The desert heat was no longer a problem to Xandra and Flay.
The two rode the Unicorn, who managed to carry them with ease. The leaves the pair used as umbrellas provided great shade for them. And along the way, Flay found plants and cactuses and began to gather water and plant essence to rejuvenate and protect everyone from the wild battles they had.
They continued to hurry to the path where Xandra saw the slime colony was. Without knowing what state the Grass Land was in, the two decided strengthening Kairo was a top priority.
Flay and Xandra began to talk more about their power along the way, and Flay continued to list out the possibilities that Kairo pointed out. But Flay presented these facts as wild theories.
“So you think that ev
The Unicorn continued to move in the desert. Vultures would often see it and fly above the sky to watch it, but the Unicorn didn’t seem to be exhausted as it continued to strut at full speed despite carrying two people riding it.“We’re almost there.” Xandra finally spoke. It had been nearly an hour that she didn’t talk. She was doing her best to calm down.As they rose and down the dunes, Flay could finally see the end of the Desert Lands. The Grass Lands could be seen on the distant horizon.Flay could not help but give a huge sigh.“And here I thought I’d be stuck in the Desert Lands for days and would hop from one Oasis to the next…” Flay smiled.Xandra leaped of Dara and began to look around.“It was just around this area. The sand dunes an
Kairo had finally completed absorbing all the water Slimes inside the colony. Kairo’s form was now three times bigger than what it once was.Xandra was still asleep together with Dara. The two were cuddling comfortably and caused Flay to look at them as Xandra looked so angelic as she slept comfortably and used Dara’s soft mane as a pillow.Flay had created another small fire and had been putting his hand in it, secretly absorbing more fire energy and hiding it from Xandra or Dara’s sight.Flay kept being on guard as he waited for Kairo to complete his fusion and the process of Mitosis to create a new slime.Soon, Kairo had managed to divide itself into two equal parts. The first was the green slime that was Kairo’s original form. But next to it was a light blue slime.Kairo began to walk around and tried to
Unknown to Flay, the Pteranodon was not an ordinary evolved beast. Instead, it had tremendous intelligence, and so did the Midnight Panther.The Midnight Panther was a very protective beast and had respected the Homeostasis of the land. It knew where they should hunt and where they should not hunt. They knew not to attack the Grass Lands in fear of the great Harass. If the Harass sensed a threat in the balance of their world, the Pegasus would gallop across the skies and attack the threat.Finally, the Pteranodon appeared over its forest. Its powers were too much, and dread and fear fell into the Midnight Panther’s heart as he knew that his entire family would be devoured.The Pteranodon was so powerful that the Midnight Panther began to plead with the Pteranodon. At first, the Pteranodon chased the Midnight Panther as it was enraged that it ate the slime. But as both groups beg
Flay and Xandra finally reached the familiar region of the Grasslands. To the northeastern direction would be the camp of the Tamers, where they made as their base to hunt the nearby regions.Flay never thought he would ever return here ever since he woke up in the lair of the Pteranodon. However, his emotions were bottling up as she realized that he was finally back.“I can’t believe I’m back.” Flay smiled.“Me too! I still can’t believe we went through that. And I can’t imagine what you’ve been through, Flay.”“We’ll talk about it when we have time. Xandra, where did the Might Wolves chase you?”“Elrik claimed he was scouting the outer perimeters near the cave as he heard some strange sounds. He told me that I would check for him near the brook down wes
Flay was so angry, and it was creating a devastating weight of killing intent that the Unicorn was so scared it dared not move a muscle.Xandra was overcome with horror as she had held the arm close and realized a little too late what she had seen. She kept puking and puking.“This room! This accursed room! What did that Warlock do?!” Flay roared angrily.“Master! The Unicorn! It’ll faint if you release any more. Now is the time to act not in anger but in caution. Protect Xandra and help her. She seemed to have recognized the hand.”Flay was awakened from his anger at Kairo’s words.Flay turned around and held Xandra, who was still on her fours and continued to puke.“Xandra…?”“My uncle… This is my uncle’
Flay and Xandra moved as fast as they could.Flay could hear battles going all over the place as more and more Panthers were trying to attack the Grasslands.“A territorial battle? But at least this is good. The Might Wolves can’t afford another predator in these lands, and it seems the Night Panther is trying to establish a territory here…” Xandra answered after she heard Flay report about the odd events and actions of the Night Panther.“At least it’s giving us clearance to move. The faster we get to camp, the better.” Flay continued to gaze straight towards the direction of the camp.The journey went on, and this time, Xandra didn’t say anything since Flay was concentrating on listening for possible attacks. This silence gave Flay the time to think. And the more he thought, the angrier he got. Oftentimes as
The entire camp was surprised at the report. They had lost all hope at the disappearance of Xandra and, with it, the many prospects of saving the village.Several lone towers were erected at the different spots around the place where they had taken camp. The first tamer who saw the approaching Unicorn was curious, and as he used his scopes to take a closer look, he confirmed that it was a unicorn but could not discern the rider.He sent for the fastest flier, and Dirk took flight.Flay had seen Dirk approach and waved back.Dirk then flew back to report the joyous news.Nobody believed it at first but then, those tamers assigned to stay at the tower and to scout the area gave similar reports.“Xandra is riding a Unicorn?!” The Master of the Hunt, Glum exclaimed. He was a tall and burly man wit
The shocking turn of events stunned everyone, silent. Why did Xandra give Elrik, who she treated like a close friend, a sudden powerful punch?The Cavern Komodo roared angrily, and it moved forward, but then the Unicorn stood in front of it, and it was glowing with powerful magic.It glared at the Cavern Komodo and caused it to stop in its advance.“Xandra… Why?”“Why? I stopped Flay from talking so that I could talk myself. You see, not long ago, I also blamed him for everything. I was so stupid back then. Flay’s countered my accusations with that same logic when I tried to kill him after he rescued me.”Xandra began.“Tried to kill him?” Petra was amazed.“He managed to calm me down and laid out everything he just said.
