No Price is Worth the Cost
Chapter Two - B

(Hallith)

...
I climbed over rubble, then screamed as I made a dive on a tentacle. That might sound dramatic, but truthfully I was just trying to quickly get to the appendage. It was not just lying there, but quivering and squirming. That dive put me over some rubble and upon the source of trouble quickly and effectively.

As I made further attacks, I heard the screaming voice of Chertish. Yes, the guy annoys me and uses language that I prefer to ignore, but he was a capable member of our group. No, we do not argue and fight with each other, because we each know that it is not worth our time and will probably end up with painful memories. I thus listened to what he said.


As stated, the Quartermasters do work to end the threat upon the people.

No Price is Worth the Cost
Chapter Two - A

(Hallith)

...
“My village is being attacked by monsters.”

I am sure that we all heard, but Pesloe went ahead and stated the facts. “Village. Monsters.” She then turned to the lad to ask, “Are you hungry?”

Boys are always hungry, so I did not wait for his nod. I simply approached with a bowl and spoon. Pesloe took them from me, blew on it to assure the lad that it was not hot, then she handed it to him. He was soon stuffing his face as she brought him to sit by the fire.


The Quartermasters display their manner of solving problems.

No Price is Worth the Cost
Chapter One

(Straekin)

...
The braggart turned to the crowd while pointing to my husband. “You and me could return as rich as this fine dandy here!” The man looked at us, then continued to speak in a loud voice as he tried to include us in his presentation. “I do not know the two of you. Which kingdom pays for such fine clothes?”

Terish had been sitting calmly, but I could tell had been bothered by the man using his name when he displayed a coin in his hand. I tried not to smile as he flipped a large gold piece to the braggart. While I liked seeing my husband in action, as long as he was sitting calmly no one was dying.

The man looked at the coin, then said, “I cannot read this script. What kingdom minted this?”

From across the room a man wearing metal pieces over an outfit of unshaven animal skins declared, “Thiminy.”


A new tale of romance and wonder begins.

The second Neselle story –
Of Maturity and Change in General
Chapter Thirty-Nine: Dealing with Success

...
The large voice of the divine being that had yet to show itself rang out, “Run, foolish pigs! A new life is now yours!”

I saw the animals rushing from the cave realizing that they were once people. I stepped onto the path pushing aside those who tried to stop me. One soldier was a little forceful, but I drew my sword. He stepped back probably worried that I would attack him, but I spoke to have him realize that I planned to use it for another purpose.

“Worry about the people! Your job is to protect the civilians!”


Neselle has to face a lot of decisions as events rush upon her.

Chapter Thirty-Eight: Assault of the Cave

...
Not wanting to get out of my bedroll with a man around, I just asked him, “Is everything still going as planned?”

“No – yes. Basically, it is what you commanded, only better. The pigs really only put out guards on the path down. We managed to bring in troops from around the mountain, and have them surrounded. We should be able to make a quick decisive strike without any real loss of life.”

“That would be wonderful.”

“Yes, but we still have those divine beings to worry about. Get yourself ready, Neselle, and hopefully we can be celebrating by breakfast.”


Celebrating by breakfast? If only things would go so well.

Chapter Thirty-Seven: Decisions of Right and Wrong

...
I muttered, “I’m not stupid.”

“No one is saying that you are.”

“You’re thinking it.”

“Neselle!” I knew that tone of voice, and turned to the golden lady. “What we are thinking is that we are worried about you. We love you and don’t want you hurt. You’re not stupid, and no one is thinking you are. Young and inexperienced, okay, but not stupid.”

She moved with a handkerchief to put my attention back on my face as she said, “You know the drill. Whatever you do, and whatever results, we will discuss it later.”


At least Neselle is trying to learn, and not assuming that she already knows.

Chapter Thirty-Six: Facts of the Past

...
“Are there any stories, even in the mythology, of a group of people being transformed into animals?” When the others looked at me, I explained, “Minotaur supposedly conned the cows of Dordeshi by promising them a transformation into minotaurs. Why would they believe it?”

A young male wolf gave the simple answer, “Stupid cows.”

Before a wiser wolf could speak, I worked to support my question. “Do you think the pigs are hoping to become some human-pig – orc? If so, is there any evidence for such being possible?”

The elder male wolf said, “If there was, you would think that it would be part of our stories.”


Neselle has come to accept that answers can come from unusual sources.

Chapter Thirty-Five: The City without Minotaur

...
All I could do was lift my blade. The difference in size between Minotaur and me made the act as meaningless as expecting my clothes to act as armor. The blade of the ax was longer than I was tall. The weight of the metal was probably in tons compared to my pounds. I did say a prayer, but that was about all I could do against the strike.

Maybe Minotaur found my actions funny. Maybe the light from my sword did affect the great creature. Maybe my prayers somehow caused a reaction. Maybe Minotaur just considered attacking a simple girl to be beneath him.

He spoke instead of attacking. “Girl, at least tell me your name.”


Sometimes just facing a problem is the most difficult part.

Chapter Thirty-Four: Battle in the City

...
The military leaders spoke in their microphones to relay my authorization for the vehicles to head to the multi-functional stadium. Thinking to hold a commanding presence, I turned Nathan toward the line of cows. I saw a rifle pointed at me, and heard the report. No bullet struck me or my mount, and I listened but heard none of the military speak of being wounded. I had Nathan take a few steps forward, then I spoke to relay some advice to the cows.

“You had better move.”

I cannot say how much power my words had, but with the sound of the vehicles coming at full speed the cows decided that they had better not hold their positions. As they moved to each side, troops rushed forward with their weapons at the ready. The cows dropped their fronts with their legs spread indicating that they recognized that they no longer had any power.


Neselle accepts that to threaten to fight means one must be willing to fight.

Chapter Thirty-Three: The Situation Develops

...
“Ah, no. Your Goddess is accepting our guidance, but her words clearly indicate that she is not one that prefers conflict. I am not saying that you should not practice with it, but that – as in the case with that monster – you can win the battles without a need for major combat skills. Keep your focus on the religious and historic matters. Save combat practice for other times.”

“Well, ah,” I could not think of another topic, but simply remembered that I had not done something I considered important, “thank you.”

He let me hug him before saying, “You’re welcome. Still, Neselle, you should know that my primary mission is to learn. I am learning a lot by watching you. I thus have to thank you and your Goddess for allowing me to be part of this mission. I’m here for you, Neselle, but let me say that I am quite proud of what you are accomplishing.”


Whatever she might be accomplishing, her work is not finished.
