Chapter 2 The First Stone"In one and half weeks you will need to send me an army of a thousand swordsmen, cavalry, archers, and the fastest horse you have needs to be ready for me." Leofwine commanded to the king.
"All of this, just to bring Conrad out of your king's prison?!" The king was surprised, and not prepared for all these requests.
"You want Conrad out of there? Give me what I have asked for " Leofwine turned to leave. "And he is not my king." He stated. "I will leave at midnight."
Leofwine left the kings room without noise, Rahab followed him. He left the palace gates and walked through the market place, bought a few more items and pushed himself to go through alley. As he reached the end he noticed the same woman he had seen the day before, waiting.
"So you're Leofwine, am I correct that you are the man who left his country?" She asked, standing in his way.
"You speak rightly, but your intention of knowing this is only because you want money from who owns you."
The woman looked at him; their ey
Chapter 1 The LetterLeofwine,
I have received information from a close friend of mine, that you despise the ways of your king. I know very well about him, maybe even too much. But the matter at hand is this. I request your services in my palace; I have heard so much about you that I know I can trust your wisdom. You will live in my home, and live here forever. You will have everything and anything you ever want, the finest servants will be given to you. The best horse and the most crafted house shall be yours.
Let me know as soon as possible.
Two weeks had gone, and the king had heard a word from his close friend. He became worried for his friend, for he usually received letters every three days. The following day, the king heard word that Leofwine had arrived in the palace gates, with a friend.
"Bring him immediately!" Cried the king.
The two soldiers standing beside either door of the palace throne room opened the doors to let a solider out to fetch Leofwine. He came back a minute later with two men, wh
Xenia's StoryXenia's hand were red with blood, her face was red with sweat. And she had cramps in all the places she could think of, some she never knew she could have any. Her quiver bound around her, and a dagger in her hand was soaked in blood.
She was running for her very life, she had killed and now they wanted to kill her, she didn't know where or why she was running, Xenia didn't care. Before she knew where she had gone, Xenia had dropped ten feet down, she had ran off a hill, but she could still hear off in the distance the sound of yelling and hoof beats. She also heard a deafening screeching sound, and immediately covered her ears and shut her eyes. When it stopped, she realized that the yelling and hoof beats were getting fainter then she heard the flapping of wings and pounding feet. Xenia stood on a nearby fallen tree, and saw a horrid black creature with massive wing membranes and piercing claws at the end of both wings. When the creature had scared or eaten Xenia's pursuers, its head
Chapter 22 The Book"Like I said," Gunner answered as he helped Lalan up. He whistled softly and continued, "He'll leave a trail for us to follow. See?" He pointed to blood that led down the canyon just as Shade galloped to them.
Gunner helped Lalan up and made sure he wouldn't fall off. Whispering into Shade's ear he said, "Take him back." Shade neighed softly then galloped away. Gunner turned and ran lightly down the trail of blood.
We flew over the trees, and it wasn't long before we saw a huge black horse with a rider heading back in the direction of the shore. I shouted at him after I recognized it was Lalan. He stopped and looked up as Sharma landed softly, careful not spook Shade.
"What happened?!" Aysel and I asked simultaneously.
"David." Lalan said, his face was stained with blood, with one hand he held his shoulder, the other he gripped onto the reins.
Sharma gazed at the elf, "Where is your friend and David?"
Lalan carefully slid down Shade, Aysel and I tended to his shoulder and slowly proppe
Chapter 21 Wounded"I hate to ask who is Sharma?" Ryder gulped.
As he spoke, the dragon landed a few feet away; we had to cover our eyes because the sand kicked up and blew in our faces. Two women, a boy and Faramund slid down the dragon's shoulder.
"Sharma is King of the Fire's; you know his son and mate." Siegbert said.
"Plamen and Ugne?" I asked.
"Correct, he flew here to protect the Queen, princess, and prince." Seraphina said with a chortle.
"Queen?!" Aysel yelped.
The four humans and dragon walked to meet us.
"Hello Siegbert, Seraphina." The dragon smiled.
"Sharma." Seraphina and Siegbert said simply, both bowed slightly in respect. Sharma returned their bow.
Faramund stood still beside the boy, he gazed at all us, almost ashamed that he had left.
"Ladies, and gentlemen, this Raziela, Queen of Akosh, wife of Boris, mother of Faramund, Trinity and Bryce." Siegbert introduced.
We all bowed to Raziela. For about an hour we listened to Queen Raziela as she told us her story. It was dark when we se
Chapter 20 Deadly MetalOnce Sirius realized who these people were, he gasped and hugged them both. Xenia did the same.
"I usually recognize you when you're in the water." Sirius laughed.
"It's OK Sirius; we haven't seen each other for a couple years." Siegbert said.
"What's going on? Looks like you're looking for someone." Seraphina asked.
"We're trying to find Prince Faramund." Xenia answered.
"You are, I'm not!" Ryder called.
I glared at Ryder, and he gave me a look.
"Didn't I say I wanted to forget about him?" Siegbert asked his sister.
Seraphina nudged his ribcage.
"Who is your companion?" She asked, noticing Xenia's little dragonet.
Xenia smiled. "This is Nishant, Impressed him a few days ago." Xenia scratched his head, which she now found out he loved very much.
Seraphina smiled at Nishant, her eyes twinkled with a watery glow.
"So what brings you two here on dry land?" Sirius asked with a chuckle.
"The Water Lord has commanded us to tell you of a concern. A concern about a deadly weapon to humans." Si
