"Mom Mom ! Where are you?" You say as you search the burning house.
"M-Marilla" You hear a faint voice. You head towards the voice seeing your mom half buried by fallen debris.
"Mom!" You cry hurridly pulling off small pieces of wood. She stops your hands smiling at you
"Marilla live for me" She says coughing violently "I don't have much time left but I want you to live. Experience life and smile. You were put on this world for a reason...Find it"
You hear a creak and back up quickly crying
You hear a creak and back up quickly crying. She looks up at you for the last time as the house collapses before your eyes.
You cry and cry until black dots appear in your vision
Every since that day you have strengthened your fire powers blocking others out and striving to rule. You were cold and heartless a fire assassin ho was always on the hunt. Known as "Merciless Fire Goddess" your powers were admired and feared everywhere.
As of this moment you were on a mission to kill a feudal lord from a foreign country. The country would run into chaos and would be taken over by the country who hired you.
You approached the castle slowly scoping out the nearest windows. I jump in the nearest one relaxing once seeing it is empty. I peer out counting how many guards there were. I ready my fireballs silently shooting them.
Where is the other one. Whoosh! I duck turning around to see a sorcerer behind me readying another orb. I quickly shoot a fireball. Eyes watering at the smell of burning flesh.
"What is all of this commotion" The emperor says. Turning around his face goes white and he runs in his room shouting "Guards"
I sigh I was hoping this would be an easy mission.
I crack my neck to the side as the guards slowly approach me. I start chanting a spell.
Oh fire goddess within me let your holy fire burn from within me as I take care of my enemies. I hope you will assist me on my journey and burn down anyone in my path. No magic or weapon of malice shall reach me in your time of duty. I take my oath as your sole body may I be a great tool for you....
My body lights up as i am taking over. I smile victoriously knowing that in this stage no mere “guard” could defeat me.
For I was the great Roman fire goddess “Caia Caecilia”.....
“You dare try to fight me mortals” Caia Caecilia voice thunders in the room. The guards step back skittle unsure of what to do. Any normal person would if the saw a floating woman surrounded by fire wearing skimpy clothes and a fire crown..
“Finish her off!!!” The emperor screams
Encouraged the guards charge forwards throwing spears and shooting arrows at Caia Caecilia.
Caia Caecilia laughs as the weapons burn upon impact “I warned you” She says throwing the weapons back at the guards but the weapons were on fire.
5 min later all the guards are dead and Caia Caecilia floats to the ground morphing back into the original form.
I grin walking speedy to the emperor's room. I see him hiding in a corner. Immediately he start begging for his life. Used to this I comfort him then stab him in the neck leaving a red flame where I killed him.
"Yaaawn" I say I had built a temporary home and now I was heading to a village. I still needed to clean up from my last mission.
I entered the village's woods. I had a mission to do there.As soon as I do traps are thrown on me I hear men yelling orders.
"How dare they?! How dare they even try to trap and imprison me, knowing the reach of my fire."
If it is not them I who burn, they certainly will.
And just to let them know, I had to kill all of them. Originally my mission didn't say kill everybody but I was hungry for death. To smell the burning flesh and hear people scream and point at me. Yes, recognition. The one thing you don't get when you constantly praise and give thanks to your gods when no one does the same.
My hands were scraped raw. Setting those weapons in fire must've done something.
My legs instantly start moving, as if a flame had been lighted in them. I fight the urge to run and bow down to give thanks to my God.
Caia Caecilia, here are the ashes of the burnt enemy in which I will spread across the land in your honor. With great power you condemn the wicked and reward the loyal. Let your eternal flame blow throughout me.
I stay kneeled for some time. The earth's heartbeat is very distinct from footsteps, and the earth in trembling in my presence.
The trees sway as if to mock me.
"Can't burn us or you'll burn everything, haha!"
But this experience is still beautiful.
The sky lets down its warmth to congratulate me and I use it to heal my body.
It feels too good to be true. I must get on a move.
"Wait!" A male voice calls. I shouldn't wait for anybody, who does he think I am.
"What mortal?" I say coldly. I would like to highlight his weaknesses if he wishes to fight against me.
"For your beautiful hands" he says, handing me a quite heavy jug of water.
"Please, you don't need to-"
"To eat" he hands me a bunch of grapes.
"Farewell" now he leaves.
Why was he stalking me!
Does he know who I really am?
Why didn't he tremble like to earth to be childish like the trees? Why didn't he praise like the sky and carry like the breeze?
Why didn't he cower in fear when he first saw me?
I should've burned him to a crisp, but recognition is a gift that I so desperately need right now.
The others will surely cower when they hear my name.
They will know of my true power when I destroy their village and seize the boy. Who tried to seem as powerful as me.
Fear is a new weapon that I must master using.
