CHAPTER IX – TRUST NO ONE

RIVER NORAN

WOLFJADE’S STORMDARK CAMP

WOLFJADE’S TENT

Wolfjade sits alone, staring at his drawn dagger’s reflection…

“Wavering Thoughts…”

Wavering… Loyalties”

“I can not Stop what has begun”

“I am Surely Undone…”

“The girl…”

This last thought jars Wolfjade out of his momentary trance…

“Forget the girl…” he says to himself out loud, and sheathes the dagger

SOME FORTY FEET FROM THE OUTSIDE OF WOLFJADE’S TENT

The Emperor speaks to Eldof, his High Advisor, and two of his Elite Stormdark Guards

“Keep a close eye on Wolfjade…” the two guards listen intently, “Something has changed in him… I can sense it,” he finishes, the guards bow, and the Emperor makes his way to his tent…

…Eldof follow closely at his side, “Why not kill him now?”

“It’s not him that we need alive…” speaks Emperor Lasate

“It is his ‘name’,” finishes the Emperor as he steps through his tent opening, the fabric being held back by two of his guards

Leaving Eldof outside, left to ponder

THE ELVEN KINGDOM OF VERNOS

Aliazia stands on her bedroom balcony, in a beautiful Vernosian gown…

Suddenly there’s a rap on the door, and her Father, Thae-oh-lon, enters the chamber, one hand covering his eyes

“I hope I’ve found you decent daughter…” he speaks with a smile

Aliazia smiles, and quickly makes her way into her father’s arms

“Woe! That’s one strong squeeze,” speaks her father playfully

Thae-oh-lon has blue white hair, and yellow blue eyes…

Suddenly Aliazia looks sad, and turns away, making her way back to the balcony…

Her Father frowns slightly, then joins her

“So you freed the Great Stormdark Knight, Wolfjade…” speaks her Father

With this she quickly turns towards him, almost smiling, but knowing better

“I must go to him Father… I must find him… There is good within him, I know it…” she speaks earnestly…

“Perhaps… But be that as it may, it is I that shall seek him out… And look into his otherwise darkened heart… Only then will I know if what he’s been doing has merit… And if not, why he has done it,” replies Thae-oh-lon

“But father…” she pleads, but he raises his hand, as if indicating there is nothing more to say

And so there wasn’t

OUTSIDE ALIAZIA’S CHAMBERS

Thae-oh-lon speaks to his High Guard Captain, Bre-sah

“Gather a group of 30 of our Archers… We leave tonight,” speaks Thae-oh-lon, as the two of them walk away

NEXT TIME… ORCS
