Choosing this at the last minute and going with more Yola Biggs silliness. How did this happen? What is happening? Who is the other woman? Find out when The Merchant of Nevra Coil is release in August. Of course that’s barring any delays since we all know I have bad deadline luck. Something always goes askew.
Yola whistles as her eyes flutter open, their color shifting from white to red to a swirling pink. She sits up to look around the strange landscape of dark stone, moist sand, and cracked coral. Turning her head to the sky, the goddess is amused that all she can see is the inky darkness of the ocean depths. Fish and other marine creatures lie dead throughout the circular area, including an enormous hammerhead shark. More of the predators are swimming on the other side of the watery dome that surrounds the patch of dry, uneven land. Yola walks to the edge of the clearing and reaches out to pet one of the deadly animals, but a shock of pain shoots through her body when she touches the wall. She stomps her foot like an impudent child, which shakes the ground and sends a ripple throughout the ocean.
Curious and bored, the trapped deity claps her hands over her head and hears someone imitate the noise behind her. Turning only her upper body, Yola sees Aeriel standing a few yards away. The other woman’s body is in the same position as the Chaos Goddess, so her face is hidden from view. When Yola spins her lower half to match her torso, her companion imitates the maneuver and wavers on her feet. The green-haired deity moves in a circle, which is matched by her rival and reveals that Aeriel is still unconscious. Recognizing the fun she can have, the Chaos Goddess stretches her arms. In perfect synch, the Insanity Goddess performs every step, scratch, and silly dance that Yola does. With a cruel smile, the mischievous woman gets Aeriel to tie her red and silver hair in large knots. Wondering how far she can go, she pulls her arm off and squeals with joy when the snoring deity does the same.
“Limb fight!” Yola shouts, swinging her arm like a club. She forgets about the other side of this new game, so she is stunned when her enemy smacks her in the face. “This isn’t fun anymore. I want to go home, but we’re tangled. Wake up, little goddess. Come on. At least say something and entertain me.”
Yola reattaches her arm and swiftly approaches the other goddess, the two nearly ramming into each other. Aeriel remains unconscious even when she is tickled and her rival licks her cheek with a long, sloppy tongue. Every action is repeated on the Chaos Goddess, who gets annoyed and smacks the other woman across the face. She is ready for the incoming attack and ducks quickly, which is mimicked by her puppet and causes the blow to connect. Feeling more malicious and frustrated by the second, Yola searches for a tool and grins when she finds a large, dead sea urchin. She backs away to lead her enemy to the spikey creature, being careful not to trip and ruin her plan. When Aeriel is in position, she is made to pick up the dangerous animal and slap it on her rear. The spines pierce the silver gown of the Insanity Goddess and her crimson eyes fly open from the jolt of pain.
