Aurora's Story



Part 1





Introduction
My name is Aurora…I’m a 49 year old Naga living in the mysterious world of Felarya. My family came here from some other dimension to escape from being hunted down. Well apparently it didn’t really work…They were soon killed off by a large group of humans as soon as they arrived. I was only a few months old when that happened…I don’t even know how I escaped the fate my parents went through…but that’s in the past now…I guess…I’m currently living along the mountain side, west to a human city called they called “Negan City.”

Today was a bright day…well…I assume it was…its sorta hard to tell when someone lives a mile underground…I was so exhausted from yesterday…I was in my burrow and I manage to over hear these two humans talking from above me...being the nosey little Naga I am…I snuck out of my burrow and hid behind a large boulder to listen in on there conversation…I’m glad I did that…apparently those two humans were bounty hunters...One of them had a large spear and a rifle on his back and the other seemed to be a mage…
The Day Before

I listened in on the two humans conversation. The man with the spear spoke first.

“There is a Naga in this area…I know it…this Naga must be the cause of all those mysterious disappearances of anyone who passes through this area…”

I shook within my scales…the humans are catching on to me… I shook my head to snap back into my senses and continued to listen. The mage started speaking.

“Are you sure there is a Naga living in this area…it could just be that Naga Crisis that lives north of here she has been causing our people a lot of trouble for quite a while.”

There was that name again. Recently I've been hearing that Crisis name allot for the last couple of years. From what I heard of her, she is a Naga who the humans are very afraid of…they tried to get rid of her countless of times but…they failed and I’m guessing the humans who encounter her are eaten…

“No…it couldn’t be her…I’m sure it is another Naga…”

This is bad...very very bad...I felt like moving but I didnt move...because the continued to talk...

“Ok…if you say so…well…let’s go report your findings to the military of Nagan City so they can hunt down this Naga…”

I felt a shiver run down my spine. I didn’t expect the humans to even find my location…I couldn’t let these two humans make it back to the city…if they did…I’m pretty much a dead girl…I snuck back around the boulder and made my way to the narrow path between the Ascarlin Mountains and the river that surround Negan City, trying to get there before they did. I dug a hole deep enough so I cannot be seen yet I could see my surroundings. I waited there till the two hunters were within my view. I thought to myself that I couldn’t let even one get away…the entrance to the city isn’t very far from here…so I only had one shot at this. I remain still till the humans were right in front of me…I planned on lashing forward, grabbing both of them at once. Just when I was about to lash forward…the spearman saw me. Jumped back and pulled out his rifle and his friend slid to the side.

“See I told you…” I heard the spearmen say...

I quickly pulled myself back. Like always I always forget to come up with a plan B and I found myself backed against a tree....I looked around...trying to find a area to escape...

“This one is smaller than the others!” the mage said out...I wimpered a little seeing that I didnt have many choices...

“We can take her down easily!” The spearmen called out...

The spearman aimed his rifle at me and I could see that he was going to shoot me in the head. Just as he fired, I threw myself to the side towards the mage. I didn’t give him any time to react as I quickly coiled my tail around him. I then started to constrict him with my tail. The spearman aimed his rifle at me again but I lashed my arm at him and grabbed him. I squeezed him with my hand till he dropped both of his weapons and I gave a sigh of relief. I released my coils around the mage…unfortunately I squeezed him too tight and suffocated him. I took the spearman back to my den…he stated begging me to let him go but I wasn’t about to do that…I mean…not after him actually seeing me…I still didn’t really know what to do with him…I was full from my previous…um…meal and I didn’t have any room left for him… the first think that came through my mind was to burry him so deep that nothing could get out…but I then said to myself that doing that would be mean…but I wasn’t really in the position to be nice so I decided that it was the best thing…He started begging me some more as I dug with my free hand. When it was deep enough I put him in and then covered it up…I know it was mean but come on…I was in a stressful situation you know…

Today I checked if he was still there…well…he was…but he wasn’t moving…so I left him there…its not like I wanna touch the rotting dead body of some guy that tried to kill me…I slithered out of my burrow…it was a sunny day liked I guess…the warm sun felt good as I stretched…sleeping on nothing but dirt sorta hurts your back after the first couple of years…after doing my stretch I set out to check if anything has fallen into one of my traps that I placed around the area…I feel really hungry today so hopefully a human is in one of them…if not then…yeah…I’ll just have to go hunting on my own…



Part 2




Well…it’s just my luck that there were absolutely nothing in any of my traps…not even a little human…I really think the humans are catching on to where I lay the traps…well…the first thing tomorrow I am going to lay new traps…they wont see it coming hehehe…I even have an idea where to put them…there one path leading to the human’s city…I’ll just put them in that path so travelers would fall into them…what a great idea…I wont go hungry for weeks like the last time…I started looking around my burrow for a berry bush that I ate off of during times like this…hopefully a Direrat didn’t eat them all…those things really get on my nerves…once I was sleeping and like…three of them were crawling all over my tail…ugh…it was so disgusting… I had nightmares about it for a month…anyways…I finally reached the bush…thankfully there were a few berries growing on it…so I picked a few of them and headed back to my den…yes it wasn’t much of a day…quite boring in fact…boy how I wish something interesting would happen around here…well…besides that incident with those two humans…before I entered my burrow…I remembered that giant tree I always see when I’m checking my traps…I always wanted to go there…to see that gigantic tree…but I’m too afraid to go…every so often when I look over there…I would see these two huge dark figures moving around…I could tell that the figures are WAY bigger than I…also the predators out there can gobble me up in one gulp…so I never move out of a one mile radius of my home…I went inside my burrow because I was tired of moving around and there was nothing to do…I guess I’ll just go take a nap then…

That Night
I was dreaming about when I was a little one…I was like…I’d say…about 10 years old or so…I was about the size of a typical human child…I was watching a couple of humans play with a spherical shaped object…I believe they called it a ball or something like that….well I wanted to play…but…I was afraid to go and ask…I mean…many other human children rejected me when I had asked to play with them…I started to slither away when one of the children saw me…she was like…about 12 years old and she ran up to me…she asked me if I wanted to play…I felt so happy…but…unfortunately I felt something on my belly…but…there was nothing on me…well…till I woke up…I got up and looked around…it was dark but…right in front of me was this light…after a few seconds I realized there was a human child on my tail…staring at me…she had a lantern in her hand…she looked to be about 8 years old and she had really light, long brown hair that shifted from brown to white as it reached her back…her eyes were a bloody pinkish color and seemed to if…she was staring right through me…I felt very scared…this child managed to find my home…I couldn’t move for some reason…I guess it was the same with her because she didn’t move either…she just kept on staring at me…a chill ran through my spine…if this child manages to get to the other humans…than…I’ll find myself soon surrounded by a arm of humans…I managed to move my hand a little…but when I did the girls eye widen…she gasped and started running…I absolutely couldn’t let this child get away…my life was at hand…I quickly got up and moved at her…lucky for me that I was a lot quicker than her and caught up easily. She looked back at me…well…that apparently wasn’t very smart because she then tripped over a root that stuck out of the ground and fell flat on her face…I didn’t let her have a chance to get back up and I grabbed her…she started to struggle as I lifted her up…she waved her arms and kicked at me…I didn’t really think…like my mind when blank…I found my self placing her in my mouth…only her legs were sticking out of my mouth as she continued to struggle to get free…I swallowed with a big gulp and I felt her body partially down my neck…humans are really large meals for me and I tends to take my 5 to 6 swallows just to get them halfway down my neck…I felt her squirming around in my neck…I swallowed again and her legs were now partially down my throat…but she continued to be more persistent and started scratching at my throat…it really hurt…but…I just continued to swallow…by now her entire body was in my throat…even for a small child it takes me this long to push down my meal…I began to feel sorry for the girl…I mean…such a tragic way to end a child’s life…I couldn’t do this to her…even I she did find my home and could tell the other humans about me…I started to push her up my neck…I guess the snake half of me allows me to both swallow large meals and regurgitate them…just in case I need to escape a predator…I mean…who wants to be running for there lives on a full stomach…I pushed her higher up my throat but…she was still struggling…it was really hard for me…and every time she move…it caused her to slide even more down my throat…I felt her legs back into my mouth after 5 minutes of agonizing regurgitation…yet even this…she continued to struggle…I’m setting you free…cant you at least take that for grated…sheesh…when her entire body entered my mouth I spat her out onto the dirt…she looked dazed and staggered to her feet…she looked at me…her eyes were so full of fear…she ran away towards the exit of my burrow without hesitation…I couldn’t help to think that I made the worst mistake of my life…I mean…its now a sure in that the humans are going to find and…*gulp*…kill me…I just new that my tendency to be nicer to human children would lead to my down fall…*sigh*…well I guess I can only wait for my fate…





Part 3






Well…I didn’t get any sleep that night…I was so worried about that girl telling the other humans about me that I spent the rest of the night building traps around my den…it was the only thing I could do…I cant leave my home because to the south is the…horrible Dridders Forest…they can gobble me up in one gulp…I can go to the north because I’ll most likely run into the humans…I am blocked off to the west by the Ascarlin Mountains…so…I’m pretty much screwed…I guess these traps would…give me just a little more time to live…I have never been so scared in my life…I mean…the last time the humans tried to hunt me down was when I was 12…and I barely escaped…but now I’m pretty much a doomed Naga…I wonder what they’ll do with my body…maybe like make shoes or some other stupid human things with my snake half…and I bet all those perverts would have fun with my human um…parts…well I’m done laying traps for now…I guess I’ll just…count the seconds left I have to live…

Morning
I couldn’t sleep a blink…I kept on hearing these sounds…I was so afraid that the humans were right outside that I jumped up a few times…but I guess I was just hearing things…well…I could see the sun in the distance but…I was confused…I mean…it has been like…I’d say…8 hours sense that girl found me…the humans should have found me by now…what is taking them…hmpt…funny…I actually sound like I want them to hurry…well…laying here one mile from the surface…worrying that a bunch of humans are going to kill you sort of does mess with ones mind…I suddenly heard a awkward sound…it sounded to me that some dirt have fallen through into my den…I realized that something must have broken into my den…I immediately assumed it was the humans and quickly got up…I didn’t want to be attacked while laying down…I mean…I should try to escape…but…what's the point…I’ll be shot down by the time I make it halfway out of my den…I heard footsteps from afar…but…I only heard one pair of them…I was confused…the humans sent…one person to try to kill me…only one…I mean…don’t they know that one human wouldn’t do much against a naga…unless…I slithered behind a wall…unless it is a trap…maybe they are just using this human as bait…I cant take any chances…the footsteps grew louder as I trembled within my own scales…I saw a light from around the corner…growing larger and larger as the human was coming closer…I kept as quiet as possible…I don’t really know why…I guess it is just in my instincts…the human came around the corner and I then just realized it…it was the same human girl from earlier…she looked up at me with her pink eyes…I thought to myself…why would this girl come by to my home…again…I mean…I almost ate her…is she like…stupid or something…unless…she is part of the humans plan to kill me…the girl just kept on looking at me…it sort of creeped me out…I mean…a girl with pink eyes and whitish hair staring at you…I know that would just creep anyone out…she took a step forward which frightened me…I slithered back afraid on what she was going to do…she put down the lantern and sat down…which was weird…I didn’t really expect her to do that…it was like…she wasn’t planning anything at all…she then spoke…her voice was really quiet and faint…

“Why…why did you spit me out?…” she asked me…I was confused at this moment…I mean…this girl came back to the person who nearly swallowed her alive…to ask them why they have set them free…this girl is crazy…I mean…If I wasn’t so worried that the humans were outside my home…I’ll just eat her right now…but I don’t like to be rude…so I answered…

”well…I didn’t feel it was right ending a child’s life in such a cruel manner…a child has there entire life ahead of them…” she looked up at me strangely…she spoke again…but what she said was…unsuspecting…

“Well…I don’t have my life ahead of me…so…if you want…you can finish you can finish me…I don’t care…” I was shocked…this girl actually…wants me to eat her?...I knew this had to be some sort of trap…I immediately grabbed her and brought her to my face…

“Who put you up to this…where are the humans!?!” I asked her. She just looked up at me with her pink eyes.

“No one…I’m by myself…alone…well um…with you…” She mumbled back to me…well…I wanted to be sure…I closed my left eye so I can see through my right eye…this allows me to see any heat sources around me…even above ground…well like she said…she was alone…

“So let me get this straight…you…want me to eat you…why?...” I asked. She then goes on explaining on how her father abuses her and how her mother left her alone with him…It really made me sad…this girl did want to live anymore…well…that’s what I think…

“So please…just do it quickly…so I can get it over with…” she told me…I was still a bit confused…so I asked her another question…

“Why were you out all alone…” she looked down at the floor as she explained.

“I was running away from home…but…I fell into you house when I was walking by…and I met you…when you spit me out I ran back home and told my father…but…he didn’t believe me…he hit me a lot of times before he went to bed…and that’s when I wanted to see you again…” she said back to me…I really felt sorry for now…I mean…I know I want to help her but…not like this…







Part 4







The girl looked at me with her pink eyes…it was like she was putting me into trance or something…I noticed how beat up her body was…her arms and legs were covered in bruises and old scars…and I don’t even want to imagine what is under her clothing…

“Are…are you going to do it…” she mumbled to me…I was still shocked that the girl wanted t do this…my arms were shaking…the girl seemed to have caught on to this and knew I didn’t want to eat her…

“If…if you don’t want to…I can…always just go back and tell my father about you again…I mean…he’ll listen to me eventually…” she said to me…my eyes widen…she put me in a situation where I couldn’t dinghy what she wants…I don’t want to eat her…but…if I don’t…then I’m dead…I felt a chill through my scales…I felt as if my arms were turning into wet dirt…this girl just continued to stare at me…and the scary thing is…she kept a strait face ever sense she came back…

“Please Miss…I’m begging you…just do it…I am no longer wanted…and…I feel this is the only thing I am good for…” she said out…I feel really bad about what I am about to do…I…slowly risen her to my mouth…I could barely do that…my arms were shaking like…they were trying to prevent me from doing this…the girl just looked up at me…she smiled and…it was a rather cute smile…

“Thank you miss…” said out… I sighed…after seeing this girl smile…it made it even harder to do this…I…slowly opened my mouth…trying not o think about this girls…painful death…I then thought to myself…this girl seems really familiar for some strange reason…though I just couldn’t put my finger on it…I closed my mouth and the girl looked up at me in confusion…

“wh…what the matter…aren’t you…going to do it…” she asked…I couldn’t do this…I don’t care if she would get the humans to kill me…I just cannot be part of this Childs suicidal act…a tear ran down from my eye…I felt it drop from my cheek onto the floor…the girl saw this and I guess…she knew that I wasn’t going to go through with it…

“I’m sorry…” I said back to her…I quickly grabbed a nearby stone and hit it against the girls head…her body suddenly became limp and felt like a rag doll to me…I immediately though…oh my god I killed her…but I then noticed her chest was moving…she was out cold…I guess my instincts just made me do it…I didn’t plan it…I mean…I was about to let her go…but…then all this happened…I gently placed her on the floor where the dirt was softest…I wanted her to be as conferrable as possible…I placed the lantern she brought with her next to her…to keep her warm…I then slithered out of the room to another chamber I made…sure it was colder than the one that she is in but…I don’t want to accidentally squish the poor child…

4 Hours Later
Well it turns out that this girl was some help after all…it turns out all those traps I placed trapped two humans…one a young lady…I assume was traveling and one a man who I think was a swordsmen…well the lady was small so I was able to fit both of them in my belly…I usually can fit only one normal sized human in there…it was so enjoyable feeling them squirm as they slithered down my throat…I felt satisfied that I finally had something to eat after yesterday...I looked through the stuff they had before I well…you know…I took some of there stuff…the man had some food…water and these strange metal looking things that I guess the humans use to eat…the woman had a few cloths to spare and a medical kit…I took this back to my den and went to the room where I left the girl…she was still laying there…out cold…I used the medical kit to help the swollen bump on the girls head from…well…you know…when I hit her with a stone…I also treated some of the bruising she had all over her body which I assume is from her fathers beatings…she turned over after I put on all the medical stuff…she seemed to be sleeping now…its better than being out cold that’s for sure…I just now noticed that her skin was very pale…not pale as in lacking of blood or something…but…it was her actual skin color…there were some normal skin color spots in random area’s of her body…I counted seven of them…well…that I could see…I’m a shy girl and I know that by how this girl speaks…she’s shy too…so I didn’t want to remove her cloths or anything of that sort…I suspected that this girl isn’t human at all but…she smells like a human…looks like a human…acts…well…sort of like a human and also she lives with humans…which must mean she is a human…I looked back down at her and saw that she was waking up…her eyes slowly opened and she rubbed her head…she looked around for a few seconds…

“Wh…where am I…am I still alive…” she mumbled…she then saw me…she looked sort of upset for a moment but…she then gave a small sigh.

“Why…why did you not do it…I asked you nicely…and I begged you…do you want me to suffer…” she asked me…hearing this I felt really crummy…she makes it sound…so bad…that I spared her…

“look…I just couldn’t go through with it ok…I’m sorry…I just don’t think that your life should just end like that…you deserve another shot at life…” I told her…she looked up at me again…

“No I don’t…I just need to…disappear…no matter what I do to make my father like me…nothing…nothing happens…I just seem to never do anything right…and I even went to the police people at the city…but they didn’t help me…no one wants to help me…not…even you…” she mumbled…now I felt really bad…I mean…this girl seems to be desperate for help…I could just see it in her eyes…no one wants to…and now I don’t want to help her…well…a few hours ago…but now…I want to…

“Look sweetie…I’m going to help…but not by eating you or doing anything that would kill you…you deserve another shot at life…so…” I paused…she looked up at me in confusion…

“What can you do to help me…” she asked…for some reason I couldn’t get what I wanted to say to come out…but I still tried…

“Well…um…you can…um…live…with…me….” I said while stuttering…the girl looked up at me with shock…

“No…I couldn’t do that…I don’t want to get in your way or anything…and not after I threatened you about telling my father…” she cried out…

“No I insist…you deserve a good home…” I said back and smiled…she looked down at the floor…I could see she was putting a lot of thought into it…

“but…wouldn’t my father suspect me being gone…” She mumbled…she did have a point though…I mean…then the humans would go looking for her…and then that’ll put me endangered…

“you’re nice…but I don’t want you to get in trouble because of me…” she added…she sighed and stared at the floor…I could see that she wanted to consider it…though I don’t really know how…I guess it’s a naga thing…she looked up at me and gave a little smile…

“my father works with the worrier people at 4 PM and gets back at 3 AM…also on Thursdays...he’s gone till Saturday…maybe…I could come stay with you during those time…” she mumbled…I smiled…

“do you think you can make it over here every day?…” I asked her…she nodded…

“Ok it’s a deal then…what’s your name little one…my name is Aurora” I added…

“m…my name is Selikey…it’s a funny name I know…” she said back…






Part 5







Its been 5 days sense I met with Seliky…and I quite enjoyed her visits…she is such a interesting little girl…like she told me she had something called…Albinism or something like that…I guess that’s why she has pink eyes and whitish hair…she is so cute when she smiles…her eyes light up like the night sky…well…it would if the sky was red or something…when she comes to visit I would show her around…showed her that underground hot spring I found 3 years ago…we took a swim in it and she seemed to enjoy it…she splashed around and got us all wet…I’m glad the water was only up to my breasts…I never was a good swimmer…I dropped like a stone when I am in water…and I don’t seem to know why…I though snakes were good swimmers…but I guess I am an exception…Seliky loves to eat the berries that I pick…well it is the only thing I can feed her…I mean…how am I going to make here swallow a human probably twice her size…I noticed that she looks really uncomfortable when I…um…devour my meals…she always has this blank stare when she watched me…once she ran off when I was halfway swallowing this Female traveler…when I finished I went looking for her…she wasn’t too far…she was behind a bush and looked as she threw up several times…I did feel bad and apologies…but she just said that it was ok…every time I had a meal I would gather some of the stuff they had and showed them to Seliky…she took some of the stuff that they had like shirts and other weird things…well what she is wearing now is way much better than what she was wearing when I first met her…she was in these old rags…It’s Thursday…so that means Seliky is going to come and stay with me…I'm so excited…I guess after being alone for 49 years…it makes even a little girl seem like good company…

Friday 9:00 AM
I had jut woken up…Seliky was sleeping on my breasts…well…she says that…that is the softest part of me…at first I thought she was some sort of pervert but…she’s 7 and she is a girl…how can she be…I gently picked her up…trying not to waken her…I placed her in a nice soft area of dirt and got up to see if anything was in my traps…I thought it would be better if I eat now then do it in front of little Seliky…when I reached the area where I placed the traps…there was a human init but…he was dead…his body was pale and he had a really shocked impression on his face…there was a small puddle of blood near him…I…suddenly felt…light headed and…very dizzy…I shook it off and look back at the man…I immediately thought to myself…Dridders must have done this…I knew building my home so close to their territory was a bad idea…I manage to avoid being spotted from them countless of times…but now…Seliky is with me…this is going to make things really tough now…I token the liberty of bearying the poor soul…I then realized that Seliky was all alone at my den…if this human died recently then…the Dridder who did this can find Seliky…I slithered back home as quickly as I could…I came back seeing Seliky slowly making her way out of my den…she looked as if she had just woken up…

“Good mourning Aurora…” she said with a big yawn…I grabbed her as quickly and slithered back into my den…I covered the entrance with the boulder I always put over when I enter my home…Seliky looked up at me annoyed…

“What are you doing?...” she cried out…I then heard voices from outside…I pushed the boulder just enough to see outside and took a peek…

“What’s going on Aurora…” She asked…I didn’t answer…I just put my finger over her mouth to shush her…I saw two Dridders moving along right in front of me…they were about a yard from my home…they were both female and had white hair…one of them was about my size but the second one was huge…like…89 feet or something…Seliky gasped and I placed my finger over her mouth again…

“Hey…did you here something…” The smaller one said….

“Hmmm…I did…” the larger one answered…she started smelling the air…

“I smell a…human…” She added…Seliky looked as she was about to scream…I put my hand on her back to try to comfort her…the smaller Dridder started laughing…

“Hmmm…another tasty morsel…you had the last one…this one is going to me mine…kay…”

“Wait wait wait…I smell something else…smells like…a…Naga…” the large one said with a quite disturbing look on her face…I felt a slither down my spine…I saw how Dridders hunted…they were merciless…I over heard some saying that they killed a naga that they ran into…they seem to really hate naga’s which gotten me really afraid of them…

“Smells like this one is…rather small…hehehe…this is going to be fun…” the large one said with a quite evil laugh…I grew very scared…it they find us…they would most certainly kill me…and I don’t even want to imagine on what they are going to do to little Seliky…I held Seliky tightly against me…I saw a tear run down her eye…I knew she was very scared too…she looked down at the floor as she trembled…I drew her close to me and whispered…

“Don’t worry…it is going to be ok…” I looked back at the two Dridders…they were still talking…

“Well since I found that first human in that hole…you can take care of this human and…this inferior Naga…I’m heading back to the tribe…” the large naga said out before she left…I felt a little more relieved…at least this Dridder was my size and…I…might stand a chance against her…maybe I could hold her off so that Seliky can get away…The Dridder was looking around the area…trying to find me and Seliky…
“Come out come out where ever you are…there is no point in hiding…” the Dridder called out as if it was a game

Parts 6=10





Part 6





Seliky was trembling around in my arms…I knew she was trying her hardest not to scream…I could see tears running down from her eyes and she held onto my arm as tight as she could…the Dridder was right in front…one of her 8 legs were only a few feet from my face…I held my breath afraid she’ll look down and see us…
“I know you are here somewhere…just stop hiding and just accept it…” the Dridder called out…I knew it was a matter of time that she’ll find us…she wasn’t going to leave until she did…I felt as I should just crawl out and meet face to face with her…but if I did and I get myself killed…what would…become of little Seliky…I hardly think a Dridder would spare her…if I’m going to risk it all…I just want her to be safe…I mean…she is the only friend…I…had…for a really really long time…I looked at Seliky and she looked back up me…I guess she figured out on what I was going to do and her eyes widen…she then started to shake her head No…
“No Aurora…please don’t go…” She whispered…I placed my finger over her mouth to shush her…
“If something would to happen to me…go to the deepest part of my lair and hide till the cost is clear…” I told her…she continued to deny it but I didn’t want her hurt….I placed her on the floor and pushed her gently with my tail away from me…
“Go Seliky…just do it…” I said to her…she looked at me and gave a sigh…
“You better come out ok…if you don’t…well…you know…” She mumbled…I immediately knew what she was talking about…this made me even more nerves…If I loose…we both die…this is just great…so very great…I saw Seliky heading into my den…when she was out of sight I gave a sigh…this is it…do or die time…I pushed the boulder away and slithered out… The Dridder turned and saw me coming out…she had this evil grin on my face which…frightened me…I still don’t even believe that I’m even out here…I mean…Dridders are great warriors…well…from what I heard…and I’m well…just Aurora…
“So you finally decided to come out filth…” she said to me…I sighed and looked at the floor…
“You must be some sort of idiot to be so close to our territory…who do you think you are…” the Dridder added…I sort of gotten angry on her comment…hey it isn’t my fault that I was abandoned here…it’s not like I could go anywhere else…
“Look…I never bothered you guys…when you’re people pass by…I just leave them alone…I…I don’t want any trouble…” I managed to say…She started laughing and looked at me like I was some sort of idiot…
“Hehehe…you must be slow in that pretty little head of yours…us Dridders hate you kind…and as a Dridder…we must destroy any Naga that we come across…” she said with a darker tone…my eyes widen…I could see her fangs when she talked…I noticed that sometimes a orange liquid would come out…I started shaking…would have I put myself into…I’m going to get myself killed…
“Enough stalling…” she called out and lashed out towards me…I barely had time to react but I managed to grab her arm…I noticed her hands had large sharp nails on them…I knew that they could slice through me with ease…I pushed her away from me but…she just got back up and started laughing…
“looks like we have a fighter here…hehehe…this should be interesting…” she said with a evil laugh…I didn’t know what she was talking about…I’m no fighter…I barely manage to get out of being eaten by a larger predator…she lashed at me again with her claws but I threw myself to the side…I ole her into a nearby boulder and she fell to the floor…the boulder now had cracks on it from the force of impact…it that was me…I would have been dead by now…
“Quit running you little maggot…” She yelled…I could tell she was getting aggravated…I could see it in her eyes…she then spat something at me…it hit me right in the eyes and it really hurt…it was burning and I couldn’t see a thing…then she jumped on me…she pined me to the floor with her legs and looked at me with this creepy smile…I couldn’t move…my arms and her opisthosoma (adomen) was on my tail…my vision finally returned to me and I saw the yellow liquid was dripping from her mouth…
“Hehehe…looks like I got you…now the venom will kill you…nice and slow…” she said with a smirk…I knew she was going to bite me not…if she does I’m so much as a dead Naga…I then thought to myself…I could uses the scales on my arms to help me…when I’m digging I could retract my scales to form these spine like spikes to make it easier to dig…I never thought till now to use them for fighting…I pushed my scales outwards forming the spines…it pricked her hand and she staggered backwards…holding her hands…I immediately turned away…If I see any of blood…she pretty much wins…
“Damn it…what the heck was that…” she cried out in pain…I got up and caught my breath…I’m surprised I haven’t died yet…I mean…I’m not a fighter…well…that’s what I think…I do tend to black out in a middle of a fight…but when I come to my senses…I find the thing I was fighting dead…the Dridder looked at me angrily again…
“Oh now you are in for it…” She yelled…she dashed at me and great speed…I threw myself to the side again…hoping to ole her again…I guess she saw it coming and grabbed me when I did so…
“Oh you’re not trying that cheep move again…” She called out…I couldn’t pull my arm free from her grip…I could feel her nails digging into my skin…it was so very painful that I felt like screaming…but…I held it back…she yanked me towards her and grabbed my neck with her free arm…she then started to lift me above the ground…I could feel her grip getting tighter and tighter…cutting off my ability to breath…she started to laugh as she watch me struggling to breath…
“Pathetic little naga…it’s hopeless…you’re so much as dead…” she smirked…suddenly I feel…really…light…headed…my mind just went…very…very blank…I suddenly…didn’t know…what…what was happening…





part 7





I didn’t know…what was going on…every thing…seems…so…blank…I suddenly found myself sweeping the Dridder’s feet with my tail…I then moved around her and jumped onto her back…it grabbed her arms from behind so she couldn’t fight back…then I coiled my tail around her opisthosoma…I started to constrict as hard as I could…she was struggling but I didn’t care…I just pushed harder and harder…I felt the exoskeleton cracking which urged me to push harder…she started to scream…the sounds of her screams made me want to smile…like music to my ears…she then started to beg…
“Please…agh…stop it please…I…I’ll leave you alone…I promise…agh…just release me…please…” she cried out in pain…I started to laugh…I just kept on squeezing and squeezing…sucking the life out of her…
“Hehehe…now who is the little Maggot…” I said out…the there was this sudden loud cracking sound…I squeezed so hard that it practically shattered her opisthosoma…blood poured all over the place as I dropped the reminisce of her body onto the floor…the only part of her that was intact was her human half…the rest of her was crushed…I felt like smiling as I slithered away…I began to laugh at my victory over this Dridder…it felt so good…like I have never felt before…I turned around to look at the body again…but…then I saw Seliky starring at me from the distance…her eyes were so filled with fear as she looked at me…I suddenly snapped to my senses…
“Wha…what have…d…done…I…I killed her…” I cried out…then I saw the bloody pool right in front of me…I…suddenly felt…woozy…and…ligh…………….

I woke up…it was dark outside and I saw that Seliky was cleaning the big…um…mess that was made…I guess I fainted after…seeing the blood…I always seem to do that…it’s a flaw I’m afraid…I tried my best not to look at the bloody pool...
“Seliky…wha…what happened…everything is so…blurry…” I asked as I still tried to regain my conscience…she didn’t answer and just continued her cleaning…
“Seliky…what’s wrong…"I asked…she continued to ignore me…I started to feel very sad…but…I was still very confused…is she mad at me or something…
“Please Seliky…tell me what is wrong…” I said quietly…
“You…killed her…” She mumbled…
“She was begging for mercy…and you KILLED HER!!!” She yelled…I started to feel very bad about myself…though…I never wanted to kill her…I don’t even know what I was thinking…
“Seliky…I…was protecting you…” I mumbled…
“But you Killed her…you could have let her go…but you crushed her…such…such a painful death…even if she was going to hurt us…” she cried out…I felt very crummy now…I cant believe I did that right in front of a young girls eyes…I wasn’t acting myself…and…now…Seliky may not like me any more…she looked up at me…I could tell she was crying for a long time…
“I thought you were a nice person…you let me free…why didn’t you let her…” she cried out…
“Seliky…I…I wasn’t myself…I’m…I’m sorry…” I said back…she just turned and headed back to my den…I felt really bad about this…what does Seliky think of me now…I mean…I don’t even remember me planning all of that…have…have I done anything like this in my other fights…ugh…I’m so very confused…my head hurts from thinking about this…I thought when manage to save us…we’ll be happy…but…it’s the opposite…I cant help to think I let little Seliky down…I mean…she probably does hate me…looked up at the night sky and gave a sigh…how am I so post to get out of this…

The next day Saturday
I woke up and saw that Seliky was still asleep…she didn’t sleep on my like the last time…she slept on the floor this night…I knew this means she is still angry at me…hopefully…I could make up for it before she leaves back to her fathers house…surely she’ll rather stay with me than go over there…I got up and went to go check on my traps…this time I made sure to cover my den so nothing could get to Seliky…I found only one human in my trap today…a human male who appears to be a merchant…he had a lot of strange humans with him…he begged me not to eat him…but come on…do you think I was really going to…I just plopped him in my mouth and swallowed…I could feel him squirming down my neck and into my waiting belly…but…it wasn’t as satisfying as I hoped…I guess I my mind was so focused on Seliky…*sigh*…I just headed back home with my meal trying to fight out of my stomach…I brought the stuff that the merchant had to give to Seliky…yeah sure it might not make her less hate me but…I always gave her the stuff that my meals had…I cant really break that little…tradition of mine now…*sigh*…I just hope she’ll forgive me soon…because I cant take anymore of this guilt…when I got back to my den…I moved the boulder away and headed into the chamber that little Seliky was in…she was awake but…she seemed to not have moved an inch…
“Um…god…good morning Seliky...how did you sleep…” I asked her…
“Fine…” she said back with no hesitation…
“Um…I…I got you some stuff…you see anything you like…” I mumbled and put all the stuff next to her…
“Thanks…” she mumbled…
“Um…are you…still…mad at me…” I asked…she just looked up at me…
“what do you think…” she asked…I didn’t know what to say…I think she asked me this just to mess with my head…if I say yes…then she might get mad…if I say no…and she is still mad…that’ll make it worse and make me sound stupid…well what's the point…I did a really stupid thing yesterday…seems fitting…
“I'm sorry about yesterday…I was…empty hearted…I didn’t know what I was doing…can you ever forgive me…” I asked…she just looked up at me and gave a deep sigh…
“Do you think I should…” she asked…again with the really difficult questions…I guess she saw it on my face expression that I couldn’t think on anything to say because she started to smile…
“Hehehe…I’m just playing with you…I forgive you…” she said with the cutest smile…





part 8





Well…it looks like I’m all alone again…Seliky headed back to the human city about 2 hours ago…I went with her half the way…then I let her on her own…I mean…if I went any further…I could have been spotted by a human…and that just wouldn’t be good at all…*sigh*…but being alone isn’t what is really on my mind…what happened earlier today and yesterday…still…haunts me…I mean…I didn’t want to do any of that bad stuff…I’m not the merciless type…well…compared to a Dridder I’m not…apparently I am a cold blooded killer now…what caused me to go…all…evil like that…have I done it before…ugh…thinking about it gives me a stomach etch…I decided to do some back ground check on this little…dilemma…I headed over to the area where supposably my people were killed off…remember that Thahn (pronounce T- ha-on) told me about it. When I was a little Naga…I never wanted to go…I mean…if that was really where my family was killed off…why would I want to go…but now…I feel I should go…maybe there is a little background about me…I remember that Thanh told me that the site was a little south of the Ascarlin Mines…I never went there…I always afraid that some sort of giant creature would come out of the mine and eat me…but…that is besides the point…I have to do this…it is best to do it now…I mean…Seliky isn’t going to come back till tomorrow…this’ll allow me to go without putting her in danger…

I waited 30 minutes before heading out…I thought it was going to rain…but I guess I was wrong…I closed my den with the boulder to make sure that nothing would go and steal the stuff that Seliky left behind…I then headed west towards the Ascarlin mines…hoping I wouldn’t run into anything along the way…I mean…I’m sort of still tired from yesterdays…um…event…I wasn’t really in the condition for some big predator to come along…I looked up seeing the clouds forming…great…now it decides to rain…right when I’m too far from my house…what my luck…it started to drizzle as I continued to slither to my destination…I began to think about how Thanh was doing…I haven’t seen her for like…42 years…she took care of me when I was all by myself when I was tiny…she found me when I was a few months old near my families dead bodies…she took me to her Elvin village where she raised my for 7 years…but…the elves found out about me and were going to sentence her to death…but…I did the right thing and ran away…I later found out by overhearing a traveler that they canceled the death sentence…and…well…that was the last time I saw her…

45 minutes passed and it was pouring rain…so much that it I bet it could have flooded 3 of my dens combined…but luckily I remembered to cover it up…I get really grumpy when it rains…I guess it is because I really hate water…hate it hate it hate it…I can go on forever on how much I hate water…I mean…I bet I can go on living without water…that is how much I hate it…well now that I got that out of my system…lets see where I am right now…I looked around a bit…I was in a middle of a big plain…between the Ascarlin Mines and the Diamond mines…it looked as if nothing has grown here for a while…just nothing but brown grass…it sort of creeped me out a bit…I felt as if…something bad happened in this very spot…I felt…so…empty inside…like if something has just…token my soul way…though the dirt…felt so…warm…even when it is pouring cold…cold rain…I knew that this was it…where…where my people were killed off…I just had a feeling in my gut that this was it…I just sat here…without moving…wondering about everything…what happened…how my family was like…everything…it seemed…so faint…so…very far away…I know nothing of what has happened here…in this very spot…I couldn’t help but to start to cry…I knew nothing on my family…nor my people…I must be the most pathetic little Naga here in this so very strange world…I then realize…I’m not here to sob…I came here to find more about myself…I regained my thoughts…trying not to think about what happened here…I started looking around the dirt…trying to find some sort of clue…though…I knew that what ever may have been left behind…may have been destroyed by either some creature or…just by natural causes…but that didn’t stop my search…

Its been 2 hours sense I began searching…though the rain has stopped…the floor was now all muddy…I don’t really mind the mud it is just…it’s really hard to get it off once it has dried…I began to loose hope that there was something here in this lone area…I mean…what are the odds that what ever may have been left behind…would have survived this long…I wish Seliky was here to help me…her company would really help me…in…this time of aloness…I decided to head home now…I given up hope…but…then…something caught my eye…there was this…pointy stone on the floor…I slithered up to it to get a closer look…it didn’t really look like a stone…it looked smooth…I grabbed it and tried to pull it out…but…it was stuck…I pulled harder and…I finally managed to get it out after 3 good minutes of tugging…I fell back when it popped out…I felt dazed for a bit…but…I got up…I looked at what was in the ground…it seemed to be…some sort…of tablet…though…the rain caused this…thick fog to form…so I couldn’t read a single thing on it…I decided to sleep here for the night…let the fog pass and then head home before Seliky comes back…I dug a hole into the ground…deep enough that I could get a decent sleep…I placed the leaves and moss over the entrance so I wouldn’t get spotted by any predators…

I knew that this was going…to be a very long night…a VERY long night…I mean…it was raining again…but…now even harder than before…I just kept on hearing the rain…pounding against the leaves at my little burrow…I just tried to get some sleep…I mean…tomorrow I need to be in my best shape for my trip back to my home…and I did fall asleep…but…yeah…It wasn’t very long…I suddenly find myself waking up in the middle of the night…I heard…this…very creepy sound outside…like…a moving liquid sound…but…also some…sound that sounded like…a women wailing…I was petrified with fear…I didn’t want to see what was out there…but…I did…I peaked through a small opening from the leaves…I…saw a…very…very disturbing site…I…I saw a large…blue…blob like creature with… two orb like objects inside of it…on of the orbs looked metallic but the other one…looked organic…I was so very afraid…I didn’t know what this thing was…or what it’ll do if it finds me…I…remained still…I held my breath trying not to make any sound…the…creature moved so awkwardly…the metallic orb slowly moved toward a point…after that the organic orb would move forward…the blue goo around them just stayed around both of them…I…wanted to scream…but…I swallowed my fear…I moved as far back of my very small burrow as far as I could…I wished this was all a…nightmare…but…it was real…so…very real…I just wish…that thing would leave…and fast…I cant handle this anymore…





Part 9






Ugh…I didn’t get any sleep last night…I mean…who could sleep when there is some terrifying creature outside your home…well…temporary home…that…thing…it just wouldn’t leave…and it even once stood extremely close to my little burrow…it was like almost 2 feet from me…and I am not exaggerating…I’m glad that it is morning now…but…what if that thing is still out there…I cant just…go slithering out there and be like…Hi I’m Aurora…please don’t eat me…lets be friends instead…come on…even I am not that stupid…I took a little peak outside…there was nothing…nothing but a light mist…I decided to make sure nothing was around…I looked through my right eye to make sure there wasn’t any other heat sources from body temperatures…there was nothing…nothing but the faint flicker of the morning Fire Flies…I decided that it was safe and slithered out of my burrow…I was shocked to see that…everything as gone…I mean…literally…the nearby tree’s…the boulders…even parts of the floor itself…gone…nothing…vanished…I started to feel a chill through my scales…I mean…things like that just don’t vanish…I then noticed that the parts of the floor that was missing made…a trail heading to the west…along this trail…the tree’s and other things in such were gone too…I then realized that…what ever that thing was last night…it must have done this…I started to feel even more frightened…this thing…is no ordinary creature…it…consumes everything…in its path…I mean EVERYTHING…I don’t even know why it didn’t find me…I decided to not take any chances and leave immediately…I grabbed the tablet I found yesterday and moved as quickly as I could…I was too scared to even look back…

I finally reached home after like…I’d say…a hour…I’m glad to be home…after the recent events…a nice stay at home seems relaxing…I slithered inside and placed the tablet in the corner of the deepest chamber…I the placed some dirt over it just in case something would have stumble across my lair…like Seliky did…speaking of that…how did Seliky even find my home…I can understand the first time…but…the second…she managed to avoid all my traps…she is either very cunning…or very very VERY lucky…eh…well that’s in the past now…the thing that maters is that we are…some what good friends…I slithered out my den and headed over to my traps to see if there was any…well…meals in them…when I reached them…nothing…though I did find something…well…abnormal…there was this white webby sticky stuff in one of them…I didn’t know what it meant but…I didn’t really put much thought into it…I mean…it’s just another empty trap…as I headed back home…I began to wonder about that strange tablet…when that…what ever that thing was doing what ever it was doing outside my burrow…leaving me terrified…I did well…get a few glimpses at it…it seemed very old with some writing on it…that’s all I saw…I was well…too scared to really pay attention to it for very long…I also began to wonder about Seliky…being at her home in the human city…I wondered what she was doing right now…what she said about her father…being hitting her and yelling at her when he gets back from his work…it worried me…I wanted to do something but I cant…heh…but if I could go over there…oh…he’ll be in such a surprise…hehehe…yeah…he would be able to hurt my little Seliky anymore after I’m done with him…wait a second…did I just…say…my little Seliky…wow…I must be getting all emotional over this little child…when I finally went home…I felt like resting a bit…well of course I wanted to rest…I mean…I didn’t get any sleep last night because of…that…thing…ugh…why am I still thinking about that thing…it’s not going to make the memory disappear…just worse…maybe a little rest would help me get this out of my mind…maybe a nice little dip in the underground hot spring would make me feel better…entered my den and headed over to the chamber with the spring in it…I could feel the nice refreshing water already…heh…I guess my hot spring is the only water I’ll actually ever like…I could see the steam seeping out of the entrance of the chamber...like fog from a cold morning lake…I entered and headed into the water…I laid against the wall of the chamber and closed my eyes…letting the soothing water do it’s work…………..

Huh?…what time is it…heh…I must of dozed off a bit…I got up from the spring and stretched my scales…I cannot remember a time that I felt this relaxed…my body wasn’t aching anymore from that fight…ah…so very nice…I headed outside to see the position of the sun…this is the only way I could tell time…though…it…wasn’t where I expected…it…to be…it was…near the middle…but…a little more to the left…that…means…it’s…oh my…4:00 PM…I over slept…Seliky comes at 3:00 PM…I quickly headed over to the area where we would meet…but…when I got there…she…wasn’t there…ugh…I cant believe this…I cant believe this at all…Seliky must have left already…ugh…she probably thinks I am some sort of…big jerk or something…this isn’t very nice at all…I didn’t mean to not come…but…I cant change the fact…that…Seliky is not here…and after that Dridder incident…she…probably…hates me now…







Part 10






…I feel so sick inside…I cant believe…I didn’t show up to pick up Seliky…this is the worst day ever…Seliky hates me now…and…I don’t even want to know what she is going to do now…I mean…she is willing to…kill herself…what if she is going to do that now…I don’t think I can handle little Seliky being dead…she kept me such good company and…I seemed to have…gotten a bit braver…but…not that she isn’t here…I…I don’t know what I’ll do…I laid in the grass for awhile…the recent chain of even…are exhausting me…and there is no one to comfort me…*sigh*…I hate this…I really hate this…I felt as if my soul had just decided to leave my body…I felt so empty inside now…so…very empty…I should just head home now…I mean…it is not use just being depressed here…it is not going to change the fact that Seliky hates me…I got up and headed back to my home…to get one look back…but…I suddenly felt…woozy…and……………

It was so dark…I couldn’t see a thing…just this voice…calling at me…repeating my name…I recognized the voice…it was Seliky…but…I don’t see her…it’s too dark…she kept on calling my name…my vision slowly came back to me…everything was blurry…like…there was a thick fog in my brain or something…I had a huge headache…and by body felt stiff…I first thought that something must…ugh…attacked me…but after awhile…when my vision finally returned…I saw that Seliky was right on top of me…sitting on my nose…though…she was covered in scars and bruises…and…had…blood all over her arms…
“Are you ok Aurora…you fainted again…” she asked me…I picked her up and slowly lifted myself up…I felt really woozy and dizzy…I it was hard to hold myself upright…
“I’m…I’m fine…but…I…I thought…y…you left Seliky…I…I was late…” I mumbled as I tried to regain my train of though…
“You…late?...hehehe…I thought I was the one who was late…” Seliky said with a laugh…I suddenly felt really…stupid…
“So…we were both late…” I mumbled.
“Yep…hehehe…funny huh…” Seliky laughed…I was still confused about everything…so…Seliky was even more late than I was?...and here I was going all crazy over all of this…
“Why were you late…” she then asked me…
“I sort of…uh…fell asleep…what about you…um…” I mumbled…I then realized that I just asked a very dumb question…I could see that Seliky was very hurt…I mean…she looks as if she could barely stand…
“Well…you try limping over here…oh wait…you cant…I take that back…sorry…” She said with a small laugh…I felt really ashamed now…I mean…here I though she hated me now…yet…she pushed herself…just to get here…
“Um…why are you so hurt…did something attack you…” I asked…she suddenly had this…frown on her face…
“Father…” as soon as I heard her say that…I knew what had happened…I suddenly felt all…angry inside…I just…wanted to hit something as hard as I could…but…I didn’t want to scare little Seliky again…I mean…after that Dridder thing…I don’t want to scare her anymore…so I surprised it…
“Do you want me to carry you Seliky…I mean…you shouldn’t be walking around like that…” I told her…she smiled and nodded…
“That’ll be nice Aurora…you’re so nice…” she said with the cutest little smile…put her on my shoulder and headed home…I’m so happy that Seliky is here…I mean…I practically went mad when I thought she hated me…but she doesn’t…I’m going to try to put this all behind me…just forget this all happened…

We finally arrived at my home…along the way here I told Aurora about the thing I saw last night…the way I described it scared her...she asked me if it hurt me in any way…of course I told her no…she then said “hehehe…well that’s good…because I’ll then have to kick it’s butt then…” which made me really laugh…first she is so small compared to that thing…and second…I don’t even think the creature even has a butt…we laughed the entire way to my home…I didn’t tell her about the tablet though…I didn’t want her to know I knew nothing of myself…or that my family was killed off by…her kind…it’ll just break her little heart…She is such a nice child…a lot better than the other children I met before…all the other children just throw rocks at me and call me a monster…but that is in the past now…I guess…it does still haunt me though…such…painful memories…

parts 11-15






part 11






When we headed inside…I went looking for that medical kit thing that I took from the female human that I…uh…swallowed…Seliky looked pretty bad…I mean…she had all these red...blue and black bruises…she had a black eye…and…ugh…blood all over her…it was really hard for me to look at her…I mean…I faint at the slightest glimpse of blood…but I manage not to faint again…I figured that I fainted earlier was because I saw Seliky with blood on her…but I feel fine now…I had to get rid of the bloody rags she was wearing…I didn’t like holding them…I…sort of just tossed it into a hole and buried it…while Seliky sat in the corner of the chamber…well…nude…I looked through the piles of human cloths that I foraged…Seliky looked up at me and then asked me something…
“Aurora…why don’t you wear any cloths…do you like being naked or something…” She asked…I began to blush…I always have been really embarrass when the humans see me…especially the males…but it doesn’t really matter…they all go to the same place…hehehe…though it did still bother me…
“Well um…I don’t think any cloths would fit me…I mean…human cloths are meant for like…people under 7 feet…I’m like…40 feet tall…or something like that…I really don’t think they make that size…” I answered…Seliky laughed and looked up at me…
“Hehehe…if they did it’ll be like…extra extra extra large…” she said with such a cute smile…I sort of giggled to…even though it wasn’t that funny…I just though it’ll make her feel better…
“I have a question too…why are you so pale and have whitish hair and pink eyes…I mean…you don’t look like the other humans?...” I asked…I had to…I mean…I was curios…
“Hehehe…well that’s because I’m dead…” she said with a…really creepy tone…I felt that chill again and my eyes widen…Seliky then smiled and looked at me…
“I’m just joking with you…I’m albino…remember…” She said with a smile…I gave a sigh of relief…
“What does that mean…is it some sort of alternate human race?…” I asked…
“No silly…its just some weird condition that some of us get…we get all pale like and our eyes are all weird like…they say sense we are so pale…we need sunscreen to protect us from something called…cancer…or something like that…but it’s not like my father gets me some…” Seliky mumbled…I finally found something that would fit Seliky…I handed it to her and she just looked up at me and smiled…
“Thank you Aurora…your such a nice person…” she said to me…I felt this warm feeling building inside of me…something I haven’t felt sense I was with Thanh…
“Your welcome Seliky…you’re a nice person too…” I sad back…Seliky put on all the cloths and smiled…
“Hehehe…so you want to tell me what you did yesterday…” Seliky said with this cute little sparkle in her eye…though…I still didn’t want to tell her about the Tablet I found…and the place where my family was killed of…
“Uh…well…I saw that thing…that scared the live daylights out of me…um…and…that’s it…” I said…Seliky looked at me strangely…she placed her hand on her cheek and looked up at me…
“So…let me get this straight…after I left…for the rest of the day…that thing was here…come on…something must had happen between then…” Seliky said out…wow…this girl really looks into details…
“Well uh…I did a little traveling…for a bit…” I mumbled…that technically was true…she just looked up at me…
“Why?…” she asked…this girl just wouldn’t leave it alone…
“Um…well…I wanted to take a walk…” I answered…
“But you don’t walk…” she said back to me…she was right…I don’t…ugh…this girl is making me feel like an idiot…
“Um…you know what I mean…” I mumbled…
“Then why did you say you did some traveling when you wanted to take a walk?…I mean…um…slither…” she said back…again…she paid very close to details…
“Um…I needed some fresh air…” I said back…
“But what does that have to do with traveling?…” she continued…ugh…she keeps on throwing what ever I say right back at me…
“Um…well…uh…I don’t know…” I mumbled.
“Hehehe…you’re having a hard time…aren’t you…” she laughed… I looked at her and sighed…
“You have no idea…” I mumbled…

It’s 10:00 PM according to that magic box thing that that human I ate earlier had…Seliky called it something weird…I think she said Digital Clock…or something like that…I decided to keep it…if it actually tells time…I don’t have to look at the sun anymore for the time…Seliky was sleeping on my breast again…which still sort of weirds me out…but what ever…I just hope she wakes up before 3:00 AM…the time her father gets back…while she slept…I pulled the tablet out from under the dirt and looked at it…it had some sort of writing on it…at first…it didn’t make any sense to me…but after a few minutes…I seem to understand everything on it…like…I knew this strange writing before…it said…

“This…seems to be our last day to be alive…the humans in this strange world…seem to be closing in on us…it’s only a matter of time till they find us…and destroy us…I…Elenor…am making this tablet…for any other Naga that may be living in this world…to know about us…a people who escaped a world of murder and chaos…only to meet their destruction…”
I started to feel a chill run through my spine from what this tablet said…I mean…this was written right before they all were killed off…and…it explained everything…I didn’t want to read anymore of it…but…I had to…I need to find out about myself…so I’ll know if I pose any threat to little Seliky…I was going to look at it again but…I suddenly heard…a very…familiar sound of…a woman wailing and…moving…liquid…





Part 12





I grew very scared…the thing I saw yesterday…it apparently followed me…Seliky’s eyes flung open…hearing the loud wailing noise from the creature outside…
“Wha…what’s going on…what is that noise…” Seliky mumbled as she rubbed her eyes…I couldn’t answer…I was petrified with fear…I then noticed Seliky had this startled look on her face…I guess she remembered what I told her about the creature…how it sounded like…and she just realized it was at our front door…
“Aurora…I take back what I said about kicking the things butt…I’m scared…” she cried out...I could see tears running down her eyes…seeing this…I managed to regain my train of thought and quickly grabbed Seliky…I slithered as quickly as I could to the exit…only to see through the little peephole next to the boulder…that the creature was right in front of my home…the only thing that kept it from spotting us was the boulder I always place over the entrance of my den…Seliky looked as she wanted to screamed…but I quickly put my finger over her mouth to stop her…the blob creature moved slowly cross the field…closer to the den…as it moved…some of it goo stuck out…forming tentacle like things…grabbing tree’s right out of its roots…the tree’s that were grabbed enter the blob creature…and…I saw the poor tree…start…to disintegrate…I grew frightened…it…ate everything…and dissolved it...like it was nothing…it even ate large boulders…even I cant do that…well…why would I want to…the thing slowly…grew closer and closer…Seliky grabbed onto me tightly…she was shaking just as much I was…I felt like screaming…but I swallowed it down…I couldn’t move though…I felt like…I was frozen solid by this thing…I was so scared that…even my scales stood up…I didn’t know what to do…I don’t know what this thing is…or what it’ll do when it finds us…I managed to turn to Seliky who was trembling…her pink eyes seemed blue from all her tears…she looked up at me with her watery eyes…
“Are...we going to…die…” she whispered…I didn’t know what to say…this is a different situation than with the two Dridders…I could actually fight them…but…this thing…seems unstoppable…but…I had to make a decision…like with the dridders…
“Seliky…I want you to stay here…when you see an opening…I…I want you to run for it…” I told Seliky…Seliky’s eyes widen…
“Aurora…wha…what are you going to do…” she cried back…suddenly the creature roared…it heard Seliky…
“Just do it!...” I yelled…I pushed the boulder aside and rushed outside…the creature wasn’t very big…wasn’t much bigger than I was…but…it…still frightened me…the two orbs that floated inside of it started spinning…the metallic looking one had this faint…red flicker inside of it…it suddenly shot it’s other orb at me still being inside of it’s large gooey surface…I barely had time to react to it…I threw myself to the side just as the goo was right in front of me…that thing’s strike was so quick…it was like a blur when it shot out like me…the orb slowly went back to the center of it’s body and the goo that stretched out centered with it as well…I turned to see the boulder it hit instead of me…part of it was missing…I grew really scared now…I have no chance do I have with this thing…it’s going to kill me…the blob shot out at me again with it’s large gooey surface and I threw myself to the side again…but…it brushed against my tail…I suddenly felt this sharp burning pain on my tail where he hit…it hurt so bad…I…couldn’t stand it…I could feel it even through my thick scales…the pain was so great that I started to scream…I saw the creature moving slowly towards me…I looked back to the entrance of the cave and saw Seliky still standing there…what are you doing…run…get out of here…this is your chance to get away…I could see the expression in her face…she looked so scared…and worried…don’t worry about me…I’m only using myself of a distraction so you can get away…If I die…I want at least Seliky to be ok…but…if I die…what would she do…ugh…I haven’t planned this through very much…damn it…ugh…I cant believe I just cursed…well…its not like anyone is like…reading my thoughts or something…so I guess its fine…I’m done for anyways…the creature was soon only two yard from me…I could here it’s gooey insides turning…the two orbs slowly moving forward…one at a time…inch by inch…I felt helpless now…my tail…is…in so much pain…I don’t think I can slither any more…and even if I could…it’ll hurt…it’s only a matter of time this thing is going to…eat me…I have to think of something…I looked around and saw a tree trunk was within arms reach…I reached out as far as I could and grabbed it…I pulled myself to it and used it to help myself up…it creature still moved closer to me…it made a trail of dead grass…killing all the poor grass that it went over…I pulled up at the tree…using all the strength I had in me…the scales on my arm began to stick out in it’s spine position…as I pulled…I looked back…seeing that the blob creature was only seconds away from striking range…I pulled harder and hard…I heard the roots of the tree began to give away until I ripped the tree right out of the ground…I turned while swinging the tree with all my might at the blob…it slammed into the blobs gooey surface and entered it…I hit the blob’s metallic looking orb…the blob then flew backwards 20 feet and slammed into the ground…I seemed to have found some sort of…weak spot…or…a part of it that actually hurts it…I then realized…the tree that I used was half gone… disintegrating as it entered the blob…it managed to hit the orb before dissolving away completely…I dropped the rest of the poor tree and went to pull another of from it’s roots…just as I was about to…the blob made it’s tentacles again and shot them out at me…I moved to the side trying my best to not let them touch me…it was very difficult for me…my tail was still having that burning pain from earlier…suddenly…one of the tentacles grabbed my tail and made me fall to the floor…for some reason the tentacle didn’t burn me…I guess it is only used to grab things…I threw my tail to the side till part of the tentacle was under it…and the I slammed my tail down on it as hard as I could…the blob retracted it’s now injured tentacle…only to break it off and make more…they all were about to shoot out at me…I was on the floor making it impossible to avoid…I just…laid there…helplessly…as all the tentacles shot out at me…I tightened my eyes…I didn’t want to watch my soon to be painful death…I laid there for a few second…only to realize…it hasn’t grabbed me yet…I opened my eyes seeing Seliky right in front of the blob…waving her arms around…
“Hey you…yes you…look over here…here’s a nice tasty human here for you…come and get me instead…” she yelled out…she was making the creature focus on her…
“Seliky…what are you doing…get out of here while you still can…please…I don’t want you hurt!...or even killed…please…” I cried out…the blob struck at her but she jumped back…barely getting out of the way…the tentacles shot out after her as she ran…I tried to get up to help her…but my tail started to feel even worse than before…the blob started to go after her rather than me now…I have to help her…if that thing manages to grab her…she’s a goner…but…I cant move...I...agh…need to save her…




Part 13





Every time the blob thing attacked Seliky…I jumped…I was really scared that it’ll grab her and eat her all up…I tried to pull myself up…but…I was in so much pain…suddenly…Seliky tripped and fell face flat on the floor…I started to scream her name…the blob slowly caught up to her and she turned herself around…I saw the expression on her face…so…full of ear…I…finally managed to pick myself up…I ignored the intense pain I felt…I dashed over to Seliky…I was right in front of Seliky and was about to grab her…but…the blob shot out her tentacle and grabbed her…It pulled her to its body and I heard her ear shattering scream…I reached out for her and she reached out for me…but the blob just dragged her completely into it’s body…her screams became muffled…I could see her struggling and her cloths began to disintegrate…I yelled her name as tears filled my eyes…she is so much as gone…I can't save her…if I tried I’ll die as well…but…I…suddenly felt…light…headed…everything started to blur out…I then suddenly retracted the scales on my arms to the spiny state…I felt all this anger engulfing me…like…a forest fire…then…I saw myself…like…I was looking down at myself…from above…yet…I was still in my body…I couldn’t move…
“…how dare you…hurt…her…” I yelled…I dashed at the blob and pierced my arm through it’s thick…slimy body and reached for Seliky…I could feel my arm burning…but…not as much as my tail for some reason.…the blob roared and grabbed me …it then lifted me into the air…for some reason…I started to laugh…like…evilly…I just…sliced at the tentacle with my arm till it gave away and landed near where Seliky was floating in it’s body…I pierced my arm again…trying to get her…but the blob again grabbed me again…I grabbed it with my free hand and squeezed it so tightly that it bursted…some of the goo got all over me but I didn’t care…the blob the somehow turned it’s outer layer into a solid…it expanded…pushing me back the mountain…trying to crush me…but…that only make me laugh harder…I tightened my muscles and grabbed the blobs hard layer new bodyish thing…I pushed forward…sliding it forward…I saw that Seliky wasn’t moving…but…I…didn’t seem to…care anymore…I didn’t seem…to have any power over my control…the blob returned to its normal form…causing both my arms to enter it’s body…I saw the organic looking orb near my arm…I guess I though it would be like the other one…a weak spot…because I struck at it as hard as I could…but the thick goo made it hard to get to…I only tapped it…but suddenly…a shockwave flared out of the creatures body and threw me 50 feet into the air…I slammed hard into the wall of the mountain and slid onto the floor…I was dazed…but…I…seemed to regain control of my body…I felt so weak…I looked up and saw that the creature was moving around rapidly…its gooey surface seemed…less circular and full of bumps that moved up and down…it roared as if something had just…hurt it…as it moved around…I dropped my head…I was to weak to move…my body…was in…so much pain…my mind was all blur…but…I managed to see…in the corner of my eye…Seliky…she…was laying in a bush…her cloths were completely gone…her body was so burnt from the blob that…I could see…her…muscle tissue near…her stomach…she…wasn’t moving…her eyes were closed…and she wasn’t breathing…I…realized…she…must be…dead…I reached forward…for…her body and picked her up…she…was heavy to me now…I could barely hold her…I brought her to my chest and started to cry…she’s dead…my only friend…dead…this cant be real…this has to be…some sort of nightmare…I rubbed my finger against her thin hair…I didn’t get a chance to look at her…I heard the creature roar...I looked up and saw it coming towards me…I started to cry even more…tears rolled down my eyes as I held Seliky against me…
“Stay back…get…away from me…don’t you see…you already destroyed the only thing…that I had to live for…the only person…that accepted me…” I yelled at the creature…it just kept on coming at me…it didn’t even hesitate…
“Do your worst…just do it…nothing can be worse than the pain I’m feeling now…” I yelled…a tentacle spawned from it’s body and slowly went up to me…I closed my eyes tightly…wishing it’ll be over quickly…I felt…this…overwhelming sharp…pain in…agh…my stomach…It was so great…it forced me to open my eyes…it Tentacle was..agh…inside me…agh…but it…didn’t pierce though me…I saw this…red liquid come out of me through it’s tentacle and to it’s body…I started to feel woozy…the blobs…metallic orb began to glow…as…everything…grew…blurry…I saw…the tentacle…left my body…and the blob…slowly descended…through the ground…leaving me…here to…die along with…the lifeless body…of my frie………………

I woke up…everything was…so…blurry…but after awhile…my eyesight returned…it was still dark outside…my body felt very weak…it was even hard for me to breath…but…I didn’t care…Seliky was…still laying in my arms…in the same position that I last saw her in…she looked even more pale than normal…I couldn’t help but cry…that monster…killed her…she gave her life…for mine…I feel so sick inside…so very sick…like…my whole world just…disappeared…leaving me in this black void…my family died…I had to leave Thanh…and…now…Seliky is…dead…such…a young…innocent life…just…gone…and I didn’t seem to care before…till…I see her dead before me…this is so horrible…I’m…such a bad person…the only thing now…that seems best fit is…to…give Seliky…a…proper burial…




Part 14




…I just cant…get this empty feeling out…I just…feel so…alone…in this darkness…trapped…no one to pull me out…the one hand that can…is…forgotten…forgotten in the darkness

My body…feels so weak…not from the fight with…that DAMN thing…but…from…Seliky…her death…I…I didn’t even get to say bye…all I have to remember her bye…is…her screaming my name…it kept on repeating…over and over in my head…haunting me…ripping away at me…I cant…take this much pain any longer…and…she has only been dead for…1 hour…and yet…feels like 100 years…her body feels…so…so cold…so stiff…so…motionless…I keep on thinking she is…just going to get up…and…and everything would be back to normal…but…it’s not…she is not coming back…I’ll never be able to see that…cute little smile of hers…ever again…sure I only knew her for a few days…but…that doesn’t matter…those few days…were the best of my life…I finally entered my home…I was still weak…my body was still in pain…though…even in my great pain…I want to give Seliky a…proper burial…she deserves it…she really does…I was going to bury her in a chamber I mad recently and never came up with a use for it…well…it is not going to be Seliky’s little…resting place…I placed little Seliky on the floor as gently as I could and entered the chamber to start digging…my body…started to hurt…so much…like…some one just shot me 500 times…but…even through this…I continued…Seliky’s voice began to start up in my head…taunting me with all the funny things she said…her face kept on popping up…every where I looked…the memories…which were so post to be happy…felt more like a arrow…that just shot though my soul…err…I cant go on life living like this…what is the point of living…when…the all the ones…who cared for me…die…Seliky’s being the worst death…such…a painful…gruesome death…no child should ever go through that suffering…I wonder…what she is doing now…is she looking down at me…from…where ever the souls of the lost go…or is she just happy to be rid of her father…I don’t know…if she is happy where she is…then…that is the only way that I’ll feel…some what conferrable…I finished making the area where Seliky would lay…a small square shape hole…big enough to fit her…small…small body…I looked down at it a bit…the torturous voices appeared in my head again…Seliky…calling my name…over and over again…”Aurora…Aurora…”…I started to cry again…all of this pain…it’s tarring me apart…I turned to get Seliky’s body…but…she wasn’t there…but…that is…that is impossible…she’s…she’s dead…
“Aurora…are you planning on putting me in this hole…” I heard from…below me…I looked down and there she was…looking up at me…smiling…I couldn’t believe my eyes…I immediately grabbed her and squeezed hard against me…
“I can’t believe it…you’re…you’re actually alive…but…I could have sworn you were dead…” I cried out…
“Ow…Aurora…you’re killing me…” she said back with short breaths…I let go of her…looked up at me and smiled…
“You though…I was dead…silly...silly Aurora…” she laughed…I still couldn’t believe all of this…it was like my mind was trying to pay a trick on me…but it wasn’t
“Oh my…I…I still can’t believe this…are you like a ghost or something…no…wait…I picked you up…are you a zombie…” I cried out…
“I don’t think so…I don’t feel like I want to eat someone’s brains…” she said back to me…
“You are alive…” I cried out happily…
“What was you first clue…” she said sarcastically…I picked her up and brought her to my face…
“I thought that goo thing killed you…you…didn’t move…you didn’t breath…I didn’t even hear your heart beat…but…you…you are still here…with me…” said out…
“Well…I’m here…breathing…and…” she paused and placed her hand over her chest… “My heart is beating…so…I’m here…any more things do you want me to do so I can show you I’m alive…” she said back to me…she then started coughing…I could tell she was in a lot of pain…she has huge gaping wounds all over her body…and the on that worried me was…the one on her stomach…I could see her muscle tissue…it looks like it needs to be treated…
“Can you tell me this…did…did we win…” she asked in a very faint voice…
“I think…I think I managed to scare it off…but…” I stopped in the middle of my sentence…
“You think it’ll be back…” she mumbled…
“Don’t worry about it…all that matters to me it that you are alive…and with me…you cant imagine all this pain I have been feeling…I…I was going crazy…I was all talking to myself…” I said back…Seliky gave a small giggle…but…she then started coughing again…she…coughed up blood…it spattered on my face…and I began to feel…woozy…but…I suppressed it…I shook my head…trying to stop myself from fainting…
“Are you ok Aurora…” she mumbled…I took a deep breath and looked back at her…
“I’m fine…let’s get you fixed up…you look horrible…” I said to her…
“hehehe…yeah…you too…” she said back…when she said that…I realized that…my arms were all burnt…I could actually see my muscle tissue also…but not as big as Seliky’s…but it was weird…the scales on my arms seem to still be intact…my tail was also in pretty bad condition…but I didn’t care about my injuries…I was still sort of shocked that Seliky was still here…with me…




Part 15




I rubbed the cream that was in the first aid kit all over Seliky’s arms…her wounds were so bad…I sort of felt sorry for her…it makes the wound feel like it is burning…I could see Seliky was trying to endure the pain…she held her eyes tightly and twitched a bit…I looked down at the huge wound on her stomach…normal medicine wont be able to fix that one…maybe those healing herbs could help…but…that blob thing destroyed the patch that grew in front of my home…
“Aurora…you are so good with medicine…” She said to me with a small smile…I smiled back…I continued to rub the cream on her when she looked down at her stomach…
“Hehehe…I can see inside of me…” she laughed…I knew she was just trying to keep me feeling good…but this was still a very serious situation…if this wound stayed like this…it can get infected…and she’ll die…and after I felt when I thought she was dead before…I cant handle another one…
“Thanks for trying to cheer me up…” I mumbled…I’m really happy that is here with me still…but she doesn’t have to try to make me feel better…
“It’s almost time for me to head back to…my…dad’s house…” she then mumbled…
“You…you cant go back in your condition…the predators would be attracted to you…and even if you do make it back…would your father find it strange that you have these…wounds…” I cried out…
“I’ll managed…after the pain I felt tonight…anything he does to me would be nothing…” she said with a small smile…she then started coughing…I knew she wasn’t in any condition to walk…and I was really weak also…I cant really take her over to her home with my tail like this…
“Seliky…why don’t you stay for tonight…I mean…I know you cannot make that long walk without killing yourself…” I mumbled…she looked up at me and smiled…
“Silly Aurora…if I stay here…father would get angry…also he’ll send people to looks for me…and you cant have that…cant you Aurora…” she said with a strange smile…she had a point there…I gave a sigh and looked over to her…
“I’ll take you…now come…let me get you dressed…” Seliky smiled and looked at my tail…
“Your such a good friends…escorting me even when you have an injured tail…thank you Aurora…” she said to me…I felt like crying…I felt so happy after hearing those…kind words…
“It’s…it’s my pleasure Seliky…” I said…I picked up a cloth and rapped it tightly around Seliky’s stomach to protect it from infection…well…till those herbs grow back…I then grabbed some cloths around Seliky’s size and put it on her…a little baggy…but she didn’t seem to mind…I picked her up…trying to avoid her sore spots and put her on my shoulder…
“Let’s head out…” I told her as I…painfully…slithered out of the cave…

It was a safe journey to the entrance of the city…I did almost fall forward a few times though…but I managed to avoid falling…if I fell…I could have accidentally crush little Seliky…which would be very very bad…I’m like 500 times her size and WAY out of her weight class…not that I’m fat or anything…Seliky said thank you to me and I placed her on the floor…she waved to me as slowly headed into the city…I hoe she is going to be ok…I don’t have a clue what goes on with her when she is in the city…it’s like a barrier or something…keeping me away…preventing me from protecting my friend…but…it cant be helped…I only have been in the city once…when I was very…very small…but that isn’t the point…I just hope Seliky wouldn’t get hurt in there…by her stupid excuse of a father…I turned around and began to head hope…it was still very dark…I had to rely on my left eye to see…my left eye can see in night vision…which is useful when it is dark...or when I’m in my burrow…every so often I would here a bush shake…or leaves rattling…I was so scared that the blob thing was still out here that I moved…a bit quicker…but I did manage to get home…I covered my burrow and went to my sleeping chamber…I uncovered the tablet and looked at it again…for some reason…I didn’t feel like reading it…I mean…my mind was so focused on little Seliky…after seeing her…dead…then come back…made me worried…I was scared that her being my friend is actually putting her in more danger…first was that Dridder…and now that blob thing…if this keeps up…either me…or Seliky…is…going to be killed…I thought…of…just leaving…and let Seliky go…but…I then snapped to my senses…why would I think such a horrible thing…all of these events must be driving me mad…ugh…I need some rest…I need some time to relax…I laid down…trying to avoid hurting myself…I held the tablet above my face and stared at it a bit…this thing has almost everything about my people…maybe if I can find something in here…I could be able to find a way to protect Seliky better…so I wouldn’t have to see her death again…I started to read it again…

“Our people are great fighters…out highly advanced physical easily overwhelms other Nagas…this makes up for our relatively smaller size…also…our people have thick protective scales both on our arms…and tails…this is useful for both combat and digging purposes…the scales on our tail are thick to prevent serious injury…they are so thick that missals cannot harm them…when in a danger dangerous situation…we coil ourselves into a ball…protecting our human unarmored half…”

After reading this…everything made a little sense…I do have some fighting moves that no one thought me…also I’m very strong…I’m able to shatter boulders 5 times my size…and pull large trees out from their roots…and when I get scared…I coiled into armored ball with my tail…but…what did it mean…Relatively smaller size…that go me really confused…but I didn’t put to much though into it…I just looked at the tablet and skimmed ahead…suddenly…I caught something in the corner of my eye…I saw my name being mentioned in the tablet…

parts 16 - 20





Part 16





When I…when saw my name on the Tablet…I felt a chill fall through my back…I started to read the part about me…I realized that the Tablet wasn’t written by only one person…but by the entire family…and the one about me…was…written by…my…sister…

“Well it looks like I have to write in this thing now about my baby sister Aurora…Aurora is a unique little naga…our people are built for physical strength…not much in everything else…our kind do not have a magic aura…which pretty much mean we cannot use any magic what’s so ever…Aurora was the very first one of our kind to be born here in Felarya…actually she was the only one…but that is not the point…Aurora was actually born with a small magical Aura…she is the only one of our kind that may be able to use magic…though…if she was…she’ll only be able to cast really weak spells...I guess that is why our parents called her Aurora…"

I froze after reading this…It was shocking that I even had a sister…but…now that I know…that I’m different from the others and…I’m able to use magic…apparently…I continued to look through the tablet…that was the only thing that it said about me…it never mentioned who my parents were…and my sister failed to mention anything about herself…leaving me still wondering about everything…I sighed and continued skimming the writing on the tablet…near the end…it said something about our kid…that…that was very disturbing…

“Our people are great fighters…our skill combined with our great strength makes our power very high…but…we have…no tolerance for damage…if we get injured...it’ll takes us months to recover…even for minor wounds…and our bodies cant take much punishment…but…due to our travels to many different worlds to escape the pursuing humans…our bodies evolved a special ability…we called it Tsuin Hitogara…when we find ourselves in a life or death situation…we go into…sort of temporary transformation…our bodies strength and endurance increases Ten Fold…this allowed us to survive till now…but…this ability has a defect…our minds seem to be…replaced with this…merciless…gruesome…blank us from our feelings and keeping us from doing what is right…in this state…we can kill our closest friend…and feel no guilt…till our minds return to us…we feel no mercy…nothing…not even love…to warn our…family that someone enters this state…our eyes turn completely yellow…to many…when this happens…something dies soon after…

My eyes widen…according to this…I’m…some sort of…a…bloodthirsty killing machine…this would explain what happened to me in the fight with that Dridder…I must have gone into that…Tsuin Hitogara thing…I don’t know if it is safe for me to be with Seliky anymore…I could hurt…or even kill little Seliky…I don’t want that…I want Seliky to live a long happy life…not one that may be short and full of fear…I put the tablet down and covered it with dirt…I didn’t want to read anymore…full of things…I shouldn’t learn…but…at least I…know more of myself…and…why I go all bezerko crazy when I’m fighting…ugh…I need some rest…I need some rest from this crazy…crazy day…

I woke up…I turned to look at that human clock thing Seliky gave to me…it said it was 8 AM…my body was is no much pain…it hurt even when I moved my arms…my tail felt as if it was going to fall off and my chest hurt when I took deep breaths…I didn’t want to get up…I knew if I moved…my body would start to hurt…real bad…but suddenly…I started to hear my stomach grumbling…like it was saying to me “Aurora…get off your tail and feed me!!!” hehehe…I must be going crazy if I interpret what my stomach is saying…I decided to get up to see if anything was in my traps…I lifted myself up…trying to endure my aching body…I slowly slithered out of my den and headed north…as I went…I saw the battle field where I fought the blob creature…the I tree’s were gone…the floor was gone…even the boulders were gone…is I moved…I turned and saw where I saw the blob creature disappear into the ground…the grass was all dead…as if all life was drained from that very spot…I began to wonder…how did that blob thing fallow me…I mean…it didn’t see me the first time I saw it…it would have eaten me then and there if it did…I looked down at the floor…I sighed and thought about if for a second…it then noticed…part of the skin on my tail was peeling of…after seeing this…I knew how it fallowed me…I’M SHEDDING…and that thing must have smelled my sent from the shedded skin from my tail and fallowed me…this is great…now I know that this thing is going to come back…well…at least I think I know it’s weak spot…and know to avoid touching that organic looking orb…I continued to slither on to my traps…wondering about that blob thing…I put my hand on my stomach…but not because I was hungry…but because of what that blob did to me…I put it’s tactical in me…and suck something out of me…no I just have this red mark on my belly…but it didn’t hurt…I wonder why it did that…instead of eating me and Seliky…I was helpless and at it’s mercy…why did it spare me…unless it is planning to attack again…I’m so very confused now…just what the heck is this…monster…





Part 17





I had to stop thinking about this goo monster…today is my day to relax…I need to keep my mind as straight as possible…after all the things that has happen these past couple of days…I’m actually surprised I haven’t gone mad from all of this…I mean…first I was practically scared to death that the humans were going to kill me…then Seliky put me in a situation where she wants me to eat her…then that Dridder attacked us…then I found the tablet plus came in contact with…that thing…then I went crazy when I though Seliky hated me now…and then that thing attacked us…and then I went crazy when I though Seliky died…ugh…so much for me to handle…my life is becoming too hectic…ugh…I really really need some rest…I finally reached where my traps were laid…and I was surprise…there were three humans in my traps…two in the same trap…yes…this is perfect for the hard two weeks I have been through…but there was still the trouble of…well…eating them…I’m still sort of weak from…that thing…I peered into the hole and they all looked up at me…terrified…two were male and one was a female…suddenly one of the males pulled out a rifle …I pulled my head back right before he fired…agh…how can I be so stupid…I never use to peer into the holes before…I knew it was dangerous…I guess I am going crazy…well…how am I going to get him out without him shooting me up…hmmm…I got it…I reached my hand down quickly and grabbed the man before he had the chance…I made sure both his hands weren’t free as I flicked the rifle out of his hands…
“Nice try…” I said to him…his eyes widen as he looked at me...he started to struggle wildly like a trapped animal…but he didn’t have any chance breaking from my grip…I don’t want the little guy to be worn out inside me…it isn’t as much fun when my pray isn’t struggling inside me…even though it pains to me to think they are suffering…but…I have to eat too…I opened my mouth and stuffed him in without giving him a say…he started kicking at my gums…but I just slurped him deeper in my mouth and then swallowed hard…I could feel my neck stretching out to fit him in my throat…he squirmed as I gulped him down…though this did take me awhile…he kept on fighting making his decent slower than normal…I just swallowed again…pushing him further down my throat…by now…I’d say his head would be right where my neck meet my body…a bit of his legs were still in my mouth…kicking away…but with another gulp…no more…I guess he decided not to fight anymore because the rest of his little…um…trip…went faster…I could feel him plop into my stomach…well…that’s one…2 more to go…well…it may be that I can only have one more meal…I looked in the other hole to see the other two humans…well the woman looks as if she is unconscious…she wasn’t moving and was laying on the floor…I guess her falling in my trap knocked her out…well…I guess I’ll spare her sense she hasn’t seen me yet…but the male…he’s not so lucky…I reached out and grabbed him…then I felt this pain in my fingers…I pulled out my hand quickly…I had a cut on my finger…and…I was…bleeding…I looked away…to avoid…you know…I looked though the hole and saw the man had a sword…
“You hurt me…” I mumbled…he didn’t say anything…just stood his ground ok…lets disarm this little one…I reached in again but this time…I grabbed some dirt and flicked it at him…he staggered and I grabbed him before he could use his sword…I yanked his sword away from him and tossed it aside…
“You were a feisty one…but I got you…” I said to him…I then…heard him muttering to himself…
“What’s that you say?...” I said to him…
“You are all filth…you nagas…you all make me sick…” he yelled…I went silent…he looked at me…he then noticed that I was injured…
“…hmpt…serves you right…I bet you ate hundreds of humans…” I looked down at the floor shamefully…but I regained my senses and looked at him…
“Do you normally treat people who are bigger…and stronger than you like this…it is quite rude you know…” I mumbled…
“Go to hell…” he yelled back at me…I tightened my other fist…I could feel my scales…slowly retracting from my arm…
“…you should close that mouth of yours…if you know what is good for you…” I mumbled…he laughed…
“Hmpt…what…you can’t take an insult…filthy...filthy Naga!...” he continued…I swear…if this man with in my other hand…he’ll be in tiny bits…that's how tight my fist is…
“what…is the little Naga angry…go ahead…kill me…I don’t care…my soul will feel better seeing the military shoot you down…” he yelled…anger suddenly engulfed me…in a blind rage…I slammed the man as hard as I could into the stone boulder near me…so hard that the boulder shattered into hundreds of pieces…but that wasn’t the end of it…I the slammed him into the dirt…pushing him deep into the ground…so deep that it took up my entire arm…I pulled my arm out of the new deep hole in the ground and found the man dead…with a missing arm and body nearly crushed…I tossed his worthless body aside and the punched a nearby tree…so hard that the tree fell over…
“Damn him…” I yelled…I then regained my senses…I…I didn’t want to do that…I…killed the guy…and…I…suddenly feel so…I feel really woozy and light headed…I…I guess I went into Tsuin Hitogara…but…I wasn’t in a life or death situation…did…did my anger trigger it…oh…this is bad…what if I got angry at Seliky…for any reason at all…would…would I do the same thing to her that I did to this human…this is so bad…agh…this was so post to be my day to relax…but no…this stupid human ruined it…ugh…I got to go lay down…I’m fine with one taste human in my belly…which in fact…he was still fighting inside of me…I could see my slightly larger belly bumping around…but…what am I going to do with that woman who’s unconscious…well…I’ll be nice…I’ll leave her in front of the human city…so they can find her…she didn’t do anything wrong…





Part 18





After I put the women in front of the city…I then slithered back to my home…though…the extra weight in my belly did…well…slow me down a bit…I had to stop and take a short 5 second breather every so often…he was still struggling in there…but it’s not like he’s getting out…I have to eat too you know…so I ignored him…I began to daydream about my family…and about my sister…I don’t even know how they were like…I was too young to remember anything about them…I bet they were very nice people…though…I’ll never know if that is true…I probably shouldn’t think of them too much…I mean…I know a person is so post to remember their family…but…if I though of them too much…I’ll begin to miss them…and cry…I have to remain strong in this…I started to think about that magical Aura my sister mentioned…I never knew I was able to use magic…I guess this would explain my eyes…in the tablet…nothing mentioned about my kind having two colored eyes that see in Night vision and infer red vision…I wonder what I can do with this aura…she said that my Aura was weak…and I can only cast weak spells…well…what kind of weak spells…I should look into this…maybe even try to figure out how to use this magical aura of mine…but for now…it’s time to rest…I reached the entrance of my burrow and slithered inside…I went in my main chamber and laid down…my body begin to be in pain again…I could feel the burning sensation on my arms and my tail…it hurt so much…that stupid blob thing had to go too far with this…ugh…why am I thinking of that thing again…it just wont get out of my head…I turned myself onto my belly and put my face against the cool dirt…for some reason this relaxes me…but not as much as my little hot spring of course…I closed my eyes and took a deep breath…I pushed my aching arms into the cool dirt…burying them under the nice cold soil…I don’t really know why though…I guess it just feels nice…my body felt so relaxed now…all the pain in my body just seem to…have just…gone away…feels so nice to relax after such a hard week…so very nice…so nice that I fee like taking a nap…

…I woke up…I turned and looked at that clock thing…it said 2:00 PM…hehehe…I slept for four hours…it felt nice to get a decent sleep again…I got up and stretched my arms…I wasn’t in as much pain now for some reason…I guess the cold dirt really helped my wounds…ah…feels so nice…I also didn’t feel the little human kicking around in my belly now…I guess he’s gone now…hehehe…I don’t feel hungry any more…feels nice to get a nice little meal after all of these events lately…two hours till Seliky comes…what am I going to do for two hours…hmmm…I started to think…a have this real bad habit to play with the scales on my arms when I think…I lost count on how many scales I accidentally pulled out…I actually have a chamber full of them…hehehe…I don’t even know why I even need that chamber…maybe I’ll show Seliky it when she gets here…hmmm…what to do…things here are really boring without Seliky…I mean…she makes everything fun with her happy attitude and such…always with that cute little giggle of hers…I love the little stories she tells about the humans…she told me that when she is at her home…she looks out here window and just watch the people go by….studying them…which is actually sort of creepy…but all well…I’m just glad she isn’t studying me…wait…maybe she is…what if she is taking little notes on how I act…nah…she’s too cool for that…she also told me how she would sneak out of the house to go to a place called…a library…she says there are a lot of books in there and she would just sit there and read them…which sounds really boring…but I guess she has nothing better to do…maybe that is why she is so cunning…I mean…when she asks questions…she asks it in a way where I HAVE to answer…or asks a question that contradicts what I say before…she looks the details…she also had to be very smart to avoid all those traps I lay…I mean…she managed to find my lair the first day without falling into my traps…and then go into my lair again…she must be a very smart girl…and a very energetic one too…I mean…she is always so happy…it’s hard to believe she actually…wanted to commit suicide…ugh…I probably shouldn’t have thought of that…now…now I feel so depressed inside…this girl have must suffered a lot to actually…want me to eat her…err…that father of hers makes me so angry…I just…want my to be in my path when I’m in the Tsuin Hitogara state of mind…hehehe…the last thing he’ll ever see is my fist planting down on him…hehehe…I don’t think I ever had violent thoughts like this before…I guess the thought of Seliky being beaten by this man…just…stirs me up…I hope it doesn’t trigger the Tsuin Hitogara…I mean…that other man seemed to have triggered it…I don’t want to be in the Tsuin Hitogara state right in front of Seliky…I could hurt…yet…Kill her…ugh…I just hope I don’t…I then began to think a bit…should I tell Seliky about the Tsuin Hitogara…I mean…it’ll be good to warn her about it…but…I don’t want to frighten her away from me…ugh…I should tell her…I don’t want to hide something…this life threatening to her…I just hope her young heart can take it…





Part 19





30 minutes till little Seliky gets here…I better head over there now…I mean…I don’t want to be late again…I picked myself off the floor and headed out of my den…as I slithered out…I couldn’t help to noticed that the healing herbs were sprouting again…that’s good…maybe tomorrow…if they grow completely…I could used them on little Seliky…I highly really think her wounds aren’t completely heal yet…it has only been 12 and a half hours sense I last saw Seliky…but it’s not like I’m counting or anything…hehehe…ok I am…so what…cant I miss my new friend…hehehe…of course I can…I continue to move on…thinking of the fun things me and Seliky are going to do together…maybe she could tell me another one of those stories she has…hehehe…I cant wait…I moved on…passed the battle sight of that stupid goo monster…I didn’t bother to look…if I did…all of those memories would just…flood back into my mind…and I don’t want that…

After a short walk…um…I mean slither…I reached our meeting sight…I was surprised to see that Seliky was already there…
“Hey…looks like we both came early…huh?...” she said with a smile on her face…
“Yeah…I guess so…” I reply…she jumped to her feet and ran to me…which surprised me…she was still hurt from last night…
“I saw a weird thing on my way over here…it was so cute…” Seliky called out…
“Hehehe…what did you see Seliky?...” I said back…
“I saw a kitty girl walking along the road…though I didn’t go close to her…actually…I sort of hid in the bushes…but she was so cute…” Seliky said out with a grin on her face…
“Cat girl…I never saw a cat girl before…” I mumbled…I looked away from Seliky and smiled…I wonder how they taste like…I mean…it’ll be something new…
“What are you thinking about?...” Seliky says with a smile…I quickly turned to her…I blushed and sort of swayed a bit…
“Um…nothing that would interest you little one… I said back…
“You’re a weirdo you know that…” She smiled…I shoved her with my hand gently and turned around…
“Looks who’s talking little Miss Albino…” I laughed…
“Hey…I’m proud to be albino…” She said as she folded her arms…I laughed and picked her up…
“I’m only kidding with you…” I told her…
“Hehehe…I know…” she said back…I placed her on my shoulder and headed over to my place…
“So what did you did when I was gone…anything interesting…” she asked me…I remembered what I read about myself in the tablet…but I couldn’t tell her just yet….I’ll wait for the right time…
“Well…um…nothing too interesting…um…I slept pretty much the entire time…oh…and I did something else…but you probably don’t want to know…” I laughed…
“I do I do!!!” she cried out as she jumped up and down…
“Whoa…take it easy…you don’t want to kill yourself there…” I said to her…
“What if I do…” she said to me…I froze and my eyes widen…
“Hehehe…you actually took that seriously…you’re a silly person …” she said to me…I gave a sigh of relief and looked back at her…
“So…what did you do?...” she asked again…
“Well…if you must know…I swallowed a little human…” said while laughing…I could see Seliky’s eyes widen…her face suddenly turn green and she looked up at me…
“uh…can…can we take a pit stop…” she mumbled…I giggled as I picked her up and placed her on the floor…she immediately ran to a nearby bush and all I can here is her throwing up…I started laughing hard…
“Well you wanted to know…” I laughed…she slowly walked back up to me with a cold look in her face…
“…that wasn’t very nice…” she mumbled…
“Hey…I warned you didn’t I…” I laughed…I picked her up and placed her on my shoulder…
“Do you still hurt Seliky?...” I asked…I mean…I had to…after yesterday…I have to see if she is going to be ok…
“Well…my body still hurts really bad…but I gotten used to it…I’m just happy my father ignored me the entire time he was at home…he would have made it all worse…that stupid daddy of mine…” she mumbled…I patted her back with my finger…
“Well he’s not going to bother you now that you are with me…” I told her…she smiled and turned away from me…
“Hehehe…the only person I don’t mind you eating is him…fill free to if you get the chance…” she laughed…I couldn’t help but giggle…
“Well he’ll just probably give me a bad case of indigestion…”I laughed…
“Hehehe…yeah…like rotten fruit…” she said with a smile…”hey…do you want to take a dip in that little hot pool thing you have at your house…” she added…
“well…I don’t know if it’ll be good for you and me to do that…I mean…the volcanic chemicals in the air around it would do good for our wounds…maybe after we are completely better…Ok…” I mumbled…Seliky smiled and looked at me with those pink eyes of hers…
“Okey Dokey…” she said out…I smiled back at her as we continued back to my home…

2 hours passed and I’ve been listening to little Seliky’s interesting stories about life in the city…she told me about parks…stores and all these other strange human places in there…but suddenly Seliky stopped say her stories now…I guess something caught her attention…because she was looking at me funny…
“Um…Aurora…how did you get that scar on your cheek… that scar on your shoulder…” she asked me…suddenly all the painful memories of my childhood suddenly flooded back into my head…such…painful memories…
“Well…I prefer not to say…it’s not you…it’s just…I prefer not to remember that dreadful day…” I mumbled…she looked down at the floor shamefully…
“Oh…I'm…I’m sorry I asked…” she mumbled…it went silent for a couple of seconds…finally Seliky jumped up…looking as she just thought of something…
“Oh Aurora…you remember that big blue blob that attacked us yesterday…” she said out…ugh…why did she have to mention that thing…
“How can I forget…it almost killed you…” I mumbled…Seliky smiled as if she had something really important to tell me…
“Well…I thought it looked a little familiar…so I went to the library when my father fell asleep drunk again because I remember looking at something in a book that looked like it…I think I know what it might be…”




Part 20




After I heard what Seliky I jumped up…nearly throwing her off my shoulder…
“Really…you do…what is it…is there anything we can do to make it leave us alone!?!…” I cried out…
“I said I MAY know what it is…but…this is only a hunch…it may or may not be what I think it is…and that blob thing would even be it…just similar to it…” she said back to me…
“Ok…what do you think it is…” I asked…she pulled out her backpack and took out a book from it…she flipped through the pages and stopped on one…
“Can you put me on the floor so I can show you…” she asked…I picked her up and placed her on the ground…she laid down on the ground and placed the book on the floor so I can see…she pointed at a word and tried to pronounce it…
“Here it is…Am…ame…ameo…Amoeba…am I saying it right?…” she said out…
“How am I so post to know…” I said back…
“ok what ever…I’ll just go with Ameba…well…this thing looks sort of like that blob thing that hurt us last night…” she said to me as she pointed to a picture…the picture show a blob like creature with two ball looking inside of it…
“That’s it…that’s the thing that attacked it…but…it’s a white version of it…” I cried out…
“Wait a second Aurora…this Ameba thing is microscopic…It can’t possibly be the thing that attacked us…” she mumbled…
“But…it looks exactly like it…maybe it got bigger…” I said out…Seliky shook her head…
“No…the biggest ameba can get is 2mm…that is not even close to the size of that strange creature…” Seliky mumbled…I suddenly lost all confidence inside me…
“So basically…we still know nothing of this creature…”I mumbled…
“Well…we don’t know nothing of this creature…but I know it is similar this ameba thing…well…at least how it moves and catch pray…an ameba is small and flat…but that blob thing looks more like a big blue bubble…which makes them different…” she said to me…
“So…we still don’t have a clue on why this thing is fallowing me…” I mumbled…
“Well it does seem interested in you…but more in the way of ”RAWR IM A BIG BLOB THING AND I WANT TO EAT YOU”…but it doesn’t only want you…it looks like it eats other things like m...” she froze and looked at the floor…
“I mean people…” she mumbled…I knew she was thinking on how the creature almost killed her and I rubbed my finger on her back…trying to comfort her…
“It’s ok…you’re fine now…” I said to her…she looked up at me and smiled…
“I know…” she answered…she looked back at the book…
“We might not know why it wants us…but we could try to figure out a way to avoid it…” she continued…
“Like how?...” I asked…
“Well…if I got my information straight…you told me you saw that thing three days ago at night…well…yesterday you and I saw it…at night…maybe it only comes out at night…” She told me…I started to think about it…she was absolutely right…the two times I saw it was at night…and the first time I saw it…it was gone when I came out in the morning…wow…I would have never figured that out…well…maybe I would have after like…20 days…but Seliky thought of it in only one day…she’s a bright bright girl…but after thinking about what she said some more…I thought of something that confused me…
“You’re right about that night time thing…but…why didn’t it attack me the day before yesterday…I mean…it didn’t appear that day…” I asked…I saw Seliky’s face turn into a confused look…
“That is a very interesting question…I don’t know…we know very little of this creature…so figuring out it’s habits would take a lot of time to study it…and of course…if this creature attacks us…and we cannot find anything to fight it off…we’ll both be dead within a month…” Seliky said back to me…a chill fell down my spine…
“What if I find a new place to stay…away from here…maybe I can loose it…” I asked…Seliky shook her head…
“It wont do anything…it’ll find you still…well…that’s what I think…I’m actually still trying to figure out it found you the last time…if I remember right…you said it didn’t see you…” Seliky said back to me…
“It didn’t…but…” I paused…I looked down at my tail and gave a sigh…
“I’m shedding…and…and I think it traced my sent through one of my shedding that were left behind…I never even knew I could shed till today…” I mumbled…
“That explains it…that’s how it found you…” Seliky said out…
“So…what are we going to do…we don’t know when it would attack…” I mumbled…
“That’s true…the only thing we can do now is try to find out more about this thing…” she mumbled…when she said that…I suddenly remember something from my past when Thanh took care of me…I remember that Thanh had two jobs…she worked in the elven military and she studied and made notes of all the creatures in Felarya…maybe she knows what this creature is…
“Um…Seliky…in the city…have you heard the name Thanh before?...” I asked… Seliky looked at me in confusion…
“…hmmm…it rings a bell…why do you ask…” she asked me…I felt that chill again…
“Um…Seliky…can you do me a favor…can you find out more of the Thanh person…or maybe even find her?...” I asked… Seliky looked up at me…
“Um…Ok?...I’ll see if I can find anything...but…but what does this person have to do with anything?...” she asked me…
“Can you just please do it…” I mumbled…
“…Ok…sense you know this persons name…you must know her from somewhere…but…what does she have to do with this blob…” she said back to me…
“…So um…what do you think we should do about this blob thing…” I mumbled…trying to change the subject…
“…well…the only thing we can do is wait…but…can we stop talking about this thing…hearing about this thing is sort of scaring me…” she mumbled…
"Me too…” I said back…

Parts 21 - 25




Part 21






It was around 7:00 PM now…it was getting pretty late now…Seliky asked if she can have her own privet chamber to do something…when I asked her what she wanted it for she said it was human things and it wouldn’t interest me…but it still concerned me…she picked up a lot of the weird mechanical objects the humans I…well…encountered and took them all into that room…I wanted to take a look inside but when I did…Seliky just jumped up and covered her stuff with a blanket saying…”Hey…do you mind!?!...I’m working here!”…which made me wonder…what is she working on…but I guess I should give her some space…I mean…I don’t want to interfere with anything she is doing in there…I slithered to the entrance of my den and covered it…only leaving a small opening so I can see what was outside…it’s almost nighttime and that…thing…could show up…if it does…I’ll be the first line of defense…hopefully I could lure it away so that Seliky could get away…I laid against the wall of my den looking outside to the flickering little lights of the fire flies…it was quiet today…which I like because I hate loud noises…especially loud sudden noises like lightning…well…thunder…I always been afraid of thunder...lightning I can deal with…but thunder…no…I cant deal with such loud noises…making me jump and shooting my scales up…ugh…I hate even thinking about it…it’s so calm today…very peaceful…I closed my eyes and sort of…dozed off a bit…till suddenly I heard this loud crash…making me jump up and hitting my head against the ceiling…dirt fell down upon me from the impact…
“What the heck was that!?!...” I cried out to myself…I shoveled my way out of the big pile of soil to where the noise came from…I found myself in front of the chamber Seliky was in…I could see smoke making it’s way out of it and I saw Seliky staggering out of the chamber coughing…
“Seliky are you ok!?!...What Happened!?!…” I cried out and checked if she was injured…
“Hehehe…nothing to be worried about…I just messed up…that’s all…*cough*” she said with a laugh…
“But…what was that loud crash!?!” I asked…
“It’s nothing Aurora…” she said to me…I looked around the corner into the chamber and only saw a big black mark in the center of the area…
“What were you doing in there?” I asked…
“…Stuff...” she mumbled…
“What kind of stuff?…” I asked…
“Just…stuff…you know…people things…” she replied…I looked at her…confused about all of this…
“I’ll never get you humans…I mean…blowing themselves up for fun…weird…” I mumbled…she giggled and looked up at me…
“Hehehe…don’t worry Aurora…maybe tomorrow I’ll show you what I’m doing…Ok…” she said to me…I looked back at her and gave a small smile…
“What ever little Seliky…” I said and went back over to the entrance…Seliky has been acting weird for the past hour…ever sense that little discussion about that blob thing…could all of this be getting to her head…or…could it be getting in my head…ugh…I have a head ach now…I need to lay down a bit…

It’s 9 PM now…and the sun has completely setted…and still sign of that blob creature…and I haven seen Seliky for a while to…I got up and went over to where I last saw her…I reached “her” chamber and looked around the corner…she wasn’t in there…so I continued along my den till I reached my sleeping chamber…I saw Seliky laying on the floor…
“No wonder you like this room Aurora…the dirt is nice and soft…and pretty…” she said out…
“Pretty?...what do you mean pretty?…it’s just a room of dirt…” I said to her…
“Hehehe…I guess you don’t know about it yet…” she said to me…I became very confused…
“About what…” I asked…Seliky stood up and pulled out what she called…a flash light…some weird cylinder the humans use to see in the dark…
“Well…you know how your home is under ground?...” Seliky said to me…
“No…It’s in the Sky…” I said back…she laughed a bit and then continued on what she was saying…
“And you now how some of you home is under the Acarlin Mountains…right?...” she added…
“Um…where are you going with this?…” I asked…Seliky giggled…
“Look and see…” she said…she turned on the flashlight and pointed it at the wall of the chamber…they were sparkling…like the night stars…she moved the light around to show that the entire room had the same sparkling walls…
“I heard that the humans mine in the Acarlin mountains and take the many jewels in them…well…I looks like you accidentally found a small source of these gems…but of course they are microscopic…almost like dust…so the became part of the dirt…and when light flashes on them…she sparkle…very very pretty…right…” she said to me…I was still gazing at the beautiful display of sparkles filling the room…
“Hehehe…I guess that is a yes…” she laughed…she turned off the flashlight and all the sparkles disappeared…
“Here…you can keep this…I have another…so you can look at them when ever you want…” she said out as she held up the flash light…I took it and smiled…
“Thank you Seliky…you're such a good friend…” I said to her…she nodded…
“Yeah…you too…hehehe…” she laughed…this even helped me realize how much Seliky means to me…she is just…the best little girl I ever met…WAY nicer than the children I met when I was ten…Seliky is like…a sister to me now…like…the sister that I never was able to meet…I looked back down at Seliky and smiled…
“Hey Seliky…what made you say yes when I asked you if you wanted to stay with me?...” I asked…the expression on Seliky's face changed…I could tell she was think…and thing very hard…
“I don’t really know…I guess you were being nice…and…well…I never really knew how a person was when they were nice…only being mean…” she said back to me…I picked her up and put her on my shoulder…
“Hehehe…that didn’t really make to much sense…but I get the point…” I laughed…she smiled back at me as she sat down on my shoulder…
“Yeah…I guess so…” She laughed…
“Hey you want to see some of the other chambers I have here…I mean…I highly dought you looked at all 60 of them yet…”I said to her…she jumped up…
“60 chambers…you must have A LOT of time on your hands to make 60 chambers…why do you even need 60 of them…” she cried out…
“Hehehe…I don’t really know…I guess being alone for 39 years gives one a lot of time to do random things…like digging…” I replied…




part 22




I showed Seliky many of the rooms I built…it’s funny really…I only use 30 of them…Seliky’s favorite room was my sparing room…I made it when I was 20 years old…I guess I figured that I had to train myself to live…I don’t use it as much now…she said she likes it because it was the biggest room I ever made…when I showed her it…she started to run around the chamber like a child playing in one of those human playgrounds…
“Hehehe…I love this room…it is so big…” she yelled out happily…I smiled as I watched her…
“Come on Seliky…there are more rooms to see…” I said to her…she smiled and walked up to me…
“Hehehe…Aurora…teach me how to fight…” she suddenly said to me…I was shocked to hear this…
“Did…you just…say…fight…” I asked…
“I’m speaking English right…yes…I said fight…” she called out…
“But…but Seliky…I don’t know how to fight…” I cried out…Seliky started laughing…but I don’t know why…I was telling the truth…
“Don’t lie to me…you beat that spider lady good…and you beat that blob thing…you were amazing…”She said happily…I remembered about the Tsuin Hitogara…she must have seen me in that state when I had to fight off the Dridder and the blob creature…
“Um…Seliky…I’m no fighter…sure I might be strong…but I can’t protect myself…” I mumbled…
“Hehehe…quit being a weirdo Aurora…you fought really really good…why don’t you want to teach me…” Seliky mumbled…
“No…that’s not it…I can’t teach you…” I mumbled…she looked up at me in confusion…
“Why?...is…is there something wrong?..” she asked me…I gave a deep sigh and turned away…
“If…if you really want to know…fallow me…I have something you must see…” I mumbled…
“Aurora…why do you look so tense?…” she asked me as she ran to my side…I the held my arm which was still wounded from the blob…feeling the scales along my arms…
“Seliky…just promise me…promise me you would hear me out…” I mumbled…
“What is with all of this Aurora…what’s wrong…are you ok?...are you sick?...” she asked…I could see the concern in her pink eyes…
“It’s just…I’m worried about your safety…” I sighed…
“Aurora…what’s going on?...” she cried out…I picked her up and held her in my arms…
“You’ll see enough…” I mermerd…I then headed to my sleeping chamber where I hid the tablet…

When I got there…I placed Seliky on the flood and pushed the dirt away from the Tablets location…she looked at me in confusion as I pulled it out from the ground…
“Wh…what’s that…” Seliky said out…
“Seliky…I know you were born yet when all of this happened…and I don’t blame you for any of the events that this Tablet will reveal to you…” I mumbled…
“Aurora?...this is all so strange to me…what are you talking about…” she cried out…I placed the tablet on the floor to show her…she walked to my side and looked at it…
“You see Aurora…long…long ago…your race…the humans…killed off my people…killed off my family…leaving…me behind…” I mumbled…I saw Seliky’s eyes widen…she began to stutter…tying to get her words out…
“I…I….I…but…that…that isn’t nice…not at all…why…why would we do something…so…so horrible…” she said out…managing to barely get her words out…
“I…I guess they felt intimidated with us being here…” I mumbled…Seliky fell back from shock…I would have too if I was her…such a shocking reality about her people…suddenly flooding into her…I then noticed that she was calming down…
“I’m…I’m sorry…for…for what my people did to you…” she mumbled…I gave a small smile…
“It…it’s ok…but…that is only part of whet…I wanted to show you…” I mumbled…she then turned to me quickly…her eyes widen with shock…
“Only…part…Aurora….I don’t think I can take any more…” she cried out…I looked down shamefully at the floor…I pointed at the area where it talked about the Tsuin Hitogara…
“You see Seliky…my people can…go into this…this state…” I paused…she looked up at me with this sense of fear…
“State?...wha…what are you talking about!…” she yelled…for some reson..I couldn’t get the words to come out…right away…
“It…it…it is called Tsuin Hitogara…and…we…we become monsters…” I mumbled…she looked at me…she took a step back…
“I…I don’t understand…what…what do you mean…by…by monsters…” she cried out…I sighed and read to her about the Tsuin Hitogara and how when w are I a life or death situation…that…we go into this monstrous state…killing anything that is near us…Seliky had this face…full of fear…her eyes had these tears running down from them…
“Aurora…please tell me…please tell me that…you are not like them…please tell me…tell me the truth…please….” She said with this sense of fear…but…that only thing I could was look down….I guess the way I acted made her realize the answer…she didn’t move…as if she was frozen…her eyes were wide and her skin was even more pale than normal…
“Aurora…if…if what you say is true…I…I respect it…and…I…I am willing to…stick…stick by you…” she mumbled…I could tell that she was hesitant…and that…she still didn’t know if she should be with me or not…but…she said that she’ll stick by me…does…does that mean she is…willing to risk her life…to stay my friend…
“So…you…are…you’re not afraid of me…” I mumbled…I saw her shrug a little but she then nodded no…
“You’re…you’re my friend…no…no matter what you are…and…and I don’t care if…if you are a monster or not…” she said trying to put a smile on her face…
“Are you sure…” I mumbled…she nodded and finally got that smile on her cute little face…
“And…I’m pretty much safe with you…I mean…you only get like that when you really need to…like…like with that spider lady…” she said out…I remember what happened with the man…how I went into the Tsuin Hitogara state when the man got me mad…
“Um…yeah…only when I’m in…that situation…” I mumbled…I cant believe I just…lied to Seliky…but…I don’t want her to be scared…and worried…worried about me and her…she looked up at me and gave a sigh…
“So…this is nothing to worry about…see…we figured this out…hehehe…” she said with a small giggled…
“Don’t worry about teaching me to fight…I can learn myself…hehehe…” she continued…I looked down shamefully…
“Ok…” I mumbled…



part 23




It was quiet for the rest of the night…Seliky went off to her little chamber while I went to guard the entrance…just in case that thing decided to come again…I have been laying here by the entrance for a few hours now…and nothing seems to be happening…the last time I saw that weird blob creature was around 10:00 PM…but it is now 11:00 PM…why isn’t this weird creature here yet…did it get lost or something…hehehe…I cant believe this…it actually sounds like I want to see this creature again…hmpt…maybe because I want to beat the living daylights out of for hurting Seliky…*sigh*…I just wonder…why is this thing after me…it’s not like I did anything to it to make it angry…it has to have some sort of reason…maybe Thanh knows something about it…but…I have no idea where she is or even if she is alive…if not…then…how am I going to figure out about this thing…if me and Seliky don’t figure this out…we’ll be dead within the next week…ugh…I bet Seliky is frightened by me…she hasn’t said a word sense I told her about the Tsuin Hitogara…I hope this doesn’t hurt our friendship in any way…she does seem to understand though…I really hope she does…I wonder what she is doing right now…she hasn’t came out of that little room of hers for a while…maybe I should go check on her…I don’t want her to like…blow herself up like the last time…I lifted myself up and went over to where the chamber was…I peeked inside and saw that Seliky was asleep on the floor…she looked so adorable the way she was cuddled up…I slithered over to her and smiled…right next to her was a boxed shaped thing covered with a blanket…it must be the thing she has been working on for the past few hours…I wonder what it is…hmmm…I’ll go take a look…she’s asleep…she wont know…I reached over to the blanket to get a peak…
“Aurora…it’s not nice to go through other people stuff…” I jumped up seeing Seliky getting up and smiling at me…
“Hehehe…Seliky…uh…I was just going to cover you with that blanket…” I said out…she started giggling and looked up at me…
“Nice try Aurora…but you still cant see it…” she laughed…
“Oh come on…just a little peak…” I mumbled…
“Nope…you’ll just have to wait…” she replied…I turned and gave a big sigh…
“Any sign of that thing Aurora?...” she asked…
“No…haven’t seen it yet…which is good…right?...” I said back…
“Yep…hmmm…I wonder why it hasn’t showed up today…this is sure one unusual creature…” Seliky said with her hand near her face…I could tell she was thinking about something…
“What’s on your mind?...” I asked…
“Well…I just had a hunch…but I can’t tell if it is true or not till two more days…” she mumbled…
“Why two more days…” I asked…
“Just trying to figure out this weird little puzzle this thing is…” she laughed as she pulled out a note pad and wrote something down…when she did that…she suddenly reminded me of Thanh…Thanh always had that little note pad thing with her…writing things down when she traveled and studied these weird creatures…she even had it when she watched me play in the forest…I really miss her…she was always so kind to me and everything…
“Hey Aurora…yoo-hoo…anyone home?..” Seliky said out…I shook my head regaining my thought and looked back down at her…
“Sorry…I guess I just dazed off a bit…” I mumbled…
“You’re a funny person…” She laughed and she climbed onto my tail…
“Do you want to go take a walk?...I’m getting all claustrophobic in here…” she said out…
“Walk?...” said with a smile…
“Well…you know what I mean…” she mumbled…
“Well…do you think it is safe…” I asked…she looked up at me and smiled…
“Hehehe…of course…you are so big and strong…you can handle everything…” she sad happily…I couldn’t help but blush…
“And plus…you have that Tsuin Hitogara thing…you can beat down anything… she added…I froze…my body suddenly felt all stiff…
“Seliky…when I’m in that state…I cannot control my actions…you can get hurt when I’m like that…” I mumbled…
“Well duh…that’s why I get out of there when it happens so I wont…see…I came up with a plan for it…” she laughed…I sighed…it’s no point arguing with her…she always comes up with something to say back…
“Ok fine…lets go…lets just hope we don’t run into that blob thing…” I mumbled…
“…yeah…” she mumbled back…when I turned to look at her…I could see this sense of fear in her…she was shaking and holding her arms together…
“Are you still frightened on what happened…” I asked…she looked up at me and gave this fake smile…
“No…of course not…” she said back to me…
“Is your stomach ok?...” I asked…
“How am I so post to know…you’re the one who is trying to treat it…” she laughed…
“Well let me rephrase it…does it still hurt…” I asked…
“Yeah…but it is getting better…” she said back…I lifted her up and placed her on my shoulder…
“Alright let’s head out…” I said out…I started heading over to the exit…when I reached it I pushed the boulder to the side and went outside…that’s when Seliky asked me the question…
“Hey Aurora…how did you get that scar on your cheek and shoulder…it has been bugging me for a while…” I froze again…suddenly that haunting memory flooded into my mind…my scales stood up and I felt that chill run through my back…
“I…I…I’ll rather not speak about it…” I mumbled…she turned at me…
“Why...is it some sort of secret to you or something…” she asked…
“…I just don’t want to relive that memory…I’m sorry…” I mumbled…
“Oh…ok then…I respect that you do not wish to speak about it…” she said back…




part 24





It was silent that night…Seliky didn’t say much sense she asked me about my scars…I guess she really wanted to know how I got them…but…that horrible event is something I would prefer not to relive…I mean…I was only ten when it happened…but…that is in the past now…I turned to see Seliky sitting on my shoulder…even when it was dark…I can still see her pale skin like a white glow in the night…she was looking at her note pad that she carried her…I’m guessing she was just looking over her notes…on what ever she is taking notes on…
“Hey Aurora…” she mumbled…
“Yes Seliky?...What is it?...” I replied…she looked at me and gave a sigh…
“Am I causing you any trouble…” She mumbled…I was shocked to hear what she just asked me…
“No…of course not…what makes you ask such a ridicules question?...” I said back…Seliky looked down at the floor and sighed…
“All of this stuff…did any of this stuff happened to you when I wasn’t here…” she mumbled…
“…well…um…no…” I mumbled…I couldn’t say anything else…she already knew the answer to it…I could see it in her eyes…
“…do you think if I leave…all of it would stop…I mean…I don’t want you to get hurt or something…” She mumbled…I could tell she was thinking about this the entire time…I could see this depressed look in her…
“Seliky don’t be silly…don’t you worry that pretty little head of yours…I’m not going to get hurt…and plus…I like having you around…it is better than being alone…” I said back…Seliky gave a small smile and turned away…
“Well…if you say so...” she mumbled…I smile and picked her up from my shoulder…
“I know so…come on…I can be smart too…” I laughed…Seliky started to giggle…
“I never said you were stupid…” she laughed…
“Yeah I know…but you always seem to have an answer to everything…” I laughed…
“No I don’t…” she said back…I laughed…
“Hehehe…see…there’s one…” I giggled…
“Come on Aurora…stop messing with me…” she laughed…
“Hehehe…ok fine…” I said back…she looked down at the floor for a few second and then looked back up at me…
“Hey Aurora…you can put me down now…I feel like walking now…” she told me…
“Alright…tell me if you get tired…” I replied as I placed her on the ground…
“Thankies…” she said with a smile…
“Thankies?...” I said back…she smiled…
“You know what I meant you silly person you…” she laughed…I smiled and then looked ahead of me…the thick tree’s covered the main path that led to the city…of course we weren’t on the main path…a bit further from it to avoid being spotted by any humans…I then noticed that there were these holes in the floor…quite large ones in fact…and I don’t remember making any traps here…
“Seliky…watch your step here…looks like there are some holes in the floor…” I warned…
“Ok Aurora…” she said back to me…I continued to examine the little holes…they seem to be in rows of four…being parallel to another group of four holes…then continuing on the path ways…I saw that some of the tree’s were pushed aside too…I stopped and began to think…this all seemed very familiar…but…I just cant put my hand on it…I looked at the holes again and suddenly…it hit me…THESE ARE THE TRACKS OF A DRIDDER!!!...
“Seliky!...we got to turn back…there is a Dridder around here!...” I cried out…I looked down and saw that Seliky wasn’t there…
“Oh...this isn’t good…she must have walked ahead…” I thought to myself…I speeded forward looking for her…trying not to make any sound in case the Dridder was close…where can she be…if she runs into the Dridder…she’s done for…I came to this large boulder…I started to head around it…but then I froze…I saw around the corner…the large Dridder that me and Seliky saw the other day…the one with the Dridder…I…killed…I immediately went behind the boulder again…this Dridder is almost twice my size…I cannot take her on…better just avoid her and try to find Seliky…I looked over the boulder again…and I nearly jumped up…I saw Seliky only a few yards from the Dridder…she was completely still…trying to hide herself within the thick bushed…I could see the fear in her even from this distance…this isn’t good…she’s in extreme danger right now…I looked at the Dridder…she wasn’t looking in her direction which gave me a sign of relief…but then she started sniffing the air…
“*sniff* *sniff*…I smell a human…” she said to herself…I almost jumped up…she started looking around the area…it’s only a matter of time till she locates Seliky…I have to do something to both not get seen by the Dridder…and get Seliky out of there…but how…I could try attacking her…but…that’ll only get myself killed…I looked down at the floor and saw that the soil was soft…I could probably burrow here…maybe I can dig under the Dridder and maybe like…pull it’s legs underground giving Seliky the chance to run…no…that wont work…then I’ll get myself killed…maybe I can burrow over to Seliky pull her under…so we will both escape…yeah…that might just work...I could us my right eye to see through the dirt…to make sure she is fine when I do this…I retracted the scales on my arms and began to dig as fast as I could without making any sound…




part 25





After a few minutes…my entire body was underground…meter by meter I headed over to Seliky…I occasionally looked up using my right eye to see through the ground…making sure the dridder didn’t hear me…or see Seliky…I could hear the Dridder's voice from over me…
“Come out you little morsel…I’ll eventually find you…” she said out…I looked over to Seliky…her body heat became higher than normal…she’s scared...so very scared…I just hope she can keep her cool till I get there…I slammed my arms into the dirt and pushed the chunks aside as I slithered through my tunnel…it wasn’t very large and not much room to work but…I was too worried about Seliky to care…I looked up and nearly jumped up…the Dridder was looking in Seliky’s direction…this isn’t good…she might spot her…I started to dig faster to Seliky…she was only a few meters away from me…but so was the Dridder…she was actually on top of me…if I make a wrong move…she’ll know I’m here…I continued to push myself to Seliky…trying not to make any sound or push the dirt too hard…I saw Seliky take a few steps back…poor girl…must be terrified out of her mind…please Seliky…you’re a smart girl…don’t do anything stupid…I looked above me and saw that the Dridder took a few steps away from Seliky…she must have not spotted her yet…I pushed myself faster to her…she was about arms reach but…not enough for me to grab her…I need to get closer…Seliky took another step back…but…she brushed against something…catching the Dridder’s attention…the Dridder turned and looked over to her…I saw Seliky duck behind something…
“So your some where over there you little morsel…” the Dridder said out…I only have a few seconds to do this…before that Dridder finds her…I continued to dig till I was at a conferrable angle to grab her…I readied my arm for the lunge as I turned to make sure the Dridder wouldn’t see…she was looking to a little to the left…see the opportunity I threw my arm through the dirt and grabbed Seliky…she let out a small cry before I muffled her scream with my hand…I dragged her under and brought her to me…she was squirming…trying to fight back…I guess it was too dark for her to realize it was me…I held her tightly holding my fingers against her face…to prevent her from screaming…I looked up and saw the Dridder was right above me…
“hmmm…where did that cry come from…” she said to herself…I remained still…trying to hold terrified Seliky still as she continued to struggle…she was taking deep breaths and trying her best to break from my grasp…through my left eye…I could see that she was crying…her face was so filled with fear…she struggled and struggled till she worn herself out…her squirms weren’t as violent and as strong now…but I still held her tight…I looked up seeing the Dridder was still there…
“Hmmm…I cold have sworn I heard a human girl scream right here…” she said to herself…she turned and sniffed the air a bit…
“Hmmm…I smell a Naga now…” she said to herself…my eyes widen…when my hand came out from the ground…my sent must have went into the air…I remained still as she looked around the area…
“It smells as if…she was right under me…but…there is nothing here…hmpt…I must be loosing my sense of smell…either that or a Naga got to that human first and made off with her…hmpt…pathetic nagas…” she said to herself…she turned and headed off into the distance…I gave a sigh of relief…I looked at Seliky who was still terrified…she struggled for a few second and then hunched over…she was exhausted now…I could see it in her eyes…I made my way out of the tunnel to the outside world again…I gently released Seliky’s face…he was too tired to scream now…she started gasping for air as her head went limp…like a rag doll…
“Seliky…are you alright…” I asked her…she looked up at me…
“Auro…ra…” she mumbled…I smiled at her…
“Yes Seliky…it’s me…” I told her…she gave a sigh and looked at me again…
“Th…thank you Aurora…ju…just…just don’t do that again…” she mumbled…I gave a small laugh…
“Next time don’t wonder off by yourself…” I said back to her…she gave a small giggle…then gave a cough…she leaned against my hand…trying to relax herself…
“Well…I guess this was enough fresh air for us…eh Seliky…” I said with a smile…she smiled and looked up at me…
“…*cough*…yeah…” she sighed…
“Ok…let’s head home…” I told her…” you need to relax…”
“Agreed…” she replied…

Part 26-30







Part 26





We finally reached my home and I entered it…I looked back to make sure nothing has fallowed us…I mean…it would be very bad if that Dridder saw me entering my home…I covered my home with the boulder and slithered over to my main chamber…Seliky was slouched over on my shoulder…still tired from her struggling…I placed her on the ground so she could get her rest…I went to the alarm clock to check the time…it’s now 12:32 PM…3 hours and a half till Seliky heads home…I looked over to Seliky…she stood up and walked over to me…
“Aurora…thanks again for saving me…that spider lady would have most certainly find me…sorry I sort of gave you a tough time though…I kind of…thought you were something trying to eat me…hehehe…” she said to me…I smiled at her…
“I’m just glad you are ok…” I said back to her…she giggled and looked away…
“You know…you are the second friend I ever had…” she said to me…
“Second?...” I said in confusion…
“Oh yeah…Ti-yen…she’s the librarian at the library…she is such a nice lady…” she told me…
“Really...like how?…” I asked…
“Well…I first went to her library and looked through the window…but…of course…I don’t have a library card or anything…I would go there every day to look through the window…but then she noticed me…she asked me if I had any business here…but of course…I didn’t…but she knew I was interested in the books…so she gave me a free library card and said she has a time where she teaches the kids and stuff…and said I could come if I want…I even stay after the class to learn more…she was happy to teach me…she was so nice to me and everything…” she said happily to me…I smiled…
“Hehehe…she sounds like some one I once knew…” I laughed…she giggled and turned away…
“Yeah…I need to go visit her…I haven’t really been to her library for a few days…” she said out…
“Yeah you should…it’ll be really bad to miss such a cute girl…” I said out…she giggled…
“Yeah…you should meet her some time…” she told me…I sighed and turned away…
“I cant…she’s in that city…and I highly dought she’ll accept my kind…she’s human…” I mumbled…
“…who said she was a human…not me…she’s an elf…” she said with a giggled…
“Same difference…it just wouldn’t be a good idea…” I mumbled…
“Oh…ok Aurora…I understand…” she laughed…I patted her on the head and looked away…
“…Me being a naga…puts a lot of stress in my life…” I added…
“So there is a name of your kind…Naga?...” she said out…
“Well yeah…” I mumbled…
“Hehehe…that makes Naga’s cool…because you are a naga…I always thought you were some weird deformed snake thing…” she laughed…I couldn’t help but giggle…
“Well…I’m not the only naga out here…well…I think…I haven’t really seen another naga…I heard of some…like…some Naga named Crisis…supposedly she is the most famous naga…” I said to her…
“Well that makes her cool too…” she said out…
“Well…you might not want to know why she is famous…” I laughed…she looked up at me in confusion…
“Why?...” she asked…
“She is famous for eating people…” I mumbled…she suddenly turned all pale and her eyes widen…
“Uh…well…uh…that’s nice…” she mumbled…I patted her on the head…
“Hehehe…if she is out there…I wouldn’t let her mess with my little buddy here…” I laughed…she folded her arms and gave a funny look…
“I’m not tiny…” she mumbled…I laughed…
“Well…you are smaller than any other human children I seen…” I said with a smile…
“Well…If I was as big as you…would you still say that…” she said back to me…
“Well…you’ll still be small…compared to me…” I laughed…she folded her arms again…
“Fine fine…what ever…” she mumbled…I poked her stomach with my finger and she fell back…
“Well you are back to normal aren’t you Seliky…” I said out…she looked at me in confusion…
“Huh?...” she mumbled…
“You were like…all depressed earlier…and then all scared…but now you are like…happy…” I laughed…she gave a small smiled…
“I love that smile of yours…it’s so cute…” I added…her face turned red…actually adding a little color to her…
“Stop…you are making me blush…” she giggled…

It’s 2:18 AM now…and sadly…Seliky has to go back to her home now…ugh…I don’t want her to go…I mean…I like having her around…but she has to go…if she doesn’t…her father would suspect something and then both me and her would get in trouble…ugh…that father of hers…err…I hate him…hurting Seliky…what…he just…uses little Seliky as a punching bag or something…if I ever see that man…I’ll beat him down to a bloody pulp…Seliky packed some of her stuff and walked up to me…
“Ok…I’m ready to leave now…” Seliky said to me…I smiled and picked her up…I placed her on my shoulder and slithered out of my burrow…
“Do you still want me look up on the Thanh person…” she asked me…
“It’ll be nice if you did…” I said back to her…she nodded and looked away…
“Ok…I will then…” she laughed…
“Thank you for this…you are doing me a really great favor here…” I said back…
“Don’t worry…you’re my friend…and I want to do anything to help you…you help me countless times…” She laughed…she tapped my cheek with my hand…I smiled and looked ahead…I moved near the tree’s…just in case that Dridder was still around…and or that blob creature…all of these things make it very hard just to move outside my home…

After a few minutes…we reached the entrance of the city…of course I hid in the shadows as Seliky walked over to the city…she turned around and gave a wave goodbye…I waved back and then she continued on her way…I felt actually…quite sad…even if she is going to come back tomorrow…I hope she is going to be ok in there…hmmm…I wonder how it inside the city…I only been in it once…and I was ten years old…after that…horrible event…I never wanted to even near the city again…well…until now…I turned around and began to head back to my burrow…and after a long slither…I reached my home…I went inside and headed to my main chamber to have a nice…long nap…

(Here’s a first…the POV is going to shift to Seliky’s Point of View…YAY!!!)

I woke up…and looked out of the small peep hole in my room that led outside…the sun was peeking its big head from the walls that surround the city…hehehe…if I’m lucky…my father would be drunk and I can sneak out of the house…if that happens…maybe I’ll go and visit Ti-yen at her library…I really need to go say hi to the elf…hehehe…well…better get dressed now…I have a long day ahead of me…I jumped out of my wooden bed and ran over to the door…but I didn’t open it…I place my ear on the door to see if my father was lie…waiting by the door to beat me again…he does that some times…and it really hurts…the last time he threw my into a wall…and nearly broke my arm…but…Aurora doesn’t know that…and I don’t plan on telling her either…I mean…I think she is worried about me being here…hehehe…yeah…ugh…I really hate it here…but…I have no other choice really…ugh…I hate my life…well…besides when I’m with Aurora of course…hehehe…well it looks like he’s not out there…so I think it is safe for me to go out now…I turned the knob and slowly tip toed through the small hallway…when I reached the end…I looked around the corner seeing my dad laying on the couch asleep…I stuck my tong out at him and the ran out of the house…I went over to the back to grab the cloths that Aurora gave me…I mean…wouldn’t my father suspect something if I suddenly came home wearing not ragged cloths…I stripped off my cloths and put on the other pair…I then ran over to the side walk to head to the library…not many come out this early in the mourning…so I don’t really have to worry about anyone taking me back to my house…and yes…it has happened to me many times…and I was punished for it too…but I make sure not to get caught…I’m sneaky like that…hehehe…and they’ll have to catch me first anyways…and I bet I can run faster than any of them…hehehe…well…I saw a few people heading my way…so I went into a alley…and hid behind a dumpster…as I watched the people go by…I noticed this…random metal pipe right next to me…maybe I can use this for my projects…I picked it up and stuck it as far into my little bag as I could…but of course…it being about 3 feet long…it stuck out a bit…but what ever…I walked out of the alley and continued on my way…I looked ahead and saw that the library was two building away…I ran over to it and peeked through the window…the sign on it said closed…the library doesn’t open till another hour…darn it…I guess I woke up a bit too early…but I can wait…I peeked through the window again…looking through the dark library…I saw something moved it there…I squinted my eyes to see what it was…after a few second…I saw it was Ti-yen…she was getting the library ready for opening…I tapped on the window and she turned to me…she smiled and walked over to the door and unlocked it…she opened the door and peeked her head through it…
“Hey Seliky…I haven’t seen you is awhile…please come in…” she said to me…I smiled back at her and walked inside…
“I have been my Miss T…I just have been seeing a new friend of mine…” I told her…
“Really...you have a new friend…that’s great…who is the lucky one…” she asked...I was about to say Aurora…but then I remembered that Aurora told me that I should tell anyone in the city about her…
“Well um…her name is uh…s…Silvia…yeah…” I said out…Ti-yen smiled at me and turned around…
“I haven’t heard of a Silvia that is your age…well…except for one of my books…but anyways…she must be a luck girl to have a friend like you…” she said back to me…I blushed…
“Hehehe…I guess so…” I replied…
“So…what brings you here Seliky…my class doesn’t start till 10:00 AM…” she asked…
“Well I came to do some research…and…well…to turn in the book that I checked out…” I said back…she put her hand near her lips and smiled…
“Interesting…what kind of research…” she asked…
“Well…first I want to do some research on two of the creatures that live here in Felarya…and also I promised Silvia I can go look up a person for her…” I said to her…
“Well…over there is Section 4G…they have a lot of interesting books about the creatures here in Felarya…” She told me as she pointed at the area… “What are the two creatures you are looking for…maybe I can help…”
“Well um…I’m not really sure what one of them is…but the other are called Nagas…” I said back…she smiled…
“Nagas you say…Nagas are very interesting being…they are a lot similar to you and I…” she told me… “Personally…they are my favorite creatures…” I started to remember Aurora and smiled…
“Yeah…they are mine too…” I said back…
“Well…fallow me…I’ll show you the where the books on Nagas are…” she said to me…she started walking over to a section of books…I fallowed her till she stopped at the books…she looked through them one by one…se pulled out 3 books and handed them to me…
“Here we are…these books have lot information about Nagas…” she said to me…
“Thank you very much Miss T…I really appreciate this…” I thanked…
Oh…you also wanted a book on Felaran creatures…” she suddenly said out…jumped up and ran over to the other side of the row of books…she then pulled out a book and came back…she handed it to me and smiled…
“Here you go…this may help you a bit…” she said to me…
“Hehehe…thanks again Miss T…” I laughed…
“Well Seliky…I have a lot of work to do here…so…fill free to look through any books as you like…and do any research you need…just remember to put the books back where you got them…ok…” she said to me…I nodded and smiled…
“Ok Miss T…I will…thanks again for helping me…” I said out…




Part 28




(Again…this chapter thing takes place in Seliky’s POV ^_^)

I sat down at a table and opened the book that Ti-yen gave me…I flipped through the pages to see if there was anything about that Amoeba thing that attacked me and Aurora…so far…nothing…just a bunch of random creatures…mermaids…Nagas…oh…that spider lady is called a Dridder…but…I don’t see anything on that blob creature…it’s not in this book…I closed the book in disappointment and gave a sigh…dead end looks like it…I stood up and walked over to the section of books that Ti-yen pointed out to see if there were any other books on the topic...I began to look through the long rows of books for anything that may show what that creature is…but…so far nothing…I looked to the side of me and saw Ti-yen at the other side of the library…putting all the returned books in there right places…I waved at her and she looked up at me…she smiled and walked over to me…
“Yes Seliky…what is it?...” she asked…
“Well um…the book you gave me didn’t have the specific creature I was looking for…are there any others?...” I asked…
“Well…yes…but they all pretty much say the same thing…well of course…there is my privet collection…but I don’t lend them out to anybody unless they have government authorization…” she said to me…
“Oh…ok Miss T…thank you though…” I said to her…
“What creature are you looking for anyways…” she asked…
“I don’t know really…it is like a big Ameba thing…” I mumbled…she froze for a few seconds…she then adjusted her glasses and turned around…
“Well Seliky…if you want…when I close the library…I can go look through my private collection to see if that creature is in there…” she said to me…
“Hehehe…you’re the best Miss T…” I said out…she smiled and went on continuing her work…I went back to the table and closed the book I was reading before…well…that’s one thing I needed to research…now I need to look up that Thanh person Aurora wants me to find…I got up and went over to the computer…I turned it on and waited for it to load up…as I waited…I began to think about Aurora…I wonder what she is doing right now…hehehe…probably still sleeping…I looked up and saw the computer was logged in…I clicked on the people data base to see if this Thanh person was in there…ok…lets see…T…H…A…N…H…hmmm…is that how it’s spelled…eh…what ever…I clicked enter and it started searching…it took a few minutes but it finally came to a name…Thanh Shonima…hmmm…weird name…but…what ever…I clicked and a large article came up about her…

“Thanh Shonima was a resident of the elvin village Telethika…one of the few allies of Negan City…known as both a great worrier and a trader…she was highly known for her powerful magic arts and swords wielding skills…she was a troop in the Elvin army sense she was12 years old…living on her own when her parents died when she was 14 years old…later in the years…she was a soul survivor of a battle between our people and a group of nagas that were living near the Ascarlin Mountains…she continued there as a mercenary to both Telethika and Negan City…seven years after that…it was found she was housing a Naga in her home…and was arrested and sentence to death…but when our military checked her home…there was no Naga…so the execution was cut…after that…she isolated herself from the rest of the people…including our own…the only time she was seen was when she was hired for a job…after 20 years…Telethika went at war against a rival elvin village…and she was killed in combat Thanh never had any children in her place…ending her family’s bloodline of great worriers…”

I stared at the screen…looking into the very broad details they gave me…it said she was housing a naga…could that naga have been Aurora…I mean…why would Aurora be asking me about this person if she didn’t have any connections to her…I wrote down the article on my note pad and then turned off the computer…Ti-yen walked up behind me with a large stack of books in her arms…
“Looks like you are done Seliky…” she said to me…I nodded
“Yep…I found a little bit on the person I was looking for…” I said back…
“That’s good…hey…do you mind if you can help me prepare the Library for opening…I’ll really appreciate it…” she asked…
“Sure…I’ll help…what do you want me to do?…” I said back…
“Just help me put these books in there right place…here…this paper should help you find where they need to be…” she told me as she handed me a small stack of books and a sheet of paper…
“No problem…I’ll be done in a jiffy…” I said back as I went out to put the books away…
“I really appreciate your help Seliky…” she said to me…
“Hehehe…well…you always help me out…I have to make that up eventually you know…” I replied…
“Well…there is no need for that…you are good company…” she laughed…I smiled and put one of the books on the shelf…I looked at her again and noticed she had a golden ring on her finder…
“Hey Miss T…is that a new ring…” I asked…she looked down at her ring and smiled…
“Oh…this thing…this is my engagement ring…” she said back to me…
“You’re getting married Miss T !?!” I said out…she started laughing…
“Yep…soon you wouldn’t be calling me Miss T anymore…” she said to me…I giggled…
“Hehehe…ok Miss T…what ever you say…” I laughed as I continued to put the books away…




Part 29





(Sorry…the story is going back to Aurora’s POV now…)

I woke up…I turned to see what time it was...the alarm clock thing said 8:00 AM…I slowly picked myself up and slithered slithered out of the main chamber…I feel very hungry right now…maybe there is a little human in one of my traps or something…I hope so…I feel even more hungry than I ever felt before…as I went along and I turned and noticed I was near the chamber that Seliky was in all last night…hmmm…maybe she left what ever she was working on there…I peered inside and saw the box shaped object under the blanket that Seliky had over it…heheheis is my chance to see what it is…Seliky wont know…I slithered over to the object and reached for it…I pulled off the blanket…only to see a large stone with a paper attached it…I picked it up and looked at it…
“Nice try Aurora…” it said…I stared at it…then I crumpled it up and tossed it away…I should have seen this coming…I mean…Seliky is too bright to just leave something that she doesn’t want anybody to see…I slithered out of the chamber in disappointment…I went outside and checked on those medical herbs that the blob thing destroyed the day before yesterday…they were completely grown back now…this is great…I can finally treat mine and Seliky’s wounds…I gathered some of the herbs and went back inside my den…I went into the deepest part of my burrow where it is the coldest and placed them in the coldest chamber to preserve them…I then headed back outside over to the traps that I laid…as I slithered on…I looked around my surroundings…it felt quite chilly out here and the air was very moist…more that usually…well…it is some what of a rain forest out here…but the air shouldn’t be this moist…maybe there is a rain coming…I should gather those fruits for Seliky now before the poor this drown in the rain…I went off of my usual rout to go pick some of those fruit that Seliky loves to eat…I reached the bush…only to be disappointed that all the berries were gone…most likely that a bunch of disgusting Dire Rats came and ate them all…ugh…these bushes usually grow in groups…maybe there is another one some where…I began to search the area till I came to this big circle of dead plants…this was the area that that blob thing disappeared before I fainted…I looked at the dead grass and the decaying trees…the air felt a lot more dryer here…even when today…the air is very moist…it feels like all the like in this one circle was…just…drained away…I mean…it has been a day sense I saw that thing…and it takes a day for the grass to grow…but…this grass doesn’t even look like they is spouting…nothing here is growing any more…I felt this overwhelming sense of fear in me…this blob creature is becoming even more frightening as I figure out a little more about it…ugh…I don’t want to think about it anymore…I turned and slithered away…not looking back at the patch of death behind me…I slither into an area completely surrounded by tree’s…but the center of the area was just grass…nothing else…I have never been in this area before…it isn’t like every where else…hmmm…maybe I can use this place fore something…I slithered over to where the plain met with the thick layer of trees...I noticed there was this sudden drop going down from there…I could see the entire path that leads from the city to the mines from here…this is a very ideal look out spot…I could try to connect this spot to my burrow when I have the time to so I can just head strait from there to here quickly…hmmm…I guess me stopping by that patch of death wasn’t all that bad…I mean…I would have found this place if I hadn’t…I continued to look around the area and saw a bush…it was the same type of bush that grew the berries that Seliky loves…this must really be my lucky day…I mean…this place is pretty much perfect…the only thing is…if I connect my burrow to this area…it’ll be too easy to spot…and I cant just simply cover it with a boulder…because it’ll be weird to see a random boulder in a center of a big open area…I suddenly heard my stomach growling…ugh…if I wasn’t so hungry…I could think more straight…I’ll brain storm on this later after I had a decent meal…I took note on this area’s location as I picked some of the berries from the bush…then I continued on to where I laid the traps…

After a few minutes of traveling…I finally reached the area where I place my traps…I looked into each of them…fortunately…the was a human in one…It was a human male…he looked as if he was a soldier or something…he looked up at me with fear as he clench onto his rifle…I didn’t want to risk getting shot so I proceeded with caution…I flicked up dirt so it’ll blind him…then I grabbed him while he was staggering…his arms were bounded by my grip rendering his rifle useless now…I brought him up to my face and smiled…
“Well…it looks like I got ya…” I laughed…she trembled with fear as he stared at me…
“Y…you’re the cause…of…the many disappearances here…are…aren’t you…” he said cowardly…I’m guessing the humans are catching on to me now…I just now noticed that for the passed few days…the humans that were in my traps were soldiers…
“Well I have to eat you know…” I mumbled…I began to squeeze his body till he was forced to drop his rifle…
“Cant have you with that thing…” I said to him…I opened up my moth and I saw his eyes widening…
“No…please…don’t do this…” he cried out…but I didn’t really listen…I just plopped him head first in my mouth…she began to squirm around in my mouth…trying to get free…I pushed him up hard onto the roof of my mouth till the pressure worn him out and he went limp…which then I began to swallow…his entire body was in my mouth…with half of it in my throat…I swallowed again and he slid a little further down…I gave a final gulp sending him all the way down and I can feel him plopping into my stomach…ah…I feel a lot better now…he was now kicking inside my stomach…which tickles…but that sensation always comforts me…for some reason…I better get out of here now…I don’t want to be out here exposed…having a full belly…I picked up the berries I picked earlier and headed home…





Part 30





I was about halfway home now…my previous…uh…meal was still kicking around in my stomach…cant the little guy see that there is no way out…he’s stuck in there till my stomach decides to began its job…which for one thing…it hadn’t started yet for some reason…but what ever…I suddenly found my myself stopping along my usual path…I saw four prints on the ground…foot prints…but doesn’t seem to be a Dridder…I fallowed the set of prints with my eyes till the ended at a tree…I stared at the tree ad noticed a set of claw marks leading up the tree…this unusual…I don’t remember seeing these prints when I was heading over to my traps…something is here…I looked up the tree and noticed this shadowy figure in the canopy…it was staring at me…I grew frighten and froze with fear…it was really big…about my size and had green eyes…but for some reason…what ever it was…it wasn’t moving…just hanged there staring at me…I realized that this thing wasn’t going to bother me…I think…if it was going to attack…it would have done it now…I slowly slithered backwards…keeping my eyes fixed on this creature…making sure it doesn’t try to attack me from behind…but it just hanged there still…after a few minutes…when I was out of sight of the creature…I quickly turned around and moved as fast as I could to my burrow…I was very scared about that thing…I slithered into my burrow and covered it up with my burrow…I leaned against the wall of my burrow as I took deep breaths…I wasn’t this frighten before…beside when I met that blob thing…this is great…now during the day I have to worry about that creature that I saw and at night I have to worry about that blob thing…ugh…I cant seem to have a break from all of this…I laid against the all for a few minutes…I tried to clear my mind of what happened…I really need to relax now…I then felt the little human inside me began to kick around again…I guess all of this fear is messing up my digestion…I slithered through my burrow till I got to my hot spring chamber…a quick dip should calm me down…I then remembered that the chemicals in the air wouldn’t do any good for my still healing wounds…I sighed to myself and continued back to my main chamber…I laid down on the soft soil and picked up the flashlight thing that Seliky gave me…I turned it on and pointed it at the wall…the wall began to sparkle beautifully in the light as I laid there and watched…I suddenly felt all relaxed now…seeing this beautiful scene is very…comforting…I then remembered when I was with Thanh…that I always loved shiny things for some reason…it just always caught my attention…some times I could just stare at them for hours and hours…though…that was when I was little…now that I’m older…this kind of stuff doesn’t have me starring for hours…but…I guess I just changed from starring to relaxing then…I wonder where Thanh is right now…ever sense I met Seliky…I have been thinking about her a lot lately…I wish I see her again…I…I really miss her…she was so kind to me and tooken good care of me…I hope Seliky can find out where she is…I don’t care if she is in the city and I cant ever see her again…I just want to know that she is still out there…hehehe…I cant wait for Seliky to come…so she can tell me what she found out about Thanh…well…if she found anything…maybe she is too busy looking for that blob thing…hehehe…maybe she is with that other friend of hers…Ti-yen was it?...I turned off the flash light thing and flipped myself over…I gave a big yawn afterward…I suddenly heard my stomach growling…hehehe…I guess my stomach decided to do its job now…I felt the little human kicking around in me again…I giggled a little feeling the tickling sensation before getting all drowsy…I turned towards the alarm clock Seliky made and looked at it a bit…Seliky said this thing can wake me up at a certain time…maybe I can put it so it’ll wake me up an hour before Seliky gets here…I looked at the alarm clock…squinting my eyes to try to see the tiny handwriting of Seliky’s telling how to operate it…after a few minutes…I finally figured out how it worked…I set the clock to wake me at 3:00 PM so I can be ready to pick up little Seliky…after that…I laid down and closed my eyes to take a nice little nap…again…

It's been a while, but I've finished reading the 30 chapters you posted so far. You do a good job at presenting that surviving in the forest is also dangerous to predators, which not many authors do. Aurora and Seliky are attaching, especially how Seliky is always one step ahead of Aurora, and how Aurora uses quick thinking to solve problems rather than brute forcing her way through. I'm eager to see the rest and when Jewlia is introduced.

Aurora's Story Part 31-35




Part 31




I woke up to this loud sound next to me…I opened my eyes and turned towards it…the sound seemed to be coming from the alarm clock that Seliky made me…the sound was repentant and very annoying…I picked it up and looked at it…trying to make out on how to shut it off…after a few minutes of pressing random buttons…it finally shut off…I gave a quick sigh and looked at what time the clock said…it said 3:04 PM…which means that there is 56 minutes left till Seliky gets here…it is a thirty minute journey from here to our meeting point…so I have a few minutes before I need to go…I place the clock on the floor and headed to the exit of my burrow…when I reached the exit…I peeked through the small opening between the boulder and the wall of my burrow…I had to make sure that that creature I saw earlier wasn’t out there…when I figure the coast was clear…I pushed the boulder aside and headed out…I went slow at first…and used my purple eye to make sure no other heat sources weren’t near by…there was nothing…so I proceeded on…but still…I didn’t let my guard down…after a few minutes of slithering…I came to the place where I saw the creature…I looked up at the tree and there it was…hanging up there…though…it wasn’t looking at me…it seemed to have it’s mind set on something else I tried to move as quietly as I could…but suddenly…the creatures head quickly turned towards me…it stared at me with its green eyes as it hanged…motionless…I was afraid to move now…this dark figure is really creeping me out…after a couple of minutes of me being frozen in fear…the creature just looked away…like I wasn’t even here…but…I know it saw see…it was staring right at me…I didn’t want to think about it that much…I got out of there as quickly as possible…without looking back…

30 minutes passed as I waited by the large boulder that was our meeting place…I sat there with my back against the boulder…wondering what that creature was…I couldn’t tell what it was because It was so high up…and the branches of the trees casted a shadow over it…it seems to have no interest in me though…but…I still need to be cautious when I am around it…I also need to make sure that it doesn’t harm Seliky in any way…my top priority is to keep Seliky safe…she’s my only friend now…and seeing her almost die…tore me apart…I took a deep breath and looked down at the floor…for some reason…my body was really aching now…my muscles were very tense and it was really hard for me to breath…I guess all of this stress is really putting a toll on my body…I dragged my hands through the dirt as I continued to wait for Seliky…I looked up…hearing a faint rustling in the distance…I saw Seliky waking up to me with a stack of those human book things…
“Hehehe…hey Aurora…” she said happily…
“You’re here early…” I said out…
“Well you are too Aurora…” she said back…I laughed…
“True to that…” I said out…Seliky dropped the books onto the floor and looked up at me with a some what depressed face…
“What’s wrong Seliky?...” I asked…
“Well you see Aurora…I couldn’t find anything on the blob creature…” she mumbled with a cold tone…
“Don’t worry Seliky…at least you tried…right…” I said to her…trying to cheer her up…she gave a small smile and looked up at me…
“Yeah…but still…it wasn’t hard enough…” she replied...
“Now stop with that Seliky…you are beginning to sound like me now…” I said out…she smiled…
“And what’s wrong with being you Aurora…maybe I think you are really neat…” she said back…ugh…I should had seen this coming…her coming up with these questions that are very hard for me to answer…
“That isn’t very fair…” I mumbled…she laughed and picked p her books again…
“Hehehe…well…let’s go to your place now…I have some information here and I really need to get back to work too…” she said to me…
“Work on what?...” I asked…
“I told you before…I cant tell you till I am finished with it…” she laughed…
“Well…what is the point of telling me when it is finished when I could just see what it is…” I said back…Ha…I got her here…
“oh…being a smart one ey…well…when I finish it…you wouldn’t be able to tell what it is…thus…needing me to tell what it is so that you can under stand what it is…” she said back…I slouched over…
“Ugh…I just can’t seem to win with you Seliky…” I mumbled…she laughed for a bit and then looked forward…
“Hehehe…I guess not…” she laughed…I picked her up and place her on my shoulder…then I began to head back to my burrow…
“Hey Seliky…did you find anything about Thanh?...” I asked…I mean…I had to…it has been bugging me this entire day so far…I noticed Seliky’s face suddenly changed…she looked all depressed now…




Part 32





“Is there something wrong Seliky?...” I asked…Seliky looked down at the floor in shame and gave a sigh…
“No…there isn’t anything wrong Aurora…it’s just…” she paused for a second and looked up at me…
“This Thanh person…she was your friend…right…when you were little…” she mumbled…I felt this chill run through me…
“H…how did you…know…” I mumbled…she gave another sigh…she pulled out a sheet of paper and showed it to me…
“this…it said Thanh was found housing a naga…that was you…wasn’t it…I mean…what other reason did you want me to look up this person…” she mumbled…I looked down at the floor and gave a little nod…
“Yeah…she raised me ever sense I was an infant…I just need to know where she is…that all…I really want to know that she is still out there…” I mumbled…I saw Seliky become even paler than normal…her eyes widen and I could see that she was sweating…
“This…this makes it very hard for me to say this…” she mumbled…I turned towards her again…
“Say what?…” I asked…she turned away from me and gave a sigh…
“Your friend…Thanh…passed away…” she mumbled…my eyes widen…I suddenly felt cold all over…and I could feel a tear dripped down my eye…
“She’s…dead…but…but how…” I cried out…Seliky looked down shamefully…
“She died tying to protect her village…” she mumbled…her voice was so faint…but…to me it was like a bullet piercing through my heart…
“I’m very sorry Aurora…” she mumbled…I looked at her…trying to endure the Sevier pain I was feeling…I guess she saw it through me and walked up to my neck…she then gave me a hug…
“Don’t feel sad Aurora…I’m sure she is thinking of you in her after life…I’m sure that she doesn’t want you to feel sad about her death…” she said to me…I started to cry…
“But…she was…like my mother I never knew…she…took care of me…loved me…knowing that she is dead…is like…throwing me into an endless dark abyss…never to see the light again…” I cried…Seliky looked up at me and patted me on the cheek…
“There there Aurora…don’t just focus on her death…focus on the happy moments you had with her…just…don’t be sad Aurora…seeing you like this…makes…makes me sad…” she mumbled…I could see tears filling her red eyes…I wiped the tears from my eyes and tried to calm myself down…
“You’re…you’re right Seliky…” I said out…she gave a small smiled…
“Aurora…if it makes you feel better…I can try to find a picture of her for you…” she said to me…
“That would be nice…” I mumbled…times like these make me with I had Tabie with me…but I don’t…I took a deep breath and looked at Seliky…
“Come Seliky…lets head home…I…I really need to lie down…” I mumbled…she gave a small smile as she wiped away her tears…
“You’re going to be ok…right Aurora…” she asked...
“I hope so Seliky…” I mumbled…I started to head home…trying to forget about the horrible news Seliky just told me…

It was quiet for most of the trip…I guess Seliky was unsure If I wanted to talk…she looked as if she wanted to say something…but she kept on swallowing it up…every so often I would look at her...occasionally she would start reading one of the books she had…only to close it up after a few seconds of reading…I looked ahead of me…seeing that I was in the same area where I saw that creature…I picked up Seliky and placed her at my side…
“Hey…what’s the big idea…”she called out…
“Shhhh…be quiet…” I whispered…I looked up to see the creature starring at me with its green eyes…I placed Seliky beside me to try not let the creature see her…I mean…I think most creatures see humans as food…and well…if it saw Seliky…it might attack…
“Seliky…walk besides me…and try not to make any sound…” I whispered…she looked up at me in confusion…
“Why?...” she said back…
“Just do it…” I whispered…I began to slowly slither passed the tree that the creature was hanging on…keeping Seliky out of its sight…the creature just looked at me for a couple of seconds ad then turned away…as if it had no interest in me…Seliky walked by my side…looking up…trying to see what I was trying to hide her from…after I thought it was safe…I scooped Seliky into my hands and went as quickly as I could to my burrow…
“What is going on Aurora?...” Seliky cried out…
“That thing in the tree…it has been there for awhile…watching me…I just wanted to make sure you are safe…” I said back as I looked over my shoulder…I closed my green eye to see if its internal heat was near by…it wasn’t…which meant it didn’t fallow me…I gave a sigh of relief…
“Hmmm…a new creature…did you get a good look at it…maybe I can find something about it…” Seliky said out…
“No…it is too high up in the tree tops for me to see…and I can’t clime all that well…” I mumbled…
“Cant clime…but you are part snake…” Seliky laughed…
“Correction…part Ball Python…they are know to burrow…not clime…” I replied…
“What ever Aurora…let’s get home…” she laughed…I gave a small smiled…though…I still had the pain from the learning of Thanh’s death…




Part 33




I slithered into my den with Seliky on my shoulders…looking back to make sure that creature didn’t fallow us…I placed Seliky on the floor and then covered the den with the boulder…
“Ok…we are safe now Seliky…” I said out…Seliky scratched her head…
“Were we really in any danger…I mean…that thing doesn’t really looks like it is going to attack us any time soon…” Seliky said out…
“I don’t want to take any chances…” I mumbled as I lifted Seliky up and went deeper into my burrow…Seliky took the bag looking thing off her back and put it on the palm of my hand and started looking through it…
“Hehehe…what ever you say Aurora…what ever you say…” Seliky said with a laugh…
“What are you looking for Seliky?...” I asked as I tapped her shoulder with my finger…She laughed…
“None of your business you silly Naga you…” she said out…I sighed…
“Why cant I not know.” I mumbled…
“Because it is a surprise you silly naga…”she laughed…
“Ugh…you and your surprises…” I laughed as I put Seliky down on the floor…
“hehehe…yep…” she laughed as she grabbed her bag…she then started heading deeper into my burrow…I watched were walk and I suddenly felt all hungry…I felt my stomach growling at me and I began to drool…I suddenly snap to my senses and shook my head…
“What am I thinking!?!” I shouted to myself as I wiped my drool away…
“Seliky is my friend…and I won’t let my instincts take a hold of me…” I told myself with a sigh…I slithered deeper into my burrow and moved next to Seliky…I looked down at her and smiled…
“Hehehe…uh Seliky…um…how was your day at the human city?...” I asked…then my belly growled loudly…Seliky looked up at me and smiled…
“I know some one who s hungry…” she laughed…I gave a fake laugh…I mean…I was hungry…but…I was hungry for something I don’t want…
“Hehehe…I’m not hungry…” I said out…my stomach then growled loudly again…
“Sounds like you are hungry to me…” She mumbled… “You go fixed that…I’m going to work on my little project…”
“But I already ate…” I mumbled…stupid stomach…doesn’t know how to tell a friend from food…
“Well…ok…I just don’t want you eating me or something…” she said back giggling…I gave a fake giggle as I tried to hush my hungry belly…Seliky looked up at me…
“Is there something wrong Aurora…you look tense…” Seliky mumbled…
“M…me…tense…of course not…” I cried out…Seliky looked up at me in confusion…I have to think of something…or else Seliky might suspect something…
“…uh…um…I…I have some fruits for you…and…um…I picked some of those healing herbs too…” I mumbled…Seliky smiled…
“Good…I’m starving…and this big wound on my little belly has been stinging for awhile…” she said out as she lifted up her shirt and showed that the bandages Aurora rapped on it had a few blood stains…I suddenly felt all dizzy and I guess Seliky saw this and dropped her shirt…
“Oops…my bad…I forgot about that problem of yours…” Seliky said out and blushed…I regain my thoughts and smiled…
“Hehehe…it’s ok tas…” I paused…I almost said tasty…I looked down at Seliky and she was looking at me with confusion…
“...I mean…sweetie…” I mumbled…Seliky looked at me strangely and then turned away…
“You’re acting weird now Aurora…” she said out…I felt all cold now…She then looked up at me and smiled…
“But hey…every one is weird in their own weird way…so I don’t mind…” she laughed….I gave a sigh of relief and turned away…trying to hide my hunger for Seliky…
“…yeah you’re right…” I said with a sigh…I picked Seliky up…I felt like just stuffing her into my mouth and swallowing…but…I endured the action…even though I really wanted to…damn it…my naga instincts are kicking in again…it’s telling me to just gulp her down…but…I cant do that…Seliky is my friend…I placed Seliky on my shoulder…trying not to think about her lovely taste…and then headed into the room where I left the herbs and fruit…




Part 34




When I reached the room where I left the stuff for Seliky…I placed Seliky on the floor…I was still trying to ignore both…my hunger and the though of Thanh’s death… Seliky looked up at me and smiled…
“Ooh…you got my favorite Aurora…thank you…” Seliky said out as she took a handful of berries and stuffed them in her mouth…I picked up the herbs and looked at Seliky…
“Do you want me to treat that wound of yours…” I asked…Seliky nodded as she swallowed the berries that were in her mouth…her lips still had some of the juice from the berries…
“That would be very nice Aurora…” Seliky laughed…I began to mash up the herbs with a stone till it became a powder…the I put a little bit of water on it to make a cream like substance…
“Ok…can you take off the bandages for me sweetie?...” I asked…Seliky nodded and lifted up her shirt…she began to take off the bandages till I could see the gapping wound…I almost fainted nut…I held it in…
“This may sting a bit…” I warned her…she smiled showing that she can take it…I put a little of the herbal cream on my finger and began to rub it on her stomach…I saw her eyes tighten…showing that she felt the stinging sensation…after a few seconds of rubbing the cream…I wrapped her wound up again…
“Well there you go…you are all finished…” I told her…she smiled…
“I feel better already…do you want me to treat those wounds on your arms Aurora…they look bad too…” she said out…I looked at my arms…They were in pretty bad shape from when I stuck my arms into that blob creature to save Seliky…
“Well…If you want to…I mean…I’m fine…”I said out…
“Lay down Aurora…you are WAY too modest…” Seliky said to me as she folded her arms…She didn’t seem to be wanting me to say something back…so I did what she said…I laid down as Seliky grabbed a arm full of cream and hoped onto my arms…she began to rub the cream on my arms…I felt the incredible stinging sensation…but after awhile…it began to feel very relaxing…it was like all the pain in my arms were like…sucked away…
“Feeling comfy Aurora?...” Seliky said out…
“Of course Seliky…” I said back…Seliky finished my right arm…she jumped onto my stomach and walked across it to get to the other side…her little feel ticked my stomach and I couldn’t help but giggle…and I guess to little Seliky it was like an earthquake to her because she tripped…but she started laughing…
“Aurora…how am I so post to help you if you make me trip…” she laughed…
“I’m sorry Seliky…” I said back as I calmed down…she continued on and jumped onto my left arm and began to work on it…I felt so relaxed that I almost fell asleep…after a few minutes Seliky jumped off my arm to the floor…
“I’m done…” she said happily…I lifted myself up ad smiled at her…
“Thank you so much Seliky…” I said out…Seliky smiled…
“No problem Aurora…you’re like my big sister to me…” she said back…I smiled…
“You’re like my little sister Seliky…” Seliky blushed…
“Hehehe…we are a big family now…” she said out…I nodded…just then…I heard a loud crash out in the distance…Seliky and I jumped up…
“What was that…” Seliky cried out…
“I don’t know…let me check…” I said back…I closed my green eye to see through my purple one…I saw a large heat source…THAT WAS INSIDE MY DEN!!!
“Seliky…there is something here!...” I cried out…after examining the heat source…I realized it was a Dridder…but not the same Dridder from before…
“What…what is it…” She cried out…
“A Dridder…we got to get out of here…” I cried out…I quickly grabbed Seliky and headed out of the chamber…hopefully I can get passed it when it is in a different chamber…I managed to avoid it and got out of my burrow…but as soon as I got out…I heard a voice from behind me…
“Well well well…looks like there was a Naga living in this area after all…” I froze and slowly turned my head…seeing a Dridder with a purplish black color spider half and white hair…she was just a little bigger than me…
“What kind of Naga lives so close to Dridder territory…you must have a death wish…” she said out…Seliky began trembling in my hands…she then sniffed the air a bit…
“Hehehe…you seem to have a human with you too…great…I get to kill a Naga and have a little meal…” She said out…Just then she dashed at me at great speed…hardly giving me time to react…I through myself to the side…barely dodging her claws…she then slashed at me again but I grabbed her arm with my free hand before she got to me…she pushed hard to cut me but my strength was greater than hers…
“Looks like we have a feisty one here…makes the hunt so much better…” she said out…she lashed out her other arm and impaled my breast with her sharp claws…I screamed in pain as she pulled back her claws…I felt my blood dripping down my chest…but I didn’t look…
“Got ya…” she said teasingly…I pushed her away…hard enough for me to get a few seconds head start to take Seliky to a safe place…
“Oh no you don’t…you’re not getting away that easily…” she yelled out…she then chased after me…I didn’t get very far…she soon caught up to me and tackled me to the ground…so hard I accidentally threw Seliky…a few feet ahead of me…
“Hehehe…time for you to die…” the Dridder yelled out…my eyes widen as she brought her head over to my neck…she then bit me I my neck…and I suddenly…felt…very…very tired…I looked up seeing Seliky slowly getting up…she was still dazed…I grabbed the Dridder’s neck and pushed her off of me with all my strength…I threw her off of me and picked myself up…I grabbed Seliky again and started moving again…
“Hehehe…there is no use on trying to get away…slowly my sleep venom will take control…” the Dridder called out as she picked herself up and came after me…slowly I felt my body go limp…I couldn’t hold myself up anymore and after a few seconds of moving…I fell back onto the ground…Seliky stumbling out of my hands on impact…everything started to go blurry as I slowly lifted my head…being in a familiar place…everything started to go blurry…as…I looked up at the Dridder slowly grew closer to me…just then…I saw a flash of green…knocking the Dridder away into a tree…I looked up…seeing a large green body…before blacking out…

A I can see is darkness…am I dead…did I fail to protect Seliky…this is bad…so very bad…then I heard a voice from about me…saying…”wake up”…over and over again…I realized I was sleeping and slowly opened my eyes…seeing a pair of green eyes belonging to a girl with freckles and greenish yellow hair…
”Well you finally decided to wake up…”




Part 35




I slowly lifted myself up and rubbed my head…I looked up to see the girl who was staring down at me…she had beautiful green eyes and long green yellow hair that was in a pony tail…she had a few freckles under her eyes and two long feelers on her head…I was shocked to see that her body from the waist down was green…she seems to be some sort of Dridder…wait…she cant be…she only has 4 legs…
“Well…I’m waiting…are you ok or not…” she said out…her voice a bit aggravated…
“Oh…um…I’m…I’m fine…” I mumbled…I couldn’t get my words out right…she smiled at me a bit and turned around…
“You’re lucky that I saw you being attacked by that Dridder…If I haven’t you would have been killed…” she said with a laugh…I gave a small smile…
“Th…thank you for…s…saving me…” I mumbled…she laughed and turned around…
“No prob um…” She stopped…
“Oh…I’m sorry…how rude of me…I’m Aurora…” I said out…
“Aurora eh?...well Aurora…I’m Hitomi…it’s nice to meet you…I’ve been wondering about you for a while…you’ve passed by my new home a few times recently…” she said out…I suddenly realized I was on top of a tree…then it all suddenly made sense…
“You were that creature that was in the tree…” I cried out…
“Uh…I guess…” She said back…I moved up to her…
“Why didn’t you say anything Hitomi…I thought you were some sort of creature that was going to eat me…” I cried out…she laughed and bopped me on the head with her hand…
“What ever scaly…just be grateful I came for your aid…” she said back…I nodded…
“Oh…ok…” I mumbled…I looked around my surroundings…and noticed something was missing here…wait a second…where is Seliky!?!...I looked around the tree branch to see if she was around…
“What are you looking for scaly…” she said out…
“My friend…Seliky!” I cried out…
“Seliky…I don’t know a Seliky…I only found you by yourself and my next two meals…” She sad back…pointing to a large cocoon looking thing hanging in the tree…inside seems to be something struggling…
“That’s the Dridder that attacked you…” she laughed…
“Two meals?…” I mumbled…
“Hehehe…yep…I found this human hiding in the bushes near by…she was a tasty little one…” she said happily…I looked down and saw a slight bulge in her stomach…my eyes widen…
“What did this human look like?...” I asked…she looked at me in confusion…
“Um…well…she had white hair…and pale skin…” she said back as she licked her lips…My eyes widen again…
“THAT’S SELIKY!!!” I cried out “SPIT HER OUT!!!” I the tackled her to the ground…
“Wagh!...I didn’t know!!!...” she yelled back as she pushed me off of her…she got up and wiped off the dirt on her arms…
“Hmpt…you should be happy I didn’t throw you off my tree for doing that…” she said out…
“SPIT…HER…OUT…NOW!!!...” I yelled…Hitomi gave me a cold stare…
“Fine fine fine…” she mumbled…she then started to push her stomach up…I could see a bulge slowly travel up her neck till it got to her mouth…I let out my hands and she spat out Seliky into my hands…little Seliky was covered in spit and stomach juices…some of her shirt was burnt off and Seliky had a terrified look on her face…
“Are…are you ok Seliky…” I asked as I brushed Seliky,s hair…se was shaking in my hands…
“So…so…so very…d…dark…” she mumbled…
“Well there is your little friend…well…I still have my other meal…” Hitomi said as she patted the struggling Dridder inside of the cocoon…I paid no attention…I was trying to calm down Seliky…she must be so terrified…
“Hehehe…she’s just being a little baby…” Hitomi said out as she walked over to me...her four legs clattered against the tree’s branch causing Seliky to quickly turn…
“N…no…stay away…” she cried out…
“Hehehe…the little human is afraid of me…that’s nice…” she said with an evil grin…
“Seliky…she’s not going to hurt you now…she saved me from the Dridder…” I said to Seliky…Hitomi laughed…
“Yeah I guess so…I prefer Dridder anyways…you would have token too much room…”
Seliky shrugged as she held onto me…she was still shaking…I held her against my breast and brushed her hair with my finger…
“Thank you for helping me out Hitomi…” I said to her…Hitomi chuckled…
“Any time Scaly…” she said out as she patted my shoulder…



(Thus this is the birth of the Mantoid...Hitomi being the first ever mantoid ^w^)

Now that Seliky brings up looking for a picture of Tahn, I am expecting a plot twist, though I could be wrong. I was expecting Jewlia to come, but I guess she'll be introduced later. Also, I thought that Hitomi's hair was braided, since she's usually drawn with a long french braid. Overall, pretty nice and I'm looking to see how Aurora copes with increasing stress and pressure.

Parts 36 - 40




Part 36





Seliky shook in my arms as I tried to comfort her…I cant really blame her to be like this…I mean Seliky was just eaten…she is probably still in a state of shock…I looked up at Hitomi who was leaning against the trunk of the tree…
“Is your little friends always like this…” Hitomi mumbled…
“She’s just shocked about you eating her…” I answered…Hitomi smiled and walked up to me…
“Well Aurora…why does your scaly butt live around these parts…this is really close to Dinner territory…” Hitomi said with a laugh…
“What do you mean Dinner Territory…” I said in confusion…
“Hehehe…to my kind…Dridders are a delicacy…” Hitomi laughed…as she laughed I could see her sharp fangs sticking out…and I guess Seliky could see them too because she clenched onto my chest harder…
“Oh…ok then…” I mumbled… Hitomi looked at me funny as she scratched her head…
“You sure don’t talk much…” Hitomi said to me…I looked away…I know that I’m a very shy person…It is very hard for me to talk to new people…Hitomi cracked her knuckles and moved to the other side of the tree…
“Hmmm…a quiet type eh…well…you still haven’t really answered my question…what is a naga like you doing in Dinner…I…I mean Dridder territory…I looked up quickly…
“Oh…I’m sorry…I lived in this area for 39 years…” I answered….Hitomi rubbed her chin and smiled a bit…
“Hmmm…quite brave of you…knowing Dridders absolutely hate Naga’s…I like that…” She said back with a grin…I blushed a bit…
“Uh…yeah…” I mumbled…
“And what’s with the human…is she like your pet or something…” She asked as she lowered her head right towards Seliky’s face…Seliky gasped and held onto me even tighter…
“No…she’s my friends…” I told her…
“Are you sure…I mean…she looks more like an appetizer to me…” Hitomi said back…Seliky gave a short scream…
“Hitomi…I’m serious…stop scaring her…” I cried out…
“I’m only kidding…sheesh…” she said with a laugh…she looked Seliky from my arms and Seliky started screaming…
“There is no need to scream shorty…I’m not going to hurt you…” Hitomi said with a softer voice…Seliky stopped screaming and looked up at Hitomi…
“Yeah…I’m just going to eat ya…” Hitomi said evilly…Seliky’s eyes widen and she started squirming in Hitomi’s hands…
“Hahaha…that is never going to get old…” She laughed…I took Seliky from her and cuddled her into my arms…
“…Shhh…shhh…its ok Seliky….you’re ok…calm down little one…” I said to Seliky trying to confort her…Seliky was shaking in my arms with her eyes tightly closed…
“Hitomi!...quit being mean to Seliky…you really have her scared…” I cried out…Hitomi calmed herself down and leaned against the tree’s trunk…she pressed her claws against the tree and scratched it…as if she was sharpening her nails…
“Hehehe…Ok…I’ll stop for today scaly…” Hitomi laughed…as she was leaning against the tree…II sort of…well…examined her a bit…her lower body was green and she had 4 legs…which was weird…because Dridders have 6 legs and a black body…plus blue or purple skin…but Hitomi has normal colored skin…this proves my theory of her being an alternate race of Dridder wrong…
“Hey Hitomi…just to ask…what are you?…I mean…I never seen anything that looks like you before…” I mumbled…Hitomi looked at me funny and gave a sigh…
“Hehehe…I don’t blame you…we Mantoids are very Rare…” she said back…
“Mantoids?...” Me and Seliky both said in confusion…
“Hehehe…pretty much Mantis Girls…our there aren’t very many of our kind due to there aren’t any many males left…for obviouse reasons…” Hitomi said with a chuckle…
“Why are there not many males…” I asked…Hitomi was about to answer but Seliky butted in…
“Female Pray Mantis’ eat the males head after mating…” she mumbled…Hitomi looked at her and smiled…
“50 points for you…she’s right…we eat our partners so we have enough nutrients to lay the many eggs afterwards…hehehe…they’re tasty…” Hitomi laughed…
“But…that doesn’t make sense…if you Mantoids give birth to Male Mantoids…how is your kind still going on if you eat them…” Seliky asked…
“eh...i dont know about this population mumbo jumbo and personally I dont really care at all about it...; she replied…Seliky looked down at the floor…I wasn’t really paying attention to the conversation…I was too focused on what Hitomi saying “they’re tasty…” but then it suddenly hit me…
“Hitomi!...You’re pregnant!!!” I cried out…Hitomi gave me a cold stare…
“No…” she mumbled… “I already laid the eggs…”




Part 37





“You already had the eggs…” I cried out…Hitomi looked at me in confusion.
“It is no big deal…it has 50 of them…” Hitomi replied. I nearly fell back from hearing her response.
“…50 Babies!!!...” I cried out…I was so shocked that she is going to have that many children…
“I’ll show you and the tasty one…” she laughed… Little Seliky began to wiggle in my arms…Hitomi kept on scaring the poor child…I rubbed Seliky’s back with my finger trying to get her to calm down as I fallowed Hitomi across the tree trunk… eventually we reached this large branch with this large web like ball on it…Hitomi patted the big ball with a smile…
“Here they are…my little nestlings…inside this egg sack are 50 little eggs…each having an individually Mantoid baby…” Hitomi said out…I slithered over to the large sack and took a closer look at it…Seliky seemed to be interested sense she wasn’t shaking as much anymore…
“I can imagine her as a mother figure…” Seliky whispered to me…Hitomi must have over heard her and snatched her from my arms…
“Oh you don’t say…try repeating that inside my stomach!!!” She said with an annoying tone…she tossed terrified Seliky into the air and caught her with her mouth…the only thing I could see was Seliky’s legs kicking outside of Hitomi's drooling mouth…I immediately grabbed Seliky’s legs and yanked her out of her mouth…pressing terrified Seliky against my breast as I glared at Hitomi…
“Please don’t do that!...” I cried out…Seliky was now even more pale then she was before…she seemed to be paralyzed with fear…Hitomi was laughing really hard…
“Hahaha…coward…” she said out…she then walked up to me and placed her hand on my shoulder…
“Just couldn’t resist it…sorry Aurora…” she managed to say…still giggling…I sighed…
“It’s ok…how long do you plan on staying here Hitomi?” I asked…
“Well…at least till my offspring hatch…which would be in a few months…” Hitomi replied as she examined her egg sack...as she did that I started to think…maybe having Hitomi around would be good…I mean…she said she likes eating Dridders…maybe that’ll make the Dridders leave me alone…clearly this Mantis girl can take out a Dridder…seeing that she rescued me…just I don’t know if Seliky could deal with having her around…sure I could…but Hitomi and Seliky did really have a good start…I looked down at Seliky who was still trembling…poor girl…after what she has gone through…I’m surprised she hasn’t fainted yet…I sure would have…Hitomi turned around and smiled at me…
“So how long do you plan on taking up space on my tree…” she laughed…
“Oh I’m sorry…I would get off but…I can really clime very well…my body is set for dirt…not trees…” I replied…she started laughing again…
“What kind of scale butt doesn’t know how to clime…you are certainly a very weird Naga…” she said out…I gave fake smile…
“Well how about this…I’ll show you an easy way for you to get down…” she said give a faint snicker…
“Really…how?...” I said back…she walked p to me and suddenly pushed me causing me to loose balance and come tumbling off the tree landing on my back…
“There ya go…see…wasn’t that fast…” I heard from above me…Seliky looked very dizzy now…luckily I fell on my back and not on my stomach…crushing her…I slowly lifted myself up and wiped off the dirt on my arms…
“That wasn’t very nice Hitomi…” I mumbled. Hitomi jumped off the tree and landed right next to me…
“Well I was certainly not going to carry you down…” she replied as she bopped my head with her hand…
“Where do you live scaly…maybe I’ll go see you some time…maybe bring a couple of meals from time to time…” She added…
“Oh um…I live south of here…uh…near the foot of the mountain…there is this huge boulder that covers my home so you’ll find it pretty easily…’ I replied…Hitomi grabbed onto her tree again and started to clime back up…
“Cool…I’ll see you later kay scaly?…” she said as she disappeared into the canopy of the trees…I looked down at Seliky who looked relieved…
“I’m glad that is over…she was very mean to me…” Seliky mumbled…
“I’m sure she was just playing with you…but she is a little odd…” I replied as I began to slither away…I need to start setting something around my home to warn me if something is near…but just what…


A few hours later…I laid in my main chamber listen to the new stories that she was telling me about…like how at like 4 AM she saw a bright thing falling from the sky fallowed by a loud crash…she asked me what did I think it was but I had no idea…then she told me about her day at Ti-yens library and told me some of the stuff she learned in class called…geometry…just sounded like a bunch of bumcus to me but Seliky seemed to know what she was talking about…so I just smiled and nodded the entire time…pretending that I had a clue what she was talking about…for the rest of the day Seliky spent in that chamber working on that box looking thing that she refused to show me…there were a few explosions too…but every time I went to check on her…she just said “Oh nothing is wrong…just a faulty wire…” which I still don’t understand…I’ll never get used to this human stuff…I just laid in my chamber thinking about all the things that have happened ever sense I met Seliky…I started to do things that I would have never done before…I mean…I was brave enough to fight that Dridder and that huge blob thing all by myself…I would have just hid…and I was able to actually speak to Hitomi…I bet if I haven’t met Seliky…only mush would have came out of my mouth…I guess I changed ever sense I met Seliky…I lifted myself up to go check on Seliky…It’s getting dark too…just hope Seliky hasn’t blew herself up…I would want to have to pick up hundreds of little Seliky parts…actually I think I would just faint if that happened…better just think of the best of everything…I entered the chamber and saw Seliky turning around…she had a big grin on her face…
“Oh right on time Aurora…I finally finished my project…” she said happily…
“Really…that’s great…” I said back…Seliky step to the side so I can see what she was making…it looked weird…like a small rectangle thing with many little in it…next to it was a small bag that looked like it was full of something…
“Uh…what is it…” I asked…
“I call it…the Plasma Launcher!!!.” she said happily…




Part 38




“Plasma…launcher?...” I said in confusion…
“I created this device that fires these small cans filled with heated compressed air…you see…there are 4 states of matter…solid, liquid, gas and plasma…which each can be converted into the other by either heat or freezing…well…the cans are so heated that the particles in the air start moving quicker causing them to run into each other…when they collide they create a spark…the sparks are so consecutive that it generates electricity called plasma…” Seliky explained…it all just sounded like gibberish to me…but I nodded…trying not to make her feel bad…
“Hehehe…well…knowing that…I decided to make this baby…though…I need to actually make the little plasma cans first…you see…this baby launches them into the air and they seek out their target…without those…well…this little baby is pretty much useless…” Seliky added…
“Oh I see…” I didn’t really…just trying not to have Seliky make fun of me with my lack of science knowledge…I picked Seliky up and hugged her a bit…
“Awww you are soooo smart Seliky…” I said out…
“Aurora…you’re…squeezing me…” I then noticed Seliky’s face blue and released my grip…
“Ah that’s better…” she said as she took deep breaths…I looked at Seliky’s face again…she suddenly looked all worried…which concerned me…
“What’s wrong little Seliky…you look tense…” I asked…
“Seliky…I…have a bad feeling in the pit of my gut all of a sudden…” Seliky mumbled…I looked at her again…she was really pain and her hair was sticking up a bit…I then suddenly felt the same source of fear that she had…everything suddenly felt all cold to me…
“I…feel it too…” I mumbled…I held Seliky against my breast as I slowly headed out of my chamber…
“Aurora…I’m scared…” Seliky cried out…
“It’s probably nothing…maybe you are just scared that Hitomi is now around…” I laughed…
“No…my fear for her is nothing compared to this…” Seliky whimpered…I had to admit…I was very scared too…it is almost the same amount of fear as when we met up with tha…………oh god…
“Seliky…we got to get out of here…and fast!...” I cried out…
“What…why!?!” Seliky replied…
“That…thing is coming back!!!” I cried out as I headed as fast as I could to the exit of my den…
“You…you can’t mean the…” Seliky went suddenly went silent…right in front of me was a terrifying sight…it was…the blob creature…right outside my den…but…this time it looked…weird…it was now slightly purple and it had a tail looking thing on the back of it…it slowly came towards me…and…I heard the cries within it…it was terrifying…I couldn’t move because of it…I felt Seliky trembling in y arms…she felt very cold too…I wanted to scream and start running but…I felt frozen solid…I cant fight this thing again…it…almost killed me…and…Seliky…I cant face it…I’ll die for sure…I have to get away from it…at least till I bring Seliky to safety…then I can lure it way from her… The blob slowly crept closer to me dragging it’s new brownish tail behind it…as I stared at it in fear…I saw in the corner of my eye an opening…I quickly lunged myself in that direction…forcing Seliky to hand onto my arms…I heard it roar but I didn’t look back…I kept of slithering as fast as I could away from it…crashing through brushes and small tree’s that were unlucky enough to be in my path…As I moved…I suddenly saw all the plants ahead of me began to start turning brown…they started to die…I suddenly knew why and immediately stopped…I fell forward and my face fell flat onto the dead grass…I was lucky enough not to have accidentally squished Seliky…I raised my head a bit seeing a large gooey surface rising from the ground right in front of me…inches away from my face…I then suddenly felt this burning sensation in my arm…I then realized my arm was inside the creatures gooey body…I immediately pulled it out and threw myself up and continue to move as fast as I could…I looked up seeing the creature sinking into the ground to ambush me again…
“Aurora…this thing keeps on catching to us…what are we going to do!!!” Seliky cried out…
“We can’t lead it to Hitomi…it’ll kill her eggs…we have to get it away from this place…I got to find a safe place for you…” I said back…
“NO!!! I’m not leaving you!!! You’re my best friend!!!” Seliky yelled…before I could say anything I felt something rap around my waist and pull me to the ground…I looked back see a large tentacle sticking out of the ground…slowly the large gooey body rose from the ground as it dragged me closer to it…
“Go…run Seliky…You can still get away…you can go get Hitomi to help!!!” I cried out…but…Seliky seemed to be frozen with fear…I couldn’t get to her…I looked back at the blob thing…trying to find out a way to get away from it’s grip…I remembered what happened when I hit that organic looking orb…it looked like it really got hurt…but I was sent into the air…I need to get away…I quickly rose my tail and swiped it into the center of the blobs body…feeling this incredible burning in my tail…I stuck the orb and I was then shot up into the air by a force released from the blobs body and I rammed into a tree…the blobs body suddenly looked less stable and was filled with bumps as it roared and moved wildly around the area…my body now felt a lot of pain…I managed to lift myself up to get away from it…but when I turned to escape…I ran into this spiny looking root from the ground…I felt many little needles pierce into my skin causing me allot of pain and I fell back onto the ground…I then suddenly felt all sleepy…I saw Seliky on top of me trying to snap me out of my daze…
“Aurora…Aurora get up!...” she said…her voice seemed faint to me and sounded a little like a echo…I turned my head seeing the blob creature reached it’s senses and was heading to me again…I wanted to move…but…I…felt…sleepy…my eyes were closing…but…I noticed…some…roots shooting at the blob…before…blacking out………




Part 39




Am I dead...It's so...dark...pitch back...did...that blob thing kill me...Is this how being dead feels like...

As I weeped in my thoughts...I heared a voice...a female voice...but it wasnt Seliky...sounds older...it was telling me to wake up...I slowly opened my eyes only to be blinded by the bright rays of the sun.
"Oh...good you are awake..." I voice rang from out of nowhere. I quickly lifted myself up, looking for the voice. I was in an open area sorrounded by tree's...but...covering the area was hundreds of spiny looking roots peeking out of the ground...some making arcs larger than myself...I couldnt find anyone and I began to think I was hearing things...
"You look puzzled..." The voice rang again...I quickly turned around, only seeing a large spiny tree...I'm very confused now...
"Up here..." the voice added...I looked up...nearly falling back with amazment...the large spiny tree was acually a giant girl...so much larger than me...She was a tree from waist down and she was covered in many thorns...her hair was leaves too...and it ran down her back till it reached her tree half...her eyes were as green as newly grown leaves...
"Who...who are you..." I said out...
"Oh I'm sorry...I guess...I'm being very rude in not introducing myself...I'm Jewlia the Dryad...It's nice to finally meet a naga...funny...I figured Nagas' were a bit...larger..." she said back...to her I was SMALL...I was propably the equilvalent to her a slightly larger Tabie to me as a child...
"Oh...um...uh...I'm Aurora...uh..." I studdered...
"Well hello Aurora...you are probably wonder what is going on...arent you dear?..." She said back to me...her voice was very soft and had a very kind ring to it...she spoke beautifully too...
"Oh...yes...yes I am...what...what happened..." I asked...Jewlia put her hands behind her back...she seemed very shy torwards me...she closed her eyes before looking at me again...
"...Well...I was...well...um...sleeping when I awoke with a loud roar from afar...I used my roots to scope out the source and found you in distress...I'm sorry...I kinda accidently put my root infront of you and...well...you ran into it...and well...my thorns have sleep toxins in them...and well...you were imediantly subdued...I couldnt let you die from that nasty goo creature and I attacked it with my roots..." Jewia exsplained...I looked up at her gentle eyes...
"You beat it?..." I asked...she looked away...
"...Well...no...take a look over there..." she said back...I looked to the area she was pointing at and saw many shrivled up brown roots covered in some blue goo...
"Well...it really hurt me...but I did manage to break of that liquidy tail it had...and make it run away...weird though...it sucked some sort of DNA and RNA samples from one of my roots before retreating..." Jewlia mumbled...
"Oh...I'm sorry for bringing you pain..." I said back...
"No dont be sorry...you needed help...helping the hurt is what I do..." She said back...just then I realized my body wasnt hurting...where my tail and my arm was burned...there was nothing...not even a scratch...
"What...how..." I cried out...Jewlia started giggling...
"...some other creatures here call me the "Nurse of Felarya"...anyone or anything injured in my area I find...I bring them back to here to raise back to health...funny thing really...hasnt really helped my social skills..." Jewlia replied...I was amazed by this...This girl is kind enough to take care of the hurt...
"Do...um...take anything in return...I...dont have anything with me..." I mumbled...
"Oh no no no no...I work for free..." She said back...she lead torwards me and my eyes widden...her thorns were going to inpale me again...but before she reached me...they all suddenly disapeared...she patted me on the back an then went back to her up-wright possition.
"...Well...um...if you want...you can...um...leave if you like...I mean well...you are all fixed up now young Aurora and...um...I dont want to bore you..." She said shyly...I smiled a bit...
"It's all fine..." I replied...I just then suddenly heard a tiny voice...
"HEY AURORA!!!" I imediantl reconized it...It was Seliky...but I didnt see her anywhere...
"Seliky?...Seliky where are you?..." I said out...Jewlia giggled a bit...
"Oh yeah...your human friend..." Jewlia laughed...ontop of her head I saw a little white spec waving at me...
"This is such an amazing veiw..." Seliky cried out...
"For some reason she wanted to play in my hair..." Jewlia giggled. "She's such a little bundle of joy isnt she?..."




Part 40




Jewlia reached into her hair and gently picked Seliky up and let her down right in front of me…I leaned down so that she was near my face and she smiled happily as she hugged my arm…
“Aurora!...I’m so glad you are ok!...” She cried out happily…I giggled a bit as I lifted her up…
“I’m so glad you are ok too…” I said back…
“Yeah…Jewlia took really good care of me…she took care of you too…she’s cool like that…” Seliky laughed…I smiled and looked up at Jewlia…
“Thank you Jewlia…Thank you so much for looking after Seliky without eating her…the last person we met thought she was food and well…you know…” I said to her…
“Hey it’s no problem at all…she was really good company and she was fun to talk to…” she said back to me with a small smile…she then looked away and sighed…
“…I was just being myself…at least you said thank you…not many people say thinks to me…for some odd reason…” Jewlia mumbled…I lifted myself up and slithered over to her…I lifted myself as high as I could with my tail so I can at least reach up to her chest. I then gave her a small hug…I saw Jewlia have froze and her hair suddenly turned all red…
“You shouldn’t have done that Aurora…” Seliky giggled as she took a few steps back…
“Why?...” I asked…suddenly I felt two arms wrap around me and pressed me against her…
“HUGS!!!” Jewlia squealed out like a little girl…
“ACK…To tight…” I gasped for air…Jewlia was too strong and was crushing me…
“I love hugs!...no one has hugged me is a LONG time…” Jewlia said happily as she shook me a she shook me a bit…
“…ack…you are…squeezing…me…too…hard…” I gasped…Jewlia finally released me and I fell to the floor taking deep breaths…I never felt so happy to breathe…
“I’m sorry…I have a bit of a…thing for hugs…” Jewlia said with an embarrassed expression…I smiled a bit and lifted myself from the floor…
“…Well I can see that now…” I laughed…Seliky walked over to me and climbed up my tail…
“She did that to me…almost snapped me in two…” Seliky laughed…”But she’s still very cool..”
“Awww…thank you very much…hey…Are you guys hungry?...” Jewlia asked us…I looked over to Seliky and she nodded…
“Yeah…just a little…” I told to Jewlia “I don’t want to be much of a burden to you…”
“It’s no problem…jus hold on a sec…” Jewlia said back…she closed her eyes for a bit…suddenly we heard screams of terror from very far away…Seliky nearly jumped off my tail with surprise…then two of Jewlia’s roots came out of the ground wrapped around two sleeping humans…
“Here you go…” Jewlia giggled as she plucked one of the humans from her root and handed him to me…I took the human and noticed that he was sleeping…
“Sorry about that…my thorns have a sleeping poison in them…” Jewlia said with a sigh as she stuffed her human into her mouth and swallowed the sleeping man…I looked at Seliky who was all green…
“Pardon me…” Seliky said in a quiet voice…she slid down my tail and ran over to a bush where she threw up…
“Oh my…I’m sorry…” Jewlia said out…while Seliky was distracted I took the time to stuff my human into my mouth and swallow…though it was hard because it was a larger human…I finally got him down and slithered over to Seliky…
“I’m never going to get used to this…” Seliky said as she wiped her mouth…
“I’m sorry…here…I’ll make it up to you…” Jewlia said as she plucked a berry from her hair…I lifted Seliky up and a slithered over to Jewlia…Jewlia handed Seliky the berry and Seliky smiled…
“Thanks Jewlia…but…this thing is the size of my head…” Seliky said as she looked at the large red berry…she started to eat it…but she only made it halfway done before she was full…I giggled a bit seeing her face red with berry juice…at least her hair isn’t while anymore…
“Ugh…I cant eat any more…” Seliky said as she dropped the rest of the berry…”It was very tasty though…”
“Thank you little Seliky…” Jewlia replied…
“Hey I’m not little…I just have a height deficiency…” Seliky mumbled as she folded her arms…both me and Jewlia giggled…
“Yeah sure you do…” I laughed…our laughter was suddenly ended by a loud rustling of bushed from afar…
“What was that!?!” Seliky cried out…
“I don’t know…” Jewlia said out… Just then and body fell down from the tree and crashed onto the floor…
“Oh my!...” Jewlia cried out…
“Aurora doesn’t look…there’s blood…” Seliky cried out…I turned away quickly…
“Seliky go check it out…” I said as I lowered Seliky to the floor…Seliky ran over to where the figure was…
“OH MY!!!...It’s Hitomi!!!”

Aurora's story Part 41-45




Part 41





I nearly jumped up hearing what Seliky just said...Hitomi is hurt...I slithered over seeing Hitomi's eyes tightly closed and she turned as if she was in great pain...I started to feel...very...dizzy...I saw blood so I quickly turned away before anything happened...This is horribled...
"Hitomi!...what happened!..." I cried out...Hitomi opened her eyes a bit...she growned in pain and spat up some blood...
"My...e...it...attacked...my...eggs..." Hitomi faintly said...her voice sounded if she was being choked...
"What did!..." Seliky cried out...
"This...blue....bubble...creature..." Hitomi gasped...I nearly fell back...the blob creature must had attacked Hitomi...but...why?...
"Damn it...only...if I...was bigger..." Hitomi said...I saw a tear run down her eye...seeing this...I knew somthing went wrong...
"Hitomi...tell me...the eggs are safe...right!?!" I said out...Hitomi wiped the tear away...
"That...DAMN thing...got one of them..." Hitomi said out...right then...it felt as if my soul drifted away...Hitomi just lost a child...Hitomi must be going through alot of pain...but physical and emotional...I turned to Jewlia...
"Jewlia...please tell me you can help her..." I said out...Jewlia nodded...
"I'll take a glander at her..." Jewlia said out...I suddenly heard Seliky gasp...I turned and saw Hitomi slowly getting up...
"I dont need...ack...any help Damn it...I'm fine by myself..." she said painfully...I couldnt believe my ears...she's actually refusing help...
"Hitomi...please...you look horrible..." I said out...Hitomi glared at me...
"I'm going yo find that Damn creature and Oh...I'll bring hell straight to it for taking away my unborn daughter!!!" Hitomi said out...
"Enough of that..." Jewlia sighed...right the, roots shot up from under Hitomi and the thorns pricked her...the Hitomi colaps onto the floor...
"Jewlia...what did you do that for!?!..." Seliky cried out...I guess Seliky thought Jewlia attacked her...
"Relax little Seliky...I only have put her to sleep...no harm done..." Jewlia said out...I looked down at Hitomi's injured self...she had burns all over her body...most of which were around her arms...I then notised this little red bruis near her mantis half...it was similar to the one I had when I fought that blob creature for the first time...
"Why would that scary blob thing hurt Hitomi?..." Seliky asked as I notised the sense of fear in her...I was wondering that too...am I not the only victum to this strange creatures attacks...why is it attacking us anyways...I very scared now...maybe it'll come attack Jewlia too...I dont want Jewlia hurt...she's very nice and I dont want to put a person I just met in danger...hardly seems right...I looked over to Seliky who was quivering is fear...I picked her up and hugged her gently...
"Dont worry...everything is going to be fine..." I told her...actually...I dont know what is going to happen...but I really need to get little Seliky calm...a girl her age can only take so much Drama...I looked up at Jewlia...
"Jewlia...can you help Hitomi...please..." I asked...Jewlia gave a tiny smile...
"It's what I do...anything for my friends..." Jewlia said back...I saw some roots lift Hitomi's sleeping body to Jewlia where Jewlia removed some of the berries in her hair and mashed them up in her hands...she then rubbed the liquidfide fruit on Hitomi's wounds...which confused me...
"My berries serve as a medicen for all Felarya diseases and help make wounds heal...if you two are wondering..." Jewlia said out...It made sense...and I saw that Seliky was interested...well now I know Hitomi is in good hands...It'll make my worries for her lesson just a tiny bit...




Part 42




I laid on the floor, worried about Hitomi…I know Jewlia is going to take good care of her…but I’m worried Hitomi emotional part of herself…I mean…Hitomi seems to be a…well…unique girl…but...what will happen sense she just lost a child…I sighed as I looked over at little Seliky who was laying on my stomach…she seemed a bit more relaxed than I am…but I could tell she was a little worried…she looked up at me with those pink eyes of hers…she seemed to be even more afraid of the blob creature and what it did to Hitomi…she trembled a bit before snapping to her senses…suddenly something snapped into my head…
“Seliky…you didn’t go back to your father last night!...” I cried out…Seliky looked at me in confusion…
“Oh yeah…I didn’t haven’t I…” Seliky said back as she scratched her head…now I grew very scared…Seliky’s father could have people out looking for her…and I could be caught…this is not good…
“Seliky…your father must be looking for you!...” I cried out…Seliky looked at me a smiled…
“Dude…its Thursday…my father is at the military thing till Saturday…remember?…” Seliky laughed…now I feel like a complete idiot…Seliky’s father doesn’t come back to Seliky’s house till Saturday afternoon…like always…
“Oh…I guess I forgot…hehehe…” I mumbled as I held my neck…Seliky looked away at Jewlia who was rubbing mashed up berries onto Hitomi’s wounds…
“…Is this torment ever going to end?…” Seliky asked with a scared look on her face…her skin was paler than normal and she shivered a bit…I didn’t know what to say to her…I didn’t know what this blob creature was…and why it wanted us…
“Don’t worry Seliky…” I said as I grabbed her and hugged her…”we’ll be fine…I won’t let that creature hurt you…Hitomi…or Jewlia…never…” I said to her…Seliky began to cry…
“I don’t want you hurt either…I don’t want you to end up like Hitomi…” Seliky said as she laid her head on my arm…I stroke her hand with my finger…trying to calm her down…all of these events were driving this girl mad…she must be having hard time taking in all of this stuff…
“I’ll be fine Seliky…I promise…” I whispered… Jewlia looked at me and I saw hr eyes sparkle…
“AWWWW…that’s so cute!...” Jewlia said out happily…Seliky looked up at me with a tiny blush…
“I wish I had a relationship like that…” Jewlia added as she placed Hitomi on the ground…Hitomi’s wounds seem to have been slowly disappearing…Hitomi shrugged in her sleep as the medicine healed her injuries…
“Don’t worry about her…she’ll be all better by sun up…I’ll take care of her till then ok Aurora…” Jewlia said as she brushed her hand against her leafy hair…I slithered over to Jewlia and hugged the base of her trunk…
“Thank you so much for this again Jewlia…I’m so grateful…” I said out happily…I saw Seliky taking some steps back…I then remembered Jewlia’s…”problem”…she suddenly grabbed be in her arm and squeezed me very hard…
“HUG!!!” She called out happily and she swung me side to side like how I did to Tabie when I was tiny…
“Ack…Jewlia…yo…you’re doing it again!...” I cried out…Jewlia released me and I gasped for air…Jewlia calmed herself down and blushed…
“…I’m sorry…it’s a habit I’m afraid…” Jewlia said softly…her voice was so filled with purity and it filled me with warmth…I couldn’t help but smile…even through the recent events…
“It’s ok…I understand Jewlia…” I said and smiled…Jewlia patted my head and pocked Seliky in the stomach playfully…Seliky fell back and giggled a bit…
“Hehehe…Aurora we should stay here with Jewlia…you know…to keep her company and it would be a lot safer...you know…with that blob out there…” Seliky told me…I looked at her and then I looked at Jewlia…I thought about it for a second…but then…I have my home…and it would be a long slither from here to my traps…and the main human path is too far…but again…Jewlia is good in treating injuries…Jewlia looked at me and gave a beautiful smile filled with joy…
“That would be very wonderful…but…I wouldn’t want you to leave your home because of me…it doesn’t seem at that right…” Jewlia said to us…then her face suddenly filled with sorrow…she turned away and sighed as she closed her large green eyes…
“It’s the best for you…” she then mumbled… I knew she wanted us to say…I mean…she said no one ever visits her…or…keeps her company…but she was right…we cant leave my home…hmmm…
“Does your roots take up all of this area?...I asked softly…Jewlia looked at me in confusion…
“No…there are some empty spots…why?...” she asked as she scratched her nose…
“Well…I was thinking…maybe I can make a tunnel leading from my burrow to you so I can visit you…” I suggested…Seliky looked up at me and smiled…
“That’s a great idea Aurora…what do you say Jewlia…” she said out…Jewlia nodded and smile…
“That’ll be very nice…” she said as the sun reflected off of her beautiful green eyes…
“Alright…I’ll get started…I’ll start today…” I said…Seliky looked at me with a sad expression on her face…I smiled…
“Ok ok…you can stay with Jewlia until I finish…” I said to her…Seliky jumped up with joy and hoped over to Jewlia’s waiting hand…
“Don’t worry Aurora…I’ll take very good care of her…I promise” Jewlia said to me as she brought Seliky to her cheek and smiled…I giggled…
“Ok Jewlia…see you guys in an hour or two…” I called out as I headed towards the direction of my home…




Part 43




It was very quiet on the way back home...inspecially not having little Seliky around to keep me company...I sighed to myself as I continued to slither along the forest floor...thinking about last night...that horrible feeling I had when I stared at death in the face...I'm lucky to even be alive...I shook my head a bit...trying to get the memory out of my head...I looked ahead seeing the enterance to by burrow...before entering...I looked around a bit...listening to the akward silence through the day...I closed my eyes for a second as I took a deep breath before slithering into my home...while making why way through the chambur...I noticed little purple specks floating in the air...but they were so tiny...I first didnt noticed them...but I adventually did halfway through my home...I didnt really put much thought into it...I continued on my way to the spot where I would start my dig to Jewlia's territory...just before I was about to enter...somthing purple caught my eye...I turned and saw a faint purple light in one of my chamburs...I slithered slowly to the enterance...afraid that it was some sort of preditor...I peered inside...only to see a tiny mushroom glowing in the corner of the chambur...I slithered to it...smiling at the fact that I thought such a cute little fungi could be a big old predator sleeping in my house...I leaned torwards it and smiled...but somthing weird happened...a little puff shot out from it to my nose...it smelled funny and it tickled my nose...I sneezed and looked back at the purple mushroom...I must have allergies from it...I'll have to bury this chambur then...when I have the chance of course...I slithered out of the chambur to where I was going to start digging the tunnel...I retracted the scales in my arms and slammed my arms into the dirt...pushing aside the ground that was in my way...I did this while slithering forward...creating the tunnel by doing so...
After an hour of digging...I decided to take a short break...I laid with my belly on the ground...feeling the nice cold dirt throughout my body...I closed my eyes for a bit as I enjoyed this rare moment of peace I had to myself...I laid their for a while trying to enjoy the moment...only to have been interuppted by a faint vibration...I turned myself around and closed my green eye to see through the dirt with my purple eye...I saw the body heat of a human walking just above me...I felt like just leaving the human alone...but that thought ended as soon as I heard my belly growling at me...saying that my previus meal was gone and my belly is still hungry...I smiled as I focused at the human...I waited untile they walked within striking range of me and I readied my arm...right when they were...I shot my arm up...breaking through the layer of earth and I grabbed the shooken human...I pulled my arm back to see my catch...it was a human male...looking about 20 years of age I think...he was struggling in my hand...I'm guessing scared at seeing me...the hole I made made a ray of light peek in...showing myself to him...I opened my mouth and dangled him about it for a second...then I plopped him into my mouth and began to lick at his body...to make him wet so he'll go down into my belly faster...He kept on fighting and kicking my nose which was still outside of my mouth...I grew annoyed so I just began to swallow...He got pushed in my throat a bit and I had to swallow again...he was squirming around inside my throat...it was very difficult to swallow him...but I finally took another gulp...bring his body to maybe where my callorbone is...I sawallowed again...finally plopping him into my waiting belly...I laid down on my back and patted my slighty buldged belly in satifaction...the little human began struggling inside of me...it kind of tickled...I couldnt help but giggle a little...feeling tickles from inside me always make me happy...happy with my full belly...I continued an my way to meet up with Jewlia and Seliky...I bet they are having quite the time together...I cant wait to see Seliky's happy face again...it always cheers me up...I also hope Hitomi gets better...poor women...she must be having a hard time in her sleep...I sure hope she'll heal...I know Jewlia said she will...but I dont think her mind would heal...I mean...she just lost a unborn daughter...I would be devistated if that ever happened to me...I hope she'll feel better...

…I continued on digging the tunnel that led over to Jewlia…I had to make up from that short break I had earlier…though it’s kind of weird that I can still feel that little human inside me…but he isn’t moving around very much…but every so often I would feel him move around or struggle a bit…tickling me from the inside…I guess my belly is having an off day today…but I still like the feeling of the little human…keeps me less bored sense I never know when he going to……hehehehe…do that…hehehe…I rubbed my belly as I continued on…though I stopped for a bit…I looked up using my purple eye to see through the ground…I saw a blank open field…remembering that is was the area where I thought would make a good lookout spot…so I decided to make a quick detour to the surface…just to make the tunnel so I can reach this area when ever I wanted…it was good to have open air again and feeling the gentle breeze blowing against my tense body…my arms felt a little sore and stiff…it is best that I stretch them so they wont get messed up or something…I looked around the peaceful field as I stretched my arms…it was very nice out here with the bright green grass and the open sky…I saw the little berry bush that had Seliky’s favorite treat growing on them…I slithered over to it and carefully picked a few of the berries…making sure I didn’t accidentally crush the bush or burst the tiny berries between my fingers…after picking a handful in Seliky’s standards…I turned to head back into the tunnel…but something caught my eye high up in the sky…I looked up seeing this large creature flying in the sky…though…it looked similar to a human female…only…bigger and had wings and feathers…she turned her head and saw me…my scales stood up as I stared up at the bird lady…I was scared that she would come attack me…though…I then noticed that she just continued to fly forward as if she had no interest in me…I took no chances though and slithered as fast as I could into the safety of my tunnel…I laid back against the tunnel wall as I breathed in deeply…that was really a scare…I have never seen such a creature…and I don’t know what would happen if it decided I would be her next meal…*sigh*…good thing she didn’t…I turned to continue digging…but before I went to…I gently placed the berries on my tail so they wouldn’t be smashed up…I tried to forget about the scene that happened recently…though I was relieved that the little human decided to do another struggle and tickle me some more…it sure helped calm me down to the point were I felt conferrable…

An hour passed by and I knew that I was almost to Jewlia…out in the distance I could see her body heat from my purple eye…I smiled as I hurried on to see them again…my arms felt a little stiff but I paid no mind to it…if I did it would only hold me back…I reached the area and dug my way up to the surface…popping my head out of the ground…
“I’m back!...” I called out as I looked up seeing Jewlia…
“Oh Aurora you’re back…” Jewlia said as she smiled with such beauty and grace…I smiled back as I looked around the area…
“Hey where’s Seliky?...” I asked…Jewlia began to giggle a bit…
“I’m up here!...” a tiny voiced called out from above me…I just then realize that Seliky was on top of my head…
“Hey Seliky…what are you doing up there?...” I asked…
“Yeah…well I was just here minding my own business when suddenly a 45 foot long scale butt broke through the floor underneath me…
“Oh…I’m so sorry…I didn’t see you!...” I cried out as I lifted Seliky off my head and held her in front of my face…
“Hey it’s ok…I’m not hurt anything…just was a little bit shocked…” Seliky said with a tiny giggled…I placed Seliky on my shoulder and lifted myself out of the ground…
“Ok good…I was a little worried that I may have gotten you hurt…” I mumbled…
“Hey…even if you did…we have Jewlia here…” Seliky laughed…Jewlia blushed a bit and giggled a bit…
“Did you two have fun?...” I asked as I slithered over to Jewlia…Jewlia smiled ash the sun reflected against her beautiful emerald green eyes…a dazzling sight…
“We sure did…Seliky is just a bundle of joy and has so many interesting stories…a lot about you also…” Jewlia said giggling…I giggled a bit too as I looked over to Seliky…
“Yeah I absolutely love Jewlia…she’s so fun and nice and stuff…but very hard to play hide and seek with…if I even move an inch she finds me…her and her Dryad senses…or what ever she uses…” Seliky said out…
“Well that is a secret us Bramble Dryads keep…” Jewlia said out…
“Well that’s no fun…” Seliky mumbled as she folded her arms…
“How’s Hitomi doing?...” I mumbled…I was a bit worried about her…and seeing the expression on Jewlia’s face…there must be something wrong with her…
“Well…she woke up not too long ago…but…she refuses to talk to anyone and stays at a distance…and…when I moved my roots over to her…she attacked them in a rage…it really hurt…” Jewlia mumbled with a frown on her face…
“Yeah…she is very depressed…she didn’t even try to swallow me when she walked by me…I’m a little worried…” Seliky added…I grew very concerned now…I don’t want Hitomi to be going through this troubled time all by herself…she needs someone to comfort her…
“Well I’ll go talk to her…” I said out…”Where is she?...” Jewlia pointed to her right towards a small group of trees.
“Be careful Aurora…” Jewlia said as I slithered off to find Hitomi…




Part 45





I made my way in the direction where Jewlia pointed out where Hitomi was at…I was a bit hesitant at her comment “Be careful…”…something deep in my gut is telling me this isn’t going to be good…and it’s not that little human kicking around in me either…as I slithered on…I noticed to the right some roots that seemed to have been sliced up very badly by some sort of blade or something…I swallowed my breath remembering what Jewlia told me about how Hitomi struck at her…before I could meditate about turning back but I saw Hitomi sitting alone with her face facing a tree…I sighed to myself and slowly slithered over to Hitomi…
“Hitomi…are you ok?...” I asked…Hitomi didn’t move an inch…I slowly reached out to pat her on the shoulder…but suddenly in a burst of speed…she turned around and lashed out at me…striking me in the arm with her claws…I fell back and grabbed my arm in pain…
“Get…away…from me!...” she said with anger and pain in her voice…my arm had this very sharp pain in it and I felt my blood seeping out slowly…I dared not to look though…I knew what would happen if I did…but I was still in shock from Hitomi even attacking me like this…
“Hitomi…calm down…I’m your friend…I…just want to talk to you…” I said to her…Hitomi glared at me as she rose up the hand she used to slash me…it had my blood on her claws and I turned away…what Hitomi did after shocked me…she licked her fingers…tasting the blood and then looked back at me…
“Now once again…leave…me…ALONE!...” she yelled…I felt a tear run down my eye seeing Hitomi’s angry face…the fact that she would even attack me…made…me…sick inside…it hurts…hurts so very much…I picked myself up and turned to slither away…looking back at Hitomi before I was going to leave…I noticed this tear running down her eye and that made me not want to leave…I know Hitomi is very hurt inside and…I need to comfort her…
“Hitomi…you don’t need to go through this alone…I’m always here for you…” I mumbled…Hitomi didn’t respond…she stood there looking down at the floor…seeming if she had a shadow over her body…
“You…you would never understand…” she said as she tightened her fists…
“I do…” I said to her…Hitomi suddenly lashed out at me not giving me any time to react and grabbed my neck…
“DON’T LIE!!!...I LOST TOO MUCH!!! YOU CANT EVEN EQUAL TO MY PAIN!!!” she yelled…I felt her claws slowly digging into my neck and I struggled to keep up my breath…
“…Hi…Hitomi…I kn…know yo…your pain…you…a…aren’t alone…” I said with little breath…
“…I lost my sister…I lost my best friend and lost my mother!...and now…I lost my daughter!...don’t you dare try to try to relate to this pain!...” she yelled…I grabbed her palm and slowly pulled her hands open from my neck…allowing me to breath freely…
“Don’t be…so…sure…I lost a sister…and…I…lost my entire family…I cant say I…lost a daughter…but…Seliky is like my daughter…but…there was a time that I thought I lost her forever…and…the pain I felt during that time was…so great that I thought I would never be able to go on…so please…let me help you…” I said as I slithered to her and took her into a hug…she didn’t move but I could hear her crying over my shoulder…
“I’m sorry…I…don’t know what went over me…” she murmured…I patted her back to comfort her...
“It’s ok it’s ok…I know you are hurt inside…” I said back…
“…I lost my baby….my babies life…is…just gone…like….that…and I was helpless to…save her…” she cried… “What kind of mother can’t even protect her own baby?…”
“…I’m sorry for your loss…loosing a loved one is…very hard…but you cant isolate yourself…and…attack those who want to help…me and Jewlia only want to help…I know loosing your unborn daughter is hard…but…please…don’t be sad…it’s…making us all sad…” I said softly… “And you did ally you could…that’s all that matters…any mother would try to protect their child…you did the right thing…”
“You’re right…and…I…I’m sorry…” she mumbled as she placed her hand on the cut on my arm…it hurt for a bit but I tried to endure it…
“So…talk to me Hitomi…let it all out…” I said to her…Hitomi looked up at me and sighed as she whipped the tear from her emerald green eyes…
“But…” she paused for a second and looked away…
“Remember …I only want to help you Hitomi…I’m your friend…” I said smiling…Hitomi looked down at the floor and turned away…
“I’m sorry…can I…just have a few minutes to calm down…my heart hurts…” Hitomi mumbled…I smiled and patted her shoulder…
“Sure thing Hitomi…”
