Sea Fern|Baske|Scytha

~Sea Fern~

"Yeah," the other marine hybrid replied. She didn't know if he was answering her question about Aki or her question about if he was Ok. A gun floated by,Aki's friend picking it up. "What the heck is a gun doing here?!" Sea Fern asked. The blond haired,snake tailed marine hybrid aimed the gun at the large white hybrid and fired,hitting the hybrid in the back of the head. Aki ran away,presumably back to camp. Sea Fern swam over to the mystery hybrid. She looked at the twitching hybrid,he strangely reminded her of Faolan...

 

~Baske~

"And right there,the Little Dipper," Ryu said,pointing at the constellation. Out of the corner of her eye Baske saw a streak of light,a shooting star. "Over there,Look!," Ryu had seen it too. Another shooting star appeared higher in the sky ((a real one this time)) "Another one! Quick,make a wish!" Baske said,pointing. Closing her eyes,Baske made a wish, 'I wish to someday be an astronaut and explore space,' Baske thought. She opened her eyes and smiled up at the stars. 

 

~Scytha~

The dragon hybrid shuddered,seemingly reacting to something Aki had said. As they got to the shore the marine hybrid Triton surfaced a short ways away and shot the white dragon with a pistol he had somehow acquired. The dragon hybrid fell,half in the water and half out. He spasmed occasionally. Sea Fern appeared,swimming up to the shore. Aki ran up to Scytha "Glad your here,he's a hunter. Can you watch him for now? I'll notify Faolan," she said and then ran back towards camp. Scytha stared at the dragon hybrid,he look almost exactly like Faolan,just white... 'So Faolan has relations in those that hunt us,' Scytha thought.

✧ Aki ✧ Ryu ✧ Serephina ✧

Aki

At the call of his name, Faolan came jogging over as he instructed for everyone to stay where they were.
“What is it Aki? What did you find?” He asked worriedly when we met, “and what happened to you?”
“Don't worry about me right now,” I began saying as I led the way to where the hunter fell at a quick pace. “There’s this hunter, he's a white scaled dragon hybrid and he collapsed. I'm pretty sure he's under mind control like how Triton suggested the hunters may be. But the real guy inside seems to be fighting the mind control right now. And he can't seem to stop reminding me of you.”
Just as I finished giving the situation, we arrived by the mantis hybrid, but I was too breathless to speak. I mouthed ‘thank you’ to the hybrid and then noticed Sea Fern at shore, looking warily at the fallen hybrid.
Our fight must've disrupted her, I realized.
 
Ryu
Soon after, another shooting star appeared higher than the last.
“Another one! Quick,make a wish!” Baske said, pointing at it.
I closed my eyes and made a wish, In peace and prosperity, I wish humans and hybrids can live.
I opened my eyes and gazed at the endless wonder above. Emberlyn, something I don't want to lose, this really is. I’m sorry but the path I want to choose I think this is, and each night, the things I want to see.
 
Serephina
“All done. That ankle of yours will start to feel much better by tomorrow without a doubt, for now I want you to rest and try not to put weight on your ankle until tomorrow morning, ok? Is there anything else I can do for you dear?” The doctor asked warmly after she finished wrapping my ankle.
I shook my head, already content that I got treatment. “Thank you so much, Elizabeth. I’m sorry about today though...that I brought Harry here. I didn't know…”
I began to sniff, croaking out an apology. “I'm sorry.”

Xenophon ~ Male ~ Ghost Mantis

♪ Xenophon ♪

Xenophon watched the two hybrids as he cleaned off his arm, running it through his mouth-parts carefully. The female took her finger and dipped it into a honeycomb, drawing it back out and popping it into her mouth with a 'mmm'. Hawk followed after her, nodding to him. "Thank you. It is delicious." He said. "I-I-I know." Xenophon replied simply. At least they had appreciated it. He gave them a slight glance before drawing his scythe out towards the comb, breaking off a small section and nudging it back towards himself. With a bit of maneuvering he grabbed the piece and bit into it, a shiver of contentment running through his body. As he chewed he wondered if they could answer some of the questions he had. His curiousity had been nagging him all day. "W-w-w-ha..t iss.. D..N A?" He asked tilting his head, recalling the female mantis referring to the term earlier.

Faolan

I kept a worried look on my face as Aki pushed my concerns to one side in favor of whatever she had found. I followed her in a brisk stride but it felt like the world was coming to screeching halt when she described the hunter she had come across. Her description was the same as the creature that wore my father's skin, however my heart skipped a beat when she said that the hunter had some sort battle going on in his head.

We came upon the scene and with out a doubt it was the same hybrid I had fought earlier. I barely noticed Sea Fern and the mantis hybrid as I kept walking and knelt down to the slowly breathing body of the white hunter, dragon hybrid, and my father. "Hello?" I called quietly to the still form, placing my hand on his shoulder, "father?".

~the yin-yang dragons~

With a groan Salastar woke slowly at the sound and touch of the hybrid he had so longed to be with. Using his arms to prop himself up and Salastar looked up at his son and the few hybrids that were behind him, "either your marine friend has immaculate aim or was really lucky with that shot" Salastar said, his voice deep, rich, and void of the monotone of the robotic soldier. Faolan was on the verge of tears for it had been nearly 10 years since he had last seen and heard "his" father and not the robot that had hunted them.

In seeing his son like this Salastar spoke "it has been to long.." and with that the two contrasting dragon hybrids embraced in a hug that only a father and child would know. Tears leaked from both side's eyes as they sat there on the sandy beach.

Salastar pulled away slightly and placed his forehead against Faolan's, "I missed you so much.. ever since they took us from you I held hope that one of us, your mother or I, would survive to see you again.. I never missed you more than having to watch from afar as a robot controlled my body" he said as Faolan looked up through tear blurred eyes, "mother?" he asked, Salastar said nothing for he could not bring himself to say what had become of his wife and Faolan's mother.

Faolan shakily took a breath, "I thought I would never see you or her again.. that day and the days that followed.. they were to painful to remember.. I forgot until I ended up in the dome" he said as he pulled his head away and looked at the hybrids behind him, casting a fond glance at Aki. Faolan choked out a chuckle "he's my father" Faolan stated the obvious.

Rita Ritz|Mystery|Sea Fern

~Rita Ritz~

Rita turned her head sharply when she heard Aki's shouts. "Everyone stay where you are," Faolan said,walking off with Aki. Rita debated whether to go with them or not. Finally deciding to go after them she took off with long strides. Using her heat vision she soon found the others. Aki,Sea Fern,and the green mantis hybrid were all gathered around Faolan,who was hugging a white dragon hybrid. 'Isn't that the hybrid who was fighting Faolan?' Rita thought. "He's my father," Faolan told them happily. Rita was rather surprised by this,but there was major family resemblance. Rita smiled at Faolan "That's wonderful Faolan," she said,though she had a feeling there was something she was missing. 'Didn't that dragon hybrid heavily injure Faolan? What IS going on here?' Rita thought. 

 

~Mystery~

Mystery had gone to investigate when she had seen and smelled the smoke and fire. She had seen The Soldier dragging Aki onto shore,saw him get knocked down by a rubber bullet and she watched as he broke free from his mind control to reunite with Faolan,who was apparently his son. 'I knew there was some resemblance,' Mystery thought 'The scientists aren't going to like this!!!' Mystery quietly snuck away before any of them could notice her,she knew at least two of them probably had heat vision. Deciding to spend the night away from the escapees camp, Mystery swiftly flew through the forest until she came to a spot far enough away from the escapees that they probably wouldn't find her,but close enough that she wouldn't lose them if they moved. Sitting down in a large tree, she leaned back, staring absently in to space. 

 

~Sea Fern~

Faolan and Aki arrived. Faolan leaned over the white hybrid. "Hello? Father?" he said. The white dragon sat up "Either your marine friend has immaculate aim or was really lucky with that shot," the white dragon hybrid said. He looked at Faolan "It has been so long..." he trailed off and then he and Faolan hugged. "He's my father," Faolan said a few moments later. "Your dad? Good for you" Sea Fern said,almost bitterly. She realized how rude that sounded,she should be happy for Faolan. She smiled "Um,I mean its really great that you found your father! I'm guessing you guys haven't seen each other for a long time huh?"

✧ Aki ✧

Aki

I stood by the mantis hybrid as Faolan approached the Dragon hybrid. “Hello? Father?”
He's Faolan’s father? I thought, slightly shocked, but I knew all along, the resemblance between the black and white dragons had been calling out to me.
I felt a chill run up my back. The consecutive exposure to cold water today and yesterday was definitely going to affect my health and condition for the next few days at the least.
After the father and son had their moment, Faolan turned back to me, stating the rather obvious. “he's my father.”
I held my hands behind my back and smiled at the black and white dragons and remarked, “You take after him quite a lot.”
I turned to his father and bowed my head out of courtesy. “Nice meeting you. Um, sorry if you're hurt from all that.”

Faolan heard the kind words from Aki and Rita and was to happy to notice Sea Fern's more bitter tone. "Do not worry young lady, there is nothing you or any other hybrids here that can do anything that can compare to what I endured as I became the soldier you had been fighting" Salastar said as he released Faolan and shifted into a more comfortable position before standing up on what seemed slightly unsteady feet. Faolan stood with his father and stood next to the taller white dragon.

"Yes, we haven't, it has been nearly ten years since the day our house had been raided and we were split apart" Salastar said kindly to Sea Fern. "My name is Salastar and unfortunately it is still not quite safe for me to stay with you to lon... error 271, error 302..." he said before he began to spit our random error codes. Faolan looked at his father and Salastar closed his eye and shook his head, "sorry about that.. like I said it is still not safe for me to hang around you all for the scientist's programming in me is still active and dangerous" he said before side hugging his son with his arm. "I must warn you that it wont be this easy to down any other controlled soldiers, I was the prototype, the first successful soldier, but flawed and outdated" Salastar said ominously "to stop them will take more than bringing out the inside that has been fighting for a long time... you must destroy what commands them, the scientist also created injections that stimulate the portion of the brain that deals with memory, that will also aid and toppling other mindless soldiers".

Salastar stepped away from Faolan and walked a little way's towards the forest before turning around, "when I feel I am stable enough to provide information I will find you but it is to risky for me to travel with the group while still fighting the control they have over me, you were my original target to kill" Salastar said to his surprised son, a slight urgency in his voice. Faolan felt that everything had been going by to fast, he had just seen his father, not the robot in his body, and now he was leaving again. Deep down Faolan knew it was the best but he still wanted to be with his father that he had missed. "Till I see you all again, goodbye" the white dragon said before disappearing into the brush.

 

~Faolan~

I stood where I was slightly dumbfounded, the tears still fresh on my draconic cheeks. I had just seen my father, embraced with him and now he was gone once more.. but this time he had promised to return to me soon. I knew he feared harming me and I understood this but I would long for our next reunion. I looked at the hybrids who stood there on the beach with me, a happy smile on my face.

 

~Salastar~

He made his way through the forest, he begun to feel the sensation of losing his control over his body when he was near his son and felt it necessary to get away from him before something bad happened. Now in a more stable condition Salastar began hunting in the forest. He was not hunting animals, nor the escapee's, he was hunting the hunters themselves, might as well give them some help.

“Do not worry young lady, there is nothing you or any other hybrids here that can do anything that can compare to what I endured as I became the soldier you had been fighting,” Faolan’s father said, releasing his son from their embrace.
The statement made me wonder how much worse he had gone through. I quickly concluded it was probably worse than the weekly tests the scientists gave back at the Dome. And according to Triton, what they may plan to do to the rest of the captive hybrids, I added darkly, my thoughts drifted towards my sister, but I returned my attention back to the dragons to keep myself from getting lost in ominous thoughts.
“...has been nearly ten years since the day our house had been raided and we were split apart,” I heard the white scaled say. “My name is Salastar and unfortunately it is still not quite safe for me to stay with you to lon... error 271, error 302…”
More error codes came out and I began to worry about the much taller hybrid’s condition, but he closed his eyes and seemed to break out of the state he was in.
“sorry about that.. like I said it is still not safe for me to hang around you all for the scientist's programming in me is still active and dangerous,” he said. “I must warn you that it won't be this easy to down any other controlled soldiers, I was the prototype, the first successful soldier, but flawed and outdated. To stop them will take more than bringing out the inside that has been fighting for a long time... you must destroy what commands them, the scientist also created injections that stimulate the portion of the brain that deals with memory, that will also aid and toppling other mindless soldiers.”
I blinked, feeling dumbfounded. Ehh?
“Destroy what commands them,” I echoed Salastar’s words barely audibly.
Salastar stepped away and walked a little towards the forest before turning around toward Faolan, “when I feel I am stable enough to provide information I will find you but it is to risky for me to travel with the group while still fighting the control they have over me, you were my original target to kill.”
“Till I see you all again, goodbye,” the white dragon said before disappearing into the shadows of the forest.
My attention turned to Faolan, whose face wore a bright but bittersweet smile, fresh tears rolling down his face. I could only guess how he felt: like a piece of himself returning and pulling him together, but shortly after, leaving.
I looked out into the ocean again, the endless gap that could extinguish my flame with a lick. Nee, I’ll come to you soon and stop this.
((Icee, wanna do it now?))
 
 
Hawk
“I-I-I know.” Xenophon replied. 
We ate in silence for a while. I took a second dip of honey and licked at it.
Shortly after, Xenophon spoke up again, asking what DNA is. I looked over at his direction, noticing that it had gotten dark enough for my wolf’s night vision to kick in.
I thought for a moment, trying to figure out how to reply without getting the mantis hybrid confused with even more terms.
“Well, DNA is inside of us. It's like a map of our body...or something that tells our body how to build us. I think you’re some mix of human and mantis so you’ll have Human and Praying Mantis DNA.”
I looked over at Tigerlily to see if she had anything to add.

Tigerlily and Elizabeth Trail

~~Tigerlily~~

As I savored the gooey, sweet honey. Hawk joined in, taking his own swab of honey and licking it before he spoke, nodding his head to Xenophon "thank you. It is delicious.” Inwardly I thanked Xenophon as well and agreed with Hawk on the honey's taste, my 'mmm' alone said it all on my delightment towards the delicious snack. "I-I-I know." Xenophon replied simply. Soon after he took his share of the tasty snack and we ate in silence for a while, during that while, I took about two more dips of honey and little by little my tears began to dry up. Before long Xenophon spoke up again, asking about what DNA is. I looked over at him and realized how dark it had gotten, talk about losing track of time. 

Hawk was the first one to reply, "Well, DNA is inside of us. It's like a map of our body...or something that tells our body how to build us. I think you’re some mix of human and mantis so you’ll have Human and Praying Mantis DNA.” Then he looked at me.
"Oh, um.. well if I remember correctly from what I was taught at school, its a sort of molecule that contains the instructions an organism needs to develop, live and reproduce. DNA is what links you to others who have the same genetic code as you, like who your related too by appearances. If someone looks like you than he or she have the same DNA as you." I added to Hawk's reply,  hopeing I didn't confuse the mantis.
 
~~Elizabeth Trail~~
Serephina shook her head, in contentment. “Thank you so much, Elizabeth. I’m sorry about today though...that I brought Harry here. I didn't know…” She slightly broke off and began to sniff, croaking out an apology. “I'm sorry.”
 
Pity filled within towards the young girl. "Oh, sweetie.." Reaching out to her, I placed my right hand on the side of her cheek and looked into her eyes with eyes softened "Don't apologize, honey. It isn't your fault, you simply didn't know.. I don't want you to blame yourself for what happened today, ok? There's nothing to be sorry about." I said to her, lovingly.
 
((Ah, I feel happy when I play as Elizabeth, she's like a loving mother for everyone there <3))

James Carter the Lobster-Goblin-Shark and that Ghost Mantis guy

((-slips shades on- Let's do this.))

§ James §

"I'm perfectly fine." Soraka huffed, looking down at the documents on the table. "There were apparently a huge group of hybrids that escaped a Dome." " 'A Dome'?" James thought, frowning. "They built more?" He asked himself mentally. Moving away from the hybrid, he glanced around the room, looking more for a way out now. Soraka seemed quite irritable now and he wasn't sure if he wanted to remain trapped in a small enclosed space with her for too long. He thought over her words, though. " 'A Dome.' I thought ours was the only Dome?" He thought, though supposed not. After all, he wasn't sure what this place was here so it could very well be another Dome. It felt strange, though, as the Dome had been the only thing he'd ever known. The idea that there was another one just like it seemed off to him. James glanced down, closing his eyes for a second. The past few days had been rough, and he was still very confused. He wanted justification for why he was left in the tunnels to rot, but at the same time he was just glad to be around other people again. He opened his eyes, feeling conflicted, when something flickered in his vision. He turned sharply, looking at the corner of the room. He couldn't see anything, not well at least. He squinted, then checked for electrical signals. "I'm definitely getting a blip.." He thought, walking over to the corner. He stared up, and as he drew closer he saw it. A small, sleek metal device with a thin round lens staring right back at him. It was a newer model, yes, but he certainly knew a security camera when he saw one.

Uh oh.

"Soraka... Soraka we need to leave right now." The Shark hybrid called back, staring up at the camera. To their great misfortune, someone was indeed watching that video feed, and they were not the friendly type. The man smiled quietly at the brute's sudden and all-too-late realization, his pointer finger delicately tracing around a large button. "Took you long enough, crab-cakes.." He mused to himself. He'd searched the two hybrids up by now, one file very new, the other very old. It seems 'James Carter' here was a very old hybrid from the dome system.. Very old indeed. His file was barren and quite bland, but he'd seemed like an obedient hybrid up until this point. The man had sighed, disappointed by old programming. However, the phoenix was another story. She was defiant indeed, but such defiance had its limits. He grinned slightly, watching the two on his computer monitor. "Let's observe these two specimens closely, shall we? This is almost perfect test conditions right here." He mused to himself, grinning. He pressed a button, activating the mind control device for that hybrid's collar, inputting code and parameters and then sending the instructions to it remotely. He then sat back, ready to watch the show as the Phoenix hybrid received its instructions and had to obey. "This should be fun."

♪ Xenophon ♪

Xenophon watched with interest as Hawk explained it. "Well, DNA is inside of us. It's like a map of our body... Or something that tells our body how to build us. I think you're some mix of human and mantis so you'll have Human and Praying Mantis DNA." The hybrid said, looking over at Ty. "Inside us? I never thought of what was inside me.." Xenophon reflected. He also was curious about the term 'Human', especially since Hawk thought he was one. Or part of one, anyways. "Oh um...-" Ty's voice grabbed his attention. "-Well if what I remember correctly from what I was taught at school, it's a sort of molecule that comtains instructions an organism needs to develop, live and reproduce. DNA is what links you to others who have the same genetic code as you, like who you're related to by appearances. If someone looks like you then he or she have the same DNA as you." She explained, glancing at Hawk. Xenophon was a bit confused since she'd used alot of words he didn't recognize. Pondering it over for a while, he tried meshing the two's explanations together to help him understand. "S-s-s..o, o-oth..ers l-look l-l..ike me, t-th-ey h-have sss..ame map a-as me?" He reasoned aloud, thinking it over. "So my brothers have my same map, but hybrids have different maps, so they were led to be built differently than how I was.." He thought. It intrigued him to think about things like that, as it made sense the way he saw it. Now he understood the other Mantis' words, she meant even though she was a Mantis she wouldn't act like one. It seemed weird to him, though it made sense considering she seemed to say she wasn't going to hurt him. His mind brought him back to the human thing, though. "W-wwh..at i-is Hu..man? H-how a-am I eet?" He asked, subtly breaking off another piece of honeycomb and taking a bite out of it.

Sea Fern|Rita Ritz|Scytha

~Sea Fern the Cuttlefish-Seagull-Octopus hybrid~

 

"Yes,we haven't,it has been nearly ten years since the day our house had been raided and we were split apart. My name is Salastar and unfortunately it is still not quite safe for me to stay with you too Lon... error 271,error 302..." Faolans dad said. "Sorry about that... like I said it is still not safe for me to hang around you all for the scientist's programming in me is still active and dangerous" he hugged Faolan. "I must warn you that it won't be this easy to down any other controlled soldiers,I was the prototype,the first successful soldier,but flawed and outdated. To stop them will take more than bringing out the inside that has been fighting for a long time... you must destroy what commands them,the scientists also created injections that stimulate the portion of the brain that deals with memory,that will also aid in toppling other mindless soldiers." Salastar walked towards the forest. "When I feel I am stable enough to provide information I will find you but it is too risky for me to travel with the group while still fighting the control they have over me,you were my original target to kill," he said. Sea Fern didn't really understand everything he was saying,it was a bunch of scientific stuff that was way over her head,but she understood enough... the scientists from the Dome were absolutely terrible. "Till I see you all again,goodbye," Salastar said,vanishing into the brush. Sea Fern looked at the spot Salastar had been standing. "Well that was sudden," she said,referring to his sudden appearance and then disappearance. Sea Fern turned to look at Faolan and said, "Your very lucky Faolan. Your parents cared for you or I'm guessing they did. They didn't leave you on some stretch of beach to be forgotten." Sea Fern then turned around and swam away,into the sea,engulfed by the waves.

 

~Rita Ritz~

Rita listened, surprised,as Faolans father,Salastar,explained his condition. 'Mind control! Like Triton told us about!' Rita thought. Salastar began te leave,stating that he didn't want to be with them,in case his mind control came back upon him. He said that his original target had been his own son. Making Salastar hunt and hurt his own son? Could the scientists get any more horrid than that? Something told Rita that they could. Saying goodbye,Salastar disappeared into the woods. "And... he's gone," Rita commented. Rita looked at Faolan,who,surprisingly,was smiling,though he was crying as well. I was very weird to see Faolan not being so... leaderly. "I'm sorry your father had to leave so soon after you got to really see him again... but hopefully he will return soon... with his programming by the scientists completely gone," Rita said,smiling. She then listened to what Sea Fern was saying,disconcerted by Sea Fern's oddly specific words. 'Is that what her parents did to her? Abandon her on some random beach?' Rita wondered. She would of asked Sea Fern herself,but she was already swimming away into the water. 

 

~Scytha~

Aki arrived with Faolan in tow. The phoenix hybrid mouthed 'thank you' to her,Scytha only nodded in response. 

Faolan knelt by the white dragon hybrid.

"Hello? Father?" so Scytha had been correct,they were related. 

"Either your marine friend has immaculate aim or was really lucky with that shot," the hybrid that was Faolan's father said,sitting up. 

"It has been so long..." he hugged Faolan.

"I missed you so much... ever since they took us from you I held hope that one of us,you mother or I,would survive to see you again... I never missed you more than having to watch from afar as a robot controlled my body."

"Mother?" Faolan asked hopefully. His father said nothing in response.

"I thought I would never see you or her again... that day and the days that followed... they were too painful to remember... I forgot until I ended up in the Dome," Faolan said. He looked at the others around him. 

"He's my father."

 

Scytha listened to the conversation that followed. Faolans father,named Salastar,said that he had been separate from Faolan for ten years. He then started spitting out random numbers. Snapping out of it he said that he had been mind controlled to work for the scientists. He began to leave,saying it wasn't safe for him to travel with them with his mind control still active. He left. 

'Only ten years?' Scytha thought 'I have been separate from my family for maybe twice as long.' Scytha tried to remember back to her days with her family,but she... couldn't... quite... remember. She couldn't think that far back. But a memory,perhaps stirred up by Salastar saying he was the first successful mind controlled hybrid,rose to the surface of her mind. 

 

'"It worked! The experiment was a success!"'

'"We've created a synthetically hybridized human!"'

'"She's the first successful experiment."'

 

She could remember hearing voices,as she writhed in pain from her transformation. It had hurt becoming a hybrid. It was probably painless now,but before,when the Scientists were just learning how to turn someone into a hybrid, it had hurt quite a bit. It had hurt,even though she had been unconscious,she had still somewhat been able to feel her body reshaping itself into something it was never meant to be. 

 

~Sea Fern again~

She dived deeper into the water and suddenly saw a humanoid shape up ahead. Swimming to the shape she saw that it was the marine hybrid who had shot Salastar. He look about ready to pass out. Sea Fern popped her head above the water. "Hey,Aki. What should we do about your marine friend down here? He looks like he's going to pass out," she called.

✧ Soraka ✧

Soraka

((Writing this early in the morning, and my temptation to just be lazy and just freeze the whole room is great .-.))

Soraka continued reading about the escapees and felt James’s presence leave. So the Dome hybrids created a breach in the security all by themselves. Using metal from an underground tunnel, they placed it in the barrier, creating a hole and escaping through there.

They’re smart, she cracked a smile as she read this. I hope escape goes well for them.

She pulled out another sheet which happened to contain a list of the hybrids from that Dome and was about to peruse it when James called out, “Soraka... Soraka we need to leave right now.”

“What, there’s so much here! I just want to…” The silver haired began to argue back.

Suddenly, she felt like losing consciousness. The phoenix hybrid struggled to retain control of her body. It felt as if someone else was trying to push her out of her body or suppress her and then take over...like a parasite.

She continued to resist, her breathing growing harder and heavier. Soraka gritted her teeth, “You’re...not...”

Then she felt a zap at her neck, causing her to blank out as new information entered her brain.

[code:/551104/:/Instr:*Restrain Intruding hybrid, wait for further instructions.]

During that length of time, the mind control seized control and Soraka was forced into a void state.

✧ ✧ ✧

Soraka scanned the room for her target- the intruding hybrid. Her sparkless eyes landed on a lobster-shark hybrid in the corner of the room.

She lifted off the ground and flew at her target with a high burst of speed, tackling and slamming him into the wall behind him. (No instructions on minding property XD) She pinned him by the neck with both hands. The two hybrids were nose to nose now, the phoenix staring daggers into the lobster-shark’s. Her hands chilled, forming ice around James’s neck to the wall.

James Carter that awkward guy

((-pats reassuringly- You conquered that temptation well though :D))

§ James §

"What, there's so much here! I just want to..." James furrowed his brow as Soraka did not finish her sentence. Taking his eyes off the camera, he glanced over at the hybrid. She was slouched slightly, looking as if she were struggling to stay upright as her breathing grew heavier. James grew concerned, not sure what she was doing. "Soraka?" He called, taking a step forward. He felt a blip suddenly jolt from her direction, flinching slightly at it. At the same time the hybrid stiffened, standing up straight and slowly looking around the room. Her eyes suddenly stopped on him. Before he could react, the hybrid had flung herself through the air, slamming him into the wall behind him as they collided. James sputtered slightly as the hybrid had so suddenly attacked, her hands locked firmly around his throat. He felt his neck growing colder and colder as the icy female's eyes stared pure spite into his confused and dazed ones. "So...ra..ka.." James croaked, locking his claws on her arms and trying to push her back. "I.. don't.. wantto.. hurtyou.." He growled. "Why is she doing this?! We're both allies.. Did I say something wrong?!" James' mind whirled with questions at her sudden betrayal, but right now they'd have to go unanswered. While the cold was something he could bear for a while, the choking was something he couldn't. The hybrid was so thin in his eyes, he didn't expect this kind of strength from someone he could probably pick up with ease-

He didn't hesitate after that crossed his mind. Moving quickly, James hooked his claws under both her arms and hauled the girl over his head. Considering her unexplainable hostility, he figured he had to do whatever he could to prevent her from harming him. Hastily James tossed her away from himself, trying to keep his distance from the hybrid more than anything.

((Best idea- throw opponent therefore cannot choke. Best tactics James, best tactics.))

Soraka

((I’ve been meaning to do first person for real Raka and third for mind controlled. For some reason I switched to third earlier, and stuck with it for reasons unknown, but now that there’s actual mind control in play, I’ll switch about))

What am I doing? I thought. What’s controlling me? Someone stop this madness!

I watched myself attack James, helpless at stopping my body. It was frozen in the pure darkness of my consciousness.

“So...ra..ka..” James croaked as he tried to keep my out of control body away. “I.. don't.. wantto.. hurtyou..”

I shut my eyes.

SOMEONE STOP THIS!!!!

Before Soraka could solidify the ice around James’s neck and freeze him to the wall, the lobster hybrid swiftly looped his claws beneath her arms and lifted her up, causing her to lose grip of his neck and the ice that she began to place around his neck to shatter and break. He then threw her across.

The ice phoenix crashed into a few computers, knocking one over and bumping and slightly shifting the others while sending papers flying in all directions. She tumbled tumbled to the ground in the end but got up like nothing happened. The silver haired then faced James and slashed with her arm, directing jagged spikes of ice to form and head towards James in a zigzagging pattern.

Soraka then placed her hands on the ground, freezing the ground and walls with ice. She then leaped up onto a large spike and looked about for her target. Her objective was to freeze his feet to the ground and then restrain his claws.

Aki

Rita and Faolan conversed as I spaced out, looking out into the distance. How many miles away could my sister be? Where even is she now?

“Well that was sudden,” Sea Fern said, bringing back my attention to everyone. “You're very lucky Faolan. Your parents cared for you or I'm guessing they did. They didn't leave you on some stretch of beach to be forgotten.”

She then turned around and went into the sea, disappearing beneath the dark water. I wondered about the aquatic hybrid’s past. Was she stranded on by her parents?

It reminded me of my own past. I never had any memories of my parents. Only my sister vaguely remembered them. I could only imagine them from how she described them to be. But in the end, they left us to be cared for by humans in a remote village. Occasionally, relatives from our mother’s passed by and noticed us, deciding to stop and criticize our parents for meeting and causing grief.

It was something that always bothered me, something that always came up when I spaced out. I didn’t like it.

There was some motion in the water. Glancing there, I saw Sea Fern floating a little ways out, “Hey, Aki. What should we do about your marine friend down here? He looks like he's going to pass out.”

Oh I nearly forgot about him! I realized he was still in the water after what the other water-dwelling hybrid called.

“I’ll go get-” I started as I stepped into the water, but suddenly felt chills run up my whole body.

I stepped back and called back. “-Bring him to shore, please.”

 

Hawk
“Oh, um.. well if I remember correctly from what I was taught at school, its a sort of molecule that contains the instructions an organism needs to develop, live and reproduce. DNA is what links you to others who have the same genetic code as you, like who you're related too by appearances. If someone looks like you than he or she have the same DNA as you.” Tigerlily added to my answer.

She’s quite smart. I wish I had a chance to go to school and learn these sorts of things, I thought.

I closed my eyes, the calm of this night feeling overwhelmingly reminiscent. It reminded me of back then..as a child.

Everyone wants to connect with someone else.

I saw three kids playing together inside a laboratory setting for a second, their laughter echoing. I recognized one of them to be me.

When was that? I wondered.

“S-s-s..o, o-oth..ers l-look l-l..ike me, t-th-ey h-have sss..ame map a-as me?” Xenophon asked.

I opened my eyes and looked over at the quizzical hybrid and nodded. “Well, we all have our own unique details within our DNA, so we may be slightly different even if we share the same DNA, for example, in personality.”

“W-wwh..at i-is Hu..man? H-how a-am I eet?” He then asked.

“Well, you are able to speak human language, so that’s why I guessed you were partially human,” I answered. “A complete human looks like Mr. Ritz or Dr. Elizabeth.” (Did Tigerlily or Elizabeth ever give out their last name?)
 

Ryu

Suddenly, Faolan yelled for everyone to stay put. I opened my eyes, confused about why he would say so. I looked in the direction of the black dragon and saw him jogging off after Aki who seemed to be soaked. Rita seemed hesitant to stay and ultimately ran after them.

“All about, what was that?” I wondered aloud, watching patiently from my spot for the three to return.

 

Serephina

“Oh, sweetie..” I felt Elizabeth place a hand on the side of my cheek and lifted my head so we could see each other. “Don't apologize, honey. It isn't your fault, you simply didn't know.. I don't want you to blame yourself for what happened today, ok? There's nothing to be sorry about.” she said warmly.

It’s not my fault. I just didn’t know. It’s not my fault, I told myself. I don’t need to be sorry. I just didn’t know. Everything will be fine. I sniffled, feeling tears forming at the brim of my eyes. I blinked them away and smiled back and whispered. “Ok. Thank you.”

((And I feel like the troublemaker XD))

I heard the comments of the suddennes of my father's appearance and then dissapearance but I focused on the rather sad and bitter remark Sea Fern made about her parents before she had taken off towards the water. Her comment would add to the many things I would think about when I was not doing anything.

"I hope so too" I said in agreement to Rita's statement. the nest thing I heard was Sea Fern calling that she had found Triton passed out in the water to which Aki seemed like she was going to get him but stopped and gave a large shiver, it can't be good for pheonixs to get wet like that at not be able to dry I thought to myself as a strided quickly over to Aki and wrapped a, hopefully, warming wing arounf her, "cold?" I asked in a warm voice, the remainder of my tears drying on my face.

I felt warm scales and wing wrap around my body, driving away the chills the water gave. Looking up, I saw Faolan standing by me and blushed.
“cold?” He asked in a warm voice.
“Not anymore,” I replied softly. “Now that you're here.”
Being that I was no longer freezing from being wet, I attempted to radiate back warmth to Faolan and in the meanwhile, also dry my body.

Sea Fern

Aki started towards the water. "I'll go get-" She reached the water,but stopped with a shiver. "Bring him to shore please," she requested. Aki seemed to very muchly be a creature of fire,so no wonder she didn't want to go back into the water. Well too bad for her,the world beneath the waves was an amazing place. Sea Fern ducked down under the water again. Swimming over to Aki's friend (who she still didn't know the name of) Sea Fern hooked her arms under his arms and started pulling him to shore. "Aki asked me to take you to shore so don't freak out and try to shoot me or anything," Sea Fern told him. When she got to the shallows she stood up and wrapped her three tentacle tails around the half unconscious hybrid. Lifting him out of the water she carried him onto the beach and (gently) dumped him on the sand. 

 

((Cool thing about Sea Fern: Her tail(s) are way stronger than the rest of her. She can lift someone the same size as her off the ground. I'm not really sure how much her tail(s) can lift,but she wouldn't be able to lift,say Rita or Faolan,but could lift Aki (I think) and Baske. Not that these examples really help since we don't know the exact size of any of them. But yeah really strong tail and the reason she didn't just carry Triton with her tail(s) in the first place is because she uses her tail tentacles to swim,swishing them back and forth like a fish tail.))

§ James §

Soraka went flying across the room, landing hard across a desk of computers. Papers scattered about as the hybrid tumbled over the desk, knocking a few computers over as well. Soraka, however, got right back up as if nothing had happened at all. She faced him, the suddenly slashed her arms through the air. James only had minimal time to react as long sharp spikes of ice came flying at him. He held his arms up to hopefully shield the blows, a few spikes hitting his armored claws and shattering on impact. Two spikes, though, had found their way into James' chest. He groaned in pain as Soraka leaned down, the floor soon growing cold and hard. While she was distracted James dived under a desk, wincing and picking the spikes out of his chest. "She can't be doing this willingly, can she? There's just no reason.." James thought, recalling a split moment while she was choking him that her eyes had closed, almost remorsefully. The air grew cold, and he figured she'd frozen the whole room by now. James panted, sensing the air for her. Her signals came back near the ceiling of the room, probably perched on something. James frowned slightly. "What if this was all a test? What if she was supposed to follow me... But how is it my fault if these scientists leave their secret bases so easily to enter, darn it.." James closed his eyes, feeling like he should've never trusted the hybrid. Now she was trying to kill him. Glancing out from his hiding place, he got an idea.

Bracing himself, James stood up from under the desk, hauling it over himself. He still couldn't see the hybrid, so instead threw it based on electrical signals. James panted as the wounds from the ice spikes bled lightly, feeling confused and hurt.

♪ Xenophon ♪

"Well, you are able to speak human language, so that's why I guessed you were partially human." Hawk said. Xenophon nodded slightly, though wasn't sure if that was sufficient enough information. He simply shrugged, figuring it was just something he could do. After all, the language had been taught to him by his father, who was also a mantis. He wondered now, though, since Hawk's earlier comment said that DNA wasn't always the same in others. His father had always looked slightly different. "Maybe it's because he had different DNA?" Xenophon thought. "A complete human looks like Mr. Ritz or Dr. Elizabeth." Hawk's voice caught his attention, although he didn't know who the hybrid was talking about. He searched through his memory for such names, though didn't remember anything. He sat there for a while, thinking over who the hybrid may be referring to. It then hit him- two names, two Hunter-Folks in the hybrid camp. Seemed distinct enough, and was the best thing he'd thought of so far. "O-o-o-o, y-y-ou m..m..mean t-the H-h..hunt..er Folks? H-unter f-f-folks in camp?" Xenophon asked, leaning towards them slightly.

After pondering on our explanations for a while, Xenophon spoke "S-s-s..o, o-oth..ers l-look l-l..ike me, t-th-ey h-have sss..ame map a-as me?" He asked. "Well, we all have our own unique details within our DNA, so we may be slightly different even if we share the same DNA, for example, in personality.” Hawk replied, nodding. I nodded in agreement with his reply, yeah thats true. Everyone has their unique qualities that distinguish them from others  that have the same DNA. “W-wwh..at i-is Hu..man? H-how a-am I eet?” Xenophon then asked.
 
“Well, you are able to speak human language, so that’s why I guessed you were partially human,” Hawk willingly answered. “A complete human looks like Mr. Ritz or Dr. Elizabeth.”  "O-o-o-o, y-y-ou m..m..mean t-the H-h..hunt..er Folks? H-unter f-f-folks in camp?" Xenophon asked, leaning towards us slightly.
 
Hunter-Folks? My mother and Rita? I thought before speaking up. "Well, yeah those two are humans but their not hunters. Their allies who are on our side against the hunters." I stated, correcting Xenophon. I didn't want him to think that their apart of those group of hunters.

~~Elizabeth Trail~~

 

The young girl sniffled yet again and I noticed tears forming at the brim of her eyes. As a mother's first instinct, I wanted to wrap my arms around her and embrace her, comfortingly. Though, I held back as she blinked her tears away and smiled, whispering "Ok. Thank you."
Removing my hand from her cheek, I bowed my head "Your welcome dear," I replied, feeling pleased at my accomplishment of comforting her. "Now, you must be hungry after your journey. Do you want me to get you any fish or berries from what the others have foraged?"

Aki looked up at me and seemed to blush, replying that she was not cold anymore thanks to my presence. I felt her begin to warm up and I could tell that she was radiating her own heat. In truth I di not know how hot she actually got for my scales were rather resistant to heat, I figured that it would be uncomfortable for others.

Sea Fern came up on the beach with Triton and simply dumped the seemingly unconcious Triton on the sand of the beach, "thank you Sea Fern" I said as Iooked over all of the hybrids who were around and had witnessed what had just happened.

"Come on all, lets head back to camp" I said as I shifted back into the leader I was. "Rita, do you think you could carry Triton over and find him a good place to rest?" I asked the smilodon hybrid

Aki

Sea Fern dove down under the water again and resurfaced a moment later, carrying Triton to shore and gently putting him down.
He indeed looked as if he was passed out. Just how hard had Salastar’s mind controlled form hit him? Perhaps it was on a pressure point or something? I wondered.
“Thank you,” I repeated Faolan’s phrase, showing my own appreciation to Sea Fern.
“Come on all, let's head back to camp,” the black scaled said. “Rita, do you think you could carry Triton over and find him a good place to rest?”
“Please do,” I added to Faolan’s request to take Triton to camp and put him down.
I looked down at Triton. Would he prefer to be on land or in the water? I thought about it, realizing how much we’ve grown apart.
((Sea Fern should be able to pick up Aki. She’s human sized and is actually even lighter than a typical human due to hollow bones. I'm also considering having her blood a mix of blood and fire which may lighten her weight even more))
 
Soraka
Soraka noticed movement from the other side of the room, a little ways from where she last saw James. Next a desk came flying at her. The cryophoenix jumped, dodging the desk, and saw her target now in the open. She summoned ice shards in mid air and fired them at him like a machine gun with the flick of her wrist.
The room grew even chillier as ice covered the ceiling now, forming icy stalactites. Soraka noticed her target was bleeding and took it as a good sign, but decided the little task she was assigned was taking too long.
The silver haired locked her eyes on the bulkier hybrid’s location and caused ice to shoot up from the ground around him, forming a cage. She made sure to solidify the bars of ice so they were as sturdy as iron ones. She landed and walked up to him, forming a rapier of ice in her hand and thrust it between the bars at James’s neck. She stopped right before the ice could impale him.
“Do not move,” she instructed, sounding indifferent.
((Ah, sorry I got controlly))
 
Hawk
“O-o-o-o, y-y-ou m..m..mean t-the H-h..hunt..er Folks? H-unter f-f-folks in camp?" Xenophon asked, leaning forwards slightly.
 Hunter folks? I pondered about what the hybrid meant by it.
“Well, yeah those two are humans but their not hunters. Their allies who are on our side against the hunters.” Tigerlily stated, correcting Xenophon.
I nodded in agreement. “They're friendly. If you have any questions about humans and other science stuff, you can always approach them.”
 
Serephina 
The doctor released me from a soothing embrace and bowed her head, “Your welcome dear. Now, you must be hungry after your journey. Do you want me to get you any fish or berries from what the others have foraged?”
Now that you mentioned it, I think I haven't eaten since yesterday morning. I thought.
I nodded meekly in response, not ready to get out of my spot just yet.
 
Triton
I felt someone pick me up and I fought to stay awake and get out of his or her clutches.
“Aki asked me to take you to shore so don't freak out and try to shoot me or anything,” the being carrying me informed me before I could start struggling majorly.
That girl, I thought with a sigh. She should care for herself first.
When we reached shore, my carrier put me down. I listened to the voices of several speak.
So someone called Sea Fern carried me to shore. I suppose it's safe to assume Sea Fern’s also the one I saw underwater earlier while the fight was ongoing..The voice sounds about right. I figured.
When Faolan asked Rita to carry me back, I grunted as I worked to prop myself up, opening my eyes a slight bit, “No... I can... go ...myself.”

Rita Ritz

Sea Fern appeared at the surface of the water,asking Aki what to do about her friend,who seemed about to pass out. Aki rushed to the waters edge but stopped,shivering. Phoenix's and water do not mix well apparently and Aki was already soaked. Aki asked Sea Fern to bring who ever it was to shore. Rita was confused as to who Sea Fern and Aki were talking about until Sea Fern surfaced in the shallow water and hefted a hybrid with the three tentacles that made up her tail. They had been talking about Triton,who indeed looked ready to pass out. 

"Come on all,lets head back to camp. Rita,do you think you could carry Triton over and find him a good place to rest?" Faolan said after thanking Sea Fern. Aki agreed with him,saying "Please do." Before Rita could move to pick up Triton he got up on his own,saying he could get to camp himself. "Ok,but I'll be here to carry you when you inevitably collapse," Rita said.

Before Rita could pick up Triton, he lifted himself partially up, saying he could walk to camp on his own. “Ok, but I'll be here to carry you when you inevitably collapse,” Rita said. And I was sure the second part was to come.

I watched, unsurprised and somewhat amused as he managed to sit up and even stand, only to fall forward and face plant in the sand. My lips curled up slightly into a small smile as I held in a snort.

“Rita, don’t listen to him. Just pick him up and go,” I said.

With a meekly nod from Serephina, I stood up and took a brief moment to dust myself from the debris that I'd gotten from the forest ground before departing from her amidst. Pacing myself, I approached one hybrid after other, asking if there's any food left from what they've foraged. Some of the hybrids I asked had no food to give though others had some lefted over. Two different hybrids give me two different sized fish, two fishes should be enough meat for Serephina. Now to finish it off, I'm going to need berries. I thanked the hybrids for their fishes and continued on. Soon I approached another hybrid, a female and I asked her if she had any berries that she can give me, her reply was favorable. She reached into her left pocket and took out a hand fill of berries and give them to me, I thanked her for the berries and departed, heading back to Serephina. 
 
I felt content with what I was able to get for the girl.. Serephina has a good little dinner coming her way. Soon I arrived back with two fishes in one hand and berries in the other, I carefully sat down next to her and held them out to her "Here you are, two fishes and a hand full of berries." I said in a cheerful tone of voice.

Triton seemed to wake slightly after Aki agreed with me. I watched, slightly amused, as Triton refused the help and then managed to get up only to topple foreward. I nodded in agreement with Aki said to ignore Triton's words and wached as Rita began walking towards camp with a thuroughly exhasted Triton in her arms.

With Triton taken care of I began to walk with a wet Aki, back to camp, her neatly wrapped warmly in my wing. When we reached camp I spoke to Aki, "how are you feeling?" I asked, both refering to her injuries and the fact that she was still damp.

Rita crouched down and picked up Triton, carrying my childhood friend in her arms as she walked ahead. I walked with Faolan, who still held me warm and sheltered from the chilly night air, wrapped in his large wing.
It felt pleasant and safe there, under his protective wing. Like I didn't have to worry about anything. If only I could stay there forever...
“how are you feeling?” Faolan’s voice snapped me out of my thoughts.
“Hmm? Oh, I’m fine. A little bit of water can't harm me too much. I think I’ll get all better overnight,” I replied, belittling the consequences of getting drenched multiple times in a row.
In truth, I could wake up sick from lack of flame within my body, unable to produce fire. I remembered getting soaked before. Usually in situations like these, I would dry off with a towel and sit or sleep by the fireplace at home to warm up and replenish my inner flame. But under these circumstances, I had to improvise.
“Hey Faolan, mind breathing fire at me?” I asked, not realizing how strange the request may have sounded.
 
Serephina 
Elizabeth got up and went off to get what I requested, leaving me alone to enjoy some time alone. I hugged my knees again and gazed at the ground, comforting myself with silence. I perked an ear when I heard footsteps approaching and checked the scent of the approaching being, noticing it was Elizabeth, back with two fish and a handful of berries.
The medic sat down next to me and held out what she had collected. “Here you are, two fishes and a hand full of berries,” she announced cheerfully.
“Thank you so much,” I gratefully took the food and placed them on my lap, which my cloak covered and worked as a makeshift table.
I wolfed down the two fish, delighted that I finally had something to fill my stomach. Now that I actually had some food in me, I slowed and took my time plopping berries into my mouth one by one.
 
Triton
“Rita,don't listen to him. Just pick him up and go,” I heard Aki say.
Darn, why's she making a fool of me? I thought, feeling embarrassed and glum. You could've just put me out of my misery and left me in the ocean.
The hybrid, Rita, bent down and picked me up in her arms, saying, “Told you.”
Aki, why did you do this…
We arrived back at the campsite for the night. “Put me down now,” I said with a huff.

((Sorry for taking so long -.-))

§ James §

For a second James had thought he'd hit her as the desk slammed hard into the wall where the hybrid had been, ice shattering from the impact. But no, she couldn't have been hit, because here she was rapid-firing ice shards at him. James barely had time to react, crouching and covering his head with his claws as he turned his armored back at the flurry to take most of the blows. Tiny shards of ice had found there ways into various parts in him and he breathed in sharply in pain. When the bombardment stopped, James got up and looked around for Soraka, only for ice to suddenly spring up from all around him. In a split second it'd solidified, forming an icy cage all around him. He only watched as Soraka approached him, forming a long pointed staff of ice and sliding it through the bars. "Do not move." The girl said, the weapon pressed against his neck. James kept his eyes firmly ahead, clenching his claws. "Why.. Why did you do this? We are comrades, no? Do we not work under the same roof?" James asked, trying to keep as restrained in movement as possible.

♪ Xenophon ♪

The both of them seemed confused for a second. "Well, yeah those two are humans but they're not hunters. They're allies who are on our side against the hunters." Ty said. "They're friendly. If you have any questions about humans and other science stuff, you can always approach them." Hawk added. Xenophon nodded to both of them, quite glad to have a proper name now for the Hunters-that-did-not-hunt. He'd seen not-as-hostile 'humans' in the woods before, but never knew what to call them. "Aaah, k-k-kn..ew s-s-s-some h...hum-mans did n'not.. h-h..hunt, o-o-only k-knew t-to c'call a-as Hun'ters." Xenophon looked down slightly at the thought of the true Hunters. "T-true Hunters... T-the T-t-terr..ib..le o-o-ones.. H-h-hurt.. K-kill. B-b-bur..n us in t-the n-nig..ht..." He'd never known where they came from or why, only that they were sent to destroy them. He rubbed his head with his scythe in discomfort, recalling a night raid once when he was younger that involved a mix of both bright, hot lights, kidnapping, and water. A shiver ran through him from such times. He quietly looked down and took a larger clump of honeycomb for himself, chewing on it silently as he tried to block the smell of smoke he was remembering.

Soraka

((Ah, np at all. Were the gifs slowing down your device?))

“Why.. Why did you do this? We are comrades, no? Do we not work under the same roof?” James asked.

The mind control took no recognition of need to talk, although I was beating at the so confined and unbreakable walls of my consciousness, trying to reach out to the lobster hybrid. Soraka began to form ice around the captured hybrid’s feet to freeze the hybrid into place. She looked at him, unmoved by his words, as she retracted the icy sword and walked behind James, reaching in to grab his claws from the back to cuff him.

As she did, a single tear slid down her face and whispered an apology barely audible. “Sorry.”

Ever since the mind control kicked in, my emotions peaked and continuously pounded against the mind control’s reign. Because of the constant high emotional state, I had managed to say that phrase out loud, but was kicked back into the icy confinement of my own mind by a zap. I swear I could’ve remembered this moment…

Soraka finished restraining her target with the cuffs and then walked back around to James’s front, not a trace of emotion showing anymore. She resummoned her rapier and positioned it against his neck again. With the hybrid detained, she began to wait for new instructions.
 

Hawk
Xenophon nodded to both of us. “Aaah, k-k-kn..ew s-s-s-some h...hum-mans did n'not.. h-h..hunt, o-o-only k-knew t-to c'call a-as Hun'ters.” He said as he looked down slightly. “T-true Hunters... T-the T-t-terr..ib..le o-o-ones.. H-h-hurt.. K-kill. B-b-bur..n us in t-the n-nig..ht…”

I frowned at the mantis hybrid’s words. Rage churned in my chest. They even set them on fire?! Hurt...kill...this world, how much more messed up is it out there?

At that moment, I realized how little I knew about humans’ ulterior motives.

That’s right, humans are afraid of change. When they found out we exist…

I took some more honey as I remembered someone telling me, ...they couldn’t help but fear us so they tried to conquer that fear by capturing hybrids and imprisoning them here and then they experimented to create those like you and I. I guess it couldn’t have been helped. Let’s just keep waiting for them to accept us. I’m sure that day will come.

That was total bs. If that was true, then why was I here?

“We’ll stop them soon,” I said, clenching my non honey-covered hand into a fist. “And those hunters will be on their knees and sorry they even dared a thought about hunting us.”

Scytha|Sea Fern|Baske|Rita Ritz

~Scytha~

Scytha was snapped out of her thoughts by Sea Fern asking what to do about Aki's marine friend,who Scytha assumed was Triton. Aki ran to the waters edge,starting to say she would go get them,but stopped,shivering and asked Sea Fern to take whoever it was to shore instead. Sea Fern walked out of the water a few seconds later carrying Triton with her tail. She set him down on the sand and Faolan and Aki asked Rita to carry him back to camp. Triton managed to get up on his own,saying he would get there himself,but then promptly fell on his face. Rita picked him up and walked back to camp with him. 

Faolan walked with Aki,his wing wrapped around her to keep her warm. The phoenix-wolf hybrid was quite drenched and fire and water do not mix well. Aki,strangely enough,asked Faolan to breath fire on her. Was she really that cold? Faolan would probably end up burning her clothes by accident,Scytha had seen how inexperienced he was with breathing fire. Scytha followed behind the other at a slower pace,stopping once along the way to catch a ground squirrel. Back at camp she stayed in the trees to eat her catch. 

 

~Sea Fern~

Both Faolan and Aki thanked her. They asked Rita to carry Triton. Triton actually managed to stand up by himself,but fell over a few seconds later,causing Sea Fern to snort with laughter. Instead of swimming back Sea Fern decided to walk along with everyone else. Striding over to Faolan and Aki,who were being awfully cuddly,she asked "Aki,you alright? I saw you getting dragged around by Salastar or uh,robot Salastar? I'm still kinda confused about all that mind control stuff..." Sea Fern trailed off. 

 

~Baske~

Baske barely registered Ryu's words,she was still lost in thought,staring up at the stars. She walked to the edge of of the water,where there was a large bolder,climbing it she sat cross legged on top of it. She continued to watch the stars,the sun had almost completely set by now. She did this most nights,watch the stars before falling asleep. 

 

~Rita Ritz~

Arriving at camp Triton asked to be put down. Rita set him down under a tree next to the river. Spotting something in Tritons hand she reached down to look at it,lifting it up to look at it closer (using her night vision to see better in the fading light) she saw that it was a pistol,looking inside of it she saw that it seemed to be loaded with bullets made of rubber. Looking down at Triton she asked "What's this?"

Aki

I looked to my side, past Faolan’s wing as I heard Sea Fern say my name.
“Aki, you alright? I saw you getting dragged around by Salastar or uh, robot Salastar? I'm still kinda confused about all that mind control stuff…” the other girl asked, trailing off in the end.
“Oh, I’m ok,” I said, giving her a small but warm smile. “I have decent healing so my injuries should be gone by tomorrow morning. As of the mind control…we’ll stop the scientists soon and finally enjoy not getting chased around. We just need to find the source of all of this and destroy whatever has the control.”
As soon as I finished speaking, I sneezed softly at the ground. Eh...this isn't really looking good now.
I got out from Faolan’s cover and stood two arm lengths away from him. “Give me fire, now.”
 
Ryu
Baske suddenly got up and walked to a boulder by the water and climbed up, sitting on the top and continued to stargaze. I then sensed several more beings approach from down the beach. Looking in the direction, I watched Rita dropping off a seemingly unconscious figure at camp, Faolan and Aki walking unusually close together, Sea Fern right by them, and a mantis hybrid bringing in the rear.
None seemed to be alarmed about anything, although I found it strange that Rita had been carrying an unconscious hybrid.
Say something they will, if something bad happened, I concluded and resumed to meditate. 
 
Triton
Rita placed me down against a tree. Just as I thought she was going to leave me be, she reached down and took the pistol I didn't realize I still held from my hand. The hybrid looked at the gun’s ammunition and then at me. “What's this?”
“Something that stopped that hunter from hurting Aki anymore than he already did,” I replied, getting slightly defensive over the phoenix’s safety. “It was just floating in the ocean when I found it and it miraculously worked, though I wouldn't bet on it firing again.”

Tigerlily and Elizabeth Trail

~~Tigerlily~~

Xenophon nodded to us both. "Aaah, k-k-kn..ew s-s-s-some h...hum-mans did n'not.. h-h..hunt, o-o-only k-knew t-to c'call a-as Hun'ters." He said as he looked down slightly. "T-true Hunters... T-the T-t-terr..ib..le o-o-ones.. H-h-hurt.. K-kill. B-b-bur..n us in t-the n-nig..ht.."

I felt blue at the brown mantis's last words. I knew that hunters ki.lled, I was almost ki.lled by one back where the ambush happened but lucky for me, Faolan came to my aid but this thing about burning hybrids is other story entirely. Looking down at the ground, I couldn't help about imagine what that must have looked like in the eyes of Xenophon, ear piercing screams of those being burned alive, the awful smell of blood laying on the ground and smoke clouding the area as the raging fire spreads.. taking life after life. And for those who survived the flames, the hunters would come and finish them off. I give out a sign. “We’ll stop them soon,” Hawk spoke up, his tone of voice having anger in it. I looked up from the ground and noticed his clenched non honey-covered fist. “And those hunters will be on their knees and sorry they even dared a thought about hunting us.”

 

I could sense his raging demeanor towards the hunters. I wouldn't blame him for being that way, the hunters have done some gruesome things and deserve to be taken down without mercy. Reaching over, I placed my hand over his clenched fist, my face expressing confidence and calmness as I looked at him. "We'll have our day and we'll get our freedoms back, we just got to keep fighting," I said with a small smile before looking over at Xenophon "As Hawk said, we'll soon stop them. Once we do the hunters are going to be the least of our worries, because together we're stronger than they are."

 

~~Elizabeth Trail~~

“Thank you so much,” Serephina gratefully took the food and placed them on her lap, which her cloak covered and worked as a makeshift table. And she began to eat. With a smile on my face, I turned my attention away from her and gazed towards the small camp. Things have calmed down which is a good thing, my daughter doesn't have to return and witness the uproar from earlier though she will see her father's face again when she does return, uh.. where is he? I looked around and soon saw him a bit away from the camp, resting under a tree. I stared at him intently until I noticed Rita, Triton, Aki, Faolan and the green mantis entering into the camp again, I wondered why Triton was being carried by Rita and why Aki looked soaked though I didn't ponder on it too much for everything seemed to be ok.
 
So, I returned my attention back on Harry.. what am I going to do with you?

Faolan

Aki said she would get better overnight and that it was not that bad. When we we reached the edge of camp she asked me to breath fire on her and I stopped, finding the request rather odd. Sea Fern showed up at our side shortly after the odd request and began asking questions that Aki replied to quickly.

Aki sneezed and pulled out from inside my wing and stood a few arm-lengths away, demanding fire. I shrugged and figured that she was to cold and needed fire to jumpstart herself. I began to hum a low, resonating note, I had found it better and more controlable than coughing, until I felt the gass of my fire come flowing from my second stomach and opened my mouth slightly to allow the torrent of fire to come flying out of my mouth. compared to  the last time this flame was more controlled but still lacked the stability that Aki had.

 

Salastar

He had caught the scent of a hunter that he had seen earlier and used his GPS locater to get a better sense of where she was and found herin a tree. Raising his rifle he pointed it at the hunter from the cover of a bush and with the stealth that his soldier had learned. Salastar loaded a tranquilozer mag and took a few silent shots at the hybrid, the darts would last at least untill mid day and were designed to go even through his scales.

Aki

Faolan shrugged and began to hum softly rather than coughing and sputtering like the last time I saw him produce fire.
He then opened his mouth slightly, a jet of fire shooting out. I easily caught the fire and wielded it to spiral around me. The flames radiated plenty of heat, providing ample warmth so I wouldn't shiver and accelerated the drying of my clothes. I broke off an ember and took a bite of it. My eyes widened and lit up as I tasted Faolan’s flame.
“Whoa, your flame tastes so good!” I exclaimed. I felt refreshed even after only a small taste of the spiraling flame around me.
I swallowed another piece of fire and smiled. “Promise to give me some every now and then.”
 
Hawk 
I felt a hand cover mine, relaxing my clenched hand. Looking up, I saw it was Tigerlily who did so.
“We'll have our day and we'll get our freedoms back, we just got to keep fighting,” she said with a small smile before looking over at Xenophon. “As Hawk said, we'll soon stop them. Once we do the hunters are going to be the least of our worries, because together we're stronger than they are.”
I gazed warmly at my friend, grateful for her words. Noticing some weariness creeping in on me from today’s walk, I decided to wrap up our little conversation. “Let’s get some rest now,” I suggested. “We’ve yet another long journey ahead of us tomorrow.”
 
Serephina 
After eating, I found myself very sleepy. It wasn't before long my eyes drooped close and was lulled to sleep by the quiet night sounds of the forest.

Faolan

I watched, awestruck, as Aki took my fire and caused it to dance around her in a spiral. She tamed the sparatic fire that came barreling out of my mouth. It was a rather beautiful spectical and my eyes widened more when I watched her pluck a piece of flame off the sprial and actually ate it like a berry, exclaiming that it tasted good.

Aki looked like she was doing much better and even asked for more of my fire to eat every now and then. I felt myself getting low on my flame creating gass and closed my mouth to smother it. Smoke rolled out of my nostrils as the fire di,ed. I went to take a breath of fresh air but wound up coughing out a few puffs of smoke, still need more practice,

I looked up at Aki when I got a couple lungfuls of fresh air, "I guess, I didn't know fire had a tatse.. feeling better?" I asked her.

Sea Fern|Scytha|Baske|Rita Ritz|Mystery.

~Sea Fern the Octopus-Cuttlefish-Seagull hybrid~

Aki smiled at her. "Oh I'm Ok. I have decent healing so my injuries should be gone by tomorrow morning. As of the mind control... we'll stop the scientists soon and finally enjoy not getting chased around. We just need to find the source of all this and destroy whatever has the control," Aki said. Sea Fern nodded,not being chased around sounded good to her,but she still didn't understand much about the mind control,other than it was awful. Aki sneezed and then told Faolan to give her fire. Faolan began to hum and then flames gushed out of his mouth,bright as coral. Sea Fern stepped back and watched in amazement as Aki made the fire spin around her like a water spout made of flame. 

 

~Scytha~

Spotting lights out of the corner of her eye,Scytha momentarily looked up from her meal. Faolan had breathed fire at Aki and she had made it spiral around her. She seemed to pluck a piece of flame out of the air and eat it. 'Eating fire... I wonder what it would taste like?' Scytha imagined it not having so much a taste,but a certain feeling to it that was as good as a taste. Scytha looked at the bright spectacle for a few seconds before going back to eating. 

 

~Baske~

Baske turned her head and saw a swirl of fire surrounding Aki. "Wow! Awesome! Can you do that Ryu?!" Baske said,pointing to the fire encircled hybrid. 

 

~Rita Ritz~

"Something that stopped that hunter from hurting Aki anymore than he already did," Triton replied,sounding slightly defensive. "It was just floating in the ocean when I found it and it miraculously worked,though I wouldn't bet on it firing again," He finished. "Oh,so your the one that took out Salastar? Well good job then,you managed to knock the scientists mind control right out of him," Rita said. She looked the gun over again. It may not work anymore,but maybe they could still use the ammo.

 

~Mystery~

Out of the corner of her eye,Mystery saw a glimpse of white. The Soldier or rather Salastar-the-former-mind-controlled-soldier was near by. Mystery gave no sign of having spotted him,continuing to stare off into space. Instinctively flying to the right,she managed to dodge the darts that Salastar had fired at her,one narrowly hitting the tip of her tail and another almost hitting the edge of her wing. She quickly loaded her bow and landed on a branch,aiming at the place the shots had come from. On the outside her face was blank,void of any emotion,she could just be another mind controlled hybrid for all anyone knew,but on the inside she was laughing 'Your aim is good,but my reaction time is better!' she thought gleefully.

Aki

((People reading this, eating fire irl is highly recommended against. Please don't try it at home XD))
I noticed Faolan cough out some smoke and looked over, concerned if he was ok.
The black dragon seemed to be better within seconds and asked, “I guess, I didn't know fire had a taste.. feeling better?”
I nodded, “Yeah, it's refreshing. Hm...I don't know how to describe the taste of fire though. It like gives off more of a feeling, but it also affects tastes somehow. Like yours gives off this soothing feeling, but it also makes me feel alive and gives the mental sensation of tasting something sweet like honey.”
I grabbed another piece of flame and brushed my hair over a shoulder and looked over the other at my back to locate my injury from Salastar’s assault while he was under mind control. Thanks to the low cut of my shirt, I could easily deal with back wounds without damaging clothes or taking them off.
I found the claw marks and reached over my back with ember in hand and pressed it down on the injury. I felt a slight sting, but soon it was covered by the same soothing feeling as eating it gave. The flames seeped into the wound and disappeared into my body. I then applied some more fire to my skin as if it were lotion, sighing at the nice feeling. Once done, I sucked the rest of the fire into my mouth and swallowed it, relishing the fine taste of Faolan’s fire.
“I don't think I can eat dinner or breakfast,” I commented, cracking a smile. 
 
Ryu  
“Wow! Awesome! Can you do that Ryu?!” I heard Baske exclaim.
I opened one eye and looked where she was pointing at. It seemed like Faolan breathed fire, something Ryu could do if he wished, followed by the flame circling around Aki.
It was a fascinating sight to witness, as those who were still awake were watching the fire wielding hybrid with all sorts of emotions.
“Breathe fire, I can,” I replied. “Have it spin around me like Aki, I cannot.”

Salastar

Salastar watched as his shots came close but did not hit, simple enough. He changed his mag, to ones of concsion shots, mini explosive charges that could easily censored down, or knock out, a target.

Salastar took aim with the Soldier's precision and fired a couple rounds inyo the branch just behind the hunter, it wouldn't matter if she dodge them, in fact it might help him, she could not know what they were in time to dodge the blasts. Salastar followed the two initial shots with a third aimed for her center of mass.

He knew that she might end up leasing an arrow at him but he did not mind, all of hismore vunerable parts were covered by armor.

“Oh, so you're the one that took out Salastar? Well good job then, you managed to knock the scientist's mind control right out of him,” Rita complemented, scanning the gun.
“Thanks, it’s what I do best,” I replied, ready to settle to sleep when my eyes caught some flickering lights.
I looked in the direction of the new brightness and saw Aki in a gyre of flames. I spotted a smile on her face, her emerald eyes sparkling with joy. I felt my lips curl upwards as a result. If she was happy here, so was I.

Sea Fern|Rita Ritz|Baske|Mystery.

~Sea Fern~

Aki continued to spiral the fire around herself,as well as eat it! She rubbed fire against her self,she seemed to be feeling much better than before,probably because she was anything but soaked now. 

"Well... glad you're feeling better Aki. To bad you can't be in the water much,the ocean is magnificent,in fact that's where I'm sleeping tonight," Sea Fern said and then yawned "G'night all," she said,walking towards the water. She then stopped and went back "Faolan,I have a question... I haven't seen Fae or Magnus anywhere in the group. Are they some of the ones that got captured?" Sea Fern asked. 

 
~Rita Ritz~

Triton replied to her compliment saying "Thanks,it's what I do best." He then looked at something and started smiling. Rita turned to see what he was looking at and saw Aki surrounded by a tornado of flame. Rita stared for a few seconds,trying to figure out how she could possibly do that. Not finding an answer,Rita headed over to Aki,placing the rubber-bullet gun in her jeans pocket,where it clinked against the one already there. Walking up to Aki,careful not to get to close to the whirling flames,she asked "How exactly do you do that Aki?"  Sea Fern,who had been watching the amazing spectacle that Aki currently was,said good night and walked away. She came back a few seconds later and asked Faolan a question. Rita drew a sharp intake of breath,she had not realized that Sea Fern did not know what happened to Fae and Magnus. 'She must of left for the ocean before Fae's sacrifice,' Rita thought. 

 

~Baske~

"Breathe fire, I can, have it spin around me like Aki,I cannot," Ryu answered. "Awww,too bad. Oh well back to star gazing," Baske said and returned to staring at the stars. She yawned,it had been a long day of walking and she was getting tired. 

 

~Mystery~

She felt something fly by her ear and a few seconds later a large explosion knocked her off the branch and onto the ground where she rolled a few times before stopping in a crouched position. She had almost hissed in anger and surprise,but her face remained eerily emotionless. 'By Bastet! Ok,this guy is starting to get annoying,' Mystery thought. Flying up she swooped over where Salastar was hiding and faster than he could react she yanked his gun from his hands. She shot an arrow at his wing,it probably wouldn't hurt him much,but hopefully it would distract him. Mystery then flew straight up,up,up until she would be just a dark spec to anyone on the ground. A small grey hybrid high in the dark sky... yeah not an easy thing to track. 'If this guy insists on getting rid of me then fine,I'll leave,makes no difference to me,' she thought. She flew in the direction of the back up facility,called S.C.O.R.H HQ,she had actually never been there before ((Since she started following the escapees soon after they escaped. She left from the Dome and hasn't been in any other facility)) but she knew where it was located. When she arrived without even a captured hybrid and The Soldiers gun the scientists would probably know something was up.

Aki

It was only after I said that that I realized many eyes were on me. I blushed, not used to having so many people looking at me.
The last traces of the warm flames left and combined with my inner flame and I began answering some of the questions and comments that came my way.
“Thanks. And I’ll be honest, I am jealous,” I said to Sea Fern, who left for the ocean. “See you tomorrow then.”
I turned to Rita and answered her question, something I heard repeated by other hybrids. “I was just born able to do it. Phoenix genes I guess. It's like...telling fire what to do with my mind and it just does it.”
I went around answering some more questions of interested hybrids that had gathered at the sight of my fire manipulation. 
 
Ryu  
“Awww, too bad. Oh well back to stargazing,” Baske said and returned to her nightly activity.
I then returned to my meditation, this time falling into a deep rest that would last until daybreak arrived. 
 
Triton
I watched Rita walk over to Aki, seemingly amazed by her pyrokinesis. That's Aki for you, I thought with a sigh. The Phoenix hybrid always played with flames when she could and thankfully, was careful enough not to burn anything. If she ever did, Raka was always around to freeze it before it could spread and do any severe damage. The two siblings were simply amazing. I continued to observe the group around Aki, making sure the Phoenix hybrid was going to do anything stupid.
((Aside from NPC scientists, I’m not. There’s a facility called S.C.O.R.H HQ (Search & Capture of Rogue Hybrids Headquarters) if that helps))

Faolan

I listened to Aki? exlpanation of what fire tasted like and what mine specifically tasted like, I nodded and thought, all I really taste is heat and a sort of burnt wood. I watched as Aki took some more of the fire that spiraled around her and seemed to place it on her back and then began to spread some more on her skin and then finally she sucked in all of the remaining fire, commenting that she would not be able to eat dinner or breakfast.

I heard Sea Fern's comment and a good night and I was about to reply with a similar courtesy but she came back shortly with a question, one that was going to be sad to answer. I took in a deep breath and let it out in a heavy sigh, my head bent towards the ground, before I turned to face Sea Fern who had taken off before the sad moments had transpired. "Sea Fern... Fae and Magnus... Fae sacraficed herself to keep us safe from the exterminators and Magnus got trapped while trying to get the rest of the hybrids out of the dome..." I told the cuttlefish hybrid in a low, sad tone, "they are no longer with us but passed as heros.. martyrs to remember and avenge" I told her.

Salastar

He had to hand it to the quick and nible hybird, she managed to get his other weapon and put an arrow through his wing, with out so much as a possible mild concussion and temporary hearing loss. However he still had weapons, he knew he had plenty as he watched the hybrid take off into the night sky, no doubt to warn the scientists of him going rouge. Salastar broke the arrow's head off and pulled the rest of it out through the hole in his wing before expertly jamming his clawed finger into a part of his wrist-mounted computer, killing it instantly, and wripped it from his arm along with the camera on his horn.

Turning away from the place of conflict he went deeper into the forest, drawing the two kukri knives that were sheathed on his thighs, and began to hunt more hunters and protect himself from any danger.

((Gahh, no it's not your fault feather, the gifs aren't showing up at all so I don't think they're effecting anything. This has mostly been personal stuff as opposed to technology being rood.))

§ James §

Soraka doesn't reply, instead staring at him with that soulless expression, then freezing his feet to the floor. James felt angered by this, glancing down at his now trapped feet as the hybrid circled behind him, grabbing his arms and pulling them behind him. James sighed deeply, staring at the ground. Then something very, very faint caught his attention. "Sorry." He heard whispered behind him, with a 'click' as the cuffs were fitted on him. The hybrid then circled back around to his front, face void of emotion, as she summoned her sword back to her and pressed it back against his neck. Her apology almost made him angrier, but at the same time James knew she was just following orders. He would've done the same had it been him. He kept only a steely glare at the female, having no words to say.

The scientist sighed in dissatisfaction as the battle between the two beasts lasted not too long at all. The Shark had obviously held back, a shame too as it probably could've kilked the female. The scientist shook his head. "A shame of a duel, for sure. Oh well.." He sighed, monitoring the guards' progress. He noticed the female standing quite still and remembered he'd added in for it to wait until further instructed. Leaning forward he typed in new orders:

/input/:V:Keep guard until backup arrives. Once backup arrives, follow their instruction.:V:

He found it bothersome, the special coding system they'd designed for such affairs. It really was the work of madmen and made as much of a lick of sense as reasoning with these people in the first place. He cracked a smile to himself. "It's perfect."

Guards stormed into the room through a hidden door in the wall. James wished they'd gone in through THAT way so they wouldn't have to do all of that tiresome climbing. He growled low in his throat, eyeing the armed men. There were about five of them. One approached Soraka, a heavier-ish man. "We have orders to escort a prisoner from here." He said gruffly to Soraka. "Stand down." The man then turned and held his ear, talking through an earpiece. "Any further instructions?" He asked, then rolled his eyes a moment later. James watched on with mild amusement as the guard begrudgingly added on "...My Lord."

"Yes," The scientist replied back. "Take the Fish to the Medical Wing to have its memory wiped, I shan't think it to be smart enough to need any further treatment than that. As for the girl-" The scientist paused as he thought of what to do with her, seeing as how she was the one that'd been reading the plans. A sly grin spread on his lips. "Leave her. She's in my trap now, and no matter what she knows she can't do a thing about it." He grinned at the thought, knowing full and well that if she ever acted out he could just take over. She was his pawn now.

The guard turned and faced the hybrids. "Female, stand down and retract that cage. We have orders to escort this hybrid for a memory-wipe." He barked, walking up to Soraka. James didn't like the sound of 'Memory wipe', though he figured he might be able to take these guys. He glared out at Soraka from within his icy cage.

♪ Xenophon ♪

Xenophon was stirred from his thoughts when Hawk suddenly and firmly spoke up. "We'll stop them soon," He said, clenching his empty fist. "And those hunters will be on their knees and sorry they ever dared a thought about hunting us." Xenophon admired the hybrid's strength and fiery tone, feeling envious of it. "If only I had a spirit like his.." Xenophon thought quietly. He watched as Ty slowly put her hand over Hawk's, staring up into his eyes. "We'll have our day and we'll get our freedoms back, we just got to keep fighting." She said, then turned to look at Xenophon. "As Hawk said, we'll soon stop them. Once we do the hunters are going to be the least of our worries, because together we're stronger than they are." She said, Xenophon nodding in response. Their words sounded so hopeful, but that's what the Mantis hybrid feared. He still doubted they could ever defeat the menace of those beasts, and figured it vain to try. Still, it was an uplifting thought.

"Let's get some rest now, we've yet another long journey ahead of us tomorrow." Hawk said. Xenophon nodded, though didn't quite want to. He'd already slept earlier and was still brimming with questions and curiousity. He wondered if he should turn to the other hybrids of the camp to answer them, though felt hesitant to do so. "W-w-will g-go bb-back t...t-to cam'p?" He inquired of them, deciding that if they were to go back he'd go back with them, though if they were to stay then there'd be no bother going back. It seemed a good compromise to appease both his curiousity and his burning nervousness.

Xenophon nodded in response. “Let’s get some rest now, we’ve yet another long journey ahead of us tomorrow.” Hawk suggested, speaking up. Practically in sync, both me and Xenophon nodded to his suggestion, it was indeed late and I'm already feeling a bit drowsy. "W-w-will g-go bb-back t...t-to cam'p?"
 
I, honestly, wasn't willing to head back because my father most likely was going to be there but I knew well that we couldn't be away from camp for too long, with the hunters hunting us down and all we wouldn't want to be easy targets or worry anyone back in camp. "Yeah, back to camp. We're better off being there than being out here by ourselves also we wouldn't want anyone to start worrying." I answered Xenophon's inquiry before I stood up, my hand simply sliding off of Hawk's former clenched fist as I did. 
 

~~Elizabeth Trail & Harry Trail~~

After pondering over important matters and witnessing an amazing sight of flames spiraling around Aki, Elizabeth soon felt weary and fell asleep with her back against the tree. As for Harry though he was more determined to stay up no matter how sleepy he felt, he decided to lay down on his back with his head resting on his hiker backpack and simply gazed up through the trees leaves to see the stars and his thoughts kept him company.

~Sea Fern the Octopus-Cuttlefish-Seagull hybrid~

Sea Fern listened to what Faolan said. 'So... they're de.ad?' she thought. "Oh," she said out loud. She turned around and walked away,tears starting to collect in her eyes. She waded into the water. Seagill swam up to her,settling in the tentacles on her head. Sea Fern sat on the ocean floor,crying and thinking 'I should just leave,before I get kil.led too. I should find a hidden reef where the hunters will never find us,' The ocean was probably the safest place to be,she had read that people had only explored a tiny fraction of the immense ocean; she could go find some deep place that no one had ever laid eyes on and no one ever would,except her. 'No,I can't just swim away again and leave everyone else to be hunted down!' and she knew,that even if she could find a hidden place to stay,she would always be worried that they would find her. 'I'll stay and help these people,the other hybrids,' Sea Fern decided. She swished her tails and swam to a slightly deeper spot and,curled her tail around a rock to anchor herself and let the sound of the currents lull her to sleep. 

 

~Rita Ritz~

Aki answered her question. "I was just born able to do it. Phoenix genes I guess. It's like... telling fire what to do with my mind and it just does it,". Rita nodded,wasn't the best explanation,but she figured Aki didn't know exactly how she could do it either. Faolan answered Sea Fern's questions about Fae and Magnus, Sea Fern simply said "Oh" and walked into the ocean. Rita turned to Faolan, "Goodnight Faolan,see you tomorrow. And I put Triton over there," she said,pointing at Triton. Rita walked to the tree her uncle was under,he was sound asleep. She sat down,careful not to wake him. She yawned wide. Closing her eyes she slowly slumped down until she was lying on the ground,asleep and dreaming of an island in the middle of the sea.

I sighed heavily when I saw Sea Ferns reaction, I could tell it had stuck her hard for I had seen the beginning of tears before she had taken off into the ocean. "Goodnight Rita and thank you" I replied as I cast a glance at the sleeping form of Triton.

With one last fatigue filled sigh I walked towards a tree, ready to get some sleep. As I passed Aki I spoke, "goodnight Aki, try to get some sleep" I said with a smile, remebering the insomnic night before. I found a nearby tree and took shelter under it, facing the group of hybrids that I were also laying down.

I however did not seek out sleep just yet, I was thinking on what Harry had said and my plans once we found some more humans. There had to be some that once they learned of what we had gone through, they would side with us and help us out. I continued to sit their against the tree my eyes distant as I thought.

Xenophon ~ Male ~ Ghost Mantis/Budwing Mantis Hybrid

♪ Xenophon ♪

"Yeah, back to camp. We're better off there than being out here by ourselves also we wouldn't want anyone to start worrying." Ty replied, getting up. Xenophon got to his feet as well, waving his antenna. "Oh ok." He said, then started off past the two on route to the camp. He wasn't in any hurry, walking along while staring up at the midnight sky. The lights above pulsed and twinkled, enticing him with their simple majesty. He'd always wondered why there were tiny lights in the sky at night. He decided to ponder this often-pondered question as he walked. "I've decided they're not eyes watching me.. Or glowing-bugs so high up.. Or distant hunter-lights, as Hunters don't fly.. Or dew drops on a giant black web.. Or tiny suns.." He listed off various concepts that had crossed him over the years, when an abstract concept struck him. "Maybe they're souls of our ancestors..." The thought seemed frightening and sad to him, seeing as there were so many, but at the same time it seemed intriguing. But then it gave him the thought that it meant they really WERE eyes watching him, though before he could properly terrify himself he was in the camp. He found himself in the near-middle of it, actually. Nervousness crept over him though subsided as most of the hybrids appeared to be sleeping. He took this liberty to browse about the camp, looking the hybrids over with equal curiousity. He noticed the black bat-winged one over a ways away, propped against a tree. He felt it was still awake so he thought it best to just look at him from afar. He sat down by a tree, curling his arms against himself and tucking his antenna against his head. The sleepy scene seemed quiet and resolute, an air of purpose hanging around them. The determination and will to press on was evident amongst them, whether it be in their haunted gazes back or their hopeful glances towards the horizon. It intrigued him to think hybrids acted in such ways, even though it was a possibility he was one himself. He glanced around, quite a bit curious but knowing he couldn't bother anyone much for now. They all seemed tired, and he knew not to disturb them. He quietly sorted his thoughts as he sat at that tree, absentmindedly staring at the leader of the group since he was the most interesting thing to stare at (for Xenophon) at the moment.

Tigerlily - Harry Trail

~~Tigerlily~~

Following my lead, Xenophon also got up. "Oh ok." He said, then started off past us on route to the camp. I waited for Hawk to get up from ground before setting off, trailing the brown mantis from behind and reverting to my own thoughts.

After trekking through the forest for sometime, we eventually arrived at camp where most of the hybrids were already asleep. A sense of relief filled within as I took a breathe and gazed around the camp; everything is so quiet and calm the only thing you could hear is the crickets chirping under the sparkling night sky and the others sleeping peacefully. Before long my eyes stopped on a figure who's a bit away from camp, laying down on the ground with his head rested on his hiker backpack.. my father. He seemed to be already asleep which is fine by me though this reminds me, I need to talk to my mother about him especially on why he's here. 
Switching my gaze away from him and inspecting the area, I soon found my mother under a tree next to a female hybrid, both sound asleep. Inwardly, I signed.. well, I'm gotta have to talk with mother about my father tomorrow. Turning to Hawk, I spoke "I want to thank you for comforting me earlier, I really do appreciate it.." I paused for a moment and swayed for about minute before I stepped forward and kissed the side of his cheek (or is it beak?) ".. so, thanks." I departed from his side and went over to the tree that I had picked earlier, the one with the nice canopy over head; I climbed up and layed down on one of its thick branches and closed my eyes.
 

 

 

~~Harry Trail~~

*After realizing that his daughter has returned, he too closes his eyes and soon falls asleep*

((moving things along))

I continued to watch the hybirds fall asleep and soon noticed that the mantis hybrid was watching me, it was a little unnerving but he was a silent creature, at least from what I knew, I doubted he was doing intentionally. Shrugging mentally I tried to get a bit more comfortable against the tree and let the overwelming fatigue wash over me.

((onward to the town))

Our next day of treking yeilded nothing in excitement, both in a good way and bad. Most had found it a dreary day with it being overcast but none could deny the pleasure of simple and easy day that was void of ambush or unknown people, besides the enigma that was Harry. Of whom always had at least one hybrid asigned to him to keep an eye on the man and keep him from doing much of anything besides walk with the group

With the ease of a cloudy day behind them the next day proved to be more exciting. It started with some washed up trash, it was thought to be something that had been floating for a while. This thougth however dissapeared when a long burnt out fire pit and later a city limits sign appeared on the beach.

Now entering the city of Silverhills

Unfortunately most of the hybrids could not read and relied on the humans and the more educated hybrids to read it for them. I was very rusty in reading but I found myself able to read the basic sign. The rest of the day had been spent in scilence in order to listen for humans. On a snap desicion I moved our group into the forest and away from the exposed beach at roughly mid day.

It was closing in on middle of the afternoon when the sounds of a town came creeping in through the forest. As we had neared the town I had begun to get a feeling, something strange, something familiar, I did not know what though so I kept the thought at the back of my mind.

I haulted our progress by stopping dead in my tracks and looked back at the other hybrids, mainly the ones that I trusted and knew the most. "Up for a scouting party?" I asked them.

 

Zachary Spicer

He drove up in his ricety looking truck, a good cover to keep suspicion at bay, to much attention would be brought to himself if he drove a vehicle that was more fitting for the tech that his vehicle was tricked out with. Before Spicer stood a grey office complex that was surrounded by a simple cain link fence, though it did not look like it, this place was the head quarters of the UN's secret research devision.

Zachary pushed the button on the black box that had but a camera, a button and the mesh holes of a speaker, "-bzzt- yes hello..." the box said, "Spicer here for a company med check" he said, code for his purpose. "In you go then, please use the underground parking -bzzt-" the male sounding guard said before the gate slowly rolled open and admitted the truck.

Spicer drove in and went through the open door into the small parking garage. Shutting his engine off he stepped out of the vehicle and went straight to the elevator where he entered a code beside the door and stepped into the opening doors. he selected one of underground levels and was sent down into the ground. The door opened up into a white halway that held doors to rooms that held a hybrid quantum super computer, private server rooms, and almost classroom like rooms with roughly twenty moniters.

Zachary passed them all by an went straight for the conferance room at the end of the halway. Spicer entered the room and sitting at the table was one women of whom he he would be ataining the crippling virus from.
