“Did you receive the pulse of Elsker’s first move?” asked the general of Evil’s army to the cursed warrior. Considered to be the most prominent person in his Army, he was among the legendary clan of the Manas Putras, in his past life. Known to be an exceedingly evil man, he was the favorite disciple of Lord Evil. Elsker was in search of this warrior since long. He only came in contact with him during the parallel connectivity of their thoughts. A process which is almost unattainable, produces a tremendous effect on one. If mishandled, could lead to chaos. Parallel thinking induces thoughts and emotions that flow on the same level as that of another person, to the same person. One can travel through a wave of ideas parallelly, given that the two people share a similar motive. The induced thoughts may or may not contradict the original ideas of a person. They also might be false and deceitful.
The warrior looked at the general with a calm face and said, “Yes.”
Turning his face away from the general, he maintained a calm and confident voice and continued, “He is trying to unearth the City of Lost Souls. A smart move…” he said. “Well…two cannot play a fair game, general. It’s time to play my cards.”
There was a long pause in which the warrior succumbed to deep thinking.
“We shall lead him to the city of lost souls.” said the cursed warrior finally.
The warrior knew that Elsker would eventually find out about this. He suspected that Elsker wanted the same as well.
The general looked stunned. “But, how are we going to benefit with this move?” he asked.
“Once the city is discovered, we can plan an attack on both the souls and the people. As far as my suspicions are concerned, Elsker would try to keep them safe and probably guide them to build their houses near the mountain. But he would be too late…they wouldn’t be able to learn the Varma Kalai in such a short span of time,” and then, turning his face towards the general, his face a picture of evil, with a sly half smile running on his lips, he mouthed darkly, “…no one will be spared..”
“General, arrange for Asura and few other spirits to begin the attack on the mountain as soon as possible,” ordered the cursed warrior. As he left he turned back and added, “Of course the attack must be intended to open the voyager’s eyes that the existence of the souls and their art is very much real and not a nightmare that he assumes it to be.” He silently walked away.
