Karen’s eyes held a desperate plea as she asked for my help.(A Pact with Sabazios: The Perilous Quest for Love and Liberation) I hesitated, my mind awash with a blend of curiosity and trepidation. What was it that she needed from me? It was essential to clarify the nature of her request, especially considering the supernatural entanglement she found herself in.
The Hidden Realms of Spirits
In the world of spirits, things are seldom what they seem. Such ethereal entities often operate from the shadows of the second and third realms, orchestrating their actions from beyond the physical world. Spirits like Sabazios wield powers that extend through Earth, spanning up to the fourth and fifth realms. Their capabilities are beyond human comprehension, and any attempt to confront them can lead to dire consequences.
A Frightening Adversary
Sabazios was a formidable, malevolent spirit, possessing an anger that sent shivers down my spine. His weapon, a spiritual sword capable of slicing through metal as effortlessly as a knife through butter, held the power to end lives without a trace. A confrontation with him would be perilous, leaving me physically unscathed but spiritually maimed.
Karen’s Desperate Plea
Karen’s gaze remained fixed on me, her eyes probing mine for an assurance that I was struggling to provide. She implored, “Promise me you will do it.” However, I couldn’t pledge without knowing the nature of her request.
“Karen, I am willing to assist you,” I responded, “but I cannot make promises when I am in the dark about the kind of help you seek. I refuse to be swayed by emotions or curiosity into actions I don’t fully comprehend. Tell me your needs, and if they align with my capabilities, I will aid you without hesitation. If not, I will respectfully step away.”(A Pact with Sabazios: The Perilous Quest for Love and Liberation)
Karen sighed heavily and took hold of my hands, her grip trembling with the weight of her revelation. “Sabazios is a possessive spirit,” she confessed. “He made me promise that no man would ever see my nakedness except for him. It happened in a dream when we were still dating. Since then, I’ve held to that promise. I’ve never allowed any man to see me in such a vulnerable state.”
The Unbelievable Challenge
As Karen disclosed her plight, I was left in disbelief. She explained that the only path to freedom from Sabazios was for a man who genuinely loved her to sleep with her without losing his life. It was an incomprehensible pact, one she had adhered to faithfully for years.
The Tragic Truth
My mind raced back to Ayo, a promising young man who had met a tragic end. Karen’s admission sent shockwaves through my senses. “Is that why Ayo…” I began, my voice trailing off, “Karen, tell me it was Sabazios who took his life and not the accident, as we all believed.”
Tears welled up in Karen’s eyes as she confirmed my suspicions. “I thought he loved me, Praises. So, I let him in. Two days later, he died. It was only then I realized that his love wasn’t as genuine as he professed.”
A Heartbreaking Revelation
I couldn’t hide my frustration. “Did you ever reveal your entanglement with Sabazios to Ayo? Did he know what he was getting into?”
Karen’s voice quivered as she confessed, “No, I kept it a secret.”
“You were aware of the risk you exposed him to, and you risked his life without his knowledge,” I reproached, my words heavy with disappointment. “Ayo died in vain, Karen.”
A Desperate Bid for Liberation
Karen defended herself through her tears. “I believed in his love, Praises.”
“But you were selfish,” I argued. “And now, you’re using your feelings for me, revealing your body to seduce me into helping you break the covenant with Sabazios. You’re desperate to move on, without regard for the consequences.”
Karen screamed, tears streaming down her face. “No, Praises, no.”
To Be Continued…
As emotions ran high and the weight of their circumstances pressed down upon them, the future remained uncertain. The consequences of a dangerous pact with Sabazios were far from over. What lies ahead for Karen and Praises, and will they find a way to break free from the malevolent spirit’s grasp? Stay tuned for the next episode.
