“Welcome young [Aether Bladist]!”
The moment Hydra entered the tree house, a soft elegant voice reverberated through his ears. A sound so lovely he nearly forgot to look towards the origins of the voice and stood there dumbfounded. He was only able to react when the three behind him also entered and because Hydra was blocking the door a slight tap pushed him forward waking him up for him stupor.
Now that he awoke although the voice was still echoing within his mind, he was able to slightly calm his heart. He looked towards the beautiful woman in front of him. She was the epitome of beauty, as her the most noticeable trait about her was her long ever flowing platinum blonde hair. Although it didn’t reach the floor, it was still longer than her buttocks. The smoothness was void of knots and looked to have been carefully combed every single day for an entire lifetime. To compliment her beautiful white hair was a her jade smooth skin that caused any woman to be envious of. Although a pale complexion because everything about her was slightly pale it only gave an impression of delicacy and elegance.
Her beautiful silverish eyes stared straight into Hydra’s soul as if he was uncontrollably being drawn towards this elf. He was unable to refute that she was the most beautiful person he had ever seen before. As she began to smile at Hydra’s stupefied expression, it was a calming smile that would calm any tense atmosphere, and even Cline felt his strong-willed heart soften and beat a bit harder. Unfortunately only someone like Falcon was able to be unaffected by such beauty as for him, the only importance was a strong woman, and not someone delicate like this elf. If Falcon was to choose a woman it was be Valeria, not that Valeria who was still staring at Pan would know any of this. Of course Valeria at the same time also worshipped the strong and to her the strongest man was without a doubt Hydra.
After smiling, the elf didn’t speak and only calmly waited for Hydra to react first. Although she had said [Aether Bladist], Taye at this moment was slightly surprised. In fact within his mind he was more than just surprised. He had heard about the man Irina had travelled with and respected him as a fellow warrior. But as Irina had only just returned he hadn’t heard all of the details naturally the [Aether Bladist] was not one of those. Although this was the most important detail, what Taye respected was strength like many other warriors, and without it even if Hydra was an [Aether Bladist] it would be nothing more than a title!
Irina all this time had said nothing and stood silently at her mother’s side without glancing at Hydra. She made no effort to do anything other than pet Pan. To Hydra this was truly strange as he originally thought she was a carefree girl. However, in his mind a sudden flash of realization came to him, as he figured the reasoning she was so carefree and vibrant was maybe because here in her hometown she was unable to act freely!
However as the silver-haired elf was still waiting Hydra naturally couldn’t allow her to wait any long and spoke up.
“It is my honour to meet you, I am Hydra, may I ask for you name?”
The silver-haired elf delicately lifted arm her arm and changed her position to that of a more relax standing. This movement caused everyone’s body to shudder as every detail was made with a perfected movement like dancing. Although her position was only slightly changed it was still able to move the hearts of everyone hear and finally after finishing she spoke out.
“My name is Lixiss, it is also my honour to meet you as well young Hydra. Now, although I’m sure you are anxious to find out my daughter’s secrets, let’s save that after you clean up. It is still some time until dinner and I imagine after walking for so long you must be tired and will want to clean off your bodies. We have the best springs and even the water will allow you to become stronger just by bathing. Please enjoy yourselves, and until then I will retire to my chambers.”
“I thank you for you offer, I am indeed quite tired and dirty.”
Hydra tried his best to sound noble as he spoke to Lixiss, as for the first time in his life he felt he was in the presence of a queen. Little did Hydra know that was exactly what she was! Although Hydra had been in the presence of a Goddess that was simply at the very start of the game and was only a few moments. Hydra was too excited about playing [Second Saga] to care about anything else! Now that he saw Lixiss with an aura so delicate yet so noble he was unable to help but talk with his most formal speech he could muster.
But thankfully Lixiss didn’t mind any formalities infact she liked the current Hydra more and although she didn’t show that a smile could be seen on her face as she walked further into the house. Now that Lixiss was gone, Taye fully knowing it was now his responsibility to direct them, he walked back out of the house where as the group soon followed after.
Irina was left there alone, although not entirely alone because Pan was still with her and upon seeing her slightly complicated expression, he cried out softly.
“I’m okay Pan….. I just hope Hydra will forgive me…”
Pan fully knowing that his family member was troubled at this moment nestled his body tightly into Irina’s bosom and wrapped his three tails delicately around her arms, only enough that she could feel the endless amount of softness they contained.
“That’s right! I can’t be discouraged. I’ll make sure to pay this debt and I think I know just the way!”
Irina after being softly encouraged by Pan grinned happily after she thought of a few things.
“OOOOOOOOOOOOOH IT’S HEAVENLY!”
At this moment Hydra was bathing in a nicely steamed hot spring. The water was so perfect that a steam cloud covered the surroundings hiding his surroundings. Although if one could see they would notice Hydra was currently outside bathing in the bowled out stump of a giant tree. As it was an amazingly comfortable spring that released all the tension in his muscles that was not the only thing it did for Hydra!
|You entered the [Springs of Purity]!|
|Due to the muscles relaxing and purging of impurities, STR has increased by 5!
Due to exhaustion being released and calming of the mind, INT, FTH, WIS have increased by 5!
The water has begun to strengthen your body and STM has increased by 10!
“Wow! This is truly an amazing spring! As expected of the elves!”
At this very moment, while Hydra was enjoying bathing by himself, because Taye had felt it was important for Hydra to take some time to himself and relax he was offered a bath to himself. Although the other three men had found this sort of strange Hydra wasn’t bothered and took the free bath after all he wasn’t used to bathing with other men and it was indeed awkward to suddenly bath together with them. Of course this was before they had split up and Valeria had over heard and seen exactly where Hydra was going to bathe. Little did Valeria and the rest know that Taye had some plans set up for himself! The moment Hydra left, he had already secretly whispered something in the air.
A chance had arrived for Valeria and she was currently walking to that set direction that Hydra was supposedly bathing at. After finally arriving she noticed it was too steamy to clearly see and the only thing she was able to notice was a figure in the bath soaking in the water. She had already grabbed her leaf towel from the maid elves before they had entered the bathing springs, and naturally now that she saw the ‘figure’ of Hydra she was nervously undressing!
She let down her done up bun and as she did as if finally being released from imprisonment he swooshed downwards. Her hair gave off a feeling of thickness however this thickness only showed its entire beauty as the firmness of the hair allowed for a more brilliant shine. Of course while Valeria was nervously undressing and showing her exquisite figure covered only by a leaf towel, she was also excited, first because she was a woman and bathing and keeping clean was severely important to them as she always wanted to look her best no matter the circumstance. Although someone who works in the underworld taking care of her body was still of the highest importance!
Thus her eyes were shining with anxiousness as she slowly tipped toed without a sound towards the bath! After she finally arrived just behind the figure but not close enough to see it fully she called out in a seductive voice.
“Lord Hydra, shall I scrub your back?”
“Shall I scrub your back”
These were the only words Hydra was able to hear. After he had noticeably fallen into a trance after entering the bath it was as if nothing else mattered in the entire world. However how could Hydra not hear such an elegantly beautiful voice? As soon as he heard it he was awoken from his trance immediately only to enter another trance from this voice. He knew the owner of the voice! Of course he did it was none other than the elf Lixiss!
Her voice was able to calm any man’s heart and the next moment it would be beating faster again only from the slight sound of her voice! The most important part was the fact that Hydra still didn’t register that he was in the bath and Lixiss had offered to scrub his back!
Finally realizing what had happened Hydra jumped up from his seating position and ran towards the other end. Naturally he didn’t dare turn around toward the voice and tried his best to cover his important parts! As he was too startled he had entirely forgot to grab the leaf towel as he ran, or attempted to run in the water. At this sight Lixiss only chuckled and spoke out.
“My, what a cute behind.”
Hydra flushed red! He now remembered the scene of when Sarah saw him and now another situation was happening again except it was with an Elf! Somehow he was slightly happy but at the same time the crimson colour not from the heat of the water coloured his face even deeper.
“Lixiss.. may I ask what you’re doing here!?”
Hydra anxiously replied to Lixiss’ teasing voice, and although it was teasing it was still lovingly beautiful. She only brought her hand to her face and chuckled lightly.
“Of course to wash your behind!”
Hydra’s mouth was closing and opening constantly he had no idea how to respond to such a thing but before he could Lixiss spoke out again.
“I am only teasing! I just came here to have a nice chat alone with you…. although not the best place I did get a nice reaction out of it.”
‘Why are all the incredible females I meet so teasing? Scratch that, I now know exactly why Irina is like she is!
As Valeria gathered her courage to speak up, the figure jolted up immediately and grabbed her.
‘He’s so forceful!’
Never could Valeira had imagined that Hydra would take her so willingly and forceful like this, however she was even slightly happy about such an outcome. However such an outcome immediately was broken the moment she realized who truly had grabbed onto her!
“What are you doing here?!”
Irina spoke out in an angry voice! Her glare was straing needles into Valeria and although Valeria knew Irina was important to Hydra and Pan, as a woman she was not going to lose here!
“Naturally I am here to be of service to my Lord! what are you doing here?!”
“I.. I.. I’m here cause I want to be!”
“You mean you’re here to try to curry favour with the Lord?!”
“N…No you’re wrong why would I do such a thing?!”
“Then why are you covered in a leaf towel in this bath that was supposed to be Lord Hydra’s?!”
“I…… Wait! How can you even be of service to Hydra!? Who are you to Hydra anyways?!”
The constant yelling and shouting went back and forth. The tinge of redness covered their faces as the conversation kept going. Although they were both extremely embarrassed they were unwilling to give up! They were both strong willed woman and had both had their hardships in life, naturally they were not about to give the other the edge! The arguments continued and after a while even flailing and fighting began as they tumbled into the spring water and fought!
Meanwhile, Pan was currently swimming in that exact bath.
