Fate's Destiny, Chapter 4: Mistaken Identities


Maldore shook his head, standing over his seated patient. "For one so accustomed to pain, you're worse than Palluck at holding still."

The strange Namican held his jaw firm. "Accustomed to certain pains. Water on injuries still isn't a favorite."

"Well, we need to clean your injury before we can travel. But you just fell?"

The visitor gave a slight bob of his shoulders. "More or less. Why, you don't believe me?"

Maldore cocked an eyebrow. "It does look like an injury from a stone, and you don't strike me as a good liar. But withholding information isn't your best strength. If our parents are missing, what happened? Who took them?"

The strange Namican looked this way and that, his voice low. "Who told you anything about anyone taking others?"

Maldore took nearby dressing, starting to bind his guest's head wound. "Our parents wouldn't wander away like that, not willingly, not with our sister... Anyway, someone had to have taken them."

The stranger widened an eye. "Solid logic. Remind me never to get into a debate with you."

Maldore nodded. "It's too bad that I'm the only one equipped with experience. But our sister does need to be cleaned right away, and she's taken to Palluck more easily than me. That's why I am treating your wound. What do I call you, anyway?"

The visitor opened his mouth but then shut it again. "Just a sort of wanderer."

Maldore shook his head, finishing the dressing. "There you are with the injury. But I'm not calling you a Wanderer. One doesn't have a care where they go, and you seem to have too much focus. If anything, you're more a Traveler of sorts."

The guest bobbed his head, taking a mildly impressed expression. "I like that."

"Traveler it is, then. Do you not remember your name, or don't wish to give it?"

The Traveler made a slight wince. "It's complicated. In a few days, it might be safer to explain everything to you and your brother. But for now, we really need to get to the meeting place."

Maldore nodded, assisting the Traveler to his paws. "If you can't tell us who you are, then at least explain the Gole?"

The Traveler gave a slight shake of his head. "Complicated as well. Besides, it will stick deeper when you two aren't doubting what I say of your parents. Oh, here come your siblings now."

Palluck, supporting his sister, entered into the room. By now, she was draped in loose clothing left by their mother, her fur dry and neat. However, what drew the Traveler's and Maldore's attention was the look on the young male Namican's face.

"She just talked. She thinks I'm Mother!"

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
