Art of Agony...

Art of Agony...

Jax lay on his back, peacefully juggling three balls between one hand and his two feet as he loudly ate an apple using his remaining hand. His sharp monkey teeth worked lazily at peeling the skin from the fruit as he continued to juggle without thought. Princess Aelaria Dan'ia al Peryss'a sat quietly on a stool in front of the large mirror as her chambermaid brushed her long, luxurious brown hair. The slim, dark and highly attractive princess, known to her friends as Aelia, waited patiently as the older woman finished her nightly ritual of brushing Aelia’s hair before bed.

Aelia had an apple in her hands as well, but sat with it resting in her lap. She would occasionally turn it over as she fidgeted on the stool, restless, angry and bored, awaiting this nightly rituals conclusion. Normally the mundane routine relaxed her, but not tonight. Tonight she was anxious, terrified and frustrated. Something was happening all around her and she wasn’t allowed to know what it was. Strange occurrences throughout the land, unknown dark riders at all hours of the night and she was told nothing. However, why should she be told anything of importance when all she was allowed to be was a puppet, a precious token, something to be traded for power, nothing more and nothing less? Here she was, a Princess in the mightiest kingdom known to man and beast, and she was a puppet, only a prize to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Her thoughts turned even darker. Tomorrow was the Day of Refreshing the day the One Source turned itself over to bring the dregs of sin up from its depths. It was the long celebrated day that the supposed holy lake would cleanse itself by releasing to the surface the sacrifice of sins from the last year. The rot and decay would then cascade over the Norther Chasm and flow throughout the land to be washed out to sea. The Day of Refreshing was set aside as a day of reflection of the last year. Throughout written lore it was considered the Holiest of Holy days, and was observed as a promise of remembrance and thanksgiving. The following day, the Day of Hope, was set aside for celebrating redemption and newness throughout the land. Tomorrow, on the Day of Refreshing, Lorliss Lake would smell of death and decay as the detritus would rise from the nether and wash over the lip of the Norther Chasm where it would quickly be carried downstream, crossing the entire land by way of the Three Rivers. The stench of the waters would remind all that came near the Three Rivers, both man and beast, that it was a new year. Hells, it only served to remind Aelia that her own life, was over as far as she was concerned.

Tomorrow, at the Day of Refreshing celebration feast, her father, King Beldrav Dan'ia al Peryss'a, Blessed King of Caldeheim and Overseer of the Three Rivers, would reveal to the world that she would be betrothed to some wretch of a rich, self important man. Aelia sighed deeply and dropped her head, causing her chambermaid to tug her hair too hard, which was immediately followed by a murmured and unapologetic, “I’m sorry.” Aelia let it go without saying a word and allowed her mind to return to its musing.

Such a short betrothal it would be. She would be swept away from the podium immediately after her father announced her fate of marriage trust to the Priests and Priestess of the One Source and those gathered self-important, oxen assed dignitaries that would be in attendance at the celebration feast. She would then be surrounded on the dais, as if she was in sudden and mortal danger from some unseen enemy, by tattooed faced lunatics of the One Source. The Priests and Priestesses, giddy with their power and self assured knowledge of all things religious would form a protective, dancing shield of human flesh. Of course, protocol dictated she would follow them meekly when they rushed her away into ritualistic hiding where she would be kept until her wedding in three days. She would be whisked away from everyone she knew and loved so the First Man and First Woman of the One Source Priesthood could do their dance around her while she was forced to pretend prayer and supplication. Naked, she would prostrate herself and be absolved of all her sins before the waters of the One Source. As the two righteous loons danced around her to the playing of lute and banging of drums, the rest of the mighty pretenders would chant their archaic songs as their young and mindless protégées would chant and sway in time to a rhythm known only to idiots while pretending they weren’t looking at her nakedness.

All of this pomp and ox dung to get her ready to marry some boar of a man she didn’t know and didn’t want to know, whose breath probably smelled of garlic or bad wine and who may or may not have all of his teeth. She was sure, without doubt, that his drunken ego would blind whoever would be chosen to how grotesque he was and she shuddered as she imagined old, gnarled hands groping at her skirts. Aelia pounded the apple down into her lap. Hells, she thought! For all I know he’s old enough to be my grandfather. Her gaze wandered over to Jax, sitting comfortably on his bed and eating his apple while still juggling balls without a care in the world. Not for the first time, she wished she could live the life of her pet and friend. After tomorrow, she wouldn’t be able to keep him. Jax had been with her ever since she was a little girl and that parting was difficult in her heart, made more so because Jax had no clue that tonight would be their last night together.

There was a sudden change in the air, a quickening of time and space and it took her a second to truly understand what was happening. Her thoughts were simultaneously flooded with an image of Jax in explosive movement, shrieking and running at great speed towards something behind her and then a quick, loud sigh from the chambermaid. The next thing Aelia knew, a heavy weight had been dropped upon her shoulders and then quickly slid off. Looking quickly to her right, she saw the face of her chambermaid, gazing at nothing and everything as she slid the rest of the way to the floor. Jax’s shrieks of anger filled the room and the sounds of struggle crashed upon her ears for the first time. Spinning to look behind her as she hastened to stand, she immediately understood what was taking place.

“Blood of a bitch,” fell from her lips without thought as she took in the scene behind her.

Jax was upon the Blackcrawler, arms wrapped fiercely around the vile creature’s neck in a macabre struggle, bared and sharp teeth biting deeply into lurid, mutated flesh. The Blackcrawler, clothed only in shadow and blackness, was more void than true reality; an image of an image of death walking. Its movement stoic and determined, it reached behind its veiled head with ease and grabbed Jax by the fur. Without effort and with one powerful motion, it flung Jax across the room. Jax slammed into the wall, fell quickly and was deposited in a broken heap in the floor. Loose limbed and unmoving, she watched for what seemed like forever as Jax lay motionless and shattered. Hot tears of anger flooded her vision and despair washed over her soul. Blackcrawlers know their victims and they know them well. This was to be expected and was their sole purpose. They were ominous, shadow born mutant creatures of the Red Waters that were directed and sent out with one singular purpose- agonizing death. Blackcrawlers wasted no motions, knew no bounds and relished the art of killing almost as much as man’s Jh'taraith Assassins.

Aelia’s gaze moved from Jax to certain, torturous death. The Blackcrawler stood motionless and defiantly, knowing she could not outrun his purpose and patiently awaited her next move.

The game, the Art of Agony, had begun.
