Chapter 13

 

Lauren

 

Twice now, Lauren had let her appetite get the better of her. For the second time, she found herself damp. She attempted to ignore the warning signs blaring in every corner of her mind, especially the part she used to connect with the animal inside her. Truth was, she felt guilty for refusing Tera the affection she knew the Sun Goddess craved. The responsibilities she was sworn by were too pressing, though.

 

Allowing the group to get separated was her fault, after all. Secrets, unfortunately, had a way of coming back to bite a girl in the ass. If only she could have been sure where the former Council Acolytes’ loyalties laid.

 

Sure, Gina had been abducted by the Council as a child and Haven was technically being blackmailed to be their personal assassin. Lauren knew they both had their circumstances, but that didn’t change the facts. Gina had headed the Council’s MBA division in Brazil, albeit in exchange for the freedom to run her own orphanage. And Haven… Lauren always shuddered when thinking about the thousands of humans that lost their lives to Haven’s blood magic.

 

I should have stayed in bed this morning. Then again, she had woken up without Tera next to her. The guilt ate away at her all morning, until the perplexing battle between Ryoko and her Goddess. She wished Twelf had told her more of what was to come after recruiting the human. Their Realm God was far from omniscient, though, so it was possible he had no idea what would transpire.

 

A sharp pain in her forearm brought her out of her daze.

 

“I said, how MUCH do you love me?”

 

Harsh wind whipped through her hair as she clung to Tera’s hand. Stay or run? She knew it was a foolish thought, but her instincts had kicked into overdrive. She had already decided on the path she had to take. Why did things have to keep getting more complicated?

 

Lauren was thankful for Tera’s question. It dragged her back to reality, but she almost didn’t answer. The wall of dimensional magic hurtling toward them had already disintegrated the shadowy monoliths centered in the field of roses. She watched as one by one, the fleeing wolf-like creatures met the same fate. Lauren found their raw power beautiful and terrifying.

 

“How much?” Lauren said, repeating the question. Was there really time to answer a question like that? Tera had to know how awkward questions like that made her feel.

 

“I didn’t stutter, sweetheart.” Tera stepped in front of her, forcing Lauren’s attention to shift. Lauren always thought Tera looked more like a cat than a fox, at least until any of her nine tails came out to play.

 

“I don’t know… a lot?”

 

“It better be more than a lot. You’re mine. In this life and all the lives to come,” Tera said. Her smile was mischievous and breathtaking.

 

Lauren rolled her eyes. They’d had many arguments over the merits of reincarnation, which usually ended in someone getting spanked. It was an absurd concept – not just to Lauren, but all the witches. Life was shared by all; it was not singular, as Tera believed.

 

“Okay, so I’m yours. What does that—”

 

“I’m so very glad you agree. I’m going to save you now, darling, so I can have you later?”

 

Lauren glanced over Tera’s shoulder to the tsunami of dimensional magic and then back into Tera’s eyes. “Can’t we just, I don’t know, jump over it?”

 

“Divine magic is divine magic. I have a spell for protection against such things, but even I have my limitations.”

 

Tera had a penchant for dramatics, but this was different. The look in her eyes held a sadness that ripped through Lauren’s defenses and left her bare. The Fox Goddess’ arms wrapped around her and a soothing warmth spread throughout Lauren’s body, but the act left her empty. What the hell was this about?

 

“Don’t be sad, okay?” Tera said as she nuzzled her fox ears against the nape of Lauren’s neck.

 

Lauren couldn't help but embrace her lover despite the confusion bubbling inside of her. She wanted to enjoy the warmth in her heart, but every time she tried, her eyes drifted back to the wall of ‘divine magic’ that was bound to envelop them any second.

 

“Babe, what are you planning?”

 

Tera’s moment of silence dragged on into what seemed like eternity before she said, “Just hold me.”

 

Lauren did, as tight as she could, and as the tidal wave of energy spread over them, she felt the soothing warmth expand from her body. The world was sheathed in a fiery torrent, but only hers. Beyond the bright glow of fire encasing her, she saw the magic pass overhead like a thousand stars at once, and then it was gone.

 

She pulled away from Tera, her arms still wrapped around her Goddess’ waist. Something was wrong. The divine essence that shrouded Tera’s body was gone, like every ounce had been sucked from her body.

 

“I’ll find…”

 

Lauren waited, but the end of the sentence never came. The wind blew again. Lauren tried to pretend she didn’t see what her eyes knew to be true. Like ash through her fingers, it all began to slip away. The colorful kimono, the delicate fox hair, and the optimistic smile frozen in time.

 

Lauren barely noticed the hair piece Tera always wore thud to the sandy floor. She was moving before she realized it, her vision filled with an endless haze. If Tera was gone, then whoever or whatever had taken her would pay.

Karma

 

The ruby shield Gina created barely withstood the massive wave of energy enveloping us. For a moment, it looked like we were lost in a sea of the universe. Stars and galaxies, all fluorescent and beautiful.

 

Unfortunately for the witches, there was no time to enjoy the spectacle. Thin cracks in the exterior began to appear one by one like a windshield pelted with hail. Haven was ready, though, and each time the fractures spiderwebbed she sealed them with a pulsing wave of crimson energy.

 

Their calm demeanors reminded me just how over my head I was. Sure, I had managed to create a shield of my own in the hotel. If Ehma hadn’t been there to lend me her strength, though… Despite the overwhelming helplessness I felt then, this immense wave of energy made Tera’s orb of sunfire look like childsplay. I had to wonder how everything that was so pretty in this dimension could be so deadly.

 

I suddenly felt very grateful given the context of the situation. Here I was in another dimension with a group of badass women who were willing to put up with a scrub ass human. Not only were they willing to keep me alive, it didn’t even seem like they intended to make me leave. I couldn’t help but study the indicators hovering over the girls’ heads again in admiration.

 

Gina, 29. Haven, 33. Both blue meters that hung under their green health bars were depleted. No surprises there. I glanced at my own level in the top left of the Interface and was baffled to find I had somehow crept up to level 13. Someone really needs to explain this shit to me.

 

A monstrous howl broke me from my temporary daze moments after the wave of energy passed us. The shadowy giants descending on the field of roses across the river had been decimated and only a cloud of dust seemed to be left. If that was so, then what had made that terrible sound?

 

Gina and Haven looked like they could barely walk, but at the creature’s howl they began to sprint. I found the sight frustrating.  Level 13 or not, it was really starting to bug me that I hadn’t been able to contribute anything yet. Next time I’d be more useful.

 

“What the fuck is going on?” I asked between breaths once I had caught up.

 

Haven ignored my question. Gina, however, seemed less winded. “Bad. Very bad.”

 

Hey… Do you know what’s going on? The silence that followed gnawed at me. I couldn't decide what was stranger, the fact I found the lack of response irritating or the fact I had grown accustomed to another person’s voice inside of my head. For awhile it had felt like too much noise. Now, the isolated silence left me feeling desperate.

 

I realized things weren’t going to get any better as we raced across wooden bridge connecting our half of the island to the field of roses ahead. While the first army of shadowy monoliths had been wiped away, more were clawing their way out of the distorted portals littering the sky. There smaller creatures as well, packs of them like wolves.

 

From what I could tell, the shadowy creatures were silent. So, what had filled the solitude with that blood curdling howl? It seemed Gina and Haven had recognized its meaning, but there was no time to talk.

 

One of the giants to our distant left toppled to the ground, cleaved in two. Gina and Haven’s full sprint stopped dead and I braced myself for impact. I came dangerously close to running them over, but the witches were oblivious. Instead, their attention was glued to the monstrous figure shredding through the battlefield.

 

You’ve gotta be joking. A werewolf? I guess that was feasible. Witches and angels and all the rest. Why not? I decided for the umpteenth time to stop trying to apply logic to the situation. It just wasn’t getting me very far. Instead, I turned my focus to the indicator hovering above the menacing wolf’s head. Lauren, 42.

 

“Wait… What?” This time my question was rhetorical and it didn’t bother me when Haven and Gina ignored me.

 

Haven and Gina exchanged worried looks. They were just as in the dark as I was when it came to what was going on. Though, I doubted they were surprised by the fact the leader of the hotel had transformed into such an intimidating creature. All teeth and claws and muscles and fur, she towered above the lesser beasts. This was the same woman?

 

I could see she was wearing the same outfit she had been when Ryoko and I crash-landed into the tent earlier. I selected the information icon next to her name again. Shifter. As in shapeshifter?

 

Arcing crescents of energy cut through the monoliths one by one as Lauren headed to the center of the field. Lauren had distracted me from taking a closer look at our enemies as she culled through several waves of the shadowy giants and beasts alike. Now I saw each of the shadowy enemies had indicators as well.

 

The lesser creatures held the title of Void Beasts, 24. The shadowy giants were likewise titled Void Sentinels, 39. I felt like this was useful information, but something was bugging me. Where had I heard that referenced before?

 

Ehma had said ‘sometimes the void stares back’, but only now did I make the obvious connection. Her mysterious disappearance, these void creatures, and the shadow with eyes were too similar to discredit. Had Ehma known?

 

“What do you think it is, Gina?” Haven asked, directing our focus to the center of field. Amidst the dust and hazy forms of the Void sat a small purple shield.

 

“I don’t know… I can’t get a read on it. Lauren looks pissed, though. I haven’t seen her like this since you and her—”

 

“Don’t remind me,” Haven said while tucking strands of loose hair behind her ear.

 

“Should we really allow the shifter to destroy the girl inside the shell?”

 

The sudden voice from behind me drew the attention of Haven and Gina. The lack of fear in their eyes put me at ease. Even so, I raised my arms to protect my head and neck.

 

“Oh, hey babe. What do you mean, the girl?” Gina was the first to respond to Valeri’s question, although her eyes did dart over my protective stance with a glint of humor.

 

“A damsel I’ve never seen warned me of the impending dimensional influx of celestial energy.”

 

I lowered my guard as I listened to the gibberish. My eyes traveled back to the transformed Lauren and the purple shield. A damsel she had never seen? There was only one ‘damsel’ on the island I was sure no one had seen.

 

“If our fearless leader wants to take on the entire horde by herself and destroy whatever or whoever is inside of that shield, I have no qualms.”

 

“Are you sure that isn’t just because of what happened last time, Haven?” Gina seemed to derive pleasure from bringing up the battle between Lauren and Haven, but the blood witch merely danced around the subject.

 

“Who knows, maybe whoever’s inside is what’s causing all of these freakish giants to show up?”

 

“Hmmm. Hey human, wasn’t that the same kind of barrier you made in the hotel?”

 

It took me a moment to realize the group’s attention had turned toward me. “I think so, but…”

 

My focus kept drifting back to the purple shield that Lauren had nearly fought her way toward. She had been injured at some point and a slick sheen of blood trailed down one of her arms. What am I supposed to do?

 

Twelf had promised me a way home if I made it this far, but the clues ended there. That wasn’t how it was supposed to be. There was supposed to be a clear-cut goal but if there was, I couldn’t see it.

 

The sound of shattering glass filled the air. Shards of the barrier cascaded to the ground at Lauren’s powerful attack, revealing the woman inside and it was as if time stood still for a moment. It was her.

 

But why was Lauren attacking Ehma? They were friends, weren’t they? Something wasn’t adding up.

 

Isn’t she pretty?

 

The voice in my mind wasn’t Emha’s. By the time I registered that the woman’s words weren’t my imagination, I also realized time hadn’t just appeared to stand still. It had.

 

She’s beautiful. I couldn’t take my eyes off of Ehma. The name that hung above her head was the same, but it was like the two versions of her I had seen had been smashed together. If she was okay, though, why hadn’t she answered my messages?

 

Good answer. Would you like my help, by any chance?

 

Uh, maybe? I guess it depends on what the catch is. I felt like I was being taken out of the frying pan and thrown into the fire. All the same, the frozen scene about to play out wasn’t right.

 

Be warned, I’ve never played fair with anyone. If you want my help, we do this my way and by my rules.

 

Who are you?

 

I’m just a hard working girl, trapped in a genie’s lamp. The woman’s voice paused as if to give me time to mull it over in my head. So what’s it gonna be?

 

Okay, what’s it gonna cost me though? My soul or something?

 

Your soul? What would I even do with it? If you must give up something so miniscule, why not give it to her? I’m sure she could find a use for it.

 

What was that supposed to mean? I had my suspicions about who the current voice in my head belonged to, but I had more or less given up trying to understand what was going on. If she was willing to help then who was I to turn her offer down. No one else even knew what Ehma looked like and there wasn’t any time to explain.

 

Are you ready or not? I’m getting bored again.

 

What’s the plan, lady?

 

Hm, we’ll have to work on your etiquette at a later juncture. For now, though… I’m going to rewind things a little and create a diversion.

 

I was finding it hard to breathe. Hard to focus. And what am I supposed to do?

 

Oh my god, get it together! Are you a man or what? Just do what you always do, something dumb and heroic.

 

But-

 

No buts. Now remember, the secret to magic is in its intent. Make sense?

 

No.

 

Good. Have fun.

 

I felt myself slip back a step, like I had been forcefully pulled out of the moment. As the ripple effect ended, time itself resumed. Lauren was, again, approaching the shield. The woman’s intent to ‘rewind things a little’ definitely wasn’t an understatement.

 

“Should we really allow the shifter to destroy the girl inside the shell?”

 

I didn’t need to look back to know who was speaking. As the last syllable rolled off the War Angel’s tongue harsh lightning streaked across the sky. One, two, three and then all at once forked energy pierced the Void Sentinels and Beasts throughout the field. My distraction.

 

I broke away from the group of women, my feet hammering toward the mass of shadowy creatures surrounding Lauren and Ehma. There was so much I didn’t know. Just let this not be a stupid fucking mistake. If this is the risk I’m supposed to take, please just let me do it without fucking it up.

 

“Hey, where’re you going?” Gina shouted as I darted toward Ehma.

 

There wasn’t any time to explain. I felt solid links circle my chest, slowing my momentum. It was too late, though. I initiated ‘Dragon’s Fury’ even before I had started running and the chain’s ivory links snapped as the wings lifted me into the air. As Lauren’s attacked shattered the shield for a second time all I could see was Ehma. The woman’s voice echoed in my mind like an aftershock. Isn’t she pretty?
