A Land at War

by Sheila Parkinson | Score: 7650

"And I so declare, WAR!" The king shouts at his people. His son, a spy undercover as a pharmacist in a distant country, recently reported of that enemy country trying to develop a missile they call the 'RHINO' missile. The president of that country claimed they had no intention to break the peace treaty, yet the prince, Akin, claimed they had many secret files he had gained access to that were war intents. The peace treaty had fallen through, and the troops were ready for battle. Every soldier had been gathered for the war effort, and a shoemaker said he and his family would provide durable boots for the war. Every person in the capital had gathered around the statuette of Hema, the city's infamous 'mascot' goddess. She was the goddess of victory, happiness, and love. In the city of Geneira, these were the virtues that seemed to run the land. As the troops gathered, a man ran into an alleyway. He was a spy for the enemy country, disguised as a clerical assistant, who had come as soon as Prince Akin had been identified. His main job in Geneira was to gain access to the king's firstborn, and next in line to the throne, his daughter Juna. She would become queen when the king retired, or died, and would rule the country and its many people. Imura, the country I have been speaking of, was very powerful and had withstood earthquakes, tornadoes, and many other natural disasters easily.  q q q q                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   t t t t t t t t t
