Inside the palace, Soris was talking to his father. The king seemed to have forgotten about the morning quarrel. He was looking, relaxed but focused, at some documents. They were in a modest-sized room with two desks, and wooden furniture adorned with decorative sculptures. On the floor, a dark red carpet emphasized the sensation of […]
Selunia sat alone, deeply sunken into her thoughts. The car had been stopped at a crossing because the general had something to verify nearby. She, at least for that moment, didn’t long for the White Castle, the place that had been her home for twelve years and, in fact, even more—taking into account the years […]
Shortly after finishing with the small office matters, Soris went to one of his favorite places in the palace: the superior terrace. It was a large terrace situated on the third level.

Selunia was in her room in full swing. Helped by Elis, she was packing her luggage. The Arid Kingdom was a country where she had spent a part of her early childhood. The Ardensis family ruled over the Arid Kingdom and she was going to live in their palace, just like before.
Selunia let out a sigh, then raised one hand in the air, aimed it at Elis like a gun, and concentrated on the attack.

Selunia wanted to be cautious.
