The Only One Left


Year 450. 
The Great War.
Location The Central Cities of Trinity Empire, Outside the Wall.

The Unified Alliance Siege weapons and Army surround the moat which accompanies with high fortification stone wall of the Trinity central cities. The powerful wizards and witches of the Alliance army stand proudly on the top of the siege weapon while bombarding the fortification wall and inner cities with their most powerful magic spell.

"WE'RE ALMOST THERE MENS, JUST A FEW MORE PUSH!!!" shouted one of the captains of the Unified Alliance Army as they try to breach the gate that leads into the cities.

"CAPTAIN, NEWS FROM THE REAR!!!" a messenger running to the captain avoiding arrow while shouting toward the captain.

The captains turn his head toward the out of breath messenger "Out with it boys!!!" the captain says in high deep voice.

"I'm sorry Captain," the messenger replied after saluting toward the captain. 

"The four heroes from each Race of the Unified Alliance will be joining your company for the last push, Sir!" the messenger lower his salutes toward the captain after finishing delivering the message.

The captain laugh out aloud as he held the shoulder of the messenger "This is truly the mark of defeat for the evil Trinity empire"

They both look at the High forfication wall seeing crack on it and rock crumbling off it, they both smile because today is the last day for the Trinity empire, no more will they strike fear and harm to the common people living across the continent.
********************************************************************************

Inside The Cities.
The Cities is a state of ruin and fire can be seen blazing at some building, a large group of a slave that served the Trinity empire gathered around the plaza.

"Why can't you come with us? you don't owe anything for the Trinity empire, they treated us like a slave and force us to fight their war" a dark skin woman with a Rose gold hair say to the man in front of her while holding his right hand.

"They deserved what happen to them," the woman says with a slight angered in her voice.

The man showed a sad smile toward her "You know why" the man said with regret.

"The unified Alliance will not let me go even if the empire is destroyed they will hunt me down for them I am the dark champion of the Trinity Empire, I have done many terrible things for the empire if I go with you, I would endanger your own live and many others" the man grip the woman hand tighter seeking comfort in her warm hand.

"You have done nothing wrong dear" she stroke his cheek with her another hand "you did it because it was under empire order and to protect us from them besides let them come I'm not afraid of them," the woman said with a determined look.

"I.. will not let you and our unborn child come into harm because of me," the man says with a saddened look and raise his other arm placing it on the woman belly, he can feel slight bulge where his unborn child is.

"THE TUNNEL IS OPEN!!! QUICKLY COME BEFORE THE FORCE INVADE THE CITY!!" one of the slaves shouted to the rest of the slave.

The entrance to the tunnel is small and can only fit one person at a time so the slave all lined up then one by one entered the tunnel quickly, after a few moment halves of the slave has managed escaped into the tunnel.

"Milana" the man say to the woman.

"What is it my love?" the woman stroke his cheek.

"I just want to say your name one last time," the man embrace her with both of his hand then a drop of tear leak from his eye and flow down his cheeks.

"Please, I know I'm asking a lot from you, Darya.....Please find me if you managed to survived this, I will be waiting always" Milana say sadly to Darya.

"THE GATE ARE ALMOST DESTROY. QUICKLY MOVE, WE HAVE NO TIME LEFT!!!" another slave shouted while running toward the tunnel.

"I WILL DISTRACTED THEM WHILE ALL YOU ESCAPE QUICKLY!!!" Darya shouts to the people as they trying to escape to the tunnel.

Darya let go of Milana hand as he walks away from her, Milana slips a locket in his hand as their hand separated. Darya holds the locket and looks away from her then he hears some kind of prayer, he looks back and all the slave including Milana knee down and praying for his safety.

Darya look at Milana face and his heart are torn as her face filled with sadness. Darya turns his head with a heavy heart when he starts walking and leaving them behind.

********************************************************************************
In Front Of The Massive Gate.

Darya looks at the locket as he stands in front of the trembling gate after reaching the gate from the Plaza. The locket is just an ordinary looking item if one may look, it has a simple etched design of a sun while a circle surrounding it but he remembers the first time he gifts this locket to her and the beautiful smile she gave him in return.

"Hey youngling, here you forgot your helm" the older veteran with a group of soldiers with full black obsidian heavy armor approach him then the veteran throw his helm at him. Darya catches it in the air then he looks at the locket one more time before he stores the locket under his black obsidian armor chest plate.

"Zakiri, why are are you guys here? don't you want to escape with your family?" Darya said to Zakiri surprised to see him here.

"I'm too old to run, younglings" Zakiri grin, "Besides the other guys want to stay with you until the end, something about brotherhood, what a bunch of crybabies" the man smile as he lifts his giant Warhammer and leans it on his shoulder.

"And also I won't let you grab all the glory" he chuckled as he put on his helm.

After a while, the gate lock finally broke then it is smacked by a large fireball causing it to bend inward, the explosion from the fireball causes the wall to vibrates like an earthquake and dust float in the air.

Darya looked at his helm as he holds it with both his hand, ignoring the quake.

"Like they always said who wants to live forever?" Darya said while wearing his helm.

"THAT THE SPIRIT!!!" Zakiri laughs inside his helmet "BLACK LEGION ONWARD!!!!" the black armor soldier from a tight rectangle formation before the smoke and dust around the gate beginning to dissipate, they march in perfect order and unison without showing any sign of fear.

The Unified Alliance army charged toward the gate but they stopped as they witnessed the Black Legion marched with the Dark Champion in front of them leading them.

Some of the unified alliance soldiers take step back as they saw them marching forward feeling intimidated by the Black Legion fearlessness.

"DONT BE INTIMIDATED LADS, THE FOUR HEROES IS WITH US, CHARGED LADS, CHARGED!!!".

The Unified Alliance Army snap from their fear as they hear their captain voice then they begin their charged toward them again. The Black Legion ready their stance waiting for the right moment the Alliance to come close to their striking area when the Unified Army step into their area, the black Legion strike down before they even manage to come close. Some were slashed and other was pushed off the bridge while some were not lucky as they were meet their death at the end of Black Legion blade.

Zakiri swings his giant Warhammer toward the Unified Alliance soldier hitting them and throwing them into the moat while some aren't lucky as they armor is crushed by the massive force that hit them.

Darya stands at the back while holding his sword on it sheathe letting his legion handle the front while eliminating the one that manages to get through the line.

As Zakiri swing his Warhammer toward the soldier he saw at the rear of the soldier formation the four heroes charging toward them.

Zakiri shouted, "DARYA, THEY COMING!!!".

The moment Darya hear the Zakiri voice, he mutter 'Fade' with a one-step he took with his feet, he zooms past the line with a blink of eye heading toward the Four Heroes.

Darya mutter again 'Multiply' as he comes a few meter closer toward the heroes then his body envelope into dark mist then spread around him forming three clones beside him aiming for each of the heroes as for Darya he aims toward the human Hero first when he close enough he ready his stance for an upward strike.

Darya slashes upward with his sword toward the human heroes while analyzing the hero equipment just as expected from past encounter the hero wearing is a classic silver knight medium armor with a wing emblem etched in front of the armor. The hero blocks Darya attack with his spear and a grin on his face.

Darya remembers the hero from the last battle if it not mistaken it the same hero with his golden hair to his white smooth skin.

"Finally, we can end this DEMON!!" Darya can hear the sound of anger in the hero's voice.

"You will pay for what you have done" he continued.

Showing no emotion from the word the hero just utter instead Darya spot his clone is being decimated by each of the heroes so he back away from the human hero to make some distance between them as he back away the Dwarf male hero with a long beard raises his hammer and strikes the ground causing the ground to tremble.

The ground crack and forming a large hole in the ground behind Darya causing him to stop as he stops an arrow flew toward him with a slight adjust he manage to dodge the arrow and saw where it come from. He saw the beautiful elven Female Hero with slight greenish skin holding the bow.

He dodges again to the right as a Lighting bolt shot toward him by the Drakaina female hero with scale covering her body as she levitates from the ground with her dragon shape wing.

Darya look at the four of them, he can feel the panic in his hearts but quickly calm himself as he recalls Milana faces. Darya mutter again 'strength, agility, and reflex enhance' then he can feel the power coursing through his body. 

He ready his stance then he mutters the word 'Fade'.

Suddenly Darya disappears and can be seen heading towards the elven female hero first causing her back away but she was not fast enough.

Darya slashing his sword from her shoulder to her leg but she managed to dodge but barely. Still, Darya manages to cut her shoulder a bit then he took the chance to roundhouses her throwing her to the side.

The moment the elven flew away another lighting bolt shot toward Darya but he dodges it this time he turns his body facing toward the Drakaina. 

The Human hero took this chance to throws his spear toward Darya.

Darya was distracted by the lightning bolt from the Drakaina that the spear managed to pierce through his outer shell of Darya leg armor grazing on his leg and making a wound on his leg then the spear flew away and it corrects itself changing its direction toward Darya again.

Darya managed to dodge the spear this time but while he was occupied a lighting bolt strick on his side, the lighting bolt explodes in contact throwing Darya across the battlefield but he managed to correct himself and landing perfectly. Darya looks on the ground and spotted one of the dead soldier body laying on the ground.

As the spear correct itself again, Darya grabs the body and throw it toward the spear causing the spear to puncture the body slowing it down and giving Darya a chance to jumps on the body as it is punctured by the spear then he summons a dark energy spear and threw it toward the Drakaina hero in the air.

She saw the Dark Spear aiming toward her chest and tries to block it with a Magic shield but the dark energy spear turns it course from being aim at her chest to her left wing causing it to punctured her left wing and causing her to fall to the ground.

As Darya about to land on his feet, he spotted the elven woman reading her bow and aiming toward him, the shot flew from the bow and break itself into multiple arrows all flying toward him. 

Darya immediately mutters 'Fade' as a reflex causing him to dashed violently toward a random direction which causes him to crash on the ground then finally his body about to stop rolling on the ground, A two massive wall erupt each beside him.

The wall beside him suddenly slam into each other but Darya managed to mutter 'Explode' then a dark energy release from his body and explode all around him causing the human and dwarf hero near him to flew backward from the explosion.

The crater is filled with smoked the Elven woman run toward the Dwarf hero then she cast a heal spell on him while the Drakaina hero tends to the human hero.

Darya is stunned by the explosion and an annoying ringing sound can be heard in his ear. The ringing in his ear finally stop and he can hear his comrade getting overwhelmed by the Alliance Army. 

Darya look at the bridge only a few of his comrade standing and Zakiri can be seen holding off the enemy with them but as one by one his comrade fall, the number grows thin until finally, only Zakiri left. He tries to fight but too overwhelmed by the force, a few sword and spear manages to pierce him but still, he keeps going. 

Darya can see the smile on Zakiri face from afar somehow even though he's wearing a helmet.

"MEET YOU ON THE OTHERSIDE!!!" Zakiri scream then he cast self-destruction spell on himself taking out the enemy soldier near him and causing a part of the bridge to collapse.

Darya witness the explosion in front of the gate. Darya close his eyes as he saw his friend sacrifice himself then sadness was about to overcome him but he manages to compose himself again while the four heroes are distracted by the explosion and smoke. Darya mutter 'Fade' again but this time aiming toward the Drakaina while aiming his sword at her.

The moment he was close enough, the human hero manage to realize and step in between the sword saving the Drakaina women but the sword pierces through the human male armor stabbing him in his stomach causing him to screams in agony.

As the human hero being pierced by his sword then he looks at the Drakaina female face and anger filled her face. She raises her hand in front of Darya's face and begins to cast a fireball spell. Darya releases his sword and was about to back away but he is not fast enough because he saw the Drakaina hero already finish her cast.

Darya tries blocked the impact of the fireball with his left arm. The moment the fireball come into contact with his arm it explodes and threw Darya toward the Dwarf while Darya was dazed by the explosion.

The Dwarf swing his hammer striking Darya on his back as he comes close to him causing him to be thrown near the large hole in the ground.

Darya rolls the ground and his finally recover from the dazed, as he about to stand up but his leg give out under him causing to fell on his knee then he realizes as his left hand is no longer there and a large pool of blood pouring out of it. Darya was about to scream in agony suddenly an arrow pierced through his shoulder and another pierce through his heart.

He slowly fall back from the impact arrow causing him to slip on a small rock, then he felt his entire body fall back into the hole.

His vision blackened and the cheer of the Unified Alliance Army can be heard as the Dark champion fall.

Somehow he can felt Milana warmth around his body like he was embraced by her. Darya thinks to himself that this is his last moment in this world.

Darya fell Deeper...

And Deeper ...

Until there was no light......

"Please find me" Milana voiced echo in his mind for the last time

A tear forming in his eyes as he falls.
