The relaxing back and forth rocking of the horses soothed Willow's shaken nerves as the group of warriors made for the small village of Wynnath. Emmeth threw several concerned and curious glances her way, but didn't pose the question that burned in his mind, who was the person who wrote that note? Willow obviously knew whom it was, but she wasn't telling. And there was a haunted look in her normally carefree brown eyes that he didn't like. But it was understandable that she wouldn't necessarily trust him, he'd hidden his father's ring from her, a Ring-bearer of one of the Four Rings, so she probably didn't trust him enough to confide in him."We'll rest here for a moment," Emmeth instructed the group. "Let the horses rest."
"What is the "fallen star"?" the prince prompted.
Ryshdare shrugged. "She said that it would be like a large boat but with wings. A sky-ship? And made of metal as well."
"Hmm," Willow grunted, wondering if the "sky-ship" was the starship that had deposited the escape pod in the stream.Emmeth gestured with his sword. "Come with us." Ryshdare nodded meekly.
As they started off, Willow glanced at their captive, and tried to figure out if he knew who the "illusionist" was. "That's really very not good. But D won't be here, at least. But that means I'll have to face her alone."
Wow, thirty seven! I'm going to try to do a chapter EVERY WEEK from now on. It's on my New Year's Resolutions :)
