“So we’re going into the void to investigate what the tear is like on that side?” Lydia asked when she and Sonia arrived at Ystelyan’s Palace the next morning.

“That’s the plan,” Darlryan said. “And if it seems safe, I want to try flying through it to see what’s happening inside it.”

“That might be dangerous,” Ystelyan said. “We don’t know how the thing works.”

“But it’s not a bad idea,” Indaturan said. “If we don’t sense any dangerous emissions, we should try it. It lets energy through so it should let us through in our resonance forms.”

“I don’t like it.” Ystelyan looked over at Talira. “Even if they go through, don’t join them. Come back here and report.”

“That’s a good idea as well,” Indaturan said. “Just in case something does go wrong.”

“So when do we leave?” Lydia asked.

“We’re just waiting for Kylissan-alran,” Indaturan said. “Alaryia thinks he’s her best person for the job. Which is odd, since the Kithreia really don’t like the void.”

“But having a Kithreian there does seem a good idea,” Talira said. “I know becoming a dragon has altered my senses and I don’t think it’s just me, so he might pick something we don’t.”

“Yes, that’s the general idea,” Kylissan said from the door and had aparently been there long enough to hear the conversation. “And I guess I don’t much care for the void but we rebels have had to inure ourselves to it in ways that those who still live on Kithra haven’t.” He looked over at Darlryan. “Al says you still have problems with my family, Darlryan-mirian. Is this going to be an issue?”

Darlryan laughed and shook his head. “I don’t think we do. Not unless your sister-in-law is coming too.”

“Marateka?” Kylissan’s eyebrows shot up. “How do you kno–” He shook his head. “I don’t want to know, do I? And not a chance. She hates me for being married to Al, and the feeling is mutual. She has issues with dragons.”

Darlryan snorted. “That’s an understatement. And I think it’s safe to say we don’t have an issue, then. She’s the source of the issue.”

“That’s good,” Kylissan said. “If we’re all here, shall we go?”

“I think we should,” Indaturan said. He transformed to his energy form and vanished. Talira and Darlryan followed his lead within seconds.

“Come on, Lyd.” Sonia took her hand. “I’ll show you.”

“I think I’ve got it,” Lydia said. She imagined herself turning into fire and within moments, the world was silver fire. She sensed her mother transform into a small tornado of black wind, which wrapped around her and pulled her into the swirling energy of the void.

Somehow it seemed worse than when they’d passed through it when they’d rescued Kayleigh and Robert. Lydia was sure the energy hadn’t torn at her flames this way then. Nor had it buffeted her around, trying to tear her away from her mother. A moment later, she felt Talira’s energy grasp her as well, followed by Indaturan and Kylissan.

Everyone hold on to each other, Indaturan said, confirming her suspicion that something was wrong. We seem to have jumped into a void storm.

Yes, Darlryan said. And it’s centered on the tear.

    Wow! Things are developing. What’s going on in the void? I wonder if the void itself is alive and upset by the tear… 🙂

  2. mjkj says:

    Oh, a storm is awaiting them…
    😕
    Seems like someone was expecting them…

  3. torvawk says:

    Ok, weird imagination here. Is this like the whorl poll above a drain affect? What is leaving the void? Who is siphoning something off the void? What does this have to do with humans needing to become dragons?

    • torvawk says:

      pool not poll

    • Rebecca Sutton says:

      All will be revealed soon.

      But one thing? Humans needing to become dragons?

      • torvawk says:

        You are going to make me find the reference? ok. give me some time.

      • Rebecca Sutton says:

        Yeah, because if you find it, it’s a mistake. (Humans can only become dragons if they become Kithreiri first).

      • torvawk says:

        This is what I was thinking of when I made the comment. Boy was it a search. But it is not as clear cut as I remembered.

        “Because they wanted it to happen.” She scowled at the blocks. “They wanted the dragons to exist – supposedly to combat something worse.” Her expression sobered. “I don’t think the ends justify the means especially since I’m not sure they didn’t cause that as well – albeit not deliberately.” She shook her head. “No, I suppose it would have happened anyway but why did they… I don’t get it.”

      • Rebecca Sutton says:

        Oh that! Yeah that’s not a mistake. I thought you meant directly.

    BTW, interesting little tidbit (wow interesting http://grammarist.com/spelling/tidbit-titbit/). I don’t think that was clear anywhere yet.
