Once more centered, the little priestess straightened up, swapping out the bloodied white robes for her black robes once again. She stood in the circle stained crimson with the life's blood of 5. Her fingers snapped, and the other six chambers began to creak and groan, much has the last had. This time, no screaming may be heard, but blood and other liquids flow from the metal cages, filling the rest of the sigil on the ground. Once surrounded by the flowing ruby liquid, Aska looks down, and makes absolutely sure that the entire sigil is well blooded.

Once satisfied, she stands straight, and turns each direction one at a time, facing an object slowly. She begins with Space, the object a hollowed urn etched in story. Unimportant was the tale, just that this object had been held as favored by the Lord of Space himself. She began a soft chant, her palms together. One of those hands raised, and violet eyes flashed open to silver in the moonlight as a jolt of lightning lanced through the sky and struck the urn, shattering the thing to pieces. "Where Space once was, so might it be restored to my lord." Spoke the priestess softly.

Next in line was Matter, and he himself had prized water above all else, so on the pedestal sat a small vial of water. Such a simple thing by the looks of it, but the properties of the water inside were known to be sacred, and dangerous to most anything of the darkness. Which was why it was so fitting to call upon the dark fire. She heated the vial until even that water could do nothing but evaporate. And then she heated it further, the black flames reflected in her eyes eerily. The vial itself shattered in the heat. "Matter will have hold no longer, a chain broken."

The artifact for Time was by far more elaborate, a beautiful hourglass that the sand never ceased to flow inside of. The symbol of time's constant passage. Because this had been the lord that stood so very staunchly against her own, she would need aid from another side to destroy the thing. So came the artifact for Light. Hers was simple, yet breathtaking. A many faceted and clear jewel that reflected any light source into prisms of color. The tiny priestess used this as an amplifier, the natural energy and vibration of the stone perfect for the job. Nearly all of her power funneled through the gem, the energy jumping straight from jewel to hourglass. Dark light and white light coalesced into one stream and it frissioned like electricity over the glass. At nearly the same time, both stone and hourglass erupted in a flash, leaving behind nothing but shattered remnants.

The fifth pedestal remained empty, purposefully so. Each object had locked him away, his taken from him, but no magick needed be cast upon it. That same thing had been returned to him. It now sat on his hand as he waited in the shadows. Here, the priestess waited, gathering her wits about her to weave another spell.

"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."
