55 Days Until Life And the Uncertain End (part 3)

Evester had never been one for dramatics in his relationships. However, he was one for dramatic acts. Being dramatic for the sake of being dramatic always struck him as excessive. Being dramatic because it added entertainment? If it could make the people sit on the edge of their seats, then he was willing to do it. Relationship and friendship drama? That did not work with EverDanger. Dangerous acts?

Evester stood atop the highest point outside the entrance to the city. Unlike the last city they defended, the terrain for this city was majority a forest. Evester had never cared about the environment, but the idea of destroying a set of trees like this did make his heart ache a bit.

Heia sat in the circle with the other X circles. Kim was off with the Mages, trying to get them to give her all the codes so she could activate and give orders to their comrades. Heia suspected there were other reasons for it, but she did not press. The Circles were off showing Robee, Trace, and Kori some of the cool acts and lessons that they’d had from the Circles. Heia alone sat with the X’s.

“You look miserable.” A soldier named Nicki said.

“I am.” Heia laughed, rubbing at her eyes. “I’m exhausted.”

Zeydar was flustered. His heart raced uncontrollably, as he taught his class. Where it was day, it was certainly night for Evester, who was preparing or working on an Aralax fight. One battle, that Zeydar could not watch. He had little doubt in Maverin’s predictions, but far greater irritation in the man’s lack of decorum, announcing to the family that an attack would happen for Evester that night. Zeydar had been about to leave when the man told them all the truth, as if he had meant to hide it until the last moment from the beginning.

Once more Zeydar stumbled over his words, coming to a stop abruptly in his lecture, glaring at his presentation, and then turning back to the students of his class in the hall. The number had grown exponentially in the last few days, more than doubling in size from the first day. Everyone knew that he had been interrogated by the Superior Council after he had fought for the Tower. There was not a student on the campus who had not seen his actions in the videos. The videos themselves, had been censored and banned on campus, keeping Star campus from knowing that Zeydar had done anything until the rumors began to spread and students smuggled in downloaded copies from the outside.

Evester sat with his back against the wall, and his shoulders pressed flat. He once more glanced over the information on his tablet as he listened to Karla give instructions to the soldiers. He flipped between Heia’s fighting footage and Zedyar’s footage, going back and forth between the two of them. He skimmed over the fights, looking in specific at their reactions and how healthy they looked.

There was not much time before Uly would give them the update on the communication plans for the next big battle, but Evester wanted to see them both before he heard them. He wanted to see that they were okay himself. Seeing them fight in new ways was giving him hope that maybe their plans were not for naught.

“Are you Evester?” A small voice asked.

It turned out that practical experience was better for people. Just as Evester suspected, from his won experience, most of those who had joined him forty-eight hours prior, were better skilled than they had been before. With each Aralax that they killed, the better they got at killing more Aralax.

Evester collapsed on the bed. It was early in the night or early in the morning. He was not sure what time and he did not want to look at his watch. They were at the right city, to assist for the next major battle he had to face. In a few hours he’d have to get up, assist with last minute preparations and fight training, before he went off to get pretty and hooked up for the cameras. The idea of having to shave, and do his hair made him want to groan. His image was important but was it that important? He knew that there would be no way to erase the dark circles under his eyes, so perhaps he could get away with not being as done up, and a bit of stubble?

He hoped that the others were not having nearly the same amount of sleepless nights. He also hoped that they were. He wanted to see them as tired as he was. As he closed his eyes, he could picture Zeydar’s face. Perhaps it was the spite that had grown in the time that he had been forced to work on his own that made him wish ill on them. He was not sure. Not anymore. He was tired.

Heia looked over the time tables and her new schedule for training, as Kim sat across from her, looking over personal notes that Kim had taken. There was a lot to do and not much time. If they implemented the full training, there would be little more movement that could be done. Heia looked back at the timeline and then to her notes. If only they had started earlier. If only the world had believed Maverin. If only… There were too many if only’s and the present moment did not care for any of them. The way the world was, was what they had to work with.

She’d make sure they made it to the end.

“When we leave are those going to Europa?” Heia asked peeking at Kim’s notes.

“Yes, their detailed notes on all the X leaders.” Kim said holding up the notes with a quick wink and a smile.

“Were you stalking them?”

“Reading them in a way, yes.” Kim laughed.

Zeydar stood with his hood up, walking towards the meeting that was being held in his honor. Kony jogged after him, with May. Neither of them would be allowed in, but they’d walk him as far as they could. Kony continued to recite lectures and concepts to Zeydar, in preparation for his tests later. When they stood at the door, he stopped speaking.

“Doesn’t seem real.” Kony looked over the intricate detailing on the door. He then stared at Zeydar. “You’ll be okay? Don’t drink strange things.”

“We’ve been waiting for this for a day. We knew it was coming.” May sighed. “We’ll be out here.”

The EverDanger video was live. The camera feed recordings were public. Everyone knew. It did not take the investigators going out to see the scorch marks, to confirm. Everyone knew he had done it, and because he had done it, they were safe. There had been no attacks since Zeydar tested his abilities in full. The Igilistals, Kony, May, and Zeydar had been waiting on bated breath to get the call from the Superiors.

57 Days Until Longing And the Uncertain End

Evester looked at Ms. Jymes one last time before she nodded. Her city had been thoroughly evacuated as had the entire area around them. It was a desolate land, without a single human life. Other places had been evacuated under the urging of Evester’s message and Ms. Jymes reaching out to them over the radio. As people moved from smaller residences to larger ones for evacuation, Evester’s team was switching over to assisting them. He looked at his maps to see where the smaller Aralax attacks would happen.

“We have a few more large battles.” Karla asked looking at the map. “Then we meet up?”

Evester nodded. The date had officially been decided. In one week, Evester would see his family again. In one week he would see Heia again. In one week he’d see Zeydar again and when he saw Zeydar, Evester knew he’d begin courting. He was not sure that Zeydar had finished the Golden book. If he had, it would make things all the more easy. Evester wanted to see Zeydar and to touch him and to…

Heia sat with Alan Penn, Kim, and many people on computer screens including Uly, Maverin, Europa, and Estashia. Uly looked a bit worse for wear. His stern face had lost weight, and overall he looked as if he were not sleeping at all. He looked the way that she felt, after having gotten little to no sleep from the battle the night before.

“As it is right now.” Maverin looked over his notes. “We probably have no more than twenty days to whip the whole world into action.”

“Will we be able to implement the changes in that time?” One of the world leaders asked Alan.

“The whole of all the armies have been taught and trained in the techniques that Evester gave us.” Alan Penn admitted. “Implementing the changes and formations that Heia and her teams created will take time.”

Zeydar had just enough energy to say good night, as he walked past the bustling dining room. He wanted nothing more than to get into his bed and call it a night. He’d missed two days of work, and the Superiors were undoubtedly looking for him. He knew that he had to tell Maverin his discoveries, but his mind was spinning too much for him to focus.

“How is your cold?” Europa asked him before he could get too far.

Cold? He turned back to her, eyeing her confused. His body ached. His head was pounding. He probably did look like he had a cold, but he knew that the house had full knowledge of his schemes. “Terrible.”

The cold must be what the told the Stars that came looking, which meant that he could not simply fall asleep. He was going to have to talk, and hated the fact of it more with each passing moment. Walking on to his room, Zeydar did not hesitate to get clean. Upon changing, he made his way to Estashisa’s study to report, finding Kony and May sitting along with Marjorie.
