Lièrén walked with Shie, he listened to her and nodded in agreement.
"It is indeed wonderful"
He took in a deep breath and exhaled, he felt calmer around Shie, his troubles disappeared.
"It really is good to be back here"
He clicked his fingers and a fireball appeared in his hand once again.
"You know, I always wondered how to gain magical powers of my own, when I saw you in action with yours, when my soul was seared with demon fire, I thought I was going to die, but now I command the same kind of power they do, although I cannot cross between worlds like they can and I am a human so I do not destroy needlessly like they do"
He threw the fireball into the air and made it explode in a shower of sparks which drifted down and expired.
"The reason I am awake is because the demon lord showed up in what should have been a dream, but it was more of a vision, bordering across the two worlds, he spoke to me, I don't have much time left to prepare, I cannot sleep now because I do not want to see him again, I do not want him to tell me that time is up and that he is coming, I do not want to be the reason this village is destroyed"
He looked at Shie, tears in his eyes
"I am so sorry for all of the trouble I am bringing to you and your people, I promise I will save you all, no matter what, like with the demons before, I will stop them, even if I have to die to do so"
