Ven stood there for a moment and didn't respond. "....hahahahaha," he started to laugh at the boy's threat to him. "Suck the life force out of me you say?" replied Ven amusingly. Dark energy was quickly rising around him.

"I dare you to try!" an explosion of dark energy sent Kevin flying backwards into a tree. Ven's body went limped as his upper body suddenly drooped.

"I'll make you a deal. if you can actually harm me, I'll tell you who I might be." He raised his head, looking in Kevin's direction. The man couldn't help but smile evilly as he slowly drew his sword

"Who the hell is this guy?" Kevin muttered as he got back up onto his feet.

Dark energy circled around Ven's body as he slowly straightened himself up again. "Come on, make your move," beckoned Ven.

Shawn gave a grin and jerked his spear trying to pull it out of Leon's shoulder, but to his surprise it wouldn't come out, his smile quickly turned to a scowl as he looked at Leon, whose face hadn't even changed from having a spear thrust through his shoulder. Shawn gave one more jerk of his spear before he realized that Leon's own blood had begun to creep up the shaft of his spear.

“Some type of weapon summoner?” Leon said calmly “Maybe a type of blood magic?”

“Fuck you!” Shawn said letting the spear go and jumping back

Leon gave a small wry smile under this hood and reached up with his left arm pulling the spear out of his shoulder with ease, a small hole was left in the place the spear had pierced. Leon raised his left hand at Shawn and began to chant a spell.

“SHAWN!” Sandra shouted as Leon finished his spell

“You think a simple spell will finish me off!” Shawn shouted at Leon and began to charge at him again, just then Shawn's vision went completely white, Shawn stopped and looked around “Where are you! Stop hiding in your damn fog!” Shawn yelled in rage

“Right here” Came Leon's voice from behind him, as he turned to look he felt a fist impact with his back and a massive wave of energy slam through his body, the same burning and numbing sensation that Abraham probably felt quickly subdued the hot blooded warrior causing his vision to go from white, to gray, and then to blankness.

Sandra had watched the whole scene unfold, one second Shawn was charging at Leon the next he stopped and started to frantically look around yelling out at Leon who was still standing in the same place as before for him to “Stop hiding” in his fog, then when Leon answered him Shawn looked the completely opposite way and Leon took the chance to take him out with the same spell he took Abraham out with.

“What... What the hell is happening” Sandra said stunned at the scene

Leon let out a sigh and turned to Sandra “Well now, are you going to try and attack me?”

Sandra took a trembling step back, she was terrified. She looked around but the fog was so thick she couldn't see any of her fiends.

"K-Kevin! Vanessa!" She screamed but got no replies. She swallowed hard, looking back at Leon, who was half hidden into the mist himself, looking unfazed by the pool of blood dripping by his feet.

I have to face him alone... She thought and clenched her fists tightly, her whole body shaking.

*****

Kevin looked over Ven shoulder as Vanessa sneaked up behind him silently.

"So if I fight you, you'll tell me who you are..." Kevin said, standing up and brushing his pants, keeping Ven's attention on himself.
"Not a bad deal, I guess I can do that," He said lazily as Vanessa creeped up behind Ven, 'But I think I don't need to."

Vaessa placed both her hands on Ven's neck and he felt incredible pain shoot through him as she began to leech his power.



****

Leon raised his face and sniffed the air, "It's about to rain soon...' he murmured to himself. "I have to end this quickly,"

He raised a finger and pointed at the girl. She looked at him with big, scared eyes and took a step back.

He sighed and then shot a spell at her.

Sandra gasped and dove to the side, landing on the ground and scrambling forward, she jumped into a tree and shot out of it into another as Aventh's spells hit the trees.

Suddenly it began to rain.

Leon looked up and gave a sigh. The thick fog began to settle some, giving the opponents more visibility than he would have liked.

Sandra stood inside a tree trunk, breathing hard. Her eyes widened as she saw the rain settle the fog some.

"Yes..." she whispered, keeping her eyes on the mage who was looking around the clearing, searching for her. She melted inside the ground.

Leon suddenly felt something grip his legs and pull him under ground, trapping him and leaving him completely immobile.

Sandra shot out of the ground and made to run towards her friends.

"Tch..." he said as pain ran through his body. Oldest trick in the book and Ven fell for it. He was sure disappointed in himself. Though he felt his power slowly seeping away he just stood there unfazed from the pain.

"Looks like this won't be much of a fight," Kevin said to Ven.

Vanessa coughed up blood as she continued to leech Ven's power. "So you're trying to leech my power?" he asked her, "But it seems like you cough up blood in the process..." The man slow turned his head and looked at Vanessa.

"...I wonder how long you'll last," he said as he smiled to her.

Vanessa coughed up blood again, "How much power does he have?" she thought. "I can't do this forever..."

Kevin stood there in disbelief. The man in front of him was simply unfazed by Vanessa's power, it almost seem like she was only hurting herself. "Who the hell is this guy?"

"Are you sure you won't need to fight me?" Ven asked the guy in front of him as he continued letting Vanessa kill herself while seeping some of his power.

Vanessa staggered back, her face chalk white as she bent over and vomited out a large quantity of blood, falling to her hands and knees.
She gasped for breath, looking at Ven as if he was a monster. What is he... she thought dazedly.

Kevin's fists were clenched, his eyes narrowed as he stared at Ven. Vanessa looked terrible while the man hardly seemed fazed.

Gauging from her state, he has an immense amount of power; on second thoughts, fighting him would be a bad idea. Kevin decided and held up his hands.
"No need to fight." He said with a bland smile. "Im sure we can reach a peaceful solution."

Right before Sandra reached Shawn a magic circle lit up brightly under her, and her body instantly became unmovable, she tried as hard as she could to move her arms or legs, but no matter how hard she tried she couldn't get her body to move, she tried to scream but no sound came out, her body had become completely frozen in place, it felt as if restraints had been placed on every single inch of her body, all she could do was look around and breathe.

Sandra looked up to see Leon appearing once again in the same place he appeared when he took out Abraham and walk over too her, stopping right before her face "That was not a smart move" Leon said and then looked over her shoulder to see Ven, Vanessa, and Kevin fighting, though it had seemed to come to a bit of a stand still at the moment. Leon walked around Sandra and with a quick chant a chair of stone rose out of the ground and he took a seat "I suppose ill just watch for now" Leon said with a sigh as he leaned back int he chair resting his arms, thunder and lighting crackled over head as the storm started to become more intense, the rain started to poor down on every one "Seems the storm is picking up power" Leon said holding out a hand "Well, this could work in my advantage"

"tsk tsk tsk," said Ven disappointingly towards Vanessa as she dropped to the ground coughing up blood. "I was hoping you would do better than that." Ven kicked the vulnerable Vanessa and she fell to the wet ground from the rain.

The man's face suddenly glared towards Kevin as his terrible smile and attempt of peace. "What do you take me for? A moralistic person?" he laughed as he kicked Vanessa again, still vulnerable.

Kevin couldn't believe how terrible the man was. "Stop it!" he yelled as he tried to stop him from hurting Vanessa even more.

Ven's foot stopped kicking Vanessa and his face turned to a look of disappointment once again. "Pah, you guys weren't as much fun as I thought you guys would be," Ven shook his head as he lowered his head.

"What is this guy?..." Vanessa thought as she struggled to get herself up.

"Can't we read a peaceful solution?" Kevin tried pleading again.

Ven held up one open hand towards Kevin to motion him to stop talking. "Unlike that guy over there," he pointed at Leon who was simply watching their so called fight, "I don't go easy on people who tried picking a fight with me."

His body disappeared leaving a trail of black smoke and reappeared in front of Kevin. "Any last words?" he asked.

Kevin's eyes began to glow a very light blue, his mouth began to water as his whole body began to prepare for a battle.
Lets go... voices in his mind hissed hungrily.
I could....but that might get Vanessa in the midst....tsk, looks like we have to leave this island for now Kevin took a deep breath, unwilling to let himself get caught up in the thrill of a feast.

He cricked his neck slowly, getting himself under control. Ven was watching him intently, waiting for a move.

Suddenly Kevin's body turned into a mist.

Vanessa was lifted into the mist, along with Shawn and Abraham, "Let my comrade go and we will leave the island, " Kevin's voice came like he was speaking from under water.

Leon looked at them, "I trust you to leave, i will know if you haven't and if thats the case, I will hunt you all down and kill you," Leon said.

He snapped his fingers and Sandra was released and then lifted into the mist.


"Tsk cowards!" Ven said in disgust as they all disappeared from view.

"What about you..." Leon said to Ven, "Are you leaving or not?"
***

Kevin flew them to the boat, dropping them onto the bank and collapsing on the bank with them, panting heavily. "Wow....that was heavy..." he wheezed, rolling onto his back.
Vanessa was still deathly white but she was breathing easier now.
Sandra was shaking her head as she sat up. "What was that..." she said, looking dazed. "Those people..."
"I wasn't expecting them to be that powerful," Kevin said as he stood up after a while and kicked Shawn and Abraham both of who groaned but didn't wake up.
"Crap! We can get out of here without Abraham," Kevin growled.

"I have some smelling salts," Sandra dug into her bag and pulled out a bottle.

"Worth a try," Kevin said as he poured the whole bottle into his hand and shoved them under Abrahan's nose.

His body jerked at the harsh smell and he opened his eyes slowly. He looked up at them, his face pale then struggled to sit up weakly.
"Oh good,' Sandra sighed in relief, her body sagging. "We thought we'd be stuck here."

Abraham leaned on Sandra and Vanessa as he made his way to the boat while Kevin dragged Shawn's body and hauled him up on the boat.
Kevin grabbed the oars and looked at the island with narrowed eyes, I'll be back here He thought of Ven and nodded. "I'll be meeting you again," he said softly as he began to row.

Shinra sat in a inn on the small lake side town she had arrived at when she left the island, he eyes looking outside at the rain as it poured down battering the window harshly, thunder sounding every once in a while, she fell back into the inns hard lumpy bed and let out a sigh "I cant exactly head back with this rain" she mumbled, she laid there listening to nothing but the rain for a few minutes and then all of a sudden she herd a huge burst of commotion and some people rushing out of the inn, she quickly sat up and smiled "I wonder whats going on!" she cheerfully said as she slipped on a cloak and ran out of the inn to find a large group gathering by the small dock. Shinra quickly ran over to see what all the commotion was about.

"Are they okay?" One onlooker said

"I dont know, there was something about them finding a way onto that island" Another said

Shinra could hear all of the talk as she pushed her way to the front, and finally she saw it, a small boat had arrived 5 young looking adventures, one was dead out tired, two were out cold and looked pretty beaten up, another looked terrified, and the last looked pretty beat up and drained of energy, as if he had forced himself to stay awake, along with the 5 adventures were some other adventures helping them out of the boat, Shinra quickly rushed over to give them aid.

"Lets get them to the inn to rest up" One man said as Shinra made her way over, with a nod she lifted up one of the men who were out cold with the help of another man and then quickly made there way to the inn.

The dark energy dissipated around Ven as he just dropped to the ground. "Gah, there goes my entertainment..." he complained and closed his eyes for a moment.

Leon sighed as the man simply had ignored his question. "Are you leaving or not?" he asked again.

Ven opened his eyes and slowly got back up. "I don't know if I want to leave yet," he replied as he brushed off some of the dirt on his clothes. "Yuck," he said as he waved his hands, trying to get the dirt off.

Before Leon could say anything else, Ven just began to ramble, "You know, things have been very boring around this place. " he began as he took very slow steps around his spot.

"It's been what...500 years since anything interesting really happened," he said, slowing down to a stop. "Don't you agree mysterious hooded man?" he asked with a glance in the mage's direction.

"Or should I just call you something else?...like Aventh?" Ven had surely gotten his attention now though he could not see the look on the man's face himself since it was covered by his hood.

Leon grinned and threw his head back in the chair "hahaha, Aventh huh? but you must be wrong" he said looking back at Ven with a shrug "Im just an old sage far past his prime. But you know, even if you are bored I dont know what you expect me to do about it, and I dont really feel like fighting you right now" Leon said as he rubbed his right shoulder while stretching his neck.

"I could care less if you feel like fighting or not, your the only interesting thing ive found in the past 500 years" Ven said staring straight at Leon

Leon's eyes kind of wondered off tot he distance as he rest his head on his left arm "Well... I do agree that these last 500 years have been unusually peaceful..." Leon said basically ignoring what Ven had just said.

Sandra sat in a chair sipping hot cocoa. Vanessa, Shawn and Abraham were all sleeping.
Kevin had parted ways with them even before they had reached the inn.

The rain was beating heavily on the window pane and Sandra looked out the window, thinking of their bizarre adventure.
Im not going back there again. She thought with a shudder.

"Hey," a voice said. Sandra looked behind her shoulder to see a woman who smiled cheerfully at her
"I hear ya'll went to the island,"

Sandra turned back, not wanting to talk to strangers about the island. "Im tired, please leave me alone," she said.

****

Kevin walked down the rainy streets, looking unperturbed by the rain. Rain was always heavy in Furen and a constant part of their lives.

The trees moved with the strong wind as it rained and Kevin turned a corner as large gates came into view.

The guards at the door, bowed to him and pushed the gates open and he walked in.

He walked across the stone courtyard to the large wooden doors leading into the house.

The house was richly furnished, but lacked the warmth of a real home. Just the way Kevin liked it.

He walked down the long corrdior to a study at the end of it , leaving a wet trail in his wake.

He knocked then entered.

Two men were sitting in armchairs by the fire, drinking wine. They looked at Kevin as ke entered.

"Oh, you're back from your adventure?" One of them said. "Find something valuable?"

Kevin said. "We ran into some trouble." He took out a glass and poured him self a drink.
He then turned and leaned against the table as he smiled and sipped the wine, "But, yes, I did find something valuable."
"What was it?" The other man asked.

"An immortal man," Kevin said, "With seemingly an endless amount of power. He will be a nice addition to the collection."

"I guess it didn't go too well" Shinra said as she sat down near the girl "But you know, it might be better to talk about it, how about you start by telling me why you went to the island in the first place?"

Sandra just sat there looking in the opposite direction from Shinra, completely ignoring her

"I guess you really dont wanna talk about it, maybe some rest will change you mind?" Shinra said with a small smile "Well, if your looking for a fun but safe adventure, come talk to me later in my room, Ill even bring my partner along so it will be extra safe" Shinra stood up and took a look at her companions and then at Sandra once more before heading upstairs to her room giving the girl some time alone.

Despite herself, Sandra was intrigued.

When Shawn and Abraham arrived a few hours later, still looking weak but regaining their strengths as they wolfed down food, she told them of the strange woman,
"Not interested,' Shawn said with a mouth full of food. "Girly adventures don't interest me,"
"What?! How do you know its girly?" Sandra said indignantly.
"Fun and SAFE missy....why don't you dress me up in frocks and frills and just put a noose around my neck?" he said stuffing a whole bread roll into his mouth, spraying some of it in her face.

Sandra grimaced at his table manners as she wiped her face, "You never know, " Her face brightened as she saw Vanessa.
Her friend had regained her dreamy air around herself. "I smell food," she said drifting to their table.
She excitedly told Vanessa about the woman while Vanessa buttered the bread roll, "How nice," Vanessa said as she took a small bite of the bread and chewed dainty. "I would like to meet this strange woman."

Abraham and Shawn stood up after finishing their food. "Good day ladies, pleasure meeting ya,"Shawn said and they headed out.

Sandra and Vanessa finished their food then headed over to the woman's room.

Shinra was packing her bag seeing as the rain had finally started to clear when she herd a knock at her door "Yes? come in?" Shinra said as both Vanessa and Sandra walked in "Oh, I see you were intrigued and it looks like you brought a friend, but what happened to those two young men her were sleeping downstairs? weren't they also in your little troop?"

"They said they weren't interested in a 'girly' adventure" Sandra said "So its just me and my friend Vanessa"

"Well, I guess they will just have to miss out on all of the rare treasures we find, no matter, more share for us right?" Shinra said with a smile

"What exactly is this 'adventure' you say we will find plenty of riches... but can we really fin riches that easily?" Vanessa said

"Have either of you herd the story of King Havetal?" Shinra said as she sat down the bed a large smile on her face

"You mean the children's story about a King Havetal who became so greedy he turned his own people into gold statues thus angering the gods who caused his small island nation sink to the bottoms of the sea where he died with all of his treasure, that King Havetal?" Vanessa said a bit skeptical

"Well it seems it might not just be a story after all, apparently after the last great catastrophe that befell Aphellion a few thousand years ago a small island a bit a way off the coast of Azuriya disappeared and since then has been lost, but I recently got a lead that says they know where this island is and would like my help in retrieving the treasures" Shinra said

"Well if its at the bottom of the sea how are we suppose to even get to it?" Vanessa asked

"You dont have to worry about that, me and my partner that ill be bringing along will handle that much" Shinra responded

"And if we run into any dangerous situations?" Vanessa questioned

"Thats why im bringing my partner along, im sure me and him will be able to counter anything unexpected" Shinra answered

"It seems interesting, why dont we give it a go vanessa?" Sandra said

"Well, it seems like you have thought this whole thing through..."

"Shinra" Shinra said introducing herself

"Shinra, so when do we leave?" Vanessa asked

"As soon as I return with my partner, so why dont you two rest a bit longer in this inn, ill be back either tonight or early tomorrow morning, make sure you are ready to leave ASAP" Shinra said with a smile "By the way, I dont believe ive caught you names"

"Vanessa" Vanessa said

"Sandra" Sandra said

"Well its nice to meet you Sandra and Vanessa, and ill return soon so be ready!" Shinra said as she made her way out of the room and then towards the docks, after a few minutes she set off into the lake.

Ven sighed and turned his head away looking at trees and fog. "You've lived as long as I have," he said as he clapped his hands letting a sound ring throughout the island. "I'm my opinion things have gotten too peaceful for this land compared to the so many things that have happened."

Leon's eyes locked on back to Ven as he had his back turned to the sage. "And you're saying it's a bad thing?" he asked as if he was actually curious.

"Heh,"he chuckled as he stretched his arms. "I guess you can say that," he replied as he cracked his fingers one by one. "This land isn't as interesting when everyone is getting along with each other."

Ven began to throw fake punches at the air in front of him. "It's much more interesting when there's a war or conflicts are going on." He added a little cynical laugh at the end of his statement.

Leon continued leaning on his shoulder quietly as Ven rambled on about his perspective and nonsense.

A finger suddenly rose in the air by Ven which actually made Leon a bit curious in what the heck he was doing. "But, I have a feeling something is going to happen in the near future." he said calmly.

"What makes you say that?" asked Leon as he switched arms he was leaning on.

The man grinned at Leon and didn't make any sort of reply to his question. He simply placed his hands in his pockets and turned around. "I think I've bothered you enough," he said as he began to walk away from the area. "I'm pretty sure you want me to leave anyways."

Ven scratched his head as he was walking back on the water. "What's gotten into me," he said as he made a punching motion at his own face. "I haven't acted soft like since ever since I was still inside his body," Ven said as he slowly down to a stop in the middle of the lake. He dropped his head and looked at his hands as he opened and closed his over and over again.

With a sudden shake of his head he began walking again. "Are you happy now?" he thought, "you've actually succeeded in rubbing off on me, even though it's almost 500 years late."
