You gotta listen to this, Mr. Book. It’s super awesome!
Breora dove underwater to get the sword. I stayed way back in case the evil thingamabob exploded. It was a good thing too, because it just ran right out of the water, being all fiery and stuff (stags are big, especially fiery demon stags). It took a while, but we started to wear it down since it was trying to kill all of the seela instead of us (mostly). It still hurt like hell, and to make things worse that evil devil guy that caused trouble with us before came back and tried to kill us while we were trying to kill the forest-fire-spirity-thing! That was not nice.
So, Indomitability finally died after I put enough arrows into it (all of them, in fact) and the others tried to cut and blast it into tiny pieces. I think it did anyways, but it exploded with some weird wavey thing that made my head hurt. I think it didn’t get me like the others, but I was kinda bleeding to death at the time from the devil. Rhakesh tore its throat out with his own sharp stick (and people call ME crazy).
All of the faeries were SO happy to not be on fire anymore and not have to keep singing anymore (even though that song is SO pretty; I can kinda hum it now. Still can’t say the words, though). Tiljann, that one faerie that helped us, wanted to come with us, and I was like ‘YEAH, let’s do it!‘. Everyone else thought it was okay too, so YAY we have a faerie! I wonder if she can let me borrow her wings. I wonder what it’s like to fly. Maybe it’s like falling, but with style.
Timbre also died. I didn’t want her to die, since she was really helpful and stuff, but Vynn said that Timbre was expecting it. It wasn’t so sad, since she was going to be with Anyariel now. How? They’re both dead; I don’t think she knows what she’s talking about. Something about an afterlife, but I’m pretty sure you only get the one life. Unless you cheat like Rhakesh.
Also, Rhakesh fainted. I think he was tired since he got angry (like he always does) when he was tearing the devil thing apart. But then he got back up and said something about ‘his queen’ being happy with him or other. The others said he looked… less gloomy and more alive. I don’t really see it; he looks like the same ol’ stick-in-the-mud to me.
Breora got bonded to the sword that she pulled out of the stag (whatever that means; I don’t see her tied up to it or anything). The others say she’s gotta live as long as she’s got that sword, or all of the forest and seela would die (since it’s part of the First Tree, which I guess is pretty important). Well, at least long enough so someone else can take the sword. I think. Either way, she’s pretty tough so I don’t think that’ll be a problem anytime soon. It looks a lot smaller than the greatsword they said Anyariel wielded, though. Maybe it shrunk when it was sitting in the lake all that time?
Torrent was worried (like usual) that the Ragesians would be hot on our tail since we kinda put out the forest fire (which is why we thought escaping this way was so smart… whoops).
Papu The old seela leader guy was nice enough to try to slow the Ragesians down with the rest of the village, since we ‘gave them a second chance at life’. Maelros got all teary-eyed and stuff for some reason when they said that. Maybe he likes the faeries too? Never woulda thought it, since he’s… y’know, half-demon-devil-man and stuff.
OH, and Shava came back! It was great to see her not so sad, even if she had sad news. I guess since all she wanted was to save the fire forest, she didn’t have any reason to keep traveling with us. Shava had to stay behind and help Nelle (the unicorn, way back at that waterfall) tend to all the elves, especially her dad. I was really sad to let her go, since she’s been my friend since I got to Gate Pass (even if I never got that three gold from her). I totally didn’t cry though. At least not in front of everyone.
Crystin said something weird while we were all talking and stuff. Vuhl (the evil faerie) wasn’t really a seela but something like Indomitability (a Trillith, whatever that is.) Deception would face us once again ‘when the bones of his grandmother watches and weeps for our fate’. Crystin sure knows how to kill a good mood.
After everyone got done being all smiley and happy from killing a demon-thing, we left as soon as we could to Seaquen and Lyceum! We still had to deliver the case (and Mr. Mustache’s weird puzzle cube thing for Dougan RamBossMan, and a note to that guilder Rantle’s fire-magey sister; can’t forget that. Thanks, Mr. Book!) so we got to walking!
Walking is boring. Even with all the new people like Vynny and Tiljann, it’s REALLY boring. At least Maelros and I made a bet to make things even more interesting when we find some evil stuff to kill.
I’ll write again when something cool happens again. Sit tight!
