He could not believe his luck. This time, he really couldn't believe it. The Norwans had approached him, and had not only not arrested him, but they had need of his services. He thought he had blown it. He thought he would lose the only person he valued above the elves.
It was her who had given him the message. They had watched him, chased him, even threatened Alina at first, and now they thought they could get through to him! What luck!
Now he could undo their plot while making them pay for what they had tried to do. He was eighteen now, yet they wanted him at the value of a high-ranking officer. Ha! He was old enough to know that they only wanted to brainwash them.
He could have fun with this. . . so he decided to go and see the Norwan general.
