Lost

I still enjoy the times that I can go out far away from the castle. I was able to explore the land and see new things. It changed after my 12 birthday. When I am walking across the hall near my fathers throne room I over heard him and a messenger talking. The news is about the threat that a number of imperian spy was able to enter the land and spotted lurking around. It alarmed my father for the imperians have always wanted to terrorize our land. He right away deployed knights to patrol around our kingdom. He then forbidden us to go out of the caslte to be safe. I didn’t want that to happen and so is my brother this is because I found out that my brother has a girlfriend outside of the castle and not being able to go out means not seeing his girlfriend. I found out about his girlfriend one day when I was walking at the center of the city and I saw my brother talking to a girl. I didn’t mention that I know of his girlfriend though. He debate with our father and said that he can take care of himself that he be allowed to go out of the castle. My father agreed to let my brother still go out of the castle. I told my father that I too should be allowed because that will be unfair. He said he will let me go out but he will one of his well skilled fighter go with me. The fighter turns out to be the father of my brother’s girlfriend.

I didn’t like the idea that one of my father’s guard will follow me whenever I go out of the castle but I took whatever bargain I get. One day I got sick of being followed that I spot an opportunity too flee. I saw a crowd and run towards it. I know the guard followed me I ran so quick that I lost him. The problem is I find myself lost in an abandoned and creepy place. I tried to trace my steps to get back but I got lost even more. Then, I hear people coming I thought of coming to them for directions but I decided to hide instead for I feel like those people cannot be trusted. I hid behind a rock not far from them. I saw 3 men talking to each other. “This is a nice place to hide. We planned for this a long time. We don’t want to screw this up. We will stay here until they feel that their little kingdom is safe from us again”. They are planning something bad and I decided to find out about it so I continued to spy until dark. As I continue to spy I saw that they are creating a map of the whole kingdom. The worst thing happen. I accidentally step on a branch that made a noise and they discovered me. I can see the look in their eyes that they are so ready to kill me. I ‘m thinking of running but my feet just wont move. The first man took out his sword and ready to swing it on me. I thought about the training I’ve been doing and I thought and this is the time to put all I’ve learned in to use that this is what I have trained for. So when the Man slash his sword on me I was dodge it and run. The coward me just run but they caught up on me. I had no choice but to defend myself then when the Man is about to strike me with his long and sharp sword an arrow shot him right to his chest. When I looked I saw my brother with a group of knights.

They hold the two men prisoner and discovered the planned attack on our kingdom. The map they are making is the whole map of the kingdom that they will use to strategize their plan. I was thankful for my brother but when I came to thank him about saving my life he yelled at me and said that what I did is foolish. It turns out that our father the king have cast out the guard that should be protecting me away from our kingdom for failing to watch over me when I got lost. That means my brother’s girlfriend also needs to move away with his father. I went to our father the king and told him not to cast out the guard who he assigned to watch me. My father decided not to cast him out but he never want to see them again inside the castle. I didn’t know what happened to my brother and his girlfriend after that. It took a month before my brother talked to me again after that incident.

No Work All Play

I were finally allowed to go out of the palace and to the center of the city when I were 11. I’m glad that I don’t need to sneak in and out of the castle they might thought there is no use in forbidding me to do so I can sneak in and out with using my own free will anyway and they cannot stop me. My brother is also 11 when he were officially allowed to go out to away from the castle. My brother doesn’t like going out of the castle though. He usually stays in his training and focus on becoming a real Man of the castle.

After my training in the morning I am always excited to go out in the center of the city to see other people and places. The market is specially a busy a place. The plaza where a lot of people performed in the street and play their own composed music. People dancing to their tunes. I enjoy being outside. Further more across the street I see people right around my age playing. They are playing a game called Ring Match. The is composed of 10 poles and played inside a large area which they call field. The field has 5 poles in each end that consist of 5 different colors. The objective of the game is to throw and have the right colored ring be inserted in the right colored pole. The challenge is that the pole is guarded by the opposite team so you wont be able to score a point by successfully inserting the ring on to the poles. Both team needs to place they rings on the poles of the other team. The poles can be placed strategically anywhere inside the field by your opponent. The team who has the highest score wins. When I approach them they let me join the game and teach me how to play it. I met new friends that they and I very much liked the game. In fact I so much liked the game I brought it at the castle. I am able to convince my older brother to play it with me and he liked the game as well. We always play together since then. That is also the time when we bonded and  I got closer with my older brother. Through playing the game longer we kind of modified the rules and played a larger field. The field became the whole palace ground which made it more difficult and challenging. My brother climbed up and placed his pole on the top of the room. I climbed and placed mine on a higher room. Every after the game we get so tired but laughing because of the fun we had playing.

Royal Knight

I am Kahel. After 2 years of training to become a knight I am given the opportunity to join the king along with the other knights on a journey to the south. The expedition is for expanding alliances through out the land. The king have always chosen to go and speak to other leaders of other lands to recognize friendship towards kingdoms and maintain peace thru out the whole land but there are other kingdoms who does not care for peace only seek power and envy other prosperous kingdoms. The alliance was successful but during the journey back I sense something bad will happen not a moment later, a herd of armed people surrounded us and made an ambush trying to kill our king. The knights bravely fought back and protected the king. I didn’t a second chance and stood up to protect the king. I always has this ability to sense danger around me and it has always help me in times of trouble. We became out numbered but the knights fought bravely. I was left to protect the king at some point. I took the king behind my back but the king take out his sword and started to fight beside me and said “Don’t mock an old man child. I can wield a sword better than those knights myself”. Even if outnumbered, we won that fight and the king made me one of his best knights after that. Just after a year he made me captain and as I have continued to impress him he have trusted me so much to lead his troop in taking over a land on the north who has been attacked by rebels. As always I am victorious but when I came home to our land I saw our kingdom at war. I and my men rushed to the battle as I saw the castle on fire. I hurried inside and look for the king. While looking for the king I saw dead knights. Then I heard a voice “My best knights are dead. We where caught by surprised.” As I looked I saw the king badly wounded covered with blood. I rushed to him and he whispered “The kingdom has fallen”. I responded strongly, “No! There is still hope for the kingdom and our people. I will save our beloved land”. The king uttered his last words “Then go and leave with our remaining knights and take back our beloved land. Be king”.

I gathered the remaining knights and fled. “Are we escaping captain”, they asked. “No! We will be preparing to take what is rightfully ours. That is the kings order.” After that incident, my men and  I have worked hard on a plan to save our lost kingdom. Everyday we lived our lives preparing for the day that we finally take our beloved land back from its takers, the Imperians. The day came and we arrived at our old kingdom determined to take it back. We where incredibly victorious but I came across a painful realization that night. The Knight Captain who help me enter the contest for the selection of the future knights. The one who taught me the ways of battle and handling a sword is the traitor who made the fall of our kingdom possible and the one who killed the king. With vengeance I ended his life and that is when I became the king ruler of the whole Celestial Kingdom. I am Lord Kahel Elionhart.
