"Mr Leon!" Alexa cried, "Oh no, we must help him!"
"But first Erik." Elijah said, looking at his brother whose hands were beginning to slip lower.

Dominique looked around the marsh pit then nodded, "Nana, when I give the signal, cut the vine holding Erik."

"WHAT?!" Erik yelled, "I'll fall in!"
Dominique ignored him, "Okay?"
Nana nodded and reached inside her bag for some knives.

Dominique stepped close to the pit and began to mutter a chant. The air around her began to darken.

Elijah and Erik quietened down and watched , fascinated.

A dark, rope like aura began to circle her, and then shot forward, weaving in and out and around the trees, stumps and logs, the aura linking into each other in an elaborate fashion to form a strong net under him.
Dominique nodded at Nana who threw the knives, hitting the rope with pinpoint accuracy.
The rope cut and Erik fell on to the net, barely a few inches from the mud.
"Come on," Alexa and Elijah ran forward and helped pull Erik on to dry land.

'Whew....thanks..." Erik mumbled, embarrassed.

"Where did Leon and Kayla go?" Elijah asked, looking around.

Leon ran up a tree and jumped off it doing a back flip seeing the lizard right below him and right at the bottom of the tree "How cant his thing move so fast through this area" Leon said as he landed behind the lizard that began to turn around
"Its slow at turning! Hit it!" Shinra shouted and without hesitation Leon ran forward ready to dive under it just to land a hit on it, but as he got close to its back side the beast's tale swung around hitting Leon int he chest and carrying him for a bit before ramming his body into a tree, with a cough of blood and air Leon struggled regain his breathe as the Lucertola reared is large head to look at Leon.
"Get up or you and me both will be this things dinner!" Shinra shouted
Leon pushed on his knee as he stood up and raised his blade "So is it's belly the only soft part on its body?" Leon asked with a smirk
"Nope" Shinra replied already knowing what he was thinking, the Lucertola pulled back its head opening its mouth and struck forward attempting to swallow Leon whole, but instead got a mouth full of wood as Leon dodged to the Lucertola's left side, He quickly raised his blade and slammed the short sword into the Lucertola's eye's only getting it a few inches deep, but he quickly let it go and delivered a round house kick into the bottom of the blade's hilt slamming the rest of the blade deep into the Lucertola's head. The beast let out a roar of pain as it raised its self up on its rear leg's clawing at its eye's in and attempt to scratch the blade out.
"Watch out!" SHinra shouted as the beast came back down tot he ground with a large thud still in pain, its front claws scratched everywhere they could, its mouth lashing around with its teeth, Leon barely dodged jumping back after receiving shallow cut form the beat's claws on his right arm that he had brought up to defend himself.

"What the hell does it take to take this thing down?" Leon said as he watched the beast roar in pain, although it was in pain it seemed to be as lively as ever, the Lucertola clawed at a tree in its blinded rage and started to climb up it with its front half
"LEON!" Shinra shouted
"I know" Leon said quickly drawing Shinra from her sheath, the beast, like before had once again reared its self up on its back leg's, but as seen before, it was never able to stay supported on its back legs for long, so not wasting any time Leon rushed forward drawing Power from Shinra and speeding up to as fast as his current level would allow he quickly got under the beast body and with a swift slash but the beast's stomach wide open, its guts and blood spilling out unfortunately onto Leon and Shinra. The Lucertola roars of pain heightened for a moment as the beast launched up on its rear leg's quickly falling over backwards smashing into a few rotted tree's that fell over with its large body, finally dying from the wound's Leon gave it.
"I think I need a bath" Leon said
"This is disgusting!" Shinra yelled

Kayla looked at Goran's cloaked figure and desperately forced herself to stay on the other side of the clearing. Her urge to attack him and let him pay for the things he had done to Kyle 500 years ago and what he could have done to Erik in Umoba wasn't surprising. Also he was at fault for her being immortal what wasn't really a problem itself. Kayla loved to see Kyle's children grow up but what she hated was that even after Kyle had been captured for a short time, Goran had still intended to not let her help Kyle out of prison and even tried zo kill Kayla even though none of it was his job. It was just his frustration and hurt pride which changed him. Kayla could somehow read it in his aura and in his actions.

For old time's sake Kayla tried to solve this situation without a fight. "I'll not fight you Goran as long as you don't hurt Erik or Elijah. Once we had been friends and that's why I suggest you to give up and live a life other than fighting. If you should choose otherwise you let me no choice than to hinder you in your bad doing." Kayla warned him with serious voice.

Goran just ignored it and walked slowly towards her. "Do you really think you can hurt me, Lamina? I watched you half a millenium and noticed you growing soft. Weak. The Lamina from back then, from before she met this rebel, would show no mercy and attack the enemy without hesitating. But you aren't able to now. You even got your arm cut off by a stronger fighter. Unfortunately I hadn't been there to see it. If I had known.... but well."

Hhmm. So he doesn't know I cut my arm off myself. That can be an advantage if he thinks I got defeated. Kayla thought while deciding her fighting strategy. "Soft isn't equal to weak, Goran. You'd know if you tried. Also don't call me Lamina. I've forsaken that name after I became immortal."

"Don't spout nonsense Lamina. Soft people will never be strong. And I will call you whatever I want."

Goran dashed forward and summoned two dozen wide swords pointing at Kayla. She jumped back into the trees as the swords flew into her direction and luckily got stuck in the thick trunks. Kayla ran parallel to the clearing's edge while Goran aimed continously with more and more weapons at her. Suddenly a flood of weapons tossed down onto Kayla and pierced her body with ease.

Goran stopped his attack abd looked at the many swords, axes ad other weapons coming out of his prey's body. "That was easier than I thought." He said proudly but his grin left his face when Kayla´s body dispersed into flames. "What the..." Suddenly he felt metal pressing against his back and he went still. "Your little fire tricks won´t save you for long, Lamina. And it´s a disgrace for a weapon fighter to use any kind of magic."

"Well, but this trick how you call it, did good now. That´s all that matters. About not using magic. Weapers use magic even if they aren´t aware of it themselves. So this time I say: Don´t spout nonsense, bastard." Kayla answered and Goran quickly turned around and jumped backwards. As he did his hood came off and revealed a terrible scarred face. Kayla´s eyes widened and stood still for a moment.

"How can this be?"

Antonio frowned.
"Damn. While I was talking to you two I lost my partners."
Then the man shrugged.
"Oh well. I just have I feeling I should get back to Azyra, you two wanna come?"
He asked the two, who were... holding hands?
"Lucky."
Antonio grumbled, pursing his lips in a scowl.

Leon walked over to the creature's head, sheathing Shinra as he made his way over, he knelt down and yanked his short sword out of the beasts eye and then proceeded to cut into the beast chest area
"What are you doing" Shinra said "Were already covered in the things blood and guts, isn't that enough? in fact, I would say its too much"
"Im just collecting some meat... food" Leon said as he took out some brown pieces of paper and after salting up the chunks of meat wrapped them up in the brown paper and put them back into his pack "There we go, that should keep them preserved for a few days... of course by then we probably would have eaten them all" Leon said with a small laugh.
"So... about the blood and guts..." Shinra asked
"Well ill obviously need a shower and you need a good cleaning, but for now a dip in one of these pools of water should suffice" Leon said as he walked over to a small pond and jumped right in washing off everything he could and scrubbing Shinra down as much as he could "There, all better"
"For now" Shinra said as Leon got out of the small pond
"Now then, lets head back and see if Kayla has returned and if the kids are doing okay" Leons aid as he started on back towards the kids.

waiting and waiting
"Im going after her," Erik said and Elijah nodded, "Yeah, lets go."
"You two will just end up lost," Dominique sighed and sat on a log, "It is best we wait for them here."
"What if Mr Leon is killed?" Alexa wailed, "I must save him." she looked around wildly at the confusing swamp, "I dont know where he is!!!!" she cried
"Noisy." Dominique said irritatedly, "My head is pounding," she groaned.
"I have some herbs," Nana said quietly and looked in her back for some soothing herbs.
"I see him," Alexa yelled and waved, "Mr leon, are you okay!!!?"
Leon walked towards them and nodded, "I am, is Kayla back yet?"
"No, we are going after her," the twins chorused.

the two twins turned away from Leon, determined to go into the swamps to search for there missing teacher, but before they could walk off Leon placed a hand on each of there shoulder's that caused them to turn around and look at Leon who had a soothing smile on his face.
"Ill go look for her, but I need you two to stay here with the girls, you two have been traveling for a long time right? then you have some survival experience. I do not want you to move form this spot... do you hear me?" Leon said, his once soothing and calming voice now holding an air of command much like Kayla's did when she ordered the twins to do something. the two brother looked at each other then back at Leon and nodded "Good" Leon said walking in between and past the two "Then, I shall return as soon as possible" he said and with that once again disappeared int other swamps leaving the kids on there own once again.

***

"Why did you leave them? it might be dangerous if they are by themselves" Shinra said as the two zipped through the dense mangroves of the swamps
"I didn't feel any threatening presence and what ever made Kayla run off instead of taking care of the Lucertola... its making me uneasy" Leon said
"Is that just a gut feeling of yours?" Shinra asked
"ah haha... you caught me" Leon said with a playful laugh
"Then lets find her and return quickly... this entire situation with the Lucertola has ME feeling uneasy"

"By the gods, what happened to you?" Kayla gasped in surprise and was one moment distracted. A great mistake which gave Goran the chance to land a strike at Kayla. Her right arm bleeded but the warrior took nearly no notice of it. She just stared at the scarred face, this time more attentive of what was going on in front of her eyes. It wasn´t the scares which held Kayla captive. It was Goran´s eyes. His eyes which once held some warmth in them now were cold and filled with pure hatred. "Doesn´t matter what has happened to me. I don´t need your pity. I just want to KILL you!"

Goran screamed out loud and summoned a giant axe aiming at Kayla´s bare throat. The attack was easily blocked with a shield just inches before her face. Not only concentrating on her Weaper skills, Kayla used her fire magic and made a whip out of flames. Making two steps aside she swung her whip and aimed at Goran´s throat. It circled around it and left burned skin and the bitter sweet scent if burned flesh. Goran grabbed the whip with his gloved hands and tore it off, panting.

"Just give up, Goran. You have nothing to win. I can´t die." Kayla stated but Goran just didn´t want to listen. He just dashed forward again and again. Without pausing for a second he attacked Kayla continously but either she dodged or got slight cuts.

She and Goran were having a strength combat when suddenly there was a noise of rustling bushes. But neither of them dared to break eye contact.

Leon burst into the opening and without wasting anytime sprinted in between the two warrior's and quickly faced Goran, Goran, seeming to only be focused on Kayla, but now slightly more focused on Leon didn't stop charging forward
"Leon!" Kayla shouted form behind him, but Leon now fully focused on his new target ignored her words and sprinted forward holding his right palm to his side as if ready to strike with it and with amazing speed and accuracy as he neared Goran him palm landed a direct hit on Goran's chest bypassing all of his defenses
"Crushing Chi Palm!" Leon yelled as his palm met with Goran's chest.
Goran felt a crushing wave of energy rupture through his body just before falling to his knees gasping for air clinching his chest where his hear would be coughing up a bit of blood. Leon jumped back and took a stance his right arm extended with his palm out
"Who the hell is this" Leon asked not bothering to look at Kayla focusing on his prey
"What the hell did you do to me, Bastard" Goran looked up still clinching his chest
"Hurts doesn't it?" Leon said "I sent a wave of chi through your body... its best that you retreat for now"
"Retreat? ha, do you think something like this will keep me down for long? I'm immortal" Goran said as he tried to stand up but due to the pain and wounds that were inflicted on him he fell back down to one knee.
"Even if you are immortal your lungs have been ruptures and year heart is probably having a very hard time dealing with that fact" Leon said
"Tch... well meet again... Kayla~" Goran said teasingly and as quickly as Leon had appeared Goran disappeared

"Well... now that thats over shall we head back?" Leon said turning back around to Kayla
"What the hell are you doing here!? shouldint you be looking out for the kids!?" Kayla shouted
"I took care of the Lucertola and there were no other threats in the area... as for you, who the hell was that?" Leon asked
"No one you need to be concerned about... something form the past" Kayla said diverting her eye's slightly
"Well I wont dig too deeply into it" Leon said "But we should really head back"
"You said the kids were safe right?" Kayla asked looking back at Leon
"Yes... they are perfectly fine" Leon said
"Good then we can spend some time treating your arm" Kayla said walking over to Leon taking his right arm
"Ah... you noticed..." Leon said with a nervous smile and laugh
"Of course I did... its fractured in multiple places, your lucky it wasn't broken! your also lucky that the other mans wounds were severe enough to force him to retreat... im sure that was a one time move" Kayla said as he poked Leon's arm a few times figuring out where all the fractures were before wrapping it tightly in some bandages making a small makeshift splint for it.
Leon grimacing at the pain every once in a while was relieved when Kayla was done with your field wraps "Well... I haven't exactly studied that attack very much and I guess I was a bit over confident"
"Too much for you to handle right now!" Shinra said teasingly "But im sure you will eventually get it... maybe"
"Thanks for the vote of confidence Shinra" Leon said and then gave a smile to Kayla "Well then? shall we head back?" and with that Kayla and Leon began there trek back to where the kids were.

The teenagers were sprawled here and there, waving away the flies and mosquitoes with leaves. Luckily, no creature attacked them while they waited.
They heard footsteps and sat up.
"Kayla!" The twins yelled when they saw her and got up, rushing over to her. "Where did you go? Are you okay?"
"You're bleeding," Elijah pointed it.
Kayla tapped both their heads with her fist, "Stop making a fuss and I know Im bleeding. Lets get out of here."
She motioned to the girls who picked up their bags and stood up, "Lets go," she shot a look over her shoulder as if looking for someone then ushered them out of the clearing.
"Back to Azuriya and out of this place," Kayla said. "Hopefully, I wont see him again."
"Who?" Erik asked but Kayla didnt reply.
Soon the hectic trek through the swamps distracted the youngsters and they asked no more questions.

Kayla, Leon and the kids were tracking an indefinite way, the teens walking in front. The forest got thicker and thicker by the second and they had to cut off many branches to get forward. "You could help us you two!" Erik and Elijah said aloud at the same time while pushing leaves out of their way. Kayla and Leon just stood there and walked after them. Kayla had, for some weird reason, a sword with red stones embedded in her right hand and continously looked around as if she was awaiting for a monster to jump out of nowhere. Well it happened a few hours ago so the teens wouldn´t complain.

Dominique and Alexa stopped shortly before a big swamp oak which was covered with many climbing plants and a beautiful flower. "Oh that´s awesome. Such an unique little thing." Alexa said in awe and then flinched back when Kayla stomped over it and surrounded the tree. "We don´t have time to watch mother nature. You can rest if we reach the Azuriyan border." Kayla somehow ordered and lead the way to get them forward fourth times faster. Still watching her surroundings.

What Kayla and the others didn´t see were the little beings suddenly appearing around the tree and staring angrily after the adventurers. They squieked loudly for a moment and then disappeared like nothing happened. The only thing that changed was the swamps emotions towards the seven people.

"Why are the trees getting thicker?" Alexa complained as she chopped up a branch with her sword.
"If you ask me," Dominique said as she trudged after her friends, "The ground is stickier,"
"Lets just keep walking," Erik called, "We should see civilization soon enough."

"Shit, where the hell are we? I don't see anything because of the trees and bushes." Someone cried out. Kayla and the others had walked for hours through this forest aiming for the Azuriyan border but still didn't get far. Or get to the same point they had been before. Normally Kayla and Leon had a good orientation sense but this time it somehow failed completely.

On top of it, there appeared dark, heavy fog hiding the entire surrounding from the bare eye. The group stopped, not wanting to get parted. Several minutes went past and nothing happened except for the noises of the swamp.
"We still have to go forward. Everybody hold someone's hand and form a chain." Kayla spoke out and as soon as the chain had formed she started to march through the swamps again trying unsuccesfully to get out of the fog.

"Stop it, Kayla. We can't go further or one of us might get hurt. Also it will be dark anytime and we have to build a campside or find another dry place." Leon exclaimed and forced Kayla to stop. Since the thing with this stranger she behaved completely odd. Kayla wanted to answer Leon when Alexa suddenly shouted out. "Hey, everyone. Look over there. There's a huge mansion in the middle of nowhere." She pointed to their right.

And really. There stood all alone a mansion appearing through the fog. the windows all dark. "Let's go in their as long as the fog is still here." Elijah said and the other teenagers nodded starting to walk to the mansion. Letting Kayla and Leon no choice but to follow them.

"You don't think we should stop them? a Mansion int he middle of the swamp seems to stick out like a sore thumb as just a bad place to go" Leon pointed out to Kayla who only shook her head in response.
"I dont know why... but I feel the mansion would be much safer than staying outside in these woods..." Kayla said
"I cant exactly disagree with you on that... but the safe feeling the mansion is giving me is still..." Leon said stopping before he could finish his sentence
"Your just worrying too much" Shinra pointed out "Plus maybe the place has running water, and you do need a shower"
"Yes... maybe your right" Leon said "I guess I'm just a bit paranoid form all my years on that island"
"Yep yep! that's right!" Shinra said with a giggle, just then both Kayla and Leon stepped through the doors and into the mansion, the kids already looking around inside of the large house.

The place was well furnished but seemed to have been abandoned for months, if not years. The furniture was covered with bedsheets and the floor was full of dust, cobwebs visible on the ceiling.
"It looks like an abandoned mansion," Kayla said.
"But in relatively good shape," Erik said as he pulled off a sheet to see a moldy sofa. "Well...somewhat."

"Watch out for rotting floorboards," Leon called out to the girls who were venturing towards the dark hallways. The teenagers separated as they looked around.

There was a loud thump followed by loud curses then Alexa's excited voice, "Mr Leon, you wont believe this, there is running water!"
