I can't leave.

Kian knew that something was wrong. Everybody was panic. People were shouting wildly about giving themselves up, but he could see no enemy. What was going on?

He went instead to the window, where he could see large, open fields. Why had he not left yet? he wondered. It was a bizarre thought. He did not want to be here, after all ...

Heading for the front door, Kian felt the belt under his shirt.

I can't leave.

But it was a hard decision. He had to leave! This place was full of strange magics that he did not understand - he had to leave!

I can't leave.

The belt was smooth and cold under his fingers.

I can't leave.

Kian knew it was the truth. He had to do his duty.

The End
