Ralia heaved now as she began to think less of what had happened. Only then did she open her eyes to the face that was staring intently into her, almost as if the owner of the face wanted to peer directly into her soul.
She had been a Bulkari slave in her past life and so, she was used to being sized up like this. After all, the type of dressing that they were mandated to wear was something that covered very little of their nakedness, much to the sensual desires of their lustful captives. However, seeing the face of this person looking at her like this gave her goosebumps.
She felt like he was visually raping her and as a result, she was starled. Immediately, she tried to jerk away, all in a bid to avoid the direct gaze. But just as she tried to do that, a depressing force slammed into her.
“Aha! Our little bird wants to escape. Preposterous!” The hoarse voice sounded again with a booming laughter accompanying.Ralia gritted her teeth as she heard the heavy steps of the one who was the master ricochet off the ground. The boots he had on must have been really heavy to create such effect because with each step that he took, it felt as if a thousand sledge hammers had been slammed into her temples, all without mercy.She felt cringey, feeling all sorts of pressure piercing into her, almost as if the pressure points want to drill through her body. And on top of that, the depressing force that she felt at her back now doubled in intensity, till her face was literally shoved into the earth, forcing her to eat raw earth.She wanted to spit out but she could only afford to simply
Avan looked at the rag in his hands, numerous thoughts running through his mind. He knew he should not be doing this, heck, he knew what this Ascender was all about. Armed with this knowledge, he knew he should not have to entertain the words that she was saying to him. But then again, he knew that the words she spoke had deep resonance in him.The Irunmole Council, for as much as they seemed like the pretty much good guys and angels and all of that, it was not all so like that.It was not like the bed of roses others must have thought of. The ideal form of Heaven where everyone who walked about had all righteous thoughts in their heads because, why not, they were the direct representatives of the will of the Orisha, the Guardians of the Aspectual Laws.That was the general idea. So, people were naturall
The memory was sharp and hurting in Ralia/s subconscious. It had to be. It was the memory of the one person that had chosen to take her side, only for the disastrous end that came upon him. And to think that she had not been strong enough.To think that an Ascender like her would have to face issues as little as that.When Liria had first identified and illustrated all that was about her, Ralia had the notion that she was just about to become the most powerful of all beings.Maybe not as powerful as that but at least, being that she was an Ascender, she had thought she would be untouchable. Unhindered. Invincible,.Just like Trixius the Great had been then. She had thought that the fact that she had a soul remnant of him would mean that she had discovered a g
The air in the tunnel was heating up to unbearable limits. However, for the ones who used the law of death, their bodies were somehow exempted from feeling that much heat that the presence of Ralia the 13th Ascender was generating.The bodies of their fallen comrades lay before them even as they rushed into the scene. They had gotten the briefing that something was going down in the tunnels where they kept the creatures in which were used for the soul beast fighting contest.They had known of the breach and although they were the more of the elite trained force, they had decided to prioritise the tunnels where the creatures were over the happenings in the stage.After all, this was what the ebastkins would be after in the real sense of it. They had definitely come down here because someone must hav

But Shin was ready. Several balls of disappearing light popped up into the air, each one teleporting them from one point to another, leaving the guards dumbfounded only for them to scream as they made contact with the golden yellow lights, their ends being ultimately death. Death at the hands of the Ascender of Rebellion, Ralia. The teleporting began to take its toll on Shin. He heaved now as they appeared here and then vanished again as the balls of light replaced them. It was one thing to port himself. It was another to port not only himself but three people along with him. The strain was breaking him and he felt like he was going to get a fried brain anytime soon. Still, he endured, pushing on as much as he could. He was the only one who was keeping th
Bayo stiffened just then as a thousand voices cried out all the same time, almost deafening his ears. The wind pushed against his clothes, swaying his gown left and right even as a swirling vortex appeared, sucking out the winds into the direction of Bayo. And in the next second, Shin and Hana gasped for breath as dryness rocked their core. The wreath of dark airs that engulfed everywhere suddenly vanished, leaving behind a sensation of emptiness in its place. Whatever Bayo pulled through was indeed strong, Hana and Bayo mused, struggling to get a hold of themselves and get rid of the sudden nauseousness that was climbing up their throats. They knew better, that for any move to make the effort to cut through the darkness. The very darkness that was blanketing the entire landscape of Laprisha in a circular style, almost as if a spiral ring had seared thr
The darkened air wafted across the short, miniature skin hairs of Bayo as he stood, meditating on what Shin had said to him. He swallowed, feeling his throat patched and dry even as he stood still. The ground, soft and desert like did not help to alleviate that dryness he was experiencing. He frowned, and then, his eyes popped wide as he came to realization of himself. "Shin…" He called out, bending to his side, the right of him where Shin was. The Ascender Hadjan knelt down, his lips smeared by life essence that he had barfed up, a reaction to the overexhaustion he was facing. His white hoodie and trousers had seen much better days, with the stains and dust plastered all about it. He knew just well enough that he had been pushing himself hard but he was not one to complain. Just like the First Born, he had a purpose he was here to serve. "Eh…" He groaned and fell to his fours, shaking his head as he tried to stabilize himself.
