Johannes Palace is considered as one of the most luxurious palaces across the world. Completed in Age 25, the palace is filled with embellishments, paintings, artifacts, architecture crafted by the best in order to drawn out the significant and charm of Johannes, the First King of Shina Ania. Tourists and Officials have noted numerous times of how several hallways have clocks decorated with pure, solidify gold. Today, it still continues to grow in numbers of items across the world as the tradition of the Kings is to ensure the remembrance of mankind in the palace. 

Johannes Palace is located 45 miles west of Forest of Memphis—the latter originally used as a ceremonial purposes to crown the next “King” of Shina Ania. It is surrounded by many, many trees that grew luxurious fruits—one claimed that a bite from the fruits the trees bear, will grant one happiness for eternity.  Johannes Palace is the official residence and main office for Shina Ania affairs for the King of Shina Ania. Only the descendants of the First King is considered to be worthy to take the throne and become the next ruler. 

Khalid is the 14th King of Shina Ania.
Elewa and Olivia, riding upon Pegasus, were soaring through the skies. The journey was about a few hours to across from Paradice and Shina Ania. The vast oceans, plenty of islands they had passed by, before arriving the astounding palace for the King. 

"There is she, the palace, fitting for our ruler.." Elewa commented, pointing towards the castle for Olivia to see as they are approaching it.
"Wow.... this huge palace for one guy? It looks like it could just take up a whole city by itself!" Olivia's mind already started trying to predict what it would look like on the inside. Would it be as grand as it looked from the outside? Surely it was an ancient landmark, but does it look like that from the inside?

"You could probably house a whole city of people in there..." perhaps that was an exagerrated guess on her part since she'd never even seen more than a castle in some dusty library book.
"Indeed! It is something worthy for the King of Shina Ania!" Elewa expressed in gratitude. The Pegasus landed gently onto the ground in the courtyard. There were tons of other Pegasus flying across the sky as well, some had a person riding on them, some of them freely fly through the clouds with no care in the world. 

As Elewa jumped off the horse, Elewa lend his hand to see if Olivia needed assistance of getting off. "Need assistance?" He asked.
Olivia sheepishly looked towards the ground. She was far too short to dismount the pegasus without a rough landing, as she had a semi-petite frame. "Oh... uh, yeah..." She took the man's hand with her bare hand in order to make her way to the ground easily. "Thanks."
“It is my pleasure, Ms. Olivia.” Elewa replied. He petted the Pegasus before it flew off towards the sky. “Well, let’s make haste towards the King. We should bring about a tour after we’re done discussing things. Is that alright?”
"Totally! Might as well go sight-seeing while I have the opportunity, seeing the state of the place right now..." Olivia smiled as she watched the Pegasi fly throughout the sky. "But I've never talked to anyone royal in my life, so hopefully I don't come across as rude by accident..."
"It's quite alright, Ms. Olivia." Elewa brushed himself up, to look presentable in front of the King. "The King is very liberal compared to our previous predecessors."

Elewa escorted Olivia towards an large door from the side of the palace. From an glance, it shined bright like gold, with jewels glittering as the sunlight bounced off. "So you do not need to be so formal in speaking with the King. At any rate, let me do the talking."  Elewa touched the door. The door light up like fireworks, and began to opened. "Now, let's proceed, will we?"
Olivia nodded her head nervously. "Y-yessir! Right behind you." She followed the man and hoped that if she were to speak to the King, it wasn't going to be anything that would make her sound stupid or something. Ah, I'm getting nervous again! Maybe it's from how fancy everything looks... it all looks expensive and fragile... Hopefully I don't trip and break something too. That would be just horrific... The teenager forced herself to calm down by breathing slowly and deeply as they walked. I wonder how old the King is too...?
As Elewa escort Olivia, both of them entered the palace. From every corner, the walls is fill with artworks across the world. Artifacts, paintings, sculptures, anything form of medium shared their representations in the palace.

Furthermore, there was various of staff doing their daily routines. Their dress resemblances something from eons ago. There were maids that dressed in black and white variations, while men are servants. Although, there were few exceptions, such as female servants. All of them appeared to be friendly to Olivia. They offered various of goodies to the young warrior, such as foods and items.
"Oh, um... no thank you... I am a bit peckish though..." Olivia didn't deny some of the finger foods offered to her. She took a handful of snacks and continued walking, looking around at the collections.
"Please, don't mind the servants and maids. They always love it when visitors come and visit the palace." Elewa chuckled. "So they will have the tendency of over-showering visitors with gifts and foods." 

Down the hall from where they walked, there is a large door made of gold and diamonds plastered.
"I can't complain... the food tastes amazing," Olivia laughed. "Big doors..." she realized she was about to meet their King, so she immediately shoved the rest of the food she took in her mouth and brushed the crumbs off her hands to look more presentable. "Ready," she said through a muffled voice before finishing off the food.
Elewa opened the door. "Miss, let's meet the king..." The door opened, it show nothing more than a empty room. There was a single chair in the dead center, with a figure seated. On each side, there was a warrior. The figure himself, seems to be nothing more than a small child. 

"Your majesty, I have presented you, the warrior that will answer our call of help." Elewa bowed down on his knees.

"An warrior, huh?" The boy turns to Olivia. "You're strong, right?"
I... wasn't expecting their King to be a little boy... he looks younger than I am. Olivia thought in surprise. "Uh... yeah, I guess I am. Strong enough to be of help to you..." She bowed her head nervously. "I'll even show you, if you aren't convinced by my appearance alone."
"No need to be so formal." The king said. "I trust Elewa's judgement on these things. Never once had he been wrong before." 

"Your majesty, you are too kind." Elewa responded.

"My question wasn't about your physical ability, my lady." The king said. "My question refers to your mental state."
"...If I weren't strong in the mind, I wouldn't be standing here in your lands. I'm putting a lot at risk coming here." Olivia responded. "I'm certainly not hardened by war or anything, but the way I live now isn't one I would choose if I were... I don't like to use this word, but, weak." 

"As long as my allies are with me, I can keep my emotional ground just fine. I won't crack easily, I can assure you."
The King smiled. "Good! Lots of people always come and goes and tackle the mission, but when they hear the details, they often run away!" He chuckled. "My name is Khalid! Nice to meet you, miss!" Khalid went over to Olivia in a causal manner and offer his hand to her for a shake. "Thanks for accepting this dangerous mission... I hope we are not asking much out of you to take this."
"Right. I'm Olivia," She said as she returned the handshake. "I don't have much better to do anyway, since the jobs I do aren't daily occurrences as it is. I guess the first thing I ought to ask is about the disease you have ravaging the country... How that showed up just in Shina Ania is interesting."
Khalid nodded. "Right...." Khalid cleared his throat before speaking. "Unfortunately, we do not know the cause of the disease." Khalid had a depressive face when speaking about the topic. "The only clue is that it seems to be a tool." Khalid look at Olivia's face. "An tool by Ruopee to destabilize Shina Ania for colonization." 

"The Royal family passed various measures to make sure the disease is contain." Elewa spoked. "None of the citizens, that caught the disease, had every left the continent. Only those that formed a pact with monsters, with permission of the king, can do so."
