But it was not too scary – now when she was more and more feel like stainless still sword she even can’t imagine pain of this process.
Rina turn her head to Dari and said: » It is not the true- you’ll feel pain even when united with the sword, you only will not be able imagine how it feels before you’ll get hurt.”
“Rina, you know this time your words and the fact that you are answering my thoughts were not so surprising for me as usual. Do I’ll get the power to understand your thoughts
After a while three dark silhouettes came from the forest and each tried to kill one of the human but didn’t pay attention to pets.
When the first one reaches Rina she touched him and he fell down with the groans. Dari pushed the one who approached her under the knees and he felt too and Hairy with Boomush attacked the one who was trying to get Balder, but in this case he didn’t want to kill Balder, he just wanted to drag him into the forest. This attempt fail either because Hairy and Boomush

Unfortunately all these preparations and plans were for nothing, because while they tried to land, the great wave arrive from the island and pushes their boat from it. It shows that it was the right island, which was good protected by Ieronim, and to land on it they need to do some miracle for which they do not have time. Wave dragged the boat toward other island and dropped it broken on the ground.
At least they all were unharmed and rushed to go from the sea toward the big rocks, because
It was too much for Dari and she awake with the loud cry. “What the matter?” Rina turned to her.
Dari told her the store about her became the sword of freedom. Rina took her hand and said:” It is the truth- you can unite with the sword and became the one with it, because after your training you start to understand and feel it like you feel yourself. It happened before with other people who were using this sword. Now the sword chooses you to be his continuation. It is not so scary how it may
In a few moments they were on the beach near the old cabin with elderly couple repairing the fishing net. “ I know them- it’s Nestos and Lana, they often supply the fish to the palace”, Darta said. “ It is good that they have the boat” Rina glances around and spotted the boat near the big stone. “ We should ask them to sell it to us”
“ Darta, please, since you know them go to them and ask how much they want for the boat and also say them that they should run from here quick because Moreva
“Rina, Rina ,» Dari ran to her and tried to touch her hand but Rina was cold and hard like stone. Her eyes were glued to the Balder’s (or may be now not Balder’s?) eyes.
Dari sensed that Rina was trying to defeat someone or something that got inside Balder and now was trying to kill Rina.
Dari was not sure what to do but at this moment the Sword of Freedom became heavier on her belt and she understand that she had to use it.
She lifts it up and waves it between Rina and Balder
Dari, Mastlis and Darta were sitting quite around the dying fire they do not know what to say. But suddenly Balder sat and said
«I was not asleep most of the time and heard enough to understand what’s going on. I think that I read something about similar situation in our old books. When I were studying in King’s castle.
Something like this had been happened before and ancient people found the way to restore the light within for all. Heh may be not for all but for most of them.
« Could you revive him?» Dari was so shocked by this sudden death that she wanted to turn it back and was hopping that Rina can do it.
«I do not think that I can,”Rina shook her head,
«Moreva used something inside his mind to connect with her spell, something that was similar to her vibrations. And when two similarities are connected it is impossible to break it. It is very interesting abilities of minds- to attract the similar vibrations and to bond with it. But it makes easier to
“Here you are wrong, “said familiar voice and Rina entered the cave.
“We can defeat her, it would not be easy but we can do it especially with your, prince Balder, help, “ Rina sat near the fire and pet Hairy and Boomush, who was sleeping near Balder’s feet.
“Oh,» Dari thought
“It seems that Balder already earn Boomush love but how? He didn’t do anything good to him or to us all.”
“Dari do you her me?»Rina’s voice interrupted Dari’s thoughts
Hairy. Boomush, Balder and Archie followed her and soon they got to the place there fire was. Now only parts of charcoal were there and Dari starts to collect more wood from around the cave. There were a lot of branches may be they were brought here by flooding last spring.
«Hey boys, do not stand like you are royalty, oh sorry, of course you are, but anyway do not stand, help me to get more woods and we will be able to cook something (if we are lucky and there are something left in the bags)
. She blocked one sword and jumped left to avoid another. But though she or mostly her body knows how to fight she could deal with one not all two at the time. It seems that Hairy thinks so as well and she jumped on the second man with all her weight and clips him to the ground with her big paws.
«Thanks,» Dari said attacking the first man and blocking his attack. The sound of clenching swords cover previously peaceful and quiet woods. Dari’s attacks were so strong and unusual, that first
Hairy with Boomush on her back followed her and Dari tried not to be left behind. She starts to move her feet faster, which was not too easy because of deep sand in which her feet sank almost half way to the knees.
It got better when they reach the palms and some sort of the hard trail lay under their feet.
The shadow of the palms was helpful too. After a few minutes they were looking on the hill, erected from the palms in front of them.
«Let’s go around the hill, we probably
Hairy went through the door without hesitation, as she was used to travel with the help from such strange doors, and Dari thinks that of course Hairy is used to it, but for Dari it was very hard to pull herself together and go through this door, may be even harder than step on the cloud after Rina yesterday.
Oh, it was only yesterday when she starts this new and unusual life with traveling through portals and clouds, but there was no time to think about it – she had to go after Hairy and
“Who is Master Herdrim and why did he joined Dantest? I thought that Masters are good people and could not fight alongside with warlords.” Dari said
“Oh you are making very common mistake. Masters not all good - they are the same as all other people:some good, some bad, but they know how to keep themselves in hand and do not show their real face at first glance. Sometimes they keep doing it all life and nobody know what is it inside their head, but sometimes they open this curtain a little
«Let’s eat and start our training,» Rina said.
She puts some wood in the fireplace and brings milk, bread and honey to the table.
Dari feels hunger and starts to eat as she used to do before the tragedy. She was curious why she recover so quickly - was it the Master’s doing or the charm of the Mountain air.
Never the less she ate all the food on the table in blink of the eye and rushed to the door.
«Rina, let’s go, quickly, you should teach me to fight,» Dari jumped on
