    Just as the group of mages entered the hall, Ardere felt a tingle go up his spine. A fissure of pressure and heat would form, prompting both he and the three musketeers to leap backwards several meters instinctively. The most proper way to describe what was occurring before the fire mage, was a portal to Hell opening up, like something he had read in a book. Admittedly, a sense of fear and adrenaline pulsed through his veins quicker than he has experienced before. He was not sure what the cause of this was, nor were the musketeers, and now their actions were purely instinctual. Rather than standing in the hall, as whatever fissure had erupted, they back a bit before the opening to the hall. Something appeared then before them, some sort of figure he imagined to be a beast or demon of sorts. Unfortunately he did not have ample time to analyze the situation, rather all four of the mages reacted on instinct. The three women had their guns at the ready, and each fired a piercing shot as the group jumped back a few more meters. It would be noticeable that these guns were not ordinary muskets, they were adept in gun magic. If the god slayer had to judge their rank in terms of how things were in Fiore, they would each be A ranked mages, the lead blonde one perhaps even an S rank. Regardless, the shots would probably be powerful enough to piss this monster off.

    Acting along with the three mages, Ardere would also perform an attack, which would follow their blasts. While the three women were firing their blasts, and the group instinctively leaped backwards at more of an angle to avoid the beast, he would thrust his blade forward. Normally due to his jump backwards, his blade would not have reached the beast, but flames had formed around the blade. His Sword of Kings was now summoned and touching the beast easily. Large flames forming another blade over his own, one that reached even a length of ten meters. This was the blade he used to hunt beasts like this, though he never expected using it in such an enclosed space. Possessing several spells that could cause the beast to fall through the floor or cave in the house, he could not use them for fear of endangering the musketeers or the hostages in some way. He was certainly in what would be commonly referred to as a pickle. Whatever this thing was, he noticed blades of sorted pierce through the floors as it appeared.

    As the demon surged forward into a hail of gunfire that echoed sharply throughout the hallway with loud bursts,  the projectiles chinked off of chitinous plating or cracked right through plating or into more exposed parts of its body with splashes of glowing red-orange blood as though molten,  melting through the wooden floor and walls as it splattered with sickening crunches and wet spurts.   The demon wailed in pain sounding like something out of a nightmare,  making skin crawl and blood curdle. 


    As Ardere formed the long blade of fire the demon jerked suddenly to the side and stormed through the wall itself as easily as though it were paper causing a shower of wooden splinters and dust.   It's dozens of legs sounding through the hallways as it skittered somewhere nearby behind the walls and another crushing burst sounded, heavier than the first and the skittering stopped.    Seconds later it would burst through the ceiling down on the Musketeers with a shower of wood and stone in an attempt to ravage them with it's blade-like limbs.   


    Obscured by the charge of the first, a second demonic centipede slipped out from the hellgate to go down the other hallway from where the two halls met in an L and shot off away from the scene before the hellgate shimmered and the fissure slammed shut.  With the first demon breaking through from above the second burst from a nearby wall in a shower of broken wood an instant later appearing to surge forward out from a large gilded frame that once held a fine painting.  It seemed to wait long enough for the fire mage to react to the first demon,  ready to pounce as soon as his back might turn. 




    (A second appears!)

    It seemed that the musketeers bullets had dealt some damage to the beast, but before he could strike at it with his blade, the beast moved away from Ardere. Duck! Shouting to his comrades the fire mage spun his blade around above his head, melting through all of the walls in an attempt to hit the beast before it's next attack. Not only did he spin the blade with his increased speed, but due to the flames not adding any weight to his swings, a circular wall of flames formed above his head, almost like a fan blade spinning. Breaking the foundations of the room and the roof, he heard two cracking sounds; one being him destroying the roof, the other being what he imagined was the beast moving to the roof, prompting him to roll into the next room as this one collapsed. Scorching bits of wood and earth falling onto the floor, he imagined it had become extremely unstable. His blade right behind him as he rolled, it easily hit the beast that crashed through. The three women crouched, each firing shots at the massive hell beast.

    Spinning around to face the large hell beast, his blade went right over the musketeer's heads and through the walls of the hall and the next room over. His constant movement, would be dragging around the ten meter long blade with him as well. Which seemed to be just in good timing to attempt to hit another beast that emerged from the depths of Hell, unsure if that was a literal or metaphorical observation at this point. Yare yare daze... Speaking in his native Midian tongue, which meant "Gimme a break". The combination of the beast, and the fire mage had dealt some serious damage to this level of the house, perhaps setting a blaze that he would have to take care of soon. Luckily he could indeed eat the flames of his blade, if need be.

    The wooden ceiling of the mansion gave way as Ardere's sword cleaved through it,  notably slowed by the thick stone outer shell of the mansion as it melted through it causing globules of molten rock to drip down on the floor below.   The demon, however,  was further away out of harms way as it continued its path normally before breaking through the roof, stone shell and all to attack the musketeers in a frenzy of blade-limbs.   When it broke through it caused the slash he made in the roof to widen and grow to where it broke through at and cause the over the hallway to collapse.


    As it was waiting for Ardere to turn to face the distraction of the first demon attacking the Musketeers,  the second demon instead saw its chance to strike while he rolled with the fireshlong in tow.  Surging forward through whatever obstruction,  meeting the fireshlong headlong as he brought it up,  catching the blade in one of its shoulders but powering through with a blade of its own,  one of its front legs while the others swiped inward like a death-hug likely catching in an awkward spot.  


    Before mauling him too badly or sticking around to try much,  the demon would rush off over the man to burst through the ceiling itself disappearing to skitter elsewhere with a crunch in the distance as it reentered the mansion elsewhere.    The first demon did the same with the musketeers,  breaking through the wall of the hallway and through the room on the other side and out of sight to leave the four to recuperate from their combined efforts now somewhat separated. 


    Siren herself was safely hidden away as a black cloud difficult to see in the shadows,  a gash through the wall in front and behind of her in the not-so-secret passageway as she watched the whole thing.    They significantly damaged the first demon,  who she could feel was disgruntled and pissed at the damage he took,  begging her to let him eat them until she silenced him with a 'no'.

    Ardere tried to move out of the way, he even hit the second demon, but it was not enough. Several cuts lined his torso and sides, even a few moderate cuts on his legs. He was not near fatally injured, but he was hurt. It was strange, after being attacked he had expected death or at least a knock out, but nowhere fatal was hit. Blood dripping down his sides, he noticed he had dropped his blade. He could barely stand initially, but luckily he could rise a bit. He was conscious, definitely enough to notice the demons scatter back. Unfortunately he was a God slayer, not a Demon slayer. But he was alive, and there was a reason for that. If they came again, this entire estate was going down before he would allow those hostages to go unsaved. Restraining himself had been a poor miscalculation, but he still had his life for now.

    The musketeers had taken some damage as well, but more from the debris than the actual monsters themselves. Struggling to stand, the red headed musketeer helped him up a bit. I've got you. What the hell were those things? Gritting his teeth, Ardere shook his head. It doesn't matter, we have to get to the hostages. Who or whatever summoned that beast, was not someone to be trifled with. Demons didn't just appear in this world for no reason, at least he didn't think they did here in Minstrel.

    Looking down, his sword was still ablaze. Picking it up, he sucked in the flames that had set parts of the room on fire, having the entire place come down would not be a good idea. It was not a significant amount of fire, but he still couldn't be so sure. Rather than wasting time, he was going to make his way towards the bedroom where he assumed they were being held, but during the ruckus he had not noticed that was where they had landed. Moving back to the main room, he looked over to see a woman impaled by an earthen spike. Covering his mouth, he cringed a bit, the women as well. Dammit. Gritting his teeth, a bit of blood ran down his chin. As he turned his head, he saw a figure, like a man by the woman. Is tha- The blonde woman rushed over to the man, which he was under the assumption was the noble. There was something strange, almost as if he had turned to stone. It was a horridly gruesome sight, one he was bound to not forget for years to come. The woman seemed intensely pissed, pulling her sword towards the stone as if to cut it off. No! We'll take him back, perhaps he can be turned back. Sighing, he punched a small dent in the wall. This mission was not going very well so far, he was almost sick to his stomach right now, and was unsure if they could even save the noble. The fire mage felt anger spread throughout his body, and he was sure the women would feel the same. He did not know the man personally, but it hurt him that he had not made it in time. But this would not deter him from saving the other hostages, their lives were important too.

    Siren was amused well enough as the four picked themselves up and shuffled,  supporting each other and on their toes not about to be taken by surprise by the demons again with their weapons at the ready and the musketeers watching each other's backs near the fourth mage.   A Fire slayer.  A fire god slayer, she could plainly see as the magic surrounded him as he moved and emanated off his flames.  Unholy magic,  and fire to boot.  Not the best match up to combat her demons.  It would be no wonder his fire didn't stop the demon,  granted it was also above his pay grade.   Still,  a fire god.  She watched as he consumed the fires that he had started in his reckless use of that large blade of fire.   Well,  unholy or not he was with the Musketeers challenging her demons and lackies.  


    It was just getting to the good part though.  Siren savored the moment as the four stepped over debris and ruined walls into the master bedroom to see the display she had laid out for their eyes.  A gift for them,  the noble heroes.   The black cloud that was Siren rolled,  billowing in place within the wall almost a little giddy while observing their cringes and shocked expressions that quickly stooped to hatred and regret unaware that it wouldn't have mattered when they arrived or not.  Perhaps they would still blame themselves,  wishing to be faster or perhaps not.


    One of the three musketeers sunk down to her knees and dropped her sword in front of the two,  fingers clenching into fists and hitting the floor while she contained herself.   Of the three she seemed personally invested.  Siren peered into her heart to read her desires,   at the moment the wish to be better,  to be faster,  for them to be alive right now was at the forefront.  She could see a life in her heart that never was.  A bit of an affair it seems.  


    Black smoke flooded out from the wall and circled the room,  filling the room with an ashy smell as the smoke hung in the air in her path.   Opposite to the four behind the body of the wife the smoke formed a human shape that only got more solid,   revealing the black haired woman before the four from the waste up,  her lower body remaining intangible.   She was uncomfortably close to the body for most people,  her hands hugging it casually while she looked at them from over its shoulder,  golden eyes full of satisfaction while throughout the circle she took around the room cracks in the air tore open as demons of various size and shape stepped through each looking stern and obedient as they stood still after stepping through, waiting. 


    "Like my gift? I had thought you might enjoy it."  She laughed lightly while she stroked the cheek of the dead woman with the back of one hand.

    Still disgusting by the scene, Ardere knew they had to move on and get the other hostages, but something strange occurred before he could do so. Deactivating the massive flames around his blade, as to not set any more fires, he noticed some smoke entering the room. Clutching his blade tight, smoke filled the room, with a smell of ash. The women kept their swords drawn, and the other one slid back a bit from the man and his wife's corpse. A few tears were streaming down her face, but he could tell there was anger in there. Sadly, he was distracted by the strangeness of the smoke entering the room. Don't move. A woman, partially intangible it seemed, which made him assume she was the smoke he had seen before. He had never seen this woman, and by her looks he did not imagine she was from Minstrel. Something was going on here, and it was much bigger than he had previously been lead to believe. The women drew their flintlock pistols, as demons of many shapes and sizes appeared.

    As soon as the smoke woman made her remark, the woman in the front let out an angered reply. You bitch! She was about to point her pistol at the would be leader of these demons, Ardere wrapped an arm around her and whispered into her ear. Not yet. The woman could easily break free of his grasp, but she knew it was in her best interest to cooperate. All of them weapons at the ready, the fire mage seemed less angry than before. His eyes were full of fiery, not literally but he was motivated. His eyes narrowed onto the woman, his hand clutching the red and white blade known as Clarent. Standing tall, blood dripping down his sides still. Who are you and what do you want? A black aura began to shimmer around his body, from his god slayer magic. He was obviously outclassed here, but that did not stop him from gritting his teeth, full of conviction. There was no sense in dwelling on failing to save the noble, but he could still save the hostages if he could figure a way out of this.

    They were so on edge.   Despite their seriousness,  Siren's eyes remained light pleased,  a smile on her lips.  From her point of view things were going pretty well so far.  The two last pages aside,  nobody had died yet.  Nobody that mattered anyway,  noting the dead mages she had brought in with her.  There were dozens more where they came from, thousands even. Millions.  The only lives that really mattered to her were these four and the hostages.  She had about as much reason to keep them alive as those four themselves would really.   She didn't want to kill people. Not really.    As for the wife,  well.  It couldn't be helped.


    They weren't amused with her games however,  not that the'd really know she was toying with them up until now.   The crying one was full of so much hatred and loss,  Siren almost feared she'd do something stupid.  But the slayer held her back,  as well as the red headed musketeer as she held out her sword in front of both of them.   She looked more inquisitive,  watching Siren like a hawk,  which amused her.  The third put her back to the other three to keep a blade ready while watching the demons that had appeared to encircle the large master bedroom. 




    She floated away from the impaled body with a smooth grace,  getting close to them and making the muskeers level their rifles and pistols at her while she stroked the head of the stone-encased Townsend.  He was unconscious within it,  on the verge of death and only -just- able to breath his shallow breaths.   Even with her enhanced slayer senses,  she couldn't hear it herself, nor smell it.  But the stone itself surrounding him gave her a full picture of his body,  showing her the faint beating of his heart.   He very clearly looked petrified, as though turned to stone.  "Don't you touch him!" The really-angry-musketeer said,  jerking forward against Ardere and the Redhead's outstretched blade but held back,  eyes fuming while Siren grinned. 


    "What do I want?"  She tilted her head while her hand traced down Townsend's arm.  "I think it's more a question of what you want.  You see,  my pets...  They didn't just leave you alone you know.  Where do you think they went?"  She clasped her fingers around the outstretched hand of the noble lord before her eyes grew serious looking up to meet their eyes.


    "You have a choice right now.  You might try to get Townsend here to a disenchanter,  or you can save the other hostages.  I imagine they're making a rather tasty snack for thing one and thing two.  They're in the cellar."  She said with a laugh,  one of Townsend's stone fingers breaking off at her touch.  It was the finger that she had severed earlier in the interrogation efforts recreated when she "Petrified" him, but they didn't know that.  It made her grin wider and laugh.  "Oops" she said,  biting her lower lip and drifting back away a pace or two.

    Watching the woman move towards the stone Townsend's body, Ardere kept his eyes on her at all times. For those seconds, it's as if none of the demons in the room were there, just her. He was not sure who or what the hell she was, but she had a power to her he had not been in the presence of since when he was back in Peace Village. The difference between that situation and this was, was the intensely powerful being in front of him was not his ally. Both he and the Musketeers were on edge, as they were presented with an ultimatum. The fire mage thought the woman he was holding back was going to get them killed for a moment, but she knew what they had to do as well. You won't get away with this! As passionate of a statement as it was, it was futile. He knew the minute she answered his question what kind of person they were dealing with, and it was not one who would respond to threats. Gritting his teeth a bit more, he actually decided to give an answer. Then we'll go get the hostages. Now.

    Assuming the woman did not try to stop him, he would dash into the hall, knocking one of the demons aside if need be. Then hopped onto the banister, sliding down it until he reached the bottom level. The hostages were in the cellar, and probably in danger of being eaten by those bastards they injured earlier. Moving down to the bottom level as fast as he could, he waited for the musketeers. Which way is the cellar? Rather than answering, due to their strain on time, the leader ran off in a direction towards a door, and he would follow. Moving to the cellar, he was unsure of what would be down there, other than the hostages of course. He did not have much time to take in how bad of a condition the place was in, with ruined tables and paintings. His main focus was getting to the hostages.

    Siren's demons stepped aside at the door gaping hole in the wall allowing their passage as she gave them their decision,  clawed hands pointing the way as each one was larger than a full grown man with intimidating appearances ranging from scales and goats legs with large horns to hanging maws full of teeth.    As soon as they ran away,  the one musketeer taking her little threat with her,  Siren sighed  standing straighter and raising her arms to clasp behind her neck while she looked about the room for a pause.   


    "Carry on." She said dismissively,  and the demons turned to leave through the many gates in the room.   Dramatic effect aside,  these demons in particular were rather low class grunts.  Siren chuckled under her breath shortly while her eyes turned to the unfortunate couple but her mind was elsewhere,  following the traces of the four's magic to place their location in the mansion.  They should be entering the cellar now where many more of her mages would be guarding the hostages.   Perhaps hostages was never the right word though, considering she never actually had any intention of holding them for anything.  Simple captives was more like it.   The four were sure to note that there definitely was not two angry demons munching on any innocent heads down there,  but they'd be in for a fight anyway.   Then with a push lead by those two demons of hers... She'd try to flush them out through the cellar exit out into the estate grounds for even more waiting arms.




    So far so good.   Siren's thoughts turned to the two she was staring at while her body shimmered,  black hair becoming red and voluminous,  her figure getting taller and idealized as it was.  She brought her hand up,  making the hair flow and come to a rest while she reached through a small hellgate,  black leathers crawled up her body in the process while ripping the simple black dress away to form a tight form-fitting leather suit,   a metal arm band expanding and growing over the leathers to form an armored plating while a silver circlet matching the white furs around the armor crowned her head.  A black sash wrapped around her waist like a belt.   Reaching through the hellgate once more there was the sound of sliding metal as she appeared to unsheath a black sword from the gate before it closed,  flicking out to her side and giving it a twirl,  humming through the air before she held it in front of her face to examine the beautiful black and silver blade.

    Entering into the cellars, it was not as dark as he expected, in fact it was very nice. The cellar seemed to be as large as a floor on it's own, with several halls and rooms as far as he could tell. But which one were the hostages in? Listening for a moment, with his enhanced hearing he could hear some mild talking from one of the rooms. This way. As they got close to the room, he noticed large barrels outside of it, probably full of wine. This was a noble's eastate after all, he should expect no less. Looking at the entrance to the room, the door was closed. They were likely not expecting them, so they were in for a surprise. Kicking down the door, the four mages burst into the room. Able to knock out four of the men with their swords, mainly due to the element of surprise they had gained. It was evident that twelve men had been in the room, leaving eight more to deal with. They were lining the walls, surrounding the hostages. It was too dangerous to use magic in here, but luckily he was faster than all of the captors. The musketeer firing their pistols at several men, taking them out instantly, and slicing through any earth that came their way. Leaping upwards, the fire mage would kick one of the men into the other men, knocking them into the wall. Slicing through chunks of earth, the musketeers would deal with wind mages. After a scuffle, he would have a few scrapes from wind and earth, but he was not majorly injured in any way. Let's get these people out of here. Removing any restraints on the hostages, they seemed scared, which they had every right to be. Quickly moving the people out of the room, they would all exit. There's an exit to the courtyard though the coal and wood room. Nodding, the would move further into the cellar, but he then heard something.

    Looking back behind them, he could hear footsteps getting louder and louder. Whatever was coming their way, it was a force even larger than what they had encountered in that room. Get them out to the courtyard, go The women would take the hostages into the coal and wood room, then out towards the courtyard. Ardere would follow them, but first he had to make sure they were not followed so easily. Reaching a leg up as soon as he saw the first mage turn the corner, he kicked a black orb towards the roof about fifteen meters away. Running into the room, and out to the courtyard after he did that, a massive explosion would be heard. Flames scorched the walls, the explosion causing the roof to collapse in on the charging mages, blocking their path to follow the rescuers. He was unsure if anything waited for them in the courtyard, but if there was they would deal with it accordingly. They had come too far to be stopped now.

    (Roll is for the things chasing us)
    Spell:
    Name: Flame God's Impeding Scorch
    Rank: B
    Type: Fire/Offensive
    Duration: Instant
    Cooldown: 3 posts
    Description: The user performs a side kick, and fires an orb that is 3 m long and 1 meter thick at 50 m/s up to 30 m away. Whatever this orb comes into contact with, be it person or object, will initiate a 30 m explosion that travels at the same speed as the orb itself. Anyone hit by this will be knocked back 10 m, with second degree burns and 1 cm of flesh withered away. If the user's kick collides with a target, the orb that would normally form will overload due to not being able to fire, and explode immediately. This makes it usable at all ranges, but the explosive force makes it dangerous in enclosed spaces and to allies.
    Strengths:

    Can be used at all ranges.
    Knockback of 10 m
    Can take out multiple targets.


    Weaknesses:

    Can easily harm allies.
    Contact must be made with the kick or orb.
    Attack can be easily predicted as a kick initiates it.
    Dangerous in closed spaces.

    Siren waited for the "Escapees" to emerge from the heavy double-doors leading up out of the cellar and into the wide courtyard of the estate.   They perhaps wouldn't have noticed the fact that the doors did in fact open and were not blocked by the stone shell that encased the manor.  It was possible they didn't think anything of it,  the cellar doors were at a slant opening almost upwards and jut out from the building a short ways.    Whether or not they did think anything of it however,  was irrelevant.   As the people flooded out from the cellar doors there was a rumble and commotion as one of the blade-armed demons tore through the rubble and debris the fire slayer's explosion had created,  successfully delaying them in time for everyone to escape into the courtyard at least.   


    As the demon and group of mages closed in from within the cellar,  many, many, many more mages surrounded the group of hostages and their four rescuers.  A clone of Siren,  black haired and smiling,  was there in the midsts of them.  The horde of enemies surrounding them,  mages and demons alike,  stood still as the black haired woman clapped smugly.  


    "You've escaped!  Congratulations.  There is just... one little problem.  I don't see my one million jewels."  She looked offended,  a hand touching her chest while she looked to one of the mages nearby.   "Do you?" She asked in a mocking tone of voice.  He nervously shook his head.  "N-no mam."  He stammered,  intimidated by her and confused.   Her eyes narrowed as she took him by the neck and looked at the four heroes. 


    "You see" She said,  jerking the mage forward.   "No jewels.  We'll have to settle for blood".   With a wave of her hand the mages threw their hands up charged with magic as the demons rushed forward.  


    Before any spell could make contact an armor-clad red haired woman at least four times the size of a normal human burst out of the wall of the mansion above their heads and impacted the ground in front of the musketeers and slayer,  as she hit the ground seemed to ripple and shift into a ring of stone that rose up around the group of escapees and the dozens of mages and demons beyond it,  the sound of cracks resounding as attacks connected with the rock barrier.     There were so many however that this stone sphere already started to crack apart within the first few seconds.     But that was all it took.  The earth seemed to lurch beneath their feet while the red haired woman raised one hand in a forceful upward gesture.   As quickly as it happened,  the rock dome crumbled and fell off the sides of a great pillar she raised everyone up in,  away from the rabble below. 


    There were two bodies on the woman's shoulders,  on Siren's shoulders.  An unconscious Mr.Townsend on one,  and a remarkably not impaled Ms.Townsend.  Siren shrugged them off carefully,  raising a rocky couch out from in front of her to set them against while she grew even taller,  her mouth wide as she took in air,  her chest expanding more than just from the size increase.  She looked angry as she breathed in deeply,  channeling and emanating a sense of rage.  Feet at either end of the pillar they all stood on,  standing over the freed hostages, she released an ear shattering roar that caused a visible shockwave that blew her hair back and would make the people at her feet stumble or even fall on their asses while a thick heavy beam of motel lava radiating intense heat burst out from her mouth to slam down on the horde of enemies at the base of the pillar.   For six whole seconds the beam powered downards like a hellish waterfall, heat and intensity making a loud whistling scream of a noise while  Siren rotated her head to work the beam around the edges of the pillar.  


    On the ground below,  the beam splashed and flooded the ground with molten material melting flesh from bones and spreading out from along the path it took as she moved it.   The good news,  the many enemies washed away in the fiery waters.   The bad news,  the mansion was toast.   The rocky shell encasing the building glew hot as it melted apart like a chocolate easter bunny dropped in in boiling water,  along with the many earthen battlements the weak earth mages had erected. 




    Terracotta clones (Fake-Siren), Rock Dome,  Terraform,  (Spell Fusion) Mantled Hellstone Slayer's Volcanic Rage.   60% MP loss I do believe.  Not gonna bother too much,  as this post exceeds the job  requirements (Post 16) and things from here on are just fluff really.

    As the group entered the courtyard, as if from a scene in a movie, they were surrounded by many enemies. Ardere's eyes narrowed onto the woman with black hair, the four standing in front of the group of hostages. It seemed there was going to be a fight, and at this point he was willing to use the full force of his god slayer magic. Hell, he was ready to call in his ship and napalm this whole damn place. But before there was any sort of confrontation, a woman made her presence known. She was a rather large red headed woman, which he imagined was the product of some sort of magic rather than her actually being a giant. As her foot slammed down, it seemed she would be their savior today. Forming earth around the bastards in front of them, and taking them out. The amount of earth she had at her command was impressive, probably the most he had ever seen. There weren't many mages on this level of strength in the country, let along the continent. It was always nice to see one, especially one on his side. Though he could not help but he overwhelmed with a bit of fear and confusion, he was kind of mad he didn't get to be the one who put the black haired bitch and her army down.

    The thing that most confused him, was the body of the Ms Townsend, but since she was an earth mage apparently, he imagine she had cured Mr Townsend somehow. They were lucky the woman had arrived, she did not seem to be from Minstrel, but she was definitely someone of importance. The earth was rumbling, barely allowing him to stand at this point as he watched the onslaught that had occurred. The heat and the intensity made him sweat a bit, the ground shaking sending fear through not only his body but those of the musketeers and the hostages. Screams and shouts were heard as the estate was demolished, but the army of enemies along with it. Whoever this woman was, she had saved the day. Though she did not seem to are about the estate, then again he was a noble and could rebuild it. He should be happy to just be alive at this point. And once it was all over, he would wipe some sweat from his brow. It seemed that the heat had actually gotten to him a bit, something he was not used to. Once it was all done, he would guide the hostages out of the area. Looking over to the large woman, he shook his head a bit. This country was certainly strange. I guess I should thank you, for that. Looking over, he would whistle and make a hand motion as he watched his ship cease to be invisible. The Black Sun would slowly descend from it's position, the loud sounds of the engine restarted and his phoenix squawking in annoyance of the situation. The ship would land down and Ardere would lean against it. It seemed this mission was over, but he still had many questions left. Who was the woman in black, and who was this woman? Why did they kidnap the nobles? It seemed like more was going on here than on the surface level, but this was not his country. Though if it concerned him, he would find out soon enough.

    Siren stood watching the scene below the pillar as the bodies burned and melted with the spread of the lava enough to fill several Olympic swimming pools washed the scene away,  heating up the earth and converting ground into more lava.   The fires of the red hot sea below them reflected in her peachy colored eyes.   It sent a thrill through her core to watch them all burn,  to watch the stone melt into a glowing heap.   She stood there in pause for a few moments until she felt her own pillar become destabilized as the lava ate away at its base.  


    With a wave of her hand the pillar seemed to slide along the ground off away from the mansion carrying them all away from the scene and towards the town.   There were many onlookers there,  people out of their homes and buildings many with binoculars and spyglasses.  They were watching the scene as well as they could in concern for the noble Townsend, as popular as he was.   With her pillar driving its way down the hill the estate was sat upon and down the street a ways,  she lowered her pillar into the earth with another gesture into a crowd of onlookers while Siren remained tall and towering over the rabble,   many of them in awe at her larger than life size.


    They remained backed away for the most part,  some rushing forward to embrace some of the hostages.   The Musketeers stood around Townsend protectively,  marveling at the miracle while the noble himself stirred and rose up.


    "How?"  They said in wonderment.  "They were dead" One said as they felt the unconscious bodies for pulses, and checking for injuries.   Townsend was still missing a finger,  but Ms.Townsend was remarkably unharmed.  There were no marks on her body from the spike and her arm was in fact whole and well.  


    "I was able to reverse the petrification on Lord Townsend.   As for the lady..." Siren pulled a pendant from her neck.  A tear shaped red gem was the center piece inlaid in a golden engraved coin.  It was a replica of a powerful relic,  the Tear of the Goddess,  said to bring the dead back to life.  Now that it's magic would be spent anyway,  it was indistinguishable.   "I had been saving this since...  It may have served better purpose someday."  She turned to Townsend and snapped the chain from her neck and dangled it for the nobleman,  lowering it into his outstretched hands.  "But I wasn't about to let her die in such a cruel manner while I had the power to reverse it around my neck."   Her voice was low and somber,  reverent even.  She knew that Townsend knew all about the Tear and what the real deal is capable of.  


    He turned to his wife with tears in his eyes and pulled her close into his arms and hugging her tightly.  "Thank you.   Thank you" He said as his wife stirred and eyes fluttered open,  looking straight to Siren with a confirmation in her eyes before returning the embrace while their children broke from the group of hostages to join in.   


    "This means...  Nobody died.  Everyone made it out alive."  One of the ex-hostages said, stepping forward.  His tone of voice raising with each word and a sense of cheer spread as people people started clapping for the five.  


    When it died down and Townsend called all his employees,  guards and servants alike to break.  Free to go to their homes or stay with relatives while the Musketeers and Townsend family found some privacy in the hall where the musketeers organized where they were to give a report and Siren and the fire slayer were bestowed honorary status as Musketeers,  complete with the uniform and all five of them received medals from Townsend himself in ceremonious fashion. 


    __________________________


    "I am glad you decided to arrive early, Lady Red.  I dare not imagine a life without my beloved."  Townsend said while lifting a steaming cup to sip.   His missing finger had been replaced by a prosthetic already,  a silver mechanical one that seemed even more graceful than those of flesh and blood.   


    "It wouldn't do to be late." She said,  sipping her own cup while he stared into his thoughtfully.   The afternoon sun was getting low on the horizon through the large window the two of them sat before on pearly marble tables in the finest establishment the town had to offer.  A private VIP floor was quiet and free of eavesdropping,  with an astounding view over the bustling town.  


    "She.  It.  That monster of a woman.  She did all this for those pages..." He spoke to himself for the most part.   "It's all because of these."  He said,  his hand around a pendant around his neck.  Siren sipped her tea again while he slipped the silvery chain over his head and held it before him while Siren raised an eyebrow.  


    "Your home was invaded for a piece of jewelry?" She said incredulously, scoffing.  "I would imagine someone doesn't amass over a hundred militant mages and a small army of demons over a necklace, my lord."


    "It isn't the necklace that's the matter.  She was after my pages from the Book of the Endless."  He said in a hushed voice,  looking over his shoulder.  Worried to even say the words out loud,  or fearful of "That monster of a woman" coming back.


    "I'm not familiar with it" She said, resting her cup of tea on the little china plate before her.  


    "And best it remain that way I say.  Cursed book.   That woman was willing to kill for this.  I fear she'd be willing for far more,  and I doubt she'd stop now if she's still out there.  If others are out there.  It isn't safe.  I don't want anything to do with it."  He held the pendant out for her and Siren's eyebrow rose.   Seeing her reaction,  he twisted a small gem in the side and the pendant opened up,  revealing two miniature slips of paper no more than a centimeter in width on either half.  "A gift for a gift.  Though I fear it is more of a curse.  You gave me my wife back.   I can only give you these.   The last two pages of the seven I owned.  I fear what would happen if they fell into the wrong hands.   I know of no one more capable than you, Lady Red.   Thank you.  You have my full support in your future endeavors and my backing, for what it is worth. "  He said as he dropped the pendant into her hands when she finally opened them for his token.  His hands closed over hers.  "Keep them safe,  please."  He pleaded as Siren turned the pendant over in her hand and nodded.   


    "I will guard them with all that I am." She said,  as his wife approached escorted by the waiter.   She was smiling and waved at her husband who waved back,  love in his eyes.  A Weight seemed to lift off of him as he was free of his burden and Siren looked at the other woman in the eyes,  recognition within them.  




    Siren stared into her eyes in the smooth silver surface of her blade before she looked over the edge of the weapon and sheathed it at her hip, through the black sash at her waist,  and stepped closer to the two nobles.   One stone and one quite dead.   Waving her hand over the man the stone crumbled away letting him fall to the floor unconscious while she tended to his wounds.    


    Behind her,  a fiery crack split the air and a woman stepped forward.   Eyes wide and shaking,  she looked around the room, eyes darting from corner to corner before locking in on the man on the floor... and her own body impaled on the spike.  Her hand went up to hide her mouth as she stared in shock.   She had been in Hell for hours,  tormented by the heat and demons until Siren brought her forward and through her gate.   Slain by Siren's own magic....  The woman was hers.  Her soul bound to hell,  bound to Siren.   


    Unceremoniously pulling the corpse off the spike Siren tossed the body through the hellgate while Ms.Townsend knelt by her husband.   


    "You know your job." Siren said with a commanding voice and the woman nodded quietly over her sleeping husband.  




    End Thread.
