Reia heard a crash. 'Iken...' Being Iken's 'Partner in Crime' the young fairy-shifter got a move on doing whatever she could to get her friend to safety. She had split from him when he went to a library of sorts. She had no doubt that he was still there.
The girl, in the form of a winged cat, moved stealthily along the hallway to the place where she had left Iken. She could tell when she was getting closer because she could smell the smoke. When she finally got to the library area, as she called it, he was gone. 'I'm going on an Iken hunt... again...' she thought unexcitedly. Without further to do, she opened her mouth in an attempt to pick up his scent.
'There it is' she thought and she tore down the hall, took a sharp right and say Iken foolishly taking on a room of demons. 'Of course he is.' She moved to the next room and waited for an opportune moment to strike.
'Calimus! I'm summoning you now.'
'Alright Reia, I'm ready.' Her dragon friend replied.
"Calimus, I summon thee to me!" Reia muttered softly. Within seconds a large golden dragon appeared right next to her. Luckily for Reia, nobody would hear the sound of the summoning due to a large demon voice speaking to Iken.
Without warning, Reia signaled for Calimus to blast the wall with his hot fire.
"God Iken what did you do now?" the fairy-shifter asked when the fire had cleared away.
A young man over six foot, and broad shoulders stood up. *Iken walked out from behind the wall revealing the rest of his features. *His wavy brown hair stood up slightly due to a natural part in his hair.* The blue in his eyes shined bright complimenting his giant grin on his face. *Iken's cheap looking smile was directed towards*Reia, and Calimus. *A pulsating power could be felt coming from Iken as Calimus got closer. *He reached behind his back, and underneath his trench coat. *The source of the power that pulsated into Iken was revealed. *A glowing red sword with a dragon head hilt that had glowing ruby eyes. *With a shaky arm Iken overcame the will of the sword, sheathing it. *Iken took a deep breath and began to speak to his partner in crime.
*"Oh I'm just trying to save the future of good magic as we know it. *Since the Charmed One's retired, the magic school has been taken over yet again by demons. *Gaa this dang thing wants dragon blood really bad. *Every time I get close to one I want to...To just tear right into them!" Iken exclaimed as his eyes went red from the power of the sword.
Iken looked around the room, scanning it with his eyes every charred remain there was. *Nothing of the room Iken had seen before still existed, after the fiery blast from Calimus. *Charred ashed from the small army of demon's was all that was left, the floor was*blackened from the demons explosive demise. *Looking up Iken was a lone chandelier burning was the closest thing to the normal of the once grand room. *
All of the sudden a blood curtailing scream filled the air and the school it's self. *The red in Iken's eyes dissipated as the concern filled them. *Iken ran down the hall toward the source of the scream. *Two demons walking along the hallway had the misfortune of meeting Iken, with one powerful swipe Iken's sword slices the demons in half. *An electrical blast burst from*Iken's sword destroyed the halls near by as the two demons burst into flames, turning into ash as all demons do when they die. *
"Hehe....I overdid it again." Iken chuckled as he sped around a corner. *
A thick wooden door bursts into pieces as it meets with Iken's fist. *A tall creature with a black cloak and pale white skin stood over a girl torturing her. *The aura of the man sent chills through the whole area making his snow white skin seem more like snow. *The hooded creature and Iken had the same idea as both shot lightning bolts that tore through the air. *Both lightning attacks hit in the middle, however that's where the similarities ended. *Iken's lightning bolt is pushed back within seconds, blowing the teen through wall after wall. *Skin and blood charred black smoldered from Iken's chest. *Iken found himself taking hard deep breaths, gasping from air. *Pain shot from Iken's chest to back as blood began to pour out of his chest down his front and out his back down the wall he leaned against. *
"Wow who would have thought we would run into the Source himself." Iken said as the life slowly drained away from his eyes. *
The creature with the pale white skin and long black cloak slowly came towards Iken. *He stepped over fragments of the walls Iken had gone through. *The closer he got the more control he lost.
Reia nearly hit Iken. She knew that evil and slightly dangerous sword was out to get her beloved Calimus but she thought that he really needed to put that stupid thing away sometimes and get, I don't know, a NORMAL sword. Luckily a scream had interrupted the whole problem, saving Reia from smacking Iken on the head with her staff. But of course, Iken, being his typical Heroic self had to go an FIND where the scream came from and save the damsel in distress... yet again.
having nothing else to do, and Being Iken partner of sorts, she took after him. The man was fast, but not faster than Reia when she few with her fairy wings.
'Why am I moving so slowly!?'
'Because you're still a cat...'
The Fairy Shifter stopped, looked down and noticed she was still covered with cat fur. 'Oh yeah...' She quickly changed to her typical fairy self and bolted toward the scream. On her way she noticed a pile of ash that just screamed "IKEN WAS HERE PLAYING THE HERO YET AGAIN."
"He over does things a lot..."
Reia finally approached some wooden splinters that probably came from a door that Iken had probably split open with his fist. Of course Reia was right on the nose with her thoughts, as she always was.
When Reia got a little closer, she saw a thing with white skin and Iken, laying on the floor, covered with blood... again. If this had been a few years ago, she might have been worried, but she wasn't.
Reia hid behind something quickly, luckily the thing didn't see her.
"Iken my friend, damaged you are,
I shall heal you so you're skin will not mar." Reia whispered her general healing charm.
((I've made it that Iken and Reia were friends for some time, hope you don't mind.))
A lone man stood at the entrance to the school. the remains of a few demons were resting by his feet. "So this is the place huh? Finely after so long I may get a clue to continue my search." The man wore a long black and red robe with a wight cloth was tied around his stomach. He had red hair that went down to his shoulders and deep blue eyes. He then slowly walked up to the entrance and proceed to search through out the halls of the once great school. *
The white light of the healing charm consumed Iken blinding the Source momentarily. *Unfortunately for the Source that's all the time Iken need to lose full control. *The sword quaked with power blasting it's self out of the sheath and floating into Iken's hands. *Whether it's dragons or the Source himself the sword craved power. *Flames burst forth covering the sword, next came the crackle of electricity as it surged through the metal of the sword. *
Iken stood back up as the power of the sword began to transform Iken. *The bright sapphire blue of Iken's eyes converted to that of blood red. *His pupils dilated then reshaped into vertical slits similar to that of a dragons. *An aura of power and death formed around Iken as more of the swords large power took control of Iken. *Every ounce of demonic power in Iken's body awakened due to the sword. *Iken's skin became red and stressed from the natural power caused intense pain that would make any normal person wish for death. *However Iken's new found power increased his rage to even greater levels than that of the pain. *
With a mighty swipe Iken slash at the Source with the powerful and power hungry blade. *A dense shield of energy appeared around the Source protecting him from most of the blast. *A stream of fire in the shape of a dragon with a dense center of electricity slammed the Source through the ceiling and kept going for around 100 more meters. *With a god like blast of lightning Iken's attack was dissipated, the power of the Source made Iken's attack look like nothing more than a small liter. *With a wound similar to what Iken had only moments ago the Source vanished with a shimmer. *
Iken's already power drained body fell to the ground as the sword drained the reserves of power in Iken. *The sword smugly float back into it's sheath and resting place. *Iken smiled and exhausted smile as he painfully rolled himself onto his back. *The red stressed condition of his skin and gone away, Iken's skin way paler than usual. *Every muscle in Iken's body jolted as pain ripple through his now frail body. *
"Hey, is she okay?" Iken asked with out any concern for his own sorry condition. ** * * * *
Before Reia answered Iken, she took her mighty staff in her hands gripped it hard and walked over to stand next to Iken.
THWAP! She struck Iken hard across the head.
"DOYOU EVER THINK YOU MORON!? USING A BLAST OF MAGIC THAT BIG COULD ALERTOTHER PEOPLE HERE AND LORD KNOWS THAT WE DON'T NEED ANYMORE TROUBLECONSIDERING THAT RIDICULOUS STATE YOU'RE IN!" Reia screamed whilerepeatedly smacking Iken repeatedly with her beloved staff. "AND AS FORHER. WHY DO YOU CARE SO MUCH! YOU COULD DIE IF YOU PULL ANOTHERFREAKING STUNT LIKE THAT AGAIN YOU MORON!"
After taking all ofher rage out on Iken, Reia finally calmed down. "I don't need to loseyou..." Reia glanced at the woman passed out. "She seems fine. I'llheal her if she NEEDS it. From what I can see, she'll survive."
Withoutanother word, she sat down next to her friend. And then she decided tolay next to him. "I'd do something for you but you know as well as Ithat I can't do anything for depleted magic stores. And I'm still notfully recovered from our last adventure in which you played the heroyet again." Reia yawned, "Do you remember our last adventure...?" Reiawas falling asleep slowly. When she healed Iken like she had donepreviously, she had exhausted a lot of her magic stores. Reia needed amagic boost but that could wait. Right now they had* mission and theFairy Shifter was focused.
Within moments she was passed out. Hershort brown hair was covering her eyes and her wings were positioneduncomfortably under her but she still stayed asleep.
*Hetalia slowly came to again after what seemed like forever. When she awoke she heard someone yelling. then everything grew somewhat quiet again except for the 'other' two's slow breathing. though she was a little frightened of being shocked again, Hetalia cautiously called out. "Hello? Who's there? Can one of you help me get out of these?" She pleaded and pulled at the chains for emphasis. Then flinched a little expecting to be shocked again despite her minds insistance that her tormentor was gone.
Iken just took what he had coming with a wince. *He knew what she was feeling was even worse than Reia's strike to his worn out worn down muscles. *A small grin appeared on Iken's face momentarily when Reia sat next to him.
When Reia mentioned their last mission that ended up similar to this one. *Well except the fact that time Iken's heart actually stopped beating, meaning*in magical terms he died. *Iken remembered further back to why he risk life an limb, a powerful demon appears firing off a flame thrower scorching Reia's wings. *This act doomed the demon, as Iken let loose. *However this was still not enough against the demon, as the creature stuck Iken down and ultimately got away. *
Iken put his hand on Reia's head. *
"I wont let anyone die for me. *No one!" Iken exclaimed to a passed out Reia. *
"One second I'm coming." Iken responded to the bound witch. *
Iken staggered to his knees, his muscles screamed in agony from even that simple movement. *Using his arms to push himself up to his feet, Iken wobbled for a moment. *After that moment was over Iken fell right on his face with a hard bone shattering thud. *Blood from Iken's nose began to drip down, then pours down his face. *Iken wipes the blood with his sleeve seemingly stopping the bleeding. *
With another try Iken makes it to his feet and stabilizes himself. *With a might heave he picks up the small fairy, holding her in his right arm. *The small woman felt like she weighed a ton to Iken's damage structure. *Slowly, but surly Iken made his way back to the room where he had originally encountered the Source. *One by one Iken snapped the straps and ropes holding*Hetalia down, even with the damage he sustained Iken still made freeing*Hetalia with his bare hands look like childes play. *Iken finally finished breaking off all of the straps holding down the witch. *
