ZZS3 E9 Traitor? Rallow's Phase mode!Previous
While nearly everyone ate at dinner Salu alu went snooping into Shallow's things.
"Come on! Where is the Raven Stone!? Oh..... Seems as though I WILL have to go with that nut in the head, Rallow was it? She must still be in her room" Salu said laying her hand on her chin thinking, she then moved on to where Rallow was strangely in a corner sitting facing outside instead of in her eyes wide pupils dialated wide, so wide you could barely see the color of her eyes, her pose was in a disturbing manner that when Salu saw her she stopped, but kept composure.
"Miss Rallow Siminova?" She said addressing her.
Rallow creepily turns her head to face her her pupils thinning but not to normal stature, moving almost doll-like to look at her.
Salu could tell she had her attention.
"How badly do you want your sci..." before she could finish Rallow had lept from her spot and had her hand on Salu's throat pinning her in seconds to the wall
As Rallow slept Shallow tended to Nayu and Janis's wounds but no one for some reason couldn't find Salu.
She was being tended to by Dragoness who had grown from a mere flea size to a large eagle now tending to her wounds more miraculously than the others would have somewhere in the woods, Ethno who had slept through the whole thing went to find her only to have Dragoness hiss at him.
"HEY! How was I to know" He said as she hissed at him again hopping at him to make him back off growing in size to intimidate.
"Okay okay! I get it I get it! O~O Don't eat me! Eesh.
Dragoness then once more turned to Salu and tended to her wounds, however moments later a russling was heard in the bushes and Ethno lunged, no one would be able to uncover his secret anyways and unleashed a full on attack on whoever only to get tackled to the ground hard by a lion khajit!
"WHERE IS SHE!?"
"Oh shit.." Ethno said going back to his whimpy self just in time.
Dragoness stopped and stood aside as the lion man stood and walked towards Salu's unconcious body.
"All this so she could get back in." He said almost looking somberful at her body." Dragoness whimpered as he patted her head. "You've been a good girl Dragoness."
Ethno seeing the moment stood up too and said.
"So uh... who are you anyways?
" The lion then summoned a weapon and aimed it at his throat, in the darkness his face could barely be made out but his eyes were clear, it meant don't ask.
"None of your damn business argonian. If I were you, I'd crawl back to the desert and shed that skin you just wet right now, from what I can tell you were moving in on Salu, she's no one's but her own, got that lizard."
"HEY NOW! I've been uh." Ethno said as the blade was closer to his throat the lion not smiling but glaring harder.
"And even though she's banished, I will still protect MY FRIEND! Am I clear?"
Ethno nodded. "Crystal."
"Good." And with that ran off after checking to see if her wounds were dressed decided to carry her to camp.
Back at the camp.
As the wounds were finished being dressed the general addressed the girls.
"First of all Shallow congratulations on finally being able to summon your families holy weapon, now as for Rallow, there is a reason she needs to be around her weapon in order to stay sane, she's linked to it, I had to practically attack the weapon to make sure it never went to Rallow but then it turns out it can rip portals showing the past.
Shallow, Rallow is dangerous by nature, she needed something that would seal away the darkness, remember you never knew of her existance till you were five right?"
"Yeah o.o, kinda was sad about it but dad said that my twin had to grow up elsewhere for a while.
"It was for that reason, your father had to follow and that is why your mother took care of you, he was searching for a way to seal the evil away.
He found one, this weapon is not ordinary, it has a soul too, but a kind one, its creator was once in a bitter rival with his brother and he killed his brother but not before his brother wounded up sealing his own soul into the blade, in order to do what was right he controlled it so that the blade without the other brothers knowing killed the other one in his sleep.
But the kind brother could never get out of the blade, the scicle, he vowed to make it worthwhile and help to use his powers only for good, your father heard of the tale and searched high and low for it and when he did the blade willingly wrapped its chain around Rallows hand and controlled the evil within her, cause it knew she had a sister to care for.
That is why whenever it is away Rallow can't control herself, she instantly goes into phase mode and destroys anything in search of Mr. Scicle, because she is scared of hurting the ones she cares about.
She herself hardly notices it, its only when she's apart that she realizes her evil self is loose."
"Guess that makes sense of a weapon to do that." Said a young man making everyone turn to see a lion carrying Salu bandaged up.
"WHO ARE YOU!?" General Skia demanded.
"Whoa old man, calm down, I only came to return her, and this guy." He said glaring at Ethno who whimpers by.
Nayu growled at him making Ethno jump out of his skin and turns to the lion.
"Yeah, so?" He said turning to Shallow who recognized him also.
"YOUR ABITUS! from the Shrine of the dragon!"
He shrugged and put Salu down.
"Call me Abe, I'm just doing whats right thats all."
"Course you are, you weild the Dragons fang." Nayu said drinking carefully.
"Yep and your the runt weilding the Finera's flame, and your the one whoes bound to weild the Griffin's sword."
Nayu slammed her cup on the table.
"I do have a name, and so does she!" She growled turning to him again.
"Nayu! And I don't like it how weird this is!"
"Sorry, didn't know the runt had claws."
"Do not disgrace my students in front of me boy!" General Skia said going to him.
"Thank you for returning my student, but your not allowed on these grounds, leave."
"General! Permission to show this proud piece of shit why its disrespectful to dishonor any of the other family that bear the elements!"
Abitus turned his nose up at Nayu as she stood growling at him.
The General looked at Nayu, she was certainly ready to fight, especially to defend her families honor over the dragons.
"Permitted, your allowed onto the grounds till after the fight."
"Great, keep me here longer! I don't have time to waste on a pathetic..."Nayu lunged at him punching him in the nose so hard she cracked it, it caught him by such surprise that he didn't have time to rebound as he slammed against the ground on his back.
In the campfire Nayu's eyes glinted showing her anger as she twisted herself in midair and landed on her feet.
Abe sat up and wiped his nose feeling the bones.
"SHIT YOU FAELA!" He said roaring as Nayu roared back before General Skia flew scratching him in the face gaining his attention, as Janis grabbed Nayu holding her back.
"LET ME AT HIM!"
"Nayu, you and Abe will wait till tomorrow! That is an order!" General Skia yelled.
Both glare at each other then turn around heading in opposite directions Janis followed Nayu to make sure she calmed down while Shallow wasn't sure if she should follow Abe.
