Re: Chapter 1

After both Nari and Jayden had explained everything about how Seri spoke to them, he couldnt help but wonder why these two, and not himself

All I wanted was to take revenge on those bastards! But now thats being taken away from me as well. Damn!

"Well it seem you two have your work cut out for you. There are others you mustfind aswell no?" he asked, trying his best to sound cheerful.

"Thats right, but we wouldn't have the slightest clue on who they are or where to find them? Perhaos Seri will point us in the right direction?" Jayden replied.

Nari sat still, deep in thought.

I wonder if she knows something else that she hasnt told us?

"I think I need some fresh air. You two have some more catching up to do," Clief said.

As he stood up Jayden nodded his head with thanx, and then turned to Nari. It was nightfall outside of the cave. Clief looked up to the stars, as he had done so many times as a child. He couldnt remember much of his childhood, or the day of the attack. His mind began to drift off a little

There was fire everywhere. A young Clief running around trying to help defend his village. Someone came through the bushes to attack him, but a tall man intervened and stopped him in his tracks, embedding him with his blade.

"You must hide my son!"


"Hey Clief?" said a familiar voice.

Clief snapped out of his day dream to find Jayden standing next to him. He was also looking to the stars.

"Y'no, i havnt really looked up at these since i was a kid...i forget they're there sometimes," He said.

Clief just stared at him and couldnt help but feel sorry for him.

He had lost everything he held dear twice as a child. He must be fighting hard inside. At least he has someone to go through it with

"Would you like to join us back inside the cave? It's a little cold outside dont you think?" Jayden offered.

"Sure, that would be nice," he said as they turned towards the cave and entered it.

Re: Chapter 1

The cold air ran in through the cave but it wasn't that, that was keeping Jayden awake. He repositioned him self so he could get to sleep better but sleep wouldn't come. He was to excited. He had finally found his best friend after 2 years. For the first time in a long time, Jayden was happy. He found his best friend and he had made another friend.

Jayden started thinking of Seri. Now that he had found Nari, what was he to do now? He had no clue of where to go or what to do. Then he started thinking of Clief and he might feel like an outsider since he hadn't been spoken to by Seri.

Seri hasn't spoken to Clief. Will he still hang around, now that I've found Nari? He might feel like an outsider and leave. I'd still like him to travel with us, even if he hasn't been chosen.

Jayden decided that he'd ask Clief to travel with them in the morning. On that thought, he started to fall a sleep.

Jayden woke up. He was still tired but decided to take a morning walk. Besides, it might give Clief and Nari time to get to know one another. He looked at the cave entrance to see how light it was outside but found he couldn't even see outside.

Jayden started coughing. It was smoke but what was causing it.

"EVERYONE, GET UP", yelled Jayden.

Jayden had already gathered his equipment and belongings when Nari and Clief stirred.

"Why did you wak...", said Nari in an exhausted voice before being interupted by Clief.

"It's smoke", Clief said in an alarmed voice.

"What", said Nari, wide awake now.

"I'll go check outside" said Jayden. "Gather your equipment. We must leave now".

"Wait", said Nari but he had already left.

Jayden stepped outside to see the forest around him was on fire. The green trees that he saw yesterday were now burnt black. The sky was covered in billowing black smoke.

What happened here?. It was fine a couple of hours ago. Who or....what could've done this?

Re: Chapter 1

Clief and Nari both came out the cave to meet up with Jayden, and saw the same horrific sight. It was all gone, the whole forest was gone.

What could've happened here!? Could we have been followed? No, we were always checking.....could the new threat already be here? If so, then is it too late?

Both Nari and Jayden looked at the empty burnt out forest with a horrified look upin their faces.

"I think we should probably leave this place. We dont want anyone coming here and thinking it was us," Clief suggested to the two.

They looked at him, then eachother, and agreed that it was a good idea. They got the rest of their things from the cave and headed east, towards the town of Ishba. It was the second largest city on this continent, so Nari and Jayden were to find anyone that could help them, it would be there.

***

After afew days of travel, and rations getting low, the group decided it was best to rest for a day and resupply their water, and perhaps any fruit if it could be found. Clief went by himself to get the water, and left Jayden and Nari o find some food before anyone could object to. He headed towards a lake, and decided he mite have a short swim to relax.

"It's been a while since i even had a bath....a very long time indeed," he thought aloud.

He took off his equipment and clothes and walked into the water. He went as far as waist deep before he stopped and took in the scenery.

Re: Chapter 1

"Hey Kyli, where are we going?"

"Don't worry about it, Roache. Just follow me, and you'll be fine."

Kyli and Roache strolled around the city in a nonchalant manner. The people, the guards, the shop keepers, no one had any expectations of what the events that were to follow.

"Alright Roache, remember last week when we got the meat from the keeper down the road from here? Well when I start running, we're going to split up. You're going to take that alley. Follow it to the end and make a right. I'll meet you there, and we should be able to shake the guards if you follow my lead."

"No. Kyli no! You know that I'm no good at stealing. I thought we were just going to relax today!"

"Nope. I hope you're ready, because I'm gone."

At that moment, Kyli picked up sausage links from a vendor's stand and gave them to Roache. "Kyli, no. We're not going to do this today." Kyli grabbed another chain of links and took off.

"Kyli! What..?!"

"You! Thief!" the vendor yelled. Guards patrolling the streets snapped to alert and began running towards Kyli and Roache.

Roache threw the links and began running up the street. He was ducking and dodging through the crowd when he finally reached the alley that Kyli mentioned earlier. Since last week, it had been blocked off by crates. The vendor near that alley was currently restocking.

Roache continued running up the street. He ducked down an alley that ran parallel to the blocked one. He took a right, thinking that it would lead him to the same area. As he ran down the alley that was shadowed by the buildings, he came to a dead end. Roache was trapped between the walls and guards.

"Scum. You want to steal, you'll lose a hand!" shouted a guard.

Roache was terrified. He knew this whole plot was a horrible idea. The guards began charging and Roache cowered in the corner. He grabbed a nearby stick off of the ground and pointed it at the guards. "Stop!" he shouted adamantly. A light frost began creeping along the ground. The guards ran across the frozen ground when the frost snared their legs. Roache looked up at the guards and was amazed at what he saw.

"It can't be," one of the guards revered. "His eyes...they're...they're..."

Roache's eyes had the tell-tale sign of the snowflake.

"Up here," a familiar voice called. Roache saw that Kyli was inside of house, hanging out of a window. He jumped up and some garbage cans, took a few steps up the opposite wall and jumped to Kyli. She pulled him up through the window and they took off together.

Re: Chapter 1

Nari and Jayden wondered around the forest and eventually found enough food to pass as nourishment. They thought about hunting for something to eat, but came to the conclusion that starting a fire would only bring more trouble.

Nari and Jayden setup camp and waited for Clief to return. “So where have you been for the last two years Jayden?”

“I’ve traveled most of the southern continent in hopes of finding you.”

“So we’ve been doing the same thing. I really wonder what we are in store for now.” Nari sighed.

Clief returned. “Hey there is a great Lake over that way if anyone needs to freshen up.”

Nari jumped to her feet. “Great! I’m off. Don’t you too be peeking.” She giggled and ran off.

Re: Chapter 1

"er...Nari", Jayden yelled. "Cliefs down there". But she had already gone.

Jayden wanted to clean himself too but stayed by the camp incase monsters or Kruasarians came buy. He started thinking about Seri

I have alot of questions to ask her. Hopefully when we next meet, she'll point us in the right direction to our other comrades we'll meet. Perhaps we might even find one in Ishba. My soon-to-be comrades. Would they believe Seri. Would they believe me. Would they be Quin-Jin? How many are there?

Jayden looked up at the sky, hoping for an answer. But it did not answer.

********

10 minutes had passed and Jayden was bored already. He decided he would practice melee combat, since he had no experience with it at all. If he were to save humanity, then we couldn't just fight from afar. He would have to get up and close.

He decided he would practice using short swords. They were light and swift. Perfect for Jayden. He grabbed a sharp rock from the ground and started carving a sword out of wood from a fallen tree.

At last, he had crafted a short sword. Sure, it was made of wood, but that was all he could use until they got to Ishba.

Now...who should I practice with...

"How about me"

"Who said that", said Jayden, wondering where it came from.

"Me", said the voice.

A Dragon was hovering above the trees next to the campsite. It was Duegan

"Duegan" said Jayden, surprised the dragon had come out of the Crystal sword. Let alone that it had spoken to him. "What are you doing out of your sword".

"I snuck out while Clief took a swim", said Duegan. "Man that swords stuffy".

Duegan stretched his wings and landed next to Jayden.

"Now", said Duegan. "I heard you needed practice".

Jayden was confused. How did Duegan know he was gonna need to practice on something.

"I can read minds. All Dragons can. I can read Cliefs mind while I'm in the sword. That way, I know when to come out, what Clief plans to do next and if he wants me to lend his power to him. All he has to do is think it".

Jayden was still confused. He didn't know dragons could read minds. He wondered whether Clief could read Duegans mind.

"Yes", exclaimed Duegan. "Clief can read my mind. But only Clief can. Its a special connection we share".

Jayden stared at Duegan. He could see battle scars across its body. He wondered where the dragon had got them.

"Enough talk", demanded Duegan. "Lets see you try if you can hit this rock"

Duegan started flying over to a boulder and used his nails to scratch an X shape into the boulder.

Jayden looked at the sword in his hand and raised it towards the X mark.

Re: Chapter 1

Clief was of wandering around, sussing out the area they were in, in case they needed to escape in a hurry. He found tracks that led to the campsite, and they were fresh.

What!? Great, i gotta hurry!

Clief began to sprint towards the campsite following the tracks. All of a sudden they had disappeared.

What the? Thats strange

We walked back into the campsite to find Jayden attacking a rock, and Duegan hovering above him

"I think you need an actual person to spar with dont you?" Clief chuckled.

Jayden quickly turned around to find Clief with his hands on hips laughing.

You should go back in Duegan. You know you shouldnt come out like that. What if someone sees you?

A flash of blue appeared, then Clief's sword began to glow the crystal colour again.

"Just give me ten minutes to make another wooden sword alright?" Clief said.

"Alright then. Although i hardly think this is fair.." Jayden chuckled.

Re: Chapter 1

"Hey Clief", asked Jayden. "Did you happen to see Nari down there by any chance".

"Ah no", replied Clief. "Did she go for a swim"

"Yea", said Jayden, wondering what Nari was doing. "You done yet"

"Yep", said Clief, "Okay, you ready for this"

"Of course", exclaimed Jayden.

They walked away from each other until they were 5 metres away. They turned around, bowed and began the training.

Jayden ran up to Clief and swung the sword which Clief easily deflected. Jayden stumbled abit but went in for another swing. This time, Clief dodged and tripped Jayden. Jayden fell to the ground, surprised at how strong Clief was.

"C'mon", yelled Clief. "You can do better then that".

Jayden got back up but wasn't ready when Clief jumped towards him. He dodged but fell to the ground again. He looked at Clief to see him swing his sword once more. Jayden got his sword up just in time to stop Clief's sword. He pushed his sword against Clief's sword as was Clief pushing his sword against Jayden's sword. Clief's weapon was getting closer and closer to him. He had to think of something.
Suddenly, Jayden started swinging his sword around in circles, whiched moved Cliefs. Jayden jerked his sword towards himself, then moved it hard to the right. Clief's sword went flying into the air and clattered to the ground.

Clief was shocked, then he smiled. He extended his hand to Jayden to help him up which Jayden greatfully grabbed.

"Your getting better", said Clef. "But you still have much more to learn".

While Clief retrieved his sword, Jayden dusted himself off. He was surprised that he was able to disarm Clief.

"Hehe, don't think for a sec that a real enemy would be that easy", said Clief in the distance. "I wasn't trying to kill you, so I had to hold back".

Clief walked over to his equipment and added the wodden sword to it.

"You'll never know when you might need an extra weapon", said Clief. "Anyway, there's are Weapons Guild in Ishba. They train people in all types of weapons. You won't need to go the Archer Tutor, but you might wanna check out the Sword Tutor. She should be able to help you abit".

Jayden put the wooden sword by his bow and sat down, feeling weird by using a different weapon.

Re: Chapter 1

Clief looked at Jayden for a second as though he was about to speak, but decided against it.

"Perhaps we should go check on Nari?" asked Clief.

Jayden nodded happily.

"So how did you become so good at using a sword?" Jayden asked Clief while walking to the lake.

"My father taught me when i was a boy" he said as he lifted his shirt, revealing a large scar across his chest, "his handy work. He was a hard trainer to say the least....otherwise Duegan has taught me a bit aswell"

"...your father...do you have many memories?" Jayden asked asked a little shakily.

"No...not much...i was about 9 when....well, when it was taken away from me," Clief replied.

Both men went silent for a couple of minutes.

"Jayden?"

"Yes Clief?"

"When we get to Ishba...I was thinking just now. Theres should be a tournament around this time of year and maybe you may find someone to help you on your quest...and it would also be a good way to challenge your melee combat aswell..." Clief suggested.

Jayden looked at him and saw Clief with a dim look on his face.

"It sounds like fun...but you have to teach me more!" he replied

Re: Chapter 1

"There she is" yelled Clief. "In the middle of the lake"

And he was right. Nari was swimming around in circles in the center of the lake.

"Nari", yelled Jayden. "You should get out of the lake".

"WHAT", screamed Nari, not hearing Jayden.

Jayden sighed and yelled even louder then before. "I SAID THA....."

A loud deep noise surrounded the air.

"What was that", said Jayden.

"It's an Adamantoise", said Clief. "They sleep at the bottom of lakes for a number of months".

"Like Hibernating", asked Jayden.

"Yes", answered Clief, "If there disturbed while Hibernating, they become ferocious".

Jaydens was shocked. They would have to get all there equipment and leave their campsite. If they stayed, there was a chance the Adamantoise would find them and attack them.

"NARI", screamed Jayden. "GET OUT OF THE LAKE NOW". But Nari was already swimming towards them before Jayden even spoke.

The Adamantoise cried again. This time it sounded louder.

"I'll go get our equipment ready", said Clief.

The two men nodded heads before Clief went back to retrieve their equipment.

Jayden turned back to see how far Nari was from the bank. She was about a quarter of the way now. But that wasn't the problem. Ripples of water were coming from the center of the lake and there was a Dark Shadow there as well.

Nari was at the bank now. Jayden helped her up.

"Wait", said Nari. "I still have to get dressed".

"Okay", said Jayden anxiously, "But hurry up".

Nari quickly ran over to her clothes to get dressed while Jayden kept an eye on the dark shadow.

*****

"Okay", said Nari, now fully clothed. "I'm ready".

The two went to run back to the campsite when they heard a loud splashing sound.

They turned around to see water flying through the air. When the water disappeared, they saw the silouhette of a giant tortoise.

"Lets go", said Jayden.

***

When they got back to camp, everything was in 3 sacks. The fire was out as well.

"Here, said Clief, tossing Nari and Jayden the respective sacks.

"Okay, said Clief. "We should get outta he...."

A loud crashing sound came from the lake. It started getting closer.

"No time", said Nari. "We fight it".

Nari got out her daggers and was ready to strike any moment. Clief followed by getting out his steel sword, but was ready to grab the Crystal Sword in case he needed it. Finally, Jayden got his bow out, ready to release a flurry of arrows.

The Adamantoise crashed through the trees. Its shell was a greenish-bluish colour while its skin was a pale yellow.

Jayden released 6 arrows in quick succession. They all hit its shell but splinterred or bounced when it came in contact.

They were shocked, but had no time to react to it. The Adamantoise lunged forward. They all dodged it. Nari took the chance to jump on its back. She thrusted one of her daggers into the shell. The Dagger bounced off it with such force that Nari fell of the Adamantoise.

The Adamantoise noticed Nari on the ground. It raised its front legs so it could stomp her. Clief ran up to it and made a quick slash at its stomach. The creature cried and fell on its side.

"Of course", said Clief. "We have to strike its skin to be able to hurt it.

Jayden helped Nari up while the Adamantoise got back up.

They all readied there weapons, ready to strike its skin.

Re: Chapter 1

The Adamantoise stood up on its hind legs, then smashed his front legs on the ground, shaking the earth. All three were shaking, not being able to find their balance. The Adamantoise then rushed towards them suprisingly fast. Nari was the first to react and just jumped sideways so she wouldnt get hit. It was just Jayden and Clief in its path now, neither of them being able to find their feet. Jayden stumbled to the ground, and Clief went to one knee.

Damnit!

The shaking less vigorant now, Jayden was the first to react, but had no time to move out of the way, so instead fired off five quick arrows aimed at its head. The Adamantoise was deterred and changed course now, but instead headed for Clief. Their was no time left, he wasnt able to move out of the way. The Adamantoise hit Clief, who had just managed to lift his sword and stab it, but was knocked back with such force he flew through the air very fast and hit a tree, very hard. The tree now had a large crack from the impact, and Clief gave out a yelp of pain. Nari rushed over to Clief with her quick feet and crouched down beside him.

"Clief!? Are you okay?" She exclaimed.

He shrugged her off and pointed towards Jayden, who now was the only one left fighting. She paused for a moment, then knew that she had to kill that thing before it killed them. She stood up and faced the Adamantoise, then began to run very sqwiftly towards the side of it. Just as she reaached it, she slid under it, revealing the yellow belly to her. She then stabbed both of her daggers into the belly and ripped through it to the other side. Jayden saw what she had done, and released 3 powerful arrows in its head. It collapsed to the ground but wasnt dead. Jayden felt that they shouldnt kill it, after all, they were the ones to invade its sleeping ground. He then looked at Nari, and he could instantly tell she was thinking the same thing.

"Clief!!" Nari yelled out, pointing over at Clief.

They both hurried over to him, to find him unconcious.

Re: Chapter 1

The Adamantoise made a high pitch roar confirming it was still alive. It shook its head and threw the arrows out of its head. Rearing the lack of damage was apparent. It turned towards Clief and started to charge.

“You take care of Clief, I can distract him better then you.” Nari commanded, Jayden noticed a strange cracking pattern in her eyes.

“I’ll get him to safety and come back to help, don’t get yourself killed.” He said nodding. He knew she could outrun it, but killing it was another thing. Jayden lifted Clief’s unconscious body and ran.

Nari quickly chanted off her ninjutsu’s. First she copied herself with a mirror clone move, then float, and finally haste. Striking from al directions the Adamantoise was very confused, striking rampantly. This was working for the time being.

Jayden finally found a safe enough place to set down Clief. “I’ll be back, I hope what you taught me will help.” The run back seemed to take almost no time; just as Nari came into view he could see she had learned some impressive tricks. He gained new hope for only a second until he noticed the Adamantoise rearing, he could tell it was about to do a hydro jet attack. What it was most feared for. The sweeping spray hit every one of the fake Nari’s that were running around, and finally concentrated on the remaining real Nari to the front.

The Blast hit Nari head on, but for some reason that Jayden couldn’t understand it seemed to bend around the area surrounding Nari. He approached close enough to see her eyes had turned a strange snowflake pattern on both Iris’s. “NARI!” he yelled at her, no response. She seemed to be in a trance.

The Adamantoise now frustrated that its attack was failing fell from it hind legs and turned its eyes to the new target. Jayden looked at the beast, then at Nari, who was now surrounded by a cool blue mist. “Nari!” still no response.

Nari started walking slowly forward, the ground under her freezing with each step. “Sleep now in an eternity of nothingness.” She whispered raising her hand as a thin arrow like attack flew from Nari’s finger.

Jayden watched as the small needle hit the Adamantoise, instantly turning it to a block of Ice, only to see Clief flying in sword overhead hitting the shell of the giant beast, shattering it.

Nari passed out, returning to normal.

Re: Chapter 1

"NARI!!!" Jayden yelled as he rushed to her.

With the shell shattered, Clief swung his sword while still in mid-air, producing his slice beam, cutting through the Adamantoise and cutting it in half. Clief landed on the ground only to collapse to his hands and knees. Jayden was too focused on Nari to notice.

"Nari!! Wake up!!" he yelled, shaking her violently.

She barely came to, her eyes back to their original state. She smiled up at Jayden, with her eyes barely open and then fainted. Jayden was relieved that she was okay. She just needed some rest.

Clief now sitting down still dazed by his own injuries looked over to Jayden and Nari ans smiled.

Your both so lucky to have eachother. What a connection

He looked over to the Adamantoise. It was a disgusting sight to say the least.

"Hey Jayden!" Clief yelled

Jayden spun around to see him sitting down. He lifted his head in acknowledgement.

"Take my steel sword and cut some pieces from that thing will ya? We can cook it for food." he said as Jayden looked back at Nari, "She'll be okay, she's not going anyway from 10 feet away from you" he smiled.

Jayden looked at him for a bit, then nodded. He walked over to Clief and picked up his sword, then walked to the slayne beast and cut some slices from its flesh.

* * * * *

Later that night, around a campfire, not too far from their last campsite, sat Jayden and Clief, with Nari laying down next to the fire.

"Perhaps we should start training more vigourisly?" Suggested Clief, clearly a little sore and clutching his ribs.

"Yeah...."Jayden responded.

He must feel bad that he couldnt protect her.

"We'll see how she is in the morning. She's just exhausted," Clief explained.

He turned to Jayden and found a worried look on his face. Clief smiled at him, keeping eye contact for a while hoping the message would sink in. Jayden then turned around and lay down as if to go to sleep. Clief did the same thing.

Re: Chapter 1

Cato woke in his cave deep under Tear Lake. “Someone is fighting an Adamantoise?” he whispered to himself.

The vibration was enough fro Cato to analyze the fight above him. Feeling the fight he opened a passage closer and closer to the surface. As he got closer he started to be able to profile the combatants. “So we have a small female, very agile, but not to strong, most likely a Quin-Jin. Two taller male’s of which I cant make out their race, both rather skilled fighters, but still a little green.”

As the fight continued Cato listened as one took a serious blow, when a distinct change happened, the girl started fighting much differently. “Nari!” Cato suddenly felt ill, he knew his sisters fighting style when things were close to loss that was until the final change of pace. He could hear as the earth cracked and froze above him. Something had changed, a legend was just opened, and he almost felt bad for the Adamantoise.

With the battle over he followed through the ground to where he figured was their camp and listened in. After a little bit he decided to surface just outside the camp.

--------
Nari woke a little dazed, her head hurt, but she felt a new feeling of power in her body. Not sure what to make of it she shook off the feeling and looked around camp. Jayden and Clief seemed to be talking about the battle. Clief seemed pretty beaten up. “Hey guys, did we win?” She yawned stretching her arms above her head.

A voice familiar yet out of place. “It was quite a battle really, I am surprised you three a stupid enough to fight such a beast.” A short figure with long hair appeared just outside of full view of the camp’s fire.

Clief spun in place and Jayden grabbed his sword.

“Cato?” Nari asked quickly.

“The one and only.” Cato said coming into the light of the campfire. “What a battle you guys really did have, how have you gotten so strong little sis.”

Nari jumped to her feet and ran over to the strange monk. “I’m not the much smaller then you.” She said hugging him. “Jayden, Clief, I’d like you to meet my older brother Cato.”

Jayden lowered his sword and walked over hand extended. “Nice to meet you I’m Jayden.” Cato bowed but didn’t accept the outreached hand. “What’s with you and not shaking hands?”

“Ah Jayden, I’m sorry its not that I mean to be rude, but I cant see your hand so I cant shake your hand.” Cato explained. “So you’re the brave one who lacks skill with the sword, but has the advantage in luck, and that means the one with considerable skill but overall bad luck during the fight must be Clief.”

“Yes, it’s a pleasure to meet you.” Clief said not bothering to move; with consideration that Cato couldn’t see. “How is it you know so much about the fight if you cant see?”

“I feel the earth, it tells me everything you see, as long as its on the ground.” Cato replied modestly with a chuckle.

Re: Chapter 1

"You must be hungry", said Nari, grabbing a piece of cooked Adamantoise and offering it to Cato.

"No thanks", said Cato, looking disgusted. "So", asking all 3 of them, "Where are you headed".

"Ishba", said Jayden.

"And what brings you to Ishba", asked Cato curiously.

"Well...", began Jayden and Nari.

*****

"Seri", said Cato. "Seri came to you".

"You know her", asked Jayden.

"Know her", said Cato, laughing now. "I practically saved her life".

"What", exclaimed Jayden.

"How do you know her", asked Clief, trying to get into the conversation.

"It's a long story, said Cato. "Are you sure wanna hear it".

All 3 of them said yes and Cato began.

"About 3 week ago", began Cato. "I was meditating in the Stadlo Mountains. I was in the 13th hour of meditation when a loud noise interupted me. It sounded like something had hit the ground. I stopped meditating. Angry that I had been interupted. But when I knew what lay infront of me I was shocked".

"It was Seri of the Black Winds", Cato said, now looking at Nari. "I remembered the storys that Dad use to tell us about her and about what it felt like to be in her prescence. I just knew it was her. Anyway I knew she was hurt badly, so bad that she couldn't even speak, she must of being trying to get to the Fountain of Life".

"The Fountain of Life", said Clief. "I thought it was just a myth".

"Whats the Fountain of Life", asked Nari.

"The Fountain of Life was supposodly created by the Gods when they created the earth", said Clief. "It is said that its waters are what kept the Gods alive while they created the earth. It also healed them of any wounds they recieved. When they left the earth, they created the Stadlo Mountains around it so no-one could get to its waters and abuse its power."

"Yes", said Cato, "I couldn't just leave her there, so I decided to take her to the fountain myself. I knew I'd find it because I was with Seri, and you see, the path opens up only to a God or a Goddess.

"What", said Jayden.

A Goddess. Seri's a Goddess. No way. How could I not tell she was a Goddess

"Seri's a Goddess", said Nari, surprised by the discovery.

"Yes", said Cato. "Anyway, I gave Seri some water from the Fountain of Life and she recovered almost instantly. She thanked me and gave me the ability to go to the Fountain of Life myself. She was about to leave when I stopped her. She told me the world was in danger and she had to warn the warriors who would stop it. Then she disappeared into the air. I suppose that she meant all of you".

Clief wanted to say that he wasn't chosen by Seri but decided it was better not to.

"May I join you", said Cato. "On your quest. I would like see what danger she was talking about".

"Ofcourse", said Nari. "You're my brother".
