On the other side of the Country, Xaio and Geal were walking on foot. With the Starwalker having the lead and Geal behind him.
Xaio wasn’t much of a talker, so he didn’t think about opening a conversation with Geal. Not that he was rude or disrespectful, he was a being of short but powerful words, that let his action speak even louder than his words did.
Geal, on the other hand, was thinking about the place. He swore he would never come here, not after his wife died, he also swore he would never turn in his human form again…
“This place was once great…” Geal said, with a bit of pain and sympathy.
“Indeed, it was.” Xaio agrees.
Geal glanced at Xaio down. “Why are you doing this?” He asked.
“I beg your pardon?” Xaio glanced at him with a sly look.
“Why do you serve Lord Bloodfang?” He asked. “What did he give or promise to you in return for your servitude?”
Xaio glanced forward. “I was one of the lucky ones to survive the Isotixian Raid.” He spoke. “I call those the Dark Times.” He said.
“So you are one of them too…” Geal looked at the sky, his Wife was also a refuge.
“Mhm.” Xaio hummed. “Lord Bloodfang promised me, he will bring the Starwalker Tribe to justice by killing the High King Versing.” He said. “And to pay me for my servitude, he will help in rebuilding what once was.”
“I see…” Geal said, wondering if that was Siansa’s goal too. He didn’t know why she joined, but he needs to find it out.
Xaio with his Celestial Vision glanced up in the sky and saw the Constellation of the Eagle. “This way.” Xaio motioned for him to follow as he walked towards east-Nord.
“Do these stars tell you a path?” Geal asked.
“Yes, they do,” Xaio confirms.
As our Heroes walked, the place wasn’t much sightseeing. The only beautiful thing about the Tribe was the Forest the Starwalkers once lived in. But anyone could tell that the place was just now a mere shadow of what it once was.
The Eagle Constellation would continue to lead Siansa and Envarus, as it suddenly changed into something else. They would see a Wolf up in the sky, the manifestation of one such Wolf was that of Lightning, as it showed the continuous path towards the Thunderstorm Bow.
If not for Will, Amelia wouldn’t realize she wasn’t much in her area of expertise so she decided to let Siansa take the lead for once, because she was more likely going to bring them to their goal, faster than Amelia could.
Will silently walked towards Siansa and nudged his elbow against hers. “I knew somehow that Vision could become useful…” He teasingly remarks.
He wouldn’t be entirely ignored. “I can’t hear anything coming towards us,” Leandro said to Ernesto. “Which means that we are more likely walking towards something.”
“That something being the magical crackling lightning summoner and weather controller bow…” Norag remarks.
