Minerva leaned toward him, approached him, and felt a ma Eziodre embracing with affection all the fatigue, all its pain.
"I wish to talk to you, but through through you. You are the Profeta. She raised her arms above her and the ceiling of the vaultda became the firmament. The beaming face and intangibleMinerva material showed an expression of infinite sadness-. You have represented your role ... You have attached as if you were a ancla. .. But now, remains silent ... so that we can enter into communion. "I was sad-. Listen! you. You are the Profeta. She raised her arms above her and the ceiling of the vaultda became the firmament. The beaming face and intangibleMinerva material showed an expression of infinite sadness-. You have represented your role ... You have attached as if you were a ancla. .. But now, remains silent ... so that we can enter into communion. "I was sad-. Listen!
Ezio saw the sky and the stars, listening to her music. He saw the Earth spinning, as if looking from s.p.a.ce. Continents and even looked on them, a couple of cities.
"When we were still meat, and our home was full, yours betrayed us. To us who you believe. To us who gave you life!
He paused, and if a G.o.ddess can shed tears, seetio. Appeared before them the vision of a war, human pheromonesces fighting against their former masters with handmade weapons.
"We were strong. But ye were many. And toWe were both craving for war.
Then came a new image of the Earth are closestma now, but still seen from s.p.a.ce. Then he went awayDose, becoming smaller, and Ezio saw that there was only one of several planets whose orbits revolve around a star: the Sun "As we were busy with worldly affairs, that we forget about heaven. And when we got to pay attention ...
While he spoke Minerva, Ezio saw the sun burst into a huge cast a light crown insoportable, a light absorbing Earth.
"I gave Eden. But among all believe the war and death and turned Eden into h.e.l.l. The world has burnedta be reduced to ashes. Should have ended at that moment. But I believe our image and likeness. I believe to survive. " to survive. "
Ezio saw from the total devastation that the sun seemed to have caused on Earth emerged from the rubble a Unico ash-covered arm rose up. Grand visions of a windswept plain ran the whole speedmortality from heaven, was none other than the roof of the Dome. For he moved people ... broken, ephemeral, but brave.
"And we rebuild," he continued Minerva-. It took strength, sacrifice and compa.s.sion, but the rebuild! And little by little, the Earth was recovering, slowly life returned to the world, the green shoots emerged once again the generous floor ... And we set out to ensure that never again repeated a tragedy of that caliber.
Ezio looked back at the sky. A horizon. In it, temples and forbut, writing in stone, libraries full of scrolls, ships, cities, music and dancing ..., shapes and forms of epochs and ciCivilizations old did not know, but she recognized as the work of other human beings like him ...
"But now we are dying," said Minerva. And the timepo run against us ... Truth becomes myth and youGoing. What we build will be misunderstood. But Ezio, allowingI keep my words and to reflect the message of what we lost.
Dome building a picture emerged, and more.
Ezio looked on as if dreaming.
"But leave my words bring hope. You must find the other temples. Temples such as this. Consknew who reject are destroyed by war. They worked to protect, to save the Fire. If you can findshow him, if you can save your work, you could also save this world.
Ezio see Earth again. The horizon of the roof of the vault showed a city like San Gimignano a giant, a future city, a city with a tower built of sticksgive to the others who left in the dark streets running beneath them, a city on a distant island. And then, everything was merged again with a view of the Sun "But you must be quick," said Minerva-. Because time is increasingly scarce. Protect yourself against Templar Cross ... as muchas will stand in your way.
Ezio looked up. He saw the sun, burning with rage, as ifhad waiting. And then it was like an explosion, although the explosion inside glimpse believed Templar Cross.
The vision began to fade. Minerva stays Eziowere alone, and the voice of the G.o.ddess also began to disappear inside a tunnel of infinite length.
"It is done ... My people must now leave this world ... All of us ... But the message is delivered ... It's up now. We can not do more.
And suddenly it was dark, silent, and the vault again became a dark underground chamber, completely empty.
Ezio broke his footsteps. Again entered the lobby and saw Rodrigo lying on a bench, a trickle of green bile loomdo from the corner of his mouth.
"I'm dying," said Rodrigo-. I have taken the poison reserved at the time of my loss, since there is now world in which to live. ... But tell me, tell me before you leave for good this place of wrath and tears ... tell me, in the vault ... What have you seen? Who have you found?
"Nothing. A n.o.body replied.
He toured the Sistine Chapel and went to the sunlight to meet friends who were there waiting. There was a new world to build.
