Zeus wore his armor as h studied it, in traditional sense his armor could be categorized into Medium category armor as he waited for the remaining of his remainder of his team as one by one everyone arrived except Sylphy who was not present there as Azi spoke impatiently, "Where is Sylphy she is late?""I am here", came a bored voice followed by heavy footsteps as they looked they saw a figure clad in heavy armor heavier than even Tarsque's armor a large shield almost as tall as her chin along with a broad sword.

The Zeus and his group were taken aback as Sylphy spoke in an annoyed tone, "What?!"

Zeus shook his head as he spoke, "I thought you were an archer or thief by the weapons you used?"

The woman scoffed at that as she spoke, "I did not trust your group as such I dressed as such to dupe you all in case you decided to betray us and if you cannot understand from the looks of my armor I am a tank."

Zeus waved his hand as he spoke with a small smile, "No need to worry about that, but I am glad that we have at least gained some form of trust.", while inwardly the trio simply sighed as they thought, 'This girl has issues.'

Zeus then turned towards others as he spoke, "Well let us leave I do not wish to make teacher wait for too long."

As they reached the courtyard, he found his teacher waiting for him on a carriage as they arrive his teacher gave a kind smile to him causing him to feel fear as she spoke, "Well please board the carriage we are late."

The word 'late' send shivers down his spine he knew something bad was about to happen as he was prevented from boarding the carriage, as Vessha turned towards him she spoke with a smile, "I hate being late child and you are late by a whole minute, something I will not tolerate, now for your punishment you will run behind us along the journey and if you thing you can weasel out of this punishment you will have another thing coming, now MOVE!!!!"

With that the carriage lurched forward as it moved a message flashed in his HUD.

[QUEST ALERT:

Reward: Safely reach the quest area

Failure: a) Failure to keep up will lead you get lost in the desert leading to possible death.

b) Used as a living bait by Vessha ]

Zeus let out a startled cry as he ran after the carriage as the loud insane laughter of Vessha could be heard.

Azi approached Vessha as she spoke, "Excuse me commander, but aren't you a bit harsh with him?"

Vessha looked at her confused as she spoke, "No I am not, and in fact I am thinking about uping his training."

Everyone looked flabbergasted at that as Tarasque spoke, "But he will not survive it."

Vessha shrugged at that as she spoke, "Well then I will give you bronze coin to pay for his burial service."

BlizzardQueen: "With all respect to you commander why are you pushing him so hard? Is he in some kind of danger?"

Vessha pursed her lips for a few seconds as her face turned to a scowl before she replied to her with a sigh, "Zeus is a cautious child, he took a route which would take at least twice the amount of time normal one does not only that the route he took was a haphazard one making it hard for enemies to track you in fact by doing so he saved you lot from your doom."

At that everyone was curious as Sylphy spoke, "What do you mean by that?"

Vessha let out a deep sigh as she spoke, "The group who I told you is at war with us had been antic.i.p.ated your arrival for a long time but the lost track of you."

BlizzardQueen frowned at that as she spoke, "But how do you know that?"

Vessha gave a coy smile as she spoke, "Why would I know that my dear after all it is my job know what my enemy thinks or does."

Tarasque spoke with a frown, "It means you have a spy in that group, which also means the reverse is also true."

Vessha gave a dark glare at that before she spoke, "Try to be a bit discreet next time you thrice d.a.m.n party p.o.o.per."

Tarasque let out a nervous chuckle at that as Vessha continued speaking, "The Church who send you here also has two factions one who despises him because of his predecessor stating that a mortal has no business being married to a G.o.ddess and believe him as a heretic and the other well they consider him a Hero for his role during the war."

Sylphy frowned as she spoke, "Troublesome is there a place where he is safe?"

Vessha smiled at that as she spoke, "Of course as long as he can grow stronger than them."

BarbarianLady looked at her as she spoke seriously, "And what is your angle in all this? What did you wish to gain from using him?"

Vessha gave them a smirk as she spoke in a sing song tone, "Now that would be telling."

The others growled at that as Vessha spoke in mocking tone, "Dear no matter how angry you seem to be what can you weaklings do, oh well accept abandoning the poor boy to his fate and running away, nothing not a thing but I can help him of course everything has a price, which he will be paying. If you wish to test your luck I will even let you complete the quest given by Cardinal Boudier and you will understand that I will be the one who will shelter you lot, so little girl if you are afraid now cut any or all relationship you have with Zeus and forget about him completely, but if you stay with him like a good friend you will be pleasantly surprised at the end.", with that Vessha vanished from their sight.

Azi took a deep breath before she spoke, "It seems we are in quite the pickle right? Well if you all wish to leave him you may and if you are afraid we will leave you high and dry I swear on my family name and honor we will help you regardless you have my word."

They did not have to wait much longer as Vessha arrived with an exhausted Zeus on her shoulder whom she dropped on the seat adjacent to her before she spoke, "Rest and regain your stamina.", with that she forcefully shoved a vial of potion on his mouth.

A few more hours later they were standing in front of a cave, with various warning signs written around it as they neared they could hear the whistling sound as Vessha spoke with a chesire grin on her face, "Welcome younglings, welcome to the whistling cave a place where we send our young ones to conquer as the right for pa.s.sage into adult hood."
