Alejandro paid us a visit the other night (July 15th). We were playing around outside, Ox and I, when I suddenly began to see something. A literal something. It was like seeing smoke or transparent liquid moving around – I think my “sight” of the supernatural is getting better. I couldn’t identify who it was at the time, but there were two. They seemed friendly enough, but I had my guard up. Unfortunately, my guard was misplaced. Ox started saying “Egrai, egrai” which meant “run” or “go away” in Elvish. He was acting funny and every couple of seconds, he’d grip me roughly. I was worried that something was happening–that the two I saw were doing something to him, but I started to go back in the house like he told me to. I stopped and came back and when I did, I faced my worst fear.

Alejandro Corvinus had managed to not only take over Ox’s body, but also to keep Kesh, Don, and Valik all from pushing him out. He came closer and I was cautious of the other two, still unable to tell which side they were on, and when it was revealed that he was Alejandro, I freaked. He reached for me running his hands down my arm, on my shoulder, through a string of my hair. Do you know how freaky it is to have some 1,000 year old immortal that looks like an ugly, scarred version of Sean Connery doing that to you? EW! I freaked out. He sat calmly in his chair and I finally asked him what he wanted. He wanted information on the Demonics I knew. It seems he’s aware that I have Balthazaar, he knows Ox has Kesh, and he knows I recently started speaking to Devastation–another of the Original 9 who was at Ox’s mom’s house as a sort of guardian for Pop this whole time. He’s very easy to talk to and looks almost just like Kesh but with black hair.

What Alejandro wanted to know was about the Amulet of the Fallen Sun. I told him I had it and he had possessed the wrong body. I don’t know if he believed me, but he changed the subject and said he’d rather know about Zenthroth and Lin, two of the Original 9 Demonics who had chased Balthazaar to us that night: the night that I had him sealed away within me. I considered every possibility. I couldn’t fight Alejandro; I couldn’t hurt him because he was in Ox’s body and I couldn’t destroy him anyway. He’s immortal and I’m…untrained and was unprepared. I got lucky in my dream when I burned him. He seemed to think of that as a battle. I promise: it won’t be the last. Fighting him at that point wasn’t an option, I didn’t know any spells that Kesh wouldn’t already know, and I couldn’t negate him out of Ox as I had done to Gab’s ex-husband warlock who had taken him over. We’d had a plan then. This time, there wasn’t a plan. I also considered what he would do if I didn’t give up the information. It was like I had to choose between saving humanity or saving Ox. Even if I had told him about Zen and Lin, he might have hurt Ox anyway.

The longer I went through my options, the more impatient he grew. Finally, he stuck what is called a Shadow Spike into him. The heart of his soul. The longer I took to answer, the bigger the hole got. I finally lied, asking him why he thought I had seen Zen or Lin.

“Because they were chasing him,” he told me.

I simply told him they must have lost him because when he got here, he was alone. I kept my cool in lying. People say I’m a bad liar, but only when it’s about something small like a joke of taking someone’s pencil. When it really matters, when it truly depends on it, I can lie. Anyone will believe me. He did. He left, not bothering to mend the hole. I healed him and…before I knew what was happening, I went into rage mode. I blacked out. I don’t remember what happened exactly, but Gab says that Balthazaar and I were trying to destroy each other because we blamed one another for what happened. I don’t remember until Maladon and I had a talk and he said that Alejandro had been planning on hurting Ox anyways; I had done the right thing by lying.
