Omnipotent: A Saiyuki Role Playing Community
Even after the room had been emptied of all but Zenon and himself, the phantom glow of divine auras hardly diminished – what little power Gairu and his minions had paled in comparison. Zenon and he had lived for many, many years, and those years weighed heavily on their immortal souls. The demons Homura had subjugated, on the other hand, were still in the cycle of reincarnation, still waiting to break out of samsara - compared to the Sanzo party, they were nothing. Sanzo and his companions were the candle, while Gairu and his henchmen were the moths that would immolate themselves upon that flame. |
At one point, Shien suspected he would have protested, however subserviently, against such a frivolous waste of life. Now, however, he was only glad to see the crowd of once-demons gone. They had a purpose to serve, after all – to buy Homura time, to let them start the invocations that would ultimately bring the new world into being.
The god turned his head, just a fraction, towards the dark flicker that was his companion. “We return to Homura,” he stated simply, calmly. “We must initiate the first stage of the procedure for the new world.”
