"So what is someone like you doing here?" Leon asked as he looked around the room

"I found some new prey" Zalem spoke "So I was just on my way to hunt it"

"If its some village I wont let you leave this place alive" Leon said

"Heh, as always the good boy" Zalem said as he stood up "But, do you really think you can stop me?"

"Ha, you talk big for someone lower than dirt" Leon said

Shinra could feel the tension building between the two men, and knew that a fight could break out at any second, and from the feeling in the air she wasn't all sure that Leon could actually win, she took a look back at Sandra and Vanessa, Sandra who was trembling with fear and Vanessa who just stood there like a statue,. Shinra quickly took out her dagger and stepped in between them and Leon, he dagger up and ready.

Zalem let out a loud bark of laughter, noticing Shinra.
"Is that your bitch, magey? Look how she is snarling already, looking for a fight." Zalem's tone was light, yet all in the room suddenly noticed a change in his body language. Zalem Kreigsherr was getting ready for a fight.

Sandra clutched Vanessa's hand, gripping it tightly. Her breathing coming out shallow. Something big is about to happen, she thought looking from Leon to the new man. These two....they are scary. Sandra thought.

"Put your fist down brute, fighting you would be a waste of my time" Leon said

"HA! for once we can agree on something magey, though its a pity, I don't have the time to wipe the floor with your blood today, my prey is waiting" Zalem said

"This new prey though I am interested in that" Leon said with a grin "And this trip was quickly becoming boring anyways"

"Huh? What are you saying" Zalem said

"Im saying im going to follow you" Leon said "Shinra Leon looked back at Shinra "It looks like we are leaving right now"

"Heh, isolation has made you senile." Zalem said. "Who said you could follow me?" His body seemed to go back into it's relax stance and Shinra slowly lowered the dagger, looking at Leon in surprise.

"I said I could follow you, and I will" Leon said "You dont need to agree to it at all"

Zalem chuckled and sat back down on the sofa, lifting his legs up and resting them on the table. "So you want to follow me magey? Too exciting to turn your back at a chance to see me take down a God?"

"Is a God your target now?" Leon said curiously

"Yep, I know of a place in the Dead sea where a God is said to reside.The place is thick with magic density and I wouldn't be surprised if the rumors are true. My research has showed me that magical artifacts don't work there properly," He rested his elbows on the couch back and looked at Leon lazily. "Weaklings don't last there either so Id be glad to take you along and have you die the death of a dog you deserve."

"Well then its settled, you can take me along as a witness to your demise" Leon said with a smile turning back to Shinra, Sandra, and Vanessa "So will you two be joining us?" Leon asked looking at Vanessa and Sandra "I already know Shinra is coming with me"

Vanessa and Sandra looked at each other then back at Leon, "I think we'll stay here for a few days," Sandra said as Vanessa nodded.

"Very well," Leon said.

"Well, I'm off, meet me at Gardar*, " Zalem said, "If you're not there when I reach there...well you know the rest."

Zalem stood up and without paying for the room he had stayed at or the food and drinks he had consumed, he left.



*Gardar is a town nearest to the Sea of Nyl.

"Well then, Sandra and Vanessa, I bid you good bye" Leon said as he and Shinra left the inn, Leon having already given the inn keeper a nice sum of money

"So what are we going to to?" Shinra asked

"Take a boat of course, and go up the river that flows through Sadoyus... Gardar is near the Sea of Nyl, though by close to it it is still a good few hours walk from Gardar to Nyl, cause they are only able to survive near the river, so in other words they have a small port, so we are taking a boat directly to Gardar" Leon siad

"I see... wait, how do you know this? you've never been off the island" Shinra said looking at Leon

"You did bring me maps in previous attempts to get me off the island" Leon said "And the port is just a guess..."

"Its probably right though..." Shinra said as they made there way to the port, after a few mins they had found a boat and had set off for Gardar

"Uugh, these bandits couldn't have hide in another place, could they? No, it has to be a cave under the city." Zephyra slowly walked the dirty path which led deeper and deeper into the earth. They had found the entry of the hideout inside the warehouse and to Zephyra's misfortune it led into the underground.
There is a reason why harpies hate the earth and humans are so cruel to take advantage of it. I'll not let them off so easily.
Suddenly Harimau stopped and his ears seemed to listen to something. "We are near. I hear footsteps and talk ahead of us." He said.

Zalem slipped past the bustling crowds. It was a typical market day. Useless scums with fake smiles on their faces, he thought. He was about to turn right and instinctively tilted his body backwards as a punch came flying from nowhere. In front of him stood a girl full of authority.

"after one mess comes another," she grumbled.

"Then just run away," Zalem replied sarcastically.

"SHUT UP! You thief! You have no right to talk to me!" The girl shouted angrily. Grabbing him by the collar, she dragged him back to the inn.

Strong, Zalem thought. But I have no time to mess you up.

He shrugged her hands off with ease. "Hey girly. I have no time for games. Cut the chase and tell me what's going on."

He instantly regretted what he said as her anger rose past max. Fumes could almost be seen as she slowly turned around to face him.

Cute.

With monstrous strength, she gave a roundhouse kick aimed at his forehead (which he dodged easily).

"Pay up! The inn manager is crying..." she spoke slowly as though words were hard to come out through the mouth of fire.

Zalem stared at the girl, an evil grin twitching at the corner of his mouth behind his mask.

****

Sandra and Vanessa were lounging in the dining room as they ate a somewhat bland meal- Leon and Shinra had left a few hours ago- when they heard noises.

They peeked out and spotted a face they had never thought they'd see again.

A young girl was standing in front of the towering figure of Zalem.

"Eeek." Sandra squeaked.

"I said- AH" The girl was lifted as if by invisible hands, hanging upside down in front of Zalem.

"Now, how much would you fetch a price." Zalem said lazily. "Im guessing not much as you are but a few limbs broken..." the girl screamed in pain as the same invisible hands seemed to twist her arms at an awkward angle, about to tear them off. "...you'd make a fine sight at the circus."

"Sandra!" Vanessa gasped. "We must save her,"

Sandra gulped and nodded, melting into the wall.

Vanessa was trembling but she ran forward, "Hey! Let her go!" She yelled.

Zalem 's body language seemed bored but they all heard the terrible crack of bones as the girl's arms were broken, followed by her pain filled screams.

He dropped her and turned, walking away.

Sandra appeared out of the wall and caught her before she hit the ground. "Oh god, poor girl. We need a healer!" Sandra whispered, watching as the girl sobbed in pain.

****

Zalem walked to a cliff, overlooking the ocean. He turned, noting the sun and the wind direction, then he leapt off the cliff.
A second later, he appeared, sitting on the shoulder of a giant, winged being and flew off.

The girl could hear voices. She closed her eyes and the tormenting playback began.

"Those eyes," she choked. "I've seen them before. How irritating. To meet someone like him again. So cruel...fate is..."

And she lost consciousness.

"It so horrible. I can't do much. She will probably be bedridden for the rest of her life. at such a young age," the healer sobbed. "she's the sunshine of this town with her good family background."

Vanessa patted the woman gingerly.

"Who is she?" Sandra whispered, not daring to wake the patient up.

"You don't know?" the healer asked in shock. "she's probably the most infamous tomboy in this town! her family's tradition can be traced back to the dark ages!"

"Er...and who is she?" Sandra asked with a quizzical look in her eyes.

"Choi ssi! Ms Choi Chun Hei!" the healer announced, almost ending at a high note.

Vanessa and Sandra exchanged glances. The Choi Family was relatively unknown to them.

"Such a good girl," the healer went back to sobbing.

Chun Hei pretended to sleep as the two girls prepared to leave with the healer. When the door closed, her eyes snapped open. This level of pain was beyond unbearable. She felt numb. And empty.

"Those eyes...reminded me of something I forgot," and she stared at the ceiling with empty eyes for awhile.

Looking at her immobile body, she could see that the healer tried to twist her limbs back unprofessionally.

"Now my movements would be hindered, " she said in a hollow voice. She tried to lift herself up but to no avail. She closed her eyes and remembered Zalem and another guy with messy hair. Their images overlapped.

"Those eyes..." and she turned her head towards the pillow before biting it hard. With great effort and willpower, she bent her right arm inwards. The bones cracked and there was a hole in the pillow. Chun Hei clenched her right fist. It was weak.

She raised her arm gingerly. She had lost the feeling. She closed her eyes and a single tear rolled down her cheek. A fresh wound open in her right arm as a bit of her bone stuck out of the skin. Chun Hei directed her right arm to the left and pulled the other arm in. A grotesque cracking sound could be heard. At least both arms look like they are back to normal positions now...

Out of curiosity, she tried to bend her arms back to the awkward positions. The arms fling back into the curious position without difficulty but she could feel the skin tearing as the boned edged past the cutaneous layer.

"Pfff. Is this how a doll feel like?" Chun Hei couldn't help but laughed. She felt exhilarated. A whole new door of possibilities opened back to her. Just like back then. "ah. have to get out of here soon. Ah Bo Ji said warriors don't need rest when the war starts. Right. Image training step one - visualisation."

And she could see herself sit up from bed like a normal person. "step 2..."

And her hands move to position beside her chest, on the mattress. The bones made a 360 degree turn around the wrist and she pushed herself up, Looks like my muscles are intact though a little tangled up with the bones...

Using both hands, she twisted her legs back to normal position. The mattress began staining red. Se heaved herself up but rolled off the bed onto the ground. Imagining her self in standing position, she steadied herself against the chest drawer. She wobbled towards the window and tilted her body forward before falling to the ground outside the cottage. She cushioned her fall with her broken arms and twisted them back to position. She slowly limped away but not before living behind a daisy with spots of red at the window sill.

Meanwhile, at the other side of the cottage, the healer was bidding the girls goodbye.

"What is it?" Sandra asked Vanessa.

Vanessa looked puzzled. "I have a strange feeling. Like we shouldn't have left."

Shui was surprised when a man stumbled onto the path from the forest. He had bone white hair and travel-worn black clothes. Three Azuriyan swords were sheathed at his waist and he was panting hard as if he had just finished a long hard run. She could see the white of bandages across his chest under his coat and wondered if he had been injured recently. He turned his head, looking down either side of the path and saw her. The tall man turned to face her and asked, "Who are you?"

"I am Shui and you are" said Shui. She stared at him,looking him over as she stood a few feet away from him.

"Fried... Fried is my name..." he said, panting lightly before collapsing atop a rock, gingerly leaning his back against the cool surface. Shui looked at the man as he winced in pain before settling against the rock. "Mmm say... You know how to get to Anizama?" he asked.
