The Seventh King of Gauna

By the lake not in this world or another, a man sits by its frozen banks as water fails to break its surface. In the sky, sun is non-existant. Like his life, it fades. As a symbol of his will, it is bleak. With his Nightsmen he continues his journey along the borders of Xiching and Joseon, rallying his supporters against their Hierarchical rule and the six dynasties of Gauna, but a way to destroy their power evades their grasps and instead they remain prisoners to the shade. When set on the trail of a supposed messenger from others who defied their king in the Taoshi region in no-man’s land, they come across many of the exiled and run-away citizens victim to the regional regime. Among them, a young herbalist named Saeji had sought out the no-mans land to escape the evil reign of Chosheon who had executed her entire family in order to rid their kingdom of traitors.


10. Illusions of Tomorrow

The happenings of my daily life hadn’t been forgiving on my safe place, and instead of a peaceful resting place it became tainted red as the water in the lake joined with the bloodshed of my reality, and with that the crystal blue water turned crimson red reminding me of the damage I’d done others.


In my reality, I didn’t care, I couldn’t care, but I’d like to think here I could show another side to that facade. Deep down, I regretted the lives I took.


Saeji wasn’t with me this time, she’d run away after seeing who I really was, what I could really do.


I suppose it my illusion of tomorrow that everything would get better, now I had escaped, now I had no clouds over-looming. The illusions of our delusions, sleep to death because the living are no longer breathing.


Then everything that seemed possible became distant, then everything became unfair. Like everything else in their god forsaken world.
