CHAPTER XV – Droah
Even with the Hippogriffs, it took two days for us to catch up to Madrean and Sabre who were on horseback…
…right at the bottom of Mount Ridge, the home of the Red Dragon Noah.
We released the Hippogrifs back to their home at the Mage Tower of Priminus, which left us on foot… But the climb ahead of us would not be a good place to bring horses anyway…
Even more so because Dragons love to eat horses, and can smell them a mile away.
Our Ranger Torme took lead, with the Shade girl Kurai right behind him… Which I know made Torme non too comfortable…
…with her black velvet like skin, and black pupiless eyes.
But from what Rune has said, some Shades look for redemption in an otherwise half shadow, half alive life.
So seemed the case with our young Kurai.
In back was our Dervish Syn, a fierce one to be sure… With our newly acquired ‘Silver Warrior’ Sylva…
The two of them seemed to hit it off… Each of them telling stories to one up the other.
Our Paladins, the Dragonborn Rune and Human Sabre climbed together… Discussing the Gods and such…
While our ‘unlikely’ Dragonborn Cleric Madrean, climbed behind them, alone.
Which left me, the Druid Blue, and our Elven Archer Aden climing side by side towards the back.
“How long do you think it will be before we reach her lair?” asked Blue.
“Five days maybe… We’re sure to hit some blistery weather,” replied Ander.
Suddenly Blue stood straight up, “Would you look at that…”.
Hundreds of feet above them amongst the sharded rocks stood a great winged, white pegasus, appearing to look over the party from above.
Ander just stared at it in bewilderment…
Meanwhile Torme made his way back to Blue, “You should try and befriend it Blue… Tame it,” he spoke anxiously.
“Oh… I don’t know… I–” she stammered.
“He’s right Blue… You’re a perfect choice for such an alliance of good,” replied Ander.
Rune, suddenly noticing that the Party had stopped moving, “What’s going on?”.
Just then the Pegasus flew over the Paladin with a nay.
“By the Gods…” Rune mumbled in shock at what he was seeing.
“There’s no way possible that I am worthy of allying with such a majestic beast as a Pegasus…” Blue spoke without thought.
“Don’t you see Blue… That is exactly why you are,” interjected Kurai who had come down to meet them.
“We can’t stay here,” spoke Madrean, who continued to climb on without them.
Sabre quickly followed.
“I’m not risking my life for that one,” spoke Aden unwittingly…
Rune just stared at him.
Torme slapped a hand on Aden’s shoulder, “Your words are wise… But you know you probably would.”
“Come Blue… I’ll take you another route which will lead you to the Pegasus’s Peak… But once near, approaching it is something you need to do alone,” explained Torme.
20 MINS LATER
Blue reached the Peak in which the Party had seen the Pegasus.
Suddenly it landed some 15 feet from her, with a nay.
The two stood and looked at one another for what seemed like forever, but was truly only moments.
“I’m not quite sure what to say…” spoke Blue.
With this, it took a couple steps back.
“I wish I knew your name… It would seem silly to name you, when I’m sure you already have one,” she spoke more to herself than to the Pegasus.
Suddenly it nayed, then flew off.
“I guess that answers it…” she spoke softly to herself, when suddenly Torme appeared.
“It’s alright,” he spoke touching her shoulder, “Just getting a chance to be that close to one is… Well… Something I’m likely to never know,” with this there’s a loud thump behind him.
“It’s standing behind me, isn’t it,” spoke Torme…
…and indeed it was.
