Three years prior to the beginning of the story, a village was destroyed by an evil Smarg (magical creature). The sole survivors of the massacre, the sisters Chloe and Iria, fled to a nearby village. The younger sister, Chloe, is mute. However, she is a friendly and diligent worker who is loved by all. The older sister, Iria, is disruptive, rude, and cruel, especially towards her unfailingly loyal sister. But, how did two young girls manage to escape such a powerful creature in the first place?

Fantastic Oneshot

Its great how the author managed to give me so many feels within this oneshot. Tatania has pretty much covered whatever I wanted to say so Ill keep this short. Fantasy is normally not my thing but I was surprised that I enjoyed this story nonetheless. So I think with this story even if you dont like some of its genres and categories you will likely still enjoy it as it goes further than what fhe genre and categories are.

I cried. A oneshot has to have some real substance to provoke such feelings. And let me tell you, the substance in this story truly broke my heart.

It starts with a smarg attack in a village which only two sisters, Ilia and Chloe, survived. They start living in another village at a bar. But, there's one problem. Ilia has suddenly become hateful towards the entire world, including her beloved sister. The story proceeds from there.

Read this! You get high returns without investing much time.

Oneshot with a lot of thought

Why did I cry? Why did I CRY?!? Maybe it has something to do with me having sisters and relating to how much I care for them. This one tops my lists as a favorite oneshot. Recommended to those who have sisters and who enjoy fantasy.

I decided to read this One Shot on the spur of the moment one day and Im really glad I did! It was an excellent short story that I would recommend to anyone.

Plot- Very unique and interesting, in the beginning not many things are explained about the two girls past except they were the sole survivors of a Smarg attack. As the story progresses you learn more things slowly about what really happened, adding great plot twists to the story.

Characters- One thing I really enjoyed about the characters is no one is as they appear, everyone is harboring a secret, and this makes the plot more enjoyable as we try and figure out the characters and this makes the characters themselves more realistic and interesting.

Art- A very nice style with satisfactory artwork.

Other- This has to be one of the best One Shots Ive read, it has a great plot that, for a One Shot, has a lot of depth and twists. The characters are great, and the ending is wonderful and ties up so nicely! I recommend this, it wont take long to read but Im sure youll find it quite enjoyable.

9/10 Was great

There was a bit of drama in the story but I felt that it was used quite brilliantly, in order to create tension and to cement our initial impressions of the entire cast. The cast was quite interesting and actually, rather fleshed out, such that you cared for, worried about or even hated them for their various motivations.

I loved the 2 twists within the story, btw. Just when things seemed like what they'd be at first sight, the story suddenly took another direction!
