Book 1 – Chapter 4 The Contract

I trembled as I heard the voice, it was so powerful that I lost control of my body. I climbed into the carriage in a mechanical way and sat in a daze, the voice which kept quite till then started speaking again as the carriage started moving forward.

‘ So boy, what can you sense about me ‘

Not knowing how to answer the question I remained quiet.

‘ Speak boy, you can never hide from me ‘

‘ I can sense your direction and also your aura which gives a image of black miasma ‘

‘ ho ho, so a weak human such as yourself can sense me to this extent ha ha ‘

‘ ……… Who are you sir? ‘

‘ so the little rabbit can speak of its own free will. What do you think I am ? ‘

‘I am sorry sir I have no idea. Please give this humble being your name sir ‘

My thoughts were very clear no matter who he was, he was definitely not a human, an existence surpassing a mortal. He is most probably an immortal, I do not understand why he reached out to me but I have to be very careful as he can definitely squish me to death with just a thought.

‘ O! You are certainly intelligent for a kid, you need not know my name for now but you can call me lord Void ‘

‘ Yes, lord Void ‘

‘ So kid I will ask you a question, are you interested in becoming strong? ‘

I was startled with his question but still answered ‘ yes, lord Void ‘

‘ I see, I see, so you want to be strong but tell me how strong do you wish to become and what do you want to do after you become strong ‘

I thought for some time and answered that ‘ I wish to become strong enough to protect my family and give them whatever they want, after becoming strong enough to achieve that I wish to become the strongest ‘

‘ ha ha, truly an answer of a child still I am  satisfied with it so I will offer you a deal boy, a deal which will help you to become strong but it only helps you, it will not make you strong boy ‘

Confused I ask ‘ what deal sir ‘

‘ A contract between me and you, I will grant you with my attribute but you have to fulfill a wish of mine in the future ‘

‘ What wish sir? ‘

‘ That I cannot say yet, but I will tell you after you become strong enough ‘

‘ Then will the contract end upon the completion of your wish and will I lose your attribute sir ‘

‘ Yes and no, you will lose my attribute but your own attribute will be developed so it is of no problem ‘

‘ I see, then I will accept this contract on one condition sir ‘

‘ Speak what is your condition ? ‘

‘ Even after the completion of contract you will be my ally, and you will absolutely never harm me ‘

‘ Wonderful boy, are you really a kid. You amaze me, but yes I will accept your condition. So this is the  contract ‘

As he said this  I suddenly see a cream coloured paper with unknown language on it, but I can still somehow understand the contents of paper, it was exactly what lord Void has said.

‘ So put a drop of your blood on the paper boy ‘

I put a drop of my blood on the paper and was followed by a dark drop on other side sealing the contract . I could sense  a mysterious force binding me to the existence of lord Void.

‘ With this the contract is completed boy ha ha. So I will ask a question now boy, what is your name ? ‘

‘ Riddick sir ‘

‘ I see call me Void, Riddick ‘

‘ Yes, Void ‘

VOID POV:

I was deep in my slumber when I noticed some one’s spiritual power reaching me. I was instantly alert but the spiritual power was so weak that I could not even compare it to a fly, so I simply ignored it.

After a good while I observed that this spiritual did not belong to someone searching my abode but belonged to a weak existence.

Out of boredom I decided to observe this existence which turned out to be a little boy, but I was completely shocked that he could sense me as I reached out for him.

So I tried to speak with him and I succeeded, how did this kid hear me I tried to contact several times with creatures of many levels but never succeeded so how did this kid hear me?

Talking with the kid I realised that he was much intelligent than an average child but maybe I am wrong how can I know the intelligence levels of human children.

Thinking of all the events that happened after the child reached out to me I decided to make a gamble, I will make a contract with the child as he is the only chance I have to escape from this prison plane.

The contract was successfully established and my connection with the child was stabilised. Though I cannot do much from this I can at least have a way to entertain myself. Now Riddick, grow strong I will be waiting for you.

I was smiling from ear to ear as I began to think of what I will do after I break free from this goddamn prison, even if Riddick didn’t put the condition I would have never harmed the boy I am going to nurture. Ha ha this world will soon see me as I rise once again to shake the heavens.

MY POV:

I was completely nervous when I was taking with Void, I had my fears of accepting the contract with a being of such power but I could not muster up any  more courage to ask a few questions except for the one condition which is crucial for my survival.

I was even prepared for death when I dared to say the condition but contrary to my expectations Void accepted it easily. This changed my impressions of Void as now he did not look like a unreasonable figure.

He said that I would receive help but not power if I accepted the contract so I accepted it as i will still receive help. After the contract was completed I felt a strange surge of energy connecting to my chest from unknown source.

After carefully analysing the situation I came to the conclusion. The energy I felt is dark in nature completely enveloping and mixing together with the little mage force of fire and lightning I had.

So the attribute I gained was dark attribute which was rare in this world because attributes themselves were rare whether it was light or dark attribute. Feeling elated I thanked Void.

‘ Thank you Void for giving me dark attribute ‘

‘ Dark attribute what a joke don’t compare mine with that shit ‘

‘ But it is dark in colour ‘

‘ Listen kid never make a mistake, dark attribute is dark grey in colour while mine is a majestic pitch black ‘

‘ Then what is it ‘

‘ It is named Void attribute ‘

‘ Oh! Is it a variation of dark attribute that you possess ‘ this was the only thing I could think of as this world had only light and dark attributes.

‘ ha ha, no kid this is the one and only third attribute in existence which is possessed by only two members in the entire multi universes me and now you ‘

‘ What did you say? ‘

  4. Sorry if i’m getting something wrong, but aren’t there more than just 2 (or 3) attributes in the world? Riddick himself has fire and lightning, but are there more variations?
