ooc;; for karemin


The little witch had separated from her group for once, pulling self away from her captives and her keepers. Something in her chest was bubbling, an insistent demand and pull that she neither understood more questioned. They had traveled together closer to the mountains but as they approached she had been drawn to the tallest mountain, bidding her companions fair well for a time. Whatever this was it was something that had to be done alone. Long limbs would carry her silently up the mountains, so high that she was touching the clouds and then suddenly she was above them. The air was thinner here but it still managed to be warm. Flowers blossomed for summer atop a cushion of moss and grass. It felt luxurious beneath her paws after so long trekking up the mountain. Slowly she would come to stand in the middle of then mountain top, head tipping back and upturning head to the sky. A soft sigh would drift soundlessly from her lips as she let out a low frequency. At the same time her mind would begin reciting a prayer to Karmine that her mother had taught her as a child. Somehow it all felt right...

<font style="text-transform: uppercase; letter-spacing: 7px;">goddess of the earth</font><div style="border-top: 1px solid; border-bottom: 1px solid; margin-top: 2%; margin-bottom: 2%; padding-top: 2%; padding-bottom: 2%;">

She watched over her children diligently, favoring those that were as a chaotic as herself. She watched silently as empires rose and fell as fate would have it. Though she felt disappointment only briefly. Many came to the mountain top, some to just waste idle time and others hoping to speak to their creator. Today was no different, she watched as the blind nymph climbed diligently until she reached the very top of the mountain she had helped create. A soundless echo would leave dark jaws, requesting her presence. Not many sought her out, for many knew the tails that surrounded the vindictive Goddess. A slow smile curled chocolate lips as she left her unseen perch and approached.

<P>
Flowers and grass sprouted from the dull mountain with each step she took, tails dragged, flowers dropping from vines that had become one with her living giving body. <font style="font: bold 15px georgia; font-variant: small-caps; letter-spacing: 1px; color: #8c8dac; text-shadow: 0 0 5px #7f819d;">"My dear, you called."</font> She approached without hesitation, seeking to leave only a foot between them. The tree that sprouted from her shoulders held brightly colored flowers and vivid green leaves, all that came with spring, she had watch it all unfold. Winter departed and opened the door for spring to invade the world below her, but she was beginning to feel as though it was too pretty, to peaceful. Perhaps she should do something about that...
<P>
As she stood before the tiny woman, vines crawled up her legs, grass spreading so rapidly it was unreal, flowers blooming in its wake. Triangular ears tipped forward, verdant eyes settling on the blind womans face. She did not know what brought the mute here today, which made her curious, but she was also interested to know more about this woman. All she had been able to do was watch from a distance for so long, she missed walking amongst her subjects and interacting regularly with them, but they had learned the hard way just how greedy the mortals could become.

It was a shame that in her blindness she could not behold the magnificence of the goddess as she came to rest before her. But the sounds and smells alone were awe inspiring. She smelt of summer, of fresh grass in the morning after a midnight rain. She smelt of life... She was the giver and the taker and though Erzsebet knew that all gods were equal it was Karemin that was the most breathtaking to the petite woman. Her mother had spoken of the goddess's beauty through out her childhood, it was heart breaking that only now the woman would be able to meet the goddess in the flesh. Her words were soft, they seemed to echo from everywhere, including inside her mind and slowly one forelimb would coil into her body, opposite forelimb sliding forward into a bow until her forehead would press into the earth. Head would tip slightly, neck fully exposed to her creator. <b>"My lady..."</b> How long had it been since she had spoken? Not since Aaron had died... <b>"You honour me with your presence, I am truly sorry I did not search for you before my vision failed me. Your beauty has been spoken of by my mother since my birth..."</b> Her words were breathy and soft, a voice unused and mistreated. Slowly she would lift herself into a standing position though her head would remain lowered with head tilted, black gaze trained on the ground. <b>"I have come to ask a boon of you my lady, I have come on a quest for power and I am willing to do anything you ask of me if you are willing to grant it."</b> She would say, not wanting to keep the goddess here for longer then she had to.

She would watch as the woman before her bent into a bow, her soft and raspy voice filling the void. A faint smile curled her lips at the apology, though it pleased her that parents were teaching their children of their creators. Without so much as a thought, an invisible hand reached out to brush across unseeing eyes, giving her the ability to see, if only briefly. She did not seek to startle the woman with sudden vision, so she would slowly pull back the curtains that left her sightless until there was clarity. <font style="font: bold 15px georgia; font-variant: small-caps; letter-spacing: 1px; color: #8c8dac; text-shadow: 0 0 5px #7f819d;">“It will not last.”</font> She murmured, for this was only a brief blessing, a small kindness to reward a faithful follower. As the woman rose once more, she spoke of her purpose here. She sought power and was willing to do anything. Haunches reclined towards the earth, thick grass cushioning her seat.
<P>
<font style="font: bold 15px georgia; font-variant: small-caps; letter-spacing: 1px; color: #8c8dac; text-shadow: 0 0 5px #7f819d;">“What power do you seek?”</font> Ears trained on the witch, waiting intently for her answer before deciding whether or not to aid her. But she was already coming up with a quest to send her on, one that would be challenging, but so greatly rewarding to watch. Heavy tails stretched behind her, life sprouting from all the places in which her body touched the mountain side. Her interest was high, though such a thing was fickle and easily swayed, however she did not expect this one to upset her. Bright eyes of emerald trained on ebony features.

It was as if the curtains were rising from her eyes, at first everything was blurry and for a moment she was simply confused. But then words would echo around her once more and everything would slowly become more clear. She could <i>see</i>. Shoulders would slump in defeat as she stared wide eyed at the beauty before her. <b>"A moment is all I need. A moment to see your beauty and then I will be content in my world of darkness..."</b> She would whisper as she stared in absolute awe of the woman before her. Her mother had been close, so close in her description and yet... She could have been spot on and Erzsebet would have still been unable to anything but stare for a time. After a moment the goddess would speak again, asking what she sought and Erzs would slowly turn her eyes downwards. <b>"I wish to advance my magic, to be able to weird my powers with more efficiency..."</b> She would murmur, since the goddess could hear thoughts all throughout her lands Ezzy had no worries about speaking softly.

The mortal before her slumped with what could only be defeat as her gaze focused and she could obviously see again. Dark wide eyes stared, soaking in her appearance with new sight, pulling a faint giggle from chocolate lips. The mortal was grateful, so much so that she was willing to be plunged back into darkness afterwards. <font style="font: bold 15px georgia; font-variant: small-caps; letter-spacing: 1px; color: #8c8dac; text-shadow: 0 0 5px #7f819d;">“You should be able to make it back down the mountain before you are blind once more.”</font> It was effortless to extend the brush of her magic and aid one so willing to follow despite her twisted tendencies. But ebony gaze would drop as she spoke, wishing to increase her power. Lyrics were a soft murmur, nearly inaudible, but her touch extended across everything, she could hear anything and everything within vindico.
<P>
For a moment she simply stared, pondering whether or not to accept. <font style="font: bold 15px georgia; font-variant: small-caps; letter-spacing: 1px; color: #8c8dac; text-shadow: 0 0 5px #7f819d;">“You powers are vast and you are quite skilled already. You test my creations with the poisons you wield.”</font> She spoke with a smirk, amusement dancing briefly across her features. <font style="font: bold 15px georgia; font-variant: small-caps; letter-spacing: 1px; color: #8c8dac; text-shadow: 0 0 5px #7f819d;">“But I will grant you what you wish.”</font> She mused, <font style="font: bold 15px georgia; font-variant: small-caps; letter-spacing: 1px; color: #8c8dac; text-shadow: 0 0 5px #7f819d;">“For a price.”</font> A wicked giggle followed her words, though she had faith that this one would be successful.
<P>
<font style="font: bold 15px georgia; font-variant: small-caps; letter-spacing: 1px; color: #8c8dac; text-shadow: 0 0 5px #7f819d;">“Bring me the horn of a unicorn and the eye of a tunneler.”</font> She spoke, humor leaving her features as she met the mortals gaze evenly. Her quests were never easy, before she handed out gifts she wanted to ensure that the mortal was worthy of such a blessing. This would be life threatening no doubt, the creatures she wanted pieces of had notorious attitudes. <font style="font: bold 15px georgia; font-variant: small-caps; letter-spacing: 1px; color: #8c8dac; text-shadow: 0 0 5px #7f819d;">“You have until the end of winter, any later and I'll strip you voice and telepathy.”</font> She didn't even so much as blink as she promised to rip away the only forms of communication away from her loyal follower. There was a tip of her crown as she silently wondered if the woman would accept or run.
