It was past midnight and night fell. I laid down on a nearby bench and looked up at the ceiling. Artorius found his bed on a bench and so did Felix. No one dared move either and just let them rest.
I was asked if I would take a room but I decided on a bench as well since there were more soldiers to be treated.
The clinic lights were dimmed but there were soldiers that were being treated. The sound of healers and alchemists trying to keep them from dying kept me awake the entire night. I felt anxious for Wilhelm.
Nevertheless I stopped worrying soon as I knew he would be fine. His condition was already getting better from before and his blood supply is back to normal.
I closed my eyes but all I could see and hear were the sounds of war and chaos. Volleys of arrows, swords clashing, shields breaking, elements being created and fired. All I could remember was being in the middle of all this madness and knowing one thing, that is to kill.
I could not sleep no matter how hard I tried. I got tired and decided to take a walk around the city itself. I knew the sights would not be pretty but its better than laying here doing nothing.
I got up and checked on Artorius and Felix. They were both sound asleep on their benches.
I left the clinic and took a deep breath of the air outside. It smelt odd due to the war but it was better than the clinic where the only smell was of odd medicines and blood.
I took a walk around the city and checked out the buildings and shops. All of which looked marvelous and great pieces of architecture. They looked quite old but still stood strong with no issues.
There were many bodies still being put to rest. I took a look at the cemetery which filled up to the max capacity. It was sad seeing so many troops being laid to rest. The fact that this is happening all across the border is terrifying and sad.
There were so many innocent men who risked their lives to defend against Lukas. Hes gone but the damage he did to the land still echoed on. Even still, Artorius asked for him to be honoured.
The night was gloomy and dark. There was a cold breeze constantly blowing past, hopefully bringing in rain that would soon clean off the grounds here of the bloodshed. Was this all worth it?
I fell into deep thinking as I watched the cemetery from afar. Multiple bodies are being laid to rest one by one, slowly but surely. Families torn apart for what?
I get irritated and rub my forehead.
