Chapter 2: Awakening

Hunger.
The only thing I feel, nothing else only hunger. A hunger deep in my bones yearning for more than just food, for more than just meat, bread, and drink. Bone aching lust for power, for divine power. Divine power taken from me and from my child.
A pale face and dark eyes float above my face bright and blinding, but I do not look away or close my eyes, I can't. My hand reaches for the face as the smell of raw uncooked meat reaches me. Human meat. Sudden rage and hate fills me and my black bone hand clamps tight to the jaw of the face.
Screams fill the air as my hate fuels the hell fire bowl that i rested in and it ignites around me and the body that belongs to the face. The face is frozen in a contorted scream as my jaw bone snaps into place and my mouth opens wide. Tears fall from the dark eyes as the skin rips away from its face and body, long strips that twist and curl into my mouth and rap around my blackened bones. All that's left is a red, wet heart that burns bright for a moment then disappears in the hell fire flames.
Flexing my fingers a thin layer of skin cracks and falls away and floats in the air twirling before attaching its self to another black bone. My spine twists and aligns its self as I turn in the bowl. Eyes blazing I search for the source of the screaming.
I see them. All five pale human worms huddling together in the corner of the cage. Slowly I move through the fire, the skin along my bone falls away, swirls around me and then reforms on my bones. Again and again as I take each step towards the humans.
WHAAM
My head snaps back and i'm look at the back of the cage. More screaming echos through the cave as I lift my hands to my head and reposition my skull.
"YOU ATTACK ME!" I scream, raising my arms, "I MADE YOU WHO YOU ARE! GAVE YOU FREEDOM AND YOU REPAY ME WITH THIS!"
There bones clatter to floor as there skin and organs become my own. Everything that was theirs is mine all except there bright hearts.
