Reincarnatio Part 5: The Hot One

Oh, and here we are again! I’m so excited to see you again, my dear Reader. Reincarnatio is just bouncing with joy at seeing your lovely, smiling face! So, take a seat and let’s look at the next Part, shall we? And here it is, Reincarnatio Part 5: The Hot One.

A strong wind blew the trees, causing an eerie moaning and cracking to fill the air. Clouds loomed in the sky, gray and untouchable except for a lone volcano that pierced them. The green forest stopped at the bottom of the volcano and was replaced by grim black stone that climbed up towards the clouds, sharply jutting out from the volcano. Steam seeped from the black rock and flowed from a cave near the top of the volcano.

Crazed laughter rose in the air around the cave, circling the volcano and mixing in with the steam and clouds. “Go, Nelson, go!” Belina laughed at the mossy green rock that she had just pushed down the cave and deeper into the volcano. The rock bounced on the shiny black ground, and rolled into a pool of lava that flowed from a crack in the wall. “Oh no, Nelson!” Belina yelled as she ran towards the lava pool. She skidded to a stop before her feet were buried in the molten liquid, her bearskin dress hugging tight to the curves of her body, and coming short on her thighs.

“Nelson, don’t play in the lava! Now is not the time, I hear a rumbling and I feel a storm coming. So then, Nelson, you know we have to sleep now.” She said, reaching into the lava, pulling the green and now-burnt rock out of the popping, molten liquid. Belina hugged the large rock to her chest and began walking towards a pile of dry orange-brown leaves and twigs in a small corner in the cave. She set the rock down next to the pile of foliage, “A fire to keep us warm through the night?” Belina asked the rock. “Of course we can have one, Nelson!” She knelt down and touched a leaf, causing sparks of fire to escape her finger tips and consume the leaf. Belina set the burning leaf down on the pile and the flame raced across the rest of the leaves and branches, creating a large orange-yellow fire that lit up Belina’s smiling face, matted red hair and blazing yellow eyes.

“How’s that, Nelson?” She asked, stepping into the fire. “I think it’ll do just fine.” she said, laying down on the burning pile. She reached out and pulled Nelson to her, humming a lullaby as she did so. “Now is sleep time.” she said, hugging Nelson tight to her chest, a smile spreading wide across her face. “Dream sweet, Nelson.” she said, her eyes fluttering shut.

Ronais lay in her bed, Sirnet cuddled next to her. She smiled and closed her eyes, drifting off into the realm of deep sleep.
