Chapter 1
Like Father, Like Son

Without warning, my surroundings turned utterly hazy, the dizziness overcoming my will to continue upright. Falling to the floor, I began to convulse. As I shook, I saw a figure, I couldn’t make out whether it was a man or woman, but they were sitting at the desk, quill in hand. They seemed to be crying, though what became of the liquid pouring out was most intriguing. When they finished writing, they left the letter on the desk, blew out the flaming candles, and started towards the door. Then, a noise struck them, something I could not hear. They quickly turned to the closet and frantically got inside, pulling the door shut tight behind them. I could hear yelling, screaming at that, presumably towards this person. The door was kicked open and ripped off of it’s hinges. Then, whatever it was, perhaps human, perhaps monster, bashed through the closet door, and grabbed what I could now make out to be a rather frail, old man. The man had scratches all over his face, blood streaming from them. The monster choked his neck, lifting him into the air, until life gave no more to him. Then, the thing turned to me. The wretched beast opened it’s mouth, and red hot fire surrounded me, burning any exposed hair. My skin began bubbling and boiling, melting off my body, and revealing stringy muscle clinging onto my bones. Then, I awoke, glad that it was over, though now I was shivering, and it seemed to be colder than I thought it was before. I got up from the ground, taking one last look at the note from my father, forcing myself to have the will to leave. “Aelius, we shall leave now, and stay here no more.”

“Alright, I will gather up the troops, please, go wait in the kitchen while I do so.”

“Yes Aelius, I will do what you wish.”
