    Corey had had enough of people. Not because they were mean to him or got on his nerves but because it seemed like they were all now part of his new agenda. He had to become more popular to become stronger and cull those who were supposed to be 'plaguing' the world. It was nice to have friends but he had grown used to being alone, only looking out for himself. There were certainly no friends at the facility and no one seemed to notice him whilst he lived on the streets. Now, he had a home and people he talked to but the whole Celestial Guardian situation was an unwelcome addition.

    Wandering through the sentinel trees, Corey ventured further into the woods. It seemed like the perfect place to just get away from everyone and have some alone time. Avoiding low hanging branches, Corey suddenly got a feeling; a feeling that he dreaded. Whenever he got close to a person that was on the Celestial hit list, he got a sensation to alert him. He sighed deeply, annoyed that there seemed to be nowhere that he could escape. Corey was still yet to cull anyone and he knew that that meant he would soon be on the radar of other Guardians.

    Reluctantly and unenthusiastically, he began to transform into his Guardian form. Shards of blue-green crystals encircled him as a light of the same colour engulfed him. After one final burst, his form was completely different. As Zartax, he bore no resemblance to his usual form. It was as though he was a different person entirely, except on the inside, he was still Corey. It was easier to consider Zartax as a different person.

    Approaching the area where the feeling got stronger, Zartax stumbled upon a cave. Creepy, dark cave. This is definitely the place, he thought. He stopped before entering, reconsidering what he was about to do. His mind eventually made a decision: he valued his own life over the life of someone evil. He began his way inside the gloom.

    Vos

    Vos had lived as something of a hermit for sometime now, even as winter set in and the snow started to fall. The shadow demon had been considering heading into the city permanently, or at least semi long-term. He'd survived worse than this island's winter, but it was still unpleasant.

    He'd picked up Zartax's scent before he approached the cave, he had a custom it seemed. So far the people he'd met had proven pleasant, but he didn't want to take any chances. Stepping into a shadow created by his fire he'd vanish into it, he'd silently pop into a shadow outside of the cave.

    Completely invisible in the shadow he'd watch as his visitor entered the cave. He didn't have anything of particular value there, anything he wanted safe he kept on him. So he'd quietly watch, considering his options.

    Venturing inside, the darkness enveloped him. Zartax wished that he had a light source of some kind; he would be no use blind in a battle. He made a mental note to keep a torch on himself next time, in case a similar situation arose. However, there was a flickering light further in. Perhaps now was the chance to leave before it went too far. It always crossed his mind but knowing that would mean the chance of someone killing him would increase made him stay.

    Zartax emerged into the light of a fire dancing its brilliant reds and golds. Why would someone live in a cave? The thought that perhaps this person was some kind of outcast alone without a proper home made him uncertain but he had to convince himself otherwise. No. This thing is evil. Monsters live in caves.

    Looking around the place, he saw no sign of life. "I know you're in here," he yelled. "Come out where I can see you." He wasn't certain that the person was actually in the cave, the feeling wasn't specific that way but it was strongest in the area. His voice tried to sound strong, as usual, even if he was dreading it inside. Zartax had no idea who or what the person was or what they were capable of and that made him even more nervous.

    Vos had no idea who this person was but he had ideas about what he wanted. He'd acknowledged the poss that his home hell had put a bounty on his head, he'd thought it was unlikely yet here they were. This visitor didn't look or smell demonic but that didn't mean he was above taking jobs from demons.

    "Hunting for trouble are we?" he'd ask calmly, still out of site in the tree's shadow, "it's not wise to seek trouble where there usually wouldn't be any." He certainly didn't want any trouble, but he couldn't just ignore someone obviously hunting him.

    Focusing he'd instantly move into the shadow of the next tree, remaining invisible. "What do you want?" he had a good guess about what the stranger wanted but he was curious as to what they'd say.
