Ester looked over the land below and sighed. This was how she had wanted it. People
chained together laboured to build her kingdom. Any conspiracy was soon crushed by
mages under her control. Ester had known it would be easy when she defeated Tammy,
this dimension's only hope. "Yarkul!" Ester shouted, "Don't go easy on that one just
because he's a kid! He'll need to work someday! If you don't make him pick up the
pace, you will share the same fate as Tammy!"
"Yes ma'am! I'll get him working!"
The threat of Ester's minions was enough to get anyone working. The one called Yarkul
raised a whip above his head and brought it down hard on a boy, no older than 10. The
young boy's scream was like a gorgeous song to Ester. Some people said she had no
feelings, but those people were long gone now. Ester surveyed the work once more.
A castle was starting to take shape. It was made out of harsh steel, enchanted to
withstand magic. There were cages hung outside, where those who dared oppose Ester
would be placed for the crows to devour. Ester knew there was a chamber deep below
the ground where her minions would live. The village surrounding was deserted, all
it's occupants working on the castle. Anyone that couldn't work was fed to minions.
That was the best moment in Esters life, screams of parents and children as babies,
the old, and the sick were devoured by demons. Ester lived of sadness and fear.
This was her kingdom. "Come forth, my king," Ester said, "Let my servants see you."
The workers gasped as someone emerged from the shadows. It was Paul. Ester had given
hime cybornetic implants and wiped his mind.
"We have a beautiful kingdom. We shall reign for all enternity." Paul proclaimed in a
loud, robotic voice. Hope was lost for all, the rulers could never die.
Ester's new kingdom was forever.
I hope you liked my story! I will post all the sections together, unchanged.
