Issue 1: Holy Revelations
Hein, Ligeia and Dizzy had followed the mysterious priest through the forest and arrived at a distant church. Once they were inside they went to the back room of the church, where no one was present, and were motioned to sit down and rest on the couch.
Hein looked at Ligeia. "You're really good with your powers, I didn't know you had such good control over them."
Ligeia giggled with her eyes closed. Shrugging it off as nothing she said "Nah, I've been practicing after you guys saved me from being the Morbid Mermaid... and I already have these powers since as long as I can remember."
"And soon we will find out where they come from and where you come from." Hein replied.
Father Trip entered the room again with a plate which contained hot tea and some bread. "Sorry that I can't offer you kids more, I only have bread here, and my drinks are limited to tea and wine." he said.
"It's okay. And seeing we're still underage..." Ligeia said.
Father Trip chuckled monotone, not really emitting any emotion. "Indeed." he face expression didn't change much but there suddenly was more serious atmosphere around him. He walked to the wall behind Hein and Ligeia and grabbed two stones of a plank. Together with the lapis lazuli they collected earlier there were three gemstone on the table now.
"Ligeia. I've looked into these gemstones, and they contain your memories. I always figured there was something strange about them. But when I heard people were crossing between dimensions I figured it had to be one of you guys, and here we are." he sighed. "Unfortunately these aren't all of your memories. There are five more to be collected."
Ligeia looked intensely at the gemstones presented on the table. The lapis lazuli which she retrieved from Slender Pan, an amethyst and a pearl. She wondered what the other two contained, and couldn't wait to retrieve all the complete memory that was planted inside of the lapis lazuli. "H-how... would I be able to regain these memories?"
"That would be a simple task with the help of my powers. However when I looked in to them, I saw they were from different time periods... I think it would be best if you retrieved them all at the same time. Don't you think?" he asked and was ready to put the gemstones away.
"No." Ligeia said.
"I want to get them back as soon as I want. I want to get back what is mine. I am strong and smart, I will be able to place all the memories in the right order. It would be like suddenly remembering things that you haven't thought about for a long time and have trouble placing when it happened." she commented with a determined smile.
"It really isn't a smart idea dear." he placed the gemstones back on the table. "But if you are really eager to get these memories back now, then I won't stop you." he said.
"You really sure about this Ligeia? It could be dangerous..." Hein commented.
"Yes. I'm sure. I want them back now. Go ahead and plant them back inside of me."
Father Trip nodded and made a gesture with his hand and a purplish energy was released from all three gemstones. The energy gathered in his hand and he made a ball of it which hovered in the palm of his hand. The shining orb glowed bright and for Ligeia seemed to alreayd emit her memories. Trip then reached out with his hand and pushed the orb inside of Ligeia's forehead."
Ligeia's eyes widened as her memories returned to here.
"Ligeia, are you okay!" Hein asked shocked.
"I hope she is." Dizzy said, being in his cat form and looking interested to Ligeia.
"Leave her." Father Trip said and lowered the hand of Hein that was reaching towards Ligeia. "She is getting a lot to process now, we should give her some time."
Issue 2: Lovely Memories
We delve into Ligeia's memories...
Two persons were walking hand in hand towards a little wooden cabin in the woods. One of them was a tall woman with long pink wavy hair, wearing a long black dress. She had pinkish eyes and a pale skin and seemed very tired of something, but nonetheless there was a caring smile on her face as she was holding the little girl next to her. Said girl beared a striking resemblance to her mother. She had the same long pink hair and pinkish eyes. Unlike her mother she didn't have a pale skin but was more peachy. She looked happy but confused at the same time. She looked up to her mother.
"Mommy, where are we now?" she said.
The mother looked down on her "This is our new home honey, for the start of our new life together."
"The cabin looks nice... but why couldn't we stay in Eden?"
The mother kneeled down before her and looked her in the eyes. "We couldn't stay there anymore. We, the Lilith, were asked to leave, and Eden won't be there for much longer." she told.
"But why did uncle stay behind?" she asked.
"Uncle has some unfinished business left in Eden, but we cannot help him." she closed her eyes and sighed. The mother stood up again brushing some dust from her black dress. She grabbed the girls hand again. "Ligeia, this is our new life, and our new home. I'm sure you will like it here Ligeia, you will make many friends."
"I hope so mommy... I was about to go to school in Eden? Am I going to school here now?"
"Yes. You will. Now let's come."
A young Ligeia was sitting on the lap of her mother in the cabin. The little Ligeia seemed very tired, and as seen from the outside it was already late. She hugged her mother and smiled. "I love you mama, I love our life."
The mother, still hugging her daughter as she went with her fingers through her pink hair, smiled as well. "Me toosweetie."
They broke up the hug. "But why did the others not come along to enjoy this life?"
"This question again sweetie?" she asked. She shook her head. "You always ask me this."
"I want to know. We left out home and left the other two family trees behind... and when we arrived here we all split into different directions... I don't understand why."
"I don't know sweetie, but as long as we are together. I have a present for you." she said. She reached out to her purse and pulled out a silver necklace with a lapis lazuli as gemstone engraved into the necklace. She turned her daughter around and put it around her neck. Ligeia felt with her hand over the necklace.
"I love it mama!" to which she got a bright smile from her mother.
"Cherish this necklace Ligeia, along with the other gemstones that I gave to you." the mother said and pointed to the other six gemstones.
"I will mommy. I will."
Ligeia was walking down the road with her backpack strapped on her back. She just finished her day on school and walked back hoe by herself for the first time. She stopped at a traffic light and another boy stood next to her. She looked to him, he was pretty cute. He was a young boy about the same age as her. He had light brown hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a green hoodie was blue jeans.
She didn't pay attention to the light and the boy suddenly started walking. He noticed that the girl didn't walk and turned around. "Uhm... the light is green." he said.
"Oh... yeah... I wasn't paying attention." Ligeia answered. "Thank you."
The two crossed the street and looked at each other. It was a weird feeling but they both felt like at least a good friendship towards each other.
"To which school do you go?" the boy asked.
"The one there..." she pointed at the building in the distance which one could easily spot as a school building.
"I go there as well!" he said excited.
"I think I have seen you there." Ligeia said. There was a small pause. "My name is Ligeia."
"My name is Hein." he said.
"Do you have to go to home now?" Hein asked.
"Uhm... my mother told me to go home directly... but you can come play at my place." she suggested.
"Really?! Cool! My parents aren't home so can I call my sister when I'm with you?"
Of course! Let's go!"
Ligeia go many of her memories back again
