"Looks like we’re eating on the move, c’mon," Neer said. They grabbed their stuff and started to walk again. And walk, and walk, and walk, they passed at least five port town along the way; each one getting smaller and smaller because of its length away from Zezon. Then they reached a small fishermen’s hut and Bote put on a wicked smile and took off running.
"What’s up with him?" Secha asked.
"Dunno, but c’mon." They followed as closely as they could until they saw where he was running to, a gigantic fortress in the middle of nowhere.
"Well what is this doing here? Well, it sticks out like a sore thumb," Regi retorted.
BOOM! Everyone, except Bote of course, fell to the ground. Something very large had just been shot from the fortress. SPLASH! About two miles out at sea the thing had hit the water very hard.
"What the heck was that?" Secha asked.
"What’s that noise?" Secha asked.
Neer put his ear to the doors for a second then shouted, "Get away from the doors NOW!" Just then the doors burst open and guards came flooding out trying to grab them. One of them tripped Secha and grabbed her, another scooped up Regi.
"Regi!" Ragi yelled. Neer grabbed him and ran farther away. "Regi! No!"
"Leave them be. We got some of them, that’s all we need," a bald man in a brown cloak inside the fortress said. They turned around and went back into the fortress, dragging Secha and Regi.
"We have to save them Neer," Ragi shouted.
"I know, I know but how....," he looked up and saw Bote motioning for them. "C’mon, Ragi."
"No that was you Astu," she said getting in his face from the other side of the cell.
"I thought you were asleep."
"Well, not really. Well Secha I think I know why your crying."
"Oh, really? Why?"
"Well..... I think it’s because he’s..... your brother."
