Back Off

  • After making it a little distance from the Eerie, Damocles attacks Echo, knocking her out in a single strike.
  • Zafir and the Anointed turn, furious. Damocles is unrepentant, explaining that without the Shadow Lord around, the Soul Stitcher will return and make Echo violent again. Keeping her unconscious is the only way to keep her pacified.
  • Zafir is unconvinced, and they nearly attack each other. Brea and Ezra hold him back, while Padric and Rook keep Damocles from fighting.
  • Shayliss tells them all to shut up and threatens everyone with imprisonment who tries to get violent. Getting back to Greyhaven is the only thing that matters now.
