The image was spectacular. It was brief and sudden. It was quick and lethal. It was filled with excitement as well as fear.
Sadly it was not enough for Oedipus. If there was something Oedipus could do. Then he would restrain the beast and unleash it later on. And Oedipus smile when think about such thing, about the image of the horror of these human when they saw their friends betray him. Such happiness could he gain from seeing such things happened? How many will die in pain and grief after being surprised by their comrade? Oedipus takes a deep breath, enjoying the excitement that has painted his inner room. And the room shaken as Oedipus sigh, releasing a strong and cold wind across the places. The image on the wall is quickly washed away as Oedipus shake his head, disappointed in the Beast. A cruel and maniac tone coming out from Oedipus mouth, making those beings under him to bow down. The edict from their beloved God was simple, and the people rejoice for hearing His words.
“You see, that is what separate Me and the Beast. The Beast know no boundary to chase after their stupidity thirst of blood. They knew no arts, making them to be hindered. The only thing they are good at is making ME happy.”
And slowly, Oedipus lifted himself up from the throne to take a few steps. With each steps Oedipus took, thousand being crushed into mud under their God’s weight. And Oedipus care not about those things, the things that he had created.
Outside, Oedipus slowly moves toward Anni, who is crying over the pile of mud and ground. What make the Beast in no longer more on this earth, yet the little girl still weeps for. Oedipus think while continues to walk closer to the little girl. Ah. Yes, for a pile of grass, earth, and tons of bacteria that probably come from her presence.
The woman that had helped him previously is now being taken care by the Little Angel. And the Jester is now talking with the Mechanical. Although he could not listen to what others said, what Michael just say really want to make him laugh. And from his inner thought, Oedipus thinks it is going to be real fun to see Mr. Police lose in this game of “stop Annie from crying.”Slowly kneeled down so that his head would be equivalent to Annie, Oedipus began to say his thought with a sincere voice. “ I always wondered why would man cried for nothingness? Would they certainly think their tears would make the dead to re-live? Or would they hope the dead will know that they are crying for him? I really don't know the reason why.”
Oedipus then turns to look at Annie, whose eyes had become to red due to her continuous crying. The sound of her sobbing can still be heard and all of that only make Oedipus to be happier. But outside, the bird face was filled with sadness and seem to be lost by what just happen. Two red orbs of dancing fire becoming small and turn into a blue and cold color. And a shaken voice from the beast as it look directly into the Annie. “Then tell me, why do you cry? And what is this boredom and uncomfortable feelings called?”
