The next morning after Elariel's unexpected arrival, went Sincano into the garden, even before he had a proper breakfast. He knew, he'd find her there and the sooner he could get to know what she was up to, the better. And as usual was she wandering through the garden. Nature always seemed to attract her. He remembers that about her as far as he can think back. She waved to him and Sincano noded with his stern face.
_________ "So, after you had some sleep and good food, you're certainly up to tell me what brings you here, aren't you?!".
_________ "And aren't you rude as always?" Ela questioned him in return and added "What about 'Hey! We didn't see for a while, how have you been?!'?".
_________Sincano sighted "Ela, I don't have time for all those talk right now. I am currently very busy with some preparations."
_________ "Ah right. The travel back to Alinor."
_________ "You know about it?!" Asked Sinaco confused.
_________ "Sure, word travels fast! Even your mother is awaiting you happily already." Ela laughed.
_________"Is she?!" Sincano asked with a face that looked like it had seen a ghost
_________"Oh no. This means she has time to make preparations, too." Sincano burried his face behind the palm of his hand.
_________Ela laughed. She found it just too amusing how her aunt stirred up his love life with all kind of introductions. Then the smile vanished and she gave Sincano a letter. "This is the reason why I am here."
______Sincano took the letter and read it carefully. "More bad news? The Psijic Order calls you back? What does that mean?"
______ "I don't know yet. But it means I'll come with you to Alinor."
______ "You'd think the Psijic Order would send some nice - wait. You're not planning travelling with me? And why Alinor?!"
______ "For reasons. And yup. And before you start arguing, remember I can keep your dear mother busy."
______ "Ela, this is black mailing."
______ "I know. And so good, that you can't deny it!" Sincano sighted. The start of his journey went already out of hand. It couldn't become worse, could it?!
