“Everything is prepared my Lord, we have packed every last thing we need onto the ships and are ready to leave.” What news of Lordaeron City? “No news, all who have fled are here and are ready to leave, women, children are safely aboard the ships and we wait only your order, an escort will arrive soon to take you aboard the ship.” Thank you soldier, you have done well thus far, let us hope you and your men will be with us throughout these hardships and dangers that lie ahead. “We will serve you as long as we shall live; we fight for you and our people.” I see no h0nour has left you, I am grateful for your services. Leave me to think, go now. “As you wish.”
Not long did I wait before my escort arrived. At the door of my once proud keep they waited. Though they were terrified of what was happening still they stood waiting, my honourable soldiers, my brothers in arms. My door suddenly burst open. “My Lord you must hurry they are making their final assault and I fear there isn’t much time to spare. Very well, let us go then. As we left I grabbed my sword and a map and took a last look at what I loved so much, so much death surrounded us and I felt a pain like no other, as if I was being stabbed over and over again, the sight of my fellow elves bleeding and calling out in pain and misery was almost too much to bare and I felt as if the pain would never leave me.
As my escort and I arrived at the ship I turned and took a last look at what once was a beautiful port, filled with life and happiness and wondered if I would ever see it again. Death was everywhere and the smell of rotting flesh and hate and fire filled the air, the sky grew dark and rain began to fall.
This is the second part in the series 'Scourge of Darkness' hope you all enjoy it, We look forward to your comments and reviews.
