Protection and Chaos ( Drabble )
It was the night before the inferno of Lunar Village happened and there were going to be things that would change forever for those who would survive the nightmare. Kera who happened walking around the grounds of the village grounds as his optics were adverting to his surroundings along with soon setting sun within the distance miles away. Aya's parents were making their rounds to make sure everything would be alright for the night before they would retire for the night, Her parents were in their mid 40's as Aya and Kera being in their teens at this time. Kera's friend Aya was reassuring her younger sister that everything was going to be alright though both Kera and Aya had their anxiety of feeling that something was soon going to happen and it wasn't going to be good that being for sure.
Aya's parents felt like parent figures to Kera as well though he wasn't biologically their son though they thought of him as their son and part of the family and that meant so much to Kera for it was when Kera was 2 years of age and his brother Jerick was 5 was when the both of them lost both their own biological parents though Aya's parents swore to Kera and Jerick's parents that they would take them in if something terrible and tragic happened. Kera's anxiety was going through the roof though by his expressions he was doing his best of hidding it for not wanting everyone else to worry about him when there was more then him to worry about.
Hours later the sun was seconds from setting for the night and everyone else besides Kera were settling in for the night and get some rest though Kera's restless mind was on alert for knowing and feeling that he wouldn't be able to sleep tonight that being for sure. It was as soon at the sun went over the horizon within the distance came the odor of burning wood within the distance and the thought thinking nothing of it being nothing more then just a harmless bond fire within the distance though what he or anyone else knew that there was danger coming the direction of the village that would change everything forever.
It was the sound of Jerick blowing the danger horn was what caused Kera to turn in the oppisite directon and see a swarm of burning torches coming towards the village the glow of the flames of the torches revealed facial details of those who were carrying them and coming forwards towards the front gate of the village, what he didn't see til it was too late were demonic archers in the back of the line of demons with fire arrows as they begin shooting them as glowing red balls of flames landed on one of the roof of one of the huts as then the roof was on fire and engulfing the in now roaring flames, It didn't take long for that first hut to start burning out of control as screams were heard from inside the hut as those inside that first hut were screaming as they were burning to death.
From that first few arrows caused the fire to spread quickly from hut to hut til half of the village was now on fire, Aya, Lilly were able to get out of their hut before it started to be ingulfed into flames as they rushed towards Kera as the three of them stayed together in order to survive this night, it was seconds after that the three of them heard the agonizing screams coming from Aya's parents hut as they were being burned alive, then unexpectedly that crowd of demons who marched through the gate and went right into the burning hut of Aya'a parents as their screams were silenced by the stomach turning sounds of blades cutting through flesh as Aya's father's head rolled out of the burning hut while the flesh remaining was all burned and black from how badly the flesh was burned already. Aya and Lilly screamed bloody murder when they saw this and though Kera was heart broken and very upset he had to be strong for Aya and Lilly and hold in his own tears.
Tears stung his optics though he fought the urge of feeling to cry, he was not heartless or anything like that he knew that Aya's parents would want him to be strong of no matter what happened on this night. Jerick rushed over and did what he could to put the fires out though the leader of the demonic clan spotted him and charged towards him and beheaded him right infront of Kera as it was then the tears couldn't be fought back anymore as rivers of tears streamed from Kera's eyes as he watched his own flesh and brother older brother collapse and rapidly bleed out infront of him like this til his last breath.
The Demon Leader then turned towards Kera as Kera used his own body in attempt to shield Aya and Lilly behind him and take any hit from these demons as the leader then looked at him and turned his back before slaughtering the rest of the people who managed to get out of the remaining burning houses with just barely some minor burns only to have their heads cut off by these demons. Kera side turned to Lilly and told her when he gave the word for her to run and go hide undetected somewhere safe til it was safe to come out. The youngest MoonLighter didn't want to leave her older sister and Kera though she knew and felt that she was told this in order to survive and knew that Kera was going to tell Aya as well to go run and hide as well as Lilly obeyed and snuck away and out of the village in order to hide somewhere safe and undetected by the demon clan.
When Lilly was safely hidden Kera then turned to Aya and gave her a look that told her that she should go hide with Lilly, Aya nodded and as soon as Aya was about to go hide and Kera turned his back to make sure that she was safe it was then a hidden demon grabbed Aya and dragged her away into the night kicking and screaming. When Kera got close enough within the chase it was then all the demons in and out of the village just vanished as the huts continued to burn to the ground.
When the flames died down Kera went back to the remains and was greeted by piles of ash and burnt wood slabs everywhere it was then right there that he fell to his knees and screamed out loud in such agony of the sadness that not only did he loose the only biological family he had left his brother Jerick, He lost the two elders whom he strongly and respectlively thought as his parents for they had raised him as well after his own parents died, then right at that moment that he would search for Aya and Lilly no matter how long it took that was his vow to them as a close friend and like a brother to them both.
Weeks and months later he had been searching for the sisters and still there were no traces of them of their location or if they were still alive or not, His anxiety told him that they were dead and he should just give up on them though deep in his heart he knew they were alive out there somewhere. He had come across a river within the woods and thought it would be a good place to clean up and wash off the dried caked blood of the home he once knew and was now nothing but ash. It was then on the same side of the river he spotted the exact demon clan king as he then charged him in attempt to tackle and punch and stab the demon though even then there was a barrier around the demon so poor Kera couldn't land a single punch on the other.
The demon leader took this chance and sliced his weapon across Kera's torso tearing the flesh open as blood oozed out rapidly as Kera's eyes went ice white as then he suddenly shifted into a unicorn and attempt to stab the demon with his horn. That too was a complete fail and miss for sure as then the demon slashed again this time just grazing him to teach him a lesson as then the demon then vanished without saying anything of where Aya was located or if she was alive or dead.
