Cedar Stormchaser – p.14

“Those are interesting scars,” said the man. “You have had quite a long journey, and learned so much to just give up so easily.”

“Yes, I have learned much, but I still know nothing about where the storms come from, how to stop them, or why you send them.”

“Everything you need to know about that you brought with you when you came. I send them because you need them.”

Cedar looked sideways at the man. He wondered if all gods were so frustrating. “Is this a trick?”

The man laughed. “Of course it is, but that is not the most important matter at hand. You have not yet defined your then what.”

Below, the storm churned and flashed and rumbled, and Cedar worried that if he did not come up with an answer soon, it would be too late to stop. “How far is the storm from my home?”

“It was as far as you needed it to be, until we met. You chased it to the edge of the world, but now it approaches the edge of your world.” He waved a hand over the clouds and they parted a bit, and Cedar could see down through them to the ground, far below. He saw the fields that he’d come through at the beginning of his journey, and the storm they rode was moving rapidly east.
