NaNoWriMo 2008 1st excerptSoutheastern Parreden was a very gorgeous place to visit. At least, Nilrem had always thought so. The majestic peaks of the Rimvouge Mountains brushed the sky all around him as he made his way through the small emerald colored valley. His dear companion horse of many years, Seraloway, trod on at a leisurely pace, simply enjoying the sweet smell of the tall grass and the rustle of the wind through the trees.There was no need to hurry. They had plenty of time.It was during one of these leisurely intervals that there came the sound of loud hoof beats and frantic laughter from somewhere off in the trees that dotted along the lower slopes of the valley walls to their right. Both Nilrem and Seraloway glanced over in the general direction of the sounds and sighed in unison, both wondering where the cause of the sound would jump out at them from next.The source of the sounds didn't jump out at them this time like had happened before.
