The first sound that either one of them heard as they woke was the scraping of a chain on the stone floor. After a few heartbeats of stunned silence, they both remembered what had happened to bring them there. They both looked at each other. The erpon spoke first, believing that the human child would need some comfort.

He asked the boy’s name, and the boy answered, “Cor.”

“Demetrius,” the erpon soldier said, placing a hand upon his chest.


A human boy and an erpon soldier are imprisoned by a wizard and made to play a game to win their freedom.
