Extraction and Elimination
*CHIIII—* The very moment Arwen was taken away, a piercing sound exploded in the icy castle, causing the air to quiver and the ground to tremble.
Large numbers of guards knelt on the ground, shuddering as they begged the Arctic Queen to quell her anger.
However, their prayers were to no avail.
A dazzling blue light swept out, wrapping up the entire castle within. The icy beings in the castle, be they guards, maids, servants, or prisoners, all turned into ice sculptures. Streams of blue light gathered from their bodies, tunnelling into the ground like earthworms.
*Whoosh!* When all the blue lustre disappeared from the ice sculptures, numerous cracks appeared on them as they crumbled apart to form a snow-white powder. The castle sank into a deathly silence.
Meanwhile, in another place deep underground.
The steel-like ice opened up automatically, showing a structure similar to a basement. An Eternal Light spell illuminated the entire area.
