“Cade, if you’re so concerned with keeping this thing alive, then it’s your problem now,” Tevarin said in a huff, sheathing her sword. “You deal with it.”
Cade smiled until he looked at the Half-Dragon, its stare was one of malice and ill-intent. The Halfling’s smile flickered. “You promise to be good-erm, I didn’t catch your name.”
“I did not give you my name,” the Half-Dragon said. “Nor will I give it to you. Your foul tongue would trip over it like a blind man tripping over a root on a dark night in the woods.”
“Cade,” I said, approaching slowly, “we should tie him up at the very least.”
“Your friend is right,” the Half-Dragon said, “given the opportunity, I would gladly kill you all.”
“I’m going to go clean up,” Tevarin said looking at the green liquid that still clung to her armor.
“Allow me,” Faleth said stepping over and muttering a word. I watched as her armor seemed to shimmer, cleaning it.
“How did you do that?” I asked, stepping closer to Faleth.
“It’s a spell that they teach to potential students at the university. It proves your worth as a magic user,” Faleth said, “It takes a bit of practice and concentration.”
“Teach me,” I said.
“What am I supposed to do with this one?” Cade said taking a step back from the half-dragon. “Guys?”
“Tie him up!” Faleth and Tevarin said in unison.
