A man enters the room. "Sir, I just wanted to congratulate you on your victory." The other man turns his head slightly from the window. " Thank you. But how many times have I asked you to call me by name." "Sorry Jacob." "You did good out there today Litherion especailly when your commanding officecer was killed, you took charge and led the men well. That's why I'm promoting you to colonel. You'll be in command of the second battalion." Litherion smiled brightly. "T-thank you sir, I mean Jacob. I won't let you down." Jacob gave him a small nod and turned his back facing the window. "Any orders?" "Execute the royal family that resided here. No elf allowed after dark. And we need to fix the gates to the city." "What about the elfs that worked here in the castle?" Jacob thought for a minute. " Leave them to their duties they'll can help us clean up the castle and keep it maintained till we hear from General Draxion and at night lock them in there rooms with guards stationed out in their hall ways." "Think they can be trusted?" "Probaly not. But I need my men doing more important stuff then cleaning up this place the whole time we're here." "Yes Jacob." Litherion Walked out of the room shutting the door behind him. Jacob walked over to the chair by the fire place and sat down. The seige for the city went on six days before they finally managed to to conquer the city. During which left Jacob little time to sleep. His eyes grew heavy sitting there he tried to fight it. Because there was still much more to do. They had five more major cities to take over before they reached the capitol of the elf territory. This was the first time in fifty years that the humans manged to take over a elf city in a hundred year long war. Jacob went to push himself up but failed and finally fell asleep.
