Peeping Toms“We… really shouldn’t be doing this, guys,” he murmurs.Peeping Toms by StealingBabiesBRB
“No. We really shouldn’t,” another agrees.
“But… but… look at them!” the third breaths, barely containing his excitement.
“I know,” the second is awestruck.
Reiskilon and his friends stand in one of the newly formed forests on this newly formed world called Sanctuary. In front of them, is a lake filled with water pouring down from cliffs that reach up into the sky. But it’s not the pure blue waters or the enchanting scenery around them that has them so intrigued.
It’s several angel-maidens gathered in the water.
The trio of demons don’t move from their convenient hiding place, covered by the thick branches and shadows of the wood. Although there is a wary peace between the angels and demons, the two really haven’t mingled, save for Inarius and Lilith, whom had settled down somewhere west of here. Normally the sight of the h
Suspicions“So how is our little Reaper friend?” Mercy asks over drinks in the groups’ campsite. She says it softly enough that the words couldn’t be carried away by the way.Suspicions by StealingBabiesBRB
Kaiya wraps her cloak around her more tightly. Its greyness is turned charcoal coloured in the fire’s light. Her breath still fogs the air. “He would be doing better if I didn’t have to keep him hidden away. He’s not some disgusting abomination. He shouldn’t have to stay in that hut.”
The fire crackles, throwing sparks in the air. They sparkle then return home.
“At least you are closer to him than in the Enclave,” Mercy points out.
“True,” Kaiya shivers, clutching her travel cup. “But still… it’s not right.”
Mercy tries to think of something to cheer her up. Being a Demon Hunter and all, it doesn’t work. She just nods slowly; before she can say anything else, the sound of approaching footsteps causes the two wome
WonderWhen the Wizard is certain he’s no worse for wear, she takes her leave. He doesn’t stop her but the air does seem to get more prison-like. He understands that he needs to stay hidden for his own safety but it is still less than pleasing. He is more heart sick than ever.Wonder by StealingBabiesBRB
‘I’ll be your friend,’ she had said.
Is he so lonely and alienated that he would accept such an offer? He shivers. She had left her blue cloak despite his accusations. However, it’s too short for him. If he pulls it up, his boots poke out. He’s left it where it is but his arms are cold. She must really not want to hurt him. Back in Heaven, he had been fairly decent at reading others but he is no Empath. Not even the Sages could read others as an Empath. Still… her movements had been sincere, if awkward.
“Heaven help me,” he whispers. “Give me peace of mind.”
He doesn’t expect it anytime soon.
A knock comes at the door just then. He look
Past Future Presence 03The next time Lorath is with Tyrael instead of running errands all over the place, the former angel is busy compiling notes on the strange statue Lorath had mentioned and the cruel slaughter of the group of bandits. The young Horadrim is curious about many things but he doesn’t ask. It’s not the right time. Instead, he sets a plate of food by the angel’s arm and takes a sit across the table to start in on his own meal.Past Future Presence 03 by StealingBabiesBRB
Although no sign has been picked up since, everyone is still wary. Rumours swirl about whatever killed those bandits and it Lorath gets slightly sick to his stomach anytime he thinks about them.
Sadly, in all this heavy silence, thinking about them is all he can do.
So he attempts to take his mind away from them and strike up a conversation with Tyrael. To his chagrin, the first thing that comes to mind is something Tyrael said a few days ago.
“Who is it you wish you had been closer to?” he asks.
Tyrael looks up blankly.
“A few days ag
I'm not saying the Monk is the bad guy. Gerasim isn't a bad guy. What he is, is someone who is set in his ways. The Monk, going through the game, mentions nothing about redemption and from what I read in Darkness Falls, Heroes Rise, redemption isn't something they believe can be done.
Also, I don't think the wild, rebellious Wizard would be someone a Monk could like, considering how different their worlds are and their stances on things.
While he's not evil, Gerasim won't be much of a hero.
This little series I'm doing can end one of two ways. Do you want the good ending or the sad ending? Should the Wisdom Angel/Reaper make it or not?
