TLoS LM 28: Trial of Faith pt2As like before, the guardians entered , and sat, facing the audiance, and the candidates.
"Greeting, once again. Candiadtes and their friends and family." Terrador greeted them. "Today, we begin our thrid trial. The Trial of Faith. But what is this trial? I shall tell you now. This trial is different fro mthe others; Cyril..." Cyril then spoke.
"The Trial of Faith is a trial each candidate must face alone, and one at a time." Then, a column of light emerged from the floor; the light faded and turned into a calestrial door. "One candiadte, and one at a time, will enter this door, alone, and simply pass down it's corridor. You will be constantly tempted; tempting you with everything you want and need. You must not take, or even touch these tempations, or you will instantly fail. Continue down the path, and sacrifice something of value to yourself. And then... Well... Nobody has ever gotten that far. Why? Because they don't, truely, have faith in our words. You will be rewarded if
Malefor: God of Malevolence.* * *
Within the firy darkness of the realm of Convexity, the twisted dimension's new king paced angrily, enfuriated at his imprisonment here again...
"That rat..." Malefor snarled, furious (as per usual). "...She dares, to betray ME?! After EVERYTHING I've given her! Power, glory... Every foolish worm would bow to her in fear, if she only remained loyal..." On a table made of black polished wood (which had a somewhat unnatural air to it), lay a picture of a young black dragoness. Malefor took the picture, and hung it on a wall in his quarters.
"But you betrayed me... You did, didn't you?" the Dark Master snarled, talking to the picture as though it was a real person sitting in the room with him. "AND FOR WHAT?!? Love?" Malefor laughed at what seemed proposterous to him. "Freedom? What is Freedom?" the purple dragon stroked the face of the dragoness on the picture, admiring the beauty of her body for a breif while. "Freedom is... Fickle. Fickle,
E'sS 30: Becoming The Father.* * *
Ddraig continued to hold Eve in his embrace for what felt like hours; tighter than he ever had before. And he continued to do so, until she fell asleep in his wings.
...Gently, he set her down in her bed; he had to think about some things...
He sat himself down, next to her bed, and watched her sleep. He looked at Eve, and felt something inside him. He'd always felt it in some way, but this time, it was stronger. It felt good; Ddraig WANTED to feel it.
He continued to look at Eve, who was sleeping softly, her chest rising and lowering gently as she clutched her dragon ragdoll in her claws. He sighed; things were piecing together inside his mind. He wanted to keep her safe, he always wanted that; her wanted to keep her fed and healthy, he always wanted that too; but now, now he wanted her; and he didn't always want that...
...Slowly, Ddraig padded up to his room, he needed to think, alone. He settled down in his bed, thinking... Right up un
E'sS 29: Anger and Anguish pt2"What have I done?" Ddraig stammered again. "Oh..."
He slumped to the floor, covering his face with his paws, letting out a low, loud sob. He'd hit her! He'd hit his own step-daughter. He wished it would never be, but deep down, he knew that his father's raging blood, blood Ddraig himself was infected with, would corrupt him to violence himself. He just hoped, prayed, he would never do what he'd just done.
Then, his own memories returned to him.
first came his memories of his time in the temple, but not happy memories; he'd deliberately turned down every potential lovemate who ever got close to him, the only friends he had were the guardians, he didn't care about friends, he only wanted to be better than his father.
The next were memories of Eve... Ddraig let out a moan of despair. He'd never ONCE said he loved her... And that's something she'd ALWAYS said to him... She loved him, and he simply pushed her away. Just like he pushed away everyone else who ever loved him...
