-The chichagwa’s were hard at work trying to get Emushere clean as they could. However it seemed that she was too fast for them to catch. As she darted after they had rinsed her off she would smell like a lavender. The little Kilargwa streaked through the bathhouse and the rest of the house as she screamed for Arren. She would run through smelling around trying to find him. The door she came too was not the passage to the Garden. As the door opened she would see none other than Conan as he was still in his Kendo uniform as he looked down to see the soaking wet Kilargwa. He hadn’t seen one for so long he almost forgot about them. He reached down grabbing Emushere by the scruff lifting her off the ground as he said.- “Ok, Kilargwa why are you wet?as well why are naked? I mean I thought I told you all last time to dress just like the chichagwa’s.” -he looked into Emushere’s eyes not knowing it was her as it had been centuries since he saw her. He couldn’t tell it was her entirely. Charlotte was in fact walking by in a robe it seemed like to him as he said to Charlotte.- “OI! Charlotte. You seen Arren? I think we need to talk with him a bit. I mean I think its nothing but I want to see about getting Seven and Luna to see if they are alright.” -he didn’t know if she had heard or not knowing she was still looking around for things.-
Gardens of Den Lira
-Arren smiled as he heard Luna speak she had a voice of a small angel compared to most girls her age. “I’m a plushie-a-holic. Collect em and hug them to death. I think I get it from my mum, only she collects men.” he nodded at her smiling walking backwards as they came out into the Gardens as they wondered where Conan was. Arren gaze upon Luna in more detail of the lighting present he was in a bit of shock for the moment. She looked exactly like Iris he choked for a second as he said.- “You look exactly like my grand daughter. I must say I didn’t expect you to look so close to her.” -he nodded as he looked at seven he was in what Arren thought he was a bit of a child of course from his personality however he was still just a boy. Arren’s ears perked as seven spoke about Conan.“He’s here?” he looked back at Luna who was bouncing as he said to both of them.- “Yes Conan is here.” – soon after that asking the next question. “Where where?” -Arren couldn’t help but smile bigger from the mind of a child. It seemed the children saw Conan as a hero they looked up too. As he thought to himself and tried to pin point where Conan was. He was surprised that Conan would be on his way to the Gardens. Arren said to both of the children.- “well I believe he maybe coming back from the sound Temple perhaps he is with your mother right now.” -he did not know exactly as he thought to himself.
-Anya was still in the small house as a woman came forth holding Sarah. She was still quiet as hearing the growl form the woman. As Anya had shot her eyes open as Gabriel spoke. “Wh….where am I?” she shivered a bit as she said to Gabriel.- “Your in Den Lira one of Arren’s many different places he created as a sanctuary for those who know him.” -she looked closely as Sarah groaned in her sleep on Gabriel’s back as she opened her eyes to see her sister Anya. Anya gave a blood boiling yell as she said.- “SARAH! OH MY GOD ARE YOU OK!?” -she ran over to Sarah pulling her off Gabriel . Sarah slowly was opening her eyes looking up at Anya as she waited for a split second before reacting as she reached up grabbing her sister into a tight hug as she said.- “Anya thank goodness your alive. When we got split up I didn’t know where to find you.”- Anya giggled as she returned the hug as she said. To Sarah in such a joking tone.- “At least I didn’t have to use the hammer to much Sarah but you look like you haven’t eaten in days.” -Sarah looked over to Gabriel as she said to her sister.- “i haven’t eaten since they day we got here. I couldn’t find the place Father talked about.” -Anya looked over to Gabriel as she asked her a deep question.- “did you save my sister? If you did I thank you. Since we can’t use our power very good in the state we are in. it’s hard to survive” -she frowned as Sarah placed her hand on Anya’s face saying.- “hush Anya. We can it’s just harder.”
-Faust was impressed by the way Imayaruk was able to move out of the way in just the right time. As his blade touched his armor piece as watching something interesting take place. As the man quickly was engulfed in flames from an orb that implanted into his chest as he was higher than the rest of his horde and him. As he heard the man’s words. “Well now my little necrophiliac, You claim to have the flame of death in your hand. But I hold the Flame of rebirth in ever part of my being. What do you think will happen to your army or your very pretty pet if it consumes them? What don’t we find out?” the insult towards his dear sweet Eliza sent Faust into a rage as he yelled out towards the man.- “PET?! YOU DON’T SPEAK ABOUT MY DEAR EILZA THAT WAY YOU WILL DIE HERE!” – watched as the man moved down from the window as he started burning through the minions turning them to nothing but ash. Faust watched this go on as he was only becoming more anger with Imayaruk. He disrespect his lost love and his. Faust was truly angry as he pulled his blade closer to him as he said.- “Eliza come here.” -Eliza moved towards him running behind her Master as she was ready holding her scythe as she said.- “Yes Master I shall be your eyes from behind you.” -Faust grinned as he started to chant loudly.- [b] “I call forth the darkness,….” -Faust was quickly interrupted as Eliza pulled him backwards seeing a bolt of lightning blaze past where he was standing as he said.- “What the fuck?” -Faust looked down to his left of the whole that was open seeing a man in the distance.-
-The man was still cloaked as he had his out pointed down the center whole of the horde as he brought his left hand up to his chest grabbing hold of the cloak pulling it off to reveal his identity. This would a man Imayaruk would remember. His hair was blackish blue coming down to the back of his shoulders. He was a bit pale however he had a light tan down his arms. Coming with gloves on his arms the broke off at the fore arm. As his jacket cloaked down behind him with an open from the chest showing a black under armor. The sleeves of the jacket came down to mid length of his upper arm. His left hand had a belt wrapped around it as he pulled out his straight Kanai which was known for its double sided katana styled blade. The belt on his hand was handing down below his hand as his pants were tight as if he was wearing skinny jeans that were made of leather as his boots were combat styled more looking like a military black. His eyes were glowing a very deep red as he said.- “Sorry can’t tell you go any further with that spell Faust. Ben watching this fight for a little while. As well my promise to Shadow I can’t tell you belittle Imayaruk.” -he stepped forward as even the undead minions started backing away from him. He looked over to Imayaruk as he smirked.- “what has it been a few hundred years Imayaruk? – stood there gazing at the young prince as he turned his head towards Faust still wondering if he was ready for battle.-
-Faust stood up as he grinned looking at both of them as he said in a grand yell.- “YOU KEEP GIVING ME PEOPLE TO KILL! LETS START THIS PARTY!” -he brought his sword around ready for them to attack as Eliza prepared herself as well.-
-The grand battle was about to begin on this night as the Dark age of this era had begun. What was in store for not just these warriors but ones who were resting in the Den of lira.- <3>
Charlotte had left behind the squealing cat creature to her fate in the bath house, or…so she thought. No sooner had Charlotte gotten a few yards up the path, a very wet and very upset Kilargwa was streaking through the bath house and grounds. This would have greatly annoyed the chichagwa’s that had been trying to wash her clean. The air now had the scent of lavender, and…wet fur permeating through the air, and Charlotte raised a brow, when she suddenly heard Conan sing out to her.
“OI! Charlotte. You seen Arren? I think we need to talk with him a bit. I mean I think its nothing but I want to see about getting Seven and Luna to see if they are alright.”
Charlotte turned to see Conan holding the Kilargwa by the scruff of the neck, and could see a small puddle forming underneath the dripping feline. So that is where she ended up. Charlotte clutched the top lapel of her robe and drew it together, so she was not being to revealing, and padded over to where Conan was standing.
“I saw him earlier in the Gardens of Den Lira, perhaps he is still there.” She replied, looking down at the wet cat thing, and then her eyes raising back up to Conan asking. “You are going to have THAT dressed before we go see the children. I imagine if my kids are anywhere, they are with Arren. I think its how this place works.” Charlotte said with some assurance. Leaning to Conan, she did ask “Though, I would rather see my children when I was wearing a bit more than a robe. If I turn up with you, that soaked cat and me in this flimsy robe….god knows what my kids are going to think.”
She had a point.
Gardens of Den Lira
Arren was taken aback by how much Luna looked like his grand daughter; Iris. Luna found this all a bit embarrassing, having never been compared to anyone before in her life. There were very few children with lilac coloured hair. “Do I? Do I really?” she said with a bright blush to her cheeks. She twirled her right toe in the floor, and shook her shoulders from side to side, fluttering her tiny lashes. Seven thought she was being daft. “He’s just saying that. No one could look like you. I’m your twin, and I look nothing like you. Thank goodness for that too. Fancy me with purple hair. Eww.” Luna poked out her tongue at Seven, for being a precocious brat.
News that did garner the kids attention was that Conan was here, somewhere and on his way over, probably with the kid’s mother. Course when he said that to the kids, they both looked at each other and went…
When Anya asked if Gabriel saved her sister, she gave a nod to Anya before letting her thought roll off her tongue, “Yes I did save her. And you are most welcome, Ma’am. I would of done anything to keep your sister, safe,” Gabriel stood up and brushed off debris off her kimono, trying to get it clean to the best of her ability as one hand strapped her mid-ranged weapon to her hip then placed covers n the twin blades to prevent them from cutting everything.
-Conan looked at the little Kilargwa as he opened his eyes seeing it was Emushere. He sighed in the moment knowing she was completely out of her mind. He did think it was good to see her for once. Though something was off about her. Charlotte answered him which he was happy about.-
“I saw him earlier in the Gardens of Den Lira, perhaps he is still there.”
You are going to have THAT dressed before we go see the children. I imagine if my kids are anywhere, they are with Arren. I think its how this place works.”
-Emushere was of course offend in all rights she normally was dressed as she quickly gave out a response to Charlotte in a loud yell that made Conan’s ears ring.-
“EMUSHERE IS NORMALLY DRESSED!”
Emushere know you, yes she does! You’re Conan, Emushere has not seen Conan in ages. Emushere missed Conan.”
-Conan gave a face towards her as she continued to ramble only making annoyed at the fact he knew her. She used to be so laid back in the past he wondered why she kept going as if she had lost her mind entirely. He didnt understand why this little Kilargwa had become so mad in her language. He cocked up his eye brow at her when she looked over to the lady asking her the question.-
“You know Conan named Emushere? We were in Egypt quite a long time ago Conan got tired of calling Emushere Kilargwa so being Conan he named Emushere Emushere which in Egyptian mean kitten.”
-The noble warrior that walked the path of a very old code could only do one thing at this point hearing this as he placed his hand on his forehead only to say.- “You have totally lost your mind you damn Cat!” -he couldn’t help but say it. She truly was out of it this was no longer the Emushere he knew so long ago. As he finally noticed Charlotte was leaning over to him he perked his head out of his hand as he listened to what Charlotte was trying to tell him.-
Though, I would rather see my children when I was wearing a bit more than a robe. If I turn up with you, that soaked cat and me in this flimsy robe….god knows what my kids are going to think.”
-She had a very good point to make. Even so Conan was still in bandages with the kendo uniform it was kind of odd for him to be in. He knew that bandages would only worry the kids in this case. Conan nodded towards her as he was about to say something. Until, the small little Kilargwa decided to make a break for it say to him as she bolted down the hall.-
“Emushere learned long time ago how to get out of your grip Conan, now off to Gardens of Den Lira!”
-Conan did it again he took the palm of his hand and planted it right in his forehead as he said in aggressive tone.- “DAMNIT!” -he turned back to Charlotte as he sighed thinking to himself on this. He could the robe that Charlotte had on was not really in the best taste to be walking in front of her children. He said to her as he pointed towards a room.- “I think our clothes might be in there. If anything Charlotte we could in fact just find a kimono for you to wear instead of the robe.” -he was in fact still in a daze at Emushere he knew that it was due anytime next thing we needed was a bag of catnip.-
-Conan and Charlotte would notice the Chichagwa’s running from the bathhouse with towels and a kimono as they started running after Emushere yelling.- “NO EMUSHERE YOUR NOT DRY YET!!!” -the four chichagwa’s kept running as if they were moving in a pack formation ready pounce her. As they too vanished into the Garden’s of Den Lira.-
Garden of Den Lira
-Arren stood there as he heard Seven speak about his sister only to reach into his kimono pulling out a picture of Iris as he waited for Seven to finish his statement.- “He’s just saying that. No one could look like you. I’m your twin, and I look nothing like you. Thank goodness for that too. Fancy me with purple hair. Eww.” -Arren’s ear flickered for a second. Only to for him to offer the picture to Luna as he said.- “you look exactly like Iris my Granddaughter. Other than she had blonde hair and blue eyes like her father. I think you have already seen this picture before.” -The picture was the same of the one that was seen in trek. In the picture there are two people behind a small girl looking to be about 5 years old. With the two older people looking both exactly like Conan in a younger age he looked happy from his smile and him dressed in his Kimono that was black. The woman next to him was of his wife Sirah who had blonde hair and green eyes she looked so beautiful in his light teal kimono her figure was definitely something to talk about. As the little girl was in the picture was something else. Even at her age of looking about five years old she looked a lot like luna other than height. All the facial features were the same other than the hair and eyes. While Luna had Purple hair the girl hand blonde hair. The girls eyes were blue exactly like Conan’s eyes. She had features from both the mother and father.-
-As Arren displayed the picture to both of the twins he heard a noise of the small Kilargwa coming forth behind him running with her staff that was broken. He left the picture in Luna’s care for her to examine only to turn around seeing that Emushere was still wet, not just wet completely soaked as she said to him.- “Arren fix now?” -trying to offer him the staff and orb as he sighed taking orb and the staff looking at it with seeing it had a finger missing from the holster for the orb to sit on. Only to place it together. As he placed the finger on the staff the material instantly started to seal itself back together as the orb was placed back on top of the fingers.-
-As Arren started to work on her staff the chichagwa’s were not far behind her as they yelled again.- “EMUSHERE YOUR NOT DONE!” -They came at her full blast as it sounded like small stamp-peed coming towards her. The Chichagwa made the turn into the gardens two with towels ready to pounce on her. As they jumped on top of her hopping to dry her off in the process of the other two with her kimono struggling to get it on her rolling around with her like a funny cartoon brawl breaking out.-
-Hopefully the Chichagwa’s were successful in doing this since she was naked and she could get a major cold being as soaking wet as she was. The Chichagwa’s struggled during this and if they did do it right they would jump back running away with the towels into the house leaving Emushere completely clean and dressed in her Kimono. They left one tiny detail left on her they did her hair giving her nice pink bow on her head. She looked adorable with it between her ears even if it was over sized for her.-
-While the Chichagwa’s were working on Emushere to get her dressed Arren had finished her staff only to hand it too her as they finished saying to her.- “done now don’t go breaking it again Emushere. I cant always be fixing it.” -Arren looked towards the kids as he said.- “Emushere please meet Charlotte’s Children Seven and Luna. They came to Den Lira to see both Conan and Charlotte.” -he pointed to the twins as he wondered if Anya and Sarah alone with the other girl would come out of the house. As he said to them.- “Anya, Sarah and the woman in the house please come out and join us in the Garden. I am sure everyone would like to see who is all here while we wait for Charlotte and the other.” -he stood there with his staff close to him leaning on it. Waiting for everyone to appear.-
-Rika who was finally let go and had regained herself after being squeezed by Luna she started to slowly sneak away seeing she had not finished her noddles only to get up slowly creeping away. As she looked over to the Twins before bolting to the other side of the Garden hiding behind some rose bushes hopping she could finally find the peace and quiet she needed.-
-Anya heard Gabriel’s answer as she blinked a few times.- “Yes I did save her. And you are most welcome, Ma’am. I would of done anything to keep your sister, safe,” -Anya smiled as she said looking to her sister Sarah saying in a very polite tone.- “Thank you.” -Anya had seen the Silverfang symbol on her back shrugging it off since she had seen the sign before but couldn’t place it anywhere since she was more worried about Sarah. Both of the girls looked up as they figured he would want them outside as Anya helped her sister to her feet as she said.- “Well time to see Arren again. Lets hope we don’t have to transform here.” -Both Anya and Sarah walked outside the small house seeing the Garden of Den Lira as they both couldn’t believe that the flowers were so grand it remind them so much of home even though it had been a year since they had seen the planets of the Magellanic Galaxy . Even though the Gorya Empire they more about was the one ruled by Shadow himself. Void was a beautiful planet and had Gardens that they used to play in so many years ago. It seemed to make them tear up as the Garden so Den Lira were a mirror image of the Gardens that their Creator had once made for them.-
-Faust was getting angry till he noticed thhat Imayaruk was trying to get him off his game. Faust laughed hearing the next phrase of the man’s statement.- “So Slave then, or do you not like being called Master by woman that would submit to you? Either way she clearly is a bigger threat then you human.” -Faust couldn’t help but laugh as he said in such a joking tone.- “You don’t understand who I am do you? I am one of the Necromancer’s that helped take down the great Shadow Eris Gorya!” -he grinned as he placed his hand on his blade only to say.- “Yes I may not have given the final blow to that man. But I was the one that helped my Teacher defeat him.” -he laughed as he pointed at Imayaruk saying to him in such a tone.- “You have no right to talk boy! By your moves and by your own clothing I can see That man was your brother. Your the youngest of the Goryan prince!” -he laughed only to hear everything that was going between Daren and Imayaruk.-
-Daren smirked hearing Faust and Imayaruk but soon to frown hearing the entire statement.-“Nay feels like half an eon then again you know how screwy time can be traveling the worlds Apprentice.” “Well it seems you made the freaks day So how about you take his ghastly girlfriend while i handle the Moron, sound good Apprentice?” -Daren said to Imayaruk in a serious tone. Wielding his blade out from his body placing his hand on the hilt.- “Imayaruk you know my name. I maybe the Apprentice of your brother but you need take learn to know that your choices are not ideal. You always seem to take on things that you may not over come. In this choice I am going to say No.” -he saw Faust was starting to catch on to their plans quickly. As Daren brought his blade to the left side of him looking to preform Bukdo- justu known for being used as a drawing kanai technique waiting for Faust to make his move.-
-Faust quickly looked at Daren as he started laughing as he said.- “So your the apprentice of the great Shadow Eris Gorya! Well then Daren Telreckic! WE SHALL SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO! ELIZA GO PLAY WITH THE YOUNG PRINCE FOR A WHILE!” -Eliza jumped into the air quickly moving at an accelerated speeds faster than she was before. She had been waiting to build up her power aiming straight towards him. As her Cleaver-scythe slowly started to produce black flames just like her Master’s did as well. How was this possible could it have been from that fact she had taken Kuria’s life as a blood doll? Or was it connected to Faust as well it was seeming to be unknown by the naked eye. As she sudden was above Imayaruk swinging down in a straight vertical pattern hopping to slice Imayaruk in half. Faust looked back at Daren as he quickly darted towards him wielding his as he swung in the same diagonal direction before towards Imayaruk hopping to cut him in half.-
-Daren saw straight through this attack and quickly pulled out his blade as the wind instantly picked around him channeling his own energy through the kanai as he clashed with Faust’s blade only to say in such a emotionless tone.- “Your flames will not touch me Faust and for this I will not let you go any further.” -Daren’s blade would not rot or rust as in the fine line of millimeters there was a gape between the blades that if you paid attention you could seen. Daren saw Eliza above Imayaruk as he yelled out.- “IMAYARUK ABOVE YOU!” -he turned back his focus towards Faust again as he was waiting for the moment to break Faust’s guard.-
-It seems that the battle has just begun for both Daren and Imayaruk. Only the Destiny’s fate will guide them through this never ending battle between the Darkness and the Light. Shall we seen what is in story for them. very soon a great Evil will enter the streets of Lorewall-
Traditionally, a bathhouse is a tranquil place, for relaxation and reflection; of cleansing, and above all, its to wash your cares away. That being said, the mad antics of Emushere had made it anything but. From driving Conan to distraction and upsetting hordes of Chichagwa that were just trying to do their job; Charlotte had had enough. Blinking rapidly from the incessant chatter of the deranged cat creature, Charlotte rejected Conan’s advice that she should dress in a kimono, since anyone who is anyone knows how long they take to put on, and not only that, Charlotte was keen to see her twins; Luna and Seven. Not only did she miss them, but she knew the antics those two could get up to unsupervised. Patting Conan’s arm lightly, she said.
“I think I will go find something a little easier to wear, like a silken twin set, but thanks for the advice.”
Finding a small change room, she asked one of the Chichagwa, if they could find her a twin set, preferably with pants, as opposed to a skirt, and thankfully the Chichagwa obliged her with a black silken shirt and pants, with silver thread trim. Putting it on and discarding her robe, she swept her hair up behind her into a loose bun, and when happy with her appearance, she rejoined Conan to go meet with her children in the Garden of Den Lira.
Garden of Den Lira
Having been shown the picture of Arren’s granddaughter, it was plain as day to see the resemblance between Luna and Iris, who had blonde hair instead of the lilac which Luna bore. Luna held the photograph, admiring it, while sure enough the Kilargwa had finally reached the garden, with of course the Chichagwa in hot pursuit. The noise was terrific, and even Seven couldn’t hold back the laughter when the Chichagwa and the Kilagwa got into a massive brawl. It really was the silliest thing he had seen, but the end result would have her dressed. Thankfully. Charlotte and Conan would not far behind, and naturally both the children were keen to see their mother again
The Children weren’t too keen on the wild Kilargwa, even Seven holding back from his usual childish antics and phrases. Something about this creature was unsettling. Maybe with its staff fixed, she might behave.
Gabriel looked over to Arren then moved to look at the others who were just standing in the hallway of the Japanese style home that felt very comforting to her. Her eyes lowered down to the Kilargwa who wore a big pink bow on top of her head with a scent of lavandar hitting her nose. She gave a chuckle, figuring out that this creature just had a bath, looking up to see the twins as well as she crossed her arms, trying to get comfortable.
Emushere tugged at Arrens Kimono and held up the staff once more, all the while keeping an eye on the children and others. She had been alone for so long she was untrusting of anything including Arren. In her mind even Arren wasn’t trustworthy cause he was just a constuct if he was the real Arren it wouldn’t of taken her a year to return home after finding the body…
