncle seemed that he was a little annoyed with my question.
*Sigh* "I guess I shouldn't have brought you."
"I have a little bit of work. Buy some apple from here, I will meet you later in the square."
"Ok, I'll take care of it."
After our roads parted, I noticed something in the marketplace, People gathered, watching an event in fear.
A troubled type was beating an innocent man in front of everyone.
"You still haven't paid what you owe me, you scum."
"Sorry, I promise I will pay back soon."
"I'm sick of these lies."
Nobody around could speak out to this situation, I wanted to do something, but I was too scared and couldn't move.
"You should have thought about that from the very beginning."
"I beg you, please stop, It's my fault, give me one more chance!"
The anger that appeared inside me took over my whole body.
"Stop now! If you continue like this, you will kill him!"
The man said with a grin,
"Did you tell me that, boy?"
"Yes, I said to you, you asshole, you have no right to attack this man, leave the man alone!"
"So you told me that? You talk a lot, kid."
Before I knew what was happening, I got a punch in the stomach, it was very painful, I was knocked down by the blow he gave.
"Do you think you have courage? little man?"
I tried to move, but I could barely breathe, before I could get up he approached and continued to attack. But I saw someone coming from the corner. It was a familiar face.
"What are you going to do old man, you will try to bea-"
In the blink of an eye, the man had already entered the wall of one of the houses, standing unconscious.
"I told you to get the hell out of here."
Everyone continued to watch the event in amazement as they were.
"Are you okay?"
"Yes thank you, Uncle, I'm fine."
"Come on, let's put ice in your eyes before your eyes swell."
My uncle took some ice from the market above the road and put it in my eye,
"Why do you have to be so irresponsible every time? You have been the same since you were a child."
"Was I supposed to watch that guy get beaten there?"
"Your father entrusted you to me and you don't make the rules here. If you want to survive, you will listen to my words, understood?"
"Good, we have a lot of work to do, let's go."
My uncle has been like this since my childhood, he used to show his authority, but no matter how much he acted like this, he always had a kind side to me.
My Uncle and I loaded the equipment for the farm in the sun for a long time, and our work was finished towards the sunset. The festivity in the city square became even more enthusiastic after the sunset.
"Uncle, can be other kingdoms be like this?"
"The rulers of kingdoms may be brothers, but each kingdom is ruled differently from each other. You can see many more similar or different ones from this kingdom here."
"Are the kingdoms really so different from each other?
"Yes, no kingdoms are alike. They are all developed and talented in different matters. The first kingdom we are in is a developed kingdom in terms of agriculture. The second kingdom is rich in minerals. The third kingdom is rich in commerce. The fourth kingdom is advanced in weapons and technology. And finally, the fifth kingdom is rich in wealth. The fifth kingdom that is much more advanced than the others in power and many aspects, but no family member rules that kingdom.
"Who's in charge of the duties then?"
"Nobody knows, they always hid this issue, but their system works perfectly fine."
"I would like to see the kingdoms outside."
"It is natural that you want to go to the kingdoms outside, to explore, but I do this for your safety.
My uncle pulled a packet out of his back pocket and said,
"It may not be a great gift, but I still think you will like it."
I reached for the package and quickly opened it, there was a map in it. I couldn't understand why he was giving me a map.
"This is a map. But what's the point of this map?"
"This is not an ordinary map. There is more than it is on it."
It was a very nice gesture that he was thinking of me and bought a gift to make me happy.
"Thank you, Uncle." I said with a smile.
After traveling for a while, my uncle turned back to me,
"When I think again, you worked hard today and it's your birthday, so you can go to the celebrations and have fun."
I was really surprised by this situation, it was rare that my uncle usually let me go.
"Yes, but in half an hour, we have to go."
"Ok then, I'll be here in half an hour."
I moved towards the place of celebrations with excitement inside me. My uncle continued his work from where he left off.
20 minutes later In Kaika's house
"It's been a long time, Kaika."
"Oh Pelena, it's been a long time."
After greeting, we decided to go home and sit down and talk.
10 minutes later
"When I heard you were here, I thought I should say hello."
"Well thought, how is your situation?"
"I'm fine, thanks for asking, I had a daughter, I have a beautiful life as always."
"It's really good to hear that."
I wonder how I will tell him that.
"I'm here to talk to you about a special topic."
"A special topic?"
"You know he's searching for you, right?"
After saying this, the expression on his face took on a frightened and anxious expression.
"Are you sure about that?"
"The boy doesn't have the strength to fight yet and I don't know how strong Miron has become. So we'd better go out of here for the sake of everybody, Pelena, meet me at my home at midnight."
"So what are you going to do?"
"Ryuu is alone in the city square, I have to get him from there."
At the same time in the city,
"There's really a lot to taste and see here. I wish my Uncle was here too."
After looking at the activities around for a while, the vitality of the people there impressed me. After all, it was the first time I saw such a good event.
"I apologize for stealing your precious time, my speech will not take long."
After the dance show in the center was over, a man wearing a black cloak went on stage and said this. I couldn't see his face, but when I heard his voice, it was really convincing.
"I came here looking for two people. Someone is an old man. He is tall, big, with short brown hair, a brown beard, and eyes. Have you people seen this guy? Didn't you see him? Interesting. "
One of the people shouted,
"We are not here to listen to you, we came to listen to music, get down from that stage."
People were not happy with this situation. Some continued to shout at him, while others were talking about how absurd it was.
Everyone was very angry, but until the man made a huge impact by hitting his foot on the ground. Because of the effect it created, all of the viewers lost their contribution with fear.
"People are always the same, they put what they want above the wishes of others, they don't know what to be understanding. And as a result of such behavior, they get what they deserve. Let me show you. "
The man in a black cloak held up his right hand and rose up into the sky, gliding purple light from his hand. After a short silence, suddenly the sky turned purple.
Everybody was trying to understand the situation, most of the people looked around but they saw nothing until somebody said,
"What are these creatures?" Said a random person in fear.
Spirits were starting to come from the sky, It was just like a horror movie. The crowd, angry seconds ago, were running away in fear.
I looked around in fear and nervousness, it was very difficult to watch what was going on, and every second I was thinking what to do. Two of the ghosts saw me at that time, and I started running quickly, I knew I had to get away from here. After running away for a while, I tripped and fell. At that moment I noticed the ghosts were catching up with me and they were so close to attacking me. But I was afraid, I didn't have the time to do anything. I closed my eyes and wished that what had happened would end, and I think my wish came true.
"Are you okay?"
"Yes, I'm fine, but now many people other than me are getting chased by these spirits, what are we going to do?"
"Alright, we are getting out of here."
"But what about the other people?"
"If we get out of here they are going to be safe."
"How is this possible?"
"I don't have time to tell. Follow me."
When we turned around the man in the black cape was right in front of us.
"Here you are, Kaika."
At that moment, my uncle hit the ground with his hands, creating a big crack in the ground. This gave us the necessary time.
"We're leaving, now."
We quickly walked away from there without looking back.
"How does that black-caped man know about you?"
"All you have to know is that guy is a very dangerous person, especially for us."
"So what are we gonna do?"
"We'll go back home, and then we'll leave this kingdom. When Miron finds out that we are leaving, he will leave the kingdom alone.
We got home in a short time. A carriage was waiting in front of the house, there was a woman at the carriage and a girl in the carriage.
By looking at them,
"Who are these people?"
"They are the people who will take you from here, Pelana is a friend of mine, and that's her daughter."
"Wait a second, what are you going to do?"
"If I come with you, your life will be in danger too, I cannot bring danger with me. For your safety, I will stay here and take care of him."
"You said the man was very dangerous and now you want to fight him?"
The woman in the car approached me and said,
"Your uncle is right, this is the best way, if we stay with him we could lose more than enough life. He also can find us easily."
"This is nonsense we can all escape together. Come with us!"
"I've run long enough, and if I keep running he'll come after me again. But now is the time to stop. "
His words stuck in my brain like a bullet, my heart doesn't have the power to leave him there, but I don't have the power to take him with me neither.
"You never listen to what I say."
I was in tears, I didn't even know that such a farewell would happen soon.
"Uncle, please be careful."
"Don't worry about me, I'll make it, go before he gets here."
After getting into the back of the cart, I looked at my Uncle one more time, I saw him one last time, he was looking at me with sad eyes. After a while, I could not see him anymore.
"Ryuu, you don't need to be afraid, he's a pretty strong guy. I'm sure he'll handle it."
"How do you know my uncle, who are you?"
"I am Pelena a witch and the person next to me is my daughter Lezlie, and she is a witch like me. Your uncle saved the lives of me and Lezlie a long time ago. We haven't met him afterward until today."
"Did he saved your life?"
"Yes, one day, at night, suddenly a fire broke out in our village. But the fire was made not accidentally but made of grits. The people who started the fire did something like this to kidnap children or women from the village. My husband tried to protect us, but they killed him in front of our eyes without mercy. At that moment, your Uncle came out. He alone saved me, my daughter, dozens of people. Your uncle became a hero in our eyes after that day. Kaika did not want to endanger us because Miron was following him and he left us after a short while."
"So why suddenly you come today?"
"Strong witches can see the future even in a short time. I saw a dangerous future with you and your Uncle. That's why I came to warn you. Witches like me don't like to be in debt, and I pay off my debt to your Uncle by saving you. That's all."
"So why didn't we help him?"
"I can't, Miron is on another level even for me. Also, I'm not good at fighting. I'll just be a tie-in to your uncle."
Back at the Village.
I sat on a stone and waited for him. He slowly approached me through the trees. "Miron".
"It's been a long, long time, Kaika. You seem unhappy to see me."
"How did you find me?"
"That's my job. Remember? I'm a Wolfhunter. Do you know what's funny about it? Over the past years, you have run away from me. All the people in the wolf race I killed died fighting with dignity, but you chose to hide like a coward. How pathetic isn't it?"
"You killed innocent people, killed half of my lineage. So what did you get?"
"Fear, I grew up and developed in fear. and now I will show everyone that fear is stronger than logic. "
"Life is very simple, you get what you give."
"A meaningful word but unnecessary."
"Oh, and also I forgot to ask. I saw you protecting a kid today, but the real question is who was that boy and why did you protect him?"
"This is none of your business."
"I understand, I will learn the hard way. Good but troublesome."
The moment I dropped my guard, he pointed his hand at me and sprayed the Spirit flame at me. I managed to escape by jumping very high. The trees behind me were heavily damaged.
The scoundrel kept attacking without letting me breathe. I tried to avoid his attacks as quickly as I could. I got behind him and hit his waist hard. With the effect of the fist, he started flying towards my house. He hit the house and shattered it.
After a couple of seconds, he stood up and said,
"Not bad, despite your old age, you still maintain your strength. But unfortunately, I didn't stay the same."
Putting both hands together, he once again ignited the spirit flame. This time the fire was much stronger, much more durable. I couldn't escape the fire, this time I tried to protect myself from the flame with the irons on my wrists. The fire continued to devastate dozens of trees in the forest. My arms were badly injured and there was incredible pain.
He then switched to melee and tried faster attacks. I tried to throw several punches at the same time while dodging in his fists. The moment he caught my deficit, he covered his hand with spirit fire and dealt me a very strong blow. I was unable to escape the blow and it hit my stomach. With the effect of the fist, I flew into the mountain behind me and crashed into the mountain.
There was blood coming out of my mouth now and great damage was done on the mountain.
"I think I broke a few bones. He's too fast, I have to catch his fists.
"There is nothing I can do, I have to win!"
I increased my speed with every punch I threw. He dodged easily from my fists, but there was something he forgot.
"You dropped your guard!"
Getting behind him, I hit him hard in the face with my elbow.
After the blow, Miron wiped the blood from his mouth and smiled. He kept attacking again with all his power.
As soon as I thought his attacks were slowing down he smiled and attacked again,
"You dropped your guard!" he said with a grin.
He threw Kaika into the mountain once more leaving him powerless.
After a moment of silence, he turned and started walking,
"He lasted less than I thought, I expected more from Kaika.
As soon as he was leaving, he felt a shaking in the ground,
When he turned around, the view was beyond words.
The huge mountain was shattered and huge pieces were thrown by Kaika towards Miron.
"Giving up isn't for you, huh Kaika?
At the same time, Miron prepared a huge spirit flame and sprayed it towards Kaika.
Their battle changed the world's destiny, forever.
