Kya


Kya nodded as the woman appeared again, explaining that dark creatures of shadow were about to surround the campsite. Kya bit her lip in anguish. With two of the strongest, Ancel and Cassidy down, this would be challenging. Kya herself didn't know whether or not she was up to it. She had spent most of the day running. She didn't know if she could push herself any harder.

As Ruya finished speaking, she took note of the last thing she said, "...You are insinuating that the two are the same enemy-- that the men in fort are sided with our shadowy attackers...?" Kya scratched the back of her head in thought. There could have been a possibility that the shadow creatures and the men had no affiliation.
".... I may be crazy, but perhaps the men at the fort strategically placed the wall in a place with attackers, that way nobody would bother to wonder into the woods in the first place. Would that make sense?" More thoughts poured out of Kya's head as she spoke, "I mean if they followed Ancel, who's a human, and then followed you, maybe they aren't on any side. If what you said is correct, that if we can capture these things, maybe we won't even have to fight as much as we think we need to. Maybe we can kill two birds in one stone..."

She looked at the Ancel illusion next to her. She didn't know who he was, but she spoke to him anyway.
"We would need something bright, and then we would need something to trap them with...I would say Cassidy, but she's knocked out..."

Lust Asami Curtis


Lust lifted the bandages for a instant then covered them again. The scent of blood was heavy on the air. She looked at the lass who was now awake her face pale as she looked at the young male who wounded.

Cassidy Pyro SaintClaire


Cassidy had awoken with a start at the scent of blood. She had jumped up from her cot and it was then that she saw Ancel. Her face drained of it's color as she slowly stood up and walked to his side she took lust's hand and lifted them for a moment to see the wounds and the damage they inflicted and then recoiled and flinched away at the sight of them. The female then would put her hands back over the wound. Cassidy's anguish turned to rage and her eyes glowed orange to reflect this. She took Ancel's hand and rested her forehead on on them. "I'll find who did this to you. I will find them Ancel...this I promise...And I'll see you when I get back." She said making him know she knew he would survive this ordeal and with that she removed a necklace from her neck. The necklace was silver chain with 2 dragons circling a green stone. It was cool to the touch but when around certain people it would warm up a bit and glow different colors, engraved on one side of the stone was 7 letters which spelled out one word 'Courage' and on the other side 4 letters were engraved that spelled out 'Hope', and then on another side. The dragons were crafted from cold, with ruby red eyes and they held great detail in there design, there mouths were closed and at the top of the crystal the dragons necks were resting on each others shoulders like a hug. She put the necklace around his neck and with that she turned and walked away. She saw Kya and then she saw another being who looked like a bunny...no that's not it. A kangaroo? Yeah that's the animal with Tink, and beside him--- She shook her head telling herself they had a good reason for this horrible display. "Whatever your planning I want in." She said clearing not in the mood. Her eyes continued to glow and swirl about in a mix of anger and pain. "Where is Destin?" She asks them.

The girl in yellow had brought up something intriguing. "...That is a curious thought." Ruya agreed. "...To mask themselves, they hide in a place filled with attackers. Attackers they know to be devastating." She tapped her chin. "...It's a double edged sword." She said, shaking her head. "...And I can see why they might do that. Those soldiers can be replenished often. There are very many off them...in Paradise."

...the technology for an invisible wall exists as well... as long as you're in Paradise. Ruya reminded herself. Which means this is an effort to extinguish the Freedom Fighters for sure. I don't know much about life out here, but at the very least my knowledge of inside should be of some help. Still... the invisible wall isn't used often enough that I know a way around it.

The girl in yellow was speaking again. "If what you said is correct, that if we can capture these things, maybe we won't even have to fight as much as we think we need to. Maybe we can kill two birds in one stone..." She looked at the man from before-- Ruya blinked in surprise.

"...He's better already...?" She muttered to herself. That is impossible. The man was bleeding out. That-- no. It must be a hallucination... or an illusion... I'm just tired. The girl was saying something that Ruya completely missed because she was busy being shocked. Ruya decided it was best to plow on as though she weren't hallucinating. She'd deal with the fact that she was apparently in the presence of an apparition.

"...Capturing them is a faint possibility at best." Ruya explained. "...But as long as the possibility exists, we ought to try. The issue here is the weakness..." She tipped her head. "...Sun-kissed things, things that have been blessed with fire, that might kill them. Capture, though..." Ruya frowned, her mind jumping to the task of creating a plan. She had a theory... Considering the way they'd attacked, those dark creatures most likely circled their victims. If there was one person who could evade the creatures enough... perhaps a ring of fire could "capture" the creatures. But it doesn't have to be fire. Ruya thought. Creatures of the night only fear light. So what we need is for someone to build the means to create light and position people in the woods with mirrors. With two of these means of creating light and about four mirrors... we could make a light perimeter that the creatures can't pass. And with that... we have captured one. That is, if these things are weak to light, I cannot be sure of this without a test. And if I do this, surely people will perish when I am wrong...

Suddenly her mind paused on how the girl had spoke of the dark creatures. Strange attackers...? "Considering that you speak as though they hadn't existed before... do you think their appearance is not... random? Perhaps... perhaps they appeared because of the current weather?" She motioned to the overcast sky. "...Do you think, perhaps, that the rainy overcast weather might have been cause for their appearance...?" That was bad. If that was the case, capturing them was of no consequence. Would the creature die in the sunlight? Would it resurrect when the weather was bad again? If these things can't be captured in a cage, then we'll have many, many enemies. They say the enemy of my enemy is my friend, but this is the first time I've ever been the person at the other end of that saying.

Before Ruya could get a response from the girl in yellow, a woman left a nearby tent and marched over to the group. "Whatever you're planning, I want in. Where is Destin?"

Ruya recalled her as the woman from before, the one who had come and gone in minutes, and frowned. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread, right? She thought. The woman was clearly in pain... angry, upset. There was no way they could use her right now. Ruya had learned that people who were ruled by their emotions were weak... she'd learned that the hard way. However, though Ruya had no patience for weakness, her mind reminded her of the current situation. They'd just gotten an injured man back... and now a woman was angry? So then it was possible that the woman was upset of the man before. Ruya felt her ears droop. Were they more than friends? No wonder the woman was upset. Perhaps it isn't weakness that pervades her, but sorrow? Ruya thought. But that emotional attachment is going to make her hard to control. The pieces in this game must operate as I'm thinking or I doubt we'll be able to capture these creatures. She observed the woman again, frowning. I understand she is strong willed... but that could be our downfall right now. I need someone who will listen to orders. In this state of mind, she is bound to stray. Then, Ruya caught herself. ...I am not the leader. I have no right assuming that this woman cannot help... She shook her head. "...Who is the leader?" She asked, finally. "...I need to talk to the Leader of the Freedom Fighters."

(OOC: I don't know where the Ancel illusion was created. Was it supposed to be Axe? I referred to the illusion as Ancel anyway, but... I'm not sure if that's right. I'll edit it after if I'm wrong.)

//Yea i have no idea either >< im just kinda going with it .-.


Cassidy Pyro SaintClaire


Cassidy took no heed of the kangaroo's words "Okay, Listen toots, Just because I'm angry doesn't mean I'm not capable of handling my self against opponents. And the way I see it you have only two options here: One, You let me go with you and do what my purpose on this land is. Or two: I go anyways and do what my purpose on this land is. So either way your stuck with me. Get used to it." She told her. It was true she was mad but her logic was flawed. Before every battle Cassidy had some reason to be pissed or hurt about. War is always a emotional time. Hell, She worked better under pressure. She was always calm under fire. It was just her way of doing things. Not to mention there was this little thing called: Self Control and if you had that you were good. She would have smacked the rabbit were it not a waste of time. She saw her actions and words as the greatest form of disrespect there was available. Assumption based attitudes were always a good way to piss her off. "You don't know me toots so don't assume you could even begin to understand me. I've fought in wars your grandpape fought in. I've watched good men die on a battle more times then I could count. Ive watched as armies trembled and fall to there knees at the very sight of me. I've watched good men be tortured and then burned alivejust because they knew me. And Ive seen armies crumble and die by my armies hands. I've watched as men died and armies fell. And-- " She turned away her eyes stopped glowing " Ive watched the man I love, explode into pieces before my very eyes." This was the first time she admitted her feelings for Destin to be love. She would pause a few moments then shake her head and look back at the girl "Pain and anger are nothing compared to that. Anger and pain are nothing compared to whats to come if we do not get this ordeal over and done with. Ive watched this world, watched it grow, watched it die. I think I know how to fight and how to calm down and put aside my emotions before a battle. But thanks for the thought." She said now calming down. No hint of anger or rage could be seen any longer obviously proving her point. "Now again, where is Destin and what is the plan?" She asked them, her tone back to normal.

((OOC: No, it should be an Axe illusion. Tink hasn't even met Ancel to begin thinking of making an illusion of him. I don't know how it changed either. Typo perhaps? The names are similar.))
Dodge Hanson
Dodge nodded and turned around in search of the bag. "Med Kit, Med Kit." He muttered as his eyes scanned the tent. Gotcha he whispered as he spotted and took the kit from beside the unconscious dame. As his fingers wrapped around the strap, he noticed the girl stir slightly. She'll be up soon he thought before hastily bringing the bag to Lust's side. As soon as it was beside her she went to work mending the boys injuries. Dodge watched over her shoulder as she worked diligently worked. While Lust worked on healing this man, Dodge began to wonder what this man had done to get injured so bad. It wasn't like anything he had ever encountered.
"What was that?" Dodge asked after hearing Lust whisper something.

Tinkerton Puck
The illusion stood there mostly apathetic as the rest of them discussed. He turned to someone when they were speaking but other than that he was motionless. Tink shifted uneasily. The real Axe would have said something by now, something to at least shift conversation. He tried to speak out several times but as soon as he made up his mind to speak, someone else would take the chance.
"Now again, where is Destin and what is the plan?" Cassidy said. Tink jumped at the chance to get Axe into the conversation.
"I believe I can help you. Axe, Leader of the freedom fighters." Axe said as he walked to them. Instinctively Axe was about to raise his hand for a handshake but Tink mentally slapped it down. "Axe doesn't do that." he scolded. Tink continued.
"Now if we could just come this way to my tent, we can come up with a plan." Quieter he added. "Away from prying eyes." Personally Tink didn't mistrust any of the freedom fighters but he knew that was probably something that concerned leaders.

(ooc- sorry! meant Axe aaaaggghhhh i have such a terrible brain... X'0
i will edit it after i write this....can you take the part with ancel out of your post? :/ uuuuughhhhh... i suck. Btw, this post might dissapoint some people, but i guess instead of later, i'm going to have to do this now...since it's the perfect oppurtunity...)

Kya


"Now again, where is Destin and what is the plan?" Cassidy said, calming down. From far away, Kya, an accomplished and boastful look on her face, shouted to Cassidy, Ruya, and illusion Axe. "THE PLAN IS THAT WE FIND DESTIN!!! First plan's been TAKEN CARE OF!!"
she said, triumphantly holding up a shiny blue crystal. This was the same crystal that was the key to her chamber.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What Kya was doing during Cassidy's rant to Ruya....


As soon as Cassidy raged her emotions out to the lady, Kya noticed something dark and peculiar near a campsite wall behind them. Black shadowy creatures were forming. Immediately, she knew they were the creatures the kagaroo-lady was talking about. They weren't too far behind; she knew that they were planning a secret attack when everyone was least expecting it. Kya wanted to let Cassidy know, but with all her thoughts pouring out into Ruya's face, she knew it wouldn't be much use getting the hot-headed woman's attention. She had to do this by herself.

Rushing over to the scene with a gust of wind, Kya blew herself to the spot where she could see the shadows. Thinking quickly, she pulled out the matchbox she received in her chamber, and hit one of the matches against the box. The monsters were starting to form from the shadows, and they gathered around her. With a deep breath, she put the lighted match on her mouth, and released it, blowing the fire into the creatures' faces. With her wind powers, blowing on the fire made it fly almost everywhere. (fire eating and breathing were tricks she had learned from the circus) She was sure the monsters had retreated, but in fact, they had quickly gathered allies, as the lady had said. Kya trembled in fear, and fell. She dropped her knapsack, and its contents fell across the ground. The creatures circled around her, and she closed her eyes tightly, knowing the end was nigh. However, for some coincidental and absolutely lucky reason, the dark clouds shifted their places, revealing partial sunset. Once the tiniest bit of sunshine struck the earth, the blue crystal on the ground levitated and glowed with an illuminating light. Instantly, the creatures around her were sucked into the crystal, like it was some high-powered vacuum. Once the darkness was gone, the rock fell back down to the ground, motionless.

Astonished, Kya crawled to the crystal, and curiously picked it up. This was the 'key' that had opened her chamber door. She took a careful look at the inscription, and in realization, her jaw dropped. She picked herself up, and twirled in pure joy, the wind blowing around her. She danced and strutted back to Ruya and Cassidy.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After illusion Axe's talk with the two, Kya strutted between them. "I ACTUALLY DID SOMETHING!!!" she exclaimed in pride. "They're all trapped in this stone. I never realized it, but this whole time, I was carrying a SUNLIGHT STONE!!! The funny thing is, I used to make these! Y'know, fifty years ago when everything wasn't so topsy turvy. It draws its powers from the sunlight! Back in the day, those nightmares were rare-o. I used to catch them with my friends! Kinda like a rat exterminator, only without the poison....Anyway, since the stones draw power from light, they sucked the dark nightmare creatures right up!" She tossed the rock up high and caught it in the palm of her hand. "This one's special because it has an inscription on it. Looky here! It says, 'chosen one of air and flight, may this tool grant you the power of light'! Pretty neat, huh? It's in Nekosian, a language i used to speak! It explains why this opened my chamber door. When i connected it with the other stone, it opened the door and let in the sunlight! I guess the nightmares kinda just repopulated in the wild when you-know-who took over the IDD..."

Kya balanced the stone on top of Ruya's head, her way of saying 'thank-you' to people. "Now that those monsters are taken care of, we can plan other things! I suggest we don't take out those men at the wall until early morning, just seconds before sunrise. That way, the nightmares will be at full power in the dark, and then, when they try to attack us, the sun will pop out, and they'll be trapped. So now that we have time to get ourselves together," Kya pointed sharply at Cassidy, "You go find Destin and rest up, young lady! We're gonna need you in battle, just in case!!" then she pointed to Ruya, "make sure everyone in this camp is ready to fight tonight! Everyone needs to be well rested! Also, i gave you the stone, so you know what to do if the nightmares come back. I doubt they will, but just in case!" then she pointed to illusion Axe with a cheesy smile, "and you! i don't know who you are!! Well, you've been standing here the whole time, so spread the word! THE FREEDOM FIGHTERS SHALL HAVE VICTORY!!!" She then put one elbow on Ruya's shoulder, and the other on Cassidy's. "Hate to tell anyone's job around here, but you two tough girlies better get your heads in the game! I JUST DID SOMETHING RIGHT!!!" she squealed with excitement. "Now if you'll excuse me, i'm gonna go see how my friend is doin! You two can join me if you like!" and with that, she skipped off to Ancel's tent.

// XD nice. I will and also i just remembered....conner hasnt made a appearance in a awhile. ill come up with something later lol //

Lust Asami Curtis


Lust took the bag quickly and opened a potions putting it up the boys lips and making him drunk it he would fall asleep at this point and she began to work. She poured the alcohol on the wound sterilizing it and then she burned the needle over a burning candle and threaded the thick string onto the sewing needle. She began sewing the wound pinching the skin together as she carefully cross stitched the wounds closed. The string didn't break at least so this was a good sign. With that she relaxed a little as she moved to the second gash. "There called 'Nightmares' there sick beings created in darkness and evil. They were once few in numbers but over the last 50 years they have doubled. They feed off fear and torture there victims until they finally swoop in and use there sharp claws to rip open there flesh and Feast on them. Ive seen multiple cases in my time. This lads lucky to be alive." She spoke. She was now moving to the third gash and within 45 minutes it was sewn shut. She wiped the sweat off her face and then poured the alcohol over the stitched wounds. With that she bandaged them up and rested against the table.

Cassidy Pyro SaintClaire


Cassidy turned to Kya about to say something but then she would laugh and smile hearing the remainder of her words. She kept watching as Kya smile and jump up and down in glee and pride and began spouting orders which caused her to laugh more. It caused her to smile. There little group of four one by one gained her respect. The kangaroo lady was next or not. Either way Kya was right. They had a job to do. She stood straight her face wiped off emotion her arms at her sides and her feet together. "Yes commander." She said in army tone as she saluted her. It was not meant as a joking manner. No. Cassidy never saluted to anyone but Destin. It was a thing she did only to those she thought the best of the best. She was telling Kya she had gained more then her respect on this day. She earned her trust and admiration. With that she walked away to find Destin. It was time to speak how she felt. Time to lay everything she had been hiding out on the line.

The broken Chosen of Water sat by himself high above a tree. Memories after memories flashed and flashed through his eyes, a major surge of information threatening to fry his brain into a crispy walnut. He winced and cradled his head tightly around his hands, panting as he tried to lessen the pain. Memories of the war, every single detail, as if he had looked at the battle from above, in the position of the gods. But that wasn't what hurt him, it was new memories that flooded through his head. The actual vision of his explosion was one of them... He shouldn't have been alive!

"I..." he muttered, looking at his shaking hands before another rake of pain shot his head. Several garbled memories clashed together in his head, causing it to hurt like crazy.

But through that garbled memories... he knew something. He didn't come back by natural means... He was supposed to be dead, and he should've been dead. He knew the incredibly amount of pain he experienced before he returned to life, although he did not know who brought him back to life. He also knew that someone else suffered for his sake. But the memories were still fuzzy, so who, he did not know.

"...I know." he whispered. He knew why he couldn't use his previous abilities to the fullest and why he couldn't feel... his body and mind returned... but his soul never did. And he knew his duty.

"'Chosen of Water That Heals...'" he quoted a voice he heard in his memories. He was the Chosen of Water... because the water would be able to heal him... but so far, after 50 years... there was no healing done.

Cassidy Pyro SaintClaire


Cassidy walked through the camp trying to find Destin. She circled it over and over until she saw him. She smiled and began walking over to him. She then saw as she moved closer he was clutching his head his face contorted in agony and deep thoughts. The smile faded as her walk shifted into a sprint. "Destin!" She called out. She finally got to him. She kneeled down lifting his head with her hands so he was forced to look her in the eyes as she examined his face her heart sunk. He knew. She didnt know how she knew he knew or how he knew. But she knew he did. She looked into his eyes. "You remember.." She stated it was not a question. There was no question in her mind. He knew. She sat next to him. Had he figured it out? Her sacrifice. Would he be angry. Or sad. What would be the next corse of action. Suddenly all these questions filled her mind and it made her recoil in fear of the inevitable. But he had a right to know. He needed to know. "I'll tell you everything. But before I do. I need you to know. Destin I love you. I know it's cliche to admit this before a battle. It's corny and not our style. But I want you to know this. You need to know this." She smiled. It was a sad smile one that didnt reach her eyes. She took of a necklace it held a bullet on it and 2 dragons similar to the necklace she gave Ancel but the stone was purple. And it was engraved with Love and Life. Thats what Destin was to her. He was her love and her life. Another difference was instead of the necks being intertwined in a hug. There snouts were connected in a kiss.

Kya


Sunset was starting to turn into night, and the air-chosen one decided to check on her hospitalized friend. Kya took a deep breath, hoping that Ancel wasn't dead, and slowly peeked into the tent. Lust was there, working her medical magic on Ancel's chest. She breathed a sigh of relief. If she was still working on him, he wasn't dead yet. Would he be alright for the battle in the morning? She'd have to wait and see. If not, there would probably be more running in the future.

As Lust rested on the table, Kya entered, and looked down upon the bandaged earth-choosen one. Around his neck was a glowing necklace that spelled out 'hope' and on the other side, 'courage'. With further inspection, Kya realized it was one of Cassidy's necklaces. She must have placed it around his neck before she went off to see her and Ruya. She touched the glowing gemstone and sighed. It was her who should be giving Ancel gifts, not Cassidy. Kya was the one who almost got Ancel murdered in the first place. She was expecting him to be very angry at her.

She turned her head to Lust, a worried look in her eyes. "Is he going to be okay?" she asked. "We're going to travel early in the morning, do you think he will be alright then?"

Titan


A big centaur walked through the camp, his teal stripes shining through the last remaining bits of sunset. He was helping the others light the torches around the campsite, when he saw his friend, Artaxes Cleave, standing there unoccupied. With the torch in his hand, Titan trotted over to his friend. Little did he know that his trusted leader and friend was merely an illusion, and was really being questioned at one of Getsus's prisons. Little did he know that he was the last original member remaining in the camp. The rest had been killed, captured, or lost in action.

"So, i guess that girl's upstaged you, eh Axe?" he said in his booming voice, a playful smirk across his face. "She just kind of told you what to do. I would say that was very rude of her, but her plan was rather smart, so i have to give her SOME credit."
Titan looked upon the torch in his hand. The fire reminded him of the flames he used to craft swords, spears, and axes. He found the fire spiritual. Fire could be used in good, bad, or the inbetween. It was never just one side.
"I might as well cook tonight, Axe, apparently rumor has it that Lust's been working on someone in her tent. Don't think she wants to cook after all she's been through."

"So, the choosen ones are finally here, huh?" he said, crossing his arms. "Finally. I think i actually recognize them all. The two men like somewhat familiar, the warrior woman i think was with me in the army, and i believe the yellow one was a dreamcatcher along with the nekos. Kya.......Anderson? I think that's her name. I don't know if...."
Titan stopped in mid-sentence by the sight of the blue gem Kya had from before lying on the ground, unguarded. He bent over, picked it up, and shook his head to Axe. "Whoever has this should take much better care of it." he said, holding it in his other hand.

"Destin!" he heard Cassidy calling to him. Destin felt someone lifting his head and came face to face with Cassidy. She was looking into his eyes. "You remember.."

Remember? Well...Destin only had a few new memories, not everything was clear to him.

"I'll tell you everything. But before I do. I need you to know. Destin I love you. I know it's cliche to admit this before a battle. It's corny and not our style. But I want you to know this. You need to know this." she smiled sadly. She took of a necklace it held a bullet on it and 2 dragons with purple stone. Engraved on it was Love and Life and the dragon's snouts were connected in a kiss. Destin admired the necklace before pulling out his own. A necklace made from Cassidy's tears.

A small hint of life seemed to glow in Destin's dead eyes, but it was rather faint. He leaned over to plant a kiss on Cassidy's forehead before he touched his forehead against hers, closing his eyes and giving a content sigh. The necklace in his hands slowly changed form to imitate an ice made version of Cassidy's necklace.

"Love and Life..." he murmured, "...I'd give my life to save you. I want you to know that."

Lust Asami Curtis


Lust looked at Kya seeing the pain and grief in her eyes she walked to her. "He will need rest tomorrow is a bit to soon even for my alchemy and potions. But I will do my best to have him in top condition so he can at least travel." She looked at her and sighed. "Do not blame yourself Kya Anderson Of Air. You could not be expected to have known the outcome of this situation. He seems at peace with this situation. In the end he protected a pretty girl from a monster after all." She smiles and puts some of her hair behind her ear in a motherly fashion. "I saw you looking at the dragon necklace. 'Hope and Courage'..seems to have meaning behind it..Would you like me to help you fashion a gift for him too?" She asks her.



Cassidy Pyro SaintClaire


Cassidy smiled leaning her head against his forehead she was content as well.
"Love and Life..." he murmured, "...I'd give my life to save you. I want you to know that." She opened her eyes and smiled it was of corse a more sad smile. Pathetic smile really. "Cliche isn't our style." She half jokes but her voice cracked and she kissed his lips. She looked into his eyes her hand caressing his cheek. "And besides you cant save the girl who saved you." She looked into his eyes for a few more minutes silently before she went on. "When you died on the battle field. I was in ruins. Angered and loosing my mind with grief and rage. I no longer felt I should live on. I killed not only you but our men too. I was to trusting of our recruits and I let my guard down. I fell into there trap led you all to your deaths because I became to weak to decipher my real soldiers from a undercover spy for Getsus army. And I took his word for where the enemy was located. It was my fault and I knew it. So I lived my life in battle. I went to the people who killed you and one by one I took them down. There screams of agony would pierce through the night and there blood would stain my pathway. I lost myself in my need for revenge...and then they found me. Alone so much hatred in my heart and the need for revenge still heavy on my mind. They looked at me and told me I was needed to save this world. I laughed at them. I was still so angry at the world. But they found my journal and they showed me the picture of you and me smiling. It was beautiful and I remembered the reason I joined the army. I remembered why I was alive and why I was here. Because of you. I lived because you shielded me from a bullet but in the process....you Stepped on a landmine and blew yourself up..I remembered how much I loved you. And the anger and need for revenge turned to agonizing pain and guilt. They took me to some place and all I did was cry. I refused to eat, to move. The girl with the 'Will Of Fire' had died with the man she loved on the battlefield. I was dead. They realized I guess that I was of no use to them so they proposed a deal with me. A life for a life." She smiled. It was a real smile. A smile of happiness and love a smile of pride for what she did. "When this battle ends...and Getsus is defeated..the magic that holds my life intact will ripple and then it will break and I will be no more..I should not be here even now..I died on earth many many years ago at the age of 29..I caught a fever a great sickness that took my life...I live to die at the right time...it's the agreement I have with the Sages. And I don't regret the choice I made because....I get to see you again. And you will have a life and happiness. My only regret is..that I wont get to be there to see it. I cannot bear you a child or marry you. But this is enough." She assured him happily.



Connor Pyrogen


Connor Conner walked back into the campsite with a determined expression, his eyes held grief and sadness he had been walking around the whole area and snuck into Getsus city exploring it from the shadows to draw a updated map of the area around the city and the woods. He also was trying to find Piper and Axe so he could save them. He failed in his mission. Feeling ill about the situation. He saw Cassidy and Destin having a very intimate moment and decided to allow her the chance to do this. He explored the campsite where he saw Axe, Tink, and Titan. He sighed knowing that this Axe was nothing but a illusion. It made him feel even worse about the situation. He walked to Tink's tent and saw Ancel in stitches, Lust with blood covering her shirt, Kya with a depressed look and his heart dropped. He ran to them in a panic so upset he couldn't even talk correctly he just screamed out incoherent things that made no sense.

Dodge Hanson
Dodge nodded at her answer but otherwise remained unresponsive. It may have been selfish but he began to think of how this implemented him. This guy barely survived an encounter and he was older than Dodge. Not to mention better armed. Dodge shifted to the side to think until he saw another women come in. It was becoming too crowded in here for his liking. While Lust and the new girl started their conversation, Dodge moved out the tent doors.
Okay now I'll find Tink he thought ready to return to his origional task. He searched and quickly saw Tink lying atop Axe's tent. "Still around Axe I see." he murmered when he followed Tink's gaze to Axe. If it's an illusion that is. He couldn't really confront Tink about the illusion if it wasn't one. The amount of time he spent around Axe recently was peculiar but then again this illusion seemed more substantial than usual. He would stand and watch from here until he was sure.

Tinkerton Puck
Tink was taken back when the girl came and gave everyone orders. Would Axe have just taken orders from a stranger without question? He thought back to how Axe reacted when he brought Axe into the camp. He seemed fine after he learned she was one of the Chosen ones but then again, Cassidy didn't give any orders. Either way Tink had to be grateful that she had spoken up. After getting everyone into his tent he didn't have a plan.
Contrary to his nature he was second-guessing his order. She had told Axe to go and spread the word that they were going to win but perhaps it was too early to predict that. What was planned for tonight would be their first big act of rebellion. Before now it had been raids, sabotage or occasionally a battle but never anything this big. Reasons not to spread the word stacked up in his mind until he eventually decided that he'd ignore the order. The thought sent a shiver down his spine.

"So, i guess that girl's upstaged you, eh Axe?" came a booming voice. Tink turned and was surprised by the centaur. Not so much by the centaur in general, for he had encountered a few in his travels, but this was one he didn't know. Perhaps he doesn't belong here Tink tried but the playful smirk across it's face told a different story. I can't believe theres a entire being at the camp that I haven't helped at all. Calm down, maybe he only comes every now and then like Dodge. Still Tink had met Dodge swiftly after arriving. Also in the playful way that ths centaur said that suggested that he and Axe were close friends. Tink didn't have any idea that Axe friends beside himself. Axe had always seemed very solitary and stoic to him, not the type that made friends eaasily. Just how close were they then? If they were very close then surely he would see through the ruse as soon as Axe opened his mouth. Tink then wouldn't want to be the focus of the centaur's anger as he searched for his friend. But then if the were mere acquaintances the situation was less dire.
"She just kind of told you what to do. I would say that was very rude of her, but her plan was rather smart, so i have to give her SOME credit." the centaur said to fill in the silence. Perhaps he took Axe's silence as hurt pride?

"Yes it was. We're lucky to have such a good strategist with us." Urgh. Why did I say that. Saying "We're lucky to have such a good strategist with us" suggested that there wasn't already a good strategist here. Which in turn undermined Axe's own skills.
Think before you make other's speak, Tink.
"I might as well cook tonight, Axe, apparently rumor has it that Lust's been working on someone in her tent. Don't think she wants to cook after all she's been through."
"Oh really. Who?" Tink had started Axe to help with setting up while he pondered this rumor. They couldn't possibly be talking about Cassidy still, for she had left some time again. But if not Cassidy who else had Lust invited into his tent. It always annoyed him when people exploit his kindness because they knew he would do nothing about. Now was no exception and the annoyance soon faded.
"So, the choosen ones are finally here, huh?" he said, crossing his arms. "Finally. I think i actually recognize them all. The two men like somewhat familiar, the warrior woman i think was with me in the army, and i believe the yellow one was a dreamcatcher along with the nekos. Kya.......Anderson? I think that's her name. I don't know if...." Axe nodded as he continued with the work. Tink had to say that he was far more productive when he had a human sized body. It was almost enjoyable.
"Whoever has this should take much better care of it." Tink squinted hard to see the small object held in the centaur's hand. That must be the Sunlight stone Kya was talking about. If it really did feed on sunlight, then maybe it could be modified to feed on his own light.
"I remember seeing Kya drop that before she left. I should be able to get it back to her if you hand it to me." Axe said extending his hand to receive it. Tink's own hands clenched the tent in anticipation.

Titan


"I remember seeing Kya drop that before she left. I should be able to get it back to her if you hand it to me."
The illusion Axe extended his arm to receive the stone. Without hesitation, Titan placed the blue gem in his hand. "Alright, Axe. Just be careful with it. It's more important than you think. Oh, and by the way, sorry to cut you off earlier. I think the earth-choosen one is the one hurt. I don't know his name, but i think it's somewhat similar to yours..."

He finished lighting the last of the lanterns in the camp. It was dusk by the time him and illusion Axe finished. He sighed, and started to walk over to a pile of firewood, the torch in his hand still lit.
"Alright, Axe, i'm going to cook now. I'll see you later." As Titan left, he wondered if Axe was deep in thought or perhaps nervous. He could usually tell Axe was deep in thought when he didn't have the same rhythm that he usually had.

For the rest of the night, Titan cooked up his own version of beef stew, a freedom fighter favorite. With him working, the night went by in a flash. As the recruits ate and he managed to have a conversation with each and every one of them. As he talked, something went through his mind. What if tomorrow was the day that he could see the world again? What if the chosen ones could actually do it; save the dimension? Axe hadn't authorized it, but Titan decided to follow the wind choosen one to the wall in the morning. Since centaurs did not sleep, he would help her if she had trouble waking up. In order to use the nightmares against the men, they would have to be at the wall at a specific time. Once dinner was over, Titan cleaned up the camp, and returned to his hut in the middle of the camp.

Kya


"He will need rest tomorrow is a bit to soon even for my alchemy and potions. But I will do my best to have him in top condition so he can at least travel."
Lust's response only lifted half of Kya's heart. It looked as though this journey was about to get much tougher.
"Do not blame yourself Kya Anderson Of Air. You could not be expected to have known the outcome of this situation. He seems at peace with this situation. In the end he protected a pretty girl from a monster after all." Lust said, putting one piece of Kya's hair behind her ear. This comforted her. For a second, she looked up at Lust and smiled, her eyes regaining the same sparkle that they used to have. Could she be right? Was Ancel actually happy? This thought confused her, and she awkwardly stared down at the ground. Even if he was happy, it was still her fault.

"I saw you looking at the dragon necklace. 'Hope and Courage'..seems to have meaning behind it..Would you like me to help you fashion a gift for him too?" Lust asked Kya. She nodded, her smile as wide as the sea, but the sparkle in her eyes fading away. "Alright. Sure! I guess we can do it later when..."
Suddenly, Connor ran into the room, screaming things that made no sense. Confused, she ran up to him and placed her hand on his shoulder, hoping that would calm him down. "Connor, it's alright. Ancel is fine. Everything is fine. Now listen, early in the morning we have a plan to destroy a wall that's blockading the path in the forest. You can come with us if you like."
She turned back around, facing Lust, and waved to her. "Thanks again for taking care of him. I'll see you later."

With her bare feet, she walked through the camp, and with a gust of wind, boosted herself into one of the trees that hovered over the area. Kya knew that it was best to sleep now if she wanted to wake up early by morning. She closed her eyes, attempting to fall asleep. A few minutes later, she opened them. At first, she was confused at why she had done so, but then realized that it was a habit of hers. Back in the day, before the war, once it was night in the IDD, the lucid dreamers would fall asleep, and return to reality, waking up in their beds at home. Now was different. Since the IDD had been practically destroyed, she couldn't return back. A million thoughts went through Kya's head: Getsus, the dead lucid dreamers, the freedom fighters, the wall, Solomon, the sunlight stone, Axe, the choosen-ones, and Ancel. Before she dozed off into a dreamless sleep, she realized that there would be many more thoughts to come.
