Welcome to the third installment of The Dark Library. This week we bring chapters 6 and 7 of DiabloWikiThe Key from the Fan Fiction Forum for you to enjoy. Links will provided here along with a small bite sized snippet or two for you to get a brief preview. Continuing in their adventure this week Shael, and Kelsia reach Dalmer’s Ferry; see what happens below….

    The Key – Chapter 6: Dalmers Ferry

      Kelsia’s idea of a city had always been that of a place very much like her own village, only larger. This was something else altogether. Dalmers Ferry spanned both banks of a great, wide river flowing east to west over the plain. Beyond the sprawling gathering of buildings near the riverbank, farming plots made a patchwork of the surrounding countryside for miles around. And the closer they came, the more immense the city seemed to grow.

      For the first time since their flight from the village, they began to see travelers on the road, moving toward or away from the city by horse and cart. Kelsia smiled at seeing a group of children playing tag near the roadside. Though she had given up on such games only a few years before, it seemed like much, much longer.

      To the left, a road drew in, converging on the city. Across the river, another road snaked eastward, a tiny ribbon in the distance. One last road went due north.

    The Key – Chapter 7: The Fog

      The cellar appeared to be empty when Kelsia descended the stairs. “Shael?” Kelsia whispered into the darkness.

      A scuffling sounded from one corner and Shael’s head peered out from behind a stack of barrels. “Kelsy!” she cried, and squeezed herself out through a narrow gap between the barrels and the wall. She threw her arms around Kelsia and hugged her tightly. Then she drew back and stared at Marius suspiciously. “He didn’t do anything to you, did he?

      “It’s fine, everything’s fine. He took me to Seith but…” she swallowed back a sudden pang of loss, “but I have to go with them, into the East.”

      Shael gave her a searching look. She nodded. “Let?s go, then. You can explain on the way. Where’s my bow?” She turned to glare at Marius as she said it.

    Next week we’ll continue the adventures of Shael and Kelsia, conveniently posted in bitesize format.
