Her eyes were on Sophia as she noticed her demeanor dwindling, it wouldn’t be long until she was unconscious or worse. It didn’t take but a moment before Vlad was over the counter and telling her to take care of the bounty guild. His voice was rather cold, it caused her to frown. Who was he to talk to her like that? If she were in her own kingdom, he would be-
he sighed, calming herself down. This wasn’t Thiris, and she had no pull here. A moment or two passed as she moved the severed paw off her side and tucked it under the counter before turning back to be face to face with Vlad. He was back rather fast. His eyes bore into her as he told her to keep this place safe and make sure no one gets inside. She blinked. Now he was giving orders again.
Just like that, he was gone, leaving her standing inside the bounty guild. Slowly turning, she moved out from behind the counter and scratched the back of her head. It didn’t take long before a strong surge of magic broke causing her eyes to widen. That was a barrier. Wait, was this kingdom being protected? Before she could even finish her question, she all but slapped herself. Sophia.
Pushing open the door to the guild, she took a step outside. The air pushed along her skin; however, it was much more menacing than before. A power surged behind her as she felt a wave of calmness pass along her skin. Turning on her heels, she looked back at the castle seeing the balcony shut. Interesting
The sound of a loud roar echoed through the town, she felt her skin prickle with anticipation. So this was why Vlad was acting so strange. She inhaled, taking a moment to survey her surroundings. Nothing new inside the city yet, however the forest was practically screaming danger.
‘It’s about to be a massacre.’
“I feel like I should be on the front line, but…” she pulled her hand over her back and unsheathed her sword. Allowing the tip to angle down towards the ground, she exhaled feeling her aura spike forcing the air around her to grow thick with a mist. It tasted salty due to the nearby ocean, but it was a good start. Soon enough the bounty guild was shrouded in the mist as she walked forward to stand before the door. The guild had no windows at this time, only one door, a single entrance to guard.
“On my name I swear it to you. None will pass” her voice a bit lower than normal but serious. Her blue eyes looked past the gate as she saw the tree tops moving. The sky had turned a deep blue black due to it being night now; however, as the chaotic feeling moved closer the moon slowly became shadows in the sheer number of them. Turning around, she moved towards the bounty guilds door and drop her sword in front of the door causing the door to barely budge.
With that done, she took a step forward, allowing her foot to slid back and hit the sword. She closed her eyes, making sure to monitor her breathing. The mist was hers; the air around the guild was hers. She was not about to break her promise to him. With her catalyst so close, and the ocean being not far away, she was at her best. Throwing her hand back towards the ocean, she pulled slowly feeling the tug of the water’s surface spheres of water rose out and flew towards her. Now with them circling her, she was more than ready.
The screeching grew louder as the first set of creatures seemed to mow their way through, or were they? No, they were flying creatures and they simply wanted nothing to do with those gates, they wanted to feast on the living or worse yet, take the cause of the barrier out. She moved rather quickly, leaping up on top of the bounty guild with a little extra push with her air magic and tossed one of her sphere forward. It flew fast, however as it neared the bird like creatures, tendrils of water stretched out like tentacles slicing through some of the creatures wings and others simply slamming them down onto the ground. She pulled her other hand around moving, in almost a dance like fashion before stomping her right foot forward causing a surge of air to shoot forward and cut one of the creatures in half.
“Squishy compared to the bear men.” Her left hand moved back to pull the other forward, she moved her other hand, punching through it causing it to burst into little drops. Flicking her wrist, she threw a gust of wind behind it forcing them to shoot through the air like needles. They flung through the air with dangerous speed and pierced the fallen birds causing loud screeches of pain.
Sighing she turned, the water along the ground rising around her turning into orbs once more. Smiling, she moved her hand forward, collecting two more orbs, these with a reddish hue.Tossing the orbs up into the air, she yanked her sword out of the ground and brought it in front of her causing them to circle around her slowly. Though she had managed to clear out a good amount, they were still coming, at an even faster rate.
