Chasing Chimes EpilogueZara glanced over at Darn, wondering if he was as nervous as she. Rania had finally sent word that her husband Pinon was back and had agreed to meet them. She had never met a drow, not like this anyhow. Would he be rude or subservient or spiteful or . . . well, she didnt know. Darn smirked back at her as if he knew what she was thinking and was amused. Glory was quite aways ahead, running back to them and then out again, to excited to travel at a normal pace.
Do you think they will like what we brought? she asked, looking at the basket Darn carried. Rania had said she would make dinner for them, so they brought just a bottle of good red wine and some cookies for the girls. He grinned, Of course they will, love. Its wine and cookies.

HauntedThe house at the end of the street is silent, warm afternoon sunlight filtered through trees onto the green grass, and small winter garden. A few children's toys lay scattered about, like wilted flowers, colors faded. A door slams, and a woman walks out, hands in fists at her sides. "I am done," she mutters, crossing her arms.

The weather got colder as Darn and Zara walked further from the city, snow drifts piled high along the sides of the road. Icicles hung from trees, and little red snowberries peeked from under dark green leaves. Following the directions on the poster, they turned from the main road and onto a side path. Shattered stone decorated the sides of the path, jagged edges open to the sky. It didn't take long for the forest to be broken up by ice encrusted columns, stone benches and toppled statues
Zara smiles at Darn. "I think we at least went the right way. I don't know how we will find a toy in all this snow though."
Darn shivers pulling his scarf higher above nose "Same..."he mumbles
A large snow man sits atop a chunk of stone, bright red scarf waving in the wind as he watches them with coal eyes.
"I thought this place is abandoned." Darn narrows his eyes at the snowman
Zara points, "Maybe next to that? I don't know what kind of child would come t
