Jaeyn Summerleaf sat at his camp in the hills just north of the Shrine of Aviana. Vassanta had left him with Sketch so she could go get more candy without the hyena eating it all before she returned.
He saw his sister approaching the camp. He waved, and greeted her as she neared.
She smiled, “Hello Jaeyn. I trust your trip to Nordrassil went well?”
“It did. Ysera is there.” Jaeyn recalled the questions Vassanta had asked about the dream. How was he supposed to know? He was unsure if he even had the ability to enter it while sleeping. One thing was for sure. He didn’t want to find out. He felt a kinship with his animals, but he didn’t want to be them. He didn’t know the answers to many of her questions and had simply agreed with her that they should ask a druid to find out.
“Yes, she is investing much here. Hopefully it will be over soon.”
He nodded as he reached in his bag. He pulled out some wrapped fish that didn’t smell very fresh. He tossed one to Sketch who eagerly ate it.
Kelanori put her hand over her nose and mouth. She appeared to be trying not to breathe. As he wrapped the remaining fish back up, she said with her hand still in place, “I know it’s been some time since leaving Darnassus. I did want to check to make sure you’re doing okay.”
He put the fish back in the bag, frowning slightly as he closed the bag tightly. “I’m fine.” He smiled as he thought of the dwarf he had left in charge. They had used him, promoted him to commander so that he would finance them but they wouldn’t follow him. Nor would they repay him when he decided he was done with their nonsense. Of course they wouldn’t. None of them had gold. He hoped the dwarf did what he was too nice to do.
Kelanori paused momentarily, her brow furrowed. “That’s good. There are some other people that are still hurt over it.”
He raised a brow. “I don’t care about the idiots in Darnassus. They can eat squirrels and drink at the lake and go to Stormwind and dance with humans all they want.”
“I mean people that you should care for. Some would like an apology.”
“I– I told you I was sorry.”
She sighed. “I mean other people.”
He paused before asking, “Terivanis?”
She blinked, “You didn’t already? He hasn’t said anything.” She sighed again, “I mean Jeallynn and Tathariel.”
“She hates me.”
“Maybe there’s a reason for that.”
He nodded. He was sure Kelanori thought something different than what he was thinking but he nodded. There was no reason to argue with her.
“It may be good if you talk to Tathariel and Jaellynn.”
He nodded again although he was pretty sure that would be a bad idea.
She smiled. “I’m going to head back to get some sleep.”
“Will you be downstairs later tonight?” He asked.
“Most likely.” She replied.
He watched as she made her across the small field back to the Shrine’s inn.
