One Knight (Chapter XIII) – Consorting With Dragons
by DarkJade (Written In 2011/Unedited)
Deep in the High Peaks of Hyrand… Within the Darkness of a Great Cave… A Dragon speaks.
“Where is my Mother…” the voice echoes and rumbles the very cave walls.
Also standing within the darkness, but holding a dark blue lantern of light, is Baron Braug’s Sorcerer Onddos… Some ten feet behind him is Baron Braug.
“You are all that remains of the Dragon Kind Tor’Hum…” Onddos imparts, his voice shaking slightly.
“ARROGANT HUMAN!! HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS??!!” Tor’Hum shakes the walls even further with his harrowing voice.
Onddos grows exceedingly pale, as his knees begin to quiver.
Tor’Hum then calms once more “To what was her end…” he inquires.
Onddos looks back at Lord Braug who is pensively watching, then back at Tor’Hum.
“Well… We don’t exactly… know” Onddos timidly admits.
“IGNORANT FOOL!!!” Tor’Hum’s temper rises once more “YOU DARE SUMMON ME TO STRIKE DOWN THE LEADER OF THE HUMANS, AND YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW IF I AM THE LAST DRAGON ALIVE!!!” with this a giant claw stretches into the blue light, and snatches up Onddos…
“AHHH!!! PLEASE!!! NO!!!” Onddos calls out as Tor’Hum’s breath heats the sorcerer’s body, and his great yellow eyes can be seen through the dark.
With this Baron Braug steps forward, picking up the blue magical lantern.
“Well that’s just it Tor’Hum… Isn’t it” he speaks excessively calmly. “Your kind has been gone so long, we know nothing beyond the Myths our ancestors have left us behind.
Tor’Hum calms again, and sets the Sorcerer down. “And what of the Wizard Heirs of Warnlock…” Tor’Hum demands.
“There are two left… My Lord…” Oddos speaks. “And there is a great feud between them… In fact, none have laid eyes on the 2nd Heir, The Wizard Exx, for well over one hundred years… One hardly knows if he still exists” he finishes.
“He exists…” Tor’Hum simply states. “And what of the 1st Heir…” he inquires.
“His name is Adon….” Lord Braug offers. “And he’s not likely to interfere… He has come to loath the human kind, even more than you I dare say…” Lord Braug finishes.
“You must be sure… If the Two Heirs of Warnlock were to come together–” Tor’Hum speaks, but is interrupted.
“This shall not be so” Onddos assures Tor’Hum.
“Just in case… Bring Adon to me” Tor’Hum says as he begins to prepare to sleep.
“Uhh, this may be a difficult task My Lord–” Onddos tries to explain, but Tor’Hum speaks over him.
“Do it Onddos…” Tor’Hum insists.
Onddos bows slightly “As you command My Lord…” Onddos replies, and then turns and leaves with Baron Braug.
