This was the one place Nickolas always seemed to be, other then his house. Yet, he was nowhere to be found. I knew someone else was here, but it wasn't Nickolas.
Suddenly, I noticed a child, running out with a tomahawk. I drew my bow, quick as a flash, but did not shoot. The child couldn't be more then 8 years old. Poor kid. But what was he doing here?
"Don't hurt me, sir," the child cried out. "I nephew of Nickolas the Hunter. He isn't here."
"His nephew," I asked. "And what, pray tell, are you doing at his personal bolt-hole?"
"Waiting for him, sir," the child said, shivering with fear."
I started to lower my bow. This Child was going to hurt anyone....suddenly, my senses came alive. I knew that smell. Mythronians!
I twirled around, bow drawn.
"What say you, Mythronian," I asked. "Give me a reason I shouldn't stick your head with this arrow."
"Calm yourself," he told me. "I am here to make a simple inquiry."
"Fine," I said, lowering my bow. "But first, I must know, what is your name?"
"Jacob, soldier of Mythron, seeking answers from Jonathan Gideon."
"I am he," I told him."What do you want?"
"Do you know the whereabouts of Edrid Torr?"
"No. Why do you wish to know?"
"Because he attacked our spy outpost."
I was shocked. I would as soon shoot this Mythronian as answer his questions, but if what he asid was true....
"Are you a part of my network then?"
"Yes, Jonathan. I know you hate Mythronians, but I think our countries are allies."
I was shocked. The Dragons allied with Mythron officially?
"Did Edrid attack personally?"
"No, but the soldiers who did left a noted signed by him."
"Come," I told the Mythronian. "I am going to hunt down and question Torr personally."

Outstanding creation! I like the water though the landscaping to use some work. BTW I'm going to do a creation where the fate of my character, Torr, is decided in Valdan. Can I use your character?
