Episode 7: Prisoner

Darkwind Keep, Dungeons…

GAVIN TAVISCHOLM sits in a cell on the southern side of the dungeons below Darkwind Keep. The window on the wall just beyond his cell faces the lands of the Frost Giants. The sun, lowering over the Davor Mountains sends a shadow through the bars of his cell over his body. Stripped of his crown, his armor, and his dignity, Gavin was put into an orange jumpsuit with metal bracers around each wrist. Instead of his normal war boots, Gavin now wears flat bottomed, soft soled shoes. He sets his head into his hands and sweat drip from his long string silver hair and brow.

“My men turned on me,” Gavin mutters to himself. “and now I am trapped in this hell hole.”

“Ach, me boyo, do ye not remember ye teachings,” a spirit says with a Scottish-like accent.

“Master, Master Sheratin?”

“Ach, ye actually remember me.”

“I have no key.”

“Boyo, ye’ve lived on this rock too long. Ye have the power to get out on ye own. Ye need no key. Look within.”

Then, the spirit of Gavin’s former master disappears. A determination, a resolves swells to the surface within Gavin.

“He’s right! Time to leave!”

“Your what?!?” both Recon and Cardinale say to Tech.

“You heard me right,” Tech emphatically replies to them. “But right now, I need to know the status of my team.”

“Well, that may be a problem,” Cardinale says to Tech.

“What do you mean?”

“We don’t know exactly where everyone is. Just who survived the last battle for system freedom.”

“I know a way,” Tech says. “But it’s kinda of tricky.”

“How?”

“Plug me into the computer.” Tech says to Recon and Cardinale.

“Um, where?” Recon asks.

“Through the port on my back.”

Recon goes around to the back of Tech Radius with a connection cable extending from the computer terminal. She is puzzled when looking around Tech’s backside and cannot find the terminal port.

“Where on your back, did you say?”

“Lower portion of my back in the middle. In between the sabres on the action extension. Shove it up between them.”

Recon does as instructed and Tech jerks a little.

“Right there?” she asks.

“Yeah,” he twinges. “That’s the spot.”

Tech, then walks over to the computer terminal and types in an older programming code to send an encoded message out to all System Retrieval members. He received pingbacks from every one of the team.

“Unplug me.”

Quickly, Recon yanks out the cable.

“Yeeahhh!” Tech spurts out. “A little more gently next time.”

“Sorry,” Recon replies with a finger to her lips to portray her innocense.

Reworking of novels

Currently I am reworking my stories into their novella format.

I will make sure they are available for as many readers or devices as possible. Furthermore, you will even have the opportunity to buy them in print if you so desire.

I appreciate those who have followed this site and hope that you continue to do so. I will post information on the site on a regular basis.

Every Friday I will try to bring you a back-up story that goes along with the novella series that I am working on. This back-up story is integral to the characters involved but not the overall story of the series.

Come back and join us in this new endeavor.

Episode 6: Starragaar Awakens

Rillon Cottage, Days Later…

STARRAGAAR AWAKENS in the strange bedroom. She clutches her head as she is still in a lot of pain. At first, her vision is blurry. Everything in the strange bedroom is fuzzy. Then, after a few moments, Starragaar’s sight starts to become clearer. At her feet sleeps Sebasti. She screams when she sees the brawker. Sebasti jumps as Vanolin, Tara, and Janeeri enter the room.

“This has got to be a dream or I’m in hell,” Starragaar mutters trying to clear her head and focus on where she is.

“Neither, love,” Janeeri says softly to her. “You crash landed here about a week ago, Starragaar.”

I lost a week?!? She though to herself.

“Your voice,” she says looking up at Janeeri as Sebasti jumps back up on the bed at her feet. “It’s soothing and familiar. You took care of me?”

“That I did.”

“And this is?” she asks as Sebasti comes closer to Starragaar.

“This be Sebasti, my brawker.”

“Brawker?”

“Well, canus doi-tailius, actually. Brawker, for short.” Janeeri replies.

“Someone I know well was here, too. I remember hearing his voice. I believe that he told you my name.” Starragaar says sitting up and petting Sebasti on the top of his head. Sebasti’s two tails wag wildly.

“Ah, that Gavin did, love,” Janeeri tells her. “My name is Janeeri; this is my brother Vanolin, and our friend Tara.”

“So Gavin’s here? Where?”

“Prisoner at Darkwind Keep,” Vanolin states. “I was sent to get help.”

“I believe that I can help,” Starragaar says, then, looks under the covers at herself. “But, um, let me get dressed first.”

Tara, then, turns on the Rillon brothers and shoves them out of the room. “Out with you two. I will help her. It’s a girl thing.”
