    Admist the sounds of crumbling rock, Aislinn and Botanicus darted in and out of the tree's roots. When atlast they came to a spot of dazzling brightness well within the tree, the pair stopped and Botanicus transformed back into his normal dryad form. "Is there anything your power can do to save the tree and us. I don't think this island can last from Zaad's force much longer"

    Botanicus nods "There is something...but this body," He motions downwards "Will probably not survive the metamorphosis...all will die, unless the island itself does something. Yggdrasil has no hope- it is a shame he died so young..." His features harden "But there is always a hope...and," He points to the withered branches, where a single pink blossom is slowly forming "The seed"

    Botanicus steps towards the blossom, rising upwards on the air, and cupping it in his hand. Putting the last few ounces of his strength into it, it swells, growing into an apple. He plucks it from its stalk, and places it in his mouth. He drops to the floor, and takes Aislinns hand. They both rise, passing through earth and roots as if they were air, all the while, something is happening to Botanicus...

    Zept nodded and started to follow Airelot, as did Aenarion.

    Botanicus sets Aislinn on the ground, and touches her cheek "Goodbye...you were a good mistress for the brief time we were together," She feels the dryads essence leave her, slightly. It's still there, but much weaker now. Botanicus rises, his roots lengthening and thickening. He slowly rotates, as the clouds part, and a sunbeam casts itself down onto his head. All the humanity he posesses seems to leave him, although his body is still clearly humanoid. He turns to face Aislinn, in his now glowing eyes seem to be the watchful glance of every creature that ever stood on the island, or would ever stand. He sighs "Let us do what has to be done..."

    Unshed tears blurring her vision, Aislinn says goodbye to the dryad. He has been a good friend and fellow warrior on the island, she wished he could have stayed around longer. But this seemed to be his fate. And not one that a dryad would mind. "Farewell, Botanicus. May this tree stand forever." the elf said as she walked into the dense forest.

    Looking around, Aislinn realized she was completely unfamiliar with the area. It seemed to her to be uninhabited. A good place for the tree, but not for an elf alone.

    Aegis struggled back to his feet, leaning heavily on his new found staff. A thrill went through him at holding it once more. The staff of Eieshar, one of the most powerful magical artifacts ever created, and now it's power was unlocked.

    Felling the rumblings of the island growing more and more erratic, Aegis turned to Airelot, who was returning to him from the battle field. "We must flee this place, and soon." The mage glanced back out to the battlefield where Zept ran back and forth slaying creatures as he went. Aegis' hounds as well as Aenarion were in the mix as well. "I'm content to leave Zept behind if he feels the need to ignore your warnings, but I need you to find Aislinn and bring her here. I will prepare a way for us to depart while you search for her." Aegis motioned to the teleporting rod strapped on the young elf's belt as he said the last. "Make haste, our time here is growing short."

    Airelot bowed to his commander as he activated his device. He used it to return to the tunnel from wence they had reached the island. Deep within the alien seeming underground he searched. Until finally he came to a clearing. It seemed familiar, like the old tree's chamber, but greyer, and another tree rose from the ground. He walked over to the only thing fully alive in the chamber and came to a strange realisation, it was the dryad. He stepped away from the dryad in awe then realised Ailsinn must be near, he had to find her quickly.

    Aenarion continued to slaughter the demons, like a berserker. It had been so long since the adrenaline of facing demons had taken him. Looking over to Zept, he saw the man, or was it man flicker between Angel and Demon. Realisation dawned upon him that the island was sinking, when Aierlot alerted him.

    Making his way over to Zept, he called out to the warrior as he fought, "We must go now.....we will not last longer.....we still have yet to slay Eishar.....come battle brother......there will be more to fight soon" and with that waited for Zept's reaction as he continued to slay the demons.

    Zept nodded and went with Aenarion, he was starting to like the Elf very much, he felt like Aenarion in some way understood him and accepted him. Zept ran with Aenarion over to Aegis, Zept then looked around, "Where are Lorek and Lurion" Aenarion just shrugged his shoulders, Zept didn't much care for the two but any and all allies would be excepted in the coming battle.

    As Aislinn walks out the bark of the great tree cracks open, and a queer moan comes out. From it, rolls the dryad- looking as normal, save for a glowing crown that hovers a few centimetres above his head. He looks around "Such power..." He motions downwards, and the islands rumblings cease somewhat. He turns to the exit, and follows the elves- although he doubts the island can survive losing its lifeforce a second time, he does not care. He had something that the last Yggdrasil did not- love for others. He toys with a ball of white energy, looking thoughtful- perhaps now he could show that spirit the true fury of nature.

    Airelot paused in his search for Ailsinn for a moment. Something changed, a new energy filled the air. He shrugged, he didn't have time to wory about an aura that didn't seem hostile he thought as he continued his search.

    Botanicus staggers towards the doorway Aislinn headed through. Or was it a doorway? When he concentrated it seemed he could see through the mounds of earth indefinitely. He could even heart the heartbeats of each creature in here- and one of them was distinctly his friend. He passes through the cavern walls, making his way towards the elf, whilst trying to use his new found powers to sense the others presence.

    Walking around in the forest, Aislinn thought it seemed somewhat familiar. But she couldn't place herself at any landmark. She began wandering around aimlessly, looking for a pathway that would take her out of the woods. During her wandering, she thought she felt an elven presence a few times, but when she turned around saw no one else. She had been hoping the other elves were near.

    After a couple of hours of walking, Aislinn came to a lovely waterfall. Taking a drink, she thought it would be a good place to rest for an hour or two. Settling herself down on a rock, she watched the picturesque waterfall.

    Botanicus stretches his arms- and notices that they seem to extend far further than he had realised. He jumps slightly, as he realises how maleable his body had become when he so willed it to be. Concentrating for a second, he becomes a form he never knew he had- that of a war eagle. Passing through the earth above him, he searches for the others- seeing a familiar elf sat by a waterfall he circles in.

    Airelot stopped for a moment, that new tranquil presance was moving fast, and it's aura was different now. The young elf followed it, somehow certain it would lead him to Ailsinn and allow himself and the others to get off the sinking isle. He headed in it's direction for awhile then realised it was faster than he was flat footed, thus he readied his device and began to jump in it's direction.

    Botanicus spirals downwards, landing lightly on the floor "Aislinn...we must go..." he says awkwardly, through a beak, before realising she may have no idea who he is, and reassuming dryad form. "The others draw nearer, and we must leave the island,"

    Airelot came to the clearing and stopped abruptly surprised at the sight of Botannicus, dryads are much more complex then I can understand I guess he thought before speaking, "Ailsinn, Botannicus, we must go, Aegis and th others await us upon the surface.

    Zept was getting impatient, they were running out of time, some parts of the island had already sunk. Zept and Aenarion were killing and Demons who were still alive around them, but that wasn't much at all. Zept streched his wings and let out a battle cry as he cut down another Demon, "Damnit, they'd better hurry" he said with a grim look upon his face.

    Aenarion looked to Zept as he told them they must leave. Nodding to Zept he jumped, avoiding a creatures low sweep,a nd took its head off in a clean blow. He was getting tired now, and the island was sinking, he had no idea where Eishar was, and he could collapse very soon. Turning back he ran, ran to where he thought he could see the Drya'ds from through eyes of magic. Ran to the green glow; odd that it was green now. But no matter he needed to get off the island. Eishar still had to be dealt with.

    Airelot and the others reappeared near the main group as a tremor shook the ground. The young elf looked at Aegis as the mage continued his preparations, they were almost ready.
