Early the following morning, Guild Invictus arrived at the docks to see off Dragan Ashlord and Kimura Taree . Their mission was to inform the Gatekeepers of the incursion attempt by the Flamebriar Monarch . The fate of the world would be decided by an existence beyond that of the Iron-Rank adventuring guild, Sol Invictus .

High-Captain Lang Hai agreed that it would be best to send the Calypso towards Bael Turath . The Elizabeth Dare and the other two Sea Wolf s.h.i.+ps would be enough to hunt for the slavers, the Saltspray Kings .

Tycondrius, Pale, the Lone Shadowdark, and even Levi Wolfrider accompanied their allies to see their departure .

\"We still thinkin\' Flamescars for the girl\'s development, Boss?\" Dragan asked with a grin . The \"new\" curved blade Dragan wore on his back was as tall as Lone .

Tycon nodded, \"The Flamescarred Martialists should be more suitable for the young lady\'s offensive fighting style . Why do you ask?\"

Dragan smirked, \"Ehh . I might have another idea . But it depends on what the girl wants . \"

Tycon pursed his lips, \"Agreed . Most conducive to growth is desire . Whether the girl wants to develop her Skills, her raw power, or even her paltry intelligence-- as long as she grows, so too will Sol Invictus . \"

Dragan saluted with his fist to his chest, \"Sounds good, Boss . \"

Tycon returned the salute, \"Where is that little whelpling, anyroad?\"

\"Ehehe,\" Dragan grimaced, \"It looks like she and Bucket got in a fight . She\'s already on the boat . \"

\"Tss . Of course, they did . \" Tycon scoffed, \"I\'ll reprimand the boy with some training . \"

. . .

Taree huddled behind a barrel, hugging her knees . She felt so betrayed . She still couldn\'t believe that Pale knew they were being sent on different missions and didn\'t tell her .

Stupid! Stupid stupid stupid! Why did she like such a stupid boy?!

A shadow loomed over her and her barrel, but Taree only curled up tighter .

\"Heyyyy . . . What\'cha doin\' there?\" Dragan\'s curious voice boomed .

\"Go away, Mister Dragan . . . \" Taree felt her own voice crack, sounding pathetic . She really didn\'t want to talk to anyone, so she buried her face in her knees .

The t.i.tanblood squatted down, his great height still towering over her, \"I know you\'re pretty upset right now, but you\'re not gonna see Bucket and the rest of \'em for a while . \"

Taree peeked her head out, revealing a pouty, tear-filled face .

Dragan gave a broad smile and offered the girl his humongous hand, \"You gotta say what you need to say, while you can say it, kid . \"

With some difficulty, Taree nodded and took Dragan\'s hand . She rushed to the railing to see Pale still on the docks-- the s.h.i.+p had lifted its anchor and it was beginning to sail away .

She cupped her hands over her mouth and yelled . Even though she cried and sobbed and sniffled and coughed, she needed to say everything she needed to say . She needed Pale to know how she felt .

Pale yelled back . . . but he was too far away and she couldn\'t hear his response .

She felt Dragan place a comforting hand on her back . She looked back to see the gentle t.i.tanblood nod stoically .

She hugged him and cried .

\"Mister Dragan?\" Taree asked .

\"What\'s up, kiddo?\" Dragan asked, as cheerful as ever .

\"I want to be strong . \"

The t.i.tanblood chuckled softly, \"I know . \"

\"Will you . . . help me?\" the silver-haired girl looked up, trying her best to keep the strength in her voice .

Dragan smirked, \"Y\'know, Boss had a plan for you to follow . And he\'s a real smart guy . Heh . And it probably won\'t be as painful or as difficult . \"

Taree hesitated . . . but only for a moment, \"I want to be stronger than anyone else . . . Stronger than Pale . . . Even stronger than you . \"

\"Hahaha!\" Dragan laughed, \"You serious? You with me, then? You can\'t change your mind after you decide . \"

Taree nodded, resolve clear in her eyes .

Dragan grinned, his eyes flas.h.i.+ng red with mana, \"Don\'t say I didn\'t warn you . \"

. . .

The rest of Guild Invictus sailed on the Elizabeth Dare towards the pirate base of the Saltspray Kings .

Tycondrius of Charm . Invictus Pale .

Lone Shadowdark and Levi Wolfrider .

The voyage was relatively uneventful . The Sea Wolves were incredibly adept at hunting large and varied fish for food . Tycon remained in good spirits .

The gentle rocking of the Elizabeth Dare inflicted Levi Wolfrider with a horrible nausea . Tycon a.s.sured him that the effects were temporary and he\'d grow used to it . . . That was what he hoped, anyroad .

In an ironic twist of fate, Pale, the prodigious spearman was . . . not good at being on a s.h.i.+p . The boy\'s sense of balance became nonexistent, and he constantly tripped and fell . Every time the Sea Wolves would cast their nets to catch fish, any fish that dropped onto the deck would somehow manage to bite him . He even dropped his water canteen overboard when a high wave splashed him and . . . only him .

The superst.i.tious Sea Wolves said that the sea G.o.d hated him .

Tycon was tempted to agree .

As for Tycon\'s experiences, he spent his days trying to decode Eilean\'s speech and playing games suitable for children with Rico . . . The girl was remarkably astute for a 3-year-old .

The Lone Shadowdark had become suspiciously good friends with the Sea Wolf Sergeant named Garret, a man who Tycon had previously identified as \'Hammer\' . Captain Lang Hai had informed Tycon that Garret was their newest, youngest Sergeant .

The two were rather alike, both of them being idiots . But if Sergeant Garret was capable of melting b.u.t.ter, he\'d rate the Sea Wolf as superior .

As the Elizabeth Dare sailed closer to the island identified on the map, Hai maneuvered the s.h.i.+p to approach with vision blocked by some steep cliffs . As they set anchor, the sun began to set off the starboard bow .

. . .

A team of Sea Wolf scouts climbed aboard the s.h.i.+p, dripping wet . A gaunt, familiar man with daggers strapped to his belt saluted Lang Hai .

\"Cap\'n . \"

\"Welcome back, Corporal Jacque . \" Hai nodded, \"Report . \"

The man saluted, \"Aye, Cap\'n . 3 frigates and 6 corvettes in port, a seventh corvette out in the waters-- probably as a scout . We spotted a walled camp and a fortified structure beyond . . . They\'re flyin\' the flag of the Seaspray Kings, Cap\'n . \"

Lang Hai whistled, \"If those s.h.i.+ps have full crews, we\'re looking at 1,500 men, at least . We\'ve got less than a third of that . \"

\"Is that a problem, Sea Wolf?\" Tycon smirked .

Hai scoffed, \"Tch . Yeah . We only need 3 kills per Marine? My men are gonna be bored . \"

He turned to Jacque, \"Good job, Corporal . Prepare a team . Two bells \'till dawn, I want every pirate on that scout s.h.i.+p dead . \"

\"Aye aye, Cap\'n,\" Jacque saluted before hurrying off .

\"Lieutenant,\" Hai called .

\"Here, Cap\'n!\" Eilean saluted sharply . Tycon was both surprised and respectful of the woman\'s sudden lack of coquetry .

\"Once dawn hits, I want to be on that beach while the tide is rising . Inform the men . \"

\"Aye aye, Cap\'n,\" the Sea Witch grinned .

\"Invictus?\" Hai looked up at Tycon, smirking derisively, \"You gonna help out? Not that it matters if you do or don\'t . \"

Tycon scoffed, \"Tss . Of course, we will . Lone Shadowdark, you\'re on the a.s.sault team . \"

Hearing his name, Lone suddenly began to pay attention, dropping a hand of cards onto the deck, \"Wait, what?\"
