Augusta


"In hoc signo vinces"

Not a sound was made upon her entry. Not a head lifted from their prayers to see whom had entered, as it was meant to be. Augusta scanned the church, expecting more than what presented itself. A hearty disappointment, but one that was at this point to be expected in a piss town like this. Her time in Orchidia, an effort to as much scope out any points of interest, areas in which would enable her eventual conquest of the city to go unapposed, had been a meddling affair, to say the least. With any advantage she may have gathered for herself, at least twice as many obstacles presented themselves. Infuriating, to say the least. Too, if this were any indication of what she had to expect throughout the remainder of Fiore, she was not looking forward to any of this.

Walking past the pews, Augusta looked upon those who held down their heads, examining them. Judging them. Peasants, drunkards, individuals who serve as little more than kindling for the inevitable flame that was to fall upon this city. Upon this country. Before the sermon there knelt a woman, dressed in rags no different than what Augusta had come to view from the workers who slaved away in the fields, racing against the inevitable winter that was to come. The woman prayed aloud, her words quiet enough such to not interrupt the others, but loud enough that Augusta could hear each word that echoed from her mouth, each sin she sought salvation towards.

It made Augusta's blood boil how bastardized the Church had allowed things to become. Their inaction had allowed for this false sense of redemption to exist. This foolhardy idea that a simple repent would abolish an individual of their sins. Augusta knew all too well that this were not how one were redeemed; she had witnessed countless who had cried out their prayers before her, begging for mercy, for some sort of god to save them. They had become so blinded by their false impression of the faith that they had failed to recognize that whatever they believed as a god were standing before them? Augusta had come to offer them salvation; salvation from a miserable existence. 

That was their redemption. Redemption by fire.

The woman who knelt before her got up from her prayer, turning her head to see Augusta, the face of disgust and disdain upon her. Cowering, the woman hastily left from the church as quickly as able, fearful of what might have angered Augusta so much. Turning her head only slightly, she watched as the woman fled, the burning desire to take out the instrument that she so securely possessed and treasured and show this woman the futility of her prayers seething through her.

But, this woman's time would come eventually. There were no need for Levi to waste such a demonstration on such a small matter. Especially not on someone as insignificant as her.

Adelaide Sokolov
Clad in her new armour, making her feet thud heavy on the ground as she wore it. Heavy on her shoulders, heavy as a burden that she was already carrying and yet the armour felt light compared to what her shoulders were carrying. Nothing visible, nothing anyone knew. It was nothing compared with just a sword on her hip and a golden armour on her skin. It was more comparable in the mental weight of holding a child with her left hand and carrying another with her right. The nanny had called in sick. The knight had not been able to contact her higher-ups before she would be able to go back home. She had no solution and as they did not offer a solution, she had to do something. She ushered Tanya to walk on while cradling Anton against her now metal skin.

Like that she stepped into the church, watching as a woman ran away without any proper idea to what. She scanned the crowd in there, having taken a step in front of Tanya in case something happened. All she saw was a colleague and other people who came for prayer. She did not believe in prayer, it did not bring anything but she also did not let them go because of that. She found a bench and put the twin on there and spoke softly yet sternly that they should sit there and think about what they wanted for dinner. That would keep them going, she also told them that if she heard a sound, they would not get dinner or they would get something nasty. It was only to keep them occupied while she would bring in the news and finish her duty for today.

She had seen Augusta before, back when she had no idea that they both were part of the Holy Knights when it still ought to be a secret back then and she only, days later had told her best friend Alisa. [color=#ff9900]"Everything alright?"[color] She asked quickly, in a hushed whisper that you could expect in a church. She did not have a lot of time, but she could at least ask if the other blonde was okay. She actually expected Augusta to be fine, considering how she worked and all, for as far as Alice knew.

She had not seen Augusta a lot and she wondered if the other knight still remembered her, nothing actually changed except that she dyed her hair. Still, the same name, still the same function, face structure and so on, just no longer a ginger.

Augusta


"In hoc signo vinces"

Had it not been for her entering into the church just as the street woman departed, perhaps Augusta would not have seen her. It were hardly as though afterwards she would have paid attention. Few who would have come into a place such as this would have merited such a reaction, and from what she could tell, none of those who had already been present here held that honor. It was in part a reason why Augusta were a bit more pleased to see the arrival of whom had entered, a woman within the Holy Knights, her name one of the few which Augusta had come to remember; since her return to Fiore, the amount of time trying to learn the names and skills of those who were scattered amongst Fiore, let alone other relevant information towards each and putting them to a face that she had never seen, only so much information stood to be processed.

This woman though, Augusta knew there stood some potential within her. They had met once before, albeit a very brief, uneventful encounter. Circumstances though had radically changed since then, not only with respects to both of them, but also within the Holy Knights as a whole. Her reputation within the organization was well-regarded, though her tactics were not quite to the standard that Augusta would have sought in a Holy Knight, she nevertheless stood to be a valuable ally. Potentially, at least. There were still many variables that went within that equation, of which Augusta needed to know before making her move.

When the woman approached her, Augusta could not help but be a bit satisfied. This was a confrontation that had to have happened, and it were better now that they did, people there or otherwise. Surveying those in the pews once again, no new faces save for a pair of children that had accompanied the woman, Augusta reasoned that it whatever risk they may have posed, whomever might have overheard could be easily taken care of. Especially with the assistance of Adelaide.

"Oh, sure, everything's perfect. Just another lost soul, looking for some sort of savior to forgive them, as if any of them deserve something like that," Augusta did not hide the contempt in her voice. There were no reason to keep appearances among those of the same agenda. "You likely know all to well, having been stuck within this forsaken land I imagine. One of these days you will have to explain to me why you haven't led these pigs to the slaughter they so richly deserve."

Augusta shrugged, just as an idea popped within her head. "Or come to think about it, why don't we find out right now." Reaching for something, she pulled out a small staff, cast in solid gold, an intricate ornament planted upon the head of it. "You like it? A little toy I had found while I was taking care of some business beyond the border. You should have been there. We could have used someone of your talent. Heh, but it wasn't as though they put up much of a fight anyways." Pointing it towards the woman, Augusta held an evil smile upon her face, "So, let's see what's happened while I've been occupied."

The staff illuminated faintly for a moment as it read through the memories of the woman, Augusta getting a brief glimpse into what had been happening with this woman, why things had been allowed to decay as much as they have. The reasons for the Church's pitiful state within this country, and why this woman had not done anything to try to and fix it; it was all being revealed to Augusta as the other woman simply watched on.

It only took a moment for Augusta to see just what had happened, and immediately her smile - as evil as it seemed - faded away into that of a disappointing look. An image of this woman, a man before her, and two babies, looking as though they were only a few months old, remained imprinted within Augusta's mind. This woman had put herself before the Church, sacrificing her obligations and mission for the sake of a family. A family that as she was able to see, had become fractured; a tragic ending that were only appropriate for a traitor.


"What a shame. Here I had thought that you might have been of value. And how much I was looking forward to our eventual reunion. Disappointing to see you put your own vanity before that of the Church." She turned her head towards that of the two children still seated in one of the pews towards the far end of the Church, "Were they worth it? Did you feel a sense of pride when you gave birth to them, two daily reminders of your betrayal to us? To what we're meant to do? Is that why you brought them here? To taunt me?"

Augusta at this point was fuming, irate at this woman, for how callously she had come here to confront Augusta. And to bring those two children along, reminders of the potential value Adelaide stood to Augusta, to the Church, only to have been befouled and wasted. What good was she to Augusta at this point? Nothing, so long as those children existed.

"You're no better than any of these. And those two," she pointed at Adelaide's children, "What good do they bring to us? You betrayed us. You compromised all of the glory that is to come for what, to be abandoned? Tell me, was it worth it? Traitor."

The look of disgust had not been hidden, it had been plain on her face, reading as an open book and yet Adelaide believed that Augusta was not a type to just show what she thought unless she had a plan or something else to figure it out. She did not know why this was what she thought, maybe only because most knights seemed to do that. She only made the mistake of not knowing that Augusta was one of the radicals that she only heard about. She stared at the blonde with a surprise. She did not say anything, just frowned and stared at Augusta, she had no idea what she should answer without making a mistake. "There are more important things to do than wonder about these souls, I do not let my time be wasted by that." Maybe it was a bit of both now, a bit radical and a bit not? She had no idea, she did not see these people as pigs for slaughter, as lost souls, because if she did that, she would be one as well. She did not focus on the Illumin or what the Divine had to say unless it was about her job itself but she had better things to do.

She narrowed her eyes only more, heaving her head and showing her arrogance because she did not plan for this lady to just simply push her aside as if she was a ridicule being. "What is it?" Because it was the bait the blonde wanted, to show off something she had found abroad. It felt like she got a splitting headache within a second before it disappeared again and she felt anger wash over her but more because she had no idea where this taunting was going. When she wanted to open her mouth, Augusta was quicker. She gripped her sword out of habit when Augusta turned to look at her children, no one was allowed close to them unless she knew the person and could trust that person. That was not many and this is why she already hated the normal nannies.

She couldn't help but smile, "I called it God's will to give me a twin. For as far as I have known through my whole pregnancy was that I would get one child. By the illumin it were two, so don't call me a traitor when you don't know the road that he planned for me and my babies." She let go of her sword but shook her head and turned away from Augusta, "For your information, the world doesn't turn around you, you could ask the Divine about that. I did not bring them here to taunt you. I bring them here so I can continue to do my job while the church watches over them." Which was a lie, but she had to play the radical role now and she wasn't very good at it but also not very bad.

"In hoc signo vinces"

Augusta smirked at the woman. Almost on instinct, the woman drew her hand towards her sheathed weapon, enough of proof Augusta needed to see that this woman had betrayed everything she stood for, what she had sworn to carry out when she joined the Holy Knights. Whatever value that Augusta might have had with Adelaide before, there was none of that now. She was compromised. Broken. Useless.

Neither she nor her children deserved to live anymore.

"God's will!? You think it was God's will to have allowed yourself to be defiled!? To turn your back on your destiny!? They should not be here!" At this point, Augusta found herself irate, yelling with not a single care for anyone in the church who might have heard, whether it be Adelaide, her children, or the other people who had lifted their heads out of shock, some no doubt terrified over what was going on, stunned that this turn of events was occurring, in a church no less!

Suddenly then, a wicked thought came into her head. Her furious disposition changed suddenly, from that of fury to that of one of a more sinister idea. "No... No, maybe you're right. Yes actually you are right. This was his plan all along..." She began to laugh slightly, it not taking away from the dark tone in which seemed to overshadow everything happening between her and Adelaide. "You were meant to come to me. To show me how far you've fallen. God has brought you forth to me for you to be redeemed. While so many have been brought before me to only see their salvations in the gallows or upon the pyre, this... This is different." She held the rod in her hand still, in full view of Adelaide, with her hand still upon the hilt of her blade. "This toy of mine, it can do far more than just into your mind. Much more than that. Perhaps, you bring out that blade of yours, perhaps you bring it to your childrens' throats. It can happen, just like that," Augusta snapped the fingers of her free hand to illustrate just how easy it would be.

"But no, that would be too easy. Your kids were not meant to die here. Not today. But they will." She looked right into the eyes of Adelaide, seemingly able to see the rage in her eyes. "Don't worry dear, it won't by my hand. I've slaughtered hundreds of children in the name of God, but I wouldn't do that to a fellow Holy Knight."

Beginning to walk away, Augusta put the wand away again, having no further need today for its usage. Taking some steps towards the exit of the church, she turned her head one last time towards the woman, "But your husband, I'm sure it wouldn't take much convincing. I likely wouldn't even need this toy of mine. He'd probably welcome the chance to put down the little bastards. Maybe they're why he left you to begin with..."

The yelling, the irritation was clearly visible on her face and Alice could only look at Augusta, "I did not know you speak to the Illumin, let me know when you are the new Divine, you have no idea what God's will in Augusta. You are lost, you see bad things everywhere, it doesn't have to be there." She did not want to be looked down upon by someone who did not reach things as far as she did and also said she was set back. Ha, she was by far the highest ranked knight in this church between the two of them, but it was probably not the best time to say so. People stood up and were scared of Augusta, what a function to be a knight and she wasn't sure what she should say. She just wanted them to be out of the way in case something happened, that wand was dangerous and at this point, she had no idea what to do herself. Her golden eyes turned to her children who were looking at her.

She took a step back but now kept her eyes on Augusta as she said that Alice was right. What? Right with what? What was the plan? She had no idea. She grabbed her sword again now that she threatened the life of her children and she wanted to use the wand so Alice would do it herself, how... why did they have such weapons, why did the higher-ups let a radicle like her hold on to such a thing and threaten her. Where the heck was Midas... How ridiculous... she... no this was not logical, this made no sense. Not do that to a fellow Holy Knight, how much respect did she have.

Your husband.

Your husband.

Left you.

Left you.

She let out a scream and had no idea what happened, there was only sight of white light. Her eyes blinked, her rage extremely high and anger that only left over her. "HE DID NOT LEAVE ME. YOU... YOU AND AUGUSTO." She had no idea what happened until she heard Tanya cry out loud something that sounded like mommy and the light went lower and the church came back in view and her sword, half blocked because there was Augusta, Natheal's sword half through her stomach, in a diagonal way up. What... what had she done?

Augusta


"In hoc signo vinces"

For so long, Augusta had carried herself as though she were untouchable. The voice within her head, the voice that she had so long perceived to be God, it had led her through conquests that one would only imagine being able to carry out, let alone survive. Thousands lay dead at her feet, cities were razed, utter destruction had carried her. There had never been a reason to believe differently that things stood to change. The voice of God had protected her from this point. It had guided her, guided those who followed.

But in that instant. It was silent.

She didn't register at first what had happened. She felt the sting, but it did not register. Augusta had heard the woman yell first, followed immediately by that of the piercing pain that at first did nothing but stop her in her tracks. Looking down, she saw it, though her eyes could not believe it. A sword, rather the sword that Adelaide had so frequently held at the hilt before Augusta, shoved right through her chest, as if she had stabbed her right through the back. Blood poured from the wound as she fell to her knees, in as much disbelief as she felt the life beginning to fade out of her.

Turning her head as much as she was able, the feeling of such a motion appearing to be fading from her as each second waned, she could see the woman, the rage upon her face. The anger she held towards Augusta, and by extension, the one whom she had yelled about. Augustos. A name that Augusta had heard once or twice, but much like those whom she had heard save for Adelaide, did not care much about. Their name did not matter though. In the end, little more did.

Augusta knew she was done. She never anticipated it to be this way. To have happened so early. So much that she still had to do, countries that yet to fall to her forces. Despair reigned through her at never seeing the end of days that she had for so long wished to achieve.

Her eyes glinted at the woman, the faintest of a smile upon her face, "You'll... end up just... just like me..." Her eyes shut as whatever leverage or strength she had left in her body faded away, her body slamming to the ground with a thud, the sword that had been pierced through her being forcibly ejected by the force, falling to the ground beside Augusta.

It was a tragedy. For so much hope and promise that Augusta sought to carry out only to be erased away in such a poor manner. With her last moments of her life, Augusta wondered what could have been, how much worse of a world she will leave behind, and just what will Adelaide carry out in her wake.

The sword clattered out of her hand and she stared at Augusta. What had she done? She looked at her hands, slight drops of blood on it that had dropped through the sword on her hands. End up like Augusta? That wasn't possible, well yes... no. She won be so radical and not so careless as to offend people with a weapon in their hands. Yet there was no knowledge about what Illumin had in mind for her future, she did not believe too much but she had to do something and also get rid of this problem. Shit.

A burden she already seemed to have but now there was one in the hall of the church and Tanya crying so loudly. Anton had missed the whole theatre play as he had moved his little chubby hands in front of his eyes. She murdered, cold-blooded, in rage... murdered a fellow Holy Knight. She felt a twist in her stomach and lowered herself to hunch down and swallow the bile in her mouth. No time to puke, actions needed to be taken care off right now. She was a murderer... What if she went to whatever form of prison the Holy Knights wanted to work on, she could not go to prison. What would happen to the kids? What happened to Kon? The words Augusta meant before were still in her mind. She knew of his past but that did not mean that it was still the same, she had seen his tears yet... this was not her husband.


Exit.
