Ala: Seven Deadly Sins.
Play me - I will give you sweetness to listen to while this odd woman blabbers for a while
Previosly – We met Ala who decided to tell us about her life as a Demon, then a wolf, girl, woman thing decided to follow her around, but she grew on her. It turns out Lottie was indeed her Guardian sworn to protect her. The her past come and bit her in the ass, forcing Ala to made decisions one would normally not wish on their enimies and here we are.
Reason – It is a voice in your head telling you things you should do, the basis or motive for an action, decision, or conviction. An underlying fact ot cause the provides logical sense for a premisis. What makes us choose these things? Who would really know, maybe it was god, if there even is one. In that crutial moment when you head starts to spin, and you realise the things you actually hold dear, even if they are the things people would not expect.
“WAIT.....” I squeeled.
Panic struck me as I looked on. Stalling stalling..... I didn't want to admit defeat, I though Lottie was going to magic her way here and save me, but it did not seem that was going to happen. Funny how even though you know someone for such a short time but learn to love them. I miss cuddling her as a dog and her perky attitude as a human. She made everything feel so safe, if even for a short while.
“I won't do it, you see.... he is not my child anymore then that man is my bond mate. It was lost so long ago. When they decided to hurt me, when I left I had nothing and I remain with nothing. So you can not use any of these demons lives to hurt me.” I stood my ground hoping that she was just threatening me, I did not want to loose my son under any curcomstances even if he was just a pawn in her silly little game.
“Silly little Ala, you do not understand. With drinking the blood from your son, you are bound to me. Not just bonded like you are with Master Hopeless over here.” She said as she gave Verne a little boot. He had now come to, and was looking rather pastey at the sight infront of him. “It will be like being stuck in that permanent circle … just ….. movable.
Surely you can take some comfort knowing that you're mine
She then took the boys arm and bit into him, inducing an aweful pain right into my skull. Soon everything went dark and I was walking all alone down a path I had never seen before. I was in some kind of hall, with many doors.
“Hello?” I called as it echoed all the way down. I assume I was in some kind of dream state, everything had morphed, my clothes, my hair and the place I was in. I padded down the hall in bare feet, I heard the soft calls of a voice but I could not place them. I come to a door after a while and I stood in front of it. It had no sign of whatever was on the door, I placed my hand on there anyway.
“May the light be with me.” I whispered.
As I opened the door my heart got caught in my throat, the scene infront of me was my baby boy as a toddler. I just stood there as Verne was playing with the young red haired boy. Both of them were so full of life, but then I looked closer and it was'nt as nice as it seemed. Maire was standing in the back ground watching with a placid look on her face. It is nice to know that Verne actually got to know our son. If this is real that is, or is it just my subconcious playing tricks on me. I had enough, I closed that door and carried on down the hall, I could still hear the faint sound of someone calling me, it was still to far away to point to its were abouts.
I opened several doors along the way, one scene was of Marie teaching my son some kind of histories that I gathered “Good boy, Seth. Now tell me the english names of the curse. Gluttony, greed, wrath, pride.......”
“Are you sure that is correct hmmm? You know what happens when you make Mother upset hmm?” Marie purred to the child.
That made me so angry I slammed that door behind me. After that I ran, trying to find the voice but it seemed so far away. I missed several doors not wishing to know what was behind them.
The next one I come across was one different, I was in some place dark and heard a slight muttering in a sob. I could not make it out so I went in, and as I got half way across the room the door slammed on me. I jumped, it seemed as if the personal sobbing could not here it, or me. As I neared the person I realised it was Verne, he looked so defeated. He was actually praying......
“Please give me back Ala so I have the streangth to save my son, so save us all. I really cannot do this alone. I am so sorry I put her throught this, but it was not my fault, I did not want it either. I can't stop it PLEASE GOD SAVE ME”
My body just wanted to take the man in my arms. Why did I not see the pain that I left him, he didn't want it after all, but I did not give him a chance.
Feeling defeated I walked back to the hall and the voice was stronger and I finally recognised it.
“Ala? Can you hear me?” Lottie called in her mystical voice. I boosted for it and finally I was at one last door. I opened it carefully not knowing if it was some trick.
When I walked through Lottie had me in her arms. “Oh my gosh, I was so hoping that this would work! I was so worried that I had no way through to you but she must have you in a protection circle right?”
I was taken back by this a little and just looked at her for a moment. “Yes” I finally answered.
“I wasn't sure I was going to get through, though this means you are passed out. The only way I can get in to help you is if you break the circle.” She explain still holding on to me.
“Well . . . . . . it seems to me your in. I also don't know how to break a circle.” I said frowning.
“You silly goose, were you not listening. Its in latin, what people of god call the 7 deadly sins. Remember when I told you them in the library???.
“Ohhhhhh.....” I said as it all come back to me, I explained to her everything that happened. “
Maybe you're strong, but you don't stand a chance
. Marie has bound me there is no way out, she is strong beyond belief.” I said, sad and broken.
“You don't know much about what I can do yet, just remember I love you no matter what happens.” She said tenderly, she leaned into me for a moment and I felt like I was floating, butterflies danced in my stomache. That moment when her soft lips touched mine, it felt like it was the only safe place in the world. Then BAM everything was black again.
Once I regain conciousness, I felt a heavy sense of magic over me. But I immediately new what I had to say.
I started to whisper fast “Luxuria, Gula, Avaritia, Acedia, Ira, Invidia, Superbia.”
Marie turned to look at me with shock in her face as the circle went down, and there was Lottie in dog form snarling at the vampries. Verne was on the ground with a passed out boy in his arms, he was lucky he got to know him, how much I yearned for that and now I had taken his life.
