The forest of Seraph was a dangerous place. This was an issue in many lands. Once you left the safety of the village the laws disappeared. In some cases you had to deal with highwayman attempting to rob those who they thought had money. If you did not have to fear a human than you had to fear the animals that were around. It was not unheard of to hear that a child or even an adult had been killed by an animal that they happened to stumble upon. However the life of people required that they observe this land and travel through it for a variety of reason. As the moon glowed overheard two victims of the darkness would be heard running in the forest. 

Hannah and Sarah had not meant to be out so long. They had sought out a friend Amelia who was sick at home. It was an attempt to cheer her up. They had not known how dark the day had gotten. How time slipped by before they knew it was Amelia's father coming in with a candle that let them know that time was short. They had set out for home but darkness had swept about them. Robbing them of the sight they had in the day and turning familiar items into monsters.  Sarah would be first to voice her displeasure. "I knew we should have stayed in town." 

Hannah turned as she observed her friend. She wanted to say something in her defense but what could she say? Sarah was right. If Hannah had not launched them into this mission they would be home already. They would likely already be in bed and ready to wake up tomorrow to go to school. Her eyes drifted down her feet as she spoke. "I am sorry Sarah. I just wanted Amelia to be happy. She has been sick so much I thought seeing us would cheer her up." Sarah had to relent, she knew that Hannah had wanted only the best for a friend. "I know let's just get home." 

In a moment the landscape had changed. The forest that was before them wiped away as if they had passed through a doorway they had not seen into a land they truly did not know. The sudden sight of stone path caused the two girls to look at each other. This was not the forest they know. Sarah gazed around before speaking to Hannah. "I don't know what's going on, let's go!" She moved reaching for her friend as she grabbed her sleeve running forward toward the area. As they went deeper and deeper the area grew slowly the outside faded away and red silk began to rise from the ground. As Sarah was the leader Hannah followed until they entered a courtyard. 

The courtyard was beautiful as flowers began to grow upwards reaching to the sky as the petals opened up. The single eye at the center looking at them as they moved about as if dancing Sarah was confused her face shined with the confusion of not knowing what was occurring. Hannah moved to grab her hand the young girl's eyes gazed at her friend as she spoke. "Don't give up we can get out of this. We just need to find the way out." 

The sudden sound of doors opening caused them to stop as the middle of the courtyard had opened at the ground The sudden sight of the dark figure growing upwards as it turned to face them. The face seemed to be female yet all they could focus on was the claws which shined like daggers in the light. The teeth were also not human but rather like a mouth full of knifes as it moved forward them. Hannah was quick to turn to run but keeping a hold of Sarah's hand as they attempted to run. Attempted to as they started to run the silk began to roll under them forcing them to run faster until the two girls fell forward hitting the ground as the carpet pulled them toward the creature. As the two girls looked up they could see the hideous mouth spread open much like a snake getting ready to consume the prey. Fixated upon the creature they were horrified. 

The sudden impact launched the creature back. The sound of thunder echoing  as the creature backed away from them. As they got up and more importantly off of the carpet they gazed at who saved them. It was another girl or so they thought about her height. The yellow cloak was the dominate feature they could see. Her hand held a simple crossbow but the moment she realized it from her grip it disappeared into dust but as she dropped her arms two more of the weapons appeared as she aimed it up at the creature launching the bolts as the two projectiles slammed as the sound of thunder echoed again the creature screamed in pain collapsing into the ground as it began toward the two other girls only to be meant with another slam to the head and at once the creature disappeared and the world it had created melted away leaving only the three girls. 

Hannah looked up as she observed everything. Sarah was the same way her eyes observing the girl who had saved her. "Thank you so much!" She stood up waving at the unknown hero. Hannah was quick to follow as they ran over toward the cloaked woman. As they got near her she took the cloak and bent the hood down revealing her blond hair and her light eyes as she offered a smile at them. "No problem I couldn't allow that witch to consume you! I had to do something!" She looked at both of them observing them as she spoke. "Oh you are not guardians are you? What are you doing in such a place if you aren't?" 

"Michelle!" The sound of her name caused all three of them to turn as they looked upon a white wolf with strange markings in the fur and purple eyes observing them. "You had to run off to fight the witch?" He eyes scanned as he observed the two other females as he kept speaking. "You did not even wait for me to tell you that it was fine. I would like a little warning before you go off." Hannah lifted her finger pointing toward the creature. "It can talk!" 

The wolf scoffed as he stood up on his legs. "It is rude to point!" He sat back down composing himself. "After all I am more than I wolf. I am the Negotiator. I am the being which allowed Michelle the power to save you. I allow wishes to come true for a service so I suppose I have one question now; would you like to make a deal?"

"A deal?" Hannah's voice trailed off as she observed the wolf. It was clear from the start that he was not normal. That he was something far from what they could understand. Those purple eyes causing her to feel like she was in a trance. "What would we have to pay?" Sarah's voice cut the silence as the wolf looked at her as he offered a smile.

"Nothing, but help me of course." He nodded his head slowly. "You see they are a bit of evil in this area. I have been sent to try and destroy it. You see what you saw back there was one of them. I shall call them a witch for you to understand. They plague people with bad thoughts and at times can force them to do bad actions. I merely find people who can battle them. I shall pay you actually."

"Pay us?" Sarah spoke confused at the thought. The wolf eyes look forward at her as the corners of his mouth pulled upwards. It was good to see that one of them was putting thought into it. "Yes you see, I shall make you stronger just like Michelle so you can help her battle these creatures. In exchange I shall grant you one wish. A single wish that you want to come true."

Earlier Sarah had stood at Edward's house observing him in bed. Edward had somehow caught a sickness. None in the town knew how to cure him. None knew if he would even survive the week. Sarah was more than just a friend of Edward's. She loved Edward and enjoyed hearing him practice music whenever she could sneak away. The very thought that perhaps she could protect him caused her to want this deal. She was all but decided when a sudden blast erupted.

A force that they did not understand occurred sending the negotiator away from them into a tree. The slam should have snapped his back and yet the wolf creature was able to stand up. The gold markings upon his fur started to glow as he turned to the way that the blast came from. A purple clothed girl stood before them. Her hand upon a round object as her eyes scanned over the two girls. "Did you make a deal?" Hannah shook her head. "Good I am not to late."

She moved forward as she threw the ball at the wolf. The explosion sending him back as he quickly got back to his feet. "I do not know what I did to you, but clearly your not happy." With that he took off his speed was impressive as he called out. "I shall be in contact." Instantly before the questions could be asked the purple girl chased after him quickly disappearing into the thick of the forest beyond what Sarah and Hannah could see.

Michelle looked at them as she moved her clothes changing to regular clothes though they were a bit more expensive than what they wore. "Don't worry he is tougher than he looks." She walked forward as she passed the girls. "Come I'll escort you back to the town. I don't see any need for you to stay here." Hannah nodded as she walked forward stopping as she spoke. "I Know you!"

Her blue eyes turned as she gazed at Hannah. "You know me?" She shook her head as if trying to convince herself that she was mistaken. "You can't..." Hannah stepped forward. "Your the Merchant's daughter, you live a few blocks away from me. My family knew yours." Her eyes watched her as allowed a smile to escape her lips. "I suppose that is what I get for staying around. You are right, may I ask that you both keep this a secret?" She watched observing the nod as she offered them a smile. "Thank you." With that Michelle walked them home for the night.

Sleep did not find Hannah easy. Where as Sarah knew what she wanted Hannah did not. What would she wish for? What was worth becoming a warrior for? She looked at the timber ceiling. She could wish for gold. Her parents would be happy to have the income but would that be worthy of a life filled to fight the darkness. They were not poor. Maybe she would wish for her crush to love her? However if she wished that would the love be real or would it be fake? Hannah did not know when she fell asleep but she woke up with the rays of the sun much to her sadness.

Hannah walked down stairs as she looked upon the table finding that her father had made her breakfast. Her mother stood there as she was wrapping the apron upon her. Her mother was the blacksmith of the town one of many. As she worked and provided with the skills she had it allowed her father to run the inn and needed him to do nothing more than cook. "Hannah your up, please eat?" nodding her head she sat down as her father went to deliver the food.

Hannah observed her mother before she asked. "May I ask you something?" She tilted her head as she saw her mother nod her head. "If you had one wish what would it be?" The mother turned observing her as she thought for a second before she spoke. "I would ask for the health of my family, I can survive the worse if I know we are going to be alright." Hannah nodded as she finished her food and stood as she went outside.

She was going to find Sarah and speak to her about it. The desire to know instead she was encountered by Sarah and Michelle as they walked toward her. Sarah was clearly excited as she ran forward to grab the hand of Hannah. "Come on Hannah; She said we could come!" Hannah seemed confused. "Come where?" Michelle looked at them both smiling before answering. "On my hunt of course!"
