Magic #33

The group quickly gathered up the camp. "I'll take Master Tellerick. Barnabas, you take the boy." Kralla slid her paws gently under the sleeping mage, and lifted him easily into the air. Barnabas made a sling from a scarf, and picked up William, using the scarf as a support.

"Skaran, lead the way. You do know the way don't you?" Skaran nodded at Kralla.

"This way..." He turned, and headed deeper into the forest, an animal track at his feet.

The half-moon lit the ground with dappled shade. Silver eyed, they moved as quickly, and as silently, as possible.

    I love the way this particular episode ends, in the silent movement within the dappled shade, such a great image. And as if that isn't other-worldly enough, "silver eyed" makes it even more ethereal. Good stuff Jeff :)

    I agree with Drew, Jeff. I find it kind of reassuringly frightening, if that makes any sense.

    Thanks guys. Much appreciated. Apologies for the tardiness between drabbles, but stuff has been happening in real life.

    No worries, Jeff. Real life can be like that. Had a bit of real life myself but ma in law hangs on like a limpet.
