Originally I was planning to do a dungeon escape scene to tie-in with the last GC, but after picking up a bunch of trans-blue studs in the PAB at my local Lego store, I decided to jump ahead to them sailing away from the Royal Island...
Jaykob awoke to the gentle sway of the sea, and the distant call of a seagull. The sun was high in the sky but the air was cooled by the sea breeze.
"He's waking up!" yapped the familiar voice of Happy, Jaykob's lenfel cousin. Jaykob stirred groggily "Where are we?" he asked, disoriented by the rocking of the boat and his spinning head.
"We're going home!" his cousin replied excitedly. "But.. but what about the coronation... Queen Galainir..." Jaykob inquired, his head still foggy. Gradually his memory cleared. He remembered unloading the barrels, seeing a giant cake, getting mixed up with the other coronation guests and then his memory went hazy again.
"You were captured Jaykob! An army invaded the castle and took everyone prisoner. You must have got a bump on the head in all the commotion" Happy recalled for his groggy Garhim companion, "Then Ues helped us escape".
It was only now Jaykob became aware of the stoic looking lenfel ranger steering their small boat as it cut swiftly through the waves "He's been following us since Illianaro Jaykob. My brother sent him, and good job too!" * http://www.flickr.com/photos/andhe/9040584273/
"But... how did we escape the castle?" Jaykob asked. "Well..." Happy began "...after Ues found me hiding behind that giant cake, we went to look for you in the dungeons. I suggested knocking out a guard and stealing their uniform... but Ues insisted on using 'stealth'..." Happy answered, seemingly disappointed at his missed opportunity to be a hero. "As it turned out most of the guards were drunk or already unconscious anyway, so it wasn't that hard really..."
The Lenfel ranger remained unmoved by the discussion, one hand on the sail, the other on the rudder, staring into the sky every now and then to make minor adjustments.
"Ues is going to sail you back to the coast of Garheim, then we will continue down to Lenfald" Happy continued, his voice beginning to show his sadness "It's been a fun trip Jaykob, but I fear that dark times are ahead for Roawia".
Jaykob looked out to sea as the boat continued steadily forward to the Garhim coastline, sped by the cool breeze "I think there's always hope on the horizon Happy" he responded, "There is always hope".LCC - New Horizons
, on FlickrThis brings the first voyage of Jaykob Tannerson of Garheim to a close. I signed up for LCC back in January and Jaykobs been on the road since then. I had originally intended to take him to Loreos but Global events deemed otherwise. After a brief break for CCCXI and some other things, Jaykob will hopefully return in the new year, older and wiser .
Less talking, more MOCing.
