Part 91: Sirocco: Update snuh
Sirocco's Year: Part Twenty-Five
My first priorities of course are to complete the gazebo, build the concert hall, and block all the egresses Eiba dotted around the mountain.
This time I'll add a green room.
My next agenda on the list involved dealing with a small sand raider incursion...
I took tehsid and Male Man with me to take them out before they could sweep through the fortress.
It didn't take long. tehsid came up to me afterwards as I was polishing my hammer.
'How... how did you know they were there?!'
'Just a hunch,' I said, not looking up.
'No... no you knew they were there somehow. On THIS side of the mountain at THIS time. You've... you've changed somehow, Sirocco. Tell me what's going on.'
I got up from the rock I'd been sitting on and swung my hammer into its strap.
'It's destiny,' I said, and walked away.
'I don't believe in destiny!'
'Yes you do,' I said turning round. 'You just don't know it yet.'
'You just pulled that out your arse didn't you?'
'It'll make more sense after you've seen the next two seasons.'
I walked back to the gatehouse, leaving tehsid to scratch his head in puzzlement.
