Epilogue

Everything else became a blurr and Gloe disappeared from that point. Chloe just stared at Truss who was being strapped into a stretcher at that point. Sabine didn't wake up either and was being carried by Chase who didn't struggle to let her go when they traveled back home. 

After a few hours of silence, patrolling guards found them and called in for help, which everyone was ecstatic to actually come back alive and healthy. Everyone but Chloe, she was troubled for what she did and it placed a scar in her mind of the horrible image that she witnessed, She didn't want to believe it. Forcing it to be a dream. She looked up to see Rexcer staring at her in relief and looked troubled when he saw her face, she gave in no emotion, just a sign of guilt thinking if it was better if.... 


She didn't want to think about it, and she received a hug from him as the other two were sent into the guard's clinic and Oscar took charge with a couple of others who took a hand to help Truss. 


Three days have passed since then, and through those times Chloe stood outside of the door with Sabine who started to complain about the day and how sore she was, trying to escape from the bed to the point she was shackled from the ankles to prevent her from hurting herself. 

Chase came into the room and greeted them, as Sabine crossed her arms,showing a set of bandages wrapped tight around her upper waist and a bandage around her forehead with her wrist in a cast, "yo Mr. Chellin" she laughed with a cough, "Get the doc to let me out now, I'm tired of sitting around in this gloomy room...it's sucking all the fun and I feel like I'm getting fat" she complained. 

Chase shook his head, "Nope" he sat down on a chair, "Oscar told everyone to keep a close eye on you, last time you got out you broke your ribs again" he opened up a box that was filled with various color foods, "Here eat these they will help you with the healing" he handed her a set of berries and a few meat like ingredients, placing them on the tray and handing it to her. 

She just stares at it, "Uhhh...." she tilted her head in confusion. 

"What?" 

She snickered, "Nothing... nothing" she took a piece of the berry and ate it, "man I cant believe I am here... this is such a drag, I broke my leg when I was back in the ruins, but did anyone make me stay in a bed? NoooOOoo, fuck man this is so lame!" she crossed her legs on the bed and rails back on the pillow, then jerked back up, "Ow! My head!" she wailed, showing a tear as she rubs her back. 

Chase smiled and laughed, "I am glad you are in high spirits, even though you're an idiot" 

Sabine growled, "Watch it smart ass" she picked up one of the berries and tosses it at him as he dodged it. 

"Hey stop stop haha, you know these were not easy to find" he picked it back up and carefully wipes it, then bit it whole, "okay so how is Chloe?"

Sabine frowned and and sagged her shoulder, "I'm not sure..." her spirit faded when she thought about it, "When I woke up from this place, she was there but..." she gave in a hum, "well, it's weird to explain but have you ever seen a person who was there, but... not exactly all there?" she asked him. 

Chase eyes widened a bit and sat back down, "Yes..." he said regrettably, "she is under a lot of shock, and I think its due to the fact she shot her best friend?" 

Sabine sneered "What do you mean?" she gave in a look of confusion, "What exactly did she?" It then hit her, "Oh....wow...I never would have thought" 

"Chloe thought it was best they could do for him, she shot him to save you and me" 

Sabine flinched, "Ugh, wait you were in the way too?" she shook her head, "and what about.... the place?" she mewed as Chase placed a finger over his lips. 

"We will never speak of it" He told her, "if that place falls into the wrong hands....well if it gets in contact of anyone, I don't know what will happen" he mewed looking around. "just leave that part to me and Oscar okay" 

Sabine nodded, "and what about Truss?" she gulped, "what about him? Is he okay?" She asked. 

Chase paused for a moment, "Hey don't ignore me! What about Truss" 

"I don't know..." 

"What?!" 

"I said I don't know!" he snapped, "as far as I know Oscar is still treating him, and I have to go meet him at his house in a few. He sighed again, "he is very sick Sabine, probably the worst I have ever seen from any cat and he is under Oscar's care" he mewed, standing up, "Look you need to rest and please don't leave the bed this time" he asked looking tired, "I already have to deal with enough today, just once can you do something smart" he mewed and left the room. 

Sabine frowned and her ears dropped, looking at the food before her. With a sniff she wiped her nose and placed the plate of food on the counter beside her, "you're such a jerk" she blushed and placed her head on the pillow, "not the boss of me" 


-----------------------------------------

Truss laid on the bed gripping his claws on the blanket as his chest quickly rising and falling as Oscar works tirelessly on chemicals and herbs, mixing them through bowls and vials. His eyes were getting a bit red and his fur ragged as he lifts up a few things and handing them over to Truss, "Here take these" he lifted his head up and fed them slowly in his mouth as he cough Oscar stopped. When he relaxed he fed him again and laid him back down as he fights through his condition. 

His breaths were very shallow and it was a battle that Oscar frustrates that he has to fight alone. 

Then someone came bursting through his door, a cream colored Traditional cat who brought in a box with tools, "I came as soon as I got the word!" she raced up to him and feels over his head, "High fever, chest rising too quickly" she took a few whiff of his breath, "what is this?" 

Oscar rushed in with some water and places it over his forehead with a damp cloth and begins to feed him more water, "He has been infected with Anarchy" He mewed to her as he rushes back into working on his medicine. 

Maya turn her head to him, "Anarchy? what is that?" she said quickly as Truss started to jerk and grit his arms against his chest. 

"It's what I named the virus" he mewed, taking a tray and placing all the items he made, "Maya, Truss has consumed something that has become a part of his immune system and without it it's completely shut down" he hissed, brushing his face with his paws, "I have tried everything, herbs, remedies, particular foods" he began mixing the stuff together and held it up to lift Truss and began to pour it into his mouth, "he got hit with a poison mix, which is already gone but...its seems to have cause a negative reaction to the Anarchy and I have tried everything! This is just" 

"Oscar calm down!" she hissed as Truss began to relax, "look as Healers we need to figure this out together, and if you cannot function right then you should head for bed!" she growled, "I will take over from here! Give me your notes and I'll treat him in your place. You look like you haven't slept for days. And you're beginning to slip and talk in slurs" 


Oscars ears droop as his shoulders sag "Yeah... your right..." he stared at Truss, who began to still lightly jerk but was much more stable than before, "please if something comes up, notify me at once. Promise me that?" 

Maya nodded and watched as Oscar went through the room to see his mother and give her a hug as she leads him to bed. Maya then watched over Truss as she prepares her own medicine and replaces the damp cloth with a fresh one, "Truss if you can hear me right now, you know what you must do" she mewed as he started to jerk again and force his eyes open to look at Maya. The pupil of his eyes are blue mixed in with traces of purple lining, like his personality was changing. But really that was just how the effects of and advance source of Anarchy will do to you. The toxin in his body has became his own addiction and now he is fighting it off day after day. but the effects are become more severe as the virus is fighting back hard. "Truss you need to fight this! A lot of people suffered a lot to get you back and they don't want to waste that!" 

She mewed on and on as Truss's breath grew a bit shallow and the pain forced him to knock himself out, in exhaustion. Which was good considering his still body will prevent complications from the wounds he has already received. She looked around and saw a jar of concentrated globumpkin serum, collecting a dosage and serving it over to Truss with a paw as she lifted his chin to keep him sedated.

After that was just care and continue to clean him up....

---------------------- 

Two weeks have passed since the day Truss came back, it was the news to the Town but he was locked up in Oscars home since. His head was spinning as he looked up at the ceiling with nothing but a blur as Oscar holds up his head again with a cup of water and placed it in his hand, "Hey easy there, your getting a lot better" he mewed as Truss strongly drenched the cup down and coughed, "Easy I said, you'll be fine" 

Truss coughed again, "W-where am I?" he groan in pain as he tries to look around, "What happened to my eyes...why can't I see anything?" he blinked and felt a hand lightly push him down to the pillow below him.

"You have suffered a lot of damage to your body, I am doing everything I can to help you out" he mewed flicking his tail left and right, "Can you see the color of my tail? " he asked as Truss nodded, "Okay what color is it?" 

Truss squinted as he stared at it, "I think it's green?" 

He heard a scribbling from a paper, "Okay no color blindness, that's good, say what about my hand, how many fingers am I holding up?" 

Truss shook his head, "I don't know... looks like... two" it was four and Oscar shook his head as he closed Truss's eyes, "alright I need to make a few changes to your doses" He pulls out a chair, "Do you know who you are? What is your name? And what is your job?" 


Truss grinned, "Oscar why are you?" 

"Just... answer the questions-" 

And from then on it was nothing but medical questions and how he is feeling right now, which was nothing but agony and tension. He could barely lift himself out of bed. It was like he was running for days and days without sleep. Or a hangover that lasted forever, just focusing all it attention on his head. 

Then it came to the real question, "Truss, I need to know what happened to you?" he mewed. Truss eyes widened as he remembers the fight he had with the Mayor, the villain who he was trying to stop earlier before. 

"Augh, the Mayor!" he groaned, "He was up to something and I interfered, he....wanted to use...a red substance to do something to his guards" He rasped, " I fought him off and blew up the entrance to prevent him from reaching it" then his eye froze, "Oh no..." he looked at Oscar, "What happened to everyone? Where is Chloe, where is she-" 

"Whoa whoa whoa whoa, no not yet. You still need to regain your strength" He forced him back down. "like I said your body has suffered A LOT! Listen to your healer Truss" he mewed as Truss stood still, "Okay would it make you feel better if I get her for you?" he asked. 


Truss nodded, "Yes there was something very important I needed to tell her, it's very important" 

Oscar looked over at the counter and handed him a tray, then walked outside to look for her house, in a nutshell she wasn't there and when he asked Chase he said that she wasn't home for quite a while, one day she would come home for something to eat and quickly be gone out of the blue. 


It was almost like she did not want to be found, and after asking around with the citizens they didn't see any trace of her when she left the city. He told the news to Truss as he felt disappointed that she wasn't found around the time and asked why she hasn't been around. Damien came into the room later on with Lilith and Rexcer to welcome him home as they also shared conversations as to what has happened with the Mayor recently. Turns out his actions are becoming more grim that he could possibly imagine. But as long as the Anarchy was completely cut off from The Underground civilization. That is at least one less problem they would have to deal with in the future. 


But as far as the events of what he was told about the stress he had to endure with Chloe, he now understood and now he felt completely at fault for what she had to do, and the same to Sabine. She came in a few days before Rexcer and the others saying that she was pissed and that he owed her one which was payment for a new set of armor and a free punch in the face for whenever she wished it. An easy price to pay he guessed. 

His mind was still swirling with questions on the Mayor and the life itself of what is going on right now.... but his main focus was with Chloe. He felt so lost and at the same time trapped. As soon as he was able to Walk, he needed to find her and talk to her about the event. Or she may suffer a faith just as he did. 

She's going to get lost.....


To be Continued

"Damn Beast... Damn Bandits!" he yelled swinging his dull blade around against the crystals and plants, his eyes in bloodshot as his hair messy and long dragging around in his torn and ragged uniform. Almost shirtless with signs of cuts around him. "Why are you whispering to me!! Who is out there!" he looked around wildly and stares at the moving plants, "There you are!" he yells and smashes his sword into the soft gravel, splashing red water all over the place, "Finally peace and quiet" he pants and reaches down to bit into the plants, harvesting them up like a savaged animal. "Qho else..." he said hysterically as he looks around, glancing over at the group of new age cats and back towards the glowing crystals. 

He was clearly blind from the New age cats as he walked around, giving off whines, holding his head looking like he has a migraine, Chloe ran tears from her eyes as she steps forward quickly. 

Damien held out a hand but was out of reach, "Chloe wait!" 

"Truss!!" she cried, "Truss look at us, its us!!" she told him as Truss looks at her with sinister eyes, his vision blaring red with pupils that are stained half purple. He looked very sick and was getting a bit thin to where he didn't look normal, but more like a new monster. His teeth bared at her and stood up. 

"Damn bandit!!" he yelled as he lifted his sword, her eye widened when a arrow fired. He instantly dodged it with easy, even with the heavy blade he was fast. Chloe just froze their when Damien put down the bow and drifted into sword combat. 

"Chloe get out of there!" he yelled she she still stood frozen in fear seeing Truss pull up his blade again and roaring at her. She didn't cry but her eyes were in horror, he didn't have remorse on attempting to swing it down, but before he could succeed again, Chase rammed into him. 

They both collide against the bush of plants, "Truss, focus you have to stop, fight this virus!!" he hissed at him as Truss rage wildly on the ground, half his body drown in the water, "I am sorry I cannot let you hurt her, DON'T MAKE ME DO THIS!" he pulls out a blade and aimed it at his body. I just need to sustain him, I don't need to kill-  his thoughts stopped as a fist collided with his face, feeling a rush of blood swelling over his cheek. Stunned a kick collided with his stomach, flying back and somersaulting near Chloe as she snaps back into reality, "Chloe lets get back!" he groaned, holding his stomach....then he threw up from the kick he received and held it in as he pulled Chloe back, sliding her across the water.

"You want more coward! Come at me!" he rushed up with a broken sword when the blade clashes with Damien, "I will make sure you all die!!" he yelled, giving out a battle cry. 

For once in his life, Damien felt terrified of this kind of truss...no this wasn't even Truss, it was a much...much darker entity that has taken him over. His strength was fading fast and the broken blade, despite its dullness was weighing him down like a wall moving back with no fail. "Giiiah....alright then if that is how you want to play!" he turned his body around  and forced Truss to loose his footing, when he was over him, he kneed him in the stomach and with two hands on the hilt of his blade he bashed it around his head. Watching him tumble to the ground, "hopefully that stopped yo-" In a quick flash, he leaped out of the water and grappled on his neck, squeezing it tight as he carefully lifts him up, "Ack....ugh...gasp" his strength was astounding as Truss looks up at him with a growl, showing blood weld from his head. 

"Weak!" with another cry he ran dragging him across the red pool and against a wall, knocking his breath out as Truss held out a set of claws to pry his armor. 

When he reached for his face, Damien held it and kicked him away, watching the wild cat staggered back as Damien gasped for air, Sabine raced up with her blade as he stares right at her, "Truss stop this mess!!" she hissed four feet in front of him, "is there any reaching to you!?" she looked at him closely as Truss looks around, blindly like before and picking a random target, "you can't really see who we are can you?" she mewed looking back at the defeated group as Oscar helps Chase with his wounds. 

Damien was still recovering when Truss found his Beast hook sword, looking back at his selected target with was Damien, "shit I need to distract him!" she looked around seeing one of the shards of the crystals, quickly she reached into the water to pick up the dead crystal and threw it at Truss as he growled angrily, "Furball!" she hissed, "hows about we fight like old time! Me and you!!" she cried out as Damien stared out, open his mouth to protest but only gave out a wheeze. 

Truss smiled and with his gritted teeth he rushed in for another battle, when he swung the blade, her eyes went wide as she leaps up in the air, watching it spin and collide against a wall and she jumps back to give herself some space, almost slipping under the water.

Oscar was stunned at the battle as he helped Chase, holding his mouth back to show he lost a tooth.

Chase slapped his hand away, "Now is not the time to worry about me!" he hissed, spitting off the blood from his mouth, "crysis...holy molly that hurt" he mumbled, "(pant) look we're both geniuses, we have to figure out a way to stop Truss and that means we need to do something drastic" he looked around and noticed a torn arrow and to the side was a bow. Quickly grabbing them together and holding them in front of Oscar, "look here, I know this is against your healing...but I need you to do something that can save us?" 

A moment talk through medicine and calculations with them as Sabine dodged his attacks which were wild and miss unrestrained. She was already getting tired from running around and Damien was close to recovering and joining back. "What?!" Oscar yowled as he hold the chemicals in front of him, "No I will not do that! Its against all medicine care!" 

"We don't have a choice right now!" he hissed back, "If we don't do something he is going to kill us all" he placed the chemicals in front of him, "I know you know what it's made of, and I am asking you to make it under his care" he stared at him as he looked down at the arrow, "Trust me on this please" 

Oscar still froze and looked up at the sound of Truss yelling at Sabine, calling her every name in the book, "Just do it!" his attention turned to Chloe as she picked up her bow, "Please if we don't do it, someone is going to get seriously hurt...I'll take the shot" she closed her eyes, trying to hold in tears and concentrate on a new target. 

Oscar was stunned at her choice, then he snapped, "are you all INSANE!?" he yelled, "This is a living being, not a beast or a enemy of war!" he gripped the sand until he heard a cry from Sabine who was cut from her chest from the edge of the beast hook blade, Flipping back and holding her chest to feel the armor was penetrated. But it wasn't fatal as she growled and continues to distract him, "But I'll do it! I'll do it, dammit!" he grabbed the chemicals and begins mixing them together. 

Sabine started panting and pulled her blade out forward to lung at him, but he quickly dodged it, allowing her to pass in momentum and grabbed her by the tail, "Hey lay off!" with her blade she lashed at the bare armor of his chest and Truss cried in pain as he staggered back feeling the blood begin to run down from the top of his chest. But it only phased him a bit as he picked the heavy blade back up and walked up. 

Sabine realized what she did and stood back, "okay...this isn't fun anymore..." she mewed afraid as he swung the sword, her eye widen as she jumped to dodge over it, but he made a double spin as she saw it collide against her waist. 

She felt the whole impact of the middle edge of the blade, it was like a club five times the size and used by the strongest brute being swung straight at her body, and everything in her stomach was churning, then next point was the impact threw her against the wall and everything in her vision turn black instantly when she rammed her head against the wall. 

Everything went silent.....

Oscar stopped his mixing when he looked up at the limp body, seeing her roll over towards the water. 

Chase eyes flashed as he left Oscar and sprinted over to her, "Sabine!!" he yelled, skidding through the water and keeping her head up, his eyes were in horror as he sees her eyes in a lifeless like state, he panic, "Sabine?! Sabine! Hey!" he placed his head against her chest and laid her flat against the surface over the water, "shit shit shit!" he pulled out a knife and started to remove some of her chest armor, "Come on, don't do this to me!" he hissed. 

Chloe starred terrified as she turns to Oscar, who stared down at the black liquid. When Chloe looked back to see Chase caring for Sabine Truss begins to walk up for another swing, "Chase!" 

Damien rushes up and rolls his arms under him and wrestling him back, "Stay away from them!" he hissed moving him around as he thrashes back and for, "Chloe!!" his voice was horsed as he kept him in place, "Take...argh.. that the shot!" Truss ran back and based him against the wall, but he didn't let go. 

Oscar dipped the arrow into the bottle and tapped it over top Chloe, "Chloe!" she turned, her face looking at the sharp tip of the blade, made of razor sharp iron. Her heart was racing and she trembled when she reached for the arrow, and when she touched it...she felt like a child again, the life flashed before her eyes as she remembers her first time to kill. When her father steady the aim of her bow hunting....she felt exhilarating and pure with the flow of using that extension to bring something good for the city. 

But this was different...instead of good she was going to use it as a weapon,something she was never prepared for in her whole life. But even in the thought process she noticed that the arrow was already prepared and aiming right at him. It was a nightmare, but it felt like a rig of poison in her head. 

She drown out the voice of everyone yelling and the yelling of Truss...she couldn't tell who this person was anymore...was it her friend... or a monster... a lost soul... completely possessed, a desire, hatred, confusion? what is going on in my head!! She shut everything out and her tunnel vision was active. But instead of the simple glare of increase vision, the tunnel was black. 

What would the spirits think of her, "Chloe!!!" Truss broke free and threw him over, pulling Damien own sword and ready to jab it into him. 


Truss...please...stop...Stop!... "STOP!!" With a fling the arrow zapped through the air with a whistle and just like that their was a loud thud against flesh. 

Truss froze and dropped the sword, and knelled into the pool as his eyes froze to feel the arrow against his back as he jerks and begins to cough and struggle against the ground. Chloe felt a pain in her head as she dropped the bow, "what have I done..." she ignored Oscar as he passes her and rushes for the attention to Sabine first. 

Chase looked at him with distraught eyes asking what has happened to her as Oscar felt around her body, "It's okay she is still alive" he mewed, feeling around her neck, "we need to be careful, she has suffered a concussion" he got up and pulled some things from his bag, "Do not move her yet!" he ordered him as he rushes back to Truss who begins to start foaming around the mouth. 

"Hey stay with me, eat this!" he forced a black rock down his throat and reached around his back to remove the arrow tainted with the black poison he was injected with, "Easy now" he breaks the tip of the arrow to make another fine tip and pulls out a vial with a golden like substance then jabbed it back into the same area as Truss just jerked with rasping pants, "Its okay.... you're going to be fine" he mewed as Truss began to cry, and drifts off breathing heavily. 

Damien held his arm as he looks around the area, already loosing his mask, "lets get the hell out of here, everyone out!" 
The Lost Guard Part 6
Edited by EternalFyre413 
Okay serious think got pretty intense from this point and I had to do alot of thinking around in this. 

Also I noticed I made some hard points on the characters, if they seem off...then I am sorry I tried hard on this. This is the longest story i ever wrote for TUC. 

So said in legends from the book when a couple of felines permanently disappeared.

Previous:  The Lost Guard Part 5"This is it" Damien looked up at the cave entrance seeing the end zone of the signs with the warning and the mouth cave in the shape of a beast. 
"Wait a minute, I thought this place was a myth" Oscar looked over his head, "Do you have any idea what this place is?" he told them. 
"Beast Skull" Chase said in a low tone as he looks up, shaken by the horrors of the word, "This is where many have passed and said to have disappeared" he shook his head, "But it was a myth that they were gone...but I...don't like the looks of this place regardless" he mewed looking at the lizard who started scratching at the walls to get the scent trapped in the rocks. 
Sabine gave in a few whiffs and her fur rose into contained anger, "something isn't right about this place" she half growled, walking up to the walls and feeling around the edges between the rock and crystals, then looked back on the floor, "Damien even you can smell that right?' she told him. 
Damien nodded, "yeah, this pl

"This is it" Damien looked up at the cave entrance seeing the end zone of the signs with the warning and the mouth cave in the shape of a beast. 

"Wait a minute, I thought this place was a myth" Oscar looked over his head, "Do you have any idea what this place is?" he told them. 

"Beast Skull" Chase said in a low tone as he looks up, shaken by the horrors of the word, "This is where many have passed and said to have disappeared" he shook his head, "But it was a myth that they were gone...but I...don't like the looks of this place regardless" he mewed looking at the lizard who started scratching at the walls to get the scent trapped in the rocks. 

Sabine gave in a few whiffs and her fur rose into contained anger, "something isn't right about this place" she half growled, walking up to the walls and feeling around the edges between the rock and crystals, then looked back on the floor, "Damien even you can smell that right?' she told him. 

Damien nodded, "yeah, this place smells like a battle field" He looks down at a rough patch and felt around the floor, picking up dried remains of what looks like dead fur, "felines have been here before and there used to be a war around here" he looks at Sabine, "are those walls filled with cuts?" 

Sabine nodded, " Several, and on this crystal there is a black residue that smells like metal, it could be blood...but really old, maybe years" 


Chloe look interested, "so you're saying there was a recent war around here, but why nearby the Beast Skull?" 

"Maybe Truss was trying to figure out the same thing" he pointed at a wall that showed a Large claw mark against the wall with shaved shards of crystal, "does this cut remind you of anything?" he told them. 

Damien's eyes rose in surprise, "It cant be a beast, it's too clean..." 

Oscar looked down at the dried blood and the fur patches on the ground, scooping some of them up and placing them in containers and opened his bag to put them in the collectors, "my wonder is where are the bodies" he told himself as he sat back up, "hey you guys" he strapped the backpack on his shoulders again, "we should get moving" He mewed looking at the metal shavings and claw marks, "this place is making me uneasy" 

Sabine crossed her arms to give herself comfort and nodded, "I agree" she pulled out her single bladed sword and held it firmly, "that bastard gonna pay one day" she gave in a breath, and calmed down. 

Damien held onto his sword and step towards the dark cave with crystals of red glowing through the plain, Chloe and Chase followed behind, Chase chattering beneath his teeth as Chloe looked around herself uneasy over the smell of welled rust and metal. 

--------------------------------------------------------

Not even a few steps when they walked in from the mouth of the Beast, there was just pure darkness where only their tails glowed around the cave entrance, "This is ridiculous!" Chase complained trying to squint to see ahead of him, "this place is a nightmare, not even a torch fire would help light the place up" 

Chloe ears shot up and reached around her back, "Oh I think I have something that can help with that" She pulled out a few stick and two vials" I learned this on a hunting trip on day with my mentor" she mewed as everyone stopped to see what she is doing . 

"By mixing two pre made chemicals, then uses a small fire flint to make a miniature explosion as it caused the whole container to glow, "and their we go one glow light" she pulled out one of her arrows and lathered it around the feathers of the bow, then she prepared to aim it " alright and now we just aim in a direction and fire. "

They all stared as it zapped its way through the cave that glowed in green as it pinged against a rock wall and brightened the area like it was a set of crystals, "Wow" Chase looked at her surprised, "that was...AWESOME!, I didn't know you knew how to even do that!" 


Chloe gave him a wink, "Comes with the class of being a hunter" she mewed pulling out another arrow from her quiver and fired, "Alright follow Gloe down the path, I'll take lead on opening a trail" she mewed firing another arrow through the awkward tunnels. 

Sabine nose started to itch, being irritated by the small, "God this place is worse!, what the fuck is that smell!?" she hissed, holding her nose. 

Damien stared her, "Will you calm down, I can only smell metal" he snarled holding his sword tighter as he stared ahead. 

Sabine looked at him, "Look Damien I'm serious, something is not right with the air around here, I'm suffocating in some stuff and its irritating me" She mewed to a low moan. 

Oscar looked around and looked back at her, "I'm not sure she is faking it" he mewed pulling out a contraption from his bag and placed it over his mouth. 


Damien raised a brow, it looked like a mouth cover with some sort of large bag attached to the side, "and what in the crystals is that?" he asked raising a brow. 

Oscar looked up and muffled, "if this place has any content around I will know, these are uncharted territories and if we find gases Ill see the symptoms first hands and get you guys out" he assured them, "Let me move up" he told them, "Time I did some work for once" 

Sabine looked at him jealous" say you wouldn't happen to have an extra pair on ya?" she asked as Oscar shook his head. 


"Only had room for one" he replied and took a look at Sabine who was holding her nose, "Listen if you started to feel nauseating, feverish, or drowsy, let me know okay" he asked as Sabine nodded. Trying to control of her senses. Even Gloe was having problems and started sneezing. 

Chloe fired another arrow and stopped until she started to see a glow of red, "Hey I see light" she told them as Chase sighed. 

"Finally, my eyes were beginning to get blurry seeing all of this green and blue" he walks up and pulled out a cloth and rope to wrap it around the lizard's nose to keep it from sneezing, "Now I am beginning to wonder what is in the air, this stuff doesn't sound too healthy" 

They all agreed and reached up to the red light were it began to create a warmth in the cave entrance. and once they have reach around the corner, everyone was shocked. 

Chloe froze when she looked around, the same expression from everyone....Damien took a step forward and stepped into a red puddle, looking down, "W-what?" he looks up over at the glowing fragments that opened up and to the side of them. 

Words could not describe the phenomenon that belonged here, a wave of red water poured out from the crystals as a hand has fallen from the side along with a few mangle furs... and to Sabine's surprise she started to feel nauseating to the point she had to move to the side and throw up. her field of vision fading a bit and looking up feeling feverish.

There were bodies.... a lot of them, some were children to Sabine that she started to cry as the floor was left with a battlefield, her head was swirling with confusion as one of them began to crawl up, "What is this?" she gasped pulling up her blade, looking terrified, "W-what happened here" 

She noticed her crew was gone and when she turned she saw more bodies rise up with swords, "Stay away from me!" she hissed, her tail between her legs when she could only hear moans and yowling from both tradition cats and new age cats alike in different ages. 

"I said stay away!!" she swung her blade at the figures before her. But before she could strike at a single one. A hand caught it and pulled back to hold her tight to the ground, "NO LEAVE ME ALONE! GET OFF OF ME! NOOO!!" Tears ran down her face as she struggled wildly when the corpses dragged over her body and clamped around her neck, creating suffocation. 

Her rasping breathing and struggling intensifies as she saw one of them looking like a new age guard to pull out a thin sword and held it up against her chest, She screamed and felt the blade impale her as her mind went black into a senseless void....

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Sabine gasped as she opens her eyes into darkness of a bunch of blurry figure on top of her, she winced from the light coming off the tails as she opened her mouth to breath in something very rotten but very dry like oil. 

"hello" a voice echoed in her head as she looked up wondering who they are, "what the heck just happened?" the voice trailed off as Oscar lifts up a bag and hold her up, "Sabine? Hey snap out of it!" she felt a few taps to the face as she shook her head trying to look around more clearly. 

"Oscar?" she mewed under her breath looking over at the others who held her down from arm to arm, she looks down between her muzzle to see some sort of bag filled with what looks like black rocks, "w-what is thi-" she reached for the bag as Oscar stopped her.  

"Stop, this coal is the only thing keeping you away from the spores" he hissed as she looks over at the others, wearing similar stuff around their faces like they were preventing a disease from spreading, "Hey focus, look at my paw" he waved, "what do you see?" 

Sabine winced as she looks closer at his hand, "I see an asshole waving at me like I'm an idiot" she groaned and held her head. 

Damien placed his sword back, "She's back to her old self" he sighed holding his arm. 

Chase was look around shaken up, "no this isn't normal!" he yowled, "look did you not see what just happened to her? She turned into a feral beast and almost chopped my head off!" he yelled at him. 

Oscar turned back, "It's not her fault!" he hissed, "Start using your head and look at the air around you, this stuff was in the samples too!" 

Chase wanted to retort at him as Chloe walked up and stopped him, "Calm down, dear brother I thought you can handle this! We saw something that caused a teammate to turn, she was showing signs too" she sighed, "this doesn't make sense, why would she turn into something like that, calling us monsters. Is she mentally ill?" 

Damien crossed his arms, "This explains the missing bodies from the Beast Skull entrance" he mewed looking at Sabine, "just look at her eyes, their blood shot" 

"Back off asshole" she tried to move and struggled, "Wha- why am I tied up!" she hissed  holding up her leg and grabbing for a small dagger. 

Chase eyes shot up as he reaches for her blade, "No stop" she cuts the rope and frees herself from the rope, "Augh..come on Sabine that was a rental!" 

Sabine gave in a retort and dropped the remains on the ground, "Hmph, shouldn't have tied me up then" she started staggering and balanced herself on the boulder, coughing, "man why does it feel like I've ran for days" she panted. 

Oscar placed a hand and helped her up, "Let me see something" he hold her hand up and places two fingers against her forearm, "your adrenaline is going down dramatically, the spores will be out of your system in a few minutes if you keep breathing through that mask" 

Damien stepped up, walking around Gloe, "but why did it affect her and not us?" he asked to Oscar as Chase listen in. 

Oscar hands her a bottle of water and forces herself to drink it down, "I think her Olfactory glands in her nose are much more sensitive than everyone here" he mewed. 

Sabine coughed as she finished the bottle, "In English doc?" 

Chase sighed, "Your nose, you're reactive to this...chemical in the air" 

"Smartass, (cough)" she forced herself up and took a deep breath, "Uggh and is that red light part of the effect too" she staggered forward. 

Chloe Interrupted, " actually no, we don't even know where this stuff is coming from" she mewed. 

"Well one way to find out" Damien held up his sword, "Okay this is going to be tricky, keep your mask on at all times and first sign of delusions go to Oscar as soon as possible" he coughed as well, "man this bag is stuffy, makes my nose itch" 

Sabine grinned, "now you know how I feel" 

----------------------------------------------- 
They walked deeper into the mysterious cave that glowed red with flakes of rusty colored mist flying in the air with a bit of wind brushing past them. Everyone was moving more cautiously as Sabine stood casually in the front, where she kept peering back to see them staring at her, "Look I'm fine, stop worrying about me" she growled rubbing her shoulder from the weighted armor she wore. 


Chloe kept quiet about it as she heard the whispers of the wind passing by as she kept her eyes on Gloe, "I wonder why he isn't being effected by this?" she asked Chase who was keeping his mind off things and looking around the wall. 

His attention then turned to Chloe while adjusted his mask, "Oh w-well" he looked at the creature who crackles and echoes in the caves, "If my theory is right, it could be his immune system, he is a reptile I believe and they have cold blooded systems meaning they have a different way of adjusting their environments...as do we are warm Blooded mammals who highen blood temperatures even in the same environment" he shifted his head to Gloe, "another theory could be his nose can filter out elements in the air as he breaths, they do dig underground for a long period of time, and I think they can hibernate" 

Chloe studied Chase, "hibernate?" 

"Yes" he repeated, "it explains why not many of them have been found since the last time you and Truss encountered one as well as the reported claim around the lake with the Vendor from Tradition City" he mewed, "I haven't studied Gloe that much from his stages but I believe they have the ability to hibernate underground deep within the caves below near the lava were it is warm" he flicked his ear, "but if that was the case then Gloe would have the same effect....hmm" he started to think. 

Chloe looked back forward staring at Damien, "I wonder too, did we mess up his cycle to be a proper animal?" she asked him, she began to feel bad for the lizard. Pretty much she took him from its mother maybe, but she didn't know at the time, she thought it was a normal grown lizard.  

Chase finally answered, "I would assume so, we have tamed him to the point he will listen to basic commands, but seeing how its domestic became his new way of figuring things out on his own" he shrugged, "But its hard to know if this is a bad thing, I need more time to study him" 

Damien looked back, "hey genius, when we head 'BACK" we need to have a talk about this thing" 

Chase nodded and didn't reply.

Oscar stood close around Sabine as he looked around her, Sabine rolled her eyes, "Will you leave me alone? Geez you guys are weird" she hissed as he stood back. 

"S-sorry" he mewed looking back, "umm how are you feeling, you still look sweaty around your palms" he pointed out, "also your tail is wildly wagging like its aiming for prey" 

Sabine blussed, "What the hell do I look like a bloody specimen!?" she bared her fangs, "look here smart guy, maybe it's cause I'm nervous of what happened, oh I don't know... scared!" she yelled, " and the next time you wonder about my behind waving my own tail, I'll give you a-" everyone stopped and froze. 

A moaning roar streamed through the cave as Sabines hairs rose to the top, "Okay...I'm seriously scared right now...what the hell was that!" she looked around her ears flickering like crazy, "Am I going nuts again?" she looked around her coal bag to see if it was still on. 

Turning around she saw Chloe and Chase hugging Damien with shaken arms, "apparently not" Damien mewed hearing it again, "Get off!" he yowled putting them aside, "What is that, a cave beast?" 

Sabine shook her head, "it sounded more like a person" she pulled out her blade and held it near, "could it be another one like what happened to me?" she told them as they started to regain their bearings and held out their weapons. 

Oscar look up at Sabine, "if only I could find a substance of where this....pollen like substance is coming from" he told her, "my curiosity is rising, I would like to know the source of this" 

The sounds happened again, as Damien stepped forwards, "if only"  he started to pace towards the sound with his tail light high in the air to brighten the room. At the end he began to see red from a corner of a tight entrance. 

When he turned over he disappeared with a sigh, "guys?" he called for them. 

As soon as the others made it over they all began to have the same feeling seeing nothing but a very enclosed space  that would make you think was a crack, and from far away it also looks like a volcanic crack but instead was an radiation of red light, "dead end?" Oscar presumed as Damien tapped the sides. 

"Looks like it, I think this is what was making the sounds by the cracks" he told him, "strange though...it's as if this place was part of an explosion." 

Chloe eyes raised up, "Wait could this place be gaseous?" she wondered. 

Chase nodded, "It's a possibility that they are flammable, but the volume here is thicker, it must have build up behind the wall and made an escape" 

Damien pulled out a baseball size item with a fuse placed on it, "I see burn marks around this, its filled with explosive cells"  

Oscar took a step back, "Well if your planning to use that then I must reconsider that you shouldn't, you could kill us all!" 

Damien put it back, "I knew that but what other way through this?" 

Sabine shrugged, "Find another way around?" 

"we don't have that much time" Chloe protested. 

Chase jumped it, "Hook if we use out heads there might be a safer way through, we can use the bomb and take a chance to backtrack all the way towards the-" they all stared at Gloe who rushed in and turned into a ball, smashing hard into the cracked wall that rippled down, then with its large claws it tore down the wall and started to dig through it easily, breaking free from the other side making a crawl space for them to squeeze through. 

"Way to go Gloe!" Chloe praised as she looks through the major glow of the hole, "lets go" she instantly follows through the hole to meet her companion next door.

Damien looked surprised, "wait hold up, we should just" Oscar follows suit as well as Sabine and Chase, "Oh geez" he duck down and looked through the hole, then took a breath and walked through it. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


It only took a few minutes to put everyone at awe when they stared up at a large area filled with red crystals and plants  with red bulbs on them. 

"Where are we?" Said Chloe as Oscar looked over at one of the plants that grew over from the rocks and the caves.

"What on earth?" he stared at the plant and notice that Chase was beside him. 

He lashed his tail as he stood over Oscar, "What an odd plant, is that fungus?"  he mewed reaching his hands over at the bud that rose over the thing, "It looks like a Globumpkin plant" 

Chloe looked in surprise from the other plants around her, "That's cause they are" she stared across from the garden of corrupted flowers, they held on like Globumpkins would with their blue and purple fruit. 

Sabine began to hold her head as she stares across at Chase, "This place looks so nice" she mewed looking at the crystals and plants that fused as one. Suddenly their was a pop and their direction faced down at a plant that puffed open spores, "So that is where the spores are coming from" Sabine pointed out. 

"I think I know what's going on" Chase looked at Oscar, "This, fungus is a mutation to the plants around it, they seem to have built a factory within themselves and created these spores" He reaches over and puts his bag down to pull out a vial, "Oscar do you think we would be able to analyze this plant back at home. This mutation could hold some hidden properties" 

Oscar squint, "I am a healer, not a researcher, also do you think it is wise to bring something like that" He asked him as Chase shrugged. 

Sabine held her stomach, "Uuugh whatever this place is, its beginning to make me nauseous" Everyone looked at her from shock, Oscar walked up to her and stared at her eyes, "Umm can I help you with something?" She mewed and gave in a few blink, then got the memo, "Now hold on, I said my stomach hurt no" she gasped and looked up, her eyes in horror. 

Oscar focused on her, "Sabine...calm down...its okay we can-" she held onto his wrist. 

She looked at him with kind eyes, "Oscar....I am fine" she mewed, "Its just... I smell blood, do you guys not smell it too?" she mewed nervously as everyone looked at each other and tried to take a whiff through the makeshift mask. 

Damien shook his head, "I don't smell it" he mewed. 

Gloe snorted and began to growl as he stared up ahead into the dead of nothing but red light, "What's with Gloe?" Chloe asked while Chase walked up to him and stares at the direction seeing a shadow pass by. Making his fur reach up on edge in fear, "we're not alone here" his breathing rose as he stood back up and reached for his bag to pull out a dagger. "Damien.... Sabine?" he whispered as they both stood forward and reached for their weapons. 

"I'm on it" she mewed pulling out her single short blade. taking a step towards the blinding light. 

Sabine and Damien focus were on edge as they entered the cluster of red crystals with small pools filled with red liquid that almost looks like glowing blood. 

Everyone was in the back as Gloe stayed behind looking around at the plants that popped open and spraying off its spores. It then got irritated from the cluster of the smell and burrow itself underground. 

Damine felt his palms sweaty, scanning the area for anything that moves. But so far it was just crystals and spores, but something nerved him to swing the blade right now at something, "Do you see that?" he asked Sabine. 

She nodded, "Yeah I see it" she squinted her eyes, "And I hear it too, someone is here?" she mewed hearing the moan and steps behind the factory of these red stones.

Eventually the moaning was getting louder and louder, Chloe, Oscar, and Chase look around, eventually noticing that the area was getting much wider as the air became thicker and less with the spores flying around. 

Sabine looked around over at the edge of a fog filled with a red mist, but at the end she could see a shadow, "Who's there!" she hissed. They all paused when a figure stood before them, the moan turn into growled as their swords lower down, "no way..." Damien took a step and the vision of the red eyes focused towards him and Sabine. 

"Rrraaah....More beast..." the figure panted as he lifted a heavy blade from his hands and slams it down revealing a sharp glowing blue tip, everyone eyes widened when they saw the signature blade built by the blacksmiths themselves. 

His teeth were baring sharp as he jumps out from the fog and dry blood dribbled down his messy face, "you guys never quit!!" he yelled as he took a step, giving off a bit of a stagger as he pulls his dull blade towards them. 

Sabine started to shake and left her guard down, "is that?" she couldn't speak any words as Chloe eyes almost left into tears from the sight of their long lost friend. Who was long lost finally found in this hell of a place. 

"Truss...."

Beast Skull ^^ A place from the uncharted I though of where they claim it to be one of the most cursed areas in TUC

So said in legends from the book when a couple of felines permanently disappeared. 
 
Next Part: The Lost Guard Part 6"Damn Beast... Damn Bandits!" he yelled swinging his dull blade around against the crystals and plants, his eyes in bloodshot as his hair messy and long dragging around in his torn and ragged uniform. Almost shirtless with signs of cuts around him. "Why are you whispering to me!! Who is out there!" he looked around wildly and stares at the moving plants, "There you are!" he yells and smashes his sword into the soft gravel, splashing red water all over the place, "Finally peace and quiet" he pants and reaches down to bit into the plants, harvesting them up like a savaged animal. "Qho else..." he said hysterically as he looks around, glancing over at the group of new age cats and back towards the glowing crystals. 
He was clearly blind from the New age cats as he walked around, giving off whines, holding his head looking like he has a migraine, Chloe ran tears from her eyes as she steps forward quickly. 
Damien held out a hand but was out of reach, "Chloe wait!" 
"Truss!!"


Previous:  The Lost Guard Part 4Neal walked through the sides keeping his eyes on the creature before him as he lead them through the tunnels, "So let me get this straight" he paused and looked at the others around him, "You're looking for your boyfriend Truss and trying to take him back home" he stared at Sabine. 
"Whoa there preacher, I am not his boy friend, but Chloe on the other hand" she snickered as Chloe blushed.
"Absolutely not!" She growled as Sabine waves in surrender laughing, "Anyways we are looking for him cause we care about him a lot. And We know he is Alice somewhere in the uncharted" 
Neal only listened as he looked at the lizard creature, "and I'm guessing this thing is your....ticket to find him?" he said keeping his cool as he stared blankly at the lizard creature who lunged down and buried its face to find more of a scent, "and you're saying this creature is much better at sniffing out other felines? Are you serious..." He looked to the side, "and after I thought seeing and hearing voi

Neal walked through the sides keeping his eyes on the creature before him as he lead them through the tunnels, "So let me get this straight" he paused and looked at the others around him, "You're looking for your boyfriend Truss and trying to take him back home" he stared at Sabine. 

"Whoa there preacher, I am not his boy friend, but Chloe on the other hand" she snickered as Chloe blushed.

"Absolutely not!" She growled as Sabine waves in surrender laughing, "Anyways we are looking for him cause we care about him a lot. And We know he is Alice somewhere in the uncharted" 

Neal only listened as he looked at the lizard creature, "and I'm guessing this thing is your....ticket to find him?" he said keeping his cool as he stared blankly at the lizard creature who lunged down and buried its face to find more of a scent, "and you're saying this creature is much better at sniffing out other felines? Are you serious..." He looked to the side, "and after I thought seeing and hearing voices were weird, but I bet it cannot sniff out a soul" he countered. 

Sabine gave in a snort, "I think someone is jealous" she snickered, "Seeing and hearing souls better than sniffing a guy out? Ha-" she gritted her teeth as Damien stared at her. 

"Your point?" he asked her. 

Sabine glared at her, "My point? Well my point is...umm well..." She started to look up thinking, "I don't know!, Geez umm well I guess we can track marking with our noses..." She got stuck and stared at Damien, "Oh shut up, fricken lawyer like braniac"

Neal stopped and looked around, "Stop" he commanded and everyone stopped in their track with the lizard being pulled back, "I sensed something up ahead" he mewed, blinking once and turning back, "someone is following us" 
 
Sabine blinked and turned back to see a shadow with glinting eyes as she pulled out her short sword, "Oh yeah I got this one!" she rushed through the tunnel with her tail high to give off light through the tunnel, "Hey Asshole! I'm talking to you, hey!" She hissed rushing for the glowing light, "I can hear your breathing amateur" she said silently as she slowed down and lowers her tail into a crawl and focused on the dim light. Behind her she could hear the rushing of her friends following up. 

Then she hear a huff and she dashed around a rock and held up her arms, "Gotcha!" she hissed and in an instant her heart stopped, "Wh-...what?" her snarl instantly turned into a Mew as she notice a small Traditional cat scrambling against the corner screaming his head of. 

"Please don't kill me, I promise I wont do anything, I didn't see nothing...I'm sorry!!" he cried as Sabine placed her sword back. 

"Oh man...ugh...calm down I am not going to hurt you!" she mewed, already feeling guilty of her attitude Chasing this little guy down. It was only a kitten, male with brown dots around its pelt. 

"What is going on here!" Chase mewed across the tunnel as the kid still rolled up scared. 

Sabine held out an arm to offer to pick it up, "Look kid I am a New Age guard, you don't have to be-" she flinched as the kitten bit her hand and she retreated, "Ouch you little-" she turn back to see the crowd as she rubed her hand. 

Neal looked over to spot the little kitten, "Phillip, is that you?" his voice got to him and the little kit looked up in surprise. 

He was relieved, "Neal!" he rushed in to met his eyes, "Am I glad to see you, these guys they-" 

"They are not our enemies" he told him, looking up at Sabine, "At least I think they are" 

Sabine placed her hands against her hips, "Hey shorty, I said I was sorry" he shrugged, "But really though I am sorry...didn't mean to scare ya kid...thought you were one of those bandits" she mewed. 

"Bandit?" He huffed his cheeks and half hid behind Neal, "I am no bandit!" he hissed, "Neal why are they so mean!" 

Neal turned away and stared at him, "Maybe its concern for you, what in the spirits possessed you to paw your way all the way out here without proper supervision" the little kit paused and just stared, "Where is your mother, she must be worried sick"

"But I...was just curious, why you always left the city" 

"Why I leave the city is my own business, not for some under minded kit like yourself" He lectured, "Sigh...damn..." he stared back at the group of New-age citizens, "well I can't let you go back alone" he mewed, "Everyone I am afraid I can only lead you to the edge of this place and turn back, I have to send this little guy home before he is deeply missed by his mother" 

Sabine nodded, "hey at least you got us this far, with or without powers and all" 

Neal flinched and rolled his eyes, I don't have powers, He wanted to say but shook his head, "whatever" he mewed and pushed through the crowd, Come on everyone I'll take you to the edge of the Charted south system" 

Damien let out a yawn, "Finally, was tired of staying in one place" he mewed and looked around noticing something odd, "wait, where is Chase and Gloe?" he asked as they heard a thump of a lizard rushing up and dragging Chase around by the leash. 

They all blinked, "Does that answer your question?" Chloe replied as Philip's eyes widen from the mysterious creature. 

He took a step, "Awe so cool!! What is that thing!?" 

Neal looked down, "Don't ask.." he turns away seeing Chase has regain control of the lizard which gave him a lap in the face with its scaly tongue. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once the commotion has died down and they continued to walk, Philip could not resist but ask a couple of questions to them over and over, Damien didn't really feel like talking and focused on the area around him, Chloe was a bit of the same but she gave out a few charming answers, But Chase and Sabine were chatter boxes through the whole thing and They even let him ride on top of the Crystal back lizard as it dug around the earth, even thought it was unnecessary right now. But it was best to allow its freedom for now and regroup later. 

"So your a Guard? and your a Tutor?" he repeated over and over, "Oh man what is that life like, I bet it is just as awesome as Tradition City's Guards!" 

Sabine laughed, "well kid I'll tell you one thing, there isn't as much action as being a wild Rogue that's for sure" she boasted, "Before I became a guard, I was a prime time heroine" she lied claiming to be a highly wanted thief criminal from the Ruins. 

Chase coughed at her lie, even though she was trying to make a good impression on the kit, "even though being a guard and all is fun, their is also a lot of danger involves" he opens his books and shows it to him, "while study and using your brain also functions wonders through life" he points out as Sabine scoffs holding her arms back. 

"well yeah having a brain and all is fun and games until your actually in a battle, after that it is all puuuurre skill" she held off her arms showing her muscular arm, "An education can only get you so far" she purred. 

Chase shook his head, "are you hearing yourself? So mathematical calculations and understanding principles of important factors of history doesn't get you any farther through today's lifestyle?" 

Sabine pointed a claw at him, "Hey History I'll agree with, but math..eeehh it a little far fetch these days" 

Chase crossed his arms, "okay then what is two times four?" 


Sabine laughed, "ha easy, it's six" 

Chase placed a hand against his face, "That's Addition genius" 

"Hmph well at least I know how to add" 

Philip stared between the two, "You two sure argue a lot, are you two married?" 

Chase eyes were raised up and blushed, "Me? Married to this moron? Not in a thousand life cycles" 

Sabine gave in a gasp, "I am not a Moron, I am a sincere actress" she played around, "I know a lot more than you do" 

Chase hissed, "you can't even take care of yourself, I mean have you bath recently"

"Oh that is a low blow" she snarled, "Anything you can do I can do better" she mewed, giving her hair a quick sniff. 

"No you can't" 

"Oh yes I can" 

"No you can't"

"Yes I caaan-"

On and on they went as Damien turn around, "Will you two stop it!!" he yelled, "You both sound like children, you're both adults" he turned away as Neal stared behind him. 

"And hear I thought kits were annoying" he swore under his breath and continued on the trail as Sabine raced up. 

She stuck her tongue out at him, "yes I can" she whispered and walked away. Causing Chase to get frustrated. 

As the talking quiet down through the group, Neal came to a sudden stop and felt his paws around the ground, "Hmm" he looked to the left seeing the red crystal mixed in with the purple and blue, looking across the floor and over at a empty space of darkness that can only be shown through their tails. Neal shook his head, "This is as far as I can go I am afraid" he turns  around reaching for the kit. 

"what?" Sabine stepped forward, "but we haven't even made it to a cavern yet, this is just a bunch of tunnels that could lead us anywhere" she mewed, "I don't even have guide markers here how" 

Neal stared at her, "This place doesn't allow me to guide you any further, either I am not wanted here or they are keeping something out that I should not stick my nose in" he picked up the kit and flick his tail, "Look I know you all are good people, but I have a duty to attend to and a Kit to send back safely... I am sure that the spirits will light your path to what you are looking for"

Chloe stepped forwards, "well thank you very much for your help so far, I do hope we can meet again" 

Neal nodded, "as do I, But I must ask before I go...who exactly are you looking for?" he asked them as they all shared a glance at each other. 


Chase spoke first, "Truss Ashford" he mewed, "a Class Guard of New age and a very close friend of ours" 

Neal eyes gave a short widen appearance as he understood, "I see.... Interesting" he picks up the kit with his mouth, "then with interpretation I know the spirits have a place for him, for I have not seen his spirit yet" he mewed, "farewell New age cats"

Sabine gave in a depressing stare, "You know that guy creeps me out a bit" she mewed and starts digging through her bag, pulling out a marker and a knife. 

Chase looked over, "what are you" she cuts the tip of her finger and Chase lashes back, "have you gone mad?!" 

"Chill Braniac!" she hissed and placed it against the tip of the marker as it sucked it up and formed into a sponge, then from the side she started writing on the wall, "I am marking my territory, in case we get lost" she looks back, "oh what's the matter, scared of a little blood" she teased, writing a few symbols, "okay we pick a trail and head straight ahead as I place these markers in so we have a way back" she mewed. 

Chase gave in a hiss then held his snarl, "That...is actually a good idea, even if they are faded the Lizard can sniff them right back" 


Damien pulled out his sword, "Alright enough talk lets keep going forward with the mission" he mewed, "we're close to hitting the uncharted, after that we need to have our A game on, we don't know what is beyond those caverns" 

They all agreed as they stayed close together, without thinking they chose the middle path where the lizard burrowed its face and took a whiff in the the air to get a scent of Truss from the cave and onward to the unknown. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Only a few minutes had passed since they had parted ways with Neal and Philip, the darkness from the caves have gotten so dark recently that their tails barely reach out a few feet in front of them. 

Chloe started to have shivers as she tried to look in front of the darkness, "this place gives me so many chills" she huffed seeing her own breath in the cold wind. 

"This is a sign we are getting close to the uncharted" Damien noted looking up at the ceiling, "beyond this place I hear that eternal darkness awaits, no glowing crystals, no light given." He looks at the creature who continues to dig, "the only reason my nerves are not shot yet is because that beast isn't so nervous about his surroundings" 

Sabine made another marker against the wall as they progressed, "I cannot believe for the first time in my life I get to see something new than the city" she looks back at Oscar, "what do you think about this adventure so far?" he asked. 

Oscar stayed quiet, "Ehh I'm nervous as hell" he added, "I'm kinda getting a bit of homesick, I never travelled this far and I'm worried about my patients back home. This is beginning to be overwhelming and I'm scared I'm going to get lost" he mewed. 

Chase gave in a nod, "you know even though you miss them, still you'll never know what you'll find here" he turned around walking backwards with a rope hanging onto Gloe, "I mean what if you come up with a new form of medicine from an unknown source only found here, its quite a possibility of rare artifices we could loot on the way" 

Sabine eyes flashed and quickly walked up and leaned against him with a bit of drool, "Did you say...loot?" she placed her hands together, "as in...Treasure-" she rolled her tongue on the word, "Oh the thought of it, gold, crysis...Jewels" she said excitingly as her tail lashed around. 

In an instant she stood on top of the beast and kept her feet from touching any of the spikes, "alright Scallywags, lets make this adventures to days end, we shall find the golden trail to riches" she mimicked as Chase only shook his head down. 

Chloe couldn't help but laugh, "that's the spirit, but lets not forget one of them includes Truss" 

Sabine looked back blinking, "Why of course, what a silly think, Truss first, then Treasure" 

Oscar stepped in, "I would also like that too" everyone looked at him as Sabine jumped off when the beast got irritated. 

She glint at him, "oooOOoo, Oscar I didn't take you for a treasure hunter as well?" she rushed over and leaned against him, "So then whatcha gonna buy if you find anything, oh let me guess a new rare gem piercing on the tip of your ear?" she pointed out. 

Oscar shook his head, "no no nothing like that I have plenty of them as you can see" he mewed and looked up in questioning, "Hmm I would like to upgrade my place into a herbs and farm area, growing plants and working on experimentation to help the people" 

Chase looks back, "Wow I like that idea, I would do something similar and make a lab instead of working in that shack of a place" he looks at Chloe who was giving back a angry glare, "Now dear sis, I didn't mean that it was a bad house, I mean I was just-" Suddenly Damien thrashed his teeth open and lunged for Chase as he pushes him against the wall. 

An arrow zips by with a fire beaming down, "Everyone get down!" he yelled as he pulls out his sword. Sabine reached for her short blades and open out her tail cover to hid her tail light and snuck up towards the area that fired. 

Oscar laid low with Chloe, "you didn't tell me we would get shot at!"  he yelled at her as she looked back to see Chase getting up, scrambling towards the back behind Gloe who started to crackle and roll around. Chase's nose was bleeding and gaining control of the beast was impossible so he fled. 

It gave in a roar and smashed into the rock below him, making the cave ripple and creating a hole as it buried its whole body under, "Gloe no! Come Back!" Chase Yelled, cursing under his breath as he looks across the edge of the area to see the place has become a cavern with a few cast with warm colors, signifying that they are Traditional Cats. 

"Hold your fire!" yelled one of the cats in the back with a yellow tail that created a shadow over its body with claws that seem to have give off the same glimmer.

Damien cautiously raised his sword, "who are you guys!" he yelled, "are you rogues? Bandits?" 

Their was a long pause as one of them was wielding some contraption on its back with a red tail, the other one was a bit smaller but also had a red tail with a similar contraption around its tail. 

"So" It spoke in a harsh and low tone as the yellow eyes looked between the New age cats, "you think a feline in the prime of myself is in the ranks of some low life" he hissed as Damien eye widened to look at the golden eyed cat with cold staring eyes. 

His Focus doubled, "you..." he hissed under his breath as Sabine caught up with her twin short blades at the ready, she looked at him and noticed his face and looked back thinking he isn't someone to underestimate.

The two at his side also focused their guard and aimed the contraption at them, up close it was a heavy set of gears and a wind up of a slingshot like device with an arrow mount that revolved around, The guard holding it was larger than the average with heavy stocky shoulder to hold the device. He has never seen anything like it, a new prototype maybe?

Just as the Guard was about to pull down a lever from its paw, the unfamiliar leader raised his golden glowing tail and signalled him to stop, "at ease, hold your fire" he mewed and looked back, "well this is a surprise" he sniffed the air, "not two....three...four...oh five low life cats in the area and into my territory" he said calmly but gave in a dark tone as Damien started to feel nervous. 

Sabine shook her head, "okay and who the hell are you to say low life" she sassed with her blade tip up, "I am guessing you are guards of the Tradition city? I see your armor wear matches their kind" she smiled, "I like that contraption of yours, looks like a stolen design" she teased. 

Damien looked back, "Sabine, now is not the time to gloat" he hissed at her, keeping an eye on the weapon. 

Sabine kept her grin as the cat only kept his stare at the woman, "Hmm, how cute, and I am guessing Marcus was desperate to find a street rat from the underworld they called a ruins" he counter licking his paws. 

Sabine stopped, "What did you say about my home?" she stood forward with her bladed raised. 

The cat stood forward waving his tail as the other two stood back a bit, the female guard looked at him in surprise "s-sir, is this-" 

"Shut up!" he snarled at them as they flinched, "this mongrel is mine" he sat and stared up at her, "and yes rogue turnover, I know about the rotten home of yours with that infested disease lurking with both kinds mixed together with that gang who would create the plague...disgusting" 

Sabine clenched her teeth in anger, "shut your mouth" her eyes glowed Blue as the unfamiliar cat smiled looking back, "what the hell do you know about me?" 

"Hehehe quite simple" he gave in a cold stare, "you're an outsider, born to be nothing but a useless burden and stealing territory-" 

"Shut up!!" she snarled as she swung her blade. 

"Sabine!" Damien yelled as the feline lashed out his claws and in a flash he swept through her blade and through the side of her cheek like he was phasing through light. 

Everything went silent, the feline went to do a flip and landed easily with three legs and one raised up. Sabine struggled to look down at the cat as the blade suddenly broke in two and a deep gash started to weld out from her cheeks and she flinched holding it in place, moaning. 

"Sabine!" Damine yelled, as he lunched at her and placed his claws against her neck, ready to cut her throat open. He was heavy and larger than her with the special claw sets. 

He snarled, "You do not underestimate me weakling!!" he yelled at her ear, "I am beyond your prime and you are in my territory!" 

For the first time in her life Sabine was scared as she felt the tip begin to drive against her neck like a needle, "Rey!" he yelled throwing his sword at him, Bridget jumped in and spun her tail to lash the flying blade and deflect it.  The other guard with the contraption aimed his arrow shooter at him and readied his trigger. 

"Hey you!" and arrow shot between the two sword fighters as the arrow slammed deep into the large guys armor and jammed his weapon, Chloe jumped in victory as she held up her bow and pulled out another arrow, "Hey big guy, get out of the way!" she fired again and the guard ran back to a corner so he could reach the jamming from his back, but was having a hard time craning his neck to reach for it. Meaning he was stuck with a heavy weight on his shoulders. 

That only left this guard leader as she aimed a arrow at him, "He says stop!" she hissed, baring her teeth. 

But he didn't and continued to move forward slowly.  Beginning to hear her struggle even more than before, Chloe fired her arrow but the moment when the arrow was aimed for his neck, he reached for her blade and lifted it up to be deflected a few angles away, "too easy" he craned his neck and tossed the knife to hold Sabine still as she stood there frozen. 

"You pack of shit" she hissed, "you're more rotten than I am!" she spat at him. 

His anger rose, pulling his claws back for a lung until he felt a rumble from the ground, "what's that?' he twitched his ears looking around as the other two behind them stopped and looked up to see the small gravel fall above them. 

Then the ground started to show glowing blue cracks and a roar took place, Both thee female guards panic, "Sir?!" The ground exploded with a roar engulfed in shadows. 

Everyone's jaw dropped as Rey leaped back, his eyes, widened, "Fall back!" he yelled as the girl stared scared at the horrifying creature in front of her, where the image of a giant shadow and a roar of a cave beast encircled the cavern. 

The bigger Traditional cat with the broken contraption pushed her away and they all ran, leaving only them in front of the beast who walks up from the rubble revealing that it was small and reappeared was Gloe, "Gloe!" Chloe rushed up and gave it a hug, "oh my crystals that was awesome!" she said excitingly. 

Chase walked up, slightly dizzy, "yeah...awesome" he gave in an odd sound while holding a napkin on his nose to hold the bleeding as Oscar rushes in to Sabine. 

Sabine just stood their looking pissed, "Are you alright?" he asked her as he checked around for wounds and looks at her neck which was giving off a light stream of blood. 

She lightly pushed him back and patted him on the shoulder, "I'll be fine" she helped herself up, "Damn...I let my guard down" she brushed her cheeks to wipe the blood off and looked up at Damien, "who the hell was that guy?..." she looked down as one of her short blades cut clean in halt, "I have never seen a blade do that before" 

Damien sheathed his sword, "It is quite odd, that was the Mayor of Tradition city" he hissed, "I find him as one of the most dangerous cats to this underground world, he has killed more New age cats than I have killed rabbits" 

Sabine looked at him, "he...killed new age cats? why" 

Chloe looks over at Chase as she hold his head up and helps him with the nose bleeding, "He's been that way since the drought I heard, but I too find it odd as to what the Mayor was doing here in the first place" she looked down. 

Damien shrugged, "I have no idea, but standing here isn't going to solve anything" he walks up to Chase, "hey you okay? Sorry I pushed you against the wall" 

Chase nodded as he held his head up, "I'd rather...eugh...Take a nose bleed than an arrow to the head thank you" he mewed as Oscar pulled up a piece of cotton from his backpack and took over from Chloe to place it into his nose. 

Sabine walked up to the tossed short blade and picked it up, but paused as she looks to the side and saw an odd contraption, "hey" she purred and picked it up, It looked like a knife but it held an odd tightener, "get a load of this thing, could it be treasure?' 

Damien looked at it and saw the sides embroidered with a Traditional guard cat symbol, "I guess its a tail weapon for the four legged felines, I don't think-" she ignored him and placed it around her tail, flipping it around. 

"Hey not bad, warrior accessories at their best....ow!" she poked herself by accident and gave in a chuckle, "I'm keeping this" she mewed and walked forward. 

Oscar sigh, "o great spirits please let this end sooner" he looks up, "this is starting to become overwhelming" 

Sabine stopped and took a large whiff in the air, "oh we're getting close" she mewed with her single blade close, "I can feel this is almost the end of the journey" 

Damien looked over at the pieces of the broken contraption that was built by them, they were amateur shots but any feline with a good aim could figure out to fire one of these. What would he want with armor build such as that and why of all places did he turn up here, did Neal tell on them and they rushed in to stop us?

Something wasn't right, if Gloe did not come in to save them what would have happen. Would they have killed them? Or turn the other way? If Damine didn't know better he knew he was hiding something. and from the direction they were heading their may lead some clues and answers. 

But for the best to know if Truss is Okay. 
The Lost Guard Part 4
LOL I love Philip I always found him the brave and adventurous Type. Also I want to thank EternalFyre413 for helping out with the whole story, at this time she is helping out with proofreading the document from the beginning. 

Next Part: The Lost Guard Part 5"This is it" Damien looked up at the cave entrance seeing the end zone of the signs with the warning and the mouth cave in the shape of a beast. 
"Wait a minute, I thought this place was a myth" Oscar looked over his head, "Do you have any idea what this place is?" he told them. 
"Beast Skull" Chase said in a low tone as he looks up, shaken by the horrors of the word, "This is where many have passed and said to have disappeared" he shook his head, "But it was a myth that they were gone...but I...don't like the looks of this place regardless" he mewed looking at the lizard who started scratching at the walls to get the scent trapped in the rocks. 
Sabine gave in a few whiffs and her fur rose into contained anger, "something isn't right about this place" she half growled, walking up to the walls and feeling around the edges between the rock and crystals, then looked back on the floor, "Damien even you can smell that right?' she told him. 
Damien nodded, "yeah, this pl


Previous:  The Lost Guard Part 3 Hours have passed as Chloe sat down with her feet propped up against a boulder as Chase walked up with a rope tied around Gloe as he started feeding through a bag. He was carrying large gear, hearing the rattling of glasses and metal, what could be expensive instruments, "I cannot believe you talked me into this Chloe" he growled, "This has got to be the most dumbest and desperate idea I had ever heard come out of your head" he gave in a heave and placed the things down, then he petted the Crystal back lizard as it gave out a crackle and laid flat on its belly. 
Chloe didn't answer as she checked herself and walked out in view to show the Battle hunter gear she wore one time with Truss to find Topaz for the first time, it was a custom grade she had Rinthia make where it was more suited for melee than flexibility. Black and slender with green shorts and a pair of daggers with her bow ready with a arrow, "I have to make sure, Chase, I cant just think I lost him" she mewed and wrappe

Clean lineart n stuff is really a matter of practice (and having a program that is suited towards art) I really like Sai. Krita, a free program is also very comparable to sai. It works wonderfully as well.
