Stepping from a shadow, Sabel arrived at their former home. With the darkness of the blight gone she felt her strength slowly returning. It was time for her family to take back the mountain that had been their home for centuries. All three members of her family left plus herself, it would allow her to set up memorials to her fallen siblings and summon the worthy to take their place. Even if she had to do it all herself, Caelum will be freed from the taint and the dark memories. Sliding in the grass Sabel sat down and sent souls calling to her remaining family to give them the opportunity to join her. She sent laughing children to tell everyone her family what she was planning to do.
Her translucent hands curled around her knees, Sabel rested her head on her knees and fell asleep waiting for a response to her summons. Her hooded figure dripped inky blackness, her hair blending with the browned grass. She spoke to her other self, she knew what happened in the alternate future. That version of her self was as real to her as her own self. If she focused she could merge her selves, she was present in all times as an ever present self. She existed in the past, present, and probably in the future but couldn't go back and forth between them like her father could. Her alternate selves and she existed together.
In that future her life was full and in this world she was alone. Her family was the only thing she had left, it was important to her to reclaim the mountain. Her mind sank into dreams the last time she was last in Caelum and the last of her sister's pretty Adora turned into the mad Maleficent who died sacrificing everything for power. Sabel was one of the last two goddesses. Dark power swirled around the sleeping form of death, her non beating heart was near to breaking. Her focus on claiming everything they had lost would help her heal. Finding the need to be there for her family required Sabel to respond quickly and delay her own loss and pain until everything was over.
Lost in darkness Sable dreamed of standing in the center of the storm that threatened to rip her family and world apart. She was forced to watch as everything she tries fails to help. Doubts eat at her soul and told her how much it hurt to realize that she would walk this world alone. The gods had finally met their match and she had no hope to fix her family. She wished that she had throw herself into the breech, maybe if she had tried to consume the blight and take it to be with her alone in a black hole. Sabel wondered if that would have worked, they would be trapped for ever in a continuous cycle of death feeding on itself. Death would have been forever trapped by the draining power of the blight. Instead War and Love had given of themselves to end the blight and Sabel was left alone... she questioned every decision she had ever made. Her past stretched back into the eons, she had so much to be regretful for.. If only she had really ended Adora when she had allowed her sister to escape, the rest of her family would still be alive. If only she had hunted down the hunter of her family sooner, if she had only done...something! Rather than just watching and waiting, she should have given everything to make sure no one would ever hurt her family no matter who it was.
If she had asked for help when she had felt her power being drained by the blight, Sabel regretted that she had waited so long. She wondered if she could have changed anything, so many had died... she had reaped many and lost many more because she hadn't been fast enough or strong enough. It was hard not to have the answers, Sabel had hailed everyone and she wasn't sure of how to recover. To be the silent peace wan't good enough, not anymore but what was her next move. Her underlying guilt could eat her alive if she wasn't careful.
