Part 9: The Champions Of The Gods --

     Servants place plates of food and drinks on a massive table as six of the gods sat at the table. A gorgeous brunette goddess asks, "Arkana, are you going to choose a champion to fight our brothers'?" Arkana smiles, "I chose mine a long time ago. I knew Malthus's intentions from the start. He complains about his position, even though it fits his personality. Malthus is an open book. Speaking of books, my warrior is about to stumble across the first gift I created for'em." The bright yellow eyes of the gods focus with intense intrigue as the image of a man changing the diaper of his newborn baby daughter is projected inside of a crystal ball that is five feet in diameter. A light brown haired goddess asks, "Has anyone else decided to join the bet and picked, or are going to pick a champion too?" Breaking the silence she continues, "I also have a champion. Mine is going to represent the cosmos. They will travel through space, my realm, as my warrior servant, teaching the ways of exploration and navigation to those who may be lost on their travels. They will be a wandering spirit to protect and guide travellers, explorers and wanders. That is if they defeat the others and reign on top." A blonde haired goddess speaks up, "Tilanna, you are going to join our brothers' madness? They are just belittling and using the mortals as pawns. You should not do as they are! This is just wrong, I don't see any justified reason for letting acts of overt aggression to be used on living things!" A dark brown skinned man interrupts, "Lavaius, you should not be involved in this meeting. You are stepping into my territory when you speak of living organisms. Do you want to rule over the waters, and represent the process of life? I don't mind becoming the god of love, and compassion. But you know very well that they are not currently breaking our parents' rules." Lavaius speaks up, "Prethsio, are you saying that I am going to get in the way of everyone else! I think that my job positions that mother and father granted me truly fits my persona, better than Malthus and Valcia. Those two are too similar yet opposites. I wish that they would just focus on what they have in common!" 

   Sam Belthor tucks his newborn daughter in her crib. He kisses her on the forehead and smiles as he walks out of the bedroom. Sam grabs his bow and a sack carrying a bundle of arrows, as he walks out of the door his wife stops him, she kisses him, "Be safe my husband, I fear that we will one day not be able to be safe. Life feels like it has gotten better but still things can fall apart." Sam replies, "My darling wife, everything is going to be alright. I was greeted by one of Arkana's angels. They told me that he wants to talk to me about becoming his champion. He wants to negotiate on a temporary contract between us. The angel ended with saying that I have to open the book to communicate with Arkana himself. I plan on opening it up and serving him. Honey, I will always sacrifice myself for my family." Sam exits his house and rides off towards the wilderness. Sam dismounts his horse, he approaches an altar, sets the mysterious book down on the altar along with his sword, bow and arrows. Sam opens the book, "So you decided to sign my contract? Your family will be untouchable as long as you help me defeat my elder brothers' sibling rivalry. Valcia chose Wallace as his champion to fight Malthus's champion Brett Travosita. They are gambling on who should be the leader of the gods and create the laws of the universe. They both are too similar in personality, yet Valcia is actually the more principled and decorous one than Malthus. Malthus is conniving, bigheaded and insalubrious. He wants to overthrow Valcia so badly that he is willing to grant a psychopath like Brett Travosita  great magical powers and rule over the most technologically advanced society on Loama! So I am a bit worried about the fate of the universe." Sam finished initialing and signing the contract, he  kneels on one knee, bows his head and speaks up, "My lord, I think that we are going to be able to get along very well. I see why you chose me personally to be your royal knight. I only care that you protect my family for an eternity. I will serve you for as long as my family and descendants are healthy, uninjured and protected from all forms of injury and illnesses. They must not even get a sniffle, or cough. No stubbed toes or dying skin!" Arkana starts laughing, "Yes, hilarious, hahahaha, stand up fearless leader and take my hand! I love you more already! You sure do know how to bargain with the gods, luckily our personalities are a match because why would I want to have someone who I can't work with? I need you just as much as you need me. This is our interdependent relationship. I will grant your family and descendants; immortality, eternal health and eternal youth. Now rise, your training begins now."
