Evander Smith-The Storm before the Dragon Part the First

“C’mon guys, hurry!” called Lilith. She had been pushing to go fast just before first light. Lilith had packed most of the gear the night before. In fact it looked as though she had not slept at all. “I know you guys can move faster than this,” she said quickening her pace. Aeryn had no problems keeping up, being the fastest one among them. Evander and Travis had to push themselves to keep up. Rothus tried, however, he was too tired and decided to walk, Tyler decided to stick with Rothus.

“What’s the hurry Lily?” asked Evander.

“The faster we find the bracelet the faster we get back,” she said.

“Hey guys, I don’t think it’s a good idea for us to split up!” called Tyler from behind.

“Ok, let’s wait for them to catch up,” said Evander slowing his pace.

“No, we have to hurry,” said Lilith almost pleading.

“We are walking into unfamiliar territory, I don’t thinks it’s wise to split up,” said Evander coolly. They waited for a little while for Tyler and Rothus to catch up.

“Alright they’re here, let’s move it,” said Lilith.

“I thought you were supposed to be the leader, why are you letting her set the pace?” said Tyler disdainfully.

“Because no one objected, however since Rothus is having trouble keeping up we can slow the pace,” said Evander.

“No, we have to move fast,” said Lilith.

“Lily, what’s so important that we have to push ourselves?” asked Evander.

“Well we have to get this item,” said Lilith.

“What’s so important about the item?” asked Evander.

“We have to get this bracer to get the other item,” said Lilith.

“Well, the item will still be where it is when we get there. For now let’s just walk there,” said Evander. The group continued on at a more manageable pace.
