The Hunt 4"Joshua do you have any information on this beastie?" Enigma asked finally breaking the tense silence.
"Well, for the past few years, local Indian villages have been attacked by strange creatures that move faster than the people can catch...and nothing they do can stop them." Joshua said.
"At first, I believed it was a yeti...but now I think differently." He stopped and looked back at the others.
"The people claim that they have heard screaming...human screaming...before the attacks took place. If that's true, then we're dealing with a wendigo."
"Sounds like this one'll be fun," Frankie muttered sarcastically.
"Wendigo's normally don't appear out here...you're more likely to find them in America or Canada...but it's not unheard of for them to pop up out here." Joshua explained. "The problem with a wendigo is that they used to be humans."
"So how does this shift occur?" Sarah asked now very interested.
"When a man wanders in the wilderness and
The Hunt 3"Who's Nicole?" Enigma asked, realising she probably should have been paying attention to both Kirai and Joshua.
Joshua let out a laugh. Kirai gave Joshua a grin and hugged his neck. "Nicole is an old friend of mine...who happens to be an arachne. Basically, she's a spider-taur. A young girl with the upper body of a human, but the lower body of a spider." Joshua fingered the dress that Kirai was wearing. "She's a seamstress, and she made most of Kirai's clothes, as well as a few of mine."
Enigma shuddered imperceptibly, "Sounds awesome!"
Joshua nodded. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a photograph. The photo showed a cave perched over the side of a mountain top.
"This is where she is right now...if we could teleport there, I'm sure she wouldn't mind meeting you."
"Danielle!" Enigma said holding up the picture.
She ported over and took the picture out of Enigma's hand.
"What part of the world is this?" Danielle asked.
"That would be India." Joshua sai
The Hunt 2"He's dead." Joshua muttered. "Well done...that's one down....but he was the easiest to deal with."
"Poor kid," Sarah said pulling her hands back as if the boy was acidic. "Joshua?"
"What's wrong?" Joshua asked curiously.
"Take me by the arms and take me away from this kid before I kill myself trying to fix him," she replied, tears streaking down her face.
Joshua moved forward and wrapped his arms around her as she breaks down.
"There's nothing you can do." Joshua whispered. "There is no cure for the werewolf curse. This was mercy for him. He needed to be put out of his misery."
Sarah tried to regain control of herself but her memories of Project Enigma kept her there.
"I've been told that too, yet here I am," Sarah hissed. She knew she'd regret it when she came back to herself but at the moment she didn't care.
"I'VE TRIED!" Joshua roared. "I've worked for years trying to find a cure...and there is no way to save him. There is nothing we can do for him. You're not like him...you're no
The Hunt"So Joshua when are we going to move out?" Danielle asked cleaning out her glock.
"I don't know," Joshua answered, "when is your team ready to move out?"
"Right now," she replied.
Joshua turned and grabbed his coat. Strapping his equipment to his side and then strapping a bow and quiver to his back, as well as a sword to his belt, he turned to the rest of the team. "Alright, I understand that one of you is a teleporter...think you can get us all there?"
"Provided you hold onto me and don't let go yes." Danielle moved to the center of the room and held out her hands. "Alright you guys know the drill."
Joshua grabbed hold of Danielle's shoulder and grabbed Kirai, placing her hand on Danielle's knee.
"Alright then...go for it. We don't have time to waste."
When Danielle was certain that her team had grabbed tight hold she ported to their destination.
They were now standing in the middle of a park, it was quiet grassy and surprisingly empty considering the warm breeze that wa
Loki and Katerina's excellent adventure chp 3"Where are we going?" Loki asked, tired of the uncomfortable silence.
"I already told you! We're going shopping!" Katerina replied, chuckling.
"Yes, but what market will we be 'shopping' at?" His emerald green eyes had a genuine curiosity in them.
"It's called 'Walmart'. Midguardians shop there a lot because they have just about anything and it's pretty cheap."
"I take it wealth is important here?" he asked, turning his head to look out the window again.
"Of course! Money means power, security and status!" she replied.
Loki's eyes lit up, "What kind of power?"
"Maybe this world isn't a punishment after all," he thought, grinning to himself.
"NO! That's what got you in trouble in the first place!" Katerina said, as if reprimanding a pup.
"I deserve a little more credit and respect than that!" he hissed.
"To be trusted one must first be shown to be trustworthy," she rebutted, gripping the wheel and clenching her teeth.
"So you can trust me to no
