Chapter Two
(Doris)

"How can you be so-oh-oh," yes, Sidney stretched out the word to over-emphasize my inflection, "not fully pregnant? In case you have been blond all these years," yes, I am blond, "we men use pregnancy as an established criteria. I mean, you are either pregnant or not. You cannot be partially pregnant."

(Jelnaya)

They were shouting my name. I just laughed in response. They probably thought I had paused recognizing the problem. I however simply slowed down enough to safely jump from my mount. Doing something stupid that might kill me was one thing. Having a good animal die from my foolishness was another. While they shouted my name, I ran on knowing that the only life I had to be concerned with was my own.

Another Crisis Handed to Me

As I rode out, I saw another horse gallop toward me. The tack was rather colorful with shiny rivets, but the one riding it was clearly lovely. I did not know why Queen Nauthia felt a need to come to me, but I rode out where our paths could intercept while keeping the rising undead dragon in view.

She came up to me to ask, "Can you handle it?"

"I hope. I killed it when it was alive, but things undead can be a lot of trouble."

"Call your king."

This was King Chellor's land. He was the one who had supreme power, so the one with ultimate authority. His troops thus had the responsibility to travel throughout Peranty and enforce the rules of the king.

The Reason for Wives

Aden turned to me and said, “My lord, you must help, or at least determine the value of what is being said.”

Her father interjected, “Now, Aden.”

“No.” She had her hands grab mine as she stated, “This is Mersidda’s home, my lord. She is your wife as well, so this is now your, our, family. If those monsters do come to plague this land, it is your responsibility to see to the security of this land.”

Mersidda’s father now spoke, “I can damn well –“

It was Aden that asked, “Lord Harbest, who did Prince Aneron take as his second wife?”

“Oh, he did not claim a simple thing like my daughter. Prince Aneron had plans for his life. He claimed Princess Northevy.”

“What? But she was married to –“

And More Family

Mersidda had told me, and informed Baron Behammir, that her home was about two days from Nemurk. While everyone with the noble was mounted, they had a loaded wagon just like we had. Mersidda however said that it was usually a loaded wagon that left and returned, so two days should be the proper time.

Family

Aden’s father had a rather comfortable camp established. Mersidda was driving the wagon, and I knew better than to try and direct her against the directions of the soldiers. I simply dropped from the wagon to stand and examine the placement of tents, items, and fires. Aden’s father noticed me, and rode over to ask a question while still sitting on his horse.

“You have a problem?”

“Yes. You have been here a while.”
