Hakan knew that he was going to have a complicated - to say the least - conversation coming when Darkhor awoke. So don't want to do this, he thought to himself, rubbing the back of his neck.

He just walked away, climbing up into the crows nest to be alone. There was nothing he could do. It was over and done with; a result that didn't really surprise him. He knew the fate of any children he conceived, so he had been preparing himself since he found out about the pregnancy. Darkhor, on the other hand, will have no warning as to what happened.

Taiga nodded to Kara after the babies were taken by the unknown man. His appearance would have shocked most people, but the very few things could really surprise Taiga. There was a part of her heart that broke for her brother and Darkhor. Hakan should've known better than to get himself into that situation, but Darkhor was made a victim of her brother's games.

She saw how upset Rima suddenly became at the infants passing and stepped over. "There was nothing you could have done," Taiga said softly. The tenderness in her voice was one none of them had heard from her, but it was a delicate subject.

Rima, Kara, and Kiron immediately turned their attention to her, and Taiga leaned against the side of the ship. "It's something Hakan should've told Darkhor a while ago, but there was nothing you could've done to save those children. You can have all the healers in the world and it would still be pointless.

"Those kids were never even truly alive. If an Elemental spawns a child, it will be dead or powerless. If it's dead, it was never actually alive. At least not with a full soul. It might've seemed like they were growing and healthy, but he all was carrying were ten little parasites that fed on his energy and would've come out dead anyway." It was a dark thing to put into words, but it had to be said. With the passion Rima had in her eyes, it was very possible she would try to get the babies back. That would only cause more unnecessary pain.

"Land!" Hakan called from the crows nest. He pointed in front of the ship, revealing the defined outline of Yoreiq.

Kiron flew up to the crow's nest. He couldnt believe it, there was no way they were an entire day ahead of schedule. But Hakan was right, the port of Ainu was seamlessly drawing closer and closer with every minute. Kiron shouted: "LAND HO MATEYS! RAISE THE BACK SAIL AND SWAB THE POOP DECK CAUSE WE'RE GONNA DOCK SOON!"

Kiron was overjoyed, the sight of land was a miracle. Two months on the ocean was a practical nightmare to experience. It was good to finally able to settle on firm land for a little bit.

Kara was still tending to Darkhor. He started to nudge a bit showing signs of consciousness. "Hey Dark? You there bud? It's me Kara. Im taking care of you." Kara's voice was sweet and gentle, like a mother looking after her child. Kiron overheard this and was slightly shocked that this over the top woman could actually show signs of being normal for once, but hey who on this is normal in all retrospect?

SeRimas docked in the port of Ainu where they were greeted by many of people with beautiful and gorgeous wings. He turned back to the crew: "Everyone! We leave for the island at sundown! In the meantime have some fun and resupply we're gonna need it!" Kiron was carried off by many gorgeous women with wings, he tried his best to fight back but there was just too many. Oh goodness Rima please dont get the wrong idea please.

Kara chuckled before realizing Dark had finally managed to open his eyes. She could imagine how he was going to react once he fully awoke. Dark please let me explain everything...

Darkhor had awoken but something just... felt... strange. When he heard and saw Kara speaking to him and it dawned on him that his babies were not there with him. Tears began to stream down his cheeks as he clutched himself and brought his knees up to his chest. The drakkollis had a long whine that came from his throat. Afterwards his voice croaked and he reached out to Kara, "Where are my babies? And where is that bitch Hakan? What did you all do to me? You... kicked me in the head..."

Darkhor had his head hung down and his arm dropped limply. He sighed and spoke quietly, "I don't know if I want to see him or even speak to him... He... lied to me... that has broken my heart more than anything in my life." The last part of the sentence became a whisper, "I have never been this sad in my life... Not even being driven from my own homeland and so many close and dear people that had their lives lost made me this sad. I feel so... tired..." Then he started yelling, "What is this deep feeling? Does Hakan even realize what he has done? And I will ask again... Where are my babies?!" The drakkollis's voice cracked and sounded dry and he sounded he was in despair.

Meanwhile Raukaas was hanging out with Taiga and asking a whole lot of questions like any curious child would do. The little drakkollis would ask some of the same questions he asked before that were from a day ago like, "Are we going to be there yet?" But it never seemed to cease with his unending curiosity. He was determined to do things, things that his father was already quite capable of doing.

Rima watched as the women carried Kiron. She whistled to Pepper who comes running. "Okay little buddy let's go find stuff to eat." Rima smiles a bit scratching the little guy's head. She was still upset about Darkhor's babies but it would be better if she moved on from that even if she was still aching on the inside.
Pepper squeaked and climbed onto her shoulder, "Maybe find some chickens to eat and go whore slaying." Pepper tilts it's head as the two of them get off the ship searching for food, drinks and crazy fan girls that need a lesson. Soon they disappeared in the crowd of people doing who knows what.

"I'll stay," Hakan whispered to Taiga, as she approached him and left Raukaas to his father's care. "You have bigger things to worry about."

"I wouldn't just to that," she said. "Darkhor's awake." Hakan's groan was all she needed. Taiga squeezed her brother's shoulder and walked off the ship.

The crowds at the port were bustling, and everyone was excited to meet the newcomers. Taiga avoided it, leading Calconirr and Kaeligar off the ship. The horse ignored everyone, while Calconirr enjoyed the attention to his master's surprise. She locked eyes with a young man with scaled wings, standing with a young woman. They were far from the crowd, but he immediately saw Taiga. She started in a sprint down the beach, followed by her animal companions, and leapt into his arms.

"You have no idea how much I've missed you!" She said.

Otikoro smiled, placing her back down on the ground. "I think I do, Tai. How have you-"

"Not the time," she said, cutting him off. Oti looked at Shreya, who handed him the rootsphere. Brother and sister sat down together, fingers interlocked.

Oti looked at Shreya. "Find my brother on the ship," he said. "His name is Hakan. Tell him who you are and that I sent you." Then, he took a bite of the rootsphere and had Taiga do the same to begin the ritual.

Meanwhile, Hakan stood at the edge of the ship. He paid no attention to the women flocking around Kiron, nor Rima suddenly running off. The man walked over to Darkhor with his eyes seemingly glazed over.

"They're dead, Darkhor," he said simply. It wasn't the most sensitive he could've been, but there was no use beating around the bush. "They were never alive in the first place. Sorry I didn't tell you, but if you want me to be honest, I expected to be long gone by the time this happened."

Shreya nodded and gave Taiga a friendly smile before running off towards the ship. Her nose twitches as she retraced Taiga's scent. The crowd made it difficult however due to the different fumes coming from all types of places.
The ship was final in view, Shreya gently pushed past people giving small 'excuse me's and pardons if she thought she was to pushy. The ramp was down on the dock. Shreya's eyes looked around as she made her way up to the main deck of the boat. She saw Hakan standing at the edge of the boat with Darkhor. They seemed to be in a intense conversation.
Shreya didnt catch what Hakan had said though for she knew it was not her place to ease drop into private discussions. Shreya didn't want to intrude but she was given an order so she coughed loud enough to grab the two male's attention.
"I'm sorry to interuppt" Shreya excused herself for she felt wrong disrupting a conversation that seemed important. "You're Hakan right? My name is Shreya and your brother, Otikoro, has sent me to find you" the eolf looked at Darkhor and gave him a simple nod in greeting.

Kara sat Dark up for a moment and embraced him with a sincere hug as she spoke into his ear. "You had an accelerated pregnancy. All of your children, every, single, one was stillborn. Dark please dont take this the wrong way ok? Heck I even had an old friend of mine come and make sure that each and every one of them were taken to Paradise." Kara's voice began to break, "I'm so-sorry Dark. I had to give you a discount C-section in order to get them out. I didn't want you awake because I could only imagine the pain you would be in. Please forgive me..."

This was unnatural for Kara, this display of emotion only came out at something she truly despaired. The death of children was no exception to this. She remembered each one of their cute little faces and the realization that each one of them were stillborn. It brought a tear to Kara's eye. "I'm sorry..."

Kiron was being handled by a group of women as he perused through the markets. He caught a glimpse of Taiga and what he presumed to be her brother Otikoro. Kiron snuck his way away from the girls and sat a fair distance away observing the ritual they were performing.

Darkhor was not surprised nor was he expecting all of this at this point. He just then said very quietly, "Nothing." The drakkollis just... simply stood up and ignored Hakan walking right past him. He obviously was not stable upon walking out, his body was shaking and trembling. Stretching out his massive wings then folding them.

Stepping down the SeRimas he was ignore the crowd at first, he didn't acknowledge the wolf that had interrupted the conversation. Darkhor was done talking and didn't wish to speak further. At the moment he had begun to walk along the sand someone there found Darkhor to be very familiar. He saw Taiga and Otikoro sitting down doing a ritual of some kind but he stayed a certain distance away from them to avoid to be disrupting anything accidentally. The drakkollis felt lightheaded and weak standing still and not sitting down.

A young drakkollis had seen it. The thought crossed his mind immediately, "Darkhor... Oh my gods..." The Nigasche drakkollis sprinted across the beach yelling loudly in excitement and happiness, "FATHER!!!" He ran and jumped hugging Darkhor burying his face into his arms crying. The young drakkollis with dark brown tanned skin who stood 6 feet tall whose body was very muscular made a weak punch to Darkhor's shoulder sobbing, "DON'T YOU EVER DO THAT TO ME AGAIN! I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD! DON'T YOU EVER LEAVE ME LIKE THIS AGAIN!"

The moment of this Darkhor's knees buckled and he collapsed, "Froig..." He didn't have it in him to speak even with someone he had not seen in a while. Within seconds later he felt himself suddenly being lifted off of the ground and being carried towards the crowd. Froig had completely lost his fear of all the people but it was only temporarily until he would realize where he was. The drakkollis then asked Darkhor, "Where's Raukaas? Is he OK? Is he here?! Please please please tell me father!"

Raukaas ran down the ship's ramp, "Dad!....." Then the little drakkollis made big wide eyes, "FROIG?!" He made a shrill cry and ran up to him stopping when he saw he was carrying their father. He waited patiently until Darkhor was set down, "I never thought I'd be actually carrying dad. It was always the other away around." Then the two drakkollis looked at each other and hugged one another, "What's wrong with father?"

Froig finally asked the question setting Raukaas down who answered, "He's been really sad..." Then nodding his head with a look of growing concern, "What is he sad for? Do you know why Rauk?" "Uhm... Just... ask dad or everyone else who was on the trip...", Raukaas looked down at his feet not really wanting to talk about this but rather just spend time with Froig and the others having fun. Froig asked quickly, "Dad. Can you answer me? Or is this not really the time?" Darkhor did not give the response Froig wanted, he just sighed and put his head down.

The young drakkollis just tossed his hands up and let them fall to his sides, "Great... He's acting like he just lost mom all over again. He didn't speak for a full month and just... did this... and cried and slept a lot. He also didn't eat hardly a thing and I thought he was going to die. Rauk just forget I brought this up." Then he walked away and poked Raukaas on the shoulder who squeaked and squealed running off. He ran right past Taiga and Otikoro screaming with delight while Froig chased right after him yelling, "Raukaas! Get back over here! Uuuuggggghhh fine..." He tagged Rauk who turned around clung onto his back. The first instinctual thing Froig did was fling him off of his back, when the little drakkollis fell he got back up grabbing him and squealing not even caring that he was flung a bit frighteningly aggressive strength which the older younger drakkollis could have hurt him.

While the two were focused on one another and Kiron being preoccupied with the crowd of people Darkhor got up and wandered off. It was aimlessly going in different directions. The adult drakkollis wasn't thinking straight and ended up about in the same area of where Rima was possibly at. He found Rima shopping for food and some supplies. Upon walking up to her he made a deep and menacing growl directed at Rima.

He stared down at her, the eye color turning to a sickly yellow color. A long drawn out hiss came out breathily as he loomed over her. Aggression was present but all that came to mind was anger, revenge, fear, jealousy and the need to pick on something in a cruel way to satisfy his needs. Darkhor Slammed a massive hand down in front of Rima. Not a word was spoken as he shoved her further away from the group and the others people who were present, he felt that sudden loss of control of himself and he was not able to regain it continuing to do his actions.

Rima jumps a bit when Darkhor slammed his fist down on the table infront of here.  "What gives Dark-" She glares at Darkhor about to say something else bit he started pushing her away from the group. Making her drop the potatoes.  No one messed with her potatoes but in this case this was different as he was twice her size.  She felt a dark and angry aura coming from him. This wasn't good,  he was growling and hissing. This got her terrified as she never seen him this way before. Even when he was a hormonal mess going up and down on emotions like the waves of the ocean.

Pepper and Rima look at each other for a moment before Pepper glares at Darkhor and bares his teeth fluffed up. By now they we're pretty far away.  She has enough of Darkhors little antic and elbows him in the leg and pushes him away,  "Hey! " She backs up a bit ready to slap him if needed or summon her dagger.  Pepper was defiantly ready to sink his teeth into the giant being. They weren't  the kind to be pushed around much. But if they had good intentions they were find but if it was aggressive like in Darkhor's case they would not stand for it.  "What the hell gotten into you you giant chimera lizard!?  "

The ritual being performed was simple, but time consuming. For anyone watching, it would seem like they were just holding hands in a meditative state. For anyone with a keen eye or experience with the astral plane, they would be able to see the souls of Taiga and Otikoro sitting beside their bodies.

Rootsphere was a cleansing agents of sorts, specific to possession. As long as the possessed person had someone stronger to hold onto during the expulsion of the spirits, the ritual should go smoothly. The souls exit the bodies, and the possessing spirit is left with nothing to really cling onto. Overall, the ritual took about half an hour, but to those involved, it felt like mere seconds.

Hakan looked at the eolf girl and smirked. "I am. Any friend of Oti's...such and such." He looked her up and down. "My sister's preoccupied, so I'll introduce you to everyone else. That's Kara. She's a little emotional right now. Long story, but I'm pretty sure she's in love with me."

Followed by Strinti, Hakan and Shreya walked onto the island; Hakan's first time in Yoreiq. It was certainly beautiful, and there were so many people! That came as a bit of a surprise. They took care to walk around the crowd. Hakan pointed out Taiga, then Kiron who apparently was watching the ritual take place. He told her who Raukaas was, but couldn't figure out where the other drakkollis had come from. Continuing on, Hakan followed the path on which Rima had gone, until...

Shreya and Hakan stopped, seeing Rima in a defensive stance against Darkhor. The man ran up to them, standing between them and keeping clear of the pissed off ball of fluff. "Hey, what's wrong?" He asked. "Oh, uh, Rima, Darkhor, this is Shreya. Shreya, Rima and Darkhor. Now, everyone just calm down! We're finally off that damned ship, so now is not the time to rip each other apart!"

Shreya calmly walked over to the three nodded at the two looking back and forth between the ruffled people and the creature on Rima's back. Her eyes flicked back and forth between the three. The scent that Rima carried was one of agitation yet hinted with fear. Darkhor had the scent of anger and an aura for revenge. Not only that, Darkhor looked like he was about to explode for his eyes seemed to glow and the noise his throat was making was threatening.
Shreya's body tense glad she stretched her wrist and flexed her fingers, most likely getting ready for a fight. She kept silent though watching the scene unfold and the body language of the creatures in front of her.

"Hakan's right. Dark hun, what has gotten into you this time? Come with me because you are not ripping anyone apart when we literally have some free time to relax after being on the ship for two damn months. Come with me." Kara motioned Dark to follow her over to the local market. "And if you don't come I'm going to knock you out again." She said jokingly with a smile.

Kiron was fascinated with the ritual that Taiga and Oti were performing. He was just sitting there and so was sh... Kiron had fallen asleep within the first 5 minutes or so of watching the ritual. At this point it would take a miracle to wake him up.
