PostSubject: Zodiac Chapter 1: Down The Rabbit Hole...   Thu Jun 11, 2015 9:44 pm

The Ankh carried by Titane would continue to shine brightly under the guidance of the Taurus, directing his courier in the direction of the Earth Sanctuary from the trail of destruction left in the path of the Ushi-Oni. The glowing hoot prints in the ground would mark the trail and make it completely visible to the eyes of Titane. The foot prints were all a mess on the ground, but they were rather obvious. As he swung, the Taurus grumbled something to him. "Move Faster..."

Titane, swinging and slinging as he pleased, would hurl himself into a hand made of ivy that, when he curled his hand to the side like a surfer, arced him around and shot him off in a curved direction and dispersed once he was sent flying. He was immediately met with a hand that not only caught him but carried him on the surface of its palm mid-skate and flicked off of the finger, sent soaring into the air. Trees of variable height growing based on the distance he flew up into the air as well as how far and how fast. He was leaving behind some of his Souzenryoku, the Shinsanity of Earth, all over the land, bringing new life sprouting up from the seeds placed by this Life Energy. "Yeah, yeah, I'mma comin..." he huffed, poking out his cheek as another earthen hand carried him sliding on his side through the air, "Don't be Grumpin' all over the place." The hand that carried him cuffed around and rotated vertically a bit, facing the range of the marked land and pointing Titane toward it, "I've still gotta clean up YOUR mess, after all." Sliding off of the hand and slightly into the air, with a powerful slap like spiking a volleyball, Titane was spanked clear over the horizon and to the Earth Sanctuary, clearing the field what trampled on by the Nature Spirits controlled by the Taurus. "That about cover it...?" He stuck out his tongue playfully, snickering to himself.

As the trees regrew, they would come up as a myriad of colors based on the many colors of the rainbow. Having been exposed to both Titane's energy as well as the Astrological Energy of the Zodiac item, each tree would take on special powers and forms that were no longer that of a normal tree; They would become ambiguous and filled with energy, constantly shifting and growing as if they were not of one single solid form, but many, yet still retained their solid shape even if it was difficult to determine where they were. Their depth was askew, so some looked closer or farther away than they were, and the energy that they were embedded with changed the color of the forest. With the Zodiac Energy within the forest, not only could their energy and presence be felt or formed from these trees, but also their Sacred Beasts were allowed to roam free here, as well. "Hruh. That should do it..." By the time the monkey cleared the horizon, the Trees of Ambiguity, Confucius, as this land would be called, were all fully grown and filled with that Zodiac Energy. After this, Titane would have been taken straight back to the Earth Sanctuary, from whence he came.

Meanwhile, the footprints of the Rabbit that were guiding El and Tzita up above would lead them toward the edge of the cliff and to this very spot from where they were once they reached the edge. They would have to come down into the newly grown Forest and continue to follow the tracks of the Rabbit, mixed in with those of the Taurus.

The Rabbit Tracks that belonged to the Sacred Beast of whom resided under the Virgo were prominent in the Trees of Ambiguity, however, mixed in with the feet of the Taurus' Spirits that trampled the land, they would become diluted and difficult to decipher. The trail of the White Rabbit could not be followed clearly from this point.

They didn't fall for long, El tightened himself up so that they would accelerate to terminal velocity much faster than they would by free falling, and he landed solidly with a thud in the forest. "You alright, Lady L'sia?" He asked, turning her head to make sure she was still hanging on behind him. If she'd slipped off, then he prepared himself to catch her.

With the chain around El's neck wrapped securely around Tzita's hand, she would remain as planted on his back as she could without slipping off, pulling herself as tightly as she could. Apparently, his neck was thick enough where he wouldn't be strangled by her technique at this intensity, which was good. It also gave her training on how to hold her techniques together with higher levels of intensity. It was very good at keeping the already sturdy El stable, as well as herself upon his shoulders.

"No sweat~!" she responded, happy to be out and about working on her abilities, like when she was younger. Ever since Maze and Khrona were born, she'd basically just been sitting tight in the shadows of their villages and done nothing. She didn't need to, granted, but it made her hella bored. "This is the best I've felt since the very few things I did on Vescrutia..." Naturally, she had a different interpretation of that land considering that she just kinda got sucked back into some family stuff and wasn't really bothered by them or anything over there in the old world.

She looked around at where they were, only to find that they were in a deep forest, just like the one that she saw in her dream. "Woooah..." she said with her jaw hanging open, "It... It's exactly like what I saw in my dream..." Because of the powerful influence that gave it to her, the dream she had was a Premonition that was meant to help her on the journey she was on as well as to better herself as a person, both of which were coming together for her right now. Her eyes remained wide as she took it all in, falling silent suddenly.

El hadn't yet taken a look around. He was bothering with making sure that Tzita was uninjured, which she seemed to be. It was just an extra precaution. Once he got verbal affirmation, El finally turned around to take in the scenery. As usually, it was just as breathtaking as he would have imagined it, perhaps even more so. The lands of the Veritas that El had visited hadn't disappointed him yet when it came to their individualistic beautiful, In fact, he was able to see the charm in even the downtrodden lands of Valparaiso. It was a much more colorful world than he had come from.

He casually ran a few fingers through his raven hair, careful to avoid the horns which he had gotten used to but hadn't forgotten were there, and pushed a few strands out of his eyes. "Wow, that must have been some dream then." He commented quietly, surveying the area with his eyes. He could still she the path that they needed to travel, which was good, and it looked like it didn't go on for that much further from what his eyes could discern. He and Tzita would be upon their distance in a short time if he ran at full speed, instead of a jog, but El wanted to enjoy the forest and would take it at a leisure pace.

In fact, he turned his head to look over his shoulder, "Lady L'sia, would you care to enjoy a nice stroll with me through this lush greenery?" He asked with a gallant smile befitting that of a honorable king of knights, as he was currently. The secrets behind how he had come to be so in the short amount of time between his disappearance, and his re-summoning, would be explained later. For now, it was clear that it had something to do with the way in which he had been summoned and the connection that now lay between his sword and Tzita.

Tzita was still sort of spaced out from remembering her dream. It all just seemed to surreal to her that it would be happening the way that it was. But, she was quickly brought back to reality when El started speaking, feeling the rumbling of his voice echo in his back. "Huh? What?" She hadn't really taken in the scenery of the beautiful mystical forest, even if she was thinking about it. When she finally recognized it, she smiled happily. "Of course~! We might even be able to come across something useful and important. Maybe even one of the Sacred Beasts..." So far, they'd only come in contact with the Zodiac signs, but hadn't really experienced any of the Sacred Beasts yet. "Guess I should start using my legs then, huh...?" she sighed, rolling her eyes with a smile on her face. "I definitely need the exercise..." she added, hopping over his shoulder and swinging from his neck on her chain like a rope.

When she touched the ground, it dispersed completely, and she shook out her hand. "Damn... It's kinda taxing using my magic like that... Guess I still am pretty weak..." Usually, something so simple wouldn't have bothered her, but she actually felt more drained than she should have. Mentally, not physically. In terms of physicality, she was actually pretty pumped; a feeling she usually only got when she was engaging in sexual activity. "So... How do you wanna do this? I'm still kinda... Pumped~!"

El smiled. It was clear by Tzita's response that she hadnt understood what he meant, and that was fine. "Lady L'sia, what I was asking," Gently he hooked his arm with hers, "was if you'd allow me to escort you on a date." They already needed to take this path to get to where they needed to go, and El wanted to enjoy the scenery instead of running through it so it appeared on his perception as a simple blur.

Tzita paused briefly, turning around suddenly once the words registered in her head. "What...?" She'd never been asked on a 'date' before. Not an actual one, that is. Especially not in these times. Then again, times were changing, and this guy wasn't like all the average joes out there. "..." She remained silent, yet pensive, for a moment or two, but kept her wits about her. As much as she wanted to get to the Earth Sanctuary as swiftly as possible, she wasn't opposed to taking at least a little bit of a stroll through the forest... Especially with this hunk. She wasn't gonna make it look so easy, though. "Weeeeeell~..." she said in a singsonging manner, leaning against his great arm with her head, her short, ebony hair like silk on his skin, "... Only if you make it worth my while~!" She winked at him, leaving it up to his interpretation. She wasn't quite sure of how a forest date was going to go, but he was the one escorting her, and she was interested in seeing what he had in mind. "So don't disappoint me, hot stuff..." she muttered under her breath, allowing him to guide her.

El couldn't help but laugh heartily, amused by her confusion. He thought her various moments of misunderstanding what he meant were some of the best things to witness. It confused him as to how she had been confused though, since she struck him as the type to having tons of suitors. This fact was driven home when they were in Valparaiso and all the men there seemed angry to see them together.

He began to walk with her, through the forest and following the path illuminated for them. This wasn't really a full date, not how El would have done his thing, but a calm stroll through a beautiful expanse of greenery. It was like a walk through a lush garden or park. "Lady L'sia, are you, perhaps, not approached often?" He asked curiously, looking towards her.

Tzita, with her head upon the arm of her escort, of which she found very curious considering that she was once the one escorting him, would gaze up dreamily at the swaying leaves of the trees and the trickling bits of sunlight that peeked through. It gave the forest a rather nice little glow, yet kept it dark and cool at the same time. It reminded her of home, yet with a touch of natural beauty she'd not been exposed to for a long time. She found herself nearly getting lost in thought again, as she very often tended to do, until her still open ear was met with a rather peculiar question.

"Hmm... What brought this on?" she asked, wondering why he would think it in the first place. She didn't feel like anyone would notice that sort of thing, nor that it was even obvious. It wasn't exactly the case, either, but she wondered what made him believe it to be so. "...To answer your question, not in this way, I admit. But I've had my fair share of suitors." She felt as if her own feet barely touched the ground as she was carried by El's strong arm, but she was sure to get her own exercise. She was calming down with the serenity of the quiet forest. The rustling leaves were very appealing to her.

The brush of branches and rustling of leaves shuffled the trees with a soothing breeze and speckled the forest with the sifting sunlight. Each ruffle of the lush greenery sounded nearly to be a whisper from the forest; indistinct and as quiet as can be. It brought a sense of serenity that kept with them as they walked.

El looked away from her, after she answered his question. His suspicions had been correct, as he figured they would be, and he understood now where her confusion from his actions stemmed from. While she had suitors, it seemed very few probably actually treated her as a lady. It wasn't surprising, but El figured there was probably something more to that as well.

He refused his urge to pry, however, deciding to give his head a slight tilt for a moment, symbolizing his loss in thought, before he turned his head back to look at her again. "Hmm, no reason in particular, Lady L'sia, I was only curious. It seems like you often get confused when I ask something of you, and I was wondering why that was is all." He supposed saying that she gets confused wasn't the correct way to state it. It wasn't so much that she got confused, but that she misunderstood initially and pieced together the actual meaning a few seconds later. Either way, he enjoyed seeing it.

He glanced around them eagerly, taking in as many of the sights as he could. "So, can you tell me anything about this place? This forest is wondrous." He asked, waving his free hand outward towards the greenery around them, as to carry on with small talk, and maybe change the subject a bit.

"Confused...?" she couldn't quite get what he was talking about. Then she realized why he thought she was confused and it was clear that she'd generally been appearing to be confused when he asked her a question simply because of what she was truly thinking and feeling not quite being expressed as best as she could. "... Mm. Yeah. Sorry..." she muttered, still a bit lost in her thoughts. He was picking up on some things about her, she could tell, and that was her fault. It was something about being so calm and peaceful in this forest, as well as in his arm that made her... Slip, a little, it seemed. But she wouldn't have that. "... It's just different being with you, since you're not so pushy. I'm just enjoying the difference in company for once. That's all." She looked up and smiled at him, letting the swaying trees soothe her. They were really calming... And sort of weird.

She wasn't expecting El's question at all, though, and was almost unclear of how to answer it properly. She knew there were some things that were made because of her brother's influence that were new, and she wasn't exactly sure how she was going to explain that to El... given how Khrona is and what he was in this world. "Oh, uh, well I've never been here before, honestly... I'm just as lost as you are." She kept smiling cutely, giggling sweetly a bit. "I don't even know what's around here, nor how to get anywhere from here. I didn't really explore the world too much in this area..." Or, any of these new places, for that matter. She was used to the old world, the Reality and the Witch Province from which her original world came and was part of. "The territory I am from was pretty small compared to the rest of this place, and I didn't go out much..." She almost regretted it, with how nice this place was on the outside world. She snuggled up on his arm again, resting her eyes, "But I'm glad I get to do this with someone who's interesting enough to keep me from being bored..." she muttered, sighing with relief. "... It's almost like it's good that I didn't do anything in the past so I could do them now with you, don't you think~?"

While Tzita went on to explain what she could, and reveal her knowledge, or lack thereof, of this place, El continued to survey the area. It really was a serene place, almost to the point of inducing a zen like meditative state even while the people within were in motion. He hadn't see any animals yet, though the bunny tracks they were following, from Tzita's dream, were clear and hinted towards wildlife of some sort existing here. El wondered what kind of interesting creatures they would be able to see, if any. Maybe the wildlife was more akin to the likes of the world he originally came from, but he doubted.

As she snuggled into his arm more, El smiled and looked down at her. "Hmm, perhaps destiny had a hand in my coming here then. Or lady luck owed you a favor." He joked calmly, but didn't chuckle as he probably would have. Part of what she said, the part about not going out much, worried him a little. This world seemed so magnificent that he couldn't imagine staying in one place for too long. Then again, Tzita had already prove that she wasn't the type to wander if she could get comfortable.

"And by the territory you come from, you mean the old Witch City that Nehkir Maledictus was a part of?" He asked, assuming it to be such since that was the place she shared information on so fondly. It was also used to be the home of the witches, if he recalled correctly, which Tzita told him that she was.

Now that he really thought about it, the person who had arranged for them to go out was her father. Perhaps he worried more about his children than El originally thought. Usually the knight didn't jump to conclusions so readily, especially not based on someone's appearance, and he was glad that he hadn't. They were approaching the end of their path now, getting closer to the end game they had come here for. He stopped walking, just so in the shade of a tree rather large compared to the comparable rest.

"Strange... Usually I'm the one that owes something..." she had to admit, knowing that her own record wasn't exactly the best. Her entire family was actually more shady than even she cared to get into, on both ends; Tensei and L'sia. It was also why they were all so very much misunderstood and why much of their business was kept well within the very thick walls of the familial line. Besides that, most people didn't understand nor need to get into their business, lest they get sucked into powers beyond their control and means they couldn't deal with. Last she checked, that's what happened on Vescrutia, and anyone who got associated with them became really corrupt and power-hungry simply because of their association alone. Standing too close to the light revealed their shadows, and slipping too far into the darkness got them lost. She'd seen it happen too many times from her own Castle, even if she didn't really do anything... She was definitely watching over the Dusk when it was just the Dusk. Many of them fell prey to it, completely accidentally, as was how it went from being too close to this family. She hoped the same thing didn't happen to El. She'd do her best to keep him away from them, though, even with involvement with her own father... He was one of the worst ones, though, admittedly.

When he decided to take shelter under one of the trees, she would, of course, take refuge with him and curl up next to him, lulled into a state of serenity by the trees. It seemed to make her more willing to talk, for some reason; more off guard than she normally was, and without her noticing it, either. El's companionship did also contribute to that, as well, though. Otherwise... She may not even have responded to his question about her home town. "... Yeah, but... Even that place was part of something larger a long time ago..." she muttered softly, almost dreamily. "Every time we have to move, that territory gets smaller... The place I came from, the Witch Province, was once part of the larger abandoned city before we had to evacuate it... And affix it to part of this other world to keep it stable..." There was a lot that went on before the Reality was created that no one except for Tzita knew, being the eldest of nearly all her siblings. She knew of the times and events prior to her assistance in stabilizing the Reality with the magic of the Witch Province along with the magic of her brother Maze and the psychic reality powers of her other brother, Khrona. It was the three of them together that formed the Reality as a whole, with all their powers combined.

"Every time our magic dwindles, we lose land and can no longer support that large of an area..." she continued on, kissing his tensed arm a bit, as though she were feeling sort of frisky, "... Since that territory runs on our own power, the less people there are, the smaller it becomes and... well..." she lightly licked the tip of his bicep with her tongue, moaning softly, "... We migrate. It's how we survive, and how we strengthen our magic... The original territory..." she trailed off, now getting caught up in her sensuality. The soothing trees made her a bit more open to that, as well, and she was not only not to act on these feelings even when she was in a normal state. She lightly stroked his side with her hands under his arm, rubbing up and down very gently upon his ribcage...

"Hruh. I didn't know we had time fer lollygaggin'," a gruff voice spake from the light of the Ankh, "Y'all tired already? Huh. Thought there was more strength in them there bones-a-yers, boy..." The two of them had gotten far too comfortable with this place too easily, and they were already sedated. Taurus could feel something strange in this land, different from when his men trampled the ground. Their footprints were still there, mixed in with the rabbit tracks and convoluting the path for them to take. The footprints spread all about the forest, mixing and matching all sorts of directions. After a certain point, there was no clear indicator of where they were supposed to go, for the rabbit and bull tracks were too mixed in. "... Y'all ain't even payin' much attention to where yer goin', fer ya started gettin' all cozy..." The gruff and dutiful old man naturally wished for the children to get their work accomplished before they started slacking off. But something about this forest was making them a little too easygoing. "... Y'all ain't even noticed them there trees yet, have yeh...?"

The gentle rustling of the trees suddenly grew sightly louder, as if a stronger wind were blowing and shaking them into a stir. The soft and incoherent whispers muffled under the guise of the ruffled leaves would suddenly become a little louder, partially able to be heard now. "Who...?" voices echoed lowly, "... ... ... What...?" more continued, though from a different location entirely. They soon died down.

With the surreal shifting of the trees, nearly like the stop-motion of oil canvas paintings portraying motion, the foot prints on the ground would mimic the shifting of the trees, gradually parting from each other in some areas, some even changing direction entirely, but so subtly that if one were not paying direct and close attention, they would think they had always been that way. It was as slow and as subtle as the grass growing. It was unknown how long this had been occurring, nor how far they'd walked whilst it were happening, but even now, if they didn't pay it any mind, they would not notice it at all. The moment they thought to look, much like waking from a dream, the subtle shifting would come to an abrupt halt for as long as they looked at the area with great focus.

El hadn't particularly stopped walking for no reason. He had just done so because he noticed subtle changes in both the environment and Tzita's level of comfort as well. While he hoped they had gotten close enough to where she would share information about herself, she had never done so to such an extent before. The memories had seemed painful for her, and he never felt like prying was a good idea.

"The trees?" El questioned the Taurus spirit, once the old man began to speak to them again. He had been quiet since they entered this forest, and El thought that maybe he had gone ahead forward and prepared the spirit they were suppose to be looking for for their arrival. He wasn't exactly sure how all of this worked, still, and felt like that was an entirely normal conclusion to come to. It wasn't Taurus fault they had gotten side tracked though, this forest seemed almost... too perfect.

With the state of serenity Tzita seemed to have been lulled into, El could think that this was magic related, but he wouldn't make the assumption. Instead, he scooped her up in his arms and took a look around to see, exactly, what trees Taurus was talking about. "Is there something wrong with this forest? It seems a bit... unnatural, Taurus." Even if they had lost the trail they were suppose to follow, El believed that Tzita's Ankh could still lead them true. It hadn't led them astray before.

"Don't worry, Lady L'sia. If this forest is leading us astray, then I'll get us out of here."

The inebriated Tzita, now propped up into the arms of El would continue her own sensual advances, barely paying much mind to him. She was enjoying this more than ever, and very much enjoyed the physical attractiveness of her partner. "... Mmm... What...?" She lifted her hand up to his face, lightly caressing his cheek, drawing her fingers down under his neck and tickling it slightly. Shifting her body around restlessly in his arms, she would rather skillfully wrap her arms around his neck and hang from it, her body tensing up slightly as she did. Whilst El's arms carried her upper torso, Tzita hung on rather strong with her legs, her toned midsection in full view along with her dreamy, glistening eyes. "... Eat me..." she moaned softly, resting her arms upon his forearms and stroking them gently with her fingers.

The voice of the spirit gave a gruff sigh, something like slight disappointment in his tone, "... That's a damn shame. Lettin' my power go to yer head, eh...?" The power of the Taurus was strong, but it made some rather thick-headed. It was important for battle, but when it came to acts of discernment, at times it made vision rather narrow and reception somewhat difficult. "... Hruh. Ain't even watchin' where yer goin'..."

The light of the Ankh was able to continue to reveal the glowing tracks of the bulls and the rabbit, but with the earth shifting around, there wasn't much else that could be done with the Level of Power that their Ankh was at right now. With only the 'Eye of Truth' as their power up from the blessing of the Pisces, they would be able to see things that were going on which normally couldn't be seen, such as spirits and these spiritual tracks, for example, but the other secret abilities were still locked.

"That girlie ain't right in th'head," he said, noticing the difference in El's behavior from hers, "... Them trees might be messin' with it. Or her magic or sum'th'n. Yer alright on account-a my Blessing, boy..." The 'Thick-headedness' served as a sort of protection to sorts of mental attacks and disillusion, which was why El was much less effected. Tzita, who used magic, which came from the mind, would probably be more effected if it was messing with her head. "Can't quite tell y'all what this here power is... but I do know that a short time ago, my men left these here tracks... trampled up the ole' forest area. This new one here done just grew... And I ain't familiar with none of it." With what just occurred with the Earth God and the Taurus Spirit, this completely new forest was a mystery to even him. "Th'only one who what should know is that there monkey boy that got yet Ankh. Both're connected, if'n y'all remember." This meant that the Taurus could not only act through both of them in two different places at once, but also see through them. "Lucky fer you... I can track us to it."

Wherever they were, if they were lost, the light of the Ankh would be able to guide them directly to where the other one was regardless of what the footprints said. The shining light would be concentrated toward a specific path going to the right of El. He wasn't too far off course, but if he'd gone any farther down the path he was taking, he might have ended up not getting to his destination and risk getting even more lost in this strange forest.

"... Why... Are...?" the wind whispered again, the trees out of El's line of sight shifting slightly behind him. As he turned his head, they, too, would shift in tandem with the motion of his head, as if the entire forest were moving in tune with the movements of he, himself. "... Who... Are...?" The footprints on the ground were all suddenly pointing to El and Tzita, as if they were now the targets of focus for this strange and ambiguous, yet beautiful forest.

"You cannot even answer those questions, can you, dear boy...?" a Phantom's voice spoke from the shadows. A large hook shot up from the midst of Tzita's shade and cast itself into the shape of a man garbed in complete black. The umbra of his hood was far too thick to see his face. "And certainly, you wouldn't have wondered how long you were wandering around in circles, would you...?" He looked down at the pitiful duo, seeing to what the old girl had degenerated into. "... Hmhmhm. You'll never exit this place..." he already knew, paying neither of them any mind any further. "Yet, the shadow of my path will be new footsteps to follow..." He knew where he was going, and he needn't any light to show him the way. "... I hope you don't get lost in here, like the poor sap that pours from heart of this forest..." Another stop along the way. "... Take care of yourself," he muttered, turning away from them as his body flickered forward. With every shift of the trees, his body would match, fluctuating in perfect time with every pulsation and sending him skipping forward through time at the natural speed in which it was being accelerated. This made it seem as if the figure were jumping through spacial distortions and appearing in random places, further into the darkness of the forest. The footprints left behind were distinguished and completely set in the ground; they would not be shifted by the ground, yet would always remain completely proportionate to the set specifications they were imprinted at all times, unlike each of the footprints left by the local spirits. His body began to fade away swiftly, barely remaining in sight after a few moments.

El tried his best to ignore Tzita's inebriated advances. He was a man of honor, and this lady was in trouble. If he gave in to her suggestive actions, in her current state, then he would be no better than a rapist or pervert. El was neither. He was a knight and would save this damsel in distress with the utmost swiftness.

"I'll follow your call." He said to Taurus, ignoring the path that the shadow man created as he went on his way. El was never one to follow the path of the shadows, and was a denizen of the light. He turned to go the path that Tzita's Ankh led them towards, paying attention to its glow instead of the shifting footprints of the rabbits and the bulls.

Despite her squirming, El tried to hold Tzita as close to his chest as possible as he run at full speed to get her away from this forest that was messing with her. He didn't know, specifically, what was wrong with her, but figured it had something to do with her being a witch. "Don't worry, Lady L'sia. I promise to get you out of here and to safety. I won't fail you." He swore this on his honor.
