All Hail Barracutus *On Hold*

War is ripe for the planet of Sempiterna. For generations the twelve major tribes/species (Unless you believe in the tales of the Wizards who say there are thirteen) have very little knowledge of the meaning of the word "peace". Only recently has the tribe of the Svets Deus brought about an era of peace.
In the meanwhile, Barracutus, a normal Kyanos Diamon, struggles to solve the past about the ancient forefathers of Sempiterna. Though could the knowledge of the ancient forefathers be a bigger mystery than he had originally thought it to be? Read throughout to uncover the history of Sempiterna in the first book of an epic trilogy.

9. Chapter 7: Fulfillment

The days passed by rather quickly for both the Diamons and the Svets Deus. Though still, no one could prove Barracutus right or wrong with his walk around Fortfarande Vatten. It brought about a great mystery with the others around him. Sure enough, Eusebius did confirm that they did give the dragons a short break right by the city's walls, but it was only a mere five minutes. Thus, Barracutus was making his own time. It was an event that could not be explained from both perspectives. Certainly, Barracutus spoke nothing but the truth of his event, and it was far too complex and detailed for it to be considered a dream. However, Eusebius and the others also spoke of the truth. Eventually, time washed it into nothing but faded memories replaced by excitement to arrive at Heaven's Peak.

It was there that Barracutus looked forward to seeing the Temple of Yoj. For the legend of Yoj and Hewhay set the perfect example for love in Sempiterna long ago. Barracutus shared a sentimental feeling for the Wondrous Seven. While on the other hand, the other nine Kyanos Diamon warriors were aroused to partake in the ancient lessons of combat originally taught by Eusebius himself, a prestigious honor in itself to receive such training from an ancient grandmaster.

"You need to get yourself out of your studies for just a little bit my amicus." Horribleecus suggested to Barracutus.

Barracutus placed his book aside and questioned in a light tone, "And what do you suggest I do otherwise while we wait to arrive at Heaven's Peak? To start it is but only a few days away."

"You have always been a gentle spirit," Figmus threw in as he joined the conversation, "But nevertheless, you and Horribleecus have always been my closest amicuses. Despite my lack of traditional brotherhood in your village, I have always looked upon you both as my brothers."

Barracutus and Horribleecus both nodded in agreement to hearing this. After a minute's silence, Barracutus said in hopes to console Figmus, "You have always been welcome among our village by every single Diamon, we were always glad to take you in to be... our own."

Horribleecus also added, "Yes, our village has always welcomed all who were in need. Though, you still have no records of your birth or even your own sire?"

"No," Figmus responded quite quietly and went on, "And even if I had, I would very much like not to speak of it. I feel it has been too long."

Barracutus then stated fondly, "It is quite understandable. A Diamon's past often is one that is shrouded and only revealed to you when Hewhay deems you are ready."

Suddenly, Xeterex entered the room and stated articulately, "I would suggest you return to your quarters. As in approximately just two days we shall arrive at Heaven's Peak." The three Diamons conceded and then each walked into their own quarters. After observing that the guests have each met their needs for the night, Xeterex also walked into his quarters.

Barracutus awoke early the next day before the second sunrise and sat down pondering at the table. He clasped his hands tightly around his book of notes as he tried to think. Tighter.. Tighter his grasp became as he tried to translate the next line from which was written on the Temple of Hewhay. A voice from behind him was heard, "Having trouble?"

Barracutus quickly turned around as if it was an intruder. Right away, Barracutus realized it was Xeterex, calmed down, and stated apologetically, "I am sorry. This part of the translation I've been working on has been taxing my mind for the night, and I could not sleep. I thought I'd have some luck tonight. I only know now that that was wishful thinking of mine."

Xeterex placed himself next to Barracutus as they examined the notes. Xeterex then noticed something and said, "Perhaps it's time that I teach you something?" Barracutus looked at Xeterex as he went on with his story,"When I was studying at the under the great Tarsus, the king of the Nezeligs Slepkavas, he taught me a technique that many ancient languages used. Often times, if something was considered sacred writing, it would be written in different languages throughout. When the change of languages occurs, it is usually at random times within the text. As for how far you've translated; I recognize this only because I understand the next language that it changes to."

"And would you mind if you were to translate it here for me now?"

"Most certainly not. It may take about an hour to get it all down for you, but I assure you that it can be done. I have done it before on our own temple in Heaven's Peak." Xeterex declared a little boastfully. Barracutus watched the next hour as Xeterex was translating the writings. Symbols and lines were drawn all over the pages. Finally, Xeterex finished his translation and handed it to Barracutus. Barracutus withdrew the translation and read the writing,

"Only those with ears listen and only those with eyes can see. The wise shutter in fear at listening to the power of the Word. It has been a blessing to those who know any language and their greatest curse. This is why we have separated ourselves from Sempiterna. The reasons for our absence are many and will most likely be misunderstood, but we will be watching. In the stars beyond there is a key to all things. Open up your minds and see beyond your own self and follow your own footsteps. Let them taste the Blood of Depravity before you corrupt yourself. Once lost, you may choose to be lost and unattainable by your own actions.

Through the deep depths of the mind and through the corruption of the soul... still, we have traveled further. For the Land of Redemption awaits our arrival. Open to all: it is. And shut to those who seek. Surely forgotten we will become, but we must spread this knowledge throughout, and so it will be given and written on the Temple of Yoj our final..."

"Are you sure that's where it ends?" Barracutus asked Xeterex in a spirit of utter annoyance.

"I had a feeling you'd say that." Xeterex said as if he prepared for it and then added, "I will see to it that you'll get a copy of my translation of the Temple of Yoj. Though it is unfinished and quite rough; I should say: I don't go down there as often as I would like to."

Barracutus gave his thanks and walked back into his quarters. The next morning, they would wake up just a day's journey away from Heaven's Peak. Eusebius had promised that he would spend more time with the Kyanos Diamons before they were to arrive in Heaven's Peak. The Diamons all agreed to the king's will, but said it was unnecessary if he should choose not to. Though still, Eusebius was determined to show his gratitude for their deed of coming along. As if he had not shown enough by giving the guests the best he had to offer them. So then, when the next day had reached midday, it was agreed that Eusebius would accompany the Diamons and see to it that they had been treated without ill will.
