Vladimir’s POV:

I paced in the throne room, rubbing the back of my neck nervously and my eyes darting around. Bahadur and Dimitri were trying to console me, but their efforts were to no avail. I was completely convinced that something bad had happened to Zlo.

“He should have been back by now!” I said, wringing my hands. “You need to have more patience, Vladimir! They will come,” Dimitri said confidently. I ignored him and continued to pace. Bahadur and Windtwist stood in the corner of the room, exchanging an exasperated look.

“Vladimir, trust me! He’ll be…” The doors leading outside slammed open, cutting Bahadur off. Zlo came in carrying a little girl and holding the hand of another older girl. They were covered in frost and shivering violently. Servants rushed forward and gave the two of them blankets, cups of steaming tea, and cookies.

“Zlo, you’re alright!” I sighed, relieved. “Told you,” Dimitri and Bahadur muttered. I rolled my eyes and ran forward, hugging Zlo.

“Now, who is this?” I said, kneeling down in front of the little girl so that we were at the same eye level. She hid behind Zlo’s legs and stuck her head out shyly. “Vladimir, this is Dorota,” Zlo said. I stuck out my hand.

“It’s nice to meet you,” I said, smiling kindly. She shook my hand for a split second before going back behind Zlo. “And this is Alexandria, Dorota’s older sister,” Zlo said, gesturing to the other girl. She did a small curtsy. “It’s a pleasure to meet you,” she said sweetly.

“Please, the pleasure is mine,” I said. The servants ushered the two newcomers upstairs to take them to the rooms they would be staying in. “You know, Alexandria is quite beautiful,” I said, raising an eyebrow at Zlo.

“Not now, Vladimir,” he muttered, turning away. “Zlo, what’s the matter?” Dimitri asked, looking up at Zlo. “I saw Sarah’s ghost. She hates me. When I tried to tell her how Peter died, she wouldn’t believe me,” Zlo sighed.

Rolling my eyes, I said, “Then forget about her! If she hates you even after death, then she isn’t worth crying about!” Zlo shook his head slowly. “Easier said than done, Vladimir, easier said than done.”

Zlo’s POV:

I was directed to one of the rooms upstairs and I went up gladly. I was exhausted! The time differences were really getting to me! I smiled widely as I entered the room. Everything and I mean everything was silver and blue! The bed, the curtains, the dresser, the desk, and even the windows were tainted blue! I collapsed on the bed and sighed with content as I sunk into the soft mattress.

I stood back up and picked out a set of new clothes. After changing out of my soggy, cold, wet outfit, I slipped those on and sat on the edge of the bed.

“Looks like you’re settling in nicely,” Liam said, appearing from underneath the bed. I gasped and tucked my legs in. “Are you stalking me?!” I hissed. Liam chuckled softly, shaking his head.

“’Course I’m not stalking you! Why would I do that? You aren’t interesting enough to stalk!” he said plainly. I stared at him blankly, and he sighed. “I’m just kidding,” he said.

“Right. Like I’m going to trust anything you say now,” I muttered, turning away from him. “Zlo, don’t be like that! I’m sorry I didn’t tell you sooner!” Liam said desperately, kneeling down in front of me. It was strange, seeing the slightly-older boy kneel in front of me. It didn’t feel right.

“Let me ask you this. If you had met me on the battlefield, would you have killed me? Or would you have spared my life?”

“…”

“Liam! Answer me!”

“No.”

“Liam!!”

“Fine! Yes, I would have killed you! Are you happy now?!” Liam growled, standing back up and brushing off his pants as if the floor was disgustingly dirty, which it wasn’t! I sat there, shocked.

“Why?” I asked, even though I already knew the answer. “It was my duty as general to kill the enemy, no matter our relation to them.”

“Oh.”

“Yeah, pretty depressing stuff, huh?” Liam scoffed. I shrugged, feeling slightly disturbed. “Why did you come here?” I asked Liam, staring at him intently. I noticed that he wasn’t wearing all black, and his eyes were a bright green.

“I wanted to apologize, and to tell you that I’ve changed. I’m not a Dark Elf anymore,” he said. “W…what?” I asked, shocked. I am getting shocked a lot lately now that I think about it.

“You heard me. If you ask me why one more time, I swear I’m going to shove this lamp up your nose!” Liam said when he saw my mouth open to ask another question. And just like that, he was gone. He completely disappeared. “I’m going crazy,” I said, rubbing my eyes.  

“Yes you are, Zlo,” a voice hissed. Liam reappeared, his hand raised to strike me. I screamed, and then everything went black.
