As soon as they were all packed, and the tents were taken down, Devin gathered them all together.

"I think that is about it. Thank you all for standing behind me on this. I expect all of you to treat Jarin and Adriel as you would anyone else, and not as newcomers. We will be heading to the nearest town, Alendale. We will stay there until the suspicions calm down, then head East. Our main objective will be finding the sorcerers that are connected to Lord Nathaniel. We will need all the information we can get, so there will be a lot of questioning with our trusted sources."

One of the men lifted his hand slightly, and Devin turned to him. "What about Jarin? Will we need to keep him hidden, or will he be allowed to be in the open?"

Devin turned to the young man in question. "Well, Jarin, you heard him. What do you think? Do you want people to know who you are, or would you rather just blend in with us, for now?"

Jarin smiled at him. "I think it may be better if I just try to blend in, for now. I do not care if you tell anyone about me, but I would rather not speak with them, myself. I might change my mind, later."

Devin nodded. "That is probably a wise decision. Does anyone have anything to add, before we head out?"

"No, sir," the dark skinned man Jarin had spoken to before smiled. "I believe we are all ready to leave."

Devin smiled back at him. "Thank you, Oni. Well, if there are not any further questions, we should be on our way."


Lord Nathaniel called Alec up into his study. When he got there, he was offered a seat, which he accepted. "I understand that you have known our prisoner for quite a while, is this correct?" He motioned toward the tea sitting on the table. "Feel free to drink some. It is very good."

The young man nodded, smiling nervously. " No, thank you, my lord. I have known him since we were children," the young man was quietly watching him. "Why do you ask, my lord?"

"Because I wanted to know where you stood in this mess with my son. Do you have any idea where he might have gone?" Lord Nathaniel stared at Alec, which was somewhat intimidating.

Alec lowered his eyes. "No, my lord. I also am not sure if Rodney knows anything."

Lord Nathaniel glared at him. "You mean to tell me that you did not watch Rodney, as I had asked you to?"

Alec's head shot up, his eyes wide. "My lord, I watched him, but he was not acting any different. Maybe a little quieter than usual, but that is to be expected, with Adriel and Lord Jarin leaving. I'm sure he was surprised, that's all." Alec was feeling a need to stick up for his friend now, since he felt bad about placing him in this situation. That had been the reason he had given him the pin to pick the lock with.

Lord Nathaniel smiled at him. "That will be all. I think I have gained all the information I needed. You may leave."

"Thank you, sir," Alec waited for Lord Nathaniel to rise, then stood up quickly, himself. He made his way to the door, slipping out. He began to run down the hall, wanting to get to Rodney before the soldiers did. He heard something behind him, and started to scream, as a cloth was placed over his nose and mouth. Alec began to become drowsy, and never felt the knife go through his heart.


When they were leaving, Kain caught Jarin by the arm. "May I ride beside you? There are some things I would like to speak with you about."

Jarin frowned, remembering the conversation he had overheard earlier. "Sure," he continued saddling Shadow, noticing that Kain was riding the young horse from before.

Kain watched him, then grinned as the young noble mounted. Swinging into his own saddle, Kain waited for the others to get ready. As soon as they started out, he turned to Jarin.

"I know I have been untrusting of you, and it is only because of who your father is," he paused, glancing at Jarin. He was unable to turn to him completely, since his young horse would take advantage of it.

Jarin nodded, turning to face him. "Does that mean you will stop avoiding me?"

Kain was quiet for a moment, then he smiled. "Yes, it does. I would like to get to know you, as a person."

Jarin regarded him warily for a moment, then smiled. "Alright, then. What do you like to do?"

Kain grinned, then they began talking about sparring, weapons, books, and several other topics. Jarin was happy to find out that they had quite a bit in common.
