A Wish for Hope
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.”

To Face the Ugly Deed
Chapter Thirty-Four

I did look to Makinor, although had to accept that as the one telling the story I was the one up. I pulled from a pocket an icon of Fergush, and breathed upon it the words of honor having been gained. Giving the lady the gold item showing red and yellow bands, I accepted the basket stating my thanks, although I then added something personal.

“You take care of Nebard. He proved himself. He’s worth every trial he puts you through.”

She nodded while saying, “I believe I will never regret making certain promises to him. Nebard told me to wish you the best in finding loves of your own.”

Chapter Thirty-Three

It was disconcerting to hear Makinor scream in pain before yelling out the name of our lady, although I felt her words were the only things needed to be said. “Just fight, Makinor!”

“How do you fight this thing?”

“How are you fighting it, Makinor? Just keep doing what you are doing.”

There were a number of sounds from the man. I made out grunting, and I believe a scream of actually feeling pain. I then heard him again scream out the name of the lady.

The sounds of the other man approaching could be heard with his voice letting it be known that he had heard. “You already warned me, Jelnaya. I’m ready.”

Makinor said, “Wait. You’re going after the demons?”

I said, “Yes, Makinor. That is the source of the evil.”

“You mean into Hell?”

Chapter Thirty-One

“If you have a degree of experience, I will respect that. Someone has to be able to understand their faults to see what I show them. There are a number however that believe fighting is just taking a weapon in their hands and using it.”

“Some believe love is smooching, cuddling, and reading poetry.”

I saw her ready her drahaberd as she replied, “The one who loves me will not believe that. All three sound nice, but they are not what is going to be required to love me.”

“That I can believe.”

Chapter Thirty

Makinor pulled me out of my thoughts by saying, “We were advised not to get the taint of Hell upon us, Jelnaya.”

I kept walking as I replied, “Do you believe Fergush is going to allow any taint on me? You already noted that there were no scars on my body.”

He moved up to walk beside me while commenting, “I actually believed you of Fergush would go around bragging on your scars.”

Chapter Twenty-Eight

“Quafrey is not speaking of having me travel to other worlds, but of just needing these experiences to help in dealing with the variety of deities and individuals on my world.”

“Are my lectures helping you?”


Her eyes went back to her armor after saying, “You’re welcome.” She continued to work while letting me know, “Now, we are really going to need to fight. It could get deadly, and I definitely expect it to get scary. Get something to eat. Makinor cooked it.”

Chapter Twenty-Eight

Makinor replied, “That is actually a good philosophy, Jelnaya. I however don’t see how it applies here. We fight this.”

“Why?” I glared at Makinor for a moment, but seeing him just look back I went ahead and explained myself. “You’re here. You are a champion of a goddess of love. Why aren’t you seeing love apply? You should definitely be looking at me and thinking that I am focusing on the fight.”

“Honestly, Jelnaya, I am looking at you and thinking what a fine looking lady you are.”
