Book 2 - NEW NARRATOR REVEALED!
He held an arm in his lap, and blood dripped from the detached limb if he jostled it enough. The limb had a dual purpose; the first was to help him, and the second was to cover up the specialized weapon so that Makuta Luroka could not see it.
First they would talk, and then Luroka would perish.
“I would offer you a seat,” Xaeraz continued, “but I doubt you could do anything but crush the chair.”
Luroka grunted and stalked forward, knocking the chair aside and halting in front of the small table that sat between the two of them. Xaeraz ignored the way the shadows seemed to grow around the Makuta. Brushing his fingers along the weapon concealed in his lap, Xaeraz spoke again.
“You’re awfully quiet today.”
“I have never been the most outspoken of Makuta,” Luroka growled, his voice deep, guttural, and ruthlessly cold. “Others speak enough as it is. And often, I have others to speak my words for me.”
“That is true,” Xaeraz agreed. “Although Sumiki isn’t here right now....”
“He holds no illusions as to your intentions,” Luroka said. “You would kill him before he could set foot in this room.”
“And you do not believe I would do the same to you?”
“I stand here as proof that you would not do the same to me... and I am a Makuta. You have no hope of overpowering me. My cooperation with you thus far has been entirely of my own accord, and it shall remain that way.”
Deciding to leave that particular issue of loyalty alone for the moment, Xaeraz pushed on. “You know, I thought I could trust you and Sumiki. I thought you were working for me... or at least with me. But you broke the rules of my little game... you refused to follow my agenda... and to me that suggests that you both have an agenda of your own.”
The Makuta regarded him silently, and under the table Xaeraz clenched his fists to avoid allowing his anger to show on his face.
“I take it,” the Fe-Matoran said, “that your silence means I was not the only one you were working with. Who else has your attentions? Please, enlighten me – after all, I will surely not be walking away from this meeting.”
“Your cause has long been a lost one,” Luroka said. “I know of your bloodlust and what brought it forth. I understand the depths of your madness perhaps even more clearly than those who afflicted it upon you, for it was I who gave them the idea in the first place."
Yes, Xaeraz is one of the narrators of Bionicle Mafia Book 2: Extraction, joining Voltex and three (four?) others.
Who else will share their point of view?
