Mila took to healing Nero. He was in worse shape than she had originally thought. He had broken ribs and blood and bruises all over. She still felt tired from Seth draining all her magic and she could feel him taking more of it as he fought against the beast.
"Nero, you really shouldn't push yourself like this. you should have just woken Seth and me, we could have helped too."
"All due respect, you had been asleep for 5 days, I was not sure I could wake you,"
Mila froze with a jolt.
"Four DAYS!?"
"Yes. You both completely drained yourselves. It takes at least a week to rebuild a magic reservoir fully. I can feel even now that you aren't as strong in your healing as you usually are. Just heal the worst of it. Bruises and small cuts do not concern me at all."
Mila fixed the broken bones in place and closed the worst of the cuts. She felt exhausted.
"Thank you. Now I suppose we had better find Seth. He could be in trouble too."
"He isn't badly injured. I can feel him on the island. That way." She pointed across the island.
Nero stared at her in wonder. "I still do not know how you did that. A link that strong should have killed at least one of you."
"Don't ask me either, I am just as lost as you are."
They started toward Seth.
The island was a thick jungle. It would have been much easier to fly, but Mila didn't know if she had the strength to lift off, let alone fly and Seth felt far away. She didn't have to explain this to Nero. He simply walked without even suggesting flying.
Mila stared at the bruised man. "You must be very dedicated to Seth. I know you have been his knight for a very long time."
"I have been with him since he was just a baby. I was only 100 years old myself at that time. Hardly old enough to protect myself, let alone a prince."
"But, didn't you come along from the heavens to protect the world against the hautloss?"
"I am afraid I am not as noble as that. I was sent up from the underworld. I left for a better cause. We could never have known how dangerous the Hautloss actually was. I had fought against it and nearly lost my life. We managed to seal it. But we knew it would not last. I was sent to the demon realm again to protect the prince. My father had held this position before me. He had looked after many generations of demonic kings. It is an agreement the angels and demons had come to long ago. A way to keep the demon realm in check if you will. My father perished to the Hautloss in the war and I, a simple child, was left with the important job of protecting a royal. I vowed to do my father proud. I trained at every opportunity. And then I grew to love Seth. I would gladly give my life to protect him, and by extension, you. I do not know what would happen if one of you were to perish. A link this strong has never been seen. I would very much prefer to not find out."
Mila did not know how to respond and so they walked on in silence

Taking in a deep breath, Seth focused his mind and searched for Mila. It was slightly difficult as both of them were extremely drained of magic, but he managed to reach her eventually.
Mila...I’m heading towards the temple at the centre of the island. It’ll take me a day to get there from where I am. Head towards the temple, I’ll meet you there.
Unable to hold the connection for any longer, Seth pulled away from her magic. He knew that she and Nero would be okay; at least they were not travelling alone. He mulled briefly on Darcia and Drayce, hopefully they would head towards the centre of island too.

Taking to his cat form, Seth began to travel towards the temple.
…………………………..

Nero walked wordlessly beside Mila. He noticed that she seemed preoccupied, was she able to communicate with Seth from this distance?
“Mila? Is something wrong? You seem distracted a bit distracted”

"Seth is trying to say something, but he i breaking up. I heard temple and a day, but the rest was lost."
"Maybe we should go to the temple? He might be heading there. Chances are Drayce and Darcie will also be going there if they made it to the island." Nero offered.
"I guess so. It's getting darker now. Maybe we should find a place to rest for tonight? We have been walking for hours now. We should also try to find some food."
They came across some berries and Nero used his magic to move some plants into a tent formation. It wa barely enough for them to fit into, but it was thick enough to keep wind and rain out.
They sat and ate the berries they found.
"Nero, I know I haven't said it enough, but I really am grateful that you are here. Seth really doe need you, and without you I never would have been able to control his magic. You really are a great knight."
He smiled warmly at her.
"You are shaping up to be a fairly good knight yourself. You have blindly followed Seth into many dangerous situations and saved him almost as many times. We never really bring it up, but I am glad that he found a partner like you. I am happy to give him up for someone like you."
Mila could feel her cheeks redden. "You still love him don't you?"
Nero's smile turned sad. "I will always love him, but lately it feels more like the love a father has for a son. A proudness almost. Definitely an unconditional love, whatever it is."
Mila shivered and Nero moved in closer, wrapping a wing around her for warmth. She smiled at him.
"I guess he does have a way about him doesn't he? It's no wonder we fell for him. He i really lucky to have you. I'm glad you came for him."
"It is only my job."
Mila yawned deeply.
"you should get some rest. You are still very weak."
She nodded at him and settled into the tent.
Nero sat outside and stared at the stars for a few hours. He thought back on every moment with Seth and the pain he felt when he first saw him with Mila. He had been so jealous. Somewhere along the way however he had let go of that. He could see how Mila affected Seth. She had changed him in ways Nero never could have. They were so connected and so good for each other. A part of Nero wished he could have been that for Seth, but he knew never could and if he had to give Seth up to someone he was glad it was Mila.

............................
Darcia washed up on the sandy beach, barely breathing. Drayce raced over to her and scooped her up. He rubbed her chest and held her close for warmth.
She weakly opened her eyes.
"Darcia! I am so glad you are awake!"
"Drayce? Where are we?"
It dawned on him that she had only woken up when they were attacked. "We are on the island of the royals. We have come for the sacred weapon. Seth brought us here. You were injured and slept most of the trip. We were attacked and washed up here."
"Seth? Oh yes. The prince boy..."
She really did not remember him. "Yes, the prince. I do not know where they are though. We got split up."

When the darkness of the night had finally fallen over the forest, Seth stopped traveling and took to the trees for refuge. He made himself comfortable inside a hollowed out branch. It wasn’t long before he found himself drifting off into a deep sleep.

As he slept, his thoughts began to warp into a series of strange dream-like images. The first image he saw was of 3 birds; a white dove, a grey owl and a black crow. The next image was of an orb weaver, its abdomen golden and hourglass-like. Seth watched the bizarre spider curiously; It was weaving a massive web across the tops of the trees.
Out of the three birds that flew over the trees, the weaver’s web caught the crow. The crow struggled in its silken trap. One venomous bite from the weaver though and it was all over. The crow was dead within seconds, its feathered body limb.

Seth jolted awake, his heart beating fast. He took a moment to gather his thoughts. The dream… it was a dream, right? It felt strange though, it felt like a vision of sorts. He didn’t understand it.
With a cat-like stretched, he made his way out of the branch and back into the forest. In the distance, he could see the stone temple peeking out through the trees.
“I better not waste any more time…”

……………………………………….

Later that afternoon Seth finally reached the temple. It was an ancient building with 3 huge stone statues at the entrance. Each statue was of a previous demon royal in their mightiest of forms. Gawking at the intricacy of the stone work, Seth returned to his human form. He felt a ripple of nostalgia and sadness pierce through his heart. His fingers traced the stone statue of his father. His father’s demon form was frightening even in stone…

Hearing Darcia and Drayce in the background, Seth broke from his thoughts and turned his attention towards them.
“So you made it out of the ship wreck alive then?”
Drayce smirked and rolled his eyes, “Yeah no thanks to you.” Seth seemed rather entertained by this response. “You’re strong enough; I figured you’d be okay.”
He then politely turned his focus on Darcia, “It’s a pleasure to see you again Duchess, I hope that you are feeling better?” The Girl blushed and nodded, “My lord, I feel much better thank you”
“Good”, he purred charmingly
Flicking his ears, he heard footsteps approaching. Could it be Mila and Nero?
