failed deity

“This .. is probably a .. weird .. awkward moment for me to come here and talk to ya especially since.. I don’t come around often. But please, we need your help and I think you are the only one who can help us now. Eddie is missing, he disappeared, started .. a reset he can’t seem to come back from. A clock was involved so its not like a normal reset, I saw that .. he was trapped somewhere.” Edgar feels hesitant. 

“I .. feel lost without him. Everyone does. There are so many people hurt without him. So .. I’m coming to you, to ask you, please can you bring him to us. From the start?”

The small white deity looked towards Edgar. They could feel the compassion in the request, and would offer it to him. Magic around the area began to be pulled in, it felt warm and calm. Edgar watched feeling his soul pounding becoming part of it. The deity’s entire body started to glow with the soft warm light, and a soul emerged. It gently floated down into the outstretched hands.

The deity was rocking their arms, until the form of the soul took forth into that of a tiny body. They then held their hands out, presenting the young one to Edgar. 

“Ah, another baby I -” Edgar cut off his rudeness, he got Eddie back. That was them right there in the deity’s arms. “Is he .. going to be like this for a while?” Edgar saw the deity shake their head, and then cradles the infant in his arms. “Thank you, Mother.” Edgar takes the infant with him, leaving the realm. 

Much as I would love love love to have a new chapter of anything to give you, I just got out of a two hour event meeting that basically broke down to TL:DR- We’re f*cked, and I’m a wildly incomprehensible mess. (Because it’s not really my event, but I feel responsible anyway.)

So of course to fix this I just mainlined a bag of chips and now I’m going to bowling, because I bowl better when I’m angry/stressed/freaking out about work.
