"I guess all good things have to end... eventually." he said. "Do I at least get a headstart? No wait, that's quite stupid to ask. I'll make my own." he finished roughly on his tone, raising Hyperion and pulling the trigger six times, three each for two hounds, crippling them. He said a few last words "Then pray I don't end up mangled." Before slinking into the deep cover of the trees.
The hounds yelped and shreiked, but soon other hounds ran from the trees after him. She frowned, unhappy with how things were turning out. Yet she couldnt change the outcome of any of it and for now followed aswell. Hopeful he would get away.

He shifted cover to cover, taking advantage of every mistep, every carelessness, every little detail that the hounds missed, and filled their bodies with bolts of pure magic, causing spectacular displays of destruction. Every time he would gather up the crystals. There must be some way to reverse the crystal's soul containment effect.
If they were down to playing games, this would be the most dangerous rendition of hide and seek he'd every played.
They continued to shreik and chase, the crystals hissed angrilly at him, the souls contained inside them were pure evil themselves. Yet soon the hounds numbers dwendled, she quietly tossed the page aside as it lit up in a magical flame and turned to ash. The hounds easily picked off, yet she had many more crystals to use, and many more beasts to use them on.
She soon lunged down in his path, glaring some, her crystal growing brightly, some kind of creature clung to her back allowing her the use of wings. She muttered, "You better return those... holding on to them to long will be quite dangerous to your health..."

He brought out the piece of cloth that was holding the crystals. He was no sharp shooter, but he did have skill. He threw them towards her, and shot the crystals. the unstable magical interaction causing a micro-explosion, temporarly lighting up the area with blinding light. "Whoops!" He sarcastically exclaimed. "My trigger hoof was abit happy." and he continued on his running around.
She yelped and shook her head, "Wait!" she snapped at him, though once the crystas were destroyed the souls escaped, shreiking angrilly, they were twisted souls of very twisted ponies, they hissed and were quick to retreat into her cystal.

He quickly turned around when he heard her yell. Only to see the dark energy from the destoryed crystals surging into her crystal. He could only think of two words that would perfectly describe the situation turning grim.
She tensed for a few minutes than relaxed and sighed, they couldnt take over her body sence she already contained her own soul. She looked at him than looked aside a moment, "Things are going to get bad..." she muttered, "Dont worry I wont attack you, nor can they do anything as long as their in my gem... since none are out anyways I have some free will atleast."

'Damn, I though they'd dissipate. Your boss sure is one tricky bastard." he said, slightly panting. "So what happens now? Will you be okay? Or will you begin to get corrupted and turned over?" He asked, slightly worried about her. Hyperion was still raised though, just incase. His gut was telling him things were just beginning to get nasty.
She walked closer, if allowed she would nuzzle his cheek as before, "I dunno, he'll probably tell me to do something else... right now they cant change me because I've been somewhat... renforced?" she shruged, "I'll somewhat survive I supose... theres an attack being planned soon though... I... I hope you of all ponys will avoid it..."

"So you're effectively bound to his every whim?" he asked, allowing her to come closer, as he lowered Hyperion, almost dropping it. "Please. Let me help, I can break his hold, maybe stop the attack in the process." he added, emotions starting to show. "You don't seem to be a bad pony, you're just twisted by another with a mind for chaos." he said.
She smiled some, "Your a really good pony... Its not my choice even if you remove this I will have to return to him..." she sighed, "It seems hes been watching me... and you... so I just..." her smile saddened, "I'd really hate to loose such good company."

He went into a much more sadder mood, a tear of two forming in his eye. "I know there must be some way. Everything that exists has a way. Otherwise the universe would come to an end, because it would be confuzzled" he added. "There must be some way to save you..." he drifted off.
