When the lock was finally made bare to the eye, so too were ropes of golden chain. In each link sat magicks that had interwoven and twined together in one very foreign strand. A very old and well schooled mage could make out the words and pieces of this spellcraft, but most others couldn't even come near to calculating such a thing. Matter, Time and Space had come together and used their own powers intertwined to see this done. Once undone, the lock shattered, and the chains began to fall away, the magick itself unweaving and winging unfettered into the night. It didn't make it far, certainly not out of the circle. A word, snarled and shouted to the bare night sky from the priestess, those magicks were engulfed in utter abyss and pulled inside the pool of shadow.

The winds blew over the key wielder, the dragon and the priestess, reaching a howling peak. Slowly, the blood that had outlined the ancient design carved into the stone began to stir. With that stirring, so came the deep and notable rumbling of the Earth beneath their feet. Aska remained absolutely relaxed and still, and that calm was extended to Mura. It would be a test to see if the key wielder would be able to staunch his impulse to run and instead, stick around. The blood surged through the design, but it rapidly became noticeable that said blood was beginning to disappear somewhere. Sharp eyes might be able to tell that it was disappearing into that writhing bit of shadow that had been unlocked, but only if they were very sharp and attentive.

Meanwhile, the portal had become reconnected, led out of it's forced isolation. The abyssal shadows reached out as if they had formed into a giant hand, but it was fairly harmless as the only individual standing nearby was, in fact, the priestess, and she knew well that those shadows wouldn't harm her in the least. In the distance, as the rumbling intensified, a resounding crack echoed through the entire city and outward. Aska spoke in quiet Latin to her protégée. "Kneel, little sister. My lord comes." Those changing eyes looked back at the key wielder, if he was still there, moving to English once more. "You would be wise to kneel, wielder. My lord will come, and you have not earned the right to stand in his presence. Risk your head, otherwise." Her attention turned itself back to the depths of that newly reformed passage. Thunder rumbled overhead, and it made the dark oppressive, like a heavy mantle carried. Time seemed to crawl.

"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."
