The battle between Avalon and the place that many referred to as Sagurum, had been going on for many years without end. There were even rumours that the battle had been a planned event in an attempt for the two lands to rid themselves of the half breeds who polluted their population. If the battle were to have end, the winner, if you could call it that after all the death and bloodshed, would become all the more influential over the other. A highly respected and longed for power by both nations. ~ A young man, who was better known as the second Prince and second heir to the Sagurum throne, was placed kneeling before the King with his head bowed respectfully towards the floor. "Your Highness," he stated softly. "You summoned me?" The Prince was dressed in simple, modest attire that was a pair of dull khaki hunting trousers and matching vest, with a loose white tunic tucked in beneath. The only show in his clothes that he was of royal blood being the minute work patterns of the outline of the family crest, done up in silver thread. Most of what he wore held similar bearings. The King nodded his head in affirmation. "You will leave immediately to the camps at the site of our great battle in place of your elder brother. You will act as co-general on his behalf and thus also be taking responsibilities on the field." And that was it. With a wave of his father's hand he was dismissed and sent to his death. Many would have believed it to be a noble service and great sacrifice if they were to die in such a way, but he knew that in truth his father was only getting rid off him to make room for his brother to rise to the throne. His body had stiffened at the news but he only nodded shortly and left, never looking up even once to look at the man he hardly knew. He had been escorted back to his chambers and was now being assisted by a servant as he packed several belongings into a bag. The sound of tires crunching across the gravel outside brought his attention to the present. He smiled to himself and dismissed the servant. His means of transportation had arrived, and he was willing to bet that they had a new, magically enchanted sword for him as well.
