As he stood up and looked over the young women he felt rather sorry for her as she sat there in tears. '' For someone who is immortal you are a sensitive being.. '' Pausing some as he scratches his chin '' Oh yes you must think me evil, considering what happened in the past. I am blamed for the downfall of Siannodel, but in reality I had no control over that situation, if I wanted to destroy a Kingdom I would of done so, but this Empire you live in is sole proof that I do not desire such mindless destruction. '' he continued as he spoke calmly '' I understand your fears agianst me but time has changed, and I give you my word I have changed as well. Now we shouldn't stay here to long considering the current dangers were all in and now is not the time to allow the past to haunt us, we must press on to the future and move on, learn from it and hope we do not make the same mistakes twice.'' with a shrug of his shoulders ' Come lets go to the Palace right now it's the safest location, we are evacuating the Empire due to the undead legions that are not attacking us, soldiers are dying left and right mostly out of exhaustion we can afford to lose this Empire and rebuild after they rested. '' he hoped to himself as he explained that this change and plan would suffice to gain her trust for now, he turned around as undead begin to come about rising from the ashes as a frown turning to the young girl extending his hands '' compose yourself and lets go before we get over whelmed.. we must choose our battles carefully''
Do keep the present in thought, an illusion can kill you if you believe in it.
