Beyond Good and Evil. Beyond Ever Afters. The tale of Sophie and Agatha comes to a dramatic conclusion. Prepare yourself for the End of Ends.
The first test was passed.
Excalibur pulled from the stone.
A new king named.
But two claim the crown.
The sword returns to the stone,
for only one is the true king.
The future I have seen has many possibilities…
So by my will, none shall be crowned until the Tournament is complete.
The Tournament of Kings.
Three answers to find.
A race to the finish.
My last coronation test.
Excalibur will crown the winner and take the loser’s head.
The first test is coming. Prepare . . .
