  • Lost?

    “What do you mean what to do with me?”

    “As gods, we have a basic obligation to listen to your request. Normally, when soul is broken, we decide what is best for then and what we do with them in our world. However, since you have regain your soul, what is you want to do in your next life? Where do you want to go? What do you want to achieve? Consider this as us Gods respecting your freewill.”

    “I would like to return to my previous world”

    As the rule states, a broken soul is not allowed back into it’s original world. However, I am whole again. Which means technically, I am able to return to my previous world. However, I heard the unexpected.

    “Unfortunately, you are not able to return to your own world. Even though the God of your world wouldn’t mind you back, but rules are rules. You are not allowed back into your own world.”

    So much for freewill. If rules states that I can’t, does that mean that it is possible now but its just because of the rule that I’m not allow to? What if… Wait. I shall not continue thinking this. They can read my thoughts. Think of other thoughts.

    “What are some of my options?”

    “You can choose to live in any of the world that we are in charged of. That includes Aopaefia’s world. That was the world where you were originally headed. It is proper that I should state it out.”

    “However, that is up to him to choose. Like I’ve said, I’ve taken a liking to him. I would like to propose for him to come to my world. He will not experience hardship nor the responsibility of the literal weight of the world.”

    “We got what we need. Why not just destroy his soul? If we can’t destroy it, we can always just trap him whowwwwwwwly. We care Gods. We can do what we want. Freewill? I see no reason to give you beast any freewill! With freewill, you people acts worst than beast. I’m willing to be one who does it. Lets kill him. Lets put that to a vote”

    Oh great. Big doggy getting angry again. Did something get triggered his hatred? Wait. Did he say vote? Does that mean that even if I choose anything, i will still be subjected to voting? If that’s the case, freewill or no freewill, the choice was never up to me.

    “Is there a choice…”

    “Is there a choice to…”

    “Yes there is. I would like to request for a intermission. As the one who was originally wants his soul, I do have the right to call for this. I would like to speak to Execell alone.”

    With a wave of her hand, a bright light appeared in-front of me. Though I know I do not have eyes, I instinctively move my hands to cover my eyes. A white box started forming on the ground, growing 3meters high and 3meters wide. She walked past me and walked into the white box. I see every strands of hair disappeared into the white box.

    Suddenly, a hand, her hand, came out of the box and signaling me to enter the white box.

    I begin to wonder, what is this but it would be rude to make her wait, so I entered the white box.

    Well, I charged in like how a player with a rugby player would to protect the ball. If it was a solid wall, at least I would be able to brace the impact. And if i fall, i wouldn’t get damaged anyway.

    For some reason, i entered, fell and injured my arm.

  • Annex 4: Nine-layered Nonago of Protection

    This is talking about a complex spell called the Nine-layered Nonago of Protection.

    It’s a spell that constantly drain mana from the caster for 913 hours (or about 39 days). This is also the reason why the caster is required to store mana into reservoirs and tanks before the spell. During the casting of spell, the user would eat plentiful and rest to save mana.

    The spell is a simple concept but the draining itself will last long. The mana will keep draining even if the user continue to sleep.

    The concept of the spell involve casting 9 consecutive nonagon, with each additional cast strengthening the one before with it’s properties. The nanogon protection in all dimensions, including underground and skies. After all 9 layer are cast

    Before the spell starts, 10 sets of items are must be present.

    • 1 Gingko tree from Argent Forest
    • 2 1000 years old ginseng
    • 3 roteus blocks
    • 4 sets of diamond, tungsten and titanium
    • 5 all cure potions
    • 6 set of elemental bottles
    • 7 voodoo dolls
    • 8 1.5liters of holy water
    • 9 full body mirrors
    • 9 vial of blood per person who is living in the mansion

    The first step is to determine the boundaries of the barrier. After determining the first barrier boundary, buffer each other layer times each with 2km away. The next step to buff each barrier with visualizer camouflage after each cast. Determining the boundaries for each cast barrier cast took 9 hours. Preparing to buff the barrier with visualizer camouflage took another 9 hours. (Total time: 18 hours)

    After the boundary is set, it will be auto cast after one is set up. The only reason why this is set up this way is due to the difficulty in gathering the materials.

    The first layer requires one sacrifice. Ginko tree from Argent Forest. The ginko tree is use as the catalyst of long life. It slows down the progress of life and prevent the death by unnatural cause. (Total time: 1 hour)

    The 2nd barrier allows the people within barrier to recover their life and mana at a faster pace. It also increase brain functioning capacity, boost immunity, and have and have better se… Never mind. This is good for people who injured themselves alot, use alot of mana, which is the caster in this case, and perfect for the doggo with the casting coach. The second layer requires 2 1000 years old ginseng. 1 to buff the first layer, the second for the 2nd layer itself. (Total time: 2 hours)

    The 3rd later requires 3 roteus block. 2 to buff the first two layer, the 3rd for the protection against physical wounds. As long as the barrier is up, no one will suffer physical damage from any cuts or punctuate wounds. Though the wounds will not happen, the pain will still be present. (Total time: 4 hours)

    The 4th barrier provides protection from any projectile. If a projectile is shot and hit the barrier, it will provide 30% chance the projectile will be ricochet and 1% chance return homing will be activate that will cause the bullet to hit the one who fired the projectile. Death to those who attacked us by projectiles. This 4th layer requires 4 sets of diamond, tungsten and titanium. The first 3 for the first 3 barriers. This layer also acts as a bomb shelter. (Total time: 8 hours)

    The 5th barrier protect against ailments and illnesses. Paralysis, poison, even headache would be not happened to the people within the protection. The 5th barrier requires 5 all cure potions, also known as panacea. 4 of it to grant properties to first 4 barrier. (Total time:16 hours)

    The 6th barrier protect the location from natural disasters that occur on earth as well as meteorite from falling and hitting us. The 6th barrier require 6 sets of the elements of the world. Each set consist of a Bottle of Blue Fire, Bottle of Ocean Water, Bottle of Sand, Bottled of Wind, Bottle of clouds and a piece of meteorite. 5 set is grant its protection properties to previous 5 barrier. The meteorite wasn’t necessary but better be safe than sorry. (Total time: 32 hours)

    The 7th barrier is to guard against curses. The first 6 voodoo doll is to grant it’s properties to the first 6 barriers. Use a curse to fight a curse. The curse will be absorb and strengthening the barrier against the particular type of curse. (Total time: 64 hours)

    The 8th barrier grants protection against spiritual attacks. 7 bottles were use to grant it’s properties to the first 7 barriers. It acts as a shield that will prevent any visual from any spiritual entry. That is ghost, ghouls, imps, succubae, angels, fairy, anything that is classified as spiritual entities will not be allowed access. (Total time: 128 hours)

    The 9th barrier protects and reflect magical attacks. It case magic redirect by reflecting the spell as well as target redirect via mirror world magic. If a spell is small in nature, it will be reflected. When the spell is large in size, mirrors will gather and absorb the spell, transfer it into the mirror world, and store the spell into a spell book grimoire, and transfer into the grimoire library. (Total time: 256 hours)

    The last item isn’t a barrier. It is used to set the people where the barrier effects would grant, and prevent the negative effect of the barrier. The blood is use as identifier for the person. Anyone apart from the people in this group can pass through the barriers. For the 3rd and 4th barrier prevent physical entry of people who are not identified. For the 7th barrier, anyone apart from the people in the barrier will suffer the curses and additional curses that are being absorbed. For the 8th barrier, if any one has a possessed object, the spirit will be exorcised. (Total time: 256 hours)

    Finally, after all the barrier is set. Compiling and compressing of the barrier occur into 9 thin layers. (Total time: 128 hours)

  • Annex 3: Ciarxfcot’s world part 1

    Ciarxfcot change in nature is due to the events of his world. This world consist of 5 main regions. The oceans of Bacsabils, the snowy mountains of Pklina, the once lush forest of Lumiasine, the skies of Populas and the volcanic islands of Ifario. The regions are named this way due to the foundation of their first king.

    When the world was created, there was no need for a king.

    This is what happened in the forest of Lumiasine.

    In the day, animals roam around the land. They befriend each other. The 6 arms gorillas helped to build cities. The rabbits help to grow vegetations. The foxes help to find berries. The sonar bald eagles helped watch over those who venture beyond the lush forest. When harm befall upon them, the eagles will communicate with their sonic waves. The worker rats dig burrows to connect the water from rivers to provide water to the fields. The beavers are researchers who help to improve the way of life. Though it was a mix of primitive life and bits of advancement. In the night, the owl guards protect the place. The bats helped to communicate information. The glow wolves and shadow wolves roam around in pairs. While the shadow wolves can move from shadows to shadow, they can lost their sense of identity if they stay in the shadow for long time. Staying in the glow wolves shadows remind the shadow wolves that they are wolves. The spider assassination squad sets up their poisoned treads at night, and keep them when it’s near day. The treads are used for fabric, after the poison is removed by flamed mongoose. Everyone in the forest do their part and they formed a wonderful ecological system.

    That is, until…

  • Issue… part 3?

    “When the soul deviates their pre-destined end, and it is unable to enter the cycle of life in their world, it is due to the damaged soul.”

    “And how is a soul damaged?”

    “When something damaged the soul, it is damage.”

    “And how is a soul damaged?”

    “There are many ways a soul can be damaged.”

    “What are…”

    *breathes in and out deeply*

    I feel like I’m being blown away again. Does he not know how a soul is destroyed and damaged? No. That’s not the case. The more likely case is that he knows the answer but he doesn’t want to share it. It is likely that he either is refusing to share, or he can’t share. This would mean that there must be a reason why he can’t share or doesn’t want to share. What are some possible reason? What would make a god fearful? What would make the info restrictive? More people die in their world? Or, their own deaths. Can God die?

    Lets say in theory. Its possible that I may have the same power or ability to do the soul shattering and would become a threat. What becomes of those which has become a threat? What is the limit of the power? Worst case scenario, if I can shatter the soul of humans, can I shatter the soul of Gods?

    There too many uncertainty and nothing much is mentioned. On the other hand, there could be too many ways for a soul to shatter, like maybe predestination is never a thing, and we chose to deviate and that itself cause the original soul’s plan to shatter? Maybe? But it would be already predestined that I made the choice and recorded in my life’s journal.

    Wait. My head hurts.

    “So do mine”

    “So do mine”

    The both of them said at the same thing at the same time

    If I can conclude that whatever action that we take in this world will not affect our soul in our world, then it must be something out of this world. Now that I can see that there are many gods in charge of many worlds, what if the reason for soul shatter was an intervention of someone from someone else’s world?

    For example, an incarnate into our world is someone from out of our world. If he manage to kill me, then technically, my soul was shattered due to a death out of our normal world system and out of our normal world predicted death time. Does this mean that, the reason why my soul is shattered is because of an influence of an incarnate.

    “Hauuter-Huorld-Inner-Huorld-theory”

    Someone spoke. A big silver fox jump in front of me, and walked infront of me. After staring at me for a while, it proceeded to sploot. After staring at me alittle longer, it spoke.

    *clears throat* “The Outer world inner world theory. Very good. It is one of a few reason why a soul can deviate from their original path. However, wouldn’t that be amended and corrected if an incarnate does appear into your world and you have interactions with them that led to your death?”

    For once, I feel like I could have an intellectual conversation with someone.

    “This is all new to me. I do not know what kind of actions can affect the change in the life’s journal. Even if there is changes, if pre-destination should correct the course. It’s like adding 1 pinch of salt into a cake. It doesn’t make the cake salty. How about 2 pinches of salt? When is the tipping point that there was a deviation?”

    “You got it wrong. Many things can affect the change, and many things can be corrected. But deviation alone doesn’t cause a person’s soul to shatter or damaged. The death of a person before they reach their appointed death time and place does. You like to give examples for your explanations. Maybe this might be easier for you to understand.”

    Is it mocking me? I can understand without any visualization!

    “This is a beautiful hourglass. I light tap might knock it abit, but even if its knocked over, it may not break. You know what happen when enough force used on the hourglass. The glass would break. The sand from the hour glass spill out. Taking the sand as the soul, it isn’t that the soul is destroy or shattered but spill and incomplete. Just like how your glass was so damaged, only a small amount of sand left.”

    “There are wars in my world. People battle for their sake of righteousness. If an incarnate decide to activate a deadly bomb and killed everyone in the battle field, doesn’t that mean that alot of soul would be damage as their deaths would be before their time, their sand spilling out of the hourglass before their time?”

    “That’s one reason why Gods of their world needs to supervise and take care of the souls that are incarnated in their world. This is to prevent an incarnate from harming the beings of their world. The God can intervene when they determine if an action would cause the soul to be damaged. Maybe the God is slacking on the job.”

    “I highly doubt that’s that case. Then why didn’t…”

    The Nine-layered Nonago of Protection! Still if the God of my world known the events of my life, why wasn’t I protected from an incarnate. The god should been watching the incarnate. It is under the god’s charge. Wait. Wait. Wait. I realized a more pressing issue.

    “If I am here, does that mean that the rest of the people in the mansion are in the same state? At the… Latus Nulilo?”

    “There are many souls there. It is possible they are there. It is possible they are not. It is also possible that they are incarnated into another world. It is possible that they there are lost in the river. They will be lost forever. Ka Ka Ka.”

    I reacted. I tried to punch the fox in front of me. But my body just slide past. Shit! I forgotten that I do not have a physical body. Still, why did I punch it. I would normally just use magic to attack it. That would been my first reaction. Is it because how reachable it is?

    “Ka ka ka! Aren’t you suppose to use your words instead of your fist? that’s the only ‘offensive’ thing you could now, so what do you have to say?”

    *Thought communication* *He is provoking you. He is a god that becomes stronger when there are anger and malice in the atmosphere.*

    “I thought you were a god, seems like you are a fox. Go lay somewhere and become food for others, or for me. I have not eaten fox meat in my life. The intellectual conversation I would want to have is with a god, not some beast. Run along now. I have no interest in you.”

    *Thought communication* *When I meant anger and malice in the atmosphere, it includes his own anger and malice.*

    The fox in front of me started to behave differently. Its eyes were getting bloody red. Its body starts to have red streaks. The number of tails it has starts increasing. As everything was becoming a disaster, a whole appeared above the creature.

    “Calm down Ciarxfcot”

    Water started gashing from the hole over the fox. It’s eye started to return to normal, tail shrunk, and the fur was pure white again.

    So the fox name is Ciarxfcot. Why does it feels familiar? Why can’t these Gods have proper names like Jonathan, Victor and Andrew?

    “We got the info that we need. It is highly likely that you were killed before your time is up. You either lost your memory or were unconscious when you died and that’s why you do not know the nature or manner of your death. The universal scopes of lie detectors didn’t detect lies from your words. You do not know who killed you. The god of your world was looking after all the incarnates in the world. The universal scopes did not detect any lie as well. This would mean that both side are saying the truth, or their version of what they believe is truth. The issue left is to decide what to do with you.”

  • Issue… Part 2?

    “The souls who are drifted here lost apart of them, and thus was removed from their world. Its like a robotic quality check. As long as the soul is complete, it passes. If it isn’t, it will be throw out. The place where you were are equivalent to a trash heap.”

    “So you are calling Execell as trash! NiHeeHee! Don’t worry! Even if Pho calls you trash, I’ll treat you as a treasure!”

    “Hmph. I don’t really care if I’m a treasure or trash. It doesn’t matter to me”

    “I can hear your inner thoughts you know”

    “Lets get back to topic Phoph”

    That girl is really like Satori.

    “Just because it is damaged, and cast out of their world doesn’t mean its the end for them. The gods of other world are able to use them for their purposes. Re-entry to their original world is not possible but entry to another is possible. And so, the gods of other worlds will repair the soul one way or another, and let the soul live in their world”

    “An apple. So it’s like an apple. When it is ripe, it will drop. However, if an earthquake happens, the apples will drop before their time. These unripe apple that are dropped are liken to the damaged soul, cast aside due to bad quality assessment and not used for normal purposes. However, unripe as it is, some have use for the unripe apples. It can be left and wait for it to be ripe before it is eaten. It can be made into apple soup and adding with other stuff like dates to make it sweet. It can be made into bitter apple pies and sugar will make it sweet. Japanese curry uses apple for the extra crunch. It can be made into apple cider vinegar. Or it can…

    “Yes, you basically get the idea. You can go on now Pho.”

    *Thoughts communication* *The rest are getting sleepy with your explanation so I cut you off. You can explain to me more if you want. We got all the time in the world. Ah. Why are you blushing? Ah. So that’s what you are thinking. Isn’t that what  [incomprehensible] called sinful thoughts?*

    “Yes. Please continue”

    What a troublesome whimsical god she is.

    “Let me carry on. You were suppose to come into my world. When you landed here, your soul was was shattered. You did not even have a body. Your soul was shattered. When you had arrived, only 3% of what you currently have. During the time where you were at the shore, Motrisxs saw your soul growing exponentially. He informed me about the situation and the possibility of a restored soul in our realm. This lead to the meeting being held.”

    “Motrisxs?”

    *Thoughts communication* *The ferryman*

    “The ‘Ferryman’. He is the first restored soul in our realm. He proceeded to stay in the realm of the Gods to deliver souls from one place to another using the connecting river. This helped us Gods immensely.”

    He was wearing the same robe that Phoph did. This means that what I saw wasn’t his true appearance? Hold up. If it meant that the ferryman was the first to be restored and the possibility of another restored soul…

    “Am I the second per…”

    “Technically, you were the fourth. The second and the third who regain their soul throw themselves overboard in the river. This caused their souls to be lost forever, in the river between worlds. When we heard of the possibility of the fourth, there was deep urgency to hold this meeting.”

    I wondered what happen to the second and third that caused them to jump off. If they were anything like me, they would want to find out more about the situation before doing anything rash. But against many gods in this place, I am reminded of the situation that I was in few moments ago, wishing for a friend, wishing for anything humane. But these aren’t important now.

    “I do not know what caused my soul to regenerate or recover or remerge to how it is now. I can’t tell you any more info that I already have. There is no evidence or historical references I can back up with. I do not know how I died.”

    “What is the last thing you remember?”

    “The last thing I remember was playing mahjong with a group of friends in Thailand within the mountainous villa. That doggo became a multibillionaire and invited his close friends stay with him so he wouldn’t be lonely. I missed that guy. I created a nine-layered barrier that prevent anyone we do not know from entering. I called it the Nine-layered Nonago of Protection. The surrounding was erected with forest illusion and memory scrambler magic was cast. Outsider of the barrier was protected by the Direwolves gang and the leader resides in the security room, monitoring the area, and preparing to summon his domain when needed. The castaway penguin worked from within the villa to sell his art and transporting them via magic teleportation tube to a post office that I’m wizard network is affiliated to. The nerdy purple fox works as a tour guide in the FullDiveWebNetworkCocoons, from her room. It’s a place where… You know what, you guys probably won’t understand even if I were to explain. The cafe owner teleport to work daily using the magic circle from the room to the cafe. The white…”

    *Breathes Deeply*

    “Hurry get to the point!”

    “The last thing I remember was winning a really big hand in a game of mahjong. Mahjong is a game where… Explaining what mahjong is will take alot of them, so I’ll skip it… As we were playing, the first barrier was broke. I don’t remember anything after that. If you say a soul can be shattered, you would need to explain how a soul can be shattered.”

  • Issue?

    “So what’s the issue?”

    During the emotional outburst by Spectrum earlier, everyone was quiet. Now that the issue is brought back on the table, the other Gods starts to chatter. Maybe there’s a way to understand what they are saying. Everyone spoke, or rather, made noises in different language but yet it is understandable by each other. Do they have thought communication like the ferry man?

    Wait. Where is the ferry man?

    Why is he standing at the entrance?

    It is now that I realize. Thought communication could not be the case as they made noises earlier. Unlike the ferry man, who clearly spoke into my mind, they made some chatter. So there should be a device or ability that cause them to understand each other, something like that item from that robot cat cartoon.

    It brings me to another question. Why are some able to communicate with me and others are unable to? Are they unable to? Or are they unwilling to?

    “hljödhr!”

    One word from Phoph was enough to shake the cave. The phrase thunderous roar is perfect way to describe Phoph’s action. I feel my core, my soul, shaking from the vibrations.

    The aftermath of the shout caused everyone’s chatter to cease. Phoph stepped out from where he was. He proceeded to remove his robe. As though defying physics, his stature grew. The robe that should not have cover the entirety of his body. There are a few possibility.

    • He is portraying an illusion to make himself looked big.
    • I am under a psychic attack that cause my perception to be distorted
    • This is the aftermath from the vibration attack. As my body is dizzy, my perception of a person size is affected
    • Shapeshifter. He has the ability to shapeshift into whatever form he wants.
    • Gigantification spell that modify his size.
    • It is a magic robe that cause a person’s identify features to be hidden and remain as anonymous as possible.

    “Close but that’s right. And now and this is his normal size.”

    As I hear Iso’s words, I believed. This giant in front of me. Before he grew bigger I caught glimpse of his outlook. He has the tusk of a warhog, horns of a bull, clad in red armor, with powerful stomps liken to an elephant, no, with the fur that he has, its closer to a mammoth, and holding a strange weapon. The length of a spear, if the spear was more than 100 meters tall, and the end splits into many different brunches. I am unable to see what how many branches are there or the functionality, but if I am back in my body, I would pee in fear of what’s in front of me.

    “Without further interruption, lets begin the investigation.”

  • Annex 2: Aopaefia’s world part 1

    Have you ever seen a world where sea is so clean, you can see the sand? In the magical world where Aopaefia rule, there is no life in the ocean. In addition, there will always be fix amount of seawater. When sea water was removed from the sea, the volume will be restored. When any form of matter is added to the sea, the sea’s volume will reduced. Why is that so? Its as though the ocean is living.

    Well. It is. Goddess Aopaefia blessed the ocean to come to life. The ocean is now a living being. Aopaefia named the ocean Purificean, blessing with capability to

    • Purification
    • Spatial control
    • Galaxy level dimension storage space
    • Absolute obedience
    • Mental attack nullification
    • Magical control nullification
    • Friend of life.

    The water self reproduce itself and store additional volume in a void storage. Aquatic life are stored within the ocean in another dimension where they can survive and reproduce as a farm. When people see the sea, they will know the great things Appaefia done, as someone who provide water and food to those who respect and pray to her.

    Over centuries, Purificean provides waves and safe journey for the people who travelled by the sea. When prayed for, aquatic life were taken out of the dimension and given to the people for their nourishment at sea. Purificean transport anyone who fallen aboard back to their ship. In addition, it also purified any waste that is thrown into it. Some includes used dracocore, manufactured potion by-products, biological wastes, it will be purified by removal, isolation, breaking down, heating, and dissolving.

    Because the sea has a mind on its own, it continue to help living beings in the world.

  • Annex 1: Universal Soul System

    Every being that has intelligence has a soul. It is not something that is limited to just humanoid creatures. Some worlds contain monsters which has a soul. They are not just mindless beast who acts upon instincts. Some worlds contain animals that has a soul. The fundamental is the capability to understand language, able to communicate with another by language. Almost everything that has life had a soul.

    Because each world define soul differently, the souls that died retain in their individual worlds as they await their next life within the world.

    When a soul is damage or destroyed, it lost its rights to remain in the world where they belong.

    With a broken soul, much like a broken circuit, it would not be able to start up unless it is fixed.

    There are few known ways to fix a soul.

    The first way is for a God to accept the person to the new world. By letting the person live in the new world, they recover a portion of the lost soul slowly, much liken to cells regeneration. With each incarnation, their soul is filled slowly with the properties of the new world, and they would live like normal in the new world. Some Gods let the person live as livestock, much like a soulless person. Some let them live as normal creatures but they would have defects. Mental illness, physical defects are signs of poor soul prior to reincarnation. Though this is known to the gods, the people do not know that. Thats why, regardless of animals or beings, having a defect, can cause the being to be outcasted. Due to this reason, gods who accepted the people into their world, needs to should responsible for the soul until it is restored. Cells regeneration can have cancerous cells. Soul regeneration has its impurities. A soul can be regenerated in a different manner and so, a regenerated soul is always different from it’s original. This difference will affect a person’s mentality, understanding, and character. We will go deeper into that another time.

    The second way to fix a soul would require an intervention from the God of the world. Imagine a beautiful vase. It is than smash into pieces. To repair it, you need to find the broken pieces and mend it together. Even so, mending it will still show where the cracks are. Leaving the stands. The God would find the parts and mend it together. This will allow the person’s soul to be as close to the original as possible. It might be easier to explain with the term kintsugi. The pot became whole again, with abit of blessing from the God of the world.

    The third way to fix a soul is for the God of the world to fill part of themselves into the soul, and be part of their lives. They became living vessels for the God, until they die and with each reincarnation, they continue to become vessel of God, nearing the voice of the God, and at times, becoming the host for the God in a spatial and temporal world. The percentage of the soul the goddess fill, the more control they have when the god enter the vessel. However, when vessel is too compatible, the vessel gains some residual knowledge and power of the world when the God leave the vessel.

    Execell’s soul was fixed via an unknown method.

  • Facade?

    “What do you mean you shouldn’t have accepted me into your world? If I was suppose to go to your world, what am I doing here?” Though I asked the question, I already have a thought in my mind. If I expressed it, or dwell on it, they will be able to read my thoughts again.

    “I have no reason to tell you why I chose you.”

    “Miss Aopaefia. Wouldn’t a God, like you, hear a request from someone who was suppose to be a member of your world? Isn’t that the purpose of a God? To hear the prayers of people who asked, and answer them appropriately?”

    “Don’t assume we have gender. I may call myself a great goddess but we gods do not have a gender. The concept of gender exist your world and a few others. Most worlds evolved past the need for gender association.”

    This info is redundant.

    “Some has both gender. Some worlds do not have gender differentiation part. There are many other ways new life can exist apart from the traditional way.”

    When will she get to the point?

    “Some world reproduce by blood extraction and blend them together in an artificial incubator. This allow more species of life to be born. Some worlds allow diffusion of their reproduction cells to another body.”

    Is she deliberately ignoring me even though she can read my mind?

    “We gods don’t really have a reason or purpose to choose anyone. However, some gods have preference of the kind of people they want in their world. We each were offered a part of a person’s good attributes and bad attributes. The fundamental duty of a God is to make their world a better place. However, ‘better’ is relative to each of us. Aopaefia’s world has concept of magic and sorcery. While many world advance in technology, Aopaefia world focus on mystic arts, logical magic, spirits magic and …”

    “Enough. I’ll continue from here.”

    Isophoic turned to me and gave me a wink. I couldn’t contain my thought on how cute she is and am thankful that she is on my side. Maybe going to her world isn’t that bad idea.

    “It’s Iso. My chosen ones can call me Iso. Even if you are thinking about me, I would like you to call me Iso.”

    “Are you listening?”

    My attention was brought back to the Spectrum. She sounded pissed.

    “I chose you as you are good with magic. That’s the only reason.”

    “And?”

    “I don’t need to explain about how I was going to manage my world.”

    “Face it. You were going to use him for some grand plan of yours. I see him favorably and will treat him well in my world. If you are not willing to share your plan, there shouldn’t be any objection if it doesn’t matter to you.”

    Iso turns out to be kinder than I thought. In my world, if something that benefit you, you would do all you can to have it. That’s what most people does. If Iso didn’t edge Spectrum on, I would have gone over to Iso’s world without a doubt. A life being blessed by the god of the world isn’t so bad. Nonetheless, Iso knows that there would be a chance if I pitied Spectrum here, I might go along with her. Iso still took that chance. She really is a goddess. As I stared at Aopaefia, I let this thought play in my head. Spectrum, Spectrum, since you can read my mind, you should probably know too. If I, a human can understand, surely you, a god, could.

    It looks like my message gotten through to her, she decided to speak.

    “My world, has advanced to the point where there’s no new life.”

    HUH?

    “The people in my world does not die. Centuries ago, there was a parasitic disease that sapped the life of the people via their life aura. I sent a revelation to the my devotee, a new spell that would act as a barrier to prevent the life aura from getting sapped. This way parasite will die out. My messenger changed the spell. Instead of protecting the life aura, it protect the soul. As people’s physical body dies, they begin to live as spirits.”

    HA! The irony. They live as spirits.

    “I sent another of my devotee to spread the true spell however, it was too late. Though the plan was to kill 95% of the world did succeed, the soul of the people still linger in the physical world. As spirits, they begin to live in objects. As they are spirits, they are unable to use magic. They haunted the living and demanded them to build a physical body. Over time, the number of living were reduced and new born are fewer.”

    In my world, if a person is growing up in a non-ideal environment, they would have suffered mental health issue, which would led them to have more physical and social issues. A healthy soul resides in a healthy mind of a healthy body. If they are not able to grow up well, they will not be able to live well, and much less reproduce.

    “With souls that never die, and lesser life being born, the world’s population dropped. New magic begin to come to a halt as the demand for soul transfer techniques, replication and never-decaying took so much emphasis. It grew to the point where spells learning and research are lost. By pressing a button while providing mana, a new body is created. I have no messenger left in the world. A world who forgotten about their god will reach its doom.”

    I looked down and started thinking. More so than thinking, I felt sorry for Spectrum. Some great goddess she is. A great goddess would not let it happen. She still acts almighty even now. She still acts almighty even now. She still… Is she really acting mighty? It must be hard for her to admit all these. As I looked up, I noticed her veil. Ah. Is that why she wore a veil? Was she crying the whole time? Was she worried the whole time? It doesn’t make sense though. Ah, I see. I see now. She focused on talking about how other ways other world reproduced. She must have been thinking ways to bring new life to her world. No. She was looking for ways to save her world. If that’s the case, why does she said she shouldn’t had accepted me in the world?

    “There are two issues here. The first issue relates to why we are having this meeting. The second issue is she realized there are many better world out there for you to be reborn in. She did consider giving you to me.”

    “What can I do to help?”

    I do sort of have an idea what she wants me to do. “I have no messenger left in the world.” I’ll likely be her messenger. Her prophet in a sense. One that tells people of the one who sent me. In the sense, she will be with me and blessed me as well. Through me, her world will be save. Even though I do not know how am I suppose to do that, or if I can do that. The fundamental issue of her world would be to release the soul. As for the method, she would have a plan. Sounds like a pain though.

    “As the head investigator, I’ve let the conversation gone on for a while. It’s time to get back to the topic we have on hand, the first issue which Isophoic speak off.”

  • … !!! ???

    “I would like to know where or what is this place before knowing why am I here.”

    “I would like to know how I get here as well.”

    “Execell please”

    That tone. That voice came from behind me. I thought it was that ol’ dog. As irritating as he was, I missed him right now. In this land, in this place, a familiar face, no, a human-looking creature would be helpful.

    “Execell please. Listen to the chosen investigators and what they have to say.”

    I recalled the times where even against impossible odds, staying cool is the only way to proceed, be it in mahjong, or learning difficult spells, or handling troublesome people. Things I learnt from that dog, the castaway penguin, and energy vampire. I’m all alone now. How are they now? I want to see them again.

    “You are most definitely dead. This much is certain. Welcome to the realm of the gods. This location is called Spelunca foederis, a place where the gods of the different worlds meet for reporting of any abnormality. I am the head investigator for this meeting.”

    “Investigator?” I wondered. If this, creature, is an investigator, what is it investigating? This meeting? Does that mean each meeting has different investigator? Wait. Something is wrong. The word it used. Abnormality. Am I an abnormality? The timing of this meeting happen to be too coincidental. Is my presence here an abnormality? Or is it something else?

    “Some of us can read your thoughts. Some of us here in the meeting are chosen to be in this investigation team due to our ability to the thoughts of others. I swear, upon my own name, you are giving us headaches by thinking so many questions at one go.”

    “I’m sorry for reading your thoughts. Aopaefia is”

    “Great Goddess Aopaefia Laydia.”

    The goddess who was speaking before stood up, fold her arms and said

    “Aopaefia is right. I don’t mean to read your thoughts. I can tell. You are as confused in this matter. To answer your questions, yes. You are an abnormality. But to explain why you are an abnormality, there’s a need to explain what is considered normal.

    Great goddess Aopaefia Laydia.

    It seems like title and respect are a thing in every world. There are people who called themselves king of a country, head of a famous cooperation, an idol. How does one differentiate themselves as great among being god of individual worlds? The population of their world? The lifespan of the citizens? Regardless of their measurement, that is beyond me.

    As all I see in front of me, is a harpy-like creature. One with four long pigtails, with an eye symbol that acts like an hair tie at the end of each pigtail, hair scaling from blue to green to yellow to orange, till her waist. She wore a veil to cover her face, and a yellow kimono with an fruit I’ve never seen before. It looks like a slice of tangerine, but the outer skin is aquamarine, but flesh is the appearance of lime. Maybe her taste of fashion is great, but I do not see how great she is. I do not like how she look down on others and speak in an high and mighty tone. I might prefer the bunny girl, the one who stood up against Aopaefia.

    Even though she’s small and soft spoken, she is not unreasonable. She respects others when respect is needed and doesn’t demand it. Her looks. I’ve met many bunny girls before, but she is by far the beautiful among them all. Her ears moved from left to right and I could see her light blue fur. Her long wavy artic blue hair that reaches her hips region with three Monarch butterfly hair pin located at the back. One of it is a regular monarch butterfly, another is a velvet in color the last one in cerulean. Her eyes were liken to Black Carborundum, where even though her eyes were black, there were some light refractory colors as she moves around. Her yellow ball dress compliment her slender figure. Even though you can see the fur on her arms and legs, I can see that those who are into furry worshiping her as their goddess.

    !!!

    Right. They can hear my thoughts. And i felt a glare fr

    “The people in my world called me Goddess Iso. You can call me Iso. If you were to reincarnate into my world, I’ll give you my blessing and let you communicate with me whenever you wish.”

    “I’ve taken a liking to this one. He’s mine.”

    Murmurs were heard across the cave.

    “Isophoic, Aopaefia, lets get back to the matter at hand. Execell. You were not meant to die yet. In your life’s journal, it is recorded that you were meant to die on an later date and your soul would be contain within your world.”

    I died before my time? How? What does that mean? Does this mean that predestination is a thing? If I was given a choice between A and B, it was already predetermined what I will choose? But what does it mean that I was meant to died a later date. My soul is now in another world?

    “When a soul died before their set time, the souls escape from their world and arrived at Litus Nihilo. Gods who are looking to take new soul into their world will look at the person’s life journal before they died, and consider if they would want to take a lifeless soul into their world. If they were to consider, the ferryman will bring the soul from Litus Nihilo to the respective god’s world by the Flumine Inter Mundos. However, there are issues.”

    So I’m here now, because I died before my set time. That thinking is wrong. If this was the case, I would be directly transported to another god and not in this cave. I wasn’t transported to another god’s world, but in this cave. I looked at the ferryman. Even with his his robe and hood on, I can feel his gaze. Does that mean something in between?

    “As their life is cut short, the soul maturity is cut short. Reincarnating into another world doesn’t mean they will gain life again. You have stillborn infants in your world without any medical reasons. The soul will undergo the cycle of life and death before it becomes mature again to have a proper life again. Even if it does gain life, some are born with mental disabilities.”

    Does this mean that the reason why more and more still births and mental disabilities are caused by the god of my world taking in souls, and waiting for the souls to repair itself like liver? Wait, it doesn’t explain why am I here? And who is the god of my world?

    “STOP THINKING.”

    “I HAVE TO LISTEN TO HIS BORING EXPLAINTION AND YOU THINKING AT EVERYTHING HE SAID. “

    “I shouldn’t have accepted you into my world.”
