Eurydice decided to take a stroll around the village while waiting for the next ship.

It was a beautiful village, but it wasn't that that made Eurydice awe with amazement. She was surprised how people of different races could mingle together in this small village. She saw humans, some who even possessed some magic, harpies, witches, and so much more.

She didn't feel comfortable when people were staring at Harimau, with his features that didn't seem normal for a tiger. He was an ice tiger after all, a rare race of tigers.

It would take days before they could ride the next ship so they had to find a decent inn to stay. Remembering the warning of the policewoman, they were extra careful to find an inn that wasn't overpriced. Being new to the area, she didn't know what to do.

I should have asked her first before freaking her out, she sighed.

A street brawl broke out suddenly. There were some loud shouting from a man and the crowds gathered. Men in red guard suits came rushing in from all corners to break them apart. Their dressing were different from the police like girl.

Eurydice can't help but wonder where that police girl came from. Is she really one of the police forces?

Zephyra walked through the streets of Anizama, disguised in her human-form. It had been five hours since she arrived here but she hadn´t found any signs of any other harpy.
"Where should I search for ya?"

But then Eurydice learned not to judge a person on his/her appearance. She was supposed to look for the policewoman who would probably help her, but now she was hesitant.

"Harimau, who do you think should we trust?"

Harimau turned to look at her. "Are you referring to the girl a while ago?"

She nodded. "I thought all the while she was a policewoman, but I don't think she was a bad person to pretend to be one."

Harimau said, "I think we should trust a person who let see through one's soul."

Eurydice wondered at the moment. She looked at the police at the scene. They seemed professional, but unpredictable. They do their job, but don't consider emotions. Then she knew what he was talking about. "I guess you're right."

Then Eurydice went to find the policewoman, when she bumped into a red-haired woman.

"I'm sorry! Did I hurt you?"

Distracted because of her search, Zephyra hadn´t noticed the girl which had bumped into her. She shook her head and looked at the jet black-haired girl and the white tiger by her side. She sniffed and made a grimace. Human.
"I´m sorry! Did I hurt you?" asked the girl shyly.
"Don´t just walk anywhere, human." She spoke the word like it was something disgusting. "Other people have better to do than just enjoyin´ their time." Zephyra intended to turn away but a growl made her stop. She looked at the white tiger which stood protective before the girl. Zephyra smiled even though it wasn´t a funny one. "Ya want to attack me boy, don´t ya?"

Eurydice stared at the woman with the golden eyes. "No he won´t hurt you, I promise." Her voice was like a whisper.
"You didn´t do anything wrong Eurydice. This bird bumped into you, not you her." Harimau tried to convince his friend but she shook her head. "No Harimau, I did. And you shouldn´t call her a bird. That´s not a nice thing to say." The red-haired raised an eyebrow. "This thing can talk? And ya even noticed what I am. Cute li´l pet." Harimau answered with a growl. "I won´t let you be bad to Eurydice. Besides I smelled your scent all over the place. My nose can sense you hundreds miles against the wind."

That made Zephyra curious. She thought a moment and made a decision. "Ya talk big without a proof. I don´t think ya could find another one like me in this hole city, could ya?" The harpy grinned.
Harimau had somewhat of a bad feeling.

Eurydice was startled. She wasn't human?

Harimau took a step closer, raising his defenses. "What is a man-hater doing in a place filled with humans? And a harpies, on top of that." Zephyra flinched.

Then Zephyra sneered. "Ya sure are nosy for a big white kitten. What do you wanna do with a bid birdie like me? Eat me?"

"There is no need for that. I won't eat a bad-mouthed harpies like you when I can smell tens of harpies in this island alone."

It took a while before it came into Zephyra's mind. He can smell the harpies in this island? "H-how many? And where is their scent strong?"

Harimau realized that she was already questioning him.

The crowd watched the brawl interestedly as the guards came to break it up without much success. Then, there was a strong presence. The crowd went silent. Even the mischief makers stopped resisting but the guards didn't even arrest them. Everyone was looking at one direction and it was clear where the strong aura came from.

A blond girl had just entered the scene and she was very mad. The aura around here reflected so.

"Heh, now you want to know? Why should I help you? You didn´t anything what gives me the reason to help you." Harimau felt a hand on his big shoulder and he looked up at Eurydice.
"That´s not nice Harimau. I think she is really worried about them. We should help her if we can." Eurydice stared into Zephyra´s eyes. Their was something sad in them but overshadowed by a great hatred. "Would you let us help you?" She asked.

Zephyra hesitated. Help from a human and her pet? It sounded ridiculous and her proud stood in the way. But in the end her fear that it would take longer to look for them herself and that she wouldn´t make it in time decided for her.

"Please, lead me to my friends." The sentence tasted bitter in her mouth.

"Mistress!" Harimau objected. "I cannot risk your life with humans with weapons that sell mythical creatures."

Eurydice smiled. "I know. But I am confident enough that you can protect me. And besides, what can they do with a human like me with no special powers?"

"But-"

"Please do not object me. If you do, I'll have no choice but to make this an order," Eurydice replied. Harimau flinched. "I understand."

Then Harimau headed east. "Follow me."

"Eurydice turned to look at the woman. "Now, shall we go?"

The police like girl was back! She was seething from all the chaos caused and she lashed out at the troublemakers.

The crowd started dispersing as if this was an everyday scene. In the midst of it, some women started gossiping.

"That is so like her. Unladylike. Taking after her brothers."

"Now, now, thanks to her, we have less problems. She is one tough girl."

"Her attitude ticks me off though."

The three of them stood before a run-down warehouse and Zephyra looked skeptical and glanced at the ice tiger. "Ya real sure that the smell comes from here?"

Harimau growled but Eurydice´s hand held him back to jump at the harpy. "You think I´d lie? If not for Eurydice I wouldn´t even have thought of helping you, stupid bird."

"I warn ya kitty. This bird has claws." She raised her hand which changed into bird´s claws. "Sit down. I don´t want any disturbance." Zephyra stepped forward.

The tiger´s voice made her stop. "I can smell that the other harpies are under the earth. You still wanna avoid our help?"

The rest of the journey was uneventful except for the rainstorms thats hit the forests of furen expectedly making the journey slower and much muddier than it need have been.

They reached a river and took a boat to the islands of Azuriya.

Sandra felt a ripple of excitement when the chain of islands came into view. "I see them!" She said excitedly.


The air was pleasant as the boat reached shore and Leon took equal share of money from everyone and paid the boatsman.

"Find an inn," Leon said, "Then we head to port of tales,"

"How about a beach trip!" Shinra said pumping her fist and Sandra clapped her hands, "Yeah!" she exclaimed

"No." Leon said and walked ahead.

Both Shinra and Sandra grumbled but followed him. Vanessa frowned as suddenly her vision went blurry and she saw an image of a strange beast. She blinked and they image was gone.
"Did I have a physic vision...?" She murmured and looked around but saw nothing but white stretches of sand and beyond that the sparkling aqua of the ocean.

"Vanessa~~" Sandra called from up ahead, waving her arm. "Hurry up~~"

Vanessa sighed softly; shaking her head; "Probably just the sun," she said to herself and followed Sandra.

The harpy flinched and Eurydice noticed it. "And birds like you should watch out for cats like me who would might as well eat you."

Eurydice decided to stop the useless argument. "Easy, Harimau." Harimau obeyed and headed east.

Eurydice turned around to the woman. "Now let's follow him shall we?"

Then Eurydice followed the tiger while Zephyra turned around to see another set of humans getting off the boat. Filthy humans.

"Well here we are" Leon said walking into an actually quiet high quality inn

"We are staying here!?" Sandra said in shock "Do we even have the coins to do this"

Leon held up a bag of coins and tossed it around in his hand "Yes we do" he said "Shinra seems to want to stay in port of tales for a while and im NOT going to be staying in some run down in for a few days... I was against this trip in the first place anyways, by the way, My room has a nice ocean view and is also a suit while all of yours room has a... down town slum view and is not a suit, enjoy your stay" Leon said walking over to the counter and paying the women some coin and then heading up the inns stairs

"Well then shall we go put our stuff in the room and head out!?" Shinra said in a eccentric voice

Leon suddenly stopped cold; his body rigid; his fists closing so tight they became white.

Shinra noticed it as he turned and made his way towards the dining room.

"What the..." she followed him curiously with Sandra and Vanessa trailing behind him.

"Well, well, well" A deep voice drawled. "I thought it was someone I knew,"

Vanessa gasped; her tarot cards fluttering to the floor. "It's him! The beast!" she said faintly and grabbed Sandra's arm.
"What...who...?" Sandra looked confused as she stared at the man sitting in the middle of the room, his arms draped over the sofa back and his legs stretched out with his feet on the table in front of him. His face was hidden behind a skeletal mask and seemed to blend in with his personality so well that it really looked one with the man.

There was a very distinct malicious air about him and Sandra felt a genuine ripple of fear shoot through her just staring at him. The people around him seemed just as frightened of him as she was and they all fell silent as he spoke.

The room was deathly quiet as Leon stood staring at the man.

"I hardly expected to see you here," Leon spoke, his voice sounding controlled.

"Like wise magey," Zalem spoke, "Did the island bore you? Did the riches of the world prove too tempting? Or were you driven out like a worthless lion from his own pride?" He threw back his head and laughed loudly. The sound unpleasant and quite chilling.

Shinra could see a muscle twitching in Aventh's jaw and was surprised. She had never seen him lose his calm before.

When he spoke, his voice was as emotionless as ever, "You speak big for a man who lives nothing more than a life of a cowardly hyena,"

Zalem threw back his head and laughed again, "Touchy," he said with a nasty grin that could be felt rather than seen as he stared at Leon.
