CHAPTER V – Silent Ride

THE EXELUM DESERT

Wolfjade, slumped over, rides his way through the Exelum Desert, far to the east of Breenun Hall, and the hundreds of Dwarves that seek him

He is mourning…

He is…

Lost

His Crusade leading 60 Stormdark Archers, and 120 Stormdark Swordsmen prevailed for many a battle…

7,000 plus killed by his command

Primarily Dwarves of their Six Kingdoms… But also some Humans and Elves

He was alone

His Legion assuredly seeked him, knowing of his escape

But did he want to be found

And return to his life as a Shell of a Warrior…

A Shell of a Knight

“The girl…”

He thought to himself…

“Forget the girl…” he spoke out loud, countering his thoughts

“Forget the…”

And with this he fell from his horse…

The 120 plus degree sun beating down upon him

THREE HOURS LATER

THE JOYOBUN OASIS

TWENTY MILES EAST OF WHERE HE FELL

DEEP WITHIN THE DESERT

FAR FROM THE REACH OF THE BREENUN HALL LAW

Wolfjade wakes to water being thrown on his face

He opens his eyes, squinting blearily, up at a smiling dark skinned human

A Nomad

“Hello my friend…” spoke the smiling man, who was handing Wolfjade a wineskin pouch, full of water

Wolfjade did not react at first…

“Drink or die…” spoke the man

Convincing words

Wolfjade reached out and took the wineskin…

And drank all within it at a rapid pace

“You have been out under our sun a long time my friend… It is amazing that you are still alive,” spoke the man

Wolfjade sits up to see that he is the middle of a Nomad Camp, right by a bright blue oasis, surrounded by lush dessert trees

“Joyobun?” asks Wolfjade

The man is surprised to hear this

“Yes friend…” he reaches out his hand to lift Wolfjade up, “You are full of surprises…”

Wolfjade stands, his grey clothing covered in sand

“Swim…” speaks the man, as he gestures towards the oasis

Wolfjade starts towards the water, piece by piece removing his clothes, then looks back at the man

“What is your name?” he asks

“Haro…” replies the man, as he turns and returns to his friends in the camp

Wolfjade enters the water…

The coolness envelopes him…

The sun still blazing down, but can not penetrate the coolness of the spring

Wolfjade swims down as deep as a man can go…

Then goes deeper, and sits in the darkness of the water’s depths

“Alone…”

In 1991, after raising her up for fifty years, calling her a “superpower”a title she had never held before — in sudden victory the United States cruelly spurned its longtime Cold War helpmate and conjugal geopolitical partner. World terms had changed: We did not need her anymore. Worse yet, she was inconvenient, except in her fallen estate, to showcase our own celestial greatness. After decades of fidelity to the terms of US world primacy — always accepting us as the senior superpower — Mother Soviet’s final act in history, in its fall and subsequent wreckage, was to exalt America’s millennial seizure. History was ours now, and we brought it to a triumphal end.

CHAPTER IV – THE PACT

BREENUN HALL DUNGEON

From the shadows of the hallway outside Wolfjade’s cell door, appears Aliazia…

The two Breenun Hall Dwarven Guards look at one another.

“Open the door…” she speaks as she approaches, a mock air of confidence surrounding her…

“Uh… We’re under strict orders to–” begins one of the guards.

“I am his council… Open the door…” she demands.

Recognizing her from the hearing, they do as she requests.

She steps into the darkness…

Wolfjade does not move, but rather stays seated against the back wall, chained.

“You killed that man…” she spoke with slight pain in her voice.

“You shouldn’t have done that,” she concludes.

Wolfjade raises his dark blue eyes, seen still from the crack of moonlight that penetrates the chamber.

“Is that why you came… To lecture me girl,” he replies.

A silence passes…

“No…” she responds…

She then walks slowly towards him, and drops the keys to his chains on the floor….

…then begins to back slowly towards the door.

Once at the door, she opens it, and passes slowly by the two guards.

“What is it girl?!” one of the guards says, as he then turns to look inside the chamber, only to see Wolfjade standing there.

“Dear god…” he says…

The rest is blood.
