Very Bad Things
by Belladain

Sweet nectar of victory.

The fresh blood of their fallen enemies glistening off the torchlight of the Fire Giants Keep, the Rise of Mayhem clan fought back fits of girlish giggling as they began to loot the quickly bloating corpse of Onir of all his valuable possessions

Supreme in their arrogance, or some would say ignorance, they blithely ignored the growing forces of The Seventh Circle arrayed against them. Seething with the burning promise of vengeance, the battle cry of The Seventh Circle pierced the dank, fetid air of the cave leading up to the lair of the giants.

The ringing of cold death echoed through the darkened halls as the Circle approached the scene of carnage. Looming ahead the vast doorway leading into the corridors of the keep.

Sanctified in blood by countless battles past, the dead spirits wailed in terror as Tarasar and Gilathilm, distracted by the momentary glee of stolen treasure, were stunned by the unsheathed blades of Aadain and Xion biting deep into their flesh.

Momentarily, the cold steels never ending thirst for blood was sated......the Circles desire for vengeance far from it.......

Ever confident and ever greedy Bashuu makes the critical mistake of assuming the desire for vengeance would be quenched and his pockets further lined as he selfishly looks at the newcomers, deciding which treasures he would loot first when the battle was completed.

Seconds later, without casting a single spell or landing a single blow with his weapon, the ever pragmatic Bashuu takes his leave of the battle.

Leaving Gilathilm, Karnox and others to fight a losing battle he wished no part of.

Could his participation have swayed the outcome into Mayhems favor?

Who's to say?

This is not the first time Bashuu has left his allies in the heat of an undecided battle, nor will it likely be the last.

Long life and riches to those devious enough to avoid a possible losing fight, yet his allies remain loyal after he has clearly deserted and betrayed them.

With Bashuu's exit, those left put up a gallant struggle.

Karnox, Gilathilm, Tarasar, 2.Ojom and other fought valiantly but without the assistance of Bashuu , Tarasar quickly fell in a strangled gasp of frothy blood.

A very short time later the strangely high pitched death cry of Sekieli could be heard along with the final gasp of Gilathilm as the spark of life was stolen from him.
