The tribe man and translator stopped in their tracks. Shinra froze. Have they found out about her?

But the tribe man gibbered away in his language and the translator merely nodded his head. They parted ways. Shinra could tell they were beyond furious. Just what had that silly little girl done to them?

Shinra looked up to the sky to see that Morning had come and that the night was over, she let out a little sigh and stood up burshing off her legs from crawling through the jungle for a good part of the night "I guess I might as well head back..." she said a bit disappointed that nothing interesting had happened, she turned around to the direction she had come from took a crouching stance and jumped quickly disappearing from the area..

Sandra leaned against the tree, looking around fearfully. The jungle was getting lighter, yet she was as lost as before and she could hear animal calls, many of which sounded too close for comfort. She pulled her jacket tighter around herself and prayed Vanessa or Shinra would find her soon. She heard the sound of water nearby and headed in that direction, finding herself at the bank of a slow moving section of the river. "Jeez I hope they find me..." said Sandra, wiping her prow as she surveyed the river in hopes of catching sight of someone.

Suddenly her foot caught on something and she went sprawling face first into the ground. "OUCH!" she cried sitting up and wiping her face, she turned to look and gasped in surprise at finding a man lying on the ground, his eyes shut and he was breathing heavily. "H-hey! Are you okay?" Sandra asked and shook him. The man was unresponsive and she turned him over, gasping when she caught sight of the red bandages plastered to his back.

"Hello! Mister!" Sandra peered into his face. "Are you okay?!" The man moaned and shook his head, moving into a sitting position as he looked around. "Urg, where am I?" he asked. "Uh...I dont know," Sandra said, sighing. "Im lost myself," she looked concerned, noticing his bandages, "You look like you really took a beating. Who are you?"

"My name... Is Fried..." he said before passing out again. "Ahhh, misssterrrr," Sandra shook him but he was out cold. 'What do I do...?' Sandra thought worriedly, biting her lip. She was no healer and what if he was seriously hurt? She had to get help. But leave him alone...? She couldnt do that, he'd be attacked and eaten by wild animals in less than an hour... "GAH!" Sandra screamed, "WHAT DO I DO?"

"You stay calm" Leon said from behind Sandra, the girl looking back to see Leon. "UGH!" Her mind screamed. She really couldn't see how the situatin had gotten better. This was a raving maniac for crying out loud. "Uh...hello..." Sandra said nervously. "I ...uh....this man is dying..."

"I can see that" Leon said kneeling down and looking at the man as he gently brushed Sandra to the side, he turned the man over to see the blood soaked bandages and sighed "There isint much I can do for him with these injuries" Leon said looking at Sandra "So you get lost and then you find some dying man... so troublesome"

Sandra looked incensed at his tone but she kept herself quiet. It would make matters worse if he left her and the man behind. "We need to get back to camp, I have some medical-" Sandra trailed off. The man wasn't even listening to her as he checked the other man for injuries, mumbling to himself. "Geez, rude hermit," she said under her breath and waited quietly.

"Lets get him back to camp... we need to change these bandages, and there I may be able to preform simple medical treatment... but we should get him to a village quickly, we can leave him in the care of some healers at the town we are coming up on" Leon said picking the man up "Well? are you going to help?" Leon said looking back at Sandra, Sandra gave a small nod and got up and put the man's arm over her neck propping him up, after she had Leon and her started to walk through the jungle back towards the camp.

“Oh! You found her and... someone else?” Shinra said jumping down from a tree as Leon, Sandra, and the injured man named Fried entered the camp's clearing

“Yes, and he is badly injured... get the tent ready Shinra” Leon said as he dragged the man over to the tent that Shinra had run off to at Leon's words, when they entered the tent Shinra already had a cot set up and a few medical supplies out “Good, now help me lay him down gently”

“Okay~” Shinra said as she took over Sandra's position and gently laid Fried down on his stomach

“Now, shall we get these bandages off and see the damage?” Leon said as he gently took a knife and cute the bandages off, Shinra quickly removing them into a trash bag at the side of the cot

“That looks pretty bad” Shinra said staring at the cuts on Fried's back “You think you can actually heal that?”

“No I don't, that's why ill only heal as much as I can then bandage him up... it should at least help him hold up until we reach the town” Leon said as he hovered his left hand over Frieds back and began to chant.


It was several hours later when Shinra finally came out of the tent, both Sandra and Vanessa were standing in front of it awaiting any news “So?” Sandra asked “How is he?”

Shinra gave a slight smile as a response “Well his life shouldn't be in immediate danger right now... but if we don't get him to a healer soon that could change quickly”

Both Vanessa and Sandra breathe a sigh of relief at the news


Leon sat next to the man in the tent and leaned back in his chair with a sigh, his face full of sweat beads and his breathe were long and deep “Such a tiring adventure right from the get go...” Leon said to him self.

Catalina followed Vanessa around, pretending to be as innocent as she could. When will this pretending stop?

She looked around, sensing if any of Vanessa's friends has the blood of Baptista. I cannot sense anything, Catalina sighed.

But then she felt a faint aura a few miles away. There was no doubt that it was the aura of the clan. Now she has to get away from here and kill before he could get away.

"Who is this?" Shinra asked looking down at Catalina.

"This is Catalina, she was hungry and lost," Vanessa explained breezily.

"Same here," Sandra growled, "It's all Shinra's fault."

"Hey!" Shinra made a face, "I didnt know you'd get lost. It was fairly easy route."

"Ahem," Catalina coughed softly, "Can I please get some food, i feel faint,"


"Me too," Sandra said and Shinra said, 'ok ok, Lets get a fire roaring."


An hour later the smell of hot breakfast cooking filled the clearing.


Shinra brought over a plate for Leon, "When are we leaving?" she asked.


****

Soo Yun had been wandering in the jungle all night. She settled against a tree to rest when she inhaled the faint aroma of food cooking.
"Aha! Food." she said and hopping up followed it.

“As soon as everyone is done eating we begin to pack” Leon said still staring at the injured man as he took a few bites of food and then set the plate aside “His condition is still stable, but I still dont wanna take any chances”

Shinra gave a small laugh as she smiled “Your still the kind old you” She said as she left the tent

Leon let out a sigh “I wouldn't say im that kind anymore” Leon said to himself as he took a few more bites of food

"Uhm...thank you for your hospitality but I really need to go now," Catalina said.

They all looked at her. Vanessa said, "Leaving so soon? We can't let you do that since you're just a kid."

Then Catalina smiled, an emotionless smile. "It's okay. I've been travelling for more than 100 years." Then she summoned Beringar, the bear spear, and held it with her right hand.

"To kill."

Sean yawned as he slowly made his way through the forest. "Gahh, I'm so tired," complained the boy as his eyes continued drooping down from his half-asleep state. The boy looked like he was walking in an obscure path, skewing to the left and then skewing to the right as he had not completely woken up yet. The morning was not really helping much since the boy was travelling through the forest. Patches of sunlight appeared through the canopies of the trees here and there, but there wasn't a great amount of light that really lit up the area he was at. "I need some wataaaaa-" the boy didn't see the tree root that was sticking up slightly and caught his foot in it and unfortunately landed on the ground with a loud THUMP.

The boy lifted up his face from the painful face plant and started to making sniffing sounds and various other noises as if he was about to cry. But he managed to hold in the tears and wipe his face clean of dirt and snot. "I'm not going to cry," he told himself as his pulled himself up back onto his feet. He realized that his voice sounded a bit croaky and dry as he talked to himself. And after that second his stomach growled with this loud and low grumble. He blushed from the tremendous sound that came out of his stomach and quickly looked around expecting someone to have possibly heard that noise even though he was in the middle of nowhere.

"Haha, what am I thinking? No one else is here," he tried to laugh off any worries he had at the moment and tried to think positive. Sean knew that if he was going to have any positive thoughts, it will only affect his mental ability to continue on this endless journey to find his family who was taken from him a while back. However...food was definitely something he would need if he was going to continue on this journey.

Suddenly the boy heard a rustle around him and suddenly turned around and a sudden jolt. "W-W-W-Who's there?" he asked as his head quickly bounced back and forth from tree to tree hoping it was just some harmless animal passing by. "H-H-Haha, it was probably just my imagination," he nodded to himself and turned back around to continue walking the path he was going.

THUMP.

Sean had continued walking with his eyes closed and didn't notice that he accidentally walked into a tree....Tree? "Wait a minute..." he thought as he was rubbing his head that had impacted from the ground when he fell backwards. The boy took a moment to process the fact that he had not run into something hard like a free, but soft like clothes and possibly a human. The boy opened his eyes and saw a pair of legs right in front of him as he was lying on the ground. His eyes slowly moved up to see a man, holding a sword in one hand, glaring down right at him.

"Oh my god oh my god oh my god!" ran through the boys head as he started to shake a little bit. A sword, the man was holding a sword. Was this man dressed in black going to kill him? "I-I-I'm sorry!" stuttered the young lad as he scurried around and quickly bowed down to the man in apology.

************************************************************************************************************************************************

Ven was walking through the woods bored out of his minds once again. "You know Ken, this world doesn't really have anything interesting going on anymore," he said out loud as if he was talking to someone near him. He just shook his head as he continued walking. What to do in this world these days. Maybe if he really tried he could look for some sort of entertainment. But why the hell would he look for that himself?

The man was too busy not paying attention where he was walking when something that felt small suddenly ran into him. Ven quickly heard a thump soon after that. His footsteps stopped and he looked down to see a boy on the ground rubbing his head in pain. Ven didn't expect the boy to sudden scurry like some weird animal, but it turned out he was just apologizing to him.

"Huh?" Ven asked tilted his head with a serious look on his face. He had found something to kill time with so early in the morning and he was going to take his sweet time enjoying this moment. "What did you say kid?" he asked with his voice a little louder.

"I-I'm sorry!" the boy said as he dropped his head to the ground. "I didn't mean to bump into you!"

Ven sighed as he saw the boy shivering in fear by the very presence of Ven. What made him look so intimidating?...Wait. Ven looked at the sword he was hold in his hand and forgot he was walking with it. Walking with this kinda thing does really make him seem like he's out to kill someone, but wait. Ven formed a small grin on his face. This just made the whole situation better, it gave him the edge on controlling the boy. "Just watch where you're going next time boy," he said with an edge of sting in his tone.

Sean didn't know what to do. After all he was only a boy. All the thoughts running through his head was basically to run away and hope for this situation to just end. He didn't want to get in trouble, he just wanted to find his family.

The boy was still just there in front of Ven doing nothing. "What's wrong with you?" asked the man as he kicked the boy in the head knocking him back a few feet. For some reason this boy was slightly not as fun as he expected. It was definitely ruining the man's mood.

"Gah!" screamed Sean as he was sent back a few feet. "I-I-I'm sorry!" he apologized again holding his arms in front of him in fear as if to block something. "This man is going to kill me!" he thought as he was shaking even more. But a thought struck in his head. If he was going to die how was he going to save his family? The boy's shivering had stopped when the thought ran into his head. "I can't die now," he whispered.

Ven was walking closer to the boy, but stopped when he heard something come out of his voice. "Huh? What did you say?" he asked as he started to draw the blade.

"I said I'm not going to die today!" yelled the boy as he lowered his defense stance. Suddenly flames spewed out of the boy, nothing that would harm the forest, but it was definitely noticeable to the man standing on front of him.

"What the hell?" he thought as he retracted his blade and actually took a small step back. The man wasn't scared that the boy had suddenly produced random flames, but he was just surprised that the boy was actually retaliating. Not only that the look no his face was something not to mess with. Ven could see for some reason the boy was determined to do something and had a set goal on his face... for some reason it was reminding him of someone. However, the man couldn't pinpoint the fact just yet.

"You're not going to kill me!" he said as he got back onto his foot. "I've got a family to save!" he said with his determined eyes lit up from his goal. The boy was definitely not going to let some random man stop him and was willing to do whatever means necessary to keep himself alive and continue on his search for his mother and sister. Sean wasn't going to die today or ever until he meets his family again.

Ven just stood there and looked at the boy with the fire lit in his eyes. His eyes widened as he can actually see the resemblance between the two.

"...he's just like Ken,"

"Go where?" Vanessa asked, blinking in surprise at the spear.
"Kill who?" Sandra asked shocked, nearly dropping her plate.

Then they both stopped and said together incredulously, "A 100 years?!"

Soo Yun was heading in the direction of the aroma of food when she heard a slight commotion to her right.

She followed the sound till she spotted a young boy-flames around him- glaring at a man with a distinctly dark aura around him.


"Oh what do we have here?" Soo yun wondered, looking at them.

*****

Kevin picked up the bag, putting a large hunter's hat on his head that he got for free for all his purchases. "Let's go," he said cheerfully, sliding the bag on his shoulder.

"Ye sure look happy," Shawn grinned wide as they left the shop.

"I am." Kevin said, nearly skipping, "I haven't had the thrill of a hunt for a few years now. My last target was a disappointment."

"So ye like them to put up a fight huh?" Shawn asked.

Kevin smiled slowly, an unreadable expression coming over his face, "You could say that."

*****


Kevin led them across the city to an old manor, set on the edge of the dense forests. The manor was made of dark gray stone and looked completely vacant. The area around it was surrounded by dead trees.

The gates made creaking noises as Kevin pushed it open and led them inside. It was much cooler and darker inside the territory than outside. It was almost like the sun had no effect on this place.

"What's this place?" Shawn asked as they walked towards the manor.

"A property that belongs to my family. We always come here before the start of the hunt. You'll see why." Kevin said, stopping by the doors with two gargoyles stationed on each side of the wooden doors.

Kevin took out a pocket knife and made a small cut on his palm. He let the blood drip into the mouths of the two gargoyles.

As Abraham and Shawn watched, the gargoyles slowly swallowed the blood and then reached over and pushed open the doors.

Kevin, Shawn and Abraham walked inside, their footsteps echoing.

They walked along the long corridor until they came to a circular room with innumerable staircases going up and down, sideways and around.

"What the...." Shawn said looking around.
"All these staircases lead somewhere, stepping on the wrong one could mean we'd end up somewhere else and thats no fun," Kevin said as he looked up and down the staircases carefully then chose one. He stepped on it and Shawn and Abraham followed. "Sometimes it takes days to return." He began to hum as the stairs began to move up on their own.

They saw many doors and entrances but they passed them all as the stairs climbed higher.

Finally after what seemed like hours, the stairs stopped in front of a large, black door.

Kevin, Shawn and Abraham stepped off the stairs and onto the door step.

"Enter," a number of voices spoke.

Kevin gripped the handle of the door and pushed it open.

Dark aura...

Instinctively, her right arm shook a little. Soo Yun winced and gripped her right arm with her left hand. The shaking stopped. I hate this situation... it's not profitable at all... shall i tail them till they cause some problems in the nearby village?

Soo Yun navigated her way cautiously to avoid stepping on dry leaves. Her small statute was nice hidden behind a tree trunk. Her right ear twitched and she could hear some hissing. It's similar to hellspeak but that adult is keeping his power well hidden. Is he a threat?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ven felt something prodding him. Someone is trying to read him. He indicated Sean to keep the fire out. "Someone is watching..."

Catalina let out a soft laugh. "Were you startled? I apologize."

Then she turned to the opposite direction. "In return for the hospitality, I would like to thank you. However, if you interfere," her spear facing them, "then you'll have to face my spear until your heart stops beating."

Then she pulled out a pouch from her pocket. "Catch." Then she threw the pouch and Sandra caught it. "This is my payment. It is not stolen, don't worry. It was given to me."

They opened the pouch and they were startled to see a few nuggets of gold.

"The next time we meet, don't expect me to treat you nicely. So I apologize in advance."

Before they could say anything, she ran off. I have to catch up before he gets away.

Fried waited until the others were packing up before he took his chance to steal away. He had left a few coins for their troubles and pulled on his swords before quietly walking towards the forest, praying he didn't run into anyone.

The boy didn't understand the situation that was going on. Weren't they just on opposing sides? He also didn't understand what he motioned about putting out a fire. Sean didn't know he had the power to control fire, it still comes and goes and now he didn't even notice it activated at all. The boy thought the sudden empowerment just came in the moment. The flames suddenly died down however as the main wasn't posing a threat to him anymore.

"...umm?" he tried to get the man's attention as Ven seemed to be looking in some direction.

Ven didn't like people watching and spying on what he was doing. It does seem very hypocritical since earlier he was spying on Leon himself, but Ven was too busy to notice the irony. "There's a person watching us right now," he stated towards the boy who was standing right next to him confused.

Sean took a step back in surprise. "W-What?" he asked as he frantically looked everywhere to find someone spying on him.

Ven suddenly grabbed the boy's head with his hand to stop the boy's crazy head motion. "You're not going to find the person spying like that..." his voice traveled off as his eyes slowly scanned the area.

"I don't know what you want," he said aloud through the forest, "but if you're going to continue watching us like that just come out already so we know who you are."

************************************************************************************************************************************************

"Tch, I was found," Soo Yun muttered as she was still hiding behind a tree. "Maybe I should leave," she thought figuring out what she should do.

************************************************************************************************************************************************

Ven could see that whoever was watching them wasn't planning on coming out. The man just sighed, "I don't have to deal with crap like this," he muttered. There was another hint of irony to that statement, Ven has all the time in the world since he's immortal and really hasn't been doing anything over the past hundred years to actually be busy, but he also failed to notice that ironic situation.

"Alright fine," he said as if he was going to give up on caring about the person watching him, "Don't come out then," he said as he began walking into the forest.

"W-Where are you going?" asked the boy as he was confused.

"I'm just going to greet this person," he said as his body disappeared in the shadows and so did the sounds of his footsteps.

Sean looked around frantically as he was all alone once again. "W-What if the person watching comes get me while I'm all alone." The boy who had just mustered up courage to confront an immortal demon who was just in front of him was now the scared little boy again.

************************************************************************************************************************************************

Soo Yun couldn't feel the presence of the man anymore and no longer could see where he was. "Did the man leave?" she whispered quietly to herself.

"Nope, I'm quite still here," said a voice that appeared from behind. "What do we have hear? A random girl who reeks the presence of a demon spying on a simple man and a boy?"

Soo Yun turned around in surprised to suddenly find the man she was just watching from afar to now be right in front of her.
