Bed head zed

Falaos and Christa begin to talk about... stuff.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"So, are we walking or going on horseback?" Ron asks
"I'd suggest we go on horseb-" Luke begins to say but is interupted
"We walk! That way some of us get some much needed exercise!" Jura says
"Really, we are going to walk all the way to Harknest?" Amber says
"Yes! Now march!" Jura says as she begins walking in the direction of Harknest

Bed head zed

Olivia starts walking.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam continued his dreaming in the hold.

Donotdiddlekids

Alexis sits next to Max still.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub recoiled the golem and walks up to Falaos. "Well, we're close to Vile root, any plans on where to look for that book??"

Bed head zed

"Well... A library would probably be a good place to start..." Falaos doesn't look away from the river.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"If this place even has a library, plus what is this book for exactly??" Sub said

Bed head zed

"I have no clue..."

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Guess we'll just have to found out..... Once we get there after this long boring trip." Sub said.

Bed head zed

Falaos sighs and stops looking into the river. "I'll be downstairs..." Falaos goes downstairs.

Donotdiddlekids

Alexis thinks for a second, and starts nudging Max to get him to possibly wake up.

YandereTsun

Momo communicates with the fishes.

SFXis

SFX was dozing off on the ship.
In a room in the ship, the stacked boxes started to move.

YandereTsun

Momo looked at the room with the boxes, as she sensed something there. "There's a disturbance in the ship..." Momo said. She walked to the room with the boxes.

SFXis

The boxes shaked, and then fell one by one. Behind the boxes were a boy. "P-please forgive me for intuding!" He exclaimed, covering his face with his arms.

SFXis

The boy stood up.

YandereTsun

Momo stared at the boy. "W-who are you? How did you get here?!"

SFXis

"U-umm... My name is Four. I did NOT mean to get in your ship. I didn't know it was yours! I was just hiding here! I'm sorry! I just got in this room because I saw a sea creature attack, so.. so... I hid here..." he said, panicking.

YandereTsun

"I-it's okay, I was just surprised. My name is Momo... wait, how did you manage to get in this ship without getting noticed?"

SFXis

"I-I saw you people fighting a group of men back in Macaria, and I thought it was cool, so I followed your friends by the dock and... I... carelessly got on the ship through the back without them knowing... I'm sorry..." Four said, nervous.

YandereTsun

Momo smiled. "It's okay! Don't apologize at everything... are you from Macaria, somehow?"

SFXis

Four nodded with a small smile. "Yeah... my grandfather works at a jewelry store chipping gems and stuff, my grandmother works at a bakery and my older brother is an apprentice of the blacksmith---" Four stared at Momo, then gasps in shock. "Wait... y-you're Momo... of the... of the... Tweedsley clan.... Y-you're His Excellence's daughter!" Four hopelessly bows.

YandereTsun

"Aahhh... i-it's okay! We're not in Macaria to begin with, so it's alright!" Momo smiled. "I need to get you to everyone..." Momo said, opening the door. She looked out, then looked around. "Hm... where are they...?"

SFXis

Four was getting nervous to meet the others.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh was still standing at the boat front deck, smiling as the coasts narrowed around the boat.

SFXis

Four looked at Hugh. He started to shiver a little because of his nervousness. He sighed then walked to Hugh. "Umm..."

YandereTsun

"Look! I found a boy in the ship's stock room!" Momo said to Hugh, enthusiastically.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh turned around to face Momo, and squeaked in surprised as he saw Four. Despite the surprise, Hugh smiled and checked his locket. "Four~! I knew you would be discovered before getting to Vile Root!" He extended his arm and shook the boy's hand vigourously. "Nice to meet you! My name is Hugh" The Anthro Rabbit added.

SFXis

"U-u-umm... nice to meet you, Sir Hugh!" Four let out a small smile. "Um, how did you know I was going to be... discovered?"

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh let out a chuckle. "Ha~! Sir? Call me Hugh, and you should be fine" He smiled again as the boy asked him. "Oh, it would be a very long story... And I wouldn't like to take too much of your Time..." The rabbit let out another chuckle and looked at Momo.

SFXis

"I would really like to know, sir--- I mean, Hugh!" Four said.

YandereTsun

Momo laughed softly. "Hugh actually pinpointed how he did it in his statement, Four," she said. "Or do you need Time to think about it?"

SFXis

Four looked confused. "Huh...? I-I don't quite get it..."

YandereTsun

"Hehe... I guess it could be a little unbelievable," Momo said with a smile.

Paradox.XXIV

"Yes it would..." The rabbit added shortly after. "But I am not giving out all my tricks, just know that I had seen you in there, and that at least you are safe with us now." Hugh said with a smile again.

SFXis

"I see, thank you," Four smiled. "I heard we're heading to Vile Root? T-this is the first time I got out of Macaria... and my bros don't even know!"

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh chuckled some more. "If my family knew how far I had gone... !"

YandereTsun

"Oohhh! How many brothers do you have?" Momo asked, enthusiastically. "I only have one brother."

SFXis

"Umm... I have 4 brothers... and I'm the fourth child! I guess that's why my name is... weird," Four laughed a little. "I bet they would be looking... I hope they won't worry too much and push theirselves too much... especially my grandparents..." he said, a little worried.

Paradox.XXIV

"I have too many brothers and sisters !" Hugh started to laugh cheerfully, counting on his fingers without stopping.

YandereTsun

"Woahh... that's a lot of bunnies..." Momo commented.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh stopped counting after three or four paws, and smiled at both the humans in front of him. "Yeah, kinda.. Hehe... Lots of people to watch after... Especially when you are the oldest." The rabbit said, still smiling. His gaze drifted away to the sea behind the boat, and he instinctively went in his pocket to feel the warm ring that was still in there.

SFXis

"T-that's pretty cool, Hugh... um, h-how can you take care of ALL of them?" Four asked.

Paradox.XXIV

"Looooots of patience... And putting them in different rooms so they can't run around screaming!" Hugh told, remembering good times.

YandereTsun

Momo laughed a little, but she wondered where the others were.

SFXis

"I see..." Four said. "I-I-I hope I could be of any help here as possible... I-I hope I wouldn't be a bother..."

YandereTsun

"You're not a bother, Four! It's great to make friends every once in a while..." Momo looked around. "I just noticed... has Mira and Dark return?"

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh got back to look at Momo. "Erm.. No... Not yet..." His ears folded on his back.

Donotdiddlekids

Max eventually notices the nudging, and wakes up, immediately breathing heavily afterwards from not only the surprise, but also from nearly drowning.
After a bit, he looks at Alexis. "Man, almost dying isn't fun...", he said.

Bed head zed

Falaos lays on a bed downstairs, he begins to fall asleep.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

The boat was almost to the docks that the group wanted to land at, and could do so in about one minute. There was a road going due north from the completely empty wooden piers. In the distance there was a forest. Close by the docks there were some large rocks that could not have gotten in the formation they were in on their own. The rocks appeared to be a landmark. Large birds flew overhead.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam awoke from his half-dream, sensing the presence of the earth nearby.

Bed head zed

Falaos begins dreaming.
He sees an anthro fox standing in an open field.

Donotdiddlekids

Max stood up.
"Where's Christa?", he asked.
"Above deck.", Alexis replied.
The two soon made their way to the top.

Bed head zed

Christa is still staring into the water.

TechnoXenoHolic

Elsewhere nearby, at the head of the Vile Root docks, strode a young dragon anthro. He hunched his posture and spread his wings ever so slightly for balance as he stepped out onto the wooden dock. Against his chest he clutched a satchel of scrolls, books, and miscellaneous illuminator's supplies. Another satchel of belongings rode on his left hip. His eyes darted from side to side as he tried to keep watch on everything around him all at once, and his tail lashed slowly behind him.
The dragon anthro—Will'O'Wisp Haze—paused for a moment to watch the elementals' ship approach, peering at it closely. He sighed a little to himself when he didn't recognize it, then shuffled off to the side of the dock to keep out of the way.

Donotdiddlekids

Max walks over to Christa.
"Hey.", he says. "I'm... uhh... not dead by the worst way to die, A.K.A, drowning."

Bed head zed

"Phew... I was worried..." Christa stops staring at the water and looks at Max.
Falaos approaches the anthro. "Uhhhh... Are you here to... Teach me?"
Clare goes up to the dock and lands the boat, she leaves the bridge. "We're here."

Donotdiddlekids

"Yeah, it certainly wasn't fun for me, either.", Max said.

Bed head zed

Clare walks over to Max and Christa. "Have you seen Falaos?" She asked. "He went downstairs." Christa replied.
The anthro says nothing "Uh... Maybe... You are..." Falaos pauses. "Maybe..."
"WAKE UP!" Falaos is rudely awakened by Clare. "What's wrong?!" Falaos asked. "We're at Vile Root."

Donotdiddlekids

Max looks over the edge of the boat.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh had already hopped onto the docks, gasping as he saw the young dragon close to the boat. "My, how incredible! If I had known I would have met three dragons in such little time~!" The rabbit smiled and said out loud.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp, upon hearing Hugh's exclamation, ducked his head and sidled about a foot further away from the group. He tucked his wings in tighter and curled his tail around his ankles in the hopes of being somewhat less conspicuous.
So many new and unfamiliar people were a frightening thing to be met with. He wished they would all just move on and leave him be so he could wait for the ferry away from here in silence.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

As the group filed off of the ship, a low growl began to arise from behind the large landmark rocks. The growl was accompanied by a shrill shriek. It was quiet at first, but grew louder very quickly. Soon, a bear-like dark monster rose up from the shadows. It was about twice the size of any normal bear, and about four times as ferocious.
The creature scanned the group of elementals, and upon not seeing its desired prey, it let out a horrifying screech and roar akin to that of a lion mixed with a pterodactyl. In its rage it picked up and hurled one of the large rocks blindly at the group. It hit Rezel off the docks, and into the river, crushing him beneath its weight while the water drowned him.
This hadn't sated the monster though, and it picked up another. This one it threw at Jitx. On its way there, it grazed Hugh, leaving several scrapes and cuts, but no serious damage. When the boulder collided with Jitx, it threw him into the river too. But it wasn't the crushing weight or the water that killed him. There was a sharp outjut on the rock that just managed to pierce the dragon anthro's heart.
The monster let out another terrifying screech, got down on all fours, and charged at the group, growling the entire time.

TechnoXenoHolic

The initial growling was enough to really unnerve Wisp, so when the monstrous bear appeared he immediately made a choked-off, fearful sound and startled backwards with a flare of his wings. He fell into the water and out of the monster's sights, losing the satchel he had carried against his chest in the process.
Wisp quickly righted himself, tucked in his wings again, and sunk lower enough to swim backwards, further away. But he simply had to keep an eye on what was happening, so he left the top of his head above water and watched in horror as the elementals were struck down, feeling a particularly sharp jolt of fear when his fellow dragon anthro went down so easily.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh, initially paralyzed by the monster's screech, didn't even have the time to see it coming or dodge, that the rock was already deep in the river. Hugh's vision blurred, blood and adrenalin suddenly flushing in his entire body from the intense pain he felt in his left arm. He fell on his back, shrieking and holding his arm.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam reacted immediatly, summoning a similarily sized Golem and sending it at the bear monster.

Donotdiddlekids

Max drew his sword, a blue glow starting to form around his arms.
He stood ready to engage the beast.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh quickly got up, still holding his limp left arm. He stood with the other Elementals, and spoke to Liam. "We've seen worse, but let's be careful with this one..."

Toreadorfreddy

"Alright," Liam said as he drew his sword, guessing that his Golem would probably be destroyed.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

The shadow bear attacked the earth golem, grappling it in its claws. Being designed to hurl massive rocks, it easily picked its adversary up, and threw it aside. It stood still and growled at the group, particularly eying Max.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet come out from the side."Hello?"

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh quickly looked in Max's direction, guessing the monster's next move. "Out the way, Max!" He shouted at the Force bearer.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I wonder if they've gotten to vile root yet." Dark says

Skaitleen03

Scalet walk in and tilts her head in a questioning way.

Donotdiddlekids

Max sidesteps a few times, meaning to get out of the way.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam sensed his surroundings, and felt what appeared to be a large vein of crystal beneath him. He began bringing him up, hoping to put what he had learned to the test.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh turned to Max again. "He's going to charge at you at the first occasion, so be careful."

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

The monster whipped its head in the direction of its loudest enemy, who just so happened to be Hugh. It was still choosing its target, so Hugh wasn't necessarily going to get pummeled.

Donotdiddlekids

Max turned towards Hugh.
"Looks like he's coming back after you!", Max replied.

Toreadorfreddy

A spire of quartz emerged between the shadow bear and the group. Liam concentrated, changing the quartz's clarity and structure, making it into a prism. It caught the sunlight, focusing it into a brilliant beam aimed at the shadow bear.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

The bear monster made a shrill noise similar to a whining dog, and ran away. It sank into nothingness after some distance of running.
Elsewhere, the bear would arise again, and in a fit of rage, it would kill off the many elemental companions that had fallen behind the rest of the group.

Donotdiddlekids

Max' s glow went away, and he sheathed his sword.
"That... was surprisingly easy.", he said.

TechnoXenoHolic

After the commotion was over, Wisp got his feet under him and made for the bank. He looked around for his satchel as he went, and grabbed it out of the water with a sigh.
Wisp slung the satchel over his right shoulder and glanced back at the elementals on the dock. One of them is wounded, he thought, and his wings shuffled. He hesitated, then stepped back up onto the dock, still dripping water everywhere.
"Excuse me," he called quietly, and winced at a crack in his voice. He curled his tail around his ankle and tried again, more audibly this time. "Excuse me, mister rabbit? You're hurt. I'm a—er, I can help."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh glanced at the bear running away, with a soft sigh of content, before turning at the shy voice calling him Mister Rabbit. Although the move was quite soft, Hugh winced at the sudden pain in his shoulder, and squeaked at the sight of the tall dragon standing close to him. He took a shy step backwards, judging his size, and looked down at his own paws and left shoulder, all bruised from the dodged impact with the boulder.
Hugh looked back at the dragon and smiled softly, his ears folding on his back. "Oh... I'm... hehe... Quite alright, I wouldn't dare to use of your precious time and help some careless rabbit..." He said, trying to keep a smile on his face. "I've guessed you were waiting for something... And I shouldn't hold you~"

Donotdiddlekids

"Aw, come on, let him help you, Hugh.", Max said, smiling.

TechnoXenoHolic

Noticing Hugh's uneasiness, Wisp tried to shrink himself a little by folding in his wings and hunching his posture.
"It's really fine," he said, somehow both hesitant and insistent. "I mean... I was waiting, but... the ferry won't be here for a while anyway, and your arm could use a sling."

Paradox.XXIV

"I don't need~" Hugh got cut off by another struck of pain in his shoulder and lost his smile. "Mff... M.. Maybe I could use one, after all..." The rabbit said, stepping closer to the anthro dragon and presenting himself. "My name is Hugh, so this is... out of the way..."
Hugh chuckle softly and took off his vest, throwing it on his right arm.

Donotdiddlekids

Max turned to Wisp then.
"Well, that's nice of you, by the way.", he said.

TechnoXenoHolic

"I'm Will'O'Wisp," the dragon replied to Hugh, trying to wipe his hands dry on his pants. "But you can call me Wisp. It's nice to meet you, Hugh." Then he looked to Max and smiled weakly. "Thank you."
Wisp unzipped the satchel on his hip and drew out another leather bag from within it. From this bag he took a roll of wide bandage that had been saved from getting so drenched by the leather around it, and tore a long strip of it off. Then he gently wrapped Hugh's arm up into a sling, nice and snug to keep it from moving.
"There," he said, tying the knot at Hugh's shoulder and smiling at him. The expression was a bit forced. "That should be better."

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira's ring pulsed its slight glow, as though asking to be put on. Mira herself obviously didn't know that there was an opportunity for Dark to get healed, but the ring did.

Paradox.XXIV

"That really is much better !" Hugh was rather close to the dragon yet he didn't really mind, and kept smiling the whole time. "My, thank you very kindly, Wisp, if I may call you Wisp !" The rabbit said, smiling happily again.
Hugh's ring pulsed in Hugh's vest pocket, but he couldn't feel it right now as he had it taken off. But right after thanking the dragon, the rabbit took off his locket from his pocket, which made the ring almost fall on the dirty ground. He thankfully caught it before it fell, and looked at it glowing. "Oh my~!" He said out loud.

Donotdiddlekids

Max walked a bit closer to Wisp.
"I'm... I'm Max, nice to meet you.", Max said, holding out his hand to shake.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

The ring continued to pulse, growing a bit brighter with each wave of light, giving the request a sense of urgency.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp murmured a 'you're welcome' to Hugh, then made as though to back away. He was distracted by Hugh dropping the ring, so when Max spoke up, Wisp startled with a bit of a yelp.
"Uh huh," he said, a bit breathlessly, and hugged his arms around himself, silently rejecting the handshake.

Donotdiddlekids

Max slowly lowered his hand, feeling a bit awkward.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh simply put the ring back on his finger, feeling the mesmerizing glow ask him to do so.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira and Dark appeared the instant the ring was on, the blood already starting to flow again from Dark's leg.
"Wh-" Mira looked around, confused. "Hugh what happened!? Where's Emerald? Dark still needs medical attention you know! He's BLEEDING!"

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark tries covering the wound with his pants leg
"Yeah, and putting that on probably wasn't the best idea considering we are at a dock, where people can see us." Dark says

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh blinked a few times, completely absent. He was truly mesmerized by the ring as he glanced at Mira and Dark with a bit of an empty gaze.

Bed head zed

Clare and Falaos ran onto the docks. "What the hell were those hellish screams?!" Asked Clare.

TechnoXenoHolic

Upon Clare and Falaos' noisy arrival, Wisp managed to snap himself out of his shock at seeing two people appear from literally nowhere. He spluttered a bit, then honed in on Dark's bleeding leg and scrambled to kneel beside him.
"Let me look at that," he urged quietly, fumbling an antiseptic from his hip satchel and looking earnestly at Dark. "I'm a medic—sort of. I can get it bound up and stop the bleeding."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I do'nt care who you are, if you can stop my leg from bleeding in any way that doesn't involve it bleeding out, I would be super thankful." Dark says

TechnoXenoHolic

"Yeah," Wisp confirmed. "Yeah, I can do that. Sorry, this'll sting..."
The dragon anthro began making quick work of patching up Dark's leg, first applying the antiseptic and then tightly banadaging it to put the pressure on so the bleeding should stop soon.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark's kill pain activated, making the supposed sting not be felt.
"Ah, it's fine. I wouldn't have cut the leg off in the first place if I could'nt take pain." Dark says jokingly.

Bed head zed

Clare stares at Dark. "Well, I guess those horrible screams were nothing... You all seem pretty calm..."

Donotdiddlekids

Max looked at how Dark and Mira arrived out of nowhere.
"Woah, okay, I guess you're just here, now.", he says.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira silently watched as the rose dragon anthro patched Dark up. She tried to look away because of the excessive amount of blood, but when she did, only found herself looking in the river, where there was a lot more coming from the rock Jitx was under, so she looked back at Dark.

Bed head zed

"So... What just happened?" Christa asked Max, confused.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Is it a coincidence that the bear killed them with rocks of all things rather than its claws..... or is it just me??" Sub thought, he was watching the short battle the whole time "I'm probably just thinking too much..."

Bed head zed

Falaos looks into the water and sees Jitx's blood. "Ouch..." He quickly looks away.

Donotdiddlekids

Max turned to Christa.
"There was this bear like thing...but it's gone now.", he replied.

Bed head zed

"That thing didn't look or sound like a bear... But I'll go with that to ease my mind..."

Donotdiddlekids

Max shook his head, still confused about the creature.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"We should probably get to Vile root really quickly so we don't get more bear attacks." Sub said as he gets ready to get off the ship.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet walked to Faloas.

Bed head zed

Falaos looks at Scarlet. "Ah! A... Wolf?" Falaos stares at Scarlet.

Skaitleen03

"H-Hello?"

Skaitleen03

"I want to be your companion"

Donotdiddlekids

Max looked into the water, seeing Jitx' s blood in there.
"Oh, that didn't end well...", he said to himself.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh suddenly felt a sharp needle of pain struck through his chest, and fell on his knees. He was panting, trying to recover from what he had just seen.
-~-o-~-
A few seconds earlier, Hugh's vision was one of a cat's. She was playing in the deepest parts of the Hideston's forest, with a few other animals. How sweet of Pandora, always being so sweet... She apparently had felt tired, so she laid down alone for a rest.
She didn't even had the time to open her eyes as the boulder fell off the sky in her direction. Hopefully, the pain in her Master's chest would have been more intense than her own death.
-~-o-~-
Hugh managed to look up, tightly holding his locket in his paw. A tear rolled down his cheek as he silently promised himself to get rid of these dark beings that had gone freely in these lands for too long now...

YandereTsun

Momo walked around, looking for the others' places.

SFXis

Four was following Momo. "Uu-umm... Miss Momo?"

YandereTsun

Momo looked at Four. "Hm? Oh, Four. No need for the honorific 'miss'! What is it?" She asked with a smile.

SFXis

"N-no! I insist to call you Miss Momo! Y-you're His Excellence's daughter..." Four said, stuttering. "I-I just wanted someone to talk to... everyone seems bothered and I don't want to... add up their problems..."

YandereTsun

"You don't add up problems, Four... it's just... some of our friends... met the same fate as a family of mine..." Momo said, sadly.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp kept his head down through the conversations going on around him, listening and gancing up at each speaker only momentarily. He finished wrapping Dark's leg and sat back.
"You should have someone change those bandages every few hours," he told Dark. "If you're going to Vile Root, though, it might be a problem. The hospital is full up with people from an accident that happened a couple days ago."

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira looked up at Wisp. "Hey who're you anyways? And where are you going that you would run into us like this. Seems pretty convenient that just as our-" She cut herself off and stared at the anthro dragon for a moment, realization dawning on her. "Oh God. Uh... How important is it that you get to where you're going?"

Skaitleen03

Scarlet is nudging her head at Faloas' Leg trying to get attetion.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp stared back at Mira, baffled by the sudden change in direction. "I, er... it's not, really?" he said weakly. "I was going to head over on the ferry to find more work—I'm, er, a wandering illuminator. Will'O'Wisp Haze. You probably haven't heard of me. I mostly just do restorations..."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh silently got up, and approached Wisp. "Any help will be welcome... Especially if they can save lives like you did." The rabbit said, rubbing his cheek with his moveable paw, and looked back at Mira. "This is Wisp, apparently good healer, too" Hugh explained at the same time as the dragon, moving his bandaged left arm for Mira to see.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"I don't need to have heard of you to know exactly who you are," Mira responded with a smile, "Say... How about I invite you on a little adventure? Do you think it sounds fun to travel with a bunch of people who can do magic things like..." She glanced at the large pillar of crystal Liam had made. "Make... Huge crystals come out of the ground just by thinking at them?"

Are You Freddy For Ready

"You're a bit late with introducing us, Hugh. He's already stated his name and showed his skill with healing peoples wounds." Dark says, gesturing to the bandages on his leg

Paradox.XXIV

"O-Oh, really?..." Hugh said, blinking as he saw Dark speaking. "I... I'm sorry... I must have been a bit off..." He finished with a sigh, looking away.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp hesitated, glancing at the crystal spire and the group of people around him.
"I... I don't know," he said, looking uncertain and shy. "I can't do anything like that. I can't even fly too well. I just bandage people and fix up the pretty designs on old parchment."

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira looked intently at Wisp, and continued speaking very clearly and slowly. "You can. You just don't know it yet." She glanced back at the river. Jitx's blood was mostly washed away by now, but still was visible. "Tell me, what's your family tree look like?"

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh simply took a few steps away, and listened to the conversation, although a bit absent.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp goggled at Mira, utterly baffled. "Like a normal family tree, as far as I know," he said. "Why? What do you mean I can do magic? I'm no mage like you all are."

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"We're not mages. We're elementals. But that's besides the point. Do you have any relation to the Moonseers?" Mira asked, leaning eagerly into the conversation more.

TechnoXenoHolic

"I think one of the family reunions we went to when I was younger was at the Moonseers'," Wisp said falteringly. "But... I can't be an elemental. I'm not... I'm not a great warrior at all."

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira laughed a little. "And you think I am? I'm barely into adulthood and I lived on a farm until a couple of weeks ago. But I'm an elemental. Specifically one who knows stuff. And I'm telling you that you've got to be one. Especially if you're related to the Moonseers. You probably haven't gotten your powers quite yet though, seeing as... The last one just..." She looked over into the water and didn't complete her sentence. "That was Jitx Moonseer."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"You don't have to be a warrior to be an elemental. Just look at Hugh, he hardly seems the fighting type yet he can control, uh, time." Dark says

TechnoXenoHolic

"Oh," Wisp said dully. "I..."
The dragon anthro heaved a sigh and shook his head. "I'm sorry. Were you friends?"

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh was too absorbed to hear what Dark said but reacted at Wisp's sentence. "Yes, he was." he said coldly.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Eh, he wasn't the nicest person. He had tried to kill me once. But you know what they say, don't speak ill of the dead." Dark says

Donotdiddlekids

Max was silent this entire time, just kinda blanked out.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp shifted in place so he could hug his knees against his chest. "I don't know if I'm cut out for this sort of stuff," he said, and looked at Mira unsurely. "You said you... know things. Are you really sure I'm an elemental? It seems so... unlikely."

Bed head zed

Falaos gently pets Scarlet. "First a bird, then a wolf pup, now a fully grown wolf! Where are all these animals coming from?" He asked, not expecting an answer from anyone.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Positive," Mira replied. "Well at least ninety-nine percent positive. But don't worry. I guess that monster just took us by surprise. We'll be ready for it if it ever attacks again."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Plus they were two people down due to my leg and the need for Mira to stop me from bleeding to death. That reminds me, thank you Mira for helping with that." Dark says
"Oh, and many thanks to you as well, Wisp" Dark says

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira nodded in recognition, and quickly said, "Welcome." Then she turned to Wisp. "Besides, we could really use the help of a skilled medic like you. And I'm sure Sub wouldn't mind paying you for your efforts. I think he can still m- Never mind that. We do have a lot to offer to you, and you've got a lot to offer us."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I can pay if Sub can't." Dark says.

"Well, I'm gonna go check this place out." Clare begins walking towards Vile Root.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh shook the emotion off his face and turned to face Wisp, but remained a few meters away from him for his comfort. "We would really appreciate your help, indeed. I have a nice... feeling about you joining us." he added with a soft smile, as soft as he could to put the dragon at ease.

"Plus, think about it. If you do end up being an elemental, wouldn't you want to find out around other elementals rather then when treating a patient? Depending on the element you have, you could potentially end up doing a lot of harm to said patient." Dark says

"I can still pay for it, but not in change." Sub said as he overheard the conversation, he didn't turn to look at them.

Wisp stayed quiet and listened for a moment, just taking in faces, voices, and names. None of them seemed too untrustworthy, but he resolved to keep his eyes and ears open around them all the same.
"Fine, fine, I'll come along," he mumbled, shuffling his wings. They did have a point, he thought. "And you know, you don't really have to pay me. Medicine isn't my paying job anyway. Just something I know how to do, is all."

Paradox.XXIV

"Good !" Hugh said enthusiastically. He kinda wanted to make a friendly move for the dragon, but simply smiled at him. He then let out a light gasp, and checked his locket, before stepping away from the group, to sat nearby, staring at the dial with absent eyes.
He would be resting for a while, meditating in silence.

Max was still blanked out, lost in a completely different world, so to speak.

Wisp put away his things and got back to his feet, shaing some of the water off his wings. "So... where are you going, anyway?" he asked, in the hopes that wherever it was, he would be able to get dry either on the way or when they got there.

"Vile Root." Dark says, still sitting on the ground.

Falaos looks at Clare. "Erm, maybe we should wait until we can travel as a group? We don't know what could be there." Clare sighs. "Fine." She returns to the docks.

Wisp nodded. "I thought so," he said, smiling a little at Dark. "But where in Vile Root?"

"That I do not know. We've really just been going to towns around Entherstia and have the occasional battle with a group who hate us or a monster that wants to eat us." Dark says

Donotdiddlekids

Max snaps out of his trance, and stands next to Christa.
Alexis is behind the both at a subtle distance.

Christa is staring off.

Max pulls out his father's journal, and starts reading a random page.
