038 Against all Odds


“May I ask a question?”

“You may ask.”

“You didn’t fight in the War.”

“I came to my Master after the War. What is your question?”

Udonna shifted. “There was a warrior on our side. An Ancient Mystic, Daggeron. He went missing during the last battle and we never found him.”

“I know nothing of the Ancient Mystic’s fates. Only that they all fell.”

“I see.” She nodded slowly. “None were captured, then.”

“I know nothing of their fates,” Koragg repeated.

“Thank you.”

Koragg studied her for a moment before turning away. “I have matters to attend to. Phineas will be here shortly.”

“Phineas is here already,” the Troblin said from the doorway.

Koragg brushed past him without speaking, and Phineas winced. “Something I said?”

“No.” Udonna smiled faintly. “I believe it was something I said.”

“Oh?”

“I asked about the Ancient Mystics. About Daggeron, to be exact.”

“Huh.” Phineas turned away, fiddling with something. “Why?”

“Because I thought if he were captured, Koragg might know.”

“Koragg wasn’t here then. He joined the Master after the War.”

“Yes, so I’ve been told.” She studied him for a moment. “Phineas? When did you join the Master?”

“I didn’t. I don’t follow him. Just Koragg.”

“When did you join Koragg?”

Phineas turned to look at her. “Just after he took you. All the magic was gone, no one knew what was happening…I saw him taking you away, and I thought, ‘Well, if I go with him I can help the White Witch. If I stay here, I can probably get killed by something.’ So I helped him. I’m still helping him. To help you.”

It was slightly twisted logic, but still logic, and Udonna knew it was working. “I see. Thank you.”

“The Master didn’t kill Daggeron.”

Udonna looked up sharply. “What?”

“Daggeron never made it as far as the Master. He was attacked in the woods. He cast a spell that rebounded and he was destroyed.”

Udonna took several steps forward. “He was taking a child out of the woods, Phineas. What happened to the child? What happened to Bowen?”

“Bowen,” Phineas repeated softly.

“My child, Phineas. Leanbow’s son. What happened?”

“He was taken to the human world.” Phineas spread his hands. “After that…”

“You don’t know.”

“I’m good at this realm. Human world, not so much.” He took a step closer. “He’s a strong boy. Good parents. I’m sure he’s fine.”

“Yes, of course,” Udonna agreed, forcing a smile. “Well, against all odds he survived the War. I must thank you for that.”

Phineas shook his head. “The Light was important to all of us. I’m sorry about Daggeron.”

“He was a brave warrior. I’m certain he fell with honour.”

“Yes. I’m certain he did.”
