Honing in on the signal of the blackened crystal, Hugo felt Oneiros was near. I'm coming Oneiros....I won't let you down... she thought to herself, feeling her gem growing stronger. He more active it became, the more she felt her body changing. Emerald eyes spotting the two beings from above, she felt a surge of energy run through her. She saw Eugene...she knew he had Oneiros...and it fueled her with a fury to protect the one she loved.
From above, one would hear a mighty screech of a roar...it was unlike any sound a normal animal would make, something between a wolfs howl and a lions roar. A shadow swept past, before a huge clawed paw swiped down and grabbed Eugene by his throat. Slamming him to the ground, a huge furred beast bared down its jaws at him, wings spread out wide. Green eyes gleaming, the beast held him pinned with a single clawed paw. "Give him back to me! Give him back!" her echoed voice demanded through jagged teeth. With another roar, she bite down on the gem in his chest, her own glowing brightly. Whisps of light trailed to his gem, trying to draw Oneiros from it into her own. At the same time, she was snarling and trying to rip the gem from his body angrily.
