btw, this is my NaNoWriMo story so criticism is much appreciated! Thanks :)


27. Act 26

I looked over at Ida’s brother. His eyes were reddened from crying and his face was worn from exhaustion. But beyond the sorrow, deep within them was a strong resolve to carry on. His haunting gaze pierced me, causing a chill to run down my back. Did he blame me for Ida’s death? I knew that he should, but I did not know if I had the strength to withstand the words. Instead, to my visible relief, he introduced himself.

“Your majesty, my name is Caiden Craise, Ida’s brother.” He said with a stiff bow. I felt weird receiving formalities again. Even though it had only been two days, my court life felt like it was ages ago. “It is imperative that we regroup with the councilmen and come up with a plan of action.” I nodded in agreement, signifying he should continue. “They would have gone to the hidden caverns, near the forbidden zone.”

I ponder that for a moment. It made perfect sense for them to go towards the forbidden zone since the soldiers would be too superstitious to follow them. But more importantly, the forbidden zone was the place rumored to be the land where magicians were banished to in ancient times. No one has dared to go into the area, in fear that they will never return. Hiding near there would be safe, as long as they did not venture past the boundary.

I glanced back at Logan, wondering if he had lived in the forbidden zone once. That would be a question for another time though. Right now we had to make haste to the councilmen.

“Let’s be off then, we have no time to lose.” I said. Caiden nodded in response. I pulled away from Logan, his arms slid off me with no resistance, and brushed myself off before looking back at Caiden. “Lead the way.”
