king Part 1 - Breakfast
*Note: This bridges Open Your Eyes story with The New Calling

Following the beautiful stranger down the stairs, several times do my thoughts drift to doing that whole push thing to her now so she can fall down the stairs, but I wouldn't get my answers. I put the thought out of my head and when we reach the bottom of the stairs, she tells me that it wouldn't have worked anyway and I tell her to stay the hell out of my head. There is quite a bit of hostility still residing inside of me. We sit down at the table and she asks me if I would like something to drink. I look at her and she looks over at the kitchen and three pitchers of juice float over to the table and my eyes widen. I look at her and realize that she has strange abilities like mine. She smiles and tells me that I may very well come to find my powers to be gifts. "I did not have a choice in the matter, so how can I find them to be gifts?" Her hands fold and she tells me that obviously my Onugi and I have not had ample time to speak with one another about my powers. "My what?" She gestures towards us and a book floats over in front of me and hovers in position for a moment. Suddenly, it opens and starts flipping through pages until it stops on one and of course the title of the page is Onugi. I grab the book and start reading. As I'm going thru the entry, I find disturbing parallels with my own life. One particular memory troubles me the most...

I couldn't have been any more than maybe 9 years old at the time and I had been having headaches during this trip out of Saicity where I accompanied my father on business when he still worked for his former employer. At this point, I still felt my father's love and adoration for me. One of his clients had acquired a collection of ancient trinkets and needed to liquidate them quickly for an important business venture. My father tells him that he can handle the transaction. The client takes us down to the vault so that we could see them in order to help my father sell them faster. Once we're down in the vault, I'm looking around at the different things and come across a really shiny necklace adorned with what to me looks like silver, gold, and some milky and black really shiny gems. Since no one is watching me, I pull the box down to sit down and look at it closer. A guard turns around as I sit down and before he can stop me, I touch the necklace. It starts glowing and the guard is simply awestruck at the sight. From the look on his face, something was wrong with me but I don't know what it could be. The shiny necklace is gone and I have a really long necklace around my neck that is still somewhat radiant, but far different from what I had touched. An earthquake hits and things start shaking. The guard moves for the door, but forgets about me. One of the shelves tips over sending several heavy objects down towards me. Since I had sat down cross-legged style, I wouldn't be able to move away fast enough. I saw this bright light and the chests and loose valuables all land softly around me. I look at the shelf and it leans back up. The objects "jump" back onto the top of the shelf. Some shiny egg looking thing falls and it'll definitely crack and kill the little bird inside, so I squeal and it stops before it hits the ground. I keep running and grab it. I smile and the shaking stops as I'm rubbing the egg. The client walks over and notices that I saved the egg and apparently, it's very expensive because he's very happy that I saved it and talking about its value. To me, he just has a really special bird inside. I wasn't sure how the chest, ceremonial axe, and the really big glassy ball all missed me or how they jumped back up onto the shelf nor how I stopped the egg from falling. I attributed it to my imagination as I got older because incidents like that had not occurred again. So apparently that is the day that all of this started... the day that I stopped being normal...

I keep reading so that I could understand this thing more. I remember seeing a separate entity outside of my body that saved me from the demons trying to eat me in the apartment. If this thing was inside of me for the last 10 years, then how did it appear outside of me as well. The first thing I read is that Onugi meld for life. I finish the chapter and look up at her. "It doesn't explain what happened to me."

Stranger: "You should really talk to your Onugi about that. What are you confused about?"

"The ceremony requires an artifact. I already had one. It's how I first got this necklace and pendant. I had an onugi already, but while I was sleeping, I felt things and saw things from outside of my body. I melded with a new spirit. How is that possible?"

S: "The Goddess truly favors you. That would explain why you slept for nearly two days. You only have one Onugi, Psyre, but it merged with another. The combined form is your Onugi. So it is the offspring you can say of the merger. You are meant to be the Light within the Darkness. Do you think you are able to put the book back... without destroying or dropping it?"

I stare at the book and lift it into the air quickly at first, but struggle to have it hover in the air. It slowly lowers and I tilt my head with it to turn it to float vertically. I look over at her and find that she's not there. She is behind me and she's caressing my neck and blowing seductively in my ear. My right hand trembles as I struggle to keep from dropping the book. It keeps getting lower and lower as I struggle to keep my thoughts focused. I hear a whisper in my other ear... "I'm enjoying this sensation, so put the book up and enjoy it completely." I utilize the developing strength of my mind to control my body and trick it into believing that it feels no arousal from her actions. I am able to move the book and it slides right into place. I sigh and exhale rapidly and heavily as that had been quite a strain on me.

She congratulates me on doing a good job. "You want to know who we are, yes? We are spiritual half-breeds. We are part spirit, but we are flesh and blood humans as well. The Onugi resides within us and shares with us its thoughts and essences while expanding our minds and their capabilities. In exchange, we provide them with a physical form to share our experiences and sensations. Everyone in this house, well except for two of us is a hybrid. There are two "purebloods". One is a Kamikonjou who is almost always in Kamihume form. She is the Avatar of the Goddess' High Commander, so we trust her completely. The other is one of the few males here in this coven. He is a Hitorinji. They keep us grounded and provide biased opinions because those are often necessary when dealing the indecisiveness of being both spirit and huume. We are a coven here. We worship the Goddess and she blesses us with protection and the ability to support ourselves. Recently the message from the Avatar has been one of action. We were told to help accelerate your resonance. So that's what we did. It is soon to be your destiny to take part in the battle between the forces of Koutaku-Shi, the realm of the Kamikonjou, and the forces of Onitoshi, the realm of the Onikonjou. This is quite a lot to process all at once. You are needed."

I look at her and start laughing. "You must be insane. That's the only way to explain it. I'm leaving and returning home and if I see you again, I will have a restraining order placed on you. You need to seek some serious mental help. Goddess... Avatar... where are my things?" She tries to stop me and another young woman walks in and hands me my things and the stranger objects and the newcomer tells me that they do not hold people against their will. She tells me that if I change my mind, she would be glad to explain things in a much better way instead of silly games and riddles. I nod to her and she hands me a card. I get changed and leave out of the room away from the stranger that had done all of this to me. I had gone ten years without any of this and my life was great. One night with her and everything is turned upside down... and she's not even pregnant!!

In the separate room, I am brought food while I'm getting my things ready to leave and I stand at the far side of the room and look at the food. The lids are still on the food, but I can smell it and I am starving right now. I lift the lid from across the room and tilt the trays to see what is inside of them and it is at this moment that I realize that I can see clearly down the table. There's no way that I should be able to see that far and this well. I ignore it and make myself a plate from over here. This part of my ability isn't that bad I guess. I'll never have to worry about losing the remote again. I can manipulate it from wherever I'm at. That will be very useful when I'm switching between the business networks. Sitting down to eat, I am left in peace to enjoy this meal... at least for a while. Another one of the females in this house come to talk to me about helping them in the war and I let out a primal sound ignites all of the candles in the room causing the younger female to flee from the room quickly and I storm out of the house. I just need to get back to my life where I don't have to listen to all this demon and spirit and fighting crap! I don't want any part of any of that.

Walking around outside the house, I realize that perhaps this is not going to work. I have no idea where I am and I'm annoyed and frustrated. Worse yet is that I don't have my damn car. At this point, I realize that I will have to find my way back. Thankfully, I can see the sun, so I can at least gauge which direction I'm headed...

Opening my phone as if I don't already know what I'm going to find out... I have no service at all out here. Great, just frickin great! I keep walking towards the sun in the hopes that I will hit East City or Northern Heights... actually anything other than this damn forest! Suddenly, I feel a tugging in my chest... I wonder what that is...

After the encounter with the demons at that portal, I realize that what the beautiful stranger said was not a joke or insanity. I was naive and ignorant to the way things truly were and this would be something that I would have to overcome. The fact that I could not properly control these gifts' worries me. I need to actually train them. Retracing my steps, I voluntarily choose to return to the house in the woods. When I arrive, I see one of them waiting on the porch looking into a ball of... energy. The ball evaporates and she looks up at me. "I'm glad you came back. I'll make you something to eat and grab you a bottle of our special wine! This is a time to celebrate!" I stop her. "Wait. How am I able to move things without touching them and how can I get better at it?" She smiles and tells me that she has the gift of Vision, but not of Power. "I can see into the near future or see events taking place around the world. I'm trying to learn how to teleport into a location that I'm viewing, but I haven't quite got it yet. Carmina will be able to help you with your gifts though." At the sound of the name, I cast a quizzical gaze at her and she leads me inside. She leads me down some stairs where things are floating back and forth past us like an assembly line. We come to three doors, the middle door is open with the items floating back and forth. It looks like someone is doing an inventory of sorts. We walk thru the door on the right and it closes right behind us. She stops me from walking forward and tells me that she can't cross this room without an escort, so I'll have to wait for one. "I'll get started on the food though. When you finish training, I'll finish showing you around." I smile at her kindness, but when she gets to the door, I think to stop her, but she walks through the door. I blink and find that I'm just a little confused about that one, but I decide not to let it bother me much. A fiery orb appears in front of me to serve as a torch to illuminate the area and that's when I realize why she stopped me... there's no damn floor!!! What the hell?! Looking around, more orbs are created to spread around the area and I notice that there is a giant hole in the ground in their basement. Looking around, I first think to simply leave, but then I stop at the door and look around. I can see the other side, but how do I get over there?

I kneel down to think. I peer over the edge and decide to truly test my powers or... die. I step off the edge and the orbs illuminate everything around me, so that I can try to find something to use and as I keep falling which it's not a long distance, but considering that I'll probably still die or be paralyzed from the impact, I'm quite concerned about my health. Wood! Boards! I extend my hands towards them and they rise up to me and stabilize too damn close to the ground. My heart is racing and my adrenaline is pumping rapidly! The boards supporting my weight start rising, but I notice that I'm not quite moving straight. I focus to straighten everything out, so I'm able to correct it easier which lets me know that I'm getting better at controlling my powers. When I arrive on the other side of the "cavern" I step off leaving the boards on this side ledge. I figure that chancing my life once is more than enough. I was happy though. I had learned to control my abilities a bit better. Still, I am not satisfied with just that level of control over this. I still wish to know how exactly it works and how to move things as easily as I've seen the beautiful stranger move things. Almost there...
