Eighteen Righteous Lotus felt a sense of overwhelming satisfaction and peace of mind as he signed the death order with his inestimably stylish penmanship.
Ahmid Soft-Of-Shadow read over his shoulder, and was impressed with the god's peerless calligraphy.
Five lion dogs guarded the cardinal directions of the condemned house at all times, watchful and wary for any sneaking meddlers. They chased Ahmid away on several occasions.
Ahmid came and went as he pleased, but who was he to deny the dogs the chance to fulfill their purpose?
The lion dogs did not question their orders when they were called away to guard a manse in Creation. It was in their nature to guard as they were directed, after all.
Those who commanded the lion dogs never questioned why a defence was necessary. Marauders marauded as they did, and who could guess their motives?
Ahmid did not guess their motives. He measured their threads on the Tapestry, and their motives were his to determine.
The condemned deity fled. The celestial lions searched for clues, but none were to be found.
Ahmid knew where the clues were. He had carefully collected them all in his pockets some time earlier.
When the great and magnificent audit of Eighteen Righteous Lotus was called, Ahmid was announced for the prosecution.
Ahmid was unconcerned by his would-be assassins. He showed them an empty and mystical gesture, and then showed them why they should not pay attention to what he shows.
The speakers for the defence were mighty gods. Without speaking a word, they demanded worship and Ahmid was hard-pressed to keep his wits.
Fortunately, Ahmid's devoted secretary had all the information at its... fingertips.
Eighteen Righteous Blossom was harshly sentenced for attempting to have the lesser god killed to protect his own interests. He swore mighty oaths and vowed eternal vengeance...
...but not on Ahmid, for his soft presence had faded from the courtroom.
