Welcome Oblivion (Flowers of The Storm # 3)

You...No Longer.

  Kheresket had found herself near Anomolus' cell, as she and the group traveled along the dank underbelly of the Pantheon. Kasdeyae and her brother's dragged Minnaloushe's struggling body down the halls. Kas' chains had slid down from her armor and wrapped themselves around Minna's head covering her eyes, and her mouth. Her senses were being taken away from her one by one. Kheresket could hear Anomolus struggle as she got closer. Naberus turned to her, staring into her speaking to her so no one could hear.

  "End this now Kheresket." she nodded averting her eyes from his hard gaze. Naberus moved closer to her, extending his hand to caress her soft neck, making sure Anomolus could see this as he leaned in and traced her long neck with his lips. Anomolus continued to fight against the chains that bound him, but could do nothing. Kheresket was lost to him. Naberus with his other hand snatched Kheresket by the back of her hair and pulled, she didn't flinch or make a sound just obeyed as Naberus continued to kiss along her neck and down to her breast. He let go of her hair and held her face in his hands. Who knew what lay between them, was it love? There certainly was hate. He knew SHE would obey. His mate would never question him.

  Too much time had passed that he had to sit and wait, watching her. "Make it quick." he said as he bent his tall frame slightly to her, and kissed her lips. Kheresket nodded there were no words she could speak. It was much more sadness and hatred in Kheresket. No one knew if that was entirely a good thing. She watched Naberus as he walked away, how his body moved so fluidly.

  "You don't have to do this Khere..."

  Anomolus' words broke her out of her trance. Kheresket turned her head in his direction. "Oh..?" She said, turning slowly to walk into the small cell that contained him. The spells that kept him in shaped around her body as she entered and bounced back. Her clothes had changed to her usual red flowing robes of silk. It hugged her body and left nothing to the imagination.

  "I don't you say...as I recall you broke my spine for disobeying." She knelt down and leaned in close, he could smell Naberus' scent all over her, it sickened him and she knew it. "What do you think he would do to me for not getting rid of you hmm?

  Kheresket pulled at the thick chains that bound Anomolus exposing his chest. "Kheresket..." She backhanded him hard across the face sending his blood flying across the room. "There is nothing you can say Anomolus it is over." She knew what he was about to say and before he could say anymore she clawed at his cold flesh, his screams fulfilled her lust.

  She wanted him to feel every tear at his body. Once at his heart Kheresket ripped it from him, immediately casting her spell to steady it's rhythm. Blood pooled at Anomolus' mouth but he was still alive. "Oh my love do not worry, you will still live on as per contract your darling children signed. I have to say my mate and Master is very pleased about that." She grinned at the last words.

  At the cells entrance two guards from Naberus' legion appeared crossing their arms over their chest and bowed to the Demoness. Kheresket gave her approval and spoke to them, "A temporary lift has been put on limbo so that you may return take him there and leave his body to rot." The sons did as they were told and dragged Anomolus' lifeless body from his cell. Kheresket still holding his heart summoned a small box and placed it inside. Wrapping a smaller chain around it with a lock and spell inscription.

  She took the box to an area near her private chamber and sealed it into the wall where it could not be found or disturbed. It's inscription held the end of Anomolus' life.

My Wake...
 Minna-

  I can't describe my fear, or my pain, I don't know what they will do to me, I no longer feel the strength of my father. The time of the Madira has passed. At one time I wanted to give in...What's happening to me? What will they do to me?
 Silence...

 
When She'll Stop...

  Kasdeyae grabbed Minna by the arm and spun her around. The demon spoke with a grave voice like her father Naberus but with a feminine touch. The chains that wrapped around her body and armor slid themselves onto Minna. Minna instantly felt cold and her body shivered. "Don't be too afraid." Kasdeyae said as she walked around the room the chains appearing as tendrils from her body.

 "You want to start talking, or should I make you?" she swiftly moved closer to Minna her breath steamed against Minna's skin. "Let me make you...sister." She whispered to her. Minna felt disgusted and pushed against Kasdeyae knocking her back. She wrapped the chains around her arms several times, to pull Kas closer once more and kicked her in the chest.

  Naberus, Kheresket and Kasdeyae's brothers watched from a distance where Minna could not sense them. Kheresket had only just arrived moments before, which thankfully distracted Naberus. He was done playing games with Minna. "Is it done?" He asked looking down at Kheresket. She nodded slightly, and kissed his shoulder. Kheresket watched as her daughter was beaten and dragged all over the room for information. Her blood ran down the walls like a steady rain, but still Minna held on.

 Kheresket walked closer so Minna would sense her presence, their eyes made connection through the thin veil of the magical glass but they could not see each other.

 "Naberus...it was Anomolus."

  Kheresket stepped back from the glass, her fear took over her, she herself wanted to bolt. Naberus walked up behind  her, he ran his hand up her back sending a chill through her spine and held her by the back of the neck.

  "You will not run, what do you mean it was Anomolus?" She began to pant, tears were streaming down her face.

"That's not Minnaloushe..."

  Naberus looked up from Kheresket to the glass, she could feel his anger pulsing through his body.


Welcome to Oblivion (The Reign of the Agathodemon)...

 "He switched her."

  "What the fuck how?" Dezire was in total shock they had heard everything through Kheresket.

  "I've no clue Dezire...but I really don't think we should be around, I just don't know how we're getting away."

 "Well aren't you death?"

Azrael rolled his eyes. "It doesn't work like that Dezire, I figured you would know this by now."

"I'm just sayin'..."

"So is that Anomolus? Minna's dead?" Dezire for the first time was really not sure about anything in this realm. Azrael had his own questions, how did it all slip by him? He still sensed someone's death...Whatever this meant he didn't like it. "I need to find Dionisio."

  Azrael got up, searching the area they were in he knew that he could leave but Dezire couldn't. Using his own shadows he escaped whatever bound them to the area. He didn't want to leave her but as Kheresket's priestess she was always safe. Dezire watched Azrael disappear and suddenly felt alone like she had been so long ago while she was trapped in limbo. She hoped being a priestess was a good thing in this realm.

Severance ( An Interlude )


Undo the chains that bonds us...

 " Don't you think I know that you're watching me?"

  Naberus stood on a balcony outside of the massive pantheon that is House Madira. He leaned his tall slender frame against a railing allowing the wind to catch his betraying hair. Renenet slithered her way up behind him, slowly transforming into a suitable human form.

  She sauntered over to him, her body glistened as the constant setting sun of Amenthes glowed against her body. She gave a twisted smile to the Demon Lord but it wasn't returned, he kept his eyes on her legs for some reason. "It wasssss worth a shot brother." she hissed.

  Naberus picked up an apple from a nearby tray, eying it suspiciously. "Does his royal highness ever get tired of those heavy S's...?" Ren smiled again and placed her hand onto his shoulder, she circled around him as they often do each other to tease. "Never...and...I don't recall you ever complaining either."

  Naberus bit into the apple and said nothing. He thought on it for a few moments, she's quite good. "So who are you stalling for? Can't be Kheresket, shes...resting." Renenet giggled. "Sssso hard to fool Lord Naberussss. But can't a friend say hello?"

  "No..."

  "Let's see 3,000 years ago you..."

  Before he could finish he felt a sharp pain in his back, and the sudden rush of his own blood spew from his mouth. He couldn't move or feel his body, he heard a scream from somewhere other than the room they were in and Ren apologizing several times. What the fuck? is all he could think to himself. He knew his body had hit the floor but he couldn't feel a thing. He just kept hearing screams, though of course it wasn't... Naberus, he took pain quite well. It was Kheresket.

  A figure came close to him and stood there hovering. "Nice move Minnaloushe you and your father have a knack for spines, but I will not release you." Minna tilted her head to the side the cool look on her face was somewhat disturbing considering what she had just done...but not to him. "Oh really? You sorry sack of shit! I rip out your spine and you still want to play?" She was indeed pissed but Naberus just didn't give a damn at this point or at any other point. She tossed his bloody spine on top of him and walked to a chair and sat, the anger circled around her like fumes. If only Naberus could shake his head he would.

  Kheresket was on the other side of the door kicking and screaming the sounds filled the entire pantheon, and all of Amenthes. With her power she could not get through, and he could not command her through. Naberus' eyes landed back to Renenet who moved near the door, but dared not touch it. He was used to her betrayals and expected them, it's what they do. "You know Minna, he said as his eyes traveled back to the hybrid. 'when your mother gets through that door..." Minna shot up from the chair and slammed the spike of her heel to his face. "Shut the fuck up!" Naberus' blood splattered across the wall. Kheresket's rage could be felt throughout Amenthes as she struck him.

  "You may want to eassse up there Princessss." Renenet said. "Your freedom isn't exactly worth the entire realms fall. We won't see the primordial watersss, we'll be destroyed he'll command her to do that. Think." Naberus could feel himself loosing consciousness. Minna didn't care anymore she wanted out of his game, she kicked him repeatedly. "Stay awake asshole. release me!"

  He mouthed "No", and closed his eyes. Minna began to charge for him once more but at last the door burst open. Kheresket stood there looking disheveled as if she ran a marathon. She was accompanied by her priestess Dezire, it was apparent the door had some sort of magic Kheresket could not cross.

  "You..."

  Kheresket backed Minna against a wall, Dezire managed to slip into the room and couldn't believe what Minna had done to Naberus...her feelings towards him had to be set aside for a few. "I just want to be free, why won't you give me that?!?! Minna tried to make her case, Kheresket shook her head in disgust. "I cannot believe that I gave birth to something so pathetic!

  Dezire could feel Azrael's presence moving up the halls, "Khere you may want to hurry." She couldn't tell if Naberus was even awake, he had said nothing since Kheresket came into the room. Kheresket had ignored her warning, and continued her abuse and throw threats toward Minnaloushe.

  "I should kill you where you stand."

  "Naberus is dying Kheresket..." Dezire spoke softly.

  Kheresket turned to look at Dezire, her eyes were souless black. Minna began to inch past her but Kheresket caught her while still looking at Dezire. Her hand was wrapped tightly around Minna's throat as she slammed her into the stone wall.

 "HE cannot die!" she roared as she stared down Dezire. Naberus opened his eyes and watched Kheresket and Minna. He had no clue if he was going to heal from this shit if she ever stopped talking that is, but her and her child's relationship was broken. Kheresket hated Minna more than anything and it was his fault. he couldn't understand why she didn't blame him.

  Hell is wrong with Kheresket's brain? He thought as he searched.

  "Kheresket..."

  She stopped immediately and turned to Naberus, finally realizing what Minna had done. "How long are you going to let me die here?" She started to walk over to him but Minna tried to interfere, Naberus at full strength would be dangerous for her, bad enough Kheresket. Kheresket had picked up Minna, and snapped her neck. Azrael walked in just as it happened and sat on the railing of the balcony. "That should shut you up for awhile." Kheresket was disgusted, and preferred to do more than that.

  Renenet looked to Azrael, he sat calmly on the railing. "He's not dying, he said. I was just bored."

  Dezire shook her head in Azrael's direction. "Damn..."

  Kheresket knelt down to Naberus and looked him over. "You've been in worse shape." "Yes...I was about to mention it to Renenet until she well betrayed me again. Kheresket looked towards her sons lover. Ren looked down towards the floor. "Forgive me Mistresss you know my love hate thing with Lord Naberusss."

  "I do."

  Kheresket leaned closer to him as if to place a kiss on his lips. She took both his hands and held them against her face. The thin streams of her life force flowed into him, healing him. Once again he had feeling in his body. Naberus kissed Kheresket allowing her to stop. Dezire watched what transpired, and couldn't believe it. It answered all of her questions though.

 They were interrupted by three individuals that appeared at the door ones Dezire had never seen. They were Amenthiens, real Amenthiens stunningly gorgeous beings. Azrael came back in and seated himself next to Dezire. "You know who they are? He asked her. "No but by the looks I can tell you they are Naberus and Kheresket's sons...do you get the feeling that we aren't really in the room anymore?" "We're not Renenet answered. Naberus shut us out the moment his sons entered. When it comes to his "legion" no outsiders." They watched as the sons kneeled before Kheresket but gave no address as her being their mother. Naberus shook his head at Kheresket telling her no. Dezire sort of understood what it meant.

  None of his legion are to ever acknowledge Kheresket as their mother or be destroyed. Kneeling was all she would get. They were worried about Naberus and they spoke in Amenthien a language that is not written in books. Kheresket fed this information to Dezire since she could not hear it. She even got snippets of their dead language which was beautiful and hard to pronounce, it was even lost to Kheresket.

  Minna had awoken eventually and was not happy to find three towering demons above her, ready to strike her down. Plus Naberus and Kheresket. Renenet had to make her leave as she was summoned away by a different house, she winked at Naberus and transformed back to her cobra form and slithered off. Naberus already had plans to get her back.

  Azrael continued to watch just as Dezire did there was nothing they could do. She continued to watch the sons closely it was hard to be in their presence. One in particular looked back at her with it's gold eyes and smiled at Dezire it's sharp fangs flashed against the ever present sun in the distance. "Azrael..." she leaned to the side and said. Azrael looked in Dezire's direction....something didn't seem right. "I figured all of his legion were male but I guess I was wrong." "Oh?" "That one in the middle the slightly taller one... that's a woman and I've seen her..."

  "Is there something you aren't telling me Dezire? because death is close and I'm not sure who it is...."

  Dezire couldn't speak she felt her throat close, the woman turned once again but stood in place. Azrael looked directly at her for the first time and stood up. Kheresket, Naberus, and the other two that held Minnaloushe were behind the woman. He knew her as well, very well.

  "Kasdeyae..."
