Jeeko’s Journal – Entry 9
26th of Reaping
Grassperson has had his lifemate stolen away. Grassperson is Roland, same one that was nearly abducted on the journey here. (Lifemate: Maribel) Prismeus is…cautious. Wants to retrieve Maribel, but fears creating enemies with the attempt. Prudent, but a split mind is a weak mind.
Of greater importance is Maribel’s location. Disguised as protection for transported rarities; going to Drift first, final destination is Noble. Noble is the gathering place of the Scarlet Hand. Scarlet Hand is group that counts among them The Wizard.
[The following writing was clearly written with a heavier hand than necessary; numerous letters are sharper than usual and some seem written with an unsteady hand.] Blood boils at the thought. Closing in, slowly. Carefully. Keeping scent “downwind.” Learned magics of crippling from Iratra. Will assist hunt greatly if required. Unlikely she realizes intent of use. Don’t care if she does. Do wonder what Iratra would think.
Still don’t know what to do when we finally meet. Dark hunger deep, deep within, so close now.
Want Wish to speak with Elders again. Wish many things. Could be all over soon…could continue for many years. Matters little.
Have the time.
