Li hid behind the wall as he peaked into the room.
As his eyes darted across the room he took notice of someone one the grround.
The two figures appeared hazy as if their outline was not fixed.
And at them, a savage glare was thrown by that person.
Even as she knelt, her posture was defiant.
Next to her was the spear that she stole.
His true sight was not able to completely penetrate the haze around the two figures but he could tell that they were humanoid.
Familiar symbols were etched onto the figures.
But his eyes remained fixed on the people.
One held a thin long blade. The other appear unarmed.
However, he was unable to properly confirm this due to his awkward positioning.
Li cursed softly.
Torn between his emotions, he quickly reached a decision to continue to continue to his destination.
As he turned his head, his eye caught onto the arm of one of the shadow.
And in that moments he reached out without thinking…
She hated the people in front of her.
To be honest even she couldn’t understand exactly why he hated them as much as she did.
After she had arrived back at her village, she was told that her grandfather was injured and in a comatose state.
She had taken the news without showing any emotion.
For a while she was motionless.
It was strange, She was scolded many times before but then as the hot unkind words that he had been injured due to him reducing the guards in order to look for her, it had suddenly sank that her grandfather was injured partly due to her.
Then he held a burning desire to find and punish the people responsible.
No one stopped her.
no one ever did would.
She had encountered them as she left in the forest within the black region.
With surprise on her side she managed to down a few of the members using stealth.
They were weak.
She did not use her spear but instead with simple close range strikes, grapples and throws, thy were eliminated
She had been taught the common tougue from a frequent visit to the villiger who incidentally also taught her spear arts.
Using this, she was able to find the men who fought her grandfather but…
she was caught, handed to the men but then escaped before falling unconscious…
As she look onward to as the blade that descended sharply towards her head, at that last instant something pushed her away.
It took several seconds for her to notice that she had been pushed out of harms way for the moment.
And in her place was the strange figure in a same outfit that she had encountered earlier.
she could not smell any blood.
But what she had not noticed is that the two men also didn’t move as they stared at the body
If Li was conscious maybe he would be able that voice soft muttering…
