DESTINY’S RULE: AWAKENING

 DESTINY’S RULE: AWAKENING (4th Installment)2014

I hide in an enclosure made by trees that have fallen onto one another, making a space wide enough that I could hide in and not be seen. As the guardsmen slowly search the area, I pray to the Goddess that they do not find where I am hiding. If I can only make it to the caves, I will be a safe.

“Search the whole area! She cannot have gone far, if we do not bring him someone back…..” The Guardsmen scans the area.”Someone will pay for our failure.” The Guardsmen dismount to search the area thoroughly, leaving nothing overlooked.   The Guardsmen get closer to my hiding spot, thrusting their sword through the think brush around the base of the trees. Suddenly a sword tip rips through the top of my hiding place barely missing me. Another one comes through at a different angle, slicing my gambeson. I don’t make a sound, hoping the next one does not go through me. Nothing happens, and I hear them moving further away. I wait a little while longer, making sure that they won’t double back. I peek through the branches, checking to see if it was clear. No one is around and I quietly remove myself from my hiding place. I run towards the caves just on the other side of the clearing. I slowly approach the opening, calling out to  whomever is on guard duty know it is me and not one of the guardsmen.

“Sharra, you made it!” I am engulfed in a hug by my brother.

“Yes, but we need to move deeper into the cave.  There are Gaurdsmen on the other side of the clearing.” I keep my arm around him as I relay the news to him.

“We were waiting for you, everyone else is deeper inside.” I follow him as he moves deeper inside the cave.

The cave was actually an old abandoned mine, left behind after it’s riches had been taken from it. Calum and me explored every inch of this mine growing up hoping to find something that others had overlooked.

“Did Father and mother make it to the caves?”

“Yes, they are inside, helping with those that are hurt.” Calum ducks his head, barely missing the top of the entryway.

DESTINY’S RULE: AWAKENING (3RD INSTALLMENT)

dragon%20and%20witchAs I skirt around the edge of the village, I watch as flames devour the houses of my loved ones and those that I call friends litter the ground and screams echo around me. I can only help those now who make it to the caves, and try to figure out why they are targeting me?

Why am I the one they are looking for?

Why do I have these voices in my head? I know I am not crazy!

I have no magical abilities, so I cannot be the one they are looking for. I have never lived anywhere else but here with my family.

“My dear Sharra. You are the one they are looking for, and you do have magic. You have magic beyond belief. You are the one who can find the Lost Kingdom.” the voice in my head explains.

No.! I am no one. I cannot be the one they want.” I scream silently to no one.

Yes, you are. Your true parents, who ruled the Lost Kingdom, had you secreted away during the mage wars. They knew you would be an important part to it’s future. They found the Nogard family and placed you with them. They then wiped the event from there mind and planted a false memory of your birth.”

“All this time my life has been a lie!” I sit down on a stump in stunned disbelief.

“No dear, It has been your salvation.” the voice in my head replies.

I hear rustling off to my right and I pull my sword, waiting as I slowly hide behind the tree behind me.

“Have you made any progress in finding the girl?”

“No Sir. We thought she was in a village in the Northern Kingdom, but there was no one her age.” The Enforcer kneels down in front of the man sitting on the throne.

“Have you checked the caves in the northern region?” He leans back and steeples his fingers under his chin.

“I have men looking into it now my Lord. If they find her they are to bring to you immediately.”

“I can’t have her ruin my plans. If you fail, you forfeit your life.” He rises and walks by the enforcer. “Don’t fail me.” He continues to walk out of the room.

I was going to type some more up, but I fell asleep when I came home from work. I will try and have some more for you tomorrow.

Here is something I am working on. I thought I would post it and get your opinion. It is a fantasy novel, with magic and dragons. I am still working things out with the story and the world building, so be patient with me.

CHAPTER 1

“ SHARRA, WATCH YOUR BACK!”

 Sharra glances over her shoulder and sees two enforcers closing in on her. Notching an arrow in her bow Sharra aims at the closest enforcer, before the arrow finds it’s mark she has a second one ready and lets it loose to kill the second enforcer.

 “Callum, where are Mother and Father?” she yells to be heard above the noise.

 “They were heading for the caves.”  Callum replies over his shoulder, as he was fighting with an enforcer.

 “ Why are we being attacked?”

 “Apparently they are searching every village for a girl who can do magic.” he blocks an attack.

 “ Why are they doing this?” she sweeps the legs out from under her attacker and slashes at his belly.

 “ You remember the prophecy of The Lost Kingdom?”

 “Yes, but that is only a tale told by the Elders.”

 “Apparently , Veldahar takes it seriously.”

 Sharra looks out at the village, seeing the death and destruction of her people.  Homes burning, family and friends dead, because of one mans greed. Shaking off the feeling of fear, Sharra starts to slowly work her way through the hoard of enforcers.

 “Callum, the village is lost.  I’ll meet you at the gathering place with any survivors.”

 “ Be careful Sharra who’s to say that you are not the one they are looking for.”  Callum looks at her with a smile on his face.

 “Yeah, right .  I am not the one true ruler, that will bring peace to the land.”

 “ Just be careful. I don’t want to lose you.”

 Sharra hugs her brother and runs off searching for any survivors.  Hearing the cries of those she is unable to help.

“ Sharra dear.”

 Sharra stops and listens, trying to figure out where the voice came from.  For there was no one around. “ I must be going crazy.” Sharra mumbles to herself.

“ No dear, you are not going crazy.”

 “If I am not going crazy, then why am I talking to a voice in my head?”

 “Because dear, you can not see us yet.”

 “Us?” Sharra shakes her head in disbelief, still not sure that she is not going crazy.

 “Yes dear, us. The Elders of the Lost Kingdom.”

 “That is just a myth.” Sharra circles around a boulder to avoid detection from any enforcers.

 “No, we are not a myth. We are very much a reality.”

 “If the Lost Kingdom is true, then who are they trying to find?”

“Why you dear.”

“Me.” Sharra asks in disbelief.

 “Yes, You. For you are the true ruler of the Lost Kingdom.” The voice replies.

 “This can not be, for I do not know any magic.”

 “Yes, you do. How else could we be talking to you.”
