Alkon & Anthousai 4

Chapter One

Alkon was at a bar having a drink with Hybris and Kallen when a man approached Alkon. Alkon assumed the man must be a noble. It was in the way he held himself and walked, even in the way he spoke. “Are you Alkon Birral?” He asked as though he already knew and Alkon liked the confidence. Even nobles sometimes spoke to him with apprehension “Yes I am, why?” Buck lowered his voice “may I speak with you in private? Your ship mates may be around but I don’t want the wrong ears here to know what we discuss”

She felt cold, her entire body shook, waking her. She blinked awake, her eyes resting on the open door that let snow swirl in and around her. What was happening? Where was she?

She yelped, scrambling back.

Alpheus didn’t care if he went or not, he’d close the bar and he’d follow weather Rehan wanted him following or not. He couldn’t help but smile as the two conversed.
