Shadows Calling Chapter 68Jirios soared high over Kilvas castle, searching for the last two people he needed to see. The first was his father, as he needed to say a few things to him.Shadows Calling Chapter 68 by Ventarix
And last, but not least, was Adrian.
The boy hadn't sought him out to speak with him since he had ran from the infirmary the other day, and the assassin needed to find him again.
Strangely enough, the two were together. Adrian was running in unpredictable circles, chasing a butterfly, as Whispin watched him, seemingly amused at the boy's antics.
The older white dragon lifted his head as Jirios landed, eyeing his son quietly, forepaws folded over one another. "Jirios," he greeted calmly, as a hello and a warning for Adrian that his friend had arrived. "What brings you?"
"Things," his son answered, glancing at Adrian.
Adrian twisted around to look at Jirios, then promptly ran over and buried himself in Whispin's paws.
"Adrian..." Jirios said forlornly, letting Rose slip off of his back as he took a step closer, lowering his head dow

Rose found it odd to see him without Jirios, so she went to check on the commander.
When she approached the infirmary, she instantly knew something was off. There was a generally colder air about the room, and she didn't even have to get inside to see that Jirios wasn't there.
The trail of blood drips leading from the room and off down the hall was a big enough sign to her.
Rose broke into a run, following the trail of blood. "Jirios!" she screamed, her eyes not straying from the trail as she knew it would lead directly to him. "Jirios!"
It lead all the way down to the ocean's edge, where Rose found him slumped against a tall, sweeping palm tree, staring out over the water. Blood dripped, very slowly and delicately, from the corner of his mouth, but it was already stilling. Not that he was close to dying, far from it.

Shadows Calling Chapter 66The next morning dawned bright and early, revealing a quiet hush that had fallen over the castle. It found a weary, battle-worn Jirios sitting up in an infirmary bed, the white shirt and black pants he had been provided with hanging low on his body. Even to those who didn't know him well, the exhaustion showed clearly on his face, coupled with some unknown feeling that apparently had surfaced in the night. From the disheveled state of his long black hair, he hadn't slept well, coupled with the dark circles under his eyes.Shadows Calling Chapter 66 by Ventarix
His thoughts wouldn't let him rest. He didn't know what to think now that Manteke was gone. It was a mixture of relief and a faint feeling of dread. Relief that the evil man was gone, and dread because, what now? Certainly he would return to being the leader of the Saorsa Mercenaries. He could never abandon them, not for anything. But he still couldn't piece what the odd feeling that had kept him awake all through the night was.
