CHAPTER XXXXIV – Short Encounter

Chi, Zahn and Tor-Atimus rode into the mountains north of the Human Settlement for a two hours, then ran into three Orcs standing upon some sharded rocks, some 80′ ahead…

…as if waiting for them.

Tor-Atimus stepped forward,”We wish to speak to your Leader…” he spoke in Orcish.

The Orcs paused, then started to lead them to their dwelling.

Soon they entered the heavily populated mountainside where the Orcs all watched them go by, but made not a noise.

These Orcs were all wearing black leather armour.

Zahn noted Human slaves here and there.

Soon the three Orcs lead them, and stood before a great tent, where a more fierce looking Orc came out.

“What do you want Human…” he spoke in Common, looking at Zahn.

Zahn dismounted, “I’ve come to request that you leave the Human encampment alone.”

The Orc laughed angrily, “These are our mountains…”

With this he went back into his tent, and the tree Orcs lead them back out of the camp.

“Well, that went well,” spoke Zahn.

Meanwhile to the west in the Port of YORK, where the YORK ROCK RIDERS circled the Port as protectors, Dreyha sent word upon a vessel heading to Despa to Zahn’s Order.

Soon they would receive it, then send some of their Clerics/Priests to retrieve the ship in Jor, and bring it here to York.

Meanwhile Ren and Kinner rode to the cliffs above Jor, and got into a large wooden rope pulled contraption which would be lowered to the Port of York.

Soon they were in the BLUE RING TAVERN.

“I don’t feel right leaving them,” spoke Kinner.

“Then go back,” replied Ren, already half drunk.

“Alright,” replied Kinner who rose, and left.

Ren was stunned…

…but spent the rest of the night drinking.

Kinner made his way to the stables to fetch his horse.

“Want a lift?” spoke the familiar voice of Dreyha from the shadows.

“Dreyha…” he embraced her, “It’s good to see you… But what about my horse?”

“We’ll leave em here for now,” she replied.

Kinner nodded, and Dreyha became a Great Eagle once more and carried him back towards the Human settlement.

So right

Off Center…

Burdenless

Snap back…

So hard

Truths shake

Not lost…

Perspective

Water comes…

Breath
