LOWW-15Chapter 15:Good Lord
As Akaila, Marcus, and the others were coming over the peak of Lupis Mountain, Sarah was limping her skyhawk back to Icewall. The crystal drive was failing and she barely maneuvered over the landing pad when it died, sending a shower of sparks from the damaged wing and a billowing cloud of blue dust out of the intakes and exhaust as the hollow shell of the crystal inside shattered, the sky hawk landing hard on the concrete below.
As Sarah opened the canopy and was stepping out of the skyhawk, she heard a grunt come from behind her seat, she tipped it forward to reveal Jake the fox. "Benr, sebu! Where did you learn to fly?" he spouted as he tumbled out of the small cargo compartment that he was hiding in.
Sarah picked him up by the scruff of the neck as the emergency responders ran up to the skyhawk, asking him in the kindest voice she could find at the moment (which wasn't that kind) "Who are you and how did you get in here? I ne

Battle Of The Puppeteers
I dared to gaze out from behind the corpses, and saw Okoban Standing before the bronze titan, unmoving. It growled loudly before speaking in a voice like ear piercing machinery combined with wrenching metal "Do you honestly think you can escape, blackened one?"
Okoban smirked, then replied calmly "No. I don't plan on escaping."
"Then what is it that's driven you? Why do you choose now to attack? If not for escape, then what?"
He held up a single claw, and replied "One thing."
"To deliver you to your master. Be it in one piece or many."
With that, he lunged at the bear, holding one of his claws back, seeming to fill with lightning, dark in color, unnatural. Only a foot or so away, he brought his claw forward, and drove it into the bear's muzzle, sending it sliding back, sparks showering the room, setting fire to the tattered remains of drapes and tapestries.
The bear regained it's footing quickly, opening it's m

The two of us ran as fast as our legs would carry us. I eventually started getting winded, and slipped into a side room to breathe. I slumped down into a chair, and Heather leaned against the wall, both of us panting like hounds fresh from a hunt.
She looked down at one of her tentacles, causing it to twitch slightly, then another, that one twitching. "What are you doing?" I inquired, and she replied "Since that demon was ripped out of me, I've noticed I can move these snake things a little, maybe with practice we could use them to defend ourselves."
"That's comparable to learning to walk in a matter of minutes."
"Then get to crawling, there's no way we're getting out of here without that trail, we both know it, this place is a labyrinth."
I held one of the limp limbs in my hand, holding it before me, the mouth of it half open, limp...drooling even. I concentrated on it, focusing on the sensations I could feel, imagi

Follow The Bloody Brick Road
Just as I thought I was going to die, my soul sucked into the pits, I saw a bright, crisp light. I suddenly felt sensations again, and stood up. I no longer felt the tentacles or a tail, and my feet felt short again. I looked down, at my body, and for a moment, I was full of glee. I was male again, and moreover, I was back to being human.
I looked back to the light, and heard a choir singing, and felt soft, balmy warmth...it was heaven...it had to be. I started walking to it, then jogging, then running, then sprinting. I was running as fast as I could, tears streaming from my eyes, trying to get to heaven before my opening closed, but a hand suddenly grabbed my ankle, sending me to the ground.
I hit the surface hard, but felt no pain, I simply bounced as if dreaming. I looked at the hand, and it was black, scaled, reptilian and charred. Okoban emerged, but not in his half human state, not in his host. I was seeing what m

The feeling of warmth on my head in that cold dark place was a welcome relief. I closed my eyes and moved my head slightly closer as he continued to scratch my ear. I couldn't help but enjoy it. After a moment, he stopped, and snapped his fingers, a blue flame forming around his finger.
He lowered his hand to the shackles on my ankles, and the blue flame turned bright white "Cover your eyes, lest you want to go blind." I did as I was told, and I heard the buzz and crackle of molten metal, and the familiar smell of iron filled the air.
Chains clanked and rattled, and the light faded. I uncovered my eyes and saw my chains cut away. I rubbed my chaffed ankles, and kicked the chains away, some of the metal still glowing red. I looked up in disbelief at him "But, you're a demon, are you not?"
"All demons were once something else, some of us have come to understand we deserved our punishment, and through that, don't commit worse offenses."

I woke up in a darkened room. I tried to take a deep breath, but gagged on the cold, stale air. I quickly looked around and my ears perked up at a jingling noise. I quickly looked at the source to find shackles on my ankles. I tugged at them as a test only to find them, as I expected, secured firmly and unmovable.
I sat in the cold dark chamber for several minutes before I heard talking nearby. One of the voices was unmistakably that of the butler, but the other was unfamiliar. I crawled nearer the door and tried to listen. The second voice sounded very distraught, but I couldn't make out what they were saying.
A couple moments later, the door of the cell opened and I had to squint as the light of a lantern flooded in. I'm not sure why, but for a single moment, my mind had incredible clarity, and I registered that the reason an ordinary lantern looked so bright, was because my eyes were attuned to the dark more-so than normal.
