Casting Runes Part 134Colleen was ready, ready to fight for what she wanted.
Jordis, however, felt the dread she had felt over the past days return with full force once she awoke. Their endeavour was by no means an easy one and the chance to fail… she did not even dare think about it.
As if he had felt her shudder even in his sleep, Neil pulled her a tad closer against his warm chest and instantly, Jordis smiled. They had to fight, because it was the right thing to do. But, as her hand wandered to her stomach, as it had done frequently ever since she had learnt that she was carrying a child, she reminded herself that their fight was just and necessary, yet this did not prevent her from fearing the worst.
With a heavy sigh she turned to Neil and placing a soft kiss on his cheek, she whispered: “Wake up, there is a long way ahead of us.”
He grumbled lightly, but as soon as his eyes had focused on hers, he smiled and said: “Good morning, love. You are right, let’s go.
Casting Runes Part 132None of them had any idea how to proceed from where they were now.
During their small meal and almost half of the night, their plan was the only topic they talked about. But to no avail.
“Going through the gates is suicide, so scrap that.”, Liam snorted in reply to Miya’s suggestion, „You can’t simply waltz in there.“
“True.”, Neil nodded, “There are guards positioned at the gates and they are always keen on the lookout for those wanted for crimes, in this case, Liam, Jordis and me and…”
He stopped short and Colleen’s stomach churned, but alas, he was clever and calm enough not to let on that possibly, the most trusted men of the King’s Guard would also be looking for her. Instead, he simply continued: “Jordis and I fought the Grand Caster which was laid out at attempted murder on our part. There is no way in through the gates.”
“Oh, cheer up!”, Miya laughed, „Who ever s
Richtigstellung - Part 6 (Khan FF)Khan wälzte die Idee, die ihm eben erst gekommen war, doch je mehr er darüber nachdachte, desto stärker wurde sein Entschluss. Es war die einzige Möglichkeit.
Er bog scharf nach links um sich sofort auf den Weg zur Brücke zu begeben, als Kirk beinahe in ihn hineinlief.
„Hey, hab‘ schon gehört, dass ihr wieder zurück seid.“, begrüßte ihn der Captain der Enterprise, „Wo ist Ellie? Und…wow! Wo kommt das ganze Blut her, ist euch beiden was passiert?“
Khan erkannte ehrliche Sorge im Blick des anderen, was ihn überraschte, aber dennoch antwortete er harsch: „Ich bin jemandem passiert.“
„Ja, dachte ich mir schon…“, stöhnte Kirk und deutete dann mit einem Nicken auf seine verdreckte Kleidung, „Wollen Sie sich…vielleicht umziehen?“

Rectifications - Part 6 (Khan FF)The idea that had just emerged in Khan’s mind, he entertained thoroughly, but the more he thought about it, the more his determination grew. This was the only way.
Taking a sharp turn to the left he decided to make his way to the bridge right now when Kirk almost ran into him.
“Hey, I heard you’re back.”, the Enterprise’s Captain greeted him, “Where’s Ellie? And…whoa! What’s with all the blood, something happened to you two?”
Khan recognised genuine concern in the other man’s gaze, something that surprised him, but he gruffly retorted: “I happened to someone.”
