LotE: All Roads Lead to Glia in Alternative Posted February 21, 2020 Glia, Glia, Glia. The place of women, men who turn into women or simple men. What was so special about it that the necklace was glowing right here? No, the question did not serve its purpose: Why would something from his family, or someone exist here? Did his father send it here? No, he is resting for eternity near his house. Was it found by someone and sent to a museum? Hell no, it's not a sort of relic, which would get so much attention from people. Nobody knew his family bloodline, the Sur. They were as invisible as the rest of the families in Erasmia: Mother, father, son. That was in Tolok's mind: trying to guess the uncertain future with wild assumptions, assumptions which would only cause enough pain for one to withstand. And he had absolutely no idea what kind of horrifying truths he will find. If it were for a prophet to tell him, the fiery man would sit in a corner, his face white like sheet, his eyes wandering into a sort of void created by the facts written in a book of his destiny. He looked up at Severa and his eyes brightened, as if she caused his cogs to work, once again. To think of something else than the future. If one had to understand his future, he would have to understand his past, beforehand. "You have told me so many secrets about Glia. I am sure everybody else would have already put me on a cross, drowned and then burned to ash if I were to be a spy. Not even being a spy, just knowing these kinds of secrets. If you put your trust not in me, but in Owend that she brought me here, I shall tell you something about this necklace." He worked his hand under the shirt, closing his eyes, as if he wanted to feel the light, the warmth, the materlial of the trinket, gift from his parents. After a while, he made it visible, he put it over his shirt, with a gentle, caring gesture, that only meant respect for the fallen... For his parents. "This was a gift from my parents, when I decided I shall explore the lands." The necklace was glowing as usual, but with a close look, it wasn't an usual light. The pendant representing a sun battered in pure silver was not glowing with yellow to orange fire, no... The pendant was coated in it. A second layer, materialized and protecting the pendant from any outside danger, wishing to corrupt its own, pure essence. The purity Tolok is asking for, a reminder to look for the best of the world and then of himself. "It was gifted to me along with the sword and shield you have seen me use. They could have given me anything else, a wooden kite shield and a normal short sword but... It was as if they saw what will happen in the future. It is the last memory I have of them, or that's what I thought. It started glowing when Madon's party and I went closer and closer to Glia. I believe it started glowing because of something related to my family. Something which should probably glow, as well, waiting for the necklace and the said item to reunite." He sighed, looking down at the jewelry. "I have a feeling that... thing... will destroy every single thing I knew about my life."
