Chronicles of Draezoln

Tales of the world of Draezoln

Chapter 5-5

Almonihah growled. Garkhen nodded, as if in agreement.

“Then I fear we must go after him, for who knows what sort of damage he may be able to do with this artifact there?”

The Commander nodded back, grimly. “I concur, much as I hate the cost. Time is of the essence. I must begin to recall the Rangers we will need.”

He conferred with some of the other Rangers for a few moments, then turned back to the two half-dragons. “All Rangers that can reach here by morning are coming. I pray that not too many Javni’Tolkhrah slip through while we leave the Line unguarded here.”

Again Almonihah growled. “We’ll make ‘t fast.”

Garkhen looked downcast. “If only I had not slowed you down…”

The bronze-scaled half-dragon looked over at Garkhen with an expression of faint disgust. “After knocking yourself out healing us? You’re doing well t’ be standing, blue.”

The Warder shook his head. “If I had but trained harder…”

“You’re being an idiot!” Almonihah roared. Garkhen looked at him in shock. “You did all you could. Just have t’ deal with what’s happened.”

“But the lives…”

Almonihah bared his teeth in annoyance. “Lot more people ‘d die ‘f you hadn’t done what you have… Garkhen.”

“He’s right, Garkhen,” the Commander said. “We need you working, not beating yourself up. I’m guessing that not many others would be alive after what you three have been through.”

Yeah! We’re strong! Zakhin’Dakh screeched in agreement, not quite understanding the point of the conversation, but wanting to cheer Garkhen up… even though said half-blue dragon couldn’t understand Great Eagle.

“I… yes, I suppose it is somewhat foolish of me,” Garkhen said, though his heart didn’t seem to be in his words. “Come, we should discuss what we will do next, yes?”

They spent another hour or so going over what they knew of the amulet and its bearer… which was little, and what they might do to catch him or her. After some debate, they all agreed that there was little to do other than to follow his trail with all the forces they could muster. That decided, they settled down to rest, that they might have the energy and strength to face the morrow.

Yeah, I probably should have just finished the chapter with the last post, but… here’s the rest! 😀
