Seasons of War Episode 10-RosesChapter 10: Roses27th of SolisWhen compared with other villages the Heroes had visited, Heartwood was a bustling city, and it seemed like they'd arrived in the middle of a festival. The city was covered with ribbons and banners, many of which had stars painted on them, and a band played in the town square. Aelita pointed to a large tree on the east side of town, which she identified as a vhenadahl. This particular tree was covered in unlit lanterns, and the branches shaded the gate, over which hung a colorful banner, though the teenagers were too far away to read it. "This must be a very special holiday for the elves to take the time to decorate the vhenadahl." Aelita commented."I think the people of Heartwood will take any opportunity they can get to celebrate." Odd shrugged. He leaned back on his heels. "As the name suggests, they're in love with love. I wouldn't put it past them to be celebrating some preteen's first kiss."Jeremie opened his book bag and read through his calenda
Seasons of War Episode 9-MoonbornThis episode goes out to my new beta reader, Lost Lantean!Episode 9: Moonborn21st of Solis"We're about ten days from the city of Kadic." Jeremie announced that morning at breakfast. Kadic was the largest non-port city, and also had the highest collection of magistrates, who hunted blood magicians and those who were possessed by demons. "I'm hoping that we can get there without Xana turning her eye on us. We've been lucky these past few days." He said. The Wise Man was correct—they hadn't seen any of Xana's constructs since Dhaune had been revealed to be a traitor.Laura sat up. "She probably thinks that we're too busy tearing each other apart,"It hadn't been directed at the Colonist, but Yumi still visibly grew angry. "I swear to the gods, Dhaune will pay for what she has done." She hissed. Yumi was still beating herself up over Dhaune's treachery, even though it had happened eight days ago.Aelita placed her hand on Yumi's shoulder. "It wasn't just you who was fooled by Dhau
Seasons of War Episode 8-the IllusionEpisode 8: the Illusion10th of SolisDhaune had been with the Heroes for ten days now, and she had collected a lot of information on them. She didn’t know how much of it Xana could use, but she recorded it all in her mind. She had recorded their fighting styles, for one. Yumi, Ulrich and William were more forward with their attacks, whereas Laura, Aelita and Odd tried to stay away from direct fighting, as they were better for ranged combat. Jeremie tried to stay out of the combat as much as he could, since he truly had no skill for it. He tended to give orders to the others, including Dhaune, whom he used to confuse the constructs.Dhaune also studied their interactions more closely, especially since she had planted seeds of mistrust inside of their minds. It was interesting to watch—Laura and Aelita had apparently hated each other ever since they’d met, and after Dhaune had lied to Laura, having told the Fair that Aelita had said she’d belonged to a group of f
Seasons of War Episode 7-DhauneEpisode 7: Dhaune1st of SolisWhen Laura woke, Jeremie was still tending to the fire, though it was now only embers in the pit they had dug. It was the first time she'd been alone with him since Koranth, though that had been two weeks ago. "Good morning, Princess," He said, not looking up from the fire. Jeremie, nor any of her companions, were ever informal with her. Aelita called her names, but Laura did the same. Laura thought Aelita was suspicious, and she needed to tell Jeremie, who had become sort of their leader, though the Fair often tried to undermine his authority."Good morning, Jeremie. You're just the Hero I wanted to talk to," She said, sitting next to him by the fire. "Do you want me to get that going for you?" She asked, pointing to the fire pit."If you want to, sure," He said as he leaned back so as not to catch his hair on fire as Laura started a larger fire. "Now, what did you want to talk to me about?"She struggled to find the words. "It's about the elf," She said
Seasons of War Episode 6-DreamlandEpisode 6: Dreamland16th of MatrinalisXana slammed her fists angrily on the table. “How do these children keep evading me?” She shouted, clearly frustrated at her recent failure. Dhaune tried to comfort the Matron, but clearly she was too frustrated to fall to such false comforts. “How are they so strong? They survived the burning of Capital Lyoko, and the attack of Narza. What power protects them?”Dhaune smiled. “Perhaps the magic of friendship is protecting them and giving them strength?” She offered, offering a shawl to Xana.Xana stopped pacing, thought for a moment, and then looked at the slave. “Dhaune, do you have any idea how incredibly stupid you just sounded?” She asked, not really angry but honestly curious. Xana had been slumbering for a century, and depended on Dhaune to explain things to her. But some things were timeless.Dhaune half-laughed, “I suppose you’re right, Matron Mother,” Dhaune watched as Xa
Seasons of War Episode 5-AmbushedEpisode 5: Ambushed14th of MatrinalisOdd was the last to wake up, and was pleased to find a warm breakfast waiting for him. It had been a long night, with physical exhaustion combating acute terror. A warm breakfast was welcome. Aelita had found some wild herbs in the woods, and she’d seasoned the porridge with them, with seemed to increase their stamina. The teenagers packed camp and Jeremie pulled out a map. “It seems to me that the closest town is Juno’s Eye.” Jeremie said, pointing to a position on the map. “We came out of the Dendar passage around here, and we went west from there, so I can’t imagine we’re any farther than this.”Odd disagreed, “No, we aren’t there. We’re here. See, the tunnel let out here, though we did go west. I don’t think Juno’s Eye is closest, though. There’s a village called Narza at the base of the Baramunz Highlands. There are many dwarves living there, so there are boun
