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.”
“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.”
