The Shepherds were crossing the outskirts as swiftly as possible to be undetected by enemy eyes since they had been traveling in not-so-friendly territory. But it was the loud cry that made the group’s tactical Dark Flier suddenly charge towards the source, spotting a young girl outnumbered by fierce bandits.
Without thinking, the woman pulled out her own Arcthunder to rain a mass amount of lightning bolts onto the targets, easily taking out the bandits without hitting the small girl. Approaching slowly, she leaped from the dark pegasus, landing rather ungracefully to rush towards the civilian.
"Hey! Hey kiddo!…Are you alright?" The woman stood by to not frighten the girl anymore than she was.After Kilala’s explanation, Lori couldn’t even comprehend what she said. Lori just stared at the ground, trembling slightly.” But-but, why? I-I’m not even a big fan of Plegia, and especially not the fell dragon. I-I doubt I was ever a follower of it, even if I do have amnesia, I would never…” Lori couldn’t continue, she just kept staring at the ground, still trembling slightly. A-A vessel? Is that what I am? One for the fell dragon to return as, but I don’t want the fell dragon to return. Hundreds of people died when it was still alive. I’m not some killer!
Right after these thoughts, a voice ,seemingly from nowhere, spoke within her head. Yes, and I will do it all over again, with your help. Whether you want to help or not. Lori jumped up from her seat, looking around her. “Who said that?!” Lori’s hand gripped the hilt of her sword at her hip. It may be bronze, but MAYBE it might do something to help.
Watching the younger girl jump and question at the air brought heavy confusion to Kilala, yet at the same time suspicion on what was going on.
‘A hallucination? This seems not so strangely familiar…’
Noticing as Lori gripped her sword however, spiked up Kilala’s defenses as she stood up to grip Lori’s shoulder and shake her roughly before she attempted to unsheathed her sword. “Lori! SNAP OUT OF IT, PLEASE! You’re hallucinating! Whatever you see or hear, is not there! Please Lori!”
