Kaelin moved through the trees quickly, her heart racing. She knew something was wrong but she could not seem to figure out what it was. Something was waiting for her on the other side… something bad. Finally clearing the last row of trees, she came to a stop and gasped in horror. Before her lay a battlefield strewn with the bodies of fallen knights, “What happened?” she choked out.
“Kae,” a hoarse voice called out to her.
“Jayden!” she cried and ran to him.
“I’m sorry,” he coughed as she stared at him in horror. He was covered in blood and pale as the moon above.
“Jayden, hang on…” she begged, tears streaming down her face.
“I should have never accepted the mission.”
“Jayden!” she screamed as he became lifeless.
“NO!” Kaelin screamed, sitting up in her bed.
