"First good sign I've seen in awhile," Kyriek remarked
Xavier nodded his head in approval as the two Venge members continued walking through the forest. I just hope we don't run into anymore of those Divine user guys, Xavier thought. Although the sky was clear again, and the forest was alive with vitality, Xavier's eyes stayed keen on his surroundings. Every noise and movement made him tense up a little, seeing as his adrenaline had yet to die down from the battle with the Diviner. Suddenly, Xavier’s thoughts were interrupted by the sound of radiant-like ringing in the air. There was an enchanted item somewhere within the vicinity, and Xavier hoped it was the tablet they were looking for. Kyriek, noticing the sound as well, perked his head to the left trying to get a clear focus on the direction of the sound.
“It sounds like it’s a little to the north of us.” Kyriek stated. “I can’t pinpoint it exactly, but I’m puzzled by the fact that I can’t feel any Divine power from it even though it’s supposed to let us use Water divinity to breathe underwater.” Kyriek turned his head left to right, surveying his surroundings. “I don’t feel any other presence so let’s hope it’s unguarded.”
“I hope so, too.” Xavier agreed, crossing his arms across his chest. “I don’t know about you, but I’m still recovering from that stupid Divine user that attacked us earlier.” Scratching his head, Xavier looked toward the north before turning his eyes back on Kyriek. “Make sure you keep your eyes peeled. I know you haven’t recovered either from you rib injury, so we both are sitting ducks if we get ambushed again.”
“I know.” Kyriek responded. “I’ll be feeling out for any Divinity in the area. You keep your eyes on lookout for whatevas emitting that radiance. I have a good feeling it’s what we are looking for.”
Nodding his approval, Xavier takes the lead out front with Kyriek following close behind. As both members continued walking toward the north, the radiant sound started to grow louder and louder till the pitch almost hurt Xavier, and Kyriek’s ears. Both members winced a little bit as they continued walking towards the north. A few paces in front, Xavier noticed a yellow glow in the bushes that seemed to pulse with the high pitched sounds of the radiant noise. Looking back at Kyriek, Xavier points toward the glow, and Kyriek gives back quick nod of acknowledgement, letting him know to continue cautiously.
Cautiously moving forward, Xavier approaches the bushes covering the pulsing yellow glow, and takes in a deep breath of air. Neither Venge member knew if this was the item they sought out, or if this was a calculated trap. Was it relic that could be useful? Is it protected? So many questions enveloped Xavier’s mind, and for a moment he was hesitant to even move any further. Here goes nothing. Xavier thought nervously. Reaching forward slowly and cautiously, Xavier opens the bushes covering the radiant object….
