Fragment of a Symphony: The Mending of a Broken Girl ~ Part I
“Come closer, let me mend your wounds.” the ever calm voice of Marius flooded her broken ears. Ashtoreth was led by the hand of an Cyberian Knight back into The Womb where her severe wounds would be mended. The injured Apprentice felt drowsy and numb as the egg-shaped tank began to fill up with gooey, strange smelling blue liquid. With weary eyes, Ashtoreth looked up at Marius who resided inside on the top end of The Womb, his partly humanoid and partly squid like form lowering himself using his tentacles before her.
“That’s right. Breathe slowly and calmly, in and out. Relax.” Ashtoreth relaxed as instructed and let her weary eyes close themselves. A few minutes after the deep and invigorating sleep, a cold and flexible robotic tentacle gently prodded her on the shoulder.
“I’m sorry, but this must be done. Your body is quite damaged and this is the only way to repair it completely and properly.” what the girl saw coming towards her made both her mind and body jolt to complete wakefulness in unison.
