A shrill scream wailed from behind a closed, intricately carved wooden door. The noise echoed through the halls, haunting its way into every corridor. The sound was an unsettling one; it was more of an animalistic screech than anything. On the other side of this door waited a great and wise man, an elf, Lord Elrond, master of Rivendell. He stood in silence, patiently waiting to be admitted, to see the child that had just been born to his dear friend, Amaeria. She had asked this of him, and so he would oblige willingly, but the cry of the newborn child had disturbed even him. It reminded him of a sound that put fear into the heart of even the strongest willed men, no matter their race; the dreaded, hissing caw of the Nazgûl.
Upon this thought, the door wrenched open and the maiden on the other side came stumbling out, nearly crashing into him. The look on her face was by far even more horrifying than the sound of the wailing child. The woman was obviously distraught and s

The soldiers stood there somberly in the shadows. I pulled Elizabeth as close to me as possible, not caring that her blood stained me. My mind went blank and all I could feel was my heart breaking with each second passing. No, it wasn’t just breaking, it was twisting like a snake, aching like a bullet wound, shattered like glass. All I could feel was the weight of my anguish crushing me, burying me alive. I was instantly over come with grief, but I kept my daughter in mind, knowing I still had her. Mary… Poor Mary, she would grow up without her mother… This was my fault. It was my fault… The Fuhrer had warned me about this, and I hadn’t listened. If I had let the military keep the stone, if I had listened to Elizabeth, she would still be alive right now. I couldn’t just let the military make weapons though. I was responsible for the death of my wife and the mother of my child…. This was my fault&

I sat there, gazing at the stone, glowing a bright blood red in the light of the lamp as my wife spoke to me. Her words trailed from my memory just as soon as she said them. The jewel before me demanded my absolute attention as my thoughts consumed me. All my life, I thought I had known the world so well, its religions, the military, the secrets to earth’s creation, but all I knew was absolutely wrong.

I was fragile, small, like a feather in existence, or even less, I was just a speck of dirt in the vastness of space. No, that was what all of the human existence was, now that I knew the truth. Those military goons that had used the Cor Omnium, o

Tears fell free from my eyes as he slid from my arms onto the cold, wet ground. He gritted his teeth from the pain of the bullet wound in his side. I tried desperately to stop the blood flow, but instead, he pulled me to him.
‘’Why? Why the hell did you do this,’’ I questioned him through my tears.
‘’I told you I would do whatever it took to protect you,’’ he replied weakly.
‘’I promised you that because…’’ he trailed off only to breathe painfully. With each second that passed, I could feel his pain, almost as if it were him holding me in his arms with a bullet wound, not the other way around, the way it was.
‘’Only you have the power to undo what’s been done,’’ he whispered. I pulled him even closer to me as his voice grew weaker and his strength diminished.
‘’You are Lucifer’s angel…’’
