Familiar Spirit by MorbidFedus Familiar Spirit by MorbidFedus


...Gah! It is freezing... My nostrils are utterly frozen as I begin to breathe through my mouth the tormenting, sharp frost.
It is not as cold for my body as it is hard to breathe it.
Misty ice fog pushes me off my feet as I am trying to push against it. My squinted eyes, filled with snow as I am trying to observe a possible shelter or cover. The situation is most uncomfortable and wasteful energy drain.
If I won't be successful in finding cover soon - I'll have to return to my human body.
As I marched with stuttering in my head I started to feel the presence of something. The storm began to calm down as I looked around and turned behind me. I notice a figure, walking on four...glowing? Both eyes shined as crystals. One eye with turquoise blue and other with bloody red stalked me, but I felt no sense of danger as the feral being was walking calmly towards me.
Many things surged through my mind: what could it be, what does it want, why it follows...was it that which summoned me?
I felt confused and bit in shock. I stopped and waited for its approach as for it was about hundred meters away from me moving with locked blue, red sockets directly at me.
My feet began to feel coldness as I stood still.
I began to look around if there's anything else around but it was just hills, rocks and snow.
Strangely a sound arrived in my ear...a strange sound indeed.
I began to hear some sort of electric buzz and a hard pounding bit further behind me. It was not a comforting blast and yet something unknown awaits me in front of me. It is finally close enough for me to get a good glimpse.
It was a cat family animal, at first, I thought of a panther or a leopard, but as the distance in between us grew tin I realized something.
I recognized the cat, it was Linx, the beautiful and wise-eyed beast.
Bit shaking I welcomed him. I knew the cat, it was my familiar in my past lives. It was bizarre that I was capable of forgetting such kind friend, but those things happen in odd worlds. Yet after everything we were united again.
Ser Linx stopped and we exchanged thoughts. It was a split second as it happened as I became aware of many things that happened.
I did not know what separated us, when I died and who I was. There was a lot of things to think about and uncover, but simply no time.
My current state does not allow me to stay in astral plane with such harsh conditions for a long time.
The blasting and buzzing had not disappeared yet and I was curious to investigate as Ser Linx advised.
I grew a strong feeling that it was Linx that found me and summoned me for this very reason.
We began to walk towards the sounds.
My head is rushing with thoughts, but I am calm and steady.
As we came nearer an immense tension began to possess me.
My body became stiffer and stiffer with closing in on it.
We walked up the hill that had a great light pouring from its top.
An odd place with odd things happening there.
The source of lights was some strange underground tunnels filled with it. It was it that was radiating the buzzing noise and because of the broken tunnels and the light pouring out, I felt a tremendous tension Ser Linx pointed out to my surprise as I realized I was right about it summon.
We walked around the crater on the hill and there were more life forms than just us. I instantly noticed the blue transparent like beings.
If I am correct they must be the Ethereal wizards I have encountered in my past. They never struck me as aggressive or violent, but there was something unsettling about their kind.
They all seemed cold and almost robot-like to me.
What we saw there was villainous.
They had hundreds of slave spirits which they used to gather the light from the broken tunnels. They have broken the tunnels with their strange apparatus. It was huge and loud.
The spirits were suffering there the enormous amount of voltage coming from the tunnels. Some spirits dealt with it better than others as they were more adapted to it, but some had faced their doom there... I am not certain of what was happening to them, but they seemed drained as they were draining the light.
''When the spirit would sag the Etherials will pick them up and take away with their blue orbs towards the machine where they will face their condemnation'' said Ser Linx.
They are transformed into the primal state of creation and harvested as well as the light from the tunnels.
As I looked around and looked at Linx watching calmly as if he was biting the time for revenge I noticed one of the Ethereals looking our direction. He began to move towards us as did others. There were hundreds if not thousands moving towards our position.
Fear and adrenaline overwhelmed me! I began to breathe quickly and we ran. We both knew it was not a place and time to be heroes...
It would only lead to our ends.
As we ran downhill with swiftness Linx yelled: Jump on!
I jumped on its back holding around it body not to fall down. They were on to us, but we were much faster in the situation. My body was so stressed out that I began to lose control and started to fade away from the realm back to my body on earth.
Before departing I just said: ''Be careful Linx, I'll be back'' as I faded and woke up in my flesh nervous and uneasy.
...


The textures I used are my own. Most of it is drawn and painted by me.

Honestly, I don't remember how I made it. It was pretty much trancelike state.
