What a Marked Man has to do

Posted in: books by LaRene Ellis on April 16, 2010

This entry is part 2 of 5 in the series Stones Quest Series

“Son.” Justin held out his hand to help Ghonllier up. “I regret to say this, but you need to leave. It’s too dangerous for you to come home now.” Ghonllier accepted his hand and stood. “I cherish every moment that I have spent with you.”

The father and son hugged for what Ghonllier felt was for the last time. He felt something coming between Justin and himself and he wondered what it was.

When Ghonllier released him, Justin said, “I’m sorry there are so many negative memories for you here.”

Ghonllier hugged him again. When he pulled away, he looked into his father’s face and said, “Father, I wish she was here with me now.”

“I know. I miss her too.”

They started to walk towards the doors. Ghonllier asked, “How do I contact you now?”

“Through Dapper; we will use the ancient Eraphin language,” answered Justin.

“I’m going to miss our talks.”

Justin nodded. “With you going rogue, I could lose my job. I’m working on keeping my job, but if I can’t, Sohmer and the Senatorial Board will be forced to remove me. You’ll be on your own then.”

Ghonllier smiled and said, “Then you can join me on my ship.”

Justin grinned and responded, “I would like that.”

Book One

The new Master felt tears welling up, walking behind Justin. He forced himself to remain calm. They walked silently down the stairs. Halfway down, Justin stopped and leaned into Ghonllier. He whispered, “Son, that memory chip I gave you is the only copy of those coordinates. Do not lose it. Go there as soon as possible.”

“Why?” Ghonllier responded, whispering.

“Just go. Consider it my last order.” Ghonllier started to ask another question, but Justin stopped him. “It’s too classified to talk about it here,” his Father explained.

Justin dropped to the next step and Ghonllier stopped him. Looking back, Justin saw Ghonllier held up the chip. “I’m not going without more information.”

“Ghonllier, please don’t do this,” Justin pleaded.

“If I’m about to desert I-Force, I want to know what I’m walking into.”

Justin sighed. Walking back to Ghonllier, he leaned in to whisper in his ear. “Son, trust me. You’ll find a clue to your new crew.” He stepped away before Ghonllier could respond. “Well, I’m glad for your visit,” Justin announced loudly.

Dapper and Justin exchanged looks. Ghonllier knew his father was finished with the discussion. So he followed him out of respect.
