Chapter 286 Mystical Lake 2 uneditted

"Y-Your majesty!" Tricia came running in alarm. "I-I am glad you are safe. Something is not normal." She said in concern.

"What is going on, do you know Tricia?" I asked worriedly. Tricia shook her head in reply.

"I came out to get some water to drink and saw Sir William walking in a daze as well." Tricia said. "I tried to shake him awake but to no avail."


 
I was alarmed of what was happening. This is no ordinary sleep walking. Knowing that all the men in the group was walking in one direction, and with William and Regaleon nowhere to be found, I must do something.

My heart was beating faster every second while trying to find Regaleon in the vicinity. The poor lighting was not helping me, what little light that came from the moon was blocked by dark clouds from the sky. The fire in the fireplace started to dwindle down.

’This is not normal.’ I thought to myself. The hair on my arms stood in attention, as if confirming my suspicions.

"Y-Your majesty... what are we going to do?" Tricia was also visibly shivering.

The temperature was starting to drop beyond normal. Summer has already begun and with our location, this place should not get this cold this time of the year.

"You probably need to stick close to me just in case, Tricia." I told her.

If my hunch is correct, this phenomenon that is happening now is not normal. There should be an external force doing this.

"First, I need to make fire." I said and Tricia nodded.

I took tree branches that were lying on the ground. I tear a piece of cloth from the bottom of my night wear and tied it at the tip of the tree branches and ignited it with my magic.


 
"There, now we have some torches to light up the way." I exclaimed and gave Tricia one of the torches.

"Wow, you really are amazing your majesty." Tricia looked at me in awe and I giggled with her reaction.

I only remembered that Tricia has not yet saw me using magic. She knew about my magic powers, but she has not yet seen me ever using it when we were together in Alvannia.

"First, let’s see where the sound is coming from." I said. "It looks like that direction where the men are walking to is where the sound is originating."

"What sound?" Tricia looked at me curiously. It was as if she did not know what I was talking about.

"You mean, you can’t hear the sound of a woman humming a song?" I asked un disbelief.

Tricia shook her head in reply. "I can’t hear anything of the sort your majesty. Actually, it is eerily silent tonight. The silence is really frightening."

’So, I am the only one hearing this sound.’ I thought to myself.

When I was deep in thought, I felt something fury brushed my leg. The sudden feeling surprised me and made me jump.

"Ahhh..." I shrieked lowly. When I looked down ready to pounce anything that looked like danger, I saw Snow sitting on the ground wagging her tail. I was relieved to see her.


 
"Don’t shout." Snow said in annoyance. "Those creatures might hear you."

"T-t-t-t-t...the cat talked!" Tricia who has never heard Snow talk looked pale in fright. I held on to her just in case she was to faint with shock.

"Tricia, breath..." I told her. "It is Snow, you know her right. She is my familiar, hence she has special abilities that a normal cat does not have."

Tricia was breathing heavily but I can see that she was trying to calm herself. I also patted her back to help her.

"I need you to be conscious and alert, so do not faint in surprise okay." I tried to tell her. "There are many things that cannot be explained, and I bet what happening right now is one of them. We can be in danger."

Tricia inhaled and exhaled and started to calm down. "I understand your majesty. I am the only one conscious right now that can help you. Please, let me know what I can do." She showed a face of determination.

"That is good to hear." I replied and then looked at Snow. "Snow, tell me the details."

"The bad and omnimous vibe I was feeling a while ago turned into malicious intent fast." Snow said. "At first, I just thought it was something harmless, like ghost and spirts hunting the forest."


 
"G-ghost...?" Tricia gulped. But I can see that she was fighting her fear that is very admirable.

"Ghost exists?" I was also curious because I have never seen one before.

"In a sense, yes. But let us get back to topic." Snow said in annoyance that the topic was derailed. "The creature that is making this sound is something that I, myself have never encountered before. They are creatures that exists in the ancient times. If I am correct, there were writings about them in the ancient books that you have been reading back in Jennovia."

I was deep in thought about Snows words. If this creature exists in ancient times, then that was before the Almighty One had ventured into this continent and had founded the country. According to the ancient books I have read, before the Almighty One arrived from the land beyond the sea, this continent was home to creatures and monsters. This said beings outnumbered the humans that were living in this continent back then, and they were hunted as food by this said creatures. When the Almighty One arrived, he helped the humans get rid of the said monsters and turned the tide.

"Are you saying that an ancient creature survived unto this day and is causing this?" I asked in disbelief. "But the books said that the Almighty One annihilated these monsters that plagued the humans that lived here. That was why he was given the name ’Almighty One’ after helping the humans get rid of these creatures."

The books have hailed the Almighty One as the hero that saved the humans in this continent. A long time has passed since the time of the Almighty One and there were no sightings of these said creatures, as far as I know.

But the southern woods were vast and the vegetations are thick. There were villages found inside these woods, but still they were small and as I know villagers never ventured outside the woods when night came.

’If Jack were here, I could have asked him of his Crimson Bandits have ventured these woods.’ I thought.

The southern woods have not been explored fully, maybe only twenty percent of this vast place could be said that we humans have ventured and explored. It was possible that these ancient creatures had hidden in the depths of the woods, or there were hidden places that they could use as habitat while hiding form human sight.

"So, we are up against an ancient creature that we do not know of." I said in contemplation. "That means we need to tread carefully."

We are up against an unknown creature and currently I am in a tight spot in this situation. All the men were either gone or in a daze and walking to a specific direction. The only sane people left were me and Tricia. Snow was thankfully back after her frightened state a while ago, and then I remembered Tempest.


 
I looked up at the black sky. I cannot even see the stars because of the dark clouds hovering above us. I put my fingers on my lips and whistled.

*WHISLTE*

I remember Regaleon telling me that if I was in a difficult situation and he was not around, I can call Tempest by whistling and ask for help.

Not long, I heard the flapping of wings and saw a big bird swooping down from the sky. I stretched my out and not long, Tempest perched on it.

"You called, my lady." Tempest asked. "I can see that something eerie is happening around here. If just stayed and did not leave I should have known something was wrong. I am sorry."

"I too have done the same things and left after feeling the bad vibe earlier." Snow said. "I am also partly to blame. As your familiar, I should have been here and stayed. I apologize."

Our two familiars were feeling guilt for leaving when we needed them. I cannot blame them for what they have done. They were still animals that felt fear and can flee in instinct.

"I do not blame you two so do not worry. I am sure Regaleon will not blame you as well." I tell them to ease their guilt. "But I need the two of you now. We must find Regaleon and the others. I am afraid they are in danger."

We were the only ones that were left while the others have gone to the direction of the lake. I am sure that the origin of that sound can be found there. To rescue the others, I will need Tempest and Snow’s help more than everything. I am confident with my magic abilities, but without knowing anything about my opponent, it was like marching into battle blind. Tricia does not have any fighting skills as well, so I can only rely in these two when a fight occurs.

"We are always here to help our masters." The two familiars said in unison.

Snow stepped back and white light flashed around her.

*SWISH*

Snow has now turned into her white tiger form. Tempest on the other hand took flight. Red light engulfed his body while flying upwards.

*SWISH*

Tempest has turned into his red phoenix form.

I looked at the direction of the lake with determination etched in my face.

"I will get my husband and the others back safely." I said full of determination.

Chapter 287 The Siren’s Call 1

"We are always here to help our masters." The two familiars said in unison.

Snow stepped back and white light flashed around her.

*SWISH*

Snow has now turned into her white tiger form. Tempest on the other hand took flight. Red light engulfed his body while flying upwards.

*SWISH*

Tempest has turned into his red phoenix form.

I looked at the direction of the lake with determination etched in my face.

"I will get my husband and the others back safely." I said full of determination.


 
When I looked around, it was eerily quiet. The few men that we saw walking slowly in a daze were now nowhere to be found. A mysterious fog has started to envelope around the lake. It was thick that we can only see a few feet in front of us.

"Tempest, can I lend your eyes for a bit?" I asked.

"As you wish, my lady." Tempest replied.

As I recall, as Regaleon’s familiar, Tempest was connected to him in a different way. I remember Regaleon telling me that he can see what Tempest can see if they were in sync. This was a feature Tempest has a familiar.

"I will make a temporary contract with you for now so that I can lend your abilities." I said.

Tempest was towering over me. He bowed down his head to come closer to me. I outstretched my arms and held his head carefully. Slowly, our foreheads connected to each other and I started to connect with him. This was the way how I can forge a temporary contract with other familiars. With the permission of the familiar, someone that had magical abilities with high aptitude can forge contracts with beast. Beast that have masters can also forge temporary contracts with other magic users like what I was doing right now. Being connected with the temporary contract, I can use his abilities that only he can lend to Regaleon.


 
"Now fly to the sky and help me see what is beyond this fog." I said.

Tempest took a step back and flapped his huge wings. The fog that was around us was blown away with his ascent, but it still came back after Tempest has flown up.

"So, I cannot use my magic to blow this fog away." I realized.

I thought of using wind magic to blow the fog away, but with what just happened I knew the fog will just return.

"This is really no ordinary fog." I concluded.

"What can I do to help, your majesty." Tricia was standing close to me.

I looked at Tricia, deep in thought. I knew that Tricia was not a warrior or a fighter. Taking her with me will be dangerous but leaving her here without any certainty that she would be safe was more dangerous.

I am sure that the ancient creature that Snow was talking about is at the direction of the lake, but I did not know what other dangers there are in these woods. There might be other ancient creatures that I do not know of lurking in the darkness.

"It would be best to stay with me Tricia." I replied. I saw a sword belonging to the men in our group lying nearby the tent. "Here, I am not sure if you know how to use it but the basic is just to thrust the pointy end to an enemy." It was an odd advice, but I do not have the time to teach her how to use a sword.


 
"I-I understand your majesty." Tricia nodded and took the sword.

"Snow, I will count on you to guard our rear." I ordered.

"You can count on me." Snow replied.

"Okay then, let us survey the surroundings first." I said and closed my eyes.

I concentrated with my eyes closed and in no time, I was connected to Tempest’s eyes. I slowly opened my eyes and saw what Tempest saw.

"Y-Your majesty... your eyes." Tricia said with a startled voice. "It is the same as that big birds."

"That just means that their temporary contract was a success." Snow said. "Alicia can now see from above. Tell us what you can see."

Using the link with Tempest, I saw the clouds in the sky. It was like I am the one flying, it was a thrilling feeling. The vision slowly looked down below. His eye view was wide, and I saw the vast trees in the vicinity. The clearing that was near the lake was covered with thick fog. As I can see, the fog only reached until the edge of the woods and only filled the clearing.

’So, this fog was concentrated in the clearing.’ I concluded.

At the center of the clearing, I can see the lake. The lake was clear from the fog, and the clouds also have a large whole just on top. The moon was being reflected on the lakes surface. It was like a mirror in this view.

"Tempest, can you zoom in on the lake?" I asked.

’Yes.’ I heard Tempest reply telepathically because of our temporary link.

After that, my linked vision with him zoomed in on the lake. I can clearly see the edge of the lake and so the men of our group standing there in a daze. They were all looking at the center of the lake, as if their gaze were being glued to one thing.


 
I scanned the faces of the men standing and frantically searched for one man, my husband. I saw the familiar faces of the men I was traveling with. These were all fellow Atlantians that have magic abilities and have high aptitude in fighting, but they were powerless right now. Whatever was doing this is something new and we do not know of.

’Where are you, Leon?’ I desperately called out his name in my heart, hoping that I could find him.

And like a prayer being answered, I saw him at last. Regaleon was standing at the very edge of the lake. He was wearing the clothes he had before we slept, a white loose shirt and black pants. And just behind him was William. I sighed in relief, seeing them safe for now. Like the men we saw earlier, they were also in a daze. Their eyes were open, but it was lifeless, as if they were asleep with their eyes open.

"Tempest, can you focus on the center of the lake." I told him.

Tempest visions focused on the center of the lake. The men were all looking at that direction, and I suspected that whatever creature was doing this sound, it was found there.

At the center of the lake, I saw what seemed to be a large rock protruding the waters surface. On top of that I saw something that I only saw in the ancient books I have read. The creature had long blonde hair and its body was shaped like that of a woman. The only difference is that her lower part had a fish tail rather than two legs. I can clearly see the shiny scales of the fish tail reflecting the moonlight.

"Is that... a siren?!" I was surprised.

It was no doubt a half human woman and half fish, the typical description of a siren. Like the books have depicted them, the siren I saw had an upper body of a woman. They are said to be beautiful, to lure their intended prey, male sailors. These sirens are said to be living at the ocean depths. They use their beauty to lure in sailors, and if their face does not do the trick, they use their singing to put their prey into a trance. According to the testimonies of sailors that were able to survive siren attacks, the unknowing sailors that were under the siren’s trance are said to have beautiful dreams. And those that does not come out of this trance would die without knowing what happened.

’But why is a siren here inland?’ I wondered. ’I thought their habitat were in open seas.’

I can still hear the siren singing when her gaze shot up towards me in an instant. No, to correct it the siren’s gaze was directed to Tempest. The song ended abruptly, and I felt some kind of energy swirling from where the siren is.

"Tempest, be careful!" I warned Tempest.

My worries were confirmed when I saw the siren braced herself and shout towards the sky. The force of her voice sends huge sound waves towards Tempest. Luckily, he was able to dodge a direct hit, but the waves had thrown him off.

The strong sound we heard from the siren made our ears hurt like it was going to burst. It felt like my eardrums would bleed out. The three of us were covering our ears to ease the pain.

"Are you all okay?" I asked after the sound faded away.

"I-I guess so." Tricia replied.

"That hurt like hell." Snow replied while shaking her head.

Snow had more clear hearing, no wonder that kind of attack hurts more for her.

"Tempest, are you okay?" I asked worriedly.

It was silent for a while and my heart was thumping with worry.

’I am fine.’ Tempest said. ’But that creature... she knows we are here.’

"There was no helping it." I said. "We are in their turf. I bet surprise attacks will not do."

When my vision connected to Tempest once again, I saw the men of our group started moving towards the lake. I saw Regaleon stepped on the water and half of his body was submerged instantly. My heart was thumping hard knowing that my husband is in danger. By then I saw something in the water swimming. Not just one or two, but it was a group of sirens swarming around towards the men.

My mind just went blank. All that I could think of now is that I do not want the hands of those sirens anywhere near my husband.

"TEMPEST, BURN THE SURROUNDINGS!" I ordered.

When my vision connected to Tempest once again, I saw the men of our group started moving towards the lake. I saw Regaleon stepped on the water and half of his body was submerged instantly. My heart was thumping hard knowing that my husband is in danger. By then I saw something in the water swimming. Not just one or two, but it was a group of sirens swarming around towards the men.

My mind just went blank. All that I could think of now is that I do not want the hands of those sirens anywhere near my husband.

"TEMPEST, BURN THE SURROUNDINGS!" I ordered.

After my words, fire rained down from the sky. The fog that was so think quickly dissipated when the fire came into contact on the ground. Tempest wings were on fire, it was beautiful and majestic to look at.

Tempest was careful not to get anyone from our group in danger. The fire dissipated after it cleared away the fog. It also helped get the sirens to scrambled from fear.


 
"As I thought, they do not like fire." I said in triumph.

Sirens are creatures that live in water, therefore they do not want fire that can evaporate water and burn.

"Kyaaahhhh!!!" The sirens in the lake shrieked loudly. I pained our ears hearing such an agonizing scream.

"Dammit, my eardrums will burst." Snow exclaimed.

But the shrieking stopped after some time. When we gathered our bearings, I thought this was the chance to attack. I need to get this opportunity to get the men out of their trance.

"Tempest, use your fire on the lake!" I ordered him. "Snow, get Tricia on your back and let’s try to wake the others from this trance while Tempest deals with those sirens."

"On it." Snow replied. She shoved Tricia onto her back the next second.

"Aahh." Tricia shrieked lowly in surprise. She held onto Snow’s fur as to not get thrown out.

"Hold on tight, we are going to rush forward." Snow said.

After Snow’s words, both of us run towards the direction of the lake. After the fog cleared, we saw that the lake was not that far from where we were.

Once we arrived to where the men were, the first thing I did was to go to Regaleon’s side. Half of his body was already submerged under water. He was still standing in a trance even though the siren has stopped singing.


 
"Leon... Leon... Can you here me?" I shook his body, eager to wake him up. "It is not safe here, please wake up." I tried my best to wake him up.

"Sir William, please wake up." I hear Tricia who was just near where we were. Snow was also doing her part to wake up the others.

"Sh*t! This is not doing anything." I hear Snow curse.

I am sure she is getting frustrated. We are near the enemy’s territory, and it was not safe to stay here much longer. I too, was feeling frustrated. I shook Regaleon’s body so hard to no avail. He was still in a trance, eyes voice of any consciousness.

"Come on Leon, WAKE UP!" My frustrations got the better of me.

*SLAP*

I slapped Regaleon on his cheek so hard that the sound echoed around us. Tricia and Snow were both silent after seeing what I have done. I was so frustrated that tears began to go down my eyes.

"Regaleon please, wake up." I pleaded desperately. "I need you with me."

The tears have flowed down from my eyes. I was desperate to get my husband back.

"You can never wake him up." A very beautiful voice said. I was surprised to hear that it came from the center of the lake.


 
"Ahhhhhh!!!" A collection of voices shrieked so loudly that it was difficult to bear. I tried to block my ears with my hand.

The sound wave was focused on Tempest who was raining fire attacks from the sky. I looked in shock when I saw him being hit by the sound wave.

"Tempest!" I called to him loudly.

I saw his body coming down from the sky. His body fell into the dense trees and disappeared from my sight..

"Answer me, Tempest." I called out to him, but he was not answering.

"I never thought that there would be creatures with such powers other than us ancient ones." The beautiful voice said once more.

My eyes focused on where the voice came from. More than a dozen of sirens were bobbing their heads on the water’s surface, but on the rock at the center of the lake was the siren I saw from Tempest’s eyes. She had long blond hair shining under the pale moon light. She had a beautiful face and pale white skin that can enchant any men that gazed her. What frightened me, was her eyes that are amber in color and slit pupils. Her fish tail was gold like in color and was shimmering in the dark.

’She must be the leader of the sirens.’ I thought.

The other sirens were swimming around her as if to guard her if any danger befalls. The song a while ago was definitely from her.

"So, there were girls in the group as well." The siren said. "Pity that I do not like the taste of girl’s flesh."


 
There was a coldness that enveloped my whole body. I have been submerged under water for a little while now and my body was staring to shake from the cold. That was when I saw the fog starting to gather from the center of the lake once more.

"Sisters, kill those that are not in our menu for tonight." The siren said with a cold menacing tone.

The sirens on the water shrieked and swam full speed towards me. Their aim was me and not Regaleon at least, and so I swam at the other direction to not let my husband be in danger.

When I was at a safe distance, I froze the water in my vicinity and hopped out of the water. When the sirens were just a few feet away from me, I froze the water around me. Some of the sirens were caught of guard and was frozen with the water. The others reacted quickly and were able to retreat from my attack. Unfortunately, I cannot freeze the whole lake. I tried to tap in the power that I know that was in me, but the far that my powers got was just a few kilometers radius form my spot.

The sirens scrambled in surprise to what I have done. All of them looked afraid and kept distance away from me.

"This is... magic. Silver hair and eyes... you! Who are you?!" The siren with blonde hair shouted in anger. "You have the same features as that b*stard that have reduced us to this state!"

I was taken aback by the siren’s words. "What do you mean? I do not know what you are talking about." I replied.

"Don’t you dare deceive me!" The siren said in fury. Her beautiful face was distorted in anger and became hideous. "I Tenasia, the queen of the sirens has lived for more than century now. I remember the face of that b*stard that came into our land and wiped us, the rightful masters of this land into such a pitiful state. I remember his shining silver hair and eyes when he slaughtered our kind. I thought that his blood has died down after that foolish human war. To think that someone survived."

’So, she is the queen of the sirens.’ I thought.

Hearing siren queen’s word, I was now sure who she that ’b*stard’ she was pertaining to, it was the Almighty One. Like what I have heard, the Atlantian royal family were the descendants of the Almighty One. The royal family maintained the physical features of the Almighty One because of interbreeding and incest. The practice was made because they wanted the blood of the Almighty to remain pure inside the family and to make sure that the powerful magic of the royal family be maintained.

"I am not sure what you are talking about." I feign ignorance. "If you are talking about someone that lived a century ago, then of course I would not know. I am not as old as you." I said with a sarcastic tone.

One of the teachings that Regaleon had taught me in the art of fighting was to take the opponents anger to your advantage. Seeing that this siren queen is showing her anger because I have the same feature as the Almighty One, can become an advantage for me.

"Your tone is also similar to than b*astard." Tenasia screeched in anger. "Because of him we sirens lost our home in the seas. We, who were the hunter become the hunted. We did not have any other option but to hide inland where they cannot find us that easily."

My hypothesis is that this clearing was cloaked with an enchantment the sirens made. They will not let anyone come in without their permission. I think when they saw that our group consists mostly of men that they can enchant with their song, they have let us in willingly.

’We were just cattle for the taking.’ I thought with gritted teeth.

"I will have my revenge on you, the descendant of that b*astard." Tenacia said with a wicked smile. "you are just one little girl. It is your bad luck to have come here. KILL HER!"

*SHRIEK*

The sirens leaped from the water and was about to attack me from all directions.

*SHRIEK*

The sirens leaped from the water and was about to attack me from all directions. Their nails that looked like claws were all aimed towards me.

"ICE WALL!" I yelled and conjured ice using my magic.

I put up a thick ice wall around me to block the attacks coming my way and it was successful for the first part.

The sirens then used their shrilling voice. The thick ice I have conjured up cracked little by little.

’I cannot stay here for long.’ I said to myself.

The sirens are afraid of one, and that is fire. As a member of the royal family of Atlantia, I can use different kind of magic attributes. I particularly have high aptitude in ice magic, and that is why I use it in most cases. But today what I need to use is fire magic.

Regaleon was the one with high aptitude in this element. How I wish that he were conscious right now. I am sure he would know what to do in this kind of situation.


 
’Wake up Alicia.’ I scold myself. ’You are the only one that can do something right now. Snow and Tricia are doing their best fending off the other sirens that were threatening our group mates. For now, you are the only one that can help them.’

I gathered my thoughts and calmed myself down. I was amassing my magic and started to use the fire attribute.

At first, I made fire at my palms and then I started to spread them in my surroundings. The ice at the bottom of my feet started to melt together with the ice wall that I made. By then I started a huge blaze that covered my surroundings.

"FIRE BLAZE!" I conjured the strongest fire magic that I could. Fortunately, it did the trick. The ice I created melted and so I must use wind magic to propel myself up.

"Kyaaahhh!!!" The sirens around me wailed in agony with the heat of the blaze I have created.

I was surprised by using different magic attributes all at once. This was the first time I have ever use wind and fire magic at the same time.

’To think I can use wind magic to hover up in the air.’ I had a smile on my face.

I was flying just on top of the lake using wind magic. I was shaky at first, but I was able to get a hang of it, regulating the needed amount of wind to make me afloat and balance my body out.


 
"What are you waiting for, get her!" Tenasia screamed in rage.

The sirens that were on water looked up at me. They raised their hands and pointed right at me. Their nails that were freakily sharp got longer and then launched right at me like arrows.

’They can do that?!’ I was taken by surprise and use my wind magic to move myself. I was now flying freely in the sky.

Unfortunately, some of the nails that flew towards me grazed me on different parts of my body. My night wear that was already torn earlier were now in tatters. The scratches on my body started to bleed a little, but at least it was not a wound that I need to worry about.

"KYAAAAAAHHH!!!" I hear once again the piercing scream. It came from the queen of the sirens herself.

The sound waves were directed on me. I used my wind magic to dodges the sire queen’s attack. I was not hit head on, but the sound waves sent me flying out of balance. I crash landed hard by the lake side. My body rolled around the ground and the muddy covered my body.

When I was about to get back up, I was surprised that the sirens were lunging themselves right at me on land. I quickly moved back and use my fire magic to repel the sirens that were about to attack me.


 
"Fire balls." I shot the fire balls I made, and it hit the sirens that were about to attack me.

The sirens that I have hit dropped on the ground and their bodies wriggled. The other sirens that were able to dodge my fireballs were now on land. I saw their fish tails started to disfigure, and not long two legs emerged from what was once a fish tail.

"You can grow legs?!" I was shocked with this information.

I have not read this information in the ancient books that I have read. It is either that it was not written on the books that I have already read, or that this feature of the sirens was never known but any human back then. No wonder they were able to go inland and hide here in the southern woods. They can grow legs and feet and can blend with the humans being unnoticed.

The sirens were naked half body down, but they were not fazed by this. They started to run at me with their sharp nail like claws.

"This is no time to be in a daze." I snapped back to attention.

"Fire sword!" I conjured a sword using fore magic.

Using the fire sword, I parried the sirens attacks left and right, but I was clearly outnumbered. My only advantage is to get back up on air where the sirens cannot come near me.

"Wind cyclone!" I use wind magic around me and propelled myself back up into the air.

The sirens were using the attack from before and fired their nails towards me. I have anticipated such an attack and was able to deflect it with my wind magic.

"Wind barrier." I engulfed myself inside a barrier using strong winds.

All this magic that I am using was all new to me. The last time I had a battle was when I was escaping the Jennovia palace. We were up against soldiers of the queen that were out to kill me. But back then I was fighting alongside Jack and the others. Now, I am all alone and I can feel the pressure of this fight on me.

’Is that why I was able to make this different kind of magic.’ I thought.

And to think I can use different kinds of magic attributes at the same time was new to me. Together with wind magic that was helping me fly, I can also use fire magic to attack.

"Raining fire balls." I doubled the fire balls that I was able to conjure.

The fire balls that I was able to conjure hovered around me. I moved gestured my hand towards the sirens that were on the ground and the fire balls rained down on them.

"Kyaaaaahhh!"

"Uwaaahhh!"

I heard the shrieks of the sirens that were hit by the fire balls I have made. They were surely in pain. When the smoke cleared, I saw the bodies of the sirens lying down on the ground. Some that were able to dodge the attack pulled the bodies of their brethren back to the water.

I felt triumphant with this win. My enemies were running back to retreat. I was at least confident that I can save everybody. Snow and Tricia were also doing fine guarding our group mates. I can see the sirens that were attacking them also retreated in fear.

I looked around to see what my next move would be. Seeing that the men were still in trance, all I could think of is that it was the doing of the siren queen.

’If I want the men of our group to wake up, then what I need to do is to attack the siren queen and lift this spell.’ I thought.

When I looked around to see the center of the lake, the rock was vacant. The siren queen was not there. My hear was beating fast clearly because of agitation.

’Where is she.’ I searched frantically. ’I need her to undo this spell.’

But then what I saw shocked me the most tonight. Tenasia, the siren queen was standing on land with two legs. She looked like a normal human being with unparalleled beauty. What infuriated me was that she had her arms wiggling around Regaleon seductively. Anger rushed all over my body.

"Do you know how we reproduce?" Tenasia was caressing Regaleon’s face with her filthy hands. "We also mate with male humans. If we birth female, then they can change back and forth to human and siren. But if we birth a male, we make them our food. This particular male has great body and looks. It has been a while since I have mated with a human, and this one fits my standards."

I can feel rage swirling all over my body. "Get your filthy hands off my husband!" I shouted in anger.

Chapter 290 Hands Off my Husband! 2

Tenasia, the siren queen was standing on land with two legs. She looked like a normal human being with unparalleled beauty. What infuriated me was that she had her arms wiggling around Regaleon seductively. Anger rushed all over my body.

"Do you know how we reproduce?" Tenasia was caressing Regaleon’s face with her filthy hands. "We also mate with male humans. If we birth female, then they can change back and forth to human and siren. But if we birth a male, we make them our food. This particular male has great body and looks. It has been a while since I have mated with a human, and this one fits my standards."


 
I can feel rage swirling all over my body. "Get your filthy hands off my husband!" I shouted in anger.

"Oh, so this fine young man is your husband." Tenasia grazed her nail on Regaleon’s cheek. Her nail left a slight scratch and little blood oozed out from it.

Seeing the siren queen gave my husband a scrape angered me even more. Just seeing her touch Regaleon made my blood boil. The air around me started to become turbulent. My emotions are making my powers even much stronger than before. But unlike the last time where I lost control, I feel that I can use this power while maintaining consciousness.

’If I can just control this much power while maintaining consciousness, then I am sure I can get Regaleon and the others back.’ I thought.

"I can see that you also have strong magic powers like that b*astard." Tenasia said. "But I suggest you put your powers back in place. That is, if you do not want your precious ’husband’ to get more wounds than this."

Tenasia’s nails became loner and claw like. She had them at Regaleon’s throat. She was using Regaleon as a hostage against me.

"How dare you?!" I screamed with fury.

"I would not want to inflict more wounds in this man’s fine young body." Tenasia said mockingly and scratched Regaleon’s neck. "I still want to mate with this man and bear a fine daughter after, so I suggest you do not do anything foolish, or my hand might just slip."

Seeing Tenasia’s nails bore Regaleon more wounds made me burn with anger deep down. But seeing that my husband is in danger, I quickly extinguish my wind and fire magic. I cannot let her do more damage to Regaleon’s body.


 
"Hahahahaha..." Tenasia laughed crazily with her triumph. "Sisters, maker her feel pain. But do not kill her. I want her to suffer slowly."

With the siren queen’s words, the other sirens loomed around me. I clenched my fists hard feeling helpless with my situation. I braced myself for what was to come.

The sirens started their torment on me. Punches and scratches were made one after the other. My body fell to the ground with their beatings. I manage to take every single blow that they give to me while trying to block my face with my arms to shield my eyes.

"No, Alicia...!" I heard Snow yell.

I peeked a little at their location and they were also surrounded by other sirens. Snow was doing her best to defend Tricia that was behind her.

"Your majesty, please run away!" I hear Tricia yelled with her eyes were streaming with tears.

’I cannot do that.’ I thought to myself. ’I cannot leave all of you and Regaleon here in danger.’

After a few moments, the beating stopped. I can feel my body was bruised all over, I can feel the scratches from the sirens’ nails. I coughed off some blood right after the beating. Fortunately, I can still move because of my magic.

I trued to use my wind magic to make a thin protective layer all around my body. It served as a shock absorber from the hits and blows those sirens have done. It did not fully protect me from the beatings, but at least it softened their blows.


 
I heard footsteps coming near me. When I looked up, I saw Tenasia standing before me. She quickly grabbed my hair and pulled me up the ground.

"Ahh..." I grumbled with the pain while my hair was being pulled.

"Looking at your face, it is like a girl version of the b*stard." Tenasia said with a scoff. "It just wants me to make you suffer even more."

"What did the Almighty One ever do to you?" I asked. I was rather curious as to why she had such anger towards him. "It has been centuries ago, and he is already dead. Why do you still harbor such resentment?"

"You ask me why I loath the very memory of him?" Tenasia’s beautiful face distorted in anger. "After all that I did for him, after I gave my heart to him, it was not me that he chose to be his queen. That b*stard chose a human b*tch to stand by his side as queen to rule this continent and forsakes my kind and forced into hiding."

’So, the siren queen loved the Almighty One?’ I thought.

But looking at the siren queen’s rage, it looks like that love was not reciprocated. She said that she did things for him but did not get the love she had been given. So, what really did happen to them I wondered.

"So, the Almighty One did not return your feelings and now you are still resentful for it." I mocked her. "Isn’t that a little too harsh, just because your one sided love did not come to fruition."

*PACK*

Tensia slapped me hard on my cheek. I can feel the tingling pain lingering on my skin. I spit out the blood that was in my mouth, it tasted like iron.

"That son of a b*tch, he knew how I felt about him and used it into his advantage. I betrayed the other ancient creatures for him, and what did I get in return? I did get his love in return and he chose a human b*tch to love and be his queen. That b*tch, I should have torn her to pieces if he just did not get in the way. He should have killed me when he had the chance, but what he did was banish me and my kind. At least now I have a chance to exact vengeance on his descendant."


 
Hearing her story made me think what kind of man the Almighty One was. Hearing that the siren queen joined forces with him to help get rid of the ancient creatures that plagued this continent over a century ago, and for him to be on this kind relationship made me think he was playboy of some sort. But looking at Tensia, it looked like it was a delusional one sided love on her part. I would not want to go into conclusions just based on Tenasia’s remark.

"What do I have to do with your resentment with the Almighty One? I am just but one of his descendants." I tried to buy more time, as I can feel Tempest magic getting closer. "All of that happened centuries ago, what good does it make to get revenge on me?" I asked.

Well I do not really understand myself, but your scent..." Tenasia combed my hair with her fingers and sniffed it. "I can smell him in you. I also seen his descendants up close, but I have never had smelled this scent in them."

My eyes went wide with her words. I cannot comprehend what she said.

’Is it because I am the chosen one?’ I thought to myself. Like George had said, the chosen one might either be me or Regaleon.

"Well no matter, I will still feel satisfaction seeing you suffer even more." Tensia has a chilling smile on her face. "I have thought a better way for you to suffer. Do you want to know what else can I do with the men that have fallen into my spell?"

My heart pounded in fright knowing that Regaleon was still under the siren queen’s spell. I do not want any danger to befall my beloved husband.

"You, come here." Tenasia ordered and I saw Regaleon move with her commands. "Pick up that sword and kill your wife."

Seeing Regaleon move with Tenasia’s orders, my heart felt it was being squeezed tight. Just seeing my love pick up the sword lying on the ground and walking towards me made my whole body shiver. I can feel dread with every step he took.

"No, my love don’t do this." I said when he was just a few feet away from me. "Please wake up!" I shouted.

I know that Regaleon was being controlled by the siren queen. My mind knew but my heart hurts seeing that he was going to hurt me because of the siren queen’s command.

"That will not do... hahaha." Tenasia laughed coldly. "He is under my control and will never wake up again. Tell me, how does it feel when the man you love will be the one to kill you himself?"

I felt pain and loss deep inside of me. It would be better for the siren queen to kill me herself rather than Regaleon does. It was not only me that will be in so much pain, I am sure the Regaleon will be as well.

’I need to escape and buy some time until Tempest comes.’ I thought.

I used fire magic in my palms and held on to the wrist that Tenasia was holding my hair tightly. My palms started to blaze, and she let go of her grip on me. A black palm mark was left on her wrist from my attack. I tumbled down the ground but before I could escape, a kick flown my way and hit my stomach hard. I felt paralyzing pain on my stomach. I wrapped my arms around my stomach and coughed tremendously.

*COUGH COUGH*

"You b*tch!" Tenasia yelled in anger. "Kill her!" I heard her command.

I was crunched in pain on the ground when I felt someone loom on top of me. I saw Regaleon standing over me, holding the sword up high and ready to strike. My eyes went wide in shock.
