A Battle of Magic and Mutterings

How could he!?
How could he betray me and the kingdom like this!?
How could everything he taught me be a lie!?

And so it has come to this.
I had hoped the rumors of treason were false,
But, alas, they were true.

Very well, I will stand in his way.
My duty is to protect this kingdom,
And that is what I will do.

He mutters a few words 
And an attack flashes my way.
I mutter my own and repel it.

This could go on forever.
Even though I am younger by over a hundred years,
I am just as strong as he.

He always told me I was gifted,
Told me that I was blessed with untold power.
Well, now is the time to find out.

Even above our magic and mutterings I hear the battle outside.
I don’t have much time.
The longer he’s alive, the more the kingdom is destroyed.

There is only one way I know to destroy him.
But am I strong enough?
Am I strong enough to hold the spell?

I’m not afraid of death.
I’m only afraid of dying
If I don’t take him with me.

The time has come.
It is now or never.
God, help me succeed.

“Actus eritos inspiritus!”

As soon as the words leave my mouth,
I feel the power loosed.
I did not know I had so much.

Yellow flames burst from my hands.
He knows what I have done
And now tries to stop it.

Yet I am too powerful.
I have become what he has told me I was.
My potential is revealed.

The magic engulfs him
And he releases a scream.
The sound tears in to my soul.

I feel myself growing weak.
The yellow magic surrounding him has turned white,
And I can no longer see him.

All of a sudden, 
My power is gone.
I can’t even stand.

I fall to my knees.
As blackness falls over me,
I see the light dissipate and die.

I do not know if I was successful.
I do not know when or if I will awake.
All I can do is hope.
