It Only a Dream Can Be
Chapter Twelve

(Inchell)


I quoted, “There is no hope for kindness / It only a dream can be
I sought from others a cure / For internal torture
There is no hope for kindness / Because it will not help me

There is no hope for salvation / It only a dream can be
I sought a path with tears / To ease my soul through years
There is no hope for salvation / Because it is denied me

Before Makinor could answer, Lossurp asked, “You named your horse Rubber?”

“You mean go because someone from Davelda is involved.”

I continued to pack as I said, “If it does not matter to you, Vulge.”

“There are a lot of others who should go for that reason as well.”

“You lost, Shenorn. Let me have your sword.” When the weapon was tossed to him, he brandished it then did some tricks with it before saying, “Honored Duchess, Baron Nuchirg sends you his love.”

I replied, “I believe my cousin and I are glad our lands are so far from each other. How do you know him?”

“My grandfather is one of those that came with Ferrigote to this world from Gaeskow. What do I gain if I make you gain your sword?”

“I said ‘need,’ so the answer is, ‘yes.’ Also, I don’t consider being about my domains as being away. I assure you that I was handling business.” Hoping to inspire her to get to work, I added, “The one we are supposed to rescue is from Davelda.”

“The book is from Davelda. What am I looking for?”

“Yes. Fergush, well Samayer, gave me this realm. I will not leave it.”

“Well, uh, so you are going to marry some second son, or… who?”

“Yes, well, Honored Duchess Jelnaya, Sir Vidoyer challenged me to sing under your balcony tonight. Said I had as good a chance to win your hand as anyone else. I believe he meant none at all.”

“Now, Dagrouch, I did make Fergush promise me that I would have it all. That does mean a husband. There will be certain requirements, but you are far too young to dash your hopes. You said sing. Are you good?”

“’A spy as you would define it?’ A spy is a spy. You, my lovely, are going to learn things about being a spy.”

I replied, “I said I was a soldier. Out of duty you may do with me as you will, as letting you learn things about being my enemy will not serve me well.”

From a distance, I heard, “Yes, it will. Do it!”
