Scarlet Night: Call of the Carnivorous Moon

Post by Allen Momoto » Sun Feb 03, 2019 7:25 pm

What is this?

His voice,gentle as it was laid n the precipes of cracking. His breathes more rigid.His attitude...neigh his very way of thinking was becoming blurred. His core shook....the void had grown to large. Everything around him was bathed in the crimson hue of the moonlight above him. Its ominous gaze etched onto every piece of life around him.

To FEED

His chest would palpitate intensely. Again he quaked inside, he felt like if he did not find a remedy soon hed collapse within himself. This voice...it came with a dangerously avaricious thirst...it was as if the force propagating within him had a bloodlust that scarred the very heavens in red. He could barely contain himself, an issue he has very solemnly had.

Is to KNOW!

Violently his consciousness was torn asunder. He craved the flow of life of everything marinating in this cosmic blood lux. It urged him to take, to pillage, to plunder. He was transfixed,fighting against an instinctual urge greater than any desire he'd ever known. His nails rooted themselves into the great foliage before him,with a grunt and a twist he slashed through the girth of wood causing it to
fall,sending a shockwave through the forest,it echoed...roared even. Alerting the denizens of Allens arrival. Sacrifices to the harvest to come.

I do not...understand this

His back arc forward,bones cracking as he gripped his abdomen, it felt as if his stomach had been replaced with a turbulently swirling void. He craved, but he also fought to maintain. Perplexing smells and intriguing resonances gurgling inside him. He had never known lust like this.

"Over here, I think the noise came from this way."

The winds picked up,oh how they howled. Piercing Allen psyche like a blade of curiosity. He heard them... His feet drug across the first as he tried to take coverage amongst the draping foliage. He began to hug himself,nestling his head betwixt his knee cap. He bi down on his lip. The chaos swirling in him was cleaving his resolve in twain. His eyes darting across the ground naten seeming to flicker in his retinas. He did not want this,it felt far to eager to kill for the sake of being fulfilled. This urge terrified him. Like a cocoon of covetous hunger he lied in wait. Hoping to once again grasp himself and not harm whatever or whomever was approaching his location.

"I think we're getting closer!"

A woman called, her high pitched vices fluttering amongst the turbulent bellows of the steadily increasing gales...

" A storm's acmonin"

A more hardened yet raspier tone, a male?

No please...

The red headed ball whimpered, he felt a drip upon his left shoulder. Then another atop his knee cap. The rain soon engulfed him. His head slowly started to drift back towards the sky. A dual trail of spectral light following his ascending gaze in the oncoming darkness of the quickly forming clouds.

A rustle in the leaves and branches permeated the area. And with it the curious vessels of five humans. Now doubt from a nearby settlement within the woods. Farmers more possibly. There had been a dangerous increase in a population of black boar whom of which gorges itself on a tree grown fruit, the very same one this settlement makes its living pushing through the astral city. Basting the strength to knock the tree down they've been consuming vast profits and the ten has been undergoing a mass depression. The leader of the locals put out a bounty for the quick and furious culling of these beast for fear they'll starve out. If only..

"Hey over here!"

The rustling got louder, the rain got hard, the moon gleamed brighter. His head still in mid ascend got yet another glimpse of the scarlet eye in the sky his own otherworldly mirrors dilated. Only this time Allen was overwhelmed.

"There's a man over here..."

If only it had been a boar they found instead...

Horrific

Yes,that was the word that described the next turn of events. A grizzly wale caused the native organisms to flee in terror. Having been ensured by the fluorescence of the vermillion flare caught in his gaze his form jerked. Bulging protrusions rapidly occurred over his body. His hair started to grow till in laid in a bundle in the murky earth, His fangs enlarged,his body grew in mass and his muscles were far more defined. These changes came with the intense crackling of bones and grinding of joints it was as if His frame was realigning or evolving. The farmers stayed hidden,encroached behind the trees and low swings vines, stuck, helplessly watching the cardinal metamorphosis unraveling before them. Fear gripped the woman that accompanied them. Mouth agape she threatened to blow their already fragile cover. As she inhaled a man adorned with a black hood grabbed her mouth and held it shut. She caught herself. He looked the horrified woman straight in her eyes, his own visage showing worry but solid was his grip to affirm her of his strength. He placed a finger over his own mouth, signifying for her t be calm and quiet.

His gaze shot over to the other three men. They were armed with a simple weaponry. The hooded man however carried a blade slightly larger than the rest. A claymore it seemed to be. She calmed herself, yet the russet storm around them pulsated once more knocking down a tree that was a few meters away from the hiding party. The hooded man motioned for them to circle and surround Allen ,yet to still keep their distance.As this occurred the clouds vanished and a burst of light rained down on Allen. Like a lightning rod for the sanguine luminous drenching the forest, all light drew itself on Allen.

Cease this war of will... YOU WILL HEED THE CALL!

A chill curved Allens spine, his soul vibed resonating with the culmination of energy being thrust into his person, rippling through his body his naten began to pour from him causing energy waves to tear through the space around him, his soul was flaring, his heart aflame. And with a final roar the stage had been set. The Advent of the Carnivorous moon at reached its climax and with it a maddening dead silence. Smoke and debris cleared and what would be left standing at the epicenter of it all was a being...but if was this...was this still Allen.

The once cataclysmic storm that usurped the peaceful balance of the woods had been quelled. But bearing witness first hand to what now stood before them, no doubt the humans feared the calm that came after. Fear soaked every ounce of consciousness around, they could feel it, humming,vibrating echoing in the pits of their minds. The beast would now stand, slowly it would rise,its scarlet mane cascading onto the earth beneath it. The moon was no longer radiating its vermilion hue. Its as if creature now carried the soul of the crimson moon itself. It did not move hastily, as if it was reviling in its on existence, perhaps pondering it was a more direct point of view. Sheepishly so the beast angled its view toward the fallen trees. The land in its circumference desolate and ruptured. The humans dared not even breathe. Hoping profusely that the beast would simply forget about them and take its concerns elsewhere. But the seasoned warrior amongst them knew that chance was virtually nonexistent. He could sense it, the vulgarity before him harbored a desire to feed unlike anything the hunter every witnessed. It was bottomless. He knew a confrontation was practically inevitable, but along with this awareness came realization.

" I was not prepared for an encounter like this. I also cannot ris the lives of these civilians by being quick to confront this beast..."

He pondered, knowing the time to contemplate was running short, but pondering was damn near the only thing he could think to do. His eyes staying fixated on the enigma before him. No one present knew what this being was capable of,not even the creature itself from the way its analyzing itself.He took a deep/mental sigh. He had to calm himself and try to decipher the situation around him. " It was once a man,something triggered this transformation. Maybe if I can find a way to return him we can all escape with our lives." Another mental sigh followed." Well most of us at least" Though he could not directly pinpoint its heights he could feel the tremendous amount of Naten circulating through Allen. He looked toward the direction of the village and then back t the creature. Allen stood directly in the pathway needed to get the villagers to safety. He needed to draw the creatures attention. Hopefully this would give the other four civilians a chance to make it home in one piece,or at least enough pieces to warn the village of what was to come.
