    Thanks, everyone.

    My life has gone haywire in the last couple of days, and promises to remain that way for the rest of the week. It is extremely unlikely that I'll get anything up here today, but I will try to get something up tomorrow.

    Thanks for your patience!

    Yes, I'm still alive.

    However, I have been sick for a couple of weeks, and the pace of school and other activities has not been helpful. It looks like my life will slow down considerably next week, so I will have something up soon.

    Another thing that we can hope for is that my throat won't get any worse than it is now. It's not good when a voice major gets a sore throat.

    Love ya!
    Mel

    Hi, everyone. I managed to write something halfway decent. Thankfully I'm starting to feel better, especially after taking a nap. I think I'm going to keep the pace of this somewhat scaled back so I can continue to recover from whatever this is that I've contracted. Hopefully I'll be back up to daily posting soon...

    *~*~*~*

    After an hour of traveling into the Freal Valley, Jag was glad to have Jaina along. Every time he thought of his little sister injured in the dangerous territory, he thought back to Kyria. Having Jaina there with him kept him from losing touch with sanity.

    He tried to tell himself that the situations were hardly comparable. Kyria had been killed in battle, and Danae was only stranded in the valley and injured. While Kyria's death had been instantaneous, Danae was in a position where she could be helped. That was why he was on his way, to help his little sister.

    To keep her from sharing Kyria's fate.

    "Jag."

    Jaina's quiet voice cut through the dark mists surrounding his thoughts, bringing his attention back to the current situation instead of Kyria's death. He glanced at her as he guided the transport. "What?"

    "This isn't Kyria. She's okay."

    "I know, Jaina. I'm doing my best not to let this be Kyria again."

    *****

    The ride was mostly silent, as was the subsequent walk deeper into the valley. Jaina could barely stand to be there as Jag's thoughts turned darker and darker. She knew that she needed to support him, but something primal within her was screaming for her to get away from the dark aura surrounding him. Instead, she gently put her hand in his. He gripped it strongly, as if that human contact was the only thing keeping his grip on reality.

    Jaina had given up trying to talk with him. Every word she said seemed to sink him deeper into reflection on his dead sister. Instead of talking, she focused her energies on locating Danae.

    The difficulty that she had in finding the child worried her. It was as if she was slipping in and out of consciousness. During the times that she was conscious, she was filled with such obvious fear that Jaina wanted to run in the opposite direction.

    But every moment in which Danae was unconscious strengthened her resolve to get to the girl before it was too late.

    When they reached the edge of a cliff leading down into the lowest part of the Freal Valley, Jaina inhaled sharply in shock. As the clouds below her parted, she saw that the bottom of the valley was at least five hundred feet below them. Danae was down there. "Jag," Jaina began, "how do we get down there?"

    "The same way she did," he replied, pointing to small footprints.

    As she followed Jag down the narrow path, she sensed irritation creeping in to Jag. "What's wrong?" she asked.

    "When we find her, I'm never letting her go. Then I'm going to make sure she's grounded till she's thirty."

    Wonderful post. I loved that last line too.

    "When we find her, I'm never letting her go. Then I'm going to make sure she's grounded till she's thirty."

    That may be one of Mel's best.
