A not often seen smile crossed the older woman's face, and she came closer to the little dragon. Her slender arm wrapped around the girl's shoulders, and in rare affection, hugged the girl. "Yes, you will meet him. He is very eager to, in fact. He knows that you are little sister to his beloved priestess. It makes him curious to see who might have been chosen to walk alongside me so closely. This is why you are here right now. To watch him rise again and walk the Earth. Not many will witness this. You are very unique, and I do not think another will compare. So, come. Join your older sister, trust in me. I will never hurt you or steer you to something that is not good for you. You are my little sister." Her hand ruffled the hair of the younger girl as she began leading her to the altar.

"Now, each of them must pay for their sins, but there is something that you might do for me. You sing beautifully, and I have been teaching you to speak a very important language. Do you remember your Latin?" Aska asked as she looked at Mura. Once given a nod, the priestess began to lead the teen through her necessary script. "Umbra et inane, tenebris et mortis. Fractis catenis posuit tenebris Deum liberum." She repeated the phrase, honey voice lifting and lilting in just such the way that the words needed to be chanted. She acted as guide to her protégée's tone and words, as any geisha might when her sister sings.

Once Mura was chanting properly and steadied, Aska moved once again down the line. She saved two for the last, for entirely opposing reasons. One, an older gentlemen, stood straight and proud as she opened the door.  Cage though it had been, there were no sharp implements that might have cut his skin, no spikes and other cruelties. The symbol of this respect comes full circle as Aska bows slightly to the man, In an educated, though quiet voice, he addresses the priestess before him. "My lady wrote that you would come, that you would free the Dark Lord. And when you did, I was supposed to ensure that it would happen, and give to you the key to the door. My lady went along with the lords only enough to ensure that she would know all of the steps required. They trusted her enough that they allowed her to stow away the key to his prison where she will it.

She did, in the last place any of the lords could or would look. In a heart of shadow. The Dark Lord will be able to call the key to him as you break the wards further. That shadowed heart will be able to unlock the door."
He bowed once more to the white clad woman. "Now, be once more the angel of our death, and let my blood allow his passage back. The lady had missed him. She was never again the same when they took him away." The last individual in his cage began screaming in a hoarse and outraged voice. "Your lady and you, traitorous dogs, both! They trusted you, you swine. You've damned this world!" Neither priestess nor honored guest acknowledged the howled words of the prisoner. Aska bowed once more before her blade found the neck of the man. This time, to honor the thing he and his lady had done, the death is quickened and painless. But the last death would not be, in the least.
Name: Aska

"I wished on the seven sisters. Bring to me wisdom of age. All that's locked within the book of secrets. I longed for the knowledge of the sage...So the sisters smiled to themselves, and they whispered as they shown. And it was from that very instant, I knew I would never be alone."

"It's true. We're all a little insane. But it's so clear, now that I am unchained. Fear is only in our minds, taking over all the time...You poor, sweet, innocent thing, dry your eyes, and testify. You know you live to break me. Don't deny, sweet sacrifice."

"You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be. Oh, so many ways for me to show you how your savior has abandoned you...Still you pray, never stray, never taste of the fruit, and you never thought to question why. It's not like you killed someone. Not like you drove a hateful spear into his side. Praise the one who left you broken down and paralyzed. He did it all for you."

"When you scream, it sounds like a lullaby. When you beg, I get all gooey inside. Tonight, I take your eyes, mind and tongue to spread the word and watch your kingdom come... Once upon a time, I ripped the wings from my spine. But when I hide inside your eyes, I still pretend that I can fly. Tell me every secret, so you can fall in love, then fall to pieces. I need new voices in my head..I need new lovers in my bed to feed my secret appetites. I need your scent all over me. I need to taste this tragedy. I need to know with certainty that the nectar was worth the squeeze. It's just the way that we're deceived. It's the blame that stains us. This, this sweetest disease is so contagious."
