Tamer of madness
The boy who took the devils hand
The boy fell to the ground with his blood stained rags and his once black hair which was now covered in blood and mud, it elegantly hovered through the air as he came crashing down. He was completely and utterly defeated. No matter how hard he fought the outcome would remain the same and he knew it.
The boy slowly turned onto his back as his whole body ached, but most of all his heart hurt with such pain and sorrow. At that moment nothing else seemed to matter. I'm powerless he thought to himself as he looked up with his dark black eyes at the red and bleeding sky.
He smelt nothing but the stench of death and burning flesh that travelled with the strong wind that now surrounded him; he felt nothing but pain and the heat of the flames that were consuming his world. He watched in amazement as the smoke rose from the flames towards the crimson red moon. It was as if the skies themselves were covered in the blood of his people.
He slowly listened to the flames and to the buildings that fell in the distance. This is my end the boy thought with comfort and sadness. The boy knew that this day would come; he had always known that one day something like this would happen.
In the end this universe was nothing but a vast and dark hell, a horrific place where even children had the terrible eyes of murders. In a universe where there is only pointless war after pointless war… how could he even dream of a haven in a place like this?
He was finally happy to be done with this realm were only the unbelievably strong could hide and run.
"Is that all you have child? Did you not just watch me slaughter your world? Did your family, your loved ones mean so little?" The creature said in his demonic voice which once again reminded the boy that he was not alone.
I came into this world with nothing… now ill leave without even doing anything. He thought to himself as he slowly forced himself to his knees.
The boy slowly took his eyes off of the crimson coloured sky and looked into the pit of darkness that stood before him. He watched as the darkness around him swirled and slowly came together until finally it once again resembled a human.
Slowly the darkness grew flesh and bone until finally the monster completed its transformation. The boy never believed in the story of men who had tamed darkness, but now he didn't just believe, he knew, for a tamer of darkness now stood before him.
The monster that was in human form looked so beautiful in that moment, the boy couldn't help but be fascinated, fascinated with this creature that now stood before him. This creature that now looked down at him with its yellow and swirling demonic eyes that were filled with unimaginable madness.
This demon that smiled with such joy and such madness, its teeth seemed so large and sharp that the boy wouldn't be surprised if they could bite through pure bone. Surrounded with a background of death and sorrow.
The creature stood strong and proud with his pure red clothing, it was red all the way from his charcoal suit to his lather riding boots. Even up to his cravat, to his long red duster. Its long and dark black hair danced with the burning wind.
Is this what it means to kneel before a god? A creature that can chooses who lives and who dies… a creature that can punish all that disobey its will, a creature who's very presence can maker a horrific field of death like this seem so… beautiful "Are you god?"
The boy asked in a horsed and weak voice, "Ha.. haha… BUHAHAHAHAHAHA…" the boy continued to watch the creature, fascination by its captivating eyes that now showed such humour, such demonic power.
Its smile grew wider and madder as it once again stared down at the boy, making the child feel as if his soul itself was exposed. The creature seemed so thin and compact and its large height made it seem even godlier then it already was.
"GOD! HAHAHAHAHA… no child. I am no god; I am that which gives god purpose, just as he too gives me purpose." the creature said with a humour and an almost all knowing demonic voice.
The boy put everything he possible could into his legs, he wanted to stand but it was no use. His body wouldn't listen to him, instead his body stayed completely still, prostrating itself before this creature, this proud and strong demon.
I want it… I want to stand; I don't want to stay down here… I want to rise… I want to reach him. I want to know he's real. I have to touch him. The boy said as he stared at the demons beautiful eyes and its demonic and captivating smile, the madness that they emitted were almost bewitchingly beautiful.
I want power! He thought to himself right before the creature, the demonic like man that stood before him spoke with an amusement the boy couldn't possible comprehend. "Someone once asked me. "What is the madness you seek?" tell me child, what is the madness that you seek?"
The creature asked with its enticing voice that sent chills through the boy's body, "The madness I seek?" the boy asked, confused by the question. What madness is there besides madness itself? He thought as he continued to watch the demons bewitching and swirling eyes.
"Its simple child, what is it that you seek more than any other? Is it power? Love? Freedom? Courage? What is the madness that you seek the most?" the demon asked as the boy slowly felt the demons madness invade his body.
What do I seek? I am nothing; there is nothing in this realm for me. Yet still I want to stand, I want to live… that's right. There are others like me… I want to… "Change… I seek change… the power to change… this realm. This… hell"
"Hahahahahahahaha…" the demon laughed as it held onto its sides and its entire thin yet strong body vibrated violently. Then suddenly it stoped and once again it stood strong and tall before him.
"I shall grant your desire. Take my hand and accept the madness. The madness of order!" the creature said with its bewitching demonic voice as it slowly reached out its hand towards the boy.
The madness of order? The boy tried with all his might to move his arm, he wanted to take the demons hand no matter what. As he continued to try, he continued to fail, what he wanted laid right before him, just an arms reach away and he couldn't even touch it.
The boy once again looked into the demons demonic and maddening eyes, "I will give you the power to stand" a voice said within the child's mind and as he stared into those yellow and swirling eyes he felt power slowly serge through him.
Before the child even knew it, he had done it… he had taken the devils hand. The words that would forever haunt him. "Our power. Our very existence shall drive men to madness!"
Two hundred and fifty four years later
The boy had long ago become a great and powerful man, now he sat on his throne like the king he was raised to be. He sat on his metallic throne in the command room of the mother ship of the biggest pirate fleet the galaxy had ever known.
"Captain we have arrived" the forty three year old man said from the bottom of the five steps that lead up to his throne. The man pointed towards the giant window with his bony finger as he smiled with his rotten and black teeth.
The boy had long ago became a powerful and feared man, he was now known as "The Devourer of Kings" a demonic smile spread over his handsome and rugged face as he looked straight ahead and out the command window.
That's were he saw it, past the many ships and vessels that surrounded his mother ship was a planet. A planet which he would take, a planet were his legacy would begin, Finally… its time.
Suddenly his deep black eyes opened wide with anticipation and bloodlust, "This is where it begins boys! This is where our empire shall be born! Tell the men to descend, descend as fast as we can, even if the engine blows don't stop… I can taste. Tell me… can you taste there blood!"
He shouted as his long black hair slid down his shoulders and his strong and impacted muscles tightened with eagerness., "YEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHH!" his men shouted as all his past battle wounds that covered his chest ached with anticipation.
His smile grew wider and madder as they got closer and closer towards the planet, yes. It begins now. Nothing will stop me now! he thought right before he began to laugh with madness, "MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…"
His maddening laugh vibrated throughout the halls of his main ship which was as large as three entire cities' and was located at the very centre of his fleet. Other then his commanding vessel, his fleet was made up of forty seven mother ships that were as big as city's and were positioned around the commanding ship.
Then there were the three hundred and eight cruise ships that were long ranged attack vessels and where stationed around the mother ships. On top of that there were another eight hundred and four ships know as holders, that held eight small fighter ships each, which were all stationed at the very end of the fleet.
These were just some of the ships he had at his command and every last one of them were now headed towards the highly populated planet. Every last one of his men were shaking with anticipation, every single one of them barley managing to contain their bloodlust.
But he, there captain, there master, the so called "Devourer of Kings" continued to shake violently as he tried to contain himself, the man he would fight today was known and feared as "The Eternal Dragon"
A man who was said to have never lost a single battle. A man who was known throughout the galaxy for his unbelievable strength and immortality. Show me! He thought to himself as his blood boiled with excitement as vessels began to rise from the planet in an attempt to stop his fleet.
Show me just how strong an immortal is! He shouted in his head as his eyes opened with madness. "Attack! Descend upon there planet like a plague and purge them all from my sight"
"Eternal Dragon... your blood is mine"
The battle raged on for sixteen hellish days, finally the planet was theirs. The Devourer Of Kings, the Capitan of one of the greatest pirate fleets ever seen. Stood upon a mountain of mutilated corpses.
Every part of him was soaked in blood, his bloodlust was finely sated, he grinned with utter ecstasy. The fight he had had, the battle he had witnessed, gave him such joy and pleasure, finally its time.
He stood at the peak of the mountain that was made up from the corpses of the many men, women and children that had lived upon this world and held up his reward. He held the decapitated head of the Infernal Dragon high up in the air for all to see as he once again laughed with such madness that it brought chills to all those that heard it.
"Muhahahahahahahaha!" and as he laughed and held the head up high, from his position on top of one of the many mountains of corpses, his men rejoiced and screamed with joy.
And so the two hundred and eighty seven million human beings, who had lived on that planet, were wiped out and burned, along with their homes, history, their entire civilization was burned into nothingness. Their world would now be called, the "Pirates Summit."
From that day forth, a new age had come into that dark and horrifying galaxy, the age of "The Devourer of Worlds"
And just like that a hundred and thirty six years went by... and so began the divine war of the five demonic gods.
