|Disease Plot - 6 |
What seemed like months had passed, the few remaining citizens of Harena were all on edge after Brandhardt's summoning of the sand demons. Though the Cruithneans seem to be dealing with them well and as of yet, they haven't caused a major problem. Though Brandhardt cannot get away with unleashing those creatures - he needed to be taken down. A view not just shared with the majority of Harena, but with the infected pets too. Despite the colder weather, their condition was improving, the boils were healing, sores stopped weeping and coughs were diminishing. Many of Keket's "minions" had asked time and time again when they were going to retaliate, she snarled and evaded the question, though it was clear she was waiting for her health to improve. Snaremane was not as fortunate, he was deteriorating, despite becoming a pacifist in Keket's recent campaign, he too, was angered by Brandhardt's actions.
A fistful of Cruithnean dust whistled across the arena of the Battle Center, three "sand demons" (as they'd been dubbed) surged maniacally towards a Cain, though not an ordinary Cain. White flames decorated its body and a bright light glowed from markings arranged on its body - it was Cassiopeia, Callie's pet. Though slender and fragile, the creature jumped into the air, metres above the sand demons, wisps of white fire being left in her trail. The sand demons ceased charging and watched the Cain above, anticipating its return to the ground. Cassiopeia eased down, now behind, the sand demons and turned briskly, sending a pulse of white heat towards the creatures - which abruptly caused two of them to fall. The other avoided it by burrowing beneath the cold, grey rock that lined the arena. The Cain paused, waited, eyes glowing - as brightly as moons, smoke danced around the pet's figure and disappeared into the sky.
Moments passed, the ground seemed to have settled, Callie called out to her pet, requesting for her to come back... though Cassiopeia was wise, she stood her ground, whipping her tail rythmically in circles, generating thin rings of smoke. Suddenly, the Cain turned and paced towards Callie, her paws barely touching the ground between bounds. Callie breathed a sigh of relief... though Cassiopeia continued running and skidded around behind Callie and starting circling her. She was trapping her in a tunnel of ivory flames. Callie screamed, shaking at the terror of her beloved Cain betraying her. Though all was to become clear in the next few moments...
