The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 6After I finally stopped falling, I realized that I was trapped. The floor had collapsed and its remains were scattered around. Two other humans had fallen with me, the redheaded and Bruce, and both were hurt. When checking myself for any injuries, I found some bruises and a few cuts but otherwise I was fine.
“Bruce you need to stay with me. Try to relax.”
I turned to the redheaded and she was trying to talk to Bruce in a tone that was similar to the one used to calm raging animals. I didn’t know why it was used on Bruce but my unasked question had its answer with what happened next.
Bruce had snapped at her in a more guttural voice and started to cry out in pain. Suddenly, he started getting bigger and greener in mere seconds. The more aggressive energy that I had sensed before was now pulsing and expanding until it was the more dominant one. The result was a Bruce that was enormous, with bulging muscles and green. Did I mention that he looked pissed as hell?
The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 5After keeping a straight path to the north, we sensed the energy coming from the east side of the country. But when we were nearby, the energy seemed to waver and it was suddenly gone. I groaned; it was capable of teleporting. We were not able of doing it ourselves so it was going to be an annoyance during our search
Titian wanted to investigate the surroundings of its previous location, so we stayed in a ‘motel’ for the night. After the human gave me the key to our room, the metal box behind him caught my attention. Titian kept on insisting that it was called ‘Teevee’ but I thought it sounded ridiculous. The device was showing images of what looked like a collapsed platform and I was curious.
The human barely glanced back to the box and seemed bored. “Just another government building bombed by terrorists or something.”
I frowned. It seemed oddly convenient and I was suspicious because it happened around the same t
The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 4I was walking home from the music shop. Lately, I was spending a lot of time in there. I finally knew that the sound that the came from the guitar was called music. My guitar lessons with Amber were something I looked forward to every week. After she noticed that I got annoyed if she over explained the subject to me, she quickly caught on how I learned better. She would play it to me, correct any mistakes I made on the first few times and let me practice until I knew it back and forth. Having thirteen minds running at the same time proved very useful in times like this. I didn’t want to make her suspicious so I restrained my speed and strength when playing, but she was still very impressed with my progress and even suggested on me buying a guitar.
It was actually a great idea, and I found a great guitar. It was a beautiful classical acoustic guitar, bathed in warm tones that started with yellow near the sound hole and extended until it was red on the edges. The neck was thin sinc
The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 3So, in all my time living in the World of Technology, I have learned a few things. Actually not a few, but a lot of things; enough to make a list of them:
Things Not to Do in Front of Humans
• Kill animals
• Kill humans
• Eat with your hands
• Use any type of weapons, even if some come too close (there’s apparently no sense of personal space here)
• Get naked
• Break walls or windows
• Check if you can eat something that smells really good (some actually taste so bad, no wonder they are very skinny)
• Take what you want or need from them
• Talk to the humans that appear sporadically in boxes
Some of the things in there caused them to scream or look at me weirdly. I had to erase more than once their memories for safety issues.
Titian and I used an abandoned building near a town to live in. We tried observing how humans acted so to adapt to their customs.
The first thing we quickly realized was that we needed to learn their lang
The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 2I didn’t know if it was really good news or incredibly bad ones. This Realm was a complete change from what I was used to. First of all, the sky was new. Instead of being the usual pink palette like the one in Ethereal, this one had such a constant variation of colors. In the short time since we arrived, the sky had been deep blue, light blue, pink, orange, yellow and bright blue. Currently, it stayed in the latter but there was a heat that had been absent when it was dark. Plus, a bright light seemed to come from a fixed point and was blinding if looked directly at.
This bright light allowed me to scan my surroundings better. Apparently, this world was not only multicolor, but its textures were different too. The trees were rough, the ground was soft, the air had a more spacious feeling…
Titian was currently scanning if there were any other beings surrounding us. After I told him all about my encounter with the humans, he felt the need to check if there were more in the ar
The Gorgon and the Dragon Prologue AvengersXChzoWarning: Swearing, gore and demons. This applies to all future chapters.
Running, the sole activity I seemed to be doing lately. If I had to be completely honest, I didn’t hate it. The feeling of adrenaline rushing through your veins and the freedom you felt of going wherever you wanted could only be compared to flying. Only flying was more awesome that running would ever be.
The sound of my chaser catching up with me was enough to get me focused to what was happening now. I looked back and the Engineer that I tried to shake off was still chasing me. I cursed my stupidity for the hundredth time today. Why on all nine circles of hell had I gone too far?
For starters, I’m a demon. I currently reside in the Ethereal Realm, home to more of my own species than any other that walked this ‘planet’ and is now ruled by the pain elemental Chzo. Well if you can call it ruling when his whole body made up the dimension. Life here was… difficult, to say the least. It wo
