“Leave old man, I’m busy with more important matters than your petty revenge”
The words the wight king said to the paladin before walking away lit a great fire inside the older man as happy memories of his fellow men and woman appeared in his mind which was quickly replaced with their corpses and funerals.
“Damn demon turning his back on me!” The hulking paladins roared inside his head with hatred glowing in his eyes that matches the silver glow of his battle axe.
As the veteran paladin grips his weapon so tight that the shaft starts to crack he swings down with all his might tossing the weapon with a similar boom of thunder,
The divine axe spins so fast that in a matter of seconds it becomes a blur which tears through the air while blitzing towards the towering wight king who has stopped to stare up at the full moon.
But to the surprise of the paladin the divine axe stop inches away from the wight king’s back.
“My lord decided to gracefully spare your life and in return you decide to attack him from behind” A cold voice speaks with barely contained rage. “I’ll break your mind and body until you beg for death”
The paladin narrowed his eyes as he saw a pitch black hand sticking out of the wight king’s shadow and clutching his weapon before slowly rising into the form of a cloaked man with pale skin, long black hair and deep yellow eyes.
The cloaked man launched the axe back with an even louder boom which the paladin barely managed to catch and even then sent him skidding backwards slightly.
“Alexander,I thought I told everyone to stay at the castle” The wight king speaks with a clam voice as the cloaked man bent down in front of the wright king as he floated above the ground.
“Forgive me my lord, I sensed that man’s presence and knew that he would be a bother to you on your most important journey and came to stop him from interrupting you” Alexander spoke calmly which turns into annoyance “I hate to admit it took me longer than I liked to deal with three paladins he was leading”
“Please let me rectify my mistake for allowing him to reach you!” He begged while his cloak and hair started to leak smog due to nervousness.
“Three paladins” The veteran paladin muttered as he quickly remembered the three trainee paladins that are worthy of his training before seeing purple eyes, golden pigtails and a blood drenched arm with a lion tattoo stick out from under the shadowy cloak before sinking into his depths “I’ll kill you all!!!”
The wight king glanced at the paladin now surrounded in a silver aura that cracked the surrounding ground and tore the bark off trees if not snapping them in half before staring down at Alexander.
“You have twenty minutes, don’t take too long I want to reach the tower in a day” The wight king spoke as he started to walk away.
“It will be done it ten” Alexander said with a happy tone before twisting around to face the enraged enemy with a glare as he quickly absorbed the surrounding shadows to grow taller and form sharp tendrils from under his cloak “You’ll pay dearly for making me look like an incompetent fool in front of my lord”
The veteran paladin simply yelled in utter fury as he blitzed towards the monster in front of him wanting nothing more than rip and tear into it.
