213 Days Until Hope And the Uncertain End

Zeydar laid on his side tracing his fingers over the floor in patterns that Heia could not identify. He was mumbling to himself with a blanket over his body, but otherwise was stable. They were limiting him but not cutting him off completely like he had asked, and yet the progress they’d made seemed like he was stuck in a dream rather than becoming sober.

“The amount of drugs in his system is…” Rayda stepped next to Heia at the doorway as she looked in to Zeydar who was locked in the room behind the glass door. “How he was able to function as a human being, I’ll never know.”

“How much did we cut him down by already?” Heia watched Zeydar move under the blankets, to face the ceiling, starring into the lights without blinking.

“Day one we cut him by half, today half of that.” She answered before showing Heia a schedule and numbers. “Before we started he was so gracious to provide to us the numbers.”

215 Days Until Capture And the Uncertain End

The plan was to keep Zeydar over night, following him as he returned to Star Campus, only to kidnap him and bring him back. They could not keep him at Evester’s home without him being seen leaving, as they needed the alibi for his disappearance. They also would never be able to get into Star Campus. That did not leave very much room for mistake, but it was the only option they had. They needed Zeydar to detox, and they couldn’t let him know of the plan.

The moment that Zeydar left the house to take his walk back to Star Campus, EverDanger was on the prowl speaking to each other over headset and relaying information as they stalked him.

216 Days Until Failure And the Uncertain End

Zeydar stood in Evester’s yard with all too many eyes on him for Heia to feel confident. She was nervous for him, for she would be shaking with the pressure that came from their intense stares. Zeydar seemed to completely ignore the gazes of all those around, but Heia didn’t believe it. There was no way anyone would be able to disregard it all. They stood watching as Zeydar examined her brother. Zeydar’s eyes darted from Kony to Heia, to Evester and back to Kony.

“Stay back.” Zeydar’s warning landed in the silence of the world as they watched his every breath.

“Will this be dangerous?” Heia knew nothing about magic. He had said the spell was simple, but Heia was not sure she could believe that. She’d seen magic that could silence the world and she’d heard of what magic could do in other cases. Their weapons could destroy Aralax so easily. What could this spell do that could hurt her family?

Zeydar had told them that what he was planning to do was a probe. He’d move his magic through them, and through the world around them. Both in an effort to know their status as either X, Circle, or Star, and to see if he could read the Tower’s defenses. If Valaria was going to fall, he may have been able to read it in the body of the Tower now. Perhaps, was the key word however, not even he was certain.
