Set in the World of Warcraft Universe, this is a tale about 2 young lovers in the Scarlet Crusade torn apart by fate and death.


Jake is a young and kind-hearted member of the Scarlet Crusade who falls in love with his childhood friend Rachel, but the two of them are eventually torn apart when Jake is killed and raised into undeath, eventually becoming one of the Forsaken.

However, their paths eventually cross yet again...


8. Reunited



For two months Jake kept to his cabin aboard the ship. He tried repeatedly to contact Rachel, but he found out that she had become Abbendis’ assistant, and no one but Abbendis herself or her officers were allowed to talk to Rachel.

So Jake laid low to avoid suspicion, and continued waiting.


The members of the crusade, now renamed to the Scarlet Onslaught by Abbendis, finally arrived at Northrend and began building a base on the shores of Dragonblight, which Abbendis named New Hearthglen.

All the while, Jake kept his magical amulet close and followed his orders, used to the rhythm of the Crusade’s work.

New Hearthglen was completed within two weeks and Jake was assigned to the barracks. He still could not get close to Rachel during the day, so at night he snuck out and tried to find her.

Jake discovered that Rachel liked to go down to the beach at night, at a secluded cove. He decided to make his move after two nights of watching her sitting alone at the cove.

He slowly approached her, and she did not notice him, lost in her thoughts until Jake called out her name.

She turned to face him, her weariness evident in her voice. “What is it? I wish to be left alone.”

“Rachel, it’s me.” Jake replied. He took out his amulet and crushed it in his palm, revealing his true form. “Jake.”

Rachel looked upon his rotting flesh, his bones, and pitch-black armor, and opened her mouth to scream. Jake quickly strangulated her with dark magic, but he was careful not to apply too much pressure, so that he would only silence her and not hurt her. He ran up to her and grabbed her, lifting her off her feet, and carried her out into the water.

Rachel kicked and struggled against Jake, but he ignored her blows and formed ice crystals under his feet, to walk on the water, and carried Rachel away to a secluded section of the coast, where they were out of earshot of the Onslaught.

Jake set her down and released the stranglehold he had on her throat. She immediately leapt at him, drawing her sword.

“Filthy beast!’ She screamed at the top of her lungs, and tried to strike him. “How dare you claim to be him!”

Jake drew his runeblade and parried her blow. Unfazed, Rachel continued swinging away at him, yelling in rage, and Jake continued deflecting her blows, never counterattacking. This continued for a good ten minutes, until Rachel, exhausted, slumped to the ground, in tears.

Jake’s heart bled for Rachel when he saw her in such a pathetic state. He set his runeblade down and knelt beside her, hugging her.

“It’s really me, Rachel,” he whispered to her. “Remember when we both turned 19, we had our first kiss at the beach at night, just like this? We promised to be together forever. No one else could have known that.”

“H-how is it possible?” Rachel said, choking on her tears. “What happened to you?”

“It’s…a long story,” Jake replied.

Rachel embraced Jake, still crying. She hesitated when she touched his rotting skin at first, but her emotions took over and she hugged him tightly. “Oh Jake…I should have stayed with you that day…I never should have left you…”

Rachel wept, letting out all of her pent up sorrow and furstration. “It’s been hell these three years in the Crusade without you, all that fighting, all that killing, I don’t want a part of it anymore!”

Jake listened in silence as Rachel poured her heart out. He hushed Rachel and held her closer to him. “Everything will be fine now, Rachel. You’re going to be okay. I just need you to help me end this.”
