Yuji once again scrunched up his nose as he read the request flier taken from the Adventurer Guild. As a hard believer that everything (almost everything) should be tasted at least once he had done so with meladeer. This is why the boy was wondering if who-ever made this request knew what they were asking for.

To anyone feeling up to the task. Please, deliver 3 corpses of a meladeer. Additionally, to the generous reward, you will also be able to keep the horns as we only need the meat.

Now, the Gaiyan has never been one to refuse a payday. If he wanted to travel around and buy ALL of the shinies, he needed it. And while Yuji knew that meladeer's meat tasted just god awful, the boy wasn't about to pass up a quest. Especially, a well-paying one.

As he entered Hoptus forest the boy went on all four, his split tongue poking out to taste the air, eye whites turning black as he focused. Finding the deer won't be problematic. Killing it, though...That's a different, much more painful, thing. Those critters were strong for their classification.

While trying to be quiet and fast, Yuji moved through the underbrush at a steady pace. First, he needed to get deep enough for having any luck in finding meladeer. They weren't really fond of bright, sunny clearings. A musky, strong scent caught his attention, familiar from the time he tried eating one of these creatures himself. Yuji didn't expect to catch it so soon, though, it could be just some hunter with a fresh kill. He will just need to see it for himself.

Seems like this will be a good day! The serpent thought while eyeing his prey. It was a shady patch, trees growing closer together and blocking most of the direct sun rays. The meladeer was nibbling on a young sprout of some sort of tree. Yuji couldn't really tell what was it as the boy's memories consisted mostly of farm plants. No trees, sadly.

Yuji focused his mana, feeling how it gathered in his palm before changing its nature and turning into pure wind. [Windlock] was released at the unsuspecting animal. Upon contact, Yuji followed it, leaving the bush he used for hiding. [Fireball] wasn't an option this time as there was too high of a chance for something to catch on fire, such, he used his claws, aiming for the deer's soft spots.

He managed to hit the meladeer's left side and the back of its leg before the animal's hoof caught his shoulder, pushing the male away. Yuji quickly regained his footing, though, his magic armour had turned off from overload and the place he got hit slightly throbed. His prey looked worse, barely standing. It prepared for a gore attack and charged. Yuji went to face it head-on, though, halfway the male ducked to let his claws sink in the beast's neck.

A couple of minutes later Yuji was attaching a small pebble to the corpse of the deer. They were given in the guild for such quests when taking horses would be only a bother. He mumbled the passphrase and in the next moment, the deer corpse was no more. "That...That's pretty neat! Useful, for sure." A tiny, muttering sound next to him seemed to agree as Yuji sagely nodded. Than stopped. He turned around. If someone would ask later, no, he didn't scream. No one had proof he did.

After, probably, scaring every animal in a five-foot area away the serpent calmed down because he heard the little flame chuckle. CHUCKLE!? It then attempted to get in his leather messenger bag being the rude fire...Something it was. "Hey, hey, hey! There are flammable things inside!" He said, getting the hot fire creature away from his belonging. More cute/offended sounds were made, Yuji trying to figure out what could be that the creature so much wanted. It hit him then.

"Riiiight, here you go!" As the boy said that he gave the tiny one a piece of coal that he kept in his bag. Yuji started keeping a piece or two with him ever since a kind man in Otenshire thought the boy basics of writing. When bored he would use it to write letters on hard surfaces. Or, just, pretty pictures. Seemed that it was just what the tiny one wanted, the wisp enveloping the coal and making happy noises as he did that.

Yuji smiled at that. He could feel something warm blooming in his chest as he watched the tiny flame being. While he didn't know precisely what it meant he knew that just now the young serpent had found a friend.
"Well then, come with me! I still have two more deer to hunt."

The tiny flame creature fully understood what Yuji was doing when he started skulking, reducing its own size and light to something similar to a firefly. As expected, the commotion in the forest had scared many animals away but that didn't concern the serpent too much. This meladeer shouldn't have been here in the first place and, such, Yuji still hoped they will find plenty of them when deeper in the forest. If they don't run into something way too strong before that.

As the trees grew larger the light dimmed, though, it wasn't even noon. It felt like twilight in the forest, something magical, and for a moment Yuji allowed himself to forget why he was here to just soak up the moment. That ended fast, though, as soon he sensed that more deer were around. Quite many, actually. He tried picking one direction and, upon doing so, went there, sticking to the shadows and watching so his own scent wouldn't give the gaiyan away.

His first pick was a bust as there were too many of them and together with young bucks. The orphan in him didn't allow to attack a family. It then took a bit of time to find a new direction but once he did that the boy didn't take long to reach his prey. This time he was in luck, they were two and with no babies. Both male, if judged by the horns.

As before, he cast [Windlock] at one of them while launching an attack at the other one. The male attacked from the side, so he wouldn't get hit by horns or legs. He went in there without mercy, going, first, for the lungs and, then, for its soft underbelly. This, though, meant that he didn't see the other beast pushing through the initial shock of being hit by the spell and charging at their attacker.

Yuji got the full force of its horn attack, feeling how it pierced his skin and muscle. Clumsily stepping back, he decided, the heck with it, and cast [Fireball], using that the beast was distracted with that to go for an all-out attack. The damage from the spells, plus, few well-placed attacks took the last meladeer down for good.

"Shit, that last one hurt!" The small elemental got closer, looking concerned for the boy's health but he just brushed it off while pressing down on the bleeding wound. By gathering mana and moister in the air he formed a bubble of water around his body. It started healing him and while it did require two casts of [Quence] to repair the damage, at the end of it Yuji was good as new.
"See? All's fine! Now, let's send these to the guild and get my pay before anyone finds out how bad that meat tastes."
