Lisa, sat down on the rocks, "It's over." She let out a deep sigh. Wrapping her father's blue cloak around her upper body. It had been fifteen years since shad had sat here; last time, she was her father, brother, and uncle. Then the war started, and one by one, she lost them all. Lisa's eyes began to water as she watches the sun start its descent behind the mountains in front of her, slowly getting lost in her memoirs. Lisa remembers how they talk about how the four of them would unite the four empires, not destroy them.

She wipes the tears from her cheek and pulled her father's cape tighter around her body, shaking. Though she couldn't tell where the shaking was coming from, was it because she was sad? Or is she. losing control of her anger, again. She took in a couple of deep breaths, her remembering her failure in the City Xu. A quarter of the city, gone, destroyed by her rage. Lisa's body began to shiver as the sun fell deeper behind the mountain. She released her grip on her father's cloak; it was time.

Lisa stood up, looking at her arms as her father's cloak dropped to the ground, showing what remained of her twisted and broken body. Her arm the worst, badly scarred and burned. She let out a grunt as she forces herself to walk on her shattered legs, her body trembling with her every step. Stopping just shy of the cliff's edge, she gave her father's corpse a weak glance.

"Your Majesty!" A man shouted from behind. Lisa Glance back to see one of her top generals struggling to keep his footing.

"Glory to the fifth." Lisa smiled as the wind gave her a push, and the light disappeared.
