Second Sun #116


"Whatever it is..."
The whispered words came from behind them. Without turning, Hevne said
"Indeed. Report, Darion?"
"No further tracks, Lord Hevne. This beast appears to be solitary," Darion stated. "Kill it and get back to camp?" he added.
Hevne stiffened.
"Perhaps," she said slowly.
Then she moved forward and slid the blade of her sword beneath the creature's middle. Darion and a tracker did the same at either end.
"Now," Hevne signed and the beast was rolled over with ease onto its front. Its legs staggered slightly, - then its body stretched out, lengthening to the span of three men.

    Let’s hope the creature can be made into an ally... somehow... or at the very least, a resource 🤞

    A resource? I wonder what they taste like?
