AS--Where's Damien?

"Damien!" yelled Brumby, glaring at the surrounding forest. "Damien, this isn't funny! Answer me! I'm your father, for goodness sakes! DAMIEN!!!"

I stood up, my hand going to my bow. "I think something might have happened to him," I whispered, my eyes searching the forest. I turned back towards Brumby, saying quickly, "Get the camp ready for flight, okay? Get all of our things packed up in our bags and get ready to put our fire out. While you're at it, you might as well make a torch. I might be coming back quickly or in awhile. But when I get back, the camp needs to be ready to be picked up and left immediately." I paused. "I don't know if I'll be able to find Damien, but I'll certainly try."

Brumby grasped my hand. "Thank you," he whispered.

I nodded and head off into the forest.

The forest got darker as I went deeper into the foliage. My hand was on my bow at all times. I sometimes wondered as I moved silently through the trees if Damien was just doing this to spite me and his father.

If he was, then he was even more of a jerk then I'd ever cut him out to be and maybe he kind of deserved to be lost in the middle of the forest and to have me and his father go off without him.

But I had promised Brumby that I'd try to find Damien.

So I'd try to find Damien.

I didn't dare call for him. In my opinion, since he hadn't answered his own father's calls, then something really had happened to him and if I called out I might've been endangering him more.

I heard a twig snap behind me and felt my heart beating wildly. I calmed myself and climbed a nearby tree, watching the area carefully. It was only when I felt the cold fingers touch my neck did I whirl around....

Chapter Whatever in which Walt and I go on a ride and talk about ugly people

"Thanks for saving me from the clutches of Melorada," smiled Walt as we rode our horses quietly through the glen.

I'd managed to shanghai the pair away from the royal stables when Lochinvar wasn't there. Sadly, though, his own steed hadn't been there, so I hadn't been able to get ahold of it.

"You're welcome," I grinned. I shrugged. "I guess it was kind of my actually really saying sorry for how rude I was when we first met."

Walt shrugged. "It's only natural, I guess. I mean, I am a peasant and I'm ugly and everything."

I shrugged, too. "In a way, Walt, you're only ugly if you say that you're ugly."

He gave me a look. "Huh?"

"Melorada thinks she's pretty," I pointed out, "and she's really ugly. But she seems to have lots of people convinced that she's really pretty, doesn't she?" I paused. "And, besides, you're not as ugly as Lochinvar, so there's really not anything to worry about."

Walt was quiet.

I didn't hear the next part. Maybe something different might've happened if I had.

"Well, you're not ugly," he whispered.

AS--The Mysterious Blue Glow

We journeyed through the day. The surroundings were familiar--the same surroundings that I'd known all my life. The forest hadn't changed just because two strangers had invaded my home and offered for me to go on their quest with them. Though, in a way, it seemed like it had. We traveled for days on end. In the daytime, we barely talked. At night, Damien disappeared off into the forest, and Brumby and I studied his many charts and maps that he had to try and find out exactly where we were. The days passed by much in this fashion. It was like Damien and I had a sort of agreement--neither of us talked to the other, and we each lived our own lives even though we were stuck on a quest together.

"What's this mean?" I asked Brumby one night, pointing to one of the signs on the map.

"What's what mean?" he questioned, looking at the map in vain. I could see it in his eyes--he couldn't see it.

"This blue symbol," I pointed out. "See? It's hovering right over this country." I put my finger right on the mark, hoping that he would see it.

"I'm afraid I don't see anything," Brumby whispered. He glanced up at me. "But is it possible...? No, surely it couldn't be... only the pr--" He cut himself off. Warily, he glanced back over at me. "Arawyn..."

"I don't understand," I whispered. "I know it's there." I looked back over at it. A faint glow. It hadn't faded off.

"Maybe Damien can see it," smiled Brumby hopefully. Turning towards the forest, he yelled, "Damien, get back here! I need to see if you can see something! Damien, where are you?! Damien, I'm talking to you! Yes, YOU! Damien!!!!!!"
