The Last Virgin of Pele Island
Brother was baffled at what his dad would do to the virgins, but he knew he always wanted one. With an outstretched palm he caught the young girl. Suddenly, she burst into flames. Withering away in his outstretched hands, the Brother panicked. He could not have this girl smolder away before him. He just got his new play thing. With a gesture the girl's body reformed and her spirit began to return to her. Opening her mouth, he spat a little of his essence within her. After a few violent convulsions, the girl's body changed. In his hand, was now a beautiful woman made of flame. As she fell in his palm, her body splashed like a pool of lava and then reformed into a young woman again…unconscious. Brother had never been this close to the mortals before. He was beginning to like this new plaything…very much.
Eventually her captor did arrive. Pouring through cracks in the mountain like some volcanic emission, Brother surrounded the girl. He rose to a form she could better comprehend: the form of a young man. Kneeling down he spoke to the young girl. “Hello.” He whispered. The girl let out yet another scream. Quickly, Brother covered her mouth again. “Look, I can let you stay here, but you must be quiet. If they find out about you, then we're both finished. Mother will kill you. Sister will tell and I have no idea what Father will do, but it wouldn't be pretty.” The girl huffed and folded her arms in contempt. He lowered his grip from her mouth.
“Now, can you speak with some sense? I'm sure few of you mortals are capable of that.”
The girl frowned and began to converse. “Let me go.” She said in disapproval.
“I can't do that.”
“But you must. I don't belong here. There has been some big mistake.” She pleaded.
“What mistake? You are a virgin sacrifice. You were done for. Your mortal shell is no more. You now belong to me…I guess.”
“What do you mean, you guess? You're the volcano god. Aren't you going to eat me now?
Brother tried to hold in his laughter. “Why would I eat you? I'm a god. The only sustenance I need is the prayers of the people. Besides, you are quite small. If I were to eat one of your kinds, I'd go for that fat chieftain.”
The girl struggled not to laugh, but failed. “Ah, see…there is a smile. Look, it's not too bad down here. I can easily let your flame die out if you'd like, but you cannot return to your home.” The girl looked down at her body. She sighed. “No, I cannot return like this. Anyway, those assholes sacrificed me. Screw them. Show me around the place.” The boy smiled cheerfully. This was his first friend and he didn't want to mess it up. “Hey consider yourself lucky. You could've been found by my Father. One day I'll find out what he does to all those virgins he gets.” Both the girl and Brother's face went askew as they thought about it. Taking her in his hand, he showed her the secrets of the volcano and explained to her the ways of fire.
The annihilation of the Pele populous eventually led to the waning of the power of the gods. And with that decline came less family feuding. How could they feud? The power of the gods is unequivocally connected to the worship of their followers. So with no followers there was no power. The gods knew it was finally their twilight and as any self absorbed deity would do--they sulked. That was when it happened. As they became morose in self pity, something was happening. In the skies, a group of heavenly disembodied spirits whisked away from their preoccupied captor. It had been forever since the virgins had been sacrificed to the volcano god and stolen by the Sky Father. There bodies were also transformed like the fire virgin; however they took the form of the winds. With their newfound freedom, they soared freely about the island laughing and crying in joy. They spat upon the ground of the long forgotten island that had damned them. Freedom was theirs and nothing would stop the revelry to come. Until…
…Suddenly, a thunderous rumble occurred in the skies. “Come to me my beauties. Come and comfort your daddy!” The Sky Father ordered. The free spirits dared not return. Instead they fled into the nearest escape. The volcanic mouth swallowed them whole. Within, they flew deep into its darkest recesses. They continued lower and lower until the voice of the Sky Father all but faded. As weak as he was, he didn't attempt to follow them. He just continued to cry out like some poor whelp. The girls were safe until they came upon a cavern opening. There they saw the great volcano god fallen. His body little more than a husk. Next to him was a girl…our girl. She wept for him.
“What are you doing? Get away from him. You…you are one of us. She is like us, sisters. Why does she cry for this filth? Why would she cry for anyone? You are empowered girl. Be free. Join us. Leave here before this place sinks into the Earth forever. Come girl. Don't be foolish.” The girls goaded and taunted her. However, she did not stir. She had become attached to her fallen abductor. This verbal attack continued for a while until finally a huge rumble began. By means of the last remains of his power, Sky Father shook the volcano to pieces. Hovering with a maddened look in his eyes, his only concern was the return of his harem. Upon seeing this frightful sight, the wind filled virgins swept up our girl and blew her out of the caves. She did not resist; her heart was too broken to fight back.
The escape was short lived however, as the Sky Father burst from the remains of the volcano. With a motion, he began to seep away his winds that carried the girls aloft. In a last ditch effort the girls combined their might to push their sister far away from the Island.
Consequently, this desperate endeavor leads us to the back to the beginning. Again, the young girl had been living in that hole for ages. The primitive world she once inhabited was now full of thriving metropolises, industries and modern technology. Upon landing (In the middle of an Industrial sector back alley, mind you), the young girl was frightened and disturbed by her surroundings. Never had she seen great structures such as the apartment buildings or vehicles such as cars. It was late, very late and the girl was scared. Upon instinct she ran and ducked into the closest thing to a hole in the ground she could find. This directs us back to the bar, where a desperate bartender has already called the police about a young preoccupied woman unconsciously burning the place down.
“Look sweetie, I know you're upset, but you can't go around just burning everything in sight. Come on lady! I got a business to run here. You're killing me.” He said. Of course the young girl didn't speak the foreign language of the male, so she completely ignored him, lost in her thoughts of Brother. It wasn't until the spray of a fire extinguisher hit her that she finally looked up at him. Her looked troubled the bartender. It was as if she were looking through him, but at him simultaneously. “Brother!” She said. “Is that you?” She approached the bartender crawling over the counter. He couldn't move. This was an extremely, attractive nude woman writhing on top of a counter, albeit covered in flames. His first instinct was to get the gun and blow this girl to kingdom come…okay, that was his second instinct. His real first instinct was to ogle that bodacious island girl body--should've gone for the gun.
“Well, does it look like arson, kid?” The Chief inquires. “Please tell me it ain't arson.”
“Fraid so, sir. Not only that, but it's a serial arsonist.”
“Oh come on! Wait! Tell me this ain't that Pele case I've been hearing bout.”
“Okay, feel me in. What's the deal with this girl?”
“I'm sure you've seen this before, sir. Orphaned child taken in by dysfunctional family. Sexual abuse from her pops, physical abuse from the mom and sister. Apparently, the only sane one in the house was her adopted brother. Rumor has it that they were together.”
“Together?” The Chief looked befuddled.
“Yeah, you know…” The officer proceeds to make a sound like bed springs squeaking while pumping his fist.
“Riiiigghhtt. I can see how that can make someone a little crazy.”
“Sir, this girl passed crazy a long time ago. I wasn't finished.”
“Well, finish. We've got work to do.”
“Okay, so they say that the sister found out about the girl and told the mom. The mom and father got into it. Brother got involved and then pops gets hold of a gun. Boom, boom, boom, boom...triple homicide and suicide. Later on it turned out the father had a thing for kidnapping young girls--virgins. They found a whole entombment of them in the backyard. A real perverted piece of work.”
“Where was the girl?”
“The son kept her hidden. He told the dad that she had run away long ago. Well, the dad found out about her, but killed everybody involved and himself before he found her. Eventually, she came out of her hole looking for her lover/brother.”
“Well, when she saw that grizzly sight. She snapped. I mean Chernobyl snapped, sir. Apparently, she had…um…has some pretty heavy latent pyrokinesis going on.”
“Apparently.” The chief said sarcastically.
“To cut a long story short, she was taken into the crazy house and…uh…yeah. She's nuts. She started getting into these weird mythology books. She was all believing she was some kind of virgin goddess or something. Kept calling everyone, sky brother or Earth sister and things like that. She was a certified lunatic, sir. They said they were unable to help her. She was untreatable. Eventually, she ended up burning the entire building down; killed 35 people that day. She's been running loose ever since.”
“What tha @#$%? Is there some good reason I am just now hearing all of this?”
The officer hangs his head down low. “Paperwork, sir. Nobody wants the paperwork.”
“!#@$!! Paperwork! I'll show those bozos some paperwork! I want everyman we got on this case NOW!! PRONTO!!” The officer stood looking nervous and confused. “NOW!!” With that, he ran off to convey the message.
“Oh and kid!” He yelled to the exiting officer. “You're wrong.”
“About what, sir?” the officer inquired.
The chief scratched his temple and said, “I ain't never seen no sh!t like this.”
