Black Black Black X


 

Your eyes are almost unable to open but you choose to close your eyes because the pain is too much to understand anything else. You listen to the wind and hear the world speak to you. Rushing wind around you carries feelings of happiness and joy - they fill you up with hope and love and you become calm once more.

Your own ambitions shine in your thoughts. There is a puzzling world you see, it is your own. Searching for yourself you see you as a profound creature but unsure of how or why you are. All is well until everything seems to come crashing down around you. Creatures of many different races are colliding and dying one by one, some not dying so easily. There is a sense of a dreadful presence and yet healing essence in the air. You know about this somehow. You feel like everything was started because of you. Suddenly every creature that was once battling for glory and conquest, stopped.


 

You are giving one more chance to see everything for what it really is. On the cliffside, you see something remarkable. It is a human. A woman to be exact. You wish you could move further but something holds you back.

Time has you here until your dying breath. Struggle some more, it won't take away the agonizing memories you created yourself. Burn in the three blacks. You deserve to burn in blackness. The pain that you made is now yours! Let the fire consume you and be done!

It was like a dagger in the night, everything that was a feeling of belonging was lost. Like home in your heart was taken away before you could say goodbye to it. Your story was nothing short of magic or a miracle. But in time you will see that you are still only human. A fragile creature, born to endure the brunt of what reality has delivered to you since day one.

What element are you? We all were born with the blessing by a certain deity or deities if you wish. Were you given the fire in your soul at birth when you were born? I wonder, perhaps you were you meant to become unreadable to the world and show great things at some point in history? Bah, foolery of it all. I know one thing for sure, we will be talking very soon you and I. When you wake up, remember my name. It's Brash on. May Shanrah lead your soul back in time to correct what was damaged.”

Author's note: Shanrah is a temp name. A god of much belonging in his world and not the only one of its kind. There should be many to bring along in order to make a viable story for fantasy enjoyment purposes. I always loved magic. Something tore across from another world and mixed into the human substance mash.

After hearing the voice you remember something as your memory unfolds. "I hear something or someone, it's hard to make – wait, I was alive? Everything feels like it's slowing down. I must be dying.” Said Ozwald.

A minute became an hour. His own blood was slowing its flow from his body. He felt like he belonged here like this was his choice to be in this dream-like world.

In this place, you're floating in what seems to be a world of almost.. pure black stones and blue stones across the void. Each stone shining as bright as you have ever felt about someone special -- in the moment of your diminishing life.

Though the blissful color does not represent bad or good, each radiant stone shines as best it can with the prevailing dark void. Some are cut to an almost perfect balance, each showing you something you always wanted to see. Some, you wish you looked away before the thought of what you saw ate at your very mind and soul. The shrills of the dead, the laughter of many living people surround you. You hear a familiar sound. One that carries your pain out the door and into a place a harmony. You open your eyes and look around to see which one is talking. “It's her,” Oswald said with hope. It took everything he had in his mind to move his body. Oswald swam across the gaping void to what he thought was his love, Elena. As you draw near the sound the stone starts to liquefy, as if you were coming closer to what the truth really was the more it melted and fell down into the abyss below. You close your eyes once more. Giving up hope and letting whatever is happening, happen.

"WAKE UP! There are lots to do today! There's the world to grab out there, ya know?" Elena said with joy.

You moan and groan in bed because you know you you're a slow riser, but it's fine. You wonder the time and remember a terrible dream. You wonder about everything you can remember, allowing yourself a moment of silence before you speak to your partner.

"Hello? How did you sleep poop head?" She giggles. "Oh you know, like the dead. So it was.. Sugoi." He replied. "Your such a nerd. Good morning as well." Elena smiled.

You start on getting around for the day and know there is much to do and amazing things to follow. Your dreams have become a reality. You feel like you are in a wonderful place now. Though you crave a mocha as soon as possible. With extra everything is fine.

"I question myself, as I should. Not only prior life lessons have taught me that you can trust anyone, just don't trust the devil inside of them. The past has caught up to me before, why not now or again?" He pondered. "My experience is we all lived a bad and good life, the hurt may be felt by us and remembered, but we can always cling to new adventures. But now I have something worth preserving for, because I know I can preserve through anything now. I just need time. I'll get my head straight. For me, for her." Ozwald said.

"Life for me was never this good. My childhood wasn't glamor, but who's is? My mother worked her butt off just to support two kids. Can't say I respect all of them, but what choice do I have? Living a life of love is a better way. They are so amazing, I don't know -what I would do without them - truly. I'm glad to know they are willing to be with someone like..me." Ozwald thought.

"Snap out of it man. Time to get ready." Elena tossed a pillow at Oswald's face. As if she was planning it all along.

"Good morning love.” She sweetly said with heart. “I am excited to go out with you today. But that's most of the days we get to go be free. I do this for only you. I hope that makes you happy, poophead." She gleamed.

"There is nothing else greater in the world or universe as grand as you are. You know why? Because of the pursuit of showing you that you are never alone. If we fight, then let's fight together. If we break, let us mend each other's wounds and sail across the ocean while we do it. You remember that day when 'we' happened? It was the start of a journey to your world so I may have the honor to stay and see what is real." Ozwald said. "What is real? You think I am real?" She said hesitantly. Faith or courage not being her strong point in these situations.. but ever learning and growing.

She felt her world tremble before the thought of being fully understood as something that is real and good. She thought to herself. "Of course I am real, but he knows..maybe for the rest of my life - that everything I am is real about this and beautiful. Yes. Realize the truth - never guess again. ” Never guess..again, she thought. "You're so sure of..that? Wow, what a way to jump start my morning honey, I didn't know you felt that way. That's like.. 100 deep men.”

*100 is a term used these days to convey how impactful anything is to the given person. For the lols.

She ponders what has just changed in your life. You remember what you give in trust is what you are given back. You know what your heart wants. You can always grow together.

"Thank you..” She said with a heart brimming full of joy and love. “I really do hope that will always remain among us. You have given me so much more faith in my life and my ability to handle some real obstacles in not just mine but our life. And for just that, I am grateful. But guess what?" Tears running slowing down her cheeks.

"Yes?" Ozwald waited patiently for her words.

"I love your way of thinking when it comes to being about us. I want to give you everything you deserve for me. Because we both are amazing partners who have so much potential to be used together to create our own world. Ozwald, you are my everything. Sometimes I think you are from a different century Ozwald, but you are real as anything I have ever laid eyes on. I don't wanna cut this short but.. we should really get going. It's almost 8 AM, honey. And we have lots to do." She giggled.

"Remind me why we got up this early?” Ozwald yawned. "Simple, kill the batman. I'm funny, ain't I?" She smiles with a glimmer in her eyes. "Credit for trying!" He smiled back at Elena. “Hey! I am uber funny and you know it.” Said Elena.

"Driving to the best spot to really open up to her. This time it will be different. Something special to hold on to. Though we have our small arguments over trivial matters or sometimes trivial goals, we find a way to reach the middle ground. Sometimes you just have to sit back and wait for an answer to come, and whenever you are ready. I know, that love can be a test of your patience and time. Question is, how much will you always give?"

*Evil villain - dark, evil, unnamed, old creature, god(s)? dark magic, *


 

Your truth of course. The truth of what and who you really are. Foolish human. So easily gutted and skewed. I can't wait until the creatures of our world eat you alive before I do. What's worse is the pain you caused yourself, the bridges you have burned. All because you thought you were something you're not. Now die slowly.”


 

It was the end of the day. The sun sat in the gold clouds - ticking life away and giving reason to move forward. We both sat in the silence of our own, pondering how we really could be this lucky. The day was amazing, there is nothing better than sharing myself with another who I care deeply for. We really can trust each other to come back to each other when life is hard. Life is beautiful. That's for sure." He thought with comfort.


 

The truth is coming for you. All senses will be primed for the day that will be at hand. There is no running at this point. There is only faith to carry you past the burning river. Be strong, resist the doubt and listen to the truth that is all your salvation. Most of all..(be free*insert later*) *old man sage sorc.*


 

"Say, you wouldn't mind walking with me for the rest of my life..would you?" Asked Ozwald. "WHAT?" Elena said sitting next to him looking at him in question. "I..do know what you mean. I knew you felt this way too for quite some time. I am only yours, you know that."

"Well ya.” There was a pause between them. “Let me tell you something. I see potential in the unredeemable people, I can see if they truly want something they could achieve it. Why? Because everything you want or need in life is worth going for. As long as you don't hurt someone on purpose. But you're the world apart from the unredeemable and your more than worth it. If things got any better I would implode from too much happiness, if that can be a thing. How do I know this? I've lost the pursuit of love in my time. My shadowing demise came from not knowing how to get out of my mind and move forward. Pain is real, it molds us into who we are. My pain becomes love, that is not a crime but an effort in finding the beautiful maiden. You are not a princess of royalty, but you got everything else I desire in you. And I believe in you. Duh.”

Elena never felt happier. "Just making sure. You know how-how it is, I've been hurt many times before as well. I don't need to go into the reasons how or why but to know that I do trust you more than I did before. A never ending stream of ideas and goals come into my mind. The sensation is almost overwhelming at times but is still very desirable. I could just sense that you are the right one for me.”

It was like when we first met on that road, grabbing the mail from our mail box's and saying hi was enough to get my flustered. I don't know about you but I wanted to see what you were about first. I never said I had a handbook on meeting hot young men by the way. But whatever age you were, I still saw my future.” She remained there, awaiting the next big step in her life to happen with them.

"You got it right. Things are finally clicking now. I am here for you. In every way possible. I know the things of the past hurt still, but I promise I am made of the right material." Ozwald said.

Both Ozwald and Elena embrace one another. There was a silence between them only they could understand. Both of their worlds made a deal made out of pure starlight at that moment. As if the heavens oversaw the paper made out of the finest star, signed with truth and love. The moment ensues with laughter and contempt. It's near sunset.

"We should be shooting our rumps home. I'm glad we got to have this day together. Maybe we can do something different next time, eh?" Elena had a curious smile on her face. "Forever and always. I'm super pooped, I'll drive us back." Ozwald said.

It was dawn outside for another hour or so by the time they got back home. Both of them started to relax on the couch. It was a great big couch. You could have 10 people on the couch you thought. They both laid there watching something of amusement on the T.V.


 

"I'm gonna go get us some popcorn and wine, Friday night and feeling epic," Ozwald said.

"Gross, popcorn, and wine together? You gotta be out of your mind man.” Elena jokingly demanded. Popcorn and chocolate! Now we got a match made in heaven." She giggled as she was glomped by her man. They kissed and held a gaze fo some time.

"Okay, I'll see ya soon. I promise to be back on time." He sticks out his tongue with one eye closed in amusement. "Troll. Begone with ye!" She retorted. They hugged and kissed and then departed.
