Chapter 15

Jerome's POV

After pizza and a long awkward moment of silence between us, we decided it'd be best to head home.

We all thanked Quentin's cousin for letting us stay, then headed out.

The house was eerily quiet as we entered.

"Let's lock all the doors. The more secure we are the better for now." Seto instructed, closing the front door and locking it.

Mitch, Ian, and Devin nodded, rushing off to different corners out the house.

"Seto you okay? You seem a little pale." Jason asked, looking at Seto with concern.

He sighed and waved him off, brushing past me.

"Let's just... Go to the living room." I muttered.

The others nodded and followed me there.

We all plopped down on the couch as the others joined us.

"So, what do we do now?" I asked.

No one answers.

"Well, we can't sit around and do nothing." Devin spoke up.

"We can't do much either. He's much more powerful than any of us." Ian grunted.

"We could just do what we did in Minecraft. Try to kill him again." Quentin offered.

"He'll just come back. Like before." Ty sighed.

"Then kill us all."

"So we're at square one again?" Mitch muttered.

"Guess so."

"D-Daddy. M-My head hurts." Quirren groaned, tugging on Devin's arm.

Devin raised an eyebrow at his daughter. "How bad is it?"

Quirren clutched her head and whimpered. "It's pounding, daddy. I can't focus."

"Should we get her some Advil?" I asked.

Devin turned to me, confusion written across his face.

"It's medicine to help a headache." Seto explained, watching Quirren closely.

Her teeth grit together as she squeezed her eyes shut, whimpering still.

"I don't think this is a normal headache. It's too sudden and clearly painful. Maybe she's getting sick?"

"That is a possibility, Adam." Ryan muttered.

Quirren suddenly gasped and fell to the ground, her body twisting and convulsing.

"Quirren?!" Devin cried, jumping to his feet.

Quirren's body continued to jolt in random spasms on the ground, her eyes tightly squeezed shut.

"What's happening? Little Lightly?"

Quirren then froze, falling limp.

"Okay, either Quirren just had a seizure, or-"

Quirren's groan cut Seto off.

The room fell into a deafening silence as the little girl rolled onto her stomach and slowly raised to a standing position, her back to us.

"Quirren? Are you okay?" Devin asked quietly.

A twisted chuckle echoed around us as Quirren spun around, her eyes glowing a vibrant white.

A gasp forced it's way out of my mouth as I stared in shock.

"I'm perfectly okay, daddy. Why wouldn't I be?" Quirren asked, her face twisted into a deranged smile.

Her voice sounded strange, almost mixed in with someone else's, one that we all knew too well.

"Leave my daughter alone!" Devin growled, his hands balled into fists at his side.

The dark sorcerer smirked. "Who are you to tell me what to do?"

"I swear to Notch-"

Quirren's scream echoed throughout the room, ringing in our ears.

Devin roared in fury and lunged forward, stopping short as Ian and Adan held him back.

"Do not hurt her!" He snarled.

The dark sorcerer grinned maniacally.

"Who's going to stop me? If you haven't noticed this world doesn't have magic."

"We can take you down. You're on our turf now." I growled.

"True. But, I have more power than all of you times twenty. I'm a god to you."

"There's already a god in this world, bud. He looks nothing like you." Ryan spat.

The dark sorcerer rolled his eyes. "Whatever."

"Why are you here? Let me daughter go." Devin demanded, shrugging off Adam and Ian.

"Oh yes, my motive for being here. Well, in all honestly I'm just here to gloat."

"And you're doing it through my daughter?!"

"Would you rather me make an entrance by killing her?"

Devin stayed silent.

"What is so important that you just had to posses a little girl to tell us?" Seto sneered.

"It's nothing too important. I just thought it'd be fun to make a show before I told you."

"Tell us for god's sake!" Mitch roared.

He held his hands up and chuckled lowly. "Someone's eager. Alright, I'm going to make this simple, your world will fall to mine. All these people you see around you will either be slaves or ashes beneath your feet. As for you, each and every one of you will fall, one by one, in such an excruciating way, you can't even imagine the pain you'll feel."

I crossed my arms and tapped my foot impatiently. "You done now?"

The dark sorcerer glared at me and moved his head up and down slowly, the white glow dimming in Quirren's eyes until they were back to their soft green.

She swayed slightly before collapsing into her father's waiting arms.

He carried her bridal style and stared at us warily.

Here we go again.

Sorry I didn't update yesterday, I was in such a terrible mood and honestly didn't feel like writing at all.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong on Quirren's eye color. I wasn't too sure about it.

Time to pass the pen to Fallout again.
