Ruvel was struggling with trying to get out of the hole and the panic was written all over his normal stoic face as he knew just how long that drop was and given how he was right now there was no way he was going to make it back down safely. He was continue to slide back even though he wanted to cry due to the he fought back the tears, he didn't want to be seen in that light but then he didn't want to be seen in the current situation like a helpless child but then that was exactly what he was. 'Ordhabbi! Help him!'
Seyuki demanded in a panic knowing out of those who where at full strength she was the only one who could fly 'No'
was the reply that was given in response 'He's our summoner Ordhabbi, we are entrusted with his safety'
Shindara remarked hoping to get through to the demonic woman 'And? He hasn't summoned me'
she said coldly 'We can use our own energy to help him!'
Seyuki growled 'Unless summoned I don't have to'
she said with an uninterested tone 'Just wait til I'm ready firework I'm hunting you down'
Barthenz growled knowing right now he couldn't help he was to tired from remaining out for so long so he was at the mercy of Cirven for help.
Ruvel let out a gasp as he fell he moved to a position that he could embrace the fall but found that he had been caught his eyes looking to the side "No, that's not the reason"
he admitted though he was irked that he had to be carried once again out of the hole "Like Barthenz told you, I am physically weak" he said biting his lip in humiliation his eyes dropping "I can't hold over half my own weight, I struggle with anything over quarter"
he whispered he hated that he had to speak it, but knew this was likely something that the other would need to know given he was now part of his 'crew' "I rather that everyone not know that about me, it's already hard enough with my summons knowing"
he said honestly happy when he was placed on the ground. He listened to what he was been told and shook his head "I am not afraid of her, I'm afraid that you're going to feed me to her"
he said honestly he stepped forward placing his hand his hand on his chest a small smile on his lips as his eyes closed leaning forward just a little in respect "si mi bivai llewarin, shar si geou tepoha ekess yenta yenta thric ekess svabol wux tepoha tora di ve. wux re ekess majestic vur regal vi drekim ekess qe krara hefoc vi lincesa, coi ui vi petranaswin ekess tafiaf wux riluoh"
he said his tone humble as he spoke standing straight once more his hand moved to his side 'Seems you've been paying attention to your lessons kid'
Barthenz said sounding impressed 'It's language lessons or training... I'll take linguistics'
he commented back remembering the last lesson with Barthenz.
Hearing the other wanted to get off the island he was more than happy to oblige but remained stoic not wanting to let the other know that he was more than happy to get off the island even if it meant swimming. He didn't want his past to come up, nor did he want to let the other know he was more than likely being hunted for escaping "Somewhere you want to check?"
he finally repeated, wondering what could be so important that the other needed to check it straight away but then realised he most likely shouldn't question things "Thanks for saving me by the way"
he said realising he hadn't said it before and it was something that he should have. "Mysterious Canyon?"
He seemed confused, he hadn't heard of it before but then before the rumours he hadn't heard of this island either. "Why are we needing to go there? Is that your home?"
he asked showing he didn't understand but was at least trying to but he got a bad feeling in the pit of his stomach hearing how the other reacted and hearing how Cirven didn't really want her to stay "That's the place that harmed you both"
he felt like a fool all of a sudden "I'm sorry... I didn't know. We don't have to g-"
he was cut off as the other picked him up and plopped him on Zinnath's back making him instantly panic inside.'You're safe, calm down'
Seyuki said trying to comfort him 'Calm down from a fear I've had since escaping, unlikely'
he sent back to her bringing his knees to his chest hugging them his eyes closing as he concentrating on his breathing and humming Laurea's lullaby quietly to himself but stopped hearing his words "If you had been listening you would have heard that Ruvel means cursed moon not blood moon... and please do not call me that again, I want nothing to do with those damn evil ceremonies!"
his voice started gentle but by the end of it his voice had become somewhat aggressive, after that he went back to humming the lullaby once more to calm himself. Listening the other needed sleep he nodded understanding after all Cirven had been awake all night though he had no idea why it was almost as if he hadn't trusted them or waiting for an opening to attack.
He concentrated on humming the lullaby on the entire journey hugging his knees as the Zinnath moved he swayed with her, he knew that he was perfectly safe given if he did fall even from such a large height he knew at least two of his summons could fly and could catch him. Before he knew it they had landed at the entrance of the canyon his eyes going around as he slid off the dragons back walking a bit to stretch his legs, he should have rested but then if he tried it would have been bad when he woke, he hates the cold sweats and the screaming over the memories so would have to put up with what energy he had for now. He moved onto Cirven's back and allowed him to fly again his eyes closed as he hummed concentrating on the lullaby it was just something he done when he was restricted so he didn't focus on that. When they landed he looked around some more at the ruins of the once dark guild hall. "This is the entrance to your... um.."
he went silent knowing that places like these weren't really homes to people like them, they were reoccurring nightmares they couldn't avoid. Seeing the gesture Ruvel quickly moved to follow nodding to when he was told to be on guard, he in general never let it down but understood why the other was cautious about the place.
His eyes went around the large dark hall as they slowly adjusted to the dim light, their footsteps echoing as they walked over the crumbled rubble of the place. He had a really bad feeling about this place, to him it felt like the energy of the area was screaming for release of the pain it was in 'Kid, you're safe, I know it gives the same vibes as 'home' but it's not'
Barthenz tried his best to calm down the nervousness he felt in his young summoner but knew that he would be more jumpy than not within places that reminded him of his own 'trials'. Ruvel jamp back seeing the hand of something coming from the darkness his eyes going wide "W-What is that thing?!"
he blurted out he was in shock more than fear as it seemed it took out his teacher with little effort before throwing him towards the cliff leaving the youth with something he couldn't identify.'See this is what happens when people mess with nature'
Aelona said in a matter of fact way hating when people done such things that disrupted the natural cycles 'If that thing just took out Cirven how am I meant to deal with it?'
Ruvel put to his summons 'You don't our summoner, you use us the best you can and when you find an opening run'
Shindara stated not knowing if it was going to be possible given Ruvel's sick and fatigued state, even Ruvel was having doubts on that one but it's the only thing he could do. Seeing the charge Ruvel held his ground 'Kid move it's gonna hurt if that thing hits you!'
Barthenz yelled but for now Ruvel payed little mind to him concentrating on the charging abomination just as it was about to hit Ruvel ran up the unbroken wall narrowly dodging the things attack only to land behind it. 'Well played'
Barthenz said 'Not out of the woods yet'
he thought back panting a little.
He knew he shouldn't really double summon but right now it would be handy given the situation, he knew this place was likely to narrow for the other to attack or so he hoped, taking out his dagger he sliced it over the palm of his right hand allowing the light blood he had to fall on the ground "I summon blood, I summon hate, I summon war and anger warrior of death her my call... Barthenz appear!"
he called out, he hoped the other had enough time to rest but he was unsure, as the summoning finished Barthenz appeared within the runed circle. "I call on our contractual tasks and negotiations Barthenz."
he said wincing as he felt the backlash already from them "Kid, watch yourself"
he commented knowing that Ruvel wasn't really strong enough to do what he was doing but likely believed he had no other choice 'Where's sparky?'
he asked through their bond as he dashed forward dodging what he believed to be limbs of the opponent.'That thing bashed him into the wall a few times before throwing him through it, he didn't look so good'
he sent back his eyes going to the hole wondering if it he should chance a double summoning, biting his lip he nodded assuring himself "Edaenz"
he whispered into the wind the shimmering blue skinned woman with matching hair appearing next to him 'Please go deal with Cirven, I think he's hurt badly'
he knew that the older mage could take care of himself but he had just no idea how strong the other's healing abilities were and didn't want to risk finding out his eyes glow becoming stronger. Edaenz was concerned seeing the glow starting to return 'you shouldn't be double summoning when you're sick dear'
she said through the bond but going to do the task she was asked to, as she headed to the hole the arm like thing of the abomination going towards her but was quickly sliced off thanks to Barthenz "I swear... all you mages are absolutely defenceless"
he growled running in again.
Ruvel wanted to run but he couldn't, he didn't know this place and who knows what problems he could run into to, then there was the fact he would leave Cirven defenceless in his current state and he just wouldn't do it. "Destroy it Barthenz, it is an abomination and needs to be put down"
he said coldly his eyes in full glow once more as he watched both his summons at work, pleading Barthenz could hold out long enough for Cirven to get back on his feet but his eyes darted back into the room the thing had come from as he heard mumbling in the distance "Not more of these things"
he was fatigued as it was he was sure that this was going to have him rest for a bit before heading in there 'Please don't come any closer, I can't deal with you right now'
he begged internally even keeping it hidden from his summons not knowing how they would react given he knew he was already in trouble for the double summoning he had just done. His eyes went back to Barthenz who seemed to have taken a hit or two in his distraction. "Hold on a little longer"
he called out to the summon knowing that this thing better make sure that Barthenz ended in a grave or it would regret it.
