Ethereal (Part 34) Death Day

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

Before them all
Karmia stood just
As they remembered it.

Nothing had changed
So it seemed to
Killian, Kathy, Tricie and Seamus.

The houses were
Exactly the same
As was the pub
And Lord Karmia's manor.

Killian prepared to enter
When the servants
Of the Holy Guide
Arrived in their
Brown and gold robes.

Killian looked at them
In a state of confusion.

"Who are these people
Who wear these robes
And arrive as we
Are about to do
The Holy Guide's work.
Why are they here?"

The Holy Guide spoke out.
"Do not fear them
They are my servants,
The most faithful and loyal.
They are your allies
In dealing with Karmia's evil."

Killian blinked
And saw their weapons,
He knew that
Death day was about to begin.

"How I wish there was
Some other way
That involved no violence."
Was what he said.

"Must it go this way?"

The Holy Guide simply said.
"There is no other way.
The people of Karmia
Are too far away in
Their hearts and mind."

"The only way to be saved
Is absolute obedience
To me and my servants.
Come now,
Death day must begin."

And so Killian picked a sword
And charged in
Followed by the servants
And the many followers
He had brought with him.

Trixie rushed off
To find the people of Karmia
To try and stop
The violence and madness.

Kathy ran off
To reach Lord Karmia
Before the mob did.

Seamus fled away
And went to hide
Not willing to fight
For he could not fight at all.

He did not know what to do
For everything seemed to
Have stopped making sense.
How was he
Supposed to destroy
All that he had known.

Seamus was used to logic
And analysed every detail
But this was beyond logic
And no analysis could bring him
Any solution to the problem.

Then he heard
The Holy Guide.
It was in his head,
Telling him to kill
All those who refused
To obey its will.

However Seamus knew
How to tell right from wrong
He did not need any spirit
To tell him that at all.

"I will not kill
For these people I know
And these people
Are my neighbours,
They are friends and
I cannot possibly harm them."

The Holy Guide was angry
No doubt about that
It declared that
Seamus must die
For his defiance.

Again Seamus was indecisive
He did not know what to do.
He thought of Will
And then thought of Faye.

Although the Holy Guide
Had forbidden him
From going to the Power Haunt
He was bound to die anyway
So that is where
He decided to go.

Author's Notes: Hope you enjoyed part 34. Things are definately getting more hectic and will continue to do so. Here's another bit on Seamus
