Oh Isohel,Oh Isohel. THE VOICE FROM ABOVE
A creepy prayer and a race to survive . This is what my main character Sirena faces in this 3rd scene of my 13th chapter . Yup . I’m not finished quite yet with the chapter but I ‘m getting there and it feels great .
So all last week and the week before I had writers block( you can read more about that in the post WRITERS BLOCK IN THE 13TH CHAPTER. And as you know writers block is not great tohave or let alone healthy . But I managed to pull through for now. I got a lot written as far as the scene goes.
The scene that I finished is called This Shiny Relic ; Safyral . It’s not a new scene as it was in my 1st draft . The only difference is that I switched it around where it is in a new chapter and I added Sirena’s friend Eli to the scene.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS SCENE ?
Scene summary :
In the last scene Sirena had to make a choice to run from the werewolves . So she ran . In this scene she comes back to save her friend Eli but is suddenly approached by her mother’s fiancé Anthony.
Anthony a doctor in the town is really not who he appears to be but in fact a Castus Healer werewolf Hunter . He tells Sirena he didn’t know at first she was a werewolf but then realized that she was one after she became attracted to the a shiny relic called a safyral that was hidden away in his desk in a previous scene.
He then attacks her with the Safyral telling her that he will try to save her from being a beast so her mother, him , Sirena and her sister can all be a proper family .
WHAT IS THE SHINY RELIC CALLED A SAFYRAL?
The shiny relic called a safyral; the sword of burning hearts, a healing dagger that has been blessed to cut through the stomach which is poisonous to the caninruh after it has been blessed. is a dagger sword that when blessed is used to exorcise or cut out the heart of the werewolf in order to heal them so they will be able to be mortal.
WHAT IS A CASTUS HEALER WEREWOLF HUNTER?
Are usually natural healers and exorcist priest who believe in curing the caninruh of their evil spirits by cutting out the heart, through their stomach in order to cure them. Afterwards they sow the stomach up. They live and hunt in the FOREST mountainous regions of RED SILVA MOUNTAIN . They are perceptive and possess very strong tracking skill , using the luring, and calling method of hunting and usually The CASTUS men are the only ones who can perform the exorcism and the woman are usually the ones who trap and hunt the caninruh. At the Castus ceremony they say a prayer and bless the dagger sword and the soul.
WHAT IS THE CASTUS PRAYER ?
The castus prayer to bless the Safyral relic is called THE VOICE OF ABOVE . This is the prayer:
” Oh Isohel,Oh Isohel. THE VOICE FROM ABOVE .I offer you this reaping. This cutting, this oath of banishment from evil by the Safyral, the sword of burning hearts so you can deliver a rebirth of a fallen messenger and finally grant us salvation for this weak one. oh Isohel, cut, bless, curse and cast away the beast within this weak soul! Throw it upon the Rigel and Star of Eridu. Eridu , oh celestrial Isohel . I summon you and all the father and mother Isohels. All the celestial forces of Eridani. All the travlers of time itself. Arcus Auroria , PSI Tau. Ori . from Valgrind to the realms of Camara. Pulṓn. the sanctums of Eridanus.Grant salvation ! Banish this Evil! Oh celestial Isohel Eridu benedico maledire sacrum dominus. Oh Isohel,Oh Isohel. THE VOICE FROM ABOVE.”
I do not necessarily put the prayer within this particular scene but I do in the next and briefly in a scene in the upcoming chapters.
Anthony is the only Castus that the reader will see through this first novel and I will continue to explore the Castus society throughout future novels between Sirena and the other characters.
As for whether Sirena will survive in this scene.? Well yes of course or there will not be a book . The real question is how and that is what I continue to explore in the next scene of this chapter .
