Betting Slip - Flowers by Caroline Florist Whittlesey

We found a statue of a woman down by the river - Part 3 - The Kothepo

Part 1
Part 2
Aunty Andy wouldn’t let us back in our rooms. She gathered up blankets and pillows and kept us all in the lounge-room.
“Is Liam gonna hurt us?” I said with my blanket up to my eyes. The two winced in surprise obviously forgetting for a moment that I’d read about him in the book.
“No I’ve told the police and their on the way now,” said Aunt Andy. “I’m gonna call for your Uncle to come here as well.”
I feel like she was trying to downplay the situation to keep us calm.
“Can we have the books?” asked Lou. “I want to read the rest.”
Aunt Andy shifted uncomfortably on the spot before getting to her feet. She nearly ran for the corridor. I felt like the dark window was watching us. I wish we could draw the blinds but I didn’t want to get up and go over. I buried my face away in my blankets.
“Here you go,” said Aunt Andy, reappearing with the books. Dad got up from the couch.
“Cup of tea?” he said in his quiet voice. “Hot chocolate?”
He limped around the kitchen, getting us all hot drinks. I opened up the book and continued reading.

Dandelion of course can’t tell you what happened on the river, so I’ll let you know.
We walked, single file out of the clearing. The rest of the community were playing mournful music, thumping drums like a funeral dirge. As we approached the river, we broke into two groups, the boys putting the raft down at the riverbed, the girls continuing into the forest. There were teary faces and sniffling everywhere.
All of us boys climbed into the raft and Glen pushed us into the water before climbing in after us. We began to drift gently away. Our little lethal river trip had begun.
Including me, there were eight guys on the raft. Morris, formally Luna had come out as trans when we were kids. I used to think that although the cult was terrible the one good thing about it was that it wasn’t bigoted. Morris only got flack for not changing his name to something nature-themed. Dandelion pointed out to me later that Liam’s little love party only had white people in it so all the adults were most likely racist. I hadn’t even realized that.
Then there was Sky. Something happened to him a few years before. He’d always been a bit slower than the rest of us, but suddenly he stopped talking and was prone to crying fits. It took a few years but finally he’d begun to talk again, although it was limited. He clung to Morris like a security blanket who was very protective of him.
Glen was the oldest of us and expecting a child with one of the girls Belladonna. Blaze who was the youngest of us at thirteen, had a bad squint and in hindsight probably should have been wearing glasses, but our backwards little cult didn’t accept that. Then there was Forest who was a big gangling joker. Finally there were the two twins Robin and Rowan.
The funeral music had changed to something strange and ominous. We all shifted uncomfortably on the raft.
“We’re pretty lucky,” said Rowan. “There’s not as much of us compared to the girls. It’ll be hard to lose so many of them.”
“Yeah but all they have to do is dance,” said Blaze. “It’s bullshit that we have to row down the river and they just have a party.”
Blaze was the most bitter of us and I didn’t blame him. He’d only just turned thirteen. If the Kothepo had been done literally a week earlier, he would have been safe. It seemed particularly unfair that he had to participate.
“Seriously?” said Morris, glaring at him. “They’re dancing to the death, they’re not allowed to stop for a second. At least we get to have a lie down. Most of us are going to have a pretty chill fucking death compared to them.”
“What would you prefer, just quickly drowning or dying of hypothermia?” argued Blaze. “Cause we’re getting the long, slow death.”
“I don’t know if it’s just me but I prefer neither of those,” said Forest to bitter smiles from the rest of us.
“Flowers,” said Sky, leaning down to scoop up petals from the river surface. He sniffed them and then smiled. “Roses.”
Blaze just sneered.
“Yeah, roses, Sky aren’t they pretty?” said Morris, the harsh look on his face softening.
“Speaking of roses,” said Forest and we looked over at him.
“Y’know, compared to Pan, Rose Gold’s pretty crap at throwing a party,” said Forest and this got laughs even from Blaze.
“Tell me about it,” muttered Rowan. “She’s a bloody moll isn’t she?”
“Yeah whata slag!” Forest said in an exaggerated old voice. “What a fuckin’ slaaag!”
He started clapping his hands together.
“Rose Gold, you’re mold, na na nana na, Rose Gold, you’re old, na na nana na!” he chanted. “C’mon guys, join in!”
Laughing, I started to clap and chant as well, along with the twins. Sky was giggling and Morris and Blaze were smirking and shaking their heads.
“Rose Gold, you’re mold, na na, nana na, Rose Gold, you’re old, nan a, nana na!”
“You’re like twenty-four years old, Forest,” said Blaze although he was amused. “How is it that I’m more mature then you?”
“Maturity is for suckers, I’m gonna be immature til I die,” Forrest replied. “Which will probably be in a few hours, let’s be real.”
Blaze snorted.
“I’m wondering if dying will be better?” said Rowan. “I don’t wanna have an orgy with any of you guys and especially not Liam.”
Sky stopped laughing at once. He stared down at the river, fiddling around with one of the flower petals.
“If you could pick any of the girls to survive, who would it be?” asked Forest. All of us teenagers cringed at once.
“Well only the older ones obviously,” said Rowan. “Anyone under twenty might be a sister, y’know. So like Winter, Briar, Daffodil and Belladonna, no offence Glen.”
Glen just shrugged.
“Sex apparently helps a baby get born, so I don’t mind,” he said.
“It come out with a big dent in its head though,” said Forest at once to peals of laughter from all of us.
“Flatter yourself much?” said Rowan, elbowing Forest.
The night drew on as we swatted mosquitoes and chatted aimlessly. This whole river cruise to the death wasn’t too bad yet. I reckoned we had lucked out compared to the girls. Most of us were probably going to just quietly freeze to death and at least we were doing it in nice calm company.
“You’ve barely said a word, Robin,” I said after a while. “You okay?”
Robin swallowed roughly.
“Just feelin’ a bit seasick,” he said. “And y’know, bloody scared of dying of course.”
“Aren’t we all,” Morris muttered sympathetically. He reached down the front of his shirt and then pulled a rope and bag out. We all looked at him.
“Managed to sneak some food on,” he said and all of us but Blaze crowed delightedly as he opened up the bag. Inside were hunks of bread and cheese.
“That’s so stupid!” Blaze snapped at Morris. “The whole point of keeping food from us is to kill us off, the faster people die the faster this is over!”
“You don’t have to have it,” Morris countered as the rest of us eagerly grabbed handfuls. Forest wiggled a chunk of cheese in front of Blaze’s glaring face.
“C’mon, y’know ya want it,” he said in a sing-song voice. “Yum, yum, yum!”
Blaze slapped his hand away. Still, after a few moments, he reached for the food as well.
“This will be a last meal for a lot of us,” said Glen as we ate. “I’ve always wanted to be a dad. I was so excited when Belladonna got pregnant. What if we both get wiped out?”
“I think both of you getting wiped out is the second best option,” said Morris. “It’ll be so much worse if one of you survives and the other doesn’t.”
Glen nodded.
“That’s true,” he said. “If one of us has to die, I hope it’s me. If she dies, she’s taking the baby with her.”
“I hope you both make it,” I said and everyone else nodded.
“To Belladonna and Glen making it,” said Forest, raising his piece of bread. Then he laughed as though figuring out a joke.
“A toast!” he said, motioning at the bread and we all groaned at the bad pun. Still, we all knocked our bits of bread together.
“To Belladonna and Glen making it,” we said.
“And to us soon to be deceased suckers, an easy death,” said Forest.
“Hear, hear,” we all said back.
We fell silent. Sky yawned.
“Might as well get some sleep,” said Glen.
“I’d say see you in the morning, but who knows if I’ll make it through the night,” said Forest as he lay down on the raft. “Sweet dreams everyone.”
We all muttered good-nights as we laid down to sleep. It was hard to doze off. I felt my icy cold skin crawling with mosquitoes. It was freezing and I tried to tug at my tunic to cover more of my exposed skin, tried to breathe on my hands for warmth. I’d never been that cold in my life and would never be that cold again. It felt like ice water had replaced my blood, shards of cold stabbing into my bones. Every exposed bit of skin was numb.
I did drift off but I don’t know if it was into a proper sleep or into a hypothermia induced unconsciousness. All I know is that I must have fallen asleep, because I was woken again later in the night.
There was screaming far away in the forest. It sounded like the girls, all wailing and sobbing together. I looked around the group. Everyone was still alive, although Robin looked very ill, sallow with vomit trickling down the side of his mouth.
The screaming got louder and more intense. None of us said a word, just silently floating down the black water. People over by the statue had obviously begun to drown.
The music was feverish, maniacal, all crashing drums and low droning that made my icy skin prickle. It mixed up with the wails of the girls like they were some kind of horrible chorus, singing along. Then there were crashing footsteps through the forest. We all shrunk up together. I became aware of a presence at the riverbank, but I couldn’t see what it was in the darkness.
“C’mon!” a voice that sounded like Hazel said. “C’mon, get off the raft!”
“C’mon!” the voice of Fern called. “This is bullshit we don’t have to do this!”
“It’s a hallucination,” said Blaze at once. “Guys, we’re all getting hypothermia, we’re gonna start seeing and hearing things, alright. Don’t go plunging into the goddamn river!”
“How are we all having the same vision?” Rowan countered.
“Maybe it’s a trick,” said Forest nervously. “Maybe it’s Rose Gold and she’s trying to get us to run into the water?”
There was a scream of frustration.
“You’re gonna die on that river!” yelled what sounded like Gwen. “Don’t you understand?”
Robin staggered forward, his eyes clouded over with sickness. He crashed into the water and began to doggie paddle forward.
“No!” screamed Rowan. “You’re already sick, you can’t take the cold!”
We watched helplessly as Rowan jumped in after him.
“C’mon, c’mon!” the voices of the girls yelled out. The twin brothers swam through the black water towards their voices. Soon they had reached the riverbank.
“Careful of the…!” Morris tried to yell but Robin had already clambered onto the mossy rocks. He slipped at once and cracked his head on the rock. Rowan let out a hoarse, choked scream.
We all beckoned and yelled after him, but he didn’t seem to hear us. He looked absolutely lost as he cradled his brother, just staring after us with faraway eyes. He remained in the icy cold water, watching us disappear down the river. The raft kept floating on and soon we lost sight of him. The voices of the three girls had fallen quiet. I wondered if they’d ever been there at all. I still don’t know what was out there that night, if it was actually the girls or something else.
No-one said a word. Sky was breathing heavily, voice harsh and short. Morris was mindlessly stroking Sky’s hair in an automatic soothing motion. Forest’s eyes were full barely subdued terror, endlessly licking his lips. Glen had his knees to his chest, burying his face away.
I didn’t know how long we traveled for, time melting together into a mindless blur. I could see that the dawn was breaking. The black night sky was shot through with pink streaks, the golden sun rising over the horizon.
“I bet you all want me to die,” Blaze said suddenly. “You’re all against me, I can tell.”
“No-one’s against you,” I said at once. “We don’t want anyone to die.”
“Bullshit,” said Blaze. “Forest is funny, Glen has a baby on the way, you’re the nice guy and Morris and Sky are boyfriends or whatever! Then there’s me, just some kid no-one likes. You all secretly want me to go next!”
He got to his feet and the raft teetered to and fro. We all clutched to the sides, trying not to be flung into the water.
“Sit down you idiot!” Morris snarled.
“That’s it, you just think I’m a dumb kid, don’t you!” Blaze screamed, stamping his foot. Water surged onto the raft as we tried to keep it steady.
“Yeah I do, you’re trying to capsize the boat cause of a temper tantrum,” Morris sneered back. “I didn’t know they let toddlers do the Kothepo…”
Blaze launched at him in a fury of flying fists. Morris grappled with him, trying to block the attacks and push him away.
“Hit back, hit back, you talk shit and you can’t even take a punch!” Blaze was shouting.
“Calm down!” yelled Glen. “What’s the matter with you?”
Sky had his arms over his head, rocking on the spot, his eyes clenched shut. I exchanged looks with Forest. The raft was approaching a low hanging branch. Blaze was going to be knocked down.
“Duck!” I said but Blaze was too in a rage to notice. “Duck!”
With a thump, Blaze was smacked in the back of the head and fell into the water. Morris immediately scrabbled to his knees, sticking out his hand.
“Grab my hand, c’mon we’ll get you back on!” he shouted as Blaze splashed desperately in the water. He grabbed Morris’s hand, tugging hard. I still don’t know if he did it on purpose or if it was accident. I like to think it was an accident that Blaze didn’t try to take Morris down with him.
“No!” screamed Sky as Morris hit his chin on the edge of the raft, crashing into the river as well. The two of them disappeared under the surface.
“No, no, no please!” Sky sobbed as the raft floated away. We couldn’t see them in the dark water. The current was growing faster, more dangerous. Almost as if nature was trying to fasten this all up for us. Soon the patch of water where they’d fallen had disappeared over the horizon.
I put my arms around Sky who has breathing harshly, face a terrified mask.
“It’s okay, it’s okay,” I said as his breath got shorter until he was heaving for oxygen. I thought he was going to pass out. The sky was pink and yellow, as the early morning drew on. Birds were waking up, chirping away like it was any other normal day. The light illuminated the bushes and trees along the river and in my fear they looked jagged and threatening, the birdsong like cawing vultures.
“The last of us,” Glen whispered, hugging his knees to his chest, burying his face away. “The last of us. Just let this be over.”
There was a burst of laughter and I looked up and saw Forest with a wide grin, pointing somewhere in the distance. Looking over I saw nothing but the pink sunrise. Forest kept on laughing and laughing.
“Rose Gold, Rose Gold, you’re old, you’re mold, as old as the sun, no, no much older, with white gnashing teeth!” Forest screamed, eyes bugging, froth at his cracked lips. “She’ll never be satisfied! She’s always hungry! Moloch, Moloch and darkness and decay and the Rose Death held imitable sway over them all! Leave us be, Queen Bee, leave us be Queen Bee…!”
The last word was stretched out into a maniacal wail as he clutched at his neck. His nails dug into the flesh as he began to claw and rip, choking on the blood as he tore out his own throat. Red liquid gushed down his white tunic as he fell to his knees. He fell into the water, still trying to scream through his mangled vocal cords.
I clutched at Sky who was sobbing into my shoulder. Glen and I watched the body float away, face contorted into a grotesque grinning mask.
No-one said a word. The current had calmed again and the raft gently floated over to a bend in the river, hitting the bank and coming to a stop. I wonder if we would have reached the river bend if Forest was still with us. If we had all died earlier, would the river bend have appeared out of nowhere? Was nature was waiting for us to get down to three before ending the trip for us?
Silently, we climbed out of the raft. We were all trembling in the cold and shock, standing close together for warmth. The Kothepo was over. We had survived.

We found a statue of a woman down by the river - Part 3 - The Kothepo

Part 1
Part 2
Aunty Andy wouldn’t let us back in our rooms. She gathered up blankets and pillows and kept us all in the lounge-room.
“Is Liam gonna hurt us?” I said with my blanket up to my eyes. The two winced in surprise obviously forgetting for a moment that I’d read about him in the book.
“No I’ve told the police and their on the way now,” said Aunt Andy. “I’m gonna call for your Uncle to come here as well.”
I feel like she was trying to downplay the situation to keep us calm.
“Can we have the books?” asked Lou. “I want to read the rest.”
Aunt Andy shifted uncomfortably on the spot before getting to her feet. She nearly ran for the corridor. I felt like the dark window was watching us. I wish we could draw the blinds but I didn’t want to get up and go over. I buried my face away in my blankets.
“Here you go,” said Aunt Andy, reappearing with the books. Dad got up from the couch.
“Cup of tea?” he said in his quiet voice. “Hot chocolate?”
He limped around the kitchen, getting us all hot drinks. I opened up the book and continued reading.
*
Dandelion of course can’t tell you what happened on the river, so I’ll let you know.
We walked, single file out of the clearing. The rest of the community were playing mournful music, thumping drums like a funeral dirge. As we approached the river, we broke into two groups, the boys putting the raft down at the riverbed, the girls continuing into the forest. There were teary faces and sniffling everywhere.
All of us boys climbed into the raft and Glen pushed us into the water before climbing in after us. We began to drift gently away. Our little lethal river trip had begun.
Including me, there were eight guys on the raft. Morris, formally Luna had come out as trans when we were kids. I used to think that although the cult was terrible the one good thing about it was that it wasn’t bigoted. Morris only got flack for not changing his name to something nature-themed. Dandelion pointed out to me later that Liam’s little love party only had white people in it so all the adults were most likely racist. I hadn’t even realized that.
Then there was Sky. Something happened to him a few years before. He’d always been a bit slower than the rest of us, but suddenly he stopped talking and was prone to crying fits. It took a few years but finally he’d begun to talk again, although it was limited. He clung to Morris like a security blanket who was very protective of him.
Glen was the oldest of us and expecting a child with one of the girls Belladonna. Blaze who was the youngest of us at thirteen, had a bad squint and in hindsight probably should have been wearing glasses, but our backwards little cult didn’t accept that. Then there was Forest who was a big gangling joker. Finally there were the two twins Robin and Rowan.
The funeral music had changed to something strange and ominous. We all shifted uncomfortably on the raft.
“We’re pretty lucky,” said Rowan. “There’s not as much of us compared to the girls. It’ll be hard to lose so many of them.”
“Yeah but all they have to do is dance,” said Blaze. “It’s bullshit that we have to row down the river and they just have a party.”
Blaze was the most bitter of us and I didn’t blame him. He’d only just turned thirteen. If the Kothepo had been done literally a week earlier, he would have been safe. It seemed particularly unfair that he had to participate.
“Seriously?” said Morris, glaring at him. “They’re dancing to the death, they’re not allowed to stop for a second. At least we get to have a lie down. Most of us are going to have a pretty chill fucking death compared to them.”
“What would you prefer, just quickly drowning or dying of hypothermia?” argued Blaze. “Cause we’re getting the long, slow death.”
“I don’t know if it’s just me but I prefer neither of those,” said Forest to bitter smiles from the rest of us.
“Flowers,” said Sky, leaning down to scoop up petals from the river surface. He sniffed them and then smiled. “Roses.”
Blaze just sneered.
“Yeah, roses, Sky aren’t they pretty?” said Morris, the harsh look on his face softening.
“Speaking of roses,” said Forest and we looked over at him.
“Y’know, compared to Pan, Rose Gold’s pretty crap at throwing a party,” said Forest and this got laughs even from Blaze.
“Tell me about it,” muttered Rowan. “She’s a bloody moll isn’t she?”
“Yeah whata slag!” Forest said in an exaggerated old voice. “What a fuckin’ slaaag!”
He started clapping his hands together.
“Rose Gold, you’re mold, na na nana na, Rose Gold, you’re old, na na nana na!” he chanted. “C’mon guys, join in!”
Laughing, I started to clap and chant as well, along with the twins. Sky was giggling and Morris and Blaze were smirking and shaking their heads.
“Rose Gold, you’re mold, na na, nana na, Rose Gold, you’re old, nan a, nana na!”
“You’re like twenty-four years old, Forest,” said Blaze although he was amused. “How is it that I’m more mature then you?”
“Maturity is for suckers, I’m gonna be immature til I die,” Forrest replied. “Which will probably be in a few hours, let’s be real.”
Blaze snorted.
“I’m wondering if dying will be better?” said Rowan. “I don’t wanna have an orgy with any of you guys and especially not Liam.”
Sky stopped laughing at once. He stared down at the river, fiddling around with one of the flower petals.
“If you could pick any of the girls to survive, who would it be?” asked Forest. All of us teenagers cringed at once.
“Well only the older ones obviously,” said Rowan. “Anyone under twenty might be a sister, y’know. So like Winter, Briar, Daffodil and Belladonna, no offence Glen.”
Glen just shrugged.
“Sex apparently helps a baby get born, so I don’t mind,” he said.
“It come out with a big dent in its head though,” said Forest at once to peals of laughter from all of us.
“Flatter yourself much?” said Rowan, elbowing Forest.
The night drew on as we swatted mosquitoes and chatted aimlessly. This whole river cruise to the death wasn’t too bad yet. I reckoned we had lucked out compared to the girls. Most of us were probably going to just quietly freeze to death and at least we were doing it in nice calm company.
“You’ve barely said a word, Robin,” I said after a while. “You okay?”
Robin swallowed roughly.
“Just feelin’ a bit seasick,” he said. “And y’know, bloody scared of dying of course.”
“Aren’t we all,” Morris muttered sympathetically. He reached down the front of his shirt and then pulled a rope and bag out. We all looked at him.
“Managed to sneak some food on,” he said and all of us but Blaze crowed delightedly as he opened up the bag. Inside were hunks of bread and cheese.
“That’s so stupid!” Blaze snapped at Morris. “The whole point of keeping food from us is to kill us off, the faster people die the faster this is over!”
“You don’t have to have it,” Morris countered as the rest of us eagerly grabbed handfuls. Forest wiggled a chunk of cheese in front of Blaze’s glaring face.
“C’mon, y’know ya want it,” he said in a sing-song voice. “Yum, yum, yum!”
Blaze slapped his hand away. Still, after a few moments, he reached for the food as well.
“This will be a last meal for a lot of us,” said Glen as we ate. “I’ve always wanted to be a dad. I was so excited when Belladonna got pregnant. What if we both get wiped out?”
“I think both of you getting wiped out is the second best option,” said Morris. “It’ll be so much worse if one of you survives and the other doesn’t.”
Glen nodded.
“That’s true,” he said. “If one of us has to die, I hope it’s me. If she dies, she’s taking the baby with her.”
“I hope you both make it,” I said and everyone else nodded.
“To Belladonna and Glen making it,” said Forest, raising his piece of bread. Then he laughed as though figuring out a joke.
“A toast!” he said, motioning at the bread and we all groaned at the bad pun. Still, we all knocked our bits of bread together.
“To Belladonna and Glen making it,” we said.
“And to us soon to be deceased suckers, an easy death,” said Forest.
“Hear, hear,” we all said back.
We fell silent. Sky yawned.
“Might as well get some sleep,” said Glen.
“I’d say see you in the morning, but who knows if I’ll make it through the night,” said Forest as he lay down on the raft. “Sweet dreams everyone.”
We all muttered good-nights as we laid down to sleep. It was hard to doze off. I felt my icy cold skin crawling with mosquitoes. It was freezing and I tried to tug at my tunic to cover more of my exposed skin, tried to breathe on my hands for warmth. I’d never been that cold in my life and would never be that cold again. It felt like ice water had replaced my blood, shards of cold stabbing into my bones. Every exposed bit of skin was numb.
I did drift off but I don’t know if it was into a proper sleep or into a hypothermia induced unconsciousness. All I know is that I must have fallen asleep, because I was woken again later in the night.
There was screaming far away in the forest. It sounded like the girls, all wailing and sobbing together. I looked around the group. Everyone was still alive, although Robin looked very ill, sallow with vomit trickling down the side of his mouth.
The screaming got louder and more intense. None of us said a word, just silently floating down the black water. People over by the statue had obviously begun to drown.
The music was feverish, maniacal, all crashing drums and low droning that made my icy skin prickle. It mixed up with the wails of the girls like they were some kind of horrible chorus, singing along. Then there were crashing footsteps through the forest. We all shrunk up together. I became aware of a presence at the riverbank, but I couldn’t see what it was in the darkness.
“C’mon!” a voice that sounded like Hazel said. “C’mon, get off the raft!”
“C’mon!” the voice of Fern called. “This is bullshit we don’t have to do this!”
“It’s a hallucination,” said Blaze at once. “Guys, we’re all getting hypothermia, we’re gonna start seeing and hearing things, alright. Don’t go plunging into the goddamn river!”
“How are we all having the same vision?” Rowan countered.
“Maybe it’s a trick,” said Forest nervously. “Maybe it’s Rose Gold and she’s trying to get us to run into the water?”
There was a scream of frustration.
“You’re gonna die on that river!” yelled what sounded like Gwen. “Don’t you understand?”
Robin staggered forward, his eyes clouded over with sickness. He crashed into the water and began to doggie paddle forward.
“No!” screamed Rowan. “You’re already sick, you can’t take the cold!”
We watched helplessly as Rowan jumped in after him.
“C’mon, c’mon!” the voices of the girls yelled out. The twin brothers swam through the black water towards their voices. Soon they had reached the riverbank.
“Careful of the…!” Morris tried to yell but Robin had already clambered onto the mossy rocks. He slipped at once and cracked his head on the rock. Rowan let out a hoarse, choked scream.
We all beckoned and yelled after him, but he didn’t seem to hear us. He looked absolutely lost as he cradled his brother, just staring after us with faraway eyes. He remained in the icy cold water, watching us disappear down the river. The raft kept floating on and soon we lost sight of him. The voices of the three girls had fallen quiet. I wondered if they’d ever been there at all. I still don’t know what was out there that night, if it was actually the girls or something else.
No-one said a word. Sky was breathing heavily, voice harsh and short. Morris was mindlessly stroking Sky’s hair in an automatic soothing motion. Forest’s eyes were full barely subdued terror, endlessly licking his lips. Glen had his knees to his chest, burying his face away.
I didn’t know how long we traveled for, time melting together into a mindless blur. I could see that the dawn was breaking. The black night sky was shot through with pink streaks, the golden sun rising over the horizon.
“I bet you all want me to die,” Blaze said suddenly. “You’re all against me, I can tell.”
“No-one’s against you,” I said at once. “We don’t want anyone to die.”
“Bullshit,” said Blaze. “Forest is funny, Glen has a baby on the way, you’re the nice guy and Morris and Sky are boyfriends or whatever! Then there’s me, just some kid no-one likes. You all secretly want me to go next!”
He got to his feet and the raft teetered to and fro. We all clutched to the sides, trying not to be flung into the water.
“Sit down you idiot!” Morris snarled.
“That’s it, you just think I’m a dumb kid, don’t you!” Blaze screamed, stamping his foot. Water surged onto the raft as we tried to keep it steady.
“Yeah I do, you’re trying to capsize the boat cause of a temper tantrum,” Morris sneered back. “I didn’t know they let toddlers do the Kothepo…”
Blaze launched at him in a fury of flying fists. Morris grappled with him, trying to block the attacks and push him away.
“Hit back, hit back, you talk shit and you can’t even take a punch!” Blaze was shouting.
“Calm down!” yelled Glen. “What’s the matter with you?”
Sky had his arms over his head, rocking on the spot, his eyes clenched shut. I exchanged looks with Forest. The raft was approaching a low hanging branch. Blaze was going to be knocked down.
“Duck!” I said but Blaze was too in a rage to notice. “Duck!”
With a thump, Blaze was smacked in the back of the head and fell into the water. Morris immediately scrabbled to his knees, sticking out his hand.
“Grab my hand, c’mon we’ll get you back on!” he shouted as Blaze splashed desperately in the water. He grabbed Morris’s hand, tugging hard. I still don’t know if he did it on purpose or if it was accident. I like to think it was an accident that Blaze didn’t try to take Morris down with him.
“No!” screamed Sky as Morris hit his chin on the edge of the raft, crashing into the river as well. The two of them disappeared under the surface.
“No, no, no please!” Sky sobbed as the raft floated away. We couldn’t see them in the dark water. The current was growing faster, more dangerous. Almost as if nature was trying to fasten this all up for us. Soon the patch of water where they’d fallen had disappeared over the horizon.
I put my arms around Sky who has breathing harshly, face a terrified mask.
“It’s okay, it’s okay,” I said as his breath got shorter until he was heaving for oxygen. I thought he was going to pass out. The sky was pink and yellow, as the early morning drew on. Birds were waking up, chirping away like it was any other normal day. The light illuminated the bushes and trees along the river and in my fear they looked jagged and threatening, the birdsong like cawing vultures.
“The last of us,” Glen whispered, hugging his knees to his chest, burying his face away. “The last of us. Just let this be over.”
There was a burst of laughter and I looked up and saw Forest with a wide grin, pointing somewhere in the distance. Looking over I saw nothing but the pink sunrise. Forest kept on laughing and laughing.
“Rose Gold, Rose Gold, you’re old, you’re mold, as old as the sun, no, no much older, with white gnashing teeth!” Forest screamed, eyes bugging, froth at his cracked lips. “She’ll never be satisfied! She’s always hungry! Moloch, Moloch and darkness and decay and the Rose Death held imitable sway over them all! Leave us be, Queen Bee, leave us be Queen Bee…!”
The last word was stretched out into a maniacal wail as he clutched at his neck. His nails dug into the flesh as he began to claw and rip, choking on the blood as he tore out his own throat. Red liquid gushed down his white tunic as he fell to his knees. He fell into the water, still trying to scream through his mangled vocal cords.
I clutched at Sky who was sobbing into my shoulder. Glen and I watched the body float away, face contorted into a grotesque grinning mask.
No-one said a word. The current had calmed again and the raft gently floated over to a bend in the river, hitting the bank and coming to a stop. I wonder if we would have reached the river bend if Forest was still with us. If we had all died earlier, would the river bend have appeared out of nowhere? Was nature was waiting for us to get down to three before ending the trip for us?
Silently, we climbed out of the raft. We were all trembling in the cold and shock, standing close together for warmth. The Kothepo was over. We had survived.

Soul Security (4)

(Continued from Soul Security (3))
I stepped out of the sanctuary of Death's world of illusion and into the Void. I could see the lights of an enormous city as if I was standing in the sky above it. My HUD, which was less of a display and more of an AI, showed me a mental image of a building. As soon as my brain processed the image, I was standing in front of it. It was the Pharaoh Media studio and I assumed that it was where Jaylon was. As I stood in the street, another person appeared out of nowhere. He looked haggard and I felt a knot of apprehension.
"You're Tracy?" He asked, looking me over. I nodded and he held out his hand. "Baron. I'm going to be your guide for a while." I shook his hand and suddenly we were standing on top of a ceiling beam in a club. He released my hand and turned towards the stage where the DJ was bouncing and nodding with the music, completely unaware of the demon that surreptitiously sucked at his aura as it passed by. My guide didn't seem to notice at all. The Hud labeled it as a minor demon of the seventh class. The music faded out and a chorus of whoops and whistles went up from the crowd.
The DJ picked up his microphone. "I know all you guys love me-" a roar went up from the crowd and he grinned, "I love you too, but we all know you're not here for me." Laughter rippled through the room and he stepped to one side with a wink. "You're here for-" he turned and pointed to the door behind him and announced, "Jaylon Tayges and his new single, Revelation!" The crowd went wild as Jaylon stepped onto the stage with his classic, annoying smirk. "Who's ready to party?!" He yelled. As the crowd went into a screaming frenzy, Baron jerked his chin at the superstar. "That's him."
"They guy can make an entrance." I offered dryly. He nodded absently as his eyes fastened on the sixth class demon that followed Jaylon on stage. Baron pulled out a long sword and vanished, reappearing behind the demon. He dispatched it smoothly and lingered near Jaylon as he began singing. I hated to admit it, but he had a good voice. My resentment surfaced as the empty words of the chart-topping song enthralled the crowd. I looked down over the room and the knot in my stomach turned to anxiety. There were almost as many demons as there were people, varying in class from 8 to 5. I saw two other Guardians but the demons avoided them.
I saw a girl sitting in the corner with a stack of empty glasses and a small glass pipe. Several demons were clustered around her, all lower-level demons, feeding on her soul. I dropped down to her and the demons looked up, hissing. I raised one arm, and the targeting system locked on as the Graceling powered up and engaged the mid-range projectile system.
Grace had made major changes to the design. It was now sleek, a pair of gauntlets with attached gloves for blade use. As for the canons, I had yet to use them at all. I strongly suspected that I wouldn't need to. Not for small-fry like the ones in my sights. I fired off the shots, obliterating the three I hit. One dodged and shrieked as the shot burned past it. He disappeared and I felt a sense of accomplishment. My first victories. I felt extremely conspicuous, but no one was even looking. Perks of being dead, I thought wryly. Baron appeared beside me with a frown. "What are you doing?" I pointed at the stoned girl. "Those demons were feeding on her."
He shrugged. "It happens all the time. You have to get used to it. Save your power for your job, because I can assure you that you will need it. The last guy was a lot tougher than you and he almost got his soul fractured." I was a little worried about the reference to "the last guy" but I was still confused about the situation. "I thought we are supposed to kill demons." I pointed out. Baron nodded. "We are. When they are class five major or higher. Anything under that is not worth our time unless they are stupid enough to approach our assignment. Then we exterminate with extreme prejudice."
I looked up at the stage and frowned. "So what you're saying is that the life of that girl is somehow less valuable than the life of someone like Jaylon? Just because she isn't an alpha soul she doesn't deserve to be protected?"
Baron shook his head. "She does deserve to be protected, but that's not our job. Our job is to protect Jaylon. Soon you will be on your own and I hope that you have your act together or you are going to get thrashed." With that, he turned and headed up to the stage. I hesitated, then followed him. We waited until he finished singing and signing autographs. His security and the club owner escorted him to a private booth, where he and a few other select individuals sat down to talk. I felt so uncomfortable standing between the two hulking giants he had for bodyguards. A minor class eight demon was clinging onto one of them and I reached out to see if I could touch it. The thing snapped and hissed, then vanished.
I looked out over the club, watching the people dancing in sync with the beat of the music. Demons wove in and out, leeching energy and concentrating around individuals who seemed to be having a hard time. Baron whistled softly and I turned towards him. "Looks like we've got a feeder." He said tiredly. I followed his gaze to the far side of the room. A hulking bear-like demon was making its way across the establishment. The lower level demons scattered, growling and hissing as they scrambled for cover. The AI analyzed it and labeled it a mild threat: class 6 minor. Baron watched it warily. "Unless this thing comes after us, we will not engage." I frowned. "It looks a lot more dangerous than the others." He nodded. "Exactly. We need to avoid confrontation."
"Are you kidding me?" I asked incredulously. "Are you really going to let that thing run around and prey on other people?"
He turned to me with a frustrated sigh. "Feeders are not like the other small fry. They are opportunistic hunters who seek out high-level souls to feed on then move on. Feeders are focused hunters. The lower level demons seek out weak souls and feed on them for long periods of time." I was getting irritated as I watched the hulking brute scanning for a potential victim. I secretly hoped that the stupid thing would pick a fight with us. It looked our way and stared for several long seconds before approaching the bartender. It crouched on the bar, devouring the man's aura.
"Avoid confrontation my ass," I muttered as I stepped down from the private booth and analyzed the demon. The AI suggested the most efficient elimination procedure and I switched to a higher caliber shot as I maneuvered into the creature's blind spot. I leaped forward, carefully controlling my speed. In a split second, I had the barrels of the Graceling pressed against the back of the feeder's head and clenched my fist.
The demon shrieked as scattershot tore through it and it disappeared in a flash of sparks and darkness, leaving behind the smell of sulfur and brimstone. The demons were silent and the other Guardians stared at me strangely. "What?" I said irritably.
"Nice guns." One of the Guardians quipped. I shrugged and went back to the booth. Under his breath, the other Guardian muttered, "Rookie." I ignored him and slipped between the big guards. Jaylon was still laughing and talking, completely oblivious to the acrid smell of sulfur that filled the air. He was talking about his next show, scheduled for the next weekend. I was concerned. My accident had happened a few days before the start of the spring semester. That was at the start of the year. I turned to Baron. "What day is it?" My heart was pounding and I could feel my palms growing damp.
"Its the 24th." He answered absently.
"Of?" I asked.
He looked at me, frowning. He was about to say something when Jaylon's phone rang. He peeked at the screen, then excused himself. He answered his phone on the way to the men's room, but the cheering was too loud for him to hear the person on the other end. He asked the caller to wait a moment as he turned into the men's room. Instinctually, I hesitated before following Baron through the door.
"Is everything ok? Did she wake up?" Jaylon fired his questions, one on top of the other, the concern and hope in his voice palpable. He began running his hand through his hair as he paced back and forth in front of the sinks. There was a short delay on the other end as the caller spoke to someone in the background.
There was a heavy sigh and Jaylon stopped, his eyes shifting as he waited. "No, she didn't wake up." The voice said. "The concussion and bleeding were too severe and she suffered a massive stroke. She didn't make it. She was declared dead an hour and a half ago. We just found out."
Jaylon stood like a statue, staring at the vase of fake foliage beside the sink. "I'm really sorry man. Is there anything I can do for you?" The caller asked. Jaylon came out of his trance and shook his head as he said, "When is the funeral going to be?" There was a pause as an inaudible voice spoke in the background. "Kamile says it's planned for this Sunday." Jaylon nodded again, swallowing hard before he said, "I'll be there."
He hung up, then stared at the screen of his phone for a long time. Footsteps sounded in the hall, and he cursed, heading for the nearest stall. Two drunks in their twenties stumbled in, headed for the urinals. I turned around to face the wall, feeling the red creep up my neck. After a few minutes of stumbling around and beer talk, the two finished and left. Jaylon came out of the stall, seeming to have collected himself in the meantime. He went to excuse himself and made his way to his car. Baron followed him in and I followed Baron.
As we pulled away from the curb, Jaylon turned on some music. Strong rock music that drowned out the racket from the street. We rode for about ten minutes before we arrived in front of a beautiful home in the suburb and pulled into the garage. Jaylon made his way into the house and dropped his keys into a bowl on the counter. He ordered pizza and sat down in his living room. It was almost twelve when the doorbell rang. He paid, then took the pizza and a case of beer to his room.
It was a neat space, no doubt the work of a housekeeper. Jaylon plopped down in a chair and turned on his PlayStation. He began blasting his way through enemies in a covert operation. I recognized the game. It was one of the latest in the Call of Duty franchise. I turned to Baron. "Is he always like this?"
He shrugged. "I don't know. I've only been around a few days, and the last guy is still recovering, but this isn't usual. He never leaves a club early unless something is wrong." I shrugged and walked around a bit. After almost an hour, he saved his game and got on his phone. He began texting, and after a flurry of exchanged messages, he got a call.
With a sigh, he answered. An annoyed voice blared from the speaker. "What do you mean, 'I'm going to cancel Sunday's interview'! Do you have any idea how big a deal this is? We've been waiting for weeks to get you in the magazine. Why the heck would you risk all that?"
Jaylon reached for a beer and twisted the cap off. "You remember that classmate of mine who was in that wreck? She died." I felt so weird. Not only that he was talking about me, but also because I didn't expect him to remember who I was or even to care. I had spent a lot of time hating him and now I just felt like I was a terrible person.
"Aw that sucks." The voice on the other end said without skipping a beat. "I can send a gift basket if you give me an address." Jaylon took a swig from his beer. "No need. I'm going to her funeral."
A huffy sigh came over the line. "Jay, this is your career, but let me give you some advice. If you pass up opportunities like this, you are going to lose. Heck, If I was offered the choice between going to my nana's funeral and taking this gig, I would be practicing my lines and bleaching my teeth. Look, I know you care about your class-mates, but you barely see them at all. In fact if I remember right, you have never spoken to this girl in all the time I've known you."
Jaylon took another drink. "I owe her this much."
The man sighed. "I'm sure she would understand. Just send some flowers. Everyone loves flowers." Jaylon huffed. "I'm not asking Mich. You can either reschedule the interview now, or you can spend your Sunday afternoon explaining why I won't be there."
There was silence, them Mich sighed. "I can't believe this." The line beeped as Mich hung up.
Jaylon tossed the phone onto the bed. He resumed his game with the pizza in his lap and the beer beside him. As I sat on the balcony, I summoned my familiar. It waddled aimlessly about and I sighed, thinking of what Jaylon had said. Why did he feel like he owed me anything? We had obviously both hated each other, right? Or maybe it was just me. Maybe I had been bitter over nothing. Maybe I had been unfair in my judgment. Suddenly, I realized something. Never once had Jaylon actually taken an active part in the harassment of my high school years. He had simply spoken to me, teased me lightly or told a story about our shared past. He had been a bully when we were kids, and maybe he was a bully by association, but he was just a successful kid that everyone liked. And I was an unsuccessful person who didn't even like herself. I realized how petty I had been. How jealous and resentful of his success. I watched my bird walk around and questioned my life.
I heard a sound and looked up. Jaylon was staring over at me. Not at me but at my bird. He squinted, then got up and walked over to the sliding doors. "Send your familiar away. She has attracted too much attention." Baron scolded.
I caught the bird's eye and jerked my head. "Fly off for a bit." She cocked her head, holding my gaze with her beady eyes. Then she turned and looked up at Jaylon, cooing. He laughed and opened the door. "Okay, you can come in." She strutted into the room and straight over to his pizza box, where she began pecking at the crust.
"Get back here!" I hissed.
She gave me the eye and ignored me. I was about to go and get her myself when Jaylon chuckled. "I bet being a bird kicks ass." He tore off the crust and held it out to my wayward familiar. "Here, have some more." He watched a few seconds, then said, "Do you want some beer?" He poured a little into a cap and watched as the bird drank it daintily. The two sat there, eating pizza and drinking beer until Jaylon leaned back and rubbed his face with his hands. "I'm going to sleep Birdy. You can do whatever you want."
He stripped down to his boxers and crawled into his bed, the six-pack now empty and the greasy pizza cooling on the floor as Birdy made short work of the crust.
"Your familiar is completely useless," Baron told me.
I snorted. "Oh, gee. I hadn't frickin' noticed."
He gave his signature sigh. "I hope Death didn't make a mistake."
So did I.
