And when there was no hope seemed to have left in the eyes of the warrior and he was settled to start his final journey to the mountains to meet supreme god AAbu, he had met this princess on his way. A frail shivering beauty whose light blind the eyes that set on her. There he had stood and took a vow to stand guard to the defenseless goddess and it is that wow that completely changed his life. From that moment on, every breath he drew, every action he took, every thought he had, had a consideration and it started to form a new reality, a reality that he had never thought possible. And his life for the better or for the worst took a new meaning. It was not the defenseless goddess that had found the protector, but it was the protector that had found a reason to go on.

And when there was no hope seemed to have left in the eyes of the warrior and he was settled to start his final journey to the mountains to meet supreme god AAbu, he had met this princess on his way. A frail shivering beauty whose light blind the eyes that set on her. There he had stood and took a vow to stand guard to the defenseless goddess and it is that wow that completely changed his life. From that moment on, every breath he drew, every action he took, every thought he had, had a consideration and it started to form a new reality, a reality that he had never thought possible. And his life for the better or for the worst took a new meaning. It was not the defenseless goddess that had found the protector, but it was the protector that had found a reason to go on. 

Goddess had seen dreams of love. The warrior had come in her dreams and she had given her away in his arms. Before he met her, the warrior had seen too much blood, too much chaos, too much pain, and his heart had been empty, devoid of desires and fantasies. He had nothing more to see. They that this immortal centuries ago had upset AAbu and he had been turned into a mortal. 

This was no ordinary warrior, and she was no ordinary princess. The warrior who went by the name of Manzu had descended from a clan of demigods that had defeated the Dark Lords of Agilians and had been protectors of 9 realms of peace for over 100,000 years. The princess was called Luna and the legends had it when original Shaitsi gods had descended on earth from stars, the pure light ray of blue has concentrated itself and had created a living consciousness. A god and goddess of Shaitsi themselves had mated two stars and poured in essence of their own blood, to create a chosen lineage of people that would be protectors of all art and beauty on earth. These people by their own choice lived as ordinary farmers passing the unspoken truths and designs blood to blood, heart to heart, unspoken, only to be revealed when the time would be right. Luna had a duty, unknown to her. Luna's own life had been prepared as a series of trials, to  bear the burden of all earth difficulties and give the world the gift and light if she were to make it through the trials. Luna was a broken star manifested as half human half light, in flesh on earth. 

Some say, it was a union of Manzu and Luna that was unapproved by the Goddess Gaia but the Wise One living beneath earth, knew that it was destiny. And destiny herself was afraid what was in the stores for both of them. Manzu had known nothing in his life but harm that he had internalized, to take all pain of Agilians into his own heart. Supreme AAbu forbad him to leave his lands as Manzu's powers were too dangerous, but he had an unsettled soul. He had left his lands anyways and has lost the blessings of AAbu. Manzu had found warmth and he had felt his heart melt from stone to a pure living mercury with Luna's company. Now, he was building a castle, he was hunting oxen, and he was dreaming of lineage.  

Luna knew what's to come next. Being a bearer of starlight, she wanted to harm none. She knew that one day when she is better and strong, she will not stay in that castle, and leave pursuing her own destiny. And warrior will be left alone with nothing left in him to continue his journey to the mountain where he was to be reunited with AAbu. She wanted no guilt on her conscience. 

One night she looked to her forefathers in the stars for guidance. Determined for Manzu to leave, Luna cut a piece of her own soul, and prepared an arrow that would pierce the heart of eternity itself. She pointed that arrow straight at the heart of Manzu and shot at point blank range. It pierced right through. The waves of shock was felt in the entire of 21 eons set apart by the thin veil of time. Manzu fell to ground, confused. His heart was made stone in less than an instance. That  instance when 21 eons in parallel flashed right before his eyes, he knew what had been done. Manzu was no more. Luna realized what she had done, and she wept on the mountain top. Her tears made the shimmering snowcaps that covered the entire mountain ranges as the lasting memory of their forbidden love. Luna's lineage smiled upon her as she had chosen to follow her duty. Manzu had been reunited with AAbu. No one was left to protect the goddess but the goddess was no longer defenseless. As his parting gift, Manzu had left all his powers to be absorbed by Luna, and in that way they had been united forever. ?
