Ethereal (Part 10) Seamus's Perspective

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

There was a knock
Upon Seamus's door.
When Seamus answered
There Killian stood.

He looked to be
Full of cheer
But Seamus had a feeling
That it wouldn't be
A joke he would share.

"The Holy Guide
Spoke to me again."
Killian said.
"It told me to go
On a pilgrimage
To purify myself
And to send out
The Holy Guide's message
In order to prevent
The violence and suffering
That is to come."

Now had Seamus been Will,
He would have made
Some scathing and cynical
Remark about illusionary dreams
But Seamus was
More polite than that.

"Did you dream this last night?"
He asked, staying calm
And rather skeptical.

"No, it was yesterday
In the woods.
I left the Haunt and
The Holy Guide spoke
Right there as I was leaving.

"It said that the voice
Was a deceitful spirit
And led people to
Suffer in their own worlds."

"It said Faye had
Forsaken the path that
It had shown her
To be lost in a world
Of illusion."

Seamus looked at
His friend, whom he'd
Known a long time.
He wondered how
It had come to this.

"Do you say that
Faye is gullible?
Do you say that
She has not thought?"
He asked.

"Yes." Killian replied.
"That spirit in the woods
Is nothing but evil.
The Holy Guide told me so."

"Faye draws her strength
From an evil place
So in turn she will
Become evil."

Seamus stopped
Killian right there
"What has all of this got to do with me?"

Killian looked at him
Feeling slightly flushed.

"I am sorry for rambling.
Please Seamus,
Will you join me on my pilgrimage?"

Seamus stood up
And looked Killian in the eyes.

"What visions has this
Holy Guide given you,
Apart from the one in the pub?"

Killian then went on to describe
The fact he had seen Karmia on fire
With a silouetted figure
Against the blaze.
He had seen fights
In the gaps between the houses
He had seen death on every corner.
To describe the vision was
To see it once more
In his mind.

Seamus listened intently
And Killian described it so well
That Seamus could see it
In his mind.

Then Seamus really did see it.

He caught his breath
And calmed himself.

"You see." Killian said.
"That is what will happen
If we do not take this pilgrimage."

Now Seamus did not deny
That there was some truth
In the vision.
Yet he was not willing to believe
That following the Holy Guide
Would prevent it.
He was to keep an open mind
Of how to prevent the violence
He had seen.

This did not pass his lips.
For he knew by the look
In Killian's eyes told him
That so say this
Would waste his breath.

Seamus did not want
The violence to come to pass
Any more than Killian did.
He also knew that Killian
Would not leave until
A yes was heard.
As the two were friends
He agreed to go on the journey.

Killian thanked him
And gave him a great hug.

"You will not regret this."
Were Killian's words
Before he left and headed
Towards Kathy's house
To try and get her to come.

However Seamus simply
Sighed and whispered
"In the years to come
I will look back on this day
And say to myself
'Had I but known...'"

And so he sat down
To ponder what
Gate he had opened
By agreeing to Killian's journey.

Author's Notes: Told you they would come in at a more frequent pace. Part 10, hope this part isn't too much of a bore for you. I wanted to give you a bit on insight into Seamus's character considering he hasn't really been much of a stand out.
