Kalar the Apprentice, № 06

“Lay still,” the voice told him. Kalar stopped trying to sit up and did as he was told.

He opened his eyes. Looked about. He was in a cave lit only by fire. The stocky frame of a man with long grey hair ambled over toward him.

“I am Crowstone. You’re lucky to be alive.”

Kalar couldn’t speak. His mouth was filled with salt and sand.

“Rest. When you are ready, we will speak,” Crowstone said.

Kalar lay back down. Fell to sleep.

Chop chop chop went the axe against the tree.

Hit it,” his Father told him. “Again.”
