Having abandoned my post over two years ago, a lot in my life has changed. I've finally settled down and begun working in my career. Before, I was juggling university and career. I'm ready to once again ask for membership and begin my ascension from the beginning.
Thump! ... Thump! ...Thump! ... Thump!
The beating within my chest generated an explosion. My heavily labored breath competed with the sound of ocean water crashing against the city walls. My hands grasped in desperation, seeking to steady their body. My hands... those same now drenched in blood. Hands for which not even dirt would stick to. Did I hear them laughing? Enjoying the theatrics of my dwindling life? Thump! .... Thump! ... Thump!
Betraying those dreams of holding myself up... I made my first step. The harmonious chanting of the metal chains strapped around my body ran out; as if a church choir. While in another time, in such a situation, would I have clung to the safety of the city. Now... I could only hope to escape it. A city known to be so beautiful, not even the emperor would draw blade. Stained and soiled in red. A work of art I now contributed to. Thump! ... Thump!
I could hear the familiar sound of footsteps on the cobblestone streets. One of feet that had no familiarity with the ground they now stepped on. Should I turn, I risked using the last few grains of sand in my arsenal as a final act of submission. So I steadied myself and took another step.
"You really... won't turn to greet me?" Her voice was filled with so much disappointment. Despite lacking the energy to do it consciously, my face twisted into a crooked smile.
Ayy! The return! Once Bryson gets here you'll be all sorted out, good to have you back
Welcome back Sebastian, just join back on the discord and we can get you sorted. You don't need to reapply and redo the first few ranks unless you really want to.
