MYSTERIUM: THE ORACLE’S FORETELLING, by Simone Pond
Magic has been banned from Mysterium because of a supernatural virus. The Rightbankers blame the Leftbank Ancients––but High Warlock Magnus knows better. He has heard the Oracle’s prophecy, and will stop at nothing to maintain his power. Including the wholesale slaughter of all young girls who show signs of having the Ancient Power. But one slips from his grasp.
Enjoy this excerpt…
Lightening flashed over the night sky of Mysterium. Then again, and again, and again. The effect was like a strobe-light, almost mesmerizing. The hooded horse-rider was not mesmerized; he was focused. His horse ambled up the steep grade of the one-lane dirt road—quickly becoming a mud-road—toward the cottage perched high upon one of the hills overlooking both the left and the right banks of the city.
Squash, squash, squash the horses hooves maintained a steady gait despite the gail-force winds, torrential downpour and steepening grade putting forth their best efforts to impede the progress of the steed and its rider. The closer they got to the cottage, the fiercer the wind and stronger the rain. More lightening erupted; the atmosphere was aglow with a flickering ocean of electricity as thunderclap bled into thunderclap in an orchestra of explosions and low rumbles.
Horse and rider reached the top and stopped at a rudimentary gate at the driveway. The hooded figure gestured with his hand—an almost imperceptible quick wave—and the gate swung open. The horse continued toward the soft fire glow emitting from within the cottage. The gate closed behind them.
The rain pelting the roof of the cottage, the thunderclaps and the approach of the rider outside were not heard by the old woman called the Oracle of Mysterium, who was seated cross-legged on a cushion on the floor in front of a fireplace. Her friend and confidante, an orange tabby cat named “Gabi,” was not nearly as impervious to the ungodly clamor transpiring outside. The cat continued to seek the best possible place for comfort—on the couch, or near the fireplace, or behind the statue of the Great Deity Ashtar. The feline finally opted to try and gain solace in the lap of her old friend, the Oracle. But the Oracle wasn’t quite present at the moment though her “vessel” (or rather physical body) was still there with palms raised upward, seated on the floor. No, the Oracle was currently inhabiting the 7th Astral Plane (where the Hall of Vision was located). Regardless of where her friend’s astral body was, Gabi the cat still sought refuge in the lap of the Oracle.
