Naeja slowly nodded in understanding.
“We have guessed as much. Ever since Eragon had left the mountains we assumed what was going on out there can’t be good. Especially if the murmurs reach so far South. Regardless, you are here now and we will do everything in our power to protect you. I feel that the Armageddons are going to take some drastic measures to ensure that.”

“Care how you speak Naeja. Without the Armageddons, we would all be dead on multiple occasions.”
Thresh warned the female but not firmly. More just to remind that there is one in the post now.

Naeja smirked at Thresh.
“You need to loosen up. I don’t mean anything by it.”
She shifted her position and refocused her attention back to Valadir and Su’uther.
“How did you two meet. Was it by chance?”

After a little bit more of conversation, a young green drake walked into the room. He bowed and waited to be acknowledged. He wore armour with fabric over the top of the chest place indicating that he is a messenger.



“It reflected gold light when the sun hit it. I could tell it isn’t completely covered in gold though. Just the buildings that protruded out of it. It looked really rich.”

Crystal looked down to one of the corridors to have a peek. Definitely is clean.
She smirked at Wolnir’s comment.
“Yes. I could be very useful here. I feel like I will be in here a lot in the future.”
She peered into one of the rooms. It looked like your typical practitioner room . Couple seats. Medical equipment but no one is in it.

“Broke your wing. Well, that seems natural since you were learning to fly. I’ll tell you a story.”

She walked back to Wolnir, looking at his wing.

“About seven hundred years ago I had two of my tails cut off from a bunch of nomads in the desert while I was conscious. They captured me and just snipped them off. Tried to make potions out of them. Although they were completely unaware of what I was capable of. Long story short I killed them and painfully regenerated my tails. With magic of cause. Kitsunes can’t do it naturally.”

She put a hand on his shoulder.
“I thi-“

Her eyes widened and her mouth dropped. She looked at Wolnir. Dumbstruck.
“Were you ever told about the monsters invading our land?”
“War is death to the old and birth to the new.”

Valadir was going to add his opinion on the matter, but couldn't since a brief conversation amongst the drakes took place. During the brief meantime, he wondered how much the drakes knew about what happened, or how accurate their guesses were. Nontheless, he did hope they would put extra effort in his protection. After all he went through, his mind yearned to feel that true sense of security during a good while.

"I... guess you could say that..." The dragon then replied to the quartermaster's question, glancing briefly at Su'uther before continuing, "Saw him on one of the hallways doing his job. I wanted to help him, but as he deemed himself unworthy of it, i decided to stick around and give him a bit o' talk and company. Besides, he's been kind enough to show me around a bit..."


Wolnir smiled when he heard Crys' brief description of the exterior of the mountain. It sounded good. He couldn't help but to briefly wonder about how it looked on the inside. He thought that it had to look either as pretty as on the outside or better.

When he was told that breaking his wing was normal when he was learning how to fly, the dragon felt less ashamed of it. It wasn't the first time he was told so, but even then, he didn't like to talk about it. It was a painful memory that he thought he could have avoided if had been more careful.

When Crys told him the story, Wolnir thought it had been very cruel. In a way, it showed how skilled he was and he could guess why she wanted to tell it. He thought he was lucky that the humans didn't capture him. What came after, however, caught him off guard. The question made him feel uneasy and even unsafe.

"W-what monsters? A-aren't we s-safe a-anymore!?"

"Su'uther most certainly has the optimism to make friends where ever he goes. It has also gotten him into trouble on multiple occasions..."
Naeja glared at the young hunter. In response, Su'uther looked down a little ashamed.
"Discipline is something that he still needs to learn. I will give it to him, he has a gifted mind full of ideas. If only he could use it more wisely."

Eventually, he lifted his head and met his quartermaster's eyes. If he thought of challenging her, he didn't show it. His eyes did, however, show her compliment. Many thoughts run behind them.

It was Thresh who acknowledged to the messenger to stop the slightly awkward moment.
He made a gesture with his hand to indicate the messenger to come forward.
"What do you have for us."

The small bottle green sky drake stepped forward and bowed to everyone.
"King Eragon requests Valadir in the armoury for his surprise."

Thresh smiled when the messenger spoke. It is ready.
"Very good. Escort Valadir down."

The messenger bowed and waited for Valadir at the doorway.

Before Valadir left, Thresh said to him, "Unbroken, don't hug Eragon."


Crystal just started at Wolnir on moving for a solid ten seconds. She took her hand off him and bunched her tails together as if to make it look like she had one big giant tail.
"Oh no-no. We are quite safe within the mountains but... Shit, can't believe I haven't told you."

Before she could continue a messenger approached them and bowed.
Crystal snapped her neck at the messenger, feeling a bit defensive she widened her stance as if to expect an attack.
The messenger looked back up and greeted them.
"Brightscaled, Crystal. King Eragon requests your presence in the armoury."

Crystal released the breath she was holding.
"Ok thank you. Can you please take us there."

The messenger bowed again and lead them to the armoury.

Crystal continued, "I will not hold anything from you as you need to know this. It explains why dragons have been hunted so eagerly. Before I met Eragon and Valadir, I was on my investigation. Trying to figure out why dragons have been so hated and what I found is devasting and has been confirmed by others of my kind. There are these unnatural creatures from far West. We believe they are behind all the attacks. In some beings, they have placed a parasite in them that controls the individual and that parasite telepathically controls others around it. At the moment we cannot detect them but we will find a way. We have estimated this has been going on about sixty to one hundred years. They slowly wormed their way in. How they got here we don't know. I have seen a few myself but have never gotten the chance to learn anything from it.

As far as I'm concerned only dwarfs humans and elves have been affected by them and we are not if it is everyone. We don't know why they are targeting dragons. We think that you have something they are afraid of and they want to get rid of it. Maybe the drakes as well.

What is for certain is that drakes have not been affected and the mountains have not been compramised nor do we think they will. They have had at least sixty years to make a move and they haven't which adds to the idea that they are scared of something. For now, we are safe here.

I might add that some very special stuff is going to happen to Valadir."

As they walked and talked, the messenger brought them to the armoury. There they found Eragon waiting at the entrance with his arms folded and with his iconic serious face.

Valadir listened attently to the quartermaster's words, glacing at Su'uther for a moment as she spoke. It talked heaps about him. The dragon thought that with the proper amount of effort, that guy could be a really good member of the military. Or even an inventor, if he really had that creative mind.

The quadruped was thinking about how cute the young drake looked in his ashamed state when the messenger stepped forward. He announced that Valadir's surprise was ready. He got visibly excited and happy when he heard the news. He thought it was odd they referred to him by name, but he didn't ponder on it for more than one second.

"But you just gave me the idea!", he replied in a jokingly tone to Tresh's warning, even if there was a little bit of truth in his own words. Before leaving, however, he went to Su'uther and wispered him some encouragement.

"From where i come from, we consider that making friends make you stronger. And keep feeding that imagination of yours, i wouldn't be surprised if you end up creating some neat stuff. Good luck and fly high, hunter" The dragon patted him once in the back and headed to the doorway to be guided to the armory. He was still smiling. While on the way, he tried to guess what the surprise was. Maybe it was a replacement for the sword.

He had arrived first to the armory's doors. Of course, they were closed but Eragon was waiting outside.
"It's finally time!", Valadir had said with enthusiasm.


Wolnir allowed himself to calm down when Crys told him that they were still safe. After all, she hadn't given him any reason to not trust her. His expression seemed to light up a bit when the messenger told that his surprise was ready. However, he didn't got the oportunity to think about it for long since Crys then started to tell him the reason about the sudden killing of his kind. He hadn't really thought about it's cause, but now he wanted to know.

He found the information somewhat hard to process. It was shocking, even if it sounded like a conspiracy, but even then, he believed it. So some intelligent parasites controlled almost everyone from the shadows in order to extinguish them out of jealousy, while giving them a safe place? He didn't know what to think, really. The dragon hoped that she could find the cause.

With a change of subject, the orange dragon was told that his friend was going to have some special stuff happening to him.
"D-don't tell me what it is g-going to bbe exactly, b-but is it g-going to be a good thing?"

When he saw Val and Eragon waiting for them, he smiled. It was time.

"Whole party's here!", Val had added jokingly.
