The androids were unfazed as they automatically repaired instantly and even upgraded to the point his blades couldn't even scratch them being androids their reaction speed was far superior than a human's,one then dodged and grabbed him by the leg and began to slam into the ground repeatedly like a rag doll before throwing him through several treeshttps://youtu.be/30lGrarz3MQ Android:Worthless...
“Oh?...” The Corporal laughed as he got back up unfazed by their attack. His eye began to glow blue as his blades began to glow. “Got some bite...” He spoke as he vanished, his speed now exceeding their mechanical senses. His blades slice deep through the machines before an explosion resounded destroying every last trace of one android. “But still a waste of time...” He narrowed his eyes as in a span of ten seconds every last android was destroyed to a point where they could not repair.
"Huhm?" It took him a moment to realize. "Oh- I'm, I'm sorry if I freaked you out. It wasn't my intention. You seemed familiar. I thought your name might clear it up, but, er, sorry." Edward would rub the back of his head, clearly his train of thought lost, now.
(I'll take that as a yes)
Suddenly he would be surprisingly impaled through the back with a forearm before his power was wretched out along with his heart before his body was tossed to the side Terror-byte:Worthless Organic...consider that as a warning... he then turned to code and left
(We haven't even dealt with the Hunters and now you added killer androids... One at a time, please! Also, Spec, I know you said we have to work as a team to defeat the Hunters but even as a team we did literally nothing so do you have a plan or quest or whatever to make our characters stronger or is it going to be something we do ourselves in our own ways? I have no problem with either.)
(There will be quests to gatherer the right equipment. And of course, not all of us have ultimate magic and power at the moment. So yes, for now they should be avoided at all costs until we all train to face one as a team. So in time we will face them. Of course Siris belives he can fight everything himself alone so he needs a lesson)
The man avoided the attack with ease, not even a scratch on him. His blades were prepared as the two simply avoided any blow at All. He simply laughed as he prepared himself. “Activate...Peer through all...Eye activate...” He spoke as his eyes had a light blue glow to them now.
“No matter what you are you won’t even touch me...My next strike will be the last...” He spoke and aimed his sword.
(Last warning, he will win. These guys might as well be conquering the world for all humanity. They have the power, and fighting ALONE Won’t win you anymore. No more one man doing everything OP style. You try to one up Me, I will counter it and then some. This ain’t a one man show, these hunters are a whole different enemy that are not supposed to die in 1 second. It requires training and people to match them together. Because each Hunter has Their own uniquene skill that makes a straight 1v1 duel results in your death.)
(You see, I don't call Spec's characters op, because I have been roleplaying enough to know that if he has characters very powerful, there will be a counter or, like he said: our characters will gather the right equipment and work as a team.')
(The character you made was just an answer to a situation that you can't win, so you try whatever to win.)
"Medium rare, please." Edward said before taking another sip of his water.
(Fucking garbage makes zero sense wtf are we supposed to do or where to go do we need to just gain god like powers and kill them is that it!?can ares kill them can the demon lord kill them!Can thanos erase them!?Fuck off with that noise it's the first arc!)
(Bruh, you are running into them early. They can be beaten, but you just bring in all sorts of “Your strong, but I’m stronger” nonesense. Your the one bringing top power already when the others are being far more sensible with more normal characters. So before you fucking mouth off on me being OP, your the one who was litteraly bringing god damn gods to fight a superpowered entity that only you had the power to beat.
Bruh, it’s not SUPPOSED to be you going of fast like your the fucking hero of the story. Your not going to be Rambo kill the bad guys and end with you in victory. No, this is more focused on teamwork and getting to the point to fight them on an even plane. To WORK WITH EFFORT to gain power. Meanwhile you want all the power from the start, starting messes with a Lilim, and simply having three wives from the start without actually meeting them here and making a fresh new relationship.
So, before you even dare mouth at me being OP and ‘fuck that noise’ I actually plan for this. This ain’t a one hour RP where’s we are all the god Damn chosen one. We work, we train, we love, we hate. WE ACTUALLY HAVE A STEADY RIDE TO THE END GAME CONTENT! Instead of fucking going IM STRONG! I BEAT ALL BECAUSE I AM A DAMN HERO!
Normally I don’t get pissy yet if you wanna be a god damn Hippocrates and questions ME! Look in the damn mirror first.)
(Terror-Byte was already planned to be a thing I'm just introducing him and don't we all want to win,I'll believe that there's a counter when it happens and even if their is what are we supposed to do,we don't fucking know so we can't win therefore it's rigged,we haven't started to look for it by the time we do everything would be destroyed,this arc is going to be even longer and more unfun and tedious than the manus arc,what happened to the fun arcs like the Elizabeth arc!? ,so fuck off with that noise)
Terror-byte would then turn to data and leave,suddenly the explosives planted would detonate destroying all their vehicles,supplies and remaining soldiers leaving the captains and the one guy left this battle wasn't really worth their supplies and troops lives while more androids could be rebuilt a terrible trade off
(Yeah, your not supposed to fucking know everything in a god damn hour. Nor in a few days. We have been at the town for a good week and longer. And yeah people want to win. However it’s not all about my character is strongest character so I win using insta win shit. No, and the whole fucking world is not going to be destroyed. Villages will be destroyed, people gonna get killed. But that’s the point, if you wanna rush to your deaths go right ahead.
I’m using your emotions as the story. If you wanna Eh a Hero you’re going to duel. Plain as that. If you wanna take your time and be smart about it you are gonna gain the ability to KILL THEM. It’s not all about trying to win in a fucking day.
Rome did not become a glorious power in a fucking day, it took time. And brains, and people working TOGETHER. NOT this braindead method of ‘Fuck your long plots, I wanna kill all the things and win because I feel like winning.
No, screw that. There will be fun arcs FFS, there will Be funny arcs. THIS ARC IS THE OVERHANGING END POINT! YOU DONT HAVE TO FUCKING TRY AND END IT IMMEDIANTLY! You work up to this point For fucks sake. It’s like a dang RPG, you do quests to get stronger, make new allies who have fought with them FAR longer than you and have WAYS to fight them. PEOPLE AND FREINDS to work with to WIN
SO rightfully fuck off. This plot spans a massive new chapter. It’s not supposed to end in simply 2 parts. Not even 10 parts. ITS A SLOW RIDE TO THE END! With the enemy doing horrible things and you working you’re damndest to grow to a point to TRULY FIGHT BACK!
Your RUSHING AND TRYING TO BE THE DAMN HERO WHO WINS ALL! And like hell are you simply going to one man this shit. HOW ABOUT FUCKING PLOTTING FAR BETTER THAN THIS SHIT AND TRYING TO WIN BECAUSE YOU WANNA WIN!?
Your acting like a kid who wants his way. And trying to dig up points which are FUCKING OBVIOUS TO BEGIN WITH! This is the END GOAL, not the STARTING GOAL!
Siris:Well yes she looked up to her greatly she did her hair like hers and wore an eye patch like hers and as for her eye I have no clue if it's fine or not she could've lost it the night of the fire,and don't turn her into a mamono please She's the last remaining human sibling.
As the explosions wracked the remaining vehicles, the Corperal sighed as he sheathed his blades. “Guess that means we have to do the work ourselves...No overtime pay for this sadly.” He shrugged and laughed to himself as he left to regroup with Brakks.
“I take it we lose our forces...You know what to do then...Comrade.” He spoke as he tossed the remains of his ciggarate away. “Keep on going and complete the mission. Overtime of course.” The man named Comrade smirked. “Never liked my real name anyways.”
Durella simply giggled. “If she tries to kill me again, no promises.” She winked.
(Not going to read any of that, and fuck you the Elizabeth arc was fun the storyline was great and I felt the immersion,this arc is nothing but endless grinding while innocents die unless we get the dragon balls and whish them all back after we use the arrow to get requiem stands to defeat them!)
(For the last time...You know what. Forget it. Arguing with you is like slamming my head against a brick wall and trying to get the wall to break first before my head. This is a nation meant to kill all monsters and those that support them, they don’t hold hands and dance like muppets. They kill, and until you can get to a point to face them, they will do just that. It’s up to everyone else when they want to. Or even if they want to. And yes, your not going to stop them so buckle up...You can’t be the hero of this nor are you goin goin to make a big difference alone.)
After some timeAlis would come back with Edwards steak. "Here you go sir, enjoy... Uh, your names Edward, right?"
(I say let the dead stay dead. Being realistic, bad things happen to good people and that's just how things go. Yes, she deserves to see her family again but what makes her so special that it happens to her? It happens a lot more even in the real world than what we'd like to imagine. That's just what I think. Also, even if I wasn't cheated I still don't know what so good about that arc. Maybe because I missed about half of it makes me not like, I don't know.)
She would come back with his whiskey and leave it on the table. "I'm sorry about... That. Just when you said whiskey I felt like... Actually. Nevermind. Sorry, I'll let you get back to your meal." She said, leaving before he could say anything.
(Cry me a River, boo hoo...Oh how horrible...Oh the reports are so evil I could cry...Just for that, I won’t even include an option to revive anyone and I’ll do an evil event you cant stop. Involving one character close to yours...I’ll be grinning all the way, so congrats. I’ll be more evil just for you Abyss.)
Edward would stare at Alis for a moment. Upon realizing the awkwardness, he looked back down at his plate to think. "Whisky..." He thought. "My last name is Whiskey." He stated out of the blue, looking back up at her.
Alis gave a surprised look. "It... Is?" She then smiled and gave a laugh. "This is just so weird... I felt like I've met you before but that's impossible considering..." Well, Edward should know. Being apart of the Order and all.
(Cry me a River, boo hoo...Oh how horrible...Oh the reports are so evil I could cry...Just for that, I won’t even include an option to revive anyone and I’ll do an evil event you cant stop. Involving one character close to yours...I’ll be grinning all the way, so congrats. I’ll be more evil just for you Abyss.)
(Bruh it was obviously a joke chill I'm not going to report you I've been blocked for only 2 days and it was horrible I wouldn't wish that on any of you even if we don't always get along)
(Um, when I decide. Everyone seems content to ya know. Live life in a town so far. Unless they wanna quest. And even then I won’t be giving out the tools to win easily. So bugger off. Go send Siris and be a hero if your so impatient. The others are having a good time.)
Siris:I swear I am very conflicted on whether I hate you or love you it's frustra- he was then cut of by Allayna clearing her throught she was in human form,protected by wards and holding her swordspear threatening Druella and he couldn't sense any demonic energy coming from her she was probably trying to prank Druella into thinking she's human so he then decided to play along which Allayna would hear his thoughts and mentally acknowledged it Siris:Allayna!? I thought you were dead!?Get out of here while you still can! Allayna:I'm to late to save you...only an honest death may cure you now
“Huh?...” Durella had a confused look on her face and pointed at Allayna. “Arn’t You the woman who wanted to be a dark priest?...Why are you threatening me? You should be spreading the love of the Fallen God.” Durella winked a bit as she was getting dressed.
She reverted back Allayna:Aww who told you?Now the prank is ruined.Well techicaly I didn't but I did willingly threw myself to the wolves because I wasn't satisfied with what I was doing-Aaaanyway I just wanted to let my brother know something very important feel free to listen as well she then told them about what happened Sitis:That's troubling news...I'm still binded you know.
(What about her mother If not then they should be drawing atention from uber god lady and be erased for their breaking the balance of things.Are they using some object to give themselves immortality like seath the scaleless and the primordial crystal and we have to smash it or something that's what it seams like) Allayna:Yeah no I'm afraid not they're immortal and impervious to anything and everything the source of their power is unknown here I've got the fight recorded here.she then summoned a projection stone which showed the fight with the hunter and how everything didn't effect him d̶u̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶c̶r̶e̶a̶t̶o̶r̶ ̶d̶e̶l̶i̶b̶e̶r̶a̶t̶e̶l̶y̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶h̶i̶m̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶u̶n̶b̶a̶l̶a̶n̶c̶e̶d̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶p̶o̶s̶s̶i̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶w̶i̶t̶h̶ ̶a̶ ̶w̶e̶a̶k̶n̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶w̶o̶n̶'̶t̶ ̶d̶o̶ ̶a̶n̶y̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶e̶ ̶h̶i̶m̶ ̶b̶e̶a̶t̶a̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶s̶l̶i̶g̶h̶t̶e̶s̶t̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶a̶ ̶h̶o̶r̶r̶i̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶a̶t̶t̶e̶m̶p̶t̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶e̶v̶e̶r̶y̶o̶n̶e̶ ̶t̶e̶a̶m̶ ̶u̶p̶ ̶m̶o̶r̶e̶ ̶e̶v̶e̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶r̶o̶u̶g̶h̶ ̶i̶t̶'̶s̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶ ̶g̶o̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶y̶i̶e̶l̶d̶ ̶a̶n̶y̶ ̶b̶e̶t̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶r̶e̶s̶u̶l̶t̶ ̶b̶e̶c̶a̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶c̶r̶e̶a̶t̶o̶r̶ ̶d̶e̶c̶i̶d̶e̶d̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶a̶k̶i̶n̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶a̶n̶ ̶e̶l̶e̶v̶e̶n̶ ̶y̶e̶a̶r̶ ̶o̶l̶d̶ ̶k̶i̶d̶ ̶w̶h̶o̶ ̶p̶o̶s̶t̶e̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶i̶r̶ ̶O̶C̶ ̶w̶h̶i̶c̶h̶ ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶a̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶e̶a̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶f̶l̶a̶s̶h̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶a̶ ̶r̶a̶c̶e̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶o̶n̶e̶ ̶s̶h̶o̶t̶ ̶b̶o̶t̶h̶ ̶o̶n̶e̶ ̶p̶u̶n̶c̶h̶ ̶m̶a̶n̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶s̶u̶p̶e̶r̶ ̶m̶a̶n̶ ̶w̶h̶i̶l̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶s̶i̶d̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶b̶l̶u̶e̶ ̶s̶u̶n̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶d̶e̶s̶t̶r̶o̶y̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶e̶n̶t̶i̶r̶e̶ ̶u̶n̶i̶v̶e̶r̶s̶e̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶e̶r̶a̶s̶e̶ ̶g̶o̶d̶s̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶f̶r̶e̶a̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶d̶e̶v̶i̶a̶n̶t̶ ̶a̶r̶t̶some reason (The MGE CONTEXT Is at Risk!)
(Comparing me to a kid just now?...Yep, for that I will deliver a painful blow to your character, remember this well. For I shall. As for the Demon Lord, duh. 24/7 smexing. Oh yeah, I will really do something evil to you so prepare yourself. It may be three months or a few days. But I will make you wish you keep silent. It’s not immortality, you are just used to winning almost all your fights easily. This time, I’m bringing in people that requires a well executed plan to kill)
Durella waved her hands as Shen saw this. “Oh dear, he seems really scary...I’m not a fighter, so I guess I have to pass.” She laughed a bit.
(Oh and to add on the god aspect, they now have no authority to be meddling as big as they did. And the balance ain’t broken, they kill monsters, does not mean they treat their citizens the same. Good for bad, balanced out. So too bad. Stop them yourself I feel you want to stop them. Oh wait, I made it so I can kill you if you wanna be a hero. Ohohohoho! You can’t do anything, you are powerless to stop them in a long scale battle. Continue to complain, it only fuels my love of evil)
(You do realize that was obviously satire and it's in strikethrouh text which means it isn't accurate or true it's blantently sheer exaggeration and should be considered null and void and not taken seriously so can you not punish me over something stupid?😅If you don't want me to joke about it then just say so geez.)
(He did get harmed, before he actually tried by breaking a seal. Seriously, He is not immortal. Nine of the hunters are but you keep bitching and moaning. Your the one who wanted all the good perks and everyone’s else’s is far more restrained then you. You ain’t got a right to complain.)
(He's a glass canon and everyone else is going to be given/taught some of his moves so he's not going to be the only one with cool abilities,and I'm not complaining the stuff in strikethrough was satire and exaggerated nonsense for a joke and should not be taken seriously because it's null and void-never happened so don't punish me over nothing)
(I mean, we didn't see much of her. That and admittedly I was interested to see if she had any interesting backstory like maybe a secret royal bloodline... I've been watching too much Attack on Titan ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Anyways, heading to bed. Night.)
Markus would get up with a yawn and started the morning with looking over at Fifi.
Siris:Can you agree not to tell her that Id Actually Gave you Permission To Do So Just To Learn valuable Intel on the enemy,she'd really would lose all respect for me and hate me forever,but then again once she'd become a mamono she would probably be happier but then again when a woman becomes a mamono their mindset gets changed-no forcefully overwritten with a different one,so when they say that they're happier how do we know if that's not the alterations to their mind that makes them say that,in Allayna's case she knew what she was doing and knew that this change is what she wants...
He then summoned a banana Siris:Lets pretend this is a human women's mind before monsterization,but when she becomes a mamono...he then dropped the banana on the ground and replaced it with a licking fruither mind is overwritten with one that would already have come to terms with and is happy with the physical changes their body has assumed so I figured out a way to temporarily fish out or recover their original mind set so that I could ask it whether or not the changes they had was for the better or worse after having the knowledge of what it feels like to be a mamono and the life They have been living.
Siris:What Im talking about isn't relevant to the offer I was just going off on a tangent,but I'm going to...(Mek,addiction is this worth it because Gaea probably will try again to take her out and get turned and that would really kill future plans)
(Than just don't have Gaea come after her. Also, he's choosing either saving his sister from becoming a Mamono vs helping to save possibly hundreds of thousands of innocent lives. I know blood is thicker than water but this is a no-brainer for me if I were you... Or if I was Siris.)
Markus would finish up eating and wait for Fifi to finish.
Durella’s grin widened. “Ok then, you wanna know the secret right? It’s simple. You see, that man holds a great amount of power. He is not the fastest but his power and defense looks to be at the point where he could kill me with a few well placed blows if not defended.
His seals are for his safety...And apparently a source to have more murderious fun...You see, if people simply ran around and went all out with all that power. Their bodies would break apart.
So, cleverly he uses advanced seals that only the user can activate which is himself. Which means he plans to adapt to severe increases of power each seal. So this means he can’t go all out at the beginning, so the time to get good hits in is To go all out yourself at the start...Or you are also a monster like him to get through his raw power...
Now, he seems to be highly resistant...If not immune to any sort of magic. So, don’t use magic. Use strong abilities. I won’t be able To do anything which is such a dissapointment...
As for what you can use...Well, I’m sure the people who go against them have developed ways to fight them...Maybe even tactics to beat one...
But that’s about all I can tell you! You will need to find the other missing peace soon yourself. But all I can say...To give a human such power...There must be a great Cost behind the scenes. My, what a dangerous person...Must be towering under all that clothing” Durella finished with a giggle.
Markus would look over at her before she told her story and listened and nodded. "Uh huh... Well, at least we know something useful on what we're going up against. Uh, good job." He wasn't used to handing out praise.
Siris:Why do all the Lilim look different from each other anyway expecially you and your albino wings,tail,and hair as well as your creepy eye gems and your face always hzs this look of extreme desire but in a more unsettling way...also what do you think of my sister?
Siris:Because they don't all come from the same family and when they do they only some differences can be noticed but you come from the same parents as your sister yet you have major differences a prime example is you and the queen of hearts which somehow also is an alice and what do your mean by that?
“Oh, easy. Directing blind rage to someone who never done anything terrible. You see, we Mamano don't kill. And here she is thinking we kill, and belives someone so easily without question to kill monsters and wants to kill me. Humans are always rushing, and she is one of them.” She wagged her finger.
Edward took a deep breath and kept his eyes up. "Hi... You are," He then stopped to think, "Lin, yes?" Once he finished, he waited for her to either be angry that he was wrong, or the opposite. He also found it odd that she called him 'sunshine knight', but he decided not to mention it.
Markus would place down his sketches on the table. It depicted assassin armor that was supposed to be easy to move in while also providing enough protection. Flipping through other pages showed holsters for multiple small weapons, the cape crossed out, and some sneaky hidden mechanical parts. It finally came to the last page where he had the armor how he wanted it, cape not included.
“Oh! Silly me. Your other sister!...Oh she is just a box waiting to be unwrapped by men.” Durella giggled.
“Uh...I don’t know. I would like to relax you know?...” She replied taking a sip of ale. “Besides, I try to avoid danger when I can. And you are one person who attracts danger...With that stunt you pulled. I rather not be near you for my own safety.” She stated.
Allayna:so you'd rather be riddled with gunfire?You may not know this but they were about to gun us down if we didn't do something so I Took PRECAUTIONARY actions and protected us from those hidden soldiers.
“Well, obviously they wanted the child...I’m not one to simply throw a kid to the wolves. But I rather leave it to the people who wanted to stay.” Riona spoke with a sigh. “I don’t need any more nonsense like battle...With you, you decided to attack them. As such labeled all of us an enemy to an entire nation...I don’t know about you...But I don’t wanna show my face around thanks to you...” She swirled her glass in her hands.
Allayna:You made the choice to leave the sidelines and take action,you could've done nothing and just declared your neutrality,hey Edward even took aim and wasn't declared a traitor but either way it's too late now.
"It's hard not to get spooked when-" Midway through his sentence, he stopped. Although he wanted to say something, he didn't. Now he just stood there, silently, trying to think of something else to say.
Edward noticed a look in Allayna's eyes. "When your supposed enemy appears behind you." He finished, placing one hand on his chest before looking forward. "How did she get behind me like that? I should have heard her, but, I didn't." His thoughts rolled through his mind as he stared at nothing, breathing remaining fast. "If it's that easy to sneak up on me, then..." This thought he didn't finish. It was something he didn't want to finish.
“Oh, just a customer scaring poor Edward. She just up and used magic to teleport behind him...Oh boy! Remember to take care, what if people have a bad heart condition. Please don’t do that. We take the care of our customers to the highest degree.” Lin wagged her finger some more.
Hearing his name felt odd. It then dawned on him that her memory is superb, making remembering names easy. He wished he could remember names that easily.
"Er, anyway. I must be on my way, now. Have something important to do." He would say before making his way to the exit. His heart was racing. A situation like that was one which he was not comfortable in.
Siris:Jokes on you...they already have been on fire! He was right the white coat and pants were obviously damaged by fire a long time ago the shorts were originally pants and the hooded coat was burned at ends yet was in good condition unlike the pants which wasn't salvaged as quickly,both were his fathers making it have great sentimental value,he was trying to change the subject
Markus would collect the bag. He felt like this way of giving payment was a bit passive-aggressive... Then again, Markus, in the end, was only worried about payment. Bright side, he now had a bag with his name on it. He'd then looked inside to see what kind of profit he made today.
"It's hard to forget about something so important." He said, going over to the armor looking it over. No doubt finely made. "Be expecting me tomorrow. Goodbye." He said, storing the armor in his bag and heading off back to the inn.
"Alright." Taking a gold coin, he'd give it to her. "I'll be back in a few days, can't keep them waiting any longer. Have a nice day." With that, he'd mount the horse and start to leave. Even though it was night, and he knew what was out there, he had been keeping them waiting long enough.
“A bit, She should be back to normal in the morning. My chicken soup should be enough to get her on her feet!” Lin laughed.
Looking over the map it would seem he had three options actually. He can follow the trail which would take him a few days, another path led through the forest but appeared to cut down the travel by half a day however there was a small note noting that the path was a bit dangerious...Then there was the small mountain region which would cut travel by a day. But everyone knew it was a much more dangerious journey.
Edward stared at the map, contemplating his options. Danger. This was nothing he liked to avoid. Though, the amount of time he'd spent stalling, he didn't know if they could hold out any longer. If they were still holding out, that is.
As much as he'd like the safest option, time was simply against him. The mountains. That was he was headed. And like that, he was off on his journey.
Edward would be weary of the setting sun, fear tingling on the back of his neck. He needed to distract himself. "I haven't given you a name," He said aloud, "Let's think..." That was one way. Names. Though he was pondering on the different names, he'd continuously look around.
"I just brought you some stuff." Alis said with a smile as she showed in her hands the package, bowl of chicken soup, and a piece of pumpkin pie. "I also had a small request for you but I understand if your too sick to do it."
Although Edward was thinking of names, he couldnt stop himself from coming upon a dilemma. "Light," He thought, "I can barely see... But light would make me easier to spot." It was like a double edged sword, with one side being a lot sharper than the other. Paranoia had found a nice place to settle in the back of his mind at this point.
Alis would go ahead and set the items down on the table in her room. "So, I know how your sister can see peoples pasts and you remember everything. So... Could you maybe look and see something that I've forgotten?"
“Oh, my sister is the one who remembers everything. I’m the one who can see. I know, very confusing...The one who jokes, and flaunts her body is the one who remembers things. That’s Lin, I Rin am the more calmer. Buts that’s besides the point. What do you want to know about your past?” She asked.
Durella laughed. “Sorry, But I’m not a fan of being a fourth wife. I want my man to look only at me after all.” She replied.
Speaking of light, as Edward continued forward the trail got more narrow. However he soon saw a warm glow of a fire up ahead.
"Well, it's about that Order soldier that's been around here lately. Edward. It's strange because we both swear that we've seen each other before but we can't remember a single thing. So I was wondering if you could help with that."
Upon seeingg the light, many thoughts surged through Edward's head. However, he quickly stopped. "Fire," He thought, "Unknown territory. Could be anything... Alright, breath. Check it out from afar." He told himself, slowly dismounting from the horse. Grabbing a rope from his pack, he'd tie the horse to a nearby rock. He also left his two packs beside said rock before starting to make his way toward the fire, crouching as he got closer. His intention was to not be seen, so he'd do his best to stay quiet and hidden whilst trying to get a better look at whoever- or whatever was near the fire.
“Take a shower once in a while. Even a normal monster can smell the stink on you.” She spoke.
Rin nodded. “Of course, just let me look into your eyes and that should tell me everything.”
A smart idea, as Edward approached the light up ahead. He could see it was indeed a campfire up ahead. There sat a lone figure in simple leather, however the glow illuminated it. It was a woman, not human as her arms and feet were reptilian in nature. Along with a big green tail. She looked like she was cooking some food.
Rin looked into Alis’s eyes, after for a moment she stood there unmoving until she eventually blinked in surprise. “W-Woah...How Strange...For some reason parts of your memory...Was blurry. Like something was actively stopping me...Or perhaps something put in place to impede me...Well...Anyways...I thought I saw the faint outline of that knight.”
"Hmm... This isnt good." Edward whispered to himself before attempting to pull out his map, which wasn't there. It was in his pack. Getting up, he'd start to make his way back to his when his foot caught, causing him to fall forward. Despite this, he managed to stay on his feet, though he now stood in silence with one hand over his mouth. Noise. He didnt know how much he made, he just stared forward in silence, waiting for something to happen. Hoping for no reaction.
(Ignore Abyss on that. He Is just salty he could not be a hero this time.)
Rin gave a small sneeze and nodded. “Take care then.”
As Edward has a small tumble, the noise in the silent night seemed to catch the woman’s attention a bit as she looked in her general direction. He was still shrouded by darkness. “Come out. I know you’re out there.” The woman seemed to state like she knew he was there. Of course this was simply a small trick. In truth, this was to see if anyone was there or not.
Siris:I wonder how order boy is doing,maybe he already bit the dust...now I'm curious GOA then got out the seer stone and began to view Edward to see what has become of himoh he's still hasn't been captured yet...what dumb luck...
Edward would turn. It seemed he was deceived by the trick. His breath would be fast, but quiet. Slowly, he stepped forward. He wasn't prepared for a situation like this, and his image of mamono weren't the best. Of course, exposed in the light, he looked like a deer in the headlights. Thoughts of what might happen played through his head, but he tried to ignore then. He simply waited for a reaction, keeping his arms ready to grab his bow.
“Oh, that actually worked for once.” The woman spoke surprised that there was actually someone there. “Anyways, you don’t look like you came here to kill me. If you did you would have tried to kill me from afar. Come, take a seat. I’m not going to do anything yet.” She motioned.
Edward looked over his shoulder for a moment, "Yet? What is that supposed to mean?" He thought as his breath remained fast. It took him a few moments, but he'd slowly walk over to the fire. Judging from his look, to the way he walked, it wasn't hard to tell that he was paranoid and scared. Taking a seat on the opposite side of the fire, he'd say nothing and look at the fire, but he was watching for any moves she might pull.
She plucked a kebab from the fire and handed it to him. “Only thing you have to worry about is that’s its wild rabbit. Eat up.” She spoke with a small smile. “It’s not often humans travel through the mountains. Stories of dragons and all that. So you must be rather bold.”
"Quite the opposite, actually..." Edward would explain before digging into the meat. It seemed that the wild rabbit fact hadn't bothered him. Then he realized his Order crest was visible, though if she gad seen it or not, he didn't know. Opening his mouth, it appeared as though he might say something else. "I cant say that." He thought to himself before finishing the kebab.
Edward would sit there in silence. His heart felt like a jackhammer, not that he knew what that was... Anyways, to him it couldn't get worse. "...W-What else?" He'd finally ask before attempting to control his breath, which was currently zooming.
“Well, there might be a young fledgling dragon living. But that’s some idle gossip floating around.” She spoke rather casually that a dragon was around and about. “As for more specific things...Maybe some harpies...some Gnomes...I think some Golem...Yeah, that’s about all I know.”
Edward would run one of his hands through his hair, his breathing remaining unsteady. This just sounded worse and worse. However, he chose this path. It was his own doing. "Are they in abundance?" Was his follow up question. Maybe he could lessen the blow knowing they weren't common... Or maybe the complete opposite would happen.
“Your in luck, they are not in every inch of this place. Just a pair of Wyverns, lone Golem and Gnomes are easy to avoid I feel you keep an eye out for their forms sleeping. As for the dragon, as long a small your not carrying anything valuable you will be safe...If you run into her just feed her ego. Dragons like that.” The woman replied taking a bite out of her own food now.
"I see... Thank you." Edward said, his breathing calming down a bit. He was thankful for the hospitality, yet confused at the same time. However, he did not want to push his luck, so he stayed quiet after this.
(Hey guys, Life got a little hectic for me there for a while.)
A small pinprick of light appeared, however it was gone as soon as it appeared. However at the spot where the lighted had been there was a briliant flash of light and the sound of an explosion. There in a circle of blackened rocks, was a kneeling human form. "And now I can't see, great." The man groaned.
(I was going for a location around Edward, just fyi)
Edward quickly stood, taking his bow out whilst looking around shakily. "What was that?!" He asked loudly, and he seemed like a nervous wreck and paranoid as he tried to find whatever made such a noise in the darkness. But it was darkness, so trying to find anything was nigh impossible, and so he peered around nervously...
He Jumped, away from the source of the voice, "Who are you and where did you come from!!??" He as he landed from the short jump he staggered and groaned in pain once more. He moved his hand to the hilt of a sword at his waist.
"Something's up with my leg." He stated, still on his feet but favoring the other leg. He was begining to be able to see somewhat. Not much more than outlines, and whatever else the moon and stars would allow. The he had released he hilt of his sword though his hand hovered near it.
"I could look at it if you want. I also know the way to the closest town but it's about a half day journey." The outline depicted a tall woman but... It looked like she was wearing some kind of armor going off of the outline.
