Thowra snarled as he saw the other hellion. "get out of my home, Corus!" He reared teeth bared and flames hot on his neck. The other horse snorted and turned and left, clearly remembering Thowra's anger at him. "Good boy, Thowra," Erosaf muttered, smiling at the stallion she had created.
"Yay!" Phantom said as Corus turned to leave. There would be no problem from him today. "I wonder if the others are here," she mused aloud, pacing from a large oak tree to a smaller dogwood. Finally, she plopped herself down in the shade and looked up at Thowra and Simplicity, who were still there for some reason. She sighed, getting a little bored. It was great to see Thowra though. Maybe they should go look for the others. Maybe some of the others were trapped in Freedom's Palace.
The girl jumped onto a low tree branch and climbed to the top of the largest oak she had seen in her life. From the top she spotted someone else, probably someone that got sucked inside their computer. "Erosaf, there's someone over there! I don't know who it is though," she said, looking at them.
The girl looked around herself, surprised. Had she just been?... Nah, that's impossible. She thought, then looked around again. She was in a forest, with no one else in sight. What the...
The girl looked down at herself, shocked to see that she was slightly shorter than what she was supposed to be. Other than that, she looked fairly normal. A bit on the squished side though.
A horse stood, watching her, and the girl turned, looking back at him. He was old, grey, with stormy eyes. His mane was purest, snowy white, and his tail was so black it looked blue.
"Greetings, Otho. Do you know where you are?" he asked her, moving forward.
"Uh..." she stared at him in utter shock. A talking horse. The girl felt as if she had just stepped into Narnia. Beside him was a little wolf, with pure white fur.
"Hi there, Otho!" said Jalie, wagging her tail at the blond-haired girl.
"Hi..." she said, not sure what to make of it. "No, I have no idea where I am. Tell me, please!"
"You, Otho, are in Freedom's Palace." Jegathema said, bowing to her. "I am Jegathema, and this young one here is Jalie the wolf pup."
Otho blinked, then opened her mouth in a small 'O'. "I'm guessing I actually have gone insane..." she said finally, then laughed a bit.
"No, you haven't. Come, get on me, and grab Jalie. She has trouble keeping up. We'll take you to your friends." responded the grey stag.
Nodding, Otho picked up the fluffy white puppy, then mounted her character as he knelt down so she could get on.
The three flew through the woods, till Jegathema stopped, where Erosaf and Thowra, as well as Simplicity and, up in an oak tree, Phantom were.
"Hi guys. Since I may be insane, care to explain what's going on here?" the blue-green eyed girl asked, dismounting easily, still holding the puppy named Jalie, petting the wolf's soft white fur automatically.

Phantom looked around, her brown eyes scanning the place as she saw Jegathema with the person next to him. Otho? she thought as she jumped down. Surely it was! The girl, still in her pajamas, ran over to the other. "Hi...Otho?" she questioned, wondering if it was her or someone else. "Well, we don't really know. We got sucked into our computers. Oh yeah, you might want to go to Avatar Maintenance," she said, looking at the squished Otho. It happened to them all. They looked so odd at first when they first came here.
Jaile's brother, Curcio came up to her, pouncing at her. "Hi, Jaile!" he said playfully. Julianna came playfully bouncing in after the dawn colored wolf. "Oh, this is Julianna, the new girl," Phantom said, petting her newly made character. "She'll get some spotlight soon," she added with a smile. Her mind wasn't on the fact that they were stuck in the computer at all now. Eventually, all the people of Freedom's Palace would be there.
Phantom saw that she had a hair band around her wrist from yesterday...and that her contacts were still in. The girl tied her long hair back; they would probably have to do some running at some point. She sighed. So many things to do. What would her dog do without her...or her horses? Phantom was sure her parents would take care of them for her. Hopefully, they wouldn't be too mad at her for leaving. It wasn't really up to her.
Otho laughed, then set the yipping Jalie down to play with her brother. Then she looked back at Phantom and sighed. "So, we have no idea what exactly is going on, and it appears that we're stuck inside good ol' Freedom's Palace? Huh... Well, I wonder what would happen if..." she began digging around in her hand-me-down jeans' over-sized pockets, biting her lip a bit. "Sorry, these used to be my brother's and he left a lot of junk in them... Plus I added some." she started laying things out. Marbles, a few ball bearing, a fishing hook "Oh, so that's what kept poking me! Duh," she said, grinning. Next was a small spool of copper wire, a notepad and a pen, a piece of chalk with bite marks in it, a ribbon from the Dixon County Fair, an MP3Player without its earbuds... "Darn it, must've left those in the computer at home..." and... Last to come out of her pocket was a small business radio.
"And ta-da! Should be able to..." Otho flipped it over and glared. "Find some stinkin' batteries..." the blond-haired girl said, holding it up to reveal that the batteries were missing. "Thank my younger brother for that one... He's got them in his remote controller no doubt. Steals them all the time." muttering to herself she shoved everything back into her pocket, then stood up, though it didn't make much difference. She was squashed either way.
"avatar maintenance you say?" she grinned maniacally. "should be fun... Can you change hair colors there?"
Jegathema snorted a bit, knowing what the blue-eyes girl was thinking. Just then he looked up though, to the east, the place of a rising sun.
There stood a stag of purest white, handsome, strong and tall. One of the tallest horses in all the lands. His eyes were deepest blue, without pupils. Flames shone from him, covering his body from head to ivory tail.
"Greetings, humans," he said, bowing to them mockingly. "How do you like blood, dripping down your body... From your neck?" Exile asked, smiling cruelly.
Otho looked at him and laughed, her blue-green eyes locking on his orbs of sea's fearsome color. "Oh please, Exile, you kill me and you go POOF. Kill Phantom, and lovely Candra, as well as your queen, Temia will just BANG! And they're gone! It'd be a better idea by far to go and attack Therthis' herd. So run along now." she said, flicking back her hair, looking up at him. She might have seemed slightly comical, a squished up, blond-haired human girl telling off a hellion stag, but for the fact that she was backed up by Jegathema, the aging king. For some reason, he didn't look as old as he did just a few seconds before. His harks were laid back, his teeth bared, and suddenly, the warm, wise, loving light was gone from the grey eyes, replaced with a roiling, boiling storm of anger.
Exile smiled, then nodded a bit. "Well played. But perhaps, when I've spoken with others, you'll find that the taste of blood is what you'll remember most as you die..." he left, his white head up, going off towards Inferno Plains again.
"Now then. Jegathema, why don't you go back to the Gemdas. I'm sure that Sky Fire will allow me to ride her around." she said, smiling a bit as the afore mentioned white mare walked out form the trees, her white body shining against the green of the forest.
"Yes Jegathema, you should spend more time with your herd! For goodness' sake, you're able enough to carry her, yet not enough to help ease the burdens you've placed upon Heart of Gold? Go on now, go." she said, smiling a bit at the elderly king.
He sighed, then laughed. "You are determined to not let me have any good adventures nowadays, aren't you?"the grey asked the girl, smiling. "Well, I'll leave it to Phantom and Erosaf to decide then. Should I go, and help Gold with the tasks he will have to deal with when he is king, or can I stay and keep you lot company?"
Phantom sighed, looking down. "Yeah, we're stuck, with no way out. The only thing I have is this and this," she said, taking her iPhone out of her pocket. "No service," she said, shaking her head. After taking out the phone, she pulled out her contacts' case and small bottle of saline solution. There was just enough to maintain her sense of vision. What about food? " What do we eat in Freedom's Palace?" she asked, knowing she wouldn't eat meat or eat grass. There had to be other things. Phantom didn't know anything about changing your hair color, but it could be fun.
The girl looked over the hill, her eyes lighting up with fright. Her Alicorn swooped down to stand in front of her as she saw him. Exile. Fantasma pinned his harks to him, glaring, wanting to rip him to shreds. "You'd best leave Exile. Even if you annoy me, they can be killed," she murmured before he left.
Phantom chuckled to Jegathema. "Of course you should go back. Someone's had her foal and is on her way home," she said with a small smile. Jegathema would want to see the young filly that looked so much like him already.
Otho grinned at Jegathema, then nodded. "see, told you you should go home!"
The grey stag laughed a bit as well, and then with a nod started off for the mountains. "Right you are, right indeed!"
The girl grinned then began picking things out of all her pockets, eventually assembling everything within. The blue-eyed girl picked up her notepad and pen and began making a list of the things they had. Finally, she looked up at Phantom and Erosaf and began listing things off.
"So, we've got... An Iphone, which doesn't get any service. An MP3Player with no earbuds. Marbles and ball bearings. A fish hook. Copper wire. Chalk. A ribbon from the Fair. My rubber bands. Some lint. Ponytail holders. Glue. A vast amount of kite string. My flashlight. A Wall-E sticker. Oh! So that's where my stapler went... Last week's homework assignment. My cruddy pocket knife. My brother's not-so-cruddy sheath knife... Flint. And... A set of arrowheads from archery practice a few moths ago when I accidentally Robin Hooded a few of my arrows..."
She motioned to everything on the ground before her, then grinned. "Food, you ask? That's easy! Remember, in Wajida Glade there are the sweetest apples ever! And in the desert are cacti, which aren't too bad. Plus, there're pears in Ciera, and there should be some cattails around water. Not the best pickings for horses maybe, but if you dig up the roots, boil 'em, and then mash it up, you've got a mix equal to the most wonderful batch of mashed 'taters." the squished Otho said, in her element. "Another good thing, for me at least, is rabbit. And maybe some deer... I should ask one of the wolves about that later though..." she shrugged, then held up the flint, her pathetic pocket knife, and... of all things... Lint.
"Meet our friends. This is Pocket knife, flint, and lint. Oh, and the homework assignment too... Handed in a copy of it already. Together, they make FIRE!" she said, then laughed. "No, really, they do. Flint and steel, and then use the lint and paper for tinder. Easy as pie."
I looked at Dragon Wing and slowly wrapped them in a cloth a had and smiled "that will do for now " i said walking over so i could jump on to his back. i got up and looked around "we must see were the other person is i heard them a little bit before hand" we rode out and went out a door and it lead to a land "is any one here Dragon Wing" he nodded and trotted towards were he smelt the others. i stopped him when i saw that there was more then i thought i had heard "hello" i said and jumped off Dragon Wing and stood by his head with me hand on his neck. i looked at what they had on the ground " i have my back pack it was on when i got here" i said taking it off and holding it up "and theres more in here then what i have in it a lot of the time" i said walking over and then went thought it till i found the food bags i have in it "well you have more food now " i said and smiled partly and started going thought it and started giggling when i pulled at a green book with black lines on it. i put it back in my bag and then pulled out to other books "we can use this for the fire as well" i said and picked up the bag of food and put it all back in my bag yes there was heaps more in it but a few things i would keep to my self "also my bag is water proof " i said which meant i could keep this dry when it rained.
"And yet there is also the forest where we can find shelter and food as, as well as the Valley. I have many places I can get to... however I just need to head back to where I got pulled into here... I have something that can track Corus and Exile and anyone else who mistrusts humans."
"Otho, you come with me, so you can get to Avatar Maiteneance... and yes, you can change hair colour and things. Goodness me, I'm usually honey blonde but right now I'm sand blond." I laughed then hurried off... hoping that she would follow as I found the way back to the buildings where we were all pulled in via.
"Somehow I ended up in a room opposite Kanchana..."
Otho grinned and followed Erosaf, picking up her things and shoving them back into her pockets. "See you two later," she called back to Phantom and Alamandy, then she got onto Nightshade, wrapping her hands around a lock of the black horse's mane and galloping off.
"Weird," the girl said, speaking to Erosaf. "I was looking through the lands when I got sucked in. I'd just clicked on Snowy River Forest and BAM! I was here. And squished." the blue-eyed girl said, laughing a bit. "Usually I'm about five five, not three two."
"I'll come too!" said Phantom, not wanting to get left behind. Who knew what would come along while they weren't there? The girl definitely did not want to be food for a hungry mountain lion or be a treat for a hellion. She whistled for Fantasma and hopped on him, as he flew up. They could fly faster than all the others, but they stayed at a slow pace, soaring low next to Nightshade and Otho. The stallion nodded to the mare that would have his foal soon - or that already had.
Fantasma couldn't wait to see the colt. Perhaps he would get a visit from the fae in a couple of months, once they were settled down.
I laughed. "My land sucked you in? I was viewing my Character Tracker, tryng to figure out who would die in the big battle against Corus when I got sucked into my computer... Ended up in a room opposite Kanchana!"
The girl shrugged a bit, looking pensive. "Apparently. Makes me wonder though, how to get to all the other lands. I mean, it's not the same as just posting a new thread in a different land, 'cause we're actually here. Darn it! I wish I could remember how exactly I described the land... I know that the desert lands are the ones farthest east, and the mountains are in the northern-most ares, but I can't remember where the valleys are..."
She sighed, fiddling with Nightshade's mane a bit, braiding a bit and unbraiding it quickly, her fingers moving automatically.
"'Course, we could just go to the character trackers and begin there. We might be able to get in touch with everyone from them, but I'm not sure... Guess I should check that out after Avatar Maintenance..."
