News of Sylva's liberation spread like wildfire throughout Aterra, carried by the winds and whispered among the trees. It reached the ears of kings and queens, generals and warriors, peasants and nobles alike. For many, it was a beacon of hope in a time of despair, a testament to the power of unity and the possibility of overcoming the encroaching darkness.

The Council of Kings, a gathering of monarchs from all the major kingdoms of Aterra, was convened in the neutral city of Nexus, a bustling metropolis built on the crossroads of ancient trade routes. The council had long been a platform for political maneuvering and diplomatic posturing, but this time, the stakes were higher than ever before.

Kazuto, Anya, Lyra, and Isolde, along with Elrond and a contingent of elven warriors, were invited to attend the council. They arrived in Nexus to a mixed reception. Some greeted them with open arms, hailing them as heroes and saviors. Others eyed them with suspicion, their mistrust of outsiders and their skepticism of the prophecy evident in their cold stares.

The council chamber was a grand hall, its walls adorned with tapestries depicting the history of Aterra. The air was thick with tension as the monarchs and their advisors took their seats. King Nereus of Lythmore, his face etched with the wisdom of the sea, sat beside Queen Elysia of Eldoria, her regal bearing and sharp eyes a reminder of her cunning and ambition.

Kazuto, Anya, Lyra, and Isolde stood before the council, the Heart of Aeterna radiating a gentle warmth in Kazuto's hand. They recounted their journey through Sylva, their encounter with the corrupted creatures, and their discovery of the hidden spring and the Tear of Sylva. They spoke of the Ritual of Renewal and the miraculous healing of the forest, their voices filled with passion and conviction.

Their words were met with a mix of awe, skepticism, and outright hostility. Some of the monarchs, particularly those whose kingdoms were still suffering under the darkness's grip, were eager to believe in the possibility of salvation. Others, more pragmatic and cynical, saw the delegation's claims as a ploy for power, a thinly veiled attempt to usurp their authority.

King Oberon of Arden, a proud and arrogant ruler known for his martial prowess, scoffed at the notion of unity.
