Excerpt from John Shaft’s mind
...So finally after spending half the day watching these native people who worship this God Amestra who I believe is nothing more than a false idol I find myself with Remis outside of this known hangout for the people who dont believe in Amestra. Remis comes up with this idea to get inside the hangout and do some investigating. I did believe it to be a good idea because these people could probably tell us some valuable information. Its a tightly run hangout with guards out front both wearing purple cloaks. Part 2 of Remis plan was to jump to people going in or out and take their cloaks and go inside. Good plan i thought as we both jab knives into the necks of our victims. We cover our faces and approach the door, they were aprehensive to letting us in but once inside i soon realized that we made a huge mistake. Im about to shit bricks because theirs like 20 guns pointed in our faces. Theirs something really unsettling about 20 drunk guys pointing guns at you. Once guy yells “Theirs a B on your cloak” and said “Of course their is, i love bees…” and he said no a letter B because thats Boris’s cloak! I soon realized that their is also a C on Remis’s cloak that stood for Charles….Dammit we killed those two chumps and stuffed them in a dumpster…I calm the drunks down by telling them Boris and Charles gave us these cloaks because they wanted to get new ones and Remis chimed in and said they gave them to us so that we could get in. So the man said “you will stand their until they show up” and we said “ok, can i have a drink?”. They didnt give me my drink and Remis and I knew boris and charles would never show up and we were majorly boned. we stood their for a hour and at one point Remis offered them cocaine, so i took the bag and cut out some lines and Remis and I went blew a fat fucking rail and got geeked up as shit. I thought everything was going fine, things were starting to look up and that we might be able to get away with this one untill one guy couldnt handle his blow and started having a seizer right their on the floor. Things went from bad to worse right their and didnt get any better as i someone landing a crushing blow to the back of my head knocking me out.
I awoke later in a daze as my hands and feet were both tied as i was laying on the floor. Remis next to me as well. I thought “things couldnt get any worse now so fuck it, i dont give a shit, if im gonna die im gonna raise hell before i go out. This idea was starting to come into full effect when this big ass mofo with arms as big my thighs, comes down and picks me and ask me what i did to Boris. I pretty much tell him to fuck off and i lost a couple of teeth for it. But i didnt care as it happens 2 more times and im beating to within a inch of my life and two deep breaths from slipping out of conscience. After he leaves im proud of myself for i didnt tell that bastard that i killed his friend. From point on things really start to go crazy…Next thing you know the air is getting really cold and I hear the voice of that flute playing blone panzy doppelgager who said “nice to see you again”. Next thing i know the room turns to ice and im encased in a igloo and blackout again. Im thinking as this happens, wtf is going on here. I cant believe this is happening and somehow im not dead yet. At this point i really regret this boneheaded idea of Remis’s.
I awoke later again wondering where the hell am i gonna be this time. I open my eyes to see that im in a room with 2 guards at the door and im shackled to the wall with metal chains. At this point im feeling good because im alive so their must be a purpose i havent fulfilled yet. Im ready for anything that walks in this room. I yell to one of the guards to get a chair to sit in, he pays me no mind, I then call his mother a fat whore. The first guy that comes in is talking to me about what i think of their God Amestra, i tell him nothing he really wants to hear. Im just glad he didnt ask me about what happened to Boris, i was almost ready to crack and tell that guy i killed him. The next guy who enters is a old man who pains scales all over the walls, i mock him and he just smiles and says he loves to paint. The next guy who comes in is some ginger bitch with a hot rod with a brand of a balance scale on it. He heats it up with bare hands as I think “oh shit that thing has my name written all over it.” It did. He jabs it right into my chest as i yell in pain and pass out again. This is when the story get crazy. When i open my eyes all i see is white nothingness for as far as my eyes can see inn any direction. I know im not in the same world anymore. I actually thought i was dead. The next thing i see is the god ive been hearing so much about Amestra who is holding a scale in one hand and sword in the other while wearing a blind fold. I think to myself no way shes real. She asked me what i wanted more than anything and i said, i just want balance. Her scale tips to one side and said “your gonna have to give something in order to get what you want, your soul should do quite nicely”. She reaches out her hand and these long black nails started to grow and she began to reach for my chest. Right as that happens a man wearing gold and green armor with lions on his chest plate appears outta no where and grabs her arm and punches the hell out of her and sends her flying. He says to me his name is lion el jonson as he extends he hand out to me. I shake his hand and said “thanks for getting that bitch off of me”. He tell me that the fall of mankind is about to happen to if i dont get to this plant called meadin and find this antidote and give to this man named Roboute Guliliman who can apparently save the human race somehow. He must really think im special to save my soul and to give me this task. My jaw is still on the floor as i cant believe all of this happening and i really have no idea what is happening. So jonson takes his leave right as that bitch stumbles to her feet, things are starting to get blurry again as she quickly extends her claw hand out and grabs my face and cruses me as struggle to pull her hand away, as i fad out i flip that bitch the bird come too back shackled back the wall looking at fire crotch. I stand their as i realized ive just been touched by a angel. My body feels invigorated and stonger as my chest is still glowing red from the brand. I feel as though their is a new untapped energy lurking deep inside me.
