The six of us make our way out of the caves and into the water. It still gets me every time going from air to water. I’m much more comfortable transforming from fin to legs. Legs to fin is still a bit uncomfortable, but I manage. We swim out to the outer rooms all covered in wood. It’s eerily quiet to me. I admit, under the sea, everything is quieter than on land, but this is creepy quiet. Yes, I have definitely watched too many horror flicks.

As we round the corner following Blake, he falls back into me with a Yelp. I glance down and see an arrow sticking out of his chest. Crap!

I yell to the others, “Get back, take cover!”

The rest of us disperse into corners and rooms. I manage to pull Blake back into the closest room. I pull the arrow out with a swift movement and jab my hand with it. I squeeze my blood into the wound the best I can. I now understand why this works better in air. I place him against the wall and tell him, “Hey, I’ll be right back.”

He grabs my arm before I’m out of reach and says, “Go give them hell James.”

I nod and head out the door. That is exactly what I intend on doing. This is an unfair fight. Alody’s people have been through enough.

I swim out into the hall and meet the gaze of two of the others. I jerk my head in the direction of the outer room letting them know my intentions. They both reach for arrows and ready their bows to cover me. I swim out with my spear in hand. Yeah, we all know how I suck at that. It’s a weapon, nonetheless. As I round the corner, one Lior is aiming an arrow straight at me but before he can release, an arrow sails straight through his chest. Another one flies through the water from behind me meeting the arm of another Lior. I look around to see what we’re up against. All together I count five more coming at us. I raise my spear and release it, trying to ‘will’ it into the closest Lior. It meets its mark just as a fist delves into my back. I wince and turn at the pain. He’s already about to throw another punch but I block it and connect my fist with his face. He seems disoriented but comes back at me. I raise my arms to block his punches and follow with my own. Both of us are taking a beating. Finally, I connect with his side and a crack reverberates through the water. He falls to the floor grasping his side. I punch him once more knocking him out.

When I turn around, the others are standing there watching. I look around and notice all the Lior are out cold. One of the others speaks up and asks, “Blake?”

I shrug my shoulders, “Not sure. We need to get him back as soon as possible though.”

We split up. Two go back to the small room and get Blake to take him back and I take two with me to check out the weapons.

As we enter, it’s not as bad as I feared but not as good as I hoped. Half the spears are torn off the walls and broken. The bows are in better shape. We start to gather as much as we can carry. I must shoulder eight bow sets. I just hope no other Lior come looking for their friends.

The minute the water drains from the outer room, Alody is marching in furious. I know why and I’m willing to take anything she has to dish out. A small smile plays on my lips at the memory of this same Alody the first time we met, not so many days ago. She smacks me in the arm and starts her rant, “I told you not to go. I told you it was dangerous. And now look at Blake. Why didn’t you listen to me?”

Her voice starts to waver. I drop the spears and release the bow sets holding my arms out for her. She slams into me burying her face in my chest. I rub her back soothingly while she tries to stop her tears. She pulls back once more and smacks me again, “I thought I lost you when they brought him back.”

I lift her chin up so she looks me in the eyes, “You will never lose me. Do you understand that? I am yours forever.”

She loses it again and sinks into my chest. I smile at the irony of it all. My sweet, strong, Alody.
