The Empire Chronicles: Rise of The Empire

Exiled by his own people for fear of him becoming a dictator (even though he was nothing but kind and essentially created their utopia) as his future self began terrorizing them and his wife nearly killed him all because he spends more time trying to help his people and prove his innocence rather than be with her and their children. Now, begins his revenge.

A young, shoulder length blond hair woman rode on a horse across a flat grass turf before riding up a hill and she said to herself, “Maybe I should extend the back of the cafeteria and add another living quarters for the children next to it.  That way if they are thirsty late at night they can help themselves.” Once she reached the top of the hill she stopped her horse and looked down at the short extension of the forest below her and the capital city beyond.  She let out a sigh before leaning down and gently stroked the horse’s neck and said, “Maybe I should make a small animal farm instead.  What do you think big girl?” A mono tone voice replied, “Why not both?” She sat up as the horse shook her head and made a sound as if the horse is worried as the woman looked about her till she saw a dark, cloaked figure wearing a mask and what appears to be red lensed goggles standing at the bottom of the hill to her left.  The woman sat rigid on her horse as she slowly moved her right hand out of view and asked the dark figure, “Who are you?” The dark figure replied, “If you still have that Skyler 1911 I suggest you better flip the safety on and off twice in order to disengage, Kayla.” Kayla first looked confused and then wide eyed, as she removed her hand away from her side arm, and spoke, “Michael?” Lord Valkyrie made a single nod and replied, “Yes, but when we are not alone, I am Lord Valkyrie.” Kayla looked up and down at Lord Valkyrie, still astounded, and asked, “Why do you look like that?” Lord Valkyrie replied, “It’s a long story I would not mind telling you.” He indicated his open right, gloved hand towards a large two story log house in the distance and asked, “May we discuss further at your place?” Kayla looked back at her house and at Lord Valkyrie, as she turned her horse back at the house, and replied, “Yes Michael, but Catherine cannot carry you since you are too big with what you are wearing.” Lord Valkyrie spoke, “You go ahead.  I will arrive in time.” Kayla gave Lord Valkyrie a puzzling look and spoke, questionably, “Okay.” And she rode back to her log house.


    Kayla rod up onto the half circle dirt road in front of her house as a horse caretaker stood by and held the reins as she got off her horse.  Kayla turned to a male servant, as he came out the front door, and said, “Prepare Angolian Tea for two.” The servant bowed and asked, “When will our guest be arriving?” Kayla was about to speak till the same monotone voice replied, “Now.” Kayla turned and saw Lord Valkyrie walking up with his black cape trailing behind him, leaving Kayla amazed while the servant and caretaker looked at Lord Valkyrie in fear.  It is uttered silence with only the sounds of chirping birds and the horse breathing till Lord Valkyrie spoke, “You heard the lady.” The servant then shook his head and replied, “Y-Yes.” And he immediately went back inside.  Kayla tried to contain her shock and asked, “How did you....” Lord Valkyrie cut her off, “All in good time.” He indicated to the front door and said, “My lady.” Kayla blushed and she walked up the steps, with Lord Valkyrie following her, as the door opened from the inside and they both entered before the door closed behind them.


    In a private room, Kayla sat in a soft chair across from Lord Valkyrie as she looked down at the floor, grim, as Lord Valkyrie spoke, “Now you understand.” Kayla spoke somberly, “Michael, I am so sorry.” Lord Valkyrie said, “There is nothing to be sorry about.  The only person that should be sorry is my former wife that betrayed me.” Kayla looked up at him, with hurtful eyes, and touched his left, gloved, hand on his knee and said, “I know Michael, but it does not mean that you should become like your future self to end his tyranny.” Kayla felt Lord Valkyrie’s left hand tensed up as he stared at her and replied, “I will not BE like him, but I will give him, Chloe, and the people that betrayed or persecuted me exactly what they wished.  Only I won’t hurt the innocents that are in my path.” Kayla asked, “Are you sure there is no other way?” Lord Valkyrie replied, “There is none.  As I have already said, every time Lord Serenity makes a threat the Zhargosia Republic and sometimes the United Star Systems give into Lord Serenity’s terrorist demands and give him exactly what he wants.  At least they did not wipe out an entire civilization, yet.” Kayla suddenly stood up and stated, “Then I am coming with you.” Lord Valkyrie stood as well and held both her hands when he spoke, “No Kayla.  I do not want you to become tainted by this conflict as it has done to me.” Kayla replied, in a demanding tone, “I can take care of myself.” Lord Valkyrie said, “I do not doubt it, but this coming war will not have room for the soft hearted.” He softly touched her hair with his right hand as he continued, “And I do not want you to change from the kind hearted and giving person that you really are.” Kayla placed her right palm against the left side of Lord Valkyrie’s mask, as if caressing his cheek, as she smiled up at him and said, “Michael.” Lord Valkyrie took her hand and held it up against the mouthpiece of his mask, as if trying to kiss her hand, and Kayla sighed, “If only I can have just one kiss.” Lord Valkyrie replied, “It is possible.” She looked a little astonished as Lord Valkyrie pushed her hand away and the mouthpiece of his mask folded back to reveal a brilliant red light for only a few moments till it dissipated to reveal his lips and cheeks before he leaned over to her and kissed as they both embraced.  The romantic setting became disturbed by a soft beeping sound and Lord Valkyrie pulled back as his mouthpiece enclosed again and pressed a hidden button on the right side of his belt and asked, “What is it?” Captain Cruz’s voice spoke aloud, “My Lord, we have another defect clone situation that requires your full attention.” Kayla stepped back as she sighed silently and Lord Valkyrie replied, “Transport me on my signal.” Captain Cruz confirmed and Lord Valkyrie looked at Kayla, as she stood by and looked out the window and Valkyrie apologized, “I’m sorry Kayla.  I have to go back.” Kayla turned and smiled at him and she said softly, “I know.  Please come back soon.” Lord Valkyrie stated, “You don’t have to wait for me.  Since we are now allies you can request a transport from one of space cruisers and transport ships and the clones will be more than willing to send you to me on Saa.” Kayla held his hands one more time as she leaned up and kissed the mouthpiece of his mask and said, “Thank You Michael.  In the meantime, I’ll pull out my old pink and white uniform and see if it still fits.” Lord Valkyrie replied, “THAT will be most interesting to see.” She blushed as she smiled back at him as she stood back and their hands parted before Lord Valkyrie rested both his hands on his electronic belt and said, “Goodbye, mistress.” Kayla replied, “Goodbye, Michael.” And before her eyes Lord Valkyrie dematerialized.  She turned to look back out the window only to see a small, black and silver, circular device on the chair Lord Valkyrie sat.  Kayla looked curious and she picked up the device and pressed the single red button on the front and a three inch tall blue and black holo image of Lord Valkyrie appeared and Kayla smiled as a single tear ran down her left cheek.
