"I'll go with you."

Kateth nodded.

"Which Sentinel is it?"

"Zasfeer."

"He's the wisest among all of the Sentinels. Surely he knows the difference between good and bad enough to not kill two innocent beings." Jahki mounted his horse.

"He does." Kateth mounted his horse. "But he's also an animal who hasn't eaten in four years."

"That's a very good point." He vaguely waved a finger towards Kateth before steering his horse out of the stable doors. "We better hurry then."

Kateth nodded.

The ride through the forest was practically silent save for the sounds of the horses hooves slamming against the ground in an effort to arrive at the scene in time.

"How much farther until we reach Zasfeer?" Jahki asked, his horse matching Kateth's horses speed.

"We're near." Kateth answered. He could sense Zasfeer growing nearer and neared to them as they rode. 

"What if we're too late?"

Kateth remained silent for a moment, his mind recalling that he had already asked himself this question. He needed to stop Zasfeer from killing whoever it was that he had cornered, and then he needed to find out what had awakened him. "I pray that we aren't." He answered.

The sounds of loud growling filled Kateth's ears, making him pull up on the reigns, Lord Jahki slowing beside him as well.

Kateth jumped down from his saddle. "Stay here; he doesn't need another target."

"Alright," Jahki remained on his horse.

Kateth ran through the trees, carefully following both the sounds of Zasfeer's loud growling and his senses. He slowed, his eyes searching the area around him. Then, far ahead of him, he saw the large grey lion pacing back in forth in front of the two people that he had cornered.

Kateth broke into a run, tearing for the scene before it was too late. He jumped over branches, avoided the roots of trees, his boots scattered fallen leaves and dust flew behind him after each step. He ran past the two individuals, not daring to make any contact with them. He placed himself between them and Zasfeer, the large lion. He slid to a stop with his hand held out towards the lion, shouting, "Zasfeer, stop!"

The lions form shifted into a straighter position as his cold blue eyes stared directly at Kateth, who was breathing heavy from running. After a long pause, Zasfeer laid himself down on the ground and let out one last, low, growl as Kateth lowered his arm.

Strangers. Seer. 

Those were the only two words that Zasfeer allowed into Kateths mind. Lady Delphia had only spoken of two Seers. A dark Seer, and a pure Seer. Which stood behind him?
