“But heed my words closely, exalted one,” the stranger spoke, an ominous shadow falling over his eyes. His voice had taken on a serious tone and everything around them seemed to mirror his demeanor, the wind dwindled to a wispy afterthought and his equine companion had become as still as the Caretakers statue.
“The Elders do not entrust this gift lightly, and you would be wise to weigh your choices carefully.”
She looked up from her fingertips into the depths of the visitors gaze.
“Your bestowal, and the fire from which it emanates, are simply a tapestry of affairs used by the Elders to bring forth harmony. Come and behold what you have wrought.”
With little prudence or conscious will, she moved to take her place beside the outlander.

Intriguing, my friend. And what of her place beside the outlander. What shall transpire….Well done, good sir and fulfilling writing to you.
Setting up a good plot twist? Interesting addition.
mmmmm, whither will this goest I wonder …
Excellent and intriguing.
DL, the tension you introduced was well wrought. I’m a little scared, now. 🙂
oooh, tension! Up to now it has been very positive and ethereal in a certain way. I like the darker leaning.
