Inspecting the Island
The village was fervent, citizen talking to each other in the streets, guards running to the palace, even the king was anxious, but worried at the same time.
Some of the sentinels had spotted a body on the shore, only two days before, and now the whole city couldn’t stop talking about it. Last time someone set foot on their island was hundreds of years before, by now only as part of the Ancients’ stories.
The king didn’t know what to expect, thus that same day the whole army had been gathered at the palace.
They were all there, waiting.
