Author's Ramblings: This week...I'm rushing again. LOL. Big surprise there, but finals are over! Thanks to all who prayed and supported me during this past week/semester. Whew! It's been a long one. Thankfully, I'll have some time to breathe with summer coming up. This week's installment is really short--and I do mean short, as in under 1,000 words short. Apologies, it's mostly dialogue, but I'm off to finish the last legs of a busy week--and by next week, should have our wonderful heroes in Pietrasaan! Yay! Happy reading and have a great weekend--don't forget to leave a comment, I truly love hearing from y'all! ^_^ (Oh, and if you haven't voted in the poll on the sidebar yet, please take a moment to do so! I'll be happily writing away this summer--and I'd love to know what you want to read. So far, a new serial has the most votes... :-) so if you disagree, now would be a great time to let your voice be heard. There are 14 days left in the poll!)
RECAP: Last week, after reviving his apprentice and extracting a confusing explanation, the DP and Eira immediately set off towards the city of Pietrasaan, nestled in the jungle mountains, under the authority of the notorious Queen of the Rangana. Deene has been dispatched to run a few errands for the DP and retrieve Eira's League files.
Walking took forever.
At least, that was the only thing that Eira counted. She was tired and somewhat hungry when the Dark Phoenix allowed a short break. Instead of retiring to a clearing, he simply paused in the middle of the trail and mentioned for her to take a moment to breathe.
“Are we there yet?” Eira sprawled flat out on the ground, preferring the dusty pathway to the greenery lining the edges. “And when are you going to fix my disguise? Are we going to stop to eat?”
“You’re not hungry.” He settled beneath a tree, drawing an exceptionally long knife from his boot. “We’re not there yet and I will fix it. Later.”
