A strong arm lifted Sinead’s shoulders and a black-bearded face came into view. A cup was brought to her lips and she took a sip of sweet water.
‘Where did you find the vessel, Alric?’ asked the black bearded dwarf.
‘It was next to the spring by the Forge,’ said another voice.
Sinead’s eyes focused on the cup. The Chalice of Earthly Liberation! She sat up, almost knocking the chalice from Dorrin’s hand.
Fumbling in her cloak, she brought out The Prophesy Book. The two dwarves crouched either side of her as she turned to the new Final Chapter. Under the title there was now a drawing of a key.
Alric gasped. ‘Dorrin, fetch the scroll!’
Dorrin scurried off, returning a few moments later. He crouched down and unrolled the yellowed parchment to reveal an identical image.
‘This is our Destiny,’ he announced. ‘We’re going to forge the Freedom Key!’
