Harpies on the Loose
I ran forward to catch Josh.
"Josh! Are you okay?" I asked, already knowing the answer. I pulled out a laser rifle that I made myself. I cocked it, and pointed it in every direction.
Foolish legacy…a seductive female voice whispered in my head. I own this dimension…and this demititan's soul, now…come claim it.
"WHO ARE YOU?!" I shouted, and my teammates stared at me like I was a freak. I must've seemed like one to them. They couldn't hear it…my power was magical, not genetic, like their's.
I sense the power of Nagar is strong within you. This would make you a fellow spirit of nature, young one. I will grant you one thing: information. I am nearby, you will be able to sense me. You may call me Erised…
I stood, and felt pain in my hands. I had clenched my fists so hard they were bleeding, and picked up my laser rifle. I pointed it at one of my hands, and set it on "burn". It blasted my hand, which burned through most of the skin layers and charred the flesh black. I grinned now that the skin on my hand was dead, and shed it like a snake. A new, perfectly unscathed hand was underneath. I repeated the proccess with my other hand, and laughed.
"Guys, Josh's soul was stolen. I know where it is, so you can follow me to get it back. What do we do with his body…?" I said.
"Hmm...so he's dead, right?" Jack asked.
"Yeah, technically. Why?" I answered.
Jack kicked Josh's body so hard that he flew fifty feet into the lake and sunk like a rock.
"…" was a team reaction to that action.
"So, let's go get Josh's soul!" Jack said, all to cheerily.
We walked down the cave, and, for whatever reason, I just could feel where the offender was. I walked down one of the forks, and quickly came to another, then another, then another. Each time, I knew where Erised is. We eventually came to two GIANT emerald doors. I could vaguely see through them, and I sent a snake at it, but it vanished before reaching it. "My powers ain't working. You guys wanna try?" I said.
Jack shot lightning at it, but the same effect happened. Everyone tried, but all attacks vanished.
Finally, I just got angry. I was tired, pissed off, hungry, thirsty and overall strained. But I was motivated. I took Jack's bow, charged the door, and slammed the bow against it. The bow shattered, and the door just vibrated a little.
"AHHH! DAMN MOTHER F***ING DOOR CAN JUST GO TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET! I DON'T CARE IF THAT ERISED EATS MY FAMILY RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME AND S**** THEM OUT HER SORRY BUTCHEEKS! I JUST WANT TO GET A FRIEND BACK, BUT THIS B****** DOOR WON'T LET US THE F*** THROUGH!!! DIE, DOOR!" I screamed.
The door then dented and cracked.
"So you can take our attacks, but not our harsh words?" I muttered, and turned back at it.
"F***ING ***HOLE OF A B****** DOOR!!! ALL YOU ARE IS A LAME PLACEHOLDER THAT'S ALWAYS IN THE WAY OF EVERYTHING!!! DID ERISED MAKE YOU?! CAUSE IF SHE DID, SHE FAILED!!! EPICALLY!!! YOU SON OF A B****!!!"
The door then cracked down the middle, and slid open. I was about to cheer, and then the door exploded.
