The night finally crawled into Endymion. Peaceful nights were a mere facade that the general populace accepted. Only for the sake of the sense of stability and safety they so hungrily craved for. It's a reality one Queen of Endymion knew for a long time. She intently watched the bright emanating lights of the City from her window. It was full of life and it was thriving under this Peace. But at the same time, this calm wouldn't be for long. After all, Mankind was a rather self-conflicting species. There was going to be a moment a trial this City must face once more. In the end, it was up to Julius to get his forces ready.
"I am present, my Queen." a voice spoke from the now opened doorway. After a bow, her footsteps were silent upon entering the private chambers. Each step was one of self-assured confidence and militaristic poise as they drew nearer to the monarch. The Nameless Guard has entered the private chambers as her Queen sat on a seat near the window.
"It would seem Invidia was attacked last night. How troubling..."
"The years of peace made him incompetent. Do you wish me to mete out punishment?"
"You're far too eager, old friend. But it isn't necessary. He was able to carry out his purpose. I am sure he will be able to redouble his efforts next time," the Queen coolly replied in amusement. It wasn't like she didn't know how territorial her elects were. Nor was it like she was ignorant of the ongoing tensions between the District Heads. So far, it kept a steady balance and a thriving environment within Endymion for all of these years so far. But the real question was, would it be able to carry through the incoming obstacle? "What report does Julius give us on his recent recruits?"
The capped woman twitched at the mention. While her expression remained collected, her Queen can recognize her distaste for them. Milksop weaklings who have their own motivations to join the Cadets. There were a number who proved themselves able and loyal, but they were still ultimately untested in her view. "Your son reports they are slowly and surely becoming stronger through each task given to them. He assures a significant number have already proven themselves able. Cadets Maria Woodsworth, Athena Griva, and Shiina Tsurinai are soon expected to replace our earlier losses. Your daughter and the rest are following behind."
The Lamecia matriarch nodded in satisfaction. Losing Chris and Claire were considerable losses. Before, Julius and his trio were a popular team. And most importantly, they worked well together before. But now, they returned being some of the most dangerous enemies the Cadets would have to face themselves. Knowing Julius, he would be sure the new children he was rearing would prove themselves to her. Lisa failed once and she had a long way to go. But it seemed that she was still well on her way, at the least. Her pleasant and relaxed demeanor slowly grew to have something resembling a grimace... and a longing. "Do we have any reports from the Outer Rim on Domiona? And of 'them'?"
"They report no known outside activity from their territory. They do not stir as of yet despite all of the... 'filth'," the Guard stiffly replied as she bowed down her head. The distaste on her face returned after mentioning about the District Heads. She remembered what happened then, the schism. But she couldn't disrespect them, at least not in front of her Queen. Though she noted that scant hint of disappointment. "Then you may be dismissed."
She bowed and left the premises. The Queen looked back at the window like before. Tonight, seemed so peaceful. Would it continue to be? It made her remember of the other's existence. It made her wonder how 'they're' faring on the other side.
