Divine Tears - Chp. 4The moon hung over the inn as if it was watching over the people, who now were lying in their beds to find rest. Eventually even the restless Atos found his way to the realm of dreams. There he found himself in a wooden room, with a splendid amount of space. Two bookshelves, a working desk with an oil lamp glowing on it and a bed were standing in it. Atos sat on a chair in front of the working desk, reading a book. He was smaller, younger, a twelve year old boy to be precise. “Atos. Are you still awake?” A gentle, elderly voice called. Atos turned his head to the left and saw an old man standing next to him. The face was very familiar to Atos.
“I am just looking through a grimoire, grandfather.” Atos replied to him.
“That's fine I guess. Perhaps you might have a chance to get a member of the court magicians, if you keep up to this. I wish Cyl would put as much effort into her studies.”
“She puts it into her sword training, at least. It is a pro
Divine Tears - Chp.3Do you sometimes think about the images Enom showed us, Cyl?" Atos asked his sister.
Well, he showed us pictures of a Sauren priest and some dead Sauren, which probably guarded his artifact. But I did thought much about it." she replied.
I have only spoken once to a Sauren. It wasn't easy to say what gender she was, before I spoke to her. After what I heard from her, most Sauren are wizards. Only a few are warriors, which is because their bodies alter slower and muscular body shapes need much effort. Also their intelligence is high, which makes their magic more powerful then their warrior skills could ever be. However, it seems that their magic was sealed, while the amulet of Enom was stolen. Else, they would have destroyed the invaders. This is was makes me worry. Perhaps our magic could be sealed and I'm not a good fighter, which makes my useless in such a case. So we need a strategy to avoid lethal fights." Atos told her.
"We can discuss this another time, Atos. Fo
Divine Tears - Chp.2The sun hasn't rise up, when Cyl and Atos left the town, equipped with bags. They didn't had enough many to travel with horses or a carriage to the far north, so they were walking in direction of the next big town.
It wasn't the safest way to travel, but Cyl and Atos were both able to use magic, though Atos was more experienced, while his sister was the strong one of them. "Okay Atos, I was aware that it would be a harsh way to the north without much money, but this is ridiculous! We will take years to arrive!" she grumbled.
"I'm quite aware that we are too far away from our destination to travel by foot. I got another idea. Enom himself isn't allowed to help us in our quest, but there is magic, which can help us to travel there in no time. I'm talking about teleportation. In Melas is a connection point, which can allow us to travel faster. However, we can't go to Magrien itself, since they isolated themselves from the other connection points. But at the border, we may find some rebels
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
