Long after the Pandorians had stolen the Godling back, a shadow crawled from the hole. It was weak, barely visible but its purpose wasn’t to be seen. Its purpose was to infect.

It was going to go to the king but the hole in his heart was bothersome. It would require power to heal and it wasn’t wasting any drop of that. Instead it found itself sliding over the woman. She lay in a tatted red dress, her hair in bloody ringlets around her face.

Beautiful, it thought.

It crawled into her ear, slipping past flesh and bone until it seated itself securely in her brain. There it began to whisper.

I can only be free if he dies.

The son of God, Witch, and Human.

My vessel.

He is the key, bring him to me and toss his body into the pit.

I will grant you your deepest desire.

On its last words the woman’s eyes opened.

A wicked smile stretching across her lips.
