Elgar heard from the travelers that the answer he seeks may lie at Azuriya. So the next day, Elgar left the sands of Sadoyus to the islands of Azuriya

From the distance it looked as if there was an approaching sandstorm. Shekul jumped and slid down a high rising sand dune. He landed then took off again.

The sun was dipping towards the horizon; the hot air cooling as a day changed to evening.

The coast line came into view and Shekul ran along the edge of it, kicking up a spray as he ran. He finally skidded to a stop near the edge of a cliff.

"Shall I? I shall." Shekul leapt off and jumped into the cool waters below. He landed with a large splash and came up, grinning. He swam to the shore.

He lay on the shore, breathing easily as he looked at the sky; feeling relaxed after his usual 100 mile evening jog as he waited for his clothes to dry.

After Shekul lay there for a time long enough for his clothes to be nearly dry, a rather short skinny man, Kit, approached. There was nothing threatening in his demeanor whatsoever. The man slowly walked along the edge of the shore.

"Aren't the sands beautiful this time of year?" Kit asked.

He approached Shekul and stood over him with a friendly smile on his face.

"Then again, you wouldn't know. You run through it so fast it has to be impossible to see... that was quite a spectacle you put on. But be careful. Something like that might attract... the wrong attention" Kit said.

When kit said that last part, his smile changed such a slight amount that Shekul couldn't be sure if it actually had, but he noticed.

Shekul turned his head and gave a serene smile, "Actually, I never fail to notice what I want to see," Shekul said and sat up. Kit's demeanor still seemed relaxed but there was slight tension building up in the air between the two men.

Shekul surveyed the other man with open interest; his own face looking gentle and non aggressive.

"Besides, I thrive on the element of danger, " Shekul said with an easy smile.

"Hehe... I see. Then you must be quite powerful in your own right," Kit said in a mocking tone while keeping his calm composure.

After a short stare down between the two men Kit's facial expression changed drastically and the air was suddenly thick. The look on his face was that of a sadistic maniac. (For lack of a better term)

"Shall we?" Kit said, suggesting a fight. "If so, Be forewarned that I fight for keeps,"

"What the fucking demom shit was up with that witch! This missy doll acted all high and mighty like everyone was her slave and on top of that she managed to put you under her spell and let you act like a love-struck human with no own will! Alone for that could I strangle her little throat till her face gets blue!" Loki snarled. Pacing forth and back through the room they stayed in trampling on the poor carpet under his feet he lowered his voice and mumbled all different kinds of curses.
"Don't let it get near to you. If you didn't notice this woman had some strange power. Every men in the bar was attracted to her and she used this ability to get me. It surprises me that you weren't affected by it. Instead you did pretty mess her up, brother." Rowan was lying on the bed and stared at the ceiling. He had little spoken since they left the bar and came to this Inn. Now Rowan's eyes searched Loki's and his eyebrows narrowed. "But why weren't you affected by her? Even I couldn't resist her and I have seen lots of beauties in my life."

Loki didn't say anything and looked away from Rowan, turning his back to him. "Doesn't matter why, the only thing that matters is what she wanted from you and that we should leave here as soon as possible so that we won't meet them again. Even though I must say that the guy wasn't that bad of a fight."  His voice sounded, for a moment, rather unusual than himself. Loki turned around when he heard a quiet snor behind him and saw Rowan sound alseep.
He went at Rowan's side and smiled softly. If he can sleep so easily then it can't be this bad. Sighing he walked to the couch and too fell easily asleep.

Leon sat in a dusty dry bar, a hand on his head little out groans every now and then "Whats the matter?" Shinra finally asked after listening for a good 5mins now "You have been groaning like that ever since we found this bar and decided to take a stop"

"I dont know... I have this massive head ache, and I feel like I can see this almost translucent energy floating around me every once in a while... My vision is also blurry at long distances" Leon said with yet another groan

"Hmmm... maybe you just need glasses then? and you are pretty dehydrated, your probably just seeing things, you should get some water in you" Shinra said from her sheath.

"Ah, maybe that's it" Leon said as he motioned to a waitress and asked her to bring him some water "Still... this feeling of powerlessness... its almost frightening" Leon said looking at one of his hands as he propped his head up with the other

"Then how about I train you? You were always best with the wind arts" Shinra spoke, a smile could be herd in her tone

"Wind and lighting huh?" Leon said pondering over the suggestion "Why not? I have nothing to lose... I would like to travel to Bal'Azul for this though, that way I can find some martial artist and swordsman to train me" Leon said as a glass of water was set in front of him, he gave a nod of thanks and drank the glass down and stood up as if he was reborn "Okay! Lets do it!" he said with a smile, but soon after let out a groan "Ouch..." he said

"You stood up too fast" Shinra teased

"Shut up" Leon said as he took his leave from the bar leaving some coins on the table

"But he did say one thing that caught my attention," Vallerie continued, "When he was whispering...um..."

"Endearments?" Rafael asked, his lips twitching and Vallerie nodded,"Yes along the lines of tasting my blood, he let slip that 'Those ugly men were a bad treat anyway,"

Rafael blinked then leaned back and took out a small crystal ball from his pocket that he twirled as he thought. He kept twirling it , his eyes concentrating on the sparkles of the crystal ball.

Vallerie watched him, "Rafael..." she tried once but he seemed to ignore he as he kept twirling the ball. After about an hour or so, during which time he did nothing but twirl the crystal ball, he finally kept it back in his pocket and said, "We are going to lay a trap to draw them out."

Vallerie looked up from painting her nails, "Oh, have you finally decided to talk to me?"

Rafael ignored the question and said, "Here's my plan."

Shekul jumped to his feet and grinned cheerfully, "Yes, let us begin little man." He seemed to blur as he appeared behind Kit, "Fighting for keeps? I wouldn't have it any other way." He said as he jumped up and kicked at Kit with both legs.

As Shekul appeared behind him, Kit chanted "Quasso," which translates to 'Shatter'. When the kick from Shekul connected, the image of Kit shattered as if it were a glass mirror with his image on it. From out of nowhere came Kit's voice, sounding distant and echoed.

"Aureolus pulvis," the voice said, translated to 'Glitterdust'. And just after the words were spoken, the shattered image of Kit shattered even further, into dust that sparkled and flew around Shekul, creating a slightly dizzying effect.

Suddenly, with a sudden jolt of energy, Kit reappeared about twenty yards away and clapped his hands. "Adustus!" He exclaimed, and as he clapped his hands a 360 degrees burst of fire, nearly hot enough to melt the sand, erupted from his entire body.

Shekul blinked at the glittering dust and then spun on his toes, creating a small whirlwind around him to dissipate the glitter dust.

He then stopped, observed Kit for a second then took off in a blur; keeping his distance around Kit, he began to circle round and round , kicking up sand to hinder Fuzzy's vision as he kept going faster and faster, digging a trench of sorts around Kit. The sand under Kit's feet displaced and he was sucked under very much like a quicksand.

"So why Bal'Azul?" Shinra asked as Leon sat on the floor of an inn packing a travel bag with food rations and a nice sized water supply so he could easily make it out of the Desert safely

"Shouldn't it be obvious?" Leon said "Bal'Azul is a large producer of armor, and weapons alike... I need to learn how to defend my self and how to use a sword properly since you cant turn to your Human side again, Bal'Azul is bound to have some well trained Martial Arts instructors for both armed and unarmed combat" Leon finished packing his bag and stood up slinging it over his back, Shinra still in her sheath and on his left waist

"Huh" Shinra said "I would have thought you would have just gone back to your little island, its not like im in any position to force you to go on a little adventure" Shinra said a bit teasingly

"Yea, this is the last thing I myself thought I would have done too... but its not like I have much of a choice if I wish to regain my strength"

"hehe, well then, shall we get going? Ive never been to Bal'Azul before, have you!?" Shinra asked as Leon made his way out of the inn and then out of the town

"Yes... I have... but not for many many years" Leon said with a some what solemn expression on his face, Shinra wondered why he would make a face like that, but decided not to pry any deeper.

As Kit fell into the moving sand he chanted "Admoveo humus," which translates to 'Displace Earth,' and as he said the spell, the sand burst away from him, creating a tsunami of sand as if it were water. This massive wave left Kit standing in a crater so deep that it reached the bedrock beneath the sand, if only where he stood.

"Seems as if I will have to keep a better eye on you," Kit said, " Rimorari aeger," (Translates to 'Prying Eyes'). His eyes glow bright red and he now sees everything in insane detail and what seems to be slow motion.

After a brief pause, Kit clapped his hands, "Incendiarius nebula" (Translates to 'Incendiary Cloud'). As he said the spell a large reddish cloud appeared over the horizon. It moved faster and faster towards Kit and Shekul, and it took up miles in each direction. Everything caught in its path was scorched and charred.

The next day Rowan and Loki were in a bar, when a group of merchants walked in, talking loudly.

"It'll be the biggest trading business of the decade, " one merchant with a thick mustache said. "We can't miss this opportunity"

"I'm worried about those rumors of desert demons. They scare the living wits out of me. I don't think traveling is safe for now." one of them said looking worried and Rowan and Loki grinned at each other.

"We'll hire body guards. Tough bounty hunters who will get us safely across the desert," the man replied. "Come on men. You know our merchandise is too good and we can rake in piles of gold."

"Ok, I'm in." One of the other merchants replied. The others nodded and they began discussing plans on when to leave.

"Tomorrow evening then. We'll travel more during the cooler parts of the day." The merchant said.
****

A few hours later, the man was standing in front of Rafael, his face devoid of the mustache he had been wearing and the rich garments replaced by more modest looking clothes.
"How'd you do?" Rafael asked.
"You can count on my acting troupe, sir. We are pros." The man said proudly.
"Very good," Rafael said and paid the man, who tipped his hat and left.
"Now let's hope they take the bait." He said to himself.

Vallerie walked up to Rafael just as she saw a few people leave his side, bowing and waving as they went "Who were they?" Vallerie asked her partner

"The first half of our preparations, I presume you were able to do what you said you could... even if it does sound impossible" Rafael asked turning to Vallerie who had a smile on her face

"Of course, you should see what I have, a 20 cart long caravan packed with the best goods available... where gonna make a killing off of this trip" Vallerie said holding up a victory sign "So when do we set out"

"Tomorrow, will your goods be ready by then?"

"Leave it to me" Vallerie said and left again walking off into the town.
