Ch. 13 -Help in the Reclussive Vally-
I realized a big problem when I had Spotted fox troopers earlier headed back where I knew the others were at while I was looking for someone to help Light n' I just knew that we now may need more than just a doctor. I was lucky that I'm the fastest one in the group on the ground since the foxes couldn't keep up with me at all, though I was still focused on finding that much needed help.
A few hours had passed since I was searching when I accidentally ran into someone bowling them over though I skided a bit further away "ow...o.k need to watch my path" I groaned as I sat up n' glanced back to see a group that looked different from what we were used to seeing. "Man did anyone get the number of that wagon that hit me?" the other, a Cougar with the coloration of a Cheetah said rubbing his head a bit then looked to see me not too far away "well now, Whats a Riftwind doin so far inland?"
I sighed a bit "I need help, n' a lot of it too...Light's sick n' needs a doctor n' Foxes have been heading where I left them" I said to them nervously since I have no clue if they are trust worthy. I then noted a hedgewolf n' a Hippogryph grab a obvious Tigershark hybrid who suddenly seemed crazed "No Ripper we do not need issues!" one of the two yelled. They soon gathered their stuff "Show us the way" a Fox said though I was nervous with this one, but complied to lead them back quickly.
I'm gonna strangle Sonic if he doesn't hurry up with that double time help, but with these Foxes now pinning us in this cave n' Light out cold from the infected wound all we could do really is hope he didn't get caught. "Give us the Lightwing n' the rest of you will live!" a fox yelled, but as usual we refused to do that. I note a strange object came rolling in n' started spewing a strange mist that we soon realized was bad news.
Fleetway seemed to get sleepy but I didn't realize the problem till I myself started to feel exhausted 'd-damn it, this must be from that cornila rose...' I had thought before me n' the others collapsed from the mist. I feared we may lose Light to these foxes again when I swore I heard something but I donno what it was.
I saw the foxes had the others pinned n' they seemed weakened till I realized that they were falling into a slumber n' noted the hedgewolf yank out some odd contraption n' let an arrow fly that gave a weird sound before going off with a bang startling a bunch of the fox troopers n' elites. Then we heard a snap n' we noted the tiger shark Ripper bolt in "Damn it Ripper!" the couger yelled out as they charged in as well.
they all seemed to deal with the foxes quickly n' only one got away from the attack "man I love a great Meal!" Ripper yelled only to get wacked by the nagashark. I ran inside to see they were alright n' that Light was still here but worse than last time "Damn...Do you guys have a doctor?!" I called out seeing him sickly was not in my best interest. The Naga came into the cave n' seemed to have a surprised look on her face "I see...I can help him indeed, just give me some space" she asked as she unwrapped the wounded leg "a bone dragon did this didn't it?"
I just nodded "y-yeah n' it's gotten worse" I replied n' she nodded. I looked off to the comotion outside when I hear a small whine, I spot that She seemed to have applied her fangs but before I could react the Fox in this group stopped me "relax, her venom can heal...just let her do her duty" he said to me. I was surprised that the wound healed to just a barely noticable scar "he should be fine come morning" she said n' lay Light on her coiled tail. I just sighed a bit knowing that Light would live n' we avoided yet another fox problem thanks to these guys.
I started to wake up later on n' though I felt numb I opened my eyes to look directly at a stranger that scared the living hell outta me causing me to fall outta the coil I never knew I was on n' fell right on top of Sonic startling him awake. "Ah what the fu~" Sonic looked up to me as I sheepishly smiled "Light seriously what the hell?" I sighed a bit as I looked up to the naga who also had a sheepish smile "Sorry child I didn't mean to startle you there" she said softly as she also uncoiled herself.
"W-who are you all?" I asked her n' the other strangers nervously as I stood up off of Sonic. "I'm Niaga, n' these screwballs are Agos the Hippogryph, Ripper the Tigershark mix blood, Conaa the Tigerwolf, Decos the Cougar, Bretos the hedgewolf, Fiax the hedgecougar, Solere the Chameleon, Yara the nagashark, Forte the Succubus hedgehog hybrid, n' our leader n' tough boy Zhola the fox" she replied though I really looked nervous to the Fox in the group.
"w-why do you look so much like Demise?" I asked hiding behind Shadow n' I spotted a harsh glare. I squeaked when he barked "Don't line me up with that ungreatful meatbag fox! that fool lacks the Rights to be called King!" he said aggitated, I guess I struck a nerve there. "here we go again..." Yara said surprised as Ripper backed off shyly "Zhola calm your fuzzy ten tailed butt down before we have you knocked out again..." we spotted him freeze at that threat, glancing back to her with that look like he hoped she was lying.
It surprisingly didn't take all that long for him to calm down "I apologize...I just hate being told that I look like my older brother Demise...the fool fell for the fears of the unknown n' as things got worse I left his side knowing it could only lead to death" Zhola said as he sat down n' I looked down thinking back to the issues that had come since this war started. "I guess we both have our reasons to hate the Fox King..." I said looking back to him n' he looked up again "he's done nothing but slaughter all those whom defied him n' ravaged the homes of those who do not Ether way both ends suffer, I want that to end."
I noted several of them here smile a bit "a noble thought you have young Prince" I looked to Yara confused "the Fox King took your home n' people away from you at such a young age I myself would have wished I could have stopped it then but the fact that you wish to end all this pain is a sign you maybe a better Ruler than even you own Mother Gabriell." I stood up n' looked around I would guess that things may have shifted once again but in our favor "if your willing I am ready to start building an army to fight back against the Fox King n' his plague on our realm."
with a calm look I noted them nod in return "we will assist as best we can in helping to build the revolution to this world" Zhola replied as we eventually left the cave n' wandered on to find a place to set up the base of opperrations.
