"Are we being followed?" Lexino asked.

Zedd shook his head, "Not followed, there is someone ahead. I don't want to be seen until I'm sure of who they are. You never know who you might run into during wartimes, lad," the Wizard took the lead.

Within a few minutes, they were wholly out of the woods and into a grassland. Zedd led them in a rather exaggerated route that gave something or someone a wide berth.

Kara wondered if it might be one of her sisters that the wizard was avoiding. Not that it mattered, she'd be killed or worse for being captured by the wizard. The again, it looked like she would die either way.

Zedd generally was disinterested in spending time in nowhere any longer. He needed get to get back to the war.

He'd had an idea on what Panis's next move might be. If he was right, he needed to conjure some way of stopping it.

Lexino paused in the group's marching and wondered exactly *why* he was going with them. It would probably be easier and better for all concerned if he turned around and left. And, not only that, why exactly he was pointing an arrow at the head of a girl he barely knew and certainly had no reason to hate. He was doing it because Zedd had said so.

The more he thought on it, the more sense his decision made. They didn't need him. He was a random tagalong. As soon as it turned dark, he'd go on back to the forest and live more or less like he always had.

Kara noticed the absence of the arrow and paused and to look at him. She didn't even try to run. Part of herself called her a fool for not taking advantage of his his distracted state. She knew she couldn't get away though. zedd would burn her to a crisp.

"Is something wrong?" she asked, ears and eyes alert in case he'd caught something that she hadn't.

Zedd frowned, not just at the boy's foolishness, or the fact the Mord-Sith could have made a break for it.

He lost the people. Magic was at work, he'd been deceived. Almost too late, he dropped flat to the ground. An arrow flew right over where he had been standing.

A score or more of men then jumped out of the tall grasses, crossbows, armor and swords, all of them. They were ambushed.

"BAGS!" Zedd cursed as he pushed himself up and backed away from the enemy.

Lexino cursed and fired several arrows in rapid sucession, each one finding a target.

Kara dove out of the way as an arrow almost hit its mark. She jumped to her feet weaponless. She shoved Lexino out of the way as a crossbow bolt found its way into her shoulder. She didn't pause, she stumbled towards zedd for her Agiel. These men were out to kill her too, or worse, if she didn't fight them.

Lexino's arrows faltered in the end. The D'Harans were armored as much as they were armed, and his arrows did not pierce the finely forged links of mail each of them wore, or the dark iron battle masks they all had, nor did they account for the hardened war leather that each man was clad in, emblazoned with that hateful R. R for Rahl.

Zedd cursed again, the boy had no practical means of fighting D'Harans! They men lived for war, they were all easily twice as thick as the young man. His aim, however, was beyond reproach. Once they got him some metal arrows...

The situation at hand, Zedd managed to assess the numbers they were faced with. Twenty-three. Armored D'Harans. They had to recognize him as a Wizard, did they really think they could...?

The surprise attack, the misleading magic. They knew. Did they have more? Was there a Wizard with them?

Zedd was too distracted with catching the bolts as they flew toward him and Lexino to consider it much longer. Wizard of the First Order he may be, fatal was fatal.

He raised a hand and pure concussion radiated out from it. The men who ran toward him were now on the ground. Zedd scowled as he raised his hand again, this time for Wizard's Fire.

The blue and yellow liquid flame flew from his hand eagerly seeking the targets the Wizard willed it too. The tortured screams of men burning to death did nothing to settle his mind. He drove it until he felt each of their lives extinguish, melting away skin and bone.

He noted Kara moving toward him, he pushed her away from him when she groped for her Agiel, "Back, D'Haran scum!"

Kara swore as she hit the ground. She saw the fallen D'harans erupting in flames and froze. Her fear of fire had not left her. She stared at the dancing flames and the wizard who had created them, and waited for him to do the same to her. Her eyes were wide as she clutched her bleeding shoulder. The bold had found a bone and not her vein, so at least there were no worries of bleeding out.

She took a hit for me, Lexino thought, startled. Why? He stumbled to get out of the way, still in shock over the battle.

Zedd used magic to rip the arrow out of her shoulder, sparing her no pain. He didn't take pleasure in it, but he didn't exactly feel inclined to lavish her in kindness either. Her countrymen had almost put a bolt in his back, after all. He supposed healing her would be the only humane thing to do, however.

Without much gentleness, he put a hand on her shoulder, despite how obviously uncomfortable it was. He healed the wound, although it hurt him, and then he felt some other pains he didn't expect. When he was done, he looked at her differently than before.

"What did Panis do to you?" he muttered too quiet for her to hear. He put the pain behind him, it wasn't his to live with, he merely shared it for a moment's time.

He now spoke more loudly, "I am sorry, Lexino. They wear armor too heavy for hunting arrows. When we find a blacksmith, I will buy you arrows with killing tips. Are you injured, I can tend to your wounds as well."

Kara stared up at zedd. She flinched at his touch, but instead of frying her, he healed her. She was puzzled, by this. She'd thought for sure he would kill her. What puzzled her more was the look he gave her when he was done.

She wasn't even sure why she'd pushed Lexino out of the way. She supposed that if they hadn't killed her they'd have brought her back to Rahl. Panis's son would not have been pleased and when he'd finished with her, she would've been ordered to train him. This boy, who knew nothing of the world he lived in or the war raging in it.

"I'm, uh, I'm mostly fine," Lexino said. He hadn't been hit for which he was extremely grateful.
