To Solidify the Mist
Chapter Thirty-Five

There was something very different in the approach of Decholl. He did not come with a flow of blackness. There was an area of dark around him, but it seemed to be an aura and not an inky mist. I also heard the sound of his wings as if he had to completely power his flight. I looked at him approach accepting that this encounter would be different than all the previous ones.

Chapter Thirty-Three

The soldiers of Octugree almost broke ranks as we approached the border of Mochsha’a property the next day. The sky was dark. Orintious spoke of the foul cloud of Decholl, but it looked to me like stalled storm clouds and not the black mist of our opponent. While the local soldiers seemed frightened by the sight of crossing into my sister’s property, I believe our group were excited to hopefully put the threat to an end.

The next day we came to a stop seeing a block of military before us. Ochally was instructed to get down from the horse, and a soldier gained the saddle to ride ahead. We held our position until the soldier could speak with the leader of the military and return with a message.

“Sir, it’s the baron. He says that he wants to speak to you.”

Orintious replied, “He probably wants to speak to Mochsha.”

“Uh, he knows you lead us soldiers, Sir.”

We started the march the next morning toward Mochsha’s estate. While all the men assured Orintious that they were able to handle regular action, he felt it better if they were not stressed. He however confided in Heratin and me that he simply did not trust Decholl. He thus wanted an easy march to assure everyone was fresh should battle again be necessary.

As I was helping Nerframe onto the craft, I looked out on the water and had an idea. Orintious was right there directing his men. I thus did not need to go far to mention my thought.

“Here, take my sword.”

“Why, Vernallor? You think you can handle a weapon of my size?”

The lighthouse keeper did not mind allowing the ladies into the stone building, but he said there was no way he could provide shelter for all us men. Ochally and Minchell would however not leave their masters, and Mochsha would not go without at least one of her brothers. The lighthouse keeper relented to allowing us siblings with our servants while telling the soldiers to find what shelter they could in the small barn.

Chapter Twenty-Eight

I awoke to some laughter, and rose to see a soldier doing a dance with Nerframe. It seemed that she was having trouble with the female steps, but there was a smile on her face as she worked with the men to learn them. As we began our day, Nerframe displayed a very positive attitude about being a lady, although some laughter did sound as she had learned other behaviors that were different for a female.

We left the next morning before sunrise. Even at the early hour the birds lifted as a single flock and kept the sky dark by their presence over us. Our destination was on the other side of the city, so while the lights from above were blocked we could determine our way from points of brilliance from others also needing to see. As we went through the community, the early hour made recognizing a certain figure rather easy.

We discussed the conversation with Orintious upon finding him. He listened to what we said. I believe he spoke about the condition of his men simply to buy himself time to think on what the viscount said, as after trading some comments with Heratin Orintious changed the topic of conversation.
