He looked to her, his eyes red from tears. She was too good for him. Even now she knows what will happen and still wants to help him, and offer her forgiveness, but how could he even be worthy of such a gesture?

 

"Unfortunately, I know how this all ends..." he said. "I refuse to kill Juris, and he will get free, one way or another. Such is the curse of infinity. He and Asura will see to it that I hang for this. For you. " he admitted. The others on the Grand Tribunal perhaps would care less, or be more merciful, but Time and Order were so close and affected by what had happened, he knew there was no way to avoid an execution.

 

"But...." he said. "If i can undo the unlocking of the scrolls, I may very well be able to save existence from itself. The Ancient One, the one locked in Southlake. He told me the words to unlock the scrolls, knowing it could not be undone. But if i were to take them before, perhaps i could bring them to the present, in its locked form, and prevent another cataclysm." he explained.

 

"Is that possible?" he asked, desperately wanting to do something to make up for what he had done. "I know i cannot change the past, but I can change the future."

"The longer that you keep him imprisoned and in the dark, the more likely it is that what you fear will come to pass..." Crea responded. "They may be more understanding if you just go to them yourself and explain. Tell them before they have to find out on their own, and they may be more likely to forgive." She paused, then smiled mysteriously as she added more cryptically. "There is one other who also may help your case. When you return to your time, seek out the Embodiment of Love."

In response to the question of the scrolls, Crea only shook her head. "I am sorry.. I know naught. The scrolls were unknown even to us. They were from before the time of the Perfect, and their origins, or how, and why they even worked the way that they did were a mystery. The only knowledge we had, was that they could not be destroyed by any means, and that what was written upon them would come to pass. Even the most impossible of things."

"I believe the time to come clean has past, dear mother...." he said as his shoulders sunk. "Justitia knows something. Even if its just a hunch, she will follow it until its conclusion. There are so many ways she is like you, but..." he looked away

 

"So many more she is like him." he paused. She had mentioned Love. That embodiment sounded familiar, but it had been so long since he had met them.. him? no.... her. Lierra, that was her name.

 

"What does Love have to do with this?" he asked.

"You must still try! I am sure they can be convinced to see reason. Especially since Juris knows--" Crea immediately caught herself and paused, stopping mid-sentence before sighing and shaking her head. Her voice low. "..Am I so good.. that you should lose your life for taking mine?" Her eyes scanned the floor in a downward gaze as she chose her words more carefully this time. Putting more thought into each and every one. "From the beginning I assisted in lying to you, and helped the other Perfect to manipulate you...  Although I did this with the intention to help, and to save you from further suffering.. It changes nothing. I still share my part of the blame and even now...I dare not say the full extent, for fear of where it may lead..."

She looked back up. "You should already know, that despite being called Perfect, we were far from it and were subject to making all the same mistakes as you, some of us, even more so... an-and my point is. If you should lose your life for taking mine, then I deserved to have mine taken in the first place, for being a part of what caused you to do so... Leirra, the Embodiment of Love as you know her now, can tell you more... ash she is my sister."

Something felt wrong... He sensed something. Love. She wasn't there though, but why could he sense her?

 

"Mother I...." he paused. "I sense her now. Like she is near, but I know this is impossible." he looked down to the floor trying to make sense of why he could feel the force of Love. Though only for a fleeting moment then he thought. Order. He could sense Order too. He could always sense Order and had never paid ti much mind, but why could he sense him? Juris was inside ND, which meant....

 

"I fear Lady Love has come seeking answers on her own. My reckoning is soon, i fear." he said and looked back to her. There was no panic in his eyes, only that of sorrow. Like a condemned man walking to the gallows. "May existence have mercy on both Embodiment and Perfect for what we have done, and what we will do. Please forgive me." he pleaded.

"Please do not worry, as you have nothing to fear..." Crea had immediately stood up as she tried to reassure him. "Leirra is the reason you are here. The other person that I had mentioned that knew of this, is Leirra. She assisted in the events to lead you here, as she, like I, wish to help you." She looked him in the eyes. "...and if possible, save the both of you.."

He sighed and let his head lower again. "I am past saving.... " he said. "Regardless of what is done in the name of atonement, no matter the penance I could pay, no matter the people i've tried to save, it all pales in comparison to what i've done."

Crea bit her lip as she stood silent. It seemed that no matter what she said, it would not change the mind of one who was so deep in the pit of regret as he was. Yet, there had to be something that she could do. It was clear to her that he was suffering, and her heart to ached in the desire to take that pain away. As it did when she saw any of the Embodiments suffer. They may not have been her actual children, but in guiding and nurturing them, she had come to love them as if they were and only wanted what was best for them.

Including the one before her. She did not seem him as a god, as Leirra had told her the people of the future did, nor a monster as he clearly saw himself; but as one of her children needing to told that everything's okay.

"Insana.. I did not try to stop you from obtaining the scrolls in order to save my people. I did it to try to stop you from becoming like this... " As she faced him she laid a hand on his shoulder. "You continue to ask for my forgiveness, despite the fact that I have already given it. I do not blame you.. I never have. Yet you will never see or accept this until you can learn to forgive yourself."

She used her hand on his shoulder to pull him close to her, and wrapped her arms around him in a motherly embrace. "You deserve life, and there are many who desire you to live. Please see this."
