"So close, and yet out of Bloodbane’s reach, there was the country of Arulan" "The border state between the independent west, and the Bloodbane ruled east" "Never before had there been such a hive of depravity and iniquity" "The country was built and sustained by the labor of children, who were considered second class citizens with no rights, able to be bought and sold at their parent’s leisure." "Children were forced to sacrifice childhood for a life of hard labor." "It was a sign of wealth to own many children to do your bidding, and no one had as many servants as the king" "He had a servant for all his needs, cooking, cleaning, and other, more deviant, duties." "There were signs of unrest of course." "It was obvious there would be. Even the other independent states rarely mingled with them." "The only reason that the country still stood was because the independents needed them, without a strong border state, Bloodbane would have the advantage" "Still, from within the country there were protests, but the protestors were gunned down in the streets." "There were small insurgences, but they too died at gunpoint." "The soldeirs of Arulan were picked at birth, and trained vigorously, mentally and physically..." "The resistence cells didn't stand a chance" "A revolution seemed out of the question" "People lacked the right to keep arms, and using magic took practice."

"It had been taken up to his bedchamber." "By all accounts it was better than any of the other ones he had used before" "When he saw it, he felt that he’d wasted his money buying the others." "He’d never even had one come close." "While he usually preferred them younger, he wasn’t about to refuse this gift, he hurriedly undressed himself while it looked away." "The way its face became red despite its dark skin made it seem cuter." "He turned out the lights and moved toward the bed." "He put his lips to its, but there was something wrong with the way it felt and also" "There was a smell" "It wasn’t very familiar to him, but those in the lower quarters off the city would recognize it instantly." "He flicked the lights on and his eyes widened with terror, there was a corpse laying there, a male one at that." "Before he could cry out, he felt a sharp pain in his back." se "Seven hates people like you" "It had stabbed him." "He tried to get to his feet, to run away, to call the guards" "He made it outside the room, but the blood loss had upset his balance, He collapsed, and fell back onto the bed, on top of the corpse. He thought he'd been running in the other direction" se "He was one of your guards, Seven had no idea you liked your security staff so much" "It sat in a chair next to the bed, taunting him, he tried to speak, but all that came bubbling up from his mouth was blood, he had a second knife lodged in his chest." "The terror filled him with adrenalin, and with that extra strength" "He once again made for the door, it made no move to stop him." "He was halfway down the hall, when a thrown knife slashed his ankle and he toppled over." "He fell onto the bed again." "He couldn’t speak, but in his mind he asked how, his back had been to the room, and he fell forward, how had he ended up here twice when he’d been running in the opposite direction? He then looked toward it, he was sure that it was naked before, but now, where’d it get those clothes, where’d that hat come from?" "Now it had a hat as well." "Where did that knife come from? With what little strength he had left he remove the knife from his chest and when it was less than half an arm length away stabbed into a body" se "Where’d that corpse come from, is that what you’re thinking?" "He turned around, how had it gotten behind him?" "Why was his knife lodged in a corpse, he’d been sure it was on the bed a moment ago" "He hurriedly tried to free the knife from the dead man, but to no avail." "His vision went black, he was vaguely aware of a most hideous pain in his eyes." "When had it moved to do this? He tried to scream the two knives in his eyes were the most painful injury of all." "He was writhing in his own blood, the next thing he knew, there was a cold sensation, was it the moat, he hadn’t felt himself falling." "Now he felt the water filling his lungs, agonizing pain took hold of him, as if he were exploding from the inside. He descended to the bottom of the moat, and kept falling from there." se "Regicide, regicide, the king is dead." "It put the phone down, and slipped the hat onto its head" "She smiled" "That phone was connected to an emergency intercom system; the message was heard all throughout the city" "All Hell broke loose" "The soldeirs weren't expecting a revolution on this scale, almost every child in the city was rallied together, and several sympathetic adults also fought with them." "Within the hour the city was in flames, as the children fought against the soldeirs." "The soldeirs were skilled, but there was an overwhelming number of enemies for them to fight." "At the last census, children had outnumbered adults five to one." "Somehow they had gained a nice supply of weapons as well, and someone had trained some of them in magic as well." "Still, the soldiers od Arulan didn't back down, they still had the advantage in terms of strength." "(there is a scene change here)" se "Hey Gin, it’s your turn" "Gin shook his head at Seven's voice from the other side of the telephone." g1 "It’s G-1-n" se "You can’t fool Seven. Seven is l33t." g1 "My God. Alright, I’m preparing." "He stood atop the highest spire in the city, overlooking the chaos from his lofty position, he looked down from behind his mask, and his eagle like vision pinpointed the remaining soldiers." se "Fire at will" g1 "Understood" "From his wings thousands of golden lights shone, and then flew forward." "Scattering across the horizon seeking out their targets with deadly accuracy." "On the ground, these lights pierced through their target’s bodies, leaving a burning hole through the point of contact." "G1n folded his wings, and awaited a second order." "(there is a scene change here)" se "Excuse Seven, the operation was successful." re "Good and you?" se "He died before he could touch Seven, but if he had Seven would charge extra." se "Of course, you already paid Seven" "A light focused on the balcony of the hotel where the two were conducting they’re business." "It was time for her entrance" se "You first, Queen Reina" re "Already acknowledging me with that title." se "A Queen has a much larger account to pay with, a baroness doesn’t, and Seven’s price just went up." re "You cut-throat. I anticipated this though." se "Seven isn’t a cut throat, Seven is a businesswoman. Go ahead outside." "Reina stepped outside into the light and raised her arms triumphantly" "The people in the streets looked up toward her" re "People of Arulan, I am Reina, the wife of the late Baron Xander land. I assumed not only his position a baroness, but as queen of this country If there are any dissenters left step up now." re "No one? Seven, tie up the loose ends." se "Yes milady." "(There is a scene change here.)" "Thanks of the mercenaries hired by Reina, Arulan's revolution had gone through without a hitch." "A full week had passed without much news from the castle, other than the abolishment of slavery, not much had happened." "The children were still working, only now they were being paid, though they were also being taxed now." "Reina and the mercenaries were now living in the castle, and they hadn't been seen since the revolution." "About a week after the revoulutin, Reina appeared on the television news." re "Greetings my citizens, I am proud to announce that our revolution has gone over rather well. We are in a deep debt, however, I had already made arrangements to deal with this debt prior to the revolution." re "In the week since the revolution, I have been negotiating the final agreement between myself and the Empress of Bloodbane." re "They have agreed to pay our debt, on the condition that the country becomes aligned with Bloodbane." re "Once the debt is paid, we can focus all our resources on rebuilding our shattered country." re "Our alliance will be officially cememnted by my marriage to an Arcana Knight of Bloodbane seventy days from now." re "We must all band together in this time to rebuild our beloved country, stronger, and more righteous than before. This is your queen Reina signing off." "(A wild scene change appears!)" "The reaction of the independent states to the news had been one of outrage." "Almost as soon as the announcement left the television screens, a letter was sent out to all the leaders of the independent states." "It was a request for their prescences at a confrence." "Thus began the First Confrence of Los Angelos." "The room they met in was pitch black, to protect the identities of many of the leaders." "It was a way they kept themselves safe." "There was only one lit corner of the room." "It was there that Haruka sat." "Old Man Voice" "Now we call to order the First Conference of Los Angelos. We all know the issue at hand." "Old Man Voice" "Arulan, a critically important border state is changing its alliance." "Old Man Voice" "This would allow Bloodbane easy access to the West, and Bloodbane will surely attack us. Right now, we should all band togehter to look for a solution." "Old Man Voice" "Now, anyone with a solution, lay it on the table now." "Woman's Voice" "I belive that we should work together to form a defensive line along Arulan's border with New Texas." "Husky Voice" "I agree, we should create a defense with our own troops to defend the line." "Spainish Accented Voice" "I don't agree, We in New Mexico barely have enough troops to defend ourselves. I propose we simply prepare for war. It will be bloody, but we can win. I have allies in South America, they would surely support us." "Husky Voice" "Bloodbane controls almost all of South America, even if we called our allies from around the world, we would still be outnumbered." ha "I think I have the solution." "Old Man Voice" "Very well, speak Ms. Koiga." ha "It's simple, we go in and put Arulan's old governemnt back in power." "Husky Voice" "Your proposing a counter revolution? That will surely lead to an immediate war!" ha "Not if we act before the alliance changes in sixty days. I already know there is a counter-revolution in Arulan with the remnants of the old military, I could fund them, and as long as I'm covert about it, lead them." "Old Man Voice" "This is very interesting, but will they have the strength to match an Arcanan Knight? As you all know, one is being brought to the city." ha "I know, the Knight of Lovers, Hiro Noyabr, but I have the counter-measure to that." "Old Man Voice" "You're suggesting we call on him?" ha "Yes, he is officially unaligned, so he can act however he wants. It isn't even officially recored within Bloodbane that I was the one who helped him disappear from their search parties." "Husky Voice" "You mean to make us rely on that demon." ha "I would appreciate if you didn't refer to my little brother in such a way." "Old Man Voice" "I belive that this is the best option." "Husky Voice" "But sir..." "Old Man Voice" "SCILENCE!! I see this as the best option, because so far Ms. Koiga has yet to fail at any operation she has undertaken. Besides, of us all Ms. Koiga is the one with the most military expirence." "Old Man Voice" "Need I remind you all that she was formerly the Arcanan Knight of the World?" ha "Thank you sir. I think it can be done if we apply a delicate touch. As long as the counter revolution deals the final blow, Bloodbane will not wage war against us." ha "The real dififculty is that we have to countinue to seem a match for Bloodbane, or they will walk over us no matter what." ha "If we don't at least attempt something, Bloodbane will know that many of our economies are failing." ha "However, if there is a counter-revolution, then we will have time." ha "The war is inevitable, but we must be prepared when the time comes, if we fail to act now, then we've lost." ha "No matter how much I dislike Arulan, we must restore its alliance with us." ha "Are there any objections now?" "The room was silent."
