She began to issue her super healing powers on Roque, Kureejii, and finally herself. When they were all well, her staff dissappeared. "So they have returned... this is not the end. I bid you goodnight... and when this continues, we shall protect each other..."

Nibin nodded solemnly and gated out.

She saw Nekoko. Everything went still. Ophelia looked... happy.

The power exploded in a howling wave, washing over the field and everything in it but their two figures, ripping at the very fabric of The World. Lady Kesshou was gone, but she'd given Ophelia enough power to... one last time...

"Ophelia..." she hissed slightly, briefly, just before a spiral of blood shot up around the girl in black... It splashed back to the earth, and standing there was a hopeless looking little wretch of a thing, a small catgirl, was that what she was? With one arm hanging down lower than the other and tattered clothes covering her small form, she was quite a sight to see...

In the same instant, she gasped and went limp as Roque's attack went through her. Ophelia fell, no voice to whisper a healing spell, collapsing on the ground like a cast-off doll.

She mouthed the Chat's name.

It would have to be enough.

<He plants Lucido blade-first into the ground, kneels before it, and folds his hands together once more>

I say words not of resentment for Ophelia, but words of kindness. I will fight the evil that has claimed her, so long as my blood flows. I will free her, now and forever. I say this not as a prayer, but as a decision. That I may guide myself in truth, that I may not fall prey to evil. That I may help The World. That I may help its people. So it shall be done.

A low, slithering sound emanated from the ground. The chilly water of the field condensed, formed something heavier. The mists moved in, swirling around like veils or animals hidden in shadows.

There was something there, a form in the haze. It lay laxly, one arm drifting in the ankle-high water, its head turned to the side.

<Turns and smiles at Kureejii> I have been fortunate to help my friends. It is all that I can ever really do. If I am to die by trying to help a friend, then I shall die... but as I've said repeatedly, I will never fall so easily... I shall not stand to die, but stand to defend... to help...

<Looks over his shoulder at the mists>

And rest assured, I may be weakened, but you are reforming from death... unless you reform to the old Ophelia, I will stand against you once more.

Re: Putrid Hopeless Spiral
Post by Ophelia on Today at 20:27:14

A quiet, low moan drifted out along the cold breeze. The form shifted and rose once more, echoing its previous transformation.

Ophelia blinked. "Aurelai..." her words were slurred, a now-familiar growl. Her still-silver eyes focussed on the girl.

Ophelia's ears perked up. She turned to face the other two, tail tucked low in apprehension. "You... leave her... alone. L-leave her alone now."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Re: Putrid Hopeless Spiral
Post by Espiritus on Today at 20:27:30

<Turns back to Aurelai>

Would you not kill those who would kill your friends? As you prepare to kill me for doing so, do you not fight for your friends as well? Wouldn't you fight for your friends as they were... before they would so easily kill you and everyone else on the field- your friends included? Would you help your TRUE friends, or simply the false friends that the evil surrounding you have generated?

Attack me if you must... or join me, and I will protect you. The choice, once again, is yours.

If you have a quarrel, let it be with me, both of you... and I still await your decisions. Will you not remember joy, friendship, and truth? Will you not refuse the enslavement of darkness?

No, Psy, she has not made her decision. A decision has been made against her will, against her desire. Neither of these two woke up the other day and decided that they would commit their lives to killing and destruction... they still have that which helped them live their lives of peace and happiness, of freedom. Nekoko, you argue that what you feel now is not enslavement? I see it otherwise. For you are Nekoko, a player of The World, not a virus-infected data bug. You are human. You desire peace, desire truth... you desire to be happy, but you are in the chains of darkness. You are lashed to an evil beyond any one of us... it will take ALL of us to prevail and live together in peace, away from all this hellish fighting, all this blood. Death, change... these are best left to nature, not to an overlord like Kesshou.

We must stay together, all three of us, we must... be loyal to one another!" She shook her head violently. "I do not care about pain.

The struggle of the light within her against the darkness that surrounds her casts her weight down. Hear her words! See her body! LOOK and see how she struggles! WATCH and see what happens to her! She struggles... she hurts... no, Nekoko, you do not hurt her... but the evil that pains you both hurts her. So long as you promulgate the demon, the demon will strike at you both...

Ophelia... there may be a joy of power within you, but it lies within every single one of us... we all suffer against it. It is the curse of freedom. Freedom is choice... but truth is not inherent within evil.

<Roque's voice echoes through the light, bolstered by Kuria and fueled with Kureejii's healing hopes; Ophelia and Aurelia are barraged by the deep chant, growing ever louder to only their ears, reflecting in their minds, growing into their every thought...>

Aurelai screamed at the pain, the light in her body, paining her, tearing her apart...

She cried out and reached out to Aurelai. They were killing her.... They were killing them. Ophelia's mouth shaped pleading, begging for something, anything.

"Together they can't hurt us. They can't hurt us... They can't... They can't... They..."

<His voice rattles the field like a small California town earlier today, rolling an imperceptible wave of force... healing, bringing back to life that which has been torn away before its time...>

The little girl reached out, finding Ophelia's hand and grasping it.

"O...pheli...a..."

Gates Back In To Stay.
"Okay...Umm Roque.. KuReeJii...Kuria. I KnowYou Guys are trying TO Help Them..."
Taps Her Foot A Bit.
" But Maybe Its Better FOr Them To Stay The Way That They Are... Aren't You Ashamed? They Picked... Your The Ones Who are trying to make them choose against Their Will! They Went Willingly To Kesshou, Now Let It Be! Please Let It BE!"

Sighs Out Of Frustration Thinking That THey Would Just Ignore Her.
" Ashamed..."

She wrapped her arms around Aurelai, tears of pain soaking into her fur, wishing... wishing... It wasn't supposed to end this way, with pain, with pain and searing light. They were three, they were supposed to stand together.

"We're together... Don't tear us apart... Don't tear me apart..."

"No eyes... no ears... no nose... no mouth... no skin... no pain... no death... no eyes... no ears... no nose..." <The chant echoes, still growing in power, as Kuria too begins to levitate... her body remains intact, the winds and light grow stronger...>

"You must not give in... Ophelia... Nekoko... return unto those who care about you!" <they hear one last time as the chant grows louder still to them...>

<The light suddenly fades, the winds die down, and Kuria returns to the ground. Roque is nowhere to be seen>

"So you choose... so I must respect..." <a whisper floats on the wind>

"Ophelia, Ophelia, Ophelia..." she says over and over again, drowning out the chant that was destroying them....

((Aaaaand that was just a bit late XD ))

"You don't understand! This is what we are! This is how we are! You were killing us!" Her muscles spasmed with the afterimages of agony. She breathed slowly, painfully, silently.

She stayed there sobbing and holding her Ophelia close to herself.

<The wind blows again, and Roque's yellow headband floats onto Kuria's shoulder>

"I aimed to hurt no one... and I have indeed wronged those who I hoped only to right... so as it is, I shall not return to this place, to these fields... never shall I walk among them until those who have been forced into darkness return to the light... feel no more pain... feel no more hatred and anger..."

<The wind stops. Nothing more is said. Ophelia and Aurelai no longer hurt>

Kuria falls to her knees when she returns to the ground and looks down, her hair covering her eyes. "It is the choice...but...but it hurts...to see them suffer..."

"Thats How they Want To Be Roque. Stop Trying To Force Them. Let Them Be Happy."
Sighs And Watches The Two
" Your Trying To Help..But...It Hurts Them...Don't YOu See? Do You Feel Like Your Helping watching Them Suffer?!"

Post by Ophelia on Today at 20:56:57

She bowed her head in the quiet, just breathing, remembering what it was like to have space in your head for something other than pain. Her expression was calm, almost sad, transcendent. "I thought I'd lost you," she half-laughed, and said nothing more.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Re: Putrid Hopeless Spiral

"Ophelia, Ophelia..." she sobbed. "I was so afraid I'd hear that chant forever and ever and never hear your voice again..."

Re: Putrid Hopeless Spiral

She smiled, the expression seeming more like a grimace with the new distortions of muscle and bone. Ophelia said nothing, but tightened her grip minutely, her chaotic hair hiding her face.

Post by Ophelia on Today at 21:01:34

She seemed as if she was going to say something, but halted. Ophelia lifted her face. The sun wasn't shining; it never did in this place. But somehow the soft light suited her.

"Shall... we go... Au-chan? Yes... Let's leave this place... Let's go somewhere else... far from here... together."

The cool, healing light filtered dully through the mist like powder, falling on Ophelia's face like angels' dust.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Re: Putrid Hopeless Spiral
Post by Aurelai on Today at 21:02:34

"Okay," she said quietly, smiling up at her Ophelia, fading away like dust in the wind, glitter in the breeze...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Re: Putrid Hopeless Spiral
Post by Ophelia on Today at 21:03:06

She smiled and let go, the mist rushing in to the space where her body had been. Ophelia disappeared.

She smiled at a good job well done when the two left.
