R-R 3 Living Wars Chapter 10
Chapter 10
I woke feeling suffocated. Everything was dark, and I realized I was covered on all sides. Beside me lay the kiceko, his sleeping bag keeping us close. In tattered, and now wrinkled clothing, I crawled from the bag, looking around to see us surrounded by the others. At this time of morning, most of the camp lay atop their bags as the sun turned to began heating the land. The kiceko yawned. Sitting up, he brought one hand to his mouth, taking a mouthful of water before laying back down. In the light I noticed the row of studs trailing from his temples and vanishing behind his ears on either side of his head.
“Sleep, bug, you’ll need it for our trip.” He had those gold eyes sleepily focused on me. “All the water you can drink, but little food.”
“I’m not going with you. I’ll be looking for some kiceko I was with, we were separated in the sandstorm.”
He was frowning now. “We are going to town, bug. If they survived, the

Marna sat obscenely close, refusing to stray even a foot away. In the rain kiceko were sharpening their weapons, honing their skills. Pree was held up in her conference room. Or something of the sort.  I looked to where the main building was. Last night, I had asked Pree for a ‘bit of her past’. The story didn’t make me feel for her. A life well enough privileged and spoiled. Her foremost reason for doing what she was, was because in her eyes she was rightfully meant to be a Queen and regain the power that had been denied her ancestor. The whole idea of one kiceko conquering six planets sounded insane, but by no means was Pree a mad woman. And her following could well take up a third of a planet in itself. What to do? There was still a war within me, distracting my mind from the matter at hand, trying to decide what was more important. No - trying to decide between whether or not going to Ray was more important than finding Curston right away. Sora pull

The craves was shadowed as the sun’s forgetful rays missed it. The sky was clear and bright blue, though further away than I liked. So far seen, no large animals lived in the gully. But to compensate, the cliff face swelled with birds’ nests. The ground teaming with insect life, all wary of the flying creatures that ate them. I gazed up the precipices having to cope with the fact that I would not be able to climb it. My right shoulder was sore from being dislodged from its place when I hit the water. At least I had been able to fix that. But what was I going to do? Not admit I was stuck down here so long as I was alive and able to find Curston, no, that was for sure. Could I get out though? The gully stretched some way before curving out of sight. I shuddered - shaken, waterlogged, jetlagged - wondering  what  waited around that bend. One way to find out. As deep as the craves was, protected from harsh winds and storms by the crags, it still collected qu

Garay stood with the head of the guard. Already the group had trucked far from the city before stopping to rest. The sun beat down hot, contrasting the cool rain that watered the sparse trees. Less than half the guard stood watch patrolling the close area. Fiona’s replacement stayed in her place beside me. Even when I shifted she was there to move closer. Wind blew the thick clouds before the sun, gray and darkening the land. Everyone looked up. Just as the kiceko set the castle blaze, controlling its movements from where ever they were, the group feared the enemy of a strong attack in the open. Without weapons. There was a scout in the air, obscured by the clouded sky. Our camps’ fire were kept low. Piles of dry wood and kindling burned in a shallow pit dug into the ground. And for the days spent in the one clearing, food was anything that could be hunted. If the group was miserable they did well not showing it. Every morning Garay took his battle heads aside to

The following morning, Adam strolled into the king’s chambers as though the whole castle hadn’t just been looking for him. He ushered his brother into the adjoined meeting room where they failed to close the door completely. I sat on the couch, having a unsurprisingly easy time not caring what they were doing. I was feeling relaxed, as Ray said I would, but beneath that swelled something else. An emotion that had not been use to taking a backseat in the past few months. And it was building, bubbling ready and more than eager to make me remember it.  Something like panic, worry, horror…. I let out a yell. Ray’s head poked from the door. Fiona, who had taken up her position as my guard again, looked down at me. Garay’s expression mirrored hers of confusion.
“I need to leave.”
Ray stepped from the meeting room. “Mayla-”
“I’m here.” I yelled. “I came like I promised, but now I have to find Curston.

The room was kept cold so anyone in it instantly felt sluggish. The windows had frosted and puffs of breath could barely be seen. The temperature matched my mood. Across the table sat another human. Say had placed the trembling girl on the table, assuring me that no harm would come to her. The decoy looked hardly like me, but she was as young as I and her skin and hair just as dark. As she huddled against the cage bars, I bluntly told the kings how sick they were. They were attempting to instruct the girl on what her roll was - stay quiet and do as they say, but as a human born around the Saroon she was bound to do so anyway. Garay never spoke to the other human, never looked at her. It appeared that, to him, she did not exist. I, myself, paid her little mind being too busy brooding over such a fail. But I was also rethinking my strategy.
“They are leaving.” Say approached the table side to collect the girl. “Are you not going to wish her good luck?”

In the many lights that the seaside town provided I was able to get a good look at Fiona. She was pretty, young, maybe a year younger than me if not a year older. Deep brown eyes. Matching hair pulled into a tight bun so it wouldn’t get in her way during a fight. She wore light armor under heavy clothing. A broad sword at her hip. Like a prom queen after sword practice. Fiona constantly shot me glances, as if trying to interpret what I was through the looks. It didn’t bother me as long as we kept moving. She continuously tried to arouse conversation with Garay - who normally failed to respond - and had trouble remembering not to use his title out in the open.
Garay kept his paces brisk, his hood up. Not once did he have to slow for the convenience of his guard. In fact, she had to stop on occasion to wait for us. That seemed to aggravate Garay more than the girl being with us in the first place. He raced pass folks of Kiren’s Northern capital. No one paid hi

The feeling of dizziness faded and I ran from the shed. Say was right behind me. It was easy for him, walking at a semi brisk pace, to keep up with my run. Passing kiceko gazed wondrously at us. I found the dirt path on the main road and darted in the direction I assumed the castle was in. Say intervened, lifting me from the ground and going in the opposite direction. He continued his brisk pace along the path in spite of me requesting him to go faster. We passed the B &B’s, the little shops, and houses that lead to the town. The ocean swayed calmly, boats sitting still atop the water. The salty air blew lazily over the area. Kiceko stopped minding their business to bow and greet the king who returned the gestures quickly and went on his way. We reached the area where the shore gave way to the town and soon entered the town itself.
Say pulled into a small diner, making me only just suppress a scream.

I stood in the hospital hall surrounded by my family. Koty’s hand was gripping mine like a vice. A nurse stood before us looking forlorn and unhappy with the news she had to deliver. My mother gasped as the nurse asked me to go alone into the room.
Trucker lay in the bed. His eyes tightly shut. Next to the bed, a machine was monitoring his heart. Every so often there was a short flat in the line. Duke Madson leaned over our son. The doctor shook his head.
“For the moment, there’s nothing I can do.” He slicked back his hair. “The metal is dug deep under his skin and any wrong move it’ll go straight into his heart. Don’t look like that - I’m going to take him to the E.R. in an hour for his head wound.” Madson pulled me off the floor and into a cold metal chair. “We’ll do what we can, but we’re treading on thin ice with his heart. Our son had the curse of that accident.”

This was part of my life - on Earth - where life got unfair. Joy Peak, mother of two, grandmother of two, my mother, was moving. Without me. I had just gotten the news and she and Gina were already half packed. From Bakersfield to Huntington Beach. And here I was in Bangor, Maine. While Trucker and I were quite happy where we were - it was the principle. How did Koty Ash, my closest human friend, decide to cheer me up? He took me aside for a peaceful trip to Portland. It was heavenly. My own hotel room with a comfortable bed and room serves. A fabulous hotel restaurant and swimming pool. No yelling grandmothers, no four year olds to watch. And hardly any Koty. He’d found a pretty young woman - who had shamelessly flirted with him - and I had persisted that the two sashay off whenever they could. Over all an enjoyable getaway. Then we got the check. I owed Koty for the trip so to relieve his wallet I took care of my half of the pay.

As I left Say’s study I took a glance at the others. There would be controversy between the fellows and I, but I was not doing it for them. It was an unbelievable shock that Garay would turn his back on Mayla. That he would excuse her words without hearing them. As much as I resented their bond and despised the fact that Mayla, my pet, decided to share with him stories of her home, in all honesty, I felt bad for her. I could envision her innards crumbling when Garay refused to hear her. I could see it on her face. Though until then, I had been somewhat glad that he was with us to provide her with company and friendship.
      I ended my sparing session with Tyson. After defeating him, twice, it became apparent that he would be no threat to anyone. Even little Mayla would have an easy time with such a clumsy, skilless buffoon. I found myself practicing with other of Say’s guards before giving the traitor anot

Chapter 44  
It was late afternoon when we finally left Aalexander’s castle. Koty was undoubtedly irritated as we walked behind the two kiceko. As far as Say and Sora were concerned, they didn’t like having to stop and wait for us either. Down a well used dirt road, we weren’t quite near any Kinto doors nor were we far from Aalexander’s palace. Apparently, the two kiceko had left the castle without telling Shida and secretly trying to get to Fairen without him knowing. Trucker hung on my back, gazing wildly around at the giant landscape, shuttering away from any passing kiceko that looked down at us. He leaned forward to whisper one of three things I didn’t need to hear from him.
  “I’m hungry.”
  I glanced at Koty who shook his head. “We don’t have any food. Did you put snacks in your backpack?”
  “Huh-uh.”

    Bags. Check. Picture of my son and best friend. Check. Camera and pocket knife. Double check. I was all well and ready to leave for Mentren. With Grammy Jean’s gracious disapproval weighing over my head I descended the stairs to the living room. The first floor reeked of my grandmother’s coffee and I almost wandered into the kitchen to sit for a cup. Instead, I stood before the front door waiting for my little boy and friend to come say goodbye. There was no need to give her the chance to hassle me about leaving. Trucker’s footsteps thundered on the hardwood flooring upstairs. Then thudded on the carpet in the hall as he neared the steps. I could hear Koty right behind him as well, calling for the boy to slow down. Turning to the front door, I adjusted my packs then took hold of my necklace, fondled the latch as I waited. Just a few days and I’d be back. The boys raced dow

Grammy Jean had all the authority in the world to ground me - I was living in her house after all - but instead she made Koty drive me straight to the hospital. A small swat of police met us at the hospital and immediately assaulted us with questions as doctors worked on my already healing injuries. The kiceko medicine had set to work fast and barely any of my wounds needed tending. The ones that did seemed to only be the ones I had constantly reopened. Namely, my knee. Even that was nothing very serious anymore. After some days of being questioned in the hospital room and coming up short on answers, I was released to go home. But not before a trip to the police station. It was a bit scary, the story Koty fabricated for the police. According to him he had woken to his house seemingly to spontaneously combust. He woken up lord knows where a few days before conveniently returning home two days ago. If we kept up our stories of blacking out they were going to start thinking we

Garay was waiting down the path when we left Kail’s home. He had an absolute look of worry and impatience which changed to utter disbelief when he saw Koty lagging along behind Aalexander. Between my kiceko turned friend and I, we were practically dancing with joy. I hung back with Koty, at the expense of an unpleased Ray, on our way to Aalexander’s castle. We needed the time together. And Ray chose to respect our privacy - unlike Aalexander. He was understandably curious about why Ray and I would go to risky lengths to “obtain” Kail’s son. It was difficult to answer that question. And he was such a master of lying he was able to prick ours right out of the air. It was hardly surprising that it was Ray with enough common sense to tell him to mind his own business. Instead I turned the questions around on him, asking how he knew we were there to get Koty. Aalexander’s answer: He knew from the beginning there was something I wasn’t tel

“ELLRICK!”
    The castle walls were a blur as I ran through the halls. Several strings of beaded tassels had been tied around my waist and clattered against the stone flooring. Any guards and handmaids who saw me were overcome with too much laugher to do anything. My pursuer was eleven year old Oren, Ellrick’s son. Which, getting to my point, was why I was running through the halls yelling for the Lucaren king. The day after the treaty ceremony - I expected three hours of peace before going to find Koty - the last thing I needed was being chased by a giant preteen. I could hear his laughter behind me along side the sweet protests of Princess Earon. I swung around a corner - the beads clicked against the wall. I called again. A response came and I dashed into the room after his voice. Ellrick was in the pillow filled room with Quoll and Say and a few of the court. The
