“Not much of a plan, really,” Matthias said quietly. “Darlryan is going to the point where Emms opened the tear. We’re going with him for backup on the Earth side of the tear. The dragons will take the Void side.”

“I’ll fire Andarian’s staff through the crack,” Darlryan said. “That should calm the void storm and then the crack should close naturally over the next two or three weeks. The staff may also speed the closure but I’m not completely certain of that.”

So the backup is because you expect this Xantaria to try and stop you, Darlryan-mirian? asked He who was Indirian.

“Oh, I don’t think she’ll try and stop us,” Darlryan said. “I know she will. And if she doesn’t, Mitakrian will. They need the tear open for some reason, but we should have enough firepower to win the engagement. We’ll have to make sure they can’t reinstate their storm before it finishes closing.”

“That’s going to be the tough bit, I think,” Sonia said. “We’re going to have to arrange guards. Enough guards to ensure someone will be able to get a warning to us.”

It should be within your capabilities, He who was Indarian said. And the plan seems reasonable. No need to over-complicate things. Now, Andrew and Lydia, are you two happy to stay here, tomorrow?

“I wish I was well enough to fight,” Lydia said. “But after what Joanne told us earlier it sounds like I need to be here anyway.”

Who is Joanne and what did she tell you?

“Oh yes, we should tell you about that.” Matthias explained Joanne’s unusual ability and what she’d told them.

That’s worrying. Once you’ve dealt with the crack, you need to look into why your children are so important.

“I intend to,” Matthias said. “Though I’ve no idea where to start.” He looked over at Daniel. “Do you understand why I didn’t sense what was happening to you, now?”

Daniel nodded. “I feel completely overwhelmed here and he isn’t even my heart friend.” He shook his head. “It’s a bit like being drunk, isn’t it.”

“A bi– Wait, when did you get drunk?” Matthias glared at his son.

“Hum…” Daniel seemed to shrink a little. “When I went to the Karate tournament in Bristol that time. A bunch of us snuck out to celebrate with fake ID.”

“I’m going to kill your sensei!” Sonia said. “You were only fifteen.”

“He didn’t know,” Daniel said. “And we had fun. Anyway Kaz was drinking at the reception.”

“That’s not the point!” She threw up her arms. “The odd drink is fine but… oh never mind, we’ll talk about it later.” She looked back at Matthias. “So next stop is Emms’s lab to find these notes about the bracelets?” She looked towards the column of darkness. “We haven’t told you about that yet, have we? We learned something disturbing earlier.” She told him what Laxmi has said about the Heart Bracelets having some sort of malicious motive built into them. When she finished, there was silence for several moments.

That’s even more worrying. The bracelets were made by the dwarves. There should be no way for them to be corrupted.

“We’ll find out,” Matthias said. “I’ll tell you what we learn when I drop Lyd and Drew off tomorrow.”

    Becka,

    I don’t understand the heart friend part. Is that shadow thing Matthias’ heart friend? I might have to start taking notes. I forget who Sonia’s heart friend is… We have meet them already, right.

    OI Becka, you have so many plots twisting I cannot keep them straight. I suspect to keep the story straight you need to write about as many notes as you write the story. I don’t even think I can list off all the plots you have running:

    The kids are important why?
    The memory blocks with alternate contents.
    Tampered bracelets
    Tear
    Learning to become resonance so that variations of visions don’t kill someone
    the traitor
    raising of multiple enemies as kids by the so called enemies


    I am almost sure I am missing about 5 or so. Oh another couple.
    What ever the government is up to.
    What is that secret organization up to that the lost one is working with

    I still think these is more.

      Yeah, he who was Indirian is Matthias’s heart friend (this has come up a few times but not for a while). He was a Svart Alfar and Dariad’s father before he accepted the guardianship.

      Sonia’s heart friend is Nephele and yes you’ve met then.

      I have a knack for keeping plots straight but I do drop the ball occasionally. I may prune a few from Torn Sky when I do the edit, but we’ll see. Some of them will resolve quite quickly now.

    He who was Indirian seems to be nice 🙂

    @torvawk: yeah the open plots are getting on the verge of overwhelming… XD

     
    PS: stuff: formatting
    He who was Indirian’s speech should be in italics I guess…

    If it was a book it actually wouldn’t be so confusing, it’s more that a lot of time passes between each update so it isn’t as fresh in our minds
