The Nightmare of the Goddess
It was a beautiful waterfall the trees looked so surreal in the moonlight of the full moon, the bushes were splattered with water from recent rains, the waterfall sounded calm and sothing to her ears. She listened to it and felt free for once in her life, but was shakened from that calm when she heard russeling from her right.
"Hello!"She yelled starting to get up from her positin next to the waters edge ready to jump to the rock in the middle of the water."Who's there! Answer me!"She yelled again taking a crystal like dagger from her belt.
The wind whirled around her and as it did she heard a whisper alnog with it that said,"You are one with all yet you are none what are you? Are you Earth? Fire? Wind? Water? Which is you? None! You are none! You are nothing, no element just nothing! You should not live, living is a precious gift and you care not for it! You should die! Die by the people who have helped you!" She jolted as she saw her friends before her eyes.
"Guys what are you doing? I thought you all were resting."She said staggering back.
"Selene our Goddesses have spoken you must pay for your lack of humanity."Said one with her red hair tied back in a pony tail and with a red silk formal dress on.
"Yes they have spoken we're sorry but we must do as they ask."Said another with blonde curly shoulder length hair and a golden dress on.
"I hope someone in heaven can repent for you."Said a girl with blue mid back length hair and a long blue dress.
"Please forgive us."Said a green short haird girl with a short green dress on.
"Guys don't listen those who talked to you are not your Gods or Goddesses! Please we have been friends for years now you must believe me! Please!"Selene pleaded her long blue hair swaying in the breeze, her silver and grey dress rustling softly. Selene looked at her friends her black eyes showing her worry for her friends."Please guys you are my friends I don't want to hurt you!"She pleaded again knowing that with her power she could kill her friends but she didn't want too but then the choice was decided.
"We are sorry. ATTACK NOW!"Yelled the red head.
Selene looked sad as she stepped onto the water and danced across the surface easly getting to the other side and running off in to the forest of what she didn't know was going to be her and her best friends graves. Tears rolled down her pearl white cheeks freely showing her saddenss. Selene ran in to a open field were she picked was were she would give it her all to help her friends. Selene started a dance, a dance of the God of Rebirth.
"Hissayo God of Rebirth I ask of you a request as I dance my last and final dance of my life. Please as I offer nothing but myself to please reborn my friends they have been misguided but they are true and loyal I ask you this one favor and offer my life to you when I die as the offering!"Selene asked the God as she twirled one last time and stopped to see that her friends were very close."Will you except my offer!"She yelled to the sky.
Thunder crackeled and the wind wipped around her as she got her answer in a thunderous 'BOOM!' Selene smiled as tears again trailed wet salty streaks down her cheeks. Rain started to fall and her dress was getting soaked and the rain mixed with her tears as she cryed harder when her friends showed up.
"I hope you can forgive me in the future my dear beloved friends."Selene said as she chanted a spell of Death.
Unleash you cold furry upon thy enemys
Your bony fingered hands reach out to them
In a cold and breathless grasp without
Emotions of any to you.
Death be as swift to them as to me in this hour
I ask of you to be swift and merciful
Death unleash thy furry take the lives you wish
I am your servent as I watch your destruction
Death I ask thee to take the lives of these four!
As she finished she saw her friends faces turn pale as if they were ghosts and not living breathing humans. She looked at them one last time as she herself felt her life slip away from her. She asked that the ground help them slowly down to the Earth as to not harm them. As she slipped in to a darkness that was not warm and bright she heard a sweet and velvety voice say to her,"You are as beautiful as the moon and as sweet as starfruit. I will not let your soul wonder you will be reborn to a new life, your friends will be drawn to you and you to them. You will not know they are there but you will feel safety and secure. I will watch over you closely you may not see me but I will you." The voice faded and so did the last of Selene's breath and life, she took one more glance at her friends and swore she will find who did this to them and that person or thing will pay dearly and with their life!
Just as Selene closed her eyes Chihiro jolted upright breathing hard and fast her hair clinging to her sweating face. Her clothes were drenched in sweat and she smelled salt and found she was crying.
'What was that? A past life? No another's dream? But this seems so fimilar...'
Chihiro looked at her clock and saw it was one hour before school and she was feeling like crap well hell she looked like crap as she walked in to the bathroom turned the light on and looked in the mirror. Chihiro sighed and decided to take a shower to wake herself up and see if she could get ahead on her school studys. After her normal 20 minutes of taking a shower Chihiro got out and put her uniform on and packed her bags to go to the Library since it's opened all day and night. As Chihiro was leaving the dorms she felt an icy wind go around her.
"Excuse me Miss I need some help."Said a man's voice from the side of the path she was walking on.
Chihiro looked over to see a tall man in a teacher's uniform but was not a teacher she remembered. Chihiro reached for her bag calmly.
"Who are you sir?"Chihiro asked as she turned to face the man.
"My name is Hiko I am a new teacher. I don't know my way around yet."The man said as he stepped closer to Chihiro. Though just as he did that out of no where the man was tackled by something in red.
"Dante?" Chihiro said as her faced screwed up.
The man kicked the thing in red off and jumped up on a tree."This is not over Tony!"The man screamed as he jumped into the air and dissappeared.
"Dante...?"Chihiro hesitantly asked.
"Huh? No the names Tony. And you are Babe?"The man said.
"The name is Chihiro not Babe and so help me you call me that again I will kick your ass to next Tuesday."Chihiro said as she crossed her arms over her chest.
"Now, now calm down Babe."The man said walking towards her.
"Oh that's it."Chihiro dropped her bags and books walked over to the man and punched him hard.
"What the hell was that for?"The man said.
"I told you not to call me Babe ya dick now what the hell are you doing here you look like my brothers but I have never seen you in the family meetings."Chihiro said as she backed away feeling better.
"What do you mean I look like your brothers?"The man said.
"Sir..."Chihiro was about to say but was interrupted.
"The name is Tony use it not you or sir."Tony said getting up.
"Fine Tony."Chihiro said pulling out her wallet and getting the pictures of her brothers."These are my brothers Dante and Vergil."She said as she showed him the pictures.
Tony looked at them and was surprised that they looked alike."Heh well I don't know them and I know my parents thank you I don't think we are related."Tony said about to leave.
"Tony. Stop where you are dear nephew."Chihiro heard her dad's voice.
"Dad?"Chihiro said turning to the voice.
"Dad? That's your dad? He's my Uncle."Tony said.
"Yes that's my dad...Father who is this boy and why have I not seen him before?"Chihiro asked looking at her dad.
"He is a runaway of the family I've been keeping tabs on him since he ranaway from my sister."Sparda said smiling.
"What? Your the one who's been following me! Damn dick!"Tony yelled.
"Chihiro sweetheart would you mind taking us to the office."Sparda said smiling still.
Chihiro nodded and took a deep breath and all three were then in Sparda's office.
"Thank you sweetheart."Sparda said as he was about to kiss her forehead.
Chihiro nodded and then picked up her bag and books and left before Sparda could kiss her. Chihiro was about to head to class when the intercome cam on.
"ALL CLASSES HAVE BEEN POSPONED UNTIL TOMORROW! I REPEAT ALL CLASSES HAVE BEEN POSPONED UNTIL TOMORROW HAVE A GREAT DAY!"
Chihiro sighed and headed back to the Library when out of no where Kaname was beside her."Love what is troubling you?"He asked.
"Nothing."Chihiro quickly said as she jumped a little.
"It has to be something when even I can scare you."Kaname said.
"Please I need to be alone."Chihiro said upping her pace.
"As you wish."Kaname then was gone.
Chihiro walked in the Library and went stright to the Gods and Goddesses section. When Chihiro couldn't find what she was looking for she left the Library and sighed as she knew there was one place she could check and she didn't feel like dealing with twins, but what could she do? She needed answers and they had them...hopefully. Chihiro was leaving the school when she heard the fimilar flutter of wings.
"Hello Cora how are you today?"Chihiro asked as the butterfly landed on her.
Fine. Where are you going?
"To a place for answers."She said calmly.
Chihiro walked for a bit and then looked upon the store that she didn't want to go in but had no choice. She opened the door and the bell rang.
"Hey Sano, Sona! I have a few questions that I need answers."Chihiro said but as she did a figure stepped out of the shadows.
"Miss Blood you will be coimg with us."Said a man's voice.
Chihiro jumped and backed away to see it was a God she knew the face from a text book the God of smithing. The God was tall and well built his eyesblack as coals, his hair short and a grey color, he was wear deer skin pants and a shirt.
"Um no thanks with all do repsect God Thinthil but I rather not, see I like Earth not Heaven or Hell right now."Chihiro said keeping a good distance.
"Miss Blood you have no choice you did not take a Dance you are in trouble."Thinthil said stepping towards her.
Chihiro looked around quickly and saw a candle of light which can stun a God or Goddes if they get surprised.
"Fire!"Chihiro yelled and pointed to the candle and as Thinthil turned he was stunned by the light."I'm not some normal school girl I listen in class thank you!"Chihiro said as she raced out of the store.
What are you going to do that lasts about four minutes.
"I don't know. I need a haven, but I don't know one school isn't one since Gods and Goddesses are welcomed..."Chihiro said running.
"Hey Chicky you need a place where Heaven or Hell can't touch ya?"Said a voice she left only an hour ago.
"Ya you know one Tony?"Chihiro said as she looked to see Tony in a 5th year outfit his silver hair loose everywhere.
"Sure do this way before he gets out."Tony said as he ran around a corner.
Chihiro followed him and was keeping up nicely when they came to a shop looking place with the walls painted in symbols and markings. Tony walked in and Chihiro hearing a screech ran in after him.
"They can't come in. This place was built to keep anything Heavenly or Hellish out. So Chicky what's up with the Gods and Goddess after you?"Tony asked sitting down on a couch.
"Please before I punch you again the name is Chihiro or call me Chi. And it's because I did not do a Dance I guess."Chihiro said sitting in a chair.
"Alright just don't hit me. So your a Dancer?"Tony asked.
"Yes I am thee Dancer. And I wish I wasn't right now."Chihiro said trying to relax.
"Heh well must be hard. Heard that the last one died by killing herself."Tony said opening a book.
"Wait what last one?"Chihiro asked hurridly.
"Yeah that chick Selene. No one talked about it but some say she killed herself and her friends because they turned against her and tried to kill her but she got to them first. But it's just rumors."Tony said looking at Chihiro.
"I don't think the rumors are wrong. I had a dream last night of Selene and four others they all had colored hair and dresses. They were trying to kill her and she called the God of Rebirth and Death her life was taken as a offering. I was woken up when she died."Chihiro said trying to remember the whole dream.
"Heh well have you had these often?"Tony asked.
"Not like that one...I can't remember much though. It's like slipping away the harder I try to think about it."Chihiro said as she felt a head ache coming.
"Go to sleep."Tony said.
"Go back to sleep and maybe the dream will come back. That's what I'm saying."Tony repeated.
"That might work...Is there a bed here I do not want to go back out with a God on my ass excuse my use of words."Chihiro said.
"Sure upstairs."Tony said.
"I need you to come up with me to help incase I thrash or I say something while I sleep."Chihiro said getting up. Tony nodded bringing a book with him as he lead Chihiro upstairs. Chihiro followed him and looked around to see that everything walls, floors, rooms, and even doors had symbols on them.
"Here this is the main bed sleep in here."Tony said as he opened the door and Chihiro's eyes widened as she saw a canope bed with white flowers decorating the curtain, a kings size bed, red walls, black carpet, desk, dresser, a small window, and a closet.
"Wow this is beautiful! Did you decorate this?"Chihiro asked as she stepped in.
"No it was my sisters though she doesn't live with me anymore."Tony said as he got a chair from the desk and put it next to the bed. Tony pulled the curtains away to reveal a whitesheeted bed with the same flower decorations.
"Oh is she older than you?"Chihiro asked as she went to him.
"No she's younger and died."Tony said as though he had no life in him.
"Oh I'm sorry."Chihiro looked around and saw a picture on the desk and went to it."Was this her?"Chihiro asked picking up the picture to see a beautiful young girl in a flower sundress, with blonde-silver long hair, and baby blue eyes.
"Yes Lisa was her name. She was sacrificed because our God needed one no matter what even with a Dancer."Tony said getting comfertable.
Chihiro put the picture down and sighed knowing that she was there when Lisa was remembered the secen and it almost made her cry. Chihiro went to the bed and climbed in of course taking her shoes off. Chihiro went to the pillows and layed on her back."If I mumble or talk try to write it down if you can please."Chihiro said as she closed her eyes to hopeflly find what her dreams are telling her.
