– World’s Edge –
The Queen recalled the first time she laid eyes on the Cloaked Man. Back then he had seemed so calming and serene, but this was not the case on this occasion. The Figure’s cloak seemed to be tattered and torn, more angular, and his stance, far more menacing than inviting. He looked like he had gone through quite a journey since the last time they met.
The green light she had seen coming from the trees and plants surrounded him, almost dripping off of his body. When he spoke the light began to form shapes. She saw a place outside the Kingdom, over the Hexa Hills, through the Wave Forest, across the Golden River and Micro Dessert. all the way to the World’s Edge. The only spot in the Greater World where a man could reach the end of reality. This is where you’ll find the Sphere Vortex, and this where you’ll find your King’s killer. Inside the Dark Kingdom.
The Queen told the Cloaked Man that she couldn’t leave behind all the people of her kingdom. The Cloaked Man simply smiled and suggested that maybe her newest Immortal Knight might be up for the challenge.
Back in his room the Skull Prince awoke from a dream about a glowing blue sword to find a very large bearded Immortal Knight sitting in his bedroom. The Prince was puzzled, but for some reason he had a sudden urge for adventure.
– Saint August –
The Queen sat alone in the courtyard. Everyone had left long ago, but she couldn’t bring herself to move. She just stared at the ground. She did this for hours. Slowly it got darker, and darker, until the Queen could barely make out the patch of ground she had been staring at for so long. Just before all the color was about to leave the courtyard, a green light illuminated the spot in which her eyes were fixed. The Queen first recognized the source as a leaf, but the leaf also seamed to be growing, sprouting limbs at an incredible pace. She now noticed these plants were growing all over the courtyard, and had become quite large. Within a matter of moments the trees were already completely over her head and surrounding her.
For the first time since she walked down the steps of the tower, The Queen felt like she could move again. The trees seemed to form a path, so she followed that path for a distance that seemed impossible for such a small courtyard. Eventually she came upon a clearing. In the clearing there was an immense open space with a lone tree in the exact center. As The Queen approached the tree she noticed that hidden in the shade was a sword that had been thrust into the earth. When she went up and touched it the leaves began to rustle and the roots and braches shot back into the earth. Where the tree once was, there now stood only a cloaked figure. A figure she recognized. The Queen found a strange fascination in the thought that this figure had only once before become present to her. The day she first said Hello to her Husband, and now he returns, just after the last Goodbye.
– Skull Queen –
It had been 3 days since the death of her husband and king. She had never truly understood everything he had done for the kingdom until he was gone, and now that he was, it all fell on her shoulders.
The Queen put her normal crown aside for today and placed the black crown on her head, because today was not a normal day. As she walked out her door, and down the long hall, all the sound in the room slowly faded away as the onlookers fell silent.
As she stepped up to the thrones she reached down to the table for the spherical container that sat between them. Inside the container resided the only remaining piece of her husband.
She placed her hand into the sphere and without even touching it, the snowflake started to move with her. She turned around, and with the snowflake floating above her open palm she began to walk back down the hall. As she walked all the drummers of the immortal army began to play along with one lone woman who had begun to sing.
Everyone followed her as she walked. They followed her down the hall. They followed her across the courtyard. They followed her to the tallest tower, and all the way up the winding stairs to very top of the tower. As the singer concluded her sad tune, The Queen raised her open palm to the sky and she felt whatever had been bonding the snowflake to her, release itself, and slowly the snowflake began to ascend into the sky.
