We get to an island the boat stops a little far from the shore. It can’t go any further due to the ruins surrounding the shore we get off the ship. And with a small boat we get as close as possible we then swim to shore unfortunately for Diablo he can’t swim. So Valetine had to hold on to him, we walk onto shore nothing, but ruins. “Was this a town?” I said
“Maybe…but as long as I’ve known it’s always been this way.” Allen said, we keep walking the island is covered with mountain range the closer we get the hotter it gets. “I hate the heat so damn much.”
“It’s hot because we are near an active volcano.” Ezekiel said
“Ah hell no! That’s it this is where I draw the line, I’m going back to the ship!” I said
“Katie get over here the volcano hasn’t erupted in years.” Ezekiel said
“What if it decides to erupt now? I refuse to go any further.” I said
“That’s an order.” Ezekiel said
“That’s an order.” I said mockingly
We get to the volcano a large building is at the bottom we enter. The ceiling center has caved in shedding light on Cybele and two priestesses at her side. Cybele wears a red robe, she sits on ruins that make a chair under a large statue of three woman. Each one with a different phase of the moon tattooed on t their stomachs. We sit on the ruins that make a circle, she stands the robe hits the floor exposing her naked body. The guys jaw drops, eyes popping out of their sockets as I turn away embarrassed. Our teachers sit there not faze by what they are seeing. She stops at each and every one of the guys looking down on them. She turns to Ezekiel she touches Ezekiel on the head she whispers something in his ear. She looks to Allen and said “What will you do when all falls apart? Who will keep you together? How will you keep hope alive? Where will you turn for the compassion you desperately need? To the sea to find a lonely heart just like yours.” she comes to me I don’t look at her. She kneels down and she places her hand on my face and turns my face to meet her left blue and right gold-colored eyes. She stands in the middle of the circle she waits. A strong hot wind carries ashes and embers from the volcano dances around her. It lifts her off her feet she spins and the wind dies she lands on her feet. She looks up hair in front of her face the blue eye is now gold, her gold eye is now blue.
Oh Katie we are too far apart, I miss you so much
But I couldn’t feel closer as I do to you now.
Don’t worry about me I’m happy where I am,
But I have a message for you.
“Remy? Is that you?” I said
What lies beyond the barriers of this world? If I told you would you believe me?
I see the walls of this world and many others crumbling one by one.
If I could warn you I would tell you this one of you will rise, one of you will fall.
A bond will be formed and it will be a strong bond, some will volunteer,
Some who understand you will never abandon you and one will follow for forgiveness.
But you are not given the luxury to say no. because you four are chosen to be our modern heroes.
“What are you talking about? Can you make sense?” I said
As that band forms another will crumble right before your eyes,
You cannot do anything to stop it because the road you will take is meant to be with others.
You are about to find out that the future is not as forgiving as you thought it was.
There is betrayal, there is confusion, there is blood,
There will be more loss than lost, and finally there is revenge.
“But isn’t Destiny what you make of it?” I said
But there is salvation yes, salvation.
And you will find it in the oddest places. If I could help you I would.
Oh, Kate those wings you acquired put the real angels to shame.
Your such a fake angel, Kate, confront the unknown head on.
Be the tough girl you are, be admirable, don’t lose that fire inside,
But above all else forgive those who trespass against you.
I love you Kate always remember that.
Take care guys
I could swear to you that it was Remy speaking through her. Cybele falls to the floor one of the priestess come to her. She covers her with the robe and helps Cybele back on the chair, the other priestess carries four scrolls. She hands one to the guys and me, “Cybele, drew these months ago she said when they come they will need these to help in the future.” I open mine it is a map with an X inside a cave. A riddle is at the bottom, the priestess lens in and says “I’m sorry, try to keep your heart open.”
“Thank you and I will keep my heart open but what are you sorry for?” I said
“For his lie, you will suffer.” she said, she looks at Ezekiel
“Ezekiel what is she talking about?” I said, Ezekiel get up and walks away then entire way home he stayed locked inside his room. What lie and why do I have to pay for it?
