They crawled out, one by one, and they all gathered round the charred remains of...Jaques.
They later buried him in a hole near the shelter and they created a gravestone saying, 'R.I.P Jaques, the leader of Vetini Vati.' They then went back to the den, which was barely unscathed, and got a good night's rest. It was 11:30pm.
~-~
Naomi woke up at 6:30am. A feeling was urging her to go back to sleep and get a couple of extra hour's rest but the quiet whispering of voices led her away from that feeling. She pressed her ear against the door and it seemed as if the bandits were having a quick meeting. She quickly but quietly got dressed and went outside the back of the den. She then ran all the way to her old hut and wrote a quick, scribbled note. It read: "Naomi is not living in these premises anymore. Go west, then north-west and then south to find her."
She then was out of breath and walked back to the den. She then pressed her ear against the door leading to the main room and listened. Naglad seemed to be speaking at that moment.
"...and that is who will be elected. Everyone agree on that?" They all agreed and Naomi could hear Lucy's soft voice amongst them.
Deciding to catch them off-guard, Naomi walked into the room that was filled with bandits. Lucy stood out with her clothes among them. "Good morning, Naomi," she greeted her happily. "How do you feel today?"
"Fine," Naomi answered. "Why were you all in here?"
"We were just discussing a thing, thatís all," Naglad replied.
"Stuff like what?" Naomi asked, tilting an eyebrow.
"Stuff like who should be elected leader of our gang," one of the bandits blurted out. Naglad shot a quick glare at the bandit who mouthed, "Only trying to help" but then focused his attention again on Naomi.
"Well, aren't you going to tell me then?" Naomi asked them all.
"We can have our breakfast and then tell you, can't we?" Lucy answered, smiling as she patted the seat next to her, gesturing for Naomi to sit down.

"Sure...okay then," Naomi said through gritted teeth. She really wanted to know, but she didn't count all of the bandits so she wasn't sure if anyone wasn't there or not. Naglad started a fire and then pulled out some pork and began to roast it. There was one slice for everyone and Naomi got the most burnt slice - but she didn't care, she liked burnt stuff anyway. She took it off the stick and started to chew it as she handed the stick, which was covered in fat, back to Naglad. It was lightly raining and the rain pattered down into the bucket and onto the leaves.
Naomi then saw something which she had not noticed before. The tree's branches were tilted downwards, towards the bucket so that any drop of rain that fell onto the leaves would roll down them and into the bucket. Naomi liked that idea and thought about it as everyone finished their bacon. She then fell out of her daydream. "Aren't you going to tell me then?" she repeated again, rather impatiently.
"Oh yes," Naglad said, grinning. "Um...we were thinking, and uh...well... we would like, uh...you, to be our leader?" he asked, his tone of voice raising at those last few words.
"Whoa...really? That seems like fun! I'll do it!" Naomi responded as quick as a flash. Lucy chuckled at Naomi. "But you've got to understand that being leader isn't just a game. It's a rank of importance, and we think you have the qualities to be our leader, so..." Naglad explained. "We're happy that you've accepted our offer anyway."
"Thank you very much, though," Naomi answered back, smiling brightly.

~-~Chapter 7~-~

Later on, Naomi and Lucy were made officially members of the Vetini Vati bandit gang as they received their badges. They were discussing some things and they were proudly wearing their badges and showing them off to each other playfully when a loud knock on the beautiful door interrupted their conversations. Naglad opened the door and Naomi recognised the man who was standing there, his face - which was Genielli's.
"Excuse me, but I'm looking for Naomi?" Genielli asked cautiously. Naomi poked her head around the bedroom door so that Genielli would notice her, and he did. "Oh, there you are! Erm...I need to talk to you," he said quietly. Naomi nodded, narrowing her eyes in suspicion as she walked out the door with Genielli. "Go on, what is it? I'm kind of busy managing the camp," she said huffily.
"You know the city that I used to live in, Dnalfle?" Genielli queried. Naomi nodded. "Well...it's been over-run."
"Oh my goodness...Really? How do you know?" Naomi responded.
"Well, I went to Dnalfle to get some herbs for my hospital work and when I entered the portal it was in ruins. I saw loads of elves being taken captive, some of which used to be my friends before I moved here. The people wore badges that looked like multiply signs, like an X. I asked someone who they were and they said they were the 'Itav Initev.' They're a bandit gang."
Naomi took this all in. He continued. "What I came here for was, would you like to join my army with your bandit gang so that we can defeat them and get rid of them, sending them back where they should be?"
"Well...I don't really know," Naomi answered. "I'll have to discuss it with the rest of Vetini Vati to see what they think of the idea, but when we've made a decision we'll come back to you. How about you come to our den tomorrow and I can tell you what the decision is? That will probably give us enough time to discuss it. That okay?"
"Yes," Genielli said. "Goodbye and I hope you can help."

He teleported away, Naomi not knowing where he went to. Feeling like she wasn't needed anymore, she walked back into the den and shouted for everyone to come to her. They did and they sat down. "Who was that guy?" Naglad asked.
"One of my old friends," Naomi answered. "But there's a more important thing that we need to think about right now. Right, first question. Does anyone know about the Itav Initev?"
Everybody replied yes except for Lucy. Naomi asked one of the bandits what they knew of the Itav Initev. He replied, "Well, we used to be a hostile to them and we always hated them, and they hated us back. But when we had fights we won nearly every single battle."
"Why do you want to know though?" Naglad asked curiously.
"Because 'that man' who talked to me, Genielli, needs us to battle the Itav Initev soon at Dnalfle, his planet. Don't worry where it is though, I know where so you can stop worrying about that. So, how do you think of the idea?"
"Definitely!" the bandits cried in unison.
"Excellent," Naomi said, a big smile on her face.
~-~
The next morning, the group were packing up and luckily Naglad had some tents that they could fold away when they didn't need them, and all of them knew how to pitch a tent, as Naomi had done it when she was a bit younger. They had gathered all their belongings and had their badges shown clearly on their clothes so that if people would see them at any time during their travel, they would know exactly who the gang was.
Another knock on the door sounded. This time, Naomi opened the door. Genielli was standing there. "So, by the way you're packing, I'm guessing you all agreed to help?" he asked hopefully with a nervous smile on his face.
"Yes, are you going to come along with us?" Naomi answered.
"I don't know, is it alright with your bandit gang?" Genielli queried.
"It doesn't matter because I'm the leader of the group and they follow what I say," Naomi explained, a small smile on her face.
"Nah, I probably shouldn't.

I'll wait for you at the portal though," Genielli responded.
"That's too bad. Oh well..." Naomi sighed.
"I'll be seeing you then," Genielli said as he waved goodbye and walked off into the depths of the forest, only to be seen again when the bandits, Lucy and Naomi finally reached the portal. So Naomi and the gang set off, and left the den. They went deeper and deeper into the forest, the bandits not knowing where they were going but Naomi seemed to, even though she didn't quite know either.
"So where exactly is this Dnalfle?" one of the bandits asked Naomi.
"Well, I don't know where it is from where we are at the moment, but I know one landmark that might help us out..." Naomi replied as she started walking in a reversed 4 shape and then kept walking west. A straw hut appeared in the distance. "Oh!" A quiet gasp escaped Lucy's throat.
"Yep, you know what it is," Naomi said smugly. They kept walking.
"What IS it though?" Naglad questioned as he scratched his head thoughtfully.
"It was the hut that we lived in before we went into the woods for the werewolf attack. Basically, it's where the letter went," Naomi explained.
"Oh..." the bandit gang chanted in unison.
"Hey, I have an idea. How about, since we idiots forgot to bring any food, as I just realised, how about I go into the hut and get some food and clothes for us?" Lucy suggested. "Give me fifteen minutes and I'll get everything done by then."
"That sounds great!" Naomi said. "How about you, Naglad?"
"Fine by me," Naglad responded. The hut was a few feet away from them now, and they had stopped walking. Lucy ran into the hut and precisely fifteen minutes later her arms were full with food. "Put it into your backpacks and I'll go get your clothes which you can put in your backpack," Lucy said to Naomi as Naomi nodded and Lucy rushed into the hut again. Shortly after she entered, she exited the hut, closed the door and filled Naomi's backpack with clothes. She put some in her own backpack too.

They then carried on with their journey, albeit being heavier than before.
Ten minutes later, Naomi put her hand to her forehead and peered out into the distance. There seemed to be a faint green glow behind one of the trees, which was had a very thick trunk and was very rough-looking. "We're nearly here," Naomi muttered, smiling but loud enough so that everybody in the group could hear her. They kept walking in the direction that Naomi was going, following her until Naomi suddenly stopped. The green portal was very clear now...and a figure was standing next to it.
"Genielli!" Naomi cried excitefully. Genielli was obviously in a daydream and was not paying attention because when he heard Naomi's cry, he looked startled and Naomi was near enough to see his expression. "Oh good, you're finally here!" he said pleasantly. "Are you ready and fully equipped?"
"Yes, as far as I know. Vetini Vati?" Naomi turned to face the rest.
"Yes, yes," the bandit gang all responded.
"But I'm a little bit hungry," one of them said.
"Oh, you'll get to eat later. Right now, there's a slightly more important thing to do; help out the elves in Dnalfle and win this war. We have to give the elves back their home," Naomi ordered. Then Naomi noticed something. The portal was a bright, bush-green when Naomi first saw it back in the days where Lucy was injured and she was in the hospital. Now it had a slight greyish tint to it. "All right. So, are you ready to witness what Dnalfle looks like?" Genielli announced. Mixed mutterings and whisperings emerged from the group of bandits. "I'm taking that as a yes," Genielli said. "Just jump into the portal and the portal will escort you to Dnalfle."
So they, one by one, jumped in, Naomi being the last person to jump. They stood in awe at what surrounded them. They were in Dnalfle.

~-~ Chapter 8 ~-~

The planet was definitely not beautiful any more, as Naomi had last seen it. It was a complete grey with some parts foggy and some parts misty, and that moment the clouds were black and it was raining heavily, to match the scene. Naomi could see, in the distance, little green figures walking with weights attached to their backs with their hands tied together around the backs of the weights. She could see loads of little lines of them, and guessed that the Itav Initev had lots of members. That was when half of her brain began to argue the other side of her brain. Just because the Itav Initev could have lots of members didn't necessarily mean that they were tougher than the VV, though. They could all just be very bad fighters whilst Naomi's gang had few members, but they were very adept at fighting.
She turned her head to the right. There were the remains of what used to be the forest, chopped up and burnt to pieces. She felt quite a bit of sadness. Not just because the forest was burnt down which made lots of animals habit in that forest homeless and die. It was because the ingredients to the healing potion came from there, and if there wasn't any forest there wouldn't be any ingredients. That meant all the elves that were injured by this Itav Initev bandit gang had to be sent to the hospital, which was where Genielli worked. But since they could not get the ingredients to heal the people, many died in the hospital.
Then Naomi saw a person, who looked like a human, with his back turned to the Vetini Vati, standing and ordering the elves in front of him to do what he says. There were quite a few of the elves in front of the person. The man was wearing a cape, and it seemed to have a faint sort of symbol on it. Naomi put her hand to her forehead and tried to take a closer look.
The man was quite tall, about six feet in height, and he had long, black hair which was tied in a ponytail and wet because of the rain.

He had a short, pale neck and he was wearing a ripped light brown T-shirt with a black belt that was fastened tightly over it. Under his T-shirt you could see jet-black slightly baggy trousers, which were slightly ripped at the ends, showing his tanned ankles. Naomi thought this weird to have a pale neck and tanned ankles, but that was what he looked like. He was also wearing massive black boots that looked too big for his feet. Over his body that Naomi could see he had masses of scars, cuts and bruises, some big, some small, and he had very big muscles. Overall, he looked quite tough even from a back point of view.
The man had some, what looked like, black, heavy weights next to him, and next to those were two long pieces of rope for each of the weights. The poor elves were covered in black and dust, and they looked very thin and weak. "Now since you're too wimpy and weak to put on the weights yourselves, I guess I'll have to do it for you," the man huffily said. He had the first elf come forward. First, he made the elf bend back so that he could tie the weight firmly onto his back with the rope. The elf then tried to stand up straight but he couldn't because the weight was getting in the way and made him lean back down again.
Then the man ordered the elf to put his hand behind his back, over the weight. He did as he was told and the rough-looking man tied his hands together over the weight in a double knot. He sent that elf off and a bit later, all ten elves had weights attached to them and were being sent off to walk. He was about to receive another ten weak-looking elves when he suddenly heard one of the Vetini Vati whisper to another member of it. He turned around. "Hey...I recognise you, you, you...basically all of you except for the two girls. Where's Jacqueline?"
"Jaques died," Naglad explained, his eyes narrowing and he took a step forward towards the II member.

"Oh, by our forest fire! I knew it would work some magic!" the man exclaimed, a proud smile on his face. He was obviously pleased with himself for killing a person.
"YOU did it, Tienvak?" Naglad said furiously, taking another step forward.
"Anyway, who are these two ladies here?" Tienvak asked, looking in Lucy and Naomi's direction.
"The names are Lucy and Naomi," Naglad said quietly.
"So, Lucy and Naomi, why have you been brought here when you obviously don't seem to be fighting material?" Tienvak taunted, grinning.
"Oh, you haven't seen how Naomi fights yet-" Naglad started to say.
"Yeah, I bet it's not very good. After all, she's only a little girl. Don't worry, I saved your breath by saying it for you," Tienvak interrupted.
"I was going to say that she was excellent," Naglad growled.
"Oh, come on! How old are you, twelve?" Tienvak jeered, laughing.
"Eleven," Naomi answered through gritted teeth.
"Exactly! How could she be fighting material?" Tienvak asked, not expecting any answer, least from Naomi.
"Well, I could show you if you want," Naomi said, shrugging but then smiling nastily.
"Yeah, like that's going to do me any harm! Just go away, you're too unimportant for what I'm doing now," Tienvak sniggered as he turned back to what he was doing and called the other elves forward. He repeated the method he did before and the elves were sent off. Then he turned around to face them again after receiving the third batch of elves Naomi had seen.
"So where are the elves going off to?" Naomi asked, an eyebrow raising.
"They're going to work at - Oh, I'm never going to tell you," Tienvak replied, grinning again. "They're in a place which you'll never find them." ~We'll see about that...~ Naomi thought as a small smile crossed her face and the man turned back, revealing to Naomi's eyes the top half of a gadget which looked like it was made by an elf. She looked closer. It appeared to have the words "Village List" on it. She grinned.

Stealthily, she snuck up to the back of Tienvak and with her thumb and index finger, tried to prise the gadget out of his pocket and into her hands - but she was unsuccessful.
The Itav member must've felt it because as quick as a flash he turned round and caught Naomi red-handed. He pulled a walkie-talkie (which also looked like it had been made by elves) out of his other hand and spoke into it: "Right, Iíve caught member of hostile gang stealing from me, need assistance to kill them immediately. O-"
The walkie talkie dropped onto the ground. Tienvak was so focused on calling his fellow members to help him that he didn't notice what Naomi was doing, or what she was about to do. She did a swift side-stroke with her blood-stained rapier through the man's waist which chopped him in two, the upper body and the lower body separated from each. His life-blood spurted out from the cut Naomi had made and made a pool surrounding the dead Itav Initev gang member.
Gingerly, Naomi picked up the walkie-talkie and she heard a voice. "Are you there?" She guessed that was one of the other gang's members, so she spoke into it: "Hello. This is the new leader of Vetini Vati speaking. If we see you and you try to kill us then we will kill you like we did with your leader. Thank you. Over and out."
Then, Naomi picked up the "Village List" gadget in her hands and inspected it. As she explored it to see what it did, she found out that it actually listed all the population of Dnalfle and all the villages. She toyed with it a bit more and searched for "rich". She only found one result in the whole of Dnalfle; which was the royal castle. When she tapped the text "Royal Castle" she found its address and location, as well as its directions. "Come on guys! Before the rest of the Itav Initev catches up with us!" Naomi hissed at the Vetini Vati and they hastily followed her, knowing that she knew where she was going.
