Distraction at its best

"You are new here, aren't you?" London asked the new arrival, who had a confused look spreading across his face.

'Uh, yea."

"I'm London."

a twitch in the eye

"Doesn't matter who I am, who are you?" London demanded.

"Arvid, would you mind telling me where we are?"

Zanaria pushed his way to the front of the group, now forming around Arvid. The two locked eyes, then Zanaria put a finger in Arvid's face.

"I saw what you did, with the ice. Your darker being was playing with fire, just like that burnt-up marshmallow. " Zanaria gestured over to Issac. "Yous must be able to play with fire too. I don't need another elemental freak on my tail, so watch yourself."

Arvid, opened his mouth for rebuttle, but decided it was for the best to let the bird-guy say what he had to say

Moonal tapped on Zanaria's shoulder. "It's not the best time for bickering, my winged being. The shadow beings are coming again."

Zanaria cursed under his breath and pulled out his swords.

"I'm going to go dive from the sky, and slice their limbs off. Hopefully it will buy us enough time to get Autumn somewhere, and this new guy filled in.

Moonal nodded in agreement, but was wary that Zanaria would make it back safely. He began to usher the rest of his party to a safer area.

Zanaria pushed off from the ground and spread his wings. It felt good to be back in the air, all of the past events seemed to dissapear with the wisps of wind licking at his skin. He aimed himself for the group of shadow beings and dove towards them

Maybe this distraction will redeem me, or at least start. Zanaria's mind wavered from pain and anger to the feeling of redemption that has left during his stay on the planet.

As he neared the shadows he muttered under his breath.

"This is for you Liako."

The End
