    Raven almost didn’t notice the fact that Deniel followed her into her own tent. She just felt his presence but didn’t turn back to scold him or redirect him since she knew he would figure it out eventually. Instead, she went straight to the small table on the other side of her room and placed the still twitching rabbit on it. It took a moment to completely analyze the room before returning to Raven who by that time had walked off to her bed. She remembered throwing her satchel down there. It had some books she wanted to read. She also remembered asking Kuroe to bring a change of clothes for her. Now just where could he have placed it?

    Her room wasn’t completely empty. In fact, she had a table, a chair, a bed and even a small dresser. They sure had gone all out for her. Maybe it was because she was a girl? Whatever it was, the only thing she was missing for the night was some food. Well, she knew she had bought some apples with her so since she missed dinner that would have to do. Maybe she should share with Deniel? She wasn’t sure if he had eaten anything or not.

    In the end, Raven ended up dragging herself to Deniel’s tent with two apples in her hands. One of them, she was already munching on and the other one was just sitting on her palm waiting to be eaten. She casually walked in to the tent but found the sleeping figure of Deniel instead. So he must have gone to sleep already. What surprised her was the fact that his room was really empty. Oddly enough, all he got besides a bed was a coat hanger. How weird.

    She didn’t stay to ponder on it more than enough. She returned to her own tent, found Kuroe asleep on the table next to the rabbit and placed the apple with them. They could have it when they wake up. Without going to bed, this time she grabbed the other clothes Kuroe bought along and with unhurried speed made her way up to where the waterfall was. She seriously can’t possibly sleep without a bath, now could she?

    Raven had her eyes to help her see whether someone was around or not. As it gave a green signal, she discarded her clothes and wrapped a thin towel around herself before sinking further into the water. It was cold but not cold enough to have Raven’s teeth chattering. It was the type of cold she was used to. It was fine and after a while, quite soothing as well. She kept herself busy there for ten minutes. The clothes Kuroe had picked up for her consisted of a long gray cardigan along with a black tank top and white skirt, a pair of black knee high socks and white shoes. The skirt has black lace at the very end. The pair of socks too had black lace at the top part. It was very raven like.

    Slipping it all on, she finally gave out a satisfied sigh. She felt just great. She could happily go back to sleep now…or so she thought.

    Very shortly after Deniel wished Nidhogg a good night, he fell asleep. He was exhausted from the day, not to mention the Nephalem didn't necessarily have anything on his mind that would keep him up. Him and his sword were so engulfed in their sleep, that neither of them noticed Raven when she entered his tent. The both of them just lay there, resting. The reality was, Deniel didn't eat anything all day, but his body didn't necessarily mind. He wasn't a person who could go for weeks on end without food, but a day wasn't going to kill him at all. In his sleep, Deniel shifted, tossed, and turned a little bit on his bed. His face also showed that his sleep wasn't necessarily the most comforting. His body wasn't in any stress, it was all his mind. It was all the dream he was having. Not too long into his sleep, Deniel's eyes slowly opened themselves. His red eyes illuminated their light when he opened up his eyelids, and even though he tried to fight back the feeling, he couldn't. He woke himself up, with his eyes wide open, as if he didn't go to sleep at all. "Damn it..." He lazily slipped himself off of his bed, grabbing on to his sword while he got off. He put Nidhogg at the left side where a belt would usually go, and used it as a spot to keep Nidhogg in place.

    Deniel made his way out of his tent, not bothering to check if Raven was still in hers. He was wide awake, unlike most people who would probably be half-asleep at this time, and he hurriedly made his way into the woods near the camp. Deniel wasn't too far to the waterfall where Raven had just finished bathing herself, but he had no idea she was there. He just found a spot where he suspected no one would be at, found a few bushes, and then unzipped himself. Moments later Deniel expressed a sigh of relief, as if a heavy burden was just lifted from him. And the sound of a small stream of liquid hitting the bushes and ground was heard for around thirty seconds or so, before Deniel zipped himself back up, and was ready to head back to his tent to go to sleep. Before he could take more than a few steps, he heard something rustling in the bushes behind him. Deniel's very first reaction to something like that was danger, since his mind was trained that way.

    He swiftly drew his sword from its scabbard, at the moment the creature in the bushes revealed itself. It turned out to be a human being, which had dropped Deniel's guard, but there was something off about him. The man was out of breath, and he seemed to be dressed in a lab coat, along with fear in his eyes. Spotting Deniel, the first sign of another person, he called out nearly as loud as he could, enough to where Raven not too far away could hear: "PLEASE HELP US!" Deniel cringed at the noise, and sheathed his sword Nidhogg back in its scabbard. The professor in front of him collapsed on to his knees, exhausted from the journey that he made over here as quickly as he could. Deniel followed him down on his knees, and gripped him by the shoulders. "Woah....slow down, there. What's happened that you need assistance with?"

    “PLEASE HELP US!” Raven heard a tired as well as terrified voice come from behind her. She deduced that it wasn’t far away from her since she was able to hear his frantic voice very clearly. Raven was still at the waterfalls with a towel in her hands.

    “Raven! Raven! Where did you go?! I heard someone calling for help!” Kuroe pushed out into the open from behind some trees. He was panting heavily which indicated that he had been looking for Raven for quite a while. The black bird halted when he saw Raven standing next to the waterfalls with a towel running over her hair.

    “I heard the sound too, Kuroe,” she tossed her towel and old clothes at the crow. “I’ll check it out. Please take those back to the tent and come find me,” she instructed the nodding crow before turning to where she heard the voice come from.

    She soon found Deniel standing over an old man with odd clothes. Well, it wasn’t really odd but she wasn’t expecting to find someone with a lab coat in an island like the one they were in. “What’s going on around here? I almost had my eardrums broken from someone screaming,” she commented as she walked towards the two men. The professor looked up at her voice. Raven noticed that he was very pale; so pale that it looked like he saw a ghost. His lab coat was dirty and his out of breath countenance was enough to tell her he was running at his top speed.

    “Please, calm down and come with us back to the camp. We will get you some water. You can rest and slowly tell us what’s going on,” she told the professor and grabbed his hand. His legs shook a little when he tried to stand up but with Raven’s support, still managed to do it. Raven gave Deniel a signal to follow them with her eyes and slowly guided the still shaking professor towards her tent. He looked like a small child waiting to get scolded by his mother as he followed Raven. Halfway through, she found Kuroe who was looking for them.

    He instantly shifted to his half human form to give Raven a helping hand. He took the professor off her and walked ahead of them as Raven followed behind. Within a few minutes, the professor was seated on Raven’s bed drinking a glass of water that Kuroe handed over to him. He seemed to drink from the glass greedily. If Raven didn’t know any better, she would have thought that the professor have had nothing two drink for a week.

    “Now, will you tell us what you were running away from?” she asked as she stood to the side, petting the rabbit she had found in the wild. “My name is Lawrence. I…no…my research team and I were conducting some experiments in the mountain. But…something went wrong quite awfully while we were probing into the secrets of that place. We need help…”

    The professor didn't answer Deniel. He just sat there on his knees, panting with his ghostly face, and looking at the ground in terror. Whatever he had seen, it was still vividly in his head, and traumatizing to him. Just before Deniel was going to try again, Raven showed up, not surprisingly. She seemed to control the situation a lot better than Deniel did, so he just took a step back and let her do whatever she pleased. He just gave a small scoff and crossed both of his arms on his chest. He didn't even bother providing her assistance, but it's not like she needed it. After Deniel had begun to follow once she beckoned him to do so, and very shortly her pet Kuroe came in and took the professor out of Raven's care, and into his own, going ahead of her and Deniel back to the camp. In the very back, behind Raven and Kuroe, Deniel was thinking about what had just happened, and the potential danger behind it. Nidhogg, you awake? He asked his sword inside of his head while he thought about the possible outcomes. Right here with you, Partner. Deniel smiled to himself and nodded, Good. I have a feeling I'll need you in the coming events.

    Now Raven, Kuroe, the professor, and Deniel were all inside of the tent. However, Deniel seemed to have almost lost his interest. His earlier suspicions about Raven having much more in her tent than he did were confirmed, so grumpily the Eclipse Soul Guildmaster looked around at Raven's stuff, and wandered off to the other side of the tent to inspect her table that she had in there. He rubbed one of his fingers across the wood, and thought to himself: I didn't even get anything other than a coat hanger. And she gets all this? I'm certainly not popular... Despite his observation to Raven's tent, he wasn't oblivious to what the professor was stating.

    Apparently his name was Lawrence, but what he was saying was quite vague. Deniel frowned and approached him and Raven with his hands behind his back. "Tell us, Lawrence, what exactly did you guys stumble across that's got you so worked up?" The professor shook with fear, and took a large gulp of his water before he had begun the next part of his story. "We have been here for quite some time, researching the strange division within the mountains. When a few days ago, while digging, we had come across something strange. It was unusual, biological readings and some strange....liquid had started to leak from the ceilings." Deniel scratched his chin as he thought about what Professor Laurence was saying. It wasn't really anything he had heard before. This was something completely new. "We thought this could perhaps lead us to explaining the mountain's strange behavior, so we dug more. Until we found these.....pods. Thousands of them. Millions, even! And then....that's when it happened. Monsters erupted from these pods. They started killing everyone. They were unstoppable! They were huge....The monsters....they're still killing them! PLEASE! YOU HAVE TO HELP THEM! MY WHOLE TEAM IS IN THERE!"

    Deniel stood there in silence for a brief moment. In any other scenario when he heard the word "monster" and he had to defeat it, a smirk would come across his face, but this seemed much more serious. Right now lives were at stake, and he couldn't afford to mess around. He gave a glance at Raven, and nodded at her. "We can't afford to endanger the kids, Raven. We need to go now and....take them all on by ourselves. Are you up for the challenge, Sabertooth Guildmaster?"

    “You’re right, we can’t risk our students’ lives,” Raven agreed, walking in circles around the tent, taking a few moments to come up with a good plan. They had no idea what they were up against. What kind of monsters were they? She knew she should have asked the professor, but he looked so scared that she didn’t think making him remember all those events again would be for the best. If anything, they had few clues already. Whatever these things were, they were dormant till the scientists prodded too deep into them. Their nosy intrusion is what caused the disturbance which in turn caused those monsters to come out of their dormant state. What the professor described sounded something like a hive to her and if that was correct, then they would need all the help that they could get. “Maybe we should let the students know…They should realize that they could be attacked any second and that they should take necessary measurements for it,” Raven changed her mind after a long pause. Leaving them while they were sleeping probably would not be the best solution. “While they take shelter, we will go up the mountain and see what’s going on ourselves…maybe Lawrence’s friends are still up there and could help us get some clue in how to destroy those monsters”.

    She went out of her tent after saying that. In camps like the one they were in, there should be a communication lacrima in the middle of the whole camp and there should be some kind of place to hide in case of emergencies. It took her a few minutes but soon, the stage like place that Deniel and Raven gave their speech on came to her view. There! That place should have the communication lacrima she was searching for. True enough, when she stepped on to the stage, she saw the mike that they used that morning. It was probably lacrima run because she saw no cords attaching it to anything. Raven wasted no time in marching up there are grabbing it after taking a deep breath. This was going to be one hell of a wakeup call for all of them.

    “EVERYONE, WAKE UP!” Raven yelled, already hearing some soft groans and complaints rising out of the numerous tents. A few of them shuffled out of theirs immediately after hearing her voice. Most of them were the older ones who probably did know something was going awfully wrong. “WAKE UP! This is an emergency. I want all of you to wake up and get ready to defend yourselves if that’s what it takes. However, for now, I want all of you to put the security systems up and go hide in the emergency room underground. I’m pretty sure we have that…” she informed everyone through the mike. More kids got up at the sound of emergency and the ones that were stubborn enough to still sleep were dragged out by the other kids. Surprisingly, none of them panicked as badly as Raven expected them to. In fact, as if it was programmed in their brain, they followed a line towards what she guessed was the room she was enquiring about. The older ones were leading the younger ones and Raven sighed, seeing that the whole thing wasn’t causing too much disturbance. They probably trusted the two powerful guild masters.

    Turning to Kuroe, she instructed him to take the professor into the room as well and stay there just in case something goes wrong. She also made sure that she had some of her crows placed around the camp so that they would inform her straight away when something goes wrong. Now all they had to do was actually find out what was going on.

    Deniel was glad that she at least agreed with him. He was about to run off to see if he could find those monsters and start taking them on, but she reminded him that they needed to have a much safer approach to it. The kids weren't necessarily safe inside of their tents. He was far too excited to take on these monsters to even think about doing anything else, so the plan she came up with he agreed to almost right away. Nodding, he watched her exit the tent and then took one more glance at Lawrence. He said nothing at first, and just closed his eyes before heading out of Raven's tent himself. "I'm going to prepare myself for battle." He saw Raven making their way over to the stage, and would have joined her, but it wasn't a two person job. She could handle it herself. Instead he went over to his tent next to hers so he could prepare himself in peace. In reality he didn't need to prepare himself for any battle. It was just something for him to do in the meantime, and more people's lives were on the line here than his own. If he and Raven fell...dozens of innocent children would fall for sure. And if not the children, surely these creatures wouldn't stay on the island.

    "I feel like the fate of so many people is in my hands, Nidhogg." Deniel sat down on both of his knees inside of his tent, placing his katana right beside him. He closed each of his eyes, as if to meditate or clear his mind. "What's the matter? Can't handle it?" Perhaps he couldn't. Up until now he's lived as a very selfish person, worrying about his own life rather than anyone else around him, and being very apathetic to what happened to everyone else. If he ever failed a task, all that meant was he was either dead, or defeated. Now, if either of those happened, perhaps Raven would fall, too...or worse. "No...I can handle it. I can do this." Despite all of the commotion going on outside of his tent, Deniel remained trapped in his own mind and world with Nidhogg, ignoring everything on the outside. He didn't believe his own words at first, but as he opened his eyes and grabbed on to his blade at his side once more...he said it again. "I can do this. Raven and I will live to see another day. As well as every last one of those kids." The noise outside seemed to die down, which meant that Raven was probably done with rounding up everyone and putting them in a safe place. Wherever that was.

    Walking outside of his tent, he found Raven placing....ravens--shocker--around the camp perhaps to monitor it. He walked right beside her, giving a single glance straight into her eyes: "Let's go." With his sword still in his hands, and his mind set in the right direction, Deniel took off straight into the woods outside of the camp, and began to head towards the mountain at the center of the island.

    After one more look around the camp, Raven was confident that anything or Anyone would come in or go out of it. By the time that Deniel came out of his tent, all of the students had quietly made their way into the emergency room below the camp. She had heard a few of the kids, mostly the young ones, cry and cling on to the older ones. And some of them, the daredevils, were getting excited and probably were thinking that they should go along with the two guild masters. Most of them, however, were just going with the flow undoubtedly confident in the two powerful mages. Since she didn’t want to scare them, she also made sure she smiled confidently at the few young ones that gazed at her with unsure orbs full of worry.

    When they all went in, Raven found herself sighing heavily. Her countenance dropped from confident to worry. Earlier that day when she first reached the camp, Raven was looking forward to a fun week full of magic and its strange mysteries and the countless possibilities behind it. Twenty four hours had not even run past them yet and they were already facing some unknown enemies. She didn’t even know if they were enemies or even what kind of things it was that they were up against. Was it some demon like her? Or was it an Alien? Or maybe it was some crazy old evil wizard worshipping some evil lord or God again.

    Kuroe had joined the other students in the emergency room. Moments before they left, Kuroe expressed his desire to accompany Raven and Deniel but she knew that her ravens alone couldn’t do anything to fend off any monster if they ever travelled this way. They will always have that clear connection of thoughts and visuals between them. But, in the end, they weren’t made for high level combat. Kuroe had to stay and protect them as long as Raven and Deniel is away.

    She walked to Deniel and past him after a nod. She was asking him to follow her. They had to climb a mountain and it was night time. It wasn’t even a full moon. The night was wearing her best outfit; in a dress made of dark blue fabric, with splash of grey clouds and one big white glowing jewel in the middle. She smiled gleefully at the island below her as her light coated the tall branches of trees and little plants. But like a tease, she revealed a path up the hill to Raven and Deniel but quickly covered it up with dark shadows. She did remember seeing stones and twigs lining the road. There was also a small wind to the right in the path leading up. She felt gravity pull her back as she went up. She didn’t find it too difficult but she was able to make out the difference is effort she had to put on walking on a normal path and on a slope. The night wind talked to them in hushed whispers almost like old spirits warning their young ones about the dangers yet to come.

    Raven moved a low hanging branch away from her face as she took a few more steps forward. Raven felt an itch of annoyance at what she found ahead of her. It was just unbelievable; the thing that was in front of her. To think that when they had to save their magic to fight bigger enemies, the disturbance in the mountains had caused a rock slide and they had to deal with that. Luckily, it wasn’t very bad but their road was blocked with boulders. She even saw some big trees mixed up in the mash. “Now, how are we going to deal with this?”

    "Not a problem."
    The journey to the top of the mountain would have been quite the obstacle for any normal human. He took off first, but Raven was the one that wanted him to follow; there was no point in arguing over who should be in front of who, so he did it anyway. He gave a glance up at the grey clouds that covered the sky, and then back down at the trail that they followed. It was a nice night, one that he could have perhaps relaxed to and enjoyed in sweet solitude, but that wasn't going to happen. There was a tense look in his eyes, like Raven he was in thought about what exactly these monsters were. He didn't like the sound of what Lawrence had said...pods. There was only one other thing in the world that had pods as far as Deniel could tell, and if it turned out to be what he was suspecting, then this would be a complete nightmare for him. Of course, to retain his strong image, he never informed Raven. The weight of the mountain did not bother Deniel, as he was used to climbing up a much more arduous slope over and over again. His black boots sunk deep into the mountain with every step that he took, leaving behind quite a hefty footprint occasionally when the surface became soft. His mind once again began to preoccupy himself as to what these creatures were, how strong they were, and how many there were. Lawrence stated that the number of pods were in the thousands, and if all of them had managed to escape, then he and Raven could be in for a long fight.

    His thinking distracted him from paying attention, so the low branch that Raven moved away from her face recoiled, and swung itself right back into Deniel's face. "Ow!" The wood smacked straight into his noise, causing him to stagger back a single step, and his loud voice echoed in the mountains. Luckily for them it wasn't audible enough for anything atop the mountain, particularly the 'monsters' to hear. He wiped his nose and moved under the branch, joining Raven in front of the road block. She seemed clueless as to what to do. Each of them could have easily used a single Spell to reduce all of these rocks to rubble, but both of them wanted to save as much Magic Power for the upcoming fight as possible. Luckily for both of them, Deniel knew exactly what to do. He took several steps closer to the pile of boulders and trees, placing his palm on one of them. He gave a slight push of force with his hand to determine the hardness and size of the rock, and shortly after that he did the same to a tree that was trapped between two of the rocks. The rocks were rock solid. Moving just one of them would require both hands of Deniel, and if he even did move one of them, he and Raven would be in danger of what would happen should this pile be disturbed. But even the hardness of the rocks wasn't enough to stop him.

    He took a pace back from where he was standing, and firmly placed his right hand on the hilt of his katana Nidhogg, and drew the black blade. As the metal came out of its scabbard, it reflected and shined the light of the moon gloriously, posing an even larger effect for such a simple action. Once every last inch of the blade was drawn, a moment of silence passed by. A small gust of wind formed, but it was not the same direction of the one that had occurred earlier. This one was created from the massive strength and power of Deniel himself. Abruptly with almost no warning, he began to hack and slash. Holding his left hand, which contained the scabbard, behind him, Deniel swung the jet black blade several times, but not a single one of them came into contact with a rock or a tree. His first slash was horizontal, spanning through the entire blockade, whilst the second one was a vertical split right down the center. That would divide it into four pieces, and the rest of them were used to split these four sections into smaller bits, particularly aiming for the rocks as they posed the biggest threat. After a countless number of swift slashes, he finished it off with one last one that was so powerful, it brought his body in a full one hundred and eighty degree turn, so he was now facing Raven. He dropped down to one knee as he did so, and held his scabbard directly underneath his blade, both of them perfectly vertical to each other.

    Slowly, he slid the black blade back into its scabbard, and once he had finished, it gave a brief "Click!" noise. And just as he clicked it back in, the rocks and trees alike shattered. From boulders and trees to pebbles, rubble, and simple chips of wood, the obstacle that blocked their path was quickly removed into a million pieces. The bits of rock and rubble rolled down the mountain along with the force of gravity, passing harmlessly underneath Deniel and Raven's feet. The bits of wood that did not fall down remained, but were no longer an issue or a threat to either of them. Standing back up, firmly on two feet, he one again smirked at Raven, "Lead the way, Miss Raven."

    Apparently, Raven had not needed to lift a single finger. All she did was stay glued to one spot and watch Deniel cut away at the rocks and trees. How wonderful, she thought, he was making things quite easy for the both of them. Most importantly, his control over the blade was perfect. Raven had only learned a little of swordplay back in her world but from what she did learn, she was able to tell Deniel had everything from the structure to the correct angle and position of a sword down. It was embedded in him and she was impressed but she wouldn’t voice her thoughts just like that either.

    “Show off” she called when he was done. Childish as that seemed, Raven was already walking ahead of Deniel with her head held high. Violet hair flew behind her with the cold wind and the moon light outlined her graceful figure. She took slow but long steps to reach the summit faster. If the awakening of those monsters had caused such a big effect on nature, she was half scared to find out what they were. Pods…what could possibly come out of pods? Were they some kind of insect? Bug? Whatever could they be?

    “What do you think, Deniel? What do you think they are? Maybe they are huge insects with even bigger stingers. I mean, I can’t think of anything else. It’s that or aliens and I don’t know how much the latter could be true,” she attempted to start a conversation, feeling that things were too silent or formal between them from the very beginning of the camp. She wanted to change that. Who knows? She could easily find a friend in the rather odd swordsman.

    “Lawrence was really scared, wasn’t he? He was very pale but I wonder how he managed to escape. Maybe others have escaped somehow as well. We should find them. I think they can help us get a better understanding of what we are up against. Maybe…maybe one will just pop out of nowhere right now!”

    Raven snapped her fingers, halting in the middle of nowhere. A pregnant pause and there was nothing. In many books and in many stories, she had read the hero say something ominous and it happening right on that spot. However, by the time she realized reality to be different, she was staring disappointedly at her fingers frozen in a snapping position.

    “This doesn’t work at all,” she sulked and started up again. How sad, though, she was looking forward to something just appearing out of the blue.

    She was so lost in her thoughts that she didn’t even realize it when someone bolted straight towards her from the other side, knocking the violet haired girl back on Deniel who could be behind her. Normally, a girl her age would have screamed bloody murder but Raven was far from normal and that was an established fact. She simply stared at the almost dead looking man who had his head on her chest…She was going to murder him.

    "Oh my..."
    Quite a childish remark indeed, but the Guild Master took no offense to it. He, himself, could be a childish person at times, and took Raven's comment as simply a tease. He knew she was impressed. As she passed by him, he lagged behind a little bit on purpose. He just remembered that she was still wearing a skirt, and he was...about to do a bit of a guy thing. They were heading up a steep slope, and once she was a few feet ahead of him, he started to walk after her, but kept himself low. So low...he could see up her skirt. He only did it for a few moments before walking back up straight. He tried to hold back his laughter, not because he thought it was funny about what was underneath, but simply because he just did that. You're so pathetic... He ignored his sword's comment about him and caught up with Raven. He still walked behind her, just not enough to get a peek up her skirt. The only reason he did it in the first place was simply because he was a guy, and he was curious. He still attempted his best at holding back his snicker from what had just happened. Luckily for him, her little interrogation on his thoughts brought his mind away from it. What were they, indeed? He did have a thought on them being on species of giant bugs...but he did not want to think that. He had quite an unusual fear of such creatures.

    Instead of conveying his fear to her, he said with fake confidence: "I think they're aliens! I mean...come on! If they were giant bugs, why would they affect a whole terrain? I'm certain aliens have that technology." It was a pathetic explanation, but he was hoping that simply believing they were aliens would make it so. If Raven ever saw how he reacted to giant bugs...his reputation, pride, and life could be crushed forever. Her second question to him was one he didn't answer. He merely pondered over it. Lawrence was frightened indeed, so frightened that he simply referred to these creatures as "monsters". Surely he, and the rest of his team were in need of physical and mental therapy through the trauma they could experience. The Guild Master was so rushed into his thoughts that he nearly bumped into Raven from behind with her sudden halt. He observed the path ahead, not needing to look over her shoulder a whole lot due to the height difference between the two. He had no idea while she had stopped, since he didn't hear her earlier, so it just seemed like the two were awkwardly waiting for something. She had also snapped her fingers, as if something were to appear right before her. He shifted his red eyes's gaze down towards her, and sighed. What was she going to expect? She started down the path once again, and naturally he went after her as well. This time, he didn't try to get a look up her skirt.

    They were only a few paces to the path once more before Deniel suddenly felt the weight of Raven right on him. She was heavier than he thought for a girl with that figure. That is, until he noticed it was also the weight of someone else. A man. With his chest buried in her face. Oh, that's just great...she's gonna' blow. Hopefully stopping her before she did, he straightened her out and helped her back on her feet, while he swiftly waltzed around her and yanked the man from off of her chest, holding him in his tight grip. Not realizing it was the touch of humans at first, he attempted to release himself off from Deniel's grip, swiftly jerking his body around as well as his limbs. He was no match for the strength of Deniel, who firmly held him just by a single arm completely still. He kicked and screamed until Deniel spoke over him: "Shut up!" The voice of Deniel was fierce, and filled with rage as well as frustration and annoyance. It was a side of him Raven hadn't seen before, but most definitely one that existed. His threat was enough to temporarily stop the man's movements, as well as his screams, but his heavy breath still filled the air and ceased the temporary silence created by it. Realizing that he was with two friendly faces, he took a moment to moisten his dry mouth to call out: "PLEASE! YOU HAVE TO HELP US!" Perhaps another professor...or a person responsible for digging. His outfit was much more built for digging and field work rather than lab work. While Lawrence had a white coat on, signifying that he was a professor...this one had a different build.

    Obviously, since he was responsible for some of the digging, his build was a lot more muscular than Lawrence, and his outfit seemed to be something a worker would wear. Heavy clothing to protect from any unfortunate accidents, but also light enough to move around in. "Well...we found a digger. We know what's going on, and we're on our way to help. A professor Lawrence escaped, but what can you tell us about these creatures? We'd like to know what we're up against."

    Raven stared at the man still breathing on her chest. If it wasn’t for the fact that she was being supported by Deniel, the woman would have killed the man on her already. But she was red; redder than any other rose. And then she felt Deniel push her up to regain her balance and before long, the man on her chest was pulled away from her. Thank God, she sighed, I didn’t want to murder a guy that was almost dead already. Instead, she childishly pulled her shirt back into its place and directed a spine chilling glare towards the cowering man.

    Apparently, he was a digger from the group of people that invaded the mountain.  He had his workers uniform on which was stained with dirt and mud, what a pathetic picture he painted, Raven thought as she still regarded the man with her glare. She had a feeling that he wasn’t the type of person who would cower in front a girl’s glare on normal situations. In fact, he probably would have taken their earlier “situation” as an achievement. But whatever he saw up in the mountain had shaken him pretty badly; to the point that he was shaking like a leaf in front of Raven despite his strong built.

    Unlike the professor, this guy took longer to process their question in the head. Raven’s glare probably didn’t help the cause much either. In the end, he was on his knees in front of Raven, taking huge breaths to fill his greedy lungs. She managed to get his appearance in her head then. Shaggy hair, pale yellow eyes and a masculine built. That’s all he had. She could smell the faint scent of blood on him which meant that he did get injured during the process of flying for his life.

    “I…I don’t know much,” he finally began, still cowering from Raven’s eyes, “The professors were telling us to dig…we were going to get paid really well so we kept it up and then….and then we came in contact with something hard”. He took a deep breath, still struggling to hold a decent conversation with the winds in his throat against him. “They were…we couldn’t figure out what they were at fist but they looked like insects…they….they were coming out of pods after pods and then..then…blood,” and he grew silent. It wasn’t very helpful but a few questions in Raven’s mind were already answered. Firstly, they really were up against some type of insects; secondly, there are plenty of them; thirdly, some lives had already been lost. But there were survivors and that’s what counted the most. She couldn’t see what expression Deniel made since her back was to him and she was kneeling down to hold the man from falling down. He was about to faint, Raven thought and began to shake him. “Hey, stay awake, we need you to lead us to where you discovered these pods. We need to see if there are any more survivors. Oi!”…

    Not good. He watched as he fell to his knees and began to breathe heavily in front of Raven, as if he had just went through a triathlon. He also noticed the color and look in his eyes; he may have believed another time that his eyes were naturally yellow, but given the level of fear that he had been experiencing, it seemed highly unlikely. Perhaps he had been struck with so much fear that his eye color changed...or he could just be over looking it. And then he began his story, much like how Lawrence told them when they began digging and felt something hard, but unlike Lawrence...he provided an extra detail. One that would change Deniel's look on his forever. insects. Upon hearing that word, the world around Deniel seemingly froze. A small drop of sweat from his hair reached down to his forehead, as his rapidly increased. He could hear each beat ringing in his ears, and blood rushing to his head and through his entire body. He had been hoping it was anything but insects...but now he was told otherwise.

    He was unable to even hear the rest of the worker's story, not that there was much left of it anyway, but now Deniel was in a complete state of fear that he was. The world around him was no longer frozen, and his pulse seemed to rush faster and faster than before. Fear took a grip on his mind and his body. His hand had lightly begun to shake, but to quell it he clenched his fingers into a fist. There was no way he could show something like this to another Guild Master! He had a reputation to maintain! Closing his eyes tightly to cease his actions and perhaps gain control of himself, Deniel attempted to calm his body's reaction down. Slowly but surely his rapid pulse had died down, his hand no longer quivered in fear, and the look on his face returned to its casual and informal look. He had hoped Raven wasn't able to witness him in such a state, and that she were too focused on the digger. Getting back into reality, he looked down to see that he was about to faint, and Raven was shaking him in an attempt to keep him up. "It works better if you do this..." Deniel finally said as he got down on one knee just beside Raven and in front of the digger, and gave him a good old backhand to the face! Of course the Guild Master didn't use all of his strength, else there might have been something more serious than a red mark on the man's cheek, but his slap was enough to get him awake, and fairly angry at him. "H-HEY! W-Wh-What was that for!?" They got his attention again. Raven's suggestion about him leading them to it was something that could help them but...unnecessary.

    "I think it's best we let him go back, Raven. He's seen enough." He stared at the woman for a moment before returning his glance to the digger with shaggy hair. "Listen, there is a safe place not too far from here, but we need you to tell us something: where are survivors? If any? And...where were these pods?" He began to shake and quiver in fear once more. Thoughts about the insects rushed into his head, tearing apart and murdering some of his closest team mates and friends. He didn't want to remember it. Hungrily licking his dry lips taking in a shaky deep breath, he looked back up at the two Guild Masters, "I-If there are any survivors they should be in parts of the cave, or attempting to seek shelter in our research facility just outside. The insects may have already broken through or...they stopped caring. Y-Y-You can....find....you can find the pods in our digging site, you can't miss it, deep within...not like anyone can get that far. They're...they're....oh God! What have we done!?" There was that word again. Insects. There was almost no doubt in Deniel's mind that they couldn't be, but still some part of him didn't want to believe it. The part that had an unnatural and intense fear of such creatures.

    Satisfied with the answer, Deniel held the shaky limbs ascend back on to his two feet, giving him a friendly pat on the shoulder. At the very least he deserved some friendly treatment after what he had been through. "Take the path down this mountain and then head west into the forest. You'll find a campsite, and then there will be a stage in the center. Knock beneath it and say that Deniel and Raven sent you, and hopefully they'll let you in." Shivering once again all he could do was nod, before Deniel let go of him, and he took off like a rocket. Either he was faking it the whole time, or fear was driving him to get out of the vicinity of the mountain as fast as possible. Regardless he left Raven and Deniel alone once more, and the Eclipse Soul Guild Master stared at her for a moment. "Well...there's that. Now hopefully the rest of the scientists and diggers survived...some at least."

    Raven said nothing more as the man went away. There really was nothing more to say. Now that they knew what they were up against, it was best to decide how they could win this fight while keeping everyone safe. The worker said it himself that there are more survivors, after all. “We will find the rest,” Raven watched the tall guy stumble down the slope. Hopefully, he will make it to the camp before passing out.

    As she got up, Raven sighed, finally feeling the weight of things settle on her. This was not how she had planned that day to end at all. “I’m sure there will be survivors, Deniel. The difficult part would be finding them before the insects. Honestly, what are insects doing in a mountain?” she muttered angrily under her breath while turning to walk again. This time, it was obvious that she was stomping on the ground rather than just walking. Usually, the Sabertooth GM would be floating like a graceful swan but now, she had gotten used to Deniel’s presence and her real personality was peeking out the horizon.

    She suddenly purged all thoughts from her head and focused on the road ahead. As the haunting silence hung in the air, Raven was staring at the deep shadows that winded and twisted as it laid a path for them to climb. It all molded together in her lazy vision, reminding Raven how much she craved for a bit of sleep. She had stayed up without a wink for two nights now. The night before reaching the camp was when she was going through mountains of paperwork, finishing everything just so that she would be able to enjoy this training camp in peace. Now the moon was directly above them and she was still not getting any sleep. Of course, it didn’t affect her much but the wish for a warm bed lingered.

    “I wonder what made those insects lay dormant for so long. Were they some kind of monsters that attacked at some point in the past but didn’t succeed?” she voiced her thoughts and kept dragging herself forward with a light bounce to her steps whenever she encountered small objects like twigs and stones in their path. They soon reached the mouth of a cave. She couldn’t see clearly since darkness clung to the cave like a mistress. But she could, however, tell that it was quite deep and possibly extended farther into the mountain. It seemed to be a shorter way up the mountain? Maybe the professors and diggers used this path?

    Raven wondered too for a moment if it would be possible to use that long and narrow looking path. But what if the insects occupied parts of this path? What if they encountered something they weren’t ready to encounter just yet? No, they should take the path. It would be faster than walking the entire winding path up to the peak. She sent in a raven first to test the waters. Feeling no sense of danger coming from her link with the crow, Raven too walked inside.


    OOC: Not my best post xD and as for the caves, imagine pokemon games xD and no we aren't encountering monsters yet. o-o

    Raven's question was something that was also occupying Deniel's mind. What were these insects--although he had still hoped they were not so--doing all the way out here and inside of a mountain nonetheless? "I wonder that, too..." he stated shortly after as he followed her. His voice was now much more cold and serious before, but that was because of the fear that lingered inside of him. The fact that they were insects was still on his mind, and it gave him no reason to act like the child that he most often was. He stared down at the ground for the most part, with his eyes looking as if he were in a state of deep thought and consideration, but a positive one. Fear had taken a grip on him. And this fear distracted him from all over things, including the path that they trod. He took no heed to the darkness or the silence, in fact all they did was sink him deeper into his fearful thoughts. One thing that had occurred more often with these insects was his fear of their appearance, probably the most frightening thing Deniel found about such creatures. And the fact that the professor and the digger referred to them as "monsters" did not help.

    Despite his lack of concentration, he did notice when the Sabertooth Guild Master came to a halt, and so did he. He glanced up at what had stopped her, and the mouth of a caved closed off in darkness was right before him. Of course he had no fear of such things....but Raven's sudden cease of movements caused him to question whether or not she was. He was about to simply walk ahead of Raven and lead the way, but instead she--ironically--sent a raven inside to scout it out. "You really do live up to your name..." he stated, rather bluntly, but he followed it up with a joke as he tailed behind her inside. "What are you gonna' do? Turn into a giant raven and start pecking and eating these insects? Hahah..." He quickly made his way ahead of Raven, and for a good reason that he was about to showcase why. His eyes had a very unique, controllable, but also non-magical ability. The dark path ahead of him and Raven was soon lit up with a mysterious red glow, with objects becoming visible in the dark red light. The source of the light was none other than Deniel's irises. The darker the atmosphere and environment surrounding him is, the brighter his eyes may glow, to the point where they could be used as guiding lights such as now. Of course he had the ability to simply not use it, as he had done thus far, but now he deemed it necessary.

    The dark red lights pointed themselves to the surroundings of the cave, picking out inanimate objects such as rocks, on the ceiling and on the floor, oddly shaped figures that were simply shadows, and...more rocks. "This is a natural cave," he stated, coldly and quietly, but still enough for it to echo, "This probably leads deeper into the mountain, and further up. Perhaps we'll reach the dig site when we come across the other side." He had no idea if how long he and Raven had walked, but luckily for them it was a straight line for the most part. And when the light of the moon could be seen on the other site...they reached the dig site. Or what had remained of it.

    The cave that Deniel and Raven had ascended through was on higher ground than the dig site. As if in the center of the mountain, or perhaps a depression in it, the dig site was on a lower elevation than when they had entered, with a natural path leading down into the very small valley. And in this valley was blood and corpses. Blood stained the stones, tools, and devices that the professors and diggers alike used, as well as their corpses. Some of then had been torn in half, ripped to shreds, and bashed in. It was quite a brutal scene, but nothing to faze Deniel. He wasn't so sure about Raven, however. On the far side of the depression, there was a man-made cave with plenty of corpses and claw marks made out of it, as well as heavy footprints, and much more blood than any other area. That was the cave that they had dug through to awaken the insects...but where were they? The answer came very shortly to him as he looked to the left. Far away from the unnatural cave was a large building, heavily fortified and structured, with scratch marks, dents, and saliva spilled on all of it. Despite all of that, it still held itself up.

    As Deniel and Raven entered the depression, something noticed them. Something that was lurking in the darkness of the cave, far away from them. It was gnawing on a corpse, and when it saw the two of them enter, it silently scurried right back into the cave.

    No longer requiring the glow, Deniel dimmed his own lights down, and scanned the area once last time. "Vicious little things, I must say..."

    “Oh I’m sure you would want me to just turn into a giant bird and make everything easy for you,” Raven scoffed at his idea when he suggested the idea and then continued to walk deeper into the cave.  Surprisingly, they ended just above the crime sight. Down below was a lake of red. Numerous lives lost its meaning there and the fact that mountain was still holding it up was a big mystery. Despite the countless number of bodies scattered around the big pool, there was not even a trace of those insects that lead to this carnage. Instead, the valley was more or less empty save for the small creatures feasting on dead bodies. How disgusting but unfortunate at the same time.

    But then there was something entirely different for Raven to wonder about. In the middle of all that, still standing strongly was a building? It was small and it didn’t look like it could stay fortified for too long. However, it actually stood sturdy as if the Goddess of defense has blessed it with all her might. “This wasn’t what I was expecting,” Raven spoke, her voice barely above a whisper as she advanced towards the unnatural building. It was made of earth…in fact, someone had bended the floor of the depression to mould it into something temporary.

    Were they really able to somehow defend themselves like this? That was unbelievable. After all, they were only a bunch of scientists and diggers, right? It looked like a mage had assisted them though because she had no other way to describe or explain the miraculous possibility. But still, what drove the insects away so easily while there was food source just near to them? And if they did leave, just to where did they go? How did that digger and Lawrence managed to come out of the cave with only scratches on them? Luck? Was it just that? When she looked at the story as a whole, several things didn’t add up and several things were still left to be unveiled.

    No sooner did she stepped closer to the strange settlement, something zoomed past her eyes, almost touching her nose. Daggers; the blade of small daggers stuck in the rocks left to her glistened and Raven was left wondering what the hell happened to her. The darkness made it difficult for her to actually pin point the location of her attacker. On top of that, he emitted no magical aura but she could still tell the general direction it came from.

    “We are not insects,” she started, sighing as she heard footsteps coming closer to them. “We are as hum…never mind but we are not here to harm anyone,” she corrected herself. It would have been weird to tell them they were both humans when Raven certainly was not. She wasn’t sure about Deniel but oh well. “Can anyone come out and explain to us what is going on? If there is a mage among you, the better.”

    It wasn't what Deniel had expected either. Given the reaction of Lawrence and the digger, it was almost as if the scene had happened only moments ago. However, given the nature of the blood on the corpses, something like this had to have happened hours ago. Most of it had started to dry up, and decomposers had begun to take their place. Raven got ahead of him and had begun to head down towards the structure that lay within the dig site. Deniel noted several tools lying around, particularly near the corpses of diggers, which meant they were attacked while they were digging. That matched up to the story Lawrence and the digger had told them. Like Raven, however, he had on his mind the reason for the departure of the insects. Where exactly where they at this time? They couldn't have gotten out of the mountain, else Raven and Deniel would have seen them very easily, and why did the cease their attack? That structure didn't appear as if it were going to hold up for very long.

    Very soon with the trip Deniel and Raven had within the depression did a series of daggers almost impale themselves within the Guild Master's skull, narrowly passing by her nose. Deniel made no comment about it at first, but instead looked for the source. Raven asked for an explanation when the two of them figured out the source, but Deniel didn't really think they needed one. They were pretty much going to be told the same story--or so he thought--about how they were digging, they stumbled on pods, blah blah blah blah. The person who concealed themselves from sight away from Deniel and Raven still remained in the shadows, perhaps not trusting the two of them yet. "We were--" Deniel frankly had enough of the story, and he didn't know why Raven needed more of it. He shoved past her and swiftly approached the figure, interrupting him: "Yeah, yeah, we've heard that one before. You know where the Hell those insects are? And where are the scientists? And who the Hell are you throwing knives at us? Does she look like a giant bug to you!?"

    A brief moment of silence passed, and for a second Deniel thought that he screwed up. Regardless he didn't have any regrets, all he got so far was vague and uninteresting stories, one of them told twice in a row. And perhaps if he got specific with the questions he could get answers. "Shortly after we hit the first pod and investigated, that's when we discovered the chasm filled with thousands of them. Unfortunately for us...finding them had awakened them. I am the vacant protector of this dig site but....I can't handle all of those things by myself. The rest of the team is inside of that structure, and while most of them are too scared to get out, two of them managed to escape. I'm assuming you ran into them."

    That was one part of the mystery solved, how Lawrence and the digger got away and why. Deniel nodded in response, and the mysterious figure went on to piece together the rest of it. "The monsters have retreated for now, but they will certainly be back. I think they have some sort of queen, or hive lord, and they are merely being given orders and directions as to what to do. They only killed us because we disturbed them. However...they probably have some grand scheme. They'll be back. Soon enough."
    Notes: Sorry this one is kind of short...

    "Yeah, yeah, we've heard that one before. You know where the Hell those insects are? And where are the scientists? And who the Hell are you throwing knives at us? Does she look like a giant bug to you!?"

    Oh the joke was in there somewhere, wasn’t it? Raven just stared at Deniel as if he *should* drop dead right in front of her. Then she just huffed and turned her attention to the one explaining. Well, they got more information with this one and the structure holding them up wasn’t so bad. However, she doubted it could take more hits. It was probably at its limit like the protector and other people. She could see it in their eyes. More importantly, if they knew that the insects would be back, why were they still staying there? They should have taken some emergency measures and tried to get out of there like the digger and professor.

    ‘You doof! Not everyone is as strong as you or your companion! They probably didn’t think it was safe outside,’ a distant voice reasoned, playing some sort of sad music as it did so. “Annnnd you think staying here is safe?” she stretched the and in her head and scoffed. What kind of logic was that?

    Well, for now, Raven was out of ideas too. So she politely asked one of the workers to let them in and they moved almost instantly, seeing hope with two more mages to help them. The first thing Raven did after entering the unnatural building was to take a seat at the far end out of people’s curious eyes. The light of hope and dimness of doubt in their eyes was killing the peace loving raven. She believed Deniel to be following her and as the person responsible for the structure came to her, she motioned for him to sit.

    “Alright! We don’t have much time since we all know those insects will definitely be back,” she started, pausing a little to catch all the thoughts in her head. “We need some sort of strategy and we need to get all these people who can’t defend out of here. The mountain will not stand any of our magic attacks either,” she looked at Deniel as she mentioned magic and continued, “So to fight, an open sky is the best thing. We need to lure them out, somehow while making way for all of you to escape. There is a camp just below the mountain and I’m sure you will get help and shelter there. But the tricky part persists.” She sighed; frustrated that she was drawing a blank with the whole thing. She just couldn’t figure out how to get it all done. The risks were too high. “How do we get them there safely? What if those insects came back in the middle of moving?” she questioned again and again but couldn’t find an answer. What were the odds of them just flying out of nowhere and killing people again?

    OOC: I may have left few questions unanswered here xD lol

    Raven questioned why they had all bothered to stay here, and Deniel had done the same in his own mind. He glanced both of his eyes at her for a moment before looking back at the protector of these said scientists and diggers. Perhaps the reason they were staying is because they were too afraid to move...they were trapped. If they had stayed inside of the building, it could surely fall in another attack. And if they attempted to escape and they returned...they had no where to run to. Deniel closed his eyes and smirked, thinking to himself about how fortunate these men inside must be. If fate did exist, it surely was kind to them. Perhaps not to those already dead, but were it not for the two showing up at this particular moment, then the rest surely would be. This twist of irony had amused him so much that he practically forgot for a moment that he was dealing with bugs...the one creature that he feared the most. And an entire swarm of giant ones, nonetheless.

    He silently followed Raven inside of the unstable building and took a look around him. All around him, men were cowering and quivering in fear of what had just happened to them perhaps hours ago, and what could happen to them. Most had not noticed the presence of Deniel and Raven, so despair was still deep within their hearts. Ignoring them for the time being, he seated himself beside the fellow Guild Master, and listened to her intently. She suggested that Deniel and herself should use aerial combat, which was something he could agree on. The last thing he wanted to do was destroy the mountain, and he showed his ability to cut through solid stone with his sword, and he hadn't even used all of his strength. And perhaps it was the best idea for the rest of the team to move out, but there was the fact that they could be attacked at any moment. How were Deniel and Raven supposed to protect every last one of them? He had no doubt in his mind that the two could take on a swarm of bugs, regardless of their size, however protecting people at the same time would severely increase the difficulty. There would surely be casualties if they were assaulted.

    "Well, one more thing..." Deniel folded his hands and glanced towards the person who had given them the information thus far, "Not all of them are capable of flight. So you will have to fight in the mountains sometime. I've seen it myself, and some of them even have the ability to burrow underground and move."

    Great. Just great. That made things ten times more complicated for the two of them. Initially Deniel was going to suggest they get all of them up in the air somehow, and hopefully distract them...but that would work. That's when an idea occurred to Deniel....the hive lord. The person mentioned earlier that they had returned to a queen or a hive lord, and that meant the hive lord was crucial to them. If they were endangered..."I've got it!" Deniel abruptly stated after thinking about the situation for some time.

    "We'll go after the hive lord first, perhaps infiltrating their nest. If we manage to attack them, perhaps they will call the insects to their aid. And if they are too focused on Raven and I, then that will give you guys plenty of time to escape. And once they have, Raven..." He turned to Sabertooth's Guild Master, and cracked a smirk as well as his knuckles, "We'll be able to finish these things off once and for all. We just need to stall them long enough."

    Raven sighed when she heard the protector of the site give them more information about the bugs or insects or whatever in this case. Apparently, not all of them were able to fly. Again, she was surprised he managed to protect so many people from them. There must have been a great number of the insects. Someone within the group must have had amazing luck to be alive. Heck, all of them must have some great fortune favoring them in its own way. Anyhow, the biggest issue now was getting them out of the mountain and towards the camp where she can actually tell would be relatively safe.

    Numerous thoughts and ideas passed through the nineteen year old guild master’s mind but none of them gave a solid answer or key to her current predicament. She was at the verge of giving up when Deniel finally came up with a suggestion. She stared at the man for a long time, running each word individually in her head, making a picture, drawing out a diagram and a strategy as the words passed. She loved Deniel’s enthusiasm and believed his plans were better than anything she could have came up with as well. However, would taking on that number of creatures be easy? She knew there were a few spells that could help her but none of them were usable inside a mountain. And something told her that by the time they were done, the island would not be the same again.

    But she gave her consent since a plan was better than having none. “Alright, we will start for the insects’ nest soon. Hey,” she called the man, probably the only man who knew a bit of magic and continued. “Tell the men to get ready for heading out. We will go through the tunnel outside and see where the insects went. While we go inside, all of you will have to be fast. When you reach the camp, you will find a demon with raven wings going by the name, Kuroe. He is my friend and just tell him the details. You people should be safe there. We will meet you all again later,” she sighed at the end and got up. Was it just her or did she sigh a lot these days?

    She turned her attention to Deniel this time and returned his smirk. “Let’s go beat some insects up. How hard can it be? Insects are insects. They should be more or less scared of fire,” she started as she went out again. She was hoping to rest more but they would have to get everything ready fast since the presence of the creatures were unpredictable. “We will move out once all of you are ready. Some of the men would be scared but tell them to be calm about the situation. We promise that no harm will come to any of you,” she told the protector again and returned the smile he gave her. Well, since that was out of the way, now they just had to meet the lord/queen of this castle.

    "Damn bugs."
    "Let's go as soon as possible. I'd rather we get this done before they decide to return. Who knows how much time we have..." Deniel stood up straight and tall, attempting to put on a face that spoke of heroism and fearlessness, while the inside of him was trembling with fear. He had just volunteered himself to walk right into their nest and hive...of creatures he would no doubt be fearful of beyond belief. He was sacrificing his pride more than anything, but the lives of these men were far more important. He opened the door to the structure, letting their mage lead them out and away. They all moved very swiftly, and kept low to the ground while also looking around in not just alarm, but also disgust and remorse at their fallen comrades. Some of these men were friends to those who had died...and it pained them to see their corpses beneath their feet as they walked out alive. Still consumed with fear they all made their way to the exit that Deniel and Raven had entered, and as they did so, once all of them had exited the building, Deniel stared at the entrance to the cave. The man-made entrance which corpses surrounding that area more than any other.

    Suddenly he felt his fear escape him for rage, controllable, but rage nonetheless. He remembered once when he disregarded human lives as if they were nothing, but he had changed. Perhaps less than a year ago...but the change had occurred. And now, he stared right into what seemed like the jaws of a beast, that contained a brooding evil and dangerous force. The stench of the blood for the corpses of the scientists filled the air more than anywhere else in the depression. Quite silently, and at a steady pace, he made his way towards the cave. One fist was clenched tightly around the scabbard to Nidhogg once more. The fear entered him once more, with butterflies in his stomach, but he could also feel his fake pulse of blood rushing into his head and arms, echoing in his head with every beat. He didn't know what he would do once he and Raven met face to face with these monsters, but his hopes were placed on Raven having a plan of some sorts. The last thing he wanted to do was look into the eyes of these beasts, see their disgusting insect-like bodies, and their wings...their hideous wings. Possibly the part of bugs he had feared the most. The rattling sound that they made, their capabilities of flying into his face and on his smooth pale skin so suddenly. It made Deniel cower in fear, perhaps in a more humorous way than what most would expect "fear" to be, but fear nonetheless.

    As he and Raven entered the cave, past the corpses, they would see that it was quite enlarged by unnatural means. Not necessarily from the digger's tools, but rather the insects. Deniel guessed what had happened was only a few insects actually got out of the cave, and most merely stopped just before they had exited to retreat back into the hive. So, abruptly, the size of the tunnel went from being able to hold three people or perhaps more in width, to an entire row of twenty people or so. Claw marks and rugged walls surrounded the two of them. Just as Deniel did with the cave earlier, he used his glowing eyes to guide Raven and himself through. Even though they were no longer at the entrance, and getting quite deep into the cave, several corpses still stained the walls and floor. Echoing down the cave, Deniel heard the cry of one of the insects. A very high-pitched, inhuman and bile filled grunting noise that made Deniel's spine shiver, but still made him attempt to keep his strong image. Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid!

    Raven stood next to Deniel, watching the men being lead by their mage. None of them were making a big fuss about the situation though Raven could see it in their eyes that they were far from alright. Seeing men, their friends and comrades no less, fall to death in front of them had definitely given them enough to have nightmares about for their lifetime. The mage in particular, even if he was keeping up a brave façade, was surely regretting the fact that he wasn’t able to save all of his companions. Surely, it will haunt him in his sleep, would it not? No, there is no questioning it since she knew it herself…regret.

    Raven had to force herself away from venturing down the grim path of her thoughts again. She had lived thinking about her past for as long as she could remember. Even she knew it was time to move on; even she knew that the sands of time will not flow back for her; even she knew that her life would never take another path. Then why did she dwell on it was far from her comprehension. Maybe she should practice some sort of meditation to completely forget or at least push everything to the very back of her mind. Ah, she was losing herself again.

    Darkness welcomed Raven and Deniel as they stood at the entrance. It hid everything but beckoned the two mages to come closer. The inside, however, surprised Raven a little. The walls were far apart from each other than what Raven expected it to be. The only explanation she derived from it was that whatever those insects were, they were huge. Huge enough to burrow a tunnel inside the mountain. Cold wind wafted up the cake, embraced Deniel and Raven with cold hands, disappeared for a few minutes and came back again. Combined with the silence of the cave, Raven felt uneasiness coil around her like a snake. It threw her thoughts around and finally she forced herself to shut down any sort of negative thoughts. Instead, her ears started to pick up the sounds around them; the sound of wind, the sound of bells hanging off her hair pin and the sound of footsteps, both hers and Deniel’s, its echo and then…then a shrill sound of something screeching entered her ears and made her groan in annoyance. She couldn’t even have a moment’s peace with those things screeching. Deniel and Raven must have gotten quite near to them if they were able to pick up sounds like that. It made her gut curl, not with fear, but with disgust. She wasn’t a big fan of insects or bugs –probably a trait she picked up by being a raven- and the thought of having to stand before the huge ones made her remember another mission she had undertaken along with Hikari. At least this time they weren’t ant sized.

    “Deniel, do you think we are close to their hive? How are we even going to pull them out to the open?”

    "Damn bugs."
    A very deep gulp of saliva went down Deniel's throat once the scream had ended, and once more he could hear the blood pounding through his body once more. "Very close, I'd suspect..." Deniel muttered, almost underneath his breath. Fear had tightened its grip around him further and further. He even froze for a moment just to gather himself together before continuing. Above all else, he still wanted to at least try and appear to be fearless so that maybe he could fake it until he and Raven had to do...something! It was a dumb plan by him, and he brought himself in his mess. He was quickly regretting his decision, and perhaps thought it would have been better for him to simply tell Raven of his fear of insects. However, it was far too late for him to tell Raven anything, for they had reached the hive.

    There was a much larger entrance torn right open by claw marks that lead straight into it, and upon entering, Deniel and Raven would see the ceilings and walls swarmed with them. The most common were giant larvae, each appearing to be as large as a grown man, with a worm-like shape and several very tiny limbs to carry their bodies. They squealed and made high-pitched noises, and were in almost countless numbers. Immediately after seeing them Deniel froze in his tracks, completely silent, but that was not the end of it. The so-called "carriers" were also crawling around in small ditches and fissures all along the floor of the cave that contained the hive, carrying larvae with them perhaps to separate locations. There were also a large number of pods on the ground, split wide open for the insects to escape. Right in the center of the cavern, were four very large insects with scythe-like limbs, and one of them let out a screech to the other insects, the exact same one that Deniel and Raven had heard earlier. So they found out the source of it, and it didn't seem like any of the insects took notice to the two new people that had entered.

    But all of that was about to change.

    Unable to hold in his disgust and fear of such monstrous creatures, too similar to the tiny creatures he had disgusted, Deniel's eyes twitched momentarily. He tried as hard as he could to hold it in, but could not. Out of no where he opened his mouth while dropping to his knees and grabbing on to his hair, and let out a scream of absolute terror. A simply way to put it was high-pitched, "screaming like a little girl", and as he did all of the activities in the Hive ceased. Deniel's voice echoed through the hive, which was given light by small cracks in the ceiling so Raven and him could see what would be happening. The larvae still moved, but made no sounds, the carriers beneath them ceased their actions, and each of the four hive lords stared straight into the direction of Deniel and Raven, as his screams didn't stop. "NOOO! GO AWAY! GO AWAY! THEY'RE HIDEOUS! AHHH--"

    The Hive’s entrance was larger than the one they used to enter the tunnel. It was bordered with claw marks and jaded edges and there were even traces of dried blood around the walls indicating that they had brought a few people back as meals. In whole, laid bare before Raven’s and Deniel’s eyes was a gruesome and repulsive sight mixed with red and brown. The darkness had lost its existence as light from the varied cracks on the wall vanquished it. Raven wasn’t sure at which part of the mountain they were in anymore.

    Swiftly yet silently, Raven moved behind a huge boulder, peeking just a little above it to monitor the creatures’ movements. The hive was filled with them yet she knew that those weren’t their full number. Hatchlings crawled around the ceiling and walls while what could be called as carriers took over the floor. Overseeing them were tanks and four giant hive lords with sharp scythe-like limbs coated with blood. It was easy for anyone not blind to see that they were strong. They ran the hive, they brooded over the workers and they were lost deep in their plans. It was far too obvious that they were the real fight.

    Raven made no sound nor did she even move while observing their movements. What were they doing? It looked as if they were engaged in some urgent work that Raven didn’t understand at all. They moved in a pattern and none of them seemed actually intelligent but she could be wrong about that one. However, they did look highly sensitive to their surroundings. What was this foreboding feeling in her now? How were they going to wipe out such a huge number? She was trying to draw out an answer to all of these questions when she noticed that Deniel wasn’t with her anymore.

    Confused, she looked around herself and found Deniel exactly where she had left him. He just stood there with an awkward silence, his eyes reflecting with disgust the insects prowling around. “Uhm Deniel?” she called and even made a psst sound to get his attention. Though none of them worked and just before Raven could bounce back to him and snap him out of whatever world he was currently prisoner to, she froze at the sound of him screaming –like a little girl.

    To say Raven was surprised would have been a grave understatement for she just stood behind the rock, staring wide-eyed at the man who looked as brave as a chief when they initially entered the cave but now was crying like a girl at the creepy crawly things that took the majority of the space. It didn’t look like he was going to stop anytime soon either and it didn’t take too long for the insects to notice the intruder. A loud screech like command at the carriers made by the hive lords and they were rushing towards Deniel while still not noticing Raven behind the rock.

    Honestly, Deniel had not struck to her as the type of person to be scared off by bugs or insects. As funny as that sounded in her head, she was intercepting the carriers the next second by placing herself between them and Deniel. “Snap out of it, Deniel. You don’t want them making a meal out of you, do you?”

    The only sounds that filled up the cavern were the high pitched screams of Deniel, and the movements of the larvae all around it, but no other sounds came from them. Deniel couldn't even hear Raven over the sound of his own scream, and even after he had finished it, he still remained on his knees with very heavy breaths escaping his lips. Drops of sweat came down his forehead, and he could feel his pulse racing. Despite the fact that he extinguished some of his fear through the scream, plenty of it still remained, and worse yet the Hive Lords were looking straight into their direction. In just one move Deniel managed to mess up the entire plan he and Raven had, as well as them attempting to sneak in. Just one hiss from the Hive Lords, and the entire hive could be coming after to devour the two. They appeared to be helpless, especially for Deniel at the moment, as he lay there in silence with his head bowed down and fear lingering inside of him. For the first time in almost his whole life: he didn't know what to do. There was no way he could face those insects without fear getting in the way of him. He remembered when he once did a job where there were giant insects, but their appearances were not as monstrous as these ones. Staying silent for several moments, each Hive Lord then turned to several large Tank insects and gave them a brief hiss.

    These large, and very bulky bugs rattled their enormous wings in response, and then began to head straight for Deniel and Raven. Deniel could not even notice, for he was too busy staring at his own legs, hunched together on their knees like a weakling. At first he felt as if he could not do anything, until a very familiar voice echoed in his head, "Get up, cry-baby!" Or rather he thought it was in his head, but it was said aloud so even Raven could hear, but it seemed to have no source. Whatever it was, it triggered Deniel. The word "cry-baby", and the voice were all too familiar for him, and it was as if this person was someone who Deniel dearly hated. For in this small bit of hatred he held for them, there was a sudden explosion of extremely powerful Magic Power. For the first time since seeing Raven, he let all of it loose rather than hiding it, and it was devastating. Either she would have to shield herself with her own, or hide from it. From his body suddenly burst an enormous quantity of a red aura energy, as red as his own two eyes, which he referred to as "Unholy Energy". And there was no mistake that it was. With such a large amount, behind him the cave was flooded with it until it burst out of the mountain like a brief volcanic eruption, and inside of the cavern, the part of the ceiling Deniel and Raven were under had its larvae incinerated by the sheer force of it all. And in front of them it was enough to bring the tanks to a halt, not wanting to risk being caught in it all.

    All of this terror lasted for only a few seconds, before all of this Magic Power vanished just as quickly as it had appeared. Standing in place of Deniel was a very fearsome creature that could strike terror into any weak willed person's heart. It was covered in black layered scales, two inches taller than Deniel from the boots that it wore, and its eyes were pure red. Claws clenched themselves into fists, along with a horned crowned atop his helmet with a red jewel in the center. The boots that Deniel wore now went all the way up to his knees, with yellow spikes coming off of small pieces of armor at the knee area. On his right shoulder was small, but effective pieces of shoulder armor. Strangely enough, the wings on his back were almost exactly like a bug's. Two pieces of black caprice scales, one on each shoulder, came off of his back to partially covered up four total insect-like wings. These wings rattled for a moment, before the monster carried its pure red eyes over to the hive lords, before calmly walking over to them. It could also be noted that the katana Deniel carried was no longer a katana. A large, monstrous broadsword lay sheathed on his back.

    As he walked to the Hive Lords, the tanks simply let him pass by, parting themselves away to give him room. Whether it was out of fear or sudden respect would be unknown. As Deniel approached the Hive Lords, the one in the very front gave the same hiss that it did when Deniel and Raven had entered, but altered it slightly. No longer feeling intimidated, Deniel took in a brief bit of breath, before letting out a roar in response. The roar was monstrous, and unlike any other, and it echoed through the cavern even as he finished it. The Hive Lord hissed right back at him, a longer one this time, only to have Deniel respond with a louder and much more savage roar. Leaping away from its platform in the center of the room, and towering right above Deniel at an enormous height, the Hive Lord kept on hissing, only to have it returned by the roars of Deniel. The Hive Lord lowered itself to where its head was almost at the same height as Deniel's, giving one more brief hiss. Deniel snarled, and made a biting motion almost like a dog who had been threatened. And surprisingly enough, it spoke: "Trespassing you are!" The voice of the Hive Lord was very raspy and saliva filled, not really much to of a surprise. But Deniel's? It was much deeper, and perhaps calmer, but gave the thread of exploding in a rage once more. "My apologies." The Hive Lord hissed once more, but the stern Deniel did not even so much as flinch. "No mood for humor I am! Come have you why?" The Hive Lord's sentences appeared to be reversed, but Deniel could still understand them, "I was curious. What exactly are you? What are you planning? And why did you kill all of those men?"

    "Gaaah! Plans concern you not. 'The Hive' we were called by humans a time ago. Trespassing men did, killed them did we." Suddenly grabbing on to the greasy face of the Hive Lord, Deniel pulled it in close for it to stare at his rage filled eyes. It hissed for a moment, and the tanks appeared as though they would attack him at any second. "You slaughtered innocents. You shall pay for that!" Almost as if trying to imitate laughter, the Hive Lord let out a brief burst of saliva filled breaths. "Innocent they are not. Human you are not. Care so much why? Join the Hive you should do." Suddenly raising his clawed hand, Deniel brought it right down on to the face of the Hive Lord, cutting straight into its eye and leaving a gash on its skin, "I will do no such thing! You and your Hive will all be slaughtered today!" Scratching it once more, Deniel left to grave wounds right on to its face before he broke out into a sprint back at the entrance, "Come on, Raven! I think we could draw them out again!" Behind Deniel and Raven the Hive Lord he had hurt was making some pain induced hissing noises from the wounds Deniel had given him, with one of its eyes now completely lost. "Get them! Slaughter them! Devour them we shall!"
