All Hail Barracutus *On Hold*

War is ripe for the planet of Sempiterna. For generations the twelve major tribes/species (Unless you believe in the tales of the Wizards who say there are thirteen) have very little knowledge of the meaning of the word "peace". Only recently has the tribe of the Svets Deus brought about an era of peace.
In the meanwhile, Barracutus, a normal Kyanos Diamon, struggles to solve the past about the ancient forefathers of Sempiterna. Though could the knowledge of the ancient forefathers be a bigger mystery than he had originally thought it to be? Read throughout to uncover the history of Sempiterna in the first book of an epic trilogy.

6. Chapter 4: Gladiators' Departure

As Barracutus walked down with Horribleecus and Figmus to the meeting point, they saw Eusebius waiting graciously upon them. "I would have expected you sooner." Eusebius stated aloud.

Figmus and Horribleecus explained themselves as to why they were late. "We meant no offense to keep you waiting." they replied.

Eusebius closed his eyes for a moment and took a deep breath. He then said calmly, "And none was taken. Come now, we have prepared your departure." Eusebius pointed at the large dragon with a chain around its neck. On the chain was a closed in wagon. It had two wheels on the back and the rims were gilded in dragon scales. The outside appearance was like a small house carved out of a single piece of the strongest yet lightest minerals rarely found anymore. Inside, there were paintings and smooth chairs. It was magnificent for those who were just being their guests. "Also, Xeterex will be coming along with you to keep you company. He didn't want to miss a chance on the honor of speaking with possibly the greatest philosopher of our time."

The three Diamons and Xeterex climbed up in and sat at the ornate table with elegantly etched dragons' heads at the feet. Once the gates had opened, Yonas the Zealot unsheathed his sword and laid it down by his feet. In response, Eusebius took the sword and thrust it upright in the ground. Such an act had never been seen by the Diamons since the last war had begun because it was a signal of peace, trust, and at at times... forgiveness. After Yonas had given his farewells, the dragons and their 'carriages' set off for the capital, Heaven's Peak.

"I would have expected to be walking to your capital." Figmus pronounced to Xeterex in a relieving tone.

Xeterex returned jokingly, "Well, if you would wish to do so, you are welcome. For the night, it may be wise if we were to relax and sleep. Tomorrow we will have much to engage in." The three Kyanos Diamons nodded in agreement. Xeterex showed them each to their own chambers. It was very different for a Diamon to have a bed softer than rocks to begin with.

When the second sun began to rise, Figmus and Horribleecus woke up only to see Barracutus and Xeterex playing a form of chess as they spoke about philosophy. Barracutus was continuing to speak until Horribleecus interrupted, "Isn't it a little early to be teaching this early?"

"It is never too early to do anything. However, ironically it may be too late to do something." Barracutus stated proudly.

Xeterex then spoke out and suggested, "Perhaps we should do something else. Barracutus is right however, it may be too late if we keep pushing it off. At least, that's what I believe he meant when he made his proposition."

"Essentially, yes. I wouldn't have said it any other way myself." Barracutus then said. Horribleecus thought to himself, "Great now I have two of them to deal with."

Xeterex looked around and then he paused once he saw Barracutus's dragon staff. It was superior in everything it was designed to be, perfectly carved and crafted down to the smallest iota. "Where did you get that?" Xeterex questioned.

"It was something I have been working on for a long time now." Barracutus responded humbly.

"He is too modest," Figmus declared and continued, "For such detail to be put into that, it would have taken the average person at least twice the amount of time."

Suddenly, Eusebius came in. He stated that they had decided to give the dragons a rest and that they should enjoy the scenery. So, the four hopped out into the rolling plains that seemed to go on forever without anything in sight. However, even in all its beauty, it was nothing compared to the sight that they would have been taken by before the last war. Even still, the wildlife was still trying to retain its former glory. Small patches of Sempiterna's crystalline trees were starting to grow back though.

When the passengers got off, the Svets Deus then tended to the dragons. The ten Kyanos Diamons then met in the middle of the whole commotion. Once all of them were present, Eusebius greeted the Diamons to make sure they were being treated well. All the Diamons responded very positively saying they had been making off just fine. After hearing the enthusiastic returns, Eusebius told them they would be ready to continue their journey soon enough and left.

The ten warriors of Kyanos Diamons recollected their thoughts to tell of each others' experiences.  Each story being unique in itself, at least in the eyes of a Diamon. The ten were like brothers of any kind. When the ten had to get on their separate wagons again, it was obvious to see they had disliked the thought of it, but they knew they would see each other the next day.
