Legends of Cascadon
Chapter Three - Perfection
Ages passed, and the world took its true form, with great forests and mountains. Feeling left out, if not forgotten, Erjon crafted a god to keep him company, Zubin. And since Dalka no longer sought to wreck havoc upon the world, his son Kie felt little need to pester anyone, which left a place for Zubin. Erjon sent her to the forests to corrupt the work being done, and so Zubin became the Goddess of Corruption. She turned good to bad, sweet to poison, and generally tried to turn the world unpleasant. Being out of work for the most part, Kie‘s time was then spent with Vietomma, and he came to love her. But, Vietomma had no interest in more than making use of Kie. So Kie sought the counsel of Aisha, to see if she could help him alleviate his suffering. Feeling the truth and depth of his emotion, Aisha couldn’t help but fall in love with Kie. And as time passed, Kie found himself growing increasingly fond of Aisha.
The night of the perfect moment began with Aisha confessing her love of Kie, and ended with a tragedy which shook the foundations of creation, threatening to send the gods into a war. In the time that Kie sought counsel from Aisha, Vietomma took a new consort, the violent and virile Lethos. In some ways, this was the impetuous for Kie‘s increasing time with Aisha, seeking advice. But on the fateful night when Aisha guided Kie to her home in the sun, Vietomma was in the throes of passion with Lethos. Even as Kie and Aisha became one, Vietomma was writhing upon Lethos. But being as powerful as a being as she was, Vietomma heard the whispered promises of love between Kie and Aisha and left Lethos’ bed to put an end to Kie and Aisha‘s happiness. Left alone and unfinished, Lethos was overcome with jealousy, and launched himself to where Kie was in order to kill him. Lethos arrived before Vietomma, and charged into Aisha’s room. Kie was asleep when Lethos arrived, but Aisha had been awake, and seeing the incoming attack, she shielded Kie‘s body with her own, and died under Lethos’ mighty blow. Thus ended the perfect moment Kie and Aisha had known.
When a Cascadonian says, “It was a perfect moment,” they mean that it was made bitter by brevity, but they wouldn’t trade it for the world.
