Wolves and Dragons of the Blood: Revelations
DARASTRIXETHE (DRAGONBLOOD) SPACE
LIVAIJI SULEVFU FACILITY
Robati and Yokra were just sitting down to a small dinner when the open area beside the table suddenly lit up and both of them came to their feet in shock as the image of Androcles appeared next to their table. The image shimmered for several seconds and then became as clear as if he was standing in the room with them. Robati gripped Yokra's hand in shock and they watched as his head and eyes searched for several seconds and then focused on them.
“Sia Sepa dask vur Opsola…” Andro spoke as he bowed his head slightly out of respect. “Forgive me for causing you such a start.” (My soul mother and father)
“Androcles!” Robati exclaimed softly. “Ithquenti usja! You frightened me half to death!” (Gods lad)
Yokra was quicker on the uptake as a former military man and he knew immediately that something had caused Andro to contact them directly. They had spoken to him several times over these last weeks, Dorian, Elynth and Ryner as well, and he and Robati both had grown very fond of them and done so very quickly. It was as if they had always known them and seen them grow. It felt as if they were part of their family and had been for centuries. Even their sons had commented on how much they felt at ease with the four of them.
“Androcles… what is wrong?” Yokra spoke causing Robati to look at him in surprise. “You would not contact us directly unless something has changed.”
“It is time Sepa Opsola.” Andro told him.
Yokra became instantly alert. And concerned. “Jaka sia sepa deevdru!?” He gasped now. “The plan was to wait another week!” (Now my soul son)
Andro shook his head. “I have concluded what we had to do here and we are already in route to the station. There is… something within Dorian, Elynth, Ryner and I says for you to move now. We do not question our instincts.”
“Do you think we have been discovered?” Yokra asked.
Andro shook his head once more. “We cannot determine what it is we feel, but we sense that things have changed where you are. If they have not discovered you, then someone is getting close. Closer than we would like. We have spoken with Laren and Ladur already and they are informing Koppentotz Em’morr. I need you and our soul mother to inform the others. You have three hours.”
“Three hours!” Robati exclaimed.
“Sepa Opsola, you must erase any trace that you were ever there before you leave that place.” Andro spoke. “You understand what I am saying yes?”
Yokra nodded his head. “Yes.”
“We have sent probes ahead of our ship.” Andro told him. “They will reach the station in two days. Once you arrive in three days they will be waiting for you in the landing bay closest to the command center. You will also find five Pralor Worker drones already there on site. They will be scanning the station for any devices that someone may have left behind. Leave them to their work.”
“I understand.” Yokra spoke as Robati moved up beside him and pressed against him.
“The probes will have uniforms and equipment inside them for Laren, Ladur, you and our soul mother.” Andro explained. “Also for General Dytin and Dalis as well as Koppentotz Aviel and his mate Nahko. I need you to insure this is given to them for each set will contain specific information for each of them and the armor has been made explicitly for them. The other thirteen sets of armor give to those you trust the most. Bring no more than twenty Sepa Opsola. That is all the equipment we were able to put inside the probes.”
Yokra nodded. “It will be done.” He spoke.
“Anything you cannot carry with you… destroy.” Androcles continued. “You will need nothing once you are among us. None of you will. I cannot stress enough that everything having to do with Laren and Ladur and yourselves must be purged from the facility you are in now Sepa Opsola. Everything. No matter how minor it seems. If it has to do with them or anyone helping them it must be disposed of.”
“You are concerned sepa deevdru?” Yokra picked up on that in his voice.
Andro nodded his head. “As I said, we do not know what it is we feel, but it tells us to have all of you get out now.”
“You are Dahakoan.” Yokra said. “This is part of what you are Androcles.”
“I know…” Andro answered. “I’m still learning how to come to grips with that.”
“It is destiny sepa deevdru.” Robati spoke now.
Andro chuckled softly. “I do not like when destiny does not give me a straight answer however.” He said causing both of them to laugh gently.
Their conversations with Androcles and all six of his wives and mates these last weeks had been enlightening to say the least. They had spoken to all of Androcles’ wives and mates but they most enjoyed speaking with Sadi, Ne'Veha and Sehri. The three of them were the most physically beautiful to Yokra and Robati and the most open with their thoughts and feelings. All of his wives were incredibly intelligent and beautiful but they suspected that Carisia, Lu'ria and Caliria were rather introverted and more tightly held to their feelings. It was Sadi and Ne'Veha who were the most open and pleasant and Sehri was simply a joy with her bubbly nature and infectious smile.
“What is it you feel Androcles?” Yokra asked. “Hold nothing back from us hesi sepa deevdru.” (Our soul son)
Andro met his eyes evenly. “We sensed death sepa opsola.” He answered. “If you do not leave within the next few hours there will be much death as a result. That is all we saw.”
“That is enough.” Yokra stated holding Robati tight. “We will make it so Androcles.”
Andro nodded his head in the transmission. “Then we will see you soon.” He spoke.
