(A darkening world part 2)
There was a time when our kind could exist in only the deepest, darkest holes and caverns beneath the ground.
As the death-bringing, skin-scorching suns above began to die, so our world grew.
We emerged, bred, and flourished in our new kingdom, as more of the hated skyfires dimmed and finally darkened, we swept across the Nightland.
The detestable Lightlings flee from us, they run from the silky life-giving blackness that sustains our eternal existence. They scamper to remain in their searing heat-filled slice of this planet, desperately clinging to the clawhold left to them.
Yes, they run....
And we follow.
We follow, watch, plot, and wait.
Be afraid Lightlings, we will feed on your fear, for we are here, just one step beyond the light's edge.
We will have you, and your piece of this world. Soon.... Very soon.
Your only remaining sun has begun to flicker, just as the others did.
The time of the Dayland is almost done.
Our time is near.
And we are hungry.
