Demesne’ New Beginning teaser:
Guards she thinks, and moving around to avoid being seen, she gets close enough to the camp that she might be able to make out those that are near the fire. She concentrates and her sight returns to normal. She almost gasps out loud as she recognizes those around the fire. Dark ones. Better not hang around here. She shifts her sight back to the grayness and sees other glowing bodies moving slowly in her direction. She carefully and quietly slips back into the deeper darkness and away from the campsite. Skirting the camp, she moves more carefully now and soon comes upon a small cottage and a burned out barn. In the gray of her vision, everything looks cold and unused for quite a while. Oh no! It’s Gretta’s cottage. I am near Haulden.
Great! I have to sneak past a whole bunch of bad guys to get to the western entrance of the valley, she thinks to herself as she examines the cottage. Better not stay in the cottage, just in case the dark ones are checking out the buildings. Though they’ll probably just leave this place alone. It shouldn’t have any more interests to them since Gretta is gone. Maybe I could stay here just for the night.
Looking around carefully, Jira makes up her mind and slips into the building. I’ll stay the rest of the night here, get some rest, and see what is up in the morning. At least now I know where I am and which way I can go. Shame that I can’t have a fire … it’s going to be a cold nap … maybe there are some blankets around since we did leave in a hurry.
