Dalziel finally opened the door and let us in. He offered Callan some food, who politely declined it. There was silence for the longest time. During that silence Callan sat down in a chair, Dalziel leaned against a wall, sighed then slid down to the ground while I leaned against the door examining Callan. Finally the silence was broken.

"So..." Callan began "How did you two find each other?"

"It's a long story actually." Dalziel said before beginning to tell the story of how he saved me from death after I'd been whipped in public for stealing some food. Meanwhile my thoughts drifted to the dream.

"The rest have awaken. Find them before he does." The voice echoed in her head. What did it mean? I stood there pondering until Callan asked a question.

"Do you think there are more of us out there?" I hadn't noticed that Dalziel had finished the story. 

"I don't know. I mean... Have you see any others?" Dalziel asked Callan.

"Three." I said. Finally understanding something.

"What?" Dalziel asked confused. "Three what?"

"There's six of us. We need to find the other three before Keallach does." I said, standing up straight. Both of them were giving me a surprised look.

"And you know this how?" Callan asked giving me a disbelieving look.

"I had a dream last night." I explained to them my dream. "There were five crystal floating in front of me. Blue, green, yellow, orange and red. Dalziel has blue and Callan has red and in the dream my crystal began to glow as the others appeared!" I said excitedly. There was a long pause.

"So how do you expect us to find the others?" Dalziel asked

"That is an exellent question."

The End
