War will change Everything
Golkai and Delthrael
Long had it been since the lord of war had been able to use his godly powers, but longer still had it been since he had heard that bell.
He had no hurry to flock to the bell right away, biding his time and finishing his dinner in the company of some of his mercenaries who were working for him in Syria.
Lucius Elium was his official name on ID cards, but amongst these mercenaries he was only known as Big G. His base of operations were an old excavation site inside a large cave, it had large rooms and storage space. It had served as a hold-out place in the various wars in the region.
They didn't know where Lucius, or rather Golkai came from, what he truly was planning to do in Syria. But people knew that he did pay good money for capable soldiers. He was known to meddle in various conflicts all around the region, to some extent didn't make much sense to most people. Some might even had wondered if he fought to end the wars at all.
Lucius, or rather Golkai as he had been called in the heavens, was someone whom truly wanted to fight forever. The return of his powers and the bell had however unsettled him. He had gotten used to his existance as a human, fighting wherever he could find a fight.
But as it now stood, many of the gods would surely seek revenge on Desious, he whom had exiled them all. Golkai was not fond of the idea of someone very passive or too kindhearted messing up the earth and all his fun, nor did he approve of the idea of someone who was out to destroy it.
All of a sudden as he had taken the last bite out of his piece of chicken he'd felt as if he was being watched. He figured it had to be one of his own kind paying him a visit, but for what reason? "All of you. Leave. I would like to be alone now."
Golkai said out loud in a firm tone of voice, his mercenaries stopped in their talking and drinking, some may have thought of asking him why but quickly reconsidered. They began to leave."Me too sir?"
One large fellow who was working as his bodyguard, not like he ever needed one. But he made a fine servant and could take care of minor tasks."Yes."
Golkai said in a deep voice. Waiting until the bodyguard had left the room aswell before he turned his attention to the far right of the room."I know you are there. Show yourself."
He said out loud and narrowed his eyes slightly. Behind a wooden pillar a figure stepped forth, clad in a long brown garment which resembled a robe, he carried a bag around his waist, seemingly with books. And on his lower back a wrapped package containing something the length of an arm and a half."It has been a long time, Lord Clash."
A slightly echoing voice replied to him, in a clear but unmistakable tone which may have been sounding both polite aswell as high and mighty. Golkai awaited until the figure had fully stepped forth. His eyes scanned the figure carefully and the void-like hood, first not recognizing whom it was."Alternius..."
He said softly, as if almost a whisper. The robed individual took a few steps further."That is one of my many names, but names can change over time as you certainly must be aware of."
The robed person lowered his hood revealing his shoulderlong blonde hair and blue eyes. "Though change is not just limited to names alone. That can I, Delthrael promise you."
Golkai relaxed somewhat in his chair. "So... what can I help the Lord of change with? I cannot imagine you came to speak of days of old or have abit of food with me?"
Golkai chuckled and took a swig of his alcohol."Oh nay, I came to here for another reason. You bear the means of swift travel, that is what I came for partly. I've known your whereabout for ages, since you tend to cause war wherever you walk. Time is of the essence however."
Delthrael spoke out as a matter of fact."Is it now? What's the matter? Is Death going to die on us?"
Golkai replied in a jesting tone, but also in a mocking sense. The blonde man in turn offered a faint smile, one which would send out a thousand chills through Golkai's spine."Perhaps. After all... nothing is truly eternal. We have walked here for a long time, yet all things have their ends. Now it is time to change the board abit. Rearrange the pieces upon it."
Delthrael dramatically made a motion with his hands."Heh. So what are you going to do?"
The god of war asked."Oh dear brother, it is not what I am going to do, but what -we- must do. First off all brother, you shall take us to where the bell was rung. Secondly we shall relieve Desious of his control over the dead. He deserves some rest after all. And a different scenery.""Are you suggesting some kind of rebellion?"
Golkai furrowed his eyebrows."Oh nay, I am not saying that. Yet sometimes one has to fight in order to achieve certain results. Change is required and sometimes sacrifices must be made to bring it about."
Delthrael gave a smile which could only be described as that of a usurper."You know what? Now when I think about it. It would be fun to have a big damn war. A war of wars. A big and fun one. Tell you what, Delly. I will take us both to the place where the bell rung. I'll come back to you later on that other thing."
Golkai reached the spearlike weapon leaning against his chair and allowed the banner to fall out. Displaying the uniformed insignia of the soldiers under his command. He then proceeded to move to the middle of the large room they've both stood within. "Come here then. Just don't do anything stupid before I've thanked Desious for all the fun and appologized for all the dead I've sent his way."
Grinning as he awaited the blonde man to step forward. Delthrael raised his hood back up, letting it conceal his face as he walked up.
Then Golkai slammed the bottom part of his spear that the banner was attached to against the floor, causing them both to teleport all the way to the place where the bell had been heard. With a sound similar to a loud thunderclap they've appeared right in front of Amos, Cyl and David."Hahaha... well look at what we've got here! It's my favorite brother who knows when to shut up! Good job guarding the gate by the way."
Golkai grinned and offered a thumb up in a somewhat mocking way, but the overall tone of his voice was in a good mood.
He then put his eyes on Cyl and David. "Whose these again? Doesn't look like Carvux. Servix? What was his name again the star maker?"
Golkai scratched his cheek as if trying to remember their names and faces. While Golkai was standing there pondering, the robed individual behind him stepped forwards, passing by Golkai on his left side and suddenly batlike wings potruded through his back and then he flapped them out in a dramatic display."My my, I do hope your time here on earth has changed your view on many a different thing?"
He let the voidlike hood show his face as he looked towards them from under it with his ghostlike blue eyes, strands of blond long hair visible. Delthrael moved his wings closer to his body and let them fall slightly over his form almost as if using them as a shield. "Death requires a judge whom shall judge him, will you be that judge for all of us, brother Amos? Will you be the bringer of justice?"
Delthrael gave Amos, Cyl and David a faint smile which some might consider to be a warm smile. That or a venom dipped command.
Aid those who are in flight
Galviere had reacted very quickly to her powers returning to her, a sense of joy and new hope overcoming her. "Finally at long last!"
She began to use her powers to treat the ill of the small tribal community she was living in before deciding that she needed to be off.
After all, she couldn't miss out this chance. She was not going to be powerless ever again. So she had to do all within her power to safeguard her being a goddess and that of heaven's purity. During all the years she had walked the earth, she had not much material belongings apart from her sword and some medicine, but she had enough to make a long trip.
She made her way through the jungle and then to a more modern community which had access to cars where she took a bus to a nearby airfield and got into a small airplane. This would take her to a larger airport where she could arrange a longer flight. Galviere cursed at herself for locating herself in such a remote location of the world. Because of it she would now possibly be late. Then she felt guilt, since she did enjoy helping those people and regarded them all as her family now.
But for now what awaited her was a long flight followed by another flight. Her sword would be taken along as a archelogical finding which she had permits for. She had arranged these many years prior when some have asked her about her weapon when she had carried it with her into a more modern community.@Rune_Alchemist@Lord Zee
