2 Days Later
Ext.Outskirts of Land A – Morning
(Platoons Searching everywhere but can find any trace of a body)
(One of the platoon finds 5 children altogether in a bad condition, Children also see them and wave towards them calling for help.
Platoon reaches them)
”Hey boys, are you all right? Where are your parents and others? ”
”Don you recognise me? I am Daughter Of King Betelguese, Eris. We all met when you and King Bradford visited us last year. We are all friends and just barely survived the fall. Parents of two of my friends were with us and are nowhere to be founded. ”
”Yeah, i recognise you now as you tell me as I am very happy to find you of all persons firstly,my lady.You are pretty well wounded, take the medics services first. ”
(Calls the medics)
Eris(While Being treated)
”Btw, Is my father safe? A person like you should have been sent to the middle not outskirts. Anyways, He must be the first one who was rescued after the crash. ”
”Sorry, my lady. I was given charge of the outskirts as to minimise the casualties effectively. As of King Betelguese, I can tell you for now if he is rescued by now or not. ”
”He must have been. Btw, what took you 2 days to reach here if you were given the charge to lookout at outskirts. ”
”Well Actually, We all are provided with large areas to cover because major portion of transportation was in evacuation process. The no. Of Rescue Squads launched are pretty less. ”
”Anyways, Its good you reached here at last. Let me have some rest now. ”
”Sure, my lady, but I had some questions to ask after seeing the situation here if you will excuse. Conditions here seem pretty awkward/strange to me. ”
”I told you to let me rest. Besides, there are 4 more who can tell you if they want to the whole incident occurred here. ”
(Gives a small stressed punch and the floor of cart opens up a bit)
”Oops, sorry for that. ”
(Kaiden is surprised after seeing such strength even after she was all worked out)
Jean(in panic to eris)
”I told you not to act reckless. Why don you ever bother to listen. We still don know the full capacity of it. ”
”I know, I know dummy. Just shut up for a bit. I am all tired up, you know. ”
”Let her rest. You know what she is like, don you? Btw, who are those 3 others with you? ”
”Oh..They are our friends. ”
”As am I told, there were 2 group of parents with you not 3.
Where are the parents of last one? ”
”They weren Able to get space in our turn. Besides, Uncle has promised Rehan that he will bring his parents safe with him. ”
”Thats what you expect of him.
Oh sorry, are you treated whole? Are your wounds covered? ”
”Yeah Yeah. Don worry abt that. I am all fine now thanks to you. ”
”Well then, I would like to ask you what all happened here but I guess thats a talk which should happen while we ride back. So should we now head back to the headquarters? ”
”Yeah, but just know that my friends are coming in the same ride as I am. ”
”Yeah for sure. Afterall, I have to gather details from each of you. ”
(All of them gets into the buggy Eris was Resting in along with platoon Commander and reaches headquarters in midnight and rest in their alloted cabins)
Int.Allied Nations Headquarters- Morning
(All 5 of them are greeted by deyja and then represented in front of Allied Leaders. Platoon Commander is Also with them)
”My lords, i am very happy to tell you that some of the platoons have successfully returned and the daughter of our king, Eris was with platoon having King Bradfords Highly Liked Brain. ”
”Commander Kaiden. ”
”Yeah, So we have heard and congratulations to you on retrieval of your successor, tell us the updates regarding your king. ”
”We still don know his situation for sure by now. Platoons headed there haven reached back by now and all other platoons weren able to find any persons too. Only alive founded till now are these 5 for now. ”
”Well, thats heartbreaking. But doesn it means you are new king of land A. ”
”How can you say that? He isn dead by now. You can just decide for king on your own. ”
”Let me speak, my lady. I was going to say the same. Calm down. ”
”Thats a talk of later. I will like to hear from Commander for now. ”
”Your Highness,i was incharged with the western outskirts of the area. Everything I could see there was flat.There was nothing , not an animal , no human significance , nothing.
It was as if the land was newly created freshly. I can even express it. ”
King Bradford(Cutting in Between)
”Just that? Nothing else, Explain Yourself more Clearly. ”
”My lord. When I say nothing it means there wasn even a piece of debris I could see left of asteroid. Everything new means it was like nothing happened there. But still I could find were only these 5 kids.
And .. and ”
King Alfred(Cutting Commander)
”So you are basically suggesting that there was something else behind all that catastrophe. ”
”Thats not what happened there. He didn saw anything.There was this smell of death and pieces of body all over. How couldn he saw them. ”
”You aren allowed to speak for now. But still I want an answer from him on this. ”
”Thats what I was getting on, my lord. These children have also went unique.They have gotten raw powers which are supernatural. As for the conditions there, i will stay on my words. ”
”And what do you wanna say by kids having raw powers? ”
”They have gotten some unique kind of strength in their arms and body which is unlikely even for us.I will like to explain it in best way possible. ”
”Well , the kids say they didn had anything to eat for the time I got to them and all they relied on was the leftover of asteroids. And after eating them, they all have invoked some power and strength which is unlikely to happen. Even when they were all teared up when I got to them, Lady Eris Easily broke the floor of Cart with no force. ”
”Aren you contradicting yourself by saying they ate rock pieces when you said before that you couldn see anything there as there was nothing to be seen. ”
”These are the 2 things which I don know answers of, my lord
The debris and their powers.
Thats all. ”
”Are you kids okay and feeling well? Tell us what happened when asteroid struck there. ”
”Well, ” …..
King Bradford(Irritated by Her)
”Let them speak too, young girl, if you may.
Keep Your Royalty Outside for a Bit. ”
”Honour, my lord. When the asteroid struck, we were all together all along with my and hers(pointing towards B) parents. But after the crash, we weren able to find them. ”
”Well , Actually we were able to find a couple of bodies but we weren sure if they were my parents or not. ”
”Do the greetings first. ”
King Braford(Poking Her)
”No need of formalities for now.
You didn care to do so at the first place too,did you
What about other bodies or livings? ”
”Despite those two , we weren able to find anything else
And as the Commander said, there wasn anything or be seen the day later so he is right on that point. ”
”What about you Two? ”
”As you Know, I live with Eris and Uncle(King Betelguese). I Agree with whatever Both A and Commander are saying. There was only disaster to be seen the moment asteroid crashed but the day after it was like nothing and then the day later when Commander reached, there was nothing as everything was flat and clear. ”
”I live in the cities. Well, nothing else.
I just wanted to know abt my parents. They were there with the king when we evacuated. ”
”Sorry to say, but we aren having any updates from town as you know. Its most likely everybody who was in town has died. ”
”Don get so harsh all along.He has just survived we can say what. ”
Is it finally going to happen now ”.(Smirks)
”What are you laughing for?
Anyways we now have to decide what to do of Land A.
”Its certain that the nation can revive on its own and we are not liable to do so too. Also, as a weak member of pact they loosen our strength as well. My suggestion will be to remove them from the Pact as we have done all we could. ”
”But that would be so cruel, my lord. You just can do that. ”
”Who are you to say so?
You are not currently having a king who you were representing as and also you aren the king either.
This is a matter of rest of 4 Nations so don interfere.
I suggested you to proclaim yourself as the king earlier but you
didn do it. So just be quiet for now until you are said to speak.
You are currently a normal resident only. ”
”Pardon me,But in that case, you too can say anything as you are a member of alliance who can throw us out of it all along as per your desire.
To Decide the King and all is an internal matter of Land A. ”
You are getting the wrong Idea, My boy. Everything here will be decided by vote. All we are throwing is our opinions. You can throw one cause you are not of our level. Decisions will be taken by us 4. So shut up for now.
You can decide the king for yourself but decision of whether keeping you or not in the pact stays with us. ”
”Even so,The proposal of king Alfred is very sounding and I agree too.
But I have an another proposal, do any of us wants to have are of land A under their kingdom so pact and our area holdings remains strong at same time?
I don think Land A can fight for now to show their disagreement. ”
”Well , it can happen but it would take a large amount of investment and we have to maintain refugees too
What about splitting it between all 4 of us? ”
”It can happen too if all of us want so. ”
”Sorry, but well , i think the most important matter to discuss is on the kids.
Didn all of you heard that they possess powers unlikely to anybody else and that too after eating rock leftovers. We should solve that mystery too as its first case in its own.
Besides,Bradford, aren you the one who believes in imagining what isn in front of naked eye? Can you imagine what these kids could become? ”
”So, what are you proposing then. ”
”I just wanna know if these are assets or liabilities to us. ”
”Thats a talk of later. Besides, its not our problem to deal with at the 1st place. ”
”Hey Bradford, Can you remind me what was the sole purpose of forming an alliance? ”
”Purpose? To strengthen our influence and get rid of non-logical politics. ”
”So do I need to tell or ask you anything else now? Where is your practical mind. ”
(Bradford realises he was acting out of his mind, in a way he doesn reacts normally)
”Well, I would like to resume the meeting tomorrow. I don think I am in my mind today.
Thanks for that,Helios. ”
”You got me. ”
”As per kids being assets or liabilities, i think they are contingent for now. They will become what they think as they are in a age of being vulnerable to corruption. Anyways, I would also like to think well on it and resume tomorrow. ”
”Should we Call off for today then? ”
”Yeah, do whatever you want. ”
(Deyja is relieved on getting some time as Eris is tensed about her father)
Ext.Allied Nations Headquarters – Night
(Scene : Both of them are discussing well and King Bradford is also thinking about this whole matter in the shadows of 2 moons with King Alfred and Kaiden.)
King Bradford (Confident)
”Well, I think I finally know what to do
Thanks for that, I knew I could rely on you two. ”
