Tornmile: Part 33

Back to Tornmile Part 50

Tornmile Part XXXIII: Shadows of the Past Mishak moved through the trees listening to the sounds of the forest; somewhere above him the leaves rustled as a bird flexed its wings and further away he could hear the snuffle of some creature in the undergrowth.
