Some minor corrections with the spelling but great so far. eben is even I'm thinking. 'give herself a focus' What's that? Is Soru giving herself a focus of trying to stay focused? :)

yes as you deduced....the ritual is a fairly long one with the transformation having to be undergone .it is longer than it is written.

so Soru being only a Sapen she does not have the Primae stamina to stay awake without her ALLIA training ...think the ALLIA as a religous order utilizing disciplines such as SHAOLIN priests do here.

there are going to be spelling errors. Try as I might I will miss once in a while. Using this site as my testing ground to see if this novel is worthy of a future publishing. It is how it does here that will determine if I proceed with seeking a publishing company- e-book or otherwise. From the reactions I am seeing this far...not a lot of people on here are folloowing this. You, Gary, are only the third. Maybe I will not finish it if I am not getting anybody interested in it. I told myself when I started that if I was the only one following this the errors and sentence structure mistakes are not a major concern to me. Why should I bother with all that if not anybody is reading it.

Bother with it because Scribeslice is not the whole audience. Finish it and email it to evryone you can think of. People that you know will rad it and giver you feedback. I'm one for sure.

The comma's after you and please. Might not need them. I can see this acted out and an actor would slow the line down to show that they were weak, I'm thinking. What do you think?

You might not need the comma's after is and now. After eventually I think an 'and' would connect the sentence and help it read better.

What the?! What is she doing? Is that part of the ritual? I wasn't expecting 'tragic' like that. I like the story so far. Great job.

yep...that is how the ritual works. You have noticed that mostly there is only one Primae. If there is only the one where do the others go when their time is up. Wait for the nerxt chapter and i will show you.

      Perra had spent the last fourteen days, eluding detection.

      Perra searched every niche of the "VIRAGO" trying to find Neith, who
she learned had the information she sought. All attempts ended in failure. 1 comment

     During the process of systematically entering all the passageways, Perra came upon
one that appeared rarely used.

     As she neared one of the door cloths, she heard what sounded like two female
voices. Both of them sounded urgent; one was vaguely familiar. 3 comments

     Soru finished one of the meditation exercises taught her by the ALLIA; the one
allowing her to go without sleep.

     Soru took her guardian duty so seriously that she remained, unmoving on the mat
above both H'br'a's and Athene's reclining bodies as the ritual continued.

     She gripped her staff even tighter, to be prepared for any disturbance and to give
herself a focus as she attempted to stay vigilant. 5 comments

     As a few more minutes passed, H'br'a asked Soru to help her stand.
     H'br'a regained her balance, although unsteady.

     " Soru," she said, weakly, " Will you please find Neith and bring her to me?" 2 comments

     It was a diversion.

     H'br'a knew that to complete the ritual, she and Athene had to be alone.

     If Soru knew how the ritual would end, she would attempt to stop it.

     As Soru went off to comply with the request, H'br'a looked down upon the
completely transformed Athene.

     Everything was as it always was, the five digits, on each hand, had become four
talons. Her human feet had transformed into webbed feet. Athene's facial features had
changed, especially the configuration of the eyes into vertical slits. Athene's
beautiful, curvasceous body had altered into the curveless, Primae norm. There were two
differences, the hair remained blonde, the eyes stayed blue.

     Glad that Athene had survived the ascenscion, H'br'a leaned over and whispered
into her ear.

     "Arise, sister. Your physical transformation is now complete. I assure you that
all the voices in your head will calm down eventually and you only hear A'yd'a when
you have a question regarding anything that a previous Primae experienced.
They are all there but not allowed to speak except through A'yd'a. 4 comments

     You are aware there being two of us sharing the same existence is abnormal.

     You know what must be done to complete the ritual. How the last act of the ritual
needs to be concluded to remedy this unnatual duality. It will only take a few minutes. I
have sent Soru on a false errand."

     Athene slowly roused. Her eyelids opened. She stared at H'br'a, then at herself.
Her sense of wonderment at the successful transformation changed into stark reality as
she remembered what was required to complete the ascenscion into the one and only

     As Athene arose, she stood next to a near mirror image of herself, she spoke, " I
realize that it is the only way to complete the ritual but it is still tragic."

     H'br'a replied, " Tragic, yes. Necessary, of course. It is the nature of the
ascenscion. The way it has been since the beginning with A'yd'a. You learned it all
during the transmutation.

     However, you must do it now. Soru will return with Neith at any moment. You sense,
as well as I do, the urgency of the matter that is now your responsibility. We must end
this, quickly. I am prepared. Please complete the ritual's final step."

     Athene shook her head, sadly, as she realized what H'br'a was saying to her.

     She knew what she was about to do was the only conclusion.

     Without hesitation, Athene drew back her right arm and drove her main talon into
the last, unblemished spot on H'br'a's face, right between the eyes. 2 comments

     The force of the blow entering H'br'a's skull was a brutal enough signal to end,
both, the ritual and H'br'a's life.
