A darkness. An absolute darkness accompanied with deathly silence. Just somewhere from a distance is heard a baby crying. It is a morning, a sad morning, when the sun did not fire even one life-giving light onto the planet. Kaloona immediately knew, why the darkness clouded her planet. She went in tears to the balcony, looked up to the sky and quietly cried: “Mum, can you hear me? I failed. I could not protect the Balathron-the light of life. I am not worthy the position I inherited after you. Our planet is in huge danger and I do not know what I should do. Mum, please forgive me.”
Kaloona felt hopelessness, but she knew, she must do something very quickly to save her planet and her nation. Suddenly was born a perfect plan in her mind.
“General Tarkhan, can you come to my room, please?” she said with determination in her voice into the talkbot, a communication device.
In a few minutes General knocked on her door. “Yes, her Majesty. I and all my soldiers are ready and waiting for your permission to find and eliminate enemies who stole the Balathron and bring it back to Sorascant.”
Kaloona strictly looked at him and said: “No, General, it is my mission to protect people of Sorascant and not to send them to certain death. I will not allow women lost their husbands and children their fathers. I will go and find them. Do not try to stop me, I have already decided. As the Guardian of the Balathron is my duty to protect the light and whereas it was stolen, it is my duty to return it where it belongs. All I need from you is to find the Great wizard Romerithan and bring him to me as soon as possible. And also target a spacecraft of Admiral Ballisian and inform me about his every move. Thank you. Now you can go.”
... middle of paper ...
He started to shake with her body like he wanted to wake her up and loudly cry:”Kaloona, my only love. Do not leave me here. Please. I love you so much from the first time I saw you in the education centre and never loved anybody else. And never will. Please, do not leave me!”
She heard him and wanted to reply she loved him too but she was not strong enough.
She knew she had to tell him a true so she collected her all last strenght and she opened her eyes for the last time and with faint voice whispered:”Romerithan, please protect the Balathron and people of Sorascant, you are the only one who can! Please forgive me, I am sacrificing one life to save millions of lives of my people. And for the same reason, the protection of people of Sorascant, I sacrificed my love to you. I love you and always will.” And she slowly closed eyes and breathed her last.
