Second Sun #100

by

As Triu and Jibrith made ready for the journey into conflict, a small argument took the minds of both men off the future. It went:
"Jibrith, you are too old for battle."
"And you, boy, are too young. Yet you go."
"I have proved myself. And as I age, I improve further. Your reflexes in battle shall decline as you age."
"I am not taking my reflexes, Triu, I am taking my experience."
Rallumi interrupted: "Tis well he accompanies you, Lord Triu."
A sigh. "Very well. Accompany me, Jibrith!"
"A wise decision, Lord Triu."
"Be silent, Jibrith."
"Yes, Lord Triu."

    This is an amazing world you've created out of thin air, Drew. A rich tapestry of colorful characters and wonderful dialogue, not to mention the tensions of war and whatever else is facing Kamkarra. Well done.

    It is indeed rich in both characters and dialogue as Christopher says. I love the interplay between the characters, particularly Jibrith and Triu, but all the others too. (Hope Jibrith makes it, but I’m bit afeared for him 🙁

    Me too. I hope Jibrith makes it. We don’t know how old he is though but younger men die in battle. He is wise and experienced, a kind of Gandalf or Dumbledore in Kambarra but without a wizard’s staff.
