"PAWN!"

"Pawn."

"Pawn."

"pawn."

 

Echoed into the distance as the stone scales fell just short of the statue at its feet. The wind blew around her again, kicking up dust and ash around her. The landscape around her seemed to be obscured by a cloud of the dust and ash that littered the land, leaving only her, the plaza, and the large monastery looming beyond the gate.

"No! NOT a pawn!" Hikaru was quick to argue with the echo, knowing full well it was just an echo but being too mad at this point to care.

With her current suspicions, Hikaru didn't know who she hated more now, Insanity or Order.. If Order was indeed behind it, then both were equally playing games and toying with her. Maybe even working together at this point... To what reason? She did not know. There were no lessons about the scrolls to be had here. Destruction maybe.. But Hikaru did not intend on using them for any ill-minded plans. The only plan had always been to save her children, and bring Koty, and possibly, her family back to life. Any plans of conquering the Dimensional Plane after would be by her power alone, and not on the reliance of a godlike item..

So then what would be the object of showing her what had become of the past? A precautionary measure for 'just in case'? Hikaru sighed. She went over and glared at the first statue as she picked up the fallen stone scales from the ground. She was going to get answers when this was all over. Even if she had to demand them by refusal to do anything else until she had them. Regardless of his petty threats! She was done being lead around to their whims...

 

The sage continued to glare at the statues as she attempted to place the stone scales in the hand it looked to go in.

When she placed the scales upon the statue of the Consul Mattheaus, a line of light shot along the ground from the base of the statue to the center plaque. A glowing came from the plaque as words appeared below the original inscription.

Within one stem. And Dreadfully Distinct

Great. More riddles. Hikaru exhaled loudly in frustration before going back over to pick up the last two items, as well as retrieve the stone sword from the ground where it had fallen before. Carefully juggling to keep holdof the items, Hikaru placed the stone book in the hand of the fourth statue, and then the sword in the hand of the second statue, and last threw the crown atop the head of the third.

With each item being placed upon the head of its respective statue, beams of light once more traced the ground from the base to the center plaque, revealing more writing under the main inscription.

And blood-black nothingness began to spin. 
A system of cells interlinked, within cells interlinked, within cells interlinked, 
Within one stem. And dreadfully distinct, 
Against the dark, a tall white fountain played.

At the Gate, a once blank slate of metal was alight with an inscription.

A Guardian once asked for a toll and a tax,
to pass through a gate, and reveal my fate.
Calm and composed, a question was posed.
"When death does near, a black circle did appear.
What was it you saw, when you entered death's claws?"

"...And just how the hell would I know?!" Hikaruu was quick to yell, her already low patience growing thinner with every second she was forced to play along with whatever mess she had found herself in. "A phoenix never dies! Now send me back already!!!"

Several moments would pass by with no answer except the sound of the wind and ash whirling across the ground.

 

"A phoenix, hm?" a voice rang out from behind her. A man stood near the middle of the plaza. He looked to be a Perfect, dress in the robes of a Consul, but half his body was consumed by an amorphous black and purple, smokey energy. From what was showing of the half of his face not obscured, he bore a striking resemblance to one of the statues... The one of the Prefect Consul, Iohn.

 

"It has been eons passed since ive been in the presence of one." he said.

At the sound of the new arrival, Hikaru immediately spun around to face the source of the voice, her expression turning from annoyance to a flick of surprise before just plain confusion when she saw that it was another Perfect. So there were more survivors? "Now just who the hell are y--- no, wait, scratch that. Obviously you are the one in the statue. I can see that. But why are you here?"

"Much like the Great Phoenix, I too have been born again from the ashes of destruction, though still here to reap the seeds of my own undoing." he replied. "I think the better question is why are you here in this desolate place? Have you too come to waste away in this place we all once called home?"

 

He took a few steps towards her, but stopped short, eyeing her. "No, this is not where you belong, young fledgling. Your feathers are still vibrant, your soul still alight with flames, and your will still intact. Though..." he looked her over once more. "I sense a fragility, much like freshly fired earth made into shape and form, you are newly recreated, not in body, but in heart."

Hikaru groaned. This one was just as bad as Insanity at giving straight answers. Was it something to do with the people of their time? Maybe they were all like this.. She sighed. Well at least this one was more open to answering something, regardless if it was cryptic or not. The other one had hardly been any help. She may may as well take advantage of it while she had the opportunity. While she greatly wanted to get back and hopefully soon out of this entire nightmare, she couldn't help but admit to herself, she had grown at least somewhat curious of it all. Especially if she could find out some sort of knowledge she could use against her predicament...

"..and just where is here? For you see, from where I hail all the Perfect are dead, sans one or two who are now Embodiments, which is still something I do not quite understand... However, if you are well and alive enough in Spirit, and so is the other one, how is that possible and why do you not just leave?"

He took a very deliberate breath in through his nose and out through his mouth and looked towards the Monastery. "A place we had long searched for, but understood very little about. A place below it all. A place of decay, timeless and dead." he answered. "Such was always destined the fate of East and we fools who sought knowledge without wisdom. Some learned harder lessons than others..." he motioned to the right half of his body that was consumed by the energy.

 

"And those who heeded the lessons of history inherited our noble mantel." he glanced back to the statues of the Guardians.

"...And why do you not just leave?" Hikaru asked, sounding somewhat irritated that she had to repeat herself. " None of this was making sense to her. The other one from before seemed as if he had some sort of power left, even if not magic, since she didn't sense any magic. They seemed living enough to be irritating, so why were they still here?

"Because this is not a place that one finds by accident. In times long past, we had sought this place and did not heed the warnings of our forebearers. I sought the power of the ones who went below, and this was my reward..." he held his left arm out and gestured to the wastes around them. "Though East's final destruction came not by my hand, but by the ones who came after me, failing to learn the lessons of old."

 

He advanced closer to her and stopped right in front of her, bending forward to come to her eye level like other before. "This is not a fate from which i can escape." he finally answered.

"Oh please," Hikaru was quick to scoff. "One can escape from anything if they have the means to. The only reason that I remain trapped in where I was previously, was for the simple fact that I do not have my magic. Had I had it, that realm would have been destroyed ages ago." She growled.

"What is more, your people had access to the scrolls which still linger, so I see no reason why you would claim such is impossible. Nothing is impossible, and anything that is, magic will eventually find a way to make it not... In any case..." She changed the subject, "What can you tell me about that one?" She pointed to the statue of Matthaeus. "Who is he?"
