First off, I would like to say that Harbingers aren’t just persistent – they’re stubborn! I’ll brief you readers with a quick summary of events according to the dates.

July 11th. I walk outside for a bit of fresh air. Harbingers arrive under the thick shadows of the Mamossa tree in our front yard: Greed and Famine. They start telling me they want to talk to Maladon, the Harbinger of Pain. I insist that he’s not at our house and they bring his brother, Destromada (Destruction), into the scene. I go to get Maladon, he says to go away and wants no part in their plan, they insist, he brings out Malakesh – the Original 9 Demonic of War. He goes full form and demands that they leave. Oh, did I mention that they had the Dos Domientes (Being of Light) of Peace with them?

Anna-what’s-her-face shows up not ten minutes later. Y’know, Valik’s opposite? The master puppeteer in all of this? She demands he go full form to see her. I freaked out…a lot. I don’t usually “see” Valik in full form and the wings (non-physical; you don’t see with your eyes as much as you do with your “third eye” or, in normal terms, “imagination”) caught me off guard. The sky breathing thing that freaked us out? Yeah, that was the Creator. He was monitoring the conversation between Anna and Valik to make sure there wouldn’t be a fight. Valik told her to leave and it was only when Sethean (Ox’s lycan “brother”; non-physical) arrived that she left.

Fifteen minutes after that, Ox was severely weakened physically because of the enormous amount of energy that was used for Kesh and Valik to go full-form. A wandering (non-physical) lycan clan called the Kishimir clan arrive…with a warlock. This warlock was the brother of my Given, Gab’s, now deceased husband. He was commanding the lycan clan to invade upon Sethean’s territory. A messenger of Sethean’s was killed and Ox demanded in fair payment that the Kishimir clan could leave if they handed over the warlock. He tried to teleport, I negated the ability and blocked him, and they gave him up quickly. I fought him, won a couple of scars in the battle, and ultimately…well, he’s fully destroyed. Death by Elvish-spell vortex + combustion. He won’t come back from that. I got a non-physical scaaarrr. Yay! ❤

Maladon got drunk from seeing his brother and both Morgaea and I lectured him for it because we admire him (she loves him, duh) and we don’t like to see him like that. There was a sudden pain in Ox’s body shortly after he switched back he asked Balthazaar to identify a “seal” on his hand that burned. It was a timer sent by Anna-what’s-her-face herself that would swallow his life at the allotted time unless we handed over Maladon. Thankfully, Balthazaar removed it completely.

Oh, yeah. I thought it was over with.  Then we went to bed. In a half-asleep state, Destromada disobeyed Kesh’s orders and slipped into my mind. I guess you could call it possession, but not really. Within my mind, he tried to throw me around and hurt me to get me to call out for Maladon. I refused. He seemed to think that I was the one Maladon was in love with so he thought he could get me to scream out for him, lure him out if you will. I didn’t. I refused. Balthazaar almost went haywire and Gab and I both tried to scare him away with light–he hates light. It failed. He would simply back away and fight through the light to get to me. Finally, after my “last chance” of calling for Maladon that I deliberately outright refused him, he stabbed me with one of his claws in my chest. A poisonous large hole in my chest that only Maladon could cure.  He also marked my hand with the same seal as Anna’s to ensure that my life was forfeit if Maladon wasn’t surrendered. Balthazaar banished him from my mind and body and I woke up calling for Kesh or Valik. Kesh answered, drew out the poison (by no means was it pleasant or easy), and removed the marker.

The next morning, July 12th, Valik tended to me. He sealed up the wound with a (again, non-physical) piece of Ox’s “skin” to cover my hole and heal it. We were planning on going to Nene’s, Ox’s mom’s house, that day. It was a Monday to watch wrestling. The fact that the house managed to get its electricity cut off that same day was rather ironically coincidental, I think. As I was getting dressed, one of my Guardians, the lycan Vallen, stated that he would be going with me. I argued and he flat out said, “You got a hole in your chest trying to be brave. I’m not letting it happen again.” I allowed him to come along and as we started to load up the car, another Guardian, the warrior Jack, arrived and stated he also was going with me. We managed to piss each other off because I thought it was ridiculous that they were “paranoid” that I needed so much protection and he thought I was being foolish by thinking I could handle things on my own.

Ox sent the Guardians ahead to Nene’s house while we made a quick trip into town. While waiting for him to buy drinks in a convenient store, we sat in the car and sensed Destromada only 100 ft away searching. Not for us, for someone else. Likely other Harbingers or more Dos Domientes (Being of Light). I hid our energy signature. I suppose he thought Maladon was in the bag because he was cocky enough to believe the marker was still on me and that I was dying. Fail. We went straight to Nene’s house after that and several minutes afterward, I went outside to talk to Jack. We managed to piss each other off even more. He walked off and I went after him, sensing that something was wrong. Vallen came with me and behind Pop’s shop, Jack was severely injured–almost dead–from Destromada. I was infuriated, but Ox got me back in the house and Vallen got Jack back to our house to heal him.

That night, we went home to see if our kids could withstand sleeping without A/C. It was too hot in the house so we had no choice. We had to return to Nene’s house for the night. Destromada, as we were leaving, appeared under the Mamossa tree again. He didn’t have Greed, Famine, or Peace with him. He again demanded Maladon and this time, I had Balthazaar create a clone to “escort” Destromada to the corner where Ox and I used to walk every night around Nene’s house. We went over there and after the kids went to sleep met Destromada. This time, Valik talked to him. It wasn’t pleasant.

Greed tried to attack Valik from behind, but I created a barrier and stood back to back with the angelic to protect him. I fought Greed–holding back, of course, because the destruction of a single Harbinger, Demonic, Dos Domientes, or Angelic could upset The Balance–and we chased them off. We told Peace to get away from them: it wasn’t a good idea. On our way back, Alejandro Corvinus made an appearance. Valik had me charge up some arrows with light energy and fired them, also scaring him off.

Later that night, around 3 AM or so, Ox and I got into an argument. I turned over and enraged by what was said, I closed my eyes and tried to sleep. Accidentally, I astral projected to a place I didn’t recognize. There was land burning for miles, fresh embers all over the place and small fires still going, as if war had just come through where I was. There, I met Anna-what’s-her-face. Her and I had a talk. I tried to reason with her on why she had to destroy the world and she tried to reason with me as to why not. I can’t remember what was said, but she made me lose myself for a moment and I attacked her, rolled with her, and pinned the ultimate demonic down by her neck. She laughed and told me to kill her. I refused and she took advantage, pinning me this time. Again, she said something I can’t remember, and I “woke up” after Valik tried shaking me to get me to listen to him. I was crying. He and I had a discussion about the cruelty of humans, the justice to stop it, and everything until 5 or 6 AM. I finally fell asleep.
