Glad you could join us for the next confusing episode of Elliot’s Adventures. If you’re new here, you can catch up by returning to the beginning, and reading really fast…
Janesse filled Prince Elliot in on the current situation in central Fen and left him in a hastily organized camp surrounded by lush greenery far enough inside the Northern border that he couldn’t hear the fighting. A young soldier named Philbin showed him to the empty command post and volunteered to answer any questions he might have.
“Why did the King send for me?” Elliot asked.
“I don’t know,” Philbin admitted. “That’s above my pay grade.”
“Are there any officers I could talk with right now?”
The soldier looked around. “I don’t see any.”
“Where is the supply distribution area?”
“It’s around here someplace,” Philbin said.
Elliot rubbed his temples. “Might I get something to eat while I wait?”
