Sa-id Chapter 2: Recruits
Chapter 2 – Recruits
With motivation, any equus makes a good soldier.  Foxes are best used in other ways. -Aquilius
Aquilius wondered what he was getting into.  This Sa'íd was a common street fighter who had never used a weapon in a fight.  He was an amateur.   His trade skills: read and write plans, work a forge, and craft objects of metal.  Valerian thought it would be amusing to watch him die in the arena at the paws – or hooves – of a real gladiator.  The Consul had laughed at the novelty of it all before signing the order to commute.
Aquilius did not believe in training his soldiers, or his gladiators, to die.  Here lay a challenge like no other.
Iridescent highlights danced in Aquilius' armor as he followed the Lynx.  “I want you moved to my stable today.”
Tail lashing, but otherwise appearing calm, Sa'íd answered him. “Well then, I'll take care of a few loose ends, rent a cart, and move in.  Where, exactly, are your quarters?”

Sa'id Chapter 5.1 - Eagle Pass
Aquilius stamped his hoof impatiently; Sa'id rolled in a bed of wildflowers.  “Sa'íd, what are you doing?”
“Picking up food.”  Sa'íd's fur was indeed matted with bits of flowers, leaves, sap, and who knew what else from rolling among the flowers for several minutes.
“If I wanted to graze on wildflowers, I would prefer them unsullied.”
Sa'íd jumped up and wrapped his paws around Aquilius' ears, smearing plant matter all over them. “Don't wipe it off.  It'll be worth it.  Hold very still 'til I return.  I'll be right back.”  With that, he dashed into a copse, thrashing about within.  Minutes later, he emerged, followed by a cloud of butterflies.  He stayed just ahead of them until he pounced on Aquilius' back, stood up on his hind paws, spread his arms, and held still.
“Alright, ready to go.  Walk slow and stately; you need the practice if you're going to be a patrician with an estate, after all.”  Aquilius turned his head, thin

The War for Griffnar - Part 32
Flying much lower and slower, Miranda and Bloodwing finally found the clue they were looking for; a group of trees that were badly damaged by something big falling from the sky. Miranda dismounted Bloodwing as soon as he landed, but what they found was rather disappointing. There was no trace of Falco. The only thing they did find, was a lump of carved stone; a piece of the gargoyle’s wing. It was also clear that somebody had been there before them. The place was covered in footprints. Weird footprints. A collection of simple peasant footwear, military boots, sandals and some even of bare feet. Barefoot in November? Had these people found him and taken him away, like they had collected all of the pieces of the gargoyle? And if so, as a guest or a prisoner? Questions without answers. And the only chance of finding answers, was to follow the footprints.
The tracks led them to a dirt road. There, they eventually spread out to both sides of the road. Trying to get some idea of where

A Wolf at War
Chapter 7: When a Wolf Howls in the Woods…
The next few weeks with the Hakansons were… uneventful to say the least, but I was grateful for every second.  I was happy to not be getting shot at and to have a peaceful place to shift and push the limits of my wolfish body.  After what had happened on the ship I experimented and it was true, I could transform only certain parts of my body.  Thankfully I hadn’t heard anymore voices in my head since that day on the ship, but I did have to dodge Katya and Sophia who seemed determined to drink my blood… though Sonya was quite nice to me.  I had slept quite well at the mansion, not having to worry about surprise attacks or would be murderers but one night in early April I had much difficulty getting to sleep.  Something just didn’t seem right, my wolf felt on edge all day but I wasn’t too worried, it had probably been because I had been cornered leaving the bathroom th
