As the months passed, the spite Emperatriz held for Dragonian King slowly but surely turned into love. Then one day, soldiers came to Emperatriz's rescue after a lengthy and perilous campaign. Seeing the princess in the embrace of her ominous abductor, they hastly fired a hail of arrows. The King protected her from the onslaught, shielding her body with his own. Seeing his bloodied form riddled with arrows, Emperatriz wailed in despair and leaped before him as the second salvo approached. Their unfortunate beginning mirrored their unfortunate end.
