Jon Wood's "Neverdie" continues with chapter six of Rowan's adventures. Every other Sunday, we bring you a new chapter of this original work of fantasy fiction.
|Hours had passed in almost near silence as the valiant Knight of Rah, Ashley Guildarm and his newly rescued charge, the apprentice mage of Greengem tower, Rowan Tallfelter, went about their own business in the camp. Ash himself felt as though all that needed to be said had been said. He had a job to do, and he reminded himself of that face time and time again as the hours passed and he tried to get to sleep. Still, the woman stirred something inside of him that he hadn’t felt in a long time. Acknowledging that fact, on the other hand, was something that he would not allow himself to do. Not while he was on mission.
“Tell me about your order,” Rowan said, surprised that the words had come out of her own mouth. The knight’s insistence on continuing with her into the elven forests had worried her, his statement that “he had his orders” had disturbed her more. So many questions had been swimming through her mind ever since he had said those words. Whose orders did this man follow? Those of his order, or those of his new king? To whom did his order answer? Was it indeed the great deity Rah, or was it a bureaucrat in a lust for power? Such a thing was known to have happened in the lands of the humans.
