Tommy nodded and turned Trinity over to Heather.  "I'll go get him.  Stay here!"  He stood and bolted out the door, not looking back or at the dead body as he ran flat out back to his own house, weaving as he ran to make himself a harder target to catch.  He would get the general's Gryphon and tell it to fly home.  That should work.  It had to work.  It was the only way he could get to the palace.

Trinity put her head in her hands. The gryphon that had abandoned her before returned and crept over to her apologetically, his head lowered in shame

Taz reached the mountain peak that had become their base of operations away from home. Taz glided in as close to the ground as he could without landing and released Specialist Klem. Klem dropped, rolled, and bounced back up. Taz made a leisurely circle and landed back on the fallen tree that he had adopted as his perch.

Specialist Klem went over to Taz, climbed up the rope ladder, and petted and praised Taz. “Taz ol’ boy, you did great. I had wondered sometimes during training if you would ever get that ‘drop and pick up again’ routine right, but you did great today, just great.” Klem filled his haversack and climbed back down. He pulled out a packet, unwrapped it, and tossed the contents as high as he could. “There you are ol’ boy, your treat for today. You certainly deserve it.” Taz caught his treat and settled in to enjoy it.

Just then, General Sherman and Cump landed back on the mountain peak. After the General had also praised Cump and given him a treat, he walked over to Specialist Klem.

“Report,” the General barked.

Specialist Klem snapped to attention and saluted General Sherman. “Mission accomplished, Sir.”

“Excellent, excellent.” The General looked out into the expanse of sky. “At ease, son.”

Klem thought it almost looked like the General was smiling, but it was hard to tell with that mustache and beard. Klem waited patiently, knowing the General would speak when he was ready.

The General finally turned and put his hand on Specialist Klem’s shoulder. “You and Taz did great today, son. You followed orders without deviation; the mission went off smoothly, as planned; and the objective was completed. Good job.”

“Thanks, Uncle Billy.” Specialist Klem beamed and soaked in this praise from the General.

“Great as this is, our work is not done.” General Sherman patted Klem’s shoulder and then paced back and forth a few times before stopping in front of Specialist Klem again. “I want you to fly back home and report to Major General Thomas.”

General Sherman dug around in his haversack for his writing materials. “Give General Thomas this note requesting that he meet me here to discuss strategy.”

Specialist Klem packed up his haversack and turned to the General.

“Fly well, son,” the General said.

“Thanks, Uncle Billy. I will report back soon.” Specialist Klem climbed up into his basket; on his signal, Taz flapped and took off. After a circle, as if to say goodbye, Taz and Specialist Klem headed home.

General Sherman was still standing, looking in the direction that Taz and Specialist Klem had flown, when Cump gave the General a gentle nudge with his head. General Sherman absentmindedly patted him and sighed. Cump gave a sigh similar to the General. The General chuckled and took a step back. “Do you think waiting is as boring as I do old friend?” Cump rose up again.

“Let’s make a short reconnaissance run while we wait for the Major General.”

"Are you okay, Trinity?  You aren't hurt, are you?" Heather asked as she checked her forge.  The last she needed right now was for the place to catch on fire. 

~~

Tommy made it back to his home and talked the General's gryphon into coming out.  The gryphon was not exactly pleased with having Tommy climb on his back, but he tolerated it.  Going home was going home, after all, and home meant his own warm bed and treats!
Tommy held his breath as he clung to the gryphon's harness.  "Go home!  Go home!"
The Gryphon let out a shriek and took off.  Tommy almost swallowed his tongue as the gryphon bolted up into the sky.  Too high!  TOO HIGH!!  He leaned down and pressed his face into the feathers as the wind battered him mercilessly.  So cold... so cold...
By the time the gryphon landed at the Silver Gryphon's headquarters an hour later, Tommy was near unconsciousness.  His fingers locked into the leather harness, his skin pale from cold and moisture.

Trinity shook her head, "No, I'm not hurt. Is your shop ok?" She looked around her slowly

Kyan walked out with three guards behind him, "Tommy? What is wrong? Why are you riding the generals Gryphon?"

"It's going to need a little repair work, but it's still operational," Heather said, heaving a sigh of relief.  "Good thing, too.  I don't know what I'd do without my shop."

~~

Tommy tried to focus, his eyelids half frosted shut.  He had no training or gear for flying at high altitudes.  "G-g-g-gen-ner-ner-al sh-sh-sh-sh-ot-t-t-t," he stammered out through chattering teeth.  "Amp.  Bush."  Work, mouth, work!

Trinity nodded and got down on her hands and knees to help clean up the stones that had come inside, "This is terrible..." Anything to keep her mind off of the body outside

Kyan nodded, and barked orders to the guards. They returned with hot blankets, Kyan wrapped one around him and chaffed his hands, "Where, Your place?"

"I don't understand why this happened," Heather said heavily.
Sparks went and laid down in front of the entrance, hissing threateningly as he glared out.  Nothing was happening to his people!

"Heather Gleam's blacksmith," Tommy tried to explain, the warmth calming his violent shivers.  "There was an attack."

Trinity whimpered, "I just hope my brother gets here soon...."

Kyan barked an order and guards began assembling with their Gryphons. "Stay here and rest Tommy. Was anyone else hurt or was anyone else present?"

Tommy shook his head.  "No one else was hurt, but... your sister is there, and she's really scared.  Heather and her gryphon are looking after her."

Kyan stiffened, "Trinity!?" he swung up onto his Gryphon and said, "Thank you Tommy." then he swooped up into the sky with the rest of the guards behind him. They arrived at heathers shop a little while later and they all landed, "Trinity!" Kyan called, "Don't come out yet, but you are safe now."

Trinity breathed a sigh of relief, "My brother is here..."

Sparks shrieked as the strange gryphons landed.  He stood tall, his wings spread wide.  He hissed dangerously at the strangers, promising not to go down without a fight.
"Are you positive?" Heather asked, on high alert and suspicious of everything now.

Trinity nodded, "Thats his voice."
Kyan dismounted and walked over to where the body of the General lay. He knelt beside him and examined the wound with a frown. Two soldiers came and lifted the body onto the back of a spare gryphon.

Kyan walked up to the entrance of the forge, "Trinity?"

Heather went to Sparks and put a hand on his shoulder.  "Easy, Sparks.  Stand down.  Friends."
Sparks obeyed, but he stayed on guard, beak slightly open in warning.  He would attack at the first sign of agression.  He backed up when Heather urged him, allowing Kyan inside.
"Where's Tommy?" Heather asked worriedly.

(VC, have you noticed how many K characters you and I and SG have between this RP and Pangea?  It gets so confusing at times. Razz)

"The general's gryphon took him too high, he is resting at headquarters" Kyan said before going to scoop up his little sister gently, cradling her in his arms.
Trinity clung to her brother, her face buried in his shoulder

"What happened?  Why here?  How did they get so far inside our borders?" Heather demanded, fear making her angry.

Kyan shook his head, "I don't know. That is what I need to find out now. I will leave some guards here at your shop Heather, I do not think anyone will return but just in case..." He stood up, holding his little sister.

Heather caught Trinity's hand in a soft squeeze before stepping back.  "I will.  Now, if you see Tommy, scold him for me, will you?  Letting a gryphon fly so high..."

Kyan nodded, "I will, thank you Heather." He walked out and mounted his gryphon. After taking Trinity safely back to their home he continued on to the palace, requesting an urgent meeting with the Empress.

Several minutes later, an attendant padded up to Kyan and bowed.  "The Empress Livia has granted your request for an emergency meeting.  Please leave your weapons in a safe place and follow me."
