:"Does it scare you Summoner?"
I looked to the direction of the voice to find Venessa standing beside me.
Me:"Not at all"
Venessa:"...It should" She faced the coast line, not once giving me eye contact"
Me:" And why is that?" Look toward her
Venessa:" Because...we are going to be sailing right through it" Her eyes slowly closing.
Me:"WHAT! WHY?" Just the idea of getting near the tempest is a death sentence.
Venessa:" With the current couse of action, this would be the fastest way to travel."
Me:" So insted of taking the long route, you want to sling shot of the storm to the isles?"
Venessa simply shoock her head once.
Me:" But why don't we take the longer path?"
Venessa snapped her head toward me, her eyes open.
:" Because the longer you waste idealing around the larger the chance the someone along the line will get hurt...or..." Turning around from me
:"worse" Venessa stood in her place, her view back toward the horzian but speaking once more and walking away from me.
The words she spoke delived glimsp of a memory I only wish I could have washed away.
:"I wish you would have said something...back then"
I watched her walk away toward the deck of the docks. Probably going to insure out ship's status.
The words she spoke washed through me when I relized she had said something the confussed me. "You" as in me, not us, just me, I was wasting time? . This gave me a cold suspension that she had something planned.
I was invocked with the sky when I minded the others. I saw Annie and Ahri having a conversation but couldn't determin what it was about. Ezreal was chatting with Ashe, something about teasure or exploring I could only guess. Sona of the other hand was scanning the pier side, giving the adpearance she was searching for something.
Me":Hey" I pased over to her.
She raised her hand to greet me but didn't break her view.
Me:"...Are you looking for something? I can help if you are" Only guessing
She glaced up toward me for a second, noded her head once. I stood there for a moment looking around for anything oveus. After a minute of that I looked back to Sona.
Me:"What is it that you are looking for?"
Sona's face formed a confusied expression, handing me the note pad.
Sona:"Did you...see a yordel just now?"
I looked up to Sona, who was waiting for a anwser. I gave a quick look around before handing the pad back
Me:" No I haven't seen any."
Sona screbed something down.
Sona:"She was just here, she said she wanted to play hide and seek then ran off"
Me:" Hide and seek? Kids still play that" Giving a small sigh
Sona:"It wasn't the game or anything the Yordel said, it was what was with her."
Me:" Hmm? What was it?"
Sona:" I don't know, I've never seen anything like it before. It looked like some kind of Fairy or Pix."
Me:" Fairy or Pix?" I gave a slight glance around once more to check.
:" What would a something of that nature be doing in Freljord?"
I paused giving the idea some thought and a genral over view of the surrondings when I noticed Ezreal and Ashe aprouching.
Ezreal:" Hey Summoner, we are heading out." stopping infront of us.
Me:" Oh alright" Ashe noticed Sona's drifting odservation.
Ashe:" Looking for something?"
Sona quickly turned to Ashe. Giving her a small smile and shaking her head.
Ashe:"Alright, well then we will be going"
We left the peir side and entered the docking yard. The yard was frosn to touch but as we walked across the boards I felt an uneasy jolt pass through me.
:" ...stop..." Sona and Ahri looked toward me
:" EVERYONE STOP!" The group halted in their place giving me their adtention.
Ashe:" Hmm? what is the problem."
I looked around the peir side, noting each boat, each building, every shadow. The place didn't feel right. I examed the area for a moment.
:" Alright I guess-" Before I could finish, a high pitch sound flashed passed us killing out any other sound. But in our pain the floor of the peir imploded into the sea and in no less time it hurried upward into the sky. Everyone froze in debief. I then noticed foot steps coming from the left of us, I spun around to meet Venessa sprenting at us.
Venessa:" What happen! I heard that from the ship."
She stepped into our view and looked around the area. Her eyes widen in shock of how much damage was done to the peir .
Ezreal:" I'm not sure what just happen but I've never seen anything like it before. We heard a sound and the wood it...it just fell in-."
Annie:" FELL IN! THE DOCK WAS DESTORYED!" The little girl snapped toward the desturbed boy.
Ashe:" What could have caused this?" Ashe turned to me and Venessa.
Me:" I have no idea, I've never witnessed anything of that nature before..." I stood there in the wake of the event dumbfounded and from myself slighty shacking. Could this be fear? Was I afraid? But what was it that I so afraid of? Thereupon it dawned on me, I wasn't afraid of the what happen, I was afraid for the reason that I not aware of what caused scenario to happened . Slowly I closed my hand trying to stop myself from shacking, only hoping that the others would not see the fear that was brought over me. But it was then I relized... she had not answered Ashe. I glanced over toward the Venessa, a daunting expression expanded across her feature but as I exaimed her a feel crawled over me. She was acquainted with this. It was as if she knew what brought this on. I needed answers.
:" Venessa" My voice stern but ever yet waving.
Venessa circled toward me, our eyes locked as cloud of dim silence formed around us. My voice was the only oddity lighting the air around us.
:" ...what...do you know of this?" Her eyes widen ever so slightly and she began to talk but yet but no words were spoken. She stood in the wake of things and staired at me. I could presume she was debating whether or not to inform us of what said thing or leave of to our own devices.
As Venessa spoke she broke eye content turning her head away as if she was ashamed to admit what she had known. But to tell the truth I didn't blame her.
Venessa:"... I know what it is..." Her voice soft, quiet, almost uncapable to hear.
She bitterly turned back to me but prior to that she did not face me.
:" It is a shadow, a liviling spirt of war, destoring and killing anything in it's path." The words she spilled out seemed to fill me with a sort of distress.
Venessa shifted her gaze toward Ahri and Annie.
:" The reason I acompied you wasn't to insure that you succeed but to insure that you live"
Me:" What?, Venessa what are you talking about?" I looked around, Ahri and Annie had a blank expression plastered on their face. I looked back to Venessa, Venessa had her back to us.
Venessa:" It was right after you departed" Swong around to look at me
Venessa:" We recieved reports of somekind of entity on the outreaches of Valoran"
Me:" So your telling me it's here?"
Venessa lowered her head
She turned around to exaimed the hole" Her eyes reflecting the damage and power. As we stood I could briefly hear the sound of the wood creaked.
Me:"...Venessa..." The air was cold, the wind enchanted the area. The stone ice melting under my feet. The wood creaked once more but when we circled round to its souce another side would found nouise. I were on the egde of anxiety, the haste of a unknown enemey echoed in my shadow.
I took a half step foward, my footing not losing its firm grip of the snow. The air around me was soft but ever so noticable. As I stood the flacks dropped, I shifted my focus to the snow drops. I watched the snow desend but as I continued I took notice to the slight increase in the wind current. The air seem to slowly build to a frowning gale with a creeping voice followed after.
:"su-mmm-on-ers" The voice scratching the air. I gradualy turned around, the view of figure eched. Time seemed to slow to a distance pace. The world around me seem to change, the snow, the peir, the people, all seem to gray out. All remained was grayed outline of a horror I'd never glimpsed before. When my body made full turn, I gazed at this manifestation. Metal plating camouflaged a cerulean blaze. It's horse like limbs parted in a upright stance. A lanter like smile lit the face. The being stood gazing at me. I froze, my arms and legs locked. As I stared at my eye burning with fear.
:" Why hello there." Everyone seemed to only now take notice of the demon's presence. But it was too delayed. It lefted a war-like weapon into the view turned slowly toward the closest individual, sona. Not thinking staight I took a step toward the act. The ghost swung foward, with the intent of killing. I took another step, the weapon only feet away. I leapt forward grabed Sona's wrist pulling her down into my arms. The weapon blundering above her. I spun around, catching my footing and being Sona's figure closer, securing her body. Freeing a robed arm from around her, I raised my hand. My cloak soaring off with hand exposing it. The immense flaming metal readied another cleave. I had no time, I felt a pulse of magic leave my hand, the brute steam slew foward, clashing with the spirt's body. The energy arcing the creep back.
I looked back to the group.
