Soul Eating Arc

On a cold winter morning, in a time before the light: A soldier walks through the streets of a castle town... Until the silhouette of a knight rises in the moonlight, the soldier notices and barely turns to see the knight watching... "I'm tired as shit... how about tellin' the king you didn't see nothin'?" the soldier suggests. The knight laughs "You idiots REALLY think you can disturb our sister kingdom and casually go wherever you want??!" his laugh QUICKLY changed to a angry roaring as he leaps off the hill he stood upon and came down upon the stranger! The soldier looks up in annoyance and wave their HUGE glam once: Breaking the knight's own blade in half as well as the man himself!! The soldier then walks away "He had the higher ground... I wonder why it didn't help him?".

 

Back at a campsite: on the outskirts of the kingdom walls... the soldier returns to the army... Many can be seen eating, talkin and playing. Even children are present, along with many types of animals.. almost as if it was a small village in and off itself. The soldier's then greeted by a prince...   "Greetings General, and how was your trip back?" he asks nonchalantly. The general sighs "Some guy actually thought he could jump on my head, I'm like: What the hell?"... the General walks away "That guy wassa complete idiot, we need to get outta here soon, Gabriel!". The prince follows "Yes, we are always on the same wavelength: I suggest we leave, too, if the kings men ever find out we're here: the women and children will be I grave danger!". The general replies "Then let's call 'em all back! I can see Xoro and Prata are off doin' somethin' stupid... Well, Xoro is: I'm sure Prata's still hangin' around here...", Gabriel smiles as he states "Then I shall use the GossipRock, hopefully they're both still here in Midgar...". A weird light flows from him and a red eye emblazons on his forehead...!!

 

Meanwhile: in downtown Midgar: Xoro trades attacks with a samurai! The man then leaps back from him you're pretty good for one of these 1st class pieces of shit! But nobody fights me an' lives to talk about it!", he then aims his blade at the samurai and recited "Sword of darkness!". Shadows covers his sword and some of his arm as he continued "You idiots don't ever know who you're messing with: I'mma captain of the biggest army out there! And I know some of yer fancy magic, too! Whatcha gonna do about it?!". The samurai steps forward "I'll kill you, for I have something to..", "STOP!!!". Bot men stop and turn to see a small witch standing behind the samurai! She then pleaded: "Don't do it, Mifune! Even if you win, you'd get hurt! Let's just go back home!"... The samurai sighed...then smiles "Okay... we'll go back..", he looks over his shoulder "We'll continue this some other time: my first goal's to protect her: no matter what the king says...". He walks away as Xoro laughed "Really??! That brat's controlling ya!!? Go ahead walk away with that bitch, you bitch!!! HAHA!!", the samurai (angrily) leaves as Xoro laughed... until he hears a humming in his ear, that turns into Gabriel's voice! "Captain, it's time to return: We've been found out... And PLEASE stop bragging about our army: we're suppose to stay hidden..". The captain yells back "Awww come one! I was jus' havin' fun! Also, Let 'em hear what we are! We shouldn't hide: we're the strongest right?! ...Right!!?", he suddenly realized: "SHITT! That guy hung up on me! I'm gonna kick his bony ass when I get back!!!".

Meanwhile: Near the Eastern gate of Midgar... A archer and his two comrades picks off animals in the distance... The archer wipes his brow as he puts down his crossbow "There, killing two birds with one stone... This was good training and we've got dinner!" he says happily.. One of the women puts her bow down "I think I got a bunch... We should have lots of dear.. for weeks, looks like!"... The other woman throws down her bow "No fair! You only got more because your breasts are too small too block your shots, Beth!". The man sighed and replies "Your... sizes have nothing t..."he's cut off as  the woman turns towards her: "That has nothing to do with how much you suck! This isn't even a competition!! Why're you so dumb, Moni!?". She shouted back "I'm not! YOU'RE the dumb one, you just don't have anything in your way, lucky!", Beth retorts "I'm not: or I'd hit 100% of whatever I'm aiming for, have bigger titties than you AND  wouldn't have to listen to your stupid drivel!". Moni stomps the ground "You don't need bigger boobs, you already got too much good luck anyway! You need to be taken down a peg!". Beth turns towards the man (Who's staring blankly into the distance) "Charles: tell my stupid sister that our tits have nothin' to do with how well we shoot!"... He turns slowly towards them "I just got a message from the prince: he says to return soon... And.. please leave me out of this: I honestly can't know if ...having a... breasts helps or not..."... Beth sighs and follows him to collect the deer as Moni says "We're so gonna fight when we get back!". she marches after them...

 

Later, back in the camp: Gabriel stands on a pulpit as he speaks to everyone: "Ladies and gentlemen, we have been found again by the enemy: So we have no choice but again move out. I know this might sound disappointing to some, but we must go before the children: our future, are hurt. if we're to take back our kingdom, then we must be able to make any move necessary to fight back against my corrupt father! I thank you all for coming with me, but I again ask that you live here: no one knows we're keeping villagers such as you, and would invite you into their ranks."... A man rises as he says "I think I speak for all of when we say: we wouldn't leave you for the world! Me, my friends and comrades all share the same goal! We'll stay by your side!", almost everybody cheers in agreement after hearing this speech: and start to pick up their belongings, to move very soon... The general stands up from a bench "Damn... Gabriel knows how to get them hyped up...", Prata laughs "Guess he does, the guy's a prince: he had practice making up fancy assed speeches... hell, Even Xoro admitted he likes the guy...". The general laughed too "No fuckin' way! I betcha that guy's plannin' on gankin' him to take the army!"... no sooner this' said: when Xoro stomps up to Gabriel "Hey... you! You hung up on the almighty, powerful Xoro!! What the hell!!?". The prince sighs in annoyance "And you cursed out a man protecting a child: I was far too disappointed to continue speaking..."... he closes his eyes in sadness... The captain shuddered "Damn man, it's just a small thing... I'm sure th' girl didn't learn that shit or nothin'...".. the prince replies as he slowly opens his eyes "Really? I'd hate for us to make more enemies and be in a tight spot: because of something YOU said, even in jest..."... Xoro sighed sharply and marched away... Prata looks at the general "See?!", ...the General stares "Seriously... dude that's so gay!"...

The army: Legion of Rebels, have been traveling for weeks. Verily, the people start to grow weary and hungry, due to the miles of nearly empty wasteland, baring few creatures, un-edible monsters and spirits, and few edible vegetables... They pass another kingdom on their way for food, but after a few days: have quickly realized that more enemies resided there, too and continue on, with at very least a little more food... Until one night... The General rides beside Gabriel on the horses, in front of the army: constantly leading the way, day and night... But now starts to doze off... The prince notices "My dear general, why don't you rest for a while? There's no need for both of us to torture ourselves like this. You sleep, while I take lead, now." he offers. The General sighs in annoyance "Do I look tired?! I'm fine! I'll just go get somethin' to eat or take a shit or somethin'..."... the general turns the warhorse around and rides back to a carriage being pulled by several horses... The general dismounts and goes inside "Good, no one's inside..." the general thought, then lies on the single cot in the corner... Until a small voice's heard! "Mommy look, the general's in our house!" a girl squeals! The mother and daughter both step back as the General gets up, the mother chastises: "Honey, you woke him up! Why did you scream so...". She interrupted: "Forget about it, I shouldn't be sleep anyway: Gabriel told me to try ta rest, but ya can't do that while leading a army!", the girl goggles "So cool! Isn't.. oh..." she suddenly looks upset, "What's wrong?" The general asks. The girls explains "I left my dolly back In the other place, in the church... We'll never go back and get Cherry, now...". The mother sighs" PLEASE stop complaining to a soldier!"... the General laughs "Listen, it's fine: People got problems, the best thing ya can do is complain: she ain't hurtin' no one!"... The general then hops outside the slow moving carriage and unties the warhorse again... Another soldier walks up behind the general "Hey, where you going?" she asks... The general mounts the warhorse and replies "Mira?! Just checkin' somethin'... Um.. I think I left my arm cannon back at the last place...". The soldier wondered "You're going back for a arm canon!!? You can just buy another, hell.. If we finally get a technical blacksmith, we could make one here!".... The General then lied "I payed too fuckin' much: I'm gettin' my shit back, now!" and kicks the horse, causing it to run off!!!

 

A hour later: it's now becoming midnight as the General nears the only church in the petty-kingdom... "Shit... the things I do because I'm fucking stupid...", "Yeah..." the general hears, then turns to see Prata!!? "What the hell are you doing here, Lieutenant-General!!!?" the general yells... Prata laughed "MAJOR General told me you were comin' back to this shithole alone! So I came to back you up!".. The General turns back around "Fine, but stop trying to make me shit myself!"... Prata laughs as he follows the general to the church stairs: they then open the church doors... and sees the doll a few feet away from the entrance.. the general goes to pick it up, and then notices... "That's a kid??". Prata scoffed "Yeah... looks like a priest's kid.. Let's  get outta here...", the doors suddenly slam!!!! The only light there now: is from the blue fires that're lit in the candelabras surrounding the pews and pulpit... The fires illuminate the child, too... It then turns to reveal it's eyes are covered by it's shaggy bangs... 

The General steps back "What the fuck?? Did the kid do this?!", Prata replies "If it's another knight: it probably knows magic..". The child lifts their head and reveals it's purple-glowing eyes!!! Light illuminates the inside of their mouth and nostrils, too!!! "What the hell's up with that kid!!!?" the Major general yells... The General brandishes the Glam: "It's possessed: the possessed always have some sort of freaky features! They used to be uneasy to notice at first, but they can't possess anyone without showing a sign now...".. The child replies ina garbled male voice "OH, so you know ALL about US! Huh!!? WHat shOUlD we do, Kuro!!?"... the child shrieks and replies in a female voice "W, we... what should we do? We we can't hurt them, right???". It shrieks again, and the garbled voice replied: "MothEr Says To KiLL!!!!!!!!". The child darts violently, then leaped at the duo!!!! The General slaps the child with flat side of the glam, Prat follows up by slamming it's face with bottom of his sickle!!! While the child's flung back: The General leaped over Prata and swung down at it's arm!!! A *SKkkkkkkkSH* can be heard as it flings away! The Major-General looks up at the General "Dude... did that kill it!?", the general replied "We might have a choice... Remember? the last possessed guy we fought, thanked us for staking his heart! We can only free the damned person...". The child stood slowly... drizzles of black fluid streams from it's neck... "We CAN"t Geet To CloSE, KUro!!!", "Then we'll hit 'em high..."... The general and Prata steps back in surprise as the nearly unharmed child fires a sword beam!!! The general tries dispersing it with the Glam, but is suddenly slammed into the doors HARD!!! Prata kneels over the general "Dammit! What the hell!?" he asks, the General replied "R, run... Actually, drag me out... too! I didn't put on m, my ch.. chainmail, because I thought this was gonna be a simple thing...". The Major-General stand up in front of his comrade: "No way: Even if you couldn't stop that, I'll find a way around it!"... The child shudders "He already found a way around it???!", "TheN ATTack WiTh The SwoRDDDD! The Beam Won't WOrrrKKKKK So MeleEEEE will!!". The child suddenly charged as fast as light, and sliced through Prata!!! Blood sprays everywhere,  as the child backflipped away... The General gets up and take a knee... "Shit!!! PRATA! What the hell!!?", he replied "That kid... moved to fast... Demons never....". The General then looks at the child: despite moving that fast: the body's healing back rapidly... The child then takes another fighting stance: "One more..." it says in a cute voice, then  darts violently again and almost takes the General's head, as the general grabs the Glam...!

Gabriel suddenly smashed down the door and stabs the child In the eye!! The black fluid spray all over him, as the kid shrieks and steps back... he then grabs Prata's arm... "I'll finish this quickly..." he assured.. The general stared in surprise "Wh, what are you doin' here??!"... he smiles and turns away as he stood back up "Mira finally told me what happened, I got here as quickly as I could."... The child darts towards him as he speaks!! The prince suddenly stabs inside it's mouth and throws it outside!!! Then leaps after the child... The General turns to see the child convulsing on the ground... Gabriel laughs "It's sad... but we sent the demon back to hell, and saved a child from eternal torment.".. He then starts to glare... "Wait... General, can't you sense that!!?", the General shrugged "Wh, what!!? Ya know I ain't no magic-user!! What is it!!!?"... He looks into the sky "I, it's a witch!!!"... they both look up to see a silhouette hovering in front of the moon: a snake suddenly drops from this shadow and bits the child!! The duo looks back down again to see the snake engulfing the child, then itself until it disappears... The witch herself also disappears!!!

The night Prata was injured, he's carried back to the army and is thusly stitched and unable to fight until his wound ist healed. Verily, the soldier's missed on the battlefield and the realization that more soldiers are needed becomes apparent. Thus, the prince approaches the General, who's in a carriage: days after they left the petty-kingdom... "My dear general... I feel we should recruit more men into our legion.." he says "Our ranks are strong: yet, losing one of our more successful fighters has hindered our fighting skills immensely against monsters. Imagine how much worse it shall be when we fight against a organized army?". The General replies "Alright, that's awesome! Tell me how that shit goes... Good luck, buddy!", Gabriel smiles in annoyance "Friend, you have to help to. Take part, of the glorious phenomena of  making comrades!" he finishes the sentence with a real-smile... The General sighed hard: "Fine, dammit! I'll talk to some brats and shit..." the General gets off a cot in anger.. The prince laughs slightly "Thank you, you're always reliable!", the general smirks "Yeah, yeah... Don't get all shitty on me...". They suddenly se one of the army's doctors-in-soldiers walking by: "What the hell!? Frank's in here too??!" The general asks... Then calls out "Hey doctor, how's Prata? The guy up and movin' yet??". Frank turns towards the General: "No General sir: Before, we'd have the tools and technology needed for that. But now, the body has a lot more to heal... Me and Nurse Madoka have both been watching him around the clock..."... The General sighs "Alright, forget it... shit...", Frank sees the disappointed look on the General's face and then suggests "He's well enough to get visits, now... Maybe seeing him will cheer him up?"... The General sighed "No dude, I don't wanna see him unable to move an' shit! Jus' tell me when he's able to be  a smartass like usual..".. The doctor shrugs and leaves... The prince leaves too..

The army stops in the kingdom of Camelot, there: they search for my recruits into the army as they try to also get food and water... Meanwhile... Xoro sneaks away with Charles towards the forest surrounding the kingdom! "Alright man, this is it! Once we get the sword, we'll be invincible!" the captain explained, Charles replied "I'm only coming because I have a thing against letting in unexperienced people, so I've nothing better to do.?. Xoro laughed "Than help me, right? If ya see anybody else with it: shoot their ass for me!". Charles arched his eyebrow "Wait, what!?  Look... Why do you want it? I thought you were almighty!" he asks in annoyance, the captain turns towards him "Don't make fun of me! Hear me!!? If we get this, it'll be for protectin' the weak people! I'll use it for that!"... he turns and marched away as the archer rolls his eyes "(Whatever makes you sleep at night...)"... They then happen upon a forest clearing with a sword embed inside a stone!!! "HOLY SHIT!!!" Xoro cheered as he ran to it, Charles casually follows "Yay, we found it: Um... HOW do we know this is it? And is the sword magical? How do we know our efforts are worth the reward?".. The captain grabs the sword "Stop bitchin' ya punk! We got the thing!!!", he yanks it... but it doesn't come out... "SHiiiiiiit! What gives?!". The archer walks besides him "It's suppose to come out for the true king of Camelot, observe: I wouldn't be able to, either...", Charles reaches at the hilt... then pulls out a box of wetwipe and wiped the handle off... "What the fuck does tat mean, shithead!!!? Xoro shouted in annoyance... Charles grabs the hilt "You know EXACTLY what it means: many have touched this, and on a larger scale: YOU probably killed something and didn't wash your hands.". The captain almost retorts when the blades slides out of the stone... "I... I'm the king??!" Charles wondered in excitement, the captain replied "No, I loosened it: you jus' got lucky, boy!". The sword then gives a unearthly glow, then breaks!!! The men stare at it, then at each other... and quietly leave...

The army has a smooth time in Camelot so far (Outside of Xoro and Charles' breaking Excalibur...) ad new recruits have started coming in, thanks to Prata and Gabriel's way of talking with people... Though not all the grunts and villagers are successful: many have convinced people of Camelot to join their cause.... Though their cause was never clear outside of a rebelling against a corrupt kingdom, even to most of the army... This caused many to fail in recruiting as well... Mira in fact loses a potential soldier... "Shit... Welp, that's it for today..." she thought aloud and starts back towards the camp: "I don't even wanna keep doing this crap myself..." her thoughts are broken by a fellow soldier: "Major-General!" he calls out! She turns to see: "Warrant Officer!!?"... she walks to him "Elliot? What's wrong??". He salutes as he explains "I think I need to explain something..", she stares in curiosity "What dya mean 'explain'?". He gestures for her to follow him "Please come with me... it's about what we'll tell people to get them to join..."... She followed: now to curious as to what's happening beyond the surface... They find a quiet building with a balcony, and stand up there as he says "We might have to tell them the whole truth, I have: but not to the more scared looking soldiers: we need canon fodder, too..."... Mira asks in annoyance: "What IS the real story?! I thought we were just plotting to kill the prince's dad!!?"... Elliot turns towards her in shock "You didn't know?!!! No wonder... I bet the others probably don't either..."... he looks away again: "Alright, I tell you the full truth: What I know and what Gabriel told me and Frank, himself... In his kingdom: Avalon, 800 ears ago, there was a Archdemon roaming the world.. and it had travelled there one night... Fortunately: all Gabriel's family, his ancestors are well versed in all magic. So his ancestor had cast to loose the Archdemon's skin and peeled it off him! Then tied him up in it, and placed a seal, disabling the archdemon from being freed of it's own skin and Avalon itself. But... Gabriel's dad has been offering children to the demon, in order keep rule over the kingdom despite the corrupt deals and actions he's took. The places' beautiful... but it destroyed many other kingdoms to simply feed the demon and stroke his ego. That's why Gabriel rebelled against him and why we're helping... he wishes to overthrow his father and strengthen the seal on the demon, to keep it from ever breaking free..."... Mira stares in awe.. "Wait a minute... so those things that possess people and make the m look all crazy: there's a stronger one under the kingdom!!? And someone's trying to set it free!!???" she ask in horror.. Elliot replies "More so he's taking power from it, but he isn't paying attention to the fact that the seal CAN break and it'll be much harder to reseal, let alone trying to kill it: ESPECIALLY since he's feeding it humans..."... He turns away... hopefully this information can be explained clearly to braver would-be-warriors and their will to save the kingdom will be strong..." he walks away... As Mira goes to tell the Commander...

Verily, upon the coming of midspring: Prata heals from his injuries completely as the Legion of Rebels braked in Camelot. Nurse Madoka has given him a clean bill of health, and he along with the many new recruits are ready to fight for their prince and human rights. The army now heads to another kingdom after upgrading their armor, weapons and mode of transportation.

Inside a steam and water powered carriage, the General's awaken by the prince "My dear General, please wake up...". The General sat up and frowns "What the hell, Gabriel?! You keep telling me to sleep and now..". The prince chuckles "Yes, I do.. But for now, I must inform you this as you're also a leader of our army: We have been successful in gathering new recruits and upgrading our weaponry. As of this moment, I've decided to head to Lioness, to take down my father!", the General replies "Hell yeah! That's fucking great!! We just need to hurry before winter!".  Gabriel sighed "We won't make it back before then... And we have a more serious problem: our own Leader General doesn't have any social skills!", the General sighed in annoyance as the prince explains "I've watched you with the GossipRock and you haven't recruited a single person into Legion of Rebels!". The General holds his forehead "Alright, alright! Don't passive-agressive yell: I'll try when we get to the next kingdom!", Gabriel turns to leave "I hope you do, for we'll only be stopping at Avalon: the only Kingdom that for sure hasn't turned on us. Before we reach Lyonesse"... 

7-4-XXXX
 

Thusly, the army hast turned back near civilization and waters of which they triest to avoid, for reason of the Kingsmen looking for them in many kingdoms that are alligned with Lyonesse. Verily, they past these kingdoms and villages until they reach London: There, the General and few other soldiers has prophetic dreams of a undead knight atop slepnir.. After many more weeks, they reach the kingdom of Avalon. The General travels it's streets, noticing how lively it is compared to other places... "The guy was right... This place IS different, I wonder why the fuck they haven't alligned with Lyonesse?! They're so close, yet they don't wanna have nothin' to do with killing us..".. The General then notices a teen eating bread... The teen stops and looks back up at the General.. "I'm gonna get fucked up, now! Is that one of the knights from this sector?!" he thought... The General smiles and asks "Lemme gues, ya stole that, huh?!", the teen replies "Y... yeah...". The General kneels behind the foodstand with him "Lucky you: I ain't no fucking cop!  I'mma General from a travelling army, and we need someone slippery as you in it! If ya go, I can promise you food and shit, um.. What's ya name?"... The teen replies: "Lys...", The General stares "(Sounds strange... Dutch maybe?) Alright Mr. Lys, can I get ya to join?!". The teen replies "I'm not a fighter, much less a killer.. so...", the General laughs "That's fine! You'll be safe! You can be a sneak attack guy or somethin'!". Lys smiles wryly "Then I'll guess I'll go?".. The General laughs proudly as the teen follows back to the camp to be trained... "What the hell did I do? This guy looks shady as hell.. But maybe I'll learn some shit so I won't be sneaking around any longer.."...

Verily, verily: During the trip to Lyonesse, monsters and small groups attacked.. Leading few deaths. This whole time, Lys ist unable to kill or fight despite training. Leading to ridicule and laughter from the soldiers of every rank, even from the other Cadets in the army. Thus, the only one who did not follow this action was the General, and the prince and Bethany, who thusly stopped and ignored it respectively. Verily, they did get to the Kingdom of Lyonesse and upon reaching it, where in time for another sacrificial ceramony of which  Gabriel pretended to take part of for reason of a sneak attack... 

12-23-XXXX

The soldiers split up and divide around the kingdom walls, some go inside while others camp about the area... Of the platoon that when in the castle-town: The General, prince and few soldiers followed... "So we're goin' in and actin' nice until we spring inta action?!" The General asks...  Gabriel replied "Yes, and pleaee don't say anything out loud, it took alot to earn father's trust again..". The General shrugs "OK, I get it! Let's just hurry to eat before shit goes down!" the general speeds away, Lys sighs and speedwalks after the General (To stay away from the others...) Prata nudges Gabriel "Hey princey, how DID you get your hardass dad to listen?!", the prince explained quietly "By sleeping with the princess, she then pulled a few strimgs for us... I beg you to keep this quiet!". Prata gagged "Don't worry 'bout that, man! Isn't she like a cousin or something?! Ya hear this Kilik?!", the soldier replied "Yea man, incest in royal families is usually distant, but it's still nasty!".  Gabriel sighed "I did what I have to: and she's a distant.. sister... I think, nothing close...", the other soldiers cringe anyway as they head to the castle...

12:00 Midnight

The General and Lys near the castle, when they hear *pssst*.. They turn to see Frank!!? "Was sup?!" the General asks in a bubbly tone! The doctor shook his head "They haven't told you yet... The archdemon Mira probably told you about: is waking right now!"

-To Be Continued...-

 


 

Asura


-Continued...-

The General, Frank and Lys enter the castle dungeon... In the lobby: meet up with Charles, Bethany, Moni and two other soldiers... "Here's the plan: I sense the mana of both 2 witches and a demon. One witch is in front of us, the other's heading to the Archdemon with a sacrifice, probably.. and the demon's in the middle... The witches should know we're coming, so be prepared to fight to let each-other by..." Frank explains. A psychic raises her hand: "What about us planning it so that I alone can get to the demon? I can try a exorcism then.", Charles then explains: "We can't risk you going by yourself, Serene. Archdemons usually can't be exorcised anyway... Sealing or killing are the only routes for this.". Another soldier raises her hand "Alright, then we're killing everybody before they reach the demon?", Frank replies "Yes, Touka, hopefully: Then I'll reseal it, as the General STILL doesn't know any magic..".. The General rolls their eyes, until Moni nuzzles up against their armour: "I still think you're SMART AND  CUTE, General sir!!". The General replies "What are you doing, Lieutenant?", Bethany snatches her away "Yeah, at a time like this!?". She giggles sheepishly at her sister, Frank then says: "Enough wasting time, let's hurry!".

Minutes later, the group runs into a slim figure in the dark... "I see, so you HAVE sensed it...".. Everybody stops suddenly, Frank replies "Madoka??!". Cackling an be heard, she then says "Quite right, I stayed with this army since the beginning, to find a  living Archdemon. And you won't stop me!!!" she yells, many glowing-fling snakes suddenly leaps at them!!! The soldiers easily dodge and get past the witch, except the General who is somewhat looking for Lys... "Dammit..."... and doesn't notice a snake coming over... until Frank steps on it, and attacked Madoka in the same instant! The General keeps going, until they find a lit up room??

"What the hell???" the General wonders out-loud... then notices the child watching... "Fuck no.." The General says... Then also notices Lys from the corner of their eye: "Cadet!!? You made it?!". Lys wryly replies "Yes sir! Um... I was trying to follow you out, but you're wearing all black and was in a dark room, so...". The General laughed "So that's why I couldn't find ya, you were right behind me!", the General then concentrates on the child: "But for right now, I'm more worried about you: What's your name, kid?!". The child glares.... "Kuroh..." it answers... The General smirked "I'm the General of the Legion-of-Rebels! But you didn't even ask for my name, did ya?". Before the child can answer, the General quickly punched it's face!!! Black blood sprays everywhere as the child falls backwards, it then backflipped away and bring down it's blade: "You're GOnna GeT it: BaSTARD!!!!!" it shouts as a sword beam rises up from the floor!!! Lys watches in terror as the General brings down the Glam, and dispersed it easily (unlike months ago) "Heh! Now I got a trick for ya!" The General laughed and suddenly rushes the child!!!  Kuroh can't react in time as the General chants: "dnilB eb  t'now I os ,dniM ym nepo doG raeD!!!" and pushes into it's mind!!! Lys shudders at the site of the General's hand magically going into Kuroh's head, until the General calls out: "Lys, come grab my hand!  So I won't get stuck in crazy town!!!!". The Cadet rushes to the General's side as the latter goes in so far, that their hand is left out! Lys grabs it and pulls HARD!!!

Meanwhile, inside the dimension between worlds: The General is able to see their own, Kuroh's, Lys' and everybodyelse's souls through the veil! Then reaches towards Kuroh's: a vison of a beach appears after that... With Kuroh as a child, sitting alone... "It's safer like this, behind my own hair... behind the demon: I'll never have to.." the child thought, until they're interrupted by the General!!! Kuroh's picked up and taken away: "C'mon kid! It's easier not being a murderer, alright??! Nomatter what: Trust me, it's somethin' you DON'T wanna keep doing!" the child stares at the General as they're brought out of the demon's control!

Meanwhile: outside of the dimension, Lys is knocked back via magic light, when the General contacted Kuroh's soul. And has been fighting violently since.. But now stops, and shuddered strenuously... and says "Da.. dammit! Look!" ! Lys looks at Kuroh: the child's kneeling on the floor... crying deeply... The Cadet walks to them: "Are they OK, too?... neither of you had pupils in your eyes..", the General shivered and replied "Fuck, but yeah Cadet: they're OK, too.." then kneels by Kuroh... "Take care of the kid... make sure they don't get ganked like this: this'll be better than fighting the last witch or that demon if it come back...". The General stand again as Lys kneels... "It's up to you, Cadet: and don't worry, I think I exorcised the demon. Kuroh here thought it was just easier to let it do whatever it wanted, but she listened to me easily..." the General says before rushing away...

 

Nearly a hour later, he General catches up to the others: they're injured horribly and a long ribbon can be seen ascending off the floor and through the ceiling!!!? "SHIT!!!!" the General yells and leaps to grab the streamer... "Is this skin!!!?" they notice as they're dragged up into the streets of Lyonesse!!! People start screaming and shouting, as the Asura hovered over the kingdom!!! The General's shaken off  into the streets and goes unconscious  upon crashing through a food-stand!! The Asura then looks westward, until he hears  Gabriel "Archdemon... If you're hear: I can assume my friends attempts to seal you peacefully, have failed, And father sees firsthand what he was worshipping! Leaving me the last to stop you!", the Archdemon turns towards him as the king and others stare in horror at the monster floating in the air! The prince brandishes his blade and fires a beam through the archdemon!!! He falls to the ground, but gets up quickly... "I have been skinned alive, beaten and left to rot for 800 years, with only baby's guts to keep me sane: you think ANYTHING will stop me?".. The Asura rises up and says: "I haven't rose form a Asura to a Archdemon to simply be tortured by a bunch of bitches!!!!", then flies into the prince with his hands together like a blade!!!  Gabriel tried to defend, but his blade's shattered and he himself knocked to the floor as the Asura flies off into the distance... "We shall NEVER meet again!!!!" he screamed!!!

After regrouping and at very least finding the murder of Madoka at the hands of Frank: The army now follows the demon: a swath of havoc can be found near all civilization they pass...  Witches, wizards and many other magical beings also hamper their progress. Fortunately Both Mira and the psychic are able to keep fending off the creatures' magic, until the army can fight them in hand to hand combat. 

 

3-21-XXXX

The Legion of rebels have made it through a tough winter, and now are on break in Achaea. During a exercise: it starts raining HEAVILY, making the mountainous region dangerous to traverse. The General and Lys both end up taking cover in a cave during this... "Dammit... we're both soaked..." the General growls "With this cold front, we're probably gonna catch shit...". The General starts to take off the armour and says "C'mon, we can't have a sick soldier, can we?".. Lys sighs in annoyance and takes off his armour too, the 2 now sit back to back as the rain pours harder outside... Out of curiosity, Lys turns to look at the General: they're REALLY slender-muscled as compared to how the armor makes them look buffed.. "Uh..." he quietly starts.. but turns away. The General replies "What is it, cadet?", Lys replies in fear "N, nothing... I just thought I saw something..". The General turns around "Me? I can see all kinds of shit: or I wouldn't be alive now: what's wrong?", Lys looks over his shoulder again and realizes aloud "You're a girl?...". She replies "Yeah, gotta problem with that?", he turns back around "N, no ma'am..." he replied... Lys then wonders "Then why do they call you 'sir'?", the general turns away, too "Because I apparently look and sound like a guy? It happened so much, I stopped caring to say anythin'... I understand I'm buffed lookin' but I guess screaming your entire goddamn childhood would make ya sound gravelly...". She notices Lys looking over his shoulder again.. and says: "Checkin' me out, ya creep?", Lys turns around "N, no s, sir... I mean, ma'am!!". The General turns him back around and smirks "Eyes up here... Ha, ya remind me of my bastard of a ol' man!", she then kissed him!!! Lys' eyes widened as she back away "G, general..!", she laughed again "What?! Does my breath taste like ass??!". He replies with a laugh "N, no...! Its just... This might sound stupid but... that was my first kiss.. um, can I at least know your name?", …..She awes for a second... "Cassiopeia A..." she replies in a calm tone... "What's your full name, then?". Lyse is still in awe at hearing hers, then suddenly replied "Lys Crystal!". Cassiopeia laughs again "Ha! It sounds pretty as hell!". He replies "Yours sounds so pretty, too... Um.."... She looks away "Look, don't go sayin' it everywhere, alright?!", Lys replied "Yes ma'am... 'Cassi'...". She smirks slightly "Damn.. ya really like how it sounds, freak?", she seems as if she was going to kiss him again, when sunlight shown on them!!! The two look out, and put back on their clothes...

Minutes later, they and the other soldiers meet back up at their camp: when they hear more 'rain'...

                       -Everybody looks up to see black blood pouring from the sky!!-


Black Paper Moon

  -Black Blood suddenly surounds the army QUICKLY!!!-

A Black 'Moon' surrounds the Legion Of Rebels, Prata tightens his grip on his sickle "What the hell's going' on!?"... Elliot replied "Monsters!! It has to be! But... how're they doing this!!!? Where's all this demon blood pouring from!!?"... Kilik glared "I don't know, but be ready to kick some ass..."... The ground suddnly opens up into eyes!!! This trips everybody there, the eyes themselves seem as if they're using the grass for eyelashes and are the texture of rubber and animal fat... Suddenly, the stones open into eyes: revealing Arcdemons: A gaint, naked redhead with horns and batwings, steps out of one! A fat man with glasses oozed from a eye, too... A huge penis wriggled from one! A vampire steps out of a eye... The Asura then drips out of a eye opened in the 'sky' over them: "Hellooooooo my hos!!!" he laughs!!!The soldiers and villagers all look around and murmur in fear, until he screamed: QUIET!!!!! I'm talking!!!!!!! Now, despite everything: we have a offer to make! First of all, I'm Mikhail a ascended Asura. And One that needs your help! Tell 'em why, Ivo!". The fatman grunts loudly and says "Yeah! We need you humans: see? Hell's overcrowded and with the Earth as is... we figured we can take it instead? Right Ann?"... The naked lady replies: "Right, you see: There's SO many of you humans and lower-demons in hall: it's become overcrowded, so we're taking earth and offereing prizes for people who listens to our temptaions. Including our latest and greatest offer! Filling in our rankings!"... the army and villagers all stare in shock, awe and surprise as she continues "See? A few of ours have been brought down by some... 'ecentric' people, and we just want to replace the empty slots! There's room for... 2 more!". Mikhail laughs "Took ya a lil' long there, girl! Now: who's gonna become a Archdemon? You'll ascend from human, troll, goblin Elf... whatever you are, to this! Most of my friends here were human, and like only a few were demon before... Anybody can be evil, anybody can be a archdemon! All ya gotta do is let it happen!" The humans all look at eachother... murmuring starts over the army... "Who's it gonna be!!!?" Mikhail asks as he smiled uncontrollably!!! Cassiopiea yells "We can't go along with this bullshit! We hafta kill 'em!!!", Mira replies "How General???! We're trapped! I can't see pass the blood!!"... Serene adds "We'll have to...." she cut off by a familiar voice "I'll join you."  Gabriel says as he steps forward... The Asura laughed "Oh ho, I expected to see you again! I meant I'd never see you dad, but you!! HA! I see a eye of a true alpha male, a leader! The strongest of the strong! A role model, a hard worker, someone who demands respect!", the prince scoffed, until Ann informed him: "All you must do, is say you'd sacrifice everyone to become one of us. Then the feast may begin!". The General stares at her partner "What the hell are you doing!!!!????", he turns toward her "Something I should've done before: I've wanted the entire continent to myself, but settled for just taking my own kingdom: now... I can have it all..." he thought... Then says as she ran to him "I sacrifice every single human being under my rule: everyone that followed until now.". Tentacles suddenly wrap around him!!! Cassiopiea stops as she suddenly hear a loud yell: "Now we can begin the feast!!!" Ann shouted!!! Lasers suddenly zooms up from the eyes!! Everybody's struck with a mark bearing: three 6s, interlocked with each other! Demons start pooling from the eyes in the ground and from the rocks!!! Huge ones reshape the terrafirma and slides many into giant pits of demons, all hungrily waiting!!

Many tentacles obviously go after the nearest females, raping most to death! All warriors obviously fight back, but the unnatural and unpredictable attacks, cause them to be killed and eaten! Bethany and Moni holds each others hands as they feel, tentacles in every hole in their bodies, until they wiggle through their eye sockets! This is seen by Xoro and Charles, who's trying to fight their way to them, but... the latter's taken away by another demon, as Xoro laughed maniacally "So what?! You'll never take the almighty XORO!!! I'm a superhuman, I'm a god!! You can't take me on!" he shouted as he fought, until he's tripped by a tentacle, the slight instant allowed the demons to wrap all his limbs then slowly but surely tear him open and eat out his intestines in front of him as he screamed.... Meanwhile, Kilik laughed nervously as he watched Lys trying to run "Punk ass bitch, I can use him distract that guy over there..." he thought as sees a single eye watching Lys run.... It then suddenly turns towards Kilik "I HEARD you!!!" it screamed and opens into a mouth, a tongue quickly shoots out, and pulls him inside it! The demon chewed slowly to hear the screaming... Lys hears that too, and ran in the opposite direction, until he's suddenly grabbed by another soldier!!!? He turns to see a girl leading him away... "Wh... who are...?" he starts.. She replies: "Lance corporal: Mein, Cadet!" she says "I'm going to get you out if possible!". Lys speeds up to match hers, she let's go of his hand and brandishes her blade to kill the oncoming demons! "Thanks..." he Lys says, she replies "Don't. It's mostly because you could be a way out: see, I figured we're in covered in Black blood, about Paper thin, and in a Moon shape. If we can get through any of the walls, the wavelength in here: 'madness',  won't block the seal on your forehead: it's covered now, but I just noticed you have the potential to save us!"... Lys wonders at what she meant: then remembers how he was hit back in Lyonesse when he was with Cassiopiea! Lys smiles slightly at the hope she gave him, when Mein herself's suddenly stabbed from behind!!!? Lys turns to see a eye with limbs walking towards them! He tries to pick up the Corporal until she yells softly "G, go... y, you're the... save... em…" she dies in his arms, Lys then lies her down and tries to run, but is snatched up by a overhead demon! he yells in pain as he's carried away by his leg!

 

meanwhile: Cassiopiea is one of the many who fell into a chasm, but she stabbed her Glam through a eye and climbed up! She ran to the now translucent-tentacles and sees Gabriel inside: blood of the fallen/sacrificed are being pumped into his body.... The general angrily tries to slice the tentacles, but shatters her Glam!! "FUCK IT!!!!" she yells, Ann laughs at her "What's wrong? He did what he wanted: You knew him for years, but he never told you the full extent of his heart, so why do you believe he ONLY wanted his own kingdom? Why even go so far as to take civilians, too? He wanted it all!". Cassiopiea almost cursed her out, when more demons arrive! She instead zooms through the legions, destroying them with only half a blade!!! None were able to stand up to her, even the tentacles, of which one shifted at her back, she quickly turned and sliced it in half! Others grab her arms and legs, but through sheer anger, she ripped them up from the demons they belonged too and continues her rampage... Until she hears..

"He's reborn!!!" from the Archdemons!... The General turns to see Gabriel standing again: he radiates beauty, but has large contrastly dark-batwings, and a black beak in his mouth! His pointed tail also wriggles evilly, as he smirked at her.... The legions start chanting "Main course, main course!", as Ann now announced "And for our new brother: Gabriel the Greed! We offer this specimen: it seems as from chance, he has a magic gate opened up in his mind. Humans use 10% of their brains, but this bony thing's have something undone that I've never seen in another human before! His heart shall be a perfect sacrifice for our brethren!". Cassiopiea looks up to see the 'sacrifice': Lys is unconscious from being dragged to the area, and lifted up over the tentacles and towards Gabriel!!! She glares as the cadet's limbs are all bound and the prince raises his tail to rip his heart out!!! Cassipoiea suddenly rushes to him, the demons notice and break their trances to stop her!!! Lys suddenly wakes up from the piercing pain of the Archdemon's tail "AAAAAH!" he yells, as the general starts ripping through the legion and comes closer and closer to the soldier, until a demon shaped as the upper-part of a mouth: drops on her! The teeth keeps her from going forward, as well as tons of weight! She shakes the teeth as Lys passes out again from the pain, until she hears a loud whinnying!!! 

Everyone looks up to see the skeletal rider leaping towards Lys, he cuts off Gabriel's tail and the tentacles, grabbing the teen, and splitting the mouth-demon in half, grabbing the overly-exerted/fainted general too! The rider's FAR too fast to be caught as he runs out of the 'Moon' and towards a onlooking soldier!!! "Take them to a hollowed area..." the rider booms... The soldier shudders in fear "S, si!!!" he agrees.... He drops the fainted soldiers on the ground and rides away... The left over soldier goes to get help from the nearby village...

Neither Cassiopiea nor Lys wakes up for a month....

End Soul Eating Arc



Berserker Arc

      5-11-XXX!

Months after the 'Black Moon' 3 surviving members of the Legion of Rebels art living peacefully in  Achaea, within a small cabin/forge hidden on a mountain path... Cassiopeia wakes up one morning, wrapped in bandages and on a wood table... "Fuck..." she says as she sat up.. The soldier who took both her and Lys there, sits up from his chair! "Aye carumba! You're awake!" he says, she looks at the soldier "Another cadet?? I think I remember you...". He stands and salutes: "I'm cadet: Keel Cero of the Legion of rebels, sir! I mean, ma'am!"... She gets off the table "Forget that crap... There isn't a fucking army anymore...", he ran to her "Wait General, ma'am: your wounds aren't fully healed! You've been out for a while, but you still gotta few open injuries!". Cassi sighs at him "I'm not gonna get into a fight RIGHT now... I jus' wanna see where I am!", he salutes and reports "We're still in  Achaea, in Kato... Well, on the outskirts.. in a blacksmith's home, ma'am!", she replies "Cool...". Cassi then looks back down at the boy "Where's the other cadet? The one with the strange looking 'fro?", Keel starts to walk away "Over here, General! He's alive..." he starts... She follows him to a opened part of the home: there, Lys' standing under a waterfall in only long-Tshirt… A girl stands ways away from him, strangely watching him carefully… "Silvia, she woke up!" Keel announced.. The girl stood too "Wait, she should still be in bed!". Cassi rolled her eyes "I ain't made of paper..." she says, then calls out "Lys, how long you been up!?"... He turns towards her... it's then she saw: his hair's dangling around his eyes... his forehead still has the mark on it, and he doesn't recognize her... "??" Lys only watches her.. She steps closer to him... "Cadet???" she asks.. He eyes her up and down... and slowly rubs his hands up her body... Silvia suddenly yells "Stop that!" he jumps back as Cassi replies to her "What's wrong with him?!". Keel sadly explained.. "Um.. I think he's been infected with something.. when I found you dos, you were in this BIIIG black moon thing, and someone had pulled you out... I guess it was a good thing I was late to  get back to camp..".. Cassi sighs "So that's how come he's doing that...": Lys' feeling her up again... Sylvia ran to him "Stop it, ya creep!!!", Lys jumps back from her and curls up on a rock... Cassi sighs again "Alright, I'm going... can't even talk to the ONE cadet I hired specifically..."... Keel yells "Wait!!! Your injuries!".. She rolled her eyes again "I had worse! I just need some air!"... The General stomps away from the children and heads to the only other way out of the home... "Wait.." a deeper voice bellows from in the cabin.. She turns to see a old-buffed man "The kids said ya gonna open up again, ya really goin' out that way?", Keel and Silvia run up in front of him "Yeah, you hafta rest a least another 2 weeks!" the other Cadet warns! Cassi sighs "Look, I need to go... it's important!", Keel replied "What's more important than recouperating and gettin' back to full health!!?". The General smirks "Revenge!!! Revenge on that bastard who betrayed our army! Everybody listened to him. Everybody supported him! When he told me about his dickhead-dad, I understood having one! When he told others, they chose to help him stop that Archdemon! But he joined THEM in the end!!!  I have to kill him, for the army and before those demons get all the people they want for the shit team!!!"... the group stares in awe at what she said... until Keel replies "Look.. General, I understand.. But I never wanted revenge. Whatever those demons are doing, probably won't happen in our lifetime: it's taken them forever just to do that, as compared to how long the world's been like this..  Instead, live with us: Me, Silvia and Mr Oden here... we happen to all have the same interests, we could build something new from just this... Maybe we can even find a cure for Lys! So... what do you say?".... Cassi watches them... then looks away... "Sorry... I have to do this: or the only Cadet who doesn't have a say in his fate now..."... Keel realizes that while the others are dead, and even IF she forgave the prince: a after affect's on Lys who's unable to decide if this is what he wanted, too... The General walks away... as they watched...

 

6-1-XXX!

 

Cassi walks through the woods far off from the cabin... She thought back on the last moments her and Lys spent together.. "Fuck... I liked that... for a second, I felt like I was in complete control... and that Cadet was gonna give it to me.. Dammit... maybe I really am fucked up, besides wanting to get revenge, I really want Lys to be himself and say my..." she suddenly hears tinkling ear her head!!? The General suddenly turns to see a fairy!!!? "What the actual fucking hell??!!!" she asks... he replies "Whoa.... I thought you were a lady? At lest that's what I sensed...". Cassi turns away "Dammit... fuck off, you... thing?" she somewhat questions. He flies in front of her "I'mma Fairy! What else would I be with the wings and sparkles!?", she replied somewhat apologetically "I never saw the difference between you, spites and the um... other things...". He sighed in annoyance then replied "Now ya know, I'mma fairy! The other things don't look like I do!", she walks away "Cool, and neat and Awesome..." she replies laconically... He hovers behind the General as he informs "Wait, I'm Kai! What's your name!?". Cassi looks up "....They call me general..." she's unable to introduce herself to him... as it wasn't the same without Lys... He replies "That's strange... I guess you're shy?!", she looks forward again "Why're you following me??" she asks... The fairy explains "My old friend, died... so I was lookin' for a new suitable partner! And you're it!". Cassi shuddered "What if I don't want a fairy?!" she asks in annoyance... he hovers in front of her "Then I'll be here unless you drive me away! Fairies like humans!", Cassi rolled her eyes "Sure you do... Just don't mess with me, and you can follow...". Kai cheers "Yay!!! I can't wait to see what you'll do..", Cassi now ignores him as she heads back to the cottage...

6-20-XXX!

 

The General arrives back at the cottage and sees Silvia picking fruit from the orchard ways away from the building... Cassi approaches her "Silvia, right?" she asks... the girl jumps as she turns around "Ah!! Wait… it's just you...".  The General sighed and says "You were worried I was gonna die or shit before, now ya sound like my bastard uncles...", the girl apologizes "I didn't mean it like that, it's just that it could've been a monster or worse...". Cassi turns away "Forget it, I'm jus' here to get Lys an' go... Keel already said he wanna stay here, so.." she trails off as she walked away... Silvia shudders at hearing this and follows "Um... Gen, general..." she starts. By now, Cassi knocks on the door... Keel opens up and sees her! "General, ma'am!" he starts in shock! She then notices the fearful look on his and Silvia's faces.. "What the fuck happened??" she asks. Keel replies "Um... Lys' gone, he wondered off...", the general grabs his collar "And you didn't look for him!? You still acted like a soldier, even though ya basically quit! So ya couldn't search for a retard for at least a second!?". Silvia yells "It was my fault! Not Keel's! I took Lys out and he wondered away when my back was turned, by the time I got back to tell  Keel, it was already night: no matter where he searched he couldn't find him!"... the General lets go of him and turned away "I'm goin'... hopefully the guy's not already dead an' this ain't some wild goose chase..", Keel suddenly yells "W, wait! At least rest?!" his plea starts to come out softer,  as he realizes what he was saying… Cassi almost replies, when Oden came to the doorway "What the kid means is ya gonna need armour and a actual weapon if ya goin' back out: which he and I made while you were gone. It's based off yer old shit, so it fits and crap...". The general looks over her shoulder...

Minutes later, she changed out of her tattered bandages and into new armour, broadsword and arm canon... "Alright, consider this your last service to the Legion of Rebels: live peacefully... Because our 'fearless leader' betrayed us, and I find Lys...  I'm getting revenge..." she warns Keel before she leaves...
 


Holysee

7-20-XXX!

Thusly, Cassi searches the area for Lys and is somewhat careful not to leave West Achaea.... Meanwhile: the Holy roman Army hast been mobilized due to the Legion of Rebels' appearance in Lyonesse. The king hast the army for the release of Mikhail and all those who hide behind the name of God, hast eagerly searched for the army and wants nothing more than to crush all soldiers 'in the name of God'! Verily, verily: they hast found their last location through reason of the civilians, villagers have seen and talked to them and are innocent to what the Holy Army wants with them, so they easily track their footsteps and finds the lake of blood and bodies... This ominous sight serves as a sign for them: Whatever god the Legion of Rebels served, hast betrayed them. Or  whatever power they have is terrible, and there may be a survivor who betrayed his men, for betrayal gives great power unto him who sacrifices those who beloved him... So they now search for one with similar: armour, insignia and characteristics to the clues they collected on the leaders of the army, at least... One with beautiful skin, gorgeous complexion who looks and acts like a prince, and the one with soulless, cold eyes, always in full armour who spoke and acted like murderous old man...

The army nears it's goal as their leader gallantly rides atop a unicorn "Metropolitan. Deman,  when we close in on the man, what shall we do?" a veteran asks "For one  thing, we are ordered to capture the rouge because of the lake of blood we've found: but if it's someone who survived even THAT: should we not take them down before they cause this again? For all we know, this devil could've raised the or joined the army for the soul purpose of killing them all!". She replies "No soldier, even if we're risking our lives: it is our duty to as the pope ordered. How would we know if that's truly going on, unless we interrogate him ourselves?", the veteran stares at her in concern.. then turns towards her bodyguard: "Then you, Reiner: you're like a advisor to our blessed leader, please convince her that this could be catastrophic for our men.." he says.. The paladin replied "Heheh... Sorry man, but we gotta follow the pope's orders! Even if we don't wanna get a buncha people killed, we have no choice or we're killed... Then they'd probably send in someone who'd do worse to them.." he smiles wryly... The veteran looks away...

Meanwhile: a mile ahead, Cassi sat on a grassy slope and watches a village.. Fairies can be seen flying to and fro from it... "So you shits are everywhere?" she asks.. Kai replies "Yeah! Hey... Nevermind, we're actually all around the world, except in more dangerous areas! Since you were around that forge, we could run into each other!". She gets up and leaves... "Alright, I looked at your  crap. I gotta get goin'..", he flies in front of her "STOP!!! The reason I begged you to stop is because you've been moving day and night; you hafta rest at some point!". Cassi sighed in annoyance "I do alot! And every moment I am, is wasted time... That Cadet could be dead by now!", the fairy grabs her shoulder as she continues walking "C'mon, you've also been fighting monsters, you won't do any good in a fight against something intelligent, if you keep pushing yourself!". The general stops in a marsh then looks over her shoulder "Stop screeching in my ear! Seriously, if something WAS comin' I wouldn't be able to hear it!!!!", they both suddenly hear hoof-steps.. then looks up to see Merry and her platoon "Shit..." Cassi says quietly.. The Metropolitan then asks "Sir, are you the of the Legion of Rebels? Do not lie.", the General shrugs "I was...". Murmuring rises around the platoon as Merry then asks "Then you've survived what fate has befallen it? It would seem you'd be out to avenge your fallen comrades, correct?".. Cassi replies "Yeah... I was gonna do that...", the Metropolitan then orders: "Good, then you wouldn't mind coming with us? we may be able to help you in your endeavor..", the General walked away "We were on tha same page until then, I work alone now... ". Merry glares "You'd stop now, while you're being questioned...", Cassi replies "And you'll stop tryna trap me here, I jus' told you I'm out for revenge, right?". All the paladins suddenly surround her!.. Except Reiner...  "Capture him, so we can further question the cur." Merry orders, the men all aim their spears and blades at the General... "Shouldn't we just go in with them?" Kai asks, Cassi scoffs "Fuck no... These jackasses are tryna make me go wit' 'em! It's almost like they think they're lettin' me live and they're doin; me a favor by NOT tryna kill me!". They all charged her, Merry yells "W, wait! We're suppose to capture him ali..." she abruptly stops as they're all cut in half via a spin attack!! Cassi then glares at her and thought: "If I can capture that bitch, they'd all back down, right??" then rushes pass the men, easily chopping through them or straight up punching their faces in!! Until Merry shakes out of utter fear and quickly lifts her blade, and strikes through a slight crack in the General's armour... She fell and Kai hides as the paladins hovered over her...

Minutes later: Cassi awakes to being wrapped only in bandages again and in handcuffs... Some paladins are watching her as others try to look away... "Damn these fucks..." she thought as she's lead away...

7-24-XXX!

Verily, the army enters into Kalvaryta and unto their camp surrounding the base of Erymanthos. There: they give the General unto the Merry and in her tent, until they receive further orders from their leader. The Metropolitan then has her tied to a post and orders for the others to leave..
 




 

On the night Cassi was taken unto a Holy Roman Empire base: the Metropolitan has her tied and brandishes a whip towards her "I never thought that the evilest of evil was indeed but a girl  who seems to be younger, in fact. I question you before at range, because I wanted to do this peacefully... but.." Merry starts "You killed several of my men and came at me: this proves you not only joined a rebellious army, but have murdered the all, and for what reason!?". The General replies "What?? Wait: You really thought I joined a army and killed everyone in it for fun!? That shit's hard work, why the fuck would I do that??!".. the Metropolitan glared "Because you're the type of sick monster who'd do that! It's happened before: Magic users join a army or village, just to destroy everybody who trusted them! And you're the type who'd do such a thing!", Cassi yells "You stupid bitch!! Listen to what the fuck you're sayin'!!! Do I look like someone who'd do somethin' that bullshit fucked up!!? You got your priorities wrong, you freaking dumbass!!". Merry whips her face!!! "DON'T YOU DARE SAY THAT TO ME! I'm the interrogator too, you don't get to ask anything!", the General smiles and replied "Fine, then one more question: I saw the crosses and shit around here, so I assume I'm inna nother 'Holy' place.. Does your God want you to do this bullshit!? Ya already undressed me, I know some of 'em paladins did some shady crap while I wassa sleep, and now ya interrogatin' me on somethin' you didn't even know I did or not.. You're doin' alotta hard work, but for what reason? Does God want ya ta beat half-naked people that were mindin' their own business!?". Merry angrily starts beating her with the whip, as Kai watched "You could've avoided that... she was listening to everything you said..." he quietly says... The metropolitan strikes her once more in rage, then huffed heavily from the exertion... Cassi watches as she licks her own blood off her face and says "Damn you're all red, I didn't think you were gettin' off on this!", Merry almost strikes again, when a small number of paladin and the veteran comes in the tent... He stares at the bloodied girl: "M, Ms... what did you do? We were only to question the prisoner and take her to the HolySee for further examination..", the woman replies: "It's fine! I have jurisdiction over her as long as she's in my hands! ...". She then turned away from him "But I got nothing... take her away..", the veteran repeats her order: "Yes, put in her in chains this time."...

 

At 11:03, the General's in shackles and in a cage.. as the paladins go to sleep in their tents. Cassi glares into the sky "Fuck it.. armorless, weaponless and chained inside a cage.. Meanwhile, Lys' probably dead at a monster's feet by now... Not to mention there's a bastard skippin' around somewhere who needs to be chopped up and fed up a hippo's ass!!!" she thought angrily shakes the cage!!! Kai flies to her as she huffs in anger.. "Hey, I gotcha somethin'!" he says, she glared at him "What???". Kai smiles fearfully "Aw come on, don't look like that! I gotcha  way out!", he starts unlocking the cage as she smirked "Looks like you're not justa naked idiot!". She leaps out and snaps the chains off "I didn't have enough room ta move in there, but now it should be easy to get my shit back!" she says eagerly! Kai awed at how quickly she rushes around the camp, without making a sound... until she heads back to Merry's tent: Inside are Cassi's armour and weapons, which were searched through.. and the Metropolitan herself... Naked as she whipped her own body!? Cassi stares "Damn religion fucks you up...", Kai agrees "Yeah... why do anything if you're gonna be punished for nearly everything you do!?". The General sneaks up behind her and takes her and knocks the woman out.. Minutes later: Cassi's back in full armour and has bound Merry up, a paladin suddenly came into the tent "Ms Deman, the prisoner escae...!!!!!" he's punched in the teeth as Cassi drags Merry out! The woman starts to wake up as the General sets fire to most of their horses and takes the only calm one and rides away! fires spread through the camp causing most of the paladins to try to put them out and/or search for the Metropolitan!!! Only Reiner sees Cassi carrying her off and takes a horse after them!!

 

Midnight: Cassi spurs the horse to go faster and faster as Merry yells "Put me down!! You daft whore! You'll burn for this!", the General replied "I'm sure I might... I killed so many I'm actually waiting for it!". She then lowers Merry to the sharp rocks below: "So... I'm ready to shred your face open if ya don't shut up: I only needed a hostage and even then, your men were too damned stupid to find me!", Kai hurries down to Merry: "She didn't mean that! She's just on edge because of something... she won't tell me about!". The woman bites at him, he then flies back over Cassi's head "I don't think she likes either of us!", the General replies "That's why I'm leaving her there!". They finally make it to a empty mansion... the horse collapses by then, and the girls fall to the ground.. Cassi quickly staggers up as a pack of wild dogs arrive... "Shit... they're guard dogs or somethin'?! she asks... Merry leans up on her knees, and is shocked by the dogs' eyes suddenly getting a ungodly glow in them.. they then chant: "FeaSt, FEAst, FEaSt!!"... The General glared "What the fuck???!" she asks, Kai explains: "Not all the monsters you killed were actual normal stuff, most were demon possessed earthlings.. That mark on the back of your neck's still causing the feast to 'go on' for the demons of hell!". Cassi smirks "So these fucks wanna eat!? Come on: I'll give ya somethin' ta eat!!!!" she rushes the hellhounds and easily mows through the pack!! Merry meanwhile, tries to run.. "Let me mount you!" she yells to the fainted horse.. it suddenly turned around "No!!!" it says with glowing-demonic eyes "I'll mount you!". It leaps upon her and licks profusely, until Cassi's broadsword chops it's head off!! The woman turns towards the General in fear as Cassi says: "Stay by me, tonight..." in a strangely un-sarcastic tone...

4:00 AM, Cassi steps on the last dog's head... as Reiner finally arrives, with blood splattered all over him: Indicating he ran into monsters along the way.. Merry quickly ran to him "Reiner!! Kill her!!!" she says angrily! The paladin replies "Yeah, that's the punishment for her first crime.. But ya askin' me to kill a little girl! I mean, come one... she can't be more than...". The Metropolitan cuts him off "I don't care! She tried to saw open my face!!!", Reiner sighs... "Alright, that's wrong, true! But I don't think I can? She's a Superfreak!". The woman sneered at him and walks to his horse... Reiner jogs to Cassi.. "Um... While you DD kidnap her, she's safe an' shit from monsters, so... I wanted to thank ya for helpin' my boss lady! She's really kinda stressed out so she can be much to deal with!" he says... The General replies "I don't give a shit... She didn't get in the way, so she's fine... that's all it was...". He laughs, Cassi kinda does too... until he sliced at the General, Cassi waves her broadsword back: Reiner just barely leaps over it and jogs away "Sorry 'bout that: killin' ya was a order, so...". Cassi laughs "What the hell??? That was shit was dumb as fuck!".. the people split apart...

Reiner explains that Cassi got away by the time he caught up her, Merry agrees as he DID let her get away without even trying to fight... And the platoon was ordered to return to the nearby Vatican to receive new mission orders.. Meanwhile: Cassi has ran for weeks on end, falling asleep at random... One night, she falls asleep.. but is awaken by a whinnying!! She stands to see the skeletal horseman standing a few feet away!  "Who the fuck are you?!" Cassi yelled.. the rider replied: "The one who saved thou  and thy Cadet's life. Thou fainted before thou couldest reach him, verily: I hast watched thy army until then, and could only save thee and him from being feasted on by the demons and Archdemons..".. The General stares "Oh shit.. Then what're ya doin' here now?!", the rider replies... "I come to warn thee: thou must head due East of hear and unto the holy land. For their, thou shalt find what thy seek: There also shalt come a time where thou shalt come upon the lack Moon again, and thy shalt need to save but one... For thou cannot save Earth, neither any living being but thou and another.."... Cassi wondered at what he said and asks "What the hell are ya talkin' about!!?", he turns away "Thou shalt know before time... and shalt find the 'him' verily, I sense it..." he rides away! ...Kai looks at her "Do you know who that is?!", she replies "No... I saw 'em before, but this is the first time we spoke...".

After the Holy Roman platoon returned from the vatican, they were put en route to the Holy City, with a  pope in tow. Because of how this happened and the latter's actions before tis: the escort was necessary to even arrive safely.. monsters or no... Reiner sighs as he and Merry ride horses in front of a slow-driving limo around a mountain side... Many people can be seen watching in curiosity and mostly disgust... The Paladin spoke quietly to the veteran "Damn... Merry didn't need all this extra pressure! I mean, we CAN'T catch the last rebel.. they didn't need to put more pressure on her by doing this!", the veteran replies "Yes, I agree that breaking one's spirit and sending them on another grueling mission is a bit much: but she must endure to be able to become the figure she needs to be.". Reiner frowns as he looks at his own horse: "I understand, but she's not even cut out for this... she was better in the Vatican.. Then they just chose her almost at random: she's being treated like a object more than someone who already had it horrific enough... she still has nightmares about her kidnapping, too.."... Merry meanwhile IS currently trying to shake the demonic-night out of her head.. until she starts hearing yells and screams! The entire platoon stops with her and looks up to see a small army of rebels! They fire arrows and bullets at the small army, a few paladins fire back: with the projectiles mostly bouncing off their armor! Reiner immediately stands in front of Merry as the attack happened, a handful of rebels break through their defenses and easily kill the men then break into the limo! Their bodies fly out, crumpled up and shredded!!? Merry has rushed around to the side of the limo by now "What the???!" she starts... the Pope exits the limo "I have my own personal-bodyguards with me at all times, do not fear my child." he explains as several hooded men step out with him...  He then glares down at the remaining rebels "What should we do to you, for your crimes against me and God Himself?"... the rebel staggers up a little (due to his crippling injuries) and says "What should be done to you!!!? Burning away our homes and families to build another goddamned church is the most retarded thing I ever...". The pope smashed him over the head with a bible and orders: "Give these men the wheel, we'll have to make a example out of those who plot against God.". The men are then tied up and twisted into pieces... one tries to get away and trips onto the ground, he looks up and pleads: "Don't let them take me! C'mon!! Can't you see this'..." a paladin snatched him away!  "Come on, pussy! Can't take what ya dished out!?", another one looks at the person he was pleading too: "Should we take him, too!? He acted as if he knew him!". Lys only stares in awe.. unable to understand what was happening, until a woman grabs his arm "He has nothing to do with this! He's just a bystander, too!" she explains... The paladin watched... then left "Guess she's right: the retard can't even understand where it is...". The woman then pulls him away: "Come on, ya nut... Someone messed up as you doesn't need to be out in the open..."....

Meanwhile, in a village several miles from the Holy city... A girl sits at a bar table, surrounded by bodies.. "Another messed up place... I wish there was one single village that wasn't over run with looters or monsters..." she thought as she ate.. until a group of Vikings smashed through the door "Here we are, there's dolly right thar!" one yells... The girl doesn't look at them as they stomp over the dead bodies to get to her table: "And issa girl, too! She ain't got no breasts, but we outta 'ave plenty o' fun until she grows up!" they all start laughing, until she quickly sliced through a opening in their armour/a knee! The man suddenly shouted as she quickly ran by them and outside... "Geez, I thought nobody would be here..." she thought, until a stumbles out of the building and grabs her wrist "Where ya think yer goin' poppet!!?" he laughed, until she sliced off his fingers! While he screamed in pain, she  trips him and aims the sword over his neck... but hesitates...Which unfortunately allows the others to finally stagger out and grab her by her by both her wrists , they take and snap her sword as the other cut man limps outside "Ya got 'er, idiots!?" he asks. Another Viking laughed "Yea, boss! Ya gon' celebrate!!!?", the limping Viking growled "No, I'm gonna kick her teeth in!!! Nobody takes my leg!!!" he reared back, butsees his men suddenly slide in half...! He steps back as Cassi steps over them "You guys are in th' way, so..." she 'apologized' and splits him, too! The girl had fallen on the ground and is now watching as Cassi effortlessly slices the Vikings to pieces without breaking stride... (and notices Kai following with handfuls of food looted from the taverns..), she follows the General over the fresh corpses and out of town... A hour later, Kai finally turns around "Alright, I thought you were jut going our way! But if you're trying to take this..." e starts.. The girl interrupts "No... I just ate... I'm trying to figure out how to ask for help: I haven't spoken to another human being in years, and we... they're all quite touchy as you can guess...". The fairy then smiles "Oh... I see, and creatures like me are just easier than freaks like the General over there!", Cassi sighs in annoyance at hearing this, the girl then replies "'The General'? Sounds like that annoying commercial that used to come on TV.. Do you think that nameless person would help me if I asked?". The fairy laughs wryly "I don't know! The General isn't necessarily rude either, so you can follow her if ya want! I'm Kai, by the way!", the girls shakes his small hand as she introduces herself too: "I'm Ami... Wait, THAT's a girl? I thought the General was some edgy angry guy?". Cassi turns around and says "I'm a angry War general who's looking for her Cadet before exacting revenge on her ex-comrade! ...If you want to follow someone like me, I don't care, jus' don't fuck up...". ...Ami continues to follow.. then asks "General? Do you take trainees?"... Cassi sighs sharply: "Not now... watch me, and you'll probably become a killer, too... It's not gonna be fun, though..". 

That night: they find a small-metal-cave... Cassi seems excited as she nears it "Is that shit still working?!" she asks herself... Kai replies "I can sense heat coming from it!"... The general laughed "Hell yeah, I guess you ain't completely useless after all!" she ran inside as the Fairy shrugs at her 'compliment'.. Ami follows the 2 inside and sees many screens and a console in the center of the area... The General thought aloud "These things suppose ta show ya where shit is and crap... Now if I believe that skeleton thing, then I jus' ask where's east, right?", a map comes up and shows a mark showing where Cassi now stands and points in the direction of the Holy City... "I remember reading abut these things..." Ami says... The General replied "Yeah, it shoulda been in books an' shit: Map Stations used ta help people along with phones an' crap... but all of it went ta hell... what the fuck happened??" she ends up asking... The group then leaves the cave due East...




9-1-XXX!

Verily... Lys' taken to the Holy City, Rome: and ist taken care of by the woman from the mountainside... Unfortunately, the platoon arrives there a few days later and enters the Vatican walls in the center of the dilapidated village.. And again, the screams of torture and death arise... Today another customer leaves the woman's tent: "Thanks Rosy, one day I'll get you outta here!" he yells... The woman replies "I look forward to it!"... he leaves as she rolls her eyes "My ass.. He's only been here to stick his dick in somethin'...". She then turns towards the tent to find Lys there groping her friend... "Deana, stop lettin' him squeeze ya! Do ya want him to get used ta it?!" she warns.. The blonde looks up from sitting on the ground: "I don't care, Rosy... That's our job; I more so worried about this...". Her friend quickly kneels by her: "Stop that! You're thinking about it, won't make it go away... instead, you need to do something...", a amn suddenly pops his head in the tent "Heeeee-eeeeey!" he called waving money... Rosy sighs "(Dammit, my ass haven't even cooled yet...) Um, be right with you!" she says. She then turns towards Deana: "Listen, take the guy outta here, again, alright? I wanna keep someone so weak lookin' and screwed up off th' streets, but at the same time, he'll probably lose it if he saw actual sex..".. the blonde grabs Lys' hand.. "Alright, Deana…" she says in a depressed tone and leaves...

7:00 PM, she nears a canyon as evening begins to set... She smiles as sounds of cheering and music rises from the area "Hey... this is the first time I had ta take care of you when we had a meeting!" she says "Why don't I show you what I do for fun??" she giggled.. Lys now's watching the bats flap by overhead and somewhat follows her into the canyon-pass: there; many naked people dance around a flame! The chanting, sex and drinking of dead-man's blood all our signs of a satanic ritual taking place!... Deana pulls Lys closer to the area.. "Come on! It'll be fun!" she says as she sees his worried expression... She then notices blood dripping from the mark in his forehead!...

5:00 PM, Rosy finishes with the customer when she hears screaming outside!!! She runs out to see another friend of hers being dragged by horses!! "St, stop!!! Why the heck do ya think I'M a witch!!?" she yells, a paladin replied "Because unexplainable events have happened near the Holy-City ever since the Pope's arrival: we know full well you all plotted to destroy him and must;'ve conjured a witch!". Rosy ran up behind her friend and tried to undo the ropes tying her hands together: "SHHH, maybe we can just go? I mean, the people watching ain't gonna say nothin' and the paladin isn't wat..." she suddenly stops talking, after noticing the horse stopped! "You really think you're smart, huh!? Just for that..." he rears back his whip, but is suddenly cut in half by a HUGE broadsword!!! Everybody awes at seeing pieces of horses and Paladin fall around Cassi!! "So this' the place??" she asks... Ami replied "Yeah... I'm guessing someone took your friend here?".. Rosy finishes untying her friend's hands and walks up to the General: "Th, thank yo.." she starts. Cassi replied "I don't need it, jus' tell me if ya seen a guy with... limp curly hair, kinda looks space out, too...". The prostitute looks surprised and answers: "Wait.. you KNOW that guy?!". The General quickly turns completely towards her "Yeah!!! Where is he!!?", Rosy looks towards her tent "He should be back at my house by now, let's go!!!"... They race back to the tent to find neither Lys nor Deana's back... Thus, they search the nearby area until Ami notices "Hey... is that who he's talking about?" she asks as she watches Deana and Lys in the distance "He's kinda being led by the hand, like a child...". Kai replies "Maybe? I'd know if what I felt from the General resonates with that guy...", Ami starts to follow them at a distance: "Then you can read minds or something? That means when we get close, we'll know!"....

NOW, Ami and kai watch the Satanic ritual from above... "Okay... so this where they were going?" she asks... Kai replies "Yeah... I guess when God's crammed down people's throats, they turn towards this?? Wait!!!" he suddenly points into the crowd: Lys' wondering alone (While Deana's being fucked elsewhere..) "That's the guy!! That's who the General's talking about!". Ami glares "Alright, so we sneak in and..." a ghostly howl suddenly erupts from the fire!!!! Some of the people start snarling suddenly their eyes give off a creepy, ungodly glow, too! "Demons!!?" Kai yells... the girl turns towards him "What? ya gotta do a little more than that to be...", the fairy interrupts "No, I can see straight through you humans: demons are leaping out of hell, now!!!". Ami turns back towards the crowd to see them eating each other!!! She then slides down the rocky slope and towards Lys, who was somewhat safe away from the crowd... "Let's get 'em outta here!" she says as she suddenly snatched him away! Kai looks back at the horror behind them: "Maybe I should get the General here, to be safe!?", she agrees "Yeah.. I don't have a way to mow through these freaks like he does!"... Kai speeds away as Ami continues pulling Lys after her, until she's sandwiched between the Holy Army!!!? "There it is..." the veteran says.. Merry glared "The heretics even have a child here: I can't believe this was all happening right under our noses... It's near the turn of the century: God's  coming soon and we've barely cleansed the world of this evil!". Reiner smirks "Then let's hurry instead of watchin' the poor thing!" he says as he watches Ami step back: legions of demons suddenly march and/or crawled up behind her!!! She turns in horror until a shadow looms over!!!

Cassi bisects the crowd in half, the shockwave knocks Lys on the ground... he then looks up to see Cassi looking over her shoulder at him... "He's safe... he's mad, he's bleeding, but he's safe...".. She then orders: "Ami, take the Cadet outta here, I'll provide back up an' keep both armies away!!".. she replies "By yourself!!?!", Kai smirked "I'm with the General!". The general herself sighed "I told ya I'mma killer! I did this before, jus' go!!!". Ami grabs Lys' hand again and leads him away, the General aims her arm-canon at the paladins "GET THE FUCK BACK!!!!" she roars then fires straight into the army!!! Parts, blood and armor fly everywhere!! Though, Reiner moved Merry before the General fired!! "That bitch!!! What was THAT!!?" she sneers angrily, her bodyguard glares too at the General who now concentrates on the demons surrounding her! The veteran staggers back to them: "Ma'am: we caught the man that was with the girl, and learned something of great interest, he bears the mark of the beast on his forehead.. and MAY be who started this. I suggest we pull back and leave that monster to die at the hands of the demons..". Merry stares at Cassi... then back at him: "Okay..." she agrees..




 

Cassi finishes the possessed inside the canyon pass and ruhes back out across the paladin bodies, to find Ami just now standing up... "Where's Lys!!!?" she asks... The girl looks at her feet as she explains apologetically.. "They took her..."... The General snatches her u! Ami looks scared at the sudden burst of anger emitting from the general... but Cassi drops her and runs off... Meanwhile: A handful of survivors, including Deana and Lys, are taken inside the Saint-Peter Basilica.. The Pope looks them over, and assign punishments according to their sins... one of his private-bodyguards informs him: "Pope Joseph: This blackguy has the mark of the beast, and is said to've brought demons to attack our men during the last mission.". The Pope smiles "I heard of this..." he parts Lys' curly hair "I see: interlocking sixes... destroy him, in the name of the Lord!!!", he commanded! Thay snatch Lys away to the dungeon: ...there, are the bodies of tortured civilians and deadened accused people... Joseph and his men go to a spiked coffin and open it, another accused victim falls out... as they then push Lys inside and begin to close the coffin... The Cadet steps back, afraid of the inclosing spikees, until the mark bleeds again: MANY evil spirits suddenly pour from the coffin and the floor!!! The men start back to the stairs "Run, Pope!" one says, Joseph scoffed at the tormented faces coming up "Demons! Evil spirits!! Mosnters, Begone!!!". They leave the basement...  Shortly afterwards: a evacuation signal sounded through the entire Vatican city, causing the paladins to quickly look for a way out: as the ground level exit's already engulfed...

Meanwhile: Cassi, Rosy and Ami walk to the Vatican... "I have a friend inside that'll get sneak us in, that way we can save your friend and get out safely!" the prostitute explains... The General replies "It's gonna be dangerous..". Rosy smirks as she explains: "A friend of mine's  in there, too, I hafta go!". Cassi sighed agitated "Alright, just don't get in the way...". Ami thought as they near the walls "I have to make it up to the General..."... They get the Basilica and Rosy shows them a dilapidated brick formation going along the wall: They climb up to a window "Excuse me..." she says... a Oldman nears it as Rosy continues: "I know a friend by the name of Tama here.. c..." A darkness leaps over her "(Dammit! What the hell is that guy thinking?!") the prostitute thought as Cassi ran away... 

The general sees the line of Paladin marching upstairs and snatches Merry out of it! She puts her to a wall: "Where's the place ya torture the heretics and shit?!" Cassi asks, the Metropolitan replied "I, I won't answer someone like you!!", the General punched through the stone wall "I'm in a hurry!!".. Merry replies in shock "I, it's in the basement... b, but..."... The General stomped away "Dammit, ask someone a question an' they can't even help ya worth a..."... Minutes later: she enters the basement and finds only TOO clean skeletons and clothes lying around... Then sees a moving helmet?? "The fuck???" she asks, it flips over and reveals Kai (who was hiding) "General!!" he calls out. Cassi replies "Where is he!?", the fairy replies: "L, Lys is probably upstairs: but be careful: when they tried to kill him, legions of demons oozed out of the floor and started to suck the flesh off people... but they only carried him up with them!". The General glares and heads up stairs...

Up past the holding cells: Rosy, Ami, Deana and a paladin races away from the legion "They're gonna kill me for this!" he says, Rosy laughs "Sorry, but nobody should be stuck in a holding cell in monsters are comin', Tama!". Ami adds "Yeah, it'll be a worse crime if you let all those people die, because it's assumed their witches without proof..".. Tama sighed in annoyance until they came to the roof: there, they can hear Joseph screaming as the legion started to ooze in through the door above... but black blood slides from the under and around the door, too and silence ensues... The legion then starts creeping upstairs behind them until fire burns away the legion surrounding them!!!? The group looks up to see the Pope and his followers all winged, and flames coming from the Popes mouth! Lys falls out of the legion and into his hands as he laughed "The power of God has fallen been granted unto us! With this, we will burn this witchman at the stake and rid the holy city of this plague!", Ami yells "Give him back, idiot! Would a witch be that stupid? The guy has no idea of what's going on!".. Joseph glares "You mean to protect the witch??? Then you should burn in hell!", one of the men starts pushing against the door frame, causing the already weakened hall to crumble!! "Then like Samson: I will cause this structure to fall on you and crush the enemies of the Lord!" he shouted... The group steps back as the others seem ready to jump upon them if they attack... When a dark shadow passed over them, they awed at Cassi leaping up the stairs at inhuman speeds and sliced the group in pieces before they could react, the last man yells "Go and burn the witch, Pope: saving everybody is more important than fighting this man!".. Joseph flies away "Becareful, Tim..." he says, as the bodyguard himself brandishes a blade! The others watch, until Rosy says: "Hey, w should still be going up, right? Because of the monsters and for that guy!"... while they went up, Cassi glares at the winged bodyguard as he flew at her, she sliced down and destroy the floor! He chuckled "Too early, and you can't move that thing up as fast!" Tim charged at her as he said this, but is split up the middle as Cassi lifts her blade... "I honestly thought I couldn't do that... I guess bein' scared as hell, helps..." she replies as she climbs up the tower's wall and to the roof...

Outside: Joseph already  got the village to start a bonfire and tie Lys to it, as he burned away the legion oozing from the rest of the city!!! They started shouting and cursing the cadet out while fire gets closer to him, until Ami comes down on a rope, grabs him and is pulled up by Rosy and Tama!!! The crowd shouted and jeered at the group, which catches Joseph's attention!!

At the same moment: the general's already on the roof and sees black blood forming into the shape of the archdemons!!! She slashes through one and sees the Vatican below: three sixes are burned through the city and legions of evil spirits are oozing through the streets... "Shit... it's like that damned feats again.." she thought.. she then remembers what the rider said... "I'll just go to Lys!!!". She then sees a shape of Gabriel forming up from the blood... The General angrily rushed and stabs through the thing, leaping off the tower and into the Pope before he could breathe flames at the others!!! She stops herself just on the edge of the wall as the Pope fell to the ground!! "Good thing this armour's heavy as shit..." she thought aloud and almost turns towards the others, when she hears flapping!!! The General turns to see Joseph as a winged golem with brimstone dripping from his mouth!!! He slams down in front of her! "You thought a sneak attack would kill me!? But the word of God has again saved my life!" he growled as he held up his destroyed Bible! He marches to her "Now I will execute God's punishment upon you and the other heretics!!"... AT this moment: Merry and Reiner escaped the building and sees Casso standing off against the Pope, who still has his own voice: "Th, that's Joseph!!?" she asks in fear and shock.... Reiner stares in surprise too as the pope starts swinging! Cassi glares as she constantly struck at "Dammit, I can't get a chance to attack with his wings and fists constantly movin' it's all I can do to block this shit!".. She suddenly hears "Heaven's Fire!!!" and deflects his firebreath with her huge broadsword!!! The flames go from either sides of her and surviving men that was coming to his aid, as soon as he closes his mouth: Cassi quickly fires her armcanon  at  point-blank, which goes  straight through his heart. Cassi quickly held her arm "Dammit, this thing hurts like hit of ya don't brace yourself first!" she thought as the man bleeds profusely.. he then shouted "Thank you God for giving me a chance to fight for you, and allow me to take this bastard, with me!!" he tried to grab Cassi, but she quickly pushed her broadsword through his hole "When ya see God... tell 'em he made a mistake with you!!!" she yells as she flipped him into the ground below!!! The villagers all stared in terror as their 'last hope' dies... The General then turns towards the others as the legion creeps closer...

Cassi calmly walks to Lys and puts her wider bandages around him like a coat... Merry looks over the edge as the legion eats people, and becomes bigger... "What are we going to do???!" she freaks... The general strikes her blade against the roof, causing it to spark and catch fire... She holds it up as she calmly replies "We're gonna survive, they'll be inside and around the tower, where the darkness exists. They hate any natural light, so take stick, oil your blade, anything: and we'll survive the night.".

 

Thusly: the group keeps the legion away, even until it eats away the tower and it crumbles to ash in the morning light. verily, they land upon the ash and were safe. Until a passing army came unto them... wherewith during this time, they also beheld the new archdemon: Gabriel in the sky. The army raised their guns, and their bows at the thing, while the others hid away: Cassi herself has taken Lys and rides away on a stolen horse... They thusly leave the Vatican safely and heads back unto Achaea...

After traveling through many ordeals, including monsters and armies, the partners arrive at Achaea one more..

1-7-XX!! 

Silvia stares at the tombstone of Oden... "Good morning daddy..." she says sadly... she then hears snow crunching behind her, she turns to see Cassi and Lys! The Cadet hugs her tightly as the General says "Hey...". The girl smiles sadly "You're both alive?!"she exclaims, Cassi replies "Kinda... it forever to get back here... There was a buncha monsters and shit... like everybody else was hyped up about some shit..", Silvia smiles and explains "We barely heard what's been happening for the last few months.. but fortunately, it never gets too close to here....". The General then notices "Hey... who jus' died??", the girl sadly replies as Lys kisses her cheeks "Oden.. he died just recently. He said it was from old age... but.. he was still so strong..". Cassi pats her shoulder "Shit... I know how ya feel, don't look back: your future is more important than now: the ol' guy wouldn't want ay to cry an' shit..." she asuures her, Silvia looks up as she wipes her eyes "I know... Hey...", she perks up a little "Wh, why don't you two stay here? Instead of searching for that other guy, we could all live happily, here!?". The General stares into her eyes and thought: "The girl's graspin' at shit... she barely knows me, probably except for what Keel told her... Looks like she wantsta live peacefully in some kinds family shit...", she turns towards Keel, who's making a sword by fixing a handle onto it... He's standing in the middle of a field of them, each with names inscribed on  the handles... "And he's doin' some kinda memorial thing for the rebels... Looks like he forgot all about th' shit and is focusin' on movin' on... but...". Cassi sighs and looks back at Silvia, still waiting for a answer "I can't... I wanna relax, but that bastard killed them all: What Silvia wants from me is what I had from the army... an' Gabriel killed them!!! I have to murder that fucker!!! Then again... whatever th' hell he's doin' won't screw wit' me ow.. he'll be with them asshole demons and probably get fucked up by some other superfreak who can peel all his kin off an' seal his stupid dumbass up.."... The General then says: "Alright...", Silvia cheers "Yay! It'll be fun! Me, you and Keel can live peacefully here at least! Even with everything that happens out there!". Cassi  smiles wryly as Lys plays in Sylvia's hair... until she say a glare come across the snowy lanscape... She turns to see Gabriel standing in the memorial of swords, the General turns towards him "There he is!! I was gonna forget it, but now he's on the same field of existence: I'll tear him in pieces!!" she roars as she rushes him "Fuck you!!!!!". The prince scoffs at her as a humanoid thing suddenly blocks the General!!! They fight as Keel and Silvia watch in terror "HaHAHAHAhaha! yoU thiNk yOu Can ToucH the MasteR like ThaT?!" the demon laughed, Cassi yells "Get the fuck outta my way, ya dumbass!!!". She cracks his hand, then aims at his head and fires!!! The demons head and horns are shattered, but thin leaped at her again, she suddenly cuts him in half in a angry slice!!! "Gabriel!!! Stop running!! Ya betrayed us all and now you come face to face with me and ya won't even try to defend yourself!!!?" she roars... the prince replied "I will kill you when I need to, but as for now.. I only wanted to see if I made the wrong choice: Seeing you and the mindless cadets that are left... I feel nothing, it's true: I'm fated to take control over the Earth and all that therein, and the Legion of rebels.. everyone in it, were jut pawns. Nothing more than means to finally take what's rightfully mine, why should I care about a handful of people, when the entire world's mine?"... Cassi angrily rushes the prince, but his leathery-wings spread out and he flies away!!! Cassi angrily watched as he zoomed away at ungodly speeds... "Dammit... damn him!!!", Keel awed in horror... "Wh, what EXACTLY happened back at that Black moon??" he asks...

Cassi tells him everything... and how he betrayed them from sheer, unadulterated greed.... Keel stares in shock.. and replies "I never thought he was only after that.. I thought he wanted to help people...".. The general sighs "No... the entre time, he jus' wanted the kingdom back, 'cause he's a  greedy asshole, not out out of sense responsibility or shit for his kingdom.. That's probably why we took a much as we could, but still under a restraint, so nobody would know what he was doin'... But now..", she looks at Lys holding silvia, she watches the General sadly upon hearing her tale... Cassi continues.. "I need to find a safe place for Lys.. during my fight: I noticed he was eyein' my cadet alot... I'm not sure what he wants exactly, but I figure whatever he'll get from his heart is somethin he shouldn't have... plus... the guy's completely defenseless like that.. I need to find a safe place for th' guy..". The girls sighs sadly "And since he knows about this place, that means you can't stay here?"... The General sighs "yeah... It gotta be someplace hidden an' similar to this: where others ain't gonna find 'm either..", Kai suddenly grabs her cheeks: "I got it, Alfhiem!! My home! It's protected completely and junk! Even if Gabriel finds it, he can't get in because he isn't anyways near pure!". The General laughs "Alright, wait... I'mma murderer and Lys' a ragin' perv: we can go?!", the fairy replies "Yeah! You don't kill unnecessarily and Lys even seems to have constraint when he's mad: you both can get in!".. The General smirks "Alright, let's go... We ain't gonna get to Alfheim by standin' around all day...", Keel suddenly says: "Wait!! Aren't ya gonna take a siesta?! Ya been runnin' all th' way, here!? At least eat somethin'!!". Cassi replies "I been fishin' an' crap since on th' way here: It'll be fine, come on Lys!", the Cadet runs to her as she says "Let's go an' find ya a new home.."... She takes Lys away into the colder winter snow...
 


 

1-30-XX!!

Cassi and Lys travel North towards Alfhiem, with Kai leading the way... Verily, whenst they travel: the madness struck Lys would leave at random and wonder after things they find out in the wilderness.. The General and Kai would go after and capture the man again, which stressed out Cassi greatly.. she found food for and watched him relived himself and has grown tired of traveling in the cold with the man... "Shit... I never thought this would be this hard: by myself, it was easy... I only had me to look after, but now... it's different than even in the army... I'm almost alone with this man who can't even feed himself... Lys was always weak before, but now he's incapable of understanding what's going on around him... I admit... I loved having someone needing me, saving and taking care of him before, gave me a since of control and pride I never had with my bastard dad and his uncles... Being constantly molested and beaten made me feel weak, but... the army... and eventually training a Cadet myself, gave me a chance to feel something I don't normally feel.. The control and over Lys and his dependency on me was a way I could feel strong, and prove to myself I wasn't like my old man... Until we were in the cave.. 'm not sure, but... The Cadet giving me control over his body jus' for telling him my name, was so awesome for me... I would've taken him in that moment... I'm unsure if I'm just fucked up, or if we both had feelings for each other in jus' a few months... but I wanted him so badly... and now... That's probably why I'm puttin' up with his stupidity, the idiocy of this man right now... Because deep down inside: his helplessness reminds me of the man I had feelings for... And it makes it hard to give up on somethin' so stupid..." Cassi thought this everytime she'd grow impatient with Lys and the possibility of something being there besides a sense of 'loyalty' to the cadet/part of the army... This continues until one day...

Cassi wakes up to find Lys' gone!! "Fuck!! Where the shit did that bastard go now!?" she yells, kai replies "I, I don't know, I went to sleep, too! I can still sense him though, he's close by!!"... They search frantically and find Lys sneaking to a beehive... The General quickly snatches him away "Stop that!" she yells! Then wraps rope around his hands! "Stop General! It'll probably remind him of when he was with those heretics and paladins!" the fairy warns, Cassi replies "I don't care: it's ta keep him alive! What if there was somethin' there waitin' ta kill 'em!!?". She tightens the knot and drags him away... Lys constantly tried to move his hands, but is unable to... 

 

2-14-XX!!

Cassi slept by a tree one morning... she woke up in a daze as she thought: "I jus' remembered... My birthday wassa while ago, right? I remember mama sayin' it came when Sagittarius was comin'... But that's long gone by now... When did I join the rebels? ...I was 10? So... how many years... I'm 14... maybe 15? There's no way I'd know by now... Always tried to keep track, though..." she thought as she counted on her fingers... She's then alerted by Kai: "General, L, Lys broke loose!!!". Cassi turns to see the ropes cut on her blade!! Meanwhile... Lys sneaks to a cave with 3 thieves sitting inside, they talk to each other while their canned beans are warming over a fire... Until.. they hear a *clink* noise.. the men turn to see Lys drinking the beans!!! "The fuck!!!?" one says, the other glared "That greedy fucker!!!", the last growled "Let's eat him instead!!". The first-thief swings, Lys steps back (as the memories of dodging in the army before, came up..). but the second-thief punched his head, knocking the Cadet over! The third-thief them kneels over him and put his dagger up to his neck... Lys yells out in pain from the hit and in fear as the thieves loom over him... His mark starts bleeding profusely... 

Meanwhile: Cassi hears the yell and starts towards the cave "Shit!!!' she thought aloud and runs to the entrance: the abruptly stops to see Lys walking out with a dagger and covered in blood... She watches him as he walks out "He seems fine... what the fuck happened in there?!" she wondered as he staggers forward, he trips in the snow, still dizzy from the hit, Cassi runs to him as he rolls over and mistakenly knocks her over him! The General caught herself before she fell completely atop the Cadet, and inadvertently kisses him again! Funnily, Lys has no trouble remembering kissing the General and slowly rubs his hands down towards her behind... Until Cassi feel something force her unto his neck!!!? She starts to bite hard as he tries to push her off, until the morning-light shines on her, she quickly let's go and sees a demon fading away... "Dammit!! What did I do!!!?" she yells, the General then turns towards Lys again, who's reaching at her... "You're too forgiving..." she growls as she stood...

Meanwhile: Kai flies towards where he heard the scream: but was searching further away than Cassi... He suddenly notices.. "Ami!!?".. The girl stops trudging through the snow, with armfuls of food... "You!!?" she asks... Reiner and Merry arrive a few feet away "Hey! Come..".. she stops as she notices the fairy... Kai looks at the three... "You guys are traveling together now?" he asks... Reiner laughed "No, that brat took our food!", the Metropolitan adds "I'm not sure why he's laughing about it: we'll STARVE if she gets away!"... She then looks at Kai.. "Um.. why're you here?". He suddenly remembers "I'm still following the General! We're searching for our friend now!" he says as he suddenly flies away! Merry follows him, prompting Reiner and Ami to also, out of curiosity...

They find Cassi retying Lys up... "You found him!" he exclaims... she replies sadly "Yeah... I did...". Kai wonders at her tone, until they both here Merry.. "General??". Cassi turns to see her standing a few feet away... "What?" she asks in annoyance.. The Metropolitan kneels, surprising Reiner, and says: "I...never thanked you for saving my life...".. The General shrugs "I don't that... Probably saved a lot of people, but thanks isn't gonna help me now... forget it...", Merry then says "I know… for someone like you, and what you went through... I see you're probably not what I thought... I'm not what I thought either...".. She then looks into Cassi's eyes as she then finishes "Please allow me to follow you. I, I'm not of the Vatican... I never was.. I just did what I was told.. I need a new path in life..".. Cassi shrugs "Alright, c'mon.. The more the merrier.. All ya hafta do is watch my Cadet: Lys." she orders... and leads Lys away by the rope... The others follow... as Kai wonders: "She let 'em come with her too easily, almost like she likes any of them.. I wonder what happened?" he thought as he flew after her too...
 


2-28-XX!!

Verily: The group has left Achaea and upon entering the abandon train used by Merry and Reiner, hast quickly reached Østfold... Thusly, they depart at the abandoned station there and near the forest: "It's near here!" Kai explains "Deep in this forest... I think...". They follow the fairy into the nearby woods.. then notices a strangely huge pile of dung by a tree... "Wh, what's that from!?" Merry asks... Ami replies.. "A monster... something that eats a lot of people... It looks like a troll's but.." she trails off, unknowing what exactly it belongs to... The group continues passed it and finds few more, blood's also seen everywhere, but the gruesome sights disappear as they head further into the woods... Ami then asks "I've been wondering: how DID you guys get a train earlier?!", the Metropolitan replies "The HolySee has leftover technology and still can repair some machinery we find: the train was abandoned,, but still in good condition..." she stops now The group happens onto a tree-cottage in a clearing... Morning-light shines through the lush-green-trees there, too.. The General nears the treehouse... "This'  Alfhiem!?, she asks.. Kai replies "No... We MIGHT be lost? I still sense fairies here though..". The suddenly ground shakes violently as  a small army of golems grow from the ground!! The General whips out her Broadsword: "Shitfuck!!!!".. Everybody except Lys and Kai, readies their weapons to, and proceed to fight back the 'guards'...  

Meanwhile, on the cottage porch: a little-witch watches them: "Alright! Lesseee if they can handle security! They gotta pass out before they beat 'em!" she thought aloud to herself. Cassi shatters a Golem, then watches it fix back again... "I think I know what's makin' them get back up!" she yells out, and smashes the thing once more: the General picks up a marble that's suspened in the air where the Golem stood! "These damned things keep bringin' them back!!" she yells, Reiner slices a Golem to pieces and grabs a marble "Hell yeah!! This' gonna be easy!". Ami slices one to pieces to and snatched the marble "Then we'll get the freak sending them at us!" she says in contempt. The little-witch smirks "Oh yeah?! We'll just see how they deal with...".. she's suddenly stopped by a voice "Aryssa..." a elderly voice says... The little-witch whined "But Ms. Endoraaaa! I just wanna..."... the Elder-witch's silence scares her... so Aeryssa turns back towards the others "Fine! I'll stop 'em..." she says... All the Golems suddenly drop, the group stares in wonder.. until stairs suddenly appear going up to the cottage porch, with the little-witch saying: "Ooooooh worthy Traveler's, come up!" in a grand tone! Cassi looks at the others "What the fuck??", Reiner laughs "Guess we're going up a level?" he jokes... The General smirks too, and goes up the stairs, the others follow, too...

Inside the cottage: many phials and flasks can be seen on tables, just in the foyer alone. There's also a cauldron in the middle of the large room, too! "Welcome to our home!" Aeryssa says cheerfully! The group all quickly turns towards her, Merry giggles nervously "Ah, I wasn't expecting that! Um... please to meet you!". The little-witch laughs "Ha, I know what you were expectin'! A ugly ol' green witch that'll throw spells and junk at you as soon as ya come in!", Ami shrugs "Well you got 2 outta 5: you ARE a ugly witch...". Aeryssa glares "Hey! That's how ya gonna act after I let y...", Endora calls out again: "Aeryssa..", The little-witch stops her retort and huffs "Come with me, my teacher wants to meet 2 of you...".. The group follows her into a ballroom, Reiner and Kai look at eachother, with the Paladin shrugging again.. They enter the ballroom and find only a single elderly witch sitting in the middle of the room: a closed off balcony is behind her, making it look like she's glowing in the morning-light... The group nears her as she asks... "Hello dearies: I'm Endora. And let me guess, you're.. Cassiopeia, Lys, Reiner, Merry, Ami and.. Kai, right?", the group looks at eachother, then at the General! "You're name's Cassiopeia!?" Reiner asks in surprise, Ami adds "That's surprising!!". Kai explains "That's why I didn't ask her name when we first met: I could sense it was something the General might've wanted to keep secret..". The General herself replies "He's right, it IS something I wanted to be secret! So shut up!", Endora covers her mouth: "I'm sorry dear, I had no idea why'd you want to hide such a beautiful name!" she explains... Cassi replies "Forget it, it's not like you'd make fun of it, right?". The witch giggles "Right!", she then took a serious expression "Now on to somethin a little more serious: You come at a great time, for us! I'm nearly unable to teach nor take care of precious, dear Aeryssa anymore...". The little-witch looks upset as Endora continues "And it's almost time for her to return back to her academy. With you two here, you could easily bring her back home, and keep her safe from monsters and other evil creatures.", the General replies "What's in it for us? I gotta lot on my ass at the moment..". Ami snickers as Merry retorts in shock: "General!!", Endora smiles pleasantly "Of course I'll repay you: by doing something about that mark on you and your Cadet..". Cassi steps closer to her and asks in some excitement "You can remove the mark!?", the witch replies sheepishly "No, it's complicated demonic-magic. But I can seal it to keep demons from being summoned for the feast and to keep monsters from sensing you easily.". The General sighs in relief "That's better than nothin'!", Endora smiles happily again and says "Great, but this will take some time: please wait and rest before heading out again?"...

Verily, verily: The group rests within the cottage for 2 days.. and in this time, does the the travelers rest, train, help with chores and eat. On the 1st day they settled in, and on the 2nd did the witches finish their work and prepared to send the group off that night.. "Now, I must tell you all something very important.." Endora says as thy all sit at a huge table, eating.. "You must be wondering where all the monsters come from, especially since there's nothing about in history books, right? Magical creatures and such were existent with humans billions of years ago, but were separated up until now. Just now, centuries ago: they were able to cross into our world again, because they were always there. Without going to long, in just the few hundred years in Earth's time, we're able to contact eachother again, despite being right beside each other for years.. This has bought both horror and beneficial relationships..". She looks at Kai who's stuffing his face.. "We're all able to live peacefully together, but many events causes our reltionships to be strained in many different ways. In fact, to keep safe: I enchanted my cottage so that those who got too close would've gone away from this world, but you 5 were lucky enough to get in!". Ami stares in suspicion "Lucky?!" she asks... Aeryssa explains "What Ms Endora means is that normally you'd legally died if you all weren't with your Fairy! Also, Cassiopeia♪ (Your name's so pretty!) and Lys could get in too, because of the mark:it makes them contact demons AND other magical creatures, easily!". The girls shudders, Reiner and Merry shivered "We almost died!!!?" they thought aloud... Aeryssa giggles "Dont worry! You wouldn't of even came way out here without a Fairy's help, and you woulda been safe, so...", Endora laughs "Yes, she's right! Now, please go with Aeryssa once you're done eating: we have your seals ready!". Cassi stands and grabs Lys' hand "Come on, no more monsters..." she sighs in relief... Later: the little-witch stares at the Cadet's forehead, while the others bathe and/or talk.. The General sat on a stool as Endora seals her neck "AHHH!" she seethed! The Elder-witch smiles "Sorry, it goes under the skin to marr the mark, so it's somewhat like a tattoo..", the General replies "So long as I won't get possessed by demons anymore..". The witch laughs "Of course it can't happen! This seals off summonings, so of course possession is out of the question..", Cassi stands and picks up her armour.. "Um..." she starts.. Endora replied "I know what you're going to ask: where's your friend? That young man who betrayed your army?". The General angrily replies: "He's not a friend, he's a fucking dick, who sold his soul and people for a kingdom and abuncha dirt, like a jackass!", Endora replies: "I understand, but for this reason, I can't tell you where he is.. But for what I can tell you, is how he now works with hell and Earth...". Cassi stares at her in wonder as the witch explains: "When he agreed to go to hell, he became part of one of the alternate worlds. There's 3 different world that correlate with our own, ours is Earth. The others are: Hell, Purgatory and the Afterlife. Hell's where the demons and wild monsters are born, when people go there, they transform into some of the monsters you see.. Purgatory is where the still unholy but not evil, go.. They're striving for heaven but are unable to let go of Earth, so become monsters and phantoms, this is also where monsters go when they die... The Afterlife is somewhat better than the others. You're still on Earth, but are unable to contact anything alive.. This is where spirits such as Fairies, Sprites, sylphs and other types of spirits are born.. Innocent yet ones not striving for Heaven beings go here and transform into these nomatter what they were before... As I've said: centuries ago, the gates between these worlds have become blurred and opened, letting everything into everyworld... You're alive on Earth, but slipping into the others can be done by death or travelling via magic...". The General stares in surprise as Endora finishes "As for your journey for revenge, you'll be fightinging someone who can exist here, in purgatory and in hell at once. They're dead , undead and alive.. They let go of this world and are not innocent, so they exist between onlh 3 of 4, if you still chase them, it will be dangerous!". Cassi replies "Everthing is, my life's been danger up until this moment..." she sighs.. then leaves..

3-1-XX!!

The group gets ready to leave as Cassi says "Alright, off to some randome assed Academy..", Merry shudders "Um... General Cassiopeia...". The General turns towards her "You're not part of the army, hell.. it's not even a army anymore: you don't have to call me that..", the Metropolitan replied "I know, it's a sign of respect... Your rank is important, no matter what... And..". She sighs, then explains "Me and Reiner will take Aeryssa to the Academia, I fear you're a little rough.. to be around children.", her Paladin laughed "For real?! Guess it could be fun!". Cassi laughs "Thanks! I REALLY didn't wanna go there!!!", Merry laughs a little too.. The little-witch runs up to them "W, wait!!! Before you go... Lys isn't sealed completely.. It's like his mind's going everywhere: there's no definite conscious in there! It's like Lys' trapped by a buncha people and his own emotions!" she explains! Cassiopeia replies "He's mad... It took me a while to realize, but I heard people mention it before.. The archdemons we contacted has driven him to madness, or infected him with it.. He probably can't snap out as easy as I did..." she sighs at him as he plays with a Golem.. Ami then suggests "We can't take him outta here, I was planning on following you, but we're nearing decent civilization again.. I wanted money to live safely, not to actually be a swordsman.. if we go, you'll be alone with him, so.. maybe.. leave him here?". Kai swirls around the General "Wait! If you take him, you'd make sure he's okay! He's hard to take care of, but you don't know what could happen to him if he happens to wander away...", Merry smiles "I'd take him, but it's awkward, I can't care for him like I would another female...", Reiner adds "I can't even keep a dog, so..". Aeryssa smiles proudly: "I could! Lemme keep him! I wanna fix that seal! It'll be a great challenge!", Cassi grab's Lys' hand and pulls him to her "Damn, ya act like he's a dog..." she retorts.. Then looks into her Cadet's eyes... "Dammit... she thought as he stares deeply back into hers... "It's because I feel this way, that I have to leave you behind.." she thought. "Here, take the Cadet..". She walks away from Lys... "The army's disbanded anyway, all I am now, is a straggler lookin' for revenge...".. The group splits up.. as Aeryssa holds Lys' hand.. Lys himself squeezes her hand tighter.. making her blush slightly...


 

Wallachia

3-5-XX!!

Thusly, the group has departed, with Merry, Reiner, Kai and Lys taking Aeryssa to her academy, as the General and Ami heads to Wallachia, Romania. Verily, they receive hints on where a Archdemon lurked, and hast received help from other fairies and more piles of dung as they say in the forest afore.. Ami trained with Cassi and verily hast learned how to fight with larger and more weapons, and both hast easily defended against the trolls, hobgoblins and demons as they near the area where the Archdemon is, so that the General can learn the location of the prince and utterly destroy the vile being... Thusly, the girl leaves before this occurs as she begins to make a name for herself and is asked away by  civilians for reason of the monsters storming the nation. Cassi though, only hast one goal and heads straight to Wallachia, undeterred by the deaths and pleadings of the humans around her... One night, she rests in a bar.. as she hears fussing going on near the counter... The General starts to doze off: "Shit... The damned fairies said there wassa another Archdemon here, but I can't find nothin' but huge piles of shit..." she thought as she starts to lose consciousness.. until she hears a loud "An' see!!? there goes one of 'em rigcht here!!!". Cassi gets up to see 2 drunks wobbling in front of her... the General stood "What?!" she asks annoyed. A drunk replied: "you know...what!!! You one of 'em mercenary peoples aren't yeh!!? The type who bought this crap on us here innocent people!!", Cassi sighs and explains "No I didn't ya dumbass!!! I jus' came in th' damn bar for a fuckin' drink! Now git outta my face!". The other drunk gets a in a fighting position as the initial one continued "You don' fool me, bastard! Yall ijits is what pissed off that Count and got 'em demons sent all over th' place!", Cassi gets excited upon hearing this: "The Count sent the demons?! So where is..." she starts to ask, when the drunk sucker punches! The General caught his fist "I was askin' ya fuckin' question! Why can't people jus' answer fuckin' anything!!!?", the drunk scoffed "We ain't helpin' ya!!!" he swings again, Cassi catches his fist, then counters and knocked him on the floor! The other drunk then grabs her from behind while the bartender ran to get in on the action! He tramples his patron and kicks the General's crotch! "You ain't gettin' nowhere!" Cassi warned, and flipped the drunk atop of the bartender and gangster-stomped the men until unconsciousness! She then walked outside... "Alright... so th' Count of this damn place released the demons... but I haven't seen shit... well, I've only seen shit.." she thought aloud.. until she sees a vague humanoid-shape with batwings in the air... The General starts in that direction, but starts getting woozy from drinking... and rests close by the town...

3-6-XX!!

Cassi wakes up under a tree, then heads to the City of Bucharest,  "Fuck..." she says as she notice a guard standing at the town gate: "They probably won't let me in wit'out shit... 'cause of the demons...".. she then heads to a drainage pipe.. and sees fecal matter and blood pouring from it... it stops and she squeezes through: "Good thing I ain't big as all fuckin' hell... Also, PLEASE don't let them dump through here again!" she thought... She came to the exit and looks around.. then jumps out and walks around the village.. She watches people cleaning up dead bodies and blood, some are barricading their homes while others are crying... She passes over a bridge and see heaps of bodies under it... The General spits on them and continues wondering, until she sees a tent?....

Cassi goes in out of curiosity and sees several people praying and/or reading, dressed in robes.. "What the hell?" she mutters.. a Oldman looks up from praying and invites: "Please come in, stranger.."... The General walks further inside, as the others now watch her... "What are ya people? You don't look like the villagers.." she asks curiously... He replied "We're travelling Mages from Welsh, are community are nomads who simply try to make the world better with our magics..", the General shrugs "Cool... Actually I'm glad you told me all that: I've been askin' shit for a while, an' nobody wantsa answer!". The Oldman then asks "What kind of questions, sir? 'd be glad to help.", she replies "Alright could ya tell me about th' Count here? I heard he's a Archdemon an' shit..". The Oldman replied "Of course... The Archdemon is said to be the reincarnation of Count Dracula, but simply due to his powers. Something happened a few years ago, and since then: people have been living in fear, the Count has trapped everybody within the nation and is using legions of demons to torment them.. Fortunately, he shows no interest in outsiders and we can come and go whenever..".. The General arches her eyebrow "Then why're ya staying here?!", another mage steps in front of him "Because his granddaughter's stuck here!". The Oldman suddenly spoke up "W, wait, don't...", the younger mage replied "We can ask him! This might be our last chance!"... he turns back towards the General and pleaded: "His granddaughter's stuck under the city, she's been looking for a way to stop Dracula and it supposedly exists under Bucharest , but.. she hasn't been back in days! PLEASE look for her, sir!!?". She sighs "Well, since ya scratched my back... I'll do yours..", she turns to leave as the Oldman and mage stares in shock at how easy she agreed!? The General looks for a sewer opening as she thought: "If I can get whatever's under there, I could probably use it to get Dracula to tell me where th' other assholes are at... then I can get that jackass!!"...

A hour later, Cassi finds a sewer opening, and crawled in...Under Bucharest:  there's many old pipes and subway tracks littered all over.. it seems as if the sewage passed this, but now everything's together as the place's dilapidated... The General walks by a pipe and notices: "It's warm? There was barely any electricity in th' city... especially since demons been attackin' Why the fuck is this so fucking warm!!!?" she thought, until the floor gives way! Th General lands on the on another floor, on her feet! "Ha!  I was kinda ready for..." she starts, until the floor disintegrates again! The General slams into the bottom floor "Fuck..." she said.. then noticed many lifelike statues and small lamps around her? Some were broken in pieces... "What the fuck??" she thought... Until she here's a roar behind her, the General turns to see a cyclops running into the room barely lit room! Cassi prepares to kill, when it fires a laser from it's eye!! The General quickly rolls behind one of the pillars holding a lamp: "Shitfuck!!! I guess that's what turned all these assholes?? I can't get a clear shot... until..." she thought, the cyclops suddenly stops firing for a break, she then quickly rolls out and fires!!! The shot opens the thing's chest, but it angrily fires again! The General hides behind the pillar once more! "Dammit! You're suppose to be dead, dumbass!!!!" she yells, the thing stops again and charge, the general quickly leaps from behind the pillar, and flips towards the cyclops: splitting it in half from it's eye down through it's crotch! The thing finally dies... "Damn... why the fuck is it's heart and shit in it's eye??" she wondered until one of the statue reverts to human!!! "AAAAH!" she screamed as Cassi walks to her "Glad you're all in one piece... Um, your people were comin'  for you.."  the General explains...  The mage gets up "!!!!!Wha... wh.... I..." she notices her friends all statues and in pieces... "I guess you saved me?" she asks as she looks up at the General... Cassi replies "I guess, manipulation magic's usually a strained shit... so killin' th' monster returns shit back..". She turns to leave.. the mage does too as she introduces herself: "W, wait: my name's Hailey! What's yours?"... Cassi replies "I used to be a General of a army.. "... Hailey wonders at her reply when she notices her friends' mutilated bodies turning back from stone and... quickly follows Cassi out...

The girls find the way out via going up and following the tracks...
 



Dhamphir
 

That evening: Cassi returns Hailey to the mages... "Hailey!!!" her granddad says happily, "Granddaddy!!" she cries as she hugs him! The General sighs "Awesome, so we scratched each other..." she says before she leaves... Hailey then notices Cassi leaving so soon.. "Wh... He didn't want anything?"... her granddad replied "No... for some reason he selflessly went to search for you, merely to find Dracula... I'm not sure, but... he may be a pure individual: helping find you while looking to save the nation itself..".. his granddaughter awes in surprise...

Meanwhile: Cassi heads back to the same sewer entrance: "Alright, back down to find th..." she starts, but quickly notices nightfall coming... "Shit, shit, shit, shit..." she thought as she starts running "I forgot about th..."... legions of demons suddenly fly from the sky!!! Screams of horror and anguish suddenly rise as they tear through the city and start breaking through barricades, the General hurries to the sewer entrance when a demon drops down in front of her!! It prepares to breathe fire as Cassi holds her broadsword up... "Please don't let it melt this blade..." she thought out loud, until the fire spurts out, stops then leaps back onto the demon, burning it alive!!! The General looks over her shoulder and sees Hailey.. "What the hell?!" she asks... the Mage replies: "Granddaddy told me all about what you're doing! Let me help save Wallachia! Together we can save everybody!" , The General explains "Alright, but it's gonna be hell: The guy who's doin' this issa Archdemon.. they're nasty as shit...". Hailey replies "Well we're nastier... or stronger!"... Cassi sighs and heads towards the sewers once more, with Hailey following behind..

Under the city: they traversed the area until they came across strange machinery... they continued further down until they found still working, technology unlike what's seen on the surface!! "What the hell???!" Cassi exclaims.. the Mage adds "Someone maintained our ancestors' inventions??"... they awed until both notices a coffin in the middle of the room... it opens and reveals a  dhampir rising from inside... He readies his blade... "Welcome to my castle, um... who are you?" he asks in a somewhat sleepy voice. The General replied "People lookin' for a way ta kill Dracula, there's suppose ta be one here...", Hailey agrees "Yes... um... could you be it?"... The dhampir crosses his arms "Why don't we see?" he asks in laughter... Cassi readies her blade "What th' fuck is that suppose ta mean?! Are you or not!?", he tries to stop laughing as he replies "W, w, wait, it's some kinda inside joke.. a stupid one, t...". The General rushes him "I know what ya doin'! Ya have ya blade ready, so bring it on!", she swung QUICKLY, the dhampir phases around her and slices down at her armor! Cassi quickly turns and blocks, but is almost pushed into the floor!!! Hailey watches in suspense until the General kicks his crotch... the dhampir smiles "C'mon, I thought ya had more class than that!?", he kicks hers, knocking her into a pillar! Cassi barely gets up when the dhampir appears over her!!! He came down again, and she barely blocks with her broadsword, the supernatural being almost crushes her under her own blade with one hand!!... Until Hailey says "Stop!!!! Aren't you it!!!?"... He looks over his shoulder to see her hand flaming.... He then stands, Cassi gets up too as he says: "Yea, but I couldn't get a chance ta tell ya! Ya friend tried ta kill me before I could finish laughing!". The General replies "I'm inna hurry, here!", he turns towards her "Alright, I'll tell ya: See, I CAN stop Dracula, but th' last time I tried it, he kicked my arse! It's funny I became known assa weapon to stop him, when I couldn't before... But now I think I can!".... Hailey smiles "So you and us will work together!", the General sighs as she adds "You THINK you can beat th' guy, now? What's changed?!". The dhampir explains: "I ain't a killa, so I didn't try doin; shite.. But now I rested for a couple of years with the intent of murderin' th' guy! So...  My powers sifted from chill to murderous!", he then smiles "But, before we begin: Wot's ya name?"... Cassi sighs "The General..", the mage cheerfully adds "And mine's Hailey!". The dhampir then introduces himself: "I'm Lite Tepes, son of Dracula! Well, a descendant of th' guy... My dad's named Dracula too, but outta hype from the original... But... when he made a deal with a buncha demons, he actually became like him... He got worse until now... I think he even got mad over somethin'... legit... but how he's doin' it is fucked up...", the General sighed in annoyance: "Alright, what's th' purpose in this crap?! We're jus' gonna get to 'em and gank him, right?". Lite pleasantly replies "Were gonna be workin' together, so let's be cordial and shite!"... they start to leave as he smiles "Heheheh, after getting my arse kicked: I get escorted out by 2 lovely ladies! I'mma lucky shite considerin'!!". Hailey looks surprised "What!!? The General?!", Cassi sighs again as the dhampir replied "Yeah, I can smell detailed shite... In fact, I can take us straight to th' castle... but seriously: you humans need to rest before tomorrow... It's gonna be hard as fuck!"....

3-7-XX!!

Thus, they easily ended the demonic raid in the city (with Lite's help), and slept that night and in the day: traveled towards the castle...  Hoping to reach it before nightfall... The group then stops at a burned mansion...  "What the shit!!?" the General asks in annoyance...  Lite explains as he smiles "We're stopping to eat! I heard both of your stomachs growl a buncha times on our way here! I understand people're dying, but we cant save 'em if we're too weak!". Hailey blushes slight as she says: Ah! You heard me??", then Cassi angrily retorts "Whatta 'bout you!? Why only stop for us, if we're all goin' there!!?". The dhampir laughs "I already had plenty!" his teeth are visible as he laughed; bloodstains can be seen everywhere... "Besides, let's try ta have fun before we get there!? Again, I get to take too ladies 'out to eat'! This is probably the only time I get ta do something like this, too!". The Mage awes as he whips out steaks and beer from thin-air! He sets the food on the table... she then asks: "So you were a ladies man before?" she giggles...  The General somehow finishes her steak in a single bite as Lite explains: "No.. I didn't getta chance to be, but I was always practicing hosting shite and junk... Mother loved it..." his smile wavers slightly...then he regains his excitement "But, let's keep goin'! After ya eat, we're headed straight to the castle, with this!". He telekinetically pulls a whip to his side... Cassi stares in curiosity as he explains: "We came to eat AND for this, I don't think dad knew a weapon for his destruction wos here...And he still has no idea I'm alive, so after ya finish, we'll be going full steam ahead!", Hailey quickly starts eating, after noticing Cassi and Lite were already finished.. as the dhampir himself gives the whip to Cassi... "My dear lady: You're the only one who can do it: Ms. Hailey's a magic-user, and I can't use this when it activates." he explains cheerfully... The General turned away...
 


Dracula

 

Cassi, Hailey and Lite get to the castle: but upon having to fight with monsters  that hast invaded the dilapidating/destoyed city, thus the dhampir made the group break once more as they fought for long hours and Lite himself did not want to bring harm unto his only comrades.. Verily, they eventually entereth the castle... and finds vampires randomly talking inside the huge lobby... "Holy shite, I knew they didn't know we were coming, but they're THIS unprepared!?" Lite says quietly to his partners... They step of the front step and onto the marble stone floor and carpet... This slight noise alerts the vampires, causing all to charge them!! Lite quickly phases through and stakes their hearts with his blade! The General easily tears them to pieces via moving her broadsword in any direction, very few dodge her by turning into mist at the last second! Hailey easily burns solid vampires, and freezes the misty ones; allowing the General to smash them to pieces! They continue staking and burning vampires as they the to the staircase... Cassi finishes one more by breaking his body to pieces and stepping through his head... Lite then sees another upstairs and throws his blade at his head, barely missing him! The vampire ran further up as the group follows! Lite leads the way as he can easily smell where his dad is... They suddenly here a *skkkkkkkrrrrrt!* sound as they near Dracula's throne room.. and see the vampire-from-before's head rolling down the stairs... Lite ran ahead of the girls and quickly steps into the room! "Dad!!!" he snarled... Dracula angrily glances from his wine glass towards him... "You? You're still alive?" he asks in annoyance.. The dhampir replied "Yea! And you're still a butthole!!! You can't kill other people; innocent people, like mother wos, because you're angry! Wot the actual hell!!? Wot If everybody did this!?".. The King of Vampires sighed "And what makes you think you can say that and live? What makes you think I'd listen, and even if you're prepared to attack: what's different from before?" he asks laconically..  Lite replies "I'm not alone!" Cassi and Hailey enters the room... Dracula sighed again: "You're all far too weak to even consider what you're doing now: normal vampires are a slight step above human beings. Asking 2 weaklings with human magics and weapons won't stop me... In fact it's a bore to even take you seriously, killing my servants or the demons of hell isn't anything. True power comes from the depths of hell, not just hell itself: My magics, my being is that of a Archdemon. Along with my vampirism I'm part of the league of Lucifer's private army: why would you even begin to believe that you are ANY human can even scratch me?"... Lite almost retorts when Cassi screamed "I saw what ya do to become one f you bastards! Ya sacrifice everything and everybody!!! Ya turn yourselves inta Archdemons and forget you were part'a mankind!", Dracula glares at her: "And what is man?" he throws down his glass "A miserable pile of secrets.. But enough talk". He stands:" Have at thee..".

 

*SHSHSHSHSHSHSHSHSH!!!* He suddenly turns into a huge black fog!!!! The lit throne room turns utterly pitch-black dark as many bats suddenly immerse from the shadow!!!! Lite suddenly zooms to one and stabs t through: it drops off his blade and forms back into Dracula, who then punched his son through the throne wall and into the hallway!!! Hailey awes in surprise then launched a fireball at him, which he grabs and dispersed, as Cassi jumps at him! The vampire turns to darkness and seeps away from her broadsword and behind Hailey, she tries to freeze him, but he phazes away just as Lite leaps at him and almost hits her! Cassi then rushes to him along with the dhampir, but he easily roundhouse-kicks his son, and slapped the General!!! They both fling away as Hailey rushes him and tries freezing him solid, Cassi staggers up and  brings down her blade! The King of Vampires spills out and down the hallway, Lite suddenly leaps at his face, but Dracula grabs his blade and violently throws it! Lite's pinned to the wall by his sword while his father marched to him, but a icicle suddenly stabs up through his foot! Dracula looks up to see Hailey aiming at him, and tries to get loose, but Lite rip himself off the wall and dropkicks his face!! he staggers back and lifts his head up to see Cassi already winding up the whip; then whip him across his heart! A explosion erupts from the strike and knocks him on all fours!... The others stare in awe, hoping he died... but he gets up: "The Sol... well played. But I am not a mere vampire to be done in by human magics..." he snipes at them as he introduced himself "I am: Damien Dracula Tepes, and I've had enough!!!". He fires a hellish blast at the group, but Hailey takes control of it and tried pushing it back... The General realizes she couldn't destroy it with her blade, (as it heated up too fast) and tries pushing Hailey to help her.. Lite suddenly leas into the fiery blast and pushed it back with his blade, and eventually explodes it and ran Dracula through!!! They slam through the wall and fall through several floors!! Hailey listens carefully.. then says: "I can hear them, come on!", the girls then follow the fighting noises....

 

Meanwhile: Lite an Dracula sword fight, until the latter slaps his blade away: a fist fight ensues, with Dracula easily winning no matter how many strikes he takes.. Only the dhampir starts to bleed as he takes more and more hits... Until his father suddenly throws him through several more floors, Lite slams into a bed.. and staggers up to see Dracula marching to him; his eyes turning deeper and deeper red in wrath as he nears him... "D, dad... y, ya don't wanna do this! T, think of wot mother would say??!" Lite says..  the king of vampires replies angrily "You're just buying time, because you realize the mistake you've mad; stupid boy!!". He reached at Lite, but the dhampir's sword suddenly tears up through the floor! It starts ripping through Dracula's body, but he easily grabs the blade: "And to think you honestly put trust in simple telekinetic abilities to destroy me! That was always your problem, boy: You're Weak!! You ALWAYS were! But your mother wouldn't let me train you to be a man, and now you're nothing. You're retarded in mind and body, you're far too weak to hurt me: so you're trying abilities you learned from me! And it won't work, you're alone; your mother isn't here for me, so she isn't for you.. and now you'll suffer to death for even believing you could stop my vengeance!" he growled as he continues his march and his body heals instantly!.. Lite suddenly leaps up and stakes through his heart with a wood-leg from the bed!!! Dracula coughed blood "Wh, wha... at?!!" he manages to ask... his body can only shudder as magic and physical powers drops in leaps and bounds..!!! The dhampir pushed it in through his back: "I m, made th, this... wh, while y, you were s, saying how we, weak I am! H, how stupid I am... from t, telekinesis!" The King of Vampires starts turning to dust but reached out at his son's head!! The General arrives just in time to see the looming thing reaching at Lite's head; then chops Dracula to pieces!!! His head rolls off but starts to lift up to reanimate onto his quickly rotting body; but Hailey suddenly burns his head and body to nothin: Causing legions of demons to fly out and fall back into the depths of hell: The group stares in horror but non of the evil-spirits can touch them as they're being called back home.... Lite stares in horror as he stares at the few ashes and glowing embers left of his dad...

He sighs in sadness... "I... I wonder if I..., did I do the...." he starts.. The General suddenly retorts "'Did ya do the right thing'? Yeah! That bastards wa...", Hailey holds her arm.. Cassi stops speaking as she says: "What the General means, is.. You did the right thing, yes.. He was your daddy.. So it's okay to feel bad.. but at the same time: he was causing the same pain you went through, to many others... He might've caused this exact situation too, on many others by using the demons to possess people and turning families on each other... You can mourn his death, but realize you saved a many lives, too..". The dhampir looks into her eyes "Thanks... I... I wosn't sure wot to think or feel... After I staked him.. I immediately regretted it... he sounded very weak.... something I never heard before...", Lite then looks outside; the moonlight fades to white as he stairs outside... "I... I'm going back to my own castle.. to heal..." he thought aloud. Cassi then realizes: "Dammit!!! I wa suppose ta get th' guy to tell me more about the fucking demons!" she also thought out loud, Hailey turns towards her "The Archdemons? You're chasing Lucifer's army?". Lite turns towards her, too: "You're goin' after them right afta this!?", Cassi replies in a low roar; "Yeah, normally I'd probably be lookin' for a bed, but those bastards destroyed what little I had left! I have to kill them..." The dhampir smiles "I can tell ya where ta go then: America! That's where th' bastards have utter free roam of th' area, and people openly are possessed by and fuck with demons: they love there with th' Americans! I mean... they WERE in Germany, but the base and shite's there, now!", the General sighs... then smiles sadly "Exactly what I needed... so even if he moves randomly.. I havva better chance to find 'em there.. Thanks..."... She leaves the bedroom... 

Verily: The General heads West in search of a ship or plane.. while Hailey travels with her family again... Lite magically takes control of his father's castle and stops the legions' attacks... Meanwhile: Cassi again travels alone, until she meets up Kai again; and is lead to America with revenge still burning hot inside...

Castle Arc End


Salamanca Arc

 

3-7-XX!!

Verily, verily; Reiner, Merry Kai Aeryssa and Lys travel to the witch's academy. Verily, monsters and armies attack; but they easily destroy them with magic and with their weapons and arrives to their destination quickly and safely:                 

The group arrives in the city's streets; Reiner and Merry awe at the sights... "This is where you live?!" the Paladin asks.. Aerssa giggles "No! This' where I go to school!  Technically, I'm living here for only the next 3 years, so.." The Metropolitan adds "I see... Alright, Kai: Lead the way!". The little-witch interrupts happily "Oh no! You guys already helped enough: I can get back from here!", Reiner laughs "Cool! We were kinda freakin' out since there's alotta people here.. After the crazy stuff that happened on our trip, ya can't trust anybody!". Merry laughs too "But we've been particularly safe? I mean, in between Aeryssa and us, we didn't have too much trouble..", the little-witch hugs Lys "It's because him! He's like our good luck charm!". The Metropolitan smiles wryly "I know you want him to be included in this.. but I can't believe is we had good luck, it was from him...", Aeryssa giggles then explains: Normally we SHOULDN'T of made it so easily, especially with someone we hafta look after. But... we made it safely and got here faster than expected; Lys' good luck! Aren't ya!?" she ends her sentence asking the Cadet this. He smiles happily... Merry still looks unsure... "Alright.. I see what you mean..", Reiner adds "I DO! Maybe the  freak IS good luck!? He made it here alive too, so...". The little-witch then asks "So whatta you 2 gonna do? You're comin' with me anyway to be witches, too? Or you're going back home?".. The paladin replies: "We hafta go back: Merry here wanted to learn from the General and we couldn't jus' up an' leave our home so fast... We'll probably stay to get our energy back, then go later!"... The Metropolitan stares in surprise: "...You said something mature?! And I agree... we SHOULD stay and rest... maybe you could even lead the way back?" she asks...  Reiner laughs "C'mon, I'm chill, but I'm still a grown ass man! Of course I realize we got shit back home we both wanna finish!". Kai suddenly yells "Hey! Nobody said anything to me since we got back! Not even a 'Thank you'!", The Paladin laughed "Sorry! Thanks buddy!", Merry giggles "Yes... We're very sorry!". Aeryssa does too: "Yeah, we didn't mean ta forget you!", Lys only stares at the fairy as he says: "Good, now that that's done: I gotta go find Cass!". The Metropolitan tilts her head in curiosity: "Why do you need to find her? Is something wrong?"... Kai glares in concern: "Yeah... when she left.. it wasn't jus so Aeryssa could take care of Lys... I'm gonna make sure she's okay... bye you guys!" he ends up saying cheerfully! He flies away as they wave bye... Reiner and Merry say bye to the little-witch too, and leave …. The little-witch holds Lys' hand and leads him through the city streets: "They were nice! Comin' all th' way here with us! Now that we're back, it'll be easy to find the academy and fix your mark: it didn't wanna be sealed like the other did.."... she feels something wet hit her hand..  Aeryssa turns to see Lys looking back where they walked from... "Lys??" she asks.. he turns back around with HUGE tears streaming down his face... "OMG! Did I hurt you?!" she asks... He moves his mouth... but barely any noise comes from him... he then looks up... She watches him for a while.. "Awww... you miss our friends??! Don't cry, Lys!" she says softly. She continues to lead him away as she reminds the Cadet: "They're safe and able to take care of their selves now.. I guess you'd know this if you were in your right-mind.. But now, I guess you're feeling what I do, deep down inside..."...

 

Hours later, they arrive at the Cave of Salamanca. It's a huge academy built up from the cave and now has many towers, a courtyard and is hidden away from the public... Aeryssa leads Lys to the academy door "We coulda got here alot faster, but taking you on my broom woulda been dangerous! But we're here now... Haaah... I wonder if Ms. Endora's.." she shook her head "Nevermind, she wants me to be the best witch I can be! Not worry!"... She happily and determined took Lys into the academy with her...

Meanwhile: in her dorm room: her friends are reading through spellbooks... when one looks up from the pages.. "Syrup... do you think she'll be back soon?"... the other witch looks up from her grimoire.. "No.. Aeryssa's stupid... It'll take a while for her to get back, Latte..". The witch stood up and angrily replies "She isn't! ...She's just... excitable..." he finishes in a unsure tone... Syrup smirked "You don't even believe there's anything going on upstairs! Ha!".. Latte prepares to defend her once more... when Aeryssa herself busts into the room! "Hey girls!!!" she cheers! "Aryssa!!" Latte says in surprise, then runs to hug her... Syrup has a warm smile on her face... but quickly switched out to a neutral glare... "You're back alreday?"... Aeryssa frowns as she quickly turns away from hugging her friend "What's that suppose tamean!!? I just needed a quick catch-up class and that's it!". Syrup almost retorts... when Latte steps back from holding the girl... "Wh, who's THAT!!?" she asks in fear.. Lys walks into the room with them...  Syrup and Latte stare in curiosity and disturbance respectively as Aeryssa replies: "This' my new friend: Lys! He used to be a Cadet in a army or somethin' But he's struck with madnes, now!".. Syrup starts tpoward him "R, really!!!?", the littel-witch replies: "Yeah! Look! He has the mark of the beast on him.. but: it wasn't a voluntary stamp so that means it's curable!! ...Well... I kinda cured one mark..".. The other two girls atre in surprise "YOU DID!!!???" they in unison. Aeryssa replies as she looks over her shoulder at Lys.. "I did... Thanks to Ms. Endora.. It won't work on the other person... but This mark is working with the madness infecting Lys..."... Syrup thought aloud "I wonder if he has black blood, too!!!?", the little-witch continues as (not hearing her friend...) "It's sad too, because madness usually makes people act on every urge or feeling that pops up.. But Lys' been perfectly sweet... even more gentle than a guy would normally act..."... as she says this the Cadet's feeling her up from behind... Syrup laughs as Latte stares in terror...




 

3-27-XX!!

 

In the few weeks Aeryssa started taking care of Lys, she verily hast learned to watch and protect the Cadet and others. Her having to defend her own and his actions hast made her somewhat overprotective and cling unto the day where she'd be able to free Lys of his mark... Thus.. Because of her clinging closer and closer to the Cadet, she offendeth her friends and girlfriend... One day; Aeryssa walks the halls of Salamanca in a angry huff: "I wasn't doin' anything wrong! I can't believe she'd actually think that! It's like tryna do anythin' for yourself or anyone else is wrong! You're suppose ta be a slave all th' time!?" she thought as she nears her dorm... Lys then walks out and smiles at her... She angrily says "It's your fault! I don't know why you're smiling!"... the Cadet backed away from the doorway... she stomps pass him ...then stops... "Dang... it's not your fault... It's jus' that my friends are avoiding me and Dairy's probably actually cheating on me, now..."... Aeryssa turns towards him "Sorry..." she apologizes... Lys suddenly reaches to her face... The little-witch's surprised at the expression he makes... Tears roll down his cheeks.. but his face itself never changes from it's curious stare... "You feel sorry for me? Or... at least you're trying to say it?" she asks softly... She then leads him into her room and picks up the grimoire: "Alright, I hafta remember, this' for you... So far you've been my best friend; even though you're crazy..." Aeryssa says with a sad smile... She then leads him back out into the halls and hears witches gossiping about something... it sounds like it's about a teacher, but the little-witch leaves to study... "I don't have time to see what they're talkin' about; I think I'm comin' onna breakthrough! I can't break the mark or even numb it.. but what if I can alter it?" she thought out loud... Lys looks excited upon hearing her idea.. despite not being able to understand it..

 

4-30-XX!!

Aeryssa has worked hard along with confectionary, and has went through grimoires and tomes in search of way to alter the Mark of the Beast...  Because of this, she didn't hear a lot of events going on around her... until now.. "I think I got it! But... I need a source.. Regular magics can't affect the Mark... I'd need something else.." the little-witch thought out loud as she walks the halls alone... She then notices a familiar face... "Ms. Meat!!?", the scientist turns towards her "Aeryssa… how nice to see you again." she greets her. The little-witch runs up to her "I didn't know you were back! Why didn't you say anything!?".. The teacher explains: "Well, I have a lot of work to do for Salamanca and my own private research. I was looking for you, but never could take time off specifically to find where you were and talk.", Aeryssa replies "! Sorry about that... I probably woulda noticed you, but I've been working real hard lately!". The teacher snickered "I love how you always make me laugh! Working hard..." he snickers... The little-witch retorts "I have!! Why is that so hard to believe!?". The teacher clears her throat and asks "Alright, okay... what have YOU worked on?"... Aeryssa turns away "I'll show you; follow me!" she says in anger as she stomped to her dorm room... The teacher's surprised as she opens the door: "Where's your friends? And who's that??" she asks... The little-witch replies proudly "This is who I've been working on! Lys! He used to be a soldier inna army, but he got struck with madness and this!!", she hurries to the Cadet and lifts his curly hair: The teacher awed at the mark on his forehead as Aeryssa continues "The mark of the Beast! But I think I found a way to get rid of it!". The teacher smiled proudly "I'm impressed; I'd never expect a failure to tackle  something so difficult!", the little-witch yells "I'm... Wait... I'mma failure?!" she ends up asking sadly... The teacher replied "Not a failure, I meant to say someone who was failing their grades before I left...".. Aeryssa sighs and starts to lead Lys out of the room "I got everything back up, now! Well... don't look at my grades, but at least I'm not flunking!"... she goes back to the study as  the teacher giggled "Well, this is worth skipping lunch to see!" she exclaims as she creates a small cup of spaghetti.. "I'll settle for this to help you!". Aeryssa looks over her shoulder and says "Thanks! I think I'm close to somethin' now!", Confectionary comes in as she finishes this: "She is, Taffy.. I never seen someone wok so hard.". The scientist turns around "Another face I haven't seen a lot, and where've you been?", the other teacher replies "I've been working hard too, when they said you were coming; I got a workload at the same time and couldn't be back in weeks. Poor Aeryssa here had to go through the tomes herself for a month, I think...". The little-witch turns towards them "But I'm close to a answer now!", Taffy smirks "Well lessee if it's a safe one.. We're still dealing with Satanic stuff here, you'll need all the help you can get!"... Both teachers start to search with the little-witch...

5-11-XX!!

Aeryssa hasn't found a answer yet and is starting to lose hope at curing Lys... Though her teachers are both far too excited to let her spirits die down; they support her greatly in the face of her losing time with her friends and having strange rumors spread about her.... One day, the little-witch nears dairy's dorm room as she thought... "Confectionary's right.. there's no reason why I can't fix all of this! Dairy's been avoidin' me because she's afraid to catch something that'll break her heart. But if I show her EXACTLY what's happening, then she'll have no reason to be suspicious!" she thought as she nears the door... It's opened slightly and a bedsprings can be heard...? She opens it slightly and sees Dairy with a guy and several other witches...!! Aeryssa quietly ran away back to her dorm!!! "What was that?! ...I sh... shoulda went in there, but... That was too much! ...I guess I'd feel bad if I wasn't so freaked out: when did she get like... 5 or 6 se partners?!" she thought out loud... Not noticing her friends were currently in there... "5 or 6 what!!?" Syrup asks excitedly as she held Lys's arm! Latte's face glowed bright red "Wh, what did you see!?"... The little-with stares at them... "um... You didn't hear that..."... Syrup jumps down from her bed and ran to her "Listen, tell me! We're best friends, right!!? I'd LOVE to tear down that uppity, 'perfect' pieces of crap!!!". Aeryssa retorts "After you tell me what you were doin' to Lys?!"... her friend hides her needle "Touche, Areyssa, Touche…". Latte walks to her, too "Syrups' just angry because all the rumors were started by her... She wants to avenge you...", the witch herself angrily replies "No I don't!! Dairy's mean to everyone! If Aeryssa didn't try to be gay with her, should would've been just as bad with her!". The little-witch sighs and asks in a upset tone "What am I suppose to do about this? I feel bad.. but at the some time.. I only don't want you to tell so we can still be on good terms..."... Latte replies: "That's because you're a nice person.  You feel bad because you want her to be nice.. but... You shouldn't force yourself into situations you don't feel comfortable with... You like her, but you never went further than flattering dairy...", Syrup adds "Plus you don't know her THAT well! Heheheheheh, nobody knows she's a freak! But now..."... Aeryssa interrupts her "Nobody will! If she wantsa do that, that's fine! I'll just spend my time with you guys and Lys!" she says in determination... then asks "Wait, I thought Lys creeped you out, why're you in here with him?". The little-witch looks at Syrup... then says "Alright, wait.. I know why you're here...", Latte then explains: "We still have to get our stuff and.. Lys only um...gropes you, I think... He notices us, but he's like pet now...". Syrup turns towards him: "Shake!", the Cadet shakes her hand... "See?" she says. Aeryssa grabs his hand and pulls him to her "Yeah, that's how you got him to sit still long enough for you to stab him!" She walks away "Thanks for the advice!" she says as she takes him away... "I need ta keep you in a safe place when I need thinking time... I can't have her pricking you..." she looks over her shoulder at Lys "I bet that General kept you safer in the wild than I can in here!". 




 


Happy Halloween

Lys stares into her Aeryssa's eyes for a few moments... then quickly looks down as he gets hot all over "Wh, where am I?" he asks in a alarmed but cautious tone; she replies softly realizing right away he IS afraid of her... "You're in Salamanca! Well, the Magic Academy of Salamanca!". She giggled happily "Do you know who I am? Do you remember me!?"... Lys looks up but is unable to stare directly into her excited eyes "... Aeryssa?..." he says low... She cheers "Yes! I did it! I brought you back! I kinda expected you'd forget a little, but your remember me! You're not crazy anymore!!". Lys awes at her... and asks "I was crazy??..."... She laughs and grabs his hand "Not crazy... More so... sick? C'mon!".. Aeryssa explains some of what happen until she leads him to her dorm room: "..And this is where ya slept!" she says! Lys stares in awe "I... I slept with you girls? Id probably need to stay somewhere else.." he explains wryly.. She laughs "If ya say so, I don't care where ya sleep, though!"

7-7-XX!!

Verily, Aeryssa re-introduces Lys to everybody; and the Cadet starts to remember the events while in the army... But huge pieces of his memory are still missing.. So Lys records what he does nd what he remembers, in doing this; befriends Aeryss'a friends, too.. but a tension suddenly comes over him... Now, Lys walks with Aeryssa to class.. "I was like: 'Lys probably doesn't need ta be in school' and the teacher start getting mad and junk..." she finishes.. Lys replies "You might be right; I don't know how long I was mad.. but I'm probably over this academy's enrollment age..". Aeryssa stops "Wha…. Y, you? HA! You look so young, though!", He then notices.. "She looks familiar..??" Lys mumbles as he stares at another witch.. Aeryssa turns to see who he's looking at "What is..." she starts, then calls out: "HEY KIM!!!!". The blonde suddenly turned towards them "What do you want!!!? You scared the doodoo outta me!" Kim yells, the duo walks to her: "My buddy Lys wanted to talk to ya!" Aeryssa explains... The Cadet gasped "W, wait I didn't mean to call her...!" he starts, when they hear a teacher: "Stop distracting Ms. Durian and come to class Ms. Gumdrop!!" her voice echoed across the halls... Aeryssa sighs "Awww... I wanted to see whata army vet would want with you! Don't scare her too bad, Lys!" she ends up laughing as she leaves... The Blonde-witch then asks "Alright, so what is it? I'm on break, so..."...  He sighs.. "Um... Were you in.... (shit... what was  the name?...) Legion of rebels??", Kim replied "Yeah... Wait a minute; lemme use my powers..." a ungodly glow come from her... "Yeah.. yeah... I'm getting faces and names. I don't remember you, but magic does! You're that Cadet the higher-ups were picking on! HA!!" she laughs... Lys replies: "You WERE in it! What happened to everybody? My mind goes blurry just before... I remember being here!", Kim laconically explains: "Satan's private army or the Archdemons came and took the prince guy with them; he joined them willingly, and sacrificed everybody under his rule... As soon as he said he would,  I teleported away, so I have no idea what the demons EXACTLY did to everybody...".. Lys ' eyes widened as he asks "Y, you could warp away!? Why didn't you save anyone else?!", she makes a soured-face: "Why would I? That's stupid! I only had magic for me: and I'm lucky enough to have a photographic memory... It's rare to find anyone that can warp anywhere: Magic-user or human, and I wasn't gonna waste my time trying to save a buncha peons!". The Cadet awes... then backs away "Alright.. thanks for telling me..." she leaves as he thought out loud "She let everybody die?!... she didn't even try to save the innocent there... I understand she has limits, but she let the helpless die, too..."... A creepy feeling starts to come over him..

10-31-XX!!

The next few months, Lys slowly but surely felt more and more tense as remembers the witches and wizards that attacked the army... Plus, seeing the attitudes of the witches there; Lys' hatred for them and magic in general, grew... Though he's thankful to Aeryssa for saving him, her constant talking also started to grate on his mind... He had no choice but to stay though, as in-spite of his anger and distrust; he couldn't go by himself.. and couldn't find Cassi without help... On Halloween night, Lys helps out with decorating as he awaits Aeryssa to return from cramming... "Here you go!" Latte says as she hands a streamer to him.. Lys takes it and wraps it around the stand then winces in pain "Ah, my wrist... Recording whatever I did's staring to come back on me.."... a creeping feeling came over him as he sees the many eyeballs in jars and on posters, all seemingly staring at him... "..." Lys starts to remember the Black Moon, until Syrup says "Hey! Space Cadet: get back to work! You're the only thing staying here for free!"... He sighs and starts back decorating.. until he nears a food-stand ways off from the others.. "Shit... I can vaguely see people being eaten by demons in my memories.. And the witches are all celebrating the demons, too..."... he thought, until Aeryssa scared him "HEY LYS!!!" he jumps in horror and sees her smiling blissfully: "I finally finished cramming, so let's have some fun!" she says, and grabs his hand to lead him away... when Taffy calls out "Aeryssa, Lys!". The Little-witch turns around "Ms. Taffy! Happy Samhain!!", the teacher cheered back "Happy Samhain to you, too!". She waves her cape and teleports a parade-float by her! Aeryssa awes at it: "You're in th' parade!!?" she asks.. the teacher replies "No, but I'm powering the thing! See??!" she casts inside the float: lights suddenly glow from it and a ghost balloon suddenly inflates! Aeryssa awes at it "Wow!! Electricity magic?", the teacher shook her head and explains "No, I learned Technomancy a while ago! When I left the school, I was sharing it with underpowered nations who still use old nuclear plants and dangerous pollution solutions for power. In fact: I'm launching a fireworks-missile soon to commemorate Technomancy being used all over Romania! ".. The little-witch cheers "You're the coolest, Ms. taffy!" the science-witch laughs proudly as Lys watches in fear...

Later, during the events... Lys is further tormented as he sees actual souls and demons on some of the parade floats... the games also had many Satanic references that the Witches were comfortable with... only excluding the Mark of the Beast... Still stays by Aeryssa who seems to be excited to have him there, until later... he hurries back to the entrance of the Academy: "I have to get out of here... I have no idea how, but I need to plan something... Surely there's someplace safer than this... I let myself relax because I'mma creep surrounded by girls.. but, I need concentrate o leaving!..." he thought as he grabs the door.. but Aeryssa cheers from behind "Lyyyyyyys! Cmon! You're gonna miss everything!", he turns towards her "I... I can't go back...". She notices the fear in his eyes.. "Why not?!! What's wrong?!" he asks as she nears him... Lys explains "This... it doesn't feel right... none of it does... I can't stay here... the demons, the ghosts... magic... you witches... It's everything I saw kill in the army... Magic's evil!"... She gasps.. then smiles "I know bad stuff happened to you before; but Magic's beautiful! Don't blame magic, or us; blame who uses it for wrong!" she explains cheerfully! Lys turns away "This is wrong... I... can't...", she hurries around in front of him: "Lys, you can't blame magic! You can't be mad at us for what happened!!" she says in anger... The Cadet replies "But you... they, they all act like Kim did! It's almost like a hivemind thing! You're doing whatever you want, and you don't care about what you're doing to yourselves or others! The General did magic ONCE and only to save someone, she didn't even remember the spell; she had  to written down... and..." he smiles warmly as he remembers her face... "She saved that kid... I still remember when we were in that cave... she was so different then.. I could see who she really was under all that killing...".. Aeryssa felt a sense of jealousy wash over as he smiles.. then interrupts "You miss that creepy lady that KILLED people!!!? She used magic once and to save someone, but we use magic all the time to save alotta people! Who cares about demons and what happened!? You hafta move on, you can't sit here being scared of them and hoping some serial killer's gonna save you!". Lys suddenly grabs her neck!!!! She doesn't reach at his hands strangely as he chokes her...

"St... stop it... L, Lys!" she coughs... He angrily replies "No.. I see none of you care.. You're just as evil as the others.. It's my fault for thinking you looked like humans; But you actually don't care about others at all!..". Aeryssa starts to shudder "Pl, please..." she holds his arms... Lys angrily stares into her watery eyes... they shine and tears flow from them, he also notices she never tried to use magic... then loosen his hold and looks away "Shit...". 
 


All Saints Day

11-1-XX!!

Verily, verily; the next day... Lys wast unable to speak to Aeryssa and confused deeply... sorrow was in him and he loathed what he did.. at the same time.. he couldn't stand the academy anymore, and decided to go.. unable to stand that he almost killed the person who saved him... He gathers his clothes.. only what he had on his back and the clothes he had on when he got there, and his device that he only used to type hhis memories.. "I'll tell her I'm goung... It'll be dumb to just go... I'll at least tell her I'm going to join the General agin, today..." he thought out loud... As he walks the halls, he noticed the many witches around them: like before... They're cute, some are friendly and the enviroment feels warm...  but... He still remebers the decorations that resembled  the Black Moon event... And he sees Miff staring at him.. her eyes seem to go straight through his soul... and he runs... 

He goes outside to get fresh air, and quickly moves forward without looking up... until he overhears dairy "So... I'm sorry.." she finishes, Aeryssa replies "It's fine... I'm sorry I strung you along... I didn't mean to.. it's just.. I REALLY wanted you to like me, so..". The English-Witch smiles and hugs her "It's alright... at least you actually never cheated... whle I... You only been nice o me the entire time.." she says sadly... The little-witch squeezes her close: "It's alright, like you said; 'you never cheated' either. You were with all those people, butonly because I did that to you; you were lonely..."... Dairy let's go of her.. "Yea... only a little..."... Lys sighs as he thought: "That's the reason I stayed, seeing this... made me me feel calm.. and possibly wanting to forget everything.. but...", he turns to leave when Aeryssa notices him: "Lys!" she calls softly.. He turns to see her and Dairy coming to him... The English-Witch then asks "Is this him? He looks different in his eyes...", Aeryssa replies "Yes, this' Cadet: Lys! I showeed everyone that I removed the Madness, except..." she ends sheepishly... Dairy smiles wryly "Ah... It's nice to meet you...", Lys smiles sheepishly too "Uh... Nice to meet you, too...". Aeryssa then says "Lys, I've been looking for you all morning.. I want to apologize for last night..".. the Cadet replies "!!? But I...! I'm sorry... the sounds stupid after what I jus' did.. and I can't repay you for what you've done.. b, but I.. I have to go find the General... hse helped me until you got me, so...". The little-witch steps closer "No... You can't go by yourself; besides you can...", she interrupted by the sight of many people coming into the courtyard! Taffy and Confectionary leads the way and notice the three in the middle of the field!

"Aeryssa, Dairy... Lys... I can assume evrything's okay now?" the scientist asks, the little-witch cheers "Yeah! Right Lys!?".. The Cadet replies wryly "Yeah..."... Confectionary giggles "I'm glad!". Taffy then announces ludly: "Now that you're all here: you can witness my latest creation!", she waves her hand, ccausng a tower in the acdemy to open and relaese a magic-missile!  The other witches ooh and awes at it as Aeryssa smiles happily "She's doing it today!!? Awesome!" she cheers! The scientist smirked happily upon hearing that comment and continues: "I built this magic-missile to work with the technology in Salamanca and the rest of the nation. One it launches into orbit, it'll release a signal that will connect everybody's technological-power to this magic source! Then we won't need to rely on pulltion to power our devices and we can show the world how positive magic can truly be!". The witches all clap until the missile gave off a loud whistle!!!!! 

Lys and the witches stare in terror and curisoity repectively as eyes grow from all over the missile!! The Cadet himself now steps back as traumatizing memories resurface, until he hears a demonic voice! "HahaHahahaAaaa! Thanksyou SOOOOOOOO much, Taffy! You've no idea what you've done for me!!!! 'Your magic' has given me a way to recruit many more soldiers in a few moments, without having to make another moon!" the Penis shaped Archdemon screamed!! It's demonic body combines with the missile then gives infernal steam as he starts to launch, burning much of the Academy and courtyard; the witches are only protected by a magic barrier Confectionary casts, as the Archdemon launched away! Taffy stares and asks in panic "What was THAT!!?", Lys frowns as blood pours from the A on his forehead: "The mark's telling me, like always.. except I can hear and understand it, thanks to what Aeryssa did; He's the Archdemon: Śiśna, the Greed. Like all of them, he's hear to increase hell's range on Earth....". Aeryssa gasps at the blood pouring from her mark as Taffy then asks "Alright, does the mark say how to stop him?!", the Cadet replies "We'd need something Heavenly... but... I, it's saying we can seal it if we can get in range...". Confectionary glared at the sky "Then we need to get a broom and get up there!", Taffy retorts in horror "We can't... no one can go THAT fast... Even if we could; you can all feel it, right? He's draining our magic!". Aeryssa steps out in front of the crowd and says: "So what!? We can do this! The Witch Queen's giving us our magic, so we always have at least a little, right?! Let's band together and find a way to get up there and seal that jerk!"... the witches all stare in fear, quietly.. until Taffy again spoke up: "Maybe... I can use some of the missile's left over parts and make broom that could go as fast as the Missile... demon thing... Then whoever knows how to seal it, can go?" she ends up asking Aeryssa... The little-witch smiles happily "If you're asking, of course I know how to! I saw the sealing thing in that Grimoire!". Confectionary then says "Alright, then we just need to get her up and going!", her BFF replies "We'll need several other witches, too: the broom's going to be big, because of the many parts it needs.. and someone's going have to control each part until it gets to the end... You know, like when a rocket sheds off it's other pieces..  But whoever's on the ends should have enough magic to land safely.. and if not, I'll help!"... Latte and Syrup step forward, Aeryssa smiles happily, until dairy does too and says : "C'mon, let's all do this together!  This should be easy, right??"... The little-witch replies "Yeah, we just need one more person..."
 




 

Verily, the broom's built quickly from the left over parts; and 6 witches mount the huge missile like thing. And thus, upon taking off: it's scene that Lys ist set close to the tip of the broom, cluthing cloely to the thing, so as not to fall... Aeryssa cheers as they zoom through the sky!!! "YEAH!!!!! This is SO much better than any ride at any amusement park!!!", Syrup sighed "Focus, Aeryssa, we could still all die if you don't perform the spell!". Dairy adds "She's right, maybe we could ride later for fun, but now there's a demon possessed missile flying over Transylvania!".. Aeryssa sighs "Alright, alright... I know!" she looks at Lys squeezing the broom tightly and with a disturbed expression on his face "You're havin' fun at least, right?!", he barely says "No... I...". She laughs until they see a dot in the distance!! "OMG, that's it!!!", Latte then hears the back of the broom breaking off "It's almost time! The rocket function's going on!"... Syrup suddenly flies off from the broom "Good luuuu-uuuck..." she says in a sarcastic tone... Aeryssa huffs "I don't think she WANTS us to win...". Latte falls off and flies down "Please be carefule, Aeryssa..." she warns ... The little-witch waves at her as she descends, Dairy feels her part sectioning off: "Ah... I wish i could be on the tip with you.. after everything, it feels as though we should've did this together..." she says... Aeryssa smiles and starts "Awwww... I wish we could, too... but There's a reason wh...". They suddenly here LOUD cackling!!! "I SHALL HAVE iT aLLLL!!! My section of hell, and this piece of earth, No... Once I explode, I'll take EVERYThing With Me!!!" Śiśna laughs, Aerussa stares at the archdemon and asks "What did he mean by that??".. Lys replies in terror "He has warped sense of Greed, just like all the Archdemons havva warped sense of the 7 deadly sins... He wants to take everything in the explosion! All of the demons are using people to fulfill their wants, like he's doing with the missile..."... Dairy falls off "Ah... so they're all twisting love of something, and even further the sin itself..." she realizes aloud and flies away... They home in on the demon as Aeryssa smirks "Alright Śiśna!! Ya want it all, come and get it!!!!", the missile suddenly rockets away, and slingshots back around to them as the Archdemon laughed "YEAH!!!! GiVE It To MEEEEEE!!!!". Lys shudders "Y, you got th' spell??!", she replies "Of course!" and casts... noting happens "Shoot! He already drained me!? Well then, time for my back up plan!" she says confidently! Lys' mark glows brightly and she casts! Śiśna starts to shrink quickly, then explodes into fireworks!!!!!! The broom then dies out and the 2 drop!!!! Lys could only stare in terror, untl he warps on the ground... "Wh.. how...??????" he asks... Taffy scoffs "I SAID I'd save you if I could! When the demon disappeared, our magic immediately came back!"... Aeryssa cheers "WE did it!!!!" everybody starts cheering as Lys still holds his heart and shudders .....

 

11-8-XX!!

Verily, Lys and the other witches learned that the Archdemon died in the fireworks, despite Aeryssa casting a seal spell. The little-witch explains that it it might of been because she used Lys/her emblem as a power source when she ran out of magic, thusly the witches lived peacefully as the mana/magic spread through the area caused life to become easier in this time... Lys though, still felt uncomfortable and goes off by himself.... "Alright, I have to... I can't stay longer..." the Cadet thought one evening... he goes outside and towards the city... when he heras "Lys!!" he turns to see Aeryssa running to him "Where're ya going? Aren't you gonna stay for your present??". Lys replies in question "What do you mean??", she pulls out a guaze.. "I remembered you said your wrist hurt, and how you dislike magic, so... we got you this! Everybody signed their names on it.. it's KINDA enchanted, but just with healing magic! Ya know, so you can get better soon...". The Cadet takes it... "Thanks..." he says as he tries to wrap on his left wrist... "you're doing it wrong..." she says ad starts to gently wrap it for him... "Lys... I understand you wnat to find your friend.. but shouldn't you stay here? The General only wants to get revenge.. you're not like Cassiopiaea..".. Lys replies "I need to... Everybody in the army treated me like garbage, except her... and even afterwards, when I became useless to her... she made sure I was safe... I have to find her... Plus... I can't stay here even if she was fine... The magic.. witches... it all reminds me of that day...". She finishes wrapping his wrist as he moves his fingers... "Thanks again..." he says, and turns to leave... She watches him... "Lys..", he stops.. she then asks "You really need to go??"... Lys replies "Yeah.. see you later..."... The little-witch watches him leave... she could tell from his eyes and body-movement he's terrified, but... felt guilty for staying with the witches as well as terrified... 

She rushes back to the academy and finds Confectionary "Confectionary! I, I have to go!!!" she explains! The teacher arches her eyebrow "What dya mean??". Aeryssa explains "I'm going with Lys! He's going to find his friend and... I havfta go with him! He can;t fight.. he's too kind to actually hurt anybody to save himself!".. Cofectionary replies in curiosuty: "Wait... Didn't Taffy say he tried to STRANGLE you????! Unless she's lying, you're goin' with someone like THAT!!?"... Aeryssa smiles as she starts to blush slightly... "Like I told her: he couldn't kill me, even though I wasn't going to use magic... The same reason I wa able to stop that demon with a sealing spell, is the same reason i was able to alter his mark and why I'm following him, now..." she explains.. Confectionary stares in surprise "Wait... you?? With him?!", the little-witch exaplians "At fisrt it was just as a pet amittedly, then as a friend... after he tried to choke me... I realized he had many problems, seeing him realize this too and how he treated me as compared to how messed up he is; it made me realize he DID feel the same way, but only showed it when he was Mad..."... She turn away and skips after lys... her mentor calls out "Are you sure, Aeryssa!!?", the little-witch replies "Yes, I love, love love him!". She then comes after the cadet...

"Lys!!" she calls out again! He turns twoards her with a sense of relief somewhat in his eyes... "What are you doing here??" he asks in surprise.. She giggles "I'm gonna follow you! Let's both go and find cassiopiaea!!", he steps back "Ar, are you sure? It'll get dangerous!" he asks. She laughs "I know, but I got magic! that's why I'm here! You don't like it, but technically I'm using to help you, so it's not like before; we could totaly work together, especially with my emblem on your head! This'll be easy, now let's go! I already havva packing spell cast, too; so all our stuff's with us whenever I call for it!"... Lys remembers exactly how much she talks, and some of his relief goes as he walks away, and she follows, still talking...

Salamanca Arc End


Elfen Magic Arc

3-28-X!!!

Verily, verily... 

; Lys and Aeryssa travels together to find Cassi, but findest from fairies and from Aeryssa's clairvoyance that there's a great evil blotting her location. Thus, The Cadet searches for the archdemons: the next step in finding the General who seeks vengeance against them.. Verily, verily... Aeryssa's future-sight reveals that the closest Archdemon is in Asia, and the partners travel East; and have now reached Kiev... Though, this hast been strange unto him and her: verily The Cadet tries his best to concentrate on this mission as the witch tries to make him quit his search... "Lys.. can we stop? I'm so hungry!" Aeryssa complains, the Cadet replies "Weren't you making food this whole time?". She explains as they head to the station around Volodymyr "I was warping food I magically-packed from the academy; then I was usin' food from places we passed, but we've been out for a while!", Lys looks over his shoulder and asks in surprise "W, wait... you, you were stealing?!". Aeryssa replies "No, I can make money appear from usin' the few precious metals left underground or warping lost money in place of the food! But There's no were to do that at now...", the Cadet sighs... then notices a restaurant; "Alright.. let's get something before the train leaves... I'm so glad they have signs in English everywhere..." he ended up thinking out loud as he looks at the building's sign... Inside, they find a few people there and sit,  a free waiter noticed them right away and immediately and nears them.. "Vhat's your order?" he asks... Lys makes a fist and says "I'll have bread and noodles if...".. the man leans closer, indicating he can't hear him.. Aeryssa then says "He said he wants bread and pasta, and I wanna Burger!" the man writes the order down as he leaves... The Cadet sighs and stares at the table... she notices the sad look in his eyes.. "What's wrong?!" Aeryssa asks.. Lys sighs "Nothing... I'm alright...". The little-witch frowns "C'mon, don't lie; we're travelling together: we're all we have right now.." she explained... The Cadet replies "I... I'm just upset that I can't speak properly to anyone...", Aeryssa tilts her head in curiosity "What dya mean?! I understand you!" she says. Lys then explains: "Because you've gotten used to me.. You probably won't notice how I can barely speak aloud when around others... I barely spoke to anyone in the army, except Cassi, too... I always hafta raise my own voice because by default.. I'm apparently someone no one understands...", Aeryssa replies "You just need ta raise your voice! It's like you're holding back... Are you afraid of sounding mean or something?".. The Cadet sighs and answers "Kinda…. I remember when I was living with my parents; my dad would fuss a lot, mom said he was turning us into men..  but nobody wanted to talk to him... myself; I want nothing to do with him.. So I vowed to try being someone people could approach.. that backfired though...", Aeryssa awes.. then says "You ARE approachable, and I understand how that would've been bad in a army... But now you can you be as open as you want!"... Lys replies: "I can't.. remember; you said I was mute when I was Mad... By default; this feels natural, trying to be loud feels strange.. To tell you the truth, I'd feel more comfortable if I couldn't be found and I could get what I need without troubling others...", Aeryssa smiles sheepishly.. "AH... um, uh... I understand you; I understand what you're saying easy! I'm with ya now, so you know you're not any trouble to me! S, so Do... do you feel comfortable around me?". Lys' eyes widened... when the waiter arrived with their food! He quickly prayed and starts eating as the waiter asked if they wanted drinks, too.. Because of the awkwardness of finding how Lys felt, Aeryssa didn't bring it back up that day...

 

 

Meanwhile: The General arrives in Shore Boulevard, Philadelphia off a pirated cruise ship! She leaps off the edge and onto the cement... "I hope everybody's okay! You didn't have to steal that.." Kai says to her, the General replies "There was no otha ships comin' here, and THIS was th' only one! And you said North America, they were goin' South; I hadta take it! Besides, everybody's fine!". She goes forward and notices the area's emptied?? Very few people can be seen as compared to other nations.. and even then, they move very lethargically... "This' creepy... I guess th' demons really AREA here..." she says.. Kai almost replies when he sees her break a store window! "General, what're y..." he starts, she pulls out a compass: "Itsa gift shop and I'll need one of these.. Now how do I find the bastard!!?". Kai sighs and turns towards the west: "West of here.. in different directions are 3 different portals, I think they're coming in and out at will through these; from the feel of it: these are also used as bases... If we go to either... the center of America... Los Angeles or Washington D.C.  then we can find how to get to the Archdemons if they're not waiting for us already...", Cassi smirks "Awesome, then I'll jus' follow this... I know there's no workin' GPS around here...". She goes to a car and breaks open the door, the fairy stared in surprise as she gets in ad shoves a knife in the ignition, turning it on! "General! That's stealing!", she replied "Come on, ya think these morons givva shit??!". He looks at a nearby civilian.. then flies in with her: "You're right... You're the only 1 I sense alive here: everybody else feels less alive than livestock..." he explained.. Cassi smirks "See? Killin' the demons will probably save 'em, so takin' some wheels ain't so bad!" she says as she speeds off!!

Meanwhile; that night.. Lys and Aeryssa rides a train to their next destination... The cadet watches her sleep in his lap... "Don't do this to me..." he thought as he stares at her perfectly-calm/content face...
 




4-22-X!!!

Lys and Aeryssa are closing in on their goal; despite running into a few monsters (and both being unwilling to kill) they made it to Kamchatka after sometime... "It's not dangerous!" Aeryssa retorts to Lys.. the partners have  argued somewhat randomly after their train ride, especially with the stress of monsters around... The Cadet replies "It is; Magic brought the monsters here, right? You said your teacher  explained to you that there's other worlds besides ours: and tey NATURALLY wouldn't crossover, except... something Magical happened!", the little-witch walks ahead of him and turns towards him "Then you're sayig it's hurting your arm!?"... Lys stares in confusion... until she reminds him: "You're guaze's enchanted!". He replies "I'll... take it off.., I probably healed, and I only needed a normal one!" he starts taking the guaze off as she replied: "You used it to help us get away from the monsters!". Lys replies "I shouldn't.. it's gonna come back to bite me... Like...", he gets it off and tursns his wrist... Aeryssa coos rght away at seeing him in pain.. "Stop, put it back on!" she says... Lys starts "But.. I", she quickly walks to him and wraps it back; she does a upset sigh as she says "You didn't mind it helping us eat and get away from danger, I even use it for bathroom stuff when we're not in civilization.. Magic isn't wrong...".. Lys sighs as he realizes this... "Yeah... Even the General used magic before... I can't remeber the spell, but it DID help then.. maybe in some instance it helps?", Aeryssa replies "It helps in every instance! The Witch Queen produces magic everywhere so we can all use it to make thing's easy! Life can be better; if we jus' do it! ...I mean believe in it!". Lys gets hot all over.. then shook it off "Alright, forget it... It's just... Demons used magic.. I... I can't help but be scared..." he says, she leads him towards Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky ahead "Don't be afraid! We're using it, now! Not the demons! It can be beautiful, if we use it the right way!".

 

Meanwhile; Cassi nears Kansas in a truck. Kai wakes up from sleeping on her shoulder and notices where they are; "C, Cassio.. General!!!"... he flies around in front of her (yet out of her view, so she won't crash) "Did you drive all night!!!? That's dangerous! You've been moving for weeks; you'll need to go to sleep soon!". Cassi replies "I'm fine! I jus' need ta get there: beides playin' Grand theft Auto in real life's fun as shit!!", he flies in front of her eyes "What is that?! I thought that was a crime? Nevermind: This isn't a game at all! You're going to burn out before you get to Lebanon!", the General sighed in annoyance; "Get th' fuck outta th' way! I'm fine, I fall asleep when I get tired!". Kai yells "General, you NEED To stop!! Why even go this far!!? Do you think your friends would want you to do this!!!? Or is it something more personal??", Cassi retorts "Of course it's personal, too! Those assholes were th' only family I had an' he fucked up everything I worked for, for years! It's for them and ME!". The Fairy almost yells again, when run over something!!!! The General gets out to see several people piled up on the road.. all seem as if they couldn't notice what happened to them... "Damn... were they all lying here??!" Cassi asks.. Kai glared at the bodies.. "It's madness?? But only a little of it? They're like vegetables now.." he says.. Until screaming suddenly flies through the air!! The General prepares to attack; many people start running out of a nearby home "Shitfuck..." Cassi says, she gets in the car and drives off.. "I don't have time for them, she says lowly as she mows over people!"

 

Back in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Aeryssa searches the streets alone.. "I wonder where she is? My Clairvoyance showed someone who could help was here..." she thought.. She weaves through the crowds on people.. until she sees her! "I gotta go tell Lys, I hope he's through in th' bathroom by now!" she's says to herself.. She uses her clarvoyance again to see where she'd find the Cadet and hurries behind a building...            Minutes before she arrived, Lys leans against the wall facing the woods... "Shit... I couldn't in there; there's too many people. but now I should be able to concentrate...  it's just like before... I can't stand her for long.." he thought. He then tries to remember any media he saw before.. and grabs his penis... ..After a minute he realizes "No... I can't.. I haven't did it in months.. at least I don't remember if Mad me did it... I wonder why...?" he thought once more of something perverted: he's hard but nothing comes.. Aeryssa arrives just in time to see him stroke himself once more... He then  takes him hands out of his pants.. She leaves as sooon as he finishes and stays out of sight until he washes his hands and leaves the building.... "Lys!" she cheers! He jumps a little "Wh, what!!?" he asks in surprise "Did you find them??". Aeryssa happily replied "Yeah, c'mon!" she leads him by his sore-wrist to the person she saw earlier... Lys notices as they move "There's alot of creatures here, not just humans.. but I think there's fairies , trolls and elves here, too?", Aeryssa laughs "Some places aren't as racist as you are!". The Cadet replies "I'm not! Magic legitimately scares me!".. she then explains as she slows down.. "I know... but those weren't elves: mixed-orcs have slightly bigger everything than normal people; what you said earlier probably sounded racist to some..".. Lys agrees "true.. people get sensitive over mistakes...", Aeryssa then spots the contact: "Excuse me!" she calls out! The elf turns around "Ah, what is it?". The little-witch pulls Lys behind her and lets go as she aks "We need some help; see, we're trying to get to Japan, and we're having some trouble finding a  way there: every airport we passed is down, but...", the elf replies "You see things indicating it's still possible, right? It is! there's still a airport near here, but it's kinda expensive.. um, here!". The girl pulls out a suitcase and opens it up: money spills out on the sidewalk as Lys and Aryssa awes in utter surprise! The Elf grabs a random amount of Ruble and yen and hands it to the witch: "Here ya go, for a trip there and back!". Lys shudders as Aeryssa replies "W, we couldn't possibly take THAT much! If you're willing to share: maybe just some for getting there and back?", the elf giggles and explains: "My dad gave me more money than I know what to do with! I was even considering using some to wipe nose or make fires with, just to make this easier to carry!". The partners stare in horror as she continues "Here's this, too: When you see a scientist with  black suit, tell him Mary sent you! he'd help you, too!", pours the money in their hands, ...Aeryssa started "Mary... ar, are you sure??!", Lys  still shivers as he adds "Yeah, this is ALOT to give away...". Mary laughs "Of course, I can tell I'm doing a good thing, too: You're kinda freaking out instead of trying to steal all of it!", she walks away as she jams the suitcase close.. "Gooooo-oooooooooooood Luck! she says as she waves bye... Lys and Aryssa stare at eachother, then at the money....
 




4-28-X!!!

 

Thus, Lys and Aeryssa  arrive in  Kamakura thanks to the money Mary gave them and the little-witch's Clairvoyance... They walk down a otherwise quiet street, disagreeing yet again... "Alright, you can't just say it sucks! Magic saved your life!" Aeryssa says, Lys retorts 'yeah, but it apparently hurts the user as well as the victim. Is there REALLY a good side to it? What happens if magic or mana is turned on you?!". She replies angrily "It won't! Alright, look at how we're using it: demons aren't giving us powers, our queen is! It's as harmless as wifi and junk!", he then emphatically starts "Alright, where's she getting magic? Every time someone gets magic it's..." he stops as he notices someone staring at them... Aeryssa noticed Lys topped and turns to see the man, too... "Hello?!" she sheepishly says... The man laughed "Oh, sorry! I was just wondering: have you spoken to a girl named, Mary?", she replies: "Yeah... Wait you're her...". he laughs again as he says "Yes, I'm her dad Mr Thorhn. But you can call Niger!" Lys smiles wryly as Aeryssa exclaims "Whoah! You're human, right? I guess I shouldn't be too surprised, though: mixed marriage's a thing...", he warmly-smiles as he replied: "Yes, you should be surprised I n my case: she has no trace of my DNA because she's adopted!". Lys smiles as he says "That explains a lot of things...", Niger replied (not hearing the cadet's comment...) "Come with me, as soon as she called and told me about you 2, I felt the need to show you something interesting...

Minutes later... he shows them to a small building: inside are only chairs, a single table.. and a PC... They all sit down as he explains "Thanks for coming: I understand you have plans, but from that mark on your forehead, it's safe  to assume you've encountered demons, or at least have and are under some treatment for a curse afflicted on you..". Lys realizes he's talking to him and spoke louder: "I... I was cursed while in the army... The army's leader sacrificed everybody to be eaten..."... Niger looks disturbed.. then says "Now I see... and you were treated for the Mark of the Beast?".. The Cadet replies "Yes, she did it..", Aeryssa adds: "Yep! It took a while, but I now demons can't find him!". Niger replied as he stares at the A "Good... there's something I'd like to explain, something important... As you might already know; being a witch and someone who know one: The world's divided into several parts. All kept close from each other, except on special circumstances... A Centuries ago, this was changed via technology..".. The partners look surprised as she continues: "Yes, manmade machines destroyed the Barriers keeping everybody safe and monsters crossed in from all over..  Apparently.. Demons and Angels were always here.. But couldn't pass through without summoning or prayer respectively.. But now they can come and go as they please, so can they dead and many creatures who normally can't live here.. This brought good things, like my Mary! And vile things...  There's many creature who sees earthlings as dinner and a new home for them. Luckily... or sadly.. depending on your mindset: the Archdemons ONLY haven't taken over, because they want hell full. Otherwise, they'd eaten us all without remorse, and even the monsters... You two must be VERY careful is you're pursuing anything Supernatural any further.. Especially now, Walpurgis night is arriving and the portal between our world and the Magic world is thinning, fortunately it's one of them that isn't fully opened, but is EASILLY accessible through any Supernatural means, including the emblem on your forehead..". Lys replies "Thanks... we'll be careful!", Aeryssa adds "Yeah, though being close to magic is something I'd love!", the scientist laughed "I'm sure! I just want to make sure you don't run into  any evil-elves or the Witch Queen... Both get mad QUICKLY at people...". He stands "Well, I have to get back to work... It was pleasure talking with you, both.", they stand as the witch replies "No, thank you! Ya helped us a lot!"...

Meanwhile... In Lebanon... Carri walks to a Free-Masonry building... "There it is..." she says... here: the sky's red and a sense of terror and dread seeps from the area/... Kai then warns her "I know you'll go no matter what, but at least watch-out for the Archdemons! Normal one's shouldn't be problem to you... but if one of them are here...".. The general rushes inside "Then I'll kill that bastard too, until I find that asshole!!!", she bursts through the lobby. Demons are inside, all possessing humans... But the General mercilessly destroys them before they can react: blood rains all over from her murderous blade "Where's th' portal!!?" she asks in annoyance. Kai looks at a Lobby Wall.. "It's in the very center of the building! We can go aro..." he interrupted by Cassi tearing the wall down with her broadsword, and smirking at the demons coming up from a pentagram on the floor! She quickly incapacitate/kills the ones who notice her as she leaps into the hellish-light! Kai stops just before going all the way in: "It hurts... it stings too bad! I'll go get help, General!!!" he yells in pain.. 

Inside Hell: Cassi laughs "Don't worry about it, so long as you find a way ta get me out: I'm fine! As for the demons..." she lands on a field of eyes.... black-blood sprays from underneath her as many horrifically shaped things notice her preence... "They're ALL mine!!!"...

Back in Kamakura, Lys and Aryssa walk towards a research facility, unknowingly as the little-witch went on.. "...Ms. Endora said she's probably be in the Other world, because she used to be kinda feisty when she was younger.  But I think she could be in heaven. She was SO nice, so it'll be kinda sad, right? Eeee, what if she can see hell and junk? I mean the walls are...".. she's suddenly interrupted by seeing another elf! This one's naked and only covered by her long hair... She seems to be praying and unaware of anybody else' presence... "What's wrong with that one??" Aeryssa asks... Lys shook his head "M, maybe she's poor and praying for money?". The little-witch looks at him "Were you checking her out? She could be a monster! The only naked people we've seen ARE monsters, for all ya know, she could b...", the elf stands... Lys immediately frowns "Sh, she's turning into a Archdemon!!!". Aeryssa stares in horror "Wh, what!!!?" she asks as the Elf says: "I sacrifice all who stand before me, starting with these... Watch your new servant: Lora, lord Satan!" 'something' grabs both of them, causing Lys and Aeryssa to start choking!! "L, Lys.. us... use the guaze..." she coughed. The A on his forehead quickly wraps around what's holding them: it's a invisible-arm oozing from the elf! The gauze magically-squeezed and snapped the arm, Lys falls to the ground and reached at her: it wraps around her neck as another hand comes at him! Aeryssa yells Wa, wait.. it needs me!", he quickly turns towards her, but the other hand snatched him!! Fortunately, the gauze snaps the other arm as the one holding Lys starts to lift him HIGH up... and attempts to slam him through the road!! Fortunately Aeryssa's freed and casts, the A glows and seals Lora! The Archdemon-elf suddenly droops and Lys safely lands...  Aeryssa smiles happily "We sealed her!" she cheers,  Lys turns towards Lora.. "She isn't a archdemon? She didn't transform completely though.. I wonder what..." blood suddenly pours from his head!!!? The elf disintegrates as she stares in horror "Sh, she..."he starts... Aeryssa awed too "What happend?!" she asks... Lys explains "Since she need up.. they ...took her to hell.. She didn't even get a chance to change... maybe we coulda spoke to her? Some of the Archdemons used to be of another race before they were contacted by demons.."... He gets up and stares ta the dust.. then shudders as he turns away.. "L, l, let's go..." Lys barely says... the little-witch walks next to him "You don't sound like you wanna..." she says. He glared at the ground "I'm afraid.. but... I need to go...", Aeryssa tilts her head in curiosity "Why? I understand finding a Archdemon would help us find the General, but.. you didn't get anything right then.. Plus, you look petrified..." she asks as she looks into his eyes... Lys sighed sadly and explains: "To tell you the truth.. it's not only for Cassi... I have to try being ...'brave'...at least it doesn't feel brave, now... Everybody in the army, except her called me a coward...", he grimaced as he adds "Even back in my parents' house, my dad and younger-brothers made fun of me and talked behind my back...". The little-witch replied in a upset tone: "I understand the thing with your parents, but you could tell your siblings to shut up!", he looks away and angrily sighs.. "By the time that happened.. I already decided on being 'approachable' and even before that, my parents beat me for doing anything with or to them. My mindset wasn't as it should've been and I was taken aback by how nasty they quickly got... Plus, I don't eat much, but we were all working out, one of them got big and the other healthier in general.. Knowing them, it would HAVE to resort to violence to make them shut up..."... He starts to walk away "I know how stupid it sounds, but it seems like the same thing happened in the army: people both young and old were stronger and more vicious that I am, so I only just bide time... Now, all I can do without going into vengeful rage is use ...magic... to find and possibly save Cassi: the one who helped me back then..."... Aeryssa watches Lys... she thought.. then continues following him...
 




 

4-31-X!!!

Thus, Cassi tares through hell; destroying many demons on search for the prince! Meanwhile, Kai searches for the one who searches for her: Verily... in the woods near Mt. Genji, early in the morning... Lys wakes up from a unrestful sleep... "Dammit.. more nightmares... he says as he gets up... He unwraps the magic-gauze from around him; it shrinks back to normal size as he says "She woke up first... normally, she sleeps in sometimes.. Where did she go?...". He stands, and feels every part of his body.. he's in slight pain all; but wrist's throbbing somewhat, still,  and he's tired/heavy feeling.. except for his penis.. "I'm glad she never noticed. My morning wood could make everything awkward..", he walks away from where he slept.. and hears the bushes moving!!!? He holds up his left-hand, until... Aeryssa hops out "You're awake!", Lys hops back a little and replies "Geez! wh, where were you?!". She giggles "Researchin' for monsters and junk... Did ya miss me?!" she replies seductively.. He steps back "No.. It's... we were suppose to travel together... and..." Lys starts.. Aeryssa laughs "Awww, you're jus' like when you were crazy! You can't hide anythin' from me!". He sighs "No fair, there's monsters and junk everywhere! Um... w, we need to stay together, Um... stick together!" Lys replies as he starts to walk away.. She suddenly hugs him: "It's okay! You opened up to me, ya miss me! We're travelin' partners! It's fine to to feel this way, even if 'don't like me'! Ha!" Aryssa laughs-warmly... Lys sighs as he gets hot all over.. and hugs her back.. He then starts to hump her!!? Lys and Aeryssa's eyes' widened as he holds her tightly: "What the hell am I doing!!!? Was I still half asleep!!?" he wonders in surprise. *Thrust* Thrust* *Thrust* The little-witch reaches around Lys' neck in utter surprise, yet: she in sheer curiosity and excitement, only lifts her leg around his hip, slowly but surely... Lys reaches for her behind "She doesn't care?... I can... No... What the hell am I doing!!?" he thought as he presses/gropes her from behind against his body, he he goes slower and ephatically pushes against her... until he thought "Dammit, what the fuck!? Please let me stop!!". He holds her tightly... then let's go... Aeryssa puts her leg down.. and steps back.. "Wh... why did you?" she starts.. "I, I'm sorry..." he says in a surprised tone.. Aeryssa replied "It's alright... Why did ya stop? ...I, I mean... if we both wanted to, then it's alright, right? But then again, you don't know how much time passed since you joined the army, so you don't wanna get in trouble, but then again; age shouldn't matter if we both consent, ..but it's kinda raunchy to jus' do it out here, right? But it can be romantic too, then again: I'm not sure if you wanted to be romantic? I'm not THAT kinda person: I mean, this was fun, but we hafta have some kinda relationship going first, right?! So we should date an' stuff before we try it again! It'll be SO much fun...", Lys starst to walk away as she contnues: "What have I done?!" he thought as she now excitedly rambles on and on, with her cheeks both bright-red and her giggling every few words!

 

Back in hell:  Cassi tears through another demon and laughed happily "Come on!!! bring it out!!! Bring out THAT bastard! Or I'll kill you all! I'm ready to go on and on! My body's re-engergized everytime I see another one of ya!!!"... Gabriel suddenly dived upon a eye and replied "Please stop that, you're scaring the kids...", the General smirks "There you are, why did you hide all this time!!? I literally had to go to hell to find you!". The prince replied "I told you, that the world belongs to me: after wresting control from my father. I've set up many ...events so that I could take earth from the other Archdemons, and eventually take hell and the other worlds themselves... You know how much is out there, right? It's all for me!", Cassi retorts "You're a fuckin' ass!!!! You honestly believe everything belongs to you, nomatta what!!? What the hell you're gonna do when you have everythin'?! You're gonna be alone because you'd probly' sacrific' everybody!!!" " You sound like a 5year old's cartoon show.. My dear General, I'd be happy and would have collected all I wanted to bask in my power. In fact; I've brought some of our friends to bask in my glory and world!" Gabriel replied as he swings his arms! In that moment: the League of rebels rises from the eyes; all of them are either zombified or have reincarnated as demons! they start marching to her as Cassi glared... "DAMN YOU... DAMN YOU ALLLLLLL!!!!!!" she yells and starts plowing through her friend's bodies and her actual fiends who turned on her!!! The General grinds her teeth as she tries to mindlessly tear through the crows and ignore the familiar faces of villagers and soldiers alike she had to mow over, until she reached Gabriel!!! The Archdemon laughed as she brings down her blade, and easily leaped over the General "My dear Cassi, right? Instead of fighting against me, come and be with a true man; I was able to see everything when I ascended and now I offer you something far better than whatever you saw in that cadet..." he offered.. his wings spread open and his octopus-like penis swings open! Cassi yells "Shit!! You talking pile of shit!!" she rushes him and waves her blade! Gabriel holds it and reached at her throat, she breaks his wrist, but it repaired immediately and he backflipped away, she stomps closer as he scoffed: "My dear General, you're wasting your time... You're holding on to the demented memories you have of your father and put your twisted feelings into Lys, and even now: you're seeking revenge because I hurt you, and when I offered you a chance to be with me, you refuse? You're the most unintelligent, retarded and rather ugliest woman I've ever encountered. You still seem like a man despite the information I have, and I cannot believe you can't see the difference in our power..." he says as he stares directly into her eyes... His wings suddenly drop off... the undead stop struggling to help him and  his penis reverted to normal size... he stared at his on hands "What???"... Cassi replies "Somethin' happened to you?!", Gabriel glared "That's impossible, it's already strange enough you can even touch me with your blade, it was if something otherworldly stems from you and onto your weapon... But... even so, you couldn't hurt me, nor should this have happened...". The General smirks "That means you're human again!" she yells and slaps him with her blade!!! Gabriel spun uncontrollably and is unable to get up as he's paralyzed in random parts of his body, Cassi rushes to him and starts ramming her blade across his anus "Take that!!! Ya bastard: I finally understand ya position: Gluttony, not Greed made ya a asshole! You wanted ta consume everythin' but ya couldn't as a human, but now: once ya have everythin' in your power, ya were gonna consume it! I know how you Archdemon's think!" . The prince tries to get up "St, stop! I love yo...", she rubs the blade's edge across his lips: the broadsword easily tears his lips and gums open, blood and teeth spill everywhere as she says "Don't lie to my face! Ya knew what I was thinkin' huh???! Funny ya say it now that I'm tearin; ya in pieces!! But don't worry we can still fuck!!! You doi'n deepthroat, though!!!" She shoves the blade into his throat, splitting Gabriel in half, killing him!!! The General then sighs pleasantly and walked away from the body "That felt great.. an' don't come back either! I'll obliterate ya!!" she yells in relief... then looks forward "Now to kill th' other ones! No one's gonna get in shit with 'em bastards again!" she thought as she rushes forward!!!

At the same moment she murders him: 5-1-X!!!

Lys wakes up and looks around, it's still night.. going onto morning... He sneaks away until... he hears Aeryssa "Lys! Where're you going?" she asks. The Cadet replies "To kill the Witch Queen.. it's possible to see her tonight.. If I can get to her, with this magic.. Then I can make things easier n Cassi..." he explains... "I... I didn't want to tell you this...". Aeryssa replies "B, but you can't! Sh, she makes magic for everybody! Do you hate it that much!!? A, and you're not a killer!"... Lys sighs as he sadly explains; "I'm not... to tell you the truth I thought about this when Mr Thorhn told us everything.. and I knew I'd probably sleep past the event.. but IF I somehow wake up in the middle of it, I'd take it as a sign that I should try...".. she stares at him... "You'd risk your life to destroy something I love doing??"... The Cadet stares back in sadness.. then says "I... it's not my intention; I asked the emblem if doing this would disrupt hell, if it'd do anything to the Archdemons.. and it said yes... I could finally help somebody if I do this...", he turns away... "If you try to stop me, you know I can't do anything to you; we both know what would happen if you remove the A on me...".. She replies sadly "I can't do that... I can't hurt you, you know I can't...", Lys forces himself forwards as he thought; "I have to do this Cassiopeia, I get nightmares almost every night; I have dreams or visions about her... I'm sitting here with a witch, while she's suffering... I.. I have to at least try!".

                                  Lys finds a circle of witches near where they slept...

 




 


Lys walks closer to the witches as fear wells up inside him; they turn and notice  the Cadet closing in... and step back: as if they're waiting for him... Lys tries to continue forward, despite this obviously indicating a trap... A Hellish-light then engulfed him!!!

He looks around and realizes he's in the Other World; it's cold and almost completely black.. the only things he can see are the silhouettes of monsters and something in the distance... Lys steps forward "Shit, shit, shit shit!!! I'm scared as all hell, but if nothing stops me; then I'll no reason not to do this to help her, right??"... The cold makes him shudder, only little warmth is at his left-arm and feet... he then moves forward... The monsters only watch him, as if there was something holding them back..? Lys notices them snarling and growling, but also being too afraid to step forward... The Cadet then nears the Witch Queen! There, many human sized witches stand around the 10ft tall one... Many familiars also walk around her too... "Dammit... I.. Might die..." Lys thought as a foreboding feeling came over him... the witch-queen turns toward him: she seems to of been waiting for him! She then points her bony finger to the Cade, causing her army tall charge at once!!! She then turns away, confident that he'll die; Lys believes this too.. until the A on his forward pushes him forwards!!!! he Cadet gulps hard and aims at them "What the hell is this!!!!!? I have to at least try, now!!!" he thought as he commands the Gauze!!! The thing stretches much longer than it is, and as sharp as a blade; the thing cuts down every witch and familiar around them, quickly moving by it self! Lys meanwhile, closes his eyes as innards and bone fly everywhere!! He suddenly nears the Witch-Queen who's stirring in a giant caldron... Lys suddenly glows red as he nears her.. and hears the mark talking to him, scarily; the WItch-Queen seems to hear to, as she turns at this moment!!!

Lys then jumps as the voice says too, and soar HIGH over the Witch Queen!!! The gauze then stretches to her as she chants.... Many spells from every element starts forming: Fire, Liquid, Wind, Electricity, Plasma ect... all come at him, but the other end of the gauze protects Lys from these as the latter-end heads towards the Witch! She uses a shield to protect herself, but the gauze shattered it and pierces through her heart and other parts!! The magic all fades... and the Witch queen crumples on the gauze... and dies...  It retracts as the dust fell off it, and the sky starts to glow.... Lys awes in horror as creepy light cracks from the sky!!!! The Other World's sky shatters and coughs Lys out!!!

 

Meanwhile in hell: The General comes upon Ann "Finally found ya! I have no idea how long it took, but I found where ya shits're hidin'!!!" the General says with a smirk! The Archdemon replied "Have you any right to be angry at me?? The archdemon you killed was the one who betrayed you, all we did is give him a chance to be himself.",  Cassi replies: "Don't gimmie that bullshit!!! None of you bastards deserve ta live if bein' yaself means tormenting others! They can't be themselves, hell; they can't be anything; at all now!!!!". The General then rushes her!!!! Ann summons many demons to stop her, but Cassi easily plows through them; a creepy smile grows on her face as she nears the Archdemon, which caused Ann herself to finally attack via tentacles! Cassi easily sliced through them, whenever one DID grab a leg or arm, Cassi's speed was FAR too along to be stopped and she snaps anything that tried to hold her!!! Ann then turned to run "That human... there's something up with her... her blade she never even be able to destroy eveil spirits, neither should she able to move THAT fast!" she thought aloud as she prepared to fly! Cassi suddenly springs to her!!! Ivo leaps out of a eye at the last second: "You bitch!!!!! I understand what's happening: you're altered! Does 'dnilB eb t'now I os ,dniM ym nepo doG raeD'  Mean anything to you!!!? You fucked a up a simple spell and now..." he started, Cassi laughed "I have no idea what ya talkin' about" she suddenly comes down at him! Ann turns to see Ivo stretch his mouth WIDE in a attempt to eat the General, buy her broadsword suddenly lengthens and tears him in half!!! Ann charge to him and grabs the blade's edge "DAMMMITTTT This is a human made weapon: awakening, enlightenment: none of it matters against us!!!!" she screamed, but is tore in half, too! Their innards start raining from the sky, causing zombies to rise up and start eating.. Cassi then destroys Ivo's head.. and stomps to Ann's... The Archdemon is still talking as her body wasn't as severely destroyed: "Dammit... the ONLY reason you're able to be here, is because you're a MISTAKE!!!!!!!" she shouted. Cassi smirks "Best mistake ever!" she replies as she thrust her head in pieces.. The General has killed both Archdemons and happily sighs in relief.. until the hellish-red-sky turns black... Madness/blackblood crawls up on the landscape and drips down around Cassi... Leaving hellish-light to shine on her... Tentacles suddenly wrap around her as a insane voice says "My dear girl! Did ya REALLY think ya could 3 of my brethren and get away!!!!? Ooooooh hoooooo, yeah!!! You COULD if we weren't looking for replacements!" it said. Cassi gets her blade and tears trough the tentacles, this destroys the eyes under her, but ribbons and more tentacles ooze and tie her, they shatter her broadsword too,a nd start tightening their grip! Cassi yanks as hard as she can, but this stretched out the long things as Mikhail laughed "Try as hard as ya want: lord Lucifer himself is doing this: Though ...my comrades HAD  a point! You DID alter yourself with a simple spell otherwise used for  exorcism; this shouldn't of never been possible.. So the daddy himself hasta stop ya and even then... we can't get in any of ya holes..."... the tentacles can only near her crotch and head.. but come no closer; "It's like you 'broke' you and that bony guy's heads when ya casted those year's ago... It's hilarious because expert magic users can cast without spells, while beginners need them; and you.. you halfass a spell and get the power to fight the Supernatural!!? What the hell!!!?". Mikhail finally drips from the black-blood and crawls to her as she struggles still... "DOn't be scared, we just need a new Archdemon of Lust; you have it! But it'll take  much longer to turn you, starting with your 100% working head.. Though, you're still too damned stupid to realize it, aren't you!!?". Cassi finally yells "Let me go! Or I'll ass rape the rest of you, like I did princey!!!", Mikahail laughed "Oh fuck yeah!!!!!!!!! Cum and get me, bitch! IF you can, I'll probably wag my tail for you, because that'll be  so hot!!!!" he starts to cackle, then oozed back into the eyes under him... The black blood leaves too.. revealing only Cassi in her chainmail, tied up by MANY tentacles, with eyes on every end....

Back at the foot of Mt genji... Lys has fell on the ground.. and is perfectly safe... he awes in surprise at his self till being in one piece... Until he hears footsteps.. He turns to see Aeryssa!!!... But a sense of dread came over him this time... The smell of death fills the air and the Little-Witch herself has a disappointed/upset look on her face... Cries of witches and other magical creatures can be heard, too... "Ah..." he starts in unsurity... Aeryssa replies "You killed her... I... I didn't think you'd be able to... but..."... Lys walks to her.. "I.. I'm sorry... I know that doesn't mean anything now.. But I had to do it... If she was helping the Archdemons at all, then maybe this..." he starts. Aeryssa interrupts and says in a calm-anger: "I understand... it's because of that person... that awful person you can't let go of... Lys.. you couldn't see that the 'positive' person in your life was also like those bad memories you have... The general was just a exception in the fact she was taking advantage of you, and you couldn't see it...".... she then adds sadly "And for that... you were able to destroy all the magic in the world.. You saw how we lived, and your friends with us.. yet, you'd do that.... You..."... Lys shudders at hearing her voice in this tone.. but replies "I... ...(Shit... I couldn't help, right? I used magic to do this...)... There... could be something else... I'll help..."... Aeryssa interrupts again "I can't... I can't be with you... I... I'll have to go home... I'll have to slog home before something else bad happens... Don't follow me...".. she turns and leaves... Lys could only watch in sadness.. The moment she left, he began feeling sick... he also can feel his carpal-tunnel much worse now...

5-26-X!!!

 

Verily, verily Lys has traveled alone again, the Cadet again relies on empty places and unused items to survive. Fortunately, his life before joining the League of Rebels, hast prepared him to independently once more; though.. Lys ist unable to fight, he's able to escape very easily from mankind, monsters and others that may pursue him Despite this, Lys dost feel a emptiness even greater than before, for thus: his family wert not what he wanted, and leaving wast not as hard as is now.. Lys had made few comrades and could not speak to either, for one ist off for revenge and he warded off the other, which brought him great sorrow and many more nightmares... The Cadet travels despite the heat and cold and has at least one protection, which also hurts him: The A emblem on his forehead wards off evil spirits, but the gauze doesn't move anymore, as neither do magical-creatures attack now... Still, hist predators and enemies do give chase when he passes them, and the emblem ist the only thing that keeps him safe from unholy and reminds him of Aeryssa... Lys arrives in Kanto, Tokyo around the outskirts...After sleeping around there, he gets up early this morning and writhes in pain... "Shit... it didn't heal at all.. even now, I'm not using it strenuously.. but.." he thought as he holds his arm... He then sighs as he looks at the gauze around his arm and brings it closer to his face; to see if there's swelling... then notices the smell... "

"Cherries... Aeryssa's scent... shit, this thing reminds me her... d, did I do the right thing?... I saw what they were doing what they worshiped... B, but this feels..." he thought... Until he notices he's being watched by a blonde! He steps back... "Uh.." he started.. he suddenly explained: "I'm sorry, sir. I just noticed the insignia or your head; would you tell me about it? It's... very interesting for me, I study odd things like this..".. Lys starts "Um... It's from..." she interrupts "Wait, sorry! I've asked something that's probably personal, at least let me introduce myself, I'm: Amethyst Helsing. What's yours?". The Cadet replies "Lys Crystal...", she holds her chin "A rare name... now, what's your story?". Lys shudders and says "Um... I guess you only mean about the mark... I got when I was in the army..." he starts.. she squinted her eyes "What? I can't hear you, wait... follow me..".. The Cadet followed Amethyst through Shibyua; a hour later they enter into a empty building.. she then lights another cigar as Lys stares at the floor "What am I doing?... I don't know who she is, or what she wants.. I followed out of sheer curiosity and hopefulness; that she'd help.. but for all I know, she could be a monster..." he thought. Amethyst then walks to the other end of the room and leans against the wall... "Alright, explain everything to me... From the moment you said something about an army?" she asks.. Lys starts "I had just joined it...", she leans towards him a little "What?! I can't hear you. Do you have a mental problem?" she asks.. The Cadet replies; "No... I.. I just don't talk much... Sorry... Sorry..." his voice gets a little louder "I was living in Avalon, until I was recruited into a army... We traveled until a Archdemon came and offered everybody a chance to be one.. And one the leaders accepted.. The demons started eating everybody... but I was going to be some sacrifice.. I... can't remember everything well by that time; …there's bits and pieces of the other leader... The General of the Army.. she brought me to a witch... and that's how I got this mark... and now I'm trying to find her... … the.. ...General..". Amethyst exclaimed "Sounds strange: but it explains a lot! SOMETHING happened to you BEFORE that event, or they wouldn't of singled you out. Further, I have to assume you contracted madness during the demon event...", she steps closer as she explains: "The mark you had to of gotten during the sacrifice, was the Mark of the Beast, but a weak version for people who haven't sold their souls; it's the Mark of Feast. Similar to the Satanic mark: it's composed of 3 sixes, but not side-by-side, rather interlaced with eachother. This had to given you madness, or even a demon's touch can pass madness into a victim. Normally it alters them and in fact gives them Black Blood... but you seemed to've survived this, also... By some miracle, some witch changed the symbol into an A?"... She walks to him and leans over to stare at his forehead...  "It seems as if it's still bleeding, too... You have a connection to something... but what?"... Amethyst then stands erect "Would you come with me as you try to recover your past? I run a business that specializes in protecting human beings against creatures. Your magical(?) powers may help..." she asks.. Lys replies "Yeah... I'll try... I'm unsure how to use it.. but it saved my life plenty of times..."... Amethyst and Lys talk as he regains his memory and shows her some excerpts from his records...

 

6-1-X!!!

In hell; Cassi's been held in place, tormented mentally to drop her Barrier... but hut she never lowers her guard/defenses... "Shit!! My body's gettin' all flabby since I'm stuck here! At very least they can't convert me: They can't get in me like they did that bastard!" she thought... until she hears squishing/clopping noise... She turns to see the skeletal-rider arrive! "Oh shit!!! where the hell ya came from?!", he replied "Verily, I hast followed thou up unto thy entered America, and thus many humans and demons hast coma upon me, so that I could not save thou as I wanted.."... The skeleton nears her and raises his blade, intending on cutting down the tentacles; but more suddenly rise up and tear him and his horse in pieces!!! Cassi yanks and jerks as he's carried away "What the fuck!!!?" she yelled, and is quickly answered by Mikhail: "Oh yeah, like I'd let this idiot do that!? I'm different than my retarded brethren; why do you think I led the Black Moon event and shit?!". The general continues to snatch and pull, until the rider says: "Verily, fear not for me; for I wouldest never of come, lest I had a back-up plan. Fear not of what he can do to me, for I have no body and cannot feel: verily demons canst get thy soul lest thy give it. They cannot touch me, but merely hold me until I reform in vengeance...". Cassi grimaced as he's lifted into hell's skies by Mikhail's ribbons and bandages...


 

8-20-X!!!

Verily, verily, Lys and Amethyst travel to London unto her home, to share the latter's findings and the Cadet/Lys' powers with the other monster hunters. During this time, she asks randomly of Lys' past and extent of his powers; the Cadet answers with all he can remember with few parts he consciously doesn't mention, for many memories well up the Cadet wish didn't happen... Thus, they make it to the city later than expected, due to monters and wars going on along their path. But due to Amethyst's money, they are able to somewaht safely make it, via many modes of transportation...Now they finally reach:  the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London. The duo walks up to her mansion, Amethyst smoking a cigar, and Lys finishing off a crepe... He smiles as they near the mansion and she says "Here we are, from now on;  you'll be part of the greatest fighting force in England." she says, then notoces his smile and asks "Are you excited?". Lys quickly straighten's his face and explains wryly "I was just thinking how surprising this was; the trip here wasn't as hetic as I thought it would be, considering..."... She smiles too and replies: "No.. it wouldn't be. We're the same in some areas, I'm not surprised we could get along. But now: yoy're going to have to be ready to take a life. You'll be trained to become a murderer.. No more running around on the battlefield, alright?".. the doors open after he says "Alright...".  A Butler bows to her and greeted: "Madam Helsing.", Amethyst replies "Top of the moring, Jeeves. This is the young man I was talking about.". He bows to him too "Mr crystal, am I correct?" he asks, Lys replies "Yes...". The woman then says "Please get 'it' ready now, Jeeves.", he bows again "With haste, Madam." he syas and leaves... The duo walk inside the mansion....

"Alright, I told you alot on the way here: but avoided religion for obvious reasons. Now we have to talk about it." she explained: "How much of the Holy Bible have you read? Have you ever attended any church?". Lys replies: "Yes... first it was my whole family oing, then just my grandad taking me thier... Now... I only read from the Bible.. and I pray everyday...", she smirked "Then this should be easy to explain... especially since we're on the same page, mostly..." the woman says. They finally leave her huge lobby and enter the bedroom hallways as she explains: "As you already know: there's 3 or 4 worlds bound together onto Earth. What's inteded is that monsters exist alone, as well as the dead. With only demonkind being able to go back and forth between metaphysical and our existence. In Earth's hell, they can leap back and forth between them, to torment and tempt us.  But thanks to what the scientist told you about; mankind allowed them and monsters to freely move between the worlds. Now, your adventures with that elf and the Witch Queen; they seem to've destroyed some matrix or piller in hell: they're coming here an expanding, but the current Deadly Sins and/or Archdemons must be in existence at all times. It's said that Lucifer himself has forced these rankings onto whoever's in his private army, thus giving them great power, but a cripling vice that could kill them. It seems it worked on Gluttony, Envy and maybe several other Archdemons, because they have seemed to disappeared, and wot I've been getting at, is the fact that a older archdemon seems to be arising from hell to take his place again..". Lys awes at what she says and replies: "I wonder why i don't feel it? The others deaths and the other Archdemon coming?", Amethyst explains: "The mark of the Beast you have.. or had, was simply a feast version of it, it has many abilities, but stops short of the true thing. Had you sold your soul; that witch wouldn't of been able to alter it, yet you'd have so much power. In this cae, you couldn't sense their deaths nor a demon coming, because of that. Everybody you sensed was on Earth/the mortal coil with us, right? You can't sense straight into other worlds, despite the mark apparently letting you inside others easily...". Lys looks at his hand "Ah... I have full... demonic ability as long as they're near me..?"... she replies as she stops: "Demonic... no... Unless you mean because you can pull information off them? Otherwise, it's something else... I'm unsure, though..."... Jeeves walks up to thm again as she finishes "Here's your rooom, Mr Crystal...". Lys loooks behind him to see the only opened door.. and goes in.. The rooms all velvet; the walls, carpet and bed... He walsk to the bed and feels it's satin and silk sheets... Meanwhile, outside the room... Jeeves whispered to his boss: "Madam, I do not mean any disrespect. But why are we going to let a man of whitchery into our mansion? Even if he does not use it; the man's... the boy has cannot fight, correct? Or if he did, he seems to way too unchanged about illing anything... it's as almost he didn't care at all...", she whispers back: "It's because the mark killed them. From wot I heard, he barely used effort and his 'weapon' magically done in anything he came in contact with. He never drew blood himself, so he hasn't felt how it's like to kill. Even though he recognizes himself as a murderer, deep down; he seems to know he hasn't done a single thing to the Archdemons, rather: the mark obeyed ihis intentions.". The butler then asks "Yes, it seems plausible. He's casting, or merely sending it to work, such as you do to our soldiers. Yet, this is magically happening...",  Amethyst replies "Yes, because of the witch he rarely speaks of... Wotever she did to the mak of the beast, seems to've made it's powers go o his command; though something borne from a witch SHOULDN'T have any affect on Archdemons at all... You suspicions are understoodm Jeeves... But we need him for now..". Lys walks out of the room, having waited as he didn't want to interrupt whatever they were talking about... "..." he sighs as memories againg flood into his head... until Amethyst asks "Alright Bloke, how'd you like your new room?".. Lys smiles wryly "It's great, the walls and my bed's my favorite color.".. She replies "Great, now rest up right now, because we'll being training right away tomorrow!". The cadet then says "Alright...", she and the butler leaves... and Lys turns to look around/try to familiarize where he now lives... when he notices a policewoman walking by... he doesn't speak to her, but realize she's this because of her uniform and he's alos alarmed by the strange look in her eyes as compared to the others there...
 




 

8-31-X!!!

Lys is trained in basic hand-to-hand combat and tries to force himelf to eat more, to build muscle... but as for the moment... The Cadet strikes a dummy, it doesn't move... "Shit... I can't make myself eat more than I am... I've been getting sick lately..." he thought... he strikes it again.. as Jeeves enters the room "Mr. Crystal, I see you've taken this seriously...", Lys replies "Yeah... I understand I have to get stronger... and to be able to use a weapon, I have to be able to wield it.. but... I didn't eat well even at my parents' house.. nor alone... It's hard to suddenly change...". The butler then walks to a punching-bag "You've tried this too, I've seen. I won't force you to go further than your limits now, but I will suggest you getting used to hitting this instead: it has the same density as a adult male. Something you should be able to fight, if  you're going to kill monsters...", the Cadet wlaks to tit and gets in a stance as Jeeves walks away "Madam Amethyst also said you liked to train by yourself, so I'll leave you to it, but please keep up the pace; we're rooting for your success.". Lys starts hitting the bag.. it doesn't move... The Cadet starts to glare in angrer and frustration... until he feels his dinner coming back up!! He ran to the nearest bathroom as Jeeves watches in silence...

9-3-X!!!

reports of Lys' body not being able to keep too much meat down has quicly sprea, his diet's changed to less and his training shifts to artillery instead... Today, the Cadet is at the firing range, and shots along with the other soldiers beside him... He aims at a target and fired... he doesn't hit any part of it... Amethyst then  suggests loudly: "MAYBE RAPID FIRE, THEN WHEN YOU GET THE HANG OF IT; IT'LL COME NATURALLY!", Lys aims again "ALRIGHT!!" he tries to yell, too.. and fires continously... he gets close to bullseye, but just barely surrounding the center.... "GREAT FOR 7 YARDS! LET ME GET YOU SOME HELP!!!" the woman yells again, and leaves... Lys reloaded the gun and tried again... getting more close to the center of the target... Until he hears "HEY!!! YOU MR CRYSTAL!!!!?" he turns to see the policewoman from earlier "YEAH!!!" he ye;lls. she replies "I'M MELODY VIKTORIYA! BUT CALL ME, MEL!!! I WOS JUST HIRED A FEW DAYS BEFORE YOU WERE! LOOKIN' FORWARD TO SHOOTIN' WITH YOU!" she introduces herself, then stands in front of him "WATCH THIS, IF YA KEEP PRACTICIN'..." she started, then fires!!! Lys stares in awe "WHERE DID YOU AIM???! MY TARGET OR...?" he starts, she points "PAST YOURS, THE 30 YARD ONES!!" Lys stares in horror; form what he can barely makeout, she seems to've got a perfect bullseye on  her first try at a much further distance.... She walks away "YOU CAN DO IT TOO, JUS' KEEP SHOOTING THAT THING!!!" she says in some encouragement... Lys continues shooting...

9-16-X!!!

 

Lys seems to be good somewhat at shooting, and is given pistols and and a rocket launcher, both of which he oly uses in the firing ranges he's daily driven too... Though, his hesitance in some cases indicates he's uncomfortable with these weapons and this can't happen on the battlefield, so he's also trained in Hand-to-hand combat once more, but with knives... Lys quickly and and deftly thrusts with them, he also tries throwing them through targets, though his launching-power fluctuates from normal to overly strong/missing targets sometimes... Still he does better at this than other fighting techniques and the focus starts to center on this. Until he, Mel, Jeeves and Amethyst go to a vatican nearby: ...The building seems to be being built up just now, though a new city can already be seen surrounding the main building... The group enters and gets close to the structure.. Lys himself's having flashbacks, and vaguely remembers seeing prostitutes, heretics, paladins and demons in a place similar to this... As he thought, 2 paldins and a nun meets the group. "Father Anderson..." Amethyst starts "I'm glad we can count on you, the upsrising on the Archdemon's coming soon. and we've only have less tan a quarter of our army.". The Paladin replies "Aye, that's the only reason we're helping, lady.. Me, Handrickson and Encyclo here; we're in this only for purifyin' th' world... nothing else... We'll help with this, but don't try to get too friendly..."... the woman smirled "Understood, I wouldn't want to talk to you for long, anyway."... Lys' eyebrow arched as he heard the cinverstaion, a tension came in the air that's completely different than at the mansion... Encyclo then notices his fearful expression and smiles at him... he gets hot all over and looks at the ground....

9-29-X!!!

 

Lys has seemed to've not gotten better with the knives and is given a sword instead, with this: his movements are quick and fluid, but... looks stiff, as if he's holding back... This eems like a psychological thing, and he's not given a sparring partner, because of this... Mel watches him slice the air and thrust... "Mr Crystal, do you think you'd ever be able to master a weapon? I mean it in a concerned way, the archdemon's arising soon and we'll need you on the battlefield with us.." she asks... Lys sighs and stops training... "I don't know, everytime I start something.. a obstacle stops me.. I normally try to overcome it, but it's usually something that'll hurt me badly.." he explains... She walks to him "Wot do you mean?" she asks.. both don't notice Amethyst standing by the doorframe and listening... "whenever I start something,I can't go at it for long.. Like back at my parents' house; I wasn't eating meat at all.. then when I tried to, I was throwing up back then if I ate a certain amount in a day.. When I was in the army, I tried getting stronger then, too.. But... I wasn't able to put any blades through a enemy. neither was I able to keep the same speeds and agressiveness as the other soldiers, if I tried to get better: I was berated or it would be stupid to act out and try anything on the battlefield.. I even got infected with Madness when I tried care for another soldier during a Archdemon attack... Then... then... ...when I got here.. the same thing happened again.. it's like something's trying to kill me for trying to get better.." Lys explains.. Mel replies "That's daffy, you have to keep going. I know it's a phrase that's probably used in a more... less literally sense, but you have to keep trying until it kills ya! Maybe not that, now.. but find a way around wotever's stopping, maybe you're not suppose to force yourself to be better, but find a different way to do it?"... The Cadet looks uo at her as she finishes... Amethyst then gets a idea...

10-25-X!!!

Lys has been trained once more in every mode of combat he's tried, then summoned into a shut off room one day: Amethyst is awaiting him along with Melody... Lys nears the room as the woman syas "There he is.. this has to work..."... the policewoman replies "Wot? There's notin' here but gauze... Did you learn somethin' about his past that'll help?". Amethyst explains: "Yes... something about the witch... something important... It helps that he met her before now.."... Mel replies "Are you sure??? I've been meanin' to ask about that.. Jeeves got me wonderin' if we kill thee things, thenwh we usin' somebody who could be a demon himslef? He's not like th' other guy... And why doesn't he mention ANYTHING about the witch?!".  The woman smiles as she says "I think there's a good reason... you proably don't notice since you've see each other randomly and only for a little over two months.. but I got to know the man on our way here; he's in love with whoever it is, I don't think he knows it.. or he's denying he feels it... Maybe something happend and that's why he won't mention her. He isn't hiding anything evil, so much as he's unsure how to talk about her without saying something he'd regret..."... Lys enters the room as she says this, causing her abruptly stop! Then say "Alright, Lys... please wrap that other gauze around your arm..."... the Cadet turns towards the roll of it on a pillow on the floor... Lys walks to and wraps it on his arm... his A then starts glowing, making both his original and the other move... Amethyst smirks "I know wot he'll do now..." she says confidently...
 


 

10-31-X!!!

 

Lys hast been trained with his 'magics' for a short time, for the event cometh. Now, all Helsing's men and a army of paldins from the vatican, both march to where the archdemon is said to rise from: Southwark. They arrive near midnight and all leave the horses and vehicles to aproach the area from both sides... Lys stares in fear as the afmiliar sense of ominous forboding cames down upon him... He then asks "D, do we know which Archdemon it'll be? If it's replacing one, which on is it?"... Amethyst replies: "Belial, the worthless or Sloth. It's believed that when you killed that elf, the one who was to replace the last ruler of Envy, you 'broke' something since she wasn't completely initiated and therefore something someone killed Ivo: the holder of the title. Now Belial's back to reclaim his title.. but we're going to stop the monster before he can get any stronger than he is..". The Cadet sigh in relief somewhat "Ah... I did something to them?? I guess the might not be as bad; the others were killed by the gauze, and it happened so fast..."... he then asks "Wait, how do you know he'll be here?... Does someone else have the mark??". Amethyst looks upset as she explains "No... it's a hint from a old friend we lost control of... he helped us track down and kill the supernatural, but gained a power that allowed him satisfy his thirst for bloodlust, and he simply skipped through the worlds... he DID leaves us a way to find dangerous threats, and a way to prepare... It's his way of showing he cares.. but he must pursue his... gory, demented dreams..."... They near a Bridgeyard-street when everybody suddenly stops.... "Right on time..." she now says to herself...

11:49 PM

The ground suddenly shakes, everybody readies their weapons as hellish-light arises from the center of the street... "Good thing we evacutaed..." Amethyst stared... when Black-Blood suddenly sprays up in rows, around her army!!! The same happens around Anderson's army!!! Fortunately, it stops as it nears: her, Jeeves, Mel and Lys; his A is glowing brighter than it does when he fights... Meanwhile; Anderson holds up a cross keeping: Him, Hendrickson and Encyclo safe, via it's bright glow... The Hellish light then shapes into  Belial; the form is that of a pale, horned male with ornage-yellow shades hiding his eyes. He wears a bright red tuxedo with long coatails and a creepy smile... "Well, hell! I expected a couple of friends over! But I didn't think they'd bring me some linch!" he laughed " A lil' somethin; somethin' great! Now I'm ready to REclaim my place as the most worthless man in existence HhAAHAHAA!".....  Amethyst sighed in annoyance "All you demons are idiots..." she says, Belial cackled maniaclly and pulls out a rifle!!! But a dagger goes through his back/heart!!! He turns to see Anderson finish chanting something, and catch ablaze!!! Jeeves watches calmly as he explains "It seems he's called down Holy fire... This' bold consdering the necessar evils we do...", the paladin rushes Belial. But the demon turns his rifle on him and fired! Anderson leaps over it as Hendrickson fires QUICKLY at the stray bullet; deflecting it from going anywhere! The old-paladin then throws a knife down through Belial's head, catching him ablaze!!! Then whips out another to sever his head too, as he comes down! The Archdemon simply reaches up through his chest and ripped his heart out.... The fire goes out and Belial cackle "That was F-UN!!!! Who's gonna be next? You should all try at the same time; don' be afraid of hitting eachother, nor should you be scared that I just ate hundreds of man in one stroke... that took too much effort to do again.."... Hendrickson angrily whips out his gun again "YOU BASTARD!!!" he says and fires, Belial shifts to the right and it almost hits Amethyst!! But a *spllll* is heard..

Jeeves steps forwards as the bullet falls in half... "That youngman: Ralphael Anderson was too zealous, and has taught young Hendrickson there to that way too: I have awaited this moment carefully, if you're going to attack, do it now.". he says, the Archdemon scoffed "I don't FEel like movING froM the spot.. you're too far away: come and get meh!". Jeeves then moves his hands, invisible-string soaked in Holy-Water suddenly cut through the Archdemon! Belial scremaed in pain and now tries to run, but another movemnt form Jeevs' hands slams him through the street and snaps him in pieces!!! He then turns towards Amethyst "That's how it's done, madam..". Hendrickson awed "Y, you killed him THAT easily??!" he asked, the butler explains "Yes nomatter how powerful evil is. It's EVIL, anything holy can surely destroy it. It simply needs to exist in the correct hands, that being said...". He swings his arms, the wires glisten in the moonlight as they surround Lys!!!? Amethyst yells "Wot're you doing?!", he relied "Wot me and Anderson decided on before we arrived: to kill Mr Crystal. His power's is something far from unholy, a witch gave him strebgth NOT a preist. My wires wored because of my getting them sanctified, while Lys there is simply overpowering demons with more devilish energy... We must kill him as well!". She  shudders.. then says "Y, you have a..."... Melody interrupts her: "Amethyst! You can't listen to THAT! This guy can't even eat, let alone defended himself, why kill him!!!?". The woman replied "Because it's something is resolved to do before, if we used him or can't anymore, we'd do this. We couldn't kill the pride if Lys' still alive!". The Cadet begins to run, but bumps into a string, he immediately suffers a scratch and steps back... "I wouldn't go ANYWHERE if i were you..." Jeeves warned..

Amethyst then shook her head "No... I can't... I plannedto also, but Melod..." she's shot! Jeeves looks ober his shoulder to see hendrickson holding up his smoking gun!!! Melody and lys stare in horror as Amethyst blleds out, the paldin steps forward "I didn't know about this plan, but I like it: if he's a witch, then..." he suddenly splits in pieces!!? Jeeves yanks back his string as Encyclo shudders "H, he, henry!!!?" she screams, the butler shook his head "Tsk, tsk... I never asked for that, I wanted her alive. But..." he looks at Melody "I can do without you, I'm only hesitating because I heard that boy could kill Archdemons without lifting his own finger, but you... you're only human!!! He lifted his hand again! Lys quickly turns towrads her "Stop, she..." blood suddenly pours from his head!!! It splatters around his feet... and touch Melody at the same moment a string cuts her, she backs up and trips over it!  At the same moment the hellish-light returns ....

Belial suddenly raised up again, and bites Jeeves' head open!!! The butler dies as the Archdemon laughed "THAT was deliscious! And so very painful, lucky for me there's not a devout thing on the damned planet!!!" he glared at Lys "And you there, yeah you! You disrupt the oredrr of hell, WE MUST HAVE A ONE OWRLD ORDER, so..." he shouted and aims at Lys "Bye!". The demon fires as Encyclo screams... but the blood pouring from Lys forms into a shield and deflects the bullet, then shines!!! Belial steps back as he starts to burn away.. "SH, shit!!!???  That CAN'T BE HOLY!!!!???? wHAT THE HELL!!??? I... have to run!!!" he turned quicker than possible to see, but in his very first step of energy, he tripped and is disintegrated... His death makes the hellfire surrounding his portal flare up brighter!! But not light anything up in flames... Lys staresin confusion and horror.. then turns to see Melody was nocked out from hitting her head on the road.. "Sh.. shit..." he says... "It happened so fast.. Wh, what th actaual shit???!"....

He then hears Encyclo... "..M, mr. Crystal?"... he turns to see her on the sidewalk.. Lys walsk to her as she says "I.. I'm getting word from God..."... Lys awes at this: "Really!!!? All this time I've prayed for help, for understanding.. but I've only gotten nightmares before and after I went Mad!!" he thought.. She then starts "I... I... He says...", the hellfire suddenly flares out ans pulls Lys down!!! he starts scratching at the road as Encyclo runs to him "I.." she suddenly stops after hearing something.. and thought aloud "Don't pull him out!!!?"... Lys meanwhile is sucked down to hell!!!

 


 

12:00 AM

Lys falls atop of a field of eyes... he gets up in terror as memories flood back: he now remebers everything clearly.. and his heart pounds in terror... He looks around to see if there's a way out or if demons are coming.. until he notices: Cassi tied to a post, a half-a-mile away! She's also less muscular/bulky and her hair's grown to her feet.... Her body's also covered in scars and her chainmail's cut into: indicating torture...! Lys stares in horror and empathy... and yells Cassiopeia!!!" as he rushes to her!!! She wakes to see: "Lys!!!?' she thought out loud in a softer voice (Due to resting it so long while concentrating on her mental stability) Lys runs as fast he can towards Cassi!! 

Lys nears her when the terrain's changed, sliding him backwards as Mikahail drops from the sky!!! "What the fuck do we fucking have fucking here!!!? Lys Motha fucka!!!! The cherry from The Legue of rebels!!", the Cadet tries to stand as eyeballs and blood trips him up, while the Archdemon cackled "You REALLY thought you could tramp down here and get th' girl!!!? NOOOOOOO, we ain't playn' it like that, boy! You're gonna die, here and now!!!", his ribbons and bandages suddenly come down at him!! Lys' gauze unraveled and slices though his bands! The two face off watching as the armaments' are cut to pieces, then the asura leaped at his face!!! The A glows brightly, causing him to fall backwards; "DAMMIT! I'll just..." Mikhail ties his head up tighter with ribbons! But is hit with several knives... he snickered as Lys stares in horror "AHAAAAA Come ON! I watched ya do that stuff, there's a reason I let down my guard, you SUCK AT EVERYTHING!!!!" the Archdemon laughed! Lys steps back... as zombies start tearing up through the eyes and legions of demons climb over the many eyed-hills of hell!!! He crawled forwards as the Cadet steps backwards...

Lys pulls out a pistol and aims at him "Shit... This probably won't do anything... but I hafta try something..." he thought as she starts opening fire... Mikhail laughed, until he's slashed in the face!!! He leaped backwards and scoffed as Prata arrived: "Ya did good, now sit back; Cadet..." he says with a smirk, Touka shoots randomly into the legions, pushing many demons back "This ain't so hard... this'll be easy!" she says confidently... Mikhail growled angrily and coughed a wave of black-blood at them!! Many zombies from spill out even before it even crashes down...  Mien suddenly arrives and waved her arm: the blood disappears and the zombies are easily shot and dismantled in midair... "Looks all that shit was worth it." she says without a smile unlike the other 2... she also has horns and a pointed-tail... Lys smiles excitedly as he sees he's not alone, Cassi does too! "What the fuckin' hell!!!? How'd you guys get here!!!? How'd ya survive!!?" she yells, Prata smirked "We'll tell ya later, for now: let's kick some ASS!!!!". They charge at Mikhail, Lys breaks straight to Cassi,  while the others shoot at and directly cut up Mikhail as she randomly swings, trying to crush them! Mein shoots his head open, it regrows, revealing his head with 3 faces!!!!? Ribbons start forming out of his body and wraps around this as he says "That's it, I'd had enough; you retarded fucks!!!". He backflips HIGH over them and slams in front of Lys!!! The terrafirma shifted again, sliding the back down towards the pits of hell, but every soldier holds on tightly! Lys almost falls too, but quickly stabs a knife through one of the eyes! He looks up to see the other soldiers already back up on the battlefield, "Shit!!!!" he says as he climbs up slowly...

Mikhail fired at the group as they spread out and try a pincer attack, but the Archdemon easily sliced them with his ribbons; they shoot out quickly, scratching them all, Mein laughs and rushed to him "I can't feel pain anymore, bastard!" she aims at him and fires a beam through his face, teeth grows out of the gaping hole in his head and he leaped upon her! Two holes tear through his neck and body as Prata helps Mein out of the demon... he sealed into the eyes and reformed from the hell-light "You assholes!!!!" he screamed!!! Lys gets up and starts towards Cassi, but the Archdemon suddenly started galloping towards him; the Cadet backs up in terror while the others are still too far away to attack! The Archdemon jumped at him, but suddenly crinkled up and folded into a square, and flips away!!! Lys wonders at what happened, until he turns at feeling a warm-fuzzy feeling behind him: "Aeryssa?...." he gasps under his breath. She smiles happily "Go Lys, so save her!" she cheers! He turns towards Cassi and rushes again! Lys starts ripping through the legion with the searing-light from the A; and comes closer and closer to the General, until a demon shaped as the upper-part of a mouth: drops on him! The teeth keeps him from going forward, the skeletal-rider suddenly leaps down from the sky and shaves the mouth in half!!! Kai yells "There she is!!!", the rider yells too as his horse bucks "Charge! Strike down the evil one!!!".

Cassi awes as her trainee/Cadet, her friends, new and old start rushing to save her... for a moment; she feels a single tear form.. then tries to break free again "KICK HIS ASS!!!! C'MON!!!!" she cheers , her voice starts getting gravelly again from yelling so loudly! Mikhail angrily shouted "WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU"RE FUCKING, FUCKING WITH!!!!!?" black-blood covers the sky and ground he then starts suck them into it as he shouted in a demonic-voice: "I Am the ARchdeMon of Pride: Asura Mikhail!!! While Lucifer Has pride in even Thinking he's better Than God. My PRide Goes Beyond, I don't neeD to bE Better: I am God! My WAYS Are the ways You shall Go! My power Is what birthed Lucifer and God They obey me!! Not  live Under free will, beforE they existeD I WaS controlling everything fRom the FuturE!! I am Everything!!!!!" the soldiers could only gag and choke off the blood as he QUICKLY sucks them in, even the rider and his horse are pulled under... until Kuroh suddenly soaks all the blood into themselves... Mikhail screamed in terror and starts to run, Lys stares in horror as he sees the Archdemon heading to Cassi, screaming "If Your'e gonna Killl Me, I'lL kill her first!!!!". Lys rushes after him as his A starts glowing brighter and brighter, until it shines straight through the Archdemon, obliterating him!!!! The others awes.. then cheers as Lys continues to her... until the symbol starts glowing again.. and pushes Lys' head towards the sky!!!

The eyes heaved horrifically and start peeling to reveal silver crystals!!!!!? These lift them to hell's sky, tearing the tentacles off of Cassi too; as Lys says hesitantly "I, it's pulling us up?...".. Aeryssa replies (being one of the few to hear Lys over the noise of the splitting eyes and crystal scarping against each other) "My mark's doing that??"... They then hear a beautiful woman's voice with tone of angered, murderous man... "So you killed even Mikahail, huh? I guess son does rot life, you should have never even lived this long in the first place...", Cassi yells at the pits below "SHUT THE FUCK UP, SATAN!!! Or I'm jumpin' down ta kick your ass!!!". Prata stares in surprise "That was Satan!!?", Touka adds "I'd thought he'd sound scary an' shit, too...". Satan replied "Heheheheh! This' too funny, I can't believe my private army was killed by something like you, idiots. Especially that punk ass bitch! If he wasn't holding that shit, he would've died n the surface!", the general seethes and realizes.. "Hey, this thing!" she pulls out the awxe Aeryssa snuck on her: "I gotta thing now, shut up or I'm raping your dumbass, too!!!". Prata scoffed "Damn, the General's gotten more gnarly since we 'em, last...".. Lucifer laughed "HAHAHA!!!! If I could come up, I'd show you how ignorant you all are. But the more 'evil' one is, the weaker they are to that shit up there... just as a holy-man can't sin once or they'd be frowned upon far worse, and just like a neutral person being vulnerable to all things from every side... till, you're going to part of my army! You killed them, so you replace 'em!". Cassi yells "Stay the fuck down there!!", Mein glared "He can't MAKE you do that, General sir.. Ma'm. I only changed partially when the event happened.." she says. Lucifer cackled "YEs I can! first, for you my dear Lys!!!", the cadet starts to hoke.. tears comes from his eyes as the devil explained: "You're weaker and more stupid than your younger siblings; you come from a inferior race, you can't do anything, and the weaker sex basically carried you here: and you STILL have the unadulterated pride to yourself that you deserve a SINGLE thing beside committing suicide or becoming food for anything else, like many others consigned themselves too.. That's why you're The pride: Lys!" The Cadet grows gauze all the way up his arms, legs and around his forehead.. Only the A Is unwrapped... Lucifer then cackled "And you, you dear Cassiopeia: have lusted after having control, power and hold on your life, as well as over someone else; since you had none. You also desired for vengeance for YEARS!! Even to the point you've practically help kill off a family: mine! (Among a buncha peons...) And again/last and least, Lys himself.. how you wanted to dominate him like you've been, and could care less about his mental state so long as ya had him where ya wanted him, that's why you're The lust: Cassiopeia!". She suddenly grows horns, a pointed-tail and her last bulk smooths into voluptuous curves.. except... "Shit!!!  most of me popped out, 'cept my tiddies!!!? That's not fair, that giant naked lady had monster knockers!" the General angrily says... Prata, Touka and Mein all awed in utter surprise... the man then says "Wait... for real??". They suddenly hear a cracking noise... Hell's sky cracks open.. and they're pushed out!!

 

                        Outside of hell: they safely lifted onto the streets of Paris, France...


 

 

11-1-X!!!

 

The group looks around in the starry sky, and quickly realize where they are by the landmarks and/or tourist attarctions... "I guess we're waroed away from what it looked like in hell/! Then again, I ran for a long time before I found those bastards...". Cassi says.. Her friends smile at hearing her voice as Aeryssa syas to herself "We're in th' city of love!? This' too perfect!" she giggles a little. Lys then looks at the generla, she smirks back at him! The Cadet takes a step, whne he's pushes aside: "Move outta the way, toothpick!" Prata grunted after nudging him... he, Touka, Mein, Kai and the rider all surround the General!

"Damn, ya still pushin' boys aside, huh?" Cassi says, Prata replied "He didn't do nothin' unless he had some kinda back-up, so...". Mein awes at her "How'd you survive, general?!" she asks in excitement (Somewhat surprising the others: she usually talks so professionally and stiff..) The General replies: "Ol' Sans over there saved me!" with a laugh, the skeletal-rider adds "Yes, verily; I hast follow thy army even from ...London... ironically; and particularly the General, for reason of her destiny that shineth forth as of now. Verily, all that she's chosen hast been of course: Free will. But now thou shalt face a ultimatum.". Prata laughed "I know he just said some creepy shit, but I just wanna say I can't over the General playing video games before now...", Cassi laughed too "Yeah, I hadda normalish childhood before..." she then glares "But whadya mean by that destiny shit? Did some asshole manipulate everything?!". The rider gets atop Slepnir and explains: "No, the god isn't even in this world, yet. Destiny hast nothing to do with you, until you meet them...".. he turns his horse away as he says "Verily, I canst tell you what it is; and thou must learn and choose the destiny thyself.."... he rides away.. Prata stares in his direction "So th' guy's been stalkin' us or probably just you for years!?" he asks.. Cassi shrugs "Maybe I'm more attractive than a 5o year ol' man, after all? Wait.." she says.. "Now tell me why yall alive?! I saw people gettin' eaten an' shit; me an' Lys only survived 'cause of that skeleton thing."... he replied "It was because of Serena and Mira, they had some shit going that was warping people outta there. I think I saw Cadet Kim gettin' away before that, though...", Touka glared as she adds "Yeah.. of all th' people Brigadier saved, SHE wasn't one.. but probably the only person who got outta there who was already in it before the end...". Mein angrily confirms: "You're right.. I can confirm she wasn't in hell.", Cassi adds "Yeah, I didn't see her face when I was cuttin' down them damn th' zombies and shit...", the Corperal then confirms in anger "It seems like a insignificant thing, but that Cadet easily snuck away before the events with magic. I can confirm she isn't amongst the dead or demonic...". Prata sighed "That means she knew some kinda magic and got away, while Serena... probably died tryna save my an' abuncha other sorry asses..."... The General looks at Touka... "Where ya saved by her, too?"..

Touka replies "No General, ma'am. I was dragged into hell along with Major-general Mira: I don't think she survived the attack, I ... I..." she looks away... "I was saved because they wanted to use me... but because of that; I was alive in hell for several years... Fortunately, I wasn't found by anything intelligent and was able to survive on the eyes and monsters until I ran into Lieutenant Prata, here..". He then adds quickly "And I got there after doing research on how to open a portal myself, when I got in; I was able to find her and the others quickly 'cause the grimoire I found showed the locations where our army would be... Be they victims or traitors...", Cassi glared "So you were gonna be anotha toy for 'em, and you researched how ta get inta hell by yourself.. Shit I shoulda did that; then I wouldn't of had to go ALL th' way ta America..." she replies... She then looks at Mein: "How'd you survive an' why do ya look like one of 'em??"

Mein replied "I was dying when they decided to end the feats and drag me down: in hell; they question us again about joining them.. and I did to get revenge. Fortunately, I don't think the enemy has anyway of knowing what we were all thinking, because I was given powers and able to survive and work I hell's army, up until I heard the Archdemons were dying. That's when I gathered info and made a break to you, then met up with the lieutenant and Colonel, here."... Cassi smirks "Your report proves they're stupid as I thought... whatta 'bout that kid?? they've been standin' there the entire time an' didn't say shit..."..

Mein looks at Kuroh.. "I'm not sure General Madam, I found them in hell, too... but unmoved or concerned with anything that happened. On my way to you, I took the child into my custody but lost them when a army tried to stop my advance. They seem to've not joined the demons as they attacked them, too... but I'm unsure exactly what they did to defend themselves and get to us..." Cassi stares at Kuroh.. "Guess come on, kid... Ya talked  before: did Mein guess right??!"... Kuroh replies via nodding and whispers "Yes..."... Prata sighs "Alright, guess that' about it?"... Touka adds "We're gonna hafta assume that they survived because of th' demonic powers they once had, right?", Cassi replies "Yeah, I DID exorcise th' demon, but I'm guessin bein' raised by a witch and doin' demon shit made Kuroh learn some crazy crap..."... Prata turns toward her.. "Alright, whatta 'bout you??? What's up with you??! You're... With all do respect: different..."...

Cassi replies "Whadya mean!!!? If ya talkin' about this.." she squeezed her breasts  together "They were always there; nobody asked me shit..". Mein shrugs as the General continued.. "As for my bein' in hell: I was lookin' for that damned prince and I ended up goin' ta America and findin' a portal ta hell, an' killin' him along with a coupla otha archdemons. But Lucifer trapped me and that bastard Asura beat me whenever he remembered to, to try gettin' me to willingly become demon, too.". Prata stared "So... you avenged us...", Touka adds "The army... the villagers.. we were all going to be a nation..". Mein glares as she says "General, what're we going to do? Now that you destroyed our enemies, what move are we're going to take now??"... Cassi stares at her.. wondering where to go next...
 


 

While the General caught up with her now small army....

 

1:07 AM

 

Lys looks at the soldiers gather around Cassi, then notices Aeryssa walking to him.. "...Thanks..." he says shyly... She replies "You don't need to do that, Lys.." in a soft, happy voice. He replies "Ah... b, but you saved me.. more than once.. .." he looks at his feet "I..."... Aeryssa interrupts him: "Don't say it, Lys... don't... I'm not mad... Don't apologize for doing what you really believed is right...".. He looks up in surprise "But.. you were so excited about magic.. and I ...", she goggles "Became my magic!" his eyes widened, she then quickly says "W, wait! Lemme start from the beginning!". Aeryssa smiles.. then sighs before she explains: "Yeah.. I was mad at you before.. but even before I got out of the nation, I learned how to control the mana around me.. and was able to easily get back to the academy. there, everybody was scared and junk, because they couldn't do magic.. But.. I was able to show 'em how to use t for themselves!", her eyes light up even more: "Can you believe it!!? I was failing class before and I could teach everybody how to use magic!". She then continues with a bright smile: "When everyone learned how we contacted another witch that survived for centuries usin' mana! She said what I learned was something that only the best of the best know! And now the WHOLE academy's learning how to do magic again and it doesn't take demon power!"... Lys continues to listen in surprise as she explains: "Yeah.. like I said, u was mad when you killed the queen.. but I realizes she wasn't magic either; she was borrowing powers from people who wanted to hurt us... But now, us ourselves.. we can fix our world! We can actually use magic to make things better, because it's not some kind of monster's energy!"... Lys replies "R, really?.. I'm happy for you.. It really was hurting me that I could've did what I did to you, to everyone... I.. I didn't mean to, it's just that.. what they do..."... Aeryssa happily interrupts him again: "I know... I saw it while I was getting back.. I know why you went.. and I know why you could kill the Archdemons, too...".. Lys stares in surprise "What do you mean?... It wasn't magic? I thought at least if I wasn't using that, the mana was helping me later on.." he asks. The little-witch happily replies "It's the mark... remember when you said it told you that something's heavenly is needed? When I made it, it was based on what I thought was my very own magic power... But, if every witch was using demonic power; then it shouldn't of hurt  the demons instead of seal them. And it practically lead you to Archdemons and other monsters and beat 'em for you... I... I think it's something else, it's something Heavenly... something I knew was there, but not literally... Something that starts the word 'Ai' and it's the same reason you survived... it's also the reason I came back..". Lys stares at her "I?... No... wait, Japanese? !!!"... His eyes widened as Aeryssa blushes and she nods her; yes he was realizing what she meant until a battle-axe comes between them!!!!

Both jump in surprise as Cassi says "Thank ya for taken care of my Cadet; but I'm takin' 'em back  now!", she huffs "I'm glad you found the axe, but did ya hafta try to cut off my face!?".. The General laughed as she walks by Lys and puts her arm around his shoulders: "I wasn't tryna kill anybody, and gimmie some credit; I've been swingin' all kinda things since I wassa kid!!!". Casssi then looks back at the other soldiers: awaiting her answer... "Alright, ya bastards! We're gonna be mercenaries! Lessee who all survived and make some money an' live fancy an' shit! Who wants to be broken when they're old and shit?". Prata shrugged "Sounds like fun!" he laughed, Touka adds "Great, I'd be bored as shit otherwise...".. Mein smirks "Fine by me: there's still plenty of people and monsters that need to be killed... We can get payed all the time.".  The General laughs happily that they agreed and she holds Lys closer, She then turns and  kisses him in front of the little-witch, Aeryssa grimaces in anger until.. 

"Cassiopeia! Thou must come unto me..." a voice calls out; everyone turns to see Elli walking to them! Her eyes are glowing and her expression doesn't look normal.. at very leats to Lys it doesn't who has been around her for at least a a few months.. Cassi turns towards the girl "Who the fuck are ya?!" she asks... the voice continues through Elli's mouth... "I'm a god of another world and verily I hast seen your saga through my powers. If thou art wondering of thy destiny or wanteth to start thy ideas with a investment; come unto the border between North Dakota and Manitoba. Verily, thou shant meet me there, for I only speak on behalf mine friend who shall, and verily wilt only pay you to speak with them.", the General smirks "Alright, it probably won't kill everybody jus' ta look at ya friend.." she laughs... The god replies "Then I shalt be waiting for thou and shalt pay thee for touching the land; we needest speak again until thy decide.."... the glow leaves Elli's eyes and she drops to her knees.. Lys steps to her in concern, but the nun staggers back up.. "So... you're the one's who he was leading me to..". The others watch her as her voice and stance has changed significantly.. Elli then notices: "Lys! ...You're alive? ..I guess he was right about letting you fall to hell..".. The Cadet smiles wryly; "Yeah... I found my friends down there...", Cassi laughed "Hell yeah! Now lead th' way!". Prata replied "Wait.. you're gonna follow that god destiny shit? You gonna trust any of this?", the General laughs again "We'll get our first pay jus' for showin' up, might as well see what th' guys hafta say! Plus, we can easily get Kim and the others on th' way...". Cassi steps forward taking Lys with her as she says: "Come on, first we'll follow this bitch to th' heavens, ha!"..


 

11-1-X!!!

Verily, verily.. the small army travels behind Elli; despite knowing where the area is, the exact location's known unto only the nun. Thus, there is slight disagreement when she breaks, for the soldiers are able to go further and art not  wanting to stop as much as they do; but Elli insists as she does not want her nor Lys, nor Aeryssa to  be over taxed... Verily, they continue on taking various modes of transport...

 

12-1-X!!! 

Verily, they findeth Kim and Keel and Silvia and taketh them unto the newly named group; 'Nonet' and continue after the Nun. Verily, they reacheth America via pirating another cruise ship (Much to Kai, Aeryssa and Elli's anger) and cross the ocean unto New Hampshire, America. The group of mercenaries continue their travel, killing monsters and commandeering modes of transport from the mostly dead Americans... This continues until they reach North Dakota...

12-7-X!!!

 

Verily, they reach the Dunseith, North Dakota and quickly head to the border: despite having made it their quickly via cars and trains.. Now they must stay on foot and beware of the many creatures that lurk the area.. They all seem to try to stop the group and sleep is constantly broken via monsters and Cassi herself being unable to sleep due to her readiness to murder. The general inly gets sleep thanks to her comrades volunteering to stand guard all night in her stead...

12-17-X!!!

Verily; they hast made it unto the international peace garden border Crossing: There, it's been converted into a palace; commemorating a event from the past... but it's now in ruins.. pieces of silver, pearl and ivory pillars are shattered everywhere and some of the tiles  are torn up from the ground.. There are no more walls nor ceiling; the wreckage of them are all over the ground and some  in the Garden itself..... The group comes close to the gates at evening... "This' it!!?" Cassi asks as Elli stopped.. "Yes.. General..." she replies. Touka looks around "So that god that was in you and another's suppose ta come now?", Prata adds "Yeah... I expected something to immediately happen...". Mein sighs and says "Where are they? Do we have to pray or something?".. Elli turns towards them "Wait, let ,e see if I can hear them..." she explains.. Kuroh looks skywards.. as Lys says quietly "I wonder if this' gonna be some kind of 'reward' thing? This feels like how they explain the apocalypse in the Bible..". Aeryssa replies quietly back "Don't worry... me and you are probably 2 of the 4 people who aren't crazy in this group; we should be fine..". Elli suddenly says "The god from before told me he has paid you, and will come in person when you meet his friend...", Cassi arches her eyebrow "What!!!? I... what the fuck?!" she almost yells, but ends up questioning the feeling in her pockets.. Then pulls out wads of money!!! "Oh sht! So th' guy already gave us th' shit! And we'll get more if we decide ta work wit' him after this meetin'??!" she asks excitedly... the others check and find money in their pockets/clothing, too as Elli informs "Yes.. As he said, he was leading us here for a friend, but he has business with us too.."... As soon as she finishes this; BRIGHT LIGHT suddenly shown down from the starry sky!!! Everyone looks up and see 6 silhouettes floating down from Heaven!!! They near the ground as they start to now descend at different speeds and order... Cassi and Lys stare in surprise, yet nostalgically as the others only look shocked and in awe... A blue-flash suddenly shown over the area, making the owners of the silhouettes visible; indicating they're now on the same plane -of-existence as the group! A goddess with silvery hair, in long pig tails, wearing white dress; that flowed softly as she hovered over them, appears!.. She also has a soft pink glow emitting from her being... Her beautiful- brown eyes fixated onto Cassi and Lys as her friends came, too! Another goddess appears from a deep-purple flash; she smiles cheerfully instead of having a warm-one like the other did.. and she fixates her gaze upon Kuroh, which changes her smirk into a wry smile.. Another goddess appears in a flash of blue-light and only watches the group carefully with a frown... not a moment after this: the flash appeared again as a goddess with long brown hair, descends; she hovers besides the first-one, too. And has a concerned, caring look in her sweet, loving eyes... The blue-light flashes once more, revealing a blonde goddess with a passionate stare... her hair flows wildly as she hovers with her friends... Last-But-Not-Least: a Archangel floats from besides the first-goddess.. He's smiling too, and seems excited despite his movements being calm, graceful and fluid... Lys and Cassi step forwards, as if something was calling them closer... Until The first goddess says "Hi♡!", the General replies "Hi? 'hi' yaself... What's goin' on? Why do ya look so familiar??!  I feel like I'm being pranked or shit..". The goddess giggles "I'll explain it all right now; but please be calm: I'm NOT forcing any of this, I'm just trying to help you guys!".. Cassi stares in awe and confusion.. the others have skeptical looks and glares... Lys could only awe at the goddesses and Archangel as memories he SHOULDN'T have start to flood in his head... The goddess then says: "Alright, first we should introduce ourselves..", the blonde hovers forward: "Yes, I utterly agree. I'm the Infinite Selflessness: Princess Vie." she smiles warmly as she introduces herself.. The Brunette-Goddess hovers closer now.. "And I'm the Everlasting Protector: Princess Selene" she revealed. The black-haired one hovers closer  but quicker than the others; "I'm the Endless flame: Princess Sarah.." she introduced herself too.. The goddess that came from the deep-purple flash flew forwards! Her excitable movements AREN'T like the other goddesses and now it's clearly seen that she looks like Kuroh!!?? Everyone seems surprised at this, except the child... as the Goddess reveals: "I'm Princess Noire: the Eternal feminine!!" differently than how the others introduced themselves...  Now The Archangel calmly/quickly hovers forward and reveals: "I'm the firstborn of God's army, Archangel: Michael. Nice to meet you!", he then backs away and let's the first-goddess hover forwards: "And I'm The Eternal Goddess: Princess Kara!" she introduces herself warmly.. The group only watches them as the whole thing felt like a warm greeting, yet planned to be so instead of natural.. Cassi then starts "You're th' gods.. or goddesses that wanted ta talk to us, then; about that destiny junk?"... Kara replies "Yes, but before you decide to accept; I wish to reveal to you the entire truth, so you're decision will be a educated and willing one. The first thing I must reveal, is that your world's apocalyptic.. as is it's already dead.."

The group all look at each other in confusion and at the supernatural beings above them... Sarah scoffs at their expressions as Kara nicely explains: "Yes.. I know this might be obvious  to some, or some of you might be oblivious to it; but your world is in it's post-apocalyptic state. While everything might seem OK in some areas, it'll eventually all go to naught...".. Cassi replies "Yeah, I think most of us hear kinda know it with all  th' demons an' shit!", Elli looks up in despair.. "It only gets worse then!!? I just recently watched friends of mine die within a blink-of-an-eye!". Sarah replied "Yeah, that's what 'post-apocalyptic' means.. Your world's doomed. Everything you're doing is eventually going to be overturned and manipulated by Satan, everything that's happening on this world now's pointless.", Kara smiles wryly and continues "Yes.. like my friend said: Everything's that's going on now will be over soon, you already know that hell's spreading and will eventually engulf: earth, the otherworld, afterlife and the magic-world..". Keel replies in some despair "We're all domed then? Donde... what was the point in anything we did?!"... the Goddess replies with a sad-smile: "There is none.. at least; there was a couple of millenia ago.. but now for many centuries, life has been..."... Sarah noticed her looking for the right words and bluntly adds "Pointless! Tell them! They have a right to know what they're doing!", she looks at the group: "Your lives have been pointless even before your births, your ancestors screwed up and there's a 99% chance you'd do it to. We're not forcing you to do anything, and because of that: you all chose self-destruction." the Flame-goddess angrily explains.. Kara sighs.. then says "Yes.. the apocalypse has happened several times, centuries before any of you could even be born.. And your ancestors... they..." she tries to explain. Selene hovers forwards some and finishes her sentence: "Your ancestors were incredibly advanced and have learned things far beyond their time. This is compared to many other peoples and worlds we've seen.. yet, because of their efficiency, they believed no one could help them; and all supernatural and heavenly intervention was shoved away.. They even went so far as to torment the angels that came to warn them and tried to kill God Himself.."... Mein glares as she steps forward some "We believe you, at very least I know I do: there's old technology everywhere, even if you couldn't go to school; like some of us hasn't: we could easily tell that the people before us were smarter by seeing everything they left behind. But... Are you saying the destroyed heavenly hosts when they offered help? What exactly happened?!" she stops as she now stands besides Prata.. "This sounds too fucked up.. people just now can deal with monsters, and even the demons agreed it's a miracle th' General here, was even able to put a scratch on them!" he retorts in suspicion.. Kara sighs again and explains "I shall tell you clearly: MANY centuries ago; mankind had evolved in technology. Everytime it reached a height, they destroyed themselves and started from scratch almost.. until the most successful prime-era in the history of mankind. The continents WERE apart even before this period, but it was known by people of this era that they have split apart. With advanced technology, they were able to 'sew' lands together.. not back to how they were, but in the way they wanted. This is how not only technology was spread and advanced further, but also how the continents are again nearly formed back together... But I must explain how this was even possible; in the era before the prime one: Mankind of this world were unable to advance as normal and needed intervention to do so, that's when a enemy appeared before them and started a One-world-order called the 'Hero Association'. This lead to a semblance of peace on earth, until God sent down a avatar of himself along with several angels to directly warn them.. but because He allowed them to exist the same plane of existence as they did, people used their technology against the beings and captured them within their mechanisms. The power is what allowed them to make many things that exist until this very day, the leftover machines are things that haven't rotted away solely from upkeep and the fact it's powered off a several angels. I hope this answers everything.. Well, except for the one who started the Prime-Era.. this man, the thing was in league with Satan himself and knew how to subdue his fellow angels, this is why the man-made-technology even worked against them...". Cassi glares and asks: "So the world advance and fucked up many times before, until some demon told 'em how to use some kinda magic-tech or some crap; then they used on the angels that was gonna help them, because they thought they were th' shit? And stuff kept goin' until now??".

Kara smiles wryly "Something like that..", Sarah scoffed as she adds "Yes, treachery caused this. And you humans are too ignorant and proud to realize you're wrong and are being tricked..".. Touka then asks "Alright, one more thing; That's the only reason everything's like this? If God was tryna help, why did He stop there?!", everybody else in that group nods their heads in agreement to her question,  in agreement to her question.. until the Goddesses all give a sad-smile.. except Sarah who sighs.. and the Eternal who cheerfully explains: "He didn't.. God put several fail-safes in place; in case mankind destroyed themselves: Destiny; and everyone has one and the free-will to follow it or make their own paths. Every world my husband and friends have traveled to, have been tortured similar to this one, but we find our counterparts in these dimensions and give them help in fulfilling their destiny, which saves their world! Until we found this world.. And my dear-Michael's counterpart..". she slowly descends as she further explains: "This world was nearing it's apocalypse which had been put off in favor of showing grace.. and I tried to give the individual; the Michael of that time a chance to live happily. He's the only one who was in position to fulfill his destiny and save the world. everybody else was too steeped and proud in their own lives, they couldn't imagine changing what they did, living peacefully or doing more effort they  were already. But this one's nature matched his destiny: To fall in Love., to find a perfect match was his dream. And unlike others who had a specific person in mind or didn't care.. or would in fact take someone else's life entirely if they could: this one was perfectly happy being himself and solely wanted to find one human who accepted him. The individual was perfect in the aspect that his destiny and this reincarnation of himself wanted the exact same thing.. But.. there was one little problem... His heart was captured already by a Earth girl, even after I showed him me of this world's current time: he was still wrapped around her little-finger. So he chose this girl in the end, defying Destiny while fulfilling it.. And thanks to God's love, he and that... female made it into heaven along with few others.. while this world deteriorated further. But.. here I am; centuries later, to find it's still standing and that me and Michael's counterparts are incarnated again, since the other has been individualized from his own existence.". She grabs Cassi's left hand, and Lys's right: "Michael and Me! Husband and Wife! You're the new incarnations of us in this world!", the General blushed somewhat as the goddess put their hands together.. then snatches away (Surprising Lys!) "No!! We aint part of ya plan!!!" she snapped, Kara replies "This' God's plan, if you choose to follow..".. Cassi yells "No! We hadda enough magic and gods and demons and shit! We ain't doin' this crap, we don't need ya help either: we gotten along jus' fin wit' out your help!". The Eternal-princess sighs as she hovers backwards.. "I won't let you do this, .. I won't force you to follow destiny: but I also can't let you doom your entire world because you're afraid of listening. What the one did before.. was choose something that followed it, and another prayed for one more chance from God Himself... But you, and your friends here seem content with your lives, and trying to make everything 'perfect' here, would only lead you into despair and torment... So for the innocent of this world, for those born without even a slight chance to follow their destiny and save this world..".. she frowns at Cassi: "I'll fight even myself: I held back against the other woman, for if I won and killed her, the individual wouldn't of listened to me... But now, if you won't listen, killing you could result in at least one more candidate to be a avatar of me... before the end of your world!" she angrily informed.. Cassi whips out her battle-axe "Bring it on! I'll break ya pretty head off an' use it for speedbag!".. The General and her Goddess counterpart: faceoff! 


Cassi glares at Kara;  the goddess hovers over her friends... Michael does too, and as she holds her arms out. The Archangel whips off her dress, revealing her white shirt, and skirt... The General smirks as she brandishes her abttleaxe "Heheh, looks like ya got ya man onna leash, like ya say that otha woman did! Lil' hypocritacle aren't we?!"... Kara glares as she explains "Michael's here beacuse he wants to be.. he loves me  and I love him. It is something none of you humans can accomplish: understanding and love that trascends what standards set by your kind. It has to be strictly old style, or so 'fluid' and 'new' that it is lies on top of a enigma.".. She puts her hands together as she adds: "And it's something most of you don't want: as much as you need it; you'll never admit you're: weak because you're not loved, you're angry beacuse you're not loved, you're disgusting because you're not loved and you'll die, because you're not loved. You'll always suffer because you voluntarily push it away and deny others of it, so destiny can never be fulfilled.. In this case: you'll see that I'm right and hopefully understand this before I have to hurt too far..", most of Nonet scoffed and/or roll their eyes at her comment.. Cassi then says "And you're a moron!  Ya can't say what we should do wit' our lives! We can do whateva we want! If ya ain't gonna push destiny on us, then ya wouldn't be ready to fight me: even if i'm suppose ta be ya! If people are sufferein' it's only because of monsters and shit! And why should I go along wit' this God shit? Where was He when I was gettin' fucked up by a buncha grown ass men!/ Why should I do Him or anybody on earth a favor when all yall want is some kinda selfish crap that ain't worth it!", Kara glares as she puts her hands together....  "Soulmeha...me...HAAAAAA!!!": a beam of shining pink-light suddenly launch from her hand as she snipes at Cassi!!! The General smirked and and divides it into the sky with her battleaze!! The others awe in shock at Cassi dividing a searing-hot light into the air, Lys steps backwards as the General starts getting more and more confident! Then rushes through the light until Kara stops and nd leaps down over her!  Cassi bareley blocks the next strike, which still brings the General to her knees!!! "Shit... I can't take a direct hit: I didn't fond no other decent armour on our way here!" she thoaught as she tries pushing against the goddess.. Kara then says "You couldn't scratch a vampire..  rebellious me... How would you injure me with a axe?", she flips away, allowing Cassi to swing the axe, the general then glared as the Goddess starts firing rapidly at her face: balls of white-hot flames come close to the General!!! Cassi spun her axe, deflecting them into different areas as the rest of the group steps back from her... Kara then zooms to her, and gives a straight-punch!  Cassi  quickly brings up her Battleaxe, but she shudders in pain from the impact!!!! "DAMMIT!!"she cursed in pain, Kara sighs "You KNOW I'm not tryong to kill you, please just listen?" she asks... The General angrily flings the axe upwards, which  nearly cuts the goddess!!! Silver hairs fly from her as she doges... Elli wonders at the iste.. "H, how?? SHe's just using a axe?? Right!?"... Noire replied "Because of the spell Cassi casts: 'dnilB eb t'now I os ,dniM ym nepo doG raeD!!!' It opens minds to allow the exorcist to metaphysically pull a demon out of the possessed's mind. This undoes parts of the brain humans don't use.. But... It was used imperfectly, such a powerful spell was cast with such nonchalant power, that it 'defected' against both the caster, and Lys... As you can see: Lys was the only one affected with madness who survived the  Black Paper Moon, and he was easily snapped back to normal by a witch.. But, Cassiopiea's defect's more subtle: She can literally kill anything.. as per her mindset since she casted the spell. Both are 100% into whatever they're nature is, what they're based on. The weapon she's using is imbued with her powers, too.. Similar to Lys' soul, mind and gauze!"... Cassi smirks "I can kill anything, ya heard ya friend didn't ya!? Stay back!" she laughed, Kara replies "I know what kind of abilities you got from wildly casting magic you know nothing of, but I AM eternal... I have no fear of what you could do to me, or what people THINK they can do..".. She zooms to her again, and kicks!!! Cassi barely blocks, when the Goddess quickly slaps her face! The General flings into a pillar, shattering it to sparkling dust!!! She staggers onto her feet... "Shit!!!"... Mein suddenly yells "General, ma'am: should we all engage the enemy!?", Prata adds "Yeah.. I know this' some  kinda cross dimensional duel shit, but that things not human!". Sarah yells "Then WE'LL step in, and I promise: I don't care about a SINGLE one of your lives, like she does!".. the others grimace at what the endless flame means.. as the General stood: "Yeah, itsa duel! Don't help me..   got that bitch!" she says after coughing blood..  Kara adds "Yes, none of mes would've like that.. We can all agree we want to accomplish feats and wins ourselves. This fight's between herself anyway: I want to live happily, and she's settled!", Cassi laughs "Because yall crazy as shit! Why would I trade my life for somethin' as prissy as what you're sayin'?!". Kara suddenly appears in front of her and strikes, Cassi barely blocks with the head of the battle-axe!!! She drops somewhat, as the Goddess sweep-kicks: the General's knocked across the dilapidated floor!! Cassi barely gets up as Kara loomed over her and backhands her, knocking Cassi's teeth out! The General staggers backwards, and holds her mouth; keeping her eyes away from Kara as she shudders in pain..! The Goddess nears her once more when the battle-axe nearly chops her arm; sparkling light erupts from the gash the axe leaves! Everyone stares in shock and surprise to see the general has slung her weapon at the last-second! Kara grabs her shoulder "AH!" she barely gets out when a LOUD thundering sound booms over: Michael's already close over the fighters!! "Stop.." Kara quickly says before makes another move... everyone else there is still in surprise as he never moved during the battle and now has moved so fast that no one could even notice except Kara, also his movement and stop made such a sonic-boom that it nearly caused their ears to bleed... He stares in concern at his wife as she says: "Don't Michael; I want to do this, I have to go to the end... You're very loving for and respectful for waiting this long, so please watch until the end?.. Don't worry for me, please only just be there no matter how this turns out?"... The Archangel sighs in frustration: "Yes, my love... Please becareful; technically you're both goddesses.." he reminds her... then gracefully floats back to where he was, making it still seem unreal he moved so disturbingly fast.. Kara smirks "Alright, let's go... I'm sorry that we were interrupted.." she says with confidence...the General smirked too "Are ya even real?! Why're ya bleedin' like a cartoon?! Whle ya pet was talkin' to ya, I was tryna figure out what I was seein'!" she replies.. The light splatters on the ground like blood, and fades away as Kara explains "I Am a Goddess; human ...mortal rules doesn't apply to me.. I don't do anything like you do. This was something you COULD'VE achieved too, had you followed your heart, but rebelling and working hard against Heaven seems like the only thing human beings are able to do..".. She suddenly zooms to her again, and punched; the General tried to block again, but is easily knocked away!! Nonet watch in surprise as Cassi barely gets back up: Kara seems to be fighting seriously, and it's easy to tell she could kill the General at any moment.. Cassi glared and rushes to her, Kara calmly watched as the General brought her axe upon her, and breaks it!!! Cassi stares in surprise and fear at the handle in her hands as Kara gets ready to strike, then suddenly grabs the falling top-half of the weapon and uppercuts the Goddess with it in hand!!! Light spray everywhere, what would normally be another gruesome sight, looks ironically/deceivingly beautiful as light fills the evening sky, and sparkles all over!  Kara seethes in pain, then closes her wound; her body then shrinks down as her husband flies to her and holds the Goddess in his clasped hands.. Cassi stares in wonder "What the fuck was that!!?" she asks.. the archangel replies "She's going into healing.. My dear, beautiful wife will no longer try to help you; you're free from destiny and are now Earthbound.". He floats back to the sky .. then stops by his friends.. "Selene; will you be coming back, too?" he asks.. she replies "I worry so for Kara, but many more lives that CAN be lost are here. I want to see if there really is no more hope for such a world..". Michael replies "I understand, you and the others have just joined us..", he looks at Sarah "What about you, my friend?" he asks.. The flame-goddess folds her arms "I want to watch them die... all of them. If Kara was completely conscious; she'd probably stop me from doing it even now.. so I'll stay here while I can.", he smiles wryly "We're kind of the same page... though it doesn't look like it.." he laughs. He then ascends a little and turns to Noire "I know you're curious to see what happens: technically we've never watched a world die.. And there's something you want to do here, right?"... Noire replies cheerfully "Yeah, there's someone I wanna talk to!" she keeps her gaze on Kuroh... Michael smiles "I hope you have better luck than what Kara did, see you later!" he says as he hovers away.. Noire watches his back "Byeneeeee!" she says as he flies away, a blush comes across her face for a second; and quickly leaves as she watches Kuroh again. Michael stops once more by Via.. "What about you? Are you curious, too?" he asks his friend; she replies in a breathless voice "Yes... I'm also worried about Kara ever so very much and hope she recovers immediately: at the same time, I'm ever so worried for  the people here. This Kara, this you.. All people here; as much as my home, as much as you and Kara, I already love these people and can see where they'd need love and attention as our other friends, do.". Michael smile warmly "I expected this, I hope you can help them. She'll be happy when she gets up, if you are able to.".. He floats away with his hands tightly clasped together and near his heart; a blue-flash suddenly covers the landscape and he vanishes in less that a moment...

Nonet, Silvia, Kai, Kim Keel and Elli all watch in wonder and awe.. until Cassi says "Alright so yall all gonna watch us die or what?!", Noire replies cheerfully "No! Sarah wants to, but me..." she lands on the ground "I'm interested in that child there!". She quickly moves towards Kuroh, as Prata and Touka block the way "You think we're gonna let ya hurt one of us!?", "Yeah, what the fuck do you think you're gonna do!? We already defeated one of ya!". Noire laughs "Come on, I wanna talk to her: ya realize the SNEAKY coincidence right? She looks just like me and Kara just finished telling you there's alternate world versions of everybody in all existence!". The lieutenant general replied: "Kara also tried to kill her countapart!!", Cassi herself then says "Let her by..", they turns to look at the General in surprise "What!!?" the Colonel asked in shock... "Let the woman go, if Kuroh wassa afraid, the kid coulda stopped her already: you saw that crazy shit she did in hell and when we got back here! Ya curious what she want, right Kuroh?!". Kuroh nods slowly.. as Noire walks to her "Then come on, mini-me: I hafta explain something important... Once ya remember everything, life'll be a little easier!". She takes her towards the garden.. then stops and looks over her shoulder: "Ya know that the god that talked to you earlier, is coming here to meet you, since Kara's gone. If ya want, you could stay here and wait for him? If you cross over into Manitoba, there's big pieces of the palace still intact and junk!" she then continues to go with Kuroh obediently following...

The soldiers surround Cassi: "What the hell, General?! Why let the kid go with her??!" Prata angrily asks.. "Especially since ya just did that fight against that bitch!?". Touka adds "Yeah, I thought we were doin; our own crap?", Mein also ask "I'm not saying I trust them, but f you were going to let the child go; then we should have listened to her, our world IS dying. regardless if we do anything or not..". Keel adds "Si, si... If it's hopeless, we should've followed her. I bet that angry one up there won't let us be saved, now!".. Kim suddenly yells "Hold up, I agree survival is important. But at the same time: we wouldn't have our freedom, I think that's what the General's gettin' at..". Cassi sighs and explains: "Somethin' like that shit... I fought the woman because I didn't wanna follow no supernatural/magic destiny bullshit.. Freedom is somethin' I always wanted, at th' same time, doin' our own shit would mean that I hafta let Kuroh go wit' the otha woman if they wanted. Me an' Lys gotta see our 'destiny' and gotta choose that we didn't wanna live like pompous airheads! Kuroh gonna hafta see and choose for itself, too! Plus, th' world ain't dyin'! Hell's comin' up all over, but people are livin' in peace in allotta places and crap, if we can take on hell an' close up 'em portals Lys and that witch were talkin' about; then we can have earth to ourselves. No monsters, no demons, no gods tryna make us do shit.". The soldiers all smile and/or smirk confidently upon realizing what she had in mind, Cassi walks out of the circle of soldiers and smile at Lys "We'e doin' th' right thing, beside: we both don't want any of this magic and gods shit, right? After all said and done, we can live how we want!" the Cadet sadly smiles back at her...

 

12-12-X!!!

The soldiers now live in Manitoba/North Dakota: in the peace-garden. They have found rooms left over from the destruction of the palace and are able to comfortable live there despite the cold, due to the mechanisms that still work there. everybody rests in their 'own rooms' while awaiting the god to give them their first new mission..
 





 

12-15-X!!!

 

Verily, verily: the small army and the ones who followed them, are all now living in the International peace Garden border, inside the palcae that connects America and Canada. There, they hast waited for the god to come to start off their new careers as mercenaries; having fought agianst destiny in favor of what freedom the had in this world. Thus, the group now ist able to think of other things besides kiling, besides fighting and besides suriving only. As there's food and wrmth in this area and as compared to other places, one can live comfortably here as they would in real civilization. One night, Cassi finishes working out in the garden.. "Dammit... I hafta find barbells somewhere.. This junk's great for liftin' but I can't getta good grip on somma th' bigger pillars.." she thought aloud.. She nears  room, when elli walks by "General Cassi.." she calls. The General turns around "What is it!?" she asks, Elli replies "Um... Do you think anyone of you would change their minds about wnating to kill for the rest of your lives?"... Cassi replies "Ha! We wanna die battling, what the fuck else do we gotta live for?", the nun then exolains "You've made friends.. yo're already all friends! I see how you interact with each oter! The soldiers... especially you; are capable of living normally if you tried for a second..". The General angrily yells "I'm fine the way I am! why would I wanna live like a pussy!?".. Elli hurrily explained "Wait, that's not what I'm trying to say! Look, you denied gods to live how you want; at least think about trying to find out how else you want to live? Surely, you didn't mean it when you said that.."... Cassi sighs.. Then walks away..

Inside 'her room' she lies on a fixed-up bed (She found and nearly had to rebuold completely by herself..) "Dammit... that bitch doesn't know what she means... Me.. do that?? I came close to thinkin' that way with Lys.. but.. if that's what they want: fuck tem all right up their asses..." she thought.. The General then drifts to sleep... then awakes at a slight noise.. "Who's there?!" she asks, and sees Prata bringing his headback out of her room "Come back here, soldier!" she calls. The lieutenant comes inside.. "Dammit, look, I'm sorry, it's just that knovking on th door doesn't man anything if someone's dead inide, or if they're not there..." he explained. She replies "So long as ya don't take my food, i don't care... What do ya want?". he sat down in a rusty chair by her bed as she sits up... He then says "I was wonderin' about what happend back in the legion... Why excatly did shit go down like it did?", Cassi replies "Because that prince wassa dick?". Prata laughed "Besides that shit head, I mean you.. I asked before, but ya siad no one eva asked you about yourself. You just went through th' army that way and later went to get revenge for everybody  without a second thought..". The General laughed "What the fuck? Now ya tryna be nice since I got tiddies?", he gets up "If ya gonna liagh at me, I..." he starts... Cassi stops laughing "Sit down soldier." she says, he sits in frustration as she says: "Look alright, I'll stop yankin; ya chain. It's just easy to see through some shit... Yeah, i didn't care if no one knew what I am, or how I was treated; yeah i got like this because my asshole dad didn't care what I was or how I ws treated.. So bein' in th' army an' and tryna avenge people who notoces what I could do, was no problem for me! I ain't a talkin' pile o' mush or nothin' it's just that I found people I wanted to keep alive..".. Prata now seemed calmer as he replied "So this was all because shit that happend before.. and you could do this despite bein' used twice.. I... I..."... he stats to stutter somewhat, unle to straight up say what he's thinkin'... The General smirks "Damn, Prata, I know what ya thinkin': You're straight-dude and someone ya talked to happend to be a girl, why don't ya say ya wanna fuck? Talkin' about my shit ain't gonna get us anywhere!" she explains. he sighed heavily "It's more than that, General... Cassiope... Cassiopeia.. I wanta start somethin' with ya... Like..I had family before my home was destroyed.. my parents, grandma and brother were all killed in sceonds, I'm used ta havin' poeple around.. so...".. She awed.. then laughs a little "Holy fuck... ya wanna date an' shit?? We're gonna be killin shit for a livin' even if i wanted to, we can't do that while we travelin' with them others.", Prata then explains quickly "Th that's why I was plannin' on findin' a decent place at some point... I mean, we can make enough money an' if we do what ya plannin' then we havva chance to live freely on OUR planet and without monsters and gods and shit.. I wanna fight too, I like it too... But..." he stutters again.. The General replied "Alright, I see what ya mean... Lessee how shit happens first. We don't even know if we can kill Lucifer or not, and as long as that bastard's alive, th' archdemons gonna keep comin' back.".. He replied "Yeah, you're right General ma'am.." he gets up "I'll wait and see what happens, too..." he walks away nervously... Cassi smirks "What the fuck!!? th' guy I was eyein', after that bastard, was lookin' at me!? I thought he was afta Touka and shit... ...Holy crap!" she thought as she laid back against the wall.. Moonlight now shines across her somewhat smug smile..

Cassi then hears bats flapping overhead, she looks up to see them flying in through the open window!!! "What the actual fuck!!? That's what I get fro tryna get some air in this stuffy old shit!" she cursed as they fly towards the center of room.. She stands as they crcle around each other and form into Lite!!? "What the shit?!" she asks, he replies "I came to visit you! You idn't think we'd never see each other again, right?".. He walks to her "And... I wos TRYING to get to you before too long.. One of dad's demons told me that hell's in trouble because of you!". Cassi smirks "Hell yeah, me an' my army fucked it straight up!", Lite laughed "Great, I thought ya were trapped in there or shite, but I guess everythin's fine!?". She laughs "It is now, they were torturin' me down there for a couple of months..." she then asks "Wait, why were ya comin' for me?! Did ya want somethin'?!"... The dhampir then explains "Yea, I wanted ta repay ya for helpin' me wit' dad and... Ta ask ya out!". Cassi stares in surprise "Wh, what!!? We knew eachother for th' grand total of a coupla days! And you're annoyin' as shit!", Lite laughed "I probably am, dad thought so, too! Haahahaha!  And it only took a few days ta know you: I had fun wit' you and Hailey!"... She stares.. "What the actual fuck, again!! plus, wouldn't ya wanna be wit' Hailey, she's more... nice? t Right?" Cassi asks. Lite replies "Yes, she IS and I'm 100% sure she woulda let me down easy an' shit... But as of now.. you haven't said 'no' yet."... The General glares "Fuck you... I hafta straight up say it then? Then no!", Lite laughs "A'ight, ya finally said that. But I hadda tell ya to, jus' go on 1 fuckin' date, come on?" he asks, Cassi sighs angrily and ask "Why? Why do ya wanna do this? We known each otha for a short-time an' ya sayin' all this outta nowhere and ya seem serious, even wit' that dumb smile on ya face!"... The dhampir laughs and explains: "'Cause some people don't need that long: and you're my type! Fiery an; all shite! At least consider my request?".. The General sighs.. "Alright, fine... if shit doesn't hit th' fan or I us' decide no..", Lite laughs "Cool! then we can match an' shite!" the General arches her eyebrow, until he makes his eyes turn red: "See? I'mma candidate to be a archdemon, too! Afta I killed my dad, Satan tried to make me be one and I could sense others. I found ya myself, but also could sense you an' somebody else here's a candidate too!". Cassi smirks "Ah... then I'll consider ya seriously!", the dhampir also laughs as he starts to turn to smoke.. "Cool!! Now if ya excuse me; I gotta quell my corner of hell!" he flies out the window... The General watches him "He's a 'Archdemon' too? Guess it would be badass ta pretend we goin' along wit' shit and tear th' place up! If Lucifer thinks we'll give in, we can trick 'em long enough so I can put a blade inta him! That's fuckin' ironic, too: I helped him kill his bastard dad, somethin' I wanted ta do.. and later on we take on enemies together... or I could use him and make way for Prata? Heheheh..."... she thought as she lies back down...

12-18-X!!!

Another night; the General walks in the garden back to her room... She notices Keel and Silvia talking together: The girl seems to blush every few words the blacksmith says... Cassi sighs "Shit... I hope I don't end up like that; it'll jus' be a strict: makin' me dinner , fightin' and fuckin'..." she thought... Cassi then nears her room, from here she realizes everybody's relaxing more as this is the first time in a while they weren't constantly trying to simply survive.. Talking and laughing can be heard in the background.. except from Lys.. She turns to see him going to his room, alone.. She shrugs and goes to hers. The General then sits on her bed.. "Shit... The chips, fish and salads ain't gonna help.. I'll hafta go out for food soon... Maybe a Minotaur, or a Selkie??" she wonders as her stomach growls, until she notices close by talking.. "That voice..." she thought aloud and gets up to open her door: outside she sees Elli walking away from Sarah... Cassi walks to her "Wait, Elli!", the nun turns quickly to see the General with a bored look in her eyes "What's wrong?" she asks.. Cassi replies "Did that god eva tell ya WHEN he was comin'?!", Elli explains "No... he only said it was soon; if you refused Kara's offer: He's apparently a god that deals with people, but has no interest and changing what they're doing... I, I'll ask Sarah whenever she comes back.." The General sighed "Alright... " and goes back to her room...  she sat on the bed and opens the mini-fridge she 'found' and gets out a piece of minotaur.. she almost eats when kai flies into the room "What the fuck!? I haven't seen ya inna while!" she exclaims. The Fairy happily replied "Aww, you missed me?!", Cassi huffs "I can't not see someone and be surprised when they come back??!". Kai laughs "It's fine, I just didn't think you'd notice I was gone!".. the General then asks "Where were you? Ya came wit' us, but then ya just disappeared!"... Kai then hovers closer as he explains: "I was talking to my new friends: Elli, the Goddesses; they all have extremely different takes on everything Elli's been praying and trying to recover from losing her friend, and the goddesses are all surveying our world..". Cassi replies "So they like what they see? I thought we were already doomed, but a couple o' them see we can live wit'out their magic and shit!" she laughs. Kai smiles wryly "Maybe? Selene and Vie believe it..." he then sighs deeply and asks "So... Were you really taking Prata or Lite's invitations seriously?". The General freaks a little and drops her minotaur leg: "Wh, what!!? How'd ya know about THAT!!?".. Kai replied: "Because I heard Prata's conscience and him actually talk to himself on the way over; he liked you for a while... and I just so happened to overhear Lite when he came over... I didn't listen to everything; but I know Prata's acting a little more happy? I'm not sure where Lite is, so..."... Cassi sighs "Shit... I don't now... I'll probably drop both of 'em..", Kai excitedly spoke after hearing this: "Th, then would you go out with me!?". The General awed in utter surprise: "What!!!? YOU!!!? What the hell?!!! Why do ya wanna fuck with me?!!!" she asks, Kai replies "We don't have to do THAT necessarily, I just liked how cool you are! Ever since we first met, I could sense you needed just a LITTLE help, and you were able to almost single-handedly stop Satan's army!"... Cassi shivers and replies "I can't do that crap wit' you! Ya don't even havva dick!!! That'll be... I mean, ya don't even look completely human!", he excitedly explains "I can make a big one!"... She sighs deeply "Wait... okay... when did you exactly think ya fell for me???" she asks still in disbelief. Kai explains "Like I said, it was a little while after we first met. Unlike others like Prata who known you for years and got excited just now.. and Lite who likes you because you fulfill his fetish problems.. I could directly sense your emotions.. It was ... t... I can't put it into words, but underneath you having to murder so much: you're a beautiful person.". Cassi steps back "What the actual hell!!!? Did that bitch do somethin' to everybody!!?", the fairy explains "No...I developed my feelings after we split up from the Vatican thing, but I didn't say anything; because  thought you already liked Lys.. And I could sense Prata's feelings way before this, like I said.. And I'm not sure what Lite thinks.. I haven't been around him long enough.. Long-Story-Short: All our feelings are real, nobody had a chance to express them anything though. If anything: Kara just made us realize that whoever we liked could've been snatched away, if we didn't say anything..". Thhe General sighs heavily and sat down: "Dammit.. Kai.. I don't know..  I'll tell ya this; only because ya seem like one of 'em squishy people-you-can-trust-types... I DID have feelings for Prata.. and later for Lys.. but one I can picture myself wit' Prata.. and Lys.. I like how much power he gave me; I didn't hafta work for it: Lys woulda did anything I wanted whenever I wanted.. I ain't sure what I think of him or Lite... Except, to tell ya the truth: I hafta be th' dominant one, and despite what I want now.. I'd probably would do bettah wit' Lys or you.. nobody who's gonna try ta get ballsy.. or I'd probably crunch them..."... Kai relies "Happily "Then It's me!? You won't talk to Lys since magic'll happen, so it's me!? Even though I'mma magic creature!?", she looks up at him "Yeah... you ain't doin' magic. Plus, it's not like I hate magic; I hate th' shit that happens wit' it... But we'll see: I also love action an' shit, so.."... Kai flies in a circle as he excitedly says "Don't worry: I'll change ya mind! I'mma bring flowers all the time!" he flies to her window "Ya better not!" she growled! The fairy laughed "Alright, what about chocolates, sweety?". Cassi punched at him as he laughs and flies away... "She sat back down as she sighs "Man... what th' fuck?! Relax fo' a second an' everybody wanna fuck??? I guess when ya ain't killin' nothin' this happens.."..
 


 

12-20-X!!!

 

Verily, verily: the General hast been conflicted wth the sudden requests of few of her comrades. Their work, their freindships, their time together and nnow as they wiate for the god.. Cassi hast been wondering what shall she do, if she shouldest consider anything at all. Thus, all mmen hast cated normal, but she can still tell how they look and speak differently on few ocassions unto her... Verly, she still trains though with different thoughts and goals until the god comest from the skies... One afternoon... Cassi finishes lifting weights...  when she hears a knock at her rom?? She gets up and answers it to see Sarah! "What the hell?!" she asks.. the Flame replies: "Someone's hear to see you."... in a laconical tone. The goddess then leaves as the general exits her home to find Selene, Vie and Noire talking to the Skeletal rider a few feet away.. She walks closer as she hears "How is everything?" from the protector. He replied "verily, ist calm and peaceful in my realm. Even here, but I fear it may die suddenly.".. the sleflessness then asks "Should we help keep this cornor of your home?".. The rider replied "Thus, thou shant bother thyselves. For if it's meant to die, let it die. Verily, I needest not this, but shalt simply rebuild it whenest it all dies. Lest thou canst really save this damned universe..", Noire laughs "They're trying: they go out from Earth and back everyday! This planet's the only one with life in this world, and all of it's stupid!". Cassi approaches after she finishes "Hey 'Papyrus'! Watcha doin' here?!", the rider turns towards her "verily verily: Cassiopiea, we art acquaintences and comrades of war. I grow weary of your nicknames and shalt verily tell the my name. I am: Odin and this ist my steed: Sleipnir. And I hast came to bring thee tidings of thou universe and this situation.".. Cassi smirks "Awesome, I was waitin' for someone ta tell what I'm waitin' for!", he nudged Sleipnir and walks slowly as Cassi walks besides him: "Verily, verily: I hast come to explain that my friend, the god thou art waiting for shalt be here in 2 days. Thus, he hast dealt with other mortals in another worlds and hast to take hist time coming here." he explained. She replies "Ah... so th' guy REALLY DOES deal with people like a businessman.. No magic an' shit, right? This I gonna be good!"..  Odin then says "Verily, ist something Nonet shalt want. But, thou hast talk to thy alternate self: Kara, have thou not?"..., Cassi replies "Yeah, I talked to that bitch...".. The rider sighs and explains: "Thou hast given up destiny for this? I undertsandeth some mortals desire a adventurous life, but thy hast not even considered what thy canst do if thou becometh a goddess.", the General replies "I don't wanna become part of her, that's fucked up! I ain;t sure what happened to the other ... mes??? But they can be with her if they want: I wana be Me! There's a buncha of everybody, right? Why won't she keep goin' with the others?!".. Odin stops sleipnir and explains: "Verily, thou shat not be part of her. Thou, and thy alternate selves art living seperatedley. Verily, I exist in every world as many different forms. This gives me omnipresence and alloweth me to see and control myself all at onece.." she butts in: "I knw, and mortals can't do that shit, right? We exist, but we don't know exactly how many of ourselves there are!". Odin replies "Yes, verily, many versions of everyone exists but hast no connection to the other. But gods can feel and see themselves in every way shape and form. But, who they were before ascension individualizes each one, and they live differently than the Kara you see. Similarly to how Noire hast only shown Kuroh her destiny, Kara wanteth to show you yours. And had thou accepteth, thou shalt be you and Kara. And couldest indeed have saved thou world and continued to live as thy want.".. Cassi then says: "Alright, so I'd be able to save evr'body IF I became a goddess an' I could jus' go back an' live as I want??!  But I don't wanna be a goddess! I know it seems fun to yall gods, but it don't look right... If I was gonna be a freak, then I woulda been born one! I'mma freakin' killer, not some prissy bitch who drags her husband on a damn leash! I can't give myself up for that crap!"... Odin sighs...then informs her: "Verily, verily: this shalt not become as her, merely thou shalt be a avatar for thyself and access thy own powers. Thus, the individual Kara mentioned hast found your ancestor: Cerys Cherri, in the past. As she said, the individual chose hist partner he made before his destined lover, but nevertheless: both how fell in love before,  he could not bring himself to forget the other woman. So she ascended to her goddess form in spite of not following destiny. Verily, he left and she either chose to live as a human again and die, or ascend unto heaven and find a new destiny... Verily, thou should at least try to become a Goddess and seest if thou would not want to use the power for thy own purpose..", Cass smirks "Alright, what do I do?! Go fuck with Lys?!" he asks with sarcasm.. He replies "Thou knowest this dost not ensure love; verily.. Realize thy feelings for him. Destiny and no, then thy shalt ascend and choose wether or not it's something thy shalt follow. For I hast saved thy life for this purpose, as I wanteth to see thy live happily..".. Cassi awes at him.. then looks away..

12-22-X!!!

Thus, in 2 days had Odin ascended and his friend descended from the sky... Cassi happens to be outside when she notices a gold-flash.. she turns to see another god arriving within the snow covered garden.. The General watches him as he asks "Verily, thou art the General: Cassiopeia, correct?", Cassi smirks "Yeah, and you must be my client!" she replies. He smiles too: "Correct: I am Bhunivelze, god of light. And now currently one of business..", the General takes a step towards him "Awesome, what dya want? I can kill anythin'!!" she informs the god.. He smiles happily and replied "That's exactly what I wanteth to hear, thus: a century before now: I hast lost several items known as: Houtentai; something important to the heavens and earth.. Verily, I am not allowed to get into mortal matters and canst mix myself In with mankind, so this power existed within your world for a 100 years, fortunately: known has found it, up until now. There art several creatures from different worlds who wert able to find the metaphysical things and devour them, it passeth on hereditarily from creature to creature and ist a cause of danger in this world. Find the creatures and tear out there hearts, for this is where it forms and resides.". Cassi laughs "Alright, so you screwed up an' we gotta find a ... how.. te.. whatever, and rip them outta the monsters that ate 'em? Lemme guess, they're all ova an' shit, right?"... Bhunivelze replied "Correct: the Houtentai are parts of angels, which are given only to newborn ones and naturally formed in archangels. Most have one. But they wert spilled by a incident that only happens in the heavenly sky... and now hast created monsters similar to archdemons, for reason of the monsters vile natures.. Verily, go to the most ravaged areas were civilization ist dead and thou shalt find these creatures.". The General smiles "Great, an' how much we gettin' paid?!" she asks, he replies "There's no words: for it shall be in all currency still valid, available and used on thy planet."... Cassi cheered "Awesome! I'mma tell th' othas and we'll get ya How.. tentai? ...soon!". Thus, Bhunivelze left in a flash of gold-light as the general informs Nonet of their first mission..

12-24-X!!!

Verily, verily: during the time everybody ist in the garden: they have found 'homes' and go hunting for food, as well as eat what's leftover in the palace ruins. Thus.. they have gotten closer with eachother as they don't have to fight nor kill anything, this causeth the many to come after the General, and to learn that the Goddesses wanteh their lives to be spared (Except for Sarah..) they have become close and peacefully live, except for the hunting and their treatment of Lys. verily, verily: the Cadets treated as he was in the army, and hast hidden in a room by himself, due to his inability to kill any animal or monster: Lys only eats the left over food of the palace.. and hast stored hoards in hist room. He has become reclusive due to be treated this way.. and only talketh to Kai and Elli on a few occasions, for Aeryssa seems to have left... On Christmas Eve, Lys sits in his room and stares at the snowfall.. "Dammit I'm hungry... I would try to ask for some of the meat the others catch.. at least.. I think Mein MIGHT share.. but, I can't even digest it..." he thought as he starts to fade to sleep "I can't eat it.. and I'm not strong enough to catch anything.. it's a vicious cycle.. my body's so frail... I wonder if I'd even live for much longer..". He suddenly hears a knock at his door!! Lys gets up, and calmly/sleepily walks to the door.. "Please don't let it be any of the soldiers.. Cassi... even she stopped talking to me. At least the one's that survived aren't as bad as the dead ones...".. he opens it to see Elli smiles at him with a armful of food.. "Hey Lys..." she greets him.. Lys stares in surprise "Wh... what're we doing? I mean, welcome!... I..." he starts. She laughs "I know: you're wondering why I'm bringing you anything to eat, and instead try to welcome me in, right??"... Lys replies wryly "Yeah, I'm sorry... Thanks...".. Elli walks inside as he steps away.. "It's fine! I would've got you something sooner; but I thought you were okay.." she explains. The Cadet replies "I would've been if they didn't eat all the snacks from the machines... I don't eat much, looks like they wouldn't TRY to kill me..".. Elli replies "They're just hungry, too.. But I get it: you don't eat much. I noticed you in the mansion, you were the only one eating salads and food like that. I figured it was diet choice until now... I really thought you could hunt to, since I could even do it.. But, you were just surviving on nachos and corn snacks?" she ends up asking. Lys sighs "Yeah.. they tasted great at first, but now they make me sick.. but I hafta eat, so..."... she giggles "I thought you were really okay,  since you were a soldier before... But you're much more gentle than I thought you were.. I wouldn't of even known you were hungry unless Ms. Selene told me!". Lys awes in surprise "Sh.. she's been watching me..?" he thought aloud.. then quickly asks "Um.. What're you planning on doing? I mean.. um.. I'm stayin' because of Cassi. but I'm not sure if I should now... And Aeryssa left the group some time ago.. The other 2 wanna stay in Nonet, too.. But.. you're the only other one who had their own home and junk..".. Elli smiles warmly "I was going to stay with you... I mean, all my friends are.. gone. And despite us not knowing each other well, I still feel closer to you and Kai than anyone else here.. If you stay, I might.. but if you leave.. We could help each other get back to civilization!". Lys stares in surprise, a warm feeling comes over him as he replies "Really? I... I wouldn't be able to fight.. and protect you..", she giggles "Heeheehee!  What do you mean by that? I volunteered to go; we'll be working together!". Lys quickly looks at his own feet "Sorry, sorry... I..". She grabs his cheeks "Stop apologizing... I know what you meant. When we go, I expect us to both work together.. not you take over.." she explains warmly. Elli then lifts his face up towards hers "Whenever you decide to go, tell me: and we can both find a safe place together.. I notices everyone's energy during Kara's arrival, and.. I think we might be the only ones interested in what she was saying.. We can try to get ourselves together until she's revived, then we can summon her again?" she suggests.. Lys' eyes widened "Alright...!" he replies, she smiles happily "This it's set, if you leave Nonet, we'll go together!". Elli then lets go of him and leaves... Lys stares at the food she brought, somewhat still confused, until he realizes something and ran to his doorway "Thanks!..." he gets out to the nun who's now already feet away from his room , she winks over her shoulder and continues... Lys sighs, close his door and sat on his mattress; "What was that about? Why did she help me?... I shouldn't look a gift-horse in the mouth; but we barely spoke back then.. She's either one of the nicest people ever.. or simply being kind because of what happened in London to her friends.. and I'm one of the few people she knew from there?.. Even if it isn't long...".. Lys lies down again.. his heart beats harder and harder as he looks at the window..


11:50 PM

Verily, verily: Lys stares out his window on Christmas eve... and memories flow into and from his head... He remembers everything from his past with the army, the Black Paper Moon and all while he wast Mad.. He thought of Cassi and Aeryssa and what should he do at this moment. He canst stay with Nonet for he and others know he would die.. though the possibility of death wast great with elli, too.. for neither were harden as the soldiers.. He hadeth drfted to sleep.. until he hears another knock on his door.. Lys gets up and answers it, to see Kuroh!! "Kuroh??! Are you OK? C, come in.." he starts (He tries to talk more as Kuroh never spoke...).. He watches her walk in.. she has a different look to her... the girl seems more confident and less like a child... Kuroh turns towards him as he follows her in his room.. She then says "Lys... there's something important I have to tell you.." in a soft yet serious voice.. He replies "Wh, what's wrong??".. She looks at a window: "Do you remember back in the castle in Lyoness, where you watched over me, until we heard that loud crash and we climbed out of the basement??" she asks.... Lys replies "I just started to.. after you stopped crying, you explained you missed your home.. and I told you I did mine too, though I shouldn't feel that way..".. Kuroh turns towards him: "When Noire took me away, she explained to me that we're the same person from different worlds, like you and Cassiopeia are of Michael and Kara. Except I'm not from this world..".. Lys awes at her.. "What do you mean??? How would you get hear if you're not from this world and didn't know if you were a goddess?".. The girl explains "Something happened when I got here, I don't remember what.. But I DO remember being at home in my academy with my friends.. I was a soldier in a association called the: Spirit Academy, we were part of law enforcement and took down monsters and normal criminals.. back then, I KNEW already I am a reincarnation of the Goddess of Madness.", Lys looks surprised until she explains: "Yes, Noire lied, but because she wanted her title to match her friend Kara's... But, back to this; I arrived here via the madness and lost memories.. and had no way to realize this until Noire came.. or a event that would remind me of my original life would happen... I didn't know to converse or who to talk to about this.. so I said nothing. That's when Noire, explained something important: Remember the individual Kara alluded to?"... The Cadet replies "Yeah.. my ancestor... he fulfilled his destiny though not with Kara..".. she then reveals: "Yes, the individual had found Cassiopeia's ancestor: Cerys, and they both fell in love, but he didn't stay with her and chose his human lover, as he truly was in love with her. But.. centuries ago.. Noire had underwent every possible torment and torture and still came out with soul shining brightly: she only wanted to catch up with her friends and live normally new, instead being demented because of the experience, like most would.. but she had fell for Michael, Kara's husband. In this instance, she stayed away out of respect despite them not being married at that moment, and because of the events happening right then her Madness altered body was transformed into a Goddess.". Lys awes.. then asks.. "Wait, the madness altered her??! H, how did she become a Goddess then? Did Kara or Micchael change her?", Kuroh replies "No, her's was granted because of her soul. Most dieties are born as themselves, others are like Kara's friends: Granted godhood for their individual nature. And Noire was given it because of her nature and body; she is now able to traipse dimensions like the other gods and doesn't have to obey the rules of any existence. But because of her nature, she only seeks another of the Michael/ yous in different worlds. In this case, she made a prophecy and/or legend similar to how Kara and Michael's incarnations will always automatically reach godhood upon finding eachother and falling in love.".. The Cadet then wonders "What is Noir's legend??"... she explains as she stepped closer: " "The legend is her fulfilling her dream: Similar to the individual, her's is love. But, she couldn't get it in her world, not they type she wanted.. and so, she lives vicariously through her incarnations who accept destiny. I have no trouble with it; as I was solely raised and trained to fight, I love my friends and have no trouble carrying a destiny that invites more love in my life.. But the person she wants: you... My version of you had his destiny unintentionally taken by events surrounding the individual, and now 'my you' has fallen for another far out of 'my Kara' and our group entirely. When I was brought here, and told by Noir what EXACTLY she wanted, I realized you were still free..". Lys' eyes widened as she holds his shoulders.. "I want you... We can learn to to do this: and help Noire and ourselves. I could use my full powers and get home, and I'll bring you out of this doomed world.", the cadet replies "Wh, what about Noire? She lives vicariously through you, but.. she could've did this herself, too..?".. Kuroh explains: "She doesn't want to.. at very least: she didn't want anyone unable to empathize with her as her friends or the individual could..." she wraps her arms around his neck "And she wanted me to live happily, as I have no chance of realizing my dreams in my world outside of what has happend. I'll take you into the Gates of Heaven and you'll be able to live happily: your nature doesn't even fit in this world.. And even if this feels rushed, there: we can take our time to see what'll happen instead of waiting for your death.".. She and him drop to their knees at her slight push, and she buries her head  in his neck: "Think about it.. I'll try to convince you through sex or by continuing to speak... anyway to make you forget Cassiopeia, Elli and Aeryssa... I can see them all in your heart on different levels.. And regrets will only fog your decisions and life..". Lys could hear her voice getting softer and softer.. and slowly wraps his arms around her.. The warm embrace of her pressing her now huge breasts against him and resting on his neck was extremely comforting and caused them both to fall into sleep.. a hour later.. they wake up..

12-25-X!!!
 

She slowly lifts her head from Lys' neck "You're too kind; they're still in there, along with many regrets... The individual/your ancestor had many more than you, and only is happily in heaven alive with his beloved now, because he was presented a way to purge himself and realizes how precious life is... Even though I come from the gate of heaven, me, nor anyone from there has been in Heaven itself.." Kuroh says softly... She stands and heads to the door.. Lys stands too: it's suddenly very cold without her, even with the heating on in that room...  She opens the door as she says "I will wait for you.. for when your able to let yourself move on.." Kuroh says before she steps outside "When you're able to love yourself, you'll love me. I'll ascend and you will too..". Lys awes and asks "I... I'll be able to turn into a arcangel without Cassi??".. she replies: "I'll be a Goddess of Madness, I'll make you.". Kuroh then closes the door... Lys then lies back in his bed.. he holds his chest as he thought "Shit... I just realized I haven't masturbated in a while.. I can't even concentrate.. still..." he looks at the snow falling "I can feel her and the others in my heart, all sexuality aside.. My feelings still come through.." Lys then turns on his side and look at the door: "Cassi doesn't love me,  Aeryssa left..  Elli might be using me to forget the others.. Kuroh's right about me and her possibly growing to love each other.. ...Dammit... even now; that witch's dragging me to hell.." he thought as many memories of her still flood his mind...

12-31-!XXX

During Christmas and from then on; Lys hast thought about what he should do.. Verily, the Cadet considers Elli and Kuroh; for both mightest need him in such times, evenassomuch he needeth help. Thus, he troes to approach the Goddesses whenevr they arrived in the garden.. but aside from Saying 'Merry Christmas' to them then, he sayeth nothing else. And ist unable to form how he shouldeth ask for help.. Thus, at random times ist recruited into helping with Nonet's new vehicle: in the time after Cassi spoke t the god f light, she hast sent her soldiers out to find something to travel with, and thus: thanks to her demonic powers and their resourcefullness: hast created a steampunk carriage, drawn by hellhounds. This also divided to give all soldiers their own rooms and store food and store water and other belongings. Verily, Lys started to run out of food around this time and now has recluse back in his room, days before Nonet sets off.. but today..  Cassi watches everything being out up "Alright, we're finally ready! I hope that fugly god ain't gettin' impatient!" she laughs, Prata replied "He can't nobody else can do this job! He hasta wait!", Touka adds "Yeah! We can do whatever we want!". The others laugh as Kai sighs at them and sneaks up to Cassi "I brought you some roses today!" he quietly says while the others worked, she quickly snatched them from him and yells quietly "Stop that! What the hell doin' this in fronta th' others!? I don't like flowas anyway!". Kai laughs "But when I first only mentioned them, you tried to kill me. Now're you accepting flowers!", she retorts "I don't wanna waste shit, now get outta my face!".. The fairy happily flies away... she then stares at the roses and stuffs them in her bag... and huffs.. "Hey soldiers, about face.". They all quickly turn away from the carriage and stand at attention.. Cassi then says "Alright, I'm jus' curious about this, since Odin showedme it... I was thinkin' of usin' it ta fight.. but eh... I'm mostly curious how my powas look..." they all stare in wonder and/or curiosity until she cloes her eyes... Her ling black hair turns silvery, and wraps into eternally long pigtails! Her chainmail melts into a white dress/bodice and her eyes now shine brightly!! Cassi's archdemon wings shatter to reveal long pink-fairywings and her tail disappears utterly... The sudden new elegant look was both surprising and breathtaking: only the General's annoyed stance took away from her new form's look! Her soldiers and Kai awed at her... "Holy crap.." Prata gasped.. Mein adds "yeah.. um.. So that's the form you'd stay in if you listened to her?". Cassi replies "Yeah... again,  'skeletor' showed me howta get this wit'out havin' to fuck that beanpole.. Speakin' of which, I'm gonna see if he's ready ta go..", she walks away as her soldiers watch... "Lieutenant you seem really excited to see the General that way." Mein jokes, Prata grunted and replied "Come on, it's always surprising to see how someone you know cleans up..."... Touka adds "Yeah it is.. I think I'm gay for her!".. the Lance Corperal then quietly wonders "I wonder how Lys looked if he cleaned up, too?"...

Lys himself, meanwhile: approaches the peace Chapel... "I hafta ask her... I have no idea what to do..." he thought as he enters the building. Inside, it's dark and looks as if it's night, with only BRIGHT stars lighting the area outside the windows;  thanks to noire.. She stands at the pulpit and stares up at the stainglassed-window.. until Lys comes in... "Hello.." she greets him "Come on up, what's wrong? she asks.. The Cadet steps closer to her, she smiles as he shudders and then asks "Wha, what should I do about Kuroh and the others? Um... She told me about your destiny.. but.. at the same moment; I realized Elli might need help too.. then I noticed the others .. besides Sarah, wanted me to fulfill Kara's dream.. and... I.. I..." he starts. trying to collect his thoughts, until Noire replies "Don't be so afraid, Lys! I know you talked to her: I know why you're here.. But I don't know why you look so upset?"... The Cadet looks at the ground.. Lys sighs as he explains: "I ...I wat to do it.. but I don't know if I can do this. I wanna help Elli.. I wanna see if I could be with Cassi, I wanna see Aeryssa again, and I wanna be with Kuroh.. but I shouldn't... I... don't know if I should be with any of them.. After seeing and hearing everybody else, I'm unsure if I could protect or do anything else to help any of them. At very least.. I know Cassi doesn't need me at all.. and even if the others do.. I don't know if... I, could help them.  During Christmas, I noticed exactly how weak I am... Even at my parent's house, despite being the oldest: I was degraded back then.. and even more in the army.. even when I tried to get stronger.. I couldn't and everything I did was thanks to magic.. and even then.. I tried to kill the person who gave it to me... Everywhere I went and in stories I heard as a child.. The eldest.. and as of now, anyone like me; is often treated the worst or straight-up the villain because they're older... I'm wondering if now.. the reason I have paths I know I'd mess up.. and everything that happened to me.. is because of karma, or was it fate? Can I actually love anyone, or am I lusting after people? Am I loveable at all?.. The fact I'm even considering this.. I..."... Noire suddenly says: Stop.. Stop it, Lys...", he suddenly looks up as she explains: "Forget them... forget your family, your 'army comrades' everybody. Because they already forgot you; you're holding onto what they said and how you were treated, and are believing in their lies. Don't base yourself off of people who'd kill you. If they treat you like that, your family, who KNOWS you and how you are: then they hate you, they always have and do now. Yeah, people should think for themeselves, but you shouldn't hurt others either... Stop worrying about comparing yourself and how you'd look to people who'd kill, eat, torment and disregard you, if it benefitted them. They don't care about you, and if they can see someone as trash.. if they can't treat them humanely.. if you were treated like someone's pet: then you should stop thinking about them. You need to let go; they're not important, you  yourself, is. If you wanted to hurt people and torment them, then you'd do it now: there's no way you're as bad as they said or you believe, so stop it. There's many others who wouldn't need this conversation and many who'd hear this (and are reading right now)  and still couldn't grasp a SINGLE word from it! But you... You're even considering doing any of these options while believing you're 'not worthy'.. proves that you KNOW you deserve happiness in some form.. but are humble enough to consider the fact you're not needed.. when you are."... Noire steps to and hugs Lys.. "They need you, we need you. You're so hurt that you can't even realize the fact you're loved; nomatter what you do.. someone does.  The people before now, the woman you thought might have, they're all unimportant. The people who love you now, the ones who wanted you with them; they want you alive, they need you to be safe. Elli's not using you, Aeryssa misses you, Kuroh likes you ALOT... the few friends you've made need you. I know, because I loved the Michael form my world; Cirris, was like you, but I could see through his 'faults' and fell for him, but I couldn't get him... So I looked for 'other yous'... the individual (That Kara asked me not to name) was already in love, so I left him to find another who could understand me... And then... I found you... someone as hurt, someone as humble, yet so proud that he can understand.. he's loved, right Lys?"... Tears comes from his eyes.. despite how she worded this, he could feel everything she meant... her feelings are conveyed directly into him.. and he cries. Noire presses Lys's head between her breasts as she says "You're understanding?.. You ARE loved, you just can't notice if you're looking at yourself as the worlds see you. See yourself as heaven does, as love does; then you'd realize you've wasted far too much time allowing yourself to be hurt..".  She squeezes him tighter as she says softly "I would've taken you myself, but Kuroh needs you more. I can find another 'you' which is hopefully as caring as you are. Lys, my dear... You only need a catharsys to understand how you're loved and how none of everybody else's/the worlds view doesn't apply to your nature... Then you can accept that even in your worst.. you haven't done anything wrong.. You're suppose to love not conform."... She backs away as he finishes crying... "I, I'm sorry.." he says.. Noire giggles "Don't worry, I like having men cry between my breasts: it's one of my favorite fetishes!", Lys laughs, she does too as she says "See? We'd get along perfectly..". She then wipes his eyes with him as the normal sunlight returns "Now, don't cry.. we're gonna get visitors." she warns him.. Lys looks over his shoulder to see Cassi.. He awes at her new form..

"What!? Oh yeah, I forgotta 'bout this look. Don't get useta it, I was jus' showin' off. So ya comin' or..." she starts.. when a loud *AAAAHHHHHHH" voice sings through the area! Lys and Cassi quickly go outside with the others...!!


Armageddon






 

1-1-!!!!

Lys, Cassi and the others beheld a light cometh into the garden: the sky, stars and horizon all faded and reveled many angels In their midst! Their Heavenly guardians, along with the leagues of angels form heaven! They all wonder, awe and marvel at this sight: As a Certain Angel steps forward. At this time, Aeryssa returneth into the Garden and is stricken with wonder, and Elli cometh out of her room to seeth the site. Verily, verily: all the Goddesses come unto the garden to witness the event. The Certain angel also hath a goddess at his side, she kisseth his cheek and leaves back into the league of angels and they disappear and the skies, horizon and stars reappear: leaving only the face of the individual angel. Lys steps closer as hist eyes look like his and his demeanor; it was as if he wast looking into a mirror.. Verily, verily: The angel opens his mouth and saith: "Ah... Now I can finally fix it; I can have to end it all..."... Lys awes in utter surprise.. Cassi does too as she turns back.. "Who th' fuck are you!!?" she asks. "I'm; Faire Crys: 'Who is as faire as God?' The angel of emitting.". Lys stares at him and asks "Wh.. what? You look so familiar!.. Like that angel we saw earlier..", before Faire can explain.. the soldiers gathered around "So this guy's a archangel, too?" Touka ask... Prata glared "We don't need any more 'guidance'. So far, beside the light god: everybody else just been floatin' around here or straight been a prick!". Mein adds "Yeah, ...And you don't look like that Archangel form earlier: if I had to guess, you're simple a grunt angel, right? We can kill you if YOU try anything like Kara did!"... Faire sighs "Why is everyone like this here? I thought at least some of you were decent?... But then again, this world ended centuries ago.." he explains.. Lys replied "W, wait! I thought it was nearing it's end!?". The angel sighs as Noire says "Tell them the whole thing! They hafta know! everybody's been saying what they know  about it, but you're the only one who knows the whole story!", Faire smiles warmly "Noire!? I'm so happy to see you again! 

I'll tell them!" He says cheerfully.. Faire then looks at everyone else again.. He takes a serious frown as he explains: "Yes, this world's ending in the worst possible way; because of a serious mistake I made before... To be clear: there ARE many versions of Earth and of everyone on it. In a world apart from ours/this one, Kara and Michael were engaged and caused a Destiny that can be fulfilled along with many others. In their world, they simply had to find each other, fall in love again, and were able to save their world. From their, Kara seems to've made more friends and found this world, back when I was human. But... She tried to force me to choose her over my girlfriend: Eliza. Fortunately, I was able to resist and have been blessed to be individualized from Michael and Kara's Destiny, while still fulfilling God's plans for me. Unfortunately: I made a serious mistake before then..."... Lys waits in anticipation as Elli asks "Your fate involved everybody else's?", Prata adds "Yeah!? Why you're so fucking important!?". Mein and Touka grunts in agreement to their angry replies... Faire then explains: "Mine's isn't more important, neither was it normally tied to everybody else: Before the Divine-intervention, like you're receiving now; I was in a toxic-family that was behind the times. Had I not reached out in the slightest, and chose the world as my dream/conformed, then I would've died a meaningless, sad death before I had a chance to learn what my destiny was. But... I can admit: when I reached out, I was able to make friends who helped me reach my destiny. I was able to learn it and ascend only just in a year... Nobody else in the entire world wanted to.. Because of pride in what they accomplished, because of atheism, because their religious beliefs didn't align to what they think should of happened then... Nobody believed in nor wanted God of HER destinies or love she gave to us...". Touka sighs "So, you're saying that the Michael thing wasn't already a boost from the beginning, then?", Keel adds "Si, si… from what I hear: You made a even smaller effort than people normally would, and everything fell in your lap!". Faire sighs and replies: "No.. I suffered, too... The Michael and Kara thing happened and it's something she has to help happen in many other universes. Like all other destinies; it's something that could be avoided entirely, like how Cassiopeia's pushed Lys away... Again, if I didn't make friends and receive divine-intervention.. I'd never met Cassiopeia's ancestor-My betrothed: Cerys. She lived in Staffordshire, England; somewhere I would've never hoped to reach myself.. I couldn't even reach it, when I had powers, until Kara warped me there... And the effort I made.. Everybody else made the same kind or greater and everybody else got exactly what they wanted. They had money, friends, adventures, enemies, love, sex, power, honor, excitement, be anywhere, do anything... all that they wanted, they set their minds to it and achieved it... Including to die.. including to kill themselves. I admit; God is with me at all times and was even closer that I could've ever known.. But I still didn't receive complete help.. it's almost if I was with HER only just so I could live up until I could accomplish my Dreams.. I wouldn't have without direct help..". Mein watched him.. and replies "So you're saying you're weak.. everybody else says that, and they don't receive a God handicap or anything.", Prata adds "Yeah, you're sayin' that you're so retarded that ya couldn't even do what normal people do? So without you hiding behind someone ya're nothing? If we got you alone, you'd die.".. Silvia agrees "Yes.. I'm not saying  I want to kill you. But you're just saying you're weak and had a destiny like we have, but God just helped you for no reason?". Faire looks at the group.. then sighs sadly as he explains "No.. I never said God showed me any favoritism... it wasn't something out of nowhere, it wasn't a handicap either. ...I hate talking this way, but... (God.. let me say this right) Everyone has their destiny, something far better and divine... when sin corrupted and invaded Earth, these are averted and people view God as thing to make themselves seem higher up or  something to take their freedom. There's many like me who's destiny is decided by their ancestors, heavenly or Earthly, and they COULD live a blessed, happy life. For many reasons this DOESN'T happen. The world or they themselves avert it, and people become proud of the horrific-lives they created or simply commit suicide at the drop of a hat... Everybody though; also are living many lives, there are different versions of them in every universe and everybody exists in nearly everyone at all times... even amongst the world you're in, you're not individuals at any point or time. In fact, because EVERYBODY thinks this way, and everybody thinks the same over every universe, you're not even you yourselves, you're more like group or just another face in the world. You yourselves erased your individuality.. there's pessimistic, hating comments that says 'If everybody is special, nobody is' but if you were individuals, it would be possible in this and in other worlds: nobody thinks the same way, if you did something here, of course not every version of you would do it. By that token, you could've been individuals and could've lived lives with God guiding and helping you, because you.. you in this world didn't become of it, so you reach out to HER instead of simply doing whatever like the other you. Again, since you want to be of the world, since you're probably not trying to understand what I'm saying, since you probably want to kill me right now... You're a faceless thing in the mass of you... and everybody else. As for the 'handicap', God didn't give me one. She let suffer mentally...".. Faire's interrupted by Prata as he shouted "You sound like a brat, what? You didn't get what ya want? Is that what happened, then??", Aeryssa then asks "You... you met God, what happened? I ...if you've been hurt, what happened when you did?".. Faire looks at her as she says "I'll try to explain this bluntly... I suffered mentally before I knew I was with God... I was born in a somewhat religious family, which eventually became spiritual... Though my grandad still took me to church back then... When I made friends and moved out of my parents' house, I suffered as I joined the Hero Association.. I had no idea God was directly protecting me and helping me through all my physical pains.. I suffered few injuries as compared to what would've happened if SHE wasn't there... God kept me alive so I could go through this torment... To reply to your question directly: Everybody has some of God in them, and SHE's constantly trying to guide you, as I said, nobody wants her. In my case, I was fortunate enough to not only be spiritual, but have God know my destiny and be kind enough to guide me to it, maybe HE knew that I would've followed her without a second guess?... Maybe she knew I didn't fit in with the world?... As much as I wanted to die, I never committed suicide.. yet, I was never overly proud of my existence.. I always knew something was wrong and couldn't enjoy it, until God revealed HERSELF.. Again, to be truthful: I suffered little physical trauma, but saw alot of horror... If being part of the world bring experiences and makes you better in some cases.. Then in mine: watching others.. never being able to free myself and tell my friends how much I love them... and being separated from my Beloved Eliza for so long; caused me to understand how precious others were.. It's too easy to not be loved at all... While I never directly tried to push others away, I knew I couldn't act or think as they did and trying to made me feel sickened.. I still suffered horror as they did... I was able to see this and like experiences  and learning supposedly make others better and stronger, I was able to become more understanding... By the time I was able to be myself, and express how I thought properly... I was able to love everyone.. The hopes and dreams people fulfilled were things they wanted and got immediately because of their 'strong wills' and 'hard work'... meanwhile... my  dreams and Destiny were something I wasn't able to accomplish because of how the world was... So when I was blessed like others, when I received Divine-Intervention like them.. as you are... I was immediately able to understand how special everyone is and was able to ascend... To give you the slightest hint of what you refused... " he looks at Prata… and explains "You're a incarnation of the god: Dis pater... My friend fought another incarnation of him....." he looks at Mein and explains "I learned that you are always a warrior in every world, and could have ascended as a angel also, as every version of you fought for someone... even now, you have.. but at this moment... You're acting as your team is..."... Faire looks away and explains: "Everyone has a destiny, as I've said. But you throw it away because of pride...".. Elli gasps... then look at Nonet.. everybody except Lys and Kai are glaring and/or leering at Faire... The angel Himself looks at them in sorrow as he explains further: "Now... despite what happened.. I have made a mistake.. I realized a very important fact years ago... and despite everything.. despite all I went through.. I forgot it... My mistake, the reason you're born into a suffering world, is because of this... Despite me ascending to Heaven with my Beloved-Eliza... ...I'll need to start from the beginning of this... When the apocalypse happened centuries ago...  Everybody was acting somewhat like this, with me being one of the handful of people that were simply happy to finally see God... but my friend: Rei, he prayed for more time for everybody else, because they didn't know better and God altered the time so that the moments left before fire rained down, were spent on people getting a very last chance to be better, and to live lives that they could've had a freedom to live as they wanted, without the world being as horrific as it was. He hoped that without as harsh of a evil influence, they'd be better... But everything got even worse... And I saw this... I... I.. I still had regrets... God made sure there was only love still in my heart, but some of it was because of my regrets, it was the same: I regretted not being able to help my close friends as they've done for me... so... I left Heaven to help... I went down and altered the timeline... Now, it's stretched further than t was suppose to go and this happened.. For centuries the world's been in a post-apocalyptic state and hell's eating everything... The universe changed horrifically, and hell's spreading out from earth to other planets. Eventually , this world will be a huge Black Paper Moon..."... Lys steps back in horror as the others grimace... Faire then adds "This is why I've come to undo my mistake and erase this from existence... But only..."... Prata suddenly interrupts: "So we hafta die becsaue YOU made a mistake!!?", Cassi agrees "You're not watcha said ya were then? If your God's all lovin' and shit, then why'd she let ya come here and kill everybody!!?". Touka readies her blade "Yeah...there's a lot of bullshit in your story, but that last line cuts it!", Mein aims her bow at him "Yeah, there's many other lives here, and you'll kill them all to correct something you did?! That doesn't sound heavenly to me!". The General leaps over the rest of Nonet and stomped at Faire! The angel replies "Don't... you'll suffer.. Let me explain...", Cassi sliced with a new-Glam she found, but falls backwards as her own blood sprays from her!!! The others angrily stare in shock "General!!!" Prata yells, Mein then orders "Kill him!!". They all attack, but fall back as blood sprays everywhere!!! Elli steps back in terror... Aeryssa shrieks and steps back, too.. Kai only watched in terror as his friends are all sprawled out and bleeding on the ground in a moment.. Keel steps back too, as Silvia held him tightly.. Lys and the Goddesses could only watch, too at how fast the event happened... Faire then says as Topaz-wings and bi-wings grew from his back, a Scorpion-tail grew from them, too and when it sits up, makes it look as if there's a star shining behind Faire: "I tried to tell you...  This how God saved my life.. My mental state is: 'You reap what you Sow'. I did many times... So, when I was about to suffer for no reason... others were given the horror they tried to inflict... that's why I was given the title I was as a angel.."... Faire then sighs as his tail hovers over the group "As I tried to say: I have to undo the world from existence... Everyone knows... Kara even tried to save your lives, before... Though, I knew that many lives, people, dreams and love was born along with this hell.. So I was going to say; that I'll give you a moment to decide what do you want to do, knowing the entire truth. This will be passed through everybody in this world... those who mindsets are love, would be taken by God.. Unforntunately, many others will react exactly like you, and I know many will be left to disappear. Normally, people reincarnate in other worlds, or as demons or animals... But in this case, you'll all die. You'll exist in other worlds.. but you as individuals will be obliterated.. and won't even replace other versions of yourself who've died in other worlds... I'll wait for your decisions, and when I return: God will take everybody who are love.. whether or not they followed their destiny, as SHE's done with me. while the rest will be obliterated by my stopping my descent to this Earth...". He sighs sadly as his tail hovers over Cassi: "I know like Cerys and Yui-the Kara you met. You're strong and proud... you don't want help in a fight and much less someone's help when you suffered a injury, but.. Yet, I still love you...".. she's healed.... Cassi stands up and grimaced at him... Faire then explains "The others will have to be healed by Aeryssa, or one the Goddesses, for if I did this... Unlike Cassi, who has love she's abnegating... you hate me, and would try to will me again as soon as you could move, and a calculated hit would kill you...".. he then warps away, a pink light appears from the area he once hovered in...

 

Lys awes in utter horror... while Selene heals everyone... The General glared "Fuck him.. Fuck th' damned angels and gods!!", Prata adds "Yeah! Talking about Love and shit... why th' fuck is some freak gonna murder us!!?", Touka adds "Because it's all a lie! The General was right to be suspicious of the first bitch that came up!"... Mein turns towards them "We have to counter! If the gods want to destroy the world, there's something we need to do, something we have to do. How are we going to achieve the peace we want with both sides coming at us, though?"... Cassi almost replied when Silvia shouts "Stop it! I... I don't think you should!", They ignore the girl as the General continues "There's only one thin' that can stop them.. well, that priss that was here earlier: Demon shit... I mean, angels an' demons are th' same thing, right?!". Kai interrupts "Wait General! I think you should think about this! Yeah, it's harsh, but he said God will take everybody with Him.. or Her. And everybody said we reincarnate... I don't think Faire's killing anybody or even ending lives... He's taking everyone who reincarnated until now... Well, God is.. It's hard to explain, but nobody died in this world, who was left behind; they're alive again, and God's probably just taking everyone who changed, and..."... The General yells "Get away, idiot! I'm tryna think of a battleplan! Don't protect that bitch, either! It doesn't matta what he's tryna do, he's killing people and what we want! If we're happy then why's he's destroyin' everythin'?! We should do what we want, and God, and th' demons and shit shouldn't interfere!"., he backs away as Keel says "Now wait a minute, general... Silva and Kai hassa point. If everybody is circulated when they die, and by the same token are reincarnated in this world, I mean, you and Senior Lys and Senior Prata are that, right? Then why fight him? This way we all get out and get to live happily together instead of doin' this forever? it's like a ridiculous game by now...", Cassi retorts "If ya wanna side wit' the prisses, fine! But When they die, you will too!"... Keel takes Silvia's hand, and they both backs away as The general turns towards her team again... Ellis watches in tension and fear as Kuroh shrugs and leaves the area... Sarah scoffs "That's exactly why you're all gonna bur, you know?? You're given chances and all you can care about is continuing whatever the hell you're doing.. It's not like they're bullying you, something that happened before you were born is being undone, and you're even given a option to get in heaven for free! But you're tossing it away because you like being muscle bound morons?", the General looks up "I'm tired of bitches, too! If ya ain't gonna help: stop hoverin' around our heads, you fucks!!!" she yells and slings her Glam! Sarah angrily glares and creates a white-hot fire in her hand, until Selene flies in front of her "Stop!! Don't do it! It's already bad enough they can't understand what's going on, please don't make it worse? At very least, come with us and see who we HAVE changed in the little time we've been here..." she asks... The flame replies "Alright, fine... I rather see someone with common sense, anyway...", the goddesses leave the garden as Nonet continues talking iver their battleplans... Lys watches the team.. until Aeryssa comes near him "Lys..." he turns towards her "!!! I almost forgot...You came back...! Wh, why did you leave?!" he asks.. She replies "because I wasn't sure how much I could take after this... That... 'girl' has been mackin' on you the whole time. And when we got here I find out you're suppose to be together?! So... even when she snatched away from you, I thought you'd still get together and junk, so I just left... But now... I came back and apparently.. she still doesn't like you?? I mean.." she stops smiling "I Thought she wassa tsundere, or somethin'... I didn't know she really didn't... I mean...". Lys starts to feel warm as Aeryssa looks away "Could we talk alone?..." she asks.. Lys replies "Yeah.. of course..", he leads her to his room.. Cassi notices him going away "Hey Cadet, come here an' help us plan our battle!" he calls out. Lys looks over his shoulder "Cassiopeia... I loved you... It sounds crazy because we known each other for only a few months, but that time was precious enough for me to be excited, to look for you after my madness was taken away... and now you still hold on to this world... We have a future guaranteed where we can be together.. And I can see sparkle and glimpses of how beautiful you can be: inside and out, but you'd rather stay here?.. Our paths and views are different, I can't be with you...". The General about faces him: "That was a order, Cadet. Your feelings aren't in this; your Mark is. We need it for the rebellion!" she orders, Lys almost retorts, despite the fear inside.. When the Little-witch says "He isn't in Nonet or whatever your team is, anymore! He belongs to me! Nobody WANTS to be a psychopathic murderer or … anything like you guys, are!", Cassi drew her Glam... but Aeryssa quickly squeezes Lys' hand: which causes his symbol to bleed and they both warp to where he was leading her..

Inside Lys's room, Lys himself and Aeryssa now stand in the center... She faces him.. as opposed to their positions outside and Lys steps aback... "Um.. Um... uh... I..." he starts, she grabs his face and fixated his head-eyes to stare into hers: "Don't be scared, Lys... Or rather, don't be afraid of what you feel.. you look into my eyes, but you never do it for long... Let me see yours...". She says softly.. Aeryssa can feel Lys's cheeks getting hot, she giggles as she continues "What I wanted to say earlier, is what I started back in Paris... I love you, Lys. And now that I know you're not betrothed or wrapped in a Heavenly destiny thing... I want to tell you... I want to be with you for the rest of my life, nomatter how little left it might be. I'm not sure what'll happen, but... I had to tell you in case we DO die.. even before that, I came back to tell you before I left back to the academy... I need you to know!". Lys' face gets even hotter ...he then tries to say "R, really? B, but... I tried to kill you.. A, and when I wa, was Mad... I knew I couldn't of been.. lovable...o or.. And You said you forgave me, but after what I tried to do to magic... You helped me SO Much and I only hurt you.. I...", Aeryssa interrupts him as she giggles softly "I don't care, Lys… I really don't! We both know you didn't squeeze my neck hard, I was scared, but if you were trying to kill me for real, wouldn't I've gotten welts around my neck?"... Lys realizes he didn't go too far.. as he saw tears forming from her eyes before... she then explains "You know I'm not mad since I can wield magic myself without hurting anything, now... And when we were in that forest that one morning.."... Lys gets hotter as she laughs "I knew you liked me, ha! Plus, you said you love me too, already!". Lys awes In wonder "I did?? Wh, when!!? I.. I never said it.. I... Even when we..." he starts, Aeryssa replies happily: "When we were traveling with Mr Reiner, Kai and Ms Deman, we took a ship to get to Salamanca... but.. you gotten away for everyone, and we were searching for you... I found you and as soon as I did, you said: 'I love you'... I thought it was strange since you were mute... but decided it was just the madness making you act strangely.. but you said it again back at the academy, and when I was researching with only just us, and whenever I was upset... You never said it around anyone else.. and you never ...groped anyone else.." Lys' eyes widened as she continues "So I knew even before... when your inhibitions were gone, that you DID love me... Afterwards, nomatter what you said, or when you let your emotions and feelings take over, you always love me.. even now.. Despite trying to follow some heavenly destiny: you said what you felt and showed me..". Lys asks breathlessly "I did?...", she cheerfully replies "Yeah... You did! You hate magic because it's related to what happened, but you love me as much I do you!". Lys realizes that his feelings are real: not just sensual or from loneliness, but he loves what she did and being around Aeryssa, her kindness towards him also melts his heart as well as looking into her cheerful eyes. Her instinctively puts his arms around the little-witch, she stops giggling and smiles uncontrollably "Wai, wait! I'm gonna be serious!" she says, Lys laughs too "St, stop.. this is suppose to be romantic, right?". She gently replies "Ye, yes!" with a giggle, they lean in and kiss... Aeryssa suddenly holds Lys' head, tightly! Her kiss is innocent and simply on his upper-lip at first, then she turns her head kissed him deeply; there's still innocence and chasity in it, yet.. the deepness and passion makes him drop to his knees somewhat..! Lys staggers back up, as she giggles again "Heehee, sorry! You okay?" she asks cheerfully!
