Magic #103

by

Kralla looked up from her sword, the whetstone halfway along its length. "Why are you huffing and puffing Fox?"

Barnabas took a moment to catch his breath.

"The abbot has sent a message to the dragon slayer guild about Amethyst."

Skaran's head snapped round. "He what!?"

Barnabas looked around, confused. "Where is master Tellerick and William?"

Kralla's whetstone slished the rest of the way down the shining blade, making it ring. "He went on ahead to take the boy home. The only people who know he's the augury are us and the dragon. Security in obscurity master Tellerick called it."

    "Security in obscurity" is sound advice to everyone who posts their entire life on social media.

    (Second paragraph, should that read "Barnabas took"?)

    You're welcome. I always appreciate when someone does it for me. I try to proofread very carefully and still miss things.
