The Champion: The Legend of the White Magnolia

(("I love good and pleasure, I hate evil and pain, I want to be happy and I am not mistaken in believing, that people, angels and even demons have those same inclinations."
- Nicolas Malebrance))


Demons and Angels have always fought each other, ever since the first sun rose up, they have sought to kill one another. In every single history book, they will be mentioned shedding the opposites blood. It is inevitable.

But also, in such history books, a single person is mentioned. A Hero. A Savior. A Champion.

Adrian

 

“I'm sure you all know why I've brought you all here,” Dux Kahan said, as he stood on a tall podium and looked down at the Demons filling the room.

Adrian stood next to the podium and looked out on the gathering. It was impressive how they all managed to be in this large room.

“The comet has been sighted, and reports says that the Venántium have gathered inside of the Bluecliffs in the Ceruleanbay,” Dux Kahan said and took a deep breath. He knew what was coming and he had to keep his calm.

“The end of the war is nearing!” He shouted and raised a fist, as everyone around gave loud yells in hoorays.

Adrian looked up at Kahan, whom tried to hide his own smile and kept the serious expression, although Adrian himself couldn't help but to smile too. The war was finally coming to an end. He had been born into the war, and wished to see it end.

As the cheering calmed down, Kahan spoke again. “But don't think this means that we're done fighting! We will still raise our weapons against the Angelus! We will still keep up our stance! We are not done fighting yet!” Again a cheer filled the room, yet this time it was more of a battle cry.

“Ready your arms, men! Because tomorrow, we fight!” He grabbed his own plasma-rifle, and raised it into the air, and the crowd followed along.

This meant that the break in fire between the Demons and Angels had now passed.

As Dux Kahan walked down from the podium, he waved Adrian along. “Come Nuntius, I need to talk to you in private.”


 

One of the caves had been equipped with a curtain for privacy and a large table with a map of Earth on it. The dim light came from a smaller fire that was blazing from a hole in the wall. It had grown dark outside, and tomorrow was going to be a dark day for all.

“Nuntius Adrian,” Kahan started off with and it gave Adrian chills whenever he said his name. “I don't want you joining the battle tomorrow, as you are aware, Nuncii aren't allowed to fight in battles such as the oncoming one.” He bend over the table and looked down at the map and at all the red flags for where their men were stationed.

“Then what do you want me to do, Dux Kahan?” Adrian too leaned over the table and looked at Landhall on the map.

“I need you to make sure that everyone knows about the nearing end of the war. Make sure that everyone in every city, Daemonum and Angelus and Mortalis, everyone knows that the Vindicem have been found.” He stood up from the table and went to a smaller one with drawers. From one of the drawers he pulled out a smaller and less detailed map.

“Here. Take this, a map of all of Terrae. I want you to go to every destination, every city, town, village. Every habited place.” Kahan handed him the map and kept repeating how important this task was, no matter how insignificant it seemed.

“Once you've done as I ask, I want you to find the Vindicem, and I want you to offer him your services.” He had the most serious look that Adrian had ever seen. It was an unfortunate turn on. “Understood?”

“Yes sir, Dux Kahan.” Adrian spoke hesitantly and took a deep breath as to calm his beating heart.

“Good. You will leave in the morning as soon as the sun rises.”

Adrian looked up at him. “Can I assist you with anything else?” he asked, although he wanted him to say both yes and no.

He was tired and knew that his new task was going to be exhausting, but on the other hand he enjoyed the company of this particular Dux.

“Yes, actually...” Dux Kahan's expression changed to something less hard and cold, but Adrian couldn't quite put his finger on what it was.

“If you would follow me,” Kahan said and walked through the curtain.

Adrian quickly followed and became intrigued with what he could possibly do, as he had only asked for being polite towards this Legend of a Daemonum. They spread their wings and flew off to the other side of the canyon, where it was mostly confined bedchamber's, and Adrian felt his heart beat like mad as they neared one of the “rooms”.

This room looked very much like his own; a curtain for privacy, a single bed and a flame lighting up the room from its spot in the wall.

Dux Kahan was quick to take off his shirt. As excited as Adrian was by this, he was also surprised, when Kahan quickly walked up to him and began kissing him.

“Don't say anything. I might die tomorrow, or the day after that. I don't wish my last calm night to be wasted.” Was all Dux Kahan said as he pulled the shirt off of Adrian.

Adrian didn't protest and gladly went with it.
