Goodie was forced to sit well away from the old man as he prepared himself to confront the Raven Mockers.

“We’re wasting time,” she said for the third time. “Can’t that old man hurry up?”

“His name is Red-hand and he’s one of the few who knows the songs to defeat and kill a Raven Mocker,” the young man who was appointed her guardian said.

“But my friends are in danger,” she said.

“This has to be done if they are to be saved,” he answered. “Besides, Grandfather’s not that old. He saved me and my friends. He’ll save yours.”
