    Twitter to follow along: HereticalLoveQ

    Your name is Last Kapernieks, and currently you have an immortal witch.

    Inside your MIND.

    Not only that, but you've just recently been murdered and brought back to life (somewhat) by the same witch. The same witch who has now set you to the task of reuniting her pieces so she can be whole once more.

    Now you are sitting in the living room of an ex-priest and talking about witch souls, their possible locations, and other related info.

    All in all, its been a pretty weird day.

    "Any idea of who the witches were that they were looking for during the crusades?" You ask Kenzington.

    The ragged ex-clergyman shrugs and takes another swig of a fresh beer.

    "Hard to say for certain, most of the records were either destroyed or are heavily guarded. The church may have wanted me to do some research, but even then they kept me on a short leash. I know whoever they were looking for must have been fairly powerful, even as far as a witch goes, the Bleeding Sword sent a lot of people. A LOT of people."
    >> Papa-N !!z0ABcqUnNAP 03/12/12(Mon)17:10 No.18301880
    "How many is a lot?" You inquire.

    "Over a hundred, which is a lot for the Order at the time, considering I estimated their numbers to be around a thousand at the time."

    "It was over a hundred, I killed at least a hundred." Kiara says nonchalantly.

    Thankfully Kenzington can't hear her, you have a feeling he might not be so keen to speak to you if he knew there was currently a witch occupying your mind.

    >more questions for Kenzington? Contact the Professor to see if he has any different info? Back to the internet?

    >ahh yeah best lunch break ever

    Do you know of any others like your self that were banished or vanished?

    Was there anything in your research about heavily guarded areas constructed sometime after the end of the witch hunts?
    >> Anonymous 03/12/12(Mon)17:11 No.18301897
    Just re-iterating shit said before: We don't know how much she's lying or overplaying herself.

    >Personally I think it'd be funny as shit if she were a lightweight and everything last did affected her twice or thrice as much. Might be handy if we ever want to shut her up for a bit.

    On a side note, as much as I like kiara,we're being way too helpful. We just got drowned and our mind semi-permenantly invaded by an ancient, possibly malicious force in one day, folks get PTSD for less than that, id be wigging out at least a little bit.

    This. Lets fuck up Marco, man. And yeah, he's taking this too well.

    I wonder how Kiara would react to all the music that exists today? Classical (and sub genres), swing, jazz, big band, doo wop, all the rock genres, country, country pop, pop (which varies by decade) etc etc

    We need to sell the crosses as historical items and buy platinum, which we use to cast platinum tipped ammo. I mean--it's the most obvious. Chances are witch hunters have that, too. And there may be witches who work for the Church, who knows?

    Also, I think he isn't undead. Just not completely dead. Death is a process and not a black and white thing. His organs clearly work if he took a sigh, so maybe the witch is just 'animating' him, acting as a sort of life support?

    Other than Marco, he still has to show up for work if he doesn't want to become a homeless begger.

    "Well do you know of any possible witch soul locations? Places that were built after the crusades that could possibly house one?"

    "Eh? What makes you think they would be stored some place old? No my friend, like I said, a witch soul destroys places they are housed. Any place from the 1300's that tried to contain one would be rubble by now. If you really want to track one down, you would want to try some place far newer."

    That shocks you a bit. Here you had expected to find Kiara's soul inside some decrepit old church.

    "So would it be a newer church? A renovated one or something? A shrine?"

    "Nah, it would have to be more solid than that. The church learned quickly that trying to contain a witch soul was a tough process, its likely that the soul has been moved over time even." Kenzington says as he flips channels.

    "Moved over time? You mean it probably isn't in some place old?"

    "If it is somewhere old, it would have to be a frequently renovated place, and one strong enough to contain the soul."

    The two of you fall silent for a minute, each sipping a beer and watching a Doritos commercial. Who thinks these things will sell chips???

    "So are there more like you? I assume the church didn't just give the task of investigating this kind of stuff to you." You finally ask, trying to break the silence.

    Kenzington shrugs, and gestures at the pack of smokes in your front pocket. You hand him one and snag one for yourself.

    "More like me? Plenty more. Though I'll admit, its been a while since I was called for active duty." Kenzington says as he rolls up the sleeve of his robe to reveal a tattoo.

    A tattoo of a sword dripping blood...

    Kenzington smirks as he sees your face.

    "You didn't think I was just some ex priest, did you? Regular clergymen aren't privy to this kind of information."

    "So you're one of the order?"

    "Technically speaking, yes. Though like I said, its been a while since I did anything actively with them. I guess you could almost call it forced leave. You see, they've suspected something of me for quite some time. I was never a high ranking member, either, just a foot soldier. Which is why I don't know more."

    "Suspected... Something?"

    Kenzington grins.

    "I guess you could say I've never been one for killing witches. Which is why I haven't pumped you full of platinum." He slowly reveals a revolver tucked into a shoulder holster underneath his robe, "But I highly suggest you don't do anything stupid."

    You stiffen slightly at the sight of the gun. Its only now you realize that the security six is missing, likely looted by Marco's thugs. The Draco is also sitting out inside your car, as you aren't exactly equipped to carry it concealed at the moment.

    "Noted. So why does the church even hunt witches anyways?"

    Kenzington relaxes a bit, perhaps realizing you are either not looking for trouble, or are more or less completely unarmed.

    "Like I said, foot soldier. From what I gather, though, it has more to do than religion alone. If I had to take a guess, its the power they hold. I was trained to hunt them down, track them, but never given much of a reason as to why. Most of those at my level just blindly follow orders out of faith."

    >> Anonymous 03/12/12(Mon)17:45 No.18302213
    Other than plat. tipped ammo, I wonder if they've thought up other new methods? I imagine witches and witch hunters have changed even in the last few decades.

    Maybe witch hunting was broken down into a science by the 20th century, and new tools have been developed? Anti-magic technology? I don't know.

    I guess they don't want witches to have the influence they did in the past. Even without a ton of crazy power, immortality is powerful enough. Imagine being able to pick away at a political system you don't like, and with enough times, you can contribute to the genuine opportunities of making the empire slightly worse or less efficient.

    I say we bug out. We've done enough for Kiara now. Let's stock up on ammo, get two side-arms (pistol and derringer for when we lose the pistol), and pay Marco and his friends a visit. Somehow. Without getting in the eye of the law.

    "So what made you decide to stop hunting witches? Or I assume you chose to stop, at least."

    Kenzington sits back, his brow furrowing in thought.

    "I guess if it was one thing in particular it was the rending. The ritual involved in splitting up a witch. Its not a pretty thing, boy, not at all. The Order is stronger and more efficient now, most of the witches they find are between infants and young teens. And I'll tell you something more." He sits up now, staring at you and looking far more serious than you've seen him before, "They don't discriminate, they are equal opportunity, they hunt them all. If I had to pick one thing, its that I got tired of sending young girls to a place worse than hell."

    "So the Order is still going strong? Are witches still prevalent?"

    "In the wild? No. The Order has gotten better at tracking them by far. We use modern equipment that can pick up on the magical... Radiation I guess I would call it, that witches give off when they use their powers. Like I said, most of them are rounded up and rended before they even know they are a witch."

    "The Order is worldwide, then?"

    "Worldwide and heavy in numbers at the moment. Plenty of religious fanatics in the world that will follow blindly, the best kind of witch hunter."

    "So witches are evil? Is that why you hunt them?"

    "You're an idiot." Kiara remarks.

    "Evil?" Kenzington shrugs, "Witches are just like you and me kid, no more evil than the rest of us. Though living in constant fear of persecution can turn a lot of them to desperation, and desperate witches equals bad things."

    "So witches are... People?"

    "Just people, gifted, but people." Kenzington nods.

    "Anything else you want to know? Can you read this guys mind?" You mentally ask Kiara.

    "Nothing more, and no. Notice his platinum earrings? They do a very good job of disallowing that." The witch says flatly.

    You do notice his earrings now. Shaped like a small cross, made of shiny platinum.

    "Well thanks for all the help, but I've got to get on the road now. I'm surprised you were willing to share so much, honestly." You stand up and shake Kenzington's hand.

    The aging ex-priest smiles sadly and shakes his head.

    "Don't be. If you're crazy enough to be chasing after this kind of stuff, I can assure you that you aren't going to live too long. But good luck, with whatever it is you're trying to do."

    The ex-priest's words still playing in your head, you leave his house and head back to your car.

    >Where to now?

    We still have no info on where we could find her soul.

    I guess we could call the conspiracy nut-case and give him information we learned. Don't think it's safe though. If the Order is as powerful as the Kenzington says then they certainly have phones tapped for key-words like 'witch, soul, etc'

    so, i've been thinking(it's a new experience for me) and realized that we will probably find quite a few witch souls before we find Kiara's unless we somehow find out exactly where her soul is as opposed to searching for a building that gets renovated a lot(that seems to be what we are doing now).

    Anyone got an idea as to what we should do with those?

    Another thing. If the hunters are smart, the souls will be somwhere in a hidden military base in the middle of nowhere. There is really no need to keep a witch soul in a highly visible building when it can be in a bunker in Tibet.

    Still without much to go on, you figure its worth calling the nutcase and then perhaps trying the professor.

    Dialing in the number, it again is picked up after just half a ring.

    "DUDE! I told you man, secure connections!! FUCK!!!"

    You hear something being crinkled up in the background and what sounds like an old 56k modem booting up. Then there is a loud electric *POP!*

    "Shit that was close man, but don't worry, the line is encrypted now."


    "Yeah man, home brew encryption device. Made it myself out of a microwave, a modem, two easy bake..."

    "Sounds cool, so have you found anything out yet?"

    "Hey man, relax, you've gotta give me more time man!" The nutcase says, clearly frustrated.

    "Right, sorry... Well I've found out some more stuff..." You tell him everything you've just learned.

    The line is silent for several moments.

    "Shit man, that is like, some deep shit man. But yeah, I've found out that the soul isn't going to be in any place old. Gotta have the platinum lining right? That shit wouldn't go unnoticed. If I had to take a guess, I bet you that they store them in the FEMA camps. Dude, I just figured it out man! The fucking reptilians are in on this! They have been the whole time!!!""

    If the government really is involved, how are we going to get through a military base? I mean--getting on the Feds' list of Most Wanted is NOT a thing we want to do.

    Secondly, I say we get a baseball cap and insert bits of lead in it. Just in case. Both the nut and ex-hunter both said magic can be detected, right? We may as well be safe than sorry.

    "Yeah, you're probably right, but lets ignore them for now until we can find a way to topple their evil plot and save the human race." You say, face-palming even as you do.

    "Good thinking man, we can't take them out just yet. Do you have like, a website man? You should! We need people to listen man!"

    "Yeah, I'll get right on that..."

    "Great! Now back to the locations, I have narrowed it down a bit I think. See the best defense for keeping a witch contained is to have no one around, apparently. From what I've been hearing, a witch can like, get inside your mind and control you, man. So if the military has a bunch of people nearby, I think the soul might be able to take them over, right? This guy I've been talking to, man, this fucking guy. He KNOWS his shit man, and he said that only witch hunters are immune to their mind powers or some shit." The nut is talking at a million miles an hour, making it difficult to follow along.

    "So you're saying it probably won't be inside an active military base?" You inquire, hoping you aren't chasing geese here.

    "Yeah man, too risky and shit. The more people nearby, the less secure it would probably be. So see these death camps man, these death camps... Oh wait, no man those are heavily guarded and shit... Hmm..." The nut trails off, apparently bummed that his FEMA death camp theory isn't holding up.

    Well this is some new information. If he's right, the soul wont be anywhere near where a lot of people are. That narrows it down quite a bit, and you weren't exactly looking forward to the prospect of having to bust into a maximum security base or something.

    She could have been moved so we can't rely on the age of the structure.

    I mean, if I was the head of witch hunting organisation with ties to the Vatican and its ludicrous funds, I would build a modern prison that would last indefinitely. Plastic doesn't really decay, nor does glass or some metal alloys.

    If I really wanted to hide the soul, I would have has her buried in the concrete foundations of something. Or just buried her under a mass of concrete.

    "Anyways man, I've got to keep digging to find out more. See, there's this other guy, and he's pretty sure..." The nut trails off, before continuing in a hushed whisper.

    "He's pretty sure that aliens from the Andromeda galaxy are in on this shit. See, they can talk to the reptilians using chem trails."

    "Yeah, that's totally making sense. But before you do much more of that, we gotta focus and find the soul first right?" You almost plead, hoping he isn't going to waste a bunch of time with aliens.

    "Right, got it. In the meantime man, you should start looking for newer places, heavy places man. Bunkers and shit that don't have people in them. Gotta split up and cover more ground, right? See with the deterioration, I figure any place housing souls can't be more than like, fifty, maybe sixty years old."

    You answer as seriously as you can with a "right..."

    "Also, any idea how I can secure this connection from my end?" You ask, and instantly regret doing so.

    "Fuck yeah man! See, if you want to make it portable like, you need to rig it up to some aligned crystals. See, ancient aliens used that form of communication to beam messages to space, and the government can't pick up on that. Its not active encryption, but it should do the trick. Though then the aliens will pick up on our conversations, so you may want to be careful."

    "I'll make sure to do that..."

    "Cool, get the materials together and I'll walk you through it."

    "Right, I'll let you know the next time I pick up some aligned crystals..."

    what is preventing them from just throwing the soul into a volcano?

    I'm pretty sure that there is technology avalible capable of lowering the soul deep into lava tubes. If this is done secretly, nobody will find it in hundreds of years.

    And, I still think that they keep each soul in a bunker in the middle of nowhere, probably in a third world country or a sparsely inhabited area. They might have a few guards immune to the mind control/corruption effect stationed there just to be safe.

    Alternatively, they could probably send it into orbit and let it fly around the planet, thousands of meters above the surface or dump in on jupiter.

    "Oh he sure seems like a good source." Kiara says, doing nothing to conceal her sarcasm.

    "Shut up you, I've got a bone to pick. Can you mind control me?"

    "If I wanted to do so, I would have already done it. You've been willing enough so far, and letting you have your own free will is far better than if I were to try to act alone in this. Rest assured, unless you try to hand me over to the Order or something, I won't seize control."

    "And I can trust you?"

    "Do you have a choice?" Kiara sighs, "Yes, you can trust me. I need you just as much as you need me. Without me, you would just collapse as a corpse, remember, I'm keeping you alive."

    First stop is a jewelry store to get the crosses appraised.

    Potentially sell them then and there if the offer is good enough (20k is a lot of money, and the church may be watching ebay for the crosses they used to seal witches with, so it might be worth it just to sell it for the value of the platinum)

    plus it reduces the risk of accidentally killing ourselves by removing Kiera.

    SELL THE CROSSES! They're historical items, or can atleast be sold for the raw material value.

    Goto a gun store or gun show--we don't need a machine pistol anyway. Just a CCW pistol, CCW holster and a derringer we store somewhere else on our person. And get concealable body armor.

    "Hey, didn't you say you could magic our way into a new car? Can you do the same for some guns and shit?"

    Kiara ponders for a moment.

    "I could, yes. Though right now I could only do it once, and I have a feeling we will need transport other than this... Thing, so for the moment I'm not going to use it."

    "Perhaps, and I'd rather not play my card just so you can get some new cudgel, you barbarian." She huffs.

    His network should be able to move them through a pawnshop somewhere at the other end of the state and keep our name off of it. In the meantime Pops (well, his minions) should be able to front us reasonable cash for them along with clean equipment for personal safety.

    The problem with calling in Dad is that we'll probably owe him a favor and given our situation paying that back will probably be awkward as all fuck. However selling the Crosses might tip someone off and selling them for full value is not going to be easy in the least.

    I'd rather go for asking Dad for money, not as big on the favor route as direct equipment but we get to hang on to some platinum and avoid possibly tripping some alarms and sell them at a later date to a discerning collector who will pay out the nose.

    "Sure, whatever you need. I'll send Diego with the stuff if you'd like that."

    This pricks up your interest a bit. Diego had always been somewhat of a mentor. He was an ex narcotics officer, spent some time with the Rangers in the gulf war. Your dad had bankrolled him to bust up his rivals, which had helped him secure his place as the drug king of Miami. He was a man of few words, but between him and your dad they had trained you well.

    "Yeah, haven't seen him in a while. You mind sending him with some... Bottles?" You ask.

    "Ah, yeah sure I can do that." Your dad answers, sounding surprised.

    Bottles had always been the code word for guns, or was the last time you had been involved in the family business.

    "I'll send him along with a smorgasbord, I'll let you pick out what you want."

    "Thanks dad. Family doing alright?"

    You hear your dad sigh and the clink of glass.

    "Alright enough. Anniversary is in a few weeks you know. It would do this old man a favor if you'd show up."

    "Yeah, I hadn't forgotten. I might, I'll let you know." You tell him. The anniversary of the day your mother had died, killed by a car bomb planted by a rival gang. Miami had been a war zone for three years after that. Gangsters died by the hundreds before your dad had cleared out every rival group, most by killing them off to the last man.

    You rifle through the bag and snatch up the AK, the Sig, and the Glock.

    "I would have picked the AR over the AK, but you're your fathers son. Russians and your AK's." Diego smirks.

    "You taught me how to use them both. I've always liked the AK more, you know that."

    Setting the weapons aside, you notice something else.

    "You brought me body armor?"

    "Kid, I've known you since you were a baby. If you've gotten into enough shit that you're asking for guns, then I KNOW you might need some armor."

    "Good call, whats it rated to?"

    "The plates? .308, multiple rounds. Try not to test them, though." Diego cracks a rare smile.

    Opening up the bag of money...

    "This is more than I asked for..."

    "Your dad said you didn't give him a real figure, so he dropped fifty large in there and told me to just let you grab how much you want."

    Well you could just grab the three grand or so that you realistically actually need...

    But all of dat dosh...

    Though you are fairly certain you could get by with just a few thousand, you snatch up what you can only imagine is around ten grand and stuff it into a smaller, separate bag.

    "Human greed." Kiara says haughty.

    "Shut up, we might need this." You say inside your own mind.

    "Your dad also told me to let you know that they captured Marco. He's still offering to let you do the dirty deed yourself, if you want."

    You don't reply, you aren't sure what you want just yet.

    "Thanks for all the stuff, Diego." You stand up, hefting the bag of guns and cash. It takes you back a few years, that's for sure.

    "You know I don't disappoint. Now if that's all you need, I've got to get going. Fucking Colombians are trying to hold out on us, not paying up, so you know what that means." He gestures back at his helicopter and you notice the "fuel tanks" on the sides.

    Which are actually disguised rockets. Well, its going to suck to be one of those guys.

    "Yeah, I've got all I need. Thanks again."

    "Hey, Diego! Before you go, take these." You fish the crosses out of your pocket and hand them over.

    "What are they?" He asks as he fishes one out of the sock.

    "Think of them as collateral for the cash. Don't go showing them off either, they aren't white."

    Diego nods, pockets them, and heads off to his chopper.

    "And have fun toasting some Columbians!" You shout after him.

    "You know me, of course I will."

    He climbs into the bell and you head back to the cuda.

    "Hmph, of everything we could be doing and you feel the need to arm yourself this heavily." Kiara says, sounding annoyed. "At least you got rid of all that platinum, I feel easier without it around."

    "Quit complaining, this stuff might keep us alive. What do you have against guns, anyways?"

    "Against guns? Nothing. Against thinking any of this will do you much good against a group of witch hunters? A lot. The Bleeding Sword aren't a bunch of old men in robes armed with bibles, you know."

    "I can hold my own in a gun fight, if you can see into my memories than you should be able to see that."

    "With my powers, maybe. I'd rather avoid any kind of direct confrontation. Anything like that is going to garner MUCH unwanted attention." She chides you.

    "Which is?"



    "You need food? How would you even eat?!"

    "Magic you dolt, I require MAGIC!"

    A sharp pain in your head!

    "If I wanted to do that, I can! Now just do as I say." She sounds very annoyed.

    Snagging a couple bags of chips, candy and whatnot, a few drinks. You make a nice little pile on the counter and plop down the money you had in your wallet.

    "Err..." You were about to ask just how the hell to do that, when it happens for you.

    Kiara peers rather unhappily down at a frilly Victorian style dress, then back at you.

    "This is what you imagined I would wear?"

    "Well, I mean..." You shrug.

    To be completely honest, you aren't sure what the fuck is going on right now. But you get that you are dreaming.

    Which doesn't exactly explain the short, annoyed looking girl with pale skin tapping her foot, arms folded. She's pretty, anyone would think that. Jet black hair dropping down past her waist, looking fairly unkempt. Vibrant purple eyes stare at you, they appear almost glowing, which is quite unnerving.

    "I don't even get to sleep peacefully without you here?" You complain finally, at a loss.

    "Well I can certainly leave if you'd like, or we can talk until you awaken. I'll admit, it would be rather boring to just wait it out, after thinking it over."

    >ask her to leave? Ask her some questions?

    "So WHY are you hear?" You ask with a why face.

    "I told you, I'm a part of your mind right now, technically speaking. Fused with it."

    "Oh cool, so will I wake up rested or is this like being awake?"

    "Its a dream, you are sleeping. I believe it would closely resemble a lucid dream." She says, raising a finger.

    With a sigh, you sit down and enjoy your pastry. Kiara takes the seat across from you at the expensive glass table. She folds her hands and rests her chin on them, staring at you.

    "This feels too weird..." You stand up, fetch a plate and another doughnut, and set it down in front of her. She makes no effort to eat it.

    "Well since the gang's all here, why don't you tell me a bit about yourself? I mean, if you can see into my memories you know pretty much everything there is to know about me."

    You bite into your food, just because she doesn't want hers doesn't mean you aren't going to indulge yourself. Even if this is just a dream.

    "About... Myself?" She raises an eyebrow.

    "Yeah, about yourself." You lick your fingers, savoring the flavor of the glaze.

    "Disgusting..." She comments at the sight. "Well what do you want to know?"

    The collapsed coal tunnels under the north sea would be absolutely perfect. Due to the way it collapsed, they are near impossible to dig out without them immediately collapsing and flooding again.
    It was known that they would collapse when they were abandoned so there would have been time to move it there.

    Though I will admit that in the context of the quest, it is an unlikely location

    "Well for starters, who and what are you?"

    "You know most of that. I've gone by too many names to list, and Kiara is fine. The Celts called me Kiara, and they were the only group to have never tried to use me like a tool. I rather liked them..." She closes her eyes for a moment.

    "So are you like, a spirit or something now?"

    "A spirit? Not exactly. Right now I am my mind, that's all. I have my memories, and some slight powers. But the soul is where my real strengths are."

    "So you weren't always like this?"

    "No you dolt, I was human once, otherwise how would I have been flayed and cast about to the far ends of the world?" She leans on one hand, looking increasingly bored.

    "Well you mentioned Caesar, so I'm sure you know more interesting people. Or did I guess." You leave the question rather open as you go for another pastry, selecting a bear claw.

    "Too many to list, I suppose. I don't care much for those who seat themselves in power, most of them seek little else and are therefor just as dull as the last."

    "Didn't you try to obtain power?"

    "Me? No, I've never sought out a throne. Despite being more or less worshiped by some groups, I never sought to lead any of them. Mortal troubles are for mortals, I care little for such trifle as the day to day of running a kingdom."

    "I brought them down because of what they tried to do with me. I'm not some dog to be chained and pointed at an enemy. Nor am I willing to waste my time sitting in a field to raise crops for an ungrateful and disgusting populace so they can expand their borders."

    "So you don't like the Romans?"

    "Its not that I dislike them, I dislike what they were trying to do. I was more than content with helping the people of the north, because for the most part they were a just and fair people, though there were exceptions. Caesar promised me that he was trying to unite them for the common good, he didn't mention that it would be under his flag and his rules. Nor that he wanted to use me as political clout, and a dangerous weapon."

    "Ah, so that's why you toppled Rome? To get back at one guy?"

    "To end his ideas? Somewhat I suppose..." Kiara trails off, and glares.

    "I will make you regret that, mark my words." She hisses. "I'm not a doll and I can tell when you're doing it on purpose, you can't hide things from me."

    Seeing her in animal pelts, blue war patterns adorning her face and a broadsword on her back, even for a brief few seconds, was worth it. You don't dare try the leather and whips, you get the feeling the flak from this will be bad enough.

    "Sorry, couldn't help myself..." You have to hold back your laughter.

    "So does everything I do disgust you? Seems like it does."

    "Even my power has limits, I can admit that. I can also admit that while men are greedy and deceitful, they are not always downright foolish. The witch hunters learned over time, though not generally when facing me as they never lived long enough to retell their tale."

Also it was the 16th century before it was first referenced, I know churches guarded secrets at that time (like their bible and literacy) but platinum production enough to have swarms of arrows take her out?

    Just felt like being a dick about that, back to the story! Ask her about the extent of her powers, what she could do to stop a normal witch hunter, what she thinks we can do using the little bits of her power we have access to with her recently acquired mind.

    "And they did?"

    "Indeed." She says bitterly, flicking at the doughnut, her face turning to a scowl.

    "So what happens once we finally get you back together? Will we still be bound together?"

    Kiara looks up at you, losing the scowl, her face softening.

    "I won't occupy your mind forever, and I'll leave the final decision up to you but... You can only remain alive if I allow it, if I maintain the binding. Though if you wish for death at some later time, I won't deny you it."

    You sit back in your chair to process that.

    "So you're telling me... I'm immortal so long as you are?"

    "Correct, I can maintain you like this for as long as you desire. I myself have no wish for death, so theoretically we could remain bound for eternity. Though you might grow bored, and again I will grant you death if you desire it, after I return to my full form. At the same time, I won't require you as a servant forever, I have little desire to rob you of your free will as others have tried to do to me. Though without me you would perish."

    That hits you like a freight train. You aren't even sure how to respond. You? Living forever like this? Though the alternative...

    "I'm not even going to think about that right now." you groan, "Lets change the subject... What are your sources of magic, I guess?"

    "Well there is life, which is why forests always appealed to me. I don't have to drain them of life entirely, in a massive northern forest my magic was strong from the present life. Though other sources of magic exist, relics older even than I, that sort of thing."

    "So with your soul being the host of most of your magic power, its pretty strong I take it?"

    Kiara perks up, this seems to interest her.

    "Very strong indeed. Strong enough that wherever it is is likely decaying at a rapid rate, rapid enough to perhaps even be noticed by those without knowledge of witches. Though at the same time, it could well be buried deep and out of sight, I do not know."

    "So what can the Bleeding Sword guys do? Do they have to rely on platinum alone? Can they magic shit up?"

    "Though I don't know about their current capacities or weapons, I can guess a bit. I know they were doing research at the time into harnessing witch souls and witches themselves to be used as weapons, I never saw any of that happen... What is that dreadful sound?"

    "That, my dear witch, is the sound of FUNK." You smirk as the tunes play in your dream.

    ~Well you can tell by the way I use my walk, I'm a woman's man, no time to talk~

    "Its... Well I guess I don't mind it." Kiara shrugs.

    "Seemed like a fitting song." You shrug.

    "So can you die? Can I die from stuff other than you letting me?"

    "I'm not sure if I can die, to be honest. You can die any number of ways I'm sure, though I don't know the specifics I assume you can still starve to death, for instance. I believe the only enemy you've mastered is age."

    "Well that's groovy I guess, I can dig looking like this, never really did want to get old and wrinkly. By the way, am I magic now? Can the bad dudes track me and whatnot?"

    Kiara shrugs.

    "With modern methods, I don't know. The Order's current capabilities are beyond me right now. I've made efforts to conceal my powers, though. For instance when I devoured the life of the grass, I did so by asking the grass for its life, which it granted me. Rather than simply taking it.
