Chapter Sixteen

Zack looks over a piece of equipment, this is the chest plate that holds the cloaking device for the armour of the soldiers that had come after him. It does not look to be equipped with a transmitter or tracking device of any kind, that's not surprising seeing as this is intended for complete stealth, anything transmitting  like that would be compromising if found by the opposing side.

He looks back to the soldier that he has taken the equipment and armour from, she lies unconscious on the ground with her hands and feet tied, like the last soldier he had run into she does not have the features of a True Blood, having a figure similar to an animal’s form like a Wild or a Domestic would.

Zack shakes his head rather confused, this does not make any sense at all. “Why would True Bloods trust a Domestic with equipment that could completely hide them from even their sight?” He puts the equipment down as he walks over and begins to look her over, from what he knows the True Bloods treat Domestics and Wilds like servants that were lower than them, the idea that they would be working alongside them as soldiers just doesn't make sense.

The skunk grabs onto her ear looking in it for an identification number of some kind, he does not find anything of that sort on her. She lets out a mumble as she begins to move and wake up, Zack takes several steps back from her as she lifts herself into a seated position, looking around her for a moment before looking over towards Zack and staring at him.

Zack grins at her, she still looks to be rather dazed. “I didn’t expect you to be up so soon.”

She stares at him in silence for a moment, eventually finding what it is she wants to say, her voice is unusually slow dragged for someone like her. “I’m going to break your jaw…”

Zack laughs at the comment. “Not the first time I heard that from someone I just met.” He looks her over taking note of her animalistic features. “I have a sneaking suspicion that I’m bad at making first impressions.”

He looks back to her with  shake of his head, she does not look like a familiar species, she looks almost like a red raccoon but still has significantly different markings and features. “Your code name’s May right?”

The woman responds still half there. “Yes. All the females in my division are named after months.”

Zack seems confused. “Months? Not numbers?”

“The others have numbers from a project they were in before joining this division, but they were all given new names because their numbers were too similar.”

Zack continues questioning her. “How many people are in your division?”

“Five.”

“What exactly is your division? What do you do?”

She shakes her head starting to slowly come to her senses. “I’m not answering that!”

Zack seems a little surprised, he places his hand upon her head and looks to where he had hit her to knock her out, the small cut he has left her with has healed over. “You’re pretty quick at recovering both physically and mentally.”

May pulls away from him, a cross look is now on her face as she stares back at him. “Don’t you touch me!”

Zack holds his hands to either side of him as he backs away from her. “As you wish.” He gets up returning to the equipment and armour that he has taken from her and looks over it. “I’ve got what I need from you anyway, any questions I ask are purely for curiosities sake.”

He begins to fit the armour and chest piece on him, May quickly raises her voice to him in protest when she sees this. “Hey! You can’t do that! That belongs to me!”

Zack shrugs his shoulders not sure of how that is relevant. “Yeah, but I stole it from you. So I can do what I want with it.”

May lets out a growl, she turns away from him and searches the room for her communication piece. “Just you wait until I get my hands on you! You’re going to regret tying me up like this and taking MY things!” She looks back to him. “You can’t fit in that suit anyway!”

Zack doesn’t look to be having many problems doing so. “Don’t flatter yourself, I’m not that tall and you’re not that thin.”

May lets out an angered screech, insulted by the comment. “That’s been adjusted and fitted to fit me! I swear if you touch those calibrations-”

Zack interrupts her before she can finish talking, already almost done putting the suit on. “Already did, wasn’t going to fit me very well around the hips if I didn’t.”

May lets out another angered scream as she struggles to free herself, Zack grins to her before activating the cloaking device on the chest of the armour he is wearing. “I’ll see you later raccoon girl.”

May gives an even more angered shriek as she watches Zack disappear from sight. “Raccoon? RACCOON!!! What!? How dare you!! How would you like it if I called you a squirrel!? You wouldn’t like it very much now would you!!” She begins to quiet down when she gets no response, he is most likely gone, May pouts to herself when she realizes that she’s talking to herself. “I’m a red panda…”

She lets out a sigh as she looks around her for anything that might be of help. “Oh just great… I’m going to get chewed out for hours for this I know it, what a rookie mistake, you would think this was my first assignment on the field or something.” She spots the knife that Zack had used to defend himself beforehand, he no longer needs it after acquiring her weapons and armour, May shifts her way over toward it, turning her back towards it as if to grab it with her hands, she uses it to cut through the ropes that currently keep her bound. “When I get my hands on him he’s going to wish he was dead.”

She cuts her hands free, and uses the knife to cut the bindings on her feet. May gets to her feet and dusts of the grim and dirt that has gotten on her. She then looks down at herself, all she is wearing the military issued undergarments, she lets out a grunt of annoyance. “Geeze this is embarrassing… if I’m gonna be seen like this I would much rather it be in something cute.”

July’s voice speaks up to get her attention. “May are you alright?”

May places her hands on her hips as she turns in the direction the voice had come from, July’s figure soon becomes visible. “Yeah I’m fine, he didn’t hurt me or nothing, just cracked me pretty good on the head. You just missed the little pest you know, you guys really need to start picking up the pace. Now he’s out there equipped with my weapons and armour, it’s going to be like looking for an invisible needle in a haystack.”

“We’ll find him.”

“I don’t need any assurance from you, just bring me back to headquarters so I can re-equip and find that little pest!” She walks past July while mumbling angrily to herself. “I hope they cut him up into thousands of tiny little pieces during their testing!!”

*******


Shiya raises a wall of ice in front him and Tahki, the bullets that had been fired hit it instead of them, they explode a short moment later and shower the two with sharp shards of ice.

Tahki looks to the ground that is covered in snow, there are too many footprints from the fighting. “This isn’t working, the water was much more useful for pinpointing him.”

Shiya looks over to her. “At least we don’t have to work about being electrocuted through the water.” The sound of running footsteps catches his attention, Shiya turns toward it and throwing another attack towards that area, unfortunately not hitting anything.

Tahki looks to the ground near Shiya, footprints signalling that the invisible figure is rapidly starting to approach him. “Chieftain to your right!”

Shiya looks to his right, and he reacts to late as he is hit by his opponent, the blow sends him flying back into the nearest museum display bringing it to the ground.

Tahki attacks the figure shortly after he has hit Shiya, landing a blow on the unseen figure, she then hooks her leg onto his and throws him to the ground, Levi grabs onto her neck before she can pin him down, his figure appears, the power from his suit diverts to the glove on his arm to shock his opponent with a powerful dose of electricity.

Tahki lets out a scream of pain as the electricity surges through her body, she stops when she passes out from the pain, Levi throws her to the ground and looks to where he has thrown Shiya, spotting the white wolf almost upon him ready to throw another attack, Levi quickly rolls out of the way and jumps to his feet and a sharp shard of ice is hurled into the spot that he had been in, Levi takes several quick steps back while activating the cloaking device on his armour and disappears from sight once more.

Shiya lets out a growl of frustration, a coat of ice starts to form on the objects around him. “You will not stay hidden from me!!” The snow that is falling to the ground begins to grow thicker as the cold air picks up speed and violently begins to throw it about the room.

Fitz covers his face, the blizzard that Shiya is creating hard for him to see through. “How do you expect to find him in this!?”

Shiya looks around him, the sharp air and cold blowing snow does not bother him in the least, Shiya leaps forward to attack when the snow collects and reveals the figure that he is looking for.

A large pillar of ice forms under Levi, hitting him and lifting him up into the air, pinning him against the high ceiling of the museum, Shiya jumps onto and runs up the shard of ice coming to a stop when he reaches Levi, splitting the top of the pillar off and driving it into the ground.

Fitz lets out a horrified gasp as he watches the icicle rip a large hole in the museum floor, he looks from that and to the walls and displays that have also been destroyed in this fight. “Shiya you’re destroying this place!! Are you even trying to be careful!? You do know that even if you manage to win this fight that Eve is going to murder you right!?”

Shiya jumps down from the pillar of ice, he looks into the hole he has made in the floor, not spotting his opponent at first, the snow in front of him parts as the figure jumps up at him, punching him hard in the stomach and knocking the wind out of him, Levi grabs onto Shiya’s neck with his right hand while he is out of breath, his form becomes visible as the power begins to divert to his glove for the attack.

Levi gives Shiya a rather satisfied grin. “You put up a pretty weak fight. I was expecting more from one of the sources of destruction.”

The grin leaves Levi’s face as he lets out a sudden gasp of pain, his grip around Shiya’s neck loosens until Shiya is able to pull himself free, the small wolf stumbles back as he gasps for air while holding onto his stomach trying to catch his breath.

Levi looks down to his chest, a large icicle has struck him from behind and run through his heart, Levi turns back to Shiya with a sneer. “You tricky little devil.”

A loud clap of what sounds like thunder echo’s throughout the museum, Levi looks up towards the ceiling recognizing the noise. “Someone deactivated the barrier from the outside?” He frowns as he looks back to Shiya. “Seems like you’ve somehow managed to call for backup.”

Levi clenches his teeth as he grabs onto the shard of ice that has been run through him, snapping it and freeing himself from its grip, he walks past Shiya and towards Tahki, he is going to have to make his way out quickly if he wants to avoid being even more outnumbered than he already is. “Not exactly the victory I wanted but at least I won’t be going back empty handed.”

He stops beside Tahki’s figure picking her up and slinging her over his shoulder, she is all that he can take with him if he intends to make a quick escape, he looks over to Fitz when he notices the raccoon staring at him. “Don’t tell me you’re going to try to stop me.”

Fitz takes a fearful step back, Levi turns from him as his figure begins to disappear from sight. “I didn’t think so.”

Another clap of thunder sounds, Fitz jumps back fearfully from the noise. He looks over to Shiya who is slowly starting to get back to his feet, he then looks to the blood soaked broken shards of ice. “How could he just get up and walk away from that…? That should have killed him…”

*******


Mort holds his arms in front of him as he shields his eyes, a large dome claps loudly and bolts of electricity form and clash into each other, some break free of the barrier and hit the street lights and nearby buildings, of all the glass windows and doors on the museum shattering at once and spraying broken pieces of glass everywhere as the electricity gives one last thunderous clap and disappears.

Mort un-shields his face as he looks toward the gun he is holding in his hand before looking back to the building at a small electronic device that he has shot, all of that destruction had been caused by something that could easily fit in the palm of his hand, he did not expect such a reaction.

He pushes his curiosity to the side as he makes his way back to the entrance of the museum where Naida was waiting for him, Eighteen is no longer by her side, Mort runs up to her and questions her. “Where is Lockheart?”

Naida shrugs her shoulders. “He ran back into the museum.” Mort makes his way past her to head deeper into the building, Naida grabs onto his arm to stop him. “We shouldn’t go in! Let’s just go back. I’ve been gone longer than I thought that I would be, my manager must be going crazy not knowing where I am.”

Mort pulls his arm from her as he continues to make his way forward, Naida lets out  sad sigh as she begins to follow him, trying to stop him from going any further and finding the others. “Oh please let’s just go! That man is frightening and I don’t want to run into him again, you could get hurt if you go after him like this.”

Mort doesn’t look back to Naida as he continues forward, his eyes open wide as he stops in his tracks, having come to the room that is right now filled with ice and snow. He quickly looks around the room hoping to spot the one he knows to be responsible for this phenomenon. “Raven Wolf’s Chieftain is here.”

Naida remains silent, there is no way she will be able to convince more to turn back after finding this.

Mort walks up to the large icicle that has broken through the floor, a piece of the shard is filled with blood, it is clear that someone has be wounded very badly, some kind of fight has taken place here.

A voice calls out from the hole that lead towards the basement of the museum, Eve is trying to get the attention of anyone that might be able to hear her. “Hey!! Is anyone up there!? What the heck is going on up there!? Seriously if someone doesn’t get me out of here right now I’m going to… well I don’t know what I’ll do but you won’t like it!!”

Mort’s search is interrupted when his phone begins to ring, he lets out a crazy growl as he answers it, while still remaining vigilant. “Captain Louis Mort here.”

“Captain, the Avian military has sent a request for you to bring Miss Nadia Kelpie to their headquarters, apparently her boyfriend has been hospitalized and they want here there immediately.”

Mort looks back towards Naida. “Very well, but first I need you to contact General Dmitri. Have him send his troops to the Cadrey Museum and the surrounding area. I found Lockheart and evidence that our target from Raven Wolf has been here.”

“Right away sir.”

Mort hangs up his phone making his way back to Naida explaining the situation. “Someone is being sent to deal with this mess, for now you and I are to go to the avian fleet, apparently something has happened to your boyfriend.”

Naida looks to the side, having suspected something of this sort after seeing that Eve and her father have been allowed home. “I see… we should go see him as soon as we can then.”

*******


Teddy opens his eyes, the wolf quickly sits up and looks around him, he is back within the small room he was being held in within the True Blood’s power facility.

He gets to his feet walking over to the door of his room, calling out. “Is anyone out there?”

He waits for a response not getting any. He looks down to the electronic lock on his room, he lifts his hand and holds it next to the lock, Teddy takes a deep breath and trying to focus himself. “Alright… just do it like I did in Yula’s vision…” He clenches his teeth and nothing happens, he continues to talk to himself as to raise his motivation. “Come on Teddy, no doubts, if I doubt even for a moment that I can’t do this I won’t be able to! This is something I can do, something I can control, something that will get me out of here and back to Iuana.”

A small flash lights the room up for a moment, Teddy smiles as he watches small bolts of electricity start to form around his hand. He places his hand upon the controls and sparks fly and pops sounds as the electricity runs through the system, the door slides open just a few inches right before a loud thunderous clap sounds before the lights flash out and the hum of the generator to this area dies, filling the building in both silence and darkness.

Teddy fits his hand between the opening in the door, slowly pushing it open enough for him to get through. He begins making his way through the dark hall, the dim emergency backup lights that line the floor of the hall are the only thing to light his way.

He continues making his way down the hall, the place is empty with no one anywhere, it is probably late in the night at the moment, it is hard for Teddy to tell while both locked in that room and inside Yula’s vision.

The hall he is in divides and Teddy is not sure of where to go from here, everything looks the same. He tries to remember what halls he has walked down when he had first been brought here, he is unable to recall.

“Hey!” A light is shown in Teddy’s face, the wolf turns in the direction it is coming from to spot a True Blood shinning a flashlight in his direction. “Are you responsible for the surge?”

Teddy tries to shield the light from his face while the True Blood begins to approach him. “You need to get back into that room before somebody sees you.”

Teddy turns from him as he quickly starts running down one of the halls that the man that had found him isn't blocking, the man with the flashlight calls after him. “Hey!! Hey come back here!!” He reaches for a communication device on him before giving chase. “Contact Blue, we have a problem!”

Teddy blindly makes his way down the halls, he randomly chooses halls to go down in hopes that one of would lead him out of this facility, with most of the workers having gone home for the night this is a better time than any to get out of this place.

He stops for a moment realizing something, the area around him is starting to get warm from heat, the cooling system for the area he is in has gone down with the power. He begins moving forward once more, the generators are outside of this facility, the closer to the heat he gets the closer to the exit he becomes.

Teddy continues to make his way down the empty halls, the heat gets more and more intolerable the further he goes.

Teddy lies on the ground exhausted, the wolf lets out heavy breaths as he looks at the sky above him. “I don’t understand…” He turns his head to Yula who is sitting on the ground near him, he is currently in a vision that this black wolf is having. “How can I get tired when my body isn’t here? This is a vision… a spiritual world right?”

Yula hums to himself as he tilts his head. “I don’t know… I’m still new at all this spiritual guidance stuff, remember?”

Aither speaks up to answer. “Just as you can strain and tire your body you can also do so with your spirit, that’s why people go on spiritual retreats, meditate or even just go on vacation.”

Teddy sits up as he looks to the area around him, though he had been able to conjure the lightning in Yula’s vision he is still having issues with controlling it, he is unable to use it as a weapon or means of defence like the other sources can, his gaze soon falls to Aither as he begins to question him. “Was it this difficult for you when you first tried to control your abilities?”

Aither looks back to him. “Of course not, I was a natural, and a talented one at that.” He sighs as he thinks back to the other sources. “The others were much like you, it was something that didn’t come natural, that’s why they came seeking me and my instruction after all.” He grins as he thinks back. “Shiya was the fastest to learn, he had such strong determination and big goals back then.”

Teddy seems interested in this. “How did he learn so fast compared to the others?”

Aither chuckles at the question, he remembers it like it was yesterday. “To put it simply he was love sick over a girl. His drive had to be strong so that he could win her trials and be with her made him a quick learner.” He lets out a fond laugh. “It was as charming as some of those old fairytales you hear as a kid.”

Yula smiles as he looks back to Teddy. “Hey that sounds like you and Iuana! That means you’ll be able to learn this quickly too!”

Teddy frowns, it is not exactly the same. “But I already won Iuana’s trials.”

Yula stares back at him. “Yeah, but you’re not with her right now are you?” Teddy lowers his head while Yula continues to explain. “This is like the same thing right? If you don’t get stronger you might never see here again. You’ll lose her.”

Teddy’s gaze turns to the ground, that thought has kept him up many a night since being collected by the True Bloods.

Yula continues to explain what he thinks should be obvious. “If you don’t learn how to do this you’re never going to see her or anyone else you love again. You know that right?”

Teddy gets to his feet, a determined look is now on his face. Yula is right, being able to control these new found powers is the key, his turning point, the only way be would be able to have some kind of chance of escaping his current situation and getting back to Iuana. He doesn't know why he didn’t realize it sooner, it isso obvious. The days of being locked away with hope growing smaller and smaller having made him blind to something that should have always been clear.

Teddy lets out a loud battle cry as the skies rapidly begin to grow dark, violent flashes of light dance through the air and hitting the ground around him.

Yula laughes happily as he beings clapping his hands. “Teddy you’re doing great!!”

Teddy throws his arm forward, the bolts of lightning twist and bend in the direction that he has signalled it to go in. It listens to his command just as Aither had said it would.

“I can do this… I can get out of the fortress… I’m going home.”


A metal door flies off of its hinges when a large bolt of lightning hits and it and blows it back, Teddy walks through the opening he created and out into area that os red from the heat of the generators that fills the area. “I’m going home.”

He spots the oversized open elevator that has taken him down to this area running over and getting on it, stopping next to the controls and looking them over, it looks to still have power to it, he pulls on a break lever to unlock the platform then activates the controls just as he had seen the True Bloods do to get him down here, the elevator jolts as the warning lights and sirens begin to sound and flash to signal to workers it’s activation, the elevator begins to move shortly after, raising up and taking him back to the surface.

Teddy turns his head up looking towards the exit that is still so far away, the alarm on the elevator is loud and capable of catching all kinds of attention, it is very likely that Teddy would have all kinds of trouble to face once he reaches the top.

He looks down to his hands, though he has new abilities he still can't take on huge groups of enemy. If the welcoming party is too large he can very well be caught again. Still, it is better to try than to not try at all, at the very least he doesn't have to fear death, and as a source the True Bloods certainly wante to keep him alive, so they would be careful not to kill him, hurting him and confining him again though they are certainly still capable of.

The lift’s ascent continues, the minutes that pass feel long, the heat created by the power generators below him gets less sweltering the closer to the entrance he gets, until he can not feel the heat from them at all. Soon the lift arrives at the top level, the platform lets out another jolt as it comes to a stop.

Teddy frowns as he looks around him, just as he had expected many soldiers already have started to gather and collect at the lift, they draw their weapons and aiming at Teddy as soon as they see him.

Teddy holds his hand up, sparks starts to form in the palm of his hand, he does not have any other choice but to try and fight his way through them if he wants to escape.

He is about to leap forward to attack but is stopped when a familiar cocky voice speaks up to get his attention. “You’re going to start a war if you do that.”

Teddy stops in his tracks as he looks around him for the source of the voice. “Magellan?” A confused look fills his face when he is unable to spot him anywhere, Teddy lets out a surprised gasp when someone grabs onto him, Teddy looks back to try and see who it is only to not only not spot anyone, but to catch sight of his own figure beginning to vanish. “What!?”

The soldier all let out surprised shouts when they see their target vanish from their sight, one of the soldiers looks back to the other. “We need a smoke bomb up here!”

The soldiers that had such a tool equipped moves forward, the one to arrive first throwing the smoke bomb he had forward, a huge cloud of smoke fills the area, yet not revealing the location of any unseen figures. “He’s already gone…”

*******


Aither opens his eyes waking from his sleep, he looks at his surroundings to find that he is now in what looks like a hospital room. He tries to push himself but finds himself unable to so do, Aither looks down to his arms to see his wrists handcuffed to the hospital bed that he is in.

He then looks next to his bedside to find a avian soldier staring at him a stern and unhappy look on his face, there are several members of this military currently in the room with him.

Aither lets out a sigh as his head falls back against the pillow it had before been resting on. “I expected as much…”

The solder closest to him turns to the soldiers closest to the door of the room. “One of you get the doctor, the other inform General Jovina and General Bourne that he’s awake.”

Aither shakes his head, if he is being treated like this it is no doubt because they have finally found out that he is the person that they are looking for. “Jovina… it’ll be a shame to snuff out another member of that family… especially with this Jovina is such a pretty young lady.”

“That’s enough!”

Aither falls silent as he lies still in wait, he knew since realizing Yula had brought him into a vision that the chances of being caught were high, after all the spirits had seen that under no other circumstances would both he and Teddy be able to meet.

Before long Jovina and Bourne both enter the room, Bourne stands by the doorway while Jovina approaches the side of the bed that Aither right now lies in, she holds her arm over the bed and dangles the crystal for him to see.

Aither stares at the crystal, turning towards Jovina and looks at her. “What did it show you?”

Jovina responds in a bitter tone of voice. “It showed me you killing my father.”

Aither looks back to the crystal as he shakes his head. “My memories weren’t even nice enough to show you something less traumatizing, how ungentlemanly of them.”

“Do you think this situation is funny?”

“I don’t find anything about being caught and chained up funny, I just finished lecturing someone for getting caught and locked up you know, so it a little bit frustrating to find myself in a similar situation when I wake up.”

Jovina begins to question him. “You were asleep, there was no one here talking to you.”

Aither looks over to her. “So then, what do you expect to do with me now that you have me?”

Jovina turns away from him not giving him an answer to his question, she is now speaking to Bourne. “I have my target. Yours should show up soon.” She turns to her soldiers in the room. “Get him ready for transport, I’ll be calling more soldiers to help in the task of taking him to my fleet.”

Aither calls out to Jovina before she leaves the room. “Hey, I need that back.” Jovina looks down to the crystal in her hands, its the only thing that he can be talking about. “It’s not dangerous, but I’m dangerous without it. I lose control over the source if I go without it long enough, it would be a scenario that no one wants.” He grins at her. “Ebon warned you about that didn’t he? If he didn’t then he should have.”

Jovina throws the crystal back to Aither, it lands on his chest and comes to a rest there, Jovina leaves the room, her pace is quick as she signals to one of the soldiers to come to her side, a very angry tone in her voice. “Contact General Dmitri and tell him I’m on my way to see him.”

She clenches her teeth, the wind source had said Dmitri’s first name and that he is working with them. “Dmitri knew who the wind source was this entire time!”

*******


Naida stares out of the window of the vehicle she is in, she heads toward the military base to respond to the summon she has received. She lets out a heavy sigh as she closes her eyes hanging her head.

Mort catches onto her uneasiness, he tries to reassure her that everything would be fine. “I’m sure your boyfriend is alright. No need to look so worried.”

Naida gives him a weak smile as she looks back to him. “If only I could believe that, he causes all kinds of trouble, I told you that didn’t I?”

“Just what kind of trouble could he have possibly caused?”

“I have a general idea.” She contacts the driver. “I know this neighbourhood, take a right and stop at the third building in, I want to make a stop at my friend’s house before we go to the military base.”

The driver responds to her command. “Of course Miss. Kelpie.”

Mort seems a little confused. “I would think you would be in a hurry considering that you’re so worried about him.”

Naida nods his head. “Yes… and as much as I am worried about him I must also worry about myself.”

The car comes to a stop, both Naida and Mort open the door and make their way outside, the two walk towards the building that Naida had told the driver to stop in front of, Naida unlocks the door and enters it.

Mort looks around him curiously, it looks almost condemned. “You have a friend that lives here?”

“Well, not live… currently staying here I suppose.” She opens a door waving in a greeting as she calls out to two lynx’s who are right now working on computers. “Evening Marty, Luka.”

Marty doesn’t look away from his screen, Luka though looks back, a rather concerned look on his face when she sees the company Naida currently has with her. “What are you doing bringing him here!?”

Naida looks the two over. “You should pack up and leave. Tell Shanira that I appoligize and will make it up to her later.”

Mort recognizes the name. “Shanira? Bernard Kyri’s wife?!”

Naida nods her head yes. “That’s her.” She opens a door in front of her, motioning for Mort to follow her inside. “I have a favour to ask you.”

Mort walks towards the room, he falls speechless when he sees who it is that is currently being trapped inside of it, the black cat that lies on the floor is one of the Super Soldiers that he has been trying to locate once more. “Berights…”

Naida looks back to him. “I’ve been kind enough to return your friend to you, so do you think that in return you can look the other way and allow me to escape? I do not want to end up imprisoned like Aither has found himself.”

Raven Wolf - 05 - The Abandoned - Chapter 15
Raven Wolf - 05 - The Abandoned - Chapter 17
Book 5 in the Raven Wolf series.

Due to human negligence the world as we know it has ended and been reborn. The animal spirits that guide man giving them the forms of animals so that they would be able to survive in this new wilderness. Though now carrying the form of beasts man has not forgotten the place they once had, as an existence greater then just what nature wanted of them, an existence above all.

Those that worked to gain their humanity are known as domestics, while those who wished to follow the rolls the spirits had given them were known as wilds. Both groups grew arrogant and hateful of one another, the wilds saw the domestics as selfish monsters, for they were returning to the ways that had once destroyed the world, while the domestics saw the wilds as primitive beings afraid of progress, they no better than wild animals.

The raven and the wolf spirits grew tired of the destruction and fighting, and sided with the wilds in their ideals, the domestics only capable of further destroying nature. In their anger they marked a tribe of wilds with a curse, they being removed from the sacred circle of life, unable to hunt or grow their own food, their souls never able to move on while their bodies are unable to return to the earth when they died. The curse upon them only broken once the domestics are gone once and for all. The cursed tribe now known to all by the name of the spirits whom cursed them. ‘Raven Wolf'


Note: Was gonna upload this yesterday, but the file I got from my editor wouldn't open because he saved it in the wrong file format. So I had to wait for him to be able to send it to me again =x.

Interesting chapter...wasn't expecting Mort to be bribed to let Nadia go
but then again you haven't exactly painted him as one of the main antagonists.
Aither seems really calm about his imprisonment.Not the first time he woke up in chains?

Since being introduced to the project Mort has a soft spot for the Super Soldiers, especially in concerns to their well being. He feels responsible for them and certainly does a lot for them, most notably being Zack's guardian and putting up with Alistair.

As for Aither, he expected that he would be in a situation like this, and though he has been captive before it never ended up lasting long, so he's pretty confident about not having to be like this for very long.

Chapter 17 should be up on the site

Edit: Just noticed that I put the chapter in the wrong pool (comic instead of novel) maybe that is why you were having trouble finding it =)
