Scroll Doubts And Decisions - Carmelya And Diana [Kakita]

Early Summer, Era XX



The Church Of Carmelya was burned. Oh, poor Priestess! They run afraid of whatever could come after them! The church stood there, alone, in ashes and with pieces of walls still standing, so brave walls!

No life ran in the ashes, the hope is gone, the life will never reach that place again! Oh, this cruel world, why? Why the Goddess must suffer the sins of the human souls? Not just human, of course... Why the Goddess must suffer the sins of the two legs souls? It's better now, thank you very much.

The brightening was cold, the whole city was still covered with snow, white snow if you don't know the color of the snow. Sometimes, snow can be red, if you remember about drop your own blood into the snow! Some shy clouds began to cover the sky again. Maybe a storm was coming, maybe the clouds were just traveling to another place of the Empire. Who knows? The time was in the beginning of the Summer. The place was the city of Dragons, Demios.

Kakita needed to began his demand for a Championship in this city. Visiting a burned church of her new Goddess and leave some retribution for the rebuilt, would certainly please the Goddess.

Despite of that, Demios has very special places, and eventually Kakita would reach that places... But let's start with the beginning: Kakita's arrival to Demios. Or Kakita's arrival to the Church!

Demios was hardly alien to her. The first time she went to Demios, it was on Church duty, to try to resolve the storm crisis there. The second time was to pursue the escaped Champion of Ainlar and his accomplices.

Miyuki was planning to seek out the dragons, in order to seek their guidance, so that she could craft her own soulblade with the very best arcana and materials she could muster, but she decided to drop by at Demios and have a good tour of the city. In the past, her missions had a certain sense of urgency.

After asking for directions to the Church of Carmelya, she made her way there, not realising what was in store for her. Shocked to see it in ruins, she ran towards the burnt temple, and started looking around, horrified that a divine sanctuary of her Holy Mother was burnt to the ground.

As the shock and horror wore off, she began to calm herself. Think, she mentally told herself. "What can I do?"

After a while, she decided that among the things she needed to do were to investigate the cause of this destruction, in mundane, divine, and supernatural ways, clean up the place and search for precious relics and artifacts, call for aid, and restore the Church.

But first, a prayer to her Holy Mother. "Holy Mother, I am sorry to find that your holy place has been desecrated and destroyed. I promise that I will get to the bottom of this, bring this place back, and restore this place to your glory. Please guide me," she prayed, visualising her feet turning into roots that are connecting to the earth, and then forming a vision of her Holy Mother as she prayed to her.

Yes. Of course. Search for artifacts and relics. No luck, perhaps. The strange symbol on the wall, the wing with a claw inside. Or something like that. Fanatics, maybe. Rebuilt the church? Was not her priority. Was it? Maybe. A priestess of Carmelya was in charge of that part, already. Maybe Kakita's work was find who did that? Find the last Priestess of the Church? Maybe he or she was hidden somewhere in the island?

People was passing near the church, hearing her pray. Some of them ignored her, another ones said things like "Don't loose your time", or "That isn't worth of it!". Well, they were not women and men from the church, indeed. There was nothing more to do in that place. Maybe travel a bit more around the Island, or just Demios itself. The mountains and forest could hide secrets, too. Who knows what was there, what wasn't. But well, at least she was not in danger of dying... Yet. So random matters or choices or whatever. Why not pick one? Maybe the Aedile's office was the next stage. Donate donations to help whoever was rebuilding the church could be the beginning, no? Or perhaps just ignore the aedile and keep searching for something randomness around the city...? Hmmm...

The strange symbol of the wing with a claw was the first thing she noted. While she didn't recognise it, she noted it down with her memory. It was a lead at the least.

In the mundane world, it appeared that she had done all she could, but she was also an adjurator, albeit more on the Aetherian side. Opening up her unseen third eye, she started to look into the spirit world at the ruined church. She was searching for something, someone, who can give her additional leads. Perhaps the divine guardian spirit of the Church of Carmelya? Or perhaps holy spirits or deceased saints might be able to provide her guidance on what had occurred?

Seeking the holy spirit of the Church of Carmelya, Miyuki prayed quietly, "In the name of my heavenly father Ioannes, and my holy mother Camelya, I wish to make a pact with you, great holy spirit, and ask for your aid, by appearing before me only, and sharing with me what had cause the destruction of my holy mother Carmelya's church, as well as guiding me on how I may consecrate and restore the church."

The ashes of the burned church began to move, slowly. Kakita was alone, after all, and the wind could make them move?

No.

The pray reached the spirits, and of course, being an adjurator she could see ghosts and spirits... And the ashes...

... moved again...

No one appeared, there was no one in the streets of the Dragon's Island. Strange, indeed...

... The space began to move...

And more weird things? Something was happening there. It was the holy spirit that was protecting that place of prey, place of faith?

... The form began to appear...

The sky was covered with dark clouds now, and a lightening descend to the earth, hitting the ground nearby.

... The form of a child appear...

That should be creepy. See ghosts is not healthy, do you know that?

... The little child pointed in direction of the woods...

And bu bye! The ghost must disappear! Die, ghost! The clouds in the sky remained there, of course. At least now she had a direction, no?

... And all returned to the earth.

The direction she had gotten was enough. If the holy spirit of the church had pointed her in the direction of the woods, there she must go, to seek out friend or foe.

Entering clara, she began to form the Nimbility and Celestial Armor spells on herself, enabling her to move swiftly and with protection against physical and arcana attacks. With guidance from the little child, she ran in the direction that was pointed out to her.

oocPlease, in the next time, describe the process of casting :) thanks!

Now protected against Arcana and some physical damage, and a bit more agile too, Kakita was ready to enter in the forest. She took a while arriving to the woods, but she was able to reach them without problems.

The Lightnings began to pierce the sky, and the rain began to fall. The dark covered the whole city, the whole Woods, only illuminated by a lightning here and there.

The forest was silent, every living being was hidden from the storm, Kakita seemed be the only living being walking in the woods... Well, at least she should not have problems find... Whatever she was looking for, right? Of course.

The rain was falling and Kakita was covered with water at this point. Maybe she should have chosen another brightening to visit the Church, no?

Miyuki sighed to herself. "I suppose it could have been worse," she thought. She has been through snowfall before in her early days in the military, so she understood how difficult terrain and weather can be.

Since it was raining and her vision is being obscured by the rainfall, she decided to take a short pause, closed her eyes for a while, cleared her mind, and then started to go into clara.

There was a reason behind it. The forest is literally one of nature essence (ara). She should be able to see if there are other creatures that were not part of the nature essence in the vicinity, giving her a headstart in noting any possible encounters later on.

Then she continued on her journey, seeking out answers that led to the destruction of the Church.

Despite being in Clara, Kakita saw nothing.

Every living being is made of all the essences that runs the planet. Life, death, nature, force, elemental, thought, every being is composed by all those essences.

And of course, Kakita wasn't a druid, so she could cast a Detect spell. And there are differences between Ara and Vis. The essence of the body is called Vis. Even if you can use it or not. You don't need to be a mage to have Vis. What is outside the body is called Ara. Of course, the Ara around the nature is the same as the Ara around a graveyard.

She walked and walked and walked and found... Nothing yet. The forest was silent, only the rain could be heard in the green shroud...

It suddenly struck her that the rain could be used in her favour. She remembered that water is a cleansing and purifying agent which could be used to cleanse herself spiritually.

She paused for a while, stopping her progress, and then started to take deep breaths, from her nose to her heart, and then from her heart to her mouth. The focus was there, with the rain all around her, and then she allowed the rain to naturally wash through her.

Then returning her thoughts back to the real world, with her arcane spells and the rain aiding her, she continued her progress. It didn't matter how long she had to move forward. She only knew that it was where she had to go.

The rain kept falling in the soft land, the life provided by Nature was happy to received that gift, water. Water to keep the life in that place. Not only the Flora was happy, but also the Fauna.

At this point, several animals came out of their shelters, invited by the rain to join the plants in the ritual of purification.

Until Kakita was noted.

Bears. For now. Bears were close, smelling the stranger to their forest. They knew that she didn't belonged to them, to the forest, she was an intruder! They were close, she could hear them from some trees behind her, and from her left... What to do now?

As a Priestess of Carmelya, the creatures of nature were sacred, even when they viewed her as foe. But she wasn't one to fight with the animals. Rather, she would prefer to identify herself as friend rather than foe.

Seeking to calm the animals down, Miyuki began her Aura of Peace prayer by clearing her mind and then entering into a state of clara, whereby her arcane vision enabled her to see arcanic energy of different colours around and within her.

Focusing on the Plane of Life, she began to channel the arcanic energies from the Plane of Life and the Essence of Life from around her (ara) into her own arcanic reserves (vis), creating mana for her to shape as she desired.

Utilising the technique of divination, she began to let her sense of calm and peace wash over her, and then let it spread all around her through the technique of alteration.

Feeling her faith within herself, Miyuki took a deep breath, closed her eyes briefly to visualize her sister's choir, with her memory back in her mind, she opened her eyes, focusing on her surroundings, and began to throw her voice outwards, supported by her deep breath, singing her prayer solemnly and gently:


"There are many stars lit up in the night sky now,
All have been restless for this special day,
We have worked for, many brightenings,
Many decorations on the trees,
We have been waiting for this, magical day here."

Then looking up briefly upwards, she continued:

"We have been singing like an angel, high up in the sky,"
after which, with a smile, she faces forward,
"The stars are shining brightly, We sing happily,
The thing we like about doing this together,
Comradeship among us here."
Concluding the second phrase, she puts her hands together in a rounded form at her mouth, she does an owl hoot: "Hoot, hoot, hoot."

Then with a wide smile, she sang gaily:

"Merry Merry Merry Day,
Merry Merry Very Brightening"

She paused briefly after the chorus, before continuing gently once again:

"There is a magic that comes once, only once every period,"
then she closes her eyes briefly and clasps her hand in prayer,
"Let us close our eyes, as we give our thanks,"
then opening up her eyes, she looks up,
"To the deities now, high up in the heavens,"
Looking forward, she continues on with an encouraging smile,
"Let us remember our own precious dreams,
There are many colours on the trees,
Let us light up our own hearts."

Coming to the chorus again, she sang gaily again, almost like a cheerleader.

"Merry Merry Merry Day,
Merry Merry Very Brightening,
Merry Merry Merry Day,
Merry Merry Very Brightening."

Then with her voice lowered, with her eyes closed, her hands clasped once again, and with a serene smile upon her face, she sang slowly but clearly, "Merry Merry Very Brightening."

Secrets :


Sister Princess RePure - Merry Very Christmas

The spell released by Kakita and the song worked in the bears. But the bears were just the beginning. Her path was long and dangerous, and she needed to be careful without any doubt.

The bears stood there, looking to her, relaxed with peace in their souls.

The forest was now full of life, every dangers could appear. Well, now with the first obstacle surpassed, she should proceed her path... Soon, she would find four paths. Just because the foliage was too dense to go in front just like that. Two of them to the left, one in front, another to the right. Which way?

She didn't like her options. She knew she was supposed to move straight, and it wasn't unexpected that she would run into obstacles. But having four paths? This was definitely something that she didn't like.

She would definitely need a guide for this one. What came to mind was to call for the spirit of the forest. A treant spirit maybe? She did call upon that spirit once when fight against an ancient dragon, and also sought the aid of elemental spirits against Champions of Aeternia in the past in Demios.

Seeking the environmental spirit of nature, she spoke softly, "In the name of the Holy Father Ioannes and my Holy Mother Carmelya, I wish to make a pact with you, great spirit of nature, and ask for your aid, by being my guardian spirit, guiding and accompanying me as I seek out my Holy Mother Carmelya's foe, who had destroyed my Holy Mother's Church in Demios. I am on a mission to serve my Holy Mother and deliver retribution to the ones that offended her. Please aid me."

...

But no one came. She was alone in the forest. Disappointed? Perhaps. But that wasn't the time to cry. After all, she had a choice to make. And she needed to discover the right path by herself, not with the help of others. Being helped by the spirit in the church was already luck, but the same thing won't happen twice.

She was alone, with the decision to make her own way. For which path?
