Road to Pyre
Roisin and the others had left the marshlands a few days back and were now making their way across the Tycairn Steppe, in the distance, on a platform above a huge volcano stood Pyre Academy, with the city of Raryst built at the base of the great volcano.
Sebastien was following the group, with his hands still bound. Dex walked close by him to make sure he didn't try anything. Roisin lead the way across the great Steppe. No villages or towns lay ahead on the huge plains. Small islands floated above the Steppe, some of them had waterfalls draining down into rivers that ran across the Steppe, there was a motorway on the far eastern edge of the Steppe, leading to the city.
"What do you think will happen when we get there?" Ashe asked.
"Hmm, no doubt Pyre has a plan for us. Wynd wouldn't have sent us here without a reason" Dex said, keeping a hand on a small blade he had attached to his belt.
"I wouldn't trust Pyre if I was you, the man is power mad. Likely wants to use Roisin" Sebastien replied.
"Quiet" Dex snarled.
"Why specifically me, huh?" Roisin said, turning to face Sebastien.
"I... uh" Sebastien fumbled.
Roisin marched up to Sebastien and grabbed his face.
"What do you know about me?" Roisin growled, her eyes turning red.
"Nothing... I, uh" Sebastien looked into Roisin's eyes. "Okay, I'd heard rumours about, your power, something that happened in a store in Ishtall?" Sebastien sighed. Roisin let go and grunted.
"You best not be lying" She said as her eyes returned to their natural colour. Roisin turned back around and continued walking ahead.
A rumbling echoed overhead, as a single Araneian Airship flew overhead. Aboard sat Lotte, she went to land the airship nearby.
"Be ready" Roisin said, as she drew her Celestial Crossbows, the airship settled down just ahead of them. The team readied their weapons. The airship door slowly opened and Lotte exited with her hands up.
"I come in peace" She chuckled.
"Huh, a Hubun?" Dex smiled.
"Ah, you must be Dex" Lotte grinned. "Atlas told me all about you..." She smiled.
"Uncle Atlas?! He's alive?" Roisin asked, excitedly.
"Indeed he is, I think..." Lotte nodded.
"You think?" Roisin asked.
"Well, I had to leave him in a tight spot, fighting the new Empress..." Lotte admitted, scratching her head. "I'm sure he survived though, you know what Atlas is like" She assured Roisin.
"I hope so..." Roisin sighed.
Lotte scanned the party and noticed Sebastien.
"Hmm, Atlas never mentioned him..." Lotte said, approaching Sebastien.
"He's apparently from Wynd Academy, a final year, who survived the fall of Terrana" Dex said.
"I see... interesting" Lotte nodded.
"I came to assist, but they don't trust me" Sebastien replied. Lotte span back around and headed to the airship.
"Come on, I'll give you all a lift." Lotte smiled.
Rychard and Skylar Pyre were stood in the Skyward Hall, the place in Pyre Academy where the school would assemble. A great window sat at the focal point of the room, which looked down into the active volcano below, red banners adorned each side of the room, bearing the symbol of Pyre, a flaming sword.
The Airship landed outside Pyre Academy, the school was currently closed for holidays, so the grounds were silent, a fountain sat in the centre of the courtyard, a mix of magma and water flowed through it. Roisin exited the airship and stretched.
