Ela nodded, biting her tongue slightly as she rushed forwards with Asphyx, both girls ending up slamming their weapons into the spider's head again, knocking the spider out. [#DC143C "DIE!" ] Ela screeched, throwing her ball of fire at the spider, catching it on fire.
Asphyx then brought her pike upwards, slamming the blade into the spider's head with enough force to break a brick wall. She then stood there as the spider died within three seconds. She was covered in the dark blood that poured out of the spider and a bit covered in her own orange blood.
Jayfeather lifted his head up slightly to look at Alex, his cheeks still wet with his tears. He shakily took Alex's hand and let Alex pull him out of the open cocoon. He felt warm and sick, almost like he was going to puke as he looked down, his fear of heights not working with him for once. [#228B22 "Wh-hy did yo-ou come to sa-ave me-e...?" ] He stammered with hopelessness in his voice, he had wanted to die. He felt like he deserved to die with everything wrong he had done in his life. He wasn't worthy of life and he showed it for once as he looked at Alex's face, his eyes dark and shallow as flowers sprouted around his head. He was now wearing a flower crown, the flowers on the crown both brown and green. He didn't know why the flowers were growing around his head but it made him feel weird, as if it were trying to make him more stable with his emotions and thoughts.
[montserrat [center Alex allowed himself a moment of shock as Ela took the torch from him before he jumped into action.
[+green " Help Asphyx with that spider. And keep it out of its web, I'm going up to help Jayfeather."]
The boy quickly crawled up the tree and into the web, cringing at the sticky fibers that floated in the air. He looked round and saw two caccoons, one of which was larger than an human and he shuttered. That had to be an egg sack.
The other was sprouting flowers and such, an indication of Jayfeathers presence. Alex quickly ran over to it and pulled out his pocket knife, hacking away at the caccon, soon opening it to see the boy.
He held out his hand to help the boy out.
[+green "Come on lets get you out of there."]
[#FF4500 "Okay!" ] Asphyx said, bringing her shield down and rushing forwards with her pike, charging it into it's side before stepping back with it. She then yelled as she brought her pike upwards and slammed the blunt side of her blade on top of the spider's head, wanting to knock it out or render it dazed.
Jayfeather felt even lonelier in his spider cocoon, feeling like his skin was burning a tiny bit. [i 'I deserve this... I always do...' ] His thoughts said in his mind, his closed eyes producing tears that ran onto his cheek. He opened his eyes just to stare into the thick webbing around him. He then closed his eyes and began to silently cry, at least it was him and not Autumn... He then began to sob, the cocoon he was in glowing forest green as flowers sprouted from the cocoon, almost like they were trying to break him out. He felt like he was breaking down and this would be his last resting place, in the inside of a cocoon.
Jayfeather felt something crawling over him, the cocoon getting surprisingly hot on the inside as the inside got even tighter than normal, showing the small ball Jayfeather was curled into. He felt like he couldn't breathe and that his skin was on fire. He was going to die and he just wanted it over with...
Ela had woken up earlier than normal, feeling weird. The first thing she did was slide out of bed and look out the window to see Alex and Asphyx, her face showing surprise and shock. She opened the window and jumped out, her small legs bracing against the ground. She ended up taking a few seconds going over to Alex, her hand wrapped around the hilt of her greatsword. [#DC143C "Alex!" ] She screamed, feeling an odd wanting to protect him from whatever. The first thing that popped in her mind was that Alex was using a makeshift torch. She dropped her greatsword in the grass of the clearing and jumped into the air, her legs actually pushing her up a lot into the air.
Ela ended up grabbing the torch from Alex's hands and she thudded to a stop as she landed on her feet in front of him, the whole stick now on fire but it didn't seem to bother Ela at all as the flaming stick turned into a baseball bat in her right hand and a purple ball of flame in her left hand.
[montserrat [center Alex studdied the web in the tree carefully. It was silent.
[+green "Thats not how spiders eat. They let the prey marrinate for a bit, I think this is no different." ]
He crept up underneth the web and lifted the torch, melting away at the web.
[+green "Be ready. That things not gonna be happy when it falls."]
He said, and as if on comand the beast fell, leaving Jayfeather behind in his web.
Alex waved the fire at the spider, causing it to hiss and recoil.
[+green "Attack it."]
He yelled. His attacks would be useless if he couldnt get close enough, so he was banking on Asphyx being able to handle it.
Abe rocked the girl as she cried in his arms, humming a little tune. As he heard the snores he smiled and layed her down on her bed, taking in her apparel. He removed her flannel and rumaged through the dresser drawers to find a pair of sweatpants. Closing his eyes and looking away he quickly changed her pants into something that was right for sleepwear. After tucking her in he swept her hair out of her face, kissing her cheek.
[+magenta "Sleep well."]
Asphyx nodded, [#FF4500 "Indeed, it will. Let's just hope Jayfeather isn't in the belly of the beast yet." ] She said, holding the stick dangerously as it was on fire. She took a deep breath and sent it flying upwards, the trees catching on fire. She then put her hand up, a small shield forming around her and Alex.
Jay was still wrapped around Abe and still crying and speaking nonsense. Eventually, she stopped crying and went silent, soft snores coming from where her head was.
[montserrat [center As the spider came back into her view Autumn begain to panic again, crumpling to the ground. The potion wouldn't work again, and it wasn't working now. She was not in the correct mindset to think but Alex was.
[+green "Trevor get her back to the house."]
He said loudly. He had an idea but she would just get in his way.
Trevor picked the girl up and ran as fast as he could backto the house with her.
Alex found a large sturdy stick off the ground and pulled his shirt off, wrapping it around the stick to make a makeshit torch. Sure it wouldnt last long but it would last long enough to catch the stick and thats all he needed. He pulled out his lighter and lit the fabric, handing the torch off to Asphyx
[+green "Will this work?"]
[#228B22 "No problem." ] Jayfeather said, looking up at the trees above Autumn. It was at that moment, he had noticed that this was kind of a trap. [#228B22 "I... Uhhh... Run." ] He said before the spider jumped on him and simply jumped back into the trees with him in it's arms.
[#FF4500 "HOLY SHIT!" ] Asphyx screamed as she watched Jayfeather get kidnapped. She ran backwards a bit so she wasn't under the trees. [#FF4500 "We need fire to beat spiders. Fire melts webs." ] She said loudly, her voice rising at a commanding tone.
Jay just then chose to cling to Abe, her legs wrapped around his waist and her arms around his back. She was sobbing into his shoulder, her warm breath against his shoulder. She felt like a baby, she was never cared for and used as a toy for most of her life. [#9400D3 "You... Don't.... Know... The pain..." ] She cried.
[montserrat [center Autumn calmed down a bit, still panicing but no longer screaming, when she saw Jayfeather, a not so friendly face.
She slid out of the caccon and collapsed to the ground, hyperventilating, her face turning blue from lack of air. She awkwardly fumbled around in her pocket and pulled out another rasberry vile. It was her last bottle of "Liquid courage" If you will, her own special concoction of illegally obtained ingredients and magic. She drank half the bottle and corked it. Without taking the full dose it doesn't work as well, but it calmed her enough for her to breath, but she wouldn't be any help in the rational thinking department.
She stammered, struggling to stand up.
Alex quickly caught up to Jayfeather, seeing Autumn, dishevaled and covered in dirt and cobwebs. He cringed, almost feeling sorry for the girl.
[+Green "What happened?"]
Trevor removed his cloak and hung it from a tree.
[+purple "The girl with blue hair was attacked, we need to help the other two."]
He said while speed walking to the group. His knees were shakeing but he was made to do this even if he wasn't groomed to be a fighter.
Abe blinked a few times and cleared his throat, reciprocateing the hug. It was true he could feel some kind of feeling to the girl, but it was assumed that it was a fondness for his kind, fallen or otherwise. He had never thought that within a few hours of meeting someone they could fall in love, but of course nothing was impossible. Perhap the girl was emotional at the moment or perhaps she really meant her words.
Abe pulled away, a slight pink tint to his cheek.
[+magenta "We have only just met. You know nothing about me or my past." ]
He said, his face kind, almost as if he was telling a small child that santa doesn't exist.
Jayfeather stopped and looked forwards at Autumn, his face suddenly guarded as he seen the webbing around Autumn. "SH!" He growled at her, wanting her to be quiet so he could take in his surroundings so he could use sounds to his advantage. He took a few steps towards her though, his feet making as little sound as possible as he slightly lifted up his sickle to cut through the cocoon.
Asphyx had woken up to the screams and fell out of her chair, her body hitting the floor and the whole house shaking. She then stood up and coughed before running through the backdoor. She looked over at Trevor and Alex and followed behind them, already wheezing. "What's going on?" She asked, her hood of her hoodie over her head as she ran.
After a while, Jay had finally calmed down. Her face was still wet and she felt like just clinging onto Abe and never letting go again. She was in pain from her arm but she was too busy dealing with her emotions that she had been keeping inside for about ten years. She finally spoke three strangled words, sounding like they were more or less sobs, "I...Love...You..."
[montserrat [center Trevor looked around the room, sputtering a bit, unsure what to do, until he suddenly he fell back against the wall, creating a loud thump and clattter as he knocked the greatsword over.
[i Suddenly They were stareing into the eyes of a beast, a feeling of panic filling their mind. They couldn't move but still tried to struggle. They let out a scream.]
Trevor opened their eyes, screaming a very high scream before composing themself. They breathed heavily, almost like they were calming down after a panic attack.
At this point they ran to Ela's closet and pulled out a short sword. They didn't know how to weild a sword but they did do fencing at school once and it couldn't be too different right?
They ran out of the room to be met with Alex, who had first heard Trevor fall and scream and then Autumn screaming, the two ran outside together, seeing Jayfeather run off into the forest and following him.
Abe herd the screams, but was more concerned with the crying girl in front of him. He awkwardly patted her back and sighed.
[+magenta "You don't ever have to worry aboutbeing hurt like that again. You are safe here."]
He said, a sad smile finding its way to his face.
Autumn screamed and screamed until her face was red. The monster had hidden itself, waiting for its next prey to fall into its web.
The girl cried, her tears soaking her cheeks.
[+red "Someone help me!"]
She shreiked, her words broken with her tears.
Ela nodded and placed her head on a red pillow, her eyes fluttering close. She fell asleep a few minutes later, her breath both slow and heavy as she slept. The only weapon she still had out was a greatsword leaning on the wall closest to her bed, it was her personal weapon and don't ask why a little girl carried around a huge weapon, Ela just wanted to pack a lot of punch.
"O-Okay..." Jay said as Abe began to unravel her bandages. "When I was young... All I had was my brother. We were the closest two ever and we cared for each other like we were lovers. The only thing..." She gulped after this, still afraid to even speak of her father. "Our father wasn't exactly... nice." She said, her eyes closed. "He tortured me as a small child because I wasn't like Jayfeather. That's what he said as he starved me and locked me in my room as a child. I had to fucking piss in the corner because I wasn't allowed out..." She said, her voice trailing off into a whisper.
"I have had my wings chained up and I had been chained for a wall for too long. I had been whipped for too long. I just was helpless against my father's anger and rage..." Jay cried, tears rolling down her cheeks almost in slow motion. She had never really cried in her life, this was a rare moment. It seemed like now, all of her scars she ever had popped out more, hundreds of scars running across her arm and up into her shoulder. "My brother had saved me... From a fate that seemed bleak and dull with death..." She sobbed, finally fully breaking down in tears.
Jayfeather heard the screaming and recognized it to be Autumn. He hesitated but ended up running towards the screams. He wasn't going to put someone in danger like Jay had been all of those years back. His legs carried him ways as his sickles appeared in his hands. "AUTUMN!" He yelled, running towards the screaming, following the spider. He had a huge fear of spiders along with his sister but sometimes he had to face his fears.
[montserrat [center Trevor turned around, squeaking as they saw Ela laying down.
[+purple "Are we going to bed now?"]
Abe smiled and walked into her room and smiled, taking her arm for the second time that night, pulling off the arm of her flannel off as well as her bandages.
[+magenta Talk and eat while I am checkng your wounds, tell me if I hurt you."]
Alex found a room to settle himself into. The bedsheets were a dark shade of green tha made him feel at home somehow. The rest of the room was plain, almost a blank canvas of sorts, which was lovely.
Autumn got so distracted with pruning she didn't even notice the creatr creaping up behind her until its shadow was covering the garden.
[+red "Hey do you mi-"]
She whiped around, ready to rip whoever it was a new one, but instead was faced with a monstrosity. The eight eyes at this size were horrifying in itself, but the hairy legs that just stood before her would scare anyone. She screamed a blood curdling scream and scrambled to get up, running off, but she wasn't fast enough. The giant spider caught her and had her trapped in a matter of secconds. All she could see were the terrifying fangs of the thing as it spun her into a thick, sticky caccon, traping her arms and legs. She couldnt even reach a corrosive potion to get herself out. She continued screaming as the spider dragged her off to what could only be assumed was its web.
Ela had taken this moment to change as Trevor organized her weapons. She put on some tights and a hoodie that reached her knees and went over her hands. She yawned before curling up in her bed, sliding underneath the sheets.
Jay's head snapped from her mask in her hands to Abe, a slight smile on her face. "Come in then." She said softly, her eyes halfway closed as she sat on her bed still. "I want to tell you something as well..." She said, her legs swinging against her bed mattress. She had changed from the time Abe was in the hallway, which was surprisingly fast. She now wore tight blue jeans, a white t-shirt and a purple flannel. She knew how to look good alright.
Asphyx sat in the chair down in the kitchen still, her mind going at a million miles per hour. She sighed and accidentally fell asleep in the wooden chair.
Jayfeather had not come out of the forest still. He knew he was deep in the forest and even worse, he was lost. He wandered around, looking for something or someone just to trip over a thin wire or something. At that moment, he looked down at his foot after he fell on the ground, noticing he had tripped on a huge ass spider web. That meant there also had to be a huge ass spider around as well.
[montserrat [center Alex looked at Asphyx and laughed.
[+green "I don't know if I'd say hes the leader, he just knows whats going on. I wouldn't take orders from him at least."]
He looked out the window and noticed the sun.
[+green "We should probably get some sleep. "]
He mumbled, walking off upstairs.
Abe smiled at Asphyx before he too left the room, going upstairs with the plate of food for Jay. He quickly found the room that Jay was in and knocked on the door.
[+magenta "I wanted to check your wounds and bring you food."]
He said, smileing.
Autumn Found a tiny area outside that looked like an overgrown garden and smiled. She sat down near it and began to pick at the dead plants, clearing them from what was alive.
Trevor smiled and began to put things in the girls closet. Some of it he didn't know what it was, not being well versed in weapons or fighting at all, but he just went with the flow. Something told him that it was safer to have everything in there rather than on the floor. He tried to keep it as neat and organized as possible.
Asphyx just took a deep breath and looked down at the ground. "I'm staying here. I want to be a guardian, it was what I was raised for." Asphyx said, her hands twitching. "But I just don't think Jayfeather is an effective leader." She said, her orange eyes piercing the ground.
Jay sighed as soon as Jayfeather stopped crying, moving away from her brother and opening the door. She then just went to an empty room and left the door open, starting to look around the room. This room felt like it belonged to her weirdly, the shades over the window a light purple as the sunlight washed through the window. 'Just another day without sleep.' She thought as she looked at the shield that was posted on the wall above her maroon bed. She sat on the bed and stared at her mask she had picked up from the bathroom again.
Jayfeather had walked out of the bathroom and went down the stairs, going outside from the back door. He felt closer to nature than he had ever felt with a person so being outside was his comfort food pretty much. He walked to the edge of the clearing before entering the forest that was around the clearing and disappearing in the bushes and trees.
Ela pointed to her closet, bringing her short swords and daggers and putting them in the corner of the closet.
