Akira reached her hand out and took hold of his hand. "How do you know my name" asked Akira,she looked up at him. Akira shook her head no. "Not really" said Akira. She was refering to her dress.

"I know a lot about you," turning his back on her. "besides, didn't the senior woman called you just now?"

Akira stared at him wondering what he knows about her. "I.. want to go with you" whispered Akira,she turned her head towards where the woman was,she knew she hasn't seen them yet but that was only time before she does.

"heh. that's the spirit," Futoshi grinned. Kissing her lightly on her flushed cheeks, he whispered in her ears,

"I will come for you tonight. This place is under too much enchantment and human protection."

He disappeared among the willowy trees as the senior lady ran out.

"What are you still doing outside here, Akira?" she asked angrily as she pulled Akira back into the temple.

Akira stared where he disappeared for a few mintues and then turned to the woman. "Getting fresh air" said Akira as she was dragged inside. The woman took her to her room and shut the door on her way out. Akira shook her head and went to the window and opened it,looking up at the sky. Waiting for night to fall. She didn't know if she was doing the right thing or not. Akira turned and went to small table and began to read some cards,hoping to get some answer about what she was about to do. Her back towards the open window.

A small rat squeaked behind her. Akira turned around. It looked at her expectantly. She got up from her place and looked out. No one was there. Disappointed, she was about to return to writing the cards when her room's door opened with a slam.

One of the priests was standing there, panting heavily.

"C-come quickly," he managed through the pants. "B-big job-b. She's calling for you."

Akira knew he indicated the senior priests.

Akira nodded,walked out of her room and headed to where the woman was,she stopped for a mintue and stared up at the sky. A thoughtful look on her face. She then started walking again. On the table were three cards, the card of visions, fear and confusion. Akira stopped at a big red door.

The junior priest knocked.

"Enter, " a commanding voice spoke.

The junior priest opened the door and stepped aside.

"Only you were invited," he told Akira.

Akira nodded and walked inside. She didn't know what she was going to have to do. Akira looked around the room as she stepped inside.

An old lady was sitting behind an ancient table. She looked up and smiled. She seem too excited for an woman her age.

"sit down, dear. We have an interesting follower today," the woman indicated to her left.

Sitting by the window, a small boy was glancing outside. He turned and it struck Akira how much she was reminded of the squeaky mouse she saw earlier.

"This lit- I mean royal fellow was just telling me how he would help to refurbish this collapsing temple. Look at all the gol- I mean funds he brought!" The woman continued excitedly.

Gold trinkets spilled out of the small rugged bag the old woman held tightly in her hands.

"All he require is your assistance. I would dare say this should fulfill your wish of getting out for a breather in awhile," she winked at Akira.

Jade returned an hour or so later, with a basket full of fruits. She stopped in surprise when she heard sounds of loud cries.

She stepped out from the trees and cried out in surprise as a young boy went sailing past her and slammed against a tree, sliding down and rolling to a stop by her feet.
She clutched her shawl in shock and stared down at him as he stared up at her, "Hi..." He breathed.

She looked up to see a young woman walk up to her, 'Hi, You're Jade Mcfield aren't you?" Kayla said extending her hand. "Sorry about that. They were getting restless so I decided to train them while we waited for you. I found out from the local villager that you'll be needing part time workers? My students and I need some work."
"Oh," Jade shook her hand and smiled at the strange trio. One of the boys was hanging back, looking shy. "Yes, I do need workers for the planting season." Jade said.
"That Elijah, " Kayla said, gesturing to the shy one, "And Erik." she said pointing to the other one who was standing up and dusting his pants, looking at Jade with open interest. "You're pretty!" He announced.
Kayla glared at Erik while Jade giggled, "Come on, I'll get you all break fast and explain the work you'll all have to do." Jade said walking to her cottage with Elijah, Erik and Kayla following behind her.

It was already evening when Jade and the three strangers came back from the plantation. The twins looked exhausted while the woman did merely sweat. Seems like she is accustomed to this kind of work. The three of them had worked really hard and the planting process had gone further than it´d have been without them. The at first sight shy Elijah turned out to be a calm guy but loved the nature. His twin Erik on the other hand was a quick tempered one. Jade had to hide a laugh when she remembered him flirting with her, calling her pretty and such things. And then there was Kayla. She had such a nice aura around her, but there was also something sad in her eyes.

"I know it´s sudden that we have come here so we don´t mind sleeping outside, but we thank you for the meal." Jade flinched and turned around as Kayla´s voice resounded behind her. The woman looked guilty. "Oh, I´m sorry. I didn´t intend to startle you. It´s a habit of mine to walk in silence."
"No, no. You don´t have to apologize. And also in fact I should thank you for helping me. The problem is that I can´t pay you much because...."
"We don´t need money Ms. McField. Meal and shelter are good enough for us." Kayla interrupted her.
Suddenly Erik sprinted into the room. "Hey Kayla. How about another bet? The loser shall serve the winner for a day."
"Not again. He never learns." Kayla sighed, but Jade saw the laughter in her eyes.

Someone was waiting by the steel gates. But it wasn't the rat-like boy. It was the teenager from earlier!

"Hey sweetheart! Looks like you are all set and ready! We will be gone for awhile so have you said your proper goodbyes yet?"

Behind them, a group of priests stood solemnly, watching them.

Jade smiled, "I have cottages out back that you can use while you work for me. The planting season is for 2 months. The first month is draining the land for planting, the second month will be the actual sowing." Kayla nodded in understanding.
"Why don't you and the boys wash up," Jade said, "Dinner will be served soon."

Elijah and Erik bounded into the dining room a while later, looking ravished when Kayla called for them to come to dinner.
'So where are you from?" Jade asked Kayla as they all began to eat.
****

Deep in the mountains of Umoba, a young man held a knife at the woman's throat. "Who is it...." He rasped.
"A young woman..." the older woman stammered, looking scared. "The fire only shows a woman."
He pressed the knife more, drawing a thin line of blood. "Tell me everything," he said.
