Part 26 by Emily

The Nurgans tied Tomas up so tight he could hardly breathe. One particularly scaly one carried him over his shoulder. They hiked up the mountain, taking him who-knows-where to do who-knows-what to him. They talked in words and riddles that Tomas couldn't understand. He hated his situation, but he was glad he did what he did to save Kyrian. Even if he died in the Nurgan's claws he would have saved the girl he loved. 

The Nurgans went ever higher up the mountain until they were enveloped in mist. He wiggled just enough to dislodge a small musical pipe, it fell to the ground with little noise. The Nurgan uttered a harsh noise and Tomas stopped wiggling. The Nurgan's entered a cave and walked for what seemed to Tomas an eternity. Upon stopping the Nurgan dumped Tomas off his shoulder. He landed in a heap on the stony ground, his head banged against a rock. Bursts of pain shot through his body. And the last thing he saw was a snarling black face.

"Thanks again Mintara." Kyrian said. She just couldn't believe the wizard was coming with her on her little quest, so she told Mintara thank you every few minutes. "Silly girl." Mintara muttered. Oh, great. Kyrian thought, That's my pet name.  Kyrian's tracking skills had brought them this far, but before there was a thin layer of dirt on the mountain. Now all there was, was rock. She sat there for a few minutes, trying to decide the next plan of action. They wouldn't be able to follow footsteps left by the monsters, like they did earlier. Kyrian thought long and hard for a moment, then she got it! She scoured the area for any sign of wild life. A sparrow lit upon a tree. She rode forward, "Don't be afraid little one." she said sweetly. The bird looked at her, it's beady eyes shining with danger. "I won't hurt you." She dug in her pouch for some grain, and took out a handful.  "I have a reward for you if you can help me." The bird chirped nervously. "I would like to know if you have seen an Nurgans. Have you seen any?" The sparrow, tilted its head to the side and chirped again. "What do they look like? Well they are large creatures, that are as black as a moonless night. Their eyes are pale and large. They have lumps and spikes coming from their bodies. Some have wings that are so sharp on the tips, a mere graze can spill your blood. They speak in riddles,they are what little children wake up in the night screaming about. That is what a Nurgan looks like."  The bird's little eyes went wide with fear, it sang out. "Thank you noble sparrow." Kyrian poured the grain on a rock, the sparrow hopped down and started pecking at it. It warbled an many other birds started to come and eat.

Kyrian motioned to Mintara. They rode up the mountain for a few minutes with out talking. "The sparrow said the Nurgans come here quite often. They use this place as a hide out, or something like it. It told me that they go high up in the mountain, past where the mist starts." Kyrian explained. The pair continued up the mountain. It began to get cold and misty. "It can't be long now." Kyrian said. The mist got thicker, and they could barely see a few feet in front of them. Kyrian dismounted off of Rhovanion, and a thump a yard or two away from her told her that Mintara did the same. Oh what will we do? Kyrian wondered. She led Rhovanion forward, until her foot hit something. It's just a rock. She thought. But she felt the urge to pick it up and look at it. To her amazement it was a musical pipe! "Mintara!" she yelled,"Come quick!" In an instant Mintara was at her side. "It's a pipe." Mintara said.
"Not just any pipe." Kyrian corrected, "It's Tomas's pipe. He must of dropped it when the Nurgans were caring him off! We can be far away!" Kyrian sprinted up the hill in front of her, pulling Rhovanion against her will. Rhovanion refused to go up it, Kyrian jerked at the bridle. Rhovanion pulled away, causing the bridle to be jerked from Kyrian's hands. She fell and gashed her knee on a rock. Rhovanion bolted down the mountain, with frenzied neighing. Mintara vanished, Kyrian moaned, then heard a rock clatter behind her. Then a hand came over her mouth, and another around her waist. She tried to scream but couldn't. She tore at the hand over her mouth, it just caused the one around her waist to be pulled tighter. She felt herself be lifted off the ground. Her captor carried her into a cave. After a going down a long hallway, she was dumped into a cell.

She fell face down on the cold earth. Her palms scraped on the rough floor, and started to sting. Her knees gash started bleeding again. The door to the cell closed shut, she lifted her head off the ground. With the little bit of light that came through the cracks in the door, she could see a body lying beside her. Blood was matted in it's hair. Kyrian wasn't so sure if it was alive or dead. She rolled over and sat up, to get a better look at the body. She gasped. It was Tomas!
