Part 5

I hope she is in this town. Why did I run of like that? Zel thought.

"Let's spread out and look for her." Lina said and the others nodded.

"I'll go and check the inns. Gourry you can go with me. Zel were will you go?"

"I'll go and check the library."

"What about you Xellos?"

"I don't know? Maybe float around a little." He said and smirked.

They parted and went to the places they had decided to. Lina and Gourry went to the nearest inn to check. They asked around but didn't find anything special. At the last inn they found out that a girl came in early that morning and asked to be waked after lunch.

"Did she say were she was heading?"

"No but she started talking a strange language when she ordered the room. I didn't understand a word until she started speaking English."

"That's her. We have to go." She turned to face Gourry.

"Gourry we have to find Zel and tell him what we found out."

Meanwhile at the library Zel was talking to the librarian.

"Haw you seen a girl here who was looking fore something special like a cure fore something?"

"Yes there was a girl here who asked fore some books about Spirit separation. Very nice girl but she did talk to her self in a very strange language."

"That's her. Can you show me the books she read?"

"Of course, this way."

She showed him to the place Kim had been just half an hour ago.

"This is the book she found most interesting." She gave Zel the book.

"Thank you."

"I'll be at the desk if you got any questions."


Zel sat at a table and started reading. When he had finished half the book Lina and Gourry came through the door and walked over to him and sat down.

"Did you find anything?"

"Yes. She slept at an inn not far from here and left at lunchtime. What about you?"

"She came here and looked fore something in this book."


"I think she is going to try to separate herself from Amelia's body."

"SHE IS GOING TO TRY TO DO WHAT!" All the people in the library stared at Lina and the librarian hushed at her.

"Sorry." Lina said and sat down again.

"She is going to try to separate herself from Amelia's body. And it isn't safe from what I have read."

"What is she going to do then?"

"She is going to a place called The Sole Temple."

"And where is that temple then?"

"It's a 10 days walk from here. But there are some things she need so that she can go throu with the separation."

"And what are these things?"

"The first thing is water from the holy spring, the second thing is a drop of pure Mazuko blood and the last thing is a scale from a golden dragon."

"That means that we have to split up. One have to go to that spring and one have to go and keep an eye on Filia. And one has to keep an eye on Xellos."

"Well I'm going to that spring because she probably going there first."

"Ok Zel. Gourry you can go and keep an eye on Filia ok?"

"Ok. Um...who are we looking fore again?"

"GOURRY we are looking fore Amelia. No I men we are looking fore Kim."

"Ok. Who is she?"

"Don't bother, we are just looking for her."

"Ok and what was I suppose to do?"

"AAAAAA...GOURRY YOU ARE GOING TO FILIA'S PLACE!" Ones again everyone in the library stared at Lina.

"Excuse me miss. I have to ask you to leave now." The librarian said with an irritated voice.

"We were just about to leave." Zel said when he rose from the table.

"Ok, did you find what you were looking fore?"

"Yes I did, tank you fore your help."

"You're welcome."

The three slayers left the library and went there separate ways.

When night fell Kim had made camp in a cave in the woods because she didn't what the others to find her. Not fare from the cave Zel came walking. He had picked up Amelia's magic signature an hour earlier.

I know you are near and this time I wont let you go.

The signature was getting stronger now and he spotted the cave.

"Please be in there." He said to himself.

When he entered the cave he saw Kim on the caves floor sleeping. He walked over and kneeled down beside her. He looked at her and saw that she was shivering he put his hand on her forehead. She had a high fewer.

"Damn, way did you leave?" He took his cloak and wrapped it around her and held her in his arms.

"I will newer let you go, and that's a promise." He said and kissed her lightly on her forehead.

"Zel...what are you doing here?" He heard a week voice ask.

"I came fore you. I didn't want you to leave."

She sat up and looked into his eyes.

"Why? I'm not Amelia and you know that."

"Because I love you." He said and smiled.

"It will take some time to get used to that you're not Amelia, but I will do it."

"You...L..Love me?"

"Yes, and I always will."

She just smiled at him and laid down into his arms and fell asleep again.

Next morning the fewer was gone and they started walking towards the holy spring.



"I don't know what will happen to me when I separate from Amelia's body. I maybe return to my old body or die, because I don have a body in this world."

"Can't you get a body in this world then?"

"Yes. But I can't use that sort of magic, and nether can you."

"Ho can then?"

"Xellos can....but I wont ask him because I already know he will say no."

"It must be someone ells who can. There must be."

"I still need to get a droop of his blood."

"How will you do that?"

"I don't know. Any suggestions?"

They retched the spring later that afternoon.

"Can I borrow your water holder Zel?"

"Sure, here you go." He handed the water holder to Kim.

"Thank you." She gave him a small smile.

"That's the first ingredient. Now I need a drop of Maszuko blood. The tricky thing is, how I'm going to get it?"

"Are you people talking about me? They heard an annoying voice from above them."

"XELLOS!" They yelled in union.

"Wasn't Lina supposed to keep an eye on you?" Zel said with irritation in his voice.

"How easy do you think it is to keep an eye on ME?" Xellos said with his ordinary smile.

"Well how long haw you been here?" Kim said and looked at the trickster priest.

"Long enough to hear what you need."

"And I spouse you won't just give it to us. What do you want then?" She asked.

"I want...."
