“I like the ambiance,” Kyle said. “Plus it’s nice to have more space.”
“You’ve gotta be kidding me,” Kyle said. “There’s no way something’s that powerful.”
“Our enemy already has two, and if he comes here, there’s a chance he may find the fourth one,” Konda said. “And it isn’t that the five soldiers have them. No, only their leader does. The most fearsome foe in the Taranoi system, Yvatle the demi-War God.”
Brenda nodded and the two turned right, starting their trek. The city was quiet. Footsteps and some light speaking echoed off of the walls of the tall buildings. Most people were walking on the opposite side of the street, but everyone had a walking buddy or buddies. Kyle wondered how little individuality was stressed on Taranoi, or perhaps there was some hidden paranoia that made everyone walk with a friend.
“How would you know, you’ve been here for like five seconds?”
“Yeah, that might be it.”
“You should, foreigner. Yvalte knows what is right for this system and is willing to do anything and obtain any power he needs to in order to save it from the likes of Konda. Have you met that fool mage, yet?”
“Now that is something I simply cannot allow.”
