April 19th

Orchid has become tired of the journey, and is anxious for dry land. This will be my last entry before we reach our destination. My mind is racing and too much it going through it to organize anymore. I fear this entry will be a complete mess.

Nareth too Beq from us, made her her own, took control. She used Beq’s emotions against us. She played with them, trying to pull her more towards her, away from us, those who would keep her from harm. Nareth found another, one I saw very little yet knew was bad. Lina I think it was. Too obedient, too much trouble. Research led to dead ends. With every solution there was an out Nareth had. Everything that countered what she was, was countered by something else she was. I began to tinker with lenses, hoping to be able to amplify light, hoping to trap her.

We went to Beq’s to check on her, she was sick, dying. We saw her break her last breath only to breathe another. Nareth told us to run, that was the only time I agreed with Nareth.

The urchins got interested, Nareth told them to stay away, they wouldn’t, they got lucky.

Rats she had feed on rats, and they were possibly infected, a plague like no other was possible.

Death, destruction of everything we knew was imminent, and when trying to find a way to stop it we were left with the frustration of, how does one fight a god.

We went to Beq’s to check on her, she was strong, and with Nareth. We were cornered, fire protecting us from Beq and Nareth. Nareth trying some dark magic, beq trying to grab Orchid already cutting her throat a bit. Another room they went, we tried to leave. Nareth stoped my path at the bottom of the stairs, Beq cornering Orchid at the top. I had hate in my heart but I had to get to Orchid, I left Nareth, she flew out the window. Beq threw me against a wall. I heard a scream, Orchid cut beq before being flung at me. Beq screamed as fire fell upon her. We ran. Hate still in my heart we went to lab, the lenses in tow. We set them up at her door, to catch her. I heard a voice, saying burn it, and chanting began. I placed the lenses in order and the building erupted in flames, exploding from what ever was left.

Beq was fine, Nareth released her, she wasn’t needed yet.

I need my rest, harsh days will come.

April 18th

As we sailed today I stared into the distance, lost in thought, nothing to distract me. Orchid slept through the day, while I stayed above, the air as my company.

There came a day when we knew Jason would strike, but we also thought we would not have our greatest defender, and our greatest enemy to aid us. We set traps for Jason. We knew what he needed and we laid plans to catch him off guard. He showed up, invisible, only footsteps could be heard, walking. We set a cage, a faraday cage, blocks electricity, flanked by fire to keep him from going around, as well as to give me strength if needed. I walked in the cage to lure him as I closed one side the other side became unable to open. I stood in the cage as Jason materialized. I hit him with a ball of fire to distract him as I ran out the other side, he now trapped by himself in the cage. He tried to escape to no avail. He then stopped and turned invisible, the gate opened, we knew he had gotten out, but no idea how. I now trapped, looked around me knowing he was near when a voice called from in the cage, then out. Nareth, she had come, she talked to Jason, he took energy, the thing we had tried to prevent him from doing, and Nareth began to lose control. People thought she had come to save us. Save us she was there for, but only to save us from Jason so that she could have a clear shot.

The events that came there after were a blur then as they are still now. The Van Creed crashed, needed help. Jason traveled by electricity to a platform that they had docked on. The Van Creed told me where they had been and I rushed over, Nareth behind. Jason stood next to the cloud angel. Nareth stood opposite of him. Jason tried things, Nareth stopped him. The cuckoo’s and their automaton showed. Jason tried to harness the cloud angel, it backfired. He was pale, and ordinary. He ran to the cuckoos in rage, falling off the edge. The cloud angel then was used to send the boys home, how I will never know. Nareth began to scream, fire sprayed everywhere, the platform began to collapse. We escaped; Nareth fell into the ocean, erupting in fire.
