Innkeeper of The Enchanted Suites
Those had been the orders for the five men who made up The Hounds when the woman named had fled from their encampment. Another pack of Hounds were hunting her accomplice. This pack had been hunting her all day since then.“Maintain distance. Strike her from all angles. Hound her day and night and she will fall. Use your pistols only when your arrows are depleted, or she is too exhausted to fight.”
Her power had been their main concern, but here inexperience in being hunted was their boon. The young woman didn't even know she was fleeing away from the possible haven of Gatecia or some other nation. They were in the wild northern woods, in the shadow of the Forler Mountains awash in a thick mist.
The Hounds waited and stalked through the misty trees, keeping their quarry in their sights, but just out of hers. Five arrows had found their mark so far, and their quivers are still full.
