A Novel by DarkJade
CHAPTER XX – The Game
THE KINGDOM OF NORAWYN
IN THE NORTH LANDS
King Eterr’s Black Castle of Noarawyn sits upon The Great Mountain Rock, with two tall black towers sticking out of the middle of it…
Beneath it Forests and Snow…
Agatha, upon the Great Grey Dragon Tu Masa, is the first to arrive in the skies just south of The Castle… Also upon Tu Masa’s back, are the remaining Seven Knights of The Dark Fortress of Doom…
As the Castle comes into view Tu Masa brings forward movement to a halt, and holds their position in the southern sky…
Agatha’s hair has stayed black for all of the flight, and her eyes Glow Bright Blue northbound, towards the Great Castle…
Moments later Moskk arrives, carrying Hemmingbyrd, Iliad, Jodan, Sir Elm and the tied up and gagged Queen Sorceress Olamna…
Moskk flies up besides Tu Masa, and Agatha can feel the warm wind of his great wings…
Morr on the other hand is making his own way to the castle, and should be here soon.
“THERE IT IS!! KING ETERR’S GREAT BLACK NORARAWYN CASTLE!! speaks Jodan loudly.
“AYE!” Sir Elm replies.
Agatha then points at the left tower “THERE!! THAT IS WHERE WE WILL ENTER THE CASTLE!!”.
Hemmingbyrd simply nods in agreement.
“WE’RE LEAVING QUEEN SORCERESS OLAMNA TIED UP UPON MOSKK’S BACK!!” Hemmingbyrd exclaims.
“MOSKK HAS GIVEN US THIS HORN SHOULD WE NEED TO CALL UPON HIM!!” with this Hemmingbyrd holds up a great horn.
He’s about to toss it to Agatha, but then she holds up a horn as well “KEEP IT!! I HAVE A HORN AS WELL FROM TU MASA!!”…
Hemmingbyrd nods again, and straps Moskk’s Summoning Horn across his back.
“LETS GO!!” Agatha hollers, and Tu Masa continues her flight, sweeping through the air heading towards the Left Tower…
Mossk follows right behind…
