She learned more than one lesson from the memory. First was; Estes was really slow and fragile, the gentlest among all elves. The second lesson was that a snowball was the best way to describe how victory would go. It started with a first tower, and each succeeding one gave them more weapons, freed more prisoners and strengthened their hope. It was fast and unstoppable - until it hit a wall.

"There," Miya lead Zilong and Rafaela to water tunnels. "Lolita and the others will be a distraction at the gates, but we enter here."

"What if this is a trap?" Zilong looked around, apprehensive. "Karina mentioned that she has an employer, right? What if this leads us to him?"

"Karina gains nothing by betraying us. I am just an ordinary archer. Nobody would make an elaborate plan to murder me."

With Rafaela's light they descended into the dungeons. Miya was sure that Zilong was a spearman, but she was beginning to wonder if he had an invisible hammer all along. However, he was not like Lolita who hit as loud as she snored. Lolita crushed rocks so loudly that birds fly out to the sky in fear. In contrast, Zilong knew how to destroy iron bars in silence, find loose bricks and carefully pull them out like books in a shelf. His skills were particularly useful in sneaking in - at this rate he could probably tear the foundations of the castle and bring it down while their enemies were asleep.

Their light source flickered and faded. "Silencing runes," Rafaela whispered. Miya looked around to see the rocks glowing in the dark, covered in languages she cannot read. "I cannot use any magic here."

"It could only mean one thing," Miya replied. Her heart was pounding. "Who else do they need this prison for?" Miya adjusted her eyes to the dark. The torches were too few, but enough for the shapes around to have a warm glow.

"Is anyone there?" A voice called behind the walls.

No mistaking it. Miya tapped Zilong's shoulder. "Tear this wall down! Hurry!" With a few hits, a wall crumbled revealing an empty room full of magical symbols. The impact echoed through the chamber; after a brief silence the chains rattled. A lone figure in the middle, bathed in the moonlight from an opening above.

"Miya?" He called her.

There was no words as she listened to his voice. So long yet it was the sound in her mind she desperately needed to hear. Miya legs moved forward, faster than her own breath. She fell into his arms, so warm and gentle, as she clung to him tightly like it would be their last embrace. It felt like an eternity. "Estes."

His arms wrapped around her tighter, "I thought I was dreaming… seems like they're real this time, Miya." He brushed the hair from her face and cupped her cheek. She shuddered as he gazed into her eyes and wiped a tear with his thumb. Miya closed her eyes as Estes kissed her forehead.

They were so close again. Miya felt how dry his hands were, nails cracked and how much he lost weight since they were last together. How much suffering did Estes endure here? And why was he taken at the first place? So much to ask but she just wanted this moment to last a little longer.
"Oh, so this is why-" Rafaela said loudly before she squeaked. She quickly covered her mouth as Zilong looked at her with disapproval- like how adult looked when scolding a child. "I'm so sorry." she added quickly.

Miya shook her head and gave Rafaela a reassuring smile. "Don't worry too much." She bowed to her and Zilong, "you have my thanks." Now, to introduce her new friends to Estes…

It was frustrating but nothing could be done, Zilong thought. His run with Rafaela earlier was enjoyable, but now they needed to be careful as Estes limped with them. The king couldn't move very fast at his weakened state and Miya had to support whenever he stumbled. Rafaela used her healing magic on Estes, but he needed more time to gain his full power.

Still, the king's magic was incredible. Estes raised his arms and slowed down the guards, his magic like water, splashing all over its targets, beautiful but deadly.

"We should join Lolita in the gates," Miya suggested.

"No, we have to get the others," Estes said. The king led them further into the dungeons. With the inner fortress emptied because of Lolita's assault front assault, there was little resistance as they broke into the other parts of the stronghold. Zilong broke down a sealed door to reach their destination; the castle forge.

Their entrance caught the attention of the workers - no, the enslaved elves. Estes moved forward and his voice boomed. "Rise up! This is the night of our freedom!" He rallied the elves from the forge out to the hall. Most were weaponless, wearing nothing but rags, but still they followed their king. Zilong felt a shiver on his skin. Such was the display of loyalty.

Dozens, no, hundreds of demons stormed down the hall to greet them. Still, the elves stood their ground. The other doors broke down revealing Lolita and the others. The hammer wielder moved close to Estes and protected him from magic blasts. Lolita glowed as she absorbed all the power, redirecting it back to their enemies. "Eat this!"

Zilong fought his way to the demon horde. He must take down as many as possible; the other elves wore no armor and used almost nothing. Rafaela's spells cannot heal so many at the same time. However, a bright light engulfed everyone and in the center, Zilong could see Estes glowing like the moon. The elves who were wounded and fallen rose up, their wounds healed and their strength restored. This was the king's power?

Victory was close, Zilong enjoyed battle after so long; to save the people and to aid the king was his duty and joy. The light of Estes' magic had faded - no, this was something else. Zilong lost sight of everything, from the nearby fighters and even the stone floors. No torches, no mosaic glass, no sparkling blades. Everything was clouded in gray mist.

A loud, chilling scream, a woman, pierced through his ears. He wasn't sure if it was Miya, Rafaela, Lolita or any other elf. Zilong's heart quickened and he concentrated his senses to follow the distressing sound, knocking the invisible bodies on his way.

There was a sudden change, a different noise, like a beast running and growling. Zilong quickly turned around, and he cursed as sharp claws nearly made contact with his face. He knocked the assassin away with his spear, but it wasn't enough. Then he saw it - the assassin crawled on the floor like a spider and wore a look of a cat on its face. As swiftly as it appeared, it faded back into the shadows.

Zilong ran, following the unique sounds of the creature, climbing up a stairwell. The fog-like invisibility slowly faded and Zilong realized he was all alone. The assassin was gone. Dammit. He shouldn't have left the others.

"I'm impressed you managed to follow Helcurt," a man's voice answered. Zilong thought his eyes were deceiving him as the person emerged from the shadows. Was it really a man? The stranger had gray skin and a large open wound on his body. He looked like a corpse.

"Who are you?" Zilong asked as he assumed his fighting position.

"It would be rude not to answer. You may call me Moskov." The man stared at Zilong with empty eyes and summoned his own spear.
