What is death? To many, it is the one part of life feared the most, but what is death? Is it the ending of a mortal life in exchange for a spiritual one or is it the chance for a second life?
To Aaron death was simply a sweet release. His weary soul longed for freedom and so he yearned for death. Though even with death there was no pleasure for his torment seemed to know no bounds as he went from a world of darkness to another.
“No! This can’t be I am still blind, I can’t move. Were all those stories about afterlife a lie?
Tormented by fate Aaron went from a life as a cripple who could not see nor speak to a world of everlasting darkness where he would be alone for eternity.
To him fate was a cruel being, this had been the case when he was alive as Aaron Pendragon he was the son of a noble on Earth. Talented beyond comprehension with looks that caused any heart to be swayed. At first, it seemed like his destiny was meant to be great. However, that soon changed on his sixteen birthday. On that day he had lost it all and from then on his world had become nothing but a dark lonely place.
Surprisingly enough Aaron carried on with his life for fifteen more years. This was due to one person who had strived to bring joy to his world. The stories of adventures and fantasy worlds that were read to him kept his weary heart aglow.
Though fate had not given up on its endeavor to bring hell to his miserable life and soon the stories were no more. With his only escape from reality gone, he too soon followed as his flame died out.
“I know I died then why can’t I see nor move!”
In the cold darkness that Aaron was in he contemplated on his twisted fate. Yet soon he felt as though a strong pressure was bearing down on him.
“What is going on is dying and being left to an eternal darkness not enough? Now I must suffer through my own soul being crushed into oblivion too?”
However, soon after the pressure came Aaron felt relief as it dissipated in its place something different could be felt. The air was no longer cold it was warm and even though he could not open his eyes he was sure that there was light evading his darkness.
“What is going on?”
Confused Aaron contemplated about the changes yet in the next second he felt a pain rise inside his chest and then a noise broke past his lips.
“Did that noise come from me? It can’t be it sounded like a babies cry. Could it be, could I have been reborn?”
With the thought floating unanswered within Aaron’s mind he soon found himself tired and unable to fight the sleep that overcame him and so Aaron drifted off to sleep.
As Aaron slept his mother gently held him in her arms with a warm smile plastered on her face.
From the nearby room, a large man strode in after hearing the baby’s cry and neared his wife.
“Brom look this is your son!”
The man peered at his son. As he gazed at the child, warmth seeped into his heart. His eyes softened and then he looked at his wife and proclaimed.
“Mary he shall be called Trint!”
Under a bright moon, a child who had finally been blessed by fate was born. While his family celebrated their new addition, he slept with a confused mind. Yet, unknown to all of them the wheels of fate began to turn. And while the child slept, the essences of this world flowed unhindered into him.
So began the journey that will turn a broken man used by fate, reborn into a young boy who will become a legend destined for greatness.
