Hey everybody! I know it's been a while since I updated last and I want to apologize to the people who want me to add the next chapter. I have recently had a lot of problems with the family computer. I have also been extremely busy with school, swim practice, and camp. I recently found out that Alison Croggon (the author of the Pellinor books) is writing another book. This one is going to be about Cadvan's life before he met Maerad.

Disclaimer: I do not own the four books of Pellinor, they belong to Alison Croggon.

Chapter 6

Hem rushed into the room and looked around. After searching the room for ten minutes and managing to knock over just about everything that was tied down, he turned to Saliman with a look of dismay on his face.

"You said there was candy in here!" Hem whined.

"Yes, well, I lied." Saliman said just as Silvia walked into the room and let out a small shriek.

"What did you do?" she yelled.

"Hem, I believe she is talking to you." Saliman said, glaring at Hem.

"Don't give me that look, I didn't mean to mess everything up." Hem retorted.

"I've spent the past three days in here setting all this up. I can not believe you ruined all of that hard work in less than ten minutes!" Silvia exclaimed.

"Well, I'm sorry!" Hem yelled then headed for the door.

"You come back here and clean everything up now, Hem!" She screamed.

"No!" He ran out the door with Silvia on his heels.

Ok, so I know this chapter is short, but I'm going to try to update more often. Thanks to all of the reviews I got telling me to update faster…;) MDM
