Under the light of the moon

Its quiet as the old man limps through the woods. His feet are covered with thin leather shoes and with out his ring staff it's a surprise how silent the old man can be. His mask is white and it glints off the moonlight like a beacon in the night. Kami followed behind with no emotion on her face as she follows him through the forest to a small clearing. The sound of running water can be heard in the distance. The night is electric as they make their way to the stream.

A small waterfall tumbles down the river and heads toward the fishing villiage outside of Haven. The old man stands before waterfall on the outside edge and waves his hands. The water stops. mid stream. It ceases to flow at all. The old man walks on the stopped water, but not frozen. He stopped time but did not lick the energy from the land. Kami follows him behind the waterfall carrying a small black bag made of silk.

The darkness inside the cave is thick. The old man lifts a hand and rocks begin to glow with a pale light. He stops in front of a circle. Silver and Platinum is twisted into a large spell circle, with old purple candles made of tallow and bees wax around it.

As he knees infront of the circle, a terrible wind begins to blow in the chamber. The sound of cicadas and clicking fills mind and sparks light up the circle as an alien form floats in the circle. Yaziel.

"YOU HAVE LEARNED NOTHING." The creature says into the old man's mind. It feels like scrapping the inside of his skull with a dull knife.

"I HAVE LEARNED EVERYTHING." The old man says. His eyes are hard and his mouth does not move. "When I am done with the crimson fools, my next pet project will be you."

"YOU CAN CHEAT TIME, YOU CAN CHEAT MORTALS, YOU CAN CHEAT LIFE, YOU CAN CHEAT DEATH. YOU CAN NOT CHEAT ME." It screams at him. "I AM BEHIND EVER THOUGHT. I AM THE HORROR IN YOUR GUT."

"My mind will be my own." the old man says, casting a handful of green sea salt on the floor. "you shouldn't have let me in on this secret."

"IF YOU FIND A WAY YOU LOSE EVERYTHING." IT SAID.

The old man looked up as blood leaked from under his mask.

"IF I DO NOT, I WILL HAVE NOTHING."
"I would only teach them Necromancy as part of a balanced breakfast."
