-It had been a very long day for Aegis; walking sixty miles through vast desert, looking for a shiny thing that was probably nonexistent, and dodging the occasional bandit. It was tough times in Clauden, most definitely.-

-Aegis stopped to rest beside a jutting rock, sitting in what little shade it provided. He sighed and slowly closed his eyes.-

Were it not for his height that gave the appearance of spryness, Benjamin Rowley might have been mistaken for someone on the brink of death. His shriveled hands gripped a gnarled wooden cane in one hand and grasped a bundle wrapped in a blue gingham handkerchief on his back with the other as he stepped further down into the ravine, his keen, sunken eyes searching for any signs of water. As the ground leveled out and formed desert again, it was littered with the shining, bleached white bones once more, the bigger ones of cattle and the more delicate of men who had passed during their journey. Benjamin sighed as he realized that the climb had all been for naught; there were no signs of water, and he knew his time was running short. He found a large boulder, beside which he sat and took the bundle from his back and unwrapped it.

"Did you find water?"

He looked down at her. One would be hard-pressed to find individuals so different. Where he was smeared with grease and dirt, she was clean. Her pink checkered dress, white socks edged in pink lace, and pink shoes with a smart brass clasp on each foot bespoke of a mother's care.

"What happened to Amos, and Cyrus, and mother?"

The man sighed again.

"Jacob and Isaac left us first, along with your poor father. And then Amos and Cyrus a few days back. Your mother held on almost to the end."

The child's eyes brimmed with tears.

"We will soon be with your dear mother. There is nothing to eat or drink in this barren land, I am afraid."

The child's face brightened.

"But then we have nothing to fear. We will soon see mother again, and she will greet us with fresh-baked scones covered in honey and cream."

The man smiled at the child's optimism.

"We must pray, Kasia, that the Lord finds some way to bring mercy upon us."

The child nodded, and both the wrinkled head of the man and the dimpled head of the girl bowed in prayer, and the second shortly fell asleep. Benjamin kept his hand around her as they lay against the great boulder. He could no longer fight his fatigue anymore after three days with no rest. His eyes slowly slid downward and he joined the girl in sleep. As they slept, the soft wind of the desert played with the girl's dress, blowing it to and fro, throwing it askance beyond the boulder time and time again, becoming a beacon of bright color among the desolate colors of the land.

-Aegis woke suddenly when he heard the faint voices. He quickly stood up and looked around, wondering how long he had slept. His eyes widened in horror when the sight was printed into his mind.-

-A large and hulking beast was quickly making its way towards the group that had woke him up. It was carrying a large club made from stone; it was almost as tall as three two-story buildings. Its eyes clearly read blood lust.-

"You there! Quickly! Run!"

-He yelled to the group, hoping they'd hear him.-

Tall grasses began to appear, outlined in the gold of afternoon sunlight. A cold, metal vessel was passed into his hand and he drank from it, feeling the cold liquid slide along his throat. Was this heaven? He looked down to his side. But no, it couldn't be, for where was Kasia?

"You there! Quickly! Run!"

He heard the sound of gunshots in the distance, but his legs seemed to ignore him, staying glued into place. He stared at the grass, trying to think of what to do. Suddenly, he realized how odd the grass looked. It was almost blue. He started struggling even more fervently, until the vegetation faded into the desolate background of the dessert. The glare of the sun caused him to blink and he rubbed at his eyes.

I can see.When you stay low nothing happens
Does it feel right? Late at night
Things I thought I put behind me
Haunt my mind


The sun sparkled on the yellow surface, the glass that had been smoothened down to the make this walkerable on was twinklering like stars in the night sky that capped over half the world.
Four white paws that padded across the deserted island was actual fact a human girl. But she wasnt normal like the other's that landed here. She did indeed fall here, because she is a angel, but a fallen at that, as she walked her sensative nose smelt something unusual.

Also another smell also came to her attention. Was it a beast? another creature that hadnt been dicovered yet? Without realising it she had started to run, in a quickened pace. The horizon seemed to be coming into view, but a group of people were running towards her! " Oh god, " She thought to herself.
She carried on running through the group of people and wondered if they caught her white coat through all their panic! God humans can be so misleading sometimes.

-As soon as Aegis knew that the others were running, he caught the presence of a few inhumanities; shaking that feeling from his mind, he dashed towards the two others, noticing the inhumanity a tiny bit father off.-

"What is wrong here? We must go!"

-He looked behind him. The gigantic beast was closing in quickly, and almost too quietly. But to come to mind, he wondered why it was even attacking.-

"We must go!"

"We must go!"

He blinked up at where the sound was coming from and saw a man standing over at him, his face stricken with panic. A monstrous beast was standing behind him, its muscles rolling under layers of sinew. He quickly sprang up, grabbing Kasia.

"What should we do? It will just follow us for miles. There is no escape here!" he exclaimed, looking at the desert, his eyes squinted.

Belle dashed and turned in her panic to save the thing that had been grabbed by the creature who she hasnt even seen yet, but with her clear eyesight, a monster like that wasnt hard to see.
Belle realised that if she saved the creature, she would be a hero... But Belle didnt really want to cause a fuss....

Belle still in her run, saw the creature...It was huge and she couldnt make out what it was, but she jumped up and grapped onto the creature's arm. Her fangs went into his flesh and started to get to bone. " Leave these people alone! And go and pick on someone your own size!" She shouted with a mouthful of flesh and skin.

-Aegis was relieved that Belle was doing something to slow it down. But it wouldn't be enough.-

"Sir, we have to find a place to hide. I don't know how to stop this thing. I haven't fought one yet."

-He looked back at Belle's futile attempt to harm the gargantuan beast. He couldn't stand it.-

"There is no where to hide. There isn't even a piece of shade besides this boulder for miles!" he exclaimed, his voice filled with fear as he grasped Kasia closely.

He squinted up to see the beast, its head obscured by the reflection of the sun's rays against his retina. Raising his arm to shield his eyes, he could see blood dripping over a slate blue hulk of a creature. He stumbled on his feet at the sight of it and gasped in shock.

"Why hasn't it killed us already?!"

-Aegis was astounded that it hadn't killed them yet, too. He looked up at it; it had stopped abruptly, Belle still hanging from its arm.-

"I don't know..."

-Maybe it was after something? Maybe it was friendly?-

He stared at it, his mouth hanging slightly ajar. Suddenly, he noticed that Kasia was missing. Looking around, he finally spotted her stumbling towards the beast.

"Kasia-!" he exclaimed, running and reaching out to grab her.

The beast pushed him aside as Kasia reached his feet. A blue glow erupted there, and spread from his legs to his other appendages and finally his torso. The creature picked her up and threw her away from himself, high into the air.

-Aegis, appalled at the creature's actions, leaped into the air towards Kasia.-

"I got her!"

-He neared her slowly. He was losing velocity, and quickly. The creature, staring silently at Aegis, had a silent glint in it's rocky eyes.-

The beast raised its arm towards the man who had just leapt into the air and blasted him with a jet of blue fire. Having gotten his opponent out of the way, the creature continued by slowly lumbering towards the girl, who had been dropped onto the ground, his heavy footsteps causing the stones to tremble against the tightly packed sand.

-Aegis thudded against the ground. Being a man trained in the ways of fire, he wasn't phased that much by the creature's burst.-

"I'll get her. Stay here."

-He got up and sprinted towards the beast. He began by rubbing his hand together furiously. In a few seconds, a white flame appeared in his right hand. He leaped into the air once more, and thrust his fiery hand into the creature's head. The rock it was made of cracked and burned.-

-Aegis fell to the ground, satisfied at the damage he had done. He darted towards Kasia, being much more agile than the lumbering beast, and scooped her up, darting back towards her guardian.-
