    This short thin girl wandered confused into the borderlands. She didn’t know if she had been taking the wrong turn somewhrere, but she knew she had to get away from the old world, the world that was still hunting her down.
    Her old wornout gown wasn’t a keep or much of a comfort, but it was the only thing she had except her exhausted body. “I’ll… make it…” She whispered to herself, a little kick to keep herself on her feet. “If not… they will… be back…” She mumbled even lower, barely noticable for anyone but herself.

    As she kept her wander, not knowing what dangers laid ahead of her, she wrapped her stick thin arms around her fragile body, hoping to create and keep some warmth that was slowly leaving her body. She could somehow feel the ground shaking, something was approaching her. Not quickly, and neither too slow not to be a hunter. All she knew was that she was being watched by someone, or something.

      Serena had wandered off from the lady she ran into, and walked further into the borderlands. However, as she walked, the snow started to stop, and something loud started to approach. “Oh, that doesn’t sound good.” She whispered, as she kept hold of the Exceed within her arms. “We best hurry.” She started to run, but as she did, she noticed another little girl, who also appeared to be lost. “I best warn her.”

      She kept on her walking. She couldn’t run or stop because her body was screaming at her to keep on going. “Ugh..” She mumbled as her body started to shiver. The cold had already gotten to her feet which were slowly turning more and more blue by the hours.
      She could still feel through her legs, for now, and she could feel something not too far from her. The feeling she got off of the person didn’t seem evil, or dangerous. But she knew these feelings could lie easily when she was in the state she was in right now.

      Serena finally reached the girl and huffed. “W-We need to r-run. S-Something’s coming!” She didn’t want to fight the creature, and now seeing the girl realised that she couldn’t either, not in her condition.

      The girl jumped seeing someone already by her side, her vision was blurry so she couldn’t really see the other person, just hear her.
      “I… can’t..” The girl mumbled low, barely able to speak. “I don’t… have that much… strength” She explained to her before another cold gust of wind blow from behind, which got her to shiver.
      She was in no state to run or fight, yet she kept on walking in the same pace, hoping and praying inside her head that the creature watching her and approaching them both, would go away or loose sight of them.

      Serena looked at the cat in her arms. “Let me help!” The cat spoke. “I can fly you and Serena is quite a fast runner.” The cat flew up out of Serena’s arms, and near to the girl. “My name’s Freya.” Serena looked behind her. “We best hurry up Freya. Something is coming.”

      The girl shook her head still walking as she could feel the monster coming closer and closer. “I… don’t want… to be… a bother.” She mumbled shaking her head from side to side.
      With a slight stumble she fell to her knees, coughing as air was pushed out of her lungs by the impact with the ground.
      With the little strenght she had left, she tried to get back on her feet, now realizing that the monster hunting them is at least twice or thrice her size. She turned her little head to look back at the four legged monster that stopped several meters away from them, staring at them with a blood lust and hunger in its eyes.
      The monster could be related to an over grown wolf, but the fur was double as thick, and it’s eyes glowling deep red. The girl could see how big it’s paws was, now knowing why she felt the ground shake everytime it moved. This didn’t look good for her at all.

        * Being in the borderlands already the one known as the Twinblade master heard some commotion , he left Hei’s side knowing she can handle it till he got the girl’s to safety. Looked at his map , * By the look of things and the noise they should be in this direction. * Speeds up taking to get to them hearing the growl. * Hang in there i am on my way . * Finally appears by her side seeing the other girl was safe for now with  the cat in the air. focused his attention to the monster in front of him making an attempt to quickly kill it if possible. * Please go while i kill this thing.* hands her the map. motioning the cat to come down and take them to the hideout so they could get  food and water, most of all much needed rest. Knowing they would worry about him the male was more worried about them, mostly the one that feel from being dehydrated.* Will one of you be able to carry her? I don’t think she will be able to make it on her own . * Attempts more attacks on the creature keeping it’s attention on him and not the girls.* If one of you can please do and go now. I will take care of this and meet you at the hideout.

        Serena was surprised to see the man coming to help them. Freya had lifted the girl into the air, and looked down. “Serena you lead the way with the map. Thank you mister!” Freya shouted down to the male. “Okay Freya, and yeah, thanks mister. Please be careful!” She started to run, as she shouted the latter back towards him. “This way Freya!” She ran towards the hideout, with Freya flying behind, holding Mai in her arms.

        She laid over the cats back, unable to move a muscle as all of her strength faded out. “how?” She mumbled low to herself, barely getting a visual of the man whom she heard the voice of.
        Behind his voice she could hear the wolf like creatures growl as it sees its meal moving away. With a warning like stomp it started to bark in a loud and rather sharp tone, hoping to stop the cat from moving and escaping with its dinner.
        As it took another giant step, making the ground beneath him shake, it now noticed the man in front of him and growled low from deep within its throat, flashings its teeth in a warning before leaping slightly into the air and charging against the man, now fully determined to get some food.

      Serena keeps running, while following the map in her hands. “It shouldn’t be too much further.” She huffs as she keeps running. Freya kept flying behind her. “Keep going Serena. We need to make it, the girl isn’t holding up too well!”

      The wolf whine at the blades compact, closing it’s eyes for a moment before opening it’s eyes and growling even louder. It crouched down before charging again, this time biting after the man, hoping to do as much damage as it could to it’s dinner.
      With it’s jaw open it gave the man another scratch with its teeth, but avoiding direct contact due to the man’s blades, it immediately knows it has done a grave mistake by coming this close to it’s enemy and starts whining in hope to distracts its foe.

      The girls kept her position on the cat, breathing slowly she tried her best to keep herself awake. But the comforts of the fur, and the heat the cat projected from it’s body, was enough to make her sleepy and unable to stay conciouss.

        * Noticed he made contact enough to damage it was a success . no time to celebrate that now i must finish him off quickly some kind of way. winched at the pain from the other scratch from the creatures teeth. tried to remain tough not letting his enemy see the weakness that two scratches may have caused. This is not going like i thought time to do something different to make a greater wound on it.* Swings both blades together to protect himself from anymore wounds. I can do this i know i can. he said to himself.*

        At the blades touch the wolf starts to howl a sad and painfilled howl. It stepped back, knowing that if it continued it would just be more wounded and eventually die. Without hesitation the wolf jumped up in the air and tried to stomp on the man below him, hoping to at least do a bit more damage so that it could eventually kill its prey or run away with it’s life still intact.

        * could see now he was wearing it down as the attacks went on, not faltering or backing down he had one goal make it back to the girls so he can get them to the hideout if they didn’t already, and if they had to get them food and water along with medical attention if needed. Gave the creature the impression that his attack worked but the truth was he moved out the way at the last moment. Came back quickly with another attack hoping that he could more damage than just little scratches his blades could do so much more. { I could so much more with my blades just need to wear him down first.} *Mutters to himself not to give his strategy away.*

        The howl the wolf now gave, would be an indicator that it was now it’s time to give up. The blow the man had given him, was straight into his stomach, and another was to it’s front paws. It was already hard for the wolf to move, and as it now saw the blades cut it’s other leg it slowly fell to the ground whimpering as it knew it was now the end. “awoo~” it both howled and whined closing it eyes slowly, hoping that the man would finish it off quickly so it wouldn’t suffer too bad.

      * Feeling a bit of remorse for the creature just for a quick second, just as quickly the thought entered his mind it was gone knowing he could have been a meal for the wolf like creature . Makes the final blow that would put it out of it’s misery. it was like a connection to it was formed between him and the creature now in it’s final moments. he knew just what it was feeling unable at the moment to know why or how.*

      Serena and Freya finally arrived at what appeared to be some sort of hideout with the girl. “I hope the man makes it back like he said.” Serena looked back at the way they had come, hoping to see a glimpse of the man coming right behind them. Freya flew down low enough to let the girl gently land on the ground, before sitting next to her side, as she wanted to make sure the girl was still with them. “I hope she’s okay.” Serena knelt next to Freya and the girl worried about her and the man.

      The wolf took it’s last breath, letting its oponen watch its few happy memories through a mind link it had created when he touched the oponent with its teeth. It wasn’t a really special memory, it was when he had come over to the new world, and seen how happy people were, and how they were slowly forming a good and stable community. But the memory also included pain, as he was chased away after accidentally eating a human when he was out and hunting. With a last whimper, the final air left its lungs, its eyes rolled back and stopped moving at all. There were no death cramps, cause the body had already stiffened, so instead it started smuldering into small pieces and returning to the ground where it belonged.

      The girl laid against the cat, still not moving but seemingly in a peacefull state. Somehow her body was charging, stealing a bit of the cats energy just so it could regain some itself. With a heavy sigh, the girl slightly smiled in her dream, she didn’t know anything that happened outside of her dream, she only knew that in her dream, she could see her parents and her old family, all waiting for her with a warm smile.
