"The crystals took us into Voltin's mind." Zuma whispered, "I think they wanted us to put it back together."
"How is that possible?" Germany asked, looking at her.
She scratched her head, "I had to take a lot of her power to do it .."
"Why did you take her power?"
"I needed to put all of the pieces back together. It was a broken world .." Zuma whispered, glancing back at Voltin, who was on the ground now. She was bent forward, her hand across her forehead, as if trying to sooth a bad headache. As soon as she said those words, she began to laugh. Though, it came out as more as an amused wheeze than anything else.
"Will you never learn?" Voltin asked, not even looking up. She picked up a rock that was lying on the ground beside her, and threw it at the mirrors, hitting her own, and leaving long deep cracks in it. "You may have managed to fix my mind, but will that really change anything? My heart is still broken shattered i
The Walk of Utter ShameThe Walk of Utter Shame:The Walk of Utter Shame by WordOfChen
My face is hidden by a blackened mask,
As I am taken to stand before the crowd.
Ripped from my face and cast aside,
My features burn in the glaring sun...
"Who amongst you will defend this man?"
I hear a soldier call.
"None of us sir!" The crowd shrieks back,
As to my knees I fall.
"Shame him!" The soldier cries,
As they begin to pelt me with rotten fruits,
"Maim him!" the people scream,
As they kick at me with mailed boots...
I shudder and writhe beneath the torture,
Too pained to even scream in fear.
For this is the punishment that I deserve,
For shaming the honour that I hold dear.
In anger, in rage, in emotions so dark,
I've carelessly denounced the work of my siblings...
Now I lie, in battered penance,
For only pain can ease the shameful sting...
Never did I think that I would fall,
But pride is arrogant dissonance.
Through penitent pain and suffering,
I have learned the value of reticence.
"Allow me to accept my shame and offer my apologies..."
My Eternal CurseMy Eternal Curse:My Eternal Curse by WordOfChen
Since the time I was awakened,
From the dawn I lived and breathed.
I have always walked alone,
For I carry a dark disease.
No matter where I go,
No matter where I'm born.
Always it will reveal itself,
Always I am torn.
The moon will shine from cloudless heavens,
And soon the change will take it's place.
My fangs will grow and fur will sprout,
It is my deep and dark disgrace...
Silverback, they called me,
Bane of men and beast alike.
Knights and templar, each and all,
Sought to have me on a pike.
I've killed so many countless men,
They are faceless in my waking dreams.
Bones shall litter the depths of my lair,
As I wash the blood away in streams.
I seek not an end to my torment and pain,
But leave me now in peace to die.
Or come into the den of evil,
And your head will be the first to fly.
