He is coming.
Andarinas woke with sweat beaded on his forehead. The vision was intense, gripping him in the midst of his dreams. He felt cramped in his small quarters for the first time. He sat down to write and his quill moved with the weightlessness of one used to recording his observations:
I have seen the signs. A boy and a dragon running in a field. As they ran, the boy grew into a young adult, a year for each stride. They were laughing. The ground was cold and the boy wore no shoes, but he didn’t seem to notice in his joy. The ground beneath the two fell away, but the boy hopped onto the dragon’s back. They flew, and it looked like they could find footing when there was none to be found. In the horizon, they merged into one being.
In an instant, my sight was dark. There was thunder and screaming. I smelled fear before hearing footsteps. Millions of footsteps and absolute chaos. I saw people trampling others, running from a charred chasm. Then, I saw chains. So many chains tied together that it was impossible to see the beginning. But a king was there. I saw a tremor begin in the chains but I did not see them break. That means uncertainty. That means there is much to be done.
Andarinas slammed the book shut, tucked it under his arm, and left his room so suddenly that his door was left swaying.
