It was a sunny day. The knight Faker and his partners were discussing a way to fight against the devil, Liliane.
“What can we do? The devil Liliane would arrive at this world, but there is no doubt that we can’t defeat her.” said Kitty.
“I know, but even if we can’t, we must do it. We must save the world we live in, our home.”said earnestly Faker.
“As for us, it seems to throw straws against the wind.”
“Maybe, we need to ask the great enchanter, Karsus, for help. I am sure he knows something.” said Faker.
Then they went to Karsus’s castle by the volitant car.
Liliane was the master of the devildom. Someday she announced she would arrive and bring this world a new lease of life by projecting her image to the sky. Yes, she wanted to rule this world.
Karsus seemed to know they would come.
Karsus said, “I have seen the scene when Liliane comes from crystal ball. Human have little protection against the devil army. Liliane destroys the world”
Everyone looked disappointed.
“Can’t we have the way?” said Faker.
“Of course, we can’t defeat Liliane face to face. The only way to prevent Liliane is to destroy the tube connected the devildom with this world. At the middle of September, there will be a rare scene that seven stars will be arrayed like a round. The power of the border was weaken by the biggest war broken out at ancient time. With the gravitation of other stars, it will lose its effect. At this time, it is the best but the only time for Liliane to open the tube. Similarly, this is a good chance to decrease the risk from the devildom. If we can seal the border, the devil would have no chance to reach to our world at all.” Karsus told them Liliane’s wild ambition.
“But how can we recover the power of the border?” Faker pointed the vital thing.
Then Karsus told them the origin of the border. In ancient, the devils could return two worlds at will. Human was governed by devil. Until one day a knight appeared, he defeated the leader with his solders and chased the devils to their own world then the enchanters used a big magic and set a magic circle to keep the devils out. The kernel of the magic circle is sword the knight used to win this war. But it was missing at that civil war, causing the power decreased.
Now what they needed to do is to find the lost sword and brought it back to the place it belonged to. But how can they find the lost sword? They have no ideal. Luckily, Karsus told them to find the descendants of the hero. The sword would be attracted by the people with the smell of the hero. Faker reminded his father told him the origin of his family. Yes, the Fakers were the hero’s descendants. Time going by, this family waned. But he had no ideal about the sword.
So, he came home and asked his father for help. Certainly, his father didn’t know, either. He went to family’s sanctum to find something but no harvest. Nay, even if they had the sword, they didn’t know where the magic circle was.
The countdown was decreasing. They still had no ideal.
Until one day, the anomaly appeared.
The dark clouds were full of the sky. It was thundering and windy strongly. Gradually, a big hole appeared in the sky. The dark hole seemed very deep and was full of attraction. Liliane would come, everyone thought, this world would end. The negative atmosphere came up at partners’ face.
“We can’t give up. Our ancestors could defeat them. Why can’t we?” Faker howled.
Finally, liliane came with her army. Faker took up his weapon—a sword and rushed to the army, screaming charge. Most people thought he was crazy. But still, there were several people standing up and revolting. They all knew that if they were compromised they would lose their homeland and be charged by the devils.
Without doubt, they failed. Can’t they defeat liliane, the leader of the devils? The answer was no. they were all killed. However, the miracle happened. Faker’s weapon shined like a sun and floated in the air. Then a big magic circle appeared and produced big suction. All the devils including liliane were sucked into the hole. The hole disappeared and the sky faded.
What happened? Only karsus knew it. Faker’s courage and brave action had resonance with the magic circle. The sword was just a symbol. What it need is a person with courage and the spirit of sacrifice. Faker and his partners died but they saved the world
