Zafira watched the sun rise from the horizon. It was early and once again she was wide awake. With the war officially started she had mo time to herself. How could she? Zafira wandered into her office. Sult had insisted she should go home. Finally she did.
When Zafira arrived home she was embraced by Javier
"Zaf good thing you came home."
"I had to stay things were getting rough Javier. With Mevolent's forces pressing our borders." Zafira sighed. She had only just heard from Ghastly Bespoke that Ravel was captured. Zafira had told him if she could spare anyone she'd help but she had enough on her plate. Javier kissed her cheek bringing Zafira back to reality,
"Zafira why dont we just sit together? You need a few moments of normality."
"Yes normal." She muttered and sat down in the living room. Javier sat beside her and she fell asleep in his arms.
Javier smiled. His fiancé was so beautiful in her sleep. Javier heard his phone ring and he answered it
"Javier." He answered.
"It is time." Came the reply on the other end. " You said if we caught someone from a Cradle of Magic. Mevolent wants you to kill off Zafira Kerias of America." Javier felt the blood drain from his face
"No way I'm..."
"Do it! It is an order from Mevolent himself Javier."
"Yes, Serpine." Javier hung up. How was he supposed to get out of this?
