|A Reason to Fight
Author: Meridas PM
Years of peace have passed since the Judgment War.

Author's note: so this will be the longer FE story I sorta promised. Try not to fly into a rage if (when) I don't update regularly (jk). So fyi it's set after the events of Radiant Dawn, several years after Ike and Soren left Tellius. And... the rest we'll figure out as we go along. So, onward bravely into the realm of the longer story. Feel free to review.

Micaiah frowned slightly as she read the letter. "Sothe," she began, "could you do something for me?"
He looked up. "Of course."
"I need Edward, Leonardo, and Nolan… he's still here in Nevassa, isn't he? I want to see them all tomorrow, if possible."
"Yeah, they're all here ," Sothe assured her. "Sure, I'll get them together…" he paused. "What for?" He hadn't asked her who the letter was from, but his eyes lingered on it as if he knew that it was the cause for the sudden reunion. Normally Micaiah loved to see their friends, but she didn't summon them to her.
She looked up at him, her eyes a little unfocused as she thought. "Well… I — will you let me explain it later, to all of them?"
"Sure," he nodded. "No problem." As he left, Micaiah sat down at her desk and pulled writing utensils toward her. She worked steadily for several minutes, copying out the summons to Laura and Aran, Fiona of Marado, and Jill and Haar of Talrega. She called a messenger to her and send the boy off with the letters.
Then she sat with her chin in her hand, staring unhappily at the letter she herself had received from King Kurthnaga of Goldoa that morning. Normally she enjoyed Kurth's letters — but not this one. This one was grim yet devoid of real information. Micaiah couldn't understand it.
She leaned her head back and closed her eyes. "What's going on?" she whispered to the empty room. She bit her lip. She'd had a dream the night before, a dream carrying the flavor of a vision. Micaiah hadn't heard from Yune in a while: things in Daein and Tellius had been going so well.
She sighed again and opened her eyes. "Something's going to happen, Sothe," she murmured to the familiar presence behind her.
His hand fell on her shoulder, a warm and comforting weight. "Whatever it is," he reminded her, "you're not alone."
She reached up and touched his fingers, nodding slightly. "Good."
PS: horrendously short, I know. Many apologies. Please be willing to accept compensation in the form of longer, cooler chapters at a later date.
