'Perhaps that is why the earth elemental chose me' Tam spoke in a distant voice. 'Because he knows that I am good.'

'Will you really make this world better?' his father asked.

'Yes' Tam nodded. 'This world, and as many others as I can find…for as long as I can live for, even if it's hard to do so. I will make this entire world as peaceful and agreeable as this little town, where everyone is kind and nothing bad ever happens.'

Tam lifted the object in his hands, staring down at it.

A dark mask with large eyes like windows, and a long pointed beak. A plague mask, like the ones the others wore

'I am the right one for the task' Tam mumbled, speaking to the mask he held in both his hands. 'I will achieve great things...'

He raised his head to glance towards his family, smiling as he did. Tam turned from them, concealing the mask beneath his cloak.

'I will be back this evening' he said to them as he made his way to the door. 'I won't be gone long. I promise.'

He opened the door, starting back in surprise.

'Lucas…what are you…?'

Lucas without a pause raised the gun, and shot Tam point blank in the head.

Blood splattered the walls. The family screamed, as they saw Tam fall back dead.

Deep in the forest, within the same world but far away, Reuben woke. Pulling himself from the earth that had grown around him, and turning to Love who lay beside him.

'Love' he whispered her name. 'Love?'

But she was utterly still.

Reuben grabbed her shoulders suddenly, shaking her roughly and calling out her name. But she was completely limp.

Her body would eventually rot away, returning to the earth from whence it came, and the spot where she had died, would sprout the most beautiful flowers, which would last for many moons, until they too withered away.

It was a long time later when Reuben finally returned to the home he knew as Lacklustre Paradise. Here he found his brother waiting for him.

'She's dead' Reuben whispered to him.

'I know' Lucas replied. 'I'm sorry.'

Lucas handed the mask back to Reuben. Reuben stared at it in confusion for a few seconds, before taking it.

'Welcome home brother' Lucas said. 'It's good to have you back.'

Interlude end

'The priest will be here?' Cam uttered.

'Yes' Miranda replied, gliding past them. 'He has reached these shores, and rides to the capital as we speak……he will arrive sometime soon. Today in fact.'

Cam glanced towards Valery, who was watching him closely, eyes

wide with expectation.

'Today?' Cam mumbled, feeling suddenly in shock.

'And tomorrow' Luke told him, leaning back against the desk with his arms folded, 'you will be married as quickly as possible. Then perhaps something could be done about this dreadful council.'

Out in the corridor a short time later, when they were alone, Valery turned to Cam, embracing him tightly.

'What are you…?'

'I'm just so happy' Valery interrupted him, voice muffled as she spoke into his clothes, holding him tight. 'I want to be married. I want to be yours. I want to be the queen instead of just a princess.'

'You will' Cam whispered to her, holding her back. 'You will.'

'Cam!' came a sudden and sharp barking call. 'I want to see you in my office.'

Cam's heart plummeted sharply in his chest, and he felt a sudden and sharp fear claw its way into him.

Cam turned, eyes wide as he tried to force himself not to tremble, force himself to stay strong, as he stared back at Brioke who stood behind him.

He swallowed the lump in his throat.

'Is everything alright Cam?' Valery asked him stepping back.

'Yes' he spoke quietly to her, forcing himself to smile. 'Yes everything's fine.'

He looked back at Brioke, who stared at him with a stony expression. Even now he dare not defy him.

'Cam?' Valery asked him, sounding suddenly nervous.

'Can you…' Cam whispered urgently, 'go back to our room?'

'What? But why?' she instantly protested.

'Just…' Cam fumbled. 'Please' he begged. 'Everything is alright I promise. I just need you to go back to your room for a minute. I will join you shortly.'

Valery ground her teeth, glancing once towards Brioke, before looking back at Cam.

'Are you sure?'

'Yes' Cam hastened. 'Just go. Please. I'll be alright I promise.'

Valery stepped away from them both reluctantly. Turning on her heel she marched away, sparing just one last glance back at them, before rounding the corner.

Cam let out the breath he had been holding, glancing hesitantly towards Brioke. Now the two were alone.

'Come with me' Brioke ordered, striding away without pause.

Cam scratched his itchy palms, before following after him. Together they walked through the palace with its many stairs, and back to Brioke's office.

Cam entered the office, and Brioke closed the door behind him.

'I cannot let you go through with this.'

Cam turned back to Brioke, watching him closely. But he was utterly silent. He held his tongue.
