Slayers: Mirror Six
Later that evening Lina poked at the fire with a stick, the
shadows of twilight settling down around the three of them in their
small camp. They had set up not too far from the now deserted bandit
camp, the hidden valley razed by a well placed Dragon Slave.
Her hair was almost same color as the flames Lina tended as
she looked over at Naga, "You don't remember?"
Naga shook her head firmly, the black haired warrior woman
carefully sharpening the great sword that she usually carried over
her back. "I'm sorry Lady Amelia," the leather clad warrior gently
said to the young woman who was sitting on the other side of the
fire, "but I don't have any memories, not past a certain point."
"There is a resemblance there," Lina noted, looking between
"Indeed," Amelia softly agreed, her short black hair glowing
in the firelight. Her white garb shimmered in the light as she
looked at Naga, "My elder sister has been missing for many years, I
had hoped that you...."
"Even if I was," Naga said to her gently, "I am but a
mystically produced copy of the woman. You would still need to seek
out the original."
"And no," Lina swiftly anticipated the question as Amelia
looked at her curiously, "I don't know where the original Naga is."
Amelia nodded with a soft sigh. She hesitated but
asked, "May I ask what caused you two to stop being partners?"
"We were rivals right from the beginning," Lina lay back,
looking up at the starry sky, "and that was what ultimately broke up
the partnership. I walked away after we fought over a bounty we had
won and I haven't seen her since."
Naga slid her sword away with barely a whisper, setting the
great weapon aside but still easily within reach. "What are you
going to do now?" she asked.
"I'm not sure," Amelia said. "I know I need to let my father
know about this," she reflected then lit up, "I know! Lina, Naga,
would you care to accompany me back to Saillune?"
Lina sat up again, looking over at Amelia curiously as she
drawled, "And why would we want to go see Phil?"
"My father could identify if Naga is my sister better than I
could," Amelia said eagerly, "and with your Naga's help we could try
a similarity spell."
Naga nodded thoughtfully at that, "Use me as a template and
then look for anything similar. My different personality shouldn't
create too many problems." She looked over at Lina before saying
with a smile, "I'm willing."
Amelia hid a smile as she added, "I'm sure my father would
be willing to compensate you for your time and trouble."
"Why didn't you say so," Lina smiled back impishly.
Naga rolled her eyes at that comment. Lina curled up,
falling asleep not far from where the two women sat talking. They
fell silent for a moment, Naga looking over at Amelia and studying
the younger woman thoughtfully.
"What?" Amelia asked softly.
"What was your sister's name?" Naga asked her curiously.
"Gracia el Naga Saillune," Amelia said simply.
Naga's lips moved as she repeated the name to herself
softly, getting the feel of it. "Gracia," she murmured to herself
softly, "I don't know if that's quite my style."
"You didn't use it much," Amelia said, "you prefered the
Naga looked up at her calmly, "Don't make too many
assumptions. You yourself haven't recognized me as your sister."
"Fair enough," Amelia agreed, "but...."
"You want that hole in your history," Naga mused as she
looking into the fire, "that piece ofd your past restored."
"Exactly," Amelia nodded. "With all that my family has been
through over the years," she said, "it would bring my father great
happiness if my sister could be restored."
"And I'll do whatever I can to help," Naga promised
warmly, "as long as I'm not seperated from Lina-san,"
Amelia blinked, looking at the sleeping figure then at Naga
in confusion. "You and she...?" she said faintly.
"No," Naga shook her head firmly, an oddly sad little smile
on her face,"but I gave my work to accompany her."
"I would never see another forsworn," Amelia agreed, still
studdying Naga thoughtfully.
Naga looked away, a bit of a blush to her cheeks. "We'd best
get some sleep," she said, "it's going to be a long day tomorrow."
"Of course," Amelia agreed and they settled down to sleep.
Lina snuggled into the warmth, sleepily wondering if the
fire was still going. 'No,' she mused, 'Naga and Amelia wouldn't
have let it keep burning.' She opened her eyes a bit, peering
sleepily, then her eyes popped open wide.
Naga's face was peaceful, her short dark hair framing her
handsome face. Her breasts were pressed against Lina's front, rising
gently with her breath. Lina turned a bit, blinking, and saw Amelia
snuggled up against her back, her child-like face sweetly innocent.
'They really do look alike,' was the odd thought that ran
through Lina's mind.
With some effort the slim redhead slipped out of both
women's grasp, watching as they fidgeted a moment before settling
back to sleep. Cheeks red Lina walked off into the woods, gathering
more firewood and trying to recover her composure.
'I don't go that way,' Lina thought as she walked back
towards the camp. Still, laying there with Naga, it had been oddly
exciting to her. Looking at Naga's sleeping face she had been
tempted to press forward, to kiss her just once.
"Lina," Amelia was stretching out, her black hair messy from
sleep, "you're up early."
"Something woke me up," Lina said dryly, dropping the lumber
by the fire. She frowned, noticing Naga was gone.
"Lady Naga left to wash up at the stream," Amelia informed
her pleasantly. She began rooting through their packs, "Do you want
me to make some breakfast? I'm sure I saw a bag of nutritious
porridge in here somewhere...."
"Thanks," Lina stacked the wood in the fire pit, igniting it
with a casually tossed fireball. "Be right back," Lina waved as she
headed towards the stream.
The sounds of rushing water grew louder as Lina approached
the stream. She broke through the trees and brush, stopping cold in
honest surprise. Naga was standing out in the stream, her clothes in
a pile on the bank. Her back was pale but muscular, matching
glimpses of her arms Lina had seen. Her waist was slim but healthy,
and the bottom that faced Lina was probably one of the best that the
world had ever seen.
"Naga?" Lina croaked out. She cleared her throat, then
repeated in a bit louder.
Naga turned slightly, covering her breasts with one hand,
reaching down to shield her lower parts with the other. "Yes Lina?"
Lina turned, quickly, her cheeks beet red. It wasn't the
nakedness that was the problem, it had been the cool, assessing gaze
the warrior laid on her. "Amelia's starting breakfast," she managed.
There was the sound of movement in the water, then rustling
as clothes were pulled on quickly. "I'm sorry," Naga put her hand on
Lina's shoulder, "I thought I'd be done before anyone came looking
Lina met her gaze, glad to see that Naga was fully
dressed. "I didn't mean to disturb you," Lina managed.
"It's all right," Naga reassured her, running a hand through
her wet hair. She looked Lina over, "Do you want me to stand watch
while you bathe?"
"Maybe next time," Lina murmured, moving to head back to
