CHAPTER ONE The water tumbled through the dark night sky, the sparkling stars raining down pure silver, striking his blood stained face as he charged thoughtfully down through the enclosing alleyways, his heart pumping faster, faster. He stopped suddenly his chest throbbing in pain, his mind an array of thoughts, where could he go, who could he trust. He stared around panic rushing through him; the memories of the night tainted his mind, tainted his soul. Blood gushed from his wounds a river running off his face, his time was running ever shorter, only one thing could save the magic, only one thing could change what had happened, he knew what he must do as he ran off into the tumbling rain. Slowly he came to a stop the blood drenched his clothes, stained in deep red blood dripping onto the cold earth as he stood within the Emerald Park, a pillar rose before him. He stared at its glowing light that emitted radiating silver the magic rising within his soul a connection between heart, mind and body. It rose from within the magic of the ages, white light launched spears from his fingers striking the tall pillar. The Pillar shone brighter, lancing silver light over the land, “Magic of the ages, emit your purity, Esteron arise,” He coughed blood while spoke “Cast the spear of light” As from within his robes he brought a sword, and in one sharp push he placed the sword in the pillar. He felt the earth tremor beneath him slightly as the pillar erupted bright spears of magic across the land, and slowly he collapsed on the cold wet grass. Across the distant plains the armies had met, battle cries sounded across the savannah, metal clashed sharp raw sound. The floor was red stained with the blood of the races alike, arrows rained down on them, cries of pain echoed out across the plain as people died all around fighting to save the men, women, and children of the races the goodness in life. The armies of the spirits were gaining land thriving on the souls of men. Suddenly silence shrouded the land as white light flowed over the land passing through the armies of spirits pushing them back into the barrier of the Esteron' s magic. Slowly the men of the spirits returned their lives restored. The man lay there he was gone, he could feel it, the blood was still flowing from his body, but he was weak. His strength was leaving him as he stared up at the night sky, he had saved the races, but not himself, at least soon he would see his foregone one. Suddenly in the sky a white being hung motionless staring at him. “What are you? Leave I am gone, take the sword to the kings for I am no more, I am gone.” He choked on his words, pain leaving him, he was dead, he was gone. “Enron Dwinon, I am past, present, future, I am the soul of magic, I am the crafter of the sword.” Spoke a girls voice, as the white angel like figure hung before him, ”You have won Enron, we have won the magic lives on, life lives on, you live on, for you will not die this night, you must aid the most powerful magic since the Equidorians coming” “What, I'm Dead, leave” He spoke his strength gone, he lay back on the damp grass closing his heavy eyes, the pain began to ease slowly as he lay drawing his last long breath “Goodbye....” The man stood there, his eyes snapped open lost in the deep thought of the images that had just flooded past him, the memory he thought so distant buried in his distant past was for ever his, as clear as the day it had occurred. He stood there pondering this thought standing upon the soft shore of the Myris Lake, as the sun glimmered off the surface low in the sky. Light was fading as it flowed over the lake a river of light running from the distant horizon. The waters rippled slight in the wind as it breathed another breath. Through the sky shifted the light, white, fluffy, clouds of spring birth. He had been there for days thinking, thinking of times past, thinking of times present, thinking of times that may come or may not, thinking. He knew for he had seen it. He had seen the many past generations through his eyes. Yet he was that of a thirty year old un-aged since his beginning. He remembered the destruction of his friends at the fall of the Equinox, He remembered the arts of the Equidorian magic, He remembered the losing of the four great magic's, along with the greatest of all.
