The Emperor of Soclice watched on with horror as Wararth the ghost lord had taken Chisoutsa’s body inside the Emperor’s house. Chisoutsa shook her body and Wararth’s voice came out.
“If I can’t defeat her for now I shall take her body and do what I please with it.”
“Release yourself from her body at once! The people of Soclice don’t want you here anymore than I do,” The Emperor ordered Wararth.
“You’re too old to handle me. With Chisoutsa under my power and her brother and the old wizard frozen there is no one here to help you anymore.” Wararth replied.
Wararth unleash another blizzard upon The Emperor and moved towards him. Outside of the Emperor’s House Alan Richards, Kalund, and Stolin were watching the battle when Alan banged his fist against the wall.
“We have to do something but I don’t know what!” he cried.
Stolin and Kalund met together for a small chat wondering what they could do to help tide their changes around. The both of them viewed Lucas and Frithdar’s frozen bodies and then the image of Chisoutsa being taken over by Wararth.
“I really can’t see anything that can help us now. I’m not a wizard and we can’t take on Wararth.” Kalund said in defeat.
“You know that demons are weak to ice and blizzards. Maybe that’s why Wararth is staying clear of his magic. We should try and block him in a blizzard,” Alan explained.
Stolin rubbed his beard and nodded, “How do we do that idea Alan?” he asked.
“Run in there and get The Emperor to force Wararth into a corner. Only idea I have,” Alan said.
The three of them nodded at the idea and decided to roll the dice on the plan. Alan came into the Empire’s House where Wararth were exchanging bolts of fire with the blizzard still buzzing around.
“Emperor, push him into the blizzard! He will weaken and might let go of Chisoutsa!” Alan cried out.
The Emperor shot out a electric ray towards Wararth from his staff and Wararth started moving back into the blizzard however when he was in the blizzard there was no effect. Alan, Stolin, and Kalund ran up to grab some axes found hung on the side of the throne room and decided to charge into Chisoutsa’s body. Her body shook abit as Wararth noticed a pulling back from attacking her friends.
“All of you are trying in vain. Give up the fight and I will spare your lives,” Wararth noted.
The Emperor turned around from the battle and the moment. He walked up to the group with the staff of Soclice in hand. He looked over his elderly hands and the years he had been missing from his very own body. He closed his eyes hearing the wrath of Wararth in the background and the pain it had caused his own land. He looked up to the group with a tear in his eye. Alan, Stolin, and Kalund froze in their places for a moment. The Emperor pulled Stolin up to his mouth, “The empire is yours.” He said.
Alan grabbed the Emperor’s arm and looked at him with a glare in his eye, “What did you say?” he shouted.
“For all the goodness of the world, the one that walks forever was never me. Whatever path one takes, follow it even if it breaks your heart. Forgive me,” The Emperor said.
He turned around with the Staff of Soclice and charged towards Wararth within Chisoutsa’s body. He raised the staff end in the middle of the wild blizzard and daggered it in Chisoutsa’s body. The blizzard smashed away from Wararth like a twister and the spells of the ghost lord were shattered within time. The windows in the Emperor’s House smashed to pieces and the guards who were in stone turned back to human form. They stood in shock as the Emperor’s House caved from the inside. The magic and madness stopped in a heartbeat and there was silence. Total silence.
The Government Square was in overdrive in the City of Demons when the news broke of the destruction of the Emperor’s House. News television took over the screens of everywhere where Charles Thompson the Prime Leader was watching in his office.
“There is breaking news of the end of civil war between Wararth the ghost lord who in recent reports told that he had taken the body of Chisoutsa, the famous savior of The City of Demons. People on the streets are reporting that the Emperor’s House is completely destroyed and that no one has survived. We will bring you more up to date news as it comes in,” the news report beamed.
Charles picked up his phone and called a number, “I want everyone army, police, and people over in Soclice at once. The City of Demons will answer its call. We must find these people at once!”
Crows of people were found helping to lift up dirt and rabble at the Emperor’s House when the Prime Leader arrived with Allegheri, Mr. Umzeu, and Professor Walken. Charles went up to a senior army guard and questioned him, “What has happened and are there any survivors?”
“We have found who are there on the side there recovering with medical,” he answered.
Charles and Allegheri went up to see Stolin and Kalund on some seats dusty and bloodied, “What happened here? Who is alive?” Charles asked the pair.
“The Emperor, he saved us. I don’t know what happened next” Kalund answered.
Shouts were heard from inside the rubble as the army guards pulled out two people. Allegheri turned around to see Frithdar and Lucas appeared from the wreak and nudged the Professor. Professor Walken rushed up to see Lucas, “Son, are you ok. Where’s Chisoutsa. What happened?”
“We got frozen by Wararth and that is all I know.” Lucas answered.
Over in the corner five army guards found a moving body in the rabble and Mr. Umezu heard Alan’s voice, “Alan Richards, don’t you bloody die on me. That’s a order. Where are you?” he shouted from a distance. The army guards helped Alan up and Mr. Umezu helped dusting off his clothes and looked around the area.
“Chisoutsa’s body was taken over by Wararth. She’s over there somewhere,” Alan answered coughing on the dust. Mr. Umezu helped Alan along the room where Charles and a dozen army guard set upon the area where Chisoutsa was. Professor Walken dug up the bricks with the guards as everyone chipped in to help. Charles was alerted by the army guards to come over to see a body found, “I’m afraid the Emperor is dead,” replied the guard.
Stolin and Kalund came across to see the body and were sadden to see their leader has lost his life again, “Maybe he knew this was going to happen in the end, “Stolin said to Kalund.
Professor Walken found a leg of Chisoutsa and the army guards and he rushed to pull her out of the mess. They carried her across the rubble and put her down in the court yard in with all the flowers which amazingly was still standing after the battle with Wararth. Alan came up and checked on her body with Allegheri and Allegheri grew in sorrow. He turned around to Chisoutsa’s father and grabbed his hand.
“She fought a hard battle and freed the Emperor’s soul. She and the Emperor are gone. They saved us all Jonathan,” Allegheri replied.
Jonathan Walken sat on the grass in a haze and touched Chisoutsa’s face and nothing appeared in his mind expect for his only daughter. Lucas, Frithdar, Mr. Umezu, Stolin, Alan, and Kalund stood around the Professor and Chisoutsa in the court yard.
“I knew this could happen many times in the past but I never thought this could happen. She ends up getting killed by the Emperor to defeat Wararth.” Spoke the Professor.
Charles stood next to Professor and leaned down to see his old friend in pain. Jonathan held Charles’s shoulder struggling to control his emotions, “I did this. I pushed her to be this person who would save the world. I tried to control her demon thoughts. I was wrong, so very wrong.”
Mr. Umezu leaned down and looked at Chisoutsa’s face. He noticed a odd green coloring in her eyes and looked up at Allegheri, “Old vampire, what’s this about?” he asked.
“I have never seen that coloring before. There’s no heartbeat but is there brain activity,” Allegheri said.
“We will return her back to Scienceworks for tests to see how she died. I want every possible test done on her to see what happened,” Charles instructed Alan and Mr. Umezu.
The two nodded as Professor Walken lay over his daughter’s body but Mr. Umezu had other thoughts about her death. Chisoutsa was indeed dead but the crafty businessman was not buying that she was gone forever.
“This is Chisoutsa we are talking about,” he whispered to Alan, “She couldn’t die based on this. Impossible to live through for other people but this is no originally girl we are talking. I will be making my own investigations into myself,” he explained further to Alan.
Frithdar stepped forward with an answer to the Chisoutsa’s condition. He leaned down to watch her strange green eyes flicker and looked at Professor Walken.
“The Ghost Lord has captured her soul however there was something that he didn’t plan on when he took over her body,” Frithdar said.
“What was that?” Professor Walken replied leaning down next to him studying Chisoutsa’s eyes.
“He’s a human and demon and he’s only taken the demon side. She can be saved,” Frithdar explained.
