Darnassus was quiet. Far away from the chaos of the Dark Portal, it was no wonder she’d chosen a place like this. They’d all received the letter – enclosed with it, a tiny living seed. “I’ll be back, but keep this to remember me by.”
She clutched the small seed in her hand, tight to her chest. It was imbued with magic she’d seen from watching the woman who sent it. The lightposts illuminated the stones in the road as she walked further into the city. As she wandered down the streets, she fished an envelope out of her pack. She checked the address on the envelope, and turned down a narrow tree-lined path.
A small house sat at the end of the path, lit by small torches outside. Where the exterior was lit, the interior was dark. She frowned, this should be the right place. This is what I get, showing up unannounced. She clicked her tongue in annoyance, and checked the envelope again. She huffed and paced in front of the house.
She tapped the envelope against her hand. She sat on the doorstep, and set a small wooden devilsaur down beside her. She could leave a note to say she visited, and set up another date. Better than nothing, she thought. She managed to get a small leave from her duties but had to catch the boat back to the Eastern Kingdoms that evening. Waiting wasn’t an option.
She rummaged through her pack for a quill and ink. She cringed as she ripped a page from her notebook. Smoothing the paper over her knee, she scribbled onto the page. She tied the small wooden devilsaur to the letter and set it gently on the window sill before turning back down the path.
I’m so sorry I missed you. I should have sent an owl ahead of me! I hope this note finds you well. I’ve heard you’re relaxing from adventuring, and I wanted to visit while I could.
I hope your daughter likes the small gift! It’s King Krush, you know that terrible green devilsaur from Sholazar? Anyway, I wish you the best, and I’ll be back to visit soon!
