There’s Nothing In This World I Wouldn’t Do: Pt. 12

15 Jul

Last time, the four elves met Unia Wennemein, the mother of Shani and Wren at the Durmond Priory.  Here, she announced she’d remain on Tyria for the duration of the elves stay.

Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

lyrics from Hallelujah, as performed by Leonard Cohen

Fort Salma

It didn’t take too long. Shani and Wren helped Unia get her things together and moved into one of the smaller homes on the outskirts of Fort Salma. A place that faced the open fields. She did seem rather upset that there was such hostilities between the humans and centaurs, but Pania helped her understand the history of it.

Unia refused to wear one of the broaches to conceal her heritage, and chose to wear her hood when mingling in the market. She actually became quite endearing to the townsfolk, helping with any leatherworking repairs and even giving advice to some of the new mothers (which she’d share a story about Shani or Wren, much to their embarrassment).

Abisayo helped expand the paddock and stables where the horses were tended. Unia’s horse right away became the den mother, keeping the others in line. Much like Unia herself, her horse had a wisdom about her.

Within a few months, Unia had become just as much a part of Fort Salma as the other four had become.
