Grim Tales: Crossroads of Destiny
Chapter 5: The Assault, Riku
“So how have things been for you lately Areon?” I asked, “Oh they’ve been ok… well if you think constant raids by our damned brother Zaiko is ok” he sighed. “Well that is highly unfortunate… I would help but the pact we made forbids me to enter your realm even with your permission.” I said, “Yes, yes I know that, and besides all he does is send a couple of Storm Spirits at me but I just bat them away” Areon said while stirring his tea.
“So… what’s the real reason you came?” I said with a cold tone. The room started to tense up as if an all out war was about to break out. “The uh, Academy would like your help in defending them” Areon said quietly. “I knew it… damn people may hate me but they always need me to protect their precious Academy” I said with bitterness. “What’s the problem now?”
“There is a huge army of undead and Aeddric creatures have showed up”, “Aeddric eh? Wow, haven’t seen those in a while, I thought I killed them all when…” I said before I stopped. I started to remember something, an old memory but… I couldn’t remember it. “Riku? Are you ok?” Alice asked. “Yeah! Perfectly fine except for my shoulder I'm fine!” I hoped that she would look though that, but my chances were slim.
“Sir! There is a major enemy force outside of our walls” yelled Pain. “What?!! How many are there?!” yelled Junior. “There’s 40, no 90, no 150 of them sir!!” gasped Pain. “That many??!! There shouldn’t be that many of them! How in the fiery depths of Hell did they get past our security?!”
“They materialized out of gates” I replied with a grim look. Damn… I thought they were dead!! How just how did they survive!
“We have to go now! Us three have to protect the castle” I barked. “Alice, Junior with me! Pain, get all of your forces out here now! If they breach there will be nothing left of this place!”
“Right!” Alice and Junior said. We started to run towards the front gate and when we got outside of the walls… nothing but pure chaos was out there. “One-Crowned release!!!” Alice and I said as we changed forms. I was in my white coat and my mask had melted into a hood, Alice well… she looked beautiful. Her hair had changed from her black-red hair and turned into a pure silvery-white color, her outfit changed from jeans and a tee-shirt into a blood-red dress.
‘Whoa… you guys are powerful” said Junior with amazement in his eyes. “Kings Blade! Heavens Blade!” we yelled. Our weapons summoned in a flash of light, my sword with a black crown in the middle and Alice’s sword was a golden broadsword with wings for the hand guard. “Now!!” I ordered.
All three of us started to attack. We attacked with fierce attacks killing hordes of Aeddric enemies. I was shooting blades of energy from my sword, Alice was using her Double-Cross slash, slashing crosses into her enemies. Junior was hacking away with his scythe, slashing left and right summoning his Demonic powers to enhance his strength. But no matter how long we hacked and sliced they just kept forming.
“I can’t keep this up for longer!” yelled Alice. “Same here!” Junior yelled. “Damn it! Just die already!!” I shouted as I ripped off an Aeddric’s head with my sword. “AHHH!!!” screamed Alice. I looked over my shoulder and I saw… something so terrible I blanked out for a moment. She was impaled with a sword through her chest, and… blood gushed out of her wound. The demon pulled out his sword and she started to fall.
“JUNIOR!!!! Get Alice!!! Take her and go, I’ll hold them off!!!” I screamed. “Can you handle them alone!” he yelled back. “Just get her and go!!!!” I yelled. He went down and picked her up and flew away. Anger, rage, fury, words can’t describe how I was feeling. I flew towards them at full speed, I put on my mask which made me even faster.
I started to hack away and killing the Aeddric ruthlessly; nobody does that to Alice and lives. They kept reforming and I just kept killing them but I was tiring out. I can’t beat them…
“Yes you can brother” said a voice. I turned around to see someone I haven’t seen in an eternity: my little sister Camela. “Just do what you did before, play” she said.
“No… I refuse, I would rather die than use that!” I yelled at her. “Well then you’ll lose big sister Alice if you don’t.” she chided. I stood there for a moment and thought. “Fine then…” I said as she faded away. “Organ of Destruction…”. Then a huge organ appeared out of the abyss, black as night and ready to be played.
I sat down and started to play. The song that I played… is too hard to explain what it sounds like. The Aeddric started to flee, but they couldn’t. The song ensnared them in invisible bindings, and they were trapped. “Now begone and die demons!” I yelled as I finished the song. With a flash of light the demons faded… out of existence, just like I did before: I wiped out my own kingdom…
