Friends and Enemies // Half-Chapter Forty // Sisters in Secrecy

"What's up?" Darrion questioned, leaning towards her sister.
   Willow threw a glance at the guys, shuffled closer, and started whispering rapidly in a different language.
   Emmeth heard the hard sounds of the odd language and gave Cole a concerned look. "I have never heard that speech before."
   Cole rolled his eyes. "I have, it's called Khuzdul, and they speak it when they don't want anyone else to know what they're talking about. It's not a language you find here, it's from another world," he explained.
   "Hm," Emmeth answered, wondering what the two were saying.
   But since you probably don't understand the Language of the Dwarves (very few people do, the dwarves are very secretive) here is a translation of their conversation;
   "I found one of the Dwarf Rings of Power," Willow confided.
   Darrion gaped at her. Willow hurried on. "It was Thrain's Ring, I'd know it anywhere. I put it in my box, where it'll be safe. But only for now. Why did you come when I specifically told you not to!"
   Darrion's face scrunched up in confusion. "What? You never told me not to come, we didn't even know where you were! Cole and I are here because we heard that these people needed help!"
   Willow narrowed her eyes. "It's not safe for you to be here." She lowered her voice even further. "The Illusionist is here."
   Darrion's eyes widened. "You're kidding! Why? Oh, well duh, Thrain's Ring. How did everyone take the news about her and well, you know, you?"
   Willow avoided her eyes. "I haven't told them. They wouldn't believe me! It's too crazy! You know that."
   Darrion sighed dramatically. "You don't like, like this dude here right? He really needs to learn what button means on a shirt. They're to be buttoned."
   Willow poked her. "Of course I don't, we're friends. Like me and Cole, except Emmeth is a lot nicer than Cole. He doesn't argue with me all the time. But let's get down to business."
   "To defeat the Huns? Or the Hans? Either one works." Darrion's eyes danced.
   "No. You can't be known to be my sister. If Zaria finds out..." Willow trailed off, her expression worried.
   "Ah, so I can be your friend? That'll be fun, you don't get to boss me around anymore! Sweet!" Darrion exclaimed gleefully.
   "Ha ha, very funny. But we need to be serious, Tash is here too. I'm guess they want the dwarf ring, but it's gotta be more than that. I don't know," Willow sighed.
   Darrion gave her sister a playful punch. "Well, what're sisters for? And co-workers. We'll help ya, don't worry."

I'd gotten just past D's line when I ran out of ideas, so that's why we have a half-chapter. Happily, though, I have an actor who plays Cole now. I'll be doing a character post on him soon. 
Also, sorry for posting later in the day, since we usually try to get things up in the morning {if we get them up at all} but I forgot, so that's why it's being posted now. I've been fixing my missewn skirt and ironing and listening to the new Adventures in Odyssey.
Don't forget to shoot me any questions you have about the {half} chapter!
