Ethereal (Part 15) Dream Pollution

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

Killian settled down to sleep
The same night he had yelled at Kathy.
And when he slept
He dreamed again of the Ho, ly Guide.

Before him was a valley
All green and gold
Shining in sunlight.
Flowers covered every field
Hills shone out
All bright as emerald.

The sky was a beautiful blue
And so excellently clear.
In the air was
An intoxicating scent
Which filled Killian
With a feeling of peace.

"Oh Killian
My trusted messenger
You have done well
To warn Kathy to control
All her passion and flirtiness."

Killian thanked
The Holy Guide.

"You have done well
In taking with you
Many followers
And for increasing
The number of pilgrims
That follow you to
Their own salvation."

Killian thanked
The Holy Guide.

"And you have done well
In keeping your faith to me
The many times that
You have been challenged.
This is what I thank you
Most of all for
As you shall be challenged
Many more times
In the future.

Killian looked up
To the sky above
And asked.

"Who will challenge me?"

"I can not say right now
But I will say
How your faith
Has put forth mine
As someone has
Trespassed into sacred grounds."

Killian blinked in confusion.

Then he saw before him
Will with an aura of darkness
Around his own figure
Sending out a stream of
The utmost pollution
To this beautiful valley.

The flowers died
They withered away
The hills went
From emerald green
To dusty brown.
The sky above went
From a sparkling blue
To a deep dark colour
And became dotted
With the heaviest stormclouds
That Killian would ever hope to see.

Killian felt his anger rise
How dare Will
Whom he'd called friend
Trespass and destroy
Something so holy and sacred,
Something so beautiful and peaceful.

"Will, you are foul
For taking away this beauty."

Will just turned
And smiled rather snidely
Saying in a taunting voice.

"There was no beauty here
It was all in your head you idiot."

Killian balled his hands to fists
And felt his anger rise up.
The indignation of how
Will could defame such a place
Was beyond his own belief.

Then for a moment
He controlled himself.
Could he actually expect
Anything other of Will?

Will was a cynic
And a hard nosed skeptic,
He would never accept
Anything as holy.
All Killian had to do
Was ask him to leave
(Ever so politely)
And that would be that.

However it seemed
That the Holy Guide
Had other ideas.

"Did Will not laugh at you
And not at Faye?
Do you remember how
He asked Faye about her beliefs
Even though they contradict
What I want for humanity?"

"He never asked you
Of your beliefs
And laughed in your face
Every time."

"Yet to Faye, he was nothing
But polite and courteous.
I do think from this
That he, like Faye
Has turned his face
From mine and chosen
To label himself
As one of my sworn enemies."

Killian felt his breath become short
Yes Will had been nicer to Faye
Than he had ever been
To him or the Holy Guide.
All he had got was scorn and mockery.

By this logic that had been shown
By the Holy Guide
Killian concluded that Will
Was no longer fit
To be thought of as his friend
And severed ties, in his mind
With Will the cynic.

He woke up
Feeling like a hard man
With a mission to complete
That had been set for him
By the Holy Guide.
