The caves were dark like it was night.The path was small and the walls were too narrow.Meron was walking in front of Mel.Without the messaneger everything now lookes diffrent.Meron didnt like their gide at first but he now realised how important actuallu he was.
They were standing on two-way road.They didnt know what to do.Where to go nor what they will see?
A sound.A destine sound came from one of the ways.It didnt make any sense at the begining but then they hearded clearly.It was a cry of a baby.
The didnt think anymore but began to run through the tonnel...

They didn't think anymore but began to run through the tunnel towards where the sound of the baby came from! they came to a fork in the passace and so they decided to split up. "i'll go this way and you go that way" said Merlon. He felt so much braver than he had felt for a long time. Strenght flowed throught him as he had never felt before. There was something about the baby's soung that mage him feel powerful....

"Hurry,hurry"-a voice from inside was telling him all time time while he was running.He saw a sparcling light far from him,somewhere the tonnel was ending and where the baby was crying.He began to run faster ot he was thinking he was,but his didnt realise how weak he have become and that he wont have the strainght to fight a mostress creature if there was one there where the baby was crying.He light was growing as he was closing and at last he was there.A big room,full of candels and dark spell written all over the place.Three wizard in black robes were standing in the middle and in the circle they've made it was it-the baby.Small and innocent as notihing in this world could be and yet his destiny was not to see the daylight once again but to fall in to the shadows dorever where only darkness is what you see,where there is no happiness but only sadness.Who can do such thing?Who can take the life from such a small thing?
-I can-said a deep voice from behind...

Meron quickly span around to see who it was! Surprise took over him! It was someone who he had not expected to see!
"Mela" he whispered, not believing his eyes!
"yes! its is I! And much worse than this i have done!" she said with a smile on her face! then turning impatiend she said to the wizard opposite her "Bind him!"
The wizad, who was much taller than Meron and stronger picked him and threw him down into the darker corner of the cave! Meron could not see him any more but could feel him tying Meron's hands with a rope.
"Must...not...let...him....hilll....baby", Meron thought. He found it a struggle just to think. She was alos finding it very hard to breath! "Must...cause...a...diversion..."!
He had thought of a plan, but as he couldnt thing full, the plan seemed quite vague..... :eek:

The wizard was strong, but his main strength was in spells and enchantments, not in binding with coarse rope. In this was Meron's hope. He clenched his fists hard as the rope was being tied. The wizard, content that Meron was well bound, stepped away. Meron relaxed his hands. It worked! The rope was less tight, but he could still not remove his hands. He leant back against the hard rock. It was rough-hewn and dug into his back like blades.

"Blades!" he thought. "The walls are flint."

Hope rose again in his heart as Mela chanted dark incantations over the helpless baby. A fire was lit in an iron basket before the altar. Meron did not dare to think what its purpose was. Instead he shifted his hands to find a jagged piece of flint close enough to work the rope against.

Time was running out.

But time served him and he found that the cords loosened enough to get his hands free.

His one thought was to not let Mela see that he was loose, but he needn't have worried. Mela had not seen his actions, her spell kept her mind focused.

However, in the darkness behind the altar, a flicker of movement caught his eye. There was a shimmer of metal and then movement directly behind her...

Meron watched, the tension of the moment left him without will to move.

It was the stranger that took them in this cave.The one that have disapeared on the next day leaving just the moon dust.Now he was standing there with a sword and a shield made of gold.He ran towards Mela like he have have always wanted it to do it.The blade stab her in the heart and there at in the cave where she was hoping to find only hapiness of what she was about to do she found nothing else but death for what she have done.Mela was lying on the ground and everything around her was in blood.The other wizards looked at her with horror in their eyes.They made a spell and teleport from this place at once leaving the baby and what have happend behind in the past.
Meron stepped foward but he didnt even have the strainght to talk.

When the wizards disappeared and Meron realized he was alone, he turned to look at the child.

Lying in her blankets next to the body of Mela, surrounded by blood - she was surprisingly quiet.

Meron walked slowly over to her and bent down. She turned her head and looked at him and he was shocked at the intelligence that radiated from her green eyes. As clear as if it was spoken beside him, he heard a small, quiet voice say in his mind, 'Pick me up.'

He lifted her into his arms and took her out into the cold dawn.

"What should i do now?"he thought.He was alone in a dark cave with a child in his hands.A cold wind came from nowhere and the hall was captivated with coldness.
"Take me to Kemeron."
Meron heard the same quite voice and he realise now that he was hearing the child's thoughts."But how is that possible?"Meron could realised it but he havnt got time for thinking now.He saw a sparkel from one of the tunnels and he ran against it.Soon he was the light at the end and he was out sooner than he expected.The child was freezing,his horse was gone and now he didnt have a transport to Kameron.He took of his leather jacket and put it around it.He have never taken care of a child before and he felt so fulish.
"Dont worry.I'll be fine"
The same voice.How is this possible.Then suddenly in the sky something big flew.Meron looked up.
