Chapter 10

I’M ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! god that was awful………. must’ve been some sort of weird quick food poisoning…. but i have had my nap, got up feeling better, and then kept the writing train a’rolling!!! here’s your chapter, last one for the day.



{……………………….. honestly Alty I’m not sure If I should be surprised, or just come to expect stuff like this from you…….} (Sally)
SALLY!!! Oh gosh it’s been AGES!!!…….. So how are things?
{Meh….. could be worse……. Helly is still being a bitch. She hasn’t talked to ANYONE ever since I locked her out of communicating with you, last I heard she was off sulking with her high priestess in her main temple…. Most of the other gods seem alright though. They even threw me a CREATION PARTY!!! You should have seen it there was astral cake, offerings, and we even played pin the feature on the species!!! I MADE AN AWESOME PUPPY-TIGER-BEAR THING!!! I call him Gerald, he’s the first of his kind!!!} (Sally)
…………………………………………. Well someone has been enjoying themselves haven’t they?
{Yep <3} (Sally)
Sooooooooooo…………. I assume by the fact that you’re still here you have something to talk about?
{Yep <3} (Sally)
…………………………………..Soooooooooooo……………………… want to share?
{Yep <3} (Sally)
………………. Are you even listening anymore?
{Yep <3} (Sally)
SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
{HUH?! WHAT?! ARE WE UNDER ATTACK?!?!  SIC ‘EM GERALD!!!!!} (Sally)
Oh good your back with me.
{………………………… Sorry about that I was petting Gerald………….. he’s just so fluffy ya’know………….. I got lost in the fluff for a moment there, that happens sometimes……… but I’m back……. Totally not playing with my new pets-……….. I mean sacred beasts……………………….. Where were we again?} (Sally)
You wanted to talk to me?
{Oh yeah! *Ahem*      Somehow you managed to break a portion of Helly’s blessing, and you can somehow channel Faith like a god…….. Seriously Alty you have one messed up soul. Non-divine beings shouldn’t be able to do all this…….. Well at least not without suffering intense pain as their very soul is slowly shattered from the inside out, wiping them from existence itself in their entirety.} (Sally)
Oh that sounds bad…… how do I NOT do that?
{That’s the point! None of that is happening to you now, your long past where the point of no return should have been……. Honestly I’m not sure why you’re even alive anymore…..} (Sally)
AND YOU’RE JUST MENTIONING THIS NOW!!!!!!!!! Sally don’t you think I might have wanted to know something like this, oh I don’t know, around the time I could FUCKING STOP ACCIDENTALLY RISKING MY ENTIRE EXISTENCE!!!!!!!! I thought it was your job to keep me safe or whatever…..
{But you’re fine right?….. Plus there was the party….. And fluffy Gerald…………..} (Sally)
……………….. Hiding behind a cute fluffy animal shield isn’t fair Sally….. No one can stay mad at cute fluffy animals…….
{I know right!!! It’s like the whole “Cute is JUSTICE so bow down to me!!!!” thing you’re doing. That’s where I got the idea… I learned it from watching you ALTY!!! I LEARNED IT FROM WATCHING YOU!!!!           Lol       <3} (Sally)
Fine….. Whatever….. So how do I USE faith anyway?
{Sorry Alty I can’t tell you that………………….. wait what do you mean he’s allowed to know Gerald? No non-divine is supposed to have that information, and no divine can give it to them………. No silly-willy… Alty can’t be divine he’s just a reincarnated mortal with a wacky soul……….. I KNOW his soul LOOKS kinda divine, but Helly reincarnated him she couldn’t DO that if he was one of us……. OHHHHHHH!!!! Yeah I guess never considered that!!! YOUR SO SMART GERRY-BEAR GIVE ME A BIG FLUFFY HUG!!!!!!} (Sally)
…………………Ummmmmmm………. Hey Sally mind clueing in the guy who CAN’T hear you’re apparently smart, talking…… fluffy-Puppy-Tiger-Bear? Please? I’d love you forever! And give you cookies!!!
{Oh yeah sorry about that…. YES I’m telling him now Ger-Ger…. don’t be so pushy……. So Gerald says you’re probably part divine…. Which would explain how you made it through the Void with even just partial memories intact…. And also how your able to channel Faith without it destroying you…… and talk to the Divine all the time without it melting your brain……. Really it makes a lot of sense when you think about it….. How have none of the other divines thought of this? …………………… HEY!!! That’s not nice, I’M a divine too ya’know……………………………. Well I was SMART enough to create YOU wasn’t I?………….. Well how was I supposed to know that you meant you wanted a MATE and not just KIDS, that’s called being CLEAR Gerald you should try it sometime…. WHAT DID YOU CALL ME!!!!!!} (Sally)
……………………………………………………….. She totally forgot I’m here didn’t she……. HEY!!!! ………….Ummmm HEY SALLY!!!! Can we go back to talking about my question now? …………….Sally? …………….
{Oh uh….. yeah of course Alty…………. OH SHUT UP GERALD!!!! I SWEAR I’M GONNA SKIN YOU AND MAKE YOU A PILLOW!!!! I MEAN IT THIS TIME!!!!!………….. Geez why can’t that guy be more like his kids…….} (Sally)
What are his kids like?
{Oh they are just AWESOME!!! They’re like an army of CUDDLY DOOM!!! and they are all so totally adorbs. I made them retain their youthful spirit eternally ya’know since Gerald said he wanted to have kids so bad………..} (Sally)
……………….how many makes up an army of Cuddly-Doom to you Sally?
{Only a few thousand…….. I would have made more, but I’m only getting faith from you, Gerald, and what the other divines decide to share with me……………} (Sally)
NO WONDER GERALD SAID ALL THAT!!!! YOU GAVE THE GUY THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN WHO’LL NEVER GROW UP AND NO ONE TO HELP RAISE THEM OR MAKE MORE WITH!!!!!
{Hey only a hundred are ACTUALLY Gerald’s kids….. I wanted them to have friends to play with, and love later who weren’t their siblings…..} (Sally)
Sally your evil……….. Remind me to never piss you off….. Or ask you to make me a mate……
{Yep <3…………… wait what?} (Sally)
So about faith… and how I’m apparently part divine, how is that possible anyway?
{Well you see Alty, when a divine and a mortal love each other VERY MUCH-….} (Sally)
I GOT IT!!!! I got it! …………….So what about Faith?
{Weeeeeelllllllllll you spend it…… usually divines use it to make awesome stuff or perform miracles, like me making Gerald or Helly reincarnating you….. But I don’t think YOU’LL be able to do stuff like that….. You might be able to use them to improve yourself though….} (Sally)
SO FAITH=STAT POINTS!?!?!?! SWEET!!!!!!
{Oh looks like that’s all the time we get, I’m pretty much out of power again……… Maybe I shouldn’t have made so many Pup-ige-ears after all……. So how much Faith do you have anyway?} (Sally)
………………………….1…………….
{WHAT!!! You can’t do ANYTHING with just 1 point of faith!!! You’ll need at LEEEEEEAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTT-……………….} (Sally)
DAMNIT SALLY LEAD WITH THAT TYPE OF STUFF NEXT TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“…………..Abil……ity………..up……..grade………..ed?……………………” (Alt)
I awoke to the sight of Yanta giving me the biggest and most sincere smile of happiness I had ever seen. I also noticed that we were both absolutely DRENCHED in blood, tears, and…….. other liquids Yanta had kindly provided…. that were currently coating and pooled around us. Honestly it was a rather disturbing sight, it looked like there was an orgy here…… than everyone killed each other in the bloodiest way possible. All that were missing were the bodies….
“Master do you feel better now, after your rest? I deeply apologize if I had hurt you during my cleansing….” (Yan)
“…………………… Yeah, no I’m ok……….” (Alt)
“Master?” (Yan)
Oh shit did I just say that OUTLOUD!!!! FUCK!!!!! It must be the shock of all this new information, I mean first I find out I’m some sort of demigod…. then that Sally has some sort of divine equivalent of crazy-cat-lady syndrome…. AND THEN that the Phantus family might not be as Dead as I first thought……. AND WHO THE ACTUAL FUCK CAN KILL AN ANCESTOR!!!!!! Aren’t those the super-uber-ancient-vampire-death-incarnate guys!!! The way books described them they seemed like fucking UNSTOPIBLE FORCES OF NATURE not something someone could kill……….. Oh fuck I hope they don’t go after other Phantus next… I’M other Phantus………………
“Master, you seem troubled?” (Yan)
Ok…… Alt calm down you can still salvage this you just have to be unbearably cute, cute enough to make her forget what she just heard….. Just channel Gerald….. I got this!!!!!!
I gave a bright, cheery, and innocent smile, the very picture of DO-NO-WRONG. I looked up at her making direct eye contact and focusing my all into being the cutest, most believable, and most innocent thing to ever grace Quellios with my presence.
“….Nwooooo……” (Alt)
“Master there is no need to hide your intelligence from ME, I realized that this was all your plan half way through my cleansing…” (Yan)
……………….Well………… Shit that didn’t work NEARLY as well as I thought it would…. At least she’s already my totally loyal slave right?………….. Unless you count that thing about other high-end noble Phantus being able to steal away those not in the LAST stage of my bloods effects…….. Fuck that just made me feel insecure…….. FUCK I need to make SURE anyone I do this to is in the last stages….. OH SHIT FERA!!!!! I didn’t even know there was another level to my ability when SHE drank my blood, she CAN’T be at the last stage!!! I need to go change that FAST in case some other Phantus runs into her!!!
I looked at my newest slave…………. And realized that calling her slave seemed… inadequate to describe what she was now……. It had always bugged me that after having a large amount of my blood someone seemed…. Different to me somehow…. Nothing like that servant I gave some blood to, to test the potency off the stuff. That was a slave, bound by the need to drink more of me but not able to do so unless I permit it… it was almost mercy when I had Fera kill her….
Fera was kinda like that too at first, but over time she seemed different too, just not to the extent of Yan here… maybe….
“What are you?” (Alt)
“Yanta Fiessus, your eternally willing and able servant” (Yan)
………….. Yeah that’s a bit different than the people bound by collars, magic, or training…. That’s clear worship in her….. Everything really, and Empathic Acts hasn’t ever steered me wrong…. Cultists maybe… Nah that makes it sound like I’m plotting to destroy the world and unleash Cthulhu or something…. Huh I guess I’ll have to seriously think about this naming thing later, its bugging the hell outta me….
I looked at Yan and dropped the whole cute act, she didn’t even flinch under my stare, in fact she seemed almost…… happy? No that’s……..
Ecstasy? Really just from me looking at her? Wow this HAS to be the last stage of my blood on her… I haven’t even done anything yet….
“Yan how long has it been?” (Alt)
She didn’t even hesitate to think.
“It has been approximately seven hours since I returned to full conciseness, however I am sad to say that I do not know how long I was under during my cleansing.” (Yan)
“You keep saying that… Cleansing… what is that? Is it when I gave you my blood?” (Alt)
“It is when you touched my soul, my very being with the pleasure of your grace. At first I couldn’t understand that, but now….. Now I know what happened to me, you gave me new purpose, new life… I am yours nothing more and nothing less. Use me, kill me, cast me aside… It does not matter. I am, and always shall be yours, and without you I am less than nothing. You hold my life, my very soul now, because I GAVE it to you. You are my master and you’re will is my will. Your desires, are MY desires… I want only to be of use to you master that is all. The cleansing is the process that showed me this, I know the name I have given it is unworthy, but it is all I could think of to call it.” (Yan)
That’s…………….. Wow…………………… Ummmmm……………………… Damn……………………
I sense so much worship radiating from Yan she makes Fera’s devotion to the power of mom’s “Motherly love” seem indifferent…. I can’t even begin to describe this, but I know this woman, Yanta Fiessus, would do anything, ANYTHING I asked of her. There would be no hesitation or confliction in her, just simple, ready, and total compliance to my will.
It’s actually fucking SCARY how much power I have over this woman, and I don’t think I like it. It seems more like a heavy responsibility and burden than merely owning and controlling a slave…. I don’t think I’ll do this too often, I would go insane if I had these feelings but multiplied by 1,000,000….. Hell even 100 might be pushing it…
And for some reason my soul feels…. Heavy…… when I look at her. Yep I’m not sure I like this at all…….
I looked away from Yan’s gaze and tried to sort out all these new thoughts and feelings running rampant inside of me. I’m not sure if I did, but at least now I can focus on my situation, and not all this deep philosophical soul searching bullshit. It just isn’t like me… or at least the ME I want to be. Leave all the complex shit for Sally, Hellatia, and all the other gods to deal with I just have to be me, and act how I want.
“Soooo…… you wouldn’t happen to have some sort of awesome plan to escape this place would you? Preferably one that lets me get sweet painful vengeance on the people that orchestrated this?” (Alt)
Yan gave a smile that was downright evil looking. It made her look a LOT scarier than her soft atmosphere made me think she was capable of…
“Yes master. I had a lot of time to think while you rested, and I might just have found the PERFECT plan to get vengeance on all those involved with this without risking either of us……. But first I would like to beg for your assistance…” (Yan)
Yan looked down and away, like she was mortally ashamed to even CONSIDER asking me for a favor, nonetheless DO so.
This must be REALLY important to her…….
“I’m listening………….” (Alt)
Yan looked up to me with hope and determination.
“I want you to spare and cleanse my friend Till………………………………..” (Yan)
