100 List Challenge: Obsession

The Crying Traveler
Elly watched sadly as Nakh scanned through the papers. They snuck into a library in the giant's clan, thanks to an old friend of Nakh because Nakh wanted to go through the maps to find out where his cherry might disappear to and how to bring him back to life.

The father and son hand't spoken to each other for days at end, what with Nakh studying feverishly in the library, only moving to hide out of sight whenever Nakh's friend warned him someone was coming or when he is too hungry or tired to concentrate. This is the time when Elly hated the most.

"Daddy...? Let's eat," Elly tried testing the waters.

"I'm busy, Elly. Go have dinner yourself."

But...But you need to eat too..."

"I said go away, Elly!" Elly shouted. "Can't you see I'm busy?!"

"Fine!" Elly shouted back. "Go starve yourself to death if you want!"

Elly picked a random scroll and threw at Nakh before he ran out of the library, leaving Nakh to his thoughts.

Sometimes he regrets choosing to follow his father on his search.


Love of the Damned
"What do you think of my home?"

Faira looked around the secretary's home. Looks just as nice as any single woman's home. It was very homey and comfortable.

"I like it. I admire you keep this place so spick and span."

"You haven't seen nothing yet," Brenda the secretary winked. "Come, I'll show you my special room."

Brenda led Faira into a dark room. She told him to stay there while she looked for the light swith. A few moments later, a dim yellowish-orange light was on and Breanda could be seen in front lighting a few candles.

Faira gasped in horror at the sight of the room. Here, there and everywhere, there were pictures of Thilius. Thilius' names were written all over the wall, and newspaper clippings and article cut-outs all based on Thilius were stuck in every nook and cranny. There were also pictures of him and Thilius but with his face burnt or torn off, and there was one replaced with her cut-out picture.

"Wha...What's this...?"

"Beautiful, isn't it?" Brenda asked with an eerie glow on her face. "This would make a great display room. Thilius would love it, don't you think? Although it's missing just one thing..."

Faira shuddered as she produced an axe behind one of the flower rings that had Thilius' summer cover on.

"...Just you."



Even though Elly had chosen to follow his father on the search, sometimes he feels left out and abandoned,even forgotten sometimes. Nakh been very obsessed in searching for Kal and Melly, and at the same time, he was also obsessed wuth ways to bring the dead back to life.

Whenever he had a possible new lead yo reviving the dead, he would test it out on animals first by killing one and going to the rituals, or finding dead bodies of humans and test it on them.

He did successfully bring back a teenage girl to life in one occasion, and successfully kept her alive and let her tag along in their journey for about 2 months. But when someone recognized her as his dead ex-girlfriend whom he had dumped a few hours before she decided to commit suicide, her sad memories returned and her desire to die reversed the effects of the resurrection, thus they were back to Square One again.

In Thili-Fai scene, Brenda is a personal secretary of The Boss who had a secret crush on Thilius that led into an obsession after Thilius broke her fall when she slipped and fell down the stairs. She longed with be with Thilius and despised Faira who was his 'wife', and decided to lure Fai into her home so that she could kill him and then lure Thili into becoming part of her altar collection.

Of course, Thili saved the day, rescued Fai and Brenda was arrested for kidnapping and attempted murder before being sent to the Institution for the Criminally Insane
