The combination of the shock and lack of sustenance had caused Benjamin to faint, a small trail of blood laced around the rock under his head.

Meanwhile, the beast's head resealed and it flew towards the child, unencumbered by the obstacles the ground provided. He quickly snatched her from the man's hands, and as flesh touched stone, the child turned the same hue of blue as well.

-Aegis got up from the blow, not phased at all. It would take more than a mere rock creature to take him down. He looked towards the girl's guardian, unconscious.-

I...I'm stuck...

-He thought. He'd never had such a burden thrust upon him. It was tough to figure this out.-

As the man sat on the ground thinking, the golem slowly sank into the earth, leaving only a ring of dust to show that he had disappeared and taking Kasia with him.

"Damnit! No!"

-Aegis yelled, running to the spot the creature sank into and clawing furiously at the dirt. He had never ever let somebody be taken or hurt. Nobody.-

"God damnit! No!"

-He gripped the sand tightly in his fists. Reluctantly, he left the spot and strode towards Kasia's guardian. He slapped his face a bit. Eventually, he awoke.-

Kasia's POV:
The blue crystal surrounding her shattered, and she blinked as her eyes adjusted to the darkness. Where was she? She turned her head and looked at the rough outline of passages ahead of her.

"Where am I?" she whispered.

Kasia tugged at the rock arm that was secured around her torso, and it slowly lowered her to the earth. White light suddenly filled the cavern, blinding her for a few moments.

Benjamin's POV:
"Kasia?" he murmured, his eyes still closed shut, dreams weaving through his consciousness.

He was abruptly slapped and struggled to wake.

"Kasia!" he yelled urgently, gripping the man's arms as his eyes opened. "Oh no, oh no! What's happened to me?"

He gripped his face, his eyes filled with horror.

"Good God, I've been blinded!"

-Aegis moved to calm the man down.-

"Kasia...beautiful name."

-He helped the startled man up.-

"It's...a good thing you didn't see me fail. She's gone. The creature got her."

-Aegis looked away from the man, totally aware that his blindness incapacitated him from seeing Aegis, but he was too ashamed. What if Kasia was that man's daughter?-

Kasia's POV:
She turned around to find a boy standing behind her, wearing tattered white pants covered in dirt stains.

"Where am I?" she repeated.

"That will be revealed in time. Kasia, I have spent so much time seeking for you. We must hurry."

She stared at him curiously and, as he began walking briskly down the labyrinth passageways, she hurried to catch up.

Benjamin's POV:
"She's gone?" he asked, his voice shaky and tears welling in his eyes.

He searched around, his hands looking for something to grasp, and finally fell upon the fabric of what seemed to be the man's shirt.

"How could you? She was all I had left. She was everything to me!"

He fell on his knees, crying silently.

-Aegis felt a small tear run down his cheek. He felt horrible.-

"The creature was too powerful for me."

-He couldn't think of anything else to say to the man. He felt responsible for all of this; the creature, the girl, and the man's blindness.-

"I'm sorry."

-He said with a shaky voice.-

Kasia's POV:
The white light dimmed and the passage grew narrower.

"Where are we going?" asked Kasia.

"You will see," responded the boy.

She was suddenly clothed in a fog of smoke, making her cough and her eyes run.

Benjamin's POV:
Benjamin sighed dejectedly.

"I understand," he said. "That beast was...quite something. I doubt anyone could overpower it. I thank you for your attempts for helping us, when we are only strangers to you."

-Aegis was unmoved by the man's calm. He still felt like he failed miserably.-

"No."

-He rose and stared into the sun silently.-

"I'm supposed to be some sort of great person. I'm supposed to have a purpose. For so many years I've been gone...and when I finally return to Clauden, when I finally come home..."

-Aegis closed his eyes and let the warmth wash over him.-

"...I fail. Just like that."

"Well..."

He paused for a while, scratching his greasy hair.

"The expectations that other people have for you might be too high for anyone to reach. Or perhaps the expectations you have for yourself..."

He trailed off in thought.

"Wait. What is this..this Clauden?"

His eyes lit bright with interest.

-Aegis was upset at the man. He didn't understand it.-

"You don't know me. I had to save entire dimensions. I had to rid people of their problems."

-He lowered his head.-

"Something nobody will ever understand."

Kasia's POV:
She frantically searched for the boy's hand and finally found it, grasping it tightly so that the knuckles in her pink fist turned white.

"Don't worry," his voice came wafting soothingly through the fog. "Everything will be all right."

Finally the fog dissipated, and her eyes opened wide at the sight. She turned back around, and saw the passageways through which they had come. They were filled with pipes and had green slime solidified to the ceilings and walls.

Benjamin's POV:
He spoke softly, "But why did you have to? Because people expected you to. They expected you to do unhumanly things. Praeternatural things. You can't solve every problem. Only God can."

-Aegis shook his head. The man still didn't understand. He quickly turned to face the man, his face wrought with anger and grief.-

"They killed my family! They stole my life! The only way to get them back was to do what I was asked to do!"

-He closed his eyes and grabbed a handful of his own hair, pulling it in grief.-

"I failed even then. The dimension was destroyed. My family was killed."

-Aegis turned and ran into the horizon without so much as a second thought to Benjamin's presence or feelings. He was heading towards the Church.-

Kasia's POV:
She turned back around and for a second she was blinded by the bright light that seemed to be coming from the sky.

"Watch out!" she heard a girl scream.

She saw a blur of brown and then felt pushed down by a sudden weight as something climbed onto her.

"Hey!" she said, laughing from the feeling of its legs tickle her skin.

Benjamin's POV:
He sat there for a second, blinking, unable to believe that the man had just left. His hopes were gone as quickly as they had come, and he sat down with a thud, the air rushing out of him. Hearing wagon wheels in the distance, he turned towards the sound. As the sound came closer, he heard hooves and then, finally, laughter of what seemed to be women.

"Hey, look there!" one of them said.

"Yoo hoo?" another asked.

"H-h-hello?" he stuttered, getting up but falling again.

"Aw, poor thing. Well let's help him."

Two of the women seemed to get off of the wagon and, grabbing him by his armpits, lifted him onto the wagon.

"Who are you?" he asked.

"We're your saviors!" one of the women giggled.
