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. An
Everyone couldn’t believe the series of reports that Xandra gave out. The Harass, the monster, the marriage, and now the slime tamer.Everyone began to look at Flay and the two small slimes standing on his shoulder.“A Slime Tamer?” One of the elites marveled at this.“Indeed! Tantalos members! Open your nose! What do you notice about the scent and aroma of Lady Xandra, Flay, and the Unicorn?”Some tamers approached and could smell it.“They smell like plants!""It's like a herb mixture!” One of the tamers approached Flay.“It’s thanks to this slime.” Flay pointed.“This slime that my love has named Kairo can absorb plant essences, and it was able to make a form of repellent. This is how
The Tamers were all stunned silent.Many were horrified, and even though Flay spoke, the horror and death of one tamed monster was a heinous crime!“You- killed my…!”“Yeah, I did. It was weak. But can we focus on the issue at hand? Or do I have to go out and kill another? A lot of you here bullied me after all.” Flay sneered, and many unconsciously took a step back.Was this the dud that they bullied? Was this the one who they called weak and useless?The slime was also interesting. It was as strong as a sword! Not only that, it was clear that one had the ability to grab hold and stick while the other was slippery. Others marveled at the display of skill that Flay performed.Xandra was also amazed and could not help but think about the magnificent and skillful ways that Fla
The Tamers began to murmur with each other from Flay’s report.The Pteranodon was classified as a Mid-E monster. It was slightly larger than a horse and couldn’t even beat a Pegasus.But the way Flay described it proved that it was a mutated form.“It kept on digging and digging and made a large hole at the top of a hill and dug its way to the underground lake where I found myself. And those thumps that I heard were it pecking the ground and digging into that mountain to create its lair. For some reason, the river that we saw had a strange effect that it could amplify sounds, and so, that sound so far away was being sent through the river and even passed all over the Grasslands!”Elrik couldn’t hide his horrified expression, but no one noticed as everyone had their eyes on Flay.“It was building
Flay and Xandra were walking right in the middle of the camp as if enjoying a little honeymoon. But in reality, they were talking in secret.“Can you hear what everyone is saying?”“No. I don’t have such power. I can hear better, but I have to focus actually to listen and understand. It’s like how you would hear people talk in the background, but it takes a lot of concentration to hear it when you are talking to someone. And there is also the issue of the sounds being overpowered by other sounds.”“But you heard the thump!”“I did, but we were moving back then. And we were being careful and quiet. No one was talking, so I heard it. And since I was paying attention to it, I kept hearing it. But in this scenario, I have to know who or where I am supposed to be listening to.”
