The second arc begins!

Chapter 6: Troubled Young Lady in the Forest

Narrator: The heroes head north in their journey to reach Zeth’s home.

*The heroes are walking through a deep forest*

Zeth: How long until we are out of this forest?

Kurt: Not that much longer.

Zeth: So what town will we be arriving at again?

Emily: Flagron Town.

Joe: I’ve never been there before so I’m looking forward to checking out some place new.

*As the heroes continue to walk in the deep forest, they hear crying and then they stop in their tracks*

Joe: Do you guys hear that?

Zeth: Yeah, let’s go check it out.

*The heroes head towards where they hear the crying from. The crying is coming from a young lady that is sitting against a tree. She has straight black hair and it goes down to her middle back, her iris color is red. She is wearing a red shirt and blue jeans but they are dirty. She is 5 feet, 10 inches tall*

Narrator: Sasha – Age 17.

*The heroes see and then approach her and she looks up with tears rolling down her eyes*

Zeth: Hey, are you alright?

Joe: What’s your name?

Sasha: My name is Sasha and I’m not alright. *sniff*

Emily: What’s wrong? Why are you out here by yourself?

Sasha: Just a few days ago, my adoptive parents and I got in a typical parent-child argument.

*Sasha has a flashback that shows her arguing with her adoptive parents inside their house. (Her step-dad has short brown hair as well as a bushy mustache. Her step-mom has upper back length brown hair. Both of them are wearing casual clothes and seem like they are in their late 30s)*

Sasha: But then everything went wrong. Suddenly for no reason, their anger turned to fear.

*Sasha’s parents have an extremely terrified look on their faces*

Sasha: They called me the devil’s spawn and told me to get out of the house and never come back. They said the Light Goddess would find me and execute me!

*More tears flow down Sasha’s face*

Sasha: I don’t think I have ever been so hurt!

Zeth: Sounds like cruddy parents to me.

*Zeth holds out his hand for her* Zeth: You should come with us.

Sasha: Do you really mean it?

Zeth: Yep, I’m not just gonna leave someone in need to suffer. Especially when you have no home to go back to.

Sasha: *sniff* Thank you, thank you!

*Sasha grabs onto Zeth’s hand to help her stand up. Sasha still holds onto Zeth’s hand and she looks at him in awe. After a few moments, she looks down at her arm*

Sasha: But umm one thing I want to mention is that my arms get this red aura.

*She holds out her other arm and both arms get a red aura*

Zeth: Don’t worry. That just means you have magic power.

*A purple aura forms around Zeth’s arms*

Zeth: See, I got a purple aura on my arms.

Sasha: Oh, okay. So then it’s completely normal.

Zeth: We are headed to my home city. We got a long way to go.

Kurt: Flagron Town is only a mile ahead. Let’s go.

*With Sasha in their group, the heroes continue moving on*

*Meanwhile, the silhouette of something sinister and creepy is watching them as they leave*

???: More humans are coming. Hehehe. Drought will be pleased.

Narrator: The heroes have found Sasha and are adding her to their group. But who or what is watching them from a distance?
