Total Desolation Part 38

“Oh my god! You’re alive!”
“Well technically we’re dead....” Waterfall Bomb stated.
I couldn’t help myself, I ran up and hugged Bomb, Raven, and Midnight. They hugged me back.
“I’m glad you’re ok.” Raven said as he planted a kiss on the top of my head. I hugged him. “Me too.”
“What happened after I died?” Midnight asked me, she had probably filled the rest in on what she saw as she died.
“Well, I charged into the room Korse was in and there was a blood battle.”
“Did you kill him?” Bomb asked me.
“Yes. Only thing was he used his last bit of energy to stab me in the jugular and I died.”
Bomb nodded, she wasn’t very enthusiastic but I couldn’t really blame her, I had killed her and ripped out her trachea.
“I’m sorry.” I said, looking into Bomb’s eyes. “I had never meant to murder you. I thought you were Korse, the spell was consuming me.”
Bomb nodded and I hugged her. “I’m sorry.” A tear started to well in my eye and I blinked it away, I wouldn’t cry.
“What are you wearing!?” Bomb exclaimed as she felt the fabric of my shirt.
I pulled back and looked down at my clothes. “Oh, the mirror told me what to wear, I had to meet Astrid. Not my choice of clothes but what ya gonna do? I was meeting the almighty Goddess after all.”
Bomb looked at me like I was psycho and I laughed, she didn’t blame me for her death. If anything she was probably glad that I was the one to kill her and not one of Korse’s gooneys. Besides if she didn’t die she would’ve been left on her own without anyone and become suicidal except she wouldn’t have been able to bring herself to do anything about it.
Bomb started laughing because I had gotten myself into a laughing fit and couldn’t stop which ended in us all laughing at nothingness.
Finally I got my laughing back under control. “Are the other’s ok?”
“They’re fine, we decided we would find you. I was going to come alone but figured I’d bring your best friend for the last 9 years of your life, and Raven refused to let us go unless he came along. We had to go thru a lot to be allowed in this place. What is it?” Midnight responded.
“The palace of The Prophet.”
“The what?” Raven asked.
“Apparently since my birth I’ve been The Prophet of The Black Parade, and now I have to take down Aagneya, alone.” I put extra emphasis on the word alone.
“You’re weird.” Bomb commented and I stuck my tongue out at her in response. I smiled, I just couldn’t be so relieved that everyone was ok.
“How are you supposed to do that?” Midnight asked, curious.
“I don’t know, I’m supposed to figure that out. That’s why I’m in the library, I want to read up on my history of both my life and my death, figure out my strengths, and weaknesses.”
“Do you always have to do such dangerous things?” Raven questioned.
“That’s like asking if a bobcat has to kill for food. Considering it’s carnivore yes it does. Considering I’m a source of good will and determination and I crave action and adventure, yes I have to do this. It’s all I need to do to complete my life goal. Take down the evil of life and take down the evil of death.”
“Well technically isn’t it now your death goal now?” Bomb commented.
“Shut up.”
I started wondering toward a bookcase at random, choosing the first book I saw. It was an old book with a hard cover black binding. I opened it up to a random page and skimmed it. I was surprised to see a picture of me, it the moment that I was killing my best friend, Waterfall Bomb. It was saying that I was enchanted and hallucinating and thought that she was Korse. I slammed the book closed and slid it back into place. I didn’t want to see that, I was in a blood frenzy and killed my best friend, it wasn’t something I was proud of and I didn’t want to see it again.
Of course with my mind I began wondering what was going on back in the BLI/nd base. Korse was killed, so the other killjoys should be able to fix this whole BLI/nd issue. I had to think what happened with our bodies. Would the Exterminators get rid of the bodies before the killjoys got to taking care of them, or would they let them stay there? When the killjoys got there what would they think happened? Would they praise my soul? Would they give my friends the proper burials they deserved? I hoped so. My friends deserved the world.
I let out a sigh and returned to my three closest family members.
“So where are you guys staying?”
“Well we were taken in by a family and we’re staying underground to ‘stay away from the dark gods of evil’”
I looked at Bomb with a look that said ‘really!?’ She nodded in turn.
“Why don’t you guys stay here? I could use the company and I think I might die if you guys die again because of me.”
“Can we even die in death?” Raven asked.
I shrugged. “Anything can happen.”
“I’ll stay.” Midnight commented, “I’m not too fond of living underground.”
I laughed, she was a lot like me, I had forgotten that, and missed it.
“I’m staying, I’m not leaving you again.” Raven noted.
“You’ll kill yourself without me, so I’m staying.” Bomb said, and I smiled.
“What about the others?” I asked.
“They’ll be fine. I told them we might not be back for quite some time cause we were coming to find you and didn’t even know where to begin. I left V in charge.” Midnight stated.
“Speaking of being left in charge, why was Midnight left in charge and not me, your best friend that’s been with you since before Better Living and then all those years after?” Bomb complained.
“Cause Midnight’s my sister and I know that she’d take care of all of you in the way that did.”
“You’re a horrible friend.”
I shrugged, “It happens.”
“Why did ever decide to be friends with you?”
“I thought we already established that answer a long time ago?”
“Well I don’t remember the answer.”
“Me neither.”
“Does it really matter? Either way you two are best friends and practically inseparable.” Raven commented, clearing annoyed with our babbling.
Finally after all our babbling nonsense about our lives and deaths now too I gave them all rooms and we went to bed.
