Darkest Star, Brightest Shadow

There are some times in life where even the brightest of stars can become so dark and corrupt, that they are unstoppable. It is at this time of peril that a nobody, an insignificant little shadow, must step up to face the enemy. Umbra. Umbra must step up, and become the brightest of all shadows...


27. Two weeks later (Epilogue)

Umbra sat with the surviving members of Carnelian's team after the funerals of Marcus, and Tide. Petal was in tears, the loss of her soul love too antagonising to bear. The others were silent in respect, and Umbra recalled, only too well, that moment when Thorn had told him about their victory. Carnelian had defeanded a dying Lazarus, and had somehow dragged both himself and the prince over to Aquila once the battle had finished - two minutes after the death of Talen. For this, the royals had forgiven Carnelian and his friends. For saving their son. Thier heir. Petal had stayed with Tide's body until the finish, at which point she had collapsed and cried. Prophet, still with no thumb, had found Marcus's body and dragged it back to Carnelian. Jet had helped Thorn to carry Umbra back, and Aquila had healed his friends. Most of the fatally wounded from the main army died, for Aquila couldn't heal them all in their last hours. Yet... They had won. They had actually won. But each of them still remembered the pain. For Umbra, the only thing that stopped him going crazy was Thorn. She didn't seem much different now she had wings. Still beautiful though. Umbra slipped away from his friends, leaving Thorn there. He wanted to speak with Zephyr.


"Did you know who Thorn was?" he asks quietly. I sigh.

"I knew she was different." I reply truthfully. "But I had no idea she was a dark angel who'd lost her wings."

"Yes... But they grew back. So now she's happier, which is good." Umbra tells me, and I feel his sinking heart at the funerals of his friends.

"Do you want to go for a fly? You know, to honour them." I ask. Umbra looks up at me and smiles.

"You bet..."
