A/N: I own nothing. Sorry it's so short.

Valua.

The darkest continent under the six moons.

Birthplace of the Valuan Empire.

Birthplace of Prince Enrique, the future king.

It was his home.

It was his kingdom.

When he was young, he hated it.

The land.

The darkness.

The hopelessness.

He felt helpless.

Like he couldn't change anything.

Like he could never make things better.

Not for the poor.

Not for the powerless.

Not for the suffering.

But then he met them.

Vyse, Aika, and Fina.

They taught him to hope.

They taught him that the darker life got, the brighter a small flame appeared.

He wanted to be that for Valua.

He wanted to teach his people that their light came from each other.

He wanted to build an empire that was beautiful,

strong,

bright,

even in the darkest of places.
