8. Onyx

Black, white, black, white…

 My Ring is all that matters.

 Though even my brothers think me mad, I care not.

 Black, white, black, white…

 There are those who think my Master mad, too.

 Black.

 How can He be so, when he created such beauty?

 White.

 How can He be anything but, master of us Nine?

 Black, white, black, white…

 I care not.

 It no longer sits upon my finger, but I still feel its weight.

 Black, white, black, white…

 I no longer see it, but still its beauty blinds me.

 Black, white, black, white…

 My Ring is all that matters.
