Route of Sea(Path 69-Sweet Talk)

September 30, 2009

Fyen was sitting on the ground, looking at Acenil Lyriay, her mother.
“So, how is your life after so many years of leaving home? I know you like to travel across the globe, but I’m sure that you don’t like that after all,” Acenil bad mouthed her.
“Your habit of bad mouthing hasn’t changed after all, eh? I heard that you quarreled with the neighbor because father ordered them to clean their house and they refused to,” She stood up and leaned against the wooden wall. She felt nostalgic of the house’s condition.
“You know my mouth ‘come from the realm of satan’, right? So, it can’t be helped,” She laughed evilly. Fyen felt awkward of her response.
“So, how is my boyfriend? What do you think of him?” Fyen looked outside. The residential area was as peaceful as usual.
“I don’t know, but I think he has treated you very well, I must say. Only you really know who he is. Your heart is clearer than ever when you are in love and it should always be that,” She reminded Fyen. She walked outside for some wandering around, perhaps to spread flames around the community.
“Mother, can you stop that?” Fyen sat down on the chair Acenil was sitting earlier. A few seconds later, Nastra and Orsio went inside the house. They seemed a little bit tired.
“This dude gone berserk when he fight against me. Yet, he is indeed a worthy person for you. Enjoy yourselves,” Orsio told her and went inside his room. “She will need something ‘umph’ if she wants to continue,”
“Well, I passed your parents’ side, but I doubt if you will pass my parents’ side. They want me to have kids,” Nastra sighed. Fyen was shocked upon hearing that and took out her sniper gun.
“How many times I’ve told you that I hate kids?” Fyen aimed the gun on his forehead.
“Shoot me. I know I can’t persuade my parents to change their mind,” Nastra lied on the wall, waiting for her to shoot him. A few second later, she kept her sniper gun in her dimensional storage.
“Well, there is a reason why I hate kids. My brother was killed in a fight when he was 7. His opponent injured him badly before he was finished. I don’t want my child died that way,” Tears dropped from her eyes. She looked outside again.
“Now I see. It can’t be helped. Fighting has its own risks that we can’t avoid. Every fight that we face might send us to the realm of graves. What we can do is fight our best,” Nastra went towards her and wiped her tears.
“I know. Someday, I’ll go out from this trauma,” Fyen tightened her fists. Suddenly, Orsio went out from his room, with a sniper gun. The sniper scope was rotatable and much longer than hers, with a handle which has a button. The weapon seemed to me modeled after the esquadria.
“Isn’t that you wanted to destroy it?” Fyen wondered why the weapon was still there.
“I thought that I wanted to pass this to you. The erkefia is yours now. Use it to exterminate the weapons,” Orsio handed the weapon to her. “I know you are with the chosen one. Good luck in your mission,”
“Thanks. I’ll come back after I settled with his parents,” They left the house and went back to the statue.
“Let’s go. Marsei said that we will have meeting with the Lhanaz clan three days from now so we have to move fast,” Serene told everyone. They left the area and continued their journey. The meeting will soon be disastrous….

Route of Sea(Path 67-The Test)

September 29, 2009

Three days later, they all arrived at the cave. As usual, the entrance is on the seabed and it requires diving deep inside to enter. Serene was anxious looking at the entrance.
“Are you nervous or what?” Waryl asked her. She tightened her grip on her blade guns.
“I just worried if I’ll lose this time. My blade guns seemed to be reaching their limits,” Serene sighed.
“Don’t worry. I know you can do it,” Kairos approached her and told her. She nodded and dived into the cave. The entrance was sealed to prevent anyone from attempting to enter the cave. In the cave,
“Hmm…this place looks exactly like the previous one. But it seems that the enemy isn’t here,” Serene walked towards the altar and she was teleported towards the realm of saint again. This time, the seabed was way deep that it was not seen; perhaps the sea itself is a bottomless pit. A sorcerer wearing purple robe with a jade wand appeared in front of her.
“Let’s start the fight!” He charged himself with flame aura and cast flame astraea on her. She dashed towards him while dodging the heat waves launched from the magic circles formed above her head and below her legs. He charged his wand and shot a few laser beams towards her but she dodged it. She attempted to charge her blade gun and stab the laser coated blades, but her attack was blocked by his wand.
“This dude is very persistent. I need some new tactics,” Serene kept her blade guns into her dimensional storage and took out a pair of rocket launchers. She charged them with frost aura and shot a few freezing rockets. He charged his wand and formed a barrier. Yet, the rockets hit the barrier and ice was formed on it, hindering his sights. He broke the barrier along with the ice and launched the debris towards them. She dashed away from the debris to prevent any damage.
“That trick won’t work on me. Prepare to lose!” He charged his wand with photons and shot some rainbow shaped laser beams, which loops towards her in the rainbow formation. She threw them away and took out a piece of mirror. The beams were reflected back towards him. She took out her blade guns again and dashed towards him. Yet, he absorbed them into his wand and shot a laser blast on her. It hit her and she was pushed 50 meters away.
“What the….” She was unable to move. He charged his wand with frost aura and launched a freezing beam. Suddenly, she recovered and dodged the freezing beam. Yet, she was exhausted.
“Tired already? I’ll send you back,” He charged his wand with bolt aura and launched a few encased bolt strikes towards her. She absorbed them into her blade guns and shot them back towards him. He dodged them, but she quickly teleported to his back and cross slashed him. He fell into the pit and disappeared. Then, the Ladrefin(God of storage)’s box appeared in front of her.
“Get the last item and I’ll see you soon,” A mysterious sound appeared and she was teleported back to the seabed. Then, another sound portal appeared.
“I received reports that Bask Island will be attacked so I hope that you’ll investigate this. Fyen, defend your hometown,” Marsei told them and closed the communication.
“You are from there?” Serene was surprised by his statement.
“Yes. It is very far from the place I first met you,” Fyen told her. “Let’s go. I’ll take you for some tours,” They continued to swim eastwards. This is their next rest….

Route of Sea(Path 66-Rescue Mission Part Two)

September 27, 2009

Serene started her attack by shooting a few laser coated sword bullets towards it, but it dodged them and swam towards them. The injured soldier charged his pocket knife with bolt aura and threw it towards Kiarsk, but it was missed.
“Take that!” Kairos charged his cannons with flame aura and launched a few heat waves towards it but it was missed too. It rammed Nastra onto the “cliff” of Sta Island and bit his leg, but he quickly charged his knuckles with bolt aura and launched a few wave punch attack towards it. They were both electrocuted, but only Nastra was injured and fainted. Kiarsk swam away from him and continued to charge towards the others.
“Fyen, rescue your boyfriend. I’ll take care of that demonic fish,” Serene told her. She quickly dashed towards Nastra and tried to recover him. At the meantime, the soldier healed himself and dashed towards Kiarsk, but it flapped its tails and he was thrown towards Fyen. They crashed the “cliff” again and injured. Creise took the chance by launching a few crescent shaped slash waves towards it and it was injured, yet it quickly healed itself.
“….” Kiarsk howled a few wave pulses towards them, but Kairos cancelled them by shooting the same wave pulses. Creise threw her khérista in a projectile motion. It broke its tail, but it was recovered quickly. Everyone was shocked by such fast and powerful recovery. They were all smashed onto the ground when it swam towards them, spun itself in a horizontal formation and rammed them from above.
“Tch…this is not the end yet,” Serene charged her blade guns with ice aura and launched the blades on her guns towards it. It dodged them and they were teleported back onto the guns’ barrels. It dived downwards; trying to bite her, but Kairos woke up and shot a few sonar wave pulses towards it and it was pushed away. Waryl, who was 1 meter away from it, charged his sword with bolt aura and cross slashed it, but it was unharmed. He quickly dashed away from it, knowing that it will try to bite him.
“Curses…where is its weak spot?” Creise charged her khérista and launched a few circular slash waves towards Kiarsk, but they were dodged. Oddly, it seemed that every dodged attack were at the sides rather than above and below of its body. Then, it dashed towards Fyen, who was healing herself, after Nastra and the soldier were recovered. She sensed its movement and shot a few rotating screw bullets. It went into its mouth and pierced through his body. It quickly swam away from her.
“Die, evil beast,” Creise dashed towards Kiarsk in close range. She threw the khérista thought its mouth as if it was a lance and it was turned into dusts. They all had some rest on the seabed, knowing that the fight has caused some exhaustion on them.
“This is such a crazy fight,” Creise sighed.
“Cos’ you attack that piranha at such a close range?” Kairos bad mouthed her. She quickly pinched his stomach.
“You are much suck than me, bastard!” Creise scolded him. A few minutes later, a sound portal appeared.
“I’m afraid you’ll have to leave here right now. There is an old abandoned cave at the north east from the place you are now. Just go ahead. We’ll catch up with you later,” Wrenfa told them and closed the communication.
“Bask Island…looks like I’m almost home after all,” Fyen sighed. Just when they wanted to swim northwards,
“Take this! It will be very useful when you are in the cave,” He threw six mining axes towards them. They took one each and continued their swimming. The next holy item will be theirs, but it will not be that easy….

Route of Sea(Path 65-Rescue Mission Part One)

September 25, 2009

Upon reaching the spot, they saw the soldier was fighting against a fallen angel. His wings were launching numerous slash waves towards her, causing her to suffer from severe injuries. They quickly came to the rescue and blocked the slash waves. Creise healed her and had her sealed in a spherical seal.
“Torturing in such a vicious way…you are more demonic than any demon that I’ve fought before!” Serene charged her blade guns with bolt aura and launched a few encased bolt strike towards him. He blocked them using his wings but he was injured when Fyen shot a few projectile bullets towards him through the air. Nastra attempted to punch his back but he straightened his wings, charged himself with wind and sky auras and spun himself. Nastra was slashed a few times and thrown 20 meters away. An underwater tornado was formed. Wind blades were launched everywhere, even the ones on the island could see a whirlwind was formed on the surface of the sea.
“This is…too powerful…for us…but I…must…destroy it….” Creise cast barrier on everyone as a protection. She charged her khérista with metal aura and launched a few crescent slash waves towards him, but they were deflected away by the wind blades. After a few minutes, the tornado was stopped. Kairos reversed the barrels of his cannons, charged them with photons and shot a pair of laser blasts on the fallen angel but he blocked them using his wings. The wings were damaged, but they were recovered quickly.
“You can’t do anything on me!” He charged himself with metal aura and launched some metal feathers towards them, but they were all deflected away when Serene and Fyen shot the bullets towards them. Waryl dashed to his back and attempted to cross slash him but he flapped his wings and he was hit. Waryl dashed backwards and launched a few plus shaped slash waves towards him, but they were deflected away as the metal feathers were launched frontwards and backwards.
“Take this!” Serene charged her bullets with acid aura and shot a few encased acid bullets indirectly towards him. He blocked it using his wings and they ended up corroded. Waryl quickly charged his sword with metal aura and launched some slash waves towards him while dashing towards him. His wings were broken when he blocked the slash waves. Waryl cross slashed him and he was injured.
“Here shall be your grave,” Fyen charged her gun with rock and astro auras. She shot a projectile meteor shot towards the air. Then, the shot fell into the sea and pierced through his body. He was turned into dusts.
“Good job, folks. Looks like you are quite strong. Who are you actually?” The soldier asked everyone.
“My name is Serene Foltaf, the chosen one for the holy weapon. The others accompany me to help in my misson,” Serene introduced herself.
“What? You are the chosen one? Well, I heard some rumors that the cave which stores the third holy item is past the next island at the East. Hopefully this will help. Good luck on your mission!” She continued to swim around the island, doing her patrolling job. A few seconds later, another scream was heard 2 kilometers north from them. Kiarsk, a huge sized pirhana which is another minion of demon lord, attacked another soldier who was patrolling in the sea.
“Let’s go and check it out!” Serene yelled the others. They quickly swam to the north and they were shocked by what they saw.
“This guy was bitten a few times and still fighting? We must help him at once!” Serene charged her gun, preparing for an attack. The fight will be quite hard….

Route of Sea(Path 64-First Contact)

September 24, 2009

After the night, they arrived at Sta Island. It was a very narrow island, covered with entirely frost wastelands. There were no inhabitants in the island, just some small number of temporary reinforcers from the Lefrad council who patrol the area to prevent any illegal activities around the area. They docked at the southern end of the island, waiting for several people to come towards them.
“This place looks quite deserted,” Serene and the others who were still underwater told everyone. A few minutes later, a few officers wearing military uniforms approached towards the ship. There were lots of marks on the shoulder, showing that they were highly ranked.
“We are from the Lefrad council’s military division. We heard rumors that there are demons lurking around here as we have lost several men in this island. All of them were killed underwater and their dead bodies were thrown onto the land. I hoped that you’ll find those demons as soon as possible. We are depending on you,” They left the ship after they told them the current situation.
“Those Phlaq continent scums….” Marsei clenched his fists.
“Calm down. They might give us some hints about the demons. I heard rumors that they were retreating,” Wrenfa calmed him. At the seabed,
“Hmm…I just wondered why we were called here. Isn’t that it is a restricted zone?” Serene asked everyone.
“I think the demons invaded this island so they need our help,” Kairos rubbed his head. The others were looking around the area to see if there is anything in the area. Then, they saw a soldier was swimming around them, searching for something.
“Hey, be careful while you are in the sea. There were a few soldiers who was dead lately because of the work of demons,” She warned them.
“We’ll kill them if we see them!” Serene smiled wickedly. Suddenly, a dark portal appeared. Trinphel, a stinger who sided the demons appeared. She was emitting intense evil aura. Her nerubius (pure gold on all parts) sword and Niceqil (an alloy made from one third of copper, one third of gold and one third of sliver) armor looked very sturdy. She charged her sword, but Nastra quickly punched her sword with his left hand while punching her body using his right hand, but she shot the slash waves and he was injured, forcing him to dash away from her.
“I’m not an easy target!” She charged her sword with flame aura and stabbed the ground.
“Heat stab waves…fool,” Creise teleported towards her top and attempted to attack her from above, but she was still hit by the stab waves launched below her legs. She was shocked that it was a magnarid skill rather than an ignalial skill. Creise dashed away from her. She seemed to be waiting for them to attack.
“What about this?” Waryl charged his sword and threw a sword shaped barrier piece towards her, but she destroyed it by launching a few slash waves towards it. Kairos charged his cannons with ice aura and launched a few freezing waves towards her, but she repelled it by casting barrier on herself. Fyen took the chance and shot a few rotating screw bullets towards her, but they were blocked as well. Serene teleported to her back, charged her blade guns with photons and attempted to stab her. Her barrier was shattered, but she was unharmed as the blade gun was unable to stab through her armor.
“Insolent fools…I’ll finish you another time,” She teleported herself away. They felt worried about her strength. Suddenly, a scream was heard somewhere nearby. They quickly dashed towards the source of the scream. Looks like they will face another demon….

Route of Sea(Path 63-The Second Cross)

September 22, 2009

A few hours later, they arrived in the cave. There were no tunnels, only lots of stalactites and stalagmites made from basalt rocks and an altar facing southwards. A gunner was guarding the altar, waiting for the chosen one to approach her. Her cowboy clothing made her looks like a mariner rather than a saint. Suddenly, the cross flew out from Serene’s dimensional storage towards her.
“Now I see. The chosen one is there,” Serene was teleported to the realm of saint along with her. This time, they appeared on a shallow sea area, which the sea level was just above their heads. “Fight me,” She took out her salamander gun and shot a few bullets towards Serene. Serene deflected them away by shooting bullets precisely towards them. She dashed towards her, attempting to slash her from near range, but a barrier repelled her attack.
“This can’t be…or this test only permits me to attack from long range, I guess,” She dashed away from her and changed her cartridges with sword bullet cartridges. She charged the bullets with photons and shot a few laser coated sword bullets towards her, but they were deflected away by some screw bullet shots from the cowboy’s gun.
“You are not defeating me,” She charged her gun with rock aura and aimed her gun out from the water. She shot a few bullets to the sky and small sized rocks fell from the skies, forcing both of them to dodge the falling rocks. Serene suddenly smiled wickedly.
“You have fallen onto your trap you set yourself,” Serene let a few rocks stuck inside the blade guns, charged them with photons and launched them towards her. Her barrier was slightly cracked, but it was recovered instantly. Serene was surprised looking at the recovery.
“Looks like I have to send you back to square one right now,” She charged her barrier with frost aura and shot Serene a freezing beam as large as her barrier.
“Oh really? Don’t regret if I do this,” Serene absorbed the beam into her blade guns, causing her hands was slightly freezing. Serene dashed towards her, trying to utilize the time used by her to charge such enormous amount of aura. Serene managed to cross slash the barrier, rendering it frozen, sufficiently covering her body from the beam. The freezing beam was launched again, but Serene quickly charged her blades with flame aura. Heat waves covered the blades. Just the moment Serene attempted to cross slash the barrier again; she cast rainbow beam deflection on the laser beam and shot it backwards. The laser beam “jumped” towards her in a rainbow formation. Serene was forced to block it using the blade guns.
“Your resistance is futile,” She charged herself with star aura and shot a few frost stars towards Serene. Serene jumped backwards and launched a few heat waves to melt them.
“Don’t force me to do this,” Serene charged her blade guns with flame and sun auras. The blades were glowing with bright light. The cowboy charged her barrier with frost aura again and shot the freezing beam again. This time, Serene launched the blades towards the barrier while dodging the beam and it was shattered into pieces.
“You’ve won,” Serene was teleported back towards the altar. The second cross appeared in front of her, shining with holy light. She took it and kept it into her dimensional storage. They were teleported away back to the seabed and the cave was disappeared.
“Perhaps the gods created the cave for us, I must say,” Waryl sighed. A few seconds later, the fishing ship appeared at their back.
“Hey! Where have you been? We must go to the Sta Island right now! Come with us quickly!” Marsei yelled at them. They quickly swam along with the ship. Their journey continues….

Route of Sea(Path 62-Aftermath)

September 21, 2009

A few minutes later, Khafen Enslo, the leader of the Mefino clan was waiting for everyone at the deck of the fishing ship. He was very angry because 200 ships were sunk just now.
“Hey boss, are you really wanted to do this? We can’t afford to break ties with any clans, you know,” One of his bodyguards told her.
“So, you are ‘the mafia’. I know it is our fault that 200 ships were sunken into the sea, but we are willing to pay any compensation to you,” Marsei told him.
“I’m sure we are glad that the demons were exterminated now,” Wrenfa tried to calm him.
“I bought them with my salary as my clan was suffered from bankruptcy back then. With the clan’s current financial status, I can but those ships again with ease, but it cannot ease my sadness and anger. I demand you to pay 15% of estimated loss from each of you. You are responsible over such damage,” Khafen looked at the remaining ships and the crews who were trying to find survivors.
“If this is the case, we will pay through our headquarters’ treasury. But what’s your next plan? I heard that you want to attack the Lhanaz clan. Is that true?” Marsei asked him.
“No. Those bugs were really good at spreading false rumors, despite we do have intend to teach them some lesson and we have did that already,” He smiled.
“What?” Wrenfa was shocked. Suddenly, a letter appeared on the desk. Khafen took it and read it. It wrote,
“Dear Khafen,

Our clan is very regretful for what have our members have done. Yet, such doings of vandalism over our ships is not a good way to resolve this. We consider such actions as a war declaration against us. If you do not issue an apology in 24 hours, we will destroy your headquarters near the western ocean.

Yours Truly,
Erpha Ksinal
Chief Commander of Lhanaz clan”
“Oh my goodness! Looks like they took this seriously,” He quickly took out a piece of paper and wrote,
“Dear Erpha,

If such actions of my subordinates are an insult and a war declaration, I am very sorry from the deep side of my soul. My clan has no such intends on your clan. Yet, I’m demanding your clan to pay our clan a sailing ship to compensate the damage of your members has caused on us. Hopefully you’ll complete this request.

Yours Truly,
Khafen Enslo
Leader of Mefino clan”
The letter was teleported to the headquarters of the Lhanaz clan. He sighed at the sunken ships, but suddenly all of the sunken ships were recovered, with the survived crews.
“I know the pain of having a fleet of ships was sunken, so we recovered them for you!” Kairos and Nastra yelled at Khafen.
“Get some rest, will ya? Your body can’t handle 200 ships, you know,” He threw some stamina potions towards them. They dranked the potions and had some nap under the sea.
“You know what that mean, right?” Khafen told Marsei and Wrenfa. They both laughed together. “Thanks for the help. As a token of thanks, this is a pair of titanium rings left by my last leader. I’m waiting for you to be engaged!” Khafen teleported himself away, along with the ships. Suddenly, Serene received a letter from Khafen. It wrote,
“Dear Serene,

I heard some rumors that a holy item was stored in a cave 2 kilometers west of here. Consider this a token of thanks from me. Hopefully this will help you on your mission.

Regards,
Khafen Enslo
Leader of Mefino clan”
“Let’s go. We have some main mission to do. We’ll meet up with them later,” Serene told the others and they swam to the west. Their main mission continues….

Route of Sea(Path 61-Demonic Strike)

September 20, 2009

The next morning, everyone stayed on the ships looking if the demons appeared anywhere while Serene and her friends were scouting under the sea, fearing that if the demons will come from the seabed.
“Be careful. We won’t know how much enemies you will have to deal with until they appear,” Serene warned everyone. Suddenly, a dark portal appeared on the seabed and emits a few encased bolt strikes on the ships above them. The ships sunk into the sea. More dark portals appear and did the same thing.
“Can’t we try to locate where the demon that did this is?” Kairos asked everyone while they were dodging the sinking ships.
“Let’s see….” Serene dashed around the sinking ships and saw a dark portal which was not disappearing. She charged the blades with photons and shot a few sword shaped laser beams towards it. Smokes appeared and the other dark portals were disappeared.
“Damn you….” Kronefa, a skeleton reaper emerged from the dark portal. The skull was visible under the dark purple cape. The scythe had a solid blade, rather than usual design of plate blades. It launched a few slash waves towards her but she deflected them by shooting a few bullets towards the slash waves. The slash waves hit some other ships and they were sunk as well.
“Looks like this is a hard one, I must say,” Serene charged her blades with photons and shot another few sword shaped laser beams towards it but they were deflected away by it scythe. It dashed towards her, trying to slash her but she blocked it using the gun at her left hand and stabbed it with the one at the right hand. Yet, it was unharmed and the blade was cracked instead.
“My bones are not human bones, but made from Kysphenir (an alloy made from 50% palladium, 15% platinum, 15% chromium and 20% vanadium). Don’t ever think about destroying me,” She was kicked a few times and she was thrown 10 meters away. Kronefa charged its scythe and threw it towards her, but she caught it without getting hit. She attempted to throw it towards Kronefa back, but suddenly it was filled with bolt aura and she was electrocuted.
“That skeleton reaper can charge aura remotely?” She threw it back towards her, ignoring the pain and shot a few slash waves from his gun while healing herself. It quickly dodged them but Serene teleported herself to its back and backstabbed it after she charged the blade guns with metal aura. Yet, it was still unharmed.
“Ha, that stinking blade of yours can do me anything bad!”  It swung its scythe backwards and she was slashed. She dashed away from it and healed herself. Creise who saw the battle swam towards her.
“She is not alone, you know,” Creise charged her khérista and launched a few circular shaped slash waves towards it. They were all deflected away, sinking a few more ships. Creise charged her khérista and dashed towards her, hoping that the weapon is strong enough to destroy the bones.
“That is not sufficient, you know,” Kronefa charged its scythe with metal aura and stabbed the ground. A platinum spear appeared in front of it. Kronefa took the spear and threw it towards her. She dodged it and cross slashed her but the blades were crushed instead. She dashed backwards and recovered her weapon. Suddenly,
“Take this!” Nastra attack from its back, using his knuckles charged with acid aura and punched its back. His knuckles were bent, but shockwaves formed by the punches crushed it and it was turned into dusts.
“Thanks a lot, pal!” Serene winked at him. The battle is over, but something bad is going to happen….

Route of Sea(Path 60-The Love of Peace)

September 19, 2009

The cabin was empty. The walls were white with a fluorescent lamp switched on.  Marsei and Wrenfa were sitting on the floor near a corner.
“Wrenfa, will the souls of the past leaders forgive us for what we have done? The last leader gave me the last word before leaving the clan, saying that ‘the war must not be stopped,’” Marsei sighed while looking at the small window on one of the walls. An unknown planet was visible. The stars were visible as well.
“Don’t worry; they won’t be able to haunt us anyway. I’m sure that they will understand our love,” Wrenfa was tidying his messy hair.
“Yeah, it is meaningless to have a war unresolved for 300 years. It’s time to put a full stop on it and create a better future of our clans, isn’t it?” Marsei gave her some shoulder massage.
“Well, but then, I just wondered, according to the rules, we can’t get married yet. We have to deal with the opposing voices in each other’s clan so that we can change the rules. Remember what happened in the past?” Wrenfa asked him.
“Yeah, my secret date with you was ruined by your bodyguards, saying that I’m trying to assassinate you and I ended up getting scolded by my subordinates. I remembered their furiousness when they said ‘you foolish one, how can you let your heart blind you from fight for the four principles of the Antria clan?’ to me,” Marsei answered her.
“I know. That is the last principle. Exterminate the Pharkof clan as if they are the demons. My clan has a similar principle. I just can’t imagine how such mindset can survive for 300 years,” Wrenfa stood up and walked around the cabin.
“Well, remember the first time we meet? Despite I’m attracted by your beauty, but my ships still bombarded yours and half of your fleet was destroyed at the price of two teams of my elite forces,” Marsei looked at her smooth straight hair.
“That was just when we looked at each other using binoculars. We met each other when you come to negotiate about your outpost which was destroyed by the members of our clan. You seemed to be not focused that time, perhaps due to my attraction, I must say,” Wrenfa was blushing.
“Oh, about that, perhaps your face gave me some sort of hallucination at that time. I don’t why I was not myself when we were negotiating. Maybe this is love,” Marsei lied on the ground.
“Yeah, love in the first sight. But then, remember when your bodyguard attempted to kill you I stopped them using this sword. I left that mark intact when I repair this sword. You know what I meant, right?” Marsei took out a stainless steel sword and threw it onto the ground. There was a right slanted slash mark on the sword’s blades. Wrenfa took the sword and looked at it. The phrases “for Wrenfa, my love” were barely visible below the slash mark. She wrote something below the phrase.
“That was quite a memorable one. Perhaps we will battle again sometime, I think. Hopefully this time our subordinates will not disturb us again,” Wrenfa looked at him and handed him the sword.
“Yeah. Remember that battle is considered a tie so we will have to settle the score again,” He looked at the phrase and saw “by Marsei, Wrenfa’s love” was written below the phrases. He blushed and stood up, facing a red door. “Let’s work on the peace so that it will last forever,” He walked out from the door, leaving Wrenfa alone.
“Peace? Or love? Perhaps both,” Wrenfa slept inside the room. Tomorrow will be a very hard day for everyone….
