Xenosa kicked at the wind-rider, forcing it to increase its already break-neck pace. These things were no tame ponies, the creatures were wild and dangerous. That is, if you didn't know how to handle it.
"How you hanging there lip-stitcher?" She screamed over the bellowing wind to Calypso.
Calypso was crouched down close to the neck of Jacinta, her rider, and laughed wildly.
Scruby trees and sparse grasses were dotted throughout the sandy terrain. Dust formed in huge trails behind the girls as they raced to Lakarlica. The ride was fairly smooth as the animals were true to their name, they were riding the winds, angling their winds for balance and support. Everything was smooth, that is, until Xenosa peered ahead to she the land suddely ended about three hundred yards ahead and they were coming up fast. Real fast.
"PULL UP!" she screamed at Calypso, trying to think "GET IN THE AIR THE LAND IS..."
She wasn't able to finish the sentence properly. The creatures had already propelled themselves off the cliff. But it didn't feel like they had stopped running. Xenosa could still feel the muscle movement beneath her. The only difference was, the winds on either side of her were pumpimg in rotations like the dragons in fantasy stories. They had hardly even slowed.
"What was that?" Calypso called. The smile on her face was smug. She totally knew that this would happen. She sat there the whole time being all smartsy and let Xenosa panic and forget that the animals' wings weren't just for show.
Xen felt embarassed. Luckily though Calypso couldn't see her cheeks burning. She surveyed the area with a bird's eye view. After an hour of flying she could see a steady line in the distance.
"We're almost at land again!" she yelled to Calypso. Cal nodded and began to bring the rider down, little by little. Within minutes the two were back on the ground and speeding through the now thicker trees.
"MY ASS HURTS!" Xenosa screamed. She had been riding for hours now.
Two hours later Xenosa was circling lower and lower over Lakarlika. For a city-state it sure was small.
She felt almost nothing as the riders touched down. Imediatly she took them to a stable area on the far side of town. She noticed a group of people dispersing in pairs into the nearest inn.
"Hey Cal, I wanna stay in that inn tonight, see what all the hub-bub is, k?"
"I thought we were her to talk to the other vespers."
"Yeah, so, we will, after we see what all these people are doing here. They're not Lakarlican and they're definatly not Vespers. Some don't even look Atalian let alone Eschazen."
Calypso sighed, "whatever, just don't be too idiotic."
Then Xenosa saw her. She was a tiny, platinum blonde chick walking into the inn where Xen had decided to stay. But it wasn't the girl she was looking at. It was the thread through her lips.
"Cal, we have a problem."
Calypso's hand went to her blind fold. "What."
"There's another Vesper here."
"Isn't that why we're here you dumb ass?" she said dropping her hand and looking annoyed.
"No, we're here for Lakarlican Vespers. They are all Neck-stictchers. This one's got lip stitches."
"Duh im sure, its not like im a blind rat like you."
Calypso didn't respond to the comment. She had an eerie feeling things here were not going to go as planned. She suddenly thought of her sister. Why would she think of her at a time like this?
is it okay that i made the town lakarlica?
and i have "custody" over greeny's characters for now so yeah.... but she'll be back very soon
and each group of vespers does diferent stitches. Calian Vespers are usually cheek and sticters, Lakarlican and neck, Sharzeels(from the other city known as Sharzeel) do eyes, and so on
hey can i make a map of Atalia?
I ran into the forest outside the village with Zoey close behind. Hiding behind a tree I lost her briefly. I needed help, but I didn't know how to get it. Suddenly Zoey pushed her way out of the forestry in front of me. "Yuki!!!" I yelled, not knowing if he could hear me. Stepping back I felt the tree, "this is very bad," I thought to my self as I closed my eyes.
"Yuki!" My eyes flow open at the call of my name. Looking around I relished it was Kallik. I ran toads her voice. I froze when I ran into a small clearing. Kallik was backed agents a tree on one side of it, and I think it was Zoey was moving in on her. Looking up I could tell it was close to dawn. I throw my self in front of Kallik, holding Ice Sky in a defensive position, I didn't plan on hurting whoever it was. Suddenly a clawed hand knocked Ice Sky away. I felt claws in my shoulder. Blood streamed from the wound on my shoulder and I felt weak. I collapsed to the ground. as I blacked out the last thing I saw was the first streaks of the rising sun.
Okay, only Yuki got beat-up.
Knightly and Ashido made their way to their room. They went in and quickly shut the door. "Brother He is close." Ashido said to Knightly. "I know brother I can feel my bones shaking. Maybe we should warn everyone." Knightly said. "No brother, we have to face him ourselves. Only we can beat him I hope. For now lets just get some rest." Ashido and Knightly soon went to sleep, ready for the upcoming battle.
Miwako nervously looked around. She had no idea who she was supposed to room with. Girls and boys paired off one-by-one and almost noby was left out side. . She did see a scary looking woman with her hands on the boy, Chase's, shoulders. She caught Miwako's eyes and growled. That was something Miwako thought was weird, she'd never actually heard somebody growl at her. Such possesive behavior was crazy! Instinctively she crouched into a fighting postition. Something about this woman, though she was beautiful, was deadly and scary, like she came from hel itself. AS soon as Chase saw the object of the scary lady's evil glare, he rolled his eyes and flashed a misachievious smile at Miwako.
Her tough appearance melted into a fumbled blushing mess. And the woman laughed. She laughed. How nasty! All the boy's disapproval from earlier seemed gone though. Or maybe, he just wanted to get laid, being some sort of sex demon and all...
Not wanting to continue that akward stand off, she turned around. Though that didnt't help much because she ended up face to face with a dirty-blonde boy who was insanly adorable. She squeaked and almost turned away again but he spoke first.
"Hey I haven't seen you before, what's you name?"
After the girl turned away Chase looked back at Adalia.
"Did you see the way she looked at your! UGH that tramp! You won't fall in love or anything, right Chase?" she looked at him with those stupid puppy eyes he hated.
"Whatever, she's not my type anyway..." he said. "C'mon lets go to bed im exauhsted." He walked off and Adalia followed.
Xenosa looked at Calypso with rage.
"JUST SHUT UP OKAY!" She screamed in anger. "AND DONT YOU DARE CALL ME KID YOU BITCH I DON'T CARE HOW OLD YOU ARE!" She breathed heavily after the outburst but it didn't seem to bother Calypso.
"Damn Wretch," she said under her breath.
Calypso and Xenosa didn't talk until they got to the town.
Xenosa walked into the small pub like area and demanded transportation.
"Where you headed?" The bar man said. He noted the stitches on the to girl and decided not to mess with vespers. He's had a run in with one a while back and he never wanted to again. It would be easier to give them what they wanted.
"Lakarlica," Calypso said confidently.
"Ahh, I see," he said in fear. "I'll have two wind-riders ready in no time ladies."
Xenosa turned to Calypso and asked, "What the hell is a wind-rider?"
Calypso sighed, "don't you know anything? They're part Horse, Part dog, part bird beasts that glide on the wind or run like lightning. They'll get us to Lakarlica in less then an hour and a half."
"Whoa," was all Xenosa could say. Sure enough the man brought out two very horse like creatures with huge manes and paws. Not to mention gigantinc feathered wings. The barke and howled, but some whinnyed like horses. Such odd Creatures, though Xenosa.
"This," said the man handing a particularly nasty one to Xenosa, "Is Zelik, handle hime wisely. Be firm." He was sure she could take it. And he handed an equally terrifying one to Calypso, "Take good care of her. She only answers to Jacinta, don't shorten her name or she'll shorten you by half," He said.
"We'll see," were Cal's only words. Without even paying, the two vespers hopped on the creatures and began shooting of to the west towards Lakarlica.
