Evander Smith-Destiny Revealed Part the Third

Joachim just shakes his head before speaking. “The Oracle will see you now,” he says. Joachim begins walking to the wagon, followed by everyone. Once at the wagon Joachim stops and Evander tries to go up to the door. Joachim stops him. 

“I will go in first, you wait out here,” said Joachim.

“Yeah, it’s rude to enter a ladies room,” said Lilith.

“I was going to knock,” replied Evander.

“Suuure you were,” said Lilith.

While they were bickering Joachim entered the wagon and reemerged a few minutes later. “The Oracle will see you now,” he said simple letting them enter.

Despite the wagons size it was able to comfortably sit the five friends with Joachim standing at the entrance. The room is filled with silence and the scent of incense. Everyone is quiet awaiting the Oracle to speak. She doesn’t say a word, just stares at the cloudy crystal ball with milky eyes.

Finally Evander can’t stand it and introduces himself. “My name is Evander, I believe you asked us here,” he said.

“Ah yes,” replied the Oracle. “I have called you here to tell you of your future. But I know that you have questions for me as well, so let’s get them out of the way first shall we?” the Oracle said.

“Why us? Why are we chosen? Why was Tarenvale attacked?” asked Lilith trying to keep the anger out of her voice.

“Only the gods know why you are chosen. Your home was attacked because others have learned of your destiny and seek to keep you from it. Now, let me see your future,” said the Oracle who began to look into the cloudy crystal ball. “Thou shall return to the lost kingdom. Thou shall return the kingdom to its former glory for one among you yet bears the royal blood in thine veins. No…stones! Six stones of power. Four for the elements, two for the Light and the Dark,” says the Oracle. She stares at the crystal for a few moments before recovering herself. “You must collect the stones of power, they control the elements themselves, however…” she pauses for a few moments. “There is a rumor of a seventh stone, it is known as the Void stone,” she says slowly.

“Where can we find the stones?” asks Evander.
