A/N: Merry Christmas, Readers! Hope you all had a good one!

Karen buried an axe into the chest of one of the Kithreiri trying to stop her and Alban from reaching her father and then kicked him off the blade before whirling as she sensed someone behind her, nearly hitting her father in the process.

Careful, Kaz, he sounded surprisingly calm as he ducked under the blow. I’d rather not go down to to friendly fire. That would be embarrassing.

Sorry, dad, she said. It’s hard to keep track of everyone in this chaos.

I know, he said. It looks like we’re almost done here so I’m going to help Sonia. She’s still being mobbed and the leader broke off from me to go and help his troops against her. He paused as a strange buzzing filled the air. What now?

Darylyan gave a triumphant yell and they looked up to see the tear in the sky close down, leaving just the finest glowing line where it had been.

“Oh, thank God!” Matthias asked. “Looks like it’s nearly done.”

“It’s completely done. That’s as much as I can do but it’s barely leaking now and should seal completely within weeks.” Darylyan sounded exhausted. “We’ll need to watch it to ensure Xantaria doesn’t reopen it but this is good.”

It’s enough, Matthias said. What’s happening in the void?

The others have fought off the attack and are posting guards to keep the area safe before coming to help us mop up here. Even as he spoke, their other first dragon allies appeared around Sonia. The enemy leader looked at them and then screamed something in Draconic before vanishing. A moment later what was left of his troops vanished as well.

Karen looked around at the battlefield; there were a few eggs but more bodies and multicoloured blood drenched the landscaped. “Ugh! This is going to take a while to clean up.”

“We’ll deal with it,” Alaryia said. “Xantaria is going to be mad to have lost so badly. Do we know where she is yet?”

“Yes,” Matthias said. “She’s attacking the dark Sanctuary to try and get to Andrew.”

Alaryia swore in draconic. “Okay, no time to rest then.” She turned to look at Alsia. “Are you coming, Alsia-ida? I think Elsed would be glad to see you in person.”

“I will,” Alsia said “Even if he is.” She glared at Darylyan who stared back equably.

“Don’t worry, Alsia-ida,” he said. “I’m not coming. I’d be no use in this fight. I’m completely wiped out.”

“Perhaps not the wisest thing to tell someone who wants to kill you,” Indaturan said blandly.

“He knows I won’t attack him here,” Alsia said. “Not when he’s probably just saved us all. It would be churlish.” She scowled. “But don’t think this means we’re good, because we’re not.”

“I know,” he said softly. “I wish you’d talk to me about what happe–”

“Don’t!” She flared. “Just don’t! I don’t want to hear your excuses.” She was shaking as she turned to the others. “Can we go and rescue Andrew-idan before I break my word and rip his throat out.”

    hmm some anger problems there?

    So, they kicked butt, tear sealed, and Xantaria is about to get a bigger welcoming party. Should be fun. 🙂

    Torvawk sits back calmly.

    It is a nice action scene. The only plot twist I am trying to figure out is Xantaria’s interest in Andrew.

      He’s red and potentially stronger than her. It’s a massive blind spot for her. (It’s been suggested in text so it’s not really a spoiler to tell you she’s the one who was trying to kill Gerian as well).

    Oh, what is the history between those two???

    PS: stuff:
    In the first part there are either the quotes or the italics missing

    I’d rather not go down *to* to friendly fire. => should that be *due*?
