The First Act of a Young Count

 

On the 12th of the Tobias’ Bounty, Sigmar awoke to a crisp cool wind in his bedroom in Ayr. He walked out onto his balcony not realizing this would be a day he would never forget. He finished his studies with his Grandfather Marius, and went to his father’s old study where he sat reading the days missives. He came across many in which he didn’t understand, until his Grandfather explained it to him. the Declaration of Northern Sovereignty and Independence gladdened him, but soon his happiness was crushed as he learned that the war for a free Northern Kingdom against the Fake Empire of Murderers, cutthroats, thieves, bandits, tyrants, and traitors Known as Renatus, was still going on. After hearing the news he was reminded once more of traitors, such as his father who was executed, and his Mother who ran away to the cutthroat nation of Renatus. He thought again on why, why she left her children behind, Sigmar’s brother and sister. Her cousins and eldest brothers. She even betrayed Sigmar’s grandfather Marius who welcomed her into his family with open arms. This question rattled around Sigmar’s head for hours, he was frustrated, angry, and confused not knowing the answer. He soon fixated on something his grandfather said. Something about titles. He soon realized exactly why his mother left, She was afraid. She was Afraid and unfaithful. She did not believe in the Crown, she did not believe in the army, and most importantly she did not believe in her family. So, in a move for power, she abandoned her children and her family for their titles. She thought that if she switched, if Haense was lost, she would become the new Countess of Ayr. She wanted the power, and soon after looking at her other letter in which she stated that she accepted her treacherous brother’s olive branch, she still called herself the Countess of Ayr and the Regent. Sigmar knew at that moment he was right, and knew he must do something about it.

  

So he went for counseling to his uncles and grandfather. His Uncle Duncan reprimanded him for saying such foolish things, and promised him that his mother did it out of love and that she thought she was doing the right thing, but this answer did not satisfy him. it was too unrealistic, too fairytale. So he then went to his grandfather, Marius, whom told him that she was just a misguided sheep, that she lost her way because of fear and that she still loved them, he told Sigmar he was too young to understand. This angered him, he saw all their answers now as veils of deceit and lies. Lies because to them, he was merely a child, too immature to understand. He wanted to show everyone he could be the Count. So, he was determined to do what he thought was best for his family, for Ayr.

 

He waited until most of them men were asleep in Saint’s Rest, till Grandfather went to his room, and until Uncle Duncan headed back to Reza. He awoke his big sister and a guard to come with him to the feast hall, where he would set the trap for his greedy treacherous mother. He then sent a letter to his mother, asking her to come back, and that he missed her. A trap like this set on truths that were deep in his heart hurt Sigmar, and he half wished that she would not show. They waited about an hour, then they heard footsteps and as he looked out the window he saw her. He soon regretted his decision, his hands began to tremble and his face became red. he had gone too far, he wasn’t ready for this. thoughts raced through his mind until he remembered something Grandfather had said to him once both his parents left him, “It is your duty as the heir of House Baruch to be a leader. You are a Count, be the Count you were destined to be. Do what is right and just for this County, this family, and this kingdom.” These words stuck with him and he knew what he must do. She was his mother, but she was also a traitor, and a traitors fate is death. So he did what he had to do. As she walked in they talked, she tried to explain to him why she did it, but he did not care why anymore, his mind was made up. this was something he must do, He must prove himself a just Count, he must kill the traitor no matter who it was to him. He tried and sentenced Lilliana for treason. It hurt him to do such, soon his hands began to tremble once more and he began to cry. Before the execution, he and his sister hugged their mother one last time, as a symbol of putting what was about to happen behind them. Sigmar loved his mother, but his duty comes before love. He then took out his sword, Darkheart, the sword his sister had made for him, and he stuck it through her stomach holding her in his arms as she faded away. She accepted her fate as the strong woman she was, her head held high. Sigmar decided to make this as a statement to all traitors. He sent her body back to his treacherous uncle with a letter. a letter promising to do the same to a traitor like him. He signed it Sigmar Joren Baruch, Count of Ayr, Slayer of Traitors.

“Kinslayer all the same. Shed the blood of your family, see how it ends.” spoke an old red man.

In Lily's final moments she was able to realize her dreams. Embracing Sigmar, and Kamilla one last time, she told them to be strong in her stead. And to always hold to one another.

 

As she laid on the cold floor of her once home, Lily gazed up at the greatest gifts she had ever been given. She had expected to feel fear, but the sight of them brought her the deepest sense of tranquility, she was finally home.

 

She softly spoke her last words, the words that her soul needed to say. "I love you."

Duncan thinks this mans a buffoon and this topic is completely different from that but the ignorant baboon just can’t comprehend normal things.
