Emma tore her vision away from the desolation before her and sought his loving gaze. Nodding, she lifted her hand and formed a pure white Light globe. It hovered just above her palm, pregnant with power yet patiently waiting for her command. Without the flick of a finger or any discernible movement, the globe rose and positioned itself in front of Kaiden, who took a step away from Emma, grasped the globe and hurled it into the center of the Amphitheater’s sarcophagus. With a bright flash and whoosh of air, fire engulfed the remnants of the structure where, mere two days ago, Emma and Kaiden were declared as Paired Light Warriors and became husband and wife.
As the building burned, so did the bodies of all those who died because of this heinous attack. Loved ones rimmed the outer edges of the funeral pyre at a safe distance, mourning their loss, saying a farewell and preparing for what was before them. This one act signaled the start of the war they had been expecting for many years. A war some believed would never come, thinking they had misunderstood the scriptures, and scoffed at those insisting on preparation. Yet here it was. They had come full circle, and the world would be at war once more. A lone tear trickled down her cheek, to her chin, growing pregnant with expectation, poised for release.
As Emma watched the fire lick at the timbers and turn them to ash, she knew her hopes for peace, for a quiet life, for children and a family had also turned to ash. Before her was a life of war, of battle and of loss. It was not what she wanted, but it was what had to be. In all of this, God had a plan. Her purpose was clear. She had to follow God’s will for her life. She took comfort from the fact that she was not alone in this, for she had Kaiden at her side. God had provided a helper, a friend and now a husband and lover. Together they would work to carry out their purpose and use the gifts God had given them. Right now, that purpose was to stop Primus Dominus, called the Master by his followers, from destroying all believers. They had to stop the war and protect their people. Protecting God’s Children, His people, was their role as Light-Warriors, and Emma’s role and purpose as a White-Light. The only known White-Light that was battle trained for such a purpose.
