Chapter 10 - King of the Playground
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw5fS6bqjpb
"Queen Scyla, there is someone here, he wishes to see you!" A guard approached the Queen of a small village called Hope.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMkbS2rab14
Scyla looked up, her light brown eyes narrowed. She stood up, and brushed back her white hair, her crown upon her head. Her crown was silver, and consisted of many brightly colored jewels. She wore a long, white dress with a sparkly mint green sleeves and trim, which hung off her shoulders.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEmj9z7uOaL
"Who is it?" Scyla said in her calm voice.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5HRlzXwZgV
"It is Queen Juels, from CrystalPoint."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb3gmViO5uP
"Very well." Scyla began to walk briskly down the halls, towards the entrance.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa8ctiLAMzL
There, stood Queen Juels. Her face was scratched and bruised, her sunset colored hair in a very messy braid. Her pink, yellow and orange dress was torn and ripped, and her crown was not on her head.

12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡscIJzD1oJv
"Queen Scyla, " Juels bowed. "Thank you for seeing me.."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdUEpnWbXJK
"What is it, sister?"
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIipbIqc5Xe
"I come asking for help and bearing a warning," Juels said, trying to keep her voice steady, but failing.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKqqs906aoQ
"I'm listening," Scyla said.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGCKk27gd50
"Last night, my kingdom was attacked. A man walked into my kingdom demanding I hand over the throne. I refused, of course , after he threatened me and kept trying to convince me. After s while he sighed and gave up, and I had my guards take him out of the kingdom, and he went without struggle. He told me his name was Icarus.
Later that night, hid armies attacked. They destroyed us, and took over my kingdom by threatening and killing and enslaving my people.
We fled and I ask you for help...Give me and my people a place to stay, Scyla.."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXOinZ0Nc6L
Scylas lip curled. It was a tense silent for a few moments, before Scyla sighed heavily and agreed.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqRbRjlSqwg
"Oh, thank you!" Juels cried, hugging her sister.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgdT1xV9O8e
"Meh." Scyla turned to her guards, in white armour, and barked for them to go get shelters set up and tell her people.

"Are you ready, sir?" Icarus stepped into the room, staring at the back of a man's head.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQGTF3jPRHZ
"I am," the man said. "Actually, Icarus.." The man turned to Icarus,and smiled. He had very tan skin, messy black hair and twisted horns sticking out from the sides. "I think you should be the one to lead the group when we take over Hope."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWnUHCJp6TY
"Me?" Icarus swallowed. "Why me, sir?"
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqxkVZmZnGX
"You're getting older, Icarus. It's time for you to meet new responsibilities. And I think this is just the place to start. "
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7wE0cHj1z1
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1voVc0FC7y
"No buts! Go. That's an order. "
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAy5Vt4issZ
Icarus frowned, then sighed. "Fine, Thiral."

Thiral walked into the village. Snow fell lightly, as he marched in the streets with confidence, his maroon cloak blowing out behind him as he walked in hid black suit. A sword was on his back as he walked up to the castle.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCJwuzUVrcX
"I wish to speak to the Queen," he said to the guards.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZlW1WtMfpc
"Hand over your weapon," One of them said.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ0kWoRVL6I
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4JsAe2u9tH
Thiral sighed and slipped off the sword, handing it to the guard. The large, wooden oak doors opened and Icarus stepped inside.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7t34u0yhfY
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtZYOVmGQ8M
"Stay here," said another guard, rushing off to get the Queen.

A few moments later, Scyla walked over to Icarus.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhFf6J211NH
Thiral turned to her, and smiled, bowing to her. She did not react.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnEVoPe36mr
"Who are you?" Scyla asked.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKe6KS1bpJ4
"My name is Thiral, ma'am. What an honor it is to meet you at last.."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu1KJ7uL9vz
"What do you want?"
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQTdLh30lan
"I come bearing a message. Hand over the throne to my group and I, or you'll be forced to face the consequences that follow if you refuse."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMUCSFuUQUE
"What consequences?' Scyla didn't make a move, keeping her face unreadable.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVoFF7N9TWF
"We will destroy your kingdom, kill you and your people. Hand over the crown."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsMzGyRKycU
Scyla frowned, she signed something to one of her guards and they ran off. Thiral didn't question it.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWZOyRu2MkW
Scyla turned back to Thiral. " No."

The entire kingdom was being taken over. The guards of Hope we're being completely demolished..
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJCwTR737IA
Children we're ripped away from their mothers and father's, men and women were killed if they tried to resist.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVfYFQ6LapF
Hope was being taken over, just as CrystalPoint had been. Icarus shouted orders at his people, as he led them and helped take over the throne.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTNU2oUOhg6
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxZI3TzaWGT
He suddenly turned to see the Queen being held by two of his fighters. "We got her, sir," one of them said.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxC9whZC2a2
"Great." Icarus turned to Scyla. "Surrender."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH3PC5ewTwN
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ3NH6GhhCY
Icarus's eyes narrowed.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaaAjGRjiUt
The Queen three herself onto the ground, onto her knees and stretched her arms out wide. "Kill me, then. You're not going to win. You tell that to Victor. He's going to lose again," she spat. "He. Will. Lose.'
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlCwbeBqLvW
Icarus growled and slashed across her throat with his sword. She didn't make a noise, she just fell, dead.

Victor stood on the hill, smirking. He felt extremely satisfied, after conquering six places, building his army.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6JX8vld2vc
And beside him, stood Icarus and Thiral.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLYjLFqYDdS
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOCHVgTdWgy
Victor said nothing, gazing down at CrystalPoint.

Diana was outside, walking home in the dark. Snow fell down in flurries and blew back her black hair. She stuck her hands in her pockets and shivered.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCHBk6o8252
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLJp9RlaTyf
"Diana, " a cool voice said suddenly. Diana froze.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIVDBXF71y5
She looked behind her. Nothing.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXbNzvTYEV4
She didn't start walking again, but she muttered something under her breath and held out her palm to the side suddenly, a long, spike shooting our from her hand towards the side.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGHO5RGr1z0
The cool voice laughed. "Not as alert as you used to be, huh?" Victor stepped out of the shadows and smiled.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgiVUTTA1V9
Diana inhaled sharply. "Victor.."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6TlTsQMrvI
"Surprise, Surprise," he said, a grin spreading on his face.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwbqkhh0JjA
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJASFvMy5Nu
"That's right," Victor told her.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfTnANQrAhW
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiN7I8p088j
"Oh, it was nothing really. Just faked my death and started to recover, that kind of thing. I see you have kids now, huh? The four little teenagers..How cute."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIRTBxoo6ub
"You stay the hell away from them-" Diana snarled.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAJ5XjSNLs5
Victor rolled his eyes. "Pfft. Wouldn't lay a finger on them," he said sarcastically, crossing his arms.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHLTPu1euan
"I mean it, Victor or else-"
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOTfIuM6SSB
"Or else what? Youll kill me? Me and you both know you don't have the same power you used to, Diana. I can easily over power you."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4sl9qF2dqv
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj7hcXLebgo
Diana went silent.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡz4hOMLBTEu
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuIWPSnvVBV
"What do you want?" Diana asked, breaking the silence.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrU3I60tkcK
Victor shrugged. "Just control over you so I can see what your little kids are up to and stay one step ahead of them before I annihilate them."
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJLO0AAMcur
Diana tensed up, gritting her teeth. "Don't you-"
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGY9DO20kYB
But it was too late. Victor had uttered something under his breath, a black smoke had suddenly gone into Diana's mouth. She fell onto her knees and hugged her stomach, her eyes shut.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfpvi7CjBXv
She stayed like that for a few moments, before opening her eyes, which we're completely black. They started fading back to normal soon.
12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlGhaGRLt3f
Victor grinned. "You're under my control, now, Diana. And theres nothing you can do about it. "

12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡz30ZAJj5GE
Just had to spy on these kids for a little while longer, then he could kill them.
