Those were the last words I heard from my father, just before I was swept away by the currents of nothingness.
When I came to, I was in perpetual darkness.
”Where am I? I can’t see a thing here…”, I said ”Am I dead…? No... I can still feel my arms moving. I can still touch myself. I must be alive then, but - where am I?”
Suddenly countless voices began to speak, ‘’”You are in my realm, dear child. Our realm. You are within me. Within us.”
”What? What do you mean? I don’t understand?”
”This is the Void, my dear. I am the Void. We are the Void”, their voices echoing into the eternal darkness. With that, I try to crawl away.
Then, tentacles began to wrap themselves around me. I tried to fight back, but they were too much for me. I flail and scream, but to no avail.
Then she speaks again, “Do not fear child, we will bring no harm unto you. We will mend your broken heart. We will provide what your father could not.”
The words rush through my head. What my father could not? What could that be? I’ve had a good life, a simple one, but a good one nonetheless. He had given me everything I wanted except…
”The love of my father...”, and, as if by response, the tentacles fade into shadows.
”Yes", they said, "Your father always left you and your mother alone, wandering about the desert, looking for the unattainable. Well, now he has it, and look at the costs."
I stay silent, refusing to think any ill thoughts against my father. They know this, and present those themselves.
"Your mother left you, your grandmother left dead, and your father might be have gone as well. No longer human, he is now but a product of his own foolish dreams. Now he is more obsessed with sealing us away, he has absolutely no time for you anymore."
My eyes start to swell with tears. I try to hold them back but to no avail.
They then take the form of my mother. She opens her arms wide and floats towards me, and she embraces me. I cry away at her shoulders
She then speaks with one woman’s voice, "What he does not know is that we are salvation to a dying world. Runeterra has long been a world of chaos and despair for hundreds of years. Once we purify it from the rest of the universe, no longer will its taint ruin the lives of its inhabitants. Their cries will cease, and their sorrows will fade forever. No one will ever suffer again, my dear."
I consider this for a moment. Purify? Does she mean to remove the magical chaos? Or… destroy the world…? Once their is no one left, no one will be able to hurt or be in pain anymore. We’d all be dreaming. Dreaming our perfect reality in the next life. We’ll finally be together if we wanted it. No more worries about anything else. I’ll finally be with my family again.
She then raises my head, touches my forehead, and looks at me straight in the eyes with a face of motherly love. “Let us become one, dear child. Together we can make this world better for everyone. We will grant them their blissful new ‘beginning’ ”, she says.
I try to get off her embrace but my body won’t move. It seemed as if it refused to obey. ”Yes”, What? I didn’t say that!?
”Let us become one... Give them the end to their agony”, That’s not me! I’m not saying any of those! What's happening?!
“LET US BECOME ONE!”, No! I refuse! I won't! I...! I...!
"Slumber well, my mortal soul... For when you next awaken, we will be in blissful nothingness..."
My mind... Its... slipping... No... please... Don't...
