Rai walked along the edge of the path paying attention to the forest nearby. He hoped no monsters would venture out. But of course, the world loved to prove him wrong. Monsters did attack them. From all sides. "Shi.t!" Rai summoned his scythe, he looked at the monsters. "This is too much."
"Fly, fly, birds whom sing, dismantle each thing, spare only me, spare the Reaper, spare Anna Lee though for I can only see her!" Eliza then collapsed as a swarm of giant demonic birds attacked.
Rai saw the necromancer go down, "some necromancer you are." He muttered as he fought spun his scythe around and killed the monsters.
Eliza didn't know what happened, what went wrong. Something happened, why couldn't she complete it correctly? What on earth went wrong? Someone was messing with her, hurting her spells. She woke up in a second not knowing what happened. She then had reality click back to her as she touched the ground to let arms started to rise. She hoped nothing would go wrong this time.
Rai saw Eliza rise slowly, for that moment a bird plucked at him and Rai shot his hand forward releasing a stream of electricity. The bird the fried. Rai palmed the ground and sent a shockwave around him sending birds flying. He ran towards Eliza, "what's taking you so long to come back?"
"I-I don't know. Something is wrong." Eliza said, "I didn't cast a protection spell and someone tried to.. Forget it." She muttered then a few souls surrounded them, taking out any remaining monsters.
"someone?" Rai asked. He silently thought to himself, "it couldn't be... No not him. Not Bane."
"Who?" Eliza asked, slightly confused. "Enlighten me please."
Rai explained to Eliza, "Bane is the right hand man of the Demon King/Satan. Bane is also known as Lucifer."
"Oh lovely. Perks of forced traveling with Mr. Grim." She said standing up to look around at the monster parts.
"Would you prefer to die a heroic death?" Rai asked.
"No. I'd prefer not to die at all." Eliza said walking around slightly. "Now what exactly is the backstory behind him?"
"Bane?" Rai asked, "angel from heaven, fell to earth. Hates humans.... and oh, what else?... Ah, a century ago I imprisoned him back in Pandemonium."
"That last part seems important. Way to go." Eliza said then looked at her hands. What had she gotten herself into?
Rai chuckled, "perhaps you'll survive necromancer." He prefered it that way, no people dying even though their souls lived on. Rai shuddered slightly, there were beings that consumed souls...
"Ha." Eliza snapped. "So what's he want with you now it you can't die?"
"He wants to tear my soul away," Rai scoffed, "he's being stupid and childish, I am the master of souls and soul techniques. He cannot take my soul."
"Okay, so um, not to seem self centered but... He wouldn't like kill me right? Just for associating with you? For if I die then its on your back." Eliza said though it wasn't a joke.
"I thought you were a necromancer." Rai mocked Eliza. "Necromancers know how to control souls that's why they don't die because they control their own souls from being taken to the soul world. Well, Bane might kill you because even the most skilled necromancer would have a hard time just keeping his/her soul from being taken away by Bane." Rai shrugged.
"Smart-a.ss" Eliza huffed, "and he could still burn my body. That would kill me."
