Like the artist she had once been, her pale eyes took in the surroundings. They decayed further and further. There wasn't a lot of help for it, but the decrepit surroundings still disgusted her. The emotion pointed at the reasons for this once majestic room's demise and disrepair. And the reasons for the apparent impatience of the lord that sat in front of her.

She swept a curtsy, making the movement natural and smooth. She'd been alive since the time such gestures had been apart of an education, even in peasantry. "I have searched far, delved deep into secrets unfit for the eyes of all but precious few. And the endeavor has proven fruitful, my lord. Your words and aid proved both infallible and and incomparable." She inclined her head, the nape of her neck exposed. She came before him as priestess, not warrior.

"The artifacts of each of your siblings have been gathered. The ritual necessary is created, and awaiting the performance upon the night that I have determined is optimal. The eleventh hour of the solstice. The longest night." She took a deep breath, regretting the action once done, the scent of the decay invading her nose.

The woman knelt on her knees elegantly, sitting absolutely straight. Wrapped in midnight silk, the small object that had been retrieved was cradled in her hands. "My diligence has been rewarded. The final and most precious of objects has been retrieved, that it might please you to have it returned. My lord might wear it as I would call him forth and part the chains that keep him imprisoned." It hadn't been needed, but Aska was and had always been an overachiever in her service to a deity.

She lifted her eyes, which until now, had been lowered in demure fashion to her hands, and the object in them. She did not look him in the eye, and would not unless invited to do so. That misty lavender gaze looked at a tapestry as she told him softly. "Your time draws very near, my lord. What may I do for you to prepare for your rebirth into this world? I would see to your comfort, if it might please you."
Name: Aska
Age: appears to be in her very early 20's
Gender: Female


"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."
