Dathari II: Allegiance Ch. 7Chapter 7Inside the makeshift conference chamber, Ond, Johal, Nariya, and Trinas debated the course of action. Primarily, the important part was defending the refugees now on the island chain, but with the Sornians now in control of the Carren docks and fleets, they would be primed for a naval assault.Although the reclamation of the Datharian homeland was at the forefront of everyones minds, the decision was to attempt to land on the western coast of Ketar, and pincer any Sornian forces that might have been there already. If there were no Sornians, and the Ketarans saw them as threats
that would be a different situation for a different time.By the time the meeting was called off, plans had been made, armies had been requisitioned, and the war to end all wars began.When morning came, Ond gave a public speech detailing the plans that were made the last night. To his surprise, he was met with more jeering than support.They do not understand why we cannot take back o
Dathari II: Allegiance Ch. 4Chapter 4It was an extra five hours march to the woods. By the looks of the paths, the Sornians chose to go around the forests instead of through. It was probably a wise choice, considering the forest had a mythical air to it. In fact, it was that so-called Dark Presence that made it a perfect hiding spot during the Revolution. Now, perhaps it would hide allies again.They entered the wood, trying to make as little sound as possible. The going was slow, but the need for secrecy was great. The King of Ketar had just been led into the heart of enemy territory.What if Korus makes a fool of himself on the throne? Cital asked no one in particular.He probably will, knowing him, Trinas chimed in. Korus, the half-brother of Trinas, was a political and military advisor to the King, and had been granted the throne while Cital was away.Nariya added, At least he has a good head on his shoulders. Most of the time.A light began shining up ahead, w
Dathari II Allegiance Ch. 3Chapter 3He woke early the next morning, still on edge from his capture. The sun was just creeping over the horizon, and it was struggling to make it further. Light began to filter in through the waterfall, and beams crept into the farthest reaches of the cave. Three of the Ketarans were still sleeping, but one was missing.He heard a soft twang, and quickly rolled away from his wall into a fighting stance, ready to draw his dagger. However, the arrow never came this way. A light yelp was heard, followed by the sound of something heavy hitting the ground. Alhon quickly looked at Tharra, making sure she was still there.His fears of the Ketarans did not abate over the night. Worries filled his mind about how they would react, now that they were rested.Soon the light fell across the faces of everyone else, and they began to stir out of their sleep. Alhon stood up, not knowing what to expect. In the light he was able to see his captors more clearly. He saw the blonde one, who attacked h
Dathari II Allegiance Ch. 6Chapter 6At least the ships were gone.Other than that, there was no hope.Ond and Cital were at the top of the wall, making their way towards the staircases down. There were more Sornians that he had expected, certainly more that the small Datharian army could handle. Although Kelon was back at Shathon, there was no way for the armies to make if before Carren befell the same fate as Mador. Carren had significance: This was still the original Shalmathi city, while Mador was a rebuilt town. Now, the last hope of their country was within the walls of that city.Sornians were pouring over the wall, and Johals squad was overrun. They began to trickle into the city proper, but the edges of Alhons and Nariyas forces were cleaning them up.All of a sudden there was a loud crash at the gate. People above it were falling down, and a few soldiers fell off of the wall, only to land on the spears of the Sornians. The end of a large log was sticking thorough a hole in the gate. I
Dathari II Allegiance Ch. 5Chapter 5The cold, gray Hirian Kirath range stood before them.The path faded from here, as the Invaders apparently scattered to cross the mountains. However, there were obvious footprints through the Deathcamp, the last resting-place of the Shalmathi tribe. It was there that the Shalmathi chose to destroy their camp instead of letting the virus that was killing them spread. Sadly, it failed, and the entire Shalmathi people were wiped out. The Datharian tribe was unaffected, though.The group began the slow march up the sides of the mountains, staying alert for any sign of Sornian activity. Cital asked Alhon to keep Kimolthe sheathed, lest the light give away their position. He still carried his dagger, so he was never completely unarmed.Most of the trip was silent enough to keep them from worrying about being captured, but it was still a dangerous proposition. Every one hundred steps, they stopped and tried to spot any of the Sornian camps that kept the forces at Shathon from passin
