my maple storey fan fic chapter 7
After much distraction by juvenile humans dressed in cheap, crude approximations of branded characters, I finally reach the dwelling in which Susie rests. As I approach the door, I realize that it is possible that one who is not that which I seek will be the one I encounter behind it. I must seek an alternative method of entry. I exited the initial dwelling via the window, so perhaps I may enter this one through a window. I see the motif of the decor of this house is the spider. I prove physical matter malleable by using my energy to twist and deform this vessel into the shape of a spider, and climb the wall.
I look into the window. Finally, my target, she who will be the first to feed the new god of this world. Her back is facing me and the window is open, so unfortunately I will be deprived of the subtleties of the flavor of the fear she will produce before all that is Susie is absorbed into myself. I contemplate alerting her deliberately but determine the risk of her fleeing and drawing attention to myself is too great. Finally, after all this time, the moment draws near. I lunge.
Susie immediately whips around and plunges a knife into my abdomen, pinning me to the ground. "So absorbed in your own hatred, your disgust, everything that composes your self, that you failed to realize that if all that is wrong with humanity could nuture an untangible being, that it is possible that all that is right could serve as the spring from which one is drawn."
Wretched human, but I am equally worthless. How was whatever being that has parisitized Susie able to detect me, but I was so absorbed by my hunt that I failed to smell the stench of benevolence? Perhaps in some aspects, myself and Mike are not very diffferent. It was my own greed that drew me to the physical world, and my own wrath that pulled me to this particular inidividual. Susie's eyes began to glow with a blinding golden intensity, and I felt my self begin to decompose. Disgusting humans. They cannot outsmart me. Me more strong. Bad feel. Void.
The spider entity twisted back into its original form and collapsed to the floor. Susie shrieked and begin sobbing. "Mike!?"
"Susie?.. are you... here to play Maplestory?" as Mike spoke, a pale mist poured from his mouth, puddled on the floor, then disappeared. The knife fell from his body, and this mist also poured from the wound intead of blood.
"What's happening to him?" Susie asked to the being which had began to reside in her body earlier in the day, who informed her that it felt something wretched was coming to consume her and her entire species.
"He served as a vessel to that which should not exist in this space. I am sorry. There is nothing that can be done to save him. Feel no guilt, as this was his fate the second that entity made his body its own. I myself must leave this place as well so you will be spared the same fate. Farewell, Susan. You have done well." And like that, it was gone, and so was Mike. The only reminder any of this occurred being his torn clothes in a pile, and her sock returned. While Susie always found Mike strange, he didn't deserve this to happen to him.
She had to look at the good of this event. Evil incarnate manifested, and good was able to overpower it. While humanity indeed has its horrors, there is also good that is capable of rising and overpowering it. This time, humanity was saved from being consumed by that which was fed by the worst of itself.
Truly, it is a
