Chronicles of Khaldun: Crux of Eternity

Unfinished Business, Part 5.1

Earthday, Flocktime 13, 553 CY (51 AN)

Bosabrieln finds himself surprisingly nervous when he broaches the subject of his daughter with Vianibrar. (For his part, Vianibrar is blasé about the prospect of Bosabrieln having a child. Or really having children in general.) Still, as Bosabrieln’s only real family, he agrees to meet her. Just in case something happens when they confront the Khan of Nightmares.

Making arrangements with Bezaldooz, they teleport to Dawnslight. They are well-received by Kevian and Araatris, and Bosabrieln makes introductions all around. The afternoon is pleasant and the conversation is lively as Kevian and Araatris serve them stew. Bosabrieln again shares the lullaby he wrote for Rhonwen while Vianibrar shares a couple of children’s songs he knows. (He also shares the obligatory embarrassing anecdote about Bosabrieln as an adolescent, in proper family tradition.)

Most importantly, Vianibrar has now been introduced to the Fletchers and promises to look after Rhonwen should something happen to Bosabrieln. (Or should he achieve apotheosis and leave this world.)

All-in-all, it is a pleasant afternoon before Bosabrieln and Vianibrar take their leave and Bezaldooz teleports them back to Duchy Jepson.
