(Part 17) The Shadow Of The Ice Kingdom

Part 17: Heaven's Guardians        Wallace visits the different sections of Sarlia's realm, she explains, "This is where the souls go to be judged. The good souls and chosen warriors by Valcia rest. The chosen warriors get to keep their bodies and are escorted to the champion's hall. That is where you will go after you die." Wallace and Sarlia enter the stadium from their last sparring session. They enter the middle of the stadium battlegrounds, "Wallace, you will have to challenge three guardians. The gargoyles, the gryphon, and the mightiest guardian of heaven, the chimera. The gargoyles are strong through numbers but weak by themselves. The gryphon flies through the skies and maintains the policing of the different sections. The chimera protects the warriors entrance, it challenges any warrior before they can enter. The chimera never fights to its full potential, but if it deems the warrior to be strong enough, it will accept them into the warriors' Co

A  pegasus ignited the sky with bright variations of blue flames, bends its neck and points its unicorn horn at a castle below, "Blazer! Blast a massive fireball at the roof of that section of the castle." Blazer launches fireballs from his horn, collapsing the roof over the throne room. "Land on the roof and summon a blizzard around the castle." Sam jumps off of Blazer, his legs bent as he  crashes into the ground. Sam stood up, staring Wallace in the eyes. Wallace is sitting on his throne, his elbow resting on the armrest, his hand bent with his chin resting in the palm of his hand. Sam pulls out his sword, in a full sprint he charges forward, his sword in high-ready as he drops the sword from a forty-five degree angle as his left leg half-moon steps with his foot stopping in the middle of Wallace's stone throne. Sam turns around, "You can move faster than my melee attacks! I am here to settle what was first started by you and your men! Today, you are going to die." Sam runs towards Wallace, his sword swinging at Wallace, as Wallace dodges each swing Sam announces, "I will clear my families' name, one way or another! But, if it takes taking your head and starting a war with your allied kingdoms, then so be it. I don't give two shits about diplomacy, or reasoning anymore. I just want to gut you open like a wild boar for killing my wife!" Wallace grabs Sam's sword, bends it into the shape of a horseshoe, "I don't know what you are going on about. From the looks of the sky, I noticed that you have a blizzard rotating around the entire castle. I am guessing you want this to be a one on one battle. Don't worry, I won't let any of my soldiers interfere. On another note, I don't believe that you have acquired a sword granted to you by your god!" Wallace raises his hand in the air, a sword teleports into his hand as he grips it bringing the sword down to his side, his arm vertically straight, the tip of the sword almost touching the ground.  He walks up to Sam as he raises the sword to a defensive stance. "Like this sword."        

        Sam creates a wind explosion, forcing Wallace to be thrown at mach 2 into the far end of the throne room wall, thirty feet from where he first stood. Sam uses this opportunity to take a defensive stance, his mana manifests into a sword, and a shield made from fire and wind. Wallace's shield teleports to his other hand as he creates an after image, bursting into a full sprint as Sam sprints towards his direction. With god-like speed, traveling faster than three times the speed of sound both warriors charge towards one another crashing into one another with tremendous force. The battle continues to rage on as wings expand from Wallace Parshath's back. The force of the clashes destroyed the floor and the throne room walls. Wallace speaks up, "This battle is mine. Antinium  heals me from my wounds and grants me superior physical enhancements. Look at this, so much antimum I have been granted wings. I fought the strongest creature in the universe to a stalemate. I am stronger than Sarlia and now! A lot has changed since the time you left on your assassination journey, so you can become a king of a nation. I united all the kingdoms in the North. The ice kingdoms all are ruled under a parliamentary system." Sam smiles, "If that is why you killed her! For your twisted sense of absolute justice, with no benefit of the doubt, no innocence until proven guilty. You didn't even bother to hear my side of the story. I am going to beat the living hell out of that crooked face you have, I won't stop till I am satisfied by your slow death."

         The two warriors burst through the ceiling, rising far into the sky, clashing, fleeing and conducting tactical maneuvers, zig zagging, clashing into each other faster than the speed of sound. A bright glowing sphere twenty feet in diameter, swirls around Wallace as a forcefield. Sam responds with his twenty feet in diameter spherical firestorm, acting as a forcefield as they clash into one another, sparks of electricity fly in different directions as they clash thirty miles above the kingdom. The onlookers watch in amazement as two bright spheres explode and create shockwaves in all directions. Buildings crumbling from the constant bombardments of shockwaves. The citizens evacuate from the surrounding area where the shockwaves cause the most damage. Hours passed by as the two balls of light, one reddish orange, the other one a bright sphere of golden streaks of light swirling around the image of Wallace, with his angelic like wings fluttering in the sky as they clashed into one another, sending sparks of electricity scattering in all directions. Walls of building structures collapse and civilians are thrown from the area as the shockwaves continue to destroy the surrounding. Time continues to tick away as each of them begins to tire out, "Wallace, you are finally nearing your limit. All that smack talk and all you can muster is this." Wallace, panting and frustrated yells, "No, I can beat you. You are an evil person, I am blessed by the god of the gods! I am the chosen one." They continue to attack one another, their swords clashing as their forcefield weakens from every sword impact and shield ramming. 

       Twenty-eight days passed by. Sam's and Wallace's elemental force field fades as they continue swinging their swords at each other with precision and intent to maim or kill. Sam stabs his sword through Wallace's armor and through his body, blood flows down Wallace's back. Sam pulled the sword out from inside of Wallace, "See, you are not healing anymore." Sam takes three steps back while saying, "I worn you down to just your mortal abilities. Now I will kill you for everything you have done to my family and I! For the death of my wife and the torment that my family had to go through." Wallace removes his hand from the bleeding wound, "Yeah, you actually wounded me, and I am low on antimum. I tho, have a way to regain antimum." Wallace lifts up his hand, his palm facing towards Sam as an inch in diameter beam of bright white light pierces through Sam's shoulder. Both of them fly down to the throne room floor. Wallace sits down on a fallen statue of a warrior and breathes deeply, then releases it slowly. A massive glow appears around Wallace as Sarlia grants her entire antimum sacrificing herself in the process. He regains composure, grabs Sam by the collar and says, "Sarlia told me that your wife was murdered by possibly Brett or Chasano, and Arkana is being disciplined for his actions in the mana dimension." The ground beneath the feet of Sam begins to melt into magma as it rises up Sam spits lava fireballs in Wallace's face. Wallace drops to the ground with the lava hardening around his face giving Sam enough time to regroup his thoughts. He manifests an ice bow with a satchel carrying ice arrows on his back. Sam loads an arrow on the bow, he fires several arrows, which begin to turn anything they hit trapped in ice. Sam generates a sandstorm inside of a firestorm creating a spherical magma  forcefield, launching pieces of the magma forcefield towards Wallace. Wallace dodges the ice arrows and the magma being thrown at him as he glows a bright light blue, an aura stretching past his arms  stretched out wide. Wallace begins to scream at the top of his lungs, "That's enough!" while he expands the heavenly light force field to fifteen feet in diameter, clashing with Sam's fifteen feet magma forcefield. Wallace and Sam continue to scream as they exert greater powers expanding their clashing forcefield to twenty feet, then to twenty-six feet before Sam's force field collapses and he is launched into the forest, twenty miles away. Wallace appears next to Sam's broken, bruised and exhausted body. "Well Wallace, do it! Kill me, just like how you had my wife assassinated by your own soldiers. You took my wife away from me due to a lie. Placing a bounty on my entire family. We had nothing to do with the death of the kings. Nor the prince and princess. We are innocent, my wife was innocent. You didn't have to kill my love, my beautiful wife Eliessia." Wallace replies, "I don't know anything about your wife's death. I have a hunch as to what might be the cause of the chaos. It's Malthus." Sam disbelieves him but asks reluctantly "If you didn't do it, why did Valcia revoked the blessing of eternal life on my family? Surely, it must be so you can get the vengeance you so heartily have been seeking. Just so you know, one last time, me and my family had nothing to do with any of the assassinations that you and your soldiers placed on us." Wallace Parshath replies, "I guess you have to be correct. All of this is due to my personal bias and sense for justice. I was too focused on getting the culprit, but I didn't think that it all could have been a massive set up. It has to be Malthus who organized the assassinations and Brett who may be the one at fault or knows who the real assassin is. Your soldiers are almost to my lands. We should join forces." Sam replies, "Yes, I can agree with you that it could all have been a set-up, but I am in no condition to lead my men, nor am I able to fight. You won, Wallace, I will have you lead my soldiers and you can invade Nalloia. I will leave Brett to you. I need time to recover from our fight and the loss of my wife." Wallace heals Sam's wounds. The two warriors confront Sam's generals, "Wallace is not responsible. Brett Travosita organized a psychological war through trying to get Wallace and I to kill one another. The plan first was most likely to get us executed by association. Then it evolved into setting up kingdoms against us. So, Brett's strategy is to take advantage of the conflict and ambush the battlefield. Our strategy is to make it seem like Wallace's kingdom is only invading, but our forces will be joining Wallace's. Brett will not be able to defeat both armies." The meeting disbanded. Wallace commands the generals to begin the march toward Nalloia.
