Venom

I was Innocent, Once.
It was dark, when the hole out of the underworld opened. They liked the dark. Smoke bellowed out of the hole and they thrust their pistons upward, as though there were invisible steps leading out into the new land. Their master has sent them to this land, their master, God of the underworld a powerful being, he was kind to Venom. He told them their family was murdered by their masters brothers and master tried to save them. But it was too late. They tossed their skull as they reached the air of the new world, nice and dark, a small smirk stretched across their maw. Saliva dripped from it's mouth as their soulless dark orbs scanned the area around them. Their last dagger entered out of the hole, and just as quick as it opened, closed without a trace. They were used to being in the dark, it was pleasant to them, there was a very faint light emanating from some luminescent fungus. It hurt their eyes a little bit a deep growl escaped their jaws, lifted a dagger, and started slicing them out of existence. "Much better." they exhausted in their mind. 

Venom shifted their mass to face another faint glow. Shifting their pistons forward to get a closer look they realized its and exit out of the cavern. They let out a snarl at the light and quickly backed up into the darkness. 
| "I shall wait until nighttime. I will be patient." Their masters younger brothers will pay for what they did to Venom's family. They killed them, and master took Venom in. Master was kind. But master gave them rules, they cannot hurt an innocent creature, Venom will receive pain for harming and innocent creature. They don't mind, they aren't here to make friends. They have no emotion anyway, so no attachments would be easy.  | "I'm here Poseidon and Zeus. And I'm coming for you." a short evil laugh came out of their mouth as a sharp toothed grin came across their ripped open mouth. The laugh was interrupted by a sudden cough, spreading saliva across the cave floor. They shook there head and composed themselves, took in a deep breath through their nostrils. They weren't used to the air here.

In fact, he wasn't used to breathing at all for a very, very long time. It was new, it was different, they didn't like change. But they are here for a reason. Revenge. 
| "No harm in resting until it's less light outside." Their black orbs located a corner in the cave and slowly moved their daggers over and slumped down so their cannons folded underneath them, the side of their body leaned against the cool cave wall. Their devil like tail curled around there hind daggers and they finally dipped their skull onto the cool ground. Their breathing sounded more like deep growling as their breath slowed and they shut their dark eyes. Secretly hoping to visit that ever rare dreamland.

Tried to keep our colors inside the lines
 
Heaving a dismal sigh of disappointment the maiden shuffled her hooves as she made her exit of the House of Mischief after receiving news that her friend was not currently available. Innocent of the establishment’s true nature, for it was meant to be a pleasure house full of carnal desires, drinks to indulge in, and other iniquities, she had come to visit a healer that she thought of as a friend. She thought they might have been able to play some fun game or cause humorous pranks. Though it seemed the healer, also an entertainer, was currently out and about doing something of her own planning. At a loss of what to do now the pinto sulked with the sullen practice of a spoiled foal. Her lower lip was extended in a pout, fiery sorrel ears drooped miserably, and her flaxen tail sagged limply all the while she shuffled along the corridors of the dark labyrinth.

Never minding much attention on where she was going, the sepia pegasus grew bored of her quiet tantrum since no one was the wiser and quickly picked up a high spirited trot. Had someone been around to witness her disenchantment she would have surely made a show of her misery, but she had no company. The jigging gait refreshed her mood and she was soon blissfully lost in the cloak of quietness. Easily forgetting her prior notion, the winged equine busied herself in a game crafted from her own imagination. In tune to the unsteady cadence of her hoof beats, she listened to lizards and frogs scamper about with muffled sounds and tried to count their number. A trickling echoed tantalizingly close yet the source of water remained unseen around each corner despite her efforts to find the stream. The dank smell of wet earth and old rock filled her nostrils. Mismatched eyes darted from the glowing crystals upon the ceiling to luminescent fungi tenaciously gripping the slimy wall. If a puddle appeared she would toss her head, forelock flopping behind her perked ears, and leap over the obstacle.

By chance the ivory and scarlet pied mare made her way back to the Depth’s yawning entrance in record time. About to frolic into the light, already distracted by the way her shadow pranced and danced, the timid pegasus rather abruptly froze in place. A noise! Diligently her ears strained in their upright position to eavesdrop on the sound. Opposing limbs were held poised midair, a left front and right hind, while her head was held stiffly high with white rimmed eyes. It had frightened yet exhilarated her because the deep, rough cackling had reminded her of laughter and she always delighted in laughter. Spasms of coughing resounded throughout the cavern and sent her heart galloping against her ribs. Blinking rapidly, still holding as motionless as a sighted doe, she took a scant breath before stamping down her hooves, pivoting away from the open forest, and marching in the direction of the black corner where another tunnel branched away. Oddly her shadow cast an even darker presence into the lightless passageway and a bottomless pit of darkness absorbed the far corner of the cave, which make the filly-mare wonder if a crevasse gaped there. The sunlight set her aglow in a bold outline as she squinted into the recess trying to decide if the ground would disappear beneath her hooves or not as she tentatively crept deeper into the dark. Calling out in a stage whisper, the voice was distinctly high-pitched like a foal’s, "H-hello? A-anybody here?" It was impossible to tell if she was hearing another breathing or if that was her own shallow breaths echoing from a distance. A slick sweat dampened her brow and warmed her chest though her shoulders and back shivered with trepidation.

I was Innocent, Once.
Just as they drifted off to sleep their slumber was disturbed by a noise. The soumd of another creature in the cave. Turns out they weren't alone after all. Their blackened orbs burst open and they slowly lift their skull upright. Then they very quietly gets back up on all four daggers. and observes the creature through the darkness. They haven't seen many creatures with wings, sure maybe webbed wings, but not any like the creature that was before him. They watch the other turn Venom's direction, he softly leans against the cave wall as they get closer and They hear it speak, a female. A young female.

 |"This should be fun" They smiled at the thought, his breath still having a slight growl to it. They realized that she knew they were there but alas, she couldn't see him. A toothy smile came across his slit open maw and saliva poured out of their mouth. They then took in a deep breath, sounding almost like a growl as the air entered their lungs. "That's far enough!"Their voice, deep and jagged, the sort of voice that could give another chills down the spine. They chose to stay in the darkness, They didn't want her to run. What if she could be of use to them, help them reach their goal. So and straining as it was to them, they attempted to be a soft as they could. Which wasn't their strong point, after a long pause he opened his jaw again "Who are you." the words were abrupt, demanding, and almost sounding annoyed. 

They don't understand why someone that she looked to be like would be down here, it was dark and vast. Who knows who or...what you could encounter. Including....them. They were finding it difficult to stifle letting out a cackle at the thought of the torment they could bring upon her. But they must not get ahead of themselves  | "She could be of use to us. Tread. Lightly."They rolled their head in annoyance of there own conscience. That doesn't mean they can't have a little fun with her first, although if their voice doesn't scare her, Their appearance surely will.

With each timid step forward the lightly built draft cast about her curious gaze, trying in vain to see more clearly into the vague obscurity of the cave. The void in the furthest recesses seemed to move. It could have been her imagination, or a trick of shadow, but she trembled nonetheless at the thought of falling into its emptiness. In a darkness blacker than pitch the shadow seemed to expand and her mismatched orbs gave a fast blink at what she thought was a pair of eerie white eyes, the likes of which she had never seen before, yet her disbelieving headshake only made her dizzy. Unable to focus, the walls seemed to close in on her with deep breaths that warmed her cheeks. Feeling jittery and flushed, while a chill still managed to dance along her spine, the pegasus reshuffled her wings in an attempt to sooth her nerves when an order erupted from nowhere.

Immediate obedience was the elicited response. With her head slightly lowered, nose stretching out tentatively into the dim, the maiden froze. Even the frightened quivering yielded to the authority in the coarse vocals. For a moment only a heady silence filled with her shallow breathing and a heavier, raspier breathing filling her ringing ears. Anticipation began to fill her as she awaited the next surprise.

A jolt sparked through the pied mare when a question was posed, the tone severe and irritated. Such discontent had her sorrel ears flicking back in anxious discomfort and, wanting to please the darkness, the filly-mare stammered, "A-a-a…" A timid gulp to try and clear her throat, "Alell." Quiet as a mouse at dawn she spoke her name. As if she were afraid that scampering through the predator’s den she might be pounced on if she brought too much more attention to herself. Then her persistent inquisitiveness overtook her and she asked, "A-are you a sh-shadow friend?" The idea of collecting another companion to spend time with lightened her worry though she remained absolutely still as she continued to identify where the ghastly voice was coming from.

I was Innocent, Once.

They forced an exhale vibrating their nostrils and shook there skull slightly. They quickly took note of her stammer. They couldn't figure out if it was out of fear, which would bring them bizarre joy, or if it was something she always does. It was just her name, that should be easy to say, just spit it out! A small toothy smile stretched over their mutilated mouth. The saliva continuing to expel from their maw creating a small puddle at their feet.

| "Be. Nice." Not their strongest point. Nice? How? Why? They dismissed the thought with an eye roll. They shifted their weight forward a few steps. Their steps were heavy and weighty, their daggers scraped along the stone like floor. They positioned themselves by some bioluminescent fungi just enough to shed a very dim light on them. The slight glow from the fungi made their all black orbs give off a reflective glow. The patches over their eyes seemed to have the same tint as the light coming off the fungus as well. They made sure she could only see from the eyes up. They wanted to show that they were equine but also how much taller they were compared to her. They scraped there dagger onto the ground a final time once they were in their desired position. They expressed little emotion to the mares question, the heavy breathing was strangely pleasant. She was showing fear...they liked some fear. 

"Although we are as dark as shadow, we aren't just a shadow." their voice was deep, low, and sharp, almost like two distorted voices meshed together. A devious smirk came across their maw, a small, steady drip of saliva dripping from their lips hitting the cave floor making a soft noise as it contacts with the stony ground. "Friend...You wouldn't say that...If you've saw us." a small deep cackle escaped their maw. | "Go on, show her who we really are." the thought cut their laughter short, they liked that idea. It was time. Besides, don't want to be rude after she so willingly told them her name.

They drew in a deep breath and again slowly moved their pistons forward in a slow, heavy stride. The dull light from the mouth of the cavern met their face a lot more gentle  than they expected for their eyes must be adjusting. It reveled their mutilated grin, their oily almost wet looking mane and pitch black coat, Their white splashed underbelly and smooth pointed tail adorned in the same oily fur as their coat. As they were taller than the mare, they got sort of close to her and opened their maw letting out a deep growl reveling their sharp pointed teeth and saliva dripping through them "We..." they bent down their crest so their lifeless eyes met hers only a foot away from the mare's face. Their deep, growling, gravelly voice continued, "...Are Venom." another soft growl exited their lips as they looked into her mismatched eyes. She was innocent. A snort escaped their maw, they would have enjoyed ending her life, no matter, she could still be of use. Even though they would have had such fun with it.  "Pity."
