The sun was warm and comforting, dancing among the rustling leaves. He watched as children played in the small town square under the watchful gaze of their parents. Despite the chaotic games, there was a serenity to it all, a pleasant quietness. Today was an important day for them, more than they knew. He rubbed the stump where his left arm had been, evoking old memories. A high price for his part in the crusade. But it had been worth it for scenes like that in front of him.
He noticed a figure approaching through the crowd, people stepping aside out of respect before the lady dressed in the garmaments of the Enlightened. She approached him with a solemn smile, touching her chin in respectful greeting.
"Are you ready to begin?" she asked, sitting down beside him.
"There is hardly a moment when I would not be ready to tell this story" he answered with a smile. "No matter the audience."
She clapped her hands, and the games in the small square came to a halt. The parents in the crowd gathered their children and brought them before the two elders on the bench. Soon enough, the children were seated in quiet anticipation, and he cleared his throat.
"Hello, children. My name is Emiro, and many years ago I fought with the Golden Crusade. Now, how many of you have heard the name of Godslayer Rakkath..?"
