NaNoWriMo 2018 - Lost Ocean - Part 10
Yokov had to admit, he brought most of this on himself.
Of course, that didn’t mean he had to be happy about it.
He scratched his head under the damn circlet as he half listened to the man in front of him, wishing someone would come up with something less uncomfortable to show authority. He hated wearing things on his head unless it was a hood to keep his head warm and dry.
There was a silence that made him realize that the man had finished. Yokov cleared his throat. {Sounds to me that you either need to work with your neighbor or find someplace else to settle. It is a big castle with a lot of land around it, if you cannot find a way to deal with your neighbor’s goats, I suggest you find another spot.} Gads, what a ridiculous situation. Did people not have any common sense at all? {But if I find out you’ve done anything to his goats, I will hold you responsible. We need all the livestock we can get now.}
The man bowed, saying he would do what he was charged, and left.

“But will they still float?”
“I do not know. We will just have to see what happens if you manage to get the water back.” Shar’eshelle commented casually.
Yokov had been thinking about the amount of power that would be needed to do such a thing and he wasn’t liking the conclusions he was coming up with. He looked at the goddess, frowning sternly, “I must insist that this is not going to require the deaths of any of my friends.”
Shar’eshelle looked shocked, not at his order but more like she was surprised that he had figured out something before she expected him to.
“Blood is the most . . .”
“No. Deaths.” Yokov growled. Goddess or not he was not going to back off from this proviso. “I know about final strikes and blood spells, I saw what it did to Wizard Healer Tiernan. The explosion nearly killed me in the process. I understand the power there, but I refuse to help you if there is anything requiring anyo

Interactions between Yokov and Captain Pyrs
First Written interaction (from “Yokov and Snorer”):
“Lieutenant Dell! Yokov! Sir! The Captain has been looking for you!”
Yokov opened one eye and looked up at the young man assigned to sending messages. The lad must have run all the way from the palace if the sweat and general disarray of his clothing was any indication. Yokov stretched, yawned, and gave the black-haired runner his full attention. The messenger gasped and leaned against the very comfortable tree Yokov had been sleeping under just moments ago and the blond Lieutenant was reluctant to get up after such a pleasant nap. “You are going to wear yourself out before you reach your twenties, young man.”
“Please, sir. I need you to accompany me to the Captain’s office.” The young man was panting for air, yet looked incredibly twitchy to get going.
Yokov got up slowly, trying not to laugh at the look of growing panic on the young messenger’s face. “It ca

{Where am I, Kaare?} Gerit looked up at the centaur in confusion. The last thing he remembered was being on the incredibly comfortable bed in the Dell cart. Now he was in his own cart but bundled up tightly. He felt warm and unwilling to move. He was obviously under some sort of cover since he couldn’t feel rain, but he could still hear it falling someplace.
The brown centaur smiled with relief at Gerit’s question, {We are in the courtyard of Redcliff Castle. Agent Dell found a way for us to all get in safely. Jaak has dealt with your infection and other illness, so you will be up and about soon.}
{I feel tired. And thirsty.}
{Here is a canteen they left for you. Drink as much as you need. We found a well that Jaak says is safe, so we will not have any issues with lack of water, even if it stops raining.}
Gerit put the canteen to his lips and commented before he took a drink, {It’s not going to stop raining.}
{Well, then we really do have no worries about water. Food

The apologies received from the Head Council of the Town seemed genuine the next morning as they had the dead body carted away to dispose of it properly. It seemed that they also knew who the man was and who he worked for and the travelers were assured that nothing like this would happen again.
Rori had awoken briefly when Yokov joined her in the bed, but rather than pulling away from his icy skin, she hugged him tightly until he felt as warm as she was. One of the best parts of being married, in his mind, the fact that he could share a bed with someone who was willing to keep him warm. His memory of the warm snuggly night was interrupted by one of the council members whose name Yokov hadn’t bothered to remember. {Agent Dell, were there any injuries or losses from the attack?}
{Hmm? Oh, nay. We were well protected.} Yokov smiled, {But I appreciate the attention on the person who may have masterminded the night attack, most travelers are not as protected as we are.}

So, here's where I'll gather everything involved with NaNoWriMo 2018 - Agent Dell and The Lost Ocean. Like last year, I'll post a new section every three days. Hopefully it will be entertaining, if just to see how many typos and repeat uses of words occur ^^; :XD:
  NaNoWriMo 2018 - Lost Ocean - Part 11 (Epilogue)Rori was awakened by the sound of singing. At first, she couldn’t place the voice, then she sat up quickly when she realized it was Yokov. Yokov was singing! She had thought that what had happened last night was just a wishful dream. Apparently, it was real.
She turned toward the cheerful sound. It was one of those questionable drinking songs that he knew, and he was singing it as if he were drunk, loud and energetically. She wondered what he was up to as she slid out of the bed to go check on her husband. She was pretty sure they didn’t have any ale, at least nothing strong enough to get Yokov that boisterous, certainly not this early in the morning.
She came around the large wardrobe that Yokov had claimed for his own and was stunned at what she saw.
There was Yokov, dressed in possibly the oldest leathers he had with him, putting on his oiled cloak and obviously preparing himself to go outside.
“Yokov? What are you doing?”
He turned and grinned at her and she

NaNoWriMo 2018 - Lost Ocean - Part 6There was wind. Yokov tried to look around and figure out where he was but his eyes refused to open. All he could focus on was the strong wind blowing in his face. It was warm and smelled strange, unlike anything he’d ever experienced, but it was pleasant.
“Open your eyes, Yokov Dell. See what I have to give you for all your trouble.”
He opened his eyes slowly at the order of the familiar female voice. “What could you possibly give me that I do not alre . . .” He stopped when he focused on what he was seeing.
In front of him was water. Not a little pond, or even a wide river, but an expanse of water that went on and on, curving down into the horizon. There were waves like in some large rivers, but these were huge and tall and topped with white foam. He gasped as one of the waves came toward him but seemed to pass through him, crashing back into the endless water. He then realized that he was standing on a cliff overlooking the water. He finally found his v
  NaNoWriMo 2018 - Lost Ocean - Part 5{Did you hear that?}
{No, and neither did you. We will keep this to ourselves until Hierny or Agent Dell or the Lady Healer decide to let us know.} Kaare had been walking just a little behind Agent Dell’s cart, having a word with the horses to see if they were all right. Both said they were fine but a little bored and welcomed the simple conversation that Kaare provided. He had half heard what Rori told Herd Leader Hierny, and he was glad for both of them, but wasn’t going to congratulate them until it was news that he was supposed to know.
Gerit, who was on his back, shifted and grumbled in a way that Kaare suspected was like pouting. {We’re going to find out anyway, there’s no way they’re going to be able to keep this a secret.}
{I know nothing about pregnant humans, so I do not know how long it will be before she starts showing.}
{I suppose it depends upon how long we’re travelling.} Gerit sighed. {This is amazing news though! King Makar has no he
  NaNoWriMo 2018 - Lost Ocean - Part 4{It is not fair!}
{I know, my light, but it is the way it is going to be, apparently.} Rori had Yokov’s head against her chest, stroking his hair. {We can survive this. It is better than other things we have been through. At least we have the guarantee that we will not be harmed.} She kissed the top of his head.
{I just wish I would get more information than, ‘Go to Redcliff and wait for instructions.’. I prefer military orders, at least those are straight forward. I did not like them most of the time, but I at least knew what to expect.} He hugged his wife closer. {And I still do not like the idea of dragging you along in your condition.}
{Cart or not, I refuse to let you go without me, Yokov Dell. I would be wreck worrying, despite Vergard’s assurances.} She returned his hug tightly, {We go together, no matter what.}
Yokov let out a sigh then nodded, {All right. Together. We will face whatever The Gods have planned for us together.}
{Perhaps, between the two o
  NaNoWriMo 2018 - Lost Ocean - Part 3Master Hilmar’s office was farther away from the manor house than Yokov would have liked, but he took deep breaths and kept repeating to himself that Vergard was watching Rori. They entered a much bigger and newer looking building, one that looked less like a house and more like a giant rectangle with multiple windows, all carved and painted in those bright colors that the Storyweavers seemed to like. They walked down a long hallway to an ornately carved door, which Master Hilmar opened and motioned Yokov to precede him.
Yokov took in the room they were now in. Master Hilmar called it his “office”. It reminded Yokov of His High Majesty’s study. A large ornately carved wood desk took up the majority of the room. There were large windows looking out onto the open area between all the buildings. On the walls, even around the windows, there were bookshelves going from floor to ceiling that were packed with books. There was no place where any of the wall was showing
  NaNoWriMo 2018 - Lost Ocean - Part 2The centaur herd had managed to get everything set up and the fire pit built when a man came rushing out of the woods. They all came alert and stared at the man in surprise as he stopped and stared right back at them. He was somewhere between 40 and 60 years old from what Yokov could determine and wore the strangest wide brimmed hat the tracker had ever seen. The brim extended nearly past the man’s shoulders, but the hat part was short and topped with something red and fluffy. Fur? A feather? Yokov had never seen any birds or animals with hair or plumage that bright red in these parts or anywhere else for that matter. It would be very hard to miss such a beast if it existed in that color naturally.
As the man and the centaurs studied each other in silence, Gerit and Roel ran up behind the man. Gerit wasn’t paying attention and nearly ran into the older man in the hat before skidding to a sudden stop. The man turned toward then two newcomers. {You were not lying.}
{Of course
        NaNoWriMo 2018 - Lost Ocean - Part 1Gerit Storyweaver stared up at the clouds passing above him. This really was the way to travel, much nicer than walking. His friend, Kaare, was doing the walking for him, pulling the cart that Gerit was resting in, but he didn’t seem to mind. Gerit thought about Kaare for a moment. Even to the young Storyweaver it was odd to think that he’d be calling someone with four legs and a tail “friend”, but that really was what Kaare was. The centaur had brought the Storyweaver to his herd, protected him when they had been attacked, and was now willingly pulling Gerit in his small cart as they travelled. If it wasn’t for the fact that the herd needed Gerit to show them how to find Storyweaver Manor, he would feel rather useless. As it was he really couldn’t do much, but the Centaurs seemed to enjoy all his stories and treated him like a member of the herd. It was different, to be so respected by beings who could probably crush him with one hoof. He didn    NaNoWriMo 2018 - Lost Ocean - Cover by dragondoodle  NaNoWriMo 2018: Snippet
