First topic message reminder :

This cathedral worships a heart-shaped deity who is reportedly fixed on the moon. They painstakingly perform religious rituals at certain phases of the moon. They focus on using the light of the moon to banish the undead and to heal the injured and sick. The stained glass windows record great wars of power and terror, but today they are a benevolent group.

"So. A life extended was your plea. So your service... A life reduction? Or perhaps your service shall require the compassion you cling to for your sister. What is given takes away. What do you think?"

"Fascinating. You will serve us well, little killer. But your price will be paid later. You are not yet ready."

"Now we beat each other with pointy metal things and swing from... I don't think people swing from anything these days, actually. But yes, I have negotiated with beings of your kind before."

He snickers.

"I say " negotiate", but it was mostly me sending them back to whence they came."

More laugh.

The voices laugh too. "That would be quite entertaining, to watch you try to ship me--the window--back to the craftsman who built it."

"If only breaking me would make the voices stop. But alas, we can speak from the mouths of any who has been linked to us."

The old woman's mouth opens of its own accord, and the voices now come from her. "Like so."



"And, we would imagine, the girl as well."

"Right."

Yoren's entire body starts to shake slightly.

"Of... Fucking. Course."

The shaking is getting worse.

"Ha. Hahaha. Hahahahahahaha. HAHAHAHAHA!"

"Oh, come now, it wasn't that funny."


A pause.

"You... do know we were joking, right? She hasn't undergone the Binding ritual, of course she wouldn't be linked to us."

"It doesn't. Nothing matters. But I'd like an approximation, just so I have a benchmark for how many people to destroy. I believe I'll start with your pet crone, and my sister of course, just to be safe."

He let's out another laugh, this one even longer than the last. Then, he draws his sword. The fire enaminating from it turns from blue to black.

The voices start cackling, no longer in perfect unison. "See how easy it is to get man to kill his own sister? Whom he was just demanding we save? We should ask him to impale himself, given he's the one in our debt... Don't you think?"

The crone leaves the room, leaving just Ina and Yoren. Apparently Yoren failed to notice Nalima leaving, along with the minor nun.

"It's so fun to watch you all play your little games... Pull a few strings here and there and you all react so beautifully. We can't wait to see what happens here, for instance. We're on the edge of our seat!"

"Can't say impaling myself hasn't crossed my mind, but I'm a bit fond of not dying. Besides, my arm won't let me, mean thing it is!"

"Oh no. Not at all. I'd allow myself to die first. I already make a habit of killing everyone who harms her."

"Strange, how killing leads to killing. What if she was her own worst enemy? What if you were endangering her? Killing, killing, killing. We're quite fond of that word. It's quite insidious. You grow callous to it on the surface, but it just seeps down, staining your psyche."

"What if we were to tell you that... Even though you've been trying to protect her, every life you take puts her in a bit more danger? Not just from those wanting revenge... But from you? How long will it be until she can't bear to look at you? I mean, we're not much of a gambler, but we'd wager a good half of our powers that it won't be more than a year."

"I'd wager you're right, magical talking window demon. But don't worry. I'm sure this,"

He lets the sleeve of his coat fall back on his left arm, baring it to half.

On it are several hundred thousand tiny wards that appear to be carved into his skin, but marred by lines through it. The arm looks... Pretty terrible.

"Will kill me sooner."

The voices laugh as if he made a hilarious joke.

"Oh, that's rich. But no. You're never... "done"."

They reach an ominous near-whisper. "Don't you know what happens when you die?" They continue to chuckle.

"Hellfire? Nothingness? Eternal torment?"

He shrugs.

"How about reanimation?"

The chuckling increases, and a vision of a dead Yoren being moved by puppet strings appears on the window. It moves around for a bit, then pulls out a sword and stabs an Ina standing nearby.

Holding the strings is Elene, her dead eyes capturing her fright from right before Nalima decapitated her.

The vision fades just as instantly, but the afterimage seems seared into his mind.
