Chapter Thirty-Three: The Situation Develops

...
“Ah, no. Your Goddess is accepting our guidance, but her words clearly indicate that she is not one that prefers conflict. I am not saying that you should not practice with it, but that – as in the case with that monster – you can win the battles without a need for major combat skills. Keep your focus on the religious and historic matters. Save combat practice for other times.”

“Well, ah,” I could not think of another topic, but simply remembered that I had not done something I considered important, “thank you.”

He let me hug him before saying, “You’re welcome. Still, Neselle, you should know that my primary mission is to learn. I am learning a lot by watching you. I thus have to thank you and your Goddess for allowing me to be part of this mission. I’m here for you, Neselle, but let me say that I am quite proud of what you are accomplishing.”


Whatever she might be accomplishing, her work is not finished.

Chapter Thirty-Two: Facing the Pig-Dragon

...
“Neselle, a most darling girl that has come into my life, I call upon Remidda to bless you. May you have the wisdom to see that which others seek to hide from you. May you have the strength to stand up to those that seek to overcome you. May you have the fortitude to prove your power even through hard times.”

I looked to the mountain, then said, “And please have her let me use her sword.”

Baroness Dirchein moved her head back to look at me as she asked, “Her sword?”

“In my dream – in the first one on the operating table, she gave me a sword when I was told not to be found unarmed. I now carry a sword, as I don’t let myself be found unarmed, but I don’t think the sword that I have will hurt a dragon.”


Defiance is sometimes the best response to a threat.

Chapter Thirty-One: Pool of Blood

...
“Lady Neselle,” Elbery’s voice lost some of its usual quality as he stressed my name, “please keep yourself safe. The military are on their way.”

“This corral has already proven that it is not safe. We are going to have to do something, Elbery. All I will promise is that we won’t be stupid.”

After wishing each other the best, Alaner closed the connection with us both turning as Terish said, “Those words of us needing to do something were good.”

I replied, “Honestly, though, I am surprised that the pigs did not shoot.”

Hanell said, “We have guns as well, Lady Neselle. We would have shot back.”


Sometimes the necessary decisions are not the easy ones to make.

Chapter Thirty: The Prejudice of Cows

...
A female wolf responded with, “I just need to pee.”

The bull appeared exasperated as he spewed out, “That’s no reason…”

I blurted out, “Why do we need reasons? We are here, and – well, we are here.”

“Listen, we don’t want insurgents.”

Another male wolf, one of the older ones, asked, “Insurgent? What’s that?”

Althery stepped up behind me while answering, “It means ‘not cow,’ doesn’t it?”


Prejudice really is not a crime, but its shame is that it is often the motivation for worse than crimes.

Chapter Twenty-Nine: Possible Horrors of the Unknown

...
“But that would mean that we have some of your people working with the dragon. Yes. Still, the evidence of that was apparent at the wreck site two days ago.”

From the back of Nathan I could see what Dame Straekin had pointed out. I moved out a ways and saw the tracks of cows. For the sake of those not wanting to think bad of other people, I tried to put the facts that I saw in some perspective.

“There were those that dealt with Berbishet regularly, and they did not work against his manipulations. They claim to have been duped, and I have not spoken against them. I hope that these will also be able to provide some excuse for their actions.”

The male wolf did not back down. “No. This is murder. Those that helped are accessories to murder. We are not animals.”


It is hard to condemn those who did evil with being evil.

Chapter Twenty-Eight: Perspectives on Growing Up

...
“I’m glad that you got rest, because I really am glad to have you with us.” I took a bite of food, but gulped it down having something else to say. “I really don’t know what is coming, so feel it is best to have the options you provide.”

“Listen, Neselle, there are two possibilities here. You are without the ancient sources. Your Goddess could be wanting you to revive them, but your immortality speaks against that. What could be happening is that She is going to let you guide Her. She might be hoping that you will guide Her.”

I had started to take another bite, but dropped my food to blurt out, “That can’t be right. I’m to make mistakes.”


And Neselle learns that the cause of her mistakes might come from her own lack of understanding.

Chapter Twenty-Seven: Facing Dragons and Eternity

...
I saw Lord Terish move off. I then felt Baroness Dirchein hug me even as I reached down to pet some wolves. I was about to go hug and possibly kiss each of the young men when I saw Alaner move off. I moved just enough to hear what she said, then stepped closer to assure that I did not miss anything.

“Elbery, I will be sending you a report. You can decide not to run it; I have no way to force you. Still, I will be sending it to you to be shown.”

Alaner lifted her eyes with her face showing shock in knowing that I had overheard, but I spoke to calm her. “It’s okay. The people should know. This is not Sennapre or Davelda, but our world. What happens on our world should be reported to the people of our world. They need to know the truth of their world.”


Neselle finds herself attempting to gain some control of her situation.

Chapter Twenty-Six: A Desire for Wisdom

...
“Okay, so what do you suggest that we do?”

A feeling that I did not know washed over me. Instead of giving in to despair, I considered how I could learn of options. Lord Terish was usually a good source of information, but he had come to me. Wondering what I could tell him, I realized that there were possibly ways to learn things.

“Alaner, do you have a phone?”

As she went to get it, I asked Hanell how to call those of her den. After checking that we had a signal, I put a call through to my home town. When someone of Hanell’s den answered, I begin asking for advice.


Neselle continues to need to assert her authority even as she faces things for the first time.

Chapter Twenty-Five: Past and Future Tragedy

...
“I will bet you, oh, supper tomorrow. I win, and you hunt down some rabbits, squirrels, or whatever for supper. You win and I will do the hunting.”

“What’s the bet?”

“That they deny having seen the wreck. They will tell you about something else that supposedly had their attention.”

Hanell said, “I would agree with Lord Terish, but I am interested in hearing that for myself. Thus, take the bet, Brotin. If it goes like Lord Terish and I suspect, I will help you do the hunting.”


Risks must be taken in order to find answers.

Chapter Twenty-Four: Attack of Those Who Should Lead

...
The one that mocked me asked, “You were told to fight last night?”

“Last night I was attacked.”

“Rezoro fell on your bed.”

I was mystified, but understanding that I was before a camera I worked to stay calm. “Just minding his own business he fell on my bed, which was in my room, which was in my suite, which was in this very mansion, which is away from town, which is…”

“Yes, yes, we get the point. The point however is that you did attack him.”


Sometimes the threats are from those who should promote peace.
