Re: Guardians of Light (RP)
Realm of Light/Great Castle of the Queen
Daarke bowed his head to the Queen of the Light as he entered the throne room. There were fifty guards stationed on each side of the room, all of them unmoving, so one would think they were simply suits of armor. Daarke knw better, however, and could hear each one's heart beat rythmically. "Hello, my Queen," Daarke said, bowing. "It is an honor to meet you again." The Queen smiled and lifted a hand, gesturing for him to right himself. She then gestured to the guards.
"There is no need for you all to be here. Daarke is here, and if any danger comes to me, he will deal with it, for now." The guards all shuffled their feet uncertainly, each of them thinking Daarke himself was the threat, but they all alked out of the room, waiting just outside the door. "Now then, Daarke. There is no need for formalities." Daarke's face was impassive, and gently swept his black hair to a side, revealing one of his silvery eyes.
"I'd rather not, my Queen. I am here to tell you, however, that the scroll of Heroes has just opened." The Queen stared at him, wide-eyed.
"Truly? Daarke, this is excellent!"
"You would think so, wouldn't you, my Queen," Daarke smiled wryly, continuing, "It has only opened a little. I cannot force it to unravel anymore, and only four have been revealed. They go by the names of Nataelong, Terron, Alassė, and Zaphrye. I do not know anything more of them, than their names. However, I used some Forbidden Magic, and I have attuned my senses to their specific heartbeats. I will be able to sense them for miles." The Queen looked baffled.
"But, Daarke, howcould you do such a thing, if you do not even know what they look like?" Daarke lifted a finger.
"My Queen, do not torture yourself by asking me how the Forbidden works... One who does not use it, cannot begin to fathom how it truly works..." Daarke tilted his head, smiling wryly, "that is why it is so dangerous to learn. I am on my way, then." Daarke turned around and vanished a moment later.
