THE SECOND SIGHT 3
When the attack from Duke Swallows came, it was as vicious and damaging as Boat had imagined it would be.
The fury of the descendant of the fallen angel was maddening, and the blows landed into Boat with such venom that he thought every bone in his body would be broken! He steeled himself against the pain but even then, it was unbearable and finally he opened his lips and screamed.
Duke floated around Boat’s body as it was held up against the wooden wall of the cabin, delivering the damaging blows that made blood erupt out of Boat’s nostrils, ears and lips. Finally, a horrible haymaker caused the wooden walls of the cabin to break, spilling Boat’s body outside!
Duke Swallows floated out after him and hovered over his body with his eyes glowing with savage red victory!
“Did you feel that, Boat-boy?” he hissed furiously. “That is only the beginning, you motherfucker! I’m gonna torture you as you’ve never been tortured! You want to rule the Underworld because the Legion chose you? I RULE THE UNDERWORLD!”
His last sentence was a roar that shook the ground and made lightning scissor alarmingly across the sky. He huffed above the broken body of Yaw Boat, all puffed up with superiority.
“You’re a fool, Boat-boy!” he whispered fiercely. “But then again, all you Unblinds are fools! You know that once you’ve accepted the mark of the beast, there’s no salvation for you, right? Now, I’m going to send you to the Hades, and I’m going to make you watch as I kill your son, just like you killed my son! Oh, vengeance is so sweet, motherfucker! And then I’ll lock you up in Hades and make you wait for the souls of your Nicole, and the other Unblinds! It’s gonna be funky in the Hades, you bastard!”
Duke Swallows swooped down and Boat screamed with raw agony as the evil entity blasted into his body! He could feel Duke Swallows inside him, touching every raw nerve end, tearing and causing maximum damage and pain no human being could stand.
Yaw Boat opened his mouth and then roar after roar of sheer unadulterated pain blasted out of his soul and tears of anguish turned his face into a riverbed!
“FEEL PAIN, EARTHLING!” Duke Swallows screamed inside him. “FEEL AGONY, MOTHERFUCKER! YOU WILL REGRET THE DAY YOU CROSSED PATHS WITH DUKE SWALLOWS!”
Boat screamed again and again, his torment hellish and brutal, unbearable and fractious! And then, just as he thought he was going to die definitely, Duke Swallows tore out of his body and dragged Boat’s soul with him!
Yaw Boat saw his body on the ground surrounded by the broken logs of the cabin wall. His body was twisted at horrible angles, evidence of the sheer torture the Duke had taken him through.
Higher and higher they floated, and his body became smaller and less visible, and soon the Duke zoned in toward the silvery lake near the cabin. They zoomed across it at incredible speed. Boat saw the swirling mists above the lake but he could not feel anything, not even the sensation of floating! His soul was merged with the spirit-like version of Duke Swallows, and soon they were into the mists over the lake, then through it, and suddenly he lost the sense of direction and vision!
It was just a dark, hissing form of movement, sometimes interspersed with sudden visions of stars, bland terrain and rocky plains!
And then, quite suddenly, he was dropped and this time he felt indescribable heat as he was met by the sight of blazing destruction! This was another world, a world of terror on a dimension not known to man! The first thing that jarred into him was the sound of sheer agony he heard!
It was the sound of pain and torture from a million voices!
A constant ululation of blasphemous agony of lost souls!
He saw the hazy rising of steam, and he saw that he was hanging on what appeared to be a sort of dense cloud, and below him was a mighty expanse of burning, roiling fire!
The dense cloud was also over his head and he knew they had dropped from up there into this cloudy structure! All around him he could see Death Clouds appearing from up and then diving below the white cloud into the burning inferno below, all of them bearing the souls of humans!
Boat knew without a shred of doubt that these were sinners who had died on Earth and were being brought to this terrible place to sojourn!
They fell constantly, and it dawned on Yaw Boat that this was the futility of life…the rate these Death Clouds fell from the cloudiness was the hard truth that every second someone died on earth!
Such waste, such fickle existence, and yet there were people who were filled with pride, greed and everything vile! For what? What was the reason to indulge when life was just vexatious of breath and flummoxing state of unsteady existence and a vanity that flew past with the rapidness of light with nothing constant?
As he looked around, sick and horrified, Duke Swallows suddenly floated in front of him, and he was in the body of the Spawn who looked to be about twenty-five years old.
He was naked, and looked every inch like Yaw Boat!
“Gaze upon the son you’ll never have, Boat-boy!” came the snickering voice from within the body of the young man. “He dies here, and his evil soul descends to the Hades below, and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it!”
Yaw Boat was now a spectral shape himself, formless like water, and he looked up at the cloudy interface above him through which they had descended.
“Ah!” he said softly. “Hades at last, Dukie. Thought we would never get here. Time to lock it down, I guess.”
And Duke Swallows stared the spirit of Yaw Boat with sudden narrowed eyes.
“What did you say?” he asked in a furious voice, his face filled with wrath.
“I’m where I want to be, Dukie,” Yaw Boat said softly. “With you and my son in Hades. Right where I want to be. I’m gonna fuck you up, Dukie.”
Duke Swallows stared at Yaw Boat with incomprehension.
“You don’t seem to understand what has happened to you,” he hissed furiously as he began to float towards Boat. “You don’t seem to understand where you are!”
“Oh, don’t worry your pretty head about me, Dukie,” Boat said softly. “I know exactly where I am, and I know exactly what has happened to me. So, this is the entrance to Hades, where you have been running to hide whenever you feel like it, and then going up on earth to mess people around when you feel like it. I’m going to lock down Hades so that you can’t get out again, Dukie.”
“YOU IMPUDENT STINKING CUNT!” Duke Swallows screamed. “I WILL TEACH THEE TO KNOW FEAR!”
He flew hard at Yaw Boat who sighed softly, bunched up his right fist, and sank it into Duke’s face with such devastating power that Duke was lifted off his feet to slam down hard on the dense cloud!
“Enough of that shit already,” Yaw Boat whispered as he looked up at the dense clouds above him. “If I be a soldier of the Most True God, this plain will be locked upon this vile entity that lays the rightful ways of the Lord to pulp!”
And then, as swiftly as the eyes could not follow, the dense cloud-like structure above changed into a crackling, shimmering energy-like substance.
Duke Swallows got to his feet, obviously dazed, and then he flew upward fast as if trying to get out, but he came up against that sizzling energy and he screamed with terror and crashed down again on the clouds below!
“WHAT IS THIS?” he screamed so intently that fire emitted from its mouth, nostrils and ears. “YE HATH THE MARK OF THE WHORE! NO SALVATION MUST BE FOR THEE!”
Boat looked at Duke Swallows with calm eyes in his spiritual form.
“Let me tell you something funky, Dukie,” he said softly. “When I clashed with you the second time, when my Lord restored my powers as an Unblind, I glowed differently, and I commanded Angels of Death, not Death Clouds. You see, it dawned on me then that I have been upgraded.”
“Cockbull crap!” Duke Swallows screamed. “There’s no such thing as an Upgrade for an Unblind!”
“I don’t give a fuck,” Boat said softly. “I was upgraded whether you believe it or not. And then everything became clear to me, Dukie! I realized something funky suddenly. It dawned on me that I am a soldier for the Lord of Hosts! My calling is different! I don’t have to be in a church preaching. That is for the pastors. My job, as a soldier, is on the warfront hunting stinking bastards like you down and messing you up so that the pastors can be free to preach and spread the message of salvation!”
“THOU BLASPHEMETH!” Duke Swallows screamed. “YE HATH THE MARK OF THE WHORE OF BABYLON!”
“You’re not listening, Dukie!” Boat said gently. “I didn’t accept the mark of the beast. I just showed you what I wanted you bastards to see! You see, when I knew I was a soldier for the Lord, it also occurred to me that the power I have been given is far greater than any power any evil entity can wield! So, I can do anything through God who strengthens me! It is that simple. I can do ANYTHING! Anything means any bloody fucking thing. For instance, because I’m a soldier of the Lord, I can choose to show you the mark of the beast right now, and I can choose to just not show it!”
And as Duke Swallows watched, horrified to his very core, the blazing, bloody mark of the beast vanished from Yaw Boat’s forehead!
“No!” he whispered with horror. “You never…you didn’t accept the mark of the beast!”
“That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you, Dukie!” Boat said with a chuckle. “I just chose to show you the mark of the beast! And I chose to show you the blazing redness of my eyes! An illusion, Dukie! I slept with Elaine, yes, fornication, but that was just to make my soul dirty enough to get down here to Hades and close it up so that I’ll be left with you here so that you cannot threaten me with the life of anybody I love.”
“Your spawn I have invaded!” Duke Swallows screamed. “You let me out of here right now or I’ll kill your son this instant.”
“What’s wrong with you evil bastards anyway?” Yaw Boat asked softly. “You’re all kinda daft! That’s the same shit the Legion did, arranged one hundred pregnant women on the edge of a cliff to threaten me! He was daft as hell, and it is the same bloody daftness you’re exhibiting now!”
“I WILL TERMINATE THY SEED!” Duke Swallows screamed. “TEMPTETH ME NOT!”
“You should have waited for my spawn to grow!” Boat said softly.
“What?” Duke Swallows asked, and now his handsome face was looking far from confident as his devil eyes blazed at Yaw Boat. “This spawn was conceived in sin! The evil entity of a woman who sold her soul to the whore of Babylon and you!”
“Fuck that!” Yaw Boat said. “He’s just another baby! Every baby is born into sin, but until he grows and knows what is right and what is wrong, and makes a choice, you have no fucking right over him!”
“THEE LIETH!” Duke Swallows screamed shrilly. “It is evil!”
“Nope, that baby is innocent,” Boat countered blandly. “Evil lived in him, the moment he was born, and USED him for evil. That was not the baby. That was an evil entity. So, basically, until he grows up and makes a bloody choice, you’re occupying him illegally! Come out of him, now.”
“NAY, NAY, NAY!!!” Duke screamed horribly. “YE WORKER OF INIQUITY, THIS VESSEL HAST NO REDEMPTION! IT IS MINE….”
“In the name of Jesus Christ I command you out of him, evil, because he is God’s vessel!” Boat said fiercely, and immediately the angelic figure of Duke Swallows crashed out of the body of the boy!
And as the boy began to fall he changed rapidly, growing younger and younger until a weeping baby boy was lying on the cloud surface weeping hysterically with fear and terror.
It was the innocent baby boy Boat had seen in the rain; the helpless blood of his blood terrified of the evil around him. And once again great love filled Yaw Boat’s heart as he reached out his spectral arms.
“To me, my son,” he whispered, and immediately the baby soared into his arms. He stopped crying immediately and giggled happily.
If Yaw Boat had been in his human form, he would have cried at that very moment. Nothing was more powerful than holding his son in this land of evil and seeing the trust and love on the little tot’s face.
“Hang in here, Junior,” Boat said softly and put the baby away from him so that it was hanging in the void, supported by nothing. “Daddy has to fuck up some evil entity now. I’ll be with you son, my boy.”
