AD- Vision of Ugilak

She stood in a white void. It was a relief to know that she was no longer in the shadow realm, but it disoriented her, the lack of beginning or end. Alexis didn’t mind that she wore nothing but a long white sleeveless slip, which was almost as unusual as her surroundings. Also, she had no idea where this was or how she got there, and yet that didn’t seem to bother her either.
A glowing figure approached slowly, holding itself almost regally. There was no sex, no definition, it was neither young nor old, tall nor short. It seemed as if it were made of pure balance, like a god, but Alexis was ignorant of which. She’d never met a God in person, though she talked to her own often, and yet this one felt familiar. As it came closer its shape began to become more defined. It’s color seemed to solidify from an iridescent white of all colors to a more green, then to a sickly green. Then its shape shifted ever so slightly, becoming shorter, stockier and more defined in the silhouette. By the time it reached her, the androgynous being had turned itself into that of a less smelly goblin.
“I,” it began in a booming clear voice followed by a round of coughing and hacking in which it’s voice became screechy, like nails on a glass window, “Eye ahm Ugilak!”
Alexis furrowed her brow. She’d never heard of a goblin-looking God named Ugilak before. “Pardon?”
“Eye ahm Ugilak?” it repeated a little peevishly, “Don yu remember Ugilak?” She shook her head, brow still furrowed. He sighed, “Mordalz! Alwayz screwin up ze flow uf dingz ahn nevir remembir anyding!”
Alexis stood quietly while the goblin-thing ranted. This was by far the strangest thing she’d ever seen.
“Yu kno Bahumad,” it said to the air above him, “i woud be nize if yu woud proviyed chour zervand wid mo dedaled vizonz!” He waited expectantly for a reply, but sighed after a moment and turned back to Alexis. “Yu’r juz gona ave do druzd Ugilak on diz. Yu ar gona ned all ze elp yu cahn ged. Zings ar gona ged a lidle wierder!”
“Okay,” she said still uncertain as to what was going on, and only partially able to understand him.
“Ahm prod zad yu ar ze onz vixing zings ahn nod ze onez mezing dingz up, bud dingz ar aboud to ged worze. Fade, ze bidch, iz ze one doin ziz.” Ugilak sighed dramatcily, then nodded to some voice in his head. “Ze wandz Ugilak do zend yu bag. Zend mah regadz do de boyz, zond go inzane like lazd dime, ahn good luk!”
He waved her goodbye then make a kicking motion that sent her out of the white place and instantly into a world of pain. She could only see blurs of color as she fought the pain. It seemed like an eternity before a wave of calm overtook her and sent her into a dreamless sleep.
