7. Chapter 5

The moon was full that night, Alar sat alone looking at the dying fire in front of him. He lay down on his back with his hand under his head to have a good look at the starry sky and the full moon.

“Did I make a mistake by leaving Aldbridge?” A small sigh escaped him. Suddenly he heard a noise, he turned fast to the direction it came from, it was a wolf. He stood up, the wolf came running at him and jumped, Alar drew his sword very quickly and slayed the beast. The wolf fell and stopped moving.

 

In the morning, Amaya wake up, she saw Iryn next to her still sleeping, she went out the tent and suddenly screamed “Aaaah!” and stepped backward and fell down.

Iryn woke up very alarmed and came out the tend with her dagger in hand, she saw Amaya sitting in the ground, and a dead wolf in front of her.

”Tsk, it’s DEAD Amaya, can’t you see? You scared the hell out of me! I thought we’re under attack!”

”I .. I’m sorry, I was surprised to see a dead wolf first thing in the morning”

”I’m sure it came at night and Alar killed it”

”But why he put it in front of the tent? Shouldn’t he dispose of it after killing it?”

”Yeah, just one of Alar’s bad jokes”

”A joke?”

”Whatever, where is he by the way?” She said while dragging the dead wolf and throwing it away.

”I don’t know, when I came out he wasn’t here”

”There..” She left the wolf and went to wash her hands in the lake.”Well, let’s start packing, I’m sure he’s nearby...Aha, here he is” Alar came with some fresh fruits.

”Where have you been?” Iryn said while drying her hands in her clothes.

”Good morning to you too Iryn”

”Well, your joke was a bit too much don’t you think?”

Alar looked where he left the wolf’s body, then he looked at amaya:”It wasn’t a joke”

Iryn crossed her arms ”And what was that?”

Alar walked towards Amaya and stopped in front of her:”That was a small example of what we could be facing”

”You want to scare me, Sir Alar”

”I want to make sure you understand the danger, and that it’s not a game or a field trip. That’s all”

”I understood and knew from the start that ….”

Alar interrupted her:”No you didn’t”

”H..how. do you know?”

”I heard you scream when you saw a dead wolf, what would you do if it was alive, i wonder..”

Amaya looked down at her feet for a while, then she looked up at Alar with determination in her eyes:”I do now, I fully understand and I promise to not cause you troubles Sir Alar, I will be stronger and won’t be a burden”

Their eyes locked for a while. Alar sighed ”Good” and he started walking towards the tent but then he stopped, without turning back to her he said: ”And no need for formalities”

Amaya was caught off guard:”huh?”

”Call me just Alar, I’m not a knight...” and with a weak voice ”not anymore...”

”Can I also call you Alar?” said Iryn

He turned his head to her ”Why?”

”Well..um.. you see.. you are my father and all, but, we don’t look like father and daughter, I don’t look that younger than you..”

”But that doesn’t change that I am your father”

”No no, that’s not what I mean.. I mean we are on a quest, and we will be meeting lots of people, It will be a pain in the ass to explain things to them when they ask stupid questions, so...”

”Ok, I understand” he handed her the fruits ”When there is fresh food, we eat it, keep the dry food to when we can’t find anything”

”O..Ok”

”Then start packing, we should head to Janford’s port, we have to take the next boat to Orwyn”
