Ethereal (Part 38) Kathy's Final Visit

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

Kathy headed towards
Lord Karmia's mansion.
She was going to see him
One last time
Before he died.

Her heart was heavy
And she was holding back tears.
She hurried inside
Noting the old lord's servants
Watching her rush in.

Lord Karmia was
Where she expected
Him to be sat,
By the fireplace
In his drawing room.

His eyes looked tired
But were still full
Of happiness on seeing
Kathy come and visit him.

Kathy went up and
Sat by him
Feeling sorrow rise
Through her like
A stormy sea.

His condition had worsened
And he looked ready to go.
Never in her life
Had Kathy felt
Such anguish in her heart.

He took her hand and smiled
But his smile had a tinge
Of great sadness to it.

"Kathy my dear." He said.
"I am glad that you
Have decided to pay me
One last visit."

Kathy nodded
Too upset to speak.

"I have heard that
They were coming
And that I am going to die."

Kathy took a deep breath
Trying to avoid crying.
But it was no use
The tears coursed down her cheeks.

Lord Karmia gently
Put his arms around her.
"Kathy I am sorry
That I must leave you
But we both know
That my time in this world
Is rapidly growing short."

Kathy had to agree
For the servants of the Holy Guide
Would soon come
To kill Lord Karmia.

"Kathy you have brought me
Much solace in my old age.
I remember the first time
You and I crossed paths.
I had fallen and you helped me up.
I could only repay you
With my own hospitality.
From then on you came
To keep a lonely old man
Company in his last years
And I cannot thank you enough for it.
You have brought much laughter
To my life Kathy."

Kathy took a shaky breath.
"And you brought it as well.
You always were witty."

Lord Karmia smiled and shrugged.
"Not much good is wit
When there is no one
To share it with
Or to appreciate it."

Kathy agreed
She was crying now
Knowing that there
Was not much time.

"An old man like me
Can not get very far.
If I were to try and escape
Even with your help
I would not get very far.
My old frame holds me back."
Lord Karmia then shook his head.
"If you were to try and help
Then they would kill you too."

Kathy nodded
Knowing that
He wanted her to leave.
She gave him her last kiss,
For she could hear
Approaching now
The servants of the Holy Guide.

They were shouting jeers
At the old lord
And praises of the Holy Guide.
Lord Karmia heard them too.

"Kathy do these last
Favours for me.
I want you to get my servants out
Take them to the back door
For they are sure to come
Through the front.
I also want you to go
And do not grieve
For too much or too long
For you have a long life
Waiting for you to embrace it.
I would not want fun loving Kathy
To remain sorrowful forever.
You shall soon find love gain
For your flirting
Shall know no bounds."

He smiled at her.

Kathy rushed through the house
Telling the servants
Lord Karmia's wishes.
Out of respect for
The kind old Lord Karmia
They obeyed and rushed out
The back door.

Kathy looked back as
Lord Karmia's servants
Rushed away.

Was all she said.

A servant rushed back
And pulled her away.

The servants of
The Holy Guide
Burst through the front door
Crashing through
The grand house
Breaking all they could.
Fabrics were set alight
And they ransacked,
They trashed,
They destroyed.

Lord Karmia
Dabbing his eyes
With a handkerchief
Over seeing Kathy
And all his servants go
Waited for them to arrive.
They broke down the door
And saw him there.
At that point he simply
Held his breath
And waited for it.

Author's Notes: The hardest part was making sure the two set of servants were not mixed up. Anway I hope you enjoy this part and don't think of me as evil for holding back Faye's fate from Part 37, you'll get more tomorrow.
