Route of Earth(Path 41-Hollow Take On)

January 31, 2010

“You hollows are a disgrace of all of us!” A pink hollow suddenly appeared and teleported the wall away. She took out a pink colored water crystal wand. Then, she charged her wand with fire aura. “Go and call you boss. This asshole is a tough one,” She called the guild workers and they quickly ran inside the guild, which was a wooden shop house.
“Oh no you don’t,” The teal hollow charged itself with rock aura and launched rock spikes on them, yet they were blocked by random fireballs appearing in the air.
“I am ashamed that lots of hollows has derailed to their demonic paths,” She charged them with more fire aura and cast fire astraea on the teal hollow. A magic circle appeared on its legs and above its head. Helical fire beams were spinning out from the magic circle, thrusting through its body, but they were absorbed as fire aura instead.
“You are a heretic!” It took out a shotgun, flowed the fire aura inside the bullets and shot the bullets on the pink hollow. It merely blocked them using her wand, but the wand was slowly turning into steam, yet the steam seemed to be encased.
“Because of that moron? It is merely a leader, not a god!” It changed its wand into an encased steam wand, charged it with steam aura and formed steam mist around the teal hollow, yet it was unharmed and absorbed the steam mist into his shot gun’s bullets and shot them back to it.
“Hollows are demonic in nature. We are following the nature’s law!” The teal hollow switched to a marble bladed titanium sword and dashed towards it while charging it with steam aura. Upon reaching close, he stabbed it on the ground and steam was emitted before he swung it upwards, breaking the encasing and freed the steam. It was slashed as well and thrown upwards.
“Nature? Even lots of demons are opposing the current demon lord, is this unnatural? Why nature can’t be good? I think you won’t be answering all of this,” The pink hollow accidentally kicked the teal hollow’s head and threw it onto the ground, with the feet stepping on its neck. It quickly teleported itself to the pink hollow’s back and attempted to cross slash it, yet it jumped backwards, took out a new wand, charged it with light aura and threw it as if a lance. Light balls surrounded its handle as if it was wrapped in a polka dot gift paper. It was hit and turned into dusts. After 10 minutes, the workers appeared again along with a man with goat-like beard and sword blade shaped eyebrows.
“Who are you actually? Why a hollow like you protect us?” He sighed while looking at her, felling its figure reminiscent to someone he knew in the past.
“I can’t let my loved one’s precious things destroyed, you know. After all, hollows has derailed from their true paths and I will not become one of them, Ankhial (silent k pronunciation) Varos,” It looked at him.
“I see, Ceia (pronounced as sea-ya) Les. Welcome back, my dear,” He walked towards her and tried to hug her, but suddenly a knight wearing Kevlar suit dropped from the sky, attempting to slash it, but it quickly jumped away and Ankhial took out his sword and blocked his attack. “Hold your horses, fighter. She just fended off against a hollow which wants to destroy my guild. I know you are renowned as Kotiva’s demon slayer, but not all demons are evil, even the exiled demon princes,” He told the fighter in an informing tone.
“I see…looks like we have good allies. So, we have to wait for them to fight against the demon in that capital. Hopefully the armies can hold them off. I’ll go and slay other demons,” The fighter teleported himself away.
“Eclash (pronounced as ek-lush) Wark, you are just as reckless as usual,” He looked at the sky. At the meantime, Tefia and the others are fighting other demons….

Route of Earth(Path 40-Catch Up Strike Part Four)

January 29, 2010

At the meantime, Rafion and Kasim were chasing the only remaining demon. After 15 minutes, they found a jiang shi hopping away from them. Then, they took out their spears and threw them while charging them with fire aura. The jiang shi noticed the attack and turned around knocking the spears away.
“A stiff corpse, huh? I guess magic is the only option here,” Rafion took out his amoultz wand (wand with axe blades attached beside and having jade attached on its tip), charged it with fire aura and cast fire sphere on the jiang shi. It was trapped inside a fire ball, but it hopped out of the fire ball towards them.
“Yes, but maybe yin yang magic will make things short of it,” Kasim took out a bronze coin dagger and ran towards it. It hopped higher and stepped his shoulder, but Rafion charged his wand with wind aura and threw it towards the jiang shi. It was spinning with spirals of wind surrounding it. The attack hit and the jiang shi was pushed back 20 meters while his wand was thrown back to him.
“…” It hopped to its front while charging itself with vacuum aura. Vacuum surrounded them, making them unable to breath, but they quickly charged themselves with wind aura and cancelled the spell.
“You think this really works? Now see this!” Kasim dashed towards it and plus slashed the jiang shi. Fire sparks were emitted, showing the it was wounded, yet it quickly choked his neck and reached him, attempting to bite him.
“Let go of my friend!” Rafion cast magnetic separation on them and they were broke off. Then, he cancelled the spell while charging his wand with acid aura. Then, he threw it in a projectile motion. It hopped to its front while dodging the attack, but hydrochloric acid was splashed everywhere upon hitting the ground, dealing corrosion damage on the jiang shi.
“…” It healed itself while continued to hop towards them. This time, it charged itself with ice aura and ice needles rained on them. They quickly changed it into normal rain by charging fire aura on the needles.
“This is it!” Kasim charged his dagger with electric aura and attached it on his right shoe. Just when it came close, he kicked it by swinging his legs downwards, slashing it. It was electrocuted and turned into dusts.
“Let’s wait for them. They are too beautiful to be left alone,” Rafion was discharging his aura. Kasim followed suit as well. After 2 hours, Beile came to them while Serina met up with them 30 minutes later.
“I guess the threat is finally over, eh?” Serina asked Rafion.
“Not really, but at least we won’t need to rush like what we did before,” Rafion answered her gladly.
“Yeah, like we have nothing to do. Let’s go. We have a guild to be saved,” Beile walked along the tunnel and the others quickly caught up with her before they started to run. At the meantime, in Zorn,
“Phew, this is the longest day in my life,” A guild worker was sighing while drinking energy potions.
“Yeah, hopefully they eliminated the demon’s reinforces,” Another guild worker was repairing his damaged weapons. But after 10 minutes, a teal hollow showed itself and took out a water crystal rapier.
“They have killed my subordinates, but they never noticed me at all. It might be hard to take you down, but it will eventually done,” It taunted them and they quickly stood up and rushed towards the hollow. The hollow merely stood there while charging itself with rock aura. They hit a stone wall appeared from nowhere and they were squashed when the wall fell over them. There will be someone to save the day….

Route of Earth(Path 39-Catch Up Strike Part Three)

January 29, 2010

After one day, Beile and the others were near with the demons. Then, a skeleton threw a flash bang on them. They quickly stopped and turned around, preventing the flashing effect getting on them.
“I shall drag you down and force you to fight us!” Beile took out a chain whip and threw it on the skeleton and it was tripped down.
“Go on! I’ll fight them off!” It shouted while broke the whip using break spell and stood up. It took out a bone sword and ran towards them. The sword was made totally out of bones, but painted as if it was a stainless steel sword.
“Just chase that demon! I’ll slay this demon!” Beile took out her arsudia (double esquadria lance without the handles and the missiles are launched by mind control and the blades were replaced by spear pikes) and launched a few missiles on it. It was hit and knocked the tunnel’s wall. Rafion and Kasim ran past the skeleton, leaving Beile fighting against it alone.
“How noble. I guess this is why humans are so foolish!” The skeleton charged its sword with metal aura and stabbed it onto the ground. Pyramidal metal spiked dropped from the tunnel’s ceiling, which she were only able to block by spinning her arsudia above her head.
“Everyone is as fool here,” She shot a few more missiles which launched their pikes on it midair. The skeleton blocked the pikes, but the missiles were exploded upon blocking and its sword was cracked.
“Tch…this is nothing but something normal,” It charged its sword with more metal aura and it was recovered. Then, the side blades rotating by the edges while they slid slightly front. The skeleton dashed to its front while holding its sword as if it was a drill lance (lance with its tip replaced by a drill).
“Yes, normal,” Beile pointed her arsudia downwards before swinging it upwards when the sword came close while shooting a few missiles on the skeleton. The sword was thrown away and it was thrown 15 meters away, but the sword quickly covered under dark aura, a crow “formed” and accelerated itself towards her.
“But this is not!” It quickly stood up, teleported itself to her back and punched her shoulders simultaneously. She was pushed 5 meters to her front and the crow thrust through her, with the crow still “alive” when it held its sword.
“Yeah…and I can feel new powers within me,” She charged her arsudia with dark aura flowed into her body during the crow’s attack and shot a few missiles on it, which emitted dark beams upon the missiles’ pikes stabbed through the skeleton. It was injured, despite it was dark elemental.
“This is…impossible!” The crow on its sword disappeared while the side blades returned back to its original positions. Then, it charged itself with poison, wind and water auras. “Poison mist!” It cast the spell and purple mists were blown towards Beile.
“This?” She merely walked past the mist without getting poisoned at all and stared at the skeleton, waiting for it to launch its new attack. Then, she pointed her arsudia on it, preparing to counter any attacks directed on her.
“Yes,” The mists turned into poison liquid crystals and moved backwards on her while the skeleton dashed towards her while forming a larger crow. She only walked towards it and even smile when it got close and spun her arsudia along her waist, turning it into dusts. The liquid crystals were disappeared without getting close with her. She quickly healed herself and ran along the tunnel. She might found something not amusing later on….

Route of Earth(Path 38-Ctach Up Strike Part Two)

January 27, 2010

The wolf sensed their movements and it turned around. After running for a few meters it leaped on them quickly, attempting to destroy their armors, but the attack was too weak that they managed to keep their grip on their spears and stabbed it right on its stomach. It quickly teleported itself away and healed itself.
“I guess this beast is really this powerful. Evil hearts give strength in expense of soul…how pathetic,” They dashed to their front while charging their spears with fire aura. The spears’ tips were covered in barely noticeable burning flames.
“Let me aid you. We are in the same side,” Beile took out her axe staff, charged it with ice aura and cast frozen slash on the wolf. An axe blade made out from ice was “launched” from the staff in projectile motion. It ran towards them and leaped upon reaching close.
“….” They strafed away from each other while pointing their spears to each other. The wolf charged itself with photons and laser blades extended horizontally from its legs. The attack was strong enough to knock them down onto the ground.
“Reverse reflect!” Beile quickly cast the spell on her ice axe blade and it moved back on the wolf upon hitting the ground. It quickly jumped, bit the blade, charged it with ice aura and threw it on them. The blade was enlarged, sufficient to hit both of them.
“This damned wolf…I’ll slay you!” They quickly woke up, charged their spears with fire aura and the ice was melted into water upon closing to them. Then, they stabbed the ground and two rotating fire pillar struck up from the ground and moved towards the wolf.
“This is unforgivable!” The wolf charged itself with ice aura and ran past the fire pillar without any damage and accelerated when it passed through. It was too fast that their feet were slashed badly by the laser blades.
“You seemed to be forgetting me,” Beile threw her axe staff to the wolf, with the staff rotating. The wolf was hit, but it quickly teleported itself to her back the split second it was hit and turned around, slashing he feet.
“You…we must not give up this easily,” They healed themselves and teleported the fire pillars right to in front of the wolf, making it burned in the flames while avoiding injury to Beile. She quickly dashed backwards to them and healed herself.
“I will not as well!” It healed itself after the attack ended and dashed towards them with even higher speed, yet Beile charged her staff with metal aura and formed a platinum cube, which it smashed and the laser blades were disappeared upon crashing.
“Let’s just say that I’m never hesitate doing this,” Beile charged the platinum cube with electric aura and it was electrocuted, paralyzing it. They quickly jumped past the cube and threw their spears, piercing its body and turned it into dusts.
“Now this is what we call victory. Let’s chase the remaining demons,” They continued to run along with the tunnel and Beile quickly followed them. While they are on their way,
“Well, you can tell me about your identity now,” Beile told them.
“We are actually freelance fighters, who never work under a guild. I’m Rafion Kinard while he is Kasim Ranod,” The guy with transparent eye patches answered her. At the meantime,
“Damn…the wolf is defeated,” A skeleton was shouting at a jiang shi.
“Let’s move faster. We must reach there before their reinforcements come!” It answered the skeleton while hopping faster. The skeleton quickly fastened its steps. They will be caught up later….

Route of Earth(Path 37-Catch Up Strike Part One)

January 26, 2010

Serina and Beile arrived at Kinara village. It was a village with low population that the scattered houses were far away from each other. The village chief’s house was located at center and it was slightly bigger than rest of the houses. They searched the village and found no one was outside the houses. Then, Serina saw a house with a glass mug sign hanging besides it.
“Maybe the demons were hanging around this place to have some rest. Let’s raid the place,” She called Beile and they went inside. The bar was empty except that there were a few workers along with the bartender. Then, two guys went inside and took out their constantan spears. They were wearing clothes made from linen and titanium threads, making them looked gray. One of them was wearing a pair of transparent eye patch while the other was wearing a large spectacle, both were a rarity for people in Lefrad.
“Who are you?” They shouted at Serina and Beile. “I saw suspicious looking figures yesterday. Where are your other partners?”
“Sorry, but we come here by ourselves and…sorry, you are tracking the demons as well. I guess we better spread out and find them before it is too late,” Serina looked down onto the ground before looking at them again. Then, an explosion occurred north from them.
“Those filthy demons! You will not escape!” The guys teleported themselves to the tunnel leading northwards and they were shocked that they were trying to destroy the seals. A crow flew towards them while emitting laser beams from its beak. They jumped past the laser beams and threw the spears on the remaining demons, but the seal was shattered and the demons ran into the tunnel.
“Chase them!” I’ll handle this on my own!” Beile took out her axe staff, charged it with ice and metal auras, and cast icy metal magnarid on the crow. The others quickly ran inside the tunnel, trying to chase the demons.
“How noble, but foolish!” It charged its claw and launched a few slash waves on a magic circle formed slightly below it. The magic circle was shattered and the spell was prevented from being cast.
“I guess formation based magic is useless on you,” She cast icy metal on it and metal darts covered under a 5 millimeter think ice were launched randomly on the crow. The ice covering the darts shattered into pieces upon stabbing slightly inside its body, making the darts dealing double damage on it.
“This is…impossible…but never…mind…I’ll…still…crush you….” Its wings were injured beyond healing but it managed to heal the rest of its body. Then, it charged its claws with rock aura and the ground moved as if the earth was water. Beile flew upwards, charged her staff with light aura and threw it on the crow. A lark was “formed” and disappeared a few seconds after the staff stabbed through its body. It charged itself with wind aura and the staff was launched back to her in double speed. Beile’s right shoulder was cut.
“This is…so powerful…but this…is not…my demise…but yours!” She charged herself with posion aura and cast poisonous revenge on the crow. The wound was transferred to the crow and poison was flowed inside its body. Split second before she hit the ground, it was turned into dusts and the ground was restored to normal. She stood up, healed her wounds and ran inside the tunnel. At the meantime,
“Who are you two? Which guild are you from?” Serina asked the guys.
“I think we better take care of this damn wolf first,” They pointed their spears at a orange fur wolf, readying to threw them on it. The battle will not be done together….

Route of Earth(Path 36-Blocked)

January 26, 2010

After a few minutes, Ancrast and Weiloe saw a bat “trapped” inside a magic circle acting as a seal. Upon seeing them, it charged itself with dark aura and emitted a few dark beams on them, which they dodged.
“As I expected, but looks like they are getting stronger,” Weiloe charged her sciorts and shot a few slash waves from the blades attached on the missiles before launching them separately. The blades and the missiles were blocked by the seal, but the explosion damage the bat.
“Then, let’s prove to them that we are stronger,” He took out his platinum mace and launched the spiked ball. This time, the spiked ball was connected to the mace’s handle by a magnalium chain. The bat charged itself with metal aura and the attack was blocked by a one centimeter think brass.
“If this is what you have then you are not qualified to fight against me,” It charged the brass with wind aura and it started spinning while moved towards them. Ancrast pulled back the spiked ball, charged it with metal aura and rushed to his front, attempting to knock it back, but it was stopped instead. Weiloe charged her legs with wind aura and kicked it. It moved back towards the bat but the bat teleported it away before it damage the bat by crashing.
“This is our qualification attack,” Ancrast charged the metal spikes with photons and launched them and laser beams were emitted on the bat. Then, he dashed to his front while charging the metal ball with fire aura and the metal ball was burning, as if it was a torch.
“Don’t ignore me, Ancrast,” Weiloe charged herself with fire and non-elemental auras. She cast burning barrier on Ancrast and a skin tight barrier was formed surrounding him. The flames were burning brightly on the barrier’s outer surface, as if his body was soaked with ethanol and burned.
“Now this is what I call qualified, but still, you are nothing but a lousy fighter,” The bat charged itself with water aura and water jets were launched from the seal randomly on him, but the flames were became larger instead while the laser beams were blocked. He slammed himself onto the seal and it was burned.
“Now try this,” Weiloe dashed towards them with her legs still charged with wind aura and kicked Ancrast. The bat was thrown off the burning seal and the seal was disappeared. The bat charged itself with ice aura and launched a few ice slash waves on them from its wings.
“Is this a joke or what?” Ancrast threw the mace towards it while charging it with electric aura. The mace emitted electric sparks from the surface of the spike ball except on the spikes. The slash waves became electrically charged instead. He blocked them using merely bare hands, but he was unharmed. The electric sparks electrocuted it and it was turned into dusts. After a few seconds, the bat was reformed and healed itself.
“Now this is no joke,” It charged its claws with wood aura and dashed towards them. Weiloe took out her magnalium sword, jumped and slashed its left wing. It was injured and fell onto the ground, but not before the claws covered with pine wood scratched his shoulders.
“Yeah, no joke, but this is no joke as well!” He took out a talon knuckle (a knuckle which is shaped like a talon), dashed towards the bat and punched it repeatedly until it was turned into dusts.
“You must be pissed off when your shoulders were damaged,” Weiloe healed his shoulders.
“Not really, but I’m more pissed off that it was able to revive once,” Ancrast took his mace and kept it into his dimensional storage. They continued to run along the tunnel. At the meantime, Serina and Beile were fighting against the demons attempting aid their allies….

Route of Earth(Path 35-Carriage Stealing)

January 24, 2010

After a few hours, they bumped up with a girl covered under a dark brown cloak, with a briefcase carried on her right hand. It was filled with metal blocks Serina and Beile transported earlier.
“Looks like we have another smuggler to capture,” Lefio took out his halberd and dashed towards her while charging it with fire aura. A lark was “formed” and he threw it to his front and kicked it. She took out a titanium sword and blocked it using its tip.
“I guess my plans are foiled, but none of you shall stop me!” She swung her sword and threw the halberd back to Lefio. Meltine took out her machetes and knocked it back to her while dashing towards her.
“None? Watch your words,” The halberd was blocked again using her sword’s tip, yet Meltine kicked it and the sword’s hilt hit her stomach, making her weakened before Orkaf teleported to her back and stabbed her using his doktionas.
“And you don’t know who are you dealing with,” Tefia took out her ifnarisis and launched the blades surrounding its ruby while charging it with rock aura. “Rock fizat!” Tefia cast the spell and rocks fell down randomly from a magic circle appeared on her head.
“Is this everything what you got?” She protected herself using a barrier while punching Orkaf using her elbows, launching punch waves on Meltine and kicked her sword towards Lefio. Both attack hit them hard and they were pushed 7 meters away.
“We only show our powers according to your level. Now you are showing your true level, huh?” Lefio strafed to his right, caught the halberd and charged it with ice aura and threw it back in projectile motion.
“This is unintentional, but this is your punishment for running what we have done,” Orkaf dashed towards her and kicked her upwards, letting the halberd thrust through her body and crash onto the ceiling, but she cast damage transfer and the ground was cracked instead while she was healed.
“Don’t try to cheat, you moron!” Meltine switched the hilts of her machetes into parang hilts and threw them upwards while she was falling down onto the ground. Then, Tefia teleported to her top and threw her ifnarisis downwards while charging it. A conical slash wave surrounded its tail blade.
“Well, this is still not sufficient to defeat me,” She teleported herself to Meltine’s back and kicked her upwards, but she managed to flex her body and barely dodged Tefia’s ifnarisis. Orkaf teleported to her right and launched his doktionas’s metal block at short range while charging its handle with metal aura.
“Then I’ll have to something more extreme,” A metal spike was formed, extending the handle. He dashed away a few meters and dashed back to her when she was busy dodging the metal block. She was stabbed at her stomach.
“This will teach her a very good lesson,” Tefia charged her ifnarisis, which was stabbed on the ground and a few slash waves were launched from her below. She was hit and fainted. Orkaf examined the briefcase she was holding earlier and found the metals they were escorting before. They quickly teleported them back to where they were from.
“Let’s keep going. It’s better to wait for others rather than having others waiting for us,” Tefia called the others. They sealed her before they continued their journey. At the meantime, in the descending tunnel,
“I have a bad feeling about this. The demons might try to retaliate against us,” Ancrast told Weiloe.
“Speaking of that, I sensed some dark aura in front of us,” Weiloe took out a pair of sciort (esquardria mounted on shoulder and its handle pointing downwards). Their fight will start….

Route of Earth(Path 34-Submerged)

January 23, 2010

While Serina and Beile were running in the slowly ascending tunnel, water suddenly flowed in the tunnel and the water level slowly rising. After a few minutes, the whole tunnel was filled in water and they were forced to use their rebreathers. A blue hollow was standing in front of them.
“You are not reaching your home guild!” It took out a revolver with conical water crystals and shot a few bullets on them. They merely strafed slowly to dodge them.
“Being submerged is not a problem!” Serina took out a pair of gragnast (larger revolver with ammunition capacity of 16 bullets) with round bullets and exchanged shots with it while Beile took out an axe staff (a staff with axe blade edges perpendicular with its handle) and threw it to the hollow while charging it with ice aura.
“Freeze!” Beile cast the spell when the hollow was stabbed. It was frozen under a layer of ice and the water became slightly colder. Beile dashed towards it, attempting to punch her staff but it quickly freed itself just in time and launched the ice shards, piercing her body.
“Take this,” It charged her staff with wind aura and launched it out from itself and Beile was stabbed instead. Serina charged her bullets with gravtions and shot them in projectile motion.
“Take that!” Serina ran to her front, taking Beile’s staff out while pointing her gun down onto the ground and stabbed it back. The hollow quickly charged it with poison aura and flowed the poison into her hand, poisoning her.
“What about this?” Beile recovered Serina from her poisoned condition and punched the staff. The staff thrust through the hollow, making a small hole on the spot where the staff thrust through.
“This is merely a scratch,” It switched to a pair of square shaped platinum shield and rammed the shield on them. They were pushed back 5 meters. Then, it threw the shields as if they were boomerangs and dashed towards them while wearing titanium gloves.
“Oh? Want something more powerful than this?” They charged their hands with non-elemental aura and drew a magic circle together. The shields went inside the magic circle and it was disappeared. Just when the hollow came close, the magic circle appeared again and the shields hit slashed through it instead.
“Ha, now let’s crank out more damage!” They charged themselves with rock aura and cast rock astraea on it. A magic circle appeared above it and on its legs each, launching a rock spike from each of them, piercing its body and turning it into dusts. The water level was slowly going down and eventually disappeared.
“Looks like our coworkers and bosses are in danger,” Serina drank a bottle of aura potion.
“Definitely,” Beile drank one too. Then, after a few seconds, a sound portal appeared.
“We are under attack, but don’t worry too much. Your job now is to prevent a few demons from aiding the ones attacking us. They are currently at your next town. We are counting on you,” An unknown voice was heard along with sounds of fighting, perhaps that the one who cast the sound portal spell was hiding from the demons to deliver the message.
“Let’s go,” They ran to their front. After one day, at the central tunnel,
“Is it possible that the smugglers bringing supplies for the demons at the west side of this country?” Meltine asked everyone.
“Definitely. In fact, the demons are now attacking Zorn for successfully delivering the metals with our aid. They must be getting angry for a revenge,” Lefio answered her. They will meet one soon….

Route of Earth(Path 33-Discussion)

January 22, 2010

Back to Tefia and the others,
“The king is pleased that the chosen one is coming to aid us. In fact, this is Lefrad’s crisis after all, isn’t it?” Ancio laughed a bit.
“I think we should wait for Ancrast and Weiloe for this. At least they will be good assets for this operation,” Tefia took the badge wore the badge on her chest.
“I see. So, I guess we better wait for now. Yeah, will you two join us?” Ancio pointed at the girls transporting the metals.
“Yes. I think we better introduce ourselves now. I’m Serina Krios and she is Beile (pronounced as bill) Lasom,” The girl with cowboy wear stood up while pointing at the girl wearing black robe.
“The courier girls, eh? Looks like this is really a big issue. This is Tefia Rypal, the chosen one. I think you know her since that she works as a transporter as well,” Meltine pointed at Tefia, who was looking at the surroundings.
“We know her very well. I’m glad that we are working in other countries or we will have some fierce competition going on. Anyone working for a transporting guild on the land in this continent knows her as one of the best transporter,” Beile stared sharply at Tefia.
“You two are far more famous than us. After all you two are considered veterans among the transportation guilds,” Tefia smirked at them.
“Hey, don’t ignore us, okay? I’m Orkaf Sinox, he is Lefio Kinaf and she is Meltine Phika. I think having a saint and a demon will make this much easier. I’m a miner after all,” Orkaf sighed while looking at the ceiling.
“Yeah, a miner with a personally customized mining axe. Don’t look yourself down too much,” Tefia snapped him out.
“Well, I guess you all know each other, right? Let’s go back to our discussion. As for now, I think we should split. Two will go to the lands, two will go below and the rest should go for the deep ground cities. What do you think?” Ancio pointed at the three tunnels leading northwards.
“We’ll go to the land. After all, who knows if our transportation guild will be attacked by demons because of our delivery?” Beile told everyone.
“You got a point. I guess we’ll have the deep ground path give to Ancrast and Weiloe. I’ll take the middle one,” Meltine did the same. After a few seconds, Ancrast and Weiloe suddenly appeared in front of them.
