    It would be better...
    By Rita Maria Felix da Silva



    "Maybe the approach?" – pondered Quentin Whitehill for the infiniteth time - "Quantically is perfect. It should work...”

    He wished to desist, but he continued to revise the experiment. It seemed he already had made this during an eternity, however now he felt near of his purpose: to improve the world forever.

    (Sometimes, he remembered the dream, the one ended in a big explosion. But, he repressed this memory soon. (“Illusion caused by the tiredness” – he justified for himself).

    Hidden, the demon brothers A-d-b-o and A-k-s-o watched the scientist.

    “Somebody should tell to him.”- suggested A-d-b-o.

    “Do you mean to tell he’s in Hell and destroyed the Earth while was searching "the source of perfect energy"? Oh, no! It’d be too cruel! The time changed, we’re this way no more. If we do so, we just would give motive for bad things continue being said against our kind.

    Lottar Gan Amon
    By Rita Maria Felix da Silva



    Lottar Gan Amon... Sleeping in Earth’s core. Defined by himself as a god. The mightiest being in the whole Creation. Without worshipers. Forgot by the stories, while the humankind innocently spread itself on the world.

    He loves only himself and excessively. His heart is evil like the Devil, whom he slew a little more than an eternity ago. He accumulates power and fury, dreams of fire and apocalypse, and longs the awakening day, to extinguish all what lives, until only remains... Lottar Gan Amon...

    One last word
    By Rita Maria Felix da Silva

    09: 00 AM... Church of Mary’s Sacred Heart. Sao Bento da Trindade, Pernambuco, Brazil:

    “Father Jose, I’ve seen in my dream: God has lost his patience with the humankind at last and he said ‘Enough!’ And the world’s going to end today.

    “Cassiano, since you are a little boy you suffers theses… Deliriums. Understand this: you are not a saint or any biblical prophet.... You need a psychiatrist.”

    “But, Father, It’s going to happen! And I’d to tell somebody.”

    “Sincerely... Forgive me: look at all these persons in this file. They want to confess too. Go away and have a nice day!”

    14:00 PM... Studio of the TV Station St. Anna, Bulletin News “Now News”, last broadcast… Sao Paulo City, Brazil:

    “... Simultaneous catastrophes on the whole globe. The number of deaths is counted in millions and religious groups already are speaking about the End of World...”

    Too Late
    By Rita Maria Felix da Silva


    Samia waited Allors for almost five years. He returned irrevocably wound, fell down from the saddle and the young woman run to help him.

    “I die because of my foolishness”, he lamented, “Instead to stay here with you and to be happy, I looked for the Adebe-on-Ugir, The Ancient People’s language, one of the power and magic. A lie. I have made enemies in East. Some of them have followed me.

    From the horizon fifty horsemen came. They surrounded Samia and Allors soon.

    Samia looked at those foreigners. She pronounced three words and they fell down horribly shredded.

    “What...?” questioned Allors.

    “Adebe-on-Ugir. My ancestors spoke it. I swore I would not use it.
    It served for war and vengeance, not to save lives.”

    Allors smiled and died.

    Samia wept and pronounced other word. Then flames covered those lovers’ bodies.

            :) Thanks, Morgan!
            I am particularly pride about "Too Late"
            "Lottar Gan Amon" is inspired by Norse Mythology (Surtur) and H.P. Lovecraft.
            "One last word" is very unpretentious.
            "It would be better" is another story of mine with the Whitehill Family http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitehill.

                Ah, Rita-Maria I'm not very much use at questions like that. Perhaps because I'm a Libran I can never decide or make my mind up. They are all very different but I couldn't put one above another.

                    Hi RitaMaria! It's been a while since I got to spend some time in the Enclave. I'm glad you're still posting! I have a lot to catch up on...

                    I really liked your Lottar Gan Amon. It really evoked those mythical Norse images for me. It brings to mind the thoughts I had while reading Neil Gaiman's American Gods, on the power of belief--upon which even the gods depend.

                      Doc,

                      Welcome back to the Enclave!
                      Thanks.
                      Lottar Gan Amon is very influencied by two sources: specialy Surtur's myth of the Norse Mythology and there is a lovecraftian tone in this story.
                      I still have not read "American Gods", but it is in my list of future readings.
                      I will publish other texts of mine here soon.
