Chapter 22 Burf was true to his word. At noon there came a knock. When Devon opened the door he found several packages stacked just outside. “Looks like our clothes have arrived,” announced Devon in a loud voice as he set the packages on the shoddy sofa. Mat came out to find Devon pulling on the Druid robes. “I thought you gave up dresses.” Wide-eyed Mat walked around his friend as Devon tugged and pulled uncomfortably at the outfit, “That’s something.” “Yea I’m not going to like this,” growled Devon as he saw a note attached to one of the [...]

Chapter 16 – Matsugo Matsugo lay sprawled nude on a large flat rock above the entrance of their cave. It had become his perch. Where he studied. Where he spent his hours adjusting to this new life. It was secure; if he looked down, he could see into the tunnel leading to their current home. To the front lay the prairies spreading off into the distance. Behind him were great sheer cliffs which rose a hundred feet into the sky. It was always there, watching his back. Devon preferred the brightness of the day; Mat liked the nights. He did [...]

Chapter 14 – Devon finds a Deity Devon lay reading on his stomach under a tree just outside the cave’s entrance. He liked this spot early in the day before it got hot. The sounds of the little insect in the grasses and the herds of wildlife and birds moving with abandon across the plains made him feel more connected to this place. Mat was probably right; they needed to get out. Sitting beside him was a little mammal; he had no idea what it was. I reminded him of a cross between a rabbit and a squirrel; it was [...]

Chapter 9 Over the next few days, both began dealing with their imminent departure. Together they met friends, had dinners, saw movies and entertained. Finally, on the afternoon of the fourth day, they sat back where it started, alone together on Matt’s couch. Devon knew he needed to get home; it was time, but they were both worried now, and scared. “I guess it’s time,” said Devon pushing himself up off the couch. Chewing his lip as he walked to the door then paused and looked back, “I guess the next time I see you we’ll either feel like complete [...]
