Howie balanced the tray carefully as he walked towards the others, his brow furrowed in concentration as to not drop it.
"Here," He said as he began to hand the tea out.

"Thank you." Sonno said formally as he accepted the tea.
"Hehe, Sonno, why are you so formal with us? You are our friend." Angie said cheerfully as she took a sip of her tea.
Sonno took a sip of his tea and didn't reply.
It was nearly a month since he had first met these three and he had been hanging out with them everyday....am I their friend? He thought as he looked at them and realized he had come to really like spending time with them.
"I miss Remus, " Angie said wistfully as she looked at the lake, "I wonder when we'll go back."

A slow grin spread across Sonno's face, "Do you guys wanna see a cool place?"

3 hours earlier:

"Make sure to tell the cook to pack light sandwiches," Rakhmini ordered the servant who had come to inform them of a picnic being organised. "I so detest eating heavily in the afternoon, " the servant bowed and left the room.

Adela was sitting in front of the mirror, as the maids worked on styling her hair. "Oh, when will we be done with work? I want to go to Vera's country-side house. I heard the duke's son will be attending the party, he is a heartthrob," she gushed, her beautiful face alighting with excitement.

Rakhmini nodded, "This place is so decidedly boring with strange people at every corner. That doctor asked me to accompany him to the market."

"Oh, the one who keeps staring at the neck while he speaks?" Adela shuddered. "I hope we don't see much of him."

Present...

Imperatrice walked into the corridor where Doc Love and the female vampire were looming over the unconscious Adela and Rakhmini. Veralior, hiding behind a corner, wanted to scream to warn the Saligian queen but a hand covered her mouth. She realized that Novula and Crissa were behind her. Novula motioned with a finger to his lips for her to be quiet.
"What's going on?" demanded Imperatrice.
"We're here to spread the good news of the Faith," praised Doc Love in a monotone voice. "Join us, Your Majesty."
"I'd rather die," she spat.
"That can be arranged," said the female vampire, Esther Jih Nasca.
Nasca took a dagger from her kimono and stabbed Imperatrice in the heart. Imperatrice coughed a few times before falling down dead. Veralior gasped.
"Let's get out of here," said Nasca.
Nasca snapped her fingers and a portal appeared. Doc Love dragged Adela and Rakhmini through the portal. As Nasca walked into the portal last, the portal closed.
"They killed her," cried Veralior.
"Killed who?" asked a voice.
"The queen," sobbed Veralior.
Veralior stopped. She recognized that voice. She turned around to see Imperatrice standing next to Novula.

"Sure," said Howie.
Sonno led the group to an abandoned cabin. Sonno fished a strange key from his pocket and inserted it into the keyhole. When he opened the door, the door revealed a large room inside. The key had turned the doorway into a portal. He led Howie, Angie, and Parker inside. They warped to God's Bastion.

'Novula, you can teleport, right?' Crissa asked. Novula nodded and Crissa continued. 'We need to go after the princesses; they've gone.'

'Where?' asked Novula.

'Can't you just focus on one of them and teleport?'

They teleported.
Posted 12/25/10
Veralior felt sick in her stomach. She remembered being put back into emptiness, falling through a black hole of unknown depth and spinning all the way down before hitting hard cold floor. Rubbing her head, she got up unsteadily.

"of all places, you have to teleport us here!" veralior heard a familiar female voice.

"Well, how would I have known where the two princesses had gone?" a sarcastic, unknown male voice retorted.

"now now. We must think of how to get out of here before they find us," a strong female voice requested, though it sounded more like an order to Veralior.

Veralior looked around and saw Crissa, Novula and the Queen standing together, staring daggers at the other. Tensions running high and Veralior could not bear with all the sudden movements anymore. She began crying. The Saligian Queen quickly stooped down to carry her.

"now now, dear. DOn't be too frightened. I'm sure we can find a way out..."

Crissa sneered. "Right after we figure out how to escape from the kitchens of this booby trap full castle. Seriously, I wanted to be teleported out of the castle. NOT out of the ROOM."

Desmond sat in Elizabeth’s room until she fell asleep, as he usually does since Elizabeth won’t sleep without him near. Desmond quietly left her chambers and walked down the dark hallway, noticing some mice running down the hall, “I should tell the servants to place poison out for these pests, but first, I must deal with a much bigger pest” said Desmond as he disappeared around the corner. In the throne room, a hooded man waited for the servants to finish cleaning before he dared to move. When they finally left, he jumped down and ran towards the doorway behind the throne, which lead directly to where Elizabeth was sleeping, when he reached the door, he heard a whisper in his ear, “You’re good at staying hidden, but I’m better” said the voice, the assassin turned quickly, but Desmond was faster as he swung his sword towards the assassin.
*****************
The next morning one of the servants noticed Desmond standing at the doorway, “Sir Desmond? Why are you here? Shouldn’t you go wake Lady Elizabeth?” said the servant as she placed some documents near the throne for Elizabeth. Desmond turned, I woke up early and noticed a smug on the doorway, could you please tell the cleaning crew to be a bit more observant?” said Desmond in a friendly voice with a smile. The servant blushed and bowed, “Yes sir, I will informed them when they wake up” said the servant as she scurried out of the throne room. Desmond stood up and dropped the cloth he was using and wiped a spot on the ground with his foot. He picked up the cloth and looked at the blood he clean off the ground, “Almost missed a spot” said Desmond as he went to wake Elizabeth.

Desmond buttered Elizabeth's toast for her, as she sat there, yawning and sipping juice.
The tray was laden with eggs, sausages bacon, muffins, toast, jellies, butter and breakfast rolls along with coffee, juice and hot chocolate.
Desmond carefully prepared a plate for her. She was excessively picky about her food and he made sure everything was to her liking.
He set the plate in front of her then picked up another plate and started making a plate for himself for Elizabeth liked it when he ate with her.
"Had a good sleep?" he asked her as they ate breakfast.
"mhmm, because you were here," she gave him an innocent, trusting smile.
He returned her smile and resumed eating.

As Desmond and Elizabeth ate, Elizabeth looked at Desmond, “You woke me up 5 minutes early today, did you sleep well?” asked Elizabeth and she took another bit of toast. Desmond smiled, “Of course, the sun woke me up early” said Desmond with a smile, when they finished eating , Desmond took a handkerchief out of his front pocket and wiped Elizabeth’s face with it, “You’ve always been such a messy eater, it very unlady like” said Desmond, Playfully, Elizabeth bit at Desmond, “You’ve always been a very clean eater, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a crumb on your plate before said Elizabeth as she looked at his plate. Desmond smiled and collected the dishes and placed them on the cart. Desmond walked over to the wall next to the door and pulled one of the strings, “I’ve summoned the maids to help you get ready, I will make your bed as you are bathing” said Desmond as he helped Elizabeth out of bed, “Its going to be a busy day today, so please look your best” said Desmond with a smile.

Elizabeth sat in the throne as the villagers formed a line, waiting to speak to her.
She yawned, it was hard to focus when you don't get that 5 minutes of sleep.
Desmond stood by her side, listening intently to the woes of the people.
Suddenly Elizabeth became aware of a very pretty girl who was helping her mother to the throne.
She saw as the girl stared shyly at Desmond who smiled kindly at her.
Elizabeth sat up, watching them
Desmond's smile was warmer than to other people. Elizabeth's teeth gritted, her hands tightening on her staff.
The girl shyly tucked her hair behind her ear as she spoke shyly to Desmond.
Too pretty...much too pretty... Elizabeth's face was twisting in jealousy.
Desmond listened to her plea and then the mother and daughter walked away.
"I'm done." Elizabeth stood up.
"You are?" Desmond looked at her. The session had just started.
Without another word, Elizabeth descended the steps and walked away.
Leaving the people to murmur piteously behind her.
"Please be patient. She will return after she has rested." Desmond assured them then went after her.

Desmond walked behind Elizabeth as she walked down the hall, “I don’t like it” said Elizabeth. “You don’t like what?” asked Desmond as she turned to look at him, “This kingdom is full of beautiful people, far more beautiful then me” said Elizabeth as she bit her bottom lip. Desmond walked up to her and smiled, “Beauty is a matter of opinion, what’s beautiful to one might be hideous the another” said Desmond. Elizabeth looked away, “What about me?” as Elizabeth as she glanced at Desmond, who smiled, grabbed her hand and kissed it, “You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever set my eyes on” said Desmond as he looked out the window. He opened the window and let the warm summer breeze in, “It’s a little stuffy in here, perhaps we should open the windows to let the air in” said Desmond, Elizabeth took out her fan and started fanning herself, hiding her blush. “Fine, but once its to hot, we close them” said Elizabeth. Desmond nodded and walked back to Elizabeth, “Shall we return to your subjects?” said Desmond as he started to walked with her back to the throne room.

Elizabeth nodded and Desmond led her back.
She attended the rest of the meeting and then ended session, heading back to her room.

"There is a party invitation from one of the houses, " Desmond said, holding up an envelope.
"Open it," Elizabeth said as she sat, the maids taking out one of her less fancy dresses that she wore at home.

Desmond waited outside as Elizabeth got changed, reading the letter.

It had been a week since the disbandment of Faith and the death of the Prophet, Shiseiten's Max Weber. The international incidents at the Tower of Babel in Ehlerdahl, the Palace of Suzaku at Remus, and the Azuriyan Tower in Azuriya had caused quite the outroar in the Federation. Nations were threatening to leave the union. What came at an even worse timing was the assassination of Federation President Hansen. However, the Vice President, Valentine, took control of things and managed to minimize the damage caused by Faith. Stressed with work, he didn't get a change to return to Invidia Isle until a week after.
Mattheau was still in a coma. While Valentine was away, Rosseau nursed Aventh. The Guardian of Aphellion had received some major injuries but magic had healed a lot of it. All that reminded Aventh of his olympic fight with Rick and Nina was a small limp and a cast encasing his left arm.

"So, now what?" asked Aventh. "Rosseau said that you wanted me to stay around for a while. I'm guessing you wanted to talk to me."

"That is true," acknowledged Valentine. "However, you also needed time to heal. Now, the Federation is divided amongst hostile tension between leaders. A hiearchy with the Federation President on top is not favorable by many national leaders. I'm thinking of forming a council consisting of the nations' leadders. What do you think?" Valentine didn't even give Aventh a chance to speak. He washed down a shot of champagne and began talking again. "This is not what we need right now. Not with the Third Rise coming soon."

"The Uzkul are a threat yes, but I already have the alliance taking precautions to strengthen there army" Aventh said with a smile "But it is true, with the federation falling a part it may become difficult to build a strong enough resistance, the devastation the second rise caused was enormous, and if we can not stop the third rise quickly there wont be much left of Aphellion"

"Uzkul, and army of chaos and darkness, The name Uzkul is believed to originate from the fable called Epitaph of Aion" Valentine said

"It is true, the Uzkul are Chaotic, but the army is not a army of Chaos, it is the Army of Chaos" Aventh said taking a seat in a chair

"The? are you saying Chaos takes on a form other than what we know it to be?" Valentine questioned

"Im saying exactly that, it takes on the form of a body of energy with the ability to think, it is the one who came up with the name Uzkul though why it named the army chaos Uzkul is up for debate, but my best guess would be to make its army's name feared throughout all realms... not just our own" Aventh said "But when they are to appear I can not be sure, I predict within the next few years... at most if we are lucky"

Valentine tapped his own forehead. "Don't forget you weren't the only one who made contact with the Akashic Records in the fight to destroy Lucifer. Mattheau was the catalyst that gave birth to the paradox, the anti-existence that forms the copied fragment of the Akashic Records that resides in your head. Small sigbits flow in my head, as in Mattheau's, though a smaller fraction that you received. However, ours comes from the Akashic Records themselves, our 'fragments' birthing with our Stigmas. Be certain of this: the Akashic Records predict the Third Rise of the Uzkul. They will be here within the decade."

"Well, I was close enough, anyways, do you have any ideas on how to fix this problem with the federation?" Aventh asked "I'm... curious as to what you have planned, if you don't have anything planned I think I could help you out with a few ideas I have"

Valentine grinned. "I'm surprised at you, Aventh. I didn't think you were a man of politics. Come now, let's hear of your plan."
Before Aventh could start, Rosseau stormed into the room.
"Val, Aventh, Mattheau's awakened!" announced Rosseau.
Valentine, Aventh, and Rosseau rushed into Mattheau's room. Valentine's twin sat upwards in his bed. His eyes spoke of drowsiness and confusion.
"What happened?" asked Mattheau.
"You've been in a coma for a month," informed Valentine. "Le Canzoni di Morte captured you. Imperatrice has finally taken her place as the rightful ruler of Saligia. Don't worry. Le Canzoni di Morte's disbanded. Nero is missing."
"Don't count on that to last long," said Aventh. "He's probably scheming something in some hole somewhere." He paused. "It makes no sense why he left like that. Le Canzoni di Morte were the backbone of the Federation's authority over the nations. With it gone, there was nothing to fear."
"Could we find out from Imperatrice?" suggested Mattheau.
"Like that would go well," said Valentine. "Both you and me are hated. She doesn't care for Rosseau either. Aventh, how about you talk to her? She might listen to you."
"Why would she listen to me?" asked Aventh. "I use to be her enemy."
"Key word 'was'. Imperatrice's loyalties are to Saligia alone, not to Le Canzoni di Morte. As a hero of the free nations, you carry some weight."
"Not to mention being the Guardian of Aphellion," said Rosseau. "Carrying the Mark of Light and all..." He stopped, looking at Mattheau.
Mattheau stared at his sheets. "Aventh," he said, "what is going to happen to me, the bearer of the Mark of Darkness?"

Aventh gave a sigh "As of now the Mark of Darkness is an anti-existence that is needed, and it seems to be more or less subdued due to being incomplete, I will try and complete the Mark of Darkness within you and then with the power of the Mark of Light remove it from your body all together and then break it into smaller fractions that I will then spread across Aphellion... as to how completing the Mark of Darkness within you will affect you is unknown, but it is needed to be completed before I can remove it from you, so I will be keeping an eye on you" Aventh said "Rosseau, can I trust you to keep an eye on Matt for me?"

"I don't mind, I planned to do it from the start" Rosseau said

The room feel silent for a second until valentine broke the silence "Well now that, that is sorted out, Matt why dont you get some rest, and Aventh, would you be willing to go and talk to Imperatrice?"

"I suppose it would be our best option right now" Aventh said stretching out his right arm, his left arm still in a sling "Though ill probably need some better clothes, something a bit flashy to gain attention but not over bearing as to out weigh Imperatrice's casual wear, but it should be unique to signify that I am not just a politician but a renowned hero"

"I was thinking just the same, I think I may have some clothes for you that you can borrow, but before we get you ready we need to discuss what you will be talking to her about... and I probably need to teach you a bit on how politics are handled, this is a delicate situation and I would rather not have any screw ups" Valentine said with a smirk

"I believe I have the politic's part down, I am well versed in- Before Aventh could finish he was cut off my Valentine

"Militaristic politics, not table politics, and with that I will end our little debate, come we have much planning to do" Valentine said leaving the room

"Ahaha" Aventh chuckled lightly with a smile "I guess he got me there" Aventh said turning around, but before he left the room completely he stopped and without looking back at Matt or Rosseau said "Matt, it is best you do not dwell on me with the Light and you being the Darkness, get some well deserved rest... you will need it" and with that Aventh disappeared form the room.
