“Everyone on Davelda is immortal. Well, was immortal, as they are again having children. It’s a long story, but Inchell is over seven hundred years old.”

“How old is Makinor?”

I could not help but smile as I answered, “Fifty-two.”

“No, Nemerra. I have heard too much, seen too much. I am hoping my father understands. Wait for me to finish, Nemerra, then we can make plans.”

I believe the girl began crying, although was relieved to hear an older lady say, “I believe I can understand your caution, Master Lossurp.”

“Thank you, Sheikha Deshim. Do not fear that I will work against your plans. What I fear is what I am going through forcing me to take a different path.”

He seemed embarrassed, but replied, “Her younger sister is being presented to my father for me. I’m a second son, but it seems this mission is giving me status.”

I had to ask, “You have not heard from your father?”

“I won’t until it’s final. That is why I am talking to Cherine. She’s a classmate, and a friend. She is making sure that I am not against it.”

Princess Jelnaya then said, “You see, Makinor. You make plans ahead of time.”

“I don’t know,” I replied. “Considering the two were with each other, I guess Krachern could be said to have been making a move on Inchell. Why haven’t you been doing that?”

“She does not worship a god of our world.”

“Always something, isn’t it?”

He was adjusting his sword belt as if preparing to spar with me, but froze to say, “Excuse me?”

“Are you willing to kill for it?”

“That is a little extreme, don’t you think?” I replied.

“We are talking military. We are talking some group, possibly another military, out there already firing missiles. We are talking about those of Lossurp’s country playing politics and maybe making threats. It could go there. Make the decision now, as once things start I believe we will need to see them through.”

“If that is true then when they come for the rifle they should do so nicely.”

“Our problem is that we don’t care. We just want to complete our mission. Whatever else is going on, is something we would rather not deal with.”

Makinor asked, “Why is that our problem?”

“Because we are going to have to deal with it.”

I had moved up to better hear the words. What I heard made me glad that I did. Feeling the need to get in the middle of this conversation, I moved up to ask a question I felt would give me a perspective on what the divine champions were sensing.

“Makinor, are you suggesting that the show with the military is not as they said?”

He replied, “It was not the military that disrupted those missiles. They were going to let them strike.”

“And why would they give up?”

I felt that was a dumb question. “Because no one else has made it. It’s still there, and no one has claimed its discovery. Everyone throughout the ages has given up.”

The man nodded, then said, “Then I will give you my blessing. Please, Honored Duchess, make yourself at home.”

“How much would a horse like this cost?”

Makinor replied, “Three pounds of gold at a minimum. It depends on things after that.” He looked to Princess Jelnaya and whispered, “I did not get a discount.”

She replied, “Wearing shiny armor they probably assumed you could afford it.”

“I have a home – Jelnaya, I can’t bring a wife there, especially one like Inchell. It’s a simple place.”

“Okay. Do you fuss at Onathia for that, or does she fuss at you?”

A very displeased expression crossed his features, then he admitted, “Onathia just asked me the same question.”
