Ethereal (Part 39) The Truth Revealed

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

The Haunt was still
In a stony silence
Waiting for Killain
To make his next move.

Faye waited patiently
For she knew that
This was down to Killian
And what he chose.

She had done all she could
It was now down
To the wielder of the sword
That was pointed at her chest.

Killian was ready
To prove his loyalty
To the Holy Guide
But to look upon Faye
For one last time
Brought back many memories.

First he remembered
The time he had
Offered her shelter
From the pouring rain.
Was he about to go back
On the kindness he
Had shown her in the past
To simply prove his loyalty?

He remembered how hard
Faye had worked in the past
How she had toiled
For her father and mother
How she had looked after
The house she was raised in.

Killian remembered
Faye's placid and gentile nature
The way she had always been nice
Even to those who
Did not return her kindness.

He had been like that once.
What had happened to him?

Lowering his sword
Killian could not bring
Himself to kill her
For he saw her goodness.
She did not follow the Holy Guide
But she was still nice and kind.

Had Trixie not been
Put into a horrible depression
By the very Holy Guide
Who had said it would help
To get rid of the suffering
That Killian had seen
In his vision.

Had Faye not freed her
And brought back
The strong willed Trixie
Who made everyone laugh?

Killian was no doubt
Terribly confused by
The way things were.
Which was the right path?

The Holy Guide
Then ripped through his head.
"Fool! She has bewitched you
With her foul charms."

The Holy Guide however
Could not finish
For Killian felt a hard blow
That came from none other
Than a furious Will.

"How could you?" He screamed.
"How could you come and
Kill the innocent.
Those so called servants
Have gone and murdered Grissie
Whom you know I was to marry."

"I rushed to her house
To see if she was alright
And I find the servants
Of the Holy Guide
Around her body.
They had killed her
In the name of your
Oh so precious Holy Guide."

Will could hardly
Keep hold of his anger
For although he and Grissie
Had fought and argued
He had loved her
With all his heart.
Now those brutes
Had taken Grissie away.
Yet he was not done,
It was time ro really
Let Killian have it.

"You are such an idiot.
If you see yourself as saviour.
If you knew half
Of what I know
Then you would drop
You faith in the Holy Guide
Like a stone."

"The Holy Guide had Faye
And many others arrested.
It had them put in a horrid town
Jared Hallows where
We were fed but scraps
To keep breath in our bodies
And worked ragged,
Only being allowed to sleep
When we could no longer
Keep ourselves awake.
We were brutally treated
The same way in which
You are treating the people
Who you have known
All of your life."

"Do you truly think
That you are being righteous.
If so you have truly lost your mind
And have become a puppet
Like all of the servants
Who gave us our treatment."

Killian blinked
Not having a clue
What Will was talking about
But one thing he did know,
The servants of the Holy Guide
Had made a terrible mistake.

"But Grissie was not on
The list of the doomed."
He said aloud.
The Holy Guide replied
"What does that matter?
It is simply one less person's faith
To worry about."

Now Killian was shocked
By the callous tone
And felt a deep crunch in his heart.
He dropped the sword,
Finally realising
His Guide was anything
But a Holy being.

He felt so stupid and angry
Mostly with himself
For he had allowed
Such a thing to happen.

"She has taken me away
From your very soul."
The Holy Guide cried out.
"But she has done it far too late."

With that Killian felt
His body become light
As he lost it to the Holy Guide.
