Gravis pulled the thing out and looked at it.
It released a maddened and enraged shriek, but Gravis didn't falter. It was a long, black worm with eyes completely covering its body. It looked like an abomination that parents would make up to scare their children into behaving.
More spires shot at Gravis, but Gravis only tightened his hold on the worm. The spires broke down before they could reach him.
"You look really disgusting, Heaven," Gravis said evenly. "Who would have expected that the thing that has haunted me for six whole years was such a disgusting worm? Would you have ever expected that this day would come?"
"You meddling ant!" it shouted in its screechy voice. "Why won't you just die!? If your father weren't there to protect you, you would have died long ago!"
"And if you weren't born from Heaven, you would have also died many times over. Background is also a part of strength," Gravis said.
