Damion was sitting in his cabin when he heard the Captain's call. Gathering his scimitar and his hawk compainion, Jean-Luc, he open his door and peered over the railing. He saw the island in the distance and his eyes narrowed seeing it approach ominously. Jean-Luc let out a sqawk and he continued his walk to the captain.

Captain Saru

Saru heard the cry of Jean-Luc, and turned to see Damion and his hawk coming toward her.
"Something isn't right here. I checked the map. There shouldn't be an island here."

"I knew something didn't feel right" turning away for a moment, Damion muttered something to his hawk, using the wind to cover it. Shreiking again, Jean-Luc nodded and flew foward towards the island. Damion turned to watch him.

Captain Saru

Saru watched as the hawk flew toward the island, silently wishing him luck.
She turned to Damion. "What do you say to going ashore?"

Damion waited until Jean-Luc dissapeared into the trees, and then replied "Do we have a choice...Jean-Luc will meet the crew when we land" Turning to the captain Damion awaited orders

Captain Saru

Saru turned to her gathered crew. "Anyone going ashore, get in the boats now."
Climbing into the first boat, she waited for the crew to join her.

Damion made his way to the second boat..he made a quick check that all his weapons were secured and then turned to await departure.

Captain Saru

Saru began rowing out toward the island, not knowing what awaited there. Riku chittered nervously on her shoulder.
She reached up and stroked his head gently to calm him down, then continued rowing.

Damion scanned all the boats as they approached the island, seeing who had dared to join them...then he saw it...Jean-Luc was flying towards him fast

Captain Saru

Saru sees the hawk flying quickly toward the boats.
"Damion! What's wrong? I though he was going to meet us there!"

As the hawk landed, it started squawking at Damion, much to the suprise of many of the people on the ship with him, Damion squawked back..he and the hawk continued this for a few mintues and then he turned shouted to Saru.."He found what appears to be an abandon village...he saw lots of movement amongst the trees, but he couldnt see what was there" glancing around, Damion noticed fellow crewmembers still staring at him

Captain Saru

"Well," Saru muttered to herself, "This should be interesting..."
Now closer to shore, Saru jumped out of the boat, landing ankle deep in the chilly water. Walking up to the sandy shore, she turned and waited for the rest of the crew.

Damion leaped out of boat with a splash...his hawk sat on his shoulder. As Damion walked to the captain he spoke just loud enough for her to hear "What of our guest on the ship...and i dont think the crew knew i spoke hawk" grinning to himself, Damion turned again to face the dark tree ahead

"I made sure someone stayed with him. He should be alright."
Saru turned to Damion. "And as for the crew...They should be used to the slightly...out of the ordinary by now." She smiled.
Riku jumped from her shoulder to sit on top of her head.
"Ready, Riku?"
The little monkey chittered bravely. "I'll take that as a yes, then." Saru stared toward the trees.

Grinning again, he motioned to the trees "You or Me?"

"The both of us?" Saru laughed.
She walked slowly toward the trees. Peering into the darkness, she hesitated a moment, but then disappeared into the dense jungle.

Damion placed a hand on one of his scimitars and followed the captain in

Captain Saru

Saru felt for the dagger she kept hidden in her belt. Feeling the leather sheath, she felt a little safer. Riku jumped back onto her shoulder, hiding behind her neck. He chittered nervously in her ear.
"Shh..." She tried to comfort the little monkey, feeling uneasy herself. Something about this place seemed a little off.

Damion turned and noticed that crew seemed hesitant.."Lets move, the captain is already ahead" he shouted at them and then pushed foward to catch up with Saru

Hearing something move next to her, Saru quickly drew her dagger and turned toward the sound. A bird flew out of the bush and toward the dark canopy of trees ahead.
'Why am I feeling so nervous?' Saru thought to herself. She put the dagger back in its sheath. 'I'm never this jumpy...'

Damion looked around, it had 5 minutes since he saw the Captain..he also noticed the rest of the crew starting to lag behind...glaring at the suroundings he shouted "Captain?"

Captain Saru

Saru heard a distant voice. "Captain?..."
She turned toward the voice. "Damion?" She noticed how far ahead she had gotten.
She leaned against a tree to wait.

Hearing the captain, he pushed foward in her direction..out of the cornor of his eye he noticed something dash through the trees ahead of him...Damion gripped both of his scimitars in his hands and continued towards the captain

Captain Saru

Saru heard a sound in the trees next to her. She drew her dagger and held it tightly in her right hand.
She could sense Riku's fear, and reached up with her free hand to hold him close to her chest in an attempt to comfort him while she waited for Damion.

Posted at: June 28th, 2006 08:38 pm (UTC)

Damion broke into a small clearing to see Saru's dagger aim at his chest...he let his scimitars move down by his side..he looked at at the dagger startled

Captain Saru

Saru quickly lowered her dagger.
"I...Uhh...Sorry..." She put it back in her sheath. "Where is everyone else?"

Turns to look through the trees..."Scattered"

Captain Saru

Saru looked around. "Well, I suppose the two of us should stick together." She started through the trees again.

Posted at: June 28th, 2006 08:45 pm (UTC)

Damion gripped his scimitars again and pushed foward with the captain..Jean-Luc squawked from his shoulder "I hear ya" Damion replied

Captain Saru

Riku continued chittering nervously.
"Shh...Easy, Riku..." She held him close to her chest.
She turned to Damion. "How much farther do we have to go?"

Posted by: thepurplehippo (Chris) (thepurplehippo)
Posted at: June 28th, 2006 08:51 pm (UTC)

Damion squawked the question to his companion who squawked back in reply..."Just past those trees" motions ahead of them and walks through them into the clearing

Posted at: June 28th, 2006 08:58 pm (UTC)

Saru followed Damion into the clearing. She looked around in awe. The village didn't seem very old, but it looked like it had been ravaged by something. She couldn't find any sign of other people.
"Let's get a better look around..."

Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:01 pm (UTC)

Damion pressed his teeth together and his knuckles went white..."after you"

Posted by: Captain Saru Vincent of the Angry Badger (spunkykitty)
Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:04 pm (UTC)

Saru wandered through the village. Some of the houses appeared as though they had been burned.
She peeked inside the nearest house. It was totally empty.
"Hmm..I guess we weren't the first outsiders here..."

Posted by: thepurplehippo (Chris) (thepurplehippo)
Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:07 pm (UTC)

"That doesnt make me feel better" Damion searched another house and found what appeared to be a smashed skull..."Charming"

Posted by: Captain Saru Vincent of the Angry Badger (spunkykitty)
Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:10 pm (UTC)

Saru gripped her dagger tightly as she searched the next house. This one, too, appeared to have been cleaned out. She spotted what appeared to be the bones of a child in the corner.
"What the hell happened here..."

Posted by: thepurplehippo (Chris) (thepurplehippo)
Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:11 pm (UTC)

Damion turned to go into another house when he heard a shriek come from the trees....he turned and his eyes met Saru's "the crew"

Posted by: Captain Saru Vincent of the Angry Badger (spunkykitty)
Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:14 pm (UTC)

"Shit..."
Saru ran through the trees to the source of the sound. Riku hid nervously behind her neck, under her long hair, holding on tightly to the collar of her coat.

Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:16 pm (UTC)

Using every curse he knew Damion dash afer her, slicing plants and branches with his diamond tipped scimitars...Jean-Luc squawked from above the tress

Posted by: Captain Saru Vincent of the Angry Badger (spunkykitty)
Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:21 pm (UTC)

Saru looked around frantically. "Dammit, I can't find them! Where the hell are they!?"
Riku jumped off of her shoulder and climbed into the nearest tree.
"Can you see them?" She shouted to him.
He pointed off toward a clearing, the jumped back onto her shoulder. Saru raced off in the direction that Riku had pointed out.

Damion struggled to keep up with the Cpt. "damn shes fast" he noticed Saru change directions and followed...he squawked at the hawk who replied then raced ahead

Captain Saru

Saru broke through the trees into the clearing. She looked around, but couldn't see anyone. "I thought you said they were here..."
She took a step forward and fell over something. She recognized it immediately as one of the swords from her ship. She looked around again. There were signs of a struggle, but none of her crew was in sight. She tried to stand up and move, but something was wrapped around her left foot.
She pulled put her dagger and tried cutting it off. But whatever it was, it held fast.
"Riku...Go find Damion...Quick!"

Posted by: thepurplehippo (Chris) (thepurplehippo)
Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:45 pm (UTC)

As Damion kept running he saw Riku leap out chattering crazily...he followed him into the clearing to see something grabbing Saru...growling Damion brought both of his scimitars down on the creature...the diamond edges sliced right through..

Posted at: June 28th, 2006 09:51 pm (UTC)

Saru pulled her leg back. "Thanks..."
Rubbing her ankle, she looked at the thing that had grabbed her. It was like nothing she had ever seen before, and she couldn't even think of a word to describe it.
Riku lept back onto her shoulder and nuzzled her ear. She scratched his head and stood up.
"The crew is gone."
