The Summons

Fair warning all, this is going to be my first ever attempt at an RP post….

The push would begin soon. Gweninu felt the time coming deep in her bones. After the Lich King’s ruthless assault on the tournament, there could be no denying it. Gwen could not forget that fateful day. Duranub Raiding Co. had been summoned by Highlord Tirion Fording to compete against the Argent Crusade had to offer. No one had expected Arthas to react the way he did. After he demolished the floor and sent them all crashing down in to the ruins of the Old Kingdom, the shock and hatred of what they saw had motivated them into action. Snub’rican had been raised once more and was even more powerful than before. Now, that was all in the past. The Lich King’s champion lay dead and buried in the ruins hidden deep below the frozen earth.

Then it started, the the assault on Icecrown Citedel. She had watched the Argent Crusade and the Knights of the Ebon Blade finally put aside their differences and combine their might in to a supposedly unstoppable juggernaut. During that time Gwen had received an odd summons from Jaina Proudmoore. It seemed that Jaina had found a chink in the Citadel’s defenses and wanted her to be part of the strike force she was leading to go after Arthas. Turns out Arthas knew about it, and was expecting them. Only a handful of them escaped to the airship alive, the rest ended up as servants of the Lich King.

But that was all in the past. Now she languished by a small fire on the banks of the river that ran through Crystal Song Forest. She was occupying herself with preparing a variety of fish to be served as a feast for friends and comrades alike. As she looked up, a smile played across her lips as she watched Sushi and Devilicious going after a school of glacial salmon. That’s  when she felt it again. The warmth spreading from the sigil in her pocket. It was more intense that the last time, signaling an urgency that was new to a Duranub summons.

A menacing growl suddenly escaped Sushi as the spirit beast swung its massive head skyward. As Gwen gazed skyward towards Dalaran she clicked her tongue twice, hearing the command Sushi stopped growling and vanished from sight with a bright flash.

Looking towards the great black lizard, she gave a sharp whistle calling Devilicious to her side. As the lizard stomped out of the water to her side, she caught the flapping of giant leathery wings in the distance. Turning her head back and forth, she finally pinpointed the direction of the flapping. She quickly closed her eyes and envisioned the acutely accurate eyes of an eagle. With a snap her eyes flew open, sharply focused distant sound.Her eyes quickly focused on a purple protodrake closing the distance at a high rate of speed. As she reached for her crossbow, she refocused on the figure mounted on the drake’s back. Gwen relaxed her hand as she closed her eyes, feeling slightly dizzy as her vision readjusted itself back to normal.

Belghast was coming. Now that was something new, usually if Bel needed to contact someone, he would send Thalen or one of the other officers. With a gust of forced wind, the drake landed about fifty feet down the bank from the small camp, she was able to make out the clacking and clanking of Bel’s armor as he jumped down from his drake. As he walked towards the small campfire, a cold wind whipped down from the glacier to the north.

"Gwen."

"Bel."

She reached down to the to prepare a plate of fish for him, as he lower himself down by the fire.

"So what brings you you down here on this lovely day Bel?", Gwen asked while she reached over to toss Devil a fresh fish.

"If you would’ve answered the summons we’ve been sending you, you’d have known by now. Bel replied through a mouth full of fish.
Slowly she reached down, and picked up another fish. She casually flicked her wrist, sending the fish into the air with a click of her lounge. In a sudden flash of light Sushi appeared, catching the fish in midair, and landing next to with a happy purr.

"So the assault on Arthas has begun then?" she asked as she scratched Sushi behind the ears.

"Yes, we’re expected to go in full force, seeing as the sneak attack didn’t work out so well." Replied Bel sadly.

Gwen just sat there digesting  everything that Bel had told her, along with everything that had happened. She could feel Bel staring a her waiting for her reply. "Alright, when do we leave?" Gwen asked in a tired voice.

"In two days, we’re meeting at the Ledgermain. It’s good to have you and your ‘friends’ with us again Gwen." Belghast said with a smile.

He then stood up and walked slowly to his drake. Gweninu watched as he mounted the drake and took off back for Dalaran. with a heavy sigh, she looked down at Sushi and finally spoke. "Soon. Soon it will all be over fuzz ball and we can head to warmer climates," she said with a smile.
