Here's the prologue to my novel-ish thingy xD Please read and help me edit <33~

Prologue- Daru’s Never-ending Nightmare

Daru sat by himself on the deserted playground. Swinging…Swinging….Swinging. The young orc cried as he fell off the swing. Wood chips scraped his knee and his arm was badly bruised from trying to protect himself from the fall. The pain was everywhere; it seemed to run through his body. Soon, numbness came and he could do nothing but cry. His tears flooded his face and a single tear touched the ground. No one heard him; no one could hear his cries. His parents were a mile away and his servants lingered far. No orc child who was smart would go near the sorcerer’s son. The sorcerer, Daru’s father, was the most powerful orc man in the city. Even the king himself stayed away unless it couldn’t be avoided.
Daru sighed; he was destined to be alone. Not one person understood him in this world, not one person could cure this eternal ache. Struggling to stand up, he noticed he was not alone. Standing before him was a paled skin beast that had long flowing hair. What was she? Was it even a she? Daru panicked as he realized that what was standing here in front of him was not a beast, but a human. He ran, heading for his home, only looking back to see if the human had followed him. She had indeed followed young Daru and there was no escape. He screamed for help and to alert the townspeople of the evil temptress that had breached their inner city, but no one came to help him. They were all so much more afraid of Daru than the human; they would rather have nothing to do with the sorcerer’s son than to get rid of the human.
The young orc ran into his home, thinking that it was his sanctuary. The human did not follow him in, but rather patiently stood outside. Daru searched the three story building for his parents. It took over ten minutes to find them, but as he opened the door of the library on the third floor, he saw his parents sitting peacefully and reading spell books.
“Mother… Father…” He murmured softly by the door.
“Daru? Why are you bothering us in this important studying moment?” His mother asked, quite irritated.
“Yes, why Daru?” His father said, obviously annoyed as well.
“A human is outside…” Daru said even softer.
“What was that, Daru? You didn’t say ‘human’ did you?” His mother’s face was serious now.
“Human…outside.” Daru said a little louder this time.
Daru’s parents both got up at the same time. They walked over to the window. They gaped at what they saw. Without even a wink of hesitation, Daru’s parents ran down the stairs and out of the door. Daru only caught a glimpse of their stern faces as they proceeded out of the mansion. Soon, his parents stood face to face with the human. Daru watched from the third floor, opening the window so he could hear the conversation.
“Orc sorcerer, you have come out from your hiding place, I see.” The human female smiled slightly as she spoke to Daru’s parents.
“Leave this place. You, a human, have no right here.” Daru’s father spoke with a solemn voice.
“Do you not know who I am? Calling me a …I’m not just a human.” The female spoke again.
“Then who are you?” Daru’s mother spoke with a trembling voice.
“Hirasa. Goddess of the Healers, Queen of the Mages.” The female said in an unchanging tone. “And I was hereby ordered to assassinate the evil orc sorcerer of the other side.”
“You-“
“Goodbye, Kaynia Kostcha of the West Tribe.” Daru heard the female say a quick spell and before he realized what was happening, his mother was dead.
“Goodbye-“
“Noo!” Daru shouted from the third story building. “Father, defend yourself!”
“Your father was foolish; he did not protect himself with a magical barrier. He’s in a trance now, I’m afraid.” Harisa grinned devilishly. “You, young boy, have better behave yourself in the future. If not, I might just come for you.”
“Please! Leave my father-“
“Arisha-Good Bye Dorilen Baktca of the West Tribe.” Harisa was emotionless as she said the words for another death. Daru’s father dropped to the floor. Daru ran down the stairs filled with tears, he ran and faced the wretched human.
“No, no, no, no, no!” Daru cried. He leapt towards Harisa.
“See ya, Daru Baktca!” Harisa began her teleportation spell with her book open.
“STOP!” He reached Harisa and grabbed onto her, but it was too late, Harisa slowly faded into thin air and Daru could do nothing but wait for the nightmare to end.
The moment Harisa was fully gone, Daru collapsed to the floor tears streaming down his face. He stared angrily at the place where Harisa had been. He noticed a white book shining there with a crescent purple gleam...
“Mother…Father…I will avenge you…”
