Fire rained from above as screams rang out across the landscape. The earth shook, reverberations reaching across plains and even to the mountains. The world was under siege.
Maleathia gazed, wings folded and tail curled around herself, from her fortifications.
Even if fire were to reach her, the rocks rain upon her, the very sky fall, she would remain immovable. Yet, she had no desire to see the rest of the earth burn. She tucked her head under her wings as a steaming tear fell to the ground and shattered into a thousand diamonds. There was nothing she could do.
She would remain immovable. She was Maleathia.
