"Well done Melee! It has been eons since a feral had been slain, but you did it!" King Pliet congratulated as he stood from his throne.
"Thank you sir. My men performed admirably today as well."
"You are the one that trained them in the skills they used on this day, so the credit still rightfully belongs to you."
Melee didn't like this attempt at flattery. An army was only as strong as its weakest soldier and he ensured that all his men were the best. He kept this thought to himself though; another thought still perplexed him.
"Your majesty, did you ever get my messenger?"
"Messenger? Can't say that I did. Why did you send one?"
"When we found the rogue army with a feral, I sent for reinforcements to guarantee victory. We never saw the messenger return."
"Ah, well that is troubling. Did he have a specific route to follow?"
"The one we took to get where we were."

Melee's men had already taken their pre-planned positions around the hidden road in the forest. His army was broken up into several groups, ready to ambush the small, rogue army when they came.
As for Serent, Melee was already planning on taking on the monstrous beast himself. The tales of victories against the feral dragons in the past scrolled through his mind, providing a list of possible strategies on how to take down this enemy. He had to be eliminated before he took off from his perch.
One man stayed behind at the cliff, ready to alert Melee via horn if Serent moved from his spot. The dragon still remained there, barely moving a muscle since the army entered the area.
For the time being, silence filled the air. Time was nearly at a standstill, at least which is how it felt to the army. The cavalry archers managed to keep their horses silent as they waited. Melee and

Two days passed before Melee found himself kneeling in the royal chamber, in front of King Pliet's throne. Two guards covered in heavy armor stood by the sides of the middle-aged human.
Pliet, having inherited the throne from his father after he passed long before the dragon rebellions, is the youngest ruler in the history of the Silver Kingdom. He has proven to be a fair king and has held sympathy for the dragons after seeing first-hand how his father treated them during his rule; a common criticism amongst his opponents during his first years in the position. In fact, some peasants say that Pliet's childhood was permanently scarred with those memories, clouding his judgment. He never shows anything to confirm or deny it though.
The young man, only in his mid-twenties, motioned for Melee to stand from his kneeling state. "I have heard about Ashleaf. Do you know of how many are dead?"

Melee and his army's trek came to an end a few hours later when Ashleaf's walls came into view...at least what was left of them. Smoke bellowed from the area, creating several streams that flowed into the atmosphere. The army was still a mile away from the city, but the tell-tale signs made them recognize decimation when they saw it.
"There still might be survivors. Stay on guard and move into the city," Silver ordered.
His voice was firm, but his mind was not. Even though he swore to protect everything in the kingdom, his biggest concern at this point was Natalie and her family. Yes, she left him for another human and entered a deep depression because of it, but inside, he knew she was doing it to protect each other in the end. Rage and sadness welt up inside him, yet he remained able to hide these emotions from his men.
The march was solemn, nothing but the increasing sound of fire c
I'm a 25-year-old who currently resides in the Phoenix area (until recently, I used to live in central NJ). These days, I spend most of my time partaking in glorious activities like sleeping in, hating myself immensely, and wondering where I went wrong in life. I sometimes make attempts at drawing animal people and such. If I manage to draw something that I find isn't completely terrible, I'll probably even upload it here!|
Admittedly, I'm not a very chatty individual, as some of my friends may tell you - I'm a man of few words and am slow to trust others. I hope you don't take it personally.
Nevertheless, anyone is welcome to comment on my drawings. I take my work seriously and am always looking to improve, so if there's anything about my art you really like and would like to see more of, or if you think there's something that you think I could stand to improve on, then feel free to let me know. I may not always like what you have to say and I often won't respond, but rest assured, I will read and listen to all your comments.
I also like playing video games. I've got a bunch of games and consoles, though most of my game time is currently spent on my 360. If you want to add me, my gamertag is the same as username here: SilverMelee.
I'm currently thinking about opening commissions. I don't really have anything set up yet, and I'd like to make at least one or two more sample pictures before laying down some ground rules and setting some prices, but if you really want to commission me, feel free to drop me a note and maybe we can work something out.
