Ethereal (Part 28) A Shining Example

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

All was quiet
After Killian had proven
The existance of the Holy Guide.
Even Trixie was quiet,
Needing time to reflect
On what to do.

The followers were shaken
In what they had seen
But their faith was as strong
As it had ever been.

Kathy felt nervous
But she knew now
That the Holy Guide
Did exist.
It was not a fable.

Seamus of course was
Deeply affected.
He knew that what
Killian had said was true
But he did not know
What to do about it.

The Holy Guide existed
And it had a lot of power
But yet it still had caused
Suffering to Trixie
And did not seem like a
Benevolent being.

Seamus spent time away
From everyone else
To allow his mind to clear.

Suddenly in his mind
He heard it.

"Coward." The Holy Guide mocked.
"You refused to defend
What my messenger was saying
You failed to open your mouth
And allowed him to be mocked
By Trixie and Kathy.
You were not strong enough
To speak out against them
To say that the mockery was wrong.
You have been a failure
But there is still a chance for you."

Seamus jumped up
In absolute shock
And rushed over
To see what Killain made of this.

"Killian." Seamus cried
"I heard it,
The Holy Guide was in my head."

Killian sprang up
His face plastered with joy
And he rushed up to Seamus
And gave him a bear hug.

"Seamus you give me hope
For the Holy Guide has honoured
You with its very presence
In you mind
And because it has done so
You must be marked as
One of the faithful and good.
I knew I could rely on you."

Seamus did not feel pleased
He felt embarassed
And wished he'd just kept
His mouth shut about it.

More followers praised him
And said how holy he was.
Seamus felt the whole thing
Turn into a circus.

"Here people." Killian cried
"An example to you all
A shining example
To show that you can still
Gain the blessing of the Holy Guide.
Seamus old friend
You have done me proud."

Seamus wished that
Killian would simply shut up.
(I imagine Trixie
Would have wished it too
But for different reasons.)

Killian continued to praise
Seamus as righteous and holy.
In Seamus's eyes
The Holy Guide had clearly
Not told him what had been said.

Kathy and Trixie
Looked at Seamus in shock
And also in pity.
They knew how he hated
Being the centre of attention.

Seamus asked Killian
To put away the praises
And simply focus on
The last leg of the journey
But Killian simply praised
His modesty to the extreme.

Deep down Seamus
Felt a terrible feeling
Within his gut
And he wanted to leave
So he could clear his head.

Later he went over
To see Trixie
Knowing she would understand.

Trixie looked at him
With a bit of mistrust
But allowed him to talk.

"You know how Killian
Says I am a shining example."
Seamus whispered.
"I am not and never can be.
I do not submit
I think too much about it."
He was saying.

"At least you still
Have a brain in your head."
Trixie returned.
"Killian seems to have let his
Turn into nothing but mush
By listening to the Holy Guide."

The two talked a while
About what had happened
On their journey.
They knew Kathy was hurting
Being told Lord Karmia would die.
They knew Will and Faye
Were probably in danger
Of the Holy Guide
For it seemed to dislike them.
What were they to do?

Seamus went to bed
With a great and heavy heart
Wishing that in the beginning
Before the journey had started
He had refused to come
And had stood up to Killian
So he would not have to
Watch this train of events unfold.

However then in his head.
"You could not have refused.
For you heard my call
And you saw the vision
I summoned you.
Even if you had I would have
Named you dead
Like Lord Karmia, Will and Faye.
You are such a coward
But you are worth the trouble.
A mind as bright as yours
Is worth looking at."

From that Seamus knew
The only reason the Holy Guide
Was in his head
Was to mock him
And nothing more.
