In the aftermath of the Blackblood Raider attack, a somber mood settled over Ebonhollow. The villagers mourned their losses and tended to their wounded, their faces etched with grief and determination. Yet, a newfound unity and resilience permeated the air. The shared experience of defending their home had forged a stronger bond between them, a shared resolve to face the future with courage. The aftermath was not only a time for mourning but also for rebuilding. The villagers worked tirelessly to repair their damaged homes, tend to their wounded, and bury their dead. Kazuto, Anya, and Lyra joined in the efforts, offering comfort and support to those who had lost loved ones.

Elder Thomas, recognizing the need for guidance and wisdom in these trying times, called for a council of elders from neighboring villages. They gathered in the central square of Ebonhollow, a diverse group of men and women, their faces weathered by time and experience, their eyes reflecting the weight of the world on their shoulders.

Kazuto, Anya, and Lyra stood before the council, their presence a symbol of hope amidst the uncertainty. Elder Thomas recounted the events of the recent attack, highlighting Kazuto's heroism and the prophecy that had brought him to this world. He spoke of the hidden library, the knowledge they had gained, and the looming threat of the encroaching darkness.

The elders listened intently, their expressions a mix of skepticism and cautious optimism. Some questioned Kazuto's origins, doubting the veracity of the prophecy. They had heard tales of heroes and saviors before, only to be disappointed time and again. Others saw a glimmer of hope in his arrival, a chance to finally break free from the cycle of war and strife that had plagued the land for centuries.

After much debate and deliberation, the council reached a decision. They would send a delegation, led by Kazuto, Anya, and Lyra, to the neighboring kingdoms, bearing a message of unity and a plea for cooperation against the rising darkness.

It was a bold move, fraught with risk and uncertainty. The kingdoms had been bitter rivals for generations, their animosity fueled by ancient grudges and competing interests. But the elders knew that the threat they faced was too great to ignore. They had to set aside their differences and unite if they were to have any hope of survival.

The decision was not unanimous, however. Some elders voiced their concerns, fearing that the delegation would be seen as a sign of weakness or an attempt to usurp power. But Elder Thomas, with his unwavering belief in the prophecy and in Kazuto's potential, managed to sway the majority.

Kazuto, Anya, and Lyra accepted the council's mandate with a mix of determination and trepidation. They knew that their journey would be fraught with peril, but they were also driven by a sense of duty and a belief that they could make a difference.

As they prepared for their departure, Kazuto sought guidance from Aeterna. He ventured deep into the Whispering Woods, following the familiar path to the dragon's lair. The forest seemed different this time, the usual symphony of birdsong replaced by an eerie silence. A sense of foreboding hung heavy in the air, as if the very trees themselves were holding their breath.

Aeterna greeted him with a warm rumble, her eyes filled with a knowing light.
