Lyfiria was still sniffling on the ground, "but you don't understand!" She said, "she's a mean little girl! Look what she did to my tail." She pulled her leafy tail out in front of her, and showed off the missing leaves. "It really hurts!" She complained.

This was the first time that Zyliria had shown some kindness to Christopher. He froze up, before looking up at the animus. Admittedly, she did seem quite fond of his daughter and e didn't know why he'd doubted her. "O-okay," he said, standing up, "and your tail, that will probably give you away when we reach Faela, so it should be covered up. You didn't injure it did you?" He asked. He worried for her now, much like he worried for his daughter. He let out a sharp whistle, and his horse came galloping through the clearing. It's legs were cut up from thorn bushes, probably altered by Lyfiria to attack te pony. Christopher saw the blood, and held the horse close, "we'll all have to walk. She's hurt, and won't carry any of our weight." He reached into the pack, and saw the teddy bear from Hostar. Bringing it out, he could still see a fine layer of soot on it, which he shook off, and handed to his daughter, feeling she needed the comfort of her mother right now, since she was near fainting. She was getting stronger now. He also took out some medical gauze, and held it towards Zyliria, offering her to use it.

Mother’s eyes, the only part of her visible in the darkness aside from the ribbon extended around Lyfiria’s shoulders, hardened. “Don’t worry, my daughter. Every bit of pain you’ve endured, she will suffer...a thousand times over. Once that’s done, she will be absorbed...she will pay for hurting you. Nobody hurts my daughters and get’s away with it.” Her light blue eyes narrowed. “Especially not another of my daughters,”

Zyliria smiled at Christopher, something she was not sure she’d ever done before, and accepted the gauze, not entirely sure what to do with it. While she had been in some significant pain, she had not, thankfully, broken any bones, though her tail had gotten a rumpling, she did not feel as if any permanent damage had been done there either. Despite her attempts at a fatality, Lyfiria had done no lasting damage.

Caitlyn took the bear, holding it a little closer to her. She felt a great swell of exhaustion sweep across her body, and she fell to her knees. Suddenly, she her vision went a little hazy. She sat down, cross legged, trying to think as pain filled her head. “I..I think I might need to take a break,” she said, slowly.

Zyliria rushed to Caitlyn’s side, keeping the girl from lying down. “There are more almost definitely coming, we need to go now,” she said, worriedly, throwing an urgent glance to Christopher. “We can rest in Faela once we get there, but if we wait here much longer we won’t be going anywhere!”

The knight caught sight of Zyliria's smile, and couldn't help but feel slightly charmed by it. In a way, she reminded him of Caitlyn's mother. She had a fondness of Caitlyn that bordered on being maternal. When Caitlyn went down to the ground, Zyliria was the first to react. He knelt by his daughter, and stroked her hair, "you did good today honey." He lifted her into his arms, and stood by the horse. "Zyliria, you take the horse. We'll go now. I don't want to run into imbyria again. By the way, I have some questions about her power. Something strange happened and I can't explain it." He started trekking through the woods back to the road.

Caitlyn blinked bright spots out of her field of vision, and looked up at her father weakly. “Thanks...Dad,” she mumbled, before her head flopped backwards, and she passed out.

Zyliria looked at Christopher a little taken aback at how calm he was after his daughter had fallen. “Do you think she’s all right?” she asked, nervously. “She was using quite a lot of magic, and I don’t think she fully understand her power.” At the mention of Imbyria, she instantly straightened, looking over her shoulder, as if expecting the dark witch to materialize behind her, which was of course well within her power. “Yes, we should go.” She lead the way back the way she and Caitlyn had run, to Faela. “What did you wish to know about Imbyria?”

His blade still shone with his blood, and his hands were bleeding , but he refrained from touching Caitlyn with his hands. He held them out to Zyliria who was holding the gauze. "She fell like this last time she used her power. This is only the second time she's used them, but judging by how much longer she'd stood compared to last time, she's gotten stronger." He ended up resting the bear against his chest, with Caitlyn as a shelf for the stuffed bear. " now, about Imbyria, she was able to summon two fully formed phantoms. Judging by everything I know about phantoms, a normal blade can't kill a phantom, but somehow I did. Also, I have the feeling she could have killed me at any moment she'd have wanted to. Why didn't she?" It was these questions that plagued his mind the most. The horse snorted, and nudged the back of Zyliria's shoulder, asking her for an apple.

Zyliria nodded, listening carefully as Christopher explained the last time Caitlyn used magic. Caitlyn had of course told her the story of how she’d fought of a pack of bandits, multiple times over that long day of travelling they’d had, but she had, it seemed, failed to mention that she’d fainted after that magical display as well.

She listened to him ask about Imbyria, trying to recall what that most dangerous sibling of hers could do with her dark magic. “I...I don’t know why your blade was able to kill the phantom. I don’t really know how those things work, I never really talked to Imbyria about them,” she had rarely talked to her older sister at all, let alone about her disturbing magic. “As for why she didn’t kill you, I also have no real idea. She likes to collect humans, along with whatever creature she thinks might fight well for her, for her little group of phantoms. Perhaps Mother gave her specific orders to not kill anyone this time around, I don’t really know.”

She turned as the horse nudged her to give it a scathing look. The creature had eaten at the same time, and of the same quantity, as the rest of them had, and they’d spent the past few minutes nearly being killed by her sister, while the horse had been running around through the forest, apparently being attacked by plants as she had.

Christopher noticed the horse nudge Zyliria and smiled at the display of begging from the animal. He kept walking with Caitlyn in his arms, and soon enough, they came across the main road. "Alright, I guess I'll just have to ask around in Faela." they were coming up to the walls of Faela. He stopped walking, and set his daughter down. Turning to Zyliria, he said, "your ears and tail are a dead giveaway of what you are. Here." He took his coat off, and wrapped it around her shoulders, covering her up. "There. You ready to go into the big city?"

Zyliria sighed, and accepted the coat. “We’ll be walking around carrying an unconscious child, we’re going to attract plenty of attention anyways,” she reminded him. She didn’t much like the idea of hiding her identity, much less with something as rudimentary as a hooded coat. Anyone slightly suspicious would only have to look at her carefully for more than five seconds to see through Christopher’s admittedly improvised disguise. She sighed. It would have to do, they didn't have time to come up with a better idea. They turned along the road, and the walls of Faela came once again into view. She scanned them, giving them a nervous glance before looking back at Christopher. “Yeah, let’s head straight to wherever your merchant friend lives, the less time I spend out and about here the better off we’ll all be,” she muttered as they approached the gates.

As the company came out into the clearing, much more was visible in the daylight. A stable was set up off to the side over up against the wall of Faela. Sitting on the front porch was a young stable boy he was wearing a plain pair of brown pants, and a dirty white shirt, "hey mista?" He called out, "I noticed ya horse seems ta be in a bad way? Ya wanna bring'ear over here and we'll take care of her? For a fee uh course."

"Sorry but we have no money," Christopher said, still walking forwards with Caitlyn in his arms. He hoped that the stable boy wouldn't notice Zyliria.

"Hey what's goin on with her?" The stable boy asked, pointing over at Caitlyn, who was stirring a little in her sleep.

Zyliria strategically ignored the stable boy, continuing on her way to towards Faela. If stableboys were asking questions before they even got into the city, they would have an extremely difficult time in Faela itself. “We need to get through this place as quickly as possible,” Zyliria whispered to Christopher. “The more time we spend out in the open, the more questions people are going to ask, and the more questions, the sooner they’ll notice me,” she muttered, trying her best to both avoid eye contact with the boy and keep a close watch on him, making sure he hadn’t noticed anything about her. “How long is this walk to your friend’s place going to be, exactly?” she asked, nervously. .

Christopher ignored the stable boy as well, and continued walking towards the walls, "he lives just off the main market. He's not your every day 'sell you fruit' vendor." The knight prayed he'd have some answers. His daughter was still asleep in his arms. If she was still asleep when they went to see him, there may be problems. He looked over at Zyliria and saw she was still on edge. "Hey, it's gonna be alright. Relax. You're too tense." The horse nudged Zyliria again in the shoulder, and made some happy snorting.

Zyliria nodded, attempting a smile, and walked forwar. She looked over her shoulder cautiously as the knight, the animi, and the unconscoious child walked through the city gates, and into a market of Faela. The cobbled streets were wide, and thronged with people, visitors from far off lands or the forests just outside the city, merchants selling their wares, the occasional platoon of city guards, which made Zyliria especially nervous. She turned slightly, so that her face was unseen by them as they passed. “So, which way then?” she asked Christopher. “Let’s go,” she said, very quietly, only barely audible in the crowded market.

The city streets were full of people from different walks of life. Beggars sat to the side of the roads, sitting on blankets, spouting profanity at anyone who came anywhere near. Farmers would leave their stalls momentarily to buy seed from other vendors so they could grow more crop to earn more money. There were a few higher class citizens who would move leisurely from stall to stall, contemplating wether or not they should buy rare or ornate trinkets. All of these better off citizens were accompanied by bodyguards. Then there were a few undesirables who would skulk about on the outside of the market, mostly near the entrances to alleys, where they would peddle their illegal fire grass, or holly whiskey. Christopher knew not to go anywhere near these people, so he kept to the middle of the road. Knowing Zyliria wouldn't like being in the open like this, he sped up, to make their time in plain sight would be much shorter.
Merchants would call out, hollering over one another to attempt to advertise their products. One of the undesirables could be heard screaming, due to being caught by the city guard.
"Why. Hello there weary travelers!" Said a young woman, who was wearing a blue dress with marigold yellow lace. He had a clear pale complection, and her straight brown hair could be seen framing her gentle face, only to be covered by a small hood of the same color as the dress she wore that day. "My name is Mirabelle, and I couldn't help but notice you seem a bit on edge. Maybe I can help you at my shop. I sell insences for curing different ailments, including stress. I might even have something your lady might like," she said to Christopher.
The knight laughed politely, and said, "I'm sorry, Mirabelle was it? We're just friends." He wanted to take her attention off of Zyliria, but was doing a lousy job of it.
"Oh, I'm sorry then. Ive never really been good at reading people. But I'm still sure she'd appreciate it,"Mirabelle said happily, trying to extend a friendly hand out to the travelers. Her friendly remarks could not go unnoticed, as she walked down the street with them.
Christopher sighed, slightly annoyed by her peppy attitude and persistence. "I'm sorry but we're broke," he said apologetically. That definitely changed the way Mirabelle looked at them.
Her face turned to one of pity, as she said, "oh, I'm sorry to hear that. Here, take this. It's free," she said, bringing a small bottle of incense out of her basket, and put the little bottle in Zyliria's hands, before bustling off to try and drum up business.
The city of Faela truly was a wonderful place. Christopher turned to Zyliria and offered her a smile, "pretty greedy people aren't they, vendors," he teased, stifling a laugh. They came out into a large city center, which was much busier than the street market they'd just walked through. Shops surrounded a large fountain in the middle of the open area. Christopher began surveying the area, trying to remember the direction the expert lived and worked at was.

Zyliria shifted in place, trying, and failing, not to bump into anyone as they crossed through the bustling market. The noise, the sounds of merchants hollering over each other to attract potential customers, the sounds of parents calling out to their children as they waded through the masses, the shouts of some poor undesirable being beaten, it was an overload for the animus, whose ears were designed to detect the sounds of deer moving quietly through the woods. She blinked a few times, trying to accustom herself to the raised volume of the world she was now in.

When the human girl approached her, Zyliria was only barely able to hold back her sheer terror. She leaned slightly back, trying to keep Mirabelle from noticing her extra pair of ears, her hands raised slightly. The girl, it seemed, was entirely friendly, and pressed a small bottle of some material Zyliria had never seen before into her hands. Zyliria mumbled her thanks, though she doubted whether Mirabelle had heard her. She herself had not heard her own words, so loud was the bustle of the streets. Then she was gone, as suddenly as she’d appeared. Zyliria looked over to see Christopher smiling at her.

“Yeah…”she agreed, still apprehensive. She kept silent, keeping herself as small as possible, trying not to attract attention, she was still certain that if she relaxed too much, she would be spotted for what she was, and hurled from the city, where she was certain Mother and the rest would be waiting to deal with her. Sitting by the fountain, she watched as Christopher scanned the area, searching for whatever house or shop he was looking for. She watched the people around them, couples strolling down the street, mothers trying to rein in their children as they darted through the streets, merchants, some standing on the edge of the street shouting of their wares, others sitting in the shade, almost asleep. Zyliria took a deep breath, and realizing that she was gritting her teeth. She took another deep breath, relaxing her jaws, loosening her shoulders. There was nothing to fear, she thought to herself, everyone was to preoccupied with their own business to harm her, or to even notice her.

A small band of children started running towards Zyliria, laughing and smiling. For a second, it almost seemed like she was about to be tackled, when they dove into the water in the fountain. Almost immediately their mother was shouting at them, telling them how misbehaved they were. Christopher had set Caitlyn down on the fountains edge next to Zyliria, giving his arms a rest. He kept scanning the area for the shop. After a few minutes of searching, he realized where he had to go. There was a side street, not so narrow to be called an alleyway, but not wide enough to be called a road. That was where the man they were looking for was. "Over there," he said, pointing at the street. That's when he spotted someone very familiar. A man with a black handprint on his face. The leader of the bandit crew that attacked them. His heart stopped for a moment, and it leapt up into his throat. "Z-Zyliria, we gotta go. Right now!" He understood she wouldn't recognize him, but still knew that it would be dangerous for them if they were seen by the man.
