Battle of the Aeryes:
Aeryes was now in human form.The battles of ancient times forgotten long ago.Now he led a normal human life.A cold, dark night, the sound of the wind calling for memories of ages. Emptiness…It all came back with the sound of a spear pass closely by his head. He remembered. Eons of battle, his lust for blood growing with each new challenger, the rage, the thrill of power.And now, millennium after, a new challenger appears.”I am Set, and I challenge you to battle by the rules of ancient times!”Aeryes stared at him motionlessly.He knew that a challenge cannot be denied.He must fight. His memories
are back, but he has no power, he is a mere fourteen year old human.Set charges, spear firmly in his hand.
The flame in his eyes, the power as he rushed towards Aeryes.His speed twists as Aeryes thrusts him back.All that goes through his mind is:
“Why does he not fight?A throw, just a throw?He should have retaliated from such a reckless attack!”He charges again,
Aeryes tries to fight back, but there is no more power within him, just the weak human body.”Set advances wit a series of kicks. Aeryes can do nothing, but hope to survive.”You have lost it, haven’t you? The arcane knowledge is no longer in you!
This is a challenge that you shall lose! Ha, the invincible Aeryes! The one by whose hand fell thousands of warriors will fall by my power!”Set continued to beat him.With each strike, Aeryes fell deeper into despair, each hit hurting more and more…”Why don’t you just surrender?”As he spoke those words, something moved in Aeryes, the dark flow awakened again; ”I am Aeryes, the one who rules eternity, and I shall not fail!”He rose as many times before, hands laying loose by his side, his eyes dark and empty.
Mysts arise by his side and lightning strikes.Set is blinded for a moment, but as soon as the light subsides, he looks at Aeryes, now in full battle uniform.The mask covering his face, the amulet around his neck, the robe of the ancients. His eyes glow red as he rushes towards Set.Now scared, but still self confident, he draws his sword.In a blink of the eye, Aeryes disappears. Set:”Where are you, you coward? Show yourself and fight like a true warrior!”A motion in the air, and a swing of the blade…”Aeryes rules again!”Another battle won, another challenge passed. How many more, the number too large to imagine…But now Aeryes is at full power, and all that remains is the darkness, the power, the thrill of battle.He will fight, and he will win, over and over again!
