The merchant was a portly sort, graying and paunchy, and his thin wisps of hair made his round ears painfully obvious. Daen, however, was nice-looking for one of his kind, with a thick shock of blond hair to cover what Dallandra thought of as his deformity. “I’m most grateful you’d speak with me, O Wise One,” Namydd said in his barbarous-sounding speech. ” Daen promptly handed over a cloth-wrapped parcel, which his father presented to Nananna with as much of a bow as he could manage sitting down.
Halaberiel rose, bobbing his head at her. ” “No, but thank you. ” Nananna waited until the banadar was out of earshot before she spoke. ” Dallandra wrinkled her nose and shuddered. Nananna laughed, patting Dallandra gently on the arm with one frail hand. “Whatever you want, child. ” “Oh, maybe so, but I hate it when they hang around me, yapping like dogs around a bitch in heat! ” “It might have been easier, but the Goddess of the Clouds gave you beauty, and doubtless for some reason of her own.
Hold your ugly lying tongue and give me back that bondsman! ” With a gentle smile, Aderyn raised his hand and called upon the spirits of fire. They came, bursting into manifestation with a roar and crackle of bright flame on the sword blade. Howling, Degedd struggled to hold on to the hilt, then cursed and flung the flesh-branding metal to the ground. Aderyn turned the flames to illusions and swung around, scattering bright but harmless blue fire into the warband. Yelling, shoving each other, they fell back and ran away to let their lord face Aderyn alone.
