We’ve had a pretty quiet week. Not much to write about and when I thought about it, I ended up busy.

Somewhere around July 3rd or 4th, I had a dream about a man. An old man with a scar on one side of his face and his opposing eye wasn’t…right, you could say. He tried to kill me in the dream–for whatever reason–and I ended up stabbing him, chopping him into little bitty pieces, and setting them on fire. When I turned around, he was standing there with a smile on his face without a scratch. In the dream, he was a Satanist and it made him immortal. Back and forth we went with him trying to kill me until I finally woke up freaking out.

I told Malakesh about the dream a couple nights later. The man is in fact real and he is immortal and thankfully he doesn’t have a physical form (thank goodness). He isn’t a Satanist, either, but he is extremely dark and powerful. His name is Alejandro Corvinus, the half-brother of Alexander Corvinus. Let’s just say that the movie Underworld caught a lucky break with their lore about the immortal and his two sons – one bitten by bat, the other by wolf.

Alejandro, on the other hand, is the stain upon the family. Kesh told me how to keep him away from me and I was prepared to do so, but he didn’t come back. Kesh’s suspicions about who has been behind all of the messages and trying to gather everyone together became clear: Valik’s opposite, Anna-what’s-her-face, the original Demonic created by the Creator for that 5 minutes “pre-Kesh”.

In an earlier post, I detailed the energy signatures taken from the Harbinger of Destruction: ours because we were retrieving it and two unknowns. The two unknowns were, in fact, Vaneeshstal’s and one other: Anna-what’s-her-face. She is the master puppeteer behind this whole set-up with the messages and the calls for gatherings. The reason his suspicions were further confirmed, he explained, was because Alejandro is a co-worker or partner to the original demon. I wasn’t the only one he visited in dreams, Kesh said: other people were seeing him in their dreams as well because no one has been answering the messages. Alejandro was sent as a sort of threat to tell them “answer or else”.

He finally came back, actually. Last night, but it wasn’t in my dreams. EarlierĀ  word use of “puppeteer” is ironic considering that’s exactly what happened last night. We were trying to go to sleep and Ox snuggled up to me saying something about a dream of a black storm. “No lightning, just strong winds, rain, sleet, and hail. Black clouds for miles upon miles.” That was his description. Feeling somewhat off, I wanted to be near Valik because his light was like mine: pure and radiant. I wanted to be near that light so I requested his presence while Ox slept.

Ox’s arm started flopping around on me like crazy like it was looking for something, as if someone was controlling it. Valik put a shield on his other arm and I traced the energy strings (one can think of them as chakra strings like in the anime Naruto) to a group of three, but Valik only managed to identify two. One of the Dos Domientest of Peace with the Harbinger of Greed. I was ready to yank them over and take them on, but Valik decided to talk to them through the strings. They were looking for Maladon. Again. The question is: why would one of the Beings of Light be teamed up with a Harbinger? They don’t get along. At all. Valik had me to cut their strings and we thought it was over with. We were wrong.

The arm started flopping around again. This time, the strings made me sick to my stomach. It was a very dark energy, not demonic, but about as dark as the Original 9 because only entities of that magnitude of darkness make me ill. Valik asked for Balthazaar, I obliged, and Balthazaar traced the string. Alejandro was playing around with the arm this time. What he was looking for, we’ve no idea and didn’t feel like asking him. Balthazaar also detected a second pair of strings and a shadowed string. There were four in a group this time: Peace, Greed and the Harbingers of Famine and Destruction, who had his own black string shadowed by the other three. Valik said that I must have done a great job in hiding Lestraido because no one could sense her during all of this. I felt proud.

Balthazaar switched back to me and I got to deal with Alejandro through Valik’s instructions. I was to imagine the image of what Kesh told me to do to Alejandro in my mind and combine it with energy. Think of it as a powerful picture. I sent the image through the strings to Alejandro and once he got it, Valik gave me a spell. It’s called the Stone Barrier Spell. What happens, essentially, is a person uses this spell to lock their opponent up in an earth dome thick enough that they can’t simply bust through. The more energy one puts into it, the thicker the dome. After the incantation, I snipped the chakra strings from all of them and a shield was put up on the arms.

Alejandro apparently got mad because he sent a huge, dark golem towards us. Valik and I prevented it from coming any further than a couple of miles long enough that Alejandro ran out of energy and the thing went POOF! I slept well enough except for my half-dream that I was at a house I shouldn’t have been in Hillsboro (Billy’s house where I first met Balthazaar) and Alejandro showed up there trying to scare me. I think at that point I fell completely asleep and he didn’t bother me at all.

Tonight, I’m anxious to see if he’ll come back at all. I’m still curious as to who sent gel-like entities that were shooting poisonous darts and spikes at us the past several nights. I think it was July 7th and 8th? Not sure. Days are turning to minutes again. I hate that.
