a short WB story
I watched impassively, my Champion Kholdur kicked the wretched being before me. My tongue darted around my sharpened teeth; of course he couldn’t see this as I was holding his eyes in my hand. Sila perched on my shoulder screeched her disdain at the broken Lord in front of me. I laughed and dangled an eye before her; which quickly disappeared down her metal encased beak. The fallen lord, his armour a patchwork of clashing colours straightened up slowly on his knees, his powdered face and blue shadowed sockets swung from side to side. He spat a clod of blood at me causing me to duck quickly, Sila cried in alarm flapping about the room, he opened his blood filled mouth and uttered the most perfect laugh imaginable. Kholdur lashed out cracking the purple pink armour he flew forward and laid sprawled before me, his incessant laughter echoing about the gold chased chamber. I lifted him roughly by the throat, and squeezed the laughter stopped immediately and was replaced with the crackling as his blood clod ate through the skulled throne standing triumphantly behind me. I swung him about so I could face the monstrous chair, I watched as the spittle slowly burnt downwards.
“That was the had of a Custodian I had the fortune of showing the true way, Chaos dwells within everything and dedicating yourself to any God, is denying yourself true power, the Gods are not pleased by sole worship!” I throttled Lord Cordon, The defiler of Ophile VII, The Conquistador of Slaanesh, the Whore-monger of the Sister of Holy Light.
The last one especially rankled, I had chosen that Sisterhood to dedicate to all the Gods, or at the very least them, not to Slaanesh but to Chaos Undivided. He had unleashed his unwholesome concubine upon their fortress, they had raped and pillaged, defiled… Luckily one had survived, I watched as she circled about the room eyeing her next morsel, ready to avenge her kin.
“You bastard they were mine, mine to take, mine to mould, mine to defile!” I screamed inches from his sightless visage. The chamber shook as tentacles and pained faces darted about the corners, as it mirrored my mood exactly. I pushed deep into his mind, his psychic powers unable to defend against my unsubtle assault.
“Your mine now though, and I shall tear their tortured souls from Slaanesh’s embrace and just in spite of this gross dishonour I shall throw them to the skull throne of Khorne, he shall find their militaristic belief in the False Emperor especially pleasing” I dropped his body and waited, watching him revive from his self induced coma.
A writhing face of a Daemonette whirled about his armguard, chasing the souls trapped within his armour. A lesser man would be driven insane by chaotic journey, but it gave me a small rush of purpose. The Prince of Pleasure had been especially pleasing to me of late, before his champion had pushed me aside so his savage heathens could claim dominance over those who served Chaos. I had quickly asked Slaanesh for forgiveness and called upon the three other Gods to grant me their blessing to destroy the uninhibited Champion, the rouge vessel of Slaanesh.
Lord Cordon straightened once again and whispered, a haunting whisper as everyone within the room felt like his breath was against their ear
“You think that torturing me will force me to repent, and offer the souls of the Whores of the Emperor to you? “
I waited and realised he wished for an answer
“No, as pain is now meaningless to you, you would realise that Slaanesh has stripped from you what it means to be a traitor to the Emperor. We must be able to feel so our hate and dedication to his doom will fuel the Gods powers, there is beauty within the machinations of Chaos Undivided to brother”
“You think I would give myself over to the brutish power and become the embodiment of Chaos Undivided; you are more deluded than I first believed”
Sila swooped towards me and landed on my outstretched arm, I lovingly stroked her head and cooed sweet sounds to her.
I smiled then whipped my arm about snapping his neck and sending him across the room, a wordless roar of rage ripped through my throat, the pistol that I had drawn without thought loosed a shot. Before it sent his skull fragments to become embedded into the wall, I drove my mind into his and ripped all his memories from his mind, rife with the urge for perfection and overindulgence. As I stood and sorted through looking for the location of the souls, I discovered a few other treasures, chief amongst them a book penned by Fulgrim and Horus.
After an hour, feeling fully drained I searched for Sila, she was just starting to feast on the corpse, the flames that had funnelled from his neck had forced her to wait for her revenge. Kholdur still stood there, relaying commands to my unholy warriors and adjusting his power fist. He was an oddity amongst my force, never openly declaring himself to Chaos, I had salvaged him from a world within the Eye of Terror, he was without armour or mutation and offered himself to my service. Sometimes I wondered if he was a loyalist sent to kill me or if it was an assassin of one of the Legions. He was resistant to my psychic studies but I sensed no ill feelings from him, he radiated dedication, not to Chaos but to me. I loved him like a son though I wished he would have joined Chaos in all its expanse, he was starting to show promise after a duel with a duel with a World Eater he took the magnificent helm and exchanged it for his own which had been chewed by the Khornate Champions axe.
He looked at me and asked “Dark Apostle, where do we spread your word now?”
I glanced at Sila who was still tearing strips from the corrupted corpse; I let her eat for a minute more
“Burn the body and prepare the men, we have souls to dedicate to Khorne and I wish to locate a few of these items to add help me become a stronger son of Lorgar” I turned and sat back down on my throne to sift through more of the fallen Champions memory, to see what else I could exhume from the urban wasteland we would soon be visiting.
Anyway if anyone wants to add C&C or wants me to add more just ask
