    Chapter 12: Chance Encounter.
    Hidden:


    Sailing through the south seas, the Gloria was on her way to Ra in the Steel Continent. They took the direction that passed through the south of the continent towards the northeast part.

    Inside the captain's cabin of the ship, Johnnathan was discussing with Drake and Aladdin.

    "You know, I appreciate heving my own ship, but I wished you two would consult me first." Said Johnnathan.

    "Just how you consultated us when you left alone to Liampool?" Said Aladdin.

    "Hey! I just did it! But I lied!"

    "You are not making things easier for you little brother." Said Drake. "This was supossed to be a surprise, but things went not the way we expected. Ah bloody hell, you already deserves it since you have your own cats now."

    "Fine, fine. By the way, nice room this one. It's like a five star hotel here."

    "That's why it took quite a lot. Nikolai basically built a second Vitoria. And just like her, it is made of alloy of Darkanium."

    "We really need to treat that Gremlim a little better."

    "Well, I won't." Said Aladdin.

    "But why didn't him and the others came along?"

    "See this as some sort of test." Said Drake. "Me and Aladdin will judge you if you have the guts to lead your own little gang."

    "And you do that by sending us to an expedition to find a relic no one saw for aeons?"

    "What can I say? Hybrid-style exam, bro."

    Meanwhile on the deck, West was doing jabs in the air, speeding the movements as it goes the routine.

    Edward and Florencia were watching from afar from a higher floor.

    "What is he doing?" Asked Edward.

    "Warming up, most likely." Said Florencia. "Even the strongest of predators needs to work out their claws before the hunt."

    "I was expecting a more tough regime than just doing punches in the air."

    "I mean he is thrusting those arms faster than a regular human...Those thick and rough arms..."

    "What was that right now?"

    "Ah! Nothing! Just thinking out loud..."

    "Hey, Florencia!" Shouted Johnnathan that appeared from a door next to them. "Could you come here for minute. I need to talk to you."

    "I'm on my way."

    "And Eddie could you check the surroundings in the crow's nest?"

    "M-Me? I kinda have fear of heigh-"

    "Great! I knew I could count on you!"

    Johnnathan and Florencia left, leaving Edward alone dumbfounded.

    "...Okay. I mean, it's not really thaaaat high."

    Johnnathan then took Florencia to his room and explained the situation.

    "Wow. What a nice brother you have." Sarcastically said Florencia.

    "Well at least they are here."

    "Is there anything else you wish to tell me?"

    "You see, since we are a proper crew now we need a little organization in our group. So since I am the captain, I would like to make you my First-Mate."

    "You First-Mate? Are you sure about that?"

    "I just looked at everyone else and saw you were more qualified...It took like 30 seconds to think."

    "I am certainly not against it, but I can be kind of a prick. Perhaps you prefer a more approachable one like West?"

    "First, West is one of the few guys that I don't wanna argue about it and second, a prick is exactly what I am looking at."

    "Could you elaborate?"

    "If someone is gonna be the second-in-command here then I want someone who see things differently then me. Contrary even. There were a lot of times me and the others left a mess because at a certain point we let Aladdin be the boss."

    "That's a very sound logic."

    "Also you appears to be very knowledgeable."

    "Well, I do not wanna brag, buuuuut I did had the well-know form of education the fairies possess it."

    "Oh? How does it distinct from the vampire form?"

    "Ah. I forgot. You had a vampire mother, right? Well I can assure it wasn't harsh."

    "Calling harsh wouldn't do justice."

    "Anyway I can't ignore being praised like this. I fully accept being your first-mate, Captain Highlander."

    "Just Johnny is fine. By the way can we call you Flor?"

    "Sure. That's how my acquaintances back hime called me. If we work hard, perhaps we'll exceed Drake and Aladdin."

    "...That wouldn't be particulary hard."

    Later, Vanilla was standing in front of another door inside the ship.

    "Aladdin, sir? You there?" Asked Vanilla knocking the door.

    "What?" Said Aladdin who came out without his turban showing a black shoulder-lenght hair. He was also topless showing his well-toned torse that made Vanilla blush of embarassment and cover her face.

    "Kyaaaaa! What are you doing?! You can't show your body like this with a fair maiden nearby!"

    "Jeez, what are you? A brat?" Aladdin went back inside to wore the rest of his usual outfit and returned. "So what is it?"

    "Oh. He totally looks different." Thought Vanilla. "Anyway, I was thinking...could you tell me why did you became a pirate?"

    "Are you really that interested? Just like Chemira I am not that much of a deal as Salomeh."

    "As a spellcaster of GMA, I really feel that I need to know now that I have the chance to talk to a Miracle."

    "...Tch. Look, long story short I was on bad terms with the academy so I left. They weren't very hot of having a half-blood freak like me in there."

    "That is whole nonsense!"

    "Is it? Have you seen a single Hybrid in there when you were a student? What do you learn about me outside of the fact I'm a Hybrid?"

    "I-Isn't because they are pretty rare?"

    "Listen up, kid. By a human point of view, a Hybrid is a vampire pretending to be a human. And a vampire in other hand sees a Hybrid as the opposite. The less they know about me, the better to them."

    "But that's...kind of unfair."

    "Life is unfair girl."

    "I guess so...But another thing. You are a Warlock-Type, right?"

    "Pretty much."

    "But...I don't wanna get much into it, but...You have quite the build for not being more of a brawler."

    "Well, I thought Johnnathan told about it, but I guess I can give some more insight. You see, unlike Johnnathan and Drake, I can't use my magic to enhance my physical abilities."

    "Oh. I think I got it."

    "But I can still neat stuff like this." Aladdin snaps his finger and a small black elephant made out of a dark smog appears.

    "Oh? Is that a Familiar? It's so cute!"

    "Salomeh said the same thing."

    Later that day, the Gloria just crossed the eastern part of the sea surrounding the Steel Continent. On the deck, Johnnathan was looking in the horizon while Florencia was looking into a map.

    "Brrr! It's always cold around this part." Said Johnnathan. "Why the hell did we had to past here and not in the North?"

    "It's a safe route to avoid the storm from before."

    "Like he never faced a storm before...What is that?"

    Johnnathan spots a large ship at a distance.

    "It appears to be a Blitzreignian Warship." Said Florencia.

    "That's a nice eye you have. Do you think we should change courses?"

    "It appears it is heading far east. Let's see if they leave us alone. After all they do not recognise this ship, right?"

    "Good thinking and-Bloody hell! What is that?!" Johnnathan notices Edward tied up in the top of the mast. "Who put that imbecile in there?!"

    "Man, I don't have a clue. Oh yeah. That was me." Said West who appeared.

    "By Mother Nature, West! What did Edward done to deserve that?" Asked Florencia.

    "He asked to be tied up in there so he wouldn't fall."

    "And you agreed it? That fool! I'll take the poor boy out of there."

    "Leave it to me, Flor. I was the one who put he in there in the first place." Said Johnnathan who climbed through the main mast.

    "Those boys sure have weird ideas sometimes." Said Florencia.

    "So Florencia...I was thinking you could help me with something." Said West.

    "Hmm? Curious. Never though a Werewolf would ask me for anything but I am all ears."

    "I heard Fairies are really good at teaching, right? I was thinking you could teach me something."

    "Oh. Interesting. May I ask the subject? Is it Magic or-"

    "Read."

    "Huh?"

    "I want to learn of how to read and write."

    "As in...Basic Reading?"

    "Well, yeah. You see I...never had the chance."

    "...Well this is a first. I mean, it isn't a hard subject, but it is certainly is so far below my capabilities that it may prove a challenge."

    "I see. If you can't do it then I wouldn't force you-"

    "Ah! No, no, no! I wouldn't mind really. But is there any reason for that?"

    "I wanted to...write a letter."

    "A letter? Well, whatever the case I am glad to help."

    "Can we start tonight?"

    "Sure! Are you in a hurry or something?"

    "You could say that."

    Shortly, Johnnathan arrived to where Edward was tied up. He was dizzy and green with nausea.

    "Sooo...Eddie, how is it doing?"

    "Huh...Oh. Hey cap'n. I am just...Looking around it."

    "Yeah. Sure. Look, I wasn't expecting this kind of event so I'll just take you out of there and-

    "Nope. Nopenopenope. I think it would be better if we arrive at the Steel Continent and-

    "It will take like another day at least to get there."

    "That's...That's okay. Let Florencia appears with my lunch and-

    "Stop fooling around!"

    Johnnathan then starts to untie him.

    "Aaaaaaah! No! No! I will fall! I will fall!"

    Meanwhile on the Warship far from there, Hadol just caught a glimpse of the ship.

    "What the? A ship."

    Hadol then took a telescope and took a look at it.

    "What's the matter Colonel?" Said Hildr who just arrived.

    "Taking a look of that ship. Piracy is fairly common in this part of the sea. Was it really the good idea to take this route?"

    "There was a terrible storm on the usual route. We do not wanna take risks."

    "Anyway, I do not recognize that ship. If it was black I could swear it was The Vitoria, but that doesn't seem the case."

    "If it is not a Rogue vessel then forget it about it. We do not wanna have any useless scramble."

    "Oh boy. They sure are giving that boy over there a hard time stuck on the top of their main mast. He certainly has a fear of heights."

    "Urgh! Pirates sure are the worst."

    Hildr then takes the telescope.

    "Huh. I think I've seen that pirate and that red jacket somewhere else. And that prisoner in there...Wait...Brother?!

    Chapter 13: Thunderbolt.

    Hidden:


    With a wrathful look in her face, Hildr toss the telescope away straight at Hadol's face.

    "Ouch!"

    "Damn you, Red Beast....What are you doing to my little brother?!"

    Her body releases a spark and she starts running on thin air straight to the Gloria.

    "Hm?" West then hear something at a distance. "Is someone else hearing the sound of thunderstorms?"

    "What are you talking about it?" Said Florencia. "The skies are clear as a white canvas."

    Then like a lightning strike, Hildr appears thrusting his spear at Johnnathan. A few seconds before she attacks, Johnnathan felt an urge to kill him and manages to block at the right timing, but he is set to the gaff below.

    "Huh? Was that...Hildr?!" Said Edward as he see Hildr goes after Johnnathan.

    "Okay...Okay. I didn't seen this coming. What's gives Hildr? We didn't do nothing...Today." Said Johnnathan.

    "Silence! As if doing common pirate work was enough, you decide to torture my younger brother?!"

    "...What? When did I do that? You have a brother?"

    "Don't play dumb with me. I seen you doing just now!"

    "Hold up...Are you talking bout him?"

    "Yes! Him! Edward Howitz!"

    "...But that would imply you are his sister."

    "Y-Yeah? So?"

    "..It's kind of underwhelming knowing he is related to you by blood. Because you are great, but he kind of sucks."

    "Huh?! You...You fiend! You dare mock him?!"

    Hildr starts swinging her electric spear arpund Johnnathan while he struggles to dodge while mantaining his balance.

    "H-Hold on! He is a good dude and all, but well...He is kind of avarage."

    "He is perfectly avarage! He might not be popular with girls and a mediocre student, but he is still my only Eddling."

    "Pffft! Hahahahaha!" Laughed West who could hear from below. "She calls him Eddling? Wahahahaha!"

    "I can hear you laugh down there, West!" Shouted Edward.

    "Hey guys!" Said Vanilla who arrived atop a black small elephant. "Did I lost something?"

    "Edward's Older Sister is Valkyrie." Said West.

    "...Edward is the Valkyrie's brother?!"

    "Yeah, shocking."

    Meanwhile, Johnnathan is still struggling against Hildr.

    "Take that and that, you half-breed monster!" Said Hildr.

    "Okay, no need to be mean here." Johnnathan them jumped over her and delivered a cut with his swords that damaged her cap.

    "Uuuurgh! You will not be getting away with this! Thunder Lance!"

    She shoots a lightning bolt at Johnnathan that flied doing zig-zags at him that he dodges by bending his body backwards.

    "Damn. I forgot that you can be such a pain in the ass." Said Johnnathan who charged his sabers with Darkness. "Red Spiral!"

    He shoots a Red Spiral at her. Hildr avoids by jumping high in the air by charging her legs with electricity.

    "I know all your stupid tricks by now, Red Beast!" She dives straight at him with her spear charged with electricity, but Johnnathan manages to block with one of his sabers.

    "You know, I think you should consider your brother's feelings in this situation because honestly if he didn't wanted I wouldn't mind him out of my ship."

    "Like hell he is here by his own will!" Hildr starts to attack Johnnathan with multiple thrusts of her spear, but Johnnathan manages to fend it off with a few scratches on his jacket and a rather large one on his face.

    "Tch. You got better." Said Johnnathan touching his wound.

    "I was always better!" Hildr charged with her spear once again, but Johnnathan manages to duck at the last second and charge his swords.

    "Red Upper!" He delivers an upper attack that slices Hildr in her torso and pushed her back.

    "Aaaaah! Sis!" Panicked Edward while Johnnathan started to untie him.

    "Okay, now where I was-"

    "You fiend!"

    Edward kicks Johnnathan with anger and the two of them falls.

    "What did the hell that idiot done?!" Said West as the two of them falls, but at the right time a blue cube that looked like gelatin appears below them and the two are saved from a nasty fall. It was a water spell from Vanilla.

    "Whew! That was a close one." Said Vanilla.

    "You jerk!" Edward starts to punch Johnnathan repeatedly. "You can't do that to the sisters of others, you-"

    Unfazed Johnnathan pushes back Edward with a single punch.

    "Relax you dolt. Your sister is fine." Said Johnnathan as Hildr reappears by landing between the two like a lightning strike. She had part of her shirt ripped off by Johnnathan's attack revealing black breastplate.

    "Hey! What is going on out here-" Said Drake who went outside and laid eyes on Hildr. "Ohoho! If isn't my favourite girl!"

    "Uuurgh! Of course you would be here." Said Hildr in a bad mood.

    Drake then started to deeply observe her at a distance.

    "....What are you looking at?" Said Hildr.

    "When was the last time we saw each other? Because I can tell someone grew one size ever since the last time. And it was my favourite spot. Heehe."

    "W-What?! What are you?! How do you?!" Hildr panicked trying to cover her bosom with her arms.

    "Uuuuh...What is he talking about Hildr?" Said Edward confused at her behavior.

    "Eddling! You okay?!" Said Hildr extending her hand towards Edward. "It's me! Your sister! I've been worried sick ever since you disappeared. Come, I'll save you!"

    "Uhhh...Thanks, but no thanks."

    "Huh? What do you mean?"

    "Look, I know I have be kind of a jerk and all that, but I wish to stay here."

    "What? Did they brainwashed you?! It was that Desert Prince, wasn't it?!"

    "No! It just that I feel necessary here."

    "No he isn't it."

    "Shut up, West!"

    "M-Miss Howitz..." Said Vanilla who carefully approached her and bowed in respect. "Allow me to introduce myself. Vanilla Sundae, Spellcaster of GMA."

    "GMA, huh? Certificate." Said Hildr.

    "Yes! Here." Vanilla showed her a certificate of Gel's Graduation.

    "Huh. Well seems legit. Care to explain why are you in this specific place and time?"

    "Very well. I was on my quest when I came in contact with Edward on...another ship when he generously accepted to be my escort. And unexpected things happened one after another that now we are travelling with the Red Beast Pirates because we were desperate for a vessel."l."

    "...And how do you explain him being tied to the top of the mast like a pinwheel?"

    "Oh. He just wanted to get rid of his fear of heights. It didn't go well."

    "...I knew it.." Hildr gave a clod glare at Edward that gave him a chill in his spine, but then she started to cry rivers."I always knew it you had a heart of gold, Eddling!"

    "Man, what a load of-" Said West before he was interrupted by a punch from Florencia.

    "Well, now that was already settled, how about we forgot this little incident?" Said Edward.

    "Denied." Replied Hildr.

    "Wait, what?!"

    "I appreciate your intentions, but there is no way I will let you risk your life like this. Just return to Nova and be safe back home."

    "....It's always like that, isn't it?"

    "Eh?"

    "You are just like them, aren't you, sis?"

    "What are you talking about it?"

    "Everything! Everything is wrong with me, isn't it?!"

    "Woah, looooud." Commented Florencia as the rest of the crew watches turning their heads to the side as each of the siblings starts talking.

    "You think I'm a failure, right?" Said Edward. "That I just good at being stuck between four walls and look cute like a Yorkshire, huh?!"

    "This is nonsense!" Said Hildr. "I never thought that you were-"

    "Then why the hell are you acting I can't look after myself?! Look, you have better things to do don't you? So how about you go do whatever you have to do and forget for 15 minutes you have a brother?!"

    "But-"

    "Now!"

    "...Edward, hold it for a bit. I need you to take a nap." Hildr then prepares herself to hit Edward in the head with the electrecuted blunt of her spear.

    "Aaaah! Waitwaitwaitwaaaaaaait!"

    "That's enough." Said Aladdin who instantly appeared next to Hildr with his index finger pointed at her forehead.

    "Huh?! Even you-"

    "Begone."

    A dark sand tornado appeared around her and shortly after she disappears.

    "Sis?"

    "She is gone, kid." Said Aladdin.

    "You....Murderer!" Edward goes straight on into Aladdin with a electric fist, but Aladdin stops his with a headbutt."Ooff!"

    "Relax. I just sent her back."

    "At that distance? Impressive." Commented Florencia. "But won't she like return?"

    "Hehehehe....Hehehehehe...." Aladdin starts to laugh in a notorious silence.

    Meanwhile back at the warship, Hildr just appeared out of nowhere in the deck.

    "What?! Where...Where am I?"

    "Don't you recognize your own ship?" Said Walther that was there with a cup of tea.

    "Walther?! Where...Where is the Pirate Ship?!"

    "Oh. You mean the red one? It suddenly disappeared."

    "Huh?!" Hildr started to look around and couldn't see the Gloria anymore. "B-B-But it was right over there!"

    "Yeah, it did feel weird, but I guess the truth is...This ship might have been moved a little bit south."

    "Are you kidding me?! How can a whole ship be transported like that?"

    "Probably someone who can use quite a lot of magic."

    "No....Damn you....DESERT PRIIIIIIIIIIIIINCE!"

    Chapter 14: Venomous Tusk

    Hidden:


    Atop the clouds, the Death Raven floats on the skies. Inside the ship, Raven was enjoying tossing darts at a target hanging on the wall.

    "Brooooooooo!" Shouted Chill who rushed inside his room and made Raven miss the bullseye. Chill then starts to crawl over Raven's body while he seems to not care. "Bro! Bro! Bro! Bro! Bro! Bro! Bro! Bro!"

    "....Yes? Chill?"

    "A ship is approaching Ra!"

    "....So? A lot of ships passes thorugh there."

    "But....The Red Beast is on it."

    "Oh? Is that so?"

    He picks a squid creature from an aquarium and gives to Chill to snack on it.

    "I knew this would come someday." Raven picks a device that looked like a gold scarab beetle and press the red button on top of it, putting the device on his ear next.

    "....Hello? Who is there?" Spoke a voice coming from the beetle.

    "It's me. Raven."

    "Who?"

    "....Uuurugh. Corvus."

    "Ooooooooh! Man, it has been ages! What gives?!"

    "Well, here is the thing. Some dude with a red eye is about to arrive in there. He want the Fire Key."

    "Ah! That! Well, I guess I could move those old bones after a while. By the way, can we hang out after this? We could like upset some humans together."

    "Eeeeeeh....I already do that like every week."

    "Man, whatever. I just gonna bring some sweet bread one of those days. See you!"

    The beetle turns off and Raven puts it down.

    "I kinda do pity you Johnny-boy. It's not everyone that fought the Pharaoh and lived to tell the tale."

    Later that day, on the middle of the desert, a caravan of camels is approaching an oasis surrounded by several tents and houses. In those camels, Johnnathan and the others were riding wearing robes for travelling the desert.

    "We rest here." Said Aladdin who got out of his camel. "Keep yourselves together."

    The rest of them follows Aladdin and he guides them to a house bigger than the others. Inside it was like a tavern filled with wanderers.

    "So I'll take the bait here." Said Edward. "What is this place? I thought Ra was...Lost."

    "And it is." Said Aladdin. "Everything on those lands are just an union of scavengers and merchants. These lands still have treasures and resources far desired by adventurous folks. And with them, buglars and killers. So watch your back."

    "I appreciate the warning. But it does not look like much. This place is like...a blue dot in the desert."

    "It isn't the only place. There are many oasis and some rivers around that some sort of society was created. All of them ruled by a rather complex network of local influentals."

    "You seem to know a lot of this place." Said West.

    "I was raised in a similar enviroment. And places like this are paradise for outcasts like me and Drake."

    "Alright then. So? What's the plan?" Asked Edward.

    "What plan?"

    "Eeeeer...Aren't we supossed to find a key?"

    "If by 'we' you mean you guys except for me and Drake then you guys fo find."

    "Huh? Huuuuuuuuh?!"

    "I am still a bit unsure of your company so I want some practical proof. Besides I still need to punish Johnny in some way."

    "Sorry guys." Said Johnnathan.

    "Don't bother it. We can get this through." Said Florencia.

    "So you guys are just gonna wait up here."

    "Yeah. We are giving you guys one week." Said Drake. "If you guys fail, we are sending you to Wildland."

    "Isn't that the place with the Lagomoths?" Asked Edward.

    "Yes."

    "Dude. It's your brother."

    "Eh. He had it worse."

    "Don't bother Edward. It's kind of a Hybrid thingie." Said Johnnathan.

    "Speaking of relatives, you should have told me you were Hildr's brother." Drake puts his arm over Edward's shoulders and pokes his face. "There are a looot of things you could tell me."

    "...Like what?"

    "What kind of underwear does she wear?"

    "G-Go to hell, you creep!"

    "Hey eaaaaasy. It's not like she is NOT crazy about me. I mean, you wouldn't? Oh well, I guess I should figure it out myself."

    "You keep your filthy hands off her..."

    "Riiiiiight, fine. Well, I guess I'll just try to find some dancers to entertain me here. And if I don't then I guess I'll have to look for Hildr in my dreams tonight."

    Drake leaves as Edward hisses like a snake at him.

    "Very well, then." Aladdin hands Johnnathan a bag of gold. "Go buy some supplies with this. If you don't want to go to Wildland, I suggest you haste yourself. What? Are you still here? Hurry up already!"

    "I love you too, man." Replied Johnnathan.

    Later on the five of them were travelling in the desert on feet. Johnnathan was looking at a map while West and Edward were carrying the supplies with West having the bigge It was the end of the afternoon and the sun was already setting it.

    "Urgh. Should I remind you guys that I was raised on a cold enviroment?" Said Vanilla. "The desert is not my element!"

    "You weren't obliged to come along if I remember correctly." Said West.

    "Hey! No need to be rude! It's like you don't really want me here."

    "Easy, Vanilla." Said Florencia who was floating. "He is just concerned about your well-being. If you really need, maybe you could ask for him to carry you in his back. I mean, a young girl like you is not much to a healthy, strong and vigorous Werewolf like him, right West?"

    "Uuuuh...Vigorous?"

    "Ooops! Forget the last part."

    "Well, I wouldn't mind if a certain someone carried me." Thought Vanilla.

    "It will be night soon." Said Johnnathan. "Deserts are rather cold at night. So I guess it's a plus to you, Vanilla."

    "I am more concerned of how the hell are we supossed to find a lost kingdom in this place." Said West.

    "Second Aladdin we need to arrive next to a golden owl."

    "Where the hell we'll find an owl in the desert. And made out of gold?!"

    "He told me to keep track to northwest. I trust his judgement."

    Then night soon came and they decided to do rest and build a camp next to group of rocks. Vanilla created a bonfire that kept everyone warm.

    "Your magic abilities are very useful." Said Florencia.

    "Teehee. I can even use some cooling magic to help with the heat."

    "Then why were you complaining earlier?"

    "I still don't like the desert because of the sand, jerk. Bleeeh!"

    "As of now we are pretty far from that Oasis already." Said Florencia. "Will they even find us when the time runs out?"

    "Don't understimate a Hybrid." Said Johnnathan. "Specially a Warlock who knows how to walk in a desert."

    "I am more concerned on where do we go from here." Said West.

    "May I have the map?" Said Florencia.

    "Sure." Johnnathan lends over the map.

    "Hmmm....There are some landmarks nearby. Should we look for it?"

    "I can do that. I can see pretty good in the dark."

    "You can count on me as well." Said West.

    "I was expecting that three of us to stay here. Couldn't you do that, West?" Said it West.

    "I really don't wanna babysit anyone."

    "Dude. We can hear you guys." Said Edward. "And...you think we can't look after ourselves?"

    "Not at all....Vanilla can, but we don't wanna be a jerk to let her look after you in the middle of nowhere."

    "You son of a-"

    "Now, now. He is just joking Edward." Said Vanilla trying to calm down the two of them.

    "Well, it can't be helped. I'll stay with them. After all, a fairy in the middle of the desert at night isn't right."

    "So I guess it is just me and the captain." Said West. "What is the high of the night to two night creatures, am I right, cap'n?"

    "Yeah, sure. If you have vampire genes in you, then it is better use them. Let's go."

    The two of them leaves to explore the surrounding area.

    "Honestly, Johnnathan is not very considerate to himself." Said Vanilla. "As the Captain, he should have sent another one with West."

    "Eh. I kinda like that about him." Said Florencia.

    "...Yeah, me too."

    "By the way...I am awfully tired. If you two would mind, I'll rest for a little bit." Florencia picked a blanket and went inside a tent.

    "Bah! Suuuure, if you aren't anything but a human you need to get yourself watched." Complained Edward. "I can fight my own battles."

    "...I doubt it."

    "Ack! Come on! We are on the same team here!"

    "Yep. We are all Red Beast Pirates here. I mean, I am just tagging along for now."

    "Still, I am done of being a stepped like a rug."

    "Oh come on, Edward. No one thinks you are a rug....Maybe West, but at least I don't."

    "By the way, don't you wanna go sleep with Florencia?"

    "That's okay. I am fine."

    "Come to think of it, I have no idea what time it is. Or how much time has it passed. Yaaaawn. I guess this will take a while."

    "....You can rest for a while if you want."

    "No way! I couldn't forgive myself if something happened to you."

    "It's fine. If something happens, I will scream real loud."

    "Well, that would call Flor and maybe West and Johnny. Okay then...Maybe I'll just close my eyes for a second and....and...." Edward closes his eyes and turns off in an instant. A little later, he wakes up. "Ooof! Damn. I felt like I passed out. Was I really that tired....Huh?"

    He looks around and notices that Vanilla is nowhere to be seen. Only her staff was laying on the ground.

    "Vanilla? Vanilla! Where-where did you went?!"

    Edward looks around and see prints on the sand that looked like it came from some sort of animal's paw.

    "What are those marks? They are like of some sort of beast. But...I think animal that would come would produce some sort of noise....Damnit! What is going on?!"

    He then looks at the tent that Florencia went and checked inside. She was still sleeping inside.

    "At least she is okay, but....No! I have to do this myself!"

    He starts following the tracks that went all the way to the north.

    "This doesn't makes any sense. It's almost like she simply vanished on thin air...Did I really slept at all? And those prints...They do look like it is from an animal, but why does it seems to be from something with two legs?"

    Soon he finds the ends of the tracks to a giant boulder in the middle of nowhere.

    "That's quite the distance...But it seems I found a dead end....Or did I?"

    He starts to touch at the boulder and gives a few knocks with his sword.

    "...This...isn't rock, isn't it?"

    He points his sword at the rock and shoots a small lightning bolt that covers the rock in sparks. Then he makes the rock floats by moving his sword revealing a hole in the ground.

    "I see. This is iron painted to be like a rock. Clever...This isn't the work of some sort of dumb animal."

    Edward then dives into the hole and after walking through a tunnel, finds what seems to be a warehouse filled with boxes and barrels.

    "A storage room? Let's see...Weapons and rations. For one person or two at most...Huh?!"

    He sees Vanilla nearly unconscious tied up on a chair with her mouth shut it with a cloth.

    "Vanilla!" Edward rushes at her and wakes her up by his shouting.

    "Watch out! It's a trap!" Said Vanilla as soon he removes the cloth covering her mouth as he was attacked by a striked from a large arm from the left.

    "Ouch!"

    "Kyaaaahahahaha! You got guts, boy." Edward sees a hyena walking in two legs with two long arms wearing a blue leather jacket and black pants. "I was expecting someone to come out, but I was not expecting someone to coming too soon. Specially you of all people."

    "Who...And what are you?"

    "What? You never saw a Hyena in your life, kid?"

    "Hyena?"

    "A Hyena is a Beast-type species well know from their scavenging habits." Said Vanilla. "They are common in deserts areas like here and Sherazia."

    "Kyahahaha! I like this girl. She knows her stuff."

    "Okay, one thing I learned." Said Edward with his eyes tearing. "But what I don't get it is what does taking Vanilla has to do with this."

    "You didn't figured out? Okay then. My name is Tusk. I am a slave trader."

    "S-Slave Trader?!" Shouted Edward. "But no one uses slaves for years!"

    "Kyaaahahaha! You are as innocent as your face says it. Do you really think there isn't some rich fellow that dirt their hands to make their lives easily? I sold soooooo many types of merchandise that I forgot track of how many lives I ruined."

    "Why are you doing this?!"

    "Why? Are you stupid? It's because it's lucrative. You see, I've been following you five ever since you left the Oasis. I never thought that just the Hybrid and the Werewolf would leave for a second. I got lucky. Do you know how much this little girl here is worthy?"

    "...Worthy?"

    "Young...Pretty....A rare white hair that I never saw...Proficient with magic...And probably a virgin. I was looking after the fairy at the start, but I am a safe type of guy. She would get the top price in an auction pretty easily.

    "A-Auction?" Said Vanilla with a terrified tone.

    "Yes, special snowflake. By the end of the week, you'll be a bride you want it or not."

    "You bastard." Said Edward. "Vanilla isn't an object you can just give it away!"

    "Well, well! The boy over there wants to be the damsel's brave hero. But what can a frail human like you even do-"Edward strikes Tusk by shooting a lightning bolt from his sword."Gaaaaaaaaah!"

    "Oh my." Said Vanilla in awe.

    "This is my last warning. Release. Her."

    "Kyeeehehehe...Okay...Let's talk for a second here....Not!" Tusk breathes a green breath at Edward that makes him dizzy.

    "Uuuuurgh...Why I am so...numb."

    "Edward! What's the matter?!" Shouted Vanilla.

    "You forgot to tell him one more thing about Hyenas, snowflake." Said Tusk with berries on his hand. "We can absorb certain properties of things we eat. This particular type of berry called Sweet Dreams has a toxin that gives a light paralysis making it easier for you to sleep."

    "So that's how you kidnapped me..."

    "But my favourite one...Is this." He eats a red berry and breathes a red breath that Edward manages to dodge, but as it covers a barrel, it dissolves it completely. "Fruit from the Monster Cactus. It emits such a strong bitter smell that most animals wouldn't even try to eat those. That's because of the light corrosive juice from inside it. Not too different from any sort of acid you find, but reaaaally strong in gas form."

    "That's worse than when I first met Johnnathan." Said Edward.

    Tusk starts to attack with his acid breath that Edward starts dodginh by covering his body in sparks and moving point to point at incredible speeds.

    "Shoot! Can't fight like this." A bit of the acid breath passes closer to Edward and his clothes started to melt and his shoulder burns. "Gaaaaah!"

    "I really don't wanna hurt you kid. I can't sell damaged property. So how about you lay down already. You see, you will never be a top grade material anyway."

    "I am...not? I'll show you then!" Edward closes his eyes and covers his body in sparks.

    "Hah! What does that can even do?" Tusk launches another aced breath, but Edward manages to pass the attack and delivers a blow into Tusk's shoulders. "Gah! How did you do that?!"

    Tusk starts to attack with his long arms trying to maul Edward, but he manages to avoid by fliping around. Edward then delivers a electric stab into Tusk that blows him away with a shockwave.

    "Gah! How did you got this tough?"

    "I see now." Said Vanilla that was paying attention to Edward and thought. "He is eletrecuting himself not to only keep himself awake, but boost his movements as well. That's clever, bold and all that, but...isn't risky and painful."

    "Alright, boy. You wanna play games?" Tusk breaks a nearby small box and picks a large black and yellow bettle. "Then I'll play your game!"

    Tusk then eats the whole bug and his body is covered in sparks.

    "What was that?" Said Vanilla.

    "A Tupan Bettle. A species native from Aurakarias. It's body holds the equivalent of an entire thunderstorm."

    Tusk takes two large sickles and starts attacking Edward, pushing him back with each strike. Edward gets cornered, but manages to roll to the sides and gain distance.

    "Something is weird. Why does it feels that you can see through me even though your eyes are closed? Well nevermind. I just gonna make sure you can still walk after I done with you!"

    He starts to release a fury of attacks, but Edward manages to block them off with his sword.

    "He is sensing them." Thought Vanilla. "The sparks of his body...they are ressonating with it's surroundings...Why does it feels the sparks are getting stronger?"

    "I'll finish this now! Face over 10 million volts of electricity! " Said Tusk that opened his mouth wide and a powerful blight came from inside. After that he releases a giant lightning bolt towards Edward who tried to defend with his sword. The lightning struck him releasing a powerful blight that blinded Vanilla for a while. Later when the attack was over, Edward was standing still with his sword releasing a silver blight.

    "Huh?!.....Huuuuuuh?! How did you...survived?!" Asked Tusk.

    "He....absorved it all of that." Said Vanilla.

    "Now...Take it back. Gungnir Dash!" Edward dashed like a lightning bolt and stabbed Tusk with his sword that delivered a powerful shockwave.

    "Gwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!" Tusk is launched away, passing through the walls of rock of the hideout. Edward then opened his eyes and went to Vanilla, cutting her ropes with a swift cut.

    "Heh. See that? I got him!" Said Edward with proud before passing out, falling on Vanilla's shoulders who got him quickly.

    "Edward....You really are something."

    Hidden:


    At night-time, Vanilla was carrying Edward, unconscious after the fight with Tusk.

    "Aff! I was trained for a lot of things, but this is something I was certainly not made for."

    Then, she see a small blight of fire at a distance.

    "Ah! Could it be?....Yes! Hold it a little longer Eddie. We are almost there."

    "Kehehehe...So close and yet so far."

    Tusk suddenly appears far behind them holding his sickles and his body all burned.

    "No...No way. How?"

    "Nothing personal kid, but things have been very thight nowadays."

    "How are you so persistent? You clearly had it too much of a beating with that one attack."

    "You know what the Hyenas are really know for? Survival. Even the dawn of days, my race managed to survive with besically the leftovers of others. With time we learned to take advantage of the situation in hand. Ever since that Raven guy decided to fill this world with his rogues, even trying to get the good stuff through the dubious route has been difficult. The entire black market world became a relic of the past, but that just make my job more valuable than it is."

    "Even if it kills you?"

    "Heh. If I die, someone else will take my place. There is no such a thing as the perfect world you really wish it existed, snowflake. It has always been a dog eat dog world even before Raven. Maybe you had a life of sweetness and comfort, but there is always someone out there turning a life of another a hell. Just like I am about to do with you right now!"

    Tusk run towards Vanilla. She reacted by shooting a fireball out of her hand, but Tusk dispels it away with a swing of his sickle. As he gets close enough of the two of them, an ray of light pierces his shoulders.

    "What?!"

    Then West and Johnnathan appears from behind and they both kick Tusk away, knocking him out cold.

    "You two alright?!" Said Florencia, worried about the two of them.

    "Flor! Johnny! West!"

    "Why my name for last?"

    "Not now, West." Said Johnnathan. "She just had a rough night."

    "Fine, then. By the way who...And what is that dog thingie."

    "A Hyena. They have a bad reputation of being smugglers. I bet that one was a slave trader."

    "Yes, that's what he was."

    "Taking over the freedom of an innocent? Despicable." Said Florencia. "Anyway, I would ask Edward, why didn't he called me and the others, but I guess we can't do it right now."

    "Ah...Can we leave him out of this? I think he had it enough for a day."

    "....Yeah, can't reallu get mad at him. After all I did heard that someone has been following our tracks."

    "And you didn't said anything because?"

    "I understimated him. Never expected a cunning one like him. Sorry, my bad."

    "Well, what is it matter is everything is fine." Said Johnnathan. "Anyway, I think found the "owl" thingie."

    The night passed and another day rose. Edward woke up inside a tent with Vanilla sleeping above a blanked next to him.

    "...Oh....Oh? What...What is going on?" Asked Edward who then woke up Vanilla.

    "Edward!" Vanilla quickly hugged Edward. "Thank goodness, you are alright."

    "Y-Yeah...I am now."

    "By the way, it seems they found that owl thing. Come on! Let's hurry!"

    "Right away."

    They soon arrive at the top of a dune with a wide open space at sight with flat rocks on the sand.

    "....I thought you told me there was a owl or something." Said Edward.

    "See those rocks?" Pointed West. "At night they were shining gold, forming the picture of a owl."

    "Huh. I guess it really does look like an owl. Shouldn't we investigate it?"

    "Way ahead of you." Said Florencia who appeared with a piece of papyrus.

    "What's that?"

    "Some notes Aladdin lent me. I compared to some characters hidden in the rocks to translate a password."

    "What kind of characters were by the way?"

    "Fire Language. The Steel Continent used to be domain of the Fire Realm in the distant past."

    She then shoots an arrow of light skyward and several rays of light fell above the rocks forming the image of a sun.

    "...Is something supossed to happen?" Edward starts to look around when the sky started to turn bright red and a sandstorm appears right around the rocks. "Woah neely!"

    Meanwhile, Aladdin was on the oasis, resting on a net attached to two palm trees he notices the change in the enviroment at a distance.

    "...That came earlier than I expected."

    Soon the sandstorm faded and a large pyramid appeared surrounded by two pools.

    "There is is, folks." Said Florencia. "The Lost Kingdom of Ra."

    "....More like 0.1 percent of the Lost Kingdom, no?" Said Johnnathan.

    The group then approached the pyramid that had torches surrounding the rock path of the ruins.

    "Interesting. Even though it's old as junk, it still looks new." Said Florencia. "It's almost like as if time didn't passed."

    "By the way, how did this got under the sand in the first place?" Asked West.

    "No one knows. Some say it was a natural disaster and some says it was an ancient curse."

    "No point in wondering that now." Said Johnnathan. "Let's just enter and gets this done with it-"

    "Halt!" A voice echoed from the surroundings and two male figures emerged from the two pools. They were wearing cooper armors and had their bodies covered in bandages. One had a crocodile mask and wielded a spear and the other had a hippopotamus mask and wielded a large stone blade. "You shall not procced any further from the Pharaoh's Domain!"

    "What the? Where did those two came from?" Said Vanilla.

    "Personally I don't care. Those two certainly are after a fight." Said West who just honed his claws.

    "Don't take us too light, beastman." Said the man with the crocodile mask. "You speak with the two greatest warriors of Ra."

    "The greatest warriors...Are you two Sinai and Nile by any chance?" Asked Florencia.

    "Oh. So you know about us." Replied the one with the hippopotamus mask.

    "You know them?" Asked Edward.

    "No. I heard about them. They were the two great warriors that were know as Ra's Guardians Deities. Nile, who was know to be just as dangerous on land or water and Sinai, who was the strongest of all the continent."

    "But that was like 500 years ago at least. Humans don't live that long."

    "It's most likely they aren't human anymore." Said Johnnathan. "Just two walking corpses."

    "Are you looking down on us, Hybrid?" Said Sinai.

    "I too heard about you. Two Heroes who became Legends. But Legends are only worthy in the past. What is it matter is how you do in the present."

    "That half-breed has guts." Said Nile. "I think we might show our strenght once again after all, Sinai."

    "Then get your spear ready, Nile." Said Sinai. "I always wanted to face a Hybrid at some point in my life."

    "Let's not get hasty. The Pharaoh gave us very specific instructions."

    "The Pharaoh?" Said Johnnathan.

    "Basically, he said that each one of us would face one intruder each. And since there are five of you here, then 3 of you can pass."

    "I feel like we are being played here."

    "Our lord can have a rather nasty sense of humour. I wouldn't understimate him if I were you."

    "...Very well then. I guess it's better if I took you two down already."

    "Hold it, Johnnathan." Said Florencia. "It's better if you save your strenght as much as possible. I'll help handle them."

    "Then count me in." Said West. "I want a taste of those so-called Heros."

    "Then it is decided?" Said Nile.

    "...Yes." Said Johnnathan. "Edward? Vanilla? No objections?"

    "I'm okay in not facing the two strongest of Ra."

    "I feel more safe with you anyway."

    "Well, that settles it."

    Nile and Sinai opens the path and the three of them easily pass them.

    "By the way." Said Nile. "We are going after you three after we finishe them."

    "Hah! Good luck with that, lizard breath."

    The three of them enter the pyramid.

    "I guess the Hybrid can wait a while." Said Sinai. "But a Wolfman will also be a suitable opponent."

    "Flor, keep the distance and cover me from behind, will ya?" Said West.

    "Don't take them light because they are...were humans, West."

    "I know that. But I reaaaally want to see what those two are able to do."

    Hidden:


    Johnnathan and the other two arrived inside the pyramid where they stumbled upon an open chamber that was surrounded with torches that illuminated the room. The walls were shining with a golden colour containing several drawings. At the center, there was a golden throne.

    "Is...That it?" Said Johnnathan.

    "I can't see any other way further." Said Vanilla.

    "Woah...Check out those." Said Edward while looking at the walls.

    "...What are those?"

    "You didn't know? The ancients used to store history into drawings."

    "I seen some of those." Said Johnnathan. "I seen better drawings coming from a five-year old."

    "They are supossed to tell history, you uncultured savage."

    "I'll let that one pass. Can you figure something out of it? Might have a clue."

    "It seems it follows a timeline and we are right at the end...By the way what is up with this character?" Edward points at a figure that looked vaguely like Raven.

    "...I don't like it." Said Johnnathan.

    "Well, let's try to rewind a little bit." Edward looks at the drawings that went to the other corner of the wall. "Ancient History....Ancient History....I heard most about it....Except for this."

    They stop on a drawing of several black devil-like beings covered in fire alongside humans.

    "Are those deities?" Asked Vanilla.

    "Fire Demons." Said Johnnathan. "The Steel Continent was their domain so they had some sort of hierarchy over the people. In fact, Ra was one of the Fire Demons."

    "Is that so? I don't remember learning that." Said Edward.

    "I too studied those sort of things a long time ago."

    "Oh yeah. Your mother was a vampire, so she might had know some pretty unknow stuff, right?" Said Vanilla.

    "Yeah. She could had been a harsh teacher, but...I actually did enjoy some of her lectures." Johnnathan then starts to slowly cry at his red eye.

    "Uhhh...You are crying?"

    "Oh, sorry. Got emotional for a second there. It just I remember when I was only four and...she put me on her lap and we would sit on the counch...And she would read Treasure Land to me while I would look at the pictures in the book."

    "Ah! My dad read that one to me too."

    "The main character was kind of dull, but everything else was worth it. The whole night would pass, but it never felt a hour barely passed. I wish I could sleep on my mother's lap one last time."

    "Yeah...we all do."

    "Well, sentiments aside, what's up with this demon bigger than the others?" Said Edward. "Is that Ra, by any chance?"

    "Nah. That's the big guy himself, Astaroth." Said a voice that came from behind them.

    They turned around and saw a man laying on the throne in a relaxed manner. He has his body all covered in bandages all the way to his mouth with a big sash made out of green and yellow stripes on his shoulders and another large piece of cloth covering his waist and legs. His below body was covered in golden armory and had straight short black hair and a golden bangle on his forehead.

    "Was that guy always there?" Said Edward.

    No. And didn't sensed him coming." Said Johnnathan. "Where did you come from?"

    "I don't know? From below, I guess? All you need to know is that I was here because I live here and you folks just arrived at my property out of nowhere without any warning and honestly...I feel kind of violated. Couldn't you guys at least sent a letter?"

    "Are you like, the ruler of this place?"

    "Pretty much. I'm the Pharaoh of Ra. Nice to meet you guys."

    "He is...rather polite and casual for a sovereign." Said Edward.

    "I'll go straight to the point." Said Johnnathan. "We looking for the Fire Key. You know something about it?"

    "You mean this?" He shows them a bright red key. "It's how it was called centuries ago, so...Yeah, it is here."

    "Hand it over."

    "Oh. Why would I do that?"

    "E-Excuse me." Vanilla gets in between them. "Y-Your highness. It's a extreme honour to one of the few of my era to stand in front of an unique and fascinating figure as yourself."

    "Ooooh! Flattery! I missed that." Said the Pharaoh. "Did you heard about me?"

    "Yes. I heard about you from a friend who descends from your kingdom. You must be-"

    "Hold up. Not gonna say my real name out loud."

    "Oh. Sorry. I did heard you were also one of the greatest spellcasters to ever lived. And as a spellcaster myself, I do have a lot of admiration."

    "Is she for real?" Asked Edward.

    "I did heard that the magic power of the last Pharaoh could rival the power of a Dark Lord." Said Johnnathan.

    "A-Are you for real?"

    "So if you would it...Could you give us the key? We worked so hard to find it and let me tell you, it was...the most thrilling experience."

    "Is that so?" Said the Pharaoh. "Alright then. You can take it."

    "Really?!"

    "...No."

    He snaps his fingers and two mummies wearing bronze armors appears from clouds of sand above her to attack, but Johnnathan and Edward intercepts and destroy them before they could harm her.

    "Nice reaction." Said Johnnathan.

    "Interesting. You guys might be an enterntaiment somehow." Said the Pharaoh as he summons a golden staff and a giant black spider with golden claws in it's legs appears from below his throne. "Would you please impress me?"

    Outside, West was facing an all-out attack from two sides against Nile and Sinai. Nile delivered a thrust with his spear, but West managed to dodge. But he became now vulnerable and Sinai manages to send him away with his sword.

    "Urgh. Those guys are tough."

    "And quick." Nile raised his hand and needles of water rose from the pools that he sends it flying at West.

    "Shoot!" West covers his claws with wind and swings it, causing razor winds to be launched, but only a handful of the water projectiles fades it. Fortunately, the rest are taken down by Florencia's light arrows.

    "I told you to be careful West."

    "In my own defense, I didn't expected them to shoot water."

    "It seems that mutt has more tricks than we expect, Nile." Said Sinai. "Should I do that?"

    "Go ahead."

    Sinai then hit the ground with his sword and a massive sandstorm appeared that blinded West.

    "Urgh. Okay, that's a little disturbing. Not that my other senses can't...Hold on." West then looked back. "They wouldn't...."

    Far behind, Florencia was struggling to see anything in the sand. "I never seen such a level of sorcery. Is West alright?"

    "I would be more concerned about you, fairy." Nile snaeked behind her ready to thrust his spear at her until West intercepted and blocked the attack by letting it stab him in the gut.

    "West!"

    "Go away!" West manages to push Nile back while he lays on his knee.

    "West! Let me heal those!"

    "No...You need to concentrate."

    "Huh? What do you mean?"

    "Your left! Shoot!"

    Florencia did it what he instructed and manages to shoot through Sinai's shoulders who was approaching them.

    "Gah! Lucky shot!" Sinai disappears inside the sandstorm.

    "We aren't able to see them through our eyes, but I can track their smell and sound. We need to put those two at bay here."

    "Very well. Tell me where to shoot."

    "Alright....Left!"

    Florencia shoots at Nile.

    "Up!"

    She shoots at Sinai who was approaching from above sending him away.

    "They are getting more tricky." Said Florencia.

    "Just keep your accuracy sharp while I-" West is shot by an arrow of water in the shoulder. "Son of a...I forgot he could do that."

    "West! Can you still keep track on them?"

    "As long as my nose and ears works."

    "Very well." Florencia aims her bow upwards and shoots a large light arrow. "Rain!"

    Several rays of light started to fall from the sky. Nile and Sinai then spread across to dodge the attacks.

    "I see now." West starts to look around and ran through the sandstorm. In the way, he manages to face Nile without being seen.

    "What?!"

    "Got ya!" West delivers a punch that sent Nile flying away. Sinai then attacks him from behind, but West dodges the attack and delivers a slash with his claws covered in wind that wounds his shoulders.

    "Guh! Not half-bad. But not good enough." Sinai's shoulders then quickly regenerates. "You will need to more than that."

    "....Okay then." West turns into a full wolfman and delivers a fury of punches on him.

    "Gaaaah!"

    "And now the finishing touch! Wolf Cannon!" West launched a air bomb from his mouth that sent his whole body flying away is crushed into pieces.

    "Well...That was a hard cookie."

    "You are open!" Nile attacked West from behind with a water arrow that he barely dodged. "You are done!"

    "Denied!" Florencia appeared with her bow aimed straight at him up-close. "Hyper Arrow!"

    She sent a giant ray of light that burned his whole body.

    "Magnificent." Murmured Nile while his body perish. The sandstorm then vanish.

    "Well...They were kinda of easy to break." Said West.

    "Those cursed bodies were moving thanking to some outside magic. It's no surprise their bodies would be destroyed once the magic is gone."

    "So not even real bodies they had...Urgh!" West starts to feel the burden of his injuries.

    "Stand still." Florencia starts to heal his wounds. "This will take a minute."

    "...You know...I was certainly not expecting this shit when I entered this Red Beast bussiness."

    "Gonna chicken out?"

    "Heh! Too late."

    "They ar everywhere!" Edward started panicking as he continuously attacks with his electric sword and each time he beats them all, a new wave appears from the sand. "Vanilla, I know those things takes time, but I would prefer if we do not die."

    "Work. Work. Work. Nothing changes after graduation, huh?" Vanilla charges her staff with a powerful white glow that summons a snowstorm that freezes the mummies. The cold winds seems to affect the Pharaoh as well, but with he seems unfazed by it.

    "Meh." He summons an orb of light from his palm that created a scorching light that dispeled the blizzard and turned the mummies into ashes.

    "Hot! Hot! Hot!" Edward got his hand burned by a ray of light. "What is this? Fire?"

    "No. Heat." Said Vanilla. "I heard stories about it. A mass produced heat as sunlight. I don't know how is it possible."

    "That is the blessing of the Fire Demon, Ra. It runs deep into the blood of my ancestors." He snaps his fingers and the legs of the spider under his throne got red hot to the point that the rock below started to melt.

    "Vanilla! Watch out!" Johnnathan rushed in front of Vanilla before the Spider reached her attacking with the hot claws, but Johnnathan manages to block with one of his dark swords.

    "Huh. Not half-bad." Said the Pharaoh who was making his nails. "Come to think about it, you are one of those Hybrids, right? That magic you cover your blades show it. First time witnessing it. Fascinating."

    "I barely did anything until now."

    "And I expect you to make me release my final form."

    "A final what?" Asked Edward.

    "Don't bother it, Eddie." Said Johnnathan. "And you two better avoid touching that thing. I mean, I'm a Hybrid and yet...." He shows his hand grasping the saber's handle showing burn marks.

    "All that from that attack? Yikes!"

    "Does that bother you?" Said the Pharaoh.

    "Yes. A lot."

    "Great."

    The spider starts to attack with faster attacks, like a rain of spears.

    "Ah! I can't get close enough!"

    "Eddie! Remember that crab from way back?!" Said Johnnathan.

    "Oh yeah...Wasn't West with us?"

    "You have to do it then!"

    "I can help." Vanilla glows her staff with an aqua glow. "Flood!"

    Vanilla creates a flood that covers the floor around the spider wet.

    "You washed up the floor, so what? This Spider can swim you know."

    "Thunder Bomb!" Vanilla shoots three orbs of lightning that shocks the spider and is amplified by the flood.

    "Abababababababaaaaaa!" The Pharaoh and the Spider gets paralyzed.

    "Now you two, go!"

    Johnnathan and Edward gets into the two parallel sides of the spider and cuts of its legs.

    "Ah come on, man!" The Pharaoh dispels the spider and gets off his throne. "Okay. That was disappointing."

    The Pharaoh summons a golden staff with a red jewel on it.

    "I actually feel dragged into a corner...But all it took was to me to try a little more." He uses his staff to cast a bright light and a giant falcon with golden armor appears that he jumps on his back.

    "Is that a Familiar?" Said Vanilla. "It's almost like some sort of god. It's not like anything I seen it."

    "I guess you folks really wants the Key, huh? Too bad it already has someone in mind to me to give to it."

    "What? That's out of nowhere. Who?" Asked Johnnathan.

    "I believe he goes by...Raven."

    "Well, not that's a little-WHAT?!"

    Meanwhile at a nearby island at the other side of the Steel Continent, there was a Blitzreignian Base built on it. It was the closest military facility of Blitzreign in the territory next to the Steel Continent. Inside, a soldier is writting a letter while in looking out in the roof with another soldier behind him looking at the other side.

    "What are you writting?"

    "A letter for my sister. She is gonna marry in two weeks so I have to make sure this reach her before the day."

    "I see. Sucks being around here. Ever since those Rogues started to spread like a plague, they have been demanding a little too much. With a good reason."

    "The next shift is coming next month. You are staying?"

    "There is no one waiting for me anyway."

    "I understand. I guess staying here wasn't so bad after all. I mean, I really not wanna be stuck on another big thick iron cube again. I wanna get on a ship, make a fairly good carrer for myself and stay closer to those dear for me. This may be selfish, but I am requesting that my sister gives my name for one of her sons. I guess I'm pretty avarage, huh?"

    "I think you are just fine, buddy." Said Raven who appeared out of nowhere with his arm around the soldier's shoulder with a crimsom claw in his left arm. The other soldier was laying dead on the floor.

    "What-Aaaaaaah!" He kills the soldier before he could even react.

    "Alert! Alert!" The voicespeakers in the base started to shout while the alarms ringing loudly. "Code Raven! Code Raven!"

    The soldiers in the base started to run to get ready into battle. But most of them passed through the hallways and crossed paths with Raven that like a bad strike of fate, quickly killed them with large dark red bird-shaped waves attacks from his sword.

    "So fragile...So easy to break."

    He then gets in front of a large thick yellow door. He then swings his sword two times and the door is sliced in two. He enters the room and encounters soldiers armed with guns with five gattling turrents in front.

    "Fire!"

    A rapid of bullets went like a storm into Raven that left a lot of dust by the fire from the turrents. Soon the turrents gets overheated and cease functioning.

    "Did we get him?"

    From the cloud of dust, several hot bullets are shot and pierce the commanding officer, killing him in the process.

    "C-Commander!"

    Soon, Noir appears out of the dust with bullets on his hand.

    "If you think that's what would be enough to kill Raven, then you are so not ready for us."

    The dust then ceases and Raven was show unharmed, picking his ear with his finger. There was a lot of bullets left in the floor.

    "That wasn't necessary, Noir."

    "And what are you gonna about it?"

    "...Ah! Whatever."

    Soon all the other siblings except for Nightmare appears.

    "Are we still not done?" Said Moonlight. "Come on Noir! End it all in an instant!"

    "How about you help for once?" Said Blanc.

    "I....I'll go check the other places here." Said Evening.

    "Yeah, do that." Said Raven. "Chill...Dinner Time."

    "Kehehehehe.....Kehehehehehe!"

    Chapter 18: Final Form.

    Hidden:


    "Woah! Hold on a minute! You know Raven?!" Asked Johnnathan.

    "It's that weird? I was the last pharoah 500 years ago. I should have met him at the time."

    "But why? The guy is pure evil!"

    "Maybe. But isn't it amazing, somehow?"

    "I just don't get it." Said Vanilla. "Why would a man of a higher standing like you work with a scoundrel like him?"

    "I can't help it. We do share a similar viewpoint."

    "A viewpoint?"

    "Well, you don't need to know the details...After all of you are gonna be dead anyway so...Die!"

    The falcon opens his mouth and shoots a thin beam that created a heat explosion.

    "Did that thing just spit fire?" Asked Johnnathan.

    "He is channeling his magic into his familiar." Said Vanilla. "After all, it is linked with him by their magic."

    Soon several mummies appeared from below that grabbed Vanilla.

    "Huh?! Aaaaaaah!"

    "Vanilla! Johnny! Those freaks are back!"

    "What? Thought I wouldn't bring them again or something?"

    "You give her back!"

    Edward procceds by tearing apart the mummies and grabbing Vanilla away.

    "T-Thanks, Edward."

    "Thanks me when those freakshows disappears."

    More and more of those mummies appears, but an arrow of light pierces them.

    "I know that light ray from somewhere." Said Johnnathan.

    A mummy tries to sneak behing Edward, but it is teared in half by West's bare hands.

    "Pay attention, you dimwit punk!"

    "West! You're back!"

    "Shut your mouth! I'm here for the art of breaking undead jerks!"

    "So, there were more two. That means Nile and Sinai were defeated...Expected, but still fascinating." The Pharaoh summons more mummies, but covered in golden armor.

    "This is bad." Said Johnnathan. "They certainly look tough."

    "And yet the guy riding the giant bird over there is giving worse vibes." Said Florencia. "Captain...While me and the rest keep them busy, try to make sure the Pharaoh don't disturb us."

    "Are you giving me an order?"

    "No. A suggestion. And you know that."

    "Heh. Just securing my position of captain." Johnnathan makes his way by slicing the vanguard. "Hey you!"

    "Yeeeeeeees?"

    "You and me. One-on-one. My swords and your...falcon."

    "Are you trying to make me not hurt your friends?"

    "No...Maybe."

    "I'm fine with that answer. But what are you gonna do? I'm up here and you are down there."

    Johnnathan responds by sending a Red Spiral that pierces his left face that he soons heals.

    "Oh? Oh! Okay! We are doing this then! Feel the power of the Sun!"

    The falcon opens his wings and emits a strong light that shine like the sun and sent a powerful heat wave.

    Johnnathan blocked with his swords with darkness that defended him like if he had a shield of darkness around him.

    "Damn! I feel like walking towards the sun itself." Johnnathan struggled to get closer and closer to it.

    "Man, this is so hard to watch even for me. Horus! Finish him!"

    The falcon open his talons and dives straight at Johnnathan. When he gets close enought Johnnathan reacted and leaped straight at him.

    "Red Cross!" He delivers two simultaneously slashes that cuts Horus in four and it disappears in sand. The Pharaoh falls and the mummies suddenly disappears.

    "...Oh no. You beat my stead. Now I am powerless against you. What am I gonna do now?" Said the Pharaoh in a casual tone.

    "...Something tells me he is not powerless." Said Edward.

    "You think?" Said West.

    The Pharaoh stroke the floor with his staff and a hige pillar of yellow light appeared behind him. From that light, a creature with the body of a lion, gray wings and a human wild like face appears from it.

    "Oh Jeez! What is that?!" Screamed Edward.

    "I believe it's called Sphinx." Said Florencia. "I heard tales of a Living Weapon feared by all. Figures it was a familiar."

    "Well, well. It seems the fairies really are knowledgable as the rumours says. Why I don't give you a demonstration?"

    He snaps his fingers and the sphinx delivers a punch to the floor that obliterates, making them all fall.

    "Aaaaaaah! We're falling!" Edward panicked.

    "Such strenght...West! Flor! Pick Eddie and Vanilla!" Johnnathan gave his order and West grabbed Edward while Florencia picked Vanilla. Soon they fell on a room where the floor was covered in a mountain of sand and treasure.

    "Well, at least it's not solid rock we landed on." Said West.

    Later, the Sphinx and the Pharaoh went down as well.

    "By the way...This is the final form, morons."

    The Sphinx swings his arm and send a wave that were like giant blades slicing the sand that left large fissures where it passed.

    "If that touch us, we're history." Said West.

    "Don't worry team. He might be tough, but we are still three numbers bigger than them." Said Edward.

    "Oh? Good thing I can still do this." The pharaoh snaps his fingers and a geyser of water appears behind them. From the water, Nile appear thrusting his spear at West who caught at the last instance.

    "You again?!" West looked deeply into Nile's character. "Huh? What's this? I can barely feel anything on him this time."

    Then a pillar of sand emerges from the ground and Sinai appears to crush him with his sword, but Edward manages to block it.

    "I thought you already finished with them."

    "They were brought back, but now they do seem like walking corpses."

    "I just need them because I am already bored with this and I wanna hang out with Raven already. Can't waste energy by giving them free will and all that."

    "So even is magic isn't infinite. On the positive side, this can't get any worse." Said Johnnathan.

    The Sphinx started to gather heat from the palm of the claw forming a small sun and toss it at Johnnathan. He manages to dodge, but forms a large explosion that sends him away.

    "Urgh! That was certainly the second worst blast I ever experienced."

    The Pharaoh then shoots five light orbs at Johnnathan while he was on the ground. The orbs each fire a heat beam that hit Johnnatham simultaneously.

    "Aaaaaargh!"

    "Now crush him!"

    The Pharaoh gives an order and the Sphinx form another heat orb in it's claw and crush Johnnathan with it.

    Chapter 19: Agni.

    Hidden:


    "Johnnathan!" Florencia panicked as the Sphinx crushed Johnnathan with a claw in flames, but as the dust settled Johnnathan was blocking the claw with his swords over his head protecting himself with a shield of darkness.

    "What the? He is still fighting? So stubborn." Said the Pharaoh.

    "Our captain is tough. But not invincible. We should do something about it!" Said West.

    "But we are a bit busy with those two!" Said Vanilla.

    "...Give me 5 seconds." Edward starts to charge is sword. "Thunder Blind!"

    Edward releases a bright spark from his sword that stuns Sinai, Nile and the even the Pharaoh.

    "Woah! It's like a thunder on earth." Said the Pharaoh covering his face.

    Then the blight was gone and Edward vanished.

    "Huh? Wasn't there five of you people?"

    Edward then appeared right behind him and stabbed him in the back.

    "Gah!"

    "Hah! Backstabed by a random guy with a sword."

    "Alright. Since you had the nerve...."

    The Pharaoh glows red and releases a huge release of heat as if a sun was covering him that burned Edward away.

    "Argh! Hot! Hot!"

    The Sphinx then strikes Edward with an elbow attack, knocking him to the ground.

    "Urgh! I...I'm okay....barely."

    "Okay then. Where was I before this idiot stumbled."

    While he was lost in thought, Johnnathan approached him from his left.

    "Red Rampage!" Johnnathen unleashed a fury of slashes that managed to sever part of his body.

    "Urgh! You....Don't get cocky!" He fix himself by attaching the wounded parts with his bandages and makes the Sphinx kick Johnnathan, making him to gets stuck in a wall.

    "Argh! Bad day."

    "How about we end this now?" The Pharaoh charges a high ammount of energy from the tip of his staff, creating a small star.

    "...That will kill me." Thought Johnnathan. "I barely have the energy to get away and I can see how many enetgy that attack has...What is my other options."

    "Scorch!"

    The Pharaoh sends a huge scorching ray at Johnnathan.

    "Well then...Here goes nothing!"

    Johnnathan radies his swords and gets ready for a Red Spiral.

    "Red...Spiral!"

    He sends a Red Spiral that flew like a rocket. When the two attacks connected, the Red Spiral overpowers the heat beam and went straight at the Pharaoh, piercing him in the chest, leaving a huge hole.

    "What?"

    "And another one!"

    Johnnathan sends anothe Red Spiral that pierces the Sphinx's head and it slowly turns into dust. Soon, Sinai and Nile all start to have their bodies rot and desintegrates.

    "Did...we win?" Said West.

    "Uuurgh...To think it would come to this..." The Pharaoh's body starts to crumble. "You of all people had to show up. Just when things became interesting...But even in a world filled with Darkness that Raven is looking for...It needs a Sun to shine it over it and make it live...And no one else can be that sun..."

    His body turn into sand and disappears leaving a red key in the ground. Johnnathan goes there and picks it.

    "...Finally got one...Cough!" Johnnathan to his knees and starts coughing blood.

    "Johnny! What's the matter?!" Florencia gets worried.

    "I suddenly felt weak. Don't worry. It happens when I try too hard."

    "Is that so?"

    "Yeah, but...It has been quite a while."

    "Uuuuh...guys." West appears with Edward on his shoulders all scorched out and puts him next to Florencia. "Shouldn't we fix him?"

    "Ah! Right away!" Florencia uses her healing magic and all of Edward's burns fades in time.

    "Oooh...Are we still alive?"

    "Eddie!" Vanilla strongly hugs Edward. "You meanie! Stop being so careless."

    "Ah...I kinda appreciate the body contact, but...It still hurts."

    "Ah! Sorry! Sorry!"

    "Well, that was one hell of a treasure hunting." Said West. "But where do we go now?"

    The key then started to glow red and a glyph appears next to them.

    "A teleportation glyph...I guess we have no choice. Alright crew, let's go."

    Later outside of the pyramid, the five of them appears out of thin air. Edward was carrying a huge bag of loot.

    "Did you actually brought those sacks along?" Said West.

    "Hey! You never know what you find in a ruin."

    "Give him a rest." Said Johnnathan. "After everything, he can he deserves a tip. You did well down there, Eddie."

    "Well...Our lives kinda depended on you there."

    "Yeah, I don't know what happened, but he is probably more important than you." To their surprises, Aladdin and Drake were there.

    "Drake?! Al?! What are you doing here?! And hold on...Why is it early morning now?" Johnnathan looked to the sky and the sun had just arrived. "Did...Did the inside that palace, had the flux of time pass at a lower pace than outside somehow?!"

    "Yeah, that seems to be the case, but if you are concerned if your time expired then don't worry. It has been barely 2 days."

    "Oh. Fine, but then you are here because?"

    "Your brother....has something to tell."

    "What is it?"

    "Johnny! You wouldn't believe this, but I just met this really hot woman back there that-"

    "Okay, nevermind. I lost interest."

    "No man, hear me out. She's-"

    "I heard this talk like a hundred times already, Drake."

    "But she was reaaaaally something out of this world. She even paid me a bottle of wine. I scored big time!"

    "Is this like a regular thing?" Asked Vanilla.

    "Outside of the wine part, yes."

    "Funnily enough, that lady just disappeared out of the oasis. Like out of nowhere. Man, it feels bady to not even touch those lips...I'll be depressed for a whole week."

    "And you had to drag me all the way here just to tell the news to your younger brother...By the way, could you give me the details Johnnathan."

    Johnnatha then told what transpired.

    "I see...So we finally moved one step."

    "Seems like you had quite the ordeal. Maybe I should had lend an arm somehow, bro."

    "No shit!" Shouted West. "Do you have any idea how is to fight an undead king?"

    "Easy, West. What it matters is that no one died. Hmm?" Johnnathan notices the key shining. "What is it now?"

    A glowing orb went out of the key and started to take shape.

    "Yaaaaawn...What time is it?" The orb turned into a small red ghost figure that looked like an ember with a pair of white eyes and two arms with no hands that looked like fire whips.

    "Eeek! A ghost!" Vanilla hit the critter with her staff.

    "Ouch! Woman! Who do you think you just attacked now?! Can't you recognize I am The Great Fire Sprite, Agni!"

    "...What and Who?"

    "Huh? Are you joking with me?"

    "Ah! Oh Mother Nature!" Florencia then kneeled below him. "Please, let me apologize in her place! She's a young human who doesn't know of your name, Great Fire Sprite, Agni."

    "Really? I see." Agni started to look around. "Fairy. What is this place and time?"

    "We are on Ra. 500 years after their demise and several milleniums after the Immortal War."

    "So that's how it is...I guess this pyramid was a given, but...This place is a forsaken hole of hell compared to the Ra I knew."

    "Eeer...I think we deserve an explanation." Said Edward.

    "That is one of the fabled sprites, isn't it Florencia?" Said Aladdin.

    "What is a Sprite?"

    "Mother told me about them." Said Drake. "They create worlds or something."

    "Really?!" Vanilla was in awe.

    "Actually we restore worlds, but we created one once." Said Agni.

    "You created a world?" Asked Edward.

    "Not alone, but yes. You are stepping on it right now."

    "Huh?! Are you saying you and those sprites were responsible for literally everything?!"

    "...You're welcome."

    "And why were you inside this?" Said Johnnathan showing the key.

    "Oh...It appears we were kept away after the war. Figure. By the way, boy. You are a Hybrid, right?"

    "Yeah?"

    "Huh. Wasn't expecting being stuck with you, but this will be interesting."

    "What do you mean by stuck?"

    "Aren't you noticing some sort of invisible link between us?"

    "Come to think about it...I feel funny inside. Some sort of warm feeling."

    "That's my Blessing."

    "You mean...The Fire Blessing?!" Florencia looked surprised.

    "Oh. The Fairy knows about it. Mind explaining for him?"

    "My pleasure. You see, there used to be six worlds in the past. The Worlds of Fire, Water, Forest, Darkness, Beasts and Spirits."

    "We heard of those before...Weren't those the symbols of the immortals?" Said Vanilla.

    "Correct. Those worlds were far apart on different dimensions, but were linked by a common factor. The Sprites. Each world had their own kind of sprites that were just as old as the world thay were born. In fact, you could say the Sprites themselves were the Worlds."

    "That's a lot to take in." Said Edward.

    "Also those Sprites were able to travel between worlds as long as other sprites existed. They were the form of travel between worlds. But the sprites started to fall in numbers and the worlds were in danger."

    "Damn." Said West.

    "So the sprites devised a plan. Takes those worlds and merge them into one. Our realm, The World Seven."

    "Hard to believe something this small was so powerful." Said Drake. "But what is this blessing anyway?

    "When the World Seven was formed, a council of their leaders was created to guide their followers in coexistence. Astaroth, Neptune, Titania, Camilla, Curupira and Izanagi. The Six Great Immortals. And each of them had a Great Sprite, who were the highest sprites in their worlds and had their Blessing confered to each of them."

    "So if we think logically, this Agni was Astaroth's Sprite?" Said Johnnathan. "Because I am no Demon."

    "Yeah. That's like my kind of deal." Said Drake.

    "As long as you have a soul, it doesn't matter." Said Agni. "But when the war broke out, Astaroth kind of had to get rid of me and my companions as well. I guess in the middle of all that, Ra had to hid me away. Figures."

    "So, in all of those keys there is a Great Sprite like you?"

    "Naturally."

    "And this Blessing...What does it do?"

    "How should I put this...Sprites works by fixing issues them find in the enviroment. And a Great Sprite works on living individuals like you. So I am like your best pal. If there is something wrong with you, I tell. And if you need a little push from there to there, I'll be there. Just don't depend on me so much. There is little I can do on a mortal."

    "One last thing. Was there anything on me that made this blessing possible?"

    "You have some sort of compatibility. It's just a quirk you are born and there is nothing you can do about it. But I can tell...It had to be a Bold and Courageous soul to make it possible."

    "And you are okay with that?"

    "After Astaroth, I'll even take the bacon. SO let's get along, partner."

    Chapter 20: Land of the Wild.

    Hidden:


    Back at the fortress Raven took over, he organized a party on the rooftop where he built a swimming pool under the full moon. Around the pool, the Rogues were partying with Chill wearing purple shades operating a DJ machine. In the middle of the pool, Raven was on a floating chair wearing sunglasses drinking a green coloured drink while Evening and Moonlight were on swimsuits playing in the water with a beach ball.

    "Raven." Blanc appeared next to Raven from underwater wearing a scuba mask. "We have a problem."

    "Interesting. Tell me more."

    "Look!" Blanc pointed at Noir relaxing on a beach chair surrounded by Rogue women offering him various cups of blood and fruits, while he still seemed to be pretty stoic about it. "Our brother is being bothered."

    "...He seems fine to me."

    "You think a guy like him would be fine with lower-classes surrounding him?"

    "First of all, no. He wouldn't let petty things like this bother him. And second, aren't you originally a lower-class as well?"

    "T-That's beyond the point, it just-"

    "Blanc, we all can see you are jealous of his popularity. Just enjoy the moment like the rest of us."

    "...Fine, then." Blanc out his mask on and slowly descends underwater with a bummed expression.

    Later on, Raven notices a flying object passing.

    "A falcon? At night-time? Weird."

    Then a snake falls from the sky and lands next to Raven. Moonlight and Evening notices it, but simply ignores later.

    "Ah! Finally arrived." Said the snake.

    "...Kaio? Is that you?"

    "Ah! Raven, I told you. Don't say my name so casually."

    "Is that a rule? Because I don't care. Besides, sooner or later, titles of monarcy will not be relevant. So get used to it...Pharaoh."

    "Well, if you say so."

    "What's up with this form anyway."

    "I kinda got out of power and had to covert into a weaker form to survive."

    "Did something happened? Because I can tell you don't have the key."

    "Yeah, my bad. Someone kinda robbed from me."

    "Was it a Hybrid with a red jacket?"

    "...Yeah. It was."

    Evening heard the conversation, but pretended to not ans kept playing with Moonlight.

    "Well, that's a bummer. But it wasn't unexpected"

    "What do we do now?"

    "We follow Plan B. And honestly, I kinda wanted to try Plan B. Chill, come here!"

    Chill warps next to Raven.

    "Yes?"

    "Please get ready to go to Wildland."

    "Oh...Ooooooh! So we starting! Kehe....Keeeehehehehehe!"

    "And Eve."

    "Yes, Raven?"

    "Be ready to go to Izumo soon, okay?"

    "Wait, Raven." Said Moonlight. "Should we send someone with her? I can go."

    "I need to see what she can do alone. Besides, she will just observe. Do you copy, Eve."

    "Understood." She replies with a smile on her face.

    "Your sister is adorable." Raven picks Kaio and toss him out of the pool.

    In the next morning, Johnnathan and Drake returned to the hideout with the rest of the crew. Inside the villa, Aladdin appeared with a book and put on top of a table with the rest fo the crew around.

    "Alright. One key and five to go. Took us like what, a decade? Feels like surreal" Said Aladdin. "Anyway, I managed to cover of a few characters in this book, but it doesn't seems to make sense. So I've been thinking that maybe our new friend could help it. Johnnathan?"

    "Oh. Alright. Agni, can you pass here?" A red glowing orb came out of Johnnathan and Agni appears.

    "How many times should I repeat myself? Address me as Great Fire Sprite, Agni!"

    "Or else what? You gonna like throw a sun into me or something?" Said Aladdin.

    "Urgh. The vampires were such a wannabe bigshots, but you Hybrids were always the most cocky bastards. Lucky for you, I am interested in those keys as well, so be pleased for having my assistance. Now let's see here..." Agni starts to check the book's content. "Yeah. I know this secret code trick from anywhere. This book was written by Camilla."

    "The One Vampire Queen and Great Immortal of Darkness?"

    "How in the bloody hell did you get that, Howitz?" Said Drake.

    "I told you, it was just leaning around. How would I know a Great Immortal had that?"

    "Oh boy. There is some tampering from Titania here as well. Whatever is this, it wasn't meant to a everyone."

    "Get to the point already, fireball."

    "Fine, fine...Welp. I found them all."

    "Woah! Amazing!" Vanilla was astonished.

    "It wasn't big of a deal. Just a bunch of riddles there and there, but nothing hard to figure out."

    "What can you tell us?" Asked Johnnathan.

    "The Beast Key is in Wildlands and the Spirit Key is in Tsukuyomi."

    "But what about Ocean and Darkness?" Asked Florencia.

    "No can do. It appears there are some extra layers of magic seals on the following pages. If that is a joke, it's not a very good one."

    "Wait a minute? Aren't we forgetting Forest?" Asked West.

    "Oh? Oh! Yeah, that. It's better if I tell you later. I mean, we aren't gonna go after even two of them at the same time, right? And besides, the fairy over there probably knows."

    "I-I don't know what you are talkning about, hahaha..."

    "Flor...Is there something you wanna NOT tell us?" Johnnathan was staring deeply at Florencia.

    "N-No! It's just that-"

    "Hey Cap'n. Give her a break." Said West. "If she can't tell us it's because she has a good reason to do it."

    "Well, I don't like when they hide from me." Said it Aladdin. "Specially when it's obvious."

    "For once, I agree with you." Said Agni.

    "You know Al, last time I checked, she was MY First-Mate. And she isn't on your crew."

    "He has a point." Said Drake.

    "He is till under our flag." Said Aladdin.

    "That's beyond the point. If I can't be responible for her actions then there is no point of me being a captain." Johnnathan stand against Aladdin.

    "Give it a break Al. Learning how to take care of other's mistakes was part of the reason we let him command a ship. Have faith on the kid." Said Drake.

    "...Fine. But don't go blame me when he returns one day with a dagger on his back."

    "I had a dagger in my back once."

    "It was a metaphor, dumbass."

    "What happened?" Asked Florencia.

    "Women." Replied Johnnathan.

    "This is all cute and all, but do you folks have any ideas? Or we should we just look at every corner in Wildland?"

    "I think we might have a clue." Aladdin showed some sort of flier. "Shadewing brought me this earlier. Do you folks know about The Wild Pit?"

    "The gladiator arena in the Wasteland Area of Wildlands." Said Johnnthan. "Also know as the easiest place to lose a limb. What about it?"

    "I had some doubts, but...My hunches are always right." He showed the flier and there was the drawing of a trophy with what seems to be a key on the top of it. "Seems like you are paying that place a visit after all, Johnny."

    Hidden:


    Through a dark forest, a cloaked man passed riding a Dodiche, climbing through mountainous range and arriving on top of a cliff where he could see Gali from afar.

    "Alright then." He drops of the Dodiche and removes his cloak revealing it to be Alex Highlander. "It's just me now, feathered friend."

    "Wait just a minute." A man wearing a tank top and carrying a huge luggage on his back appears. "You aren't planning on going down there alone, aren't you?"

    "You are that doctor from the army, right? What are you doing here?"

    "They asked me to check you out. See if you are doing your job properly."

    "You came all this way for that? Well then. As you can see I'm doing it fine."

    "Then stay here. Your mission was to be a scout, so no need to engage a frontal assault, yet."

    "They did say that, yes. But a good scout would infiltrate the enemy territory, right? So no can do here."

    "There might be Higher Vampires in there, even the Red Swords and you know that. Are you nuts?"

    "You're the doc here. What are your diagnosis?"

    "Don't you have a single care for your life?"

    "I don't think I would be here if I had. Maybe I am nuts after all. Risking everything for people I don't even know. Do you get that?"

    "...Know what? Fine. You choose what to do with your life. I really do hate weirdos like you."

    "I get that a lot. By the way, what are you called again?"

    "Cornellius."

    "Well then, Cornellius, would you gladly return this fella back to the Dodiche Squad? I do not need it anymore."

    "Very well, but as a request...Try not to die. It will be bad for me."

    "I do not want that either, but there is a first time for everything."

    At Gali later that day after the dusk, Ruby was seen sitting on the ledge of the top of a building. When the night arrived, the full moon revealed itself and she removed her hood, showing her snow white skin and long red hair.

    "Aaah. Nothing like the bath of the moon right before war." She gazes at a distance towards the mountains with nothing seems to be on sight. "It seems the cavalary is coming. Judging by the sounds of the gallops them outnumbers us, but nothing different to what we faced. It's almost they are understimating us. Something is going on here."

    Suddenly she hears something coming from the mountains in the north.

    "Oh? That was unusual. Did something...or someone just arrived?"

    She then gazes at the moon.

    "This is becoming too troublesome. Sigh. I wish I had children...Mercedes!"

    She calls upon another vampire from the red swords. A woman dressed like her but with smaller strature and a black hair tied with twin tails.

    "What's it, Scarley?" Asked Mercedes.

    "Stop calling me that."

    "Sorry. Can't call you Red."

    "Urgh. Whatever. Look, I sensed a disturbance in the north. Could you stay on guard while I check it? There is a cavalary coming over."

    "Really? If you say so."

    "Just get ready to be in position. I'll be right back."

    "Do you want to me to save ten or twenty for you?"

    "Nah. Just get rid of most of them as possible. I just wanna go back homa and chill."

    "Jeez. You of all people is turning into a slacker?"

    "Stick around for another century and you see things another way. See ya!"

    At the north of the city, Alex just passed a crushed gate that he just wrecked.

    "...Weird. Someone should have appeared right now." He then stopped and looked around. "I don't feel death running through my skin at any direction. I do not like this."

    Suddenly, Ruby appeared leaping from above far in front of him.

    "Okay. Now I am in my comfort zone."

    "A red coat...and a bloody red scythe. If you are who I think you are, then you might be the most interesting thing I've seen in decades."

    "Going straight to the point, huh? Well, judging by your attire, you are one of the Ebony Knight's Swords. I take she is currently around?"

    "She might be at Roche at this point. Only a fraction of our numbers remains here."

    "I see. I guess I cama at a right time then."

    "Oh? And why is that?" In an instant, Ruby standed right in front of him and looked straight at him. "Looking closely you don't look that tough. I was expecting to the Red Demon to be a intimidating giant or something."

    "...And I was expecting to a Red Sword to NOT to look so delicate."

    "What?!"

    Ruby gets triggered and thrust her rapier at Alex that reacts by blocking it with the scythe's blade, but he gets launched away off the city from the gate he passed and hits an old oak tree.

    "Ooof! Huh. I expected to hit a spot, but not this kind of reaction"

    "Aaaaaaaah!" Ruby appears from a flock of bats and cuts of a whole tree with a swing of her rapier trying to slice Alex who dodged in time. Just after, Alex swung his scythe upwards and sliced a whole rock by trying to attack Ruby. "A poweful move, but not efficient if you-"

    Alex starts attacking with several swings that moves quickly as if the scythe had no weight at all, pushing Ruby back and then managing to cut her shoulders. And just after that, Ruby delivers a piercing attack on Alex's face, grazing through the cheek.

    "Urgh. Nice reaction."

    "Don't talk to me as if you are my instructor or something!" Her rapier then charges with a mysterious red aura. "Red Spiral!"

    She shoots a spiral red beam from her rapier that went straight at Alex, but he deflects to the top of a hill, making it a small tunnel through.

    "This one...is pretty good." Both of them thought of the same thing as a fierce battle started between them. The time went on and on, when a whole section of the forest they were became an are devoid of any sort of vegatation as if a wildfire consumed the place. Both of them were very tired.

    "Huff...Huff..W-What's this? How can a human...be this strong?" Said Ruby panting.

    "Huff...Huff...So this is a Red Sword, huh? I guess I really dodged a bullet in coming across only you. I am already regretting this job."

    "For only one man to have brought me of all vampires this far is such an humiliation."

    "Does this means...You are like the bigshot of the bigshots around? Because I would be very glad to not be struggling against someone who just a high class minion."

    "S-Shut up! I am more than a-"

    Then from out of nowhere a giant light explosion appeared next to them. It was Gali who looked like to have been swallowed by a thunder.

    "Huh?! What...What is this?!" Alex was in terror.

    "Oh my night...How long have we've been here?"

    "Come to think of it...The soldiers might have arrived at this point...Did something happened?"

    "You don't know what is going on?"

    "Beats me. I usually don't ask for those kind of details."

    "Oh no...Mercedes!" She runs far to the city when the thunder dome disappeared in despair.

    "....Huh. That's it?"

    Extra Chapter 2-2: Hunter and Warrior part 2.

    Hidden:


    Far away from Gali, two Blitzreignian officers looked at Gali after the thunder that covered the city. One of them looking from a binocular, looking terrified at the situation.

    "...Was that all, Captain Hant?" Said the officer in lookout.

    "It was."

    "I wasn't told of this level of magnitude."

    "Experiments exists so we can learn of our potential, Major."

    "If there was hostages in there...I don't think there might be many survivors."

    "By the look of it, there was certainly no one left."

    "Shouldn't have you predicted something like this, Captain?"

    "There weren't any Blitzreignian civilians in there. Ceranze does not need to know the details."

    "We are all on this together. We can't hide this from our allies!"

    "So you think of telling what transpired here."

    "I'm afraid so."

    "....Very well."

    Haunt vanishes and apppears behind the Major where he bites him in the neck.

    "Aaaah! Captain...You are...a..." The Major dies by getting his blood sucked. Hant removes his cap revealing to be Specter.

    "Having fun..."Captain"?...Hehehehehehe!" Corvus appears laying on a tree nearby.

    "I do not my experiments for fun. I do for progress."

    "Wow. Just...Wow. Do you even smile? Anyway, what was that lightshow anyway?"

    "Unfortunately, this was a failure. Back to square one once again."

    "Huuuuh...Haven't you been doing this for quite a while?"

    "We are immortals, Corvus. What's a few decades compared to infinite centuries ahead of our never-ending life."

    "You are the very model of patience. By the way, what went wrong with your experiment?"

    "It's making it too hard to mantain it focus. I need it to make sure it behaves more like...human."

    "I didn't get shit, but...Didn't some of our own were caught there in the middle."

    "They are vampires. Who gives a damn?"

    "...Yeah, why should I give a damn?" Corvus then looks at Gali and thinks. "I don't think Ruby is in there."

    Meanwhile at the city, Ruby was running into the city looking around at the havoc it was caused.

    "Not a single survivor? I can't sense anyone around....Ah!"

    She spots someone slowly approaching. It was Mercedes who had the body burned and missing an arm, limping and crying.

    "Mercedes!"

    "Scarley...Cough!"

    Mercedes starts to fall, but Ruby manages to caught her in time.

    "Mercedes! Stay with me! What happened?!"

    "They...They appeared as you said it, but...They brought some weird weapon..."

    "What kind of weapon?"

    "Something I never seen it before...Ruby, I....I am not feeling well."

    "Don't worry. I'll take you out here and give it my blood and-" Before Ruby could react, Mercedes pushed her away and a lightning bolt appeared from behind and pierced Mercedes' chest.

    "Scar...ley...." She dies and turns into ashes.

    "Mercedes!"

    A walking armor missing an arm that emmited sparks started to walk towards her. It's entire body was a mechanical.

    "What's that machine? Is it what killed Mecedes? If so, I'll avenge her!" The machine starts emmiting a spark from the helmet and shots a lightning bolt at Ruby. She dodges and shoots a Red Spiral at the head piercing it. "How do you like that, you piece of junkyard?!"

    The machine starts malfunctioning and wents on rampage shooting lightning bolts all over the place. Ruby tries to get away, but trips over a rock.

    "Argh! Why did this happen?!"

    The machine shoots another lightning, but a red scyte flies towards it and pierces the head, making it fall to it's back.

    "Huh?" Ruby looks behind her and seen Alex who had tossed his scythe. "Why did you saved me?"

    "Actually I just wanted to kill it because it scared me." Then the machine started to tremble and a red light started to pulse from inside. "...Do you feel something really bad is going to happen?"

    "...Yes, actually."

    The machine explodes into a giant lightning pillar that covers the whole area.
