Lost Book (Self)

Postby Sarah » 09/28/2016 1:01 AM

“How have you not brought back any souls?” Jabru asked harshly.

“I’m telling you, someone else has my book. Every time I show up to a soul they are already gone and there is reaper stench all around,” Vida explained.

“I’m telling you to bring something back on that scythe of yours, or face the consequences,” Jabru said before dissipating.

A small shuddered went through Vida as he thought about what Jabru had threatened.

With a heavy sigh he opened his little leather bound black book. Among various things it had the names and dates of souls he should reap. Jabru was convinced that Vida was slacking off, or letting his souls get away to seraphim or demons. In truth Vida didn’t quite know what was going on, but he did know other reapers were involved.

He looked down at his scythe, a set of three milky white throwing knives, they hungered for him to make a kill. Try as he might he couldn’t keep Jabru’s threat out of his mind. Vida was a reaper and so he had a lot of value, Jabru wouldn’t see him destroyed, no, he would seem him twisted and mutated to do his bidding somewhere else. The few times Vida had been to the farmlands recently he had seen the monstrosities hanging around.

Not all the reapers agreed with Jabru’s illegal experimentation, but the majority was more than happy that hybrids were coming to life once again. Most reapers wanted to get out from under the traditional gods’ control. With hybrids they’d have enough power to separate themselves and then have the power to back up any retaliation.

Vida hated the hybrids. Reapers didn’t need to separate, for the most part the gods had no control over them. there were still plenty of reapers who took matters into their own hands, either by choosing where the souls go themselves, or offering the souls up to third parties.

When Vida came out of his thoughts he found himself sitting politely under a tree. He was still in the reaper’s realm. Silver fog layered the ground by a few inches, below it was something that felt like grass but was not. The tree he was under was like a tree, but it was not. The entire realm was like Evelon but fundamentally different. Nothing lived in this realm, only the reapers but they were not native to the vaults really.

Vida supposed it was like what he’d heard of the Chaos plane. The vault mirrored Evelon, but they were separate in the universe. Perhaps they were two different universes entirely. Somehow the gods had allowed them to create doors in between the universes in order to work and have a safe place to call home.

The traditional gods were no greater or worse than the non-traditional gods. If nothing else, it seemed that all the gods respected and needed the reapers.

Jabru, the reapers patron deity, must have been very powerful in order to be allowed to create his own species. Immense power in order to make the reapers become the holders of death. Compared to the other species Reapers were by far the most powerful, at least that was how Vida saw things. They could take the life of any creature, mortal or no. Even the gods had wariness when working with reapers. Vida admired, and was loyal to his god, even if they didn’t always see eye to eye.

He’d certainly spent enough time thinking under a tree. There was no way he could reap if he was lost in thought all day. With a huff he helped himself up. Vida wondered for a moment whether or not he should open his own door. He could… but it took a lot out of him to do so. No, he’d find someone to do it for him and then he’d save his energy for reaping, or if he got in a sticky situation.

"Hey babe,” Uriah said falling in step with Vida.

Vida stopped for a moment before he realized who had talked. “Oh, hey U,” he replied with a smile. “How’re things with the masks?” he asked. Normally Uriah hated talking about them, but it seemed that Vida had earned the reaper’s trust in that area.

“They’re up to no good as usual. It’s getting harder for me to get away from them. They pay more attention to me than they do Ozara, and she’s the leader!” Uriah said exasperated.

“I’m sorry to hear that,” Vida said.

“But I’m not here to talk about them. I’m here to talk about you,” Uriah said.

“Oh?” Vida asked.

“Yeah, it isn’t often that our good Jabru threatens to take away a reaper’s status,” Uriah said. “Everyone is talking about you right now,” he added.

“How did word spread so quickly?” Vida asked annoyed.

“Oh you know how those things go,” Uriah said dismissively. “Anyways, I’m here to help,” he told Vida.

“I appreciate it, but I do feel like I need to ask why,” Vida said.

“Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth dear Vida,” Uriah chastised.

Vida gave him a hard look. “It’s just unlike you to be away from your duties to help a fellow reaper,” he said.

Uriah pursed his lips for a moment. “Fine. Maybe one of my Masks has your book,” he admitted.

Vida’s eyebrows shot up. “So we are here to talk about your Masks,” Vida said. He almost wanted to laugh. “How’d they get their hands on my book?” he asked. “Don’t they inherit the book from the reaper they’ve killed?” Vida asked.

“Most of the time yes. At least that’s what happened for the other three. Somehow the fourth got their hands on yours,” Uriah told him. “But not to worry, I’ve located the book that she should have,” Uriah said.

“So you’ll get my book back then?” Vida asked hopefully.

“Not exactly, I’m afraid you’ll have to take over the dead reaper’s book,” Uriah said. “But I even have it with me so you can start right away,” he added happily.

Vida wasn’t pleased with that news. He liked his book, he’d had it since his creation. Maybe Jabru had set this all up to see if reapers could adopt each other’s books. “Very well,” Vida said sounding only slightly defeated.

“Perfect!” Uriah said handing over the book.

“… Interesting,” Vida was almost at a loss for words at the sight of the book. It was vibrantly pink with little pink gems decorating it. The book was also spiral bound.

“I know, I know, but trust me. If you saw the girl who inherited it everything would make more sense,” Uriah said with a nervous laugh.

Vida wanted to ask Uriah an endless string of questions about his Masks, but he knew his friend would not tell him. There were secrets even in the reaper’s realm. It was quite unfortunate, but it was necessary. Anywhere politics were involved there had to be secrecy on some level. Especially with the Seraphim council. They were so anal, more so now than ever, it was hard to get anything done with them around. Reportedly they had sent an ambassador to stay in the farmlands. That news had been quite the laugh considering that was where most of the hybrids were.

Vida couldn’t help but smile at the memory. Jabru was pleasantly transparent when he needed to be. The council had too much power, and Jabru was a god. There was need to put them back in their place.

“There see, you look better already,” Uriah noted.

“Yes. Thank you my friend. I must get going now,” Vida said.

“Of course, shall I?” Uriah asked, giving a small bow.

“It would be much appreciated,” Vida said returning the bow. He'd forgotten that Uriah did this. It felt uncomfortable to bow considering they were equals, but Vida wasn't going to be rude either.
