No no no this was all wrong...She wanted to fight them on her own. There were too many of them, sending more just meant more people would get hurt. It was the opposite of what Rona wanted.

The Wyvern Rider had been certain she was going to die today. The intention was that she would keep the focus of the bandits, letting everyone else get in and take out the leader without worry. Her only job would be to survive long enough.

 

To make matters worse the healer was with them, meaning the others were in greater danger than before, and between Layne and Yue there were two frail allies to watch out for.

 

There was only one option. Kill all the foes before they could reach the others. She'd have to work harder than ever.

 

She patted Cormag and whispered to the beast. "Please don't let yourself get hurt, whatever happens, if worse comes to worse I need you to get the others out of here."

 

Then, to her allies, more specifically to Layne, she said, "If Yue gets hit, be sure to heal her first, she'd be in the most danger if they attack her."

 

And now all that was left was to wait for Yue to give the signal to attack and, when it came, Rona spurred Cormag into action. She swooped down upon the Fighter right in front of them and, preparing a Locking Strike, intending to limit the man's movements or kill him outright, and brought her axe down hard upon the bandit.

"Alright, we'll split up then. Rona, Layne, Yue and um, Raynor was it? You four will be charging the front. Remember, your our diversion force, so don't fight longer than you need to and don't put yourself in any unnecessary danger. The rest of you will be with me."

 

Wait, what? Yue was in the group with the scary man? But whyyy? He was scary. And he looked mean too. Mean and scary.

 

Her leader's voice snapped her out of her panicked daze. "Make sure to wait for us to get into position before attacking." The boy then looked troubled. "I can't really signal you for when that is, so..." he turned to the archer, saying, "when you feel enough time has passed, tell the others." Then, with a, "good luck and stay as safe as you can," the boy waved to them and walked off with the rest of the group.

 

The girl shivered. He was asking her to do this? To actually talk, to tell them to do something? Oh no, oh no, that was way too scary and not at all something she was fine with. But if Leon believed she could do it, then maybe...maybe she could? Or maybe she'd just fail and then everybody would see how horrible, terrible she was at telling people to do stuff. That was another reason she'd left her tribe. Because her father had always expected her to be fine with giving orders and she just wasn't. Also, it meant talking, which was another thing she was bad at.

 

But maybe she'd been sitting there and thinking for too long, because people were starting to look at her, and Rona looked impatient, and maybe--and then she took a deep breath and realized that no, it hadn't been that long at all. Calming down, Yue took stock of the situation and kept her eyes on the angle of the sunbeams that shone through the trees. She managed to listen to an entire conversation about how bored the bandits were with their post before she figured that enough time had passed for Leon's group to get into position.

 

The archer coughed lightly in an attempt to get their attention. "U-um, excuse me everyone. Not to interrupt whatever you're doing, but I think it's time for us to go," she finished in a meek whisper.

Layne mumbled softly to himself as they separated from the rest of the group, coming up to the front of the fort as he let out a little sigh. His focus turned back to the group going without him, a little sigh escaping him as he turned back to the group he was with. "Don't get too far away from me, guys. If we start to get overwhelmed, just back up a bit. We can afford to give them some space since we're distracting them for now."
 
He gave a grin to the others as he hefted his staff up into the air, the light from it thankfully not shining to give away their position, before he directed the staff towards the bandits...
 
"If Yue gets hit, be sure to heal her first, she'd be in the most danger if they attack her."
 
Layne nodded to Rona, his hand dropping down to lower his staff as he took a deep breath, letting the others prepare their charge once ready. His hands were shaking a little bit, but the healer attempted to hide it by tossing his staff from hand to hand, occasionally twirling the staff before giving a little toss to his other hand...
 
"U-um, excuse me everyone. Not to interrupt whatever you're doing, but I think it's time for us to go."

 

Layne gripped his staff tight as he turned to look towards Yue, "Like Rona said, if you get hurt, get over to me so I can patch you up. If more than one comes after you, I'll try to distract one of 'em," He flashed her quick grin before turning back to the combat, watching as Rona began her charge. He gripped his staff tighter, before letting out a little laugh as he charged right up behind her. His hand on his staff rose it up into the air, the tip of it glowing brighter as he directed the staff towards the Bandit B that Rona had attacked, "It's my time to shine!"

 

And shine he did. He turned his head back to look at the others behind him, "Raynor, mind covering my right?"

"If Yue gets hit, be sure to heal her first, she'd be in the most danger if they attack her." Rona said. Raynor nodded. That made a lot of sense, seeing as she looked fragile. Still... something felt... off. He couldn't place his finger on it, but he didn't like the way she said that. He really needed to keep an eye on this woman. Something was going to go wrong, he knew it.

 
"U-um, excuse me everyone. Not to interrupt whatever you're doing, but I think it's time for us to go." Yue said. Raynor nodded and gave a thumbs up, trying to look as unscary as possible. He had no idea if he was succeeding, but it was the thought that counted... right? Right.

 

"Gotcha, Snow Fairy," That was her nickname now, no changing it. He liked the way it sounded to. Rona and Layne charged ahead, both attacking a Fighter in front of them, before their healer called out to him. 
 
"Raynor, mind covering my right?" That reminded him, he really needed to nickname them. Maybe he'll think of something during this battle.

"Consider it done!" Raynor commented as he ran ahead, seeing a mercenary close by. Spinning his lance, he got into his stance and stared down the merc. "Try to put up a fight," He taunted, getting ready for to counterattack.

The conversation the two bandit guards were having was interrupted as a man who was further ahead of them screamed, "oh god it's the Jouran army!" They looked to see one of the axe wielding bandits have his legs buckle, dropping his axe, as a girl riding a wyvern flew out of the tree line and struck down on him with her axe. The man tried to scream in pain, but it came out sounding more like a strained gasp. The man dropped to the ground as a pulse of white and blue energy flew from behind the wyvern into the man's chest. The one mercenary, who had been expressing boredom earlier, opened the door behind him, screaming, "we got company!" He had then decided to jump in on the action. Raising his sword up, he struck at the wyvern rider, barely dealing a glancing blow to the mount and rider, before they retaliated with an axe to the man's chest. 

 

Motionless, he dropped his blade as not even a gasp escaped his unbreathing mouth. With that done, another sword wielding bandit ran up,trying to take on the other Jouran that moved up to fight alongside the wyvern rider. Striking forward with his blade. Though the attack struck true, it bounced off the man's armor, doing little more than feeling annoying to the Jouran man. Both of these Jourans though, would be met with something  far more painful. A bandit wielding an axe rushed towards the man in a burst of speed, slashing with his axe and having it plant into Raynor's side. Meanwhile, another axe wielding bandit started running towards the wyvern. While the healer was in his line of sight, he felt a bit apprehensive moving towards them, and ended up rushing the wyvern rider, striking them with an axe and dealing more damage than the sword bandit had.

 

While more of the bandits began to swarm in towards them, a group would appear from the left. The same group that the strike team had seen earlier. 

 

 

When the group had left, Leon motioned to the others to follow after him, entering the side entance. Inside, there was not much to be seen as the room they entered into happened to be empty. However, there was definitely something to be heard. The people in the base seemed to be getting up to a clamor, hearing of the conflict going on outside. Getting their weapons, they all seemed to be heading for the door, and thus didn't notice the intruders. A man wielding a lance, seemingly groggy, asked one of the nearby bandits, "what is all the noise about?" 

 

"Well, it appears we're being attacked boss."

 

"Attacked? Here?" He seemed wary to believe this. "By who?" 

 

"Uhh, uh...Jourans, boss." 

 

"Jourans?" His eyes perked up at this, as a smile crossed his face. "To think they'd come here all themselves. Get ready boys, we're about to score it big. Oh and tell the others not to leave yet. This is a fort after all, if the pretty Jouran want to play hero, they can come in here themselves."

Rona panicked when she didn't finish the opponent off in a single blow. The fact that Layne, the man who mostly healed others, was the one to kill the foe that Rona was unable to stop on her own. She was sickened. Sickened with herself that she was so weak she needed help from a non-combatant. Her father never employed healers on the battlefield, saying they were too fragile for that, saving them for outside the battle when worthy warriors could seek them out.

 

And here was one, helping her to fight...

 

She was snapped back to reality when an attack came. She instinctively counter-attacked and was shocked to notice that she managed to fell this one all on her own.

The small victory was short lived as she was struck with a stronger blow to the side. Wincing she looked over...and saw something horrific.

 

More opponents were already coming from that side. And with them she spotted her worst fear. An archer, heading her way. The moment he got within range it was over for her...So she had to kill as many of them as she could before that.

 

With a shout she pulled her axe from the previous opponent and, turning in her saddle, she brought her axe down on the Fighter beside her. Even as she brought the axe down she glanced over towards the sword wielder near her Jouran companion. He would surely realize she was a weaker target right? He'd be on her soon and she had to try and kill him when he attacked.

 

She had to do this, she couldn't let the others die for her, her only choice was to do as much to as many as she could. She couldn't stop. The moment she gave herself even a second to think of anything but attacking she'd think about the archer. And then she would be truly useless again.

Once the team at the front of the fortress had done their job in getting the bandits distracted, it came time for the other team to get to work. The team of Leon, Ada, Aleithe, and of course, Cassia, snuck in through the side entrance. There was bound to be treasure! And of course, bandits that needed dealing with. Cassia could hear a couple of bandits having a short conversation between themselves, in fact. They were probably the closest ones to the team.

 

"Sounds like there's two of them over there," Cassia observed. "Let's try to take 'em out quickly, so that they can't tell anyone else we're here. Let's get going." With that, motivated by riches, Cassia made the first move, making for the wall before peeking around the corner. Yup. Two enemies. Best to take out the closest one first. And so, Cassia took the initiative in this fight, coming out from around the corner and tossing a dagger at the man closest to her.

Ada was displeased with sending both Rona and Layne to the frontlines, but it was out of her hands. Praying for the best as she followed Leon inside, she began to take note. The room they had entered to was, thankfully, empty. The only sounds they could hear were echoes of the troops heading towards the entrance or lazing about. The shaman figured that sneaking through the keep wouldn't be too difficult, considering there seemed to be an empty hallway that headed towards the back of it, but...
 
"Sounds like there's two of them over there. Let's try to take 'em out quickly, so that they can't tell anyone else we're here. Let's get going."

While Cassia had whispered that statement, the thief had still whipped around the corner without a care, alerting the brigands to their presence. Ada let out a low groan, tired of the suicidal antics that many of her fellow Iron Falcons exhibited.

"Leon, you and Aleithe should head towards the back... I'll support Cassia."
 
Following directly behind Cassia, she saw the red-haired girl's knives sink into a bandit's chest, stunned. Before the man had a chance to realize what hit him, Ada rushed past Cassia, dark magic in her palm. Using the close quarters to her advantage, the shaman attempted to slam her hand into the mercenary, aiming to kill him before he could move. While she couldn't see down the narrow hallway near her, she could see the axe-wielding man to the side, and took a stance in preparation to respond to him.
 
"We're in for it now, Cassia. Get ready."

Aleithe was displeased at the decision to have both himself and Leon be on the same group, but he understood the reason why and accepted his leader's decision. Yue would be able to provide cover for both of the group's riders well, while Layne would prevent Rona from killing herself in one of her suicidal charges, and not to mention the current infiltration team were the one that had the most mobility in moving indoors. Still, Aleithe wished that he was able to watch over the distraction team since it's the most vulnerable of the group right now.

"Sounds like there's two of them over there. Let's try to take 'em out quickly, so that they can't tell anyone else we're here. Let's get going."

 

"Leon, you and Aleithe should head towards the back... I'll support Cassia."

 

Well, they sure lost that element of surprise quite soon. Cassia went in for an attack and got herself exposed, and Ada had to move forward early to cover for her. This left them with Aleithe and Leon, having to decide what to do next. Aleithe himself was fine with Leon deciding what he should do next, but the situation wouldn't let them have the opportunity to strategize anymore. Well, while Ada and Cassia deal with the closest enemies, Aleithe decided to follow Ada's suggestion and moved forward, though also making sure that he didn't stay visible on the corridors for long.

 

"Leader, doesn't this remind you of the past somewhat?"

 

It actually had been a while since Aleithe actually fought side to side on foot with Leon like this. He used to do it more on the early days, but now it didn't happen as much as the Falcons grew. Sure was nice to to fight together with someone so reliable once more, back to back.

Layne flashed a quick grin to Raynor as the man charged up again, giving a thumbs up as he turned his attention back to the battle. His staff hand twirled it around lazily as he watched Rona begin her next wave of attacks, watching as the Wyvern Rider locked eyes with the group approaching from the west...

 

"Oh gods..." Layne let out a little frustrated mumble as he saw what had Rona locked up, a little sigh escaping him. They had time before the archer could get to them, a little bit of time, at the very least... "Take out this group, we're playing fast! We're on a timer!"

 

Layne let out a little mumble as he rubbed at his cheek, taking a quick look around himself. The fighter to his left, and the barbarian to his right... He may have gotten himself in a bit deeper than he should have, all things consider. He gripped his staff slowly, turning to look at Rona, getting an idea in his head. A few soft murmurs escaped the Cleric as he sneakily pointed the tip of the Healing Staff towards Rona. The normally flashy light was softer this time, subdued by his quieter chanting as the cuts and bruises on Rona and her mount began to patch up and mend themselves, giving her energy to continue her fight.

 

Layne turned away from Rona to look towards Yue, briefly looking to make sure she wasn't injured herself for once he caught his breath. He cleared his throat, trying to not startle her as he waved over to her, "They've got an archer of their own coming down. If you can get a good shot and take them out when they get close, that would be appreciated."

"Oh gods... Take out this group, we're playing fast! We're on a timer!"

 

Raynor was annoyed and in pain at the moment. Apparently, an archer noticed them, and everyone knew that the first target they would go for was the big leathery wings of the wyvern. He felt that should try and help out by taking that menace out, but he was preoccupied at the moment. Two of the bandits decided to gang up on him, and while he took only minimum damage from the sword wielder, the axe was more of an issue, so he wasn't getting away from them quick enough to take care of that archer.

 

"They've got an archer of their own coming down. If you can get a good shot and take them out when they get close, that would be appreciated." Oh, so Snow Fairy was an archer. Good to know. That knowledge alone was a load off of his mind. Now he could focus on these two meatshields. He was getting closer and closer to his goal. He would save his friend.

"Two vs one or one hundred vs one, the end result will be the same!" Raynor called out with the passion of a sun as he drove his lance at the sword wielder. "With me winning," All the while, he kept his eye on the axe user, trying to find an opening for him to take advantage of. They had to get this done quickly. He couldn't keep them waiting!

As the wyvern rider's axe sunk into the fighter, he let out a cry of pain. While he was clearly wounded and with only arm that was still usable, the fighter brought up the axe and with a swift cut had managed to strike Rona. Despite his axe hitting true, though, his expression dropped as he noticed that all of the girl's wounds began to heal back. Despair filling him as he realized this was where he was going to die, and that there was no way he could fell the wyvern and its rider, in a moment of desperation the man, against his beliefs, started to rush at the healer. In a frenzy, he swung his axe at Layne, though, as if by divine grace, Layne had managed to avoid the attack entirely. 

 

The sword wielding bandit, having been met with a nasty strike to sternum with a lance, struck back. Unfortunately his sword merely bounced off the man's skin with a "tink" noise. Backing off as the lance was pulled out of him, the mercenary looked at his options, and figured that his axe friend had this. As such, he charged the wyvern rider, brandishing his blade and striking at once, he managed to deal damage but only a glancing blow. The barbarian to the side of Raynor struck him with an axe, hitting true only to be countered with a lance to the gut. 
 
As the group on the right had begun to close in on the two Jourans and healer, one of them had noticed something. A gleam of white was in the forest line, and one of the bandits said, "hey! They got more in the back." 
 
One next to him said, "well, let's show them what they get when they mess with us Desert Riders!" 
 
"Yeah!" Thus, the bandit group started to run towards the white haired person they could barely make out in the treeline. 

 
Meanwhile, the archer started to grip his bow more tightly as he looked at his mark. He had never actually hunted a wyvern before, and he wasn't even sure how effective arrows were against their hide. Surely it couldn't be that tough, right? Wyverns weren't invincible, right? As the archer was trying to psyche himself up, he was met with a sudden startle as the woods behind them began to rustle. Clacking noises could be heard as footsteps made their towards them. Out from the woods, five skeletons emerged, making their way towards the bandits, likely attracted by the noise of combat. One such skeleton, more armored then the rest and with a menacing axe in hand seemed to make a noise that resembled laughing, its jaw continuing to clack around. 
 


Leon nodded to Ada, thinking that she and Cassia were likely strong and fast enough to take on and get away from any trouble that they would run into. Walking alongside Aleithe, he nodded to his companion as they began to reminisce about the times of the past. To be honest, Leon felt it odd, both that Aleithe was fighting without Reina, and that he was now used to seeing a Kinshi in battle. "I just hope your footwork hasn't gone poor." While Leon said this as a joke, his voiced was filled with both concern, genuine, and was a bit too on the serious side. 
 
The bandits seemed to be simply getting their gear ready, preparing for the inevitable assault by the Jourans. They were so focusing on preparing that they did not notice the sudden influx of people appearing through the side of the building. The sword wielding bandit let out a cry of pain as two daggers struck him in the back. The barbarian beside him looked over to him, his eyes going wide as a girl in dark, heavy, robes walked over blasting the sword bandit with a sphere of magical dark smoke. Going into a frenzy, the barbarian let out a roar, echoing throughout the entire fort. Charging at Ada, the Barbarian swung his axe, and while it had just barely missed something vital, it still had managed to cleave a sizable amount of damage into her. Though the damage was great, her opponent was as close as they got, and thus, Ada was able to strike the barbarian with her shade spell. 
 
The rest of the people inside the building hearing the bellow all looked to wear it was coming from. After a moment had passed, a resounding, "kill them!" could be heard coming from the back of the building. Being spurred to action, the bandits began to go on the move, running towards the intruders. The archer had run up, raising his bow, and firing the arrow straight into the dark mage. Though the shot was clean and easily hit the girl, Ada's surprisingly stocky body had managed to absorb most of the attack.

Bad, bad bad bad bad bad. Rona barely even felt the damage, nor did she realize she was being healed. She couldn't focus she couldn't think she couldn't she couldn't she just COULDN'T.

 

Screaming in her head Rona swung her axe at the man in front of her, hoping to kill him, trembling with her eyes wide. There we so many, there were so many, there were SO MANY.
 

All her allies were going to die. Just because she couldn't convince them to stay back. They're all going to die when it should just be her.

WHY DON'T THEY UNDERSTAND?
She should already be dead. Long before she met Leon. She was a Pawn. You didn't throw away the Knight, Bishop, and Queen just to help a Pawn. Her purpose was to be sacrificed for victory. Why couldn't they understand that?
WHY DIDN'T THEY LET HER DIE?

 

Breathing heavily Rona looked around once more. They were all over the place, so many, so many, too many....But there was a way out, still, she could save them, she had to, it was the only way she could make up for all these failures.

 

"Everyone!" She called out, trying to sound as authoritative as she could. Even she was surprised by the strong tone of her voice. "Get back, find cover, you're too open, you need to re-position now."

As Leon and Aleithe began to move away from the other duo, the voice of what Leon assumed to be the boss rang throughout the fort. Turning, he could hear a large collection of noises coming from the south of the building and said, "come on, I think the others are in trouble." Readying his blade, Leon ran downward to see that Ada now had an arrow wound with an axe striking her, and silently cursed at himself. Still, not being any bit deterred, Leon rushed the barbarian, and with both hands held tight around it, he thrust the sword straight through the man's chest. As he pulled the blade out, the bandit slumped to the ground, and Leon let out a heavy breath, his arms stinging a bit. Looking to Ada asked, "are you alright?" before turning to see the oncoming swarm of bandits, letting out a small sigh.

Layne mumbled a tiny bit as he watched the 'wounded' Rona continue her fight, his own eyes starting to shine a little bit as he hefted his staff up into the air. 
 
"Get back, find cover, you're too open, you need to re-position now."

 

He winced a little bit from the command, teeechnically, Rona was superior to him, but... His hand gripped his staff a little tighter as he glanced around, before calling out to Rayner, "Stay alive for a bit longer, I'm coming to heal you next, but right now, we need to thin their numbers. Stay alert!"

 

Layne began to take a half measure, his hand twirling his Healing Staff as he started to back away from the combat just a little bit, slipping down to where Yue was at as he turned back to the fighter standing in front of him. He hefted the staff up into the air, the air around it starting to shimmer lightly as he focused the energy towards the enemy, preparing the attack.

 

"No one dies on my watch."

"come on, I think the others are in trouble."

 

Leon's warning made Aleithe turn around from the enemies he saw on the other side of the corridor, and towards those that currently were attacking Ada. Leon was faster on his feets and dealt with one of the barbarians before Aleithe could get there. There were still more enemies however, and so Aleithe rushed forward, and struck at the Archer not far from behind the fighter with his sword. Archers would be defenseless from this close of a range, and Aleithe hoped that he would be able to kill him in one blow. Leon seemed to have already focused himself to take care of the wounded Ada, and so Aleithe turned around to focus on the enemies, preparing himself in particular to deal with the fighter not far away.

Ada had barely managed to deflect the brunt of the barbarian's blow, still losing her breath at the sheer pain it caused her. She had just managed to return a shot at the bandit before receiving an arrow in her arm, prompting a scream of pain from the shaman. Her body ached, she was losing more blood than she would like, and she was shaking as she tried to stand her ground against the two bandits assaulting her. She could hear more down the hallway as she panted, reaching at her body for her vulnerary.
 
"I can't. They'll take advantage of the time I spend using the medicine..." Looking behind her, she shot glare back at Cassia, gritting her teeth and breathing a little heavily. "Run. Now."
 
She intended to hold up the hole so that the thief could escape... But before either of them could move, Leon appeared from the ether, slicing through the barbarian, with Aleithe on his heels to apprehend the archer. Ada sighed in relief, clutching at her injured arm.
 
"Never better, boss..." Taking a step back and to Cassia's side, shooting her magic at the archer and biting her lip hard enough to draw more blood. She had to make this shot, otherwise everyone would get hurt even worse...! As the attack was fired, she slumped against Cassia, shaking slightly. "Hey... Stay here, will ya...? I need a bit of help..."

"Everyone!" Rona called out, trying to sound authoritative. "Get back, find cover, you're too open, you need to re-position now." The way Layne flinched made Raynor think that Rona was somehow a superior in this group. How that was, he wasn't too sure. You would think healers would be higher up since they looked after everyone, so they could force someone to get medical attention. Then again, he was never really part of a group before. Maybe there was something he was just missing.

 

"Stay alive for a bit longer, I'm coming to heal you next, but right now, we need to thin their numbers. Stay alert!" Layne called out. Raynor nodded as he got read to attack.

 

"Can do," He responded before turning in Rona's direction. "Hey kettle, stop calling the pot black!" Raynor called out as he went to stab the axe user in the chest. "You're far more in the open than we are. So either you re-position as well, or we're stuck here until we get rid of that archer!" After all, they couldn't let her get shot out of the sky. She was far too valuable of an asset.

Well, this whole ambush thing hadn't gone quite as well as Cassia would have liked. The barbarian she and Ada attacked let out a bellowing roar, and a resounding "Kill them!" could be heard in response throughout the fort. Not good. An archer even ran up and shot Ada! Rude! Cassia was about to try stabbing her way through to the archer, but it seemed that would be easier than she'd expected. Leon showed up just in the nick of time, killing the barbarian that got between Cassia and the archer she was after.

 

And then the unexpected happened. Not the usual unexpected of "oh, this battle's odds are a lot less favorable than I first imagined" or "hey, that bluff totally worked!". This was something Cassia never really expected in any type of situation. Ada slumped over, leaning onto Cassia.

 

"Hey... Stay here, will ya...? I need a bit of help..."

 

Well, as Cassia saw it, there were two options. Let Ada die to bandits who could swarm her and the other Falcons down, then get killed by those bandits herself later. Or, protect Ada, and earn her gratitude and possibly a favor. It wasn't something Cassia had to think twice about. "One serving of help, coming right up," she stated, moving herself between the shaman and the bandits. One bandit at a time, she'd have to take care of them. That archer had to go first though.

 

"Oi!" she called out, grabbing another knife for the sake of throwing. "Name's Cassia Falco, and I'm here to take your loot and protect cute girls! And it'll be a lot easier to do both of those things real soon, so you'd better stop me before you're all broke and dead!" With that bold declaration, Cassia made her move, throwing her dagger forward with a plan to hit the fighter down the hall. And it didn't seem like he had many options other than fighting back or running away; that hall was pretty narrow-looking. Cassia was ready for that.

 

Stay behind me, okay?

After Leon had managed to fell the bandit, Aleithe had run into to follow up on his attack. The Kinshi-less rider had slashed their blade across the Archer's torso, causing him to kneel down in pain, only for an orb of dark smoke to strike him in the face. With a snapping noise, the man's neck bent unnaturally far back as the archer felt to the ground. While the bandits were only further enraged by this, the closest one was stopped as he was struck by two daggers into his torso. 

 

Snarling in rage, the fighter looked back saying, "I'll kill the devil, you two kill the girl!" 

 

"The one with the sword or the dagger?"

 

"The dagger!" 

 

"Got it."

 

With that, the fighter ran past Cassia and brought up his axe. With a swing, he managed to strike Ada and bring her to nearly critical status. With a wide grin on his face, feeling as though success was inevitable. This feeling was cut short as he was blown back by a blast of dark magic to the gut, falling to the ground and lying there motionless. The other bandits had begun to charge up going through the corridor as well, both shocked and enraged that Ada had managed to kill yet another one of the bandits. Honoring his comrades last words, the man with the sword had managed to strike Cassia in the side, dealing a large blow to her and causing her to double over in pain. it was during this time, that an axe had swung over where she was just a moment before, missing due to this. 

 

In the back, some of the bandits almost met back up with their leader.

 

The thief, who was starting to make his way to where the violence was happening heard something. He heard the fighting and the noises were only getting less and less. However, he didn't hear the usual bragging that the rest of the bandits would've done if things were going their way. Which meant things were probably not. Being none too adept at combat, the thief figured now would be a good time to bolt out of here, hiding behind and peering over a pillar to see if the group was coming towards him. 

 

With all of the attacks having passed, Leon's eyes widened in panic as he saw his comrades get nearly struck down. This panic then turned into a look of fury, gripping his blade tighter as his voice seemed somehow more level and stoic than normal. "Ada, Cassia, get back." Going past Cassia, Leon gripped his blade with both hands. As he got into position, the mercenary turned around, too late, as the boy's blade has slashed across his arm. Yelling in pain, the man looked poised to fight back against Leon, raising up his blade only for the boy to lock blades, forcing the man into a clash. 

 

 

Rona swung her axe at the mercenary, and in her panic the injured man had managed to easily dodge out of the way. Bringing up his sword, he had managed to strike Rona and then with another swing he struck her yet again. Though his blows were doing very little for damage, and he himself was near death, the sword wielding bandit was feeling all the more confident that he would be able to kill this girl. This was immediately lost as Rona's axe had finally managed to find purchase in the man, dropping him to the ground and finally killing him. At around this time, the fighter Layne was fighting seemed in a frenzy and was trying to bring the healer down, only for the healer to, unexpectedly, fight back and strike him down with a white and blue pulse of energy. While the pulses were not all that strong, the man's body was barely holding on to begin with, and so Layne had managed to drop the fighter. 

 

Raynor, meanwhile, was locked in a duel with a different enemy. Thrusting forward with his lance, the barbarian had managed to dodge, retaliating with a strike of his axe. The found purchase in Raynor's side, and as the man was starting to look ragged, the barbarian, with a gleeful smile on his face, struck at Raynor yet again with his axe. As the axe had managed to cleave yet another large wound into Raynor, it was clear that the man was barely hanging on. However, Raynor had managed to counter back against the axe bandit, spearing him through the chest, and causing the man to fall to the ground dead. 

 

The bandits who were behind the group were starting to track down whoever else was in the forest. Seeing this, Yue had managed to move back a bit and try to keep herself hidden. This was quickly thwarted as the bandits had finally broken through the treeline, and seeing the frail looking girl, were only filled with more confidence to proceed. With nowhere to really run, that wouldn't abandon her friends, Yue had burst from the treeline and ended up meeting back up with Layne. 

 

The group of skeletons had begun their move, walking towards the group of bandits, weapons at the ready. While the skeletons started to mindlessly move forward, they stopped as the one with the axe raised his hand. Making a few hand motions, the skeletons seemed to suddenly start moving in a more organized fashion, asynchronously and allowing others to move ahead of them. Not expecting this, the sword wielding bandit was not ready as a sword wielding skeleton rushed at him, slashing him across the side. Doubling over in pain, the apparent leader of the skeletons slowly walked up to the pained bandit, and with both hands around his axe made of bones and some kind of twisted metal. In what appeared to be an instant, the skeleton swiped its axe down, effortlessly cleaving the head of the bandit off his neck. 

 

Though the other bandits were horrified by this display, they could not move as the other skeletons began to charge them. One with gnarled looking lance had struck forward at an axe wielding bandit, though he had managed to avoid the awkward stab. The other bandits were not so lucky, as the archer had a lance thrust into him, and the other axe bandit was struck by a sword. Readied now, the axe fighter had struck at the sword wielding skeleton, breaking an arm off of the monster. Bringing his axe back around, he struck the blade into the rib of the skeletons, causing it to explode into a pile bones. The other fighter struck back at the lancer that had attacked him, managing to cleave into its torso, as the archer had re-positioned himself and managed to shoot the head off the monster.
