BV Island The Scorching Summit
Megumi shook her head. "Hunters are just one type. You'd be surprised how awful humans can be to each other when laws don't tie people down. Thankfully, most places aren't that brutal these days."

"Hm, then I suppose humans and monsters aren't that different in some aspects." Jack commented.

The group soon reached the end of the tunnel, which was sealed by an ancient door that Jack moved by tracing his finger along the ancient runes in a certain pattern. The runes glowed a bright blue before slowly rising to reveal the plains:

"This part of the summit is full of fire Deimos who don't take kindly to humans," Jack said to Megumi, who was busy fanning herself with her hand. "So please be careful. Once we follow the path up to the summit, it will become much cooler and we can find the Obsidian valley. But I think it will be harder for you to breathe since the air gets a little thin." 

"If they're anything like Asuza, then I don't think I should feel too worried..." Megumi joked, not looking forward to trekking further up.

"Is she a fire Deimos too? I thought humans weren't that keen on getting along with Deimos that much."

"Meh, depends on where you go I guess, but she's definitely got the aggression of a fire demon. She's a fire witch." Megumi replied.

"A witch.... a Paradican?" Jack asked.

"Yeah, but she never talks about it with me. I don't think she likes being from there."

"Paradican... so she's from Paradise... the land of magic?" She asked Megumi. She made sure to be weary when traveling through this part. Monsters were one thing, but Deimos is a bit a step above the average Monster in terms of strength and abilities. “Are you from Paradice as well, or Empire State, Megumi? You don’t seem to be a witch or a mage.” 

Lava Girl stared at her attire. “Though, it’s been a while since I see a mage around in this place.”

"Me? Er, I'm not from either of those places. I was born in the Desolate Lands. But my village was overrun with monsters and raiders, so I don't have a home to come back to there." Megumi tugged at her clothes out of slight embarrassment. "Paradicans dress kinda fancy, since they have all those casinos. But these are my work clothes. I'd have better ones if Asuza didn't spend my money buying so much frilly goth crap! I'm also too dumb to learn magic, so I've just adapted my own style of using my life energy."

"Desolate Lands... it sounds..." Jack trailed off.

"Totally lame! I mean, there's no laws, no government, monsters all over the place, and gross radiation stuff that probably makes you grow an extra head or something. And everyone's poor and grumpy and could kill ya for a biscuit." Megumi complained. "Well, I'm still poor, but at least nobody will steal my stuff while I'm asleep. I just have to worry about having a mean witch for a roommate."

“Desolate Lands… the lawless land…” Lava Girl shivered the thought that people can do whatever they want, whenever they want without any form of consequences. She felt sympathy that she was in the situation. “Well, hopefully we can find those minerals and give that to your friend! I am sure she is having a blast right about now. Who knows, she’d engage in a group herself!”
