*Laurence lying on ground/grave*
Aphmau: I wanted to call you here because I wanted to see exactly what you were doing with your guards right now. I'm not suspicious of you, but I wanted to give you an update on what's going on with me and what I have my guards and soldiers doing. Right now they're all out looking for those that are injured and helping them get back to health. Even if they are O'khasis guards I still believe they deserve a good clean bill of health. However, that doesn't excuse their actions and I'm still planning on holding them trial for what they've done here today. That's my plan. I wanted to see exactly where you stood with your guards.
Lord Of Scaleswind: I have my guards in charge of damage control. We've detained as many O'khasis guards as we could catch. The majority of them ran off with their tails between their legs.
Aphmau: As expected. Speaking of cowards, where is Zane? Have you seen him?
Lord Of Scaleswind: Zane ran off minutes after we broke down the walls. We've yet to have seen him. For his own safety he better not return here, or it'll be my hand that slays him.
Aphmau: If you get to him first then he's all yours, but *sigh* I feel like a horrible person for saying stuff like that but I seriously just can't believe what he....How exactly did he convince to attack Phoenix Drop sir? If you don't mind me asking?
Lord Of Scaleswind: As you know Nicole was thought to be dead. We saw her get stabbed and pushed into a river by an O'khasis guard. Turns out, Nicole actually bought a very expensive illusion potion and faked her own death to get out of her arranged marriage to the elder son of The Lord Of O'khasis. I was utterly devastated and waged war upon O'khasis. As you may have seen, I am not one who likes to ask questions, I simply act on my anger - A fatal trait. In any case, after many moons of fighting Zane approached our gates, Just as I was about to give the command to kill him, he spoke to me words I could not believe....Nicole was ALIVE. She was alive and taken captive by the Lord of Phoenix Drop, in order to incite war between Scaleswind and O'khasis. Not only did the lord of Phoenix Drop take Nicole, but she also took Garroth - to bend both O'khasis and Scaleswind to her will. After hearing this...I flew off my rocker and came here.The rest you already know.
Aphmau: Wow, I can't believe how everything worked in his favor and I can't believe that he just lied to you like that.
Lord Of Scaleswind: It'll be the last time he ever lies to anyone. I will make sure every allied village and beyond knows of his betrayal. O'khasis will be the center of conflict for many ages, Even the faith of Lady Irene will shake at the thought of him being the high priest of her faith. He'll be overthrown of his position. ZANE. WILL. PAY.
Aphmau: Pardon me for saying this, but I feel like that's such a rash action to act on right now. I understand If Zane... And believe me, I want him to pay more than anyone. But you really should sit down and think about this before you bust a vein or before any rash actions come into play that could hurt norther people.
Lord Of Scaleswind: Eh, you're right, I just need to rest for a tad. Know that Nicole is not innocent in this either. Her selfish actions caused this as well. I know she's young, but she's still my daughter. I'd have punched her across the face for her actions too, if of course she wasn't my daughter. But the thought of hurting my little girl is beyond me. I need to calm down...Please give me a moment Lady Aphmau.
Aphmau: Absolutely. You are more than welcome to use my home to rest if you choose. I sincerely appreciate you helping out and for calling for peace. That's something I won't forget, trust me. *chuckle*
Aphmau turns to Nicole.
Nicole: Heh, well who knew a girl like me could help bring peace to the world with just a swift uppercut.
Aphmau: I still can't believe you hit your dad but, where were you Nicole? And exactly who took you away?
Nicole: ...Brian took me and hid myself and Roxy inside of that cell underneath - what he called - the "Old Lord's House". He kept us there until Emmalyn and Kenmur came along. Thank goodness too because I couldn't tell what time of day it was anymore. My sense of night and day had faded and I was beginning to question my sanity.
Aphmau: ...So Brian was the traitor all along?
Nicole: Brain was the spy, Aphmau... he's been here the whole time... it really gives me a different look at things as they stand now... If I am to become the Lord of Scaleswind then I am going to have to trust my people, even if they are plotting to betray me behind my back,that thought is...heart breaking.
Aphmau: Nichole, I've known Brian since he was a baby in this village. You don't even know how I feel about that right now.
Nichole: I hope I never know what you are going through. In any case you should go and check on the people who stayed in your village. I'm going to try to explain to my father my actions in the meantime. I really never meant anything such as war to come of this.
I feel like this is the responsibility of an adult who knows what is best for her people...had I known my marriage to Garroth would have caused war...I would have not hesitated to marry him. It sounds weird saying that now that I know him...
Aphmau: You mean you would have married him...*le sigh* you would have married him if it would have prevented a war, I get it Nicole, just..it's not something we should talk about right now. You just take care of your father and I'm gonna go take care of my people.
Aphmau walks down the step towards the village.
Aphmau: *le sigh* My gosh it's such a stomach turning thought to think of just...Brian...Oh my gosh...Donna?!?
Aphmau walks to Donna who is standing at the edge of the Wheat Field.
Donna: Aphmau! Are you hurt!?
Aphmau: *Chuckely sigh* I don't understand why your here, but....it depends on what kind of hurt you mean I feel utterly betrayed right now Donna.
Donna: ...I heard. The traitor was Brain all along. I-I still can't believe that...how is Dale going to take this!?! How could Brain betray Phoenix Drop like that..? HE WAS BORN AND RAISED HERE!
