Julianne looked out to the lake. It was breath taking. Such beauty it possessed seemed to take all your problems away. The wind blew across their protected land. It was wonderful to the touch. Nothing beats fresh air. She leaned on the railings of the small hut that over looked the lake. Why couldn't the rest of the world just stay like this? Why did the Shadows have to devour lands? She knew the answer to her question. For Dominance, For Survival. it had been 5 years since the Shadows had invaded her town of Pavel. The Salvus' had defeated them and brought back Pavel. The only problem was They're were only a minimal amount of inhabitants in the town.
She remembered that Salvus had helped them rebuild their town. The buildings, Houses. It was easy for Salvus given that they did discover their powers. Why did The Shadows only devoured these places or why did they start off from towns such as Pavel or Fabre? Anne has a theory that these places held a huge amout of magic in them, in the land. And that the shadows, After their massive defeat from the First Salvus, had grown weak and converted that land magic into dark magic to feed themselves. That would explain why the inhabitants of the villages had magic in them. It was only a theory, something Julianne made herself believe to make sense of it all.
Anne then turned her head and looked behind her.
This place was their training grounds. Where they trained their trainees. Just basics until they learn their true power. Inside the deep, thick and luscious forest was a Waterfall, It was the perfect place to be one with nature.
The waterfalls was just a simple water fall and yet it was refreshing. Many of the Salvus liked to go her after an encounter with the shadows. But as beautiful as this place was it was prone to sudden Shadow attacks for beyond that Thick forest was the ruins of Fabre, where the shadows make their reign and prepare for world domination.
It was a given fact that the shadow will be hard to beat because of their current leader: Vexus. The Slavus needed to train hard. They needed to make their magic and fighting skills higher.
She walked to the table at the center of the small hut and layed down the map of Fabre and the Cities neighboring it. She read out loud. "Menona City" It was a small City and this was where the Shadows had every attacked after their massive defeat. According to the information gathered the first stone was under Spirit Academy. But what would make this journey harder was that these Stones of Ler existed in enclosed universes, Universes where the shadows have dominated. It would be a risky, given that the Shadows were expanding their territories via their enclosed universe. They didn't know what to expect in that enclosed universe. They had to traverse the thick forest and follow west to get to Menona. It was a long walk but they knew they had to do this. All they know is that they needed to retrieve those stones and defeat, once more, the shadows.
As she raised her head she turned to the house of the Salvus, A place where they could rest. It was like a dorm of some sort. It was a place for them to stay while discovering their powers. once their trainees had discovered them, they would be on their way. She worried for their trainees and the rest of them at this point they needed more than just strength to win this war.
Julianne enjoyed this veiw while it lasted. Once they started their journey for the stones this place too would be devoured by the shadows. it was such a shame. She leaned once more on the railings of the small hut and looked up. the world would be devoured again and it was their chance to stop it.
