Inside, they faced a vast, well lit, space. A long rug led to a long table full of brilliant flowers and fruits. Three men stood in front of them. It was plain that they were waiting for the group.
As they approached, one of the three men came to meet them. "Welcome to the Citadel of Hope. What may we do for you?
Garl moved forward, as the Force Ball faded away. "We are passing through. We caught in an earthquake and are seeking our way home to Britania. Thank you for your offer. Might we spend the night, then continue our journey. I am Emanuel, of TripleMind, Con and Aaron here are my companions, and fellow TripleMind members."
The priest, if that was what he was, bowed. "Of course, we are honored. If you will follow me."
Sharon put her hand on Garl's arm in warning. He nodded silently in agreement. "I know, but we must play this out. It is their world."
