Treachery: Entry X
The Ninth Circle
"At last I have reached the final circle. The Circle of Treachery. The farthest place in all of creation from the light of God. This is the deepest and blackest of all the circles, where the traitors are distinguished from the 'merely' fraudulent in that their acts involve betraying family, the community, guest, and even Christ.
Here it is nothing but a frozen wasteland where valleys mountains of ice stretch far above into the cold tempest of snow and icy winds caused by the beating of Lucifers black prodigious wings! Trapped within the mighty glaciers are the souls of the traitorous! Frozen within the azure fractals for all time! Alongside the traitors, the giants of old are condemned here as well, including Ephialtes and Typhon.
Soon I came upon the frozen Links of Judecca! A frigid land adorned in a forrest of icy chains that keep the Lord of Darkness within this cold abyss.
Past the forests of chains I came upon the frozen Lake Cocytus where Lucifer seats upon his throne of slate and ice bound to rusty gold chains. Upon the rim of his throne mounted the frozen body of Judas Iscariot as a trophy for the ultimate act of treachery!
Lucifers very presence filled me with a terror greater than any horror I had witnessed in The Inferno! The once most beautiful creation of God now the universes most abominable force of desolation and evil! The seraphim even when seated towered over my feeble being! The entirety of his brawny form and charred flesh coated black with the ashes of man sins except for the pallid white mane and hairs decorating his wrists! His face beastly and retains a draconian countenance!
From his waist down was that similar to that of a satyr. Goat like and every step of his black hooves towards me shook the icy realm 'round me! The Accusers six wings like a eagle stretched far enough to envelop 'round me tenfold!
He told me of my past and my inevitable future. Of my and all of mankind's destiny! To be cast down into the flames of Hell! He told me there was a way to advert this fate if I were to offer my soul unto him as a way of payment and when the time came! I would do a favor for him!
I denied this and forsook the vile Serpent! Told him to begone from me and cast his wiles upon another and leave me be!
It was then I awoke from my sleep! My astral journey had at last came to an end! Why this came to me in the dead hours of my slumber is unknown. Perhaps there was purpose for my brief travel trough the Nine Realms of Darkness. For our Lord works in mysterious ways"
