Hopes Bright! Heal the Heart

Blurb

Le Alba: the land of peaceful twilight became a corrupt society on the brink of war. To save the people , the Magical Liberation council formed guilds that would perform music to the people and go on missions that would keep them from the dangers of the shadow world. One of the most famous of these guilds was Twilight Heart. From hostile attacks to Anti-Government Guilds, aiming to bring mass destruction, every moment is an adventure. But when a CSOG assassin Perez, threatens to revive the Dark Oviri Darkyn, Noori and Pennie will have to accept a truth from the past that they wasn’t ready to face and overcome their fears if they hope to heal the hearts of those who have lost their way.

Prologue- Is This The End?

The red moon shone upon them. It was the same colour as the blood that covered the ground.

War, Devastation and pain. That was all that remained.

Pennie looked down at her shaken hands. She tried to stand but her legs were too weak. Blood trickled down her cheek. Through a blurred vision she looked up at her attacker.

The malicious man laughed at their misfortune. His glowering glare kept Pennie entrapped with fear. It was as if all of her confidence was consumed by the Phoenix Oviri’s Red demonic eyes. The black scar across the left side of his face made him seem even more dominating.

“I’m Sorry…” Lynx muttered crouched next to her in pain, “If only I was a full Elemental, this wouldn’t have happened.”

Pennie shook her head, her eyes becoming teary. She could not speak as her heart raced.

“It wouldn’t have mattered if you were!” Demon laughed with a high pitched squeak, “No mere mortal stands a chance against the Phoenix Demon!”

Pennie’s limbs ached. She knew they never had a chance. It was foolish of them to think otherwise. Their time was up once they engaged in the battle. Even if she had Nooriya by her side, it wouldn’t have been enough. Even though it hurt, she wished he was there. So at least she could die along side him.

Her stupid pride got in the way. She had thought that fighting Demon would be her chance to protect the one she loved. But she was wrong. Once she was dead, the evil Phoenix would go after him. She had failed, failed to be anything more than worthless.

“I know I say this a lot,” Pennie said with tears, “but this time it really is the end… isn’t it?”

Lynx said nothing but nodded.

Pennie gave a weak smile. Deep down she still wished that Noori would jump in and save her, like he always did. But this time it wasn’t going to happen. There was no hope. The war was going to destroy everything she cared about. Not even A.V herself could save them now.

She closed her eyes as the final spell of destruction came hurtling towards them.
