Part 1 of Chapter 27A Chapter by Layla J Omorose
Rasai stood at the Wall of Dreams that resided in the throne room of his temple. So intently was he focused on the three dream mirrors in front of him that he didn’t feel the air shift as Radien appeared a few paces behind him.
His ears twitched at the sound of his name. “Radien…it’s good to see you finally up and walking around.” The Universe spoke with his eyes still on the mirrors.
Coming to stand beside him Radien swept a curious eye over the mirrors. The mirror furthest to the left showed nothing but a wooden door and a lamp. The next one held an earthly beauty surrounded by a dense forest whose face he couldn’t make out. But it was the last one that made his heart ache. There in front of him was the Dream Mirror of his mate, of them smiling and rolling around on the beach where he’d first met her. In his arms she was safe and happy…
“She dreams of you every night.” Rasai spoke. Out the corner of his eye Radien looked at him closely. The being frowned as he watched the mirrors. Worry and sadness reflected in his stare. Radien wondered what was on his mind so heavily to cause Rasai to look totally defeated. …but then again he knew didn’t he. Iraon was mostly all any of them could think about.
“Do you always watch her dreams? When we are together?” Radien asked solemnly.
A smirk played on the corners of Rasai’s lips. “No. I do not wish to go blind.”
His remark made Radien chuckle but as quick as the moment came it was gone. That longing ache came back into his chest. “I take it these are the dreams of my brothers’ mates.”
“Yes.” Rasai replied.
Radien nodded. For a few moments neither of them spoke. Each lost in his own world. It was Rasai who broke the dense silence between them.
“You have come here for a reason. There is something on your mind.” Rasai faced him then waiting for his response.
“He’s going to go after the women.”Radien turned and returned Rasai’s stare.
“Yes.” Rasai gave a heavy sigh. “We have our hands full.” Turning Rasai walked towards his throne. Radien turned and walked behind him, but not before he took another longful look at his mate through the dream mirror.
“He’s going to unleash Azuzel and Invidion, and then the Trio will be complete. All that would be left to free would be…”
“Gazini” Radien finished for him. That’s what he was afraid of. If Iraon wasn’t stopped then there was no help from them. One beast was enough to cause chaos but all three would cause the annihilation of every species. Then with Gazini free darkness would reign.
“Isn’t Alrik supposed to be guarding Gazini’s prison? How could they get past Alrik?” Radien questioned.
“That is how the story goes…but no one knows if it is true. Alrik has not been seen or heard from for more than a milinena. He could be guarding Gazini or he could be somewhere else.”
“But surely he would stop the beast.” Because Radien refused to believe that Alrik would just let the Trio come and take Gazini without so much as a fight.
“I doubt it…Alrik rule is to maintain balance no matter the cost. He will not fight The Trio because they are not his to fight. They are yours and your brothers.” Rasai paused. “The Trio and The Trinity keep the balance between the powers. Therefore is one is killed the balance is broken.”
Great it just kept getting better and better. “How do we stop him?” Radien asked. “We find your brothers and the other two women. Before Iraon does…” Rasai paused. “A war is about to begin. Are you ready?”
Radien looked back at Melody’s Dream Mirror, she was smiling. So beautiful. Radien thought. He would take on the whole underworld if it would keep her safe. His eyes glowing from repressed fury he pinned Rasai with a hard stare. “Do I have a choice?”
Preparing himself for his welcome Adien made his way to Rasai’s throne room. The moment he appeared in the room he was thrown into the far wall of the room. Pissed he pushed his way to his feet and whipped the small spot of blood from the corner of his mouth.
“You are not welcomed here Adien…leave before I throw you out.” said Rasai form his throne.
Well now I know who to kill first. “Yeah and remember what happened the last time you tried that Rasai.” Adien replied with a smirk as he busted off his clothes.
“Hound you are not welcomed in my domain…” Rasai growled as he pushed himself from his seat, his eyes burning with the need for revenge, with his staff gripped thightly in his hand as he made his way towards Adien.
“Rasai calm down…I be damned if you killed him before my woman is back in my arms again.” Radien baked at the Universe.
Adien gave Rasai a mocking grin as he watched Rasai reluctantly settle back down into his oversized chair. As Adien turned his attention to his brother the dream mirror behind him caught his eye. Instantly he was pulled to the green forest of one dream, his pulse quicked.
What the hell? Adien thought as he shook his head clear.
“Is she healed?” Radien asked, drawing Adien’s attention back to him.
The pleading look in his brother’s eyes touched something in him and he immediately wished it would go away.
“Bion is healing her now but she needs a transfusion…” He turned to face Rasai. “That’s what Bion sent me here for. I need your help in finding her sister.” Adien told Rasai then turned his attention towards the Dream Mirror. He couldn’t stop staring at the mirror, there was something about the woman wondering in the forest that drew him…and he didn’t like it. Then it went blank and the image of the earthly beauty that held him captive was gone.
“Go through that mirror you were just ogling over.” Rasai told him with a hit of distain in his voice.
Both Radien and Aiden looked at the blank mirror.
“How is he supposed to go through a Dream Mirror when she is awake?” Radien asked Rasai with a questioning frown. Last he remembered you couldn’t travel through a Dream Mirror when the person was awake…right?
“Trust me.” Rasai smirked at Adien.
The brothers looked at each other. One with pleading eyes and the other feeling mistrust crawl up through his body, last time Adien trusted Rasai he almost got his head bit off…literally
Adien didn’t like this idea. Couldn’t Rasai just teleport him to her or give him a mental image of where she was so he could go there himself…but what other choice did he have, all eyes were on him and waiting impatiently for him to move.
Deciding to trust Rasai, Adien walked over to the blank mirror. Slowly he touched his hand to the smooth surface of the mirror. He looked back at Rasai. “Nothing is…” before he could finish his sentence he felt himself being pulled into the mirror. Feeling as if he was being ripped apart….He made a mental note to kill Rasai. Then he was sucked completely into the mirror and thrown into a dark closet.
He’s going to kill me. Anxiously Sofaria paced the dark hall outside her bedroom. Her heart was racing, her palms were sweating, and she was shaking. She was more than certain that Iraon knew by now that Melody had escaped. Just like he would know that it was because of her that helped his only weapon against her cousins had escape. For that she had no doubt that he would take her head. She just hoped it was quick and fast but deep down she knew better. Iraon wasn’t that merciful and he would torture her before he killed her. The thought of running had crossed her mind more than once, but she knew he would catch her before she got away from the castle.
Damn it. She hated being on both sides of the fence. Of course she was more bad than good, being a hound of darkness. But she did have a heart…some days. She stopped her pacing and looked around her. The old castle that resided in the
What am I to do? She kept asking herself. But she kept coming up blank. Her pacing intensified.
There was nothing she could do. All that remained was for Iraon to appear…which is what he did in the next second, as he appeared in the path of her pacing. Too wrapped up in her own thoughts to notice the change in the air or Iraon standing right in front of her, she walked right into his massive chest causing her to stumble backwards.
“Iraon.” She gaped at him as her instincts told her run and hide. Her nerves getting the better of her she avoided eye contact with him.
The rage poring off of him betrayed the calmness that he showed as he stared down at the top of her head. Not being able to actually foucs on anything else in the darkness she brought her gaze back to him and had it not been for the color change in his eyes he would appeared calm, but Sofaria knew better. He was a few moments away from ripping her head off. She took a step backwards and cringed when her back came up against the slimly skin of the devil.
Gritting her teeth she was torn between two emotions; fear and rage. She feared Iraon but she wanted her vengeance on the devil so bad it took all she had not to forget about Iraon and attack the creature. Her anger grew even more when she felt his clawed hand push her forward towards Iraon. The slime on her back makde her T-shirt stick to her skin.
“Seems I can’t leave you along for too long…” She could hear the uncontrolled anger in his voice. A mix between his human one and his beat one that made her tremble all the more. He took a step towards her and in response she took a step back and once again felt the claw of the devil, this time it didn’t push her forward but wrapped around her body, squeezing her. She could feel her ribs starting to crack as she struggled in the creatures’ grasp. He picked her up in the air, out the corner of her eyes she could see his red eyes on her while his serpent tongue glided over the first rows of his teeth.
“Great Beassst…let me kill her.” He squeezed tighter making her gasp for air. She had been fading into darkness when she heard his voice. Something in her screamed for her to kill him, she vowed that she would kill him before he killed her and she intended to keep that promise. Fighting she let her K9’s grow and bit into his hand. This was the one time she found herself thankful of being mated to the ugly monster. Had she been anyone else the slime of his body would have killed her. He dropped her to the ground, the moment her feet touched the floor she sprang at him again, shifting from her human form to her hound form aiming stright for his throat
