[center [b Arthur was walking beside Envy wracked in pain but the Knight was a glutton for punishment. He took each painful stride with a smile looking back to her. "I am fine" the words hit the Knight in a strange way. He blinked wrinkling his nose unsure of how to take that. Her words hadn't matched her aura or attitude. Though he wasn't described as incredibly obtuse or observant something felt off to him. Most would keep it to themselves and think of something to say at a well placed time with well placed words. Arthur? He was a pretty straight shooter so instead..]]

[tangerine [size30 [center Something's not fine is it? I'm sorry I messed up back there I meant to help out I kinda realize.. Tracking isn't my thing! Haha I'll try to be more careful from now on okay?]]]

[center [b Before Arthur could say anything else the group had managed to pass through a forest clearing. Only to reveal a cliff and a mountainside trail downwards to a valley. What could be seen in the distance were several towns in this incredibly massive valley. Arthur gasped in awe and amazement much like a small excited child would.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center This is.. Beautiful! So this is the outside world huh? I've never left far from home before! I'm excited! This is the start of our grand adventure right?]]]

[center [b In that moment Arthur forgot about the pain he felt in his body standing in awe.]]

[center [pic https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D2cQJPkU4AAshCn.jpg]]

[center [b Arthur had began to walk down the trail making sure Envy was managing. In the middle of their walking a man had passed through in a sprint bumping Envy and Arthur with his massive bag. Arthur had winced in pain due to his injuries and he almost knocked down Envy!]]

[center [+brown Oh! Sorry about that! Err.. I can't stay and chat else I'd buy you and you're lovely lady a drink here sir Knight. Love to stay and chat but.. Weeelllll]]

[center [b The man had a smooth honey voice he seemed well spoken and versed in the life of the hustle and bustle of the large cities. Before Arthur could even get in a word edge wise the man offered a gentle smile almost like that of a dainty flower before hauling off.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center That.. Was strange but maybe we could rest in the town ahead? N-Not that I need to rest! I could keep going all day! Hahaha!]]]

[center [b Almost on cue his shoulder had popped lightly as he tried to shrug off with a playful chuckle. It was about thirty minutes before they made it to the first town in the valley.]]

[center [b It was nothing like his hometown Ortama it didn't have a castle for starters. Tristana was known for a certain culture and architect and this town? Despite being in the country of Tristaina? Hadn't really matched that. Not that Arthur really knew any of that but he could feel a difference at least.]]

[tangerine [size30 [center Wow! It's so pretty here! I wish I was sent out on missions out here!]]]

[center Come! Get you're sweet dumplings!]

[left Ramen! Fresh ramen! Come get it while it's hot!]

[right Come by the Sunlight Lilies! Finest dancers in all of the town! Straight from Galia!]


[center [b Arthur had only grew up in one town so all of this? Was new to him. Not to mention he lived on the outskirts of town so he was a bit of a country bumpkin. He scratched his head looking at Envy.]]


[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Hey Envy you travel a lot right? Do you know much about the bigger cities? Oh wait.. Witc- I mean uhh.. You would avoid bigger cities huh? Still I mean you gotta know more what's going on than me at least I hope.]]]
  Arthur / ShieldHero- / 15d 11h 59m 2s
[center Angels..? Maybe Sol was an angel, but right now... Envy narrowed her eyes. She was ready to strangle him. Yet she didn’t make any move to harm him. Sol purred lightly. She knew her mistress wasn’t happy about any of this though. She slowly laid down on her mistress’s shoulder. She was tired. Envy slowly rose to her feet moving away from Arthur. Even though her eyes were narrowed tears still fell. He had almost died. So did this other man. All because of her. She gritted her teeth slightly. Her flowers to had to pay the price as well. She wasn’t happy about any of this.]

[center She didn’t speak the whole time and Sol was silent as well mostly because she was sleeping. She was frustrated and emotionally drained by this whole mess. She followed after him keeping up the silent treatment. When he asked about the fragments of his sword she used a spell to locate and pick them all up. Luckily they were in the forest. Had they been anywhere else... She probably would have been drained of magic. Sol heard her name and slowly opened her eyes.]

[center [+skyblue “I am unharmed Arthur. You putting me down kept me safe.”]]

[center [#f53884 “I am fine.”]]

[center Sol looked to her mistress her ears going back slightly. Those dreaded words. She was very sure her mistress was lying. She wasn’t fine. Yet it would all have to be handled later. Surely it wasn’t wounds that hurt Envy. A lot had happened in one day and... Sol looked over Envy quietly. All of those lovely flowers. It took a lot for Envy to get those right. So they meant a lot to Envy. She kept those flowers alive and healthy when they were on her body like that. Now they were all gone.]

[center [+skyblue “It’ll be okay Mistress. More flowers can be conjured up or grown. Sometimes starting new is nice and you always have to them for defense anyway. Plus on the bright side... Arthur is alive and so is that other guy. So no one died... You were able to help out a lot this time.”]]

[center [#f53884 “Oh... He’s alive for now...”]]

[center This was but a whisper under her breath. Sol’s ears twitched and she looked ahead quietly.]

[center [+skyblue “When we get a moment we can repair that blade Envy.”]]

[center Envy nodded. Yes they would have to wouldn’t they..? Or he would only get hurt even further. She sighed softly as she walked. She hadn’t been enough help. She hadn’t been quick enough with her own fight.]

[center [h3 Great Escape]]

[center [b Sol and Envy had begun to perform the healing arts upon Arthur. It wasn't long after his wounds closed that the resilient knight started to open his eyes. He had saw Envy raising his head up as he groaned.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Damn.. Did I die? Explains why I've two angels here.]]]

[center [b He chuckled as he began to pet Sol softly as he looked to Envy with a light brush of red upon his cheeks. He turned over to see Danny as his eyes widened.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Danny-]]]

[center [b The young Knight coughed as he rolled over raising his hand up.]]

[center [+red Get going.. I heard what's going on. When that Fyurian realizes that your the target you'll be in trouble. They'll take me back to the academy get me help. So just get going idiot you can worry about others when your dead.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center ..Fine but don't die on me got it?]]]

[center [+red Yeah yeah just go already loud mouthed knight.]]

[center [b Arthur nodded as he sat up grabbing Envy's hand as they crossed the bridge across the large canyon. As they made it across Arthur drew his large sword in pain it was still missing metal. He sighed looking to Envy.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Can you maybe collect the metal I lost with your magic? Or do we not have enough time? I've gotta cut the bridge. Hopefully we aren't too far now.]]]

[center [b Danny had struggled to get up on his spear as he used a twirl of his spear cutting the ropes holding up the bridge. Giving a wry chuckle before falling flat on his back again. Arthur gave a smile but a concerned furrow of his brow.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Thanks Danny, if you can't get the metal I'll just get it replaced later. Are you okay Envy? Sol? I hope they didn't hurt you.]]]
  Arthur / ShieldHero- / 52d 15h 23m 10s
[center Envy had seen some of the petals hit their target. Good. She didn’t expect to completely catch this witch off guard though and wasn’t surprised when the witch had prepared herself for her charge. They clashed and Envy stood her ground her eyes narrowed. Honestly she didn’t care what this woman’s name was. She didn’t offer her own. Why should she? The sudden noise and the way the witches attitude changes caused her to worry. How much bad luck could fall on her today? Yet whoever was planning to attack went for Mika. Envy stood frozen for a moment in surprise. What was going on? She heard what the witch had called the man though and decided it was best to not stay around. She would let her deal with this problem. Even though from the sounds of things that problem was suppose to be for her.]

[center Thank god he attacked the wrong witch. She quickly turned away ignoring the witches final words. She needed to get to Arthur and Sol. Then they needed to get out of here. She sighed softly and started searching for Sol’s magical energy. She was sure that Sol was probably still working on Arthur. Keeping his wounds healed up hopefully. Of course what she found was not what she had hoped for. Sol was sitting on Arthur focusing all her energy on him. It seemed he was injured badly. She cast one glance towards the other knight and sighed softly. She wasn’t sure exactly what transpired, but after she got Arthur healed if she could heal him... She would figure out what happened... That is... Her eyes moved back to Arthur... If she didn’t kill him after he was at least somewhat healed back up. She walked towards them and slowly knelt down. She reached out laying her hand on Arthur’s face gently. Sol seeing that her mistress returned quickly scampered up to her shoulder to aid in her healing magic. The same pink glow formed over her hand.]

[center [+skyblue “I’m sorry Envy. I did the best that I could. I didn’t expect this to happen.”]]

[center [#f53884 “I didn’t either. You can’t always be prepared for everything. Just stay focused for now. We will heal him as much as we can and then we will heal the other knight... I don’t know if we can save them though.”]]

[center Sol looked at Envy curiously. Why didn’t she ever show any anger? Her master remained ever calm. Well not completely. She could see that Envy’s eyes were slowly filling with tears. She was strong but this was a lot in one day. Sol admired her mistress even in moments like this. She brushed her fluffy white cheek against hers lightly. The white cat closed her eyes focusing harder on Envy.]

[center [h3 Magical Clash]]

[center [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2Chwj5JEww]]

[center [b Her eyes raised as thorns were thrown her way. Backing up quickly she used magic to quicken her footsteps but she still was slashed by a few thorns. Grunting in pain she wasn't sure the exact poison but she felt an outward source of magic enter her own veins. The sparks of flames entered her own wounds. An internal battle of Envy's magic was against her own. The only problem was? They were in a lush forest and the witch knew nature users drew power from such places.]]


[center [b She noticed Envy charging forward a strange tactic for a witch but she fought similarly. Spinning her Scythe as a magical sigil appeared. Black flames appeared as it wrapped around her own Scythe.]]

[center [+darkblue Dark Shroud!]]

[center [b She said casting the incantation as she let her mana seep into her legs to sprint forward clashing with Envy. Her chains of magic held strong she was gifted. She let her flames seep from the Scythe around the chains as the sparks flew. She was attempting to burn away her magic with Black Shroud.]]

[center [+darkblue It's been a while since I've fought another witch. I suppose you've earned the right. A right to my name, Mika Yukuri.]]

[center [b Mika had managed to entangle her Scythe but before she could try and meet Envy's charge a noise was made in the forest. Mika smirked with a slight chuckle.]]

[center [+darkblue My, you are quite unlucky aren't you? It seems my word travels fast. I'm sure you've another pursuer-]]

[center [b Before she could finish a white-haired orange-eyed swordsman had dashed right in with a mighty leap. Without a trace of mana or Runic energy from the boy. Slashing Mika from behind before turning to face her as blood fell down her shoulder.]]

[center [+darkblue Agh! Damn it! ...Fyurian? If you're here for the contract you're attacking the wrong wit-]]

[center [b The man attacked again as she pulled her Scythe out to block. The man jumped kicking her back as she slid. Coughing out she covered her body with a black flame to buy herself some time. The man had only dragged his alchemical blade through the ground as he circled her. "Damn it, Fyurian's are so stupid I swear. His target is right behind him. Did no one give him a description of the witch? I'll need to carefully explain things to him. I can't move to quick looking for my badge or he'll attack but if I wait too long? She'll probably make a clean getaway. Better that then getting killed by some rabid dog.]]

[center [+darkblue Fine "Envy" it seems you aren't unlucky after all. I'll be better prepared our next encounter dear.]]

[center [b She gave a wink as the flames dispersed and her remaining mana entered her feet. The poison still hurt like hell but she grit her teeth and bolted on the spot as the Fyurian followed behind her.]]
  Mika (Scythe) / ShieldHero- / 59d 11h 23m 21s
[center Envy sighed. Of course he would respond so carefree. She almost wanted to yell at him for acting like this was nothing. He could be dead. She narrowed her eyes clearly not in the same joking mood he seemed to be in. She soon looked away from him focusing her attention on the situation. She hadn’t expected for them to get attacked why in a conversation and wasn’t prepared for it. She watched as Arthur defended her. How many times would he have to protect her? This wasn’t the time. She looked to Sol who stood on Arthur silently now. Sol was keeping herself low so she wouldn’t be harmed. The witch had turned her attention to Envy. Fireballs. She hated fire.]

[center [#f53884 “Sol! Make sure he doesn’t do anything stupid.”]]

[center Sol looked to her mistress and nodded. Of course. She would do what she could for this Knight. She soon looked forward bracing herself for what was to come. She worried over her mistress, but knew that once Envy started fighting everything would be just fine. Envy had put her focus on the witch. She dodged away from one of the fireballs but ended up getting her arm grazed by the second. She would have to step up her speed. It had been awhile since she had been in a fight. She looked at the light burn on her arm. She would handle it later. She always hated fire. Such an ugly and destructive magic. She knew fire spells, but she didn’t like to use them. Plus she wasn’t very good at them. Instead she preferred nature magic. The flowers that adorned her outfit were of her own power. She had caused them to grow and she kept them alive. The only problem with nature magic was it could easily be burned away. She had to make sure to be careful. Near nature though she wouldn’t have any problem fighting though. She gripped the weapon in her hands tightly. She had to do something. She couldn’t just fling spells randomly and she couldn’t just charge in. There was a chance she would get seriously hurt. Or even killed. She sighed softly. She would probably have to expect more fireballs to be thrown at her.]

[center She would have to do something of her own. She would be sad about this later. The flowers that adorned her outfit and had been tied into her hair started to glow. The petals fell to the ground but they didn’t stay there for long. They rose in to the air shifting around her. She would have to regrow new roses to put on her outfit. That irritated her. She worked hard on these flowers and now she would be using them for battle. How sad. She supposed this kind of beauty was always fleeting. The petals slowly twisted themselves into points practically becoming needles. Most would believe that they wouldn’t hurt anyone even like this. What could a flower petal possibly do? Envy enchanted them though. In case she needed them. When activated like this they became dangerous weapons. If they struck they would draw blood. In the mix were even a few poisoned petals. Not many since it takes a lot to make the poison and she never liked hurting people. The poison wasn’t even deadly. She raised one of her hands up and the petals all settled around her. She would use these smart. Not sending them all at once. Her goal was to get closer and utilize her weapon. It may be long ranged but... The fireballs would be a problem though which is why she was hoping to use the petals as more of a distraction to get closer. She sent a small group of thorns towards the witch and began her advance forward.]

[center Sol sighed. This knight had to be crazy. She settled close to him focusing her energy on healing. Sadly she couldn’t help with energy. She could try and keep him healed as best as possible. Yet it appeared he was reckless at points during this fight. Sol kept her focus though until the point that the knight put her on the ground. She looked up at him panicked.]

[center [+skyblue “Don’t do anything stupid. She would never forgive me if you were to die!”]]

[center Sol stood watching him. She would have to worry about Envy, but didn’t know what to do. She was torn now. Her tail lashed back and forth. She could only bring Envy healing. Couldn’t buff her actual attack magic. She soon turned and scampered off towards Envy. Maybe it would be best to halt the fight with that other witch. She soon stopped and looked back though. Envy would be angry if she left Arthur this way. She was very conflicted at this moment in time.]

[center Sighing she bottled up the worry for her mistress and ran back towards Arthur. He was in need. If her mistress ended up in distress she would know. Slowly she climbed up onto Arthur and focused on healing.]

[center [+skyblue “You do stupid things you know that? Why did it have to be someone like you to stumble into the shop?”]]

[center The little cat complained lightly to herself as she settled down on Arthur. She tilted her head slightly as she looked at him. She soon sighed.]

[center [+skyblue “You are very brave.”]]

[center [b Arthur panted with a slight sweat. As he took a step forward with a wide grin on his face.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center I guess it's time for me to push past my limit-]]]

[center [b Before he could charge in Envy had appeared! He blinked seeing her make quite the scene. Conjuring a weapon on the spot, Arthur seemed a bit surprised. "I'll fight as best I can" she would help him? Really? She could have sneaked her way through or avoided the fight but instead?]]]


[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Oh I had them right where I wanted them! Haha!]]]

[center [b "I should have come with you" Arthur had given a playful chuckle as he rubbed the back of his head.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Whoops~]]]

[center [b He laughed a bit as Sol hopped into his armor to offer him some support. He felt his wounds slowly feeling better and his body becoming lighter. The snide cat remarked on his tracking skills.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Yeah I forgot I don't know anything about tracking! So I guess that's my bad huh? Hahaha!]]]

[center [b Arthur laughed with a carefree smile but it wasn't long before Danny cut into the conversation dashing at Envy. Arthur took jumped in the way blocking with his arms as he grunted a bit holding his arms crossed. He yelled pushing Danny back.]]

[center [+darkblue You handle the former night I've got the Witch little one.]]

[center [+red I'm not a fan of you throwing orders but you've got a point.]]


[center [b The witch flipped her Scythe/Broom into her hands with a playful smirk.]]

[center [+darkblue Awe~ You look adorable it'll almost be a shame.]]

[center [b Former knight? Arthur? He shook his head he couldn't think about that right now. The Witch had summoned Fireballs into both sides of the Scythe flinging them both at Envy. "That fire! So it was her huh?"]]

[center [b Arthur knew he couldn't use any more Runic energy because Sol can't restore stamina. so he'd need to focus on doing this the old fashioned way. Danny's wounds were closing as well as he focused more energy into his Spear. Hitting Arthur with the hilt and a Runic powered kick. Flinging red energy at the Knight as Arthur endured it all. The armored Knight was bleeding inside that tin can but it seemed Sol was helping him out. Danny was packing serious power. His eyes almost swallowed by energy.]]

[center [b Arthur had run forward as Danny dashed Arthur was ready for Danny to flank him with blinding speed. Instead, it was a forward stab sending Arthur into a tree! Arthur was trying to keep up in speed but he wasn't doing so well. Trying to predict Danny's moves was also getting harder. Danny had jumped upward coming down with a powerful thrust. Arthur grabbed the spear as the energy burned his hand through the armor. Screaming in pain Arthur yanked Danny closer punching him in the mouth. Danny refused to release the spear. Arthur drew his damaged sword stabbing Danny in the shoulder all the while the energy shocked Arthur. Arthur had thrown Danny into that Tree with a mighty force panting heavily as blood fell down his brows.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Hell of a fight Danny. I wish we could have had a fight like this in different circumstances.]]]

[center [b Danny had groaned leaning on his spear as he vomited blood. His blood seemed a sickly hue of red.]]

[center [+red Pfft, you always gotta be such a good sport about it huh? Fine- AGH!!]]

[center [+darkblue Oh it's finally hit it's limit huh? That's what happens when a human drinks a Fyurian potion I guess.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center The hell?! I'm not sure I understand but you knew that potion would do this? Yet you let him use it?!]]]

[center [+darkblue Of course, no way he'd win otherwise but he couldn't manage even with. Goes to show I don't always get my calculations right huh?]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center How.. How the hell could you?!]]]

[center [+darkblue How? Adorable Knight, it's clear you Knight's no you humans see us the same way. Tools or monsters so how do you expect me to feel pity for-]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Shut the hell up! He may have an attitude but he trusted you!!]]]

[center [+darkblue He trusted regulation and that badge. Not me and he gets what he deserves for it.]]

[center [b Arthur gritted his teeth with nothing to retort to as he turned to Danny. Placing his hand on his shoulder Danny smacked it off.]]

[center [+red It's my duty to take you both in even if that means my death. Surrender and I won't be forced to- Agh.. Damn it all to.. This pain.]]

[center [b Danny felt energy rush through his body as it started to encase him in a red river of transparent aura.]]

[center [+darkblue So he's turned into a Runic beast huh? He may best you yet. I gotta focus on my own affairs first!]]

[center [b She drew her Scythe ready to face off with Envy. "A Runic Beast?" He was.. Losing himself. Danny was roaring in pain as he crawled on all fours in a cloak of red he dashed his head into Arthur's stomach. Gripping the spear in his mouth he sent Arthur flying back with a kick.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Whoa! He's tough!]]]

[center [b Arthur barely caught himself on the ground as he looked down at Sol with a gentle smile]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Hey, if things go south take Envy okay? Take her and go.]]]

[center [b Arthur pulled Sol out of his armor placing him to the side. He didn't want Sol to get hurt in the next strategy he had planned. Danny was charging all his Runic Energy to the tip of his spear. His roar distorted as he gripped it with his hand still on all fours.]]

[center [+red ReD fLaSh!!]]

[center [b He cried out as the energy all but vanished to a small point on his spear. Dashing forward as Arthur changed the generation of Runes in his stomach. Purposely turning them off as Danny stabbed straight through Arthur shocking his entire body. Arthur hadn't used any of the energy for defense. He grabbed Danny's face softly as he offered a sudden headbutt.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Snap out of it!]]]

[center [b Arthur began to spit up blood of his own as he struggled to stay awake. His white energy encased Danny's hands trapping him in Arthur for at least a moment. Danny's releasing shock waves of leftover energy. He hadn't fully become a Runic beast yet only in its pre-stages. Luckily or Arthur would be long dead. Arthur took all Danny had to offer as he held onto Danny's face his own energy entering Danny. Arthur closed his eyes to focus the energy to attack only Danny's aura. Purging the red in his until he began to grow weary.]]

[center [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxRapzbEH7w]]

[center [b "I've always wanted to.. Understand you. All of you back at the academy but I couldn't." Arthur felt the energy rushing him over. He could feel the anger the bitterness Danny felt. Though he could also feel his passion his loyalty and his dreams. His feelings his regrets all flowed through Arthur. The energy vanishing around Danny slowly as Arthur held on tightly.]]


[center [h3 Understanding]]

[center [b Arthur felt himself drifting off as his eyes closed. He looked around and saw he was wearing a strange outfit. That wasn't all his wounds were gone and he was in a dark place. He moved his hands out forward to see they were a lot tinier than usual.]]

[center [+brown Like I know!]]

[center [b Another dark-haired boy had appeared what felt almost out of nowhere. Crossing his arms into a light pout.]]

[center [+green Hey! Who are you?]]

[center [+brown What! Dummy, it's me! Danny! We've only been going to the same academy for two years now. Course I bet you're too cool to notice me!]]

[center [+green Huh? Me? Cool? It's you all the girls liked]]

[center [+brown Yeah but that didn't matter you were the one to use that super duper cool armor!]]

[center [+green Why does that matter though?]]

[center [b Danny had fallen sickeningly silent as Arthur tilted his head rather confused. Before being sucked into what felt a dark pit.]]
[center [+green Ahhffh!]]

[center [b Arthur woke up again this time on a beach. "What is going on here?" He looked at his hands they were still tiny. Though this time transparent almost as if you couldn't see him. There was Danny on the beach playing as a young boy. He made a sandcastle it seemed and it was a damn good one too. Arthur had run over smiling and waving but Danny didn't reply. "Can he not.. See me?"]]

[center [+brown Hey mom! Dad! Look!]]

[center [b A young man and woman had approached the youthful Danny. Arthur had tilted his head confused at the woman. "That Witch?! The one who poisoned-" Arthur grew tense and confused but it seemed a wave of ease and respite entered his body. From almost out of nowhere as quick as the unease began it vanished just as soon. "That's not his mom.. I don't know how I know but.. I just do. I wonder if that's just the appearance shown to me. For that matter where am I? Are these? Danny's memories? Is this because are Runic energies merged in one another?"]]

[center [+purple Oh dear that's a big castle! Is that for mommy and me?]]

[center [+brown Mhm! It is papa!]]

[center [+darkblue This is why you took the boy here. To learn how to make sandcastles? If he was focusing on his training we could work on living in a REAL castle.]]

[center [b It was strange she shared the voice of that witch but her body language. The way she pulled out a fan and waved her face seemed like that of a noblewoman. The way she talked was different too and though that witch seemed crazy. This woman here? Almost seemed insufferable even in comparison. Why was Arthur's stomach sinking? Was he feeling? What Danny had?]]


[center [+purple Honey he can resume training tomorrow cut the boy a break.]]

[center [+darkblue I will once he shows results! I've seen he was only scored number 3 on his test today. A shame he brings shame to the - family.]]

[center [b What was that? Gargling? That noise had cut off the family name? Arthur looked around to find that noise. To his left and right but nothing. The woman carried on.]]

[center [+darkblue Had he been born able to withstand eternal Eclipse he'd have a future set up as a Rune Knight. It's why I married you after all but from the goodness of my heart, I've kept you two. Even seeing you're genes weren't passed down onto him. This is how you repay me?]]

[center [+purple .. No dear it's not we will be heading back, we love you very much.]]

[center [b The man smiled brightly as he grabbed his son gently by the hand taking him from the beach. As she took out a cigar to light it with a long sigh.]]

[center [+brown Did mommy, not like the castle papa?]]

[center [+purple No of course, not she loves it, she's just been working hard lately is all.]]

[center [+brown Oh okay.. I'll have to work hard too! To be the best! Just like momma wants!]]

[center [b Arthur had gritted his teeth and though he wasn't one to strike a lady. He charged the woman with tiny fist in hands however he had phased right through her. Falling over into a dark hole as he opened his eyes he saw.. He was somewhere new. An old warehouse? Here Danny had a wooden sword practicing with his father.]]

[center [+brown Huff huff... Dad how come you aren't a Rune Knight anymore? You're just.. So strong!]]

[center [+purple Well.. That's a long story I'll share when you're older okay little one?]]

[center [+brown Aww man! Well, I'm ready for the next round let's go! I'll win this time!!]]

[center [+purple Hahaha I'm sure you would but let's take a break okay?]]

[center [b Danny pouted before falling over, his father caught the boy placing him on his back with a calm smile.]]

[center [+purple You did well today, a lot better than I was at that age. You'll be wielding a Runic weapon at a young age I can tell.]]

[center [+brown You think so papa? Will I be the best?! Better than the other knights?]]

[center [+purple Hmm.. Being the best huh? That can mean many things you know? Of course, it's not always about being the best.]]

[center [+brown But mom says-]]

[center [+purple I'm aware what you're mother says but she isn't always right. I'm not for that matter either it's up to you to decide what's right.]]

[center [+brown Up to me? I'm not sure.. Well is it okay if I ask for advice than? My teacher always says asking advice from a more experienced warrior is the key to victory!]]

[center [+purple Using my words against me huh? Fine, you win I'll share my thoughts on the matter. It isn't about being the best but rather being the best person you can be. Working with others depending on them and having them depend on you. Some people are strong but not very smart. Others are fast but not so sturdy. Some are talented but struggle to see what it means to be truly happy.]]

[center [+brown Are you happy papa?]]

[center [+purple Me? Of course Danny as long as I've got-]]

[center [b Arthur had felt the room spin in those words. Twirling around and around as Arthur stumbled. "Not again!" by the time he finally gained his balance he saw Danny's home and his mother and father. His mother had a smile across his face with Danny nowhere to be seen. The man had seemed at his wit's ends with a grimace expression.]]

[center [+purple You can't be serious you plan to what?]]

[center [+darkblue I plan to enroll him in the academy next year.]]

[center [+purple The boy's only turning 13 he's not ready the entrance exam will kill him. You have to give him another 5 years.]]

[center [+darkblue I was offered a great deal of money to give them a Knight or a candidate. This family can raise to its former glory if I have but the resources. Perhaps I can find a better suitor to give me a more talented child.]]

[center [+purple Have that child then let me take Danny and just leave. He's my kid too damn it.]]

[center [+darkblue Perhaps but I'm the head of the family so odds are they won't let Danny go without my say so. If you wish to leave however be my guest.]]

[center [+purple ..I'll do it.]]

[center [+darkblue What was that?]]

[center [+purple I'll take his place. In exchange, you give him another 5 years. I'll join the force to hunt that witch.]]

[center [+darkblue She's already killed 5 Rune Knights and 7 State Knights. Are you sure? They say shes likely to ensnare a man into her trance. I'm not sure even you're Red Bull Eclipse spear can take her.]]

[center [+purple I'll be leaving that for Danny one day it will be forged into a Runic weapon and when he's ready. That spear will be his the quality should keep him safe.]]

[center [+darkblue Well I thank you for such a generous donation. I ask that if you leave. To do so this very moment. I'm afraid any sappy goodbye with Danny will only distract him from his studies.]]

[center [+purple ..Understood.]]


[center [b The scene had vanished as Danny walked up beside Arthur. Both were still as small as before. Arthur looked to Danny with concern clear across his face.]]

[center [+brown So that's what happened, she told me Dad was tricked by a witch. Her charms ensnaring him to leave our family. That she "Depended" on him and he had done the same to her. Replacing our broken family with a nice new one. How did that stay secret? How the hell did I not know? I played into that woman's hands!]]

[center [b Danny yelled as he slammed the pure dark floor his armor returning and his usual state doing the same. The same had happened to Arthur as he offered a hand up to Danny.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Cause I can, I like your dad I think that's the kinda father I wanted to have. Even if you spent years saying you hated him deep down you never stopped loving him and I can see he must feel the same way. With that new knowledge take a step forward you can depend on me. We may not have been friends before but we can change that right?]]]

[center [+red Friends? After I stabbed you? Just call it "friends" and that's it?]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Well no it's more so like this. "Danny.. will you be my friend?" If you say yes then we can be friends!]]]

[center [+red I.. You are.. Heh heh.. You're absolutely crazy. Just like my father. Take care you don't make his mistake though.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Which is?]]]

[center [+red Letting someone who "loves" you walk all over you till it's too late. ..Fine we can.. befriendsIguess.]]

[center [b Danny mumbled the last part as Arthur offered a large smile shaking Danny's hand.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Friends it is!]]]

[center [h3 Back To Reality]]

[center [b The energy had stopped running rampant and Arthur had pulled Danny in with a tight hug. Danny had dropped his spear passing out no longer would he become a Runic Beast.]]


[center [b Arthur, however, had scorched skin bleeding all over. Holding his stomach as he saw the blood fall to the ground.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center That's.. Probably not good for ya huh? Hehehe.]]]

[center [b Arthur weakly chuckled as he fell over crashing into the ground. The witch had watched with a blank stare before holding her stomach and bursting out into a fit of laughter.]]

[center [+darkblue He wasted his life to save a man from becoming a Runic Beast when the potion's gonna kill him anyway?! The "metal headed knight" I see his reputation at the academy didn't fail him. Strong as an ox sure but he's a damn fool and now it's gotten him killed.]]

[center [h3 OOC]]

[center [b I'll spoil something once but I won't later on. It wasn't Danny's memories but rather the Runic energy. The spear's past and it was always with his father. That's how Danny learned something new. I didn't want it to seems strange Danny learned something from his own memories. I won't spoil things in the future but if something doesn't make sense I may actually have a reason for it. Or maybe sometimes I just fucked up haha xD]]
  Arthur / ShieldHero- / 70d 15h 16m 48s
[center She tilted her head slightly. She smiled lightly to herself. Well he may not think much of himself when it came to words, but she knew better. Clearly he didn’t listen to himself speak. She looked at the sword quietly. It appeared he was proud of it. As he should be. Weapons were not foreign to her. She had tried using weapons before. She wasn’t good with normal weapons though. She had learned to conjure weapons. Though it took so much practice and she was only really fond of one. Her magic wasn’t useless, but it could consume a lot of energy casting spells. If she conjured a weapon it consumed a little of her energy but not as much as if she would cast several larger spells.]


[center She shook her head slightly. A sap? She didn’t know about that. She had only said the truth. She thought about it for a moment before she just let it go. Not important at the moment. The first thing she needed to think about was getting out of here. It seemed he thinking the same thing. So he wanted her to grab a bunch of stuff. It would probably be a good idea and knowing him she knew she would have to keep food on them. Sol slowly lifted her head up and her ears twitched.]

[center [+skyblue “You trust him to track?”]]

[center [#f53884 “If I’m honest... No... But we don’t have any other choice. We will do as he told us for now. You rest... I may need you later.”]]

[center Sol nodded and laid her head back down. Envy went to work filling two bags with everything she thought they would need. Most of the potions she grabbed would be more for her use. It didn’t take long to fill two bags. She looked around quietly. She hated leaving her shop behind, but she would come back to it when she got the chance. She stepped out of the shop closing the doors and putting a spell over the lock as well as over the place. At least it would be invisible for now and magically locked. Now it was time to head towards the bridge. Sol slept most of the walk towards the bridge, but at some point she woke and her ears perked up and those green eyes narrowed.]

[center [+skyblue “Envy... There’s a witch nearby. I can sense her... She’s very close. I smell blood too... Hide those bags. We can come back for them. Arthur is in danger.”]]

[center Envy nodded. Fighting. She should have figured. She stashed the bags and let Sol down onto the ground. Sol led the way towards the scent of blood and the witch. Envy thought quietly to herself as she walked. She had expected danger. Another witch though? She hadn’t thought to run into one of those so soon and why... Why would there even be one around here? The scene she was coming upon was not good. She frowned. Two against one? Really? Sol had lowered herself to the ground and was inching towards Arthur quietly. It had seemed Sol had made up her mind. She was going to try and help Arthur. Envy smiled lightly to herself. It was the right choice. Well it was time to save him now she supposed.]

[center She moved to Arthur’s side casting the spell to conjure her weapon. The weapon that appeared for her was the chain and sickle. A light pink aura surrounded it. She was best with this weapon. She looked around and noticed the potion bottle and frowned. Sol stood silently at Arthur’s side. That potion bottle had something dangerous in it and she was sure Envy knew that as well. Envy looked back to the two. Why was this witch here? And why was she working with this Knight? She narrowed her eyes in anger.]

[center [#f53884 “I’ll help you out the best I can.”]]

[center She knew how to fight, but she wasn’t sure how much she would be able to do. Why had it seemed like Arthur was planning on taking these two on by himself? She sighed softly. She didn’t know if that would be smart. Actually it wasn’t smart. It was stupid. She glanced over at the knight beside her. Why had he decided to do something as stupid as fighting on his own? When clearly he would need help.]

[center [#f53884 “I should have came with you.”]]

[center Even though in her mind she was angry she acted calmly and carefully. She looked back towards the two readying herself. She didn’t want to kill anyone, but she had a feeling that the knight that other witch was helping... He was most likely going to die. The potion he had taken... It wasn’t good. It wasn’t for human consumption. She was sure that witch knew that too. Sickening. Sol looked up at Arthur.]

[center [+skyblue “You uh... Kinda suck at tracking. You were soo close by. What were you thinking!?”]]

[center The white ball of fur slowly leaped up onto Arthur climbing up his armor with ease. Sol worried over what they were going to do here. She could lend her support but she wouldn’t be able to do any fighting. She was only healing and support based. She looked towards Envy who seemed determined. Well if that’s how she felt. The little cat would do her best to help.]

[center [b Arthur sighed happily as he wiped his mouth rubbing his belly. He grabbed the water drinking it all. He felt much better and ready to go!]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Hm? Me? Nah, but I leave that stuff to the scholars! After all, it's only my job to swing around this hunk of metal.]]]

[center [b He chuckled pointing at that massive blade on his back. He remembered when he first saw the thing. A claymore that weighs around 60 pounds was an insane concept than. As most weighed 12-15 pounds. Though with his training and the way the weapon was crafted and well-weighted. He managed to swing it around somehow.]]

[center [b "Well you've heard it now" Arthur let out a gleeful grin as he rubbed under his nose with his index finger.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Kekeke you're a real sap ya know that? It's really nice though!!]]]

[center [b He placed his hands on his hips as he stopped his squats he seemed ready to get moving. The sooner the better right? They could be on their tail this very second after all.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Well if it wasn't magic candy I'm going to have to work it off just like any other sweets! Let's go!]]]

[center [b He turned ready to leave when she said something crucial. She would not be able to take her stuff with her. Arthur crossed his arms together.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Hmm.. I see you can only take what you can carry huh? I don't know much about magic really but try your best to hide everything. I'll try to leave some fake tracks for them to follow while you pack up okay? I'll meet you at the bridge, the one south of here. Away from the village. If I'm not there by the time you are? I got caught up in a fight so best leave me behind. Also maybe bring two backpacks of stuff in case I do make it. I'll help you carry some things no problem! Sadly that means you'll gotta carry them alone to the bridge till I get there though. Just an idea.. Haha, look at that? Me? Coming up with ideas? That's a strange turn of events.. Well see ya then!]]]

Oh, Arthur let's not kid ourselves.. I'd have fallen asleep in those classes anyway. I sounded so cool and sure back there and now look! I'm such an idiot!]]]

[center [b Arthur had his hands in his hair panicking light as he took a deep breath. How would he handle the closest pursuit units? Arthur crossed his arms unsure of what to do next. He looked around and spot a nearby clearing.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Oh don't tell me I'm that stupid..]]]

[center [b Arthur ran to the clearing to see the bridge they were supposed to meet at! He stomped his foot and groaned as his shoulders slumped in frustration.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center I gotta be leading them away from here! Not-]]]

[center [b Arthur turned around hearing a scuffling as he raised his arms upward into a guard. The Runes on his arms glowing brightly. A man with a spear had dashed through as quick as a buck slashing through with a forward strike. Knocking Arthur back as he barely managed to catch himself drawing his blade.]]

[center [pic https://cdn.anime-pictures.net/jvwall_images/fcc/fccb86137f07d4e08782cec1046d61f8_bp.jpg.webp]]

[center [+red I'm surprised you generated those Runes quick enough Arthur. You were always a little slow.]]

[center [b Arthur took a stance with a slight smirk on his face before noticing the blood on the man's spear.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Did you? You aren't even a Rune Knight! So why kill her?! I don't understand!]]]

[center [+red Are you dense? I didn't kill that witch.. Yet but you know the Rune Knight's can request help from State Knights right? They help make our Runic equipment with the help of Enchanters. We owe them muc-]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Who's blood is that then?! Huh?! Tell me!!]]]

[center [b Arthur shouted as the man groaned shaking his head. He gave a stern look holding his hands on the spear tightly.]]

[center [+red Some foolish bounty hunters went rogue. Though not all of them had to die. One of them gladly told us the whole story. It was a mistake to send people with no loyalty to Tristania! I was ordered to take you back for questioning and take the Witch in by force. I know we never got along on missions before Arthur but I'd rather not slay a fellow Knight today. If you help me take her down than maybe-]]


[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Haha, Danny! Are you serious? I never really minded you much. Sure you were harsh and by the rules but I admired the way you always studied and worked hard. I was proud to call you my ally.]]]

[center [b Arthur smiled at the man brightly however it vanished as quickly as it appeared.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Except.. Those men were innocent and so is this so-called "Witch." I thought you fought for Justice not just to complete missions!]]]

[center [+red ... I've always hated that smile of yours. The way you appear to look down on me just because you won our spars! Like they meant something! They weren't real fights! In a real fight, a dull-witted idealistic idiot who only relies on brute force can never be a Knight! We keep the order! Not enact fairy tales in shining armor! This is the real world. Now that I've got my Runic Spear you aren't a match for me anymore. I've become an Intermediate Knight 5th class, you aren't even in my league anymore. You who can't even wield Runic weapons talking about Drivel! You lucked out with that armor and you know it!! It's the ONLY armor that works for you. I bet it's got something to do with that brawn of yours. I used to fear that brawn of yours would mean no matter how hard I studied or worked. I'd never surpass you, now I realize there was nothing to surpass in the first place.]]


[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center I had no idea you were this frustrated. You've got one thing right.. I've still got a lot left to learn. I should have noticed your suffering but I didn't. As you're fellow Knight? I'm sorry I didn't stop you before things got this bad.]]]

[center [b Danny gritted his teeth in anger and scorn in his eyes before taking a deep breath to focus on the Runes in his spear. A red aura covering the tip of the spear as he dashed forward Arthur had blocked with his weapon. Arthur held the blade at the flat end as Danny dashed to the side kicking Arthur before dashing behind him slashing at him with his Red Aura sending him flying back. Arthur's White Rune's flashing bright as he slammed into a tree coughing up spit. Coughing the wind knocked out of him. "That Red Energy? That new speed?" Arthur came to his feet. He had no idea Runic equipment could generate energy or aura. His armor only protected him and was dense. Danny fired a red blast from his spear as Arthur charged forward slashing at the blast. A massive explosion incurred with smoke covering the place. Through the smoke came in Arthur punching at Danny. His Red Aura was somehow passed right through? His punch connecting through the cover of smoke. Sending Danny back a few feet from the armored Juggernaut as he flipped back to his feet.]]

[center [b Arthur's sword was shattered and he was forced to sheath the hilt on his back. Even a heavy sword like that wasn't a match for a Runic weapon wasn't it? "His Aura can't be used for blocking my attacks can it?" Danny took the Red Energy to his face to close the wounds and bruises as it seeped inside of his body.]]

[center [+red So it can heal wounds.. Better yet if I harness it properly it can. I feel the Runic Energy inside.. Of me. I had no idea it could be used like this! This must be how to captain fights! I just know it!]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Danny be careful! You shouldn't just put stuff inside of yo-]]]

[center [+red Shut up!]]

[center [b Danny dashed in striking at Arthur's armor with his Palm covered in Red Runic energy. Slashing several times as Arthur guarded and protected himself. Danny laughed as he felt the power flow through himself and his body. Arthur felt the bruises on his body although his armor hadn't given in. He could tell taking these blows wasn't good for him still. They were even stronger than before. Arthur ran forward twisting his body and curving his punch. Danny was behind Arthur already except? Arthur had moved his body to punch behind himself before Danny even made his Red Dash. Connecting another punch it landed true. Danny's Helmet was basically destroyed at this point and the man was dazed as Arthur followed with a headbutt an elbow grabbing Danny and throwing him to the ground. Arthur went in for one final punch to take him down as the Red Energy further seeped in to heal Danny. Screaming in pain Danny shouted as Energy sent Arthur sliding back as he raised his arms. The cloaked his Spear in Runic Energy. Arthur had pulled his broken blade out again.]]

[center [b The two charged at each other, Arthur had let out a loud bellow. "Come on! Focus.. Generate the Runes through my gauntlets. To my fingertips into the hilt and.. Push through that energy. I've got to build that energy up.. It's coming from.. My body? The armor? Both? I can't follow the Current the flow.. I'll just have to release the river of energy and hope for the best!"]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center AH!]]]

[center [b Before the clash a sudden flash of white energy filled in the broken hilt of Arthur's sword. Danny hadn't expected it and honestly? Arthur wasn't either. He couldn't control it so he just put as much as he could in that moment. Danny unable to muster more energy before the clash Arthur sent the man flying back bursting through his red Energy. The man flipped through the air as he crashed down. He managed to barely get back up with his left arm twisted mangled and broken. Arthur held his sword as the White Energy suddenly vanished.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Oh crap, well I guess I'll have to finish this without it!]]]

[center [+red So sure of yourself.. You've just opened new wounds for the energy to flow through.]]

[center [b The man screamed as energy filled his body as he began to chuckle. It was cut off by chocking as the energy turned a darker shade of crimson red. Vomiting and coughing as blood spewed from his wounds he yelled in pain.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center It's the spear! Danny let it go!]]]

[center [b The man had refused as Arthur ran in taking blast after blast as Danny fired off his body falling apart. Arthur smacking as many blasts as he could with his arms punching them away with his Runic armor. However, he was still taking to many blasts to his chest and face even. He coughed reaching in pulling his fist back as he dug his feet into the ground. Gritting his teeth as he tightly closed his feet punching at the Danny. With his other hand he grabbed for the Spear as the energy surged and shocked Danny he managed to kick Danny off of it. The energy quickly vanished as Danny fell to his knee's panting a bleeding mess. It seemed he was beginning to calm down and the pain was finally seeping in.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Are you okay?]]]

[center [+red Damn it.. Damn it! How did I lose!]]

[center [b Arthur stumbled a bit throwing the spear to the side. As he leaned against a tree panting heavily. Using Runic Armor to fuel the blade? Had to be a wasteful and difficult technique. Still, it managed to save Arthur this time but it was exhausting he felt like he just ran a marathon in full armor. As he took deep breaths he looked at Danny.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Danny.. It was a good fight it's apparent you are a lot better than using Runic Energy than me. I didn't even know it existed till today honestly! You're super strong and talented! You should use that to help people ya know? Not hurting oth-]]]

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/igwK9ph.jpg]]

[center [b Before he could finish a Fireball same as before had been flung at Arthur. Turning around and hacking at it with his arm the flames burned the man up a bit. Nothing serious but it was enough to make him fall over panting on one knee. A witch flew in on what was a Scythe. Floating the Spear over she tossed it to Danny.]]

[center [+darkblue Can't have you keel over yet Danny boy~]]

[center [+red I don't need your hel-]]

[center [+darkblue You're captain sent me Danny. If you've doubt me little one.]]

[center [b She flashed a Knight's Crest. It'd be easy to believe she stole it except.. It was a captain's crest. So had he truly let her borrow it? No way a witch entered a city and killed a captain. It was easier to believe the captain had.. He was strange but.. Could he? Have really? Danny found himself confused but the rule stands as she holds that badge? He must listen to her order. Hurt and wounded he stared forward.]]

[center [+darkblue Here, drink this little one. I warn you, you must fight hard for the effects won't last long. Though I didn't make it myself it will serve you in defeating Arthur.]]

[center [b She said with a cheery smile as the man took the potion. Drinking it down as the wounds began to close and heal up slowly. Arthur had given a wry smile. "Well, that's not good huh?" Holding his smile he let out a slight chuckle.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Well I'd hate to be too bored.]]]

[center [+darkblue Ooo back to the wall and you're still laughing? I must say.. I've always had a weakness for men with a few screws loose. Sorry doll I can't let you or that Witch leave here alive. Nothing personal I'm sure you understand.]]

[center [b Why was a witch helping them? What was in that potion? How did she have that Badge? "No, I can't focus on that. If I don't focus on this fight? I'm done for."]]

  Arthur / ShieldHero- / 72d 14h 20m 52s
[center It appeared he didn't think all that much about the way he spoke. She somehow wasn't surprised though. Didn't he say he normally heard the word obnoxious from other people? She could kind of understand why some would say that. She wasn't like other people though. That didn't mean she didn't get annoyed though. Normally she was rather easy to annoy. Why wasn't this young knight annoying to her though? She shrugged it off for now. It wasn't important.]

[center [#f53884 "You may think you are simple, but you have a good thought process. Yes it seems that he does. You learned from a good person."]]

[center She watched him and how he reacted to her complement. She smiled faintly and giggled. It appeared she had flustered him. She hadn't expected that and it hadn't been her intention either, but it was rather cute that he got flustered like that just over something as simple as her complementing his appearance. What he said next though seemed to explain a lot. He had never heard it before. For a moment she looked him over expecting this to be another joke, but it appeared that it wasn't. That was a little sad.]

[center [#f53884 "Well you've heard it now."]]

[center She watched as he started eating and laughed lightly. Well him being flustered didn't last all that long. That was fine. She listened as he spoke to her why he was stuffing his face. Magic candy? She had heard of magic candy, but had never made it before. Actually she was pretty sure it involved working with potions. So most candy made with magic wouldn't be very safe for human consumption.]

[center [#f53884 "No I'm afraid it is completely normal candy. No magic involved. Most magic candy wouldn't be very good for human consumption."]]

[center She tilted her head off to the side and watched as he did squats. She shook her head slightly. She was very sure you couldn't work off anything that quickly. She supposed he could always try though.]

[center [#f53884 "Oh! Sure I'll get you some water."]]

[center She headed to the back to get some for him. She didn't seem to mind being asked for stuff. He had protected her so she owed him for that. She returned with water. She could probably have used magic for most of this, but she had a feeling she should be conserving some of that energy. She didn't know what they would run into when they left.]

[center [#f53884 "No sadly I do not have anything here. Normally... When I am moving I use transportation spells, but a lot goes into that. It would mean looking into another location and setting up the proper spells. It is also very energy consuming which is why I tend to pick places that have huge forests. Since I don't have anything set up I won't be able to move anything until I've found a new place to stay."]]

[center She hated leaving everything behind, but she would have to deal with it for now. She could at least put a spell over the place to hide it when they were leaving. Then again if another witch came across it. Always so much to worry about. She would leave those worries behind for now.]

[center [b Arthur offered another nervous chuckle as he rubbed the back of his head as she praised him.]]

[tangerine [size30 [center D'aaaw nah I don't deserve that but thanks! I am a bit simple but.. My master does give good advice!]]]

[center [b Arthur had let out a hearty laugh however he was cut off by her sudden compliment. He blinked a crimson red invading his phase. A bit hypocritical wasn't it? He told her it often not thinking it'd get her flustered course he didn't think much of it. He figured she must simply just know she was attractive. Hearing it from her though? About himself? He scratched at his cheek with a light chuckle as his voice sounded a little softer than usual.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Hehe.. never heard that one before.]]]

[center [b He wasn't flustered for long however when she said the food was free. He gasped happily almost like an excited child as he started stuffing his face.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Are you sure?! Wow! Thanks! I really owe you now! Mmm.. thish ish goodsh! Is it like magic candy?! Wait.. You gonna fatten me up and cook me like in the fairy tales? Hehehe kidding kidding!]]]

[center [b He laughed stuffing his face as he ate away. He stood up and stretched doing a few squats almost as if it work off what he just ate. He cracked his neck before asking.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center You've got anything to drink? Sorry for asking so much.]]]

[center [b Arthur wasn't supposed to leave countries but he could escort her to the borders right? Maybe Galia would be accepting of Witches? Who knows really but it was worth a shot right?]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Hm, it'll take awhile to get there without a horse. I'd say almost a month on foot. Unless you've got a ride in this house? Actually.. How do you keep your store so mobile? Well either way we should go soon! That caster got away after all. So it means some people already are on the way here huh? I'm ready to go when you are!]]]
  Arthur / ShieldHero- / 74d 15h 53m 24s
[center Envy was surprised by the change in demeanor. She listened closely to what he was saying and smiled lightly. Well that was nice thing to say. Even though she hadn't expected it. He seemed to have gone back to himself rather quickly.]

[center [#f53884 "That's very well put. I don't think I could have said anything like that any better than you just did. You say you are simple, but clearly you do know how to talk. A way with words is a better way to put it. Well your master sounds very intelligent."]]

[center She smiled as he started to thank her and then talk about a friendly battle. She wasn't so sure about that. She remembered the last time she had a friendly battle. It had been with the witch that trained her. She had lost, but it had been enjoyable. She couldn't believe how directly this guy commented on her looks. She giggled at what she heard next.]

[center [#f53884 "I probably could, but it is very draining. Plus you should be happy with the appearance you have. You don't need to be glamoured. You are cute in your own charming way."]]

[center She tilted her head slightly. He wanted to pay for the sweets? She smiled warmly.]

[center [#f53884 "You don't have to pay for any of it."]]

[center She was serious about that. She listened as he spoke about coming with her. Well looks like he already made his choice. He was going to be coming with her. As long as he was sure he wanted to come with her even knowing the dangers. Now she would have to decide where to go next. Maybe somewhere she hadn't been. It looked like they would probably be in for some traveling.]

[center [#f53884 "Well we could go to Gallia... I haven't been there before. Just completely leave Tristain... Could even go further than that too if I had to. Hmmm."]]

[center She seemed to be thinking it all over. She wasn't sure where to go, but getting out of here would have to be the first thing they did.]

[center [h3 Kind Witch]]

[center [b Arthur smiled and nodded, he understood she didn't want Witches to look worse than they already had. He took a moment to look to the side before speaking. His tone was somehow a little different than usual. Softer and yet a little more direct.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center That's true, only those ready to be killed should kill. You shouldn't go around hoping to take someone's life. However, if you've dreams? Aspirations to fight for? Then someone leaves you without a choice? You've got to choose, them or those dreams. Envy you are a kind witch I can glean that much from you as simple as I am. In the end, choose those dreams whatever they may be!]]]

[center [b Arthur placed his hands on the back of his head with a wide grin. Back to his usual aura, he wiped under his nose.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center That advice is something my master taught me back at the Academy. He's a really great guy!]]]

[center [b Arthur smiled and even took a gasp of air as she began to wash her magic over him. He'd never been touched by such magic before as it was forbidden. He felt his wounds fading and a burden off his shoulders. He was still hungry and slightly tired but the pain? It was weird going all his life waiting for cuts and bruises to heal the old fashioned way. Sure the academy had top-notch ointments and alchemist and those were useful. It was nothing on this though he felt a hand on his face. A warm energy and the blood? It stopped flowing. That's...]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Wow.. That's amazing Envy! Thanks a ton, I owe you! The least you can do? Well, next time I'm curious to see what a Witch can do! Hopefully not in a life or death battle though! Just a friendly bout! Well, don't worry I'm stubborn and thick-headed so my views don't often change. I won't think of you any differently. I mean if you wanted you could sneak something nasty in that healing magic but you don't. I'm still shocked you aren't using glamours.. Man, you're hot! I'm sure the other witches get jealous. Hahaha! Think you could use glamours on me to be as hot as you? Haha, kidding you did mention they were draining to use.]]]


[center [b Arthur gasped and drooled at the food she brought. He rubbed his hands together ready to go ahead and dig in but before he did he had asked.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center How much for the sweets? Just curious I'm not exactly loaded on coins right now.. Heh heh..]]]

[center [b Arthur rubbed the back of his neck with a slightly nervous chuckle as he playfully stuck his tongue out. It was then she told him how dangerous it would be. Arthur had stood up with a slight smirk and a spark in his eyes. As he pounded his chest with a wide brimming smile.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center I know! I'm pumped!! This is my chance to see how far I've come as a Knight! To fight some really strong guys! Plus I get to help out someone super freaking nice so I'm doing what a Knight should, right? So it's two birds one stone! So where to?!]]]

[center [b They were in the Eastern reaches of Tristain. near the village of Lute. Though Arthur wasn't sure where to go cause he knew little of the outside worlds and the kingdoms or races that ran them.]]
  Arthur / ShieldHero- / 74d 19h 38m 12s
[center Of course he would just chuckle like it was nothing. Why wasn't she surprised by this? Maybe because she had expected it. She listened as he spoke and she glanced off to the side. She could fight. She had been trained to. She would have to defend herself against the world. Of course she didn't like believing that. She wanted to have hope that she wouldn't have to live a life of fighting and running. Of course such hope had been misplaced. So she learned to be more careful.]

[center [#f53884 "You were right. My first thoughts are to flee rather than fight. I could have probably killed one of them, but that would have only been if I had to. I prefer not to harm anyone. It only makes us look worse in the long run."]]

[center She sighed softly as she looked him over. All this over protecting her. Sol walked over to her mistress and rubbed against her leg lightly purring. The white cat wasn't useful in battle, but she was very exceptional when it came to healing. Envy could tap into Sol's powers for much more potent healing. It was exhausting for the familiar, but Sol never minded. These wounds that she would be tending to could have been a lot worse. She leaned down picking up Sol carefully and the adorable white cat mewed lightly at her before slipping out of her hands and moving up onto her shoulder carefully.]

[center The white kitten's forest green eyes seemed to glow lightly making them a bit brighter than they were normally. Envy reached out and took a hold of Arthur's chin lightly. She tapped into Sol's magic for stronger healing potency. Envy had actually never been taught any form of healing. Not until she had summoned Sol. She wasn't very good at healing without Sol. Without Sol she could heal simple things such as scrapes and cuts. Only a few though before she ran out of energy. Using Sol she could heal more major wounds. Burns and deep cuts. She could save someone's life with Sol, but... She couldn't bring back the dead.]

[center She listened as he spoke to her as she worked on focusing her mind on healing. A soft pink glow had formed in the hand that she had taken a hold of his chin with. It was mixed with white. The power she was drawing from Sol. It was simple. That's what Sol always said.]

[center [I [+skyblue "As long as I am with you... You just have to be touching somewhere on the skin to heal wounds anywhere on the body. When you are alone you have to deal directly with the wound or you won't be able to seal or heal it. It's simple. Just remember without me your healing sucks."]]]

[center Not the greatest memory from Sol, but one that made her realize she would be at a loss when it came to any kind of support without Sol. She soon drew her hand back once she was sure all the wounds were healed. She had always been told healing magic always felt warm. She never felt anything when she used it. Sol's eyes slowly dimmed. The white cat nuzzled into her mistress's neck and decided to nap upon her shoulder. Envy didn't mind. She frowned faintly. Beautiful. No. Not everyone kept those thoughts.]

[center [#f53884 "It's the least I can do... I mean I didn't help with the fighting. So you don't have to thank me. As for killing anyone... I would have tried not to. I don't exactly like having to resort that far into violence. You complement me now, but most change their views on me pretty quickly. You just like to talk and joke. I like to listen. So I suppose that's why I don't find you obnoxious. I doubt you are the reason they found this place. If they were looking they would have found it anyway. Glamours are very draining. Even Sol doesn't like to use glamours or help me use them. They can be useful when I go into town or need to be among people in general."]]

[center Earlier when she had said he was charming she was being sarcastic, but... She wasn't going to tell him that. Besides it wasn't like there wasn't any truth to it. She watched him and laughed lightly. She wasn't surprised that he would burn through energy so quickly. Runes would definitely do that. Even she knew that. She shook her head slightly. Of course he wouldn't know the specifics. She would have to get him something to eat then. That was fine. She practically lived in this place most of the time so... She had food here. She walked towards the back. Wait. She paused at the doorway realizing what he had said. Was he talking about coming with her when she left here? Why? She hadn't asked him to.]

[center She looked over her shoulder towards him. Surely he knew it would be very dangerous. She didn't know who or what else would come after her. Sighing she looked ahead again and walked into the back without a word. Was there a point in saying anything? Would he listen to her? No. She was sure that was the right answer. No he wouldn't. She would have to deal with this as it was. Looking through what she had in the back she picked a couple of different things and returned to the front of the shop. Most of it was sweets. What could she say? She had a sweet tooth.]

[center [#f53884 "This isn't everything so if more is needed there is more in the back. Hm... You do know following me anywhere could be very dangerous right. In one day bounty hunters attacked... We could be attacked by something a lot worse... Even other witches might attack."]]

[center She frowned lightly and looked off to the side thinking to herself. She was going to have to make sure she was ready for battle next time. She sighed softly. She didn't have an idea of where she was going next either. She looked around the shop and gave a slight shake of her head. Moving again. How irritating.]

[center [b Arthur was enjoying his conversation with Envy sadly it was suddenly interrupted. Though everything seemed to work itself out! Except Envy seemed upset that he had stood up for her. He blinked looking a bit surprised before letting out a soft chuckle.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Well, it was clear you weren't going to fight. Even though I'm sure you can. You probably could have killed those men. Even if not you'd certainly kill one. You seem very modest you know that? Well, regardless I felt this way meant less bloodshed. For you and for them.]]]

[center [b Arthur smiled as she and Sol began to tend to his wounds.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Thanks, for helping me out and.. For not killing anyone. I was enjoying our conversation! Not every day a beautiful witch calls me charming! I'm more used to the word obnoxious haha. Also, Sol's got a point I'm not exactly a master of stealth! I hope I'm not the reason they found the shop in fact. I still can't believe you don't use any Glamours though!]]]

[center [b Arthur had heard his stomach rumble as he went to his pack. Wait.. Oh no! It wasn't much but it was destroyed! Figures with his clumsy fighting!]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center I HAD brought a lunch! Haha oh well! My armor consumes a lot of energy when I use its Runes. Though I can't tell you the specifics honestly. It's just a feeling! I'm sure it was on one of the test but.. Well hehe. It means on top of having to stay in top shape! I've gotta eat a lot!]]]

[center [b The armor burnt energy and calories quickly. Arthur had chuckled a bit as his stomach rumbled.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine]
[tangerine [size30 [center Weird question but... Do you sell any snacks? After that, we can get going. I'm sure you'll have to move shops right? It means I'll have to take a few days off. Hmm.. Ehh I'm sure it'll be fine! So I'm ready to leave when you are!]]]

[center [b Arthur hadn't even let the thought of letting her go alone cross his mind. Not at least till she was somewhere safer. Besides, the idea sounded somewhat like an adventure to him.]]
