Some cultures of the human race have long sought a founded belief on an afterlife; an existence of something beyond the confines of their limited and fragile mortal flesh. Each society views the next stage a bit differently than it actually is. Some believe it to be transcendental, a life-altering ascension to knowledge and wisdom. Others believe life just stops after death; a nothingness. Those believing the enlightened theory sometimes claim visions of the afterlife, seeing love ones or supernatural beings, which for most, stem from a traumatic event of sorts. Of all the stories and folklore throughout time, the truth was very simple. Neither of those are correct. Enlightenment comes from the individual, not from the transition between realms; and there was definitely something on the other side.
There was really no difference between the Humani generis or Majaliant realms in dimensions or space, but only rather in time and perception. Humans cannot see angels, unless they want them to. That same rule applied to demons. This clouded perception allowed both to move among the humans, to guide or influence as necessary; in some cases, to witness unexplainable events.
Sometimes though, their age-old conflict becomes more than just about mankind. The war may have spawned from the birth of humans, but their distaste for each other reached far beyond.
The streaks of movement approached quicker than any known measurement of speed. The sound of them entering the atmosphere could have been perceived as a sonic boom; if humans were aware. Upon entering the stratosphere, their approach slowed a bit as they came in from the west. The nine objects fell in line behind the plane’s flight path.
Their course was swift and hidden.
Seconds from reaching the aircraft, they drew their weapons. One of them held high, a hammer. Dark clouds began to form and swirl into a frenzy in the wake of their trail.
“Steady yourself,” said Lucas.
Trusting his friend’s instincts, Joshua prepared himself. Then he saw it.
They appeared from nowhere faster than anything he had ever witnessed; coming from all around the plane. Angels, but unlike any that Joshua ever saw. He could have sworn he felt the plane vibrate from their velocity. They headed straight for the mass of demons.
As the demon charge began to pick up speed, some noticed a detachment breaking off and heading straight for them. The site of these foolish angels sparked various reactions from crazed excitement and laughter, to comments regarding the demon’s impending victory. There was only a small few from the collective who had the sense enough to be wary of this new development. Suroc was one of them.
Using sight beyond sight, he peered closer at the bold assailants. His eyes grew wide, then he began to arc away. “Retreat! Fall back!”
The division was confused, but obeyed nonetheless. His captains soared in closer as they started to break away from the pack.
“Sir, what are you doing?! This offense is punishable by torment,” said one of them.
Suroc glanced back; the captain caught his eye, then recoiled from the look.
He was afraid. “Inflixi Impetus.”
His captains now shared the same scared expression as this news began reverberating through the ranks.
They all flew faster.
The nine skimmed the surface of the plane from all sides. One even reached out with his free hand to lightly touch the smooth, aerodynamic shell. As they soared passed, the one with the long black hair made an outward hand command as he pulled his weapon, a form of a Chinese Dao, tight into his chest.
“Wreck havoc on all who remain; none are to be spared.” He eyed the legion commanders and a half smile began to form. “Melennec and the others are mine.”
What Joshua witnessed could not be adequately described. At least not in the convention of what most would consider possible by human standards. He counted nine angels in all. They charged straight into the heart of the blackness with no pause or deviation in their course. It was like the demon numbers did not matter. What happened next was utterly impossible to believe, and purely spectacular to watch.
