Arrian and Talia were running, or at least trying to, weak as they were after their captivity. Held in Glory for a time unknown they had been stretched far beyond their abilities for ages. The constant drain on their Reiatsu and lack of a decent meal was not truly showing.

Talia, the Heartwoodian red crashed through the landscape with a wild thrashing that showed her exhaustion as every step was a heave forward with every last bit of willpower that she had. She would have flown them away but the giant Heartwoodian's wing membrane had been damaged in the escape from the Faction by a lucky arrow. Not wishing to rip the membrane with the forces that were required to heave her bulk up into the air she now ran beside Arrian. Her Felris bond. Chased through the night and most of the day they were now at the end

Staggering with his own fevered exhaustion he was none the less trying to motivate his bond forward even as the world darkened as he neared the end of his strength. "We are close Talia!" He wheezed, pausing for a second as he looked back, the voices of the Faction far to close for comfort.

With a last whomp Talia collapsed, sides heaving, "Can't!" She exclaimed. Turning to his bond Arrian hobbled over and placed leaned on her cheek,

"The Lake is close, we can swim it, they can't... just a little more." He said softly. "We can do this... we have survived so far, let us not give up now."

Talia weakly opened her eyes and looked out, just before them thinning trees ended and she could just make out the sparkle of the Shimmering Elera. With a deep rumble, she willed her legs to move, slowly standing she pushed forward, Arrian staggering beside her, half attempting to push and half being dragged along.

Bursting through the trees they headed in a slowing stumble for the shore of the shining lake. Off to the left, just around the curve of the shore, they could see the ruins of the Elven camp.

There had been quite a commotion as the faction made it's way threw the realm. It looked as though they were all retreating. The war between the faction and everyone else was growing tiring. He understood what they were fighting for but the faction was gilded or that was his opinion of them. Every where they went they caused people pain and suffering.


He followed the faction for a little bit. Most had left to Felnova but there were still a few lingering. He had ran into some and ended their lives. They didn't leave him much of a choice. They attacked him almost immediately. There could be some really good people among the faction but there could also be some really corrupt people.

He now found him self near the shores of Elera and he knew that the lake was a sight to behold. He was looking for a place to rest. He was starting to feel weak. Being in the sunlight for so long was taking it's toll on him and it had been some time since he had last feed.

The shore sloped down, causing their shambling run to speed up a bit into more of a continuously controlled fall than a proper shamble. Letting loose a rare curse word Arrian as he headed without control down the shoreline and into the soft sand that ringed the Elera. Losing his footing in the sudden change of ground from firm to soft he landed in the sand, too tired to even be grateful that it was a soft landing.

Talia thundered up and past him, snatching at his already torn clothes to get him back on his feet, the huge Heartwoodian now powered mostly by gravity rather than anything else. Together they hit the water which just sucked all of their momentum away leaving then slow and weakly splashing in the water which hissed against Talia's heated side.

What was worse was that the Faction had caught up and was now they were out in the open so they were raining down arrows upon them, Arrian tried to muster up a flame or something but all that happened was that the world faded away as he was beyond the point of being able to fight at all.

As Sebastian approached the beach he saw something interesting. Some of the remaining faction seemed to e be circling round a couple. The coupled seemed weak and tired. Sebastian had no idea what the faction wanted with them but he knew that it couldn't be anything good.

Sebastian approached as quietly as he could. He was feeling pretty weak but he knew that if he played his cards right he could take out a large portion of their forces.


Without being noticed Sebastian was now standing directly behind two of the faction members and could see the couple were trying to defend themselves but were clearly to weak to. Without any warning, Sebastian stabbed his sword through the chest of one and bit into the neck of another. He knew how to drink without killing someone but he had no intention of sparing this soldier.

After a second he pulled away from the soldier's neck and he fell to the ground dead. He then retrieved his sword from the body of the other soldier, preparing to fight the others.

Talia stopped thrashing in the water, it had been a long shot anyway as Heartwoodian Reds weren't made for water. But when pressed for any chance even the wild crazy ideas seem sane and right. As she turned the hail of arrows continued and pinned her in the lapping waves of the Elera, Arrian pressed against her side, weak from trying to stop the arrows.

Hissing in angry and fear as she watched death approach, it took her a moment to realise that two of the Faction were down and that a third, none Faction looking person was killing them. Or... eating them. She blinked, not trusting her eyesight yet... yes, a vampire was helping them.

"Arrian...." she said to her bond whos weight she could still feel against her side.

"I see it..." He answered, trying to track the movements of their rescuer but his vision was a little blurred from the recent attempt at magic.

"Can we?" She asked, not needing to tell him more than that, she knew he knew what she was thinking.

"It would be the last of us for a while..."

She turned her head and looked at Arrian, hope again glimmering in her eyes, "Let's get those Faction bastards." She rumbled, pulling herself up to her full impressive height and coming out of the water, letting her natural body heat burn off the water from her scale as Arrian climbed up onto her back, and letting off a weak but heartfelt battle cry as Talia rushed the confused clump of Faction archers. An arrow whizzed past Arrian ear but he ignored it, death wasn't something to fear anymore.

Quickly they tried to reload their bows but their rushing made them clumsy and by the time some had even gotten a arrow knocked Talia was amongst them, letting her weight crush the slow ones under her feet as she snapped and bit those that were within reach.

The faction tried to react to Sebastian but they weren't expecting their prey to start hunting them. Out of no where the Heartwoodian and Felris began to attack the faction. It appeared that they were done running from the faction.


Despite being the instigator in the fight, it seemed that most of the attention was on the pair which would allow Sebastian to continue his assault. Moving as quickly as he could he grabbed another soldier and sunk his teeth into their neck. Within seconds he had completely drained them dry. It had been a while sine had had last feed and he was enjoying him self.


After feeding for a second time he wiped his mouth clean of blood and began to get serious. He swung his sword a few times getting warmed up. He had finally gotten some attention. Apparently it took losing three of their soldiers to an unknow enemy to get it. The majority of the soldiers were still on the pair but he was now surrounded by four or five.

Talia's continued assault on the few remaining Faction wasn't one of skill or much grace, it was more of a wild thrashing that sent any who approached with tumbling under her belly only to be crushed or flying after a bone-crunching thump from her tail. It wasn't a very pretty sight but she was beyond caring. She wanted to live and now there was a chance.

Arrian sat upon her back, mostly protected by the fact that he to was a fire element wielder, not that he wasn't on the edge of being uncomfortably hot where he was touching Talia, but it was bearable. He slashed his claws and kicked any of the Faction that got lucky enough to make it passed the thrashing Talia was doing and try and attack her tender sides.

Together they managed to ride the world of the 10 archers, none of whom had run, but then that was Faction logic for you.

Pausing once the last in the group was sent flying into a tree she turned to see what and where the Vampire had gone.

Sebastian's sword was met with resistance as he swung it as his foe. He could sense their fear. While they had the advantage in number they were no match for him. He could tell that the men who stood before him had no real training. Feeling bad for them he showed them a mercy he had not shown the other three. "Leave now if you still wish to live or die by my hand."

None left. They would not take his mercy for fear of being dishonored by their family and hunted down by the faction. Two approached him simultaneously. He step aside avoiding one and met the other's sword with his own. Then he kick the own who had locked swords with him backwards before driving his sword through the man's chest. The second attempted to take him from behind having stumbled behind him but Sebastian move the first's body between him and the blade. Then he stabbed his sword through the second, still being in the first's body.

The other's looked terrified and could barely hold their weapons. He felt bad for taking their lives but he knew that if he didn't they would take his for what he had done to the rest of their troop and then they would continue their hunt for the pair. One of the remain troops still wielding his bow released an arrow at Sebastian but the Vampire simply moved the two bodies still attached to his sword into the arrows path. He then pulled his sword freed and lunged at the bow man cutting a deep gash in the warrior's chest. Knowing that the warrior would die, Sebastian turned his focus to the remaining two. They put up a short fight but it wasn't long before Sebastian put an end to their lives.

Once done he turned to the pair he had rescued. "Are you alright? I hope they didn't cause you to much harm."

As the last of the Faction faded from this world and the Vampire who had helped them turned towards them and asked if they were all-right Talia found her legs melting from under her. Her belly hitting the ground, the heat causing a slight smoking fro the tough grass that scattered the shoreline.

A small almost whimper like sound escaped her as she realised that she was free at last, that they were free at last.

Faintly she was aware of Arrian sliding off her back and talking to the Vampire.

It was not a very graceful slide, the same relief that had struck Talia was washing through him as well. With a wild laugh, he slid off her back and ended up in a pile on the ground, waving a hand towards the Vampire to say that he was fine.

"We are as well as can be expected after an extended stay in Faction clutches and a day and a half of running." He finally managed to get out. "Thank you, I do not think that we would be here if you had not helped us."

Sebastian wiped some sweat from his forehead. He looked to the sun and cursed under his breath. He wanted the sun to go down so that he could recover his strength. He felt like every moment that he spent under it was zapping him of his strength.

"I am sorry you had to endure them for so long and I apologize for how we had to met. I would preferred for you not to have seen me feed."


He looked at the dead bodies that covered the ground. "We should probably not stick a round for to long. I am trying to find shelter if you would like to join me. I need to get out of the sun."

Arrian waved a dismissive hand as Talia slowly focused on the Vampire and said, "They are Faction, we cannot even care enough to not care if you eat a few of them or not." Slowly she forced her legs to work and she raised her belly a little bit from the ground and with slow movements started to walk.

"There are ruins close by along the shore..." With a groan Arrian also stood, swaying a little as he stumbled after Talia, "We may take a while to get there if you need to go ahead, go ahead. We will be along as we can." She finished wincing a little as she flexed her wings, wishing to fly but knowing that she would be grounded for a while yet.

"Ai, go on ahead, we will be along now, now." Arrian added as he slowly passed vampire, patting him on the shoulder as he passed by. "Oh!" He paused and turned the vampire, "Please forgive us, it has been a while since we met anyone, not Faction so we are forgetful of some politeness's. I am Arrian and this is Talia, my Bond."

Sebastian looked towards were Arrian had begun to walked. He hoped that those ruin were close by but he knew that if they were, they would be the first place that someone would look after discovering the dead bodies. He would have to keep his guard up.

"My name is Sebastian, it is an honor to make to meet you. I would love to travel with you to the ruins but I can't being in the sun to much longer." He once again wiped some sweat from his forehead. He wouldn't currently die from being in the sun but he the more he was in the it, the weaker he was and it would make it harder to recover.

"I'll make sure that the ruins are safe." He waved and walked towards the ruins as quickly as he could. He hoped that there was a nice comfy dark room he could get some rest in.

Arrian smiled, waving towards the direction of the ruins he said "Go! As I said we will be along as we can... don't worry about needing to leave us to our own pace."

Talia, looked back although she didn't stop moving, "I doubt that we need to worry about the Faction for the at least a day. They are busy leaving Evylon."

After a few minutes of walking he found the ruins that Arrian had spoke of. "Thank the gods," he said as he approached. He looked around the ruins for a moment before finding somewhere he could hide from the sun while keeping a look out for the others.

He sat watching for the others for a minute before closing his eyes. He fought the need for sleep for a little while before he lost and fell into a light sleep.
