Aerie asked, walking close behind him. So close in fact, Seth had nearly tripped a few times when she stepped on his heels. She had gripped the back of his jacket, her eyes gleaming brightly though the darkness. "I mean, I don't know this area all that well, but I don't think there was a forest on the road." Seth was feeling a bit worried himself, but he just grinned and threw his hands out in a shrug. "Don't be scared, Aerie, I know where we're going." "Yeah right.....and I'm *not* scared!" "Heh heh heh...." "Seth, you're lost....just admit it!" She squeaked. "I'm *not* lost!" Seth stopped between two trees. "I'm sure the road is just around here somewhere...." He looked up at the night sky. "Well, at least the full moon is out." Somewhere, an Arcanine howled long and deep. Seth felt a chill go down his spine, and he looked back to check if Aerie was still there. She had plastered herself onto his back. He chuckled. "What's so funny?" She grumbled. "Oh nothing, my fearless beauty," Seth laughed. Aerie narrowed her eyes at him. "SIAN!" Slasher darted past them suddenly. "AAAAAAHHH!!!" Aerie blinked and staggered back a bit. Seth had jumped into her arms like a frightened toddler. "Err.....Seth, it was only Slasher." She gave him an evil grin. Seth turned a bright red. "I knew that.....but hey, now you have me right where you want me!" He smiled sheepishly. "Oh brother..." Aerie dropped Seth to the ground with a plop. "Ouch!" Seth jumped up. He put his hands behind his back and slid sideways from Aerie. "I wonder if Mimic has inflicted food poisoning yet..." He grinned. "Siann....." "Seth...." "Okay, okay..." "Akane....oh, Akane....!" Someone wailed off in the distance. Seth, Aerie, and Slasher stared off into the darkness as a lone figure stumbled past. They looked at each other. "Surely it's not *that* bad," Seth sweatdropped. He continued onward, pulling Aerie behind him. When the ground beneath his feet became softer, he realized that they had walked onto a beach. Not too far away surf broke softly onto shore. His eyes shone. "We made it!" "Where?" Aerie blinked. "Um....out of the forest!" Seth grinned weakly. "At least we can see where we're going now. In fact, I think Maiden's Peak isn't too far from here!" "What about Mimic?" "Err....." Seth thought for a moment. "Well, we can find him tomorrow. Let's just rest here for the night and continue on tomorrow." He settled onto the warm sand. Aerie cuddled against him and quickly fell asleep, as did Seth. Meanwhile, Slasher lay curled on the sand, watching the waters....
