Dekkrokh was sitting in a bar waiting for anyone who needed someone loyal that would fight by their side knowing that he would stand with them till the end.
"Bartender get me a beer."
He said in a low voice so that no one would know who it was speaking besides the bartender.

He came inside with a rumble. Giant of a man he was. Kassil Khirsah was a very old man though, but still clinged to youth. He faced the mercenary and smiled. Kassil wore massive heavy red armour with small red coned spiked protuding from all over it. He wore a black cloak with a red dragon tooth on the back of it. He had a great sword strapped across his back and a mace at his side strapped loosely. He had dark weathered skin from the sun, his face battle scared and wrinkled. His hair was cut short in a crew cut. He walked up to the mercenary and nodded.
"I need help with one such as you."
He said, his voice rough and booming

He smiled still facing the bartender his cloak covering his masculin body.
"Are you the man I was told about,Dragon Slayer."
 He said as he turned around with a mask covering half of his face showing his blue eye shadowing his golden eye.
"What is it you need my help with kind sir?"
 He said as he got up and walked over to Kassil looking up slightly.

He nodded and tilted his head, this man was direct. He liked that in the youth, too many young people using deception nowadays and not speaking the gods honest truth. Though he had learned long ago, truth suffered from too much analysis from the young and sometimes the old.
"Before we speak, let us sit, for I have traveled a long ways and am weary."
He came to a table in the corner and sat down with Dekkroh.
"Two weeks ago I was sent a letter from a very old friend who lived in the north with the barbarians. He had told me that something had come out of the moutians north of Talahar and was ravaging villages and killing people. At first, Hellsein thought it was a dragon, but he learned that this thing did not kill like a dragon. No, no fire, no roaring. Secretly. He believes it to be one of the last of the old races of Draconians. But I found out quickly enough that it was not the nature of Draconians. And so I need someone to help me in this. We are to go to the village of Masheik where we will meet Hellsein and go into the caves of the moutians and investigate what it is. The money will be good. So what do you think?"

He walked with him and sat down looking into the weary battle warriors eyes as he sat down.
"First off how much money will I get,and what else do you know about this creature,I usually ask only two questions before I accept.What is it and how do I kill it."
 He said as he pulled up a bag holding all his assentials.
"How far is the walk..or ride."
He said as he sat straight up in the chair.

He leaned back in his chair. He thought that the mercenary would ask more questions on this job, but he mostly only cared about the money, it seemed. Oh well, help was better then no help, not matter who it came from.
"The money? Well, they were planning on paying me a small fee of about 300 coins, and I was planning on giving you half of it. About a week riding."

He looked at him again his cloak tighly covering his body not showing any of his weapons.His golden eye gleamed in the little light of the candles.
"Alright you have a deal, but if you try and kill me I will show no mercy on you or the village we are to be riding to."
 He said smiling a little bit as he untied the bag and pulled out a bow.As he strapped the bow around his back he didn't let his eyes leave the warrior.
"And I think you won't be that reckless I hope."
 He said as he picked up the bag and walked out of the bar heading towards the stables.He looked back before he left the bar and said in a calm low vioce.
"Are you coming we do not have much time until the next attack."

He growled as his eyes slowly started to dim over with red, but he closed his eyes and shook his head roughly. Ignore the fool. He stood up slowly leaving a coin on the table and walked out to the stables where he climbed onto a large black warhorse.
"Let's go."
He kicked his heels into the horse and his horse neighed before galloping off into the gloom going north.

He followed behind cautiously for he barely knew this man he was riding with and didn't quite trust him yet for all the training he had endured had saved his life many times.
"Where did you learn how to fight?"
 He asked with a quiet voice still following behind ready for anything to happen on the way there.

Suddenly, a young woman on horseback caught up to them.  Her hair whipped in her face, covering her eyes.  The cloak she wore hid most of her body from view, but her voice gave way.

"Please help sirs.  We are in desperate need of assistance. I come from the village you are heading to now.  There is little time left."
And she whispered into the air, "Come to me."
Through the time and the shadows, he heard her voice calling to him, and answered.

He tured and saw the woman first as he said.
"Is it the village being attacked by some type of creature, because if it is we ar heading thta way right now."
 He said smiling a little bit as he slowed down to meet her face with his shadowed showing his dark baby blue eye.
"Do I know you from somewhere?"
He asked meeting her pace.

"Yes, it is being attacked, but I do not know what creature it is, only that there is death everywhere."

She looked at him, trying to place his face. The wind pushed her hair away from her face, exposing silvery eyes.  "Dekkrokh, it's Selise.  It's been a long time old friend.  I'm sorry to meet again under such circumstances."
And she whispered into the air, "Come to me."
Through the time and the shadows, he heard her voice calling to him, and answered.

He looked at her  smiled under his mask.
"Yes it has been a long time old friend."
 He said as he looked back ahead  to see where they were.
"Hm..we are entering the dead wastelands."
He said as he anyone could have marked a small grimly smile over his face through the mask.

Selise sighed.  "This is what my homeland has become, but still, it is where I call home, I have to protect it."

Her eyes held many years worth of suffering, but she refused to allow it to get to her.  If there was one thing she prided herself on it was her willingness to fight for what she believed in.

"I am sorry we had to meet again under such unfortunate circumstances, but from what I have heard, you have become quite a warrior, and if anyone can help us, it's you."  She looked at him with complete trust.
And she whispered into the air, "Come to me."
Through the time and the shadows, he heard her voice calling to him, and answered.

He look at her and smiled as he said.
"It has been along time since we last saw each other and yes I thought that I would need the training so I joined the Blood Scorpion guild on the western continent.It is not your fault that we meet under these circumstances, but I'm glad to see you not injured or dead."
 He said as he pulled his horse to a hault and stepped off near a burnt down house.He bent over and picked up some ashes as he rubbed them between two of his fingers.
"The last attack was about thirty minutes ago."

 He looked back to Kassil and smiled thinking to himself.I can't wait for my payday.Then his face turned to meet Selise's face.
"Shall we caych this beast of a fiend."
 He said as he took out his bow first.

"I'm going to help too.  You're not going to do this by yourselves."

She dismounted and drew her cloak back, revealing a sword and an assortment of throwing weapons that looked extremely deadly.

Noticing Dekkrokh's eyes, she hurried to reassure him.  "Before Father died he taught me all he knew about the art of fighting.  I can hold my own with the best of them. Mother taught me well too before she passed on."
And she whispered into the air, "Come to me."
Through the time and the shadows, he heard her voice calling to him, and answered.

He smiled as e pulled out the bag with all his assentials in it and opened it showing all types of weapons oriental throwing.He then looked at her and said.
"I'm sorry Selise but I can't let you do that it's to dangerous."
 He said as he stood up and looked at her.

"everyone always tells me that I can't.  Believe me, you'll be happy that I can help. I'm stronger than I look, and it's always a good thing to have a female there, distracts them for a while."

She stared at him defiantly.
And she whispered into the air, "Come to me."
Through the time and the shadows, he heard her voice calling to him, and answered.

Kassil smirked as he saw the women and looked around, momentarily ignoring the two of them as he rode his horse caustiously.

He looked at her and smiled under his mask.
"Fine but don't get hurt."


 He then turned towards Kassil.
"Are you going to answer my question Kassil, where did you learn how to fight."
 He asked as he followed on foot pulling his horse with him.

Selise looked up and noticed Kassil moving away from them.  Her heart began to pound, noticing where he was walking.

"Sir, be careful there.  Strange things have happened." Her eyes glazed over a moment, then returned to the color of the silvery moon.
And she whispered into the air, "Come to me."
Through the time and the shadows, he heard her voice calling to him, and answered.

ghed at the moment for it was deathly quiet.
"I don't think he cares."
 He said as he followed bow ready.

Stepping cautiously, Selise walked away from her horse, hand on one of her weapons.

In the distance she saw what looked like smoke rising, forming a darkened cloud over the land.
And she whispered into the air, "Come to me."
Through the time and the shadows, he heard her voice calling to him, and answered.

He stopped his horse and glanced back at the two.
"Experience."
He looked back forward seeing the smoke he started moving his horse faster as he smiled.

He smiled as he jumped up and landed on a smoking building looking around to see if anyone was still alive as he watched over the landscape for any sudden movements.
"It's quiet.To quiet."
 He whispered to himself.
