Cara and the twins headed deeper into the unmapped forest. The trees were as tall as castle walls and blocked out the sky. It only got darker as they continued. But once they reached that point were the light had been banished and the dark covered everything, they came upon a strange sight.
Before the trio were bubble shaped plants, growing off vines and trunks and such, that glew with phosphorescent colors: red, blue, violet, green.
The twins were amazed and let out a cheerful scream. They ran to the flowers, taken aback when they collapsed in on each other and took the light with them.
"Taryn! Tyrone!" Cara called out. "Are you okay? Were are you?"
"We're fine! No need to worry!" They said.
"That's good." she said. 'Stay still, I'll come to you!" Cara tiptoed through the dark, feeling for the twins and wishing for her eyes to adjust to the dark. She finally got a hold of something soft, thinking it was one of the twins, she tightened and yanked! But they only thing that met her was a hard strike to the face, bloodying her nose and knocking her down.
"What the hell!?" she cried out.
"Get out!" a voice called. It sounded not like the twins, but like a much older woman.

'What are we-'

'Doing here?'

Taryn and Tyrone finished each other's sentence, and stared questioningly at the woman.

In one swift movement, Cara flipped up and had her knives out, her eyes hard as she stared into the darkness, listening for sounds, behind her she heard someone call out her name and she raised her head and said, "Here."
She heard a movement in front of her and threw out her chain, catching something but the person twisted out of it.
Suddenly she felt an arm cross across her neck and hold her tight as a voice spoke harshly into her ear, "I dont take lightly to trespassers."
Before the girl could make a move, light blinded them all. Cara felt herself being lifted and flown back. She landed on the ground in a crouch and looked up to see Leonora standing, staring grimly at the elf, the twins were in a heap by her feet. "You okay?" She asked as she lifted them up, squinting as her eyes got used to the light again.

What stood before them was an Elf girl! But not the fair looking elf girl from myth. This one's skin was brown and her hair pink; her eyes had a ferocious aura within them, piercing through your skin and scaring your soul.
They stood looking at each other for a second, before the Elf ran from them. She disappeared behind the logs and by the time Cara and Leonara reached over it, she had vanished.
'What was that all about?" Leonara asked.
"I don't know. She said something about territory. But, Elves aren't territorial like orcs and goblins."
"If she is an Elf, she's no Elf I've seen!"
Suddenly the two heard a rustling from above. They clenched their weapons and searched for the source of the sound.
'Look out!" the twins yelled as a storm of arrows came raining down.

A wall of water froze above them as a crude defence, and they turned to go.

The Twins, however, did not make it out of range before they were seized and dragged backwards.

Another wave of arrows headed their way.
"CHIRP." The baby eagle shrieked in rage and fluttered out of Ethan's pocket in an attempt to peck the evil elf to death. How dare that wretched creature attack his master!!!
Ethan cursed softly and grabbed the eagle before he flew too far and stuffed him back in the pocket and dove behind a tree just as the arrows rained down around him.
The rest of the crew had taken cover too.
"Chirp?" The eagle said, his small head poking out of the pocket as Ethan crouched behind the tree and tried to peer out without the arrows hitting him.
"She's got the kids." Cara said as she landed noiselessly next to him. "The others are going after her. You come with me." She grabbed him and jumped back and out of harm's way.
They both landed a distance off and Ethan grinned at her, "Who'd have thought pirates could be so noble?" He teased and Cara grinned back.
"Havent you realised we aren't your average pirates? We got class as well as cutlass."
Ethan chuckled then they both fell silent as they waited for the elf to make another move.

Ravani took her chance to hoist the vine trap that had caught the twins up. She struck them over the head in the net and slung them over her shoulder.
She tossed a brown bag from her belt which immediately exploded and realized a blinding light. The trespassers were both surprised and blinded.

Ravani jumped from tree to tree. She shortly arrived at a campsite, flat from years of habitation and a rushing stream nearby. a tepee shaped tent and fire were set up as well.
Ravani used the tip of her arrows to cut the vine net and let the two captives free.
When the twins awoke, there hands were tied and Ravani kneeled over the fire. "You're awake" she said.

'Of course we are awake,' the two said together. 'We have our eyes open and are alert. What else would that be?'

The fire crackled a little, and Ravanni turned to it. Taryn and Tyrone glared at her, and worked their fingers through the vines tying their hands. In about five minutes, they were free, and Tyrone absently stroked Taryn's hair.

'And no, we are not planning on leaving, we're sure you have something planned if we try. But being tied up is slightly annoying, don't you agree?' the Twins said, watching her wide-eyed.

Ravani grabbed the two by the collars and held them over the ground. "You're right. You can't escape because the moment you do the traps would get you! I was hoping you'd make a run for it, watch the look on your surprised face when you end up in a pit of spikes!" she let them fall. 'But you're smarter than the other fools who dare to enter my territory! I'll tell you what," Norra set her bow, readying an arrow, pointing it between the twins, "since this is my last arrow I might as well use it. Here's what you're going to do. Either I kill one of you now, or you both runaway alive. then again the traps might get you. But better than watching your sibling's forehead with an arrow straight through it, don't you think? Now choose!"

'I think that...'

'We'll run...'

'But...'

'How...'

'Did you know we were siblings?' they ended together.

The pirates tried chasing Ravani but within seconds, they lost her in the thick trees.
"Dammit." Leonora said, "They're gone."
Dashton looked troubled, "Cara wont be happy." He muttered. They trudged back to where Cara was sitting with Ethan.
"WHAT?" Cara cried. "But they're only kids. We cant leave them on their own."
"I'm not sure its wise to go after them right now." Leonora frowned and Cara fell silent. Angering Leonora was not a good move. EVER.
"It's getting dark. We'll try looking for them some more in the morning. Otherwise...." She let her sentence trail off and the crew nodded. If they were unable to find the twins by tomorow. The kids were on their own.

The Twins sprinted through the trees, and appearing a water sheen that hovered a few inches off the ground, avoiding the pressure traps. They ducked a vine intent on strangling them and dissolved the sheen of water into the air. They continued to run, the grass growing up around their feet and ankles, trying to trip them over and suffocate them as they lay on the ground. Damn carnivorous grass to hell. Calling a new water sheen, they jumped onto it, pulling the water from the soil and plants, moving quickly over them as the plants turned yellow and died. Taryn shrieked and they jumped as a tree root reached through the water to grab at their ankles. The water tightened around it, and the root withdrew as the landed back on the water shimmer. They dissolved the sheen of water again, and sprinted through a harmless looking clearing. They tripped over a tree brach, and this seemed to be a trigger for a sudden storm of arrows attacking them on all sides. They ducked, and surrounded themselves with a bubble of water, running harder, flinching every time an arrow hit the edge of the water and bounced off.

'Remind me,' panted Tyrone as they ran lept over another vine.

'Never to-' continued Taryn, stumbling and garbbing onto him to steady herself.

'Antagonise an elf ever again!' They jumped over another rock, and Taryn shrieked again as she pointed behind them. It was rolling after them, slowly gathering speed. Just in time, they grabbed a vine a hoisted themselves upwards as the rock rumbled underneath them. The vine wrapped around their wrists and pulled them upwards. They burnt the vines, dropping heavily to the floor. They pulled themselves upright, and brought another gloss of water, too exhausted to run any more. They ducked under another vine, and straightened up, only to ride into a tree.

The tree did nothing.

'Trust us to run into the only thing that wasn't even a trap,' Tyrone muttered as he pulled Taryn to her feet from where she was lying on the floor.

'That darn hurt,' added Taryn, jumping back onto the water. 'Let's go.'

They burst from the forest into a clearing, falling off the water and tumbling to their feet, ending back to back for more dangers.

'Who's there?' came a voice, and Cara appeared, sword drawn. She swung it towards the Twins.

'Hey, hey, Cara,' they said, panting hard. 'Are you trying to kill us?'

Cara stopped and the others jumped down and around the twins.
"Are you okay?" Cara asked looking down at the twins.
"Is it really the twins?" Badlah asked, raising an eyebrow. "It could be imposters!"
"ITS US." The twins said.
"How did you get away?" Ethan asked
"Is the elf coming.? Leonora asked.
Everyone fell quiet as they listened for sounds.

Suddenly everyone stiffened, "Someone is coming." Ajnabi said.

Oliver, Tarrog and Carin where all low now, they herd some voices up ahead and where ready for anything
"Oliver don't you have something to see whats up ahead?" Carin asked in a low whisper
"Already on it" Oliver said as he took out small metallic ball with runes etched onto its surface, at the same time he put small lens to one of his eyes, the lens turned black concealing his right eye, he threw the ball in the direction of the noise

The little ball stopped behind a tree and started to move around, soon enough four legs popes out and a small head popped out also with something resembling a camera, the runes started to glow and the bot moved around and peeked around the tree to see who was there

Olivers eye lens lit up showing him images of what the bot saw, there was a group of people who seemed to be pirates kneeling as quitly as they could
"There seems to be a group, maybe there lost?" Oliver said as he took off the lens and the small bot came back to him
"Maybe there lost like us?" Carin suggested
"Where not lost kids, we are adventuring" Tarrog said with a smile and stood up
"I think there is a slight difference Tarrog" Oliver said
"Lies! Adventuring, and being lost, its all the same where I'm from" Tarrog said as he walked int the direction of the area the other group was when he approached the tree he shouted out "How do you do? fellow Adventurers!" in a cheerful voice, he was also preparing a few drink for his newly found friends
Oliver and Carin followed behind him shaking there heads.

"Elves?" whispered Kehkashan as they heard the faint noises up ahead.

Ajnabi saw the small ball up ahead, just before it scuttled into a bush to spy on them. "Not elves." He said grimly.

Suddenly a loud greeting met their ears, shattering the serenity of the place. "How do you do fellow adventurers?!"
They all turned to see a dwarf.

"Wha..." Kehkashan said, he had been expecting a much taller person.
"Would you all like some drinks?" The dwarf chortled loudly and not waiting for answers started handing around drinks.
"Dont drink that." The girl behind him warned.
Everyone quickly lowered their drinks.
"Ruddy Brilliant." Badlah said as he drained his drink in one gulp. His eyes were watering and he patted the dwarf on the shoulder.
"What's your name? My friend."
"Tarrog." The dwarf said and poured him another drink. "Yours?"
"Badlah." The man replied with a grin.

"Hi Im Carin." The girl said.
"Hello. Im Leonora. This is my Crew." She gestered to the people behind who introduced themselves.
(Ajnabi, Kenhakshan, Dashton, Cara, Ethan, Seeker and the twins)
