Valentines day By: Delaney Gillespie 3               Lorrik wasn’t surprised to hear the sounds of pursuit. It was likely Nerice. Solaria moved far more quietly, and Castra knew him well enough to leave him alone when he was irritated. Nerice was pushier. Usually, he loved her for it, but right now, he wasn’t in the mood.               “What was that all about?” Sure enough, it was Nerice’s voice that entered the room half a moment before she did.               “What was what?”         … Continue reading You know Solaria is incapable of lying

The Healer of Montgisard By: Aya Bassiouny We were told before we departed that a man’s life cannot be taken, unless he gives it away; that if we wish to guard our souls, we hold fast to the sword, for the soul that dives to battle takes it wing from the limbs. But on the ship to Ascalon there was already the scent of death. The ones we loved we kissed good-bye and rode the waves as if there was no coming back, our long green mantles wafting atop our shoulderblades. We were sailing eastward to our dog days and … Continue reading “Your wound, I know the cure,” he muttered in the Saracen tongue, which I had learned to mastery before the journey.
