Aberon smirked as the Omega Wave struck hard against the Ancient being, yet just as quickly, he was subject to the gravitational bindings brought about by the magic circle the machine had implemented below him.
“Such… pitiful bindings…”
He spoke under the weight.
The energies by no means were of any risk to him immediately, yet the force of it made it more of a nuisance than anything else. Though even then, it wouldn’t last long, as he could hear the voices reaching across the dimensions and space, and gave another smirk. He knew not exactly what they came from, but the effects of it were becoming clear as day to him, and likely the others around him. As the bindings lessened around him, he straightened his voice and grinned at Volkruss.
“Humans are… quite interesting, are they not?”
Aberon spoke to Volkruss as the circle faded and the gravity that held him in place subsided.
“Far too interesting to be erased as a whole. They always find some way to surprise you.”
It seemed evident that Volkruss’ power was beginning to wane, and the Shin Nazgadd grew weaker as the negative energy began to escape from its form. Perhaps it was about time to finish this whole ordeal, and perhaps even take back a bit of what was originally his. His face grew serious, and he was finally getting serious.
“Return to the origin.”
The sword Zephirut held began to fade away, and Aberon shifted his hands to his side. As if from the aether around him began to condense and be drawn into the core of his machine. Aberon was he who created this world, and throughout it, his power laid dormant, waiting. He would enact his authority as ‘God’ and eliminate this threat to his world.
No more than a flickering visage that for but a brief moment appeared around Aberon, the image of his ‘true’ form appeared to all present. Perhaps incomprehensible to the average human who knew little of the ancients and gods, but for the God of Destruction, the Apostle of the Giants, and the servant of the Angel, a great draconic form that dwarfed all present; even the prior form of the god of destruction paled in size to the momentary visage. Though as quickly as it became visible, the image vanished from sight. From then, the energy flowed outward and began to swell in its hands before it reached out as if to grasp Shin Nazgadd in its entirety.
“By my Authority as Aberon, the creator of this world and all who live in it, I shall make my decree. You, Volkruss, a being who shouldn’t exist, who's existence is a sin in itself, I sentence you to oblivion. From nothing from whence you came, to nothing you shall return.”
In the palm of his hand, the form of Shin Nazgadd began to take shape, as if it was but a mini-sized version that fit in his hand. At the same time, the space around Shin Nazgadd would begin to contort before being torn open and being folded over the machine, encapsulating it whole. Zephirut would slowly begin to squeeze its hands together around Mini-Nazgadd, encapsulating and later crushing the image in its hands.
Paralleling Zephirut’s action, the space that surrounded Shin Nazgadd began to ‘shrink’ around the machine, slowly compacting and crushing that which was within it.
“Lao… ‘tis unfortunate things ended this way. I can only say I’m disappointed in you.”
Aberon spoke to himself with a frown on his face.
Zehn Gebote remained persistent around Volkruss, continually crushing and holding the machine where it was until it was no more.
Vayne on the other hand, took this as his time to make an exit, perhaps his help was hardly needed from the very beginning. Though perhaps he took pleasure in watching the great and mighty Volkruss crumble before him, it was possibly worth enough for him to have stayed the time he did. Nonetheless, he could only imagine things would be getting busy in the coming days, there was much preparation he needed to do.
“Thy fate is sealed. And I shall take my leave. ‘Twas a pleasure, Lao.”
With his final remarks, a dimensional rift appeared behind Azrael, and Vayne shifted backwards into it, vanishing from sight, shortly before the rift did as well.
