Swamped Chapter 69 Page 15

Something seems odd here. You wonder if something happened involving Rider and the Church of Reth – it’s not as though you know much about his history. That was, after all, one reason you were hoping to talk to him.

But you can’t exactly bring it up in front of this priest. Probably best to just go along with it for now.

That said, there’s something that’s been bothering you.

“There were two intruders who attacked the grebling camp yesterday,” you say. “Did you have anything to do with that?”

“Not me personally,” says the priest. “I only arrived here early this morning. Can’t say they didn’t send someone else before me, though – if it’s sensitive enough, they wouldn’t tell me about it.”

That’s probably all you’re getting on that subject. You look at Rider.

“So what should we do?”

“I think it would be best if we left him in Jebediah’s care,” Rider says. “You understand that, after what’s happened, we can’t simply let you walk free. But we can leave you under the supervision of a fellow priest of Reth.”

The grebling looks very nervous, but nods weakly.

“Suppose I can’t blame you for that.”

“Well, then,” Rider says. “Marshall, I’ll help you secure our guest, and then I’ll take us back. I’m afraid we’ll need to delay our talk a bit longer.”

You can’t say you’re all that surprised.

You’re now Corvus, and you’re in the middle of something unpleasant.
