"It seems like everywhere I go, people around me get hurt. First my home, then Samwell, and even the priest. Where has my life gone? I was once a Tzarian Warrior, the mightiest of my village. I'm nothing anymore, no warrior, not even a woman. I'm just a coward." Liliana continued to ramble on as she came upon a cliff, overlooking a small village below. She watched from above as she observed the people down below. It was a quiet town, but everyone was happy. Children were playing in the tall grass, as the adults were doing field work. The wives were cooking fresh venison inside, Liliana could smell the smoking meat from above. She laid her head down in the soft grass, and began to inhale the mesmerizing aroma. She took a deep breath, and exhaled. And for the first time in awhile, she felt relaxed. He long and flowing red hair swayed with the wind as she rested, it was only then that she began to hear the voice... Their was a tall figure heading toward the village, the same figure from before. Liliana had never seen it before, and she could not look away. Even though she never saw it before, she knew something bad was heading to the village. For the first time in a long while, she unsheathed her sword, and wondered if she could stop it. She stood up, still pondering the idea of heroism. "I could still be a warrior, I don't have to give up, this is my fate. I choose my own path, not anyone else." She spoke to herself. "I don't need Sam to fight my battles for me. I was strong before I met him, and I'm strong now." The cries of the figure began to get louder and louder as it approached the village. "ANGUISH, MARLENE, LOST, DESPERATION, DESPAIR. " Over and over the shadowy figure repeated the words as it made it's way into the small village. Liliana dropped her sword in agony, something was wrong inside of her. The tall being somehow made a way to make every one around it feel the pain it felt. That pain was too much, and some people couldn't take it. People began to shed tears, as the figure continued through the village. It never looked at anyone in the face, it just hovered through the small town. It wasn't flying, just hovering..... People wanted to help it, but they couldn't because they were stricken with an overwhelming amount of melancholy, they began to end their own lives. These innocent people were going through the same fate as the village before. Suicide was the only relief for these people, and whose to blame? Is it the pain and suffering that passed through their lives, is that enough to make people end their own lives? Does the blood pools that drowned the poor village make them weak, or does it make them human. The Despair finally moved on through the village, this time looking back on what it had done to those people. Does it know what it's doing? Is it sorry for the lives it has taken? It continued on, still searching..... but for what, or who? Liliana had shed so many tears that she had made a small mud puddle beneath her feet. She wasn't close enough to get every feeling the being let out. She was barely spared, she could've easily taken her life. She wiped her eyes and continued on, she still didn't know where she was going, she just walked. Looking back on a another horrific event. Was this her only destiny, witnessing death and murder. Is suicide her only way out, and if it is, will she take it?......

Chapter 13: Just A Dream
"I've missed you.... Brother.."
"Who said that?"
"Its me, James. You couldn't forget your eldest brother now could you?"
"Where are you?"
"I'm where I've always been..... with you. I never left you brother..."
" I thought you died.... back home?"
"You kept me alive, I'm living through you now. I'm the rage living deep inside of you.
I'm the reason you changed.... the reason you live on today... we are one, like it or not."
"I don't understand, James. I thought you never liked me. I was always mistreated.."
"It was nothing more than jealousy, love and hate as one. I knew you were special,
From the beginning."
" I don't......"
"Its okay if you're confused brother, you just have to live with it. You want the power, and
I'm going to give it to you. We have always had something in common, our anger. I could always see it in you, because I was just as angry. Now we have the chance to really be one, as a family. Just promise me you won't forget me, don't forget your home, don't forget your brothers.... I have to go now, but I will return when you need me. "
" James wait, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT! "
Samwell was awaken as he was shouting for his brother, Lannis and Calebb stood over him with concern. "What did you see..."
Sam replied.... "Nothing... it was just a dream....."
Chapter 12: The Barbarian King
"So.... What town is this?" Calebb asked Lannis. "I'm glad you asked, this is the great city of Rarehaven. Sam, I've brought you, not only to learn, but to help find your way. I'm an old man, and a heavy drinker, I probably don't have as much time as you. But I will take advantage of my time, to help you achieve your ultimate goals." Lannis said with a smile.
"So whats the plan, Lannis?"
"You're going to kill the Barbarian King...." Lannis responded still with the same smile on his face.
Chapter 11: To Learn
"I'm impressed that you killed the Wolfman, that should not have been such an easy task, especially for a boy. But now, you've changed, you've grown, you've matured." Uncle Lannis spoke..
Chapter 10: The Despair
The village of Riverwood, the small community of fishers and farmers was one of the most joyful places to live in O'Leus. Many people would come here to rest, a place to forget all of their troubles. It was isolated. No one around for miles. Today, there was something different in the air, the townsfolk were all outside.... listening. They all could here a faint cry, repeating itself over and over. The words they were hearing didn't make any sense to them. It was becoming louder and louder as the day passed on by. They had saw the source of the loud cries. The shadowy figure stood tall, even taller than some of the surrounding trees.
Chapter 9: "Too Far"
"You're glad we're free Felix?" Amadeus asked his brother. "Of course I am, now its time for us to eat." He answered.
"Look over that ridge, it looks like a small village. They should have food there."
Felix lead his brothers into the village, there was no name for this establishment, seeing how small it was. There was farms and fresh veggies, with a lots of freshly steamed venison waiting to be devoured. Just how far would they go.... or how far would HE go...
