Inheritance Cycle: Barzûl

After the defeat of Galbatorix, Eragon sets out to find a new home for the new era of Dragon Riders. With the knowledge that only the Eldunarí carry, they guide him across Alagaësia until they reach the destined home for the Dragon Riders. As they settle in, Eragon contacts Nasuada to tell of the place where they are settled, and to only share the information with the Riders who are able to make the journey. But when a new young Rider named Barzûl (Dwarf language means cursed with ill fate) becomes Eragon's third apprentice, the tables begin to turn. As time goes on, Barzûl begins to become eager in learning about Galbatorix and soon begins acting much like the overthrower of the Riders. Can Eragon help Barzûl before he seeps into the insane mind that Galbatorix was once enslaved in? Or will the Riders be destroyed before they are even rebuilt?


6. Taeron and Mersoth

"The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies.  

It comes from friends and loved ones." - Anonymous 

     The wind whipped around Taeron like a hurricane though he felt no fear.  Spiralling, diving, and rolling, Mersoth flew against the wind.  Bonded for two months now, they were an inseperable team, though they were young, they still knew about everything that was happening with each other, though over long distances, they lost their connection.

     Mersoth, let's go down, I feel Nasuada beckoning, and you need to rest, we will fly again tomorrow.

    Very well, Taeron, we will go, but that feeling of flying will forever bind you, and you know it.

    Yes, I know it, but soon Eragon will have us join him, and we will become even stronger.   

     Mersoth beat his mighty wings and dived downward landing in the middle of the great kingdom Ellesméra.  Immediately following his landing, two elves rushed to meet him, unsaddling Mersoth and taking Taeron's boot's off so he could walk upon the ground bare foot.  Both creatures walked forward in sync barely giving the two elves time to preform these activities.  Suddenly, Arya and her dragon green dragon Fírnen landed in front of them.  Both Taeron and Mersoth had been too self absorbed in their "amazing" flight to realize that they were flying right behind them the whole time.

     "Taeron!"  Arya's sharp tone made him flinch.

     "Do you really expect that Eragon is going to baby you when you arrive to his home?  You will have no servants to unsaddle Mersoth, you will have to take care of your gear, take Mersoth up, and gain the knowledge of the history of the Riders.  Not the knowledge you already know."  Taeron grumbled a word.  Arya flipped to turn around to face him again.

     "I'm sorry, I didn't quite get that, would you care to repeat that?" 

     "No, I would not." 

     "Then don't say it at all do you understand me!?" 

     "Yes, ma'am."

     "Good, Nasuada is going to scurry you in a few hours, so clean yourself up, and for pete's sake, stop fooling around!"  With that, Arya and Fírnen flew off, and disappeared into the clouds.

    Geez, I wonder what her problem is.  Eragon is going to be great to work with, and I can't wait to see the great dragon rider.  It's not like he's going to drill us.  


A hour later, Taeron stood in his room with Mersoth's snout sticking in behind him.  Taeron was facing his dresser mirror and waved his hand over it, scurrying Nasuada.

     "Nasuada, you wanted to speak to me?"

     "Yes, Eragon has summoned you both to join him.  Though he can't give me his current location, he did tell me the name of the place he is.  You will feel a pull to it and be able to find where he is.  Du Shur'tugal Nángoröths.  Now go to the new home of the Dragon Riders.  Oh I almost forgot.  Colbalt will be joining you in Ellesméra before you leave, and if he can, he will join you on the trip to the Mountains.  If not, then you will go alone."

     Taeron bowed his head in response and replied,

     "Yes, ma'am that will be good."  Already, he could feel the pull to the mountains and he longed to go there sooner then tomorrow.  An idea formed in his mind, and he thought that, that night it would work.  Eragon would be happy to have a new student before next week, wouldn't he?

     Mersoth, why don't we fly out tonight?  We can get to Eragon before any other Rider, and we can be his first student.  This way we can surprise him, and we won't be slowed down by Colbert.  

Mersoth was firm in his answer,

     No, we will stay until Colbert and his dragon get's here.  Don't be selfish Taeron.

     Taeron was maddened by the fact that his dragon wouldn't obey him, and he took out that frustration.

     Mersoth, I am your Rider, and you will listen to me.  Tonight we will sneak away from here, and arrive at Eragon before anyone else.  You will not tell anyone, and you will listen to me.  Do you understand?

    I do not like this Taeron...  Mersoth warned against this idea yet again, but he knew that Taeron would not move from his idea.

     But fine, I will not stand in your way, as you pointed out, you are my rider, so I will follow you, but it is not my fault if we get caught.

     Okay, good, we will go tonight.
