Iryn, a human girl,her troid father Alar, and her human friend Amaya, decided to go on a quest to look for the legendary Dark Sword. This is the story of their adventure.


13. Chapter 11

Iryn took the paper and started reading it :


"From the darkness it came and to the darkness it went.

To the one with a dark soul but a bright heart it belong.

It will rise from the darkness if it meets its keys.

Where the darkness have a strong hand

Where nature is served in the bright land

Where the bloody rose floats in gold

Where the health sinks its roots

Where fire meets water but none of them loose

Together they bring it to the light

To who's soul is dark and heart is bright"


"That doesn't make any sens! Are you sure this translation is correct?" Amaya asked.

"Yes" He took the paper from Iryn's hand and went through it again.

"I think it's a riddle" Alar finally spoke, he took the paper from Ruvel and put it in the middle of the table "From the darkness it came and to the darkness it went, I think it's the Dark Sword, it came from darkness, that is Underrealm, and now it's hidden in the Dark Tower, so it went to darkness"

"Yes, that makes more sens now!" Iryn said with a big smile on her face.

"So the next line must be talking about king Harold, the 'it' refers to the sword, and the sword belongs to him" said Amaya.

"It could also be referring to the alvic king who can inherit Harold's sword" said Ruvel.

"So what do dark soul and bright heart mean?" Iryn asked in confusion.

"I think it's the criteria of the new sword owner" Alar answered after a moment of silence.

Iryb looked at Alar "So if we know the meaning of a dark soul and a bright heart, we could know if king Lithonion is the owner of the sword right?"

"But we don't know the meaning, It's not that important, for now at least, let's analyze the rest of the riddle." said Amaya.

Iryn nodded "Ok, so the next part seems to be about the keys locations, see? five places for five keys! So if we can solve this part, we'll know where to  find the keys and then we'll be able to get the Dark Sword"

They all focused on the last part of the riddle until Ruvel broke the silence "I don't know about the rest of the lines, but this one seems very familiar to me..." he cupped his chin and frowned.

"Really? Why is that?" Iryn asked.

"When I was a kid, before ... that incident, father took me to a secret room in the castle, he said that every Ivon should know about it because it's our family's legacy... He said, even though I'm an abomination and a disgrace, but I still an Ivon" a hint of sadness crossed Ruvel's face, then he continued "The inside of the room is all made of pure gold, walls, ceiling, floor, there is no windows, it was full of many treasures that was passed down from generation to generation, but the thing that caught my attention that time was a red gem, a ruby I guess, it was the size of an apple, floating in mid-air, it was covered with a cylinder made of glass, in the base of the cylinder was a luminous drawing, a spell for sure."

"So you think that the bloody rose in the riddle is that ruby in your castle's secret room?" Iryn asked

"I'm not sure, but what I know about that ruby is that it was in the possession of the last king of the Ivon dynasty"

"Which means the Moon elf king who was alive in the time of king Harold" Added Amaya

Ruvel Nodded "Yes, maybe he gave it to him as a sign of truce or something."

"So, there is a huge possibility that this ruby is the key" Iryn said with excitement.

"But he wouldn't give it to us, would he? Being his family's legacy and all" Said Alar with a calm voice then looked at Ruvel, who was deep in thoughts.

"Ruvel?" Iryn looked at him.

"I'm sorry, I can't...I just can't give it you and let you go with it. I may have problems with my family but i'm still one of them, It's my duty to protect our legacy. I want to help you but..."

"How about coming with us?" Amaya suddenly asked him, he was taken aback by her unexpected question.

Iryn smiled "Yes, you're genius Amaya, this way Ruvel can protect the key, he can keep it with him all the time, and when we finish, he can take it back with him. What do you think Ruvel?"

"I.. don't know..."

"Please come with us, it will be lots of fun!" Iryn came closer to Ruvel and looked at him with puppy eyes, her face was few inches away from his, he blushed and looked away "I ... have to find the secret room... I just went there once, and it was long time ago"

"Yahoo! Ruvel is coming with us!" Iryn started jumping, then she remembered that she is in a library, she looked around and found some elves looking at her with piercing eyes. She covered her mouth with her hand and sat on her chair.
