Excerpt From The Past
"I am sorry you had to see that, but it could not be helped. But...it no longer matters. He is back where he belongs and I am now here once more to bring you to justice. However, it is different this time. You can already tell that I have replicated your powers...which means you no longer have the high ground. We are equals in power and if we continue to fight each other as equals...then everything around us is going to die. You have already destabilized the fabric of time and space in my reality, now the effect is spreading into others." Cifer stopped for a second began rubbing his right hand in an attempt to relieve the pain he was feeling. Cifer was a master of energy manipulation and he was capable of doing incredible things with that energy such as replicating the abilities of others upon taking some of their power.
But he had never taken a God-like power, the kind of power that directly defied Divine Law, into himself and tried to use it against a foe...nor would he ever do so again. It was said that his ability to absorb energy was infinite, that it had no upper limit, that theory might have applied to lesser sources of energy but not energy like this. To him...the power to defy Divine Law...was like poison. He could already fell his body dying, but it was dying slowly, he had more than enough time.
"Mary Kinomoto...you know that what I have said, what I have been saying, is the truth. You are destroying existence with your uncontrollable powers, I know you are aware of this fact, but yet you have done nothing to stop it. Why is that? Is it because you think that just because all who have died come from another reality that their lives do not matter? That you are more important than the trillions of men, women and children that have died, are dying and are about to die?" Cifer took in a deep breath and then exhaled as he continued on. "You are not God, Ms. Kinomoto...it is not your right to decide who gets to live and who gets to die. It is not your right to determine which course History shall take...but yet you are doing it anyways. They say that absolute power corrupts absolutely, while you may not be able to see it...I can."
As he sheathed his blade Cifer began taking a couple steps towards Charmix. "You have allowed yourself to subconsciously become addicted to your own power. The addiction has already manifested itself in your refusal to believe that everything you saw in my mind was the truth. Your defiant and violent actions towards me are also a sign of addiction. You need to be cleansed and that is exactly why I have come to take you back with me to The 31st Century. You need to be removed from your power for an extended period of time, you need to undergo rehabilitation, and once we have given you those powers back you need to be taught how to...nnngghh...t-to...properly control your abilities so that we can avert further disasters like this one! Please, listen to me!" Cifer's vision began to blur as the pain within him grew more and more intense, blood began to trickle down from out of his ears, mouth, nose and tear ducts.
The end is drawing near. Cifer can feel it, he can feel the poison that Charmix calls power killing him. There is no denying it, he is going to die. But he would be forever damned if he died without completing his mission. The fate of not just his Universe but countless others as well rests on his shoulders. But as he looks Charmix in the eyes he knows that she is not going to listen, he can feel it, she did not listen the first time despite knowing what he said was true. Why would she listen now? And then he remembers.
"Rejection of Phenomena...I...I can, right now, reject anything that has happened like she can...but...even Rejection of Phenomena, that power which defies Divine Law, is not enough to reverse the sheer amount of damage that has been done. I need...I need to...I need to hit a Reset Button. I have absorbed Mary Kinomoto's powers, replicated her abilities...and as a result a portion of her aura has masked my existence. The Universe does not "see" Cifer Arokine standing before Mary Kinomoto. It only "sees" Mary Kinomoto standing before Mary Kinomoto and if t-that is true...then I can fix everything by merely making skin-to-skin physical contact with her. It will be as if two things are trying to occupy the same space at the same time. A temporal paradox will wipe out all of existence and then everything will reset itself." As Cifer ran this information through and processed all of it in his mind he fired up his Iron Fist and began rushing towards Charmix. "Of course...no one other than Mary Kinomoto and myself will remember this day ever happened, but perhaps that is for the best, now...I just have to make physical contact with her."
He failed, but the young girl known as Charmix reverse the damaged she inflicted throught out the world. " I hope to see you again......." she said, her words restored all that was lost, or so it seemed. The rift instead went through a series of phases like a butterfly. It's cocoon stage, in which it supposely reverse all the damage it did due to Charmix's magic. But to spare herself and other's of such an atrocity she visited the shop of the Wish maker. To exact her wish, but it came with a price in order for it to follow through. Of course the scared fragile girl complied and went throughly with it, at the cost she had to give something in return for compensation. Something that was valuable to her and worth more than anything: her memories. While the wish agreement was in place and set, Mary unconsciously disrupted the spell before she lost her powers and memories. In the aftermath of such her body materialized out of existence and was place in the event-horizon, lost between worlds and time.
Which such a strange occurrence, normally the natural order would ignore this error, but instead tried to fix it as it was an unnatural situation. While not the real Charmix was returned, instead she was replace by other's of the same genetic code and face but from a different world. Upon being transported to her home reality they were flaws that were needed to be fix, she ended up with the mindscape of the original Charmix thus assuming she was the only one and real Charmix but with different origins. Soon another witch with the exact same face appeared due to the dimensional inconsistency, Yuki Helena Rose who came to be known as Moonglow. Who soon became possess by the embodient of magic, Hymesi. With human emotions and the corruption she felt in the world she claimed that her goal was to cleanse both "magic and life". With the weaken barriers in time, she scattered the Vine Titans to the four winds, only soon returned to witness Moonglow's death by Alyssa. More Charmixs' arrive while the previous died due to time catching up and the process repeated it self, time was in a state of flux and paradox. Now the current Charmix mantel bearer belongs to Cecilia Hsu.
The magical scab tears itself again, to complete it's final stage. The strange wound began building, the pressue of such was stiring full like a massive volcano ready to burst, enough to annhilate another solar system and endanger timelines and creating the gap that was once present. Instead of "fixing", Mary's magic manipulated the fields of time/space around the fissure, thus containing but not stopping it entirely. The witch's enchantments and containment spell were slowly fading. The unnatural pheromone was feeding from the same source that allowed it's existence: magic. The large mystical cocoon finally burst out in pure magic. Severely altering the flow of the mystical flux.
From millions of miles away, Cecilia feels this. Her body begins to shake as she can feel her morning breakfast coming back up for a delightful surprise. After a struggle to keep it down, she vomited. Just as she did, she felt her connection to the Goddesses that help deploy her magic was now gone, the line between them thinned out and disappeared. "Ooh my god!" she said dropping her mouth open as she opened her eyes wide to stare at her surrounding that now had completely changed. The soft green lushes park she was now in warped to a different zone: a desert. Her eyes saw the work of magic behind this all, and she quickly felt the now uncontrolled force touching her and others around the world. Nature and it's beings (animals) felt it as well and some dying from the nature of it.
With but a thought along with gestures and a spoken word, she teleported herself to her home, in hopes of looking through her grimoire to find out what the cause of this unbalance was.
Far away in another dimension, the confused entity known as Hymesi, feels the effect of the rift as well. Causing her to become more dulusional and salvage. Using the now thin veil that binds worlds, realities, and dimensions apart. She successfully breaks through to the world where Charmix inhabits, the same method she used when she scattered the Vine Titans throughout time. Now even more less sane, she bent herself with the hopes of finding her long lost companion.
