The land of Sanitatum is said to be filled with magic and wonder, but it is also plagued by a contagious magical curse that threatens humanity's survival. It is the purpose of the heir to the throne, Simba Adofo, to inherit his father's crown and find a way to vanquish the curse he hates for corrupting his land. However, when he finds himself caught in a web of lies to prevent his succession, he must team up with a cursed boy named Hari to unravel his kingdom's insidious past to reclaim his crown and cure the curse once and for all. __________________________________________ With regards to friendship, family, love, and expectations, Afflicted offers a commentary on the shortcomings of reality, as well as my own anxieties about life through the lens of a fantasy world. I hope that by its completion it touches all who read it. Every week a chapter is updated, a new chapter illustration is drawn by me to accompany the story. There will be a total of around 32 chapters and drawings in the finalized story. I sincerely hope you enjoy my writing and artwork.
