“…………I love you…..and when this war is over I swear you and I will have a happy family.” Dante effortlessly weaved his way over to Emily as he uttered such caring words. With a swift motion he locked lips with her and gazed deeply into her eyes. “I’m never going to let you go,” uttered Emily with her eyes glazed over. Dante casually turned around to head out of the door. As he was reaching for the knob he mentioned to Emily, “I’m going to go back to the Queen so we can finally play our trump ca-” Instantly there was a deafening thunderous noise followed by a loud thud sound on the floor. That thud sound was Dante’s body dropping straight to the ground with his blood leaking all around him. He had died before he even knew what happened to him. Emily casually placed the small pistol that she had taken out of her back pocket on the purple lampshade next to her. “Yay….blood….I love cleaning that.” Shortly after a very slender lady appeared from the closet that was behind Emily and said, “Your sarcasm is so delightful to hear.” “Well don’t blame me it’s not everyday I have to kill the love of my life,” Emily uttered flippantly. “Yea whatever Emily, you’re soft….you’re actually trying to fight your tears I can feel you hiding it in your voice.” Emily lightly brushed the tears that tried to run down her cheek off her face before she turned back around to face this slender looking bombshell, “Suck my dick, Lucy.”
“Goodness gracious Your Majesty you look absolutely stunning!” remarked Marcus. Queen Sabrina had taken her seat at the royal court where she had summoned a private meeting with Marcus who is the Captain Commander of the country’s army. “Where is Dante, why is he is late?” said Sabrina in a very calm voice. “I’m not sure Your Highness but I’m sure he will be here any second,” said Marcus. “Well we don’t have much time to wait so I will have to start without him. Marcus….we can’t hold back. Queen Gloria is going to use all her might to defeat us.” Marcus proudly grinned and replied, “My Queen, all of our strongest troops are ready to represent our humble Republic of Piscea and we will gladly die to defend you and your Honor.” Sabrina’s presence was undeniably powerful. She only recently became queen over Piscea and in the short term that she has ruled she had efficiently turned the country around from its dark ages and restored the land back to its glory days. It is hard to find someone in Piscea who doesn’t absolutely adore this queen. “Thank you Marcus. Dante was supposed to fill us in about this ‘trump card’ he had supposedly gained access to but since he hasn’t shown I want you to find out for me and we will meet later to discuss it. I will have to cut this meeting short for now as Lucy has an urgent need to speak with me for some reason.” Marcus kindly replied “No problem Your Highness. Dante is finest royal adviser we have had for a long time. I am amazed to see how perfect your chemistry is with him. He was with his wife Emily earlier to share a few words before coming here so I will make sure I get that information from him since I am headed back that way.” Marcus promptly left the royal court. As he headed past the gates he looked at the horizon showing clear the whole republic of Piscea. “It’s been awhile since we went to war…after I come back from the war a hero I will be able to gain the favor of the people and gain a position over Lucy at long last. Her control over the parliament is too powerful for my interests.”
“Hurry up Emily I don’t have much time,” said Lucy, “I have to meet with the Queen really soon.” Emily was the battle strategist for Piscea’s army. Her sound deductive reasoning and battle tactics made a name for herself in previous wars. She also was a spy and double agent for the country’s covert intel unit however this special role of hers was not given to her by the Queen but rather by Lucy so that the both of them can gain valuable information about the other kingdom’s affairs on their own. What Emily had discovered recently about the state of affairs was a bit more than she could handle but it would shift the tide of the entire war should it be revealed properly. “I can’t believe Dante was actually planning to kill me….I thought he really loved me…,” said Emily. Lucy was just about finished with her lollipop when she threw away the stick and replied, “I can’t believe it either. But we couldn’t let him live for obvious reasons. Oh well. I have one last favor Emily.” “Sure what is it.” replied Emily. “There is a certain man I need you to meet. He came on a special tour of our capitals building and I saw him from a distance. I could tell from the way he acted that he is a double agent from the other kingdom looking for information. I specially reserved seats for their journey back through our borders back to their land. I want you to stop him before he boards and bring him to me.” Emily finished cleaning up evidence of murder then stood up with a trash bag on her back and replied “Sure thing miss. Damn nothing can ever escape your view.” As Lucy exited the door she casually said to Emily “There’s nothing in this entire world that can escape my eyes. I can see the truth in anything.”
“I have never in my entire life seen Queen Gloria so angry!” exclaimed Victoria in disbelief as her and Daniel exited the royal courts. Daniel who was just as equally in disbelief replied, “Just the other day she was beaming to me about being a peaceful nation and now she ordering us to gather all of our army and plan an invasion tomorrow!” “Oh come on Daniel! You know you are excited! You have been wanting to express yourself on the battlefield for so long now.” Daniel and Victoria were very high placed generals in the Kingdom of Leone. Daniel was captain commander of all troops and Victoria the second in command. Both had war expertise that was legendary. Folklore about their prowess circled all through the land and while some of it was outright fantasy and exaggerated, these two made clear their dominance when it came to actual battle. Victoria headed towards the main road and said “Our new battle strategist Kevin wants us to meet with him. He said that Michael has some pretty valuable information to share with us all that will help formulate some important strategies we can use for our invasion tomorrow.” Daniel replied, “Sounds good I will meet you there I just need to take care of a few errands first.” With that they shook hands and parted ways.
“What a long day. I knew making frequent trips would pay off one soon enough. I should make it just in time to meet up with Kevin too!” Michael was exhausted. He had spent all day in Piscea posing as a tourist in order to gather very important information. When he gained access into the capitals building he was able to sneak around and overhear a certain meeting between the land’s Queen and adviser. ‘Trump card….hmmm……’ he thought in his head quietly to himself, “With this information I can turn around the whole war!” On his way to the stage coach he was approached by this very attractive young lady. “Do you mind helping me out real quick?” she asked. She was wearing a head scarf that covered her face. “Sure,” Michael replied. She had needed help carrying a lot of material somewhere near the stage coach behind the building. As he wrapped up helping her he turned around to see the lady once wrapped up in cloth suddenly pointing a gun at him. “Now we can do this the easy way or the hard way,” said the lady with the gun. “……Holy shit…..”, replied Michael, “You’re….Emily…..the battle strategist for the republic of Piscea…” “No shit Sherlock,” replied Emily, “I have a special friend I need you to meet.” Michael was clearly frustrated. He didn’t plan on getting caught at such a crucial moment. “I suppose you’re going to take me to the Queen so I can be executed.” “Not quite,” replied Emily, “for now you’re coming with me….
