Come, you have prepared for this, with fasting and meditation. You are ready. Don't be shy, put your hands down, the god will want to see exactly what he is getting. A virgin is not so easily found these days.

You are still a virgin, are you not?
It's just ...

this thing that has come down from the clouds and settled on the hilltop amidst the ancient leaning stones ...
... it's a lot more scary than the legends made it out to be.

Much less of the majestic, more of the grotesque.
Especially when the wind shifts for a moment and the foul stench wafts in our direction ...
All of a sudden the idea of 'surrendering myself to the sacred union with the emissary of the heavens' seems a lot less appealing.
A bit late to back out from this probably...

For choosing me as sacrifice,
perhaps the most important quality,
was not so much virginity but gullibility ...

I feel myself pushed forward,
and the veiled priestesses close their ranks behind me.

Once I was one of them.

It is no coincidence,
that what they've veiled are their faces,
and nothing else -- I'm severed from them,
the doubt and fear and pleading in my eyes,
can find no recognition in theirs.

I am already no longer of this world,
standing, with trembling heart, between the two.
I could let myself crumble to the ground asking it to swallow me,
but Mother Earth too would reject me as I'm promised to the sky-lords.

So I close my eyes and take the first hesitant step forward.

I would like to offer my services,towards the task of sacrificing Virgins.....I quite enjoy de-flowering them ;) ;)
( Wait....wait a minute....what DO you mean,i have to use a dagger on them ??) :eek: :eek:
Rituals do change over time ...
and sometimes the blood and the body is not really actually blood and body
... and so about all that stabbing,

all you've got to do really is demonstrate to them that your dagger is better than theirs and they might go along with it ;)

ENTER MY REALM
One last time I turn to look back.
The priestesses and acolytes
stand veiled and arms linked,
an impenetrable circle-wall,
chanting rhythmically.
Behind them, with torch and blade,
a delegation of the most honored warriors
(if anyone were to try something desperate ... for instance me)

I've no longer got a home in this world.

But then there is that other voice,
syllables sharp and cutting,
as if it were right inside me,

Flashing lights and pulsing sounds,
luring voices, mesmerize,
shimmering luminescence engulfs me,
A creeping mist rising round my feet
swirling, crawling,
it weaves a living fog around me

Distant fingers beckon,
A will from beyond summoning.

The chant of the priesthood breaks into triumphant ululation,
as they watch me vanish into glowing mist,
my feet no lounger touching ground.

"She is taken!"

"Subject safely acquired."
"Take her to the examination room and prep her, she is already naked. Yes, restrain her until we are sure she is suitably docile."
"And decontaminated?"
"Of course."

Dim sensation of horizontal travel, as if floating. Bright lights. Shadowy figures.
Is this truly the house of God?

Why . . . am . . . I . . . . spread . . . . out . . . . like . . . . . this . . . . . . cannot move . . . . so bright . . . . . . what are they doing?

DO NOT FEAR, CHILD
YOU ARE AN HONOURED GUEST
GIFTED BY YOUR PEOPLE
MY SERVANTS WILL EXAMINE YOU NOW
WE HAVE GREAT PLANS FOR YOU
YOU ARE MY CHOSEN
 
It has been so long since I have had sex, do you think my hymen has grown back ? I so love the fantasy of sacrifice on the altar. Drug me, hypnotize me, make me believe I will serve my god in the after life and I will go willingly to the altar. Do with me what you will. Take me. Remove my heart as an offering.

Dim sensation of horizontal travel, as if floating. Bright lights. Shadowy figures.
Is this truly the house of God?
It is strange and far from anything I might have imagined,
but then my imagination mostly comes from what I've lived, seen, or dreamed,
The Gods must surely stand above and beyond all that.
Strange beyond all dreams ...

Why . . . am . . . I . . . . spread . . . . out . . . . like . . . . . this . . . . . . cannot move . . . . so bright . . . . . . what are they doing?
It's a disquieting feeling ...
But after I was inducted into the temple,
there were often similar rites, or exercises.

I would be spread out on the stone, the smooth flat altar.
Smooth except for the channels leading to a trough,
for my blood to be collected?
The first time I thought, now they are going to do it ...

but what they did, instead,
was accustom me to many different pains and sensations.
Needles, hot liquids, cold ice, pincers and clamps, stings and lashes,
and some where I never could tell what it quite was, being blindfolded,
and yes, cuts, fine cuts, careful incisions with sharp blades,
placed always so that, if scars would show,
they'd be either decorative or hard to find.

I learned to cope with all of these,
to remain still, and accept.
Learned to enter a certain state of mind,
whenever I was bound and stretched that way.
Expecting pain, strange sensations and intrusions,
and giving in to them.

I understand it was part of the preparations ...
a training of kind, a conditioning,
... the priesthood, some of them knew a little of what would come, but not all ...
it's important for me to stay still and not resist,
otherwise everything could yet go bad
and I might fail at my purpose.

The secret brotherhood converges around the chosen sacrifice.

"Over the centuries our number has dwindled ...
but now the stars are right,
we are still just enough,
and with this gift,
the Great One shall become manifest in the world once more!"

"That really was a great idea of yours ... doing this photoshoot with natural light, your great new high ISO camera, and just a bit of candlelight... such a warm and suble illumination! ... even if it is just tealights!"

"But I'm actually getting a bit cold now, can we wrap it up?"

"Oh one more session ... with a blindfold ... okay ... why not..."
"you've got any other tricks up your sleeve?"
