The sun was so large it looked as if it could burst, the king was please to awaken once again to his beautiful empire. Looking down from his glorious balcony almost 80 feet in the air, he could see the townspeople bustling around they're morning routines. He sighed softly as he continued to gaze upon his beautiful land. Until it was interupted by his servant William, " Sire, we must get you dressed and ready for the Council, they wish to speak with you immediately, it seemed pretty urgent my lord. ", William said this with a bow, and the King came to his side and put a hand on his shoulder, " Well then I guess we should probably get the day started then, ay' William? ", He said this as if he was speaking to an old friend, which he pretty much was. William had been at his side ever since he was a boy, when he took the place of his father.
Achileas wandered over towards the robe room as he liked to call it, he gazed upon the wall to wall closet that held all his regal attire and smiled with pride. It had taken him years to find the materials to make such clothing. Once again he raised his arms, and William began to undress him. He quickly chose the set of clothes he wished to wear that day, knowing he could change them at any time, it didn't take him long to decide.
After getting dressed, he left his bedroom and began making his way to the Council's chambers. And ofcourse the first person his eyes fell upon was his beloved brother Aidan, it had seemed to be ages since he had seen him. Aidan threw his arms around his brother smiling from ear to ear. " Brother! It's been ages, how are you fairing these days? Still ruling the empire with an iron fist? Or are you still the soft man you've always been! ", He said this with a deep good hearted chuckle, and the king replied with the same laugh. " Please brother, walk with me, it seems were needed by the Council. ", as they walked Aidan and his dear brother adored the decorations around them. The walls were adorned with beautiful tapestry from the farthest reaches of the empire, the mages on the staff had even asked him what color he wished his torches to be, and now the halls were a bright blue with color. The flames licking against the walls, it created kind of a play for them as they made they're way to the Council. Smiling from ear to ear as the king passed his staff, he actually stopped and took his time with each person, taking in all the blessings and good mornings from they're smiling faces. He prided himself through his people, if they weren't happy, then he wasn't happy. So he took time out of each day to have personal 1 on 1 time with as many people as he could before retiring at night.
Finally reaching the Council's chambers, they both thanked William as they walked through the doorway, and heard it click shut behind them. Achileas Turned to his current audience as he took his usual seat at the head of the table, and looked down at the dreary faces of his subjects.
" Sire...we have grimm and horrible news from across the kingdom, it seems horrible rumors have been started by the rival empire, it seems they plan an attack. But, we have no idea how or when. We think that they have started these rumors in hope of riots and chaos.. " Roark was a man of great stature, and an elite in the lycan bloodline. He knew his words to be true, and he knew them to be grim as well. At the sound of this news, Aidan bowed his head and a dark look came over to his face, looking to his brother he shook his head in disgust. " This is absolutely unforgiveable, if we find who is responsible for these rumors I will take care of them personally my lord.. ", He then turned his head down to the rings upon his hand, fingering each emblem that was emblazoned across the precious metals.
Looking from his brother back to the council the king made a quick decision, " Then we must reassure our people that there will be no attack, we will find these so called warriors, and cut them off before they even reach our borders, I will share my voice with the towns folk personally to give them these words. And I will promsie them no harm will come to they're homeland.. " He said this with a slight growl, this agitated him deeply, a threat against him was one thing, but a threat against his people and land was far worse than what anyone could even think of. He rose, his regal stature seeming to overshadow even the largest men in the room, Aidan stood closely behind his brother, showing that he agreed with his brother's words.
" Come my subjects, let us get our plan in motion and get our greatest minds to come to our aid, my brother and I shall return to my quarters, there are a few people we need to speak with when it comes to these matters, and I would rather them be private as not to put any harm hanging above your heads. ", then he thanked them one by one before him and Aidan retreated back to his quarters. Summoning William to his side he made a request, " I need you to bring me Vertigo, the three of us need to speak of this matter personally William, so I will have you wait in your quarters or the grounds until I need you once more. ", as he said this he rested his chin upon his hand as he went into deep contemplation. Aidan on the other hand took his place out on the balcony, watching over the town closely, and taking the scent of the land deep within him. Wondering if somewhere the scent of the soon dead men were lingering there.
