Hyphea Chapter 9
Angel released himself from Eagle's grip and continued to fly on his own.
-Alright, alright, we'll fight together with Star and Storm – he said. At that moment, he and Eagle heard an explosion coming from where Shadow was. Angel stopped and turned around, and he was shocked. The light from that area was erased.
-You know what, Eagle? – he said, -I don't think even the four of us have a chance against him... he... he erased the light! A dark sorcerer erased light!!!
-I told you – replied Eagle and grabbed his sleeve again. –But if we stay here and play, we'll die sooner! Let's go!
The two flew as fast as they could. Shadow ran after them, not even bothering to speed up. He could run as fast as they could, without any effort. Behind him, nothing could be seen, only darkness created as the result of the light-imprisoning magical blasts.
-Yes, that's it, lead me to the others! – thought Shadow.
Aqua didn't sleep long, but enough to regain her full strength. It was dawn, and the sky was red. She rubbed her eyes a bit and stood up.
-Wow... the sky is so beautiful this morning! – she thought. –Oh, I almost forgot, I got to find Frost!
She summoned the water from the ocean and made a river leading to the top of the mountain the same way as she did before when she was with Frost. She jumped into it and went with the flow. She made a very fast stream so she was there in no time. As she jumped out of the river, the water from it retreated and refilled the ocean.
Then, when she looked to the right, she noticed Rock sitting on a cliff and Flora slowly walking around near him.
-Oh, it's you, Aqua... – said Flora silently when she saw her. Rock stood up and approached Aqua together with Flora. –Listen, umm... I'm sorry for... well, you know what – she continued.
-Oh, don't worry about that – said Aqua with a smile. -I can forgive you.
-Really? – asked Flora.
-Yeah! If you can do something for me, that is. You owe me one, remember?
Rock and Flora looked each other, wondering what Aqua has in mind.
-But before that – she spoke on – how do you two feel now?
-Bad –Rock sighed. –I feel like an idiot. It was wrong from us to attack you two like that...
-Well, at least you can do is to admit – replied Aqua crossing her arms and making a somewhat angry face.
-We're really sorry... – added Flora. Aqua smiled again.
-Well, maybe I can make you feel better.
-How? – asked the two earth sorcerers.
-All you have to do is to come with me and help me look for Frost. – Aqua noticed their shocked faces, so she added - That way, we're even. Agreed?
Rock looked at Flora. After thinking for a moment, she nodded.
-Alright then! Let's go!!! – shouted Aqua and started to run towards the woods.
-Hey, wait for us! Not so fast! – shouted Rock while he and Flora ran after her.
The three ran to the edge where the steep slope leading to the woods was. Aqua turned to the two other sorcerers and asked.
-So, how do we get there without breaking our necks?
Flora smiled. –The same way you got up here. By using magic. – She pointed her staff downwards and suddenly, vines from down below started to climb up the mountain. They were rough enough to have three people standing on them.
-Wow, this is so great! – joyfully shouted Aqua and jumped on the vines in an instant. Rock and Flora followed, and Flora used her magic to slowly lower the vines.
Frost was still awake. No matter how he tried, he could not fall asleep. He was thinking about all sorts of things. As soon as he left the ice area, his life completely changed. He met many sorcerers, but still, he knows so little about them. Where is Aqua? Is she alright? Why did the earth sorcerers attack them? How many more sorcerers is he going to encounter? What abilities do they have? Are they evil? All this was mixed inside Frost's mind.
And then, he started to look at Blaze. For a moment, he forgot about everything and concentrated only at observing her. She has a pretty face, and a nice body, he thought. He just laid there and watched her sleep, thinking about the same thing all the time. About Blaze.
The flickering flame turned off. Frost's thoughts suddenly vanished. He heard a beast groaning very near him. For a moment, he noticed a pair of eyes sparkle behind Blaze. They were approaching, and the groan got louder and louder. He was almost there. It was still dark. The shadow that the large mountain made was covering a large part of the woods. Frost could not find his staff, and the beast was only a few steps away. The beast roared. It jumped towards Blaze. At the same time, Frost, without thinking, jumped between Blaze and the beast. But the beast could not reach him. It was stopped.
Blaze and Pyro instantly woke up and stood up. It was getting a bit brighter now. The wolf-like beast, standing in front of Frost, was struggling to break free from the vines holding its rear legs. Rock, Flora, and Aqua arrived.
Flora dragged the beast back into the thick woods with her vines.
-Hey everyone – said Rock.
-Frost! You're safe!!! – shouted Aqua running towards Frost and hugging him tightly.
Frost, a bit reservedly, hugged her back. -Nice to know you're OK too – he told her.
-What on Hyphea...? – said Blaze drowsily.
