The Darkness Falls-An Ongoing Tale Chapter 83

Castle Rainport.

“Soon we will rule La Longi .

The power of the portal is ours! 

We must attack now!” 

The Kings Alchemist shook his head at Lord Rainport. “I harness the darkness of the portal. I will decide the time.I will return to my duties for the king.” 

Lord Rainport was livid at the Alchemist’s power play, but restrained himself. 

“My dear alchemist,we have the element of surprise if we act now. Captain Gryll of the Grasshopper is in port ready to give a signal to the mercenaries.”

Captain Gryll’s Mercenary Fleet

The Alchemist was amused. “You are short sighted, Lord Rainport. Tell me your plan.”

Lord Rainport exploded. ” we have been over this dozens of times! 

Your scroll beasts and minions will attack from the west, 

A Minion

I will attack with minions from the north, and Captain Gryll will proceed from the docks covering the south. The river will prevent escape to the east.”

The Alchemist stared down at Lord Rainport condescendingly. ” you are a child. Have you forgotten Northwich? Emerson is completely loyal to the king. Remember that we tried to gain his confidence prior to his meeting with the king?”

Lord Rainport cursed. ” I did not think of that.”

The Alchemist replied, I will think for you. In fact, I already did. From my book of webs , I entangled a mechanism* that produces minions. I took it from a man named Peter in another dimension. He was quite disappointed, but my work comes first.”

“Emerson will have a special surprise.”

 He paused,steepling his fingers.

“Then we will strike.”

*The Alchemist makes minions from your missing socks. Typically they are sent to another dimension by your washer and dryer!

Count your socks. The Alchemist will use them if you don’t.

( sorry about your washing machine Pete! The Alchemist did it)
