Klay proceeded to go to sleep for the night his body still sore from all of the fights and things they had had to do, even after they had gone to Life he was still feeling completely beat up. However, unbeknownst to Klay a strange shadowy figure was looming over him.
Klay's eyes opened in one instant causing him to flip around and throw a kick at the figure, which proceeded to move back. "Ow." he heard Melanie groan as she saw her on the floor, blankets scattered around her. "I just wanted to bring you some blankets, sorry."
"Oh no, it's okay." Klay looked completely embarassed as he tried to help the girl up from the floor. "I'm sorry it was just a force of habit is all." he smiled. Melanie smirked though her arms suddenly stretching out and turning into long spiky claws that loomed from behind Klay. "What?" Klay jumped out of the way as he saw the claw thrust down on him.
Melanie's body had reshaped and refigured itself her hair turning long and dark, her legs grew longer as well as her arms and a long predatory smile appeared on her face as well as her teeth turning all into fangs and her eyes becoming beady. "What's going on?" Klay gritted his teeth.
"We are Mountain Sirens." Melanie hissed. "We call out to the travelers lost in the mountains and give them a roof and shelter, people will always become weaker if given charity after all, but when that happens we take our chance and kill them." she said before leaning back and jumping at Klay once more, who summoned his swords and was able to block the claw strike.
"Dang it." Klay frowned.
"Come out wherever you are Slayers!" he heard Melanie's mom's voice scream through the house.
Sakura's party was led to the kitchen of the restaurant, something that Aria and Kevin took in stride as they immediately waltzed in. "This is amazing." Kevin said while marbling at the cooking utensils and the room itself.
"Thanks but it's nothing special." Sakura raised an eyebrow, not even feeling the presence that had appeared behind her. She turned around and saw a short old lady standing int he center of the group her face full of wrinkles and her grey colored hair tied to a knot; she was giving them a gentle smile though. "I'm so glad you could come see me after getting my request." she stated happily.
"It's Setsu, one of the best cooks in the world." Aria stated, her tone becoming shaky.
