Shaka Zulu’s Assagai - Erebus, Ylva Empty on Sun Sep 08, 2019 2:21 pm

Gamemaster


Shaka Zulu’s Assagai was one the symbol of power and balance for the nation of Stella, an echoing legend of what they had unfalteringly endured. Cradled by the titanic mountains rising high and low over narrow plains, Stella has the oldest known civilization on Earth. They have experienced everything -the good, the bad, and the between- and survived. They have enjoyed their newfound peace for so long that they did not expect the long night following the beautiful day; for the people of stella had one more tribulation left. The Holy Knights plan to burn this well of culture down in search of their ultimate prize. In their way stands the unlikely duo of Ylva and Erebus whose journey to Stella had been smooth only for so long. They have sailed day and night at the behest of the king of Fiore, bearing his call to gather the relics. The knights have laid siege to the museums and universities of the nation, spilling the blood of all those who dare to stand in their way. Erebus and Ylva must work quickly to turn back the hands of fate. Teamwork and trust in the abilities of the other is the only way to reclaim the Stellan people’s most prized possession. The holy knight’s war machine is inching closer and closer to their ultimate goal, time is not on their side.

Erebus

Erebus didn’t know how or why he was contacted by the estranged government, but the sound of one million jewels in his lap was a lot to pass up. On top of that, the luck that he would get paired with Ylva was even more bizarre. It made him wonder just who exactly was keeping eyes out and if he was being tracked in some data book. Irregardless, he decided to flip the script and take the job. It didn’t seem like he had much to lose anymore; after all he had recently become full-undead, and his regenitive powers were slowly but gradually coming together to make sense of just how hard to hurt he was. If anything, this venture would test the kind of mental he had. It was further training towards his goals to eventually take over Fiore; before moving into other countries. Like the one they were heading too now. Stella—

Stella was a country of wealth and prominence. Besides that, Shaka Zulu’s Assagai was located here and according to their much awaited mission’s details. That would be there saving grace against the recent seraphim sightings. Angelic monsters that were worse than even Demons. Much scarier too, if you took into account their true forms were able to stand up and touch the heavens. Worh eight heads, and a wings of hot fire covering their naked bodies. Their eyes... never blinking. They were horrifying entities. And today, Erebus would make their hunt for the relics a little harder. Attempt or not, he had every intention of merely enjoying the fun.

As he stepped off the boat and into Stella, he could tell damage had been done to the port town they were entering.

”I guess we can look around here before moving a little inland. But i dont think this town is going to have what we need, it’s already been raided.”

Ylva
She was as silent as she had ever been through the whole trip. Hardly saying anything if she didn't need to. The call to join in something greater had led her back into Erebus's path, something she was more than grateful for. She remembered a time where she had to look up at him. It made her feel safe in his presence. Now she was more or less staring into his eyes. It was a wonder he didn't comment on her ridiculous growth since the last time they saw each other. A night she did not try to remember now as it would only distract her. Today would be bleak, she would have no joy in this because she knew it would be no easy task to retrieve what they came for.

"No. We don't have time to waste, especially not here. "

Stepping off the boat she pulled the hood of her wizard's robe to reveal her emotionless face. It was the first time she had ever felt empty inside. Knowing full well that the people of this land did not deserve to suffer as they were doing now. Grabbing her Rain staff off of her back she took the lead, moving further into the city and away from the docks. Ylva could only hope with the research that she had done, that this little game of " find the needle in the haystack " would come to an end sooner rather than later.

Erebus

Ylva was right, making gain towards an effortless beginning would only fare in turmoil. Erebus left the unloading to the superiors on the boat with them, he was a ploy in this game, and did not wish to 'lead' as you would think. He desired only the money, and whatever else came with helping this disgusting world; he could care less for. For now, only victory made him hungry. Erebus was starving for a success.

He had noticed that his pupil, who could now be called his friend; had ignored talking too him on the way here. It was understandable to him, he had given her drugs, helped her up when she couldn't shake the sadness. Only to then not speak to her for many weeks. That kind of thing often did create weird divides; even so, neither of them were the type to take that business serious. So he figured she'd come around sooner or later. After all, they were partners now. You can't argue with the facts.

Erebus would let the crew know Ylva and he would scout ahead for the first two days and report anything back that could get them closer to the Assagi. After doing so, it was time for the Nephilem, and the Mortal Coil, to make off for their journey.

"Don't be a stranger... You felt like shit after that bean, didn't you?" He finally said, his lips grinning. He was joking mostly, but then again. He wondered how her system fared. Some people weren't able to do it without staggering effects the next day. He didn't happen to share that trait, but maybe she did.

Ylva
Her head was a jumbled mess. Was she really going to ignore this area knowing full well that there were innocent and most likely hurt and scared people who needed help? Why couldn't life be simple? Why couldn't everyone just live in their own peace and be happy? She knew the answer, it was eating away at her. This wasn't who she was but she had to be this way. In her mind it was the many over the few, but in her heart was all. No matter what is was all. How could she have even thought that it was OK to look past what was around her?  

Of course something didn't sit right with this bleeding heart but she knew, she knew deep down inside that this was the best course of action. It was only when she was spoken too that Ylva was ripped out of her own thought bubble. Her eyes, a beacon of hope, fell on her friend and mentor, Erebus. She never did understand the last night she had with him, but every time she thought about it her body set itself on fire. When he brought it up she played off a small chuckle.

"... I felt, weird. I wouldn't say I felt bad. It was just different is all. More afraid than anything else, Since I woke up alone.. When I went to sleep with someone. "

The last words really told a story. She didn't want to talk about it but the night with Erebus was her first time, and it was spent in a drug filled haze. It was her fault of course. She should have known better but she was stupid and naive. Not hearing from him for awhile afterwards made her feel some sort of way, but those feelings were quickly replaced when she changed from a human to a Nephilim. In her new body, a sense of logic came over her, things she hardly understood were as clear as day, and she was embarrassed by her lack of.. Well judgement on her part. She couldn't stay on the subject, not after what she had just said, she needed to move this into a different direction.

" Something about you has changed. For me it's obvious, but I can't quite tell exactly. I just know, like me you aren't as human as the last time we were together. "

She led the way, they needed to go deeper in. She made a compromise to herself to only help those she saw, at least that way she didn't feel so bad about not helping those who were immediate need around the city.

Erebus

"It was a good night though." He finished in behind her, his face still mostly void of surreal emotion about it.

Ylva's responses always interested Erebus. The honesty behind her gentle words, gave him hope that not everyone alive was so worthless. That somewhere, someplace, individuals existed that were worth the effort of protecting. She was one-- though he often rejected the religious, she had definitely opened his mind to others and their beliefs, and now. It did seem like she was physically different, more superhuman. Had grace from God brought her to this new level? He wondered... The buildings in this area were burnt to rubble and debris from a war at the divine level. Ylva was new to her holy presence, and Erebus new to his unholiness. Their powers were still infantile and new, which made Erebus anxious. He questioned the success of his own strength, lacking much magical knowledge, on top of losing most of his powers after the Abyss. He wasn't who he use to be, and he needed more time to regain those bearings. Yet here he was, in a bid against Angelic entities for the fate of Earthland.

"I changed, for the better-- I guess. It's important to always move forward and never look back. I traded my humanity for a vision that I will see manifested. A world without consequence and prejudice. My world is pure, and death; for better words, is out of the question in that dream."

He sighed. It seemed he was always forcing himself to be apart of things so much larger than he was. Ambition... How unique, for such a person with no reason to exist other than to survive. With Ylva leading, and Erebus drifting about a few steps behind her, he made sure to examine everything, and to keep his alerts on. This was a seek and collect job, but the truth of the matter was that a lot of powerful people were on the same scavenger hunt. Careless action couldn't be allowed, Erebus maintained that thought. Allowing it to guide him forward.

Hermes
Destruction was scattered, far as the eye could see. Buildings that had collapsed in upon themselves, weakened by the intensity of flames cast from mana and science. The scent of decay and iron filled the air, and yet not a single discarded weapon was to be seen. Bodies were hidden among debris; At least, whatever was left of the bodies. The thing about war was that it was not forgiving to those who were unfortunate enough to cross its path. It was like a storm, its trajectory unpredictable and its aftermath a stark reminder that existence was not kind to all.

There was not a single unnatural sound. That was, perhaps, the most unnatural thing about it. The two of them had walked, idly forward, away from the ship they had stepped away from. Yet what was it that they had stepped into? While a city had certainly once thrived there, a metropolis of joviality and life, all that was left were memories. Memories that neither one of them would have, nor speculate.

But then, life was funny like that. In the absence of voices, bartering with and for their meager earnings, there was wind. In place of footsteps and laughter, horse hooves and the clanking of guards armors, there was the crackling of embers that still burned within pillars that were too thick to turn into charcoal. And somewhere, hidden within this background noise, was their warning.

It started behind Erebus, the further back of the two, but in an area that wouldn't be easy to pinpoint. A laughter that was faint, yet prominent enough to travel against the blowing of the wind and to their ears. Then, as that noise was heard, another voice joined. This one from their left. Again an unidentified cackle made itself heard, from their right now.

Finally, before them as if from no where, stood a man. As he solidified before them, so too did the other three voices. Either side of them, about ten meters off from the rubble, appeared two forms. Then, walking from some hidden area among the destroyed homes as if to block off their path, was the original voice, also stopping about ten meters away. All four beings looked identical. Each was tall, thin, hair slicked back with a scar along their face that seemed to at mystique to the twisted smile on their face. Their eyes, all pink, seemed to be looking both at Ylva and Erebus, as well as somehow through them. The one who had appeared in front of them, as with the other forms, was about ten meters before them, and still.

"Hello."

The one in front of them, blocking their path, spoke first. The other three just continued to cackle, their voices both barely audible and yet drowning out any other sounds.

"You seem to have wandered in on something you shouldn't have-" He stopped speaking, as if in mid thought, his eyes snapping to Ylva's, and then down her frame.

"Oh my," came the same voice, to their left.

"Inhuman," From the right.

"Would you like to explain why you're trespassing in another mans home?"

Moving Clone to either side. Speed Clone behind. Buff Clone ahead. Yet they had all been made ahead of time. Neither of them would know which was which. Neither would know if any of them were real. Neither would know if any of them were fake. All they knew for certain was that they had been surrounded. That was thing about traps, though. The prey never knew they were caught until it was far too late.

Ylva
She could remember of course, and she couldn’t agree with him any more if she tried. The last night she spent with Erebus was almost like a dream, and if he wasn’t here to verify how real it was she would have assumed it was just a dream. In the eyes of many the two would seem like a very black and white pair. They were different in so many ways but that didn’t stop them from enjoying each other’s company. She remembered when she first met him, she would have been lying if she didn’t admit she was afraid of him all those times they were together, leading up to their most recent interactions. Something about him was off, it was like watching someone try to hide a limp, or seeing an ever so slightly tick that someone tries to hide coming to the surface. She didn’t like it but at the time she needed him to learn and learn she did. Their friendship blossomed quickly, and more or less violently in a way that could only be described as good and chaotic.

“ You might find that playing with the cycle of life and death to be a mistake. You are my friend, and your vision sounds like it was made with good intentions. So let me be the first to warn you, think real long and hard about the world you’re imagining… And any consequences that might come with it. “

The world he wanted was impossible. The only way he could have it, was if he took free will from others or worse. Not everyone wanted what Erebus did, and that was just the nature of humans, a race of very different individuals. This wasn’t even mentioning the many other races that inhabited the world. And a world without death? What really did he mean that “ death would be out of the question “ ? People needed to die, it wasn’t nice but if everyone stayed alive forever wouldn’t that just create a bigger problem in itself? The world wasn’t big enough for his vision...It certainly wasn’t ready for it. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the time or place for such a conversation. They would have to have a day where they could sit down and have a nice drink and delve further into this. Now was the time to focus on what was going on around them. The smell of burning bodies and smoke in the air caused her blood to run cold, the destruction of buildings where people worked or was their home. How did it get to this point so quickly? It disturbed Ylva and caused her to place every alarm in her body on high alert. And she heard it. Faint, but a sound that shouldn’t be amongst the chaotic scene.. It caused her to slow her walking closing any distance between her and Erebus, grip her staff just a little more lightly, eyes darting around a little more quickly than before.

“ We need to stay close… I think someone is…”

Her voice trailed off, as her eyes caught the first man. He didn’t spark any fear in her but she knew that this was probably the first of many battles they would have to got through to get their desired target. She found herself inching closer to Erebus, trying to close any gap the two may have between them as more of the same man surfaced from all sides of them. Her crystal blue orbs bore into pink ones as they stared down at her. Her ears pricked as she heard the words
“ Inhuman “. Whoever he was, he couldn’t have been human himself to know that about her. Her eyes darted among the figures, she counted four which was two more beings to possibly fight making this tip in their favor. Already they were at a disadvantage, something she knew would be a possibility but not something she was looking forward to facing.

“ I would, if we were trespassing. We are just passing through to help those who can’t help themselves. So if you could just let us continue on our way, there are a lot of innocent and hurt people in this area. “

She wasn’t about to tell this man what they were really here for, but she also wasn’t completely lying when she said what she said. She needed to figure out what this man’s deal was and quick. Because right now it seemed like they were about to be on the shit end of a beat stick. Giving a glance to Erebus she would hoped he would follow her line of thinking to avoid a fight. She didn’t know him well enough, no she really knew nothing of  the man that she was about to rely on to not get her killed. She could only hope that their time together had fostered something a little stronger than friendship in order to survive this whatever was about to happen today.

Above them the clouds started to slowly but surely darken, a breeze that she would have enjoyed under different circumstances caused her hair to ripple for a moment before settling down . She hadn’t heard anything about there being rain today, but if it did she wouldn’t complain too much about it. It was a shit day and perhaps the rain would put out some of the fires that were doing a bang up job of helping destroy the town they were in. Her attention was spread thin between the four creepy looking individuals that shared the same face and the same voice. Was it magic? An illusion or some sort of clones? Or were quadruplets preventing them from going any further? The latter thought sent a shudder down her spine. This was mostly because whatever inhuman thing was surrounding the two of them either all shared the same power, had vastly different powers, or any variation of the two. She needed more information about who these things were, it was probably the only way they were going to get out of this alive.

Moon threw a silent glance towards the dark haired boy. She was no ordinary being, traversing this even less ordinary plane. Her ghostly figure drew a pause over the events as the tips of her toes graced the ground Ylva and the others stood on. It caused a ripple like effect to go through everyone present. She reached a long elegant finger to Ylva's forehead and with a weak smile, snapped her fingers. Having observed the events so far, it seemed this little one was much dependent on the man with her. On her own, she would be weak, and that would suit her purpose more than enough. Thus, the girl's memories of the brunette vampire was erased just like that. Without waiting, she soon took hold of Erebus and muttered the ancient spell, effectively taking the boy back home. Once the scene of pause wanes and washes away, it would be as if Erebus was never there.

Ylva
She felt weird. Deep in the pit of her stomach she knew something was wrong but she couldn't figure it out. Something wasn't making sense here. Something wasn't adding up. Why the hell was she alone? Why was she surrounded by all sides with no one with her? This was not her, she did not move in this manner. She couldn't remember anything outside of getting off the boat and basically walking into the situation she was in right now. She didn't even know why she started conversing with these men when she knew that if they weren't hostile they wouldn't approach her in the way they were. The silence between the two was far too long. She had gotten a good look at all of them, she knew how far they were from her. She needed to make a move before they did.

Ylva was quick as her hands came together, her staff firmly between her palms as she poured mana into her spell. A 0.5-Meter Diameter Blue magic circle appearing in front of her clasped hands brought forth a orb of water that had a golden glow to it. Even though she was facing the Clone that blocked her path going forward, she quickly position herself and shot the orb of water at the clone to the right of her. The orb of water moved at twenty meters per second and with the ten meter space between them she could only be positive that it would hit. Rather her spell did hit or not, she would make a run in the same direction as her spell. She couldn't be a sitting duck, she had to take at the very least one of these men out, they were no friends of hers, they were the enemy.

The girl was not one to hesitate, or so it seemed. She understood the change of her situation, and she had decided to act to stop it. Her hands came together on her staff and channeled her mana for an attack to shoot to the right side, at one of the clones who had stood within the rubble of the building. As the orb formed, right before it shot out, something that would come as unnerving made its way into the air.

Laughter.

Loud, disillusioned laughter rang out into the air. Each of the clones, including the one who was shot at, had begun to laugh. And then, as the blast shot forth, the four of them also began to move.

The clone that she had shot her blast at collided with the spell, its laughter becoming shrill for a mere second before cutting off completely as the technique ripped through its existence.

However, with her attention turned, would she have noticed the three clones speeding at her? The one behind her to the right, the speed clone, was catching up even quicker than the other two, the mad cackling never ceasing. The other two, although slower, were also closing the distance.

She had now put herself into a bind. If she stopped to turn and fight, they would be on her before should get off a single attack. However, if she kept running forward blindly, she'd still be overtaken. Her decision here would determine how this conflict continued forward.

Ylva
A small dose of euphoria spread throughout her body as she watched her spell hit and destroy the man she aimed to kill. It was short lived of course as she realized that humans didn’t die that way, no human even fainted in the manner that the one she thought was a human just did. She was not going up against a human. The thing she destroyed did not fall like a human would, it vanished, like a spell would. Ylva of course couldn't be sure but it was the only thing she had to go on. Magic was in play here, and if the three things behind her were created by magic than she was sure to have a chance of beating them.

She ignored the laughing sound that ripped through the air. The laughter that came from the four when she started her attack. She wasn’t going to let it rattle her, she had too much on the line, like her life for example. Still she couldn’t wrap her head around why the hell she would move alone like this. Her mind ran with a million and one thoughts that at the moment did not matter. Her feet carried her away from three other targets but she didn’t know how far she would go after the first had been dispersed. Her mind raced for answers as things behind her began to shift. She went after one so of course the other three would come after her. Ylva was scared, fear ran through her like a questionable burrito from a food stall outside of a restricted area. Very little options presented themselves to her. She could hear them behind her, she really only had two options and none of them worked in her favor.

The rains turned even more heavy and for Ylva she had someone to thank as her body slipped on a surface she couldn’t keep steady on. The weight of her body falling on ground she didn't realize was hollow ground. This caused her to fall right under the earth and into a chamber that held the exact item that she was looking for. For Ylva she had escaped danger enough to run into a spot in the ground that was damaged enough that would pull her under before any harm came to her. Her luck was even more so that she fell through a hole that led her right to an underground chamber. Ylva was surprised more than anything to be led right to the object she was looking for, as her eyes fell on the shrine where Shaka Zulu’s Assagai was held high on a perch. Ylva was in awe, of course she did not think she would ever find it someplace like this, but those that hid it knew better. Still she was a little hurt and could only hope that those who wanted to harm her had lost her instead.

As the ground gave way beneath her feet, the laughter stopped. It had stifled itself, abruptly as the change of scenery that she was now taking in. It would likely have taken her a moment to realize that those who should have caught her upon her fall were no longer there, and that the hole above her that led into the outside world was silent. Only the sounds of wind passing through wreckage made its way to her now. Perhaps there would be the suspicion of the three silently surrounding the hole in an order to raise tensions. Perhaps she didn't consider what happened at all, only soaking in the relief of their absence.

Regardless of how she would react, her attention would be brought to her right by the sound of clapping. It was slow, deliberate, and as sarcastic as such a sound could be. Luckily the light from above had poured into the underground structure, giving no need for her eyes to adjust to the new area. She'd see him as soon as she would turn her head. As she'd look towards him, his clapping would stop. His hands would be pressed together, an amused grin on his face. His eyebrows were furrowed together, as if he were trying desperately to figure something out.

"You made it."

His voice echoed within the chamber, a deep laugh coming from his lips. His head tilted slightly, eyes staying locked onto her own. "I'll be honest, I didn't think you'd make it down here. This is more than six feet under, right?" With that, he'd begin walking forward. His footsteps were slow, but each time one of his feet smacked the ground the noise echoed as if it were coming from a man much larger than himself. There were only five or so meters between them, but his speed was casual. It was now her move.

Time almost felt as if it stood still, her breathing slowed, and her heart raced. She couldn’t believe her luck, not only had she gotten away from those three who were chasing her but she also found exactly what she was looking for. This may have seemed like an absolute win but she knew that those men were most likely a product of magic. And she would have to at some point face the individual who created them. This thought rattled her, because as soon as she thought it her head snapped to the right and she scrambled to her feet. A sound of clapping forced her to place all her attention on a single man. He looked like the four men she was lucky enough to run from and from the way he moved he did not see her as any sort of threat. All her fears were realized when he began to speak. Of course this wasn’t going to be easy, and of course she couldn’t catch a gosh darn break. Her eyes darted around to take a look at the chamber. It was a circular room and she fell more or less in the middle of it, not even a whole foot away from the spear itself.  The thought of using the spear was tempting but she didn’t know what it did and she didn’t know how to use a spear. Luckily for her she could still snatch it up and that’s exactly what she did. Under her wizard robes was an accessory that allowed her to hold her own staff securely on her back. It was a useful little thing and allowed her to use her hands freely and retrieve her staff quickly and smoothly if need be.  Taking the spear and attaching it to her back she would quickly clap her hands together with her staff between them, a blue magic circle appearing in front of them and a droplet of water with a blue glow appearing in front of the blue magic circle. She couldn’t think or find a way out of this place at the moment, and she was sure as hell not going to outrun him. She had to end this right now in order to take this weapon out of this country without someone on her tail.

Shooting the water droplet straight out at the man who was just in range of it at five meters, she stood her ground, with the intention to only move away if he wasn’t on the edge of that five meter gap. Her spell shot out faster than he was walking, and she could only hope that he didn’t have anymore tricks up his sleeve. He would be able to see the first spell but she wasted no time in setting up a second one, doing the exact same motion as before, clapping her hands together with her staff between them and a magic circle appearing in front. Her eyes focused in on her target,  another droplet of water appeared in front of her, but this time it had a green glow to it. These spells were meant to heal, but the person who she was attacking was not a friend nor an ally, and so these healing spells did exactly the opposite of healing as they saw only an enemy to damage. The casting of the second spell would only come after the first if the man dodged the first spell cast, this was so she could follow his movements. She hopped to weaken him enough to gain the advantage but alone she did not have the confidence in herself to believe that she could do it at all.

She didn’t know how long it had been since she thought about her family. As of late they were something she pushed far in the back of her mind, along with the threat of those wanting to harm her. She couldn’t believe how far she has come as a scared, weak, young woman from another country and no real understanding of how she got to Fiore. Ylva never imagined that she would be here, fighting to save the earth, and being apart of something much greater than she was. She wondered if her mother would be proud of her now, and she thought of her sisters and what they might be up to, if they were even alive. Ylva still didn’t understand how she got herself in this situation. Going alone on something like this was basically sucide for her. What was she thinking? Taking up a task like this all alone. It was stupid and it was probably going to cost her life but she was already mixed in the shit and she couldn’t go back. Ylva didn’t even try to converse with the man, he was clearly out for blood and it seemed he was after the same thing that she was. To Ylva that seemed a little suspicious. How long had this man been down here exactly? Was he just waiting for someone to come along so he could attack them? Was he waiting on her? What the hell did he mean he didn’t think she’d make it down here? Now her mind was being clouded by thoughts that confused her. How long had a trap like this been set up? Was she spotted as soon as she came into the port? And even if she somehow managed to defeat this man would more people be waiting outside for her? Her heart raced as she whipped herself up in an anxious frenzy. Sweat matted her blue locks to her face and she could feel the sting of tears clawing their way up, and threatening to push themselves out. She wanted nothing more than for this to be over. She was a sitting duck and all she was really doing was wasting her mana for a possibly fruitless mission. “ Who are you? “ She needed to gather some information about this man. Although fear was currently wrapping around her body, she would not let it weaken her, she would use it as fuel to press on.

Ylva
Fear, anxiety, and an overall feeling of dread was really digging it’s claws into the poor girl. Her mind kept going in and out between different things, never really being able to cope with the situation. In her mind she could only think the worst, and the worst in her mind wasn’t even the worst thing she could think up at the current moment. She watched with wide eyes as both of her attack hit the man, square in the head. She didn’t know how much stronger than he was than herself. She couldn’t get any information in the midst of a battle and it was all the more concerning that she realized that this man was probably sent by the damn Holy Knights to stop her. This little tibet gnawed at her because she knew that if he was with them that he was also miles and lips stronger than she was. No matter how many spells she threw at him she knew that she wouldn’t be able to out right beat him. Ylva took a moment to take a look at her surroundings. The two spells would stagger him enough for her to look for a way to escape. She knew she couldn’t beat him, so she would have to lead him to people who could. She had what she was looking for, it was in her possession and that was the first step to all of this. The sweat that had been forming on her face was starting to fall, she knew they were cold sweats and it didn’t really help calm her down. What would help her calm down was thinking about the one person she wished was here. It was of course unfortunate that he wasn’t, and what was worse was that she was painfully aware of how weak she was now.

Sky blue orbs frantically scanned the room. The light from the hole in the ceiling made it easy to see where she was and what was around her. With the way the light fell from the ceiling, she could only see so much of what was around them. Her feet began walking backwards, in order to to keep her eyes on the man. She knew she didn’t have much time before he bounced back from that attack. Her heart beat louder in her ear than she could possibly take and it was annoying her. She didn’t know when but at some point she broke into a run. Ylva figured that he was sufficiently slowed, and that if he could do what he did above ground she would stand no chance down here. Her feet took her to the edge of the chamber where she found herself hitting a wall. “ No, no, no. “ Her hands ran along the cool stone and she ran along it until her fingers brushed along something that caused a hole in the wall to open. Taking a quick peek inside she could see that the hole led to a hallway, lit with candles. A part of her screamed to find another way but she knew that wasting anymore time would most likely land her in another fight with the man behind her. Saying a little prayer she dipped into the hole and nearly once again started to run.

In a different time, and a different place Ylva would perhaps be married by now. Or in a new country with her family. Perhaps she would be learning magic or becoming more rebellious with her sisters. Maybe she would be apart of a cult. Whatever life had for her she wouldn’t always be ready but she would adapt as she would need too. All her life she had to learn to adapt. Things were always hard but eventually she learned to deal with it and grow. It was hardly an easy process but she managed. Oh all her sisters it was told that she would be the most able in any situation she encountered. Although she was the youngest she was the glue that kept them all together ( and out of trouble ). Ylva could remember the first day she floated into Fiore on a boat with nothing to her name but the clothes on her back and a new name in her pocket. She was lost and confused and of course scared out of her mind. She was only ever able to adapt to different situations so well because she had her family with her. They were the things that kept her together, they were her glue. When Ylva was alone she fell apart, she was weak and vulnerable. Her strength came from others, she never had any come from just herself.

She was a weak individual who needed others to survive. Even now, with a great task handed to her she needed someone and could not believe that she would have done something like this on her own. It didn’t matter though, as her mind was too foggy to remember the details in which she agreed to take on this task. She doubted herself every step of the way. Who would even take the chance of relying on someone like her? Her mind frantically searched for an answer to that question. She needed something to lean on, something to get her through this ordeal and out of it alive. Ylva could remember the Seraphim, he relied on her. He was hurt and he relied on a human to be there for him. A weak human in the face of a mighty Seraphim? How could she help him? Ylva always wondered that to this day. She couldn’t heal him, but little did she know that no magic that she possesses would be able to heal him anyway. All he needed her to do was stay with him, something she did and in turn was blessed for. She wondered what happened to Seraphim when they died, and she wondered if he was watching over her now. It was a silly thought but it pushed down the fear a little bit that was running through her veins and it gave her a little bit of something in herself that pulled her out of a dreaded state of being.

Ylva didn’t know how long she had been running for, but she kept taking many different turns and followed and steps that went upwards. Wherever she was it was quiet, and for a while she hadn’t run into any people or other beings which gave her some much needed relief. At some point she stopped her running to take off her robe and carefully wrap the spear up in it to hide it before attaching her own staff to her back so that she could keep the spear in her hand. She had made it this damn far with the thing, she wasn’t going to just let someone snatch it off her damn back. At some point all her running got her to a point where she began to hear voices. This caused her to slow down because with those voices came bodies on the floor. She could recognize some of the bodies and without any hesitation grabbed one of them and dragged them into a room. Ylva still had no idea where she was but she could only deduce that she was closer to the surface and that the holy knights were fighting with those on her side of this mess. Finally she had run into some reinforcements but she didn’t know what was really going on.  Ylva quickly and quietly got to work removing the dark robes off of the person and placed them on herself. She was lucky that the robes didn’t have any identifying patterns on it, so she would be seen as a neutral party or at the very least not a full on threat by either side. Once she was fully covered in the long dark robe, she checked the spear to see if it was all in one piece before wrapping it back up and making her way out of the room. The sounds she heard were one of obvious fighting. She could see sunlight spilling from certain places and found herself a window. Ylva needed to get this thing to it’s shrine, and with what was going on that was probably harder said than done.

The rain had stopped since she last been onto the surface. The window she fell out of, placed her in a sort of blind spot of all the fighting and chaos. She was running on luck at this point and it didn’t take much for something like that to turn around in a horribly violent manner. “ I’m going to take a long vacation after this.. “ The words came out under her breath as she used the destruction around her as cover in order to get away. She watched as people fought, some ran, and some laid on the streets dying in rivers of blood. Every part of her wanted to help those people, the part of her that help others no matter who they were, the good part of her that was slowing being overtaken by a more cynical and realist Ylva, who learned from experience that not everyone was to be trusted, and not everyone deserves her help. It was her first and most people second, and right now although she wanted to help these people, they were second to the cause. She knew that once she got her piece to where it belonged this would all be over, and it would be brighter, better future for everyone once this was all over.. Or so at least she hopped so. At some point Ylva made it to the docks and like she feared the boat who brought her here was no longer there, not only that the docks were teeming with Holy Knights. They had taken the fucking docks. Thankfully she was in a position where she could see them but they could not see her. This started a trek that would lead her a smaller dock, one not really visible and hardly accessible unless one owned a small boat. Thanks to some prior research Ylva knew where she could get a smaller boat as she also knew about this dock.

Still she had to be careful and so with no more time wasted she made her way down to that tiny dock and found the boats near it that were small enough to leave it. The boats ran on mana and they were fast. It didn’t take much to get them going and they came with paddles in case someone couldn’t use mana to power them. Ylva got in the boat, and quickly began pouring her mana into it, but at a slow and steady pace. These things didn’t need much to power them and she was happy about that because she has already used some of her own during the fight with the guy. Had it not been for so many twists and turns in that exit she found she was sure she would have already been caught and probably dead. As she got further away she could see fires and hear loud noises fade in the distance. They were going to burn that place to the ground. Ylva wasn’t leaving the country though, she was on her way to the fabled shrine for the spear. The place she had found it was not the shrine itself, and it was probably just the spear’s holding place so the two wouldn’t be together if something like this happened. The shrine was on a tiny island, a little bit off the mainland and she quickly made her way there, thankfully being greeted by those on her side as they made their way to the shrine’s location on the little island, placing the relic onto it’s shrine and completing the mission that she was given.
