Dauġa took a spot on the ground next to skinner. Starring the the man in front of him, and more of starring at the blood running at his ankle.

We are going to be traveling with this little band of misfits so lets get something straight. You can pick a fight with me, whatever. But, if you pick a fight with any of them again, I'll let Dauoa do the talking next time.And if you think I'm bad, this kid can turn into a seven foot monster that would gladly eat you".

Dauġa's head whipped around to took at skinner. They were going with the group, why? This was news to him. Dauoa leeched forward when a slap sounded and pain radiated from his back. A low growl emanated from his as a warning. He wasnt crazed yet and that was painful.

"Yes but skinner, you wont let me eat anyone. Remember."

"I don't think we have been introduced. My name is Skinner and this is Dauoa. Daoua...have I been saying it right?" He had moved right on to something else.

Dauġa leaned back, laying down on the ground. Spreading out he turned his back to skinner after he shuffled a little closer amd got comfortable.

"It's close enough. Technically its pronounced day-hla. But it will do." Even it he was facing away from skinner he still kept a blue eye trained on shane and the bleeding of his ankle.

If only skinner would let him eat him.

----

"Uh...where's your bathroom?" Eskia jumped as rain and bec came through the front door. Bec and rain looked a little worst for wear.

" Through the kitchen, theres a door on the left just out of sight. If I may ask what happened. " Eskia didnt have to wait long for a answer.

"Shane"that was all rain said. It was all he would have to say, he was sure eskia would understand.

Pulling bec into the bathroom rain started a little water to running and easied bec to a small seat.

"You ok, sorry I should have been paying attention."

Getting a small cloth he dunked it in the water to get it wet. Gently holding it to becs face it made him remember how much aaron liked to have his face cleaned. It didnt matter if there was nothing on it, he would find something to splash on it just so rain would clean him up.

Bec nodded to Eskia, "Thank you" he said before vanishing deeper into the house. He really wasn't in the mood to explain what happened. He just wanted to get cleaned up and try to forget the whole thing. She was grateful when Rain explained what happened in her absence.

When Bec entered the bathroom he froze in front of the sink. He was staring at himself in the mirror. It wasn't often he was able to see a new form. Bec reached up and ran his hand through his stark white hair and blew out a exasperated puff of air. "Wow" he whispered as his fingers trailed down his face to inspect his features. He was always amazed of how pretty his forms turned out. She wished she understood how it worked.

Bec allowed herself to be sat down and cleaned up like a child. She wasn't bleeding but was covered in dirt and could taste the inside of her lip bleeding.

"You ok, sorry I should have been paying attention." Rain said, his focus on the spot of black blood on his lip.

"It's not your fault. I don't know why I agreed to fight him. I guess I'm feeling self destructive lately" he said with a shrug.

Phill had been ready to pounce on the guy and electricute him until his body stopped twitching and nothing came from his body but skinner stopped the fight. He had followed rain and bec into the house. Walking into the bathroom he sighed as he looked them over, getting a cool washcloth he handed it to bec. "Rain's nose seems broken i am not sure if they have ice, clean his face for me okay, yours could use it to, i am going to see if i can find some ice and maybe electricute that censorkip.gif until he stops screaming."

Phill walked out of the bathroom and foundEskia and his tails flicked in anger as he looked towards outside. "Rain's nose may be broken and could swell at any time is there any ice i could give him to help with the swelling?" Phill was going to end up hurting someone and after what happened his mind raced thinking shane may cause the loss of someone in his close friends and bringing him along seemed like a bad idea.

Rain wiped the small amount of blood and mostly dirt for becs face. She looked downcast, understandable after what had just happened.


"It's not your fault. I don't know why I agreed to fight him. I guess I'm feeling self destructive lately"

A gentle shack of his head had his hair falling around his face.

""Now why do you say that, isnt it natural to want to fit in with the group or wanting to better your self. So this one ended badly, but bec, your not dead. So practice and try again later, just not against shane." Rain leaned back onto his hunches.


"Rain's nose seems broken i am not sure if they have ice, clean his face for me okay, yours could use it to, i am going to see if i can find some ice and maybe electricute that censorkip.gif*** until he stops screaming." Phill had handed bec a cloth before he left in search of ice.

Reaching over rain hasty took the cloth. It wasnt that he did know bec well enough, but it was the body he looked like.

"Thanks phill" rain called as he left before turning back to bec.

"Dont worry about me. I'll live." Rain managed the best he could in cleaning of his face.


-----

"Rain's nose may be broken and could swell at any time is there any ice i could give him to help with the swelling?" Eskia's attention went from david to phill.

"Unfortunately not, but dauoa can heal. Go see if he's up to healing rain. " Eskia turned back to david as she pointed to the door. If she didnt have ice there wasn't much she could do. If phill brought her water she could freeze it. But he would have to know what kind of magic she had.

Phill had been trying to avoid walking out there since he really didn't feel like getting in a fight. He had heard rain calling out and shook his head calling back "you are welcome but we will need to try some way to help with that nose." He was now standing at the door that led outside and taking slow deep breaths he opened the door. He focused his eye's on dauoa walking to him. "Hey dauoa? I am not sure if it is a good time but could you heal rain's nose? It looks like it could be broken and i can't find or make ice to help with the swelling." As he spoke his tails were swaying with small sparks of electricity flickering between them but staying back as he dodn't want to start another scene and anger the magic guy again.

"I'm Shane." Being himself, Shane kept his last name secret, as it only brought him bad memories anyways. His short time here had already changed him, though probably not for the better. But now he knew of some power. If he could compete with these mythical, magical creatures, then really who could top him? "7 foot monster? Doubt half a foot will make a difference" Shane said cracking a cocky joke. He would've stood up to prove his point, though it wouldn't be a good idea with the gravity wall and his poor conditioned ankle. All he could do now was wait, maybe gain the trust of a few... then, strike when they least expected it.

Dauoa glanced from phill to skinner as if waiting for permission. He didnt thing he could anyway from lack of energy and food, but if he could then the bite on skinners shoulder was first on his list of things to heal.

" I can try but no guarantee that it will work. I've.... lost some of my powers. For now at least, ill get them back if I eat something." Dauoa wanted to help, but he was leery of trying.

Standing he glanced back to skinner before leaving his with shane. Skinner was a strong individual, he could protect himself and the locket. And skinner wouldnt loose it.

"I'll be back." Dauoa walked off in the direction of the house. It was a slow walk and phill didnt say much. It appeared that phill only wanted his company for hisbhealing abilities, and it made him sad. At one point he had though that he was a friend, a part of the group. Now he was just a convenient way to feel better. At least skinner had a reason to use him. He would learn how to break a wendigo curse and possibly, possibly skinner liked him as a person. A friend.

Once inside it didnt take long to find rain and bec. The smell of blood drifting from the bathroom in the back of the kitchen.

Walking up dauoa stopped and looked at his feet. Rain was sitting close to a new boy. He must have been a new member of the group as he had never seen him before.

"Hey, phill asked me to heal your wounds." Glancing at the boy he seen faint purple marks around his neck. " And i can heal yours also." He nodded to the white haired boy, he was pretty, white hair hung to his lower back and garnet red eyes set in pale skin. Large white ears with traces of creme running through them.

Not thinking his hand snaked out and traced one furry appendage before drifting to the forming purple. He could feel the energy leave him almost as soon as he touched him. He had never felt that before. Before now he had always had enough to eat and never injured enough to have to worry about this kind of things. But he had wanted to help and he felt a little better after the nap. What energy he had saved, he felt it being pulled through him. Almost as if not by choice.

Startled he shuffled back, tripping over phill before loosing his footing. Falling into rains lap.

Frozen

"I'm sorry." Dauoa stood up hastliy before planting his hand on rains face. There wasnt a pull this time as he pushed what magic he had left into rain. The swelling went down and his nose snapped back into place with a sickening crunch and some crackling. Dauġa didnt see this as he feel through from being be pleased of energy. It probably hadnt been a good idea, with using the last of it left him out.

He felt gentle hands embrace him as he fell. A warm chest holding him from the harsh floor.

"Dauġa, you ok. Come on whats wrong. Phill what happened to him, he looks like censorkip.gif. Man he should have never had healed me and bec it he was sick."

Worry...

That's what filled the voice that spoke. It must have been rain who was talking.

Phill had been slightly on guard around most and dauoa had still been new to them slightly and he needed to spend time and get to know him. He did heal but what if he had attacked them after they felt safe. He walked in silence to where he wanted to help rain. He watched asdauoa began healing and helping them. "Try not to push yourself too far."

Just as soon as the words left his mouth dauoa began to crumple and phill cursed as he became worried more. Heran to catch him but rain was closer. "I am not sure i asked eskiaif she had ice she said no and to ask him, i asked him and braught him here then this happened. He grabbed Dauoa by the legs "i must not have been paying attention, if i knew he was sick i never would have asked him." His voice was full of guilt and worry, he didn't want to lose anyone if he could help it unless they were a threat, Dauoa had helped heal them and did nothing but try to survive.

With a small amount of help he carries Dauoa up to a bedroom and gently lays him in bed. He made duaoa as comfortable as he could and sat down beside him. "I am sorry for everything..i can get skinner for you if you want me to. I am not good with people usually, you could have said no, you are hurt too and i don't want to risk you getting hurt. I want to get to know you more and maybe become friends, we both have a bad habits yes but your crime was not your fault since it was to survive, thats how i see it at least. I hope that whatever is causing it can be fixed i would offer to help but shocking it would probably not work." His ears were down and his tails were down from sadness and guilt. He put a hand lightly on dauoa's forehead "what happened to you i wonder, don't waste energy speaking if you are awake, i can get to know you later but for now you need to rest, and if you want skinner just make any noise that doesn't take a lot of energy unless you are positive talking is fine." His voice had changed slightly the guilt and worry were still there but the way he was talking betrayed that he was trying to open himself up and be friends though it seemed he was struggling with himself over it.

"Now why do you say that, Isn't it natural to want to fit in with the group or wanting to better your self. So this one ended badly, but Bec, your not dead. So practice and try again later, just not against Shane." Rain asked with some helpful advice.

Bec shrugged and kept her eyes on the floor. Rain didn't quite get it but that was ok. It was difficult to keep track of Bec and how she looks. Some forms were more prone to sadness than others because her personality can change with each transformation.

"Yeah....your right. I guess I'm used to melding seamlessly with any group" She said, referring to her attraction to those she sees that can keep her safe, "It's just...people seem pretty pissed at-" He fell silent when Phil entered the bathroom again. He liked how protecting Rain was being over Him, it made him feel safe. A comfort when that man was still right outside.

Phill vanished to go fetch Daoua and her blood ran cold. Daoua was here...she had forgotten completely. He had no idea Healing was in Daoua's list of skills. He thought it was just murder and complaining.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Skinner turned his head when Phill stated he needed Daoua to heal Bec and Rain. Skinner nodded to the boy sitting next to him, "Go ahead, not like you can go far anyway" he said, motioning to the locket around his neck. Skinner turned to say something to Phill but paused when he noticed his unwavering gaze fixed on Daoua. He was acting as if Shane did not exist. He shot the boy a look that said, "Don't." before Daoua got up and followed him back inside. Now he was alone with Shane. Skinner sudden'y felt bad for the man, he was injured after all. Skinner sighed and rolled his eyes.

resiter he said, instantly reverting gravity to normal. Once the grass began to snap back into place, Skinner reached out and grabbed Shane's bleeding foot. The scrawny man was surprisingly strong as he drug his injured foot into his lap and inspected the puncture wounds on his ankle. He wasn't going to do anything about those. He was a big boy and tried to kill a small woman. Without warning, Skinner twisted the man's ankle back the other way. THe joint popped back into place with a sharp snap. Skinner released his hold on the man's foot and got to his feet. "Well. Now that we have that straight. Whenever you see Rain and the changing thing, Apologize" he said offering his hand to help the man off the ground.

(((rest of Bec and David to come. It's actually pretty late here)))

Rain catched dauoa as he fell. He looked paler than he remembered, and a little thinner. But it had only been two days. How had he gotten so thin in such a short amount of time.

"Dauġa, you ok. Come on whats wrong. Phill what happened to him, he looks like censorkip.gif. Man he should have never had healed me and bec it he was sick." Rain gentle lifted dauoa and with phills help got him back to the back room. The layed him down gently and he looked like he was sleeping.


"what happened to you i wonder, don't waste energy speaking if you are awake, i can get to know you later but for now you need to rest, and if you want skinner just make any noise that doesn't take a lot of energy unless you are positive talking is fine." Rain glanced over to phill. His ears where down and his tails limp, dejected. Thats what he looked like.

Clapping him on the back rain looked back at dauġa. Not a sound was uttered from him.

"It looks like hes asleep. Dont worry about it to much. I'll go get skinner to keep a eye on him as dauoa is his responsibility now." Rain nodded and thanked phill before he left.

Heading out side he spotted skinner still sitting beside shane. It didnt look like he had moved, but his ankle was set back into place. Next time he would think with a level head, next time it would be his neck not his ankle.

"Skinner, dauġa's passed out again. He hilled both me and bec, I think it was to much for him. He back in the bed room again. Just though I would let you know." Rains eyes slide from shane as he glanced quickly to skinner before turning to the house and leaving.

Bec flinched but did not protest when Daoua reached out to touch his sensitive white ears. He did tense up when Daoua lightly brushed his fingertips across his throat. The mirror had showed him that Shane's hand print was imprinting on her neck in the form of a bruise. She was grateful Daoua was here to make it go away. One less thing to remind her.

Daoua must not have realized that the little boy with white hair was actually Bec. That was fine with him. He wasn't really ready to talk to him again. It was different when she thought they would be staying in New Mesa. Traveling with him was a different story. Him along with David was making her regretting coming along.
.

As the other two scrambled around to help Daoua as he passed out in Rain's lap. He was looking pretty rough. What was that guy doing to him? And why did Daoua follow him around? How long had Bec been gone? It seemed that the whole party was changing in the short time they were in the city. What happened to them all?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

David excused himself from talking to Eskia to take a walk outside. He picked up cigarette supplies before they left and wanted to try his hand at making a cigarette. All this future telling and fighting outside was stressing David out. He needed a pacifier.

David stepped outside a few seconds after Rain. As he walked down the steps, Skinner passed him heading back into the house. David guessed it was to check on his prisoner. Shane was standing not too far off but David ignored him. He wanted to Talk to Ekia.

David smiled as he approached the old woman sitting on the wagon. David took a seat next to her and pulled out a pouch of dried leaves and a pack of white papers. he started trying to roll a cigarette as he spoke, "So...your vision thinks I'm going to die on this trip?" he asked, struggling to keep the tobacco in the paper.

Ekia watched as skinner left with rain. Both traveling back to the house. This group was making it lively all right.
Her eyes landed on david as he came out and passed skinner. She could see the wheels turning as he glance from skinner to shane and then onto her.

"So...your vision thinks I'm going to die on this trip?" She smiled, watching him attempt to make a his puffing stock put a laugh bubbling up her throat. But to give such bad news that he wanted, it was inappropriate.

"I don't think, I know. But unlike when someone dies I dont see any sort of burial. Most of the time, most, I see how someone dies and what happens after. If I dont see a burial then there life continues. They survived, in your case I have seen neither, just your death. Something is stopping me from seeing it. But you will be alright."

Hobbling down from the wagon she faced it. Holding a hand out she looked between the paper and dried leaves, expecting him to hand a little over.

With a little she rolled up a small one and handed it back to him.

"Like the paper, which has a beginning and an end, so to will your life. But like it connects to keep going, something akin to that i suspect will happen." Leaning foward she glanced to shane sitting on the ground still.

"Boy, you may want to stay out here. Other than the smell of death in the air, its quite nice out here."

Phill let out a small sigh as he ran his fingers through his hair. He shook his head and began walking out of the room. He looked around and walked past skinner. "He is asleep he should stay in there even when he is awake." Phill made his way to the main room and sat in the main room rubbing his ears. He stretched out and he began humming to himself.

David took the cigarette gratefully and stuck it between his teeth. He would need to learn how to roll his own if they were going on this trip. David lit the end with a match book he found in Ekia's kitchen. He inhaled through the white cylinder, causing the tip to glow red hot for a moment. David looked out into the fog, leaning against the wagon with his arms crossed. Ekia was right, I was nice out here

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Skinner followed Phill back into the house. What had Daoua gotten himself into this time?

"He is asleep he should stay in there even when he is awake." Phill said before going to find a seat in the living room. Skinner watched him as he left the room. What the hell did he mean by that? Was he referencing what he was? Skinner scoffed and pushed past the curtains that lead to the bedroom.

Daoua was right where Phill said he would be. Passed out on the bed. Again. Skinner took off his coat and hung it on the hook by the door. He sat in the chair besides the bed and pulled out his notebook. Skinner scribbled some notes and waited for DAoua to wake up.

Night had fallen and soon everyone was spread out on the floor around the house. Rain and phill was in the kitchen with bec laying in the door way. Ekia and eskia had disappeared to another back room leavin skinner and dauoa to the small room with a bed. Shane, david and theon sleeped in the living room.




------time skip-------

It was early the next morning, the sun barely peaking out over the horizon. Seeming to sence this the young wendigo opened sleepy eyes. Rolling over he let go of whatever object he had in his hand. Laying on his back he gazed up at the ceiling before laying them on the rest of the room.

Everyhing was ok other than skinner. He must have fallen asleep in the chair beside the bed, his pant leg pulled out. Dauoa must have grabbed onto him sometime doing the night, the unconscious fear of him leaving like he had just about every time he had fallen asleep.

Sitting up he reached out, gently shaking him awake.

"Skinner, hey skinner. When are we leaving." He had half a mind to reinform him that he was hungry but decided to keep that to himself, for now. Every time he brought it up bad things happened.

Foot steps had him turning to the door. The little dog thing was there watching him.

"I'm eskia, and I will be your guide for now. Mother passed away last night in her sleep so I have no reason to stay here." She came over and sat on the bed, dried tear tracks ran down her face.

"I'm sorry" he didnt know what else to say, he was usally the reason people died. But here it was, old age.

"I dont want to hear that, specially from you. Get ready we leave in a hour." With that she went out the door.


-------

Eskia walked out from Disclosure room she didn't really have any intention of going with them but they needed to get up first.

She went to the kitchen waking people up as she went. One there she started to make food. The smell feeling the house. If any asked how she had food, well they didnt need to know. She wasnt a mystic for nothing.

Once she finished she brought a tray of rolls and cooked ham to a small table in the living room.

"Alright, I am sorry to tell you but your paths split. The first group is rain, theon, and bec. You path leads you to the cold icy tundra of Hoshikies frozen plains. There you will find what is killing the planet. Its about a month and a half trip." A small hic up escaped her as she tried not to think about her mother. If she could keep busy, she could keep her off her mind.

"David, unfortunately shane, and me will be traveling to virtea's forest. Or what is left of it." Dauġa and skinner came out of the back room at this point and eskia caught dauġa's attention. " It was once a beautiful place, but there living white stag, graceful minor deity of the forest left. When he became a monster, the woods turned agains mankind. All who enter generally dont come back out. That is where we will be going. There we will find a powerful ally." Done with the acussing dauġa silently she turned to the last three.

"Dauġa, skinner and phill. The three of you will be going to the desert. There is multiple things your looking for. Skinner will know two when he see them. Eat them leave, there is nothing for us here now."

Eskia traveled out to the wagon hooking up the horses.


-------


Dauġa and skinner where dragged out the door practically by eskia and shoved into the wagon. Phill not far behind. She didnt leave room for argument as the watched them leave.

"So where are we going" dauoa was a little nervous with phill being so close again after the three or four days they had been apart.

Sitting up front with skinner as he drove he would theough looks over his shoulder at phill. He looked dejected and sad.

"Cheer up phill, this will be over before you know it." He tried to lighten the mood, but not knowing where they where going or what they were doing was a little frustrating. And eskia never did come like she said she would.



------


Rain stood out side and hugged phill before he left with skinner and dauġa.

"Be careful and come back safely. Ill see you around, at the house maybe." He figured phill knew what he was talking about but it was to late to clarify as the wagon was leaving.

Turning to theon and bec he smiled.

"So, without a wagon how are we going to get there. I've been up that way before and its a long journey on horse, longer on foot. We can go back to new mesa for horses. Or steal from someone else along the way."

Rain laughed as he gathered his stuff and set off down the road that lead to there destination. He was sure they would find a ride somewhere along the way. Worse comes to worse bec could ride behind theon and he could ride snow.

"Come on"

--------

Eskia glanced from shane to david. She felt as if this wasnt a good idea but he had missed his chance for another body of power. If he had gotten ahold of the neckless that skinner had, he would have control over a 7 foot man eatting monster. A great thing for a power hungry man to have. But luckily he didnt know about them and so skinner left with it.

Skinner was a odd one, he had power but he didn't let it go to his head. Take dauoa for example, hes a beast amd skinner had him just about wrapped around his little finger. Not willingly but he was.

"Come on you two, we need to go back through town to go where we're going." Eskia started in that direction with the two trailing behind. Now the group was split up and hopefully they would all come back in one piece.

A forest where no one came out? Ha! Apparently these people weren't Shane. He actually looked forward to going there, maybe he could slaughter some beasts, make himself feel more powerful. That's all Shane really wanted, power. "Doesn't sound so bad. It's going to take a lot more than a scary forest to stop me." Shane said with a sly grin. He kept his little possessions on his figure at all times anyways, so Shane was ready to go. Springing up from the couch, he gave a loud yawn as he stretched, eager to begin.

Phill had been a little bit saddened and was slightly on edge as he seemed to always mess up or have misunderstandings with skinner but at least rain wasn't traveling with shane though he did worry about david traveling with the new guy. He had grabbed some food and after eating some of it he picked up his bag and began following the others. He got into the wagon and sat down looking at the picture of his lost parents as what he was told about losing his family and gaining another replayed in his mind unsure if that meant he would forget his old one fully or if the one he was traveling with would be lost.

Phill let a small smile cross his face as he scooted closer to dauoa and looked him over. "I am fine but even after the resting you have gotten you look like you are sick, has skinner been treating you alright? I am sorry for asking you to heal the others i didn't realize you were still weakened." He had noticed something and decided to try his luck plus he remembered some of what duaoa said. "I noticed that you don't eat normal food and based on you killing people i am guessing you eat other people? Is there any substitute that could help fill you without killing? I have no room to speak i am wanted in the south for what i have done, i cant return there or even my species even with my titel." He was waiting for eskia to come back, she said multiple but skinner would only know two, what were the others and how would they know. The questions tugged at his brain but he figured they would have to wait his biggest question needed to be answered though. "The desert? Which one i know that there are multiple deserts so are we suppose to search all of them?"

Eskia glanced over at shane as she walked, she wasnt in the mood to deal with him amd his stupidity. He knew absolutely nothing about nalom and it's deadlier side. But if he wanted to run head first into death, well she wasnt going to stop him.

"You know nothing of what is in store. If its not the wildlife trying to kill you the woods will. If the plant life doesnt succed then it will be the land. One wrong move is all it will take for you to end up as fertilizer for the ground. " Eskia kept on her way. It would be a long journey, one she wished she didnt have to go on. And she wouldnt had her mother not passed. But she had to be strong, the fate of the world wouldnt care that she had passed and eskia was sad about it.

"Hm so would you like me to fill you in on some history about where we are going?" Eskia would cloud her mind with knowledge, a sure way to drowned out her mother's death. She wouldnt cry!

Dauoa climbed into the back of the wagon. He only meeded skinner so he wasnt sure why phill was coming. Was it because the dog lady said. He wasnt even sure where they where going.

"I am fine but even after the resting you have gotten you look like you are sick, has skinner been treating you alright? I am sorry for asking you to heal the others i didn't realize you were still weakened." Phill spoke up from his place at the end of the wagon.

"Hmmm. Yea im fine, skinner treats me...... ok. I'll live, hopefully." Dauġa was ok with riding in silence. He didnt have the energy to talk let alone move it felt like.

"I noticed that you don't eat normal food and based on you killing people i am guessing you eat other people? Is there any substitute that could help fill you without killing? I have no room to speak i am wanted in the south for what i have done, i cant return there or even my species even with my title." Dauġa glanced back at phill before leaning back on the backboard.

How did he want to answer that question. Not many people bothered to ask him about himself. The newest one wanting to all but cut him up until recently.

" Yes I eat people, I can eat dead ones to as long as they are not to terribly decomposed. And as far as I know, no. I havent found anything to substitute for it. Ive killed alot.png of people. And i won't try to justify it anymore. I.. I just dont care. Because it seems like no matter what I do its wrong. But im just like everyone else, I dont want to die. So i eat to survive, but unless skinner can fix it, me, I'll die from starvation before that happens." Dauoa looked out at the changing scenery his eyes dulling.

"And sometime, sometimes I think it would be better if I died. No ones left to care." Dauoa laid his head on his arm, which hung over the back of the seat. His back pressed into skinners side. He felt a little cold and laid out as much as he could to soak up the sun. Enjoying the warm of its rays and the heat being excluded from skinner.

"The desert? Which one i know that there are multiple deserts so are we suppose to search all of them?" Dauġa's mind must have wandered because when he came back to the conversation phill had changed the subject.

"I dont know, I didnt ask before we left." Dauġa nodded his head with his eyes closed.

Phillhad been unsure about the subject so he had changed it. He was also curious because he had no clue where they were going hoping skinner knew where to go. He had listened to all of the details that dauoa told him about how he had to eat and what he could eat. "You could eat dead bodies to survive instead of killing, that seems not as bad i mean yes its stealing the body of someone but it is better than killing them. I am guessing it isn't the blood that keeps you alice? If it was i would offer to help you out and if we come across any bodies it would be best to feed you since you would not be good if you are starved you may end up turning on us due to hunger and if that happens it will be skinners fault in my point of view. I do not like his method since he is starving you it seems. I care about you as much as it doesn't seem like it, you are a part of the group and you seemed dangerous at first so i pushed you away from us. You are dangerous but it is not your fault that you have to eat."

Phill was in the back of the wagon as they sat up front he still felt somewhat left out. He took his tails in his arms holding them close, the two fluffy appendages keeping him warm. "I don't think you deserve to die, everyone has done bad things, you just were trying to survive." He gave out a soft sigh and closed his eyes while looking up at the top of the wagon. I will not let him starve you to death if you look like you are about to die which doesn't seem too far off i will find a body for you to eat so that you can live."

Bec was curled up on the floor at the foot of Phil and Rain's sleeping forms. Her eye cracked open against the sleep as Eskia flowed into the kitchen, hellbent on waking the dead with her noise. Bec rose to her paws and shook out her fur. She gave a doggy huff and padded towards the door. She needed to pee and since she was a dog, that was easy to take care off. Bec padded through the living room where people were already beginning to stir. Bec spotted David with a terribly rolled cigarette in his mouth heading towards the door. Perfect She thought as she trotted after him. She squeezed through the opening before the door could shut.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Skinner jerked awake from a bad dream and looked around bleary and confused. His back hurt from sleeping upright the whole night and his mouth was terribly dry. It was Daoua that had awoken them. The boy was gently shaking him,

"Skinner, hey Skinner. When are we leaving." he asked, the glow returning to his eyes from a good night's sleep. Skinner stretched and groaned , "This morning, I have s surprise for you" he said, standing from his chair, knees creaking as he did so. He exited the bedroom with Daoua close behind him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

David lit his cigarette and tried to pull. It was difficult to draw but it smoked so he was happy. A golden retriever shot passed and bolted into the fog. It may have been the sleep still in his eyes but he swore that dog had a silver necklace on. He shrugged and sat on the steps to smoke and wait for breakfast.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bec slipped back into the house through the cracked door and paced into the kitchen just as Skinner entered from the back bedroom. She padded into the kitchen and sat under the table. Eskia alerted the room that her mother had passed in the night and Skinner's eyes dropped. She said it was coming. Skinner was glad that she died surrounded by her daughter and old friends.

Eskia gave them regional assignments and SKinner stood off to the side munching on some of the food. He was with Phill? Which one was that again?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

David Reentered the kitchen on the tail end of Eskia's instructions,
"David, unfortunately shane, and me will be traveling to virtea's forest. Or what is left of it." Eskia said, elaborating on what she meant. It didn't dawn on him then, but the Virtea Forest was to home land of Daoua.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Out in the yard, David helped Skinner load up the last of their stuff on the wagon. Skinner had, at some point, accumilated a lot more baggage than what he arrived with. He suspected he was stealing from the dead woman's house but didn't confront him about it. He was sure They would be fine. Skinner captured Daoua once. David was more worried about Phill. He wasn't sure how he would be split up like this. Phill could take care of himself.

David crossed the yard and grabbed both kitsunes into a hug, "Last one back buys dinner" he said with a laugh, "Be safe guys. I won't be there to bail you out of trouble". He was mostly joking. It was an attempt to lighten the mood after those grim predictions from the day before. With any luck, he would be seeing them again soon enough. He said his final goodbyes and went to stand by Eskia. He was sad to see his friends go. Especially since he will be stuck with the guy who tried to kill Rain and Bec the day before.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the road, Skinner smoked a cigarette and kept the horses on a steady path south. He kept to himself as Phil and Daoua talked. The chatted about what Daoua eats and how Skinner had been treating him. Skinner rolled his eyes, 'You know, Skinner is right here." he said as they exited Ekia's fog fence.

Some time later, Skinner pulled to a stop in front of a iron gate that barred a trail that lead off into the dying forest. Skinner raised his wooden spoon and the gate sprung open. He cracked the reigns and egged to wagon inside.

Skinner pulled to a stop in the middle of a traveler's graveyard. Skinner lit another cigarette and waved it around at them. "Go crazy" he said to Daoua nonchalantly. Skinner hadn't failed to notice that Daoua was looking worse and worse. Seemed that four days was his max. Skinner looked back at Phill, "Do not leave this cart, no matter what" he instructed. Skinner disreguarded his instructions and jumped down off the cart. He went around to the back and started digging throuhg a trunck David tied to the back. He produced a Leather bag and started dumping silver powder into a line around the cart. In no time, he completed the circle. Skinner resealed the bag and tossed it into the back of the cart. He took his place back on the driver's bench and took the locket between two fingers. He looked Daoua in the eye and nodded, snapping open the clasp and releasing the signal onto the area.
