Shake your head. Smile it off.

Heather did nothing that the animus told her.

'Yeah, don't be worried. It's fine, he's just being an idiot.'

WHY AREN'T YOU DOING AS I'M TELLING YOU?!

She covered her ears but it did little to nothing. She shook her head in disgust.

Shut up. I can do what I wan't.

Aggravating little- I'll make you do as I ask soon enough.

(Yea, my time zone is very different to almost everyone I've met here lol. I just had lunch an hour ago XD anyways cya :D)

"Thanks Scorpion." Abyssal said. He scanned the group again. The trio of Skywings in the back still kept to themselves... He wished that he knew more about their combat skills. Every extra unknown just threw the plan into more danger. "The talk to them, you idiot" he told himself. He sighed, then pulled back a bit to fly level with them. "You guys holding up ok?" He asked them.

Heather

She relaxed on the wind, her wings beggining to sore. She wondered how far it was to the island. She looked over and noticed Abyssal moving towards the MudWing's and SkyWing's trio. She listened in.

'I'm fine,' Fawn said. Brick was just staring at the sea, whereas Wrath looked.. she couldn't put her claw on it, which was very unusual for her. She tried to place his expression into a certain category; he was listening closely, his ears perked up. He didn't seem to be aching or anything.. Is the voice in his head? He looks like he's focused on something else.

'Me too,' Wrath said after letting the silence hang for a while, 'I'm just wondering how long it'll be till we get there, and where we'll go next.'

The SkyWing seemed to choose his words very carefully. And his tone wasn't the same as usual. It was kind of unsettling. She discreetly slid closer to them.

"It'll be a few more days, as long as the weather holds. And we'll have to start tracking the assassin once we're their. Hopefully get a map of the land from the locals." Abyssal replied, giving a reassuring smile. He wasn't sure what their expressions meant, but it sure as heck wasn't good.

Scorpion looked at Sunset again, who was still studying the map, pretending nobody was around. She must have sensed him looking, since she snapped her head around and saw him. She gave a very small smile and turned back. Scorpion flattened his ears, she wasn't ok.

Sunset flicked her ears, picking up on Abyssal's question. She laid them back down, still alert and tense everywhere. She flapped her wings once to keep with the current, still studying the map as Scorpion came from behind. "What do you want?" Sunset asked, not looking up. "Are you ok?" Scorpion asked. "Oh sure, totally fine." Sunset lied. "And definitely not losing it on the inside." She mumbled under her breath, focusing on her map

Sage was a bit worried at Heather's reply, she just wished she knew what the animus usually said to them. She'd never heard him herself but she could guess it wasn't good.

Scorpion and Sunset

Scorpion arced an eyebrow at her. "What!?" Sunset asked. "I know you're lying." Scorpion said simply. Sunset growled in annoyance. "Did you come back just to question my every sentence?" Sunset asked, then turned her head to the other side. Scorpion felt hurt and flattened his ears. He caught a wind current so he'd slow down and be away from Sunset, who was still looking the other way.

Abyssal noticed the sibling fighting and internally screamed. They hadn't even ARRIVED and the team was already falling apart! The trio next to him didn't seem to trust him, Sunset and Scorpion were at each other's throats... THis was going to be a disaster...

Sunset shook her head and went back to studying the map, bringing out a pencil and marking some notes on the first island. "Let's see...has trees, plenty of fish nearby, comfortable and of course loads of water." Sunset muttered, writing it down. She made a mark on it and went back to studying the Pantala coast. She looked up at the sky thinking when who else but the animus came back. "Wow, a bit harsh to your brother?" He hissed. "I dont judge you on your family life, so stay out of mine." Sunset muttered. "Yea, yea. Thing is, you're endangering your brother and i KNOW you still care about him...ooo that could be useful." The animus hissed. "Keep your claws OFF OF HIM." Sunset thought, narrowing her eyes and swishing her tail angrily.

Robin could practically touch the tension between Sunset and Scorpion. He flew up to Scorpion.

'Are you alright?' he asked gently. He didn't know the SandWing well, but he certainly cared about his sister. He wanted her free of all this misery just as he did.

"Yea...She's just being her stubborn self. She doesnt like to ask for help, just stews in whatever she's dealing with until its too much." Scorpion said. "Still doesnt mean when she snaps that it doesnt hurt. I'm trying to make up for not being there for her, but she's just...gah she's just being the annoying sister she always was!" Scorpion managed to bit back an annoyed growl.

In all honesty, Robin had no idea how to help. Fawn wasn't the kind of dragon to snap at him, even if he hadn't seen her for 3 years. Still didn't compare to 10 though...

'You need to tell her that. Explaining how you feel is the only way to go; you can't just sit around waiting for her to realise.'

Scorpion looked at Sunset, who was thrashing her tail wildly and a frown was on her face. "Honestly, I'm getting the feeling she doesnt even WANT any family near her, even me." Scorpion said. Scorpion looked down, watching as the water flashed in the sun.

It’s getting so hard not to use Wrath- welp

'I guess I'm ready. But is combat the right way to go?' Wrath asked, his tone sounding awkward again. 
 

Robin sighed. 'She's not like my siblings. She cares about you, she just hides it. She might be afraid that the animus will use it against her...'

 

'Like he used it against me,' he added in a mellow tone.

Abyssal tilted his head curiously. "I don't see what else there is. He's not the type to be reasoned with, he sees himself as superior. We'll do our best to lure him into a trap, but everything will eventually lead to combat, so best be prepared for that."

That dang animus laughed. "You're trying SO HARD not to get buddy-buddy with your brother again, and I'm loving it!" The animus laughed. Sunset growled. "He doesnt need the most annoying animus on all four corners of this world bothering him. Pushing him away is the best." Sunset thought, looking down, upset. "Hey, ouch. I'm NOT the most--" The animus started. "WILL YOU JUST SHUT UP?!" Sunset yelled outloud. She snapped her mouth shut and groaned at herself.

Scorpion and Sunset

Scorpion hesitated but flew over to her. Sunset was taking some deep breaths. "Um...hi." Scorpion said. "Hey yourself." Sunset said, not looking at him. Scorpion took a deep breath. "Is it because of the animus your like this?" Scorpion asked. "Maybe." Sunset said quietly. "Sunset, honest. Yes or no?" Scorpion asked. "Ugh, fine, YES. You happy?" Sunset snapped. "Why, i can handle myself." Scorpion said. "Because you dont want to deal with this headache of a dragon." Sunset tilted her head. "Right now he's saying that i was a fool to say anything. WELL TOUGH." Sunset growled, halfway to the animus. Scorpion shook his head. "I want to know the Sunset you are now, not the Sunset that's hidding everything." Scorpion said gently. "Well, the Sunset i am right now is scared, nervous, and very very VERY mad." Sunset said.

"Well, dont be. We're going to figure this out and take that animus out. Then if we have to, we'll pick off those elders to save the tribe. You dont realize it, but you have a team of friends to help you through all this. Let them help, they understand you and can HELP you." Scorpion said, gently brushing the tip of her wing. Sunset looked away. "Open up and they can help. But, yea, still your choice i wont make you decide." Scorpion said. Sunset tensed. "I'll think about it." She muttered. "Alright." Scorpion drifted for a moment, letting Sunset get ahead again and exhaled. That had gone better than he thought it would.

Sunset felt the animus keeping it up. She'd about had enough. Silently she gripped her pin. She considered enchanting it to take out that voice once and for all. "Oh and lose more of your soul? Please do." The animus hissed. Sunset paused and looked back down, dropping her claw from the pin.

He smiled. 'I just gave Scorpion a little bit of a nudge forward. Sunset still cares about his that's for sure, it's that animus getting in the way of things. Scorpion needs a little self confidence and Sunset needs to learn that she doesn't have to be so independent, and especially so stubborn about it.'

Forcing her nerves down, Sunset went back to her studying. Sure, the Pantala coast was simple, but Pantala itself...shaking her head, Sunset stuffed the map in her bag, her claw brushing the journal. Snarling in disgust, Sunset turned back to the sky

Alright, something was DEFINITELY up with that journal. And there was DEFINITELY a CERTAIN VOICE in her head that knew something about it.

'What's with that journal?' she muttered out loud, quiet enough that no normal dragon would hear.

No response. She hissed to herself. She was going to have to ask Sunset, and it was clearly a harsh topic.. but if something was wrong she had to help. She flew up to Sunset.

'Sunset, are you alright?' she said, trying to start the conversation she needed. Even though she had a feeling Sunset was tired of being asked that.

Sunset had zoned out to think but snapped back when she heard Heather. "What? Oh yea, totally fine." Sunset lied. She knew that Heather wasnt going to buy it, but their focus was on the animus, not her. She glanced back down at her bag and back at Heather. "How about you? Are you ok?" Sunset asked, desperately wanting to change the subject.

Sunset thought for a moment. Then she felt a wave of memories crash over her head. Her wings stopped for a second, but she flapped them hard again. "No...dont." Sunset muttered. She shut her eyes for a second. "So THATS why you feel independant and that you have to be. Awwww you didnt have a true family to teach you otherwise. Dont worry, once you lose you're soul, you'll have ME to depend on." The animus hissed, clearly delighted. Sunset growled. "No." She thought. "Hm. You'll learn to see what I'm doing through my eyes eventually because...oh right, i still am trying to get that possession spell though." The animus said. Sunset clentched her claws, forcing herself to not use her magic to seriously shut up this animus.

His talk had made her better, he was sure, but she was still thinking she had to caring everything that hurts her by herself.  Scorpion opened his wings so he could slow down so Sunset had room, but his expression was determined to help her

Abyssal

Abyssal sighed, and scanned the horizon. He was relieved to see the next island in front of them, a bare rocky outcropping. Probably not much prey, except for a few seabirds and fish. Hopefully it didn't rain, there probably wouldn't be much shelter. But at least it would be a rest. His wings ached horribly. He'd hardly slept at all last night, and he was feeling it now. Maybe he could get someone else to take watch... No, he'd take a stimulant and do it. Let everyone else rest. 

"Island ahead" He called, alerting the rest of the group, then angling towards the island. He landed near the shore, his legs shaking slightly. He turned to check that the rest of the dragons were following safely.

Sunset sighed in relief at the island and dove, landing a little farther from Abyssal. She stretched her wings and neck. "Oof that was a little longer than I thought it would be." She said. Looking at the landscape, she scribbled down a note on this island. "Rock and a little barren, not a ton of prey probably. " She muttered, swishing her tail back and forth.

Robin relaxed on the rock. It's roughness was rather uncomfortable, but he could make do. He flopped his wings down.

'Tired, eh?' Heather asked, landing beside him. Her expression wasn't as playful as he'd expect from her tone of voice. Then again, compared to most others she was hard to read.

'Very. Have any magic stimulants?' he asked with a grin.

'And pain reliefs, of course,' she said, returning his smile. He took them from her, letting himself feel as drained as he indeed was.

Sunset crouched down and shrugged off her bag. It accidentally tipped over, spilling out everything that was in it. Letting out a quiet curse, she used her tail and brushed the items back in, her tail hesitating when it came to the journal though. "I should just burn and throw this thing into the ocean." Sunset muttered

Deciding on something better, Sunset grabbed her dagger and started throwing it at a nearby rock. Practicing her aim would be a good idea, since the dagger was an important part of the plan. Also just cause she needed to work though some stuff. The rock cracked the 10th time she hit it, making a loud noise when it did. Sunset winced at the noise.

Abyssal confirmed that everyone was ok, then nearly toppled over with exhaustion. Ok... Maybe a very very short power nap while everyone was still settling, and then he'd take watch. He spotted a bit of a depression fairly close to the ocean and curled up on it. He hardly had time to settle before he fell asleep.

Scorpion laid next to Sunset. She was alert and tense, apparently watching. "You want me to watch?" Scorpion asked. "I've got it, you rest." Sunset said. Scorpion curled up and fell asleep next to Sunset, who was ready for anything. Just as he was about to dream, he smiled. He was getting back with his sister

Abyssal woke up suddenly and looked around. He still felt exhausted, but forced himself to look at the sky and check the time. Then he swore. He'd only meant to sleep for maybe fifteen minutes, but it had clearly been hours. He stood, shaking his head to try and wake himself up further. He spotted Sunset keeping watched and walked over, sitting next to her. "Sorry, didn't mean to sleep so long." He whispered. "I can take over watch from here, you get some rest."

She didn't bother Abyssal for the amulet, because he might needed more than she did. Twitching her tail so it was not pointed at any dragon, she fell asleep

Heather

Heather flicked her ears, facing away from Sunset and Abyssal. She stared out at the way back to Phyrria, falling into the gentle lullaby of silence. She didn't know what to do any more; everything was kind of messed up. She wanted to hold it together, but she didn't feel that she had the ability. Nor.. the energy. It took a whole lot of patience to keep a group together. There's something that Robin has; patience. Especially with dragons. Something I need to improve on, a whole lot. She sighed, flicking her wings in rhythm to the wind. She didn't say a word to the others; if they noticed she was awake, they did, if they didn't they didn't. She had no personal preference, she was just enjoying not hearing that animus yabbering at her nonstop. If he's not in my head he's in someone else's. I need to be careful.

Meanwhile, Scorpion woke up and stretched. He noticed sunset was sleeping and he gently nuzzled her forehead, sitting up

"Sleep well." He whispered, before settling himself into a watch position. He wondered if he should give her the amulet for a moment, then decided to wait and see. If she seemed like she was having nightmares though... He pulled his wings in closer and scanned the horizon, his eyes easily adjusting to the dark.
