“Have you noticed, noticed how unruly the waves have been?” The grey haired Liafador asked, sitting at the table surrounded by; the most dignified members of the Liafadors. This meeting was called, the Liafador Summit; many of these men belong to the Red Cardinals, A group secretly helping those prosecuted by the Inquisition.
“Have you heard, The English Crown has begun shipping enslaved Africans to her colonies? I fear we are entering our last days; things are getting worse.”
“Oh, things are just beginning gramps” Cat’s voice echoed throughout the room. She appeared from the darkness, wearing “Day of the Dead” make up. With swift nerve reaction; the Liafador men drew their weapons on Cat. “Who are you, and what are you doing here?!” One screamed, directing his blade towards Cat’s chin.
“Cardinals…” She whispered, and without haste; the room filled with Cardinals in shadow form. “This…this is slightly ironic” Cat said, switching slightly around the room; sensually teasing her ancestors. “This group is male dominated, but you males barley exist in the future” She explained, taking a seat on her ancestor’s lap.
“What do you want!?” he screamed, somewhat disgusted; Cat shifted a bit; drawing a reaction from his tights. A slight smirk contort her lips as, she flipped her hair.
“This thing you guys are doing…it’s not useful, you don’t need to help the Muslims; or the Jews; you need to help yourselves. There is a secret order in France; working to end all the good you believe you’re doing. The Order of Sancta Camisa, will be the death of the Red Cardinals…unless you act now”
The confusion they showed, confirmed Cat’s suspicion. “How will we know who is in this order?”
“Trust me, I’ll show you exactly who the enemy is” None of them seemed 100% ready to trust her, but against their best judgment; they agreed anyways. In a few years the pit would be founded, it’s location under these steps. In the present this spiraled tower no longer exist. Cat lead the way down the spiraled stairway, but a woman caught her eye.
“Go to the carriage, I wish to speak with Ms. Marisol” Cat placed her hand on, the shoulder of the Liafador Family servant. Pushing a piece of hair behind her ear, she slowly leaned into Marisol’s ear. “Your services are no longer needed” with a quick thrust of her fist, her hand transformed into a darkness spike; and impaled the ancestor of Isabella Marisol; Ziccarra’s best friend.
The Queen of Eden, turned towards the carriage, but was called by her shadow. Watching as he slowly, walked from the darkness, she placed her hands on her hips slightly irritated.
“Mistress, if the OSC and The Red Cardinals go to war; won’t you cease to exist?” He asked, stilled bowed. “Not at all, by the time I return to the present; I will be at the center of all consciousness. Ziccarra and Quintus will never be married, Isadora won’t exist. The universe will reformat itself to fix the paradox, it’s why we must find that treasure”
The Shadow opened a portal aboard one of the many slaves ships transversing the Atlantic Ocean. His presence caused an uproar, but he was not scathed by the conditions. They were tightly packed this system was based on the fact that the more slaves they had, the more profit they could make. They carried as many slaves as their ship could carry, and often more. The slaves were chained ankle to wrist, with barely any place to move.
Extending his hands outward, the shadow broke the shackles that bonded the slaves; almost immediately they began to rush the deck. Those who knew the nature of their liberator, jumped overboard; believing their souls would return to the motherland.
However those that wanted redemption stood behind the shadow, ready to fight for freedom. The battle could be heard from the hold; the colonist fired their weapons at, the would-be slaves, but were infective with Cat’s darkness protecting them.
They took the ships with little to no effort, and were on course to land at Jamestown within a few days. The slaves stood huddled around the darkness awaiting his orders. He said, nothing but showed up a simple sketch. The moment they hit land, they would be in direct violation of the British Crown.
“Around the time that, Columbus stumbled into the Caribbean, there was an ancient treasure found by the Templars. This treasure was called Tanis. Tanis was believed to be the first humanized machine, which the pope used to cleanse indulgences. The Templars placed this machine on one of the ships, and sent it to the new world. It wasn’t until the mayflower compact that the Templars retrieved this treasure.
Cat explained via, portal to her shadow; just to explain what she was looking for. “This machine contains the anti-life equation” She said, perched atop a building, the Red Cardinals had entered, Paris looking for those members of the Knighfall bloodline. To achieve perfection in the future, she needed them ended.
