Episode 2 from the Perian’s Journey blog series –
Sue Bridgwater is one of my earliest literary cronies and my brilliant go-to-gal for all things editorial. With Jano, she was one of my first roleplay sparring partners with her bardic character Saranna, who is also a different, demi-godlike protagonist in the Skorn series.
One day, while walking past the trees on the way home they heard a voice cry out:
“Help me, please!”
They looked round, but nobody was there.
‘Perhaps it is a ghost, or a bad spirit,” said Agravin, looking
“Perhaps it is,” said Montague with a laugh. “Let’s go and see.”
They left the path slowly and moved towards the voice
“Help me, please,” it said again. They were getting nearer. There was a large tree in a small clearing and the voice seemed to come from behind it. They walked round the tree but there was no-one there.
