The smoke was thick tonight. We were mimicking poets, attempting theater, and challenging the gods. Passion covered us all like a layer of dust. Hope was caught in buckets as it dripped from the ceiling. The night was familiar, and we get silly when no one is looking..

I encouraged Dye to continue with his mapping. I've worked hard at letting go of all my previous attachments, but I don't handle being lost too well, and seeing a map would at least let me pretend to feel a little more confident.

Dye whispered, "Finally, look sharp boys." I looked around and could see a large mass of shadow waddling towards us. Dye slid his hand inside his cloak.

We all took turns poking the fire hoping it would do something. Hummer talked about the beautiful sounds that come from the sharp mountains ahead of us. He pulled out his sword and spoke of triumph and illusions...

The hellish day was interrupted by something angelic. Something so pleasant sneaks past our collective alert, clever. I stood with conviction but let the sound wash over me for a few seconds longer. This intruder was spellcasting or something else with magical intentions...

We needed a break, a long sleep. Space to let our dreams wonder and collect the pieces that the day lost. The wizard is off chasing his muse, something about a red dragon. It's pointless to try to understand his direction or purpose....

Madam Nestings woke me the morning we departed the great city of Bellyonna. She moved with careful precision pulling my covers back. I would have been alarmed if it was anyone else but with her...
