Ethereal (Part 30) Revolution

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

Death Day had arrived
In Jared Hallows.

The servants arose
With one thing on their minds
Today they would see
All the inmates die
And they would be free
To reach the outside world
And do the work
Of the Holy Guide.

The inmates however
Were all hidden
Waiting for the servants
To pass by
To reach the lake
Where a gibbet would be built
To hang each inmate
And a fire would be started
To burn each body
So there would be no overload.

Will was with the first group
Ready to attack the servants
To distract them long enough
For Faye's group to take the
Shackles and the chains
Intended for them
And then use them
To keep the servants bound.

The servants arose
And gathered their equipment
To deal with those
Whom they saw as nothing
But vermin and scum
That had rejected the Holy Guide.

The inmates were in position
Ready to complete
What was to be their liberation.

The servants arrived at the lake
But before they could
Go and search for anyone to hang
Will's group sprang
From some rocks
And beat them down
Using sticks, rocks
Anything that could
Be used as a weapon.

The servants were distracted
And terribly outnumbered.
They had no chance against
Will who had tactically planned it all.

As they were lost
In a flurry of confused fighting
Faye's group sprang out.
They gathered up shackles
They gathered up chains
Some of which had been dropped
Some were snatched from hands.

Soon Faye and her group had shackled
All of the servants who moaned
And threatened them
With the wrath of the Holy Guide.

"The Holy Guide
Has commanded us all
To kill every last one of you.
We shall give his every wish
In full glee in the knowledge
That all those who reject
The word of the Holy Guide
Will perish."

Will simply laughed at them
"Try doing that shackled
And while we are free.
You could not possibly kill us."

Then there were whisperings
Some into Will's ear.

"Good suggestion." He called out.
"Let's do to them
As they would have done to us.
Let's kill them all."

However one voice spoke out
This was none other than Faye
Who would have been forst in line
Had there not been a revolution.

"We should not do it
For that is how the Holy Guide works."
She said.

Many nodded at this
And decided to change their minds.

"The Holy Guide cares
For us, its servants."
The servants cried.

"Not really." Said Will.
"For it did not protect you
From its enemies.
It is either not omniscient
Or it does not care for you at all."

Then he paced up and down.
"Although I would love
To see you all suffer.
Faye is my friend
And I respect her voice.
It is true that the Holy Guide demands blood
So what difference does it make
If I demand it also?
I certainly don't want to
Be that miserable spirit."

All the liberated nodded
And gathered food for the servants
They left them there
Imprisoned, not dead
And wondering why
This turn of events came about.

The now liberated people
Of Jared Hallows
Headed for the gates
Following Will
Who knew the way out.

They cheered
They danced
In a merry parade to freedom

Yet Will and Faye
Were not merry
For they knew only
Half of the problem was solved.

They still had the matter of Killian
And his obsession
With the Holy Guide.
They had to think
Of what to do next
And help their friends.

Author's Notes: Will the bloodthirsty. Well I hope this revolution wasn't too anticlimatic. The real stuff however is getting close. Keep reading.
