A gentle hearted fighter travels as a holy rider sent on a mission to make the world brighter. Her heart is pure and she rests easy knowing she holds the cure for the decaying affects of fear. From the promised holy land to the poisoned wasteland, she knows her journey is vast so she must move fast to reach the sick at last. She hears the clicking in her mind of the ticking of her time left to help those diseased by their greed and in need of healthy words to heed. Worried about being too late to end their state of perpetual hate before the dark beast commandeers their fate, she makes haste knowing every second she wastes means another life erased. She strives to save lives as soon as she arrives, but her fear draws near and it becomes clear that she is a mere mortal here. Her presence in this land has buried her angelic essence in the sand. The angel of hope now must cope with death just before she releases her final breath as a feast for the dark beast. The doom of humanity’s existence was met with resistance but could not be matched in persistence, for evil had consumed its potential for assistance. Dead to the core, the world was no more.
