16. Chapter 14

Amaya stood awkwardly in the port, not knowing what to do. She looked around to look for Alar who was standing next to her just a moment ago. He was sitting on a bench uninterested by the view. She went over to him.

"Uhm... Aren't we ... supposed to do something.. I don't know.. patrol or something.." She asked him.

He opened his eyes lazily "I don't care about what that elf says"

"But, what if..." she stopped when Alar lay down on the bench and closed his eye.

She thought (He's so stubborn!)

"Ok, I'm going alone... checking... you know... things..." when he didn't reply, she sighed and started walking.

"Wow, this port is still busy! Even at night!" She walked around seeing some people still walking around, few workers arranging boxes... She was appreciating the view that she carelessly bumped into someone.

"Hey, careful miss!"

She looked up to see two human men standing in front of her.

"Oh, I'm really sorry" She apologized and passed them, but one man stopped her by pulling her arm.

"Leaving already?"

"P..Please let go of me.." She begged.

"We just want to talk for a while" said the man grinning.

"You're alone right? must be boring! Let's have some fun!" said the other man.

She tried to pull her arm from the guy but he was stronger than her. Suddenly she felt like someone was hugging her from behind. Her already racing heart started pounding even faster. Then a sweet voice reached her ear "Where have you been? I was looking for you!"

(That voice...) she couldn't turn to see the man hugging her, but she saw the tattoos on his arm. It was Alar.

"Do you know these people?" He asked her with an unusually soft voice. She shook her head. (Why he's acting this way?)

She didn't see Alar's expression but the men in front of her looked scared, the hand of the man holding her arm was shaking a little. 

"Do you want something from us?" Alar said coldly, the sweetness disappeared from his voice.

"N..No.. sorry!" They backed off and ran away.

Alar released Amaya from his embrace, he stepped in front of her and looked at her face. She was very pale and her hands were shaking.

"You're such a danger magnet!" She looked up at him, her face went from ghost pale to tomato red in a second. He noticed that the man's strong hand left a red bruise on her arm.

"Are you alright?" He asked her. She took a deep breath "Yes... Thank you...." She covered the bruise with her hand, then looked up at Alar and said timidly "those guys...they thought that we're..."

"That was my best option, I didn't want to cause a scene by fighting them"

(So he's actually caring about the plan... not letting the guards suspect us) "Thank you for saving me" she said shyly.

He suddenly took her hand and started walking "Don't leave my side again."

**********************************

"I can't see them so it worked right?" Iryn asked Ruvel.

"Yes, now everyone please follow me and stay close." Said Ruvel while closing the stable's gate.

"So you can see all of us? Amazing!" Iryn exclaimed.

"Stop talking, please everyone don't talk. People can't see you but they can hear you."

They went through the castle's gate, the guards bowed again to Ruvel without noticing anything.

"Amazing! This is so exciting!" Iryn whispered. She looked at Ruvel and noticed that he had sweat on his forehead, and he was was breathing slightly faster than usual. "Are you ok?" She asked him with worry.

"I'm fine, keep going"

"My lord!" A teenage elf girl ran towards Ruvel.

"Who's she? She looks like an aristocrat." Iryn asked.

"I don't know" Ruvel stopped.

"Ah! My lord! I can't believe that I'm in front of you!" The girl said with excitement and curtsied to him.

"Forgive me. Do I know you?" Ruvel asked her in confusion.

"No you don't, but I know you! I wanted to meet you in the ball but my parents didn't let me go, I still need one more year to be able to attend balls and events!" The girl was speaking very happily.

"I'm ... sorry but... I need to go" Ruvel was breathing faster than before.

"I heard that you were in the capital, did you just come back? That was fast!" The girl continued talking.

"That's ...not me...You're mistaking me with my brother"

"You're brother? Oh! you're... the mage!" The girl was surprised. "Please forgive me!" She bowed to him and ran away.

"What was that?" Iryn asked.

"She's probably...one of my brother's fans... He's popular among girls."

"Are you ok? You don't seem good!" Iryn started to worry about him.

"I'm fine.. just keep moving..." 

They continued their way to the port. When they arrived, the port wasn't almost empty. Amaya and Alar stood up from the bench and walked towards Ruvel.

"Where is Iryn?" Alar asked. Ruvel clacked his fingers and Iryn became visible to the others.

"What was that! And where are the slaves you were talking about?" Amaya was surprised.

Iryn answered "They are invisible to us now, the ship is still there right?"

"Yes, over there! The captain is still waiting"

"Ok, let's go!" She looked at Ruvel "Your nose! It's bleeding!" He touched his nose and saw blood on his fingers. He fell on his knees. "Ruvel!" Iryn shouted.

"Please... ladies... run... I can't hold it...for...long" He was breathing hard.

"I can see them! They are transparent!" Amaya looked in the direction where the girls stood.

"Oh no! Run! Amaya go with them and show them the way!"said Iryn, then she knelt next to Ruvel "Are you ok?"

"I think...I..." 

"Hey stop! what's going on there?" a guard shouted and ran with his comrades towards Amaya and the girls.

Iryn looked at the girls and saw that they are fully visible, they attracted the guards' attention.

Ruvel's head fell on Iryn's shoulder in front of him, he said weakly "I failed...them"

She caught his arms "Look at me! You didn't fail them, you are the only one who thought about them, It's not over yet!" She helped him up and took him to a nearby bench "Rest for a while, don't worry" He nodded. 

Iryn looked back at Alar who's hand was already on the handle of his sword "Alar, let's do this!" 

They drew their swords and ran towards the guards.
