Tor Gog sighed, “I knew you would not trust me, but…I thought a threat this great might bring us together. I was wrong.”
She blew a kiss and a wave of annihilation extended and the two extra Hekeriki’s disappeared. Tor Gog lifted the unconscious Hekeriki and placed her in Godart’s arms to no detriment to either. Godart hugged Hekeriki tight.
"Godart what you just experienced was Hekeriki’s mind breaking, and in breaking it called upon annihilation. She won’t have control of it, and it might just cause her to destroy things she loves when she cannot control it. These other versions of her might appear again. Just now they are very much like her, their timelines have not diverged enough. Even a few months down the line, these timelines will diverge sharply enough that these Hekerikis will be as different from her as she is from me.
I wasn’t lying.
I am from a timeline where I already accessed the engine of the Metal Discord Kuelo. It was originally an orphan’s spirit in it. But then Hekeriki began to love you, to look up to you, to care about you. Naeil knew you, knew you as a person. But Hekeriki? She loved you.
So in one timeline to further torment her, when you died I put your spirit inside the engine of the Metal Discord Kuelo.
I wasn’t lying when I said this specific timeline iteration of the MDK I built, but not to harm Hekeriki as she thinks.
She was right when she said if I had access to the heart of the MDK I could rewrite all of reality. And I did so, until I smashed into a being shattering reality as it moved, this being known as Holys. This reality Hekeriki is living through IS the best I could create with Holys’ meddling.
But now that she has broken under the strain, and annihilation begins to influence her life, it may be worse than I originally created. It will be up to you to save her Godart, or she will become a monster to herself and the world.
Inside the armory of the Tomb Factory of Holys is a living Crystal Key that Chronomancer stole from me.
If you and Hekeriki can recover it, you may just be able to keep the Hekeriki you know and love whole. The MDK can take you safely there, but once there Hekeriki will have to go on foot.
All three timeline versions of Hekeriki must recover the key if she is to be made psychically whole once more. And only you can communicate with each."
Godart could tell Tor Gog was not lying. He wasn’t sure what freaked him out more, that a version of himself was trapped in the MDK like some sort of spirit battery. Or that Tor Gog had won. Then again Godart realized in an infinite number of fights between Hekeriki and Tor Gog, there was always an eventually where she won…
Time travel, reality bending, Godart was tired of all of it. But he knew he cared about Hekeriki and had to save her.
Tor Gog asked, “Do you have any other questions before I release you both to the timelines from where i plucked you?”
Godart suddenly realized Tor Gog was the most frightening being he had ever encountered.
