Salem's horns told him to move. The young ram felt the dust climbing his shoulders. The dessert sand was hot and the air was stale. Salem's eyes couldn't even open. Everything hurt so much. This was, an especially new feeling for the young stag. Usually nothing made him tired. Nothing. Maybe it was the heat. Salem curled his fingers around the base of his horn. He could feel the carved indentations, ancient tails circled around the length of each spindle. The male absently traced the lines with his finger. He closed his eyes. Thinking. But much more, he was listening. The voices in his head . They told him to get up now. Or he'd be late. where are we going? Salem didn't want to move. But he did. His muscles ached. He felt like he landed on nothing but jagged rocks.. Frankly, Salem felt like someone had hit him with a giant rock. The ram kicked at his hooves. Stand. And he stood. The ground spun every direction... And so did the sky. Such a pretty clay blue. It reminded him of the rivers and streams that lead to the port of the City. Why did his head hurt so much? Something- Salem held at his head, he wished Hephaestus was here to make him something sweet to drink. Something warm and smooth. Why was his head ringing like fire from the sky...? Salem's eyes were barely open. Slowly, he could see more and more. The light was unyielding, and the barren dessert faced every direction. The young ram has never been in such a place before. Let alone seen so much sand... The coarse desert sand swept at his legs, Salem lost his balance, and fell to his knees.

Pain.... That is all the young Frenchman could feel on his lower back. His wounds pulsed with pain. But all that was going through poor, hurt Oses' brain was one thing. Is Valcon alright? I need to go check on him! He would wipe the sand from his face as he laid on the ground. The floor it felt some how warm. Very warm. The ground at the circus had always felt cold and sometimes wet. What was underneath him was warm and soft. Almost as if it was a bed. He just wanted to lay their for a few more moments, but he could not. There was something wrong and he must get up. He must find out where he is. The young man stood up from the sand. He brushed the sand off his turtle neck sweater and sleek black pants. Looking at his surroundings to be very different. "Par les dieux! Where are we? Is this the desert? I am so confused, how did we get here?" Questions flooded his mind and escaped his lips. He was not only afraid for his own well being but for the man who was not with him at this moment. All that had stood with him was this Minotaur and his beautiful mermaid companion. "Ocarina, Salem? Are you all right?" He turns to Ocarina and offers his hand. "This plays must be drying out your scales. This definitely is not good for you." As he brought her to her feet he looked around. "We need to escape this heat and fast. It seems we do not have much of the day left." Oses looks to the sky and closes his eyes. "Oh mon amour. Qu'allons-nous faire?"

For a moment in time, ocarina felt the full moon of her loneliness surround her every nerve. Swaying in the deep ocean, she couldn't bare to open her eyes if not to take away this fleeting, immeasurable instant. What bombarded her mind was the giant in the shadows, roaring as he took his last breath but certainly not his final task. Upon crashing to the cold earth, something pulsated, something burned, and ate away at its skin as if time had sped up and decay set in. After that, a million silver drops of prismatic light shot out of his chasm and ran in all directions. The rest escaped her memory but now she hovered in a cold abyss without any recollection of time. Seconds? Hours? Days? Ocarina caught glints of her own world, like reflections in a smashed mirror. And as quickly as these feelings danced her around, they tore away from her. Heat. The air shimmers like the space above a heated griddle. She finally took it upon herself to open her eyes, and stare at amazement at the sand that glint like millions tiny diamonds. It was soft and hard at the same time, as she tested her limbs by cupping handful of and letting it seep between her fingers. Her balance was hard enough, but now she had to walk on this unsteady terrain? Today wasn't her day.. "Ocarina, Salem? Are you all right?" The soft voice of cheese and wine centred her grip on reality, as she lifted her arm to signal some form of activity. Salem? Was he with her? Was he alright? Ocarina flipped onto her back and stared at clouded sky. Turning her head to match the gaze of her companions, she quickly sat up with a million questions but knowing neither would be answered. "This place must be drying out your scales. This definitely is not good for you." Oses was right; every breath she took felt as if it ate away the moisture from her lungs. Her skin, even worse. "I should be fine for a few hours but I can't stay in this environment forever." She gripped the boys hand and tugs herself to the sole of her foreign feet. She hobbled over to her minotaur companion, and rested her palm on his shoulder. (Wether to keep balance to to reassure him, that's unclear haha) "What was the last thing you remember? Both of you."

She was very pretty. Very pretty. No. Beautiful. And she was touching the young Centaur's shoulder. His horns translated the motion for him. Concern. Ocarina was concerned, Said the wisdom.WhisperWhisper. Salem could barely hear himself through the beating of his heart. This... Whirlpool under his skin was deafening. Whis per... W his per... W h isp er... What was she saying? Salem's eyes were watching Ocarina's lips slowly create a harmony with her words. She must be saying something... important. But Salem's horns kept interrupting. They wouldn't let him listen. WhisperWhisper Whisper...whisper..whisper.. Salem's large black eyes blinked. His mind turned into a Hazy fog. "Ocarina, Salem? Are you all right?" Oses was apparently here too~ Salem's tongue couldn't help but want to apologize. Confess. He couldn't remember if he had apologized yet or not. His horns certainly weren't going to appologize to Valcon. But Oses... Oses~ He remembered it - Something- He was remembering something- -
Valcon- “Staring at it long enough won’t make her appear you know...She’s running a little late, but I figured I should enlighten you on a rule..." "No touching." The Clown man had posed a threatening smile. And Salem touched anyway. The stag caused spider cracks which made the tank shatter. The tent went from dry to wet. Then Oses was hurt. And Ocarina grew legs... And Ocarina was with him... And- Then- In the sky- Hephaestus sent something... through the clouds... Bright pink and blue streaks hurled to the earth. Then.. Then ... .
"This place must be drying out your scales. This definitely is not good for you." And that knocked his voices loose once more- Carry her. The Minotaur instantly found his footing. His back legs stood steady as an Oak. He was glad. Especially because Oses was watching... "A- h-.." Salem stammered. His horns repeated their command. Demand. To Carry. "Let me Carry you." Salem took Ocarina by the arm- ** Salem wasn't very gentle. In fact- he was not gentle. At all. The Minotaur had ripped the girl from the ground and slung her onto his back. Absolutely savage. But Salem hadn't noticed. He was glad to be able to help in some form. And it felt familiar... That's right- like how they chased after the star.~ "Ja- I don't remember anything..." The male said, answering Ocarina. Then he nudged the girl up onto his waist more.

"What was the last thing you remember? Both of you." The frenchman could not find the correct words or memories at the moment. But he had to remember. What did happen? He thought to himself. Then it came to him. All in a sudden flash. "I remeber a girl who looked like Elise, then I see Valcon. He was carrying me. And than I saw a beast tearing up my families life. What they worked hard for. What made them, them. Now we are here, and everything and everyone that I hold dear is...... gone." He had to shake this feeling of pain and agony. He needed to get his mind off of all this mess. They needed a way out and he had to be a good leader for now. The boy clears his throught and lets salem speak. He turns to the Minotaur and see how rough he is with such a delicate creature. Just throwing her around like some toy. He understood he was trying to help. But he mustn't be so rough. It pain Oses to see him flinging thing around with out a care. "Allez! Please Salem, you must be more carful with her. She is not some ragdoll you can toss around." He turns to Ocarina. "Are you alright? He didn't hurt you right?" Oses lets out a sigh. "I understand you do not know any better, but you must try. You have to be more gentle with such delicate things, such as Ocarina. Shes a pearl and should be cared for as if she could shatter like glass. You can not toss a lovely dove as if it was a ball. You must be very carful." The frenchman talked with such passion in his voice. He hoped the ram could see how serious such a matter was.
