Hearing some words, I gladly replied, “Quafrey appreciates what you said, Jelnaya.”

“Okay, so let me tell you some things that she might not like. I am not going to promise that you will live. I have been defeating these creatures, so I have some confidence, but too much confidence can kill. Should things get desperate, I reduce to caring for myself. Good tactics however can win any battle, so you keep talking to me. Hopefully we can gain an edge that keeps us with a victory.”

“I’m trusting in you, Jelnaya.”

“And I have not bitten off your head when you spoke to me, so you should not fear speaking to me. You hear me? We talk, we make plans, and we figure out how to win.”

“Your family makes siege engines?”

“No, Makinor. If Onathia wants you to get deadly, have her send you to me for a week. I will show you deadly. I will have you meet my father and listen to him brag on the kill power of what his company produces. Might let you meet my Grandfather Terish as well.”

His glance to me had me suspect another question, but he instead said, “After this mission I will see if Onathia will reveal more of her path for me, Jelnaya. In a proper arrangement of things, I believe She-Who-Loves will again simply have a champion of He-Who-Fights join me should things truly have a possibility of getting deadly.”

I left the house as my wife started speaking about what she saw of it. The words disturbed me, as she was the one that put everything as it was. Moving through the community I heard talk of everything from us needing to relocate, prepare for war, to building a church. People called to me asking about Eashae as I stopped to make my own sense of things. Not being able to answer, I saw a strange man with some elder ladies carrying food and headed to them.

Elder Thamoss had a barn, and seeing them head in that direction I ran ahead to open the door. The lady with the red and yellow hair was inside moving with her sword, but stopped seeing me. I pushed open the door for the others to pass while speaking to the one already present.

“I want to know what you did.”

Nebard has to face a major decision.

To Face the Ugly Deed
Chapter Six
(Nebard)

Priven did speak to his mother. I found out when my mother brought him and his mother to my barn. I was worried about a mother goat that I felt was carrying triplets. When I mentioned the situation to the others, Priven’s mother spoke a reply.

“You are being blessed, Nebard. However, just like your mother goat is going to have difficulties, your blessing will come with troubles as well. I am telling Priven, and now telling you, to see them through.”

The Fey Bride of Elfland
Chapter Twenty-Nine
Nagging Problems

The next morning I felt that Lasotherral had listened to my advice and not Chamorrick. She was the one that had a pleasant attitude. My half-brother was not negative, but I gained the impression that he had been up late attempting to solve certain problems by himself. Considering the challenge he had set before him, I could not fault him, but as one providing what had been shown to be good advice I felt he should have had some comfort in my instructions.

Chapter Twenty-Five
Advice from Rabbit

Both Chamorrick and King Naderron tried to get the Ice Queen to say more. I did not get the impression she was denying them, but honestly did not know what to tell them. From what I knew of the fey, I felt that there were things that could be concluded even as the mix with Chamorrick's wealth of different traits could affect his offspring in a multitude of unforeseeable ways. I thus found myself quiet as my father and half-brother tried to interrogate the Ice Queen.

Chapter Twenty-Four – Part Two
Thoughts of Women

Finally, a hand movement from a guard that walked up a staircase just enough to be seen let us know to head to the front courtyard. I felt good as Queanay did not argue with my change of directions. As we walked I restated some of what she told me about some pieces of art just to let her know I had been listening.
