The Legend of Divine Mystics - Chapter 4
Chapter 4: King of Supernaturals
The world of Supernaturals, a realm that is famously known by the name, Amar realm (A/N: meaning immortal in Hindi). This world mainly consists of 5 floating islands in the form of floors. The lowest level is the island of the goblins. The goblins mostly inhabited the first level and was said to be a home for the weakest of all the supernaturals. But this island does not consist of just the goblins, it also consisted of some lower level beasts and rogues of all kinds.
Then there’s the second level, the land of the mermaids. The island was mostly abandoned after the war that took place about a 100 years ago between the demons and the mermaids. Ever since then, most of the mermaids started living in the mortal realm (A/N: The realm in which Anuja lives currently. The ancestors of Fiona and other mermaids were the ones who decided to come into the mortal realm.)
The land of the mermaids also consisted of some fairies who lived on the other end of the island in a secluded place. It was said that the reason why the fairies remained safe from the demon attack was that they had hidden that part of the island with the help of a few witches. No outsider would be able to enter unless they were invited or if they have fairy blood running through their veins. The island has a beautiful waterfall at its edge, which flowed freely downwards to the lower islands, forming a water passage.
Such passages, along with some hidden magical caves, were present in all the islands/levels.
The third level is the island of the vampires. This level is inhabited by higher level beasts along with the vampires. All the other creatures were restricted to enter this level. Vampires were only allowed to feed on beast blood. Some said that the restriction was placed due to the long enmity between the Vampire King Ralph and The King of Supernaturals, Ryan. Ryan was a half-breed—a half-wolf and half-Sewen. (A/N: Sewens are the creatures considered most powerful of all.)
Sewens were the ones ruling the world of immortals since the very start. The last Sewen ruler and father of Ryan, King Ronald, was half-blood too, he was a half-vampire and half-Sewen by blood. His mate, Queen Rose, was a werewolf and was killed by a vampire. Ever since then, the vampires (except those of the noble lineage) were forbidden from entering the other levels.
The fourth level consists of elves and witches. The last and fifth level consisted of demons and werewolves. The two most powerful kinds of supernaturals. Due to a treaty between the two kinds for about 10,000 years ago, they had a peaceful relationship. The one ruling all of these supernaturals is Emperor Ryan, King of all Kings, shrouded in mystery. Not many people have seen him, but he is said to be a just yet cruel ruler. He believed in treating everyone the way they treat others. In his eyes, all are equal.
Inside Ryan’s castle.
Striding towards a majestic door was a man with the appearance of a 25 year old. He was a handsome guy with a wild but sexy look. His countenance was as beautiful as the god Shiva (A/N: an Indian mythology god). His red hair flowed down behind him, giving him a fierce look, which was complemented by his emerald green eyes.
His aura made everyone around him surrender. His beauty can make people weak on their knees, enough to even make some of them buckle on the ground. He was wearing a light weight armour, which was light, in comparison to its looks. He wears it daily, just in case a fight breaks down, which, in this realm, might happen at any time.Walking alongside with him is a man with golden hair and playful aura.
“Hey, Ryan, do we need to have this meeting so early in the morning? Can’t we wait for the sun to rise?!” Said the cheerful-looking man with a mischievous tone.
“Saphaeis, do I really need to tell you just how important this meeting is?!” Ryan said in an arrogant tone, but with a tinge of softness in his voice to his best friend, Saphaeis. Saphaeis was his military general.
Two guards stood at the entrance of the door. They bowed towards the two approaching figures and then opened the doors with a loud clunk.
“Emperor Ryan, King of all Kings, King of all Supernaturals, has arrived.”
The majestic figure of the Emperor entered the room. His face was not friendly or the kind and soft-hearted face he was making earlier, rather, it was now a cold and cruel demeanor fit for an Emperor. After his entrance, there followed Saphaeis with a not so pleased expression.
After the meeting, “that went quite smoothly,” Saphaeis said in a sarcastic tone.
“Shut your mouth Saphaeis!!!” Something has been nagging on Ryan’s mind. His wolf, Star, was unusually active today. In the last 200 years, it didn’t interact much with him.
At the time when his wolf stopped connecting to him, a witch made a prophecy about him.”A time will come when the chosen one will arrive. The one who shall pave the path to peace among all the supernaturals. The one who shall change the ways and the hearts of the vampires. The one who shall prevent both of the worlds’ destruction. The one who shall make the heart of his dead heart beat again. The one who would not belong to this world, but still have the powers of this world. The one with the power and the blood of the witch queen.”
But he wasn’t able to understand those words. His wolf acting up made him remember the prophecy. Well, he wasn’t superstitious enough to believe in things like prophecies.
In order to cool his head and forget all that nonsense, he decided to take a break outside the castle. A good run with his wolf would not only calm him but the wolf as well. Then they could have a chance to talk with each other after a long time. He said his goodbye to Saphaeis and went inside his room. Ryan immediately changed into a light feathery T-shirt and jeans.
After changing, he opened his bedroom window and peeked outside. The height of his window from the ground is a good 100 feet, a meager height for a person like him.
He stepped onto the window sill and looked towards the setting sun. Then, he jumped down. As he was nearing the ground, gorgeous red wings covered with golden patterns and with a golden edge emerged from his back. He flew towards the forest to the north of the castle.
At the entrance of the forest.
Ryan smoothly landed on the ground covered with grass. He retracted his wings with the power of his Sewen blood’s magic. Afterwards, he started to remove his clothes.
He hid them under a nearby tree. He has a muscular body with well-defined abs, a height of 6’2”, and a beautifully sculpted face that made everyone who looked at him muddle-headed.
He summoned his wolf from his space. Its black fur twinkled in the darkness of the moonless night. Getting its freedom after such a long time, the wolf didn’t waste much time and made a sprint to the forest. It passed through the trees like a free-flowing wind. After a long run of freedom, it felt thirsty and went in search for a body of water.
But it didn’t need much effort as its way was predestined. Moving towards the clear-watered lake, it saw a body floating on the surface of the water. He returned to his human form to have a closer look.
That was when he saw it, or rather her, a beautiful being, a beautiful girl. Ryan wondered where she came from. Her silvery hair is floating on the surface of the water. A strange light is emitting from her as if she was a mystical being. He dived into the water and swam towards her, picked her up in his arms. Her body was cold as ice.
He immediately became anxious and felt her pulse and breathing. She was still alive, but he knew of the growing chances of death with low body temperature. He decided to take her home in order to protect her. Later, he could ask her where she came from in the name of the heavens.
But what he didn’t know was that soon, his life would get mixed into the chaotic threads of life in such an unimaginable way that he, himself, wouldn’t be able to imagine.
