(I haven't checked in with Erick for a few weeks. His previous attempt at becoming a big cosmic threat is backfiring.
(Black Heart/Erick's World, Zone 4)
Serious Erick groaned, his existence reduced to constant agony. He looked out over his stolen kingdom, watching the energy from captured living beings drained and converted into the mesh of black tendrils that hover in the reddened sky.
Black Heart, reduced to a tiny representation of his namesake, sat beating pathetically, attached to a pillar of tendrils. The same tendrils in the sky, connected to this grotesque mass.
Erick sighed, regretting the day he'd taken the energy of an entire universe into his mortal body. See...why I gathered it over eons? Black Heart spoke to Erick. Erick closed his eyes and nodded, opening and curling his hands, he created orb-like singularities, dispersing more energy into the tendril mesh. He'd been doing this for days, expelling energy, trying to ease the pain of the rebound his body was experiencing.
"What now?" He asked Black Heart, Simple, keep it going, until I can recreate my old form...and all will be returned to the way I intended it.
"And me?" Erick asked, with baited breath. I'll forgive this insolence...but only once. Black Heart said, and then went silent.
