Erry’s story part 3 : Erelle

cover3

This story happened a long time ago… A time where humans and the tiny people known as ‘micros’ weren’t living in the ‘same world’… The ‘tinies’ as called by humans are so small that their size is a little above 2 cm… Life isn’t easy for them since they’re always used as toys by the humans, considered like a ‘lower sub species’ even if they look like human people so much… The worst happened when an old legend came to light… “eat a tiny one and it will make your body beautiful”. It was used as a pretext by the humans, who could now eat them without any remorse… Some restaurants also added them to their menu and there’s the famous cooking TV show “How Will You Eat Your Tiny Today ?”. Surviving every day… It’s how the small people live now… Hiding from humans wherever they can… In a house’s wall… Digging holes to hide in… Or even inside a tree… Of course some humans tried to protect them… But their littles lives are so hard to protect that every attempt to protect the small people failed… But it wasn’t always like this… Hundreds of years before this horrible story started for the tiny ones… When humans ‘discovered’ them …
A nameless island in the middle of the sea… It was the age of the knights and kings… Where people believed in magic and some of them could use it… There is where everything started…

Erelle was waking up… The sun was so bright that her eyes closed when the white light shone through the window… The girl had a peaceful night… Exiting her bed she stretched her naked body in front of the window… She was living in the ‘upper city’ so nobody could have seen her by her window… The sun was making her white hair ‘glow’ with its delicate light… Erelle smiled at the sun… Then turning around she opened a drawer and took a one-piece white dress inside… And put it on her young body. Opening the door of her room she put her sandals that were in front of the room and walked in the hall, she was now in front of her house’s entrance.

Opening her door, she bathed in the sun’s rays… Her hair shining even more when she exited the house. A girl was sitting at the portal… She had red hair and was looking sick… When she saw Erelle she sat on her knees and put her head on the ground “P…. Princ…” But Erelle stopped her and put a hand on the girl’s shoulder “Don’t call me like that, please… We’re the same you and I… But since you came here, tell me, what can I do for you ?” The girl was smiling but was holding her arm… Some tears were running down her cheeks “it was during my work… We were building a new house … I fell on the ground … And my arm…” Erelle nodded and placed her hand on the girl’s arm “I understand… Let me see it, please.” The girl wasn’t moving… Her lips shivering from the pain she was feeling, her arm was probably broken… Finally Erelle placed a gentle hand on the girl’s arm, the other one on the girl’s cheek. Erelle’s eyes were deep blue… And there was a strange glow in them… She was smiling… “To you who came here looking for help… I give you my blessing.” A white and blue glow appeared on Erelle’s back, in the shape of two wings of light… A tiny crown shape also appearing on Erelle’s forehead… The red haired girl closed her eyes, Feeling the light going deep inside of her… Then it disappeared with the glow that was surrounding Erelle… The girl’s arm not broken anymore, tears of joy filled the girl’s eyes… She wanted to hug the younger girl that was in front of her… But she had too much respect for that… Erelle smiled and took a step forward… Wrapping the girl in her arms… “Don’t be shy… I told you that we’re the same you and I…” The girl was crying from joy “Thank you… Thank you !!” She was still looking away… Too shy to look at Erelle’s eyes but she was respecting her. Bowing in front of the white haired girl she thanked her again then went back into the city… Leaving Erelle smiling while looking at the girl who wasn’t suffering anymore.

Erelle was one of the ‘chosen ones’… There wasn’t many of them on the island and they all shared this unusual hair color, they all had different ‘powers’ but Erelle wasn’t the kind to ‘show’ them in public… She was more reserved and prefered to live just like any other of her kind. Some people called them kings and queens but Erelle never really cared about that ‘title’, as long as she could help anybody it was fine for her.

Erelle was walking in the city. She loved to see some kids gathering around her even if she was young too with her 16 years, she went and sat at a wide place where all the ‘adventurers’ were telling tales of their adventures. A brown haired man, in his thirties, walked at the center of the place. Noticing Erelle sitting on the side, he bowed in respect towards her “I’m happy to see you again here, Princess.” Erelle blushed and answered by a sign with her hand. She listened to his tales… He had taken a boat and crossed the blue sea… Went places no one ever went before and saw some strange creatures too… He was talking about girls made of water… Nagas, those girls who had a snake’s tail instead of legs and the ‘giants’… Erelle never saw any of those creatures… But she believed that they existed outside of the island. Passing a hand in her hair she was wondering how big the world really was, even if she didn’t really want to leave the island… After all, even if she left this safe place she wouldn’t last long outside… She was so small after all, even smaller than an apple…

Life was always like that for those people… They didn’t know how small they were since they didn’t know anything from outside of the island and the ‘adventurers’ also prefered to return home once they travelled enough… Some of them also never came back, either getting lost in the gigantic sea or preferring to continue exploring and never come back… But soon everything would change…

It was time to go to the ‘temple’. It was a place where the 5 ‘chosen’ would meet each week. Erelle took a seat and looked around, she was the first to arrive. A girl came near with a bottle “Do you want to drink anything, Princess?” Erelle looked at that girl… She was probably her age “No thanks… And please call me Erelle, I don’t like that title…” The girl looked a bit surprised… It was the first time she worked at the temple… But she didn’t expect to hear this from a ‘chosen one’… The girl bowed “I’m sorry…! But this is what you deserve, Princess… I’m honored to talk with you but I’m just a servant and I have to respect you…” Erelle stood up and walked in front of the girl “What is your name?” The girl blushed… Looking away “I… My name is… Rin… But you don’t need to remember this…” Erelle put a hand on the girl’s shivering shoulder… Not wanting to make Erelle mad at her “I’ll remember you, Rin.” Said Erelle with a smile… “Look at me, please… We’re the same… We have the same body… Almost the same height and I could tell that we’re both 16… Of course I have this white hair… But Rin, we’re the same and I’ll respect you for this… So please, don’t be shy with me.” Erelle took the girl’s hand between hers, the girl bowing her head “I… I understand… Prin… Er… Erelle. Thank you.” Said Rin, her cheeks blushing bright red… But feeling not as shy as before. “You’re welcome, Rin. Besides… Do you want to stay with me during our meeting…? It’s always the same topics and it’s a bit boring, haha ~” Rin was feeling so strange… One of the most important citizen wanted her to be her equal… Rin nodded “Thanks… But I won’t say much… I prefer to stay here to watch if possible” Erelle smiled “Thank you, Rin” while showing a chair right beside her, inviting Rin to sit.

A girl approached from the other side of the big room… She had long, white hair… Some of it hid her right eye but she didn’t pay it any mind… She was also one of the ‘chosen ones’ and sat at the table, facing Erelle and Rin. “Greetings Erelle, and to you too, miss.” Erelle bowed her head “Hello Aria, let me introduce you to Rin, she’ll be at my side for today’s meeting” Aria smiled, in fact she was the one Erelle got along with the most when she joined the ‘order’. Both of them also met sometimes in the city but Aria was a bit older atop of her 20 years. Five minutes passed and two men came inside the room… The younger one was Rhis, he was always shy but his blood and his ‘magic’ allowed him to join the ‘order’, he sat right beside Erelle “Greetings Aria, Erelle, miss…”. The other one was older, maybe 35 years old, he wasn’t really looking happy and his expression was hard… “Hmphf… A ‘commoner’ here…? I really don’t understand you, Erelle… You’re the most powerful among us but you still take care of them…” Aria stood up “Stop this, Basil ! The meeting hasn’t even begun and you’re already talking with that big mouth of yours !” Basil crossed his arms but wasn’t done yet “I’ll say whatever I want, Aria… We’re the leaders here and we’re more important than…” He couldn’t finish, Erelle stood up and was looking right in his eyes… Her eyes had a white glow… “Stop this, Basil. We’re not ‘leaders’ or anything… We were chosen by the Fate but we don’t have to be like this… Sit down… Now.” Basil had a shiver… Wanted to speak again but his arms fell on his sides, he was mumbling “… As you wish, Crown…” And sat at the table… Not saying anything more. Soon a last man entered the room… He had an uncommon haircut like a white flame on his head… He was also wearing a mask covering his face down to his nose “Welcome Fyr” said Rhis when he saw the pale-looking man approaching and sitting at the table silently… He wasn’t talking much and greeted the other ones with a sign of his hand.

The ‘council’ was now in session. The five of them were always talking about different subjects and how they could help the people with their powers. Aria was the closest to Erelle, she had the ‘power’ of the wind and could use it to move some heavy things, she was usually with Rhis when people needed to build some new houses. Rhis had the power of the earth, he was using it to develop the city and was also really active with minor tasks as long as it helped someone. Basil had a strange power, he could move things with his mind and was physically the strongest among the 5, he wasn’t much interested in helping anybody and was mainly ‘showing off’ his powers… Fyr did not have such a ‘wonderful’ power, but he could ‘see the future’… He was wearing a mask due to an accident he had when he was younger where his whole face was burnt in a fire… But whenever he talked, the four others listened because his prophecies carried very important information. Erelle was the youngest of them… She was the only one to ‘change’ when she was using her powers, she didn’t really know all of her powers but she could heal people and it was said on the island that she could control ‘Life’ itself as well as other things, still unknown to her. When she uses her power, two wings of light appear on her back as well as a light crown on her forehead. No one could tell why she was like this but she helped so many people in the city that they started calling her ‘the guardian angel’. Erelle didn’t really like this nickname but it was real that she was helping people with everything she could give.

Erelle never knew her parents… She was found at the ‘temple’ gate when she was a baby… But as she grew older, she stopped really wanting to ‘discover’ who her parents were… But was also helping everyone, maybe to fill this subconscious ‘need’ she had. The council was now talking about a new district that was needed for the city… The island was big enough to build many houses but they had to be far from the trees, during the ‘old times’, some apples, among other fruits, fell on the tiny houses and crushed them easily… It didn’t take long for them to start building their houses far from the giant trees. In this new district, many things were needed for the everyday life of the citizens. Rhis and Aria were already talking about some plans and Fyr was listening to them, nodding his head as an answer. Basil wanted every building to be ‘a piece of art’ but wasn’t really considering that some people would live inside… Erelle also gave some advice of her own and also asked Rin for some ideas…

Soon the meeting was over. Erelle bowed to everyone then walked outside of the main room, stretching her arms above her head “So Rin, was it interesting…?” The girl was walking beside Erelle and looked a bit lost in her thoughts “Hmmm it’s really nice to talk about developping the city… It was really interesting but some of you don’t really share the same ideas…” Erelle was looking at the girl on her side “Yes… But we always find a solution even if it’s kinda complicated with ‘him’… I’m sorry about what Basil said to you, Rin…” The girl shook her head “Don’t worry princ… Erelle. I’m used to this and it’s our task to help you after all…” Erelle was now looking at the sky, the girls were now outside of the ‘temple’. “Hmmm it’s getting a bit late… I don’t know if i should go back now or maybe go to the park and listen to some tales from the adventurers…” Rin was looking a bit shy “Erelle…? I would like to thank you for today if possible… Would you come to my house to share dinner with us…? I know that you’re living alone so maybe you would have some people to talk with tonight …?” Erelle was a bit surprised and smiled “Ah… It would be a pleasure, Rin. It’s always better to spend some time with friends, right ?~” and then both of the girls started to walk towards Rin’s house. On their way, some people bowed to Erelle, thanking her for some help she gave some days ago. Erelle bowed her head back and smiled to them, Rin was looking at all of those people “Did you help all of them ? It’s really impressive” Erelle smiled “There was a small epidemy last week and well… I treasure life more than anything so I couldn’t stay here and watch them suffer… ” Rin was looking back at Erelle “I knew that the ‘council’ could do amazing things… But I really respect the way you are with us… So close to everyone” Erelle lifted her head and was looking at the sky “I really like this city and its people… It’s so peaceful and everyone is friendly with each other even if there are some exceptions like ‘this man’…~” Rin blushed and had a giggle… Imagining how Basil’s friends would be like…

Soon the girls were in front of Rin’s house “I live here with my older sister Mira, she’s really kind and will love having you with us for tonight.” Rin opened the door to Erelle “After you, Erelle.” The white haired girl removed her shoes and put them next to the door, respecting the house she would enter and stepped inside, followed by Rin. “Princess Erelle…!?” Said the girl inside, surprised to see her, Rin went beside Erelle “Let me introduce you to my sister Mira.” Erelle smiled “Oh but don’t worry, I know her well already…” As the white haired girl put her hand on Mira’s arm… In fact it was the girl who came looking for some help this morning. Erelle smiled and told Rin what happened earlier in the morning, Mira also told how she broke her arm and how Erelle cured her. Mira was looking a bit shy at first but soon all of the 3 girls were talking easier. The two sisters looked very similar, except that Rin had black hair and Mira’s was red. Both of the sisters were really happy to have such a visit that night, and it was great to know that Erelle was really like them, not being their ‘princess’ or anything like that.

It was now late, Erelle put her sandals back as she exited the house, bowing to the 2 girls and thanking them again for this evening. Erelle was walking in the city at night… Even if it was dark there were still some people around, bringing life to the city even during the night. The girl was looking at the moon… So far from her above the already giant trees… She was smiling, thinking again about the two sisters and wondering if she would meet them again… Erelle stopped in front of her house… Someone was resting against the wall, waiting for her.

“Fyr…?” Said Erelle as she saw the masked man in front of her. “Erelle. We need to talk.” Erelle’s eyes opened as he was talking, it was something important to hear. “Something will happen soon… I can’t see your future precisely because of your ‘power’ but… You’ll have to do something soon… Something that will change everything we know about our world…” Clouds parted away and let the moon’s glow through… Making their hair ‘shine’ a deep white… Erelle wasn’t talking, just listening and looking at the man with her blue eyes “Be ready, Erelle… I will be counting on you… And be careful please…” Said Fyr, starting to walk away. “Wait Fyr…what is that supposed to mean…?” Said Erelle, shivering from this strange ‘revelation’… Fyr turned around and said some strange words “The rescue… The fake ‘dream’ … The angel in the sky… And an endless trip… That is what I ‘saw’… I can’t really tell what will happen… But be prepared, Erelle, I know that you will make the right choice and I won’t go against your decision.” And with this, Fyr turned around then went back on the road, leaving Erelle lost in her thoughts… The girl sat on a rock that was in her garden and looked at the moon… What happened just now…? She wanted to understand but couldn’t at this time… Sighing deeply she opened the door of her house then walked inside, still thinking about Fyr… He doesn’t usually talk much, but when he does, his prophecies always come true… Erelle went in her room and removed her shoes then her dress… ‘Bathing’ her naked body in the moonlight… Looking one last time through the window to see the whole city so alive even in the night, Erelle went into her bed and grabbed the cover… Slowly closing her eyes, she hoped that all that she learned tonight wouldn’t be something bad for her and the ‘world’ she loved to live in… And with a deep sigh, Erelle fell in a deep sleep…

Erelle didn’t sleep well that night… She woke up early in the morning, hearing some noise in front of the window… Was it some kids playing again…? In fact it wasn’t kids but Erelle couldn’t hear well yet… Passing a hand in her bright white hair she yawned then picked a dress from her closet and put it on… Stretching her arms she put on her shoes and walked to the door when she heard someone knocking on it “Erelle…! Open up, please !” Erelle opened her eyes wide… She knew this voice well but not usually panicked like this… Opening the door, Aria was here but she wasn’t looking as peaceful as usual… “Aria…? What do you …” But Aria cut her sentence “Not now…! It’s… A monster ! Right on the east beach !” Erelle was remembering what Fyr told her the previous night…. “Tell me more, Aria.” Said Erelle with a calm voice, putting a hand on Aria’s arm. The girl was now looking less stressed… Erelle was gifted at putting people at ease. Aria bowed her head “I really don’t know what it’s all about… But take my arm please, it will be easier to show you.” Erelle nodded and grabbed Aria’s arm, knowing what would happen next.

A tiny wind surrounded the girls… It became stronger and Erelle’s hair was moving fast… “Let’s go.” Said Aria and with a strong wind rising up, the girls raised in the air and were high above the ground within a second. Aria could fly with her ‘wind power’ but could also carry someone else with her and Erelle already tried this many times before. Aria wrapped her other arm around Erelle and the wind was now pushing them in the direction of the side of the island… There were lots of trees in the way… Aria moved to avoid getting near one of them and soon the girls were seeing sand on the ground, telling them that they were now close to their destination. Erelle’s lips and eyes were shivering… Watching something ‘unreal’… Both of the girls started to descend slowly and were soon back on the ground. Some people were here and Erelle could see Rhis but he was looking busy, Erelle was still looking at the so-called ‘monster’…

There were some big wood parts scattered on the sand… From maybe a tall ship…? But the most important was this ‘being’ right in front of Erelle… It was a young girl… A giant young girl… She was looking like a 10 years old girl but she was so huge that she could easily hold 12 people in her hand. But right now she was in a coma state… She had many wounds on her body and was also breathing irregularly… Moaning from pain from time to time… Erelle was feeling sad but this girl was… Dangerous. Who could tell what she would do if she found all the tiny ones around her…

“Kill her.” Said a man’s voice near Erelle. Hearing this she turned her head and saw Basil giving orders to some people “Is that the best solution, Basil?” Asked Rhis a bit scared, it was the first time she saw something like this on the island after all… “She’ll kill us if we don’t act first !” Yelled Basil, anger filling his eyes “And how do you want to do this ?” Asked Aria “Our powers aren’t strong enough to deal with this girl…” But Basil looked calm “Crown… You have to do this.” As he was looking at Erelle… She was surprised… The council asked her to kill an ‘innocent’ person? “But I don’t know if my powers would go this far…” Basil wasn’t done yet “It’s said that when you were younger you managed to bring someone back to life after an incident… You control even Life itself, Erelle ! So if you can give something you can also take it back ! You don’t need to think here… Just do it …!” Erelle was looking down at her hands… Was it the real solution…? She had to take this young girl’s life…? To kill her before anything could happen…? But before she could do anything the ground started shaking…

Two giant eyes… The girl had her head laying on the ground and was looking at the tiny ones right in front of her face… She had some blood on her forehead and her whole face was looking dirty… But she was also crying… Aria took a step back… Basil was so surprised he fell on his back, putting his hands in front of his face… Standing next to Erelle, Rhis wasn’t moving… Soon the giant girl’s lips opened… “He…lp… Me… Pl…ease…” And with a cry of pain the two eyes closed again… The blood dripping from the girl’s forehead mixing with her tears and falling on the ground… Basil stood up “Do it now… She’s weak enough… Kill her !” But Erelle turned around… “I won’t do that.” Basil looked furious and grabbed Erelle’s shoulders… Also yelling at her “What did you said ?! She’s a giant monster ! Look at her face ! Her mouth is big enough to devour our kids whole !! And her feet are tall enough to crush our houses easily !! She’s just a monster !!” Erelle had a white glow in her eyes “She’s alive… She’s dying here… She asked for help… And you want me to KILL HER ? What if some other like her come here to search for her …? What will you do then, Basil?” Erelle removed Basil’s hands from her shoulders, Aria walked closer “We can’t let her stay… But we can’t let her die here too …” Erelle nodded “All right… I’ll heal her wounds and… I’ll ask her to leave… Does that sound like the right thing to do for all of you ?” Rhis nodded “As long as you don’t bring her back to the city that’s fine with me.” Aria also agreed… Basil mumbled “Do what you want … ‘princess’…” Before turning back and walking away… “You should all go back to your houses people… Erelle will take care of this…” Said Aria, asking the people to ‘hide’ back in the city, surely it was far enough away from the beach. Aria then looked at Erelle “Will it be all right for you…? I mean I know that you have an incredible power within you even if we don’t know how far you can go with it, but it’s the first time we see something like her… If only Fyr was here he could have said something about this…” Indeed Fyr wasn’t here, Erelle was reminiscing about last night… Erelle will have something to do soon… Was it about what was happening now ? “I’ll be back, Aria… People are counting on us… And I’ll do whatever I have to do protect them… And also to protect this girl’s life… She’s not just a giant monster… She’s a young girl… She’s a living being and I can’t let her die alone…” Aria bowed, accepting her friend’s answer then, using the wind again, she raised in the air, looked at Erelle down on the ground then turning in direction of the city she let the wind push her back to her destination…

Erelle was standing on the sand in front of the giant girl… Looking at her face that was shivering from pain… She was wearing a simple white dress, torn at different parts and stained with blood… Erelle bowed her head down… Took a long breath… And raising her head she had another white glow in her eyes… Two flames appeared on her back, turning into the shapes of two wings, a white and a blue one… Another light on Erelle’s forehead became a light crown… Erelle put her hands in front of her and started to speak… Her voice was getting melodious… “Lost girl who is suffering… I give you my help.” And soon the girl’s body was coated in a soft white light… Her wounds started to close… The girl coughed and tried to open her eyes… Having difficulty breathing, she let out a gasp… “Are…you… An… An…gel…? Am… I … Dead…?” Erelle shook her head “You’re alive, young girl.” And with another glow coming out of this tiny girl, the ‘giantess’ was now healed, her wounds all closed and she could breathe naturally… Soon the wings and the crown disapeared as Erelle fell on her back, exhausted to have used so much of her ‘power’… After a long sigh, Erelle went limp and passed out…

Erelle’s eyes popped open with a gasp… She let out a tiny scream as she was wondering what happened… She looked around and finally realized that she was laying in that girl’s hand… And she was looking at her from above with two deep green eyes. Erelle shivered… Wondering what would happen, but the girl had a tear roll down her cheek “Ah… I’m glad that you’re fine tiny angel… I thought that it killed you to heal me…” Erelle was looking surprised and the girl talked again “How can I ever thank you for helping me… We were on a ship with my aunt … We were explorers but we got lost in a storm and a rock broke our ship… I thought I’d drown so I tried to swim but I was hurt… And before I could scream for help I sank in the water… Then I woke up here…” The girl put her hands in front of her face carefully so Erelle wouldn’t fall “But… What are you little angel…? I never saw anything like you before… I just heard tales about people like you…” Erelle was sitting “You don’t need to thank me young girl… I would be a monster if I left you to die there… My name is Erelle and I live here but I’m not really an angel…” The girl smiled and put her cheek against her hand… Pressing Erelle against her soft skin “And I’m Claire, I’m a human girl but ah… Did you find anyone else around…?” Erelle took a deep breath “I’m sorry but you’re the only one we found…” The girl was looking a bit sad “Oh… But there was another ship… I’m sure Auntie managed to escape and that they found her…” Erelle wanted the girl to think about something else “Do you feel all right now…? Is there something more I could do for you ?” As if it was replying, Claire’s belly growled… “Oh… I’m sorry… I think I’m a bit hungry after all of this…” Erelle had a shiver… Then looked around, there were some trees near them “Hmmm we have some fruits if you want, there might be some apples near the trees…” Claire nodded “I would love to. But first I would like to clean myself first.” Then the human girl put Erelle carefully on the ground before walking to the sea… Not even removing her torn dress she sat in the warm water and brushed all the dirt away… Also cleaning her face of the blood she lost before, she put some water on her hair to clean it… She was looking at all the closed wounds she had… There weren’t any scars remaining, if Erelle wouldn’t have there to heal them, the girl would probably be dead by now… Soon she was done with this and went back to Erelle, crouching near her she put her hand on the ground, inviting the small girl to climb on. Erelle looked at this young girl from below… She was now looking just like a regular child even if she was so tall… Erelle slowly walked onto the giant fingers and soon she was again sitting on the girl’s palm “Thank you for waiting for me. I really didn’t want to stay dirty like this … Even less in front of you, Erelle.” Erelle blushed, she was used to be thanked by different people but this time was different… Claire smiled to the small girl she was holding and went near the trees, there were some fruits on the ground and all of them looked good. Claire picked an apple in her other hand and sat against another tree where nothing could fall on the girls. Erelle was looking at this huge apple… It needed many people just to carry one in the city but Claire was holding it so easily… The girl noticed that “Do you want some, Erelle…?” And with a single nail, Claire took a tiny bit apart from the fruit and presented it to Erelle with a smile “Thank you, Claire.” Erelle took a tiny bite in the fruit, it was really something she loved but also one of the many fruits they could eat every day. Since there weren’t many animals on the island, they couldn’t hunt for meat and only heard of them in the adventurers’ stories… Claire raised the fruit to her face and took a large bite, making Erelle shiver again… She was so tiny compared to this giant face… But Claire didn’t look like a bad person. Soon the apple completely eaten… Claire rested her head against the tree and looked at the small girl “So, do you live here alone, Erelle? It would be hard for someone like you… Ah sorry I don’t want to say that…” Erelle smiled “Don’t worry about that… Usually I live in the city but… I’ll be honest with you, the ‘council’ prefers that I stay away from the city with you.” Claire was looking a bit sad “I guess they’re afraid of me… I can’t really do anything about this but I understand… And you’re ruled by an ‘order’ of something ?” Erelle nodded “We’re not really ‘ruled’… We’re living in peace with everyone but some of us were … ‘Blessed’ with some ‘powers’… We don’t really know about them but we try to use them to help everybody… All of this is ‘symbolized’ by the white hair we have.” Claire looked carefully “And this white fits you perfectly, Erelle… I really wish you could meet my aunt… She’s so kind too …” Said Claire with a sigh “I also never saw real ‘magic’ before… It was all in tales and such… But it was amazing to feel, all of this ‘light’ penetrating inside of me…”

The afternoon went smoothly… Erelle talked about where she was living and how life was in their city… Claire also talked about her own ‘world’… A giant kingdom ruled by a young queen… Many creatures also live there that Erelle heard about from the adventurers… Everything was real ! “But we have people of your kind, too, Erelle… But most of them aren’t really ‘human-looking’ like the nagas with half of their bodies being a snake… And they don’t talk much unlike you… They mostly hunt for food and sometimes bite us… But since they’re so small, it doesn’t really hurt …” Erelle was listening carefully … Remembering every small detail Claire told… And soon the sun started to ‘dive’ in the sea… The night was slowly coming up… The sand was still warm… And Claire found a small fabric among the ship parts, it was big enough for her to wrap herself in for the night… Laying on the warm sand and putting on her ‘cover’ the young girl yawned… And slowly closing her eyes “Good night, Erelle… I hope that you’ll be there tomorrow…” And soon her eyelids were closed as she easily fell asleep… Erelle was on the girl’s hand while she talked “Good night, Claire…” And jumping on the sand she walked a bit then turned around, looking at this giant girl… “I hope that we’ll be both alright…” Said Erelle before hearing some noise behind her.

“She’s sleeping just like one of our young girls …” Said a voice right behind Erelle who was still looking at the sleeping Claire “Aria… She looks so innocent… I just couldn’t abandon her here… It’s just like my own past…” Aria approached and put a cover on Erelle’s shoulders “And knowing you… You want to stay here for the night to see if something might happen… ” Erelle nodded but she was also thinking… The girl told about another ship… And probably more of those ‘humans’… “I’ll find a solution for her… I don’t want Claire to feel alone… And it’s not like she would hurt anybody… But…” Aria put her hand on Erelle’s head “I’m sure you’ll find something… And if you need anything just call me… I’ll stay around just in case…” Erelle nodded as Aria started to raise in the air and went back to the city. Erelle walked back to the sleeping giantess and wrapped herself in the cover Aria brought her. Laying her tiny body aside Claire’s face she fall asleep looking at the human girl…

It was early in the morning, Erelle’s eyes opened up as she heard a gust of wind near her… It was Aria and she was crying… “Hhmmm …? Aria…? What…?” But Aria grabbed Erelle’s hand “I need your help now Erelle, please!” Erelle was confused… Looking at Claire she was still sleeping and would need more time to fully recover… Erelle stood up “Tell me what happened.” Aria put her other hand on Erelle’s “It’s my little sister Erelle… She was playing with some of her friends near the south beach but… She tripped and fell down the cliff … And I wasn’t here to look at her …! I came as fast as I could and she’s still alive …! Erelle… I beg you… Help her !!” Erelle wrapped Aria in her arms “I understand, bring me to her.” And with a strong wind, the two girls were flying… Aria was pretty skilled at controlling her power… And soon they were above the city… Most people were still sleeping, some kids already running in the streets… Aria used the wind again and soon both of the girls were in front of Aria’s house. Erelle ran inside… Aria’s other younger sister was here, crying in front of the laying girl… She was really young and her body was broken in many places… She was barely breathing and moaning from a deep pain… Aria moved towards her and put her hand on the bleeding forehead of her sister “Nina… Erelle is here… Don’t worry…” The girl had tears in her eyes but couldn’t answer… Her arms were both broken, along with her right leg… She had many wounds on her body and was breathing slower… She wouldn’t last long at this rate… Aria took her other sister in her arms “Everything will be all right… Don’t cry…” But Aria was also crying as she was looking at Erelle “Please…” With a nod of her head, Erelle stood in front of Nina… Putting her hands to hold the girl in them Erelle sat on the ground… Nina’s head laying on Erelle’s chest… The white haired girl closed her eyes and started to hum a song… Still holding the broken girl in her arms, making her comfortable… Nina uttered a small cry… She was shivering… Erelle put her hand in Nina’s hair and started to speak… Her words were like a soft song… “Nina… It wasn’t your fault… Please come back to your sisters…” And soon two wings emerged from Erelle’s back… The crown on her forehead glowing a white light… The two wings wrapped around Erelle and the girl she was holding as Erelle started to sing again for her… “Now… Live!” Said Erelle… Just two words as her wings disappeared… Leaving Erelle holding Nina… Sleeping peacefully and not hurt anymore… Aria couldn’t resist but to cry “Erelle… Thank you so much …!” And with a smile, Erelle laid Nina back in her bed, putting the cover on her “I… I really wish I could heal people, too … ” said Aria with sad eyes “You’re also helping people too, Aria… I can’t help people as much as you do when you’re building those houses with Rhis… But I’m happy to have helped you and your sister” Aria bowed her head “I… Understand what you feel Erelle now… The fact that you helped this… ‘Claire’ too… I really understand how much you treasure ‘life’ and I won’t ever thank you enough for what you’ve done today…” Erelle smiled “As long as everyone is all right I’ll be happy, Aria…” The girl was now thinking of another girl she helped the day before “Claire…” It was still early… But Erelle wanted to be near her when she’ll wake up, not really wanting Claire to wander around and find the city… Aria put down her other sister she was holding… The young girl ran towards Erelle and hugged her legs “Thank you Erelle ! I’m happy that Nina is safe now !” Erelle put her hand in the girl’s hair, Aria talked again “I’ll bring you back to her if you want Erelle, Nina will sleep for some time and I could bring you back to Claire during this time.” Erelle nodded “I guess it would be better for all of us.” Once the girls were outside, Aria put her arms around Erelle and a warm wind surrounded them… Soon they were ‘flying’ again… Aria still holding tight to the girl who just saved her sister…

Soon they were near their destination but Erelle had a strange shiver… Finally some sand on the ground, the beach was near… But once they landed… Claire wasn’t here… “No…” Said Erelle… Were they late…? But there was something strange about this disappearance… Aria summoned the wind again and she was now flying above to scan the landscape… Erelle saw a surprised look on Aria’s face… And soon she was on the ground again “Did you see anything, Aria …?” The girl nodded “I saw some… Giant footsteps… Maybe 2 or 3 people like her… And there’s a big trail in the sand near the sea… Like if a boat was here…” Erelle was thinking… There was indeed another ship, as Claire told her… Did some other ‘humans’ come here to rescue her…? It was clearly the case… “I guess it’s better for her… To be with the ones like her…” Said Erelle in a whisper… Aria nodded “Hmmm so some other giants came here to bring her back…? They took her ‘cover’ too… She was just a young girl after all and we couldn’t keep her here forever too…” Erelle let a tear roll on her cheek… But it was the right thing to do… “Let’s go home, please.” Said Erelle… Aria nodded without a word and, grabbing Erelle’s arm, she called the wind again and the girls flew back to their city…

Claire was sleeping peacefully, wrapped in her ‘cover’… She had a tiny moan, smelling something nice not so far she slowly opened her eyes… And gasped… “Where… Where am… I…?” Noticing the wooden room and seeing the sea by the window, she guessed she was on a ship… But how did she manage to get here…? Sitting on the bed she was wondering if all of this was maybe just a ‘dream’… But it looked so real… Soon the door opened…. A blonde woman came in, she was wearing a light leather armor with some plate parts on her shoulders and her arms “Do you feel better, Claire…?” The young girl was stunned… Tears filling her eyes she jumped off the bed and ran to the woman to ‘land’ in her arms “Aunt Maria…! You’re alive !!” The woman hugged her back “Please Claire… I’m still hurt from this accident… But…” The woman crouched and looked at the young girl “You were badly hurt… What happened to you…?” Claire smiled…”I met an angel ! She healed me and also gave me some apples to eat !” Maria looked at the girl’s side… She was sure she saw her bleed badly from a deep wound… “I… don’t understand… How is that possible… I never heard of something like that…” Claire was still smiling “It was Erelle… She was so wonderful… If only she wasn’t so tiny…” Maria opened her eyes wide “Tiny…? But wasn’t she an angel…?” Claire giggled “Yes! A tiny angel…! She was about well… This size ? She could stand on my hand easily and she was looking exactly like us…” Maria was thinking “Hmmm by chance do you remember where she lives…? We hadn’t seen anyone when we found you on this beach.” Claire looked a bit sad “No… I just met her on the beach… But she’s living in a city… I guess she took a walk when I was sleeping… I wonder if she’s still searching for me…” Maria smiled and patted Claire’s head “You need to rest, Claire… Don’t think that much… And I brought you some food too” said Maria, taking a small platter filled with different kinds of food and placing it in front of Claire. There was a small steak, vegetables and a glass of fresh water… There was also a tiny black bottle… Claire knew those but it wasn’t the moment for this yet. Sitting on the bed with the platter, she took the fork and started to eat some vegetables… Maria smiled “I’ll be going to talk with the explorers, I’ll be back later, Claire, enjoy all of this and there’s more if you want.” Claire nodded as she saw her aunt going out of the room. Finishing her plate and drinking the cold water she went to the window and looked out… Holding the black bottle in her hand she was wondering if she would see Erelle again. Opening the tiny bottle and discovering her tiny ‘candy’ she dropped it in her hand… It was a tiny naga… Shivering from fear and hissing at the giant human girl… It was something natural for humans… Nagas were just ‘candies’ for them… The small naga was looking older than Claire and had red hair, her eyes of the same color… “Now that I think about it… You really look like Erelle, tiny one… Too bad that you’re just some candy and not so human like her …” Said Claire, pinching the tiny girl between two fingers on her hips… Claire opened her mouth and closed her lips on the tail of the naga who was now screaming… Claire sucked hard… Giggling as she was feeling more of the tiny naga entering her mouth… With a last cry, the small naga disappeared between Claire’s lips… Who tilted her head back and swallowed her easily… Not caring about the tiny screams going down her throat… Claire sighed deeply and rested her head on her arms… “I really miss my Erelle…”

Maria was in the ‘office’ since she was the commander of the expedition. This island wasn’t on any map they had… And she was wondering if they could find something on it… But that ‘angel’ story Claire told her about was strange… Maria knew Claire since she was born and she wasn’t the kind of child who would lie to her and… Maria thought that the girl died in the accident… She saw her bleeding and sinking into the sea, she remembered trying to find her in the storm but there was no trace of Claire as the ship she was on sank deep in the sea… Were there really angels living on the island…? It would be a great honor to bring one back to her queen… But they were… Tiny…? Maria was thinking of the nagas that humans discovered many years ago… If there was any way to breed them too, maybe … Someone knocked on the door. Maria put down her map “Come inside.” Another woman went inside, she was one of the explorers “I’ve brought you some medicine, Commander.” Maria smiled “Well thank you… It’s not every day that we sink our ship… But I won’t joke much about this… It’s one of the dangers we have to face as explorers…” The other woman nodded her head “I understand. But I’m a bit surprised… Claire managed to survive and she looks so healthy… Wasn’t she badly wounded as you said ?” Maria rested in her chair “Well yes… But she claims that she found a tiny ‘angel’ looking like a human but not even as tall as your thumb… That angel healed all of her wounds… I didn’t believe it at first… But Claire doesn’t have any scar on her body…!” The girl looked surprised “Hmmm wouldn’t that be a sign of bad fortune if we had to go back on this island, Commander ? I’m glad we discovered this island and that we got Claire back… But I wouldn’t be cursed by the those if I had to face one of those angels…” Maria looked at the sky by the window “But they’re not all like this… Claire told me that only some of them have ‘powers’ and there’s a full city of small people… Just like the nagas the Empire found some years ago…” The girl smiled “But nagas are just candy for us, of course small people just like us would be a great discovery for the Empire… We could have so much honor and gold… Ah!” The girl said too much, Maria answered “Don’t worry. That’s what we ‘search’ too when we’re exploring those seas… Treasures and glory for the Empire and for us too… If we could bring some back to the queen… Tell me… Do we still have some tiny naga cages …?” The girl smiled, understanding what was going on… “Yes, Commander. Should I regroup the explorers on the bridge?” Maria stood up “Yes. Take the ‘bags’ too… I’m pretty sure we’ll need them. Tell all the explorers to be ready for a night raid.” The girl gave a salute to Maria “Yes, Commander ! For the Empire!” Then went back in the crew quarters… Maria sat again on her chair, took some of the medicine the girl brought her and looked at the empire’s flag that was on the wall “Sorry, Claire… But I’ll be doing this for the Queen… It’s my duty.”

It was almost night, Maria went on the ship’s bridge and ordered everyone to get a bag… It would be a raid and they would have to bring back anything they’d find… Telling them about the ‘small ones’ and the ‘angel’ that saw Claire. Of course all of the explorers were surprised but Maria looked serious… It was something real, they were about to discover a new ‘human-like species’… Maria nodded “I know that we’re going to catch them… But are they human ? You don’t have to feel bad about this… We already did that many years ago when we discovered that naga land so just be careful not to kill them when you’ll be taking them… I don’t care for anything else aside this ‘angel’ they have… But I’ll bring back this angel down to earth and show her that our Empire is the only ruler here !” And then everyone got ready… Ready to ‘discover’ those small people… And bring them back to their homeland… Maria put her light armor on herself and picked up her dagger just in case they would meet some hostility…

Claire entered Maria’s room “Auntie…? I heard that you’re going to search for them…? Why would you do that… They never wanted to hurt me or you…” Maria put a knee on the ground in front of Claire “Claire… I’m sorry about that… I’m glad they helped you, but… You have to understand that they’re not human like you and I… They’re… ‘Creatures’… Just like the nagas… And my… OUR duty is to bring them back to the Empire” Maria put an armored hand on Claire’s shoulder “Do you want to come with us…? You wanted to be an explorer and it’s the best time to learn.” Claire pushed Maria’s hand away “I don’t want to see this… You’re going to break down their houses and ‘harvest’ them, right…? I can’t see this… And I can’t understand why you do this… You’ll have glory and gold from the queen? Is that your reason to ‘sell’ them…?” Maria bowed down her head “Claire… We have to do this… We’ve… Been so low on our savings… That expedition was the last one we planned and … We lost one of our two ships… I almost lost you, too ! Please try to understand…” Claire walked away to the door… “I wonder sometimes who the monster really is … If that’s us humans or every new people we meet…” Claire stopped… Remembered that tiny naga from before… She wasn’t really caring for her and just ate her without a feeling… “Yes… I’m the monster… I wish I would have left this world for good yesterday…” Then Claire closed the door and went into her room. Maria stood up… Stunned from what she just heard… But she had no choice… It was her last chance to serve the crown…” She started to walk slowly to the bridge… It was almost time…

Erelle was walking in the city, people were used to call her when she was in the streets, she wouldn’t refuse to help anyone and was happy to cure anything… She was passing by some workers, they were building a new house for some people who married some days ago, Erelle smiled as she saw a familiar face… “Hello Mira !” She said to the red haired girl who turned her head “Ah…! Erelle, hello !” Mira grabbed the rope aside her and climbed down to face Erelle “This house looks so lovely already… I wish that the people who’ll live here will be happy.” Said Erelle “I’m sure they will ! It’s my cousin who’ll live here and if he doesn’t like this house, I’ll go towards him and will tell him that I broke my arm for them !” Erelle was surprised then started to laugh “Hahaha ! But you’re feeling better now, don’t tell me that you’re going to break it again ~” Mira giggled too… Erelle put her hand against the wall “Don’t worry Mira, you’re doing great work with everyone. I can tell that they’ll live here for years.” Mira was looking at some worker “Hey…! What are you doing ?” Turning her head and ready to go back “Thank you for passing by, Erelle… If you want to come some other night to have dinner with us it will be an honor.” Erelle bowed “Thank you, Mira. I’ll be happy to spend another evening with you and your sister.” And bowing again, Erelle continued to walk around.

It was the end of the evening on the east beach. Basil was ‘training’ here. Like Aria he could use his ‘power’ to fly around with his will, he could also move some rocks way taller than him but he wasn’t really using his power to help people… He was also convinced that the ‘chosen’ were different from the people and had to rule them… Erelle didn’t agree with this but still the 5 of them were meeting to talk about various subjects. Suddenly Basil heard some noises… Looking at the other side of the beach he saw something impossible : Two giant ships landing on the sand with a dozen of giants inside… “Damn you, Erelle… If only you chose to kill that girl before…” Mumbling this, Basil went to hide near… Listening to what they were talking about. Maria was giving orders… They’ll search the whole island all the night to find the tiny city… And they’ll be sure to catch every one of those small people… Basil clenched his teeth as she heard Maria and saw the small dagger she had on her belt… Basil had an idea…

Maria didn’t immediately notice her dagger moving… It wasn’t supposed to ‘fly away’ on its own. Suddenly a girl from the explorers screamed “C… Commander …!” Maria turned around to see her own dagger flying and was close enough to her neck… “What… Is this… Sorcery…?” The small man went in the air far enough from Maria but close enough to yell “Go away, monsters ! Don’t make me kill your ‘officer’ !” Nobody was moving, scared but also seeing a small one for the first time. Maria was looking a bit surprised “And could I know who I am talking to…?” Basil was looking confident… He was currently ‘stronger’ than a giant… “I am Basil of the 5 chosen ! Now go back where you came from !!” But Basil wasn’t expecting Maria to be a skilled fighter… In a single move she crouched and grabbed her dagger… Looking at Basil with an angry stare “Wha…?” But Basil couldn’t say more when he got grabbed between two gloved fingers… “Let me go…! Monster …!” But Maria laughed… “So is that all you got … Basil of the 5…?” She approached her blade close to the small man’s head “Now. Tell me where you live… I wouldn’t want to cut you in half by mistake…” Basil tried to hit the giant fingers with his fists… He was the strongest among his people after all… But Maria looked down at him “Is that all you have…? Tell me where you’re hiding… Now.” Maria was tightening her grip… The small man was suffering but started to know that his powers were useless against them… “St… Stop this…! I… I’ll tell you…” His will to fight back was broken… He couldn’t do anything against a single giant so what could he ever do against twelve of them… “Very well… Show me the way.” Said Maria, still holding the tiny one tightly…

The night finally came and Erelle was tired… She spent some time with Nina in the evening and walked a bit with her. The young girl promised that she’ll never go near the cliff and that she won’t worry Aria again. After bringing Nina back, Erelle walked back to her house, still enjoying people talking around in the streets and suddenly Fyr’s words echoed in her mind again… She was wondering if they were really related to Claire… But some words were strange too and she couldn’t understand their meaning yet… Closing the door to her house, Erelle removed her shoes and sat on her bed… Claire was such a nice girl even if she was so tall… Would she met her ever again…? “It’s not a good idea…” Said Erelle while laying on her bed… But if the giants were friends with the small ones… It would be so great… Erelle was thinking of everything they could do together… And started to close her eyes slowly…

A big noise was heard… Erelle’s eyes opened wide… “What… Is this …?”. Outside near the giant trees appeared some strange shadows… The humans were facing the city… Erelle could hear many screams coming from outside… She heard a word specifically… “Giants…”. Maria smiled “Well… Looks like we found them at last… Thank you Basil…” The tiny man was shivering from fear “What… Are you going to do now…?” Maria put her head on the side and smiled “Oh…? Well I think that we’re going to catch all of you…” Basil yelled “Why would you do that ?! We’re not looking for war with you monsters…!” Maria giggled “Tell me, Basil… Who was the one that wanted to kill me…?” Basil shivered… It was his fault… But didn’t said anything else… “Well… You served us well… I won’t need you again.” And with a simple move she let the tiny man fall in her bag. “All right, explorers… Surround them and catch all of them. Don’t hesitate to search their houses too.” All of the explorers answered and then started to walk all around the small city…

Erelle couldn’t believe it… She was standing at her door looking at the giants from below… They were pulling off the roofs of all the houses easily and picked all the screaming people from them… She had a strong shiver “What’s happening… Who are they…?” The worst was that they were… Enjoying this…? Was it just a game for them to catch her people …? Erelle had a bad feeling… Not putting on her sandals she ran down the street… Thinking out loud… “Aria… Be safe, please …!” She was seeing more broken houses on her way… The giants just walking on the empty houses and crushing them easily under their boots… Erelle was crying but didn’t stop running…

“Erelle !” someone screamed… It was Rin “What’s happening …? Are they really monsters…?” Erelle looked again at the giants… “Rin… Search for Mira…! We have to hide everyone !” Rin gasped… There was no time to waste … The girls were running to the place where the adventurers were telling their tales. Rhis was here… With his power he created an opening in the ground with a large room… “Mira !” Yelled Rin… The girl ran towards them, Erelle talked “You two! Hide in the tunnel Rhis opened now…! ” the two girls were panicked but Erelle put her hands on their shoulders “Trust me. Rhis will take care of you… Go now !” The two girls entered the tunnel, Rhis noticed Erelle “And what about you Erelle, go inside too, please! The giants haven’t noticed this hideout yet!” Erelle was looking serious “I need to find Aria. Just help everyone and close this, Rhis. I’ll be Safe.” Rhis tried to speak but noticed Erelle’s eyes… She wouldn’t abandon her friends… “Be sure to come back, Erelle.” Said the young man before letting her go. Erelle started to run again… She was so close…! Maria was talking to the young officer “Well… We didn’t see that ‘angel’ yet… Erelle was her name…?” Erelle stopped and turned to hear this… There was only one giant who knew her name… Tears started to roll on her cheeks as she started to run again, remembering ‘this’ girl… “Claire…”

Soon enough Erelle was near Aria’s house… Her feet were hurting from the long run and she was breathing irregularly… She had reached her destination… But a giant was near, too… Erelle opened the door and dashed inside. Aria’s sisters were here… “Where is Aria, Nina ?” The tiny girl was crying… “She went outside… To help some people, and she asked us to stay here… But are they really giants…? Those monsters from the tales …?” Erelle put a knee on the ground and let the two young girls fall in her arms “Yes… But don’t worry… I’ll protect you until Aria comes back here… I saw a giant woman coming near, we should hide in your basement now before getting seen…” Nina nodded and with shivering legs she went to open the lock to the cave under the house. The 3 girls went inside and closed the wooden trap. Erelle sat on the ground and took the two girls in her arms… “Please be safe, Aria…”

Aria was flying fast in the city… Picking people up and bringing them to Rhis, she did her best not to be seen. She shivered at the sight of a giant woman getting closer to her house… “No…!” But as soon as she raised in the air, the woman put her glove on Aria’s house and pulled off the roof with a smile… And let it fall nearby “Hooo another empty one…”. Aria opened her eyes … Where were her sisters ? She couldn’t believe that they were already caught and started to fly to her house, the giant woman walking already away in search of new victims… Aria opened her eyes wide as she saw her house empty… Then noticed the trap door opening. The two young girls and Erelle exited the basement, they were looking around their destroyed house and were shivering from fear… Aria landed in front of them and her sisters went right in her arms… “Erelle… Thank you again… You saved them…” Erelle shook her head “You need to hide now… Just go inside Rhis’ tunnel and ask him to close it now. Aria opened her eyes “And what about you, Erelle ? I won’t leave you here !” Erelle bowed her head then looked back into Aria’s eyes “I will be all right. I’ll join you later but hurry up before Rhis closes the tunnel…” Aria looked into Erelle’s eyes… They were filled with anger… Anger from what was happening to all of them… And it wasn’t a good idea to disagree with her… Aria grabbed her sisters with her arms and called the winds… The 3 of them were now flying towards the tunnel Rhis opened in the ground… Aria’s sisters were crying… Refusing to leave Erelle behind… But it was her choice… And no one could change her mind now.

Soon the 3 girls disappeared from Erelle’s sight… She took a deep breath and looked at the ‘humans’… Her eyes started to glow… As her two wings appeared on her back… “Why are you doing this… We were living peacefully here… I can’t forgive… This…!” The glow from Erelle’s eyes started to expand all over her body… Her hair started to shine and her body started to change… Erelle was growing… The light surrounding her getting more intense… Some of the explorers saw the light and started to run away… Screaming about a curse… Maria was looking at this girl growing… Her two wings shining and a light crown appearing on Erelle’s forehead… Soon Erelle had the size of a human girl… Looking below, she was stepping on Aria’s house, crushed under her very own feet… Erelle raised her head… The same glow in her angry eyes… She was staring at the explorers. “So the ‘angel’ finally appeared…” Said Maria… Some explorers fell on their knees… Letting their bags fall on the ground and allowing the tiny people to escape… “You did enough for today… Let them go and leave this island immediately !” Yelled Erelle… She was looking really serious and about to ‘explode’… Maria was looking at the ‘angel’ “Ho… Well… I’m sorry but I can’t do that… The only one who gives me orders is my queen and even an angel like you won’t change this.” Erelle’s eyes glowed again “Stop this and leave now…! Who do you think you are to ‘harvest’ my own people like this ?!” Maria smiled… “We’re the ‘Empire’… We are the rulers of this world and your island and people belong to our queen now… I don’t care if you hate this… And if you want to fight too I’ll be glad to be your opponent …!” Then Maria suddenly started to dash towards Erelle… Crushing more tiny houses under her boots… Erelle was surprised and took a step back, she wasn’t expecting the human girl to attack her… And soon Maria’s glove reached Erelle’s cheek who was sent ‘flying’ away… “Aaah…” Moaned Erelle from pain and soon the glow started to disappear… Her body starting to shrink back down… As she landed on some tiny houses where she got back to her small size… Maria approached the girl and picked her up by the leg… Looking at the tiny body in front of her face “Already defeated…? You weren’t worthy of fighting me, ‘Erelle’…” Maria opened her purse and let the tiny girl fall inside… “To all the remaining troops, finish catching them and let’s go back to the ship!” The explorers nodded and finished catching the small people… Not thinking that some of them succeeded in hiding underground.

Maria closed the door to her ‘office’ and opened her purse. With two fingers she picked up Erelle, still unconscious and placed her in a metallic box, tall enough so Erelle wouldn’t escape from it. Taking a bottle and a glass, she poured some wine in it… Then sat at her desk… Looking at the tiny sleeping girl while drinking… Soon Erelle’s eyes opened slowly… She recoiled in pain… Then gasped… Maria’s face was above her “So you finally decided to wake up…?” Erelle stood up and looked at the giant girl… “why did you do that…! I never wanted to attack you !” Maria had a giggle… “You were scaring my men… It was the best thing to do so they could finish their job…” Erelle had her angry eyes again “And you’re planning to keep us as prisoners …?” Maria laughed… “You could say that, yes… But it will be up to our queen to decide… But knowing her… You might just become our slaves like the nagas…” Erelle was shivering… And saw Maria picking a tiny bottle… Pouring its ‘content’ in her hand. “Well… They’re special… Since they’re not as ‘human like’ as you we’ve decided to ‘produce’ them and they do their job… As our ‘candy’.”

Erelle’s eyes opened wide as she saw a snake girl as tall as her… Only her long tail was different… Maria was holding her in the air by the tip of her tail… The tiny girl was hissing… Trying to escape the two fingers’ grip before she was placed in front of Maria’s face… Erelle was shivering… Her legs too weak, she fell on her butt… And was forced to watch this horrible event happening… Maria watched Erelle “In the worst case you could finish like this… Still I don’t know what to think about that yet… It will be our Queen’s decision after all …” Erelle was still scared… This ‘creature’ looked so much like her… She wasn’t talking but screaming and hissing at the ‘human’… Maria talked again “Too bad we don’t teach them how to talk… It could be funnier if they begged for their tiny lives…” Erelle screamed “You’re really planning to breed us just like your animals…?! What kind of ‘ruler of the world’ would do that ?!” Maria looked a bit pissed off “Because we can.” Then the human girl raised the tiny naga girl above her head “Time to show her what could happen to her if she keeps yelling like that…” Said Maria before opening her mouth wide and let the naga’s face ‘land’ on the wet texture that was Maria’s tongue… The human girl wasn’t feeling anything but ‘pleasure’… And soon she raised her head and a horrible mix of sounds echoed in Erelle’s ears… The scream of the naga girl… And the sound of Maria’s throat as she swallowed her… Erelle saw with horror the tiny bulge containing the naga girl going down Maria’s neck and soon the tiny tail was sucked inside the woman’s lips and also disappeared… Erelle’s voice was shivering “You… You ate… Her…” The human girl had a laugh “Too bad they’re just candy, right ? We found them some years ago and the queen had the nice idea of breeding them… So everywhere in the Empire you can find some of them to enjoy…” Erelle’s lips where shivering too “It’s … Monstruous… Just because you’re taller would give you the right to do this…?” Maria put her hand just aside Erelle in the box “And because I’m taller and stronger than you, it also gives me the right to crush you under my glove too… Be careful about what you say, tiny ‘Erelle’…” The white haired girl looked at the ground… “Claire was different…” Maria giggled … “Claire is just a child… ! She doesn’t realize the meaning of this… And she will forget you as soon as the queen will reward us for our ‘discovery’…” Erelle put her fists on her knees… “So you’re just selling us… We’re just … ‘Money’ for you…” Maria nodded “Yes. It’s our job to find new ‘species’ and discover new lands… Even if your ‘island’ isn’t that big… and well… You’ll make a nice gift for our queen… I already have an idea for that…”

The door opened and a young girl came inside Maria’s office… “Auntie… What have you done…” It was Claire but she had empty eyes… “Claire… It’s not the time to-” but Claire interrupted her “It’s the perfect time !! What have you done !! I saw your men put some tiny people in naga cages…! Did you really destroy Erelle’s city…?” Erelle had her eyes opened wide “Claire…! Help me !” But as soon as Claire heard the tiny voice, Maria closed the box… Trapping Erelle inside… “Is that Erelle inside ?” Asked Claire “Yes it’s her… And she’s just a monster just like the nagas… She scared my explorers and I had to take her with me.” Claire’s cheeks went red as she started to yell “She was nice to me ! I almost died, don’t you remember !! She was the one who saved my life and now you’re calling her a ‘monster’?! I… Hate you !!” Claire’s words were like knives in Maria’s skin as the young girl ran away… Maria put the box on her desk… Not opening it she went to her window and looked by the window… “It’s my duty… If I had the choice back then… But it’s done…”

It was the middle of the night… Erelle was still trapped in the box but couldn’t use her ‘power’… She was too tired and scared to fully control it… She couldn’t escape this stupid prison… And soon she was too tired and tried to sleep on the cold ground… Maria didn’t want her tiny prisoner to die yet so she put some pieces of bread inside of the box before closing it again on the previous night. Soon the door opened in the darkness and a small shadow went inside of Maria’s office… That shadow knew what to do and opened the box… A large hand picked Erelle up, awakening her but didn’t let her the time to scream… The shadow then walked away after closing the box… Erelle was surrounded by giant fingers all around of her… She couldn’t escape and was trying to guess what would happen to her now… When the hand finally opened again Erelle was sitting on it… And looking above her she saw a girl’s face… She was smiling but her eyes were showing a deep sadness… “Are you all right, Erelle…?” Erelle had a shiver as she saw Claire… And tears started to form in her eyes “Claire…” The human girl tried to smile “Don’t worry, Erelle… I’m going to help you… I disagree with my aunt and I’ll do my best to help your people.” Erelle was shivering “But… How…” Claire put her hand in front of her face “Don’t worry. I know what to do.” And with this, Claire started to walk towards the storage room of the ship. Closing the door behind her Claire saw something horrible for her and for Erelle … Disposed in the room were many cages placed in piles and containing many tiny people in them… Some were crying, some other screaming and even some that were trying to break the ‘prison’ without success. Some human weapons and chains for the human prisoners were also stashed around this room. Claire made Erelle sat on her shoulder with a smile “Let’s get started, shall we ?” And with both of her hands she took a cage and placed it on the ground. Some of the people inside were screaming but calmed down as they saw Erelle pairing with the human girl. Soon Claire opened the cage and broke the tiny door so the explorers wouldn’t use it again… “We’re in the middle of the sea… You should all hide inside the ship !” Said Claire to the small ones, showing an old plank where the small people could hide behind, deep inside of the ship’s hull. Erelle had a tiny cry of joy… There was still hope for her people… Claire patted the tiny girl’s head with a finger… “Time to break another one!” And grabbing another cage she broke again the tiny door, letting the small people hide away from the humans… Claire picked a third cage and was about to open it when she heard the door behind her open… “I knew it was you, Claire.” Said a woman’s voice…

Maria was standing in front of Claire… The armored woman way taller than the young girl… With a fast move she grabbed the tiny girl on Claire’s shoulders… Making her scream from the finger’s pressure… Maria had a severe look on her face “Aunt Maria…! You’re hurting her !!” Screamed Claire but Maria just put the tiny Erelle inside her purse again then grabbed Claire’s shoulders “I don’t care… She’s just an animal… Just a tiny monster that doesn’t deserve your kindness.” And with a strong move, Maria made Claire sit on a prisoner’s chair and locked Claire’s wrists on it… Claire was crying “What are you doing ?! Please auntie… Don’t hurt me !” But Maria had an empty smile… “I won’t hurt you, Claire… I’ll teach you something…” Maria took a full cage and placed it near the chair… Finally opening the door she picked up a tiny woman… She was screaming from fear… Begging for help… “Well Claire… It’s late already… You skipped dinner to come here, right…? I guess you deserve to be punished… Don’t you agree…?” Claire was shivering… Still tied to the chair she saw the tiny woman Maria was holding carelessly between her fingers… Maria approached her hand with the tiny woman between her fingers and placed it in front of Claire’s face… “Eat her.” Claire’s eyes opened wide… “N… No… They’re… Humans… Don’t make me do that…!” But Maria had an angry look, grabbed the girl’s cheek with her other hand “Don’t disobey, Claire …! And listen to me, they’re not human like us…” And pressing harder on Claire’s cheek… Maria made her open her mouth “Good girl…” Before placing the tiny screaming woman inside of Claire’s mouth… She repeated herself “Eat her… Now.” Claire shook her head… She was blushing from a strange feeling… The tiny woman was really inside of her mouth…! So full of life and trying to escape! But Maria had her hand in front of Claire’s lips so she couldn’t spit the tiny one outside… Claire’s eyes were filling with tears… She didn’t want to do this but soon an amazing feeling took over her… She had the tiny woman’s life at her mercy… Just like the nagas she loved so much… She couldn’t deny it anymore…

“Let me out!!” Erelle was trapped in the bag… And was yelling at Maria… But the human girl wasn’t listening… More focused on the ‘lesson’ she was giving to Claire… And soon another ‘horrible’ noise echoed in Erelle’s ears… The same as before when she was watching Maria mocking her… The human woman put her hands on Claire’s head… And soon that ‘gulping sound’ was heard … When Maria forced Claire to swallow the tiny girl… Claire was shivering… “No… No…! What have I… Done…” She was feeling a tiny body going deep inside of her body… But it was different from a naga… And had a strange mix of feelings… She was fearing what was happening but also… Was enjoying it… It was the first time ever a human ate a tiny one… And moreover against the young human girl’s will… Erelle fell on her back… She couldn’t believe what happened… Maria had a smile… She wasn’t done yet.

“Did you enjoy it, Claire…? Is it different from what we’re used to…?” Claire bowed her head down… She was feeling the tiny one fighting for her life within her body… Having a wave of pleasure each time the small woman hit the stomach’s walls with her fists… “Ahh aaaahhh…” Claire couldn’t talk… Her whole body shivering… Maria had a strange reaction… She went against Claire’s body and put her arms around her… “Sorry Claire… But I’m doing this for you… I don’t want you to feel sad… I just want to show you what those tiny ones are for…” But soon a tiny scream surprised Maria… “What have you done … Giant monster …! You just ate my sister alive…!!” It was a young tiny girl… She was crying and was probably Claire ‘meal’s’ sister … Maria had a naughty smile… And opening the cage she picked up the girl between two fingers… “No…! No!!!” Was screaming the young small girl… Erelle was also screaming “Stop this…! Claire, don’t listen to your aunt… !! She’s lying to you !!” But Maria didn’t stop and placed the tiny screaming girl in front of Claire’s face… “Claire… You know what to do, right…?” The young human girl bowed her head, Maria talked again “Good girl… It’s better not to tear families apart after all …” And putting a finger under Claire’s chin, raising her head a bit, the young human girl’s lips shivered… Before opening wide… Maria had a giggle and dropped the small girl inside the waiting maw… Claire closed her lips as the small girl landed on her tongue… She was still shivering… Not from fear anymore… She was enjoying this… The tiny girl trying to open the giant lips… The feeling she had when Claire was pressing her small victim against her cheek… Before starting to raise her tongue… Ready to send her to her sister… Maria picked up Erelle from the small purse and forced her to watch this… “Claire… I won’t force you this time… You know what to do.” Erelle was shivering, too… Fearing what was happening again … “No…! Nooooo !!!” Screamed the small girl inside Claire’s mouth… She was now under Claire’s uvula… Erelle screamed “Claire…! Listen to me, please…!! Don’t do-” but before she could finish, Claire swallowed the small girl… Her mind and will to fight this strange ‘pleasure’ shattering … She was really enjoying this… Erelle was horrified to see the tiny shape going down Claire’s neck… “So they’re that good…?” Said Maria while opening the locks that were on Claire’s wrists… The young human was still shivering… Maria had an idea… She started to move Erelle in front of Claire’s face… The young human girl had empty eyes… She was looking at the tiny Erelle in front of her… “You… You can’t be… Serious…!!” Yelled Erelle when she was moved closer… She was trying to escape the grip of Maria’s fingers… But soon her eyes opened wide in horror… Right in front of her… Claire was opening her mouth… Wanting more… “Claire…! You’re really…?” The human girl’s eyes were still empty… As if life itself left them… “Sorry Erelle… But I can’t resist… It was so… Good…” And again Claire waited for Maria to drop the tiny girl inside her waiting mouth…

“That will be enough, Claire.” Said Maria while removing Erelle in front of Claire’s face and putting the tiny girl back in her purse. Claire frowned… She was expecting to ‘save’ her tiny angel… In the most horrible way she could… Maria put a hand on Claire’s head “I’m sorry again, Claire… But you needed to understand what they are… As you saw their tiny lives are so fragile that it’s better for us to decide what to do with them…” Then Maria lifted Claire easily in her arms and carried her away from this room… The young human was blushing… And still shivering from an unbelievable pleasure… “Aaahh…” Maria was looking at Claire “Are you feeling all right, Claire…? Sorry I was a bit aggressive just now…” The girl was smiling… “I’m… all right… I can feel them moving inside of me… But it’s way more amazing than the nagas… Aaahhh…” Maria smiled… “Good girl.” While closing the room’s door and heading towards her office, still holding Claire in her arms…

Erelle was crying… She lost so much today… Two of her own people disappeared in front of her… And she also lost someone else… The human girl that she saved before… Erelle had a strong shiver… Remembering Claire about to eat her too… Her mind was broken and Erelle couldn’t do anything to bring her back… She buried her face in her hands… Feeling that her kind were just like… Some tiny candies for the humans… “I can’t believe this…” Said Erelle while hitting the leather wall with her fist… Erelle would now be alone trying to escape… Maria finally came inside her office and closed the door… She put Claire in her bed and put a cover over the girl… Removing her purse from her belt she put it on her desk and sat nearby… Maria was looking at Claire falling asleep… Having a cute tiny burp as she was ‘finishing her meal’… Maria was feeling a bit sad.. If only Claire just accepted to understand her ‘humanity’ earlier… But now it was different… Maria took her box and placed some bread in it… She then opened her purse without looking inside, not wanting to face Erelle again, and placed it in the box before closing it… Finally placing her box on a shelf… “We’ll be back soon…” As Maria looked at her maps, the Empire wasn’t so far anymore…

It was early in the morning, the massive ship entered a giant port… It was the capital of the Empire and Maria was on the bridge… Looking at the people who welcomed them back but even if they were really back in their city, Maria wanted to ‘hide’ their discovery… Going down in the crew quarters she ordered them to put all of the small cages in a big chest and also make some tiny holes so the small people could breathe. Going back in her room, Maria opened her box and saw Erelle… The tiny girl wasn’t looking alive anymore… She was sitting near the bread and was eating a tiny crumb… Her empty eyes turned with her head when she saw the ‘light’ and looked at Maria… “It’s the big day for you, Erelle… You’re going to meet our queen today.” Erelle wanted to speak… But bowed her head down… She had lost all will to fight back… Maria put her hand in the box and grabbed the small girl between two fingers… Then put her in front of her face… “Don’t be sad, Erelle… It’s a glorious day for both of us ! I’m sure our queen will love you.” Erelle didn’t answer… Then Maria put her in her purse “That’s the last time you’ll be in there…” Closing the tiny leather bag, Maria went on the bridge. All the crew and Claire were here “Good. We finally made it. Be proud of yourselves, all of you. Today is our day, the day where we’ll enter the glorious Empire’s history !” All of them were cheering Maria, Claire was still looking a bit defensive. Maria put a hand on her head and crouched in front of her “Claire… I want you to do something, could you come with me in the city ?” The young girl nodded and followed her aunt “We’ll join you in front of the castle, put on your best uniforms and carry the chest to the castle’s gates, I have to do something with Claire first.” All the explorers bowed then went back in their quarters to change themselves. Maria, followed by Claire, went down a small plank to exit the ship. A small man was in front and bowed as the two girls approached “Commander Maria, here’s a horse for you. We’re glad to see you again.” Maria smiled “Thank you, today will be an incredible day for the Empire, tell the queen that we’ll be visiting her soon.” The man bowed again and went back in the streets. Maria climbed on the horse, offering a hand to Claire “Let’s go.” The young girl grabbed her aunt’s hand and climbed behind her… She wrapped her arms around Maria’s hips for safety. “Where are we going…?” Asked Claire, Maria answered “We’ll be getting new clothes and I have something to ask of the blacksmith too, it won’t take much time.” And soon the horse went into the harbor’s streets.

Maria stopped at the blacksmith’s first. She was drawing something on a paper sheet… The blacksmith and his apprentices were looking at the drawing and also talked about it… It would be a present for the queen so every detail would have to be perfect. It would be a Silver pendant attached to a silver chain. Maria wanted it to have some jewels all around it and a small mechanism in the center. Some apprentices were wondering its purpose but Maria whispered its secret in the blacksmith’s ear… The man was hesitating… But he knew Maria well and also knew that she might have really found something… Furthermore it would be a gift for the queen herself ! “I understand, Commander. We’ll be going to work on it with my apprentices and it will be ready in two hours.” Maria smiled “I know you can do it, you’re the best blacksmith of the Empire. Could you put it in a small chest when it will be done ?” The man smiled too “Of course! Nothing is too much for our queen !” And turning back he started to give orders to all of his men. Claire was listening to the whole story and was wondering what it was all about… Maria crouched in front of her “It’s a gift for our queen and Claire… You’ll be the one that will deliver it.” Claire’s cheeks went bright red… She would be really important today and she would also meet the queen ! Maria climbed back on her horse and lifted Claire again to sit her behind her. After some minutes they were in front of another shop… The people all around looked noble and richer than the people living on the harbor. Maria put a foot on the ground and helped Claire down. Claire opened her eyes wide open as she saw the beautiful shop in front of her… The soft scent tickling her nose… Maria smiled “Choose the dress you want, Claire !” Claire looked up to her aunt’s face and looked again to the gorgeous silk floating… Both girls went inside and Claire’s eyes stopped on something… A deep white dress with some black parts… The dress was already beautiful for Claire and she was wondering how she would look like with the dress on her … Soon she could feel two hands on her shoulders and Maria’s voice “It’s a beautiful one… And I think it will be the perfect one for you, Claire.” Claire had a giggle… She wasn’t expecting to wear such a beautiful dress one day… Maria went to talk with the vendor before both of them came back to Claire “You can have it now, young miss… Could you follow me to the room behind the shop to try it on ? Claire nodded as she went in the room. Meanwhile Maria was looking at her purse… She couldn’t feel Erelle for some time… The small girl was still there… Laying on the side and sobbing… Erelle didn’t look back at Maria and stayed like that… Maria closed her purse again and looked at the crowded street in front of the shop… Soon all of them… All of the known world of the Empire would know about her story… Her wonderful ‘discovery’… And maybe she could finally quit her job and enjoy a nice retirement… She wasn’t that old too but with the gold the queen would give her it would be enough to spend the rest of her life without risking her life again on the sea…

Soon Claire came back, dressed in her cute dress, Maria smiled “It really fits you, Claire! The queen will love it, too !” The young girl was blushing and Maria put a knee on the ground in front of her “It will be all right, Claire, we’ll all be there when you’ll bring her the gift.” Claire nodded and soon Maria sat her on her horse again. After giving some gold coins to the vendor, Maria went on her horse too and they were going back to the harbor. The explorers weren’t around the ship and were probably heading towards the castle at the moment. The blacksmith was closing the small chest containing the pendant when Maria stepped back in the small shop. “Commander, it’s ready. Just like you asked.” Maria nodded and opened the chest… The small silver pendant was here… The shape, the gems on it, everything was perfect… The tiny mechanism was also in the middle of it “Just turn the small screw behind and it will open, Commander.” Said the man as he demonstrated it… There was some space under the mechanism as requested, big enough to fit a small naga or… Something else. Maria put a hand on her belt and picked up her purse “Thank you, it’s exactly what I needed, the queen will really love it… But could you leave me alone for a minute, please ?” Asked the woman, the blacksmith smiled and bowed “Of course, Commander, take the time you need.” He then went to the back room, probably to tell his men about their great work. Maria opened her purse and looked inside “It’s your turn, Erelle. But don’t be sad like this… You’ll meet our queen soon enough.” Erelle wasn’t talking and let out a tiny squeak when Maria picked her up with her fingers… Erelle was looking ‘broken’… She was at the complete mercy of the human woman… And couldn’t do anything to escape… Her tiny eyes opened wide when Maria moved her closer to the pendant “What is… Aaaaahh!!” Erelle screamed when the lock of the pendant closed on her body… “No…” Cried the small girl… Trying to remove the giant ring holding her in the pendant… Maria smiled and put back the pendant in the chest …”Perfect… All the ‘gems’ are on it now…” Erelle screamed again… But she couldn’t do anything… Soon the chest closed and trapped her in the darkness again…

Erelle was crying… She was so far from her island… She was thinking about all the people that were still on it… Aria and her sisters… Rhis… Rin and her sister Mira… All the people she met… Were they safe now ? Erelle was ‘escaping’ this ‘prison’ by thinking about her old life… Those beautiful days in their city… And everything she wouldn’t see again… She tried in vain to move the silver ring she was trapped in… Nothing moved. Erelle rested her head on the cold pendant… Was her life going to end like this…? As the queen’s pendant forever…? Erelle closed her eyes… Wanted to sleep… And get out from this situation somehow… Soon Maria and Claire were in front of the castle…

The guards gave their salute to Maria as she approached. “Commander Maria. Your men are waiting in the inner court.” Maria bowed and walked while holding Claire’s left hand and carrying the tiny chest in her other arm. “It’s your turn soon, Claire. I want you to give this gift to the queen when we’ll meet her. Please be really respectful with her and smile, she’ll be even happier ” Claire nodded “I understand.” Maria smiled to the young girl “You’ll be perfect, Claire, you don’t have to worry about anything.” And soon both of them reached the place where the explorers were waiting… The queen would call them soon… Maria gave the chest to Claire and faced her men “Explorers… This day is the most important in our lives. Today you’ll enter the Empire’s glorious history, you can be proud of this. And I’m also really proud of all of you… This discovery will be a part of us forever… I’m really glad to have all of you here… And to have been your commander. Now… Be proud, explorers… It’s our time !” A guard came near the explorers and approached Maria “Commander Maria, the queen is waiting you.” Taking a long breath, Maria gave orders to her men and they all started to walk towards the throne room…

The queen Andrea was only 22 years old, she had inherited the crown when her mother passed away from a disease and had ruled over the empire for 7 years now. She was sitting in her throne when she saw the explorers coming in “Commander Maria… It’s been a long time since I last saw you… I’m glad you returned safely from your exploration… I heard strange rumors about something incredible that you found… Would you tell me the details about that, please ?” The queen was smiling… She was always looking happy but also knew when she had to be really serious. Maria approached a bit and put a knee on the ground. Maria started to tell the full story… How they wandered on the sea, trying to go where no map could take them… The terrible storm and the loss of the other ship, then she finally reached the part of Claire’s story, the meeting with the small ‘angel’… And the people they caught ‘for the empire’… The queen had her eyes opened and listened carefully to every detail… “And you have some of those ‘people’ here ?” Maria bowed her head and gave a sign to the explorers carrying the big chest. Soon it was opened… The queen let a tiny scream out as she saw them… All the cages containing the small people… So much different from the nagas the humans knew… “I can’t believe it… They’re looking so much like us…” Said the queen, amazed. Maria stood up “And there’s more, your majesty. Claire, if you please ?” The young girl walked towards the queen… Her legs shivering a bit and bowed towards Andrea… Presenting her the small chest, Maria spoke again “Here’s their ‘leader’… It’s the small angel Erelle I told you about.” Claire opened the chest and discovered the pendant at the same time as Andrea… Claire was feeling really sad for the girl… But it was Erelle’s destiny… The queen smiled “Look at this, all of you… A young angel named Claire giving me another small angel… I thank you, Claire. You’re really a cute girl.” Claire bowed her head again as the queen picked up the pendant… Looking at Erelle… The small girl wasn’t moving… Just looking at her new ‘owner’… The queen smiled again “What a cute tiny girl you are, Erelle… I’ll take care of you…” Then Andrea looked at her chancellor “Cover all of them with gold ! This is a really great discovery for the Empire and they deserve that.” Maria bowed again as all of the explorers put a knee on the ground “Thank you, Your Majesty.”

The explorers soon left the room… All of them carrying a bag full of gold coins… Maria and Claire were given two bags each and a special status at the queen’s court so they could live in the palace too. Andrea was still in the silent room, sitting on her throne. She had her pendant in her hand and was looking closely at Erelle… With two fingers she carefully took Erelle’s arm and was still amazed… “You’re really just like us… You probably know of the nagas now… But you look a lot more ‘human’ than them…” Erelle let the queen play with her tiny body… Her eyes were still looking tired… Tired from crying and from the despair she felt… “Your hair is strange, Erelle… I never saw a deep white like yours… Is that why you can use ‘magic’ too ?” Asked the queen, but Erelle wasn’t answering… Andrea frowned “Not really the talkative type I see… But well you’re my pendant now… Maybe you just want to live like this after all… Well it’s fine by me…” Said Andrea before opening the chain and putting the pendant around her neck… Placing it between her two ‘majestic’ breasts…

The queen was in her park behind the castle, there was a big party in honor of the explorers and all of them were here. Andrea took some time before to wear another dress, the servants were all looking at the new ‘pendant’ while the queen was putting on her new dress… Erelle was the center of attention but she wasn’t moving or saying anything… Now in the park, Andrea continued to acclaim the explorers’ discovery . All of them were here even Maria and Claire but they weren’t used to such a fest… It would also probably look more like a real ‘party’ if it wasn’t for the ‘show’ in the center of the park… The cages were displayed here… All of them still containing all of the small ones… All the members of the queen’s court were looking at them… Even a younger cousin of the queen, a blonde girl wearing the latest ‘princess fashion’ came near the cage and teased the small ones… “Ahhh I can’t wait to have all of you inside my cute stomach, tiny ones…~” Andrea had a giggle… Indeed she was also thinking about creating some ‘farms’ where the small ones would be bred and sent throughout all of the Empire… For different purposes… Erelle was still between two ‘mountains of flesh’… The silver pendant still in the middle of the queen’s chest… The small girl raised her head to see this… Her own people displayed for the enjoyment of the ‘humans’… Erelle let a tear roll on her cheek… But no human cared about this… The queen was now walking and greeting all of her guests… Claire was also here. The young girl smiled to the queen before noticing Erelle between her breasts… Andrea had many dresses to wear and this one was ‘displaying’ her royal chest and the small pendant hanging from her neck… Claire saw the tiny girl… But she couldn’t face her anymore… Bowing in respect, Claire turned back and went back to the quarters where she was now living with Maria and her family… Andrea was really enjoying the party… It was something not really usual to do in the castle but now she had new ‘toys’ to play with… The queen took her pendant and looked at Erelle. “Enjoying this, little Erelle? Oh, right… I forgot that you don’t speak… After all, it’s your people that are making all of this possible, but well… You belong to the Empire now, whether you want it or not.” Andrea giggled “But you know what? You’ll always be my personal toy. I’ll take care of you and you’ll be my white gem for the end of your tiny life… Or until I get bored of you, especially if you refuse to talk… Come on, Erelle… Is it so hard to beg for your people’s safety…?” Erelle had tired eyes… “You probably wouldn’t listen to me anyway…” Andrea’s eyes opened wide “Oooh so you talk ! Your voice is sooo ‘musical’… I would like to listen to you some more… ” but Erelle closed her eyes again. The queen frowned “Remember that I have your life in my very hands… I could crush you easily under my thumb, little Erelle…” Erelle had her eyes closed “Do what you want… After all, I’m just your ‘toy’… And I’ll be free from this stupid ‘joke’…” Andrea frowned again and put the pendant back on her neck… “You’re not really funny but well… You’ll get used to your new ‘situation’…” Erelle didn’t move again… She couldn’t do anything… But she wished so much that the queen would get bored of her and would just end her suffering…

It was now nighttime. The party ended about 2 hours ago and the queen was in her room… She started to remove her dress before putting on a night dress, ready to rest from this wonderful day… But instead of getting into her bed, she sat on it and removed her pendant. Andrea put the silver jewel in front of her and, in a soft move, put her hand behind it… *click*… The lock opened and Erelle saw the ring surrounding her opening… She was still laying on the silver casing then looked aside her… She could move freely… Slowly standing up, Erelle looked at this giant woman sitting in front of her, Andrea was looking down… Ready to catch the small girl if she tried to run away “All right, Erelle… Can we talk now ?” Erelle was shivering… She was so small “What… What do you want …?” Andrea picked the girl up with two fingers and sat her in her hand “I want to know you… I ‘discovered’ your people today but I want to know more… Claire and Maria told me that you can use magic…? Usually I wouldn’t believe such a silly idea but after seeing you, I could believe anything…” Erelle stayed silent… Looking at the woman’s face deeply “I know that you don’t want to talk. I won’t torture you… I just want to know…” Erelle’s eyes filled with anger again “I was living peacefully… I never wanted to cause any trouble for anyone… When I saved Claire, I thought she was different from the ‘monsters’ we heard about in our explorers’ tales… But in the end… Maria made her eat two of my people in front of my very eyes… And she just… Enjoyed it ! Is that all we’ll be in your ‘Empire’ ?! Food and toys for the humans ? I would rather die now than see this…” Andrea smiled “So you know how to talk after all … But I, the Queen, will decide when you’ll leave this world… And it won’t be today…maybe…” Andrea approached her mouth closer to Erelle… She looked at those two giant red pillows opening slightly “Even if you look so… Delicious, little Erelle… You look even more appetizing than those nagas… I wonder if I would just…-” but a knock on the door snapped the queen out of that train of thought “Who is this ?” A shy voice came from behind the door “It’s Lisa, Your Majesty… You asked me to visit you some days ago… But if you don’t want to, since our plans have changed, it will be fine too…” Andrea had a giggle… She picked Erelle up, placed her back in the pendant and locked it again, the small girl didn’t try to resist… She wouldn’t try anything to escape… “Come in, Lisa~” said the queen with a joyous voice… The door opened up and a shy maid came inside. The girl had her deep black hair resting onto her shoulders and her uniform was just like the other maids… A black dress and a cute white hairband in her hair. Her cheeks were bright red and she looked a bit shy… Her greens eyes were looking away… “Come closer, Lisa, please…~” said Andrea while looking at the maid intensely… The two women had known each other for many years already… Lisa was the same age as Andrea and was playing with the princess all the times when they were young. The years passed and their ‘relation’ grew stronger… She had a ‘special status’ in the castle and it was well known that she was in fact… Andrea’s lover. Lisa had a shy smile “Is that one of those small people, Your Majesty?” Andrea smiled and invited the girl to sit beside her on the bed “No titles when we’re alone Lisa, please… And yes she’s one of them… Really amazing isn’t it ? They’re just like us… But also so small…” Lisa looked closer at the pendant… Erelle was looking at this new human girl too. Lisa’s finger approached, hesitating a bit before touching Erelle’s tiny hand… “Ahhh her skin is really… Soft and she’s so cute with this white hair…” Andrea smiled “She’s called an ‘angel’ for this, she can even use magic… But for some reason she refuses to show me…” Lisa smiled “I guess she’ll get used to you… Andrea.” The queen smiled… She loved when her lover was calling her by her name and without her title… She put the small pendant back around her neck and made the maid stand up in the center of the room…

Andrea stood up too and faced Lisa… Her hand going into her black hair as she was still ‘diving’ in the deep green of her eyes… Soon her finger traced its way on Lisa’s face, stopped on her lips… Before Andrea had a small giggle “I still can’t believe how beautiful you are…” Lisa had a shiver… She loved Andrea from the bottom of her heart… Not because she was now the queen, she loved her for being Andrea… The queen’s hand stopped on the maid’s shoulders… And in a gentle move started to remove the girl’s uniform… Lisa was smiling too… Her hands shivering a bit, she approached them towards the queen and started to remove the queen’s night dress too… Andrea kissed the top of Lisa’s cute chest before resuming her undressing… All the moves were perfect… The two women enjoying this deep shared feeling of love… And soon enough… Both of them were standing naked in front of each other… Erelle was still between Andrea’s breasts, trapped in the pendant… But could guess what would happen next as she saw Lisa in front of her getting undressed… Andrea smiled… “All right, Lisa… You’re my Queen tonight…” Opening her arms… She was ready for anything Lisa had in mind…

Lisa smiled… Her smile was the most sincere Andrea ever saw… Since their youth, both of the girls’ bond grew stronger and now they knew that this feeling wouldn’t be broken easily… Lisa’s finger went on Andrea’s lips… It was their ‘sign’ for both of them to show how much they loved each other… Approaching Andrea, Lisa’s face went closer towards Andrea… And soon her lips reached the queen’s… Wrapping one of her arms around Andrea’s hips… The other hand tracing its way from Andrea’s gorgeous chest to her hips… Going down she finally reached the queen’s ‘special place’ between her legs… Andrea had a soft moan… Lisa never broke that kiss… She laid Andrea on her bed and ‘sat’ on her… Putting a leg on each side of Andrea’s body… Lisa’s own privates were almost on the queen’s… Soon, Lisa laid on Andrea’s body… Her lips wanting more of the woman she loved… Erelle was trapped… When she saw Lisa’s breasts coming down and pressing against Andrea’s, she could feel incredible pressure on her tiny body… She was coughing from the weight of Lisa’s body but soon Andrea moved a bit on the side… Erelle’s eyes opened wide… She already saw this… She knew what would happen next when she saw a tiny black bottle in Andrea’s hand.

The tiny naga screamed as she landed on the queen’s hand from the small bottle… She tried to escape as the enormous fingers closed in on her, but Andrea was faster… And stronger… The queen’s other hand went on Lisa’s chin… Putting two fingers on the maid’s lips… “Please, Lisa…” The girl nodded and understood… Lisa opened her mouth wide… While Andrea lowered the tiny naga inside it…. Trying to escape the fingers’ strong grip, screaming in horror… Soon enough, Lisa’s lips closed on Andrea’s fingers… Sucking on them gently before letting them out… Without the small naga… Erelle had a shiver… Looking at those two giantesses enjoying eating someone smaller… A tear rolled on Erelle’s cheek… She could understand what the small naga was feeling… But couldn’t do anything for her… Erelle was feeling the pressure of Lisa’s breasts against Andrea’s again… Lisa was about to kiss the queen one more time… Andrea’s tongue pierced its way between Lisa’s lips… Visiting her mouth and… Feeling the helpless prey inside… The girls were now sharing a strong kiss… The tiny naga trapped between two giant tongues caressing each other… Erelle was hearing Andrea’s heart thumping right behind her… And was hardly breathing between the 4 giant breasts pressed against her… Lisa’s hand made its way to Andrea’s crotch again…and found her cute dripping slit between her thighs… Then started to finger her softly… Making her moan loudly… Andrea’s eyes closed… Letting a tear of happiness roll on her cheek… She was almost done for… But also enjoying being at Lisa’s mercy… The maid was still ‘at work’… Making her queen feel so good… With a strong move of her finger she ‘crawled’ deeper inside Andrea’s vagina… Who let out a loud moan as she had a strong shiver… And came on her lover’s hand… Letting her juices pour out of her sex as Lisa closed her eyes, happy to feel so good with her lover… Lisa’s tongue moved inside Andrea’s mouth… The queen’s pleasure was so high… She was ready to feel even more from Lisa… Also raising her tongue… She made the tiny crying naga slip towards her throat… And with a last moan from the two giantesses… Swallowed her down…

Erelle screamed as she heard this horrible sound… The combination of the queen swallowing her helpless prey and the sight of the bulge going down Andrea’s throat… Passing right aside Erelle’s pendant… The white haired girl could see the tiny silhouette passing by, trying to escape but just going deeper… Erelle closed her eyes as she heard the naga’s screams… Soon getting muffled by the queen’s body… “Ahh aaaahhhh!!” Erelle screamed, again… It was too much for her ! Her eyes were shivering… Her body was shaking too… She couldn’t stand it anymore… Her tired body shivered… Tears rolling on her small cheeks as Erelle passed out… Wanting all of this to stop…

“Is she dead ?” Asked a first voice that was Lisa’s… “She’s breathing… Maybe she’s not used to this yet…” Said another voice… Erelle slowly opened her eyes… She was laying on a tiny pillow… She gasped at the realization that she was naked… Her tiny torn dress laying aside “What… Why…? Why have you done that…! She was a living being ! I don’t know much about them but… She was screaming and you just ate her like this !!” Andrea and Lisa were laying on the bed next to each other… Looking at the small girl… Erelle stood up but Andrea pushed her tiny body with a finger and made her fall on her back again “She was a naga, Erelle… They’re our candy… Our… Food… Why should I feel bad about this…?” Erelle had anger in her eyes “What are you talking about again…?! She was ALIVE…! You… KILLED HER !! And you talk about her like your food…?! Don’t you understand why I hate the humans now…?” Lisa put her head on the side… “She’s… boring… I wanted to see her closely but… She’s not as nice as she looks…” Andrea nodded “Yes… She’s not a good girl…” Lisa grabbed the tiny girl that let out a scream between her fingers and placed her in front of Andrea’s mouth… “She’s not respecting my queen, too… Should I feed her to you, Andrea…? To show her how food should behave…?” Andrea was giggling… “I have plenty of them left… But since I’m planning to breed them, well… I guess we could enjoy her together, Lisa…” Erelle had a shiver when she saw Andrea talking… That mouth was big enough to contain many tiny people… And would swallow them easily, too …! Lisa laid Erelle on the pendant again and locked her… Both of the giant women looked at each other before looking at Erelle again… The small white haired girl was shivering again… Now fearing for her own life…

Erelle knew something was going to happen… “What are you doing? Stop… You’re scaring me…” But Andrea didn’t listen… “All right, Lisa… Why don’t we try something new this time…” Before sitting on the bed… Putting away her pendant from her neck and, after spreading her legs, placing it against her sex… Erelle’s eyes opened wide in horror at the queen’s ‘lower lips’ now right in front of her… Already feeling Andrea’s body’s warmth… Lisa smiled… Sitting on the bed too, she lifted one of her lover’s legs and slipped her own leg under it… Resting on her arms… Lisa approached… And soon Erelle understood what was happening to her… As she was now squeezed between two women’s sexes…

“Nnhhh aaahhh…!” Moaned the queen… Feeling her lover’s body against her but this tiny girl, too, was so amazing… Andrea opened her mouth wide as she tilted her head back “Aaahhh….! Lisa….!” The maid was also moaning… She was now feeling the tiny body against her sex too… Both lovers experiencing something new together… Erelle was shivering… The giant women were now pressing harder… Erelle’s body still trapped between the girls… She wanted to scream but it was already hard enough for her to breathe… Andrea moaned again… Her sex was now leaking some juices out… Dripping right on Erelle’s body… The small girl was coughing… The very warm skin assaulting her from both sides and the girls’ juices slobbered all over her face was too much to endure… Erelle’s arm tried to push away the skin rubbing against her… But it wasn’t effective at all… And it gave even more pleasure to Andrea who pushed her sex harder against her pendant… Erelle screamed as the two giant ‘lips’ parted away and covered now half of her tiny body… It was too hot for Erelle… She screamed again… Begging the girls to stop this… But Lisa and her queen were too high in heaven to hear her tiny pleas… Soon Lisa started to moan louder… Her arms wrapping around Andrea’s body she was pressing her chest against her lover’s… Her sex leaking some juices, too… She was about to reach the edge of her pleasure…

“Aaah… Aaahhh….~” moaned the queen… Looking right into Lisa’s green eyes… Her maid had tears in her eyes… Feeling a strange and beautiful happiness even if they were scaring the small Erelle… Soon Andrea started to shiver… “Hmmm… Haaa… Li… sa…” Her lover understood and interlocked her fingers with Andrea’s… Approaching her face and giving a deep kiss to her… It was now enough… “Ha…. Haaaaaaa !!” Screamed Andrea… Her body having one strong jolt of pleasure… Then another… Before she started to leak some juices on the small girl… She gave in to the pleasure she was feeling and came on the small girl…

Erelle was screaming but soon a strong flow assaulted her… The warm juices splashing all over her… Forcing the small girl to drink some as she tried to take her breath… Erelle’s mind shattered… She was just… A toy for the two giantesses’ pleasure… Lisa started to shiver too as she was feeling her lover cumming onto her body… Resting on one hand on the bed, Lisa’s body raised a bit… Letting Erelle out from this ‘hell’… But as Erelle opened her eyes she saw that Lisa’s sex was now right above her… “N…no…-” but before she could finish, Lisa’s sex ‘landed’ on the small pendant and ‘swallowed’ half of Erelle’s body with the top of the pendant inside of her vagina… “Kkhhhh … Aaaaahhhh ….!” Screamed Lisa before having a strong shiver… Erelle couldn’t scream again… Realizing she was now inside of the maid’s vagina ! Feeling the woman shivering… Erelle knew what was going happen soon…

And it happened… Lisa’s body shivered again as she screamed Andrea’s name… Erelle was squeezed hard by the muscles surrounding her before a strong flow hit her small face… Lisa was cumming on her… Bathing the small body with hot juices… Erelle tried to breathe… To escape this silver ‘trap’… But her body was tired… She was about to drown inside this girl’s cum… Erelle’s body had a small gasp… As her eyes closed… Passing out from the lack of oxygen… Feeling a strong warm darkness pulling her…

A small gasp came out of Erelle’s mouth as she felt a strong pressure on her lungs… She was coughing… Coughing hard all of the juices that were filling her small lungs… Trying to open her eyes… She wasn’t inside of the pendant… Was she dead …? Finally free for this torture…? Her eyes popped open… It was Lisa’s index finger that was pressing on her… “Ah Andrea… She’s still breathing…!” The queen’s face was now in front of Erelle’s vision too… “Good… I don’t know what I could have done with you if you were really dead, Erelle…” Lisa giggled… “Maybe you would just swallow her like our tiny nagas… Besides, I wonder… If they’re that good…” Andrea was remembering Claire’s story… And was now ‘curious’ about this… “Maybe… I could do it today…” Said the queen… Erelle was now laying on the side… Still coughing out both of the women’s juices… But she managed to raise her head when she heard this… “You… You’re not really… Thinking about…-” but Andrea finished the small girl’s sentence “Eating you. Yes that’s what I wonder…~ but well I would lose you in the process… A wonderful toy just like you…” Erelle shivered… “If I could escape this … ‘Game’ of yours… I would gladly die !! Do you really think that I enjoy all you did to me…? You almost killed me !!” Lisa had angry eyes and pressed her finger on the small body… Pressing hard this time “Don’t talk to the queen like this, tiny girl.” Erelle was coughing… Feeling her body in pain “She’s NOT my queen ! She’s just a stupid woman who enjoys making me suffer ! And is she really planning to… Breed my people ? Just like some animals !? I won’t allow this…!” Andrea put her hand on Lisa’s and removed the giant finger from the tiny body “You’re funny, Erelle… You’re at our mercy and yet… You still think that you can win against us…? Let me tell you something… I’m going to eat you… Now. I’ll enjoy this so much… And it will be painful for you… Sooo painful as you’ll be slowly digested by my body… And you’ll be turned into nothing but… My food. Oh and don’t worry about your people… They’ll make some nice pets… I wonder if we can turn them into jewelry just like you… And maybe… Could we also create a ‘legend’ with you…? It would be sooo fun to tell the people that eating a small one will make them even more beautiful… Knowing the Empire people, they’ll believe this easily… And you, Erelle… You will be the start of all of this… Aren’t you happy…?” Erelle had a strong shiver… She was helpless… And soon she would be no more… Her eyes turned empty… Like if life itself left her… She started to cry… But wasn’t feeling anything more than… Fear.

“Look at you… You’re so dirty… Stupid tiny girl… You’re going to be the queen’s food after all…” Said Lisa with a disgusted stare… Pinching the tiny body between two fingers, not caring about the pressure she was applying to the small girl… And soon Erelle was placed in front of Lisa’s face… “Let me clean her for you, Andrea…” And without letting Erelle scream… Lisa’s mouth opened wide as she tossed the small girl in it… Closing her teeth right after feeling the small girl land on her tongue… Erelle was scared beyond limit… She was really inside a human’s mouth… she was so small !! Lisa’s molars could break her tiny body easily… And this tongue she was laying on was… So monstruously big…! A small flick of it could send the tiny girl right inside this opening right in front of her eyes… Lisa’s throat… Erelle could hear the woman breathing loudly and her voice echoing all around her as Lisa started to talk… “Hmmm… She’s so… Delicious… I can’t wait to feed her to you, Andrea…” Lisa’s tongue was ‘playing’ with the small body… Moving it around easily… Making loud sucking noises as Lisa was licking away all of the remaining juices on the small girl’s body… Lisa raised her tongue and pressed Erelle against her palate… Savoring her but not realizing she was actually suffocating her… Erelle’s fist hit the giant tongue and soon it went down… The small girl still laying on it… Lisa smiled and approached her head near Andrea’s… The maid put two fingers on Andrea’s lips… Rubbing them softly… It was now the right time…

Lisa let out a small moan of pleasure as her lips reached her lover’s… Andrea stuck her tongue out… And licked her lover’s lips… Feeling their soft texture before breaking the kiss for a second… “Lisa… Let me feel her… Please…” Asked Andrea while opening her mouth… Lisa put her hand behind Andrea’s head… Approached her again… Ready to kiss her deeply… Erelle let out a tiny cry as she saw the two giant ‘walls of teeth’ open in front of her… But as soon as Lisa was opening her mouth she saw Andrea’s right in front… Erelle knew that they weren’t any possible exit now… “Eeek!” Screamed Erelle as Lisa’s tongue made her fall in the front of her mouth where was waiting the queen’s tongue… Ready to ‘taste’ her… It was now an incredible feeling for Erelle… The two girls were kissing deeply, massaging the tiny body between the two giant muscles… Erelle could tell by the two giantesses’ moans that they were actually enjoying this beyond limits… But it wasn’t so for Erelle… Even if the two women were giving some pleasure to Erelle too… The small girl wouldn’t enjoy this… Since one of them was about to eat her alive… She would die inside of that ‘queen”s stomach… Erelle let out another scream as she was ‘pushed’ by one of the two muscles right into another mouth… Who was already drooling on the small girl with anticipation… The giant lips parted away and quickly closed back up, trapping Erelle inside… Soon she could feel the tongue where she was sitting on shivering… And a loud voice echoed all around her… “Mmmm, you’re so delicious, Erelle… It’s just too bad that we didn’t discover you earlier… But be sure that now… You’ll be the best food for humans… Forever.” Andrea was blushing bright red… Having this small girl at her mercy was so much better than the nagas… Drooling on the small Erelle again, Andrea started to raise her tongue… Making the tiny girl slip to the back of the giant mouth… Erelle was crying… Trying to ‘climb’ back to the entrance… “Stop… Don’t do this… It’s… A nightmare…” And with a soft move of the giant tongue… It was enough to send the small body easily above the edge as Andrea swallowed her.

A loud gulping sound followed by a long moan… Erelle was now trapped in a tight flesh tube… That was pulling her hard, deeper inside the giantess’ body… She was screaming… Trying to grab on anything, but it was useless… The muscles all around her were squeezing the tiny body, making Erelle cough from the pressure and shiver from a deep fear… Erelle could hear the woman’s heart… Beating hard and fast as she was really enjoying eating her and soon Erelle’s body suddenly ‘fell’… Then landed on a squishy ground… It was so hot in there… Making noises she never heard before… The ground was so wet too… Erelle fell on her knees… Realizing it finally… She was inside of Andrea’s stomach.

“Aaahhh she was so good… ~ I can feel her moving inside… It’s soooo… Exciting…~” said Andrea between two moans… She wanted more… Laying on the bed and ‘opening’ her legs… She looked into Lisa’s green eyes… “Please… I want to feel it… This tiny life ending within me as I have sex with you…” Andrea wasn’t much talking like a ‘queen’ anymore… Her mind was filled with lust… And wanted to feel pleasure from within and outside of her body… Lisa was sitting on the bed’s side and smiled to her, biting her lower lip, she loved to feel her lover’s body… To feel her soft skin against her own… Lisa put her hands then her knees on the bed… Moving towards Andrea… Passing her knees… Lisa then laid her body on her queen’s… Putting a hand to rest on each side of Andrea, Lisa started to rub her body against Andrea… Rubbing their crotches dripping with anticipation together… Even if they just came onto each other not so long ago… They were on ‘fire’ and wanted more… Within Andrea’s body, Erelle was screaming… Her tiny body bumping into each part of the giant stomach as Andrea was moving… Erelle was now covered by juices and food that Andrea ate before going back to her room… Then she heard a horrible noise… The ‘room’ started to move… A loud growl mixed with the girls’ moans… And some juices were now pouring inside the stomach… Erelle stayed still… Realizing that the two girls having sex again together was making Andrea’s body hungry and it was about to digest its tiny prey alive… Erelle went against a wall… Punched it with her fist “Let me out…! Let me out !! You’re digesting me !!” But in answer Andrea giggled… “Don’t worry, Erelle… It will be over soon… Would you please move more…? I really enjoy feeling you moving within my body…” Erelle screamed as her tiny feet where now bathing in the girl’s juices… Her skin starting to burn “Stop this… stop this !! I’ll do whatever you want… But let me out !! I beg you !” Another giggle from Andrea “But Erelle… You’re already doing what I want from you… You’re feeding this body of mine… In such a lovely way hahaha ~” Erelle hit the wall with her fists again… It was useless… Feeling more juices coming around… She knew that soon she’ll be dead… And Andrea would enjoy this… Erelle closed her eyes… She wanted to try something… Trying to calm down… Two small glows appeared on her back… Soon the wings of light emerged from her back… But the light wasn’t as bright as usual… And with a cough Erelle fell forward and landed on her knees … Her wings ‘breaking’ and leaving Erelle in the deep darkness again… She was starting to suffer from the lack of oxygen… Still hearing the two women at ‘work’…

Andrea was moaning loudly… Feeling this girl within her was so incredible… Her legs raised and wrapped Lisa’s body against her… Lisa’s face was near Andrea’s… Smiling at her as she was also moaning… Pleasuring her queen… Andrea moved her hand to grab Lisa’s head and kissed her deeply… Moaning in her mouth… It was almost the end… Erelle was now bathing in a pool made of half-digested food and the woman’s digestive fluids… Burning her in such a painful way… Erelle couldn’t do anything but cry… Trying to ‘swim’ made her whole body hurt… Hearing the girls enjoying this ‘execution’ was what she hated the most… Her skin was now hurting her… The acids getting stronger on the so small girl… She wouldn’t last long…

It happened again… Both of the women were pressed against each other… Their mutual screams as they came again together… Their juices splashing onto their perfect bodies… The exhausted Lisa fell on top of Andrea’s body… Her sex juices pouring onto her queen’s body… Andrea was brushing her lover’s hair with her hand… Feeling their cum mixing together on her ‘royal body’… She couldn’t feel Erelle anymore… Maybe she was already dead and fully digested, she thought…

And it was almost the truth… Erelle wasn’t feeling most of her body… A strong burning ‘under’ her skin… She hoped to suffocate before feeling this… But even luck itself didn’t help her to feel better… Erelle’s eyes were empty… She was thinking of everything she had lived… The friends she met… The people she helped… Rin and her sister… Aria… Her best friend that she wouldn’t see again… No one in this ‘Empire’ would remember her… Maybe not even Claire… And she would only be a small candy in Andrea’s mind… Erelle coughed… Tried to move her legs… Tried to move her arms… Nothing happened… She closed her tired eyes… Feeling the giantess’ acids already going inside of her own sex… Burning her from the inside… Violating this small girl who wouldn’t discover ‘love’… Erelle sighed… Trying to focus on her ‘power’… But nothing happened… Erelle’s body fell into the burning pool… Her mind already disappearing as she was feeling a deep pain from her body burning from the inside as Andrea’s acids filled her lungs… Erelle coughed but she was already ‘under the water’. Water that was burning her from all sides, trying to empty her lungs from the acid juices didn’t work… Trying to move again, her body stopped to move… Her eyes closed… The pain vanishing from her body with her tiny life… Erelle’s small self hit the bottom of Andrea’s stomach… Leaving the queen digest what had become just a tiny meal for her…

Andrea knew it was over for Erelle and patted her belly “Well you were delicious, Erelle… And you know what… I’ll be eating one of your people once a day from now… Isn’t that wonderful… That you’ll become a legend…? Even if it will be better for humans… Well… It was nice to meet you, tiny girl… Farewell…” Said Andrea as Erelle’s body got sucked deeper within her intestines… Where she would be digested fully and feed the queen she hated so much… Andrea turned on the side… Wrapped her arms around Lisa who was resting aside her lover and both girls kissed again… Soon forgetting that the queen just killed a small girl and, some time later, she would also forget her…

It was a place beyond time and space… A deep land where there was only darkness… But something was about to change… A soft glow appeared and vanished almost immediately… There was now a tiny shape in this ‘darkness’… Looking like a young girl, wrapped in two wings made of light, one blue and the other white. The small girl had a tiny gasp and her eyes started to open… Her wings opened as well… “Where… Where… Am I…?” Said the girl… She was floating in the darkness… Her wings and a crown made of light on her forehead were the only light around… A bit confused, she was trying to remember… “I… Think I… Can remember… My name was… Erelle.” But she had a sudden shiver and put her hands on her head “No…! She… She… Ate me…! There’s no way I could be alive !!” Erelle wanted to cry but tears couldn’t come out of her eyes… Looking at her hands, she noticed that she was ‘coated’ in a soft light… And her wings were still on her back… Usually they vanished once she was done using her power… “If only you were still alive, Erelle…” Said a voice. Turning her head in a fast move, Erelle faced two people also surrounded by light… But it was slowly disappearing… “Rhis…! Aria! How can you be there …?!” Cried Erelle… Not understanding what was happening… Aria had a shy smile… “We’re here because… Our lives ended. After the humans’ attack, they never returned to the island… We hoped so much that we’d see you again… But weeks… Months… Years passed and we never saw you again. Erelle… We never forgot you… We hoped that you were be safe where you were… But… It looks like it wasn’t easy for you…” Erelle bowed her head… Tried to reach Aria… But she was just floating in the darkness… Even if she was facing them, she couldn’t move… Rhis started to talk “Erelle, you were the best of us… Your humility was your strength when you were helping people… I spent my remaining life doing this too. Your friends Rin and Mira helped us a lot… But we lived happily… With all of our hopes and prayers for you… I’m glad that I had a friend like you.” The two ‘bodies’ started to fade… “No…! Rhis… Aria ! Don’t leave me !!” Screamed Erelle… Aria had a smile “Don’t worry, Erelle… We’ll see you again someday… And this day will be the happiest for us… I wish you luck… And thank you for everything…” Aria closed her eyes… And soon the two people vanished… Erelle heard another voice behind her… “I’m sorry… If only I would have been stronger in my mind and just not a coward hiding behind my so-called strength… Nothing of this would have happened…” Erelle turned her head to face a fading Basil… His face looked tired… Erelle had never seen ‘honesty’ on his face until now… Basil bowed his head down… “Sorry, Erelle.” And his body vanished into nothing… Some time passed… Was it seconds…? Hours…? Erelle was still alone… Wandering in this darkness, not feeling anything… “Is this the end…? Am I really dead…? Did my existence only amount to feeding this horrible queen ? I can’t believe it…” Another voice came out “That’s right… We’re dead, Erelle… But you didn’t fulfill all you could do in your life… It’s not the end… Not for you at least…” Erelle turned on the side… A man was standing here… His voice was emanating experience and knowledge… But something was different, as Erelle remembered… “Fyr…” The man bowed his head when he heard his name, he wasn’t wearing his mask anymore… His deep burn was absent from his face… “Listen to me, Erelle… I don’t have much time. I was wondering how you managed to heal everybody… And even brought back someone from the land of the dead… And seeing you like this… I understand now. It was something that we all knew when we saw you… Your infinite power… And seeing you now even if I… Died many years ago… Erelle… The only explanation would be that you’re ‘Life’ itself… Or to be more precise, you’re something like its ‘avatar’… A little piece of ‘Life’ walking among tiny ones like us… ” Erelle’s eyes opened wide… Fyr never lied… And never talked about anything else but the truth… “But how is that possible… It would mean that… I could resurrect you?” Fyr bowed his head “We had a pretty nice life, Erelle… And Time only walks forward for our own lives… It wouldn’t be a good idea to call us back… But you… You could probably try something… Maybe you could change the human’s hearts and maybe someday… The tiny people would be at peace with them…” Fyr started to fade… “I think my time is over, Erelle… I was glad to talk with you again… And may our minds be forever with you, Erelle.” Fyr bowed and looked into Erelle’s eyes… It was the first time she saw Fyr smiling… Erelle’s mind was now less confused… She was ‘Life’ itself…? So if she wanted she could be again with…?-” a white flash glowed in front of the small girl and engulfed her… Erelle closed her eyes…

And when Erelle opened them… She was laying on a soft texture… It was a bit dark… But she was now feeling her body…! Erelle let out a tiny cry as she knew something had changed… She was alive again. The ground moved a bit and Erelle fell on her back… Between two big mountains of flesh that were… A girl’s breasts… Erelle saw a giant face… Smiling to her… Erelle sat and looked at the giant woman… “He… Hello…? Do you understand me…?” The giant girl closed her eyes… Still smiling at Erelle… Then pinched Erelle’s body between two fingers… “Ahhh… Aaah…! What are you doing …?” But the girl didn’t answer… Still looking at the small Erelle pressed between her fingers… She moved her hand down her body… In front of… ‘It’… Erelle opened her eyes wide as she was held right in front of that giant woman’s vagina… Already dripping wet from anticipation… With her other hand she ‘opened’ her lower lips and Erelle was now in front of the wet and soft skin of the girl’s vagina… The girl held her breath… And with a simple move, pushed her two fingers with the small girl between inside of her… ‘Inserting’ Erelle deep inside her wet vagina… As the giant woman let out a loud moan…

Erelle was still trapped between the girl’s fingers as she was ‘playing’ with the small body… Pressing Erelle against the skin… Rubbing her tiny self around… The place was getting warmer and the moans of the woman more ‘excited’… Erelle’s body was hurting… It wasn’t something she was enjoying… Being just a small ‘toy’ for this woman was also hurting Erelle’s mind… Soon the ‘muscles’ all around Erelle started to squeeze her harder… The small girl tried to breathe but she was coughing badly… The giant fingers released her and instead of pulling her out, pushed her tiny body deeper inside this soft and wet tunnel… Erelle was feeling such strong pressure on her that she could feel her small bones about to break… She tried to scream from the pain… But the muscles surrounding her continued to press on her… Not allowing her to breathe anymore as Erelle finally suffocated with a small cry… The human girl was still ‘playing’ with herself… Not caring about the tiny life that ended right inside of her depths… And soon came hard as she reached her climax… ‘Ejaculating’ the small lifeless body on her bed… Picking up the small Erelle and sighing… “Awww… Another one broken… She was so cute…”

Erelle coughed hard… Feeling her body again… Opening her eyes to see where she was and it was… Darkness again. Erelle wanted to cry… She died… Again. “Why is this happening… Is that really true… Fyr…? I really can’t die forever…?” Erelle was shivering… Her wings on her back had a small glow… It was time for her to be in the world of the living again… Erelle had a small hope deep inside her… If she could live again… And again… Maybe she could try to change people’s mind… Maybe she could change the world… Maybe…

Erelle opened her eyes again… Not feeling her wings on her back… She heard so much noise all around… Before noticing some other ‘people’ around… They were all screaming… Running in every direction… Erelle managed to stand up… Opening her eyes wide… Trying to understand where she ‘landed’ this time… It was a small room in the shape of a small square… There was a giant ‘door’ on a side and… Humans… Humans all around… Looking down to the small ones… Cheering them for an unknown reason … Suddenly the small door opened as screams of terror from the little people echoed all around Erelle… A giant shoe landing on the ground… As a human woman entered the small room and walked to the center… Looking down and smiling at the screaming ones… “And for the next game, we welcome Laura !” Said the woman with a joyous voice… Before another girl came inside of the room… Her giant bare feet were making the ground shake a bit for the small ones as she walked to the center of the room… The first girl started to talk again “All right… For the next game you’ll have to step on the tinies all around, be careful because they could run away if you’re not fast enough. I hope that you’re ready.” The other girl looked a bit shy… Moving her feet a bit and tracing a small line on the ground with her toe “Hhhmmmm yeah I think so… I never tried something like this before and… I hope that they don’t bite too…” The first girl laughed “Hahaha~ don’t worry… They’re not dangerous and it will be fun ! Just get as much as you can in 30 seconds !” Then the first woman got out of the room… Closed the door and left ‘Laura’ in it… Soon the humans all around the room started to cheer her loudly… “Get them Laura ! Think about the prize !” Erelle’s eyes opened wide… It was… A game ? Those humans were… ‘Playing’ with the small ones’ lives…? Anger filled Erelle’s eyes… There was no way to reason with a human that didn’t care even a bit for them… Erelle stayed immobile… Looking at all the small ones screaming around her… Trying to run away and looking for any opening in the walls to escape this horrible ‘game’…

A bell rang… And Laura started to walk… The giant feet raised in the air… And with a fast move landed right next to a small girl… “Haha~ I told you that they’d try to escape!~” said the first woman behind the glass wall… Laura pouted “Don’t worry little girl… I’ll get you…” And she took another step… A loud sound echoed in Erelle’s ears… The tiny scream of that small girl before getting stepped on by the giant sole… The loud ‘landing’ making all the tiny ones turning their head… To discover this horrible sight… The small girl… Laying on the ground… Not moving anymore… In the audience, all the humans were cheering Laura again… Erelle noticed that… They were enjoying this… To see an ‘execution’ like this where the small ones wouldn’t stand a chance against humans… The giant foot was now in front of her… The toes of the girl curling a bit… Ready to crush her next victim… Erelle was standing firm… Defying the girl with her stare… Laura hesitated… “Aren’t you afraid, tiny one…?” Erelle didn’t move “No. And I won’t be afraid of you… You’re just a monster… Enjoying killing us… I didn’t expect the humans to be that stupid…” Laura’s eyes opened wide “Well… You may know that… You’ll be no more soon… Won’t you run…?” Erelle had the same cold stare… “No. Do it… I won’t run… I won’t let you enjoy this… Now, step on me… Monster.” Laura looked a bit pissed off… Started to raise her foot and put it above Erelle, looking at the cold stare between her toes… “Ewww you’re not nice, tiny girl…” Before putting her foot down… Stepping on Erelle…

She was pushed back when the heavy foot landed on her… Erelle’s view was now filled with… Skin. She was under the foot of the girl but not dead yet… She couldn’t move… The weight was increasing… And she heard the other humans yelling “Finish her…! Crush her, Laura !” And with a smile… Laura finished to press her foot against the ground… Erelle suffered an indescribable pain… As she heard her whole body break… Before her mind was getting filled with darkness… Laura raised her foot again… The tiny body stuck against her sole… “Hmpf… Stupid tiny… Know your place…”

Erelle opened her eyes… She was here again… The same darkness surrounding her… Her wings of light glowing… It was true… She couldn’t die… Thinking of that woman again, she could feel a deep hatred building up inside her… But it wasn’t what she was supposed to do… Maybe… Maybe next time she would meet a human who would listen to her… And soon Erelle’s body disappeared again… Leaving the darkness for a new life…

Meat… She was laying on a large portion of meat… Erelle coughed… Where was she this time…? Trying to get up, she realized she couldn’t move… Trying to move her head, Erelle saw something ‘covering’ her… It was salad… And a giant piece of bread on top of it… She could heard two voices nearby… But they were a bit far so Erelle couldn’t understand what they were talking about… What sort of nightmare did she land in now? And why was she inside food? Soon one of the voices came closer… “Aaah I can’t wait, mom…! I really want to eat her…!” It was a young girl’s voice… Was she talking about Erelle…? The small girl let out a tiny scream as she could feel the giant hands picking up the small snack… “Aaah she’s alive, too… I can hear her, mom!” Said the voice again… Before another voice could be heard close to Erelle… “Hurry up and eat, dear… She’ll make you grow… And you’ll be cuter, isn’t that wonderful…?” Erelle’s eyes opened wide… She was… Food for this young girl…? The girl opened her mouth wide… Erelle not seeing this… And with a chomping noise… Erelle screamed… Realizing that… The girl took a large bite and… She was within…

Erelle was screaming… The girl was chewing her food… Not caring about the tiny girl… Erelle almost landed between the giant teeth and would have been chewed into oblivion if she hadn’t dodged… The young human was humming… Enjoying her food and the small girl inside… Soon, the giant tongue started to raise… Erelle was covered by the girl’s saliva… Shivering from fear… Remembering that it already happened to her once… When a cruel human woman decided to eat her… Erelle’s legs got closer to the dark ‘pit’… Trying to talk to the girl… “Please… Don’t eat me… I’ll… Do whatever you want…” But the young girl didn’t want anything else… Tilting her head back and raising her tongue fully… She let the small girl fall in her throat and swallowed her.

Erelle was bathing into the girl’s acids… Her stomach was really active from the food she ate… And that food was already melting all around the small victim… Erelle tried to scream… “You’re already starting to digest me… Do you really want to kill me…?!” But the girl answered “Di…gesting…? What is this…? Mom…?” The other voice asked the young girl to just wait… And not to talk to Erelle… That she was just her food… “You hear this tiny one…? I can’t talk to you but… Make me beautiful… Please…?” Then the young girl stood up… Made Erelle fall into the acids… She tried to swim… But only got deeper… A strong burning on all of her body again… Her lungs filling with this horrible liquid… Erelle coughed… Her eyes slowly closed as she drowned… Becoming just an extra piece of meat for this girl’s body…

And it happened again… Erelle died… Again and again… Erelle tried to ‘save herself’ and sometimes some of her people too… She had always some minutes or hours to live before ‘the end’… There was also a time where she managed to survive a few weeks… Living as a tiny slave… Until her ‘mistress’ decided to dispose of her… Erelle ‘discovered’ many different time periods… Always travelling many years apart… Sometimes in the future and some other times in the past… But every time it ended the same way… With a powerless Erelle that couldn’t do anything to save herself and forced to see her own end… Until the next time she would appear in another ‘life’ then die again… And again…

The determination Erelle had at first… Many days… weeks… Years ago… Started to fade… Erelle lost the count of her deaths… She wasn’t sure how she died the first time, too… Her eyes were tired… She was still floating in the darkness… Her wings glowing less than before… She wanted so much to change the world… That she almost lost herself, too… Atop of her 16 years… She was as old as someone who had lived hundreds or even thousands of years… Erelle had a strange laugh… Looking at her body slowly disappearing in the darkness… She wouldn’t last much longer… Her ‘power’ itself was fading away with her mind… And soon Erelle would rest forever… Lost in time and space… A tear rolled on her cheek… Even if she couldn’t cry in this place before her heart was filled with despair… And Erelle started to scream… “Why…?! Why…?! I never asked for this ‘curse’…! I may be Life itself but in this case why do I have to suffer like this…!? All those humans who played with and ended my life… Was all of my existence destined to be just a toy for them…?! I can’t stand it anymore… I… Want to die…” Erelle bowed her head… Tears finally falling out of her eyes “I want to die, please… But… If I die… Nobody will remember me… I never knew what love was… I’ll never have a child… I’ll be alone… Forever… Haaaaaaaa !!!” Erelle put her hands on her face… She was fading away again… If she had to come back to life again… It would be the last time… “Please…!! Someone…!! Remember me…! Don’t let me fall into oblivion…!! Please… Don’t… Leave me alone…” Erelle’s wings had a soft glow… She noticed a change in their light… “I can’t give up this fight… I can’t give up all of my people just because of this cruel queen’s decision… But… I’m tired… And the best choice would be to… Give someone else this power…” Erelle started to pray… Her wings started to glow a deep white and blue… As Erelle made her decision… Using her power of Life to create a ‘new’ life… Her white wing started to fade away… Erelle was using all of the power she had…

And suddenly… Her white wing shattered… Erelle let out a tiny cry of pain… But it was the ‘price’… The wing fragments came around in front of her… A soft and warm glow started to shine… Erelle closed her eyes due to the light… And when she opened them again… A young girl was now right in front of her… This girl was looking like a 2 year old… Sleeping… And looking like Erelle… This girl had the same white hair and almost the same face Erelle had when she was younger… “So in the end I can really create Life itself…” Erelle moved her other wing and she could finally move in that dark space… Turning around the small sleeping girl, Erelle was putting her hands on her… Hugging this small girl as if she was her daughter… No, she WAS her daughter… “You’ll be me… You’ll have everything I have… But I can’t allow you to have my memory… You have to be ‘clean’ of all of those painful memories…” Erelle faced now the back of the girl… Hugging her from behind… “Life won’t be easy for you… But you have my blessing… I’ll be watching over you…” Erelle placed her hand on the girl’s back and soon her blue wing shattered too… As a wing shape was appearing on the young girl’s back… Erelle’s crown faded slowly from her forehead too… To appear above the wing shape on the girl’s back… “I give you everything… And I’ll pray for your success in this special ‘mission’… Where humans and tiny ones like us would be happy together… ” Without its power… Erelle’s body started to fade… She was hugging the girl… Whispering in her young ear… “I’ll be forever by your side… Erry…” And in a soft glow… Erelle vanished from existence… Leaving the young girl in the darkness… Her back started to glow a bright blue… As she was about to travel for the first time… In her first ‘Life’…

Aya was a young small girl… She was 5 years old at this time and had long red hair… She had just lost her parents some days ago and was crying alone… Her mother taught her how to survive in this world… But it didn’t help Aya to get over this sadness… The human was too fast… She caught Aya and her parents so easily and… Played with them like some toys before getting bored of them… And killed them in the end… Aya was tired… She was walking for hours… Without a real destination… When she saw a strange blue glow behind a wall that disappeared after a second… Aya’s eyes opened wide as she never saw something like this before… But she thought that it was her imagination… maybe… Approaching the corner of the wall she took a peek carefully… In case there was a human near… But there were none… Except a young tiny girl laying on the floor… Aya had a shiver… Seeing the naked girl in front of her… Aya’s eyes focused on the girl’s hair… It was a deep white… Aya was remembering the small people saying about this color being the mark of the witches… And that it would also bring curses and disasters around… Aya shook her head… She never believed those stupid tales… And this young girl in front of her was just about 2 years old…! How could she curse someone… Aya sat next to her… She was wearing a small piece of cloth on her tiny clothes and taking it off her shoulders she wrapped the small girl in it… The girl had a small shiver… “Are you all right…?” Hesitated Aya… The white haired girl opened her eyes… Looking all around… Then stopped on Aya “Who… Are you…” Aya put her hand on the girl’s forehead “I’m Aya… Do you have any family around…? I wonder how you got here and why you’re naked…” The girl looked at Aya with her deep blue eyes “I don’t know… I don’t remember anything…” Aya smiled “Don’t worry… I’m sure it will come back to you someday… Do… Do you mind if I take care of you…? To tell you the truth… I lost my parents and I don’t want to be all alone…” The white haired girl nodded… “Yes… Aya… I wouldn’t stay here alone too…” That younger girl made Aya smile… She put her hand on the girl’s cheek… “It’s decided then… I’ll take care of you like… My sister if you don’t mind. But please… Could you tell me your name… If you remember it…?” The white haired girl closed her eyes… Feeling this girl taking care of her… And that would become her sister later… “My name is… Erry.”
