Ice and Dark
 
 
There were three of us, me and my two best friends since childhood Elliot and Kyle. The three of us did everything together. Elliot’s father was the duke, so he was really of a totally different class from us but it didn’t stop us from being very good friends. Elliot and I eventually were drawn to each other more and more. I’m not even sure when it began but it was very real. But then the wars began and Elliot went off into battle. Death lies in wait for all warriors on the battlefield so Elliot asked his best friend Kyle to take care of Freedert if anything happen to him. “Of course. I’ll take care of her, Elliot. I’ll protect her no matter what happens.” After hearing his promise Elliot left. But Kyle, his own feelings for Freedert drove him mad with jealousy until he felt only hate for his former best friend. Even if Elliot and Freedert lived happily ever after he would never be free of these feelings. So he went to the village’s sacred artwork and protector the Toki No Byoushin. And he prayed for something evil. “Please take away Elliot’s time. I know it’s wrong but I can’t let him have her. If he dies in battle, it will be a hero’s death. And Freedert if only there were no Elliot maybe................”. His wish was granted. During battle Elliot was struck by an arrow and killed. But the arrow didn’t belong to an enemy or ally. According to those who saw it, it was a giant iron spear that looked like the second hand of a clock. When she heard of Elliot’s death Freedert begged the Toki No Byoushin to take her life instead. She prayed, saying “please give all my time to him”. Kyle never even considered that his beloved Freedert would give up her life for Elliot’s sake. When Elliot, restored to life by Freedert’s wish, finally returned, the town had fallen into ruins, the towns people had all vanished and Freedert who had given her own life to save his, was breathing her last. If my life is continuing by her light, I return it all back to her”. Taking the sword that Freedert had given him when he left for the war Elliot thrust it through his own heart. But while Toki No Byoushin could exchange their time it couldn’t create more. It couldn’t restart time that had stopped. I………I’ve made a horrible mistake”. As Elliot lay dying at the base of the Toki No Byoushin the sword Freedert had given him began to glow strangely in his hand. The sword had stopped time in its place waiting for me to return.
