Kyle and Nina walked into a circular room that bared small wooden stools around a giant map of the world. On the other side, two guards watched them at the door and two appeared behind them, pushing them forward.
The door opened and out came a quiet-looking man with glasses and a pile of scrolls under his arm. He dropped them over the table--some rolling to Kyle's side--and took a deep breath. "Busy is always a prime minister," he said, "I am James Silton. You'll speak with..."
James did not finish his sentence, as he and the guards suddenly bowed as a large man came through the door. The man rubbed his puffy beard as he looked at Kyle and Nina across the table.
They stood immediately and bowed their heads to the man that was obviously king.
"Do you not know how to greet a king" he said, "you murderous outsiders!"

Kyle kept a hand on Nina's arm when she was about to retort. "Im sorry if that dis pleasured you." Kyle said quietly but his voice was firm. "But since we are not your subjects, I believe it is irrelevant how we greet you."
"On the contrary I think it is very relevant." The King spat. "But lets get to the point. Why did you kill my messenger?"
"I didn't." Kyle said. "In fact I wasn't aware that you had sent one till you informed me, he was killed."
"Incompetence on your part." The King said contemptuously.
"Negligence on yours." Kyle rebuked mildly, "Unless of course you intended that."
"Are you accusing me of something?" The King demanded.
Kyle said quietly, "I could assume the messenger was a spy but I don't want to. I want to give you the benefit of the doubt. Just like I ask you to do the same when I say it wasn't me who killed your messenger and it wasn't me who insulted your crew. I was in another country then and whoever impersonated me did a very thorough job."
"A likely story." The King snorted. "You're lying."
Kyle's mouth hardened into a thin line and his fists tightened but he forced himself to speak calmly, "I am not lying. I dont want to go to war. War will devastate our people and the lands for years to come. I know your country is in need of resources and I can think of dozens of ways we can make this work for both of us without resorting to violence. "
"Dont look down on us." The King thundered. "We are in no need of your pity."
Kyle opened his mouth but suddenly he caught a slight movement in the corner of the room. Suddenly yells filled the room.
"Hankyo." Kyle commanded loudly. A dark shape shot out of the ground and raced at the man raising his sword to behead a small man. Within moments the sherei stood besides Kyle again, a broken sword in its mouth. The small man still cowering and the general blinking as he looked at what remained of a sword in his hand.
"What is the meaning of this?" Came the King's voice from behind a group of generals that had gathered around to protect their King..
Nina had her weapon out and looked as shocked as Kyle felt. "Havoc." Kyle muttered in astonishment, "What are you doing here?"
"I have something to give to Andres Steel." Havoc said from the ground, looking sullen. He was supposed to have been unnoticed. But that damned soldier had seen him.
"Its me." Said a general who alone had not moved from his position besides the King's chair, though he had his sword out. He walked towards Havoc. "What have you that is so important that you would come to the King's quarters?" Andres Steel said sharply. "Your fate will rest on your answer."
"Now wait a moment." Kyle said. "That man is my citizen. I will not-"
"I have something important alright." Havoc interrupted Kyle, looking sly. And he handed over the documents to Andres Steel. The general looked at them, then at Havoc, then at Kyle and then walked over to the king and whispered something.

The king's eyes had opened wide when he heard what had just been handed to his general. His face quickly returned to the stony, chizzled face he had before. He whispered a few words to Andres and the general left through the door behind. The king now faced his attention back towards Kyle.
"I have just received your capitals defensive plans." he said

"Excuse me?" Kyle said politely thinking the King had gone mad.
The King was suddenly very relaxed, he leaned back, gazed at Kyle as if he was some very interesting object.
"You heard me." He said with hardly hidden glee.
"But that's impossible." Kyle objected hotly. "The plans are locked safe-" He turned his head looked at Nina who looked quite green.
"Havoc...stole...them..." She whispered.
"WHAT?" Kyle thundered. "HOW? WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?"
Nina was mumbling but Kyle didnt listen he rounded on the King. "Then I guess you'll do the decent thing and give them back."
"No." The King said, a satisfied smile on his face.
Kyle gritted his teeth but tried to speak calmly, "If you are thinking of attacking-"
"I am not." The King said seriously. "Whatever you may think, I do not wish for war. I know the consequences of such an action. I'll be honest with you Kyle Teef. I think you are a liar but a peaceful one."
Eh? Kyle thought numbly. The King was speaking, "Despite the fact that we got off on the bad foot, I think we should trust each other.
I'll let it go that you killed my messenger and trust you that you will be honest in your dealings with me in the future. Just as you should "trust" me that I will not use these documents as anything other than safeguard....against any foul play."
Kyle swallowed hard, his hand shaking as he ran it through his hair. "Then you will not attack. You will call back your fleet?"
"Yes." The King said. "I want peace between our worlds. After all..." The King looked at Kyle, "With the civil war going on in your backyard. You have much on your hands. And I am a peaceful man."
No war. Kyle though as relief swept his body. The documents are a small price to pay for peace. He tried to reassure himself.
"I trust you." Kyle said and looked at the King.
"Then I trust you." The King replied.
Nina watched in bated breath as the King descended from his throne and then the two men shook hands.

Havoc was trying to sneak off the imperial ship but was caught once again, this time by Kyle's sherei.
"Oh no." Havoc groaned as he tried to free his leg from the giant creature's mouth. "Let go you big oaf." Havovc yelled kicking the animal in the face. To his horror, Kyle exited from the King's room. His eyes focused on Havoc and suddenly the thief/assassin felt fear. He began kicking with new vigor but the animal merely dragged him and took him across to Kyle's ship and dumped him at Kyle's feet.
Kyle grabbed Havoc and hauled him up to face him, the man's feet dangling in air. "Why?" Kyle asked grimly.

"Shhh. It's a secret" Havoc murmured.
Kyle couldn't help but punch the son-of-bitch in the face. It immediately flattened Havoc to the ground, the nose broken, bleeding. Kyle sought to do more injury, but was restrained by Nina.
"Kyle!" she screamed with a unbelievable horror "What's wrong with you?!"
"This bastard!" he turned and screamed. "War is on us at both sides! Thousands are dying! After 20 long years of peace, we are on the brink of war! And he...all he can care about is himself! He sold his country for whatever price he wanted!"
"Why would I cause a war in my own country?" Havoc asked.
'"why would you?" Nina asked, calm
"Because...I'm a selfish bastard."
That was it. In those few words Kyle snapped. It all came out; The frustration, the sadness, the disappointment, the hate. He tore himself from Nina's arms and violently bludgeoned the assassin.
He struck Havoc numerously, staining his face blue and purple, and taking ill-note of his fading eyes. He would kill the fool if not for Nina summoning the guards to restrain him.
As he slouched in the guards arms, in that split moment of reflection, he had realized what he had just done. His eyes gasped and he collapsed to his knees; and could do nothing but curse! He cursed Havoc at the top of his lungs and his eyes teared like broken dams.
"Even the prez looses his cool..." Havoc said with his few remaining minutes of conscience. A laugh. "You're still as ignorant as ever."

"Explain. Dammit. Or I'll swear I'll-" Kyle yelled at the assassin sprawled at his feet. Before he could finish his sentence, Nina screamed. It was pure instinct that had him ordering his sherei to act. Havoc disappeared underground just as man jumped down with mind numbing agility, his sword piercing the floorboard deep exactly where Havoc had been. The man withdrew his sword and jumped up before any of them could act, his body curling into a graceful arch before landing on top of the captain's station. He stood erect, dressed all in black, his face hidden under the mask he wore, Kyle could see his eyes, sharp and piercing as he surveyed the ship, searching.
He's here to kill Havoc. Kyle thought and as his sherei launched after the man, he had already jumped into the water and disappeared.
Kyle and Nina and the guards raced towards the railing and looked down but the water showed no movement. It was still and calm. The man had vanished.
Kyle waited a little longer than summoned his sherei that had Havoc. The sherei appeared carrying an ashen faced Havoc.
"That bastard ordered me dead." He mumbled, dazed.
Kyle reached down and grabbed Havoc's shirt, shaking him so hard the man's head wobbled like a rag doll's. "Thats the second time Ive saved your ass you sorry little..."
"Yea, yea. Thanks. Guess I owe you huh."
"You bet you do." Kyle spat contemptuously.
"How about I tell you all I know." Havoc grinned.
*****
An hour later the captain hurried to Kyle's room. "You called sir?" He asked respectfully.
"Take me to Sadoyus. Quickly." Kyle said. As the captain left, he summoned his sherei, "Go to Furen and search for Ken and Altec. Tell them to return to Azuriya. Immediately." He ordered. The sherei bowed his head and disappeared.
Nina was leaning against the door. "You think it's as bad as darkness?" She asked casually, trying to keep the fear and worry out of her voice.
"If not worse." Kyle mumbled and rubbed his head. "The worse thing is this guy works in the shadows. I have no idea WHAT Im fighting against."
"What now?" Nina asked.
"I have to stop the fight in Sadoyus." Kyle said determindely.

Yumi began to read the boy's mind. the bats flew off to go and get something to eat. after awhile Yumi got tired and put the boy into a coma like state and got up and wondered towards a cliff and stared out at the ocean. hmm that was interesting thought Yumi as she thought about what she had just learned from the boy. the bat that flew off came back with some type of paper, it flew to Yumi and Yumi looked at the bat in surprise and said "what did you take and where did you get it". the bat just flapped it wings. Yumi took the paper and stared at it.

Havoc was locked in a room. Nina stationed at the door.
"Yo Nina. Let me out. I need fresh air."
"No." Nina said shortly.
"Kyle doesnt trust me. After all I did for him." Havoc said in an injured tone. "Spied for him. Lied for him. Risked my neck for him."
"You did all that for yourself." Nina said disgustedly. "You betrayed your country. Thats low even for you Havoc."
"But after what I told Kyle, I believe I evened the score for taking the docs." Havoc said. "Come on...Just a walk around the ship."
But Nina didnt relent and left Havoc locked in the room as they headed for Azuriya.

Leonora studied Ethan as he fought with Cara. He had a natural grace that few fighters possessed. he also brought out a new side in Cara that she had never seen. Leonora smiled as Cara fussed with a cut that she had dealt Ethan during the practise and grinned when she saw Dashton in the corner, glowering.
"Take it easy." Leonora said as she passed Dashton, patting his shoulder. "She's not into him."
"Doesnt look like it." Dashton muttered as he studied Cara kiss Ethan's forehead. He clenched his fists.
"No..." Leonora said amused. "Her feelings towards him are more maternal than anything else." When it looked like Dashton didnt believe her she laughed and said, "You'll see."
"Where to?" Ajnabi asked
"Norra." Leonora said with a smile.

Havoc sighed and sat against the back wall of the cell. They have no idea what's going on, he thought. Oh how it sucks to be forced quiet with the threat of death.

Jess leaned against Natalie, feeling weak, her eyes were closed. Natalie held her mother close as Tyler rowed deeper into the ocean. They had rented the small boat on Jess's command. Now they were rowing out into the ocean.
"This is enough." Jess whispered. Tyler stopped rowing. Natalie and Tyler watched as Jess stood up and stepped into the ocean.
Both Tyler and Natalie watched wide eyed as Jess walked lightly into the water then spread her arms wide. Then she moved her arms as if playing an invisible harp.
A strong gale began to blow. Natalie and Tyler gripped the rocking boat tightly and suddenly Natalie gasped and pointed straight ahead.
"What what?" Tyler said looking around but he couldnt see anything.
"You cant see them?" Natalie said and Tyler shook his head. Natalie watched ahead at the giant figures surrounded all around them.
When Jess spoke, Tyler couldnt understand what she was saying but Natalie could, "She's telling them to look for Ethan..." Natalie whispered. "IF he's alive or..." She swallowed hard.
Tyler gulped and looked at where Natalie was staring, "He's going to be okay..." Tyler whispered.
The strong winds blew again and then the giants vanished. Jess came back and and Natalie helped her mother sit down in the boat.
"What now?" Natalie whispered.
"Now we wait." Jess said softly.

Ethan leaned against the rail, his face thoughtful as he stared out into the ocean.
He was going to go home after the pirates made a stop in Norra. Pirates. He thought and shook his head. It was hard to believe these guys were the deadly, greedy looters that hunted the seas. Friends. Thats what they had become. Ethan thought with a faint smile.
Suddenly a fast and furious wind began to blow. The ship rocked and Ethan gripped the side of the ship. He was used to the sea being moody. So he didnt think much of it, suddenly the wind became gentle and surrounded him. Ethan's eyes widened as he smelled roses. "Mom..." He whispered and reached out his hand. The wind ruffled his hair, circled him and then the ocean was calm again.

Dare sat in his quarters, still pissed that he had to attend that meeting, but he was unaffected my the news of Perry’s death. Dare looked out the large windows, “It sucks that someone beat me to Perry, I wanted to be the one to kill him” said Dare with a frown. Dare heard a knock at his door and a frightened voice yelling, “Captain, we are under fire from a Mytlon Naval Ship”. Dare casually walked over to the door and opened it, then his eyes turned red as he looked at the crewman before him. “Don’t bother me with such trivial things” said Dare, then all of the sudden, the crewman’s head exploded and his body feel on the ground, lifeless. Dare walked past the dead man and looked over at the enemy ship, “This is perfect, I need to work off some stress anyways” said Dare as he looked over at Broga. Dare and jumped up and landed on one of Broga’s large swords, “Alroy, get the ship closer to them” said Dare, then Broga swung his sword and launched Dare towards the enemy ship.

A lone woman swam far out into the ocean, she turned her head when she heard the sound of a boat. Her beautiful face twisted into a slow smile and made it look sinister and less human. She turned and with a grace matched by few, dove into the ocean.
****
Aventh sat on the small ship as the sailor sailed towards Mytlon. Suddenly the ship started to rock dangerously.
"Strange, there is no strong wind...." The sailor said confused.
"WATCH OUT!" Aventh yelled but it was too late. With an ear splittling shriek the ship was torn to bits. Aventh was flung far into the ocean.
He landed in the water and looked for the sailor. Has he drowned? The mage wondered when he could not see the man.
No....eaten!!!! Aventh realised when he saw the serpent.

Posted 11/1/09
"GANBROU!!" Aventh yelled at the top of his lung standing on the water looking around "GANBROU!" Still no sign, Aventh concentrated on the serpent in front of him "1..2...3... DAMN! 9 heads, it couldn't possibly be a hydra?"
One of the serpents heads looked at Aventh and bolted at him crashing into the water making a large splash. Aventh appeared high above the serpents heads, wings of fire growing out of his back and helping him fly over the heads "Now what?" thought Aventh, but before he had time to decide one of the others serpents heads turned to him and opened its large mouth and lighting shot forth from it, Aventh chanted a quick spell and barely got a barrier up in front of him deflecting the lighting attack.
"Freeze!" Aventh shouted at the head that just shot lightning around him, Magic runes appeared around the hydra's neck freezing it in place
"dammit" Aventh cursed the situation and shot towards the hydra head that was frozen by his seal, he landed on top of its head "first to see if you truly are a Hydra" Aventh chanted a spell and the hydras head and neck started to burn and decay away to nothing, Aventh flew around for a bit until moments later the head shot back out from the main body "So, you are the legendary Hydra... this is going to be harder than I thought"
