With the date of publication coming closer, I wanted to ask if any of you, my watchers, would be interested in doing a piece of art I would put on the cover of Rin's Adventures. I myself have no artistic talents, but if anyone is interested in helping me make RA more visually appealing, just let me know. Thanks for reading.

After talks with Karbo, I am currently in the process of getting Rin's Adventures published. I just want to take the time now to thank all of my loyal readers for standing by me all this time. You have all been wonderful, and I'm so very grateful for your support.

I'm putting this entry up to ask who would like to own a physical book of Rin's great journey. Each copy comes signed by me and with the exclusive short story Washed Away, which tells the tale of how Terra came to live in the forest and the tragic loss of her sister.

Anyone who would like to own a copy please either post in this journal entry or send me a note. I look forward to hearing from you.
Rin’s Adventures: Epilogue

Rin barely made the trip back up Frost Peak, but seeing Falcon’s suit ahead of her kept her going. Just as her tail felt ready to fall off the massive steel doors loomed before her, opening to welcome her and the others home. “I should go to Doctor Silver,” she said. “Hopefully he can do something for Kiki, and me too.”

“Looks like someone’s waiting for us,” Falcon said, pointing to where Binermas and a crowd of Miratans stood by the medical complex. Five armor suits stood in the back, their weapons held low but tracking the group. “Sir, mission accomplished.”

“I see you lost a soldier,” Binermas said. “But it would seem your mission was successful.”

“Yes Sir,” Rin saluted. “The Primordial is sealed, and we brought back the keys to its prison. I’m sure you’ll be able to learn a lot from studying them. Nashta trusted us to keep them safe.”

“Who is Nashta?”

“A dridder who helped us in sealing the enemy’s prison Sir,” Falcon answered. “I was as shocked as the rest of us when she appeared, but she was as focused on the mission as I was. Once the seal was repaired she left, saying she would be watching.”

“And you simply let her go? You didn’t even sieze  her weapon?” Binermas asked with a frown.

“Based on her capabilities Sir, I didn’t want to risk a second battle with my current forces exhausted and injured. I simply returned a battlefield favor. If I meet her again I will make every effort to acquire her weapons technology.”

“Very well Captain. Cadet Rin, you appear to have performed well on your first group mission, as well as preserving the security of this base. I had my doubts about you, but based on the data Captain Falcon transmitted on his approach you have proven your loyalty to the Miratan Armed Forces. I am issuing you a field promotion to Trooper. Congratulations, you are now an official member of the military.”

“Thank you Sir,” Rin managed to salute. “But does this mean I’ll have to leave Felarya?”

The thought of leaving, potentially before even being allowed to visit Terra, terrified Rin.

“Perhaps in the future, but for now you are more valuable to us here. Your acquisitions of artifacts and your contacts in the surrounding lands have proven a great asset. I am assigning you as the Field Ambassador to Felarya. It will be your duty to acquire data and technology for our forces, as well as make contact with beings who can provide data and other useful abilities to our cause,” Binermas said.

“I accept Sir!” Rin smiled despite the pain. “But for now, permission to report to the doctor and see how interesting a specimen I am.”

“Permission granted,” Binermas allowed a small smile to appear on his face. “Keep up the good work trooper.”

“Yes Sir,” Rin nodded before moving over to where Doctor Silver was waiting for her. “I hope I can provide you with some interesting data.”

“Oh I am sure you will Mr. Rin,” the doctor replied. “Your monitoring device has already transmitted its data to us, and I will go over it soon.”

“I’d also like to ask you for a favor,” Rin said, gesturing to Kiki’s frozen body. “My friend Kiki was taken over by a shard of another being who greatly altered her body and magic. I had to shoot her to protect Falcon and the others, but I KNOW she’s still alive in my ice spell. Please, can you try and find a way to help her?”

“Ah, you present me with yet another challenge Ms. Rin,” the doctor smirked. “Very well, I am willing to take on a second interesting specimen.”

Rin nearly hugged the doctor, but quickly remembered his temper. “Thank you Doctor.”

“Now then, let’s have a look at you. It seems you’ve gotten yourself into quite the altercation. I’ll have to put you out while we run some tests. It shouldn’t take more than a few hours, and when we wake you I hope to have some preliminary results on your iced friend.”

“All right,” Rin nodded. She lay on her back as gently as she could, wincing as her broken ribs protested. As she felt the prick of a needle and her eyes began feeling heavy, her last thought before sleep claimed her was how happy she was to be home.

Rin’s Adventures Chapter 32

“How did you get in here?” Falcon demanded, and to everyone’s surprise was echoed by Eshka.

“I have my ways traitor,” the new dridder smirked.

“It has not been long enough Nashta,” Eshka snarled. “Our god is returning, and you and your false queen will soon be the past.”

“Not if I have anything to say about it!” Nashta leapt into the air towards her fellow dridder. Eshka pulled a sword from her back, and blade and polearm met with a clang. The two began trading blows almost faster than the eyes of the shocked Miratans and naga could follow. Both spun strands of webbing and launched themselves up into the stalactites dotting the ceiling.

“I did NOT see this coming,” Rin said before shooting an ice blast at Kiki, catching the surprised fairy in the side. “But I’ll take what I can get.”

“She doesn’t remember you going for cheap shots little snake,” Kiki shot forward, fireballs erupting from her palms. Rin conjured an ice shield and the two powers collided in a flash of steam.

“You don’t know anything about her!” Rin shouted as her tail carried her forward. She encased her arms in ice and threw a barrage of punches at her corrupted friend. “I’m going to get you out of her!”

Kiki grinned before throwing out a burst of searing heat that melted Rin’s ice gauntlets and sent her crashing into the wall. “You talk like you don’t know what you’re up against. I am a fragment of a god, one whom even your Guardians fear. You are NOTHING compared to me!”

Rin rolled with the impact, using her tail to propel herself back to standing. Using both hands she sent a barrage of icicles at Kiki's wings, but again her ice was melted by a blast of heat. This time however she fired a second volley before the last of the heat had faded. Kiki dodged these, except for one which tore a hole in her left wing. “Looks like you’re not untouchable,” she said.

“And that is the last shot you’ll get!” Kiki snarled. Blood leaking from her hip, she leapt at Rin with her blade already swinging. Rin hastily formed an ice shell on her forearm and blocked, pulling the frozen blade with her and tossing Kiki over her shoulder. The blade erupted in flames and burned Rin’s skin as it came away. “Did the little naga get burned?” A tremendous cracking came from the crystal lake as the solid pane shook under an assault from below. “You’re out of time!”

“Not yet!” Nashta smirked as she drove the blade of her polearm against her counterpart’s sword hard enough to knock her arm away and drive her fist into Eshka’s face, nearly sending her crashing down from their ceiling battle. “Listen all of you, there are several crystals around the perimeter of the crystal lake. Remove them from their pedestals; that will slow the seal’s collapse!”

“You heard the spider, let’s do this,” Falcon ordered, struggling to process the fact that they seemingly had a dridder on THEIR side.

The Miratan armor suits spread out while Rin and Nashta kept up the assault on Kiki and Eshka. Two suit pairs took up firing positions on the lake’s defenders, taking shots whenever Rin and Nashta gave them an opening, but the creatures’ armor took most of the damage easily.

“You’re outnumbered,” Rin said as she slammed her tail into Kiki’s chest, taking the pain of a burn in exchange for knocking her to the ground. Placing a hand on the ground she sent a pulse of ice magic that froze the fairy’s wings and back to the stone. In the three seconds it took for her to heat her way free Rin closed the range and knocker her sword from her hand. She made to throw it to the far side of the crystal lake when the metal suddenly turned white hot and she was forced to drop it.

“Idiot, no one can touch my blade but me,” Kiki said as she threw a stream of fire at Rin, who blocked with a wall of ice. Once the flames stopped she slammed her tail against the melting wall, sending hundreds of shards at the fairy. Kiki blocked, but then was forced to fly over and crash into an armor suit about to remove one of the crystals. One swipe of her blade severed the machine’s left arm, and her next removed its head, sending it crashing to the ground.

“NO!” Rin shouted, racing around the lake toward Kiki, keeping up a constant barrage of icicles against her. “You have to fight it Kiki!”

“Like I keep telling you, your friend is gone,” Kiki smiled, baring her teeth. “All you’re doing is wasting your time.” Another crack split the air as the lake’s seal weakened further. For an instant Rin could see two massive eyes looking straight into her soul. The shock froze her long enough for Kiki to ram her fist into Rin’s stomach. Rin doubled over, only for an uppercut to throw her against the wall. Her ice magic evaporated as she felt a rib break, and Rin’s vision swam for several seconds.

Kiki slowly walked over to Rin, her hand reaching for a holster on her belt. “Oh that’s right, I left my dagger in the belly of your friend. Looks like I’ll have to do this another way.” Raising her hands above her head, she slowly formed a massive ball of black fire. “This should be enough to make a meal of roast naga.” Her smile turned to a scowl as she suddenly dodged to the right, barely avoiding a pair of missiles from Decker’s heavy suit.

“Always watch your back,” Rin smirked as she caught Kiki off guard with a tail slam. “You can’t use your best moves without stopping, so we’ve got the upper hand.”

“Oh please; I’m just toying with you so you can see the birth of your new overlord,” Kiki laughed as the lake cracked again, and puddles of black liquid began seeping from the edges of the lake where it met the rock.

“Got one!” Dren shouted, his armor suit holding up an amber crystal.

“Second one over here,” Hawk reported as he hefted an emerald gemstone.

“NO!” Kiki cried as she launched herself into the air, only to be met by three streams of bullets from the Miratans as well as icicles from Rin. Dodging and weaving, she avoided most of the fire and ashed the rest but was forced back. Several of the smaller cracks in the lake re-sealed themselves, and the ground shook as a scream echoed up through the crystal. “You cannot stop my rise!”

“Dream on!” Rin said as she shot an icicle at a ruby gemstone and sent it rolling along the ground. “You can’t fight all of us at once.”

“Oh yes I can, because now I’m angry,” Kiki said, before moving forward in a near blur. A roundhouse kick send Rin crashing to the ground, while she hurled her sword into the chest of Hawk’s armor suit before he could dodge. Reaching out her hand the blade few back to her, but Rin sent an ice pulse which froze her hand and caused it to bounce off.
As Kiki dove for her blade, Rin spied a puddle of blood leaking from Hawk’s armor suit.

Shock froze her as she processed that one of her friends, one of Falcon’s friends had just died. “You monster!” She shrieked as she threw herself forward. Kiki was just bringing her blade up, but Rin dodged left and only received a deep gash on her side. Her ice clad fist slammed into Kiki’s face, breaking her nose and sending a spray of blood into the air. More blows rained down as Rin pummeled her former friend. “I won’t let you kill any more of my friends!”

As Rin leaned back for another blow Kiki darted forward. Her open palm caught Rin in the throat as her knee slammed into her stomach, driving all breath from her. A haymaker from her fist sent Rin slamming back into the stone wall and breaking another Rib. Sharp pain stabbed into her left side, while coughs wracked her body as it struggled to draw a breath.

“I, have had, enough, of you!” Kiki snarled, blood running down her face from her shattered nose. She stomped her foot down on Rin’ left hand, drawing another scream along with the cracks of breaking finger bones. She raked her nails across Rin’s face before wrapping both hands around her throat. “Now I will put an end to your miserable-” her words stopped as a sharp bang echoed across the lake. Kiki looked down at the smoking pistol in Rin’s hand, while her hand pressed against the hole in her chest. A single wet cough left her throat as she collapsed.

“Kiki!” Rin shouted as she caught Kiki’s falling body with one arm. Her left hand refused to move and felt as if it was burning. Kiki, hold on,” she begged. “I’ll think of something.”

“Still you persist,” Kiki smirked, blood leaking from the corners of her mouth. “You may have beaten me, but the seal is nearly broken. I will rise, and you will all suffer for your defiance.” The crimson glow in Kiki’s eyes faded, revealing the clear ruby orbs Rin remembered. A black mist poured from her mouth and vanished through one of the cracks in the seal. Working quickly, Rin encased Kiki’s body in ice, preserving her until she could think of a plan.

From above the battling forms of Eshka and Nashta fell from the ceiling, still locked in their duel. Eshka had lost her shield and was bleeding from her left shoulder, while Nashta had a wicked gash along her left cheek and two of her left side legs were nearly severed. “It’s over,” Nashta said. “Your ally has fallen; you stand alone.”

“I don’t need anyone to defeat you! Eshka shouted as her eyes widened in rage, leaping at her foe. Barely had she left the ground when ten streams of bullets slammed into her from all side, tearing into her armor and breaking off one of her eight legs. Nashta struck her in the chest with her polearm, sending her rolling onto the cracking lake.

“If you’re so loyal to your mistress, then you can be sealed with her forever!” Slamming down on the breaking crystal, Eshka’s body sank into the dark ichor with an echoing scream. “Naga, I require your aid.”

Rin barely heard Nashta’s words as she looked down at Kiki’s ice encased body. A sharp slap to the face snapped her back and she snarled at the dridder above her. “Do that again and I’ll kill you,” she hissed.

“Maybe later, for now I need your help in resetting the seal.” The crystal lake was filled with cracks as the black ichor spread across the floor. “The support crystals have been removed, but we still need to use the crystal key to repair the cracks in the seal.  After that I’ll be more than happy to fight you. If you want to save the rest of your friends you’ll do what I say!”

“Do it Rin,” Falcon said. “She’s proven that at the very least she’s on the side of preventing the Primordial from getting free. That’s an order!” He snapped.

“Yes Sir!” Rin saluted on instinct. Turning to Nashta she frowned. “What do I have to do?”

“Follow me.” The dridder led Rin to the key near the far wall of the chamber. The black crystal pulsed with black energy as it sent energy surging through the expanding cracks below. “Place your hand on the pedestal and focus your energy. Just as the key needed two to free it, it requires two magics to reverse its effects.” Rin did as she was told, and blue and emerald began surrounding the alter. “Repeat after me,” she said. “Magic of the five, heard my call.”

“Magic of the five, hear my call,” Rin repeated, feeling the pull on her ice magic growing each second.

“Bind the evil of Beyond into the Eternal Seas once more.”

“Bind the evil of Beyond into the Eternal Seas once more.” Rin fought to keep standing as her magic was ripped from her, but she could see the cracks in the crystal lake healing with every spoken word.

“By light and dark combined, restore balance to this world.”

“By light and dark combined, restore balance to this world.” The key lit up like a star, and the last thing Rin saw before she passed out was the crystal lake once again a solid unbroken pane.



Rin slowly came back to reality as her aching body realized it was still alive. The first thing she saw was Falcon and the other Miratan armor suits standing over her. Nashta stood off to the side, weapon resting in one hand as she regarded Rin with black eyes. “What happened? How long was I out?”

“Only a few minutes,” Falcon said. “Whatever the two of you did, it worked. The crystal sealed itself and the both of you collapsed. She woke up just before you did.”

“So, what happens now? Are you going to fight us for the key too?” Rin asked.

“No,” Nashta replied. “In my current state I doubt I would win, and you’ve proven you wish the Primordial to remain sealed. That aligns with the wishes of my Queen. For now, I have no quarrel with you. But if our paths happen to cross again, I will do what I must. Until then, I will be watching. Farewell,” the dridder limped back down the tunnel, her steps soon fading away.

“So, I guess we go home now. The ones still alive,” Rin said, glancing over at Hawk’s fallen suit.

“Sometimes not everyone makes it back from a mission Rin,” Dren said. “Let’s collect these keys and get out of here. This place gives me the creeps.”

“Yeah, I agree,” Rin shivered. “I’ll do what I can, but I only have one arm right now.” Even standing up drove daggers into Rin’s midsection as her broken ribs ground together.
“We can take care of it,” Falcon said. “Kiki, is she still alive?”

“I don’t know,” Rin admitted. “My ice should keep her as she was when she was frozen, but her wound…”

“The doctors will do what they can, and with all the magic artifacts we’ve come into possession of lately, I’m sure we’ll find something that can help her.”

Two armor suits hoisted Hawk’s on their shoulders, while four more took hold of Kiki’s ice block. Slowly they retraced their steps towards the exit. The runes from before were faded now, as if their power had been sealed along with the Primordial. The journey to the outside passed in what seemed only a few hours this time, and the mist was just thin enough for the group to walk in a single direction without getting turned around. When they reached the edge, Rin saw the incorporeal spirits from before, and this time one looked at her and smiled before vanishing. “Let’s go home.”
Rin’s Adventures Chapter 31

The ten armor suits and Rin made their way down Frost Peak in single file. A heavy storm had settled over the peak, sending roaring winds and driving snow against them every step of the way. “Visibility down to five meters,” Dren reported. “Sensors are having trouble penetrating the storm. Winds must be picking up metallic dust from the far side of the mountain.”

“I can’t sense any creatures near us,” Rin said. Her ice magic was only growing stronger in the presence of such massive amounts of cold and snow. “Even the worst predators wouldn’t want to be out in this.”

“Then what are you doing out here?” Dellman asked.

“Ask yourself that question; you’re the one who likes hunting creatures aren’t you?” Rin replied.

“Cut the chatter,” Falcon snapped. “Save the quips until we’re out of this mess.”

As the group slowly made their way down the mountain, the wind and snow gradually relented their bombardment. The massive trees of the forest loomed out of the white, and Rin pulled all the cold energy she could within herself before they left Frost Peak behind. Falcon’s suit led the way, the tracker vine held in one hand. He began turning in a slow circle until it began pulsing. “That way,” he said.

“You know, I could carry that for you,” Rin suggested. “Then you’d have both hands free if something attacks us. I only need one hand to use any of my weapons.”

“Good idea,” Falcon replied, handing the vine fragment over to Rin so he could hold his suit’s rifle in both hands. “Take point Rin.”

“Yes Sir!” Rin moved ahead of the armor suits, keeping far enough in front that they didn’t step on her tail. The trees gradually began getting denser, causing less light to shine down through the canopy. The dimming light cast the branches and vegetation in patterns of dark green and black. Animal noise steadily dropped off, until the only sounds were wood crunching under metal feet and Rin’s tail. The bright, healthy vegetation gradually began to wither, leaves growing with spots of black mold and tree trunks dotted with tendrils of rot.

“This must be the border of the Dead Wood Terra told us about,” Falcon said.

“I can feel something in the air,” Rin spoke up. “It’s like the local magic is sick. I can’t explain it to you very well, but I can sense the same rot you can see in the trees. It feels like slime collecting on my skin whenever I reach out to it.” She glanced at Dellman’s suit, knowing the quip he had ready, but to her surprise he kept silent.

The team lapsed into silence as they continued on. Many trees now stood bare of leaves, their bark and branches covered with blotches of the sinister black mold. Tendrils of fog began creeping along the ground. Despite the sun overhead the light continued to fade. “We must be getting close, I can almost taste the dark magic in the air,” Rin said.
The fog thickened with every forward step, until it blotted out the sun completely. Rin struggled to see the ground in front of her tail. “We could get separated in this.”

“Suits, cable hook-up,” Falcon ordered. Each armor suit extended a cable from their waist which linked to the suit in front of them. “Rin, take my cable and secure it around you.”
“Got it,” Rin said, taking the head of the cable and freezing it to her tail with a patch of ice. The tracker was pulsing stronger now. “We’re still on track.”

As she continued forward, Rin suddenly felt as if she had stepped through a spider web, but nothing came away in her hands. Her head felt strange, as if she was turning in a circle standing still. She focused on the vine in her hand and slowly moved forward. “We just hit a spell barrier,” she warned. It’s messing with our sense of direction.”

By now the fog was so thick Rin could not see her own hand in front of her face. No sound was audible, even the movement of her tail. If it wasn’t for the cable frozen to her waist she would have been completely lost. A magical chill went down her spine, as if the eyes of something huge were fixed on her. The fog seemed to move as though invisible creatures were moving through it, swirling and parting almost at random. One moved just to her right and on instinct she fired an icicle, but the ice weapon passed straight through where it had to have been. Charging more of her ice magic into another shot, Rin fired again. This time when the icicle passed through the gap in the fog it illuminated a naga, causing Rin to gasp. The naga was barely visible even with the magical illumination, but it didn’t react to being hit. A great gash covered her chest, showing broken ribs and her insides. Pain so intense Rin could feel it was visible in its eyes for the half second before it moved on.

Rin fired two more magical strikes, and each illuminated another creature; a naga and a dridder. Both displayed horrific injuries, and both ignored her completely. “Ghosts,” she whispered. The passage of the ghosts filled the air with even more dark magic, and she saw the tracker vine begin to wilt. “We have to hurry,” she said as she followed the cable back to Falcon’s suit. “The dark magic is causing the tracker to wither. We don’t have long before it’s useless.”

“All right, but keep your senses peeled Rin. My sensors can’t pick up much beyond five meters, so if you run into anything or anyone give two sharp tugs, three if it’s hostile then drop down and we’ll waste it.”

“Understood,” she saluted and moved forward as quickly as she dared. The ground started to shift from dirt to stone, and fragments of bone and rusted weapons became visible. The feeling of being watched was even stronger now, and Rin had to fight to keep moving forward. Whatever this Primordial was, its magic was strong enough even through its seal to force Rin to draw on the ice in her soul to keep moving forward.

After what seemed like hours, but with the decaying tracker could have been no more than a minute the mouth of a cave loomed ahead, twice as tall as Rin and made of stone as black as a starless sky. Touching the stone nearly made her scream as the flesh of her fingers and palm felt as though they were frozen and burning at the same time. The remains of the tracker turned to dust and fell between her fingers. “This has to be it,” she said, her words sounding ten times as loud as normal to her ears after the silence in the fog. One by one the armor suits came into view.

“So this is what the damnation realm looks like,” Dren said. “I always thought it’d be brighter and with more flames.”

“That could be what’s inside,” Rin replied. “We should keep connected in case there are more redirection spells inside. I’ll do my best to counter them, but my magic may not even work in there.”

“Then keep your pistol ready,” Falcon suggested. “Whatever’s in there might not have seen its like before.”

“Right,” Rin swallowed, and then took her first move inside the cave mouth. Instantly the temperature seemed to plummet, but it didn’t invigorate her. Instead her ice magic seemed to curl up inside her as if it was afraid to touch the surrounding air. Crimson runes flared to life along the cave wall, and each seemed to carry screams which drilled into her head. Pleas for mercy and cruel laughter filled her mind, drowning her own thoughts under their mental weight. Reaching deep within herself, Rin found the serenity she had touched before, and plunged her mind into it. Shutting out all emotion seemed to quiet the screams, and Rin hoped her aura would reach the other suits. The runes flared brighter as if angered by her refusal to bow to their assault.

A rustling up ahead drew Rin’s attention as a wall of vines blocked their path. Cracked bones littered the ground in front of them, and barbed ends emerged as they sensed warm bodies approaching. “We’ll have to deal with these things.” She fired a burst of ice magic at the vines, but it fizzled out before reaching them. A second, stronger burst reached the bards, but only one froze and dropped it to the floor.

“Let me take a shot,” Decker said as his heavy suit moved forward. “Fire in the hole!” A pair of missiles streaked out and sent a wave of stone shards and pulped organic matter down the cave. Rin shielded her eyes, and when she opened them saw that the vines were gone. Black ichor leaked down the soot streaked walls from openings in the stone. “Vines against HE missiles equals no contest.”

“Let’s keep moving,” Rin said, her voice devoid of any emotion. The walls of the cave now seemed to be vibrating, as if the vines had triggered something else, but nothing came out to attack them.

After what seemed like days to Rin, the tunnel opened up ahead. A truly massive chamber spread out before them, the air split by the cracking of a crystal lake in the middle. The force of the presence she had been feeling increased by an order of magnitude as Rin moved forward, driving her to her hands. It took ten beats of her heart to get back up, struggling as if against a strong wind.

“I wondered if you’d manage to find your way here,” a voice called down from above, and Rin’s emotionless state cracked as she saw the being that had once been Kiki descend. Her armor was covered in black crystal growths, and she carried a corroded blade in one hand. Veins in her face and arms spread like black vines across her skin, illuminated by the dark crimson glow of her eyes. “The other naga must have survived long enough to tell you the location of this place. The fact that you penetrated the Fog of The Lost is a surprise, but no matter. It will be good to have witnesses to my rebirth into this world.”

“You won’t be doing anything like that,” Rin said, drawing the ice of her soul back into its dormant state. “I’m going to free Kiki from your control, and your prison will remain just that!”

“Always the optimist,” Kiki sneered. “Predictable and futile as any action would be at this stage. My prison is failing as we speak, and my powers return. If you surrender and beg, I may allow you to be my slaves.”

“Not gonna happen!” Falcon said as he fired a barrage from him rifle. Kiki raised her hand and the bullets were reduced to ash before they could get close.

“Pathetic,” Kiki smirked as she sent a ball of black flame which knocked Falcon’s suit to the ground. “I could kill all of you right now, but that would be no fun. I have been locked away for so long, and I could use some sport when I break free.”

“And it would be a shame to not let your fear build when you see the face of a god,” a second voice chuckled as an armored dridder emerged from the shadows. “How kind of you to get here just behind me, though I wish I’d met you in the fog.”

“YOU!” Rin shouted as Eshka came into view. “I’d hoped we’d seen the last of you. How’s the hip, still a big frostbitten,” she smirked.

“You’ll pay for that,” the dridder scowled. “I intend to make you watch as I drain every drop of blood from your pathetic little body. I promise you I will enjoy every scream you make.”

“Not today,” Dren said as he fired, his rounds slamming into Eshka’s midsection. Her armor took the blows but cracked under the force.

“Nice try,” Eshka spat a stream of acid which melted the barrel of Dren’s rifle. “My strength has doubled since our last meeting, and this time your fire friend is on my side.”

“Let’s see which melts first, the metal of your allies or your resolve when you hear their screams,” Kiki grinned, the black veins in her face expanding as her teeth showed.

“Not just yet,” a low voice called from the cave tunnel. “A play cannot begin until all the players are assembled.” Clicking forward on armored legs, a second armored dridder came forward. Her eyes glowed a familiar deep green, as did the blade of her polearm. “I didn’t expect to see you lot in this place, but it is a welcome surprise. Now, the end can begin.”
