Part 20: Sam's Downfall

 --

      Bottles of liquor and lager surround a man laying down in the middle of an open field surrounded by the forest treeline, tears running down his face as he stares at the night sky. He stands up and screams into the sky above, "Fuck you, all of you gods up there! Is this the entertainment the gods seek. My wife was not part of this agreement, I made a contract to make sure that my family will not be collateral damage. I swear that I will find a way to defeat you all, all you stupid fucking gods! I will no longer be your pawn in this game, since you took my wife, I no longer have interest in your games with us mortals." Sam lights the forest on fire, like a flamethrower burning the kindling on the forest floor. "Malthus and Valcia both are responsible for the death of my wife. Wallace said that Arkana is being disciplined for the contract we made. I am grateful that he is not responsible for breaking the deal. I wish I could get to Lila's realm and figure out how to fix everything." A thunderstorm fills the sky as rain begins to fall, raindrops the size of golf balls puts out the fire, "Fucking hell, I think I just have the worst luck. I mean, I get falsely accused by my own kingdom. I get chased away from my house. I then get attacked by guards at the second home, forcing my family and I to leave another village. Then I get ambushed by another kingdom's guards. I lost my love, and now I can't even take it out on the forest that reminds me of my passion as a hunter! I just want to die here in this forest! Can you at least give me this!" The storm passes as Sam is beating his head on the trunk of a tree, he feels a hand touch his shoulder. Sam turns around, staring into the eyes of a tan skinned and very beautiful woman, she says to him, "Samuel Belthor, I am Lavaius. The goddess of fertility, romance,  and compassion. I am not thrilled about what happened to your wife, and what happened to Arkana. I want you to free him and rescue your wife from the realms of the dead. You two can reunite if you survive the layers of Heaven and Hell. Valcia and Mathus split up her soul in order to make it more difficult for you to rescue her. They have a grasp on your personality, and deemed it necessary. They fear you more than any other mortal." Sam places his hand on his head as blood runs down his face, "Why would any of the gods fear me? I am not as powerful as them nor do I have truly godly powers like them?" She replies, "It's because you are filled with love and determination to protect your family. I want to grant you a gift that will put you on par or beyond the powers of them. You need to end this madness between my three brothers. If you destroy their physical vessels, they will be reborn again after three days have passed by. An ability I have can drain the abilities, all abilities not restricted to absorbing mana, of anything that you touch. My realm is meant for relaxation and euphoria. Any form or being, uses or has animosity will lose their combative powers. You will be able to make them as if they were mortals. You have to touch them, even if you use aggressive tactics, as long as you made direct contact with their body parts. I drained your negetavite feelings to calm you down enough to be able to communicate with you, I never wanted to resort to this, but their demented games with the mortals is nauseating." Lavaius fades away from the mortal realm.

      Sam wanders to his castle, hugs his children as they ask, "Daddy, where did mother go?" He replies, "She is conducting her royal duties of diplomacy with other nations. It will be a month or so before she comes home. I miss her already and feel like chasing her down for our wedding anniversary is coming up. I don't want her to be working during our special day." The children agree and head upstairs to their respective bedrooms. Six royal guards escort a beautiful woman. Sam noticed that she is beaten up, bleeding and barely moving, "Lila? Why is she so badly wounded? Quickly get her to the infirmary!" A few days passed by as Lila recovered from her wounds. Sam asks her, "What happened to you? She replies, "Malthus sent his underlings to stop me from making contact with you. I defeated all of them before they could destroy my physical vessel and force me to be revived in the wellsprings. I told you that I am the most powerful being in my realm. They weren't on the same level as Chasono." Sam smiles, "It seems like you have made a full recovery. How would you like to join me on my quest of vengeance to rescue my wife from both of their realms. Lavaius gave me her blessing. I will drain their powers away and teach them how it feels to be destroyed. They took my wife, I will take their physical vessels, giving them more to fear of me!" Lila replies, "First let's save Arkana. That ability could destroy the curse bestowed upon Lord Arkana. He is trapped in a cycle of misery and death. His powers have been revoked, and his strength diminished by the gods of the omniverse." They both fade away from the mortal realm as the guards bow before their evanescent forms.
