Arianni nodded, carefully going over to Phyros and the cat and crouching next to them, murmuring softly as she let the cat scent her. "It's alright. I'm not going to hurt you." She gently stroked Phyros's head to wake him. "Phyros, sweetie, we need to go before the things that hurt your friend get here. Can you help me get him to let me help him?" Phyros blinked up at her, then began to croon softly to the cat, nuzzling it softly to calm it until it would let her touch it. She carefully examined the wound, wincing at how painful it looked. "I... I don't think bandaging it is going to be enough... It's really deep... How long do you think we have?"

*Reginald began to run towards the the exit of the cave, he fired one arrow towards it. As the arrow left the bow, the lightning around the arrow head activated, causing the arrow heads iron to melt while keeping it's shape. About one second later, you could hear a violent, feline cry. Reginald yelled; "THERE HERE!!" As soon as he exited the cave, you could hear roars and a violent scuffle. You could also hear several thunder strikes as the ground shook under Arianni's feet. As the battle outside raged on, one of the displacer beast entered the cave. Your eyes had gotten used to caves darkness, so you could see the displacer beast for a little, you saw that it's eye was missing. However, the closer the beast got, the harder it was to see it. The Wild cat began to roar as best as it could at it, but the displacer beast knew the wild cat was too hurt to cause any threat to him.*

Arianni's eyes went wide as she saw the beast coming towards them, whistling sharply to Phyros. "Keep him off of me for a few minutes!" She turned her focus to the wildcat, opening herself up to the creature and focusing her mind on it completely as Phyros began to drive the creature back with fire. Cupping her hands around the cat, she dropped the barriers in her mind and drew on the strange power hidden inside her, one she had only ever used once before, and then by accident. "Heal, friend... Take from me what you need, and live..." She pressed her palms lightly against the cat's sides, crying out softly as she felt her energy draining into the feline's body, taking a small part of herself with it, the power fusing them together as it used her life energy to heal the cat.

*The Displacer beast hissed at Phyros. Then, all of a sudden, the displacer beast teleported towards Phyros, or did it? In fact, the displacer beast used it's illusion mana, which it would make a copy of itself appear in front of there opponent. While Phyros would react to thd illusion, the real displacer beast extended it's tentacles towards Phyros. Each tentacle had a beak on each of its tips. The beaks were surrounded by poisoned barbs. The beaks were strong enough to shatter steel.*

Phyros shifted shape suddenly as he dropped from the air, shifting into a species of small jungle cat as he struck out at the illusion before darting away, hissing angrily. Behind them, Arianni slumped forward suddenly, her arms falling to her sides limply as the magic finally released her, the wildcat fully healed.

*The displacer beast would not be denied of it's revenge. It roared at the top of it's lungs. You could tell it was full of hate. It began to rush forward, it's tentacles began to swing wildly in front of it, leaving no room for an open attack in front of. As it neared the 3, a small bolt of lightning hit the displacer beast from behind, making it suffer a tazing effect. It was wide open for an attack.*

Drawing on the last of her strength, Arianni pulled a dagger from her sleeve and threw it with unerring accuracy into the beast's mouth while Phyros and the wildcat attacked the throat, one from each side. "Please, let it be enough...." Arianni slumped to the ground, trembling slightly.

((sorry it's so short))

*As the blade entered it's mouth, he made a harrowing choking noise. At that point of impact, it also felt the fangs of Phyros and the Wildcat. As they ripped it's throat apart, it dropped to the floor, dead. As a puddle of blood formed underneath it, Arianni could hear foot steps. Then, all of a sudden, a ball of lightning rushed towards the ceiling of the cave. It became illuminated. A slightly wounded Reginal was walking towards the 3. He was drinking out of a small capsule. You could see bloodied, wide lashes formed on his arms.*

Want to help me cut up the displacer beasts and remove there eyes? I'll give you half of the profits I'll make from selling there body parts and for completing this mission. I'll even help you rent a room in the nearby village.

Arianni nodded weakly, pushing her hair out of her face to look up at him. There were dark circles under her eyes that hadn't been there before, and she looked as if she had somehow aged just a little from how she had been before. "Thanks... I just need to rest for a moment first... That took more out of me than I remembered..." Phyros shifted back to his natural form and crawled over to nuzzle Arianni's fingers, churring softly, while the wildcat padded away from the body of the displacer beast and plopped down to clean the blood from it's fur, ignoring everyone.

*Reginald left. Minutes later, he was dragging the dead bodies of the beasts. Including the one Arianni killed, there were 5 bodies. He then sat down, across from her.*

Well, that sure was a difficult battle. I'm glad you were able to find your friend, and make a new one. Did you run out of water in your flask?

Arianni checked the flask he'd given her, finding it almost empty. "Oh... I hadn't realized I'd drank that much... Between the heat and all the sand, I'm starting to miss the Northeastern forests. The people might be small-minded there, but at least it was cool and there were streams everywhere... Then again, if I'd never come South, I wouldn't have met you or found the 'cat." She glanced over at the wildcat, biting her lip. "I only hope it doesn't resent me for what I had to do to save it..."

*He tossed another one at her. It was his last spare.*

I was born here, so I'm used to the weather. But I now travel all over the land as a hunter for the Adventures guild. The creature looks fine. I doubt it well resent you. Before you came here to the desert sands, what did you do?

Arianni caught the flask and took a long drink before replying. "I'm a journeyman blacksmith, though I do have other talents as well. I'm especially good with weapon repair, though I've been working on improving my silver- and gold-crafting. I use both blacksmithing techniques and magic in my work, like my father did. He taught me everything I know. I'd come down south looking for an old friend of his, a silversmith who had told me when I was a child that if anything happened to Father, I could come to him. But by the time I got there..." She shook her head slightly, taking another drink. "I hope I never see anything like that ever again. Horrifying doesn't come close to describing it." She watched the wildcat as it finished grooming the blood from its fur and padded over to entice Phyros into playing. "As for if it will resent me, only time will tell. The price of saving it's life was steep, for both of us. I'm not sure how to explain what I did, but it's not your typical healing...."

*Reginald listened to her story carefully. Making sure he heard every detail. He watched as the wild cat played around with the little shapeshifter. Surely, the creature wouldn't be angry later if it wasn't angry now.*

Well, Arianni, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just accept things as they come naturally.

*He stood up and pulled out a skinning knife. He began to skin one of the displacer beast.*

Such nasty creatures. I would never understand why any god like being create such a monster unless they enjoyed to watch lesser beings suffer.

Arianni bit her lip, going over to the beast she had killed and retrieving her dagger from it's mouth, wincing at the damage done to it. "That's going to take some work to fix.... Damn." Setting the damaged knife aside, she drew another from where it was concealed against her thigh and bent to the task of skinning one of the beasts. "It's balance. There needs to be balance, or everything falls apart. In order to have the good, there has to be the bad, no matter how much you wish otherwise."
