The large dragon looked to Ruyna "Silence Hatching! I am older then the earth you stand on, do not prattle or parlay with me!" he said as the dragon was suddnly taken on a fit of coughing. "
"Why is this beast so old, I thought dragons were Immortal"
"We are only Immortal so long as we have a rider! and it has been nearly two hundred years since i lost mine, Now you two tell your riders my words.!" Servatos only nodded, informing Walsh on what has already been said, also making comment about staying silent.
"Firstly! you are Immortal only as long as you have a rider, and they will also inherent your immortality! As well as your power. The riders themselves are linked as the dragons are as well, able to reach into each others minds to communicate, just as dragon and rider communicate." The dragon then went into another fit of coughs before clearing his throat.
"As you are you are unfit to fight the Underdrake, As I understand out old Fort is still alive and well, guarded by our spells still.you must seek out this place, ask the pirates for help." he was laboring with each word he spoke but he kept on, "The leader of the underdrake, can not be killed, his heart has been cut out and as long as his heart is safe, neither dragon nor man can die. Find his heart and end his life!" the dragon started to turn to go back into his lair, and soon to be tomb. "And heed this, you two will face the same corruption that turned our breathern against us" With more coughing the large beast was descending back into his home.
"Aye, he be a scary one" Servatos said shivering to add emphasis. Walsh then looked to Lyna he reached out, the way he would reach out to Servatos but instead to her Hello, anyone home? looking at her to see if it worked or not. "And meh thinks he was talkin 'bout the Pirate haven! oh it be a grand place! I think you would love it"
"And meh thinks he was talkin 'bout the Pirate haven! oh it be a grand place! I think you would love it".
Runya smiled at this "I have never been , but with a name like that I can only imagine it would be Heaven" She replied to him. Welcome to my humble abode. So I guess we know our course it will truly be interesting to ride along side a pirate at sea Lyna answered in her head looking back over to him hopeful he got her message. Lyna contemplated the idea of being Aboard his ship. More time with him she wouldn't mind, but the entire crew she was less sure about. They were unknown and though Walsh was more of a gentlemen rogue she was unaware of their intentions. Walsh would stop them from doing to absence when he was around, but a captain is not always around. Runya felt Lyna's fear and went straight into Lyna's head. 'What is wrong my dear' Runya asked. 'Nothing important at the moment' Lyna replied. ' Tell me when you are ready but there is nothing that I can not scare away do remember this' Runya anwsered back leaving Lyna to her own thoughts. Lyna smiled slightly. Would her dragon never stop being her mother.
"Well, at least for now they should both fit into the hold of my ship, but it will take several months to return to Torga. With their rate of growth, they won't be able to fit on the ship at all." he said looking at the two. "Aye let us just fly home then Cap'em!" Servatos suggested as Walsh shook his head "no my dear, there are no stops on the way, you wouldn't be able to fly that far. The ship will be fine" he said patting Servatos nose. "now my lady, let us be off, If memory serves you are to warm my bed tonight" he said smiling to lyna as Servatos looked over to Ruyna "I don't understand why he just don't start a fire if he is so worried about the cold!" Walsh climbed on to his back "My dear, we will land at the edge of the forest and return to town, I want you and Ruyna to return to the ship while it is still dark. You two will be sleeping in the cargo hold tonight, and then we can set sail in the morning." "Aye aye cap'em" the young dragon responded smiling.
It was then they saw it, the night sky lit up as bright as day. Servatos darted off for the hole they made in the door, and Walsh was soon after, skidding to a halt they saw it, a mass army was marching down onto the town. "Lyna! The town is under attack, they found us!" he said hopping onto servatos' back "hurry!" he said turning around to Lyna.
"I don't understand why he just don't start a fire if he is so worried about the cold!".
"I'll be glad to light a fire under him if he really does require what he asks"Runya growled."Lyna! The town is under attack, they found us!" he said hopping onto servatos' back "hurry!" he said turning around to Lyna. Lyna quickly ran up to Runya grabbing her other Fire whip before sitting herself down. Lyna held herself low on the dragon as Runya bolted forward then jumped into the air. Runya flew quickly up to Servatos and held at his pace though they followed a bit to far behind. Servatos and Walsh were fading away and blending into the night. Lyna held herself on Runya with her legs and raised herself up off the dragon. Her fire whips ablaze and flying through the air along with the fact she was riding Runya made Lyna a sight to see. Where do we go?. Lyna cracked her whips again an easy way to inform Runya to speed up and catch up with Servatos knowing full well that Runya could see everything clear as day. Once they caught up Lyna was glad to know she could see Walsh again. Who found us, the under drake?
Walsh was busy, though rowdy and some times unmanageable, the pirates were well trained, all ready the ship was getting ready to go under way. Over the town now Servatos could look down to the streets, the majority of the crew was still in the town and fighting there way to the ship "Aye Cap'em we need to help em!" he said and suddenly they were going down into a dive, dropping quickly, because they foresaw fighting the two had already trained on maneuvers. They Pirates and soldiers were mixed in melee, Breath weapons couldn't be used with out harming both side. Servatos quickly turned up garbing two Underdrake soldiers with his fore paws and reared up flinging them high into the sky, it was at this time Walsh lept from his back and landed on the ground in a crotch. Now Servatos flying was unrestricted. The dragon flew finding a group of soldiers away from anybody, and with a roar down to them they all looked up ready to fight, but once they saw the earth shaking they ran, getting caught in the Might Roar of Servatos they all screamed, their eyes and ears bleeding as they coughed up blood and dropped to the ground. There insides destroyed by the intense sound. Walsh had his rapier out and stood in a fencing stance, surrounded by his pirates, "TO me my Brothers!" he shouted as they two groups collided, A soldier brought down a broad sword, with Walsh met with his blade, easily parring the blow and slashing the man's arm pit where his armor was week, another blow came and he parried, causing him to spin some, and from his arm behind his back he pulled out the long dirk and stabbed it into his back, under the armor to sever his spine. A pirate to his right was stabbed through the chest as Walsh stabbed his assailant in the through with the dirk before having to raise his Rapier to deflect another blow, they were slowly advancing through the town. A black shadow flew over head and Soon servatos was at the rear of the solders, claws slashing and teeth comping, the they were turning to face him and he took flight once more moving to pick off patrols and help pirates make it to the main group. Walsh reached out to Lyna" Stay safe my lady! if you cant help my men to the dragons wing!"
Lyna kept a straight face with his message. She had two choices hide and run away again or fight a villain she probably wasn't ready for. Runya and her had fought groups of bandits, but never had she killed a man. She had injured them and burned them, knocked them out even. She had never killed. Lyna was to determind she wasn't going to be the helpless damsel. She had played that part before and she would not play it again. 'Drop down Runya' Lyna told her. 'Are you sure Lyna' Runya asked her circling the battlefield. 'I'm positive'. Runya dropped to the ground two under drake solders running toward her. Lyna grabbed both of them around the neck with her whips. They let out seering screams of pain as Lyna pulled harder choking the men. Lyna cringed at the sight before realizing she was still in the heat of battle. Another under drake solider was already on her raising his sword behind her back. Lyna spun around and raised the hilt of her whip to stop the long sword. With the mans now raised arms Lyna saw an open spot on him with no armor. She whipped his arm bit swiftly and the man recoiled in pain. Lyna circled her whip around his sword and pulled it clean out of his hands. The thrown sword implaied it's self in another soilders chest. How many are there?

Walsh kept fighting with his Pirates, Parry and slash, parry and stab. It seemed to never end, but soon the docks were in sight as Servatos came down and cleared the way before he took off into the air again, the Pirates rushed the gap as the group he had boarded "Set sail!" he shouted as they all shouted Aye aye back and they were unting the mooring lines, lowering the sails as they started to move. Walsh stayed on the dock Servatos to me, we need to help any more. Most of the pirates had manged to meet up with the major group but a few were still in the town fighting. Soon the beast landed on the dock behind him and he slipped up on his back and they were in the air. From this view he could see the mass of the army, marching down still "My word..." he said as he could see flashing lights of Lyna's fire whips "Lyna I told you to get to safety! the ship is already under way." He reached out to her as the dragon swooped down roaring into a group of Soldiers as they all were thrown back and here insides liquefied. A small band of pirates ran past them as they took off once more looking for more "get to the docks, I need Ruyna to ferry the rest of my men to the boat, servatos well be there to help her soon." he said as he found the last of his men, Servtos flew over head and landed crushing a pair as his tail whipped sending one flying into a near by building, more soldiers "Aye to the Cap'em!" the pirates shouted, trapping the soldiers between them and Servatos with Walsh. They quickly ended the group as they started to move through the streets, they came upon more soldiers and now they were the ones trapped "Servatos cover our exit then to the docks my dear" Servatos nodded as his roads into a building, then the one across the street. THe old wooden buildings shook and crumbled, the wood splentering as they fell down into the street behind the pirates as they rushed the group and Servatos took to the air going to the docks and landing, A pirate climbed onto his back as he grabbed two more and flew to the ship to drop them off before returning.
"Lyna I told you to get to safety! the ship is already under way."
Lyna turned to the sound of his voice only to find no one there, her focus being drawn away from the initial battle. A solider slashed his sword behind her and deepen the previous wound on her leg. Lyna let out a sound of pain and kicked the sword out of the soldiers hand. She grabbed it for her own and stabbed the solider brutally. The sword was to heavy for her to completely lift and it weighed her down. She dragged it doing her best to run to the ship. Runya searched along the crowd finding pirates and burning all soldiers around them. She would pick them up in pairs of two or three. The ride for Runya was different the pirates were heavier then she was used to and it slowed her usually quick flying. Lyna was almost to the boat when a couple soldiers surrounded her. She used the large sword to the best of her ability whilst holding the two fire whips. Lyna killed one easily choking him with a fire whip. She pulled the dead body over her it crashing into another three soldiers. Lyna dropped the heavy blade and ran. A solider slashed her arm leaving a deep cut. Lyna could take no more then was engulfed in rage. She grabbed two soldiers by the legs and burned their skin then chucked them with her whip into the crowd their bodies still engulfed in flame. Spinning the whips all around her she whipped at other soldiers faces. Tearing their skin and them catching in flames. Some sound Lyna couldn't tell the origin of pulled her out of her rage like state and brought her back to sense. She stopped the useless killing and headed again to the ship this time making it aboard her whips extinguished.

As Lyna got to the ship some of the men walked up to her "Aye, she be wounded, take her below to the doc" as several helped her walk down below the decks of the ship. Once in the small medical room, which was now over crowded with pirates as one blood soaked man walked up "Hello, My name is Reynolds, please be patient i have some critical patients." Walsh was to the docks with the last of his crew when he heard it, A terrible rawer sounded as a massive dragon flew over the horizon. Servatos stopped some looking at the massive creature as it was coming towards them, bright green the creature flew as he rawered again, this time the winds picked up as the sky started to thunder down. "By the sea goddess" Walsh murmurer as Servatos started back to ferrying the reaming hand full, Walsh all the remained on shore as the ship was sailing further and further from land. "Cap'em, lets take em down!" "Ruyna lets go!" Servatos said as Walsh shouted, using his power to amplify so the two could hear "No, to the ship, that creature will kill you easily" Servatos turned and landed on the dock as Walsh hoped on. "we can't out run that!" he said looking back as it was getting closer. That is when it happened. Another large dragon collided with it, and with a flurry of claws they crashed into the ground rolling around. Servatos landed on the deck of the ship causing it to shake, "Open the holds!" walsh shouted as the crew started to open up the ship holds and servatos crawled down. "The lass be heart cap'em" One his crew told him "we took her to Reynolds" Walsh nodded, he was concerned, but he had to get this ship away "Full sails and man the ores!" Port holes opened along the boat as ores came out of them and there was a drum beat from below decks as they started to row in unison.
Runya landed on the ship and slipped into the hold with Servatos. She breathed slightly heavy never having to be in these situations made her worry slightly. Lyna was hurt, but she did her best to hide it. She grunted slightly as the pirates picked her up. She looked her leg and arm over realizing she was more hurt then she thought she was. "Hello, My name is Reynolds, please be patient i have some critical patients.". " I'm fine pay me no heed" Lyna replied kindly catching her breath. She looked around and found a bit of clean cloth. She took the cloth and pressed it against her arm. She knew a bit about medical having to close wounds herself before. She clenched her teeth so not to let out any sounds of pain and held the wound tightly. Though the blood didn't stop it did slow slightly. Runya licked a scratch she had got from one of the soldiers blade.' Lyna are you alright' Runya asked calmly her mothering tone returning. ' I got some scratches, but I'll be fine Runya do not worry' Lyna told her. Runya knew better then to believe Lyna's words. She also knew better then to push Lyna on the fact that she was actually hurt. Lyna always wanted to be the strong one. She didn't want to be seen as small or someone who always needed help.she wanted to be a leader someone that everyone looked up to. A woman that all girls could envy and make all the men gape. Her strive was perfection. Runya smirked slightly at the thought of Lyna a perfect imperfection in her mind.
