Void holds my gaze then looks away... unable to keep it. "if it was not me alone it would be all of us" he mutters and I guess he meant the other reapers, they where all like brothers in arms the five of them. he glances back at Elune to see her and turns back to me to once again allow us to see eye to eye "you will see in a moment" I narrow my eyes a little at this, unsure of what he was referring too. his arm suddenly strikes towards my chest, panic grips me as his hand curls around my dark crystal... no... I look up at him, eyes wide and full of shock and betrayal. he looks away and his hand closes forcefully..
I watched as the crystal shattered in his grip, stumbling back as a force wrapped itself around my heart and seemed to squeeze. My breathing suddenly came back and became almost none existent once again when each shard hit the ground will a small audible clink… a darkness surrounded me, swirling around my feet in fragments, as newly created shadows lost control- they wreaked havoc then stilled and faded into ash. Some shadows which I had been controlling for eons stayed at my side, they rained down in the room in spear like movements and patterns. In a daze I looked towards where my crystal once was, it was gone, shattered, on the floor in pieces and while I had seen this just mere moments ago my mind was sluggish to catch up, not comprehending what had happened just yet.
My form shifted into my demon one once more, my eyes bled into back as my expression turned neutral. I felt something tug at my heart. Breathing seemed harder now than when I tried in my vampire from which was an obvious impossibility but I just felt like it. Shadows crackled around my fingertips as the ones in the area fade into ash. I close my eyes, focusing on breathing at the moment. I could hear the commotion around me, deafening in my ears. Any injuries I had sustained no longer bled sand, the grains began to be stained with a thick black before that took over as my blood.
I raised my hands, eyes still closed, almost like a puppet on strings in a way. I opened them and could see the souls around me, all shining brightly and all so stunning to the eyes…. If only they could see what I saw… I look with a blank expression towards Elunes soul and see hers- dark, corrupted, fake… and I also see Rivers- bright, beautiful and, thankfully, not tainted by Elunes… I make motions as if holding the two souls in my hands and I could feel the ghostly weight. I swallow, it feels hard to do so and I can taste metal. With the two souls feeling like they were in my hand I pulled them apart or tried too, they were stuck tightly
together and doing this from a distance was difficult. Suddenly my arms fell to my side… I couldn’t do it… I couldn’t separate them without my conduit and being this distance.
I panted a little but remained starting at their souls… had to do something, I had to, I needed to. Shadows swirled around my fingers, I knew only one thing I could do but I hadn’t done it before… I couldn’t since it was only now in this state could do so… I stood on a side and placed my right leg a little behind myself while bringing my hands together in the middle. From there I remained in the Soul Realm, I looked at everyone’s souls one last time, marvelling at their colours, their light, their brightness, their purity in each one. I hovered a little on each one, Silvers was such an old soul but she was still a child at heart, shining brightly like the day I created it and just as pure... no wonder me and Lenue picked her. Elias’ was bright as well, not dulled by either one of his species sides and though lilac was more of a feminine colour it just matched his soul and him, I could see his even with the thick walls between us. Rivers, though merged with one which was surrounded by darkness, managed to be blinding in that void of corruption, it was like a beacon of hope…
I manage a slow and painful breath in to steady myself. I no longer look towards them and only at Elunes and Rivers. My hands part a little and a crackling ball of death magic is forms in them, black as night itself and surrounded by shadows to help me contain it and make sure it stayed on track when I released it. I let it grow, making- no- forcing it to become bigger until I struggled with it. I grunt a little with the effort, dust and shadows spinning around me as I worked most of my remaining power into it, the rest would be to control the shadows. Pain rippled through me at the effort, I heard something break and a pain in my chest, cracks appear in my horns and tail and I clench my jaw until that hurt as well. I swallow, breath in once then breath out once before I push it forwards, using my whole body to fire it in the right direction. It breaks off in high speeds towards Elune, growing in size without me needing to make it now and swerves around Void.
Shadows guide it, shoving it forwards and making sure the orb only heads in Elunes direction. Though this wouldn’t hurt pure souls it was filled with so much dark magic- the magic I used to crush souls and send them on their way when a person was deemed evil- that if it hit anyone other than Elune, it wouldn’t kill them but would just dissolve and it would be a power wasted.
I stand for a moment, looking with heavy eyes at what I had done. I didn’t know what to expect from this and I just hoped I had helped the group in some way. I fall forwards, into Void. he was shocked though I knew he knew what would have happed. I could see his soul, wrapped in many chains with five padlocks around it- one for each reaper... so he had taken the punishment for them, that was why he was by Elunes side while the others where free to flee, he had sacrificed himself and couldn't do anything with these chains around his soul. I could see a single chain- almost taut- attached to Elunes.... so that's how she did it. Void manages to steady me in a way and before I could allow my soul vision to fade I reach in to his chest, towards his soul. his eyes widened but he knew what I was doing so allowed me to carry on, despite the discomfort it may cause. I hold the main padlock in my hand, it was the one for his soul anyway. I work the last of my magic into it and it dissolves into my hand like dust. with the main padlock gone the others break away also and the chains slip off, freeing him and his connection.
I manage to retract my hand in the last second and its his turn to stumble back in pain. he drops to his knees with the amount of pain and I can even see Elune being effected by this. Void and the other reapers will no longer be bound to her... they where free. The move and the amount of power I had used had drained me beyond compare and with my crystal broken I didn’t know what to do… that move was the last of my powers… some shadows lingered and gently swirled around my fingers in a comforting matter but I did not control them nor really felt their pretence, I felt a coldness from them but that was it. I fell forwards and onto the floor, something cracking in my chest as I hit the stone.
My eyes felt heavy and I just wanted to give in and close them but I felt like I shouldn’t, something not wanting me to just yet… my breathing was a little laboured now and I could feel warm, wet blood pool around me, I had, no doubt, also had internal bleeding as well. I remain where I am, it was up the rest now… sorry I think sorry for leaving you with her… this was never my intention to leave you alone I then realise I didn’t wish to leave them alone but how could you know ones time if that one had no soul? I didn’t know when I was supposed to go, it could be today, sometime in the future or even years ago… I just focused on them, no longer able to see their souls but just them as I saw them before and how they saw one and another.
I stayed awake… I stayed awake for them… for them… a very faint smile graces my lips even in this from. My black eyes glazed over a little but I kept them open.
(About the move, I haven’t stated if it hits Elune so that is still your choice guys. It could hit her fully, miss or graze her, either way Solvus is now out of the fight. This move is massively powerful but since Elune is also a dark magic user and the move is death and dark(well shadows which control it, the ball of energy is death magic XD), even if it hits her in full force it could do a lot of damage with the overall power of the move and it would probably leave her hurt but since they are the same type it won’t kill her so you guys will still have to fight, this would just weaken her a good deal. That is if you even want to move to hit you River? If you don’t its fine :) just go with it! If could graze her and the effect will still be the same just the power of the attack will be less, so it still wouldn’t be the most effective thing in the world but it could do something to help :) or it could miss lol there is a chance of a miss since the shadows moving it aren’t controlled by Solvus anymore, they will make sure the magic is contained in a orb and not hit any innocent souls but other than that I can’t help it if Elune jumps out of the way at the last second- they can’t do a sharp U-turn lol. Rivers soul will be fine by the way, the orb won’t affect her soul and it shouldn’t hurt her either but then again it can be your decision :) but just because her soul is innocent you would think that the orb/shadows wouldn’t aim at Elnue because the two are merged but the orb/shadows will since Rivers soul is under all that darkness and corruption so its hidden by Elunes aura so to speak. Okay im gonna stop talking now XD sorry for the massively long ass comment XD wrote this in advance as well just in case something like this happened. this was long ass XD sorry!)
