I was playing a dangerous game with my body, I felt it was getting too little air to breathe but I was almost done, just a small area on the edge of forest was left. My body began to tremble but I sensed the unwanted guest was somewhere there. Just as my inner sight noticed the location, my body couldn’t stand this state anymore. I felt weak and darkness fell in front of my eyes.
Quintessence of the Story‘Ailintho, if you don’t want to go, I’ll send someone else.’
‘No, Master’, I shook my head. ‘There is no one in the community who has enough knowledge to do it. If there is any druid who can complete this mission, that’s me.’
‘I’m not talking about the journey only, I want to know if you trust the warrior. If not, I’ll find an excuse to send someone else.’
I said nothing and came close to the window. Children were playing hide-and seek among the trees and Lendra was shouting their names to make them return to the hall. The sun was setting slowly announcing the time for rest.
‘Can you trust him, Ailintho? Can you entrust the jewels and yourself to his protection?’
The image of Wanlorn carrying me came to my mind, I recalled his pulsating and alerted yet positive energy and nodded.
‘I think I can. Although I predict he won’t be a good companion’, I smiled ironically.
