The second Neselle story –
Of Maturity and Change in General
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.

Chapter Thirty-Two: Facing the Pig-Dragon

...
“Neselle, a most darling girl that has come into my life, I call upon Remidda to bless you. May you have the wisdom to see that which others seek to hide from you. May you have the strength to stand up to those that seek to overcome you. May you have the fortitude to prove your power even through hard times.”

I looked to the mountain, then said, “And please have her let me use her sword.”

Baroness Dirchein moved her head back to look at me as she asked, “Her sword?”

“In my dream – in the first one on the operating table, she gave me a sword when I was told not to be found unarmed. I now carry a sword, as I don’t let myself be found unarmed, but I don’t think the sword that I have will hurt a dragon.”


Defiance is sometimes the best response to a threat.

Chapter Thirty-One: Pool of Blood

...
“Lady Neselle,” Elbery’s voice lost some of its usual quality as he stressed my name, “please keep yourself safe. The military are on their way.”

“This corral has already proven that it is not safe. We are going to have to do something, Elbery. All I will promise is that we won’t be stupid.”

After wishing each other the best, Alaner closed the connection with us both turning as Terish said, “Those words of us needing to do something were good.”

I replied, “Honestly, though, I am surprised that the pigs did not shoot.”

Hanell said, “We have guns as well, Lady Neselle. We would have shot back.”


Sometimes the necessary decisions are not the easy ones to make.

Chapter Thirty: The Prejudice of Cows

...
A female wolf responded with, “I just need to pee.”

The bull appeared exasperated as he spewed out, “That’s no reason…”

I blurted out, “Why do we need reasons? We are here, and – well, we are here.”

“Listen, we don’t want insurgents.”

Another male wolf, one of the older ones, asked, “Insurgent? What’s that?”

Althery stepped up behind me while answering, “It means ‘not cow,’ doesn’t it?”


Prejudice really is not a crime, but its shame is that it is often the motivation for worse than crimes.

Chapter Twenty-Nine: Possible Horrors of the Unknown

...
“But that would mean that we have some of your people working with the dragon. Yes. Still, the evidence of that was apparent at the wreck site two days ago.”

From the back of Nathan I could see what Dame Straekin had pointed out. I moved out a ways and saw the tracks of cows. For the sake of those not wanting to think bad of other people, I tried to put the facts that I saw in some perspective.

“There were those that dealt with Berbishet regularly, and they did not work against his manipulations. They claim to have been duped, and I have not spoken against them. I hope that these will also be able to provide some excuse for their actions.”

The male wolf did not back down. “No. This is murder. Those that helped are accessories to murder. We are not animals.”


It is hard to condemn those who did evil with being evil.
