Here I am alive and well. This is my first shot at an Inheritance cycle fanfic. Leave a review telling me what I did right and what I did wrong.
"Kuldr, rïsa lam iet un malthinae unin böllr" Eragon muttered. He was kneeling and holding his hand out. The mark on his palm shone silver as he tapped into his mind to find power. He waited for a few seconds than nothing.
"Kuldr, rïsa lam iet un malthinae unin böllr" he repeated, opening his mind for a larger area for the spell to affect. Still nothing came. Groaning, he opened his mind even further to encompass an even wider area.
"Kuldr, rïsa lam iet un malthinae unin böllr," he said for the last time. Nothing came at all; he frowned then put his hand to his side as a wave of weariness took over him. Sensing disappointment and distress, Saphira nudged his consciousness with some worry.
Are you all right? She asked
Yeah, I guess so. I am just trying to find gold to get money for us so we can afford things like food just in case.
Who needs food when there is a hunter right above you? Eragon looked up and there she was in all her glory. She landed with a thud, her legs absorbing the impact.
I missed you, she said
Yeah, you too. Did you get anything?
No, there was nothing for miles around. It didn't look desolate but it was.They were approximately four leagues west of the Hadarac Desert. They wanted to head to the Boer Mountains to see the Dwarves and make battle plans to hopefully, lessen Galbatorix's forces to almost nothing and then strike at the capital itself. It seemed like a long shot but it might work.
Do you think our scheme would work even if we get defeated in an extremely one sided battle?We won't little one. We are the most powerful force in Alagäesia except for the king himself. He won't dare kill us unless we strike at him directly.
True. That didn't seem to ease the foreboding sense of defeat they could face when facing the king eventually. The sun was dipping low in the horizon when they finally stopped traveling. Saphira suggested a fire but was quickly opposed by her Rider. They argued for several minutes when Saphira finally just gave up. Satisfied, Eragon gnawed on a piece of hard cheese and vegetables. Ever since the Agaeti Blödhern, he hated the taste of meat and his own conscious forbade it. With his food done, he turned his thoughts over to Saphira.
Do you think Arya will return soon? Eragon asked
Without a doubt ,she is near. I touched her mind and she told me she was bringing a friend. She didn't say why though.
Ah, the best things are the most secret and surprising.Eragon smiled through the mental link and she smiled back. It has been a while hasn't it?
Only about a month, it hasn't been too long
I still miss her though; did she say who was bringing?
No, she never mentioned her name yet.
How far off?
About a league, Saphira closed the connection after she said the usual goodnight. Eragon slowly drifted off to sleep, gazing at the stars and wishing that he was back at Carvahall with his friends and relatives. He grimaced once he thought that he left his friends in Surda which is so different from Carvahall in so many ways. He left his thoughts at that and fell into a dreamless sleep.
Dawn broke over the plains as Eragon and Saphira decided that waiting for Arya will be better than moving. A good hour wait was ahead of them and they drifted to their own thoughts. I can't believe Arya is coming back Eragon thought with happiness. But why? Why would she go in such great lengths to find me?Why did she have a friend with her? About a million questions whirred through his mind a second. It was enough to make him have a slight headache. Ignoring the pain, he tried to answer the one question that seemed to avoid him. Why?
That question answered itself when he saw a very familiar person walk toward him, it was Arya.
"Arya!" He exclaimed as he ran up to her.
"Eragon," she said in a less excited way. Eragon halted a few feet away from her, something was wrong and apparently Saphira pointed it out too.
"What is wrong?" He asked with a hint of rage in his voice.
She looked solemn "Ellesméra has been destroyed".
"What!" He couldn't believe what he heard. How does that happen? How did it happen?
"Galbatorix's army came in sheer numbers; they numbered well over three thousand. Right away, his main force obliterated our forces at the front gates. We were severely outnumbered but we still hung on strong until the secondary forces came and wiped us out. Oromis and I thankfully escaped, taking this child with us. When we were traveling with her, she showed us this and we couldn't believe it at all. Uncover it please."
The girl obliged and took something covered out of her pack. She took the cloth off of the package and it was a dragon egg.
Bewildered, Eragon took a look at the egg. It was perfect, as was his dragon's egg. It was the color of jade green, and it was hollow
"Where did you get this?" He asked, suddenly serious.
"I-I don't know, it was on the ground so I picked it up," the girl stuttered.
"You need to keep it. It is more important then the whole of Alagaësia put together," his voice implied a tone of urgency. The elven girl nodded then put it back. "How bad was the damage?"
"Extremely bad, it will take us a couple of years to repair it. I fear that our race is almost extinguished," Arya said, her voice broke after that.
"Oromis is fine?"
"Yes, he is now traveling to Surda to meet up with the Carvahall group."
"Why is that?"
"He wants to prove to the world that there is more than one Dragon Rider in existence, maybe more than four." Eragon frowned, not pleased by the outcome of events, hoping that it doesn't get worse. He is wrong, it would only get worse.
"Come, we have stories to tell," Eragon said as he directed Arya to the center of the site. Preparing to interrogate her until she told him what else happened.
After that extremely annoying italics being bunched up problem, this is fixed. Not too sure about the ending. Somebody help me out
