“And your whole clan were killed?”
Kalar nodded. “Yes.”
Crowstone was quiet for a while.
“There have been many such atrocities in the lowlands. A dark man is responsible for these atrocities,” he said.
“A dark man?” Kalar asked.
Crowstone inhaled from his pipe. “Yes, one I have known in the past. And one I shall know again soon.”
His eyes locked with Kalar’s. “You shall know him too. When it is time.”
For all the heat in the cave, Kalar shuddered. They both sat and watched the fire for a long time. Neither spoke further.
