To Face the Ugly Deed
Chapter Fifteen

I saw my wife smile. The expression made me feel really good. I believe the smile on Jelnaya’s face indicated she caught our expressions, although her words were not to embarrass us.

“Well, good. Listen, you tell Quafrey that I appreciate the freedom she is giving me in doing this job. I feel it is going to get bad, really bad, and I don’t need some smothering goddess limiting my options.”

Eashae asked, “Really bad?”

I quickly moved to a deeper part of the pond hearing footsteps, and was glad that I did hearing a girl’s voice say, “Jelnaya! We could have provided you with a warm bath.”

A lad spun making an exclamation of embarrassment. I knew both the kids, and wondered about their life together. I was clearly concealed by the liquid, but whatever I had the young lady, named Kairsy, surely was allowing the young man, named Priven, to see. I felt a need to just tell the couple to go back home, but the girl made it known that she would not be embarrassed by the way she found me.

“Jelnaya, we can give you a good bath and a warm bed.”

Chapter Fourteen

In a very serious manner, Albroth admitted, “No. I am not human. If you would have checked, your wives were not human either.”

I heard the voice of a lady say, “Don’t let him fool you, Nebard. They did things to us to improve our appearance, but we were human. Jelnaya said nothing about finding us, our souls, different than what she saw of us.”

“Now that I think about it, she’s right, but you just got lucky. Could have been a skunk lady that I put in the body of your wife.”

Chapter Thirteen

Eashae said, “You are following the right path, Nebard. I promised you everything, and I am seeing nothing to have me regret that decision. I will always love you and your children.”

The voice of Nebard broke as he replied, “This is hard, Eashae.”

“No, Nebard, but it is necessary. I cannot say that I am good with animals, but I will learn to do what I can while you do what you must. It might be hard doing what Quafrey commands, what I desire, what our children will demand, and what the animals must have done for them, but I will help all I can. I understand that it will be necessary.”

Chapter Twelve

It was my mother who said, “Felther? Oh, Felther, they took your soul, didn’t they?” I saw Lord Felther just quiver, then my mother asked, “Honored Jelnaya, could you look into Felther’s eyes and rescue him?”

She replied, “He gave up his willingly. I don’t know if I could. Nebard, what does Quafrey say about it?”

The female voice inside my head told me that I needed to see. Quafrey explained that I needed to have a relationship with her like Jelnaya had with He-Who-Fights. I had no idea how to do that. Not hearing any directions from the voice inside my head, I looked to the one that had asked me the question.

Chapter Eleven

“What can be worse?”

I stepped up to the man so he could hear me even with me hissing my words, “Think, Makinor. Think about what I said. We are divine champions. Our souls are not ours. Now, think about those in Nebard’s town. Other than Nebard, they are not divine champions. Their souls are not secure. They can be pulled into Hell with no recourse to their fates. There can be innocent people in Hell.”

Chapter Nine

“Your family makes siege engines?”

“No, Makinor. If Onathia wants you to get deadly, have her send you to me for a week. I will show you deadly. I will have you meet my father and listen to him brag on the kill power of what his company produces. Might let you meet my Grandfather Terish as well.”

His glance to me had me suspect another question, but he instead said, “After this mission I will see if Onathia will reveal more of her path for me, Jelnaya. In a proper arrangement of things, I believe She-Who-Loves will again simply have a champion of He-Who-Fights join me should things truly have a possibility of getting deadly.”

Chapter Six

Priven did speak to his mother. I found out when my mother brought him and his mother to my barn. I was worried about a mother goat that I felt was carrying triplets. When I mentioned the situation to the others, Priven’s mother spoke a reply.

“You are being blessed, Nebard. However, just like your mother goat is going to have difficulties, your blessing will come with troubles as well. I am telling Priven, and now telling you, to see them through.”

Chapter Twenty-Nine
Nagging Problems

The next morning I felt that Lasotherral had listened to my advice and not Chamorrick. She was the one that had a pleasant attitude. My half-brother was not negative, but I gained the impression that he had been up late attempting to solve certain problems by himself. Considering the challenge he had set before him, I could not fault him, but as one providing what had been shown to be good advice I felt he should have had some comfort in my instructions.
