“Possibly.” Sonia frowned quietly. “It strikes me that those times were likely very brutal.”

Darlydan gave her an amused look. “And you don’t think the modern world is brutal? Take it from me, there may be less blood but in other ways it’s just as bad, if not worse.”

Sonia gave him an obviously skeptical look but didn’t challenge him. He chuckled and shook his head. Read the rest of this entry »

“My mirian says Ken is responding well,” Adrian said when he arrived about half an hour later. “But it’s going to be at least a week before he can safely bring him around.”

“I’d imagine not,” Sarah said. “The pain would be excruciating if he brought him around too soon.” She rose to her feet and inclined her head to Kadira. “Thank you for the tea, Kadira-alra, but as I said, I need to go to Waldhafen before we go home.” She looked over at Mantilan and smiled. “I’ll come back and tell you about your heart friend’s kin.” Read the rest of this entry »

It was a couple of hours later that Sarah knocked on Kadira’s door. She looked exhausted but Andrew was glad to see her. Even though they’d only discussed Mantilian and the situation on Earth, he couldn’t shake the feeling that if their mothers were in the same room much longer, they would start planning a wedding for him and Naria.

I know what you mean, Naria said to him privately as she brought more tea for Sarah. They do have that vibe, don’t they? I’ve told mother that we’ll decide what we do about the bond we have. She was quiet for a moment. I would like to make it permanent, but it’s our decision not theirs. Read the rest of this entry »

Andrew watched his mother head out the door with Mantilan, and then looked back at Kadira.

“Moritah Plain?” he asked. Beside him he felt Kimi shudder violently but she didn’t answer.

“That’s a terrible story.” Kadira also shuddered briefly. “Moritah Plain was home to the largest city in the Heartlands. Moritah was larger than Waldhafen, even, and had the largest Core Gate at its heart. About two centuries ago, Shalriya and Mitakrian attacked it, intending to force their way through the gate and destroy the Core.” She rubbed at her temples. “There were far fewer warriors then, but the three that the Core called managed to stop them with the help of the guardians – but the battle left the whole plain totally lifeless. The entire city died and Mantilan was one of the few survivors. We still don’t know who saved him.” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N 2: Torvawk, I hope the email you leave when you comment is correct because I’ve sent you something. If not pop me a message via the contact form with the correct one and I’ll send it again.

“I’ll grab Dalrydan-mirian and ask to talk to Laxmi while I’m here,” Sonia said as she finished her drink. “Thank you for the tea, but I’m surprised that you have it. I was expecting some sort of herbal brew when you offered.”

Kadira chuckled. “Lyrrekka-ida isn’t the first twice-made you know. There was one who joined Ystelyan’s court about a century ago who missed the beverage and snuck back across to get some plants. He is a lifeweaver and was able to get them to grow well here and the drink proved quite popular.” Read the rest of this entry »

Sonia took a seat at the other end of the couch from Andrew as Naria poured tea for her. “Thank you, dear.” She looked back to Kadira. “Now what did you want to talk about?”

“Forgive my impertinence in raising this, but I think you need to look to Andrew-idan’s well being. He’s been through a lot and with all that’s happened since, he’s been too busy to sort through it himself.” Read the rest of this entry »

Kadira smiled as Naria poured the tea for the three of them before sitting down herself.

“Naria was telling me about what is happening on Taloa just before you arrived, Andrew-idan,” Kadira said. “It sounds awful.”

“You don’t have to add the honorific,” Andrew said. “Andrew or Drew is fine. And yes, it is, and it’s all my fault. If only I hadn’t been so gullible, Emms wouldn’t have captured me.” Read the rest of this entry »

The room Naria had pulled him into was a cozy sitting room decorated in cool blues and soft greens and lit by softly glowing crystal lamps.

The only people in the room apart from him and Naria were a dragon boy about the same age as Karilya and a tall, slender woman, who were seated on one of the comfortable couches. The woman had a spindle of pure mabain in her hand and appeared to be teaching the boy how to spin threads from it. Both of them bore a strong resemblance to Naria. Read the rest of this entry »

Indaturan was waiting for them in a quiet bed chamber which Talira had guided them to as soon as they arrived with Ken. Once Ken had been settled on the bed, Indaturan sat beside him, and laid a hand on Ken’s forehead and closed his eyes. After a moment he swore harshly in draconic and reopened them to stare at Sarah.

“The person who did this to him did it with a single psychic spike?” he asked.

Sarah nodded solemnly. “She did, and I’m sure it was deliberate. I’ve no idea how she managed it since it didn’t seem very controlled at the time but the damage seems targeted.” Read the rest of this entry »

An exhausted-looking healer was kneeling by the bed when Sarah led the group into the room where Ken was being treated. Ken was still unconscious and Arnold was kneeling on his other side, watching his brother with an anxious expression. Sarah cleared her throat and both young men looked around. The healer immediately leapt to his feet.

“Doctor Tyler! Thank goodness you’re here. I don’t know how much longer I can keep him breathing.” Read the rest of this entry »
