Vestige of Credence (Epic Fantasy Book): Chapter 4
Part 26: Help on the Journey
“Unfortunately,” Ellara began, “we really can’t help you find your way back to the Basalt people. Although Lailie and Anvid are able to guide us through the underground, it is impossible to know right now where we stand in relation to the surface locations. If you like, you can join us and we can drop you at the surface when we journey back that way.”
Ramus was pleased with the idea and thankful for the assistance. Due to time constraints, it probably would not be possible to accompany her to the city, but at least they could send an elusa masulk with her in case she encountered another scout. In light of all they learned from Ramus, they were all even more anxious to find Niomi and carry on with the mission. Every moment lost was valuable. Within what seemed like less than half a day later they finally located the trench. All their plans hinged on this being the correct trench. Niomi and her family were hiding at the base of Viaoli, but the company couldn’t be sure they had even found the correct place.
When they entered the trench, everyone decided the best method of locating Niomi would be sending Mij by himself, without carrying a load, to swim around searching for her. His speed would be accelerated greatly without the extra weight on his back, so hopefully he would be back soon with news. They waited patiently and made use of the time by resting. It felt like they waited a long time before they finally spotted their Dragile companion approaching in the distance. Only after his landing did they realize he succeeded in finding someone, because a Basalt woman descended from his back.
“Hello,” the Basalt stranger greeted them. “I am called Niomi.”
“Happy Arryl,” spilled Ellara. “Kadden,” she glanced at him, “and I have traveled far to find you. The elders sent us on a mission. We need to get to the Cumulus territory. Can you get us there?” she questioned hopefully.
