    Default Re: Hybrid

    Chapter 177: Setting Off.

    Tenkai was called by the Paladin to a remote area near outside of the city. There the two sat in the ground covered in snow.

    Tenkai: So, what do you wish to talk to me?

    Paladin: Have you ever wondered what I am?

    Tenkai:...I would be lost if I asked that question to everyone I met.

    Paladin: I am a Shinto. One of the beings that founded your homeland.

    Tenkai: Really? Why is a Shinto under the Fairy Mother?

    Paladin: Long ago I lost my physical body. What you see is an artificial body created by her. Only my spirit is what was left of me. But there was a price. For creating a body that would serve an immortal like me, she had to cut of a great deal of her power. You see, it wasn't always she looked like an infant she appears now. And handling a fake body isn't quite the same as my original.

    Tenkai: So both of you two are shadows of your former selves?

    Paladin: You could say that.

    Tenkai: This isn't exactly what you wanted to tell me, right?

    Paladin: Yes. Take a look.

    He summons what appears to be a dark green flame on his palm.

    Paladin: This is Soul that is outside of a living matter. My kind is able to perceive and manipulete this form of matter. But you wander what is when inside a living body.

    Then the Soul on his palm turns into a flame with three layers. The outer layer was yellow, the middle was green and the inside was white.

    Paladin: Let's say this is like a map or a diagram to any living being. Any colour of this Soul represents a part of it.

    Tenkai: What are they?

    Paladin: The part that covers is the physical strenght or Chi. I believe it is also pronounced Ki. The most inner part is the Mana, the source of magic. The part in the middle is the Soul itself. One's own spirit. It is what links the physical body to one's inner magic. Did you know that the Light of Fairies and the Darkness of Vampires and Hybrids are actually the fusion between their Mana and Soul?

    Tenkai: That is certainly interesting.

    Paladin: And what do you think about your Foxfire?

    Tenkai:....Is it the same thing?

    Paladin: Not quite.

    He turns the Soul in his palm into an azure blue flame.

    Tenkai: Huh? How...How did you?

    Paladin: It is just a demonstration. I can't do more than this. The Foxfire is actually the fusion between those three parts. It is your strenght, spirit and magic combined.

    Tenkai: I never realized that.

    Paladin: You might had used for healing yourself once, right? It is because it is part of your physical body.

    Tenkai: By the way...I once used this to heal Edward in Zhar.

    He shows the Fox's Heart to him.

    Paladin: The Fox's Heart....Long ago, it was used for this purpose.

    Tenkai: What is exactly?

    Paladin: It was a device for storage of Foxfire. I guess it had some left on it.

    Tenkai:...Why did you told me this?

    Paladin: You are the first Blue Hybrid I seen in aeons. I am not someone that can just leave this place when I want to.

    Tenkai: I can see why.

    Paladin: Anyway, I hope this information helps in the future. I feel like there is a long and hard road for you ahead.

    Tenkai: That is how I lived.

    Back in Gel, the fairies were busy helping to save the remaining citzens. Titania and the Red Beasts were waiting for the others to return. A floating heart-shaped fire passes nearby and all of them looks with curiosity.

    Johnnathan:...What in the world?

    Edward and Vanilla then appears.

    Vanilla: Hi. Sorry about the late, I was saying goodbye to my friends.

    Johnnathan: Okay.


    Vanilla:....No one is going to ask what we have been up to?

    Florencia: Should we?

    Vanilla: Well...Nevermind. We have an announcement.

    Evelyne: What do you mean by "We"?

    Vanilla: Well....This is a bit embarassing, but....Me and Edward...We are a couple now.

    Evelyne: Ah! Really?! Congratulations!

    West: Hold on, did I really heard that? Edward actually got hooked up with a girl he likes it? That went faster than I expected....Hell, actually I wasn't expected that at all.

    Edward: I thought the same thing about you.

    Florencia: Well, I guess all my work paid off.

    Titania: You didn't really taught him anything of the subject, right?

    Johnnathan:....When I invited you four at my crew months ago, I wasn't expecting this kind of development. Does this means you gonna sail with us Vanilla?

    Vanilla: You betcha! I can't let my beloved wander around alone in the dangerous world outside.

    Edward: I don't know if I am happy or bothered by that.

    Vanilla: Anyway I have a question Fairy Mother. What does that Snow Fairy thing even means?

    Titania:....Back in the days of old and even before that there were 2 types of fairies: Light and Snow. The Light Fairies would awake in the beggining of Spring and sleep at the end of Summer and the Snow Fairies would awake at the begging of Fall and at the end of Winter. But those were the fairies of my generation. There isn't any fairy that came from them since the war against the Fire Demons. Only one of them survived. Silvia. But she had perished long ago.

    Florencia: What happened?

    Titania: You know the story about the Ghost Fairy right?

    Vanilla: That is true?

    Titania: Yeah. She really did had an affair with a human, but the avalanche story was kind of an mistake. You see...she really looked like a ghost to be exactly. So people would mistake her for one.

    Johnnathan: Gross.

    Titania: And you Vanilla, is certainly a descedant of her.

    Vanilla: And how is that possible?

    Titania: I believe she had human children with her beloved. So she must have turned into a familiar to be able to live alongside her children and descedants. We Immortals done a lot of crazy things.

    Vanilla: Does this means my mother could also do that thing I did it?

    Titania: Well, sometimes there is a generation gap there and there.

    After a while, Tenkai appears and after him, Aladdin, Heinrich and Chemira.

    Titania: So, what did my Paladin wanted to discuss?

    Tenkai: It was not important.

    Johnnathan: I've been meaning to ask: How did you three got here in the first place?

    Chemira: So, there is an old shack near the academy. That was Aladdin's old house when he was studying here. He installed a portal that he can teleport using a special talisman. I happen to have a spare one.

    Heinrich: By the way, how did you know about what was going to happen here?

    Chemira: I hear so many thing at my tavern. Turns out I can't ignore when I hear the words Gel and Assault at the same setence.

    Vanilla: I think I know what house you are talking about it. Professor said it was cursed. Was it related of how you brought me here so fast?

    Aladdin: I may can change a few coordinates. Anyway, we are taking our leave through there. You guys gonna get the Gloria right?

    Johnnathan: Can't leave her here after all.

    Heinrich:...Say Johnny. Why don't you take a break?

    Johnnathan: A break?

    Heinrich: Even outlaws needs vacations at once. And I think you lot deserves it.

    Florencia: Don't wanna be that girl, but I am not really hot to go after ancient artifacts for a long time.

    Johnnathan: Alright then. A little pause never hurted anyone. Plus, we are owning those two a honeymoon.

    West: Well said it.

    "Excuse me..."

    Ronan appears by teleportation.

    Vanilla: Headmaster?

    Ronan: I wanted to remind you that your mission is still ongoing...And I need to give an update on it. "Aid Johnnathan Highlander." Just that.

    Vanilla: Oh...Kinda forgot it was a job.

    Ronan: But the payment is still the same. 100 pieces of Gold.

    Johnnathan:...Kinda low at this point.

    Ronan: And....What is your name again? The vampire one...Night Time?

    Evelyne: Evelyne.

    Ronan: This is for you.

    He hands over what seems to be a dark ring.

    Evelyne:...Thanks, but we already have a mirage ring.

    Ronan: Put it on.

    She puts in, but her appearance does not changes.

    Evelyne:...Is it broken?

    Titania: Nope. It is functioning alright.

    Ronan: That ring only works to those that do not know about your secret. I made it long ago to Johnnathan's mother.

    Johnnathan: You did it?

    Ronan: Yes. But I'm afraid I never had the chance to give it to her. Your father....really loved her appearance. He wanted to see her as herself while hiding her identity. So you can have it.

    Evelyne: I appreciate the gift.

    Ronan: And you there...Florencia isn't it?

    Florencia: What?

    Ronan:...Good luck with this rude husband you found it.

    West: Stupid old coot...

    He teleports away and Heinrich and Aladdin takes their leave.

    Heinrich: See you back in our base okay.

    Johnnathan: Roger.

    Titania: Good luck to you all.

    The Red Beasts leave and Titania watches them depart. The Paladin then arrives with Excalibur on his hand.

    Paladin: They might decides the fate of this world.

    Titania: And we must help them as much as we can. Isn't that right....Izanagi?

    Paladin:.....I am your Paladin now.

    From faraway Petit watches it them to depart as well.



    Honny appears patting him on the back.

    Honny: The Bakery on the Mal's Street opened. Wanna grab a piece of chocolate cake.

    Petit:....Sure. Why not?

    Meanwhile on the Death Crow, Raven is speaking with Noir in the Captain's Room.

    Raven: So, what about Moonlight?

    Noir: Very upset because her right eye is not regenerating.

    Raven: I guess we can't find pester Evelyne anymore, huh?

    Noir: What do we do now?

    Raven: Keep the preparations going foward. I adapt very well to these sorts of situation. By the way, sorry about the Umbra Squad.

    Noir: It is okay. I can make more.

    Raven: Anyway, we did lost Bilaf didn't we? I don't think we can find three more Hateds to soon.

    Noir: We still got Purple Haze. Also, Black Blade and Red King. I can't think of anyone that can still pose a threat to us.

    Raven: Speaking of which, son't forget to include those four wombats into the schemes. Specially that Sheldon guy.

    Noir: Understood...By the way, did you saw anything unusual on the Red Beast today?

    Raven: Hmm....For a moment it really did it seems he could made me shiver.

    Noir: I see. Anything else?

    Raven:....How do you feel? About Evelyne and Johnny-boy?

    Noir:....I'll be off now.

    He then leaves without giving a single answer.

    Raven:...That's right little brother. You can choose your friends, but can't choose your family.

    On the hallway, Noir lays off his shoulder on the wall and grasp his chest.

    Noir: I hope....You can give her the life she deserves it....Highlander.

    Obligatory Fanservice Side Chapter 1

    On a isolated island in the middle of the ocean, filled with a tropical jungle and a calm-looking beach, The Gloria was anchored next to a pier build it on the corner of the island that had some sort of small house on it. The sun was really bright, bathing the entire island with sunlight. Johnnathan and Edward were at the beach, both of them with wearing swimming shorts and Edward was also wearing a white sleeveless shirt. The two of them were facing the ocean and Johnnathan was stretching his arms a little bit.

    Edward: Nice spot you brother got here. Is this really a secret place?

    Johnnathan: Not really. It is just hidden by a illusionary fog created by Aladdin. Also, it is out of almost all of sea routes.

    Edward: Can he really do that?

    Johnnathan: He would kill you if he heard that.

    Edward: Well, it is no five-star resort, but this place really is pretty. But where is everyone?

    "There you two are."

    Florencia appears with sunglasses, a white and green bikini top and a cloth-like skirt around her waist covering her left leg. She was drinking a giant strawberry with a straw on it.

    Edward: Wow. I never thought I would see you so stylish.

    She removes her glasses and glares at him.

    Florencia: Are you saying I am ugly?

    Edward: N-No ma'am! Not at all!

    Florencia: Well, not that I care about your opinion. Anyway I already gave West and Tenkai their tasks. *Sluuuurp*

    Johnnathan: Task?

    Florencia: Just watch.

    Florencia guides them to another area of the beach where there was beach umbrellas, chairs and an entire shack. West was laying on the sand with nothing but a black swimming trunk looking exhausted.

    Johnnathan:....I don't remember that house there.

    Florencia: I asked West to build one.

    Johnnathan: You what?

    Florencia: Don't worry. Tenkai helped.

    Johnnathan: But why did you do that?

    Florencia: For storage our supplies.

    Edward: Supplies?

    Florencia: The fruits we collected and the animals we hunted.

    Johnnathan:....All this in a single hour?

    West: Don't worry....that was....piece of cake.

    He responds with a thumbs up before resting again. Then Tenkai appears from ocean wearing a blue short and a white jacket carrying a large stripped swordfish and a net full of sea basses.

    Tenkai: Is this enough.

    Florencia: Yes, Tenkai dear. We have enough.

    Johnnathan: A Tiger Marlin. Nice catch you got there.

    Tenkai: It was the second we got. West also got a Flame Warthog in the jungle.

    Edward: Now where is Vanilla and Evelyne?

    Florencia: Weird. They were supossed to be here by now.

    Meanwhile at the house in the pier, there were changing rooms inside alongside some chests and crates. Vanilla was there with a white and blue bikini with a short skirt on the waist in the front of one of the doors in the women's side.

    Vanilla: Come on, Eve! It has been near a hour!

    Evelyne: I...I am finished here. It just...I am not really into this swimsuit.

    Vanilla: What? It looked cute.

    Evelyne: But...I think it is just too much.

    Vanilla: Oh, don't be that girl right now.

    Evelyne: I'll be that girl right now, yes!

    Vanilla: Really? Johnnathan told us that you often used to dance with a lot of Rogues looking at you.

    Evelyne: It's....different. It is not the same when my family is not around.

    Vanilla: Was your family around when Johnnathan saw you?

    Evelyne: Well....no. But it was mostly for him.

    Vanilla: Then do it for him then.

    Evelyne: This is not the same thing.

    Vanilla: Eve...You know there is no reason to hide your charms, right? Johnny already saw it all at this point.

    Evelyne: When you put that way...

    Vanilla: Look. I can't pull you out of here because you are physically stronger than me, but I am not willing to spend the time on this island without you. So how about instead of doing to Johnnathan alone...do it for me as well?

    Evelyne:....Alright. You win.

    Back at the beach, Florencia was drinking a giant grape with a straw and Edward a giant orange.

    Edward: Those Juicy Fruits are good. Can't believe I never drank one of those until now.

    Florencia: They are a bit rare. They are better drinking fresh though.

    Johnnathan: That's why we can't sell those.

    "Hey guys!"

    Vanilla appears running at them.

    Florencia: Hello there. What took you so long?

    Vanilla: It wasn't exactly my fault. So Edward, how do I look?

    She poses smiling with her arm behind her head.

    Edward: You look pretty.

    Vanilla:....That's it?

    Edward: Yeah?


    She then sits on the sand, curling in a round position showing her back at him looking depressed.

    Edward:...Did I said anything?

    Florencia: Edward....

    Florencia grabs him by the hair and stares at him.

    Florencia: When the girl asks the boy she loves how does she look in a swimsuit, she expects more than being called just pretty. West! How do I look right now?

    West: Fantastic, Flor. Your skin under the sunlight is a sight to behold.

    He speaks without looking at her because of the fatigue.

    Florencia: See?

    Edward: I think I get it....It is kind of embarasing to say.

    Florencia: So...how about not to say?


    He then walks towards Vanilla from behind and gives a quick kiss to her cheek. She blushes and smiles with a heart-shaped fire coming out of her head.

    Edward:...Did I do right?

    Florencia: I suposse it is fair for two young humans.

    "....I-I'm here."

    Johnnathan: Eve?

    She appears before them with a black and red bikini that the lines on the top crossed her cleavage and hanged on her neck. She was with herarms around her top and her body was expelling some sort of red smoke.


    Evelyne: Why the sudden silent? Am I really that stunning?

    Johnnathan:...Oh. Well, it is because there is all of this red stuff coming out of your body.

    Evelyne: Oh! About that...It is my Dark Blood reacting with the sunlight. It is sort of a self-defense mechanism.

    Florencia: So that's how your bodies resists the day. Interesting.

    Johnnathan: Well, that aside...You are looking just perfect. I never thought you could look more lovely than before.

    Evelyne: R-Really?...Teehee. That coming from just feels right.

    Florencia: Seee? That is how it is done.

    Edward: I already get it.

    Tenkai: Hey Johnny. Wanna have a swimming race by reaching those rocks over there and returning to the shore.

    Johnnathan:...Let's make a best of three.

    Tenkai: On it!

    The two of them starts to swim towards the rocks like dolphins.

    Florencia: And off he goes. Better keep an eye on them. So anyone else is gonna swim.

    Edward: Eeer....I rather stay here. I do not like the salt.

    Vanilla: And I don't really know how to swim anyway.

    Evelyne: Hmm...Is that so? Then what is that outfit for? Only to look cute?

    Vanilla: That was the intention, so....

    Evelyne: Well....Revenge Time!

    She picks Vanilla and holds her in her arms.

    Evelyne: Let's get soaked together!

    Vanilla: W-Wait! Noooooo!

    Evelyne runs to the water and reaches a far deep area.

    Vanilla: Eeep! I'm afraid of drowing!

    Evelyne: Heehehe. Then you will have to hold me tight....By the way, you don't mind if I give a teeny little bite later on your cute neck, do you?

    Vanilla: Eh?

    Evelyne: Don't worry. I am not hungry....for now.

    She licks her lips and looks at Vanilla with an intimadating look.

    Vanilla: C-Come on this isn't funny.

    Evelyne: Okay then.

    She tosses Vanilla a bit far from her.


    Vanilla: Glub...It is too deep.

    Evelyne: Don't worry...I'll be catching you.

    She starts to slowly approach her.

    Evelyne: I'm gonna get you...I'm gonna get you...I'm gonna get yooooou....

    Vanilla: Aaaah!

    Vanilla starts to struggle and manages to swim in the direction of the shore while Evelyne pursues her.

    West: You don't gonna try to rescue her?

    Edward:....Nah. This might be good to her.

    West: Worst. Boyfriend. Ever.

    Florencia: Weeeeest....

    West: What?

    Florencia: Come here and pass this on me, sweetie.

    She was laying on a cloth in the sand holding a Sunscreen Lotion.

    West: Alright then.

    Florencia: And remember. Pass it everywhere....Really everywhere.

    West:....Edward, don't you dare eavesdrop.

    Edward: Don't need to warn about.

    A few hours passes and the gang enjoys his time. At the end of the day, they were around a bonfire with some grilled seafood and other sorts of food around that Florencia prepared. Everyone had a Juice Fruit on their hands.

    Vanilla: I must say....besides that incident earlier...this might be the best time I spent with all of you.

    Evelyne: Haha. Well, you were willing to have me around so I had to return the favor.

    She then looks at the sea and see the sun setting off at the end of the ocean.

    Evelyne: What a nice sunset.

    Johnnathan: Yeah. Reminds me of our days in Mians doesn't it?

    Evelyne: But now it is not only us two.

    Vanilla: I hope we can de this more often.

    West: After everything we got through, this is worthy.

    Florencia: Weeeell, since I am in a good mood....Tenkai, I have another task for you.

    Tenkai: Oh brother....What is it now?

    Florencia: Choose.

    Tenkai: Huh?

    Florencia: Me, Vanilla and Evelyne. Which one of us three is the most pretty-looking?

    Tenkai: W-W-What?! Why me?

    Florencia: Because if we ask any of the other three, the answer would be obvious, so tell us who is the most dazzling here?

    Tenkai: D-Don't you guys have anything to say?!

    Johnnathan: Oh don't bother. After all the answer is obvious anyway.

    Edward: Well, Vanilla is number one to me, but I would expect that to be the case.

    West: Hey! We're brothers, remember? I'm a wolf and you are a fox...pretty much related. Of course you know the answer.

    Florencia: See? It's basically a tiebreaker here. By the way, no hard feelings you two, because it is obvious me.

    Vanilla: Since when you were so full of yourself?

    Florencia: It's not everytime you have to act free instead of being the first-mate of the ship so it is kind of getting out of my cage. And as you can see not only I have some level in authority, I am the only one who is married.

    Vanilla: That has nothing to do with anything!>:I

    Florencia: So go ahead Tenkai. Just state that I am the winner here.

    Vanilla: Now hold it right there. I am certainly the one who looks the cutest. I am even the youngest between you three.

    Evelyne: Well, then do I have a say on all of this? Because as you can see I have the better body. All Vampires do!

    Florencia: But sometimes, more is less. I am certainly in the ideal point.

    Evelyne: Except being a bit too old, isn't it?!

    Florencia: Excuse me?!

    Vanilla: Yeah. The very fact that both Eve and me are younger gives us some points. And just because you have a better body does not mean you are looking the best in general. As you can see my outfit is the cutest and it suits me the most.

    Evelyne: W-What?! How is the lack of sex appeal makes you better looking?

    Vanilla: And just because you have a better body, it does not mean mine is not above avarage!

    Florencia: You really gonna compare your avarage human body to a fairy and vampire one?!

    Vanilla: As I said this swimsuit totally suits me...unlike yours!

    Florencia: What do you mean it does not!

    Vanilla: Anyone would look good on those, honestly!

    Evelyne: Oh. Do I smell some jealously here?!

    Vanilla: It is the truth isn't it? Face it!


    The girls keep discussing between them while the guys silently watches it.

    West:...I guess you are free on this choice now Tenkai.

    Tenkai: Women...are so complicated.-_-

    Edward: Tell me about it.

    Johnnathan: But you know....I can't tell why, but...I guess that is what Florencia was after all along.

    Edward: Really?

    Johnnathan: Yeah....And I guess she is having fun with it.

    The sun latter sets and they all got too tired to talk, so they just decided that they are beautiful on their own...But they would secretly ask for Tenkai's opinion in secrecy anyway.

    Default Re: Hybrid

    Chapter 178: Advances.

    A month have passed since The Red Beast Pirates fought in Gel and set off again to the sea after Vanilla returned to the crew. On the meantime, they were having a long vacation by travelling to some islands that the Black Demon Pirates had discovered over the years. Currently they were on an island that was surrounded by rocks on the shore.


    On the beach, Evelyne was sitting on a rock eating a piece of watermelon while watching Johnnathan fighting against West in the beach, clashing their weapons at each other.


    Johnnathan: Heh. You still mad about that time in Circa?

    West: I would be lying if I said no!

    He delivers a two-handed thrust with his machete, but Johnnathan rolls to the side to attack him.

    West: Doppel-Wolf!

    A wolfman made of pure darkness pops up out of West's body and attacks Johnnathan with multiple jabs.

    Johnnathan: Whoa, whoa, whoa...

    He dodges the first strikes but gets fazed by the latter ones.

    West: From behind!

    West attacks with a kick from behind, but Johnnathan blocks by putting his sword on his back.

    Johnnathan: Nope!

    Then a dark light arrow comes from afar passing right in front of his head.

    Johnnathan: Woops. Easy there.

    Then a rain of dark light beams comes from above and Johnnathan starts dodging them with precision until one of them hits his foot.

    Johnnathan: Ouch!

    West: Graaah!

    West attacks as a wolfman with his machete and matches his attack with Johnnathan's blade.

    Johnnathan: You got tougher.

    West: I can't embarass myself in front of my wife.

    Johnnathan then looks at his right and see Evelyne eating her watermerlon with a rather cute face.


    Johnnathan:....One day.

    He activates his Dark Synchro and pushes West back.

    West: Two can play this game!

    He reverts back to human form and summons a large wolf's head made of darkness.

    West: Moon Eater!

    He launches the wolf at Johnnathan with it's jaws open and delivers a massive dark impact. When the dust settles it, Johnnathan is gone.

    West:....I didn't killed him did I?

    "Think again."

    He looks behind and see Johnnathan ready to strike with his sword with a large red horned skull behind him.

    West: Oh my aunt Shepherd...


    But Evelyne sneaks and hugs Johnnathan from behind biting his neck.

    Johnnathan: Ah!

    Evelyne: Mmmm....*sluuuurp*

    Johnnathan:....Alright. I get it.

    Johnnathan reverts his Dark Synchro and cares Evelyne's head while she feeds on him.

    West: Hey, come on. I could have handled it.

    "Better not."

    Florencia then appears from the forest behind them.

    Florencia: It would it be far too risk. We don't anyone to die while training don't we?

    West: Yeah, but it always happens like less than a minute after he turns full-vampire. We won't be making any progress like this.

    Florencia: I disagree. Johnnathan's reaction time has been improved. He only got hit once by my arrows and you are controlling your magic better.

    West: Still, I am feeling that I am being getting behind here.

    Evelyne: Aaaah...

    She stops drinking Johnnathan's blood with a satisfied look.

    Evelyne: It would help if you guys didn't tried to kill each other everytime. I mean, it is just sparring practice.

    West: There is no better way to prepare us. Specially when there is a chance to stumble with a rogue ship out there. Just like last week. And the week before.

    Johnnathan: Yeah. We had to like, kill every single one of them....like usual.

    Evelyne: Well, I was actually talking about Johnny. Everytime you swing a sword as a vampire, it is always to the kill.

    Johnnathan: Sorry, but when my blood fevers like when it happpens I just can't hold it back. I guess that explains why my mother didn't trained me and Henry when we were children. Does vampires have that difficult to hold it back.

    Evelyne: I can't say it. I was one of those rare ones that lived peacefully.

    Johnnathan: Knowing your thirst back in the days, I wouldn't wanted to have meet someone not peacefully of your kind. Also, didn't West just tried to eat me with a giant wolf head?

    West: Werewolves have killing intent as well...By the way, how can't Johnnathan see you when you sneak behind him everytime?

    Florencia: It's because she has no killing intent when she does that. It's the equivalent of a kiss.

    Evelyne: Yeah, that must be it. It's just me calming him with a smooch.

    She starts to delivers multiple kisses to Johnnathan's neck.

    Johnnathan: Hahaha! Stop it! It tickles!

    West: Man I can't keep going with this...I wanna have a spar against Tenkai, then.

    Johnnathan: To be fair...I too want to have a shot with Tenkai, but he seems kind of lonely lately.

    He then looks at a rocky area near the shore and Tenkai was meditating with his body covered with a huge foxfire.

    West:....Those flames are bigger.

    Florencia: It seems he is looking foward to strenghten his spirit rather than his body.

    Johnnathan:...Something tells me it is both.

    Then a huge wave appears and hits Tenkai, but he does not faze and the flames prevent him from even getting wet.

    Johnnathan:...That is weird.

    West: Really? I mean, it is impressive, but not new to him.

    Johnnathan: No. You see, waves like that aren't common. The waters here are rather calm...Also, the shore was larger than I remember. It wasn't like this for years.

    Florencia: Almost like in Wildlands.

    Evelyne: Oh. It is probably the Kraken.


    Florencia: What?

    Evelyne: You know, The Kraken. The giant mollusk monster that the swims in deep of the ocean. It has the power to increase the tides and creates seastorms.

    Florencia: I know what The Kraken is! Wasn't the Kraken frozen under the South Pole?!

    Evelyne: Weeell, Raven MIGHT had gone there in the search of Neptune's Pearl and MIGHT had disturbed it's sleep so it MIGHT caused a worldly enviromental disturbance.

    Johnnathan: Wait....That isn't one of the Keys isn't it?

    Evelyne: Totally.

    Johnnathan: Why didn't you told us that before?

    Evelyne: Because I didn't wanted to spend our break at the South Pole, thank you very much.

    Florencia: Sometimes I forget she was a Princess...

    Meanwhile inside the forest, Edward was practicing by striking floating ice block covered in lightning with his spear with Vanilla looking at a floating chronometer next to her. He destroys both of the nearby ices and manages to finish the remaining with several thrusts of his spear.

    Edward: Huff....Huff....How did I do?

    Vanilla: Hmmm....I believe you were a about 30 miliseconds too late. I guess I am choosing what we dinner tonight.

    Edward: Can it not be Noodles again?

    Vanilla: Come on they are easy to cook. Flor has been teaching me.

    Edward:...Alright. I suposse I do deserve this.

    Vanilla:...You seem worn out. Something's the matter?

    Edward: Well...It just seems that Johnnathan and the others are kinda letting me off of their activities. Maybe it is because I'm human.

    Vanilla: Don't bother with that. You have a Magic Genius all for yourself.

    Edward: Still, I really want to be able to keep it up with them.

    Vanilla: I dunno about that. You're doing a pretty good job so far. Florencia has been speaking good things about you lately.

    Edward: Yeah, she told me...But I can't help but to fight Johnnathan or West sometime.

    Vanilla: Heehee. Men are so reckless.....

    She then looks at Edward with a concerned face.

    Vanilla: Eddie....

    Edward: Yeah?

    Vanilla:....Nothing. Let's go back.

    They return to the beach and reunties with the rest. But Aladdin was with them talkign to Johnnathan.

    Vanilla: Ah! Master Aladdin. What a surprise.

    Aladdin: Hey there Vanilla....It seems your magic has improved.

    Vanilla: Yep! Now I can create Ice on my own.

    Aladdin: I see, I see....It seem this break was good for all of you after all.

    Johnnathan: And another thing, we discovered a Key in South Pole. The Neptune's Pearl.

    Aladdin: Where did you heard that?

    Johnnathan: Eve. She told us Raven tried to get once.

    Aladdin: I see...What more do you know about the Keys?

    Evelyne: Hmmm...Outside from what we already got...The Pearl....The Dragon's Eye....The Beast King's Fang...The Purple's Crown....And the Death Bell that it's with my brother.

    Aladdin: That is indeed good info...I expected no less from a vampire.

    Edward: I do have a question as well about this.

    Aladdin: What is it?

    Edward: It is about the 1000 Mutiny Story. I've been reading on my free time on the last few days and I noticed that....the main protagonist appears to have no name at all. And the keys aren't named either. All it say is that the main character is know as The Pirate...I was just wondering...how is this story even related about all this?

    Evelyne:...My brother...He once met him.

    Aladdin: R-Really?! Does it means...it is real?!

    Evelyne: Yeah...but there is not many infos about the Keys in those stories....But everything else about the backstabbings and betrayals...seems true.

    Florencia: If that is the case...there is one person in history that matches that character....

    Aladdin:....The Redbeard.

    West: I heard some stories about him...Even the children chant songs about him.

    Johnnathan: By the way, any info from Weasel?

    Aladdin: He last made contact with us three weeks ago. It seems to be about Dragon's Valley...Also he just appears to have gone missing.

    Johnnathan: Missing...for three weeks...That isn't normal for him

    Aladdin: Well, it does not matter now....Also Florencia...

    Florencia: What?

    Aladdin: From First-Mate to another....We need to have a talk...You too West.

    West: Alright.

    Aladdin: The rest wait in the ship. It will not take long.

    Johnnathan: Roger. Yo! Tenkai! We leaving!

    The five of them leaves the beach and Florencia and West are left behind.

    Aladdin: I'll make this quick. West, how are you dealing with your dark powers?

    West: Huh.

    He summons a dark wolfman next to him.

    West: Pretty smoothly.

    Aladdin:....You remember about Johnnathan's Dark Link, right?

    Florencia: Yes. What is about it?

    Aladdin: You see....there are many different types of Hybrids around there. Some are better creating barriers around for defense....other can strenght their own elemental spells....some can create things out of thin air.... and the most common of them amplifies their physical condition....but I believe only 2 of them can turn into vampires with one hundred percent magic syncronization.

    Florencia: Your point....

    Aladdin: I thought that Heinrich got his ability from me and Johnnathan, but we merely made him advance his first step....I believe it is something that he could achieve a little later is it weren't for two senders like me and Johnny.

    Florencia: Is that so?

    Aladdin: Yes. As a Sender, I believe Johnnathan were born with more Magic than Heinrich and that is why he could achieve his form at such a young age even though that was unwise....but if he tried about 2 years later...he would not have problem with it.

    Florencia: Wait....Didn't West and Heinrich matured their magic without Johnnathan in Gel?

    Aladdin: Exactly my point. Johnnathan was in another world back then. Heinrich's Dark Synchro was incomplete at first, but got completed a short while ago. And it appears West's magic also evolved. My conclusion is Johnnathan gave it you the basic. And now you two are to master those by yourself. But he still have the power to send more of his darkness to other Hybrids. I told you this, because I didn't wanted to you guys to be dependent on him....and that your darkness is a gift from him. Never forget that.

    West:...Well, I sure am grateful for this, actually.

    Florencia: We always have been since we joined him.

    Aladdin: Good...That was actually kind of embarassing for me to say...Oh yeah. I have to tell something to Eve.

    The three of them returns to the ship where the rest of them were on the deck.

    Aladdin: Evelyne.

    Evelyne: Yeah?

    Aladdin: Well....You see...that thing you asked us to make.... I already put in the captain's room.

    Evelyne: Ah! Really?! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I can't believe it!

    Vanilla: Huh...What is it?

    Aladdin: I....don't really know how to explain. Anyway...

    He then summons a carpet that floats in the air and mouts on it.

    Aladdin: I see you lot back at the base.

    He then flies to the horizon.

    Evelyne: Johnny! Come here! You neeed to see this!

    Johnnathan: Eh?

    She catches him with her chains and pulls him along The rest follows them in curiosity into the captain's room.

    Evelyne: Tadaaaaa!

    There was a giant red and black coffin next to the bed that could fit two people inside.

    Vanilla: Is....Is that a coffin?

    Tenkai: A very big one...Is someone going to die?

    Evelyne: It's a couple coffin! It's what the married couples in Hollowgrounds used as a bed!

    Johnnathan: But....we already have a bed.

    Evelyne:....Johnnathan. A Rogue is still a Vampire...For all my life I've been sleeping in a coffin or something similar for most of the times....And as a vampire maiden...I want...for we to spend time....in a coffin....get it, hotstuff?

    Johnnathan: But...

    Evelyne: We done things you way until now....Now I want for us to things MY way from now on!

    Florencia: Actually, can you ever breath inside those?

    Evelyne: Well, it was never an issue for my people...but I recomended a air purifier inside.

    She then turns into a red cloud and flies to inside the coffin.

    Evelyne: Well, look at that...the base is comfy and soft and there is even an button for open and close....Now Joooooohnny...

    She then looks gave him a seductive look and taps the othe side of the coffin.

    Evelyne: Come here and try thiiiiiiis....

    He looks at it very anxious.

    Johnnathan:.....Alright, a quick test might be harmless.

    He then lays on the coffin next to her.

    Johnnathan:....Hey, this is actually very relaxin-

    She then press the button and the coffin closes with the two inside.


    Edward:...Should we....leave those two alone?

    Florencia: Wait, let's just see a littel while.

    After about 2 minutes, the coffin starts to shake a little and it gives small moves to the sides.

    Florencia:....Yeah. They're fine. Let's get out before it gets too awkward.

    Chapter 179: Scars.

    At Damaon Castle, King Stewart and General Walpole are discussing while checking out some papers in the library of the castle.

    Stewart: Is that all?

    Walpole: Only the confirmed cases by Drakland. It's no big deal, but I fail to see if there is any strategy here. Various ships in various places all far away from each other. Drakland, Blitzreign, Neon, Gel....And apparently even the Dragon Vale. It's almost as if Raven decided to take over the world, but it's not like he is even trying.

    Stewart: Yeah. He can do better than that if he wanted to strike one place.

    Walpole: Well....there was a rather major incident a few days ago. A fleet of 15 ships in Gel....but all of them were decimated.

    Stewart: By who?

    Walpole: The Dark Witch of Gel.

    Stewart: Salomeh....

    Walpole: Ever since that incident in Gel, she has been working harder as of lately. Not only in Gel.

    Stewart:...You think that this might have been done by....purpose?

    Walpole: Considering how Raven thinks, probably.

    "General Walpole!"

    Shepherd appears carrying a file on her arms giving him a salutation pose.

    Shepherd: Ah! Your majesty! I wasn't expecting you here!

    Stewart: Don't mind me. Act professionally.

    Shepherd: O-Okay. I brought the reports of the Intelligence Department as you asked ordered.

    She hands over the files and Walpole analyzes it.

    Walpole:....Is this accurate?

    Stewart: What does it says?

    Walpole: I wanted the Intelligence to research the sudden rise in the tides and any major change around the world last month and...apparently where it was supossed to be the Lost Kingdom of Ra....is now gone.

    Shepherd: More gone than it was?

    Walpole: Yes...as if it was swallowed by the sea...but the surrounding islands seems intact. What could have done this?


    Stewart catches a blue book on the shelf titled Tales from Neptunia and opens in a chapter.


    Back at The Gloria, the ship just get on her way to the Black Demon Pirates Base island. On the captain's room, the coffin that was there opens releasing some sort of cold steam. Johnnathan gets out of it looking messy and he looked a bit tired.

    Johnnathan:....Bloody hell. At least give me time to prepare myself.


    Evelyne was at his side facing the opposite direction, resting with a happy face.

    Johnnathan:...It's about afternoon isn't it? Better let her rest.


    Johnnathan: Hmm?

    She opens her eyes and looks at him.

    Evelyne: Can you do me a small little favor?

    Johnnathan: As long as it is small and little, yes.

    Evelyne: Can you turn into a full vampire right now?

    Johnnathan: Yeah, sure. But for what reason?

    Evelyne: Well...I would like you to bite my neck.

    Johnnathan: Huh?

    Evelyne: Every vampire would love to have their beloved to bite their necks. I am no exception.

    Johnnathan: Is that so? I shouldn't be using my Dark Synchro when I don't need it, but I think a few seconds wouldn't hurt.

    He then activates his Dark Synchro and bites her neck from behind.

    Evelyne: Ah!...A bit more to the right...

    Johnnathan: Fine.*munch*

    Evelyne: Ah....That hit the spot...

    Johnnathan:....(Her blood is hot.)
    Later that night, Florencia and Vanilla were at the kitchen making some pasta for the noodles. Florencia looks at Vanilla and feels some sorrow on her eyes.

    Florencia: Vanilla?

    Vanilla: Yes?

    Florencia: Is there something you wanna talk about it?

    Vanilla: Actually I was thinking of asking you about something...

    Florencia: Is it about Edward?

    Vanilla: Yeah, you see-

    Florencia: Is he mistreating you somehow?

    Vanilla: Huh?

    Florencia: Because if he is, me and West will make sure he don't ever do it.

    She finishes by cutting the pasta with a strong swing of a knife.

    Vanilla: N-No! It's not what you are thinking. He is actually quite gentle. It's about his well-being.

    Florencia: Alright. I'm listening.

    Vanilla: You see...there is a lot of bandages covering his gut.

    Florencia: Is that it? Maybe it was from that time in Zhar.

    Vanilla: No. That scar was still there. It is nowhere near where Ohro slashed him.

    Florencia: When did you first noticed that?

    Vanilla: It was...when we slept together for the first time. I only got a clear look when I woke up before him.

    Florencia: And why don't you ask him?

    Vanilla: I-I don't sure. I mean...why didn't he ever told us about it? Sounds like something he would brag about it. I...I am afraid of being so pesty.

    Florencia:....Pfft. Hahahaha!

    Vanilla: What's so funny?

    Florencia: You are just like me.

    Vanilla: Huh?

    Florencia: I didn't told you about my first time with West didn't I? I was actually very nervous.

    Vanilla: You were?

    Florencia: You know how I can see through the people's heart? By gazing at their souls? Turns out I am best at looking at sad and wicked memories.

    Vanilla: Sad and wicked?

    Florencia: A fairy that lived a carefree and peaceful life are more adapted to see happy memories. Fairies that had it rough like me...not so much.

    Vanilla: Do you consider yourself like that?

    Florencia: I had a comfortable life, but not without concerns. You see, we all have secrets that we do not want to talk about it. Even from our most loved ones. Even now I struggle to not sense anything too personal inside West.

    Vanilla: Considering his background, he might have some secret no one wants to find about it.

    Florencia: But you see, I know West enough to see he is not as bad as he looks. In fact, I didn't saw anything from him on our first night. It was...very nice. Vanilla, do you trust Edward?

    Vanilla: Of course!

    Florencia: Then do not fear to ask him if he has any troubles. If anything, me and West can make he spit out for you.


    Florencia:....Since we are on topic, how good is he anyway?

    Vanilla:...I do not wanna talk about it.

    Florencia: West is pretty good.

    Vanilla: I said I do not wanna talk about it!

    After dinner, Vanilla decided to ask Edward about his gut. He sneaks inside the room he was located and he was changing his bandages around his waist sitting.

    Edward: Man, those are a pain to change.

    Vanilla:....Does it hurt?

    Edward: Kyaaaaa!

    He freaks out by Vanilla who was just close by him.

    Edward: Y-You scared me. I thought you were West or Flor.

    Vanilla: Why are you covering yourself with bandages? I don't remember you getting any wounds in there recently.

    Edward: Oh....Well...It's nothing, really?

    Vanilla: Really?

    Edward: Yeah.


    She then lays on one of the beds in the room and faces the opposite direction of Edward.

    Edward: You alright?

    Vanilla: Yeah. If you think it is nothing serious then I will trust you.

    Edward:....Take a look.

    He then sits on the other bed and removes the bandages and reveals his exposed abdome. It had a grim-looking burn mark on his right flank.

    Vanilla: Oh...Oh my! What and when was that?

    Edward: *sigh* It was when I was like 8 years old. It was from my mother.

    Vanilla: Your...own mother?

    Edward: My mother was...complicated. She was a soldier. An high officer actually. And she wanted that my sister and I would become some sort of monster soldiers that could destroy a whole army or whatever.

    Vanilla: That's rough.

    Edward: Yeah. My sister met her expectations, but I surely didn't it. One time I slacked off a little bit and...I want to believe it was an accident but she stabbed me with a spear covered in lightning. It burned like hell.

    Vanilla: Oh, Eddie....

    She starts to cry.

    Edward: Only my sister treated me like a family member. Dad didn't knew I existed and Mom never looked at me like Miilera. This scar always reminds me of that. I don't hide it because I think it's ugly....I hide ot because it's makes me ashamed at myself. Makes me feel...like a fail-

    Before he could finish his setence. Vanilla rushes to his arms and hugs him while shedding tears.

    Edward: V-Vanilla?

    Vanilla: I...I don't think you are a failure. I don't think you should feel any shame. The Edward I know and love...Is not like that. I seen you doing many things that were pure insanity in any way that no human being would try to do. You survived when many wouldn't survive. You gave me courage when I gave it up...

    She then faces him and pass her hand over his face.

    Vanilla: If you have any memories that you despise so much...then I will make sure you I will give you pleasant memories until you forget about them.

    She then kisses him with her face wet in tears. Edward then closes his eyes shedding tears holding her in his arms.

    Edward:....(Dear sister, it really pains me to say this but you were right after all. I really....did fall for this woman's spells.)

    While the two of them were having their tender moment, the rest of the crew were eavesdropping them at the behind the room's door on a small gap. Tenkai was eating a bowl of noodles.

    West:...*whisper*Should we leave?

    Florencia: Only a few more seconds.

    Tenkai: You guys are terrible.

    Evelyne: Come on, bite her neck.

    Johnnathan: Humans don't do that.

    Chapter 180: The South Pole.

    The Gloria was sailing at cold waters at night-time. Johnnathan had returned with his crew from his long vacation and had recently met with Heinrich just the other day. Heinrich gave Johnnathan the task to investigate the South Pole about the Neptune's Pearl while he took his own crew to go to Neptunia that is relatively close to the South Pole. Johnnathan was looking at the sea, observing the ice floating the ocean.

    Johnnathan: We're close....


    Edward appears with his nose dripping.

    Edward: Damnit.... Even Gel wasn't this cold...

    Johnnathan: I told you that you could stay inside if you wanted.

    Edward: Well...It is just that I never been at the South Pole before. I wanted to have a early peek.

    Johnnathan: Don't bother with it. It's just snow and snow everywhere. The Republic of the South Pole only covers less than 10 percent of the entire area.

    Edward: How is there a civilization around there anyway?

    Johnnathan: The Forsterians.

    Edward: Oh....How do they look like?

    Johnnathna: I wouldn't ruin the surprise.

    On the next day, the ship arrived on a port made of steel. They docked the ship and all the seven of them left the ship. Vanilla aready prepared a fire spell to make themselves warmer.

    West: So, this is the whole Republic?

    Florencia: No, it is only their port. The city stays a bit far away, just like in Gel.

    Edward: There are a few ships around. Is it safe to put ourselves like this in the open?

    Johnnathan: They will not harm us as long as we do not cause trouble....Speaking of which...

    A large penguin creature wearing a black shirt and a green cap approached them with some sort of folder.


    Johnnathan: Alright.

    Johnnathan signed a piece of paper and the penguin left.

    Edward:....What was that?

    Johnnathan: I was a contract to lent the dock.

    Edward: No...That big ass penguin.

    Florencia: You never been at the South Pole, right? That is a Forsterian. They are natives to this land. They can't speak any sort of know language, but you can get what they speak if you hang around enough.

    Johnnathan: Also, they are excellent swimmers and trackers. What is a struggle to a human here is a walk in the park to them.

    Vanilla: Teehee. They are so cute.

    Tenkai: So Eve-san...Where exactly did your brother messed around when you were here?

    Evelyne: Let's see...it was north of here. But after that...I don't think there is anything worth checking out.

    Johnnathan: So...how exactly should we start to get clues about a pearl and a giant mollusk?

    "So you're after the Kraken isn't it, my man?"


    They hear the sound of the strings of a guitar and encounters with Escobar. He then starts playing a calm tune.

    Escobar: Yo.

    Johnnathan: Hey, I remember you. And I am not your man...buddy.

    Evelyne: You know him?

    West: He was in Circa as one of the fighters.

    Evelyne: He...doesn't strike me as a fighter.

    Escobar: A vagabond like me can be anything he wants. The same applies as you...Vampire.

    Evelyne: Yikes! H-How did you-

    Escobar: Your heartbeats have an unusual tempo. A melody of calm beats, like the beggining of a jam session. Almost as if it's not alive.

    Vanilla: That was kind of rude.

    Escobar: I am not telling anyone so do not fear. I am a just a wandering musician after all.

    Johnnathan:...You look beat down. Something happened?

    Escobar: A lot of things happens everyday, so yeah. Something certainly happened.

    Johnnathan:...Alright, let's go guys.

    Escobar: Haha. Alright, alright. I'll tell ya. You see...Neptunia was destroyed.

    Florencia: Destroyed?

    Escobar: Yeah...The beast of the dephts, the Kraken. Ever since Raven disturbed the beast, the sea wasn't the same anymore. Just a few weeks ago...Neptunia itself was brought down by the terrible beast.

    Edward: Is it really that powerful? I heard Neptunia has one of the strongest armies in the world.

    Evelyne: Even Raven and Nightmare couldn't defeat it in a hour. Underwater isn't the speciality of a Rogue anyway.

    Johnnathan: Come to think of it, Coela is going there with the others. She will be shocked.

    Escobar: So you know Coela, huh? I helped her get her way back when I stumbled across her. Tough gal, took it down a Electric Eel Dragon.

    Johnnathan: Where you at Neptunia.

    Escobar: At the time, no. I haven't been in Neptunia for a long time. But still...those were the first waters I ever swimmed....My very first memories buried down by a beast that shouldn't have been awakened.

    Evelyne: I...I'm sorry.

    Escobar: Don't blame yourself over your family's actions. Anyway, most of the mermen have been taking refugee here. It's sad since right now, they are a people without a nation.

    Johnnathan: Do you know where we can find the Neptune's Pearl?

    Escobar: Heh! Ignoring what I just said it, huh? I guess I should expect such a heartless and selfless action from a pirate.

    Evelyne: How dare you!

    Johnnathan: Easy there, Eve. It's not like there is anything we can do about it.

    Escobar: Well...to find the Pearl you have to find the Kraken.

    Tenkai: I knew it wouldn't be that easy.

    Escobar: I can help you. Let me tag along with you guys for a little bit. I would be easier to show than tell you about.

    Johnnathan: Fine by me.

    They leave the port to the road to the Republic of the South Pole. Vanilla was nearby with the warm flames in hand.
    Escobar: That fire of yours is really handy.

    Vanilla: Thanks. I always look foward to being as useful as I can.

    Escobar: You really are wife material.

    Vanilla: W-Whaaaaat?!

    The fire got bigger and it became too hot.

    Edward: Hey! She is already taken, you hear!

    Escobar: Wow. Good for you. When's the marriage?

    Edward: Huh...How about-

    Vanilla: It is too soon for that sort of stuff!

    Evelyne:...Hey Johnny, are we married?

    Johnnathan:...I wanna talk about this later.

    West:...*whisper* Should we say something about this, Flor?

    Florencia: Better not. Unlike us, let those kids walk their pace.

    West: They are not that younger than us.

    Florencia: It's not about that.

    Soon they reach into a large city covered in white walls and surrounded by a white dome that was like some sort of force field. When they pass through the dome, the cold drops and becomes more warm.

    Vanilla: Hm? Is this...

    Florencia: A Weather Dome...I guess it shold be expected from a whole nation in this sort of place.

    Escobar: By the way, I forgot to mention. The Federation of the North Pole just came by. And High Chanceller Boris himself is here.

    Johnnathan: You mean the supreme ruler of the North Pole? Something big might be happening.

    Florencia: So we should be more careful. Certainly he brought a whole army along with him.

    Escobar: Also, two pirates appeared with their crews not that long ago. Captain Aradele and Captain Sander. They are not in the city anymore, I believe.

    Tenkai: Aren't those two in an alliance with another one?

    Florencia: You mean Bullrog...Could it be thay have the same aim as us?

    Escobar: By the way...see that dragon shaped ice mass over there?

    He points at what appears to be an sculpture of a dragon from afar.

    Edward: What about it?

    Escobar: That was actually a dragon once, but it died on the cold. Follow the road leading to it and you will find the Kraken's Lair.

    Johnnathan: Seems simple.

    Escobar: Yeah...it seems. Anyway, I'm off. Thanks for the ride.

    He goes into the city and leaves them.

    Johnnathan:...He is quite a nice guy. So Flor, any plans?

    Florencia: The road ahead seems dangerous. It's better if we got some supplies.

    Johnnathan: Yeah. I was thinking of that.

    The gang then enters the city as well. It was filled with iron buildings and machines. Forsterians were all over the place alongside humans and other beings.

    Vanilla: It kinda reminds me of home.

    Florencia: Alright, here is the deal. Me and the girls will shop for supplies. The rest try to find some information about this place. And try to not call too much attention.

    Johnnathan: You think there might be some clues about those two captains?

    Florencia: It's better to expect the worst outcomes. Anyway, we are off. Let's go girls.

    Vanilla: Roger!

    They leave the boys behind.

    West: I think we two could do this job the better, right Tenkai?

    Tenkai: Yeah. Our advanced senses may pick something. Johnny-san?

    Johnnathan: Do what you want.

    West: Well, this is it then. We reunited on that forge over there.

    The two then leaves. Edward then looks at the forge.

    Edward: Hmm...You know, I think I could get a better spear out of this. How about we check it out?

    Johnnathan: Personally, I have the..."guy" for this, but it wouldn't hurt.

    The two enter the forge and finds a vast collection of blades over the place.

    Edward: Wow. Check it out all this stuff. And it does not seems a lot of people work here.

    Johnnathan: And everything seems new.

    The two then notices a young man with spiky red hair striking his hammer into a rapier.

    Edward:...Excuse me?


    The young man answers without ever looking at them.

    Edward: We wanted your services...I guess?

    "Fine, fine. Just a second."

    He then keeps hammering the rapier for a minute as if he was still alone.

    Edward:...Are we ghosts?

    Johnnathan: You never saw a ghost before.

    The man finishes the job and finally looks at them.

    ???:....So, what is the deal?

    Edward: Well...I wanted you to sharpen my blade here.

    ???:...Only that? Whatever. As long as I get paid....Hmm?

    He then gave the spear a closer look.

    ???:....This...could it be...

    Edward: What?

    ???: Oh. Nothing. It just, I thought it might be something different than usual...*sigh* Even a watering can would be good these days.

    Edward:....Wait a minute...Do I know you?

    ???: You are not from here, aren't you? So you probably don't know me.

    Edward: Have you ever been at Eysideci?

    ???: What I would ever been doing there?

    Edward:....How about Gel?

    ???: Never been as well.

    Edward:...Are you Dafadel?

    ???: Ah! I-I don't know who is that.

    Edward:...Oh my gosh, you are Dafadel!

    Johnnathan: Who?

    Edward: Dafadel! You know, the Fencing Prodigy! He won many World Fencing Tournaments when he was young and never lost a fight ever since! A Miraculous Swordsman from Drakland! He was just as young as we are.

    ???: N-Nonsense! Why would Dafadel even be here?

    Johnnathan: Hmmm...

    Johnnathan unsheats his sword and strikes Dafadel, but he picked up his rapier and perfectly matched it Johnnathan.

    Edward: *gasp* That movement...It's really you, Dafadel!

    Dafadel:....Okay, you got me. I am Dafadel.

    Dafadel Crux.
    Age: 20.
    Epithet: Miraculous Swordsman.

    Dafadel:...But don't tell anyone!

    Default Re: Hybrid

    Chapter 181: Dafadel.

    On the streets, Florencia and the other girls were passing through looking for supplies. Evelyne was walking happily and humming with them.

    Vanilla: You look very cheerful, aren't you Eve?

    Evelyne: Sure! It feels nice being able to walk around people without scaring anyone.

    Vanilla: Oh yeah....The Mirage Ring isn't it? It's funny how you still look the same to me.

    Florencia: A magical tool that works based on the user's will. Ronan surpassed himself this time.

    Vanilla: Anyway, where is there a bakery around here? We should bring some bread and maybe some cheese...

    "You stealing dim-witted scumbag!"

    They notice a well-dressed lady with long brown hair with a huge chest yelling at a fish stand vendor.

    "One Piece of Gold for only this?! I demand a discount!"

    "But...It's a rare fish."

    "It barely serves two people!"

    Florencia: *sigh* Even in a place that is supossed to be remote, there is this kind of people.


    Evelyne looks at the woman with a curious look.

    Vanilla: Eve?

    Evelyne: I don't know why...But I feel like I know that woman.

    Back at the Forge where Edward and Johnnathan met Dafadel, he took they to the floor upstaits that was his home. He put more charcoal in the fireplace and the other two were sitting on a sofa.

    Johnnathan: Is it okay for us to be here?

    Dafadel: That's alright. I only have delivery jobs anyway.

    Edward: Wow! I can't believe it I am actually in the same house as Dafadel!

    Johnnathan: You really are enthusiastic about this, aren't you?

    Edward: Of course I am! I am surprised you never heard of Dafadel. He even was able to beat the grown-ups when he was just a kid.

    Johnnathan: Big deal.

    Edward: Damn, look at a human point of view. You are still half-human.

    Johnnathan:...Sorry for raining on your parade then. Hey, Dafadel.

    Dafadel: Yeah?

    Johnnathan: Would you kindly remove that ring on your left hand.

    Dafadel: Ah! Sorry, but...

    Johnnathan: It's okay buddy. See? I have the same eye.

    Edward: Eh?

    Johnnathan: And this idiot knows already about us.

    Dafadel: Huh...I see.

    He removes a ring that was on his left hand and his left eye crimsom.

    Edward: Your eye....Are you a freaking Hybrid!

    Dafadel: Yeah....But don't tell anyone.

    Edward: Wow...suddenly things done a full turn of events for me. So in other words you were cheating all this time.

    Dafadel: No way! I never used Darkness during my matches.

    Johnnathan: You still have more strenght and reflexes than the avarage kid. But it's still not that easy to beat a well-trained adult, I'll give you that. But why is a Fencing Champion like you being a blacksmith in a place like this?

    Dafadel: Well...4 years ago, things happened in Blightland.

    Johnnathan: That place south of Damaon. You're from there?

    Dafadel: Yes. I was the son of the Crux House, a noble lineage in Drakland.

    Johnnathan: Was?

    Dafadel: My father, Lord Crux, died in an incident...alongside the whole house.

    Edward: Oh yeah...I heard about it. Blightland was raided by Raven 4 years ago once. So you were involved.

    Johnnathan: That must be tough.

    Dafadel: No. Not at all. My life there wasn't exactly good.

    Johnnathan: How so?

    Dafadel: You see...My mother wasn't exactly her wife. She was a maid working in the house.

    Johnnathan: That means you were...

    Edward:...A bastard child!


    Johnnathan slaps Edward in the backhead.

    Johnnathan: Watch your tongue.

    Dafadel: Because of that we were seen indiscriminately even without they knowing about our Hybrid lineage. I decided to compete in fencing competitions so that we could be accepted.

    Edward: Somehow I get the feeling.

    Dafadel: My father was proud to have a son better than most of people, but my older siblings and their mother didn't it. In fact they were jealous. So jealous that they killed her and made it looking like it was an accident.

    Johnnathan: Noble bastards....They had to play something dirty to kill a Hybrid.

    Dafadel: Yep. Took like a chandelier with very sharp blades to kill her. Seems like it was designed for that sort of stuff.

    Edward: Damn....

    Dafadel: Good thing neither of them were courageous enough to get near me. And then one day he appeared.

    Johnnathan: Raven?

    Dafadel: No. It was two of his brothers. Chill and Noir. Chill ate my half-siblings and Noir killed my father and his wife. When I ran away, I had a feeling they let me walk away.

    Johnnathan: That was strangely descriptive.

    Edward: And you are here on the South Pole because....

    Dafadel: I...have a cousin here. We are living together.

    Edward: That's quite a tale. So, will you really look after my spear.

    Dafedel: Yeah, yeah. I will finish in a minute. By the way what are you guys?

    Edward: Oh. We are pirates.

    Dafadel: Pirates, huh?


    Edward: Yeah, this guy here is the captain. He is Johnnathan Highlander, The Red Beast.

    Dafadel: I see....

    Edward: Yeah, and our crew has-


    Dafadel thrusted a rapier at Edward, but Johnnathan deflected with his sword.

    Edward: Gah!

    Dafadel: Impressive. The timing was just too damn perfect. Almost like you felt it coming.

    Johnnathan: That was the reason, yes.

    Edward: W-What is going on?

    Dafadel: I can't let you leave it like that, villains!

    Dafadel covers his rapier with darkness and start to deliver numerous thrusts at Johnnathan, but Johnnathan see through his attacks and dodges it.


    A wound appears on Johnnathan's cheek.

    Dafadel: You aren't really that big of a deal.

    Edward: Wait! We do not mean harm, I swear!

    Dafadel: Maybe not today, but what about tomorrow...of after tomorrow? I wouldn't let you scoundrels get away!

    He delivers a swing at Johnnathan. He ducks and he cuts an iron shield hanging on the wall.

    Edward: Oh boy...Shouldn't had leaved my spear down there.

    Johnnathan: Do you really wanna do this?

    Dafadel: You know people like us are not cowards.

    Johnnathan: True.

    He picks his flintlock and shoots at him, but he blocks with his rapier, defending himself from the blasts.

    Johnnathan: Alright, let's try this. Red Spiral!

    He delivers a Red Spiral that Dafadel dodges it and makes a hole on the wall.

    Edward: Easy there, Johnny. It's Dafadel's house.

    Dafadel: Nice trick, but I prefer mine. Dark Thrust!

    He delivers a thrust that flies like a missile and makes a hole on another wall because Johnnathan also dodges it.

    Johnnathan: Wow. What a knock-off.

    At the market, Florencia and the other two were buying bread and milk on a stand in front of the fish stand where they saw the lady. While Florencia was picking up the bag, Evelyne was still checking on the woman at the other side.

    Evelyne: I can't help it...I swear I seen her once. That face...The bust size...

    "50 Silver Pieces! That's more than enough!"

    "Lady, if you leave that fish behind, it will be pretty much this value."

    "How can one fish be worthy more than twice than this!"

    Evelyne: And that attitude....


    A bunch of Forsterians dressed like soldiers grouped together and started to talk.

    "Kweeek Kwek kwek Kwek Kwek kweeeek"

    Vanilla: What are they yelling at each other?

    Florencia: Well, my Forsterianese is a bit lacking, but...It seems it involves a Forge and...purple stuff coming out if the house...

    Evelyne: Wait...You don't mean...


    The woman picks her shopping bag and gives the shopskeeper a piece of gold.

    "Here you less than deserved money, you vermin!"

    She then runs towards the forge house.

    Evelyne: Ah! Wait!

    She then runs after her.

    Florencia: Eve!

    Back at Dafadel's house, Dafadel was pursuing Johnnathan in the room and slashing through the furniture and the walls, cutting them as if he was using a scythe. Edward was hiding behind the sofa.

    Edward: Dafadel! You are destroying your own house!

    Dafadel: Die, pirate!

    He keeps swinging his sword around and manages to give Johnnathan a few slashes.

    Johnnathan: Know what? I'm done!

    He activates his Dark Synchro and with a single swing with his swords he sends his rapier upwards.

    Dafadel: Ah!

    Johnnathan then places both his blades around Dafadel's neck like a scissor.

    Johnnathan: You lose.

    Dafadel: Tsk. I warning you. If you kill me, another monster will take you on.

    Johnnathan: I don't care about taking your life. I just want you to-


    A woman burst through the door and catches Johnnathan from behind.

    Johnnathan: What the?

    She then bends her body and delivers a suplex on Johnnathan.

    Johnnathan: Oof!

    ???: You damn ruffian! What are you doing with my dear Dafadel!

    Edward: Woah! Is that his wife. As expected from him.

    Dafadel: Watch it, Granny! He is a Hybrid and a Pirate!

    Johnnathan: Ugh...Granny?


    Evelyne then appears, following the woman from the market.

    Vanessa: Huh? How do you-

    Evelyne: It's....It's really you? Vanessa Piemont?

    She then removes her ring, revealing her real form.

    Vanessa: Ah! A rogue!....Wait...Eve?

    Then Vanessa removes one of her rings and both her eyes turn red.

    Johnnathan: What the? You are...

    Evelyne: Oh my....

    Evelyne then starts to cry.

    Evelyne: I thought....You died....I thought....We....I killed you....

    Vanessa: I wasn't there when it happened.

    Evelyne: Even so.....I....I'm sorry! Waaaaaaah!

    She then gets on her knees and cries.

    Johnnathan: What in the bloody hell is going on?

    "Eve! Are you....huh?"

    Florencia alongside Vanilla appears.

    Florencia: You...are a rogue?

    Vanessa:....No. I am indeed a vampire...but an Old one.

    Vanessa Piemont.
    Race: Vampire(Old)
    Age: 800
    Rank: Higher.

    Vanessa: Dafadel...

    Dafadel: Yeah?

    Vanessa: What the hell happened here?

    Dafadel: Well, it's....

    Edward: Uuuuh...He started it.

    Vanessa:...I'll deal with those later.

    She then approaches Evelyne and passes her hand around her face.

    Vanessa: Oh my...You are already turned into a fine lady.

    Evelyne: *sniff*....

    Vanessa: It has been a while, hasn't it?

    Evelyne: *sniff*....Waaaaaah!

    She then cries over her chest and Vanessa passes her arms around her head.

    Johnnathan:...So, why did you called her granny?

    Dafadel: Well....I guess it's no use hiding it. She is my Grandmother.

    Default Re: Hybrid

    Chapter 182: Vanessa.

    Out in the streets, West and Tenkai were walking alongside each other with some disturbed faces.

    Tenkai:....So, that North Pole's Official, huh?

    West: I gotta admit, the resemblance is uncanny...Hmmm?

    West notices the forge that they were supossed to reunite and notice a few holes above it.

    Tenkai:...Was that building in that state?

    West: No.

    The two then heads out to the forge. Upstairs, Evelyne was recovering from the emotional shock still shedding tears.


    Vanessa: That's right.There, there...

    Johnnathan: So, what is the relationship between you two?

    Evelyne: Oh...*sniff*...She was my caretaker when I was young.

    Vanessa: That was right after the Werewolf Massacre. I took care of her for a year.

    Johnnathan: I thought Topazia looked after you after that.

    Vanessa: She was very busy at the time. By the time I left, she was big enough to take care of herself.

    Vanilla: Still, to know there are still Old Vampires around is incredible.

    Florencia: Is there any others?

    Vanessa: I would say unlikely.

    Johnnathan: So...are we cool with your grandson?

    Vanessa: Yes. Definetly. Sorry about his behavior. He is...too much overprotective.

    Dafadel: Sorry, I just don't wanna be raided by pirates.

    She then picks his ear and twists it.

    Dafadel: Ouchouchouchouch!

    Johnnathan: Hehehehe...My mom used to do that a lot.

    Then West and Tenkai appears from downstairs.

    West: Hey guys, what's going on h....Vampire! Grrrrrr!!!

    Vanessa:...Werewolf! Shaaaaa!

    West turned into a werewolf and Vanessa's eyes started to glow and they were making noises at each other like cats and dogs.

    Florencia and Dafadel: Stop!

    The two of them hits their heads making it them stop being aggresive.

    Vanessa and West: Uuugh....

    Florencia: Dont go make more uproar than we already done it.

    Tenkai: Speaking of which, some Forsterians are outside wanting answers.

    Dafadel: Oh! I'll be right there.

    He goes downstairs and talk to the guards. He apologizes saying it was an accident involving some explosives. He received a notification ticket of 300 silver pieces for disorder. He then goes back up.

    Dafadel: *siiiigh* I managed to drive them off, but now we have to pay 30 pieces of silver now.

    Florencia: Don't worry. We help pay.

    Johnnathan: We do?

    Florencia: Johnny!

    Johnnathan: Fiiiine.

    Vanessa: Dafadel. Please go make some cocoa for them.

    Dafadel: Fiiiine.

    Florencia: They are so similar...

    The rest of them picks whatever left to have a seat.

    Vanessa: So Eve....Who exactly are those people? I can see already they are not from your brother's gang.

    Evelyne: Yeah, I left them. This is here is Johnnathan. He is my boyfriend.

    Vanessa: Oh...Oh! Congratulations!

    She then hugs Evelyne tightly.

    Vanessa: I knew you would find someone! And let me tell you, he is an A-Grade material.

    Evelyne: T-Thanks.

    Vanessa: So, you are a pirate?

    Johnnathan: Yeah...do you have a problem as well?

    Vanessa: No big deal. I am a vampire hiding from everyone here anyway. I've been doing this for quite a long time. But Dafadel....Well, he has a certain grudge against pirates.

    Edward: Because of Raven?

    Vanessa: No. Because a certain group of pirates once harassed me long ago.

    Florencia: Was that really a problem for you?

    Vanessa: As much as I wanted to rip out their balls myself, I couldn't make a scene. Also, Dafadel gave it a lesson on them anyway.

    Evelyne: So Vanessa...What have you been doing? How are you still alive?

    Vanessa:...From time to time, I would check on my daughter. Back on that night, it was one of those times. When I returned, Hollowgrounds was already a ghost city.

    Vanilla: You had a daughter, but you were still in Hollowgrounds?

    Vanessa:...Yeah. Her father was one of the Hunters there. Back in the days, they would let a high-ranking vampire to watch over a large number of them instead of sentinels. We once escaped together from Hollowgrounds, but....

    Johnnathan: But?

    Vanessa: One time, a Werewolf ambushed us when we were still on the road and killed him.

    Evelyne: Oh my.

    Vanessa: I also killed the son of a bitch that day. I am hanging his head on top of the fireplace by the way.

    She points at a wolf's head hanging on the wall. West watches it disturbed. Dafadel then delivers each of them a cup of cocoa.

    Florencia: Don't think about it, dear. He killed her husband.

    West: Okay.

    He punches his chest two times and gives the victory signal to the wolf. Dafadel then hands Vanessa a bottle of his own blood.

    Vanessa: I was already pregnant at the time. I hid in a village in Blitzreign for 6 months. When I had my daughter, Sophia, I didn't knew what to do at the time. Without by beloved, I was lost. So I did it whatever any lost mother would do.

    Johnnathan: Put her in a basket and drop her at the front of an orphanage?

    Vanessa: Eh? No. I just sneaked into someone's else house and put her inside while they were sleeping.

    Everyone spits their hot cocoa.

    Florencia: I-Isn't that like illegal?

    Vanessa: Easy there. I made sure they were nice people, okay?

    Johnnathan: Wait, wasn't your daughter in Drakland? What was she doing in Blitzreign.

    Vanessa: It didn't took so long until those people realized she was not human. They kept guard of her, but didn't get too close to her. When she was a little big, I decided to meet her.

    Johnnathan: You didn't told her that you were her mother, right?

    Vanessa: Yes. I merely told her what she was. At the time, I already had a Mirage Ring with me. I took it from a spellcaster from Gel that I killed recently at the time.

    Gel: Eeep! You don't need to say that so casually.

    Vanessa: I "offered" to her "parents" that I would look after her, but I just wanted to put her somewhere where she could live a normal human life. A place that no one would know about her. I then decided to take her to Blightland.

    Edward: Why there exactly?

    Vanessa: I wanted to leave her as far from Hollowgrounds as possible. Blitzreign was a strong wall against Hollowgrounds. We travelled for about a month and we finally arrived in Blightland. There I gave her another Mirage Ring. The same one Dafadel is using apparently.

    Johnnathan: Where did you leave her exactly?

    Vanessa: I found a place that would be happy to have her. She was tough, so she could do pretty much any work they could give her...But...

    Johnnathan: Oh boy, another "but", what now?

    Vanessa:....*sigh* The place I put her happened to be a brothel. When she growed up, she turned into a prostitute.

    Johnnathan:...You are the worst mother that I ever met.

    Evelyne: Johnny!

    Johnnathan: It's true.

    Evelyne: Forgive him. He...likes to say what he thinks.

    Vanessa:....No. I think he is right. Come to think about it...when I took her from her "parents"...they do seemed sad about letting her go. But they certainly knew it was for the best.

    Evelyne: Still, don't be so hard on yourself.

    Vanessa: You are so sweet and innocent, just like your mother.

    Johnnathan: *cough*Not really*cough*

    Vanessa: Anyway, it was when she was at the streets at night that a nobleman saw her and it was love at first sight. That noble was Dafadel's father. She truly loved Sophie and they became lovers. In that relationship, she soon became pregnant.

    Johnnathan: Still, very messed up.

    Edward: That happens more than you think.

    Vanessa: Sophie then joined his house by turning into a servant. I believe the rest of the story, my grandson told you all about it. Anyway, 10 years ago...you know what happened. I guess I was really lucky to have a family to look after it.

    Evelyne: You really seemed to have a lot of freedom.

    Vanessa: Higher Vampires like me aren't really supervisioned. And things got easier ever since Diamanta returned after the Last Crusade. By the way, Sophie...later died the worst way possible...I really wanted to do something about it, but I was impotent. Then 4 years ago, I met Dafadel on the run after his family got slaughtered. At the time I was around Blightland preying on few people. I encountered him and explained the whole situation. I decided to take hime to a place that was safe from Raven...So I thought on the Republic of the South Pole and we have been living relatively easy.

    Evelyne: Wow...I never knew you were living like that...To think that you could have been dead beacuse of...me and the others.

    Vanessa: Eve...I know your brother was the real mastermind that day. I know what sort of person you are. I loved the year we spend together...It felt like that I got a second chance of being a mother.

    Evelyne:...I feel like...Sophie would forgive you.

    Vanessa:...As always, I can't even believe you were a vampire like me.

    Johnnathan: And what do you think about this Dafadel?

    Dafadel:....She did the best she could. At least she is with me now.

    Vanessa: Your mother would be proud of you...By the Johnnathan, who was your mother?
    Johnnathan: My mother? It was Ruby Scarlet.

    Vanessa: I see, Ruby...SCARLET?!

    She freaks out by hearing that name.

    Dafadel: What? Grannie, you know her?

    Vanessa: Y-Yeah. You see...I once was a Red Sword, just like her. We were on the same group at one point. She was the 7th sword and I was the 3rd Sword.

    Johnnathan: The same squad?

    Vanessa: Yeah...no wonder I never heard about her anymore. What kind of man did she hook it up with?

    Johnnathan: My father's name was Alex Highlander. And I also have a older brother named Heinrich that happens to be the Black Demon.

    Vanessa: Wha-Whaaaaat?! The Angel of Death?! And she had two kids and the Black Demon is your brother?! Damn I always knew she was into dangerous people...Wait....Oh...Oooooooh...Fufufufu...Hohoho hoho!

    She starts to laugh with a prideful tone.

    Vanessa: So that is how it is, huh? Well, it was no coincidence that Dafadel would clash swords with you.

    She then assumes a prideful and arrogant stance.

    Vanessa: For you see my dear Johnny I...Was your mother's sworn rival!

    Dafadel: Her sworn...

    Johnnathan: Rival?

    Vanessa: Yes. When we first joined we were like the two arms of Lady Diamanta. Fufufufu...so nostalgic. We were comrades-in-arms, but from deep inside we were our worst enemy.

    Johnnathan: What kind of relationship did you two had?

    Vanessa: When in battle, we always would protect each other...because we cannot afford to lose to anyone but ourselves. Heehehehe, we always fought after a campaign. Out of 1000 matches we both won 500 each.

    Johnnathan: I don't remember my mother talking about you?

    Vanessa: It's understandable. You see, actually she only had 499 wins. I don't think she would reveal such a fact to her offspring.

    Johnnathan: What exactly happened?

    Vanessa: It was about our last feud. Well..it was when I left the Red Swords. You see when a new member is chosen and there is already 10, 2 of us must fight against each other to open a space.

    Johnnathan: That's stupid. Why don't make the newbie fight against the veteran.

    Vanessa: It's just how Lady Diamanta used to make us work harder for our positions. We could always try later. But it wasn't a normal fight you see. It was done by Vampire Grappling.

    Johnnathan: Vampire Grappling? What is that?

    Evelyne: Oh. It's when 2 vampires must fight unarmed and wrestle against each other. The winner is the one who can break the most joints and bones from the opponent in 1 minute or make them unable to fight. It's pretty much a ceremonial event for the Red Swords.

    Tenkai:...I wonder if the kitsunes have something similar.

    Johnnathan: And my mother and you were chosen?

    Vanessa: The custom was to make the two best of us to do it, so it was natural.

    Johnnathan: And my mother wrestled against you and won?

    Vanessa: It was an intense fight alright, but unfortunately for me it was my loss. Heh. That bitch actually broke my back with one move that made me pass out for five seconds after 40 seconds the fight started. And then she received her 500th win.

    West: Damn. The more I hear about Johnny's mother, the more I like her.

    Johnnathan: I can't see my mother breaking other people's back...But I also find that kinda of possible.

    Vanessa: And after being humiliated, my glory shattered and had my pride stripped away from me, I went back at my life of being just a Higher Vampire. But it was about that time I met my lover, Enzio. So I guess I am glad for having my ass kicked...So what about her?

    Johnnathan: She is dead. Vampires found her and she fought back to protect my existence.

    Vanessa: I see...I guess I can't really have my revenge then...But! There is our 1001th fight that I won against her!

    Johnnathan: Really? What?

    Vanessa: Heeehehehe....The victory I have against her....

    She then proudly hits her chest with her palm.

    Vanessa: Is that her chest could never beat mine!


    Johnnathan: Is that really something to compare to the other fights?

    Evelyne: Well, it's a big deal for vampires.

    Side Chapter: Jester.


    A month after the attack on Gel and things have been recovering smoothly. The Academy returned to work shortly after and things got busy as usual. Salomeh gave most of her than ever before and things got more agitated ever since. One day, Petit went to the Mission Hall to find some job. He has been rather rusty as of late. He went to the reception desk to find a task from the receptionist.

    Petit: Excuse me. Is there any Diamond-Level Mission available?

    "Bold as always, isn't it Petit? Anyways no luck for you. All the Diamond Missions have been taken by Salomeh herself."

    Petit: Reaaally? Well then, give me Gold.

    "Sorry. All of the Gold Missions were taken as well."

    Petit: Hey, hey, hold on. I was the first in my class. These missions were supossed to be kept for me.

    "You aren't the only First Place around it. With all the demand with Rogues, even teachers are putting the hand on the pasta."

    Petit: Why is that?

    "It is for your own safety, okay? We have a ton of Silver Missions if you are interested."

    Petit: Silver? That's so second place material.

    "Well, then take a break. A lot of other hard-workers would be pleased to win a few Silver Pieces."

    Petit:...I'll be around a little bit.

    He then leaves and walks a bit disappointed.

    Petit:....*sigh* Sure even 5 Pieces of Silver would be enough to pay my lunch, but I need to think about other costs. Sure the Academy pays some minor expenses, but still....

    He then see Salomeh, wearing casual clothes surrounded by young students, greeting them happily.

    "Professor, I heard you been teaching Dark Magic to Cole."

    Petit: Hmm?!

    "Didn't you said that we should touch those or else we turn into vampires?"

    Salomeh: Yeah, but Cole isn't human. He is a Werewolf.

    "Oh! Almost forgot that."

    "Naaaaaa...It sucks to think we never gonna be as cool as you."

    Salomeh: Now, now. Each spellcaster is good on their own way. There are a lot of things that I cannot do. For example, I can't summon a swarm of bees like Honny.

    "Oh! Speaking of which, I learned how to summon a big frog. Wanna see it?"

    Salomeh: I would love it...Hmm?

    She notices Petit nearby and calls him.

    Salomeh: Oh, Petit! Excuse me children...

    She leaves them and goes to Petit.

    Salomeh: So, what is the best student of my favourite's class doing it? I bet you are making quite the hit.

    Petit: Actually, I haven't been doing very much these past days.

    Salomeh: Really? Last time I checked, there were several Silver Missions. Are you slacking off?

    Petit: O-Of course not!


    Petit: Yeah?

    Salomeh: Just because he was a pirate, it does not means he is a bad person. Accept that Vanilla got with a better man.

    Petit: Urgh! I didn't needed that.

    Salomeh: Hit on the mark didn't I?

    Petit: Okay, maybe I am a bit foggy-minded because of all that stuff with Vanilla, but there is also all that stuff from last month...Speaking of which, any words about the order?

    Salomeh: I heard some things about it....Ever since that day, several important people from Neon suddenly disappeared...and some of them were found...dead.

    Petit: Is it the Rogues?

    Salomeh: It seemed Raven knew about them. Also this is a bit of top-secret, but....similar cases started to appear in Drakland and Blitzreign.

    Petit: I would prefer not hearing those...What about the twins?

    Salomeh: They gone with Cinna in a misson. A Gold Mission.

    Petit: Are you kidding me?

    Salomeh: Those two have been on a roll after last month. Anyway, they say you are an inspiration to them.

    Petit: I am?

    Salomeh: I wouldn't expect, but as long you cheer them up, it is good enough.

    Petit: I see. What about you?

    Salomeh: Me? Just passing by. I have to organize my schedule later on since I skipped many classes.

    Petit: Sounds tough....Speaking of which, I guess I'll be skipping this day...again. I need to cool my head.

    Salomeh: No job is too big, but no job is too small either. Just think that.

    Petit: Fine...By the way, don't you feel that Vanilla may...you know...

    Salomeh: She is a smart girl. She wouldn't make a mistake like that.

    Petit: Gosh. You are so direct.

    He then leaves the Academy and walks around the cold streets of Gel. He wanders around with his head low and his hands on the pockets of his hood like a lost man in the cold road of loneliness.


    He then rest his shoulders on a pole.

    Petit: Just what am I doing with my life?

    He kicks the ground a little bit.

    Petit:...Maybe the answer is right next to me.

    "That's a nice quote."

    He perceives Honny standing right next to him.

    Petit:...How long have you been there.

    Honny: Just after you stopped walking and standed there like a hopeless and miserable person. It seemed like you needed a little cheering so I wanted to invite you to eat some sweets again.

    Petit:...I'll pass today. My expenses have been a bit too high.

    Honny: Huh? Is that the reason? Come on! You can earn money any time you want! Let's eat cake.

    Petit: I am not in the mood for cake honstly.

    Honny: You're gonna spend time with me, man and we are gonna eat cake together!

    Petit: Fine, geez!

    They go to a cafe called Caramel Apple and they sit on a table. Honny orders a caramel cake and Petit orders a cookie cake.

    Honny: Heehehehe...

    Petit: What's so funny?

    Honny: We've been coming here very often lately don't we? I wonder if the people here thinks we are dating.

    Petit: That isn't funny.

    Honny: Gosh! You are a mood kill today. Look, I'll pay your treat, so no need to be grump.

    Petit:....So, what have you been doing lately?

    Honny: Yeah, about that...I am returning to Ceranze tomorrow.

    Petit: Really? Why?

    Honny: I'll be starting teaching the children in there. I sent some applications to the Academy for some people interested in teaching, but no luck ever since....*sigh* Well, it is not a lot of kids anyway...I hope.

    Petit: What is the rank of the job?

    Honny: Silver. It's more of a high Copper Mission, but Salomeh did manipulate the strings a little bit. That poor woman has been working non-stop.

    Petit:...(And what have I been doing?)

    Honny: Said something?

    Petit: Nothing.

    Honny: By the way Petit, if you have money problems, why don't you ask your parents for help? You are not that old to ask for an allowance.

    Petit:...My parents are pretty poor. They live on a small village a few kilometers from the city.

    Honny: Oh....I didn't knew that.

    Petit: From time to time I send a little money to them...And when I say little, I mean most of it. That Prize Money back in Circa would surely help.

    Honny: I...never knew you had that side of yours.

    Petit: I jsut wanted to show a good image of myself. That's all.

    Honny: Image, huh? You know....Me, Vanilla and Cinna always saw you as a self-centered annoying dork.

    Petit: Uuuurhh! Not again.

    Honny: But...I particulary, always found you adorable as well.


    Honny: Teehee.

    She put out a some bills on the table and leaves.

    Honny: Keep the change, okay?

    Petit:....She is actually pretty cute.

    After a while he leaves the cafe and looks into the sky. There was a large white cloud covering it and showering snows over the city.


    "What do you expect to see up there? A bird?"

    He notices a Steel Beetle right next to him.

    Petit: W-Wrat?! I mean...you are Wrat, correct? You beetles kinda look the same.

    Wrat: Yeah, yeah. Just passing by for a check in the city. See ya.


    Wrat: What?

    Petit:...I...I was thinking of going to Ceranze because of a woman....What do you think about it?

    Wrat: Haha. I don't care.

    He then flies back to Fairyland without saying anything else.

    Petit:....Something tells me we are not friends.

    Back at the Mission Hall, Petit appears again and pulls a mission paper hanging on a wall. He delivers it to the receptionist. The most visible word in the paper was Ceranze. The reward was 50 Pieces of Silver per month.

    Petit:...I would like this one.

    "....Job Accepted."

    Chapter 183: Sunken.

    Far from South Pole, somewhere in the cold waters, The Vitoria was stranded in the middle of the ocean with only Shadewing on the ship, on guard duty. Under the sea, Coela and a small submarine containing Nikolai, Heinrich and Aladdin were heading towards deeper into the ocean.

    Nikolai: What do you guys think? I call it The NikSub.

    Aladdin: You suck at picking names you know that?

    Nikolai: I don't often remembers name if my own creations anyway. But the sound they make when blast someone's head.

    Heinrich: Yo! Coela! Are we too far off.

    Heinrich speaks throug a microphone in the submarine.


    Heinrich: Er...Is this thing busted?

    Coela: That's weird.

    Heinrich: Hmm...Oh. I can actually hear you.

    Coela: Neptunia...It was supossed to be in sights already...

    She then swims faster and faster.

    Nikolai: H-Hey! Slow down a bit there girl!

    The submarine then follows her and arrives on a sunken ruin. The destruction was relatively recent and it was more made of tall building with over 30 floors above each others and torns aparts.

    Aladdin: Is this Neptunia?

    Nikolai: This is curious...Don't only Neptunia had a powerful army unmatched underwater...but there was a dome around the city made it to last. Whatever managed to break that.

    They spot Coela standing at one point looking arounf the city and manages to get closer to her.

    Heinrich: Coela?

    Coela: I...I don't get it...The cafe I always went was right there....And my mother's house was also right there...And...What is this place?

    She then notices a small girl buried at some rocks.

    Coela: Ah!

    She rushes to her and removes all of the heavy stuff over her body. She then picks her and holds in her arms.

    Coela: Hey! Wake up! What happened?!


    Coela:....Henry! Let's return to the ship! Maybe we could save her with Shadewing's help!

    Nikolai: Coela...

    Coela: What?

    Nikolai:...No matter how you can see it...This girl is dead.

    Coela: Huh?

    She then looks at her and see her eyes still a bit open.


    She closes them and releases her. Her body then rises to the surface.

    Heinrich: Let's return.

    The 4 of them returns to Vitoria. Shadewing and Jayce were there.

    Shadewing:...You lot returned here faster than I thought.

    Nikolai: There wasn't much in there.


    Shadewing: Coela.

    Coela: Everything....Everyone is dead...

    Nikolai: Don't bother it. I'm pretty sure a lot of them got out safely.

    Coela: Even so...It was my motherland...To think...To think that...*sob*

    She gets on her knees and cries.

    Heinrich:....Hey, come on now.

    Heinrich passes her hands around her shoulder and comforts her.

    Heinrich: I know how is to lose something, specially if you left behind. Reminds me, how old were you when we first met?

    Coela: *sniff* Fourteen.

    Nikolai: Young.

    Heinrich: About the same time I left home...Until now, you have been a nice moral support for us. So smile a little bit.

    Coela: *sniff* O-Okay.

    She tries to smile, but still sheds tears.

    Nikolai: Soooo...What is the plan?

    Heinrich:....Let's try to contact Johnny.

    Back at the South Pole, Edward, West and Tenkai returned in their scout mission while Florencia and Vanilla went to find more supplies. Johnnathan and Dafadel were fixing the walls by hammering iron slabs over it.

    Johnnathan: Why am I doing this?

    Evelyne: It wasn't me who put a hole in the wall.

    Dafadel: Actually, I don't remember if this hole was the one I made it.

    Vanessa: Regardless you are the one who started Dafadel.

    Dafadel: *grumble*

    Johnnathan: Who would thought that me, A Gold-Ranked Pirate being forced to this kind of shit. Next time, they gonna have me pay for all the ships I blasted.

    Vanessa: This son of Ruby is pretty reliable. You scored big time Evelyne.

    Evelyne: And all I needed was to sneak home before the sunset.

    Vanessa: Also, you became prettier than your mother...I wish Lady Ametista could see you right now.

    Evelyne:...By the way Vanessa...Johnny's Mother...What kind of woman was she?

    Johnnathan: Didn't I told about her already?

    Evelyne: Yeah...But I wanna know about the one who was a Red Sword.

    Johnnathan: I never got into those sort of details as well.

    Vanessa: Well then, I'll try to summarize a little bit. Ruby was always Diamanta's favourite. Even before she was a Red Sword. It was no surprise she would turn into one in the future. At the time she was know as the Ace of Hearts.

    Johnnathan: I never thought she was that popular.

    Vanessa: Everyone was a bit jealous of her because of her relationship with Diamanta. Including me. The reason why I turned into a Red Sword was teach that twerp a lesson. But at the end she was the one who put me in my place.

    Dafadel: Why do you sound like you are proud of the fact.

    Vanessa: Our rivalry was very friendly. Turns out her brother was a old acquaitance of mine. Henirich Scarlet.

    Evelyne: Heinrich? Isn't that the name of your brother, Johnnathan?

    Johnnathan: Mom once mentioned she naming him after her late brother.

    Vanessa: Yeah, he was a Higher Vampire at the time while she was a Middle one. After his death, Ruby finally showed her fangs and worked to become a Red Sword to recover her status.

    Johnnathan: Mind telling me a little about the uncle I never met.

    Vanessa:....He was the worst.

    Evelyne: Eh?

    Vanessa: He was actually a damn pervert that annoyed all of the women with his flirty behavior. Me included. I lost track of the number of times I slapped his face of the times I caught him peeping on me.

    Johnnathan:...Gosh. Reminds me of a certain someone.

    Vanessa: Now it is your turn Johnnathan. How did your parents meet? How the Ace of Hearts hooked up with the Red Demon is an interesting story.

    Johnnathan:...They met by trying to kill each other.

    Vanessa: Come again?

    Johnnathan: Ceranze, 5th Crusade. My mother attacked my father and both of them wanted to slice each other throats. Then they laughed like maniacs, got tired of all that stuff and just decided to make out. At least that's how I interpreted when I asked my dad about it.




    Johnnathan: I asked my father is he truly loved my mom. He answered with, and I quote: "If I had you two rascals with her then it is pretty obvious, isn't it?"

    Vanessa: Huh. I guess love really works weird most of the time. It also come naturally to me. Even though I was looking over a dozens of Hunters, I always had more eyes for Enzio.

    Evelyne: Still...It was not as romantic as always thought.-__-

    Dafadel: Yeah. It has not the beggining and middle it usually have I guess.

    Johnnathan: But you know what? I don't feel like the Ruby that you knew was really the same one as my mother...for most of the part.

    Evelyne: I wish I could meet her.

    Vanessa: She would love to have meet you.

    Meanwhile on a underground tavern made of steel, several shady figures were attending as regulars. In one of the tables, some of these people were talking about the current events.

    "So, what about Aradele and Sanders? Are they still around?"

    "Not in the Republic, but they are around the Frozen Dragon. I heard they build a fortified camp somehwere around."

    "Is that even possible? It is one of the coldest place on the world in there."

    "The entire crew is made of Capraex and Werewolves. They are a tough bunch."

    "Well, as long as they are far from our turf, the better."

    On a table far away, West alongside Tenkai and Edward hear the entire thing.

    West:....We got a pretty good info there.

    Tenkai: And we still don't know whatever we are looking there.

    Edward: Well, there has to be a reason why two dread pirates are interested in those parts.

    "Uuuurg...Finally managed to have a little break."

    Someone in covered his face with a hood entered the tavern and walked closer to them. He then trips on a ice cube in floor and falls next to Edward.


    Edward: Urg. You okay there, chump?

    "It's fine. It was just a...."

    The hood is out and it is revealed to be Commander Gerald.

    Edward: Eh?

    Gerald: Eh?

    West: Oh boy.

    Chapter 184: Commander of The North Pole Federation.

    Earlier on, at a tall building at the center on the Republic, Commander Gerald alongside a Marusian shorter than him dressed in green officer clothes with a scar around his left eye were waiting arounf a round table in the highest floor.

    Gerald: What do you think of all this, Chancellor?


    High Chancellor Boris.
    Race: Marusian.
    Former Commander of the North Pole Army.

    Boris: Negotiations must be made at closed walls, if possible. It's the other side of the coin of war soldier.

    Then a large Forsterian, bigger than both of them with big eyelashes wearing a suit and band around his body


    Gerald: President Peetz. Thanks for welcoming us.


    President Peetz.
    Race: Forsterian.
    Currently running his second mandate.

    "Kweek Kweek!"

    Peetz sits over a big chair and faces Boris.

    Boris: So, I take it you already know the situation. By the way, I wanna apologize again for the tardiness. That incident a month ago was a heavy blow.

    "Kwwweeek Kwek."

    Boris: Yes. Rogues are trouble.

    "Kweek Kweek Kwee Kwee."

    Boris: What? Pirates? Well, we could always...

    "Kweee Kwee Kweee Kweee."

    Boris: Huh?! Oh, right. There is the Kraken as well.

    "Kwweeee kwee."

    Boris: Hmmm...That is troublesome.

    "Kwee Kweee!"

    Boris:...Fine. We agree on your terms.


    He extend his flippers and shakes the Chancelor's hand in agreement. Boris then leaves with Gerald.

    Gerald: Sooo...What did you two agreed back there?

    Boris: Two pirate gangs led by Aradele and Sanders have took territory near the digging area. We need to remove them. Things have become quite handy with them since the Kraken appeared and they need to be alert.

    Gerald: I don't think we have enough people you know.

    Boris: And that is up to you now.

    Gerald: Eh?

    Boris: Find some way to bring more people with you and kick off those pirates. If you can't find anyone...Do it yourself.

    Gerald: W-What?!

    Boris: Good luck, soldier.

    He then leaves Gerald behind.

    Gerald: B-But....*sigh* I need a drink.

    A few moments later...Gerald meets Edward and the others.

    Gerald: I see....So you are the little fuckshit that almost killed corporal Mcswaggy at Taiyo isn't it?

    Edward: I wouldn't put that way.

    West: To be fair, I didn't liked that move either.

    Gerald: Well, I can do nothing on the matter. You are out of my jurisdiction...By the way, is your captain here?

    Tenkai: You're gonna try to arrest him after all?

    Gerald: No. You see I have a problem and I kind of short-handed at the moment.

    West:...If that is the case, let's talk somewhere else. This place is filled with Werewolves. *whisper* Let's not take a risk here.


    As they leave the tavern, a shady-looking man watches them.




    Back at Dafadel's house, Dafadel was filling a wine chalice with his own blood and gives to Vanessa.

    Vanessa: Thanks sweetie.

    Evelyne: *sniff* Smells pretty good.

    Vanessa: Yeah, it has a sweet fragrant.

    Evelyne: But I bet it's not taste as good as Johnny.

    Dafadel:...Damn right it does!

    He picks another cup and fills with his blood.

    Dafadel: Come on! Take it!

    Johnnathan: Vanessa, stop your grandson from stealing my girl.

    Evelyne: Okay, even if it is better, it does not mean he just as good in bed.

    Dafadel: Hey!

    Evelyne then gives a taste.

    Evelyne: Hmmm....Sweet and Sour....But it's still not as good.

    Dafadel: What?!

    Johnnathan: Haha!

    Vanessa: Hmmm...Can I have some?

    Johnnathan: Sure. Go ahead.

    He pulls his collar revealing his neck.

    Vanessa: Oooh. Offering right from the neck. What a gentleman. Do you mind Eve?

    Evelyne: Nope. I mean, your grandson got all the trouble of bleeding himself.

    Vanessa: Well, okay. Thanks for the meal.

    "Nom! Sluuurp!"

    Vanessa:....Woaaaaah! So good! And it reminds me a little of Ruby for some reason.

    Johnnathan: Nyehehehe...

    Dafadel: Hmpf!

    Vanessa: So Jonnny, how long have you been a pirate?

    Johnnathan: About as much as Eve. I started 10 years ago under in my brother's ship. He has been a pirate for 2 years at the time.

    Vanessa: That's a lot of time.

    Dafadel:....And what exactly the Kraken interests you?

    Johnnathan: It's not really the Kraken, but a Pearl we are after.

    Vanessa: A Pearl...You aren't talking about Neptune's Pearl aren't you?

    Evelyne: You know about it?

    Vanessa: I heard rumours about it. Apparently it is inside the Kraken.

    Johnnathan: Oh. So all we need is kill it, right?

    Dafadel: Why is that? Does it sell or something?

    Johnnathan: We are after another treasure that needs other treasures to find it. And the Pearl is one of them.

    Dafadel: I...Don't really get it, but it...does sound like an adventure! Does pirates always do that sort of stuff?

    Johnnathan:...We are not regular pirates.

    Dafadel:....(So cool...)

    His eyes shines with excitement.

    Vanessa: Hm? What is the deal with him?


    Florencia and Vanilla appears with a sack full of supplies.

    Vanilla: We brought the supplies for our journey.

    Dafadel: That's a load of fish.

    Johnnathan: How much did that cost?

    Florencia: About 5 Pieces of Gold.

    Dafadel: Isn't that a bit too expensive?

    Johnnathan: You can't take it easy out there. Specially if you sail for days and even weeks without setting feet on a single piece of land.

    Dafadel: Is that so?

    Vanessa:....Eve. Your ring. Put it on.

    Evelyne: Eh?

    Vanessa: Just do it.

    Evelyne: O-Okay.

    They put their Mirage Rings and the remaining members of the Red Beasts appears with Gerald.

    West: Hey captain! We returned it and brought a...helping hand with us.

    Vanessa: (I knew it...They brought a stranger.)

    Evelyne: (As expected of a sensor expert like her...But...Isn't that...)

    Vanilla: Oh. You guys are back and.... EH?! THERE ARE TWO EDWARDS?!

    Gerald: We meet again, Red Beast...And First-Mate.

    Johnnathan: Hey, it's the old man that looks like Edward.

    Florencia: We cross paths once again.

    Dafadel: You know Commander Gerald?

    Johnnathan: Also General Walpole. And it may not look like, but Edward is General Miilera's younger brother;

    Dafadel: The Valkyria? Who are you people?

    West: We are the Red Fucking Beasts.

    Florencia: Just cut off the "Fucking".

    Johnnathan: So, what reasons are you here Commander? You came here to arrest me? I'm gonna kill you if you do.

    Gerald: Easy there. I just happen to know our paths crosses once again.

    Johnnathan: What? Was that giant drill stolen again?

    Gerald: No. You see, the place we were supossed to place that thing has been occupied by two of the most terrible pirates.

    Johnnathan: Eh? No. Raven and my brother aren't allies.

    Gerald:...Wow. Aren't you cocky? Anyway, you want to get some sort of pearl and these two rascals that I really wanna kick out over this cold land are in the way. So how about we make a deal here?

    Johnnathan: What do I gain here?

    Gerald: I do not hands over you to the local authority and the pleasure of my company.

    Johnnathan:...That's a real hard one.

    West: Yeah...Two Edwards in one place....Geez!

    Edward: Hey!

    Chapter 185: Frozen Dragon's Path.


    Somewhere on the South Pole wildness, there was a cave hidden on the frozen outland. Inside the cave there was a large black steel door. Behind it, the cave extended far and far until a camp was found it inside. There, several pirates were stationed and two groups of them were looking at each other badly. Werewolves and Capraexes.

    "Hey, carnivores! Go out there and go eat a seal or something! Just leave our berries alone!

    "Shut up herbivores! You lot never had to stuggle to hunt! Go eat some paper like you always do!

    "I'm gonna beat the shit out of you, you little scurvy son of a screwdiver!

    "Bring it on you dim-witteds snot-trousers!"


    A man with long silver hair with a bang covering his left face appears wielding a scythe.

    "Eeek! Boss!"

    ???: There is a monster scarier than all of us hidden deep on this cave. Let's not wake it up, you maggots.


    Captain Aradele "Big Bad" Terry.
    Species: Werewolf.
    Bounty: 725 Pieces of Silver.

    "Y-Yes, sir!"

    Aradele: Yo, Sanders! Keep it your own boys down as well!

    He yells at a large black capraex wearing a silver jacket with a long beard and fangs from the jaw sitting on a crater.


    Captain Sander. "The Daredevil."
    Species: Capraex.
    Bounty: 915 Pieces of Silver.

    Sanders gave it his men a cold glare that flinch them.

    "S-Sorry, boss!"

    Aradele: Man, what a mess. Can't believe Taurog forced us to go to this frozen hell. And the two of us. They could just sent you or something like that.


    Aradele: I mean, we are together for the loot, but that doesn't mean we have to get along.



    He turns into a wolfman and confronts Sander.

    Aradele: I am trying to engage in a conversation here! Say something, damnit!

    "Captain Aradele!"

    A Werewolf scout appeared before the tension could rise.

    Aradele: Eh? What do you want?!

    "I got a note from a bird messenger from the Republic. It says that Commander Gerald is recruiting some local people at the Republic City."


    Sander: He is probably forming a group to eliminate us. Even a human child could figure that out.

    Aradele: Tsk! At least I am not pulling any rushed conclusion. Two of you, go scout the surrounding area outside. If someone get close, send me the details! I wanna know whatever he is sending us.

    Back at the Republic, Johnny and his group left the city into the Frozen Dragon alongside Commander Gerald wearing coats for the cold.

    Gerald: Be glad I had those spared.

    Johnnathan: What are those made of?

    Gerald: It's made from the Giant Black Artic Salmon's skin. Its the most heat-resistant material in the North Pole.

    Vanilla: We are wearing fish skin? Yuck!

    Florencia: Hmm...That reminds me, I received something from Mother as a weeding's gift.

    West: What was it?

    Florencia: I'll show another time.

    Gerald: Hold on. You are married?

    Florencia: Yep. A Month ago.

    West: With me.

    Gerald: What? Isn't he a Werewolf?

    Florencia: So what if he is?

    Gerald: Well...As long as you are happy...

    "Wait right there!"

    Dafadel appears running after them.

    Johnnathan: You again. What is it now?

    Dafadel: So I was thinking....Can I go with you guys?

    Edward: You....Wanna hang out with us?

    Dafadel:...Technically, yes.

    Edward: *Gaaaasp* Did you heard that guys? Dafadel wanna hang out with us! Isn't this amazing?!

    Gerald: Dafadel...Where did I heard that again?

    Johnnathan: Why do you wanna come along?

    Dafadel: W-Well, this is a bit embarassing, but...I kinda wanna see how a pirate like the Red Beast acts...I just curious...

    Johnnathan:....I get it, dude.

    Dafadel: You....do?

    Johnnathan: Yeah, but let me tell ya. Even though I am not into that, I totally support this kind of thing.

    Dafadel: Huh?

    Johnnathan: I am flattered, really. But as you can see, I already have someone.

    Dafadel: Wait a second! You are totally getting the wrong idea.

    Johnnathan: Oh, I see....You want to steal my Eve away don't you!

    Dafadel: Wha?!

    "Give it up then. As you are right now, you are under her standard."

    Vanessa then appears from behind.

    Gerald: Woah! Where did she came from?!

    Johnnathan: Hey! She only has one standard! The Highlander Standard! Isn't that right, Eve?!


    Johnnathan: Eve?....Where is she?

    Tenkai: Oh. She went ahead when Dafadel appeared. Said she was gonna check something.

    Johnnathan: What? How could you let her go like that?!

    Vanessa: Don't worry. You of all people should know she hardly needs protection, specially from around here.

    Gerald: May I help you with something ma'am?

    Vanessa: Yes. I want you to allow me to accompany my gran-I mean cousin alongside your trip.

    Dafadel: Eh? Gra-I mean, Vanessa, you wanna come as well?

    Vanessa: I have to keep a look at you, don't I?

    Dafadel: I thought you would stop me?

    Vanessa: I think this would be an excellent...experience for you.

    Dafadel: Huh?

    Johnnathan: Yeah, right. Any objections, Commander?

    Gerald: Well, the more the better. But will you two be alright?

    Vanessa: We may not look, but we are tough.

    Johnnathan: Right. Now let's go after my girl!

    He leaves in a rush ahead of everyone else.

    West: H-Hey! Come back.

    West follow the lead carrying the large bag of supplies. After travelling a few meters, a small snowstorm hits them.

    West: Uuurgh. Just my luck. Will we have to travel by feet?

    Gerald: Sorry. Didn't planned that further....Or was even allowed to do it.

    Vanessa: We were on a shortage of dog sleds right noe, anyway.

    Johnnathan: Man, should we wait for this storm to go away, then?


    Johnnathan: Eve?

    He hears her voice from a distance and see 4 large shadows coming closer to them.

    Johnnathan: Hmm? What the fuck?!

    The Evelyne appears riding a giant yellow seal creature with a red mane around his head followed by three other similar creatures, but without manes with glowing red eyes.

    Evelyne: Why don't we use those?

    Gerald:....A group of Sea Lions?


    Vanessa: (So she can sire animals, huh?)

    Johnnathan:...Bloody hell.

    Extra Story: Carol's Gaiden.

    Hollowgrounds, October 31, 50 Years ago. It was Corvus' Birthday. He was alongside his brother, Specter on his quarters. Corvus was lazying around on a chair while Specter was taking notes while observing a frog.

    Corvus: So boooored. Yo, Specter. Let's do something fun.

    Specter: Just a minute. Small times like those aren't a big deal for you.

    Corvus: That's what you said 10 minutes ago...By the way, isn't that the frog from like...Last century or something?

    Specter: Yep....And no.

    Corvus:...Better not ask too many questions.

    *Knock Knock*

    Someone knocks the door.

    "Hey Specter, It's me Lex. Can I enter?"

    Specter: Go ahead.

    Lex enters the room with a dagger on his left eye.


    Lex: Who else? Can any of you do anything about it.


    Specter just pulls the dagger out of his eye, taking the whole eyeball with it.

    Lex:....GAAAAAAAAH!!! Damnit Specter! If I wanted to pull off like that I would have done it myself!

    Specter: Don't be such a baby. Eyes grow back.

    Lex: That doesn't mean I do not feel pain, you know that...By the way, it's your birthday isn't it Corvus?

    Corvus: Yeah, so what?

    Lex: So what? You know Lady Topazia sees it as a holiday don't you? She already took the usual ammount of "presents" for you...There is even a child.

    Specter: For a vampire like us, birthdays are meaningless as peebles from the ground.

    Lex: Well, that isn't untrue. Anyway, are you guys gonna do something in particular?

    Corvus: We didn't decided it.

    Lex: Well, it's because I seen Carol sneaking out of the castle. She seems to be heading out of the city.

    Specter: So what?

    Lex: Well...She was smelling pretty well. And took a bottle of our best blood.

    Corvus: What...Wait a minute....Wait a minute! Does she....Ooooooh....

    Corvus then gets up of his chair.

    Corvus: I'm gonna go off.

    He turns onto a flock of bat and flies away.

    Lex:....Don't you gonna follow him?

    Specter: I am not his pet or anything.

    Back at the Dark Woods, a large forest at Hollowgroud's outer area, Carol was at the front of a water spring wearing a hood and with a picnic basket. She then looks at a tree nearby.

    Carol:...It's you out there, Lucian?


    From behind the three a hooded vampire with a long purple hair and a sorrowful face comes.


    Lucian Ripher.
    Species: Vampire.
    Age: 70
    Rank: Middle.

    Carol: How long have you been behind there?

    Lucian: About 30 minutes.

    Carol: And you make me wait all this time? Rude!>:I

    Lucian: Ah! Please forgive me!

    Carol: Teehee. Of course I do. Come here!

    She pulls him by his arm and the two of them sits next to the spring. Carol picks two chalices from the basket and hands one of them to Lucian. She picks a large bottle and fills up his chalice with blood.

    Carol: This is what me and my brothers drink. Taste it!

    Lucian:...You sure it is okay? I am not even of high standard.

    Carol: I see you in battle. You're pretty high in my standards.


    He then gives a sip.

    Lucian:...It's good...but not as I expected.


    Lucian: What?

    Carol: You sounded like just like Corvus a little bit.

    Lucian: Did I?

    Carol: Yeah...It's his birthday today. But he never acts very enthusiasmatic. I guess having 950 birthdays is enough to be bored with it.

    Lucian: I guess so...Hey.

    Carol: Yeah?

    Lucian: I just wanna say...Thanks for having interest in a man like me. Coming from the First Princess of the Vampires is...quite a deal.

    Carol:...Hey Lucian.

    She then holds his hands.

    Carol: Why don't...We run away.

    Lucian: What?

    Carol: Here...No one will accept us. But maybe somewhere...We can find a place far away from here filled with humans. Take over them as our slaves and live like kings.

    Lucian: Don't do that.

    Carol: Huh?

    Lucian: I know you love your brothers more than anything in this world. It would be too painful for you to left them don't you?

    Carol: You really know very much about me.

    Lucian: How about I make a promise?

    Carol: What kind of promise?

    Lucian: I'll become a Red Sword. That way I will raise my rank so we could be with each other.

    Carol: A Red Sword?! But that's-

    Lucian: Dangerous, I know. But that might be the only way your father will acknowledge me, right?

    Carol: You...You would go that far for me?

    Lucian: Yes. You are a princess. I should at least try this hard for you.

    Carol: Lucian...Thank you.

    From far away, Raven was watching at a distance laying over a hill with a bored face.

    Raven:....Is...Is that it? Aren't they gonna make out and then fuck each other? Lame. I always thought the man that my sister would fall over would be a sadistic jerkface, but now...I am a little disappointed.

    He stretches himself a little bit and gets a little doozy.

    Raven: Anyway, I do admire his ambition, but that may affect negatively my sister and get in the way of my plans a little bit...Should I just get rid of him by telling father about it and break her heart in shards or should I get this thing carry on a little bit...Decisions, decisions...Oh well, I've been here enough time.

    He turns into bats and flies away back to Hollowgrounds.

    Carol:...Hey Lucian.

    Lucian: What is i-

    She gives him a tackle and gets on top of him.

    Carol: Let's get wasted, shall we?

    Lucian:....Oh dear.

    Chapter 186: Dark Fever.

    The snow was roaring. It was a storm of white like an empty canvas. But it was no trouble for the Sea Lions. The slided through the ice with ease and the snow was like a small shower to them. Evelyne had a close link with them and were following her orders.

    Evelyne with Johnnathan and Vanessa were mounted in the one with manes. One Lion had Edward, Vanilla and Dafadel, other had Florencia, West and Gerald while Tenkai was with the smaller one. Johnnathan was holding the Champion's Compass and the pack was heading towards where the compass was pointing.

    Johnnathan: Yep. We are following the right path alright.

    Evelyne: Good thing I spotted those beauties on the way back.

    Vanessa: I always had the feeling you had the talent tame beasts Eve. Had your father know of this, you would be one of his most important pieces.

    Evelyne: I am NOT a tool!

    Vanessa: Ah! I-I'm sorry.

    Evelyne:...Sorry. Just don't mention him, please.

    Vanessa: Parents that are vampires....I know how it is. By the way, Eve...How is your brother doing?

    Evelyne:...Which one?

    Vanessa: You know...Wagner. The one who you shared a mother.

    Evelyne: He is go by Noir now. He is fine, I guess. He is acting as Raven's Right-Hand man.

    Vanessa: Right...He was always the reliable one, huh?

    Evelyne:...Why did you asked about him?

    Vanessa: He always believed in Honour and Duty more than anyone. It's a surprise he betrayed his father like that.

    Evelyne:...He was more proud of being our brother than being the son of the Vampire King. It's not compicated.

    Vanessa: He is surprisingly a simple man.

    She looks back at the sky with a tone of mystery on his face.

    West: *sniff* Werewolves passed around here...And Capraexes. These two races don't usually get along.

    Gerald: And to think they wanted me to do this by myself....Good grief.

    Florencia: I guess you will be owning us more after this Commander.

    Gerald: Yeah, that's right. Abuse of my good will.

    West: Anyway, don't you think you might be related to Edward on some extent. Like a distant cousin or something.

    Gerald: It's possible. The humans on the North Pole came from somewhere...But the very thought kinda scares me.

    West:...Me too.

    Meanwhile on the lion that had Edward, he was somehow overjoyed.

    Edward: Hehehe...Hehehehe...Hahahahaha!

    Vanilla: Eh...Eddie? Are you okay?

    Edward: I am riding a Sea Lion on the South Pole with my girlfriend and Dafadel...I am so glad to be alive!

    Dafadel: This is so awkward in many ways...

    Vanilla: Hmm....I do remember you being in Gel now that I think about it. There was a tournament there right?

    Edward: Oh yeah! I was there. It was the Finals from the Young World Fencing Championship. Man, that guy almost got you, huh?

    Dafadel: I was a bit carelessback there.

    Vanilla: I wasn't interested in swordplay back there. The opponent was from Gel if I remember right...It was something with C.

    Dafadel: Yeah...something like...Co..Uuuuuurrr....

    Suddenly his face got red and his body temperature rises it.

    Vanilla: D-Dafadel?


    Vanilla: Oh no....He passed out!

    Edward: What?

    Vanilla: He has a fever!

    Edward: What?! Johnnathan!

    Johnnathan: Hmm?

    Edward: It's Dafadel! He....He is very bad! He is unwake and got a fever and all that!

    Johnnathan: A fever....

    Vanessa: A Fever?! How?

    Johnnathan:....Eve. Can you make the Lions find a safe place.

    Evelyne: Got it!

    She soothes the Lion a little and the Lion guides them to a cave far away from the path. They put some fire inside and put Dafadel on a comfy sheet.

    Vanessa: I....I don't get it. What is wrong with him?!

    Johnnathan: It's the Dark Fever.

    Edward: Dark Fever?

    Johnnathan: It's a condition caused by a rise of Darkness on his body. It's kind of fisiological. Every Hybrid had at it once.

    Evelyne: You had?

    Johnnathan: Yep. Heinrich too. I was like shit when it happened. I got better the next day.

    Dafadel: I...I'm sorry...

    Johnnathan: Don't bother it, kid.

    Vanessa: Is there something I can do?

    Johnnathan: Welll....A bit of blood helps it....Vampire one is better, but there is totally not one here? Am I right? Huh?

    He looks at Vanessa and Evelyne.

    "......We get it."

    Vanessa then cuts his palm and puts on front of Dafadel's mouth. He wakes it up and slowly starts to lick.

    Vanessa: That's it...Take as much as you can.

    She kisses his forehead while holding his head helping him licking her palm. The others then watches it a bit far from them on another bonfire.

    Gerald: I gotta give to her. Bleeding herself for her cousin and acts like it was nothing. She is pretty tough. She would become an amazing mother.


    Gerald: What? Something I said it? Well, I'm not gonna lie, she is totally my type, but I am already married.

    Johnnathan: It's not that, really.

    Edward: Still...I'm amazed that Hybrids can get sick.

    Johnnathan: We can, but we resist to most of them...But I heard about some conditions...Things that you would call a "Curse".

    Evelyne: Curse?

    Johnnathan: Sometimes our level of Darkness can change whatever you can call normal in our terms. That thing that happened with me a month ago is no different. But since there are too few of my kind around...It's just one or two different cases that are witnessed. A girl that lost his sight....a man who lost his ability to speak...and an unlucky fellow whose body couldn't just take it. Dark Fever is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Evelyne: That's so sad.

    Johnnathan: Easy. People die everytime from diseases anyway.

    Evelyne:...Not my people.

    Gerald: Huh? What do you-

    Florencia: N-Nothing! She just came from somewhere where people are very healthy!


    West: Yeah...I got it. Two of them.

    Vanilla: What?

    Far from the cave, two werewolves were watching with binoculars.

    "....Let's see, a bunch of humans...a Fairy....And there is 4 Sea Lions with them. Weird bunch."

    "...That guy in red....I seen him before....It's The Red Beast!"

    West: It seems we are being watched.

    Chapter 187: Daredevil.

    "Let's report to the captain."

    The two werewolves left the scene while West just ignore them.

    Gerald: Hey....Hey! Are you sure this is okay?!

    West: Want do you want to me to do? Go out there and take them alone? If you wanna do that be my guest.

    Florencia: You know, if you tell me their exact location I can fire an arrow at them.

    Tenkai: Even if you shot them, more would come anyway. We have already been caught on their talons by the time we stoped by.

    Dafadel: Sorry...guys...

    Vanessa: It's not your fault, damnit!

    Edward: Sooo...What now? I don't feel safe being here.

    Johnnathan:...I'll go take a look outside.

    West: In that storm? At least take someone with you.

    Johnnathan: Nah. I'm fine. I'm half-vampire, I can take it.

    Evelyne: Then I'll go with you.

    Johnnathan: No. Your sensory skills will be better here. If you feel something weird you can give a shout.

    Evelyne: But again, why do you have to go?

    Johnnathan: I wanna study the path ahead. You can't navigate without a clear route.

    Gerald: That's kind of makes sense.

    Florencia:....Very well. I have no objections.

    Johnnathan: Alright then, here I go.

    Johnnathan leaves the cave and Evelyne summons her chain to perform dowsing.

    Gerald:...Where did that came from?

    Vanilla: I-It's just a Earth-based Spell. Hehehehe...


    West: I know. I know.

    West then follows Johnnathan when he was already far.

    Edward:...What is going on?

    Florencia: It's not important, really?

    Gerald: That guy is your captain, right? Wouldn't be bad if something happened to him?

    Tenkai: He wouldn't go down easily if you are thinking that.

    A bit far from them, Johnnathan was standing in the middle of the snowstorm looking at the white covering the whole place. He then picks a cigarrete and lights it.

    Johnnathan:...What a pain in the ass.

    "Yeah. You can't see much can you?"

    He is surprised by West that was right behind him.

    Johnnathan: Wha?! What are you-

    West: Relax, man. You have nothing to hide from me. I already knew you smoke.

    Johnnathan: You...did?

    West: Do you forget what I am sometimes? I remember you smelling like cigarrete when we first met.

    Johnnathan: And you never said anything?

    West: Should I? It's not my bussiness. Anyway, that's really a sorry excuse for going out in this snow.

    Johnnathan: Well, I certainly need to stay composed from now on. And this helps me relax a bit.

    West:....You know...Me and Flor have been talking about and we noticed that you've been smoking less lately.

    Johnnathan: I...am?

    West: Yes. Right after Eve joined us. Are you afraid of her seeing you with that trash in your mouth?

    Johnnathan:...So what if I am?

    West: Well, good for you then.

    Johnnathan:...Yeah, I am actually trying to stop.

    Later at the hideout of the pirates, the two werewolves returned to deliver the news.

    Aradele: The Red Beast? Really?

    "It was similar to the poster, captain."

    Aradele: Well, that's something. Let's just reinforce the security or some shit like that.

    Sander: No.

    Aradele: Huh?

    Sander: If it's the Red Beast we are talking about then a group of small fries will not stop him. Werewolf or Capraex. I'll deal with him myself.

    Aradele: Woah. You sure about that?

    Sander: Keep supervising the operation. I'll be ahead.

    He walks outside of the camp towards the main gate.

    "That Red Beast is no match for the Boss!"

    "He does not know what is coming for him!"

    Aradele:....Hey, Herbivores. What is that guy's story?

    "Huh?! Why do you wanna know you punk ass carnivore?!"

    "We are not gonna say anything about the boss!"

    Aradele: Why not? You guys like to brag about him, right?

    "Huuuh...Yeah. But you see, the boss is...kinda like a taboo or something like that, yeah."

    Aradele: You guys are pirates. Everything is permitted.

    "Well, when you put that way....Long ago in Mox Mountains there was a group of bandits that kinda made it his turf there."

    "Yeah, that was like not cool, bruh."

    "And these bandits kind of kidnapped a bunch of human girls. From a lot of villages down below."

    Aradele: Naturally.

    "And our people at the time were like 'screw this' and decided to kick those squish asses out of the mountains. It was then the the boss decided to go by himself."

    Aradele: No biggie. I could have done that.

    "He kinda overdid it."

    Aradele: Say what?

    "When he steped his hooves on their turf he started killing everyone there. And he was on fire!"

    "Yeah, dude. Literally. He burned the whole camp! He left no survivors!"

    "Including the hostages."

    Aradele: I didn't knew you guys liked to burn.

    "We don't. But the boss kinda does things like that."

    "Some people who were near the place that witnessed the whole thing didn't believed it was a Capraex at all. All they could see...Was a devil."

    Aradele: So that's where the Daredevil part came from.

    "He left Mox to become a pirate a week later. Everyone was kinda shitting bricks with him around."

    Aradele: I guess I really teamed up with two monsters here.

    Back at the cave, Florencia was assisting on Dafadel's recovery.

    Florencia: Well, now this is certainly easier to control.

    Vanessa: Have you witnessed this before?

    Florencia: Turns out once Johnnathan had a great rise of Darkness that shattered his soul that came alongside some soul resurrection crap that not only got his magic a bit in disarray, but also turned his vampire side berserk and he needed to go all the way to the Underworld to fix it.

    Gerald:....I think I can't see straight after this?

    Dafadel: I thought you...can't get out of there.

    Edward: Turns out we got a generous donations of Skeleton Coins.

    Dafadel:...It seems you guys have a lot of adventures, huh?

    Vanilla: You have no idea.-_-

    Dafadel:...Oh crap.

    Vanessa: What is it?

    Dafadel: I just realized I forgot to pack that watering can and axe for tomorrow...Hahaha...I guess it's a piece of gold lost, huh?

    Vanessa: Don't bother about it. Anything, we let Gerald explain.

    Gerald: Yes boy, I-Wait, What?!

    After an hour, Dafadel's fever is finally gone and he recovers his healthy. Also the snow seemed to disappear as well.

    Edward: Well, talk about good timing.

    Vanilla:...Oh. Take a look.

    Vanilla points at the dragon's corpse on top of a mountain.

    Florencia: So that's the Frozen Dragon that Merman talked about it. By the look, it appears to be a fire dragon. Vanessa, do you know any history about that?

    Vanessa: It's a relic of the Draconian War. Probably a victim of the vampires.

    Johnnathan: There was a war between vampires and draconians here?

    Vanessa: Not here. But that dragon probably fought a powerful vampire that was brought all the way here from the North.

    Evelyne then whispers at Johnnathan.

    Evelyne: *psst* It was Raven.


    Gerald: So, where do we go next?

    Evelyne: Leave it to me. I'll guide you with my sliding friends.

    They ride the Sea Lions one more time and they arrive on a cave. When they drop out of the Sea Lions, Evelyne starts to sooth them.

    Evelyne: Goodbye Hannibal. Take care.


    The Sea Lions slides away to a hole in the ice.

    Vanessa: That will cause a major change in the ecosystem.-__-

    Johnnathan: You say this because you didn't seen the owl.

    Edward:....Are you sure this is the place? It doesn't seem to have 2 pirate crews around here.

    Evelyne: I am. In fact, there is a very loud noise far below here.

    "Took long enough, huh?"

    They hear a very deep voice and loud footsteps coming out of the cave. Sanders appears from inside the cave exhaling from his nose.

    Dafadel: That's...A capraex?

    Vanessa: That one sure is creepy.

    Sander: The Red Beast...Is one of you, right?

    Johnnathan: That's me.

    Sander: I don't know what do you want with us and I do not care. But I'll let everyone except you pass.

    Gerald: You will?

    Sander: It's not like it will be easy for you anyway.

    West: (This cheeky bastard is understimating us...)

    Johnnathan: I see. You want to hold me back while your allies get the work done. Pretty unorthodox for a captain...kinda like me.

    Sander: Correct...with only one mistake. I am not here for hold you down...I am here for eliminating you completely.

    Johnnathan: Oh. And why do you say that?

    Sander: Because I am stronger than you. Since you are weaker than me, there is no way the result would be the opposite.

    Edward: Hey! Our captain crushed assholes stronger than you!

    Florencia: This guy really needs a special lesson from you captain.

    Johnnathan: Yeah. You guys go ahead.

    The rest of the crew walks past Sander while looking at him with disgust. Evelyne then stay next to Johnnathan and gives him a seal kiss in the mouth.

    Evelyne: You can't die without my permission.

    Johnnathan: Right back at you.

    She leaves and Johnnathan picks his blades. Sander then pulls two large sickles and gets in his fighting stances.

    Sander: Do you know why people fight?

    Johnnathan: Beats me.

    Chapter 188: Feel the burn.

    Days ago at the Death Crow, Raven was reading a letter of sort.

    Raven: Hmm.....That's interesting. Interesting situation we have.

    "Er, sir?"

    Sheldon alongside Sheldon, Potato and Rob were standing right in front of him.

    Sheldon: You called us recently because?

    Raven: Oh. Yeah, about that. I need you guys to go to the South Pole.

    Sheldon:...For what? Has anything to do with that time you went there like a month ago?

    Raven: Yeah. There is a bunch of people I want you to deal with it. Can you handle them?

    Potato: Aye Aye! We will take their lives with our very own lives! Isn't that right, boy?!

    Rob: Woof!

    Joshua: Can we make friends with them instead?

    Raven: Well, that is an open option, actually. You see, my sister is probably there and I would like if you could bring her alive.

    Sheldon: You si-What?! A-Admiral! Can I ask something?

    Raven: What is it? You wanna marry my sister if you bring her or something?

    Sheldon:....Yes. It is that or something.

    Raven:...Alright then.

    Sheldon: Yes! Let's waste the South Pole!

    Potato: I don't get what happened...But I like youe enthusiasm, boy.


    Moonlight appears storming the room. She was spoting a eyepatch around her right eye.

    Joshua: Aaaaah...It's mu muse, Moonlight. That eyepatch makes her so much pretty....

    Moonlight: Fuck off! Get your lame asses out of here or I'll feed your balls to the dogs!


    Joshua: We have dogs?

    The four of them leaves Moonlight and Raven alone.

    Raven: So, what can I do for you, dear sister?

    Moonlight: Let me go after them! I want to deal with them personally.

    Raven: Oh. What are you planning on doing with them?

    Moonlight: First, I will brainwash Highlander until he becomes my toy.

    Raven: Classic.

    Moonlight: Then I'll force Evening see me marrying him.

    Raven: That seems unnecessary, but fine.

    Moonlight: But after that I'll restrain her and force her to watch me fuck him everyday!

    Raven: Whoa! That'd brutal even for my own standards.

    Moonlight: Do you even have standards?

    Raven: I may be the worst jerk in the world, but that does not mean there are things I do not like to see.

    Moonlight: Whatever! Death is just too good for her at this point.

    Raven: I can't disagree with that. Anyway, even that I do enjoy you seeking out for those...activities, I do think there will be too much meat for one dinner on the south pole.

    Moonlight: You talking about those four bozoos?

    Raven: Heh. I wish. Now on one other hand...

    Raven than looks at his letter one more time.

    Raven:...Never thought I would hear that name again...Ping-Pong.

    Present day, at the South Pole. Johnnathan was having a fierce battle with Sander inside the cave. Sander swung his sickles around trying to slash Johnnathan while he dodges and countered his attacks.

    Johnnathan: His skin is hard.

    Sander: Grah!

    He smashes his sickles into the ground trying to smash Johnnathan with them.

    Sander: Graaaaah!

    "Smash! Smash!"

    Johnnathan:...Ah, bloody hell.

    Johnnathan dashes through Sander slashing his side.

    Sander: Gruh!

    He tries to retaliate, but Johnnathan jumps over him and slashes his neck.

    Sander: Gyaaaa!

    He goes berserk and attacks Johnnathan with a headbut, but he blocks it and delivers several slashes into him and finishes with a shot from his gun.

    Sander: Gruff!

    Sander gets on his knees.

    Johnnathan: Really? All you are doing is swinging those gardening tools around like a madman. You aren't tough at all.


    Suddenly, the ice around starts to melt.

    Johnnathan: Hmm? (Suddenly it's got a little hot here.)

    Sander: And you aren't that smart. Aaaaaaaaaah!!!

    His body gets on fire and an explosion around him pushes Johnnathan.

    Johnnathan: Guh! Fire Magic?

    Sander: Hehehehe...

    Sander's body is then covered on fire and he slowly walks towards Johnnathan.

    Sander: Do you really think I wouldn't face off against a bigshot like you if I didn't believed that I could beat you? My peopleare a bunch of cocky knockbonkers for a reason you know.

    He then spits a fireball at Johnnathan. He dodges escaping the fire explosion.

    Johnnathan:...Somehow I can relate to that.

    Sander: Graaaah!

    He charges at Johnnathan with amazing speed and crashes him like a meteor crashing him into the cave's walls.

    Johnnathan: Blergh! He got faster.

    Sander: Come on, brother! I know your kind isn't made of weaklings!

    Johnnathan: You know what I am?

    Sander: Damn right. Also, I heard that you also took it down one of Raven's brothers.

    Johnnathan: How do you know that?

    Sander: Taurog's intel still scares me sometimes, but somehow he knows a lot about Raven.

    Johnnathan: Is that so? Well, then...

    Johnnathan activates his Dark Synchro.

    Sander: What the?

    Johnnathan: Tell me more about it.

    Chapter 189: Big Bad Wolf.

    Keeping their path through the cave, the crew walked without looking behind. Dafadel and Vanessa felt a strong pressure coming from near the entrance and looked back with their faces surprised.

    Gerald:...What is with you two?

    Dafadel:...Did anyone else felt this?

    Florencia: It was Johnnathan. You see...He is a bit different from the other Hybrids.

    Edward: Oh. He done it again? We humans can't feel.

    Vanessa: Huh...I think I felt something similar weeks ago.

    West: Still, it is kind of rare for him to pull that so soon. That goat is no joke.

    Gerald: And you guys still believes on him?

    Evening: Do you expect your soldiers to believe on you, Commander?

    Gerald: Well, naturally.

    Evening: Well, there you have it.

    Vanilla: Hmm....What is that?

    She points at a puddle of green water on the ground.

    West: *sniff* Smells like....some sort of gas...

    Gerald: Could it be.....Excuse me young lady, could you please give a small ember on that.

    Vanilla: Alright.

    She snaps her fingers and releases a small flame towards the liquid. The liquid boils and the floor is dissolved.

    Gerald: I knew it. It's Linium.

    Edward: Linium?

    Florencia: It's a substance found on the deep of cold regions, but they are rare. On the contact with fire, they release a powerful corrosive effect...Is this what the North Pole is after?


    Edward: I thought it was Petroleum.

    Gerald: That was kind of a code for hiding the true objective. And of course, the reason is classified.

    West:....Guys, I think we hit on...something.

    They arrive at a large black steel gate full of gears in front of them.

    Edward:...How the hell did they build this?!

    Gerald: They are made of Werewolves and Capraexes so it kind of possible.

    Dafadel: I am more interested of how do we open this.

    Edward: It appears to need some sort of key to activate those gears.

    Evelyne: *whisper* Tenkai. Vanessa. Can't we you know....force our way through?

    Vanessa: Could it be, but there is one here that does not know about my secret.

    Tenkai: How about me and West then?

    Dafadel then touches the door.

    Dafadel:...This is Darkanium.

    Gerald: Darkanium?

    Dafadel: Darkalloy in it's purest form. And 50 times more durable.

    Vanilla: How do you know all that.

    Dafadel: You learn a thing or two by working with all kinds of metal...And since it's Darkanium...Maybe I could...

    He emits a dark aura on his palms and touches the door. The gears emits a dark aura and starts to move and the door slowly opens.

    Edward: Oh, that's right. Hybrids can do that.

    Dafadel: Well, that seemed easy eno-


    Vanessa quickly pulls Dafadel out of the way before Aradele could smash his scythe at him.

    Daradel: Rats!

    Gerald: That's...Big Bad Aradele.

    Aradele: Sander isn't here...

    He picks a wanted poster of Johnnathan and analyzes it.

    Aradele: And the Red Beast isn't here. I guess I got a glimpse of the situation. I guess I will have to deal with the other cuts of this fillet...And it's quite a lot.

    Edward: Hah! You and what army?

    Tenkai: Maybe that one made up of Werewolves and Capraexes behind him.


    Edward:...Why didn't you saw that coming?

    Aradele: Get them!!



    The pirates attacked all armed with blades and clubs. Gerald gave it the first shot by picking a black and yellow pistol gun and shooting electic bullets at them, taking down six of them.

    Edward: Pretty cool gun you got it.

    Gerald: It's the first of it's kind. North Pole Original.

    Vanilla: Less talk, more action!

    Vanilla creates several fire orbs around her and launches at the enemy. Dafadel was surrounded by several Werewolves armed with daggers, but he counters all of their attacks and strikes them with rapid fury attacks.

    Dafadel: *pant* *pant* I never...felt like this for a long time.

    Vanessa: Dafadel, watch out!

    Dafadel: Eh?

    A Capraex attacks Dafadel from behind with a headbutt.

    Dafadel: Ouch...My spleen.

    The Capraex then jumps and tries to smash him with a headbut, but Vanessa delivers a dropkick in mid-air send him flying.

    Vanessa: You're okay, sweetie?

    Dafadel: Yeah...just don't call me that.

    Another Capraex was coming from behind, charging a headbutt, but Vanessa quickly turns around and holds him from the horns stopping it completely.

    Vanessa: Gyaaaaa!

    She lifts the Capraex and delivers a piledriver, digging his head on the ground. She then proceeds to beat any enemy that came next to her with her fists and throw attacks. Gerald watches it as he still keeps shooting.

    Gerald:...That woman looks a bit too strong for her looks.

    Meanwhile Dafadel watches as the Red Beasts keeps standing against his men.

    Dafadel: Hmmm....This might gets troublesome.

    He then turns into a wolfman and starts exhaling air.

    Vanilla: Huh? What is he...


    He blows a strong wind wave that sends a powerful push force like a wind cannon.

    Florencia: Oh my! Is that...Wind Magic?

    Aradele: Heh.

    He covers his scythe's blade with a wind blades and sends a powerful slice that created a fissure from a wind blade that almost hits Gerald.

    Gerald: A werewolf...that can wield wind magic...he certainly stands out.

    West:...Yeah, he does...

    Aradele then starts to exhale once more.

    Edward: Uh-oh. He is doing it again.

    Aradele: Wolf Cannon!

    He launches another wind cannon, but West stands on front and null the attack with his machete covered in darkness.

    Aradele: What the?

    "He...blocked the Wolf Cannon?!"

    West:...But he isn't the only one.

    West: Done what?

    Aradele: That thing with the machete? What is this black stuff coming out of it?

    West: This? It's Dark Magic.

    Aradele: Dark Magic?! What does that mean?!

    West: Why are you so upset about it?

    Aradele: Well, it's not that, but most importantly, what is your name?

    West: West. West Terry.

    Aradele: Oh. So you are a Terry as well. That makes things better. You see, I like you. Why don't you join me? You can be the First-Mate.

    "But sir, isn't Phil the First-Mate?"

    Aradele: I'm pretty sure Phil wouldn't mind, right Phil?


    Aradele: Well, so what do you say? We are all brothers here...Outside of the herbivores that we are allied right now.

    West:...Sorry, but I already have a crew that happens to be more awesome than yours. And besides, if I ever gonna be on a pack, I would be the Alpha.

    Aradele: Give me a break! What else can you do that I can't?!


    He launches a dark wolf head hat bites and slam him into a wall.

    Aradele: Urgh!

    Evelyne: That's Johnny's powers. Dark Link.

    Dafadel: Can I...Can I do that as well?

    "Wow, did you see that?"

    "It was almost like a Fenrir."

    "I am a Capraex, but I am impressed by that."

    Aradele: SHUUUUT UUUUP!

    Aradele gets on his feet surrounded by a whirlwind.

    Aradele: Alright you scumbag. Let's see how your dark thingmajing can whistand againt my wind!

    West: Huuuuh...We kinda already saw that, didn't we?

    Aradele:...Fuck it all!

    He swings his scythe several times sending wind blades at West that he deflects with his machete covered in darkness.

    Aradele: Stop showing off!

    Aradele comes closer and engages West in close combat. West dodges his scythe attacks.

    West: (Can't do much against a weapon like that with only a big knife.)

    Aradele: Die! Die! Die!

    Then a dark arrow of light pierces his right knee.

    Aradele: Oooouch! My kneee!

    Florencia: No one bothers my husband unless I allow it.

    Aradele: Your...Husband? What the hell is going on?! You are a Fairy!

    West: That does not mean she isn't hot.

    Florencia: Thanks darling.

    Vanessa: She can use Darkness as well?

    Evelyne: Yup. All because Johnny is a good friend.

    Gerald: Just what is going on with this crew?

    Aradele: Guh! Still, why did you have to shot me on the knee, damnit! Oh damn...Guuuuh...My kneeee....If that is the case...Artillery, now!

    Several Capraexes carrying bazookas appears.

    Gerald: Wait, aren't those...

    They fire their weapons and unleashes large fireballs that releases a powerful explosion.

    Vanilla: Gah! What are those?!

    Gerald: Those are Magic Weapons kinda like my gun. I wonder how they got one.

    Aradele: Shoot it again!

    The Capraexes takes aim one more time.

    Vanilla:...I'll deal with this. Summon!

    Vanilla creates a white glyph behind her and a small snowstorm appears.

    Gerald: A Glyph...

    Vanilla: I summon the: Snowey!

    A white fairy with glowing white eyes appears from the glyph. The Capraexes then shoots another volley of fireballs. The Fairy then blows a kiss that summons an entire blizzard that dispels all of them and covers the Capraexes in snow.

    Aradele: What the?

    "Damnit Our weapons are frozen!"

    Tenkai: I will fix that for you.


    Tenkai appears from behind them with his sword unsheated. He them starts to sheats his sword.

    Tenkai: Phantom Fire: Kagutsuchi!

    The Capraexes gests incinerated by a sudden explosion of blue flames.

    Johnnathan and Sander were engaging in a heated battle. Sander was covered by strong blazes and covered in several sword wounds, but still standing, fighting berserk against Johnnathan with his sickles covered in flames.

    Johnnathan: (Bloody hell. Most of the times I would have won by now. How many liters of blood must I take out of him until he drops dead?)

    Sanders then starts retaliating. He delivers an attack with his two sickles that Johnnathan counters by cutting his forehead. After that, Sander pushes him back with a fiery swing.

    Johnnathan: (No matter how much I cut him, he does not seem to slow down. And those flames...Those are like an armor. I can't seem to cause any damage if I don't put some good dark juice on it....I must be careful to preserve my magic, but this is just ridiculous.)

    Sander then charged toward him with a headbut. Johnnathan strikes with his swords and stops him.

    Johnnathan: Guuuuh....

    Sander: Gwooooo!

    Sander then pushes Johnnathan back with his sheer strenght.

    Johnnathan: Guh. Those flames are too hot...

    Sander tries to attack him with his sickle, but from out of nowhere a red beam hits him before he could deliver a blow.

    Johnnathan: What the bloody hell...Oh.

    He suddenly remember he was in Dark Synchro.

    Johnnathan: Huuuh...Yeah. And I believe you four also know about it, doesn't it you landlubbers?

    Sheldon: I don't know who you are, but I would like you to break me an ice.

    Dafadel: Hahaha...Sorry grannie, it's just that I never felt so alive in years!

    Aradele sneaks behind Johnnathan and attacks with his scythe, but Johnnathan blocks with his sword by putting it on his back.

    Johnnathan: I knew that already.

    Johnnathan: Yeah, about that. This party is about to have more uninvited guests.

    Aradele: Heh! So be it. Nothing...Nothing will stop me from taking all of you meddling bastards!

    Dafadel: Friends?...Are you hitting on my grandma?

    Heinrich:....Yeah, kid. Thanks for pointing the obvious. What you gonna do about it?

    Dafadel: Well, actually it's not really my problem that-

    Vanessa: Say...do you want to kiss?

    Heinrich: F-for real?

    Vanessa: For real.

    Heinrich: Alright then. Dig it on!

    Vanessa: Gladly.

    She holds him in the hair and gives a headbut on him.

    Heinrich: Ouch!

    She then slams his face into the ground, digging it down to the earth.

    Vanessa: Heh. How about that, Ruby? I bet you and your brother felt that.

    Dafadel: Was this about your back again?

    Heinrich: Uuuurgh...Why no one done nothing about it?

    Johnnathan: You kinda deserved it.

    Escobar: By the way, is that Giant Black Artic Salmon's Skin Coats. My clothes are made from the same material.

    Coela: Mine's is from the Rainbow Tropical Eel.

    Vanilla: What is with fish's skin clothes? Is that even possible?

    Aladdin: Most importantly, you still didn't told us what a wandering ministrel is doing here? Do you have any reason to aid us.

    Escobar then starts to play some light tunes.

    Escobar: I was trying to calm the beast with my song. That's all.

    Dafadel: How do you plan to calm down a giant mollusk with music?

    Escobar: Do you even asked yourself what the Kraken really is?

    Coela: A giant octopus jerk that destroys your homeland.

    Escobar: No....That as well, but not the real picture. Have you heard what happened about Neptune?

    Aladdin: The First King of Neptunia? What of it?

    Escobar: He didn't really died you know. In fact, he is still alive.

    Vanessa: Nonsense. Neptune perished after the Second Immortal War.

    Escobar: A Great Immortal that control the waters that covers the planet wouldn't be so easily killed. The truth is, for making sure he survived the Immortal Flames, his spirit became one with the ocean.

    Aladdin: What are you blabbering about it? You saying Neptune and the Ocean are one of the same?

    Escobar: It was the intention. But such a move had a price.

    Vanilla: A price?

    Escobar: By fusing his spirit, he had to discard his physical body. With that, what remained of his physical shell became sentient without a mind of his own turning into a twisted critter.

    Johnnathan:...Wait, you don't say...The Kraken?

    Escobar: Yeah. The Kraken is actually Neptune's former body.

    Chapter 193: Dangerous Waters.

    Aladdin: So let me get this straight. Kraken and Neptune used to be one being?

    Johnnathan: And somehow you can calm it with music?

    Escobar: Yeah, that's pretty much the idea.

    Heinrich: And how do you know all that?

    Escobar: I happen to come from a long lineage of musicians that once were the Royal Musicians of Neptunia.

    Coela: Oh. I heard about them.

    Escobar: We always have been sort of nomads. We all passed ancient songs from the mermaids for the sake of calming the beast in case of need to one generation to another.

    Dafadel: Well, didn't worked very well didn't it?

    Escobar: Yeah, isntead of putting it to sleep, it actually just made it more mad. I guess the next step would to slay it when it awakes it.

    Johnnathan: Are you somehow asking us to do it.

    Escobar: Well, I heard tales that your Pearl is inside the Kraken so...I guess you have no choice on the matter.

    Johnnathan: Hmmm....Henry, we never once slaughtered a large octopus didn't we?

    Heinrich: Well, we should start it somewhere. Aladdin.

    Aladdin: On it.

    He does a move with his hands and teleports them from out of the cave.

    Meanwhile outside of the cavern, the water took Sheldon and the others outside and they were all soaked.


    Sheldon then wakes up and stands on front of Sander that was fallen to the ground.

    Sheldon: Well, now that's some shitty development. And what about you guys?

    The other rogues were unconscious as well.

    Sheldon: Good grief. Come on, dudes. You guys are rogue vampires. What is some real cold water to you guys?


    He hears what appears to be a herd of wild animals approaching. He turns back to the cave and see a angry mob of Werewolves and Capraexes coming closer to it.

    Sheldon:....Oh shit, this is bad.

    The beastmen comes closer and closer.

    Sheldon:....I know. I can figure it out. You lot are simple people. Your boss is all out cold and you wanna have a bone to pick with me. But really, do you really think I could do that? Besides, it's not like he is dead or something. Come on, let us go.


    Sheldon:...Urgh. This isn't going anywhere. Well, I can always fly awy from here anytime, but....

    He looks at his fellow rogues behind him.

    Sheldon:...Know what, I'm already pretty much breakfast's pancake to Raven at this point, so no point being hasty.

    He summons his dagger and gets on his fighting stance.

    Sheldon: Bring on you filthy filly funny fuckers....

    On the waters near the South Pole, Johnnathan and his friends were aboard the Vitoria thanks to Aladdin's teleportation towards a stormy area. Only Nikolai was absent there.

    Gerald: That's quite the teleporter they got there.

    Johnnathan: Thinking about something, Commander?

    Gerald:...You know, I went to scare away a few beastmen and I didn't expect to be in this situation.

    Aladdin: I can always send you back.

    Gerald: Hmm...Not in the mood.

    Edward: What about the Gloria?

    West: Nik said he was gonna take care for us...again.

    Tenkai: He is a pretty handy.

    Johnnathan: Where are we going again?

    Escobar: To where the Kraken always goes after he awakens. To Neptunia.

    Coela:...Isn't not like that last time we went there.

    Escobar: The power of the Great Immortal of the Ocean is terrifying indeed.

    Johnnathan then notices Dafadel hanging on one of the shrouds looking at the storm ahead.

    Johnnathan: Is there something unusual, Dafadel?

    Dafadel: No. It's just...it's a first to me.

    Johnnathan: You never travelled on a ship?

    Dafadel: Of course I did it. I travelled to the world a lot. But something feels different now.

    Johnnathan: Maybe it's because you are on a pirate ship.

    Dafadel: A pirate ship? Is it really that different?

    Johnnathan: The way that this ship moves just gives that sort of feeling you know. I wish we were on my ship though.

    Vanessa then watches the two at a distance with a smile.

    Vanessa: Must be nice being young and mortal.

    Suddenly they feel weird movements by the waves hitting the ship.

    Coela: W-What is going on?

    Escobar: Probably that huge wave coming right behind us.

    Behind them a huge tidal wave was coming from behind.

    Coela: What the?! How?! There is no way there could be a wave coming from behind us! The current is going the other way!

    Vanilla: Whatever the case, we gotta stop it. Snowey!

    She summons the Snow Fairy and it freezes the whole wave before it his them.

    Johnnathan: Well, that was close.

    Escobar: It seems the Kraken knows we are near them.


    Johnnathan: Yeah?

    Florencia: I think I found it.

    She points at a gaint whirlpool in the middle of the ocean. When they approached, the clouds were dark and the winds were raging.

    West:...Okay, it sure is a nasty whirlpool and the enviroment is sinister, but it can be anything.

    Then from the center of the whirlpool, eight giant tentacles appeared from it and a colossal body surfaced. It was like a mountain in the middle of the ocean. It was a titanic octopus that had a shell-like helmet full of spikes on it''s head with empty white eyes and a mouth full of fangs.

    Johnnathan:....Man. We need a bigger ship.
