Long Flight to Nowhere

Come, Asa. Go, Asa. We’re going to fly over some horrible mountains, Asa.

The young master was running all over the city for an entire week, while I watched from the sky. Several people followed him, but none got close. Even when he ran around by himself. Leaving me in the sky. I can protect him better from there anyway. He’s not really a mounted fighter, though not unskilled at staying astride.

Thank goodness, because after summoning me and then ignoring me for a week, he and all his friends decide to fly over a mountain range. Such a strange place, swirling winds, not a small number of creatures looking to feast on the unwary. And landing, on sharp, jagged rocks. I’m glad I didn’t have to stay with them at night. There was not a single comfortable place to roost.

Then, when we finally reach the destination, after flying through a disgusting miasma, he dismisses me, again! Too dangerous, he says. Young master, I am not merely a taxi! If you wanted that, you should have gotten a horse.

Asa’s lucky he didn’t have to come in here. Disgusting creatures crawling all over the place. And the screaming…
