Sigh of annoyance. Noheme was starting her days a bit too often with these as of late for many different reasons. The main one being how her powers weren’t growing quite as much as she wanted. Though she did managed to gain control of a little bit of her godly lineage. Still, that was about it. There were many other changes as well, though they did not increase the girl’s power at ll. One of them being the fact that her power grew darker and darker with each day. Originally, her magic was about holding balance over the light and darkness, combining the two to form chaos itself or use them individually to utilize their respective aspects. But now, it looked more like the girl’s darkness consumed the light whole and left nothing at all as a greedy monster with bloated belly. Not that the fox girl really minded it at all. After all, her mind and actions were not affected by it at all. It was merely the nature of her power that was implemented into the mortal vessel that she was using to walk the lands of Earthland, interact with humans. Or perhaps this was how it was meant to be from the very start? After all, her true form… her ‘divine’ form was nothing short of demonic, filled with darkness and vile to the look.
Something she didn’t want anyone to see, even the creatures of her own world. But something like that, it was a fool’s wish. Surely one day, it would all be broken and the goddess would be abandoned as the result, for her nature was not godly at all. But that was the future, something she didn’t have to worry about right now. Present was what she wanted to care about, everything that was around her. And there was a lot. And yet, she didn’t visit Earthland itself in quite a bit. Instead, she was sitting her in her own Astral world. Somehow she wasn’t motivated enough to visit the world of humanity, feeling that she was far too weak for it. Of course that wasn’t the case at all, just a delusion that the girl herself forced into her mind. Something that reached a certain someone, a being that was even grander than Noheme herself. And someone that the moon goddess hated from her very core, yet was forced to love. A man that gave her life and power to form this entire dimension and everything that lived and breathed inside of it. He called himself Lilith, although there was a good chance that was not his real name. He was always there, watching. Always connected to her feelings and actions, observing them all as if her entire life was nothing more than a show to him. A flawless being that could do whatever he wanted, who had power to change the cosmos in a heartbeat. Or did he? His presence was confusing in all aspects, making everyone unsure of themselves and their knowledge of otherworldly things.
But whatever he was, he was here. And he knew what the young girl wanted most of all. He could sense her hunger for power and it made him smile in his own space, one that Noheme could not interact with. Perhaps it was time to finally start moving forward again. Alongside the path of madness, Lilith had his own plans that he wanted to see out until the end. And so, his figure would appear out of nowhere, standing near the girl herself. He appeared as a pretty normal looking humanoid, resembling human in many aspects. In fact, the only thing about him that wasn’t human were his eyes. They looked… different, of golden color that could pierce the darkness itself. ”How are we doing darling? Thinking of how to obtain power again?” She did not answer. She didn’t want to have anything to do with him. Yet, she wasn’t able to look away from him. Her looks were alluring, even though he had simple fancy suit and umbrella that he was using as cane. What did he want truly? That was something the girl needed to figure out if she ever wanted to escape his clutches. But it seemed completely hopeless at the moment, she wasn’t aware of anything. He was simply far too distant and careful, never letting any information slip unless he wanted it to slip. It made the girl nervous, unsure of what to expect from this individual. She only knew that whatever he wanted, it was definitely not good. After all, he was a creature just as twisted as she was. ”What do you want?” Her reply carried no emotions and sounded completely hollow. Not that it would bother the man who only smiled back at her.
”How cold. And here I was worrying about you. It is quite troubling to see you in such a state, you know? After all, you are my daughter. Seeing how your sister ended up, I decided to keep a closer eye on you. And in order to keep you away from dying on your adventures, I prepared a special gift that you will surely find fascinating. A magic of great power, something you cannot learn by normal means. Magic fit for a god! You only have to accept.” It sounded far too good to be true. But in all honesty, it did grab Noheme’s attention effortlessly. She wanted power and he was offering just that. But as she said, he did nothing from the goodwill of his heart. There was always something that was not obvious in the beginning. A price that would reveal itself later, ruining one’s life completely. ”What’s the catch?” She wanted to know before she would decide. A twisted smirk and words that sounded like silence itself. He was not joking, even if he looked like he was. Completely serious, he wanted to give his ‘daughter’ power that she seeked without naming a price. For the girl herself would one day form the price without even knowing it.
