"I'll be setting one up when I find a suitable location," Ellie said, keeping a careful eye out for night predators. "What is your name?" She asked looking back at the boy over her shoulder.

"Lovino Vargas."
He stated officially, pointing a finger at himself proudly.

"Nice to meet you, Lovino," The surroundings were completely dark now. Ellie walked till she found a waterhole. "Here is a good spot, plenty of water; although keep a sharp look out for predators, they hunt at waterholes. " she helped Lovino down then began to unload her packs.

"Do you know how to set up camp or make a fire?" she asked
Posted 10/3/11
Lovino shook his head,
"No ma'am."
He replied, scanning the horizon for anything suspicious.
"Antonio says I don't have to work much, so... I don't really know to many laborious things."
The child mumbled, sitting on the ground, then laying on his side.
"I don't like the dark."
Frowned the boy, closing his large eyes.
"And it's damn cold."
He scowled, hugging himself.

"There now, Kiddo," Ellie said kindly and crouched down, picking up 2 sticks, "Come here, I'll teach you how to make a fire and set up a camp. It's basic survival skills and will serve you well."
Lovino sat up and nodded.
"Look for dry twigs, leafs and kindling," she instructed, pointing towards a few shrubs and Lovino got up and began to look for firewood. She, in the meantime, unloaded the supplies.
"Here you go, Ellie," Lovino said as he came back, his arms laden with wood.
"Good job," She gathered the twigs and leafs he brought and made a small nest, she then took out a knife and scrapped it on a piece of wood to create some dust. "It'll help generate friction," she explained. "And is easier to catch on fire."
Lovino crouched next to her, watching intently.
She began to rub the sticks, collecting the dust at the bottom to create more friction; it took a while but gradually a spark ignited, she blew on it till the kindling from the ground caught the spark and a small flame started. She kept a protective hand around it and added more wood till a fire was roaring.
"This takes A LOT of practice," she said to Lovino, "So unless you work hard at learning this skill, you wont be able to light a fire with sticks. But this fire is an important asset, it'll keep the animals away and keep us warm and we can cook food on it."
Lovino nodded, his hands on his knees as he watched the roaring fire.
She then proceeded to teach him how to pitch up a tent. Lovino was small, skinny and slow, but Ellie was a patient teacher. She patted his head when he set up the tent successfully, "Good job, you're a fast learner."

Lovino smiled,
"I do it best!"
He boasted, giving the woman a little hug.
Lovino felt so proud,
I actually helped!
He thought, amazed, as he went into the tent.

Ellie made them some rice and then hefted up the bags containing food up a tree, a little distance away from the tent.
"Why did you do that?" Lovino asked as he took a bite of the rice.
"Animals are attracted to food, this way they wont have a reason to attack the camp," Ellie said, plopping down opposite him and began to eat.
Lovino was so exhausted that he crawled inside the tent as soon as he finished eating and went to sleep.
Ellie sat up a little while longer, outlining routes on the maps she had, then she rolled them up and tucked them inside her bag.
Scanning the surroundings to make sure no wild, curious animal was around, she lay down, putting her arm over her eyes and went to sleep.
****
Early the next morning she roused Lovino awake and gave him some dry biscuits and tea for breakfast; she filled up her canteens while he ate then packed up camp.
"So Lovino, where are you from, originally?" she asked as she led her horse down the path, holding its reigns.
"Azuriya," Lovino replied.
"Well, then we should head there. Your friend might have gone there already and you may be able to find him." Ellie said.

Lovino nodded,
"Great idea!"
He smiled, a rare sight.

Ellie rode towards the shoreline where she knew many fishermen put up their boats for hire. She spoke to them in their native language and discovered that none of them would take her to Azuriya, speaking of some demon's hold over the country.

"Ah," she looked puzzled she walked back to Lovino, "I don't know why they aren't going to Azuriya directly. But, we are heading to Furen now. We'll take a boat from there."
Lovino nodded and Ellie checked her purse and sighed, not much left, hopefully she'd have enough to cover the journey.

"Alright...?"
Lovino gave her a skeptic look,
"What's wrong?"

"Nothing to worry about," Ellie smiled and put a hand on his head, "Let's go."

"You were a great help to us kreiyol. We judged you wrong when you first came to our little group and so we apologize deeply." The elder of the tribe said in their language using the word for a brother outside the tribe. Ray nodded and bow his head when he answered too in the tribe´s language. "Do not concern yourself with it, Elder. You and your tribe aren´t the first and will not be the last one to equal my personality with my appearance. Also I am happy to have been a help to you."

Ray raised his gaze when he felt someone tugging at his pants. A small girl about 6 years old looked up at him with tears in her eyes. "Are you really leaving us Ray? Mila is gonna be sad if she can´t play with you anymore." The girl said using third form while holding a doll in her hands made out of linen and other natural things. Ray knelt down and stroke her small ringlets and smiled sadly.
"Don´t cry, sweetie. I´ll come by some time again and then we can play. So hold onto your doll and next time I will bring her a friend, okay?" The girl, Mila, still had tears in her eyes but nodded slowly.

"Well then I should leave before I don´t want to leave anymore. Soooo...."
"Wait a moment, Ray." One of the women said and pushed herself through the crowd. A high grown, dark skinned woman stood before Ray and smiled at him. "I have a present for you. It´s something my mother gave me saying it contains a genie in it. But I haven´t seen one till now." The woman laughed, drew an orange ornated bottle from behind her back and presented it Ray, grinning. He on the other hand seemed emotionless because he didn´t know what he should think about this but eventually took the flask with a mumbled "thanks".
After more presents and good-bye hugs Ray finally left the tribe and made his way through the grassland of Zaltia looking nothing and all.

Later at night Ray put up a fire and rested beside one of the few trees in Zaltia and went through the presents of the Ilia tribe and stopped by the flask he got and studied it closely. It seemed like a normal flask where women would put parfume in it. Even the size was only about Ray´s palm.

When he opened the flask he only saw an empty vessel inside.
"Doesn´t look like there is a genie inside. Guila must have been right, just a myth." Ray said cynical and put the flask away intending to get to sleep but unfortunately cut himself at the flask´s opening. "Shitty old thing." He mumbled and went to sleep.

"This looks valuable" Alabar was not far from the campsite, a wicked grin crossed his face as he lurked in the shadows "If he came from that way then there must be a town" Alabar chuckled and he walked in the direction of the town.
Later that night a small figure came close to Ray and picked up the small bottle and looked at it, a small girlish voice could be heard "Whats this, I was hoping there could be water in it" the figure sat down with its back turned to Ray "Im very thirsty....maybe theres more things in this guys stuff"
The figure rummaged through finding nothing and left, when it was far enough the figure grew into a full sized man "Maybe I have to watch him for a while, good thing theres a place near by"

Slowly Jeanne began to wake up from the deep slumber in the eternal darkness feeling invisible hands grabbing and pulling at her from all sides, forcing her to wake up and taking her to another place. It had been such a nice slumber full of beautiful dreams and hopes but now it seemed to end, Jeanne thought drowsy but woke up immediately when she felt a new bond form with her and a stranger from outside her cage.

NO! I won´t let that happen. Don´t take me out, let me here you stupid hands! I´m no slave.
Still the dark hands pulled and pulled and parted her from the darkness of her past dreams where she had only been an innocent girl. Jeanne knew she had no free will to resist them but she tried everything in her might to avoid to spent her next few days, month, years with another stupid monster. As a result immense pain struck her body and made her unable to fight anymore.

The monster who summoned me will pay the second my eyes meet his. That I swear with my cursed fate.


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

Despite his good sleep, Ray woke up in an instant when he felt something pressed against his body, something cold against his throat and a hand against his mouth - to prevent him to make any noises. To Ray´s surprise the body felt doubtless.... female? Either way his mind played pranks with him or there really was a woman on top of him.
Hesitating Ray opened his eyes and met with hatred filled mesmerizing amber eyes in a beautiful face. The hand on his mouth was the woman´s and a machete barely scratching his skin.
Even the woman´s voice was filled with disgust and hatred. "I rather suggest you don´t try to speak a word if you want to keep your throat."

Ray thought of a way to get free from the woman without hurting her and him. The idea which got to him was.... not nice but the only way. He sighed and let his tongue slid out and licked the woman´s palm. From one second to the other her face got all red and angry and she pulled back several steps. "You horny bastard!" She shouted but stayed away from him and Ray used the moment to get the two machetes out of her range.
"Not horny, but I needed a way to get free unharmed. So may I now know who you are, woman?" Ray answered, his voice was unfortunately quite arrogant.

Now Jeanne nearly exploded out of wrath. "You summoned me out of the bottle and into this world and pretend to not even know who I am? That´s ridiculous, you pervert. Whatever you say, I`ll kill you and escape men for another more years!" She yelled and dashed forward crashing into Ray.

Alabar grinned as he watched this fascinating scene "I thought it was a genie....and those blades"
Alabar looked at the Machetes and his menacing grin widened as he held up the golden ball in his hand "Might be interesting.....lets see which weapon is better....but for now.....have fun boy with your new toy"
Alabar then turned into the old man from the small tribe he just visited
