Sylph Blood

On a full moon my family, friends, all my people has been either slaughtered or taken away by the humans. Since that night my life have been shifted too many times and I knew deep down that nothing will ever be the same. And on my death I swear to the gods and goddesses that I will take revenge and show my wrath to the sinful humans.


4. 4


  The sound of grunts and yells interrupted my sleep. At first I felt confusion as to what was happening outside. Usually it was quiet and if there was a fight between a maxia person and human it wasn't this loud. As my sleep haze mind cleared I remember what the guy told me about. A surge of adrenaline made me even more aware of my surroundings and prepared me to escape. My breath started to come more frantic in anticipation and I had to force myself to even it out to be more clear headed.

  Outside the sounds of a fight got closer before there was no more clashes of weapon against weapon. Someone shouted orders and in a long moment the door to my cell opened. I didn't realize that I held my breath until it tumbled out of my lips. In front of me stood the women from earlier but she looked different. Instead of a dress she wore black pants, long boots and a red long sleeve. On top of her head was a large red hat and a sword on her hip. The black hair once tightly tied up now was in a loose braid.

  A soft smile tilted her lips and she came over to me quickly. I was too stunned to say anything as she put in a key to my shackles and set me free. Still silent she helped me up and steadied me as my weak legs fought to support my body. "You..."

 It was all I could manage to say. The women smiled even more and grabbed my hand. "Yes, me. I will explain more on my ship but for now we need to run. Do you think you can do that?" She asked.

  Without hesitation I nodded and she turned to run out of the cell door. Around us the others were set free and there were bodies of humans on the ground. Blood glistened off the stones but I didn't bother to pay attention. My mind was soley focused on getting out of here. To push one leg forward as fast as I could and not look back. 

  Outside the clouds covered the moon and as soon as my face hit the fresh air I couldn't hold back a cry. I was outside. After twelve years I was finally outside. The air smelled so fresh just like how I remembered it to be. Rain slightly drizzled down and the feeling was marvelous. The urge to cry and enjoy being outside was overwhelming but the women pulled me along. There was no time to rejoice in my near freedom. We had to quickly leave this place and get somewhere safe. 

  I was surprised but very much so relieved that the people took care of the guards outside. We were the only ones moving and soon enough we hopped into a carriage. It was a tight fit and some sat on the floor but we managed to get a quick get away. I stared out the small window into the night and the shrinking place that caged me for years. Long after it wasn't in sight I was still staring out the window in awe. The night was beautiful and freeing. 

  Hot tears steamed down my face and I openly cried. I was free. I was safe. I continuously said over and over in my mind that I was free. It was hard to believe and a part of me wondered if this was a dream. Worried that I would soon wake up back in the cell chained and cold. Though this felt too real to be a dream and there was no way I could dream this up. It was too detailed and amazing.

  A hand touched my shoulder and I tensed up at the suddent contact. Turning around I came face to face with the women who unchained me and brought me to safety. Without a second thought I wrapped my arms around her and cried into her shoulder. "Thank you. Thank you. Thank you." I sobbed out. 

  She didn't seem to mind my sudden embrace and only wrapped her arms around me. I felt safe and warm in her arms. Protected even. "It's okay. You are safe now." She spoke and the carriage came to a halt. "We have to get out now and to my ship. When we get there you can sleep." 

  Her words were soothing and she pulled away from me. I looked into her brown eyes and finally more relaxed I smelled her. She had the scent of a human. My body tensed and my eyes widened at the women. She was human. She was one of them. Evil. Greedy. I was going to get hurt again. 

  My fear and hatred must be easily recognizable because she frowned. It was silly to believe that she was evil and will hurt me but it was hard to get over what I have been taught. It was humans who killed my people and family. Humans who locked me up for years. Humans who ruined everything. But this women saved me from my cell. She told me I was safe and her actions proved it.

  My breath became hectic and I looked at the others who saved us. There was four others besides the ten who was from the cells. One was human but the others were maxia people. The man who gave me the food was here as well. He was an elf. Confused I looked back at the women who had a determined look on her face. "I am human. But I promise you that I mean you no harm. Please, trust me." She spoke evenly and held out her hand. "Take my hand and come with me. You will be safe on my ship."

  I looked down at her hand. The gloves that she wore before were now off. Slowly I reached out my own and took her hand. This women was safe and she will help me stay safe and free. Her eyes told me that she felt proud and relieved with my trust in her. She turned around and looked at the others who were saved. I noticed that one of the lycanthropes were not with us and I assumed that they died somehow. My heart squeezed as I mourned over the lost. Whoever it was, they were on the verge of being free from the cells but died before it could happen.

  Still the others looked intently at the women. "I am captian of the Freer. My crew and I have saved you all from the wretched lord. I will give you the option to leave now and not join us, or come with us and onto the Freer." She offered the others.

  They seemed excited to be out and contemplative. They didn't seem to hold a grudge against the captain or the rest of her crew that saved us. The vampire was the one to talk first. "I will go with you. You saved my life and I owe you just as much." He said and the others soon agreed with him.

  With that all of us got out and we hastily made our way to the beach. There were two small boats that would take us to the ship that I could spot out on the water. Behind it the sun was starting to lighten the sky to a grey and the red sails were becoming vibrant. The women did not leave my side and got in the same boat as I did. Looking at her again I tried to understand that she was a human who was different. She was caring, she was helping us maxia people, and she even offered us a choice to go with her. It wasn't against my will to come with her and that meant a lot to me.

  She noticed me staring at her and when she smiled at me I couldn't help but blush. "I am captain Aadya. Please call me Aadya." She introduced herself.

  For the first time in years I smiled. It felt off but it was no doubt a smile that tilted my lips. "Amilia Strongborne. Child of cheif Isa Strongborne and Nebi Strongborne. Please call me Amilia." It was a formal introduction and I slightly bowed to her.
