Both guards drop, defeated. You level a hateful look at Ignix. “You’ve lost your mind,” she says. “Your own faults, your own decisions brought you here. He got into your head and made you think this is a solution to all of your failures. You played right into his hand; he made you feel special, but you’re just one of the many he’s corrupted; a pawn”. You hang your head, the words cutting deep. “The Gate was built with stone from both worlds. It needs someone like you, someone capable… but corrupted. Someone to break the ritual. We came to replace the seals blocking the Chained One’s influence on our world. It cannot be allowed to cross again.” You raise your head.
