A Wish for Hope
Chapter Six

My Jelnaya asked, “Is she nice?”

Althery replied, “There is a difference in being nice and acting nice. Jelnaya can definitely have you wondering about her.”

I had to admit, “That is true, but I have always liked having her around. That is one reason I named you after her, Jelnaya. I wanted you to be someone people would be glad to have around.”

Chapter Five

The monarch looked to me as he asked, “Esgalia, what do you have to say about that?”

“I was transformed. I was a normal person. I don’t want any trouble, but I would like help to be restored.”

“So, you’re hoping Jelnaya can restore you?”

“She was the one that stopped the ones that changed us. We are hoping she can have us changed back.”

Chapter Four

What stopped me was seeing the fox people. Vulge I could understand. While I definitely wanted to speak to him, the fact that he came with fox people troubled me.

Not hearing my god speak, I strode forward feeling that one thing that happened the day before provided me with a direction to go while also explaining the arrival of someone I trusted. “All right, Vulge, you’re in charge!”

He replied, “I’m in charge? In charge of what?”

Chapter Three

Vulge asked, “Are they dangerous?”

I could not prevent myself from saying, “You just heard that there were more of us, many more, but they were slaughtered with some eaten in my presence. What does that tell you about us being dangerous?”

“Listen, we are talking about moving through the omniverse. There are things out there that could possibly slaughter and eat Prince Venicht’s father, and some will come as simple, weak beggars.”

Chapter One

I took the weapon while saying, “Don’t lose that one.”

“I understand its importance. You wanted a holy weapon. This one definitely has an origin from a source completely divine. You also wanted something to perform mass slaughter in tight conditions. Trust that Fergush understood the benefits of the drahaberd. Now, fight!”

A new Jelnaya tale.
A Wish for Hope
Chapter One

Returning Petty to Brullusk, he asked, “You want a loaner horse, Princess Jelnaya?”

“No,” I answered. “I think I will spend time hunting. It might not actually fall into the activity of fighting, but there are skills used in hunting that it would not hurt for me to work on.”

“Don’t get Fergush mad at you, Jelnaya.”

Chapter Thirty-One

“Yes, and we do not mean to be ungracious, but we feel that we have overcome your little reality.”

“And you want a prize?” This time it was Sterrig who made a sound of graciousness, and with the tentacles showing what I felt to be a shrug I heard Chanamich ask, “And what would you suggest the prize to be?”

“The gold. All of it.”

“What? I’m ready to go home.”

“Without the treasure?”

His shocked expression had me relax. While I did not doubt he had something on him, I could see that he understood to load himself with more before trying anything. Sterrig moving back to the stairs had me feel relief that there was still time to solve this challenge, although seeing the expression on Theria’a face had me realize that I would have help.

The Depth of the Mists
Chapter Twenty-Eight

Of course none of the gold removed was thrown away. We thus had an amount of wealth before stepping among a grand expanse of the metal. Rushing to get even more gold, men began to cry. A few needed to be restrained as they began to beat themselves, most with their hands with a few repeatedly sending their heads against one of the containers of the white crystals although a couple tried to inflict harm with their own weapons. Those of us with some degree of control over ourselves wondered what was going on even as we looked over the ground covered with gold.
