Chapter Twelve - A New Trial

"So you're going to do the old switcharoo?" Caradoc said once everyone had gathered back at the inn and explained the situation. Caradoc remained in his pajamas, having only awoken because of Mederei, and the other three entering their suite. He was still a little annoyed with being so rudely awaken. "Shouldn't have purchased such a large suite." "We need it," Mederei argued as she set a large cup of coffee in front of him, "if only to remain away from your snoring." Caradoc crossed his arms and rocked in his chair. He had taken the most comfortable chair in the suite, and commanded the room like a prince. "I don't snore," he deigned. "You do," the other four argued. Mithrilanna laughed at them. "Such a wonderful locations. I cannot believe it." That had been the summary of most of what she said on the flight back. She had remained quiet for the actual flight, unable to speak beyond the basics. Hugh had kep…

Chapter Eleven - A New Companion

"I will return with the visitors to see how the land has changed," Mithrilanna announced outside the guest quarters. From his bed, Hugh blinked several times and yawned. Not the best way to be woken up - having someone yelling outside, but in Mithrilanna’s defense, everyone else was yelling as well. It didn't feel like morning, more like dawn. Dragons had an excellent sense of time. "What's going on?" Hugh growled as he pushed back the privacy curtain in front of his bed. "Ah, you're awake," Ramses said from the edge of his bed. He had dressed and attempted to brush his hair, but as usual, it stuck out in all directions. That was the reason Hugh kept his cut short - less hassle. Ramses glanced at the only other bed with a curtain drawn. "Mederei's still sleeping." Hugh sat up and went to check on Mederei. She was breathing normally, and appeared to be only resting. Thank the gods. He wouldn't have a way to help her if she stum…

Chapter Ten - Visiting Alfny

"Loonie?" Mederei asked, touching her earring. It was late, and the sun had descended beyond the horizon leaving only the brilliant reds and oranges of sunset. "Is this a good time?" "We're in the middle of research, and I can use a break." Luna yawned. Mederei laughed. "Ramses, Hugh and I were saying the same thing. Have you learned anything new?" "No, not really. You?" "Next to nothing. The information we did find was linked to their most recent events, or, well, the events since the separation." Mederei stretched her arms over her head and arched her back to one side then the other. "Honestly, I'm not exactly certain what we can do to help. One of the grosmater's said it was a trio of wizards who did this, but another one said it wasn't. They started debating about it, and now the entire community is involved. Ramses thinks he might be able to track down some more information, but he's having problems…
