You wanted to know when we’d almost arrived.
I did indeed. Well done Vomyr.
The voice lost its calm assurance and the valet detected an edge of nervousness as the watcher asked eagerly. Is she with you?
She is but…
There’s something you need to know…
but the voice inside his mind was gone. Vomyr cursed under his breath and his eyes darted to the unmoving form of Lómódë next to him. The gaping wound under her ribcage had almost healed but she had not awakened since he had arrived fully a week ago, barely in time to stop them raping her. An involuntarily shudder coursed over his body at the memory and that of the suggestive looks some of the pack had given him during the nightmare week’s ride.
Prison does unholy things to a man.
Across the camp a man with three missing teeth grinned at him invitingly and the youth suppressed the urge to be violently sick. People this foul were not mutated in prison, he corrected himself. People like these were born repulsive. He looked away from the smile that promised so much that he hated and back to the beautiful but vacant face of the elf he had unleashed these demons to retrieve. He had learned early on that it was unwise to let her out of his sight for more than a moment.
The valet looked up as the Wolf sat down.
“The pack are restless.”
“Why don’t they go out and kill something then?” the valet mumbled.
Wolf acted as if he hadn’t heard and perhaps Vomyr reflected bitterly, he simply had not. In this world of infamy and filth the valet’s voice was a small one and one that was generally dismissed as worthless.
“I cannot keep them away from her much longer,” Wolf continued. “I rule with fear Vomyr. Fear and the knowledge that life wouldn’t be better without me, it would just be a hell of a lot worse. If that knowledge dies Vomyr all I have left is fear and as stupid as they are it doesn’t take a genius to realise that I am just one man. One against twenty…” he sniffed and recalculated gesturing at Lómódë, “fifteen after that bitch shot five of ‘em. That’s still very good odds in their favour.” He leaned in closer so Vomyr could see the dirt ingrained in his very pores. “Know this Vomyr, I’m not going to loose everything over some elvish slut. If it’s her purity or my life I’m going to give her to them and I’ll give them you too, if that’s what it takes. Have I made myself clear?”
“What do you want me to do?” he asked hoarsely.
“Tell me we’re nearly there and mean it.”
“We’re nearly there.”
Wolf scratched the scar that ran through the middle of his mangy beard. “We better be.” He rose. “We’re gonna be paid well for this?”
Vomyr swallowed and lied, “yes” and the Wolf left. He gazed briefly at the chalk white face of the woman he had believed himself in love with. Let the watcher deal with them. Once they reached their destination he would be long gone.
