The moon has done its nightly run around the planet Anor. Its inhabitants are oblivious to what is currently happening right above them. The stars are disappearing one by one.
The Oni is approaching the planet Anor. It is the only planet in the verse that has the potential to sustain it for millennia. It feels the pull of energy.
Julia wakes from a visionless sleep, with an uncontrollable tremble. Since the day she had been set on a course to defeat the Oni, her dreams were always filled with clues or weird sayings coming from voices she never before. She has never confided this with anyone.
Her mate rose to look at her feeling her uneasiness. Their bond and set in place, he felt every emotion she was having and she felt his. Normally a bond that strong would take time to develop, but it seems as if they bond quickly popped into place overnight.
“Julia the plan will work. The people are ready.”
“I know, that is not the problem. I feel like something is being held from me. I would see things as I sleep and now I see nothing.” She felt safe in telling him what she was thinking.
“That is natural that your mind would shut all things out for you to concentrate on the battle.”
She nodded in agreement. “We should get ready. Today it will appear.”
Lorac shook his head no and leaned to kiss her on her neck. The spot he found that pleases his mate and her beast. The familiar purr that came from within her, told him that her beast was enjoying the attention.
“We do not have time. We should get ready.” She said as she leaned into his warm lips. Lorac tongue was doing this odd twirl that sent shivers through her.
“We have time. I go will go quickly.”
Julia gave up and agreed. They had time. Plus if they should die sharing one more encounter would be a great send off.
The crew was ready and waiting for Julia and Lorac. Sanu was in his traditional battle garments. Elphin and Le’em was standing near the ships door when they walked in. Red T and the Januk was there as well waiting for them.
The two Godor’s had arrived a few minutes before to inform them that their people were ready.
“Alright, everyone. The Oni will appear shortly. We all know what to do. All I ask is to fight with everything within you. This will end with us being victorious or with us being no more. I am proud to be an Anorie and to stand with all of you in this battle is my honor.” Julia looked everyone in the eye and gave a slight tilt of her head.
Lorac spoke to his people and the Godors’s. Le’em began to translate until the planet shook viciously.
“It has arrived.”Red T announced. The Godor left the ship first and went to their people who hide in the dense trees.
Julia and the rest went straight out and looked at the Oni. The Oni was a huge pupiless eye above a pitch black circle.
“I have come to claim what was created for me.”
“The planet Anori was not created for you. It was created for The Anorie and the Godor’s.”
“You are wrong, abomination. The planet was created for the Oni’s. Prepare to die.”
The Oni sent a powerful vibration to the planet causing it to tremble a crack so deep, that the core of the planet could be seen.
Julia cried out “Now!” to the Anorie people. As one the Anorie sent out wave after wave of energy purposely feeding the Oni. It seemed to be enjoying the abundance until the stopped.
It was the Godors turn. The Godor people concentrated their energy to ingest the energy that was being consumed by the Oni. The being did not know what was happening.
“What are you doing?” It called out and the world trembled. Julia looked at Red T and the Anorie woman and they nodded in unison.
The surrounding planets began to consume the energy of the Oni. Red T had sent a message out into the verse to the surviving Anorie and Gordor people that to say their homeworld that they must unify and defeat the Oni upon his signal. Januk entered the dreams of the captured godor and informed them as well of the impending doom and the plan. She sent her signal as well.
The power drainage was causing the eye to shrink in size.
“You can not do this.” It sent out another pulse of energy that slightly shook the planet. They were weakening the Oni.
“Now!” Red T called out to the scientist. The scientist sent out an experimental bomb that uses the residual energy around a planet to detonate and explode every living being and planet.
The bomb was sent into the eye and the countdown began.
“8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1” The explosion was felt in tens of thousand worlds. The planet calmed with its new landscape. The people rejoiced and cheered. They defeated the Oni once again.
Suddenly, large stone and metal objects began to fall from the sky. The people scattered looking for shelter.
The explosion caused a grey hue to cover the planet. They defeated the Oni but will it have the last laugh?
