Chapter 8:

Crime committed

Fragements Of The Moon

That’s cruel “I said in disbelief and covered my mouth

"What is he doing??" I though as i watch Nior stand frozen in confusion and inaction, not even attempting to draw any weapon on the ground. He looks like a deer in headlights; it's as if he has been paralyzed by the presence of this massive dragon. The dragon is breathing fire all over the battlefield, destroying everything in its path.

The flames are spreading quickly and the heat is intense, but Nior seems to be too clueless to make any movements at all but I can only watch in horror as him seems like he has no clue what to do next.

The stakes are high in this duel, What is more shocking is that within blink of an eye ,the dragon pop out of nowhere and attacked nior spiting fire all over the battle area Everyone on the crowed gasp in shock

I'm afraid that the dragon could have killed him. After witnessing how the dragon destroyed everything in its path, I'm also worried about my own safety. I'm not sure if the dragon is angry or just wanted a fight, but either way I don't want to risk being its next victim. My heart is pounding and I'm terrified, but I refuse to just stand by and watch as a friend's life is put in danger like that.

”Nior!!”Without realizing it, I called out his name as loud as I can as my voice echoed throughout the hall

The fire slowly turns out blue and there goes nior , not knowing what to do- silently staring at the dragon who is about to execute its second attack. Without any second thought I made my way into the crowed and run straight into nior as i rush over and try to pull him away from the dragon.

When he heard my voice he slowly turned in my direction

“It’s you Amelia….”he said in a soft voice as he flashed a gentle smile on his face

“what are you doing here?!” At the moment he didn’t do anything however I felt relief about him staring at me.

Thank god he’s okay

“I found you” he added

“No nior get out of here “I yelled as I turned around to see the dark shadow

“It’s dangerous “I added as I reached out his hand and drag him away I can hear the crowed whispering. all eyes are on me Loud footstep approaching .

i immediately went into different direction while dragging nior with me before the dragon smashed it tail on almost few inch away

I immediately turn and run in a different direction while dragging Nior with me before the dragon smashes its tail down on the ground just close behind us. The sound of the dragon's tail hitting the ground is loud and powerful, and it's clear the dragon is incredibly strong and dangerous. It is incredibly quick and I have no doubt that if we would have stayed put for even a second longer, it would have smashed us with its tail! I am scared for my life, but I'm also relieved that we were able to get away before being crushed.

When I hear three loud shots of a gun.

"Granger!!" I yell excitedly as I see him run towards us with a rifle in his arms. I am relieved that he's here to help. He always look after me

I wonder what I have done to deserve such wonderful gift as him

He takes aim and begins shooting at the dragon, firing one shot after the other. The dragon roars in pain and fury and turns back to face him.

"You saved nior!" I shout excitedly as the dragon falls to the ground and stops attacking. I am relieved and excited that Granger's quick thinking and aim have saved us from the dragon's fury. It was a close call, but I have no doubt that Granger's bravery and quick action are what saved us. I am very proud of him

I have no doubt that his sharp aim and steady hands will be the key to helping us escape from this dangerous situation.

He slap his forehead and shook his head in disbelief "Oh my god. I should've just let you get killed!" Granger says, his face falling into fear and horror

I can't believe what he just said! He sounds so cruel and cold, and it almost seems like he doesn't care about me at all. After all that he's done for me, this is how he talks to me? I'm just so shocked by his words and the tone of voice in which he speaks them.

“what was that supposed to mean!”

"You have no idea how scared I was because of your recklessness. I thought I was going to lose you and it terrified me."

I can tell from his voice and his face that he's telling the truth. He really was scared and he really did think he was going to lose me. I didn't realize how much I meant to him and this just makes me feel even more grateful to him. I know that he cares about me, and this just proves it.

“youre not just a hero; youre my best friend now and I'm so lucky to have you in my corner”

"I'm glad you found me" Nior says, pulling me close and hugging me tightly. He seems so relieved to see me and it makes me feel relieved too.

Nior glances at Granger and says, "It was you?" He seems shocked! I'm surprised as well - what's wrong? Did something happen? I look over at Granger and see that he's staring at Nior with a shocked expression on his face. A sense of foreboding fills the air - I have no idea what's going on, but I know that something serious just happened. I turn back to Nior and wait for him to explain - what is going on? What did he mean by "it was you?"

The dragon suddenly goes wild and immediately flies off in the other direction, That’s when i know what exactly was going on the dragon went taught to earls direction

Towards where Earl sits on his throne with his knight. I am shocked and scared by the dragon's sudden movement and aggression. I have no idea what could be causing it to act this way or why it would fly off in that direction. I turn to Nior, searching for answers, but he is just as shocked and confused as I am. We don't know what's going on, but it seems like something terrible is coming. We have to get to the bottom of this and find out what's going on as soon as possible!

Everyone is alerted for the Prince's safety. The dragon's sudden outburst has caught everyone off guard and there is a sense of panic and fear in the air. The dragon is huge and powerful - it's clear that it could cause immense damage if allowed to rampage.trying to break the barrier Everyone is desperately trying to come up with a plan and figure out how to stop the dragon. The situation is chaotic and unpredictable, and everyone is unsure what the best course of action is. But everyone knows that something needs to be done and done quickly. They have the same goal in mind: protect the Prince no matter what it takes.

The Prince is patiently waiting for the dragon's attack with an unbothered expression on his face. He seems completely unfazed by the impending danger and his face shows no signs of fear or anxiety. He appears totally calm and collected, and gives off a sense of strength and bravery. His expression suggests that he feels completely prepared to face the dragon and take it down if necessary, and his confidence is calming and reassuring. The fact that he is not showing any signs of fear or apprehension about this imminent ordeal is definitely comforting for those around him, and gives all of them a sense of security and trust.

“I have to save earl!”I said in panicked as I run towards earl, however I felt someone grabbed my hands as Nior takes the sword from my back and rushes towards the dragon's direction. I have no idea how Nior plans to take on the dragon alone, and I'm afraid of what we're walking into.

My heart is racing and I feel panicked, but I can't let my feelings get the best of me. We have to stay calm and think rationally about what to do next.

I watch, horrified as the dragon falls hard to the ground with a loud crash, causing an explosion that covers everything around with smoke and dust.

Nior takes a deep breath. He takes a step forward and with one swift movement, he thrusts his sword into the dragon's neck and the mighty beast falls to the ground.

I glanced behind my back only to see and before I knew it, The knights circle in around us pointing as sword and spear as Granger kneels on the ground and gazes wide-eyed at Nior, whose sword is pointed straight at Earl

My eyes wind ended in disbelief as Nior had killed the dragon and pointed the sword at the Prince .

Granger is on his knees, looking up at him with fear and awe. The knights are all around, watching the scene unfold with anticipation and anxiety.

The sense of urgency and danger in the air is palpable, and everyone can feel the tension building. Nior is on the brink of committing something unimaginable in front of everyone - will he go through with it?

No one knows what will happen in the next few moments, and they're all holding each other's Breath as they watch the scene unfold before them.

“this can’t be real!!” I'm scared and shocked by what I'm seeing - what is going to come next?! 

Why is Nior acting like this?
