THIS IS MY LAND
The land was lush and green across the meadow, red eyes looking across the flowers that were in bloom but they were alert ready for anything that came. Scanning for enemies they kept a distant stare. Lips a pale blue as though she was dead, long legs that were covered by leather black boots that went up to her knee as the wear of her legs was bare up to her mid thigh as she had a purple cloth silk wrap around her waist tying off on her left hip allowing the two tails to flow down her leg just past her skirt. Thin waist that gave her curve as it went up to a large bust held in by a black leather corset that was laced up the back with elven silver thread that did not break. Her ears were pointed due to being of elf heritage; almost hidden by her Krone blood red hair almost mistaken at times during certain lights for flowing blood. She is Dissonantia, known as the Shadow Queen. This name came from her rule and her life. Darkness as she destroyed heroes normally along with her old friend a now dark king of the eastern lands, as she ruled the northern.
"My queen." a voice said from behind a large pine that stood on the outskirts of the meadow. Her long hair blew over her right shoulder as a tall human dressed in commoners rags stood before her. An elderly man that farmed the land near her castle was an hour’s ride away from where she was. His white hair showed his age as he was a big belly man. Dissonantia had a weak spot for old men since her time with humans found that the elders to be more respectful.
With a blank look on her face, she spoke with calmness. "What?! Simple peasant. Why have you come to seek an audience?"
"Please help!" The old man cut the queen off which made her annoyed. But he was scared and same time worried, which made the woman curious. "Please...please. An army from the east. They...”
"The east?" She repeated a little confused about this.
"Yes. They are burning the town! Taking the woman! Please my queen! They took my daughter! She is all the family I have! I never ask for."
Before the elderly man could finish his plea, Dissonantia put two fingers to her lips; blowing she let out a quick loud whistle. If the east was coming to her land in spring, she wondered what was going on more than what was wrong with her people. This was her land. As she made the whistle sound, and it ended with an echo of it. A giant five foot tall black saber panther burst out between the trees with a gold studded brother leather collar around its neck. Erabus, a mount that was a present from her friend that ruled the east. As he ran by her, she grabbed the collar with one hand as she kicked her foot off the ground, allowing her to jump onto her pet's back riding full throttle towards her home city where her castle and people her being called into war without notice. Dissonantia worked hard for her castle and she wasn't going to let anyone take it away from her. Red eyes fixed ahead of her as her long blood red hair flew behind her while her mount Erabus ran like the wind hastily. Catching him is impossible as his feet flew them over fallen trees through the forest to the kingdom of Obscuratia, her dark kingdom. The smell of blood and smile filled their noses as her people were running in terror from black armored knights and soldiers from the East. The flag that they rode with was that of her friend's kingdom. The three white strikes in the center of a smoky blue diamond shaped flag with a giant backwards snake on it in the shape of an "s" over the strikes. This puzzled her as her eyes saw the marks. Dissonantia kept her grip on Erabus's collar as they rode into the city through the south gate. The citizens ran past them as bodies lay in the streets. Erabus let out a loud roar that bellowed through the streets. The eastern soldiers turned in time to see shadowy beings came out of the darkness in the walls at the queen's command. As the queen grabbed a sword from a fallen soldier that lied dead on the ground. Holding the bronze short sword in her small elf hands, the eastern soldiers looked at her in fear as the shadows started tarring them limb from limb. Erabus's claws scratched across the cobble ground as the queen stabbed through the helmets, drawing the blood.
"This is my land!!!!!" Dissonantia yelled angrily with a voice like a devil as her upset was one thing no one wanted to hear.
Suddenly an arrow flew past her head barely scratching her cheek, hearing the words that she should let the soldiers live or she dies. Dissonantia smirked and stared at the Soldier as the shadows used the dead bodies to be her army. The general of the east froze with his arrow drawn aimed at the shadow queen. Dissonantia stared at the man before her that was human as his soldiers were now being used as puppets. Dissonantia's human like people cowering on the streets, few of the citizens taking up arms to defend their homes.
"Lower your arrow and tell me why you have attacked, or I shall kill your entire family. Starting with your wife and children." The shadow queen demanded as she sat on her mount Erabus with the sword aimed at him and soldiers surrounding the General. "Now!!!" Dissonantia demanded angrily ready to take his head off.
The man kept his arrow drawn. "We have our orders from our new Lord. The one king of this land. He has wished for your head. I shall brin." With the General's words the shadow queen caused the man's own shadow to kill him by snapping his neck all the way around before he could finish.
The Queen felt betrayed as she watched her castle burn. This was not like her friend. Something wasn't right but then again her friend could have been driven mad or out. The people rushed to put the fire to the city out. But the damage was done; Dissonantia was angry and wanting revenge. Erabus stood there as Dissonantia rubbed behind his large left furry black ear. Readjusting herself on her mount, they slowly went through town as the shadow's disappeared as she lowered her power. Dissonantia did not get the name shadow queen for nothing. The powers she was born were shadows, and they were legendary enough to make knights be scared.
"Bury the dead. Leave the castle to burn. The people are most important." Dissonantia spoke as the people listened, trying to save and take care of the survivors. She sat on her mount in anger and sadness watching her castle burn hearing the screams come out. A tear fell from her red eyes but she wiped it away before anyone could see. "Era. Let’s go."
With that Erabus moved through the streets seeing the dead lying on the ground. People watched as she went by in fear and terror about the anger she felt. The people nodded their heads, till a scared little brown haired human girl no more than five ran in front of Erabus. The large cat paused, stopping in mid step as Dissonantia stared down at the little girl not in a good mood.
"Momma! PAPA! Help!!! They!!!"
"Go home child." The queen demanded.
The child cried as people watched walking by before stopping. "They won't move!!! They no wake up!!!"
Erabus didn't move as Dissonantia told him to. But instead looked at her sadly. The queen dismounted as the child trembled in fear. Dissonantia knelled down and picked up the little girl holding the child on her right hip. "Your parents are dead. They died fighting, you should be proud." Dissonantia said calmly. She at times did not know the word sympathy just as she wasn't sure what to do right now. She walked with Erabus and the child taking the girl to the orphanage that she had made herself. After that she rode on her giant cat looking around as bodies and homes lay destroyed. Her people attacked by the soldiers of the man that she had called her friend.
"My Lady! What."
The woman paused as the queen looked at her castle on fire. "Bury the dead. I will deal with this personally." Dissonantia couldn't take looking at her castle burning anymore. "The council will be in charge. This is my land and I shall kill all who try to take it." The queen spoke angrily with the promise of revenge for them. The people watched as their queen left storming into the night on her saber panther Erabus. Disappearing into the night not stopping as they rode through the trees heading south towards the eastern border.
