Ling awoke hearing the cry for help in her mind again, knowing now where it came from, Anderhal.
She paid the innkeeper for her breakfast and headed to Silvermoon to use the orb to teleport to Undercity!
Ling left the city shuddering and clutching her stomach, the smells were powerful there, she was sad now that she had eaten heavily before leaving.
She traveled east, avoiding the patrols of undead till she found the house, inside and upstairs she found who was crying out to her mind, a succubus who was tending a few demons that were sick looking and dieing.
Darwen started to tell her tale, " Our Former Master many weeks ago thought he was strong and could summon us all to Azeroth at once. "
"It would give him a advantage over other Warlocks to use us all at once" She explained while playing with her tail.
"You may not know this but when a Warlock summons a demon to Azeroth he is summoning a Avatar, A Shell that we can control in essence, when it is destroyed we return to the twisting nether unharmed and able to be summoned again.
Darwen starts mixing some elixers and gives the resulted concoction to the Voidwalker and the Imp on the bed that both looked like they were faded and nearly gone. Both perked up a bit after drinking the elixer down.
"This elixer helps them stay alive, but it is nearing its limits that it will work. You see his Spell worked, just a bit too well, it pulled us fully into Azeroth, no avatar, us fully realized."
Darwen points to the green fire stain on the back wall, "That is all that is left of him, he engulfed in FelFire and burned to ash"
Ling looked at her in horror, knowing only a bit about summoning from when she was imprisoned she gasped, "So you have no link to the twisting nether to give you energy, how can I help?"
Darwen looked down almost in shame, "We would have to be bound to you, then you could send us back so we can heal and replenish our strength. But it would mean you control us, we would be slaves."
Darwen sits down in the chair backwards so her tail can be free and sets her head down on her hands. "We don't want to be slaves again to a cruel master like our former. The pain he caused to us was incredible, and I don't want to be used like he did to me ever again!"
"I cast a spell, to call for a master that could save us but would not abuse or hurt us. We don't mind being of use or helping you gain power, it is that we are living beings and want to be respected." Darwen slams her hoof down looking fiercely at Ling.
Ling smiled at Darwen, " I have no desire to hurt to gain power, only to help those that are weak. I will do what I can to assist."
Darwen elated by this jumps out of the chair it clattering to the ground and tackles Ling in a hug, "Thank you Thank you! I hear your words ring true!"
"You don't have a staff to bind with, and it will have to be a powerful one to bind us all at once, then you can return us one at a time back to the Twisting Nether." Darwen gets up and finds a book handing it to Ling, " This contained the contacts of our former master, the one in Orgrimmar should help you if you can pay his price."
Ling gets up taking the book, " How long do you think the potion will work?"
" Another week or two at the most, I am able to go out still and gather, the others are too sick and weak." Darwen looks with hope at Ling, " I am giving of my essence to save them, I am strong but I know I will not last forever, I have a favor to ask before you go."
Darwen pulls out a orb with green energies flowing through it, there is barley any flowing around, it represents the fel energy that the demons are living off of now.
"Can you put some fel energy in? It will give us more time and it would not hurt you like it would me, a night or two's rest would recharge you fully"
Ling looked at her, Darwens face in desperation, begging, tail limp along her legs.
Ling smiled, knowing it was the first time she could truly help another being with her powers and put her hands on the orb focusing on putting a good deal of energy in she looked inside herself and the energy poured, not fully green energy filled the orb, a light yellow tinged the green energy and the orb was filled to capacity.
Ling smiled and said, " That should give you enough time to recover your energy and the others energy, I felt something else and can see its not the same shade of color, but i don't think it will harm you.
Ling then heads to the door with Darwen following after securing the precious orb.
"Our former master had a Felsteed in the barn, I suspect you could ride him rather then walking to the Undercity to catch the Zeplin" Darwen said as she opened the barn door.
"Thank you, and I will be back" Ling said as she mounted the steed and rode off.
