TBCSS: S02E10 – Hope Dies Last

hdl

Sendor is invincible with the sword, the three kings don’t stand a chance and, despite their courage and their efforts, they fall one by one. Their bodies lie on the ground, motionless and destroyed, as if they have no meaning anymore: the justice and purity of the heart of the just was not enough to counter the darkness that lurks in the heart of the sorcerer. Sendor is excited, he can finally proceed with the ritual he’s been planning for sixteen years, impatient and hopeful he focuses, lays Surod’s body on a table and gently crosses his hands on his chest, anoints his forehead with an oil, then raises his sword in the air and draws a magical symbol while reciting the spell in a ancient language. The spell draws energy from all that is around and in an instant everything becomes silent, it would seem like a good sign, but Sendor is restless. The power in his hands is immense, yet the ritual does not work! He repeats the magic refrain again, he shakes the sword, the air is full of energy, but nothing happens, Surod’s eyes are still empty. The wizard trys again, and again, and again, there is nothing wrong with the procedure, but it just doesn’t work.
Anger and disappointment begin to intoxicate Sendor’s body, which was already sorely tested by the evil possession of the sword, and after another vain attempt he completely loses control, the monster inside him takes over and his thirst for vengeance becomes insurmountable. The dark wizard turns around, sees the kings on the ground and lashes out at them to let off steam debasing their helpless bodies; panting, he prepares to inflict the death blow upon Alron but suddenly a loud noise and a shower of glass stop him: it’s Daltor the dragon hunter, who straddling the Black Dragon, has broken through the glass wall of the living room and landed behind the sorcerer.
Daltor gives a quick look at the room, in a corner he spots his silver sword and runs immediately to grab it. The sight of his almost lifeless friends Alron and Rahed, who used to be so strong and vigorous, upset him, but when he sees the body of the poor and sweet Shena, his heart really explodes with anger and disgust for the horrible beast that is in front of him. The hero is very tired, hurt and still recovering from a long battle with the dragon, but he is ready to fight again to put an end to this nightmare.
“Your tricks are useless, prepare to die because I will have no mercy for you, there’s no humanity in you and it will be my pleasure to terminate you, you horrible, crazy monster.”
Sendor, increasingly impatient, just cannot bear to hear the reproaches of a little bug and, at the peak of his anger, he challenges Daltor to put words into action, and mockingly intimates the hero to fight, for the glory and peace.
An extraordinary duel is about to begin, an epic battle between good and evil: Daltor against Sendor.
Hell is taking over.

 

10.HOPE DIES LAST

[Storyteller]
Valiant knights laying still on the floor
this is how this tragic story goes
Bravery sometimes is not enough
when youʼre faced with darkness itself

In the end Sendor couldnʼt be stopped
now his plan is complete
he can bring back on his own
the sweet treasure heʼs lost
for a fatherʼs love can go all the way

The evil wizard
puts a spell on Dorus
but his soul wonʼt come back

[Sendor]
Silence reigns in the ghostly halls
even the owls speak no more
All is calm and the feel is surreal
but inside I have a restless heart

[Storyteller]
In the end Sendor couldnʼt be stopped
now his plan is complete
he can bring back on his own
the sweet treasure heʼs lost
for a fatherʼs love can go
all the way

The evil wizard
puts a spell on Dorus
but his sould wonʼt come back
The evil wizard
tries all over again
but his sould wonʼt come back

Anger and pain
drove him insane
he will kill
the defenceless kings
but as he goes for them
a windowpane breaks
he turns around
and Daltor is there!

[Daltor]
You see Iʼm here, your magic tricks are
nothing compared to my dexterity in the art
of training dragons like this one
you see Iʼm here, the game is over
you will regret, you will repent even thinking
of stealing that cursed crystal sword

[Storyteller]
Daltorʼs shaken
by what he sees before him
tired of fighting
but now heʼs ready once again

[Daltor]
Look what youʼve done, these people are good
they donʼt deserve to die this way from the hand of
a miserable filthy coward man
Look what youʼve done, you crazy monster
how could you be so cruel and cold to hurt so bad
a lady so fair and fragile

[Storyteller]
Daltorʼs shaken
by what he sees before him
tired of fighting
but now heʼs ready once again to start
another round

[Sendor]
Alright now Iʼve had enough
I see you seem to know it all
if you donʼt mind we could draw our swords
and solve this thing as men!

[Storyteller]
When all hope seemed to be gone a light came through the dark. Daltor on the back of the guardian dragon broke through the windows of the castle landing behind Sendor. Seeing the kings and Dorus lying unconcious on the ground he took back his Silver Sword. Sendorʼs look is full of hatred and pain, the magic sword has made him furious. A long and intense battle is about to begin…

[Sendor]
Raise the sword! For the glory and peace, let the fight begin!

    First, hail to your exciting vocal. The story you write is epic. So what’s the result of the battle between Daltor and Sendor? And who passed away in front of Shena hopelessly? As I’m trying to memorize lyrics of ‘In My Arms’, I’m pretty curious about that.
