Chapter 9: The Secret of the Scroll
Written by Alex Soto
"MY TIME HAS ÇOME!" echoed the voice from the Ancient. "I AM THE LAST OF THE TIME RIDERS!" the echoing voice continued adjusting to his former body.
"Veerok..." Mirabella whispered opening her eyes with her hands out
"MirabeLLa," he said quieter, looking at her. "ALL ihnolned ih this erisode wiLL ray."
"Please," Mirabella requested. "I do not have much time," she said as she gasped for air. Both Serafin and Stare showed signs of death as the tether to their mother began vanishing. "Save our...children."
"They are omÕø?" Veerok said surprised. Immediately, he raised his hand and formed a static shield around them, placing them in suspended animation via a time freeze.
"I've thought a lot about what it would be like to find you," Mirabella said straining to speak. She tried to smile for him but the pain didn't allow her. She continued, "Please promise me you'll let them go."
"A¦ter what they'ne both dohe?" Veerok answered.
"She was a child back then. She didn't know what she was getting involved in. I sense she regrets what she has done." This time a smile did creep up on her face. "Don't forget, I'm empathic."
"Ahd what o¦ the reôrle Creatmre?"
"I attacked him too. We are both to blame. I don't want any deaths to occur because of me." With the last strains of force, Mirabella took Veerok's hand in hers. "We will always be one." Her hair turned white several seconds later, initiating the last phase of her life.
"Look wVat yom'ne dohe!" Veerok turned to Amora.
Her eyes watered as she turned her gaze down unable to answer his gaze.
Warlock turned to his right and looked up.
A Watcher floated there observing all. Sensing someone looking at him, the Watcher turned and looked at Warlock.
"It bothers me that you have not left yet, Watcher. It means you sense there will be more to record."
The Watcher turned his gaze back to Veerok, not wanting to answer Warlock.
